Pompeo says he’s working to release Clinton’s State Department emails (Politico)

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday vowed to track down and release information regarding tens of thousands of emails former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sent and received over a private email server while in office, a day after President Donald Trump lambasted Pompeo for not having done so.

In an interview on Fox News, Pompeo laughed off Trump’s criticism from a day earlier, telling anchor Dana Perino that “we’ve got the emails, we’re getting them out.” He added: “We’ll get all of this information out so the American people can see it.” [Read More]

One Step Closer to Despotism? (American Greatness)

Donald Trump’s order on Twitter Tuesday night to declassify documents related to the FBI’s investigation of the 2016 Trump campaign suggests that he’s lost faith in Attorney General William Barr and John Durham, the prosecutor tapped to investigate the origins of Crossfire Hurricane.

Previously, the rationale for Barr’s failure to declassify Crossfire Hurricane documents en masse was that Durham needed to keep a close hold on them to build his case. But with less than a month to go before the 2020 election, the U.S. Attorney’s 18 month-long investigation has only secured one plea deal from an FBI lawyer. In the meantime, corrupt U.S. officials who spied on the Trump campaign and framed him as a Russian agent are basking in the sun.

More Voters Say They’re Better off under Trump than When Obama, Bush Sought Re-election: Gallup Poll (Newsweek)

More American voters believe they are better off after four years under President Donald Trump than they did at the end of the first terms of former presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush, new polling data has revealed.

The latest survey from Gallup found that a clear majority of registered voters (56 percent) believed they were better off now compared to four years ago.

But when they were asked whether they were better or worse off toward the end of Obama’s first term in the White House, only 45 percent told pollsters their situation had improved over the four years between 2008 and December 2012. [Read More]
