Bannon: ‘Why are McConnell, Ryan letting DEMS investigate TRUMP?’

(National SentinelSwamp: Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon believes that Republican leaders in Congress are helping Democrats nullify President Donald J. Trump’s victory by allowing what he believes are politically motivated investigations against him to continue.

“The nullification of this election, I don’t think is coming from the Left,” Bannon told Charlie Rose in an interview that was released in full Tuesday night.

Portions of the interview aired on “60 Minutes” on Sunday, which included Bannon saying he does not think that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconson want the president’s “populist, economic nationalist agenda to be implemented.”

In the full interview, Bannon said, “Not only do you have a special prosecutor and the Justice Department and a couple of grand juries. You have on Capitol Hill … with Republican leadership, you have three separate committees.

“You have, I think, two in the Senate and one in the House,” Bannon said in reference to the Senate Judiciary and Intelligence Committees and the House Intelligence Committee. “And they are investigating him and sending out subpoenas, and they’ve had some big breaks already.”

As noted by The Daily Caller:

The House Intelligence Committee has received a cache of documents from the Trump Organization, the Senate Judiciary Committee has questioned Donald Trump Jr, and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort has testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

“Principally the Republican leadership has allowed three committees to go and principally be run by Democrats,” Bannon said.

“I think [California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff] is running the House committee … looks like [Democratic Virginia Sen. Mark Warner] is running the Senate committee and not [Republican North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr].”

More DEMS hit with sexual assault charges as the “Party of Women” continues to reveal its rank hypocrisy

analysis

By J. D. Heyes, editor-in-chief

(National SentinelScandal Analysis: Quite frankly, I don’t know how anyone — especially women — can remain Democrats after the string of grotesque sexual assault allegations we’ve seen over the past month.

What began with blockbuster details about allegations of serial sexual assault and misconduct against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein that stretches back decades has turned into a cascade of allegations against Democratic political figures and many media and entertainment figures who support them and claim to be such “champions of women.”

The latest is Democratic Rep. John Conyers of Michigan, whom, according to Buzzfeed News, “settled a wrongful dismissal complaint in 2015 with a former employee who alleged she was fired because she would not ‘succumb to [his] sexual advances.’”

The Conyers case is particularly harmful to his party because he’s not just the longest-serving member of Congress, he’s also an iconic civil rights figure who, obviously, is not a defender of a woman’s right not to be sexually harassed in the workplace (or anywhere else for that matter).

The news site noted that, according to four signed affidavits — three of which are notarized — from former Conyers staffers allege that the Michigan Democrat, the ranking member “on the powerful House Judiciary Committee, repeatedly made sexual advances to female staff that included requests for sex acts, contacting and transporting other women with whom they believed Conyers was having affairs, caressing their hands sexually, and rubbing their legs and backs in public.”

For his part, Conyers said in a statement issued hours after the Buzzfeed story was published that he indeed made the settlement, but he vehemently denied the sexual harassment charges — which he gets to do because, legally, he didn’t admit to any. (Related: Harvey Weinstein revelations prove Hollywood is a left-wing cesspool of perverts, pedophiles and rapists.)

But of course, there’s that settlement thing; innocent people don’t have to “settle” such cases.

Also, what’s worse is what the Conyers case reveals: A secret settlement arrangement that is also a pretty well-used tactic aimed at not only keeping such complaints out of the public’s eye but also as a way to ensure those female victims remain quiet.

“I was basically blackballed,” one victim told Buzzfeed. “There was nowhere I could go.

“It is a designed cover-up,” Matthew Peterson, who worked as a law clerk representing the complainant said of the reporting process. “You feel like they were betrayed by their government just for coming forward. It’s like being abused twice.”

Conyers’ accusations come amid others against longtime TV correspondent and personality Charlie Rose, who was fired by CBS News on Tuesday after the allegations were made public and he apologized (lamely) for them.

“A short time ago we terminated Charlie Rose’s employment with CBS News, effective immediately,” said a statement posted to Twitter from CBS News President David Rhodes. “This followed the revelation yesterday of extremely disturbing and intolerable behavior said to have revolved around his PBS program.”

In addition, PBS — with whom Rose also worked — sacked their relationship.

“In light of yesterday’s revelations, PBS has terminated its relationship with Charlie Rose and canceled distribution of his programs. PBS expects all the producers we work with to provide a workplace where people feel safe and are treated with dignity and respect,” the public broadcaster said.

Claims of sexual harassment against Rose, first reported by The Washington Post, are just the latest against Democratic supporters, politicians and entertainment figures. Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., has been accused of groping women and forcefully kissing another against her will.

Maybe the problem isn’t just Democrats. After all, some Republicans (including our president) stand accused of sexual harassment, even of minors.

Maybe the problem is that we’ve vested way too much power in too many of the same people for far too long.

We can’t do much about the lecherous treatment engaged in by the Weinstein’s of the world but we sure can do something about long-serving hypocritical congressmen: We can vote someone else into their seat.

Bannon: Trump not fooled by Russians, knows they’re ‘not good guys’

(National SentinelForeign Policy: Former chief White House Strategist Steve Bannon told “60 Minutes” host Charlie Rose Sunday night that President Donald J. Trump hasn’t been duped by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“He criticizes the Russians all the time. He knows the Russians are not good guys,” Bannon, now back with Breitbart News, told Rose.

He added that Trump would rather spend money fixing problems in America than pick fights abroad, especially costly fights with nuclear-armed enemies.

That said, Bannon added: “We should be focused on how we bring the Cold War to an end. I think it was President Obama’s program, $1 trillion to upgrade the nuclear arsenal. Is that what you want to do? Is that where you want to spend your money? Would you rather spend $1 trillion in Cleveland, in Baltimore, in the inner cities of this country where we need to spend it, in the heartland of this nation? And I think what he’s trying to say, in a world of anarchy, do you need another enemy?”

He said the suggestion by the legacy media and others that Trump should “criticize” Russian “stuns” him.

“What his point is, why pick another fight? We’ve got enough problems around the world,” he said.

Rose asked Bannon about the alleged Team Trump-Russia collusion, which he dismissed as “a complete and total farce.”

Asked about any intelligence he might have seen suggesting Russia interfered in the U.S. election, Bannon said he couldn’t discuss classified information. But, he noted, “I think it’s far from conclusive that the Russians had any impact on this election.”
