Meadows Bombshell: “Sitting Ambassadors” Involved in DOJ Takedown of Trump


Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC) dropped a bombshell last night and revealed to Fox News’ Sean Hannity that “sitting ambassadors” were involved in the DOJ/FBI takedown of President Trump.

Discussing upcoming information to be released, Meadows said, “It’s additional information that is coming out that will show not only was there no collusion, but there was a coordinated effort to take this president down. We talk about the ‘Deep State.’ There are players now, even ambassadors, that are sitting ambassadors that were involved in part of this with the FBI-DOJ.”

The Congressman continued, “As we look at this, it’s time to show that we show the American people what’s out there, declassify some of those documents. I think when the American people see what I’ve seen, they will judge for themselves and know that this has all been a hoax.”

Watch last night’s interview with Hannity below:

*Note: This article has been updated to clarify that Meadows said “sitting ambassadors” not “U.S. ambassadors” were involved in the DOJ/FBI attempted takedown of President Trump.

CNN Poll: Vast Majority of Americans Believe Economy in Good Shape

Well, this must have been painful for them to publish…

A new CNN poll reveals that a whopping 71 percent of Americans believe the economy is in good shape–the highest amount since 2001.

CNN writes:

A majority give the President positive reviews for his handling of the nation’s economy (51% approve), and his overall approval rating has ticked up to 42% in the new poll. The 51% who say they disapprove of the President’s job performance overall represent the lowest share to do so in CNN polling since the start of his presidency.

A plurality of Americans also say they are better off financially now than they were before President Trump took office.

Forty two percent say they are better off now, 41 percent say they are about the same, and 15 percent say they are worse off than they were three years ago.

Senate Votes to End Trump National Emergency Declaration

The Senate voted 59-41 to end the President’s national emergency declaration–a vote that will likely lead to Trump’s first veto, according to Fox News.

At least 12 Republicans voted with Democrats to oppose the declaration:

  • Wicker
  • Rubio
  • Portman
  • Collins
  • Murkowski
  • Toomey
  • Blunt
  • Alexander
  • Romney
  • Paul
  • Moran
  • Lee

Prior to the vote, Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) said, “I’m going to be voting in favor of the resolution of disapproval. This is a constitutional question, it’s a question of the balance of power that is core to our constitution. This is not about the president or border security, in fact I support border security, I support a barrier,” he said.

President Trump declared a national emergency last month after Congress would not provide him with adequate funding to build a barrier along the southern border. The emergency declaration would enable the President to appropriate an extra $3.6 billion for the wall.

This morning, Vice President Pence joined Fox News and urged Republicans to vote in favor of the national emergency declaration.

“A vote against the president’s national emergency declaration is a vote to deny the humanitarian and security crisis that’s happening at our southern border,” he said. So we’re urging every member of the Senate set politics aside to recognize that we have a crisis.”

Lisa Page: Strzok Hoped Mueller Probe Would Lead to Impeaching Trump to Advance his Own Career

Congressional transcripts reveal that former FBI attorney Lisa Page said her lover, disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok, hoped that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation would lead to the impeachment of President Trump and advance his own career.

The transcripts of Page’s July 2018 closed-door interview were released yesterday by ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA).

The Washington Times reports:

Mr. Strzok seemed conflicted about whether it was worth joining the special counsel’s investigation in 2017, given that it might peter out with nothing to show.

Ms. Page told the House committees that didn’t necessarily mean he wanted to find something, but he did have his eye on career advancement and a major takedown of a president would help that.

**LISTEN: Dan discusses the stunning revelations in the Lisa Page transcripts**

“If it’s going to end in impeachment, that’s kind of a big deal,” she said. “I mean, put aside who it is, put aside how we feel about it. You know, that’s monumental. People who are on Watergate are still known as somebody who was on Watergate.”

She insisted that wasn’t an attack on Mr. Trump, though.

“It’s about being on an unbelievably kick-ass team and being a part of, you know, something impressive,” she said.

In the transcripts, Page also appears to confirm that the Obama Department of Justice told the FBI to stand-down in the Clinton email investigation.

Tweeting an excerpt of the transcripts of former FBI lawyer Lisa Page’s testimony, Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) wrote, “Lisa Page confirmed to me under oath that the FBI was ordered by the Obama DOJ not to consider charging Hillary Clinton for gross negligence in the handling of classified information.”

In the excerpt, Ratcliffe said to Page, “But when you say advice you got from the Department, you’re making it sound like it was the Department that told you: You’re not going to charge gross negligence because we’re the prosecutors and we’re telling you we’re not going to —”

“That is correct,” Page interrupted, as Ratcliffe finished his sentence, ” — bring a case based on that.”

President Trump reacted to the release of Page’s transcripts this morning, tweeting, “The just revealed FBI Agent Lisa Page transcripts make the Obama Justice Department look exactly like it was, a broken and corrupt machine. Hopefully, justice will finally be served. Much more to come!”

Ilhan Omar: Trump “Really Not” Human

Embattled freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) suggested President Trump was not human yesterday when asked to clarify her recent remarks in a Politico story in which she was critical of President Obama.

Omar has since backtracked her Politico comments after blasting President Obama for the “caging of kids” at the southern border and blaming his administration for the immigration crisis. She also said his message of “hope and change” was a “mirage.”

A Fox News reporter asked Omar, “Do you think that President Obama is the same as President Trump?” She responded, “Absolutely not. That is silly to even equate the two. One is human. The other is really not.”

Dem Rep. Deletes Idiotic Tweet About Trump Trip to Visit AL Tornado Victims

Congressman Ted Lieu (D-CA) was so desperate to criticize the president, he was forced to apologize on Friday after ignorantly mocking Trump’s trip to Alabama to meet with tornado victims.

The president was visiting the state after it was hit on March 3 with its deadliest tornado outbreak in six years. In all, 23 people were killed–including a 6-year-old boy and 10-year-old girl.

Responding to Trump’s announcement of the trip, Lieu wrote “WE ARE IN THE THIRD WEEK OF THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY! Can you feel the emergency? Is this why [Trump] is going to Alabama, because we need to build a Wall along Alabama’s southern border? Oh wait, I just looked at the map…#FridayMorning Thoughts.”

After realizing that the President was visiting Alabama to meet with the tornado victims, Lieu deleted the tweet and wrote, “I have concluded based on Twitter comments I received that my last tweet was inappropriate. I understand the purpose now of the President’s visit to Alabama. I apologize and am going to delete my tweet.”

The Daily Caller notes that Lieu has a history of attacking the Trump Administration:

“Lieu, whose Twitter bio claims he doesn’t ‘take orders from Putin,’ is a frequent and vociferous critic of the Trump administration. Among his attacks, he has accused Vice President Mike Pence of ‘cloaking [his] hate’ in Christianity, called for a criminal investigation of former U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley, said Justice Brett Kavanaugh is an angry drunk and accused White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders of lying about tax reform.”

Trump to Ask for $8.6 Billion in Wall Funding for 2020 Budget

President Trump is set to request $8.6 billion in border security funding in the FY 2020 budget, according to sources speaking with Fox News.

Fox reports, “According to the sources, Trump will look to secure $5 billion from Congress, plus $3.6 billion from the military construction budget, for the fiscal year 2020. The request is coming on top of the $8.1 billion Trump already has access to, which includes money he’s trying to shift from military accounts after declaring a national emergency.”

The budget outline also seeks funds to create the Space Force as a new branch of the military and looks to cut 2.7 trillion in nondefense spending. Sources say the proposals would balance the budget by 2034.

Office of Management and Budget Acting Director Russ Vought said in a Sunday night statement, “In the last two years, President Trump and this Administration have prioritized reining in reckless Washington spending. The Budget that we have presented to Congress and the American people … embodies fiscal responsibility, and takes aim at Washington’s waste, fraud, and abuse. Our national debt nearly doubled under the previous Administration and now stands at more than $22 trillion. This Budget shows that we can return to fiscal sanity without halting our economic resurgence while continuing to invest in critical priorities.”

REPORT: Cohen Met With Schiff’s Staff Numerous Times Before Hearing

Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen told investigators that House Intelligence Committee staffers for Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) traveled to New York to meet with him multiple times “immediately before” last month’s hearing on Capitol Hill, according to a Fox News report.

Two sources told Fox News that Cohen said the staffers traveled to New York at least four times and met with him for over 10 hours.

Fox News writes, “The sources said the sessions covered a slew of topics addressed during the public hearing before the oversight committee — including the National Enquirer’s “Catch and Kill” policy, American Media CEO David Pecker and the alleged undervaluing of President Trump’s assets.”

Republicans, however, are not convinced of the news and Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH) sent a letter to Cohen’s attorneys demanding answers.

Turner asked if Cohen made contact “with Democratic Members or Democratic staff of SSCI [Senate Select Committee on Intelligence], COR [House Committee on Oversight and Reform], or HPSCI [House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence] prior to his appearances before House and Senate committees last week…” He also asked for specifics, such as the duration of the contacts, where the discussions took place and exactly who was involved.

“These questions are important for the public to understand whether or not they were watching witness testimony, a public hearing, or well-rehearsed theater,” he wrote.

During last month’s hearing, Cohen admitted speaking with Congressman Schiff himself prior to the hearing.

“I spoke to Mr. Schiff about topics that were going to be raised at the upcoming hearing,” Cohen told Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH).

“Whoa,” Jordan responded. “Not just what time you’re going to show up, but what you’re going to talk about? Whoa.”

DNC Refuses to Allow Fox News to Host Primary Debate

The DNC said today that it would not allow Fox News to host a presidential primary debate, according to The Hill.

The organization cited a recent  New Yorker hit piece on Fox News as the reason for denying the network a debate.

DNC Chairman Tom Perez released the following statement: “Recent reporting in The New Yorker on the inappropriate relationship between President Trump, his administration and FOX News has led me to conclude that the network is not in a position to host a fair and neutral debate for our candidates. Therefore, FOX News will not serve as a media partner for the 2020 Democratic primary debates.”

Fox News fired back, telling the DNC that its journalists, Bret Baier, Martha MacCallum and Chris Wallace embodied “the ultimate journalistic integrity and professionalism.”

In a statement, Fox News senior vice president and Managing Editor Bill Sammon said, “They’re the best debate team in the business and they offer candidates an important opportunity to make their case to the largest TV news audience in America, which includes many persuadable voters.”

The New Yorker piece, written by liberal author Jane Mayer accuses Fox News and some of its hosts as peddling propaganda for the Trump administration.

Jeffrey Lord of the American Spectator slammed Mayer’s article and reminded his readers that she is “the the author of attack pieces over the years on every conservative from Justice Clarence Thomas and Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the Koch brothers and Robert Mercer…”

“There is not the slightest sense of irony that in fact Mayer herself, not to mention the New Yorker, the magazine for which she writes, are members in good standing of the Liberal State Media,” he writes.

Lord points out the hypocrisy of the Fox News hit piece, writing:

“Mayer writes, aghast, of Trump appointees Ben Carson, John Bolton, K.T. McFarland, Heather Nauert, and Sebastian Gorka as having previously been contributors or commentators on Fox. Ignoring that all of these people had substantial careers outside of Fox News before their Fox stints. And quite decidedly ignoring Liberal State Media stars like Jay Carney of Time (who became White House press secretary), Rick Stengel, also of Time (the managing editor) who served in the Obama State Department, and Strobe Talbott, another Time alum who served in the Clinton State Department. Which is to say, there is a long revolving-door history of media figures serving in an administration.”

Shady Schiff Appoints Anti-Trump, Steele Dossier Supporter to House Intel Cmte

Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) has hired a proponent of the discredited anti-Trump dossier as the new director of investigations for the House Intelligence Committee.

Yesterday, Schiff announced that former assistant U.S. attorney and NBC News pundit Daniel Goldman would be appointed to the position.

Goldman, as the Washington Times’ Rowan Scarborough points out is a supporter of the widely discredited Trump-Russia dossier which was financed by the DNC and Clinton campaign.

“Mr. Goldman has endorsed Mr. Steele’s tale of how former Trump attorney Michael Cohen secretly traveled to Prague in August 2016 to meet with Vladimir Putin aides and to orchestrate a coverup of Russian hacking,” writes Scarborough.

**LISTEN: Dan discusses the outrageous shift in tactics in the continued witch-hunt against Trump**

The publication points to a Dec. 27 tweet where Goldman responded to a McClatchy news service report that claimed a cell tower detected a ping from Cohen’s phone near Prague.

Goldman tweeted, “a few reax points: 1) If Mueller knows this, and Cohen came clean (as they say he did), why not plead to lying to Congress about this? 2) critical corroboration of Steele Dossier. Nothing has been undermined thus far. 3) collusion!! 4) big cover-up.”

Fox News points out that Goldman has a long history of criticizing President Trump on social media.

Last year, he tweeted, “Trump ‘looks bad’ because he committed a crime, nothing else. He is not above the law,” adding the hashtag #TrumpResign.

He also wrote that Trump “doesn’t care about the country,” and referred to him as “shameful.”
