During liar-Clinton Investigation – Full 568 page pdf
by sundance
{ theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ The 18-month Inspector General review of the DOJ/FBI investigation of the liar-Hillary Clinton email has been released... This IG inquiry is specifically looking into whether the FBI investigation was corrupted by political influence in their determination of the liar-Clinton outcome. The IG report provides background on the overall issues, the potential crimes; the subsequent coverup; and the corruption that infested the 2016 Department of Justice and the FBI. Looks like no charge will be given.   https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/06/14/here-it-is-inspecto...

CHAIRMAN GOWDY STATEMENT ON INSPECTOR GENERAL REPORT
by oversight.house.gov 
{ oversight.house.gov } ~ House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy released the following statement... after the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Office of Inspector General (OIG) released a report on FBI and DOJ actions in advance of the 2016 election. “I am alarmed, angered, and deeply disappointed by the Inspector General’s finding of numerous failures by DOJ and FBI in investigating potential Espionage Act violations by former Secretary of State liar-Hillary Clinton. This report confirms investigative decisions made by the FBI during the pendency of this investigation were unprecedented and deviated from traditional investigative procedures in favor of a much more permissive and voluntary approach. This is not the way normal investigations are run. The investigation was mishandled. The investigatory conclusions were reached before the end of the witness interviews. The July 5th press conference marked a serious violation of policy and process. And the letters to Congress in the fall of 2016 were both delayed in substance and unnecessary in form...

Washington braces for inspector general report on Clinton's emails
by Kelly Cohen 
{ washingtonexaminer.com } ~ The Justice Department’s inspector general on Thursday will release the results of its investigation into claims that the FBI failed to follow department protocols... when investigating liar-Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, which could give Trump more ammo in his nonstop public fight against former FBI Director James Comey. But it might also fuel Democratic arguments that the FBI gave Trump an unfair edge by casting doubt on liar-Clinton's trustworthiness just days before the election. The investigation was launched in January 2017 by Michael Horowitz, an appointee of President Barack liar-nObama. He conducted a noncriminal review, which means he could not compel former Justice Department or FBI employees or any other witnesses to testify...

Justice Dept. IG report released on FBI's handling 
of liar-Clinton email case; Comey found 'insubordinate' 
by Alex Pappas
{ foxnews.com } ~ Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz on Thursday released his long-awaited report detailing his review of the FBI and DOJ’s liar-Hillary Clinton investigation... during the 2016 presidential election, finding then-FBI Director James Comey to be “insubordinate” with his public statements on the investigation. For more than a year, Horowitz has been reviewing the agencies’ actions related to its investigation into liar-Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state. Horowitz’s investigation looked at a variety of allegations, including whether it was improper for Comey to make a public announcement about not recommending prosecution over the liar-Clinton email arrangement. "We found that it was extraordinary and insubordinate for Comey to conceal his intentions from his superiors, the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General, for the admitted purpose of preventing them from telling him not to make the statement, and to instruct his subordinates in the FBI to do the same," Horowitz’s report says...   http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/06/14/justice-dept-ig-report-r...

Name Unidentified Persons in Manafort Indictment 
by Randy DeSoto
{ westernjournal.com } ~ A federal judge ruled on Tuesday that special counsel Robert Mueller must identify unnamed individuals... in an indictment against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. Last week, Mueller indicted Manafort and his former aide, Konstantin Kilimnik, on a series of charges related to lobbying work they did on behalf of Ukraine, The Hill reported. U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson ordered Mueller’s team to turn over the names of several individuals and organizations referred to but not named in the indictment by Friday...

Behind Trump's Exasperation 
by Pat Buchanan
{ townhall.com } ~ At the G-7 summit in Canada, President Donald Trump described America as "the piggy bank that everybody is robbing."

After he left Quebec, his director of Trade and Industrial Policy, Peter Navarro, added a few parting words for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau:

"There's a special place in hell for any foreign leader that engages in bad faith diplomacy with President Donald J. Trump and then tries to stab him in the back on the way out the door. ... And that's ... what weak, dishonest Justin Trudeau did. And that comes right from Air Force One."

In Singapore, Trump tweeted more about that piggy bank.

"Why should I, as President of the United States, allow countries to continue to make Massive Trade Surpluses, as they have for decades ... while the U.S. pays close to the entire cost of NATO-protecting many of these same countries that rip us off on Trade?"

To understand what drives Trump, and explains his exasperation and anger, these remarks are a good place to begin.

Our elites see America as an "indispensable nation," the premier world power whose ordained duty it is to defend democracy, stand up to dictators and aggressors, and uphold a liberal world order.

They see U.S. wealth and power as splendid tools that fate has given them to shape the future of the planet.

Trump sees America as a nation being milked by allies who free ride on our defense effort, as they engage in trade practices that prosper their own peoples at America's expense.

Where our elites live to play masters of the universe, Trump sees a world laughing behind America's back, while allies exploit our magnanimity and idealism for their own national ends.

The numbers are impossible to refute and hard to explain.

Last year, the EU had a $151 billion trade surplus with the U.S. China ran a $376 billion trade surplus with the U.S., the largest in history. The world sold us $796 billion more in goods than we sold to the world.

A nation that spends more than it takes in from taxes, and consumes more of the world's goods than it produces itself for export, year in and year out, is a nation on the way down.

We are emulating our British cousins of the 19th century.

Trump understands that this situation is not sustainable. His strength is that the people are still with him on putting America first.

Yet he faces some serious obstacles.

What is his strategy for turning a $796 billion trade deficit into a surplus? Is he prepared to impose the tariffs and import restrictions that would be required to turn America from the greatest trade-deficit nation in history to a trade-surplus nation, as we were up until the mid-1970s?

Americans are indeed carrying the lion's share of the load of the defense of the West, and of fighting the terrorists and radical Islamists of the Middle East, and of protecting South Korea and Japan.

But if our NATO and Asian allies refuse to make the increases in defense he demands, is Trump really willing to cancel our treaty commitments, walk away from our war guarantees, and let these nations face Russia and China on their own? Could he cut that umbilical cord?

Ike's Secretary of State John Foster Dulles spoke of conducting an "agonizing reappraisal" of U.S. commitments to defend NATO allies, if they did not contribute more money and troops.

Dulles died in 1959, and that reappraisal, threatened 60 years ago, never happened. Indeed, when the Cold War ended, out NATO allies cut defense spending again. Yet we are still subsidizing NATO in Europe and have taken on new allies since the Soviet Empire fell.

If Europe refuses to invest the money in defense Trump demands, or accept the tariffs America needs to reduce and erase its trade deficits, what does he do? Is he prepared to shut U.S. bases and pull U.S. troops out of the Baltic republics, Poland and Germany, and let the Europeans face Vladimir Putin and Russia themselves?

This is not an academic question. For the crunch that was inevitable when Trump was elected seems at hand.

He promised to negotiate with Putin and improve relations with Russia. He promised to force our NATO allies to undertake more of their own defense. He pledged to get out and stay out of Mideast wars, and begin to slash the trade deficits that we have run with the world.

And that's what America voted for.

Now, after 500 days, he faces formidable opposition to these defining goals of his campaign, even within his own party.

Putin remains a pariah on Capitol Hill. Our allies are rejecting the tariffs Trump has imposed and threatening retaliation. Free trade Republicans reject tariffs that might raise the cost of the items U.S. companies makes abroad and then ships back to the United States.

The decisive battles between Trumpian nationalism and globalism remain ahead of us. Trump's critical tests have yet to come.

And our exasperated president senses this.

ALERT ALERT

Ignored By Media: Trump Is Using Obama’s National Emergency On Mexican Cartels To Build The Border Wall

President Trump declared a State of Emergency at the US southern border on Friday.

Declaring the immigration crisis a national emergency was 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.

And Obama declared the Mexican drug cartels a national emergency in 2011.

Congress believes President Trump has $21 billion in unobligated military construction funding money available for the border wall with Mexico.

Now this was mostly ignored by the liberal media. President Trump is using Barack Obama’s previous national emergency on Mexican drug cartels to get funding for the border wall.

Via Law and Crime:

As it turns out, back in 2011 then-President Barack Obama issued an executive order “blocking property of transnational criminal organizations organizations.” Obama cited his authority as granted through the Constitution to invoke the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. 1701, and the National Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. 1601. The latter is the same legislation that Trump is citing to get funding for the wall to achieve his immigration reform goals. That executive order targeted a number of criminal organizations, including the Mexican Los Zetas cartel, an ally of the MS-13 gang President Trump has regularly called out as a danger to Americans.

“Drugs, gangs and people — an invasion,” Trump said on Friday. “We have an invasion coming into this country.”

Trump all but thanked his predecessor on Friday.

“We may be using one of the national emergencies that [Obama] signed having to do with criminal cartels… it’s a very good national emergency… we’re going to be using parts of it,” he said.
