    Former Trump White House adviser Steve Bannon interviewed Mike Lindell on his WarRoom podcast Wednesday, the day after Lindell had his phone seized by the FBI. In the lengthy interview, Bannon made clear he has no love for the Federal Bureau of Investigation or the law enforcement officers who currently work there — unless they turn on the bureau and become whistleblowers. “I told the FBI guys, Steve, I told the FBI guys. I said, you guys are going to be on my 6 o’clock show on frank speech. And and they said this corrupt investigation, whatever you’re trying to do, and they go, Mike, ‘we’re just doing our jobs.’” “I said, Yeah. I said, the corruption goes back to our government,” Lindell added as Bannon jumped in, “Hold on, hold on, hold on. Stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop.” “I want all the FBI people out there. We got whistleblowers all over the place,” Bannon then said, adding: That phrase is not going to save you. That’s what the Waffen SS said. That’s what the Gestapo said to...
    A senior Republican on Wednesday denounced the raid on Mar-a-Lago as part of a plot to target Joe Biden's likely 2024 election opponent, and accused the media of cheering on a second 'Russia hoax.' And Elaine Stefanik, the third most senior Republican in the House, said leaks justifying the operation would not be enough to protect the F.B.I. and the Department of Justice from scrutiny.  It comes after court documents revealed more information about why the F.B.I. searched former President Donald Trump's Florida home, and growing evidence of an effort to obstruct justice. The new revelations, in a Tuesday night filing, triggered angry outbursts from Trump loyalists of a witch hunt.  'This is Russia hoax 2.0 with the typical loyal media accomplices,' said Stefanik in a statement given to Axios.  'The latest leaked justification that started off as nuclear codes has now morphed into whatever Joe Biden's corrupt agencies think the media will transcribe as the loyal stenographers they are.' Leaks soon after the raid claimed that nuclear secrets were among the documents that Trump had ferried to Mar-a-Lago as...
    Former Trump strategist and podcaster Steve Bannon tore into Mike Pence as a 'mindless, gutless simp' after the former vice president defended the FBI amid calls to 'defund' it for the raid on Mar-a-Lago.  'Mike Pence said, 'We gotta stop criticizing, we're a law and order party,' Bannon said on his War Room podcast. 'This is what this mindless, gutless simp said.'  Pence on Wednesday in New Hampshire urged fellow Republicans to stop their attacks on the FBI after it conducted a search on Trump's Florida property.  'Our party stands with the men and women who stand on the thin blue line at the federal and state and local level, and these attacks on the FBI must stop. Calls to defund the FBI are just as wrong as calls to defund the police,' Pence said. 'Mike Pence said, 'We gotta stop criticizing, we're a law and order party,' Steve Bannon said. 'This is what this mindless, gutless simp said Mike Pence on Wednesday in New Hampshire urged fellow Republicans to stop their attacks on the FBI after it conducted a...
    By Holly Ramer | Associated Press MANCHESTER, N.H. — Former Vice President Mike Pence on Wednesday implored fellow Republicans to stop lashing out at the FBI over the search of Donald Trump’s Florida home and denounced calls by some of the former president’s allies to defund the FBI, saying that was “just as wrong” as a push by Democratic activists to shift money from police. Pence also said he would give “due consideration” if asked to testify before the House committee investigating the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. His pleas for restraint come as law enforcement officials warn of an escalating number of violent threats targeting federal agents and government facilities since agents last week searched Mar-a-Lago as part of the Justice Department’s investigation into the discovery of classified White House records recovered from Trump’s estate earlier this year. Speaking in New Hampshire, Pence said he has been troubled by what he called the politicization of the FBI. He also said the Justice Department and Attorney General Merrick Garland should be more forthcoming about what led...
    "People have to stop calling it a 'raid.' It was a lawful search pursuant to a warrant. Don't let Trump and pals frame the messaging," Kanefield tweeted. A tweet posted on conservative commentator Dan Bongino's account featured a string of laughing emojis and clown emojis as a response to Kanefield's comments. "Someone said the alternative to 'raid' also needs to be short and snappy. I think the phrase needs to suggest due process of law to counter the right-wing narrative that Trump's home was 'under siege' and 'occupied.' Okaaaay. Fiiiine. I'll go with 'search,'" Kanefield tweeted. \u201c\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83d\ude02\ud83e\udd21\ud83e\udd21\ud83e\udd21\ud83e\udd21\ud83e\udd21\ud83e\udd21\ud83e\udd21\ud83e\udd21\ud83e\udd21\ud83e\udd21\ud83d\udc47\ud83c\udffb\u201d — Dan Bongino (@Dan Bongino) 1660079722
    by Lloyd Billingsley   The 18-member U.S. intelligence community (IC) has released the Annual Statistical Transparency Report Regarding the Intelligence Community’s Use of National Security Surveillance Authorities. One of the few to pay attention was historian Matthew Guariglia, a policy analyst at the Electronic Frontier Foundation and an affiliated scholar at the University of California’s Hastings School of Law. This government document, the ninth such report to be made public, “provides statistics and contextual information concerning how the Intelligence Community uses the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and certain other national security authorities to accomplish its mission.” The law authorizes the U.S. government to engage in mass surveillance of foreign targets. As Guariglia discovered, FISA is “still being abused by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to spy on Americans without a warrant.” This abuse takes place under Section 702, an amendment to FISA. Between December 2020 and November 2021, Guariglia notes, the FBI potentially queried the data of more than 3 million Americans without a warrant. The collection of the data, from telecom and internet providers, renders conversations described as “incidental” – except they aren’t. Each intelligence agency’s rules...
    A memorial for the victims of Tuesday’s mass shooting at Robb Elementary School is seen on Friday, May 27, 2022 in Uvalde, Texas. Nineteen children and two adults were killed. (Photo by Michael M. Santiago/Getty Images.) The law enforcement narrative about precisely what occurred this Tuesday when gunman Salvador Ramos killed 19 children and two teachers at a Uvalde, Texas elementary school has changed, changed, and changed again, but one thing has not: the law. And the law does not require police officers to rush guns-blazing into any dangerous situation, despite the fact that officers do sometimes put themselves in harm’s way to save innocent lives. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) on Wednesday touted the “amazing courage” of the police officers who he claimed were “running toward gunfire” to end the killing spree. By Friday, Abbott backtracked. He said he was “livid” to learn that officers waited about an hour to neutralize the gunman as children lay dying on the floor — some of them calling 911 and begging the police to save them. Abbott claims he was originally “misled” on the facts....
    A Nebraska man accused of participating in the storming of the U.S. Capitol was arrested Monday in Omaha, the FBI said. Brandon Straka of Omaha faces federal charges of impeding a law enforcement officer during civil disorder, knowingly entering and remaining on restricted grounds, and engaging in disorderly conduct with intent to disturb a hearing before Congress. TEXAS MAN ARRESTED IN DC WITH UNLICENSED PISTOL, OVER 80 ROUNDS AFTER TELLING COP HE NEEDED INFO ON OVAL OFFICE  A federal criminal complaint included a screenshot of a video clip obtained by the FBI showing Straka in a crowd outside the Capitol on Jan. 6. As he neared the entrance, Straka turned the camera to film himself stating, "They’re using gas. We’re being gassed right now." (Justice Department) Straka's initial court appearance is Tuesday, the Omaha World-Herald reported. An eight-minute video filmed by Straka that was sent to the FBI allegedly showed Straka pushing forward with the crowd to get several feet from a Capitol entrance. "Go! Go!," Straka yelled, according to the complaint. "We're going in. They're saying we're...
    Christopher A. Wray, the director of the FBI who took over from James Comey in 2017, has not spoken publicly since Wednesday's riot The FBI circulated an internal memo warning that a 'war' was coming to the Capitol the day before thousands stormed it but did nothing to stop it, it has been revealed.    On January 5, the FBI's office in Norfolk, Virginia, blasted an internal memo which cited social media posts talking about spilling the blood of 'BLM slave soldiers' on the Capitol.   The memo was obtained by The Washington Post on Tuesday. It read: 'As of 5 January 2021, FBI Norfolk received information indicating calls for violence in response to ‘unlawful lockdowns’ to begin on 6 January 2021 in Washington. D.C.  'An online thread discussed specific calls for violence to include stating ‘Be ready to fight. Congress needs to hear glass breaking, doors being kicked in, and blood from their BLM and Pantifa slave soldiers being spilled.  'Get violent. Stop calling this a march, or rally, or a protest. Go there ready for war. We get our President...
    Produced by Josh Gaynor In March 2018, a serial bomber planted five explosive devices in packages and placed one next to a trip wire on a suburban street in Austin, Texas. Unsuspecting residents found packages outside their homes. The packages were designed to explode when they were picked up and moved. Two people were killed and four more injured. The FBI deployed more than 600 agents and analysts to work with other federal and local law enforcement agencies, including the Austin Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Get Breaking News Delivered to Your Inbox "The FBI will bring 20 people to a two-man fight. That's the way we do things," says FBI Special Agent bomb technician Michael Call. "So, if the FBI is going to target you and you're doing something criminal, terrorist, we will not stop. Period." Investigators searched through charred bomb fragments and scorched electronics to identify individual parts of the explosive devices. That led them to big box hardware stores and hundreds of hours of surveillance footage. "A lot of things...
    Democratic nominee Joe Biden said he believed that President Donald Trump encouragement to 'LIBERATE MICHIGAN' led to a plot to kidnap Michigan's Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and incite a 'civil war.'  'Yes I do,' Biden answered when asked about Trump's April tweet, which was in protest of the governor's coronavirus lockdown restrictions. 'Why can't the president just say, "Stop. Stop, stop, stop, and we will pursue you if you don't. So, stop."'   As he was arriving in Arizona for a campaign stop with Cindy McCain, the widow of Republican Sen. John McCain, Biden said he and running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, had both spoken with Whitmer Tuesday, hours after news of the plot broke.      Biden said Whitmer was 'feeling secure and good.' And he credited the FBI for the role the agency played.   'The words of a president matter,' Biden told reporters. 'They can cause a nation to have the market rise or fall, go to war or bring peace. But they can also breath oxygen into those who are filled with hate and danger and I just think...
    Former Vice President Joe Biden blamed President Donald Trump on Thursday for a foiled kidnapping plot by a group of extremists who intended to abduct Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. The FBI arrested six named alleged co-conspirators and seven others on Thursday morning for conspiring to kidnap the governor. Though it did not name a specific political ideology, the FBI’s criminal complaint alleges that the members of the group “talked about creating a society that followed the U.S. Bill of Rights and where they could be self-sufficient.” Two apparently met at a Second Amendment rally. One member of the group, Brandon Caserta, was seen in an online video in front of an anarchist flag. Biden, speaking to reporters in Arizona alongside running mate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), said Trump’s rhetoric was to blame: There is no place for hate in America. And both of us have been talking about this for some time, about how white supremacists and these militias area a genuine threat. I want to compliment the FBI and the police agencies for what they did, and how they stepped...
    The Big Idea is a series that asks top lawmakers and figures to discuss their moonshot – what’s the one proposal, if politics and polls and even price tag were not an issue, they’d implement to change the country for the better? Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Chairman Ron Johnson has been investigating the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation for years. Just this summer, the committee voted to give Johnson, R-Wis., authority to subpoena more than two dozen former Obama officials individuals for documents and testimony as part of the committee's review of the FBI's original Russia probe, and former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. FBI OFFICIAL ON MUELLER TEAM SAID FLYNN PROSECUTION HAD 'GET TRUMP' ATTITUDE, COLLUSION PROBE WAS 'NOT THERE' Johnson's committee is just one on Capitol Hill investigating the origins of the probe, also known as "Crossfire Hurricane." The Senate Judiciary Committee, chaired by Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., is also investigating the matter. Meanwhile, Attorney General Bill Barr appointed U.S. Attorney John Durham last year to investigate the origins of the FBI’s original Russia probe – which began in July 2016, through the appointment of...
    Left-wing progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y) suggested Tuesday that lawmakers need to stop "asking if white supremacy in policing exists" and instead work to determine the scope of the problem. Ocasio-Cortez made the remarks during a House Oversight and Reform hearing about the supposedly "pervasive" problem of white supremacists infiltrating the nation's police departments. During the hearing, law enforcement officers, legal experts — and even a former neo-Nazi — were asked by lawmakers to testify about their past experiences with racist police officers. When it was Ocasio-Cortez's turn to speak, she suggested that "far too much of the discussion around the issue of white supremacist infiltration of policing focuses on whether this problem exists." "We have known for generations that it's not a question about whether this problem is an issue, it's a matter of how we have allowed it to sustain for so long," she said. "Congress, as well, has been complicit, and our silence has allowed for more violence and continued generational trauma in our communities." Rep. @AOC: "We have to stop asking IF white supremacy...
    Thursday, disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok appeared on CNN’s “New Day” to discuss his new book, “Compromised.” Host Alisyn Camerota asked Strzok about the text messages between him and his extramarital lover Lisa Page in which he vowed the FBI would “stop” then-candidate Donald Trump from becoming president. Strzok downplayed the text message, saying his comment about stopping Trump “was an off the cuff moment made outside of any work context whatsoever.” “[I]n 2018 you testified that you couldn’t remember what you were referring to in terms of the ‘No, we’ll stop it.’ Do you have any more context now about that?” “Absolutely,” Strzok replied. “I mean, this was an off the cuff comment made outside of any work context whatsoever. What’s critical to notice throughout the time period of 2016, in the summer and fall, every single action that we took in the FBI, that I took in the FBI, that came out of the public context ended up hurting candidate Clinton and helping candidate, at the time, Trump.” He added, “Furthermore, there have been multiple investigations —...
    Prince Andrew must 'stop making excuses' and now tell the FBI everything he knows about his friend Ghislaine Maxwell following her arrest, a top US lawyer said today.  Gloria Allred, who is based in Los Angeles and represents 16 accusers of paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, said the Queen's 60-year-old son must 'contact the FBI immediately'. Andrew's six-month standoff with the FBI deepened after Maxwell was detained for allegedly helping to lure underage girls who were then sexually abused by Epstein. Her arrest in Bradford, New Hampshire, will now intensify calls for Andrew to be quizzed about any involvement he may have had, despite him denying wrongdoing. Andrew has previously claimed he has offered three times to be a witness in the case, but US prosecutors say he has declined their request to schedule an interview. Maxwell lived for years with Epstein, whose victim Virginia Roberts Giuffre claimed she arranged for her to have sex with the Duke of York at her London townhouse. Andrew denied her story and claimed last month he was being treated as a second-class citizen by the...
            by Robert Romano  A newly released hand-written note by former FBI agent Peter Strzok from early Jan. 2017 confirms knowledge and direction of the investigation of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn by former President Barack Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden. The note was submitted as evidence by Flynn’s lawyers Jesse Binnall and Sidney Powell on June 24 just as the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals issued a rare writ of mandamus ordering Judge Emmet Sullivan to dismiss the case against Flynn. Per Binnall and Powell, both Obama and Biden were aware there was nothing untoward about Flynn’s Dec. 2016 discussions with Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak, “Yesterday, the Government produced further stunning and exculpatory evidence, previously withheld from General Flynn, showing that Director Comey himself and the highest levels of the Obama Administration had the transcripts of Flynn’s phone calls with officials of other countries and knew General Flynn’s calls were lawful and proper.” Binnall and Powell continued, “Strzok’s notes believed to be of January 4, 2017, reveal that former President Obama, James Comey, Sally Yates, Joe...
    FBI Director Christopher Wray tells Fox News’ Brett Baier that the American people can trust the voting system as they prepare for the next presidential election in November. “Our election infrastructure, certainly for an adversary to meddle with vote count, would be extremely difficult to achieve,” Wray said. “But that doesn't mean that there aren’t lots of other ways in which foreign adversaries have tried to interfere.” In an interview that airs Wednesday at 6 p.m. ET on "Special Report," Wray points to Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, which was the basis for the Mueller report. Wray says “misinformation and false influence” are the two biggest threats the American voter faces. WILLIAM SESSIONS, FBI CHIEF FIRED BY PRESIDENT CLINTON, DIESThe 448-page Mueller report, which took over two years of investigations, found that Russia completed a sophisticated operation using social media and misinformation to influence American voters. When it comes to foreign influence in the United States and voting, the Mueller report identified that the Internet Research Agency (IRA), a Russia troll company, carried out “a social media campaign designed to...
