National Enquirer’s surprise deal could imperil Trump

The National Enquirer’s parent company has agreed to tell prosecutors everything it knows about Donald Trump — and it might know a lot.

In a court document released Wednesday, the tabloid publisher, American Media Inc., admitted to coordinating a hush-money payment with Trump’s 2016 campaign, reversing two years of denials. The confession came as part of an immunity agreement with the U.S. attorney’s office in New York, made public shortly after Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, was sentenced to three years in prison over charges of tax fraud, campaign finance violations and lying to Congress.

But the disclosure might just be scratching the surface.>>>

Federal prosecutors probing Trump inauguration spending: report

Wall Street Journal reports prosecutors ar looking into whether some donors gave money in exchange for favours.

Federal prosecutors in New York are investigating whether US President Donald Trump's inaugural committee misspent some of the record $107m it raised from donors, the Wall Street Journal has reported, citing people it said were familiar with the matter.

The early-stage investigation by the Manhattan US attorney's office is examining whether some of the committee's donors gave money in exchange for policy concessions, influencing administration positions or access to the incoming administration, the Journal said on Thursday.

A spokesperson for the Manhattan US attorney's office declined to comment.

Asked about the report, Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani told Reuters news agency the president was not involved in his inaugural committee.>>>

Senator buys (and drops) thousands in defense stock after pushing Trump for bigger military budget

Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma purchased between $50,000 and $100,000 of Raytheon stock last Tuesday – just days after news broke that US President Donald Trump had decided to back plans to request $750 billion from Congress for defense spending for the fiscal year 2020.

It seems that Inhofe was personally involved in the decision to hike the defense budget, too. When Trump suggested last week that he wanted to downsize parts of the US defense budget, Inhofe met with him and Defense Secretary James Mattis – a meeting which seems to have successfully convinced Trump to back increases in defense spending rather than cutbacks.

HUGE! Clinton Foundation Witnesses Say Huber Team LOST THEIR Evidence — Had to Send It THREE TIMES — Only Interested Cuz of Today’s Hearing

Mark Meadows (R-NC), the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Government Operations, led the hearing today. Two Clinton Foundation whistleblowers spoke at the hearing today. And Tom Fitton from Judicial Watch also testified.

THE U.S. GOVERNMENT HAS YET TO SUPPLY AMERICANS WITH THE TRUTH ON….

…..the reason we have a central bank (Federal Reserve), the reason we entered WW II, the reason for entering the Viet Nam War, the Kennedy assassination, the Martin Luther King assassination, how unknown Governors like Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton got elected President, the Alfred Murrah Building bombing in Oklahoma City, World Trade Center bombings I & II, the place where the trillions of dollars went after the 2007/8 meltdown, how a little known and highly inexperienced black man became President, etc., etc.

The bought and paid for corporate lamestream fake news media shills, liars and traitors will tell you that it’s all old news, and it’s all been resolved, and people who hang on to a desire to know more facts and truth of the matters are just loose cannon conspiracy theorists.

Nancy Pelosi Announces Democrat Plan to Go After Trump’s Tax Returns

During her weekly press conference, Nancy Pelosi announced a plan for congressional Democrats to target President Trump’s tax returns.

Democrats are set to take power in January, taking over the House of Representatives and, essentially, grinding all congressional work to a halt. There are rumors floating around Capitol Hill that Democrats will immediately push for impeaching the President with what little power they hold in the House.

U.S. Attorney for Utah John Huber won’t testify before House panel on Clinton probe

U.S. Attorney for Utah John Huber won't testify Thursday before the House Oversight subcommittee as its chairman had announced previously.

Huber had been assigned by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions to investigate several controversies Republicans have raised about Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation, many of them stoked by right-wing activists who believe she should be prosecuted.

Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., chairman of the Oversight’s subcommittee on government operations, had hoped Huber would provide an update on his probe.

“Mr. Huber with the Department of Justice and FBI has been having an investigation — at least part of his task was to look at the Clinton Foundation and what may or may not have happened as it relates to improper activity with that charitable foundation, so we’ve set a hearing date for December the 5th,” he told Hill.TV previously.

That hearing was postponed until Thursday because of President George H.W. Bush's funeral service.

Bombshell, Indictment Are Coming For The Clintons

Fox News host Sean Hannity said the hammer is about to hit the Clintons and their cronies.

The host told his guests Sarah Carter, John Solomon and Gregg Jarrett that he had it on good authority that indictments were about to be issued.

“It will be fascinating. Let me go to Gregg Jarrett. I know all of us know William Campbell. That’s going to be a big issue only because that, too, is connected to the Clinton Foundation and the $145 million back to the Clinton Foundation,” he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wish it were true. But of my theory of what lies behind the Hillary Clinton email server (espionage) and if enough politicians were dipping into that Clinton Foundation, then nothing will happen.

It's My Gavel Now: Pelosi Strikes Deal With Insurgent Wing That Ensures Her The House Speakership

Well, if Democratic bloodsports over the House speakership race was on your Christmas list, cross it off. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) now has a lock on it, with a deal struck with the anti-Pelosi wing on the Democratic Party, who vowed to oppose her bid. Some 16 House Democratsdeclared their opposition to her candidacy. Yet, their potential candidate to oppose Pelosi, Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-OH), decided to bow out. Some other anti-Pelosi Democrats jumped ship as well. Still, there was a chance that this small band of rebels could cause Pelosi heartburn on the House floor. Now, such fears can be put to rest. Pelosi plans to step aside after…four years

No she doesn't.

MEET THE BOARD OF THE FUSION GPS-LINKED GROUP INVESTIGATING TRUMP

Days after Donald Trump’s inauguration, a nonprofit organization opened up shop in Washington, D.C., to continue a private investigation into the president’s possible ties to Russia.

Only a few details of the group, the Democracy Integrity Project, have trickled out over the nearly two years since its founding.

The organization’s founder, a former Senate Intelligence Committee staffer named Daniel J. Jones, hired opposition research firm Fusion GPS and dossier author Christopher Steele as part of the initiative, he told the FBI in March 2017. And it has been revealed that billionaire financier George Soros has given at least $1 million to the group and is considering giving more.

Congress Is Trying to Use the Spending Bill to Criminalize Boycotts of Israel and Other Countries

According to recent reports, congressional leaders from both sides of the aisle are planning to sneak a bill criminalizing politically motivated boycotts of Israel into the end-of-the-year omnibus spending bill.

The bill’s original sponsor, Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.), is pushing Democratic leadership to include this bill, which has not moved forward thus far primarily because it violates the First Amendment. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) are reportedly leaning toward slipping the text into the spending bill, which needs to pass for the government to stay open.

It’s ridiculous that it’s unconstitutional for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to run for president

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the biggest star in the Democratic Party, and she has been ever since she unseated Rep. Joe Crowley in a surprise primary upset in May. That her win didn’t, in the final analysis, launch a wave of leftist primary victories only goes to show what a phenomenon she personally is.

Not everyone shares her brand of politics, of course, but her constituency has exploded beyond the initial set of ideologues who powered the challenge to Crowley because of her incredible wit, charisma, social media savvy, and basic political smarts.

Oh oh!

Prior to his interview with David Rubin, a former Israeli mayor, Carlson went after Democrats Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi for labeling Trump’s plan to build a wall along the country’s southern border as “immoral.”

Cohen Sentenced To Three Years In Prison

Longtime Trump Attorney & Fixer Michael Cohen Sentenced To Three Years In Prison
***
In his remarks, Judge William Pauley III reportedly spoke of the "smorgasbord" of crimes committed by the former Trump loyalist. "Each of these crimes standing alone warrant considerable punishment," the judge said.

The sentencing followed a slew of guilty pleas made in separate cases involving federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York and by special counsel Robert Mueller. Most notably, Cohen admitted last month to arranging hush payments at Trump's direction “for the principal purpose of influencing the election.”

In their sentencing recommendation, prosecutors argued that Cohen deserved a "substantial" prison term of several years, because he had “repeatedly used his power and influence for deceptive ends."

"His offenses strike at several pillars of our society and system of government: the payment of taxes; transparent and fair elections; and truthfulness before government and in business"

Michael Cohen, says Trump made him 'cover up his dirty deeds'

Disgrace: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Attacks Gold Star Father John Kelly as a Coward

Woke 29-year-old Congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went after White House Chief of Staff John Kelly yesterday. Why? She wants him to apologize to Democrat Rep. Frederica Wilson for supposedly "lying" about her to reporters.

John Kelly was straight up exposed for lying about @RepWilson in comments aimed at discrediting her.

He absolutely owes her an apology, and his refusal to do so isn’t a sign of strength - it’s cowardice.

"Cowardice." Quite a big word to use against a four-star Marine Corps general whose son was killed in Afghanistan.

Philadelphia’s Perverse Civil Asset Forfeiture Machine Has Finally Come to An End

By Brittany Hunter

Philadelphia may be the birthplace of our Constitution, but its civil asset forfeiture program is anything but constitutional. The program has become so corrupt and far-reaching it is often referred to as a “perverse machine.” Luckily, after a four-year legal battle brought by the nonprofit law firm the Institute for Justice (IJ), the city has agreed to a settlement that will give its abusive forfeiture program a major overhaul and protect the rights of Philadelphia property owners...

FBI Pressured Michael Flynn to Not Have Lawyer Present During Interview

Newly filed court documents allege that FBI officials coerced Michael Flynn into forgoing a lawyer during the interview that would lead to a guilty plea on one count of making false statements.

Flynn, who was President Trump’s National Security Adviser at the time, and his lawyers argue that the FBI went well out of their way to create a perjury trap.

Worse, the filing alleges that FBI officials and other agents who interviewed Flynn failed to warn him of any consequences should he make a false statement during the interview. They wanted Flynn to be “relaxed” during the session.

According to statements contained in a so-called “302” witness interview report cited by the filing, McCabe and other FBI officials discussed that they “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.”
