Welcome to RichTAkes! on Obstructing Justice.
Since Hillary lost the election and Trump won, Democrats everywhere have been determined to undermine his Presidency at every turn. So far, they’ve been very successful by pressuring Jeff Sessions to recuse himself from anything related to Russia, and doing the same to Nunez in the House. Neither was justified, I don’t recall Holder or Lynch recusing themselves over issues where there were obvious conflicts of interest. Holder was held in contempt of the House over Fast and Furious testimony, and Lynch met with Slick Willy Clinton in a plane which no one was supposed to know about on a Saturday last summer, and on the following Monday, FBI Director Comey held a presser in which he laid out a case for prosecution of Hillary over her illegal email server, and then said that no prosecutor would proceed.
That claim was a complete hoax from Day One.
Trump’s firing of James Comey was completely justified, even if he totally screwed up the messaging. FBI Directors do not hold Press Conferences about recommending a prosecution or not to the DOJ, and in all fairness, AG Loretta Lynch put Comey in that position by publicly stating that she would defer to his recommendation, (after meeting with Willy on the tarmac) and we all knew that the fix was in. Comey’s ridiculous whiney testimony to the committee the week before his dismissal was reason enough. “What should I do? Reveal, or conceal” Really Comey? It’s not fair is it? I bet you “know your rights” too, don’t cha? I hear crap like that from my kids, I certainly don’t need to hear it from the FBI Director. You’re Fired!
The Russian collusion story line doesn’t seem to be getting much traction, so now the latest Democrat talking point says “Obstruction of Justice” Really? There was an FBI counter-intelligence investigation into the Russian collusion, coordination, or whatever going on at the FBI when Comey was dismissed, and that investigation was not impeded at all. A counter-intelligence investigation is not the same as a criminal investigation. Comey was not “leading” that investigation anymore than he was leading any of the other thousand or more current ongoing FBI investigations at any given time. The counter-intelligence investigation would ask if the Russians “hacked” the election, what did they do, how did they do it, what effects did it have, and how can we take measures to impede those efforts in the future. The truth is, the Russians did not “hack” the election by any reasonable standard.
We now have a new Deputy Attorney General, and he took about three days in office to appoint a “Special Counsel” to investigate all of this nonsense, The problem is, a Special Counsel has all of the same powers as an Independent Prosecutor, even if there is no evidence of any underlying crime. So far there is not any evidence of coordination or collusion, let alone a crime having been committed.
This will take years to complete, and months to even start up at a cost of millions of dollars just for the openers. All because Hillary wanted to blame the Russians for her loss in November.
They only admitted that they were violating the law after the election.
He had no evidence of any crime.
A supporter of the American Communist Party at the height of the Cold War, Brennan brought into the CIA a raft of subversives and gave them plum positions from which to gather and leak political espionage on Trump.
‘Shattered’ Revelation: Clinton Campaign Hatched Russian Hacking Narrative 24 Hours After Hillary’s Loss
It simply can not be Hillary’s fault. She still has not owned up to her loss.
I had no idea that Jarrett is a lawyer. He is, and has some interesting observations about the alleged Comey memo which has yet to be seen.
DEFCON 1 is all-out WAR.
The “Lion of the Senate” actually did attempt to conspire with the Russian Soviets in an attempt to damage Carter in 1979 and later Reagan in 1984 by proposing a plan via the KGB to Brezhnev and later to Yuri Andropov. Both seemingly passed on the schemes.
Kennedy suggested that Walter Cronkite, Barbara Walters and Elton Raul, the president of the board of directors for ABC, be considered for the interviews with Andropov in Moscow. He also asked the KGB to consider having “lower level Soviet officials, particularly the military” take part in television interviews inside the U.S. where they could convey peaceful intentions.
Just another communist traitor, along with Kerry and Obama. From 2006.
Ted Kennedy is seen writing first to Mr. Brezhnev attempting to undermine Jimmy Carter while assisting the Soviets in their Afghan adventure as well as feathering his own political nest, while his second letter to the blood drenched former head of the KGB is one expressing animosity and dissatisfaction with a sitting President while aiding them in their propaganda war.
Clickbait pays as the Washington Post and NY Times have discovered
Just one of many acts of Treason by Obama, Hillary and Kerry.
Obama portrayed the seven men he freed as “civilians.” The senior official described them as businessmen convicted of or awaiting trial for mere “sanctions-related offenses, violations of the trade embargo.”
In reality, some of them were accused by Obama’s own Justice Department of posing threats to national security. Three allegedly were part of an illegal procurement network supplying Iran with U.S.-made microelectronics with applications in surface-to-air and cruise missiles like the kind Tehran test-fired recently, prompting a still-escalating exchange of threats with the Trump administration. Another was serving an eight-year sentence for conspiring to supply Iran with satellite technology and hardware. As part of the deal, U.S. officials even dropped their demand for $10 million that a jury said the aerospace engineer illegally received from Tehran.
And in a series of unpublicized court filings, the Justice Department dropped charges and international arrest warrants against 14 other men, all of them fugitives. The administration didn’t disclose their names or what they were accused of doing, noting only in an unattributed, 152-word statement about the swap that the U.S. “also removed any Interpol red notices and dismissed any charges against 14 Iranians for whom it was assessed that extradition requests were unlikely to be successful.”
Three of the fugitives allegedly sought to lease Boeing aircraft for an Iranian airline that authorities say had supported Hezbollah, the U.S.-designated terrorist organization. A fourth, Behrouz Dolatzadeh, was charged with conspiring to buy thousands of U.S.-made assault rifles and illegally import them into Iran.
A fifth, Amin Ravan, was charged with smuggling U.S. military antennas to Hong Kong and Singapore for use in Iran. U.S. authorities also believe he was part of a procurement network providing Iran with high-tech components for an especially deadly type of IED used by Shiite militias to kill hundreds of American troops in Iraq.
The biggest fish, though, was Seyed Abolfazl Shahab Jamili, who had been charged with being part of a conspiracy that from 2005 to 2012 procured thousands of parts with nuclear applications for Iran via China. That included hundreds of U.S.-made sensors for the uranium enrichment centrifuges in Iran whose progress had prompted the nuclear deal talks in the first place.
Here is the classified intel that Trump shared with Russians in a White House meeting. It was all over the news in March.
The bigger question is, who is doing the leaking from the WH meeting?
We know that multiple actual felonies were committed that should be investigated.
The RINO establishment is more of a threat than Trump.
After twenty years of utopian socialism at what was once the richest country in South America, it’s now come to this.
So far, they have only used tear gas, which has been banned in warfare since the end of WWI.
I’m completely in favor of this. No fishing of any sort restrictions in the ocean is ridiculous. There are more areas off-limits than you might expect. Obama put additional millions of square miles off limits to all fishing.
I once hopped a fishing charter boat in Key West, we were fishing four lines with single lures. Yet we couldn’t cross some invisible line where fishing of all sorts were off-limits.
Lies, damn lies, and statistics. Global warming update.
Our overly-generous welfare programs, which sky-rocketed during the Obama years have no doubt contributed to this trend.
Remember that whenever anyone touts a paper as being “peer-reviewed” or not, that “peer-review” is simply an academic circle-jerk, and the “peers” are often the jerks.
Vote Fraud update. Commission to compare various federal and state databases in a bi-partisan effort to gauge the extent of voter fraud for the first time ever.
Now democrats are bemoaning lack of proper ID in state party chair race. It’s delicious, isn’t it?
Those who embrace small government, freedom, and life have two choices: accept what the GOP does as being the lesser-of-two-evils or join us in doing something about it.
