I was hoping this race would be called tonight.
It doesn’t look like the final result will be reported until early tomorrow morning:
In the larger scheme of things, this result doesn’t matter much.
It isn’t going to cost Republicans the House of Representatives. The House map is also being redrawn because of a Pennsylvania State Supreme Court ruling. We’re only a few months out from the 2018 midterm elections. Still though, Donald Trump won this district by nearly 20 points over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election. He also stumped for Saccone:
The Economy is raging, at an all time high, and is set to get even better. Jobs and wages up. Vote for Rick Saccone and keep it going!

The Pittsburgh Post Gazette just endorsed Rick Saccone for Congress. He will be much better for steel and business. Very strong on experience and what our Country needs. Lamb will always vote for Pelosi and Dems….Will raise taxes, weak on Crime and Border.

The moral of the story: White working class populist voters who came out in droves to support Donald Trump have either stayed home or swung back to the Democrats.

CHAIRMAN NUNES: No Evidence of Trump-Russia Collusion But ‘Clear Links’ Between Hillary’s Campaign and Russians (VIDEO)
Chairman Nunes appeared on ‘Fox & Friends’ Tuesday morning to discuss the House Intel Committee’s report after announcing the panel found “no evidence of collusion, coordination or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians.”
Nunes also said there are clear links between Hillary’s campaign and the Russians.
Transcript via Fox News:
“We need to get our FBI and our intelligence agencies working on real problems and get them away from what they’re doing now, which is, it looks likes spinning in circles,” Nunes said. “We spent 14 months on this investigation, looking for collusion. We didn’t find any.”
Nunes accused Schiff and other Democrats of trying to rewrite history and engage in personal attacks because they have failed to find clear evidence of the Trump campaign colluding with Russians.
“They’ve said that numerous times, probably hundreds of times, nearly all of them. Yet they never produce their collusion to our committee. So we have interviewed all these folks. We can’t find any collusion. And that’s where we stand now,” Nunes said.
He added that they found “clear links” between the Hillary Clinton campaign and Russians, but no one seems to care about that.
“The more that you look at this, the more it is pretty obvious that you have one side that plays by one set of rules, and Republicans are held to a different set of standards,” Nunes said.
Chairman Nunes has fearlessly fought Democrat opposition since he rose to prominence in 2017.
Ranking member of the House Intel Committee Adam Schiff previously hit Nunes with a bogus ethics probe which lasted 8 months in an effort to slow the Chairman down.
The House Intel Committee and the Senate Judiciary Committee are still investigating Hillary’s phony dossier, the unmasking scandal and the FISA abuses committed by Obama’s DOJ and FBI.
LIVE UPDATES=> PA 18th Congressional District Special Election – Democrat Lamb leads Saccone 49.9% to 49.5%
The Pensylvania 18th District Special Election was held on Tuesday.
The contest puts pretend moderate Conor Lamb, who is running as a conservative, against conservative Republican Rick Saccone.
Saccone is an Air Force veteran.
President Trump campaigned for Saccone on Saturday in a rousing campaign speech.
Lamb is an energetic, young, attractive Democrat pretending to be conservative.
Saccone is a true conservative but lacks the charisma of the younger Democrat.
Democrats in Middle America ALWAYS run as moderates and then get to Washington and vote with Nancy Pelosi at least 80% of the time.

According to Michael Isikoff and David Corn’s new book “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump,” former British spy Christopher Steele and his business partner Christopher Burrows had a “heated exchange” over the dossier’s salacious allegations.
Daily Caller reports:
In his first memo for the dossier, dated June 20, 2016, Steele, a former MI6 officer, reported that a source inside Russia had received information that Trump took part in the tryst in 2013 while visiting Russia for the Miss Universe pageant. Steele’s source told him that the Russian government has used the video to blackmail Trump. […]
Steele’s business partner, Christopher Burrows, immediately questioned Steele’s report, according to the book.
“What the fuck!” Burrows said to Steele during what the authors describe as a heated exchange.
“Burrows feared Steele was sensationalizing his material,” the book reads, which reports that Burrows “later privately described the report as akin to preliminary intelligence reporting — information not analyzed, vetted, or ready for distribution.”
“This was not gospel. It was raw product,” Burrows would say.
Steele, who was tasked with compiling the ‘Trump dossier’ for opposition research firm Fusion GPS, has admitted in court that the discredited document contains “limited intelligence.”
Steele also admitted part of “his final December memo,” was unvetted.
“Such intelligence was not actively sought; it was merely received,” Steele added.
According to a recent WSJ report, the Obama Justice Department relied on information obtained by Steele, to spy on Trump campaign aide, Carter Page, during the final days of the 2016 presidential election.
Steele infamously compiled the discredited dossier detailing alleged sex acts performed by then-businessman Donald Trump inside a swanky Moscow hotel suite in 2013.
However, the veracity of the allegations didn’t stop Director of National Intelligence James Clapper from informing President Barack Obama of the “golden showers” claims during a Presidential Daily Briefing.
Mother Jones reports:
Near the time the spy chiefs briefed Trump on the intelligence community’s report on the Russian attack, Susan Rice, the national security adviser, encouraged Clapper during the daily intelligence briefing to tell Obama about the “golden showers” allegations. After Clapper did so, Obama turned to Rice and said, “Why am I hearing this?” The president was incredulous. He added, “What’s happening?” One participant in the meeting later said, “You don’t really expect to hear the term ‘golden showers’ in the President’s Daily Brief or that the guy who is going to become president may be a Manchurian candidate.”

Lawyer Suing Gateway Pundit, Alex Jones, Allen West Worked for Same Firm That Placed 4 Lawyers – Including Mueller – On Special Counsel
Now isn’t this interesting–
unhinged leftie hack and State Department employee Brennan Gilmore traveled to Charlottesville, Virginia on August 12, 2017 to counter protest a group of white supremacists defending a Confederate statue in the city.
Gilmore filmed Alex Fields Jr. drive his car into a group of counter protesters marching in the street.
Gilmore was then interviewed on several far left mainstream media outlets about the events in Charlottesville.
But Mr. Gilmore did not mention his work with the State Department, his far left activism or his extreme Trump hatred.
Here is Mr. Gilmore on the record at “Blue Virginia.”
The Gateway Pundit posted on Brennan Gilmore here.
The Gateway Pundit — along with Alex Jones, Allen West, Lee Stranahan, Infowars reporter LeeAnn McAdoo, Derrick Wilburn and others — are being sued by Mr. Gilmore.
Here is the court document.
As we reported earlier Gilmore’s court case is filled with inaccuracies, far left drivel and nonsense.
Brennan Gilmore’s attorney is Andrew Mandrala who is (was?) an attorney at the WilmerHale law firm.
At least four attorneys from WilmerHale are members of the Mueller Special Counsel — including Robert Mueller.
Aaron Zebley — a former partner at WilmerHale who has previously served with Mueller at the FBI and has served as an assistant U.S. attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia. — Worked with Robert Mueller at the WilmerHale firm.
James Quarles — a former partner at WilmerHale and a former assistant special prosecutor for the Watergate Special Prosecution Force.
Jeannie Rhee — A former partner at WilmerHale who has served in the Office of Legal Counsel at DOJ and as an assistant U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia. — Rhee is a Clinton Foundation Lawyer and former Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the Office of Legal Counsel under Barack Obama.
Maybe this is just a coincidence?
But it is a bit strange that the attorney filing charges against The Gateway Pundit, Alex Jones, Allen West, Lee Stranahan, etc. works for the same firm that has at least four attorneys working on the Mueller Special Counsel.
Gregg Jarrett: Jeff Sessions Is the “Most Feckless, Incompetent Attorney General in Modern US History” (VIDEO)
FOX News contributor and former attorney Gregg Jarrett joined Lou Dobbs to discuss the recent developments by Deep State operatives in their continual witch hunt to destroy Donald Trump and his family and former campaign officials.
Jarrett went off on failed Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Lou Dobbs: You know this Attorney General does not have the stomach for a fight. It’s just not going to happen…
Gregg Jarrett: Well, unfortunately and I’m sad to say this. Jeff Sessions as Attorney General is the most feckless and incompetent Attorney General we’ve had in modern American history. He’s incapable of doing the job.
As usual, Jarrett nailed it.

NTK Network reports:
Hillary Clinton said that white women voted for President Trump during the 2016 presidential election because their husbands told them to, during a discussion at the India Today Conclave on Saturday.
The moderator asked Clinton why she thinks almost 52 percent of white women voted for Trump, despite them knowing about the controversial “Access Hollywood” tape.
“[Democrats] do not do well with white men and we don’t do well with married, white women,” Clinton explained. “And part of that is an identification with the Republican Party, and a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should.”
“I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward and [Trump’s] whole campaign, ‘Make America Great Again,’ was looking backward,” Clinton continued.
Clinton then explained how she interpreted Trump’s pitch to voters and why she believes they ended up voting for him.
“You know, you didn’t like black people getting rights, you don’t like women, you know, getting jobs. You don’t want to see that Indian-American succeeding more than you are. Whatever your problem is, I’m going to solve it.”
On Tuesday, Patti Solis Doyle, Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign manager ripped Hillary for trashing Trump voters.
GOP War Room reports:
On HLN, longtime top aide to Hillary Clinton, Patti Solis Doyle, slams Hillary for trashing Middle America & implying states that voted for Trump were backwards. Clinton’s former campaign manager admitted she couldn’t “sugarcoat” how “wrong” Clinton’s comments were and blamed it on Clinton “still struggling” with her loss.
“It seems to me she’s still struggling with coming to terms on how she lost and why she lost, which, you know, is human and normal, particularly this level of loss. I do wish she would stop doing it so publicly,” the former aide told host S. E. Cupp.

Ex-CIA Director John Brennan Posts Ominous Warning to Republicans on House Intel Committee After They Rule No Trump-Russia Collusion
House Intelligence Committee Republicans announced Monday that they found “no evidence of collusion,” between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin in the panel’s ‘Russia probe.’
The Democrats and Deep State didn’t take the news well.
Early Tuesday morning, former CIA Director and prominent Twitter troll, John Brennan posted an ominous warning to the Republicans on the House Intel Panel from his Twitter account.
Brennan fired off an early morning tweet warning Republicans on the House Intel Panel will face November reckoning for concluding there was not collusion between Trump and the Russians during the 2016 election.
Brennan tweeted, “Leadership of House Intel Committee has traded last vestige of integrity for politics. With other investigative shoes yet to drop, legislators who try to protect @realDonaldTrump will face November reckoning. Hopefully, bipartisan effort in Senate Intel Committee will endure…”

Perhaps Brennan is nervous because he is under investigation by the House Intel Committee.
Chairman Devin Nunes is investigating John Brennan and other Obama officials for their role in promoting Hillary’s phony dossier.
According to investigative reporter, Paul Sperry, Chairman Nunes is also investigating whether Brennan perjured himself in a public testimony about the dossier.
Also according to Sperry, Brennan is aware Nunes is investigating him.
Other members of Obama’s echo chamber also came out swinging after the House Intel Committee’s announcement.
Leaker Adam Schiff immediately blew a gasket and released a ridiculous statement claiming the Republicans don’t care about the fact that the Russians may have leverage over Trump.
Former Attorney General Eric ‘Fast and Furious’ Holder was livid after the GOP House Intel panel shut down the Trump-Russia probe.
Holder called it a cover up. Rich coming from the only Attorney General in U.S. history to be held in criminal contempt of Congress.

Behar Responds to Pence’s Call to Publicly Address Remarks Disparaging Christians: ‘I Sincerely Apologize’
The leftist judge presiding over the prosecution of former Trump Campaign Manager Paul Manafort says the deposed businessman may spend the rest of his life in prison.
The Russian Collusion special counsel was always a lie.
There was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Democrats and Deep State operatives could not accept the will of the people in the 2016 election.
So now they are going to throw the former Trump campaign manager in prison for life after charging him with fraud for business dealings back in 2006 through 2015.
America is officially a banana republic.
And Jeff Sessions is hiding under his desk again.
The Daily Caller reported:
Judge Thomas Ellis III, who is presiding over the second prosecution of Paul Manafort, wrote in a new order that the deposed Trump campaign chief may well spend the rest of his life in prison.
Ellis imposed restrictive bond conditions against Manafort in the new order, concluding the severity of his alleged crimes and his considerable assets incentivize him to flee the country.
“Defendant faces the very real possibility of spending the rest of his life in prison,” Ellis wrote. “In this regard, he poses a substantial risk of flight and the above-mentioned conditions are the least restrictive conditions that will reasonably assure defendant’s appearance at trial.”
Manafort faces federal prosecution in two jurisdictions. Special counsel Robert Mueller filed numerous charges against him including eighteen counts of tax fraud, bank fraud, and bank fraud conspiracy at a federal trial court in Alexandria, Va., and twelve counts of money laundering, conspiracy against the United States, and violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) at the federal trial court in Washington, D.C.
Each tax fraud charge carries a maximum sentence of five years and a $250,000 fine. The bank fraud charges carry a 30 year maximum sentence and a one million dollar fine. Though he is not likely to receive the maximum penalties, at 68, Manafort faces the serious prospect of life in prison, even with a reduced sentence.

Victoria Nuland, a senior State Department official under Barack Obama, started the Christopher Steele-FBI alliance according to a new book titled ‘Russian Roulette.’
Victoria Nuland was Obama’s former Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian affairs for the State Department.
The Washington Times reported:
A senior Barack Obama State Department official gave the green light to an FBI agent in 2016 to meet with dossier writer Christopher Steele, a meeting that touched off a relationship that would fuel the ongoing investigation into possible Donald Trump-Russia election collusion.
The disclosure that Victoria Nuland started the process is contained in “Russian Roulette,” a book released Tuesday by Yahoo News report Michael Isikoff and Mother Jones magazine’s David Corn.[…]
Mr. Steele, who was excited over his findings about Mr. Trump supposed dalliance with Russian prostitutes and purported collusion with the Kremlin, pressed his handler, Glenn Simpson, of Fusion GPS, to let him go to the FBI.
Mr. Simpson agreed. Mr. Steele telephoned Michael Gaeta, an FBI agent with whom he worked on soccer corruption who was then stationed at the U.S. Embassy in Rome.“I can’t discuss it over the phone. You have to come here. Believe me, Mike, you have to come to London,” Mr. Steeletold him.
Says “Russian Roulette,” “There were a few hoops Gaeta had to jump through. He was assigned to the U.S. embassy in Rome. The FBI checked with Victoria Nuland’s office at the State Department: Do you support this meeting? Nuland, having found Steele’s reports on Ukraine to have been generally credible, gave the green light.”
“Within a few days, on July 5, Gaeta arrived and headed to Steele’s office near Victoria station. Steele handed him a copy of the report. Gaeta, a seasoned FBI agent, started to read. He turned white. For a while, Gaeta said nothing. Then he remarked, ‘I have to report this to headquarters.’”
The book “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and Donald Trump’s Election” is written by Yahoo! News’ Michael Isikoff and David Corn of Mother Jones. Both reporters met with Christopher Steele during the election.
Michael Isikoff wrote the Yahoo! News article about Carter Page in September of 2016 which was used as means to corroborate Christopher Steele’s claims Trump’s camp had secret connections to the Kremlin.
David Corn wrote an article about the dossier in Mother Jones in October of 2016 right before the election. He hinted at the dossier and claimed a former spy compiled a series of memos of Trump’s connections to Russia yet never reported on the salacious claims nor did he name Christopher Steele.
Both the House Intel Committee and the Senate Judiciary Committee are investigating how Obama officials promoted the Hillary-funded dossier.
Chairman Nunes just began phase 2 of the House Intel Committee’s investigation into the dossier which includes probing Obama’s State Department officials.
Former Secretary of State John Kerry is officially under investigation according to a new report by investigative journalist Sara Carter.
Republican investigators also have evidence dossier author Christopher Steele met with the FBI on July 5th 2016 which is the EXACT SAME DAY former FBI Director James Comey exonerated Hillary Clinton according to a report by John Solomon.
The 35-page dossier was published in full by Buzzfeed News shortly before Trump’s inauguration.
