According to the just released report by the Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe wrongfully caused sensitive law enforcement information to be leaked to the Wall Street Journal and then lied to investigators about having done so. The report runs thirty-five single spaced pages and lays out in excruciating, meticulous, and damning detail how McCabe authorized an anonymous leak calculated to make it appear that he had resisted pressure by Loretta Lynch’s Justice Department to close down the FBI’s investigation of the Clinton Foundation during the 2016 election campaign and then proceeded to cover his tracks with lies.
As spelled out by the OIG, McCabe’s troubles started on October 23, 2016, when the Wall Street Journal published an article by reporter Devlin Barrett stating that political action committees run by Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe and the Virginia Democratic Party (over which the article reported McAuliffe “exerts considerable control”) had donated almost $675,000 to the failed 2015 state senate campaign of McCabe’s wife. The article described McAuliffe as “an influential Democrat with long-standing ties to Bill and Hilary Clinton.” It stated that McCabe was an FBI official “who later helped oversee the investigation” into Secretary of State Hilary Clinton’s use of an unsecured private email server.
I believe the spying on Donald Trump and a host of other Americans by the FBI, DOJ, CIA, DNC, Clinton Campaign and the Obama Administrationis the most serious scandal in the history of the United States. Before this is all said and done, it is going to be a watershed event in American history.
Spying on an opposition candidate in a Presidential election by leveraging the full power of the federal government agencies in a coordinated effort is unprecedented. I am firmly convinced, as is Dan Bongino, that this entire thing was a setup from the very beginning.
Of all the places on the Internet that I get information from, I have found Dan Bongino to be by far the most useful in helping me to understand the scope of this scandal. His podcasts are informative and entertaining, and he includes links each day with his podcast to various articles and opinion pieces from around the Internet.
These links encompass the political spectrum from far left to far right (and everything in between) and Dan Bongino includes them so that we can use the Left’s own words and opinions against them, and I think it works brilliantly.
These are links from Dan Bongino to sources all over the Internet (and to his website and podcasts) for shows from Episode 628 on January 8, 2018 where he began covering this issue in earnest.
NOTE: I know that FR can be very touchy (and often for good reason) about people pimping blogs, but I hope that this thread is both allowed and appreciated by the powers that be at Free Republic for the dissemination of information it can make possible. (And, it isn’t my blog). If I have crossed some threshold unknowingly, I hope that the Admin Mods will work with me to help fix it rather than removing the thread outright, as I have spent several hours working on this compilation.
The game is over for James Comey before it has barely begun. The DOJ/FBI should be be ashamed of themselves for allowing the “low life” ego-maniac James Comey to a part of their once fine organization.
Ya gotta ask yourself, where, in Gods name did the DOJ/FBI get characters and losers like James Comey from?
That answer is clear and present, G.W. Bush, Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, Andrew McCabe, Rod Rosenstein, and, on and on. Sad days for the once great, magnificent, honest, impartial DOJ/FBI, now reduced to being staffed with USA traitors & turncoats. Let us all praise “Big Brother” America hater Barack Hussein Obama….NOT!!!
Newser – Thursday is Holocaust Remembrance Day, and a new survey suggests the day is sorely needed. The results show that many Americans, particularly young adults, lack a basic understanding of the Nazi genocide during World War II. Though 96% of respondents said the Holocaust took place, 31% believe a maximum of 2 million Jews were killed, well under the actual figure of about 6 million, reports the New York Times. The percentage increased to 41% among millennials, defined as those aged 18 to 34. Some 41% of Americans and 66% of millennials had no idea about Auschwitz, the death camp in Nazi-occupied Poland where an estimated 1.1 million were killed, per WFTS.
The executive vice president of the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, which seeks restitution for Holocaust victims and their heirs and commissioned the February survey of 1,350 respondents, says the gaps in understanding are “troubling” given that some 400,000 Holocaust survivors are still living. “Imagine when there are no longer survivors here to tell their stories,” he says, stressing the importance of Holocaust education. He’s backed by survey respondents, 93% of whom said it was important to teach about the Holocaust in schools. While experts say there’s nothing quite like hearing about the genocide directly from a survivor, museums are preparing for a time when no survivors remain, using holograms and recorded testimony to keep their stories alive, notes the Times.
The spear of change has been turned on the people of this state, of which, unfortunately, I am still one. A wave of progressive social policies has been forced upon those people in the middle class who still work. The effort that these workers show leads to nothing but high state taxes higher gas taxes, higher costs of living and housing due to restrictive land-use regulations.
Leading the nation in the number of homeless in our cities, and illegals throughout our State have reached epidemic proportions. A drive through Los Angeles, San Francisco, or any other major city in California will show countless homeless, immigrants and illegal aliens living on the street, making entire sections of the city uninhabitable. Business is leaving in droves, no longer willing to pay high taxes and adhere to devastating business regulations.
California is willing to follow progressive socialist business regulations to send as much money to the State and close out the opportunity for business growth. California ranks 48th in the Tax Foundations 2018 State Business Tax Climate Index. After the businesses, citizens, and middle class were destroyed our Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown forced through Proposition 30 increasing sales and income taxes. By increasing these tax rates and burdening the people in this state both personally and commercially, California’s economic growth has been stagnant if not falling. This has lead California to hold the dubious distinction of being the Poverty Capital of the United States.
