Did Fake Document Inspire Comey Decision?

The FBI received a purported Russian intelligence report that may have convinced former FBI Director James Comey to prematurely shut down an investigation into whether Hillary Clinton intentionally revealed classified information through her use of a private email server.

According to the FBI’s own assessment, however, the document was bad intelligence and may have been sent to the FBI to delibarately confuse the Bureau.

The report, given to the FBI by a source March 2016, detailed a supposed email in which then-Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch assured a Clinton campaign aide that investigators wouldn’t look too deeply into the matter, the Washington Post reported Wednesday.

Seth Rich Family Wants Police To Go Public With Info

The family of deceased Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer Seth Rich is calling on local police to publicize details of the murder investigation, according to the Daily Mail.

‘The family has full confidence in the Metropolitan Police Department’s ability to proceed with this investigation,” said Brad Bauman, a spokesperson for the family, the Daily Mail reports. “But given the large amount of hearsay and conspiracy theories surrounding the case, maybe it’s time for the police department to be more forthcoming with information regarding the investigation and to update the people of Washington, D.C. on the status of the case.”

Rich, 27, was the voter expansion data director at the DNC, according to Roll Call, and had been employed for two years. Rich also worked on a computer application to help voters locate polling stations, and had just accepted a job with Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

Wasserman Schultz Interfered With Criminal Probe Of Her IT Staffer, Promising ‘Consequences’ For Capitol Police

Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz attempted to interfere with an ongoing criminal investigation into cybersecurity breaches by her top technology aide, using her position on the U.S. Capitol Police’s appropriations committee to threaten its police chief earlier in May with “consequences” if he didn’t relinquish a piece of technology equipment that is evidence in the case.

“My understanding is the the Capitol Police is not able to confiscate Members’ equipment when the Member is not under investigation,” Wasserman Schultz said in a May 18 budget hearing of the House Appropriations Committee’s Legislative Branch Subcommittee.

“We can’t return the equipment,” Police Chief Matthew R. Verderosa told the Florida Democrat. The Capitol Police and outside agencies are pursuing Imran Awan, who has run technology for the Florida lawmaker since 2005 and was banned from the House network in February under suspicion of major network breaches.

“I think you’re violating the rules when you conduct your business that way and you should expect that there will be consequences,” Wasserman Schultz said.

Democrats’ 2018 Election Prospects — Trump Bashing Helps Them

A little unifying hatred goes a long way at the ballot box.

Conventional wisdom says that Democrats are in serious trouble. In the aftermath of Hillary Clinton’s defeat, the narrative goes something like this: Democrats are internally divided, with the far-left wing led by Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren battling it out with the establishment Clinton wing of the party; blue-dog Democrats have been wiped out, with pro-choice radicals in full command; intersectionality-focused Democrats are warring with class-warfare Democrats.

The Democrats, this logic continues, must offer more than merely being anti-Trump. They are hysterically anti-Trump, in fact, to the point that they have harmed their own credibility. They cannot hope to win seats simply by shouting “Impeachment!” and then waiting for political manna to fall from heaven. They must make proposals. They must offer a firm, ideologically grounded opposition.

According to this narrative, Republicans have the upper hand in 2020. All they have to do is let President Trump drive the Left batty, pass a few pieces of relatively minor legislation, and watch Democrats implode. Democrats won’t be able to win just by trotting out Maxine Waters and Al Franken. They’ll have to do something to put the pieces back together.

There’s only one problem with this narrative: It isn’t true.

Bar Manager: Cops Never Talked With Staff About Night Seth Rich Was Murdered

A manager of the Washington, D.C., bar where Democratic National Committee worker Seth Rich was last spotted hours before he was shot and killed last summer told WND that D.C. police officers never interviewed the bar’s staff or requested any evidence from the bar, including the bar’s surveillance video from that night, as part of an investigation into Rich’s murder.

The revelation backs up a claim made by a private investigator who worked on the case who said D.C. police were told to “stand down” on the investigation.

WND also can report that the investigator recently was ordered to “cease and desist” his work on the murder case.

“The police never asked for the surveillance video from that night,” a manager of Lou’s City Bar told WND.

His name is being withheld for this story.

He said the bar’s surveillance video runs in a cycle of 30 days and that, by now, any footage that may have existed of Rich the last night he was seen alive has been taped over.

Furthermore, the manager said police never asked for any other kind of evidence from the bar such as Rich’s bar receipt from that night. The manager did note he wasn’t sure if Rich paid using a credit card or cash.

John Podesta Unloads On Trump

The former chairman of Hillary Clinton’s campaign says the president is ‘absolutely crazy’ and Republicans are stuck to him like ‘Velcro.’

Donald Trump is “unfit for office,” a president whose actions are often “absolutely crazy” and whose White House has “a complete disregard for the truth.” His firing of James Comey, the FBI director overseeing an investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 campaign and whether Trump’s advisers colluded with it, amounts to “close to an obstruction case” against the president.

But, says John Podesta—the sharp-tongued campaign chairman for Hillary Clinton whose 60,000 hacked emails are at the heart of that FBI investigation into the team of the man who defeated them—don’t expect impeachment proceedings anytime soon.

Republican congressional leaders Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell have chosen to “Velcro their own political fate” to Trump’s and won’t pursue allegations against the president of their own party unless forced to do so by a 2018 midterm election debacle or further revelations. “It is clear to me that Republicans on Capitol Hill are not going to begin to turn on him at this point,” Podesta says.

There’s Something Fundamentally Wrong With Liberals

 

That liberals are hypocrites is not news. Just take a look at the net worth of any Democratic Party leader who routinely rails against the “1 percent.” But in the age of Trump, where the hatred that normally drives what we’re told is the “tolerant” left has been turned up to 11. All standards have gone out the window; no hypocrisy is too great, no conspiracy theory too insane for someone on the left to advance it and its drone army to believe.

It must be easy to be a liberal in 2017. You don’t have to think for yourself. You don’t have to prove anything. And your life can swirl in a bubble where you’ll never have anything you say challenged in a serious way. Liberals have become the bad guy in Lethal Weapon 2 – their membership in the progressive club grants them a sort of diplomatic immunity from reality….continue reading
