The Real Origination Story of the Trump-Russia Investigation

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

From the “late spring” on, every report of Trump-Russia ties, no matter how unlikely and uncorroborated, was presumed to be proof of a traitorous arrangement. And every detail that could be spun into Trump-campaign awareness of Russian hacking, no matter how tenuous, was viewed in the worst possible light. The Trump-Russia investigation did not originate with Page or Papadopoulos. It originated with the Obama administration.

Has an outgoing administration ever worked to delegitimize and dislodge its successor incoming administration like this?

Colluders on the Loose

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Apparently, a number of government officials must have been in cahoots to get all their stories and agendas straight ahead of time.

President Trump: Stop The FEMA Religious Discrimination

A Hidden Scandal Worse Than Uranium One

What could be worse than giving 20 percent of our uranium to Russia?

Facebook Labels ConservativeHQ “Malicious” Blocks Pro-Trump Content
