President Trump: “It is now just a question of time before the truth comes out, and when it does, it will be a beauty!”…

 President Trump notes pending discoveries of the political surveillance and spy operations undeniably evident in the margins of the larger 2016 election story.

President Trump can prove the July 31st, 2016, Crossfire Hurricane counterintelligence operation originated from a scheme within the intelligence apparatus by exposing the preceding CIA operation that created the originating "Electronic Communication" memo.

Release the August 2nd, 2017, two-page scope memo provided by DAG Rod Rosenstein to special counsel Robert Mueller to advance the fraudulent Trump investigation, and initiate the more purposeful obstruction of justice investigation.

The amount of inside pressure on President Trump to stay away from this approach will come from all three branches of government.

I suspect every measure of outside leverage and inside influence is currently advising President Trump not to declassify and/or release these documents.

It's doubtful President Trump wants his legacy to be based on the collapse of others.

President Trump's life of affluence and influence is not dependent on a perpetuating DC system of mutually beneficial scheme and graft.

John Brennan must be held accountable for his role in advancing the Russia hoax

The president has been exonerated on allegations of Russian collusion, and now, as investigators and the media pick up the pieces on the long-running hoax, more attention has turned to the major players behind the operation, including former CIA chief and current NBC "Analyst" John Brennan, who played an integral role in the launch of the unprecedented surveillance operation - and the smear campaign thereafter - against the president, members of the Trump campaign, and Trump-connected individuals.

In March, citing a "High-level source," Sen. Rand Paul said that Brennan "Insisted that the unverified and fake Steele dossier" be included in the ICA. BREAKING: A high-level source tells me it was Brennan who insisted that the unverified and fake Steele dossier be included in the Intelligence Report Brennan should be asked to testify under oath in Congress ASAP. - Senator Rand Paul March 27, 2019.

Brennan's efforts to promulgate the Russia hoax did not stop when he left government.

Since departing his post at the Central Intelligence Agency, Brennan has essentially dedicated his life and career to attempting to chip away at President Trump's duly elected mandate to serve in the nation's highest office.

On television and in prominent legacy media publications, Brennan establishes his bona fides as a former insider with secret information and a trusted voice of authority on the Russia probe, given his experience in the upper echelons of the American intelligence apparatus.

John Brennan has a lot to answer for-going before the American public for months, cloaked with CIA authority and openly suggesting he's got secret info, and repeatedly turning in performances like this.

Upon the release of the Mueller report, which cleared the president of colluding with Russia, Brennan insisted that there was indeed "Much collusion with Russia yet insufficient evidence to to establish criminal conspiracy."

'It's about time to accept the results': Former AG Jeff Sessions speaks out on Mueller report

Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions told a crowd of college students in Massachusetts on Wednesday night that the conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the Trump campaign and Russia's election interference meant it was time to "Get on with the business of America."

President Donald Trump's former attorney general, who was fired in November, said Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in U.S. elections was "Carried out vigorously and with integrity."

Sessions said that while Congress does have its oversight powers, he believes it is time to accept that Mueller declined to recommend criminal charges against the president.

Top takeaways: Trump thought Mueller would 'end' his presidency and other takeaways from the Mueller report.

It wasn't a conspiracy, Mueller report says.

Justices Seem Ready to Ok Asking Citizenship on Census

Despite evidence that millions of Hispanics and immigrants could go uncounted, the Supreme Court's conservative majority seemed ready Tuesday to uphold the Trump administration's plan to inquire about U.S. citizenship on the 2020 census in a case that could affect American elections for the next decade.

There appeared to be a clear divide between the court's liberal and conservative justices in arguments in a case that could affect how many seats states have in the House of Representatives and their share of federal dollars over the next 10 years.

Three lower courts have so far blocked the plan to ask every U.S. resident about citizenship in the census, finding that the question would discourage many immigrants from being counted.

Two of the three judges also ruled that asking if people are citizens would violate the provision of the Constitution that calls for a count of the population, regardless of citizenship status, every 10 years.

"Why doesn't Congress prohibit the asking of the citizenship question?" Kavanaugh asked near the end of the morning session.

Census Bureau experts have concluded that the census would produce a more accurate picture of the U.S. population without a citizenship question because people might be reluctant to say if they or others in their households are not citizens.

The administration argues that the commerce secretary has wide discretion in designing the census questionnaire and that courts should not be second-guessing his action.

Giuliani Lashes Out At Clintons: You Are "America's Number One Crime Family"

As Democrats continue to back away from trying to impeach President Trump for obstruction of the Mueller probe which cleared him of the underlying charge of conspiring with Russia in the 2016 election, Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani is on the war path - and is now targeting Hillary Clinton.

Following Tuesday remarks by Clinton that Donald Trump would have been indicted if he weren't president, Giuliani hit back in a Wednesday tweet - writing: "I encourage Hillary to get very involved in the 2020 election. She blew the last one for the Dems," adding "She is working on a book called"How To Obstruct And Go Free." And the sequel will be "How My Husband Escaped" a perjury conviction.

Giuliani also appeared on Fox & Friends Wednesday, where he defended Trump - saying that Democrats "Had two investigations to prove it," referring to collusion; "The FBI counterintelligence investigation - in the words of Peter Strzok - 'no there there', and then this one," referring to the Mueller probe.

"How this ever got started in the first place is the next investigation," Giuliani said, adding that Hillary Clinton "Better get a lawyer."

Fox's Steve Doocy asked "She said that the reason he wasn't indicted is because there's a DOJ standing policy not to indict a sitting president," to which Giuliani replied: "There is - there used to be a DOJ standing policy, you cannot indict a Clinton no matter how much they obstruct justice, no matter how much evidence they destroy, no matter how often they lie, and no matter that they committed perjury. You can't indict a Clinton, it's against the Democrat Justice Department rules."

Giuliani referred to the investigation into Trump as a "Frame-up," with all the markings that "Rogue counterintelligence guys" setting up members of the Trump campaign.

Giuliani also mentioned Joe Biden's son - who made millions of dollars in Ukraine as his father got a top prosecutor investigating him fired.

Michael Cohen, in Recorded Phone Call, Walks Back Parts of Guilty Plea

In a recently recorded phone call, former Trump attorney Michael Cohen walked back parts of his guilty plea.

Michael Cohen has disavowed responsibility for some of the crimes to which he has pleaded guilty, privately contending in a recent recorded phone call that he hadn't evaded taxes and that a criminal charge related to his home-equity line of credit was "a lie." As he prepares to begin a three-year prison term on May 6, Mr. Cohen, President Trump's former lawyer, expressed dismay during the conversation that after testifying for more than 100 hours to federal and congressional investigators about his work for Mr. Trump-including the coordination of hush-money deals with two women-he remained "a man all alone."

"You would think that you would have folks, you know, stepping up and saying, 'You know what, this guy's lost everything,'" Mr. Cohen said during the March 25 call, recorded without Mr. Cohen's knowledge by the actor and comedian Tom Arnold.

Mr. Arnold, a vocal critic of President Trump who first made contact with Mr. Cohen in June, provided the recording to The Wall Street Journal for review.

"My family's happiness, and my law license," Mr. Cohen continued.

Mr. Cohen testified in February in the House of Representatives that Mr. Trump committed crimes, including directing the hush-money schemes during the 2016 presidential campaign involving the two women.

"I never directed Michael Cohen to break the law," Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter in December.

Beware Soros-Funded Hijacking of US Census

Only in self-defeating, sovereignty-eroding America is the idea of asking whether people living in America are American citizens for the American census a matter of controversy.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments on whether the Trump administration can include a citizenship question on the high-stakes 2020 Census questionnaire.

There's already such a question on the annual American Community Survey administered by the Census Bureau.

Remember: The Census is used to divvy up seats in the House as a proportion of their population based on the head count.

During the last census under President Barack Obama, with $300 billion in federal funding at stake, social justice groups from Soros-funded ACORN to Soros-funded Voto Latino to the Soros-allied SEIU were enlisted to count heads and help noncitizens feel "Safe."

A recently leaked internal board document revealed that the Soros network has coordinated efforts for the past four years to "Influence appropriations for the Census Bureau" and add new racial and ethnic categories.

The Census Bureau will need 500,000 temporary workers to conduct the count in what will already be a hyperpolarized election year.

Illegal Immigration Is Earning Billions For Smugglers

The report, conducted by the Homeland Security Operational Analysis Center (HSOAC), which is operated by RAND, analyzed the black market for human smuggling in Central America, Mexico, and along the southern U.S. border in hopes of understanding how it works and how much money is going to drug cartels—or, in government parlance, transnational criminal organizations (TCOs).

Mueller's 'Scarlet Letter' Impeachment Road Map

Before a prosecutor considered evidence regarding that incident, there would be a preliminary question: Could the president's dismissal of an FBI director amount to an obstruction offense as a matter of law? If prosecutors were to decide that, even if the evidence showed corrupt intent on the part of the president, a president's firing of the FBI director cannot constitutionally amount to an obstruction crime, then the prosecutors would not bother to investigate and make an assessment of the evidence.

The most unsavory evidence of presidential misconduct came from the president's own White House counsel - meaning it could have been withheld not just from Congress and the public but also from Mueller on executive-privilege and attorney-client-privilege grounds.

Remember the Clinton emails investigation - recall how Mrs. Clinton inserted lawyers in her every activity, and then the Obama Justice Department dutifully tied the FBI's hands on the rationale that basic investigative steps would have risked transgressing attorney-client privilege? By contrast, the Trump White House and Barr did not assert privilege claims; as a result, testimony damaging to the president was freely given to the prosecutor and congressional Democrats.

As for the presidency, Mueller & Co. cite the power of the presidency to influence the executive branch and official proceedings; and the fact that many of the president's comments and acts took place in full public view.

As Trump himself said upon learning of Mueller's appointment, his presidency would be "Over." The president was completely unsuccessful in trying to influence subordinates to do his bidding; he dared not fire Mueller, despite ardently wishing to shut down what he called a "Witch hunt"; and his complaints about "Fake new" media, though successful in animating his base, equally animated the Democratic Party base.

In sum, contrary to Mueller's view of an all-powerful president, the president and his administration were paralyzed, unable to control events.

To expect that hardcore Democratic partisan prosecutors will divine a Republican president's motive without regard to their politics - especially at a time of what is arguably the worst partisan political divide since the Civil War - is to dwell in what Lady Thatcher called "Cloud Coo-Coo Land." Mueller and his comrades in prosecutorial arms have sewn on to Mr. Trump's vestments the scarlet letters "O.J." to signify obstruction of justice.

The walls are closing in on Obama

Judicial Watch announced today that a senior FBI official admitted, in writing and under oath, that the agency found Clinton email records in the Obama White House, specifically, the Executive Office of the President.

U.S District Court Judge Royce Lamberth ordered Obama administration senior State Department officials, lawyers, and Clinton aides, as well as Priestap, to be deposed or answer writer questions under oath.

Williams & Connolly LLP. Priestap also testifies that 48,982 emails were reviewed as a result of a warrant for Clinton email account information from the laptop of Anthony Weiner, who had been married to top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

Priestap testified in a separate lawsuit that Clinton was the subject of a grand jury investigation related to her BlackBerry email accounts.

"This astonishing confirmation, made under oath by the FBI, shows that the Obama FBI had to go to President Obama's White House office to find emails that Hillary Clinton tried to destroy or hide from the American people." said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

"No wonder Hillary Clinton has thus far skated - Barack Obama is implicated in her email scheme."
