Parents Outraged After NYC School Holds “Moment of Silence” For Hamas Terrorists
Monday, May 21, 2018 4:46 PM

A selective New York City public school had the brilliant idea to pause studies last week in remembrance of the Hamas terrorists who were killed at the Israel-Gaza border. The utter lack of awareness and the disgusting request has shocked students and parents alike as it seems, clearly, that a public, tax-funded, school is inserting itself into an anti-semantic debate.

This “moment of silence” for the Hamas terrorists came directly after Michael Oren, the Israeli Deputy Minister for Diplomacy and former ambassador stated continued criticisms of Israel are helping Hamas terrorists. One can only guess how he’d feel about an American school actually taking part in a “moment of silence” for them…

An outraged Jewish father told the New York Post, “I am extremely upset because I did not send my child to a New York City public school to pray for Hamas operatives.” Another parent stated, “I just don’t think any school should be promoting a moment of silence for terrorists. What if it was Islamic terrorists in ISIS? No school would be having that over the loudspeaker.”

It’s reported that the New York City *public* school has a history of left-wing ideology, with the school having previously given students permission to leave grounds in protest of Donald Trump’s presidential election.

More Via NY Post:

“As a Jewish student, I could see a lot of my Jewish friends get very weird when the moment of silence started,” Sophie Steinberg, a junior from Brooklyn, said about Tuesday’s tribute.

“They don’t know how to feel. They don’t know how to fit into all of this.”

Steinberg said the contemplative moment was not out of place at Beacon.

“I think that’s Beacon’s nature — to not be divisive but to bring up the things that no one wants to talk about,” she said.

But another student said she had hoped for more discussion surrounding the announcement which, she said, seemed to come out of nowhere.

“I wish there was that conversation afterwards,” said Fortune Ndombo, a junior from Manhattan. “There was no follow-up.”

Some parents say they’ve reached out to the principal, who has been unresponsive.

“We support civic engagement and advocacy amongst students, and encourage schools to provide inclusive environments where students are able to respectfully discuss current events,” a Department of Education spokesman said.

Trump, Conservatives Demand Investigation of ‘Hacked’ DNC Server
Monday, May 21, 2018 4:04 PM

As the special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election hit the one-year mark last week, President Trump and conservatives are demanding an investigation into why the allegedly hacked Democratic National Committee email server — the key piece of forensic evidence in Russia’s suspected interference in the 2016 presidential election, was never subpoenaed by the FBI.

The intelligence-community assessment released in January 2017 on purported Russian meddling in the race, conducted by the CIA, the FBI, and the NSA, concludes Russian President Vladimir Putin personally ordered the hacking of the DNC and the dissemination of emails from key staffers via WikiLeaks to damage Hillary Clinton’s candidacy.

The Steele dossier alleges Donald Trump was aware that the Democratic National Committee’s emails had been stolen before that was publicly known and was involved in their “strategic release” during the presidential campaign.

But the intelligence agencies attributing the sweeping cyber-intrusion to Russia-backed hackers have yet to provide any actual evidence.

Not a single government agency has even viewed the hacked computer servers to conduct a forensic data-breach investigation.

They never will. DNC officials refused to surrender to the server to the FBI for forensic examination, which would determine when and  where the hack transpired or whether the server was actually hacked.

Then-FBI Director James Comey said last year that the DNC had denied the bureau’s requests to examine the breached server. The Obama Justice Dept. never took custody of the server — no subpoena, no search warrant.

Instead the DNC hired private cyber security firm CrowdStrike to make replicas of the server’s data to provide to the FBI and destroyed the server.

The mainstream media have stubbornly clung to the Trump-Russia collusion narrative, peddling unsubstantiated claims that Trump colluded with Russia during the election. Yet, the purported victim of a crime refused to cooperate with law enforcement in solving that crime.

The server’s contents could have discredited the Russia-hacking story, argued former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer.

Roger Stone, former Trump campaign aide, argued on Meet the Press Sunday “I don’t even believe the Democratic National Committee was hacked.”

Michael Flynn Jr., the son of President Donald Trump’s former National Security Adviser, blasted Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee,  Sunday for claiming “there’s overwhelming evidence of Russian hacking of our elections.”

Many argued slain Democratic National Committee staff member Seth Rich was connected to the DNC leak.

Others questioned why leading members of the establishment media are ignoring the Awan Brothers, the three IT specialists fired for rooting through House Democrats’ sensitive files.

There May be an Impeachment in the Works… But it Won’t Be Trump
Monday, May 21, 2018 3:38 PM

Far left hack and historian Jon Meacham said Monday that he thinks impeachment will be the “season finale” to President Trump’s time in office.

Meachum made the courageous announcement on the Morning Joe echo chamber on Monday.

Meachum, the former Editor-in-Chief of leftwing Newsweek, may be on to something.
But he might be surprised with the final result.

It would be hard for the Deep State and their supporters in Congress to impeach President Trump for mean tweets.

It would not be hard for Congress to impeach Barack Obama for spying on the opposition candidate during a national election.

And that is where this story is heading.

We now know that the Obama administration used all of the resources of government to spy on his political enemy during the 2016 election. The Obama deep state event injected a spy into the Donald Trump campaign. This is unprecedented in US history.

On Sunday night Tom Fitton from Judicial Watch tweeted out to President Donald Trump that Barack Obama could still be impeached and barred from public office every again.

Jack Posobiec agreed with Fitton.

On Monday morning President Trump tweeted this out on his predecessor:

“The Wall Street Journal asks, “WHERE IN THE WORLD WAS BARACK OBAMA?” A very good question!”

There may be a case for impeachment in the near future.
But it won’t be President Trump.

White House Releases Statement on ‘The Violent Animals of MS-13’
Monday, May 21, 2018 2:22 PM

The White House has released a statement following Democrats choosing to defend MS-13 after President Donald Trump referred to the violent gang as “animals.”

The statement begins by correctly asserting that “the violent animals of MS-13 have committed heinous, violent attacks in communities across America.”

“At the State of the Union in January 2018, President Trump brought as his guests Elizabeth Alvarado, Robert Mickens, Evelyn Rodriguez, and Freddy Cuevas, the parents of Nisa Mickens and Kayla Cuevas.  Police believe these young girls were chased down and brutally murdered by MS-13 gang members on Long Island, New York, in 2016,” the statement reads.

It goes on to state that Suffolk County Police Commissioner said that the “murders show a level of brutality that is close to unmatched.” Nearly 40 percent of all murders in his county between January 2016 and June 2017 were tied to MS-13.

“In Maryland, MS-13’s animals are accused of stabbing a man more than 100 times and then decapitating him, dismembering him, and ripping his heart out of his body. Police believe MS-13 members in Maryland also savagely beat a 15-year-old human trafficking victim. The MS-13 animals used a bat and took turns beating her nearly 30 times in total,” the statement continues.

The White House remind people that “in Houston, Texas, two MS-13 members were charged after kidnapping and sexually assaulting one girl and murdering another. The two MS-13 animals laughed, smiled, and waved for cameras in court as they faced the charges.”

The extremely brutal transnational gang’s motto is “aata, roba, viola, controla’”(Kill, steal, rape, control), yet Democratic pundits and politicians feigned outrage that Trump would dare to “dehumanize” them.”

“In January 2017, MS-13 members were charged with killing and hacking up a teenager in Nassau County. MS-13’s animals reportedly saw the murder as a way to boost their standing in the gang. In April 2017, police believe four young men were brutally murdered by MS-13 animals on Long Island. One victim was a young man in town visiting family during an Easter week vacation. Just last month, in April 2018, MS-13 reportedly called for its members on Long Island to kill a cop for the sake of making a statement,” the White House noted.

The White House concluded the statement by asserting that “President Trump’s entire Administration is working tirelessly to bring these violent animals to justice.”

Press Secretary Sarah Sanders has previously stated that calling these gangsters “animals” wasn’t going far enough.

Outspoken Porn Star Lawyer Michael Avenatti Connected to Anti-Trump FBI Spies in UK
Monday, May 21, 2018 2:10 PM

Guest post by Joe Hoft

Obamagate is getting more sinister by the day. Information is now available showing a connection between the creepy porn star lawyer Avenatti with FBI spies in the UK and the connection is through a spy from Saudi Arabia!

Julian Assange from WikiLeaks shared a series of tweets in March of 2018 about one of the spies involved in Obamagate, Joseph Misfud. In one of his tweets, Assange tweets that “Misfud worked in Riyadh for a “think tank” run by the former head of Saudi intelligence, Prince Turki al Faisal. (BBC)”

Mufsud is one of three individuals with ties to British and/or U.S. Intelligence who appears to have targeted  George Papadopoulos, the lower level campaign worker for the Trump campaign, in 2016.  The other individuals with Joseph Mifsud are Alexander Downer and Stefan Halper.

Mifsud and Papadopoulos obtained positions at an organization named the Centre for International Energy and Natural Resources Law & Security. Papadopoulos was a ‘nobody’ and the Centre sketchy at best. Mifsud vanished in early November 2017, shortly after Papadopoulos was in the news and indicted. His whereabouts are still unknown.

Although the common story is that Mifsud is a Russian Agent, many ties seem to lead [him] back to UK Intelligence. Julian Assange’s Twitter Thread notes the connection between Mifsud and UK Intelligence.

Porn star Stormy Daniels’ creepy attorney Michael Avenatti also has ties to Saudi Prince Turki al Faisal.  Avenatti and the Prince’s son raced together in some major car races.

In addition the Saudi Prince was a big donor to the Clinton Foundation (note it’s illegal to accept donations from foreigners in a political campaign in the US.) –

So now we have the UK and Saudi Arabia meddling in the 2016 US Presidential election!  This scandal keeps getting bigger and bigger and more corrupt.

TRUMP Goes After Liberal Hack JOHN BRENNAN: This Guy Is Genesis of this Whole Debacle… A Political Hit Job
Monday, May 21, 2018 1:26 PM

Former CIA Director-turned-Twitter troll, John Brennan lashed out at Trump on Sunday evening after the President ordered the DOJ to investigate the FBI’s infiltration of his campaign.

Brennan also fired a warning shot to House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, claiming they will ‘bear the majority of the responsibility of the harm done to our democracy’ if they don’t stop Trump.

John Brennan warned Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell after Trump ordered the DOJ to review the FBI’s infiltration of his campaign.

Brennan tweeted: Senator McConnell & Speaker Ryan: If Mr. Trump continues along this disastrous path, you will bear major responsibility for the harm done to our democracy. You do a great disservice to our Nation & the Republican Party if you continue to enable Mr. Trump’s self-serving actions.

Brennan also sent out a peculiar cryptic threat to President Trump earlier on Sunday that had Twitter buzzing:

On Monday morning former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino went on FOX and Friends and went after John Brennan.

Shortly after Bongino’s appearance President Trump tweeted out the transcript — and called Brennan’s bluff.

President Trump:  John Brennan is panicking. He has disgraced himself, he has disgraced the Country, he has disgraced the entire Intelligence Community. He is the one man who is largely responsible for the destruction of American’s faith in the Intelligence Community and in some people at the top of the FBI. Brennan started this entire debacle about President Trump. We now know that Brennan had detailed knowledge of the (phony) Dossier…he knows about the Dossier, he denies knowledge of the Dossier, he briefs the Gang of 8 on the Hill about the Dossier, which they then used to start an investigation about Trump. It is that simple. This guy is the genesis of this whole Debacle. This was a Political hit job, this was not an Intelligence Investigation. Brennan has disgraced himself, he’s worried about staying out of Jail.” Dan Bongino

Freedom Caucus Chair Mark Meadows Demands Documents From Rosenstein: ‘The DOJ Can’t Be Trusted to Investigate Themselves’
Monday, May 21, 2018 4:54 AM

Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-NC) said the Justice Department cannot be trusted to investigate themselves and demanded Rosenstein turn over pertinent Trump-Russia documents to Congress.

As previously reported by TGP’s Kristinn Taylor, President Trump tweeted Sunday afternoon he is ordering the Justice Department to investigate whether the Obama administration spied on his 2016 presidential campaign.

The order comes on the heels of leaks to the New York Times and Washington Post that the Obama administration had an “informant” make several approaches to three Trump campaign officials, included one that involved an offer of cash and another an offer to “advise” the campaign.

Trump tweeted: I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes – and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!

On Sunday evening, the Justice Department asked Inspector General Horowitz to investigate whether there was “impropriety or political motivation” into the FBI’s infiltration of Trump’s campaign.

Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows doesn’t believe the DOJ can be trusted to investigate themselves and blasted Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein.

Mark Meadows tweeted: This is the right call from @realDonaldTrump–we’ve seen disturbing evidence that the FBI engaged in political targeting.

But the DOJ can’t be trusted to investigate themselves–Congress needs the documents too. Rod Rosenstein: where are the documents? Show Americans the truth.

President Trump, Rep. Mark Meadows and other members of the Freedom Caucus are on the front lines fighting the Deep State while AG Sessions is AWOL.

On Wednesday, with the backing of Rep. Ron DeSantis and Rep. Jim Jordan, Rep. Meadows sent President Trump a letter requesting he use his Presidential powers to instruct AG Sessions to declassify and release ALL FISA abuse documents and the unredacted Rosenstein memo detailing Mueller’s scope.

“In the year that has passed since these committments were made, the Department of Justice has failed to fully comply with regular and repeated Congressional requests and subpoenas. Our power as Congress to conduct investigations is broad, inherent and mandated by the Constitution. As a separate and equal branch of government, we have a constitutional right to these documents,” Meadows said in his letter to President Trump.

Rep. Meadows requested documents related to FISA abuses, documents related to the initial investigation into Trump’s camp before the Special Counsel was appointed, and the unredacted August 2nd memo penned by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein detailing Mueller’s scope.

Chairman Meadows is correct. The leaky DOJ cannot be trusted to investigate themselves; the American people deserve answers.

David Hogg Slams Oliver North for Blaming Drugs on School Shootings, Accuses NRA Head of Bringing Cocaine to US
Monday, May 21, 2018 12:59 AM

Parkland gun control activist David Hogg blasted incoming NRA President Oliver North’s comments attributing pharmaceutical drugs for school shootings.

North argued on Fox News Sunday that a “culture of violence” and Ritalin are the root cause for school shootings such as the one in Santa Fe Friday, not the proliferation of weapons.

“We’re trying like the dickens to treat the symptoms without treating the disease,” North told Fox News host Chris Wallace. “The disease in this case isn’t the Second Amendment. The disease is youngsters who are steeped in a culture of violence.”

Administering children chemicals that affect their brain or function might, over time, result in detrimental behavioral changes, the newly-minted president of the NRA lamented.

“They’ve been drugged in many cases,” he said. “Nearly all of these perpetrators are male. … Many of these young boys have been on Ritalin since they were in kindergarten.”

Over the last 20 years, the perpetrators of nearly all the deadliest mass shooting in the United States have shared one of two traits: Besides killing innocents with firearms, they either were Muslims or were using mind-altering psychiatric drugs.

Moms Demand Action Founder Shannon Watts slammed North’s assessment.

“American teens watch the same movies and play the same video games as their peers in other high-income countries,” Watts tweeted. “What’s different? They have easy access to arsenals and ammo.”

Firing back on North’s drugged claims, Hogg, responding to Watts’ tweet, accusing the NRA head of aiding and abetting the trafficking of cocaine into the United States in the 1980’s during the Iran-Contra scandal.

Obama, Clinton Pastors and US Bishop Who ‘Stole Show’ at Royal Wedding Set to March on White House to ‘Reclaim Jesus’ from Pres. Trump; ‘America First is Heresy Against Christ’
Monday, May 21, 2018 12:01 AM

A theological who’s who of Leftist Christian leaders are organizing a march on the White House to ‘Reclaim Jesus’ from President Donald Trump that is set for the evening of May 24. One of the leaders of the anti-Trump march is Rev. Michael Bruce Curry who ‘stole the show‘ with his lengthy sermon at the British royal wedding on Saturday between Prince Harry and American Meghan Markle. Three march organizers were spiritual advisors to President Barack Obama while one counseled President Bill Clinton during the Lewinsky scandal and later endorsed Hillary Clinton for president in 2016.

The Reclaiming Jesus campaign is a response by Leftist Christians infuriated by President Trump’s continuing strong support from white evangelical Christians who overwhelmingly voted for (81 percent) in the 2016 presidential election

A statement and video for the Reclaiming Jesus campaign state Trump’s America First policies are “theological heresy for followers of Christ.”

#event" rel="noopener" target="_blank">The description of the march from the Reclaiming Jesus website.

Thursday, May 24th, 7 p.m., National City Christian Church (5 Thomas Circle, Washington, DC 20005)
We believe two things are at stake: the soul of the nation, and the integrity of faith. We believe the issues are more deeply theological than merely political or partisan. We believe it is a time for prayer and response, for contemplation and action.

In this moment of political, moral, and theological crisis in America we are deeply concerned about the resurgence of white nationalism, racism, and xenophobia; misogyny; attacks on immigrants, refugees, and the poor; the regular purveying of falsehoods and consistent lying by the nation’s highest leaders; and moves toward autocratic political leadership and authoritarian rule.

We invite you to join us for a service of prayer and gospel proclamation, followed by a procession to the White House and a silent prayerful candlelight vigil as a witness that the church will not be complicit, but faithful.

The full Reclaiming Jesus proclamation (excerpted below) contains the ‘America First is heresy’ statement.

In 2009 the New York Times reported Rev. Otis Moss, Jr., Rev. Joel C. Hunter and Rev. Jim Wallis were among a group chosen to be spiritual advisors for President Barack Obama. Obama had to abandon his church of twenty years in order to win the presidency because of the controversial sermons of Rev. Jeremiah Wright and was without a pastor.

Rev. Tony Campolo counseled President Bill Clinton during the Monica Lewinsky scandal where it was revealed Clinton would return to the White House from Easter Sunday service at a nearby church and met Lewinsky for oral sex in the Oval Office.

In 2016, Campolo endorsed his “personal friend” Hillary Clinton for president and spoke at her nominating convention where he said, “…On this memorable night, we pray for Hillary Clinton. May her candidacy send a message to women everywhere that the glass ceiling that has held so many of them down is being broken, and that a new day is dawning, not only for women, but for all people everywhere. We ask all these things in Your holy name. Amen.”

Background on Bill Clinton’s Easter servicing by Monica Lewinsky:

April 7, 1996, Easter Sunday. Hillary Clinton had no public schedule. Lewinsky said later that, at the president’s suggestion, she performed oral sex while he was on the telephone in his office.”

April 7, 1996…it was Easter, and as was the Clinton family custom, the President, accompanied by his wife and Chelsea, attended the 11 A.M. service at the Foundry Methodist Church…At 4:56 P.M., according to White House logs, Ms. Lewinsky arrived at the White House carrying a manila folder and, under the pretext of delivering documents to the President, was admitted to the Oval Office. She met with the President in his private study…she began a sexual encounter with him in the hallway between the private study and the Oval Office…Mr. Clinton picked up the call in the study, directing Ms. Lewinsky to continue her sexual actions with him while he spoke on the phone. According to White House records cited in the report, the call lasted nine minutes and was from Mr. Morris, the political consultant…”

Excerpts from the Reclaiming Jesus statement

We are living through perilous and polarizing times as a nation, with a dangerous crisis of moral and political leadership at the highest levels of our government and in our churches. We believe the soul of the nation and the integrity of faith are now at stake.

It is time to be followers of Jesus before anything else—nationality, political party, race, ethnicity, gender, geography—our identity in Christ precedes every other identity. We pray that our nation will see Jesus’ words in us. “By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:35).

When politics undermines our theology, we must examine that politics. The church’s role is to change the world through the life and love of Jesus Christ. The government’s role is to serve the common good by protecting justice and peace, rewarding good behavior while restraining bad behavior (Romans 13). When that role is undermined by political leadership, faith leaders must stand up and speak out. Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said, “The church must be reminded that it is not the master or the servant of the state, but rather the conscience of the state.”

It is often the duty of Christian leaders, especially elders, to speak the truth in love to our churches and to name and warn against temptations, racial and cultural captivities, false doctrines, and political idolatries—and even our complicity in them. We do so here with humility, prayer, and a deep dependency on the grace and Holy Spirit of God…

…WE REJECT the resurgence of white nationalism and racism in our nation on many fronts, including the highest levels of political leadership. We, as followers of Jesus, must clearly reject the use of racial bigotry for political gain that we have seen. In the face of such bigotry, silence is complicity. In particular, we reject white supremacy and commit ourselves to help dismantle the systems and structures that perpetuate white preference and advantage. Further, any doctrines or political strategies that use racist resentments, fears, or language must be named as public sin—one that goes back to the foundation of our nation and lingers on. Racial bigotry must be antithetical for those belonging to the body of Christ, because it denies the truth of the gospel we profess…

…WE REJECT misogyny, the mistreatment, violent abuse, sexual harassment, and assault of women that has been further revealed in our culture and politics, including our churches, and the oppression of any other child of God. We lament when such practices seem publicly ignored, and thus privately condoned, by those in high positions of leadership. We stand for the respect, protection, and affirmation of women in our families, communities, workplaces, politics, and churches. We support the courageous truth-telling voices of women, who have helped the nation recognize these abuses. We confess sexism as a sin, requiring our repentance and resistance…

…WE REJECT misogyny, the mistreatment, violent abuse, sexual harassment, and assault of women that has been further revealed in our culture and politics, including our churches, and the oppression of any other child of God. We lament when such practices seem publicly ignored, and thus privately condoned, by those in high positions of leadership. We stand for the respect, protection, and affirmation of women in our families, communities, workplaces, politics, and churches. We support the courageous truth-telling voices of women, who have helped the nation recognize these abuses. We confess sexism as a sin, requiring our repentance and resistance…

…WE REJECT the language and policies of political leaders who would debase and abandon the most vulnerable children of God. We strongly deplore the growing attacks on immigrants and refugees, who are being made into cultural and political targets, and we need to remind our churches that God makes the treatment of the “strangers” among us a test of faith (Leviticus 19:33-34)…

…WE REJECT any moves toward autocratic political leadership and authoritarian rule. We believe authoritarian political leadership is a theological danger that threatens democracy and the common good—and we will resist it. Disrespect for the rule of law, not recognizing the equal importance of our three branches of government, and replacing civility with dehumanizing hostility toward opponents are of great concern to us. Neglecting the ethic of public service and accountability, in favor of personal recognition and gain often characterized by offensive arrogance, are not just political issues for us. They raise deeper concerns about political idolatry, accompanied by false and unconstitutional notions of authority…

…WE REJECT “America first” as a theological heresy for followers of Christ. While we share a patriotic love for our country, we reject xenophobic or ethnic nationalism that places one nation over others as a political goal…”

The statement which is all about Leftist politics, closes by saying it is not about politics and cloaks itself in Christian faith.

Our urgent need, in a time of moral and political crisis, is to recover the power of confessing our faith. Lament, repent, and then repair. If Jesus is Lord, there is always space for grace. We believe it is time to speak and to act in faith and conscience, not because of politics, but because we are disciples of Jesus Christ—to whom be all authority, honor, and glory. It is time for a fresh confession of faith. Jesus is Lord. He is the light in our darkness. “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” (John 8:12).

John Brennan Fires Warning Shot to Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell After Trump Orders DOJ to Investigate FBI’s Campaign Infiltration
Sunday, May 20, 2018 11:29 PM

Former CIA Director-turned-Twitter troll, John Brennan lashed out at Trump on Sunday evening after the President ordered the DOJ to investigate the FBI’s infiltration of his campaign.

Brennan also fired a warning shot to House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, claiming they will ‘bear the majority of the responsibility of the harm done to our democracy’ if they don’t stop Trump.

As previously reported by TGP’s Kristinn Taylor, President Trump tweeted Sunday afternoon he is ordering the Justice Department to investigate whether the Obama administration spied on his 2016 presidential campaign.

The order comes on the heels of leaks to the New York Times and Washington Post that the Obama administration had an “informant” make several approaches to three Trump campaign officials, included one that involved an offer of cash and another an offer to “advise” the campaign.

Trump tweeted: “I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes — and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!” the president tweeted.

John Brennan warned Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell after Trump ordered the DOJ to review the FBI’s infiltration of his campaign.

Brennan tweeted: Senator McConnell & Speaker Ryan: If Mr. Trump continues along this disastrous path, you will bear major responsibility for the harm done to our democracy. You do a great disservice to our Nation & the Republican Party if you continue to enable Mr. Trump’s self-serving actions.

Brennan also sent out a peculiar cryptic tweet earlier on Sunday that had Twitter buzzing:

John Brennan is in hot water which is why he continues to lash out at President Trump from his Twitter account.

Brennan is caught in a perjury trap over his statements about Hillary’s phony dossier in a May 2017 testimony to the intel panel.

Obama’s former CIA chief was also involved in setting up Russian espionage traps for minor players in Trump’s camp, according the investigative reporter, Paul Sperry.

On Sunday evening, the DOJ asked Inspector General to probe any alleged “impropriety or political motivation” into the FBI’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

BREAKING: DOJ Asks IG Horowitz to Investigate Possible “Impropriety or Political Motivation” After Trump Demands Probe on FBI Campaign Infiltration
Sunday, May 20, 2018 10:57 PM

On Sunday evening, the Justice Department asked Inspector General Horowitz to investigate whether there was “impropriety or political motivation” into the FBI’s infiltration of Trump’s campaign.

This came just hours after President Trump demanded a review of whether Obama’s Deep State FBI did indeed spy on his campaign. 

As previously reported by TGP’s Kristinn Taylor, President Trump tweeted Sunday afternoon he is ordering the Justice Department to investigate whether the Obama administration spied on his 2016 presidential campaign.

The order comes on the heels of leaks to the New York Times and Washington Post that the Obama administration had an “informant” make several approaches to three Trump campaign officials, included one that involved an offer of cash and another an offer to “advise” the campaign.

Trump tweeted: “I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes — and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!” the president tweeted.

Trump should not have had to do this.
This was the duty of his Attorney General.
But, once again, Jeff Sessions is AWOL.

Hours later, the DOJ asked Inspector General to probe any alleged “impropriety or political motivation” into the FBI’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Fox News reported:

The Justice Department asked its watchdog to look into any alleged “impropriety or political motivation” in the FBI’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election, the DOJ said Sunday night — hours after President Trump ordered a review looking into whether federal agents infiltrated or surveilled his campaign for political purposes.

“The Department has asked the Inspector General to expand the ongoing review of the (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) application process to include determining whether there was any impropriety or political motivation in how the FBI conducted its counterintelligence investigation of persons suspected of involvement with the Russian agents who interfered in the 2016 presidential election. As always, the Inspector General will consult with the appropriate U.S. Attorney if there is any evidence of potential criminal conduct,” DOJ spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores told Fox News.

She also released a response from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein: “If anyone did infiltrate or surveil participants in a presidential campaign for inappropriate purposes, we need to know about it and take appropriate action.”

Reports so far indicate Stefan Halper, who is believed to be one of the FBI informants who infiltrated Trump’s camp, enticed George Papadopoulos with cash to get him to London.

The Obama FBI, DOJ, and DOJ was spying on Trump before they officially opened their investigation.

The Deep State lies and lies and lies… And then lies some more.

HUGE! Email Shows FBI ‘Informant’ Stefan Halper Was Still Spying on Trump Well Into 2017
Sunday, May 20, 2018 10:26 PM

It has been widely reported that the Obama administration had a spy working inside the Trump campaign.

As previously reported internet sleuths have determined the identity of the FBI spy inside the Trump campaign.

Jeff Carlson at theMarketswork on Thursday put together a piece where he places an individual by the name of Stefan Halper as a potential FBI spy into the Trump campaign. (Note that some believe that Obama may have had more than one spy on the Trump campaign).

It was a lucrative business for Stefan Halper.

Internet sleuth Jacob Wohl discovered that Stefan Halper was paid $282,295 in September 2016 for “research and development in the social sciences and humanities.”

Another Twitter sleuth identified a second payment to Halper in the amount of $129,280 making the total payments to Halper more than $400,000 from President Obama’s Administration to spy on the future President of the United States.

Stefan Halper was paid a total of $411,575 in 2016 and 2017 for work with the US government that included spying on the Trump campaign.

Now this…

It looks like Halper was still working for the Deep State well into 2017 after President Trump was in office.

Carter Page, who was spied on by the Obama DOJ and FBI, published an email he received from Stefan Halper in July 2017.
Halper was still reaching out to Carter Page well into 2017.

Here’s Why Devin Nunes and Trey Gowdy Ignored Invitation to Meet With Leaky DOJ and Rosenstein on Friday
Sunday, May 20, 2018 9:48 PM

As previously reported, Chairman of the House Intel Committee Devin Nunes (R-CA) and Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Trey Gowdy (R-SC) were invited to meet with Rosenstein, Wray and Senior Intel staff Friday morning.

A senior DOJ official told Fox News that Nunes and Gowdy had not responded to their invite as of Thursday evening.

On Sunday, Nunes revealed why he refused to meet with the leaky DOJ on Friday.

On Thursday, Fox News producer, Jake Gibson reported a DOJ official claimed Nunes and Gowdy had not responded to the invitation extended to them for a Friday morning briefing.

Gibson tweeted: Senior DOJ Official:
Earlier in the week (Tuesday), we offered Chairmen Nunes and Gowdy a meeting for Friday morning with the Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, FBI Director Chris Wray, and senior Intelligence Community staff. They have not responded to our invite.

This was a strange development considering Nunes and Gowdy have been hounding Rosenstein to gain access to pertinent Mueller documents including the Rosenstein memo.

Nunes accused the DOJ of not only leaking to the media, but he confirmed once again they are playing games and wouldn’t give him the documents he requested.

Chairman Nunes appeared on Fox News’ Sunday Futures with Maria Bartiromo and told her “We’re not going to go to another meeting where we don’t get documents and then the meeting leaks out. This should make people very suspicious – they were trying to get Mr. Gowdy & I to go on Friday to the Justice Department for supposedly another briefing.”

Did Nunes just hint Rod Rosenstein and or FBI Director Christopher Wray of being the possible leakers?

Nunes also told Maria Bartiromo had he and Gowdy gone to Friday’s meeting with the DOJ, the recent leaks about the FBI informant embedded in Trump’s campaign would have been blamed on them.

The Deep State has viciously gone after Nunes and blamed him for leaking time and time again.

Nunes skipped Friday’s meeting and DOJ/FBI sources still managed to leak information to the stenographers at the New York Times and Washington Post about the FBI informant.

String Of Scandals Rock Portland Public Schools
Sunday, May 20, 2018 9:21 PM

Sex abuse, lawyers practicing without a law license, intentionally underestimating maintenance costs to pass tax hike ballot measures, superintendents resigning and getting fired, dismal graduation rates…

Welcome to what has become of Portland Public Schools. And it didn’t even take an undercover James O’Keefe sting to reveal all of this.

Let’s start with the most shocking revelation; PPS covered up a 32 year habitual sex abuse scandal involving a teacher, who allegedly routinely sexually harassed teenagers over the course of his career. School officials looked the other way and were afraid of getting on the bad side of the teachers’ union. They even referenced a policy that restricted what PPS officials could tell other potential employers who were looking at hiring the guy.

#incart_breaking" target="_blank">The Oregonian reports:

Portland Public Schools fielded report after report that educator Mitch Whitehurst engaged in sexual misconduct with students, starting the very first year of his 32-year career, a damning investigation released Thursday says.

In fall 2017, the Portland school board hired a team of investigators, hand-picked for their expertise, to examine how district employees treated Whitehurst. The board did so in response to an August 2017 Oregonian/OregonLive investigation, “Benefit of the Doubt: How Portland Public Schools helped an educator evade allegations of sexual misconduct.”

The investigative team interviewed more than 100 people and had access to thousands more records than The Oregonian did. It found evidence school administrators and school police knew Whitehurst was a problem from almost the very beginning. Yet he went on to work at more than a half dozen schools.

Investigators also found additional student victims not previously known to the public, called out specific officials by name for their inadequate actions, and determined that the district and law enforcement should have stopped Whitehurst’s abuse earlier.

District practices and priorities to this day lead to chronic underreporting of sexual misconduct, investigators found. Children suffer from a school district culture where employees look for reasons not to act and stick to the bare minimum of what they feel is required of them, investigators found.

In his very first year at Portland Public Schools, 1982-83, Whitehurst breached boundaries with students so noticeably that a vice principal reported his conduct to school police. The next year, a mother at the second Portland high school where he worked complained Whitehurst had engaged in sexual activity with students, and the vice principal there also reported his conduct to school police. In the late 1990s, school police were again called to investigate a student complaint about him, this time at Marshall High. By the time Marshall student Rose Soto told police and a vice principal in 2001 that Whitehurst said he wanted to unzip her pants and take her to a hotel, it was the fourth time the district heard a credible complaint that he violated student boundaries — and did nothing.

Investigators also fault the district’s top lawyer of many years, Jollee Patterson, for key lapses that let Whitehurst slide. Unlike many others, she knew of multiple credible reports of sexual misconduct yet failed to act or ensure others did.

Thursday’s report noted that time and again employees focused on reasons they could not act to stop Whitehurst instead of seeking ways to act. Investigators found district employees were quick to point fingers at others and explain that they didn’t feel it was their job to act.

The investigators found principals and other administrators generally avoided disciplining teachers and other union members in the absence of clear-cut evidence of wrongdoing because of concerns the teacher’s union would make it too drawn out and difficult. That reluctance was particularly acute when it came to alleged sexual misconduct, they found. The standard, they wrote, became to avoid documentation and other key practices that experts deem essential best practices to protect children from abuse.

Portland Public Schools never punished Whitehurst for his conduct with students. Whitehurst only resigned under pressure in 2015 after a male district employee complained Whitehurst had offensively touched him. Whitehurst was charged with harassment and pleaded guilty.

Even the way Whitehurst left the district was problematic and could have led to more children being harmed, investigators found. Whitehurst struck a deal, not uncommon in the district, that restricted what the district could tell other employers.

Before the teacher licensing agency revoked his license, Whitehurst planned to teach elsewhere.

The practice of agreeing to keep quiet about former employees’ questionable conduct, investigators found, enabled at least one other teacher, Norm Scott, to go on to another job and harm students. The former Grant High teacher was convicted in October of sexually touching six Oregon City middle schoolers in a single day while substitute teaching.

Read the full report HERE.

This is hardly the only scandal the PPS has dealt with in recent times. Just last month the school district settled a $1.4 Million lawsuit due to racial harassment and threats that some employees were experiencing.

During that lawsuit case, it was discovered that the school district’s top lawyer, Jim Harris, didn’t actually have a state bar number and was not legally licensed to practice law in Oregon:

Portland Public Schools top lawyer isn’t licensed to practice law in Oregon despite being on staff since June. Now he is quitting the job that requires him to hold that credential.

Jim Harris resigned after less than six months on the job, Superintendent Guadalupe Guerrero announced Monday.

The Oregon State Bar informed Harris on Nov. 9 that it is investigating whether he illegally practiced law by serving as the school district’s general counsel without being admitted to practice in Oregon.

District spokesman Dave Northfield was adamant Tuesday that Harris’ exit had nothing to do with his lack of a proper license. He told The Oregonian/OregonLive Harris expects to be admitted to the Oregon bar later this month.

School board chair Julia Brim-Edwards only learned about Harris’ lack of credential recently. She asked this month that Harris not sit with the board or advise them during meetings until he became an Oregon Bar member.

“The lack of licensing was a surprise and now that I am aware of it, it wouldn’t be appropriate to continue to have the board advised at a public meeting by an individual who is not currently licensed to practice in Oregon,” Brim-Edwards wrote to the district’s director of human resources. “This request is not based on any particular issue with the individual in the (general counsel) role, rather it is a matter of professional best practice.”

Earlier this month, Guerrero fired his second-in-command, Deputy Chief Operating Officer Yousef Awwad. According to a spokesman, Guerrero took that step “to begin building a new leadership team that complements his leadership style.”

The district is also in the midst of recruiting a new deputy superintendent of instruction and new chief academic officer.

The reason for Harris’ departure is unknown. Guerrero said Harris will continue to work for Portland schools for a couple weeks to help Large transition into the role. Guerrero wrote in his email that Harris “intends to pursue a career opportunity closer to his home on the East Coast.”

In a story for the Portland Tribune, one legal expert elaborates on this problem:

An expert in professional conduct for lawyers says the fact that Portland Public Schools’ new general counsel, Jim Harris, lacks a license to practice in Oregon is a problem that likely violates state ethics rules.

“It’s pretty simple,” Lucian Pera, a nationally recognized expert on legal ethics, tells the Portland Tribune. “You’ve got to be recognized by a jurisdiction somehow before you can act as a lawyer.”

While unlicensed, Harris appeared in Multnomah County Circuit Court alongside outside lawyers for PPS as the district’s general counsel, and PPS’s website has listed him in that position as well.

Pera, the national expert based in Tennessee, said the Oregon Bar would likely question whether Harris was practicing “temporarily.” He moved here, had an office with Portland Public Schools, sat at the table for lawyers representing PPS in Multnomah County Circuit Court this summer and offered legal advice to members of the school board.

“A number of jurisdictions would not consider that temporary,” said Pera.

Guadalupe Guerrero is the current Superintendent of PPS, having been on the job since October of 2017. We’ll see how long he lasts. Barely a month into his job, he fired deputy superintendent Yousef Awwad after it was discovered that Awwad was lying to the school board about the health safety of two new schools.

One of Guerrero’s first big hires was his friend Luis Valentino, who had previously been fired by the Albuquerque school district after only two months on the job as superintendent, in the wake of several scandals that he was involved with. Valentino was given a $100,000 payout after he hired a deputy superintendent who was up on FOUR felony charges related to child sex abuse, as well as plotting to oust the district’s chief financial officer.

The previous full time Superintendent of Portland Public Schools, Carole Smith, resigned following the discovery of mass lead and radon contamination at several schools that the district had known about for six years. In fact, it took over a year and a half for officials to correct the problem. The lead in the drinking water was discovered in May of 2016, and when the 2017 school year started, students were still not allowed to use the water fountains. They had a year and a half, which included two summer vacations, to fix the issue. And they couldn’t do it.

After Smith’s resignation, interim Superintendent Bob McKean was set to hire an attorney for the school district who had previously plead no contest to violating public records laws. McKean went on to oversee new pay raises for himself and 30 other admins, upwards of $18,000 each, on top of a $166,000 salary, while they laid off 70 teachers.

The aforementioned  Yousef Awwad took over for McKean as interim Superintendent after McKean quit in July of 2017. Awwad was also caught in a controversy alleging that he had a sexual relationship with a subordinate. This was the second time Awwad served as interim Superintendent.

After Awwad went on medical leave, assistant Superintendent Antonio Lopez took over as interim interim Superintendent in the fall of 2017.

On top of all this, voters have approved multiple tax hiking bond measures for the school district, with the most recent one already over $89 Million over the approved $750 Million bonds. And some say that district officials knew that it would go over budget as they were putting it on the ballots.

Oh yeah, they also paid a teacher $139,000 to NOT teach for 2 years because he kept getting arrested for a myriad of different charges, including domestic abuse, violating restraining orders, driving drunk, and more. They even paid him an additional $19,000 as part of a severance package.

This is all so Oregon can have the 3rd worst graduation rates in the country.

And these people are the ones trusted with educating children. I can think of a better role in public service these people can serve, and it involves bright orange attire.

John Brennan’a Latest Cryptic Tweet Has People Asking ‘Is This a Threat to Trump?’
Sunday, May 20, 2018 7:58 PM

Former CIA Director-turned-Twitter-troll, John Brennan sent out a cryptic tweet on Sunday quoting Cicero which had many wondering if he sent out a thinly veiled threat to Trump.

John Brennan is in hot water which is why he continues to lash out at President Trump from his Twitter account.

Brennan is caught in a perjury trap over his statements about Hillary’s phony dossier in a May 2017 testimony to the intel panel.

Obama’s former CIA chief was also involved in setting up Russian espionage traps for minor players in Trump’s camp, according the investigative reporter, Paul Sperry.

Brennan posted a cryptic tweet Sunday which had Twitter buzzing.

Brennan tweeted: “Any man can make mistakes, but only an idiot persists in his error.”

Marcus Tullius Cicero, (106-43 BC)

Brennan’s latest tweet has people asking, ‘is this a threat?’

This Has Not Aged Well: Jake Tapper Condemns President Trump for Accusing Obama of Spying on His Campaign (VIDEO)
Sunday, May 20, 2018 7:30 PM

This didn’t age well.
Jake Tapper lambasted the American public in 2017 for believing Obama spied on Trump.

Jake Tapper: We noticed some numbers that alarmed us today.  They appeared in an ABC-Washington Post poll.  Showing a shockingly high percentage of Americans believe President Obama intentionally spied on Donald Trump and members of his campaign.  

This was after President Trump accused Barack Obama of spying on Trump Tower.

Tapper continued: If McCarthyism is defined as making wild accusations without any evidence, the only thing that were McCarthyism were the president’s tweets.

Of course, now we know that Trump was absolutely correct and that the Obama administration was not only spying on Trump Tower but they even implanted a spy into his campaign.

Sorry Jake Tapper.

What? Ben Shapiro Defends FBI Deep State Spy Inside Trump Campaign
Sunday, May 20, 2018 7:03 PM

Never trust never Trump.

Ben Shapiro defended the FBI’s spy campaign against President Trump this week saying it would not be scandalous for an informant to meet with campaign aides who were talking to Russians.

President Trump took to his Twitter account this week after the New York Times rolled out their FBI puff piece admitting at least one informant was embedded in Trump’s campaign.

Trump tweeted: Reports are there was indeed at least one FBI representative implanted, for political purposes, into my campaign for president. It took place very early on, and long before the phony Russia Hoax became a “hot” Fake News story. If true – all time biggest political scandal!

Ben Shapiro attacked the President and defended the Deep State spy embedded in Trump’s campaign.

Shapiro tweeted: Why? If campaign aides were meeting with Russian cut outs and then bragging about it (see Papadapolous), why would it be scandalous for an informant to meet with him?

Shapiro slammed Trump again saying the FBI would have been remiss not to investigate.

Shapiro tweeted: Several things can be true at once:
1. There was no collusion.
2. There was willingness to collude by Papadapolous, Trump Jr., and possibly Manafort.
3. FBI would have been remiss not to investigate, even if it eventually came up empty.
4. Post-election leaks are scandalous.

Ben Shapiro is defending the FBI informant who used cash to entice Papadopoulos to London.

Ben Shapiro is defending Obama’s FBI even though they were spying on Trump before they opened the investigation.

Certainly Ben Shapiro agrees there should have been an informant embedded in Hillary’s campaign as well. Hillary’s campaign met with Ukrainians during the election to get dirt on Trump.

Hillary Clinton’s aides met with Ukrainian government officials and journalists specifically to dig up dirt on team Trump. The information gathered was then sent to the DNC and Hillary’s camp.

Ben Shapiro got slammed on Twitter.

FLASHBACK=> Barack Obama: I Guarantee There Is No Political Influence in Any Investigation by DOJ or FBI. Full Stop. Period.
Sunday, May 20, 2018 6:27 PM

This didn’t age well.

Barack Obama went on with Chris Wallace on FOX News Sunday on April 10, 2016.
During the interview the far left president told Chris Wallace there is no political influence in the Obama FBI and DOJ.

“I guarantee that there is no political influence in any investigation conducted by the Justice Department or the FBI, not just in this case but in any case. Full stop. Period.”

Obama’s claim first resurfaced in February after text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and his mistress Lisa Page revealed Obama’s possible involvement with two FBI investigations near the end of his presidency.

Since that interview the Obama FBI under the leadership of James Comey pardoned hardened criminal Hillary Clinton.
AG Loretta Lynch approved spying on the Trump campaign.
The Obama deep state infiltrated the Trump campaign with spies.
Oh… And the Obama IRS was found guilty of targeting conservative and Tea Party groups.

Once Again=> TRAITOR JEFF SESSIONS IS AWOL As Trump Goes On Offense Against Deep State Campaign Spies!
Sunday, May 20, 2018 5:56 PM

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!

President Donald Trump announced Sunday afternoon that he will make an official request to the AWOL Attorney General on Monday to investigate the Obama Deep State spies who infiltrated his 2016 presidential campaign.

“I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes – and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!”

Trump should not have had to do this.
This was the duty of his Attorney General.
But, once again, Jeff Sessions is AWOL.

For months we have argued that Jeff Sessions is dangerous. In November 2017 we called him the modern day Benedict Arnold for not investigating Obama and Clinton’s Uranium One scandal.

Saturday night Judge Jeanine stated that Sessions is the most dangerous person in the corrupt Deep State.

On her weekly show on FOX News, Judge Jeanine in her opening statement said that Attorney General Jeff Sessions is the most dangerous person in the US government (at the 1:50 mark in video below) –

But what ladies and gentlemen is unmistakable in all of this is that the single most dangerous person to the agenda of President Trump, the Republican Party and ultimately all Americans, is the Attorney General of the United States himself, Jeff Sessions.

The man has done nothing to make anyone responsible for the blatant corruption, the unmistakable perjury, the in-your-face obstruction of our laws that we’ve seen play out every day.  He has fought the release of telling documents that would put an end to this horrible period in America’s political history.  Documents that would make clear that the criminals in this attempt to overthrow an American President.  He’s even argued that he doesn’t want to release records of Hillary because she’s now a private citizen.

This man’s done nothing to create confidence that wrong doers will be accountable, answerable.  He’s done nothing to create confidence on the part of the American people in our system of justice.

In March 2018, we listed the following 12 reasons why AG Sessions should be removed from office now –

1. After accepting the AG job, the next day Sessions recused himself from everything Russia and turned over the US AG Office to the deep state. We now know that the law he quoted to recuse himself was the wrong law and was provided by Obama attorneys.

2. Corrupt and criminal Rod Rosenstein is now running the AG Office, not Sessions. Rosenstein is connected to the Uranium One scandal. When asked, Sessions stated to Congress that Asst AG Rosenstein can investigate himself in a Uranium One criminal probe.

3. It took Sessions months to fire FBI criminal Andy McCabe finally on Friday evening [March 16]. McCabe should have been fired months ago. Maybe he wasn’t fired sooner because McCabe threatened to take others down with him.

4. Corrupt and criminal Peter Strzok and Lisa Page are still employed by the FBI [as of March 18th the date of this initial post – Lisa Page has subsequently resigned from the FBI, but Strzok is still employed]. They have numerous text messages that show criminal and corrupt actions related to the Hillary email scandal, FISA abuse and the Mueller investigation. Most recently, texts were uncovered by Congress that show they had a relationship with the FISA Court judge who sentenced General Flynn and later was recused. They should not be employed, they should be in jail!

5. Robert Mueller’s criminal and corrupt witch hunt is still in place. It was created on a lie and is still in place after millions of wasted tax payer money. The Mueller investigation is criminal but Sessions won’t shut it down. Mueller is best friends with former FBI Director James Comey and he won’t recuse himself. This investigation is a farce.

6. Mueller’s entire team is made up of the likes of Strzok and Page. It’s a witch-hunt. The entire team is corrupt and criminal. They should all be in jail.

7. Hillary is still walking around – in India no less [in March 2018]. Her email fiasco was criminal. Much evidence shows that she was let go before even being interviewed. She destroyed evidence and obstructed justice but she walks free. There is no investigation from AG Sessions to date covering the criminal Clintons.

8. Uranium One and the sale of 20% of US uranium is yet to be investigated by AG Sessions. This is the real Russia collusion and Sessions won’t touch it.

9. Joe Biden and John Kerry are now embroiled in another Obama – Clinton related play for pay scheme with China. The AG is nowhere to be found.

10. James Clapper, the former disgraced NSA Director was allowed to walk this past week [in mid-March 2018] after lying under oath to Congress due to the statute of limitations. His lying was depicted in the movie “Snowden”.

11. The IRS scandal under Obama involved Mueller and yet Sessions has done nothing to address turning the other way rather than seeking justice.

12. Every day the DOJ and FBI are delaying evidence being requested by Congress or Judicial Watch. Names are redacted for no reason other than to cover up Deep State crimes. Sessions allows this and his actions arguably show he is behind it.

The country and the President deserve justice and a strong AG. Jeff Sessions is the opposite. His actions are abysmal and non-existent. America needs justice now. Jeff Sessions must go!

BREAKING: President Trump to Order DOJ Investigate Alleged Spying on His Campaign By Obama Admin
Sunday, May 20, 2018 5:44 PM

President Donald Trump tweeted Sunday afternoon he is ordering the Justice Department to investigate whether the Obama administration spied on his 2016 presidential campaign. The order comes on the heels of leaks to the New York Times and Washington Post that the Obama administration had an “informant” make several approaches to three Trump campaign officials, included one that involved an offer of cash and another an offer to “advise” the campaign.

“I hereby demand, and will do so officially tomorrow, that the Department of Justice look into whether or not the FBI/DOJ infiltrated or surveilled the Trump Campaign for Political Purposes – and if any such demands or requests were made by people within the Obama Administration!”

Screen image for posterity:

Trump’s order is the culmination of a Sunday tweet storm about alleged spying on his campaign and the failure of the Jeff Sessions-led Justice Department to drain the swamp.

Previous TGP report: TRUMP SUNDAY TWEETSTORM! — POTUS Goes After Criminal Podesta Brothers, Deep State, 13 Angry Democrats, Crooked Hillary…

CNBC’s John Harwood responded on behalf of the swamp, “Trump’s most consequential interference in our system of justice since he fired the FBI director who was investigating him”

TRUMP SUNDAY TWEETSTORM! — POTUS Goes After Criminal Podesta Brothers, Deep State, 13 Angry Democrats, Crooked Hillary…
Sunday, May 20, 2018 3:41 PM

President Donald Trump went on an epic Sunday morning tweetstorm today.

This comes after news of the Obama Deep State spying on the Trump campaign in 2016 with paid informants.

President Trump went after the Podesta brothers, Crooked Hillary and the corrupt Deep State and Mueller team.

President Donald Trump: If the FBI or DOJ was infiltrating a campaign for the benefit of another campaign, that is a really big deal. Only the release or review of documents that the House Intelligence Committee (also, Senate Judiciary) is asking for can give the conclusive answers. Drain the Swamp! Things are really getting ridiculous. The Failing and Crooked (but not as Crooked as Hillary Clinton) @nytimes has done a long & boring story indicating that the World’s most expensive Witch Hunt has found nothing on Russia & me so now they are looking at the rest of the World! At what point does this soon to be $20,000,000 Witch Hunt, composed of 13 Angry and Heavily Conflicted Democrats and two people who have worked for Obama for 8 years, STOP! They have found no Collussion with Russia, No Obstruction, but they aren’t looking at the corruption in the Hillary Clinton Campaign where she deleted 33,000 Emails, got $145,000,000 while Secretary of State, paid McCabes wife $700,000 (and got off the FBI hook along with Terry M) and so much more. Republicans and real Americans should start getting tough on this Scam. Now that the Witch Hunt has given up on Russia and is looking at the rest of the World, they should easily be able to take it into the Mid-Term Elections where they can put some hurt on the Republican Party. Don’t worry about Dems FISA Abuse, missing Emails or Fraudulent Dossier! What ever happened to the Server, at the center of so much Corruption, that the Democratic National Committee REFUSED to hand over to the hard charging (except in the case of Democrats) FBI? They broke into homes & offices early in the morning, but were afraid to take the Server? And why hasn’t the Podesta brother been charged and arrested, like others, after being forced to close down his very large and successful firm? Is it because he is a VERY well connected Democrat working in the Swamp of Washington, D.C.?

BOOM! Devin Nunes: If FBI Paid to Spy on Trump “It’s Absolute Red Line! It’s Over With!… No Honest American Will Stand for This!” (VIDEO)
Sunday, May 20, 2018 3:03 PM

Rep. Devin Nunes (D-CA) joined Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures to discuss the latest developments in the Deep State interference in the 2016 US elections.

It has been widely reported that the Obama administration had a spy working inside the Trump campaign.

As previously reported internet sleuths have determined who the FBI spy was inside the Trump campaign.

Jeff Carlson at theMarketswork on Thursday put together a piece where he places an individual by the name of Stefan Halper as a potential FBI spy into the Trump campaign. (Note that some believe that Obama may have had more than one spy on the Trump campaign).

It was a lucrative business for Stefan Halper.  Stefan Halper was paid a total of $411,575 in 2016 and 2017 for work with the US government that included his work spying on the Trump campaign.

Devin Nunes told Maria Bartiromo if this is true, “It’s over!”

Rep. Devin Nunes: If any of that is true, if they ran a spy ring or an informant ring and they were paying people within the Trump campaign, if any of that is true that is an absolute red line.  There’s not and honest person in this country who could believe that taxpayer dollars going to fund this ring and operate like this what is said in The New York Times that has quite a bit of detail on it,  if any of that is true it’s a red line in this country.  You can’t do this to political campaigns. According to them this was done in the spring before the counter-intelligence was even open.  If that’s true, we need to know about it…  If they paid someone it’s an absolute red line and this is over with!”

Records Show FBI ‘Informant’ Stefan Halper Was Paid $282,000 in 2016 For Spying on Trump — And Another $129,280 in 2017
Sunday, May 20, 2018 2:25 PM

It has been widely reported that the Obama administration had a spy working inside the Trump campaign.

As previously reported internet sleuths have determined who the FBI spy was inside the Trump campaign.

Jeff Carlson at theMarketswork on Thursday put together a piece where he places an individual by the name of Stefan Halper as a potential FBI spy into the Trump campaign. (Note that some believe that Obama may have had more than one spy on the Trump campaign).

It was a lucrative business for Stefan Halper.

Internet sleuth Jacob Wohl discovered that Stefan Halper was paid $282,295 in September 2016 for “research and development in the social sciences and humanities.”

This is important because Halper enticed young George Papadopoulos to London with the promise of thousands of dollars for his assistance.

Wohl also tweeted that Halper was the same person who invited George Papadopolous to London, where he just so happened to sit down next to that infamous Australian “Diplomat” (who also worked with the Clinton Foundation) and Halper also lured Carter Page into compromising situations involving “Russians”.

Another Twitter sleuth identified a second payment to Halper in the amount of $129,280 making the total payments to Halper more than $400,000 from President Obama’s Administration to spy on the future President of the United States.

Deplorable Lori found that the Deep State paid Stefan Halper made an additional $129,280 in 2017 for additional work.

Stefan Halper was paid a total of $411,575 in 2016 and 2017 for work with the US government that included spying on the Trump campaign.
Being a Deep State spy definitely has its perks.

SHOCK REPORT: New Evidence of Foreign Government Meddling in 2016 Election Finally Uncovered — But it was from the UK – not Russia!
Sunday, May 20, 2018 1:42 PM

Guest post by Joe Hoft

New evidence proves that a foreign government meddled in the 2016 US Election. But the government identified is the UK, not Russia!

After more than a year of the Mueller investigation, millions of dollars and the Mainstream Media’s (MSM) relentless attack on President Trump, what do we have? Nothing really.

President Trump tweeting in February that if the goal of Russia was to create discord in the US then they have succeeded. “They are laughing their asses off in Moscow. Get smart America!”

Since this tweet, the Russia fairy tale has fallen apart!  Corrupt Mueller and his team of conflicted, biased and corrupt investigators and attorneys have found nothing related to their target, President Trump, and now their indictments are unraveling.

Far left VOX provided a list of those indicted by Mueller in February –

1) George Papadopoulos, former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser, pleaded guilty in October to making false statements to the FBI.

2) Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser, pleaded guilty in December to making false statements to the FBI.

3) Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chair, was indicted in October in Washington, DC on charges of conspiracy, money laundering, false statements, and failure to disclose foreign assets — all related to his work for Ukrainian politicians before he joined the Trump campaign. He’s pleaded not guilty on all counts. Then, in February, Mueller filed a new case against him in Virginia, with tax, financial, and bank fraud charges.

4) Rick Gates, a former Trump campaign aide and Manafort’s longtime junior business partner, was indicted on similar charges to Manafort. But he has now agreed to a plea deal with Mueller’s team, pleading guilty to just one false statements charge and one conspiracy charge.

5-20) 13 Russian nationals and three Russian companies were indicted on conspiracy charges, with some also being accused of identity theft. The charges related to a Russian propaganda effort designed to interfere with the 2016 campaign. The companies involved are the Internet Research Agency, often described as a “Russian troll farm,” and two other companies that helped finance it. The Russian nationals indicted include 12 of the agency’s employees and its alleged financier, Yevgeny Prigozhin.

21) Richard Pinedo: This California man pleaded guilty to an identity theft charge in connection with the Russian indictments, and has agreed to cooperate with Mueller.

22) Alex van der Zwaan: This London lawyer pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI about his contacts with Rick Gates and another unnamed person based in Ukraine.

The Russians

The largest group in the above list, the 13 Russians and 3 Russian Company’s, indicted by Mueller were expected to be no-shows as their court cases arrived.  Some people believe that the 13 Russians listed in the indictment are not even real people.  They’re certainly nowhere to be found and no doubt never will come forward, even if they were real.

In this past week’s case involving one of the company’s listed by Mueller, Concord Management, Mueller’s attorney Jeannie Rhee (who previously represented the Clinton Foundation and Hillary Clinton) suggested that the Russians indicted by the Mueller team worked for Concord Management.  But the attorneys for Concord management stated that they never have worked for their client.

Mueller’s corrupt and conflicted attorney Rhee also was put on the spot when Concord Management’s attorneys noted that the second company indicted by the Mueller team, Concord Catering, was not in existence at the time Mueller’s team alleged they committed crimes (others suggest their crime may really be too much Russian Dressing on a tossed salad).

Concord Management’s attorneys noted that the Facebook posts identified by Mueller’s team were all in Russian and Rhee and her team admitted having not translated them to English (so who knows what they said or how they somehow helped President Trump win the election?).  Overall it is becoming clear that Mueller’s indictments of the Russia individuals and entities supposedly impacting the election are a farce and therefore these cases may likely be tossed just like the salad mentioned above.

General Flynn

General Flynn’s case is also falling apart.  The original judge overseeing the Flynn case, Judge Rudolph Contreras, was recused and we still do not know why or by whom?  Contreras is also a FISA Court Judge and he may have signed off on the FISA warrant to spy on the General in the first place.  He also is a friend of former Mueller team members, the corrupt Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.  In their text messages, they text about meeting with the judge for dinner.

The new judge overseeing the case has asked Mueller’s team to provide all information to the General that he apparently was not provided when he plead guilty to lying to the Mueller team.  The FBI agents who interviewed General Flynn stated that they did not believe he lied!  It’s looking more and more like the General was set up and his case will be tossed as well.

Paul Manafort

Manafort was indicted for two cases.  The first case is being prosecuted in Washington DC.  Manafort is being charged with not filling out some forms in prior years starting in 2005.  Clearly these indictments have nothing to do with Russian collusion in the 2016 election.

Manafort challenged the case by challenging the legality of Mueller’s investigation.  He claimed that his case should be tossed because the investigation is not constitutional.  When Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein set up the investigation he did not have a crime and he set the scope of Mueller’s work way too big, basically claiming that Mueller could look into anything he wanted.  Both of these claims were valid.

However, the judge overseeing Manafort’s first case is Judge Amy Berman Jackson, an Obama appointee.  Judge Jackson has a horrible record and has seen her verdicts overturned by the Supreme Court.  She tossed Manafort’s plea.

Judge Jackson should be impeached and there may be support for this as the Judge of Manafort’s second case challenged the Mueller team on exactly the above two points.  Also, the Chairman of the US Senate’s Judiciary Committee, Chuck Grassley,  late last week sent a set of questions on this very point to Rosenstein to answer.

Manafort’s second case is another fruadulent case.  Manafort obtained loans to pay his attorney fees by using some of his properties as collateral.  Mueller’s team charged that the amounts on the fair value of the properties were not accurate and therefore charged him with bank fraud.  This case was moved to Virginia per Manafort’s option and a good thing.  The DC courts are filled with Obama crooks (i.e. Contreras, Jackson, etc.).

Judge T. S. Ellis III oversees Manafort’s case in Virginia.  According to FOX News in early May –

A federal judge on Friday harshly rebuked Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team during a hearing for ex-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort – suggesting they lied about the scope of the investigation, are seeking “unfettered power” and are more interested in bringing down the president.

Judge Ellis has also requested an un-redacted scope document from Mueller’s team and he received it on Friday.  Based on recent events this case may be tossed.  Of the other individuals indicted by Mueller, they all appear to have been coerced into pleas in a manner similar to the way they worked over General Flynn.

As the Russia meddling into the 2016 US election unwinds, the meddling by the UK, is becoming surprisingly more apparent.

Christopher Steel

We’ve known for over a year that the Clinton campaign and the FBI worked with former UK MI6 spy Christopher Steele, who authored a dossier of salacious statements about President Trump.  Steele was reportedly paid by Fusion GPS for the document.

Steele was paid $168,000 by Glenn Simpson’s company Fusion GPS for the series of memos containing information that was selectively briefed to journalists approved by Simpson and used by the FBI.

The Steele dossier was never verified and is suspected of being a total fiction.  This act alone by a spy from the UK is troubling enough, but that is not it.

Joseph Mifsud

George Papadopoulos, the lower level campaign worker for the Trump campaign, appears to have been targeted by three individuals with ties to British and/or U.S. Intelligence: Joseph Mifsud, Alexander Downer and Stefan Halper.

Mifsud and Papadopoulos obtained positions at an organization named the Centre for International Energy and Natural Resources Law & Security. Papadopoulos was a ‘nobody’ and the Centre sketchy at best. Mifsud vanished in early November 2017, shortly after Papadopoulos was in the news and indicted. His whereabouts are still unknown.

Although the common story is that Mifsud is a Russian Agent, many ties seem to lead [him] back to UK Intelligence. Julian Assange put out a Twitter Thread noting the connection between Mifsud and UK Intelligence.

Alexander Downer

Although, not a Brit, Alexander Downer is the Australian individual who apparently overheard Papadopoulos talk about Trump and Russia in a bar which alerted the FBI to the story and their eventual spy program on Trump. This story has been refuted for months.

The Papadopoulos/Downer meeting has been portrayed as a chance encounter in a bar. That does not appear to be the case….Downer has direct ties to UK Intelligence firm Hakluyt where he served on the Advisory Board from 2008-2014.

Shortly after the Papadopoulos and Downer chance encounter, Peter Strzok was in London per texts released by the FBI. “Strzok texts suggest he was in London on August 3, 2016.” The corrupt FBI’s investigation into Trump officially started a few days earlier.

Stefan Halper

One individual all over the Internet and social media by the name of Stefan Halper has been identified as a potential FBI spy into the Trump campaign. (Note that some believe that Obama may have had more than one spy on the Trump campaign).  The most intriguing individual related to Papadopoulos is Halper.

According to Jeff Carlson at theMarketswork

My guess is Papadopoulos never knew what hit him. A young man, suddenly thrust into a position beyond his experience, Papadopoulos made for an easy intelligence target.

Carter Page almost certainly discussed the just completed Moscow trip with his host, Stefan Halper, during the London symposium.

It’s now being reported that Devin Nunes has learned the identity of a “top secret intelligence source” that was part of the FBI’s Counterintelligence Investigation.

I think there’s a decent chance that source is Stefan Halper.

Halper had contact with both Papadopulos and Carter Page. Halper has connections to UK Intelligence and US Intelligence. Halper met with Carter Page just days after Page’s Moscow trip.

Other Internet sleuths tied Halper to the Obama team of crooks. Halper was paid more than $400,000 in 2016 for his efforts to set Papadopulos up and get him to sing to the Australia diplomat about Hillary’s emails being held by Russia.  Halper and others planted this information on Papadopulos before he shared this with the Aussie in a drunken London pub discussion.

Additional research shows that Halper was a classmate of impeached President Bill Clinton.  Halper apparently knew Bill Clinton well in their days at Oxford.  He later worked as an Advisor to the Clinton Administration.

Robert Hannigan

Hannigan had been Head of the GCHQ and he suddenly resigned in January of this year –

Hannigan only took over at the UK’s surveillance agency in November 2014 to oversee a more open approach after revelations by the National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden put GCHQ on the defensive in 2013.

His sudden resignation – he informed staff just hours before making this decision public – prompted speculation that it might be related to British concerns over shared intelligence with the US in the wake of Donald Trump becoming president.

But the GCHQ press release stressed his decision was exclusively for family reasons. As well as his ill wife, Hannigan has two elderly parents to look after. He will remain in post until a successor is appointed.

It’s still not known, what, if any connection to the Trump – Russia collusion fantasy, Hannigan may have had.

In Summary

Based on information to date, the UK had more to do with interfering with the US 2016 Presidential election than Russia.  The Obama team and the Clinton campaign spied on the Trump Administration and used the entire government apparatus, including the CIA, FBI, the DOJ and others, to do so.  It appears, they also had help from the UK. 

These crooks were willing to risk World War III with Russia rather than face a Trump Presidency.  This all leads to the question – What is so damn damning that these many individuals would go to such brazen lengths to remove President Trump from office?

This is clearly 100 times worse than Watergate!

VIDEO: Pro-Palestinian Thugs Shut Down UCLA Speech on Armenian Genocide, Screaming “Mother-F**King Armenian Flag”
Sunday, May 20, 2018 1:22 PM

On Thursday night during an event highlighting the stories, history, and experiences of three different Middle Eastern indigenous communities — Armenian, Jewish, and Kurdish — at UCLA, students were harassed, attacked, and shouted down by Students for Justice in Palestine during their event.

The Palestinian protesters brought in blow-horns to shut down the speakers.

One Palestinian ripped down the Armenian and Israeli flags screaming, “Mother f-king’ Armenian flag!”

The protesters shut down the event for over 15 minutes until the campus police arrived.

The Washington Free Beacon reported:

Pro-Palestinian students at UCLA attacked a Lebanese Christian sharing the story of his grandparent’s survival of the Armenian genocide for “white supremacy.”

Police had to be called to a student event celebrating indigenous peoples Thursday evening, where members of Students for Justice in Palestine stormed the room and ripped down Armenian and Jewish flags.

Students Supporting Israel at UCLA hosted an event, “Indigenous Peoples Unite,” bringing together three speakers from the Armenian, Jewish, and Kurdish communities to talk about “these peoples’ efforts in battling controversy, oppression, and revisionism.”

One of the panelists, Dario Ouliguian, a second-year UCLA linguistics major who is vice president of the Lebanese club, shared his perspective about being a descendent of a survivor of the Armenian genocide. Ouliguian also heads the Alan D. Leve Center for Jewish Studies Student Advisory Board.

Activists from the anti-Israel group Students for Justice in Palestine interrupted Ouliguian’s story, with one student walking up to Ouliguian, ripping down the “mother f—king” Armenian flag, and throwing Ouliguian’s notes away.

Other anti-Israel activists then surrounded the room, armed with blow horns and whistles, yelling, “Palestine will be free!” When a female student tried to diffuse the situation, the group only got louder.

“Israel is a terrorist state!” they yelled, and then took down the flag of Israel.

When Ouliguian tried to return to the microphone to talk about Armenia, the group started screaming, “F—k white supremacy!”

Campus police were called to remove the protesters, who shut down the event and occupied the room for roughly 15 minutes.

When police began escorting them out, a white student yelled in front of several African-American police officers, “UCLA is on the side of racism! And the terrorist state of Israel!”

Students for Justice in Palestine organizers said they protested because the “event is false” because it did not feature a Palestinian speaker.

Video of Pro-JIHAD Genocide of the Armenians “Palestinian” Supporting Student THUGS For “Justice” in Palestine in Their Thuggish “Glory” was posted on Facebook:

So Much Winning! Earth Has Cooled Half a Degree Since Trump Election (VIDEO)
Sunday, May 20, 2018 6:17 AM

All of this winning is so exhausting.

Sky News Australia this week announced that Mother Earth has cooled by half a degree since Donald Trump was elected President of the United States.

Maybe it’s all the clean coal?

Rowan Deantold his audience on Saturday the Earth has cooled 0.454 degrees Celsius since Donald Trump got elected.

It’s true.Watts Up With That reported:  From February 2016 to February 2018, “global average temperatures dropped by 0.56 degrees Celsius.” That, he notes, is the biggest two-year drop in the past century.

Thank you President Trump!

PREACH IT!… Judge Jeanine: JEFF SESSIONS is the Most Dangerous Person in the US Government Today! (VIDEO)
Sunday, May 20, 2018 3:23 AM

Guest post by Joe Hoft

For months we have argued that Jeff Sessions is dangerous. In November 2017 we called him the modern day Benedict Arnold for not investigating Obama and Clinton’s Uranium One scandal.

Tonight Judge Jeanine stated that Sessions is the most dangerous person in the corrupt Deep State.

On her weekly show on FOX News, Judge Jeanine in her opening statement said that Attorney General Jeff Sessions is the most dangerous person in the US government (at the 1:50 mark in video below) –

But what ladies and gentlemen is unmistakable in all of this is that the single most dangerous person to the agenda of President Trump, the Republican Party and ultimately all Americans, is the Attorney General of the United States himself, Jeff Sessions.

The man has done nothing to make anyone responsible for the blatant corruption, the unmistakable perjury, the in-your-face obstruction of our laws that we’ve seen play out every day.  He has fought the release of telling documents that would put an end to this horrible period in America’s political history.  Documents that would make clear that the criminals in this attempt to overthrow an American President.  He’s even argued that he doesn’t want to release records of Hillary because she’s now a private citizen.

This man’s done nothing to create confidence that wrong doers will be accountable, answerable.  He’s done nothing to create confidence on the part of the American people in our system of justice.

In March 2018, we listed the following 12 reasons why AG Sessions should be removed from office now –

1. After accepting the AG job, the next day Sessions recused himself from everything Russia and turned over the US AG Office to the deep state. We now know that the law he quoted to recuse himself was the wrong law and was provided by Obama attorneys.

2. Corrupt and criminal Rod Rosenstein is now running the AG Office, not Sessions. Rosenstein is connected to the Uranium One scandal. When asked, Sessions stated to Congress that Asst AG Rosenstein can investigate himself in a Uranium One criminal probe.

3. It took Sessions months to fire FBI criminal Andy McCabe finally on Friday evening [March 16]. McCabe should have been fired months ago. Maybe he wasn’t fired sooner because McCabe threatened to take others down with him.

4. Corrupt and criminal Peter Strzok and Lisa Page are still employed by the FBI [as of March 18th the date of this initial post – Lisa Page has subsequently resigned from the FBI, but Strzok is still employed]. They have numerous text messages that show criminal and corrupt actions related to the Hillary email scandal, FISA abuse and the Mueller investigation. Most recently, texts were uncovered by Congress that show they had a relationship with the FISA Court judge who sentenced General Flynn and later was recused. They should not be employed, they should be in jail!

5. Robert Mueller’s criminal and corrupt witch hunt is still in place. It was created on a lie and is still in place after millions of wasted tax payer money. The Mueller investigation is criminal but Sessions won’t shut it down. Mueller is best friends with former FBI Director James Comey and he won’t recuse himself. This investigation is a farce.

6. Mueller’s entire team is made up of the likes of Strzok and Page. It’s a witch-hunt. The entire team is corrupt and criminal. They should all be in jail.

7. Hillary is still walking around – in India no less [in March 2018]. Her email fiasco was criminal. Much evidence shows that she was let go before even being interviewed. She destroyed evidence and obstructed justice but she walks free. There is no investigation from AG Sessions to date covering the criminal Clintons.

8. Uranium One and the sale of 20% of US uranium is yet to be investigated by AG Sessions. This is the real Russia collusion and Sessions won’t touch it.

9. Joe Biden and John Kerry are now embroiled in another Obama – Clinton related play for pay scheme with China. The AG is nowhere to be found.

10. James Clapper, the former disgraced NSA Director was allowed to walk this past week [in mid-March 2018] after lying under oath to Congress due to the statute of limitations. His lying was depicted in the movie “Snowden”.

11. The IRS scandal under Obama involved Mueller and yet Sessions has done nothing to address turning the other way rather than seeking justice.

12. Every day the DOJ and FBI are delaying evidence being requested by Congress or Judicial Watch. Names are redacted for no reason other than to cover up Deep State crimes. Sessions allows this and his actions arguably show he is behind it.

The country and the President deserve justice and a strong AG. Jeff Sessions is the opposite. His actions are abysmal and non-existent. America needs justice now. Jeff Sessions must go!
