Appearing on The Ingraham Angle, Fitton discussed FBI memos detailing the pressure of FBI agent Peter Strzok put on former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to ultimately get a warrant on Carter Page. He said that the memos are confirmation Strzok and his allies were looking for excuses to target Trump’s team: “Oh, it’s further confirmation that the Trump-Russia investigation was infected by this hyper-political bias against President Trump, where they’re looking for excuses to target his team.” Fitton further addressed Strzok’s statement on Carter Page, in which Strzok said “At the minimum, the letter provides a pretext to interview...

DOJ Attorney Lisa Page Refuses To Testify To Congress
by sundance
{ theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) issued the following statement after Lisa Page decided to defy the Committee’s subpoena... “It appears that Lisa Page has something to hide. She plans to blatantly defy a congressional subpoena by refusing to appear for her deposition. She has known for months that the House Judiciary Committee has sought her testimony as part of our joint investigation with the Oversight Committee into decisions made by the Justice Department in 2016, and she has no excuse for her failure to appear. Lisa Page is a key witness, and it is critical that she come before our committees to answer questions as part of our investigation. “We will use all tools at our disposal to obtain her testimony. Americans across the country are alarmed at the bias exhibited by top officials at the Justice Department and FBI, and it is imperative Congress conduct vigorous oversight to ensure that never happens again.” When are you going to start charging these people who fail to testify?

Tedra Cobb Tells Supporters She Wants 
‘Assault Rifle’ Ban But ‘Cannot Say That’ in Public 
by Stephen Gutowski
{ freebeacon.com } ~ Tedra Cobb, the dummycrats-Democratic candidate in New York's 21st Congressional District... told a group of teenage supporters that she supports a ban on certain firearms but won't say so publicly for fear of losing her election. "When I was at this thing today, it was the first table I was at, a woman said, ‘How do you feel about assault rifles?' And I said they should be banned," Cobb can be heard saying in the video recorded by one of the attendees. "And I said, you know, people were getting up to go, to go get their lunch because it was a buffet, and I just said to her, I want you to know Cindy, I cannot say that." When the woman pushed back on Cobb keeping quiet on how she feels about banning certain firearms, Cobb said coming out in favor of a gun ban would lead to her losing her bid against Republican incumbent Elise Stefanik...

A #WalkAway Movement Whose Time Has Come  

by Arnold Ahlert:  “I didn’t leave the dummycrats-Democratic Party, the Democratic Party left me."—Ronald Reagan, 1962

             "What do these people stand for? What is their platform? All I can figure out so far is ‘We hate Trump’ and ‘We love illegal immigrants.’"—openly gay Brandon Straka, founder of the #WalkAway campaign, 2018
               Of all the things exposed by the 2016 election — the rank corruption at the highest levels of national law enforcement, the astounding arrogance of judicial branch members who substitute political ideology for law, and the profound devolution of a mainstream media into a de facto Ministry of Truth whose "truth” is the advancement of the progressive agenda — none was more cathartic than the exposure of the “tolerant” American Left as the nation’s foremost promulgators of hate and hysteria.
               For decades, these self-appointed doyens of “enlightened” thinking have tasked themselves with fundamentally transforming a fundamentally flawed America into a socialist utopia run by globalist elites answerable to no one but themselves. Globalist elites whose commitment to “social justice” amounted to remaining wholly immune to the damage they inflicted on “deplorable” Americans while enriching themselves.
               On Nov. 8, 2016, their self-serving construct was conspicuously rejected.
               Ever since, the wisdom of an electorate rejecting that odious status quo — the one former president Barack liar-nObama assured us would be his “third term” with liar-Hillary Clinton in charge — has been completely validated. All one would have to do to realize the level of bankruptcy that attends progressive ideology is substitute Barack liar-nObama’s name for Donald Trump’s. And imagine the Left’s reaction if a comedian  stated liar-nObama’s mouth is Putin’s c—k holster, a high school mural depicted liar-nObama’s severed head, a Hollywood celebrity tweeted  someone should “rip” Malia or Sasha from Michelle liar-nObama’s arms and put one or the other in a cage full of pedophiles, or a Republican House representative  urged   conservatives to “push back” and “create a crowd” so that liar-nObama administration officials understood “they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere!
               Just for starters. Brandon Straka has had enough. “The #WalkAway Campaign is a true grassroots movement,” his campaign’s Facebook page states. “It is a video campaign movement, dedicated to sharing the stories of people who can no longer accept the current ideology of liberalism and what the dummycrats-Democratic Party has become. … Some here have wanted to leave for some time, but have feared the consequences they might suffer from friends or family if they walk away.”
               Attorney Alan Dershowitz revealed some of those consequences, explaining that his “friends” on Martha’s Vineyard have shunned him for defending Trump’s constitutional rights. He cites one of them as saying that if he appeared at one of her parties she’d “stab him through the heart.
               MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough defends such puerile close-mindedness. “As my grandmother would say, Alan, when you lie down with dogs, you get up with fleas,” Scarborough sniffed. “And so he can’t try to undermine Robert Mueller … and then be shocked that he’s not allowed to go to the finest spots on Martha’s Vineyard.
               Scarborough’s contempt is shared by Washington Post columnist Abby Ohlheiser, who dismisses the #WalkAway campaign as a conservative-orchestrated mirage. “As the Internet fragments, our understanding of what it means to go ‘viral’ has become complicated, and increasingly meaningless. A hashtag claiming to capture a movement among liberals has gone viral, in this case, almost exclusively on the right-wing Internet, as a reinforcement of one of its binding ideas,” she writes. “There’s little actual evidence to suggest that #WalkAway represents a mass conversion of millions — or even thousands — of dummycrats- Democrats to the Trump Train since Straka’s video.
               As columnist David Catron explains, Ohlheiser misses the point, especially with regard to black Americans who have been one of the dummycrats-Democrat Party’s most reliable voting blocs — and thus taken for granted. “A ‘Great Awakening’ isn’t required,” he writes. “All that is needed is about 5 percent more African-Americans to vote Republican and another 5 to 10 percent to simply stay home. … That means, to quote Reagan, ‘We win, they lose.’”
               Unfortunately for dummycrats-Democrats, it’s not just black Americans Straka is recruiting. “If you are a person of color, an LGBT person, a woman or an American immigrant, the dummycrats-Democratic Party wants you to know you are a victim,” Straka says in a video he posted May 26. “This is perhaps the dummycrats-Democratic Party’s greatest, and most insidious, lie.”
               Lie? Political platform is more like it. Without the continued cultivation of victimization that fuels big-government dependency, dummycrats-Democrats are in serious trouble. Straka notes what their concern has engendered. “The dummycrats-Democratic Party that I once loved has joined forces with the extremist left.
               Don’t take his word for it. DNC Chairman Tom Perez has dubbed socialist dummycrats-Democrat commie-Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez “the future of our party” following her defeat of incumbent Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th Congressional District primary.
               commie-Ocasio-Cortez makes it clear what that future portends: “free” Medicare for all, the abolishment of ICE, a federal government-imposed jobs guarantee, housing as a “human right,” mobilization against climate change, gun control and higher education “for everyone.” And like many of her fellow dummycrats- Democrats, she supports impeaching Donald Trump.
               Moreover, like commie-Bernie Sanders, who owns three homes and earned over a million dollars in 2016, commie-Ocasio-Cortez’s socialist, working class “girl from the Bronx” bona fides are conspicuously lacking. While she was born in the Bronx, her family moved to Yorktown Heights, a wealthy Westchester County suburban town, when she was five — a detail her biography conspicuously omitted until she subsequently “tweaked” it.
               Maybe that’s because Westchester is the eighth-richest county in the nation.
               “Do as I say, not as I do” hypocrisy and extremism are beginning to take a toll. “For far too long, the left has controlled the narrative in this country in news and media while the ‘silent majority’ on the right have done what they always do — remained silent,” the #WalkAway Facebook page continues. “The left has been allowed for so long to reinforce the narrative that everybody on the right is a bigot, a racist, a homophobe, a misogynist, etc. But the left has become so extreme, it’s now time to fight back.”
               Now? Conservatives have been fighting for quite some time. Fighting against Hollywood, academia, the media and the dummycrats-Democrat Party, along with the faction of GOPers who spinelessly acquiesce to the progressive agenda. Fighting against #NeverTrump blowhards like backstabber-Bill Kristol, George Will, Max Boot, Bret Stephens and others whose “principles” would have abided undiscovered Deep State machinations, a leftist Supreme Court, the continued hollowing out of Heartland America, and the open-borders/amnesty agenda a liar-Clinton presidency would have surely inflicted on the nation. The same “principles” that have them rooting for dummycrats-Democrats to prevail in November.
               Straka has other ideas. “This is a movement of patriots of all walks of life — men, women, black, brown, white, straight, LGBTQ, religious, non-believers, who share something very important in common… WE ARE AMERICAN and we will not surrender our country!” Amen to that.

ALERT ALERT

 Judge Orders Mueller To Prove  Russia Meddled In Election 

Judge Dabney L. Friedrich

A Washington federal judge on Thursday ordered special counsel Robert Mueller’s team to clarify election meddling claims lodged against a Russian company operated by Yevgeny Prigozhin, an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to Bloomberg.

Concord Management and Consulting, LLC. – one of three businesses indicted by Mueller in February along with 13 individuals for election meddling, surprised the special counsel in April when they actually showed up in court to fight the charges. Mueller’s team tried to delay Concord from entering the case, arguing that thee Russian company not been properly served, however Judge Dabney Friedrich denied the request – effectively telling prosecutors ‘well, they’re here.’

Concord was accused in the indictment of supporting the Internet Research Agency (IRA), a Russian ‘troll farm’ accused of trying to influence the 2016 US election.

On Thursday, Judge Freidrich asked Mueller’s prosecutors if she should assume they aren’t accusing Concord of violating US laws applicable to election expenditures and failure to register as a foreign agent.

Concord has asked Dabney to throw out the charges – claiming that Mueller’s office fabricated a crime, and that there is no law against interfering in elections.

According to the judge’s request for clarification, the Justice Department has argued that it doesn’t have to show that Concord had a legal duty to report its expenditures to the Federal Election Commission. Rather, the allegation is that the company knowingly engaged in deceptive acts that precluded the FEC, or the Justice Department, from ascertaining whether they had broken the law. -Bloomberg

On Monday, Friedrich raised questions over whether the special counsel’s office could prove a key element of their case – saying that it was “hard to see” how allegations of Russian influence were intended to interfere with US government operations vs. simply “confusing voters,” reports law.com.

During a 90-minute hearing, Friedrich questioned prosecutor Jonathan Kravis about how the government would be able to show the Russian defendants were aware of the Justice Department and FEC’s functions and then deliberately sought to skirt them.

“You still have to show knowledge of the agencies and what they do. How do you do that?” Friedrich asked.

Kravis, a prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia, argued that the government needed only to show that Concord Management and the other defendants were generally aware that the U.S. government “regulates and monitors” foreign participation in American politics. That awareness, Kravis said, could be inferred from the Russians’ alleged creation of fake social media accounts that appeared to be run by U.S. citizens and “computer infrastructure” intended to mask the Russian origin of the influence operation.

“That is deception that is directed at a higher level,” Kravis said. Kravis appeared in court with Michael Dreeben, a top Justice Department appellate lawyer on detail to the special counsel’s office. -law.com

Concord pleaded not guilty in May. Their attorney, Eric Dubelier – a partner at Reed Smith, has described the election meddling charges as “make believe,” arguing on Monday that Mueller’s indictment against Concord “doesn’t charge a crime.”

“There is no statute of interfering with an election. There just isn’t,” said Dubelier, who added that Mueller’s office alleged a “made-up crime to fit the facts they have.”

Dubelier added that the case against Concord Management is the first in US history “where anyone has ever been charged with defrauding the Justice Department” through their failure to register under FARA.
