House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte Requests Review of DOJ Influence Upon Clinton Investigation…

House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte sends a letter (full pdf below) to Attorney General Jeff Sessions requesting an investigative review of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and the potential interference/influence by Principal Asst. Deputy Attorney General (PADAG) Matthew Axelrod.

In the letter Chairman Goodlatte references the previous Inspector General report which outlined an October 26th, 2016, conversation between Main Justice and the FBI about the investigation of the Clinton Foundation. The concern is undue influence by the DOJ over the investigation; potentially leading to a compromise of the investigation itself.

McCabe–PADAG Call on the CF Investigation (August 12)

McCabe told the OIG that on August 12, 2016, he received a telephone call from PADAG regarding the FBI’s handling of the CF Investigation (the “PADAG call”). McCabe said that PADAG expressed concerns about FBI agents taking overt steps in the CF Investigation during the presidential campaign.

According to McCabe, he pushed back, asking “are you telling me that I need to shut down a validly predicated investigation?” McCabe told us that the conversation was “very dramatic” and he never had a similar confrontation like the PADAG call with a high-level Department official in his entire FBI career.

From the OIG report4. The Attorney General Expresses Strong Concerns to McCabe and other FBI Officials about Leaks, and McCabe Discusses Recusing Himself from CF Investigation (October 26, 2016)

McCabe told the OIG that during the October 2016 time frame, it was his “perception that there was a lot of information coming out of likely the [FBI’s] New York Field Office” that was ending up in the news. McCabe told the OIG that he “had some heated back-and-forths” with the New York Assistant Director in Charge (“NY-ADIC”) over the issue of media leaks.

On October 26th, 2016, McCabe and NY-ADIC participated in what McCabe described as “a hastily convened conference call with the Attorney General [Loretta Lynch] who delivered the same message to us” about leaks, with specific focus being on leaks regarding the high-profile investigation by FBI’s New York Field Office into the death of Eric Garner. McCabe told us that he “never heard her use more forceful language.” NY-ADIC confirmed that the participants got “ripped by the AG on leaks.”

According to NY-ADIC’s testimony and an e-mail he sent to himself on October 31, McCabe indicated to NY-ADIC and a then-FBI Executive Assistant Director (“EAD”) in a conversation after Attorney General Lynch disconnected from the call that McCabe was recusing himself from the CF Investigation.

Stuff just got seriously elevated.  Main Justice is making inquires, Attorney General Loretta Lynch is making inquiries, and now James Comey has to be brought into the loop.  How does McCabe explain the call from Main Justice, and Loretta Lynch, to his boss, James Comey?

Per numerous questions, below is “unrelated”:

    Awash in concern trolls who fear this and that, and want a report on a complicated investigation RIGHT NOW, IF NOT YESTERDAY with no thought to what is involved in putting together an investigation that will yield indictable offenses – individuals charged with evidence – rock solid evidence – to back up those charges.

    We are beginning to sound like all the other fools on the internet. Yammerers. Pay attention to SD. He knows what he’s talking about. Hysterical ranting is not his thing – for good reason.

    When I started reading Sundance about a year ago, it took me forever to read each detailed article. There are so many people involved and to figure out the whole scheme was a challenge. As it has developed, however, the pieces have come together and make such sense. I know the cast of characters and their connections. (Huge thanks, Sundance!)

    This is so huge that it is magnificent how Trump and his team (and, yes Sessions!) are unraveling it piece by piece. I get so excited when a whole scheme has been dismantled, and I want the satisfaction of arrests NOW. But, can you even imagine the anxiety taking place in the homes of those who participated in the effort to take out the President? I’m sure that there are many who have cried “uncle” and started to cooperate, rather than to wait for the pre-dawn knock down of their front door.

    I trust our President.

    just saw this comment at the gateway pundit (sorry I can’t tell who this guy is or if he is a treeper or not – but wow):

    Comment on the article about trump’s tweet takedown of Mueller earlier today (May 2nd):

    “America, the constitutionally elected President, Donald Trump or the illegitimately appointed Special Coup-Master, ex-FBI Chief, Robert Mueller?

    The original political dirty work had been done by a clique of deep-state operators at the top of the FBI and DOJ, and now they would still keep control with [their man] Mueller.

    Found in the last pages, 47,48,49 of the latest text release:

    Peter Strzok:
    “News announcing Mueller…You can go work with Aaron for him…you heard it from me first…And you go to Wilmer when it’s done…..

    Lisa Page: Wow wowie Wow wow……”

    Strzok knew he would be on Mueller’s Counsel the same day of Mueller’s appointment. Page seemed ecstatic to get on to Mueller’s team through Aaron Zebley–Mueller’s former chief of staff at the FBI, then partner at Wilmer Hale.

    Peter Strzok is everywhere in this conspiracy. He fixes the exoneration of Clinton. He poisons the FISA Court application. He slips the Mickey to Flynn. Then he joins Mueller to help concoct a potion to remove President Donald Trump.

    The mere fact these two fixers were brought in by Mueller, who then kept their removal from his Counsel hidden, means Mueller and his Specious Counsel represented the new phase of the same treacherous political conspiracy–a soft coup–founded on the same poisonous lie.”

    Wow! The Clinton Foundation is reported to be revving up for big fund raising events. Are we getting an indication of what the IG report on the Hillary emails and FBI investigations into the clinton foundation will be soon reporting? Recall Hillary reported to be with Obama on Air Force One as an example of how to rub every ones nose into an upcoming decision.
