House Republicans Unveil Resolution Officially Calling For Second Special Counsel to Investigate the Investigators, (DOJ & FBI) VIDEO
COULD THERE BE A SECOND SPECIAL COUNSEL TO INVESTIGATE THE INVESTIGATORS?
House Republicans unveiled Tuesday a 12 page resolution calling for a second special counsel to investigate misconduct and possible crimes at the highest levels of the Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation. House Republicans and members of the Freedom Caucus have called for a special counsel as they believe that the FBI and DOJ are incapable of investigating themselves. I would agree. During the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s server/emails and the so-called Trump-Russian collusion investigations, we have been witness to bias, partisanship and a double standard from high ranking members of the DOJ & FBI, the likes we have never seen.
The resolution is backed by Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., the chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus as well as two of the group’s co-founders — Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla.
Fox News has learned the 12-page resolution will ask a second special counsel to probe matters related to three topics:The ending of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s personal email server, the progress of the Trump-Russia investigation from its origins through the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel, and abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) during the warrant application process.
The resolution is expected to say that a second special counsel would have greater autonomy to investigate those issues than the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General. Last week, Inspector General Michael Horowitz told lawmakers that he had completed his draft report on the Clinton investigation and submitted it to the DOJ and the FBI.

Expressing the sense of Congress that the Attorney General
of the United States should appoint a Special Counsel
to investigate misconduct at the Department of Justice
and Federal Bureau of Investigation, including an inves-
tigation of abuse of the FISA warrant process, how
and why the Hillary Clinton probe ended, and how and
why the Donald Trump-Russia probe began.
Whereas there is an urgent need for the appointment of a
second Special Counsel in light of evidence that raises
critical concerns about decisions, activities, and inherent
bias displayed at the highest levels of the Department of
Justice (DOJ) and Federal Bureau of Investigation
(FBI) regarding FISA abuse, how and why the Hillary
Clinton email probe ended, and how and why the Donald
Trump-Russia probe began;
Whereas the concerns of the American people are serious and
the issues requiring an immediate, unbiased, inde-
pendent, and thorough investigation are broad;
Whereas misconduct during the 2016 presidential election by
high-ranking individuals within the FBI and DOJ may
have led to the premature conclusion of the FBI’s 2016
probe into then-presidential candidate and former Sec-
retary of State Hillary Clinton; [...]
Whereas the DOJ and FBI cannot be expected to fully inves-
tigate themselves regarding this matter:
Arizona Special Election Results – 8th House District: Republican Debbie Lesko Defeats Democrat Hiral Tipirneni
BLUE WAVE STOPPED, DEMOCRATS FAIL TO WIN AZ 8TH …
The former Arizona state senator Republican Debbie Lesko defeated Democratic Hiral Tipirneni to win the special congressional election for the 8th House District on Tuesday, 52.6% to 47.4%. Lesko’s victory guarantees that the GOP will hold on to a seat held previously by former Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ), who resigned over a personal scandal. As stated at Breitbart, the Blue wave fizzles when Democrats act and conduct themselves as Democrats, not GOP like.
The “Blue Wave” concept had gained some credence in March when Rep. Conor Lamb (D-PA) defeated Republican Rick Saccone in a special election in Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District, which President Trump carried by 19 points in 2016.
But the special election in Arizona’s 8th Congressional District Tuesday differed from last month’s special election in Pennsylvania in several ways.
First, Hiral Tipirneni was not the same kind of candidate as Conor Lamb, as Breitbart News reported:
Tipirneni’s professional background and political positioning differ from those of Rep. Conor Lamb (D-PA), a military veteran and attorney who parlayed his public opposition to Democrat Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) into a narrow victory over his Republican opponent in last month’s special election in Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District.
“The heightened Republican voter turnout [in early voting] may have been influenced by recent reports questioning the professional background of Tipirneni, the Democrat candidate,” Breitbart News noted.
Second, Arizona’s 8th Congressional District is a traditionally Republican district, while Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District is more of a traditionally union oriented blue-collar Democratic district.
Don’t look now but that Blue wave advantage is shrinking. Democrats hold an advantage ahead of the 2018 midterm elections, but a Washington Post-ABC News poll shows that edge has narrowed since January. The lead is down to 4 points. Could the LEFT and their dreams of a blue wave have been premature? A funny thing has happened on the way to the midterm elections and even these polls are way too early to predict and possible outcomes. One, the people have seen the good that Trump has done, especially with tax cuts, deregulation, the economy and jobs. Trump’s poll numbers are rising and so is the GOP’s fate as a result of the good that Trump has done, even though the MSM refuses to acknowledge it. In the 2018 the American people will have the choice of continuing the great policies of job growth, lower taxes and lower unemployment under President Trump or the chaos and far LEFTY insanity of Democrat’s Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.
Even with all the negative news that the Democrat media complex puts forth, where 90% is negative to President Donald Trump, the trend is for the people to vote GOP. Thankfully the networks do not control the media anymore. In the end, the people will get what they deserve.
Democrats hold an advantage ahead of the midterm elections, but a Washington Post-ABC News poll shows that edge has narrowed since January, a signal to party leaders and strategists that they could be premature in anticipating a huge wave of victories in November.
The poll finds that the gap between support for Democratic vs. Republican House candidates dropped by more than half since the beginning of the year. At the same time, there has been a slight increase in President Trump’s approval rating, although it remains low. Measures of partisan enthusiasm paint a more mixed picture of the electorate in comparison to signs of Democratic intensity displayed in many recent special elections.
One potentially new factor in the mix of midterm issues is gun policy, which has emerged as a major voter consideration two months after the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. More than 4 in 10 registered voters say it is extremely important that candidates share their views on gun issues. Fewer voters say it’s critical that candidates share their views on Trump or House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., leaders who are most likely to be targets in partisan messaging this fall.
With the Republicans’ House majority at risk, 47 percent of registered voters say they prefer the Democratic candidate in their district, while 43 percent favor the Republican. That four-point margin compares with a 12-point advantage Democrats held in January. Among a broader group of voting-age adults, the Democrats’ margin is 10 points, 50 percent to 40 percent.
Republicans owe part of their improved standing to Trump’s thawing job ratings. The Post-ABC poll finds that 40 percent approve of the president, up slightly from 36 percent in January to his highest level of support since last April. Still, Trump continues to face majority disapproval at 56 percent, higher than any president at this stage since the dawn of modern polling, an indication that he remains a significant liability for Republicans on November’s ballot.
PRESIDENT TRUMP WOWS THEM AT CPAC!!!
President Donald Trump said to all to not get complacent with the 2018 midterm elections. Trump reminded Republicans and Conservatives alike, if you let the Democrats win they will repeal the tax cuts and repeal the Second Amendment. Don’t think for one second the LEFT and Democrats will the all too willing aid of the liberal MSM would not attempt it.
Trump reminded CPAC that he is fulfilling his campaign promises to Make America Great Again.
IT WOULD APPEAR THAT AMERICANS ARE LIKING THEIR CRUMBS …
According to a recent New York Times/Survey Monkey poll, 51% of Americans now approve of the Trump/GOP tax cut law. That is up from 46 percent in January and 37 percent in December. The lower approval ratings occurred prior to the law being passed and the misinformation spread by the liberal MSM and Democrats. Since the passage of the tax cut law, over 3 million Americans have received bonuses from their companies since the passage of the Trump/GOP tax cuts. Also, all Americans will see if their payroll checks have increased as companies were to adjust the tax tables by February 15, 2018. Look for the support of these tax cuts to continue to increase as Americans come to realize they did receive benefits and that Democrats lied to them. Also, keep in mind that not one Democrat in either the House or the Senate voted for Americans to keep more of their money.
The tax overhaul that President Trump signed into law now has more supporters than opponents, buoying Republican hopes for this year’s congressional elections.
The growing public support for the law coincides with an eroding Democratic lead when voters are asked which party they would like to see control Congress. And it follows an aggressive effort by Republicans, backed by millions of dollars of advertising from conservative groups, to persuade voters of the law’s benefits.
That campaign has rallied support from Republicans, in particular. But in contrast with many other issues — including Mr. Trump’s job approval rating — it also appears to be winning over some Democrats. Support for the law remains low among Democrats, but it has doubled over the past two months and is twice as strong as their approval of Mr. Trump today.
Over all, 51 percent of Americans approve of the tax law, while 46 percent disapprove, according to a poll for The New York Times conducted between Feb. 5 and Feb. 11 by SurveyMonkey. Approval has risen from 46 percent in January and 37 percent in December, when the law was passed.
Other recent polls have shown the same upswings for the law by the Americans people, including a Monmouth University Poll in late January that found support for it had risen to 44 percent nationally, from 26 percent in December. The Democrats are going to have a lot of explaining to do in the 2018 midterm elections.
