What the media ISN’T telling you about Gen Kelly, Rob Porter, ex-wives and the FBI

So whose job is it to investigate potential members of the White House staff? The FBI or the president’s Chief-of-Staff?

One would think it’s the FBI’s job to do all that investigation stuff. Especially now that the Rob Porter accusations of spousal abuse of both his ex-wives has somehow mutated into this somehow being Gen. Kelly’s fault.

Suffice it to say that CNN is calling for John Kelly’s head on a plate.

Just look at what passes for news over at CNN since this latest fake scandal broke:

Even a clip of Andrew Cuomo gleefully hoping that Gen. Kelly is complicit in a scandal… any scandal.



However, the never-a-friend-to-the-Deep-State news site The Intercept is reporting;

As the FBI conducted a background check on an incoming senior White House official last year, the bureau learned of the man’s history of domestic abuse. Rob Porter, a top aide to President Donald Trump, physically assaulted both of his previous wives, according to the two women.

The Intercep article continued with;

During the background interviews for Porter’s security clearance related to his senior White House role, FBI agents interviewed the two women. The former wives told the FBI that Porter was abusive during their marriages, according to interviews with the women.

Then there’s this blip of truth from NBC News (probably printed by mistake);

In another interview with NBC News on Thursday, Willoughby [one of Porter’s ex-wives] said she informed the FBI during a background check interview for his security clearance that Porter had been abusive toward her.

“During the FBI background interview for security clearance, I shared with the FBI all of the details that I shared in previous articles, including access to a protective order from June of 2010, and police calls that I had made to our home,” she told NBC News’ Kristen Welker.

“I shared with them the details of my marriage the same as I have been in the interviews and articles that have come out.”

Willoughby also said she thought it was possible that Porter could be blackmailed about the alleged abuse in response to a question from the FBI.

Two closing thoughts:

  1. It’s not Kelly’s responsibility to investigate potential staff.
  2. It would be illegal for the FBI to disclose the finding of their investigation of Porter to Kelly or anyone else for that matter.

Toothless Congress Threatens Swampers w/ Worthless Contemp Charges

Devin-Nunes

At least California Congressman Devin Nunes is actually trying to make the system work.

But if history has taught us anything, a Contempt of Congress charge levied against you (especially if you’re a Hillary-supporter backer) is about as threatening as a Cockapoo happily greeting you at the front door.

And yes, I’m referring to the completely useless 2012 Contempt of Congress resolution that went after ex-Attorney General Eric Holder regarding his “stonewalling” the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform as they investigated the Obama Administration’s failed Operation Fast and Furious.

Perhaps proving that everything old is new again, the Daily Caller is reporting that Rep. Nunes, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, has instructed Committee staff to begin drawing up a Contempt of Congress resolution against Department of Justice Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray.

Nunes set a Monday deadline for the DOJ and FBI to comply with the committee’s list of demands, which includes requests for interviews with Rosenstein, Wray, and deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe as well as documents related to the anti-Trump dossier written by former British spy Christopher Steele.

Committee Republicans have tried in vain for months to force the DOJ and FBI to provide details of the Russia investigation, including how much it relied on the uncorroborated dossier to form the basis of its probe.



But the final straw for Nunes appears to be the bombshell revelation that FBI counterintelligence official Peter Strzok was kicked off of Mueller’s team over the summer after it was discovered that he exchanged anti-Trump text messages with his mistress, an FBI lawyer named Lisa Page who also worked on Mueller’s team.

Page, the lawyer who exchanged the texts with Strzok, worked under McCabe at the FBI.

Committee Republicans have issued subpoenas to Wray and Rosenstein — first on Aug. 24 — in an attempt to force the two to provide information about how the FBI and DOJ handled the Steele dossier, which was commissioned by opposition research firm Fusion GPS and funded by the Clinton campaign and DNC.

In case you’re wondering whatever happened to Holder and his contempt charge, that died a whimpering death.

After a 19-month review, Holder was cleared by… wait for it, Holder’s own Department of Justice’s office of the Inspector General.

Prefaced with Donald Trump placing the blame of Hillary Clinton’s woes directly at the feet of Hillary Clinton, Fox News Channel’s Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Tucker Carlson uncovered the curious understanding (or misunderstanding as the case may be) of the law by Democrat bigwig Martin O’Malley.

Cartwright pleads guilty to lying to the FBI…

According to the official directions of HQMC (Headquarters Marine Corps), the core values of every single person who wears the Eagle, Globe and Anchor are honor, courage and commitment.

Specifically falling under honor, it’s further defined that no Marine will ever “lie, cheat, or steal.”

Unfortunately, retired General James E. Cartwright seems to have forgotten those very simple truths. Either that, or he never believed in them to begin with. Continue reading Rotten to the Corps: ‘Obama’s Favorite General’ Pleads Guilty

As everyone already knows, the FBI has spent the last year investigating Hillary Clinton’s home-brewed email server for any possible illegalities. Such things as if she ever lied about sending classified information via her unauthorized server were of particular scrutiny. Or so we’re told.

Kansas sheriff folds to pressure from pro-Muslim group

“In most cases, when you attack people, you back down, but I am a Marine.” – John Guandolo

In what has recently surfaced as an accusation of law enforcement agencies in Kansas officially sanctioning a “notorious anti-Muslim conspiracy theorist” to conduct a training seminar has bore fruit for a national Muslim advocacy group. As reported by the Associated Press via the Connecticut Post on May 24, 2014, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has won a major victory in their opposition to the counter-terrorism consultation, training, and educational organization Understanding the Threat from conducting a two-day seminar.
