To what end will the “Russia Collusion” issue continue? Do we not trust our Senate Intelligence Committee? Or do we only mistrust our oversight regarding Donald Trump? We are supposed to trust the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs regarding Hillary Clinton’s emails. We are supposed to trust the House Select Committee on Benghazi. We are supposed to trust the FBI that there is no evidence of IRS targeting conservative groups even though a settlement was paid.
Even the most ardent Trump hater has to admit that there is a point where we say that the people charged with investigating find nothing (or say they find nothing) so we have to move on. And, hey, we’ve been in your shoes, we understand.
Former top FBI lawyer James Baker, in closed-door testimony to Congress, detailed alleged discussions among senior officials at the Justice Department about invoking the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from office, claiming he was told Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said two Trump Cabinet officials were “ready to support” such an effort.
The testimony was delivered last fall to the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees. Fox News has confirmed portions of the transcript. It provides additional insight into discussions that have returned to the spotlight in Washington as fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe revisits the matter during interviews promoting his forthcoming book.—More…

YO, RINOS, Trump haters, political opportunists, Judases, and publicity hounds: Rep. Maxine Waters is calling you out to rabble-rousing street duty this weekend, which includes tomorrow’s President’s Day.
You can always hide behind a mask to keep your face hidden from Open Border-worried constituents.
Obviously spurred on by the high number of Republicans who said they’d vote against President Donald Trump’s call for a National Emergency on the border wall, Waters wants Republicans to take to the streets hoping that anarchy can force the Impeachment of the beleaguered president.
WASHINGTON—Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe will be on “60 Minutes” Sunday night, and you can expect to see stories on him and his new book for days. You can also expect McCabe to portray himself as an upright lawman who stood up to President Donald Trump out of fear that the Russians may have helped carry Trump all the way to the White House.
There is one thing you should know about McCabe.—More….

“Chicago Police believe Jussie Smollett paid two men to orchestrate the assault. The sources tell CNN that the two men are now cooperating fully with law enforcement,” tweeted CNN crime and justice reporter Shimon Prokupecz Saturday evening.

Kidnappers in the Mexican coastal state of Veracruz dumped the body of a woman in a vacant lot inside of a garbage bag after her husband could not pay a ransom of 4 million pesos ($51,912 USD).

President Trump’s Proclamation of a National Emergency on the Southern Border has ensured that the consequences of the illegal entry of drugs, criminals and foreigners through that porous border will now be owned by the Congress and not the President—guaranteeing him certain victory in the 2020 Presidential elections.
The rush to test the legal validity of Trump’s Proclamation in the Courts was clearly in Trump’s mind even before he had signed the final papers:
In these difficult times, we are tempted to “close ourselves in ourselves, in our fragile human security, in the circle of our loved ones, in our reassuring routine,” the pope said. But this withdrawal into ourselves is a “sign of defeat” that “increases our fear of others — strangers, the marginalized, foreigners — who are also the Lord’s privileged ones.”
“This is particularly evident today, in the face of the arrival of migrants and refugees who knock on our door in search of protection, security, and a better future,” Francis said.—More….
