AG Sessions Letter to House and Senate Highlights a Lengthy Review by Prosecutor John W. Huber…

It is important anyone interested in the FBI and DOJ investigation take the time to digest the details within Attorney General Jeff Sessions notification letter to congress outlining his previous appointment of U.S Attorney John Huber to parallel Inspector General Michael Horowitz as a prosecutor.

Do not trust the pundit filtration of content, take the time to read it yourself.

.

Absorbing the DOJ has a long-standing criminal investigation will likely create anxiety for those committed to an irrational intolerance of Attorney General Jeff Sessions; but the substance remains evident regardless of sentiment.

The Bigger Picture – If we accept the historic context for DOJ official communication stemming from the IG investigation, it would appear the notification letter is timed with the conclusion of investigative evidence collection. As such, the timing is safe for the DOJ to reveal the name of the prosecutor many previously refused to believe existed.

There was  already an appointed person, a prosecutor, from “outside of Washington”, in place prior to the recent request for a Special Counsel by Goodlatte and Gowdy. That was exactly what an objective analysis of the events previously outlined – and we previously noted.

Attorney Jeff Sessions previously outlined the existence of an outside prosecutor who has been in place for quite a while, exactly as we thought.  All the evidence of this was/is clear if you follow the granular details closely. Here’s how we figure it out; and also the reason why no-one in Washington DC -including congress and the president- was previously aware, until today.

…”to look at all the allegations that the House Judiciary Committee sent to us” – HERE is an Example. And here is a response:

♦#1) The DOJ Inspector General (Michael Horowitz) has an obligation to notify his superiors when he/she discovers illegal activity, or conduct that is likely unlawful, while conducting an internal investigation. The IG cannot sit on knowledge or evidence of likely criminal conduct, just because he/she is conducting an investigation. This is the same reason why IG Horowitz had to inform Special Counsel Robert Mueller in July of 2017 of the potentially unlawful conduct of members on his team (Lisa Page and Peter Strzok).

♦#2) The same people under investigation within the IG purview (FBI and DOJ officials) are transparently cooperating with the Inspector General. That cooperation, in combination with a likelihood of unlawful conduct, would require a DOJ official (prosecutor) to be assigned to negotiate and outline the DOJ legal terms of investigative compliance. The person negotiating the terms for cooperation would NOT be the Inspector General; because of the potential for criminal charges related to the investigated individuals, it would be the job of a DOJ career prosecutor to comply with legal needs.

♦#3) Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Bruce and Nellie Ohr and Bill Priestap have quotes inside the HPSCI memos. Those quotes come from investigative interviews; no congressional committee has interviewed those persons. Those would be a few of the people in #2 above; and their testimony to Horowitz and a DOJ Prosecutor, would make them witnesses in a criminal investigation. That explains why they have not given interviews to congressional committees. The DOJ needs to keep the integrity of their testimony inside the investigative unit. (ie. in the control of the DOJ official from outside Washington that Jeff Sessions notes).

♦#4) President Trump is the chief executive over the DOJ and FBI; however, in this odd dynamic he is also the victim within the conspiracy as potentially outlined by the investigation. Therefore, again to protect the integrity of the investigation and witness testimony, the victim would be kept at arms length and not informed of the criminal investigation. That’s why POTUS Trump doesn’t know; and AG Sessions must keep distance from any discussion with the executive due to this separation.

♦#5) Cooperating witness testimony in a criminal investigation also means congress would not know of the details. Congress (Nunes, Gowdy and Goodlatte) wouldn’t even know a criminal investigation was opened. The prosecutor works parallel with, but separate from, the IG investigation. Congress would know of the IG, but not the prosecutor. This interview by AG Sessions is the first indication congress would have of a DOJ official already looking at the criminal issues.

♦#6) And the most transparent reason why we know there’s a DOJ prosecutor already on the case is because Jeff Sessions just said there was.

Additionally on February 27th, 2018, Attorney General Jeff Sessions held a press briefing to announce the opioid task force (video below). During the Q&A segment of the presser, Fox News Catherine Herridge asked AG Sessions if the FISA court abuses outlined by Chairman Devin Nunes, Chairman Bob Goodlatte and Chairman Chuck Grassley would be investigated by the DOJ.

Attorney General Sessions affirmed the FISA court abuse by the DOJ and FBI was indeed be investigated and prosecuted and directed attention to Inspector General Michael Horowitz. [watch at 37:57 of video – prompted]

.

This February 27th mention by AG Jeff Sessions WAS NOT NEWS.

That’s why yesterday’s admission by IG Horowitz in this regard was NOT a surprise.  It was happening all along.

(Go Deep)

The February statement by Jeff Sessions was exactly what those who have followed closely will note had seemed to be the direction of the IG investigation since mid-year 2017.

As AG Sessions affirmed, repeatedly, IG Horowitz was NOT limited in scope. Horowitz is investigating *all* avenues of politicization within the DOJ and FBI and abuse therein; this includes FISA abuse. If he found an issue, he had the authority to follow it.

Add this fact to General Sessions’ answers about the appointment of a DOJ official from outside Washington on March 8th, 2018, and you could clearly see the IG and appointed prosecutor have been working together for quite some time.

How long?

Likely since the time when IG Horowitz first informed the AG (Sessions) and DAG (Rosenstein) that he may have discovered significant evidence of unlawful conduct within the DOJ and FBI.  That would be around July/August 2017, when IG Horowitz was bound by duty to inform DOJ Special Counsel Robert Mueller.  That notification led to the removal of Peter Strzok and Lisa Page.

More visibility of the now revealed prosecutor was clear within the timeline:

January 4th, 2018, an agreement was finally made between House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes and DOJ Asst. Attorney General Rod Rosenstein for complete disclosure of all unredacted documents AND a list of witnesses who Nunes wanted the HPSCI to question.

Included in those names was: FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who exchanged anti-Trump text messages during an affair and previously worked on the special counsel’s Russia probe; FBI general counsel James Baker, who was reassigned; FBI head of counterintelligence Bill Priestap, whom ex-FBI boss James Comey testified made the decision not to brief Congress about the Russia case during last year’s election; and Bruce Ohr, a DOJ official reassigned after concealing meetings with figures involved in the dossier.

The January 4th agreement between Devin Nunes and Rod Rosenstein was made after a great deal of back-and-forth. Chairman Nunes then documented the agreement in a letter.

On January 8th, Bruce Ohr was demoted for the second time. [AND DOJ officials scheduled Bruce Ohr to be available to Devin Nunes on January 17th]

On January 9th, the DOJ provided the unredacted DOJ/FBI documents requested to Chairman Nunes; the documents the DOJ produced surrounded the Clinton-Steele Dossier and the FISA Title-1 application. The documents were assigned to a SCIF in the basement of the House. Those documents become the basis for Chairman Nunes to outline his memo; essentially a declassification request to the White House written by Trey Gowdy.

As a result of the agreement between Rod Rosenstein and Devin Nunes, one member from each side of the HPSCI aisle (one Democrat and one Republican) was permitted to review the original FISA application documents which included the Clinton-Steele dossier use therein.

Trey Gowdy and Adam Schiff were the two Intel committee members who reviewed. (Remember, this is January 9th, 2018) [Only Gowdy, Schiff, Ratcliffe and House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte reviewed the original FISA documents]

A week later, January 16th, 2018, Chairman Nunes postponed the witness interview with DOJ official Bruce Ohr scheduled for the next day, January 17th.

Instead, on January 18th, 2018, the HPSCI voted to allow all members of the House to review the Nunes-Gowdy Memo created after the DOJ provided the documents (January 9th). [January 18th THROUGH February 2nd was #ReleaseTheMemo]

Now remember, throughout this time none of those prior agreed-upon FIVE witnesses (Strzok, Page, Priestap, Baker, Ohr) have been interviewed. Everyone’s attention shifted from witness testimony to the Memo; and as Democrat Eric Swalwell stated, no witness was interviewed. Period. [<- key point].

So to summarize so far: during January all the DOJ documents arrived, the HPSCI (Nunes) memo was written, released, declassified and released to the public on February 2nd, 2018 but no witnesses testified. [Nunes Memo – Link]

So the question becomes:

How does the exact testimony (including quotes) of Bruce Ohr, and Bill Priestap become part of the Nunes Memo if neither Bruce Ohr or Bill Priestap was ever interviewed by the House Intelligence Committee?

Who is doing the interrogations of Bill Priestap and Bruce Ohr?

It’s not the HPSCI. It’s not the House Judiciary Committee and it’s not the Senate (Chuck Grassley). [Remember Grassley is relying on responsive FD-302’s provided by the FBI.]

See where this was going? The investigative unit of the IG is providing congress with transcripts of testimony from IG investigators (DOJ and FBI employees within the OIG); with the review, control and approval of the DOJ outside prosecutor.  We now know that prosecutor is John Huber.

DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz has interviewed these witnesses, likely with his appointed DOJ prosecutor Huber, and extracted testimony. This explains why Devin Nunes changed his approach after discussion with AAG Rod Rosenstein and was no longer in a hurry to interview the FIVE? (Strzok, Page, Ohr, Baker and Priestap).

Let me remind everyone that each of the aforementioned names is still within the system. Unlike Mike Kortan, David Laufman, Sally Yates, James Rybicki or Andrew McCabe, none of the five (Strzok, Page, Ohr, Baker, Priestap) have been removed. Peter Strzok is in FBI HR; Lisa Page is doing something; Bruce Ohr and James Baker are holding down chairs somewhere; and Bill Priestap is still Asst. FBI Director in charge of counterintelligence.

It doesn’t go unnoticed the media are transparently not following up on Peter, Lisa, Bruce Jim or Bill. No satellite trucks in front of their houses etc.; no pounding on their doors for comment etc. Nothing.

Further, ask yourself why Inspector General Michael Horowitz (or someone thereabouts) began to advance upon the entire ‘Trump operation’ with releases of Peter Strzok and Lisa Page text messages? Why them? Surely, other collaborative communication was also captured, yet we only heard of Page and Strzok. Why?

Here’s what is becoming transparently obvious. The fab-five are cooperating with the investigative unit of the OIG. All five of them.

The text message release was strategic. It was intended to substantiate the entire enterprise, put the ‘small group on notice’ and flush out the co-conspirators. The downstream exits of Kortan, Laufman, Rybicki, McCabe et al are evidence therein.

Additionally, the OIG (Horowitz) would want to keep the testimony of Page, Strzok, Ohr, Baker and Priestap away from the Democrat politicians, well known leakers, within the House Intelligence Committee (ie. Eric Swalwell and Adam Schiff) until he was certain their usefulness as witnesses was exhausted.

The reason for this is transparently simple. The OIG is a division inside the Department of Justice. During an internal investigation if the IG becomes aware of unlawful activity he/she is obligated to inform the AG (Sessions) or AAG (Rosenstein). He can’t ignore it and he cannot delay notification of it. Unlawful activity must be reported.

The IG does not have legal or prosecutorial authority – the IG must immediately refer unlawful activity to the proper authority; essentially to his boss. A DOJ prosecutor is then assigned to work with the IG (as Jeff Sessions confirmed today) and essentially creates a parallel investigation focused only on the law-breaking part.

[That prosecutor could, likely would, then begin a Grand Jury proceeding; and no-one outside the AG, AAG, and the ‘outside’ prosecutor’s office would know.]

The prior testimony/statements to the IG by the fab-five would explain why AAG Rod Rosenstein was negotiating with Devin Nunes; would explain why Rosenstein was reluctant to allow testimony; and would also explain why Nunes came away from those negotiations with wind in his investigative sails.

The DOJ (Rod Rosenstein) needs to wall-off the politics (Nunes/Congress) from the ongoing criminal investigation (DOJ-OIG-Prosecutor John Huber) to preserve the integrity of his advancing and assembling case (including criminal witness testimony).

As soon as Chairman Nunes recognized something was going on, and after a review of the FISA documents – Nunes dropped his demand for immediate testimony by the fab-five to the HPSCI mid-January. [A record is already established]

As a person familiar with such specific investigative measures recently shared:

“They are sat down, told to not do anything, say anything or discuss anything UNTIL they get an attorney. At which time, the attorney is handed a letter from the investigating unit. That letter says in essence, this is how screwed you are. If you want to be less screwed you will sign this letter of cooperation and assist us. When we don’t need you, you sit there. When we do we will call you and you will provide what we need. Any deviation from this agreement lands you in jail for the full term.”

Additionally regarding Bruce and Nellie Ohr:

“The Republican memo states they turned over all their work and testified to someone that Bruce Ohr met with Christopher Steele and Steele was saying he didn’t want Trump in office. They didn’t testify to a Congressional committee, so it had to be the IG.”

The already existing “outside DOJ official” outlined by AG Sessions, John Huber the person who would be constructing the witness agreements with approval of his DOJ bosses, Rosenstein and Sessions.  Is this all making sense now?

All of the news and information coming forward, including the lack of follow-up attention by the Democrats regarding the minority HPSCI memo, aligns with a very specific set of facts. Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, James Baker, Bill Priestap, Bruce Ohr and likely Nellie Ohr, have cut some kind of deal with prosecutor John Huber for process leniency in exchange for cooperation with the IG and DOJ prosecutor.

Thereby the Fab-Five have provided the IG investigative team and the DOJ prosecutor Huber with sworn statements and testimony which is highlighted in investigative communication between the DOJ and Chairman Nunes; and we saw snippets surfacing in the Nunes memo. That perspective explains everything seen and not seen.

It is likely the final investigative summary from the Department of Justice, Office of Inspector General (DOJ-OIG), Michael Horowitz, is going to be very encompassing. It is also likely to be immediately followed-up by actions, perhaps immediate indictments, from DOJ Prosecutor John Huber who Jeff Sessions brought in from outside Washington.

There is no need for a “Special Counsel” when a DOJ Prosecutor is already working with IG Horowitz. The “outside prosecutor” can begin issuing subpoenas for Grand Jury testimony and statements by the officials no longer within the DOJ/FBI, just as soon as the IG report is finished.

    OK — I do have one salient question: how can Huber investigate his boss, Rosenstein, for possible involvement in the FISA abuses? Rosenstein signed off on the 4th one on Page. Seems to me that unless he has already talked to the IG about how and why this happened AND that his reasons for it were excuplable [he has a good and credible excuse], then he is a potential target of investigation.

    So how does Huber do this? This is one area where an Independent Prosecutor would not have an intrinsic subordination complication.

    Unfortunately my computer no longer supports Scribd. – GRRRRrrrr
    However after reading what Sundance and everyone has said, I would like to toss out these two points.

    First there are indications of prosecutorS — Plural.

    Second is IG Horowitz and his team the ONLY team working with a team of prosecutors?

    there is this Rreport by IG Horowitz to congress several years ago:
    Statement before the U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs concerning “Improving the Efficiency, Effectiveness, and Independence of Inspectors General”

    It says:
    “…Inspector Generals’ Access to Documents and Materials
    While the Inspector General community has been able to generate impressive results, we face significant issues and challenges that affect our independence and ability to conduct effective oversight. For example, timely access to information in our agency’s files remains an important issue and challenge. As I have testified on multiple occasions, in order to conduct effective oversight, an IG must have timely and complete access to documents and materials needed for its audits, reviews, and investigations. 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 FORTY-SEVEN Inspectors General ANGRY because they COULD NOT DO THEIR JOB UNDER OBAMA!

    On December 16, 2016, Congress acted to AMEND the INSPECTOR GENERAL ACT OF 1978

    And give those angry Inspectors General the ability to carry out their jobs without interference.

    Sessions closes the letter with “please contact me personally” with further questions/concerns.
    Note “personally”.

    On page 3, in the text on regulations governing special counsels, Sessions writes “ ….but the regulations’ Standard has been found to be satisfied on only two occasions.”
    Is Sessions refering to 1999 Danforth-Waco and 2003 Fitzgerald-Plame and purposefully omitting 2017 Mueller-Russia?

      Note: Is Session still recused in regards to the Mueller “investigation”?

      Could it be that Rosestein was not _really_ involved in the original course of the investigation, but as more avenues are being opened he starts to become one of the black hat players?

          Treason is generally (with some exceptions) limited to time of war and a false allegiance as a cover for the double dealing and bad faith of helping an enemy.

          But seditious and criminal conspiracy involving espionage / racketeering / money laundering / bribery are crimes of a seriousness involved here, it should qualify as identifying a “domestic enemy” of the republic that is the United States and should qualify as an exception to the limitation of “war time” treason.

          The contrast for treason in war time that is giving aid and comfort to an existing enemy, would be the alternative of covertly becoming a “new enemy” and a domestic enemy oneself, possibly conspiring to aid what is a foreign adversarial state acting as their agent. Espionage is so serious and closely related to treason that generally the penalty is the same, and the only distinction is that espionage is done covertly.

          It is the same general type of pole cat involved for treason or espionage, the stripes are just a little different pattern on the same vermin.

      The ironies pile up:
      What if Mueller turns his attention onto Jeff (Sessions) in an effort to “bag” SOMEBODY big (the way Fitzgerald — another Comey pal bagged Scooter Libby), causing Sessions to have to resign whereupon POTUS appoints Rudy Guiliani or Chris Christie (pit bulls) as Interim AG’s since the ruling Democrats in Congress (minority or majority — it doesn’t matter since the Republicans are toothless) and the interim AG CLEANS HOUSE.

      Other scenario is Mueller fires and misses and this makes Sessions wake up.

      I can dream can’t it?

        AND HE DID THIS AT THE BEHEST OF THE SWAMP… Carter Page was tasked to LISTEN and WATCH for how the TRUMP TEAM responded to those offers made by P-Dop for Trump to meet TOP Russians Officials
        MUELLER’S MANDATE ::
        (i) any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals
        associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump;

        Can you show me where in that mandate it says .. If Team trump people had Russian “Links” BUT THESE LINKS ARE tied to the SWAMP.. You can not prosecute ?

        Our failing as on lookers is details. We ignore them or dont look to see how they fit reality. We run around attacking Sessions and Mueller and completely miss what is right in front of our faces.

        Aside from Flynn..EVERY CHARGE was discovered because these PEOPLE did have Links to Russian.. They just so happen to be links tied to a conspiracy to destroy Trump..

His next call decides how this can go down. Probably one of the biggest calls this man has ever or is ever going to make in his life. America now puts its faith in Mr. Sessions.

      Is the USAO Advisory Committee the method he is using to bolster any decision to prosecute? There are nine US Attorneys on the committee, Huber being Vice Chair was chosen to be the face of contact with IG Horowitz to review all IG case referrals for merit (obviously the Chair, Richard Moore from SD of Alabama, would give an appearance of partiality and that may be why he was not chosen).
      So…Is Huber then sharing with these committee members his case conclusions to present or not present to a grand jury, for feedback? It would be hard for anyone to question the conclusions when you have nine US Attorneys from across the nation in agreement.

And then it follows, to the best of his ability, AG Sessions assembled a mastermind advisory group of ‘white hat’ prosecutors loyal to the President and the Constitution, and which will be invaluable in cleansing the DOJ and FIB of bad actors in DC and nationwide.

      Huber is a Republican. Obama made a big deal about thatnwhen appointing him in 2015. When Trump was inaugurated, Huber submitted his resignation per custom. Only Preet Bhara did not, so Trump fired him. Trump reappointed Huber and he was confirmed in 2017. The Obama first fear deceives the MSM, but not Trump or Sessions. And, Sessions letter to Grassley, Goodlatte, and Gowdy says Huber is supervising a number of IG referred investigations lead by other US DOJ prosecutors.
      Looks to me like Session’s plan is to bag a whole lot of swamp critters in different swamp corners with bulletproof indictments more or less all at once. Hillary exoneration, FiSA abuse, and ‘insurance plan’. And, that Mueller has been at it over a year with a biased group and so far has basically got only Manafort concerning Ukraine stuff years before Trump came down the escalator, plus Nunes winding up his investigation with no there, there, say Special Counsel Mueller is firing blanks in a side show. Keeps the Deep State hopeful and their eyes off the real ball game.

      Huber was first nominated for the position by President Barack Obama in February 2015. Huber offered his resignation in March 2017 at the request of the Trump administration. However, United States Attorney General Jeff Sessions subsequently appointed Huber as interim U.S. Attorney under the Federal Vacancies Reform Act. Huber was renominated by President Donald Trump in June 2017. On August 3, 2017, he was unanimously confirmed by the United States Senate to an additional four-year term as a U.S. Attorney

      I think Orrin Hatch had something to do with Huber staying on despite being an Obama appointee.

    What are the 2 requirements for a Special Counsel to be needed?

    1- Evidence of a crime.

    2- Probability of a lack of fair & balanced treatment by the investigating authority.

    There is plenty of evidence of crimes just in what’s been released so far.

    The crimes were committed by senior levels on down in the very agencies tasked with administering justice- FBI & DOJ. Some of the guilty parties are still employed there.

    Mueller’s investigation should never have been started (he met requirement #2 but not #1), and THIS special counsel should have been convened months ago for meeting BOTH conditions, lol.

    Say what you will, the simplicity of this logic cannot be broken. 🙂

    That said, I understand the political realities of what Sessions is up against, especially with the de facto special counsel complicating everything & acting as the spoiler it was designed to be.

    You fawners over SD need to remember that maaaany people have been questioning Sessions handling of these matters, including THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, along with sundry Senators & Representatives.
