Hoft: Joe di Genova: John Huber Investigation of Clinton Foundation is a Farce – Never Even Started
“Former US Attorney Joe di Genova says that the Huber investigation into the Clinton Foundation is a farce. Huber hasn’t even interviewed the top witness in the case whom di Genova represents! John Huber is the special prosecutor tapped by former AG Jeff Sessions to investigate FISA abuses by Obama’s DOJ/FBI. Sessions nominated Huber to perform this investigation after numerous calls for a special investigation into the Clinton Foundation and the Deep State. But months ago we reported that nothing was getting done. Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee say John Huber still has not interviewed key witnesses and they want answers. […] Huber has the authority to impanel a grand jury, however it appears he has done nothing since Jeff Sessions appointed him in the Fall of 2017 to investigate FISA abuses. The Clinton Foundation whistleblowers, Mr. Moynihan and Mr. Doyle told the committee they had to send their evidence to the Huber investigation THREE TIMES because they kept losing it. In October, Congressman Meadows and Jim Jordan said they wanted to haul John Huber in before Congress to testify because they had not received any updates on Huber’s investigation.”

That’s supposed eventually to bring both sides to the table, and in the past that’s what always happened. Except for that one time, in 1861. Now it’s happening again.”
Morrissey: New York City: Let’s repeal this gun control law. Gun owners: Hell, no!
“Has the world gone crazy? The city of New York, which has rarely met a gun-control law it hasn’t loved, wants to repeal one. Gun owners in The Big Apple want to stop the repeal action and keep the law on the books, and are flooding the comment process in an effort to stop the city from changing the law. What gives? In short, both sides are counting the chairs on the Supreme Court: . . .”
