  1. Looks like Barr shares the suspicion of a whitewash by the IG with many of us.

    “AG Barr Disagrees With Key Finding In Watchdog’s Trump-Russia Report”

    “Attorney General William Barr disagrees with a key conclusion from the Justice Department inspector general’s investigation regarding the origins of the Trump-Russia probe, according to a new report.

    The Washington Post, citing anonymous sources familiar with the matter, reports that Barr has told associates that he does not believe that the FBI had enough information to justify opening a counterintelligence investigation into Trump campaign associates in July 2016.”

    “Any disagreement regarding Horowitz’s conclusions is sure to renew allegations that Barr is acting in a partisan manner to support President Donald Trump. Democrats and liberal media pundits criticized Barr’s handling of the release of the special counsel’s report. Barr has also faced criticism for tapping U.S. attorney John Durham to lead an investigation of his own into the origins of the Russia investigation. Barr told lawmakers on April 10 that he believed that “spying” occurred against the Trump campaign.

    Horowitz is expected to release his report next Monday. He will testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee two days later.

    According to reports last week, Horowitz will fault FBI officials’ sloppiness in their handling of applications for Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants against Carter Page. The bureau relied on the infamous and unverified Steele dossier in applications for the warrants.

    Horowitz also reportedly found that an FBI attorney who worked on the Trump-Russia investigation altered documents that were used in the FISA applications. “

  2. All the evidence Dems have left out, because it proves the president’s case.

    “GOP Impeachment Report: Here’s All The Evidence Democrats Are Ignoring”

    “On Monday, House Republicans released a 123-page report walking through all the key evidence presented after several weeks of closed-door interviews and public testimonies of witnesses. The Democrats, the Republicans maintain, not only failed to make their case that President Trump committed an impeachable offense, they abused their power in the process.

    “The Democrats’ impeachment inquiry is not the organic outgrowth of serious misconduct; it is an orchestrated campaign to upend our political system,” the Republican report reads. It states:

    The Democrats are trying to impeach a duly elected President based on the accusations and assumptions of unelected bureaucrats who disagreed with President Trump’s policy initiatives and processes. They are trying to impeach President Trump because some unelected bureaucrats were discomforted by an elected President’s telephone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. They are trying to impeach President Trump because some unelected bureaucrats chafed at an elected President’s ‘outside the beltway’ approach to diplomacy.

    “The Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, led by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, is merely the outgrowth of their obsession with re-litigating the results of the 2016 presidential election,” Republicans maintain. “Despite their best efforts, the evidence gathered during the Democrats’ partisan and one-sided impeachment inquiry does not support that President Trump pressured Ukraine to investigate his political rival to benefit the President in the 2020 presidential election. The evidence does not establish any impeachable offense.”

    In the Findings section of the report, the Republicans detail the key evidence and context they say the Democrats are attempting to downplay or outright ignore to make their ultimately “failed” case for impeachment:”

    Democrats allege that President Trump pressured Ukraine to initiate investigations into his political rival, former Vice President Biden, for the purpose of benefiting the President in the 2020 U.S. presidential election. The evidence does not support the Democrats’ allegations. Instead, the findings outlined below are based on the evidence presented and information available in the public realm.”

  3. And oh look….

    The pedophile Mueller used in his “investigation” has been indicted for funneling millions illegally to Hillary’s campaign.

    “BREAKING: Convicted Pedophile Used In Mueller Investigation Indicted For Funneling Millions In Illegal Contributions to Hillary, DOJ Says”

    “George Nader, a convicted pedophile that special counsel Robert Mueller used in his Russia investigation, was indicted on Tuesday for allegedly concealing millions of dollars in illegal campaign contributions to then-Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

    “The Justice Department refers only to an unidentified 2016 presidential candidate, but campaign finance records make clear that the candidate was Clinton,” Politico reported.

    In a statement, the U.S. Department of Justice wrote:

    According to the indictment, from March 2016 through January 2017, Khawaja conspired with Nader to conceal the source of more than $3.5 million in campaign contributions, directed to political committees associated with a candidate for President of the United States in the 2016 election. By design, these contributions appeared to be in the names of Khawaja, his wife, and his company. In reality, they allegedly were funded by Nader. Khawaja and Nader allegedly made these contributions in an effort to gain influence with high-level political figures, including the candidate. As Khawaja and Nader arranged these payments, Nader allegedly reported to an official from a foreign government about his efforts to gain influence.

    “The indictment noted that political committees that received funding unwittingly submitted false disclosure reports and were presumably victims of the plot,” The Washington Post reported. “Still, Clinton apparently attended numerous events, including small gatherings, with Nader, who on July 19, 2016, messaged the foreign official a photograph of him with Candidate 1’s spouse — an apparent reference to Bill Clinton — at Khawaja’s home.”

    The Associated Press highlighted Nader’s alleged criminal history in March 15 report:

    Nader was convicted by Prague’s Municipal Court of 10 cases of sexually abusing minors and sentenced to a one-year prison term in May 2003, said Marketa Puci, the court spokeswoman. She said the crimes occurred between 1999 and 2002. …

    In one case, Nader requested oral sex from a 14-year-old in a room at the Hilton Hotel in Prague, Puci said. After the boy refused, Nader masturbated in front of the boy and paid him 2,000 koruna — worth about $100 today, she said.

    Federalist co-founder Sean Davis noted in a tweet that Nader was “a top Mueller source during the anti-Trump Russia probe — a pedophile and child porn trafficker whom Mueller refused to arrest.””

    “Trump hits Macron for ‘non-answer’ on ISIS fighters, in tense meeting overseas”

    “President Trump on Tuesday tangled with French President Emmanuel Macron in a tense exchange in front of reporters in London, where Trump asked Macron if he’d like to take back “some nice ISIS fighters” and then dinged him for his “non-answer” — just hours after he challenged the French president’s rebuke of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

    “I have not spoken to the president about that — would you like some nice ISIS fighters?” he asked Macron, when asked about ISIS fighters from Europe captured in Syria. “I can give them to you, you can take every one you want.”

    After Macron’s answer, in which he urged Trump to “be serious” and called for a broader push against ISIS overall, Trump took another swipe.

    “This is why he’s a great politician, because that’s one of the greatest non-answers I’ve ever heard,” Trump joked.

    That exchange came hours after Trump criticized a “very, very nasty statement” about the NATO alliance — referring to comments Macron made that recent U.S. troop actions in Syria contributed to the “brain death” of the military alliance.

    “Nobody needs NATO more than France,” Trump said, alluding to France being invaded twice during both World Wars. “It’s a very dangerous statement for them to make,” Trump said. “Frankly, the one that benefits the least is the United States. We are helping Europe unite and go against a common foe – may not be a foe – I can’t tell you.”

    “It is a very tough statement to make when you have such difficulty in France when you look at what is going on,” Trump continued. “They have had a very rough year. You just can’t go around making statements like that about NATO. It is very disrespectful.””
