As first reported yesterday, Trump is likely going to pull security clearances from several former Obama administration appointees. The appointees, including Andrew McCabe, James Clapper, John Brennan, Susan Rice, and others have been controversial figures. Clapper and Brennan have accused the President of treason in editorial capacities. McCabe was fired from the FBI for improper interactions with the press. Others on the list, like James Comey, have claimed that their security privileges are already revoked.
Indicted Russian operative Maria Butina was part of private meetings with Obama officials in 2015. Butina met with Federal Reserve vice chairman Stanley Fischer, Treasury Undersecretary Nathan Sheets, and Russian Central Bank deputy governor Alexander Torshin. Butina has been indicted as a Russian spy who sought to influence US politics and elections.
In New York they are literally letting the criminally insane out to vote for Governor Cuomo. Cuomo has handed out pardons to thousands of former prisoners in time for the election, including 77 sexual predators who had been committed to psychiatric hospitals after serving their prison time. The pardon gives them the right to vote, according to the New York Daily News.
The deadest horse in political history, the Trump Russia collusion story, continues to be mercilessly beaten by Democrats. But it’s over. Trey Gowdy gave the best summation of the death of the Trump Russia investigation on Sunday, telling Fox host Bret Baier that if there was actually any evidence found against Trump in this two year investigation, Rep. Adam Schiff would have leaked it by now. The Democrats can pray for an obstruction charge, but the Bill Clinton precedent suggests that’s not going anywhere. Also, anyone who Trump might have tried to obstruct, such as Comey, McCabe, or Rosenstein, has already proven themselves to be extremely biased and unreliable as a witness. Stick a fork in this one. Yup, another fork.
