    Authored by Chuck Ross via The Daily Caller, The co-founder of the opposition research firm behind the Trump dossier testified to Congress earlier this month that he believed Russian operatives have infiltrated the National Rifle Association. Glenn Simpson, a founding partner of Fusion GPS, casually suggested in an interview with the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence that the gun rights group had been breached, a source familiar with the matter told The Daily Caller.

  • Roy Moore Refutes Sexual Assault Claim With Statements By Former Restaurant Employees And Customers

    Content originally published at iBankCoin.com Over the last several weeks, accusations of sexual improprieties by Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore have led to calls for the judge to exit the race to fill the vacant seat left by Attorney Jeff Sessions.

  • Why Is The DOJ Downplaying Reports Of Proof Linking Obama And Clinton To Russian Corruption

    Following the release of the identity of the FBI informant, Justice Department officials in recent days said that informant William Campbell’s prior work won’t shed much light on the U.S. government’s controversial decision in 2010 to approve Russia’s purchase of the Uranium One mining company and its substantial U.S. assets. However, The Hill's John Solomon has reviewed 1000s of new memos from an FBI informant that clearly show illegal activity surrounding a Russian plot to corner the American...

  • Kushner "Forgot" To Disclose Contact With Putin Ally

    After being accused in a letter earlier this week sent by the leaders of the Senate Judiciary Committee of failing to turn over emails from September 2016 pertaining to a range of topics including Wikileaks, it appears Kushner is being punished for his obstinance with a series of embarrassing leaks presumably from the same committee that publicly chastised him only days before (bonus points for subtlety). The new allegations are likely to provoke more spurious speculation that Kushner and other...

  • A Plurality Of Voters Want Special Counsel To Investigate Clinton And Trump

    Despite Jeff Sessions’ surprising insistence during his testimony before the House Judiciary Committee earlier this week that there’s “no factual basis” to appoint a special counsel to investigate actions by Clinton and former FBI Director James Comey, a plurality of voters believe special prosecutors should be investigating both the Clinton and Trump campaigns, according to a recent study that was shared with the Hill.  The latest Harvard CAPS/Harris survey found that 44 percent of voters...

  • Judge Declares Mistrial In Bob Menendez Bribery Case

    Democratic New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez will be able to hang on to his job and his freedom - for now, at least - after jurors said they were hopelessly deadlocked on corruption charges against the lawmaker - fulfilling the prediction of a juror who was excused last week and decided to share details of her experience with the media. Menendez was indicted back in 2015 on bribery and corruption charges stemming from his relationship with a Florida ophthamologist. Federal prosecutors say Menendez...

  • Identity of Secret Informant In FBI’s Clinton Probe Unveiled

    More information about the Congressional probes into the Obama-era Uranium One deal leaked out Thursday when Reuters reported that Senate Republicans say their investigation into the Clinton’s role in approving the deal largely hinges on the testimony of a secret informant who was until recently the subject of a federal gag order. But a month after Trump asked the DOJ to lift the gag order - a command that the DOJ promptly obeyed - the man has decided to speak out publicly for the first time in...

  • What Central Banks Have Done Is What They're Actually Good At

    Authored by Jeffrey Snider via Alhambra Investment Partners, As a natural progression from the analysis of one historical bond “bubble” to the latest, it’s statements like the one below that ironically help it continue. One primary manifestation of low Treasury rates is the deepening mistrust constantly fomented in markets by the media equivalent of the boy who cries recovery. That narrative “has ruffled a few feathers,” BMO Capital Markets strategists Ian Lyngen and Aaron Kohli wrote in a note...

    Marine Corps veteran Tommy Waller, director of special projects at the Center for Security Policy, has warned President Trump about the EMP threat facing the United States. "Winston Churchill once said, 'History will be kind to me for I intend to write it'... The surest way for history to be kind to President Trump is for him to write it, by being the first leader to truly address the existential threat of EMP.

  • Sessions Pushes Back Against Republican Calls For Clinton, Comey Special Counsel

    Jeff Sessions testimony before the House Judiciary Committee was about as contentious as many observers probably expected, with Sessions jousting with lawmakers who pressed him about troubling omissions in his previous testimony. But nestled among questions about Sessions’ campaign-season interactions with Russian officials and former Trump campaign national security adviser George Papadopoulos, one lawmaker asked Sessions whether a report that the DOJ said it would approve AT&T’s proposed...

  • Federal Prosecutors Are Running Amok

    Authored by William Anderson via The Mises Institute, It is hard to know where to begin regarding the charges against Paul Manafort, the former campaign director for Donald Trump’s successful presidential bid, but having read the indictments and knowing some background about both the case and the investigation, I cannot say it is exactly a high point of American justice. In fact, when former FBI chief Robert Mueller first was appointed as a special prosecutor to look into the allegations that...

  • Who Killed President Kennedy And Why?

    Via Oriental Review, In late October President Trump ordered that “the veil be lifted” from the investigation into the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963. More than 3,000 new, previously classified FBI, CIA, and Congressional documents were released to the public. A quick overview of the material shows that the bulk of it pertains either to the CIA’s covert operations against Cuba (one of the most popular theories about JFK’s assassination focuses on the ties between Lee Harvey...

    After he was named in the grand jury indictment of Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, many in the media speculated that Special Counsel Robert Mueller might also be pursuing an indictment against Manafort’s estranged son-in-law, Jeffrey Yohai, who memorably accused his one-time father-in-law and financial backer of ‘conspiring’ to mislead a federal bankruptcy court back in September. While the speculation wasn’t wrong, the Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that prosecutors in a separate probe...

  • Of Red Lines & Lost Credibility

    Authored by Patrick Buchanan via Buchanan.org, A major goal of this Asia trip, said National Security Adviser H. R. McMaster, is to rally allies to achieve the “complete, verifiable and permanent denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.” Yet Kim Jong Un has said he will never give up his nuclear weapons. He believes the survival of his dynastic regime depends upon them. Hence we are headed for confrontation. Either the U.S. or North Korea backs down, as Nikita Khrushchev did in the Cuban...

    Having been caught in a crossfire over internet free speech and Russian conspiracy theories, Twitter has quietly made a significant change in its stated "Twitter Rules" terms of service.
