Intelligence agencies

We Need an Investigation of the Entire Justice Department Now

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The time has come for a thorough airing to renew the trust of the citizenry. That means a special investigator, but one with a wide berth to look into the entire DOJ and FBI, its patterns and practices, and, let's be honest, our intelligence agencies as well. We're living in a bureaucratic nightmare.

The Clintons Corrupt Everything They Touch

Until Democrats rid themselves of the Clintons, and stop covering for them, the Democratic Party cannot be considered a legitimate political party; it is merely one cog in a vast conspiracy to justify and cover up the Clintons' crimes.

Why Does Anyone Listen to James Clapper Anymore?

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

To many of us, the former DNI represents everything wrong with our government. He is The Swamp squared -- or perhaps cubed. Although no doubt he believes at least some of his calumnies and exaggerations, I have a theory about why he's making them and it's simple. Clapper wants do everything possible to deflect attention from his own dishonesty onto whomever (Trump, in this instance) in order to resurrect his own reputation.

Americans Deserve to Know Who Is Leaking to the Press

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

People inside the executive branch are daily providing fresh meat to feed the scandal. Anti-Trump media are transfixed by it. It is the Watergate of their generation. They can smell the blood in the water. The Pulitzers are calling. And they love it, for they loathe Donald Trump both for who he is and what he stands for.

Was The Russian Lawyer's Meeting With Donald Trump Jr Part Of A Deep State Plot?

Connect the dots and it looks like the same group of dictator-friendly Democrats who got the the spurious dossier on then-candidate Donald Trump into the news have chosen this moment to leak information on Donald Jr. to keep the phony Russian collusion story alive.

They Were Listening to Your People, Donald

R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr., The American Spectator

Susan Rice had the names sent around to certain Defense Department personnel, to James Clapper then-Director of National Intelligence, and to John Brennan, then-CIA Director, along with Ben Rhodes, then Rice’s deputy. Obviously there are going to be a lot of stars from the Obama years in need of lawyers. One question does bother me: how could so many Obama aides be so stupid as to eavesdrop in team Trump even after Trump won the election?

Trump is Right: Obama Monitored the Communications of Political Opponents

Having been caught in 2015 in what was a major breach of the laws governing collection of intelligence on what are referred to as “US persons” Obama didn’t cease and desist; he refined his techniques and deployed them against the Trump campaign and transition.

It’s No Revelation That Intelligence Agencies Are Politicized

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Careerism and ideology at the top sometimes undermine the work of patriotic and gifted case officers in the rank and file. The integrity of intelligence depends on the probity of individual intelligence chiefs — and the degree to which administration operatives are kept away from intelligence directors. Reform requires honesty rather than the present self-righteous hypocrisy.
