Andrew C. McCarthy – The Rice email outlines Obama’s strategy to withhold key details of the Russia investigation. On her way out the White House door and out of her job as national-security adviser, Susan Rice writes an email-to-self. Except it’s not really an email-to-self. It is quite consciously an email for the record.
Her term having ended 15 minutes before, Rice was technically back in private life, where private people have private email accounts — even notepads if they want to scratch out a reminder the old-fashioned way. Yet, for at least a few more minutes, Rice still had access to her government email account. She could still generate an official record. That’s what she wanted her brief email to be: the dispositive memorialization of a meeting she was worried about — a meeting that had happened over two weeks earlier, at which, of course, President Obama insisted that everything be done “by the book.”
Funny, though: The “by the book” thing about contemporaneous memos is that they are, well, contemporaneous — made at or immediately after the event they undertake to memorialize. They’re written while things are as fresh as they will ever be in one’s mind, before subsequent events motivate the writer to spin a decision, rather than faithfully record it.

Tyler Durden – Stocks are red. Trey Gowdy is abruptly retiring from Congress. Everybody is laughing at what looks like drool dribbling from the edge of Joe Kennedy’s mouth during his rebuttal to last night’s State of the Union.
And along comes Reuters, dropping a bombshell headline that, if accurate, could shift the narrative of the multiple investigations involving Russia and obstruction of justice.
Reuters quoted Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intel Committee, who believes the contents of the four-page memo about allegedly egregious FBI abuses of FISA set for public release in the next several days, could lead to the firing of Special Counsel Bob Mueller, or more likely Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein.

Barack Obama loyalists entrenched in the deep state have plagued the Trump administration.
They have selectively leaked classified information in order to thwart Trump’s agenda.
But thanks to a big announcement by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, their sabotage-campaign may come to a screeching halt.
Sessions announced the Department of Justice would aggressively pursue leak investigations and prosecute leakers.
“Attorney General Jeff Sessions says the Justice Department is aggressively investigating recent leaks of classified information and wants to put “some people in jail” over the disclosures. Continue reading “Jeff Sessions Announces Plans To Curb Deep State Leakers”
American Liberty Report – A former assistant FBI director, James Kallstrom, who worked for the agency during the Clinton administration attacked the criminal intelligence community leaks, calling them “disgusting and disgraceful.”
He likened those responsible for direct attempts to undermine the President as a “fifth column.” He said they are embedded in the White House and intelligence agencies and are working against President Trump directly and shamelessly.
Those of us who looked on Trump’s early campaign fairly from the very beginning quickly became suspicious of the overarching attempts by the media to defame him. Many people who support Trump today did not think much of him at first. It was the slow progression of seeing incident after incident of very skewed reporting in support of DNC instantiated violence at Trump rallies and Hillary’s obvious attempts to steal votes that got so many more on Trump’s side.
One alternative media reporter said, “What got me on Trump’s voter rolls once and for all was when it was leaked that Hillary Clinton shouted at one of her staffers saying, ‘if that son of a b—- wins, we all hang from nooses.’” Continue reading “Former Assist. FBI Director: “Embedded Fifth Column Working Against Trump””
Patrick Buchanan – Devin Nunes just set the cat down among the pigeons.
Two days after FBI Director James Comey assured us there was no truth to President Trump’s tweet about being wiretapped by Barack Obama, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee said Trump may have had more than just a small point.
The U.S. intelligence community, says Nunes, during surveillance of legitimate targets, picked up the names of Trump transition officials during surveillance of targets, “unmasked” their identity, and spread their names around, virtually assuring they would be leaked.
If true, this has the look and smell of a conspiracy to sabotage the Trump presidency, before it began.
Comey readily confirmed there was no evidence to back up the Trump tweet. But when it came to electronic surveillance of Trump and his campaign, Comey, somehow, could not comment on that.
Which raises the question: What is the real scandal here?
Is it that Russians hacked the DNC and John Podesta’s emails and handed them off to WikiLeaks? We have heard that since June.

Paul Joseph Watson – Former President Barack Obama is leading the charge to “oust” Donald Trump from the presidency by either forcing his resignation or through his impeachment, according to a close family friend.
The Daily Mail reports that Obama is being aided in his crusade by ex-senior advisor Valerie Jarrett, who has moved into Obama’s nerve center just two miles from the White House to help him build momentum behind the “mounting insurgency” against Trump.
On Tuesday, former Attorney General Eric Holder also revealed that Obama was close to returning as a full time political operative.
“It’s coming. He’s coming,” Holder told reporters. “And he’s ready to roll.”
Obama was reportedly weary after eight years in office and had to be convinced to lead the insurgency against Trump but has now, “Come to embrace his role as the leader of the opposition against Trump, whose policies he loathes and whose presidency he considers illegitimate,” according to the report.
The family source told the newspaper that Obama’s ultimate goal was to force Trump to step down, either through resignation or impeachment, and that the former president is “dismayed at the way Trump is tearing down his legacy—ObamaCare, the social safety net and the welcome mat for refugees he put in place.”
