TrumpTV may be more a reality after Hannity’s Clinton Foundation show switch

Fox News Channel changed plans late yesterday on a reportedly blockbuster breaking news topic for Sean Hannity’s show to rerun a 2004 interview with George HW Bush.

Hannity was supposed to have guests including a whistleblower on the Clinton Foundation named Dennis Cain, who had the FBI raid his house on Nov. 19 despite already handing over copies of the documents to Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz and House and Senate Intelligence committees.

The exact reason for the raid is unknown now, but speculation ranges from the FBI wanting to secure the original documents to Clinton sympathizers within the Department of Justice needing to get hold of the documents to determine how damning it is.

Senate Judiciary chair Charles Grassley sent a letter on Nov. 30 and revealed Monday to FBI Director Christopher Wray requesting answers as to why a recognized and cooperating whistleblower had FBI agents combing through his Maryland home for 6 hours after Cain told them he was cooperating on the investigation and then gave them the original documents of the copies he gave to congressional oversight members and Horowitz.

So into this fray, Hannity scheduled Cain, his lawyer Michael Socarras and another guest to speak about the potential criminal activity regarding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation and the Russian company that purchased Uranium One.

Horowitz was originally scheduled to testify on Wednesday to a House oversight committee chaired by Rep. Robert Goodlatte, but that hearing was postponed due to the federal holiday marking the death of the elder Bush.

The show had quite a buildup after it appeared President Trump sent this tweet out Monday night:

This could be the event that sparks TrumpTV. The former Fox News executive Bill Shine currently has the role of deputy chief of staff for communications and could be tapped to turn the URL TrumpTV into a government-run news program.

Trump tweeted this on Nov.26 after chastising CNN coverage:

Something has to be done, including the possibility of the United States starting our own Worldwide Network to show the World the way we really are, GREAT!

At this time it is not known what caused the last-minute change to Hannity’s programming and whether it will air Tuesday night.

Feinstein now worried about Kavanaugh’s FBI probe

Sen. Dianne Feinstein sent a letter to White House counsel Don McGahn and FBI director Christopher Wray on Sunday requesting the Trump directive to the FBI on the scope of the SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s probe.

Reports say Feinstein was requesting the presidential directive to see how limited it was as to who would be interviewed and who would not.

I look at the request from the standpoint that Feinstein needs to know how broad this probe could be. Has the FBI been tasked with finding out who leaked Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford’s name to the press? Did Senate members calculate that Ford’s story was not strong enough to bring it to the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee during the hearings, but leaked it out before the vote to stall the confirmation process?

Feinstein’s office had the original letter from Ford in July saying Kavanaugh assaulted her, but did nothing until late September when Ford’s charges were leaked to the press.

In her letter Feinstein asks:

“Given the seriousness of the allegations before the Senate, I am writing to request that you provide the Senate Judiciary Committee with a copy of the written directive sent by the White House to the FBI.”

And here’s the real reason for the information request by the California Democrat:

“In addition, if the FBI requests any expansion beyond the initial directive, please provide the names of any additional witnesses or evidence.”

The Democrats do not want to see a broader probe into how Ford’s name became public and who were compliant in that leak. Judiciary Committee chief Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley certainly does want to have a wider scope on the probe given past actions by the Democrats.

It is very similar to the FISA warrant in respects to the playbook. The FISA court turned down the first request to spy on Carter Page. FBI sycophants leaked information to the press in regards to the accusations. Brought those published pieces to the court in a second application for a warrant, and the FISA court granted the application.

Kavanaugh’s longest week puts FISA release on back burner

================== SPECIAL SUNDAY POSTING ===================

Don’t believe that the newest SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh/FBI probe will be done in a week.

This is but a prelude to a longer delay as the FBI will need more time to gather statements from secondary and tertiary individuals to back up each claim made by both Kavanaugh and his accuser Christine Blasey Ford.

Now we see why Trump was not too keen on meeting with Asst Attorney General Rod Rosenstein last week.

Rosenstein is overseeing the FBI in this matter and Director Christopher Wray will report to him on the findings. So in the world of 4-D chess a meeting with Rosenstein last week along with the release of the FISA documents would have thrown Kavanaugh under the bus this week.

While Sen Orrin Hatch has asked Wray to inform the White House council of any uncooperative witnesses in the probe, we will still see this investigation go into next week at the very least.

Why? To give the liberal media outlets more airtime to pound Kavanaugh for this and that, with the hope either he or the President will be forced to capitulate into pulling the nominee.

It’s shameful and a disgrace.

Just who was put in cages by news media Monday?

I wondered yesterday why did the immigration issue of splitting up families come out all over the place on Sunday?

The law to do just that with illegal immigrants was signed by President Clinton in 1996. This is not a President Trump initiative. I remember the young Cuban refugee Elian Gonzalez deportation case that Clinton’s Attorney General Janet Reno prosecuted in 2000.

So why was this coming up in the news now? Then I looked at the TV at work and the Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz was testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee on his report regarding the problems with the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was Secretary of State.

So look at the media coverage of that and it’s almost non-existent on Tuesday.

Kids in cages is what dominates the news today. Even The New York Post has a full-cover treatment of the immigration story. Throw in an audio purported to be children in the cages and you have a heart-tugging story that could have been reported anytime during the Obama and Bush terms.

No, don’t look behind the curtain. Don’t hear Horowitz desperately trying to defend himself and his report when it comes to no FBI political biases against Trump and the bungling of the probe into Hillary Clinton’s email server.

Most people won’t hear of the testimony that most of the team that exonerated Hillary Clinton then moved on to probe Trump and the alleged Russian collusion.

Republicans senators pointed out that Horowitz’s report found instances where FBI employees improperly received tickets to sporting events, golfing outings and drinks from reporters.

Or that why it took more than a month for FBI Agent Peter Strzok to subpoena Clinton aide Huma Abedin’s husband Anthony Weiner’s laptop after NYPD found treasure trove of classified information and child porn on it.

When asked about the delay in seizing Weiner’s laptop, Horowitz said, he did “not have confidence [the decision was] free from bias.”

Strzok ran both the Clinton email and Trump Russia probes and texted anti-Trump sentiments to Lisa Page a FBI attorney. Those texted included the infamous one where Page asks if Trump will be elected and Strzok writes, “No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it.”

But most Americans will not hear of these and many more exchanges because they were put in their own cages by the media on Tuesday.
