The GOP Congress’ Disgraceful And Desperate Peter Strzok Hearing

by Richard Cameron   It’s indisputable that much of what takes place in congressional hearings have a partisan edge to them. It is essentially baked in the cake. That is to be expected. Seldom, however, will you see a hearing like the one conducted yesterday on Capitol Hill, in which a witness is subjected to scurrilous and indecent character attacks, the likes of which Donald Trump engages in on a daily basis and which the self same legislative thugs alternately excuse, deflect and remain silent on as frequently.  Spanning close…

You Mean Donald Trump Lied About Recording His Meetings With FBI Director James Comey?

by Richard Cameron The cat is out of the bag on Donald Trump’s allusion to recordings taken during his private meetings with former FBI Director James B. Comey. As you will recall, back on May 12, Trump tweeted “James Comey better hope that there are no “tapes” of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!”. Since then, the House Intelligence Committee, gave the White House and Trump’s chief counsel, Don McGahn a deadline of the 23rd for production of any and all such recordings involved in Trump’s claim,…

The Trump Propaganda Network Is In Overdrive Mode On Character Assassination

by Richard Cameron It has always been Donald Trump’s stock in trade to use all means at his disposal to per-emptively and re-actively attack any individual that he perceives as an actual or potential threat to his interests. This goes all the way back in his personal history. Most of the Trump behavior so characteristic of his verbal fusillades and tweets, have their origins in the mentoring of Trump by Roy Cohn. The infamous Roy Cohn, who served as “Tailgunner Joe” Senator Joseph McCarthy’s legal wingman in McCarthy’s infamous  Army–McCarthy…

Attorney General Jeff Sessions Invokes The “I Do Not Recall” Strategy In Senate Hearings

by Richard Cameron Attorney General Jeff Sessions resorted to two main tactics in hedging particular lines of questioning in his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee today.  One was selective amnesia with regard to particulars concerning interactions with Russian officials during the 2016 Presidential campaign. The other was his invoking of a “longstanding policy” of cabinet level heads of the Department of Justice not to comment on private discussions, “confidential communications”, as he termed them, with the executive branch (i.e., the President). It’s interesting, the pattern emerging. Trump’s media surrogates and…

The Most Important Part of James Comey’s Testimony That no one is Talking About

Dani Graham Most of the discussion surrounding the highly anticipated testimony of former FBI director, James Comey, seems to be centered around who’s lying, obstruction of justice, collusion, or the legality of leaks, while the most vital issue is being largely ignored. This issue, which has grave national security implications, which affects each one of us and threatens our very democracy, is the one matter that has been unequivocally proven: Russia did indeed interfere with our elections. We may not yet know to what extent or the full impact, however,…

Is Former FBI Director James Comey’s Senate Testimony An Exoneration Of Donald Trump? Not Even Close.

By Richard Cameron Directly following former FBI Director James Comey’s question and answer sessions Thursday in the Senate chamber, political narratives emerged, falling generally along partisan lines.  For Democrats, Comey’s testimony was notable in that he asserted that Donald Trump lied about the condition of the FBI and the reasons Trump disclosed for Comey’s firing. For Republicans who are still tethering their destiny to that of the President’s, Comey’s answers were a full absolution of any wrongdoing on the part of the President. To listen to them, you would have to conclude…

Will President Trump Attempt To Invoke Executive Privilege To Muzzle James Comey?

by Richard Cameron WASHINGTON D.C. White House Senior Advisor, Kellyanne Conway in an interview with ABC News, left room for speculation that President Trump might conceivably move to prohibit former FBI Director James Comey from testifying before Congress next week. At first Conway said, “We’ll be watching with the rest of the world when Director Comey testifies.”  But in a follow up question, she was asked about the possibility of the president invoking “executive privilege” to block the man he fired less than a month ago from speaking to the…
