FBI

The Creepiest Part of the Lisa Page Transcript

David Catron, The American Spectator

Page and Strzok joined the investigation into collusion. Strzok soon indicated in a text to Page that he suspected “there was no big there there regarding any collusion with Trump” yet they both wanted to be part of the Mueller probe. So, if they had been bullied by the DOJ to let Clinton off the hook on her email server, and Strzok doubted that there was anything to the Russia collusion angle that both Clinton and the media were pushing, why would Page get further involved in another potential career killer? Love? Maybe, but I’m betting on fear.

Scams, Big and Small

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

A responsible media would call former intelligence officials out for trafficking in such thin claims, not hire them as pundits. But at a time when reporters pride themselves on rejecting “neutrality,” the Clappers, Brennans, and McCabes can count on an uncritical audience. The media has always been overwhelmingly liberal, but as Lara Logan of CBS points out it is now completely free of any journalistic restraints to mitigate that bias even slightly.

FBI’s Weaselgate

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

McCabe says that he wrote his memoir in response to Trump’s “relentless attack” on the FBI. But Trump hasn’t attacked the FBI; he has attacked those who sought to politicize it. The damage to the FBI has come not from Trump but from a cast of liberal partisans who turned it into a branch of the Democratic Party. It is the culture under Comey and McCabe that looks disturbingly abnormal and cult-like. The FBI had become under them a rogue agency with a sense of entitlement so deep that a constitutional firing could become an occasion for overthrowing a president.

The Fabrications That Almost Succeeded In Overthrowing President Trump

Andrew McCabe would have us all believe that HE believed the Steele “dirty dossier” and other purported contacts between the Trump campaign and various Russians or Russian-affiliated persons, even though he knew almost all those contacts were set-ups orchestrated by the Hillary Clinton campaign, the FBI and various other organs of the Obama administration.

The Only Way to Save the FBI Is to Expose Everything

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

How could this happen in this democratic republic?  If a thorough and complete exposition is not done of every aspect of this episode wherever it ends up, if the air is not fully cleared and miscreants punished, half the country will never, repeat never, trust the FBI or the DOJ again. That would be a catastrophe for the nation. The Federal Bureau of Investigation is currently the most important police agency not only in our country, but in the world. We're stuck with it, like it or not. Something must be done.

The Ruling Class’s Interference in Our Democracy

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

That politicized members of the FBI, operating like a rogue agency in a Third World country, wanted to void the election in effect doesn’t concern members of the media and the ruling class in the slightest. From the moment of Trump’s election, they have treated him as illegitimate and cheered every attempt to subvert his constitutional authority. All of this constitutes a much more serious threat or our democracy than anything Russia might have tried. It amounts to an attempt by a self-appointed ruling class to wrest democracy away from the people.

The Democrats’ Real Motivation For Opposing The Wall

We already know that the Obama administration abused the existing FISA protections and undertook surveillance of Sharyl Attkisson and many of President Trump’s political associates, and maybe even then-candidate Donald Trump as well. How long will it take before the Democrats’ surveillance regime moves beyond the border zone to encompass the entire country?

Sharyl Attkisson: The Government Has Rigged The Rules To Avoid Accountability

After years without turning over a single document in response to dozens of Sharyl Attkisson’s subpoenas, the government now argues that her case should be dismissed, in part, because she hasn’t learned the names of the “John Doe” federal agents to insert in the lawsuit; names which only the government knows and has refused to divulge.

New Poll: Most Americans Believe the Government Spies on Journalists, Like Sharyl Attkisson

A new poll from Rasmussen Reports confirms the damage done by the Obama-era abuses by the FBI and other intelligence agencies and gives further evidence that Americans are on the side of investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson and others who are trying to rip the veil of secrecy off Obama’s domestic spying operations.

The Paranoid Style at the FBI

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The gross and abusive politicization at the FBI is the obvious story here, yet the media portrays the probe with somber respect, as if it still reflects badly on Trump rather than an out-of-control FBI. Were official Washington not in the grip of obsessive Trump hatred, it would see the story as a stunning indictment of the FBI for squandering its objectivity in the pursuit of low and paranoid politics. In the past, the media chastised paranoid FBI agents for their “McCarthyism”; now they turn them into heroes, even as their suspicions prove embarrassingly hollow.

The Persecution Of Congressman Steve Stockman

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Steve Stockman is an old friend, a fellow limited government constitutional conservative, and the victim of a corrupt government vendetta. I urge you to go to the Conservative Legal Defense and Education Fund’s Patriot Defense Fund website and make your most generous donation to assist in Steve Stockman’s legal defense.

Spawn Of The Fake Steele Dossier

What research on the Steele dossier has slowly revealed is the scope and logistics of the information operation designed to sabotage an American election. Players include the press, political operatives from both parties, and law enforcement and intelligence officials.

The Crime OF Being Trump

The prosecutorial harassment of Donald Trump, those related to Donald Trump or in Donald Trump’s “circle” is an outrageous perversion of justice. What's more, the opprobrium heaped on the Trump family by the establishment media and popular culture has also claimed entirely innocent victims, such as Josh Trump of Delaware.

Checking Robert Mueller

Kimberley Strassel, Wall Street Journal

Robert Mueller has operated for 19 months as a law unto himself, reminding us of the awesome and destructive powers of special counsels. About the only possible check on Mr. Mueller is a judge who is wise to the tricks of prosecutors and investigators. Judges have the ability to reject plea deals and require a prosecutor to make a case at trial. The criminal-justice system isn’t only about holding defendants accountable; trials also provide oversight of investigators and their tactics. And judges are not obliged to follow prosecutors’ sentencing recommendations.

Comey Pleads The Hillary Memory Loss Defense

It seems that James Comey and Hillary Clinton are infected with the same memory loss virus that affects so many of the elite university graduates who make up DC’s political class, leading one to conclude it is not memories, but ethics and integrity that they are missing.

Time For Trump To Stop Defending Obama Era Wrongdoing

Just because the presidency changed from President Obama to President Trump, that does not mean that career government employees change. We urge all CHQ readers and friends to visit Sharyl Attkisson’s GoFundMe page and make your most generous contribution to expose the Obama administration’s wrongdoing and to identify the Deep State operatives behind it.

Democrats move the goalposts on FBI investigation

Editors, Washington Examiner

Democrats' only aim is to delay Kavanaugh’s confirmation until (they hope and pray) they take over the Senate in the midterm elections. At that point, they will simply refuse to let President Trump fill this or any other Supreme Court vacancy. Their goal, as Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, admitted, is to keep the slot formerly filled by Justice Anthony Kennedy open until 2020. If Senate Republicans let Democrats abuse and manipulate the process, they will deservedly lose not only the Senate but also all the respect of the people who used to vote for them.

Can We Trust the FBI?

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

This is the stuff of totalitarian cultures. If things were different, we could applaud an investigation into Judge Kavanaugh's activities and, I would imagine, so would he.  It would clear his name once and for all and he could go on with his life.  But no one would suggest an investigation by the NKVD or the Stasi would be fair.  What can we say about the FBI, given what we already know? Remember -- sear into your brain -- what happened and vote accordingly in November.

What Happens If Rod Rosenstein Is Out At The Department Of Justice?

We agree with the President that there is a “lingering stench” at the Justice Department and FBI, however, it is unclear whether Rod Rosenstein will resign, be fired or stay in his position. The question is, is firing Rosenstein a set-up as Sean Hannity suggests, or something that needs to happen right away, as Judge Jeanne Piro and Laura Ingraham have urged.

Democrats Go Full Stalin on Kavanaugh and Declassification

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

America has very different traditions from Russia or China. We are supposed to be immune to totalitarian government because of the magnificent democratic principles enshrined by our founders. But are we? Could it come in through the back door under the banner of people who say and even think they are doing the opposite, who think the other side is the fascist side? Or is it as simple as the fact that to some, the ends still justify the means, even though we have seen on multiple occasions the mass murder that leads to?
