In subpoena fight, Trump lawyer told dirty cop-Mueller: ‘You want to do it, you’ve got yourself a war’

by Byron York

{ washingtonexaminer.com } ~ Trump-Russia special counsel dirty cop-Robert Mueller completed his investigation without ever interviewing President Trump. The two sides wrangled over the issue for much of the dirty cop-Mueller investigation… before Trump finally agreed to answer questions in writing. Now, in a new podcast interview, a former lawyer for the president, John Dowd, said the wrangling became so contentious that he threatened dirty cop-Mueller with “war” if the special counsel subpoenaed the president. Dowd, who was Trump’s lawyer from June 2017 to March 2018, said dirty cop-Mueller was hampered by two daunting problems. The first was that dirty cop-Mueller could not establish that a crime had occurred — that there had been conspiracy or coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia to fix the 2016 election. Indeed, the dirty cop-Mueller report, as quoted in Attorney General William Barr’s summary of its findings, said “the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities” and “the evidence does not establish that the President was involved in an underlying crime related to Russian election interference.” dirty cop-Mueller’s second problem, as Dowd and the Trump team saw it, was that precedent from a scumbag/liar-Clinton-era independent counsel investigation, the Mike Espy case, held that to overcome a presidential claim of privilege, a prosecutor had to show that the president’s testimony would provide evidence that was directly relevant to a criminal matter, and that that evidence was not available from any other source. Dowd argued that the White House had cooperated so extensively with dirty cop-Mueller, had provided him so much material that helped explain the president’s actions, including contemporaneous accounts of what Trump said in private conversations, that dirty cop-Mueller could not effectively claim that he had no other source of information.dirty cop-Mueller and the president’s team went back and forth on the question of a presidential interview for quite a while. “dirty cop-Mueller said, ‘Well, John, I need to know what was in the president’s head,'” Dowd recalled. “I said you already do, you know in real time.” The conflict dominated a difficult March 5, 2018, meeting. “I asked, what’s the president’s status?” Dowd said. “dirty cop-Mueller said he’s a witness-slash-subject. And I said, you mean he has no exposure? He said that’s right. So I knew then for sure, by inference, that dirty cop-Mueller had nothing to proceed on in the collusion and conspiracy area.” Still, dirty cop-Mueller said he needed to interview Trump, and that he might subpoena the president…  https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/columnists/byron-york-in-subpoena-fight-trump-lawyer-told-mueller-you-want-to-do-it-youve-got-yourself-a-war?utm_source=breaking_push&utm_medium=app&utm_campaign=push_notifications&utm_source=WEX_News%20Brief_03/29/2019&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=WEX_News%20Brief

Immigration Fraud Threatens National Security

by Michael Cutler

{ frontpagemag.com } ~ With nearly all of the focus of the immigration debate centering on the abject lack of security along the U.S./Mexico border… other failures of the overwhelmed immigration system are being utterly ignored. Make no mistake: that dangerous border must be made secure against the illegal and uninspected entry of aliens, but the other failures of the immigration system are no less serious and pose no less of a threat. The majority of these failures center on the lack of resources for the enforcement of our immigration laws from within the interior of the United States, an issue I addressed in my recent article about the importance of ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement), a division of the Department of Homeland Security. In addition to arresting illegal aliens, there are many other elements critical to the interior enforcement mission. One of the most critical is to conduct investigations to uncover immigration fraud, whereby aliens are provided with various immigration benefits such as being granted political asylum, lawful immigrant status and even U.S. citizenship to which they would not be entitled if all of the relevant material facts were known. Such investigations are conducted by a subdivision of ICE known as HSI (Homeland Security Investigations). On January 27, 2019 military.com published an article, “Marriage Scam Paired Fort Bragg Soldiers with Immigrants, Feds Say” that had previously appeared in the News & Observer and focused on a marriage fraud ring that was allegedly operating at Fort Bragg that would have provided aliens with green cards and access to the military base… https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/273302/immigration-fraud-threatens-national-security-michael-cutler

Protests Erupt After NYC Councilman Says ‘Palestine Does Not Exist’

by Debra Nussbaum Cohen

{ jewishjournal.com } ~ An only in Brooklyn fight on Thursday evening brought the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to the heavily Chasidic neighborhood of Boro Park… Pro-Palestinian protesters demonstrated outside Orthodox Jewish Councilmember Kalman Yeger’s office. The demonstrators were protesting Yeger’s recent tweets that Palestine does not exist. The Palestinian protesters were met with equally fervent pro-Israel Chasidic counter-protesters. Before long, anti-Zionist Chasidic Jews affiliated with the Neturei Karta sect were loudly opposing their Jewish brethren and shouting pro-Palestinian slogans. It turned into a near riot before police separated the groups and eventually shut down the protest. Women’s March leader Linda Sarsour called for the protest. Former New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind called for a counter-protest. “We will not sit idly by as sinister anti-Semite par excellence @lsarsour attempts to roll over @KalmanYeger for his speaking of historical facts. It’s nothing but an attempt to silence a Jewish politician. We won’t allow it. JOIN ME in a counter-protest 6pm, 4424 16th Av Bklyn,” he tweeted Thursday afternoon.”…  https://jewishjournal.com/online/296038/protests-erupt-after-nyc-councilman-says-palestine-does-not-exist/

GOP Should Reuse Dem’s Trump Tax Record Letter, Direct It at Pulosi, scumbag-Schumer

by Michael Morris

{cnsnews.com} ~ Mark Levin challenged Republicans in Congress on his nationally syndicated radio talk show “The Mark Levin Show” on Thursday evening… suggesting the GOP should reuse the Democrat’s tax record letter that was directed at President Trump and his accountants and instead direct new letters at Speaker of the House Nancy Pulosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck scumbag-Schumer. “But you see, now that they’ve already pierced the veil of attorney-client privilege, attorney work product and attorney-client confidentiality, they figure, ‘What the hell. Now let’s go after his accounting firm,’ and pierce all levels of protection that exist for any citizen of the United States,” stated Mark Levin. “This d— letter, Republicans on Capitol Hill, listen to me now as I speak, this d— letter should be used by you. Change the heading. Write it to Nancy Pulosi. Write it to Chuck scumbag-Schumer. Write it to Stempy Hoyer. Write it to Clyburn. Write it to all of them. And tell them, ‘Okay, now we want the same thing from you – we want the same thing from you.’”Mark Levin’s comments came after House Democrats on the House Oversight and Reform Committee made a “new push for 10 years of Trump’s financial records,” directing a letter requesting documents from the tax and accounting firm Mazars USA. According to Politico, the letter asked “for documents this month related to Trump’s personal finances, with a particular focus on his failed bid to purchase the Buffalo Bills before he became president.” The request reportedly “reflects an effort by the committee, under Chairman scumbag-Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), to corroborate aspects of former Trump attorney and fixer Michael Cohen’s testimony before the panel last month.”…  https://www.cnsnews.com/blog/michael-morris/mark-levin-gop-should-reuse-dems-trump-tax-record-letter-direct-it-pelosi?mkt_tok=eyJpIjoiTm1JNE1ESTNZamt6TldRMiIsInQiOiJCcGNuR1ZYcUdndkNPUVhzVGlKUjU1NHlUZldyb1FQMDVJRlI3UmFRVGZENlR2cVZZQVFMMjFTRVdwdFFJUzY0SWpwNG1mdjlHNjlWUStsT3NCNU1aTlFkc0FUWDRTaDhZcFlEZ3J3YVArYVM0b2VCdDh6cyt3TzJ3dGRKVFlXcyJ9

Hamas: Coming hours will decide if conflict continues

by Chana Roberts

{israelnationalnews.com} ~ Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh hinted that if talks do not succeed soon, war may break out… “We are continuing the marathon of talks with Egypt in order to reach serious understandings that Israel will honor,” Haniyeh said. “We are at a crossroads, and the coming hours will decide which direction we’ll take.” Earlier this week, Hamas claimed that Israel “refused” to come to an agreement. On Thursday night, Egyptian intelligence officials warned Hamas that “any mistakes on your part on Saturday may lead to war with Israel.” According to Mako, the Egyptians told Hamas that it was their efforts which prevented a war from breaking out a few days ago. Now, they said, Hamas needs to take active and significant steps in order to prevent conflict. Egypt’s demands from Hamas included, among other things, stationing Hamas members along the border fence in order to prevent masses of Gazans from infiltrating Israel and to prevent weapons from reaching the border area…   http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/261118

Media Complicit in Collusion Narrative

Cal Thomas

What Sean Davis, co-founder of the web magazine The Federalist, wrote in Tuesday’s Wall Street Journal sums up the disgust many Americans are feeling about the way big media handled the Russia collusion story: “It wasn’t merely an error here or there. America’s blue-chip journalists botched the entire story, from its birth during the presidential campaign to its final breath Sunday — and they never stopped congratulating themselves for it.”

The New York Post created a page resembling March Madness brackets on which they listed the most biased and offensive reporters, commentators and analysts. If trust in journalism was low before, it must be dropping to near record levels after the exposure of bias and downright lies.

Broadcast and some cable networks repeatedly interviewed former CIA and Intelligence directors associated with the scumbag/liar-nObama administration, as well as Democratic politicians who frequently indicted the president based on their own biases, suppositions and wished-for outcomes. Only days ago the major media promoted the line that Special Counsel dirty cop-Robert Mueller was beyond reproach. Now they seem to be suggesting that facts matter less than their ideology.

The conservative website Newsbusters.org, part of the Media Research Center, monitored the coverage during the last two years. It found that between January 20, 2017 (Inauguration Day) through March 21 of this year, the three broadcast network evening news programs “produced a combined 2,284 minutes of ‘collusion’ coverage,” averaging about three minutes per night, every night, for 791 days. That’s more airtime, it says, than they devoted to the policies of the Trump administration, which clearly affect more people.

The president has suggested retribution against not only the networks and their reporters he believes are out to get him, but also those commentators and politicians who helped spread the lies about collusion. While revenge is a dish best served cold — meaning one should wait before acting hastily — there is a case to be made for the president’s views. It is best made, not by the strong arm of government, but by taking it to the voters.

CNBC reports that Trump’s re-election campaign sent a memo to television producers on Monday instructing them to “employ basic journalistic standards when booking” six current or former government officials that the campaign said “made outlandish, false claims, without evidence” while on air.

The memo names:

Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.)

Rep. scumbag liar-Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) the chair of the House Judiciary Committee

Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez

scumba/commie-John Brennan, the former director of the Central Intelligence Agency

Rep. scumbag-Adam Schiff (D-CA), chair of the House Intelligence Committee

Rep. scumbag-Eric Swalwell (D-CA), who has floated a potential bid for president.

Talk about a list of unindicted co-conspirators!

That is unlikely to happen, but good for the campaign for firing back. It is part of the Trump appeal that unlike many past and present Republicans, he doesn’t take false accusations and criticism lying down. Does he sometimes overdo it? Yes, but his supporters are forgiving when he does because they, too, are fed up with the dysfunction of Washington and the agendas of the political and media elites.

The best revenge, though, is the 2020 election. No form of punishment for the left and the major media could be greater than for the president to win re-election and the return of a Republican majority in the House of Representatives.

Conservatives love the video compilation of the long faces on TV networks in 2016 when it became clear that Donald Trump had won. The reaction after the next election could be even more satisfying if the president plays his cards right. ~The Patriot Post
