GOP Sen Johnson on Former FBI Director Comey Having Perjured Himself: ‘He Might Be in Trouble’


Thursday on his syndicated radio show, talk show host Hugh Hewitt asked for Sen. Ron Johnson’s (R-WI) reaction to reports that former FBI Director James Comey may have prematurely drafted a memo exonerating Hillary Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, for any alleged wrongdoing regarding her use of an unauthorized email server. The memo was drafted two months before the FBI’s final determined about the server used by Clinton while secretary of state. Johnson was asked by Hewitt if the way the investigation was conducted could have contradicted Comey’s testimony before a U.S. Senate committee and potentially meant Comey perjured himself. Partial transcript as follows (courtesy of HughHewitt.com): HEWITT: What about the Comey letter, the May memo before the July decision? Does that give you qualms, Senator Johnson? JOHNSON: Absolutely. My committee is trying to get the unredacted testimony from those FBI agents to get more information. There’s a number of committees trying to get to the truth on that as well. HEWITT: Last question, do you believe that the existence of that draft memo undermines Jim Comey’s testimony to the extent that it might go into question its truthfulness before the Senate? JOHNSON: Yes, I always thought the investigation into

Schweizer: Hillary Claim of Lack of Awareness on Uranium One Deal ‘Stretches Credulity,’ Investigation Warranted


Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Breitbart News senior editor-at-large Peter Schweizer, author of “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich,” discussed the Clintons’ involvement with the Uranium One deal. That deal allocated Russia 20 percent of the United States’ strategic uranium reserves. Hillary Clinton, who was secretary of state at the time of the U.S. government’s approval of the deal, has denied involvement in that approval process. That claim according to Schweizer “stretches credulity” and warrants an investigation. Transcript as follows: CARLSON: Peter Schweizer originally broke this story in a book called “Clinton Cash,” he’s been covering it ever since and he joins us now. Peter, thanks for coming on. SCHWEIZER: Tucker, thanks for having me. CARLSON: So, this is a kind of confusing cover to the story. The person who apparently has first-hand evidence that the Russian government tried to get the Clintons to support the deal has been prevented from speaking even to Congress, how can that be and what’s the justification for that? SCHWEIZER: Well, that’s a great question, Tucker. What we know, apparently based on the reporting is that he has been put under a gag

Holder Defends Comey for Drafting Exoneration Before Completing Clinton Investigation


Wednesday on CNN’s “The Lead,” former Obama administration Attorney General Eric Holder said that former FBI Director James Comey drafting his statement on the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server before interviewing her was appropriate. Holder said, “He’s an honest guy, and the determination that he made, and I think inappropriately announced, I think is based on the facts, based on his interpretation of the law, and it was nothing more than that,” Holder said. “It was a good-faith assessment by a person who I think has done a lot for this country.” He continued, “You can make determinations about where an investigation is likely to go before you actually speak to the subject of that investigation. That inquiry had been underway for an extended period of time.” He added, “A lot of resources had been used. A lot of people had been spoken to. A lot of documents had been reviewed. So you can get to, you know, pretty close to the end of an investigation and understand where you’re going to go with it before you actually talk to the subject of the investigation.” (h/t WFB) Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

Bombshell: Longtime Clinton Friend Admits ‘Warning’ Top-Level Democrats About Weinstein

Linda Bloodworth-Thomason, the creator of the iconic 90s sitcom Designing Women and a close friend for decades of Bill and Hillary Clinton, admits that she not only knew of producer Harvey Weinstein’s predations, but that she warned “top-level” Democrats about him. Buried deep within a Hollywood Reporter guest column, Bloodworth-Thomason drops this bombshell (with a deflecting shot at Fox News): “I confess to having had no problem warning at least three top-level Democratic operatives against allowing Harvey Weinstein to host political fundraisers. A warning that evidently (and to the glee of Fox News) fell on deaf ears.” She also says she was a member of “a ‘Let’s Bring Harvey Weinstein Down’ lunch club” and appears to express some disbelief towards those who, “despite knowing him for decades,” now “announce they had no idea what was going on.” To this, she writes, “OK. Whatever.” If Bloodworth-Thomason knew about Weinstein’s alleged predations and warned top-level Democrats, how difficult is it to add two and two to come up with the Clintons and the Democrat Party knew? Certainly, and we have no reason to doubt Bloodworth-Thomason, at least three top-level Democrats knew, and did nothing to stop Weinstein from becoming a major player and
