Senior Editors Mollie Hemingway and David Harsanyi round up this week’s biggest stories in politics on the Federalist Radio Hour.
Past and present U.S. officials say the template for the current anti-Trump leak campaign can be traced back to the Obama administration’s efforts to sell the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.
The story fails on multiple levels to make its central claim that congressional oversight regarding the use of human informants against the Trump campaign is hurting intelligence-gathering in Moscow.
President Trump’s decision to strip John Brennan’s security clearance sets a strong precedent that a person who uses his security clearance improperly will have it revoked.
Would you do everything you could to determine whether you could trust a source who lied to you before relying on him to treat a U.S. citizen guilty of treason?
All of the major players in this story — Ali Watkins, James Wolfe, The New York Times, and the Department of Justice — behaved in less than admirable fashion.
The inspector general’s direct answer whether James Comey lied was curious, in that his conclusion conflicts with facts and testimony detailed in his own report.
Here’s what might happen if an ‘uneducated, lazy POS’ American happened to spend some time around FBI henchmen Peter Strzok and James Comey.
On this episode of Federalist Radio Hour, Mollie Hemingway and David Harsanyi dive into immigration news, IG report findings, movies, music, and more.
‘Although FBI policy strictly limits the employees who are authorized to speak to the media, we found that this policy appeared to be widely ignored.’
Tomorrow the inspector general for the U.S. Department of Justice will release a report about the DOJ and FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton investigation in the run-up to the 2016 election.
Federal officials have provided more information to reporters at New York Times and Washington Post than they have in response to a congressional subpoena.
It’s reasonable to assume that much of the new information in the New York Times report relates to leakers’ fears about information that will be coming out in the inspector general report.
Did Joseph Mifsud use George Papadopoulos as a pawn to set up Donald Trump? Did he feed Papadopoulos information about Russia to see how the Trump campaign responded?
Now that the memos have been perused, the theories of a number of legal commentators have unsurprisingly proved to be full of errors, irrelevancies, and overstatements.
A newly declassified report on Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. elections reveals that former intelligence chief James Clapper lied to Congress about information he shared with CNN on the infamous Steele dossier.
Andrew McCabe and Democrats maintain McCabe’s firing was part of President Trump’s attack on the FBI. That’s not what this inspector general report shows.
After more than a year-long inquiry with obfuscation and deflection from the FBI, Graham wants to investigate as if Andrew McCabe hasn’t smelled like a fish for too long.
Americans should be reassured that the federal law enforcement agencies are working to keep America safer rather than focused on revenge against political enemies.
