Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) repeatedly attempted to interrupt the committee chairman in an effort to stall the hearings. When he didn’t give her floor time, Harris proceeded to talk over him.

    FBI Disputes Claim That DOJ Used Leaked Stories It Planted To Get FISA Warrants

    An FBI agent reportedly told Congress behind closed doors the feds used the stories to justify spying on the Trump campaign.

    UPDATE: The FBI is disputing claims that the bureau leaked information to news media and then used those same stories in their applications to obtain a warrant to surveil members of the Trump campaign throughout the 2016 election.

    An earlier version of a story published by the Daily Caller News Foundation reported that FBI Special Agent Jonathan Moffa told members of the House Judiciary and House Oversight Committees in a closed-door session on Friday that “the FBI/DOJ have previously leaked info to the press and then used stories from the press as justifications for FISA warrants.” READ MORE...

  • Why Reading Jane Austen Is Essential To Understanding Virtue And Vice

    Why Reading Jane Austen Is Essential To Understanding Virtue And Vice

    Virtues like courage and moderation are character traits that reveal themselves when one is faced with great adversity or great pleasure.

    In the first lecture of Hillsdale College’s free online Young Jane Austen course (which you can take along with me here), Larry Arnn explains why it’s important to study literature in order to understand the nature of mankind.

    History and Literature Explain Aspects of Human Nature

    In Jane Austen’s works “Pride and Prejudice” and “Sense and Sensibility” events unfold through the perspective of young women who learn about the natures of vice and virtue as they study and contemplate the characters of those around them in order to triumph over their own adversities. In both of these works, circumstances reveal aspects of the characters — which indicates Austen herself spent a great deal of time reflecting on what characteristics made men, and women, great or disappointing.

  • Federal Judge Denies CNN Request To Dox Jurors In Manafort Trial

    Federal Judge Denies CNN Request To Dox Jurors In Manafort Trial

    U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis has denied a motion members of the media filed to reveal the identities and home addresses of the members of the jury on the trial involving former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.

    “I don’t feel right if I release their names,” he said, adding that he has also faced threats for his role in the trial, according to The Hill.

    Ellis also denied the media’s request to make sealed sidebar transcripts public, although he added that much of those transcripts will be made public after the trial. Ellis explained that one aspect of the transcripts will remain sealed so as not to interfere with Department of Justice Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation into whether Trump campaign officials colluded with Russian officials to steal the presidency from Hillary Clinton.

    Sen. Bill Nelson Admits He Has No Evidence Of 2018 Election Hacking

    Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson claimed the Florida voting system had been compromised by Russians, but now he’s backpedaling that claim.

    Last week, Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson claimed that the Florida voting system had been compromised by Russians leading up to the 2018 elections. But on Tuesday, the Florida senator distanced himself from his earlier claim, blaming the political climate for his inconsistent statements.

    Last month, Nelson and Republican Sen. Marco Rubio co-authored a letter they sent to 67 county election supervisors within the state, urging them to be vigilant and warning them of potential threats in November. This letter did not state that voting systems had been “penetrated” by the Russians, as Nelson claimed last week. READ MORE...

    CNN Sued The Government For Names, Addresses Of Manafort Jurors

    The anti-Trump cable news network has a long history of doxxing threats and harassment.

    In a motion filed in federal court on Thursday, CNN and several other media outlets requested that the court release the names and home addresses of all jurors in the Paul Manafort fraud case. Jurors haven not yet rendered a verdict on any of the 18 charges against Manafort, who briefly served as President Donald Trump’s campaign manager in 2016.

    The motion — filed on behalf of CNN, Washington Post, BuzzFeed, POLITICO, New York Times, NBC Universal, and the Associated Press — asks the court to provide to the media organizations the full names and home addresses of the men and women who were summoned and selected by the federal government to serve as jurors in Manafort’s fraud case.
