From the prior thread:

In a news release, House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said he advised the Department of the Interior in writing that "any official at the Department who 'prohibits or prevents' or 'attempts or threatens to prohibit or prevent' any officer or employee of the Federal Government from speaking with the Committee could have his or her salary withheld pursuant to section 713 of the Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Act."

Good. Let the Democrats set that precedent. Then the GOP can do the same in return as needed.

Sorry I've been out of pocket for so long. I have had several complication with my broken arm - won't bore you with details Did want to update you on Mr. TLG'S election. There were 3 candidates, although one was ruled ineligible NEVERTHELESS THE 3 CANDIDATE RULE WAS IN EFFECT..So he had to get 50% + 1. He got 45% so there will be runoff June 8th. Prayers appreciated!!

Captain Hate

The tax leaks are another hit job by the Uniparty to warn any outsiders not to run for the highest office again. It's really a concerted attack on the concept of citizen government.

Extraneus

Remember when the Dem memo about stopping Miguel Estrada was unearthed? It included the reason they were so determined, which was that he was Hispanic, and would have been devastating if the whole narrative wasn't immediately shifted to the question of how the document was uncovered. This led to GOP firings & resignations, if I remember right, but not the slightest recrimination for the racist Dems.

Probably not going to play out like that regarding Trump's taxes, huh?

This was posted last thread by MissM, and it reminds me to ask--is the House ONLY grandstanding?
More precisely, is ANY work being done on a federal budget for this year?

I'm OK with "shut the gov't down because the House was too busy to pass a budget"

Did anyone get fired for leaking Linda Tripp's personnel records? I'm pretty sure the answer is no. Maybe this time will be different but nobody seems to have the appetite for dealing harshly with the feral deep state.

Real estate developers in the 1980’s & 1990’s, more than 30 years ago, were entitled to massive write offs and depreciation which would, if one was actively building, show losses and tax losses in almost all cases. Much was non monetary. Sometimes considered “tax shelter,” ......

....you would get it by building, or even buying. You always wanted to show losses for tax purposes....almost all real estate developers did - and often re-negotiate with banks, it was sport. Additionally, the very old information put out is a highly inaccurate Fake News hit job!

There was nothing in that story that wasn't already reported during the 2016 campaign. It's a huge nothingburger.

Well, except for the fact that it's a crime, and it demonstrates (as though we needed more proof) that the entire federal bureaucracy is riddled with criminals and traitors; and that the Democrat party and the MSM are completely unhinged beyond any reason.

COMEY HITS BACK AT BARR: ‘THE FBI DOESN’T SPY, THE FBI INVESTIGATES’

“I have no idea what he’s talking about,” Comey said in an interview on “CBS This Morning.”

...

“The Republicans need to breathe into a paper bag,” he said.

“If we had confronted the same facts with a different candidate, say, a Democrat candidate, where one of their advisers was talking to a foreign adversary’s representative, about that adversary’s interfering in our election, they’d be screaming for the FBI to investigate it, and that’s all we did.”

“People just ought to look at the predication for the opening of that investigation. We should have been fired if we didn’t investigate this.”

Extraneus
Despite Comey’s claim, there is no evidence yet the FBI had learned a representative of a foreign adversary had talked to a Trump campaign adviser about interfering in the election by the time the bureau opened its investigation.

Plus, the bags under his eyes make it appear that he hasn't been sleeping well.

CH @ 10:02

I think that article is mischaracterizing Kelly’s comments just like Gatewaypundit and Sundance were guilty of mischaracterizing Wray’s testimony yesterday.

The WH Chief of Staff traditionally is 100% responsible for the activities of the WH staff. Everything WH staffers do has to be run by the CoS before it gets presented to the POTUS. Instead the past WH staffers who bypass the CoS and go directly to the POTUS on policy issues likely got fired.

Ivanka and Jared are unique WH staffers and thanks to their family relationship could bypass Kelly and go straight to Trump. I think it’s reasonable on Kelly’s part to get frustrated if Ivanka and Jared left him out of the loop on major policy issues, especially if it was foreign policy related which we know Kushner is heavily involved with. Regardless of their relationship with Trump bypassing the chain of command is typically frowned upon.

I think Kelly was just explaining how this was a unique challenge he had to deal with on a daily basis. I think Kelly is smart enough to realize it would be colossally stupid on his part to insist Ivanka and Jared seek his permission before discussing issues with Trump.

Tom,

Kelly was smart enough to avoid the land mines to become a general and he's plenty savvy enough to know what to avoid in a gotcha interview, like even subjecting himself to one. Regarding Gateway Pundit, as long as they insist on using gossipy Jim Hoft on these "blockbusters", they're not a credible source.

Wray parsed his words to indicate his personal knowledge of FBI actions were limited to what occurred after he became FBI Director. He said the allegations of misconduct by the FBI that occurred against Trump were under investigation by the IG and that he had no personal knowledge of what all occurred during that timeframe. His statement got dishonestly twisted by both the Fake News media and pundits like Gatewaypundit and Sundance.

So Krassenstein is the first and third response to Trump's casino tweet, and he even mentions that he grew up in Atlantic City or something, meaning he had at least a few seconds to compose his tweet after he read Trump's.

Does Twitter allow people to pay extra to be the highest response? If not, how is it possible unless Twitter is holding Trump's, giving Krassenstein a heads-up and allowing him time to schedule his response for right after they publish Trump's?

Is anyone looking into this obviously corrupt situation?

The sources said that the motive of the alleged shooters went beyond bullying and involved revenge and anger towards others at the school and that at least one of the suspects was involved in legal and illegal drug use and had been in therapy.
