New Poll: Conservatives Say Revoke Their Security Clearances

A new FedUp PAC poll shows that conservatives overwhelmingly agree that President Trump should revoke the security clearances of those involved in the unfolding scandal regarding the Obama administration’s spying on people in the Trump campaign.

Democrats Have Already Started The Second Civil War

The FBI defines domestic terrorism as events that appear intended to "intimidate or coerce a civilian population" or "influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion." If that is not what the Left has been engaged in with increasing ferocity, especially over the past two weeks, then “intimidation and coercion” have lost their meaning.

What Obama and his political Choom Gang did is far worse than Watergate

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

When Donald Trump was running for president, establishment Republicans and Democrats alike ran around thumping their chests feigning outrage that Mr. Trump would not be capable of respecting the Constitution. At that time, the Obama administration was spying on Mr. Trump and his campaign and carrying out the most extensive and brazen undercover espionage-war campaign against political opponents that we have ever seen. All the while nary a peep from these same smarmy swamp creatures as Mr. Obama rolled the constitution into joints so he and his political Choom Gang could smoke bales of weed.

In Politicized Justice, Desperate Times Call for Disparate Measures

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

Director Comey had repeatedly assured President Trump that he was not a criminal suspect. As would have been known by any sensible person, and particularly one as sophisticated as Comey, this astonishing congressional testimony by an FBI director can only have signaled to the media and the public that the president of the United States was under investigation for serious crimes. But other than that, I suppose you could say the Justice Department and the FBI handled the Clinton and Trump cases exactly the same way. Equal justice under the law, right?

Trump Demands DOJ 'Fess Up About Spying On His Campaign

President Trump has dropped a bomb on the Department of Justice by demanding answers about why Stefan Halper, a long-time CIA operative with extensive links to the Bush family who was responsible for a dirty and likely illegal spying operation in the 1980 presidential election was engaged to spy on his campaign.

Rod Rosenstein's Coup Against Trump Intensifies

Deputy Attorney General  Rod Rosenstein's government within the government has now crossed a line that is unacceptable. Rep. Mark Meadows has drafted eight articles of impeachment against Rosenstein. We urge CHQ readers to call Rep. Meadows, the toll-free Capitol Switchboard (1-866-220-0044) urge him to file the articles of impeachment against Rosenstein immediately.

Senate Judiciary Committee Passes Unconstitutional “Protect Mueller” Bill

This isn’t about protecting the integrity of an investigation that long-ago jumped the rails of its original charge to investigate the non-existent collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians. It is merely a Democratic campaign tactic to send a message that the Senate is willing to stand up to President Trump.

The Supreme Court Already Said Trump Can Fire Mueller

The reasoning in Myers v. United States, decided by the Supreme Court in 1926, applies to the President’s ability to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller if he so chooses. Congressional attempts to “protect” Mueller from the President’s clear constitutional authority are intentional efforts to precipitate a constitutional crisis for the benefit of those who think impeaching President Trump will benefit them politically.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions Wakes Up

While things are far from perfect at DOJ conservatives can take heart that the Attorney General has forcefully taken on one of the most important challenges facing the Trump presidency and constitutional government; California’s “sanctuary” for illegal aliens policies.

Fighting Russian Interference In American Politics

It shouldn’t take a Special Counsel investigation to identify and expose Russian activities we know have been going on for a century.  It is time for America to get back in the counterintelligence fight by cleaning house and getting rid of incompetent counterintelligence operatives such as the FBI's Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, and it is time for Congress, as it did with the HUAC investigations, to plumb the full depth of Russian efforts to sow discord in our country.

Is It Time To Shut Down The FBI?

It's time for radical change at the Department of Justice where Attorney General Jeff Sessions has been hobbled by careerist underlings, such as FBI Director Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who have worked harder at protecting their fellow careerists and their institutional turf than they have worked at protecting the American people.

Investigating The Messenger #HeadsMustRoll

Instead of looking into whether one of the highest-ranking officials in the United States government had been compromised by a foreign power, the Obama-era FBI and Department of Justice decided to investigate the messenger, a political small fry with no power to affect policy or, for example, approve selling 20 percent of America’s uranium to the Russians.

#HeadsMustRoll Why There Must Be A Special Counsel To Investigate FISA Abuse

The Steele criminal referral we reported on last week in essence asks the FBI to investigate a source with whom FBI officials collaborated, and whose evidence they used in a fashion that’s under congressional investigation. The referral reveals the deep conflicts of interest of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and others who signed the questionable wiretap applications using the Steele dossier.

Rep. Devin Nunes: Twenty-First Century Patriot

There are few patriots in Washington who will stand in the breach and take the pressure, smears and abuse that Devin Nunes has suffered since he resolved to make public the memo about Obama-era FBI and Department of Justice attempts to undermine Donald Trump. All liberty loving Americans of whatever political stripe owe him a debt of gratitude for his patriotism, perseverance and integrity.

FISA Memo Released FBI Assistant Director Resigns

The FBI Director himself read the memo on Sunday night, and HPSCI staffers met with FBI agents on Monday to further discuss its contents. After the memo was released to the FBI Director, FBI Assistant Director Andrew McCabe abruptly resigned. However, it may not have been the FISA memo alone that gave McCabe the push out the door.

What We Know About #ReleaseTheMemo

The Nunes memo is the first official document to summarize and substantiate the explosive charges against Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and former FBI Director James Comey. The public has a right to see that evidence, and Congress has a duty to expose and refer for prosecution all of those involved – especially those who are still serving in government.
