Nadler Sends Letter Asking Mueller to Testify Before Congress and Announces He Will Subpoena Unredacted Report

Published

on

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) has sent a letter to Special Counsel Robert Mueller requesting he testify before Congress (below). He also has just announced he will subpoena the Dept. of Justice for the full, complete, and unredacted Mueller report.

Chairman Nadler set a deadline of May 23.

 

Chairman Nadler also announced, “I will issue a subpoena for the full report and the underlying materials.”

Nadler says that contrary to claims made by Attorney General William Barr or his office, no separate, less-redacted Mueller report has been delivered to Congress, nor has Barr’s office notified Congress directly that it intends to do so, and if so, when.

“The timing of when Nadler will issue the subpoena is unclear,” The Hill reports.

A copy of the redacted Mueller report can be accessed here.

Trump Faces ‘Embarrassing’ Defeat as Candidate He Un-Endorsed Stages Comeback: CNN Election Analyst

Published

on

While most of the attention about Tuesday’s state primaries has focused on the predicted failure by Donald Trump-endorsed David Perdue to unseat Gov. Brian Kemp (R-GA) on the November midterm ballot, CNN’s election analyst Harry Enten claims the former president is on the verge of suffering a second humiliating loss.

In this case, it’s a Republican Party candidate in Alabama whose fortunes took a turn for the better after the former president un-endorsed him.

Speaking with “New Day” host John Berman about what to expect in multiple primaries, Enten noted that Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) — who notably spoke at Trump’s “Stop the Steal “ rally on Jan 6th that preceded the Capitol riot — had his Trump endorsement rescinded in March because of his initial poor polling numbers with voters.

That has now changed as he is neck and neck with two other candidates seeking to fill the U.S. Senate seat currently held by retiring Sen. Richard Shelby.

“What is the impact of unendorsement?” he was asked.

“Yeah, that’s the question,” Enten replied. “If Mo Brooks is able to reach that, that’s embarrassing.”

‘Substantial Reason to Believe’ Ronny Jackson Unlawfully Spent Thousands in Campaign Funds on Club Membership: Report

Published

on

Trump White House Physician turned far-right MAGA Republican Congressman Ronny Jackson may have unlawfully used thousands of dollars in campaign funds to buy memberships at a private Texas dinner club, a non-partisan federal watchdog office revealed Monday, Forbes reported.

The non-partisan Office of Congressional Ethics (OCE), a ten-member board that is not comprised of members of Congress (and not to be confused with the House Committee on Congressional Ethics), issued a report stating:

“Rep. Ronny Jackson’s campaign committee, Texans for Ronny Jackson, reported campaign disbursements that may not be legitimate and verifiable campaign expenditures attributable to bona fide campaign or political purposes. If Rep. Jackson converted campaign funds from Texans for Ronny Jackson to personal use, or if Rep. Jackson’s campaign committee expended funds that were not attributable to bona fide campaign or political purposes, then Rep. Jackson may have violated House rules, standards of conduct, and federal law.”

The House Committee on Ethics in a statement said it “will review the matter.”

‘Lies and Hatred’: Top Russian Diplomat Resigns – Accuses Putin of Attacking Ukraine ‘To Remain in Power Forever’

Published

on

A top Russian diplomat, the head of mission to the United Nations in Geneva, has resigned in a damning letter that accuses President Vladimir Putin and his associates of attacking Ukraine “to remain in power forever, live in pompous tasteless palaces, sail on yachts comparable in tonnage and cost to the entire Russian Navy, enjoying unlimited power and complete impunity.”

For two decades Boris Bondarev says he has worked in Russia’s foreign ministry, as The Daily Beast reports. In his letter, posted by the Executive Director of United Nations Watch (below) Bondarev adds:

“To achieve that [power] they are willing to sacrifice as many lives as it takes. Thousands of Russians and Ukrainians have already died just for this.”

UN Watch, an accredited non-governmental organization in Geneva, claims Bondarev has “defected.”

He singles out Sergey Lavrov, criticizing the Russian Foreign Minister for an increasing “level of lies and unprofessionalism in the work of the Foreign Ministry,” which he says have “become simply catastrophic.”

“Instead of unbiased information, impartial analysis and sober forecasting, there are propaganda clichés in the spirit of Soviet newspapers of the 1930s. A system has been built that deceives itself.”

Lavrov is perhaps best-known to Americans as one of the top Russian diplomats present in the Oval Office in 2017 when then-President Donald Trump gave them code word classified top secret intelligence, putting Israeli spies at risk, while celebrating his firing of FBI Director Jim Comey.

“Today,” Bondarev says, “the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is not about diplomacy. It is all about warmongering, lies and hatred. It serves interests of few, the very few people thus contributing to further isolation and degradation of my country.”

Bondarev told the Associated Press: “Am I concerned about the possible reaction from Moscow? I have to be concerned about it.”
