- , Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross argued that the North American economy might benefit from the outbreak as companies “reevaluate their supply chains” to factor in emergent outbreak risk.
- While Ross insisted that he didn’t want to appear insensitive, it’s pretty clear to him that the outbreak could help “accelerate the return of jobs to North America.”
- “First of all, every American’s heart has to go out to the victims of the coronavirus. I don’t want to talk about a victory lap over a very unfortunate very malignant disease. But the fact is, it does give business another thing to consider when they go through their review of their supply chain.
- Hillary Clinton has ducked a process server trying to serve her with Tulsi Gabbard’s defamation lawsuit on two occasions, according to Gabbard’s attorney, Brian Dunne.
- “I find it rather unbelievable that Hillary Clinton is so intimidated by Tulsi Gabbard that she won’t accept service of process,” Dunne told the New York Post, adding “But I guess here we are.“
Dunne said their process server first attempted to effect service at Clinton’s house in Chappaqua on Tuesday afternoon — but was turned away by Secret Service agents.
The agents directed the server to Clinton’s lawyer, David Kendall, who on Wednesday claimed at his Washington, DC, firm, Williams & Connolly, that he was unable to accept service on Clinton’s behalf,
- House impeachment manager Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) repeatedly told the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump that the House case was “proven beyond any doubt at all.”
- Nadler’s odd, and repeated, claim seemed to undermine claims by Democrats that they needed to see more witnesses and documents in the trial. The House Judiciary Committee chairman played an unusually understated role in the first day of the question-and-answer session in the Senate.
- Republicans have asked that if Democrats are so confident in their case — confident enough to impeach a president for only the third time in American history — then they should allow that case to stand or fall based on the evidence collected in the House, not by adding new evidence.
- Oh, this sideshow just keeps getting better and better…

- Former White House national security adviser John Bolton pocketed $115,000 from Ukrainian steel oligarch Victor Pinchuk’s foundation shortly before entering President Donald Trump’s White House as national security adviser, a position first held in the Trump White House by General Michael Flynn.
- A financial disclosure shows that Bolton accepted $115,000 from the Victor Pinchuk Foundation for a pair of speeches in September 2017 and February 2018.

- While speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) stated that if witnesses are called in the Senate’s impeachment trial, there will be 53 Republican votes in favor of calling 2020 Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter as a witness in the trial.
- Graham said, “If there’s going to be one witness, there will be more. And there’s 53 Republican votes to call Hunter Biden, not 51, not 52. Because all of us believe that if this trial goes on, Hunter Biden is a very relevant witness.”

BREAKING: General Flynn Files Motion to Withdraw Guilty Plea and Dismiss Case Against Him for Egregious Government Misconduct …Update: Federal Prosecutors Soften Stance
Michael Flynn Just Called the Former Special Counsel’s Bluff in a Big Way
- Yesterday, Michael Flynn’s legal team, led by attorney Sidney Powell, filed a “Supplemental Motion to Withdraw Plea of Guilty” on behalf of the retired lieutenant general. Between the motion and the accompanying exhibits, which together exceeded 200 pages, Powell exposed several more troubling details about the prosecution of Flynn, involving both the special counsel team and Flynn’s previous attorneys.
- At the time Flynn entered his plea, he was represented by Robert Kelner and Stephen Anthony of the well-respected Washington firm of Covington and Burling, LLP.
- In determining whether a “fair and just reason” exists, courts consider three factors: “(1) whether the defendant has asserted a viable claim of innocence; (2) whether the delay between the guilty plea and the motion to withdraw has substantially prejudiced the government’s ability to prosecute the case; and (3) whether the guilty plea was somehow tainted.”
- Powell’s brief walked through these three factors, stressing first that Flynn is innocent of the charge that he lied to the FBI. Powell’s analysis of this factor followed her opening plea to Judge Sullivan to recall that “more than a year ago, at the December 18, 2018, Sentencing Hearing, this Court declared that it could not ‘recall any incident in which the Court has ever accepted a plea of guilty from someone who maintained that he was not guilty,’ and that it did not ‘intend to start’ that day.”
- Next, Powell argued that there is no prejudice to the government’s ability to prosecute the case. No witnesses have died, no evidence has been lost, and the prosecution remains equally able to make out its case—if it had one—now as at the time Flynn entered his guilty plea.
- Finally, Powell addressed the heart of the issue: the third factor and whether Flynn’s plea was somehow tainted. It was, Powell posited, because of the ineffective assistance of counsel Flynn received both at his December 2017 plea hearing and again when Sullivan quizzed him about his guilt at the December 2018 sentencing hearing.
- After setting out the governing legal standard for ineffective assistance of counsel—that “counsel’s advice was not ‘within the range of competence demanded of attorneys in criminal cases,’ and that as a result he was prejudiced, i.e. ‘there is a reasonable probability that, but for counsel’s errors, he would not have pleaded guilty and would have insisted on going to trial’”—Powell dedicates the remaining 30-plus pages of her brief to proving Flynn’s Covington lawyers provided ineffective assistance to Flynn.
- Before Flynn signed the plea, he ‘specifically instructed Anthony and Kelner to call [the Special Counsel] immediately and ask if the agents believed that he lied.’
- His Lawyers Told Him Not to Withdraw His Guilty Plea
- Flynn took their advice, telling Judge Sullivan that he did not want to withdraw his plea, and that he was pleading guilty because he was guilty. But that decision was premised on ineffective assistance of counsel, Powell argued.
- Michael Flynn Was Threatened, Too
- Flynn’s plea and his decision to stand by that plea when appearing before Judge Sullivan in December 2018, was also the result of “undisclosed promises and threats,” Powell argued. “The government leveraged the threat of charges against Mr. Flynn’s son to induce that agreement,” Powell maintained, adding, “yet the government’s decision not to charge his son was not reduced to writing as part of the plea agreement; it was a secret, side deal between counsel.”
- It was “that ‘understanding,’” however, that “was one of two necessary preconditions for Mr. Flynn to enter into the plea agreement,” Powell stressed. But “the government and Mr. Flynn’s prior counsel chose not to disclose that agreement to this court,” Powell concluded.
- It may be some time before we know how Judge Sullivan reacts to Powell’s latest filing, as the government has until February 18, 2020 to file its reply to the Flynn’s supplemental motion to withdraw his guilty plea. In the meantime, or soon after, the long-time federal judge will likely call on the Covington lawyers to testify under oath concerning Flynn’s allegations. Flynn and even the federal prosecutors might also find themselves facing questions from Judge Sullivan.
Long story short. His former counsel Covington Burling hung him out to dry to protect their own self interest.

- Dr. Ron Paul claimed that he thought fears about the virus were overblown. He said the virus is being reported on “way out of proportion with the amount of attention people should be giving it.”
“The danger is way overblown. There’s no way what I’m saying is perfectly clear, I’m just going by my best and what’s happened in the past,” he said.
- When asked about the origins of the virus and whether he thought it could have been human-made, he said
“About whether or not it came from a laboratory or was produced deliberately, I just don’t think so.”
- “It’s all a gimmick, probably to try and sell more vaccines,” Dr. Paul commented when asked about whether or not he believed China’s data about the virus.
As many as 646,000 people may die from influenza each year worldwide, according to the latest estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — a larger number than what other health experts have predicted in years past.

- A woman accusing President Trump of raping her decades ago has asked for a DNA sample to determine if his genetic material is on a dress she says she wore during the incident.
- Writer E. Jean Carroll’s lawyers served notice to a Trump attorney Thursday for the president to submit a DNA sample on March 2 in Washington for “analysis and comparison against unidentified male DNA present on the dress,” the Associated Press reported.
- Carroll, 76, sued Trump, 73, for defamation last year, claiming he lied when he denied her accusations that he raped her in a dressing room at Manhattan department store Bergdorf Goodman in the 1990s. Trump called Carroll a liar and claimed he had never met her.
And now she is back, using the same tactic they used on clinton, now why would they bring this up exactly at this momement, because they know they have nothing and they are losing, and their is no Step 5, now they are going to throw everything at Trump, including the kitchen sink.
These people are stupid.
Sessions: Justice Department has 27 investigations into ‘epidemic’ of leaks
- The Justice Department has a whopping 27 open investigations into leaks of classified information with a “political motive,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions revealed Tuesday — that’s three times more than the agency has had in the three years prior.
- The nation’s top law enforcement officer gave new details on the active probes during his highly anticipated testimony before the House Judiciary Committee.
- “Leaks have reached epidemic proportions,” Sessions said. “We have 27 ongoing investigations, some of those involve leaks before President Trump took office, and some after.”
- Sessions added: “But before that, it was only three per year — there were nine. There are three times as many this year as in the entire three years before being investigated.”

DOJ relents, says it would accept probation for Michael Flynn as he moves to withdraw guilty plea
- The Department of Justice backed down from seeking jail time Wednesday and made clear that prosecutors would accept mere probation in the case of former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn — a shift that comes as Flynn moves to withdraw his guilty plea leveraging accusations of government misconduct.
- Just weeks ago, the DOJ said it would seek up to six months of prison time for the retired Army lieutenant general who spent just 24 days at his post in the Trump administration. Represented by an aggressive new attorney, Flynn days later had moved to withdraw his guilty plea for making false statements to two FBI agents in 2017 — statements that eventually wrapped him up in former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
- “In truth, I never lied,” Flynn wrote in a new supplemental motion to withdraw his guilty plea filed Wednesday. “My guilty plea has rankled me throughout this process, and while I allowed myself to succumb to the threats from the government to save my family, I believe I was grossly misled about what really happened.”
- Flynn also blamed his former lawyers for providing him with bad information that led him to plead guilty.
My question today is about whether or not individuals who were holdovers from the Obama National Security Council and Democrat partisans conspired with Schiff staffers to plot impeaching the President before there were formal House impeachment proceedings.
— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) January 30, 2020
My exact question was:
Are you aware that House intelligence committee staffer Shawn Misko had a close relationship with Eric Ciaramella while at the National Security Council together 1/2
— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) January 30, 2020
and are you aware and how do you respond to reports that Ciaramella and Misko may have worked together to plot impeaching the President before there were formal house impeachment proceedings. 2/2
— Senator Rand Paul (@RandPaul) January 30, 2020
My question is not about a “whistleblower” as I have no independent information on his identity. My question is about the actions of known Obama partisans within the NSC and House staff and how they are reported to have conspired before impeachment proceedings had even begun.

Remember these names. Michael Carpenter & NSC’s Liz Zentos
Michael Carpenter was sitting next to Biden when he let everyone know how he forced the Ukranian prosecutor out, who was investigating Hunter by withholding
BREAKING: Deputy Trump counsel Philbin just told the Senate the “whistleblower” may have had a “conflict of interest” in filing his complaint, because he may have been involved in decisions on Biden & Burisma & may have had a “reason to deep-six” a rekindled Ukraine investigation
— Paul Sperry (@paulsperry_) January 30, 2020
FACT: The whistleblower’s communications with Schiff’s staff BEFORE he formally filed a complaint are NOT protected by any whistleblower statutes. The CIA operative has ZERO right to protection from exposure or even reprisals for the period running from July 26 to August 12, 2019

During this trial have noticed what they patriots have accomplished
- Biden Corruption explained, questions are being asked now
- Crossfire Hurricane mentioned
- Whistleblower continually brought up
Then we have exactly what the patriots have were looking for, all of this will be used later on.
- Using another country to interfere in an election is impeachable
- Quid Pro Quo is impeachable.
- a Sitting President to allow the department of justice to investigate a political rival’s campaign is impeachable
- a Sitting President spying on political rival’s campaign is impeachable
