The biggest backers of the Trump-Russia collusion hoax have already exonerated Sussmann. That fits a long pattern of them downplaying every advance in investigation into their hoax.
In an attempt to obtain some semblance of justice, The Mac Shop owner sued Twitter for defamation. Now his business is closed, his case is thrown out, and Twitter wants him to pay the attorney fees.
The case heard Tuesday on the extreme government measure is one of the most advanced of the cases in litigation, and may well be the landmark case that reaffirms or overrules Jacobson.
Evidence shows Sussmann was entangled in the scandal involving the Clinton campaign, multiple internet companies, two federally-funded university researchers, and a complicit media.
The FBI had knowledge that a second laptop had been stolen from Hunter Biden and that laptop contained material making the Biden family a national security risk, subject to Russian influence.
Joe Biden and his team cannot duck questions forever. And the questions will only get more difficult with the passing days.
Under Biden’s direct command, the Taliban reportedly seized hundreds of U.S. Humvees, Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles, and several million-dollar U.S. drones.
The potential blackmailing of Hunter Biden pales in comparison to the real national security risks revealed by the videos, yet the corrupt media couldn’t care less.
The court’s analysis provides a devastating indictment of the Biden administration, establishing the current invasion of the U.S. southern border is a self-inflicted wound.
The issue here is not Hunter’s addiction or illegal behavior. Rather, it’s the intense corruption of the media and intelligence agencies, and how greatly our current president is compromised.
It is unsurprising the Biden administration’s apologists seek to spin his use of Title 42 expulsions because the truth shows how his border policies have caused the immigration crisis.
Texas Democrats’ rambling seven-page complaint may seek publicity for their runaway cause, but it promises only one thing: further ridicule.
While the Biden administration won the first round and will likely prevail at later stages, it will be a Pyrrhic victory if Texas succeeds in forcing coverage of the crisis at the border.
The very evidence The New York Times cites to allege Trump told a DOJ official to ‘just say that the election was corrupt’ shows it came in an entirely different portion of the discussion.
New documents represent the Biden administration’s latest attempt to squelch investigations into irregularities, silence critics of the 2020 election, and cement free-for-all voting ‘procedures.’
Americans should see 2020 and the January 6 riot as a wake-up call to the future our nation faces should election integrity not be restored.
One must wonder how seriously the Georgia secretary of state takes its fraud investigation if its staffer frames those who violate state law as merely ‘trying to exercise their right to vote.’
The tangled web of voter reform laws, the Trump voter fraud accusations, and the Secretary of State Office’s findings show why we need more digging on what happened in Georgia.
While Democrats and their partners in the press push the Jim Crow canard, they ignore the real disenfranchisement that took place in the mess of the 2020 election.
There was both an audit and a statewide recount confirming Joe Biden’s victory, but ignored in the process was evidence that nearly 35,000 Georgians had potentially voted illegally — more than Biden’s margin.
