HPSCI Chairman Devin Nunes Discusses IG Horowitz, Subpoenas, FISA Abuse, Oversight and Impeachment…

House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) Chairman Devin Nunes appears on Fox News to discuss the ongoing investigations into the FBI and DOJ along with the numerous tentacles that have surfaced in the last several months.

.

Remember, less than 10% of the American public have any idea the scale and scope of the Obama administration using the intelligence community to conduct surveillance of the Trump campaign… including the FISA(702) abuse and the manipulations within the FISA Title-1 surveillance application(s).

Additionally, to add a little context to the latest IG announcement of an investigation into FISA Court abuse by the DOJ and FBI, remember it was only a few short months ago when the institutional media were labeling any discussion therein as “conspiracy theory.”

.

“WHY” – The first video highlights the historic backdrop of DOJ/FBI FISA court abuses:

.

“HOW” – The second video highlights the specific example of how the DOJ and FBI used false information to the FISA Court to secure a fraudulent ‘Title-1’ surveillance warrant:

.

“WHO” – The third video highlights who the primary players were within the scheme:

      Was it Nunes today that said we’ve been asking the DOJ and FBI for documents since 2016?

      Someone suggested we send in Federal Marshalls. How could we do this? Lock up some top brass? Have some IT pros go in so ee can backup all records? This is unacceptable.

      Sessions doubled staff producing documents? Quadruple staff, and get a progress update in 2 weeks.

      Justice delayed, justice denied?

        I was shocked at how many subpoenas he said had been sent already. Somebody (Rosey) has been stalling and slowing things way down. That could be to cover up, slow down the investigation, or, because they don’t want to release it because a grand jury is hearing evidence already.

            I really think that the Dossier was originally created by and for Hillary on her Husband, while he was making $500k speeches in Russia (all the bed wetting and such is much more up Bill’s alley than something a normal human would do) and all they did was change the name to Trump – highlight,cntl-C, Highlight, cntl-V. Done. Dossier now reads that Donald Trump is the sub-human, rather than the original perpetrator – William Jefferson Clinton. It’s not in the least salacious, It’s just Bill doing his thing. Change it to Trump and blammo, you now have a dossier based on real events, that is only a partial lie. Much easier than producing something out of thin air. Only the names were changed to accuse the innocent.

        Just thinking out loud here but perhaps there is another good reason NOT to appoint a special counsel at least publically. Insiders of this FISAgate cabal such as Strozk, Page, McCabe, Comey, Brennan, Lynch, Holder and let’s not kid ourselves, IF the White House CofS knew…Obama knew. I think it naive to think otherwise, not to mention the very purpose of “wiretapping” spying on the Trump campaign was to give HRC information to help her win; after losing to discredit the Trump agenda. Hillary’s close campaign team (Podesta,Huma, Mook, Beneson, Palmieri, Fallon, Hammon — maybe others) likely knew the details of what Trump was doing during the campaign. Perhaps this is why it so critical to destroy the bleachbit hard drives, hammers and all? But the purpose of AG Sessions NOT publicly announcing a special counsel to look into FISA gate and NOT announcing that a grand jury is is in place, was and still is to make sure that the many members of this “corrupt cabal” of DOJ/FBI/DNC and probably others, do not all run for cover. The first one to flip normally gets the best deal….unless you are high enough to have something on a real big fish…..don’t want to name anyone but his initials are Barack Obama. I think the cat is out of the bag (not for the majority of American citizens) but for all those involved
        and they have to be thinking of flipping and a deal like we suspect Bill Priestap did when Comey threw him under the bus. Six months ago virtually all the dem politicians and MSM said “conspiracy theory” when Trump mentioned the Obama Administration used the NSA assets to “wiretap” his campaign. No one is saying that now, as more facts and evidence and details reveal; the Big Ugly is becoming a tidal wave. Smart yet corrupt actors in this corrupt FISAgate saga are looking to flip or have already done so. IF there was a public special counsel, they would have a place to run. With an undisclosed prosecutor and grand jury, they are kept wondering and it makes it difficult to get their story straight ….particularly since they have no idea how much evidence the IG Horowitz has collected. Even the most vocal congressmen are no longer so vocal (Schiff comes to mind) and dumb ones have only one hope: Mueller. Mueller flipped months ago.

    I know a lot of this is too convoluted for me, but can someone explain to me why the FISA court was used in this case? Is this a dumb question?

    It seems to me that if FBI has some information that an American was engaging in nefarious business dealings with Russians, normally, the FBI would submit a probable cause affidavit under seal to a Federal judge requesting a surveillance warrant. But this request went directly to the anti-terrorist Foreign Intelligence Court to be rubber-stamped.

    Is that normal? Or maybe these days all requests are routed through the FISA court for a rubber-stamp approval?

      To spy on the Trump Campaign & Transition. Once they got the go ahead on Carter Page, they can monitor basically 3 hops – so if Page talked to Manafort once by email or text or anything, then they can monitor all of Manafort’s communications, then if Manafort talks to Kushner, then they can monitor all of his communications and so on. The above were all examples, not sure if Page was high enough to communicate with anybody high up in the campaign, but the hops could lead to someone high up.

          NPR — With 3 ‘Hops,’ NSA Gets Millions Of Phone Records

          President Barack Obama’s national security team acknowledged for the first time Wednesday that, when investigating one suspected terrorist, it can read and store the phone records of millions of Americans.

          Since it was revealed recently that the National Security Agency puts the phone records of every American into a database, the Obama administration has assured the nation that such records are rarely searched and, when they are, officials target only suspected international terrorists….

          Testimony before Congress on Wednesday showed how easy it is for Americans with no connection to terrorism to unwittingly have their calling patterns analyzed by the government.

          It hinges on what’s known as “hop” or “chain” analysis. When the NSA identifies a suspect, it can look not just at his phone records, but also the records of everyone he calls, everyone who calls those people and everyone who calls those people.

          If the average person called 40 unique people, three-hop analysis would allow the government to mine the records of 2.5 million Americans when investigating one suspected terrorist.[…]

        They’d been using the British to spy on Trumps campaign. The FISAs were both a CYA move and a way to bolster their frame up of Putin and Trump. “Gee, there must be something to this story. The FBI was worried enough to investigate and found enough evidence it was true to take to a FISA court to get a warrant and the evidence was compelling enough for the judge to grant it.” Then the media could run with the story. The FISA was never about spying. It was part of the frame up.

        Remember Page was most likely CIA link otherwise his bio does not add up. Therefore he was INSTRUCTED to contact via e-mail, either President Trump directly or someone very close to President Trump. That way with three hops they have got the cover to spy on President Trump.

        This shows how intrusive a Title I is:
        As an example: “[…]  The FBI obtained the recordings after Sporyshev attempted to recruit an FBI undercover employee (“UCE-1”), who was posing as an analyst from a New York-based energy company. In response to requests from Sporyshev, UCE-1 provided Sporyshev with binders containing purported industry analysis written by UCE-1 and supporting documentation relating to UCE-1’s reports, as well as covertly placed recording devices.”https://www.justice.gov/usao-sdny/pr/evgeny-buryakov-pleads-guilty-manhattan-federal-court-connection-conspiracy-work

        name redacted points out a very important piece of information:
        “Adm Mike Rogers saved the country. On dec 18 he met the NATSEC team of PDJT transition team and briefed them on it all…. At that meeting were current DCI Pompeo , former DCI Woolsey, now ambassador, Mike Flynn, Jeff Sessions, and PDJT.”
        https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/937831014965153792

        THINK!
        If Trump was being passively surveilled via phone calls and e-mail, he would not have moved out of Trump Tower. President Trump already said at a rally he used courier and not e-mail. If you don’t trust the phones you use burner phones. Yet President Trump moved within 24 hours of that meeting. That means Admiral Rogers told President Trump THE WALLS HAVE EARS!!

        In that meeting you have some very well trained Military types.
        President Trump spent 5 years at a military school.
        Pompeo graduated first in his class from the United States Military Academy at West Point where he majored in Mechanical Engineering.
        Admiral Rogers and General Flynn are obvious and even AG Sessions spent time in the Reserves.

        A history lesson…The Australians had a major sting back in the 60’s & 70’s. Their main thrust was to take down the Drug distribution networks of the gangsters. To do that they were tracing telephone calls between suspects. From that came a diagram of the entire criminal network. Street dealer calls supplier, one record, supplier calls boss, another record etc. Over time the phone calls to all parts of the criminal network outlined the entire organization bottom to top along with names etc.

        The FISA Scam the Democraps pulled off uses this same model…only in newer technology and more sophisticated. It is clear to me that is exactly why they used the FISA process as it gave them 100% access to all the methods used to gather intelligence to use it against Trump.

        In my view, Trump is going to use all of this criminal activity to totally dismember ALL of the Democrap party and all of those that took part. As an American I see NO option but to do exactly that. Yes there will be lots of screaming and MSM cover up’s…no matter, they did the Big Ugly and now they MUST PAY!

      Why use FISA court?

      It’s simple:
      These O-team operatives wanted a Secret Warrant.
      They were doing illegal spying on Donald Trump…and they wanted to keep it secret.

      The only way to get a Warrant…and keep it Secret…is to get one through the FISA Court.
      This is because the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court is set up to enable our Intel Agencies the ability to surveil foreign bad guys.

      There was NO foreign aspect, or reason, for their spying on Trump.
      It was purely political.

      So they came up with some bogus, Fabricated Evidence to flash at the FISC Judge, to get one of these secret warrants.

      It’s not that Trump was ever involved in anything ‘foreign’.
      It was because they wanted to keep their Illegal Spying a secret.
      And the only way to do that…was to get a Secret Warrant…which was only available through a FISA Court.

      Yes, if you want to investigate an individual, you file a probable cause as you said. The FBI has to show that a crime is being committed, clearly defines the probable cause for the wiretap, collects information on the American citizen, and we move on.

      But, if the goal is not to investigate Carter Page, if the “big ugly” truth is that Democrats wanted to listen in on the Trump Campaign conversations during an election, conversations of people completely out of the Carter Page’s circle (because remember he was a policy adviser that barely worked for the campaign)…. The way you do THAT is to use the FISA Title 1 law, which allows you to collect all information on a person of interest, *and* all people that person has contact with, *and* the collection happens first then the charges are made later (because this is not criminal law but national security). .

      That data is already being collected by the NSA, you just have to “query” the databases. Then, the FBI filters that information through the Executive Branch’s DOJ, the DOJ makes an unmasking request to put a name on the document, then all that information gets bundled up in the President’s Daily Briefing (PDB). Then, the President shares that daily briefing with the heads of staff of each division, like State Department, etc.

          I view Carter Page as a CIA plant who was on loan to the FBI to catch the Russians here in the USA. He was then tasked to go after the Trump campaign.

          From POLITICO we get some interesting tidbits
          “[…]But who exactly was Carter Page?…

          To answer that question meaningfully it is necessary to go back—to 2013, and to a group of jaded Putin spies working deep undercover in downtown Manhattan…. Sporyshev’s biggest headache was finding Americans willing to become intelligence sources for Russia. This was tough….

          The Russian spies, however, had one promising lead. This was a guy—an energy consultant based in New York City. Unlike the women, he was eager to help. And, it appeared, keen to make money in Moscow. There was a drawback: The source—whom the FBI called “Male-1”—was something of a dimwit.”

          Remember that. To outward appearances Carter Page is a ‘Dimwit’ but is he really??

          One person who met him around this period described the encounter as “excruciating.” Page was “awkward” and “uncomfortable” and “broke into a sweat.”

          Page’s résumé was curious, too. He spent five years in the navy and served as a Marine intelligence officer in the western Sahara….

          He was smart enough to get academic qualifications: fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations, master’s from Georgetown University, a degree from New York University’s business school. And a PhD from the School of Oriental and African Studies at the University of London.

          In 2004 Page moved to Moscow, where he became an energy consultant with Merrill Lynch…. Three years later, Page returned to New York and to his new office next to Trump Tower. From there he set up a private equity business, Global Energy Capital LLC. His partner was Russian—a wealthy former Gazprom manager called Sergei Yatsenko….

          2004 + 3 = 2007 when Obummer was starting his run towards the White House…

            Brennan was so concerned about the intercepted communications that he established a counterintelligence task force, which included the FBI and the National Security Agency.

And looky there- Strzok was on a first name basis with the new guy! And because it is such a super secret operation it sounds a little more exotic to the average Joe, and it bolstered their collusion narrative, and I suspect a Title 1 warrant probably gave them more ‘latitude’ than a normal federal court warrant would have. S/D explained way back that requesting a Title 1 warrant they were telling the court ‘this guy is a foreign operative’ rather than Title 7, which is ‘this guy may be working with/ communicating with foreign agents.’

      The FBI has two functions. One of these is criminal investigations, the other is (foreign) counter-intelligence investigation. There is some overlap between those two fields, but they are effectively disparate areas of investigation.
      Generally speaking, (foreign) counter-intelligence investigations do NOT mature or turn into criminal investigations.
      FISA stands for Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. In order to preserve the illusion that the government gets warrants before snooping on Americans, a court was created to grant warrants when the purpose of the snooping was claimed to be related for foreign counter-intelligence gathering. These warrants are secret, the court is secret, and the results of the snooping generally NEVER appear in any criminal proceeding.
      This activity is totally divorced from the legal procedure that people generally associate with wiretapping, which I paraphrase as “suspicion of crime, get a warrant, wiretap or snoop under the warrant, and if enough evidence surfaces, charge with a crime.”
      Under FISA, there is ZERO suspicion of criminal activity. NONE. The suspicion under FISA is that a person is a foreign agent.

        This is all the more reason for AG Sessions to lower the boom on Mueller. It should not have taken Mueller a year to put this together, heck all he really has to do is follow Sundance’s timeline, and realize that his scope of investigation, Trump Russia collusion, was a myth from the beginning and his investigation is over. Mueller’s job as Special Counsel is not to go on a fishing trip to find criminal activity for anyone who had anything to do with the Trump campaign at any point in their lives. If it was it would be devastating to the concept and Constitution of our country.

        You are the President, you party has the Legislature, you create mythical allegations against your political enemies and poof, a Special Counsel acting in secret investigating anyone associated with those who challenge you. Ethically, morally and Constitutionally this is wrong and should never be allowed to happen regardless of politics.

        Unfortunately I think Mueller is keeping this alive to protect the guilty in the Obama Administration, CIA, FBI and Justice Department. In this instance the Democrats have made a mockery of our legal system and the Bill of Rights. And no, Mueller is not above that, all you have to do is look at his history as the head of the FBI or his investigatory actions with the mob, the anthrax case or the case where he ruined the career of an FBI investigator and the vendetta he has against Flynn for sticking up for her.

          The purpose of the Mueller inquiry is not to investigate the mostly ludicrous-seeming charges in the Steele dossier, but to protect the institution of the FBI, former colleagues, as well as the national security surveillance system. Therefore the inquiry has to cover up the sinful origins of the collusion narrative itself—which was born in repeated abuses of power and subsequent crimes committed by US officials in the intelligence bureaucracy and the Obama administration.

He suggested the IG is going to uncover a whole lot of abuse by the FBI using FISC instead of going to a regular judge who would be far less likely to grant a warrant. Falsely implying a foreign intel case to get surveillance on strictly domestic cases.

    Not an expert on the topic, but my understanding is that the FISC is an easier rubber stamp than a regular court. Also, they are able to give authority to surveil over a much broader spectrum of people and places than a regular court, which is typically very targeted and narrow in their approval.

Bottom line: anyone in the Obama Administration: McCAbe, Comey, Lynch, Holder who has evidence that Obama ordered or even was complicit with the wiretapping (surveillance) on the Trump campaign, now has a lot of leverage. Perhaps explains why AG Sessions has not publicly revealed who the DOJ special counsel is yet, nor the details of the DOJ grand jury mentioned now a couple times, in passing.

        Most of the Verizon data wouldn’t require a warrant at all for the NSA. The FBI might need a warrant to make it legal to do a search of the NSA database, but the NSA has all or almost all of the data already.

        One of the Top Secret slides Snowden revealed shows that all ISPs cooperate willingly with the NSA. The NSA is tapped into the ISP lines after the decryption of communications is made. So, if you go secure to Google email, at the Google server the email is decrypted. The NSA sees that decrypted email because they’re allowed to tap on the inside of the network. This would put all email, text messages and probably phone calls in the NSA database. Remember, phones calls are digitalized when they hit the cell tower.

        You can download much of the Snowden material. That particular info was on a PowerPoint slide.

                “The Australian” is our country’s most “right wing” paper, but its coverage of President Trump is CNN-standard. Fox is the best of a bad bunch. Controlled opposition.

                  Good to hear from “Downunder”!
                  I often wonder how President Trump is viewed by other countries. I have waited my whole life for a president like him. Reagan was good and gave us a respite but it’s been downhill since 1988.

                  Never thought I would see a true American Patriot become President. It costs so much to run a campaign that anyone who runs winds up owing someone favors. I figured it would take an independently wealthy person willing to invest his own money. Who would be crazy enough to do that? Glad I lived long enough to see it. Still can’t believe it sometimes.

      Sessions has never said he has appointed a prosecutor to look at FISA crimes. He told Bream: ““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.” A later comment by Shannon Bream said: “AG’s office confirms this is NOT the IG, but a separate “senior federal prosecutor” outside DC.”

      Bream did a poor job of questioning imo. She never pinned down what this outside person is doing. Sessions said he is “looking at allegations sent by the House Judiciary Committee.” What does “looking at” mean? Does it mean conducting a criminal investigation? Which allegations is he referring to? The FISA abuse memo came from the House Intelligence Committee. Are these FISA abuse allegations the ones he was referring to, or was he referring to something else? Session referred to the outside person as a “senior prosecutor,” but the question is has he been assigned as a prosecutor to conduct a criminal investigation of FISA abuse.

      So Bream should have asked as a follow-up question: “Has this outside prosecutor you referred to been assigned to conduct a criminal investigation of FISA abuse, to include looking at people both inside and outside the DOJ and FBI?” The answer to that question would have resolved all issues regarding whether or not there really is an ongoing investigation of FISA abuse; and we would not be reduced to speculating, as we have for months, about what is going on.

        Perhaps she did, perhaps she did not. Looking from the outside (not knowing what the person conducting the interview knows) it is easy for us sitting here with all the TCT knowledge at tips of our fingers to do “Monday morning quarterbacking”.

        This is not directed at direct criticism of you, Andy (you did add “imo”, after all), but rather to try and remember that we are a VERY small percentage of people that see “the big picture”. There was another mention on FNC last night that many of our lawmakers do not know the full extent of this (their remarks peppered with expletives) . I was tired and don’t recall specifics because I was just heading to bed – it may have been this Rep. Nunes interview that I saw.

        Personally I am willing to cut Shannon Bream some slack. If it were not for FNC & FBN, many Americans would know virtually nothing because of the MSM blackout on this issue. One America News covers it; however, as far as I know only Verizon carries them nationally. OANN is available streaming on http://www.klowdtv.com .

      My opinions, take them as you may::

      1) Congresspeople are self-interested. They want the glory to be in a “congressional Investigation”, like the Clinton impeachment hearings, lots of media, lots of attention. They will steer back to a Select Committee given the chance. The word of the week is pageantry. .

      2) Congresspeople don’t like looking ineffective to their voters. If they have been waiting 2 years for a document from the FBI, their voters might be getting a little edgy about what exactly ARE they doing in Washington DC. Blaming others for stonewalling gets the pressure off them.

      3) They understand that some of the evidence is being used for criminal investigations, but they (like us) have no sense of how far along we are towards criminal indictments. We voters want results, so we complain to the congresspeople. They may have experience before of “trust us, we’ll investigate ourselves, how about that, we’re not guilty”, so there’s a lot of distrust of crimes getting away. Some are retiring at the end of this year, and don’t want the DOJ running out the clock until next spring.

      4) I sense a lot of regret from that video. Regret over not pushing hard enough at the time against small injustices, seeing that all it did was “enable” more and more bad behavior, until the Obama admin was unaccountable. Some of these Senators went light on Clinton before, and they want action now to help their legacy.

    Well this OIG announcement resolves several issues. First, there hasn’t been an ongoing OIG investigation of FISA abuse, as people have been speculating for months. Second, this also means that there wasn’t a contemporaneous ongoing prosecution working hand in glove with the OIG, because the OIG was not working on FISA. And third, since Sessions is just now referring this matter to the OIG, and making a big deal of it, I think it’s safe to assume there is no ongoing criminal investigation of FISA abuse.

    If there were an ongoing criminal investigation, we would know. Multiple indications would exist. Prominent people, like Hillary, would have appeared before the grand jury, and news of those appearances would have leaked out. Subpoenas would have been sent and defense attorneys lined up, news of which would have leaked out. Congressmen would know of the investigation, especially those Congressmen heading the Judiciary Committees. Yet these Congressmen today were referring to the OIG investigation as the only one they were aware of and were calling it inadequate,

    Congressmen were still calling for a special counsel today. Goodlatte, for example, welcomed the OIG investigation but said it wasn’t enough. But he noted the narrow scope of the OIG investigation — whether the DOJ/FBI violated laws/policies in using the dossier to get a warrant on Carter Page and in their relationship and communications with Steele. The coup attempt obviously goes far beyond these issues. Goodlatte also noted the government’s inability to compel statements from past employees like Lynch, Yates, Comey, McCabe, and Carlin. Additionally, the OIG will have no ability to compel statements from people outside government like Steele, Simpson, Nellie Ohr, Hillary, etc. To be honest, the OIG investigation is a sideshow. It doesn’t get to the heart of the matter. And the fact that it took the OIG over a year to investigate a few issues in the email investigation, the report of which has been delayed again, shows a lack of interest and no sense of urgency. I assume the FISA abuse investigation will be slow walked also.

    If you look at the recent history of the DOJ/FBI under Sessions, Rosenstein, and Wray, it’s been one of stonewalling, foot dragging, and lack of transparency. The most recent example where the FBI produced only several thousand documents over months with 27 people assigned to do the job shows an unwillingness to cooperate and a stonewalling attitude. The fact that Nunes has to threaten contempt in his investigation says it all. This DOJ and its AG and the FBI and Director are never going to get the job done. And the criminals are going to skate. Just today Susan Rice was appointed to the board of directors of Netflix. They have no fear.

        I am comparatively new here and have abandoned my usual haunts (for the present) because of the amount of reading back files that has been necessary to understand what has been going on.
        I have a few questions, SD’s article yesterday referred to the IG’s announcement of an investigation, but when you read the IG’s letter it is called a REVIEW. Does this really mean the same thing? When I read the article yesterday I took it to mean a review of the evidence from what I believed to be his ongoing investigation into all things FISA.

        However, this raises more questions, isn’t the IG supposed to report possible illegalities as they are found – the FISA irregularities would surely have been obvious to anyone as blind as a bat and action should already be underway. (Hence, the outside prosecutor and possible Grand Jury). This sounds as if the IG is unaware of this possibility – is this likely/possible? Could the IG be now starting a parallel procedure, which will be running behind any possible other actions?

        Anybody got any thoughts or could explain where I’ve got it wrong – thanks.

Could the outside prosecutor, with or without Sessions call a Grand Jury without the IG being aware?

THINK of them UNLEASHED under department heads appointed by President Trump, UNLEASHED thanks to a recently AMENDED Inspector General Act and most important UNLEASHED because they can now report federal Crimes to an HONEST Attorney General!!!

    TALK ABOUT A BIG UGLY!!! We ain’t seen nothing yet folks!

    Under Obummer the inspectors general were treated like mushrooms to prevent them from finding any dirt. Even if they did find federal crimes those would be reported to the Attorney General who under Obummer would be the unethical Eric Holder or Loretta Lynch.

    That is NOT the case now.
    HISTORY
    “The Obama administration formally announced that inspectors general will have to get permission from their agency heads to gain access to grand jury, wiretap and fair credit information — an action that severely limits the watchdogs’ oversight capabilities, independence and power to uncover fraud.”Sundance

    So IG Horowitz in his bi-annual report to congress complained about the Obama Director of the FBI stonewalling him.

    Horowitz: “….This is an issue of utmost importance, as evidenced by the fact that 47 Inspectors General signed a letter in August 2014 to the Congress strongly endorsing the principle of unimpaired Inspector General access to agency records……” That means there were 46 OTHER Inspectors General who were also angry at being stonewalled. 😀

    So the LAW GOT CHANGED!!!!

    The Inspector General issues a report to the department head AND to congress twice a year. He is under the general supervision of the head BUT the head CAN NOT INTERFERE with an investigation OR FIRE an Inspector General. — ANY CRIMES get reported to AG SESSIONS!

    THIS IS A MAJOR SWAMP DRAINER FOLKS!

    Again read the AMENDED Inspector General Act

    Each Inspector General shall report to and be under the general supervision of the head of the establishment involved or, to the extent such authority is delegated, the officer next in rank below such head, but shall not report to, or be subject to supervision by, any other officer of such establishment. Neither the head of the establishment nor the officer next in rank below such head shall prevent or prohibit the Inspector General from initiating, carrying out, or completing any audit or investigation, or from issuing any subpoena during the course of any audit or investigation.
    (b) An Inspector General may be removed from office by the President….”

    And he must report Federal Crimes to the Attorney General who is now Jeff Sessions and NOT Eric Holder or Loretta Lynch.

    “(d) In carrying out the duties and responsibilities established under this Act, each Inspector General shall report expeditiously to the Attorney General whenever the Inspector General has reasonable grounds to believe there has been a violation of Federal criminal law.”

    This means all the dirt hidden by the White Hats within all the departments for eight years can now be handed over to an Inspector General! 😁

So, they used the Steele Dossier to obtain it in October, using the Page portion of the dossier. This then allowed them to use all the information that they had illegally obtained, plus monitor the campaign for 3 hops of contact.

      Someone needs to turn this into a novel and then a movie!

    Since day 1 the FBI has abused the 702 program:
    https://www.pclob.gov/library/702-Report-2.pdf

    As a result of the above report the FBI made some changes but refused to say what they were:

    ““Changes have been implemented based on PCLOB recommendations, but we cannot comment further due to classification,” said Christopher Allen, a spokesman for the FBI.”

    If it were not for Snowden, none of this would have been revealed. The oversight committees are a joke.

    A few weeks ago Nunes delivered 10 questions to a number of ranking administration officials asking what and when they knew about the FISA issues. He gave them till Friday, May 2 to respond. He PROMISED repeatedly to subpoena anyone who failed to answer. We were told that most did not respond. WHERE ARE NUNES’ SUBPOENAS? He says all the right stuff, but wtf is he actually doing?

    Just my opinion but the reason for the so called “slow walking” (including the “stonewalling” accusations) of information out the investigation is that the Sessions appointed prosecutor is working through the information and as the information is validated and confirmed for prosecution, then irrelevant case pieces can then be released for general consumption.

    That is evidenced by the gaps in text messages, redacted documents or apparently missing documents. The prosecutor is building his/her case. I believe that the information many desire will not be released until the prosecution is underway – indictments released, arrests made and trial begin.

    Until then we will only receive that information that is not case relevant per se and is suitable for the prosecutor’s timing. The end result being that it teases our minds and emotions to want to connect the dots and thereby fuel our desire for justice for the lawbreakers.

      The House Oversight Committee of Congress (Jason Chaffetz) subpoenaed all documents related to the Clinton email investigation after it had been closed in September of 2016. The House committee again (Devin Nunes) issued a subpoena for the same in August, 2017. Now, Chairman Goodlatte is issuing a third subpoena for the same documents. Do you really believe there is any intent at DOJ or FBI to give Congress true and exacting documentation with which to hang the bureaucracy?

      In fact, in Jeff Sessions’ response to Chairman Goodlatte, he refers to the House subpoena as a “request for information.” Since when did a subpoena become a request? He also cites the documents used by James Rybicki to determine whether or not to charge Hillary for her crimes as attorney/client privilege since DOJ’s own legal staff assisted in the preparation. Are you kidding me?

      The sad fact is, the ONLY way that Congress can enforce a subpoena is through the Department of Justice. …Let that soak in.

      The people charged with oversight of an institution must rely on that very same institution to “allow” the oversight. And now, the IG report (just the email investigation, since nothing else is ready) has been delayed yet another month.

      All of this gives dirty cop Mueller time to work on. He is a master craftsman in fashioning conspiracy crimes, which are his stock in trade. He MUST produce a conspiracy charge against PDJT so that the wheels of impeachment have traction, should the Dems retake the House. It is his life’s mission fueled by the maximum energy of the swamp, an entity that we know does not suffer failure well.

        There is not much evidence to entice one to go down the rabbit hole which leads to the DOJ conspiring to protect its own against a Congressional investigation of acts and actors within the DOJ.

        The IG’s office is the ground zero place for uprooting corruption in the DOJ. It is also a huge office. If the Inspector General were uninformed of corruption within the IG’s division, it would mean that there is no mechanism for vital information within the division to flow to him. That is not possible. Furthermore, if the IG were to be part of the corruption, it would mean that there are no “sources” within the division who are feeding whistleblowers on the outside.

        Sessions is parsing his words for a reason. It is highly likely that a great deal of information is being “redacted” in one manner or other because of sealed indictments and the rules concerning disclosure.

        President Trump has tweeted off steam at both AG Sessions and IG Horowitz. Unquestionably, they heard him. AG Sessions has responded that everything is progressing legally, by the book and thoroughly. You have to drag a chain up hill, you can’t push it.

      TheWanderingStar, I agree

      You do not muck up an ongoing investigation by releasing details. Ag Sessions in one of his early sessions before congress said he would not give out information that would compromise an investigation. (Sorry no link but Sundance had the video up.)

    Clinton/Obama/DNC needed “foreign component” for their fake dossier to be FISA court worthy. Senate Foreign Services Chairman Very Angry/Hates Trump John McCain provided this “foreign” FISA requirement when he sent his emissary to Europe for a copy of the ridiculous Steele Dossier-produced and directed by the Clinton/Obama/DNC cartel. Assists provided by the corrupt upper ‘FBI secret group’ and super creep Brennan. Wow, what a nasty bunch of “all for me, none for thee.”

    The Trump DoJ must be freaking out when they look at the big picture facts (gleaned so far) that President Obama weaponized the Oval Office, the DoJ./FBI, The CIA, the State Department and other gov. agencies to spy on and conduct a disinformation campaign against Trump…all on behalf of Hillary Clinton and the DNC, to destroy Trumps Presidential campaign. The OIG report will simply add fuel to a growing bonfire that Obama and his minions conducted a Coup D’eta to fix the election for Clinton and then to retaliate against Trump after he won. It’s mind blowing to the average American to conceive of such a thing happening in the USA. The BigUgly is the realization that IT HAPPENED!

    The monstrosity of this sedition is hard to believe. The MSM has done yeomans work to muddy the water on what really happened in 2016. Most Americans know little or nothing about this whole caper except for Trumps Tweets. FISA Court? What’s that? Masking/unmasking of survellied Citizens what’s that? The endless parade of liars: Holder, Comey, McCabe, Rice, Powers, Clapper, Brennan, Clinton, Obama, Biden…etc. Essentially the entire Obama Administration was involved in the sedition. It’s simply mind blowing!

    Fortunately, Nunes has been the key Congress person involved with the investigation of the Obama administration skullduggery and has been able to articulate to the public what happened, why it happened and who’s to blame. True to form, the left wing MSM has essentially buried the Committees report and by doing so are complicit in the cover up.

    Trump’s DoJ must educate the country on the crimes committed by Obama, the Whitehouse cabal and the Clinton campaign, and via a Grand Jury prosecute this case to the highest level. With Mueller running a disinformation campaign against Trump, time really is of the essence to indict the Obama cabal of traitors.

      I am hoping we see more and more Sex slavery cults like NXIVM WITH CONNECTIONS TO Clinton taken down. This is hard to cover up (although the MSM is trying) but more important it drains the left of $$$$.

      “Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Forces arrested 1,012 suspected child predators from more than 40 states during a two-month nationwide operation following the investigation of more than 69,000 cases, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) announced today.

      The arrests marked the end of Operation Broken Heart, a coordinated investigative operation to intensify efforts to identify and arrest suspected child sexual predators during April and May 2017.[…]”Department of Justice

      A COMMENT on a Greenfield article about AG Sessions
      “There are also the many FBI raids taking place since January of this year. These raids so far have netted 4,474 arrests that includes those trafficking children and young adults into sex trade/slavery. Out of these nearly 2,000 were in California alone mostly in the LA area. During one it included local politicians and clergy among others in positions of power and names are sealed in court. The BGI rescued nearly 400 very children – some of them found kept in cages – as well as young teenagers forced into prostitution and their pimps.
      The youngest child victims were two sisters – 5 months and 5 years old. Their price? It was $600.00! Don’t look for the media to report about these sweeps. Only local TV reports about these sweeps.

      So yes even though it looks outside that Session is not doing much he is quietly cleaning up the messes of the Obama administration. That is no small feat!”

      The last I saw was over 18,500 sealed case files as of March 1. An indictment can include multiple people and multiple charges.

      People may not understand or care about the spying or corruption but they WILL care about the enslaving and torture of little kids.

        You bring up a very important point here, which is PDT and AG Sessions have prioritized the cases that they are going to tackle first. The MSM is NOT reporting these nation-wide, which is why many commenters here (as well as the public at large) wonder about things they do know about and are seemingly bewildered by what could be taking so long.

        Fixing this human suffering with real victims occurring right now takes priority over letting the conspiracy criminals have a few extra months to “sweat it out”. In fact, it is better that they sweat it out and the noose SLOWLY tightens in around them.

        When the arrests do come, we can look forward to MSM endlessly replaying the “lock her up” chants at the rallies, trying to spin real indictments as a “witch hunt”.

    No closure just more investigations. We heard the IG report would be released in Jan, then Feb., then in pieces in March and now we hear, he has opened another investigation.
    Talk, talk, talk no action. This is starting to sound like CNN Russiagate. The difference is the entire country watched Comey lay out the crimes and not hold anyone accountable, the entire country watched Rice lie about Benghazi, the entire country watches the left blame Russia while allowing Mexicans or anyone to physically vote in American election. Yet the IG is “investigating” and Sessions has filed a “lawsuit”. Enough.
