OK Clapper and Brennan Lied To Congress – Flynn Targeted By Mueller, Corrupt Deep State DOJ
{rickwells.us} ~ Lou Dobbs notes that the 29 page of FBI documents that Judicial Watch was originally told didn’t exist, “detail a frenzied... wild hunt within the FBI, looking for a source who talked to a reporter.” Dobbs clarifies that “they were looking for the leaker” of information regarding the clandestine tarmac meeting between liar-Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch. He says, “The messages show almost no concern over the actual meeting itself, its propriety and what was discussed.” Chris Farrell of Judicial Watch reminds us that the FBI at first lied and then produced them once DOJ correspondence referenced them. He says, “And even now, the redactions that they’ve made, hiding the names of people involved is pretty cowardly and dishonest.”...   https://rickwells.us/ok-clapper-brennan-lied-flynn/

Senate Tax Bill: Middle Receives Largest Cuts

by CHRIS EDWARDS
{cato.org} ~ The distribution effects of the Senate tax bill are examined in a Washington Post story. Reporter Heather Long looks at the bill’s liar-nObamacare mandate repeal... based on a new Congressional Budget Office (CBO) study. A table in the study appears to show, “The Senate Republican tax plan gives substantial tax cuts and benefits to Americans earning more than $100,000 a year, while the nation’s poorest would be worse off.” Along with the CBO table, Long presents a Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) table sent to her by Senate GOP staff showing the tax bill’s effects without the liar-nObamacare piece. This table indicates across-the-board tax cuts in the early years, but is in aggregate dollars with no context...   https://www.cato.org/blog/senate-tax-bill-middle-receives-largest-c...

The New York Times: Voice of the swamp
by David Zukerman
{americanthinker.com} ~ The Times, in its lead editorial, December 1, 2017, "Help Wanted: Top Diplomat," is troubled about rumors that CIA director Mike Pompeo may succeed Rex W. Tillerson as secretary of state...  For the Times, Pompeo "may be too chummy" with President Trump.  To boot, he is "a Tea Party conservative and a climate change skeptic."  And more, he is accused of "mixing politics with intelligence"! Of course, the Times has no difficulty with mixing politics and intelligence when the mix involves former liar-nObama intelligence figures like John Brennan and James Clapper.  After all, isn't "Dossiergate" all about mixing up intelligence with politics for the purpose of forcing President Trump from office?  The Times editorial also expresses difficulty with the rumored appointment of Sen. Tom Cotton to replace Mr. Pompeo as CIA director.  Among Cotton's faults, as perceived by the Times, he "has mocked the idea that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia in the presidential election."  Perhaps even worse for the Times, Cotton "has also been Congress's most aggressive opponents of the Iran nuclear deal."  That is to say that we have a president who intends to staff his administration with officials who reflect America's legacy of liberty in foreign as well as domestic policy...  http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2017/12/the_new_york_times_voic...

Greta Van Susteren Unleashes on Former Colleague Gretchen Carlson: You ‘Called Me a Liar’
by George Upper
{westernjournalism.com} ~ One former Fox New colleague went after another on Twitter Friday... reminding readers of the high-profile sexual harassment claims that hit the news long before Harvey Weinstein made them the news of the day for weeks. Greta Van Susteren tweeted first about ABC News’ “fake news” claim that Michael Flynn, former national security adviser to President Donald Trump, had held conversations with Russian officials prior to the November general election — an act that likely would have been illegal. Flynn had, in fact, held those conversations as a member of President-elect Trump’s transition team in December, 2016, as virtually every transition team in history has done...   https://www.westernjournalism.com/greta-van-susteren-unleashes-form...

Judicial Watch Loses – Swamp Court Sides
With Sessions DOJ To Bury liar-Clinton Indictments
{rickwells.us} ~ Once again the swamp creatures of the judiciary slithered to the rescue of their slimy, sleazy comrade liar-Hillary Clinton... ruling against the American people and in favor of keeping the liar-Clinton crimes as secret as they can. The US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled on Friday, siding with the Jeff Sessions  DOJ which argued on liar-Clinton’s behalf, against ordering the release of draft indictments prepared against her during the mid-1990s Whitewater scandal. Judicial Watch had filed a Freedom of Information Act Request with the National Archives and Records Administration in 2015 for the two draft indictments. They were the product of an independent Counsel investigation into suspected fraudulent liar-Clinton real estate dealings...Trump you need to get rid of Session.  https://rickwells.us/judicial-watch-court-clinton/

Watergate Was Nothing Compared to This
by Tom McLaughlin
 
{tommclaughlin.blogspot.com} ~ First thing every morning I skipped down two flights of stairs to get the Boston Globe because I couldn’t wait to read the latest developments in the Watergate scandal then bringing down the Nixon Administration. Familiar as I still am with those details, they pale by comparison to abuses of power under the liar-nObama Administration and its collusion with the 2016 liar-Hillary Clinton presidential campaign recently coming to light.
President Nixon’s campaign had hired a group called “the plumbers” to plug leaks of information from his administration to the media. Their activities were legal up to the point when they broke into to a rented office of DNC Chairman Larry O’Brien in Washington, DC’s Watergate Hotel, hence the name of the infamous scandal. They were hoping to find embarrassing information to hurt Democrat presidential candidate George McGovern’s 1972 campaign against Nixon.
During the long investigation into this break-in, other illegal activities came to light including another break-in to the office of Daniel Ellsburg’s psychiatrist. Ellsburg had leaked the classified “Pentagon Papers,” which revealed that some of Nixon’s public statements about his conduct of the Vietnam War were erroneous, and the New York Times published them. Nixon was not aware of the Watergate break-in until the Washington Post began publishing stories about it. At that point he began using his executive power to thwart the investigation. That led to credible charges of “obstruction of justice,” for which he resigned to avoid impeachment.
Nixon had contemplated other abuses of his power like using the IRS to harass political enemies of which he had made an infamous list. He never did, but Americans were appalled that he considered it. The liar-Obama Administration, however, did more than consider it. It actually used the IRS to harass political enemies, but The Washington Post and the rest of mainstream media were disinclined to investigate.
Conservative pundits claim most of the 62,979,879 Americans who voted for Trump last year believe Democrats, Republican leadership, and Mainstream Media all cooperate with each other against them. Variously called “Bitter Clingers” by liar-nObama and “Deplorables” by liar-Hillary Clinton, Trump supporters see their man as someone with the temperament necessary to kick all their a**es while he “drains the swamp” in which they all reside.
Denizens of the swamp went into a collective panic when Trump unexpectedly won. After the shock wore off, the lame-duck liar-nObama Administration began laying traps for him using an obscure, never-enforced 1799 law called “The Logan Act” according to columnist Byron York. Using the Logan Act as justification, liar-nObama officials cited the dodgy “Trump Dossier” constructed by an opposition research firm paid by the liar-Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democrat National Committee (DNC). FBI agent Peter Strzok, whom Special Counsel Mueller recently dismissed from his investigation, used the dodgy dossier to obtain FISA warrants to wiretap both the Trump campaign and the Trump transition team.
Strzok and Mueller
 
It was Strzok, presumably under the direction of then-FBI Director Comey, who offered to pay $50,000 of taxpayer money to Christopher Steele, author of the dodgy dossier, to continue his research against Donald Trump during the campaign! Strzok also led the dubious FBI “investigation” of liar-Hillary Clinton’s emails. Compared to these revelations, Nixon’s actions during Watergate seem trivial. Why aren’t Washington Post reporters looking into these developments?
Under dubious authority, other liar-nObama officials including Susan Rice and Samantha Power requested hundreds of FISA transcripts including General Flynn’s December, 2016 contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak during Trump’s transition. They unmasked Flynn to set him up for FBI interrogation four days after Trump’s inauguration. ABC reporter Brian Ross breathlessly reported last Friday that Trump directed Flynn’s conversations during the campaign! Ross had to retract it hours later and was suspended by ABC, but not before his report caused the stock market to plunge.
Flynn and Kushner
 
According the Buzzfeed, it was actually Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner who instructed Flynn to contact Kislyak and discuss the then-upcoming UN Security Council vote against Israeli settlements in East Jerusalem and the West Bank. Most importantly, however, his instruction was during the transition after Trump had won — not during the campaign — and therefore not within the realm of Mueller’s original charge to investigate alleged Russia/Trump campaign collusion. It’s perfectly reasonable for a transition official like Flynn to contact foreign governments, yet Flynn evidently lied about them to the FBI. Why? We don’t know.
(Update: Its was K.T. McFarland not Jared Kushner who asked Flynn to contact Kislyak)
As of this writing, neither Mueller nor anyone else has yet found evidence of Trump/Russia campaign collusion despite a year-and-a-half of investigations by mainstream media and Congressional Democrats. Trump supporters see them all as part of “the swamp” conspiring to bring down the Trump Administration. For that, there’s plenty of evidence.

Watergate was nothing compared to what I’m seeing now.

ALERT ALERT

Hillary Clinton Was Not Formally Under
FBI Investigation At Any Time In 2015-2016

On Tuesday, Inspector General Michael Horowitz testified in a joint Congressional hearing to the House Oversight and House Judiciary panels about his review of the FBI’s (mis)handling of the Clinton email investigation.

House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) came out swinging Tuesday in a a joint hearing held by the House Oversight and House Judiciary Committees.

Gowdy ripped into Comey in his opening statement, stating, “we can’t survive with a justice system we don’t trust.”

Investigative journalist Paul Sperry reported Horowitz dropped a bombshell in his testimony.

Horowitz revealed the FBI never named a target or even a subject in the Clinton email probe!

Sperry tweeted: BREAKING: IG Horowitz revealed in Senate testimony FBI never named a target or even subject in Clinton probe. Not Mills, Abedin, Combetta or Clinton herself. “Nobody was listed as a subject of this investigation at any point in time,” adding this was “surprising” for a crim probe

So neither Hillary nor her top aides were formally under investigation by the FBI at any time in 2015-2016, tweeted Sperry.

BREAKING: Horowitz revealed that Hillary was never really under formal investigation, never listed by FBI as a "subject" of investigation.

President of Judicial Watch Tom Fitton reacted to this bombshell bias from the FBI.

Tom Fitton  @TomFitton

.@RealDonaldTrump is a subject, but Hillary Clinton was never a "subject." Outrageous. Shut the Strzok-Page-Comey-McCabe-Lynch-Yates-Glenn Simpson-Steele-Brennan-Fusion GPS-Muller special counsel "stop @realDonaldTrump" investigation down.

tigation’ into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server was a complete sham.

No subjects were named, immunity was handed out like candy and Hillary was exonerated before witnesses were interviewed, including Hillary Clinton herself.

Hillary Clinton’s ‘interview’ with the FBI wasn’t even under oath.

Even more egregious, Hillary discussed pregnancy and babies during the majority of the 2.5 hour FBI interview because one of her lawyers was pregnant at the time.

Inspector General Horowitz also testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee Monday.

TEA PARTY TARGET

Targeting Of Tea Party Groups
John McCain’s Staff Director Urged Lois Lerner
And IRS To Engage In “Financially Ruinous”

Conservative watchdog group, Judicial Watch obtained IRS documents Thursday revealing backstabber Senator John McCain’s former staff director urged the IRS, including the corrupt Lois Lerner to engage in “financially ruinous” targeting of conservative Tea Party groups.

And they did.

The IRS Conservative Targeting Scandal involved:

  • Hundreds of conservative groups were targeted
  • At least 5 pro-Israel groups
  • Constitutional groups
  • Groups that criticized Obama administration
  • At least two pro-life groups
  • An 83 year-old Nazi concentration camp survivor
  • A 180 year-old Baptist paper
  • A Texas voting-rights group
  • A Hollywood conservative group was targeted and harassed
  • Conservative activists and businesses
  • At least one conservative Hispanic group
  • IRS continued to target groups even after the scandal was exposed
  • And… 100% of the 501(c)(4) Groups Audited by IRS Were
  • Conservative

Now this…

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen. John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.” Kerner was appointed by President Trump as Special Counsel for the United States Office of Special Counsel.

The explosive exchange was contained in notes taken by IRS employees at an April 30, 2013, meeting between Kerner, Lerner, and other high-ranking IRS officials. Just ten days following the meeting, former IRS director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner admitted that the IRS had a policy of improperly and deliberately delaying applications for tax-exempt status from conservative non-profit groups.

Lerner and other IRS officials met with select top staffers from the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee in a “marathon” meeting to discuss concerns raised by both Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI) and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) that the IRS was not reining in political advocacy groups in response to the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. Senator McCain had been the chief sponsor of the McCain-Feingold Act and called the Citizens United decision, which overturned portions of the Act, one of the “worst decisions I have ever seen.”

In the full notes of an April 30 meeting, McCain’s high-ranking staffer Kerner recommends harassing non-profit groups until they are unable to continue operating. Kerner tells Lerner, Steve Miller, then chief of staff to IRS commissioner, Nikole Flax, and other IRS officials, “Maybe the solution is to audit so many that it is financially ruinous.” In response, Lerner responded that “it is her job to oversee it all:”

Henry Kerner asked how to get to the abuse of organizations claiming section 501 (c)(4) but designed to be primarily political. Lois Lerner said the system works, but not in real time. Henry Kerner noted that these organizations don’t disclose donors. Lois Lerner said that if they don’t meet the requirements, we can come in and revoke, but it doesn’t happen timely. Nan Marks said if the concern is that organizations engaging in this activity don’t disclose donors, then the system doesn’t work. Henry Kerner said that maybe the solution is to audit so many that it is financially ruinous. Nikole noted that we have budget constraints. Elise Bean suggested using the list of organizations that made independent expenditures. Lois Lerner said that it is her job to oversee it all, not just political campaign activity.

President of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton had this to say about the newly obtained IRS documents showing more proof the agency was weaponized under Obama:

“The Obama IRS scandal is bipartisan – McCain and Democrats who wanted to regulate political speech lost at the Supreme Court, so they sought to use the IRS to harass innocent Americans. The Obama IRS scandal is not over – as Judicial Watch continues to uncover smoking gun documents that raise questions about how the Obama administration weaponized the IRS, the FEC, FBI, and DOJ to target the First Amendment rights of Americans.”
