Chuck Grassley and Senate Judiciary Committee Request Second Special Counsel – (video and pdf)…

Chairman Chuck Grassley along with republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee are formally requesting a second special counsel to investigate the FBI and DOJ involvement in the Clinton-Steele Dossier.

The republicans asked Office of the Inspector General to explore the FBI and DOJ’s handling of dossier in February; but now they are requesting Attorney General Jeff Sessions and DAG Rod Rosenstein to appoint a special counsel (full pdf below) because the IG does not have the ability to obtain testimony from witnesses who are not DOJ employees. This is the same motive of request from HPSCI Chairman Nunes and Trey Gowdy.

During House and Senate investigation it was discovered that officials in other agencies, namely the State Department, were involved in the dossier’s use prior to the October 26th, 2016, FISA application and after the 2016 election. At least one person directly in the State Department was in contact with Christopher Steele.

Previously AG Jeff Sessions stated he already assigned a prosecutor from outside Washington DC to work with Inspector General Michael Horowitz –SEE HERE-; so I’m not exactly sure if Chairman Grassley will get a different response than that already given to Chairman Nunes.

      DOJ already has any criminal recommendations the IG will be making as they give those to AG as they find them, not waiting for the final report. So that bridge has been crossed.

      And the SC will be named by Rosenstein or Sessions. The last one got us Mueller. I don’t see anything that has been changed that would make the second one actually be working for the forces of good.

      In my mind, I don’t see big positives coming down the pike based on these facts. I hope to be proven wrong, though.

      @rich: Having another special counsel that takes up another year or longer is a waste of time.
      Jeff Sessions hired an outside the beltway investigation team that is working since last year August 2017 on these same issues. It obviously has already brought results as the sealed indictments are piling up. It’s action time.
      Gowdy confuses me because he apparently still believes that there is something left to investigate about the Russian collusion. We saw his effort to solve the Benghazi murders of four Americans and the backstory that ended in stalemate. Enough already.

    As Sundance says, it’s not clear that Grassley will get a different answer than the one Sessions already gave on the same subject.

    So why is Grassley asking?

    Because now we are on offense and running our own propaganda campaign. Now we are building our own case, creating a groundswell, doing our own drip-drip-drip.

    This is how you do it. It’s been a brilliant, patient process. As much as we want justice done yesterday, it doesn’t work like that. You have to slowly build up your army’s forces. And that’s what has been done, all this time, as Sundance has pointed out over and over again.

    We’re getting closer. Still a ways to go, but we’re moving closer every day.

    The immediate goal is the 2018 midterms, as well as neutralizing any threat to Trump (they go together, those two things). No reason to rush the matters as we want to have the last word on “scandals” before the midterms.

          Recusal “on/off” is not a helpful way to view this subject.
          Better to think of scope of recusal. That the press or somebody else wrongfully expands the scope of Sessions blinders, doesn;t mean those blinders actually reach that far. There was an asinine contention in June hearings that Sessions should have recused from firing Comey, to pick an example.
          Sessions is recused from a case where Hillary is defendant against an allegation involving her reckless exposure of secrets with her e-mail (but not all cases where Hillary is a defendant); cases involving Clinton Foundation; and cases relating to the conduct of the Trump campaign.

All I’ve been able to glean from different sources almost all conservative has me doubting Sessions abilities more than his character. I don’t normally voice this since I hate to join in with the “kill Sessions” crowd but I see no reason to give him overwhelming support either. We’ve seen that there are many others surrounding Trump who have not done the job they should have and little by little he’s replacing them. I see no reason to give Sessions some kind of pass on everything he’s done or not done. I’ll have to leave it to Trump to see what he wants to do about Sessions and I know he will not do it in a way that undermines his own objectives. I have to admit I’m more concerned about Sessions than some of the others because his job had a more direct impact on the President than other jobs of advice giving have.

But so far Mueller has strayed far afield and Rosenstein has shown no interest in reining him in. Mueller will go til he has a legitimate indictment against Trump, probably based on one of his business transactions. After all, that is the purpose of the exercise.

          Starting with the earliest posts on the subject, I understood SD to say that the documentation gathered by the IG would be provided to Congress in January (which it was!) and the report would become available in March (It is only March 16).
          In addition it has been pointed out that the IG is required to inform his superior upon immediately finding any wrongdoing and not wait for his final report (which has reported as being done).
          I fail to see a valid reason for being worried or fearful that nothing will be done.

    For myself, I would prefer these investigations stay the responsibility of the AG, the OIG and a prosecutor appointed by someone MAGA to do whatever the OIG cannot do.

    A Special Counsel, it seems to me, takes this from a MAGA team to someone independent. Like Mueller. If Grassley is for it since he is aware of EVERYTHING, we believe,, then that is a pro argument for the SC. However, don’t people get pause when they see Graham, Cornyn, Tillis, Chaffetz, etc. calling for the SC?

    I believe I read it here but it could have been elsewhere that when Comey opened us the second investigation into the Clinton emails right before the election in 2016, MAGA folks, including me, were excited. However, by doing that Comey was able to take Weiner’s laptop from the NY investigation and keep it out of anyone else’s hands. That shut down that out of DC investigation. Then he was able to claim that they had searched them all and then close the re-opened case before the election was held.

    Comey did that to protect Clinton from outside investigations. He took the risk because he, like the world, believed that Clinton was a lock in the election and he could risk it to protect her from prosecution. Outside independent investigators looking into Weiner got hamstrung but got a plea deal out of Weiner. He paid a small price, but Clinton was protected.

    Special Counsel could be a controlled opposition getting control of the OIG’s information and thereby stopping other independent prosecutors from getting involved. McCabe, who seems to be the one who is going to be the fall guy to protect bigger fish (like Weiner was a fall guy) will plea deal, get a couple of years and the rest will walk.

    I could be so wrong. I often am. But rushing into things often gives us quick highs but big letdowns in the end. Investigations into Benghazi, Lerner, Weiner, the emails, etc. should be teaching us to be patient and to follow our heads not our emotions.

    IN MY OPINION.

    I keep reading different version of the same statement — claims that the DOJ or FBI cannot investigate itself — and that statement appears again in this latest Grassley letter.
    It’s true that a PERSON cannot investigate him or her self, but I don’t know that that’s true for a department or agency of government, especially when that department or agency is under different management than it was under at the time that the conduct that needs investigating occurred.
    This isn’t the Lynch DOJ investigating itself, and it isn’t the Comey FBI investigating itself. It’s the Sessions DOJ investigating the Lynch DOJ, and the Wray FBI investigating the Comey FBI.
    True, there might be some internal conflicts arising out of some of the same people being a part of each organization, but they can be weeded out from participation if their prior actions arouse suspicion.

    Meanwhile, the statutory authority for disqualification (which is a prelude to appointing a special counsel) is 28 U.S. Code § 528- Disqualification of officers and employees of the Department of Justice:

    ” The Attorney General shall promulgate rules and regulations which require the disqualification of any officer or employee of the Department of Justice, including a United States attorney or a member of such attorney’s staff, from participation in a particular investigation or prosecution if such participation may result in a personal, financial, or political conflict of interest, or the appearance thereof. Such rules and regulations may provide that a willful violation of any provision thereof shall result in removal from office.”

    That statutory authority references disqualification of a particular person from participating in a particular investigation. That language clearly foretells a situation where one or more individuals within the DOJ or FBI might have conflicts of interest — such as being required to investigate themselves — but it doesn’t indicate that the presence of such people should prohibit the entire DOJ or FBI from being able to conduct a proper investigation.

    The special counsel statute does make the assumption that conditions might exist where the entire DOJ or FBI might not be the entities to conduct an investigation, but it seems to me that that would more likely apply if it were still the same people at the head of those organizations, or still the same political party in charge. Neither of those circumstances applies here.

    And it appears that NONE of these people calling for a special counsel have the first clue about whether or not a criminal investigation is or has been going on parallel to or connected with the IG’s investigation. Appointing a special counsel now could throw a serious monkey wrench into any investigation currently ongoing, and at a minimum would require starting all over again from the beginning.

    The smart thing to do would be to wait for the Inspector General’s report, wait to find out whether a criminal prosecutor was assigned to assist the IG in interrogating witnesses outside the IG’s authority, and then see whether Sessions does anything about it QUICKLY. If a criminal prosecutor has been working with the IG, indictments should follow rapidly after the IG’s report is released.

    I think these requests for a second Special Counsel is for optics. It is to get the idea of the Horowitz IG report into the mind of the general population.

    Repeatedly bringing that IG report up is the best way to get the Sheeple to pay attention to it. It keeps the Yellow Stream Media from burying the whole report. It is also necessary for preparing the Sheeple for major indictments down the road.

    Sheesh!

    The ability by The Good Guys to self deceive is really incredible.

    The Bad Guys are successfully playing the delay game. Delay, Delay, Delay.

    Hold out for another 6-7 years and they win. Trump is out, they win.

    Firing Mccabe should be a no-brainer, he’s guilty as all heck, why the delay? Why is Sessions having a problem kicking this guy out on his azz?

    And Nunes, you’re great! Why the need for another SP? More delay?

    And Mueller, Mueller? He’s got less than nothing. Why is this farce being allowed to continue?

    Why are Comey-Homey, The Clap, and Brennan The Muzzie still walking free?

    And Susan Powers?

    And The B-l-eat Goes On.

    Sundance, grateful to you as always for pointing out these important Congressional communications, but it would be helpful to your readers if you gave links to the Congressional committee or House/Senate member’s webpage where we can download the document for further study.

    Your chosen method – Scribd – requires registration in order to download which is unacceptable.

    U.S. Congress websites are free to use.

    Here is the link for this post’s document.

    The DOJ IG was used for the DOJ-FBI investigation.
    Has anyone bothered to look at the State Dept IG?

    Looked there personally couple weeks ago. The DOS IG is a mess.
    836 open investigations. A review of the Benghazi Review Board recommendations was just started. Closed recommendations are repeated, regardless of having been closed.The same infractions are committed over and over and over again. Money is wasted hand over fist with no remedy. People have been leaving DOS in droves. How are they to be interviewed by DOS IG?

    How are we to have confidence in the DOS IG?
    Anyone even hear of the DOS IG, let alone an investigation?
    Second counsel. Please.

    Anyone know what the “Woods Procedures” are?
    Grassley wants to go after Comey–he made that clear (to me) with his insistence for the second SC because the IG can’t interview those no longer employed with the gov’t. And the letter shows he’s annoyed with Comey’s answers and then failure to respond to requests by Grassley’s committee to explain those answers.
    He also seems mad about the way Flynn was treated and the details leaked.
    I like that cock-of-the-walk talk at the end by Grassley…”i going to use as much leverage as I can and I have a lot to get the job done…” go get ’em Chuck!

    I just have one question. Do Sessions, President Trump, Nunes, and Grassley live on separate planets with no means of communication? Of course, I jest, but honestly, they act like they can’t just come right out and ask each other questions. They seem to have no clue what the others are doing. Ring, hey, ______, what’s up?

    Whether there be another SC or an outside prosecutor, Mueller’s team will need to be interviewed. Ole Peter the super spy and lover was on his team after all. Oh boy….

  24. Per Sundance’s question at the end about whether Grassley would get a different response: Grassley has more leverage with Sessions than Nunes. In fact, I thought it was weird when Sessions said he had great respect for Gowdy and Grassley, but failed to say the same for Nunes.

    I, personally, don’t care for Sessions. Of course, Grassley has to say he thinks Sessions is doing a good job because he wants something from him. I also find it offensive that they keep threatening POTUS…if he does this, if he does that….don’t like it at all.

    It has been 20 months since July 15, 2016 and it has taken that long for me to go through the 5 stages of grief for the acceptance of the death om my country.
