DOJ Official Rachel Brand Resigns…

Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand is leaving the Department of Justice.  Ms. Brand was the #3 official in main justice holding a position immediately behind Rod Rosenstein.

Rachel Brand was to FISA surveillance what Tom Selleck is to reverse home mortgages. Indeed almost all of Ms. Brands’ exclusive recent responsibility has been to advocate for national surveillance authority within the DOJ.   She was a very effective spokesperson.

Ms. Brand is now going to be the legal head of Wal-Mart as the global governance director.

Good luck with that Wal-Mart workers.  Enjoy your future microchip. All your biometrics are belong to us…

      Rachel must have worked closely with Rosensteins wife to assist in stalling all those FOIA requests. No wonder Rosey thinks so highly of her.

        He is Brand’s boss but that’s like saying Walmart’s CEO is responsible for your local cashier. While true there are a lot of supervisors between the cashier & CEO so that means a lot of failure had to happen before it got that high up.

        Who below Sessions is dropping the ball & failing ?

      Doesn’t Brand ultimately answer to Sessions?

      Seems the Attorney General position is often defanged because people like Brand wield sole control over their areas. If these internal “bosses” operate independently, it’s no wonder we are in the messes we’re in, not just at DOJ, but also at State and FBI. In the private sector, every member of an organization is accountable and answers to someone. Even CEO’s answer to stockholders and boards of directors. Only in the gov’t can people embed like Brand, McCabe, Strzok, etc., and just do as they please. Or as they were told under prior administrations.

      If the Attorney General of the United States has no oversight or influence over the attorneys working inside DOJ, the Swamp apparently won’t be drained unless they start resigning. The President can’t fire any of them because Mueller stands as the firewall protecting them. To fire any of them would result in Mueller launching yet another tentacle of investigation, hire another far Left attorney to chase another avenue of Fake Obstruction. The Mueller gang reportedly is still trying to create an instruction case over Comey’s firing.

      Under the Obama Regime, Inspector General Horowitz was unable to access certain activities and functions inside the DOJ. The reasons why oversight was limited are glaringly apparent now. What’s not clear is why the people that are resigning think if they bail off the ship they’ll be exempt from scrutiny, investigation and whatever may follow after that.

      As for criticism of Jeff Sessions, its been President Trump himself that has publicly expressed disappointment and frustration. If our AG quietly doing great things toward draining the Swamp and weeding out the obstructors, we’ll all be grateful as will the President. In the meantime, our President is hamstrung–he can’t fire Rosenstein or Mueller and he couldn’t ask for Sessions’ resignation, even if he wanted to,

        One wonders whether she saw the proverbial handwriting on the wall: Rosenstein is going to go down; she will be next in charge if prosecutions are in order, and she does not want to be in that position. That could provoke a bail, even if she, herself, did not violate the law.

        The problem is that the government is so big, the man at the top can’t possibly know what the little guys are doing.

        Like the military, there is a chain of command. Military starts with a platoon Sgt. If there is a breakdown in the chain, the Post Commander doesn’t get the full picture of what his troops are doing.

        You have to depend on those in charge of Platoons to be the watchdog or the lazy corrupt soldier may go unnoticed by the higher ups.

      This is from the DoJ official site describing the function of the office of the Associate AG. No where do I see FOIA requests. From my reading, each division of the DoJ handles its appropriate FOIA requests.

      The Office of the Associate Attorney General advises and assists the Attorney General and the Deputy Attorney General in formulating and implementing Departmental policies and programs pertaining to a broad range of civil justice, federal and local law enforcement, and public safety matters. The Office oversees the following DOJ components: Antitrust Division, Civil Division, Civil Rights Division, Environment and Natural Resources Division, Tax Division, Office of Justice Programs, Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS), Community Relations Service, Office on Violence Against Women, Office of Information Policy, Executive Office for U.S. Trustees, Foreign Claims Settlement Commission, and the Service Members and Veterans Initiative.

        This is the official info w.r.t FOIA

        DOJ is organized into a number of bureaus, divisions, offices, and boards, which are referred to as “components.” Within DOJ, each component processes its own records in response to FOIA requests. Therefore, your request will receive the quickest possible response if it is addressed directly to the component that you believe has the records you are seeking. If you are unsure of which component would have the records you are seeking, you can read about each component and the types of records they maintain. Once you decide which component is likely to have the records you seek, you can view the list of FOIA contacts to get the address for that component’€™s FOIA office.

        Brand was no. 3 and there was expectations she would be a big contributor.
        But she was there for what, nine months?

        So people are saying she will need to lawyer up after being in the DOJ’s upper echelon for less than a year. Makes no sense whatsoever.

        If there’s movement with Rosenstein, DOJ no. 3 becomes a critical role. Brand probably isn’t the right choice. She knew it and knows what’s coming and left.

        We should say thank you. Not speculate about her arrest after nine months as No. 3 in DOJ. You would think it was Brand who begged Paul Ryan not to release the House Intel Memo.

        “In 2015, Brand expressed support for revised guidelines issued by Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, arguing that they represented a welcome shift in the intelligence community away from what she termed its historical “reflexive secrecy.”

        like i said – forced, CONSTANT exposure to images of these transvestite actors in the media on a regular basis,as politicians, Hollywood actors, and professional athletes, has unfortunately succeeded in selling people this baffling and disturbing narrative

      I am, however, disturbed by the bizarre globalist agenda of “identity” that is clearly accelerating, of attempting to deny biological hard fact (two sexes), and to normalize gender “choice” by flooding the media with this narrative…

      what they’re after is open to discussion, but i think it really important that we identify what is happening in front of us

        TruthplusTruth isn’t attacking Branch but rather pointing out a theory based on observation.

        Certainly TruthplusTruth risks offending Brand if turns out Brand is actually a biological female.

        I kind if thought that was the point if the Treehouse. To observe, think, and take risks calling it as one sees it. Not attack and namecall them like an SJW. For those that are “offended” at this non-PC line of thought – hey it’s “Caturday” over on the general daily thread!

            Progs cling to the herd no matter the truth.

            “Conservatives” is the group true critical thinkers fall into. Folks willing to seek the truth regardless if it’s painful.

            I think the Conservative Treehouse was setup as a refuge for this herd of patriots (of all nationalities) and free thinkers. Conflict and debate are healthy. Consensus of goal (MAGA) and morals (God and Country) is fine, but not consensus of thought by shutting down debate. Some here – the pro Session types come to mind – seem to forget that sometimes in their zeal and tell us to shutup we’re rocking the treehouse. Well, pretty sure that is what it was built for, it can take it.

              Agree that the CTH can handle the “rocking”- your Sessions example is dead on, In such a situation you are criticizing action/ lack of action (etcetera) which is fair and necessary.

            Bashing someone’s appearance is a typical tactic of the left and the left’s “groupthink” forte, not an “actual discussion” with any value to SD posting. Your opinion is yours, but the tactics you are using to excuse posting whatever comes to mind are the tactics of the left which attack a person rather than their actions.

            Iff the discussion was about transgender issues of some sort, then your comments on her appearance might be in keeping with the discussion.

            I have never been accused of “groupthink” in any environment. I, too have strong opinions but I don’t expect to use that as a right to say whatever I want in any and every situation. IMO you can rock the treehouse all you want, as @Aesop Shrugged said, but attacks on a person’s appearance have no merit in this discussion.

    Rachel Brand served as Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Policy in the George W. Bush administration and was appointed by President Barack Obama to serve on the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board. Brand was part of the legal team representing George W. Bush during the 2000 United States presidential election recount in Florida,[8] and also served briefly as associate counsel in Bush’s transition team.[5] Beginning in 2003,[5] she served as an Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Policy in the George W. Bush administration where she helped shepherd the Supreme Court nominations of John Roberts and Samuel Alito.[8] Brand’s portfolio also included shaping the administration’s position on reauthorization of the Patriot Act,[9] in which capacity she testified before the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary on the benefits of using administrative subpoenas in terrorism investigations.[10]
    During her tenure at the Justice Department, Brand was tangentially involved in the controversy surrounding Attorney General Alberto Gonzales’s dismissal of several United States Attorneys. She was floated by DOJ leadership as a top candidate to replace Margaret Chiara, who was ousted as part of the purge.[11] Brand ultimately declined the position, however, and resigned from the DOJ in June 2007.[12] In 2012, Brand was appointed by President Barack Obama to serve on the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board (PCLOB).[14] She was confirmed on August 2, 2012 to a term ending January 29, 2017.[15]
    Brand dissented from several recommendations included in the PCLOB’s 2014 report on NSA’s bulk metadata collection program under section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act. She declined to join in the Board’s view that the program was illegal as a statutory matter and argued that, in policy terms, it struck a justifiable balance between privacy and national security and, as such, should not be discontinued.[16] The Board, for its part, had recommended the program’s termination.[17]
