She collaborated on the letter, demand justice comes from Feinstein staff and the Obama white house it's a reasonable hypothesis.

Senator Rand Paul
@RandPaul

🚨 The FBI Director just testified in the US Senate. I asked him if @realDonaldTrump phone conversations are getting collected in the FISA database. He wouldn't answer. Is NSA or FBI listening in on our President? We know bad actors exist within intel community. REFORM NEEDED NOW

Except in McCarthy case it turned out to be true:

Would she betray her friend by urging a reporter to start asking about a letter to Feinstein (while keeping coy about the contents)?

That assumes Dr. Fraud wasn't a willing participant. I think she was.

As far as Cotton's statement, why should we care if it's accurate? He credibly and sincerely accused the execrable Schumer of orchestrating the hit on Kavanaugh. Shouldn't that be all that matters?

Btw, here's Schumer's high school yearbook photo.

Repost from the last thread

Strange how the number of Ds causes so much consternation. It's a joke! Same as saying "Trump is playing chess while everyone else is playing checkers," and that phrase has been around probably for centuries.

Fully agree. I think some people just get upset over the term because I am the one using it. I use the term to describe Trump's grandmaster-level strategic planning/thinking and that is 100% in synch with what Iggy said in his 10:35. At no time have I ever claimed Trump's ability was supernatural in nature. That's just silly.

I don’t believe it takes this long to bring down these perps.
So Podesta goes free? Why isn’t the director of the FBI answering Rand Paul’s question?

Extraneus

Joking aside, I appreciate TM's continued research into McLean and the rest of the cabal, and I hope someone leaks the details on how and when Dr. Fraud's internet presence was scrubbed, etc. Let's hear from her family and other former boyfriends, too.

Was she a rabid pussy-hatter? Come on, you can say it. We know.

Regardless of who leaked it, ChiFi didn't tell the rest of the SJC about it as she should have if she thought it was plausible.

Grandmaster strategic planning?
Again way too much credit with little evidence to support it.

How does that factor in some grand plan?
Has Mueller hired any Repubs for his ridiculous nothingburger probe?

Do we know anymore than we did 2 years ago?

Dr. Fraud was a willing participant in the whole shitshow. And TM™ should know better.

I'm reasonably certain that Rosenstein kept Mueller focused in areas where DJT was in no jeopardy.

CH,

Is this another Jack Straw point? Doesn't that imply Rosenstein was protecting Trump from the outset?

That would also synch with the idea that Rosenstein appointed Mueller because he didn't trust McCabe/Strzok/Page to run the Russian collusion investigation.

Comanche Voter

Ah I don't know. Just like the NYT confused the photos of Susan Rice and Condoleeza Rice, all of those Democrat dirty workers look the same to me. Cotton may be on to something. They (the Democrats) were all wading through the pig sewage lagoon on this one, and some of sticks to all of them.

Beasts of England

'Grandmaster strategic planning? Again way too much credit with little evidence to support it.'

He mowed down the entire primary field, including the Bush Dynasty, and then did the same to Hillary in the general; which included the Clinton and Obama Dynasties. I'd say there's a ton of evidence to support the claim of grandmaster of strategic planner.

derwill

It seems to me that whatever went on before, Baker et al and Rosenstein are now openly on opposite sides. Either Baker lied about the wire wearing remark or he is telling the truth, but either way the point was to damage Rosenstein. Trump’s reaction tells me he is either pretending to believe RR’s denials for reasons of his own, or he’s got the man by the shirt hairs and is using him against the coup plotters.

I’m leaning toward the latter because of who else attended that meeting on the plane.

Threadkiller

I'm with Cotton because of the relationship Schumer, Feinstein, and McCain had.

I believe that Feinstein was counting on McCain getting his strength back enough to come back to DC, read the "confidential" letter and proclaim Kavanaugh unfit.

If you remember McCain's no vote on the O-care repeal, he mingled with the Dems and mainly with Schumer and Feinstein before the thumb down. When he croaked the Dem leadership made it clear how essential McCain was to their agenda. Schumer wants to name a Senate building after him for crying out loud.

I think Feinstein and Schumer struggled to find a powerful enough Republican dupe to do the McCain dirty work so they were forced into an 11th hour "leak."

matt - deplore me if you must

Every time I hear Bharara's name I think of the Jackson Five song Rockin Robin:

"Diddley Diddley Preet, Diddley Preet Preet Preet!"

And while the Dems were befouling themselves, perhaps irreparably, Trump was rolling like a Boss closing trade deals, awarding Congressional Medals of Honor, schooling the UN and going to their backyards and calling them out.

Bader Ginsburg is now chained to a rock forever with the waves crashing against her if she wants to remain on the Court. Some life. It shows to go how miserable leftists really are. They bathe in it.

Here's Jarretts article that Hannity mentioned last night.

Gregg Jarrett: Rod Rosenstein should immediately stop overseeing the Mueller 'collusion' investigation

I argued in a column two weeks ago that Rosenstein’s reported plot to overthrow the president was the equivalent of a coup attempt and should not go unpunished. Now there is even more incriminating evidence coming from Baker, McCabe, and Page that Rosenstein sought to overturn the decision of the American people to elect Donald Trump as our president.

Maryrose,

To Beast's strategic examples from the campaign, I would add opening up North Korea, the USMCA deal, working with the Saudis and Israel to tighten the screws on Iran, getting Kavanaugh confirmed, getting the tax cuts passed, and using these rallies to energize the base for the Midterms.

I think he is way smarter than a lot of people comprehend.

CH,

Is this another Jack Straw point? Doesn't that imply Rosenstein was protecting Trump from the outset?

He has pointed out that Mueller's areas of concentration are where DJT is squeaky clean and that Rosenstein supervises Mueller.

Tom R

I've seen a lot of pro-Trump pundits accuse Rosenstein of being an "institutionalist" for the DOJ. They are using the term as a pejorative.

For those of us patriotic Americans who are firm believers in the Constitution, the concept of "rule of law" is a core tenet of a Constitutional government. The DOJ is supposed to be the government institution that promotes that ideal.

Since the evidence so far indicates the DOJ/FBI under Obama was criminally corrupt, reforming the DOJ and restoring the concept of "rule of law" is mandatory for ultimate success of Trump's MAGA agenda.

In order to reform the DOJ and regain the trust of the American public, isn't it a good idea to have as many "institutionalists" who revere the concept of "rule of law" working in the DOJ as possible?

I still say that this was a plot to destroy Trump and his family and business after Hillary was elected. Remember, they thought it was a sure thing.

Had she been elected, e us never have known the source of the dossier, how politically motivated higher ups we, the leaks of fake stories to the press, none of it.

We. Would have gotten grim statements from Comey at a press conference and arrests of DJT, his sons, and Jared and Ivanka. Then show trials.

Why? Revenge by Obama for the birth certificate question and destruction of Trump ("so that his kind shall not rise again") as a Lesson to Us All.

They had this plan in operation and we're gobsmacked when Trump won. Everything since then has been an attempt to provide a plausible reason for their spying, which was really not spying but planting false evidence. They aren't vey good at it, either.

If you have links to those posts I would appreciate it. That supports the idea that Mueller is working with Trump, not against him.

It's not his site so anything I've quoted has been a comment just like you and I make here. I've flat out asked him before if he thinks Mueller is on team MAGA and he said no. I hate to put words in his mouth but I think he considers Mueller a manageable distraction with Rosenstein doing the managing.

You should probably interact with him directly in the comments at AoS to find out what he really thinks. He argues things in a different manner than you and RG do.

'The mob doesn't like the word Trump used to describe them.'

I'd call it the work of a stable and strategic genius. He goes on offense with branding. They're the mob, now - and he won't let them escape the term.

Miss Marple

TK,

I think it was an Obama-Hillary plot.

I think she got him to go along with it because of the birth certificate and she needed his ok because she was out of government.

She, however, saw him as a danger even if she defeated him, because h wasn't afraid to speak up and he had lots of money and celebrity. Taking him out would keep others from speaking up.

I can't believe that Rod Rosenstein would even consider the use of the 25th Amendment to remove Trump. It's laughable. If he seriously brought this up, he is a lot bigger idiot than anyone has suggested. Did he think that just because some people in the White House were shaking their heads and saying that Trump is crazy, that he could get enough to agree to remove him from office?

Captain Hate

The current mania about the "Antifa traffic cops" is kind of absurd -- not because it didn't happen, but because MUCH MORSE STUFF HAPPENS AT EVERY SINGLE ANTIFA RALLY and no one ever seemed to get worked up over it before.

The only reason people are talking about it is that there's video of the incident (fairly trivial incident, compared to all the others) and for some mysterious reason the video "went viral."

But for years and years and years, at basically every Antifa riot ever staged, they have done much much much worse. I've witnessed it with my own eyes, too. I was once even in a car that was surrounded by Antifa, who rocked it back and forth trying to tip it over.

In countless Oakland Antifa actions over the years, they have jumped on cars (while they were occupied by drivers), smashed windshields, looted contents, dragged drivers out of cars and beat them up, flipped the cars over, and even set them on fire. Screaming at drivers and banging on hoods and "directing traffic" and threatening drivers is absolutely commonplace and is the LEAST of their offenses.

In Berkeley a few years back they even smashed up several POLICE cars.

I mean, it's fine in general that this Portland incident is getting publicity, but sheesh, it's just the tip of the iceberg. It's like everyone is flipping out because there's a video of a Munich Brownshirt being rude to a Jew.

I turned on the Rush Limbaugh program just in time to hear that Hillary Clinton had chosen to speak out on recent events concerning the appointment of Justice Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. As usual she misrepresented everything and urged those who can bother to listen to her to reach for even greater heights (or lows) of resistance, violence, in your face mayhem, etc. because President Trump and all those who support him are bad, bad, bad!

Was there ever in history such an insignificant, sour, incompetent, dumb as a board, downright wrong-headed (not to mention hideous in spirit) fool to cross the political landscape!?!

Not only is her time over, it never was her 'time'. To Hillary, wherever you're roosting these days, write your memoirs, take up fishing or knitting, or make voodoo dolls.

1) More than anything else, Clinton's comments on "civility" show an utter lack of self-awareness, and/or critical thinking. Every political movement in history has believed its opponents want to destroy what it "stands for" or "believes in."
