Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) Says on CNN’s State of the Union … Calls for Investigation into Former Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s actions After Comey Testimony in Regards to the Clinton Email Scandal

Via RedState, in a interview on CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said that there should be an investigation into former Obama administration Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s actions that came out during former FBI directors testimony last Thursday to the Senate. Comey testified that Lynch improperly injected politics into the investigation. Comey was told to call the FBI criminal investigation a matter.  However, in that case, Comey had no issue doing exactly what the AG told him to do and provided cover for the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign. Although now he claims it gave him a queasy feeling.

It’s not every day the ranking member of the Senate Intelligence Committee says a political appointee of the same party needs to be investigated. But that’s exactly what Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein (Calif.) said on Sunday’s State of the Union on CNN of former Obama administration Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s actions in regards to the Clinton email scandal.

“I think we need to know more about that,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-California) on Sunday’s episode of State of the Union. “And there’s only one way to know about it, and that’s to have the Judiciary Committee take a look at that.”

Feinstein’s comment comes in the wake of fired F.B.I. Director James Comey’s testimony last week in which he claimed Lynch — who herself created a firestorm when she made a visit to allegedly chitchat with Bill Clinton on the tarmac during the 2016 campaign — told him to call the FBI’s probe into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of email as Secretary of State a “matter” rather than an “investigation.”

From The Liar in Chief: Barack Obama urges ‘Political Courage’ to save Un-Affordable Care Act & His Legacy

THE AUDACITY OF A LIAR!!!

Last night, Barack Obama called for members of Congress not to repeal his dismal and failed legacy as he called on them to exercise “political courage.” REALLY, political courage? You mean the political courage it took Obama to lie to the American people to get his failed healthcare law passed? You all remember that you would be able to keep your doctor and health insurance coverage if you wanted to. You remember that it would lower insurance premiums. How did that work our for you America? You mean it takes political courage to lie? Because America, that is what Obama and Democrats did to pass Obamacare. Don’t buy the lies. Obamacare is doomed to failure and would collapse upon itself had nothing been done.

Politifact Lie of the Year: ‘If you like your health care plan, you can keep it’

OBAMA LIES … IF YOU LIKE YOUR HEALTHCARE PLAN YOU CAN KEEP IT

Barack Obama on Sunday night called on members of Congress to exercise the “political courage” to not repeal Obamacare — his first public comments about the law since the House voted to repeal it on Thursday, and a rare entry into the current political debate since leaving office.

“I hope they understand that courage means not simply doing what’s politically expedient, but doing what, deep in our hearts, we know is right,” Obama said, in a speech here at the John F. Kennedy Library accepting the Profiles in Courage award in honor of what would have been Kennedy’s 100th birthday.

“I expect to be busy, if not with a second career, at least a second act,” Obama said, promising more involvement.

Obama_Pathalogical Liar

Citing those who lost their seats after voting for the healthcare law in 2010, Obama described his “fervent hope” that current members “recognize it takes little courage to aid those who are already powerful, already comfortable, already influential — but it takes some courage to champion the vulnerable and the sick and the infirm, those who often have no access to the corridors of power.”

Obama: We will lower your premiums $2500 per family per year

Now the Democrat talking point lie is that Obamacare gave 21 million people healthcare coverage. Hmm, how many of those people had insurance coverage they liked and were forced off it and forced on to Obamacare?

WAKE THE HELL UP AMERICA.

Talk About Being 100% Political … Democrats in House Sing … “Hey Hey Goodbye” After House Votes to Repeal Obamacare

House Democrats Taunt Republicans as Health Care Passes with ‘Na Na Na Na, Hey Hey Hey, Goodbye’ …

Following the passing of the repeal of Obamacare, House Democrats sprang into premeditated song and serenaded the House halls with ‘Na Na Na Na, Hey Hey Hey, Goodbye’. REALLY? Are you serious? Not caring one iota about the American people, the insane insurance premium hikes of Obamacare, the lies that you could keep your doctor or your healthcare plan, these Democrat fools instead were more concerned about politics. The hell with the American people and the disastrous health care plan they inflicted upon America. How childish can House Democrats get? It is a complete embarrassment these people are in elected office. A note to Trump, drain the damn swamp!

The Democrats sang “Hey Hey Goodbye” as a form of mockery to the GOP and a reference to they will lose their jobs in the 2018 midterm elections because of this this vote. REALLY? Obamacare was going to fail anyhow, Trump and the GOP did America a favor. Is the new replacement to Obamacare perfect, not a chance. A lot of deals are going to have to be make to get it thru the Senate, but make no mistake about it Democrats and Americans … OBAMACARE WAS A LIE AND A TOTAL FAILURE IN A DEATH SPIRAL.

Hey Dems, this is what losing looks like, keep it up. Because the Obama hopey-changey years are over and being dismantled one brick at a time.

VIA Mediaite:

After the vote, a chant broke out on the House Floor:

Na Na Na Na
Na Na Na Na
Hey Hey Hey
Gooood Bye

The chant, of course, was from “Na Na Na Hey Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye” by Steam — oft heard at sporting events.

According to multiple reporters on Twitter, the chant did not come from House Republicans celebrating the bill passage, but from Democrats signaling their belief that the vote will help cost the republicans their seats in the midterms.

House Democrats also waved goodbye towards their Republican colleagues as the final votes were tallied. The chant lasted for nearly a full minute.

FINALLY … House Republicans Pass Obamacare Repeal, 217-213

HOUSE FINALLY REPEALS OBAMACARE …

After campaigning on the issue for nearly seven years, House Republicans have finally passed a health care bill to repeal and replace the failed disaster known as Obamacare. The legislation passed 217 to 213 with no Democrats joining Republicans to repeal the failed Obamacare law. There were 20 Republicans voted no on the legislation. President Donald Trump praised House Speaker Paul Ryan and said he’s confident in Senate passage and predicted an “unbelievable victory.” “Trump went on to say, “As far as I’m concerned, your premiums are going to come down.”

Make no mistake about it America, Obamacare was a lie fed to you by Barack Obama and Democrats. Do I think this legislation is perfect, not a chance, but Obamacare was a failing disaster.

House Republicans on Thursday narrowly approved their sweeping health care bill aimed at fulfilling a campaign promise to upend ObamaCare, after resuscitating legislation that had flatlined on the floor not six weeks earlier.

The revised American Health Care Act passed on a 217-213 vote.

“We’re going to get this finished,” President Trump declared in a celebratory Rose Garden event, surrounded by Republican congressional allies shortly after the vote. He vowed premiums and deductibles will be “coming down” and the Affordable Care Act is “essentially dead.”

The passage marked Republicans’ biggest step yet toward replacing the Obama administration’s signature domestic policy law. The bill heads next to the Senate, however, where it faces an uncertain fate.

Repeal Obamacare vote

NYT: Vote Count

I can only hope that this is the beginning of really providing affordable and fair insurance coverage to Americans who want insurance. not forced to purchase government sponsored and unaffordable insurance. My person opinion having been in the healthcare field for nearly 30 years is that the fix should have been more market driven, not a spoon fed insurance plan. Individuals are going to have to start taking responsibility for their lives and stop depending on government, that goes for Republicans too.

Full White House Press Conference following House Repeal of Obamacare

From CNN:

Democrats were unable to stop the GOP vote aimed at President Barack Obama’s signature legislative achievement. But after the final vote was cast, they chanted “nah nah nah nah hey hey hey goodbye” to their Republican colleagues, with a few members waving, as they believe the vote will lead to many GOP lawmakers losing their seats in the November 2018 midterms.

Thursday marks a political milestone — one that has painfully eluded Trump and House leaders for months. The controversial health care bill delivered Trump the biggest political defeat of his short presidency in March, when the legislation had to be yanked from the House floor because it simply didn’t have enough support.

Under pressure from an antsy Trump looking to score a big political victory, Republican leaders tried again last week, hoping to to get to 216 votes ahead of the President’s symbolically important 100-day mark in office. That effort, too, failed.

FBI Monitored Former Trump Campaign Adviser Carter Page on Russia

FBI MONITORED FORMER TRUMP CAMPAIGN ADVISOR

Via CNN.

The revelation confirms for the first time that a federal surveillance warrant, known as a FISA warrant, was issued for a member of the Trump campaign as part of a federal investigation of potential ties between the Republican’s associates and the Russian government. Hmm, so now we do know that the Obama admin did in fact call for surveillance on Trump campaign team members, contrary to the denials.

Carter Page

The FBI obtained a warrant to monitor President Donald Trump’s former campaign adviser, Carter Page, last summer on suspicions he knowingly engaged in clandestine intelligence activities on behalf of Moscow, The Washington Post is reporting.

The FBI and Justice Department obtained a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act warrant to monitor the communications of Page, who has called himself a junior member of Trump’s foreign policy advisory team, as part of their investigation into possible ties between Trump’s campaign and Russia, the newspaper says, citing unnamed law enforcement and other US officials.

The FBI and Justice Department obtained the warrant after convincing a FISA judge there was probable cause to believe Page was acting as an agent of a foreign government (Russia), the report says. The warrant presents the strongest information to date that the FBI had reason to believe a Trump adviser was in touch with Moscow and met with foreign operatives during Trump’s presidential campaign.

FBI Director James Comey has acknowledged that an investigation was opened last year into Russia’s efforts to influence the election and the question of whether the Trump campaign coordinated with the Kremlin. But Comey stopped short of naming anyone working for the campaign who may have been involved.

CNN is working to confirm The Washington Post’s story.

Page, however, called the FISA warrant “unjustified” in a statement to CNN’s Manu Raju.

So what was this really? I tend to go along with Hot Air’s premise that this was a back door method of surveiling Trump’s campaign team. If there had been anything, and I mean anything, wouldn’t we know at this point and a crime would have been charged? What we now know is that the Obana administration did surveil Trump’s campaign.

Actually, that’s not quite true. It’s evidence that the Department of Justice sought to surveil Trump campaign figures using intel resources, but not necessarily that they had real evidence and/or a legitimate “reason to believe” that Trump campaign officials were in touch with Russian agents. It’s extremely easy for the government to get approvals for FISA warrants, as we have discovered in the debates over renewals of Section 702 of the PATRIOT Act. That’s actually the crux of the issue: did certain Trump campaign officials knowingly collude with Russian intelligence — or did the Obama administration spy on political rivals in order to impact the election outcome? Both? Neither?
