FBI

The Epidemic of Electronic Deletions

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

The custodians of justice at the FBI, the Department of Justice, and the State Department, and their staff or family, destroyed evidence in a manner that would have likely sent any ordinary American to prison had he done the same thing. The media role in all this is surreal. Each day that “journalists” cling to the Brennan, Clapper, Clinton, Comey, McCabe, and Steele narrative is a day they must ignore that their supposed heroes are no longer denying unlawful behavior but rather accusing one another of it. And they must also forget that many of their resistance icons were not producing relevant data but instead doing their best to destroy it.

Anti-Trump Republican Congressman Justin Amash Earns A Primary Opponent

Rep. Amash and his family have been sketchy, if not downright deceptive about their business in Red China. Now, in the middle of President Trump's effort to protect American jobs and national security against Red Chinese attacks Amash suddenly thinks Trump should be impeached. Click here to learn more about Amash's opponent Michigan state Representative Jim Lower.

Which One Of The Spygate Rats Will Flip First?

Fired FBI Director James Comey, former CIA Director John Brennan, former FBI General Counsel James Baker and several others are already in the crosshairs. Given U.S. attorney John Durham’s reputation for uncovering and prosecuting FBI corruption in the Bolger case, which one of the Spygate rats is going to flip first?

Why was FBI so wrong in Trump-Russia wiretap warrant?

Byron York, Washington Examiner

We can ask: Was the information the FBI relied on true? Were the FBI's representations to the court accurate? The answers do not bode well for the bureau. It might have been entirely lawful to submit so much wrong information to the court and as a result be granted a warrant to wiretap a former Trump adviser in pursuit of a crime that had not actually occurred. And, given the extensive redactions, there is still much about the warrant that the public does not know. But even now, with the help of the Mueller report, the public knows that FBI was wrong, big time, about Carter Page. And that cannot create much confidence in the rest of the bureau's long and wide-ranging investigation of the president's 2016 campaign.

Comey Is Ultimately Screwed

Our friend former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova had a pithy assessment of where Attorney General Bill Barr’s investigation into whether the Obama-inspired spying on President Trump and his campaign were properly predicated: "Comey is ultimately screwed,” said DiGenova.

Trump Was Not Just Spied Upon But Entrapped

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

It's bad enough, as has been evident for some time, that Donald Trump and his campaign were being spied upon by our own government, but it's highly likely they were also subject to literal entrapment--at least a serious attempt was made. Someone or some group wanted to create -- or, more subtly, to encourage the creation -- of Trump-Russia collusion from the inside in order to destroy Trump before, or failing that, after he was elected. How's that for a nefarious plot? But is it true?

Will Rep. Ilhan Omar Get The Rep. Steve Stockman Treatment?

Limited government constitutional conservative Rep. Steve Stockman was the subject of a four-year investigation by the FBI for the same things Rep. Omar is accused of, however, we doubt Rep. Omar, who checks all the boxes for getting celebrity justice (Muslim, African, liberal, Democrat, woman, etc.) will get the same treatment from the FBI that Rep. Stockman got.

The Creepiest Part of the Lisa Page Transcript

David Catron, The American Spectator

Page and Strzok joined the investigation into collusion. Strzok soon indicated in a text to Page that he suspected “there was no big there there regarding any collusion with Trump” yet they both wanted to be part of the Mueller probe. So, if they had been bullied by the DOJ to let Clinton off the hook on her email server, and Strzok doubted that there was anything to the Russia collusion angle that both Clinton and the media were pushing, why would Page get further involved in another potential career killer? Love? Maybe, but I’m betting on fear.

Scams, Big and Small

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

A responsible media would call former intelligence officials out for trafficking in such thin claims, not hire them as pundits. But at a time when reporters pride themselves on rejecting “neutrality,” the Clappers, Brennans, and McCabes can count on an uncritical audience. The media has always been overwhelmingly liberal, but as Lara Logan of CBS points out it is now completely free of any journalistic restraints to mitigate that bias even slightly.

FBI’s Weaselgate

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

McCabe says that he wrote his memoir in response to Trump’s “relentless attack” on the FBI. But Trump hasn’t attacked the FBI; he has attacked those who sought to politicize it. The damage to the FBI has come not from Trump but from a cast of liberal partisans who turned it into a branch of the Democratic Party. It is the culture under Comey and McCabe that looks disturbingly abnormal and cult-like. The FBI had become under them a rogue agency with a sense of entitlement so deep that a constitutional firing could become an occasion for overthrowing a president.

The Fabrications That Almost Succeeded In Overthrowing President Trump

Andrew McCabe would have us all believe that HE believed the Steele “dirty dossier” and other purported contacts between the Trump campaign and various Russians or Russian-affiliated persons, even though he knew almost all those contacts were set-ups orchestrated by the Hillary Clinton campaign, the FBI and various other organs of the Obama administration.

The Only Way to Save the FBI Is to Expose Everything

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

How could this happen in this democratic republic?  If a thorough and complete exposition is not done of every aspect of this episode wherever it ends up, if the air is not fully cleared and miscreants punished, half the country will never, repeat never, trust the FBI or the DOJ again. That would be a catastrophe for the nation. The Federal Bureau of Investigation is currently the most important police agency not only in our country, but in the world. We're stuck with it, like it or not. Something must be done.

The Ruling Class’s Interference in Our Democracy

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

That politicized members of the FBI, operating like a rogue agency in a Third World country, wanted to void the election in effect doesn’t concern members of the media and the ruling class in the slightest. From the moment of Trump’s election, they have treated him as illegitimate and cheered every attempt to subvert his constitutional authority. All of this constitutes a much more serious threat or our democracy than anything Russia might have tried. It amounts to an attempt by a self-appointed ruling class to wrest democracy away from the people.

The Democrats’ Real Motivation For Opposing The Wall

We already know that the Obama administration abused the existing FISA protections and undertook surveillance of Sharyl Attkisson and many of President Trump’s political associates, and maybe even then-candidate Donald Trump as well. How long will it take before the Democrats’ surveillance regime moves beyond the border zone to encompass the entire country?

Sharyl Attkisson: The Government Has Rigged The Rules To Avoid Accountability

After years without turning over a single document in response to dozens of Sharyl Attkisson’s subpoenas, the government now argues that her case should be dismissed, in part, because she hasn’t learned the names of the “John Doe” federal agents to insert in the lawsuit; names which only the government knows and has refused to divulge.

New Poll: Most Americans Believe the Government Spies on Journalists, Like Sharyl Attkisson

A new poll from Rasmussen Reports confirms the damage done by the Obama-era abuses by the FBI and other intelligence agencies and gives further evidence that Americans are on the side of investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson and others who are trying to rip the veil of secrecy off Obama’s domestic spying operations.

The Paranoid Style at the FBI

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The gross and abusive politicization at the FBI is the obvious story here, yet the media portrays the probe with somber respect, as if it still reflects badly on Trump rather than an out-of-control FBI. Were official Washington not in the grip of obsessive Trump hatred, it would see the story as a stunning indictment of the FBI for squandering its objectivity in the pursuit of low and paranoid politics. In the past, the media chastised paranoid FBI agents for their “McCarthyism”; now they turn them into heroes, even as their suspicions prove embarrassingly hollow.

The Persecution Of Congressman Steve Stockman

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Steve Stockman is an old friend, a fellow limited government constitutional conservative, and the victim of a corrupt government vendetta. I urge you to go to the Conservative Legal Defense and Education Fund’s Patriot Defense Fund website and make your most generous donation to assist in Steve Stockman’s legal defense.

Spawn Of The Fake Steele Dossier

What research on the Steele dossier has slowly revealed is the scope and logistics of the information operation designed to sabotage an American election. Players include the press, political operatives from both parties, and law enforcement and intelligence officials.

The Crime OF Being Trump

The prosecutorial harassment of Donald Trump, those related to Donald Trump or in Donald Trump’s “circle” is an outrageous perversion of justice. What's more, the opprobrium heaped on the Trump family by the establishment media and popular culture has also claimed entirely innocent victims, such as Josh Trump of Delaware.
