FBI Director Chris Wray and Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein Visit White House…

According to most media reports the Justice Department viewed the House Intelligence Committee memo yesterday; and with Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe being removed, there’s a myriad of reasons why FBI Director Wray and Deputy AG Rosenstein could be visiting the White House.

.

Two possibilities include:

•Candidate recommendations for replacement of FBI Deputy Director.
•Discussion with NSC, or OLC, about House Intel memo content/release.

    The memo will not be released. All the hype about the memo has been political code-speak for the fact it will never be released. Trump is working out a leveraging deal. He prefers deals to scorched earth. This is not to say that Trump has any control over the release or not, only that I believe he is moving with the forces at play (inherent reluctance of congress to release it — contrary to what they say) to make an arrangement that leads to reform within FBI.

      Actually, he does. The President has five days to determine whether it will be released, once the House committee refers it to him.

          I would hope that he does not gloat. I don’t think he will. This is as serious as it can get next to outright war. The shadow government (with its deep state loyalists) wields tremendous uncontrolled power in places and ways most of us don’t know about. He is exposing people who will commit unspeakable crimes to protect their turf and power.

            AMEN. As satisfying as that would be…no. Sad and serious– that’s what this situation is. Our most important, respected law enforcement people went rogue on behalf of one political party with paid-for propoganda from main stream media. We are in a danger zone. Ain’t the time for spite or gloating….

      Reform starts with a good house cleaning of upper level management. The American public deserves to have a clear eyed understanding of the political and, I think, criminal corruption of our so-called premier criminal investigatory organization. Dirty cops have been uncovered at the state level since , well, forever. It is time for the public to see that similar corruption has been allowed to pervade at the federal level and, therefore, that public reforms can be put in place. And, yes, some folks probably can and should be charged with crimes. Prosecuted and convicted. There’s been a damaging fire underneath all the smoke that has been coming from that building.

      So, President Trump has 5 days to either object or not, to the release of “the 4-page memo.”

      It got to President Trump this evening.
      Tomorrow he calls Chucky Scheemer, and says: “I got this memo. I read it. If it gets released, the Democrats can kiss their current slim majority goodbye, and keep maybe 20 Senate seats. ”
      “Or, I could object to it, and maybe keep it out of the Press.”
      “What I want is my Immigration Overhaul, as I laid it out, and then I want you to roll over on the Infrastructure Plan that is coming out, and I want you to stop running to the Press to attack me. You can let Pelosi keep on, since nobody listens to her or Maxine Waters.”
      “What’s it going to be, Chuck? We make a deal, or I let you and your (D) Party get blown to bits?”

      President Trump and Chucky make the deal, and it’s announced, and then the Full House votes to release the “4-page memo” anyhow / anyway.

      OMG, that would be glorious!

The second email is a follow-up to that email on May 16, 2016 from Comey’s Chief of Staff Rybicki to FBI officials Peter Strzok, Jonathan Moffa, FBI General Counsel James Baker, Trisha Anderson, E.W.

      When you think about how Rosenstein ought to react and supervise Mueller, he should call a meeting with Mueller and invite Sessions to it. Ask Mueller to have a seat. He’s all comfortable now. And the Rosenstein asks him; Mr. Mueller, as you recall I asked you in writing to investigate foreign interference with the 2016 presidential election. I would appreciate your reporting on your investigation of Hillary Clinton campaign and DNC relating to the now known facts establishing their hiring of a foreigner by the name of Chris Steele to obtain rumor and innuendo from other foreign operatives in Russia that was to be used to destroy the campaign of Mr. Trump. Have you readied indictments as yet against those targets? Well, let’s not get ahead of ourselves, just advise us what Clinton campaign and DNC operatives have been called before what I assume must be a secret grand jury you empaneled. I’m impressed by your skillful manner in which you’ve avoided that leaking to the press. We are all ears now.

    Trump will not mention anything about Russia or the ‘Memo’ as he has too much to cover, the past year, future plans. If he mentions either Russia or Memo that is all the press will talk about. If he does not mention either the Press will talk about him not talking about either, but then they will be forced to mention past and future…

    The BIG question that no one is asking ANY DemonRAT is…..” WHY are you objecting to the release of the Nunes Memo , since your presenting an opossing memo”?. Re’ Commiey tweet……. “Andy, don’t worry! . After you lose your law license, and are indicted, arrested and convicted..the Fed Pen food is quite good” @ Commiey
