William Barr Appoints US Attorney to Look into Origins of FBI Probe

Bob Child/Associated Press

Attorney General William Barr has assigned the United States attorney in Connecticut to look into the origins of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s probe into the Trump campaign, according to reports.

Barr has appointed John Durham for the assignment, according to the New York Times. Durham has a history of investigating potential wrongdoing among national security officials.

Barr sent shockwaves through Washington after he acknowledged earlier this year during a hearing that he would review the origins of the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign, and again when he referred to those activities as “spying.”

Specifically, he has said he wants to review whether the FBI had appropriate predicate for spying on the Trump campaign, for example, when it sought a surveillance warrant against former campaign adviser Carter Page. Read the rest of this article HERE.

Sessions Pushes Back – Will Sue California on Sanctuary Laws

by Ian Mason

Update: DOJ filed its complaint, motion for preliminary injunction, and supporting exhibits shortly after 9 PM Eastern Tuesday.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions will speak Wednesday about his Department of Justice’s (DOJ) first-of-its-kind lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of three of California’s “sanctuary” laws, Breitbart News has learned.

Relying on both federal statutes and the U.S. Constitution’s Supremacy Clause, DOJ will ask the U.S. District Court for the District of Eastern California to issue a preliminary injunction blocking the enforcement of these laws intended to protect illegal aliens by preventing cooperation with federal immigration enforcement. DOJ will also seek declaratory judgement that these laws are unconstitutional – “preempted” by federal immigration law – when it files late Tuesday night.

“The Department of Justice and the Trump administration are going to fight these unjust, unfair, and unconstitutional policies that have been imposed on you,” Attorney General Sessions is expected to tell a gathering of California police officers Wednesday in Sacramento. “We are fighting to make your jobs safer and to help you reduce crime in America. And I believe that we are going to win.” Continue reading at breitbart.com.

Judge Jeanine – Opening Statement Feb. 3rd, 2018

On Saturday’s Justice With Judge Jeanine, Judge Pirro talks about the now infamous FISA Memo released by the Select Committee on Intelligence. She referred to the Democrats involved as  “A cabal of arrogant condescending employees of our government.” She said that “They needed a reason to spy, so they made it up.” Here is the full video and the complete transcript of her opening statement:

He was right from the beginning. They were spying on him, they were wiretapping, they were listening in, on Trump Tower. They were so desperate, that he not be elected, that they misled the most secret court of the United States in order to spy on an opposing political campaign in order to undermine a presidential election.

Members of the highest echelon in our FBI and Department of Justice, conspired to prevent an outsider from breaking the establishment stranglehold on the American people. They needed a reason to spy so they made one up. They used a dossier of lies, paid for by a major political party, the Democratic Committee and a presidential candidate, Hillary Rodham Clinton to dupe that court. They swore to facts they knew were lies, to get what they wanted in order to surveil a candidate they could not imagine being president.

A cabal of arrogant condescending employees of our government, whose salaries we pay, thought that we didn’t count. They so wanted Hillary to become president that they violated all the rules, and engaged in a charade so we would think there was a real investigation on the emails. They met on the tarmac. They gave people who didn’t qualify immunity from prosecution without getting the required incriminating evidence.

The FBI then changed lanes with the DOJ, and publicly announced a decision in violation of all ethics rules. And they changed legal definitions, to satisfy their political goal. They thought she’d be elected and no one would ever know, but she wasn’t. So they plotted an insurance policy to bring him down anyway.

You know I’ve often talked about the Clintons, coming on the scene from Arkansas in their bell-bottoms, as pigs at the trough, but they really outdid themselves this time, using a foundation and name only to spread the wealth, while infecting our departments of Justice and the FBI. All the while their comrades weaponized our tools of intelligence. This is what they do in third-world countries, not in America.

It’s time for a holier-than-thou Jim Comey, and his band of conspirators from the McCabe and Strzok on down, to have Lady Justice take off her blindfold and see them for what they are. The arrogance of those seeking a change in a presidential election is unheard of in the United States.

And let me be clear, this is not an attack on the FBI or the Department of Justice, because these agencies are bigger than a couple of tainted inhabitants. This is not about one party, versus another. It’s not even about spying on an American citizen. It’s about something even more. It’s about an attempt to change the course of American history, using the most powerful agencies in the United States government. How dare you!

And that’s my open. Tell me what to think on my Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram, hashtag, JudgJeanine.

Trump DOJ settles lawsuits over Tea Party targeting by Obama IRS

How many minutes seconds of coverage do you think this will get in the mainstream fake news media circus?

The Justice Department settled lawsuits with Tea Party and other conservative groups who say they were unfairly targeted by the IRS, dating back to 2013, when this “Audit the IRS” rally took place in front of the U.S. Capitol (Reuters)

The Trump administration, after years of litigation, has settled lawsuits with Tea Party and other conservative groups who say they were unfairly targeted by the IRS under the Obama administration.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced early Thursday that the Justice Department had entered into settlements with Tea Party groups whose tax-exempt status was significantly delayed by the IRS dating back to 2013, “based solely on their viewpoint or ideology.”

The settlements involve payments to the plaintiffs and an apology from the IRS.

The targeting scandal drew heavy attention in 2013 when the IRS admitted it applied extra scrutiny to conservative groups applying for nonprofit status. Lois Lerner, then head of the Exempt Organizations unit responsible, became the public face of the scandal, though other IRS officials were involved as well.

Sessions said that groups with names involving “Tea Party” or “Patriots,” or those with specific policy positions concerning government spending, were subject to “inappropriate criteria” to “screen” applications. Read the rest of this article at foxnews.com.
