U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Monday designated five groups, including the Lebanese Hezbollah and the Central American street gang MS-13, as “top transnational organized crime threats,” targeting them for stepped up prosecutions by the Justice Department.
A federal judge declined to give jail time to former Democratic IT aide Imran Awan Tuesday, saying he has “suffered enough” at the hands of politicians “at the highest levels of government.” In addition, the Department of Justice said it did not find any evidence that supported criminal charges.

The Democrats and the media spent a week lying to the American people about the “memo.”
The memo was full of “classified information” and releasing” it would expose “our spying methods.” By “our,” they didn’t mean American spying methods. They meant Obama’s spying methods.
Republicans appear to be proceeding with the release of a much-hyped memo that purportedly reveals government surveillance abuse — despite Justice Department officials describing such a move as “extraordinarily reckless.”
The Justice Department has started recovering some of the missing texts between two FBI officials under scrutiny for alleged anti-Trump views, Fox News’ Sean Hannity reported on Wednesday’s “Hannity,” citing DOJ sources … 50,000 missing text messages between FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page over a five-month period have been at the center of controversy on Capitol Hill since the DOJ notified congressional committees that there was a gap in records between Dec. 14, 2016, and May 17, 2017. Strzok and Page – and the integrity of the FBI – have been under the microscope after it was revealed that the two former members of Robert Mueller’s team exchanged a series of anti-Trump texts during the presidential campaign.
On the orders of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Justice Department prosecutors have begun asking FBI agents to explain the evidence they found in a now dormant criminal investigation into a controversial uranium deal that critics have linked to Bill and Hillary Clinton, multiple law enforcement officials told NBC News.
Holder obviously is lying awake with the investigation on his mind. Recently, the Senate Judiciary Committee announced they will open a probe into Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s efforts to influence FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 Presidential election. Perhaps Holder’s tweet is a sort of warning aimed at Lynch. Actually, there are plenty of people he could be referring to.
DOJ turned down the case because it would make presidential candidate Hillary Clinton look bad.
“Defendant shall take all necessary and reasonable steps to ensure the preservation of all agency records and potential agency records between the dates of December 1, 2014 and November 7, 2016 in any personal email account of Assistant Attorney General for Legislative Affairs Peter Kadzik. Any question about whether a record is an agency record shall be resolved in favor of it being an agency record.”
Last July, Comey was criticized by Republicans for declining to recommend charges related to Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state. Just days before November’s presidential election, he wrote a letter reigniting the controversy. Now, the department will review both incidents to determine if the actions were legitimate.
From the beginning of 2015 through last March, the Denver Sheriff Department went on a major hiring binge, adding more than 200 new deputies. But those jobs ended up only going to citizens, because the department made citizenship a stated requirement on the job application. The department admitted as much in a new settlement with the U.S. government, which requires it to pay a $10,000 fine.
“Who knew that simple questions regarding Attorney General Lynch’s approval of billions of dollars in payments to Iran could be so controversial that she would refuse to answer them?” Pompeo said. “This has become the Obama administration’s coping mechanism for anything related to the Islamic Republic of Iran—hide information, obfuscate details, and deny answers to Congress and the American people.”
The Justice Department is significantly reducing the number of federal observers stationed inside polling places in next month’s election at the same time that voters will face strict new election laws in more than a dozen states.
These laws, including requirements to present certain kinds of photo identification, are expected to lead to disputes at the polls. Adding to the potential for confusion, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has called for his supporters to police the polls themselves for fraud.
