Fifth Column
Rep. Meadows Files Criminal Referral Against Nellie Ohr After New Emails to DOJ About Russian Collusion Surface
[GatewayPundit] Nellie Ohr, wife of twice-demoted DOJ official Bruce Ohr was criminally referred to the Justice Department Wednesday by House Republicans after hundreds of new emails surfaced, contradicting her previous statements to Congress.

A series of "Hi Honey" emails from Nellie Ohr to her top DOJ husband Bruce Ohr surfaced and suggested Hillary-funded oppo research was being funneled into the DOJ during the 2016 election through a backchannel between the happily married Ohr couple.

Nellie Ohr previously told Congress that during the 2016 election, she worked for Fusion GPS to help them connect Trump and Manafort to Russian organized crime.

New Nellie Ohr emails discovered through a FOIA lawsuit show evidence to the contrary.

Via John Solomon of The Hill:

Now, 339 pages of emails from her private account to Department of Justice (DOJ) email accounts, have been released under a Freedom of Information Act request by the conservative legal group Judicial Watch. And they are raising concerns among Republicans in Congress, who filed a criminal referral with the Justice Department on Wednesday night.

They clearly show that Ohr sent reams of open-source intelligence to her husband, Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr, and on some occasions to at least three DOJ prosecutors: Lisa Holtyn, Ivana Nizich and Joseph Wheatley.

The contents tracked corruption developments in Russia and Ukraine, including intelligence affecting Russian figures she told Congress she had tried to connect to Trump or Manafort.

"Hi Honey, if you ever get a moment you might find the penultimate article interesting ‐ especially the summary in the final paragraph," Nellie Ohr emailed her husband on July 6, 2016, in one typical communication. The article and paragraph she flagged suggested that Trump was a Putin stooge: "If Putin wanted to concoct the ideal candidate to service his purposes, his laboratory creation would look like Donald Trump." Nellie Ohr bolded that key sentence for apparent emphasis.

Earlier Wednesday, Congressman Jim Jordan told Saagar Enjeti of The Hill that Rep. Mark Meadows was "working to finalize" a criminal referral of Nellie Ohr. "We’ll see if that happens.

#2  Once it gets started, the onion will peel fast. Thank goodness. I doubt the left can do much about it. There was serious pushback even before Trump was elected. All I can say is there must have been many in D.C. with their hands in the cookie jar and a lot of skeletons in their closets.

Ralph Peters Says Mueller Report Is Not the End: Why Is Trump ‘So Slavishly Subordinate' to Putin?
[Mediaite] RUSH EXCERPT:

PETERSless: "Obstruction of justice. And as far as the Russian contacts go, there's some things the Mueller report didn't cover, because they were just outside of his lane. The fundamental question for me remains, why the the president of the United States, Donald J. Trump, so slavishly subordinate to Vladimir Putin? Why will he do his best to block congressionally mandated sanctions. Why did the platform change in 2016 to hurt Ukraine and help Russia. Why does he have to meet behind doors with Vladimir Putin, so on and so on. The report is not the end. It's a milestone, but there's much more to come."
Derangement, CNN style.

Ralph Peters (born April 19, 1952) is a retired United States Army lieutenant colonel and author. Peters appeared frequently as an analyst on Fox News until March 2018 when he resigned, calling the network a "propaganda machine" for the Trump administration and accused the network of "wittingly harming our system of government for profit.

#9  GIGO... It does seem like a case where one, or several, flawed premises can cause an entirely logical framework to wander off into La-La Land. Ralph Peters seems to be acting like a computer trying to "divide by zero" over and over again hoping to get a rational answer this time.

And by the way: As an intelligence professional, I can tell you that the Steele dossier rings true--that's how the Russians do things.

I understand being an upstanding professional, and therefore trusting that your colleagues in the profession are also upstanding. But really — how much of a dupe must he now feel, poor man. That's exactly how I felt when I learned that Global Warming was about manipulating science for political ends, and I had not devoted my life nor derived my identity from the thing.

's (D-Mass.) support in the Democratic primary growing, offering some new hope for her presidential campaign.

Quinnipiac University's national survey of the 2020 presidential race released Tuesday showed Warren as the top choice for 12 percent of the Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters asked.

Biden's son got 50K/month from Ukraine oligarch?

#2  $50K/month for 5 years. $600K/yr or a cool $3 mil for 5 yrs. Biden has a reputation of being creepy and too touchy-feely. The funneling of money into the family's coffers, his stoking of racial flames and division and his lying about most things for his benefit will knock him out of being a viable candidate.

#3  $50K/month is peanuts to the ruling class.

In an interview last month on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight, Schweizer explained, “Joe Biden was the Obama administration’s point-person on policy towards Ukraine. He steered $1.8 billion in aid to that government and while he was doing so, his son got a sweetheart deal with this energy company that — we’ve been able to trace over just a 14-month period — paid $3.1 million into an account where Hunter Biden was getting paid.”

“Suffice to say, Hunter Biden has no background in Ukraine,” Schweizer noted. “He has no background in energy policy. There’s really no legitimate explanation as to why he got this deal with this energy company, other than the fact his father was responsible for doling out money in Ukraine itself.”

Including how to leave a trail wide enough for a blind termite to follow. That excludes the Dhimmicrap media... And the Bidens are counting on the later.

Ilhan Omar: ‘This Is Not Going to Be the Country of White People’
[BREITBART] Black Lives Matter and other anti-Trump groups held a rally on the grounds of the Capitol on Tuesday to call for 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...
to be censured for what he said about Rep. Ilhan Omar
Somali-American Dem representative from Minnesota. She is apparently married to her brother and may be her own grandmaw...
’s (D-MN) controversial statement that "somebody did something" on 9-11.

People chanted ’"Hands off Ilhan" and in a series of speeches blamed the president and Republicans for the rise of "white supremacy masked as white nationalism."

Omar spoke at the event in praise of her homeland of Somalia and said the president and his Party are responsible for recent attacks on synagogues and mosques.

"At this moment, the occupant of the White House and his allies are doing everything that they can to distance themselves and misinform the public from the monsters that they created that is [sic] terrorizing the Jewish community and the Moslem community," Omar said.

Omar said she is criticized because she is a Moslem woman.

"I also happen to be a refugee and immigrant from what they call one of the shithole countries," Omar said, mocking the president for his alleged comments about war-torn countries like Somalia that drive their people out.

"The reality is that shithole country raised a very proud, dignified person," Omar said. "Our circumstances may not always be perfect but that doesn’t lessen our humanity and I am not in the business of defending mine."

Omar was not as complimentary of the United States.

"This is not going to be the country of the xenophobics," Omar said. "This is not going to be the country of white people."

"This is not going to be the country of the few," Omar said. "This is the country of the many."

"This is the country that was founded on the history of Native American genocide, on the backs of black slaves but also by immigrants colonists," Omar said.

‘It’s Over... We Have to Stop Using the Criminal Justice Process as a Political Weapon’
[THEGATEWAYPUNDIT] Stolen Valor Senator Richard "Da Nang Dick" Blumenthal (D-CT) tried his hardest to intimidate Bill Barr ‐ it didn’t work.

Blumenthal, who lied about his Vietnam War service, had the gall to tell Barr "history will judge you harshly."

Bill Barr was unfazed and reminded Blumenthal that he, as the Attorney General is in charge of the Justice Department, and in no way was he going to recuse himself from any of the ongoing investigations.

At the end of the questioning from Blumenthal, Barr schooled the lying Stolen Valor Senator on the job of the DOJ, which is to establish whether there was a crime. Barr told Da Nang Dick to get over the Mueller investigation because it’s over and his department determined there was no crime.

"We have to stop using the criminal justice process as a political weapon," Barr said.

If they want to politicize DOJ as a weapon, they'll regret the day someone on the other side has no problem using it on them. They'll whine of course.

#2  Using the criminal justice system as a political weapon? It was honed to a fine art during the last administration. It would seem that malfeasance of office and abuse of power are already illegal. Maybe it's just a matter of having the will to prosecute.

'Democracy Dollars': Gillibrand's plan to give every voter $600 to donate to campaigns
[NBCNEWS] Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., unveiled a plan on Wednesday to give every voter up to $600 in what she calls "Democracy Dollars" that they can donate to federal candidates for office.
Free money! Hooray!
In an exclusive interview with NBC News to discuss the roll out of her first major 2020 policy initiative, Gillibrand said her "Clean Elections Plan" would help reduce the influence of big money in politics.

"If you want to accomplish anything that the American people want us to accomplish ‐ whether it's healthcare as a right, better public schools, better economy ‐ you have to take on the greed and corruption that determine everything in Washington," she said.

Under Gillibrand's plan, every eligible voter could register for vouchers to donate up to $100 in a primary election and $100 in a general election each cycle, either all at once or in $10 increments to one or more candidates over time. Each participant would get a separate $200 pool for House, Senate and presidential contests for a total maximum donation of $600 for those federal offices.

There would be strings attached for both donors and candidates. The money could go only to elections in the donor's state, although they could be used for House candidates outside the voter's district.

Politicians would face much tighter limits on donations. To be eligible to receive "Democracy Dollars," a candidate would have to voluntarily agree to forgo any contributions larger than $200 per donor. That’s a big drop from the current maximum of $2,800 per primary cycle and $2,800 for the general election.

SICK! Dem Lawmaker on Abortion: "Some Kids Are Unwanted So You Kill Them Now or Kill Them Later" (VIDEO)
[GP] Gross. The Democrat Party has lost its mind.

They’ve gone from promoting abortion to killing kids?

This week Alabama State Rep. John Rogers (D-Birmingham) argued in support of abortion saying,

"Some kids are unwanted, so you kill them now or you kill them later. You bring them in the world unwanted, unloved, you send them to the electric chair. So, you kill them now or you kill them later."

This is barbaric. What the hell happened to this crazed party?
