McCabe Firing Shows Evidence of IG and Outside Prosecutor Working Together…

What has become increasingly visible is the largest political scandal in the history of U.S. government.  A political conspiracy at the highest levels of the prior administration and across multiple agencies within the U.S. intelligence apparatus.  The scale of corruption being exposed is astounding.

The investigative effort to unravel and bring justice is almost overwhelming.  It is also very likely the issues surrounding Andrew McCabe are only just beginning.

Within the response letter from Michael Bromwich, the attorney representing fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, you might note the following (emphasis mine):

[…] The investigation described in the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) report was cleaved off from the larger investigation of which it was a part, its completion expedited, and the disciplinary process completed in a little over a week. Mr. McCabe and his counsel were given limited access to a draft of the OIG report late last month, did not see the final report and the evidence on which it is based until a week ago, and were receiving relevant exculpatory evidence as recently as two days ago. (pdf link)

Within the Office of Professional Responsibility guidelines for Attorney Representation you might also note the following (again, emphasis mine):

The majority of OPR investigations are administrative in nature, and employees are not entitled to counsel as a matter of law. However, counsel may be permitted if counsel does not interfere with or delay the interview. Counsel must be actually retained by the employee as his legal representative, not as an observer. Counsel are not permitted access to certain confidential criminal investigative information and may not be permitted access to grand jury information.. (link)

Put both of those statements together, along with the underlying issues that Inspector General Michael Horowitz was investigating, and there’s even more likely evidence of the “outside Washington DC” prosecutor noted in the following statement from Attorney General Jeff Sessions:

… 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. (read more)

I would strongly encourage readers to review the OPR standards –SEE HERE– and also review the information –HERE– to understand the process used by the Office of Inspector General and the Office of Professional Responsibility, as well as the conclusions reached. It is an exhausting process and it is NOT easy to be fired.  Not by a long shot.

A few more important points:

♦First, the question:  If Jeff Sessions has appointed a prosecutor to work with Inspector General Horowitz, why do congressional reps keep asking for a second special counsel?

The answer is a lot simpler than we might think: They don’t know.

The legislative branch of the government doesn’t know what the criminal investigations are of the executive branch of government; AND AG Jeff Sessions has repeatedly said his intention is to restore the proper, appropriate and professional standards of the U.S. Department of Justice.  (ie. no talking about criminal investigations)

Within this specific investigation there is a triple role.  ¹A DOJ Inspector General conducting an internal investigation; ² Appropriate congressional oversight; and ³ the collection of evidence that might also be used in criminal indictments.

Within the IG collection of evidence there are two competing issues:  #1) Evidence of misconduct and political bias (shared openly with congress and oversight); and #2) evidence of illegal activity (retained from congress to preserve integrity of evidence for later used in criminal proceedings); this is where the “outside DC prosecutor” comes in.

Which brings us to point #2

♦Accusations of DOJ hiding evidence from congress.

Several congressional representatives have stated the information about Judge Rudolph Contreras was not readily know because his association with Peter Strzok was redacted within text messages sent from DOJ to congress.  Therefore the DOJ is trying to hide damaging information.  That claim is not the correct framework/context.

Congress as a whole (reps, staff and investigators) can go to the DOJ and look at ALL unredacted text messages.  However, if congressional staff wish to take copies with them the copies must be redacted. Why?  Because, just like the Contreras issue within the Strzok and Page text messages, there’s a possibility specific texts are evidence of a crime.

Go back to December 2nd, 2017, when the first reports of the IG investigative findings were hitting the news media and you’ll note IG Horowitz said he has no issues with congressional oversight getting his investigative evidence with the approval FROM the DOJ.   In this example the “prosecutor”, working with Horowitz, has to make a determination if a potential criminal case would be compromised by allowing the release of specific information/evidence gathered by the Inspector General.

Lastly, where all this appears to be going.  It is not likely there will be a ‘second special counsel’ per se’.  With a prosecutor already working with Inspector General Horowitz that person already has a thorough knowledge of all the evidence.  As soon as the IG publishes his report, the prosecutor can begin subpoenaing witnesses.  It’s more than likely there’s already a Grand Jury seated somewhere hearing the criminal evidence he/she has carved out from the overwhelming IG evidence as collected.

You and I might be frustrated with the pace of the activity for a myriad of righteous reasons.  However, we must also remind ourselves of the scale and scope of the corruption here that is inherent within the BIG PICTURE.  All of this was done on purpose.  None of this was accidental.

The prosecutor could, likely would, be having to outline the biggest political conspiracy in the history of politics.  It is entirely possible officials within the CIA, NSA, DOJ, FBI, State Department, ODNI, and national security apparatus along with the Obama White House, Clinton campaign officials, politicians, career bureaucrats and possibly judges are all entwined and involved.

Add into this likelihood the complicit ideological media who will go absolutely bananas about any single member of their team being indicted; and a better than average chance the media will follow instructions from their leadership and send tens-of-thousands of low-info sycophants into the streets in protest, and well… you see the picture.

The left only know one narrative: “Jeff Sessions is doing Trump’s evil bidding.” That’s it. That’s the drumbeat. 24/7/365 That’s the narrative pushed over and over.

Look at their reaction to Andrew McCabe’s simple firing, which Trump had nothing to do with, and think about what their response would be to indictments?…

    The only “critique” I would have for Sundance is to change “administration” to “administrations” in the opening paragraph.
    What is about to be exposed will definitely cause shock and disbelief among many. It will also give credence and exoneration to many accused of wearing Tinfoil Fedoras.
    Go back to “Big Sis” saying that the greatest threat to Homeland Security are former veterans, conservative and/or 3rd party voters; and supportive of conservative causes.
    Anyone capable of independent thought is on a list somewhere and anything that can be done to silence those thoughts is being undertaken.

There was some bad in our past … that is true. But we seem to have corrected the worst of it already and that gives me hope that we can fix the rest, too.

          At the moment, that largely consists in finding ways to work together. The division in our land cuts all the way to the bone and MUST be fixed if we are to survive as a nation in a form that we would be comfortable with laying claim to.

    You know? As increasingly frequently the gateway pundit cites and references this site, I have to wonder why they are still beating the “fire Sessions” drum? They sort of make good arguments from a media-consumer with little understanding of the legal/criminal justice system perspective. They just want to see people locked up. They don’t see what treepers see.

    For example, the long and dramatic delay in firing McCabe? That was probably Trump’s idea. I suspect Sessions was planning to fire him sooner but after Trump made that tweet long ago about “running out the clock” it just makes more sense that this is psychological warfare coming from the Trump white house. But what did the people of TGP see? Why hasn’t Sessions fired him long ago!? Cernovich said he has people telling him Sessions will not fire. And people losing themselves in anger, hate and frustration.

    I saw it immediately for what it was. They didn’t. They just want to see heads rolling.

    Trump is playing a long and lasting game. What he cleans up will not soon be corrupt again. The deep state knows this and that’s why they want to stop him. It’s not that their abuse of power for personal gain would be suspended. It’s that it would be ENDED.

      I had the same misgivings as you about The Gateway Pundit. Whenever I tried to defend Sessions, always with reason, logic and substantiation, the virulent response was so out of whack it was bizarre. On that site, Lucian Wintrich was irresponsible in whipping up strident and badly informed hysteria against Sessions. I am positive that Wintrich was being over-zealous in that respect and did not have nefarious motives. That was not so of many of the people who mercilessly attacked me. I have a very thick skin.

      A similar thing happened at Breitbart. Ken Klukowski wrote some excellent articles there in defence of Sessions and his legal strategy. He was very convincing and informed. and I said so in one of my comments. The attacks on that comment went on over two days.

      It made me wonder if the Sessions bashing came from planted trolls masquerading as “patriots” in order to destabilise and sabotage his credibility. I said so, and it struck a real nerve, in effect adding weight to my suspicions.

      I still believe that Sessions is an unsung hero in this sordid saga. Sundance has also done a wonderful service in his analyses.

      “More: Oh? And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned round on you — where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat? This country’s planted thick with laws from coast to coast — man’s laws, not God’s — and if you cut them down — and you’re just the man to do it — d’you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then? Yes, I’d give the Devil benefit of law, for my own safety’s sake.”

        Treatment of Sessions reminded me of what happened with Comey. At first, everyone was saying what an honest guy he was and the Dems hated him. Then he exonerated Hillary and everyone said what a bad guy he was and the Dems loved him. Then he released the laptop info and the Dems hated him again. I saw a lot of commenters wanting Sessions to resign and the Dems wanted to protect him. After McCabe, commenters like him again and the Dems want him gone. It occurred to me as well that some of the Sessions haters were Dem trolls, trying to get Sessions out before the IG report comes out and the spaghetti hits the fan. I guess I’m saying something really obvious like don’t believe everything you read and don’t be too quick to follow the lemmings over the cliff.

    A simple and understandable statement for why this is not running as fast as people might like is that a LOT of care and caution must be exercised here. The people they are investigating have tendrils of unknown depth and reach. The destruction or alteration of evidence could easily be a likely result by nearly any of the nameless and faceless DC bureaucrats running the deep state. If they see it all happening in a rapid pace, it provides cover for “mistakes” to occur. We’ve seen this over and over again as the DOJ and/or the FBI claim to not have incriminating evidence until it is proven they do… or DID have it.

    This is the deep state. They must be hit when they aren’t looking or when they can’t possibly get away with it.

    Excellent piece. Yes, the possible use of mass protesters is a problem that must be managed. Holder, brennon, even Obama himself – as we saw immediately after the election – do know how to marshall and will certainly be planning to use these resources. The media will then pile on and all fingers will be pointed at Trump as the sower of mass chaos and “facism.” For the conspirators, the hope would be to trigger unceasing violence. Deployment of national guard forces will be anticipated by the left and they will plan counter-measures. I wouldn’t be surprised to see them use extreme violence, including possible use of explosives to create chaos. I also think folks smart enough to have created the anti-trump conspiracy might be expected to come up with other creative options, some of which could be very, very nefarious (e.g., execution/ assassination of public officials). This is going to be wrenching.

      @RJones: You are right and violence and protests are underway but not unsurprising to most of the white hats together with Rogers/NSA that also includes the president.
      As per Q yesterday – the USMC 3rd division has been activated. Any unrest organized by the deep state monsters will be squashed with no time.
      Q also posted that there is absolute chaos and panic in DC after McCabe’s firing. While the social media giants have been censoring all of Trumps voters on the platform by deleting or suspending accounts, shadow banning Q stated that the deep state has only one hope left: rigging or cheating in the upcoming election.
      The Mockingbird media is in the progress of following social media and also censor Trump supporters while doing their best to influence public opinion.

      There was more exposure of some really bad stuff they have been involved but as Sundance correctly stated the roll out of the absolute treasonous acts has to be done in stages and methodical as to take them down. This goes back to the Bush presidency and everything in between.

    • Moses came down from Mount Sinai, carrying the two tablets of the covenant, which were the work of God. The writing was the writing of God, engraved upon the tablets.

      Joshua, hearing the noise of the people, said to Moses,

      “There is a noise of war in the camp.”

      But Moses said:

      “It is not the sound made by victors,
      or the sound made by losers;
      it is the sound of revelers that I hear.”

      When they arrived at the camp and saw the calf and the dancing, Moses’ anger burned hot, and he threw the tablets from his hands and broke them at the foot of the mountain. He took the calf they had made, burned it with fire, ground it to powder, scattered it on the water, and made the Israelites drink it.

      “What did this people do to you that you have brought so great a sin upon them?” Moses asked his brother Aaron.

      “Do not let your anger burn hot; you know the people, that they are bent on evil. They said to me, ‘Make us gods who shall go before us; as for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.’

      “So I said to them, ‘Whoever has gold, take it off;’ so they gave it to me, and I threw it into the fire, and out came this calf!”

      When Moses saw that the people were running wild, he stood in the gate of the camp and said,

      “Who is on the Lord’s side? Come to me!” And all the sons of Levi gathered around him.

      “Thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, ‘Put your sword on your side, each of you! Go back and forth throughout the camp, and each of you kill your brother, your friend, and your neighbor.’”

      The sons of Levi did as Moses commanded, and about three thousand of the people fell on that day.

      And Moses returned to the Lord and said,

      “Alas, this people has sinned a great sin; they have made for themselves gods of gold. If you cannot forgive their sin, blot ME out of the book that you have written.”

      But the Lord said to Moses,

      “When the day comes, I will punish them for their sin. Whoever has sinned against me I will blot out of my book. ”

    We have now awoken to a very serious “wrong” being committed upon our land and it’s people, WE, The People!
    This sickness started many, many, years ago – circa 1970-80 via the education channel. And, by the 90’s it had become a driving force within our Govt ranks – known as the “politically correct” movement.
    Now is the time for this to all end. But, for this to happen and to really “stick” – so many things have to be done “according to Hoyle”. Just imagine the mtn of paper that will be consumed listing the charges on the multi-page lists of defendants. We are told that a “senior DOJ” person as been assigned — makes me wonder how many typists he has with him and how many hours he spends per day trying to get his mind around this monster cabal of illegal actors!…
    We, trying to look “inside” from the outside can only see “nothing”….now, with McCabe’s exit pushing the curtain aside just a wee-bit, due to his pending retirement date – a quickening, so to say, is caused and noticed. There is “something” going on back in there after all.
    As much as I’d like to see every lamp post in DC crowded with used ropes, we do need to let this play out according to rules and regulations – with all t’s crossed and I’s dotted. Only then will this sickness of the “Swamp” be truly pulled out by the roots and stomped on with every size 10D out there on our streets. This bent group of commie’s needs to get what they are due – but, call it NWO or Elitists if you will – they are subversive to our way of life and treason when found within our “green check ranks” of the Govt.
    If we don’t, or can’t, then it will remain for We, The People, to once again answer the call and hit the streets of every town and city in America to force the cleaning needed … Can’t move as fast as I use to, nor the wife, but….we’ll still get it done – like our fathers and brothers did in the 40’s.

        It still doesn’t make sense why they did it how they did, unless the way they did it was actually the best possible outcome Hillary could have hoped for.

        Maybe the FBI under Comey et. al. had just become an arrogant monster that thought it had the ability to call the shots regardless of who got elected, and so the simultaneous Hillary investigation and Trump spying / set-up was a way of holding power over each of them?

        This is all just almost too unreal to believe. For anyone interested in the truth regardless of party affiliation, the facts clearly show a legit vast conspiracy was taking place among the highest levels of our government and the media.

        I mean, just look at one tiny piece of it all that unfortunately seems to have been forgotten: the 2016 Democratic presidential candidate (who ultimately won the popular vote) was being investigated by the FBI.

        Even Obama couldn’t protect Hillary from the FBI. That seems to support a view of the FBI that saw itself as the ultimate arbiter of political power.

          I think what you’re asking is why did McCabe and Comey release the Huma emails so close to the election which triggered a re-opening of the investigation.

          What I think happened was that McCabe was sitting on these emails hoping to keep them hidden until after the election, but someone either went around him to Comey or threatened to and this gave McCabe and Comey no choice. If McCabe knew about these emails 6 months earlier, then it’s reasonable that Comey knew as well, but once someone outside their trusted circle threatened to go live with the information then they had no choice even if it was close to the election.

    • TPR, McCabe (and Comey?) withheld the Wiener laptop evidence with Clinton emails from late Sept until late Oct, hoping to keep it quiet until after the Nov. 8 election. But NYPD had an open investigation on Wiener sexting with a minor, and NYPD announced the emails, forcing McCabe to announce the Clinton emails on Wiener’s laptop. Comey had no choice but to re-open the Clinton investigation.

      The great part is that if McCabe (Comey?) had come forward with Wiener laptop as soon as it was in FBI’s possession in late Sept., the issue would have died down by the election and Hillary probably would have won. But now The Storm is coming, and McCabe says he’s going to take others down with him. Bwahahahaha!!!

        Comey’s reopening of “the Hillary matter” in October had very little effect on the General Election. By that time people were tired of hearing about it and convinced that she would get off the hook one way or another. “Too big to jail.”

        August, September, October of 2016 candidate Trump was barnstorming the nation speaking to tens of thousands of voters; while the old queen of entitlement was hobnobbing with the rich and famous accepting huge campaign bribes, err donations.

That, plus, iirc, multiple white hatted FBI agents were close to mutiny. Comey was between a rock and a hard place – i think these reasons probably account for his action.

    One of the encouraging things is knowing how big the FBI, DOJ, State Department, etc. are. There may be some really bad apples who have abused their power to attack Trump, but I have to believe there are far more honest and virtuous people within those agencies who are furious about what’s happened and who are thus determined to make sure the conspirators are revealed and punished.

    B) revoke the cable outlet licenses: Fox News (they’re guilty too), MSNBC, CNN, et al.

    C) ARREST the CEOs and upper management and ownership of all of the above, and charge them all with conspiracy to defraud the American People, with Propaganda, with abuse of power, with corruption, inciting violence, and aiding and abetting the attempted overthrow of the lawfully elected government of the United States.

    D) ARREST nearly ALL of the visible anchors and other talking heads, and charge them all likewise. Get the so-called ‘stars’ OFF the air. This isn’t about THEM, it’s about saving our country.

    Wipe out the entire FAKE NEWS construct. The political-class is a Uni-Party, and the Fake News Media is a Uni-Branch of the political-class. They inseparable, the are co-conspirators, and they are all corrupt.

    Wipe them OUT.

    Take away their ability to propagandize the American Public, just as THEY have been doing EVERYTHING POSSIBLE to wipe out Conservative voices of individual Americans on Facebook, Youtube, et al, and through Censorship and manipulation of search engines (Google, at al).

    Easy solution.

    Stage National Guard members at every large “Deep Blue” city. Just in case.

    Next, contact the enemy. Let them know that the National Guard is already positioned to wipe out their anti-fa guerillas. The Trump Administration knows exactly who the leadership is. Contact them, and tell them plainly, if they incite violence, they will PERSONALLY be charged as accomplices to ANY and ALL crimes committed, certainly including 1st degree MURDER, and they will PERSONALLY be held financially accountable for any all damages.

    Due to the powers of the Executive Orders on December 21st and since, the Treasury Department can seize assets directly. Wipe out the bank accounts and stock portfolios and every other asset, and seize property, of the heads of all the major propaganda outlets, and all of their ‘face’ people, and everyone they do business with.

    A couple of question for CTH as I’m a bit confused on certain points:

    1. Sundance says that the legislative branch simply does not know about the special prosecutor. if that’s the case, Sen. Goodlatte, in his interview with Bartiromo, was very frustrated with the FBI and DOJ and their slowness or complete lack of response to the Senate’s letters re document requests. He said that he’s on the verge of issuing subpoenas for such documents. Why has Sessions simply just informed the Senator about what he’s up to. He doesn’t even have to give all the details but just to let him know that he’s on top of the situation. DOJ/FBI not responding to requests over several months is not acceptable and Sens. Goodlatte, Grassley and Nunes, who are doing spectacular work, deserve better than this.

    2. As experienced legislators, Sens. Goodlatte, Grassley and Nunes must certainly know that they would need to go to the DOJ to review confidential documents (Nunes already did that). If that is the case, why don’t they just go to the DOJ?

    3. If Sessions has actually appointed a “prosecutor” and this person is working behind-the-scenes, is gathering evidence and has possibly already seated a grand jury, why has Sessions seemingly not already briefed Trump on all this? As far as I can tell, Trump is as mystified re Sessions’ behavior as many of us. Trump has grown ever more frustrated with Sessions publicly and probably would have fired him long ago if it wasn’t for the ridiculous Mueller/Rosenstein duo (with a couple idiots in the Senate thrown in (Graham).

    4. Sundance said the prosecutor will have to “… outline the biggest political conspiracy in the history of politics.” Sessions said he has appointed “a person” to investigate. Does this person have a large staff with an unlimited budget, just like Mueller? If yes, who are the people assisting this person?

With so many of the Communist bloc countries of the 60s and 70s having lost their socialistic ways to become free democracies I find it unfathomable that the Democrat party in today’s US seeks to become those parties of communism. Are they so insecure that they believe only a righteous few are capable of having a thought. Why do they mindlessly follow and demonstrate for these leaders?
    I understand what PBS and other so-called educational networks have done to indoctrinate our youngest into the PC culture. Quite possibly, these should be the first networks shut down.

    The reasons for the McCabe firing seemed to me to be weak tea compared to the actual crimes he has committed.

    It looks like the least serious but sufficiently serious reasons were chosen to get him fired before he retired (NOT IMO to deny him his pension, but to put his firing for cause on the record before it could not be done. IOW, the motive was not the pension – – which is dramatic but trivial in the big scheme of things – – but the outrage at McCabe and the desire to rip off his epaulets and cut his buttons).

    It is similar to Rosenstein’s reasons for firing Comey. They were very valid, very serious, and very unexpected in light of all the circumstances. Trump himself did not take them seriously. Comey SHOULD HAVE been fired for the reasons RR gave, but then half the prosecutors in America could be disbarred on the same grounds and THAT never happens. Comey has far, far more serious wrongdoing to face up to.

    It is a happy time when Sessions/IG are coordinating in this way.

    Trump’s democrat opponents have had to do absolutely no work over the past weeks because the Republicans and “conservative media” are doing all the work for them. All this stuff by SD is great stuff and some action is being done, at least superficially against the low to mid level bit players, to address the corruption. Yet over the past month:
    Republicans assaulted the president over his “nationalistic” economic policy.
    Republicans have warned him not to fire Mueller and are mad he fired McCabe.
    Republicans are saying the “investigation” (with No qualifiers on the word, that can only mean of Trump) must and will continue. Plus, Mueller is a good guy.
    You have Fox News supporting obstruction of justice claims this morning.
    You have FBN this morning, allowing that moron, Ralph Peters to spout his Russia-Russia mantra.
    Even NewsMax and OAN have taken swipes at the president.
    Fox even gave Dick Durbin 20 minutes of uninterrupted pontification time on Sunday.
    The Republicans are even slow rolling DACA, hiding behind the president’s compromise.
    Ryan and McConnell refused to work with Trump’s balanced budget proposals, opting instead to allow him to be assaulted for (gasp) expanding the national debt.
    Proven leaks by FBI and Democrat congressional members goes unpunished, even by the weak congressional ethics offices.
    There is not a single word of support for the President from anybody, even those investigating FISA, the DoJ, Clinton, etc.. Sure they spout off about corruption and cleaning up the government but what have they really done and not one word to remove Mueller’s biased, conflicted team.
    Over the past few weeks the Republicans have gone to great lengths to legitimize every Democrat complaint against Trump.

    What have the democrats done over the last few weeks? Nothing note worthy, they just sit back, snipe a little and watch the Republicans self-destruct (on purpose it appears).
    Their candidates adopted Trump’s platform (as well as the Republican bait and switch tactic) and will carry the day vs an uninspiring Republican field and a party that still wants Trump gone as well as who have NOT figured out its the cross-over vote stupid..
    They continue their usual attacks on Russia-Russia and support McCabe, when opportunity presents itself legitimized by GOP interviews.
    Republicans have even sabotaged local elections, for their own candidates.
    They have said nothing on Trump’s America First economics, allowing the Republican and the congressional pay masters on Wall Street to do the work.

    Meanwhile, everybody is watching the IG show and Mueller continues his march towards a Grand Jury to destroy the only government guy in DC who cares about US Interests and actually draining the swamp, President Trump.

    Its hard to ignore that the Republicans are the minority party by far and Trump won due to the crossover vote. The democrats are fixing that problem locally, something they forgot to do in 2014 to 2016.

    Its hard to stay enthusiastic while this macabre circus plays out. Kind of reminds you of an old western called “Death of Gunfighter”. I really do pray I am wrong that there is a miracle about to happen, and do have hope. Yet, its hard to ignore reality as it continues to march on.

            __________________

            It is why you choose blind faith that makes no sense.

            Sundance isn’t in charge. He could be right about nearly every point of analysis, his understanding of how things have developed up until now could be nearly completely accurate, but that’s no guarantee that this story ends the way it ought to.

            You put your faith and confidence in Sundance, who (unfortunately) is NOT in a position of authority or power. And he doesn’t control the people who ARE in positions of authority and power.

            But you choose to believe that it’s all a ‘done deal’, that because the analysis makes sense, everything will go as expected, that we should just ‘kick back’ and everything will be taken care of for us, and anybody who doesn’t believe blindly like you do simply doesn’t ‘comprehend’.

            Apparently it hasn’t occurred to you that you could be wrong, that those who you criticize might ‘comprehend’ better than you do. Until or unless we start seeing actual arrests and prosecutions, all we have to go on is ‘just trust me’, and the people in positions of authority and power have not earned that trust yet — not Horowitz, not Sessions, not Wray. So it would be wise to remain vigilant and on guard.

            And supposing things turn out as we hope they will, we need to remain vigilant and on guard then too. The price of freedom is eternal vigilance, not ‘let somebody else worry it’.

            Blind belief is dangerous.

  38. Funny how none of the ousted Obama Administration leaders seem to grasp they’ve been thrown out on their butts. They’re acting like the results of the election are irrelevant.

    Does it matter they left behind a plethora of fellow miscreants in all the departments, agencies & divisions throughout our government? We sure have a huge mess to clean up, don’t we?

    I’m glad we’re starting with the Intelligence Community, because we need the federal employees in the DOJ, CIA, FBI, ODNI, NSA, State Dept. & DHS focused on keeping us safe from foreign & domestic enemies who threaten us, not participating in the attacks against us.

    One thing worries me; with midterm elections looming, dragging out the release of DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report is not good. The American electorate needs this information & evidence BEFORE We The People go to the polls in November 2018.

    AG Sessions & IG Horowitz – get on with this! Finish & release your investigations & reports! Let’s go! Our nation hangs in the balance! We are counting on you!

    “Add into this likelihood the complicit ideological media who will go absolutely bananas about any single member of their team being indicted; and a better than average chance the media will follow instructions from their leadership and send tens-of-thousands of low-info sycophants into the streets in protest, and well… you see the picture.”

    Sundance touches on an incredibly important point: What is Trump’s plan when his grand scheme is revealed?

    It is abundantly clear that the Deep State Media will begin to pound the drum of “Dictatorship Hitler” and Soros will flood the streets with mobs, once they understand that Trump is charging, arresting, and indicting all of them.

    What is his plan to counter that?

    I have anticipated this for a long time, and it is the reason Trump and Sessions will not tip their hand. They want to give the media as little time as possible to hammer them with negative publicity. They want to drop the criminal investigation like a shockwave on Deep State.

    Maybe Sundance can answer here, or anyone else who has gameplanned this out: how does Trump respond to Soros mobs and “Hitler” narrative? Deploy Marines and just gut it out? You know that Democrat cities and mayors will tell their police to stand down in order to maximize the appearance of civil unrest.

    This is why they are so confident: they actually think Trump is too scared or timid to do it. They don’t understand who he is. But when they play their last Civil Unrest card, it will be incredibly damaging to the nation.

    Or maybe, just maybe… that’s when Trump finally gets Soros for crossing state lines to incite a riot. Did I just figure it out?

      I think Trump would be wise to take a lower profile. Not submissive. It would be the DOJ and Sessions, I guess, and maybe Horowitz, a Democrat, who open the curtain. Let your justice and police officials keep order. Arrest the Alt-Left, violent protesters, warn others. Keep the focus on jobs, trade, helping the middle class.

      Trump has brass cajones. Recall the hooligans who tried to stop one of his rallies, they went in a back door and over a wall? Not bad for 70!

      Let Dershowitz, Hannity, DiGenova, Ingraham, lead the media attacks. But that’s not Trump, I fear he’ll muddy the waters and possibly put himself in jeopardy with questionable late-night tweets.

          A strategic tweet is fine. Bloviating and whining, even giving the MSM ammo to spin it that way, hurts with independents, women.

          President Trump gets his highest marks when he is talking about the economy, jobs, America. Being presudential, comforting natural disaster victims.

          If he wants to play offense, how about a town hall with Angel Moms and Dads? (Parents with children killed by illegal immigrants.) That helps advance The Wall, his agenda, and the opiods crisis. If he loses the House in 9 months, things become significantly harder, and odds are high he will be impeached.

              Trump needs to maintain as much of the middle as possible. Every President has a certain level of fatigue with voters. A few tweets are fine. We can agree to disagree. I think he could learn to let his pawns or bishops fight battles sometimes, and not suck the air out of his message – The Wall, infrastructure, etc.

    Sessions is a knee jerk issue. The same people that believed 100 % of the research Peter Schweizer did on The Clinton Cash– no one has contested the information he uncovered, this same Schweizer published author-wrote. Throw Them All Out, a detailed examination of political corruption as it is actually practiced in the halls of Congress.

    In his investigation, Schweizer found one single member of Congress against whom no allegations could be held – who had never taken a dime that was not his, had never cut any backroom deals, had never, simply put, played the game.

    That individual was Jeff Sessions.

  44. As usual, a superb summary.

    If I may add a point or two:

    1. I have seen repeated references to a requirement that IG Horowitz issue his report before the prosecuting attorney (Sessions’ “Senior DOJ Official”) can issue grand jury subpoenae. In my experience, this would not be the case.

    2. Typically, the case agents (whether from IG, or FBI etc.) arrange to meet the prosecutor(s), and the team outlines and agrees on a prosecution plan. This is informal. Maybe more “friendly” interviews of witnesses will be suggested, or perhaps some surveillance etc. The agents will prepare investigative reports at each step in the investigation, such as interviews, polygraph results, etc. These reports are called “ROI” by most agencies, and FD-302 reports by the FBI.

    3. NO federal prosecutor wants to be presented with a fait accompli “final report” from any agency, as the starting point of her case. (Interim reports are fine.) The hallmark of federal prosecutions is or should be the close working relationship between prosecutors and agents, including state or local officers assigned to the federal team. This relationship is critical right through trial, as it is the agents who help to locate and prep grand jury and trial witnesses. While the prosecutor is the case director, the smart federal prosecutor (and that is most of ‘em) understands that it is a collaborative process, and everyone on the team needs to be in the informational and decisional loop, from the first meeting, through the grand jury process and trial, to the final sentencing hearing.

    4. The serious “limiter” in a federal case is the Statute of Limitations for the offenses committed. However, once the first grand jury subpoena goes out, the word spreads rapidly among the affected community (targets, etc.) and their lawyers. Some will call the U.S. Attorney and request a “proffer” with their client and the team. Others will get the office document shredder cleaned and serviced.

    5. All by way of saying that the prosecutor/agents team might work together for quite some time. There is no sharp “cutoff” between the federal investigators’ work and the prosecutor’s work. Quite the contrary. Mr. Horowitz’ final report is not a condition precedent to sending out the party invitations.

      Thank you, sir. Informative and helpful. A few questions.

      1. If a prosecutor files charges, is it most likely one from the DOJ?
      2. What are the typical SOL for some of the alleged crimes? Five years?
      3. From our outsiders view, what alleged illegal acts are still fair game? Hillary email server, Uranium One, FISAGate, unmasking Americans? There appear to be so many large, interwoven issues.
      4. Could it be a huge issue like Uranium One acts SOL have expired, but illegal acts to cover it up have their own SOL?
      5. Would these alleged crimes go before a DC jury or a DC Judge? Or might a more objective jury be impanelled in Arizona or Utah?

      Thank you for your time and expertise.

      • 1. This will be a prosecutor who is either a “main justice” lawyer from the Crim Division in D.C., or a sitting U.S. Attorney in one of the 92-93 districts.
        2. You are correct, typical SOL is five years. There are some crimes with 10 year or more SOL, but not so many.
        3. All illegal acts are fair game if they fall within the SOL. That includes Hilly’s email server etc. Comey’s former “pass” for Clinton is not binding on the government and has no preclusive effect to a prosecution now. However, it is important that any indictment be focused and specific, and not a “shotgun” charge. This is because co-defendants accused on one count/scheme will challenge improper or prejudicial “joinder” with defendants who are changed in the same indictment, but on a different count(s) with a different scheme (such as Uranium + FISA).
        4. Prosecutors will charge “conspiracy” to overcome SOL, by alleging acts in furtherance of the conspiracy that fall within the SOL (attempts at cover-up, etc.) The so-called “overt acts” need not be illegal in themselves, so long as they were “in furtherance” and w/i five years of indictment. Usually not a problem for the U.S. Attorney.
        5. “Venue” is an issue, so the case must relate somehow to the “forum” or judicial district where the indictment is brought. “Venue” is a Constitutional-based defense, but a weak one; however, in recent years the appeals courts have held that some “venue” must be established to sustain the prosecution. Not necessarily DC district court, by any means. And the “conspiracy” charge widens the venue opportunities. Utah or Arizona would be appropriate if something relevant happened there, but overt “forum shopping” is not permitted. .

        Hope this helps.

    If Sundance is right about the IG working with an outside the beltway federal prosecutor, and that prosecutor has already formed a Grand Jury, I would think they would start with the low-hanging fruit of crimes with indisputable evidence, such as Bruce and Nellie Ohr, Strzok and Page, and Carlin and Baker. Some of these may join Priestap in testifying against the rest of the conspirators. Then they could work their way up to Yates, Lynch, Comey and eventually Obama. What complicates things is that there are at least three separate criminal conspiracies: Hillary Clinton’s exoneration, illegal spying on American citizens (potentially going back to 2012), and conspiring to undermine a duly elected and sitting president.

    As far as AG Sessions, I’m still undecided, but I’m willing to give the benefit of the doubt. It is entirely possible that he is indeed going about this very carefully so as to make sure that when indictments do come that they have an airtight case and a methodical investigative process to point to, which even as the media tries to discredit, will stand up under even the toughest scrutiny.

    That’s possible…but it’s also possible that Sessions is weak and feckless and only took action with McCabe because the IG and OPR gave him the cover to do so.

    I really hope it’s the first example, and as I said, I’m willing to believe the best.
