As Democrats scream about seeing the un-redacted Mueller report, abuse House subpoena powers to keep the Russian collusion witch hunt going, and pry for President Donald Trump’s private information, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) is saying Trump is trying to “weaponize law enforcement” for intending to release documents that would shed light on the motives of the Mueller investigation.
“While Trump stonewalls the public from learning the truth about his obstruction of justice, Trump and Barr conspire to weaponize law enforcement and classified information against their political enemies. The coverup has entered a new and dangerous phase. This is un-American,” Schiff wrote in a Tweet.
The decision was made on Thursday by the Trump administration to declassify certain documents pertaining to the origin of FBI spook Robert Mueller’s now-completed Russian collusion probe.
“Today’s action will help ensure that all Americans learn the truth about the events that occurred, and the actions that were taken, during the last Presidential election and will restore confidence in our public institutions,” Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.
Attorney General Bill Barr had previously announced that he was hiring non-partisan bulldog John Durham to investigate the origins of the probe. The U.S. attorney has received praise from top Democrats for his exemplary record in rooting out corruption over the course of many decades.
Meanwhile, the President amps up his rhetoric – perhaps foreshadowing for revelations to come as these documents are released and digested by the public.
My Campaign for President was conclusively spied on. Nothing like this has ever happened in American Politics. A really bad situation. TREASON means long jail sentences, and this was TREASON!

Trump doubled down on his accusation when pressed on it by the fake news media.
“Well I think a number of people, and I think what (sic) you look is that they have unsuccessfully tried to take down the wrong person,” Trump said.
Then Trump started naming names.
“If you look at Comey, if you look at McCabe, if you look at probably people higher than that. If you look at Strzok, if you look at his lover Lisa Page, his wonderful lover,” he said.
“The two lovers they talked openly. You know they didn’t use their private server because they didn’t want to get caught, so they used the government server. That was not a good move,” the President added.
Schiff isn’t the only prominent Democratic Party representative who is losing his composure over Trump’s push for transparency. Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), who has feuded with Trump for decades, apparently passed out during an event in New York City on Friday.
The Democrats are not doing a good job of maintaining their facade as Trump gets ready to strike back following their multi-year investigation that ultimately cleared Trump of Russian collusion.
Ilhan Omar’s Grandfather Was a Government Official in One of Africa’s Worst Dictatorships
Talk about ‘systematic oppression.’
As Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar accuses American civilization of being a “system of oppression,” it appears that the progressive Democrat has provided little to no public information on her own grandfather’s activities and public duties as a government official in one of Africa’s worst dictatorships.
Omar has described her grandfather, Abukar Omar, as the Director of the National Marine Transport in Somalia in the 1980’s and possibly earlier, serving in the government of then-President Siad Barre. Barre, who took power in 1969, originally governed the country as a Marxist-Leninist before switching his Cold War allegiances to the United States in the late 70’s.
Barre’s government is known as a prolific human rights abuser, persecuting the nation’s Isaaq tribe in a series of government sponsored killings that scholars have referred to as a “forgotten genocide.” Estimates of the civilian casualties of the Isaaq genocide range from 50,000 to 200,000 people.
Omar, who was a child at the time, has also described her family leaving Somalia in 1991, the very year that President Barre was overthrown from power in a revolution that continues to have a destabilizing effect on the East African nation to this day.
It’s of some public interest that a more thorough explanation of Akubar Omar’s duties as an official serving under Siad Barre be provided, especially considering the former Barre official was granted refugee status in the United States sometime after Barre was overthrown in Somalia’s 1991 Civil War.
Omar has described her family as understanding that they were “no longer welcome” in the country as a result of the civil war, a development that may very well have come as a result of her grandfather’s work as a nominally high-ranking government official under the Barre regime. Rep. Omar recounted an incident in which what seems to have been a family compound was placed under siege by rebels who vandalized the property in a 2016 profile with the Minneapolis City Pages.
Omar biographies also suggest that some of her aunts and uncles also worked as civil servants under Barre’s government.
An inquiry into Abukar Omar’s official duties as the Director of the National Marine Transport under Barre’s regime was sent to Omar’s press office, and the Congresswoman has yet to respond as of Wednesday night.
Ilhan Omar was also one of the few Democratic members of Congress to decline to formally vote to recognize the Armenian Genocide conducted by the Ottoman Empire after World War I, claiming the United States should be focusing on the legacy of slavery and persecution of Native Americans instead.
Certainly, one cannot be held to account for actions that their extended relatives engage in when they’re a child; but it’s quite rich that Omar has declined to account for her own grandfather’s seeming participation in a very real and historically documented “system of oppression” in any publicly known remarks on the family connection, while castigating American civilization for its supposed injustices.
