Another Dimension to the Russia Collusion Scandal

Featured image In the wake of the risible Sussman verdict, it has emerged that for the last ten years, the FBI has maintained a “secure work environment” within the offices of Perkins Coie, the Democratic Party’s law firm. Marc Elias, the DNC’s top lawyer, was until recently a partner in Perkins Coie. It was Perkins Coie that laundered the money the DNC and the Hillary Clinton campaign paid Fusion GPS for what »

Sussmann acquitted

Featured image Well, of course, that didn’t take long. The guilty guilty guilty Perkins Coie/HRC attorney Michael Sussmann was acquitted by his District of Columbia peers/HRC campaign donors sitting in judgment on his case.

Today former FBI general counsel James Baker testified that Sussman told him that »

Speaking of “disinformation”

Featured image The Axelrod/Atlantic conference on “Disinformation and the erosion of democracy” held at the University of Chicago earlier this month included a rogue’s gallery of purveyors of disinformation. We covered the conference in some detail as renegade students at the Chicago Thinker “staged a media regime takedown,” as the editors put it. The Axelrod/Atlantic conference on “disinformation” was followed by Barack Obama’s April 21 contribution at Stanford University. Obama gave his »
