In this episode I address the real story behind the Democrat’s shutdown tactics. There’s more here than they’re letting on. I also discuss the explosive new claims made by Devin Nunes in his latest Fox News interview. Finally, I address the dangers presented by the rapid rise of China.
Baker told Congress he argued with other members of the FBI, including disgraced former director, James Comey about the Clinton investigation.
“My original belief … after having conducted the investigation and towards the end of it, then sitting down and reading a binder of her materials, I thought that it was alarming, appalling, whatever words I said, and argued with others about why they thought she shouldn’t be charged,” he said.
Baker also seemed to take issue with the handling of the Trump-Russia investigation.
Confronted with a damning summary of abnormalities, bias, and omissions, which transpired during the investigation, Baker told Congress that the investigation indeed was “highly unusual.”
“I had a jaundiced eye about everything, yes. I had skepticism about all this stuff. I was concerned about all of this. This whole situation was horrible, and it was novel and we were trying to figure out what to do, and it was highly unusual,” Baker told lawmakers.
Baker resigned from the FBI in May 2018 and it was recently revealed that he is the subject of a criminal leak investigation.
During his October testimony, Baker’s attorney, Daniel Levin told lawmakers, “You may or may not know, [Baker has] been the subject of a leak investigation … a criminal leak investigation that’s still active at the Justice Department.”
Baker’s congressional testimony made headlines last fall when it was revealed that he believed Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was “serious” when telling colleagues he wanted to secretly record President Trump.
While Baker himself was not in the room with Rosenstein when he made the comments, two of his associates were: FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and FBI lawyer, Lisa Page. Both McCabe and Page allegedly took Rosenstein seriously and conveyed that to Baker.

“So another day of Hillary Clinton’s emails and the Steele dossier. This while the President of the United States is lying about the FBI, attacking the FBI and attacking the rule of law in this country. How does that make any sense at all?” Comey said to reporters.
He then attacked Republicans and Fox News, saying, “Republicans used to understand that the actions of a president matter, that words of a president matter, the rule of law matters, and the truth matters…At some point, someone has to stand up and in the face of fear of Fox News, fear of their base, fear of mean tweets, stand up for the values of this country.”
Comey also attacked Fox News reporter Catherine Herridge. When asked if he bears any responsibility for the FBI’s reputation taking a “big hit,” the former FBI director responded, “No. The FBI’s reputation has taken a big hit because the President of the United States, with his acolytes, has lied about it constantly, and in the face of those lies, a whole lot of good people who watch your network believe that nonsense! That’s a tragedy. That will be undone eventually, but that damage has nothing to do with me.”
In a video posted to Twitter, Trump says “The Democrats are absolute hypocrites. All along they’ve been supporting walls and supporting fences and supporting all sorts of border security.”
The video then cuts to clips of Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama all sounding like Republicans when it comes to border security and immigration.
“Illegal immigration is wrong. Plain and simple,” says Schumer in the video.
Hillary Clinton brags about how she voted for the border wall. “I voted numerous times when I was a senator to build a barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in,” she says.
“We simiply cannot allow people to pour into the united states undetected, undocumented, unchecked,” says Obama.
Trump says Democrats no longer support the wall and border security because they’d rather oppose him.
“The fact is they’ve always supported fences and walls and partitions, but you know what? They only don’t want to do it because of me.”
In this episode I address the emergence of three Clinton Foundation whistleblowers and what they may offer in congressional testimony. I also address the explosive new developments in the LTG Mike Flynn case. Finally, I address the latest media false narratives about the economy and the Trump tax cuts.
U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan ordered Mueller’s team to hand over any “302s or memoranda” related to Flynn’s questioning by 3:00 p.m. ET Friday.
The 302 reports are summaries of FBI interviews. Usually written soon after the questioning, Flynn’s report was dated August 22, 2017–nearly seven months after his meeting with FBI agents took place.
The judge’s brief order states that Mueller can choose to file the materials under seal if necessary. Sullivan also ordered the Flynn team to turn over the documents backing up its assertions. The judge could determine why the FBI apparently took a significantly more aggressive tack in handling the Flynn interview than it did during other similar matters, including the agency’s sit-downs with Hillary Clinton and ex-Trump adviser George Papadopoulos. Flynn is set to be sentenced next Tuesday — but Sullivan’s move might delay that date, or lead to other dramatic and unexpected changes in the case. Sullivan even has the authority to toss Flynn’s guilty plea and the charge against him if he concludes that the FBI interfered with Flynn’s constitutional right to counsel, although he has given no indications that he intends to do so.
On Tuesday, Flynn’s attorneys filed a sentencing memo in which they cited the 302 report from his interview with the FBI which show then-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe urging Flynn to not have an attorney present for the questioning.
“I explained that I thought the quickest way to get this done was to have a conversation between [Flynn] and the agents only,” McCabe wrote. “I further stated that if LTG Flynn wished to include anyone else in the meeting, like the White House counsel for instance, that I would need to involve the Department of Justice. [Flynn] stated that this would not be necessary and agreed to meet with the agents without any additional participants.”
Flynn’s report also stated, “The agents did not provide Gen. Flynn with a warning of the penalties for making a false statement under 18 U.S.C. 1001 before, during, or after the interview.”
Before the interview, McCabe and other FBI officials “decided the agents would not warn Flynn that it was a crime to lie during an FBI interview because they wanted Flynn to be relaxed, and they were concerned that giving the warnings might adversely affect the rapport.”
The Flynn memo points out that the 302 report reveals that FBI agents strategized on how to handle Flynn if he did not remember exactly what he had said in his phone conversation with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak because the agents had already read transcripts of the phone call.
The memo states that FBI officials decided if “Flynn said he did not remember something they knew he said, they would use the exact words Flynn used … to try to refresh his recollection. If Flynn still would not confirm what he said … they would not confront him or talk him through it.”
Meadows spoke with Fox News’ Martha MacCallum last night where he revealed a hearing would take place this week to go over 6,000 pages of evidence from the Clinton Foundation investigation.
When asked that the next steps would be for the investigation, Meadows replied, “… we’re going to be having a hearing this week, not only covering over some of those 6,000 pages that you’re talking about, but hearing directly from three whistleblowers that have actually spent the majority of the last two years investigating this.”
The Congressman also described the allegations from the whistleblowers as “explosive.”
“Some of the allegations they make are quite explosive,” he said. “…just look at the contributions. Now everybody’s focused on the contributions for the Clinton Foundation and what has happened just in the last year. But if you look at it, it had a very strong rise, the minute she was selected as secretary of state. It dipped down when she was no longer there. And then rose again, when she decided to run for president. So there’s all kinds of allegations of pay-to-play and that kind of thing.”
According to federal tax filings, donations to the Clinton Foundation dropped by $36 million the year after Hillary Clinton ran for president.
The filings, obtained by the New York Post, show that “contributions plunged from $62,912,331 in 2016 to $26,566,825 in 2017.”
The Clintons and their foundation have a long history of troubling dealings, many of which are outlined in the bestselling book by Peter Schweizer, Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich.
Consider the below list as a small example of some of the questionable behavior of the Clintons as laid out by Breitbart:
- Hillary’s Foundation Hid a $2.35 Million Foreign Donation from the Head of the Russian Govt’s Uranium Company that Had Business Before Hillary Clinton’s State Dept.—a Clear Violation of the Memorandum of Understanding with the Obama Administration
- Bill Clinton Bagged $500,000 for a Speech in Moscow Paid for by a Kremlin-linked Bank
- Hillary’s Brother Sits on the Board of a Mining Company that Scored an Extremely Rare “Gold Exploitation Permit” in Haiti as Hillary and Bill Clinton Disbursed Billions of U.S. Taxpayer Dollars in Haiti
- Hillary’s Approval of the Russian Takeover of Uranium One Transferred 20% of All U.S. Uranium to the Russian Govt.
- At Least $26 Million of the Clintons’ Wealth Comes from Speaking Fees by Companies and Organizations that are Also Major Clinton Foundation Donors
In this episode I address the explosive new revelations about a Clinton Foundation whistleblower and the devastating allegations being aired. I also discuss a socialist’s appearance on the Tucker Carlson show and why it matters for the 2020 presidential election.
U.S. District Court Judge Royce C. Lamberth called Clinton’s use of a private email system, “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency,” and ruled:
… the Court ORDERS the parties to meet and confer to plan discovery into (a) whether Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email while Secretary of State was an intentional attempt to evade FOIA; (b) whether the State Department’s attempts to settle this case in late 2014 and early 2015 amounted to bad faith; and (c) whether State has adequately searched for records responsive to Judicial Watch’s requests.
Lamberth also slammed the Obama State and Justice Departments, saying they “fell far short:”
… his [President Barack Obama’s] State and Justice Departments fell far short. So far short that the court questions, even now, whether they are acting in good faith. Did Hillary Clinton use her private email as Secretary of State to thwart this lofty goal [Obama announced standard for transparency]? Was the State Department’s attempt to settle this FOIA case in 2014 an effort to avoid searching – and disclosing the existence of – Clinton’s missing emails? And has State ever adequately searched for records in this case?
…At best, State’s attempt to pass-off its deficient search as legally adequate during settlement negotiations was negligence born out of incompetence. At worst, career employees in the State and Justice Departments colluded to scuttle public scrutiny of Clinton, skirt FOIA, and hoodwink this Court.
The judge also said the current Department of Justice “made things worse:”
The current Justice Department made things worse. When the government last appeared before the Court, counsel claimed, ‘it is not true to say we misled either Judicial Watch or the Court.’ When accused of ‘doublespeak,’ counsel denied vehemently, feigned offense, and averred complete candor. When asked why State masked the inadequacy of its initial search, counsel claimed that the officials who initially responded to Judicial Watch’s request didn’t realize Clinton’s emails were missing, and that it took them two months to ‘figure  out what was going on’… Counsel’s responses strain credulity. [citations omitted]Discovery was granted because the judge believes the government’s response to Judicial Watch’s Benghazi FOIA request “smacks of outrageous conduct.”
Lamberth cited an email discovered from Judicial Watch’s lawsuit in which Clinton acknowledged Benghazi was a terrorist attack immediately after it happened and asked, “Did State know Clinton deemed the Benghazi attack terrorism hours after it happened, contradicting the Obama Administration’s subsequent claim of a protest-gone-awry?”
Lamberth’s questions continued:
Did the Department merely fear what might be found? Or was State’s bungling just the unfortunate result of bureaucratic redtape and a failure to communicate? To preserve the Department’s integrity, and to reassure the American people their government remains committed to transparency and the rule of law, this suspicion cannot be allowed to fester.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton called the court ruling “historic” and says it “raises concerns about the Hillary Clinton email scandal and government corruption that millions of Americans share.”
“Judicial Watch looks forward to conducting careful discovery into the Clinton email issue and we hope the Justice Department and State Department recognize Judge Lamberth’s criticism and help, rather than obstruct, this court-ordered discovery,” he said.
The Daily Caller reports, “Seeing the duo at the Financial Centre in Sugar Land, Texas, on Dec. 4 runs anywhere from $11 to $80 depending on the seat quality. On resale sites, some sellers are asking for as much as $531 a ticket — although it’s unclear if they’ll be able to find a buyer at that price.”
Last week, at their Toronto event, the Clintons sold about 3,300 tickets in a venue that holds over 19,000 seats for hockey games. That means roughly 83% of the seats in were empty. That event saw some last minute tickets being sold for as little as $5.
The tour, titled, An Evening with the Clintons, will hit 13 cities between now and May of 2019. The paid speaking event is being promoted by Live Nation which describes the speaking tour as a “‘one-of-a-kind conversations with the two leaders as they tell their stories from some of the most impactful moments in modern history.” Live Nation says the tour “will feature joint on stage conversations with the two leaders sharing stories and inspiring anecdotes that shaped their historic careers in public service, while also discussing issues of the day and looking towards the future.”
