        May want to consider reassigning the reporter who filed this story! James Wolfe was not a “senior Trump aid.” Rather, he was a Senate Intelligence Committee staffer. Senate and intelligence-what an oxymoron.

      Someone should go to DM and tell them that error is like saying that an aide to a committee in their House of Commons is an “aide to the Queen” just because he was an aide to somebody in their government while she was the monarch.

      Simple.

      As Sundance has pointed out numerous times, the Senate Intel Committee is owned lock, stock, and barrel by the Deep State, including it’s GOP members.

      This “statement” by this committee comes as a surprise to no one.

        The sleazebag, Warner is pushing this in the face of the fact that he, himself, was guilty of involvement with the Russians. The chairman of that committee, Richard Burr, will do anything to keep Warner happy.

      Everyone thought at the time that there was no way Trump would win. So, in order to weaken Hillary, thus making her an ineffective president, the Russians tried to give Trump a boost. They sure would have preferred Hillary who was already weak, rather than Trump who was “unpredictable” at best. Too bad Ruskies, too bad Puty baby, Trump and we won. Won bigly.

    Nolte: Brian Ross and 15 Others Whose Anti-Trump Mania Cost Them Their Media Jobs

    https://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism/2018/07/03/nolte-ross-15-others-anti-trump-mania-cost-media-jobs/

    QUOTE:

    “is it unreasonable to add these 57 names to the list (above)? To add the names of all those fake journalists, like Glenn “Kiss the Girls And Make Them Cry” Thrush, Mark Halperin, Charlie Rose, Matt Lauer, Ryan Lizza, Garrison Keillor, Matt Taibbi, and the rest, who were disgraced for their alleged #MeToo crimes?

    But look at what happened with #MeToo. Talk about a boomerang effect. Hundreds of members of two powerful left-wing institutions –the establishment media and Hollywood — were disgraced and burned down forever.

    Meanwhile…

    Donald Trump is still president…

    And did I mention he will be choosing his second Supreme Court nominee in just a few days?

    Tee hee.”

    A Rasmussen poll in late June revealed a majority of Americans — 59 percent — fear that those opposing President Donald Trump will “resort to violence”.

    “59 percent of all voters are concerned that those opposed to President Trump’s policies will resort to violence, with 33 percent who are Very Concerned,” Rasmussen wrote in its poll report.

    And Rasmussen reported that Democrats are more worried about a clash (37 percent) than Republicans.

      I have posted several times that:

      1) A million dollar fine plus up to 30 years for what Awan IS charged with.

      2) Meanwhile, Reality Winner, who plead guilty to the other charge against Awan got only FIVE YEARS.

      Maybe Awan should not have got any deal, or maybe what he gave up is worth five years less, in order to take down bigger fish.

      Either way he still goes to prison unless charges he WAS indicted for are dropped or his case is somehow lost, in court, by the prosecution. Remains to be seen.

      But I wish people would stop acting like Awan is free.

    John McCain: Since there is no longer a state recall option, and he has not “served” the people of Arizona for the last year (putting aside the question of whether he ever did), does anyone think that a petition to the governor along with masses of open letters to newspapers etc. would have any effect? Hopefully to prevent the office from being transferred like an earldom or something?

    Seems like all the Arizonans who complain about him, with good reason, would be better served by pre-emptive action rather than waiting until you are summarily served – or not – by Cindy.

    On the Flynn front, the parties filed a joint pleading yesterday to answer Judge Sullivan’s question at last week’s oft-postponed sentencing hearing why he should order a presentencing report when the matter is not yet ready for sentencing. That pleading explained that,

    “3. Although this matter is not yet ready for sentencing, the Parties intend to request that a sentencing hearing be scheduled promptly, once the matter becomes ready for sentencing. For that reason, the parties have sought to initiate the process of preparing the presentence investigation report. The parties believed this approach would put the Court in a position to schedule a sentencing hearing, if the Court were to so choose, on a more expedited schedule at such time as the matter becomes ready for sentencing.

    “4. However the Court decides to proceed in regard to the presentence investigation report process, the parties will notify the Court as soon as the matter is ready to be scheduled for a sentencing hearing.”

    In response, Judge Sullivan today “sua sponte orders a status hearing for July 10, 2018 at 10:00 AM in Courtroom 24A. Mr Flynn is directed to attend.”

    The pleading was signed for Robert Mueller by Robert Van Grack and new Senior Assistant Special Counsel ZAINAB AHMED, who made his first appearance, and for Flynn by Robert Kelner of Covington & Burling.

    This again seems strange, in that the extent of the defendant’s cooperation in the Government’s ongoing investigations was explicitly stated in the plea deal to factor into his sentence.

    In any event, reporters should cover this hearing, where the Judge has reason to want General Flynn present, which may include questioning him directly in connection with the matter. I wonder if the Judge worries that poor Flynn cannot afford his high priced counsel, and is being taken for some sort of ride, as a result.

    President Donald Trump has responded to comments from a prominent Iranian official who accused the Obama administration of sweetening its Iran nuclear deal by granting American citizenship to thousands of Iranians, including relatives of officials.

    “Just out that the Obama Administration granted citizenship, during the terrible Iran Deal negotiation, to 2,500 Iranians – including to government officials. How big (and bad) is that?” Trump stated in a July 3 tweet.

      No, Ruth will be retiring real soon. At least I hope so, for our sake, AND hers. I don’t hate the woman, and she’s obviously having some serious mental issues recently, so PLEASE Ruth, use what time you have left to enjoy life with friends and family.

      And then once she retires, I fully expect to see Breyer follow not far behind. He’ll know that his vote is now meaningless in most cases, so what’s the point? He’s still fairly “young” (for a retiring Supreme) so I think he’d be a fool to stick around. This could easily be a 7-2 Trump court within the next year.

    And of course you can’t talk about corruption & big $$$ without considering a Clinton tie in.

    Snip from article below.
    “But while that may not be illegal under Malaysian law (according to Malaysia’s attorney general, at least), it’s still pretty troubling. When reporters at the Washington Post and Wall Street Journal found, last year, that the Clinton Global Initiative had received donations from a number of foreign nations, it created a major controversy for Hillary Clinton’s campaign. The fear was that either she or her husband was being improperly influenced by foreign nations.

    Now imagine that instead of smaller donations to a charity, the money was $681 million directly to Clinton’s personal accounts, meant to fund her campaign. Imagine again that the money came from Saudi Arabia, a dictatorship with one of the world’s worst human rights records. People would lose it, and rightly so.”

    Judge Raymond Kethledge’s interview with President Donald Trump has placed him in serious contention to succeed Justice Anthony Kennedy on the U.S. Supreme Court, multiple sources tell The Daily Caller News Foundation.

    Sources with knowledge of the process told TheDCNF that Kethledge had a strong interview with the president, and remains under very serious consideration.

    Other knowledgeable sources say Judge Amy Barrett’s interview with Trump was satisfactory and that she remains viable for a Supreme Court appointment, either now or in the future. The strength of Kethledge’s meeting, however, seems to have scrambled the field.
