Andrew McCabe, a senior bureau official, provided the alarming evidence in a “60 Minutes” interview, writes John Kiriakou.
Former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, in an explosive interview with CBS’s “60 Minutes,” said that in early 2017, in the aftermath of President Donald Trump’s firing of former FBI Director James Comey, he and other FBI officials discussed the possibility of recruiting a cabinet secretary to help push the president out of office by using the Constitution’s 25thAmendment

Trump could not have become America’s President if he had not won the “vote” of his nation’s second-largest political donor in 2016, casinos-owner Sheldon Adelson.
In publicly recorded donations, as of 25 December 2018, Adelson and his wife donated $82,522,800 to Republican candidates in 2016, and this amount doesn’t include any of the secret money. Of that sum, it’s virtually impossible to find out how much went specifically to Trump’s campaign for President, but, as of 9 May 2017, the Adelsons were publicly recorded as having donated $20.4 million to Trump’s campaign. Their impact on the Presidential contest was actually much bigger than that, however, because even the Adelsons’ non-Trump-campaign donations went to the Republican Party, and the rest went to Republican pro-Trump candidates, and the rest went to Republican PACS — and, so, a large percentage (if not all) of that approximately $60 million non-Trump-campaign political expenditure by the Adelsons was boosting Trump’s Presidential vote.

When Hillary Clinton decided to walk out on a stage and label Republican voters that supported the then-candidate Donald Trump as “Deplorables,” two things happened simultaneously.
The First – Trump supporters embraced the label, started adding it to their online user names, ordering clothing that said ‘Deplorable,’ or ‘I’m Proud To Be A ‘Deplorable‘, or ‘Proud Member of The Basket of Deplorables,’ just to name a few, while Candidate Trump folded the label right into his campaign at rallies with a huge sign behind him that said “Les Deplorables.”
The Second – The media was handed an enemy, not just the Republican candidate for president, but his supporters. The media allowed people to come on to their shows and call Trump supporters “rapists,” “racists,” “Nazis,” “white supremacists,” and a whole host of other deragotory names, as the media jumped on any and all stories that reflected badly on those “Deplorables.”

The same networks that spent 2,202 minutes of collective airtime to push the Russia Collusion Media-Hoax are refusing to cover the Senate Intelligence Committee bipartisan report, which found no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
The Media Research Center (MRC) did the research and found that between January 21, 2017, and February 10, 2019, “ABC’s World News Tonight, the CBS Evening News, and the NBC Nightly News [spent] 2,202 minutes on the Russia investigation [, which] accounted for nearly 19 percent of all Trump-related reporting [, and now] none of those three shows have even mentioned the investigation since NBC’s report came out on February 12.”

Two progressive New York City Council Democrats, one who is currently in office and another who recently departed office, are being accused of bullying and harassing an autistic staffer in a lawsuit that has been filed against one of the alleged offenders and the city.
Michael Bistreich is a former staffer of Vincent Gentile, who served on the NYC council representing the 43rd district from 2003-2017. According to an affidavit obtained exclusively by The Schpiel, he was routinely mocked, harassed, underpaid, told to drug himself, and otherwise exploited while employed in Gentile’s office. During one particularly cruel instance, Bistreich was locked in a basement as apart of some demented prank while Gentile’s chief-of-staff John Mancuso cackled about torturing the man.
The top brass of the Obama FBI went to great lengths to justify their decision not to recommend charges against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information, according to Judicial Watch, which obtained evidence that the agency created a ‘chart’ of Clinton’s offenses.
The newly obtained emails came in response to a court ordered Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request that the DOJ had previously ignored.
