HUGE: Former Top Spy Admits Obama Ordered Investigation of Trump Campaign

  James Clapper, who was Director of National Intelligence (DNI) in the Obama administrations, was on CNN yesterday and was asked, “Are you concerned that Barr or Durham’s investigation will find wrongdoing and seek to punish former intelligence officials like you?” The message I’m getting from all this is, apparently what we were supposed to […]

NY Times Prints Fawning Profile of MSNBC Host Rachel Maddow

  For two years, Rachel Maddow’s show was about one thing: “Russia! Russia! Russia!” She hyped Robert Mueller’s investigation as the silver bullet that would slay the Trump werewolf, and when Mueller failed, Maddow’s ratings slumped and have never recovered. Well, she’s got out a new book — Blowout: Corrupted Democracy, Rogue State Russia, and […]

CNN Story ‘Simply False,’ CIA Says

  Never trust CNN: The Central Intelligence Agency on Monday evening slammed what it called CNN’s “misguided” and “simply false” reporting, after the cable channel’s chief national security correspondent authored a hole-filled piece claiming that the CIA had pulled a high-level spy out of Russia because President Trump had “repeatedly mishandled classified intelligence and could […]

‘A Painful Gut Punch’ for MSNBC

  For 675 days of the Mueller investigation, Rachel Maddow enjoyed her best-ever ratings, promising her audience of angry Democrats that the special counsel would soon rid America of the unwelcome presidency of Donald J. Trump. For MSNBC viewers, the result was a catastrophe: Last Friday, Robert Mueller turned over the results of his titanic […]

‘Russia! Russia! Russia!’

  Tucker Carlson makes an important point about the Mueller probe: So let’s recall, for the record, what the Robert Mueller investigation is about, why we got a special counsel in the first place. The point wasn’t to discover whether the president fudged deductions on his tax returns thirty years ago. It wasn’t to find […]

Roger Stone Indictment: Not ‘Collusion’

  As Professor Glenn Reynolds remarks, the latest indictment from the Mueller investigation is about process crimes, not “Russian collusion.” Everyone is commenting about how the televised pre-dawn raid — reminiscent of the Branch Davidians at Waco — on the Florida home of 66-year-old Roger Stone was so over-the-top as to suggest Mueller was seeking […]
