NATIONAL REVIEW — Special Counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly calling for more manpower to assist him with the probe of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Bloomberg reported Thursday that Mueller is asking veteran prosecutors from the Justice Department and U.S. attorneys's offices, as well as FBI agents, for help with new legal battles that have cropped up as a result of his investigation. Though he is not adding to his team of 17 federal prosecutors, he has called on investigators in New York, Alexandria, Va., Pittsburgh, and other cities to help him.... (more)

SELWYN DUKE — There perhaps has never been a time when the Democrats did a better job of snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. After being well ahead in the generic congressional polls, those numbers collapsed early this year along with the Trump/Russia/Collusion narrative. Since then, leftists have been flailing around desperately searching for an issue.... (more)

THE HILL — From the perspective of some House Democrats, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) has the right message. She's just not always the best messenger. The Los Angeles lawmaker's early calls for President Trump's impeachment and viral showdowns with administration officials have endeared Waters to the party's young, liberal base. And those stances have also garnered the respect of many House Democrats, who admire how Waters, 79, sticks to her political convictions.... (more)

WES VERNON — "Somebody's going to be hurt or killed," warn the pundits regarding the vile insults and threats coming from the far left these days. Now we're seeing an apparent eager anticipation of just that outcome: Writing an op-ed posted by "a leftist website indirectly owned by Univision" named Splinter News, Hamilton Nolan predicts terror ahead....

ALAN KEYES — Ronald Reagan appointed Justice Anthony Kennedy to the U.S. Supreme Court on Sept. 11, 1987. In his nominating speech, President Reagan described the U.S. Circuit Judge Kennedy as "a true conservative – one who believes that our constitutional system is one of enumerated power – that it is we, the people, who have granted certain rights to the government, not the other way around.... Those three words, 'We the People,' are an all important reminder of the only legitimate source of the government's authority over its citizens...."... (more)

BRYAN FISCHER — To the joy of authentic conservatives all across America, Anthony Kennedy this week announced his retirement from the United States Supreme Court. As if signaling his upcoming departure, Kennedy joined the conservative majority in a flurry of very important opinions published toward the very end of his last term -- opinions that protected First Amendment protections for crisis pregnancy clinics, Christian wedding vendors, and non-union members, and upheld the president's authority to restrict immigration in order to protect national security....

ROBERT KNIGHT — Remember when President Trump said we were going to win so much that we are going to get tired of it? That's exactly how it felt this past month. But I'm not tired. Far from it. The Supreme Court has been delivering, big time, on Mr. Trump's promise to restore the rule of law. And the left is showing America its profoundly un-American and uncivil face every single day. On June 4, the Court upheld the right of Christian baker Jack Phillips in Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission not to be forced to help facilitate a same-sex "wedding."...

NEWSMAX — Rod Rosenstein's testimony before Congress this week has been analyzed and spun by pundits on all sides, each interpreting the testimony in a way that fits their preferred narrative of the Mueller investigation. However, to any current or former military officer or law enforcement executive, the most striking takeaway from this testimony is how Rod Rosenstein thoroughly demonstrated his abject lack of leadership and fundamental misunderstanding of the responsibilities of command....

NERWSMAX — Mitt Romney said it is too early to say whether he would vote to re-elect President Donald Trump in 2020. "It's too early to say who I will support," said the former GOP presidential candidate, who is now running for a Senate seat from Utah.... (more)

WASHINGTON EXAMINER — Michael Brendan Dougherty has some advice for President Trump that I think is worth repeating, in regards to replacing Justice Anthony Kennedy this fall: Appoint Amy Coney Barrett, Trump's recent addition to the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals. The facts of Barrett's life -- that she is a mother of seven children, and that when she speaks about her Catholic faith, she speaks about God as if she really believes in His existence -- will provoke nasty and bigoted statements from Democratic senators and liberal media personalities. Again.... It won't just be her faith.... (more)

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY — 'You're the boss." That was Representative Jim Jordan's terse rejoinder during a feisty exchange with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein at the House Judiciary Committee's oversight hearing on Thursday.

Kennedy's soon-to-be-vacant Supreme Court seat, and two leading candidates are veteran Washington, D.C., appellate Judge Brett Kavanaugh and Judge Amy Coney Barrett, a former Notre Dame law professor and recent Trump appointee to the 7th Circuit in Chicago....

SLATE — It's no secret that Justice Anthony Kennedy, who announced his imminent retirement on Wednesday, always had an eye toward his legacy. During this 30-year tenure on the Supreme Court, Kennedy often wrote grandiose opinions that seemed designed to be quoted and admired by future generations. That line of thinking was particularly evident in a series of decisions protecting gay Americans' right to equal dignity. Yet by choosing to retire under President Donald Trump, Kennedy imperils that legacy, throwing his most celebrated and far-reaching decisions into serious jeopardy.... (more)

According to NBC sources, North Korea may be upping its production of weapons-grade nuclear material at secret sites, and its leader, Kim Jong Un, will keep both the production and the location of those sites under wraps while seeking concessions from the U.S....
