BUSTED: MSNBC Host Forced to CORRECT Bogus Sekulow Story

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.12.17

Just days after several news outlets were forced to “retract” multiple phony stories regarding President Trump and his relationship with Russia, MSNBC found itself in the hot-seat on Tuesday; “correcting” a bogus report about Trump’s lawyer and his “alleged call” for another special counsel.

MSNBC anchor and legal correspondent Ari Melber viciously attacked the President’s attorney on social media this week, saying Jay Sekulow had “crossed a line” in his calls for an investigation into Mueller’s months-long witch-hunt.

One problem: Sekulow never cited Mueller as a factor behind his decision, instead saying there was a “conflict regarding Fusion GPS and Bruce Orr,” adding this “has nothing to do with Bob Mueller or Mueller’s team.”

“My concern from the outset has been that the whole Fusion GPS, Christopher Steele fake dossier was utilized to get FISA warrants. There’s indications that’s probably what happened,” Jay Sekulow told Sean Hannity. “That raised a very serious problem in our view. I thought as a lawyer that a special counsel needs to be appointed just to investigate these multiple conflicts of interest as it relates to the Fusion GPS – Bruce Orr situation.”

“This was a very clear statement, I was very specific […] I said please understand none of this is about Bob Mueller,” he added.

Listen to Sekulow set-the-record straight above.

DOJ Searching Trove of Texts from Anti-Trump Agent

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.08.17

The Department of Justice is rummaging through “over 10,000 texts” between the FBI agent recently demoted from Robert Mueller’s investigation for his “anti-Trump bias” and his counterparts at the special counsel’s office.

DOJ officials tell Fox News they’re currently sifting through 10,000 text exchanges to determine the extent of Strzok’s bias, and whether his personal opinions of President Trump impacted his ability to impartially conduct his investigation.

Peter Strzok was secretly re-assigned to the FBI’s Human Resources Department earlier this year after Robert Mueller was informed of his Trump-hating text exchanges with other investigators.

The revelation of anti-Trump operatives inside the special counsel’s office prompted an immediate response from GOP leaders and officials; questioning Mueller’s ability to properly investigate allegations of Russian-Trump collusion throughout the 2016 presidential race.

They’re not the only ones.

The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board published a scathing op-ed piece on Thursday, citing the text exchanges and other mistakes as irreparably damaging the special counsel’s office and demanding Mueller’s immediate resignation from the investigation.

BIAS ALERT: Mueller's No. 2 SECRETLY SLAMMED Trump's Travel Ban

A senior-level prosecutor now serving as a Deputy to special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia-Trump investigation found himself in hot-water on Tuesday, following reports he praised acting Attorney General Sally Yates after she publicly defied President Trump’s travel ban last January, reports Fox News.

The correspondence, obtained by government watch-dog agency Judicial Watch, shows that Andrew Weissmann emailed Yates in late January with the subject line, “I am so proud.”

“And in awe. Thank you so much. All my deepest respects,” the email continued.

Sally Yates was publicly fired by President Trump after she refused to enforce his executive order regarding immigration and refugees from specific countries around the world.

The news follows another revelation that a senior investigator inside the special counsel’s office was demoted earlier this year for his “anti-Trump bias;” being relocated to the Human Resources Department at the FBI after his “unprofessional” text exchanges were reviewed by Mueller’s team.

“Andrew Weisman, a key prosecutor on Robert Mueller’s team, praised Obama DOJ holdover Sally Yates after she lawlessly thwarted President Trump,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

“How much more evidence do we need that the Mueller operation has been irredeemably compromised by anti-Trump partisans?” he asked.
