House Judiciary Committee officially approves effort to launch investigations of Comey, Lynch

pic418.jpg

Matthew Boyle (Breitbart) is reporting that the House Judiciary Committee has officially approved an effort to launch an investigation into former FBI director James Comey"s leaking activities and apparent mishandling of a federal investigation by former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

The new investigative effort, authorized by the passage of the amendment in the Judiciary Committee, 16-13 along partisan lines, digs deep requesting documents and information related to Comey"s leaks of conversations he had with President Donald Trump before Trump fired him. According to the Washington Post, Democrats on the committee were infuriated Republicans pressed forward with the probe.

"This is the most astonishing moment I"ve ever experienced in the Judiciary Committee," one Democrat, Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN), said. "To take a question about the firing of James B. Comey and turn it into a question about Hillary Clinton? The chairman has left the room. Justice has left this room. Common sense has left this room. A lot of stuff has left this room, and maybe never entered it."

The amendment was offered by Reps. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Jim Jordan (R-OH), Andy Biggs (R-AZ), and Mike Johnson (R-LA). It passed Wednesday evening, authorizing the opening of the Judiciary Committee probe. It remains to be seen if subjects of the investigation will cooperate, and if they do not cooperate it remains to be seen if the Committee will use its broad subpoena power to compel document production and testimony.

It also remains to be seen if House Speaker Paul Ryan will support the probe, or intervene and use his power to block it. Ryan"s spokesman has not responded to Breitbart News"s requests for comment on this matter.

 

"There is little question that members of Obama"s administration repeatedly broke protocol throughout their investigations into Hillary Clinton," Johnson told Breitbart News in an emailed statement. "What is unclear, however, is why we have received few answers over the past twelve months to our questions about their actions, especially concerning the former attorney general and FBI director. The House Judiciary Committee has continued to seek answers on various issues of interest stemming from their hearings and oversight responsibilities. This is simply an effort to finally get some of those important questions answered."

The effort was first reported by Breitbart News on Tuesday, when a draft copy of the amendment was circulated demonstrating these conservatives" efforts to probe deep into the left"s network of leaks and corruption.

The probe is wide-ranging and includes a mandate for the House Judiciary Committee to dig deep into Lynch"s order to Comey that he should refer to the criminal investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton"s illicit email server as a "matter," not an "investigation." Clinton was the failed 2016 Democratic presidential nominee.

The probe also will press for document production regarding Comey"s communication with Columbia University Law Professor Daniel Richman, Comey"s friend, of conversations Comey had with President Trump. Richman was the vessel through which Comey leaked to the media details of those conversations with the president after his firing, with an apparent intent of using the media pressure from said leaks to spark the launching of the special counsel investigation of the Russia scandal. That special counsel investigation is being led by Comey"s longtime friend Robert Mueller, another former FBI director.

The investigation will also, per the amendment passed by the House Judiciary Committee, dig into Comey"s decision to "usurp the authority" of Lynch by making his "unusual announcement" that Hillary Clinton would not face criminal charges over the email scandal. It will inspect Comey"s knowledge of the firm Fusion GPS, the firm that made the fake news anti-Trump dossier that Comey brought to Trump"s attention when he was president-elect, and look at any "collusion" between Comey and Mueller -- the special counsel leading the Russia probe now -- especially regarding Comey"s leak through Richman to the media.

The probe, too, will look into Comey"s potential knowledge of "unmasking" of intelligence and surveillance collected on Donald Trump"s campaign or transition teams -- and specifically any role that former National Security Adviser Susan Rice played in that.

But that"s not all: The probe will dig into potential immunity deals given to "co-conspirators" in Hillary Clinton"s email server scandal, including specifically Cheryl Mills, Heather Samuelson, and John Bentel.

It will also look into matters related to the Clinton Foundation"s influence from foreign governments and specifically the Uranium One deal exposed by Clinton Cash -- whereby Russians obtained ownership in U.S. uranium assets. And it will investigate the infamous tarmac meeting between Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch in Phoenix at Sky Harbor International Airport.

Biggs, one of the sponsors of the now approved amendment to officially launch the committee probe, told Breitbart News in an interview before the measure was introduced that the American people want answers to these questions.

"My constituents ask the same questions that so many people want to know the answer to, and that is why have all these investigations stopped?" Biggs said. "There was a whole lot of fire there and they just seemed to end when the new administration came in and I think there"s two or three reasons," Biggs said in a brief phone interview on Tuesday afternoon. "Number one, I think you want justice and that leads to number two -- if you don"t have justice and you"re not following the rule of law then government and lawmakers and those who enforce the law are held in derision by the public. They lose faith and confidence in those they elect and so I think this is really important to get back to those basics and find out what happened and so that"s why I think it"s important."

Gaetz, another original sponsor, said in an emailed statement that this is a step in the right direction. "It"s time for Republicans in Congress to start playing offense," Gaetz said.

And Jordan, the fourth original sponsor, added that Democrats have for years "obstructed justice," but they will no longer succeed.

"For the past several years, Democrats have obstructed justice and blocked every Congressional investigation imaginable," Jordan said in an emailed statement to Breitbart News. "Now they want to investigate? Ok, let"s investigate! Both parties have criticized James Comey over the past year for his performance as FBI director. Even Sen. Feinstein says there should be an investigation into Loretta Lynch and James Comey"s handling of the Clinton investigation. Let"s have a special counsel for that and see how serious Congressional Democrats are about getting to the truth."

Another congressional investigation?

Remind me, what was the outcome of the Fast & Furious, IRS and Benghazi investigations?

I can't hear you!

Lynch ordered Manafort's phone tapped during Veselnitskaya meeting

pic337.jpg

Pacific Pundit is reporting that it's pretty much confirmed now. The Donald Trump Jr. interview with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya was a set up job. It included not only slimy Democrats, but also slimy Republicans like John McCain.

For his part, Donald Trump Jr. took the bait and met with Natalia Veselnitskaya for about 20 minutes, gaining no knowledge about Hillary Clinton. Now, it's the media and Democrat's big story, despite the fact this was a set up from day one.

Now we know Loretta Lynch had Paul Manafort's phone tapped during the meeting, as he attended it as did Jared Kushner.

Today, Fusion GPS employee Rinat Akhmetshin today confirmed his attendance at a meeting with Donald Trump Jr, Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner along with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.

If true, this FISA warrant would have been carried out under Loretta Lynch, Attorney General to Barack Obama. Former FBI Director James Comey has testified under oath to instances of collusion between AG Lynch and the Clinton campaign during 2016, as well as obstruction of justice in the Clinton investigation.

Yesterday, multiple news agencies and President Trump all stated that Veselnitskaya was granted special permission to enter the US by Attorney General Lynch after her visa had been initially blocked.

FISA transcripts of the meeting in June 2016 may have also served the basis of the FBI's investigation into the Trump campaign's ties to Russia, now headed by Bob Mueller.

The normally loud mouthed Loretta Lynch has sure been silent during all this Donald Trump Jr. situation. Gee, I wonder why. I'll be honest. When Loretta Lynch was chosen to replace the sloth Eric Holder, I knew she was bad, but I didn't think anywhere as bad as this. I thought she might even be a little better than sloth Holder.

Boy, was I wrong.

Legal?

If Brower's tweet is proven correct and Paul Manafort's phone was being tapped during the meeting - it means Loretta Lynch's surveillance of Manafort, an American, was done without a FISA warrant - as the first FISA request by the Obama administration came in July, the same month as the meeting in Trump Tower.

This also calls into question the June 27th, 2016 "tarmac" meeting between Lynch and Bill Clinton, which would have come after the meeting at Trump Tower. Was Lynch reporting the results of the alleged surveillence to Clinton?

FISA Timeline

As radio host Mark Levin detailed in March (via Breitbart):

Drawing on sources including the New York Times and the Washington Post, Levin described the case against Obama so far, based on what is already publicly known. The following is an expanded version of that case, including events that Levin did not mention specifically but are important to the overall timeline.

1. June 2016: FISA request. The Obama administration files a request with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) to monitor communications involving Donald Trump and several advisers. The request, uncharacteristically, is denied.

2. July: Russia joke. Wikileaks releases emails from the Democratic National Committee that show an effort to prevent Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) from winning the presidential nomination. In a press conference, Donald Trump refers to Hillary Clinton's own missing emails, joking: "Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing." That remark becomes the basis for accusations by Clinton and the media that Trump invited further hacking.

3. October: Podesta emails. In October, Wikileaks releases the emails of Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, rolling out batches every day until the election, creating new mini-scandals. The Clinton campaign blames Trump and the Russians.

4. October: FISA request. The Obama administration submits a new, narrow request to the FISA court, now focused on a computer server in Trump Tower suspected of links to Russian banks. No evidence is found -- but the wiretaps continue, ostensibly for national security reasons, Andrew McCarthy at National Review later notes. The Obama administration is now monitoring an opposing presidential campaign using the high-tech surveillance powers of the federal intelligence services.

Huge if true...

Trump wants to know why Loretta Lynch helped the "Russian lawyer" get into the U.S.

pic335.jpg

Fox News is reportingthat President Trump lashed out at the media and the Obama administration Thursday over the criticism his team is facing for his eldest son's 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer thought to have damaging information on Hillary Clinton.

At a joint press conference with the French president in Paris, Trump said the media are making "a very big deal over something that really a lot of people would do."

He then turned his focus to Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch, saying he had "heard" Lynch was the one to approve Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya's visa.

This is an apparent reference to reports that Lynch signed off on granting the attorney special "parole" to be in the country -- though it remains unclear whether she had permission to be in the U.S. at the time of the June 2016 meeting.

"Somebody said that her visa or her passport to come into the country was approved by Attorney General Lynch, now maybe that's wrong, I just heard that a little while ago … [that] she was here because of Lynch."

Trump also, as he has in recent days, defended Donald Trump Jr. against criticism.

"My son is a wonderful young man. He took a meeting with a Russian lawyer, not a government lawyer but a Russian lawyer," Trump said in the press conference with President Emmanuel Macron. "From a practical standpoint most people would have taken that meeting, it's called opposition research or research into your opponent.

The plot thickens -- Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya may have been in the US illegally

pic324.jpg

Cristina Laila (GatewayPundit) is reporting that the Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr., Natalia Veselnitskaya was denied a U.S. visa in 2015. However, she was granted temporary "immigration parole" by New York federal prosecutors.

Her special permission to enter the U.S. expired in early 2016 and her request to extend her parole was denied. However, Natalia was able to enter the U.S. in June of 2016 to meet with Don Jr. at Trump Tower, New York.

The question is, with no visa, how was she able to enter the U.S.?

The far-left Daily Beast reported:

She (Natalia) then asked federal prosecutors for permission to enter the U.S. to work on behalf of a client in a Manhattan. Prosecutors granted Veselnitskaya temporary "immigration parole" in late 2015 but it expired in early 2016, the U.S. Attorney's Office of the Southern District of New York told The Daily Beast.

Veselnitskaya's parole was not renewed, the U.S. Attorney's Office added.

That raises the question of how Veselnitskaya was able to enter the U.S. in June 2016 when she visited Trump Tower.

The State Department would not confirm or deny whether Veselnitskaya applied again for a visa in 2016, let alone if a visa was granted. A spokesperson told The Daily Beast the State Department could not comment due to privacy considerations. Veselnitskaya also did not respond to requests for comment.

In January 2016, Veselnitskaya filed a declaration to extend her parole past that month. The U.S. Attorney's Office objected.

Obama's DoJ cleared the Russian lawyer initially to enter the U.S. according to an exclusive report from The Hill:

The Russian lawyer who penetrated Donald Trump's inner circle was initially cleared into the United States by the Justice Department under "extraordinary circumstances" before she embarked on a lobbying campaign last year that ensnared the president's eldest son, members of Congress, journalists and State Department officials, according to court and Justice Department documents and interviews.

This revelation means it was the Obama Justice Department that enabled the newest and most intriguing figure in the Russia-Trump investigation to enter the country without a visa. Later, a series of events between an intermediary for the attorney and the Trump campaign ultimately led to the controversy surrounding the president's eldest son.

Just five days after meeting in June 2016 at Trump Tower with Donald Trump Jr., presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner and then Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Moscow attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya showed up in Washington in the front row of a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on Russia policy, video footage of the hearing shows.

She also helped arrange an event at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. where pro-Russian supporters showed a movie that challenged the underpinnings of the U.S. human rights law known as the Magnitysky Act, which Russian leader Vladimir Putin has reviled and tried to reverse.

As previously reported, Natalia Veselnitskaya filed an affidavit in a federal case in New York describing how she managed to get special permission to enter the United States after the visa denial to help represent a Russian company called Prevezon Holdings owned by the Russian businessman Denis Katsyv in a case brought against it by U.S. prosecutors.

Strangely, she was detained and strip searched by Heathrow Airport officials based on the parole number that the U.S. assigned her…so she claims (reported by Circa News):

"I was detained for two hours by Heathrow Airport officials who specifically targeted me on the basis of the parole number that the United States Government had assigned to me. During this detention I was unjustifiably subjected to a strip search, for no apparent reason. I should not be subjected to such humiliation when I have been promised entry into the United States to defend against the scandalous accusations in this lawsuit on behalf of my clients."

Loretta Lynch helped Russian lawyer who met with Don Jr. enter the U.S.

pic318.jpg
This looks more and more like a Dem dirty trick

A new bombshell report by The Hill calls into question why Loretta Lynch allowed the Russian lawyer who met with Don Jr. into the United States under "extraordinary circumstances."

The Hill is reporting that the Russian lawyer who penetrated Donald Trump's inner circle was initially cleared into the United States by the Justice Department under "extraordinary circumstances" before she embarked on a lobbying campaign last year that ensnared the president's eldest son, members of Congress, journalists and State Department officials, according to court and Justice Department documents and interviews.

This revelation means it was the Obama Justice Department that enabled the newest and most intriguing figure in the Russia-Trump investigation to enter the country without a visa.

Later, a series of events between an intermediary for the attorney and the Trump campaign ultimately led to the controversy surrounding the president's eldest son.

Just five days after meeting in June 2016 at Trump Tower with Donald Trump Jr., presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner and then Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Moscow attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya showed up in Washington in the front row of a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on Russia policy, video footage of the hearing shows.

She also engaged in a pro-Russia lobbying campaign and attended an event at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. where Russian supporters showed a movie that challenged the underpinnings of the U.S. human rights law known as the Magnitysky Act, which Russian leader Vladimir Putin has reviled and tried to reverse.

The Magnitsky Act imposed financial and other sanctions on Russia for alleged human rights violations connected to the death of a Russian lawyer who claimed to uncover fraud during Putin's reign. Russia retaliated after the law was passed in 2012 by suspending Americans' ability to adopt Russian children.

At least five congressional staffers and State Department officials attended that movie showing, according to a Foreign Agent Registration Act complaint filed with the Justice Department about Veselnitskaya's efforts.

And Veselnitskaya also attended a dinner with the chairman of the House subcommittee overseeing Russia policy, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) and roughly 20 other guests at a dinner club frequented by Republicans.

In an interview with The Hill on Wednesday, Rohrabacher said, "There was a dinner at the Capitol Hill Club here with about 20 people. I think I was the only congressman there. They were talking about the Magnitysky case. But that wasn't just the topic. There was a lot of other things going on. So I think she was there but I don't remember any type of conversation with her between us. But I understand she was at the table."

Rohrabacher said he believed Veselnitskaya and her U.S. colleagues, which included former Democratic Congressman Ronald Dellums, were lobbying other lawmakers to reverse the Magnitysky Act and restore the ability of Americans to adopt Russian children that Moscow had suspended.

"I don't think this was very heavily lobbied at all compared with the other issues we deal with," he said.

As for his former congressional colleague Dellums, Rohrabacher said he recalled having a conversation about the Magnitsky Act and the adoption issue, "Ron and I like each other … I have to believe he was hired a lobbyist but I don't know."

Veselnitskaya did not return a call seeking comment Wednesday at her Moscow office. Dellums also did not return a call to his office seeking comment.

But in an interview with NBC News earlier this week, Veselnitskaya acknowledged her contacts with Donald Trump Jr. and in Washington were part of a lobbying campaign to get members of Congress and American political figures to see "the real circumstances behind the Magnitsky Act."

That work was a far cry from the narrow reason the U.S. government initially gave for allowing Veselnitskaya into the U.S. in late 2015, according to federal court records.

The Moscow lawyer had been turned down for a visa to enter the U.S. lawfully but then was granted special immigration parole by then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch for the limited purpose of helping a company owned by Russian businessman Denis Katsyv, her client, defend itself against a Justice Department asset forfeiture case in federal court in New York City.

During a court hearing in early January 2016 as Veselnitskaya's permission to stay in the country was about to expire, federal prosecutors described how rare the grant of parole immigration was as Veselnitskaya pleaded for more time to remain in the United States.

"In October the government bypassed the normal visa process and gave a type of extraordinary permission to enter the country called immigration parole," Assistant U.S. Attorney Paul Monteleoni explained to the judge during a hearing Jan. 6, 2016.

"That's a discretionary act that the statute allows the Attorney General to do in extraordinary circumstances. In this case, we did that so that Mr. Katsyv could testify. And we made the further accommodation of allowing his Russian lawyer into the country to assist," he added.

The prosecutor said Justice was willing to allow the Russian lawyer to enter the United States again as the trial in the case approached so she could help prepare and attend the proceedings.

The court record indicates the presiding judge asked the Justice Department to extend Veselnitskaya's immigration parole another week until he decided motions in the case. There are no other records in the court file indicating what happened with that request or how Veselnitskaya appeared in the country later that spring.

The U.S. Attorney's office in New York confirmed Wednesday to The Hill that it let Veselnitskaya into the country on a grant of immigration parole from October 2015 to early January 2016.

Justice Department and State Department officials could not immediately explain how the Russian lawyer was still in the country in June for the meeting with Donald Trump Jr. and the events in Washington D.C.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) has demanded the U.S. government provide him all records on how Veselnitskaya entered and traveled in the U.S., a request that could shed additional light on her activities.

FBI documents show the Hillary Clinton investigation was "flawed"

pic321.jpg
This guy is a committed Democratic operative

Kristina Wong (Breitbart) is reporting that newly released documents from the FBI's criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton's mishandling of highly classified materials highlight a "serious, but flawed investigation hindered by a lack of cooperation," according to a new report.

Some of the 42 pages are marked "grand jury material," indicating that the FBI considered the investigation serious enough to prosecute before a grand jury, according to a report by Fox News.

One document shows that one of Clinton's private attorneys, Katherine Turner, had agreed to turn over one of Clinton's non-secure Apple iPads and two of her BlackBerrys to the FBI.

However, neither smartphone had SIM cards or Secure Digital (SD) cards, the report said. A total of 13 mobile devices identified by the FBI as potentially using clintonemail.com addresses were never located by Clinton's lawyers, according to government watchdog group Judicial Watch's President Tom Fitton.

Some of those devices were pounded with hammers after Clinton's homebrew servers went down or after news that Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal's email had been hacked, the report said.

"We are presuming there are still 13 devices at issue," Fitton told Fox News. "The new records show how badly the Obama Justice Department and FBI mishandled the Clinton email investigation."

There are 177 redactions in the documents, including of information that would "disclose investigation techniques."

Fitton said the FBI was played by Clinton's lawyers and didn't care, and he called for an audit of the investigation.

"The Trump Justice Department needs to audit this mess and figure out if the Clinton matters need to be reopened or reinvigorated," he said.

The report notes then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch's meeting on the tarmac with Bill Clinton in Phoenix, Arizona, just eight days before then-FBI Director James Comey announced he would not recommend prosecution of Clinton.

Comey would later testify that Lynch, his then-boss, directed him to use the term "matter" instead of "investigation" when discussing the investigation into Clinton, and he complied.

The documents were released just before the nominee for FBI Director Christopher Wray appeared before his confirmation hearing.

Two former FBI agents told Fox News they hope that "the atmosphere is changed with a new director."

New FBI document dump reveals secrets of flawed Hillary Clinton investigation

pic310.jpg 

Cristina Laila (GatewayPundit) is reporting that over 40 pages of heavily redacted documents from the FBI's criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton's mishandling of classified information shows just how badly Obama's DOJ and FBI handled it.

Hillary Clinton's lawyers were uncooperative and played the FBI. None of the smartphones received from the law firm contained SIM cards or Secure Digital (SD) cards, and a total of 13 mobile devices identified by the FBI as potentially using clintonemail.com email addresses were never located by Williams & Connelly,.

Fox News reports:

Some 42 pages of highly redacted documents from the FBI's criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton's mishandling of highly classified materials paint a picture of a serious, but flawed investigation hindered by a lack of cooperation, according to a key watchdog group.

The materials, all part of the probe dubbed "Midyear Exam," included several documents designated as "grand jury material," indicating the potential seriousness of the investigation that would ultimately be ended by FBI director James Comey in July, then restarted for a brief period in October before being shut down for good.

One redacted exchange reveals a back and forth subpoena response to the FBI from one of Mrs. Clinton's private attorneys, Katherine Turner, a partner at Washington DC powerhouse firm Williams & Connolly. In the document, Turner agreed to turn over one of Mrs. Clinton's non-secure Apple iPads and two of her BlackBerrys to the FBI.

But neither smartphone received from the law firm contain SIM cards or Secure Digital (SD) cards, and a total of 13 mobile devices identified by the FBI as potentially using clintonemail.com email addresses were never located by Williams & Connelly.

President of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton said, "We are presuming there are still 13 devices at issue. The new records show how badly the Obama Justice Department and FBI mishandled the Clinton email investigation. They get the equivalent of wiped phones from the Clinton lawyers and do nothing?"

"They (the FBI) were played by Mrs. Clinton's lawyers and didn't care," Fitton continued. "The Trump Justice Department needs to audit this mess and figure out if the Clinton matters need to be reopened or reinvigorated."

How the government and media is handling Trump as compared to Hillary is quite amazing.

Hillary has received monies from Russia and other foreign countries, conspired, violated all kinds of laws and regulations with her home-brew email server, destroyed evidence and perjured herself and all you can hear is crickets.

Trump has had no dealings with the government of Russia or its politicians, and all you can hear from the Democrats, the media, and even a smattering of Republicans, is "collusion," "treason," and "impeach."

It boggles the mind.

Just watch this video.

Lindsey Graham was talking about Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian lawyer and when he began talking about Hillary Clinton’s campaign, MSNBC cut his audio:

Amazing! Simple amazing!

New holes in Loretta Lynch's story on Hillary's email investigation could present major legal problems

Cristina Laila (GatewayPundit) is reporting that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch is denying allegations she assured the Clinton camp that the FBI's email probe would not go too far. This directly contradicts Comey's claim that Lynch did interfere with the 2016 presidential election by assuring Hillary's camp that the probe would be halted.

Fired FBI Director, James Comey had a SECOND meeting with former Attorney General Loretta Lynch where he confronted her about her election interference. During the conversation, Comey told lawmakers he confronted Lynch with a highly sensitive piece of evidence, a communication between two political figures that suggested Lynch had agreed to put the kibosh on any prosecution of Clinton, Circa News reported.

pic275.jpg

Fox News reports:

Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch is denying allegations she assured the Clinton campaign that the FBI's email server investigation would not go too far.

The Senate Judiciary Committee is investigating a document which alleges Lynch contacted Amanda Renteria, a Clinton campaign operative.

"To the best of her knowledge and recollection, neither Ms. Lynch nor any representative of the Office of the Attorney General discussed the Clinton email investigation with Ms. Renteria, Representative Wasserman Schultz or her staff, or any DNC official," Lynch's spokesman countered.

In testimony before a House committee last year, Lynch stated she had not spoken to any members of the campaign or anyone affiliated with the campaign during the investigation.

Lynch is expected to be called before the Senate panel to testify on the matter.

Paul Sperry of the New York Post reports:

The committee also wants to know if Lynch or any of her aides were in contact with former DNC chief Debbie Wasserman Schultz regarding the Clinton email investigation, according to a three-page list of questions that Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley and ranking Democrat Dianne Feinstein recently sent to Lynch at her New York apartment.

Senate investigators have combed through a transcript of Lynch's testimony before the House Judiciary Committee in July 2016. In retrospect, several of her statements strain credulity. But one in particular stands out, and could present legal problems for Lynch.

The committee, however, now knows of a document obtained by the FBI reportedly showing a Democratic operative's claim that Lynch had privately assured Renteria that the Justice Department "would not push too deeply" into the investigation of Clinton's private email server, which contained top secret information from the State Department.

Senator Burr says the Senate Intelligence Committee will get Comey's memos

pic183.jpg

Carter (GatewayPundit) is reporting that the Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Richard Burr told Politico on Wednesday that the panel reached an agreement wherein they will receive the memos former FBI Director James Comey wrote.

The memos allegedly recount the interactions Comey had with President Trump. Both the House and Senate committees are looking into alleged Russian interference in the election and have continually tried to obtain them.

Burr commented that "I've got a commitment" but did not mention who committed the memos.

Comey's June testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee was a major let down for those looking to catch the president, but it also opened up new angles to the investigation and it was revealed that Comey gave some of his memos to friend Daniel Richman in order to leak to the New York Times.

I have never seen anybody make the observation that Comey's "memos" are subjective.

They are Comey's version of what happened during his conversations with the president.

That Comey said "X, Y and/or Z" doesn't make it factual.

Remember Rashomon?

Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe faces THREE separate federal inquiries into his behavior

pic169.jpg

 Cristina Laila (GatewayPundit) is reporting that acting FBI Director, Andrew McCabe is facing THREE separate federal inquiries into allegations about his behavior, Circa Newsreports.

As reported earlier, acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe is being investigated by the Office of U.S. Counsel violating the Hatch Act according to a new report by Circa News.

Via Circa News:

Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, a central player in the Russia election case, is the focus of three separate federal administrative inquiries into allegations about his behavior as a senior bureau executive, according to documents and interviews.

The allegations being reviewed range from sexual discrimination to improper political activity, the documents show

The inquiries remain open but so far there have not been any adverse findings against the senior FBI executive, who soared though the ranks the last few years to become deputy director and acting director since James Comey was fired.

FBI officials and McCabe declined comment.

As TGP previously reported, Comey's replacement as Acting FBI Head, Andrew McCabe, has ties to the Hillary Clinton campaign.  Left-wing online publication, Newsweek, is reported:

concerns came after revelations by media outlets, including The Wall Street Journal, that a political action committee affiliated with Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, who has ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton, contributed almost $500,000 to the 2015 Virginia state Senate campaign of McCabe's wife, Jill McCabe. (She lost the election.) She also received $207,788 from the Virginia Democratic Party, which is connected to McAuliffe, a Democrat.

McCabe had it in for Flynn

Paul Mirengoff (PowerLine) says that we know that Barack Obama had it in for Gen. Michael Flynn. The former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency was a persistent critic of Obama's feckless policies, especially regarding ISIS. Obama reportedly advised president-elect Trump not to offer Flynn a high level position.

According to this report from Circa, the FBI's Andrew McCabe also had an ax to grind with Flynn. A few years ago, Robyn Gritz, a supervisory special agent, filed a discrimination/retaliation claim against the FBI. Flynn supported Gritz's claim. According to Circa, he wrote a letter of support in 2014 on his official Pentagon stationery, backed her in a 2015 public interview, and offered to testify on her behalf. (The FBI opposed allowing Flynn to testify. As I read Circa's story, it appears that he did not testify.)

McCabe was implicated in the retaliation part of the case. Circa says he admitted that the FBI opened an internal investigation into Gritz's personal conduct after learning that the agent had filed or intended to file a sex discrimination complaint against her supervisors. McCabe's involvement was such that he had to submit a sworn statement to investigators.

Such developments are hardly a feather in the cap of an FBI official trying to climb the ladder to the top. I doubt McCabe was amused.

In late 2016, McCabe was the number two man at the FBI. He emerged as a central player in the FBI's Russia election tampering investigation.

This put him in a position to get back at Flynn. Three FBI employees told Circa they personally witnessed McCabe make disparaging remarks about Flynn before and during the time the retired Army general became a figure in the Russia case. They say that McCabe's disparaging remarks made them uncomfortable as the Russia probe unfolded and pressure built to investigate Flynn. One employee says he even consulted a private lawyer.

If Circa's reporting is accurate, it seems clear that McCabe should have recused himself from any aspect of the probe pertaining to Flynn. Instead, according to Circa's sources, he drove the probe in all of its aspects.

I don't mean to say that Flynn shouldn't be investigated or that the investigation itself has been unfair. I have no knowledge one way or the other that bears on these questions. (The well-publicized, see below, phone conversation with the Russian ambassador doesn't warrant an investigation because there wasn't anything improper about it).

However, we all know that Flynn has been the victim of improper leaking. Circa reports:

FBI agents' concerns became more pronounced when a highly-classified piece of evidence -- an intercepted conversation between Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak -- suddenly leaked to the news media and prompted Flynn's resignation as Trump's top security adviser.

"The Flynn leaks were nothing short of political," one FBI employee said, noting the specific contents of the conversation were known by only a handful of government officials when they leaked. "The leaks appeared to be targeted to take Flynn out."

Who within the FBI had a personal reason for wanting to take Flynn out? The answer, it appears, is Andrew McCabe.

What about James Comey? He says that when President Trump asked him if he might go easy on Gen. Flynn, a "good guy," Comey responded, "I agree, he is a good guy."

Did Comey really say this? If so, was he just deflecting Trump's request or did he believe what he said?

At this point, who knows? It seems likely, though, that McCabe, not Comey, was Flynn's enemy at the FBI.

"Good guy" or not, the FBI's leaking of adverse information about Flynn was unconscionable. If McCabe is responsible for it, he should be held accountable.

FBI won’t confirm or deny existence of records of payment to British Trump dossier researcher

pic159.jpg

Jack Heretik (FreeBeacon) is reporting that the FBI will not confirm or deny the existence of records showing whether the bureau paid the researcher behind the unverified, controversial dossier alleging ties between President Donald Trump and Russia.

Christopher Steele, a former British spy, gathered information for the dossier while working for a Washington research firm that supporters of Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign hired. Trump has denied that the dossier is true while Steele has said parts of it are unverified.

The Washington Post reported earlier this year that Steele had reached an agreement with the FBI a few weeks before Election Day in November to continue investigating then-candidate Trump.

Cause of Action Institute (CoA), a nonprofit watchdog group, wanted to know whether Steele was ever paid by the FBI to probe Trump.

In March of this year, CoA filed a Freedom of Information Act request to the FBI seeking access to records to determine whether the FBI paid, or intended to pay, Steele. CoA filed a lawsuit in federal court the following month against the FBI for not responding to the request.

The FBI replied to CoA last week in a letter, writing that the agency cannot speak to the potential existence of such records.

"The FBI can neither confirm nor deny the existence of records responsive to your request," the letter, signed by an official in the bureau's Records Management Division, said.

The FBI argued that it cannot acknowledge the existence of or give access to potential records concerning financial transactions with Steele because the FOIA request "implicates records the FBI may or may not compile pursuant to its national security and foreign intelligence functions." The bureau provided other reasons for its decision not to disclose information, including concerns over privacy and interfering in ongoing federal investigations.

Cause of Action Institute president and CEO John Vecchione released a statement castigating the FBI's response.

"The FBI is circling the wagons by claiming potential harm to national security if it discloses its relationship with Christopher Steele," Vecchione said. "Regardless of whether a payment was ever made, the FBI's affiliation with a political opposition researcher in the midst of a presidential election deserves scrutiny."

"The FBI should be forthcoming about whether and how the agency was relying upon a former foreign spy who, in the pay of private parties, compiled a report of salacious accusations intended to harm the reputation of then-candidate Donald Trump," Vecchione added.

Not so Special Counsel -- it's time for POTUS to fight fire with fire

pic138.jpg

Karen McQuillan (DirectorBlue) is reporting that John Eastman, law professor at Chapman University, writes in American Greatness this week that the powers invested in Special Counsel Mueller to investigate "Russian hacking/collusion/obstruction poses grave dangers to our body politic and our liberty."  His advice to President Trump: Fight fire with fire.  Turn the law and the courts back on your opponents.  Trump is being investigated without any probable cause of a crime.  The Obama administration, in contrast, is a target-rich arena of criminal activity.

It is unconstitutional to issue a search warrant when there has been no crime and there is no probable cause, but that is exactly what President Trump's DoJ has inflicted on the president and his team with Mueller's special investigation.  It was not just cowardice, but folly for the DoJ to buckle to the left-wing media's hysterical insistence to investigate our president's alleged collusion with the FSB.

According to Professor Eastman:

The special counsel will not track down the details of a crime known to have been committed and determine "who dunnit," but will scour the personal and business affairs of a select group of people -- the President of the United States, members of his family, his business associates, and members of his presidential campaign and transition teams -- to see if any crime can be found (or worse, manufactured by luring someone into making a conflicting statement at some point). This is not a proper use of prosecutorial power, but a "witch hunt," as President Trump himself correctly observed. Or, to put it more in terms of legalese, this special prosecutor has effectively been given a "writ of assistance" and the power to exercise a "general warrant" against this select group of people, including the President of the United States, recently elected by a fairly wide margin of the electoral vote.

That is the very kind of thing our Fourth Amendment was adopted to prevent. Indeed, the issuance of general warrants and writs of assistance is quite arguably the spark that ignited America's war for independence.

Professor Eastman suggests fighting fire with fire, prosecution with prosecution.

Unfortunately, the only antidote may be to fight fire with fire. President Trump: Perhaps it is time to make good on that old pledge to appoint a special prosecutor to look into the Clinton "matters" after all. And while you're add it, add in referrals to the grand jury for the contempt of Congress committed by the IRS's Lois Lerner and former Attorney General Eric Holder, an FBI investigation of the destruction of government documents and servers in the midst of the IRS scandal, an investigation into alleged perjury committed by IRS Commissioner John Koskinen in testimony about those matters given under oath to Congress, an "obstruction of justice" investigation against former Attorney General Eric Holder and others (and related perjury charges against Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez) for allegedly ordering that an egregious voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party be dropped shortly before a default judgment was about to be entered in the government's favor, etc., etc., etc.

Barack Obama and his leftist minions spat on our constitution  and flouted the rule of law for eight long years.  Google "Obama flouts constitution," or see here and here and here and here and here.  Their abuse of power was ignored by the media and our partisan courts, but it has not been forgotten by conservatives. 

President Trump's voters would like to see equality before the law upheld once again in America.  It is bad for our country that rich and powerful Democrat politicians and bureaucrats harm our national security and ruin other people's lives, in flagrant violation of the law, and are never held to account for their crimes.  

Professor Eastman's advice to fight fire with fire stops short.  Based on his own analysis, it is unconstitutional to do warrantless searches with no probable cause.  Ending the baseless "Russian collusion" witch hunt is fundamental to upholding our constitution. 

Those who counseled President Trump to not prosecute Hillary Clinton said a Clinton investigation would distract the White House from furthering Trump's positive agenda.  That was a strong argument -- then -- but as Professor Eastman points out, it backfired.  Perhaps Trump's civility was taken as a sign of weakness.  Hillary launched the lie that the Russians made her lose the election.  Democrats instigated this phony Russian collusion investigation of Trump, precisely in an effort to distract the White House and halt the Trump agenda.  The best defense is to return to offense.

President Trump has the responsibility to re-establish the rule of law in our country, and he will have the enthusiastic backing of his base if he does so.  It is time to end Democrats' politically motivated abuse of the law.  Stop the Mueller investigation, and go after Obama Inc.'s multiple crimes.

Judiciary Committee sends "letter of inquiry" to former Attorney General Loretta Lynch

pic130.jpg

Sundance (ConsrvativeTreehouse) is reporting that the leaders of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Chairman Chuck Grassley and ranking member Dianne Feinstein, have officially launched an investigation into former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.  Their inquiry surrounds Lynch assuring the Hillary Clinton campaign that the FBI probe into Clinton's emails wouldn't go too far.

pic129.jpg

(Via Politico) The Judiciary panel announced Friday it had sent letters to Lynch and other officials -- the opening bid in what Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said last week would be separate investigations into the firing of former FBI Director James Comey and whether the Obama administration attempted to influence FBI investigations. (more)

It's about time!

pic108.jpg

Paul Sperry (NYPost) says Democrats have opened up a legal can of worms for the Obama administration by using fired FBI Director James Comey to attack the new Republican administration,

Under sworn questioning, Comey has veered off the topic of President Trump and Russia and revealed several damning incidents in which his predecessor's administration politically interfered in the Hillary Clinton email investigation. And now the Senate will investigate Team Obama for obstruction of justice.

Specifically, the Senate Judiciary Committee announced last week it will hold hearings to "examine then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch's involvement in the Clinton email server investigation."

The findings of the powerful panel, which has oversight of the Justice Department and FBI, could lead to a separate criminal investigation and the naming of another special counsel — exactly what Trump needs to distract attention from his growing legal woes.

What Lynch did reeks of obstruction. According to Comey, his ex-boss:

  •  Ordered him to mislead the public about the criminal investigation of Clinton by calling it a "matter" rather than an investigation. (He complied with her wish, even though it made him feel "queasy.")
  •  Refused to recuse herself from the case after Comey confronted her about a secret June 2016 meeting she had with former President Bill Clinton — five days before his wife was scheduled to be interviewed by the FBI. (Hillary was cleared three days later.)

There are also concerns, raised by a New York Times report, that Lynch privately assured the Clinton campaign she would keep FBI agents in check and wouldn't let their investigation "go too far," according to a message the FBI intercepted involving then-Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

Worried his boss had a "conflict of interest" overseeing the Clinton investigation, Comey testified he "considered whether I should call for the appointment of a special counsel" to take over the case. That would've been the right move. Curiously, Comey instead shut down the probe and let Clinton off the hook — three weeks before her presidential nomination.

How compliant was Comey? Here's how he responded to Lynch's demand he "align" his rhetoric with the Clinton camp: "I just said, OK." What other Lynch meddling did he go along with during the yearlong Hillary probe, which was marred by suspiciously generous immunity deals, favorable ground rules, a near-absence of grand jury subpoenas and a rushed closure ahead of the DNC convention?

These are questions the Senate judiciary panel, chaired by GOP Sen. Chuck Grassley, might like to ask Comey, along with: Who else was in the room during your meetings with Lynch, and did you take notes?

Any notes could be subpoenaed, along with the Wasserman Schultz document, which, contrary to recent media reports, isn't fake. (Comey testified such reports are "nonsense.") So might the NSA recording of Lynch's chat with Clinton, which took place on board a government plane.

Congressional sources say Lynch will almost certainly be called to answer Comey's allegations under oath. What did she and Bill Clinton discuss? Did the investigation come up? Why didn't she recuse herself, despite admitting it looked bad? And did she in fact promise the Clinton campaign a whitewash?

Also on the potential witness list are Wasserman Schultz and Amanda Renteria, the senior Clinton campaign staffer with whom Wasserman Schultz claimed Lynch had been in communication.

Democrats will have a hard time dismissing the inquiry as partisan. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary panel, is on record saying Lynch's suspicious actions are a legitimate avenue of inquiry. Those remarks provide Republicans the political cover they need to aggressively pursue Comey's leads, and refer evidence to the Justice Department for criminal prosecution.

Because Attorney General Jeff Sessions would recuse himself from that probe, too, the case could end up in the hands of a special prosecutor, who, like Robert Mueller, would have wide-ranging authority to poke around.

That's a nightmare scenario for Democrats, who are betting the 2018 midterms on convincing voters of Trump graft. Much to their chagrin, Comey's testimony has given Republicans grounds to shift focus from the Russia probe back to Clinton-Obama corruption.

Witch-hunting Democrats may soon learn that turnabout is fair play.

Republicans are calling for a "special counsel" to investigate Loretta Lynch

Truth Feed News is reporting that it's long overdue for an investigation into the crooked Loretta Lynch to take place.

pic76.jpg

Let's hope it happens sooner rather than later.

From Zerohedge

Last night, after Trump launched yet another furious tweetstorm intended to expose the double standard applied in the Hillary investigation compared to the Russia probe, we noted that Republicans might be well served to stop sitting around twiddling their thumbs and actually go on the offensive against an investigation that has obviously morphed into mass hysteria courtesy of free-flowing leaks from a conflicted "intelligence community" intent upon bringing down a presidency.  Here's what we said:

Of course, until someone within the Trump administration or Republican Party smartens up and calls for the appointment of a ‘Special Counsel' to look into Hillary's email scandal, something that should have been done long ago, and not for retaliatory reasons but simply due to Comey's and AG Lynch's blatant mishandling of the investigation (a point which Deputy AG Rosenstein obviously agreed with), the Democrats have no reason to calm their mass hysteria.  Then, and only then, do we suspect that Hillary might just be able to ‘convince' her party to exercise some form of reasonable judgement.

Now, according to a note this morning from The Hill, Republicans seem to be doing just that with several members of the GOP calling on the Special Counsel to look into whether former Attorney General Loretta Lynch illegally meddled in the Hillary investigation when she met with Bill Clinton on the tarmac in Phoenix and/or instructed Comey to refer to his case as a "matter" rather than an "investigation."

Rather than wasting resources on investigating Trump, the GOP says the special counsel must look into whether former attorney general Loretta Lynch meddled with the FBI's criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton's email server. Comey testified that Lynch told him to downplay the seriousness of the FBI's email server investigation.

For those who missed it, here is Comey's testimony in which he confirms that Lynch "directed" him to refer to the Hillary email case as a "matter" rather than an "investigation."

And let's not forget that ill-advised meeting with Bill Clinton on the Phoenix tarmac just days before the Justice Department was set to announce the results of their investigation.

The 7 times the Obama administration obstructed justice

pic63.jpg

Kimberly Morin (ThefederalistPapers) says The Left is continually screaming that Donald Trump somehow obstructed justice when it comes to the Russia investigations. Of course, they never actually prove that he's obstructed justice, but they continue to yell about it anyway.

What's truly ironic is that the Left ignored the actual obstruction of justice that Barack Obama participated in during his failed reign in the White House. For some reason, Obama obstructing justice is quite alright with them.

Gosh, I wonder why?

From The Daily Wire:

The George Zimmerman Prosecution. While the Attorney General was investigating the Zimmerman shooting of Trayvon Martin, President Obama stated, "I'm the head of the executive branch, and the attorney general reports to me, so I've got to be careful about my statements to make sure that we're not impairing any investigation that's taking place right now." But then Obama went on to impair that investigation: "When I think about this boy, I think about my own kids. And I think every parent in America should be able to understand why it is absolutely imperative that we investigate every aspect of this…If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon." The DOJ promptly deployed its Community Relations Service to Sanford, Florida, to expend thousands of taxpayer dollars facilitating marches, demonstrations, and rallies. The DOJ would go on to set up a tip line for people to call in with stories of Zimmerman's racism, and Obama would later suggest that Zimmerman was a racist. He concluded, "if a white male teen was involved in the same kind of scenario…from top to bottom, both the outcome and the aftermath might have been different."

Protecting The New Black Panthers. When the New Black Panthers wielded billy clubs outside of a voting place in Philadelphia, the DOJ stopped any investigation. As J. Christian Adams, then a Justice Department lawyer, wrote, "I believe the dismissal of the Black Panther case was motivated by a lawless hostility toward equal enforcement of the law." NBPP head Malik Shabazz later admitted that the Obama administration "owed us…favors" because of their help in the election.

The Firing Of AmeriCorps Inspector General Gerald Walpin. On June 12, 2009, Obama fired Walpin. Walpin had been appointed by President Bush in 2007, and stepped on the toes of one of Obama's friends, Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson. In April 2008, Walpin took charge of an investigation into allegations that a California nonprofit headed by Johnson had received a grant of $850,000, which was diverted for nefarious purposes, and that AmeriCorps staff had been used to recruit for Johnson's charity. Walpin recommended suspension of Johnson from AmeriCorps. Walpin refused to lift the suspension. So the US attorney's office, led by Lawrence Brown, decided to go around Walpin and lift the suspension after allowing Johnson to pay a fine. Walpin wrote a report to congress. Less than two months later, Norman Eisen, special counsel to the president for ethics and government reform, allegedly called Walpin and told him, "The president wants me to tell you that he really appreciates your service, but it's time to move on." The Wall Street Journal reported, "the evidence suggests that [Obama's] White House fired a public official who refused to roll over to protect a Presidential crony." An investigation from Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA) and Representative Darrell Issa (R-CA) found that Walpin had uncovered alleged sexual misconduct by Johnson.

Obama's Interference In Navy Court-Martials. Obama said he wanted alleged victims of sexual assault in the military to be "prosecuted, stripped of their positions, court-martialed, fired, dishonorably discharged." The problem: Obama is head of the military courts. In June 2013, Navy Judge Commander Marcus Fulton issued a ruling suggesting that Obama's language could lead to the exculpation of sexual offenders, since "A member of the public would not hear the President's statement to be a simple admonition to hold members accountable."

Fast and Furious. Just last week, the House Oversight Committee released a 300 page report with a brutal take-down of Eric Holder. The report states, "More than five years after Brian's murder, the Terry family still wonders about key details of Operation Fast and Furious. The Justice Department's obstruction of Congress's investigation contributed to the Terry family's inability to find answers." Holder said he didn't know anything about Fast and Furious before Brian Terry's killing. But the report says that the Justice Department knew full well about the program. Holder ended up being held in contempt of Congress.

Hillary's Obstruction. According to Andrew McCarthy, Hillary Clinton "attempted to destroy about 30 emails related to the 2012 Benghazi massacre…. Obviously, these emails were kept from the congressional committees that investigated the Benghazi massacre." This violates another obstruction provision governing the destruction of government documents pertinent to an investigation. The Obama administration, McCarthy points out, knew about the missing documents for months. Obama himself said of Hillary, "She would never intentionally put America in any kind of jeopardy." And his attorney general, according to former FBI director James Comey, pressured him to downplay the Hillary investigation.

The Michael Brown Case. Just as with the Zimmerman case, Obama sounded off early and often on the Brown case, and deployed federal resources in an effort to smear Officer Darren Wilson. After Brown's death, amid riots in Ferguson, Missouri, Obama stated, "The death of Michael Brown is heartbreaking, and Michelle and I send our deepest condolences to his family and his community at this very difficult time. As Attorney General Holder has indicated the Department of Justice is investigating the situation along with the local officials, and they will continue to direct resources to the case as needed." Before the grand jury verdict on Darren Wilson was released, Obama said, "the African American community is not just making this up."

These are just a few times Obama could be accused of obstruction of justice. Yet the left ignores all of these (there's more at The Daily Wire) and continues to claim Trump somehow obstructed justice even with no proof.

The hypocrisy from the Left in Trump's very short tenure is the loudest and biggest elephant in the room. Yet you hear crickets from the media.

The media ignored Obama's horrific behavior for eight years, yet they now try to play up the Left's accusations against Trump.

Just another day in the U.S. where the media has become nothing but propaganda pimps for Democrats.

AG Lynch obstructed justice in the Hillary investigation

Fired FBI Director, James Comey had a SECOND meeting with former Attorney General Loretta Lynch where he confronted her about her election interference.

According to the report, when confronted, Loretta Lynch stared at Comey with a ‘steely silence that lasted for some time’ before she asked him to leave her office.

Circa News with exclusive scoop:

Ex-FBI Director James Comey has privately told members of Congress that he had a frosty exchange with Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch last year when he confronted her about possible political interference in the Hillary Clinton email investigation after showing Lynch a sensitive document she was unaware the FBI possessed, according to sources who were directly briefed on the matter.

In multiple private sessions over the last few months, Comey has told lawmakers about a second, later confrontation with Lynch shortly before the email probe was shut down.

Comey told lawmakers in the close door session that he raised his concern with the attorney general that she had created a conflict of interest by meeting with Clinton's husband, the former President Bill Clinton, on an airport tarmac while the investigation was ongoing.

During the conversation, Comey told lawmakers he confronted Lynch with a highly sensitive piece of evidence, a communication between two political figures that suggested Lynch had agreed to put the kibosh on any prosecution of Clinton.

Comey said "the attorney general looked at the document then looked up with a steely silence that lasted for some time, then asked him if he had any other business with her and if not that he should leave her office," said one source who was briefed.

As TGP previously reported, in an explosive revelation, former FBI Director James Comey has admitted that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch attempted to suppress/reframe the investigation into former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's illegal private email server. AG Lynch purportedly directed Comey to immediately stop referring to the Hillary probe as an "investigation" or a "probe" and, instead, refer to it as a much more gentle "matter".

TGP also reported that ultra liberal Dem Senator Dianne Feinstein is even calling for an investigation into whether or not Loretta Lynch tried to help Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election:

Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.) said Sunday that Congress should investigate whether former Attorney General Loretta Lynch pressured former FBI Director James Comey to cover for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

"I think we need to know more about that," Feinstein told host Brianna Keilar on CNN's "State of the Union."

"And there's only way to know about it, and that's to have the Judiciary Committee take a look at that," Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said.

Color me surprised!

Former AG Mukasey says the egregious Loretta Lynch directive to Comey made DoJ an arm of the Hillary campaign

Newsmax TV is reporting that former US Attorney General Michael Mukasey went on with Steve Malzberg show on Friday after Comey’s Thursday testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Michael Mukasey: What makes it egregious is the fact, and I think it’s obvious that it is a fact, that the Attorney General of the United States was adjusting the way the department talked about its business so as to coincide as to the way the Clinton Campaign talked about that business. In other words it made the Department of Justice essentially an arm of the Clinton Campaign. That is really a betrayal of the department and its independence. Clearly the Attorney General was clearly in the tank for Secretary Hillary Clinton.

Rep Gohmert says Comey "appears" to be "confessing to a crime"

Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) spoke to Melissa Francis on the Fox Business Network regarding former FBI Director Comey. They discussed the recent move by President Trump to fire him; and, in reaction to the current news surrounding Comey, he noted, "I'm amazed that an FBI Director/ former prosecutor would be confessing to a crime, the way it appears that he is."

The 7 most heinous crimes of the Obama DoJ

pic692.jpg

Doug Ross (DirectorBlue) says that writing at National Review, former federal prosecutor Andy McCarthy outlines the machinations of the U.S. attorney's office for the Southern District of New York (SDNY) against alleged insider trading. Led by the controversial Preet Bharara -- since fired by President Trump -- the office has been pilloried in the media for its tactics.

As McCarthy notes, there is general concern that "improper and abusive behavior by prosecutors has reached 'epidemic proportions'."

However, that's not the worst of it.

McCarthy lists seven high crimes and misdemeanors of the Obama DoJ that are worth remembering.

• Eric Holder was the first attorney general in history to be held in contempt of Congress, when he stonewalled committee probes of the Fast and Furious investigation. Fast and Furious itself was a scandal, involving the government's reckless abuse of investigative powers for the purpose of fabricating an anti-gun narrative. Instead, its "gun walking" resulted in the killing of a federal agent, among other violent crimes.

• Attorney General Holder made misleading representations about both Fast and Furious and the investigation of Fox News journalist James Rosen.

• The IRS's intimidation and abuse of President Obama's political opponents, and the cover-up thereof, resulted in no charges and little apparent investigation.

• There were politicized prosecutions against Dinesh D'Souza (an Obama critic whose minor campaign-finance infraction was treated as a major felony when more-serious violations are typically disposed of by administrative fine), and Nakoula Basseley Nakoula (the anti-Muslim video producer scapegoated by the Obama administration for the Benghazi massacre).

• Recall the misrepresentations by Justice Department lawyers to a federal court in the litigation over Obama's lawless immigration non-enforcement programs (DACA and DAPA) -- lies the judge found to be "intentional, serious and material."

• Then there were the Justice Department's outrageous misconduct and serial lies in a prosecution of New Orleans police, which a federal judge variously described as "bizarre," "appalling," and "grotesque" -- conclusions upheld by the Fifth Circuit appeals court.

• And, of course, the Clinton e-mails investigation, featuring: Justice Department collusion with Clinton-camp lawyers; inexplicable immunity deals; suspects who received immunity permitted to appear as lawyers for other suspects; no prosecutions despite significant evidence, several immunity grants, and patently misleading statements during FBI interviews; a furtive tarmac tête-à-tête between the attorney general and the main suspect's husband (the former U.S. president who just happened to have launched the attorney general into public prominence, and who was positioned to influence whether the attorney general got to keep her job in an anticipated Hillary Clinton administration) just days before it was announced -- surprise! -- that there would be no indictment of Hillary Clinton; and startling public commentary by the FBI regarding an uncharged case that bore heavily on a presidential election.

I could go on, but you get the point. So . . . what is to be done?

The rule of law demands prosecution of these crimes.

I understand that there's a Banana Republic aspect to one administration going after its predecessor.

But at what point do the crimes of an utterly lawless and politicized Executive Branch demand legal scrutiny?

Brian Terry, a federal officer, is dead because of Operation Fast and Furious.

No one in the administration has ever been held accountable. And that is simply wrong. And it is the sign of a broken system.

To put things right, Eric Holder and the Obama DoJ must be prosecuted.
