Feds Investigating Comey Over Leak Tied To Hillary Investigation, Report Says

from True Pundit:

Federal law enforcement officials are reportedly investigating whether disgraced former FBI Director James Comey illegally leaked classified information about a Russian intelligence document to reporters.

“Law enforcement officials are scrutinizing at least two news articles about the F.B.I. and Mr. Comey, published in The New York Times and The Washington Post in 2017, that mentioned the Russian government document, according to the people familiar with the investigation,” The New York Times reported. “Hackers working for Dutch intelligence officials obtained the document and provided it to the F.B.I., and both its existence and the collection of it were highly classified secrets, the people said.”

‘Never Trump’ Group with Ties to Soros Runs Ads Urging GOP Senators to ‘Let Bolton Testify’ in Trump Senate Trial

by Shane Trejo, Big League Politics:

This astroturfed front is working on behalf of the Democrats.

A Soros-funded Never Trump group, the Republicans for the Rule of Law, is agitating aggressively on behalf of the Democrats’ impeachment efforts in the Senate.

They are running an advertisement campaign on “Fox & Friends” and “Lou Dobbs Tonight” to urge a Republican audience to push their Senators to support bringing up witnesses in the Senate impeachment trial. For some strange reason, the Fox News and Fox Business channels are allowing the ads to run on their networks.

If Promoting Wealth Inequality and Social Breakdown Is Evil, The Fed Is Evil

by Charles Hugh Smith, Of Two Minds:

The Fed will destroy the nation by widening the wealth/income inequality that is breaking down the nation’s social order.

President Reagan was widely mocked in America when he declared the Soviet Union an evil empire, but this calling things by their real name had a profound impact in the Eastern Bloc. The mockery stemmed from the secularized American view that there was precious little moral difference between the USSR and the US, that the USSR was a legitimate “alternative system,” and that ramping up Cold war tensions was not just dangerous but useless, as the USSR was as permanent (or more so) than the US.

SWAMP STENCH: The FBI deep state is hard at work trying to bury the Burisma evidence that incriminates Joe Biden and the Obama administration

by JD Heyes, via The Common Sense Show:

Most American foreign policy experts and diplomats know that Ukraine is a deeply corrupt country and has been for decades since the breakup of the Soviet Union — not that Moscow’s Communist government was much better.

With that said, its new president, Volodymyr Zelensky is in the same vein as President Donald Trump: He, too, wants to “drain the swamp” and rid his government of the grifters, the skimmers, and the ‘deep state’ types who are working daily to undermine the legitimate government.

The Repo Market Continues to Fester, Fed Considers Overhaul – Nathan McDonald

by Nathan McDonald, Sprott Money:

All we have heard about for the past couple of weeks is the ongoing conflict between the United States and Iran—and the dire outcomes that situation may lead to. And for good reason: it is a true threat to the stability of our global economy in the short to medium term, and sadly, many good, innocent people have already lost their lives.

However, another sinister situation has continued to unfold behind the scenes, taking a backseat to the immediate threat at our doorstep. I’m speaking of the ongoing crisis in the repo markets.

If you thought this complete and utter mess was magically fixed by the Federal Reserve dumping bucketloads of money on top of it, you were horribly mistaken. In fact, the repo market crisis has continued to fester.

“We Need A Full Investigation”: Bannon Accuses Pelosi, Schiff And MSM Of Colluding On 11th Hour Impeachment Bombshells

from ZeroHedge:

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon has called for a full investigation into coordination between Congressional Democrats and members of the media, after articles of impeachment against President Trump appear to have been deliberately ‘slow walked’ in order to coincide with two ‘bombshell’ developments in the Ukraine story.

Why did they time this? Why did they wait?” asked Fox Business host Trish Regan.

“First off, Rachel Maddow should be a witness of fact now. She should be brought in,” replied Bannon – referring to the seemingly coordinated media blitz surrounding Lev Parnas, an indicted former Rudy Goiliani associate whose undated, hand-written notes appear to support the claim that President Trump pressured Ukraine into investigating Joe Biden for corruption.

“WINE” with Nader, Epstein & The Clintons

by Corey Lynn, Corey’s Digs:

George Nader just plead guilty to child pornography charges, and his ‘statement of facts’ contains key information that resembles other child predator cases. Corey takes you through his plea deal and how it may connect to his other indictment for funneling over $3.5 million in foreign campaign funds to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign. She touches on other reports she’s done on Nader involving connections to numerous elites and key figures, leading into the Clintons and on to Jeffrey Epstein – with recent updates in his case – including just released photos by Dr. Michael Baden on Epstein’s eyes and lack of lividity in his lower limbs, which is precisely what Corey had previously pointed out in her report on Epstein’s death.
