FBI

Robert Mueller's Valentine Writers

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

It's apparently distasteful to report that among the 15 Mueller lawyers, nine are Democratic donors — several of whom contributed to Clinton's 2016 campaign. This information isn't disturbing to the "objective" media. Reporting it is. There's a reason these "news" magazines have crumbled: They are only trustworthy if what you want to read is a Democratic National Committee talking-points memo.

Did the DOJ Misuse the Steele Dossier — to Spy on the Trump Campaign?

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

In the unmasking controversy, it seems Trump was more interested in politically exploiting the specter of abusive unmasking than in ordering the disclosure of what actually happened. Is the same thing true of the dossier? I don’t know why the FBI and Justice Department are stonewalling the Intelligence Committee. Suffice it to say, however, that the president could order disclosure if he wanted to. He hasn’t. If he persists in that posture, we have to assume he would prefer that we not know what the FBI told the FISA Court.

Mueller’s probe doesn't end with a bang, but with a whimper

Ned Ryun, The Hill

I think it’s high time for President Trump to do what he should have done a year ago: declassify everything related to the Russian collusion case and the Hillary Clinton email investigation. In declassifying everything, Trump can let Americans can make up their own minds, know the truth, and move on to better things to do with their lives.

The FBI-Led Coup Against President Trump

It is time for Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray to recover control of their agencies before the soft coup being led by Robert Mueller, James Comey and rogue FBI agent Peter Strzok engenders a real constitutional crisis.

Trump's Right — the FBI Is in Tatters

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The FBI seems suddenly concerned with leakers when it affects them. Well, that's only a part of the story -- but a significant part. Like most bureaucratic organizations, whether in law enforcement or not, as they grow self-preservation increasingly becomes the dominant motivation. In the case of the FBI, it's self-preservation leavened with a significant dollop of political bias, conscious and unconscious.

Trump Tweets Order To DOJ: Will Sessions Override Corrupt Dems And Comply?

As much as we respect Attorney General Jeff Sessions, President Trump wasn’t elected, and he wasn’t appointed Attorney General, to continue the Obama-era policies of defying congressional subpoenas. If Jeff Sessions can’t get his underlings to comply with Congressional subpoenas heads should roll – either theirs or his.

The Rules Don’t Apply To Democrat Bigwigs Like Rep. John Conyers

“Your story won’t do shit to him,” said a former staffer for Democratic Rep. John Conyers. “He’s untouchable.” Based on the Bill Clinton and Al Franken precedents it looks like the former staffer is right – at least if you are a powerful Democrat.

FBI has not verified Trump dossier

Byron York, Washington Examiner

The bottom line appears to be that the FBI and the Justice Department are not vouching for the accuracy of the substantive allegations of collusion in the dossier. Indeed, a careful reading of Adam Schiff's interview with the Wall Street Journal suggests even the combative top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee isn't doing so, either. The most explosive parts of the dossier remain unverified.

Hillary Clinton, Alger Hiss and the Schism in the American Soul

Just as in the 1950s the American Left and the Democratic Party tried to convince their fellow citizens that the objective truth of Communist penetration of the American government did not exist, so today's Democrats maintain the lie that the Clintons have done nothing worth investigating.

DOJ Lifts Gag Order On Clinton - Uranium One Informant: What’s Next?

Now that the gag order has been lifted it is time for Attorney General Sessions to choose a side in the much larger question: Why was the nondisclosure agreement put in place to begin with, who demanded the informant sign it, and what was their relationship with Bill and Hillary Clinton?

The Clintons Corrupt Everything They Touch

Until Democrats rid themselves of the Clintons, and stop covering for them, the Democratic Party cannot be considered a legitimate political party; it is merely one cog in a vast conspiracy to justify and cover up the Clintons' crimes.

Paul Ryan at the Center of the Greatest Political Scandal of the 21st Century

The greatest political scandal of the 21st Century isn’t that the Democrats allowed, or perhaps even facilitated the penetration of the House IT network by a ring of operatives with known ties to hostile Islamist interests, it is that Speaker Paul Ryan and his leadership team have done everything they can to cover it up.

Collusion and the Trump Dossier

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

The administration complains about unmasking, but never takes the steps Trump could easily take to expose it as an abuse of power. Just like it complains about the dossier, but never takes the steps Trump could easily take to expose it as a fraud. None of this would prove collusion between Trump’s campaign and the Kremlin. It does suggest, however, that there were good reasons to conduct an investigation.

Dems Sifting The Air To Tie Vegas Shooting To Trump

When Democrats and the establishment media blame “gun nuts” and “white men w/ guns” for the acts of psychopaths, we conservatives should not take the bait and be bullied into buying the Left’s “blame the gun” narrative.

FBI fights public release of Trump dossier info

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Senate investigators have had problems getting the FBI to reveal information about the Trump dossier. They're not the only ones. Outside groups filing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests are running up against a stone wall when it comes to the dossier. When it comes to the Freedom of Information Act, the FBI is resisting the release of even the most basic information. "They're fighting us on everything," Judicial Watch chief Tom Fitton told me recently. "They're fighting us tooth and nail."

FBI Says No Public Interest In Hillary Clinton Email Files: Time To Prove Them Wrong!

Something is definitely wrong at the FBI if this is their official position, but we urge all CHQ readers to demonstrate the public interest in releasing Hillary Clinton's FBI files by going to the White House petition website through this link and signing the petition.

Next stop for Trump dossier probe: the FBI

Byron York, Washington Examiner

The dossier remains critical in the Trump-Russia investigation for several reasons. It contains a number of sensational allegations on the question of whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russians. It raises questions about Clinton supporters indirectly paying Kremlin-linked Russians for dirt on the Republican presidential candidate, now the president. And it played a role in the rapid deterioration of relations between Trump and Comey.

Democrat IT Spy Tries To Run To Pakistan: We Connect Some Dots For You

The House of Representatives, and especially the Capitol Police whose job is generally viewed as protecting Members from embarrassment, not counter-espionage, cannot be trusted to conduct a full and politics-free investigation of this national security disaster.

Was The Russian Lawyer's Meeting With Donald Trump Jr Part Of A Deep State Plot?

Connect the dots and it looks like the same group of dictator-friendly Democrats who got the the spurious dossier on then-candidate Donald Trump into the news have chosen this moment to leak information on Donald Jr. to keep the phony Russian collusion story alive.
