‘Extraordinary’ Strzok removal shows FBI agents in crosshairs from IG probe

Peter Strzok’s abrupt removal from his FBI office this week signaled that the Justice Department inspector general’s work already is leading to consequences for bureau officials ensnared in various probes — with potentially more repercussions to come.  Strzok, who worked on both the Clinton email and Russia probes, was escorted from the FBI on Tuesday, following a referral for further investigation from DOJ IG Michael Horowitz. The watchdog, as part of his Clinton case review, found that Strzok and four other FBI employees sent “hostile” anti-Trump messages on bureau devices. The FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility is expected to further investigate the findings against the five FBI employees. “A referral certainly is very serious and they will investigate the accusatio...

Melania Trump’s ‘I don’t care’ jacket causes stir on border visit

First lady Melania Trump’s visit to a Texas facility housing migrant children separated from their parents threatened to be overshadowed Thursday by a jacket she wore bearing the words: “I really don’t care, do u?” The first lady was pictured wearing the jacket as she boarded a flight to the border at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland. The Daily Mail reported that the army green anorak-style jacket came from Spain-based retailer Zara and could be bought for $39. It was not available online as of Thursday afternoon. The green jacket reportedly retailed for $39.

Immigration fight is no picnic: Reps brawl, Dems jeer and cops search for Trump-accosting intern

President Trump issued a big executive order Wednesday. He canceled the congressional picnic. Considering the contretemps on Capitol Hill the past few days, it’s no surprise Trump nixed the fete scheduled for the South Lawn of the White House tonight. “It didn’t feel exactly right to me,” said the president. The decision comes amid the firestorm over separating migrant children from their parents. Trump noted that lawmakers were struggling with immigration legislation on Capitol Hill. “We’ll make it another time when things are going extremely well,” said the president. Trump’s decision to postpone the picnic disappointed lawmakers. The picnic is always a bipartisan affair where lawmakers of both parties flock to the White House with their families. The administration transforms the ...

Democrat ‘welcomes’ VP Pence to Philadelphia with one-finger salute

A Philadelphia legislator stirred controversy for a social media post of him flipping off Vice President Mike Pence.  (Facebook) A Pennsylvania state lawmaker posted a mocking “welcome” to Vice President Mike Pence on Tuesday, accompanied by a stiff middle-finger salute. The post by state Rep. Brian Sims, a Democrat from Philadelphia, came as Pence was in town for a fundraising event for the Republican Governors Association, PhillyVoice reported. The event drew scores of protesters.  Sims, 39, who is Pennsylvania’s first openly gay state legislator, apparently saw an opportunity to please his base of supporters.  “OFFICIAL WELCOME: @MikePenceVP let me be the first to officially welcome you to the City of Brotherly Love and to my District!” Sims’ Facebook and Twitter post read. “We’re...

Democrats slam Trump’s executive order for detaining families ‘indefinitely’

Democrats expressed concerns Wednesday about President Trump’s executive order, which will allow parents who have crossed the U.S. border illegally to remain with their children. The move, some Democrats argued, simply detains illegal immigrants “indefinitely.” The order Trump signed allows children to stay in detention with their parents for an extended period of time. It does not, however, end the “zero-tolerance” policy that criminally prosecutes adults entering the country without proper documentation. TRUMP SIGNS EXECUTIVE ORDER TO STOP FAMILY SEPARATIONS AT BORDER Trump’s order came after he and other officials repeatedly said only Congress had the power to stop children and their parents from being separated. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., tweeted We...

Marc Thiessen: The overlooked bombshell of the IG report

When the Justice Department inspector general’s report revealed that former FBI director James B. Comey had used a personal email account to conduct official business, Hillary Clinton claimed vindication. “But my emails,” she tweeted. Yes, Madam Secretary, your emails. In fact, the overlooked bombshell of the report is the inspector general’s confirmation that classified information contained in Clinton’s emails was in fact compromised by foreign intelligence services, and that Clinton had recklessly emailed President Barack Obama using her unsecured personal email from the territory of a hostile foreign adversary. Before the report was released, we knew from Comey’s July 2016 statement that Clinton’s private emails included “seven e-mail cha...

Seattle City Hall expanding to house homeless after ‘head tax’ flop

Seattle lawmakers, after being pressured by business leaders to repeal a controversial tax meant to address the city’s homeless problem, have a brand new plan — turn City Hall’s lobby into a homeless shelter. The Seattle City Council voted unanimously Monday to approve a plan expanding the number of housing and shelter units by 25 percent. That includes an extra 100 spaces at City Hall. “When people have access to shelter, they’re more likely to take advantage of services like behavioral health, hygiene services, and employment support, and then move to permanent housing,” Mayor Jenny Durkan said in a statement. “We all have to contribute to solutions to this crisis, which is why we’re opening City Hall [to] more people each night.” KOMO News reports that the ...

Comey hits back at Clinton, won’t apologize to her over email probe

James Comey fired back this week at Hillary Clinton after the former secretary of state cited the Justice Department inspector general report on her email case to challenge the premise of the investigation itself.  Clinton did so in a terse, snarky tweet following the release of the nearly 600-page report, which accused the former FBI director of defying the chain of command during the email probe. It also said he, too, used a personal email account for some government business.  “But my emails,” Clinton tweeted, in response to a reporter tweet about Comey’s use of a “gmail” account — a slap at the outrage over her private email server and the FBI probe itself.  But during an interview in Berlin this week, Comey was asked whether he would apologize to Clinton — and refused. He ...

Video shows DHS boss Kirstjen Nielsen being heckled, harassed at DC restaurant

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill, Jan. 16, 2018.  (Associated Press) Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was accosted by an angry socialist mob and forced out of a Mexican restaurant in Washington on Tuesday evening amid backlash over the federal government’s “zero-tolerance” stand at the U.S.-Mexico border. The video, posted by the Metro DC Democratic Socialists of America, shows a group of protesters harassing Nielsen at MXDC Cocina Mexicana, a restaurant near the White House. “Shame!,” one protester shouts at Nielsen. “If kids don’t eat in peace, you don’t eat in peace,” another yells. “Kirstjen Nielsen, you’re a villain!
