      Just because a foreigner is in the US does not mean they are an immigrant. Foreigners legally in the US are tourists, or visa holders, or if they are following immigration law, immigrants. All other foreigners in the US are illegal aliens and subject to deportation.

      Don’t call them illegal immigrants or undocumented immigrants – they are not immigrants. They are illegal aliens.

      I never knew anything about that when it was happening. Interesting to read now.

      During Russia’s hacking campaign against the United States, intelligence agencies could peer, at times, into Russian networks and see what had been taken. Early last year, F.B.I. agents received a batch of hacked documents, and one caught their attention.

      The document, which has been described as both a memo and an email, was written by a Democratic operative who expressed confidence that Ms. Lynch would keep the Clinton investigation from going too far, according to several former officials familiar with the document. […] If Ms. Lynch announced that the case was closed, and Russia leaked the document, Mr. Comey believed it would raise doubts about the independence of the investigation.

      So this is the Amanda Renteria document. Is this why Lynch didn’t want to exonerate Clinton herself and she wanted Comey to do it?

        Also in that article is a description of the tarmac meeting. Sky Harbor is a big airport, right? How is it possible that Lynch’s plane and Clinton’s plane were in such close proximity that they were able to “accidentally” see each other? Didn’t Lynch think it might look improper? (No answer necessary. I don’t know why I even bothered typing that. I’m just so incredulous!)

          How pathetic is this?

          When Ms. Lynch’s staff members noticed Mr. Clinton boarding the plane, a press aide hurriedly called the Justice Department’s communications director, Melanie Newman, who said to break up the meeting immediately. A staff member rushed to stop it, but by the time the conversation ended, Mr. Clinton had been on the plane for about 20 minutes.

          Does anyone really think it would take 20 minutes to make a phone call and then stop a meeting? Didn’t the NYT find it odd and pursue a more reasonable answer? (banging head on computer) This is just CRAZY. Hillary and Lynch and Obama, Abedin, and all of the traitors always got a pass!

            For what it’s worth Q said the good guys tipped off the reporter about thevmeeting which was supposed to be secret. Thats how we learned about it. Also, the good guys have a recording of that tarmac meeting. The purposefully “misfiled” it so when the Rats looked to see if there was a record it appeared there wasn’t. Whoops. Too late now. Trump is charge. Lynch is another person who used a private gmail account to escape detection like Clinton and Obama did. Actually, that whole evil cabal used private emails. If Hillary went down for it then they all did.

              For what it’s worth, Q was only repeating what was originally reported, that the staff on the tarmac were told not to speak about the meeting but one of them called the local news.

              People follow Q as though he’s some kind of prophet. Just read for yourself, you don’t need some kind of guru who speaks in riddles to facilitate research.

              There are reports that local police saw what was happening and let the media know. I doubt there is any video of it because Lynch remained on her airplane (how convenient) after everyone else had exited (how convenient) and Clinton just happened to stop by (how convenient) and asked to visit Lynch on her plane (how convenient) so the clandestine meeting was held there. And the FBI refused to allow anyone to document, that’s what I read.

    Wray reports to Sessions. Like his boss, Wray sees no evil. Do not be disappointed when Sessions, the man who gave Lois Lerner a pass, oversees tongue lashing, wrist slapping, and firing of the Obama DOJ, FBI rank and file miscreants…. and lets the upper crust skate.

      MVW You are mistaken. The AAG is always in charge of the FBI. Right now thats Rosenstein. He will soon be gone and Trumps guy, who does not need Swampy Senate approval, steps in. BTW it would have been idiotic for Sessions to go after Lerner with the FBI and DOJ still so corrupt and the Left controlling the courts. Thats one reason Trump has been pushing to get his judicial nominees approved. You could help by calling Mitch and your Senators weekly on this. Why not trust President Trump instead of inventing horror movies? Celebrate and enjoy his historic presidency.

    So according to the 10PM FoxNewsRadio report, Sen. Ted Cruz is going to introduce “emergency legislation” to stop “the separation of families”.
    What is Ted Cruz going to do to STOP the invasion of illegal aliens? Probably nothing.
    I think Ted Cruz is going this as a first step to going for the 2020 Republican Presidential nomination.

      The provisions of the legislation, according to the news release, include:

      Doubling the number of federal immigration judges, from roughly 375 to 750.
      Authorizing new temporary shelters with accommodations to keep families together.
      Mandating that immigrant families be kept together, absent aggravated criminal conduct or threat of harm to children.
      Providing for expedited processing and review of asylum cases so that — within 14 days — those who meet the legal standards will be granted asylum and those who do not will be immediately returned to their home countries.

      They won’t be released, they’ll just be kept together. I’m OK with that.

        Well, simply by taking the children across the border, they are guilty of child endangerment. I live in Az.

      How about the US Military defend the US border and prevent illegal entry.

      We don’t need more judges, we don’t need more shelters for illegal aliens, we need no illegal entry.

        Yep. This is getting ridiculous.

        STOP illegal entry. Period.

        All this will do is continue the practise and make it more attractive to come her illegally.

        Cruz is such a jerk. Mr. Grandstander. ugh.

    On a more general look, I had a thought, tonite:

    Whenever Nixons name is mentioned, sure Watergates the first thing, but then they always mention how he DID open up China, and some will even mention ending Vietnam war.

    Its his ‘Legacy’, and its viewed as a ‘miced bag’.

    With Obummer, DJT is sysrematically stripping away EVERYTHING that he or his supporters could point to as positive parts of his ‘Legacy’ (not that WE would see them as positives, but THEY would).

    So, TPP, gone. Paris climate accord, gone. Iran deal, gone. ‘Got us out of 2008 financial crisis, GONE, sustained anemic growth is hardly ‘getting us out’, so GONE.

    Point is, stripping all these positives first, so ONLY thing on his legacy will be politically weaponised ALL the depts of executive branch, unparalleled corruption and criminality. Auite a legacy, BHO.
