It’s Official! The Next Domino in the Trump/Russia Dossier is Set to FALL

The beautiful wife of former DOJ top guy Bruce Ohr is set to testify before Congress.

Nellie Ohr, who worked for Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm that investigated Trump on behalf of the Clinton campaign, will be testifying before Congress next week.

Daily Caller

Congress will interview Nellie Ohr, the wife of Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr, later this week, Texas Rep. John Ratcliffe said on Sunday.

Ratcliffe said Sunday that Ohr is expected to appear for a closed-door interview with the House Judiciary and House Oversight & Government Reform Committees, in an interview on Fox News.

Ohr worked during the 2016 election cycle for Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm that investigated Donald Trump on behalf of the Clinton campaign and DNC. Fusion hired former British spy Christopher Steele, the author of the infamous anti-Trump dossier that was used to obtain spy warrants against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.

While she worked for Fusion, Ohr’s husband, Bruce Ohr, was in contact with both Steele and Glenn Simpson, the founder of Fusion GPS.

A former assistant deputy attorney general at the Justice Department, Bruce Ohr was interviewed by the congressional committees on Aug. 28.

Republican lawmakers have questioned the Ohrs’ relationship to Fusion GPS and Steele. The husband-and-wife duo met with Steele on July 30, 2016, a day before the FBI opened its counterintelligence investigation into the Trump campaign’s possible ties to Russia. Nellie Ohr began working for Fusion GPS in December 2015. Congressional sources have told The Daily Caller News Foundation that Fusion approached Ohr for the job.

Bruce Ohr testified in August that just after the meeting with Steele, he contacted then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. Ohr remained in contact with Steele even after the FBI cut ties with the former spy because of his unauthorized contacts with the media. Ohr provided at least a dozen briefings to the FBI about his conversations and meetings with Steele from November 2016 and May 2017.

Republicans want to know why Fusion GPS hired Nellie Ohr as well as why Bruce Ohr was used to pass information to the FBI. Steele, a former MI6 officer, shared information from his investigation with the FBI in early July 2016.

HAPPENING NOW: Nunes Drops an Atom Bomb on Russia Investigation – They’re Releasing EVERYTHING

Rep. Devin Nunes has been a patriot and a champion of truth through this entire Russia witch-hunt debacle and #SpyGate.

Now, in the spirit of complete transparency, Nunes is announcing that his panel will move forward and make all of the House “Russia probe” documents available, for everyone to read.

Washington Examiner

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., said Sunday his panel will move to have all of the documents related to witness interviews conducted as part of its Russia investigation released to the public before the 2018 midterm elections.

During an interview on Fox News, Nunes said “full transparency is in order.”

“If you look at a lot of the facts that are now out it’s the facts that are now out, it’s what we found on the House Intelligence Committee,” Nunes said on “Sunday Morning Futures.” “So we believe that the depositions that we took I think for nearly about 70 people, those need to be published and they need to be published, I think before the election … put out for the American people to review, so that they can see the work that we did and they can see all of the people that were interviewed by us and their answers to those questions.”

He added that the American public can expect to see what witnesses testified in “the next few weeks.”

Nunes did concede, however, that approximately a quarter of the interviews might be classified and would need to be approved for release by the director of national intelligence to declassify them. He expressed hope that this process would only take “a matter of days and they don’t do their normal foot dragging where they slow roll and we don’t get these before the election.”

U.S. Coast Guard Commander HITS BACK at San Juan Major, Demolishes Her Claims Against Trump

The “Nasty” mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico is as progressive and anti-Trump as you can get.

She’s still working overtime to try and smear President Trump in regards to his stellar response to hurricane Maria.

While she allowed donations, like hundreds of thousands of bottles of water to sit, forgotten at the airport, President Trump unleashed the power of the U.S. government to help the people of Puerto Rico, and a commander of the Coast Guard is making sure everyone knows it.

The Hill

Admiral Karl Schultz, the commandant of the U.S. Coast Guard, said Sunday that the Trump administration brought the full force of government resources to bear in its response to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.

“I know that the [federal] efforts that I saw were very much committed to the citizens of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico,” Schultz told ABC’s “This Week” when asked if he agreed with President Trump that the federal efforts in Puerto Rico were a success.

He also pointed to the logistical challenge posed by the effort.

“The response in Maria was massive,” he explained. “It’s an island, which makes things challenging. The supplies that were lifted in by sea and air.”

“It’s a challenging area,” he added.

Schultz did not comment on the accuracy of a George Washington University study that estimated almost 3,000 people died as a result of the storm.

“I’m not calling any numbers into doubt, what I’m saying is that, as our team was part of it we were very much supported and empowered to get down there and try to be helpful,” Schultz said.

Trump sparked controversy when he called the death count into question last week.

Lisa Page Just TORPEDOED Mueller’s Entire Investigation With One Bombshell Statement

The congressional testimony from former FBI lawyer, and Peter Strzok’s mistress has shed a lot of light on the Russia probe, led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

We now know that after nearly a year of investigating, the FBI had nothing “Russia collusion” wise on Trump & instead of closing the case, they doubled-down & introduced a special counsel to dig up whatever they could to smear/snare Trump.

The Hill

To date, Lisa Page’s infamy has been driven mostly by the anti-Donald Trump text messages she exchanged with fellow FBI agent Peter Strzok as the two engaged in an affair while investigating the president for alleged election collusion with Russia.

Yet, when history judges the former FBI lawyer years from now, her most consequential pronouncement may not have been typed on her bureau-issued Samsung smartphone to her colleague and lover.

Rather, it might be eight simple words she uttered behind closed doors during a congressional interview a few weeks ago.

“It’s a reflection of us still not knowing,” Page told Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) when questioned about texts she and Strzok exchanged in May 2017 as Robert Mueller was being named a special prosecutor to take over the Russia investigation.

With that statement, Page acknowledged a momentous fact: After nine months of using some of the most awesome surveillance powers afforded to U.S. intelligence, the FBI still had not made a case connecting Trump or his campaign to Russia’s election meddling.

Page opined further, acknowledging “it still existed in the scope of possibility that there would be literally nothing” to connect Trump and Russia, no matter what Mueller or the FBI did.

“As far as May of 2017, we still couldn’t answer the question,” she said at another point.

I reached out to Page’s lawyer, Amy Jeffress, on Friday. She declined to answer questions about her client’s cooperation with Congress.

It might take a few seconds for the enormity of Page’s statements to sink in. After all, she isn’t just any FBI lawyer. She was a lead on the Russia case when it started in summer 2016, and she helped it transition to Mueller through summer 2017.

For those who might cast doubt on the word of a single FBI lawyer, there’s more.

Shortly after he was fired, ex-FBI Director James Comey told the Senate there was not yet evidence to justify investigating Trump for colluding with Russia. “When I left, we did not have an investigation focused on President Trump,” Comey testified.

And Strzok, the counterintelligence boss and leader of the Russia probe, texted Page in May 2017 that he was reluctant to join Mueller’s probe and leave his senior FBI post because he feared “there’s no big there, there.”

The Department of Justice (DOJ) inspector general asked Strzok shortly before he was fired from the FBI what he meant by that text, and he offered a most insightful answer.

Strzok said he wasn’t certain there was a “broad, coordinated effort” to hijack the election and that the evidence of Trump campaign aides talking about getting Hillary Clinton dirt from Russians might have been just a “bunch of opportunists” talking to heighten their importance.

Strzok added that, while he raised the idea of impeachment in some of his texts to Page, “I am, again, was not, am not convinced or certain that it will,” he told the IG.

So, by the words of Comey, Strzok and Page, we now know that the Trump Justice Department — through Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein — unleashed the Mueller special prosecutor probe before the FBI could validate a connection between Trump and Russia.

Which raises the question: If there was no concrete evidence of collusion, why did we need a special prosecutor?

Page’s comments also mean FBI and Justice officials likely leaked a barrage of media stories just before and after Mueller’s appointment that made the evidence of collusion look far stronger than the frontline investigators knew it to be. Text messages show contacts between key FBI and DOJ players and the Washington Post, the Associated Press and the New York Times during the ramp-up to Mueller’s probe.

And that means the news media — perhaps longing to find a new Watergate, to revive sagging fortunes — were far too willing to be manipulated by players in a case that began as a political opposition research project funded by Trump’s Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, and led by a former British intelligence agent, Christopher Steele, who despised Trump.

Finally, Page’s statement signals that the nation’s premier intelligence court may not have been given a complete picture of the evidence — or lack thereof — as it approved an extraordinary surveillance intrusion into an American presidential nominee’s campaign just weeks before Election Day.

There was no fault to the FBI checking whether Trump was compromised by Russia; that is a classic counterintelligence responsibility.

The real fault lies in those leaders who allowed a secret investigation to mushroom into a media maelstrom driven by official leaks that created a story that far exceeded the evidence, and then used that false narrative to set a special prosecutor flying downhill ahead of his skis.

No matter where Mueller ends his probe, it is now clear the actions that preceded his appointment turned justice on its head, imposing the presumption of guilt upon a probe whose own originators had reason to doubt the strength of their evidence.

BOMBSHELL REPORT: Former Obama Officials Are Doing the UNTHINKABLE to Help Iran and Hurt America

In what can only be called TREASON, Obama alum are joining John Kerry’s “silent coup,” and are advising Europe on ways in which to evade U.S. sanctions against Iran.

We need our attorney general to step up and #DoSomething.  It’s been nearly 2 years now, and “secret plans” aside, far too many bad actors are brazenly getting away with political murder.

Breitbart

Richard Goldberg, the Republican political operative who helped coordinate opposition to the Iran deal on Capitol Hill, claimed Saturday evening that former Obama administration officials were trying to devise ways to help Europe evade sanctions on Iran.

Goldberg was reacting to former Secretary of State John Kerry’s admission last week that he had been meeting with Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif in an effort to persuade Iran to stick with the now-defunct Iran nuclear deal, which President Donald Trump withdrew from in May.

Though Kerry’s successor, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, blasted his freelance diplomacy as “beyond inappropriate,” and others have suggested he had violated the Logan Act — the same archaic legislation once used as a pretext to spy on incoming National Security Adviser Michael Flynn — Kerry’s allies from the Obama administration rallied to his defense.

In response, Goldberg tweeted that he had heard from his sources in Europe that Obama alumni were advising European governments about how to evade new U.S. sanctions against Iran:

Judge Jeanine Unleashes FIRE and FURY on Feinstein, Knocks Her Off Her Senate Seat With One Brutal Fact

Judge Jeanine blasts Democrats and specifically Dianne Feinstein for the desperate and embarrassing “high school letter” debacle they tried to use against SCOTUS nominee Judge Kavanaugh.

The judge points out that Feinstein had the “anonymous letter,” since the start of the hearing. The letter, reportedly claims Judge Brett Kavanaugh “sexually assaulted” a woman in HIGH SCHOOL.

The reason Feinstein didn’t reveal the goofy letter, as Judge Jeanine points out, is because not even she believes it.

There are moments when you literally cringe at other people’s actions. This “letter” was one of those moments – right up there with Corey Bookers “Spartacus” moment.

Watch the video:

Breitbart

Saturday on Fox News Channel’s “Justice,” host Jeanine Pirro hammered Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, for producing revelations of sexual misconduct allegations aimed at U.S. Supreme Court associate justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh after her committee questioned Kavanaugh.

Pirro questioned the timing of the release of the allegations and noted that Feinstein passed on opportunities to question Kavanaugh on the subject.

“Dianne, you’ve been sitting on this letter for almost two months,” she said. “You let Brett Kavanaugh go through days of Senate hearings, meetings with senators, answer an additional 263 pages of 1,300 follow-up written questions — and now you want to character assassinate this man who has undergone six FBI full-field investigations where no such allegation resembling this anonymous nonsense has ever surfaced? Dianne, as a ranking member of the committee interviewing Kavanaugh, how could you possibly let a moment pass without addressing the issue, and Kavanaugh is right in front of you and would have had the opportunity to respond? What were you thinking? Are you stupid? Why would you let it go?”

“Let me tell you why you let it go, Dianne: Because even you didn’t believe it,” she added. “What other reason could there be?”

NEW POLL: Jaws Are Hitting the Floor Over Pope Francis’ Latest Approval Rating

The progressive Pope Francis is having a hard time lately, especially in light of the massive child sex scandals rocking the church, many of which, he’s accused of covering up.

It seems that “Obama’s Pope” is more focused on pushing open-borders and climate change, than fixing the broken church and returning to traditional Catholic values.

Clearly, there’s a war within the Catholic church.

A new poll shows that Pope Francis’ rating has fallen to an all-time low.

Breitbart

Pope Francis’s approval rating has fallen to an all-time low, according to a new CNN poll showing that fewer than 50 percent of Americans now have a favorable opinion of the pontiff.

Fewer than half of Americans (48 percent) now say they have a favorable view of the pope, CNN reported, which represents a significant drop since January 2017, when the pontiff enjoyed a two-thirds approval rating. In December 2013, the year he was elected, Francis’spopularity was higher still, with 72 percent of Americans giving the pope a favorable rating.

Early in his pontificate, Francis stressed the themes of mercy, poverty, and evangelization, which gradually gave way to emphasis on more politically charged issues such as global warming and immigration.

More recently, however, the pope has come under fire for refusing to answer allegations that he was aware of the serial homosexual predation of U.S. Cardinal Theodore McCarrick and yet elevated him to a position of prominence, allowing McCarrick to influence the naming of American bishops.

On August 25, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò—the former papal nuncio to the United States—released an 11-page affidavit alleging that Pope Benedict had imposed sanctions on McCarrick in 2009-2010 forbidding him from traveling, celebrating Mass in public, or participating in public meetings, but that Pope Francis later lifted these sanctions and made McCarrick a close personal counselor.

Nonetheless, when asked about these allegations, Pope Francis dodged questions from reporters, telling them to read the accusations and make their own assessment of their credibility. Asked when was the first time he had heard about the abuses committed by the former cardinal, the pope said he had no comment to make.

Following this performance, several U.S. bishops have criticized the pope for his strategy of silence, noting that such a posture is completely inadequate in the present circumstances.

Other more progressive bishops have defended the pope’s actions, saying that he has more important things to do than answer journalists’ questions.

Cardinal Blase Cupich, for instance, the archbishop of Chicago, recently told  NBC News that answering the grave allegations brought by the former nuncio was not a priority for the pope since he had more important things to worry about, such as the environment and immigration.

“The pope has a bigger agenda. He’s gotta get on with other things, of talking about the environment and protecting migrants and carrying on the work of the Church,” Cardinal Cupich said.

“We’re not going to go down a rabbit hole on this,” he added.

According to the CNN poll, the pope’s ratings have fallen even among U.S. Catholics, dropping by 20 points from 83 percent favorability a year and a half ago to 63 percent now.

Mollie Tibbetts Accused Killer Claims He Has a ‘Constitutional Right’ to Taxpayer Funding

Democrats have created a narrate in this country, where criminal illegals, gang members, and murderers are elevated and given status as “sanctuary victims.”

Because of liberals, these criminals now feel entitled to the same rights you and I have under our Constitution.

Breitbart

The defense attorneys representing the illegal alien accused of murdering 20-year-old Mollie Tibbetts say it is the foreign national’s “constitutional right” to receive American taxpayer funding to fight the murder charges against him.

As Breitbart News reported this week, 24-year-old illegal alien Cristhian Bahena-Rivera has been given $5,000 in U.S. taxpayer dollars to hire an independent investigative team to fight the murder charges against him.

Last month, law enforcement officials announced that Tibbetts’ body was found in a cornfield in her rural hometown of Brooklyn, Iowa after she was last seen jogging on July 18.

Illegal alien Cristhian Bahena-Rivera, a 24-year-old from Mexico, has been charged with first-degree murder in Tibbetts’ death after police say he admitted to confronting and chasing down the young woman. The illegal alien lived in a region of Iowa that was surrounded by sanctuary cities, as Breitbart News noted, and an initial autopsy report revealed that Bahena-Rivera allegedly stabbed Tibbetts to death.

Bahena-Rivera’s defense attorneys argued in court, as noted by KCRG, that the illegal alien has a “constitutional right to a full and complete defense and equal protection under the law” and therefore is entitled to the $5,000 in taxpayer funding to fight the murder charges.

The illegal alien was previously represented by Allan Richards but dropped him less than a month into the charges. Now, Bahena-Rivera has hired Chad Frese and Jennifer Frese, a married couple that practice law together.

According to police, Bahena-Rivera was the last person who saw Tibbetts jogging on the evening of July 18 in Brooklyn, Iowa, security camera footage reveals. That is the night Tibbetts went missing.

The illegal alien told police that Tibbetts was jogging when he saw her. That is when he said he approached Tibbetts and started talking to her. After Tibbetts allegedly told Bahena-Rivera that she would call the police if he did not stop following her, the illegal alien allegedly chased her and says he “blacked out” after this.

The following month, Tibbetts’ body was found in a cornfield where prosecutors say Bahena-Rivera placed corn stalks over her to hide her body.

Bahena-Rivera is being held on a $5 million cash bond. A trial date has yet to be set in the murder case.

BUSTED! Looters Caught on Video Just Got the JUSTICE They Deserve

Thankfully, Hurricane Florence was downgraded to a tropical storm, but sadly, that downgrade means even more looters.

As if the people of North and South Carolina didn’t have it bad enough, they now are forced to deal with no-good looters, roaming the streets and vandalizing and stealing.

Good news is that police are already on it and have apprehended them!
