Right! But we had to have 4 years of Benghazi/email hearings and an FBI investigation leading up to the election of 2016. What a travesty.

I don't mind them investigating Trump as long as they are investigating Clinton/Obama/Lynch/Holder/Comey... otherwise it's political instead of about "rule of law". No average citizen would be given a pass on the margin between "extreme carelessness" and "gross negligence" concerning top secret Intel and correspondence. Again... trump admin gets blank subpoenas and raids... Obama's gets blanket immunities and passes. That's blind justice to you?

http://www.wbko.com/content/news/GOP-reps-refer-Comey-Clinton-and-others-for-criminal-investigation-480166443.html

WASHINGTON (WBKO) – Several Republican members of Congress sent a criminal referral Wednesday to the FBI and Justice Department seeking an investigation into possible violations of law by former FBI Director James Comey, Hillary Clinton, former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, recently fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, FBI Agent Peter Strzok and FBI Counsel Lisa Page.

The referral by Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., and 10 other lawmakers drew attention to perceived differences in the way investigations have been conducted between political parties saying in part:

“We write to refer the following individuals for investigation of potential violation(s) of federal statutes. In doing so, we are especially mindful of dissimilar degrees of zealousness that has marked the investigations into Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the presidential campaign of Donald Trump, respectively.”

The Hillary Clinton part of the referral discussed the payment from the Clinton Campaign to Fusion GPS, which led to the unsubstantiated Steele Dossier that has been believed to be the basis for a FISA warrant used to surveil members of the Trump campaign.

The referral mentioned several possible violations of federal law by James Comey, including perjury following his testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, where he stated he made the decision not to recommend criminal charges related to Clinton’s email handling after her interview on July 2. However, the Washington Post reported a draft statement on the decision was circulated by Comey on May 2.

Concerns were raised regarding former Attorney General Loretta Lynch allegedly threatening reprisal against a former FBI informant who tried to come forward in 2016 with insight into the Uranium One Deal. Critics allege possible corruption surrounding the 2010 process under which the Obama Administration approved the sale of U.S. uranium mining facilities to Russia’s state atomic energy company.

The New York Times reported several of the people involved in the deal had contributed millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation. Bill Clinton was also paid $500,000 by a Russian investment bank tied to the transaction for a speech in Moscow.

Mentioned among potential violations by Andrew McCabe was perjury stemming from the “lack of candor” led to his firing.

Concerns Peter Strzok and Lisa Page were in regard to alleged interference with the investigation into Hillary Clinton and her use of a personal email server.

Despite rampant speculation that Cohen will flip on Trump, my guess is that he's already been promised a pardon for his silence. The only hope is that Schneiderman will charge him with something.

Sources: Mueller has evidence Cohen was in Prague in 2016, confirming part of dossier

The Justice Department special counsel has evidence that Donald Trump’s personal lawyer and confidant, Michael Cohen, secretly made a late-summer trip to Prague during the 2016 presidential campaign, according to two sources familiar with the matter.

Confirmation of the trip would lend credence to a retired British spy’s report that Cohen strategized there with a powerful Kremlin figure about Russian meddling in the U.S. election.

It would also be one of the most significant developments thus far in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of whether the Trump campaign and the Kremlin worked together to help Trump win the White House. Undercutting Trump’s repeated pronouncements that “there is no evidence of collusion,” it also could ratchet up the stakes if the president tries, as he has intimated he might for months, to order Mueller’s firing.

I know one thing for sure .... it's gonna be damn politically embarrassing for Trump and the GOP if they indict Hillary, and then after 6 months and probably more of very public legal proceedings, which may or may not include a trial, she gets acquitted or charges otherwise dismissed.   I shudder to think of the discovery process that case would entail ... not to mention the pre-trial motions that would have to be dealt with, who knows how many depositions the defense would ask for, lots; and other legal wrangling that would occur long before they would even get close to putting on a trial.  All the while the left leaning media outlets loudly decrying to the nation for months how Hillary is being persecuted.

I once saw a Federal District Judge stop a jury trial right after the AUSA rested, declare there was not sufficient credible evidence to sustain the charges, and flat out dismiss the case from the bench.   Yeah, that can happen.   (of course I don't know which Federal Judges would have the huevos to do that in the case of Hillary, being as politically charged as it is.  But I bet there are some ... they are appointed for life, after all ... and this case is a perfect example of why that is)


You can bet also if it were to come down to an actual trial Hillary's lawyers will call dozens of witnesses and documents into evidence, some of whom/which the GOP might rather not see made public.  

Also when thinking about prosecuting Hillary and having a jury trial, consider where the jury pool would be drawn from.  It won't be from any place like Alabama.  

"Be careful what you ask for" my mother always used to say.

I think the idea of Hillary going to prison is as much of a right wing pipe-dream as the idea of Trump getting impeached is a left wing pipe-dream.

WASHINGTON—At least two of the memos that former FBI Director James Comey gave to a friend outside of the government contained information that officials now consider classified, according to people familiar with the matter, prompting a review by the Justice Department’s internal watchdog.

Of those two memos, Mr. Comey himself redacted elements of one that he knew to be classified to protect secrets before he handed the documents over to his friend.

And at the end of the day ... what does that really change?

Democrats don't like Comey either because he (inadvertently, IMO) threw the election to Trump. The most hated man in Washington .. by both political parties.

So you think that because Hillary and her husband have been pilloried by the GOP that she should now exit stage left? Think about what you just said.

And they DON'T KNOW that their actions are killing the party...they only know at this point how to embrace their donor class and fool Joe Sixpack.

What I said is the American public is weary of Hillary and would be fine with her just fading away .... but for the Trumpublicans that keep trying to drag her various pecadillos back into the media spotlight.  

As to whether Hillary is/is-not guilty of anything regarding e-mails, Benghazi, etc etc ..... well, as someone once said: "at this point, what difference, at this point, does it make"?

Exactly. At the very least she provides a bigly target for the republiklans to aim at until 2020. I voted for her in 2016 but won't in 2020. Nor will I vote for Bernie. The Dems need new blood in 2020 but I do hope Romney takes a run at the primary if only to rattle bone spur's cage.

There is a saying in Russian, Пья́ному мо́ре по коле́но, which translates to something like, “to a drunk, the sea is only knee-deep.” When you think about it, that’s a pretty fitting way to describe the oceanic mess into which Thomas M. Cooley Law School alumnus Michael Cohen appears to have waded without a life vest or, really, even knowing how to swim. Last year, Cohen told my colleague Emily Jane Fox that he would “take a bullet” for Donald Trump. Now, in the wake of three simultaneous F.B.I. raids that resulted in investigators carting off his computer, phone, thousands of documents, and a safe-deposit box, virtually all of Trump’s allies seem more worried that Cohen will take whatever deal the Southern District of New York (or, if he’s particularly screwed, even Robert Mueller) has to offer him. “When anybody is faced with spending a long time in jail, they start to re-evaluate their priorities, and cooperation can’t be ruled out,” one Trump ally recently said. Again, that’s a Trump ally.

In the days since the raid, things have only gotten worse for the president and his once-loyal fixer. On Friday, The New York Times suggested that Trump’s past treatment of Cohen, which Trump ally Roger Stone characterized as “like garbage,” may inspire him to talk. The night prior, Trump’s longtime divorce lawyer, Jay Goldberg, told CNN that Cohen would flip in order to avoid becoming someone’s “wife” in prison. Under investigation for potential wire fraud, bank fraud, and campaign violations, Cohen is facing years in prison, should he decide to take a metaphoric bullet for Trump. So at the moment, the fact that he owes hundreds of thousands of dollars in unpaid taxes related to his taxi company is probably not top of mind. Given that he’s likely going to owe millions in legal fees, however, his deteriorating financial situation is certainly worth mentioning:

Taxicab companies owned by Michael Cohen or family members just got hit with nearly $80,000 in new claims for unpaid taxes, according to records filed in New York.

New York state filed tax liens in Manhattan this week against five companies owned by Cohen and members of his family, including Mad Dog Cab Corp., Martha Cab Corp., LAF Hacking Corp. and NY Funky Taxi Corp. The Cohens own medallions for 32 taxis in New York City through 16 companies. Most of those companies are now encumbered by liens: State tax authorities are seeking about $174,000 in all in taxes from Cohen family taxi companies, including the latest claims.

Cohen, the chief executive officer of the five companies, disputed the figure and said the tax obligation isn’t his. “These are the obligations of the operator, not the passive investor,” he said in a telephone interview.


In related news that Cohen is likely praying to the gods of hush money will come true, Rudy Giuliani, the newest member of Trump’s legal team, has predicted that the Mueller probe will be over in a week, two weeks tops. “They’re almost there,” Giuliani, who may have been brought on simply for moral support, told the New York Post. For all you bookmakers out there, the last Trump attorney to predict a quick resolution to the Russia investigation was Ty Cobb, who claimed the whole thing would be wrapped up by Thanksgiving 2017.
