Giddy Up ! U.S. Attorney John Lausch Assigned To Document Production…

Tomorrow Attorney General Jeff Sessions will announce the assignment of U.S. Attorney John Lausch to facilitate the production of documents from the DOJ (Horowitz/Huber) to the House Judiciary Committee, and Chairman Bob Goodlatte.

Mr. Lausch is a Trump appointed U.S. Attorney from outside Washington DC.  John Lausch currently heads the Northern District of Illinois which includes Chicago, and this specific U.S. Attorney has extensive experience in complex cases of conspiracy and political corruption; a key skill-set given the issues within the Horowitz/Huber investigation of potential politicization of the FBI and DOJ offices.

Accepting the OIG report is almost certainly the most complex undertaking of IG Horowitz career; and accepting the multitude of possible angles within each section of the investigative inquiry are so consequential; there’s a strong likelihood the report could come out in stages.

Just the sheer process of an ordinarily complex Office of Inspector General report with the inherent investigative fact-audit, draft-report review, reference fact-check, preliminary draft vetting, and subsequent final draft review and audit is exhaustive in itself.

Now imagine overlaying that report process atop each of the topics behind millions of pages of gathered evidence, thousands of pages of testimony and witness statements, on multiple investigative issues – all surrounding the FBI and DOJ-NSD conduct.

Each of these aspects is an investigation unto itself: •Clinton email, manipulated investigations with predetermined outcomes; •unlawful and coordinated media leaks; •false testimony to FBI, congress and under oath to IG; •manipulated FBI 302 reports; •Willful corruption by AD-Andrew McCabe, D-Comey etc.. and if that’s not complex enough to report about…. overlay the •issues with the FISA court; •false presentations; •source material (Steele Dossier); and well, you get the picture…. This is massive and complex.

There’s a phase in the OIG report process where statements of fact go through an exhaustive draft vetting process within agency. The “source vetting” or “reference-audit” phase is part of the target -and internal review audit- prior to final draft & ultimately publication.

The raw investigative information, used as the foundation for the report, has to be vetted, re-checked, verified and reviewed for placement and footnotes in the draft report, before ANY of that source information is released.

FBI Director Christopher Wray previously assigned 54 staff to go through the IG source draft information (investigative documents) to validate baseline facts prior to release to congress. This process also scans for classified information.

These FBI staff are vetting the underlying evidence that’s noted in Horowitz’s draft notification document. Remember, many of these elements are also potentially criminal actions individually; and quite likely, in the aggregate, also the broad outlines of a criminal conspiracy amid all of the participants.

However, given the reality that politicization of the FBI and DOJ underpins the origination of the investigation that generated the underlying evidence, in order to ensure any internal FBI conflicts do not arise amid document selection, John Lausch will be involved.

U.S. Attorney Lausch review will ensure the FBI does not hide, or marginalize any OIG investigative findings.

You can call it a soft-coup, or you can call it politicization of the DOJ and FBI, but the end result is the same – the intentional effort to manipulate, influence, and ultimately subvert an election for the presidency of the United States.

The first series of those DOJ/FBI document releases will likely happen tomorrow, April 9th, or shortly thereafter.  Another part of John Lausch responsibilities is likely to aide in separating the criminal evidence from within the document production. While these productions are *NOT* the IG report itself, these productions are some of the underlying evidence that underpins chapters of the IG report.

The fingerprints of criminal evidence might be noticed in the corners of the release(s); however, the direct evidence of criminal conduct will not be released. Part of Lausch’s independent responsibility will be to preserve the integrity of any needed criminal evidence. Nothing connected to the ongoing John Huber grand jury presentations will be released.

        I agree with prayer saving us from a fast death.

        We have the slow death team in its place. Prayer needs to continue so real change can occur. Obamacare is still firmly un place. Yep, the tax penalty is going away. Guess what that is going to do with the Obamacare mandates in place with no rollback from this administration and Congress? It will push premiums beyond the ozone layer which they already are priced.

        Don’t believe me. Please go the the government ‘marketplace’ tor yeaoth insurance and see the prices youself currently. Im not sure how many have health insurance through their employer. If you do im sure most have seen the same effect of skyrocket deductibles and higher premiums. So the current state of…doing nothing…is going to cripple the middle class to its knees. Eliminating the mandate and doing nothing else shifts even more of the burden to the middle class.

        Gas has only gone up even with though the alleged policies are in place to be more self-sufficient from the oil cartel of the middle east. The commodity pricing remains manipulated to our detriment.

        The killing of the most innocent lives within a mother’s womb is still legal and subsidized.

        Keep praying. Please keep praying.

          Bo3484 – You are correct, but we also must understand that while it is up to us to pray and be faithful to the Lord, ultimately we will lose. We don’t know when, but at some point in history we will lose America. The Bible says nothing about America in prophecy and so we know that America either has to become a minor power in the world, become a satellite of another country that takes it over, or ceases to exist in order for prophecy to be fulfilled and Christ to return. Our job is to be faithful in all things and regardless of what happens, but someday (it could be soon or it could be centuries from now, only God knows) America as we have known it will cease to exist.

          Personally, I tend to wonder if it will be sooner rather than later. Here are just a few reasons, in no particular order:

          1.) We have no one even close to the kind of leader Trump is that we can be getting ready to take his place after his term(s) in office are over, so there’s a very good chance that once he leaves it will be exactly like Reagan’s exit where he was replaced by a GOPe leader. Trump could easily be followed by a GOPe or Democrat leader. Americans forget too fast and their lack of understanding of what goes on in politics makes us very vulnerable to the country shifting left after Trump (history certainly has seen this happen and we all know that history has a tendency to repeat itself).
          2.) II Chronicles 7:14 promises that God will heal the nation if the people repent of their sinful ways and follow Him. America has done anything but that. In general, most Americans live sinful lives that are an abomination to God. Even with the gift from God of Trump’s election, it is very likely that God will remove His hand of blessing on our nation because Americans, in return for His blessing of giving us our president, have not turned from their sinful ways. God did His part, but we have failed to do ours as required by II Chronicles 7:14. Therefore, there’s a good chance that Trump’s successes for us will be short-lived.
          3.) Most Americans are uninformed about politics. About half of Americans don’t vote. The rest are split between people like us and people who are mindless followers of whoever will give them the biggest handout. That doesn’t bode well for our future as a nation. Our children and grandchildren are being indoctrinated in the schools, which have become nothing more than indoctrination centers from kindergarten through college. Parents are not taking responsibility to see to it their children are being raised to carry on the fight. In fact, most people don’t even know or understand American history. They don’t understand that our founders warned us that there would be a constant battle to retain our freedom and if we aren’t vigilant, we can lose it in one generation.

          Those are just a few of the reasons we have an uphill climb to see to it that Trump’s agenda continues after he finishes his term in office. In fact, it’s an uphill battle just to make sure he will be able to finish his first term, let alone a second term.

          So, yes, we need to keep prayijng and we also need to be taking action. We are already in danger for 2018 because we haven’t got enough food candidates running to replace the lousy politicians we’ve had. The left is far better at getting ready for this stuff than the right. If we do poorly in the midterms, it could very well be a sign that God is pulling back His hand of blessing because of what I stated in my point #2 above.

          I’ll speak plainly, too.

          “Stroking your bible” is nothing less than anti-Christian bigotry. You may believe that mankind evolved “naturally” from mud, that DNA and complex organisms “just appeared” over millions of years by chance and not by design. However, many accomplished people, including those who defend the country from without and those who put people behind bars to defend the country from within, consider a higher power, a “designer” and creator, and to put a find point on it. the Christian God as the source of power for their lives. Their integrity, strength, and courage come not from Darwin, but from a God you cannot consider.

          The American Constitution gives you the right of free speech in open society, a “right” not given by men, but inalienably given from God. What gives you the moral right to denigrate their faith?

          Plainly speaking, that is.

          I will admit that it’s very hard to see how it works, but it works IN THIS UNIVERSE by things that SCIENCE KNOWS. I’ll pray that the vision comes to not just you, but many.

          Analyze it as a science problem. How would it work? But the most important part is as the end. When you’re tempted to say “It’s just science”, ask yourself why the word “just” is there? It’s because the materialists CREATED science as we know it. The science of Cartesian times was much richer, because Laplacian ideas had not forced science into a purely materialist box.

          NATURAL PHILOSOPHY made sense, and that is what it was called. We were ALLOWED to speculate about DESIGN. We were allowed to see all of the universe at once – not forced to accept the rules that SOME imposed on us.

          God has allowed me to see so much more. One of my best tools – like a tape measure – that NEVER shows up materially in the product.

    The US Atty office in Chicago is known for putting crooked politicians and judges in prison. At one time Illinois had two former governors in prison at the same time, one a Democrat and one a Republican, both put there by the US Atty.

      Meanwhile, let us pray.

        I agree StheE. Trump’s tweets, TCH, some of Fox, Zerohedge, the other conservative sites, are up against the whole establishment: the party bosses, the news media, Hollywood, Silicon Valley, social media, Wall Street, the hedge funds, the globalists, the swarms of deep staters who weren’t directly involved in Clinton exoneration/get Trump and won’t be purged, the Marxist “academics,” etc. Most of the public hasn’t even heard of most of the guilty parties and what they did, and when they’re about to be nailed, the media present them as patriotic experts on some made-up excuse to present them as good guys and further confuse the public. As Mark Twain might say, we’re picking a fight with people who buy printers ink by the ton. This will be a core test of America, to out the truth, and then do the right thing. It’ll be a battle for history, and the good guys are outnumbered.

        Seneca the Elder No offense to Sundance but why on earth would POTUS read the CTH for intel? Hes been an international billionaire and celebrity with his own vast network of spies for decades and now he has access to the NSA and ODNI who know EVERYTHING both past, present and in some cases future. President Trump is following a well developed plan, years in the making, to dismantle the completely EVIL Global Swamp. He’s trying to bring us up to speed enough to accept what he knows needs to be done.

          Do you have any idea of the amount of work that goes into every single one of these articles? Do you have a clue about how difficult it is to sort through all those thousands of pages of research and then come up with a brilliant analysis that can be presented in a way that is factually correct, entertaining and connects all the dots?

          As far as POTUS- the man did not get where is he today without availing himself of every single bit of information at his disposal. You know the saying, knowledge is power.

          We know for a fact that POTUS listens to and watches certain radio and cable news shows. Why do you think that is? Because he wants to know what the REAL people are listening to and saying about what is going on with our country, without having it filtered through one of those Government Agencies that you mentioned.

          YES! This is an important point, because the push to explore these taboos is symptomatic of a certain stage of socialists attempting to bring down a country.

          This is VERY MUCH like what the cultural Marxists did in Germany in the late 20’s and early 30’s. There, they pushed a lot of “sex and death” stuff – very ugly. I wish I had links to where I read that – it was a real eye-opener. But the key was pushing people to engage in taboos, so that society would become unmoored from standards. Much of the decadence of the Nazis (who were controlled opposition NATIONAL socialists) reflects this loss of human value in German society at large, particularly among ANY of the socialist movements.

      There has been a huge degree of corruption in politics in this country for a VERY long time. They are the political caste and we’ve all managed to recognize it and yet allow it. The Kennedys, the Bushes and the Clintons are examples of political caste families we all recognize, but there are more.

      We also need to end federal employee unions and the laws which are wildly in support of bad people remaining on the payroll. This is a big part of the basis of the “Deep State.” I have long recognized this problem and, a few years ago recognized how deep that really goes when I was working at a large bank as a contractor and a co-worker who was deserpately trying to being an FTE (full time employee) there, referred to a regular FTE to which we reported as “government.” See, his whole family is from Virginia and nearly all employed by state and federal government. His perception of the establishment as good, powerful and just is so far off the mark it exceeds reason — incredibly brainwashed. (Incidentally, when Trump announced he was running and many people in my group supported Trump, he nearly 100% lost his bladder and anal control over it.)

      My point is to show just how the reality of people is so far out of whack and just exactly what we’re up against when it comes to government “culture.”

              The path is clear Though no eyes can see The course laid down long before. And so with gods and men The sheep remain inside their pen, Though many times theyve seen the way to leave. He rides majestic Past homes of men Who care not or gaze with joy, To see reflected there The trees, the sky, the lily fair, The scene of death is lying just below. The mountain cuts off the town from view, Like a cancer growth is removed by skill. Let it be revealed. A waterfall, his madrigal. An inland sea, his symphony. Undinal songs Urge the sailors on Till lured by sirens cry. Now as the river dissolves in sea, So neptune has claimed another soul. And so with gods and men The sheep remain inside their pen, Until the shepherd leads his flock away. The sands of time were eroded by The river of constant change.

    Those who seek to conceal information definitely have something to hide. We now have an absence of the normal gang that has defended withholding information – they are virtually silent. It is the turn of the tide. The question is whether behind-the-scenes horse trading has begun, and how high the target has been set. Already we see indicators of senior figures in the conspiracy prepared to betray their collaborators. And we are virtually certain that some who are lower in the food chain are talking. At the higher levels brazen denial can be the only response, and we observe this too. The investigators are doing well. Sessions has a glint in his eye that would terrify me if he was after me. On the other hand, Mueller looks more haunted each time we see him, an inquisitor tortured – is it by supreme frustration or by doubt that he might be wrongly timing his own betrayal of his fellow conspirators. The game has moved towards the maximum stake, the obfuscation with documents being mere bluster before the cards are revealed.

We are talking about a global network of EVIL going back generations that involves the most rich and famous people on the planet. POTUS and his team are the outsiders and have to work within corrupted systems. I suggest you pray rather than complain that things aren’t wrapped up like a segment of Law and Order.

        I unerstand the complexity perfectly.

        I’m just not suceptible to being brainwashed in to believing there is nothing fishy about zero indictments up to this point. It’s very disconcerting to me and points to me that wer’re played that there is a IG report MOAB forthcoming. I’ve said this before, I hope I’m wrong, but the days just roll on by with might be just bread and circus.

        Every other major crime takedown by government I have ever seen (and I live in Chicago so I have seen ever seen and by virtue of that I have seen a few) starts with the small fish getting indicted an squeezed to get to the next nigher step on the ladder of corruption.

    A prosecutor should not be meeting with congress to discuss the susbtance or strategy of any ongoing prosecutions. Putting another, unrelated US Attorney in charge of the submissions to congress makes sense. Presumably, Lausch has been briefed by Sessions as to the sort of material he should withhold or redact, but keeping Huber away from congress makes sense, if in fact Huber has been given the green light to move forward with prosecutions. This is a unique situation, but if the information requested by Goodlatte and Nunes begins to flow more quickly and comprehensively going forward, this may be a very good indicator that the DOJ is now moving more in step with the expectations of the President and the demands prudent enforcement of federal criminal law.

    At the same time, congress has a right to conduct oversight, as has been underscored by many of House committee leaders in recent weeks. This annoncement should concern the criminal targets of this investigation. The only reason to assign a second US Attorney to the document production side of this is to create a point of contact for congress to explain why certain redactions will be required on a forward basis. The only plausible reason for the addional contact is that Huber or others are involved in more than a “review” of the IG report. Of course, this lines up with what has been presented on CTH for many months now, but as a recovering attorney, I can’t resist adding my 2 cents worth. It’s a personality trait many of us share; we find our own words and musings deeply intoxicating.

    I certainly appreciate all the heavy lifting done by Sundance to drag these vampires into the light.

    I still maintain that there are many Establishment Republicans in Congress and their donors that have a vested interest in ensuring that the secrets within this Deep State coup remain secret.

    I believe the long game of Ryan/McConnell et al. is to delay and obfuscate as long as possible to ensure a November midterm loss that will sweep Democrats into power and thus turn the narrative into impeachment rather than Deep State collusion. The media will be only too happy to oblige, and the truth of what happened disappears for fifty years like Chappaquiddick.

    That is why time is of the essence here. Sunset is November 6, 2018. The case has to be made to and digested by the public before that date. If Mr. Trump can ease trade war tensions with China, and strike a real disarmament deal on North Korea (both interrelated), that would really seal the deal.

    But the longer that so many balls are up in the air as sunset nears means the increased likelihood of midterm change. It is significant to me that the tax bill waited to take effect until 2018. If people could have seen the difference when filling out their tax returns in April of 2018 rather than 2019…

    Many see it in their checks, but nothing brings it home like that tax return. This was another strategic move by McConnell/Ryan. Like Dracula, the Deep State has its share of Renfields as well.

    Good background article on U.S. Attorney John R. Lausch Jr.
    He has blue collar roots.
    He grew up in Joliet, IL . which is about 45 miles south of Chicago. His father was a firefighter and Sears repairmen.

    “Lausch often was doing a job while going to high school and later at Harvard University, where he was captain of the football team. He had a janitorial job at the Cathedral of St. Raymond, where he went to grade school, and later worked at the Thomas Steel plant in Lemont during summer breaks. At Harvard, he worked for the athletic department.” He also worked at a Joliet refinery.

      The two numbers to remember are:
      1. It takes only 218 votes or a simple majority to start the process in the house. Possible only if Democrats win house and/or the establishment Republicans decide Trump is winning too much.
      2. It takes 67 senate votes to actually impeach. This one can be more dicey because the actions of neverTrump and deepBlue Republicans never be predicted or trusted, if the democrats win both senate as well as house and offer enough money to Republicans who do not like Trump.

      I also suggest watching the race for the open New York Seat in the house of representative, especially if Hillary feels her chances of becoming president are good after Trump and Pence are impeached. Hillary gains seat and displaces Pelosi as Speaker candidate.

    POLITICAL THEATER: Lausch Appointment Continues “Slow-Walk” Release of Clinton Docs

    Department of Justice Attorney General Jeff Sessions appointed Northern District of Illinois U.S. Attorney John Lausch to oversee the delivery of more than 1.2 million documents demanded by Congress from the FBI.  Congressional investigators claim the FBI has ‘slow-walked’ the release of the information needed for the lawmakers’ investigation and some lawyers are saying the DOJ’s appointment is nothing but “political theater” to avoid contempt of Congress.

  44. molonlabe28 says:

    This is a yuge development in the investigative process.

    First, Sessions has appointed Lausch because Sessions doesn’t trust Rosenstein to handle it and because Rosenstein specifically, and the DOJ and FBI generally, have zero credibility with Congress or with a large swath of the country.

    Thus, Sessions has put Rosenstein on the bench for this critical aspect of the investigation.

    Sessions has substantially reduced Rosenstein’s roll and, as a result, embarked on a path of terminating him in the investigation on an incremental basis.

    Second, this action was probably instituted by Sessions following extensive discussions with Horowitz and Huber, very possibly because they distrust Rosenstein.

    Horowitz has likely run across something which, in addition to Rosentstein’s signing one of the FISA renewal applications, has rendered Rosenstein a target of his and Huber’s investigations.

    So having the DOJ and the FBI continue to stonewall and dissemble to Congress by giving Congress 1% of what it has requested is something that disgusts Sessions, himself a longtime Senator.

    Having Rosenstein remain in control of a good bit of the evidence of the Horowitz and Huber investigations permits the fox in the henhouse arrangement, that we have all complained about for months, to remain indefinitely.

    Third, someone’s report (SD reported on) recently noted the obvious, namely that Horowitz was able to access the same 30,000 emails that the FBI had announced it couldn’t open.

    What wasn’t said was that the FBI and DOJ also falsely clamored about the release of the Nunes Memo, insisting that its contents would jeopardize national security.

    It’s yet another example of flagrant lying and covering up by both agencies.

    I think Sessions is sick of it.

    Lastly, all of this is more critical if there is any truth to the recent notion (or rumor) that the FISA application given to Congress is not the one actually filed with the FISA Court.

    This is really getting fascinating, and we don’t even know the full extent of the chicanery.

    MAGA.

    From http://www.Saraacarter.com

    “I think the problem with the production of the documentation is adding too much supervision,” said DiGenova regarding the appointment of Lausch. “This is all political theater and trying to prevent contempt of Congress. This is all designed to get (House Speaker) Paul Ryan not to agree to contempt and an attempt to delay production of the documents until the November election, hoping the Republican’s lose the House.

    “DiGenova said Wray and Rosenstein are responsible for the delays and should be held in contempt.”

    “Rosenstein has stolen 15 months of Donald trump’s presidency because he didn’t want the responsibility of having the case in the Justice Department and he illegally appointed a Special Counsel because he didn’t have any evidence of a crime. He knows better than that. The whole thing has a political stench to it because of the cowardice of Rosenstein.”
