President Trump’s victory lap

President Trump went on Sean Hannity’s Fox show Wednesday night to take his victory lap after being vindicated by the Robert Mueller’s report.

Trump hammered home a number of times that “These treasonous acts against a president can never happen again.” Although he never called it an attempted coup, this is what will come out in the future.

The President says he will release the unredacted FISA applications and all the associated documents that were used to get a warrant to spy on American citizens working on the Trump presidential campaign.

As I have written earlier this week, the full extent of the FISA release will be curtailed due to the explosive information contained within the documents. The limited release will probably come much closer to the 2020 election to take back the House under Republican control. As the drops say, “FISA brings down the house.”

Trump also had some choice words for his most vocal critics from the Alt Left. On ex-CIA chief John Brennan, the president said:

“I think Brennan’s a sick person, I really do,” Trump said. “I believe there’s something wrong with him, for him to come out of the CIA and act that way was so disrespectful to the country and to the CIA. He was not considered good at what he did. He was never a respected guy.”

On Californian Congressman Adam Schiff, the president had this to say:

¬†“Schiff is a bad guy, he knew he was lying — he’s not a dummy. For a year and a half he would just leak and call up CNN and others. You know, I watch him, so sanctimonious … He knew it was a lie, and he’d get in the back room with his friends in the Democrat Party, and they would laugh like hell. In one way, you could say it’s a crime what he did — he was making statements he knew were false. He’s a disgrace to our country.”

The president also added that Schiff should be impeached and thrown out of the House for his actions on the Intelligence committee.

So now President Trump will move on to getting back to his agenda and putting pieces together for his 2020 campaign without the looming collusion narrative hanging over his head.

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.
