FLIPPER? Lisa Page Cooperates, Helps Investigators in Closed-Door Session

Published

on

Disgraced former FBI lawyer Lisa Page met with members of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees on Friday, and was apparently quite helpful.

“She’s been willing to help in the spirit of transparency. … We’ve certainly learned additional things today,” said Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC).

According to Fox News, Meadows thinks that the American people would be “would be happy” with what investigators learned during Friday’s hearing, that he found Page to be both “credible” and “cooperative.” and that her willingness to help in the investigation into the misdeeds of the FBI during the Clinton email scandal “speaks well of her.”

“There is new information,” Meadows said. “And that information is credible.”

Lawmakers declined to specify details of the testimony, but the questions were focused on text messages between Page and her fellow disgraced FBI lawyer and lover Peter Strzok.

Page defied a subpoena to testify publicly to Congress on Wednesday, and would have been held in contempt of Congress had she not appeared Friday.

According to Kyle Cheney of Politico, Page answered questions that Strzok would not.

“Rep. [John] Ratcliffe [R-TX] says Lisa PAGE answered many questions Strzok didn’t and that lawmakers learned a lot of new information,” Cheney tweeted. “He declined to provide any other details.”

Lawmakers are now focused on which testimony from Strzok was corroborated by Page.

Not all of the officials present at the session were as impressed as Meadows.

“Lisa Page is not an FBI employee, but the FBI was here providing counsel and giving her direction as to which questions to answer or not answer and there is a question as to the propriety of that before the House,” Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) said. “I didn’t agree with her characterization of every text message and every piece of evidence, but we did not see the smug attitude from Lisa Page that we saw from Peter Strzok.”

Page is expected to appear for a second closed door session Monday afternoon.

Democrat Superdelegates Willing to Overturn Primary Delegate Count to Stop Bernie

The Democratic Party still has a ‘superdelegate’ system.

Published

on

New York Times interviews with several Democrat superdelegates revealed that the party elites are willing and prepared to block a Bernie Sanders nomination if they have the ability.

The superdelegates only enter into play if the Democrat nomination process goes to a second ballot at the party’s convention in Milwaukee. For that to happen, no candidate could possess an outright majority of (pledged) delegates on the first ballot.

In such a case, superdelegates could plausibly prove instrumental in deciding the nomination.

Bernie Sanders has gone on the record stating that the Democrat candidate who possesses the most delegates at the convention-even if they’re not an outright majority- should be the nominee. Every other Democrat candidate, with the exception of Tulsi Gabbard, has declined to back such a proposition.

Superdelegates interviewed by the Times seemed relatively unapologetic about the prospect of overturning the will of a plurality of Democrat voters and handing the nomination to a candidate with less popular votes and delegates.

Bernie wants to redefine the rules and just say he just needs a plurality,” said Jay Jacobs, chair of the New York Democrat Party. “I don’t think we buy that. I don’t think the mainstream of the Democratic Party buys that. If he doesn’t have a majority, it stands to reason that he may not become the nominee.”

The Times interviewed 93 superdelegates, finding consensus behind such a controversial proposition.

Superdelegates lost their right to participate in the first nominating ballot for the presidential primary after the 2016 election. Many Democrats were incensed at their undemocratic role in the nominating process, especially in light of their overwhelming allegiance to Hillary Clinton in the 2016 primary.

Superdelegates are composed of party donors, elected officials, and other elite Democrats granted the powerful position by the DNC.

It’s worth noting that primary season talk of contested conventions, be it in the Republican or Democrat Party, rarely materializes. Hope of a contested convention is usually limited to a pipe dream that party segments resort to when it becomes too obvious that their preferred candidate is not going to be selected by voters.
