New David Bossie op-ed: "Why Mulvaney matters as chief of staff: He's in Trump's corner"

We've often said President Donald Trump is one of the most instinctually gifted political minds ever to sit behind the Resolute Desk. He bulldozed his way into Washington as the ultimate outsider but, somehow, walked off the inaugural dais in 2017 with a level of insight that usually is reserved for seasoned political hands.

While the election of President Trump has been unquestionably great for our country, it ups the stakes for those who wish to serve as effective aides for a president who won his first political race entirely on his own ideas, guts and hard work. Presidential advisers come and go, as in any administration, and while this president listens to advice as successful leaders do, few aides "serving at the pleasure of the president" have made an impact that provides President Trump with a skillset that he does not already possess. Suffice to say, the bar for being an effective aide to a president of such natural political instinct is a tough one to reach.

Our friend Mick Mulvaney, however, has risen to the challenge to become one of the unsung heroes of the Trump administration. President Trump has a long-term strategic vision for the country not seen in decades, and in Mulvaney he's found an aide whose advice is worth listening to and who he can trust to execute his decisions. Mulvaney isn't a glorified body man who simply wants to orbit the president, nor does he think his job is to act as a "check" because of a grossly mistaken belief that a modern chief of staff drives the agenda. Mulvaney knows that he is the "chief of staff" but that the two words "of staff" are the bolded text — and he knows the importance of letting Trump be Trump.

Washington Examiner: DOJ inspector general found all four Carter Page FISA warrants were illegally obtained, Joe diGenova says

The memos obtained by Citizens United, and shared with the Washington Examiner, show Steele met with Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kathleen Kavalec on Oct. 11 and admitted he was encouraged by a client to get his research out before the 2016 election, signaling a possible political motivation. The timing of the meeting is notable, as it was 10 days before the FBI used Steele's unverified dossier to obtain the original warrant to wiretap Page.

Daily Caller: Here's Why John Kerry's Son Emailed The State Department About Hunter Biden In 2014

Former Secretary of State John Kerry’s son reportedly cut ties with Hunter Biden over the lawyer’s Ukrainian oil deal in 2014.

Christopher Heinz emailed two of his stepfather’s top aides at the State Department, Matt Summers and David Wade, after Biden joined the board of Ukraine’s Burisma Holdings in 2014, internal State Department correspondence the Washington Examiner obtained reveals.

Heinz’s email addressed both Biden and Devon Archer joining the board. Archer was Heinz’s college roommate and managing partner at the private equity firm Biden and Heinz co-owned, Rosemont Seneca Partners.

...

The Washington Examiner obtained the email through a public information request Citizens United filed.

“Why would Chris Heinz distance himself from Hunter Biden’s decision to join Burisma’s board in an email to John Kerry’s senior staff at the State Department?” Citizens United President David N. Bossie told the Examiner in a statement. “It’s time for Joe Biden to answer questions about his family’s business in the Ukraine and what his own role was in those dealings.”

Washington Examiner: John Kerry’s son cut business ties with Hunter Biden over Ukrainian oil deal

John Kerry’s stepson rushed to play damage control at the State Department after his business partner Hunter Biden cut a deal with an oligarch-owned Ukrainian gas company in 2014, according to internal State Department correspondence obtained by the Washington Examiner.

The email shows that Biden’s decision to join the board of Ukraine’s Burisma Holdings sparked immediate concern within his inner circle about the political optics. Biden’s father was then serving as vice president and overseeing the Obama administration’s Ukraine policy.

At the time, Biden and Christopher Heinz, the stepson of then-Secretary of State John Kerry, co-owned Rosemont Seneca Partners, a $2.4 billion private equity firm. Heinz’s college roommate, Devon Archer, was managing partner in the firm. In the spring of 2014, Biden and Archer joined the board of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian gas company that was at the center of a U.K. money laundering probe. Over the next year, Burisma reportedly paid Biden and Archer’s companies over $3 million.

Hours after Biden’s board appointment went public on May 13, 2014, Heinz emailed Matt Summers and David Wade, two of his stepfather’s top aides at the State Department.

“Apparently Devon and Hunter both joined the board of Burisma and a press release went out today,” wrote Heinz. “I cant speak why they decided to, but there was no investment by our firm in their company.”

Fox News: Trump boosts possible Lewandowski Senate bid ahead of New Hampshire rally

MANCHESTER, N.H. – President Trump has a message for New Hampshire Republicans ahead of his visit Thursday: "Corey's an outstanding guy. If he ran and won, he would be a great senator."

The Corey the president is referring to is Corey Lewandowski, who managed Trump's presidential campaign from its start in 2015 through the 2016 primaries and who remains a close outside adviser to the president. The New Hampshire resident and Washington, D.C., consultant and lobbyist generated buzz a couple of weeks ago when he said he was seriously considering a 2020 run for the U.S Senate in his home state.

...

"I would fully expect that the president would say he has no greater ally than Corey Lewandowski, because that is true, and that he would look forward to having Corey run for the Senate," said David Bossie, the longtime president and chairman of the conservative advocacy group Citizens United and a Fox News contributor.

Bossie, a close outsider adviser to the president who served as deputy campaign manager of Trump's 2016 White House bid, is also close with Lewandowski.

"Obviously an endorsement by the president, if he (Lewandowski) was to get in the race, would make him, in my opinion, unbeatable in the primary," he told Fox News.

Bossie released a poll on Tuesday indicating that Lewandowski would become the front-runner in the race – over the three other declared or likely Republican candidates – if he were to run – and that the president's support would only enhance his front-runner status. Trump – whose approval rating is underwater in the state – remains very popular with most Granite State Republicans. His approval rating stood at 82 percent among Republicans in a University of New Hampshire poll released this week.

WMUR 9: Lewandowski leads GOP US Senate field in poll conducted by Trump pollster

Survey of likely GOP Senate voters released by Lewandowski friend, ally, Bossie

MANCHESTER, N.H. — Former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski leads the 2020 Republican U.S. Senate field in a new poll conducted this week by one of the president’s top pollsters and released by a friend and ally of Lewandowski.

The poll of 400 likely Republican Senate primary voters was conducted by Trump campaign pollsters Tony Fabrizio, David Lee and Travis Tunis for David Bossie, the president of the Citizens United advocacy group who co-authored two books about Trump with Lewandowski.

It showed prospective candidate Lewandowski as the choice of 30 percent of those surveyed, with retired Brig. Gen. Donald Bolduc at 11 percent, former New Hampshire House Speaker Bill O’Brien at 10 percent and attorney Bryant “Corky” Messner at 1 percent, with 49 percent undecided. Bolduc and O'Brien are declared candidates for the seat held by Democratic incumbent Jeanne Shaheen, while Messner is exploring a run.

Politico: David Bossie prods Corey Lewandowski to run for Senate in New Hampshire

A top ally of former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski has released a new poll aimed at convincing him to run for Senate — and at swaying the president to endorse him.

The survey, which was commissioned by Lewandowski confidante and Citizens United President David Bossie, shows that the former Trump aide would become the Republican front-runner if he runs and that an endorsement from the president further boost his standing.

The poll comes as Trump is set to head to New Hampshire for a political rally on Thursday. There is widespread speculation in New Hampshire and Washington political circles about whether the president will use the rally to endorse or talk up Lewandowski, who is weighing jumping into the Republican primary to take on Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.).

The Hill: George Soros's secret 2016 access to State exposes 'big money' hypocrisy of Democrats

Liberal mega-donor George Soros made some big bets during the last U.S. presidential election. One was that Hillary Clinton would win the presidency. Another was that he could reshape Ukraine’s government to his liking, and that his business empire might find fertile ground in that former Soviet state.

So when Donald Trump’s improbable march to the White House picked up steam in the spring of 2016, Team Soros marched to the top of the State Department to protect some of those investments, according to newly released department memos providing a rare glimpse into the Democratic donor’s extraordinary access to the Obama administration.

Then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland received repeated calls, emails and meeting requests from Soros, according to the memos obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by the conservative group Citizens United.

The Hill: Chris Wray's FBI continues to cover for Team Comey's Russia shenanigans

The FBI is going to court to fight the public release of a small number of documents the State Department sent to agents from Christopher Steele, the British intelligence operative and Hillary Clinton-paid political muckraker, during the 2016 election. 

Normally, such Freedom of Information Act cases don't merit public attention. This one does.

To hear the FBI tell it, the release of former Deputy Assistant Secretary Kathleen Kavalec's documents is tantamount to giving up the keys to President Trump's nuclear briefcase, aiding the enemy or assisting terrorists.

"We know that terrorist organizations and other hostile or foreign intelligence groups have the capacity and ability to gather information from myriad sources, analyze it and deduce means and methods from disparate details to defeat the U.S. government's collection efforts," an FBI assistant section chief swore in an affidavit supporting the request to keep the documents secret.

The FBI can't afford to "jeopardize the fragile relationships that exist between the United States and certain foreign governments," the FBI official declared in another dramatic argument against the conservative group Citizens United's request to release the memos.
