The leading Republican candidate in Virginia’s GOP Senate primary held a midday press conference in front of the J. Edgar Hoover FBI Building, the national headquarters of the FBI, to call for a special counsel to investigate the bureau’s interference in the 2016 political cycle.
“I think we owe it to the American people and I think we owe it to Virginians,” he said. “To get to the bottom of this scandal.”
“The vast majority of the employees of the Federal Bureau of Investigation are patriotic, hard-working and trying to do their jobs,” he said.
“This whole scandal really started in Virginia,” said Corey A. Stewart, the chairman of the Prince George’s County Board of Supervisors and the one-time state campaign chairman for Donald J. Trump.
Stewart said that former Virginia governor Terence R. McAuliffe, a close political ally of President William J. Clinton and his wife Hillary R. Clinton, gave more than $600,000 to the state senate campaign of Dr. Jill McCabe, the wife of Deputy FBI Director Andrew G. McCabe.
The former first lady was the 2016 Democratic nominee for president against Donald J. Trump.
Watch this video of Corey A. Stewart’s Feb. 7, 2018 press conference in front of the FBI headquarters in Washington:
If Stewart wins the primary, he is expected to face Democrat Sen. Timothy M. Kaine, who ran for vice president on the ticket with the former first lady.
Stewart, an attorney, said he is calling for two things in the wake of the scandalous revelations surrounding the FBI.
“We are calling on Tim Kaine to come clean in the Clinton campaign’s attempt to essentially corrupt the FBI and their involvement using the dossier and paying for it,” he said.
Stewart said his second demand was for a special counsel to investigate the FBI’s involvement in the 2016 political cycle and the payment to the deputy director’s wife’s campaign.
When the FBI was investigating the former first lady’s handling of classified electronic correspondence through her private email server, while she was secretary of state, the deputy director was tainted and should have recused himself from the probe long before he did in October 2016, he said.
Not only did McCabe insert himself in the Clinton email investigation, he is also the man, who signed off on a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant to monitor Trump campaign volunteer and American citizen Carter W. Page, he said.
It is now public knowledge the warrants to spy on Page were justified by the so-called “Steele Dossier,” a political opposition research file paid for by the former first lady’s presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
“Using false information that was paid for by and generated by the Clinton campaign to issue a warrant to spy on a presidential candidate,” Stewart said.
“Those are the facts,” he said.
“It looks very shady,” he said. “It looks like corruption. It looks like corruption that was paid for and authorized by the Clinton campaign–and involves senior officials here at the FBI.”
Democrat Congressmen Introduce Term Limits Legislation for SCOTUS Justices As Trump Prepares Nominee
Three Democrat members of Congress are introducing legislation to institute term limits for Supreme Court justices, as President Trump prepares to nominate his third candidate for the court following the death of progressive liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Democrats Joe Kennedy, Ro Khanna, and Don Beyer are proposing legislation that would limit SCOTUS justice to a maximum term of eighteen years on the court.
Lifetime appointments to the highest court in our land undermine our democratic process and erode progress in our nation.
We must enact 18 year term limits on our Supreme Court justices to continue our march towards a more perfect union. https://t.co/9fCyggP686

Khanna has proposed an idea that would allow Presidents to appoint two judges in each term. “Senior” members of the court would be required to basically retired for every new member of the court.
When I first ran for Congress in 2014, I proposed limiting terms of Supreme Court Justice to 18-appointments.
Given the recent, dramatic politicization of the Court, it's time for real reform.
— Rep. Don Beyer (@RepDonBeyer) September 25, 2020
It’s pretty funny the Democrats are uniting behind these proposals the moment they appear primed to lose control of the Supreme Court for a generation. They weren’t complaining when Obama was trying to replace Antonin Scalia with progressive Merrick Garland, even going so far as claiming that the stealth liberal was entitled to the seat. Reports emerging Friday suggest that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a mostly conservative judge with a pro-life and immigration hawk judicial record.
The judicial branch of government is arguably the most flawed element of American governance, and it’s highly questionable how institutions such as the Supreme Court are able to appoint themselves a nearly unlimited amount of political power.
A better reform proposals would be to institute term limits for justices that only go into effect after the current members of the court vacate their seats. Anything else is simply a political power grab.
