Important Interview: Gregg Jarrett Talks FBI/DOJ Current Corruption Status With Chris Farrell…

Judicial Watch Director of Investigations Chris Farrell appears on Lou Dobbs show to discuss President Trump’s Twitter response toward the FBI and Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe’s plan to retire.  Farrell outlines several things within this interview that CTH has been tracking on background.

.

First, there is a possibility the person Farrell describes at 02:50 might be John P. Carlin, the former head of the Justice Department’s National Security Division who left in October 2016, right after the controversial FISA warrant was issued.

John Carlin landed a job with law firm Morrison & Foerster leading their global risk and crisis management practice.

CNBC Video of John Carlin discussing President Trump and the Mueller investigation from mid-June 2017 is available HERE.

♦Second, while CTH understands the concern Farrell carries surrounding the final IG outcome, there’s no substantive reason to assign an intent of dilution toward his efforts, yet.

However, that said, the concern that Chris Farrell describes surrounding DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz explains why oversight Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte has requested production of  the IG investigative documentation from the OIG; which is due on/around Jan 15th, 2018.

Regardless of the structure within the finished report from Horowitz, Chairman Goodlatte appears positioning his committee investigators to review the evidence and likely launch a Special Prosecutor criminal probe based on the current investigative evidence; a reported 1.2 million pages of investigative documentation so far.

We shall soon find out.

      Carlin was mentioned here several weeks ago as being involved in this coup de’tat. He seemingly resigned out of the clear blue. I think he would have had to approve the FISA warrant submission or it would have had to pass through his hands. Chris Farrell would not name him but if i was paying close attention, which I was not, I thought I heard him say that the person was very corrupted in the FISA/dossier fraud.

      In any case, it appears many in the deep state had a hand in trying to take out a duly elected POTUS.

      As SD said, Farrell did not think too much of the IG investigation and was pretty skeptical about it leading to any one being charged. Time will tell. But I think that if this whole TREASONOUS COUP is swept under the rug, there will be hell to pay for Trump and the Pubs. in the 2018 midterms and in 2020 election. The base is not going to buy another Lois Learner pleading the fifth and retiring w/full tax payer benefits for the rest of her crooked life. For this reason, I KNOW Trump is not going to let this slide.

        PLEASE PEOPLE get it through your heads YOU DO NOT WANT a Special Prosecutor!!! For one thing they reported DIRECTLY TO CONGRESS,and for another they no longer exist! 😝

        WIKI — “United States Office of the Independent Counsel was an independent prosecutor — distinct from the Attorney General of the United States Department of Justice — that provided reports to the United States Congress under 28 U.S.C. § 595. The office was terminated in 1999 and replaced by the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Special Counsel.[…]”
        >>>>>>>

        No that we have that cleared up.
        SPECIAL COUNSEL is ALSO tied to CONGRESS:
        28 CFR Part 600 – GENERAL POWERS OF SPECIAL COUNSEL

        Within that go to:
        § 600.9 Notification and reports by the Attorney General.
        “(a) The Attorney General will notify the Chairman and Ranking Minority Member of the Judiciary Committees of each House of Congress, with an explanation for each action – “
        >>>>>>>>>>>>

        What all of you are DEMANDING is a DOJ investigation and prosecution. THESE ARE NECESSARILY SECRET! Therefore you have zero idea of what AG Session is or is not doing or what investigations are now underway unless he allows public information out.

        For example:
        AG Sessions has ordered the DOJ to take another look at the FBI agents involved in Uranium One:
        https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/prosecutors-ask-fbi-agents-info-uranium-one-deal-n831436?cid=sm_npd_nn_tw_ma
        On the orders of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Justice Department prosecutors have begun asking FBI agents to explain the evidence they found in a now dormant criminal investigation into a controversial uranium deal that critics have linked to Bill and Hillary Clinton, multiple law enforcement officials told NBC News.[…]”

              You are correct that Mr. Recusal needs to do his job, which is to enforce the laws. However Mr. Recusal can do his job without appointing a special prosecutor or special counsel. As Sundance stated a few days ago:

              https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2017/12/23/mccabes-timing-president-trump-responds-to-asst-fbi-director-andy-mccabe-conspicuous-timing-ig-has-over-1-2-million-pages-of-evidence/

              … Chairman Goodlatte is positioning the Judiciary Committee to collect the evidence from the Inspector General, in order to launch a Special Prosecutor investigation based on the documents (evidence) within the lengthy OIG report. This creates a parallel option for Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

              Option #1) the Special Prosecutor goes forward toward indictments based on the OIG
              findings; a massive year-long investigation.
              Option #2) A new DOJ investigation assigned toward criminal indictments, again using the OIG findings from Horowitz; the massive year-long investigation.

              Both options become fully available after Inspector General Horowitz releases his report (date unknown). However, prior to Horowitz releasing his full report, the first prosecutorial option is available based on the interim findings, the 1.2 million pages due on January 15th. Both routes, a special prosecutor investigation assigned by congress, or a criminal probe opened by Sessions, end in a place where indictments are likely. The difference between both routes available is the time-line. However, neither investigation will require too much time because IG Horowitz will be providing almost all of the underlying evidence. Either the congressional Special Prosecutor approach, or the DOJ prosecutor approach, will only require the prosecutor to conduct interviews to enhance the massive amount of evidence already provided by IG Horowitz.
              The bottom line is: the “Gig Is Up”…. the “Ruse is exposed”…. the “plot is evident”.

              Judge Napolitano also says that AG Sessions doesn’t need a special counsel. FBI already has a ton of evidence. Start pressing charges.

              Maybe the investigation might extend to “lawless” Mueller’s lying to Congress, his violations of federal laws as the special counsel, and/or his time as FBI Director when he didn’t see any crimes by Obama and his administration.

The same is true for the intentionally fruitless, feckless or corrupt special counsels galore and special prosecutors. All that is needed is for the DOJ to seek indictments before a grand jury. Wray can make the request of Sessions or Sessions can assign a DOJ prosecutorial leader. As others have written above, we want transparency and we want indictments and prosecutions. Stop with the demands for special counsel or special prosecutors. And stop bashing Sessions.

      Would it be legal and within the prevue of Goodlatte to send a team over to Horowitz’s office as 24/7 oversight to make sure none of the documents are being tainted, redacted, deleted, bleached or otherwise tampered with? Don’t know, just asking.

      I know this—President Trump is the only person in the federal govt I trust. Not another soul carries 100% certainty of fidelity to their jobs, IMO. At every turn, each character that comes into focus carries a level of doubt they can be trusted. Horowitz is an example. We want to trust him as the IG, but can we? Some say yes, some say no. He has way too much company in that regard.

      When we look at the FBI upper tier, DOJ, Mueller and the Democrat lawyers he’s hired and expects us to pay with great generosity, we cannot invest a nickel’s worth of faith in any of them. About the time we think we’re getting a fair shake, they prove themselves worthy of the title, “Swamp Urchin”.

      Down the line, sure seems anybody appointed by, friends with, law firm partners of or just members of the same D.C. cocktail party circuit of the Clinton/Bush/Obama era’s should automatically be viewed with great caution and heavy dose of suspicion.

      How many aides and clerical staff have access to that 1.2 million pages of documents that we’re waiting on? Remember the mysterious fire that happened in an office in HRC’s State Dept? Remember, it was a team of Clinton lawyers that took the liberty of sorting and deleting 33,000 emails. And the staff members that smashed cell phones with hammers. It’s always some vague cast of characters with identities that are never released that cause these nefarious deeds of destroying govt property and evidence useful in criminal investigations. Peons are paid great sums to protect the guilty and scam their fellow Americans. And yet they wonder why we want a peaceful revolt inside D.C.’s cesspool of corruption, fraud, abuse and crime.

      Sure seems some extra efforts to secure this information need to be happening: (1) Those one million plus sheets of paper need to be kept under lock and key in containers impermeable to any force. (2) The building where they are housed needs to be on lockdown with the exterior perimeter guarded with armored military vehicles, patrolled inside and out by military police on duty 24/7. (3) All personnel coming and going from the building need to be logged in and out, their backgrounds rechecked and anyone handling the info should be subjected TODAY to an interview to determine their adherence to proper handling of highly sensitive information. (4) Additional security cameras need to be in use with armed personnel patrolling the hallways. (5) All means necessary to protect this evidence. If we don’t have enough money for extra security measures, fire one of Mueller’s lawyers and use hits salary to cover the tab.

      January 15 is a long way off in terms of what could occur. The American people sure as heck should not get fooled again. When the 15th arrives, those documents better be delivered to the Judiciary Committee in Brinks trucks accompanied by military police. No more ‘mysterious’ fires. No more bleaching, redacting or shredding. No more smashing. No more being told that unnamed staff workers inadvertently destroyed anything. No more leaks by eyes that saw something interesting and called CNN.

      The whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help us, please God. No more ‘justice’ that is unjust.

        Carlin says SPLC has a long history of countering hate & he is grateful for the SPLC and GWU work.

        I see the spokesperson here, Beirich, comparing radical Islam to any white person who refuses to be ashamed of their own white skin. If you are not ashamed of being white, you are a white supremacist and a racist: you must bow down to any and all other races, is what I hear from her and her colleagues.

        Plus, whatever corruption is revealed, any of it that exposes Comey is going to be very important. I think we all want to know exactly what Comey did, what he knew, when he knew it and who he commiserated with.

        After what he’s done to malign our President, if Nunes reveals any hint of Comey corruption, then it’ll be Comey’s turn in the barrel to be subjected to an intensive investigation. If he has adult children, let’s haul them in for interrogation. Get his bank records, question all his associates. For good measure, keep his coat.

        There’s more to Comey than the genteel soul he portrays hiding behind drapes, afraid of the POTUS and tweeting Scripture from Iowa cornfields. And we want to know all of it if he wasn’t faithful to his oath of office.

        When a situation regarding a legal or criminal matter involving the Clintons, a jury will have delivered its guilty verdict, the presiding judge will have rendered sentencing and yet Clinton loyalist Doug Schoen will appear on Fox News to defend them and attempt to raise reasonable doubt. Schoen knows nothing. He only has hacking opinions and old school political beliefs. Schoen is a conniver and a manipulator as evidenced by his authoritative speaking style. He knows nothing…his is to make you believe he does.

        Honestly, unless this entire collusion drama ends with HRC and others dragged off in cuffs and locked up, this will go on and on until the Democrats regain power. This is what people like Schoen are being told to fight for.

    In January 2007, Carlin was named national coordinator of the Computer Hacking and Intellectual Property Program in the DOJ’s Federal Computer Crime Unit. He stayed in that job only seven months before being named special counsel to Federal Bureau of Investigation Director Robert S. Mueller. He became Mueller’s deputy chief of staff in early 2009 and in July of that year was named his chief of staff and senior counsel.

      I don’t believe it either, unfortunately. 8 years is a long time for the good guys to leave and for new people to either be corrupted or to be recruited specifically for their Kool-Aid guzzling loyalty to Hussein and his cause.

      I frequently see long-retired members of various alphabet agencies on TV, waxing poetically and nostalgically about the 99% who are great patriots and the 1% who are bad guys.

      Even if that was true way back when (when the people making the claim were IN those agencies), that was a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…

      If there are so many ‘good guys’ in this rotting and putrid government, why are they all so bashful and introverted? Why hasn’t there been numerous sources analogous to “Deep Throat” feeding information to SOMEBODY about the cartoonish level of corruption running rampant of the last EIGHT YEARS of the Hussein syndicate?

      Where are the high level resignations, and the same people subsequently going public?

      It’s not that Non-disclosure agreements got their tongue. If they were patriots, they would know without question that Treason within the government outweighs any NDA by so many orders of magnitude that it’s embarrassing.

      Doubtless there are lots of other excuses, “all of them good ones, all of them lies“.

      It just doesn’t add up, and never has.

        3) screwing up our foodsources and using genetics for controlling stock market profit/loss

        5) unipartier
        6) there’s probably even more

        Of course, he picked up some of these ideas at UNIVERSITY.

        There are stories and more stories of field FBI agents and DOJ attorneys/investigators doing great work, breaking important cases, and getting convictions; so there are clearly a bunch of people doing their jobs to protect the USA and her citizens. However, there are also too many stories of initiatives and reports from the field offices getting blocked or downplayed by the DC swamp denizens, usually with an apparent political agenda.

        What is being done in DC and a few other particularly significant political/financial districts is apparently (not surprisingly) quite different from what is happening at your local federal courthouse and FBI office. So why aren’t these good people out in the field whistle-blowing to high heaven? They’re busy doing their jobs? They legitimately don’t know what’s going on in DC/S.D., N.Y./etc. and can’t do anything about it if they did? Could be any or all of the above.

        That’s why I’ve said from the outset, Sessions and PDJT should’ve transferred every upper level manager out of DC to the netherest regions and brought top performing field agents and attorneys into DC to get the swamp plumbing unclogged. Since that hasn’t happened yet, the next best course is to prosecute and make glaring examples of those who have sold their souls, in hopes that will bring more at every level to repentance.

    In a normal universe (very much unlike the one we inhabit), I would expect the following:

    • IG launches investigation into corruption, election-tampering and ongoing coup attempt against the POTUS by CIA, FBI, DOJ et al

    • this, by its very nature, is a matter of urgent national security, requiring daily presidential briefings

    • government employees have no right to or expectation of privacy

    • NSA is actively monitoring every email, text message, phone call, HAM radio transmission, smoke signal, audio communications between people in the IG’s office using cups attached by strings, and every other conceivable kind of communication

    • ergo DJT knows all (and has all along)

    • any attempt by the IG to whitewash or cover-up is already doomed to failure and would result in Horowitz’s own ticket to Leavenworth

    • IG Horowitz must know this, and therefore wouldn’t dream of doing anything stupid

    That’s how it would work in any normal universe. Ours is far from normal — bordering on comparisons to an asylum for the criminally insane — but even so, I am reasonably confident that ‘Trump’s got this’.

      I do have faith in Horowitz and him doing the right thing. I’m not 100% on board, but only because I do not know him personally or have enough information. However, I would like to explain what I saw a short time ago.

      First, I’d like to say I wish I would’ve paid more attention to where I was watching clips of David Horowitz talking to one of congress’ committees and outlining his complaint of what Eric Holder had changed when he came in as AG.

      I’m not the sharpest, but what I got from it is that when Holder came in, he changed one of the major rules in how the AIG can obtain information. If one of the agencies didn’t want to give them information requested by the AIG, they didn’t have to unless of course, Holder wrote a letter stating they had to comply. It had to be a letter from Holder or someone high up in the DOJ. I am not a 100% sure, all I know is there had to be a letter if they wanted full cooperation.

      Finally, Chavez (Chavetz?) introduced a bill in 2016, I believe it was December 6th. President obama signed it into law December 21? Or there abouts. I believe it was called AIG Empowerment or close to it. Sorry, memory is being faulty right now. The law gave back AIG’s rights. They no longer had to have a letter demanding all information be handed over forthright from there on out, all it took was the usual request from the AIG.

      Hopefully, after a good nights rest I will remember where I had viewed these clips. It didn’t come from a news source, but more like a blogger or some such thing. I think his name was Trump Soldier.

      After viewing these clips of Horowitz it became evident to me that he was not a fan of our past president and especially his AG Holder. I have no idea how he feels about the hag or her foundation, but I’m leaning more to doing his job as he should. He’s got a lot of experience in ethics and so forth, so I’m hoping he’s a stand up guy and took the ethics part seriously. I also liked what he said about what Holder was doing and how wrong it was for anyone to do as he had done. The AIG is supposed to make sure all of the agencies are on the up-and-up and having one arm tied behind his back, he couldn’t do his job as he had been confirmed to do. I don’t believe he ever came out and called Holder by his name, but everyone knew who Horowitz was talking about, and he laid out some good arguments on behalf of the AIG department.

      If I can find where I had viewed these clips, I promise to get back with that information.

    This is a very interesting paper from the OIG.

    Michael E. Horowitz’s statement before the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs
    concerning “Improving the Efficiency, Effectiveness, and Independence of Inspectors General”

    Long story short. IG Horowitz is one P.O.d dude… Talk about COLD ANGER! It has been smolderring for years. 😈

    “[…]
    Inspector Generals’ Access to Documents and Materials
    While the Inspector General community has been able to generate impressive results, we face significant issues and challenges that affect our independence and ability to conduct effective oversight. For example, timely access to information in our agency’s files remains an important issue and challenge. As I have testified on multiple occasions, in order to conduct effective oversight, an IG must have timely and complete access to documents and materials needed for its audits, reviews, and investigations. This is an issue of utmost importance, as evidenced by the fact that 47 Inspectors General signed a letter in August 2014 to the Congress strongly endorsing the principle of unimpaired Inspector General access to agency records.

    The Inspector General Act (IG Act) could not be clearer – Inspectors General are entitled to complete, timely, and unfiltered access to all documents and records within the agency’s possession. Delaying or denying access to agency documents imperils an IG’s independence, and impedes our ability to provide the effective and independent oversight that saves taxpayers money and improves the operations of the federal government. Actions that limit, condition, or delay access have profoundly negative consequences for our work: they make us less effective, encourage other agencies to take similar actions in the future, and erode the morale of the dedicated professionals that make up our staffs….

    In May 2014, in an attempt to resolve this dispute, the Department’s leadership asked the Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) to issue an opinion addressing the legal objections raised by the FBI. However, nine months later, we are still waiting for that opinion even though, in our view, this matter is straightforward and could have been resolved by the Department’s leadership without requesting an opinion from OLC. I cannot emphasize enough how important it is that OLC issue its opinion promptly because the existing process at the Department, which as described below essentially assumes the correctness of the FBI’s legal position, undermines our independence by requiring us to seek permission from the Department’s leadership in order to access certain records. The status quo cannot be allowed to continue indefinitely.[…]”

    I am really looking forward to this IG report.

    Sundance, I thought Chris Farrell was speaking of a former “very senior FBI agent”, not DOJ. When he mentioned this person got a cushy job at a very large hotel chain, John Giacalone came to mind.

    John Carlin’s last statement in the linked video ^ regarding firing Mueller: “I can’t think of something that both the career and POLITICAL folks (in FBI) would take more seriously than that.”

    First he argues that firing Mueller would be a politically motivated wrong by the Right.

    Then he states that there are “political folks” in the FBI (no doubt, Leftists) who would take that very “seriously.”

    Carlin cannot even grasp that the leftist politics of the “politicalfolks” is at least equally as wrong. And in fact, MORE wrong, because they are sworn to represent a justice that is blind to personal political views.

    In short, only the “feewings of the left” count. “We would take this invasion of our leftist territory seriously” To “take it seriously” is to have an emotional response to it.

    He admits there are POLITICAL folks in the FBI. And he seems okay with that since they are leftists like himself.

    No doubt if “the political folks” were Rightists John Carlin would have big problems with the politicization in the Federal Bureau of Investigators/Police State. But since the politicization favors Leftists he cannot even see the problem, and freely announces it, even threatens with it. Brainwashed totally, not even capable of seeing his own culpability.

  32. This article is a must-re-read. It describes the effort against Trump that began in April 2016 as one that was initiated by the CIA. It claims that the CIA got a report from a Baltic intel agency. In response, the deep state formed a multi-agency task force, with 3 domestic agencies plus the CIA, DNI, and NSA.

    What is important: “Lawyers from the National Security Division in the Department of Justice then drew up an application. They took it to the secret US court that deals with intelligence, the Fisa court, named after the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. They wanted permission to intercept the electronic records from two Russian banks.

    Their first application, in June, was rejected outright by the judge. They returned with a more narrowly drawn order in July and were rejected again. Finally, before a new judge, the order was granted, on 15 October, three weeks before election day. then drew up an application.

    “Mr. Carlin joined NSD after serving as Chief of Staff and Senior Counsel to Robert S. Mueller…” !!!!!!

    I encourage folks who haven’t yet had a look to spend some time at the OIG reports website:

    http://www.oversight.gov

    I started with ‘About’ to get the overview and then drilled down into the data. They advertise 7466 documents available. The search engine appears to be full text and metadata. For keyword searches I had to use quotes to get logical AND behavior (eg: “hatch act”); no quotes appears to give logical OR behavior. The search page also provides haphazardly useful category filters; unfortunately, the OIG appears to conflate the terms “report”, “review”, and “investigation”, so what you get may not align with what you intended. That said, I was able to navigate to areas of interest by agency in fairly short order.

    To date I have read:

    ATF FAST AND FURIOUS (review)

    https://oig.justice.gov/reports/2012/s1209.pdf

    ATF STOREFRONT OPERATIONS (review)

    https://www.oversight.gov/sites/default/files/oig-reports/o1606.pdf

    FBI IMPERSONATION OF JOURNALIST (review)

    https://oig.justice.gov/reports/2016/o1607.pdf

    U.S. ATTORNEY JAMES L. SANTELLE (report of investigation)

    https://www.oversight.gov/sites/default/files/oig-reports/o1605.pdf

    I wanted to get a flavor of what the upcoming OIG report (investigation? review?) might contain. The above selections piqued my interest and may not constitute recommended reading for such insight. On the other hand, a consistent structural outline is surely evident in these documents. If nothing else this to me indicates the topics considered “interesting” to the OIG and their manner of looking into and reporting them.

    My respect for the efforts of Judicial Watch and Chris Farrell is quite high. Nonetheless I think it’s best to form one’s own judgements by reading the primary material. There’s certainly plenty of it. Based on my cursory look to date I have a hard time taking the position that the OIG exists merely to whitewash bad behavior or run interference for bad actors.

    (see previous posting on this thread, above)

    This is what caught my attention in this article. Would love to be able to verify because it would show a connection between the CIA and George Soros. This is where the Baltic Intelligence report allegedly originated and went to Obama’s CIA and Obama and became the ‘muh Russia’ made-up crap the Dems keep pushing. This is really dumb stuff. So dumb.

    Speculative article, but if we find the connections to Soros and his NGO’s it’s a gold mine. I’ll post the part that I like for the REAL collusion:

    “The CIA’s political influence operations around the world are also being exposed every day. Run in tandem with international financier George Soros and his network of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and not-for-profit foundations, the CIA’s attempts to foment rebellions through “themed revolutions” and election engineering are becoming better understood, ironically through the media that Soros and the CIA champion the most – social networking. From the streets of Egypt and Syria, where the CIA’s and Soros’s involvement in artificially-created uprisings is no longer a secret, to Russia, Venezuela, Belarus, and China, where political intervention by the CIA and its team of Soros “do-gooders” is now being met with strong opposition, the cat is out of the bag.”

    “While the CIA has for decades enjoyed the luxury of hiding behind NGOs, missionaries, aid workers, and journalists, the Internet has allowed CIA influence networks to be exposed and its agents, shills, and dupes to be identified.”

    https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2011/12/21/a-third-rate-intelligence-agency-a-failing-power-cia-global-demise.html

    I’m going to do my best to see if I can find the connection. Brennan, Clapper, Obama and Soros and a former Soviet Union Intel source.

      I should clarify. Not interested in the article’s political jabs at the CIA or General Petraeus. That isn’t important to the anti-Trump conspiracy we are dealing with.

      What is important is the Soros link to the CIA, using NGO’s and influence to create the Baltic Intel “report” that has created and caused the muh Russia.

    Approval of a FISA warrant, according to John Carlin, the former assistant attorney general for national security and an ABC News contributor, requires extensive evidence.

    “You have to lay out a series of facts that show that there’s probable cause to believe that someone is an agent of a foreign power,” Carlin said, speaking in general and not about any specific case. “It’s secret because it’s designed for foreign agents.”

      The problem for the FBI leadership right now is that,

      “what the threat is, how it is evolving, what measures are being taken to address it, [and] why those measures are necessary”

      equals with a very fair estimate from public perception

      “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office—that there’s no way he gets elected—but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40…” Strzok’s message, from August of 2016

      As we look ahead to the types of new threats we may face, the importance of engagement with the private sector and with the public cannot be overstated. As recognized in the 9/11 Commission’s Tenth Anniversary Report, “national security leaders must communicate to the public—in specific terms—what the threat is, how it is evolving, what measures are being taken to address it, [and] why those measures are necessary.”

    The Swamp is further revealed. GOP Rep. Will Hurd was an officer of the CIA for 9 years before he ran for Congress in 2012. One of his CIA tasks was educating Congresspeople about CIA and the lay of the land in the Middle East and Afghanistan. He was quoted online today as believing there is an innocent explanation for the text messages between Strzok and Page about needing an “insurance policy” to protect against Trump. I read this today at the Gateway Pundit and am now searching for it to link here. He is the second person to say this, the first being Jeff Sessions. Hurd is no friend of Trump and the deplorables; he opposes the border wall (he is a Texas congressman). I figure is a “Yebby” (Jeb).
