The Department of Justice has launched an inquiry into FISA abuse by the Obama administration.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, in an interview with FOX News Channel’s ‘Sunday Morning Futures’ with Maria Bartiromo, promised that there would be an investigation into alleged FISA abuse by the Obama administration during the 2016 election.

“Every FISA warrant based on facts submitted to that court have to be accurate. That will be investigated and looked at,” Sessions said. “I’m not going to talk about the details of it, but I tell you we’re not going to allow that to happen.”

MARIA BARTIROMO: You mentioned lawlessness. There appears to have been a lot of lawlessness going on in government over the last 8 or 10 years, and I want to ask you about the abuses of the FISA Court because any way you look at it appears the FBI and the Department of Justice were abusing their power over the election because they simply did not like Donald Trump. We know that and a number of issues.

Now people wanted you to start handing down justice. Newt Gingrich joined me on this program last Sunday. Here’s what he had to say about that. Listen to this, Mr. Attorney General.

NEWT GINGRICH: He is not in any way recused on this information. He should be appointing an independent counsel. He should be demanding that we get to the bottom of this. I’m totally mystified because he’s a great guy, he’s a solid conservative, he certainly in his career has been a fighter, and this behavior is just totally unlike everything I knew about Jeff Sessions before the last six or eight months.

BARTIROMO: Are you, sir, investigating the fact that the FBI used the dossier to get a wiretap against Trump associates and they did not tell the FISA Court that the Democrats and Hillary Clinton paid for that dossier?

SESSIONS: Let me tell you, every FISA warrant based on facts submitted to that court have to be accurate. That will be investigated and looked at, and we are not going to participate at the Department of Justice in providing anything less than the proper disclosure to the court before they issue a FISA warrant. Other than that, I’m not going to talk about the details of it, but I tell you we’re not going to allow that to happen.

Stay tuned for updates!

Report: Trump Broke With Justice Department and Called for Release of the Memo

According to The Washington Post, President Donald Trump called for the release of a classified memo allegedly detailing abuses by the U.S. government. Top officials at the Department of Justice warned him that releasing the classified document would be “extraordinarily reckless” if it did not first get an official review.

John Kelly, Trump’s chief of staff, reportedly noted Trump’s desire to see the memo released to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, according to a senior administration official. However, Congress will make the final decision on whether the memo will be released.

The senior administration official stated:

[Trump] is inclined to have that released just because it will shed light. Apparently all the rumors are that it will shed light, it will help the investigators come to a conclusion.

Many lawmakers have made it clear that what’s in the memo is “shocking.”

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) said:

I’m here to tell all of America tonight that I am shocked to read exactly what has taken place. I would think it would never happen in a country that loves freedom and democracy like this country. It is time we become transparent in all of this and I am calling on our leadership to make this available so that all Americans can judge for themselves.

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) said:

If you think your viewers want to know whether or not the dossier was used in court proceedings, whether or not it was vetted before it was used, whether or not it’s ever been vetted — if you are interested in who paid for the dossier, if you are interested in Christopher Steele’s relationship with Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee, then, yes, you will want the memo to come out.

The House Intelligence Committee voted to allow all members of the House to view the memo. However, senators were not invited to see the memo, according to a report by CNN.

ERIC TRUMP’S BROTHER-IN-LAW NAMED CHIEF OF STAFF OF AN ENERGY DEPARTMENT OFFICE

President Donald Trump has hired his son’s brother-in-law to oversee an Energy Department office that apparently is dismantling some of former President Barack Obama’s climate change initiatives.

Lara Trump’s brother, Kyle Yunaska, has been named chief of staff of the Office of Energy Policy and Systems Analysis, Environmental & Energy Publishing reported on Wednesday. Lara Trump is married to Eric Trump, the president’s third child.

As chief of staff, Yunaska will advise Executive Director Sean Cunningham and his deputy Carol Battershell, according to the Energy Department website. But here’s where it gets interesting: Under Obama, the Energy Policy and Systems Analysis office oversaw initiatives to fight climate change, but it’s unclear if that approach will continue. In his prior job as a lobbyist, Cunningham reportedly helped develop a directive to subsidize coal and nuclear power.

Yunaska was promoted into his new role from his original post as assistant to the secretary on the “beachhead” team of temporary political appointees in the Energy Department, which he joined in February.

On a personal level, Yunaska graduated from East Carolina University in 2007 with a bachelor’s degree in management and physics. He later got a master’s in finance from the same school in 2009. After graduation, he worked for Vail Resorts from 2010 to 2011, worked as an accounting manager for the Association of Schools and Programs of Public Health from 2012 to 2014, and was a tax analyst for Georgetown University in 2014.

In a side note, the hunky Yunaska was named one of Washington D.C.’s “hottest bachelors” by the syndicated news magazine “Inside Edition” in 2013.

His alumni page from college doesn’t mention anything about energy or energy policy. Instead, it lists: “Team Building, Strategy, Management, Entrepreneurship, Project Planning, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Office, PowerPoint, Budgets, Public Speaking, Strategic Planning, Business Strategy, Microsoft Word, Customer Service, Event Planning, Data Analysis, Social Media, Community Outreach, Research, Analysis, Customer Satisfaction, Account Management.”

His LinkedIn page also made no mention of experience in the energy industry.

“Kyle has had a dynamic professional background which includes general management, market research, freelance writing, construction, sales, and successful entrepreneurial ventures,” it reads.

Yunaska’s sister married Eric Trump in 2014 at Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago private club in Palm Beach, Florida.

It’s not surprising that a member of the extended Trump family has gotten a job with the administration. After all, the president has salted the government and his campaign with relatives.

Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump serves as adviser to the president. Her husband Jared Kushner is assistant to the president and senior adviser. Lara Trump works on President Trump’s re-election campaign. The president’s oldest son, Donald Trump Jr., has also been involved in politics. He was at the Trump Tower meeting in 2016 when he and other campaign officials met with a Russian lawyer who promised damaging information on Hillary Clinton.
