BREAKING: Former FBI Chief Legal Counsel James Baker Resigns from FBI – Granular Detail Indicates “No Immunity”…

The New York Times is now reporting  former FBI Chief Legal Counsel James Baker has resigned from the FBI.  This follows a similar announcement for Lisa Page.

James Baker and Lisa Page were part of the “fab five” (Baker, Page, Strzok, Ohr, Priestap) previously suspected as cooperating with IG and FBI INSD investigators in exchange for some form of process leniency.  James Baker was removed from his position as FBI Chief Legal Counsel on December 21st, 2017.  He has been holding down some previously unknown position inside the FBI until today.

WASHINGTON — Two top F.B.I. aides who worked alongside the former director James B. Comey as he navigated one of the most politically tumultuous periods in the bureau’s history resigned on Friday.

One of them, James A. Baker, served as the F.B.I.’s top lawyer until December when he was reassigned as the new director, Christopher A. Wray, began installing his own advisers. Mr. Baker had been investigated by the Justice Department on suspicion of sharing classified information with reporters. He has not been charged.

[…] Mr. Baker said in a telephone interview that he would be joining the Brookings Institution to write for Lawfare, its blog focused on national security law. (read more)

The New York Times (Michael Schmidt) focuses a great deal of energy attaching James Baker’s current perspective to James Comey as opposed to Andrew McCabe.  Remember, Schmidt was the leak recipient from Comey via Benjamin Wittes (loyalty articles etc.).

Additionally, Baker going to work for Wittes at Lawfare..

(Hi Ben!)

….indicates he has NOT been granted prosecutorial immunity.   If James Baker had immunity as part of his cooperation deal he would not be going to work for Wittes at Lawfare blog.

Additionally x2, this relationship solidifies our previous analysis that the Lawfare group was/is far more involved in the overall conspiracy scheme than all other reporting was highlighting.  The Lawfare group were the ‘outside government’ team who were coaching the DOJ/FBI “small group” on how to execute the “Insurance Policy”.

It is transparently obvious from the way this NYT story is framed (Schmidt), that James Baker is seeking to hug up against James Comey for all pending legal issues.  This puts Andrew McCabe on the outside of the circled-wagon defenses.

Big news.

Additionally x3, this also indicates the IG report is rapidly moving toward its conclusion, and also indicates that federal prosecutor John Huber is not granting immunity to the cooperating group.

The most interesting people in the ongoing investigation were those principals who clearly were in/around the center of 2015/2016 activity; were caught in 2017, yet remained inside the FBI and DOJ National Security Division (DOJ-NSD) ie. Main Justice.

♦James Baker – The former FBI chief legal counsel and close adviser to FBI Director James Comey.  In addition to coordinating the “small group” activity to exonerate Hillary Clinton, Baker was also a recipient for some of the Comey Memos of recent release. This puts Baker in a position to understand the “insurance policy” described by FBI Agent Peter Strzok and FBI Counsel Lisa Page. Additionally, Baker would be able to identify the level of knowledge and participation of Director Comey, and is therefore perhaps the biggest risk to Comey specifically.  December 21st, 2017, Baker was removed from any responsibility but remains inside the FBI in some capacity; he was therefore considered a cooperating co-conspirator for the FBI Inspection Division (INSD), IG Horowitz and likely prosecutor Huber.

♦Lisa Page – The former designated counsel from Main Justice assigned to assist Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe.  We know from open-sourced information; from her own released text messages; and from congressional releases, that Lisa Page was the person who provided the text messages to INSD and the Inspector General. Page’s account of the media leak instructions she received from McCabe conflicted with her boss, and ultimately led to the proof of McCabe’s false statements.  Lisa Page was the connective bridge within the team joining the DOJ-NSD to the FBI operation.  Obviously Page and FBI Agent Peter Strzok were working closely at the heart of the “small group” activity.  They were the footsoldiers carrying out the orders passed down from Lynch/Yates (DOJ) and Comey/McCabe (FBI).   After cooperating with the INSD and IG investigation, Page quit the Mueller team in June of 2017.

        So, things im wondering about, with I.G. report. Seems like he’s got to cover the linch call to nypd, telling them to cool it with weiner material; Comey would have given them that.
        Is that stuff ever gonna come to lite?
        Is he gonna say, in investigating how these clowns white washed Clinton email investigation, also found that SAME people at top of fbi and doj ordered standown on several field office investigations of CF?
        And, will WE learn anything new, or will the I.G. report simply bring the public up to speed?
        Previous one showed I.G. looking at phone logs, meetings etc.
        And whats gonna happen with Rosie? Will the big debate finally be resolved?
        Will Huber wait 1-2 weeks, for it to be digested, or start unsealing indictments post haste?
        Mueller is TOAST, but how does that play out. The waiting will be delicious agony, watching it play out, simply delicious

      @Sundance and @The Great Kazoo:

      Baker and Page – both – were FIRED although the Mockingbird media reports that they resigned – they lied!

      Interestingly enough is this: Page was fired after false testimony given and received by Page.

      Baker was actually fired on 21 April 2018 rather than as reported resigned yesterday.

      @Sundance: I know this will help in your further analysis as this case moves forward.

      Additionally fired but most likely already knows are these individuals:

      Kortan, Campbell, Laufman, Carlin, Yates, McCord and Brand who was 3rd official behind Rod Rosenstein!

      This info comes directly from Q who posted it on the anon board on 8chan.

            Patience, young Jedi. Think logically. Page, Baker, Ohr, Strozk, (and a few others) were all relieved of duty BUT were kept on at some nameless job in the FBI/DOJ. Why?? Because they cut a deal and were giving testimony against the others in return for consideration at sentencing. If they are NOW being fired, it is because the IG got everything he needed from them. To my mind, that is a clear indication that the curtain is rising and the show is about to start. Get your popcorn ready!

        There is such a thing as forced resignation. It allows the person resigning the option of saving face, rather than to go out the way that McCabe did, who was fired. Many times the directors/general managers, along with someone from the human resources department, will have a resignation letter already prepared for the person they want gone. It’s not unusual to go over the reason or reasons why the employee’s employment can be terminated. Once an employee is presented with that information, most of the time they prefer to go out with some dignity intact, and sign the resignation letter, which is short and sweat, and usually gives no detail as to the reason or reasons for their resignation. It’s good for the employer, especially if it’s a civil service job, because once the employee resigns, they forfeit all rights to request a hearing through a civil service merit system review board.

        As for McCabe, because his employment was terminated, he can’t draw early retirement at 50, but he can draw retirement when he reaches the age of 57, the required federal retirement age for law enforcement officers. However, if McCabe is charged and convicted of certain felonies, he could forfeit his retirement pension altogether.

      No. The fact that Baker is going to Lawfare shows that he has not been cooperating. He’d be torn to shreds there. The fact that the FBI has not grabbed the two lovebirds personal communications devices shows that the IG report is going to come as a grave disappointment to CTHers. We’ll find out that the Hillary investigation was very difficult but done as well as could be expected in the circumstances. And that the FISA applications were just fine.

      The fact that the FBI is happy to give Grassley a middle finger and Rosie is confident about telling Congress to go forth and multiply indicates that there’s no fear of any shoes dropping. And if there were any shoes to drop they’d know because the IG’s staff will be 90% Dems who’d tell them. So this is all going to be swept under the carpet.

      “Why aren’t these people under house arrest?” @Liz

      Well, Liz, they’re not under arrest because Sessions is obstructing justice. That’s the bottom line. They are not subject to criminal indictment, because the OIG cannot empanel a grand jury or indict anyone – he’s more like an HR Director, exclusively focused on personnel/department policy matters. He can refer them to a US Attorney (or AG) for prosecution, but there is no evidence yet public that he is doing anything beyond the minimal “HR discipline” role of his office. Otherwise, you would see the indictments, you would see “no knock” raids in the middle of the night on their homes, you would hear of that their banking and private social media accounts (e.g. gmail) were seized, and you would see them indicted or pleading out. You would hear of the CRIMINAL investigation because their attorney’s, and witnesses/attorneys interviewed or subpoenaed would talk. Criminal investigations cannot be done in private, not in Washington, D.C. and not when the Federal government is permanently “held” by Democrat partisan civil service employees. Every dang employee at Justice and the FBI, just about, has their own private “journalist” to leak to.

      None of that has happened. No criminal investigation is taking place. THESE PEOPLE WEREN’T EVEN FIRED!! At worse, they’ll maybe get the Lois Lerner treatment.

      I’m sorry to burst your bubble, and will all due respect to Sundance, nothing’s happening to bring any of the perps to justice, period.

              @Perot Conservative

              Understand your conviction, but beg to differ with you.

              Do you recall how a former president for eight years stalled ANY investigation or serious inquiry about numerous scandals, including one involving a thing Nixon was almost impeached for (i.e. using the IRS law enforcement against political enemies), by saying simply “I’m sorry, we cannot comment about that at this time, as it is under investigation.”

              And they were, too, right up until Obama left office when it all became Hillary’s “all this stuff was investigated and I was exonerated; it’s just political” meme.

              Well, there is more evidence that main Justice and the FBI are doing that, than there is that Sessions and his “bulldog” US Attorneys are seriously investigating anything, other than Trump and anyone who ever met/worked for/served/or voted for him.

              There CAN BE NO INVESTIGATION if the evidence is not captured, and we found out yesterday, that the most likely damning evidence by Page and Strzok, their private email accounts, was not subpoena’d, and will not be. That evidence at this point is certainly lost, and unrecoverable. GMAIL does not keep private email forever, and absent a court order, can delete and scrub those email accounts. You KNOW that this has been done.

              A real investigation results in indictments of “little Indians” like Strzok and Page, in the hope they can be flipped against their bosses, and then against their bosses, to do the same, and thus the investigation, and EVIDENCE COLLECTION expands. We know definitively that this is not happening, so what kind of investigation is possible without it?

              Do you understand that the OIG cannot follow any lead outside Justice and the FBI, and that a majority of the suspected “Coup d’atat” occurred outside of Justice? Again, no investigation, no “no knock” middle of the night raids, no subpoena’s, and no indictment means that the evidence trail goes cold. “Sealed indictments” do not result in convictions, plea bargains, or the expansion of the investigation. People who are touched by a “real investigation” talk, i.e. witnesses, people interviewed, they talk and leak like a sieve. There is none of that from Sessions “secret” investigations of Obama, Clapper, Brennen, Powers, Clinton, and so on and so forth. It’s just not happening.

              What Sessions and Rosenstein have done via Obstruction of Justice cannot be undone. It’s game over.

                You may know better than I. I see indications on both sides.

                1. Horowitz was neutered by Obama and Holder, and worked to restore the powers of OIG. Right?

                2. Horowitz has over 1.5 Million, either pages or documents. Evidence??!!

                3. Interviews and evidence appears to point to an internal group cooperating with Huber.

                4. I agree not going after the gmail account is troubling. But maybe they calculated the time since IG brought on board, it would be moot? Maybe NSA has it?

                5. Where are the 45,000 Page-Strzok texts? They gave us 1%!! There are holes! Are they waiting for The Big Ugly?

                Maybe they feel they have enough with texts, emails, NSA, and flippers. They’re virtually all government employees! Maybe Sessions figures he can’t win a jury trial in DC, or we’ll get token convictions?

                I have asked this question twice, didn’t see an answer. What if we have a mountain of evidence, and Sessions piddles around. Can Trump remove Sessions, bring in some junkyard dog attorney’s, and prosecute the hell out of it? Would Congress stop that?

          “500 prosecutors nationwide”

          I don’t think you quite know what you are saying. The OIG may have a staff of 500, but that’s not 500 government attorneys. That’s assistant US attorneys, assigned FBI agents, and 90% logistics, from GS3’s to GS16’s, doing all sorts of bureaucratic office work. However, I’ll conceded, he has a large staff. His ENTIRE staff is not working on that investigation. Justice and the FBI are large operations, the OIG rides herd on it, basically an “HR” integrity function, and maybe 10% of it might be involved with the half dozen or so principle suspects.

          Huber CERTAINLY DOES NOT have a staff that large, and they are not all attorneys and/or assigned FBI agents. He is also not working exclusively on an investigation, i.e. paired up with the OIG. His office has far greater responsibilities than an FBI/Justice department investigation of a half dozen bad actors in a department of 1000’s.

          The arrests will come once the investigations are complete.

          Finally, I’ll redirect your attention to my comments throughout this thread. Why do you believe that a super secret investigation will result in no leaks, no subpoenas, no indictments, NO EVIDENCE COLLECTION OR INTERVIEWS OF TARGETS OF INTEREST, OR WITNESSES, and suddenly “shazam”, it all comes out at once. That’s movie stuff you’re thinking off, i.e. “The Sting”, “Oceans Eleven”, etc.. This would be a RICO like investigation. It would build over time, and it would use subpoena’s and indictments to “flip” targets, and find new information and new targets, kind of like what Bob Mueller is doing. This stuff can’t be hidden. People talk.

          What is happening is what you actually SEE is happening, not what Sundance (respectfully) or others are hypothesizing. A theory, even an educated guess, is not necessarily reality.

          You know what “reality” is? It’s Lois Lerner walking into the sunset with a $170K a year pension for life, it’s the IRS admitting to CRIMINAL “mistakes made”, and it’s no criminal investigation of any of it by Jeff Sessions Justice Department. It’s Rod Rosenstein actively obstructing Justice, slow walking every and any request for information by Congress which might shed light on what happened at Justice and the FBI on Obama’s watch. It’s the full court press to suppress, by Jeff Session’s Justice Department and FBI.

          That’s reality. Expect anything else, and you’ll likely be disappointed.

            With respect, you overstate your case.

            1. “no indictments” Sara Carter says there are sealed indictments, as do others.

            2. “NO EVIDENCE COLLECTION” What is 1.5 Million pages, wallpaper? A google contract? Hello!

            3. “OR INTERVIEWS OF TARGETS OF INTEREST, OR WITNESSES” – I think you need to read more. Brice Uhr has reportedly been interviewd 12 timez! McCabe was interviewed multiple times.

            4. I think what is different here are that 90% of the actors are government employees. … Manafortvand Cohen weren’t.

            5. I would guess there is some incredibly daming information in government issued texts and email, as well as on government computers, with gov’t and NSA backups.

            6. Theoretically, some of these people could be facing hundreds of years in prison, right? So that is powerful motivation to flip. And if the Grand jury is in Utah, maybe that is why it’s so quite?

            Time will tell, gov’t officials are dropping fast.

      This is what amazes me: how can anyone who has read Sundance’s meticulous and scrupulous posts NOT be feeling joyful and have hopeful expectation? If it were not for those posts, yes, I would be discouraged and in despair.

      But what Sundance demonstrates every single day is the EVIDENCE of the corruption and criminality which has run wild, unchecked, for so long, and that we all “knew” was there.

      How is it that I feel comforted and hopefully expectant after reading a Sundance post, and in response to the same post so many people screech and run around hysterically?

      What Sundance has been disclosing is so powerful it CANNOT validly or practically be ignored with Trump as President.

      It was always impossible to drain the swamp without a lot of stench and ugly slimy creatures running about squealing their terror.

      We can all have a default psychological state when it comes to momentous things whose end result and current status is necessarily unknown to us in all its complex detail, but HOPEFULLY EXPECTANT seems to be a reasonable one compared to others.

    Do not put much hope in Horowitz, a veteran bureaucrat who knows he will have to work in DC for quite a while alongside some of the same people he’s supposedly reporting on. Splitting the difference, hemming and hawing, explaining that on the one hand this but on the other that, those are brain-numbing investigative dead ends that Horowitz is forced to stroll into by very the nature of the bureaucracy.

    In fact we have recently been getting some very fishy signals of what’s coming, from Sessions’ ho-hum talk of “disciplinary measures” at the DoJ to Rosenstein’s recital of that old yawner “mistakes have been made.” Sessions and Rosenstein intend to give a few people a stern talking-to, I suspect, and that will be that.

    I doubt that even Andrew McCabe will ever be prosecuted. Horowitz’s report described McCabe’s repeated bald-faced lying under oath as someone “lacking in candor.” Uh-huh. A murder victim lacks a heartbeat; so, alà Horowitz’s office, that’s all that needs saying. It’s grotesque

    The un-redacted report just released will not affect Comey much at all. He has served his purpose and will be promptly ignored, if not forgotten, by the media as from now. Had the report come out before Comey’s interview marathon, he would have been damaged. Rosenstein delayed release, knowing how media spin operates, until afterwards. James Comey deals in in the sort of relentless, indefatigable double-talk that IGs like Horowitz always take seriously because it is politically and professionally impossible for them not to. Comey will be scolded for “poor judgment,” given the benefit of the doubt, and walk.

    People have figured out that Mueller and Rosenstein have been hiding the ball of what exactly Mueller’s authority as special council is.

    A Special Council cannot — by law — use a Title 1 FISA counter intelligence warrant for criminal trials against citizens.

    Sundance — and the Russians — have both figured this out and are attacking this Achilles heal of Mueller’s S.C. authority.

    It is beginning to look like the DoJ National Security Division under AG Holder and FBI Counter-Intelligence under then FBI Director Mueller decided to simply decided to abolish — De Facto but not De Jure — that legal barrier totally in order to become Obama’s secret police for the totality of his Administration, and that is why DoJ IG Horowitz was locked out of the DoJ NSD by AG Holder.

    *THAT* is why this Russia Collusion/Impeachment Coup by Lawfare was put together.

    The DoJ “Parallel construction” regime was invented to hide the systematic and illegal use of FISA surveillance for internal surveillance of the Obama Regime’s political opponents to increase the Regime’s domestic power.

    This power was used in 2016, definitely was used in 2012 and the idea that Obama was “Selected not elected” by the Deep State in 2008 is definitely on the table.
