The Mistresses of Mirrored Halls – Looking At The Corrupt DOJ Side of “Operation Trump”…

The leadership of the DOJ and the FBI are intertwined in the 2016 election operation to support candidate Hillary Clinton and defeat candidate Donald Trump. However, most of the investigative discussions center around the FBI side of the equation. There’s a good reason for that.

The FBI side of the conspiracy is pretty straight forward. FBI Director James Comey, FBI Asst. Director Andrew McCabe, FBI Chief Legal Counsel James Baker, FBI Counterintelligence Head Bill Priestap, and FBI Counterintelligence Agent Peter Strzok all played a participatory role in the Trump Operation.

The 2016 FBI counterintelligence operation was surveillance on the Trump Campaign and was thinly disguised under the fraudulent auspices of a FISA warrant, sold as a defense of U.S. democracy from Russia, which permitted the wiretaps and surveillance etc.

Two DOJ people (central to the FBI) relayed and acted as facilitators between the FBI side and the DOJ side: DOJ Deputy Bruce Ohr and FBI/DOJ lawyer Lisa Page. Outlines of their collaborative efforts, and the trails they left behind, have filled the headlines recently.

On the Department of Justice side of the operation, specifically the DOJ leadership involvement, things are less clearly outlined. Again, there’s a reason for that.

The DOJ involvement surrounds legal arguments, processing of FISA applications, and use of the legal system to support the FBI with actionable legal framing (against Trump) mostly after their candidate, Hillary Clinton, was defeated.

In essence, in a bastardized manipulation of Law and Order, the FBI created disorder and the DOJ weaponized that manufactured disorder to launch a legal attack against their ideological political opposition, President-elect Donald Trump. Unlawfulness and Disorder.

However, to best understand the DOJ side, it’s helpful to look at a specific time, September and October 2016. That’s when the second FISA application was presented to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), using the information from the FBI counterintelligence operation (Steele Dossier etc.) as the basis for that application.

As of this writing the FBI and DOJ are refusing to answer foundational questions about that second FISA application and the subsequent FISA warrant that was used as a justification for the Wiretaps and Surveillance that began on the Trump Campaign.

The dates here seem intentionally cloudy because, according to James Comey testimony, the FBI counterintelligence operation began in July 2016, around the same time the Steele Dossier was given to the FBI and simultaneous to the first FISA application being denied.

The second FISA application was approved in/around October 2016. All current media outlines overlook the obvious question of whether the wiretaps and surveillance began in July 2016 without a warrant.

Given the nature of the illegality involved with the entire effort it would be naive to think the FBI waited until October for wiretaps to become legal when their own admissions state they began the operation in July, three months prior.

The story of October 2016 has more interesting aspects. But first, we must gain a greater understanding of the division within the DOJ that was involved.

The National Security Division (NSD) inside the DOJ was where all of the collaboration appears to have taken place. The NSD is a sub-division within the DOJ similar to the Counterintelligence Division within the FBI.

Using the National Security Division (NSD) inside the DOJ presents a specifically useful angle for the purposes of hiding duplicitous, unethical and unlawful conduct. Why? Well, here’s where the mirrored entry starts and also where it gets interesting.

(click image to enlarge)

Responding to a 2015 request by the DOJ Office of Inspector General, Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates told the internal watchdog they cannot investigate the National Security Division.

That’s right, there is essentially no oversight on any activity happening inside the NSD.

In 2015 the OIG requested oversight and it was Sally Yates who responded with a lengthy 58 page legal explanation saying, essentially, ‘nope – not allowed.’ (PDF HERE) All of the DOJ is subject to oversight, except the NSD.

The Department of Justice’s own Inspector General (currently Michael Horowitz who opened a January 2017 investigation into the 2016 politicization of the FBI and DOJ) is not allowed to investigate anything that happens within the NSD branch of the Department of Justice.

See the ‘useful arrangement‘?

Yeah, Funny that.

So it might not be so coincidental the players used on the DOJ side of “Operation Trump” all seem to come from within the National Security Division.

I digress, but remember, I said pay attention to the September/October 2016 time-frame.

DOJ Deputy Attorney Bruce Ohr was “demoted” in the summer of 2017 after the Inspector General discovered unreported 2016 contacts between Ohr and Russian Dossier author Christopher Steele, as well as contact with Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson, in October 2016.  [Also remember Bruce’s wife, Nellie Ohr, was hired by Fusion GPS in April 2016 to start the research that ultimately ended with the sketchy dossier.]

Also in October 2016, right around the time the DOJ lawyers formatted the FBI information (Steele Dossier etc.) for the FISA Application, the head of the NSD, Asst. Attorney General John P Carlin, left his job.

It would have specifically been John Carlin’s responsibility to ensure a valid legal basis for the FISA application submitted to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.

Remember also, the July 2016 application was denied, a rarity.  Therefore, if the second application used ‘sketchy’ enhancements – for the matter of accountability it no longer mattered because Asst. Attorney General John Carlin was headed to the exits.

After NSD head John Carlin left the DOJ he was replaced with Acting Asst. Attorney General Mary McCord.  [*Remember this*]  Also note “Stuart Evans”.

Hopefully I haven’t lost you yet.

Summary of October 2016 so far: ♦Bruce Ohr is meeting with Christopher Steele and Glenn Simpson and not telling his bosses.  ♦The DOJ National Security Division submits FISA application for FBI use (likely using dossier). ♦The Head of DOJ National Security Division, John Carlin, quits.

Wait, it gets better.

I’m not making this up.

Immediately after the second FISA warrant is approved,… in the period where John Carlin has given his notice of intent to leave, but not yet left… Inside those specific two weeks,… On September 26th, 2016, the National Security Division of the DOJ tells the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) they have been breaking the law; and the NSD  specifically informs the court they have been using FISA applications to spy on their domestic political opposition.

Wait, what?

You’ve… just…. got… to… be… kidding… right?

Nope.  LOOK:

.

However, we don’t discover this September 26th 2016 DOJ admission until May 2017. That’s when the FISA court decision on the self-reporting was released to the public, declassified and we find the details outlined within the court ruling.

The NSD admits the details how, under President Obama, the Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch Department of Justice used FISA applications to spy on political opponents, unmasked conversations to discover content, and also disclosed this has been happening for SIX YEARS prior to the beginning of the July 2016 joint FBI/DOJ “Trump Operation”.

Now, SERIOUSLY, does anyone doubt what the October 2016 FISA warrant was about?

You can read the 99-page FISA court ruling above –LINK HERE– and you can watch the explanation of 99-page FISC ruling above as shared by Judicial Watch below:

.

Recapping September/October 2016: ♦Bruce Ohr and Peter Strzok are secretly meeting with Christopher Steele (Dossier) and Glenn Simpson (Fusion GPS). ♦The NSD is submitting a second FISA application to spy on candidate Trump. ♦The Justice Department National Security Division head announces his intention to leave the NSD.  ♦And the DOJ-NSD inform the FISA Court they have weaponized prior FISA warrants for political operations.

Now, retain your blood pressure and watch National Security Division, Deputy Asst. Attorney General, Office of Intelligence, Stuart Evans testify to congress on June 27th 2017:

Additionally, if I’m going to drag you into the rabbit hole where the corruptocrats speak in riddles – you might want to help me guess an answer this question:

@00:26 Who is: “I took a senior member of the National Security Division”?

.

The date Sally Yates is describing is January 26th, 2017 – when she went to see White House Counsel Don McGhan to discuss Mike Flynn’s January 24th ambush interview with FBI agent Peter Strzok.

My hunch is the “senior member of the National Security Division” was Mary McCord.

I seem to vaguely remember something from WikiLeaks emails about four political women who would ensure Hillary Clinton’s victory…

IG Stimulated Releases of Information:

♦Release #1 was the FBI Agent Strzok and Attorney Lisa Page story; and the repercussions from discovering their politically motivated bias in the 2015/2016 Clinton email investigation and 2016/2017 Russian Election investigation.

♦Release #2 outlined the depth of FBI Agent Strzok and FBI Attorney Page’s specific history in the 2016 investigation into Hillary Clinton to include the changing of the wording [“grossly negligent” to “extremely careless”] of the probe outcome delivered by FBI Director James Comey.

♦Release #3 was the information about DOJ Deputy Bruce Ohr being in contact with Fusion GPS at the same time as the FISA application was submitted and granted by the FISA court; which authorized surveillance and wiretapping of candidate Donald Trump; that release also attached Bruce Ohr and Agent Strzok directly to the Steele Dossier.

♦Release #4 was information that Deputy Bruce Ohr’s wife, Nellie Ohr, was an actual contract employee of Fusion GPS, and was hired by F-GPS specifically to work on opposition research against candidate Donald Trump. Both Bruce Ohr and Nellie Ohr are attached to the origin of the Christopher Steele Russian Dossier.

♦Release #5 was the specific communication between FBI Agent Strzok and FBI Attorney Page. The 10,000 text messages that included evidence of them both meeting with Asst. FBI Director Andrew McCabe to discuss the “insurance policy” against candidate Donald Trump in August of 2016.

        Preet Bahara was the ONLY holdout when the President asked for the resignation of everyone in that department, which was a common occurrence with the transfer of power. Trump had to fire Preet, and Preet went to work as a big wheel in NYC with a vow to take down the President. At the time, and still to this day, I wonder why more departments weren’t asked for their resignations.

    Snip (Nov 2017)

    “Former Acting Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, currently a distinguished lecturer at Georgetown Law, along with current sitting District Attorneys Mark Dupree (Kansas City, Kan.), Stanley Garnett (Boulder, Colo.), Mark Gonzalez (Corpus Christi, Texas), Christian Gossett (Winnebago County, Wisc.), David Soares (Albany, N.Y.), Raúl Torrez (Albuquerque, N.M.) and Cyrus Vance (New York County, N.Y.), State Attorney Marilyn Mosby (Baltimore, Md.), and Prosecuting Attorney Carol Siemon (Ingham County, Mich.), and former Police Chiefs William Lansdowne (San Diego and Richmond, Calif.) and Brendan Cox (Albany, N.Y.) are among the signatories to the amicus brief filed Monday in Maurice Walker v. City of Calhoun, Georgia, a class action suit now pending before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.

    “A bail system that indiscriminately jails indigent individuals charged with misdemeanors based solely on their economic status while immediately releasing those who can afford to post a bond is inconsistent with our country’s promise of equal justice,” Yates said.

    The brief was drafted by ICAP Senior Litigator Mary McCord, who served for 20 years as a federal prosecutor and was Acting Assistant Attorney General for National Security before joining the Georgetown Law faculty. In August, ICAP filed a similar amicus brief on behalf of prosecutors in ODonnell v. Harris County, a suit challenging the money bail system in that Texas county.”

            https://theintercept.com/2016/11/01/heres-the-problem-with-the-story-connecting-russia-to-donald-trumps-email-server/

            “The Intercept (and other outlets) were presented with three documents: an academia-style white paper about the server, an analysis of that white paper, and a sprawling dossier on Alfa Bank. The author of the analysis paper refused to comment on the record or allow his name to be published. Both Tea Leaves and the analysis author said they did not know who wrote the other documents, and would not say how they obtained them. Professor L. Jean Camp, an esteemed computer scientist quoted at length in the Slate piece and also interviewed by The Intercept, said she knew the author of the Alfa Bank document — compiled with the exhaustive detail of a political oppo team, not a university researcher — but would not reveal who it was. Tea Leaves himself told The Intercept that he had to keep his identity and methods secret because “I run a cybersecurity company and I do not want DDOS and never have we been DDOS, nor do I want other attention.” ”

            Wow. Looks like Fusion GPS/Steele might be the facilitator/author of the “sprawling dossier on Alfa Bank.”

            Hope Alfa Bank and their lawyers Kirkland & Ellis know about the exposing of Tea Leaves as April Lorenzen.

    It’s referred to in the document as “US-person queries of upstream internet data.” What’s that? Well, the NSA scoops up everything that passes over the internet. Everything. What NSA analysts were doing was searching for US-person names (itself a no-no) that went beyond “to” or “from” and included “about.” They were using specific names of US persons (not supposed to do that) to search their scooped up internet data for every email or other internet communication that was to, from, or that included any INTERNAL reference to that name.

    It doesn’t specifically say, but my question on this is: do they have voice transcription software that allows them to search for spoken references, for example references contained in scooped up and stored skype conversations? Oh, and any organization that stores its records remotely on a server transmits them to that server over the internet, don’t they? Oh, and documents stored on the cloud? Scooped and searchable.

    The document doesn’t say, but the ultimate question is this: what US-person names were they searching? One thing if it was an American whom they knew financially supports international terrorism, but quite another if they were searching “Donald Trump.”

      Or how about “John Roberts.” How often did we sit and wonder why people in key places like the Supreme Court voted or acted in a way very different from their supposed principles? Roberts support for ACA was a crucial vote so was he blackmailed into seeing things Obama’s way?
      The follow-on investigations need to focus on what they did with the information obtained. We know what they did with the IRS and now that there has been an apology all is well. Hardly, the harmed public had to put up with another 4-years of Obama’s criminal enterprise.
      Did these government investigators put the screws to Roberts for the ACA case in the Supreme Court or did they pressure other key officials for other Presidential priorities?
      As has been said, the ends justify the means so it is necessary to understand what ends they sought and rectify those results.
      Not to harp on the Affordable Care Act and the Supreme Court’s support of it as a tax, had that gone the other way we’d not be sitting under the cloud of ACA now. So if there was some skeleton in Robert’s closet, and they found them via this type of program, then pressured him to swing the vote, wouldn’t things make more sense? Scary

    Was Yates being terribly naive in informing Pres. Trump that they had been illegally spying on Flynn? Did she not realize that his team would appreciate the gravity of her admission? It’s difficult to believe she was being transparent, given her subsequent disobedience to the travel order.

It is not rational to believe that nothing changes or that you personally know the mindset of individuals other than yourself. It is not rational to complain constantly and exude an air of hopelessness and helplessness regarding your situation – you have no reason to live or carry on if you have no hope. Look to Trump for an impressive example of the power of positive thinking. MAGA is about hopefulness and positive action period.

              Last night when SD asked for assistance with research you responded with the comment “what a dog and pony show”. Why did you even post that opinion? To ridicule your fellow posters and SD? To belittling those of us who wanted to help? To demean those who still have faith and belief in President Trump and his team that maybe this time it will be different?

          Many of us have watched as the elitists in our government have been allowed to play by a different set of rules for a very long time. More often than not, the violations and crimes have been chucked down the no-memory hole, or swept under the rug. The way they have operated is by dragging things on and on until it’s forgotten or is ‘old news’.

          We’ve already seen and heard the DOJ declare that they would not pursue and charges against Lois Lerner (of weaponized IRS leadership fame), even though there is clear evidence that the IRS acted wrongly and intentionally. But she sure is still collecting her taxpayer funded pension and benefits. We’re seeing lots of government pukes (elected officials and public “servants” running out the door, collecting their taxpayer-funded benefits, even though they participated In obviously illegal activities, we have yet to see any charges.

          There is NOTHING that any of us want to be other than wrong about this, however, there is nothing we’ve seen so far that indicated it is going to be different. I’m i. The front of the line wanting to have to eat crow about this. Even have the salt, pepper and garlic ready. But I’m also not expecting to have to eat crow. There is a slew of indictments filed in the system? Until they are opened, we don’t know that it is any of these slime, or a bunch of nobodies anyone has heard of that could be gang members, perverts, or who knows what. We don’t know they are or aren’t anyone or anything that proves one side or the other right. personally, after everything we’ve experienced, it seems pretty Pollyanna to me to expect anything different.

    The leaders within the departments of the Trump Executive face a major obstacle to stopping leaks and resistance from within the very departments controlled by Trump appointees. Namely the rules for removing non-appointee professionals from their jobs. The removal of a public employee is not as straight forward as “you are fired”, as there are major administrative rules and causal regulations that have to be satisfied. That being said, the 1,000’s of Obama created (unvetted) professionals are going to activate in manner that will painfully support their removal one at a time. Thus there will be continued snubs to congress, continued leaks and continued resistance to presidential policy or direction. This form of sabotage, put in place by Obama and his executive, will be far more destructive and slowing than any resistance offered by Democrat Congressional members. These people will create the “broken promises” and “some scandal” issues for the 2018 and 2020 elections.

      In the university professors with tenure are untouchable — unless there is a major curriculum reform that requires different tracks, less of this or more of that, and many fewer professors. These curriculum reforms are usually required by some reading of accreditation standards, and through some months/year of faculty discussions about the changes.

      Along the way early retirement is usually offered. However, we don’t want the government’s criminals retired, we want them jailed.

      In a bureaucracy, downsizing or cutting the size and missions of the department seems all that is needed for many to go. After that careful supervision with write-ups for sub-standard behavior/work/activities and probation. After probation, “you’re fired”. Holdovers still in their job, maybe even demoted, will think twice before lying and cheating, at least blatantly.

The media is completely run by CIA and is weaponized. Start looking back and it becomes crystal clear . All those things we couldn’t quite put our finger on is now the elephant in the room.
    Hillary did get the Special because she was a presidential candidate. She got it because she was part of the Machine. How many bodies and careers have the destroyed? These are criminals that have been standing in judgement of us. We the People.
    For years Trump has seen this from the inside. He knew . When he came down the escalator he knew. Now that we are exposing and destroying the Machine, maybe, just maybe our best and brightest will again step up to the plate. People and candidates we choose.

    Okay. I freely admit that I know nothing other than what I read about these matters or have witnessed on news broadcasts.

    But it seems to me that by September 26, 2016 the realization of the distinct possibility that DJT MIGHT soon become PDJT made it necessary for the crooked persons to devise a countermeasure, and throw some chaff.

    Hear me out.

    The chaff is “the NSA may have been improperly surveilling US citizens, and this court has just now found it out!!!! Look!!! Squirrel!!

    (Excuse me if I look a bit like suspicious cat here, but I sincerely doubt that this was NEWS to this court, or anyone else with any Ultra top secret security clearance in the BO administration, the Fed Courts system especially in DC, or any of the other high ranking “Intel community leaders.” )

    That it was a bad thing, I concur, but in the long document above it seems to me that it is a shiny squirrel meant to cover for the actual conspiracy to commit treason, (and yes it included foreigners: Brits, like Steele, are NOT US CITIZENS!) against a likely future sitting President of the United States, which began before or while he was a candidate and (this is IMPORTANT) was then extended BEYOND his Inauguration with the express PERMISSION of this FISA Court.

      “At the October 26, 2016 hearing, the Court ascribed the government’s failure to disclose those IG and OCO reviews at the October 4, 2016 hearing to an institutional “lack of candor” on the National Security Agency’s part and emphasized that this is a very serious Fourth Amendment Issue.”

      (A pause to remind everyone that by November 19, shortly after the election of DJT, the MSM was headlining and salivating over the “recommended” removal of Admiral Mike Rogers, Director of NSA. I think the presstitutes were beginning the “Look people shiny shiny squirrel over here! Do not look at the BO-man/conspirators behind the curtain, attempting to take down the newly-elected president of the USA! Thus ending citizen’s right to vote!….NO! Don’t look there!!

      Look here!! Squirrel!! Shiny shiny!! NSA has been watching you!”)

      As if all of the other Intel agencies, under past presidents including BO, were innocent 😇of any wrongdoing whatsoever against the US citizens and Constitution. As if we would have any portion of the US Constitution left if the conspirators (and some of those former presidents!) had their way.

      Also, notice the upset of the Court that “the Court” (ie the judge) did not know there was an investigation IG and OCO. And assigned blame solely to NSA.

      Continuing after my pause:

      “Based on the government’s representation that an extension of time through January 31, 2017 would provide the government sufficient opportunity to asses and report on the problem and appropriate remedial plan and was consistent with the national security, the Court extended the time period for its consideration of the 2016 Certifications to that date.”

      “The government’s” here of course is the BO government…

      Please notice that the “extended time period” allowed by the court on September 26, 2016, goes well beyond the date of the inauguration January 20, 2017, of President Donald J. Trump.

      If the extended time period includes an extension of the FISA court’s approval of and extension of the original request to continue to surveil DJT, does that not amount to FISA court’s approval of their original conspiracy, and extend it into conspiracy and thus treason (remembering the foreign persons involved in the dossier) against a sitting President?

      But hey. I’m just a citizen trying to comprehend that document up there. Maybe I don’t comprehend it.

        I just said the possibility that DJT MIGHT become president had dawned on some high ranking people by October 26. They would be the ones who knew the truth about the fakeness of the news and polls. They would know Hill could not get attendance at rallies, and DJT got enourmous crowds: they saw beyond the camera angles, of course.

        Sure they still were banking on their cheating with fixed-computer votes, cheating with illegal alien’s votes, cheating with miscounting votes, bussing in out of staters.

        But some few must have said, “What if he wins? What if he gets enough votes to cause the electoral college votes to go his way in spite of all our efforts?”

        I am saying that one of those might have been the FISA judge. Or someone above that judge (BO! Who could not get much interest in his OWN rally, much to his probable surprized chagrin.)

        Thus the long squirrel document focused on the 4th Amendment, to have an advance document that could be used, just in case, to *distract* from the FACT that back in September, the FISA Court had approved this fake-dossier conspiracy and surveillance…

        beyond the point where the whole thing became more than what could be “whitewashed” away by “Inappropriate bias against a candidate/an incumbent”…

      Trey Gowdy’s failure to bring to light (or his effort to bury) the truth about the Libya – Syria gun running conspiracy (Operation Zero Footprint) and what REALLY led to the death of Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi permanently soiled his reputation. It was all there for everyone to see, and yet not once did Gowdy publicly ask those responsible why we had a CIA Annex in Benghazi in the first place, and what Stevens was doing there. He didn’t ask because he already knew, and he wanted to make sure the rest of America didn’t find out.

      “Why is Trey Gowdy suspect?”

      Because of the hype leading up to his Benghazi hearings and the results. All talk. No action.

      That pattern has been repeated several times since. He has a good skill set. He knows how to behave in hearings for dramatic video coverage. And he does not take effective action and use the information gained in those hearings. He does not go for the kill when it’s time to do so.

      A major point is often missed: many comments in the threads in the last couple of days question is asked: “How can we get ‘the people’ (or the sheeple) to believe all this?”

      Whether or not a plurality of the citizens believe the facts is not the issue. The issue is whether or not those in authority have the willingness to apply the law and deliver the consequences appropriately. In other words, put a stop to it.

      There’s nothing so shocking and cleansing for a lawless society than the application of law and the consequences of ignoring it.

      Twenty years ago I was driving in a Minnesota blizzard with three grandsons in the back seat (5, 6, 7 years). The rowdiness was escalating and they disregarded my final announcement that, if it did not stop, I would pull off the road and stop the car.

      It got very,VERY quiet when, a few minutes later, I pulled off the road. Turned the car off. We sat there in the blizzard in deafening silence until I was convinced they had gotten the point.

      I never had trouble with them acting up that way in the car again with long drives we often had to take in rural MN.

      Trey never pulls off the road.

      He just keep talking. And talking. And talking.

      Those in places of authority need to use their authority and exercise their responsibility to stop this. It would never have happened in the first place – if they had been doing THAT – in the first place.

      Lawlessness casts a really long shadow.

    Before reading comments… I have read half way through the FISA court document and have come away with the conclusion that NONE of these players involved in “Operation Trump” will be prosecuted. They have very acutely covered themselves with law. They have weaponised the 702 against their “enemies” successfully. They even have different rules for NCTC – and I recall Farkas talking about how they made sure to disseminate the information far and wide – in that it does not preclude them from retaining USPersons info under cover of criminality which is different from the intended purpose of NSA collection of data (Foreign intelligence). This tracks with the excuses for the liberal unmasking requests that were made during the last months of the Obama admin. Note also the extended retention of NCTC collections even if it is deemed to be deletable by FISA rules applied to NSA/CIA.

    Their perfect cover is Manafort and Page. Note also that prior to this date, the NSA was ILLEGALLY collecting upstream intel for “about” – i.e. if a key word was mentioned (such as Trump) then that data was used, thus the SPYING ON TRUMP CAMPAIGN.

    Sorry, nothing will come of it unless the people decry what they have done. Sunlight is needed. BIGLY.

Considering that the uranium really wasn’t for Iran; the various planes loaded with pallets of unmarked and untraceable cash also never made it to Iran and so much more is surely intended of future much more sinister and darker plans as service to the NWOers. It’s just unfathomable what might have been!
    Despite having these collage of players in her corner together with governments outside the US they still could not pull if off and we are blessed with her loss.
    They were 100% convinced that she would not lose – imagine that! In the end she did and the unseen hand of God made DT’s win possible assisted by us deplorables.

    I posted this earlier about Mary McCord

    The article starts out with a LOT of Trump bashing by Mattathias Schwartz

    BIO: Mattathias Schwartz is a former national security reporter for The Intercept. He has served as a contributing writer at the New York Times Magazine, a staff writer at The New Yorker, and is currently a term member at the Council on Foreign Relations. In the past, he has contributed to the print editions of the Wall Street Journal

    http://www.danger.today/news/author/mattathias-schwartz/
    “….Mary B. McCord, who has been helping oversee the Justice Department’s probe into Russian interference in the presidential election, is stepping down from her post as the acting head of the department’s national security division and leaving the federal government in the coming weeks, a source familiar with McCord’s role told The Intercept….

    McCord is a career civil servant who became acting assistant attorney general in charge of the national security division in October, when John Carlin, an Obama appointee, resigned. In that role, McCord was responsible for counterintelligence and counterterrorism investigations at Justice. In his testimony before Congress, FBI Director James Comey described the Russia probe as “a counterintelligence investigation” and said it would “include an assessment of whether any crimes were committed.”

    “Any major investigation related to counter-intelligence or cyber-related counter-intelligence would fall under Mary’s leadership,” said Luke Dembosky, who served as deputy assistant attorney general at the national security division until last spring…

    In March, McCord announced the indictment of two Russian intelligence officers and two hackers accused of accessing Yahoo’s network and the contents of webmail accounts. At a press conference, McCord said that Yahoo hacking case was “a separate investigation” from the hacks of the Democratic National Committee. “That’s an ongoing investigation,” she said of the DNC matter…”

    I suggest that everyone start spreading this news (that the National Security Division of the DOJ under the Obama Admin had been breaking the law; and the NSD specifically informs the court they have been using FISA applications to spy on their domestic political opposition).

    Contact Congress (Judiciary/Intel committees and others), the President, the DOJ, and the DOJ/FBI and DEMAND that they investigate this and charge the criminals. Also, spread the word on other sites (Fox News, Breitbart, etc.). The only way we hope to get justice is to demand it. Otherwise, these corrupt pigs will get away with all their crimes.

    The following is the best single suggestion I’ve heard for Congressional GOP actions that needs to be taken over the “Trump Project” and the “Steele Dossier”

    The GOP Congress should condition renewal of domestic surveillance legislation on prosecution of abuses. This is possible by limiting renewal to six-month increments and requiring regular non-classified reports to Congress on the progress of prosecution of abuses.

    That public spotlight is a pretty good motivator for the secret agencies.

      According to section 540, if a salary is included within “appropriated funds,” then payment of that portion of appropriated funds to any employee failing to comply IS
      “using appropriated funds to deny the OIG timely access” by paying appropriated funds to someone who is denying timely access.

      If so, then “department components” should refuse to pay any employee at any level who refuses to give access, for each day of any length of time beyond “timely.” And for goodness sake DOCUMENT their refusal as “gross insubordination” and “disobedience of the law stated in Section 540.” That should surely speed up the process of firing a Federal Employee.

      Any “department component” who fails to withhold “appropriated funds/salary” from any person who will not give access in a timely manner is guilty of using appropriated funds in a manner that denies the OIG timely access. That person also needs to be documented for “gross insubordination,” and “disobedience of the law as stated in section 540.”
      Which should lead to his firing also.

    SPECIAL PROVISIONS CONCERNING THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE
    SEC. 8E. (a)(1) Notwithstanding the last two sentences of section 3(a), the Inspector General shall be under the authority, direction, and control of the Attorney General with respect to audits or investigations, or the issuance of subpoenas, which require access
    to sensitive information
    concerning—
    (A) ongoing civil or criminal investigations or proceedings;
    (B) undercover operations;
    (C) the identity of confidential sources, including protected witnesses;
    (D) intelligence or counterintelligence matters; or

    a serious threat to national security.

    (2) With respect to the information described under paragraph (1), the Attorney General may prohibit the Inspector General from carrying out or completing any audit or investigation, from accessing information described in paragraph (1), or from issuing any subpoena, after such Inspector General has decided to initiate, carry out, or complete such audit or investigation, access such information, or to issue such subpoena, if the Attorney General determines that such prohibition is necessary to prevent the disclosure of any information described under paragraph (1) or to prevent the significant impairment to the national interests of the United States.

    (3) If the Attorney General exercises any power under paragraph (1) or (2), the Attorney General shall notify the Inspector General in writing stating the reasons for such exercise. Within 30 days after receipt of any such notice, the Inspector General shall transmit a copy of such notice to the Committees on Governmental Affairs and Judiciary of the Senate and the Committees on Government Operations and Judiciary of the House of Representatives, and to other appropriate committees or subcommittees of the Congress.

    (b) In carrying out the duties and responsibilities specified in this Act, the Inspector General of the Department of Justice—
    (1) may initiate, conduct and supervise such audits and investigations in the Department of Justice as the Inspector General considers appropriate;
    (2) except as specified in subsection (a) and paragraph (3), may investigate allegations of criminal wrongdoing or administrative misconduct by an employee of the Department of Justice, or may, in the discretion of the Inspector General, refer such allegations to the Office of Professional Responsibility or the internal affairs office of the appropriate component of the Department of Justice;

    I sure hope AG Sessions was able to turn IG Horowitz loose on the part of the swamp infesting the DOJ.

    That’s the Star Chamber.

    ……………………
    “The Star Chamber (Latin: Camera stellata) was an English court of law which sat at the royal Palace of Westminster, from the late 15th century to the mid-17th century (c. 1641), and was composed of Privy Councillors and common-law judges, to supplement the judicial activities of the common-law and equity courts in civil and criminal matters.

    The Star Chamber was originally established to ensure the fair enforcement of laws against socially and politically prominent people so powerful that ordinary courts would probably hesitate to convict them of their crimes. However, it became synonymous with social and political oppression through the arbitrary use and abuse of the power it wielded.”

      The FISC court memorandum opened the door to this. The Trump admin should file:

      A (writ of) mandamus is an order from a court to an inferior government official ordering the government official to properly fulfill their official duties or correct an abuse of discretion.

      To the Supreme Court and have John Roberts hear the case because he runs the FISC court personnel selection and essentially oversees the operation.

      A good lawyer could make this work for President Trump IMHO
