Devin Nunes calling for a ‘task force’ to investigate officials and activists who exposed Russian election meddling

Published

on

California Republican Devin Nunes is doubling down on efforts to go after the people who investigated Donald Trump’s collusion with Russia in the 2016 campaign, the Washington Times reports.

As head of the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, Nunes wants to target the people who were involved in the Steele Dossier which exposed Trump’s dealings with Russian intelligence and helped lead to the revelation that Donald Trump Jr. colluded with Russian intelligence agents to try to get dirt on Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Nunes is asking two other committees in the Republican-lead congress to call Obama administration officials, FBI agents and outside political activists to offer public testimony. He ha a list of 42 people including FBI agents, Justice Department and State Department officials and anti-Trump activists with whom they communicated.

Among the people the Times says Nunes wants to target are Glenn Simpson, who founded Fusion GPS, the firm that wrote the bombshell Steele dossier.

He also wants to investigate Robby Mook, Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager who is now a CNN analyst. Mook was one of the first Clinton allies to blame Russia as behind the hacking of Democratic Party computers.

‘Names are going to start coming out’: New report says more elites will be exposed in the Epstein case — and ‘DC is on edge’

Published

on

Will other powerful people — presumably men — get taken down as a result of the sex trafficking case against Jeffrey Epstein?

That’s the hope of many closer followers of the story, but it’s far from clear what, if any, fallout there will be. Epstein’s connections to Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump have raised suspicions about potential evidence of their wrongdoing, such suspicions remain unproven. Alan Dershowitz has already faced accusations of being involved in Epstein’s crimes, though he denies the charge vigorously.

But a new report from Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman says that “DC is on edge” over the Epstein case, and any elites who have run in his circles could be involved. Dozens of girls, if not more, are believed to be involved in his alleged sex trafficking, and lawyers for some of the women who have accused Epstein are strongly suggesting that other high-profile figures will be implicated.

‘It’s so un-American’: Internet scorches Trump supporters for racist chants of ‘Send her back!’

Published

on

The ignoble highlight of President Donald Trump's rally in Greenville, North Carolina on Wednesday was when his fans doubled down on his racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color and targeted Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), chanting "Send her back! Send her back!"

Political commentators of all stripes were gobsmacked by the crowd's naked racism — and buried them in condemnation:

The crowd at Trump’s rally chanting “send her back” after the President viciously and dishonestly attacked Ilhan Omar is one of the most chilling and horrifying things I’ve ever seen in politics.

Jeffrey Epstein wasn’t even a competent investor: report

Published

on

There can be no doubt that high-powered hedge fund manager Jeffrey Epstein would rather the public know him for his prominence and success as an investor than for the allegations of child sex trafficking, for which he has now been indicted and faces life in prison. And there has for years been mystique surrounding Epstein's business — his wealth fund is so exclusive that it reportedly requires a billion dollars up front from clients.

But according to the Dow Jones' periodical Barron's, Epstein may not even be good at that.
