Maria Bartiromo Interviews Alan Dershowitz About Andrew McCabe Firing and FBI Corruption…

Harvard Law Professor Emeritus, Alan Dershowitz, appears with Maria Bartiromo to discuss the DOJ firing FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. It’s a wide-ranging interview hitting on multiple angles of the ongoing issues at the top of the FBI and Dept of Justice.

.

One of the common misunderstandings as highlighted within the interview is the 1.2 million investigative documents held by the Office of Inspector General, Michael Horowitz.

First, a massive amount of the ‘pages’ are likely transcripts from the Peter Strzok and Lisa Page text messages; as well as the likelihood of emails and other communications within the “small group” (co-conspirators) inside the DOJ and FBI.

Second, everyone seems to overlook that much of the evidence collected by IG Horowitz may also be evidence of criminality by those within the “small group”. As such the criminal evidence would NOT be, and SHOULD NOT be, released to congress because the assigned prosecutor would be using it for cases against those outlined in the investigation.

I know it seems frustrating, but there is a normal and methodical investigative process which needs to be followed; and criminal evidence needs to be closely guarded until the targets therein are indicted.

    I agree but if it doesn’t happen before the 2018 elections we could lose so much, we need voters to wake up and they clearly aren’t right now. The narrative has to change big time before then or it will be bad the way things are now. We have to have faith they have a plan and it will all work out somehow.

      Some people don’t think illegals and dead etc…aren’t voting. I am completely convinced it is playing a big part in our elections. PA doesn’t have voter id for example. That in itself is enough to allow so much fraud. Trying to patient on that front as well…

        There is also the fight in PA over a court imposing it’s own redistricting map because they did not like the one the legislature did, when the state constitution gives the authority to the legislature. Time to start working on the removal of these lawless activist judges.

        In upstate WNY, you don’t need photo ID. We go to polling district we are registered in and give name. The poll workers look up your name. you have to sign your name in order to vote -there is a sample and record of signature that worker compares before you get your ballot.
        Then you fill out paper ballot, take it over to machine that reads it and saves paper copy in secure bin. Machine totals have to be called in by phone to HQ.

        I’ve been saying California trashed the 26,000 mail-in votes but just last night I ran across the fact that the ACLU sued the State of California for trashing 46,000 ballots, claiming the signatures on the ballots didn’t match the ones on the Registration. So the HRC claim of winning the Popular Vote is BS, but I’ve yet to argue with a Democrat who will relinquish Hillary’s position as the “rightful President”!

            Wondering999, thanks for the great lead. I had read two different stories; One said 26,000 mail-in ballots were trashed because the number of For HRC votes were such that it would require MORE than the 26,000 mail-ins to swing the election to Trump. The ACLU article i read said that 42,000 ballots were trashed for mismatching signature. So 68,000 total? I am now going to follow up on mine. They color code envelopes used by mail-in voters, I assume so they know whether a republican or a democrat ballot is enclosed.They have been on a 3 year campaign to get ALL voters to do it by mail-in.

        2017’s elections and the recent special elections have been heavily influenced by the rich elites putting millions of dollars into getting out the vote.

        Not just running ad campaigns, but if collecting, transporting and delivering leftist voters to vote locations.

        What is unknown are:
        • how many are transported to multiple vote locations,
        • how many are legal voters that actually live where they are registered to vote.

        Just the money expended towards collecting and transporting urban neighborhoods to voting locations swamps elections.

        Virginia suffered this during the 2017 election when voter turnouts are evaluated district by district. Neighborhoods that traditionally turnout voters in the low 40s are suddenly seeing 70+ percent vote.
        What portion are legal voters is unknown.

    “criminal evidence needs to be closely guarded until the targets therein are indicted.”

    True. But, all of it will be shared w/the defendant’s lawyer. Some think that prosecutors keep all this evidence to themselves and spring it on the defendant at the last min. during the trial.

    Some of the reasons for keeping it closely guarded before an indictment is so that the targeted criminal cannot start destroying evidence or formulating alibis or influencing witnesses or taking actions that would stymie the investigators. There are many more reasons but those are some. And the collection of evidence by both sides does not end w/an indictment. Often times, really good evidence not discovered prior to an indictment is discovered after an indictment. Especially w/regards to witnesses and those co-conspirators willing to cut a deal once their partners in crime have been indicted. In fact, often the deals for testifying against others only happens after an indictment(s) are made.

    It ain’t over ’til it’s over.

      What you say is ABSOLUTELY CORRECT…HOWEVER, as SD has pointed out, the LEGAL process will be followed and since there are so many scumbags that need to be taken down here is how I think it plays out. ALL ACCORDING TO LAW…The perp is indicted, he is picked, he is taken to a place where there is a grand jury, judge and prosecutor. He is given time to get an attorney. He will be put into a room with his attorney and the prosecutor will come in and layout the undisputable facts and a choice will be given. Don’t forget this will be occurring quite a few times, but the idea is, they are given a “Come to Jesus” moment. IF ANYONE of them take a JURY trial that is when things get interesting because they will ask for a change of venue. That ain’t happen, no reason to and the defense attorney can’t judge/jury shop…PDJT and AG Sessions KNOW that this is a ONE SHOT THING TO GET EVERYONE INVOLVED IN THE SHADY PRACTICES. And they will do it ALL ACCORDING TO THE LAW!!!

        Then
        Interviews afterwards usually include both an AUSA & the case Special Agent & if requested, the defense attorney in the AUSA’s office. That’s where he’s told what all he’s looking at & tries not to pee-pee in his pants.;-)

      I’m annoyed by Dershowitz calling for an independent, non-partisan, commission, too.

      It seems he knows what went down, knows there was criminality, knows that the Constitution was ignored and people’s right were violated, but also knows how badly this damage the Democrats and Obama – hence he wants it to be handled by some group that will issue a report after two years and nobody will face any prosecution for their crimes.

      Here’s an idea Alan; run the investigations, prosecute the criminals at trial, and then, after it’s all been adjudicated, have your commission investigate and report after the smoke has cleared. Seems simple enough to me.

      Dershowitz seems to be purposefully naive in order to hide his own partisanship, and I only give him credit for not being a complete tool and leftist hack because he admits that the facts don’t add up and there was some degree of corruption at the highest levels of law enforcement and the intelligence community during the Obama years.

      The commission in his mind , I assume, is the lesser of all evil it can keep Hillary and others out of jail but still their wrongdoing will be recounted in history books. I get what he trying to do and I do not fault him because he knows and I believe is apprehensive how it affects this country.

      If the investigation is not being done in good faith, it is used to stonewall information requests, and make it look like a scandal is being properly handled.

      At this point, people only have opinions one way or the other as to how the investigations are going.

        Compare Joe’s no-nonsense factual based way of looking at this compared to Dershowitz, who is lost in the weeds of delay, delay, delay. I will always listen when I see an Alan Dershowitz video, he’s a smart guy, and he generally makes some good points, but he does tend to wander back to the liberal plantation fairly readily.

          In my experience employing attorneys over the years, there seems to be two kinds. There is the Dershowitz kind, who take an expansive view of available information, and add a lot of unnecessary possibilities into the situation. And then there is the kind that bores in on the key facts and makes the necessary information more concise and focused. I much prefer the second type. A good example would be Marcia Clark and Chris Darden during the OJ trial. It was said afterward that their mistake was, since they knew the big things, they thought they knew all the small things, and that’s what tripped them up.

            Dershowitz strikes me as a massively “conflicted” personality. Most everything he has been saying publicly is spot on … esp. as regards the institutional attack on the 1st Amendment. However, he also always taints his learned legal opinion with some laughably leftist bias. He’s like the big brother who snitches to dad about his siblings misbehavior … but then reminds everyone that he thinks dad is “mean” too.

    WASHINGTON — Joseph DiGenova, a former U.S. attorney and occasional commentator on Fox News, will join President Donald Trump’s legal team, his attorneys announced Monday, signaling a more confrontational approach to the investigation headed by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III.

    DiGenova will start this week, according to a statement released by Jay Sekulow, one of the lawyers representing Trump in the Mueller investigation.

    “I have worked with Joe for many years and have full confidence that he will be a great asset in our representation of the president.,” Sekulow said.

    Like Sekulow and John Dowd, DiGenova will act as a personal attorney for Trump, not a White House lawyer. Another attorney, Ty Cobb, works on the White House staff handling matters related to the Mueller investigation.

    DiGenova, 73, was U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia during the Reagan administration. He’s been outspoken in his belief that FBI and Justice Department officials plotted against Trump during the 2016 campaign.

    Some Trump allies have urged the president to be more combative with the special counsel, an impulse that became public over the weekend when Dowd publicly said that Mueller’s investigation should be ended.

    Cobb later issued a statement saying that Trump is not considering firing Mueller

He is up to speed on everything that is happening and was the first one to use the phrase “frame President Trump” regarding the treasonous cabal’s objectives. He also speaks frequently about the fruit of the poisonous tree legal aspect of the case.

    It is frustrating not to see all of the information that the FBI and DOJ certainly possess. But equally frustrating through the years have been all of the congressional hearings that go absolutely nowhere. We had hearings on Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the IRS scandal (with Lois Lerner and later John Koskinen appearing before congress). That’s just a starter pack on congressional investigations that have gone nowhere. In every case, they are viewed from the left as Republicans searching for an opportunity to nail Dems simply for partisan gain. From the right (which truly has double meaning), they are failed efforts to hold people accountable for real scandals because partisans in the executive branch have stonewalled congress.

    So, now we see the executive branch stonewalling congress, even as it is the President and people near the President who have been harmed by the previous executive (partisans around the Community Organizer in Chief). Because of past stonewalling, and the perception of layer upon layer in the federal bureaucracy who are adept at keeping information away from oversight, it is difficult to have faith that anything has really changed. But as slowly as the wheels of justice seem to grind (especially when you have a media that is antagonistic to the truth), we have seen evidence that the cabal which was formed against POTUS is reaping what they have sowed. It seems to be taking far too long, and the wait allows Mueller to continue the work of his BFF as an adversary to President Trump.

    I see (dimly) the position of Sundance. It is just very difficult to have the confidence to sit tight and wait the battle when truth FINALLY TRIUMPHS over the dark forces that have been at work for a very long time.

      Congressional hearings under the Obama Admin. failed to go anywhere because Obama’s DOJ was the brick wall every one of them ran up against. Each of those hearings you mentioned uncovered the truth and plenty of evidence for further inquiry by an UNCORRUPTED DOJ.

        Oh, I fully agree. As I said, “they (previous congressional hearings) are failed efforts to hold people accountable for real scandals because partisans in the executive branch have stonewalled congress.” But there is still concern that many of Obama’s legion remain entrenched in the bureaucracy. That is a major reason WHY the effort to restore law and order and accountability proceeds at a snail’s pace.

        And all the while, Mueller is free to employ his strong arm tactics against Flynn, Manafort, and others. And now, Mueller has set his sights more directly on POTUS. The cabal operates quite brazenly with the support of the propaganda arm of the Uniparty while the white hats have to proceed slowly and meticulously to build their case. This is an epic showdown, very much like the final battle in Lord of the Rings. The suspense, observing the dark forces coalesce with few resources to oppose the dark forces other than truth and honor on the right, brings suspense that the dark forces WILL PREVAIL.

        Let’s put it this way: Had Donald Trump not been elected President, the Uniparty would have stood in victory, likely never to be challenged again. Electing Trump was the narrow opportunity to defeat Sauron, and Sauron is marshaling every resource at his disposal to crush Trump before he can finally expose Sauron’s vulnerability. The suspense is killing me!

  19. This isn’t a normal investigation. What has been uncovered here is treason. A standard criminal prosecution is not the appropriate process. There won’t be another legitimate election unless or until this business is exposed and the treasonous conspirators are rounded up and dealt with in the manner traitors have been, and ought to be dealt with. It’s an investigation, like it or not, with a hard deadline: the 2018 midterms.

    If there were a purpose for a commission it might be limited to a transparency role, I.e., given power to see everything the DOJ/FBI has but is withholding from the public, and to make an independent ruling whether the public’s need to know outweighs the often tactical reasons prosecutors want to control access to their evidence. Maybe Congress could authorize such a commission to override any and all normal reasons for withholding it in favor of letting the public get to the bottom of it, unencumbered by the usual FOIA processes and subject to waiting out statutes of limitations on various crimes that may or may not get prosecuted.

    I kinda like Alan Dershowitz, not all the time, but every once in a while I say to myself, hmmm he has a point.. This thing with him about a non partisan commission, to investigate all of this…SMH,,, There are committees in the house, in the senate, they have been investigating and calling witnesses, and writing memos, until the cows came home…. They are bi partisan, which is politspeak for bi polar… seriously, they might as well be two separate committees…
    Where in our tattered government can you find anything that is non partisan… WHERE???
    So, I would tell him… hey, Mr. Dershowitz, I would like a unicorn,,, but it isn’t happening…and, that being said,,,

    SD: I know it seems frustrating, but there is a normal and methodical investigative process which needs to be followed; and criminal evidence needs to be closely guarded until the targets therein are indicted.

    I can wait.. although what I find personally frustrating is the cacophony of calls to take short cuts with this system. Do it right, make it stick…

  31. Sundance, I haven’t noticed you (may have missed it) mention one specific item that ties to why people like Strzok and Page are still employed whereas McCabe was just officially fired, namely that the Inspector General does not have authority to interview people who are no longer DOJ employees.

    As long as Priestap, Ohr, et al remain employed, Horowitz can interview them very easily. The moment any are fired, he loses the ability to do so. The fact the OPR recommended firing McCabe suggests they no longer thought he was providing useful information (whether or not he ever provided any utility in the first place).

    The moment any of them are fired, it becomes much, much more difficult to interview them, as well as far harder to control the process or hide the fact they’re being interviewed. If the goal here is along the lines you’ve insinuated, with the “Stealth Executioner” keeping it quiet while gathering the needed information, this would explain a lot.

    It’s interesting that Sztrok’s text messages have become available and McCabe’s have not. Sztrok still has a job and McCabe doesn’t. It seems pretty likely Sztrok has turned on McCabe and told them everything. I read through the entire chain of text messages that were made public (at the original release) and it would not surprise me if Sztrok didn’t see the light rather quickly when confronted by the reality of his actions. I got the impression after reading the entire release of texts that Stzrok was definitely not a leader of any sort of conspiracy but somewhat of a over eager type that had his loyalty to the FBI as an institution and McCabe as an individual used to blind him to the reality of what he was doing.

If I recall correctly, as much as he badmouthed Bush, he never agreed with those who wanted to see him and others brought up on charges (for war crimes and others). If he was forced to admit that Obama was just as bad in some ways, Dershowitz would almost certainly say the same about him. I bet he was one of those calling for “reconciliation” in Rwanda rather than full-out criminal trials against those monsters. In other words, Dersh is the type that thinks sometimes justice, REAL, FULL justice, can do more harm than good. (I totally disagree, by the way.)
