How Quickly Ye Forget…

Many people are understandably tentative about the Department of Justice Office of Inspector General Michael Horowitz.  How can this IG, or any IG, really be trusted to root out the rot that lies at the heart of the DC corruption?

Can we trust the IG to target the politicization of the FBI and DOJ, and do so with the righteous indignation necessary to tear out the corruptocrats? After all, what would motivate Inspector General Horowitz to participate in such a righteous endeavor?

How quickly some have forgotten:  DATELINE July, 2015:

WASHINGTON DC – The Obama administration formally announced that inspectors general will have to get permission from their agency heads to gain access to grand jury, wiretap and fair credit information — an action that severely limits the watchdogs’ oversight capabilities, independence and power to uncover fraud.

An opinion, issued by the Department of Justice’s Office of Legal Counsel, says the Inspector General Act of 1978 — which was written by Congress to create the government watchdogs in order to help maintain integrity within their agencies — does not have the authority to override nondisclosure provisions in other laws, most notably in regard to grand jury, wiretap or fair credit information.

“In reaching these conclusions, our Office’s role has not been to decide what access [inspectors general] should receive as a matter of policy. Rather, we have endeavored to determine as a matter of law, using established tools of statutory construction, how best to reconcile the strong privacy protections … with the interest in access reflected in … the IG Act,” states the legal counsel’s opinion, which was dated Monday and released Thursday.

“I strongly disagree with the OLC opinion,” Michael Horowitz, the Justice Department’s inspector general, said in a statement.Congress meant what it said when it authorized Inspectors General to independently access ‘all’ documents necessary to conduct effective oversight. Without such access, our Office’s ability to conduct its work will be significantly impaired, and it will be more difficult for us to detect and deter waste, fraud, and abuse, and to protect taxpayer dollars.”  (read more)

      Seb, the Congress obtained this power when and it must be taken from them. They are for legislature and paying bills, and nothing more. I want court trials with Trump appointed judges. Congress is wasting our money and their time and then conclude nothing is wrong. Now, that is wrong and any interrogation must be in a court of law! PERIOD!

    Somehow I get the feeling Trump would be bored if there wasn’t a deep state dog at his heels. This must be more fun than being a kid in Disneyland.

      I often think about how cutthroat the real estate business was at his level. He wasn’t just buying and selling buildings but erecting skyscrapers and buying and selling significant pieces of property, involving so many different people including politicians, attorneys, and more. I couldn’t have more faith in my President to handle this mess.

        Strewth, covfefe999! And on a global scale.

        President Trump was way more than, ‘just another NY real-estate guy.’

        COVFEE999, Yep, our President then had no choice but declare himself a democrat but when you research his past, he is a republican/populist and just what our America needs. He knows how to wheel and deal, he knows how to obfuscate what he is doing while misleading the fake MSM and Deep state and even Congress. Don’t worry, he will get what we want and it won’t be fun for those thinking they own us. NOT!

    I don’t trust IG Horowitz … at all. All he has suceeded in doing by releasing ethically incriminating communications is protect the direct plotters from legal consequences.

    Upthread had lots of questions on the OLC Opinion. For thos interested in reading more on the OLc, here’s theIe web page on the DoJ site explaining their function.

    Here’s a link to OLC’s Opinion referenced in SD’s article. It was published 7.20.2015.

    It limits some data OIG can obtain yet states yet authorizes OIG “to have access to all records, reports, audits, reviews, documents, papers, recommendations, or other material” available to the Department and relevant to the programs and operations OIG is charged with reviewing. 5 U.S.C. app. § 6(a)(1).

    OIG argues against any limitations of access.

    It’s long. Go at it.

      You said it in your first sentence, MC. It was an OPINION. not codified law. And not an EO or ED.

        WSB , and that means it is worthless and not to be held or accepted. Get committees out of Congress and get them in a court of law for interrogation under a Trump appointed judge. Time to end the farce that Congress needs committees wasting time, our money and no getting to do what they were hired to do: represent us and not their donor dollars, insider trader trading, nor thinking that we see them as the 2 parties in 1 and the majority are crooks. They are working outside their legitimate elected/hired representatives and that needs to stop.

    Thank you so much, Sundance! I had hope, but yes, I am one of those that was also a little skeptical considering. I am glad to read he’s definitely a white hat in search of truth, justice, and the American way! Thanks again for the information!

    Engage people with what they expect; it is what they are able to discern and confirms their projections. It settles them into predictable patterns of response, occupying their minds while you wait for the extraordinary moment — that which they cannot anticipate.


    If we wish to fight, the enemy can be forced to an engagement even though he be sheltered behind a high rampart and a deep ditch. All we need do is attack some other place that he will be obliged to relieve. If we do not wish to fight, we can prevent the enemy from engaging us even though the lines of our encampment be merely traced out on the ground. All we need do is to throw something odd and unaccountable in his way.

    It is being reported in several places now that the IG did not release to the public the texts of Strzok and Page. Really?
