CONGRESS SEND CRIMINAL REFERRALS FOR HILLARY, COMEY, LYNCH, McCabe, STRZOK AND LISA PAGE

Posted on

  • GOP House sent criminal referrals to Sessions for: former FBI Director James Comey, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, as well as FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok and his lover, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, for separate violations.

 

Republican lawmakers on Wednesday sent a slew of criminal referrals to Attorney General Jeff Sessions for a number of Obama administration officials and senior FBI employees for violations of the law in connection to the Clinton email and Trump-Russia investigations.

Specifically, they sent criminal referrals to Sessions for: former FBI Director James Comey, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, as well as FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok and his lover, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, for separate violations.

The criminal referrals, first reported by investigative journalist Sara Carter, were made by Rep. Ron Desantis (R-FL), a senior member of the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform Committees who is leaving the House to run for Florida governor, and nine other colleagues.

Signatories included: GOP Reps. Andy Biggs (AZ), Dave Brat (VA), Jeff Duncan (SC), Matt Gaetz (FL), Paul A. Gosar (AZ), Andy Harris (MD), Jody Hice (GA), Todd Rokita (IN), Claudia Tenney (NY), and Ted Yoho (FL).

“Because we believe that those in positions of high authority should be treated the same as every other American, we want to be sure that the potential violations of law outlined below are vetted appropriately,” said the letter.

Paranoia grips Capitol Hill as 50 members of Congress likely involved in sexual harassment charges

Paranoia grips Capitol Hill as harassment scandal spreads

Lawmakers and aides are consumed by one question: Who’s next?

  • “I am hearing The Post has a list of 40-50, evenly split between the parties, that have had sexual harassment charges,” one lobbyist texted POLITICO.

The details change almost daily, but the rumor won’t die: A credible news organization is preparing to unmask at least 20 lawmakers in both parties for sexual misconduct.

Speculation about this theoretical megastory is spreading like wildfire across Congress and beyond, a lurking bad-press boogeyman that’s always described as on the verge of going public. And it’s far from the only worry that’s seeped into the collective psyche of Capitol Hill, where members and aides are now perpetually bracing for the next allegation to drop.

Washington is also gripped by uncertainty over whether the nationwide awakening to workplace misconduct might be manipulated into a political weapon.

…Part of the reason that the rumor about 20 or more lawmakers being unmasked as sexual harassers has proved so durable is that, after the recent wave of resignations, it feels both shocking and believable.

By last week, The Washington Post was the organization, and the number of members had grown more grandiose.

“I am hearing The Post has a list of 40-50, evenly split between the parties, that have had sexual harassment charges,” one lobbyist texted POLITICO.

RUMOR: 40+ CONGRESSMEN GUILTY OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT, CNN AND WASHINGTON POST WORKING ON STORIES

Posted on

 

  • Democratic strategist Michael Trujillo: SOURCES: and working on exposing 20-30 congressional members 4 sexual harassment
  • Neil King: Hearing the total may top 40.

 

( NTK ) The buzz around Capitol Hill is that after Franken, Conyers, Franks, and Farenthold, there’s more to come on exposing sexual harassment in Congress.

Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) is resigning over numerous harassment allegations. Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) is retiring over numerous allegations. Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) announced his retirement on Thursday over an ethics investigation. And Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-TX) will face an ethics probe over harassment allegations.

Rumor has it on Capitol Hill, though, that this is just the beginning of the reckoning in Congress over sexual harassment and sexual assault.

Michael Trujillo, a Democratic strategist, tweeted on Thursday that CNN and The Washington Post are working on a story “exposing 20-30 congressional members [for] sexual harassment.”

DC PHARMACIST: SOME LAWMAKERS TAKE ALZHEIMER’S DRUGS…LIKE PELOSI?

Posted on Updated on

  • D.C. Pharmacist Mike Kim: ‘Wow, they’re making the highest laws of the land and they might not even remember what happened yesterday.’

 

STAT News reports:

Mike Kim, the reserved pharmacist-turned-owner of the pharmacy, said he has gotten used to knowing the most sensitive details about some of the most famous people in Washington.

“At first it’s cool, and then you realize, I’m filling some drugs that are for some pretty serious health problems as well. And these are the people that are running the country,” Kim said, listing treatments for conditions like diabetes and Alzheimer’s.

“It makes you kind of sit back and say, ‘Wow, they’re making the highest laws of the land and they might not even remember what happened yesterday.’”

Kim’s tiny pharmacy — which, at its busiest, sends as many as 100 prescriptions to members in a day — is nestled among Capitol Hill’s stateliest row houses, less than four blocks from the Capitol building itself. Founded in 1867 and named for a previous owner, the pharmacy predates penicillin, the American health insurance system, and even the Lincoln Memorial.

TRUMP TO CONGRESS: LEGALIZE DACA OR I WILL REVISIT IT

Posted on Updated on

 

Pres. Trump: Congress now has 6 months to legalize DACA (something the Obama Administration was unable to do). If they can’t, I will revisit this issue!

DACA is a 2012 executive order by Barack Obama. This is Trump’s way of letting Congress fix an executive order that was nothing but amnesty.

Illegal immigration problem needs common sense solution. The merit system for legal immigrants is a good start. But for the illegals, an inevitable amnesty is on the horizon.

But I believe all illegals that would be granted the amnesty  should be punished with one thing – do not allow them to vote for the next 50 years, that way they are going to be useless to the Democrat Party. Build the wall and deport the criminals.

According to Breitbart:

President Trump called on Congress to “legalize” DACA late Tuesday, just hours after his administration announced the repeal of the amnesty for children brought to the country illegally — promising that he will “revisit this issue” if Congress does not turn DACA into legislation.

The tweet appears to be adopting an argument used by many establishment Republicans that posits the problem with DACA was not its substance, but primarily that it was done unilaterally by President Obama, not through Congress.

TRUMP: END CONGRESS OBAMACARE EXEMPTION IF THEY WON’T PASS OBAMACARE REPEAL BILL

Posted on Updated on

If Obamacare is so good, how come our lawmakers exempted themselves, their families, their cronies and their staff from this ‘amazing’ law? Time for Trump to pass an executive order and remove this loophole. Ending the special perk funded by taxpayers may be the only leverage President Trump has to fulfill his promise to repeal ObamaCare.

A frustrated President Trump took to twitter on Saturday to warn Congress  that if  new healthcare bill is not approved soon, they can forget about their exemption from Obamacare.

  • If a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon!
  • Unless the Republican Senators are total quitters, Repeal & Replace is not dead! Demand another vote before voting on any other bill!

 

  • After seven years of “talking” Repeal & Replace, the people of our great country are still being forced to live with imploding ObamaCare!

 

Trump also calls for ending of 60 votes and switch to 51 majority votes.

  • Republican Senate must get rid of 60 vote NOW! It is killing the R Party, allows 8 Dems to control country. 200 Bills sit in Senate. A JOKE!
  • The very outdated filibuster rule must go. Budget reconciliation is killing R’s in Senate. Mitch M, go to 51 Votes NOW and WIN. IT’S TIME!
  • Republicans in the Senate will NEVER win if they don’t go to a 51 vote majority NOW. They look like fools and are just wasting time……
  • 8 Dems totally control the U.S. Senate. Many great Republican bills will never pass, like Kate’s Law and complete Healthcare. Get smart!
  • If the Senate Democrats ever got the chance, they would switch to a 51 majority vote in first minute. They are laughing at R’s. MAKE CHANGE!
