Published

Former FBI Director and confirmed leaker James Comey appears to be following the Washington Post reporter who broke the “Russian hacking” story. She also reported Wednesday’s allegation that Trump is under investigation for possible obstruction of justice.

On Wednesday evening, the Washington Post published a story alleging that a special counsel is investigating Trump for possible obstruction of justice — citing unnamed sources. One of four reporters who worked on the story was Ellen Nakashima — whose recent reporting for the publication has a sharp focus on Comey.

The story claims that “Trump had received private assurances from then-FBI Director James B. Comey starting in January that he was not personally under investigation. Officials say that changed shortly after Comey’s firing.”

The article relies entirely on leaked information from anonymous sources.

In March, Comey revealed that he has secret Twitter and Instagram accounts — which he stated both have very few followers.

Within hours, Gizmodo journalist Ashley Feinberg had tracked down accounts that appeared to belong to Comey — using the name Reinhold Niebuhr.

When it was discovered by Feinberg, the Twitter account, @projectexile7, was following 27 people, and followed by just one person — Benjamin Wittes of Lawfare, who happens to be a personal friend of Comey. The account did not have any identifying information, and was simply an egg account without a photo.

Following Gizmodo’s explosive report, the account’s followers boomed to over 7,000 before the account was set to private and locked down from public viewing. 

As Feinberg reported, Comey was following several journalists who were aggressively covering the FBI’s work on the Democrats’ Trump-Russia witch hunt. Among them were the Washington Post’s Nakashima and David Ignatius, as well as Adam Goldman and David Sanger of the New York Times.

But Nakashima is the one who broke the “Russia hacking” story, and now the new “obstruction of justice” story.

Nakashima was the one who first reported that “Russian hackers” broke into the Democratic National Committee servers to steal their Trump opposition files, a Twitter user who goes by “@GOPPollAnalyst” noted.

In the article, Nakashima cited anonymous “US officials” who had informed her that “networks of presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were also targeted by Russian spies.”

“Russian government hackers penetrated the computer network of the Democratic National Committee and gained access to the entire database of opposition research on GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump,” Nakashima wrote on June 14, 2016.

Interestingly, the possible Comey account also liked a tweet from the New York Times about General Mike Flynn and Jared Kushner meeting a Russian envoy. The report cited anonymous “current and former American officials” who claimed that Flynn “had contacts with Mr. Kislyak during the campaign.”

During Comey’s much anticipated hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee, the former FBI Director admitted to giving his memo about his meeting with the president to a friend so that they could leak the information to the press. He claimed that he did so in order to prompt the appointment of a special counsel to investigate links between the administration and Russia.

In response to Comey’s shocking admission, Trump’s personal lawyer Marc Kasowitz released a statement saying that the former FBI Director was trying to “undermine this administration with selective and illegal leaks of classified information and privileged communications.”

We reached out to Nakashima for comment, but did not receive a response by time of publishing.

Chuck Schumer Threatens Supreme Court Justices: “You Will Pay the Price”

Chilling language.

Published

on

Chuck Schumer outright threatened two Supreme Court Justices when speaking at a pro-abortion event on Wednesday, using vengeful and vindictive language when discussing recent pro-life court case rulings reached by the court.

Watch here:

I want to tell you, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh…. You have unleashed the whirlwind, and you will pay the price! You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.

Such rhetoric might be expected in one of Kim Jong Un’s regular missive of threats against the United States. But it’s shocking to hear a sitting Senate Majority Leader slam nonpartisan Supreme Court Justices in such a bold fashion, totally disregarding the court’s traditional independence from everyday politics.

The rally by a pro-abortion group was being held in advance of an expected court ruling on a Louisiana abortion law. The law requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at state hospitals.

Republican legislators slammed Schumer for his irresponsible and threatening rhetoric at the abortion rally after footage of his language was seen on Twitter.

Schumer may have been alluding to potential Democratic plans to impeach Kavanaugh, and possibly even Gorsuch, removing them from the Supreme Court. The Court’s now conservative majority has placed a major stumbling block in the way of the Left’s preferred strategy of seizing power through judicial activism.

Schumer’s unprecedented language, especially coming from a senior party official who should remain level-headed, demonstrates the Democratic Party’s willing to cast aside all formal norms of federal politics and government. They’re willing to do whatever it takes in order to get their way.
