Giuliani: ‘I Never Said There Was No Collusion’—I Said Trump Didn’t Collude

On Wednesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Cuomo Primetime,” Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani stated, “I never said there was no collusion between the campaign, or between people in the campaign.” Giuliani said that he and the president have denied that the president colluded.

Anchor Chris Cuomo stated, “Mr. Mayor, false reporting is saying that nobody in the campaign had any contacts with Russia. False reporting is saying that there has been no suggestion of any kind of collusion between the campaign and any Russians. Because now you have Paul Manafort giving poll data that winds up leading to this coincidence –.”— More…

Gun Rights Groups: We Object to William Barr Being Confirmed as AG

The Firearms Policy Coalition on Wednesday sent a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) stating their opposition to William Barr being confirmed as Attorney General. Their biggest objection to Barr is over his previously stated support for Extreme Risk Protection Orders (ERPO), commonly referred to as “red flag laws,” and his belief that “there is room for reasonable regulation” of the Second Amendment.

Specifically, Barr’s 1991 confirmation hearing is what gun groups have cited as reasons for objecting to his current confirmation hearings:—More…

New Revelation that Ohr Warned FBI Brass About Steele Dossier Before Initial FISA Warrant

According to a new report out by award-winning investigative journalist John Solomon, former top DOJ official, Bruce Ohr warned FBI and DOJ officials that Steele’s dossier was connected to Hillary Clinton and cautioned them it may be biased — weeks BEFORE they obtained a FISA warrant on Carter Page.

Bruce Ohr’s testimony to congressional investigators destroys Rep. Adam Schiff’s efforts to downplay Ohr’s role and interactions with Christopher Steele. Ohr’s testimony also pokes holes in Schiff’s claims that Bruce Ohr didn’t brief the FBI on his contacts with Steele and the dossier until AFTER the election and AFTER the initial FISA warrant was obtained on Carter Page.—More….

Exclusive– Marsha Blackburn: Sundar Pichai ‘Less than Truthful’ about Manipulating

Breitbart News senior tech reporter Allum Bokhari revealed in an exclusive report on Wednesday that, despite Pichai’s sworn testimony, Google and YouTube use “blacklists” for “controversial YouTube queries” which contain a list of search terms the Silicon Valley giant considers sensitive. In one instance, YouTube downranked pro-life videos from its top ten search results for “abortion.” Further, Bokhari revealed that Google employs “huge teams” dedicated to the manual intervention of its search results, which serves as an apparent contradiction to Pichai’s sworn testimony.

Pichai testified under oath in December before the House Judiciary Committee and assured lawmakers that Google does not “manually intervene on any particular search result.”—More…

Karen Pence, wife of Vice President Mike Pence, started at a job this week teaching art at Immanuel Christian School in Northern Virginia. It’s not a school where everyone is welcome.

In a “parent agreement” posted online, the school says it will refuse admission to students who participate in or condone homosexual activity, HuffPost learned through an investigation into discriminatory admissions policies. The 2018 employment application also makes candidates sign a pledge not to engage in homosexual activity or violate the “unique roles of male and female.” —More…

The largest collection of breached data in history has been discovered, comprising more than 770m email addresses and passwords posted to a popular hacking forum in mid-December.

The 87GB data dump was discovered by the security researcher Troy Hunt, who runs the Have I Been Pwned breach-notification service. Hunt, who called the upload Collection #1, said it was probably “made up of many different individual data breaches from literally thousands of different sources”, rather than representing a single hack of a very large service.—More…

Kobach: Democrats Finally Acknowledge That Voter Fraud Exists

Not so long ago, prominent Democrats were insisting that voter fraud did not exist in the United States. Others conceded that it existed, but that it was so rare as to be irrelevant to the outcome of elections. Liberal media sources like U.S. News scoffed that looking for voter fraud was like going on a “unicorn hunt.”

Notably, in early 2017 then-House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi mocked President Trump’s claim that voter fraud occurred in the 2016 presidential election. She called his focus on voter fraud “really strange,” adding, “I frankly feel very sad for the president making this claim.” She asked Republicans to join her in declaring that “we have confidence in our system and that we always respect the results of the election.”— MORE….

In Syria, U.S. armed forces have been fighting the Islamic State or ISIS, a terrorist group that once controlled significant territory and resources, but the administration insists that ISIS has been defeated. As such, Trump is moving to withdraw all U.S. forces from Syria.

In Afghanistan, U.S. troops have been at war there for nearly 18 years, since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, making it the longest war in U.S. history.
