Devin Nunes predicts criminal referral delivery next week

Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif., predicted Tuesday he will likely make criminal referrals as part of an investigation into alleged political bias in the FBI and the Justice Department by the end of next week.

During an interview on Fox News, the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee said he is targeting “people who lied to Congress, perjury, criminal conspiracy.”

Noting that “will be hopefully by the end of next week,” Nunes said his team will work to “make as much public as possible.”

His most narrow prediction yet for his criminal referral delivery comes days after special counsel Robert Mueller concluded his nearly two-yearlong Russia investigation and sent his final report to the Justice Department.

Attorney General William Barr shared a summary of Mueller’s report to Congress on Sunday that said Mueller’s team found no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Mueller also declined to determine whether Trump obstructed justice, and Barr said he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein concluded there was insufficient evidence to show the president committed a crime.

Previously, Nunes had said he wanted to see what was in Mueller’s report before taking criminal referral action. Although Congress has not seen the full report, and Democrats are demanding its release within a week, a Justice Department official told Reuters Barr plans to make public a version of it within “weeks, not months.”

Nunes has not named anyone who could appear in a referral, but he has railed against what he says is collusion between the Democrats and the Russians, pointing to use of the unverified Trump dossier by the FBI to obtain warrants to spy on onetime Trump campaign official Carter Page as proof of an unraveling operation to undermine the president. That dossier, compiled by British ex-spy Christopher Steele, was funded in part by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

“What needs to happen is we need to have full transparency in this matter. Full transparency,” Nunes said Tuesday. “There was a lot of — the FBI and DOJ have claimed falsely that this investigation started in July 2016. That was a lie.”

“We need to know all the informants and everybody they were running into the Trump campaign because what happened here is wrong,” he added. “The FBI, the Department of Justice should not be able to use counterintelligence capabilities that are used to target terrorists and other bad guys around the globe against political parties. Republicans and Democrats should agree political opposition research from one candidate should not be used to let the nation’s top spy capabilities be used against political parties.”

Nunes has looked to Barr, who on Feb. 14 became attorney general, to make headway towards completing an investigation begun last year by a joint GOP-led task force comprising the Judiciary Committee and the Oversight Committee. Key to this effort, which has been bolstered by intelligence panel Republicans, is investigators looking over roughly 15 transcripts of interviews conducted by the task force last year.

House fails to overturn Trump’s veto on emergency declaration repeal

WASHINGTON —The House on Tuesday failed to override President Donald Trump’s veto of the Democratic measure to repeal his emergency declaration on the southern border.

House Democrats failed to overturn Trump’s veto in a 248-181 vote, falling short of the two-thirds majority required to overturn a presidential veto. The GOP-controlled Senate would also be unlikely to reach that threshold, with Republican leaders there showing no inclination to bring it up for a vote in any case.

The House vote comes nearly a month after the chamber passed a resolution to reverse the president’s border declaration in a 245-182 vote, with 13 Republicans joining Democrats in support of the measure. A few weeks later, the Senate also voted to repeal the emergency declaration in a 59-41 vote in which 12 Republicans joined Democrats to rebuke the president. Many GOP lawmakers who opposed the president’s declaration warned that it set a dangerous precedent for future presidents.

Trump ultimately vetoed the measure, the first one he issued during his presidency, rejecting the congressional effort. He called the veto “reckless” and a “vote against reality.” “He added that, “As president, the protection of the nation is my highest duty,”

House fails to override Trump’s veto of measure to terminate national emergency on border

Pentagon will have to reshuffle funds after $1B is approved for border wall

The House of Representatives failed to pass a resolution on Tuesday that would override President Trump’s first veto and let stand his declaration of a national emergency at the Mexican border.

The House voted 248-181 in favor of overriding the president’s veto and doing away with Trump’s emergency declaration – falling 38 votes short of the two-thirds majority needed to pass through the lower chamber of Congress. The measure passed mainly on party line with only 14 Republicans voting in favor of the veto override.

Trump’s emergency declaration drew unanimous opposition from congressional Democrats and opposition from some Republicans, especially in the Senate, where lawmakers objected that he was abusing presidential powers.

The Pentagon sent lawmakers a list last week of hundreds of military construction projects that might be cut to pay for barrier work. Though the list was tentative, Democrats were asserting that GOP lawmakers were endangering local bases to pay for the wall.

Congress, to which the Constitution assigned control over spending, voted weeks ago to provide less than $1.4 billion for barriers. Opponents warned that besides usurping Congress’ role in making spending decisions, Trump was inviting future Democratic presidents to circumvent lawmakers by declaring emergencies to finance their own favored initiatives.

Trump supporters said he was simply acting under a 1976 law that lets presidents declare national emergencies. Trump’s declaration was the 60th presidential emergency under that statute, but the first aimed at spending that Congress explicitly denied, according to New York University’s Brennan Center for Justice, which tracks the law.

Jussie Smollett hoax charges dropped, actor wants to ‘move on with my life’

'Empire' star Jussie Smollett's dropped case draws reactions from celebritiesVideo

‘Empire’ star Jussie Smollett’s dropped case draws reactions from celebrities

Celebrities were among the first to react after news broke that ‘Empire’ star Jussie Smollett will not be prosecuted by Cook County State Attorney’s Office for allegedly faking a hate crime. Donald Faison, Loni Love, Marsha Warfield, and Joshua Malina were among the celebrities voicing their reaction to the dropped charges on social media. It’s unclear at this time why the court decided not to proceed with the prosecution.

Calling himself a man of faith, “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett said Tuesday that he felt vindicated after a stunning reversal by the Cook County State Attorney’s Office to drop all charges against him in an alleged hate crime hoax.

Smollett was accused of faking an anti-black, anti-gay hate crime in Chicago in order to drum up publicity for his role on the Fox drama.

News of the dropped charges came as a surprise to Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Police Superintendant Eddie Johnson. Both men angrily pushed back angrily at the decision.

“From top to bottom, this is not on the level,” Emanuel told reporters at an afternoon news conference.

Jussie Smollett Exonerated! No Collusion!

Jussie Smollett (Photo by Chicago Police Department via Getty Images)

As Chicago police turned their sights on Jussie Smollett and mused that he probably staged the hate crime attack upon himself, Donald Trump used the Twitter machines to blast Smollett for making “racist and dangerous comments” about the risk of hate crimes in America, while Don Jr. retweeted every update that suggested Smollett was the real perpetrator of the crime against him.

This morning, the Chicago prosecutors who earlier secured a 16-count indictment against Smollett decided to drop all those charges and fully expunge his record. His attorneys released this statement:

“Today, all criminal charges against Jussie Smollett were dropped and his record has been wiped clean of the filing of this tragic complaint against him. Jussie was attacked by two people he was unable to identify on January 29th. He was a victim who was vilified and made to appear as a perpetrator as a result of false and inappropriate remarks made to the public causing an inappropriate rush to judgement.

Jussie and many others were hurt by these unfair and unwarranted actions. This entire situation is a reminder that there should never be an attempt to prove a case in the court of public opinion. That is wrong. It is a reminder that a victim, in this case Jussie, deserves dignity and respect. Dismissal of charges against the victim in this case was the only just result.

Jussie is relieved to have this situation behind him and is very much looking forward to getting back to focusing on his family, friends and career.”

One presumes that the Trumps will quickly and sincerely retract their comments and offer Smollett heartfelt support. After all, when a law enforcement official declines to go forward with a prosecution, that is the same as an exoneration. Certainly there will be some naysayers who will see the motion to seal the case that the judge granted as the makings of a cover-up, allowing someone to evade justice without allowing the public to scrutinize the investigative findings, but that’s just conspiracy theory talk!

The summary we’ve received from the lawyers in this case assuring us that there’s no need to go forward are the only proof we need. I’m sure we can all agree on this.
