North & South Korean Leaders meet in Surprise Summit in the Demilitarized Border Area (VIDEO)

DEMOCRATS, LEFT AND MSM MIGHT WANT TO HOLD THEIR TONGUES AND GLEE OF FAILURE …

As reported at the BBC, the leaders of North and South Korea have met in the demilitarized border area between the two countries. This meeting is only the second between South Korea’s Moon Jae-in and the North’s Kim Jong-un. Many in the MSM and on the LEFT ridiculed and mocked President Trump when he canceled the summit ahead of the planned June 12th date  to be held in Singapore. Because the LEFT was more happy that Trump not gain a victory than the United States and the world. However, President Trump stated that he was still optimistic and maybe it would still go on. This surprise meeting between South Korea’s Moon Jae-in and the North’s Kim Jong-un is certainly a positive sign.

The leaders of North and South Korea have met in the demilitarised border area between the two countries.

The meeting is only the second between South Korea’s Moon Jae-in and the North’s Kim Jong-un.

It comes as the two sides continue efforts to put a historic US-North Korea summit back on track.

US President Donald Trump cancelled the summit, scheduled to be held in Singapore on 12 June, but later suggested it might still go ahead.

The latest talks were held on the northern side of the Panmunjom truce village, between 15:00 and 17:00 local time (06:00 and 08:00 GMT), Mr Moon’s office said.

“Both leaders exchanged opinions… for the successful holding of the North Korea-US summit,” it added, saying that Mr Moon would announce the outcome of the talks on Sunday morning.

In Washington, Trump administration spokeswoman Sarah Sanders confirmed that an advance team of White House and Department of State officials would leave for Singapore this weekend, as originally scheduled, to prepare for a possible summit there.

A Utah man who has been incarcerated in a Venezuelan jail since 2016 is set to be released, U.S. officials said Saturday.

Joshua Holt, 26, has been jailed in Venezuela after he traveled to the South American country in the summer of 2016 to marry Thamara Candelo, whom he met on a website for Mormon singles. The two planned to return to the U.S. after getting married, but where jailed in El Hilcolde on what human rights groups said were largely trumped-up charges.

“Good news about the release of the American hostage from Venezuela. Should be landing in D.C. this evening and be in the White House, with his family, at about 7:00 p.m. The great people of Utah will be very happy!” President Donald Trump said in an early morning tweet.

Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah also provided a statement on the Holt’s release.

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.

House Republicans Resolution

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.

RESOLUTION
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:

IT’S OFFICIAL … Confirmed by NY Times, Deep State FBI Spied on Trump’s Camp Using Informant: Code Name: Crossfire Hurricane.

ITS OFFICIAL, THE DEEP STATE IS OUT OF CONTROL AND INDIVIDUALS NEED TO GO TO PRISON ..

We know have confirmation that the FBI spied on a political campaign and actually used an undercover informant to do so. The NY Times article is a must read. So riddle me this Batman, if the FBI had an informant in the Trump political campaign apparatus, how that was authorized one can only imagine, and this mole was supposed to be getting dirt and information on Trump-Russian collusion, then how in hell over one year later of a Mueller Special counsel and even longer FBI investigation has the Deep State come up with nothing to do with collusion? Seriously, they had and informant and still nothing! Maybe because there is nothing and this was a political hit job born out of the Obama administration to get Hillary elected and then destroy a duly elected President of the United States. Folks, this is 1000 times worse than Watergate.

VIA the New York Times, of all places, Code Name Crossfire Hurricane: The Secret Origins of the Trump Investigation.

Within hours of opening an investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia in the summer of 2016, the F.B.I. dispatched a pair of agents to London on a mission so secretive that all but a handful of officials were kept in the dark.

Their assignment, which has not been previously reported, was to meet the Australian ambassador, who had evidence that one of Donald J. Trump’s advisers knew in advance about Russian election meddling. After tense deliberations between Washington and Canberra, top Australian officials broke with diplomatic protocol and allowed the ambassador, Alexander Downer, to sit for an F.B.I. interview to describe his meeting with the campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos.

The agents summarized their highly unusual interview and sent word to Washington on Aug. 2, 2016, two days after the investigation was opened. Their report helped provide the foundation for a case that, a year ago Thursday, became the special counsel investigation. But at the time, a small group of F.B.I. officials knew it by its code name: Crossfire Hurricane.

[...]

In the Clinton case, Mr. Comey has said he erred on the side of transparency. But in the face of questions from Congress about the Trump campaign, the F.B.I. declined to tip its hand. And when The New York Times tried to assess the state of the investigation in October 2016, law enforcement officials cautioned against drawing any conclusions, resulting in a story that significantly played down the case.

Mr. Comey has said it is unfair to compare the Clinton case, which was winding down in the summer of 2016, with the Russia case, which was in its earliest stages. He said he did not make political considerations about who would benefit from each decision.

But underpinning both cases was one political calculation: that Mrs. Clinton would win and Mr. Trump would lose. Agents feared being seen as withholding information or going too easy on her. And they worried that any overt actions against Mr. Trump’s campaign would only reinforce his claims that the election was being rigged against him.

[…]

The F.B.I. obtained phone records and other documents using national security letters — a secret type of subpoena — officials said. And at least one government informant met several times with Mr. Page and Mr. Papadopoulos, current and former officials said. That has become a politically contentious point, with Mr. Trump’s allies questioning whether the F.B.I. was spying on the Trump campaign or trying to entrap campaign officials.

President Donald Trump Welcomes Home Three Americans Imprisoned in North Korea Back to the USA (VIDEO)

WELCOME HOME!!!

President Donald Trump shook hands with former three detainees Kim Dong-chul, Kim Hak-song and Tony Kim as he welcomed them home after their imprisonment in North Korea. The visuals below in the videos are amazing. You can witness the emotion from these three men and their new found freedom and what freedom truly looks like when it is taken away. Thank you President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. One never expects good things to happen at 3 AM in the morning; however, these are the types of stories that makes it proud to make you an America.

Even CNN had to acknowledge President Donald Trump’s amazing accomplishments, History in the making as Trump welcomes prisoners home.

Just maybe, the extraordinary scene that unfolded in the dead of night on an airfield outside Washington early Thursday is the start of something truly historic.

President Donald Trump welcomed home three American prisoners from North Korea, citing their release as proof that his diplomacy with the isolated state is delivering. In what must have been a surreal experience, Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak-song and Kim Sang Duk — who were only released from custody on Wednesday — were suddenly plunged into a media circus.

“I think you probably broke the all-time in history television rating for 3 o’clock in the morning,” Trump told reporters at Joint Base Andrews as he stood alongside the freed prisoners.

Daily Mail:

In extraordinary scenes, Trump and the first lady clapped and cheered as the men walked down the steps with their arms in the air and giving triumphant ‘V’ signs signifying both peace and victory.

Their first steps back on American soil came hours earlier, in Alaska, when the plane carrying them home stopped to refuel.

On the tarmac in suburban Maryland, Trump said: ‘These are great people. Frankly, we didn’t think this was going to happen, but it did. It was important to get these people out. This is a special night for these three really great people.’

Trump also thanked Kim Jong-un for freeing ‘the folks early.’ calling it ‘a wonderful thing’ and adding he believes the North Korean despot ‘really wants to do something’ and bring the hermit kingdom ‘into the real world.’

He said: ‘We’re starting off on a new footing. I really think we have a very good chance of doing something very meaningful, and if anybody would’ve said that five years ago, 10 years ago, even a year ago, you would’ve said, ‘That’s not possible.’

‘My proudest achievement will be when we denuclearize that entire [Korean] peninsula,’ he added.
