“Republican congressional investigators expect a potential “smoking gun” establishing that the Obama administration spied on the Trump transition team, and possibly the president-elect himself, will be produced to the House Intelligence Committee this week, a source told Fox News.
Classified intelligence showing incidental collection of Trump team communications, purportedly seen by committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and described by him in vague terms at a bombshell Wednesday afternoon news conference, came from multiple sources, Capitol Hill sources told Fox News. The intelligence corroborated information about surveillance of the Trump team that was known to Nunes, sources said, even before President Trump accused his predecessor of having wiretappedhim in a series of now-infamous tweets posted on March 4.
The intelligence is said to leave no doubt the Obama administration, in its closing days, was using the cover of legitimate surveillance on foreign targets to spy on President-elect Trump, according to sources.”
Not so much any more huh?
Thought they were out to catch all those “Bad guys?”
“The White House on Tuesday night preemptively released some details of President Trump’s income and taxes he paid in 2005 as MSNBC teased leaked documents ahead of an evening broadcast.
Trump reported $150 million in income and paid $38 million in federal taxes, the White House said in a statement.
MSNBC host Rachel Maddow had teased Tuesday evening that she had Trump’s Form 1040 from 2005. Fellow anchor Lawrence O’Donnell tweeted before her show, “This is the night we’ve been waiting for.”
After apparently being warned by the network about the impending story, the White House quickly released the major numbers itself shortly before the broadcast — slamming MSNBC in the process.
“You know you are desperate for ratings when you are willing to violate the law to push a story about two pages of tax returns from over a decade ago,” the statement read. “Despite this substantial income figure and tax paid, it is totally illegal to steal and publish tax returns. The dishonest media can continue to make this part of their agenda, while the President will focus on his, which includes tax reform that will benefit all Americans.”
What a dumb ass
She droned on for 23 minutes before releasing the info
Then she got Trumped
I think the media should get used to it
Chris Cuomo said this morning that Mike Pence was making the rounds of all the news shows
That is all of the news shows except for CNN
What do you expect when you are hacks and openly campaign for the opposition?
Do you really think that you can defame someone like TRump for over a year and then have him forget about it?
Haters Gonna’ hate
Hacks are Gonna’ hack……
“A Chinese-American businessman at the center of a Clinton campaign finance scandal secretly filmed a tell-all video as an ‘insurance policy’ – because he feared being murdered.
In footage provided exclusively to DailyMail.com, Johnny Chung spills details on how he illegally funneled money from Chinese officials to Bill Clinton’s 1996 re-election bid.
The Chinese-American Clinton fundraiser recorded the ‘elaborate videotaped testimony’ while in hiding in 2000.
He smuggled it to trusted friends and family with instructions to release it to the media in the event of his untimely death because he believed he was at risk of being assassinated.
Chung is believed to still be alive and living in China.
The video was obtained by author and historian David Wead for his new book Game of Thorns, which traces Hillary Clinton’s unsuccessful 2016 campaign and the Chinese government’s long-running operation to buy political influence in Washington. “
In the never-before-released footage, Chung described how he feared for his life after he publicly admitted to funneling money from Chinese officials to President Bill Clinton’s 1996 reelection campaign.
He also claimed Democrats pressured him to stay silent about his dealings with the Clintons and said the FBI tried to enlist him in a sting against a top Chinese general at a Los Angeles airport.
The video comes amid renewed interest in foreign influence in Washington, as some members of President Donald Trump’s team have been scrutinized for their associations with Russian officials.
The video grew out of a controversy in the mid-1990s when evidence surfaced that Chinese officials were pouring hundreds of thousands into then president Bill Clinton’s reelection campaign through American straw donors.
“A key lawmaker working on an Obamacare replacement insisted Thursday that the healthcare law will be repealed, despite widening skepticism among even Republicans.
“Yeah, it’s gonna happen,” Rep. Mike Burgess, R-Texas, said at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday afternoon.
But Burgess didn’t have an answer when pressed on when Congress will vote to repeal and replace the healthcare law — although he did say it will happen before the next CPAC.
“We will get it done,” he responded simply.
Burgess heads the health subcommittee of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, one of two House committees working on a replacement to the healthcare law. The plan is to use a budget reconciliation bill to repeal and replace much of the law, but Republicans are still struggling to nail down its details and ensure it will have enough GOP support to pass.
President Trump has promised he will roll out an Obamacare alternative next month, and House Speaker Paul Ryan plans to hold committee markups on the plan, too.
But there’s broad skepticism that Republicans will be able to rally around one plan. Former House Speaker John Boehner predicted Thursday that repeal and replace is “not going to happen.”
But they could pass vote after vote while Obama was there to veto it
These scumbags have nothing else in mind than re-election
Right now they are afraid to jump on Trump’s bandwagon because it might crash
