  • Rep. Andy Biggs: Prosecute Comey for instigating Mueller probe

    03/23/2019 5:55:56 PM PDT · by Magnatron
    Fox News ^ | 23 March 2019 | Rep. Andy Biggs
    Now that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation has been completed, it is time to seek justice. That means fired FBI Director James Comey and others responsible for instigating this farcical investigation for the sole purpose of undermining President Trump must be prosecuted. In addition, the interests of justice require that the full Mueller report be released with no redactions so that we, the American people, can read it and judge for ourselves. Failure to prosecute those within our law enforcement apparatus who abused their power for political purposes by launching a baseless investigation that has torn our country apart will...

    Republicans on the House Financial Services Committee are seeking to postpone consideration of marijuana banking legislation scheduled to be brought to vote next week by the panel’s Democratic chair, Rep. Maxine Waters of California. Ranking member Rep. Patrick McHenry of North Carolina and Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer of Missouri wrote Ms. Waters on Thursday raising concerns about Congress potentially passing the Secure And Fair Enforcement (SAFE) Banking Act, a bipartisan proposal meant to protect banks that work with marijuana businesses in weed-friendly states. “The impact that many state laws, which have legalized marijuana, have on the federal laws governing the manufacturing,...

    Democratic darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez still hasn’t paid a six-year-old tax bill left over from a failed business venture. Weeks after The Post alerted the freshman Congresswoman’s office to the outstanding tax lien from 2012, she still hasn’t paid it, state records show. Brook Avenue Press, a company set up in the Bronx to publish books about city children, owes $1,877.56 in unpaid corporate taxes. The state slapped the company with a warrant on July 6, 2017, two months after Ocasio-Cortez announced her candidacy to run against Democratic incumbent Joe Crowley for the district that encompasses parts of Queens and The...

    Somalia’s al Shabaab stormed a government building on Saturday, detonating a suicide car bomb in the heart of the capital Mogadishu with at least 15 people, including an assistant minister, killed during the ensuing gun battle. In the latest bombing claimed by al Shabaab, an Islamist group which is fighting to establish its own rule in Somalia, based on a strict interpretation of sharia law, a huge explosion shook central Mogadishu and a large plume of smoke rose above a building housing Somalia’s ministries of labor and works. Police later said the fighting at the building had ended and that...

    Chelsea Manning is being subjected to “effective” solitary confinement for refusing to cooperate with federal prosecutors investigating WikiLeaks, her supporters said Saturday. Manning’s support committee said the former Army analyst and WikiLeaks source has been isolated in a cell for 22 hours a day since being jailed more than two weeks ago for defying a subpoena seeking her testimony in front of a federal grand jury convened in Alexandria, Virginia. Sixteen days into her latest stint behind bars, Manning’s supporters said the conditions constitute “Prolonged Solitary” as defined by Juan Mendez, the United Nations special rapporteur on torture, and should...

    Catholic churches in France vandalized, set on fire & smeared with excrement There has been hostility to the Catholic Church in France for centuries, but this kind of thing did not happen. Could it have anything to do with the introduction into France of a large population of people who believe that Christianity is a false religion and that they are commanded to fight unbelievers so that Allah may punish them by the hands of the believers (cf. Qur’an 9:14-15)? Possibly not. But possibly. Catholic churches in France are being targeted with arson attacks, vandalism, desecration of holy statues, and...

    Hungary: Muslim “refugee” discovered to have beheaded 20 people for the Islamic State He was ordered expelled from Hungary after being caught with forged documents on December 30, but he was detained on Friday, so clearly he didn’t leave after he was expelled. Also he seems to have moved freely around Europe for quite some time. His story is evidence that European authorities are overwhelmed and cannot deal adequately with the Muslim migrant crisis they have inflicted upon themselves. “Hungary detains Syrian Islamic State member accused of killings,” Reuters, March 22, 2019 (thanks to The Religion of Peace): BUDAPEST (Reuters)...

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D.-Calif.) has pinned to the top of her Twitter feed a Tweet she sent out on March 16 noting that “white supremacy is rising around the globe” and stating that Americans “need a president who will speak truth and fight fort the people.” “The real national emergency is the failed leadership of this president,” Harris said in the Tweet. “Americans are dying in the streets from gun violence, too many are working more for less, and white supremacy is rising around the globe,” she said.

    Keep hope alive! Okay, yeah, the Mueller investigation looks like a bust, and won't produce any more indictments. But hey: there are still lots of other investigations out there! The dream continues! That was the theme of Joy Reid's MSNBC show this morning. Check out the mashup we've created, and you'll soon get the idea. From congressional investigations, to the Southern District of New York, it's investigations a go-go! The number of pending investigations was variously given as 16, 17, and even [facetiously, we presume] 47, according to David Korn! Get the rest of the story and view the video...

    Now that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has finished his report on Russia’s inference in our 2016 presidential election, Democratic congressional leaders have done something remarkable. In a dramatic flip-flop from their embrace of secrecy during the Obama administration, they now say: “Release the full report.” I never thought I would hear those words cross the lips of the same Democrats who took the polar opposite position when I and other Republicans in Congress made quite reasonable and legitimate requests for information during the term of Democratic President Obama. Yet on Friday, when Mueller submitted his report to Attorney General William...

    President Donald Trump was at his Florida club at Mar-a-Lago when the report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller was delivered on Friday. The news of no new indictments in the Mueller report was enough to cheer Trump supporters who attended a fundraiser hosted by Palm Beach County Republicans where Sen. Lindsey Graham was the keynote speaker. Both President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump briefly made an appearance at the fundraiser, thanking supporters and signaling their interest in what Graham had to say. The president and the first lady did not mention the Mueller report. “If Lindsey’s speaking, I want...

    Just another day in glorious, multicultural France. A French former prisoner who had converted to Islam while incarcerated was arrested after trying to have a sub-machine gun delivered to him by post. The 30-year-old, who was not identified by name, was arrested last week in the city of Angers in Western France at a local post office while attempting to pick up the firearm that had originally come from the United States, Le Parisien reports. On Friday, the man was indicted on charges of importing category A weapons, according to public prosecutor Yves Gambert. Local media also added that the...

Returning unexpectedly from a fishing trip in Tennessee to broadcast in the wake of news that the newly-released Mueller report will not include an indictment of President Donald Trump, Maddow spent the better part of her Friday night opening segment seemingly on the verge of tears.

    During Friday’s 1:00 p.m. ET hour, MSNBC anchors Stephanie Ruhle and Ali Velshi were aghast at Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Andrew Wheeler dismissing climate change fearmongering in a recent interview with CBS News. The hosts denounced his comments and even brought on former Obama administration EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy to blast him. “The Trump administration has managed to downplay the impact of climate change again. Andrew Wheeler, the new EPA administrator, insisted the effects of manmade global warming are not here yet,” Ruhle complained as she teed up a clip of Wheeler talking to CBS correspondent Major Garrett in an...

The journalists and lawyers were there to toast White House special counsel Lanny Davis. As the dismay over the Monica Lewinsky allegations was giving way to the realization that the President just might dodge the bullet, Mr. Davis was returning to private practice after 13 months in the service of Bill Clinton. Wall Street Journal investigative reporter Glenn Simpson congratulated Mr. Davis for leaving the White House during “a brief window of opportunity between scandals” and toasted...

    Roger Stone associate Jerome Corsi has said that the end of special counsel Robert Mueller' investigation is a personal vindication, after he refused to take a plea deal under threat of prosecution.With a senior Justice Department official saying that Mueller's final report submitted on Friday does not recommend further indictments, author and conspiracy theorist Corsi appears to be off the hook. 'I feel vindicated. They offered me a plea deal which I thought was fraudulent,' Corsi said in a statement to Fox News.In November, Corsi said he had refused to plead guilty to one count of perjury because he did not...
