1. DOJ Inspector General (IG), Michael Horowitz, noted in his report that it was "inconsistent with typical investigative strategy" for FBI to allow Cheryl Mills to sit in during the agency's interview of Clinton during the email probe.
2. This was especially so given that classified information traveled through Mills' personal email account. "There are serious potential ramifications when one witness attends another witness’interview," IG Horowitz wrote.
3. U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth said he was "shocked" & "dumbfounded" when he learned that FBI had granted immunity to former Clinton chief of staff Cheryl Mills during its investigation into the use of Clinton's server, according to a court transcript of his remarks.
Bob Hugins ad alleges Bob Menendez and his friend, Dr. Salomon Melgen, frequently hired underage prostitutes while vacationing in the Dominican Republic.
The next post is straight out of NYT refuting these allegations. Methinks they instead make the case.
In a notebook agents noticed Menendez’s name was listed along with his phone number. Based on a description provided by fellow agents & reliance upon their training & experience in prostitution investigations, the notebook that “looked to be a ledger of prostitution activities.”
"Menendez's lawyers even argued that having sex with underage girls overseas would hardly be a federal crime.”

Here is the letter from David Kendall, Hillary's lawyer for Benghazi and her email server investigation requesting that her security clearance be revoked as per request of his client.
Just one problem..
Both Kendall and another attorney at his firm were given security clearances by the state department to handle a thumb drive that contained about 3,000 emails – later turned over to the agency. Kendall did not say when he was given his clearance. theguardian.com/us-news/2015/a…
Kendall got a Top Secret/SCIF clearance from the Justice Department in November 2013 and a Top Secret clearance from the State Department about a year later. His Williams & Connolly law partner, Katherine Turner, also got a Top Secret clearance from State in December 2014.
2. James Baker has now admitted he received a version of the Steele dossier from left-leaning reporter David Corn of Mother Jones magazine, and then forwarded it to Strzok's team.
4. Remember that at the time, Steele had just been fired from the FBI probe for leaking to the media and wasn't supposed to be further assisting the probe. So Corn essentially acted as a back door to allow information to continue to flow.
1. "Private(s) maneuvers"
Consider this: There's a legal dispute between business partners (We're talking an $18 million dispute). Then comes along a shady character who claims he is owed $28,700.
And in order to get the $ 28,700 he files something called "involuntary bankruptcy"
2. The involuntary bankruptcy filed by this Shady character has the amazing effect of freezing the arbitration proceedings.
The timing of the involuntary bankruptcy filed by this Shady character comes 2 days prior to the deposition of the companies employees.
3. Thus a Shady street bum, with a long rap sheet effectively prevents not only arbitration but the deposition of the employees that would be crucial in the arbitration proceedings.
Now what if this Shady character worked for the guy against whom the arbitration was initiated?
Now There Is A Typhus Outbreak In Los Angeles. It's spread by fleas, yes fleas.
You get typhus when a flea carrying the bacteria bites you and flea poop gets rubbed into breaks in your skin. forbes.com/sites/brucelee…
The California Department of Public Health says “the key to preventing flea-borne typhus is to avoid direct contact with fleas,”
I didn't know people deliberately made contact with fleas. Unless of course, you're talking about the bassist for Red Hot Chili Peppers.
China Used a Tiny Chip to Infiltrate U.S. Companies. A top-secret probe, which remains open more than 3 years later, investigators determined that the chips allowed the attackers to create a stealth doorway into any network that included altered machines bloomberg.com/news/features/…
Those chips opened up a backdoor for the Chinese government to gain access into some of the US’s most sensitive infrastructures. But the companies named in the piece, Amazon and Apple, denied the validity of any of the allegations. theverge.com/2018/10/5/1794…
One chip, which was planted on servers’ motherboards assembled for a company called Elemental by a separate company called Super Micro Computer, would allow attackers a complete backdoor into these companies’ networks. A "God mode" if you will. theverge.com/2018/10/4/1793…
Your interview with ACLU's Faiz Shakir was interesting. Here is why ACLU is no longer an organization that supports individuals rights.
Faiz Shakir is a democratic political operative. He was a close aide for then Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid.
Shakir was an intermediary among the various players as Reid tried to get Sanders to drop out gracefully. Which of course failed spectacularly.
Shakir worked briefly for Sanders before seizing the chance to be political director of the ACLU.
Did you know that he was a junior research staffer for presidential hopeful John Kerry’s campaign in the fall of 2004? Shakir was involved in the fight against the “swift boating” of Kerry’s Vietnam War record. ozy.com/rising-stars/t…
“I now keep a loaded gun by my bed. Our security systems have had to be expanded. I have never felt this way in my life" Kelley Paul, Rand Paul's wife writes an open letter to Corey Booker
who encouraged supporters to “get up in the face of congresspeople” m.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/oct/…
Recall how Rand Paul was assaulted brutally and how Steve Scalise narrowly escaped an attempt on his life. Yet this corrosive hateful rhetoric has been amped up to 11.
Hate is all that is left of the Democrat Party. Searing, seething & vitriolic hate
Remember when MSNBC's Kasie Hunt said the physical assault on Rand Paul was one of her favorite stories?
The media is not only complicit, they propagate the hateful rhetoric. If a conservative news anchor said that about a liberal they'd lose their job. mediaite.com/tv/oops-kasie-…
Ex-FBI Gen Counsel James Baker offered “extremely troubling” testimony regarding FBI's handling of the Russia investigation.
Baker met weeks before 2016 election with at least one attorney from Perkins Coie, the DNCs private law firm.
Thus FBI knew the Trump Russia dossier was connected to the DNC. Recall that the dossier was used for the FISA spying on the Trump campaign.
And yet the FBI did not disclose the origins of this dossier during the FISA application in October 2016. thehill.com/hilltv/rising/…
When you piece together everything we know it is absolutely astounding how incestuous this entire process was and yet the the media put upon it its own veneer of credibility.
Glenn Simpson of Fusion GPS was hired by DNC through Perkins Coie. He in turn hired Christopher Steele.
Monica McLean, retired FBI agent & Christine Blasey Ford's close friend was present at her hearing.
Noteworthy that McLean left FBI suddenly, becoming an independent consultant the year Trump was elected.
McLean was coached by Ford on passing polygraph. theconservativetreehouse.com
Great reportage by @themarketswork
"Ford lived with Mclean, who I had understood to be her life-long best friend. During that time, McLean was interviewing for jobs with FBI. I witnessed Ford help McLean prepare for a potential polygraph exam." m.theepochtimes.com/the-unexpected…
First article brought to you by @TheLastRefuge2
Isn't it amazing how mainstream media is essentially the slow dribbling of useless and somewhat confabulatory reportage, whilst independent journalists do absolutely spectacular work?
2. "Her husband couldn’t answer the calls that were blowing up his phone; by the time they reached home, a crowd of reporters was waiting"
She's not upset her confidentiality was breached?
The media that figured out her name address & phone number can't figure out who leaked?
3. "Quietly, she garnered a reputation for her research on depression, anxiety and resilience after trauma, telling almost no one what she herself had endured"
What research on depression? She was teaching biostatistics and working in clinical trials developing protocols
Isn't that something?
IP Address of Person Who Doxxed GOP Senators Points to Maxine Waters's Office
The private information on the Republican Senators came from a computer from the House of Representatives. thegatewaypundit.com/2018/09/breaki… via @gatewaypundit
Mike Tokes discusses matching the IP addresses found on the Wikipedia posting to that of the House of Representatives. They were able to trace it back to Kathleen Sengstock in Maxine Waters' office
Great sleuthing by @MikeTokes here is the entire thread.
Hope there's an immediate inquiry into this incredibly reckless endangerment of people's lives while the left calls for people to confront politicians.
Remember Steve scalise and Rand Paul.
1. Democrats depravity and the ensuing inveigling to cover up their crimes has reached mythical proportions.
Keith Ellison, Dem nominee for AG of MN is being investigated for abuse allegations against ex-girlfriend Karen Monahan. time.com/5406033/keith-…
2. Originally the investigation was being handled by the MN state party’s attorney.
Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party Chairman Ken Martin decided to hire an external investigator to ensure “that it wouldn’t be colored by people with associations with the party.”
3. So they hired Susan Ellingstad to give a semblance of impartiality.
The problem is Ellingstad is a partner at a Minneapolis law firm with state party attorney Charlie Nauen.
Avenatti locks account after admitting Kavanaugh accuser might not come forward.
Like herpes, his appearance bespeaks to previous indiscretions. He appears at the most inopportune times causing significant embarrassment and at times a lot of burning. breitbart.com/big-government…
There are 2 noteworthy things about the 4chan story (if true) 1. Avenatti has a direct conduit to CNN. They'll buy whatever feces herpes lawyer is peddling. 2. There's an established GoFundMe protocol for payouts.
The prank itself is also very funny. But lady Karma is funnier.
I agree. But look at Michael Bromwich's ability to confuse and conflate. That letter is suggestive without stating outright that Christine Blasey Ford is looking for a way out of this testimony. Expect new demands on a daily basis. Bromwich is good at this. That's why he's here.
Even Fox news has started preparing Rod Rosenstein's epitaph.
There's a direct quote from Sarah Sanders specifically stating that Trump will meet with Rosenstein on Thursday.
Why would they meet on Thursday if Rosenstein is going to be fired?
Isn't it most curious that last week, two of the toxic triplets, Ted Lieu and Eric Swalwell specifically warned against firing Jeff sessions?
Today unctuous triplet number three warned against firing Rosenstein.
It's like catching Trump's laser pointer.
Rod Rosenstein hasn't been fired. But that's no reason to not be incendiary. And how does Rosenstein's departure jeopardize Mueller's probe?
But facts... They're just unnecessary and cumbersome, not to mention inconvenient.
1. By now everyone has seen the discrepancy in the font. 2. She was vacationing in the mid Atlantic. Presumably driving cross-country or taking the train, because by her admission, she can't fly. 3. She wrote this letter whilst on vacation, Washington DC is in the mid Atlantic...
4. She's a psychologist? Wouldn't she know the difference between medical treatment and mental health/psychological counseling?
5. One has to wonder if this letter was physically delivered, mailed or emailed. Because only the first two could have ANY explanation for the font discrepancy. 6. Who says they're vacationing in the mid Atlantic? Or North West or any region?
That headline is misleading. There's no acceptance. Just a lot more delay tactic
What is very curious is that Ford's lawyer Debra Katz cc's McCabe's lawyer.
Can we at least call this openly political now that Andrew McCabe's lawyer is involved?
Rod Rosentein discussed secretly reporting President Donald Trump, and also talked about getting members of Trump's cabinet to invoke the Constitution to declare him unfit to remain as president. cnbc.com/2018/09/21/ros…
The story about uses the word reporting as well as recording several times. Rosenstein told McCabe he could recruit members of cabinet to invoke 25th Amendment. Rosenstein believed he would be able to convince Jeff Sessions & John Kelly to sign on. abcnews.go.com/Politics/rosen…
Rod Rosenstein denies the reporting, which incidentally was done by New York Times, who have less credibility than a New York Street Peddler selling Rolex watches.
The timing of the story is extremely interesting as well. If there was an opportune time to sow discord, it's now.
Christine Blasey Ford's friend: "I had no idea that I would now have to go to the specifics and defend it before 50 cable channels and have my face spread all over MSNBC news and Twitter."
But in a Facebook post she said it DID happen, she deleted that post (See below)
The only thing absolutely certain about this whole saga is that there is an overarching plan to spread uncertainty.
The invisible hands controlling the marionettes seem to be losing grip of the strings just as its players lose their grip on reality.
The inexorable march of time has the salutary effect of allowing us to see in slow motion the wheels fall off this clown car careening towards self inflicted oblivion.
Doing nothing sometimes is truly the most forceful action when dealing with vulpine imbeciles.
