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.

      I too made the assumption that the quotes came from texts or other documents that had not been released to the public yet. We can safely assume there is a great deal of additional documentary evidence from the writings and communications of the myriad persons involved in the Clinton email investigation, and the investigation of FISA abuses. I also thought that Baker was out, not just reassigned. Its hard to believe that all 5 witnesses are cooperating and for me a bit disappointing because then what the heck is the punishment for the multi-years of illegal activity conspiring against political opponents.

    It might be better to let those who’ve cooperated be burned by their OIG testimony and just let that stand. Just refer them to DOJ for prosecution on criminal activites. Maybe that’s Nunes’ thinking or maybe not. Regardless, there are other dominoes yet to fall in this whole nasty business!

Perhaps there would be no need for a second special prosecutor as the evidence would be sufficient for the DOJ to move directly to indictments and grand juries. The cooperation of these five would also explain some of the behavior we’ve seen from Sessions, Wray and possibly Rosenstein.

      This fatal stupidity by the Congressional investigations needs to stop right now, this weakness will be the literal death of our country if they can’t stand like patriots, like men who gave us this country “if we could keep it”. Time to put on their big boy pants and do the work of a man!

        I’m not so sure it was a mistake. I think the Nunes memo was intended to be a light intro designed to get public interest up. Remember the Grassley/ Graham referral had already been sent, it just wasn’t public yet. The Dems reacted with utterly predictable wailing and gnashing of teeth and lies. Then the pre-existing G/G referral is partially declassified and backs up much of the Nunes memo. Meanwhile the Dems are stuck in a loop of ‘we said we were going to prove it was lies but now we can’t make those claims because Grassley pre-refuted them!’ There are already reporters that aren’t conservative who have noticed G/G’s less classified content. you can bet they’ll compare that to the Dem memo whenever it comes out, and I suspect that a couple will notice any inconsistencies.

          I hope you are right, but I fear the Democrats news reporters are so far committed to the Democratic talking points that they will twist the point to keep the Democrats in power . They have carried that water too long.

    If there is one takeaway from all this drama over the past year it’s that there is even more subterfuge and misdirection in real life DC politics than in Hollywood thrillers. And to think the left who worship the movie industry is missing the best cloak and dagger story in our lifetimes. Hilarious!

    If your hypothesis is correct, then these five, even the most senior, must have information sufficient to go up several levels. Otherwise just pull in the lowest level and squeeze them.

    Thank you so much, Sundance. Amazing work!
    i have two questions:
    First, does the fact that Susan Rice’s email was sent at 12:15PM on January 20, 2017, mean that she in essence threw Barack Obama under the bus?
    Second, can one assume that the “fab five” who are cooperating are ALSO under 24/7 armed guard and/or in the Witness Protection Program so the CLINTONMACHINE/DEEPSTATE Hit Unit doesn’t “correct the situation”?

    Does anyone know whether any of these DOJ/FBI witnesses were involved in the Uranium One investigation? I believe Rod Rosenstein was US Attorney in Maryland when the first indictment related to that was issued.

      There is a one hour clip of Dr. Jerome Corsi on YouTube going through the Uranium One saga. Mueller was FBI Director and Rosenstein was involved big time. The evidence of the Russian bribery was covered up so that the committee voting on it had no clue.

      Thank Bill Clinton for that, too. WJC and some big shot investor went to Kazakhstan and made a deal for their primo uranium. Mr. Putin gets ticked off to the max, which is why Russia went through all that trouble for getting control of that company. Putin knows that the Clinton’s are for sale to the highest bidder.

      I venture to say that if those Kazakhstan officials had not made that deal with those two, Vlad would not have bothered with America’s 20%. That just got included the way things played out. Can anyone fix me up with a meeting with him so that I can ask him myself?

    I’m going to the store now and double my supply of popcorn and get a third air popper. This is going to be good. I see a sick day coming the day this report hits the internet. Can’t wait to see what MSDNC, CNN et al have to say. Chris Mathews may break down on the air? Maddow may commit ritual Hari Kari live. This is going to be good!
