“Small Group” Leadership Andrew McCabe Coordinated Investigations of Incoming Trump Administration Officials…

Republican congressman from Arizona Andy Biggs. interviewed on Fox News today, begins to question the ongoing relevance and purpose of the Mueller investigation.

This interview happens at the same time ABC is reporting that fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe instructed his “small group” collaborators to investigate Attorney General Jeff Sessions in March of 2017.

Nearly a year before Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired senior FBI official Andrew McCabe for what Sessions called a “lack of candor,” McCabe oversaw a federal criminal investigation into whether Sessions lacked candor when testifying before Congress about contacts with Russian operatives, sources familiar with the matter told ABC News. (read more)

It should be emphasized the timeline of this ABC report is in March, 2017.  At the time outlined all of the corrupt “small group” political operatives were still working diligently on utilization of their “Insurance Policy” against the incoming administration.  FBI Agent Peter Strzok, FBI Attorney Lisa Page, FBI Legal Counsel James Baker, along with FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe were coordinating the groups’ efforts.

Via ABC – […]  One source told ABC News that Sessions was not aware of the investigation when he decided to fire McCabe last Friday less than 48 hours before McCabe, a former FBI deputy director, was due to retire from government and obtain a full pension, but an attorney representing Sessions declined to confirm that.

Last year, several top Republican and Democratic lawmakers were informed of the probe during a closed-door briefing with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and McCabe, ABC News was told.  (read more)

Staying on this timeline, this period of 2017 (March, April, May) was when FBI Chief Legal Counsel James Baker (now removed) was working on putting together the ancillary “small group” team for alternate deployment onto the Mueller team.  Peter Strzok and Lisa Page were central characters in this ancillary, and specialized, group.

Strzok and Page were removed in July 2017, after Inspector General Michael Horowitz interceded and informed Robert Mueller of the blatant bias he had identified, along with the strong possibility of unlawful manipulation of their investigative intent.

The behaviors outlined by ongoing reports and research show the evolution of the “small group” objectives after the inauguration.

    • Howie also said a couple of months ago…

      “The solution is very simple — we have the DEA take over all federal police functions, just like they did with the Whitey Bulger investigation here in Boston because the FBI was too corrupt to be trusted. Maybe the U.S. Marshals could help out, too. They’re a lot better at finding fugitives than Famous But Incompetent.

      Abolishing the FBI may sound like a radical solution, but they have metastasized into a clear and present danger to the Republic.

      Think about Zip Connolly ­— “decorated” FBI agent now doing life in a Florida prison for a gangland hit in Florida. Or H. Paul Rico, another G-man who died in a prison hospital in Oklahoma after being arrested for yet another organized-crime rubout in Oklahoma. And this is just the Boston office, where gangster Stevie Flemmi told the DEA that he and Whitey Bulger were bribing six — six! —agents.

      Boston, the same FBI office where the agents knew that a hood named Teddy Deegan was going to be hit, and by whom. Yet they let it happen and then allowed four innocent men to be framed for the murder in order to protect the serial-killing brother of Flemmi, who after all was paying them all off.

      As evil as all this stuff is, it pales in comparison to what it now appears was an attempted coup by the top brass of the FBI.”

      Yes, just listened to Howie interviewing a former Mass. Parole Board member relating to the frame of 4 Mafia guys in Boston, curtesy of the FBI and US Atty office in Boston. Mueller was there at the beginning, but was complicit in continuing the conspiracy, by writing to the state parole board to keep the guys in prison. Eventually the truth came out (thanks to another US Atty., John Durham, brought in from Ct. The Feds paid over $100 million to the 4 Mafia guys (2 had already died)….so this is no BS story. Does not speak well of Mueller. Will try to link the podcast of the interview.

    The Mueller Special Counsel investigation now turning to obstruction is the old dirty cop routine. It is just like the dirty cop who will stop an individual for, at best, a trumped up reason, individual resists, maybe even lashes out. NOW, we some crimes, resisting arrest, striking an officer, battery, assault, to name a few. Mueller is doing the same thing. POTUS obstructed. How? Why he fired a dirty FBI Director. That Director was doing his job investigating him, and now he can’t, so POTUS obstructed.
    The MSM and the Democrats/Progressives believe that the voting public is dumb and does not see this. If Mueller is fired by POTUS, AG Sessions, or the Congress, GOOD RIDDENENCE. There will be no backlash on POTUS.
    But we as supporters and voters cannot be complacent in November. The heart and soul of this magnificent country is at stake.

          I tend to think that if the Flynn plea and charges are blown up as a result of McCabe’s bad acts, that would be the end of Mueller’s probe. It would be unassailable proof of the corrupt nature of official actions and coupled with the Strzok texts as Mueller’s head investigator that would yield public pressure to end it that Rosenstein could not ignore. I’ve wondered whether since Rosenstein signed off on the last Fisa warrant, he might have a basis for saying HE had been mislead by all the bad actors including McCabe and that now that its apparent to him that he was wrong to have signed off on it, he’s blameless for being misled and is now correcting the entire fruit of the poisonous tree problem by shutting it down. Strzok’s wrongdoing and malicious motive is unassailable and if the IG’s report is a powerful and conclusive indictment of McCabe, then Rosentein has a window to hop through.

            Rosenstein has no basis for claiming ignorance. By the time he signed off on the warrant extension, it was common knowledge that Hillary and the DNC were behind the dossier and the FISA application. Besides, he had an affirmative obligation to investigate to make sure all the facts he was attesting to were true. He didn’t.

            He clearly is a suspect in a crime and should be under investigation. It’s amazing that nothing has happened to him and that he is still supervising the investigation of Trump. Jeff Sessions should be asked why nothing has happened to Rosenstein. Sessions appears to be covering for him.

      YES!!! Rosenstein signed the last FISA court application, and he certainly had to know that the basis for that warrant application was bogus as all hell. Also, when appointing Mueller as SP, Rosey didn’t lay out probable cause that a crime had been committed. Moreover, his commission for Mueller was so broad that it amounts to a blank check to search for anything that he could misconstrue as a crime. Mueller has subsequently shown that he is not at all hesitant to employ strong arm tactics to force a confession from anyone affiliated with the Trump team. Of course, with a mountain of evidence that the Clinton campaign DOD collude with foreign agents to affect the election, Mueller let’s all that pass him by.

      Now we see Rosey standing mute, showing absolutely no institutional control over Mueller. There are only two possible ways to see Rosenstein. Either he is corrupt as he’ll or he is an incompetent boob. Given that an incompetent boob has about as much chance of rising to Deputy Attorney General as a snowflake has of falling on the Sahara Desert when surface temperatures are 130 degrees Fahrenheit, I’d say that the only reasonable conclusion is that Rosey is crooked as hell.

        1+1 seems like 2 to me also.

        My problem is where does ‘crooked’ stop and screwed up begin? Mueller loading the bench up with DhimmiRat thugs puts Rosenstein who is in control in the crooked lineup. Sessions with ‘two smart by half’ recusal gave away control to Rosenstein.

        Sessions has the right to kick Rosenstein out for not recusing himself due to the dirty FISA warrant that started the witch hunt. But of course the possibility that Sessions has his non DC DOJ prosecutor engaged might make this a convoluted tale.

                Perhaps that is part of the hold-up in the IG’s report. There could be one mass pre-dawn raid on a bunch of residences, with Rosenstein’s being one. (I’d REALLY love to see a pre-dawn raid on Mueller’s home!) The amount of security necessary to keep such action from leaking to Rosenstein would be immense, and could be part of why it is taking time to get the IG’s report out.

        Rosenstein is a criminal suspect for the signing a false warrant extension. He should be under investigation by the OIG and DOJ’s OPR. But for some unexplained reason, he doesn’t seem to be. If he were under investigation, it doesn’t seem like he would still be supervising the Mueller probe.

        Mueller is protection for Rosenstein. So long as Mueller’s around and the focus is on Trump, the focus isn’t on Rosenstein and the part he played in the FISA fiasco.

As an indication of whether or not McVeigh was correct, when the government finally got the real Gutherie behind bars, Gutherie allegedly hanged himself in his cell.

    Excerpt:

    “The Special Counsel‘s Office has informed me that after interviewing the Attorney General and conducting additional investigation, the Attorney General is not under investigation for false statements or perjury in his confirmation hearing testimony and related written submissions to Congress,” attorney Chuck Cooper said in a statement.

    Sources close to Sessions told Fox News that the attorney general had no idea he may have been under investigation for perjury when he fired McCabe last week.

    ABC News reported that lawmakers from both parties were told that Sessions was being investigated during a closed-door briefing with McCabe and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein last year.

    Justice Department officials told Fox News that they could not confirm the substance of the briefing, but said it occurred in May 2017 and “McCabe did all the talking.”

      On occasions, Wikipedia can be one’s friend:

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Mueller#Legal_career

      ‘After serving as a partner at the Boston law firm of Hill and Barlow, Mueller returned to government service. In 1989, he served in the United States Department of Justice as an assistant to Attorney General Dick Thornburgh and as acting deputy Attorney General. James Baker, with whom he worked on national security matters, said he had “…an appreciation for the Constitution and the rule of law.”[27] The following year he took charge of its criminal division.[18] During his tenure, he oversaw prosecutions including that of Panamanian leader Manuel Noriega, the Pan Am Flight 103 (Lockerbie bombing) case, and of the Gambino crime family boss John Gotti. In 1991, he was elected a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers.[6]

      ‘In 1993, Mueller became a partner at Boston’s Hale and Dorr, specializing in white-collar crime litigation.[18] He returned to public service in 1995 as senior litigator in the homicide section of the District of Columbia United States Attorney’s Office. In 1998, Mueller was named U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of California and held that position until 2001.[6]’

      For security reasons, Admiral Rogers’s bio is much briefer:

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_S._Rogers#2000s

      ‘During the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, Rogers joined the military’s Joint Staff, which works for the Joint Chiefs of Staff, where he specialized in computer network attacks. From 2007 onward he served as director of intelligence for the military’s Pacific Command. In 2009, he became director of intelligence for the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and was subsequently named commander of U.S. Fleet Cyber Command and commander of the U.S. 10th Fleet, with responsibility for all of the Navy’s cyberwarfare efforts.[5] As such, Rogers was the first restricted line officer to serve as a numbered fleet commander and the first Information Warfare Community (IWC) officer to achieve the rank of vice admiral.[7]’

    Irrespective of Mueller and Sessions’ relationship, it was the FBI that ordered McCabe’s firing. They made it clear that McCabe had lied, lied repeatedly, and lied under oath. Losing his pension is the least of McCabe’s worries. He either rats out his pal Comey, Lynch, Clinton, and Obama or he will be losing his freedom.

    “Republican congressman from Arizona Andy Biggs. interviewed on Fox News today, begins to question the ongoing relevance and purpose of the Mueller investigation.”

    Mr. Biggs, just beginning to question the foolishness, is bigly late to the big game. Apparently, he has been in a coma. Perhaps he realized he had better get into he caboose before the Trump train leaves him at the Doubterville station. Politicos like him make my hair hurt.

      Yes, Mr. Biggs is a very late arrival to the game. But I’m of the old adage, “better late than never”. There are simply many people who need much more evidence laid out in front of them before they are persuaded of the truth. Doubting Thomases. Those who are generally “early adopters” and can connect dots that are very far apart, need to do the work of assembling the evidence and presenting it in more convincing ways so as to eventually bring more of the Mr. Biggs-type folks onto our side. It’s a fact of life.

Absent Sundance’s efforts, I daresay that many of us, myself included, probably would not be anywhere near our current level of understanding of what has been happening.

      Seems to me we are in a race to see whose narrative will get more airtime. firing Mueller is “constitutional crisis”, or firing Mueller is needed because it was set up for biased or even corrupt purposes.

      The MSM have been all over the first, I think to inoculate Mueller from any oversight. It won’t matter WHO fires him.. it will be because Trump made them do it… no getting around that one I don’t care how many facts are used.

      The only way I see Mueller’s witch hunt ending is for it to happen behind the scenes with pressure from RR. Now, Sessions could be putting ole Rod in that spot, by now having this information that was used against him.

      Im now convinced RR and Mueller are black hats. Sessions can’t do anything publicly, but I would say after the IG report comes out, and the truth behind all the crimes committed by the past “group”, the time will be ripe for Wray and RR to do it. Combine Mueller in with the group. Or even say, its apparent the guidelines NOT to include anything on Hillary side is proof it was biased from the start.

    It is going to be interesting to see if comey and mcabe try to stick together or throw each under the bus. Bill was thrown under the bus by comey, letting everyone see that comey will throw you under the bus. Then comey was supportive of mcabe when he came under fire but when push came to shove mccabe threw comey under the bus with “I was just following orders and everybody knew and approved of what I was doing and I had the authority to do it anyway” defense that contradicted comey’s testimony to congress. Sort of looks like mccabe doesn’t trust comey or it is everyman for himself.

    EX-LEAHY STAFFER PROVIDES JUDICIAL OVERSIGHT FOR RUSSIA INVESTIGATION
    POSTED ON AUGUST 10, 2017 BY PAUL MIRENGOFF

    http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2017/08/ex-leahy-staffer-provides-judicial-oversight-for-russia-investigation.php

    -snip-

    The Daily Beast reports that Judge Beryl Howell is the jurist who signed off on Robert Mueller’s request to convene a Washington, D.C. grand jury for the Russia investigation. It also says that, going forward, Howell “will be the umpire-in-chief: deciding whether or not Trump allies’ lawyers can quash subpoenas, and whether or not people like Jared Kushner can invoke what’s known as executive privilege to get out of testifying under oath before Mueller’s grand jury.”

    -snip-

    -snip-

    The other potential problem with Howell is her close association with a member of Mueller’s team — Andrew Weissmann. The two worked together as assistant U.S. attorneys in the Eastern District of New York. That by itself wouldn’t be problematic. However, according to the Daily Beast, the two co-authored an article in 2006 about (of all things) obstruction of justice.

    How could Sessions not be aware of the investigation seeing that Mueller interviewed him two months ago? If Mueller questioned Sessions in any way about his controversial statements at his confirmation hearing, or asked him the pointed questions you would expect in a perjury investigation, Sessions would have quickly picked up on the fact he was under investigation. Did Rosenstein never tell Sessions he was under investigation? Hard to believe.

    Sessions had to know his statements before Congress would be an issue in Mueller’s collusion investigation and that Mueller might indict him. Mueller didn’t interview Sessions until two months ago. I wonder how having that cloud of uncertainty hang over his head for eight months influenced Sessions conduct and decision making regarding what kind of investigations to conduct re the DOJ and FBI and the specific people to investigate and to what extent, e.g. Rosenstein. It was almost like a blackmail situation where Mueller and Rosenstein exercised a certain level of influence over Sessions and his decisions. In that kind of a situation, would Sessions have been more loyal to Trump or to Mueller? This is another reason why instead of recusing himself Sessions should have resigned imo. Sessions was simply too compromised to be AG.

    It’s interesting that Mueller was hard nosed with Flynn over a statement about a lawful act that his interviewers found to be truthful, while that same standard was not applied to Sessions.

    As I’ve said before, the so-called “small group” didn’t act alone. Strzock didn’t do the wiretapping all by himself. There had to have been hundreds of people involved: agents, analysts, technicians, translators, etc. Everyone involved in the domestic surveillance operation knew that Trump was the real target and that this was about taking him down. “Just following orders” quit being a valid excuse many years ago. The conspiracy is a lot bigger than the core group. And by the way, I believe the FISA judges were in on it too.

    “The integrity of the “investigation” and of the “investigators” must be a paramount priority in our criminal justice system at all times,” said David Schoen, a civil rights and defense attorney, who has been outspoken on the special counsel investigation. “Certainly this fundamental guiding principle must be followed when it comes to an investigation of the duly elected President of the United States. The outcome potentially affects every one of us in very real terms…There were many alternatives to Mr. Mueller and his team and all of their very troubling baggage.”
    “(Mueller and Weissmann) were both connected to two of the biggest scandals in FBI history,” Schoen added.
