As Barr Prepares Next ‘Russia’ Investigation, FBI’s Mystery Man Turns Heads

Now comes the true test of Barr’s commitment to “transparency”, as he begins to investigate the real reason behind the RussiaGate conspiracy.

Attorney General Bill Barr is currently on my television screen, hand to the temple, answering Congress’s combative questions in his signature, droll manner.

Yesterday’s testimony by Barr was similarly staged, with lawmakers growing frustrated with the AG’s unwillingness to answer several questions, specifically in regard to the Robert Mueller probe of the “RussiaGate” theory.

This has led Barr into territory he likely wishes he would have avoided, with congressional figureheads now demanding that he begin to investigate the origins of the entire “RussiaGate” conspiracy – something that will surely reflect poorly on the Barack Obama administration’s action in the run-up to the 2016 election.

One mysterious man in particular has come under increasing scrutiny in this fight, and the American people deserve answers.

The Justice Department’s internal watchdog reportedly is scrutinizing the role of an FBI informant who contacted members of the Trump campaign during the 2016 election, as part of a broader review of the early stages of the Russia investigation.

The New York Times reported that Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz is looking into informant Stefan Halper’s work during the Russia probe, as well as his work with the FBI prior to the start of that probe.

Halper, an American professor who reportedly is deeply connected with British and American intelligence agencies, has been widely reported as a confidential source for the FBI during the bureau’s original investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. That official counterintelligence operation was opened by then-senior agent Peter Strzok, who has since been fired from the bureau.

Halper’s fingerprints are all over the “RussiaGate” fable.

During the 2016 campaign, Halper contacted several members of the Trump campaign, including former foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos and former aide Carter Page. Page also was the subject of several Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants during the campaign — which is an issue at the heart of the IG’s investigation. Republicans, including President Trump, have alleged misconduct in the bureau and Justice Department’s handling of those FISA warrants.

At the end of the day, the American people only want transparency in their government.  After all, sunlight is the best disinfectant.

Now it will be up to Barr and the DOJ to give it to them…or face the consequences of an angry electorate.

Despite Major Pushback, Bernie Sanders Sticks with Felon Voting Stance

Bernie Sanders is sticking to his guns on this one, despite the immediate and harsh feedback that he has received from Americans on the issue.

Bernie Sanders, the de facto frontrunner in the current 2020 democratic field, may have exposed his own achilles heel on television earlier this week. Sanders, a democratic socialist by nature, Independent Senator officially, and a democratic Presidential candidate out of necessity, has long been on the outside looking in at mainstream politics.  Now, thanks to the pure and unadulterated insanity of the world we live in, he has risen to the left’s pile of possible presidents; his views no longer so far to the left…now that the center is moving toward him. But don’t let a desensitized democratic constituency make you believe that Bernie wouldn’t still have some bizarre, left-field ideas out there to shock us with.  Sanders himself, during a CNN town hall event this week, stated his belief that incarcerated felons should have the right to vote.  When pressed by CNN host Chris Cuomo, who asked if the Boston Marathon Bomber should be allowed to vote, Bernie upheld his belief to a stunned crowd. The media fallout was almost immediate, and has been continuing ever since. Bernie Sanders, for his part, is shrugging this aside and now tripling-down on his belief at a “She The People” event. “And I was told this was a terrible idea despite the fact that in Canada and in countries all over the world — why did I say that?” Sanders said. “I said that because the right to vote is essential. If you are a citizen, you have the right to vote.” Then Sanders compared that right to voting rights connection to race and gender. “And that is a right we must protect because we know the history of this country. We know that women didn’t have the right to vote,” Sanders said. “We know that African Americans didn’t have the rights…

CONFIRMED: Beto Said He Did Not Flee 1998 DWI, Officers At the Scene Say He’s Lying

BUSTED!

It was reported during his failed Senate run last year that former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (TX) fled the scene of a DWI over two decades ago. Beto has denied this happened. However, officers at the scene of the crime say Beto did, in fact, attempt to flee. Busted. From Texas Tribune: The former police officer who arrested Beto O’Rourke for driving drunk in 1998, along with the sergeant who signed the incident report, both say they believe now what they reported at the time: that O’Rourke tried to leave the scene of the wreck he caused. O’Rourke admits he was intoxicated and says there is no justification for his actions, but he has denied that he tried to flee. […] Neither the investigating officer, Richard Carrera, nor his former supervisor, Gary Hargrove, specifically recalls the events of that night more than 20 years ago. But both of the former Anthony Police Department officers told The Texas Tribune they have no doubt the report they compiled and signed is accurate. A Beto spokesman noted, “Beto’s DWI is something he has long publicly and openly addressed over the last 20 years at town halls, on the debate stage, during interviews and in Op-Eds, calling it a serious mistake for which there is no excuse. This has been widely and repeatedly reported on.” LOOK (zoom in): Beto O’Rourke, truth teller? Not so much. In that respect, he actually fits in quite swimmingly with the other 2,385 Democrat presidential candidates. Check this out… From Daily Wire: Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke made five false statements in an attack on President Donald Trump this week when he was confronted over why he compared the president to the Third Reich. O’Rourke noted, “I compared the rhetoric that the president has employed to the rhetoric…
