Bodycam Advocates Now Claim Body Cameras Are A ‘Threat To Civil Rights’

A civil rights group released a study that says bodycams can alter the way a police officer writes a report.
Washington, DC – Civil rights advocates demanded accountability from law enforcement agencies through the use of bodycams in the wake of the Ferguson riots.

One at a time, police departments nationwide have implemented bodycams, at considerable expense, to satisfy their critics and provide more “transparency” in law enforcement.

The result? A new report from The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights said that bodycams pose a “threat to civil rights.”

The report, “The Illusion of Accuracy: How Body-Worn Camera Footage Can Distort Evidence,” was released on Tuesday, according to Newsweek.

A big concern listed in the report is an officer’s ability to watch the footage whenever they want, including before they write incident reports.

“Unrestricted footage review places civil rights at risk and undermines the goals of transparency and accountability,” Vanita Gupta, current leader of the Leadership Conference, said,

Gupta is a civil rights attorney, former ACLU director, and former acting assistant attorney general of the civil rights division under former President Obama.

The report claimed that an officer’s memory of an event may be altered by watching bodycam video footage, and reports written by the officer about the incident would then also be altered.

The problem appears to be that defense attorneys can’t pick at minor differences between an officer’s memory and what’s recorded on video.

“Video’s power to improve policing lies in the fact it makes us all eyewitness to police-civilian interactions, ranging from tragic shootings to more quotidian but nonetheless disturbing stop-and-frisks, which are common and … often unconstitutional,” the Washington Post said in an opinion column.

“Video provides compelling evidence of police misconduct and can be used to train, discipline, fire and even prosecute officers. It’s also a potent tool for exonerating officers falsely accused of misconduct. Ultimately, the aim is avoiding illegal, inappropriate police-civilian interactions, because everyone involved acts differently knowing a camera is rolling,” they wrote.

Civil rights groups don’t have a problem with bodycam footage until it’s used to exonerate a police officer, or shows that suspects and victims have threatened police, or behaved badly during a recorded incident.

At that point, bodycams become a threat to civil and constitutional rights, according to Gupta’s assessment.

The Leadership Conference, in its report, called for police departments to institute “a clean reporting policy” where an officer would write an initial report before viewing the footage.

Some policing experts, such as Lance LoRusso, disagree.

LoRusso, a former police officer and current Atlanta attorney who represents police officers, said that police officers should view the body-cam footage before writing a report.

“This specter that every time an officer looks at the video they’re going to lie and adapt their statement just is infuriating because we want the officers to write the most accurate report they can,” he said.

Since one major purpose of bodycam footage is to keep all parties involved honest and “transparent,” the Leadership Conference’s one-sided approach doesn’t make any sense.

Democrats Come After Trump With Whole New Collusion Story…This Time, They Took it Too Far

Democrats fall among the most conniving group of politicians America has ever come across. I mean, the extents to which they go just to get their way is simply out of this world. 

The Washington Examiner now released a report, stating Democrat Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal commented how President Donald Trump is colluding not with Russia, as some would thus far speculate, but with China as well.

Blumenthal explained that a Chinese bank that rents an office at the Trump Tower in New York is doing so illegally since there is no permission from Congress on it. This, as he states, could ultimately hurt Trump’s political image.

“To be really blunt, an arm of the Chinese government is paying President Trump’s rent for his building, and last year as you all know China granted President Trump 40 trademarks,” the Connecticut Democrat stated via a conference call.

“These approvals of trademarks closely followed the president’s abrupt decision as president to honor the One-China Policy, a reversal of his earlier position,” he said. “Shortly after receiving those trademark registrations, President Trump flip-flopped on labeling China a currency manipulator.”

“As he travels to China, we’re left wondering, Americans are left wondering if President Trump is representing American interests or his own, and which he’s going to put first,” he said.

Blumenthal has been very outspoken about how Trump is violating the Foreign Emoluments Clause and doesn’t have the Congress’ approval to have foreign-government tenants. Aside from the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, the Trump Tower also rents space to the Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority.

Blumenthal encouraged over two hundred Democratic lawmakers to sign his lawsuit against Trump, which says “no person holding any office of profit or trust under them, shall, without the consent of the Congress, accept of any present, emolument, office, or title, of any kind whatever, from any king, prince, or foreign state.”

Cornell law professor and conservative blogger William Jacobson explained how, “In a rational world, this lawsuit would have zero chance of success,” while former House of Representatives senior legal counsel Michael Stern said Blumenthal’s narrative is quite general, asking, “If it is that easy to receive an ’emolument,’ how is it that this issue has never come up before?”

Blumenthal may have put himself under fire, as People’s Daily newspaper is, interestingly enough, a tenant in the Empire State Building, managed by none else but Blumenthal’s wife.

He even tried justifying this by saying that he and not his wife own parts of the shares.

Then, it became obvious the conference call wasn’t going to end well. Namely, Blumenthal dropped the call before he would get into the Q&A section of the matter.

A moderator on the Constitutional Accountability Center call was not willing to let experts analyze if Blumenthal is a violator of the rule himself.

“The focus of this call is on the president and the lawsuit against him for his patent violations of the Foreign Emoluments Clause,” the moderator said.

If this doesn’t scream liberal nonsense to you, then I don’t know what will.

LOL! BLACK LIVES MATTER TWEETS OUT ANTI-TRUMP POLL, BUT DELETES IT AFTER BACKFIRING MASSIVELY

trump blm tweet

President Trump frequently uses his Twitter account to gain direct feedback from his followers—and while the media is quick to attack him for this, Black Lives Matter actually went one step further. They created their own poll, in an attempt to smear President Trump, but after it backfired so massively, they ended up having to delete it.

One of the major reasons why Donald Trump was elected President of the United States is that he’s not out of touch with the common people. No leader before him has used social media with such frequency that he can keep up with the wants and needs of the people 24/7, and the media hates it.

The liberal news outlets understand that Twitter is now making their job redundant, because when you can hear direct news from the President himself, nobody is going to want to hear CNN’s talking heads give their slanted bias while playing a bunch of selectively edited news clips.

Black Lives Matter recently jumped on the anti-Trump Twitter bandwagon as well, urging their followers to take a poll they created. The poll asked whether people approve of disapprove of President Trump’s job performance, and hilariously enough, here were the results:

Black Lives Matter, the racist left wing activist group, very quickly realized that their ivory tower view of reality didn’t actually exist—so rather than confronting the truth, they did what all good liberals do. They stuck their head in the sand and deleted any and all evidence that contradicted their viewpoint.

The truth is that most Americans support President Trump, but thanks to a very vocal and aggressive minority of liberal lunatics, we’ve been too afraid to come out. Trump supporters are frequently labeled as hateful and racist individuals, when in reality it’s actually the left that’s far worse.

This poll exposes the truth however, and it doesn’t matter how many #BLM activists scream and shout about white privilege, and it doesn’t matter how many millions of dollars they get in “donations” from liberal billionaire George Soros. The people support President Trump, and we’re going to make America great again whether you like it or not.

If you approve of President Trump’s actions and want to help make America great again, please give this article a share! Thank you and God bless.

SECOND WOMAN ACCUSES SEN. AL FRANKEN OF ‘CREEPY BEHAVIOR,’ INCLUDING STALKING

Al Franken

A second woman has come forward to make accusations against Democratic Senator Al Franken of disturbing behavior.

Melanie Morgan, a radio talk show host and founder of both MediaEqualizer.com and the Media Equality Project, says Franken stalked her and displayed “creepy behavior” after she appeared with him on ABC’s “Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher” in 2000.

According to Morgan, Franken seemed obsessed with her on the set of the show, after the two clashed in an on-air debate. Afterward, Franken began calling her at home, only to stop after Morgan threatened to contact the authorities.

Franken is already under fire after broadcaster and former model Leeann Tweeden accused him of sexual assault. Some have called for Franken to resign his Senate seat, and a congressional investigation has been ordered.

Here are details of the encounter from Morgan’s website, MediaEqualizer.com:

Morgan, who was a ABC Radio talk show host for KSFO in San Francisco at the time, appeared August 19, 2000 on ABC’s late night show Politically Incorrect.

She was joined by Franken, William Baldwin, and then-Colorado Lt. Governor Joe Rogers on the panel.
Morgan and Franken had a dispute over the OMB’s budget numbers.

“I was invited and unaware of who his guests were going to be that night. I’ve since learned that though few know this, Al Franken was actually a writer for the show,” Morgan said.

“I made a statement about the budget numbers, Franken challenged me, I challenged him back. It was about spending priorities, actually just a mundane discussion. But he obsessed over it.”

After the show, Morgan said Franken wouldn’t leave her alone, insisting on continuing the argument.

“He approached me backstage, angrily called me out on those numbers and insisted he would prove he was right. He wouldn’t leave me alone, he kept following me. As a woman, his presence and proximity to me felt very threatening and intimidating.

“I didn’t realize his creepy behavior after the show meant it would continue in the days to come.

“He approached Carol, the show’s producer and demanded my home phone number, which was a clear violation of network protocol. I had thought that was the end of the story and was shocked when he started calling my home, badgering me repeatedly.

“I became fearful and called Carol to complain and asked her to tell him to back off. But he made another call after that. I thought that he might end up stalking me at my home in Northern California, it was that bad.

“By the third phone call I was outraged and terrified, as he is really disturbed,” Morgan recounted.

Morgan said Franken finally left her alone, but only after she pushed back and threatened to call the police.

To this day, she says she is haunted by it: “I never forgot that experience and it informed me of his lack of character and obsessive personality. I believe every word Leann wrote.”

With many calling on Republican Alabama U.S. Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore to step aside following claims of sexual misconduct from decades ago, will Franken be asked to resign as senator?

“I will happily testify before the Senate Ethics Committee, should a hearing be held regarding Franken’s behavior,” Morgan added.

We will update this story as more details come available.

EXPOSED: TRUMP SLASHES GOVT SPENDING, UNCOVERS $90 BILLION OBAMA STASHED AWAY FOR ‘DIRTY LITTLE SECRET’

obama 90 billion obamacare trump slash spending

President Trump has been clashing with both Democrats and Republicans in his pursuit to ‘repeal and replace’ Obamacare, but it seems that he’s found other ways to achieve his goal. After slashing expenditures to the bloated healthcare bill however, it was discovered that a whopping $90 billion was being quietly funneled elsewhere.

Trump has faced ample resistance from both the left and the right, in his quest to repeal and replace Obamacare—even members of the GOP such as John McCain and Rand Paul have voted against the bill, each having their own separate reasons.

McCain claimed that a bi-partisan healthcare bill was the problem in the first place, and that simply passing one that only Republicans liked wouldn’t solve anything. Rand Paul, being a libertarian, stated that we shouldn’t replace Obamacare at all—in fact, he believes we should let the private sector handle healthcare.

President Trump eventually grew tired of Congress and their inability to pass any meaningful legislation, so he began signing executive orders to defund critical components of Obamacare. In the process however, it’s been discovered that a $90 billion discrepancy has likely been stolen from taxpayers and funneled into Obamacare.

According to Daily Caller, President Trump has rolled back funding for a key program intended to help people navigate Obamacare, he’s signed an executive order to increase competition for insurance companies across state lines, and he’s even stopped federal funding for Obamacare subsidies.

Over the course of his first nine months in office, he rolled back funding for a program intended to help individuals navigate the insurance marketplace, signed an executive order to allow for groups to purchase insurance across state lines and stopped federal funding for Obamacare subsidies.

Taken in tandem, it appears the administration is working to overhaul the American health care system without the help of Congress, a body that has failed a handful of times to repeal and replace Obamacare during the first months of Trump’s presidency.

Each of these actions has a significant impact on the viability of the current health care system.

However there’s still a massive source that’s been funding Obamacare, and it’s been largely hidden from the American public. Allen B. West, former US Representative, author, Army Lieutenant Colonel, and political commentator, reports that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have been quietly funding the Treasury at the expense of the US citizens.

If Trump truly wants to deal the coup de grâce to Obamacare, there’s still a massive source of funding for the law that Barack Obama deceptively implemented, and it relates to the one last piece of unfinished business from the past financial crisis: the status of mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Having required massive bailouts in 2008, the two corporations were placed under control of the U.S. Treasury.  Initially, the two organizations agreed to pay the Treasury a dividend each year equivalent to 10 percent of the bailout funds they took, and the Treasury was also issued warrants granting them the equivalent of a 79.9 percent equity stake in the two companies.

Since the two giants recovered faster than expected and became profitable, the Obama administration saw better returns in seizing the profits of Fannie and Freddie instead.

Since 2012, every quarter, the two giants have been sending 100 percent of their profits to the Treasury, rewarding the Treasury handsomely.

Despite the fact that taxpayers bailed out Fannie and Freddie to the tune of $187.5 billion, the Federal government has been paid back $275.8 billion thus far — or nearly $90 billion in excess of that figure.

And what have the funds been used for? Our current Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin has already admitted what many had speculated: that the funds were being used to fund Obamacare.

What’s worse however, is that this could end up severely harming US taxpayers the time we need our cash the most. Due to Freddie and Fannie having their profits confiscated by the leftover Obama administration, they can never retain any cash reserves of their own.

Therefore, once we hit an economic recession and the banks become unprofitable, the American taxpayer will have to foot the bill. While some have argued that Obama did what was necessary in order to revive our struggling economy, others have argued that the free market is far more efficient at regulating economies than any government.

Many conservatives have urged President Trump to eliminate this risk to taxpayers, by issuing an executive order to the treasury, telling them to sell their $100 billion stake in Freddie and Fannie. That same $100 billion that’s been funding fat cats, could be used to rebuild infrastructure, empower our military, or even fund the wall.

After the economic collapse of 2008, millions of Americans, both Democrats and Republicans, grew furious with the banksters. They’d largely caused the recession by lending out substandard mortgages, and then they were bailed out by the very own taxpayers who they hurt the most.

Whether you’re for Trump or against Trump, you can’t deny that our government would be better off cutting all ties with Freddie and Fannie.

What do you think? Should President Trump slash all ties with Freddie and Fannie, or allow them to continue funding Obamacare? Let us know your thoughts!

WATCH: WELFARE QUEEN MOCKS US TAXPAYERS, FEEDS LOBSTER TO HER DOG (VIDEO)

welfare queen lobster

A disgusting video of a welfare queen bragging about how smart she is for avoiding taxes and living off of other peoples’ hard work has recently started to go viral. What’s infuriating most people isn’t even her bragging, or her feeding Red Lobster to her dog…it’s what she used to buy with her EBT card just a few weeks ago.

Thanks to the past eight years of Obama, the government assistance programs in this country have gotten completely out of control. We now have lazy, selfish bums walking around with EBT cards buying steak, caviar, and luxury items, all because of other peoples’ hard work.

One welfare queen however, has been infuriating millions of Americans both left and right alike—in the following video, she films herself going to Red Lobster and purchasing some live lobster, worth around $45 per pound. She then proceeds to say it disgusts her, and brag about how she’s going to feed it to her dog.

“I just bought it for the fucking video, I don’t want this shit disgusts me. I used to like lobster, but I can’t eat it now—I went and I bought a fucking live lobster with my food stamps. Why are you allowed to buy a live lobster with your food stamps? So I picked out the biggest, fucking juiciest one,” she says.

Then, she goes on to brag about how the cashier likely had to work “an hour and a fuckin’ half” to pay for that lobster she just bought. “This is an hour and a half of her time, for me to buy this so I can make a fuckin’ YouTube video,” she adds. “These peoples’ taxes paid for this.”

As if this wasn’t enough, she goes on to taunt taxpayers further. “They can barely afford to fucking feed themselves, and their taxes are going for people to buy fucking lobster with their food stamps.” This welfare queen then goes on to mock the cashier for having a flip phone.

“She’s got a fucking flip phone, it probably gets shut off all the time because she can’t even afford to pay her bill,” she says, revealing that the government gave her a free smart phone–worth something like $850—under Obama. Then, she really steps out of line.

“These are my coach key chains here,” she says bragging about her luxury brand key chains. “This is my coach key chains, these three key chains here they cost more than those minimum wage peoples’ fuckin’ car payment! They cost more than their fuckin’ car payment.”

“Well, actually most of them don’t even have fucking cars, they’re using fucking public transportation,” she adds. “You can just sit on your ass…I’m on social security for depression, which is a disability, so if you’re too depressed to work full time apply for social security.”

Then, at the end of the video, she puts the lobster onto a plate and feeds it to her dog. Thanks to this woman’s selfishness and arrogance, that dog is more well fed than some of our veterans on the streets—what do you think her punishment should be?

If you think that this disgusting welfare rat should be thrown in prison for life, please give this article a share on social media. Thank you and God bless our veterans.

Guess Who’s First State In Nation To Ban Sanctuary Cities? It’s Official!

We are all very well aware of how quickly sanctuary cities have gotten completely out of control, as former President Obama began the allowance of such cities.

Since cities have determined themselves to be “sanctuary” to those illegals who disobeyed our laws by entering this country, and even more shocking, came here to break criminal laws. Law and order have turned into chaos in these cities, to the point where local law enforcement refuse to comply with federal officials and handing over criminal illegal suspects to these federal agencies.

Well, enough is enough! The state of Texas has had its fill of sanctuary statuses in their cities and counties, and with help from his legislature, Governor Abbott signed a bill to fully ban sanctuary cities and to punish those local law enforcement who aid and abet criminal illegal aliens.

Image result for greg abbott signs sanctuary bill

From Breitbart:

Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed the State’s sanctuary city bill into law Sunday night during a Facebook Live event from his office. The new law is now the toughest anti-sanctuary city law in the United States and provides for criminal and civil penalties for police chiefs and sheriff’s that refuse to honor immigration detainers.

“Let’s be clear about something. We all support legal immigration. It helped to build America and Texas,” the governor said before signing the bill. “Legal immigration is different from harboring people who have committed dangerous crimes. This law cracks down on policies like the Travis County sheriff who declared she would not detain known criminals accused of violent crimes. Those policies are sanctuary city policies and won’t be tolerated in Texas.”

The bill, Senate Bill 4 by Senator Charles Perry (R-Lubbock), passed both chambers of the legislature before coming to Abbott’s desk for signature. The law will go into effect on September 1, 2017. This provides time for departments like the Travis County Sheriff’s Office to come into compliance…

Governor Abbott made the sanctuary city issue anemergency item for the Texas Legislature during his State of the State Address in January. The Texas Senate acted on the issue right away, passing SB4 in February. The bill went to the House where it sat until passage on April 27. The Senate confirmed the changes made by the House and sent the bill to Governor Abbott on May 3.

It is time that each and every state take a look at Governor Abbott’s law. He was easily able to work with both his house and senate to make this bill happen. By signing this bill, he has made it know to illegals, sanctuary cities, and local law enforcement that the rule of law is greater than their own personal viewpoints.

Well done, Texas!

Judge Jeanine Pirro Takes Huge Risk, Exposes Michelle Obama Live on Air

Michelle Obama was interviewed by Oprah Winfrey back in December, and it came as no surprise during the interview when she began bashing President Donald Trump. She made numerous disrespectful comments, even saying that the United States of America as “lost hope” since President Trump won the 2016 Presidential Election. The problem for Michelle Obama? Judge Jeanine Pirro had something to say about her sickening comments. She had enough of Michelle Obama’s unneeded comments and wasn’t afraid to let the world know exactly how she felt.

Michelle Obama was quoted saying “see, now, we are feeing what not having hope feels like. You know. Hope is necessary. It’s a necessary concept and Barack didn’t just talk about hope because he thought it was a nice slogan to get votes. He and I and so many believe, what else do you have when you do not have hope?”

On the contrary, Michelle, President Trump has given our country to hope we had been missing for eight long years. Trump is a man who has been working for decades to make the world a better place for everyone, and for Michelle Obama to claim that with Trump in charge there is no hope is completely ludicrous.

Judge Pirro didn’t overlook Michelle Obama’s comments.

She stated “you lived a life few can even imagine at the citadel of power and prestige in the world. You and your husband, blessed by God, and the American people, with the unique and historic opportunity to not only lead America from that shining place on the hill but impact Americans and give them hope virtually no others can. Now that you’re leaving, hope is gone?”

This was the harsh reality that Michelle Obama needed to hear.

Judge Pirro went on to say “hope is when people, 30 thousand at a time stand in line in the cold with their children hoping to get a glimpse of a man they think can change the course of their lives from the downward spiral that you and mister hope and change have put them on. I’ll tell you what hope and change is. Hope and change is when people show up 20 thousand strong after an election- desperate to see the man who actually brought back jobs to almost a thousand people when your husband said it was impossible.”

I couldn’t have said it better myself, Judge Pirro. How can Michelle and Barack be so ignorant to think that Americans wouldn’t eventually start seeing through their facades?

The video below shows Judge Pirro explaining her point of view on Michelle’s comments… and she certainly didn’t hold back.

As you can see, it’s pretty clear that Michelle Obama has a very skewed reality of what life is really like. For her to think that she can go around telling the people of America how they should be feeling is complete nonsense. President Trump restored hope for America when he was elected President of the United States. After eight years under a hateful man like former President Barack Obama, it was extremely refreshing to have a man who could deliver real results come into the White House.

Holistic Doctor and Entire Family Found Shot Dead in AZ

[CE] Dr. Annie Fairbanks, a holistic doctor practicing out of Arizona, was found shot dead in her home with husband Jason Fairbanks, 3 year old daughter and 9 month old son. This makes the 77th holistic doctor to have been found dead in this way over the past couple of years.

Sgt. Ben Hoster, a spokesman for the Scottsdale Police Department, stated that the police do not believe any other parties are involved. This essentially means there are no suspects and that this is likely a murder-suicide. Even the local paper is calling it that. Oddly, this statement and conclusion was made just hours after the incident took place, hardly giving anyone enough time to make a call like that.

“This is an isolated incident,” Hoster told reporters during a news conference in the neighbourhood on Friday afternoon. “We do not believe there are any outstanding suspects.”

The family ran a health practice called Macrotherapy, which focused on natural and holistic healing. It’s unclear whether or not the practice was employing new or outside the box methods like GcMAF, but further investigations should tell us.

GcMAF (Glycoprotein Macrophage Activating Factor) is a protein made by our body and is pretty much the ‘director’ of our immune system. Our immune system is our body’s defense system against viruses and other pathogens. As healthy persons we all produce thousands of cancer cells every day. When we are unhealthy, GcMAF production drops. If one is able to be injected with GcMAF, they can once again heal. GcMAF was linked to a number of holistic doctors that were showing up mysteriously dead over the past two years.

People who knew the Fairbanks family, saw Dr. Fairbanks as patients, and who were personal friends, had been reaching out to a colleague we work with over at Health Nut News stating they doubt the claim and explanation given by the police. Especially since it was made so quickly. As mentioned, the more that we uncover about this story, the more we will report on in the future.

Laura Fairbanks, Jason’s sister, recalled her older brother as a protector. “He loved his family so much, he wasn’t a bad person.”

Laura explained that Jason was working seven days a week to provide for his family while funds were tight in their new ventures. Funds were not coming in like Jason needed them to, but he was still working away.

Although Jason was a man of few words, Laura said she could always tell and see how he was really feeling. She gave no indication that she would have expected a suicide. This of course does not rule it out in any way, but adds to the mystery around this story.

We will continue to follow this story and its hasty decision to call it a murder-suicide within hours of it happening. We will update and produce more stories as we know more.

Hillary Thinks She Got Away With 1 Massive Scandal, But The DOJ Has A Nasty Surprise For Her

If you’ve been watching the mainstream press froth at the mouth over the nonsense investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, you’re not alone.

Feels a little like you’re in bizarro world, doesn’t it?

An inordinate amount of time, resources, and taxpayer dollars has been devoted to get to the bottom of a big pile of unsubstantiated gossip.

Gee, I wonder why President Donald Trump feels it’s so imperative to drain the swamp so that things can finally get done?

The ridiculous waste of time is incredibly off putting, and those feelings are exacerbated by real live issues that get brushed aside as if they’re insignificant.

For instance, the Uranium One deal has stunk to high heaven ever since it was announced.

Why haven’t lawmakers been inspired to follow the pungent scent?

Answers to that vary, but none of them inspire warm and fuzzy feelings.

Surprisingly, it seems that there’s finally a glimmer of hope that lawmakers will soon have a little more pep in their step in regards to our nation being pilfered of vast quantities of uranium for unclear reasons.

The Independent Journal Review shares the scoop:

The U.S. Department of Justice is reportedly open to appointing a special counsel to investigate the Uranium One deal and alleged wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation, a potential bombshell development in the unfolding scandal.

In a DOJ letter obtained by Fox News, Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd wrote to GOP lawmakers that Attorney General Jeff Sessions “has directed senior federal prosecutors to evaluate certain issues raised in your letters.

While feelings of ‘what took you so long’ are perfectly normal, we’ll instead focus on the positives.

The stench has finally become unbearable for folks at the DoJ.

“The DOJ will reportedly wait for a review to be completed by the inspector general before deciding what ‘additional steps’ may need to be taken regarding the Uranium One case.

Sessions previously admitted his past comments on Clinton would likely put his ‘objectivity’ into question, meaning a special counsel would likely be required if a formal investigation into the controversial Uranium One deal is launched.”

Can we expect something to happen overnight?

Not at all, but this is a big step towards the curtain being lifted.

Hopefully, that’s leading to some sleepless nights for those that insist there’s nothing to see here…
