    This is a little off the topic, but it struck me as I watched Christopher Wray’s testimony today that there is a major problem with the entire “biased FBI” discussion caused by semantics, which the boobs in the media, Right and Left, are either exploiting or ignoring depending on the desired spin. All questions and answers by Wray are stated in the PRESENT TENSE. Thus the media spins it as Trump’s war on the FBI. Wary is answering for the FBI he knows today and not Comey’s FBI. That has allowed the media to continue keeping this in the headlines. So, while calmer heads explain the issue and talk in PAST TENSE, the media continue the dialogue as if Trump has an issue with Wray’s FBI. The WH and Wray need to jointly clarify this point or it will continue.

    Yes, I know there are still Obama moles, but to get the optics and discussion properly focused it has to be done.

      Problem with that is Wray is no dummy and certain he knows he is being used this way and allows it. All it would take from him is a simple line in sand delineating the his FBI from previous statement but he never does it.

        Can’t disagree, hopefully somebody “encourages” him to do so. Could also be he looses his political cover if he does, if and when any fireworks start over the Republican investigative efforts.

    Sarah handled this well.

    I think there is a lot of cynical reasoning going around.

    This was not a deep state set up. It was simply a general FBI clearance investigation and internal white house process on processing security clearances.

    It is what it is. No one knows what happened between Porter and his ex wives except Porter and his ex wives.

    I don’t think they would lie to an FBI agent. I also have no idea what Porter told the FBI other than he doesn’t agree with the story version by wives. So the report would list both versions….and someone in WH clearance office had to make a recommendation….and evidently wasn’t prepared to do so yet. The process was ongoing.

    Why is this a big deal requiring press to spend an entire WH briefing on it?

    Btw, if allegations alone are enough to block a security clearance…

    How did Hillary get a clearance? There were all kinds of allegations from multiple third party witnesses that Hillary beat up Bill Clinton on multiple occasions.

      Also, how did they get a clearance as they walked to the WH dragging the dead bodies of all those people behind them?

    • Seven days this Porter episode drags on and on about White House clearances. “He said, she said….” I recall what was an attempted rape or sexual molestation in the White House ( Oval Office?) by the president (alleged). Did any staff head ‘roll’ during that President Clinton scandal?

        I’m with you mickey. 98% of today’s White House Press questions were about Porter.

        This is the narrative shift. Stand by for the IG report and see how many of these traitors ask questions THEN, about Porter.

        I love Sarah “no prisoners” Sanders .

    • Not that I’ve dug very deeply into this, but it sounds like the allegations never turned into legal accusations, with court cases and judgments following after. I’m under the impression that the ex’s waved around the allegations during arbitration to shore up their pieces of the pie and that it went no further than that.

      Yes? No?

    I have to comment on something here. These reporters are retarded and have little to no understanding on how someone gets a security clearence. Let me be clear here….everyone at the White House has a clearence before they even enter the White House on either staff or cabinent. They apply for and recieve an interim clearence then the background investigation begins. Adjutication is the final clearence. The issue with Porter is simple. OPM does the clearences for EVERYONE including the Military. OPM initiated the background on Porter and the FBI had info on a domestic violence issue (unverified and un-prosecuted) the FBI took it upon themselves to drag their feet on this domestic issue and by doing so prevented OPM from completing the adjutication process. In other words the FBI overstepped their authority when all they should have done is send the info to OPM and allow the process to continue so a decision could be made. The FBI didn’t do that they decided to make it a public issue and in doing so they violated Porter’s 4th Amendment right and violated cardinal rules on doing background checks. By the way a domestic violence “allegation” is NOT a disqualifying issue with a clearence adjutication. It isn’t good but by itself is not a disqualifyer. I have done many clearences in my 23 years in Intelligence and I know the process well. The FBI was dead wrong in this case and these reporters need to get educated so they stop being retarded on this issue.

      The lame streamers think someone in the OPM is authorized to prematurely release an incomplete PRIVATE background check or walk down the hall and whisper to someone in the WH staff – psst this guy did this or she did that.
      The process needs to be followed and completed.
      It’s the accepted BUREACRACY.

    This whole Porter thing is plain nuts. You had president Obama, who admitted to be a dope user and pusher in his autobiography, given access to Atomic Codes and all things classified in the US. Then Clinton with all her baggage given a free pass for a clearance to become secretary of state.

    Porter coms along, is tripped up by allegations in his divorce case, he is asked to leave and the US Republic is suddenly in grave peril.

          That is exactly what it was. Which is why they all thrown in digs at PDJT every interview they get.

          Weinstein told a friend he let himself be thrown under the bus to “save the world.” He wanted to spin it as sacrificing himself so that they could take down PDJT.

          They were hoisted in their own petards.

    Didn’t see the press briefing live and because of all of the comments I will skip it all except for the Cho sections. The only interesting section/non Porter section seems to have begun at the 24:30 mark when Ryan asked about the budget allotted for (or as Ryan put it, the price of) Violence Against Women Act about the 24:30 minute mark in the first video posted. April Ryan upset that Mulvaney didn’t tell her about certain things. Sanders answers that would mean that she didn’t ask the question yesterday. Ryan was trying to imply Mulvaney was withholding information.

    I will skip the background check/FBI/Porter drama and spin

    Sarah should have just said, “Bob Porter, who?” When the press lost it, then answer, “What difference does it make now, Porter is out? Let’s move onto the important business of the day.”

    Bob Porter is not important enough to even discuss, he can be replaced easily. Wether he was guilty or not is irrelevant. It became a distraction to the administration and that is one thing you cannot do. If it was a private business he would also be out the door.

    Personal opinion? If Bob is completely innocent of spousal abuse and he was railroaded by his two ex-wives and the media then that is truly sad. If he’s guilty then he got what was coming to him. In the grand scheme of things it no longer matters. The administration cannot spend any time defending anyone especially a lowly staff member without a large public profile. Plenty of others were thrown under the bus for less. I mean no one knew who the heck Bob Porter was until the story broke and he was found to be dating Hope Hicks. They could not abide a soap opera drama playing out week after week with the rabid media. The White House is not the National Enquirer. I believe that Bob was well liked, that he did an outstanding job and that Kelly and Trump wanted to help him but the story was just too big and too distracting to fight back.

    Bob will have to fight this battle on his own…

    This was a waste of time today. Only two questions were asked that had nothing to do with Porter. Of course, FOX’s John Roberts started off the questions on Porter and it went downhill from there. Then, they label it as a WH scandal. What scandal? They did nothing wrong except wait for a security clearance.

  12. What the hell is it with the Porter crap, it’s not like he killed his ex-wife or ex-girlfriend? No one has produced a police report alleging spousal abuse nor was Porter arrested so I’m of the opinion the two broads are either Hillary supporters looking for their five minutes of fame, one has already flown to NYC and allowed Anderson Pooperchuter to exploit her “pain” or the instigators in an argument. I’m betting these women are N-U-T-S, NUTS, conceited elites, upset their queen lost and jealous they’re not being invited to White House parties.

        The wives sounded credible to me. In the interview the one wife said she told the FBI about the abuse, but that she also told them that she thought he was smart and professional and that she thought he should be able to work at the White House and serve his country.

        The guy was fired. Move on. The more they harp on this the dumber they look. All we have to do is sit back and watch them make idiots of themselves.
