On Tuesday, another Republican congressman went on Fox News with claims they’ve uncovered the existence of a “secret society” within the Department of Justice.
Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security committee, told the network he has an “informant” who corroborated the “secret society” claims, made by Reps. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) and John Ratcliffe (R-TX) on air the night before.
“We have an informant that’s talking about a group who are holding secret meetings off-site,” Johnson said. “There is so much smoke here, so much suspicion.”
“Is there anything more about that?” host Bret Baier asked him.
“Nope, we have to dig into that,” the senator replied.
Johnson’s flashy admission followed by a claim that he doesn’t have any more information to provide in public echoes that of Gowdy and Ratcliffe, the latter of which admitted that although infamous FBI agents Peter Stzrok and Lisa Page texted each other about a “secret society,” he’s not sure it “actually happened.”

‘A wild, disgusting, ugly ride’: MSNBC analyst warns 2020 will be ‘desperate’ Trump running to avoid arrest
During a panel discussion with political pundits, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace warned that we're about to enter one of worst campaigns of our lives.
Washington Post reporter Phil Rucker noted that President Donald Trump's Orlando kickoff was essentially a repeat of his 2016 kickoff, with the same policies and same promises.
"It felt like déjà vu for both of us who covered the 2016 campaign because it was the same 'populist' messages, same grievances, same lines, even and the same response with the same crowd. And the same logo," Rucker said.
But it was MoveOn communications chief Karine Jean-Pierre that warned of a horrific election season as Trump runs a race not only for his presidency but for his life.
Universal says artists owed ‘transparency’ over devastating fire
The world's largest music group Universal owes artists "transparency" over revelations that a 2008 fire devoured some 500,000 recordings in its care, its chief said in an internal memo.
Universal Music Group CEO and chairman Lucian Grainge released the note to staff Tuesday following a bombshell New York Times magazine investigation that found the blaze tore through a warehouse housing irreplaceable master recordings spanning decades.
The work of stars including Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, Bing Crosby, Ella Fitzgerald, Sonny and Cher, Joni Mitchell, Eric Clapton, Elton John, Janet Jackson, Nirvana and Tupac was reportedly engulfed in the flames.
Entire MSNBC panel unleashes on Judiciary chair demanding he get Mueller to testify ASAP
MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace unleashed on Democrats for refusing to step up and fight back against President Donald Trump.
She was joined by former Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) and Frank Figliuzzi the former Assistant Director for Counterintelligence at the FBI, both of whom demanded to know what Democrats were thinking.
"It's time -- it's past time for [Robert Mueller] to talk about his report," Figliuzzi said, wondering why officials didn't call him to testify as soon as possible. "And as much of that testimony needs to be an open hearing, not behind closed doors."
That's when Wallace dropped the truth bomb that is going to infuriate Democrats.
