Trey Gowdy Not Running For Re-Election
Did not see this one coming. I think this makes 26 GOP House members not running for re-election now.
[Axios] South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy announced he was not running for re-election on Wednesday.

"I will not be filing for re-election to Congress nor seeking any other political or elected office; instead I will be returning to the justice system."

‐ Trey Gowdy

#5  The Deep State must have something on him

I dunno, Gowdy seems clean. I would think that the D.C. burn-out factor is high. He'd been at it a long time. Maybe he figured he was not accomplishing what he wanted or that he was away from his family too much. He seems like a more than capable guy when compared to other Congresscritters--some are bottom feeders who should have been gone long ago; he wasn't that sort. I got a long list of others who ought to go; he's not on my list.

Joe Kennedy III - A 'Star' Is Born
1) Nothing says 'new, modern Democratic Party' like the runt of the Kennedy litter; 2) Yes, he was drooling, or he forgot to wipe the jizz off of his mouth.
[TheWrap] Many Democrats on Twitter praised Massachusetts Rep. Joe Kennedy III on Tuesday for a State of the Union response that was inclusive and impassioned. Republicans said he was literally drooling.

The response to the State of the Union is an unenviable job ‐ the speaker needs to follow the president, spelling out an agenda from the ultimate bully pulpit. Many on the left said Kennedy, grandson of Robert F. Kennedy, did his ancestors proud by appealing to struggling Americans from all walks of life.

But look at the right side of his mouth, said Republicans. That’s spittle!
The speech was a decent one for the first couple of minutes but quickly devolved into the usual litany of Democratic clichés and talking points.

#1  I thought that was just me; first attributed the glare on his right side to bad lighting...then it got bigger...then on his left side.

The speech itself was ok, bland, and predictable. The delivery, whiney and disconnected. We were the ones who waded into the waters to rescue people? Really Uncle Joey?

#2  He was pathetic. He sounded like something you'd hear in a high school speech class. He was obviously nervous, looked like he was breaking out in flop sweat. He did a lot of whining and had very few facts. The kid is still wet behind the ears and nowhere near ready for prime time.

BREAKING. John Kelly Gave Some Bad News To Rosenstein And Wray
h/t Hot Air
The White House received the famous memo compiled by the House Intelligence Committee alleging abuses in the use of the Trump dossier shortly after the House vote yesterday. They are now in their second day of reviewing the document.

...According to a breaking story in the Washington Post, Rod Rosenstein and Christopher Wray paid a visit to the White House to try to prevent release of the memo

...Shortly before the House Intelligence Committee voted to make the document public, Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein warned Kelly that the four-page memo prepared by House Republicans could jeopardize classified information and implored the president to reconsider his support for making it public, those people said. Rosenstein was joined in the meeting at the White House by FBI Director Christopher A. Wray.

...In response, Kelly told Rosenstein and Wray that the president was still inclined to release the memo but the White House would go through a review led by the National Security Council and the White House Counsel’s Office, a senior administration official said. That review is expected to take at least several days, a senior White House official said.

...Their argument is utter bullsh**. What they are doing is closing ranks to try to protect their bureaucracies from criticism. Good work if you can get it, but it would be a major shock if Trump, the reality TV maestro, allowed this kind of a a tease and anticipation to build and then acted like Geraldo Rivera investigating Al Capone’s Vault.

Timing is slightly suspect on the downturn. Could have also been computerized selling and profit taking. More of the same could indicate a sustaining downward trend. I don't look for that to happen.

#5  And they've been hiding behind this classified argument long enough. Baraq said they have evidence to prove Russians hacked the DNC server but he can't release it because it's classified. That's awfully convenient and it will not suffice in court. It's wearing thin for the FBI and Democrats too. Is it classified because they're trying to keep from going to jail? We need to have this thing out.

Stormy Daniels: an affair that never was
h/t Instapundit
[PowerLine]...Ms. Daniels issued her "Official Statement" on tabloid claims that she had an affair with Donald Trump more than a decade ago:

To Whom It May Concern:

Over the past few weeks I have been asked countless times to comment on reports of an alleged sexual relationship I had with Donald Trump many, many, many years ago.

The fact of the matter is that each party to this alleged affair denied its existence in 2006, 2011, 2016, 2017 and now again in 2018. I am not denying this affair because I was paid "hush money" as has been reported in overseas owned tabloids. I am denying this affair because it never happened.

I will have no further comment on this matter.

Luis Gutierrez triggered by ‘USA!’ chants, flees House chamber
[THEAMERICANMIRROR] Luis Gutierrez, the illegal alien-loving congressman from Illinois, appeared to be triggered during President Trump’s soaring rhetoric during the State of the Union address and fled the House chamber.

Trump praised the Capitol building, calling it a monument to the American people.

As applause broke out, so did chants of "USA! USA! USA!"

Gutierrez left his seat as several Democrats patted him on the arm as he retreated to a safe space.

Oh Lordy – FBI Director Wray Sent 'Counterintelligence Official' To Review Memo Prior to Committee Vote…
[ConservativeTreehouse] Well, well, well... Snap. This is an interesting development, potentially quite explosive, and, perhaps, stunningly affirmational.

According to Catherine Herridge, after Chairman Nunes personally took FBI Director Christopher Wray to view the "Intel Memo" on Sunday night, and prior to the House Intel Committee vote to release the memo Monday evening, FBI Director Christopher Wray sent a Main Justice official and a "counterintelligence official" to view the content.

According to her report, those officials: "could not point to any factual inaccuracies."

Catherine Herridge ‐ Two senior FBI officials have now reviewed a controversial Republican staff memo alleging abuses of government surveillance programs during the 2016 presidential campaign, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News ‐ adding that the officials "could not point to any factual inaccuracies."

The two officials ‐ one from the bureau’s counterintelligence division and the other from the legal division ‐ followed up after an initial review of the memo during a rare Sunday trip to Capitol Hill by FBI Director Christopher Wray.

The House Intelligence Committee voted late Monday along party lines to release the memo, prompting a backlash from Democratic lawmakers. Top Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff called it a "very sad day." President Trump has five working days to review the contents but is widely expected not to block its release.

After the contentious committee vote Monday night, the source confirmed that House staffers physically took the memo over to the White House for the president.

Now, there is no explanation as to the sub-department origin of the Main Justice official, or whether that person was from the DOJ National Security Division. However, on the other side of the Justice Department, the official is identified as ’counterintelligence’.

Understanding the sensitivity of the matter (no pun intended), Director Wray likely sent a top official from Main Justice, and likely the top official within the FBI Counterintelligence division. The top official within FBI counterintelligence is still the same official present during the 2016/2017 "Trump Operation". That top counterintelligence official is Bill Priestap.

If Director Wray sent FBI Director of Counterintelligence Bill Priestap to the House SCIF to review the content, and Bill Priestap said he "could not point to any factual inaccuracies", then it is virtually certain that Priestap is cooperating (ie. flipped).
Continues.

#1  Oh my! Bill P. flipped, turning States evidence? Time to stretch the ropes and load check the trap door.
Posted by: Betty Hatfield5124 || 01/31/2018 0:54 Comments || Top||

#2  Either Wray sent Priestap over to check the memo or he sent him over to "read and then come back and explain yourself." I suppose the "explain yourself" part flipped Priestap.

Flipping Priestap would be good news as he is privy to a lot of dirty administration laundry as those FISA warrants and other tidbits had to cross his desk in process.

Yep, if Priestap is truly on board with the investigation...and we don't know completely what kind of dirt Horowitz has unearthed...then all of these anti-Trump warriors left over from the prior administration will find themselves in deep doodoo.
