Clinton-Lynch Tarmac Whistleblower Blows Whistle Again

Christopher Sign-the reporter who broke the headline about then U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch meeting with former president Bill Clinton on the Phoenix tarmac in 2016-still believes that the encounter was not about discussing golf and grandchildren. Recalling the pinnacle of the FBI investigation into Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s secret server, Sign says he has yet to find a corroborating witness that Bill even touched a golf course during that trip. “To this day, I have never found a single person who claims or corroborates any story that Bill Clinton played golf on this particular trip,” Sign reported. It’s yet another step toward piecing together the real story behind the DOJ/DOS collaboration to exonerate Hillary.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

The journalist who broke the story about former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s tarmac meeting with Bill Clinton on a hot summer’s day in 2016 doubts the former president’s claim that he played golf while in Phoenix.

That chance encounter on June 27, 2016, led to a firestorm of criticism, as it took place during the FBI’s investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of an unauthorized email server and the presidential election in which she was the Democratic candidate. Lynch and Bill Clinton claim his wife’s emails were never discussed. Both say Clinton brought up golf, while Lynch said Clinton told her he had played golf during that particular trip to Arizona.

“To this day I have never found a single person who claims or corroborates any story that Bill Clinton played golf on this particular trip,” Christopher Sign, who was a morning anchor at ABC15 when he broke the story, told RealClearInvestigations.

GOP Senators Demand “Highly Classified” Clinton Memo

Three Republican senators-all committee chairmen-are turning up the heat on Attorney General Bill Barr to reveal “highly classified information” that the FBI refused to pursue as part of the Hillary Clinton secret server investigation. The FBI memo from May 2016 says that the information is “necessary” to complete the investigation…but the FBI declined to investigate before former FBI Director James Comey closed the investigation in July 2016. According to a letter sent by Senators Lindsey Graham (SC), Chuck Grassley (IA), and Ron Johnson (WI), the IG’s finding “raises significant issues associated with the FBI’s failure to review certain highly classified information in support of its Midyear investigation.” The house of cards continues to crumble for the Deep State.

Here’s more from The Daily Caller…

The Republican chairmen of three Senate committees are pressing Attorney General William Barr for details about “highly classified information” that the FBI declined to investigate as part of the Hillary Clinton email probe.

The FBI drafted a memo in May 2016 saying that the information was “necessary” to complete the investigation into Clinton’s handling of classified information on her private email server, according to the Republicans.

But as the Justice Department inspector general found in a report released last year, the FBI declined to take up the matter before closing the Clinton investigation in July 2016.

The trio of senators want to know why.

Ex-Obama Lawyer Caught in Mueller Dragnet

Former Obama White House lawyer Greg Craig is expected to be indicted for failure to disclose his work in 2012 for the Russia-backed president of Ukraine. The Wall Street Journal reported, “The people familiar with the situation say they believe Mr. Craig will be charged with making false statements to the Justice Department unit that oversees the activities of foreign agents, though other charges are possible.” The charges stem from findings in the Mueller report and focus on whether or not Craig made false statements to the Justice Department in 2013. Why none of this was reported by the Leftist media during the highest point of the Russia collusion is obvious.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

The legal team for former Obama White House lawyer Greg Craig say that they expect Craig to be indicted in the near future on charges related to work that he performed in 2012 for the Russia-aligned government of Ukraine.

“Mr. Craig has refused to accept a plea deal, and the matter could be presented to a grand jury for indictment as soon as Thursday, people familiar with the matter say,” The Wall Street Journal reported. “The people familiar with the situation say they believe Mr. Craig will be charged with making false statements to the Justice Department unit that oversees the activities of foreign agents, though other charges are possible.”

The case against the 74-year-old Democrat — who has served in senior legal positions under two Democrat presidents — originated from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

Senate Republicans Speed Up Judicial Nominations

Senate Republicans aren’t waiting for the Left to play nice when confirming President Trump’s pending judicial nominations. After the Democrats have used delay tactics for months, the Republicans are now poised to change Senate rules to cut the debate time from 30 hours to two hours for district court judges and sub-Cabinet level executive branch nominees. Republicans will be using the “nuclear option” to advance the rules change with a simple majority much like Harry Reid used in the 113th Congress. Harry Reid is really second-guessing that nuclear option stunt now.

Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

Senate Republicans this week are poised to make good on a monthslong threat to change the rules in order to speed up confirming President Trump’s judicial nominees.

A vote to advance a measure could take place as early as Tuesday and comes after months of delay tactics employed by Senate Democrats eager to slow Trump’s effort to seat new federal judges.

The Senate rules change would slash debate time from 30 hours to two hours for district court judges as well as sub-Cabinet level executive branch nominees.

Republicans, who control the majority, plan to advance the rules change with 51 votes, a move that would block Democrats from filibustering the change in what many consider to be a “nuclear option” maneuver.

Christian Baker Jack Phillips Wins AGAIN

Once again Christian baker Jack Phillips has successfully defended his First Amendment rights in another round of legal harassment from LGBT activists and the Colorado Civil Rights Commission. The first round that gained national attention regarded gay “marriage” and this most recent cake, “transgender celebration.” The Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), who represented Phillips, announced Tuesday that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission “will dismiss its most recent charges against cake artist Jack Phillips in the wake of newly discovered evidence of the state’s ongoing hostility toward religious freedom.” Political correctness and Leftism Gestapo tactics are on the losing end of history.

Here’s more from The Daily Wire…

The Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF), a Christian nonprofit that advocates for religious freedom and traditional values, announced Tuesday that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission “will dismiss its most recent charges against cake artist Jack Phillips in the wake of newly discovered evidence of the state’s ongoing hostility toward religious freedom.”

After Phillips prevailed at the Supreme Court in Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, the Christian baker was targeted for refusing to create a transgender celebration cake due to his religious beliefs concerning sex and gender. ADF explains:

On June 26, 2017, the same day that the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to take up Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, an attorney asked cake artist Jack Phillips to create a cake designed pink on the inside and blue on the outside, which the attorney said was to celebrate a gender transition from male to female.

Rosenstein, Comey, Mueller, and McCabe Collusion Conspiracy Theory Skeptics?

According to John Dowd, a former personal attorney representing President Trump in the Russia collusion investigation, top federal law enforcement officials did not “sincerely believe” in the conspiracy theory in the first place. Rather, Dowd says, Rosenstein, Comey, Mueller, and McCabe were in on a “coup” against President Trump. Dowd detailed, “They play games with his counterintelligence business an attempted coup by Comey and his crowd. And, the evidence is all over there. I take the New York Times article as an admission of their bad behavior.” Dowd is a tad biased, of course, but his point is taken. The evidence points-and we expect Mueller’s report will back as well-to one obviously conclusion: Trump is innocent of the very collusion for which the FBI is guilty.

A partial transcript is as follows:

JOHN DOWD: Little did I know that it appears that they were all in it together. I mean, Rosenstein, Comey, Mueller, McCabe, the whole crowd and they were out to get this president, no matter what. I don’t think they sincerely believed anything about Russia.

White House Prepping to Replace RBG

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 85, missed Supreme Court oral arguments this week for the first time since joining the bench decades ago. The Heritage Foundation’s Elizabeth Slattery warns, however, that “we shouldn’t read too much into the fact that she’s missed three days of oral arguments” since Ginsburg just had surgery Dec. 21 and is recovering from early-stage lung cancer. The missed days of work could indicate additional recovery time in as much as they implicate future health concerns for Ginsburg who has a well-documented history with various cancers. Nevertheless, the White House, as a precaution, has quietly let top Republicans know it is prepared for any vacancy and has a list of replacement candidates at the ready. Are you ready for another Supreme Court battle?

Here’s more from Fox News…

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s absence this week from Supreme Court oral arguments – her first since joining the bench – has touched off a burst of speculation as well as low-key planning from the White House about the possibility of a departure.

At the same time, observers aren’t convinced the liberal backbone of the court is going anywhere. And as she recovers from early-stage lung cancer surgery, they suggest talk of a vacancy is premature.

“We shouldn’t read too much into the fact that she’s missed three days of oral arguments,” said Elizabeth Slattery, host of the conservative Heritage Foundation’s “Scotus 101” podcast. “She famously was back on the bench the day after her beloved husband Marty passed away so she’s obviously very committed to the job. But clearly she needs time to recuperate.”

Parkland Deputy’s Attorney Declares “No Legal Duty” to Protect Students

The lawyer for former Deputy Scot Peterson, who cowered during the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in February 2018, is arguing that his client had “no legal duty” to protect the students. The lawyer for Andrew Pollack, whose daughter was killed during the shooting, countered saying, “It is inconceivable that anyone could advance the proposition that Scot Peterson had no duty to these people. That is an absurd proposition. … This was an abdication of responsibility when this [shooting] happened, and it is an abdication of responsibility now in this courtroom.” Peterson memorably arrived on the scene, radioed for help, and then stood outside the building for another five minutes as the shooter killed more students. This is abject cowardice, and Peterson should serve jail time.

Here’s more from Breitbart…

The deputy who stood by while the February 14, 2018, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting was taking place asked a judge to rule that he had “no legal duty” to protect the students.

The Sun-Sentinel reports that Scot Peterson’s attorney, Michael Piper, told Judge Englander Henning, “We want to say he had an obligation, but the law isn’t that. From a legal standpoint, there was no duty.”

Henning rejected Piper’s argument, opining that Peterson had an “obligation to act reasonably” in response to the shooting.

The suit against Peterson is a wrongful death suit brought by Andrew Pollack, father of Parkland shooting victim Meadow Pollack.

Joel Perwin, Pollack’s attorney, expressed astonishment that Peterson is trying to get the suit dismissed. Perwin said, “It is inconceivable that anyone could advance the proposition that Scot Peterson had no duty to these people.

Hillary Whistleblower Raided by FBI Claims “Secret Police State”

Dennis Nathan Cain, a former FBI contractor turned Clinton-Uranium One court-recognized whistleblower, says the FBI raid on his home despite this status reveals that the “deep state” is real. “So I blow the whistle on the FBI, get raided by the same FBI, and now they want to keep the FBI’s reasons secret? Do we now live in a secret police state? Feels a little like 1984,” Cain tweeted. Suspiciously, the raid happened just before former FBI Director James Comey, who oversaw this investigation, was slated to appear before closed-door meetings with Congress on this very topic. There’s still much more than meets the eye here, but we should assume precisely zero will be done about it in the new House of Representatives, which will be controlled by the Democrats.

Here’s more from Fox News…

A former FBI contractor-turned-whistleblower who supplied documents related to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Uranium One controversy is blasting the FBI over a mysterious raid on his home last month.

Questioning whether “we now live in a secret police state,” Dennis Nathan Cain took his frustration to Twitter on the heels of a report that the Justice Department is trying to keep the justification for the raid secret.

“So I blow the whistle on the FBI, get raided by the same FBI, and now they want to keep the FBI’s reasons secret? Do we now live in a secret police state? Feels a little like 1984,” Cain tweeted late Monday, citing The Daily Caller report.

Clinton State Department Provided “Clearly False” Statements During Investigations

U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth blasted career State Department officials with accusations of lying and signing “clearly false” affidavits to thwart investigations. Yes, these were plural investigations — indicating perhaps a pattern of corruption — related to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server and the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi. Lamberth also said he was “shocked” and “dumbfounded” to learn that the FBI granted immunity to Clinton’s former chief of staff Cheryl Mills.

Here’s more from Fox News…

In a combative exchange at a hearing Friday in Washington, D.C., a federal judge unabashedly accused career State Department officials of lying and signing “clearly false” affidavits to derail a series of lawsuits seeking information about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server and her handling of the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth also said he was “shocked” and “dumbfounded” when he learned that FBI had granted immunity to former Clinton chief of staff Cheryl Mills during its investigation into the use of Clinton’s server, according to a court transcript of his remarks.

“I had myself found that Cheryl Mills had committed perjury and lied under oath in a published opinion I had issued in a Judicial Watch case where I found her unworthy of belief, and I was quite shocked to find out she had been given immunity in — by the Justice Department in the Hillary Clinton email case,” Lamberth said during the hearing.
