Democrat Slams Jared over Lack of Disclosure: ‘What Is Mr. Kushner Hiding?’

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) issued an angry statement Thursday after White House Senior Advisor Jared Kushner failed to answer questions about a potential conflict of interest regarding a real estate purchase by Kushner’s company.

“These are straightforward questions but we still haven’t received an answer. What is Mr. Kushner hiding?” Lieu said in a statement.

Lieu and 12 other Democrats sent a letter to Kushner this month expressing concerns about reports that 666 Fifth Avenue — a purchase made by Kushner Companies at the height of the real-estate bubble — is in need of “massive cash bailouts” from foreign nationals.

An in-depth article by Bloomberg News, cited in that letter, gave a dour view of Kushner Company’s purchase:

‘Call It Racist’ — In Exclusive Daily Caller Sit Down FCC’s Pai Says His ‘Net Neutrality’ Critics Have Gone Full ‘Spinal Tap’

Ajit Pai expected some blowback for his decision to reverse “net neutrality” rules, but he’s been taken aback by how personal and racial the outcry has been.

“I knew we would get some backlash,” the Federal Communications Commission chairman told The Daily Caller Monday, “both because we live in a politically toxic time in which, if you’re a ‘Spinal Tap’ fan, everything seems to be dialed up to eleven, but also on this particular issue, that people are very passionate.”

“What I hoped, perhaps naively so,” Pai continued, “is that my family would be left out of it. My wife and kids don’t have a role in this debate. They aren’t a part of it, they don’t want to be a part of it, and they shouldn’t be drawn into it.”

In November, pro-net neutrality activists posted signs outside Pai’s Virginia home listing his children by name while calling the government official an “evil” man who “murdered democracy.”

Pai, who is Indian American, also noted that his critics have questioned his racial purity over the issue.

Establishment Republicans Cheer Roy Moore’s Loss in Alabama

Several establishment Republicans cheered as the Alabama Senate Republican candidate Judge Roy Moore lost to his Democratic opponent Doug Jones.

Here are some of the establishment Republicans who praised Roy Moore’s loss in the Alabama Senate race on Tuesday:

National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) Chairman Cory Gardner (R-CO) said in a statement, “Tonight’s results are clear – the people of Alabama deemed Roy Moore unfit to serve in the U.S. Senate. I hope Senator-elect Doug Jones will do the right thing and truly represent Alabama by choosing to vote with the Senate Republican Majority.”

Republicans lost another lawmaker in their slim majority in the Senate. Now the GOP only controls 51 seats in the upper chamber of Congress.

CNN conservative contributor Ana Navarro tweeted on Tuesday night, “Roy Moore lost. Steve Bannon lost. Donald Trump lost. Pedophilia lost. Bigotry lost. Homophobia lost. Racism lost. Doug Jones won. Mitch McConnell won. African-Americans won. Women won. Victims won. Justice won. Morality won. Values won. Sanity won. Decency won. America won.”

Trump Accusers Hold Press Conference With Soros-Funded Group

As sexual harassment and assault accusations tear through celebrity and political circles, three women turned to a Soros-funded film group to once again share their allegations against President Donald Trump.

Trump has repeatedly denied the claims and at a campaign event in Oct, 2016, said at least one of the women “would not be my first choice.”

Rachel Crooks, Samantha Holvey and Jessica Leeds appeared in a Facebook live press conference hosted by Brave New Films (BNF) on Dec. 11, to call for a congressional investigation into Trump’s alleged behavior. Holvey claimed Trump ogled her in a dressing room during the 2006 Miss America pageant, Crooks claimed Trump kissed her on the mouth without her consent in 2005, while Leeds accused Trump of putting his hand up her skirt during a flight in the 1970s.

Brave New Films, a nonprofit film group, received at least $1 million from Soros since 2007. Foundation Directory records showed Soros gave BNF $100,000 in 2007 and $500,000 in 2014. BNF annual reports indicated Soros gave at least $200,000 in 2015 and 2016 as well.

Another liberal group, The Ford Foundation gave Brave New Films at least $4.2 million since 2011.

Democrat Settled Sexual Harassment Case With $220k Of Taxpayer Dollars

American taxpayers shelled out $220,000 to settle sexual harassment accusations against Democratic Florida Rep. Alcee Hastings, a new report reveals.

The Office of Compliance approved the settlement in 2014 after Winsome Packer, a former congressional staffer on a commission chaired by Hastings, accused the Democratic congressman of making sexual advances, touching her and threatening her job, documents obtained by Roll Call reveal.

Packer told Roll Call that she was “blackballed” after the incident.

“As an immigrant who came here with all these ideals, it is like someone just removed all the foundations that I stood on in this country for all these years,” she said. Packer was born in Jamaica, according to Roll Call.

Hastings, who has served in Congress since 1993, is the latest congressman to be caught up in a sexual harassment scandal.

Democratic Michigan Rep. John Conyers resigned on Tuesday following a flood of sexual harassment allegations against him. Sworn affidavits signed by four of Conyers’ former staffer describe him as a sexual predator who demanded sexual favors from his female staffers and abused taxpayer resources.

DOJ Launches Investigation Into Planned Parenthood

The Department of Justice has launched an investigation into Planned Parenthood’s dealings in fetal tissue parts, Fox News reports.

The DOJ requested documents from a Senate committee that investigated allegations Planned Parenthood illegally profited from the sale of the parts of aborted babies. The Center for Medical Progress exposed the abortion giant’s practice of harvesting and distributing the parts in a series of explosive videos published in 2015.

“The Department of Justice appreciates the offer of assistance in obtaining these materials, and would like to request the Committee provide unredacted copies of records contained in the report, in order to further the Department’s ability to conduct a thorough and comprehensive assessment of that report based on the full range of information available,” the DOJ’s Assistant Attorney General for Legislative Affairs, Stephen Boyd, said in a letter obtained by Fox News.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley requested that Planned Parenthood undergo DOJ and FBI investigation in a December 2016 committee report: “The report documents the failure of the Department of Justice, across multiple administrations, to enforce the law that bans the buying and selling of human fetal tissue,” Grassley wrote. “It also documents substantial evidence suggesting that the specific entities involved in the recent controversy, and/or individuals employed by those entities, may have violated that law.”

The FBI’s Desperate Scramble to Cover Up Clinton/Lynch Meeting

More than a year later, it still strikes us as one of the most flagrant violations of the public trust that we’ve ever seen. Only days before the Justice Department was scheduled to announce their findings in the Hillary Clinton email investigation, there was Attorney General Loretta Lynch cavorting with the suspect’s HUSBAND, in private, away from the cameras, on an airport tarmac in Arizona. For more than twenty minutes, the two disappeared from the daylight, only to emerge later and act as though it was ridiculous for anyone to suggest that something untoward had happened. No, no, what are you guys talking about? We were just catching up on old times, chatting about our grandchildren, and tossing a beanbag back and forth, dontcha know? C’mon, y’all.

A few days later, we found out – surprise! – that the DOJ would not be pressing charges against Hillary.

Lynch wouldn’t go as far as to recuse herself from the case, but she did take the extraordinary step of saying she would abide by the FBI Director’s recommendation. That opened the window for James Comey to announce his findings in that infamous briefing, which he used to not only let Hillary off the hook, but also to explain all the reasons why she should NOT be let off the hook. Strange stuff. The kind of speech you might make if you were being pressured to let a criminal go free, one might imagine.

Of course, the Clinton/Lynch meeting was dramatically under-reported by the media; most of Hillary’s supporters have probably forgotten that it ever happened. But we haven’t forgotten. And neither has Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch, whose organization has been trying for months to get the true story of what happened on that plane out to the public. For a long time, their search for records relating to that meeting was in vain. The FBI gave them the cold shoulder, insisting there were no such records. This ultimately led Judicial Watch to sue the Bureau – multiple times – to finally get what they were looking for.

Judicial Watch Lawsuit Would Force FBI To Release FBI Agent’s Anti-Trump Messages

A lawsuit filed by watchdog organization Judicial Watch would force the FBI to release the disparaging messages about President Donald Trump that a top FBI agent on the Russia investigation exchanged with an FBI lawyer on the same investigation.

Those messages forced Special Counsel Robert Mueller to kick the investigator, Peter Strzok, off of the Russia investigation, after the Department of Justice’s inspector general brought them to Mueller’s attention. Strzok played a leading role in both the Russia investigation as well as the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.

The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board argued that the biased messages are just the latest indicator that Mueller lacks credibility and should be replaced, while former FBI Assistant Director Chris Swecker said the revelation “casts a cloud over much of the Clinton investigation.”

The messages, which reportedly were exchanged during the presidential campaign, “should be responsive” to a lawsuit that Judicial Watch filed with the Department of Justice in October 2016, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton told The Daily Caller.

In other words, the messages are the type of records Judicial Watch’s lawsuit seeks to recover, and they’re expected to be included in the batch of documents produced by the DOJ.

House Settled Secret Lawsuit After Democrat Rep Meeks Fired Staffer For Reporting Sexual Assault Related to Donor

The House secretly settled a lawsuit after Democrat Rep. Gregory Meeks fired a staffer in retaliation to her reporting sexual assault by a campaign contributor.

Investigative reporter for the Daily Caller, Luke Rosiak tweeted Monday, “Tick Tock. Stay tuned for news of another secret House settlement, related to an allegation of sexual assault.”

"The Office of House Employment Counsel brokered a settlement in 2006 over allegations that Rep. Gregory Meeks fired a staffer in retaliation for reporting that she was sexually assaulted at a business tied to a campaign contributor, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.

Andrea Payne, then a congressional aide in Meeks’ Queens office, filed a complaint with the Office of Compliance, and Meeks fired her weeks later. He admitted that the cause of her termination did not have to do with the quality of Payne’s work.

“This is an action to recover for damages sustained by plaintiff when Representative Meeks violated her Constitutional rights by retaliating against her, and ultimately terminating her employment, because of her sexual assault lawsuit,” Payne’s attorneys wrote.

Documents reveal the FBI is nothing more than a criminal enterprise that must be stopped

If ever Americans needed a president like Donald J. Trump, now is the time, because only a chief executive not owned by or beholden to the stinky, disgusting D.C. swamp can fix what used to be one of the world’s most competent, effective law enforcement agencies: The FBI.

New documents have emerged that further prove just how politicized and compromised the bureau became under President Obama, one of the most scandal-ridden presidents most Americans never knew about, thanks to the equally disgusting (and biased) “mainstream” media.

According to 29 pages of documents obtained by Judicial Watch, a government watchdog group that has doggedly pursued Obama-era malfeasance, FBI agents on the ground when former President Bill Clinton met then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch on the tarmac of an Arizona airport were more worried about covering it up than the appearance of impropriety caused by the meeting itself.

For you see, if you remember, the “impromptu” meeting between the AG and the former president just happened to take place as the Department of Justice was conducting a criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton, over her illegal mishandling of classified documents via her unsecured private home email server.

Steve King Pledges to Block ‘Every Form’ of Amnesty for Illegal Aliens in Kate Steinle’s Honor

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) says he will do his part in honoring 32-year-old Kate Steinle — whose illegal alien killer was acquitted of her murder — by blocking “every form” of amnesty that the GOP-led Congress attempts to push.

After five-time deportee and seven-time felon illegal alien Jose Garcia Zarate, also known as Juan Francisco López-Sánchez, was not convicted of the murder of Steinle — despite previously admitting to shooting and killing the woman while she was walking on a pier with her father — King called the decision “Sickening!”

“The illegal alien who, no one disagrees, killed Kate Steinle is found NOT guilty in sanctuary city, San Francisco. Sickening!” King wrote.

King also vowed to oppose any amnesty for illegal aliens that the Congress may attempt to pass by the end of the year.

Hard Drive Tied to Wasserman Schultz Is Central To Imran Awan Case

A court date for a former Democratic IT aide has been postponed by more than a month after the defendant’s attorney, a former Hillary Clinton aide, said he’s seeking to block prosecutors from using evidence that appears to include a government laptop tied to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

“The government has been in discussions with counsel for the defendants regarding complex discovery issues and other legal issues in this case, in particular issues surrounding claims of attorney-client privilege being raised by defendant Imran Awan,” court papers filed Tuesday say.

“Last night, counsel for both defendants indicated that they need additional time to review and analyze these issues, along with the voluminous discovery the government provided in this case,” according to the documents. “The government consents to this request.”

Chris Gowen, Awan’s attorney, said at the last hearing: “We do expect there being an attorney-client privilege issue in this case… What occurred is a backpack from my client was found, he was trying to get a better signal, there was a note that said attorney client privilege and a hard drive. We feel very strongly about this.”

A Capitol Police report shows that the backpack contained the following items:

Secret Donors Are Financing Leandra English Lawsuit Against Trump

Secret donors are financing the lawsuit against President Donald Trump and White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney over who runs the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).

Deepak Gupta, the lead lawyer of a boutique law firm that launched its suit on behalf of CFPB acting director Leandra English, confirmed in a CNBC interview that English is not paying for his hourly fees, but rather unknown anonymous donors are.

Gupta refused to name who is funding the lawsuit, making it difficult to ascertain the motives, intentions, or any special interests of those underwriting the case.

The D.C. lawyer appeared caught off guard when CNBC hosts asked who was financing his effort. He stumbled over his words in his first answer and said some form of unidentified “structure” was being put in place to accept funds from anonymous donors.

“Well, uh, it’s, it’s not, um, Miss, um English, um, ah. There are ethics lawyers that we’ve consulted, and we have a structure set up that is with ethics rules and, um, we’ll and we’ll be talking about that once we have that,” he told CNBC.

Dem Congressman Arranged Secret “Severance Package” For Staffer Over Misconduct Claims

Washington Times reports:

Rep. Raul M. Grijalva quietly arranged a “severance package” in 2015 for one of his top staffers who threatened a lawsuit claiming the Arizona Democrat was frequently drunk and created a hostile workplace environment, revealing yet another way that lawmakers can use taxpayer dollars to hide their misbehavior on Capitol Hill.

While the Office of Compliance has been the focus of outrage on Capitol Hill for hush-money payouts in sexual harassment cases, the Grijalva payout points to another office that lawmakers can use to sweep accusations under the rug with taxpayer-funded settlements negotiated by the House Employment Counsel, which acts as the attorney for all House offices.

The employment counsel negotiated a deal for taxpayers to give $48,395 — five additional months’ salary — to the female aide, who left her job after three months. She didn’t pursue the hostile workplace complaint further.

“On the advice of House Employment Counsel, I provided a severance package to a former employee who resigned. The severance did not involve the Office of Compliance and at no time was any allegation of sexual harassment made, and no sexual harassment occurred,” Rep. Grijalva stated to The Washington Times.

“Under the terms of the agreement, had there been an allegation of sexual harassment, the employee would have been free to report it. Regrettably, for me to provide any further details on this matter would violate the agreement,” Grijalva added.

Ex-Cop Making Roy Moore Harassment Claim Is Leftist, Anti-Moore Opponent

Few witnesses could be more damning against a purported sexual abuser of four decades ago than an ex-cop from that era. That is, unless the ex-cop has a hidden agenda. Like the former Gadsden, Alabama, cop who claims police were told in the 1970s to ensure that now-GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore stayed away from teen cheerleaders — and who actually turns out to be a left-wing Moore opponent.

Faye Gary created quite a stir last week with her comments, though she confessed to MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell that the claims about Judge Moore were “just rumors” and that “we never got a complaint on it.”

What didn’t come out during her media interview — in which she appeared sober and non-partisan — is that she has an ideological axe to grind with the judge.

After confirming with the City of Gadsden Personnel Office that Gary actually had served as a police officer, I contacted her via a Facebook message. The passion and anger quickly emerged, with Gary making clear she objected to Moore’s stances on homosexuality, Islam, and the display of the Ten Commandments.

BANNON: ‘One Thing Has Forever Broken the Democrat Party’

The Democrat Party is in shambles after losing over one-thousand seats around the country under former President Obama. President Trump’s stunning victory last November made the Democrat Party’s situation even more precarious. Yet, according to former Chief White House Strategist Steve Bannon, both events are recoverable — what’s not — is the degree to which identity politics has infected the Party.

Stephen K. Bannon believes that the Democratic Party’s obsession with identity politics will ultimately backfire against them. In fact, he believes this has broken the party to such a degree that it will never recover.

Bannon, with the whiteboard in his office and his eagerness to check off Trump campaign promises as accomplished, took the brunt of the blame for the administration moving too quickly. But he says the uproar had its upside: It helped create “the resistance” that Bannon believes thoroughly delegitimizes the Democratic Party with average voters it needs to win elections. He claimed he knew the outrage was coming, and that the Left had fallen into a trap. “The Left bit on it, and created the resistance, and it blew up, and now it’s part of the political movement,” Bannon said. “It’s what’s broken the Democratic Party.”

“Bannon’s belief that the Democratic Party’s addiction to divisive identity politics may succeed in stirring up much noise on the fringes, but that this very tactic will work against them among the very same minority groups they are using to cause an uprising,” writes Bannon: Always the Rebel author Keith Koffler.

DoJ: House Dem May Face Wire Fraud, Obstruction, Conspiracy Charges From 2012 Payoff

After an avalanche of perversion, this old-fashioned political corruption scandal might seem relatively refreshing. An FBI probe into campaign-finance corruption has circled ever closer to Rep. Bob Brady, the Pennsylvania Democrat who got served with a search warrant earlier this month. The Department of Justice has Brady in its targets over a scheme to pay off a fellow Democrat to get him out of a primary — a scheme that already has one man pleading guilty to corruption:

SEE ALSO: Ethics sirens times two: New allegations emerge against Franken, Conyers

The F.B.I. is investigating whether Representative Robert A. Brady of Pennsylvania, the top Democrat on the House Administration Committee, illegally paid a political opponent $90,000 to drop out of a 2012 primary race, court documents show. …

According to the court papers, Mr. Moore, who is cooperating with the government, told law enforcement officials that he attended a meeting in February 2012 with Mr. Brady arranged by W. Wilson Goode Sr., the former mayor of Philadelphia. At that meeting, Mr. Moore said, Mr. Brady agreed to pay $90,000 toward Mr. Moore’s campaign debts, in exchange for Mr. Moore’s agreement to drop out of the race.

“In that conversation, Brady and Moore agreed and understood that the payment from Brady’s campaign to Moore’s campaign would be disguised, and the deception would include hiding at least some of the Bob Brady for Congress campaign funds as the purchase of the aforementioned poll,” the affidavit stated.

Sessions DOJ Caught Downplaying Evidence Linking Obama And Hillary To Uranium-One Scandal

The evidence comes amid the secret FBI informant behind the Uranium-One deal breaking his silence.

Last week, William Campbell came forward as the secret FBI informant, saying he is eager to testify because of his “concerns about Russia’s activities in the United States, but declined to comment further,” reports Reuters.

“I have worked with the Justice Department undercover for several years, and documentation relating to Uranium One and political influence does exist, and I have it,” Campbell told Reuters.

“FBI informant Campbell, acting as a consultant trying to help Rosatom overcome political opposition to the Uranium One deal, gathered evidence for six years, and, according to the more than 5,000 pages of documents from the counterintelligence investigation, there are a number of evidentiary links between corrupt Russians, President Obama, and Hillary Clinton,” reports Zerohedge.

Here’s how Sessions and Rosenstein attempted to downplay proof linking Obama and Clinton to the Uranium-One scandal.

Top NSA Whistleblower Claims ‘Russiagate’ a Fake to Increase War-Spending

William Binney is the mathematician and Russia-specialist, who quit the NSA in 2001 as its global Technical Director for geopolitical analysis, because of the lying about, and manipulations of, intelligence, that he saw — distortions of intelligence by the George W. Bush Administration — in order to ‘justify’ systematic, massive, and all-encompassing, Government snooping into all Americans’ private electronic communications. His, and some colleagues’, efforts to get the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Defense to investigate the matter, produced FBI raids into their homes, and seizures of their computers, so as to remove incriminating evidence they might have against higher-ups. According to Binney, NSA’s Director, General Michael Hayden, had vetoed in August 2001 a far less intrusive and more effective system of signals-intelligence collection and analysis, which, if it had been in place, might have enabled the 9/11 attacks to be blocked — a more effective system that would have been less expensive, less intrusive, and not violated Americans’ Constitutional rights. Hayden went on to head the CIA, until the end of George W. Bush’s Presidency. Afterward, General Hayden joined the Chertoff Group and other military-industrial-complex contractors of the U.S. Federal Government. There were no such rewards for any of the whistleblowers.

Binney viewed Hillary Clinton as continuing George W. Bush’s neoconservatism, and so — though reluctantly — voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 election.

On November 15th, an interview of Binney was published at the Washingtonsblog news-site, titled “How to Instantly Prove (Or Disprove) Russian Hacking of U.S. Election”, in which Binney provides technical details to explain why he strongly believes that the Democratic Party’s allegations — the allegations which say that Russia was the source of the leaks of information from the computers of the Democratic National Committee and from Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager John Podesta — are nothing more than intentional concoctions and distortions, which are backed and promoted by America’s military-industrial complex, whose stock-values rise accordingly with the lies.
