Both the former director and assistant director of the FBI...

have been referred to the D.O.J. for possible criminal prosecution

But according to liberals any problems with the credibility of the FBI is all Trump's fault.

When all else fails?

The Democratic National Committee sued the Trump campaign, the Russian government, Wikileaks on Friday, accusing them of conspiring to disrupt the 2016 presidential election.
The Democratic Party on Friday sued President Donald Trump's presidential campaign, the Russian government and the Wikileaks group, claiming a broad conspiracy to help Trump win the 2016 election.
The multi-million-dollar lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court says that "In the Trump campaign, Russia found a willing and active partner in this effort" to mount "a brazen attack on American Democracy."
The suit says that "preexisting relationships with Russia and Russian oligarchs" with Trump and Trump associates "provided fertile ground for [the] Russia-Trump conspiracy."

You just can't make this shit up, folks?  

Is it becoming as obvious to the Democrats as it is becoming to most everyone else that the Mueller probe is not going to help their "conspiracy" cause here. Because certainly if they were expecting a scathing report lined with absolute proof of Russian Trump conspiracy, they wouldn't be bothering with a lawsuit.

Perhaps they want to get this whole lawsuit going quickly, before Mueller and his probe has a chance to actually provide their report (which isn't likely going to bolster their lawsuit). Otherwise, what would be the point of civil action "while" the so called counter-intelligence criminal probe is going on?

But the real truth here is that the DNC is desperately hoping to keep this entire fantasy alive and in the news. While I am certain that the dumbest of the dumbest will fall for it, most reasonable Americans will see it for what it is. A bad publicity stunt.

Rosenstein tells Trump he is not target in either Russian or Cohen probes...

Liberals claim Rosenstein either:
  • Doesn't know the truth
  • Lied about the truth
  • Misstated the truth
  • Doesn't understand the truth

Comey Memos

From what I have read, the President never asked Comey to lay off the Russian investigation. What the President wanted, was someone (either the FBI or the DOJ) to let the public know that he was not personally a target in this investigation.

I am not sure this is was an unreasonable request. The media was speculating or even reporting that the President was in fact a target. There was supposedly leaks at the time, making such suggestions. To have some sort of formal push back regarding this, seems to be an appropriate response (especially considering there was bad information being leaked). No President should have to put up with being accused in the media of being a target of an investigation, if the FBI or DOJ could set the record straight. It's not obstruction to ask the FBI or the DOJ to state a fact.

These memos do more to crush the idea that Trump obstructed Justice than actually suggest he obstructed Justice. In fact, Trump did more to foster the idea that he wanted the dossier investigated (in order to clear his name) than to have Comey end the investigation.

Inspector General "did" refer McCabe to Federal prosecutors for criminal charges

The Justice Department’s inspector general has referred to federal prosecutors his findings that Andrew G. McCabe, the former F.B.I. deputy director, had repeatedly misled investigators, a person familiar with the matter said on Thursday. 
As I explained to people (some of whom disagreed with me) the Inspector General did not have authority to bring charges against former FBI second in charge Andrew McCabe. What an I.G. can do (and what Horowitz did do) is refer the case to prosecutors to decide whether or not to bring charges.

So the fact that Horowitz only referenced FBI violations in the report, did not mean that he did believed that McCabe should not be charged with a federal crime.  By all accounts, the Horowitz referral is proof that the I.G. did believe that McCabe possibly broke the law.

This would also explain why McCabe has been busy raising money (half million as of now) for his criminal defense. 

We still do not know if the Justice Department will bring charges. Obviously there is always the claim that McCabe (being fired days before his pension kicked in) has been punished enough, and therefor criminal charges would be piling on. There is also the belief that the DOJ would not want to bring down charges on "one of their own". 

But with the atmosphere as it is, and with former FBI director Mueller writing out false statement indictments like hall passes, the political optics could be brutal if McCabe is let off the hook. 

New Liberal Hero!!!

Comey Book Tour

Rumor has it that only one person came and bought at book at this particular event. The store is now left with 599 out of the 600 copies that they had ordered. But there were plenty of microphones, video recorders, and cameras on hand!

All Press, no customers...

Senate bill protecting Mueller?

Does anyone actually believe that the President would sign a bill that took away the executive branch's power to put an end to the same special counsel that the executive branch created?

So the authors of this bill would effectively require almost a hundred Republicans in the House and eighteen Republicans in the Senate to come up with the two thirds majority it would take to override a Presidential veto.

Seriously, does anyone really think these things through?
