Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff is trying to cling to his chairmanship of the House Intelligence Committee as President Donald Trump calls for his resignation for office and the entire Republican side of the Committee formally calls for Schiff to resign as chairman. (READ — HOWLEY: Here’s The Full Story of How Obama, Hillary, and Brennan Carried Out The Crime of the Century).
Schiff’s hearing Thursday hosts Mike McFaul, former president Barack Obama’s ambassador to Russia during the period in which Obama told Putin henchman Dmitry Medvedev that he would have more “flexibility” to give the Russians our strategic defense information after his re-election.
Looking forward to testifying before Chairman Schiff's House Intelligence Committee this morning. https://t.co/gvOmeFkUnV

McFaul sat directly in front of then-unknown Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya at a June 2016 hearing, shortly before Natalia set up Don Jr. and Jared Kushner in a Trump Tower meeting while working with Fusion GPS head Glenn Simpson. Their plot led to FISA warrants to surveil President Donald Trump’s team as part of the years-long Russian collusion witch hunt that has now been debunked.
Fellow conspirator James Comey is also having a rough time.
Fired former FBI director James Comey told NBC News’ Lester Holt in an interview aired Wednesday that it’s “good news” special counsel Robert Mueller found no Russian collusion on the part of President Donald Trump or his campaign. (READ — Howley: Here’s The Full Story of How Obama, Hillary, and Brennan Carried Out The Crime of the Century).
Comey said the Mueller result is “good news no matter what party you’re associated with,” and added: “It’ll be important to read the entire report, but, based on what I’ve seen, this is a good thing.” Comey also said that Barr and Mueller should have the benefit of the doubt when it comes to their assertion that Trump did not obstruct justice.
The American people are having fun with Comey, who recently took bizarre photographs of himself in the woods asking deep questions of the Universe as the Mueller report was turned in and attorney general William Barr confirmed that Trump did not collude with Russians or obstruct justice.

Former FBI director James Comey had a white binder marked “Clinton Emails” in his office on May 16, 2017, a few days after he was fired, as the Department of Justice was trying to get back the items in Comey’s office safe. (READ: Comey Had Hillary’s Backup Email Device).
The FBI officially released the DOJ’s “Inventory” Receipt for Property documents listing the stuff Comey had in his office safe.
Look below at Inventory Item #17, which originally said “TOP SECRET,” then that marking was crossed out. In its final form, it says:
‘White Binder – CLINTON EMAILS’
Here’s the scoop provided to Big League Politics by whistleblower Mark Pullen:
In the exit documents for James Comey’s departure from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, a page among the documents showed Comey had a binder in his safe that contained Hillary Clinton’s emails. The document does not show what medium was used to store the emails within the binder. The binder could have had sleeved pages for CDs which could have had Clinton’s email to include the missing emails that were Bleach-Bit wiped by Paul Combetta while the server was under a subpoena order from Congress to preserve. In the FBI’s report on Clinton’s mishandling of Classified information, it has a page from then FBI agent Peter Strzok to the National Security Agency: an order to preserve any emails sent to or from @clintonemails.com. We know from Edward Snowden’s disclosures that the NSA captures all email traffic within the United States. I am sure the NSA had all of Clinton’s emails even the ones she had deleted. The questions are, did Strzok take sole possession of the emails for the FBI? Were those emails in Comey’s safe the copies from the NSA? Comey said he expected a Clinton victory in the presidential election. Was Comey holding these emails as leverage over a possible future president Hillary Clinton to retain his position as the director of the FBI?
Former Mexican Defense Minister is Arrested in Los Angeles for Allegedly Protecting a Drug Cartel
More Proof that Mexico is An Institutional Dumpster Fire
Retired Mexican General Salvador Cienfuegos was arrested on October 15, 2020.
According to allegations from U.S. prosecutors, General Cienfuegos received bribes from a powerful Mexican cartel and allowed to smuggle drugs into the United States.
An indictment that was unsealed on October 17, revealed that from December 2015 to February 2017, while he served as Mexico’s Secretary of National Defense, Cienfuegos allegedly worked on behalf of a drug cartel. In working with this drug cartel, Cienfuegos earned the nickname of “El Padrino” (The Godfather) by helping the H-2 Cartel move drugs from Mexico to the U.S.
“The defendant [Cienfuegos] abused that public position to help the H-2 Cartel, an extremely violent Mexican drug trafficking organization, traffic thousands of kilograms of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and marijuana into the United States,” prosecutors contended in a letter sent to a U.S. District Court judge in New York.
“In exchange for bribe payments,” the letter argued, he allowed the cartel “to operate with impunity in Mexico” while it operated distribution networks in cities such as Los Angeles and Las Vegas and in other states such as Ohio, Minnesota, North Carolina and New York.
U.S. agents took the retired general into custody on October 15 at Los Angeles International Airport. Cienfuegos is expected to be transferred to New York.
Cienfuegos served as defense secretary from 2012 to 2018 under the administration of then-President Enrique Peña Nieto.
“The main problem in Mexico is corruption,” López Obrador declared during a news briefing on October 16 regarding the incident.
In López Obrador’s view, it is “regrettable” that someone in such a high position of government has deep connections to drug cartels.
“This is a process of progressive degradation,” López Obrador continued, “and we are trying now to figure out how deep the corruption goes.”
As of now, Cienfuegos is the most prominent Mexican official to have been arrested on drug trafficking charges. In 2019, U.S. authorities arrested Genaro García Luna, the Secretary of Public Security under the administration of former President Felipe Calderón, for allegedly being involved in drug trafficking.
According to the U.S. indictment, Cienfuegos was working with H-2, an alleged branch of the Beltrán-Leyva criminal cartel. On top of that, prosecutors claims that the retired general received bribes to shield the cartel and its leaders. He then proceeded to inform them beforehand of military actions planned against them and even used troops to attack a rival cartel.
Mexico is clearly on the ropes institutionally. With a current president (AMLO) who wants to take a “hugs not bullets” approach to crime, the country will continue to spiral into chaos as drug cartels become even more powerful. President Trump has been right all along in building a wall to protect America from the potential spillover effects of Mexico’s drug war.
