Michael Flynn Jr. issues another dark prophecy: ‘Comey is going down’

Published

on

Earlier this week, Michael Flynn Jr.—son of US Army Lieutenant General Michael Flynn—mysteriously warned “You’re all going down” on Twitter.

On Wednesday, Flynn Jr. issued a more specific prophecy of doom, this time directed at former-FBI director James Comey.

“Comey is going down, and he doesn’t even know it yet. Sad….  [sic]” he posted to Twitter.

The warning came in response to Comey trying to explain that informants are an integral part of the FBI’s work.

“Facts matter. The FBI’s use of Confidential Human Sources (the actual term) is tightly regulated and essential to protecting the country,” he wrote. “Attacks on the FBI and lying about its work will do lasting damage to our country. How will Republicans explain this to their grandchildren?”

It’s worth noting that the FBI does have a long history of abusing its power in the agency’s use of informants, from COINTELPRO to more recent investigations into terror cases, where informants appear to have instigated criminal conspiracies unlikely to have come to fruition on their own.

So far, there doesn’t appear to be credible evidence that the FBI abused its power in investigating the Trump campaign.

Melania Trump scorched by columnist for standing by president’s Thunberg bullying: ‘Indefensible’

Published

In a piece for the Washington Post, columnist Karen Tumulty called out first lady Melania Trump for her statement defending her husband's bullying of 16-year-old environmental activist Greta Thunberg in a fit of jealousy after she was selected Time Magazine's Person of the Year.

Responding to a statement from the White House that stated, “BeBest is the First Lady’s initiative, and she will continue to use it to do all she can to help children. It is no secret that the President and First Lady often communicate differently — as most married couples do. Their son is not an activist who travels the globe giving speeches. He is a 13-year-old who wants and deserves privacy,” Tumulty wasn't having it.

BUSTED: Devin Nunes is hiding how he’s paying for all his frivolous lawsuits — which could land him in more trouble

Published

on

On Saturday, the Fresno Bee dived into a lingering question: How does Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) pay for all the lawsuits he is filing against journalists, satirists, and political critics?

"Nunes, R-Tulare, has filed lawsuits against Twitter, anonymous social media users known as Devin Nunes' Cow and Devin Nunes' Mom, a Republican political strategist, media companies, journalists, progressive watchdog groups, a political research firm that worked for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and a retired farmer in Nunes’ own district," noted the Bee.

These lawsuits were mainly filed in Virginia — a state with very loose laws against so-called "SLAPP suits," or meritless lawsuits intended to drown people in legal expenses in retaliation for expressing political opinions. Nunes was assisted in these suits by Steven Biss, a Virginia attorney, and yet except for the suit against the retired farmer, there is no clear record in Nunes' FEC reports of how he paid for the suits.

On Saturday, President Donald Trump brought up Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in a bizarre rant against the "Radical Left, Do Nothing Dems" and his anger over the direction of the impeachment process:

After watching the disgraceful way that a wonderful man, @BrettKavanaugh, was treated by the Democrats, and now seeing first hand how these same Radical Left, Do Nothing Dems are treating the whole Impeachment Hoax, I understand why so many Dems are voting Republican!
