Fox News: David Bossie: Lying, leaking Andrew McCabe and fellow disgraced FBI hacks should be thoroughly investigated

Just when you think no one could be a sleazier swamp creature than fired FBI Director James Comey, fired Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe comes along.

McCabe and Comey have a lot in common. They’re both leakers. They’re both liars. And they’re both lousy political hacks who’ve written books that attempt to bleach history just like Hillary Clinton did with her emails.

Comey and McCabe, of course, will forever be remembered for their horribly botched investigation of the Clinton email case in 2015-2016. How can anyone forget that McCabe’s wife received $675,000 in campaign funds for her race for Virginia State Senate from groups closely associated with longtime Clinton confidant Terry McAuliffe as the email probe was being conducted by the FBI.

This week “Leakin” Andy McCabe has been giving interviews to his allies in the media to promote his book, “The Threat: How the FBI Protects America in the Age of Terror and Trump.” Like Comey’s book before it, it’s destined for the fictional ash heap of history.

Fox News: David Bossie: Mueller should end his probe and make his report public – Trump didn't collude with Russia

All signs indicate that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is on the verge of wrapping up his investigation and will conclude that the Trump campaign did not collude with Russia to win the 2016 presidential election.

President Trump’s former attorney John Dowd, a highly respected Washington lawyer, put an exclamation point on those feelings when he told ABC News this week: “If I was supervising Mueller, (I would) tell him to knock it off, get it done.”

After a 21-month investigation that has caused the Trump-hating media and political left to foam at the mouth in unison, tens of millions of hardworking American taxpayers are ready to move on and finally turn the page on the 2016 election. It’s time for everyone to digest the special counsel’s results and start to heal as a country.

If Mueller decides to send a final report to incoming Attorney General William Barr, that report should be released in full so the American people and Congress can see exactly what his long and expensive investigation found, did not find, and how it was conducted. After almost two years of secrecy, it’s time for some transparency.

Fox News: Bossie: Trump told Dems in State of the Union speech he wants to work with them – I'm optimistic it will happen

On Inauguration Day on Jan. 20, 1993, outgoing Republican President George H.W. Bush left a handwritten note for the new president of the United States, Democrat Bill Clinton. Just two months earlier, President Bush lost his bid for re-election to Clinton after a bruising campaign.

It was a tough pill to swallow, for certain. But President Bush knew he had to do what was right for America. In his note to the man who defeated him, Bush explained that even though they were rivals from different political parties, “your success now is our country's success. I am rooting hard for you.”

Now 26 years later, even though our country has become bitterly divided and President Bush is sadly no longer with us, his words are a reminder to us all of the need to put the best interests of our country above party politics.

Fox News: Dishonest Democrats won’t work with Trump on immigration because they’re scared to death of radical leftists

The left celebrated the reopening of the federal government last week as a “win” for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. With no legislative agenda for the American people to speak of, the liberal media are now forced to create fake victories for the Democrats. But to President Trump and tens of millions of hardworking American taxpayers, allowing our border crisis to continue is no victory.

Speaker Pelosi’s message to fellow Democrats that “unity is our power” speaks volumes to what the left cares about most. Sadly, the government shutdown demonstrated that congressional Democrats are unified by their hatred of President Trump and gaining power above all else. To date, the security of the American people has been nowhere to be found on their list of concerns.

Destroying the Trump presidency by any means necessary appears to be Pelosi’s only goal, and the anti-Trump media are a co-conspirator in this disgraceful effort. Pelosi refuses to listen to the American people – which would mean compromising on an immigration fix – because she’s scared to death that the radical leftists in her party will remove her from power. This is not leadership. And it’s certainly nothing to celebrate.

Shamefully, the liberal media provide cover for Pelosi, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. and fellow Democrats by ignoring President Trump’s repeated attempts at compromise on the divisive issue of illegal immigration, which is the mark of a true leader. President Trump is willing to take the heat from his base of supporters in order to find common ground to secure our border, and Speaker Pelosi is not. That’s a fact.

David Bossie: Covington, BuzzFeed and Trump -- Liberal hatred for this conservative change agent is unhealthy

The 2016 election of Donald J. Trump, the ultimate political outsider, has given rise to what the president has coined "Fake News."

Day in and day out President Trump is bombarded with negative press that has no basis in fact. Because of this, the president has stated that the Fake News legions are his biggest enemy. Indeed, the Fake News media is the enemy of the truth and this past weekend the American people saw two more ugly examples of how they operate.

First, there was the false story from BuzzFeed that President Trump instructed his former lawyer Michael Cohen to lie to Congress. The publication of this dishonest story set into motion a dangerous and irresponsible Fake News echo chamber. Unbelievably, one report found that MSNBC and CNN mentioned impeachment a whopping 179 times before BuzzFeed was called out for their false report.

The BuzzFeed fallacy was so horrible that Robert Mueller's office felt compelled for the first time to make a public statement saying that a report was untrue. The Special Counsel's office was essentially telling the Fake News legions that they needed a time out, like a 3-year old toddler. Unfortunately, the punishment won't work because the Fake News -- like so many unhinged liberals in Congress -- hate President Trump more than they love their country.

David Bossie: By blocking Trump’s State of the Union, Pelosi acts like leader of radical resistance movement

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s decision to play politics with the State of the Union address by barring President Trump from delivering the speech in the House chamber Tuesday is shameful. The House of Representatives is not Nancy Pelosi’s house – it is the People’s House.

Pelosi, D-Calif., must come to her senses and remember that she’s a constitutional officer of the American government – not the leader of an unhinged radical resistance movement.

In the midst of the uncertainty created by the longest partial government shutdown in our nation’s history, it’s critically important that the American people hear from their president in the traditional setting.

I agree wholeheartedly with President Trump that he should deliver his 2019 State of the Union address from the well of the House chamber, where presidents have delivered the speech since 1913.

Fox News: Bossie: If Democrats oppose Barr, they'll oppose anyone Trump nominates -- He deserves bipartisan support

After Tuesday’s masterful performance before the Senate Judiciary Committee, if Senate Democrats still decide to oppose William Barr to be our next Attorney General, it means one thing.  It means that they will oppose anyone President Trump nominates because they hate this president more than they love our country.

Here’s the truth. By any measurement, President Trump made an outstanding decision in nominating William Barr to be our nation’s next Attorney General. At Tuesday’s hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Barr proved himself to be an extraordinarily qualified nominee and someone who deserves robust bipartisan support in the U.S. Senate.

As a former attorney general during the administration of President George H.W. Bush, Barr is a well-respected senior statesman and patriot who could have easily chosen retirement and leisure but instead chose duty and country during a trying time in America. Barr repeatedly made it clear that he will be not be swayed by politics in his decision making but instead guided by the rule of law and Justice Department policies and procedures.

Quite predictably, Senate Democrats are attempting to make hay out of a memorandum Barr wrote last year speculating about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s possible pursuit of obstruction of justice charges against President Trump. Barr argued that President Trump cannot be prosecuted for obstruction of justice because it’s within the president’s constitutional authority to hire and fire whom he pleases in the Executive Branch of government, including the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Fox News: David Bossie: Trump's speech vs Schumer and Pelosi – Will America choose determination or denial?

The American people chose Donald Trump – the ultimate political outsider – to be their president in 2016 and solve problems affecting hardworking taxpayers. They understood that the out-of-touch political elites were no longer listening to them or addressing the issues they care about most. One of those issues is our nation’s ongoing illegal immigration crisis.

For more than 20 years, Washington politicians on both sides of the aisle – like former House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis.; current House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.; and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. – never seriously made dealing with illegal immigration a priority. They talked about the problem, but never solved it.

In contrast, President Trump is now doing everything in his power to secure the border and end the partial government shutdown. He worked over Christmas while Nancy Pelosi vacationed in Hawaii. He is planning a trip to the border on Thursday to hear more from Border Patrol officers on the ground. And he addressed the nation Tuesday to make his excellent case to the American people.

The president made clear in his address to the nation from the Oval Office that he is determined to confront this crisis at the border now by offering noble, commonsense solutions that the professionals on the border are asking for.

Fox News: David Bossie: Nancy Pelosi takes the gavel in the House and what's her first target? Free speech

On Thursday, the 116th Congress began and San Francisco’s Nancy Pelosi became Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives once again.  Hopefully, she won’t revert to her old tricks by passing bills so the rest of us can find out what’s in them.

As the president of Citizens United, I know that every two years around this time the left ramps up its wrongheaded quest to gut the First Amendment and attack the landmark “Citizens United” Supreme Court decision that protects robust free speech rights for all of the American people. And this year is no exception, as House Democrats prepare to unveil H.R. 1 today.

A recent column in The New York Times entitled “After Citizens United, a Vicious Cycle of Corruption,” opens by stating, “In the eight years since it was decided, Citizens United has unleashed a wave of campaign spending that by any reasonable standard is extraordinarily corrupt.” An intriguing opening perhaps, but the entire opinion piece contains no evidence of corruption whatsoever. Liberals just can’t come to grips with the fact that spending a lot of money to participate in the political process doesn’t equal corruption.

Fox News: David Bossie: Hey, Mitt Romney -- Washington needs problem solvers, not headline grabbers

Mitt Romney is just like Hillary Clinton.  Six years later, he’s still upset that he’s not president.  So, instead of coming to Washington as a problem solver like he campaigned, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney chose to start his tenure as Utah’s junior United States Senator as part of the problem.

In the midst of a government shutdown over securing our border, Romney chose to side with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi by attacking President Donald Trump in an op-ed in The Washington Post instead of offering his opinion about how to solve our illegal immigration crisis and end the shutdown. Oh Mitt, why am I not surprised? This behavior is extremely disappointing coming from someone who was the Republican nominee for President in 2012. Romney should be helping President Trump, not trying out for CNN’s next anti-Trump Republican talking head.

First of all, why did Senator Romney choose the Washington Post for his op-ed? Why not choose a paper in Utah, the state that he represents? It’s because Romney is a swamp creature more concerned about raising his own national profile than representing the people of Utah.
