Agent Violates Many Federal Regulations,
Escapes DOJ Prosecution 
{ } ~ The Department of Justice says it will not prosecute an FBI special agent after an investigation determined that the agent...  violated several standards of FBI policy and conduct, including lying to the bureau and with holding “information related to a state criminal investigation from a local police department.” The dense, one-page release by the FBI Office of the Inspector General did not name the special agent, but the report itemized at least eight significant violations. Many of the allegations substantiated by the OIG investigation dealt with the agent’s interactions with a confidential human source (CHS). The OIG investigation substantiated the allegations that the special agent received gifts, including money and items of value from the CHS, in violation of federal regulations regarding standards of conduct for federal employees and FBI policy. The OIG further found that the SA: continued to use the CHS after the CHS had been deactivated by the FBI; protected the CHS and the CHS’s illegal business; misused FBI assets for personal gain; and committed computer security violations, all in violation of federal regulations and FBI policy. The OIG also found that the SA improperly withheld information related to a state criminal investigation from a local police department, and provided false information to the police department regarding the CHS’s status as an FBI CHS, which actions were wholly inconsistent with the SA’s obligations as a federal law enforcement officer. The OIG also found that the SA lacked candor with the FBI and the OIG, in violation of FBI policy...
The Latest Disgusting Anti-Cop Move By Black Lives Matter
by Warner Todd Huston and Jeffdunetz
{ } ~ The thugs of Black Lives Matter crashed the wedding of a Sacramento, California, African-American policeman... and paraded about calling him a murderer in front of his friends and family. The police officer Terrence Mercadal, whose wedding was destroyed by the protesters has been named by BLM as being involved in the shooting of Stephon Clark, but the Sacramento Police  Department has not named him. Clark, 22, died on March 18 after being shot by a police officer who responded to a call about someone breaking into cars. Police arrived at the scene and said they believed Clark was the suspect. Clark ran when a police helicopter responded, then failed to obey officers’ orders. Police officers said they thought Clark was holding a gun when he moved toward them, but he was found holding only a cellphone... 
The DNC Leaks and Crossfire Hurricane: A Timeline
by Leo Goldstein
{ } ~ The media's and the dumycrats-Democratic Party's obsession with the Trump-Russia conspiracy theory originates from events of April-June 2016... Media operations by the dumycrats-Democratic Party and its media echo chamber have distorted not only the information about the relevant events, but even the background political picture of April 2016. The dumycrats-DNC and liar-Hillary constructed a conspiracy theory in which Putin ordered the hacking of the dumycrats-DNC network and subsequent mass distribution of the exfiltrated documents to help Trump beat liar-Hillary. Such actions were against Russian interests and very unusual for Russian intelligence.  Driven by their conspiracy theory, liar-Hillary indulged in anti-Russian rhetoric, and the liar-nObama administration drove relations with Russia to the worst point in the last 40 years. Since the elections, the dumycrats-Democrats, the hard left, and the institutions owned by them have been pushing Trump to aggravate the conflict, started by liar-nObama and liar-Hillary.  But let's proceed in chronological order...
dummycrats-Democrats' New Anti-Kavanaugh
Smear Strategy: Guilt By Association 
by Guy Benson
{ } ~ They've got nothing of substance on him, and they know it -- so we now appear to be entering another round of impotent foot-stomping in the Kavanaugh confirmation drama... Having failed to find any coherent line of argument against Kavanaugh's qualifications for the position, and after test-driving some school yard taunts and shouting about  complicity in "evil" or whatever, the Left is moving on to a furrowed-brow fishing expedition over Kavanaugh's ties to a judge on a different circuit court of appeals who retired amid allegations of sexual harassment. Unless they're engaged in an elaborate head fake and have some heretofore unseen bombshell to drop during the confirmation hearings, Senate dummycrats-Democrats look like they're resorting to exceptionally thin gruel with this: Senate dummycrats-Democrats are gearing up to press Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on his decades-long relationship with former Judge Alex Kozinski, who was forced into retirement last year by a mounting sexual harassment scandal. It’s not just what, if anything, Kavanaugh saw during his time as a Kozinski clerk in the early 1990s that’s on dummycrats- Democratic minds. They also want to know how President Donald Trump’s high court pick would address the judiciary’s ongoing internal reckoning with sexual misconduct that was sparked by Kozinski — one of Kavanaugh’s early mentors who introduced the younger appellate court judge at his Senate confirmation hearing in 2006...
Paul Manafort's lawyers hit Rick Gates
for stealing, leading 'secret life'
by Melissa Quinn
{ } ~ Lawyers for Paul Manafort took aim at his former business partner Rick Gates on Tuesday... painting Gates as a liar who stole money from his former boss and forcing him to acknowledge publicly he had an extramarital affair roughly 10 years ago. After facing several hours of questioning from prosecutor Greg Andres, Gates, considered to be the star witness, underwent cross-examination from Manafort’s defense lawyer, Kevin Downing, who questioned why the jury of six men and six women should take his word in detailing Manafort’s alleged criminal activity. Downing announced to the courtroom there was “another Richard Gates, isn't that right?" “A secret Richard Gates?” he continued. The line of questioning prompted Gates to admit to having “another relationship” roughly a decade ago. During the extramarital affair, Gates said he had an apartment in London he used for trysts and traveled during the course of the relationship. The revelation was one of several made during the course of Gates’ testimony, during which he has admitted to falsifying documents to help Manafort secure bank loans, stealing money from Manafort, and committing other crimes with his former business associate...


Trump Sabotaged by His Own Lawyer 
by Judge Andrew P. Napolitano

{ } ~ In the past week, former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, now the chief lawyer and principal spokesman for President Donald Trump's legal team, has offered arguments more harmful to Trump than helpful.

In a series of combative, disjointed and logically challenged television rants, Giuliani has essentially argued that Trump did not engage in any conspiracy with the Russians for them to provide help to his campaign and that even if he did, it wasn't criminal.

In making this argument, Giuliani has played a word game in which he has effectively created a straw man and then denied it's real because it's made of straw. He has done this by avoiding the use of the word "conspiracy," substituting the word "collusion" and then arguing that there is no crime of collusion and therefore Trump did not commit a crime. This is an argument based on a false premise.

Here is the back story.

When the FBI received word from a former British intelligence source in June 2016 that Russian intelligence agents might be providing assistance to the Trump campaign, it began an investigation of the campaign. After the British source gave the FBI a dossier that alleged salacious behavior by Trump in Moscow in 2013 — behavior he has denied — and purported to corroborate awareness of the behavior by Russian government officials, the FBI used the dossier as part of a presentation to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, which authorized surveillance of the Trump campaign.

Because one of the Trump campaign officials under surveillance, Jeff Sessions, became the attorney general in January 2017, he recused himself from the investigation, and the Department of Justice appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller special counsel to head the investigation independent of the attorney general.

Mueller discovered dozens of contacts between the Trump campaign and Russians, many of them Russian intelligence agents. Mueller's grand juries have indicted over two dozen Russians, some Russian intelligence officials, for interfering with the 2016 presidential campaign, and President Trump imposed heavy financial sanctions on many of them.

Mueller also discovered the existence of a June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower in New York between high-ranking campaign officials and Russian agents. When The New York Times revealed the meeting a year after it took place, the Trump folks claimed that the meeting was about the difficulties Americans were having adopting Russian children. Then emails emerged showing an offer to Donald Trump Jr. by a Russian agent to meet and provide help to the campaign in the form of dirt on liar-Hillary Clinton. This was dirt allegedly obtained by hacking into her campaign's computers. This was an offer that Don Jr. accepted.

The president has denied any knowledge of this meeting until it emerged publicly in July 2017, and Don Jr. has testified under oath before Congress that his father did not know of the meeting until the media revealed it. But last week, Michael Cohen, a lawyer who represented Trump for the 10 years preceding his inauguration and whose office was three doors down a hall from Trump's, told Mueller and the media that Trump knew of the meeting beforehand and encouraged his campaign folks, including Don Jr., to make it happen.

Is any of this unlawful? That question brings us back to Giuliani.

In Giuliani's zeal to represent his client, he has unleashed vitriolic verbal attacks on the credibility, morality and ethics of Cohen, using words and innuendo too lurid to recount here. Yet the ferocity of Giuliani's attacks is now a problem for Trump. That's because the rules of legal ethics prohibit lawyers from attacking the credibility of likely witnesses against their clients outside the courtroom. This is especially so for government witnesses.

Government witnesses meet with prosecutors and testify before grand juries in secret. When defense counsel attacks those witnesses in public, the government often views that as witness tampering — behavior that gives witnesses pause before testifying by freighting or threatening them. When defense counsel did that to government witnesses in cases that a young Rudy Giuliani prosecuted, he persuaded judges to remove those lawyers from the cases. That is the danger that confronts Giuliani and Trump now.

If Mueller has enough ammo all of it from Giuliani's mouth to persuade a federal judge to bar Giuliani from continuing to represent Trump — and it appears he does — whoever replaces Giuliani will need to review and understand more than 1.4 million documents that the White House and the Trump campaign have surrendered to Mueller. That will be an enormous burden and a major financial, political and legal setback for Trump.

The case Mueller is investigating is not about collusion. Collusion is a Hollywood and a media word. The case is about conspiracy — and Giuliani knows this. A conspiracy is an agreement to commit a crime as a result of which at least one of those who agreed took at least one material step in furtherance of the agreement. Stated differently, Mueller is investigating an alleged agreement between Russian intelligence agents and Trump campaign officials for the Russians to provide dirt on liar-Clinton to the campaign. The dirt need not have arrived — and whatever may have arrived need not have been dirt — for the crime of conspiracy to have taken place, because the essence of conspiracy is an agreement, whether consummated or not.

In one of his more bizarre rants on Fox News Channel early this week, Giuliani said there may have been a meeting at Trump Tower to plan the meeting with the Russians. Why would he reveal this? Because Mueller knows it and will reveal it. And both know that such a meeting would be the beginning of an agreement, as well as a material step in furtherance of it.

Sometimes even famous lawyers do more harm than good to their clients.

LOOK: Obama Declared National Emergencies 13 Times Including Swine Flu, Iran And Flint Water Crisis

President Trump is expected to declare a State of Emergency at the US southern border on Friday.

Declaring the immigration crisis a national emergency is overdue. Presidents have declared national emergencies for nearly 50 years.


Barack Obama declared 13 national emergencies, 11 of which continue to this day. The Obama emergencies included the Swine Flu, Flint water crisis and Iran.

The Conservative Tribune reported:

As it turns out, there are currently 31 ongoing national emergencies over which the president wields certain authorities, the first of which has been in existence since 1979 and is one of only two emergencies declared by Carter.

There were a total of six national emergencies during former President Ronald Reagan’s tenure, as well as four more during the administration of former President George H.W. Bush, all of which have ended.

Former President Bill Clinton declared 17 national emergencies — six of which remain in effect — while former President George W. Bush declared 12 national emergencies, of which 10 remain ongoing.

Then we get to former President Barack Obama, who declared 13 national emergencies, 11 of which continue to this day. Thus far, President Trump has declared three active and ongoing national emergencies.
