Senate documents show FBI trying to suppress release of new Trump dossier info

The FBI secretly used the Steele dossier to convince a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to permit one of the most sensitive invasions of privacy against a U.S. citizen: electronic surveillance by the government. Top Obama and Trump officials signed four wiretap applications against Trump adviser Carter Page starting in fall of 2016 — a month before the presidential election — relying, in part, on the dossier. That’s according to House Republicans who, on Friday, released a summary of classified documents they reviewed.

Hillary Clinton Chose to Shield a Top Adviser Accused of Sexual Harassment in 2008

WASHINGTON — A senior adviser to Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign who was accused of repeatedly sexually harassing a young subordinate was kept on the campaign at Mrs. Clinton’s request, according to four people familiar with what took place.

Mrs. Clinton’s campaign manager at the time recommended that she fire the adviser, Burns Strider. But Mrs. Clinton did not. Instead, Mr. Strider was docked several weeks of pay and ordered to undergo counseling, and the young woman was moved to a new job.

Mr. Strider, who was Mrs. Clinton’s faith adviser, a co-founder of the American Values Network, and sent the candidate scripture readings every morning for months during the campaign, was hired five years later to lead an independent group that supported Mrs. Clinton’s 2016 candidacy, Correct the Record, which was created by a close Clinton ally, David Brock.

Clintons as tornadoes moving through others’ lives

From Jonah Goldberg at Townhall:

The Clintons saw themselves as better than the institutions they were supposed to serve, from the White House and the State Department to the Democratic Party and even the country. The rules are for other people. That’s why Clinton Inc. collected millions upon millions of dollars from foreign governments, Wall Street and Hollywood while demonizing their opponents as shills for corporations and wealthy interests. That’s why Hillary flouted the rules for her email server. That’s why Bill flouted the rules for pretty much everything.

And at every step, they expected others to protect them, lie for them, clean up after them and, if necessary, go to jail for them.

As James McDougal, a former friend and business partner of the Clintons (in the now ancient Whitewater land deal turned scandal) put it, “I think the Clintons are really sort of like tornadoes moving through people’s lives. I’m just one of the people left in the wake of their passing by.”More.

Reality check: It’s curious that Trump’s bad boy antics seem so much worse to the elite. Our American friend thinks Trump will win in 2020. Readers?

Rex Murphy: There is a Clinton angle to every great scandal

In ancient days, when a group of women came forward with distressing stories about harassment or assault by a powerful, predatory, priapic male they were frequently dismissed with callous, viciously mean-spirited scorn. James Carville, the Lex Luthor brain behind Bill and Hillary Clinton’s ascension from the back roads of Arkansas to the splendours of Pennsylvania Avenue, backhanded Paula Jones’s allegations against Bill Clinton with the memorable snarl “Drag a hundred-dollar bill through a trailer park, you never know what you’ll find.” That was a savage line even in the 1990s.
