Rep. Ron DeSantis: “I don’t believe the FBI”…

Representative Ron DeSantis (R-FL), House Judiciary Committee (Team Goodlatte) member, appears with Lou Dobbs to discuss “missing” FBI texts:

.

Note:  Keep pounding the drums (it’s fun), but remember, there’s no rush to a Special Counsel because we want the “small group” to testify (to Nunes) first.  Nunes, Goodlatte, Grassley and Horowitz are burying those who are due to be questioned with complex considerations of self-preservation prior to their appearances.

Get them locked-in to a specific point, and keep them off balance.  Allow them to think their communication may or may not be discovered, prior to -and during- testimony.  Then unleash the investigative power of the SC armed with all the previous IG evidence.  It’s solid strategery.

    This questions may have been asked already, but …

    What happens if/when these people plead the Fifth? Is that an option for them when Congress or anyone else is asking them questions? Or am I misunderstanding the type of interviews/questioning that will take place?

    I only ask because I recall that rotten “human” Lois Lerner pulling the same shitake.

      Typically federal employees can be fired for failing to asnwer questions in an internal investigation of wrong doing. FBI agents and DOJ lawyers are not unionized although low level DOJ clerical staff are in the AFGE.

        If your boss tells you to murder somebody,

        You get a pension with benefits like nothing a soldier will ever see?
        Paid for by the very people you perpetrated the crime on.

        Why I used the word murder.
        When my government tyrannizes my ability to form a perfectly legal way to move my life in the direction I chose within the laws of my country, and gets away with it, even though it is against the laws of our Republic.

        I’m no longer a free man in a free country.

    • They can be compelled to testify, like anyone else. The 5th Amendment means that such compelled testimony can’t be used against the person testifying, but such testimony can be used against someone else.

        Huh. This is still America. Everyone can plead the 5th. It is still in the constitution. You cannot be compelled to testify. They could fire you after going through the six month civil service process. But, no, they cannot make you squeal.

        • With all respect, rf121, a witness absolutely can be compelled to testify. It happens every day. The 5th Amendment says that one cannot be required to testify against one’s self; it says nothing about a blanket right to refuse to answer questions in court (and, by extension, Congress). Do you see the difference? So if a witness declines to answer a question on “5th Amendment grounds” (i.e. that he does not wish to incriminate himself), Congress or a court can compel him to answer on condition that he is granted immunity from any prosecution based on his answers. That addresses the 5th Amendment prohibition against required self-incrimination. This is an ancient legal concept and is nothing new.

      I remember that. Deepstate knows their fake “hearings” were staged and would never reveal the necessary questions to spot the evidence.

      I don’t think that will be the case this time. This scandal dwarfs the IRS one. People will taken down. The real question is just how many people we can flush out of the rabbit hole. Enough evidence has to be gathered and presented to the point where silence is essentially an admission of guilt.

      Pleading the 5th is one thing. But their testimony is moot if there’s sufficient evidence and evidentiary integrity that they committed crimes.

      Of course… having smoking gun evidence that’s inadmissible for whatever reason is a non starter. Time will tell.

      It’s an advantage, for sure, that so many of these folks have been left in place this entire time. The odds of them doing stupid things are so much more likely while they were on a “slack leash”.

        If there is enough evidence to bring charges for committed crimes, why go through the ‘hearing’ charade at all? Wouldn’t the same information be made known at trial – perhaps more so since they would actually be defending their own freedom?

      Sure, they will plead the 5th and those mean, tough congessman will come out and say, “sorry folks, we really wanted to do something but you know, you just can’t do anything when someone pleads the 5th so they must be innocent”. Then Gowdy, Sessions, Nunes, Porter, Grassley, Page, Strock, Comey, Priestep, McCabe, Ohr, Schultz, Lerner, Rosenstein, Lynch, Mueller and Hildabeast will all go down to the local watering hole together, or Comet Pizza, and drink and have good laughs together at about how sneaky they were in throwing off the minions.

      Yes, Lois, did that and is retired with full benefits now and gardening. AG Sessions did respond that conservatives were targeted and dropped the matter with no criminal charges for those who participated within the O Adm.
      With the missing texts, the reputation of the FBI/DOJ is in shreds right now. I can’t believe a small group of agents don’t come forward for the sake of the institution and tell what is going on just out of sheer embarrassment if nothing else.
      For Jeff Sessions to have allow Wray to go to the Congressional Committee without fully exhausting EVERY retrieval method of the texts is unprofessional and embarrassing. I would have included a laundry list of every method used to find the texts. And, for Wray to still be employed after Sessions told him to fire McCabe, which Wray refused, is unimaginable. There will be a hashtag soon for #FireSessions.

      The 5th is a constitutional right. There are no exceptions. In America you cannot be compelled to testify against yourself (right to remain silent). It is an absolute right.

      It might be true that you can be fired or disciplined, but you can’t be prosecuted for it.

      Wray is beginning to look like Chris Christie’s revenge. He was a Bush Dep AG and ran the Enron investigation which was very poorly litigated according to the author of the book License to Lie. Wray’s prosecutors in the Enron pulled many dirty legal tricks led by notorious Andrew Weissman. The Courts threw out quite a few convictions in that case.

        You are correct. Even with “Snap Chat” there is still the imprint. A third party forensic team needs to be called in w/ an Subject Matter Expert from the carrier–Verizon, ATT, etc., and they will be able to recover the docs. Everybody knows this which then begs the question why put on this PR stunt? Who will gain from further negative press about this crime? Why would the lower level FBI agents not come forward and try to help with this reputation under seize? Rudy Guiliani’s team of forensic folks can find this data quickly.

    Peter Strzok and Lisa Page are truly the gift 🎁 that keeps on giving. Even if they want to Arkanside the two of them, their text messages will live on. 50K texts messages will be their gift to the Executioner as the others face the firing squad. I truly believe when those missing text messages are found, you will see texts that call for the assassination of our President and/or members of his family. Nothing was off limits in their world. They were the saviors of our country in their minds. By all means necessary if that is what it would take.

    Tonight is going to be especially hard on them and all the other treasonous POSs. The mere fact that more and more is coming out and there is nothing any of them can do to stop it is killing them. I truly believe they are being eaten from within their own bodies. Whether out of fear of what is to come or the fact that they are so narcissistic that they can’t cope with losing. They are unable to eat or keep food down. The pills and alcohol are no longer allowing their minds to turn-off. They are being deprived of sleep because of the thoughts that continue to race in their minds.

    The question is how long before they give in to that gun sitting on their nightstand. At some point wanting to escape their hell on Earth will allow the gun to win. The gun knows it and they know it. It is just a matter of time!

    The statute of limitations will run out before these scoundrels are ever indicted. The swamp is taking care of its own. Clinton and Obama are laughing their collective Communist asses off watching the obfuscation, delay and slithering by the congressional politicians and lifer beaurcrats in DoJ and the FBI.

    I would love to see these bastards all hang in front of the Capitol building but my expectation of justice for the people is waning.

    Mueller’s drawn out Investigation with only four charged for process crimes is proof that it’s a cover-up and a side show to cover for the treason and sedition carried out by Obama, his staff, the IC agencies, the DoJ and the FBI. I’m heart sick that the US has become nothing more than a banana republic and that the elite are above the law and go unpunished for their crimes.
