San Jose Comes Out Against ‘Defund Police’ Movement

The Grind

Opposition to the far-left’s attempt to defund police departments is starting to build across the U.S., including in areas of deep-blue California.

San Jose Democrat Mayor Sam Liccardo said on Sunday that he rejects calls to defund or abolish the police department because that will harm needed police reform and will hurt those most in need of help.

The Details

“We have much work to do to confront our long and terrible history of police brutality against black and brown Americans,” Liccardo said. “Defunding urban police departments won’t help us do it. It is the wrong idea at the worst possible time and the budget released tomorrow will reflect that.”

“Defunding police will hurt the very people who have suffered the most from systemic racism in this nation,” Liccardo continued. “Rich, white communities and businesses in suburban malls will just accelerate the hiring of private security guards.” Read more…

Justice is Coming: ‘As Many as 16-17’ Obamagate Criminal Referrals Headed to DOJ

As America reopens from coronavirus lockdowns and protests and riots engulf American cities, Attorney General William Barr is hard at work on Obamagate. According to award-winning journalist Adam Housley, “as many as 16-17” criminal referrals will be headed to the Department of Justice (DOJ) regarding the Obama administration’s spying on the Trump campaign in 2016.

“Criminal referrals have already been sent to the Justice Department and the overall number may reach as many as 16-17 by the end of next week. Investigators are working on additional ones as we speak and some are targeting the Mueller probe and how [retired Gen. Michael Flynn was] investigated,” Housley tweeted.

The Details

Housley explained that the criminal referrals are coming from Congress “and are much more detailed than any before.”

“This is coming from people with direct knowledge of the ongoing investigations. These same sources say this targets agency folks and McCabe may be one. What’s interesting is to see how this will differ, if at all, from what [U.S. Attorney John] Durham is doing,” Housley added.

On Saturday, The Washington Examiner reported that House Intelligence Committee Republicans were preparing to send Obamagate criminal referrals to the DOJ. Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) had sent eight referrals to Barr last spring, and he told Fox Business last week that House Republicans have enough evidence for “at least another five, possibly as many as 10” recommendations for prosecution as three U.S. attorneys review various aspects of the Russia investigation.
