Loretta’s turn on the Hill Grill: Will be told to testify under oath


In a House Judiciary Committee hearing on June 15, 2017, Rep. Jim Jordan, OH-04, questions acting Deputy Assistant Attorney General Richard Downing about former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s actions related to the Clinton email investigation during the 2016 presidential campaign.

 

The FBI, specifically Comey has dragged this “Case,” out for far too long.

 

Pure and simple, it’s another waste of taxpayer money.

Senate GOP shifts focus to Lynch

 

 

 

 

Senate Republicans are clamoring to hear from Loretta Lynch after former FBI Director James Comey raised concerns about her involvement in the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

 

Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee are seizing on Comey’s testimony earlier this month that he was concerned over the former attorney general telling the FBI to refer to the Clinton investigation as a “matter,” which resembled the Clinton campaign line.

 

The move could allow Republicans to attempt to pivot away from the investigation into Russia’s election meddling, which top GOP lawmakers have signaled belongs to the Intelligence Committee, and focus on Lynch, who has long been a target of Republicans.

 

 

Sen. John Cornyn (Texas), the No. 2 Senate Republican who is a member of both the Intelligence and Judiciary committees, said it “would be very helpful” for Lynch to testify before the Judiciary panel, which oversees the Justice Department.

“Frankly, a lot of what Hillary Clinton was exposed to by Director Comey’s misconduct and the way he handled that was apparently in response to his lack of confidence in the attorney general, and I think there is a lot we could learn from that,” Cornyn said.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) also wants to hear from Lynch and is pushing for the Judiciary Committee to “get more involved.”

“The accusations now that … the current and former attorney general were political, that has nothing to do with Russia as much as it has to do with how the Department of Justice is being run,” he said.

“I want to find out all about that.”

A spokesman for Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), the Judiciary Committee chairman, stressed that no decisions have been made and staffers needed to first “gather evidence.”

But the spokesman said it was “likely” after Comey’s remarks before the intelligence panel that Lynch’s testimony before the Judiciary Committee “will become necessary at some point.”

Attorney General Jeff Sessions to face questions on Comey firing and Russia

The party with no future is about to hoist itself one again on its on petard.

 

Today’s progressive Democrats who hijacked the once proud party of the Democrats, still have nothing to offer in the way of workable legislation to help the current administration’s attempt to begin turning the country around since the 8-years of tyranny We the People were forced to enjure, because ignorant, racist voters voted him in.

Please leave a comment discussing any legislation they have passed since Progressive President Woodrow Wilson.

How exactly did we get along without the Federal Income Tax and the Federal Reserve before then.

 

With this additional hearing, the Democrats will once again have proved that their party is clearly the party of “Taxation without Representation.”
What follows below is a huge helping of bull feces which is largely what the progressive is made of.
In no way do I wish to imply that the Attorney General won’t be testifying, categorically, this is just another instance of Democrat W.A.F.T.A.M.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions will face questions about the firing of FBI Director James Comey and undeclared meetings with Russian officials at a U.S. Senate hearing on Tuesday, becoming the highest-ranking member of President Donald Trump’s Cabinet to testify in the affair.

 

Democratic Senate Leader Chuck Schumer and Senator Jack Reed on Sunday questioned why Sessions was involved in Trump’s May 9 dismissal of Comey after he had recused himself from investigations of whether Russia tried to meddle in the 2016 presidential election with possible help from Trump associates.

“There’s a real question of the propriety of the attorney general participating in that in any way, shape or form,” Reed said on “Fox News Sunday.”

Sessions said in a letter on Saturday that he will appear before the committee to address matters that Comey brought up last week in testimony to the same panel.

He did not say whether he would appear in open or closed session. Democrats are pushing for a public hearing.

Senator Ron Wyden, an intelligence committee member, asked the panel’s leaders in a letter on Sunday to hold an open hearing.

Republican Senator James Lankford, a member of the intelligence panel, said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” the decision was not finalized, but, “I assume that this will be public.”

Sessions’ testimony comes amid a reported riff with Trump. Media reports last week said Sessions offered to resign because of tensions with the president over his decision to recuse himself from the FBI’s Russia probe.

Comey accused the Republican president of trying to get him to drop the investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn and fired him to undermine the Russia probe.

Trump himself attributed his dismissal of Comey to the Russia investigation.

Comey’s testimony on Thursday also raised new questions about the attorney general’s relationship with Russian officials with ties to President Vladimir Putin. One is whether Sessions had any undisclosed meetings with Ambassador Sergei Kislyak or other Russians during the campaign or after Trump took office.

A day before Comey appeared before the Senate intelligence panel, National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, also members of Trump’s Cabinet, took the stand.

Sessions in March removed himself from involvement in any probe into alleged Russian election meddling but maintained he did nothing wrong by failing to disclose that he met last year with Russia’s ambassador.

Reed, who attends intelligence hearings because he is top Democrat on the Armed Services Committee, said Sessions would be asked about any undeclared meetings he might have had with Russians. “That’ll come up,” he said on Fox.

National debt jumps nearly $100 billion in one day to record high

crew-2231211Admittedly, it would be easy to blame the increase in the crushing federal deficit on Obama and the Democrats.

 

Factually, spending bills originate in congress, and are sent to the Oval Office for the occupant’s signature.

Deficits are common: in the last half century, the federal government has run a deficit in 45 out of 50 years.

If the government runs a deficit, the U.S. Treasury borrows money to make up the difference between how much money is being spent and how much money is coming in, thus creating federal debt. (Source)

Talk about “Taxation without representation!

Aside from tax receipts or lower spending, another way to reduce the national debt is through gifts to the Treasury Department.

July 2, 2016

 

The U.S. national debt is creeping up again, after holding steady for the last few months thanks to the annual flood of individual and corporate tax receipts.

Total government debt hit a record $19.38 trillion on Thursday, up nearly $98 billion from the day before. It’s the first time it has ever exceeded $19.3 trillion.

 

The debt will soar higher still in the coming months, and is expected to approach $20 trillion by the time Obama leaves office.

The total debt had been essentially flat since March, when it hit $19.2 trillion.

Growth in the national debt often slows or plateaus in the spring and early summer, as tax receipts in April help balance out federal spending that’s on a current pace to exceed receipts by $500 billion.

The federal government collected a record high $1.48 trillion in tax revenues in the first half of the year, which helped offset growth in the deficit over the last few months.

Total public debt on Thursday was $13.93 trillion, and government loans to itself are $5.45 trillion.

$1,000 Gun Tax Pushed as “Role Model” for States

crew-2231211As it so often happens, bad news is followed by the good.

 

Please tell me I’m not the only one who would love slap the smugness off Hillary Clinton’s chubby little cheeks.

By her words and deeds she has shown clearly that she intends to rule America like Barack Hussein Obama, finishing his work of bringing the 14148251835_9f4e03f448country down.

Is this the sort of being we want in the White House in the near future? 

Any member of congress who would sign such a piece of legislation would necessarily be term limiting themselves.

All of them have marksmen and hunters among their constituents.

If the leftist politicos aren’t stopped dead in their tracks, what is to keep them and their feels of grandeur from taxing all currently owned fire arms retroactively?

A typical gun store, anywhere U.S.A.
Hillary, a globalist, and the constant harbinger of attempting to get the United States to enter the U.N. Gun Ban Treaty.
Certainly there is no reason to think she should become a U.S. President when she is against the Second Amendment.

Steep gun tax concept endorsed by Hillary Clinton in 1993 beginning to take hold.

Seriously is Hillary so woefully under educated about how the U.S. may enter into an agreement or law with a foreign entity or country?
To get her up to speed, she need read and fully comprehend: The Process for U.S. Treaties and Agreements. (Source)

This of course is covered in (Article II, section 2, clause 2 of the Constitution.)

Americans For Tax Reform

WASHINGTON, D.C. – A $1,000 per gun tax should serve as a “role model” for states, according to the governor of the U.S. territory of the Northern Mariana Islands, which imposed the $1,000 gun tax earlier this month.

UN-GUN-BANAn idea first endorsed by Hillary Clinton in 1993, steep gun taxes have now taken hold in Cook County, Ill. the city of Seattle, and now a U.S. territory.

The administration of Gov. Ralph DLG Torres defended the CNMI’s new gun control laws on Friday as a law that could be “a role model” for other U.S. states and jurisdictions facing seemingly uncontrolled and continued gun violence.

The administration was responding to queries regarding its position on recent reports that the a legal challenge to the new law, Public law 19-42, was likely, particularly over a provision that assesses a $1,000 excise tax on pistols.

The threat of such a tax serving as a role model for other politicians to impose is not an idle one.

Consider the following:

Seattle Gun and Ammunition Tax: On Jan. 1, 2016, Seattle’s $25 per gun tax took effect, as did a two-cent to five cent tax per round of ammunition.

The new taxes have already forced at least one major gun dealer to leave the city.

Cook County, Ill. Gun and Ammunition Tax: On June 1, 2016, Cook County’s new ammunition tax takes effect, at a rate of one cent to five cents per round of ammunition. The ammo tax comes on top of the existing gun tax regime of $25 per gun.

Hillary Clinton’s 25% Gun Tax Endorsement: In passionate testimony to the Senate Finance Committee in 1993, Hillary Clinton gave her strong personal endorsement to a new national 25% sales tax on guns and endorsed a steep increase in the gun dealer fee, to $2,500.

“I am speaking personally, but I feel very strongly about that,” said Clinton at the conclusion of her endorsement.

“The Left is now seeking to tax guns out of existence,” said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform. “The Second Amendment makes it difficult to legally ban guns, but Hillary has led the way to explaining you can achieve the same thing with high taxes.”

In newly released footage from Americans for Tax Reform, Clinton is shown nodding enthusiastically as she endorsed the 25% gun tax and as legal gun dealers were described as “purveyors of violence.”
