TRUMP CALLS OUT CHUCKY SCHUMER …
President Donald Trump mocked New York Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer for claiming lack of confidence in former FBI director James Comey and then acting upset when Trump fired him.
In a tweet posted late Tuesday evening, Trump referred to Schumer as ‘Cryin’ Chuck Schumer for reversing positions on Comey after Trump fired the FBI director earlier Tuesday. Trump made the decision based on the recommendation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his deputy Rod Rosenstein. According to the president, the purpose of the firing is to reinvigorate “public trust and confidence.”
Former Obama Administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice Declines to Testify Before Senate Subcommittee
OF COURSE SUSAN RICE HAD NO PROBLEM GOING ON CNN AND DISCUSSING THE ISSUES …
As reported at Politico, Former Obama administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice on Wednesday declined a request to testify next week before a Senate subcommittee, citing separation of powers between the executive and legislative branches and the fact that the invitation was not bipartisan. SERIOUSLY? If the allegation is that somehow Obama administration officials utilized intelligence for political purposes is absolutely false, then why is former Obama administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice ducking the U.S. Senate subcommittee? Me thinks you have much to hide. Honestly, how does Susan Rice think that declining the request to testify on Russian hacking not make her look guilty as sin? So much for the most transparent administration ever.
Former Obama administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice on Wednesday declined a request to testify next week before a Senate subcommittee, citing separation of powers between the executive and legislative branches and the fact that the invitation was not bipartisan.
Rice’s decision to decline the invitation to testify on Russia’s election meddling came in a letter from her lawyer, Kathryn Ruemmler, to the leaders of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism, Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.).
The letter, first reported by CNN, notes that the invitation to testify came only from Graham and that Whitehouse “has informed us by letter that he did not agree to” the request, which Ruemmler calls “a significant departure from the bipartisan invitations extended to other witnesses.”
“Moreover,” Ruemmler writes, “Chairman Graham’s invitation was extended only after the hearing was noticed, less than two weeks before the hearing was scheduled to occur, and without consultation with Ambassador Rice, a professional courtesy that would customarily be extended to any witness.”
The Judiciary subcommittee is holding a hearing next Monday that will feature testimony from former acting Attorney General Sally Yates and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.
Former Obama Administration National Security Adviser Susan Rice had no prob;em going on the lap dog media to discuss the issues but then declines to testify for a Senate subcommittee on Russian hacking. Watch the video below of the liberal MSM trying to defend the unmasking of names. So it is ok to go on the friendly bias MSM, but hell no to Senate where she would be sworn in.
MAKES ONE ALMOST WANT TO GO BACK TO A ROTARY DIAL LAND LINE OR BETTER YET, TELEGRAPH AND A PHILCO BLACK & WHITE TV WITH RABBIT EARS ANTENNA…
In the wake of the latest Wikileaks dump, several of the tech firms whose products have been allegedly compromised by the CIA have given their first reactions to the claims. Companies like Apple looked quell worries from their users by issuing a statement to TechCrunch designed to alleviate concerns that the company’s products might still be vulnerable to a laundry list of CIA exploits. In short, Apple maintains that many of the iOS vulnerabilities the CIA previously relied upon have already been patched.
Apple’s statement was the most detailed, saying it had already addressed some of the vulnerabilities.
“The technology built into today’s iPhone represents the best data security available to consumers, and we’re constantly working to keep it that way,” it said.
“Our products and software are designed to quickly get security updates into the hands of our customers, with nearly 80% of users running the latest version of our operating system.
“While our initial analysis indicates that many of the issues leaked today were already patched in the latest iOS, we will continue work to rapidly address any identified vulnerabilities.
“We always urge customers to download the latest iOS to make sure they have the most recent security update.”
Samsung – whose F8000 series of televisions was reportedly compromised via a USB connection-based hack co-developed with the UK’s MI5 agency – was briefer.
“Protecting consumers’ privacy and the security of our devices is a top priority at Samsung,” it said.
“We are aware of the report in question and are urgently looking into the matter.”
The leaks also claimed that the CIA had created malware to target PCs running Microsoft’s Windows operating system.
“We are aware of the report and are looking into it,” a spokesman from Microsoft said.
Google declined to comment about allegations that the CIA was able to “penetrate, infest and control” Android phones due to its discovery and acquisition of “zero day” bugs – previously unknown flaws in the operating system’s code.
Likewise, the Linux Foundation has yet to publicly react to claims the agency had created “attack and control systems” that could hijack computers powered by Linux-based software.
The World Wide Web Foundation – which campaigns for internet privacy – said the US government needed to issue a detailed response.

WOW, NOW THE INSANE LEFT BLAMES TRUMP FOR WEIGHT GAIN …

President Donald Trump Tweets Obama Wire Tapped Him …”Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!”
IF THE MEDIA WANTS ITS WATERGATE, HERE IT IS … DO YOU HAVE THE GUTS TO INVESTIGATE IT?
This morning President Donald Trump tweeted out the following bombshell … that the Obama Administration “wire tapped” the Trump Towers during the election. Whether this is true or not, this begins to make some sense. As Rush Limbaugh stated the other day, Obama was waging a silent coup by setting land mines along the way as he was in his way out the door. It would make sense that there were wire taps as how has there been so much so-called info on Trump admin individuals. Then there is of course the crimes that are being committed by the purposeful, wanted and intended leaks to the media. This entire anti-Trump attack was obviously a concerted and planned event. So who do you think was responsible for such a “community organized” coup?
Here is your Watergate MSM, it just happens to be a Democrat who appears to have been committing the crimes, do you have the guts to do your job and fairly investigate this story? Or are you going to just act like the liberal sycophants that you are and defend Obama? This is what you have been waiting for all your lives, its worse than Watergate … do your job, or just shut up forever.
Yup, just like Obama never had anything to do with or knew noting about “Fast & Furious” or the fact that conservative Tea Party non-profit organizations were targeted by Obama’s IRS. Former Obama foreign policy adviser Ben Rhodes tweeted earlier in the day that: “No President can order a wiretap. Those restrictions were put in place to protect citizens from people like you.” I guess it all depends on what is, is. Its not the president who ordered the wire tap, its was one of his minions.
Former President Obama on Saturday denied President Trump’s accusation that Obama had Trump Tower phones tapped in the weeks before the November 2016 election.
“Neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false,” said Kevin Lewis, a spokesman for the former president.
UPDATE II: The Democrat media complex comes to the defense of Barack Obama and uses the term “false”.
At this point we have no idea is this story is tru or false, yet some how the MSM already knows that it is false. We know that there was a FISA request. The MSM should want to be all over this story to find the truth. Yet, they have already determined that its a false comment. HOW THEY HELL DO THEY KNOW ITS FALSE? If the situation was reversed they would already be looking to impeach Trump.
