White House

WATCH: Comey Denied Under Oath That There Was Any Obstruction During His Investigations

Published

on

As the media continues their fit of hysterics over a memo that an anonymous person supposedly saw and told the New York Times about, the liberal media is conveniently forgetting to mention that former FBI Director James Comey already testified under oath that there was no obstruction from the White House.

The memo, and latest tool in the political hit job against the will of voters, allegedly states that Trump had told Comey during a meeting in February that he hoped he would get over the witch hunt against General Mike Flynn.

However, testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee on FBI oversight on May 3, Comey himself admit that there had been no politically motivated interference during his tenure.

When asked by Senator Mazie Hirono if the Attorney General or senior officials at the Department of Justice could halt an FBI investigation that they do not agree with, Comey responded that they could, in theory. He added that during his time at the FBI, he was never in a situation where he was told to stop an investigation for political purposes.

“It would be a big deal to tell the FBI to stop doing something that — without an appropriate purpose. I mean where oftentimes they give us opinions that we don’t see a case there and so you ought to stop investing resources in it. But I’m talking about a situation where we were told to stop something for a political reason, that would be a very big deal. It’s not happened in my experience,” Comey testified before the Senate.

The statement the Times reported, if true, was also not serious enough for Comey to report the situation to the Attorney General or Department of Justice.

So which is it? Did the Times report fake news handed to them by someone with an agenda, or did Comey lie to the Senate?

Judging by the New York Times’ rush to publish unsubstantiated claims as fact in recent times, the first option would be a reasonable assumption.

Earlier this month, the Times, quoting three unnamed “Congressional officials,” alleged that Comey went to Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, for additional funds. They noted that Rosenstein is also the one who wrote the Justice Department memo that supported Comey’s firing.

Rosenstein is the highest official involved in the Russian investigation, as Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recused himself.

Interestingly, Sarah Isgur Flores, the director of public affairs at the Department of Justice, flatly denied that Comey asked for more money or more resources — and unlike the Times’ sources, she was willing to go on record with her name.

To add insult to the fake news’ injury, Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe also denied their accusation.

Given the Times’ recent track record with anonymous sources, perhaps it is time for the America to demand full documents or recordings to accompany their wild tales, at least until they can earn back the trust of the public.

Trump Says See Ya To The UN Human Rights Council, Announces U.S. Withdrawal

We’re NOT Tired Of Winning!

Published

on

The United Nations Human Rights Council doesn’t deserve their namesake with countries like Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, and Cuba having representatives on the council. Now President Donald Trump’s Administration has made it clear that they don’t deserve to have the United States as representatives in a Tuesday decision to withdraw the U.S.’s membership.

The announcement was made by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley and wasn’t all that surprising. The United States has feuded with the U.N.’s Human Rights Council since the President first took office.

Conflicts between the U.S. and the U.N. Human Rights Council flared up most notably in recent weeks after the 47-member body voted to condemn Israel. The Human Rights Council considers Israel the world’s number one human rights abuser, while continually taking the side of Palestine in the border dispute between the two countries.

While the council’s treatment of Israel was the stated reason for the withdrawal, the U.N. Human Rights Council has long been a thorn in the side of many tenants of Donald Trump’s agenda.

For many years, the U.N. Human Rights Council has fought to make abortion a human right. Many members of the council are also extremely opposed to President Trump’s strict anti-illegal immigration stance. Just a day before the decision to withdraw from membership in the council, the U.N.’s human rights chief blasted Trump for his work to enforce federal immigration law in the United States.

During Monday’s meeting session Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein told the body that  “in the United States, I am deeply concerned by recently adopted policies which punish children for their parents’ actions.”

The Trump Administration’s decision to withdraw from the U.N. Human Rights Council is yet another accomplishment for anyone who believes in his “America First” message. Perhaps his next step could be leaving the United Nations all together.

Prince Harry is a Trump Fan

Published

In another huge loss for American liberals, the only people on earth who still care about the British Royal Family, it turns out that Prince Harry is a fan of President Donald J. Trump.

Thomas Markle, father of Prince Harry’s bride Meghan Markle, revealed on “Good Morning Britain” that the Prince asked him to “give Donald Trump a chance.”

WATCH:

“I sort of disagreed with that, but I still like Harry, that’s his politics, I had my politics,” said Markle.

Markle’s father is a staunch anti-Trumper who said that he “has to apologize to the rest of the world for his president,” during the interview.

“I think Trump’s had his chance 100 times now,” Markle said. “Time’s up. I think the time’s up for Trump”

An amused Piers Morgan, Trump supporter and host of the show, grinned at Markle’s remarks. Morgan continued on to inquire about Markle’s conversations with Prince Harry regarding Brexit, UK’s 2016 vote to leave the European Union.

“This is just a conversation between two guys about politics,” Markle said. “Nothing cast in stone. Just the way you talk.”
