Swamp Tremors – IG Horowitz Explains How FBI Agent Strzok and FBI Attorney Page Appeared on Investigative Radar….

Well, now we know.  Many people were curious about how Inspector General Michael Horowitz zeroed-in on the communication between FBI Counterintelligence Agent Peter Strzok and FBI Attorney Lisa Page.

IG Horowitz explains in a letter today (full pdf below) and interestingly provides additional insight into the years-long investigation.  Accepting, based on the past several weeks -and fully accepting there is a reason for the rapid response herein- Horowitz is prudently strategic with his communications, it would also be wise to read between the lines in his letter:

[Page #2] In connection with the OIG’s review of the actions of DOJ and the FBI in advance ofthe 2016 presidentialelection, has the OIG received any similar allegations involving other government officials?

“The OIG’s review is ongoing, and we currently are in the process of completing our witness interviews and document review. Thereafter, we intend to issue a public report with our findings on these and the other issues we are reviewing, and we would be pleased to discuss them with you at that time.”

      “When Comey was telling @POTUS the 2nd & 3rd time that he was not under investigation, Comey himself was under investigation by the IG! Did Trump know this?”

      An answer provided farther down in that tweet:
      “The IG probe of the DOJ/FBI was publicly announced on the DOJ’S website on Jan. 12th. So likely yes.”

        That does not follow.

        President Trump may know of an ongoing investigation, but that doesn’t mean he had any actual knowledge of who was being investigated.

        As he was newly inaugurated he could be sure it wasn’t him or any of his staff, but to find out more would have meant interfering in the investigation, and I don’t believe PDJT did that.

          So, are you equating having knowledge of what/who was being investigated in a Federal Agency under his authority is the same thing as interfering therein? No.

          The DOJ (FBI is under DOJ) is an agency directly under the authority of the Administrative Branch of USA, in which the chief administrator is the POTUS, who currently is PDJT.

          To Disallow the POTUS to know what is happening under his own authority as chief administrator would disallow him to do his job. Ie: of course he can know.

          He cannot stop a legal investigative process. It is part of his job to direct his sub-administrator (Secretary or Assistant Secretary) to find and stop any illegal investigative procedures. He cannot obstruct justice, but he sure has the Constitutional Authority and duty to obstruct any INJUSTICE found within the Administrative Branch.

          DOJ and/or FBI are not, as has been claimed, “independent.”

          We do not have Judicial, Legislative, Administrative and FBI branches.

          We have Judicial, Legislative, and Administrative Branches. Even they are not entirely “independent” as there are many “checks and balances” between them.

    Lou Dobbs started his show with Michael Mukasey. Mukasey was clearly unprepared, at least he admitted he didn’t see the hearings but he opined about the 10,000 texts and said he thought it was inappropriate that “private communications” were released. I guess he’s unaware that the adulterous libtards were using FBI phones, not personal phones. Next time Mukasey is on I’m going to change the channel.

          And PDJT has been watching the FBI and DOJ stonewall Congress since he was elected. He hasn’t done anything about it, and I suspect it is because it would have a lot of political blowback. The whole obstruction of justice charges whenever he talks to DOJ.

          I’m guessing that contempt letter will not single out any individuals, as DOJ/FBI has been using the “wall of bureaucracy” to stonewall. This would also make it hard for Trump to act.

          Also, it won’t tell him anything he doesn’t already know, and I can’t see him waiting to act because of the lack of a letter from Congress.

          But, I haven’t abandoned hope, I’m just squinting hard at this whole affair.

            Yes, PDJT has been observing the stonewalling of Congress and others like JW for FOIAs and it has been maddening. I can only assume he hasn’t acted because of the political blowback sure to come, as you say.

            If Congress doesn’t cite people individually for contempt, then I just don’t even know what to say. They may as well not bother.

            While a congressional contempt citation wouldn’t tell PDJT anything he doesn’t already know, it would provide him IMO a really good reason/political cover to ask for a resignation.

            Unless of course, he doesn’t actually want that person to resign because they are doing what he wants….whatever that may be.

            I do not have the patience for elaborate conspiracy theories. Nor can I sit for hours and patiently untangle the gold chains on my necklaces. Some skilz I got, some I don’t.

            I don’t expect much from Congress. They are for the most part hopelessly compromised and the hearings are a lot of sound and fury signifying not much and they cannot themselves indict anyone.

            One thing they can do is draw attention and attempt to help the lo fo’s form opinions. They must have made a mark somewhere, because now the Dims fight back!

            The Dims have just started now to blather about the texts and the IG investigation and how awful Rod Rosenstein is, so there will be PLENTY to squint at going forward!

              What does everybody expect Congress to do?

              They have oversight. They don’t have prosecutorial power. But they can oversee and bring it out to the people (they are supposed to represent.) That is what they ARE doing.

              They ARE sound and fury in an investigation under their purview, (supposedly representing the sound and fury of the people, and doing that through listening to the people, representing us there, and in turn informing the people of their/our progress and of the LAWs being broken, of unjust practices) but if our Constitutional System is working right, it DOES signify something.

              Their main job is to make laws. (Legislature) That is why a Congressional or Senate investigation usually ends with “we will make laws so this cannot happen in future.” MAKE LAWS IS WHAT THEY DO. Also they may make a strong recommendation to prosecute.

              THAT is their part, their job, their mandate, as per our Constitution. They don’t have teeth to enforce nor prosecute because that’s under the purview of the Administrative Branch.

              They are not SUPPOSED to have that kind of teeth. Don’t ever let them make a law to give themselves the powers of other branches! Much less start wishing they had them due to impatience: do you wish to break the Constitution or keep it?

              The Administration’s (POTUS’s) Department of Justice both enforces and prosecutes.
              Here lies the power to arrest and prosecute. The Congressional Investigation bringing all this extreme illegal bias to light (With GREAT SOUND AND FURY) makes it clear, the and SIGNIFIES (especially important right now, with the idiotic liberals who wish to impeach the POTUS if he does his job, on their claim that he is “obstructing justice”) that our Administration must act to stop the INJUSTICES. If our Admin is stopping INJUSTICES, they are not “obstructing justice” they are, in fact, “obstructing injustices.”
              THIS is the Congress’s part under the Constitution. (So Legislature’s Investigatory Power is not “sound and fury signifying nothing” because it signifies something: that the injustices must be stopped both for now-by Administration, and for later-by Legislature.)

              If taken to Supreme Court then the Judicial Branch oversees the trial and makes judgement according to laws made by Legislature, and their interpretations of the finer points of the laws.

              It is in the Constitution.

              My husband was getting his dander up tonight wanting something done, now! I know I feel the same. But I told him “I guess if we had a medieval king we could just behead these people and hang their heads on pikes. Unless the king favored them instead of us. Think about that, and be patient.”

                You make a really good point about expecting Congress to do something. In this case, they are basically doing their job. But they can’t control the outcome, that isn’t their job.

                I do wish PDJT would put his boot in the behind of Sessions, Rosenstein, Wray or whoever and tell them to turn over all the documents that Congress is wanting to see so they can do their job.

            It seems as though his Executive Branch is operating in defiance of him. But I recognize NONE of us knows what is really going on behind closed doors and all we can do is speculate.

            Regardless, PDJT is the only game in town and the best hope we have had in forty years and has done an awful lot so far despite having to fight every day to get anything accomplished at all.

It is not at all a new or rare doctrine—but Congress, if they wish to effect any respect for law and in fact for their own authority, has to enforce penalties against scofflaws like DOJ, FBI and certainly McCabe who is clearly concealing evidence. Otherwise they will continue to be the Barney Fife brigade.

Like him or not that was the exact meaning behind Judge Napolitano’s commentary on the matter. He is not a supporter of these people but he did expose the weakness of a legal case, that requires direct links. There is nothing directly linking e-mails to action. It is horrifying how brazen and secure these DoJ employees felt to text and e-mail these kind of messages. The Obama administration did a very good job clearing out direct links, especially to the top dogs. Hopefully people can be made to flip or some shred of evidence was missed when Obama’s people made their sweep to destroy files and evidence, maybe somebody kept a doomsday file for self protection. We’ll see as this unfolds, I hope something is found as evil people always seem to make major mistakes as is evident by the progress made by the IG to date.

Actions such as this not only cost taxpayers billions of dollars in receipt of nothing but once again stand in defiance of the people’s law.

    “While the report criticized officials in Washington, it said Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. had no advance knowledge of the tactics and risks involved in the operation until after it was stopped.”

    horwowitz is a puppet of the thug puppets – installed to DELAY and then produce nothing burger results – this is CLASSIC SWAMP DEFLECTION

    ENDLESS INVESTIGATIONS leading to some criticism of low level (possibly ficticious) operatives that NOBODY cares about – see “Reality Winner”

    while dribbling to the media just enough to keep people engaged in their dopey drama

    mark my word – his bogus “report” will NEVER implicate the real criminals – and we all know who they are….

    EVEN IF it did (see hell freezing over) the results would STILL HAVE TO BE PROSECUTED BY ROSENSTEIN (he of the utmost respect for his swamp pal mueller) or sessions (i won’t even get into him)

    NOT HAPPENING

    now none of us know where this is going – nobody does except the globalist psychopaths calling the shots – but there is simply no question that Donald Trump needs to FIRE THEM ALL NOW AND CLEAN HOUSE….that would be the ONLY way to fix this

    again – it’s the SWAMP INVESTIGATION itself and assaulting The President relentlessly with a ROGUE permanent shadow government and it’s ruthless attack dog swamp media operatives.

    THIS HAS TO END

    or not…pass the popcorn please

  26. “The extraordinary dedication these men and women bring to their new roles will greatly serve the American people,” Obama said in a statement when he announced Horowitz and four other administration posts. “I am grateful they have agreed to serve in this Administration and I look forward to working with them in the months and years to come.”

    all you know about this swamp muppet…

    President Trump has great timing and can see the players and field better than we ever can. We are very lucky to have him as our President. I will hold off judgment on everything and let history judge how he did or didn’t do.
