( Daily Caller ) The Department of Justice will allow Congress to review highly classified requested documents relating to the FBI’s investigation into the Trump 2016 campaign in conjunction with the White House and other agencies, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday.

“Based on the meeting with the President, the Department of Justice has asked the Inspector General to expand its current investigation to include any irregularities with the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s or the Department of Justice’s tactics concerning the Trump Campaign,” Sanders said.

“It was also agreed that White House Chief of Staff Kelly will immediately set up a meeting with the FBI, DOJ, and DNI together with Congressional Leaders to review highly classified and other information they have requested,” she continued.

President Donald Trump met with Director of National Intelligence Dan Coates, FBI Director Wray, and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein Monday afternoon to discuss congressional requests. Conservative lawmakers have pressed the DOJ for weeks to turn over highly classified documents relating to the FBI’s 2016 investigation, particularly to discern abuse of power or the use of a confidential informant to infiltrate the campaign.

DEFIANT HILLARY TO DEMOCRATS: You’re Never Getting Rid Of Me

  • Hillary Clinton told the Democratic Women’s Leadership Forum that she’s going to be a foundational part of the anti-Trump “resistance,” whether the “resistance” wants her or not.

 

Daily Wire ByEmily Zanotti

 

On Friday, Hillary Clinton delivered her first official message to the Democratic National Convention since losing the Presidential election in 2016, and she had only one message for the gathered, mostly female, officials: you’re not getting rid of me that easy.

In what sounded more like a threat than an announcement, Clinton told the Democratic Women’s Leadership Forum that she’s going to be a foundational part of the anti-Trump “resistance,” whether the “resistance” wants her or not.

She also gave some advice to the gathered crowd, many of whom are competing in the midterm Congressional elections: focus on issues important to Americans, like abortion and “facts.”

Sad Hillary to receive prestigious Harvard medal for ‘transformative impact on society’…You now happy :)

Posted on

 

By – Associated Press – Sunday, May 20, 2018

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Hillary Clinton is being honored with a medal during Harvard University’s graduation week.

The former First Lady, U.S. Senator, Secretary of State and Democratic candidate for president will be awarded Friday in Cambridge with the Radcliffe Medal, which the university says honors individuals whose life and work have had a “transformative impact on society.”

Organizers say Clinton was chosen because she’s a “champion for human rights,” a “skilled legislator” and “an advocate of American leadership” on the world stage.

Former Secretary of State and 2001 Radcliffe Medalist Madeleine Albright will deliver a personal tribute to Clinton and Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey will take part in a keynote conversation with her on Friday.

Previous medal recipients include Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and former U.S. Senator Elizabeth Dole.

 

DOJ to look into possible ‘impropriety’ after Trump demands probe on alleged campaign ‘infiltration’

DOJ to look into Trump's claims Obama WH may have directed campaign 'infiltration'

 

( Fox News ) The Justice Department asked its watchdog to look into any alleged “impropriety or political motivation” in the FBI’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election, the DOJ said Sunday night — hours after President Trump ordered a review looking into whether federal agents infiltrated or surveilled his campaign for political purposes.

“I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes — and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!” the president tweeted.

Sad Hillary Says She’s Still ‘Not Over’ Losing To Trump

Posted on

 

( Daily Caller ) Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told Yale University’s graduating class she’s “still not over” losing to President Donald Trump in the 2016 election.

It took Clinton less than two minutes to bring up the 2016 election during her commencement speech on Sunday. “I mean, if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em,” Clinton said, whipping out a Russian hat. The twice failed presidential candidate took repeated jabs at Trump while giving her commencement speech on Sunday, although she didn’t directly name him. (RELATED: Defiant Hillary To Dems: ‘I’m Not Going Anywhere’)

“I remember the first months after that 2016 election were not easy. We all had our own methods of coping,” Clinton said, noting she went for “long walks in the woods,” spent “hours going down a Twitter rabbit hole” and had her “fair share of chardonnay.”

“No, I’m not over it. I still think about the 2016 election. I still regret the mistakes I made. I still think, though, that understanding what happened in such a weird and wild election in American history will help us defend our democracy in the future,” she said.

Giuliani: Mueller To Finish Probing Possible Trump Obstruction By September 1

Posted on

  •  Rudy Giuliani : “You don’t want another repeat of the 2016 election where you get contrary reports at the end and you don’t know how it affected the election.”
 

President Donald Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani said on Sunday that Robert Mueller will conclude his investigation by September 1st into whether Trump obstructed the special counsel’s Russia probe.

“The office of the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, shared its timeline about two weeks ago amid negotiations over whether Mr. Trump will be questioned by investigators, Mr. Giuliani said in an interview. A spokesman for the special counsel’s office declined to comment,” the New York Times reports.

Giuliani welcomed Mueller’s decision to bring the special counsel’s obstruction probe to a close, saying, “You don’t want another repeat of the 2016 election where you get contrary reports at the end and you don’t know how it affected the election.”

A possible presidential interview is still on the table, says the former New York City mayor, who also said this week that the special counsel communicated that he will not indict President Trump.

TRUMP ORDERS DOJ TO INVESTIGATE SPYING ON HIS CAMPAIGN BY OBAMA ADMIN ==> Sunday Tweetstorm Blasts Witch Hunt, Criminal Podesta Brothers, Crooked Hillary

Posted on Updated on

 

 

Donald J. Trump

I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes – and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!

 

President Donald Trump Sunday Tweetstorm:

  • If the FBI or DOJ was infiltrating a campaign for the benefit of another campaign, that is a really big deal. Only the release or review of documents that the House Intelligence Committee (also, Senate Judiciary) is asking for can give the conclusive answers. Drain the Swamp!

 

  • Things are really getting ridiculous. The Failing and Crooked (but not as Crooked as Hillary Clinton) @nytimes has done a long & boring story indicating that the World’s most expensive Witch Hunt has found nothing on Russia & me so now they are looking at the rest of the World!

 

  • At what point does this soon to be $20,000,000 Witch Hunt, composed of 13 Angry and Heavily Conflicted Democrats and two people who have worked for Obama for 8 years, STOP! They have found no Collussion with Russia, No Obstruction, but they aren’t looking at the corruption in the Hillary Clinton Campaign where she deleted 33,000 Emails, got $145,000,000 while Secretary of State, paid McCabes wife $700,000 (and got off the FBI hook along with Terry M) and so much more. Republicans and real Americans should start getting tough on this Scam.

 

  • Now that the Witch Hunt has given up on Russia and is looking at the rest of the World, they should easily be able to take it into the Mid-Term Elections where they can put some hurt on the Republican Party. Don’t worry about Dems FISA Abuse, missing Emails or Fraudulent Dossier!

 

  • What ever happened to the Server, at the center of so much Corruption, that the Democratic National Committee REFUSED to hand over to the hard charging (except in the case of Democrats) FBI? They broke into homes & offices early in the morning, but were afraid to take the Server?

 

  • And why hasn’t the Podesta brother been charged and arrested, like others, after being forced to close down his very large and successful firm? Is it because he is a VERY well connected Democrat working in the Swamp of Washington, D.C.?

OBAMA’S INTEL DIRECTOR: It’s ‘A Good Thing’ FBI Was Spying On Trump Campaign

Posted on

 

( Daily Caller ) Former Director of Intelligence James Clapper said Thursday night on CNN that it was “a good thing” there was an FBI informant spying on the Trump campaign.

Clapper admitted the FBI “may have had someone who was talking to them in the campaign,” referring to President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. He explained away the possibility of an FBI informant spying on the campaign as the bureau was trying to find out “what the Russians were doing to try to substantiate themselves in the campaign or influence or leverage it.”

Obama’s Director of National Intelligence then went on to say, “So, if there was someone that was observing that sort of thing, that’s a good thing.”

He also stated he believes “it’s hugely dangerous if someone like that is exposed because the danger to that person” and the potential “reluctance of others to be informants for the FBI” could possibly devastate the FBI.

THEIR SPY! Cambridge Professor Stefan Halper Was The Spy On Trump Campaign Advisers

Posted on Updated on

George Papadopoulos (Left, via LinkedIn) and Carter Page (Right, via Reuters)

  • Cambridge University professor, Stefan Halper, contacted Trump advisers Carter Page, George Papadopoulos and Sam Clovis during the 2016 campaign

 

( Daily Caller ) A top-secret CIA and FBI source who spied on two Trump campaign advisers and initiated contact with a third was all but outed Friday night.

The New York Times and The Washington Post provided a detailed description of the source in articles published Friday night, but did not identify him by name, citing concerns about his physical safety.

But the reports match up exactly with a Cambridge University professor first described in a Daily Caller News Foundation report from March. That professor, Stefan Halper, contacted Trump advisers Carter Page, George Papadopoulos and Sam Clovis during the 2016 campaign. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: A London Meeting Aroused George Papadopoulos’s Suspicions)

 

 

President Donald Trump commented Friday on the existence of an informant, who he asserted was “implanted” on the campaign “for political purposes.”

“Reports are there was indeed at least one FBI representative implanted, for political purposes, into my campaign for president,” Trump tweeted on Friday. “It took place very early on, and long before the phony Russia Hoax became a ‘hot’ Fake News story. If true — all time biggest political scandal!”

STUPID NEW YORK TIMES HEADLINE: FBI SPY INSIDE TRUMP CAMPAIGN WAS NOT THERE TO SPY

Posted on Updated on

 

This is an actual headline from The New York Times:

The New York Times today admitted there was an Obama spy inside the Trump campaign but he was not there to spy.

What shameless liars.

President Trump accused the F.B.I. on Friday, without evidence, of sending a spy to secretly infiltrate his 2016 campaign “for political purposes” even before the bureau had any inkling of the “phony Russia hoax.”

In fact, F.B.I. agents sent an informant to talk to two campaign advisers only after they received evidence that the pair had suspicious contacts linked to Russia during the campaign. The informant, an American academic who teaches in Britain, made contact late that summer with one campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, according to people familiar with the matter. He also met repeatedly in the ensuing months with the other aide, Carter Page, who was also under F.B.I. scrutiny for his ties to Russia.

The role of the informant is at the heart of the newest battle between top law enforcement officials and Mr. Trump’s congressional allies over the F.B.I.’s most politically charged investigations in decades. The lawmakers, who say they are concerned that federal investigators are abusing their authority, have demanded documents from the Justice Department about the informant.

Law enforcement officials have refused, saying that handing over the documents would imperil both the source’s anonymity and safety. The New York Times has learned the source’s identity but typically does not name informants to preserve their safety.

This is right up there with the Washington Post today…

RUSH: I Know the Name of the Spy the FBI Put in the Trump Campaign

Posted on

 

  • George Papadopoulos was entrapped by three people, including the person who is reputed to be the spy
  • A FISA warrant, as you know, was secured to spy on Carter Page because of the Steele dossier. But nothing came of Mr. Page. They dropped Carter Page entirely.
  • Using the media, when the Steele dossier was exposed as a fraud, when it was exposed as an opposition research document, the intelligence people, the FBI, DOJ, went into stage 2, came up with a new reason, ostensibly to trigger the investigation. Turns out it wasn’t Carter Page. It was George Papadopoulos

 

RUSH: I now know who the spy is. I know now know who the FBI was running in the Trump campaign. I don’t think I’m gonna give you the name of the spy, but I’m gonna tell you everything the spy has done. It is the most amazing story. It is a story of entrapment. When you hear this, it’s gonna infuriate you. You’re gonna realize how utterly phony this entire investigation of Donald Trump is. It’s phonier than you even realize now.

And there is a CliffsNotes version of this, and there is the intricate detailed version of this. I’m gonna give you the CliffsNotes version when we get into this. The name of the spy, you may not know it, it’s not somebody when you hear the name, “Oh, that person.” It’s not that kind of person. Even to call the person a spy is a little bit of a stretch. It’s more like an operative employed by the FBI to basically entrap somebody who worked with the Trump campaign in a peripheral way, and it worked like a charm.

And it all involved the name George Papadopoulos. Does the name George Papadopoulos ring a bell? George Papadopoulos is the so-called second reason the Mueller investigation or the FBI investigation into Trump colluding with Russia began. The first reason we were given was Carter Page. A FISA warrant, as you know, was secured to spy on Carter Page because of the Steele dossier. But nothing came of Mr. Page.

The New York Times over the New Year’s weekend, 2017-2018, wrote a story saying that actually it was something else that triggered everything, and that was George Papadopoulos. They dropped Carter Page entirely and, using the media, when the Steele dossier was exposed as a fraud, when it was exposed as an opposition research document, the intelligence people, the FBI, DOJ, went into stage 2, came up with a new reason, ostensibly to trigger the investigation.

Turns out it wasn’t Carter Page. It was George Papadopoulos. And do you remember what they said Papadopoulos did? Papadopoulos got drunk one night at a bar in London and started talking to somebody that just happened to be an ambassador from Australia. And Papadopoulos told this guy that the Russians had thousands of Hillary Clinton emails. The New York Times weekend story, New Year’s weekend in 2017-2018 stressed that that is what actually triggered the investigation.

Well, Papadopoulos was entrapped by three people, including the person who is reputed to be the spy. And very simply here’s the CliffsNotes version of what happened. George Papadopoulos, 24-year-old peripheral member of the Trump foreign policy campaign team. He was a nothing. He was a nobody, which made him a perfect mark. He was a young guy who wanted to go places.

Sex Discrimination Victim Owed Money By Michael Avenatti’s Company Yet To Receive A Cent

Posted on

( Daily Caller ) Two companies controlled by Michael Avenatti have yet to pay the over $126,000 owed to a victim of sex discrimination case despite orders from a Washington state court, the victim’s lawyer told The Daily Caller News Foundation. 

Elizabeth Eno, a top-performing manager at Tully’s Coffee chain, was fired in July 2016 because she was pregnant, the court ruled last year, awarding her $120,000 from Tully’s two parent companies at the time: Global Baristas LLC and Global Baristas US, LLC.

But Eno has yet to see a single cent from the award, her attorney told TheDCNF on Thursday.

State records show that Global Baristas US, LLC is controlled by the similarly named Global Baristas LLC, which in turn is controlled by Avenatti, the lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: ‘Utter Bulls***’ — Avenatti Denies ‘Political Interests’ Are Paying Him)

Avenatti claimed to know nothing about the money his companies apparently owe Eno. “I have no idea. I had nothing to do with the case,” Avenatti told TheDCNF on Thursday.

A judge ruled a summary order against the two companies in October 2017 to pay Eno $120,585 for wage losses, expectation damages, and pain and suffering related to her wrongful termination. Avenatti’s companies didn’t even send an attorney to court.

IG Horowitz Finds FBI, DOJ Broke Law In Clinton Probe, Refers To Prosecutor For Criminal Charges

 

As we reported earlier Thursday, a long-awaited report by the Department of Justice’s internal watchdog into the Hillary Clinton email investigation has moved into its final phase, as the DOJ notified multiple subjects mentioned in the document that they can privately review it by week’s end, and will have a “few days” to craft any response to criticism contained within the report, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Those invited to review the report were told they would have to sign nondisclosure agreements in order to read it, people familiar with the matter said. They are expected to have a few days to craft a response to any criticism in the report, which will then be incorporated in the final version to be released in coming weeks. –WSJ

US manufacturers hiring more, paying more, thanks to tax reform: survey

Posted on

U.S. manufacturers are hiring more workers, boosting wages and increasing domestic investments following the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

Seventy-two percent of manufacturers are ramping up workers’ wages and benefits, according to a new survey from the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM). Meanwhile, 77% of survey respondents said they were hiring more workers, while 86% are investing more in plants and equipment.

“Manufacturing in America is now rising to new heights, thanks to tax reform, and as a result, manufacturers of all sizes are already investing more, growing more, hiring more and paying more. They are already improving lives and livelihoods,” NAM Board Chair David Farr said in a statement.

Meanwhile, optimism among manufacturers remains near all-time highs. More than 93% of manufacturers have a positive outlook on their company’s prospects in the U.S. economy – the second-highest level ever recorded by the National Association of Manufacturers –  its most recent quarterly survey revealed.

NYT Admits Still No Evidence of Trump Collusion With Russia – buries in paragraph 70 of the story

Posted on

( The Federalist ) In paragraph 69 of the lengthy story, The New York Times takes itself to task for burying the lede in its October 31, 2016, story about the FBI not finding any proof of involvement with Russian election meddling.

The key fact of the article — that the F.B.I. had opened a broad investigation into possible links between the Russian government and the Trump campaign — was published in the 10th paragraph.

It is somewhat funny, then, to read what The New York Times buries in paragraph 70 of the story:

A year and a half later, no public evidence has surfaced connecting Mr. Trump’s advisers to the hacking or linking Mr. Trump himself to the Russian government’s disruptive efforts.

No evidence of collusion after two years of investigation with unlimited resources? You don’t say! What could that mean?

NYT: OBAMA ACTIVELY SPIED ON TRUMP – DOWNPLAYED THE STORY

Posted on

 

10 Key Takeaways From The New York Times’ Error-Ridden Defense Of FBI Spying On Trump Campaign

 

  • The F.B.I. investigated four unidentified Trump campaign aides in those early months, congressional investigators revealed in February. The four men were Michael T. Flynn, Paul Manafort, Carter Page and Mr. Papadopoulos, current and former officials said
  • FBI was worried that if it came out they were spying on Trump campaign it would “only reinforce his claims that the election was being rigged against him.”

 

The Federalist By 17, 2018

 

  1. FBI Officials Admit They Spied On Trump Campaign

The New York Times‘ story, headlined “Code Name Crossfire Hurricane: The Secret Origins of the Trump Investigation,” is a dry and gentle account of the FBI’s launch of extensive surveillance of affiliates of the Trump campaign. Whereas FBI officials and media enablers had previously downplayed claims that the Trump campaign had been surveiled, in this story we learn that it was more widespread than previously acknowledged:

The F.B.I. investigated four unidentified Trump campaign aides in those early months, congressional investigators revealed in February. The four men were Michael T. Flynn, Paul Manafort, Carter Page and Mr. Papadopoulos, current and former officials said…

The F.B.I. obtained phone records and other documents using national security letters — a secret type of subpoena — officials said. And at least one government informant met several times with Mr. Page and Mr. Papadopoulos, current and former officials said.

This is a stunning admission for those Americans worried that federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies might use their powers to surveil, leak against, and target Americans simply for their political views or affiliations. As Sean Davis wrote, “The most amazing aspect about this article is how blasé it is about the fact that the Obama admin was actively spying on four affiliates of a rival political campaign weeks before an election.”

The story says the FBI was worried that if it came out they were spying on Trump campaign it would “only reinforce his claims that the election was being rigged against him.” It is easy to understand how learning that the FBI was spying on one’s presidential campaign might reinforce claims of election-rigging.

No Trump Indictment! Mueller told Trump’s legal team he will not indict the president, Giuliani tells Fox News

Posted on

 

( Fox News ) President Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, told Fox News on Wednesday that special counsel Robert Mueller has told the president’s legal team he will follow Justice Department guidance and not seek an indictment against Trump.

“This case is essentially over,” Giuliani said. “They’re just in denial.”

Giuliani, himself a former federal prosecutor and mayor of New York City, also told Fox News that Mueller’s investigators have not responded to five information requests from the president’s team. That has forced Trump’s legal team to push off making a decision about whether the president will sit for an interview with the special counsel — a decision they had hoped to reach by Thursday.

“We’ve had no response from them,” Giuliani told Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle” about his interactions with Mueller’s team. “We’re asking … what do they really need to know, what kind of assurances do we have that they’ll get it over with quickly, just like they did for [Hillary] Clinton.”

The precedent that federal prosecutors cannot indict a sitting president is laid out in a 1999 Justice Department memo. Giuliani told Fox News that Mueller has no choice but to follow its guidance.

Giuliani joined Trump’s legal team last month and has repeatedly warned that an in-person interview of the president by the special counsel’s team would constitute a “perjury trap.” Complicating matters, Trump himself has refused to rule out agreeing to an interview with Mueller.

Fusion GPS’ Glenn Simpson Dined With Russian Lawyer Before & After Her Meeting with Trump Jr. at Trump Tower

Simpson had business dealings with Veselnitskaya, and that included a court hearing in New York on June 9, 2016.  But Simpson said he did not know about the June 9, 2016 meeting at Trump Tower. He said the subject never came up at either of the dinners he had with Veselnitskaya on June 8 or 10, 2016; and he was “stunned” to learn about it later in The New York Times.

Veselnitskaya, however, told the committee that “no,” she did not have contact with Glenn Simpson on June 8, 9, or 10, 2016. In written responses to questions from the committee, she disputed a news report saying she met with Simpson before and after the Trump Tower meeting.

But in response to another written question, she said she met with Simpson on an “as-needed basis,” but “I cannot name specific dates because I do not keep a log of my meetings…”

GIULIANI: TRUMP WON’T SIT DOWN FOR MUELLER INTERVIEW UNLESS COMEY SITS DOWN FOR INTERVIEW AND GET INVESTIGATED

Posted on

 

Rudy Giuliani  said President Trump will not sit down with Robert Mueller unless James Comey sits down with Mueller.

Laura Ingraham: Do you have any information or sense… that Bob Mueller gave immunity to Jim Comey?

Rudy Giuliani: No I don’t. I have no idea if he was given immunity. I don’t know why he’s not being investigated. That troubles us because a lot of the President’s statements contradict Comey. They’re much more logical than Comey’s but they contradict his. If you want to just believe Comey then you’re (Trump) is walking into a trap. And Comey has not been investigated. So I don’t think we would sit him down for an interview unless Comey was investigated and treated in the same way.

 

CONFIRMED! OBAMA-COMEY FBI RAN SPY OPERATION AGAINST TRUMP CAMPAIGN

Posted on

TrumpComey-AP

 

  •  Leakers revealed that the FBI had a “top secret intelligence source” — a U.S. citizen who likely lived overseas — who had spied on members of the Trump campaign for the FBI.

 

Leakers to the New York Times confirmed in a story published on Wednesday that the FBI had run a spy operation on the Trump campaign that involved government informants, secret subpoenas, and possible wiretaps.

The story comes ahead of the release of the pending Department of Justice inspector general report on the FBI’s actions during the 2016 election, and likely is an attempt by the leakers to paint the FBI’s efforts in the most flattering light possible.

But the story revealed that the FBI – which is supposed to be an apolitical agency – was spying on the Trump campaign through phone records and with “at least one” human asset.

“The F.B.I. obtained phone records and other documents using national security letters — a secret type of subpoena — officials said. And at least one government informant met several times with Mr. Page and Mr. Papadopoulos,” the Times reported, citing “current and former officials.”

The revelation of “at least one government informant” appears to confirm a Washington Post story last week in which leakers revealed that the FBI had a “top secret intelligence source” — a U.S. citizen who likely lived overseas — who had spied on members of the Trump campaign for the FBI.

CRAZY ANTI-TRUMP CHEESECAKE FACTORY EMPLOYEES ATTACK BLACK MAN FOR WEARING MAGA HAT

Posted on Updated on

 

  • Some of the employees also referred to him as a “n**ger” in their conversations among each other.
  • “So then all the employees started standing there, saying things out loud, like, ‘I’m going to knock his head in so hard his hat’s going to come off,” the witness continued.

 

( Daily Wire ) On Mother’s Day, employees at a Cheesecake Factory in Miami, Florida, verbally attacked and made threatening gestures toward a black man who dined with his girlfriend’s family simply because he was wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat, according to multiple witnesses interviewed by The Daily Wire.

The Sunday incident allegedly began at the Cheesecake Factory located inside Dadeland Mall when 22-year-old Eugenior Joseph was seated while wearing his MAGA hat.

According to multiple witnesses and Joseph’s own account, a woman who worked at the restaurant walked up to him and started pointing at his hat, signaling for the other employees to come over.

DEMOCRATS TO FIGHT ANTI-VOTER FRAUD ‘BALLOT HARVESTING’ BAN IN ARIZONA – CLAIMS IT OPPRESSES MINORITY VOTES

Ballot Harvesting

 

  • Under the law, if a person gets caught taking other people’s completed ballots to the polls for them, he or she could face felony charges.
  • Democrats have argued those efforts are a veiled attempt to strip away minority voting power

 

Democrats are continuing their legal battle against Arizona’s “ballot harvesting” law, claiming it was passed to dilute minority voting power.

This comes even as a federal judge recently ruled the law was constitutional.

The law, which makes it illegal for absentee voters to allow others to collect their completed absentee ballots and submit them to election officials on the voters’ behalf, was enacted in 2016. Under the law, if a person gets caught taking other people’s completed ballots to the polls for them, he or she could face felony charges.

The Arizona Democratic Party and Democratic National Committee sued the state and Maricopa County over the law. But it was upheld May 8 after U.S. District Judge Douglas Rayes ruled the groups failed to show that the Arizona legislature passed the law with the intent of suppressing minority voters.

Democrats have vowed to continue their legal fight.

“I respect the court’s decision but I don’t agree with it and that’s why,” said State Rep. Richard Andrade, D-Glendale about why the ruling was still being challenged. “It’s something that really impacts certain people.”

Andrade said the law disenfranchises those who live in remote areas, working-class families, minorities and those with disabilities because they have a tough time getting to a post office.

TRUMP VISITS MELANIA AFTER A KIDNEY SURGERY AT WALTER RRED HOSPITAL

Trump flies to Walter Reed to visit Melania after she undergoes kidney procedure

 

President Donald Trump flew to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center Monday and visited FirstLady Melania Trump hours after she underwent a kidney procedure.

The first lady’s office announced the first lady had the procedure Monday.  President Trump was at the White House Monday when her surgery occurred.

The president flew via Marine One Monday afternoon to visit the flagship military hospital in Bethesda, Maryland – avoiding a movement that otherwise might have snarled Washington D.C.’s traffic at rush hour.

Melania Trump underwent an embolization procedure, likely to remove a cyst from her kidney. Her office said it was benign, or non-cancerous.

Trump tweeted about the visit while he was en route. ‘Heading over to Walter Reed Medical Center to see our great First Lady, Melania. Successful procedure, she is in good spirits. Thank you to all of the well-wishers!’

MUELLER FORCED FLYNN INTO PLEA DEAL TO AVOID DISCOVERY OF CORRUPTION AND LIES

Posted on

 

  • Former National Security Advisor Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn plead guilty to one count of lying to the FBI, despite evidence and admissions from senior FBI officials that he did not lie.
  • New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik: “That was the purpose of forcing him into the plea… to avoid a review of discovery. They never anticipated this information would become public.”
  • Chuck Grassley: “According to that agent’s contemporaneous notes, Director Comey specifically told us during that briefing that the FBI agents who interviewed Lt. General Michael Flynn, “saw nothing that led them to believe [he was] lying.”
  •  “McCabe was apparently trying to find a reason, any reason, to make it look like Flynn was lying. But the truth of the matter is – no one thought he lied, not even the agent that hated Trump.”

 

From Sara Carter:

The chairman of the powerful Senate Judiciary Committee is demanding that the Department of Justice and FBI adhere to requests made over a year ago and turn over all documentation associated with the bureau’s investigation into former National Security Advisor Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. Flynn, who plead guilty to one count of lying to the FBI, despite evidence and admissions from senior FBI officials that he did not lie.

 

Grassley requested that FBI Special Agent Joe Pientka, who was with Strzok during his White House  interview on Jan. 24, 2017, be made available “for a transcribed interview with Committee staff no later than one week following the production of the requested documents.”

The committee also had a “non-partisan law enforcement officer who was present,” during the interview with Flynn Grassley revealed in the letter.

“The agent was on detail to the Committee staff at the time,” Grassley stated. “According to that agent’s contemporaneous notes, Director Comey specifically told us during that briefing that the FBI agents who interviewed Lt. General Michael Flynn, “saw nothing that led them to believe [he was] lying.” Our own Committee staff’s notes indicate that Mr. Comey said the “agents saw no change in his demeanor or tone that would say he was being untruthful.”

According to numerous law enforcement officials I’ve spoken to over the past year, neither Strzok or Pientka believed Flynn was lying during their interview with him, as reported. 

“There’s a lot these agents can reveal about that day and what (former FBI Deputy Director Andrew) McCabe’s role was in all of it,” said a U.S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak on the matter. “McCabe was apparently trying to find a reason, any reason, to make it look like Flynn was lying. But the truth of the matter is – no one thought he lied, not even the agent that hated Trump.”

OH BOY! Iranian Regime Threatens to Release Names of Western Officials Who Took Bribes to Pass Nuke Deal

 

Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Hossein Jaberi Ansari warned Western officials this week that if they do not put pressure on the Trump administration the Iranian regime will leak the names of all Western officials who were bribed to pass the weak deal.

H.J.Ansari Zarif’s senior advisor: “If Europeans stop trading with Iran and don’t put pressure on US then we will reveal which western politicians and how much money they had received during nuclear negotiations to make happen.” That would be interesting.

AVENATTI TWEETS 2016 PHOTOS OF FLYNN, COHEN WITH QATARI BILLIONAIRE AL-RUMAIHI ACCUSED IN BRIBERY PLOT….AND?

Posted on Updated on

IN THE QATAR: Stormy Daniels lawyer Michael Avenatti tweeted out photos from Trump Tower from Dec. 12, 2016, when Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, fired national security advisor Gen. Mike Flynn, and now Energy Secretary Rick Perry lingered in the lobby

 

 

( Daily Mail ) Stormy Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti has tweeted out Trump Tower photos of Michael Cohen and a man he claims is a Qatari investor who according to a lawsuit boasted former Trump’s former top national security aide didn’t turn down ‘our money.’

‘Warning ignored. So here it goes. December 12, 2016 – Trump Tower. Details to follow…’ Avenatti tweeted on Sunday, without much clarifying further explanation.

The tweet contained three images. One showed Cohen and fired national security advisor Gen. Mike Flynn, who has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI and is cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller.

Pictured in the background is a man who appears to be Qatari investor Ahmed Al-Rumaihi – who according to a lawsuit once said Flynn tried to bribe him.

Although Al-Rumaihi appeared like he could be the man in the photo, Avenatti did not identify him until hours after his initial tweet.

‘Why was Ahmed Al-Rumaihi meeting with Michael Cohen and Michael Flynn in December 2016 and why did Mr. Al-Rumaihi later brag about bribing administration officials according to a sworn declaration filed in court?’ Avenatti asked in a tweet Sunday evening.

 

Stormy Daniels' lawyer Michael Avenatti tweeted out photos from Trump Tower from Dec. 12, 2016, when Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, fired national security advisor Gen. Mike Flynn, and now Energy Secretary Rick Perry lingered in the lobby

 

Another photo Avenatti tweeted is of Cohen with a group of people behind him. A third shows Cohen with another group in the lobby of Trump Tower.

Al-Rumaihi appears in a shocking legal case where rapper Ice Cube and investor Jeff Kwatinetz claim the Qatari poured millions into their BIG3 basketball league in an effort to get close to former chief White House strategist Steve Bannon.

Kwatinetz is a former colleague and friend of Bannon’s.

And Kwatinetz claims that after Bannon had been fired by Trump and left his Breitbart website, the Qatari wanted to set up a meeting with him to offer to ‘underwrite all of his political efforts in return for his support’.

As DailyMail.com reported, they claim al Rumaihi invested less than the agreed-upon $20 million in the league, an infusion described in part as an effort to get to Bannon.

‘Mr. Al-Rumaihi requested I set up a meeting between him, the Qatari government, and Steven Bannon, and to tell Steve Bannon that Qatar would underwrite all of his political efforts in return for his support,’ Kwatinetz said in the filing.

Kwatinetz said in the court document that he was ‘appalled’ at the idea of ‘a bribe of any kind’, declined the offer immediately and did not tell Bannon about it.

According to the court document: ‘Mr. Al-Rumahi laughed and then stated to me that I shouldn’t be naive, that so many Washington politicians take our money, and stated ‘do you think [Michael] Flynn turned down our money?’

It appeared to be that statement that Avenatti was referencing when he tweeted about those who ‘brag about bribing administration officials.’

LOONY STATE CALIFORNIA BILL WOULD REPLACE PRESIDENTS’ DAY WITH ‘MAY DAY’, A COMMUNIST HOLDAY

Posted on

  • The bill would subsequently get rid of either George Washington or Abraham Lincoln’s birthday as a holiday and designate May 1 as “International Workers’ Day.”
  • International Socialist Workers’ Day, or “May Day” had been observed in countries under Communist rule and was an official holiday of the Soviet Union.

A California assemblyman vehemently argued against a bill that would adopt International Workers’ Day as a paid holiday.

The bill, introduced by Assemblyman Miguel Santiago (D), would designate the third Monday in February “as a single school holiday to be known as ‘Presidents’ Day.'”

“Are we in competition to become the laughingstock of the United States?” Assemblyman Matthew Harper (R) asked. “This is ridiculous. This is insane.”

 

The bill would subsequently get rid of either George Washington or Abraham Lincoln’s birthday as a holiday and designate May 1 as “International Workers’ Day.”

International Socialist Workers’ Day, or “May Day” had been observed in countries under Communist rule and was an official holiday of the Soviet Union.

“Seriously, the substitution of adding International Socialist Workers’ Day? May Day? The day of parades in the Soviet Union?” Harper said.

“I’m aghast that a bill like this would be able to get through committee.”

  • “For 70 years has Jerusalem been awaiting international recognition, until President Donald Trump, in a courageous move, recognized Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel,” the club wrote. “President Trump has shown courage, and true love of the Israeli people and their capital, and these days other other countries are following his lead in giving Jerusalem its rightful status.”

 

( Times of Israel ) Jerusalem’s largest soccer club announced Sunday that it has changed its name to “Beitar Trump Jerusalem,” in honor of the US president’s recognition of Israel’s capital and moving his country’s embassy from Tel Aviv.

In an announcement on Facebook, the team praised the US president.

“For 70 years has Jerusalem been awaiting international recognition, until President Donald Trump, in a courageous move, recognized Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel,” the club wrote. “President Trump has shown courage, and true love of the Israeli people and their capital, and these days other other countries are following his lead in giving Jerusalem its rightful status.”

The announcement comes the day before the official opening of the new embassy in Jerusalem’s Arnona neighborhood, in a ceremony to be attended by US Deputy Secretary of State John J. Sullivan, Secretary of Treasury Steven Mnuchin, Senior Adviser Jared Kushner, Adviser Ivanka Trump, and Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt, as well as ambassadors and officials from all over the world.

Avenatti Exposed: Stormy’s Lawyer Owes IRS $5 Million, 45 Lawsuits Over Failed Venture, May Face Disbarment

Posted on Updated on

 

( Zero Hedge ) After appearing on CNN 59 times to claim the moral high ground over President Trump’s alleged decade-old affair with Daniels, skeletons in Avenatti’s closet are now beginning to pour out.

Questions have emerged over who’s funding Avenattihow he was privy to Trump attorney Michael Cohen’s bank recordsand how exactly did he obtain banking transactions for two men also named Michael Cohen, who he wrongly accused in a seven-page “dossier” released this week. 

Other questions have come to light over a bankrupt coffee chain Avenatti left in smoldering ashes with $5 million in unpaid taxes to the IRS, an alleged $160,000 owed for unpaid coffee, and over 45 lawsuits filed in connection with the failed venture.

Bitter coffee deal

As outlined in a legal complaint seeking Avenatti’s disbarment, the balding provocateur “bought a company out of bankruptcy and then used it for a “pump and dump” scheme to deprive federal and state taxing authorities of millions of dollars,” which left over $5 million in unpaid taxes to the IRS.

Avenatti purchased Tully’s out of bankruptcy in 2013, in partnership with actor Patrick Dempsey, who is best known for his role as Derek “McDreamy” Shepherd in the TV show “Grey’s Anatomy.” Dempsey sued Avenatti in August 2013 to break off the partnership.

Since then, Tully’s has significantly struggled. More than 45 lawsuits have been filed against the chain’s parent company, which Avenatti says he no longer owns. In 2017, the company owed roughly $5 million in unpaid taxes to the Internal Revenue Service. And, in March, the coffee chain abruptly closed all locations. –Business Insider

JIMMY KIMMEL SURRENDERS: ‘American People Have Had Enough Trump-Bashing’

Posted on

 

In an interview with Deadline, Kimmel was asked whether he had prepared a “barrelful of barbs” for President Trump in his upcoming standup routine for ABC’s upfronts.

“Oh, wow. Yeah, you know, I hadn’t really thought about it that way, but I guess you’re right. Hopefully, it’ll be the last upfront of the Trump era, too,” Kimmel said.

“So, I don’t know, I don’t know how much focus there will be on that. I think people have had an ass-full of Donald Trump, and I feel like the upfront is a time to look within and make fun of ourselves,” Kimmel said of his comedy routine for the annual event that sees major advertisers gather to purchase airtime on networks, like ABC, ahead of the summer and fall TV seasons.

Kimmel went on to say that although his upcoming routine will not be a “Trump-free zone,” it will not be so focused on events in and around the White House.

“Well, I can’t imagine that it will be entirely Trump free, but I’m not planning on that to be my focus,” he said. “Already I’m seeing a lot of other things to point out, to make fun of.”

Since Trump was elected president, Kimmel has spent much of his comedic airtime attacking Trump, his family, and members of his administration. Prominent examples include describing Trump as “mentally ill” and mocking his wife Melania Trump’s Slovenian accent.

STORMY DANIELS ONCE RAN FOR U.S. SENATE IN 2009 – YEAR SHE WAS ARRESTED FOR BEATING HER HUSBAND

Posted on

 

DID YOU KNOW Porno Actress Stormy Daniels Was ARRESTED For Beating Her Husband?…Did You Know She Also Ran For US Senator In 2009 Against A Republican?

( 100%Fedup ) I bet you didn’t know that Stormy Daniels ran for US Senate against a Republican in 2009. I bet you didn’t know that she was arrested on domestic abuse charges in 2009. I bet you didn’t know her campaign manager’s car was blown up while he was out for a walk with his wife. Why does the media never mention Daniels’ political ambitions when they talk about her coordinated smear campaign agaisnt Donald Trump? Why do they never mention her domestic abuse charges or that her campaign manager’s car was blown up under suspicious circumstances?

While the mainstream media attempts to remake the XXX actress’ image to look more like a school librarian, than a porn star in her appearances on fake news cable outlets and a variety of late night shows, the fact of the matter is, she’s still a pornography actress with political ambitions, and apparently a violent temper to boot.

 

……

In February 2009, CNN did a story on Daniels political ambitions. Funny, that CNN’s Andersen Cooper never mentioned her arrest for domestic abuse, or her run for US Senate against a Republican candidate. 

From the CNN article (promotional piece):

 “I think anyone that knows me … is more than aware of that,” Daniels said. “Politics can’t be any dirtier of a job than the one I am already in.”

According to a capsule bio on the Draft Stormy Web site, Daniels has been “breaking barriers and shattering glass ceilings her entire life,” serving as editor of her high school newspaper and president of her school’s 4-H Club and eventually transferring “her determination and talents to the professional level, becoming a featured performer in the adult entertainment industry.”

Mueller Indicted A Russian Company That Didn’t Even Exist, Court Transcripts Say

Posted on Updated on

 

  • ” Concord Catering company didn’t exist as a legal entity during the time period alleged by the government,”

 

( Daily Wire ) This week, one of the Russian companies accused by Special Counsel Robert Mueller of funding a conspiracy to meddle in the 2016 U.S. presidential election was revealed in court to not have existed during the time period alleged by Mueller’s team of prosecutors, according to a lawyer representing the Defendant.

U.S. Magistrate Judge G. Michael Harvey asked Eric Dubelier, one of two lawyers representing the accused Russian company, Concord Management and Consulting LLC, if he was representing a third company listed in Mueller’s indictment.

“What about Concord Catering?” Harvey asked Dubelier. “The government makes an allegation that there’s some association. I don’t mean for you to – do you represent them, or not, today? And are we arraigning them as well?”

“We’re not,” Dubelier responded. “And the reason for that, Your Honor, is I think we’re dealing with a situation of the government having indicted the proverbial ham sandwich.”

“That company didn’t exist as a legal entity during the time period alleged by the government,” Dubelier continued. “If at some later time they show me that it did exist, we would probably represent them. But for purposes of today, no, we do not.”

The term “indict a ham sandwich” is believed to have originated from a 1985 report in the New York Daily News when New York Chief Judge Sol Wachtler told the news publication that government prosecutors have so much influence over grand juries that they could get them to “indict a ham sandwich.”

Daily Caller  by Chuck Ross

Special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating foreign donations to President Donald Trump’s inaugural committee, according to a new report.

Mueller’s investigators have questioned several witnesses about millions of dollars in contributions from donors with links to Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Russia, according to ABC News.

One of the people interviewed is Thomas Barrack, a longtime Trump friend who handled financing for the president’s inaugural committee.

Barrack, a billionaire real estate investor, pulled in more than $100 million for the inauguration, ABC News reported. That was more than double what was raised for former President Obama’s inauguration in 2009.

Witnesses have been asked about Andrew Intrater, the chairman of Columbus Nova, the company revealed on May 8 to have paid longtime Trump lawyer Michael Cohen nearly $500,000 in the months after Trump’s inauguration.

Intrater is the cousin of Viktor Vekselberg, a Russian billionaire who was recently sanctioned by the U.S. Treasury Department. Mueller’s team interviewed Intrater and Vekselberg within the past two months.

Intrater contributed $250,000 to Trump’s swearing-in event, which both he and Vekselberg attended.

DEMS MAD MAX :) MAXINE WATERS: ‘I Resent the Remark About Making America Great Again’

Posted on

  • Maxine Waters said she “resent[s] that remark about making America great again.”

 

 

Democratic California Congresswoman Maxine Waters, a frequent Trump critic, blasted a Pennsylvania Republican for mentioning the prospect of “making America great again.”

Rep. Mike Kelly, who represents Erie and Butler, said on the House floor that lawmakers must work harder toward “trying to make sure that we’re making America great every day in every way.”

“Stop talking about discrimination and start talking more about the nation,” he said. “We are coming together as a people in spite of what you say.”

Before Waters was offered the floor, Rep. Tom McClintock (R-Calif.) — the presiding officer at the time — reminded Kelly to address remarks to the chair.

Waters, of South Los Angeles, began speaking and appeared to shout at Kelly, who was apparently turning to exit the House chamber.
