Someone’s Doing The DOJ and FBI Interrogations and It’s Not Congress…

On a Monday night (February 12th, 2018) episode of Tucker Carlson a Democrat member of the House Intelligence committee said something interesting that almost everyone missed.  Appearing on the show to joust with Tucker, HPSCI member Eric Swalwell stated: “the House Intel Committee has not interviewed a single witness in over a month”.  [Video Here, quote @03:47]  This statement is rather enlightening.

A month earlier, January 4th, 2018, an agreement was finally made between House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes and DOJ Asst. Attorney General Rod Rosenstein for complete disclosure of all unredacted documents AND a list of witnesses who Nunes wanted the HPSCI to question.

Included in those names was:  FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who exchanged anti-Trump text messages during an affair and previously worked on the special counsel’s Russia probe; FBI general counsel James Baker, who was reassigned; FBI head of counterintelligence Bill Priestap, whom ex-FBI boss James Comey testified made the decision not to brief Congress about the Russia case during last year’s election; and Bruce Ohr, a DOJ official reassigned after concealing meetings with figures involved in the dossier.

The January 4th agreement between Devin Nunes and Rod Rosenstein was made after a great deal of back-and-forth.  Chairman Nunes then documented the agreement in a letter.

On January 8th, Bruce Ohr was demoted for the second time.  [AND DOJ officials scheduled Bruce Ohr to be available to Devin Nunes on January 17th]

On January 9th, the DOJ provided the unredacted DOJ/FBI documents requested to Chairman Nunes; the documents the DOJ produced surrounded the Clinton-Steele Dossier and the FISA Title-1 application.   The documents were assigned to a SCIF in the basement of the House.  Those documents become the basis for Chairman Nunes to outline his memo; essentially a declassification request to the White House written by Trey Gowdy.

As a result of the agreement between Rod Rosenstein and Devin Nunes, one member from each side of the HPSCI aisle (one Democrat and one Republican) was permitted to review the original FISA application documents which included the Clinton-Steele dossier use therein.

Trey Gowdy and Adam Schiff were the two Intel committee members who reviewed. (Remember, this is January 9th, 2018)  [Only Gowdy, Schiff and House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte reviewed the original FISA documents]

A week later, January 16th, 2018, Chairman Nunes  postponed the witness interview with DOJ official Bruce Ohr scheduled for the next day, January 17th.

Instead, on January 18th, 2018, the HPSCI voted to allow all members of the House to review the Nunes-Gowdy Memo created after the DOJ provided the documents (January 9th).   [January 18th THROUGH February 2nd was #ReleaseTheMemo]

Now remember, throughout this time none of those prior agreed-upon FIVE witnesses (Strzok, Page, Priestap, Baker, Ohr) have been interviewed.  Everyone’s attention shifted from witness testimony to the Memo; and as Democrat Eric Swalwell stated, no witness was interviewed. Period. [<- key point].

So to summarize so far: during January all the DOJ documents arrived, the HPSCI (Nunes) memo was written, released, declassified and released to the public on February 2nd, 2018 but no witnesses testified.  [Nunes Memo – Link]

So the question becomes:

How does the exact testimony (including quotes) of Bruce Ohr, and Bill Priestap become part of the Nunes Memo if neither Bruce Ohr or Bill Priestap was ever interviewed by the House Intelligence Committee?

 

Who is doing the interrogations of Bill Priestap and Bruce Ohr?

It’s not the HPSCI.  It’s not the House Judiciary Committee and it’s not the Senate (Chuck Grassley).  [Remember Grassley is relying on responsive FD-302’s provided by the FBI.]

See where this is going?  DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz has interviewed these witnesses and extracted testimony.  Can you see now why Nunes was in ‘no hurry’ to interview the FIVE? (Strzok, Page, Ohr, Baker and Priestap).

Let me remind everyone that each of the aforementioned names is still within the system.  Unlike Mike Kortan, David Laufman, Sally Yates, James Rybicki or Andrew McCabe, none of the five (Strzok, Page, Ohr, Baker, Priestap) have been removed.  Peter Strzok is in FBI HR; Lisa Page is doing something; Bruce Ohr and James Baker are holding down chairs somewhere; and Bill Priestap is still Asst. FBI Director in charge of counterintelligence.

It doesn’t go unnoticed the media are transparently not following up on Peter, Lisa, Bruce Jim or Bill.  No satellite trucks in front of their houses etc.; no pounding on their doors for comment etc.  Nothing.

Further, ask yourself why Inspector General Michael Horowitz (or someone thereabouts) began to advance upon the entire ‘Trump operation’ with releases of Peter Strzok and Lisa Page text messages?  Why them? Surely, other collaborative communication was also captured, yet we only heard of Page and Strzok.  Why?

Here’s what is becoming transparently obvious.  The fab-five are cooperating with the investigative unit of the OIG.  All five of them.

The text message release was strategic.  It was intended to substantiate the entire enterprise, put the ‘small group on notice’ and flush out the co-conspirators.  The downstream exits of Kortan, Laufman, Rybicki, McCabe et al are evidence therein.

Additionally, the OIG  (Horowitz) would want to keep the testimony of Page, Strzok, Ohr, Baker and Priestap away from the Democrat politicians, well known leakers, within the House Intelligence Committee (ie. Eric Swalwell and Adam Schiff) until he was certain their usefulness as witnesses was exhausted.

The reason for this is transparently simple.  The OIG is a division inside the Department of Justice.  During an internal investigation if the IG becomes aware of unlawful activity he/she is obligated to inform the AG (Sessions) or AAG (Rosenstein).  He can’t ignore it and he cannot delay notification of it.  Unlawful activity must be reported.

The IG does not have legal or prosecutorial authority – the IG must immediately refer unlawful activity to the proper authority; essentially to his boss.  A DOJ prosecutor is then assigned to work with the IG and essentially creates a parallel investigation focused only on the law-breaking part. [That prosecutor could, likely would, then begin a Grand Jury proceeding; no-one outside the AG, AAG, and that prosecutor’s office would know.]

The prior testimony/statements to the IG by the fab-five would explain why AAG Rod Rosenstein was negotiating with Devin Nunes, and why Nunes came away from those negotiations with wind in his investigative sails.

The DOJ (Rod Rosenstein) needs to wall-off the politics (Devin Nunes) from the ongoing investigation (DOJ-OIG-Prosecutor) to preserve the integrity of his advancing and  assembling case (including witness testimony). Understanding this, after a review of the FISA documents – Nunes dropped/postponed his demand for immediate testimony by the fab-five to the HPSCI.  [A record is already established]

As a person familiar with such specific investigative measures recently shared:

“They are sat down, told to not do anything, say anything or discuss anything UNTIL they get an attorney. At which time, the attorney is handed a letter from the investigating unit. That letter says in essence, this is how screwed you are. If you want to be less screwed you will sign this letter of cooperation and assist us. When we don’t need you, you sit there. When we do we will call you and you will provide what we need. Any deviation from this agreement lands you in jail for the full term.”

Additionally regarding Bruce and Nellie Ohr:

“The Republican memo states they turned over all their work and testified to someone that Bruce Ohr met with Christopher Steele and Steele was saying he didn’t want Trump in office. They didn’t testify to a Congressional committee, so it had to be the IG.”

All of the news and information coming forward, including the withdrawal of the request for the Democrat memo, aligns with a very specific fact pattern.  Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, James Baker, Bill Priestap, Bruce Ohr and likely Nellie Ohr, have cut some kind of deal with the IG for process leniency in exchange for cooperation.

The Five have provided the IG and the DOJ with sworn statements and testimony which is highlighted in investigative communication between the DOJ and Chairman Nunes; and we see snippets surfacing in the Nunes memo.

That perspective explains everything seen and not seen.

It is very likely the final investigative summary from the Department of Justice, Office of Inspector General (DOJ-OIG), Michael Horowitz, is going to be rather stunning and encompassing:

This also puts the Susan Rice email to herself in a more encompassing light.

    BUSTED: DOJ Official Bruce Ohr Caught Hiding Wife’s Payments From Fusion GPS

      ““Payments from Fusion GPS to Bruce Ohr’s family, funded by the DNC, have the appearance of a ‘government for hire,’ i.e. bribing a DOJ official to push the case,” says the Daily Caller’s Luke Rosiak.

      Daily Caller has more:

      “The money sweetened the pot for the Ohrs, and it certainly made it easier for Fusion to get the dossier to be used before the court if they made that payment to Bruce Ohr’s wife,” former judge and Texas GOP Rep. Louie Gohmert told The Daily Caller News Foundation,

      “Fusion had to have known that because of the relationship between Bruce Ohr and his wife, they were bringing Fusion, the DOJ and the DNC together under one roof to work for the same goal, which was to stop Donald Trump from becoming president,” he said.

      “The financial arrangement between Mrs. Ohr and Fusion GPS gives the appearance of government-for-hire,” said Tom Anderson, an ethics expert at the conservative-leaning watchdog group the National Legal and Policy Center. It “appears to be a sophisticated scheme to get access to the highest levels of our government … ensuring the use of government resources in an attempt to influence an election.”

      Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said more attention should be paid to Bruce Ohr in relation to the dossier drama.

      “The fact that the Senate Intelligence Committee is bringing in Bruce Ohr, this Justice Department official involved with Fusion GPS and the Clinton dossier, shows you where the collusion scandal is,” Fitton told OANN‘s John Hines last December.

      “It’s with the Clinton campaign, the DNC, the FBI, the Justice Department,” said Fitton before asking, “how did they use this dossier?”

      “How did they use this dossier? Was Mueller using this dossier? Was it used to justify to a court to get warrants to spy on Trump and his team?”

      “That’s the collusion,” added Fitton.

      “Bruce Ohr is the first indication that we have that the Justice Department was involved in this dossier that’s been so controversial.”

          Most of the general public don’t understand that a warrant on Page was essentially a warrant on the administration, and many others. There is seemingly no limit to what that warrant allowed. This is the message that needs to get out to the public.

          That is a very good question. Here’s my take: I believe it is a crime. It appears that an unsubstantiated and libelous document was used, by high ranking government officials, to gain a surveillance warrant on an individual in order to surveil another individual, who in reality was the target in the first place. Their intent was to influence a presidential election and install a chosen candidate. Thank god they failed. This failure resulted in the insurance phase of the plan, which was to use the false and salacious document along with illegally gained intelligence, which basically destroyed the lives of three innocent bystanders, to unseat a duly elected president. This is the definition of an attempted coup d’état, which is a treasonous act.

      Strzok was in charge of the PARM – a program initiated to catch problematic and criminal associations of FBI agents. Strzok and PARM should have snagged McCabe’s Russian associations, especially Deripaska. Many agents were fired for far less, under the stringent internal program. Where was Strzok’s oversight of McCabe or did Strzok simply look the other way?

    Yes, clearly, someone is doing the questioning and it is not Congress.

    This quote from the Nunes memo suggests that:

    “After Steele was terminated, a source validation report conducted by an independent unit within FBI Assessed Steele’s reporting as only minimally corroborated.”

    The key word in this quote is “INDEPENDENT UNIT.” That “independent unit WITHIN FBI” must be the IG’s dedicated team of investigators.

    “…in official FBI files”
    “Ohr later provided the FBI” with Nellie’s oppo research
    “After Steele was terminated a source validation report conducted by AN INDEPENDENT UNIT within the FBI…”

    2) Then SD says when crimes are discovered by OIG, a DOJ prosecutor is assigned to work with OIG (likely leading to Grand Jury)

      What Justice and Punishment was in ‘Midieval Times’, 1700’s would work fine.

      Since High Treason was, and arguably remains, the most serious capital crime, testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act was required to convict, and the punishment in the Eighteenth century was severe. Blackstone states that “the punishment of high treason in general is very solemn and terrible”:

      1. That the offender be drawn to the gallows, and not be carried or walk: though usually (by connivance length ripened by humanity into law) a sledge or hurdle is allowed, to preserve the offender from the extreme torment of being dragged on the ground or pavement
      2. That he be hanged by the neck and then cut down alive
      3. That his entrails be taken out and burned, while he is yet alive
      4. That his head be cut off
      5. That his body be divided in four parts
      6. That his head and quarters be at the king’s disposal

      But just like a TV Infromercial – WAIT, THERE’S MORE

      The punishment did not end with the personal suffering of the offender; the punishment extended to his or her family. The law states that a person who is found guilty of treason must also undergo “forfeiture” and “corruption of blood.” In forfeiture, the person is forced to give all their lands and property to the state. Corruption of blood prevents the person’s immediate family and hereditary heirs from owning property or conducting business– in effect ruining the offender’s family forever.

      But the punishment of treasonous women is similar, yet different from men. “For as the decency due to the sex forbids the exposing and publicly mangling their bodies, their sentence (which it to the full as terrible to sensation as the other) is to be drawn to the gallows, and there to be burned alive”

      Worrisome to me are the allegations of whistleblower Dennis Montgomery, that the FBI has been for years, spying and has dirt on, or has been PLANTING dirt on, 156 judges, including the Chief Justice of SCOTUS, and dozens of congressmen. Montgomery’s accusations seem ALMOST unbelievable, but I can’t get past the notion that if true, they would explain a lot with regard to the inexplicable slobbering over Mueller, the purported “paragon of integrity!”, who signed on lead an investigation notwithstanding clear conflicts of interest, Roberts’ eleventh hour about face on the ACA, not to mention the slew of recent surprising congressional resignations/decisions not to run for re-election. Specifically referenced in one of the pleadings I saw in that case were the allegations by former CBS reporter Cheryl Atkinson, that someone had hacked into her computer and planted classified information. And whatever happened to the accusations from Senator Rand Paul, that he was being spied on by the FBI?

      The problem is that going forward there are still a lot of powerful people with, presumably, a lot on the line. For example, stunningly, the judge in the Dennis Montgomery suit, who has previously ruled against the illegal spying activities of the NSA, now inexplicably refuses to rule on Montgomery’s petition, contrary to statements early on in the case that he would issue a ruling in weeks. It’s been over seven months now and Montgomery’s lawyer Larry Klayman (who is also a co-plaintiff), who originally fought to keep Leon on as the judge, on February 12, 2018, informed the court that he will be asking the appellate court to mandate Leon to get off his a$$ and rule. He is also asking Judge Leon to disclose whether he has been contacted in any way since the outset of the case, by anyone at the FBI, suggesting that now Leon is – like other members of the DC trial court and its administration – also compromised. Unbelievable.

      I sometimes think this thing will end the way the movie LA Confidential ended. Give the public enough to satisfy, and what they think we can “handle,” but keep the whole ugly truth under wraps. If what Montgomery says is true the problem isn’t just election rigging, the problem is we’ve been living in a police state for a number of years. Dozens of legal decisions, including Roberts’ ACA opinion, are likely invalid. House and Senate votes too. I just don’t see them going all the way there.

    It would be interesting to know whether anyone has worn a wire, whether any wiretaps have been authorized and whether any search warrants have been executed.

    I anticipate that a lot of US Attorneys and their assistants, and a lot of FBI Special Agents and SACs, are disgusted with the politicization of their agencies by their Washington, D. C. hierarchies.

    I certainly would be.

    The criminal complicity of the highest levels of the DOJ and the FBI will create immense will present huge prosecutorial and investigatory challenges to their attorneys and agents in the field for years to come, as was the case with the FBI lab failures 20-25 years ago.

    Their people in the field are probably furious at these politicized jackals in DC at this very moment.

    In fact, the FBI has historically move its SAs around to different cities every few years to minimize the risk of their becoming too tight with local law enforcement and pols, some of whom the have to investigate from time to time.

    This could turn out bad for Mueller, the way I see this now.

      hope there is at least one person accused by mueller desperate enough to call into question mueller’s competence/honesty by reference to mueller’s wildly corrupt investigation of 9-11, the fountainhead of our recent calamity, though this profound undercutting of the credibility of the deep state and its media is very positive for truthers generally.

    Interesting hypothesis that ‘The Five’ have flipped, but isn’t it also possible that even without formal Committee interviews, they have been extensively interviewed by Committee(s) staff? I believe that is SOP for Congressional hearings.

    I’m liking this 18th Century penalty phase for any trials….
    Only “requires” 2 men to testify….(18th Cent – note the absence of “women” anywhere – except as a defendant…).
    There’s another “old book” that should be consulted: “Rocks and sholes” in which i think you find the practice of “keelhauling” outlined and assigned for certain crimes.
    Keep digging: there be gold in them-there reports! Check-6

    What the Fab Five are doing right now, when they’re not actively working with the OIG, is awaiting sentencing.

    Some or all of them will do time, and the ones who didn’t cooperate will do more time.

    The notion that these prosecutorial atrocities doesn’t impugn the Mueller prosecution and investigation is also outlandish.

    He has probably given testimony to the OIG on this matter at some point over the course of the last year, and he will likely be a witness in the prosecution of the participants who didn’t decide to start singing to the OIG.

    These people are the small fish…. Mafia soldiers so to speak.

    We want the Capos…. and specially, the Capo di tutti Capi.

    Holder, Lynch, Jarret, Hillary, Huma, Clapper, Comey… and naturally Obola The Magnificent.

    The soldiers give up their cushy pension and spend only a few years in jail. The Capos spend the rest of their lives in jail, including the whole Clinton Foundation Cabal.

    I figure Obola will get a pardon but not without some serious terms…. remember, in order to get a pardon he must agree to a guilty plea or be found guilty in a trial. I don’t think seeing an ex-president on trial is good for the country… HIllary, OTOH, will be a catharsis.

    Naturally, we also want to see Lerner and that IRS scandal fully investigated!

    And Benghazi…

    And Uranium One…

    The word is deterrence. The individual people and their fate may indeed be sad and tragic, but they are insignificant in comparison to the crimes they committed and the purposes of law enforcement. The arrogance of authority and the casual nature of the “Go along to get along attitude” allowed government malfeasance to threaten the very republic. Deterrence has to be the primary objective else tomorrow’s memory will be short lived.

    The weakening and ultimate collapse of this republic suits some just fine, but it is not who we are. Nor should it define what we are all about. We are in the business of restoring the republic.

    You all are most likely correct in the IG Horowitz theory.
    However (y’all knew this was coming, yes?)
    A case could be made that a good part of this investigation is coming from the FBI itself.

    In the Carlson clip, Swalwell states that the HPSCI has interviewed no one for a month. At 05:54 Swalwell states “we are not interviewing witnesses.” Yet today we hear Bannon is being interviewed by the HPSCI. Was Swalwell lying?
    You all might guess my opinion re: Swalwell lying.

    In the Carlson clip, Swalwell states at least three times of Swalwell’s faith in the fairness, judgement, and strict adherence to the rule of law of the FBI, the DOJ, and “the process,” as have nearly every other FBI/DOJ member and Democrat, past and present. Review the tweets included in the first link referenced below.

    Further, faith in the fairness, judgement, and strict adherence to the rule of law of the FBI, the DOJ, and “the process” has been AG Jeff’s mission since assuming the office of Attorney General.
    “My job is to restore confidence in the Department of Justice in all aspects of our work and I intend to do so. As such, I have directed that the FBI Director…promptly make any necessary changes to his management and investigative teams…”
    ~ Attorney General Jeff Sessions
    https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2017/12/03/attorney-general-jeff-sessions-fbi-spox-and-office-of-doj-inspector-general-release-statements/

    AG Jeff has been touring the country, visiting local FBI, DOJ, and LEO offices, attempting to restore faith and confidence in themselves and the D.C. FBI/DOJ branches. Check several of my last comments re: AG Jeff. Yes, count me as an original detractor of AG Jeff. Facts intrude upon opinions.

    Item 03 from this post, above, “Shortly after the election, the FBI began interviewing Ohr, documenting his communications with Steele…in September 2016, Steele admitted to Ohr his feelings about then-candidate Trump…” This was before the IG investgation ever started. Why was the FBI interviewing Ohr?

    Even as far back as 5 July 2016 Comey was blaming the DOJ for the basis of Comey’s decision not to prosecute Clinton – “no reasonable prosector” = there are unreasonable prosecutors. Reversing words/speech and blaming others is how they play.

    In one of Devin Nunes’ early letters to DAG Rosenstein, Nunes stated that the FBI should be investigating itself.

    A good case can be made that the FBI actually is investigating itself.
    What better way to restore the public’s and LEO community’s faith in the FBI/DOJ than to have the FBI/DOJ investigate and prosecute themselves?

    An added benefit is hanging the Democrats on their own words/tweets proclaiming that the total fairness and dedication to the rule of law of the FBI/DOJ is above reproach.

    Sundance, I envy your mind. How you can keep all this information together is truly a miracle. No one has done the work you have with such precision. I may have missed it, but did the judges at FISC read all the paperwork that was submitted those four times? Did they all read the dossier? If they did, IMO, they are all corrupt because anyone who reads that dossier could NEVER believe it was true. Not only was it poorly written, the accusations against POTUS were ludicrous. Is it possible they knew the information was bogus, and they decided to go with it anyway, believing Hillary would win and no one would be the wiser? Anything to help Hillary win.
