4:05 PM ET – Sara Carter, Fox News Contributor and Investigative Reporter and David Schoen, Civil Liberties Attorney, discuss what’s happening with the IG report and the truth we were promised by the DOJ when Rosenstein said he would release the documents to the House Intel Committee. And finally what the hell happened with Stefan Halper and what was the goal?

Clovis’s theory is that Halper was trying to link Papadopoulos and the 30,000-plus emails that Hillary Clinton unilaterally deleted from her private email system. Halper was hoping “that somebody would bite in the campaign … his goal was to drag George into this to say the Trump campaign tried to get access to those emails from Russia.”

If that is what Halper was trying to do — and again, that is simply Clovis’ theory — then it didn’t work. “Nobody was biting,” Clovis told me. “As far as I know, no one in the campaign lifted a finger to get to the 30,000 emails. I don’t think it was in their interest. Anytime anybody approached me about oppo, I deleted it. Oppo research against Hillary Clinton? We had plenty of material. It’s not like it’s not a target-rich environment.”

One obvious question from all of that is how investigators, in their questioning of key witnesses, handled Halper’s role in the affair. Did they mention the FBI informant? Did the intelligence committees even know Halper was an FBI informant?

Clovis told me that in all 19 hours of questioning, no one — not Mueller’s investigators, not investigators from the House or Senate, not anyone — ever mentioned Halper. (Clovis said that, among other documents, he gave all the investigators all emails making any reference to Carter Page, so he believes he turned the Halper email over.) At the time he was questioned, of course, Clovis did not know Halper was an FBI informant.

As for Page, he told me in an email exchange that he turned over “tons of personal documents that included many records of all my meetings.” When I asked whether investigators had information about his dealings with Halper specifically, Page said, “They explicitly had documentation that allowed them to know that information of which you’re inquiring.” (H/T Washington Examiner)

4:30 PM ET – Luke Rosiak, an Investigative Reporter for the Daily Caller, has been the leading voice on the Awan Brothers scandal. One that most people do not realize is much more sinister and real than any Trump Russia Collusion. If the American people and the complicit members of the Democrat party had been willing to acknowledge the truth about Wasserman Schultz and these thieves, the Awans, we might not be up against this deadline of June 7th.

DEM IT AIDE IN COURT JUNE 7 – STILL NO HACKING CHARGES DESPITE IG REPORT ON ALLEGED ELECTION BREACH

*The case of Imran Awan shows that Democrats’ effort to rig the 2016 election with a fake Russia narrative were more extreme and more dangerous than we ever knew

*It’s bad enough to use Crowdstrike and Fusion GPS to frame the president for his non-existent involvement in the hacking of a fundraising group, the DNC, but what happened here was so much worse: They knowingly allowed government servers to be hacked by Pakistanis, sacrificing national security in order to win an election.

*On the exact day in July 2016 when Wikileaks published the first DNC emails, the House inspector general found that a similar group, the House Democratic Caucus had been hacked… by Pakistanis who the Democrats hired and exempted from background checks.

5:05 PM ET – Ron Christie, Former Special Assistant to President Bush and columnist for Sidewire, Chris Hahn, Host of the Chris Hahn Show, and Ellen Karis, female comedian, are here to debate the news from Roseanne Barr to the misattribution of the photo that went viral over the weekend of illegal immigrants in cages. How quickly the left wing media went silent when they realized they were to blame. The news coverage of the photo stopped once it was confirmed that the photos of kids in cages happened on Obama’s watch.

A former Obama administration official, liberal activists, and journalists incorrectly shared pictures of children sleeping in enclosed cages from 2014 to take a swipe at the Trump administration and its zero-tolerance policy towards parents and children crossing the border illegally.

It turns out the photographs were published by The Arizona Republic in 2014 after the authorities detained over 1,000 children who crossed the U.S.-Mexico border illegally and placed them in a detention facility. The Daily Caller first reported on the error.

Former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau tweeted one of the pictures showing kids in one of the enclosures, criticized the government for neglecting the children.

“This is happening right now, and the only debate that matters is how we force our government to get these kids back to their families as fast as humanly possible,” Favreau reportedly said before deleting the tweet.
