The squirming has begun, and they’ve begun to throw each other under the bus.
Via The Hill:
Things seem to be moving quickly now. It has been a remarkable few weeks in American history. Momentum is building toward uncovering the distasteful possibility that the targeting of a U.S. presidential campaign was actually a political operation, fostered at the highest levels of government, masquerading as an FBI counterintelligence investigation.
Attorney General William Barr has signaled that his interest in examining the origins of the investigation into the Trump campaign extends beyond whether the FBI operated “by the book,” as former FBI Director James Comey asserts. Barr also wants to understand the role that the larger intelligence community, or IC, may have played in all of this.
Barr has thrown punches that have left an interesting mix of characters with a standing eight count. Certain eyes around D.C. are a little glassy right now.
Barr’s words and actions are telling. First, he raised the concern that the Trump campaign was “spied” upon. His use of the word “spying” appears more calculated than casual. The wailing and gnashing of teeth that followed is also telling. “The FBI doesn’t spy” became the sputtering counter-refrain of those trying to mask their nervousness.
It’s a fair point that’s beside the point. The FBI is charged with acting under strict legal restrictions and court orders. Spying is not a term traditionally associated with those activities.
ICE Scolds Prince George’s County DOC For Ignoring Deportation Hold On MS-13 Members Who Then Allegedly Murdered Girl
And nobody can seem to explain how it happened.
BALTIMORE (FOX 5 DC) – Two teens charged with the murder of a 14-year-old girl in Prince George’s County were in the country illegally, previously locked up and should not have been walking free according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
ICE says it had a deportation detainer for Salvadoran nationals Josue Rafael Fuentes-Ponce, 16, and Joel Ernesto Escobar, 17 and had notified the Prince George’s County Department of Corrections after the teens were arrested in Prince George’s County last year accused of attempted murder and gang-related charges. ICE says it was never notified when the pair was released.
“These individuals had demonstrated violent criminal behavior before, and because they were released in spite of the lawful detainer, they were afforded an opportunity to take a life,” said ICE Baltimore Field Office Director Diane Witte in a statement.
Talk about racist. This is where the extremist left goes.

Whiteness has become “toxic” under schools Chancellor Richard Carranza’s regime, insiders charge.
At least four top Department of Education executives who have been demoted or stripped of duties under Carranza’s sweeping reorganization are poised to sue the city, claiming he has created “an environment which is hostile toward whites,” a source told The Post.
The women — all white, veteran administrators — contend they were pushed aside for less qualified persons of color.
“These decisions are being made because DOE leadership believes that skin color plays a role in how to get equity — that white people can’t convey the message,” said a source familiar with the complaints.
“There’s a toxic whiteness concept going on.”
Davida Perry, managing partner of Schwartz Perry & Heller, a law firm focusing on employment discrimination and sex harassment cases, represents the women. She declined to comment pending the filing of the suit, which is expected within two weeks.
Under Carranza’s leadership, sources said, whites, in some cases, are being told they must give up power or lose responsibilities no matter how well they have performed.
Juan Williams is the definition of an idiot.
Via Daily Caller:
Fox News’ contributor Juan Williams faced backlash from the other hosts on The Five Tuesday, after calling President Donald Trump an “idiot.”
They were discussing Trump’s latest jabs at Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden when Williams turned to conversation to Republican Michigan Rep. Justin Amash, who became the first GOP member to back impeachment, last weekend.
“I think if we invited Donald Trump to the table to play poker with The Five, I’d take his money big time,” Williams stated. “It’s like a poker player and he keeps blinking. He’s like, ‘I know what’s going on.’ He thinks Joe Biden is a threat in Pennsylvania. That’s why he’s attacking Joe Biden like that. He’s not attacking Kamala Harris. He’s not going after anybody else. He’s going after Joe Biden, he’s going after the media sometimes.”
He went on, “He’s going after Justin Amash. Why? There’s a Republican whose finally saying it’s time to impeach this idiot. Yes, this is no coincidence.”

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — A New Jersey man has been arrested on terror charges after he allegedly sought to send money to support Hamas, as well as expressing a desire to shoot pro-Israel supporters at a march and bomb the Israeli consulate and Trump Tower.
The man — identified as Jonathan Xie, 20, of Basking Ridge — also allegedly sent money abroad to support Hamas. The U.S. attorney’s office says Xie sent $100 in December to a person he thought was affiliated with a faction of Hamas. In an online video, he allegedly displayed a handgun and said he wanted to “shoot the pro-Israel demonstrators.”
He also allegedly made threats against pro-Israel groups in the U.S.
Xie is charged with attempting to provide material support to a designated terrorist organization, making false statements and transmitting a threat in interstate commerce.
Xie appeared in federal court in Newark Wednesday. He is being held without bail. His public defender didn’t say whether he would file a motion for a bail hearing.

Hope the grifting was worth the consequences for both of them.
NEW YORK (AP) — Michael Avenatti, the attorney who rocketed to fame through his representation of porn star Stormy Daniels in her battles with President Donald Trump, was charged Wednesday with ripping her off.
Federal prosecutors in New York City say Avenatti used a doctored document to divert about $300,000 that Daniels was supposed to get from a book deal, then used the money for personal and business expenses. Only half of that money was paid back, prosecutors said.
Daniels isn’t named in the court filing, but the details of the case, including the date her book was released, make it clear that she is the client involved.
Avenatti denied the allegations on Twitter.
“No monies relating to Ms. Daniels were ever misappropriated or mishandled. She received millions of dollars worth of legal services and we spent huge sums in expenses. She directly paid only $100.00 for all that she received. I look forward to a jury hearing the evidence,” he wrote.
Avenatti added in a later tweet that his agreement for representing Daniels “included a percentage of any book proceeds.”
And this guy seriously has anything to say about anyone else?
A charity run by the wife of Rep. Elijah Cummings received millions from special interest groups and corporations that had business before her husband’s committee and could have been used illegally, according to an IRS complaint filed by an ethics watchdog group.
Cummings, 68, a Maryland Democrat, is chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. His wife, Maya Rockeymoore, 48, is the chairman of the Maryland Democratic Party and briefly ran in the state’s gubernatorial race last year. The couple married in 2008. Cummings was once heavily in debt — in part due to hefty child support payments to his first wife and two other women he had children with — but his financial situation has improved considerably over the past decade.
Rockeymoore runs two entities, a nonprofit group called the Center for Global Policy Solutions and a for-profit consulting firm called Global Policy Solutions, LLC, whose operations appear to have overlapped, according to the IRS complaint filed by watchdog group the National Legal and Policy Center on Monday. The complaint states that the arrangement may have been used to derive “illegal private benefit.”
Global Policy Solutions received more than $6.2 million in grants between 2013 and 2016, according to tax records. Several of the nonprofit group’s financial backers — which included Google, J.P Morgan, and Prudential — have business interests before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Cummings has served as Democratic chairman of the committee since January and previously served as ranking member.
Same clown who filed articles of impeachment just 10months after Trump was sworn in.
How could anyone not love this woman?
If he said this now he’d be kicked out of the Democratic party.
Speaking of someone who doesn’t have a valid argument.

A California professor expanded on his view that Game of Thrones is a reflection of white supremacy in a Saturday interview, alleging that the main black male character “must be literally castrated to be ‘good.'”
Antioch University professor Timothy Malone commented on his essay for left-wing publication TruthOut, titled “The Real Monster in ‘Game of Thrones’ Is Its Hidden Reactionary Ideology” during an interview with Salon.
In his original essay, he describes Game of Thrones as “a show about our relation to the prison, our obsession to disappear people, who, once on the other side of the wall, are not ‘people’ anymore. The wall represents the boundaries of ‘us’ as a nation, and those who are not ‘us’ and must be excluded: the criminal and the immigrant.”
Malone compares the wildlings beyond the Wall to poor whites and the White Walkers or Others to racial “others.”
“It is whiteness as social capital,” the professor explains in TruthOut. “You may be poor and at the bottom of the hierarchy, but at least you’re not Black, (or in this case, an ice zombie). That’s why [the wildlings] were located beyond the wall (the prison). In the show, they become deputized in the struggle against White Walkers; in reality, the device has been to turn some percentage of them into cops and prison guards with good benefits to ensure their loyalty to white supremacist capital.”
Trump Blasts Pelosi In Fiery Presser — Cuts Infrastructure Meeting Short After ‘Cover Up’ Allegations
They want to play games, they get nothing back. Too busy trying to impeach him to actually do anything real.
Via Daily Caller:
President Donald Trump demanded in a surprise press conference Wednesday that Democrats stop investigating him or else he won’t work with them on legislative issues.
The president’s remarks, which were delivered to press in the White House Rose Garden, came shortly after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, and other Democrats were expected to be at the White House for a meeting on infrastructure.
The meeting was cut short, the president revealed, because he was upset with Pelosi’s claim that he was involved in a “cover up” related to the Mueller investigation into alleged Russian collusion.
“I came here for a meeting with Democrats, not thinking that they wanted to do infrastructure or anything else other than investigate,” Trump opened his remarks. “Nancy Pelosi, just before our meeting, made a statement that we believe that the president of the United States is engaged in a cover up.”

Via Seattle Times:
King County prosecutors Monday charged a 51-year-old Burien man with luring and second-degree assault for allegedly trying to drag a Federal Way girl into his truck last week.
Esequiel Medina-Vasquez was arrested Thursday night and remains jailed in lieu of $100,000 bail, jail and court records show.
According to the charges:
A 14-year-old girl was walking home from school Wednesday along Southwest 320th Street in Federal Way when she saw a dark pickup drive past her, make a U-turn, and drive past her again, stopping ahead of her at 25th Avenue Southwest. The driver got out of the pickup and approached the girl, gesturing for her to come to him and speaking to her in Spanish, which she didn’t understand.
The girl told the man no and crossed 25th Avenue Southwest, walking in front of his pickup. The man then ran up behind the girl, hooked his arm around her neck and began pulling her toward the open passenger door of his truck. The girl was able to break freeand ran home, where she told her parents what had happened. They called 911.

Tell that to Minnesota and you have to primary her.

Hundreds of Jews gathered in Times Square in New York City on Monday evening to protest anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and chanted, “Omar must go!”
“Following the highly-publicized allegations of the Minnesotan congresswoman’s antisemitism and her statement downplaying the 9/11 terrorist attacks, New York native and activist Joe Diamond organized a rally and billboard launch calling for her removal,” The Jerusalem Post reported. “Speakers at the event included former Democratic New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind and award-winning advocate of Christian Zionism Laurie Cardoza-Moore.”
“In my lifetime, I cannot think of any other politician who presents a bigger threat to the alliance between the U.S. and Israel and to America’s Jews,” Diamond told JPost. “This woman is an ardent antisemite, and she doesn’t even try to hide it.”
“Ilhan and her clique are well aware of what we are doing,” Diamond added. “And we’re not done. Everyone left really energized – ready to do whatever must be done next.”
