Over the past few days I have pointed out why I can’t wait until January 2021. Senator Grassley will be taking back the Chairmanship from Senator Graham. He will once again head the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Senator Graham has done absolutely nothing in the position. One can easily make the argument that he is protecting all the swamp dwellers.
Senator Grassley sends a letter (pdf here) thanking AG Bill Barr and Acting DNI Richard Grenell for the declassified documents produced so far. With the DOJ deciding to drop Lt. General Flynn’s prosecution, Senator Grassley notes there are three more buckets of classified documents he would like to see declassified and presented soon:
(1) The Flynn/Kislyak transcript (2) The Susan Rice Memo to file (3) The original and missing Flynn 302 authored by FBI agent Joe Pientka.
Within the letter Senator Grassley notes he previously requested the release of these documents from former DAG Rod Rosenstein. Rosenstein refused to submit them and made excuses to congressional oversight.
Senator Grassley appeared on Fox Business for an interview with Liz MacDonald. Liz is interviewing Senator Grassley about his letter and other developments.
DOJ Spokesperson Kerri Kupec says: “what happened to candidate Trump was one of the greatest political injustices in history.”
What is absolutely exciting about her comments is that there is no way she would do so without the blessing of AG Barr. AG Barr cannot make public comments that are too strong but authorizing the spokesperson to articulate the position is one way to accomplish the same.
Ms. Kupec outlines in her interview the ‘unmasking’ data-set is being reviewed as part of John Durham’s larger investigative inquiry.
Lou Dobbs interviewed Sidney Powell about the ongoing revelations that are directly and indirectly connected to the case against Lt. General Flynn.
Sydney Powell keeps a lot of the POS awake at night because she is in a position to help people see how the dots connect over multiple years.
The Swamp decides to pushback using the judge overseeing Lt. General Flynn’s case.
Judge Emmet Sullivan yesterday entered an order granting outside parties the time to enter amicus briefs to assist in guiding the court.
The POS Judge states the following:
…”Given the posture of the case the court anticipates individuals and organizations will seek leave to file amicus briefs”…
I think AG Barr pushed back by having the spokesperson above deliver her message to the Swamp, the Judge and BHO. Two can play that game and the ammunition Barr has will destroy each and everyone of them!
In response to Judge Emmet Sullivan announcing a delay in Flynn ruling to allow third party amicus briefs to be filed with the court, Michael Flynn’s defense counsel files a motion in opposition.
Whenever John Solomon speaks, I listen:
Shitty has been exposed!
From the article linked above:
Americans expect that politicians will lie, but sometimes the examples are so brazen that they deserve special notice. Newly released Congressional testimony shows that Adam Schiff spread falsehoods shamelessly about Russia and Donald Trump for three years even as his own committee gathered contrary evidence.
The House Intelligence Committee last week released 57 transcripts of interviews it conducted in its investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election. The committee probe started in January 2017 under then-Chair Devin Nunes and concluded in March 2018 with a report finding no evidence that the Trump campaign conspired with the Kremlin. Most of the transcripts were ready for release long ago, but Mr. Schiff oddly refused to release them after he became chairman in 2019. He only released them last week when the White House threatened to do it first.
Now we know why. From the earliest days of the collusion narrative, Mr. Schiff insisted that he had evidence proving the plot. In March 2017 on MSNBC, Mr. Schiff teased that he couldn’t “go into particulars, but there is more than circumstantial evidence now.”
[…] None of this was true, and Mr. Schiff knew it.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany held a press briefing to discuss current political events and answer media questions.

Sometimes in life announcements are made at the best time possible! We saw that in Los Angeles yesterday.
According to the Los Angeles Times city officials plan to keep the stay-at-home order in place for an additional three months.
From the article linked above:
Los Angeles County’s stay-at-home orders will “with all certainty” be extended for the next three months, county Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer acknowledged during a Board of Supervisors meeting on Tuesday.
Ferrer, though she didn’t issue an official order, said that timeline would only change if there was a “dramatic change to the virus and tools at hand.”
“Our hope is that by using the data, we’d be able to slowly lift restrictions over the next three months,” she said. But without widely available therapeutic testing for the coronavirus or rapid at-home versions that would allow people to test themselves daily, it seems unlikely that restrictions would be completely eased.
When you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes!
Remember what I said about Independents:
We also won a State Senate seat:
We also retained our Congressional seat in Wisconsin
Our President also did very well in Nebraska:
I am so happy that Governor DeSantis is starting to get the credit that he deserves in how he has handled the Coronavirus.
From the article linked above:
On May 1, the Friday before Florida began its phased reopening, Ron DeSantis, the state’s 41-year-old governor and a fierce ally of President Donald Trump, held a news conference in Jacksonville, where he was born.
Two aspects of his remarks stood out for me. The first was how aggrieved he sounded. Practically since the coronavirus hit Florida, DeSantis has been pilloried for the way he has handled the crisis. He was late in calling for a statewide lockdown. He barred a journalist from a news conference after she requested that he accommodate the need for social distancing. He refused to shut down churches and synagogues. Following Trump’s lead, he touted the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for the virus. His harshest critic, the Miami Herald, began an editorial in mid-April this way:
“You know what Florida really needs right now? A governor.”
[…] And the second thing that struck me about the governor’s remarks? How sensible they sounded. Seriously. Why was Florida opening its parks? Because, he said, even in a pandemic, open spaces were necessary for peace of mind. And because the evidence showed that the risk of contracting the virus was much lower outdoors than indoors. And because maintaining proper social distancing in parks was not terribly difficult.
