Another Media-Fueled Collusion Narrative Falls Apart

It’s a familiar pattern in the Trump era: A partisan figure tasked with thwarting the president—say, Special Counsel Robert Mueller or former FBI Director James Comey—is portrayed as a fair-minded arbiter of truth and justice, a vanguard of our highest democratic institutions, bravely taking on the Bad Orange Man. Such figures are cast

Why Are Democrats Obstructing Justice?

It was a shocking acknowledgment from a fierce (and profane) Russian collusion propagandist. “The Democrats have a clock ticking,” warned CNN analyst Phil Mudd on Tuesday. “If they can’t get things underway before the Department of Justice says, ‘here’s our report on how the [Trump campaign] investigation was initiated, they’re in trouble because

Barr: ‘Small Group at the Top’ Directed Investigation into ‘Bogus’ Collusion

In a wide-ranging interview Friday on "CBS This Morning," Attorney General William Barr once again expressed his concerns about the mishandling of the FBI investigation into the Trump presidential campaign in 2016.

Another Mueller-Comey One-Two Punch

Most Americans are unaware of the long history of comradeship and chicanery between Special Counsel Robert Mueller and former FBI Director James Comey. For nearly two decades, the pair have held the same jobs, earned the same foes, and swaggered in the same rarified sphere of political prestige and privilege. This week, the

Comey’s FBI Ignored Sexual Abuse Victims To Play Politics

As the political world anticipates an internal Justice Department review of misconduct by James Comey’s FBI related to the Trump campaign probe, hundreds of American parents await another report: Why Comey’s FBI delayed an investigation into one of the country’s most notorious child sex abusers, former USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar. The

WashPo Warns of Politicized Intelligence: Hilarity Ensues

The American news media need a collective neck brace to halt the self-inflicted whiplash now endemic among journalists following President Trump's order to declassify materials related to "surveillance activities during the 2016 Presidential election." Fresh off the heels of demanding that Attorney General William Barr release a fully-unredacted Mueller report, including grand jury proceedings and

Loretta Lynch Deals Another Blow to FBI’s Cover-Up Story

The implausible justification for why James Comey’s FBI opened an investigation into the Trump campaign—a drunken encounter between a low-level campaign aide and an Australian diplomat in the spring of 2016, we’ve been told—is falling apart quickly. And the newly-released testimony of former Attorney General Loretta Lynch just gave Comey’s cover-up story another

Why Did Obama Allow Comey to Brief Trump on the Russian Prostitute Story?

We are three years into the biggest political scandal in American history and former President Barack Obama has yet to be asked about his role in orchestrating the international subterfuge that Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with the Kremlin to rig the 2016 presidential election. Not one journalist has posed a single question to

The FISA Footnote that Could Doom Collusion Hoaxsters

It is the controversial footnote to the most infamous application in American political history: The application submitted to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court for approval to wiretap Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
