In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

Barr: Durham Not Expected to Investigate Obama or Biden

That’s not, I would argue, an luxury that a Democratic attorney general would afford a former Republican president in the same circumstances. Attorney General William Barr said Monday during a news conference that he does not expect U.S. Attorney John Durham, who is investigating the Obama administration’s Russia probe, to target Barack Obama or Joe Biden. But he didn’t rule out that Obama and Biden

Lindsey Graham: Plot Underway to Shut Down Probe of Origins of Russia Collusion Charges

The MSM and the Democrats don’t like it when the investigation gets turned on them. Strangely, both Dems and the dutiful soldiers of the Fourth Estate could care less about whether the Obama administration sought unethically and even illegally to either overturn an election or discredit the incoming president. So now, efforts by the Trump administration to solicit foreign help in this important probe are

Whistleblower Complaint Has Nothing New Except Charge Transcript Was Hidden

The whistleblower complaint was released Thursday morning. As far as I can tell, there’s not much in there we don’t already know, other than an allegation that the White House tried to classify the document out of view. From the complaint: White House officials told me that they were “directed” by White House lawyers to remove the electronic transciiprt from the computer system in which

The Ukraine Phone Call is Not Proof of a Quid Pro Quo

Some of you may notice that I took down a post I put up earlier saying exactly the opposite: that it was clear from the transcript of the phone call between President Trump and Ukrainian President Zelensky that Trump had dangled foreign aid in order to get Zelensky to investigate Joe and Hunter Biden. But I read a comment by one of my many smart

Trump Will Release Full Call with Ukraine President

Wondering if he set up the media and the Democrats by letting them speculate for days, and he then releases a transcript that shows the conversation was harmless. Reminds me of Barack Obama letting the birther thing go on and then finally releasing his long-form birth certificate. Similar strategy. Anyway, we’ll see what it says.

Epstein Visited Bill Clinton in the White House

President Trump suggested there was more to the story of Bill Clinton and Jeffrey Epstein, the former a noted lecher, the latter a lecher, and a pedophile. Presumably, Trump has access to the White House visitor logs. And perhaps other information as well. Anyway, according to the Daily Beast: Days after Jeffrey Epstein’s arrest on sex-trafficking charges in New York, Bill Clinton distanced himself from the high-flying financier and

President Trump’s favorite new foil allegedly skirted a few rules and laws. Including marrying her brother as part of an immigration fraud scheme. According to the Daily Signal: Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch filed a complaint with the House of Representatives’ ethics office asking for an investigation into possible crimes committed by Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar. The possible crimes include “perjury, immigration fraud, marriage

Wife of Top Trump Investigator Elijah Cummings May Be Involved in Financial Scam

Looks like the investigators may need even more investigating. According to the Washington Examiner: A charity run by the wife of Rep. Elijah Cummings received millions from special interest groups and corporations that had business before her husband’s committee and could have been used illegally, according to an IRS complaint filed by an ethics watchdog group. Cummings, 68, a Maryland Democrat, is chairman of the

Hannity: “Extraordinarily Damning” Info on Corruption at DOJ May be on the Way

Investigating the conduct of the Obama Justice Department, and the Obama White House – and Obama – in probe the Republican presidential campaign should be a priority for the Senate. Not to mention journalists, most of whom couldn’t care less. According to the Washington Examiner: Fox News host Sean Hannity said Monday his sources are telling him information that could soon be released regarding alleged

Republicans Finally Ready to Investigate Obama DOJ, FBI

I don’t know what’s with the Senate Republicans. They have the same investigative powers as House Democrats, and they mostly sit on their asses. But Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, no doubt after a chat or two with President Trump, is going to get the ball rolling. The press, of course, is completely uninterested in whether the Obama administration — as opposed to the Russians
