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.”

House Republicans Stupidly Try To Cut Medicare, Social Security In Election Year
House Republicans continue to advocate against their own political interests, pushing a new budget bill that would make grave cuts to Medicare and Social Security in this 2018 midterm election year.
While the congressional Republicans believe their bill will balance the budget in nine years, it would also inflame the many middle-aged people and senior citizens who actually vote Republican. It is unclear if House Republican leadership actually cares at all about the people who vote for them, which gives the bill some hope of passing.
ThinkAdvisor reports: “The GOP’s Budget for a Brighter American Future seeks to, over the next decade, save $5.4 trillion on mandatory programs — including Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid — and includes reconciliation instructions for 11 House authorizing committees to find at least $302 billion in deficit reduction. Reconciliation allows expedited passage of certain budgetary legislation on spending, revenues and the federal debt limit with a simple majority vote in both the House (218 votes) and Senate (51 votes). The House Budget Committee plans to start marking up the legislation on Wednesday and Thursday, and pass it out of committee. A vote by the full House could come next week.”
Fortunately, President Donald Trump has no plans to cut Social Security or Medicare, as he stressed on the campaign trail. Trump scored major points against his Republican opponents in the Wisconsin primary by vowing, “You’ll get your Social Security cut by Cruz or Kasich.” Trump carried that message to primary wins in New York and Indiana, sealing his win.
Paul Ryan, the collectivist, wants to cut Social Security and Medicare. In fact, he ran an entire national vice-presidential campaign on that politically disastrous premise, which was the most mind-bogglingly stupid platform in an election ever.
Ryan then turned around and passed $1 trillion-plus omnibus bills as House Speaker that fund Planned Parenthood and all kinds of other damaging or meaningless things. Why does the government seem dead-set on giving welfare benefits to illegal aliens and funding abortion, but then claiming that senior citizens who have paid into the system for years suddenly have to lose their own government checks?
Until Republicans actually get serious about cutting federal spending, their designs on Medicare and Social Security do absolutely nothing to solve our debt-ridden financial situation, they merely take money out of the pockets of people who are already getting disenfranchised by our government in every conceivable sense.
The Swamp makes no sense.
Week After U.S. Senate Nomination, Virginia Delegation Silent on Corey Stewart
A full week after Corey Stewart won the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate in Virginia, earning the right to take on incumbent Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA), elected officials at the highest level of the Virginia GOP have failed to announce their support for the candidate.
In fact, they have actively avoided the question, and predictably, Democrats have seized on the opportunity to make them look foolish.
GOP Rep. Barbara Comstock (VA-10) dodged American Bridge’s questions a few days ago:
— American Bridge (@American_Bridge) June 13, 2018
Big League Politics reached out to Comstock personally, and to her office. Neither returned a request for comment.
Alleged Republican Rep. Scott Taylor (VA-02) would not talk either:
— American Bridge (@American_Bridge) June 13, 2018
“Reach out to my office,” Taylor said.
Big League Politics did just that. Timothys Foster, Talyor’s spokesman, did not return our email request for comment.
Republican Rep. Dave Brat failed to express support for Stewart too, though he came close.
— American Bridge (@American_Bridge) June 13, 2018
“Judeo-Christian values, that’s what I’m running on,” said Brat. “I’ll support anyone who shares those values.”
Brat did not respond to Big League Politics’ request for comment either.
Stewart was embroiled in controversy during his primary run after the neo-liberal website Daily Wire ran a dishonest hit piece on him, claiming that he was an anti-Semite. There is no proof to support the allegation, other than Stewart’s support for Paul Nehlan, who made anti-semitic remarks. At the time of the questionable comments, Nehlan had the support of most of the GOP. He has since wholly denounced by the Stewart and the rest of the party.
For their part, the Republican Party of Virginia expressed support for Stewart via Twitter. When Stewart appeared on CNN for an interview with host Chris Cuomo, the liberal anchor tried to peg Stewart as a racist. Stewart replied by pointing out that Cuomo’s family has long been tied to anti-Semitism.
.@ChrisCuomo Oh and your brother, again NY GOV, publicly made fun of Jews like two months ago but, according to you, there is totally no racism or Antisemitism on the left side of the isle correct? https://t.co/kznowavkKK
— Virginia GOP (RPV) (@VA_GOP) June 14, 2018
Former RPV executive Shaun Kenney denounced the party’s support.
“It’s not just eccentric, it’s offensive,” he said. “In a previous era, had a member of RPV staff issued comments like that, I would have fired them on the spot.”
The morally superior virtue-signaling will get the Virginia GOP nowhere. Making false allegations of racism is a decades-old strategy used by Democrats against Republicans. They make the same claims against nearly every GOP candidate running for an important office.
But the establishment GOP, no matter how many times the Democrats have played the race card, still have not figured out the left’s tricks.
It is time to stand with Corey Stewart. Anything less is de facto support for Hillary Clinton sycophant Kaine, a hard-leftist who has failed Virginians in his tenure as a Senator.
Disgraced FBI Agent Strozk Willing to Testify Before House Judiciary Committee
A disgraced FBI agent who promised his colleagues that he “will stop” President Donald J. Trump from being elected is willing to testify before the House Judiciary Committee, according to a letter sent by his attorney Sunday.
According to the letter that was obtained by CNN, Aitan Goelman, lawyer for FBI agent Peter Strzok, says that House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte’s pursuit of a subpoena to compel Strzok to testify is “wholly unnecessary.”
Strzok “has been fully cooperative with the DOJ Office of Inspector General” and “intends to voluntarily appear and testify before [the House Judiciary] committee and any other Congressional committee that invites him.”
The recently released Inspector General’s report brought to light more anti-Trump text messages between Strzok and his lover, fellow agent Lisa Page. Both were terrified of a Trump presidency and apparently willing to try to stop it.
Rep. Mark Meadows said that this information was withheld from Congress — clearly by deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein and others.
This proves definitively what observers already know: James Comey’s FBI was weaponized against Trump in order to help Hillary Clinton win the election. Clinton was already the Democratic nominee when the following exchange occurred, courtesy of Thursday’s Inspector General report by Michael Horowitz. The conversation occurred on August 8, 2016:
“Lisa Page: [Trump is] not ever going to become President, right? Right?!
Strzok: No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.””
BLP Passage Ends.
Strzok also rigged the warrant of disgraced former Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner’s laptop to protect Hillary Clinton from the damaging information it contained.
“On October 29, 2016 Strzok broke FBI policy and emailed a sealed draft warrant for the Weiner emails to his personal email, ” former FBI Special Surveillance Group member Chuck Marler told Big League Politics. “Obviously he wanted to work on the draft out of view of the FBI and most likely allow someone else to view it for their input. What did he put in the warrant that was filed the following day”
Strzok appears willing to testify before the Committee without immunity and without invoking his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination.
