Nunes goes squishy, reinvigorating the left and deflating the GOP, but Freedom Watch steps in

Liz Peek, Devin Nunes, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, announced Thursday that he is stepping down from leading the investigation into Russia’s interference in our election, and allegations that the Obama White House used surveillance information on Trump associates for political purposes. It is a terrible mistake, and a blow to Republicans. The optics

Yes, Virginia, there might be two scandals worth pursuing

Ed Morrissey, Suddenly, the media has become very, very worried about distractions rather than covering the news. When Bloomberg’s Eli Lake reported that former national security adviser Susan Rice had a pattern of requesting the names of US persons redacted in surveillance transcripts, media outlets rushed to assure viewers, listeners, and readers that “there’s nothing to

Ben Carson Finds $500 Billion (Billion!) In Errors During Audit Of Obama HUD

Forget Russiagate – Susan Rice Scandal a Constitutional Crisis

Charlie Hurt | Breitbart, Is any American safe from political espionage thuggery? Well, that explains the deafening silence from President Obama.

Susan Rice’s Domestic Spying is a National security Nightmare

I know Susan Rice’s story is that sure, there was

Susan Rice’s lousy track record makes it tough to believe her now

Spygate: Democrats and the media have given Obama a free ride on all his lies

Who Asked Susan Rice to Unmask those Names?

Matthew Vadum, Obama’s national security advisor is a liar — and possibly a felon.

Intelligence official who ‘unmasked’ Trump associates is ‘very high up’

Malia Zimmerman, Adam Housley, The U.S. intelligence official who “unmasked,” or exposed, the names of multiple private citizens affiliated with the Trump team is someone “very well known, very high up, very senior in the intelligence world,” a source told Fox News on Friday.  Intelligence and House sources with direct knowledge of the disclosure of
