This could get ugly…

Here’s a story involving former Special Counsel Robert Mueller that only has a little to do with Russia, if you can believe that. Apparently, Mueller lied to Congress.

You see, a couple of years ago Mueller met with President Trump at the White House. He was interested in becoming director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation in light of James Comey having been shown the door.

But when Mueller was asked by Congress if he was pursuing the job back in 2017, he said no. He apparently lied. He reportedly was in pursuit.

Multiple administration officials tell Fox News that when Robert Mueller met with President Trump in May of 2017, Mueller was indeed pursuing the open post as the director of the FBI – something the former Russia probe special counsel denied under oath during congressional testimony this summer.

These officials also told Fox News government documents showed Mueller was pursuing the job as a candidate himself.

It came as emails released this month through a Freedom of Information Act request by the conservative group Judicial Watch seemed to indicate Mueller knew there was a real possibility he could be named special counsel if he wasn’t chosen as the next FBI director.

You know how the “Mueller Report” completely vindicated Trump’s 2016 campaign of all collusion with Russia?

Obama-era CIA Director John Brennan doesn’t see it that way.

According to John, the Mueller report that clears Trump actually proves Trump colluded with the Kremlin.

So, figure that one out.

Trump highlighted the fact that he was vindicated:

Enter Brennan:

A more accurate summation: much collusion with Russia yet insufficient evidence to establish criminal conspiracy; extensive evidence of your efforts to obstruct justice, with Congress determining ultimate accountability; many criminal investigations on related activities ongoing.

Minority Owners Of Washington Redskins Looking To Sell Stake In Team

Published

on

Three individual minority owners of the Washington Redskins professional football team are looking to sell off their shares in the team amid controversy over the team’s name. Again. Yes, it seems the Redskins are forever caught in a loop of having to defend their team name from the gaggle of social justice warriors running around the nation screaming and crying about faux systemic racism and crusading for causes like renaming sports teams in order to make themselves feel important and like they have a purpose. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: Businessmen Robert Rothman, Dwight Schar, and Frederick Smith have hired an investment banking firm to conduct the search for potential buyers, which, according to one unnamed source, was happening because they are “not happy being a partner” of majority owner Daniel Snyder, the Washington Post reported. ProFootballTalk first reported that Schar and Smith were trying to sell their share of the team on Sunday. Rothman is chairman and CEO of Black Diamond Capital, a private investment company; Schar is chairman of NVR Inc., one of the largest homebuilder companies in the country; and Smith is the chairman, president, and CEO of FedEx, which has a long-standing partnership with the football franchise. Together, they account for about 40% of the team’s ownership. The remaining stake rests with Snyder, his mother, and his sister. The organization said on Friday that it will conduct a “thorough review” of the team’s name amid new demands that it stops referring to the team as the Redskins, which critics view as being racist and insensitive to Native Americans. Snyder released a statement last Friday saying, “This process allows the team to take into account not only the proud tradition and history of the franchise but also input from our alumni, the organization, sponsors,…

Good News For Trump: SCOTUS Issues Ruling Against ‘Faithless’ Electors

Published

on

The Supreme Court ruled against “faithless electors,” allowing states to require presidential electors to vote for the candidates they are committed to, which is good news for President Trump just ahead of what is sure to be a very tight contest come November. Essentially, this means that electors can’t rebel and refuse to cast their votes for the candidate who won the state, therefore, if Trump wins a state, he gets all of the votes without worrying about losing any. The ruling strips a tool of dissension out of the hands of the left who aren’t above using any and every strategy at their disposal to stop him from having a second term. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: The 538 members of the Electoral College are chosen based on the presidential vote in each state, and they, in turn, elect the president of the United States. States can require these electors to vote for the statewide winner or otherwise follow state laws, the court ruled. Justices decided against four 2016 Electoral College electors seeking to overturn state laws binding them to the presidential nominee to whom they are pledged. In that race, a record seven electors didn’t back the candidate to which they were pledged. A total of 10 electors rebelled last cycle, and seven of those votes counted toward the final tally. The overall results were 304 for Donald Trump, 227 for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, and others seven, instead of Trump 306 to Clinton 232. Four “faithless electors,” one from Colorado and another three from Washington, presented their oral arguments to the Supreme Court last month challenging the laws in 32 states and the District of Columbia. This is a good thing. Whoever wins a state should be entitled to those Electoral College votes. Period.…
