Attorney General Jeff Sessions Confirms Prior Appointment of “DOJ Prosecutor” to Parallel IG Horowitz, NOT a Special Counsel…

There has been a great deal of consternation, directed toward AG Jeff Sessions surrounding the ongoing FISA abuse scandal and the larger issues of unlawful DOJ and FBI conduct in their political investigation of candidate Donald Trump.  It is a matter of great division amid people who follow the details.

That said, AG Jeff Sessions revealed tonight in an interview with Shannon Bream, that he previously appointed a DOJ official to investigate the issues delivered by Chairman Bob Goodlatte (House Judiciary), prior to receiving the request for a Special Counsel from Chairman Goodlatte and Trey Gowdy.  WATCH:

.

Transcript @00:15 (emphasis mine) “Well, I have great respect for Mr. Gowdy and Chairman Goodlatte, and we are going to consider seriously their recommendations. I have appointed a person outside of Washington, many years in the Department of Justice to look at all the allegations that the House Judiciary Committee members sent to us; and we’re conducting that investigation.

Also I am well aware we have a responsibility to insure the integrity of the FISA process, we’re not afraid to look at that. The inspector general, some think that our inspector general is not very strong; but he has almost 500 employers, employees, most of which are lawyers and prosecutors; and they are looking at the FISA process. We must make sure that it’s done properly, and we’re going to do that. And I’ll consider their request.”

Well, there you have it.  There is already an appointed person, likely a prosecutor, from “outside of Washington”, in place prior to the recent request for a Special Counsel by Goodlatte and Gowdy.   That was exactly what an objective analysis of the events previously outlined – and we previously noted.

Attorney Jeff Sessions is noting the existence of an outside prosecutor who has been in place for quite a while, exactly as we thought.  All the evidence of this was/is clear if you follow the granular details closely.   Here’s how we figure it out; and also the reason why no-one in Washington DC -including congress and the president- was previously aware.

…”to look at all the allegations that the House Judiciary Committee sent to us” – HERE is an Example.  And here is a response:

♦#1) The DOJ Inspector General (Michael Horowitz) has an obligation to notify his superiors when he/she discovers illegal activity, or conduct that is likely unlawful, while conducting an internal investigation.  The IG cannot sit on knowledge or evidence of likely criminal conduct, just because he/she is conducting an investigation.  This is the same reason why IG Horowitz had to inform Special Counsel Robert Mueller in July of 2017 of the potentially unlawful conduct of members on his team (Lisa Page and Peter Strzok).

♦#2) The same people under investigation within the IG purview (FBI and DOJ officials) are transparently cooperating with the Inspector General.  That cooperation, in combination with a likelihood of unlawful conduct, would require a DOJ official (prosecutor) to be assigned to negotiate and outline the DOJ legal terms of investigative compliance.  The person negotiating the terms for cooperation would NOT be the Inspector General; because of the potential for criminal charges related to the investigated individuals, it would be the job of a DOJ career prosecutor to comply with legal needs.

♦#3) Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Bruce and Nellie Ohr and Bill Priestap have quotes inside the HPSCI memos.  Those quotes come from investigative interviews; no congressional committee has interviewed those persons.  Those would be a few of the people in #2 above; and their testimony to Horowitz and a DOJ Prosecutor, would make them witnesses in a criminal investigation.  That explains why they have not given interviews to congressional committees.  The DOJ needs to keep the integrity of their testimony inside the investigative unit. (ie. in the control of the DOJ official from outside Washington that Jeff Sessions notes).

♦#4) President Trump is the chief executive over the DOJ and FBI; however, in this odd dynamic he is also the victim within the conspiracy as potentially outlined by the investigation.  Therefore, again to protect the integrity of the investigation and witness testimony, the victim would be kept at arms length and not informed of the criminal investigation.  That’s why POTUS Trump doesn’t know; and AG Sessions must keep distance from any discussion with the executive due to this separation.

♦#5) Cooperating witness testimony in a criminal investigation also means congress would not know of the details.  Congress (Nunes, Gowdy and Goodlatte) wouldn’t even know a criminal investigation was opened.  The prosecutor works parallel with, but separate from, the IG investigation.  Congress would know of the IG, but not the prosecutor.  This interview by AG Sessions is the first indication congress would have of a DOJ official already looking at the criminal issues.

♦#6) And the most transparent reason why we know there’s a DOJ prosecutor already on the case is because Jeff Sessions just said there was.

Additionally on February 27th, 2018, Attorney General Jeff Sessions held a press briefing to announce the opioid task force (video below).  During the Q&A segment of the presser, Fox News Catherine Herridge asked AG Sessions if the FISA court abuses outlined by Chairman Devin Nunes, Chairman Bob Goodlatte and Chairman Chuck Grassley would be investigated by the DOJ.

Attorney General Sessions affirms the FISA court abuse by the DOJ and FBI will indeed be investigated and prosecuted and directed attention to Inspector General Michael Horowitz. [watch at 37:57 of video – prompted]

.

This February 27th mention by AG Jeff Sessions WAS NOT NEWS.

This earlier admission is exactly what those who have followed closely will note has seemed to be the direction since mid-year 2017.   As AG Sessions affirms, IG Horowitz is NOT limited in scope.  Horowitz is investigating *all* avenues of politicization within the DOJ and FBI and abuse therein; this includes FISA abuse.   Add this to General Sessions’ answer today about the appointment of a DOJ official from outside Washington, and you can clearly see the IG and appointed prosecutor have been working together for quite some time.

How long?

Likely since the time when IG Horowitz informed the AG and AAG that he may have discovered significant evidence of unlawful conduct within the DOJ and FBI.  That would be around July/August 2017.

More visibility of the prosecutor is clear within the timeline:

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, Ratcliffe 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?  The investigative unit of the IG is providing congress with transcripts of testimony from IG investigators (DOJ and FBI employees within the OIG); with the review, control and approval of the DOJ outside prosecutor.

DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz has interviewed these witnesses, likely with his appointed DOJ prosecutor, and extracted testimony.  This explains why Devin Nunes changed his approach after discussion with AAG Rod Rosenstein and was no longer in a 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 (as Jeff Sessions confirmed today) and essentially creates a parallel investigation focused only on the law-breaking part.

[That prosecutor could, likely would, then begin a Grand Jury proceeding; and no-one outside the AG, AAG, and the ‘outside’ 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; would explain why Rosenstein was reluctant to allow testimony; and would also explain why Nunes came away from those negotiations with wind in his investigative sails.

The DOJ (Rod Rosenstein) needs to wall-off the politics (Nunes/Congress) from the ongoing criminal investigation (DOJ-OIG-Prosecutor) to preserve the integrity of his advancing and assembling case (including criminal witness testimony).

As soon as he understood this was going on, and after a review of the FISA documents – Nunes dropped his demand for immediate testimony by the fab-five to the HPSCI mid-January.  [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.”

The already existing “outside DOJ official” outlined by AG Sessions, is the person who would be constructing the witness agreements with approval of his DOJ bosses, Rosenstein and Sessions.

All of the news and information coming forward, including the lack of follow-up attention by the Democrats regarding the minority HPSCI memo, aligns with a very specific set of facts.  Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, James Baker, Bill Priestap, Bruce Ohr and likely Nellie Ohr, have cut some kind of deal with the outside prosecutor for process leniency in exchange for cooperation with the IG and DOJ prosecutor.

Thereby the Fab-Five have provided the IG investigative team and the DOJ prosecutor 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 likely the final investigative summary from the Department of Justice, Office of Inspector General (DOJ-OIG), Michael Horowitz, is going to be very encompassing.  It is also likely to be immediately followed-up by actions, perhaps immediate indictments, from the DOJ Prosecutor who Jeff Sessions brought in from outside Washington.

There is no need for a “Special Counsel” when a DOJ Prosecutor is already working with IG Horowitz.  The “outside prosecutor” can begin issuing subpoenas for Grand Jury testimony and statements by the officials no longer within the DOJ/FBI, just as soon as the IG report is finished.

      I’m not a fan of a special counsel. I’d much rather have an investigation done in the sunlight. But, in this case, I think this is perfect. Sessions has taken the politics completely out of the investigation because no one knows who it is.

            And in line with the OP, it also makes sense that a person with prosecutorial powers would be provided to work in parallel with Horowitz, rather than work the usual sequential/series scheduling.

              It has also occurred to me that the calls by the committees and members of congress were a vehicle to force Sessions to make the announcement or to give that appearance.

                The “release” is a bit coy. It depends on massive inference, and to the extent the press is interested, will cause that much speculation. see remarks here for a picture of that, “Inside DOJ? SC? Who is it? When were they appointed? What is their charter/scope?”
                If the press doesn’t pick up on it, I figure the remark will fade until the next time. And the next time may be a combination of announcing SC and indictments.

      All indications are that was a tragic domestic dispute–they were finalizing a divorce, they met and the murder/suicide occurred at their former marital home. Worse, there are reportedly children, though no indication I saw of ages, so they may be independent. That kind of thing is just plain tragic, no matter who they were.

      As to the “Fab 5”, they’re on their own and they get what they get. They engaged in seditious conspiracy against US, so a firing squad would be appropriate, but for the unnecessary expense and noise. Gallows or jail will have to do.

      Jello 333, I hope and think ( not always a great combination for accuracy) that you are correct – from the post…

      ” As AG Sessions affirms, IG Horowitz is NOT limited in scope. Horowitz is investigating *all* avenues of politicization within the DOJ and FBI and abuse therein; this includes FISA abuse” …

      so YES!!! the 1.2 MILLION pages likely covers massive internal crimes of obstruction regarding the HRC investigation, pay to play HRC games including Uranium 1,
      and likely Obama – Holder DOJ crimes possibly including fast and furious ( recent reports about that) the Anwan brothers, Bengazi, etc…!!!

      Indeed, the FISA abuse thread once pulled, weaves throughout the entire Obama administration.

      I have wavered on the entire Jeff Sessions – swamp creature or not controversy, since I started reading here several months ago. This post finally clicks for me to move strongly ( 85% or so) into the pro Jeff Sessions camp.

      Being a jaded veteran of the CAGW wars, it is easy to be skeptical of reason and justice prevailing, but in the scenario outlined by this post, hope is strongly allied with objective evidence.

      All the self-proclaimed crow eaters will renege on their promise just like the libs reneged on moving to Canada. They’ll either continue complaining that Sessions didn’t move fast enough for their liking, or he is indicting the wrong person, or they’ll simply move their brand of trollism to another target. “Fire Betsy Devos …” “Get Ben Carson outta …”

      They have no ability to discern how Sessions must revamp a weaponized department and institute protocols of impartiality, honesty and adherence to their oaths in a severly compromised bureaucracy. A bireaucracy whose mission was totally revamped by the Obama/Holder cabal. If a biased, weaponized Holder 2.0 is what they want Sessions to be, they will indeed be disappointed. That has proven as harmful as any specious plan ever fed into our 3 branches of government.

      Whatevah.

      Jeff Sessions was doing his job BEFORE today, and he’ll be doing it for at least 3 more years. When the dust settles, MS13 will have been significantly routed from our country; reforms to allow swifter deportation will have been established & utilized; sanctuary cities will be snuffed; FISA court will have been scrutinized & revamped; RICO & financial crimes will be utilized to indict conspirators, and enforcing laws will be the norm. Oh yeah; might even be a few white collar criminals serving time.

        It can take several years for “white collar” crimes to be investigated and assemble what one would call an “airtight case” – those crimes, by their very nature, are the most difficult to prosecute successfully. Taking out only one or two of the low-hanging fruit doesn’t get the results we need.

        Larry Schweikart mentioned Robert Hanssen the other day in a tweet – the infamous FBI spy who was active for 20 years, but it still took two years to get the “goods” on him. There had been signals to the FBI during that 20 year period – but not investigated. The FBI knew it had a “mole” for several years, but Hanssen wasn’t seriously on their radar until two years before his arrest! It’s shocking to realize how long it takes to get a case right.

        I went and reviewed Hassen’s story. It’s an espionage horror story…

    This scenario goes a long way towards explaining to me why Rosenstein signed that one renewal for the FISA warrant on Carter Page.

    Up until June/July of 2017, Rosenstein had no choice but to continue authorizing all warrants encompassing the Russia investigation due to Mueller’s probe.

    Then Rod had a meeting with Horowitz, et. al.
    Poof!!… No more FISA warrant on Page.

    The puzzle is slowly taking shape, patience everyone, patience.

    Wait to see what happens after the OIG report is released, then make a better informed opinion of what has really been going on behind the curtain over the last year.

        I’m implying no such thing.
        All I’m doing is attempting to put a puzzle together, just as SD is doing.

        I still have a big question mark, in my mind, about Rosenstein’s true agenda. His starting the Mueller probe and signing very problematic FISA warrants concerns me more than anything else. But I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt until further information is available.

        My supposition is that Horowitz had briefed Rosenstein around early summer of 2017 about criminality he’d found since his investigation began in December of 2016, a sixth month “progress report” as it were. Upon receiving this information, Rosenstein stopped the warrant on Carter Page (we have heard of no FISA renewals past that time).

        I am looking at information, and actions taken because of that information, establishing a timeline, and fitting logical pieces together to complete the puzzle.

        As for Horowitz…
        If he was truly “bad news” as you suggest, then none of us would have ever heard of him, or his investigation. The very fact that the IG is conducting this explosive investigation is enough of a reason for me to give him the benefit of the doubt and credit for taking on a task that a lesser man would’ve passed on and, instead, retired from his position and went on to a much less stressful civilian job.

        I’m waiting until the OIG report and subsequent actions (or no actions) by the players involved to make further judgments.
        Patience.

    I’m so happy that AG Sessions has CONFIRMED the assignment of a “outside” prosecutor. As Sundance noted, the IG only has authority to question current FBI and DOJ employees, but a prosecutor can subpoena all those who have previously made their exits. THAT was worrying me, thinking the IG’s report would be damning, but serve up no punishment for the guilty—especially Comey and McCabe. Now I’m thinking Comey should be lawyering up instead of scheduling interviews with idiots like Colbert, and McCabe should start counting up his assets because lawyers are expensive!

    When AG Sessions recused himself in the beginning, I remember reading here or somewhere that Sessions and Trump could not talk to each other because of the investigation of Trump. If they did, it would invalidate the investigation Sessions was doing. The only way they could communicate is when President Trump tweeted things. Any direct, private contact between the two was forbidden.
    I realized how much Sessions and Trump must trust each other and how difficult for both of them this process must have been. I remembered what happened to Steve Scalise and am very grateful he has survived and recovered. They knew what they were getting into. Draining the Swamp is nasty and dangerous business. I knew that what happened to Scalise was intended to warn them to stop coming after the swamp creatures or they would be killed also.
    I totally respected the fact that they continued going after the Deep State and have not backed off at all.
    There have been many attacks that were thwarted by the Grace of God and I know that all of our prayers for their protection have made a difference in the outcome.
    The Amtrak train wreck that could have killed so many Republican Congressmen was a huge warning to them all to back off or be killed. Instead of the desired effect, the Republicans were not seriously injured. They actually banded more tightly together and have been accomplishing a lot more since then.
    I know that all of them believed that President Trump would be killed or neutered and that they would have to continue to do business in the swamp as usual so they were just trying to stay out of trouble.
    As things have progressed and President Trump is still alive and still fighting every day and winning, the timid creatures have gotten braver and are beginning to enjoy winning some battles they never dreamed they could win.
    I am so glad AG Sessions finally got to say what he has been doing. He has had to take a lot of abuse and keep his mouth shut. He is looking a lot happier. I have read that there are around 18,000 sealed indictments. I assume they are for the drug traffickers and human traffickers. They will be taken to regular courts I believe.
    Guantanamo will be reserved for the politicians and the others who have committed treason along with them. They cannot be tried in regular courts because they could just bribe and blackmail their way out of it as they have done for decades. They will be subject to the Military Tribunals and locked up or executed.
    I have learned so much from sundance and the comments section on TCH. As President Trump says, “It’s complicated business”. It has been nice to have such excellent guidance through this process.
    God Bless President Trump for taking the leadership in this war.
    God Bless and protect us one and all as we face the battles and move on to victory.
    We still have a long way to go.
    We are winning.

We have a right to know what our government is doing so we can judge whether the right steps are being taken. Sessions is too cagey and not forthcoming enough for me. I lost confidence in him when he recused himself without consulting Trump and when he,stonewalled Nunes’ committees to the point where he had to be threatened with contempt.

          Actually, nothing entitles us to know anything regarding an ongoing investigation. It isn’t the “public’s right to know” – as much as you might desire such. If you were a prosecutor, heck even the one being prosecuted, do you think headlines plastered across the media would help or hinder said investigation? We don’t want to tip off all the fish to be netted, nor taint the jury pool. It’s called prosecutorial misconduct to “try” a case in the court of public opinion. Our feelings are one thing, the Law is something else.

          There’s a lot of hubris in your comments regarding this. Be a Doubting Thomas, but I wouldn’t presume to rewrite our laws and how they’re supposed to work. That’s what Lefties do. Even in a libertarian world, there has to be order to the universe or all is chaos.

          In fact, once the floodgates open, it will be much better for most of the ongoing investigations to be behind the scenes. Fatigue sets in, enabling too much and too many to slip through the cracks.

Rosenstein signed a false application for a warrant — has Sessions suspended him? In just the past two weeks, we’ve had countless leaks/rumors that Ivanka, the guy from UAE, and Kushner are being investigated by Mueller. These leaks could only have come from Sessions’ DOJ. Everyone, including Sessions, knows there was no collusion, so when is he going to shut down Mueller?

    • I don’t think you need a Special Counsel in this case simply because it’s highly likely the IG and DOJ prosecutor have multiple first-hand witnesses that have complied. That is more than enough to start filing sealed indictments and then on to a grand jury to compel further witnesses.

      The question that was asked by Sundance in his piece (and that has always kept me convinced a lot more was going on behind the scenes) were the Strzok and Page texts being released. Why would the IG want to embarrass them out of thin air? What exactly have we seen/heard that incriminates Lisa Page to date? (maybe some leaking, that’s about it though) Why haven’t we heard from either of them (or legal reps) defending the texts? The only defense has been from MSM/Dems calling them misunderstood/good agents, everyone in DC has surely figured out by now they are complying with the investigation.

    1) There are dozens and probably hundreds of US Attorneys AND Assistant US Attorneys in the hinterlands who have the experience, integrity, determination AND skill to drain the swamp.

    2) All Sessions needed to do was to ask Republican lawyers who practice in the federal courts who in their district are the good, reliable prosecutors. Many prosecutors would consider it an honor and a duty to help drain the swamp, and would be willing to give up 5 years of their lives to do so even if it means danger and moving to DC.

    3) The “outside” person is missing in action somewhere, as (probably) are a number of other prosecutors chosen to assist. Those “missing in action” have been noticed by the folks who practice in their district, and it is somewhat surprising their absence has not made news in some form. Just guessing, but their absence was explained in some convincing fashion intended to maintain secrecy.

    4) The goal is to present a fait accompli to the bad guys. In no small part will be charges of felony leaking which have been minutely and conclusively documented, detail by detail, so the bad guy KNOWS he is nailed on a felony charge with no possible defense. These leaking charges (I speculate) will be the barrel over which many will be rolled.

    5) The ultimate bad guys are Hillary and BO, who have insulated themselves over and over. But there will be gaps they did not anticipate, mainly the testimony of people they NEVER thought would roll.

    6) Hillary in particular might be offered a “truth and reconciliation” deal, where she stays out of prison if she discloses ALL of her corruption. This would be totally acceptable to me; actually preferable to me because the consequences would be far more profound than her mere incarceration.

        There is an interesting press release from yesterday that shows what these US Attorneys can do. This is out of Northern CA & the US Attorney is Alex G. Tse

        The prosecution is the result of an investigation by the FBI and the Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General.

        “Wertkin abused his position for personal gain and violated the nation’s trust. The DOJ-OIG will continue to work tirelessly with its partners at the FBI and the U.S. Attorney’s Offices to ferret out corruption and hold accountable those who engage in theft and obstruction of justice,” stated DOJ-OIG Fraud Detection Office Special Agent in Charge Lewe F. Sessions.”

      I would accept the “truth and reconciliation” deal if the Clinton Foundation has to turn over all their illegally obtained assets to the Feds, who can use them to prosecute more Swampers.

      She and her grifter husband should be left with the same net worth they had on the day before they entered politics.

      And the same for Chelsea. Don’t leave any opportunity to shelter assets with her.

      And Hillary should also be required to name all her co-conspirators and testify truthfully (I know that’s a stretch) against them.

      “Hillary in particular might be offered a “truth and reconciliation” deal, where she stays out of prison if she discloses ALL of her corruption. This would be totally acceptable to me; actually preferable to me because the consequences would be far more profound than her mere incarceration.”

      Perhaps.. but I really want to see her go to jail…..I believe the depth of her criminality is so deep it demands it.

    It’s great that Sundance keeps all the back articles. When you click on “ exactly as we thought” Sundance states:

    “ As AG Sessions affirms, IG Horowitz is NOT limited in scope. Horowitz is investigating *all* avenues of politicization within the DOJ and FBI and abuse therein; this includes FISA abuse.”

    We now know per Goodlatte and Gowdy letter the IG can’t investigate “all avenues” Sessions lied. Sessions does not want a special counsel like Sundance and others have been requesting. Goodlatte and Gowdy demanded it pointing out the IG lie sessions made. Now suddenly there’s a new person- but Sessions doesn’t know the scope and is still considering the special counsel request.

    Sessions did not clear up his lie in the Fox interview last night. There can’t be a full investigation “ all avenues” going on all this time either as Session led everyone to believe. And Sessions admitted he’s doesnt know if the sudden new person has that authority. We still aren’t getting a straight answer- sessions lied and is being deceptive here.

      I would feel a whole lot more confident if I knew that Sessions picked the 2nd DOJ prosecutor/ investigator. Is it possible, Rod Rosenstein handled that due to Sessions recusal? Could Sessions be saying “I’ve” been looking at that, when he means “I am aware of an outside DOJ investigator” having been assigned.

        The outside person only came up after Gowdy and Goodlatte letter came out. Prior to that Sessions, as Sundance points out, “affirmed” the IG was fully investigating. We now know that Sessions intentionally lied. Sessions still isn’t giving a straight answer. There is no excuse for a direct brazen lie Sessions made on the public record. Goodlatte and Gowdy had enough integrityto not go along with this brazen lie by not speaking up. Sessions didn’t bother to clear things up in the interview last night.

        So why is Sessions continuing to obfuscate and deceive? Why is Sundance saying all along he reported on the independent doj person. When you go to the link it just goes on and on with Sessions lies about IG Horowitz investing “all avenues”. Sundance was also calling for a special counsel like the first congress letter requested. I see no discussion about an independent person appointed until after Sessions was caught in his big fat IG is investigating everything lie. I understand Sessions not being able to tell all – but the lies and deception are inexcusable. I hope he foiia the dog mystery person appointment letter. I don’t believe there was one all along. Moreover, all this time the IG could not have been doing a fill investigation as Sessions affirmed in his intentional lie.

          You’re noting Sessions “lying” – 1) Sessions can do what he needs to do. It IS NOT our right to know what’s going on with their investigations. Investigations are secret for a reason – to avoid being compromised. 2) Consider that Goodlatte and Gowdy could be sowing the red herrings – lying to play a part. 3) “lies and deception are inexcusable” – no, it’s not a matter of our desires or what we think we’re entitled to know. This is President Trump’s WH, DOJ and FBI – he hasn’t changed about draining the swamp. Regardless, we’re not the prosecutors or investigators. Due process is due everyone under our Laws.

    I won’t be happy until the original source of the dossier garbage is identified. Was it Glen Simpson, Baumgartner, Waldman, Sid Vicious, Shearer, Boris and Natasha? To me, this is the most important question, because the Libs I talk to don’t care what crimes were committed by the DOJ/FBI conspirators; they believe Trump really is the Manchurian candidate–so all this other stuff at the DOJ is a sideshow. That’s why it’s crucial the dossier is revealed as an unequivocal hoax, and I’m afraid that neither IG Horowitz nor Sessions’ mystery prosecutor can take the investigation in that direction.

    We still need a special prosecutor.

      I agree. Moreover, why did Session lie and state the IG was looking into everything when he knew he couldn’t. Now, not wanting to get caught in a lie again Sessions obfuscates what the new mystery person can do- and says he still looking into a special prosecutor.

      Sessions had a golden opportunity to clear things up last night in the interview. Instead he came up with the new mystery person and obfuscates even more. He’s letting people assume the mystery person can investigate all now that the lie about the IG lie has exposed Sessions. I hope he puts in Foia requests on the mystery person.

      I think Sessions is acting desperate if he can’t give straight answers and is continuing to lie , obfuscate and engaging in deception. I was hopping he’d clear thing up in his interview but lied even more. He’s totally lost my confidence in him.

          If Sessions were following the law he wouldn’t need to lie and would have given a straight answer and cite laws. As Sundance article states Sessions had affirmed the IG was investigating “all avenues” we now know that was a lie. Even in the interview last night Sessions continued to obfuscate and be evasive. And could not state the new mystery person had the authority to investigate fully.

          When the AG of the country lies and obfuscates and can’t give a straight answer we’ve got extremely serious problems. There is no excuse for liking to the American people. He played us for suckers because we trusted him. He betrayed our trust. He didn’t clear thing up in his interview last night- he just obfuscated and was even more evasive and misleading. I used to admire Session- but he’s totally lost my confidence. There is no excuse for this magnitude of lying and deception- period.

            I’m sorry, it seems you’re trolling Sundance’s article. Ignorance of the law on our part doesn’t make us/you right. You have no idea of why things are moving as they do, and as I noted to Alan above who thought he/we had the “right to know” NO, we don’t. Too bad if you don’t like it, but if you were the one being investigated you’d sure want due process. Without the Law, you get mob vengeance and “Ox-Bow Incident.”

            I wouldn’t presume to rewrite our laws and how they’re supposed to work. That’s what Lefties do. Even in a libertarian world, there has to be order to the universe or all is chaos.

      No, not Giuliani. He isn’t outside of “DC.” Not just because of his association with POTUS, but NYC, IMO, is part of the DC Swampland. It will likely be someone we haven’t heard of, but quietly doing their job, a patriot with a conscience who doesn’t let politics drive his work product.

    I’m glad that a Special Counsel was not named as that position is more of a political construct more than anything else. I expect Sessions tapped a roll up your sleeves prosecutor and that person is grinding through the details and convening all possible Federal Grand Juries outside of DC to put the drop on this vast left wing conspiracy.

    Cue the scene from the Untouchables where Al Capone rants about how he wants Elliot Ness and his team done away with, their families done away with and their houses burned to the ground.

    Sorry, I’m not buying any of the Jeff Sessions-redemption argument. While always highly impressed and appreciative of the research provided here by SD, this news tells us nothing about the mettle and determination of Sessions to prosecute any individual in the most criminal and corrupt administration in American history. All we know, one year later, is that Sessions has performed or is performing (at best) at a bare minimum level of standards to prosecute the law. After one year, not one individual or known perjurer or felon (take your pick) is, that we know of, being investigated or prosecuted despite preponderant evidence beyond any reasonable doubt as to their guilt. Do we even know the name of this mysterious DOJ investigator/figure who has been appointed, or his timeline for action? Or his or her possible connections to the Deep State? (If he has been identified, I missed it, so apologize in advance.)

    We’ll see. But all I’ve seen so far is an indictment against Paul Manafort, the ruination of General Michael Flynn and some recommendation for the punishment of Kelly Ann Conway. Meanwhile the criminal cartel known as the Obama administration not only flouts the law but operates in bold outspoken subversion against our current President.

      This is conjecture, with many indicators that it is not true, which I feel that SD has spelled out pretty clearly… But no, we do not know that for a fact. It is your opinion, which is fine, but I do not see it as a fact myself.

      I think, AG Sessions is a powerful person, disguised in a bit of a smallish package, with a disarming demeanor. I don’t think he is a powerful speaker either. His message is powerful, the words he uses are powerful, but his formal public presentation, well, his presentation is sometimes a bit halting, maybe even awkward. I see all this as a positive, because his arena is a courtroom, not the bully pulpit.

        Amwick :

        Agree totally with your last paragraph. Many of us grew up with a Sessions
        in our midst. We was the quiet guy in our high school that made good grades.
        And never talked about it. Was on track team, baseball, tennis, swim team.
        One of the stronger team mates. Others would talk about what a great job
        he did, what an asset to the team he was. He’d smile if they mentioned it,
        and drop it at that.

        If he showed up to class reunions, he’d pull up in a nice car. Not brand new,
        not flashy. When you’d ask about what he did for a living, or where he lived
        you’d realize that he was entirely beyond everybody else in the room.

        Simply put: we’ve all met Jeff Sessions types in our lives. Not the tallest,
        most talkative, best looking, flashiest with possesions, or trophy wives.

        Sessions types are the most competent, driven individuals you’d care to
        meet. The fact that they are quiet about it makes it even more deadly
        for anyone that cares to get in their way.

    It made sense that there had to be a DOJ prosecutor assigned to the wheeling and dealing. Police investigate but then the DA has to decide on the charges and deals, if any. That’s not in the purview of the investigator. Thus IG Horowitz would have had to call in Sessions and get one assigned to handle the negotiations. Investigations, successful ones, have to be secret in order to secure the right outcome. At least now President Trump will know the pots have been cooking all along.

    Two things:
    1) I’m looking forward to Congresses’ and the medias’ meltdown when all is revealed – arrests, indictments, etc.
    2) This is will make a great book someday. 🙂

    Two other valued observers have counted multiple investigations that were announced previously and have been long underway.

    Lindsay/Rex counts nine besides this one:

    Schweikart also recounts multiple investigation announcements in two threads:

    Patriot President Trump will not allow these crooks get away with defiling and defrauding our nation.

    PDJT is known as a fierce unyielding warrior in business, legal, media and now the political spheres.

    Moreover, Trump fights with a righteous sword – does not fight dirty like the left – but fights for truth, justice and the American way, defending the Judeo-Christian religious freedom, foundational Commandments and values that made our country great. He will not back down.

    Sessions is just one of the many razor sharp weapons our President is employing to restore true justice, law and order and economic strength and stability to our country.

    Thanks for this article! All along you have been providing the clues and insights into this situation with AG Sessions. Perhaps the hand wringing and second guessing over Sessions can now ease up a bit. Things may be progressing slowly, but if this prosecutor working parallel to the IG has been involved since last year, we can expect big things to happen soon!
