GOP Representatives Refer James Comey, Hillary Clinton, McCabe & ex-AG Lynch for Criminal Investigation
Does Attorney General Jeff Sessions have the guts to do the right thing?
From FOX News, nearly a dozen Republican members of Congress have sent a criminal referral to the Justice Department and FBI seeking an investigation of former bureau boss James Comey, his deputy Andrew McCabe, ex-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Hillary Clinton in connection with 2016 campaign controversies. If Trump is going to be investigated, why shouldn’t Clinton, Comey, McCabe and Lynch also treated in a similar manner? Or do we have two sets of standards?
Attorney General Jeff Sessions already announced last month he had assigned a federal prosecutor to review some of those broader issues, while resisting calls for a second special counsel. But the referral represents an escalation of Republican pressure to probe top Democrats and Trump critics.
Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., and 10 other House lawmakers want an investigation into potential violations that cover everything from the handling of the Clinton email probe to the anti-Trump dossier’s funding to the Uranium One controversy. They made their case in a letter sent Wednesday to Sessions, FBI Director Christopher Wray, and U.S. Attorney John Huber, whom Sessions named to lead the previously announced evaluation.
Complaining about “dissimilar degrees of zealousness” in the investigations into Clinton and Trump campaign associates, they wrote:
“Because we believe that those in positions of high authority should be treated the same as every other American, we want to be sure that the potential violations of law outlined below are vetted appropriately.”
They named Comey, Clinton, Lynch, McCabe, FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page and several others as figures who should be investigated.
BARBARA BUSH, WIFE OF 41 AND MOTHER OF 43 HAS DIED.
Barbara Bush, only the second woman in American history who was the wife and mother of United States Presidents and the only woman in American history to be alive for both Presidencies, has died at the age of 92. We say goodbye to a true original. Barbara and George H.W. Bush were married for 73 years. A spokeswoman says former President George H.W. Bush held the hand of his wife, Barbara Bush, all day and was by her side when she died. Funeral services for Barbara Bush are planned for 11 a.m. Saturday at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church in Houston, which she and former President George H.W. Bush regularly attended. She was an amazing woman. She will be so missed, Rest In Peace.
”The American Dream is about equal opportunity for everyone who works hard. If we don’t give everyone the ability to simply read and write, then we aren’t giving everyone an equal chance to succeed.“
Barbara Bush, the widely admired wife of one president and the fiercely loyal mother of another, died Tuesday evening at her home in Houston. She was 92.
Jim McGrath, a family spokesman, announced the death in a statement posted to Twitter.
On Sunday, the office of her husband, former President George Bush, issued a statement saying that after consulting her family and her doctors, Mrs. Bush had “decided not to seek additional medical treatment and will instead focus on comfort care.”
The Bushes had celebrated their 73rd wedding anniversary in January, making them the longest-married couple in presidential history.
Mrs. Bush had been hospitalized with pneumonia in December 2013. She underwent surgery for a perforated ulcer in 2008 and had heart surgery four months later.

She was born Barbara Pierce on June 8, 1925, at a maternity hospital in New York City run by the Salvation Army principally for unwed mothers. The family obstetrician practiced there one month a year, and that month happened to be June. She was the third child of the former Pauline Robinson and Marvin Pierce. Her father was in the publishing business and eventually became president of the McCall publishing company. Her mother, the daughter of an Ohio Supreme Court justice, was active in civic affairs in Rye, N.Y., the New York City suburb where the family lived.
After graduating in 1942, Mr. Bush enlisted in the Navy and trained as a pilot. The next year, he was assigned to a torpedo squadron in the Pacific and piloted a Grumman Avenger. On one combat mission, in 1944, he was shot down and rescued by a submarine. Barbara did not hear from him for a month.
After enrolling at Smith College but before entering the freshman class, she shocked her mother by spending the summer working in a nuts-and-bolts factory.
She and Mr. Bush, on leave from the Navy, married in Rye on Jan. 6, 1945; the bride, not yet 20, had dropped out of Smith at the beginning of her sophomore year. “The truth is, I just wasn’t interested,” she said in interviews. “I was just interested in George.”

Barbara Bush delivered her speech to a less than thrilled audience as the liberal arts all women’s college had wanted another speaker. Little did they realize that she would win them over and give them pearls of wisdom they would use the rest of their lives. Barbara’s comments at the 9:36 mark of the video brought down the house!
George W. Bush discussed how lucky he was to have Barbara as his mother:
“Laura, Barbara, Jenna, and I are are sad, but our souls are settled because we know hers was,” George W. Bush said. “Barbara Bush was a fabulous First Lady and a woman unlike any other who brought levity, love, and literacy to millions. To us she was so much more.”
“Mom kept us on our toes and kept us laughing until the end,” George W. Bush said. “I’m a lucky man that Barbara Bush was my mother. Our family will miss her dearly, and we thank you all for your prayers and good wishes.”
Former President Jimmy Carter paid tribute to Barbara Bush’s “warmth, generosity and keen wit” following the former first lady’s death.
Carter says Bush was “the matriarch of a family dedicated to serving.” In a statement, he says that through Bush’s “work to promote literacy as a value in every American home, countless families now have the knowledge and skills they need to thrive in all aspects of their lives.”
Carter says he and former first lady Rosalynn Carter are saddened by her death and they’ll miss her.

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.

Former FBI Director James Comey Admits He Never Told President Trump That Steele Dossier Was Funded By DNC (VIDEO)
MAYBE COMEY IS EXAVTLY WHAT TRUMP CALLED HIM, A UNTRUTHFUL, LYING SLIME-BALL …
In a highly anticipated interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, fired FBI Director James Comey actually admitted that he never told President Donald Trump that the Steele dossier was funded by his political opponents. When hearing the surprising answer, even Stephanopoulos questioned such an action on the part of Comey. Stephanopoulos followed up and asked, “But did he have a right to know that?” Comey responded why, “I don’t know … it wasn’t necessary For my goal.” Hmm, and maybe that is the real question … WHAT WAS COMEY’S GOAL?
