peaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) slammed Attorney General William Barr for his “partisan” response to the Mueller report and called on the Special Counsel to testify before Congress.
In a joint statement released early this morning, the congressional leaders said:
Attorney General Barr’s regrettably partisan handling of the Mueller report, including his slanted March 24th summary letter, his irresponsible testimony before Congress last week, and his indefensible plan to spin the report in a press conference later this morning — hours before he allows the public or Congress to see it — have resulted in a crisis of confidence in his independence and impartiality. We believe the only way to begin restoring public trust in the handling of the Special Counsel’s investigation is for Special Counsel Mueller himself to provide public testimony in the House and Senate as soon as possible. The American people deserve to hear the truth.”
House Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler also attacked Barr in a press conference last night where he accused the attorney general of “waging a media campaign on behalf of President Trump.”
“Rather than letting the facts of the report speak for themselves, the attorney general has taken unprecedented steps to spin Mueller’s nearly 2 year investigation,” said Nadler.
“The fact that the attorney general is not releasing even the redacted report to Congress until after his press conference will again result in the report being presented through his own words, rather than the words of special counsel Mueller,” the congressman continued.
epublican House Intelligence Committee members issued a scathing letter
today calling for Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) to resign.
The letter slams Schiff for claiming to have evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, even after the Special Counsel investigation exonerated the campaign of such allegations.
“Despite [the Special Counsel’s] findings, you continue to claim to the media that there is “significant evidence of collusion.” Further you have stated you “will continue to investigate the counterintelligence issues, that is, is the president or people around him compromised in any way by hostile foreign power?” Your willingness to continue to promote a demonstrably false narrative is alarming,” the letter states.

The Republicans claim Schiff abused his position to “knowingly promote false information,” damaging the integrity of the Intelligence committee and undermining faith in U.S. government institutions.
“Your actions both past and present are incompatible with your duty as Chairman of this Committee,” the letter stated. “We have no faith in your ability to discharge your duties in a manner consistent with your Constitutional responsibility and urge your immediate resignation as Chairman of this Committee.”
The letter was signed by every single Republican member of the committee: Devin Nunes (CA), Michael Conaway (TX), Michael Turner (OH), Brad Wenstrup (OH), Chris Stewart (UT), Rick Crawford (AR.), Elise Stefanik (NY), Will Hurd (TX), and John Ratcliffe (TX).
ormer New York City mayor and Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani is calling for an investigation into the origins of the collusion allegations against the Trump campaign.
Speaking with Fox and Friends this morning, Giuliani said he wanted to see an investigation into who “invented” the collusion accusations.
“This had to come from somewhere. It didn’t just come out of thin air,” he said. “I want to know who did it, who fueled it, who paid for it, because the person who did it, and the group who did it, knows it’s untrue because they invented it.”

“It was thorough and it was conducted by people who had a bias to get him, people who didn’t want him elected,” Giuliani continued. “It was conducted by people who had every motive to get him and tried every tactic and some I don’t approve of to try to get him and to try to get people to lie.”
Giuliani also slammed the “rabid partisans” on the Special Counsel team.
“It’s quite clear that this group was hardly a group of Trump fans,” he said. “It’s made up of almost all Democrats–some of them very very rabid partisans. Including one who was a lawyer for the Clinton Foundation…another one who’s a notorious prosecutor who has been in ethical trouble all throughout his career. They conducted an investigation as if this were a terrorism case…or a organized crime case on their obstruction of justice and conspiracy theory.”
Public trust in Special Counsel Robert Mueller is eroding.
A new USA Today/Suffolk poll finds that just 28 percent of Americans say they have a lot of trust in Mueller–the lowest level to date. Meanwhile, half of Americans agree with President Trump that he is a victim of a “witch hunt.”
So, why are Americans losing faith in Mueller and siding with the president? Are they finally seeing through the Russia investigation for the hoax that it really is?
On yesterday’s podcast, Dan gave us a stunning breakdown of just how corrupt Robert Mueller’s probe is and connected all of the key special counsel players to the Obama and Clinton teams.
From Mueller’s Clinton-supporting “pit bull” Andrew Weissmann, to a special counsel source who just happens to have legal representation from Obama’s former White House counsel–everything about the Mueller probe reeks of corruption.
Watch the above video for the shocking breakdown of Mueller’s fraudulent investigation.
ccording to a filing from the Special Counsel’s office, Robert Mueller’s witch hunt still has “several ongoing investigations” relating to the Russia probe, according to Reuters.
In a filing with the U.S. District Court in Washington, the Special Counsel asked to delay sentencing for former Trump deputy campaign chairman Rick Gates: “Gates continues to cooperate with respect to several ongoing investigations, and accordingly the parties do not believe it is appropriate to commence the sentencing process at this time,” states the filing.
Gates pleaded guilty in February 2018 to lying to investigators and conspiracy against the United States.
Politico points out that the filing may signal that “Gates may be helping federal prosecutors in New York who are investigating Trump’s inauguration committee, which is facing questions about the source of its donations and how it spent its record haul.”
In this episode I address the troubling new revelations regarding the extent the DOJ went to in order to hide the Clinton corruption. I also address the real reason that the Democrats are putting Michael Cohen behind closed doors. Finally, I address a series of liberal lies about “Medicare for all.”
he former top attorney for President Trump said that he does not believe Special Counsel Robert Mueller will release a final report, and called the investigation into the Trump campaign and Russia a “terrible waste of time.”
Speaking to an ABC News podcast, John Dowd, who left the Trump legal team in March 2018 said, “I don’t think there’ll be a report. I will be shocked if anything regarding the president is made public, other than ‘We’re done.’”
“I ran big corruption cases,” he said. “I didn’t go around, picking scabs and just making any case I could make. If there was a petty case, I shifted it to someone else. I didn’t do it. And that’s where I disagree with Bob [Mueller].”
The Washington Times reports:
Mr. Dowd said the president has cooperated with the special counsel at an unprecedented level, even providing investigators with communications with the White House Counsel’s office
“There’s no time in history has anybody had this kind of look at communications with the president,” Mr. Dowd said.

uring a press conference today
, Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker said Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into the Trump campaign and Russia is nearing its end.
“The investigation is, I think, close to being completed and I hope that we can get the report from Mueller as soon as possible,” he said.
**LISTEN: Dan discusses the major problem Democrats have created for themselves in the shutdown fight**
Whitaker made the statement during a press conference today where the DOJ announced it was charging Chinese company Huawei and its CFO for stealing trade secrets.
Whitaker became Acting Attorney General in November and faced a barrage of criticism from liberals and Democrats who claimed he should recuse himself from the Mueller investigation because he had publicly criticized the probe in the past.
This is a breaking story. Please check back for updates…
In this episode I address the breaking news about the early morning raid of political operative Roger Stone’s house by the Mueller team. Mueller is clearly panicking at this point and I make the case that he is getting desperate by using these tactics. I also cover the increasingly troubling use of technology by governments to spy on citizens.
ormer New York City mayor and Trump attorney, Rudy Giuliani says the president may submit more answers to questions from Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Giuliani told Axios that the president’s attorneys were negotiating with Mueller’s team on whether or not they will submit more written answers.
The former New York City mayor said that after they provided the president’s written answers last month, the special counsel’s office asked, “Suppose we have a few things we want to go over?”
Giuliani said they came to an agreement with the Mueller team that after reviewing the president’s answers, prosecutors could “come back and show us what you need.”
As of right now, the special counsel’s office has “the right to submit more questions to us,” said Giuliani. “We have the right to say yes or no.”
“We might agree…or we might not,” he said.
After submitting the original answers in November, Giuliani told Axios that the Mueller questionnaire “looked like a law school exam … one big long group of questions, that were multi-part questions.”
The Trump attorney also said that some of the original Mueller questions created “more issues…legally than others.” He also said some questions were “unnecessary” and contained “possible traps.”
