The Last Trusted Prosecutor in Washington

Jim Geraghty, National Review

If Durham chooses to bring charges against any official who launched the Trump probe, history suggests he is extremely likely to persuade a jury to convict the accused and sustain those convictions upon appeal. And if he does not bring charges, it is extremely unlikely that any other prosecutor could have succeeded; regardless of what the official did, the evidence would not be there to convict or sustain a conviction. John Durham’s career is full of big, high-stakes, politically charged cases, but this one is the biggest, highest-stakes, and most politically charged of all. Luckily, it seems like his whole life has prepared him for this moment.

The Assaults On Trump Explained

What we have been witnessing is not American politics as usual, but a sophisticated intelligence operation to destabilize and overthrow the legitimate government of the United States. Each step along the path to impeachment is exactly what the CIA or the intelligence agency of a foreign power would do to destabilize and eventually replace the leader of an unfriendly government.

Senate GOP Needs A Spine Transplant

It’s time Republican Senators got a spine transplant from House Members like Reps. Andy Biggs, Matt Gaetz, Steve Scalise, Devin Nunes and John Ratcliffe. We urge CHQ readers and friends to call Republican Senators, the toll-free Capitol Switchboard number is (1-866-220-0044). Tell them this is a fight to the death for the future of constitutional government and you want them in it on President Trump’s side.

#WheresLindsey

The Twitter hashtag #WheresLindsey has had over 100,000 associated tweets, we urge our friends and followers on Twitter tweet this article using that hashtag. In the alternative, the toll-free Capitol Switchboard number is (1-866-220-0044), please call Sen. Graham and urge him to subpoena all the miscreants he has promised to bring before his Committee, but whom he has so far failed to put under oath in front of the American people.

Ken Cuccinelli For Secretary Of Homeland Security

Our preferred replacement for acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin McAleenan is acting Director of the Citizenship and Immigration Services Ken Cuccinelli. Cuccinelli has three things that McAleenan lacked – a commitment to the Trump border security agenda, a willingness to fight Democrats and the Republican establishment to make the President’s agenda a reality, and the effective TV presence necessary to sell it to the American people.

Ukrainegate Shows We Need Fred Fleitz As Director Of National Intelligence

The United States needs an effective and uncorrupted intelligence apparatus to play its part in defending the nation, and Fred Fleitz has shown himself to be an adept and able administrator capable of doing the housecleaning necessary to air out the stench of Leftwing partisan politics in the intelligence community.

Conservatives Unravel Deep State Coup Against Trump

In this long article we summarize the tangled backstory conservatives have been able to unravel about the latest Deep State coup against President Trump. The details they have developed reveal a breathtaking assault on the Constitution by a conspiracy of Democrats and Far Left operatives in the intelligence agencies, in Congress and in Soros-funded organizations.

What Conservatives Are Saying About Impeachment

We're with our friend Mark Levin: What a stupid, baseless, phony scandal the Democrats, Nevertrumpers & media are trying to promote. Endless conga line of Democrats and the like crying crocodile tears while covering up for the crooked Biden family. It won’t work.

Is the Fed Meddling in Our Elections?

The Federal Reserve isn’t the only Deep State institution that would like to affect the 2020 election in opposition to President Trump – Silicon Valley comes quickly to mind as an equally malign influence – however, as our friend Dr. Ron Paul observed in a recent  column, they are not a state within a state in the same way that the Federal Reserve is.

McCabe and Papadopoulos: Two-Tiered Justice

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

People see the kid-gloves approach to the Clinton emails investigation, and they can’t square it with the aggression of the Trump–Russia probe. They see the laws contorted to let Mrs. Clinton slide, while the screws get put to Michael Flynn and Paul Manafort over the Logan Act and the Foreign Agent Registration Act – statutes the Justice Department almost never invokes. They see the false-statements investigations of Andy McCabe and George Papadopoulos and think, “Hey, wait a second …” “Equal justice under the law” is not supposed to be an aspiration or a quaint slogan. It is supposed to be a guarantee.

What we need to know from the Horowitz report

Byron York, Washington Examiner

There will be much to learn in Inspector General Michael Horowitz's upcoming report on the Trump-Russia investigation, but most of it will likely boil down to just two questions. One, how much did the Obama Justice Department spy on the Trump campaign? And two, was it justified? Even if were entirely declassified, Horowitz will not tell the whole story of spying and the 2016 election. The Horowitz report will be an important step in answering the questions of how much spying took place and whether it was justified. It's long past time Americans learned what happened.

Is Our Two-Tiered System Of Justice Permanent?

There are only two people who can assure that this two-tiered system of justice does not become a permanent feature of American society: President Trump and Attorney General William Barr. We urge both of those good men to act with firmness and alacrity to ferret out, punish and purge from the government all of those implicated in the soft coup against President Trump.

The Mueller Farce Exposes The Enemies Of The People

Yesterday’s House hearings featuring testimony by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller offered nothing of substance regarding the charges fabricated to impede Donald Trump’s presidency. However, they did provide beyond a shadow of a doubt proof of the complete corruption and utter cynicism of the Democrats and their allies in the establishment media.

Diana West: Barr 'will keep a lid on questions about this Special Counsel investigation'

While many conservatives have applauded Attorney Barr’s comments during his recent CBS News interview, our friend author Diana West parsed his words closely and concluded they indicate that, rather than blowing away the smokescreen masking the Deep State conspiracy against President Trump, Mr. Barr is intent on managing it.

Mueller’s Bitter End

Beyond infuriating Democrats Mueller stated only the obvious. However, he created a further problem for Trump-haters because buried in Mueller’s statement was an important statement of fact that further exonerates President Trump.

Trump Counterattacks Using Democrat's Hypocrisy

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

With our glorious ruling class, it’s all lies, it’s all garbage, and Trump gleefully exposes it all. Mueller declares him innocent and the Democrats claim that this actually shows Trump is more guilty than they ever imagined. People notice when they are being scammed – well, not stupid liberal people who buy into nonsense like socialism, global warming and the idea that men can have babies, but Normal people do. What Trump is doing by highlighting their hapless hypocrisy is undermining not just the garbage policies that make up the Democrat dogma but the entire notion that our liberal elite somehow consists of our betters.

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy

Our friend Joe diGenova has described former CIA Director John Brennan as “the mastermind of” the “conspiracy to frame Donald Trump.” However, as a “mastermind” Brennan falls far short – he can’t even make-up an original lie to cover his tracks, his story about a high-level source close to Putin follows the “magic source” plotline of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy so closely.

Federal Rats Are Fleeing the Sinking Collusion Ship

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

How can we tell that the former accusers are now terrified of becoming the accused? Because suddenly the usual band of former Obama officials and Trump accusers have largely given up on their allegations that Trump was or is a Russian asset. Instead, John Brennan, James Clapper, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, and Rod Rosenstein are now beginning to accuse one another of wrongdoing. Even their progressive media handlers are starting to sense the desperation in their new yarns — and the possibility that these hired-gun analysts or guests were themselves guilty of crimes and were using their media platforms to fashion their own defense. The end of the Mueller melodrama has marked the beginning of real fear in Washington.

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?

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.
