Newly Released Emails Confirm FBI Tried To Work Deal With State Dept To Minimize Hillary Email Scandal

Published

on

The insanity never seems to end and once again the great Judicial Watch is doing Congress’ oversight job! It’s time arrests start happening.

Newly released FBI emails obtained via a Freedom of Information Act request confirm that James Comey’s FBI attempted to work out a quid pro quo deal with the Obama State Department to help cover up the Hillary Clinton private email server scandal just weeks before the 2016 election.

Back in October 15, 2016, Fox News first reported on the deal but full confirmation did not come until this week when the government watchdog group Judicial Watch released FBI communication related to the deal.

“FBI interview summaries and notes, provided late Friday to the House Government Oversight and Intelligence Committees, contain allegations of a ‘quid pro quo’ between a senior State Department executive and FBI agents during the Hillary Clinton email investigation, two congressional sources told Fox News,” Herridge and Browne reported in 2016. “This is a flashing red light of potential criminality,” Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz (Utah) told Fox News at the time. “In return for altering the classification, the possibility of additional slots for the FBI at missions overseas was discussed,” he said.

Fox News reported on Monday that over two years later, the allegation that the FBI and State Department floated a “quid pro quo” deal has now been confirmed, and it originated with the FBI:

The trove of documents turned over by the FBI, in response to a lawsuit by the transparency group Judicial Watch, also included discussions by former FBI lawyer Lisa Page concerning a potential quid pro quo between the State Department and the FBI — in which the FBI would agree to effectively hide the fact that a Clinton email was classified in exchange for more legal attache positions that would benefit the FBI abroad, and allow them to send more agents to countries where the FBI’s access is ordinarily restricted.

The quid pro quo would have involved the FBI providing some other public reason for withholding the Clinton email from disclosure amid a Freedom of Information Act request, besides its classification level. There are no indications the proposed arrangement ever took place.

And, in the face of mounting criticism aimed at the FBI, the documents revealed that Comey quoted the 19th century poet Ralph Waldo Emerson by assuring his subordinates, “To be great is to be misunderstood.”

The FBI did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment on the released emails.

Ocasio’s ‘Squad’ Implodes At Press Conference On Trump Tweets

Published

on

The “Squad” held a press conference to bash President Trump on Monday concerning tweets that he put out that they are now claiming are racist. None of that is true by the way… what is true is that these are socialists and communists and they hate America… all of which Trump correctly pointed out. The four Marxist radicals literally melted down in front of reporters while making multiple false statements and refusing to answer specific questions from reporters.

Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) hosted the press conference to address recent attacks by Trump, who has highlighted their behavior and said they are anti-American. The truth hurts and there is no arguing with that premise… Trump is right on all of it.

Omar was the worst of the lot during the conference. She told one lie after another. For instance, she said, “This is a president who has called black athletes ‘sons of b*****s.’ This is a president who has called people who come from black and brown countries ‘sh–holes.’ This is a president who has equated neo-Nazis with those who protest them.”

All of that is untrue and is targeted propaganda from the left. Trump referred to athletes who kneel during the National Anthem as “sons-of-b*****s,” not black athletes. Context is everything here and words matter. Trump referred to certain countries as “sh-tholes,” not black and brown people. Trump did not equate neo-Nazis with those who protest them, he specifically condemned them.

From The Daily Wire:

“Omar went on to claim that Trump was accused of criminally colluding with Russia to undermine the U.S. election, despite the fact that Special Counsel Robert Mueller stated in his report on his Russia investigation that the Trump campaign did not conspire with Russia.

“Omar also spread conspiracy theories, claiming without evidence that Trump was trying to promote “an agenda to allow millions of Americans to die from a lack of health care.”

“Omar also refused to deny that she was a communist and that she is pro-al-Qaeda, a question that emerged after footage of her emerged from 2013 where she laughed when talking about ISIS and al-Qaeda.

“Omar defended her past anti-Semitic remarks when pressed by a reporter on if her past comments gave legitimacy toTrump’s criticisms against her. Omar said that everything she says comes “from a place of extreme love for every single person in this country.”

“Pressley also made remarks that stirred controversy, as she refused to refer to Trump as the president, saying, “I will always refer to him as the occupant.”

“Ocasio-Cortez tried to claim that Trump was attacking them because he is not competent enough to defend his policies.

“Weak minds and leaders challenge loyalty to our country in order to avoid challenging and debating the policy,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “This president does not know how to make the argument that Americans do not deserve health care. He does not know how to defend his policies, so what he does is attack us personally.”

“Trump’s attacks come as a new Democrat internal poll revealed that Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, and their socialist agenda are extremely unpopular in swing states, with voters only approving at 22%, 9%, and 18% respectively.

“In reaction to the poll, a top Democrat involved in the 2020 congressional races told Axios: “If all voters hear about is AOC, it could put the [House] majority at risk. [S]he’s getting all the news and defining everyone else’s races. Socialism is toxic to these voters.”‘

One thing became glaringly apparent during the press conference – this “Squad” hates America and everything she stands for just as President Trump pointed out. They imploded during the press conference and gave a tremendous gift to Trump. He can now bludgeon the left with the truth about their Marxist underpinnings. He has successfully moved the Overton Window once again.

Trump has successfully linked Pelosi and the rest of the Democrats to the uber radical “Squad” and their disastrous socialism. It’s actually quite brilliant and I am impressed. They don’t even realize that they are in fact a “Suicide Squad.”

“This fight w/ the squad is exactly where Trump wants 2020 fought,” tweeted Amy Walter, a political analyst for the Cook Political Report, a campaign handicapping tip sheet, on Tuesday. “The more media/Dems engage him, the better for him. All this fight does is re-polarize the partisans and leaves the up-for-grabs voters (who want to hear about bread-butter issues) tuned out.”

Even CNN and others that lean left are now saying that the “Squad” is actively helping Trump earn a second term. “The Dems were trying to distance themselves from the four ‘progressives,’ but now they are forced to embrace them,” tweeted Trump on Monday night. “That means they are endorsing Socialism, hate of Israel and the USA! Not good for the Democrats!” And that is a winning platform for the 2020 presidential race for Trump.

WATCH: Ilhan Omar Laughs When Reporter Asks Her To Condemn Antifa Violence

Published

on

Doing the actual reporting the MSM won’t do. Keean Bexte from Rebel Media cornered the radical members of the Squad and asked them if they would condemn an attempted terror attack by a self-identified far-left Antifa member against an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility in Tacoma, Washington on Saturday. Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) refused to do so. Instead, they seemed to find it very amusing.

Omar actually laughed when she was asked about the far-left violence. “Will you condemn Antifa?” Bexte asked Ocasio-Cortez and Omar. “Do you feel like you have any sort of responsibility for their actions?” Both remained silent in their solidarity with a communist Antifa terrorist and his violent actions. Bexte doubled down and it was epic: “It’s just like your brother — when you ignore the questions about you marrying your brother, you couldn’t answer it,” he said. “Do you feel responsible for the violent attack abasing the ICE facility?” Crickets.

“It’s easy to condemn terrorism, will you condemn it?” he said. “Antifa firebombed a facility in Tacoma over the weekend – it’s an ICE facility. Will you condemn them for that? I mean, firebombing a concentration camp is kind of a laudable thing, if it actually is a concentration camp. You must be happy that they did it, no? Are you pleased? Should more people do it? It’s easy to say no. It’s really easy to say no.”

From The Daily Wire:

“As reported by The Daily Wire last month, questions surrounding Omar’s apparent marriage to her alleged brother resurfaced when newly-discovered documents suggested the representative lived with her current husband, Ahmed Abdisalan Hirsi, while being legally married to Omar’s alleged brother, Ahmed Nur Said Elmi.

“It kinda blew up in your face when you didn’t respond about your brother — it made it look like you married him,” Bexte said. “You could finish that question now, if you have an answer. Did you marry your brother?”

“Omar, stone-faced, again refused to answer.

“Do you feel like you bear any responsibility for what happened?” the reporter continued. “Ms. Cortez, do you feel responsible at all?”

“Directing his attention to both representatives, Bexte against asked: “Will you tell Americans not to be violent anymore?”

“This is when Rep. Omar, holding her Starbucks drink, is seen and heard laughing on video.

“As noted by The Daily Wire’s Ryan Saavedra on Monday, the man who attacked the ICE facility over the weekend reportedly “used the same ‘concentration camp’ rhetoric” popularized by Ms. Ocasio-Cortez in his manifesto.

“The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border and that is exactly what they are,” Ocasio-Cortez said in June. “They are concentration camps. And, um, if that doesn’t bother you, I don’t, I don’t know, I like, we can have, okay whatever.” The open socialist then mentioned the phrase, “Never Again,” a reference to the Holocaust.”

Willem Van Spronsen, 69, was shot and killed by police outside Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, Washington, on Saturday after he hurled Molotov cocktails at the building and cars. He also had a rifle – he was armed. One of Spronsen’s friends described him as an “anarchist” and “anti-fascist,” according to the Seattle Times.

Van Spronsen was a violent member of Antifa that had attacked police at that facility previously. He was also a member of the Puget Sound chapter of the John Brown Gun Club, a militant communist organization promoted by CNN. The John Brown Gun Club was promoted by CNN as recently as April where a commentator claimed the organization was “white, liberal, progressive people, inclusive, friendly to the world.” A man appearing to be Van Spronsen can be seen four seconds into a promotional clip released by CNN for their segment.

On Twitter, Bexte wrote: “After repeatedly asking @Ilhan and @AOC if they would condemn the Antifa firebomber, and if they felt partly responsible, the two got into their SUV and Omar (likely thinking she was off camera) burst into ear to ear laughter.” He added, “Was there ever a doubt Omar hated America?” Nope, none at all.

Over the weekend, President Trump suggested Omar and her comrades should consider leaving the United States if they hate the country, and he was roundly accused of racism as a result. Omar, who previously referred to those who perpetrated the horrific terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, as “some people” who “did something,” has a long track record of appearing to loathe the United States.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) backed the president on Monday morning, calling the so-called Squad a “bunch of communists” who are “anti-Semitic” and hate the United States. Which is what Trump called them as well and it is exactly what they are. Trump doesn’t silently support violent revolutionaries and terrorists and he has the stones to come out and say what he means and then stand by it. Not blow people off and laugh over supporting terrorists.
