Raids signal ‘something bigger’ in Baltimore mayor probe: expert
[NYPOST] The raid by federal agents on the home of embattled Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh could signal she’s facing "something bigger" than the scandal over her shady dealings with a kids book series she authored, a lawyer who defended another Charm City pol said.

The Democrat was already under investigation by the state prosecutor’s office for securing a lucrative book sales deal with the University of Maryland Medical System. The no-contract arrangement for the "Healthy Holly" series netted Pugh more than $500,000 while she sat on the institution’s board, officials said.

The FBI and IRS
...the Internal Revenue Service; that office of the United States government that collects taxes and persecutes the regime's political enemies...
descended on seven locations associated with Pugh on Thursday morning, including her home, where they hauled out boxes of the books and documents, the Baltimore Sun reported.

"The books might just be a shiny object. My guess is there’s something bigger," said Arnold W. Weiner, a lawyer who defended a previous mayor, Sheila Dixon, against misconduct charges in office, the outlet reported.

The raid was the first indication that Pugh was being probed by the feds. Experts said the agencies are likely looking for potential tax violations, such as whether she reported her income from the book series.

"When money is involved, there is potential for tax crimes. And they’re easier to prove," David Jaros, a University of Baltimore Law School professor, told the Baltimore Sun.

Pugh, 69, has been on an indefinite leave of absence from office ‐ citing her health ‐ since the state probe was launched earlier this month.

Very different. Roger Stone wasn't a public official with the ability to approve hundreds of millions of dollars in city contracts. She may spent the rest of her life in prison.

‘Criminal Indictments Are Coming For Obama/Clinton Associates’
Ulululululululululululululu *gasp* ululululululululu!
[DCWHISPERS] Normally such a claim would cause more than a few eye rolls and shakes of the head as for a very long time, the upper echelons of the Deep State continued to dance just beyond the realm of real legal accountability for their nefarious actions. Former U.S. prosecutor Joe diGenova is a proven reliable source, though, and so if he says indictments are coming, he’s likely right.

The question then is if someone like John Brennan will take all the heat or if he will choose to point at those who approved his actions‐namely figures like Perennial Presidential Campaigner Hillary Crooked Hillary Clinton
... former first lady, former secretary of state, former presidential candidate, Conqueror of Benghazi, Heroine of Tuzla, formerly described by her supporters as the smartest woman in the world, usually described by the rest of us as The Thing That Wouldn't Go Away...
, Barack Obama
How much damage could he do in four years?... Eight, then...
, and Valerie Jarrett
...reliably Democrat Chicago, aka The Windy City or Mobtown
... home of Al Capone, a succession of Daleys, Barak Obama, and Rahm Emmanuel,...
political hack, now senior advisor to President B.O....

The situation in D.C. is getting VERY interesting these days...

#5  Need I say it aloud one more time? There are TWO kinds of Law in the United States. One sort of Law for the Hillarys and the Bosses. And another sort of Law for the Peons

Democrats are largely above the Law. After all, when was the last time Comey saw the jail from the inside. The FBI and the Democratic Prarty felt comfortable doing what they did, saw nothing stopping them from spying on the Trump Campaign. Used the Steele Dossier to do precisely that with procuring Fisa warrants. And was NEVER going to be called on account of it. Hillary spent $10 million for the Steele Dossier.

You will Never see Justice applied to Hillary and the FBI. You WILL do as you are told and leave your brains to what the MSMedia TELL you to think.
Get in Line and bend over.
Yes, yes, Hemingway — whyever is it that you are so fond of the idea of us bending over? So no, you needn’t say it again. But being boring has never held you back before.

Trump renews claim that Mueller probe was attempted ‘coup’
[NYPOST] President Trump renewed his conspiratorial claim that his administration was subjected to a "coup" attempt because of the probes launched into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and his campaign’s ties to Kremlin-link individuals.

"They tried for a coup, it didn’t work out so well," Trump said Friday during a speech before the NRA convention in Indianapolis.

He called the FBI officials who launched the investigation that led to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe "bad apples." Mueller’s report cleared Trump of collusion but came to no conclusion on obstruction.

"We didn’t need a gun for that one, did I?," Trump joked to hooting gun enthusiasts.

"We’ve been looking at things that you would not have believed possible in our country, corruption at the highest level. A disgrace," he claimed. "Spying, surveillance, trying for an overthrow, and we caught them."

Trump Says He Will Declassify FBI’s Russia Probe Documents, ‘And Much More’
Ooooooooooohhhhhhhhh...
[DAILYCALLER] President Donald Trump
...New York real estate developer, described by Dems as illiterate, racist, misogynistic, and what ever other unpleasant descriptions they can think of, elected by the rest of us as 45th President of the United States...
committed Thursday to declassifying a slew of records related to the Russia probe "and much more."

Trump said in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity that he was "glad" he waited to declassify the documents until after the end of the special counsel’s investigation.

"I thought that maybe they would obstruct if I did it early, and I think I was right," Trump said.

Trump has for months considered releasing portions of a classified surveillance warrant application granted in June 2017 against Carter Page, the former Trump campaign adviser. He has also considered declassifying FBI notes of interviews with Bruce Ohr, the Justice Department official who served as dossier author Remington Christopher Steele’s handler for months after the 2016 election.

Trump ordered all of the documents declassified on Sept. 17, 2018, but reversed course four days later. Trump said at the time that he decided not to declassify the documents after meeting with the Justice Department.

"Everything’s going to be declassified and more, much more than what you just mentioned," Trump told Hannity in his first on-camera interview since the release of the special counsel’s Russia report.

Byron York: When did Mueller know there was no collusion?
[WASHINGTONEXAMINER] Trump-Russia special counsel Robert Mueller was appointed May 17, 2017. Twenty-two months later, on March 22, 2019, Mueller sent his report to the Justice Department.

Some special counsel investigations have taken longer; it is the nature of such probes to drag on and on. But why did Mueller need nearly two years to determine whether the Trump campaign and Russia conspired or coordinated to fix the 2016 election?

He didn't, it appears. In the wake of the release of Mueller's report, there are indications that special counsel prosecutors mostly knew by the end of 2017, and certainly by a few months later, that the evidence would not establish that conspiracy or coordination -- or collusion, to use the popular term -- had taken place. Mueller clearly spent a lot of time on the other half of his report -- trying to establish that Trump obstructed justice -- but on the most explosive and consequential allegation of the Trump-Russia affair, the conspiracy allegation, the Mueller investigation was essentially over long before it officially ended.

I also agree that he knew very quickly there was no collusion.

Most of the two years was about James Comey and "obstruction"

I believe Mueller decided the leaks from his team were becoming too obvious and he shut it down.

Obviously believe it or not, based on Rosenstein's recent speech that he had lost the Assistant AG support.

CBO Report: 1.4 Million Lost Health Insurance Since 2016 ‐ And Obamacare Is To Blame
[IssuesNInsisghts] The number of uninsured climbed by 1.4 million from 2016 to 2018, according to a report out last week from the Congressional Budget Office. Naturally, this led those on the left to blame the Trump administration for its Obamacare "sabotage."

But the data in that report-which was released on the same day the Mueller report came out and largely ignored -tells an entirely different story.

All of the increase in the uninsured over the past two years ‐ all of it - is the result of the massive rate increases Obamacare's mandates and regulations caused. According to the Health and Human Services Dept., premiums in the individual insurance market doubled from 2013 to 2017. They shot up again in 2018.

For those eligible for Obamacare subsidies, the rate increases were meaningless. The amount they had to pay didn't change much, and in many cases went down.

But for the millions of middle-class Americans who buy insurance coverage on the individual market and aren't eligible for Obamacare subsidies, the result has been financially devastating.

The CBO report shows the impact, plain as day.


From 2016 to 2018, the number of people getting subsidized coverage through an Obamacare exchange increased by 100,000. The number enrolled through Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion climbed by 700,000.

And, thanks to the booming job market under President Trump, the number of people getting coverage through work climbed by 2.2 million over those two years.

But the number of people in the unsubsidized individual insurance market? From 2015 to 2018, it plunged from 9.7 million down to 6.2 million ‐ a 36% decrease.

Before Obamacare went into effect, there were more than 10 million people buying insurance on their own, without any government subsidies, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.

Yet, incredibly, when Sarah Kliff at Vox.com (the self-proclaimed "explanatory news" site) looked at the same report, she tried to blame the Trump administration for the increase in the uninsured.

"America’s uninsured rate is rising under President Trump, whose administration has passed new rules that make it more difficult to enroll in coverage," she begins.

Kliff goes on to say that "much of that increase (in the uninsured) is concentrated in the Medicaid program, where the Trump administration has approved new rules like work requirements that can make it more difficult for low-income Americans to enroll in the program."

That is completely false. Those work requirements Kliff points to apply only to those enrolled through the Obamacare-expanded Medicaid program. And only a handful of states have even tried to implement them. What’s more, enrollment in the Obamacare-expanded part of Medicaid is up by 700,000 since 2016. That’s a 6% increase.

As the CBO data make clear, enrollment in the regular Medicaid program declined by 1.1 million over those years. But this had nothing to do with any work requirements, and was more likely because these people didn’t need to be on the dole anymore.

So, in short, while Obamacare succeeded in making millions of people dependent on the government for health insurance, it’s done so at the expense of middle-class families who were specifically promised relief from high insurance costs.

In this light, the Trump administration’s attempt to make truly affordable options available to these middle-class families ‐ through short-term plans and association health plans ‐ looks more like humanitarian relief effort than an attempt to "sabotage" Obamacare.
