House Intel Committee Chairman Devin Nunes Announces Plans To Hold Attorney General Sessions in Contempt of Congress…

In rather stunning news this morning, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes informs the listening audience he plans to hold Attorney General Jeff Sessions in contempt of congress for refusing to comply with a subpoena. According to comments within a Fox News interview (see below) there is something important to Chairman Nunes the FBI and DOJ are intentionally withholding.

The issue is a little clouded because Chairman Nunes sent a classified letter to the DOJ requesting a specific response about the status of a specific person, and their engagement within issues of the DOJ and FBI conducting a counterintelligence operation. No-one knows who this “individual” might be. However the DOJ did write back to Chairman Nunes last Thursday and said they would not comply.

.

We have no way of knowing if the DOJ refusal relates to withholding evidence for a valid reason, or if the FBI/DOJ is refusing to comply because they are part of a cover-up of malicious conduct.  Like many issues in this ongoing dynamic you can read valid and invalid motives into current action.  The response letter from the DOJ is below:

  1. Nunes is not approaching this in a vacuum. He has seen documents before and after they have been redacted. He has solid reasons for distrusting the integrity of the DOJ being run by Jeff Sessions.

    Had not all of that been building up, he might have cut some slack. Enough is enough, and God bless Devin Nunes for being fed up.

      If Devin Nunes gets to see this, so does Adam Schiff the leaker.

      And Devin KNOWS it. So this makes ME question Nunes’ purposes if he pursues it.

      Especially since the response includes “White House.”

      Nunes cannot be FOR PDJT and also against PDJT/WH. So which is it Nunes?

      Are you more loyal to leaky Schiff getting info out to his party
      Or
      To PDJT?

        Look, this is not a standard executive branch vs. legislative branch turf protection battlefield. The is the crime of the century or two.

        The executive branch should be bending over backward, letting sunlight into this monster-scandal, and not treating it like a state secret or standard federal crime. The public should be the recipients of data by the boatload being released, instead of dribbling it out like favors.

        Here we are, 10 months after flippers started flipping, and the only comprehensive narrative that has been given to the public so far has been compiled by Devin Nunes. Instead of flying solo, he should have had a whole flight of white hats raining down information by now.

        To those arguing for standard bureaucratic response? Bah!

          But it will be leaked if it is seen by certain persons on that committee. Schiff.

            The arguments for secrecy at this point are moot. Lobbying to engage in trickery is a too-cute-by-half violation of Occam’s Razor. The evidence either exists, or it doesn’t. Dragging things out in the hope of bamboozling professional lifetime scammers is an amatueur’s wet dream.

                There comes a time when a decision is made between timeliness of prosecution and hoping for more evidence. We are well past that stage. The cost/benefit ratio is not in the favor of dragging things out anymore.

                The cards have to be laid down, sooner or later.

                  Not every case was begun the minute Trump was elected.

                  And the FISA abuse case was not mentioned in the Nunes response.

                  There are more cases underway, and suspects that did not (directly and immediately) have to do with the FISA warrant.

                  For instance, what if Podesta is singing like a bird and there are VIP’s who joined him inRe: pedogate, then Podesta and (whomever VIP) might be the topic here. Just one of many possibilities.

                  Something regarding the Iran Deal, something regarding Uranium 1. Something regarding Clintons or Foundation, Something regarding the last administration, not this one. Who knows?

                  We have been so involved lately with FISA that we automatically think of it. But not every case that is BIG falls under FISA and the small group. And there is NOTHING in that response that says FISA.

                  You are right. I’m sure if we keep investigating for trumps entire term we can figure out who the second gunman in the grassy knoll was. We won’t prosecute him because we’ll need another couple of terms to perfect our case. The theory sounds so much like our political parties for the last 40yrs. Elect us and we’ll fix it next term, it’s so complicated….
                  IG report is being delayed because they’re negotiating with the criminals which in this case is Mueller and team. Mueller is seeing how much of the presidency they can eat up and how broad trumps shoulders are to carry the beatings. They are terrorists and it needs to stop.
                  I do hope that kbr is right. It’s poor odds though. Once Mueller gets a pass for most of his gang he’ll stop the nonsense, but the longer it stretches out the longer he wins.
                  It has to stop. Ig report has to eventually get there, but my guess is they don’t want to play their aces, ever. At some point we have to play a card though. Waiting for a perfect case from Beauregard sessions is poor odds.

BUT… wait … investigations must not be compromised? I think it would be best for everyone to wake up to the reality of what is going on right before our eyes instead of trusting a DOJ-FBI that has been the heart of the swamp and lawlessness since at least Robert Mueller’s tenure as FBI Director. The swamp is complicit and the swamp will protect its own. It is that simple and to think otherwise is wishful thinking. A.G. Sessions is sitting by and seeing institutions and the Constitution crumble and does nothing? It is placing an awful lot of trust in tainted people. Think about it and let me know a year from now if feelings are the same…

                Also what matters is the fact that when to info is presented, our DOJ doesn’t indict. Why hasn’t Lerner, Comey, and McCabe been indicted? The evidence is there and in McCabe’s case, recommended for prosecution, but nothing happens. I feel bad for the thousands of hours SD and others have put in to bring all this information to view, and often proven with documentation, only to have it ignored by the DOJ. I bet when the IG report comes out eventually after numerous delays, not one person is indicted, and you will all realize the “plan” (not Trump’s) was actually a cover up. In the end, Mueller’s investigation will end, Trump will still be president, and the deep state will be business as usual.

                Here is the problem you have–the evidence you are trying to protect is already where known leakers can abuse it, or even destroy it. Any evidence can be tainted PRIOR to it being made public, such as any FD-302s altered on orders of McCabe or anyone else in authority, and those kinds of activities have gone on in there probably from the very founding of first the DOJ, and then the FBI, and with a lot less at stake. Something like some little CEO of some little company who tripped over his tongue at an interview and revealed something that might be illegal could only go through with his okay gets edited into no the ether.

                Let it all come out. Declassify all of it, and do it with speed so the public gets it all, and then let the public decide. I don’t think with this level of systemic corruption we have anywhere else to go other than a totalitarian state or civil war.

              Yes, we have discovery laws. Federally, Discovery does not commence until immediately after the suspect’s arraignment.

              Normally, DOJ does not reveal suspects, much less evidence, prior to indictments. Why? Because to do so could violate individual privacy rights; prejudice the rights of a defendant; unfairly damage the reputation of a person, put a witness or law enforcement officer in danger; or jeopardize an investigation or case.

              Not to mention that a suspect could destroy evidence not yet obtained or flee the jurisdiction.

              We do not have the request for (?) The response does not say (?)

              So, my friend, we might say that due to the very limited information we have on this singular thread topic thus far,

              which is, as I understand it, the secret ask for info on (?) , and the response to that secret request not mentioning (?) …

              FISA, Mueller, recusal, small group, ect may be all “off topic” and moot anyway.

              (If it turns out to even BE anything about FISA/SMALL GROUP/MUELLER I also think it is high time to do something, get something out there.

              I too am frustrated with recusal and it is high time for unrecusal or leave.)

It seems as if we all picked a politician to be the AG when we needed a fearless Patriot like Trump in that position(Guliani a politician, but also a proven leader and patriot). What a shame. I echo most everyone’s sentiments on here, the tipping point is now over the edge. This month is the last month people sit still and let this fiasco and soft coup continue while our Senators fiddle in the distance, with their fake outrage and while Ryan and McConnell blast Trump every time they can, drafting up statutes preventing Trump from firing Mueller. What do the republican senators care if Trump fires Mueller or not? Hint: they do care, but about themselves. Nunes and a few others are the true patriots here as well as those military officers, gvt officials and other white hats that read CTH.

                People talk about anecdotal evidence that there are thousands of sealed subpoenas ready to go. I do not believe that because I have not heard or read any credible source mention this. Please correct me if I am wrong. Rumors don’t count.

                Still folks, we wait on SESSIONS. This guy has the country in his hands and he sits, does nothing and expects us to trust him while Mueller runs roughshod over our constitution.
                I will predict that if nothing happens by May 18, 2018. The complaints will get louder and louder for Trump to step in and enact justice on the so called “Justice” Department. Guliani already has told him how to do this the right way, and it does NOT start with firing Mueller.

            Just now getting through all the comment pages of these posts. Good debate with Coeurdaleneman. It’s a quandary to be sure. Some of us believe that there are indictments coming, others think it will all be swept under the rug. Fair points laid out by both sides.

            I think our side is so used to being kicked in the teeth, leaving politicians & government miscreants walking, it’s difficulty to believe that we’d actually win on this. Understandable. My hubby and I have discussed it the same, where, one minute frustration, the next hope, and then the next doubt.

            We’ve cast our lot with AG Sessions and President Donald Trump. If we’re wrong, so be it. But I don’t think so – POTUS knows these creatures can’t walk, two things: 1) if faith is to be restored in the Justice system, then the big fish have to fry like the little guys (us) do, and 2) their efforts to take down a sitting president won’t cease, and remains a danger to the Republic – the Country.

            Rep Nunes may have a source (M.I.?) re the status of ‘this person’ and now sees the info showing up in the alt media recently. If it’s who I think it is … Rep. Nunes likely indirectly deduced confirmation between his source and alt media reports re ‘this persons’ (secret immunity deal?) status. The refusal by DOJ to confirm and the list of national security, personal safety and investigative secrecy exemptions has likely provided Nunes with as much confirmation as he is able to deduce.

            @KBR, I’m a frequent reader here, I comment once in a while. I’ve been reading the treat and I think your points are valid. But let me explain myself to you a bit. I’m 68 and have been married to the same wonderful woman for 43 years. we know each other like a book. My wife has told e that over the years she says I have an uncanny ability to judge a person just by watching and listening to them. Now with that said I’m not right all the time, but I’m right a lot!
            The fact that we can’t be sure that Nunez is a white or a black hat because of the scenario you proposed is very interesting to say the least. Lets face it we can’t tell because the state is very deep and corrupt. Now with that said let me just point out that watching and listening to Nunez I’m pretty sure that he’s a white hat! Why? Because when he speaks he looks almost angry, like he wants to say more but doesn’t because it could hurt his cause. Just the mannerisms and facial expressions leads me to my conclusion. Schiff on the other hand? If he ever walked into my house to sell me insurance or anything else I’d kick him out in a heartbeat! Sessions? for some reason I can’t get a read on him, he comes across to me as a tweeter. So I don’t know. I’m hoping he’s got a white hat for our sake. I don’t know where this is going but I appreciate you and others here for having an adult conversation.Thank you!

      My Sense-O-Meter read-out about who actually wrote the Steele memos is shifting away from Nellie and the CIA back to the Brits and MI6.

      But I’m still rooting for Nellie!

      It’s possible she was hired by Fusion GPS not to create the Steele memos, but either to do nothing, or to monitor Russian media for anti-Hillary tidbits. That was her CIA contractor job before. In that case the January 2017 Intel Report about Russians and the election might be a 100% Hillary paid product. 1/3 CrowdStrike on the alleged DNC hack, 1/3 Fusion GPS with the Steele Memo, and 1/3 GPS for all the work in the report about how some Russian media were copying bad things Americans said on twitter and FB.

        After internalizing the events of the last week, I got to thinking today.

        How is it that suddenly two judges have slapped down the Mueller team. One with Manafort, and another with Russian Collusion?

        We have seen judge shopping for years but it has never been allowed an exploration or adjudication.

        But this last week, two court cases, which SHOULD have been cleverly judge-shopped, were not?

        Peter Strzok has been sitting in a windowless office for awhile. Is it possible that he has described how the judge shopping scam was working? Have the enablers been removed? Louie Gohmert may have been involved in removing Tanya Chutkan from the GPS case. And then there is Contreras. Ellis suddenly gets one Mueller case a month ago, and Friedrich, a Trump appointee, is residing over the other?

        Has the Contreras cover has been blown?

    • Couldn’t this individual be Carter Page? The media was making him out as some type of dope that didn’t really know what he was doing, but if you look at his backgroud, he’s anything but a dope. Graduated top 10% in the Naval academy, Trident scholar program, worked 5 years in intelligence for the Navy, Masters in National Security from Georgetown, MBA from NYU, did a fellowship with Council on Foreign Relations.

      And it’s stated he’s worked with the FBI and DOJ in the past and there’s compelling evidence he worked as an undercover FBI employee that helped get the March 2016 conviction of couple Russian spies. It’s very possible Carter Page is an intelligence agent that was planted in the Trump campaign. In 1992 he worked on the Clinton transition team.as an intern while still in the Naval Academy. Maybe Nunes is trying to understand how much work he’s done with the DOJ and FBI and if it’s extensive, then why in the world would he have a Title 1 FISA warrant placed on him, which would mean the government believes he could be a foreign agent.

      His office for Global Energy Capital, where he’s the only employee, is right next to Trump Tower. He had the Title 1 FISA warrant put on him, but has never been charged with anything even though it was renewed 3 times and lasted a year. Maybe he was put into the Trump campaign to do undercover counterintelligence. His trip to Russia in June 2016, was a key aspect of the collusion angle and the Steele dossier. Also, he only worked on the campaign for a few months, but his presence became very significant.

      Yes . . .

      Sessions is recused from anything “Russian collusion.” So Nunes is trying to apply pressure not to Sessions, per se, but to Donald! Donald – for the obvious reasons that Sessions is busy with Huber, has thousands of indictments, ordered MCabe fired, is, as are all of us, awaiting Horowitz’s final report.

      We want justice done – agreed? We gripe about how it never seems to fully happen – right? Yes. Donald is as serious as a heart attack about getting this done right, and is Jeff Beau were not where Donald has wanted him (skip the chatter about Donald saying this or that – you ought to know how he works on that count by now!) – then Donald would have already fired Jeff Beau.

      Mid-terms are 6 months away, and too many folks are getting apoplectic and stomping their feet and demanding “NOW!” And if things are not immediately forthcoming from Horowitz (remember – this last delay is about HIllary!) – why, by God, who cares! Perp walk someone!!! We want action NOW!!!

      And that is exactly why the other side always gets away with shyte. This is not our show, nor is it Devin Nunes’ show – this is Donald’s show . . .

        JB,
        I feel like a voice in the wilderness, especially recently, when I comes to emphasizing the complexity of obtaining convictions given the facts spilling from this fountain of mendacity.
        Amateurs talking about warfare talk about strategy and tactics. Professionals consider logistics: how do I get my armed force there, feed them, supply them, and get them into the fight.
        In law one must consider the other sides constitutional and procedural rights. If you want to obtain a conviction, you must handle the matter in a way that properly indicts, arraigns, bails, provides notice, exculpates, presents evidence to meet the beyond reasonable doubt standard etc. Those decisions are largely procedural, or logistical, if you follow.
        Impulsive, uninformed, decision making in either martial or criminal matters will lead to failure. The people who can’t seem to grasp this mechanical concept, and the requirement that facts and rules drive military and criminal proceedings, quite frankly, wear on me.
        If the facts are proven, I want convictions obtained that result in the executions of Seditionists.
        Screaming out that Sessions is incompetent, when one can’t see the requirements for his competent performance, reveals misunderstanding.
        If 2 months from now there are no indictments, I will admit error. McCabe is already likely indicted. He is the first of many.
        We can’t see atoms with the human eye, but we know they exist, we can split certain types, and know others fuse.
        The evidence is there that Sessions is arranging legal dominoes that will blow your mind when they topple in order.
        Impulsivness is failure . Thanks, JB, for understanding and remaining patient.

          This is a huge boatload of work that suddenly got dropped in Donald’s and Jeff Beau’s laps. This deep state and swamp thing is at least 50 years old and probably more. And all of the things you said apply. Reading I thought immediately – “Aha! Kindred spirit!”

          Sundance does a yeoman’s work in compiling stuff most writing here wouldn’t know otherwise. Q is uncanny, and it seems no coincidence they are both on the same page most all of the time. They are beyond the usual “political chatter” out there, and they get there before the chatterers.

          And I trust Donald. He is playing a more dangerous role against the deep state than most can know. Having those supposedly on his side jumping the shark every time something doesn’t happen as, or when, they think it should, undermines matters – especially for newbies trying to figure matters out. You closed out –

          Impulsiveness is failure.

          Yes, indeed. Donald did not become a billionaire, nor did he beat Hillary soundly, by being impulsive, or emotional. From the first question at the very first debate where he demolished Megyn – he has always been moving according to his plan, not all the suggestions of those who don’t even know what they are doing or saying, never mind what he knows he is doing and saying.

In practice we all have seen nothing but long-delayed release of DOJ/FBI redacted documents, slow-walked and redacted in the name of national security, only to unredact them and we only see things that embarrass the FBI – no national security issues. This demonstration of behavior is vitally important physical evidence of DOJ/FBI’s approach.

      Many people keep repeating that Hillary Clinton will never see the inside of a prison cell. I’m not convinced of that. I’d rather see a best effort at getting justice than simply giving it all up so easily.

      And Trump’s famous line in the presidential debate against HRClinton, “…you’d be in jail…” Is enough to set her free unless there is a demonstrably clear disconnection between President Trump and HRClinton being convicted of her countless crimes. The very idea that this is somehow a “political prosecution” was a narrative started before the president was sworn into office. That detail must absolutely be destroyed. The president can’t be involved and Sessions can’t be involved too deeply either. The risks to achieving the best results are too great.

        The second is more important in a different way…Candidate Trump was indicating that he knew a great deal. Back then, the private email server was the driver for our sentiment “Lock her up” – but I think Donald Trump knew much more about her misdeeds, even then, which is a point that we shouldn’t lose site of, or lose hope.

              I just read a story from Daily Caller that wrote about an interview that Laura Ingram had on her show on Fox Friday night. She was jumping Devin for not reading the documents that he had requested as chairman of his committee.
              At first I was a little taken aback that she would call our Chairman Nunes because he has fought so hard for our President.
              Upon reading a little further, it seems he has been deferring to…ah hem…Trey Gowdy to let him know what else he (Gowdy) needs from the DOJ, etc.
              I would appreciate it if someone could post either the Daily Csller article from tonight or the clip from Laura’s show from Friday nite.

              It makes me wonder if the subpoena we are discussing on AG Sessions was really from Howdy Gowdy by way of twisting Nunes arm.

Words of caution about anything from financial harm to threats of assassination can turn a man.

            Look at General Flynn. Word has it Mueller threatened to prosecute his son unless he cooperated and entered a plea of guilty. This is how they work. So don’t assume Nunes is untouchable. That’s not likely true at all.

As I stated earlier, we are 10 months downstream after flippers began to flip, and yet the public is still uptight and in the dark about the scandal of our times. WRONG! That should not be the case.

Like, oh, I don’t know… maybe Barack Obama. If in the end it turns out that we HAD to wait and let it all drag on a little longer in order to be 100% certain THAT conspirator was taken down. I’m not even gonna guess WHY the wait may have been needed, but if that turns out to be what’s been going on, I think we’ll all agree that the wait was well worth it.

        coeurdalaneman, I like how you are thinking. The trouble with many here investing so much in following a ‘preferred’ hoped for narrative, is that they might miss the point of just seeing for what it is and not what is imagined (and hoped for) but that old Occam’s razor I keep pointing to. It is what it is, its what they do and even say, not what we imagine.

        And it ain’t noble or grand or anything else but a massive load of swamp-like men and women thrashing around trying to save their butts and to keep from losing their ‘lifetime pensions’ and other perks – and ummm… as they are completely sure jail is never going to happen. When its run through this filter, it all makes sense. I

        have seen absolutely no proof so far that Horowitz is doing anything other than ‘ working inside’ the swamp ecosystem, trying to clean it up for public consumption. So far all that has happened is a criminal has been lightly smacked on the hand (1 only) – e.g McCabe has been the chosen scapegoat offering to the hungry hoards who long for blood. He has merely lost his job, but he wont as it turns out lose his pension I hear. The other crooks, have simply stayed on, out of the spotlight mind you, into quiet areas in the back office, but have now chosen to ‘retire’ from employment gracefully. Wray continues to cover for them.

        We will see, but I suspect – the stalling is linked up to the stalling of the pending disappointment everyone here (and in the universe of longed for justice for the people) is going to feel when the ‘feather duster’ does come out and gives a light brush across the knuckles of the filthy swamp waters.

After all, his bigger crimes (as an insurance policy plotter) are interwined with his lies to cover his behind. It’s my sense that lowering the boom on him is only minorly delayed until the entire package is assembled. That being said, they had better step it up.

          Now, I want to take this opportunity to apologize to the people of this country, especially my supporters. For the past several months, I along with many others, including Attorney General Sessions, have had to be less than forthcoming in our public statements and actions. I’ve often claimed that I was disappointed in Jeff, when in reality nothing could be further from the truth. It turns out that this — the investigation into this conspiracy — created one of the very, very rare scenarios when deception became a necessity.

      Astute questions. Certainly food for thought, particularly.your second paragraph, I was puzzled by that also. If you read the response letter included in this article, you will note that it is signed by Stephen E. Boyd, Assistant Attorney General, not Jeff Sessions.

      This makes you wonder if Jeff Sessions is being kept out of the information loop. Is there a shadow DOJ running its own operation? Is Sessions aware of this? is the OIG aware of this? And why the reference to the White House? Is the White House aware of this?

      Devin Nunes is a hero, and has done a great job, but I am wondering if he has jumped the gun here. The criticism of Jeff Sessions may well be valid, but is there enough evidence and detail to justify calls for impeachment? So far, I am not convinced.

      Frustrating and aggravating and all as it is, perhaps at this stage patience and strategy will be crucial to cleaning the Augean stables. It has to be remembered that the covert operations of the Deep State have been at least 30 years in the making. The draining of the swamp is not going to happen over night. The animosity towards Sessions can only be described as Sessions Derangement Syndrome, since it is not based on logic or evidence. This is not bias on my part, but common sense.

            It’s not about my frustration, does anyone think this is healthy for the country to be going through? Seems to me the slow and methodical approach to delivering justice runs the risk of 1) continued lawlessness from the conspirators (i.e. raiding personal attys and walking off with atty-client priviliged materials to be used for the 2020 campaign and NYT articles) and 2) more time for the conspirators to cover tracks and destroy evdence.

    Consider before you fall for this childishness that Congress is filled with leakers who would love to compromise the investigations into their criminality. So you trust Nunes over Sessions?

    Sessions serves the president. Nunes does not. The deep state is losing badly. Coincidence that this happens NOW?

    Sessions maybe forcing a chance to testify and declas lots of incriminating material. Get in like Flynn. Rogers is gonna testify soon. THE STORM!

    Who loves Sessions now? The left. Why? Because Trump poor-mouthed him. Want lose that advantage? Fire Sessions.

    Everyone assumes that Nunes is a good guy. He may be. But a lot of that respect is based on a comparison of him to say….Schiff.

    Congress is bad news. The whitest of hats are still gray over there. Rand Paul for example . Sessions is right. To hell with their subpoenas. You see the letter. That ship sailed with the last admin. NOW they care about OVERSIGHT? What happened to Holder/Obama after the contempt charge? NOTHING! All theater.

    I suggest that the “specific individual” might be Sergei Skripal, the former Russian Intelligence officer who was poisoned in the United Kingdom in March 2018. The MI6 officer who handled Skripal before and after Skripal was imprisoned in Russia was Pablo Miller, who has retired and now works for a private company, Orbis Business Intelligence.

    That company employs both Miller and Christopher Steele, who wrote the dossier.

    Perhaps Skripal helped provide information — as a Russian Intelligence “insider” or as someone who knew such “insiders” — to Steele for the dossier. If so, then Skripal might have known too much about the dossier, and that is why he was poisoned.

    Think objectively. What would cause loss of life in the context of releasing information that would make its way to the American public???

    Options:

    a. So is the loss of lives about assets or people that in harms way? No. We know that is an investigation without a predicate crime based on intel from Russians and a former brit intel guy (think partnerships).

    b. There have been rumors that the next batch of release would be explosive because gov employees were talking about murder. If the American public were to find out that these rumors were real, a cold situation could get hot over night including civil unrest. I won’t go into the exact theories.

    The DOJ letter says “Could not,” not “Would not,” be responsive to Nunes’ request. imo
    The inclusion of ODNI and White House adds credence to DOJ’s letter.

    There are several probs. An obvious prob is DOJ’s history of withholding and redacting docs for no good reason, recently shown with the Gen Flynn redactions in the re-issue of the House Intel Report.

    Another prob is, why did Nunes not respond to DOJ’s offer to discuss other ways to accommodate Nunes’ request?

    Also, is AG Jeff cognizant of what is going on here? A good case could be made that Legislative Affairs is not informing AG Jeff of these correspondences. Hey Martha – pls tell AG Jeff what is going on here, thx so much.

    Considering the above, plus more, the very best way to obtain AG Jeff’s attention is to hold AG Jeff in contempt. If nothing else, AG Jeff may finally see that yes Houston, we have a prob.

    I can’t say the same for the FBI or Justice Department.

    Red flags for me have been the failure of the FBI to seize the Strzok/Page personal gmail, including the gmail “drafts.” Their work emails SAY they are using outside email for “work” messages, and the gmail “drafts” certainly appear to be used to conceal. Baker is allowed to retire and proudly join the “resistance.” It will be telling to see if Lisa Page gets a job in the private sector of the swamp.

    The biggest red flag is WHY HASN’T McCabe been indicted yet?

    Second red flag, has been all the BS redactions for “national security.” NOT ONE THING the FBI and or Justice Department tried to hide from us, because of “national security,” has turned out to be anything other than evidence of FBI/Justice malfeasance, and what sure looks to me to be criminal malfeasance.

    Sessions has an excellent resume. Based on my training and experience, 29 yrs LE I have little confidence in Sessions. I am convinced Mueller, his team, and RR are not interested in anything other than finding a way, legal or not, to get Trump. Why doesn’t Sessions see this?

    I believe the Clintons are the most dishonest crooks ever to be in US politics. I would LOVE to have been able to investigate them. But I would not have broken the law, or framed them, even if that meant I could not make a case.
    Even if the IG’s team does their job, which appears likely, I have no confidence the Justice Department will do theirs.

    It got me thinking that maybe, since Nunes’ committee is compromised (notice they’re quiet these days?), Nunes has taken on a new role. He’s writing letters asking for specific information to be provided by the DOJ. He learns certain things from the type of DOJ responses (whole, partly redacted or refused documents). What he learns, he shares. With whom I can only guess.

    I think the Horowitz investigators and Huber prosecutors are scrambling to get things ready for the release of the next two reports, and they need breathing room. Hence, the Nunes letter writing role.

      That’s exactly what I think Nunes is doing. Or pointing out that Sessions has lost control. This is the first step in getting rid of Sessions.

  45. In my humble opinion, both Sessions and Rosenstein should be impeached and fired.
    It seems as if Sessions would rather throw the book at some poor druggie caught with 1/2g of weed in his possession and let all the corrupt/seditious politicians and senior Govt officials skate. Shameful!!!

    Regarding the last SD post on this thread, I believe the FISC warrants and cases Contreras approved includes the basis of the FBI investigation of Trump/Russia that was transferred to Mueller.

    If Sessions is impeached. Rosenstein is fired. Who is next in line. When Sally Yates was fired President Trump changed Obama’s line-up to this:

    Attorney General (Sessions)
    Deputy Attorney General (Rosenstein)
    Associate Attorney General (Open, Rachel Brand resigned Feb 2018)
    United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia (Tracy Doherty-McCormick Acting)
    United States Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois (John R. Lausch, Jr.)
    United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri (Timothy A. Garrison)

    Timothy A. Garrison. Marine Corp. Veteran. 04/26/2018 – Confirmed by the Senate by Voice Vote.

    Here is the new Attorney General I want for President Trump and our Nation:

    Meet the U.S. Attorney
    Timothy A. Garrison
    U.S. Attorney Timothy A. Garrison
    Tim Garrison is the United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri.

    Garrison is an eighth generation Missourian, and grew up in Greene County. He graduated magna cum laude from Drury University with a degree in political science, and holds a Master of Public Administration degree and a law degree from the University of Missouri.

    Garrison received his officer’s commission after graduating from Marine Corps Officer Candidates School in 2003, and served as a military prosecutor. His active duty military career took him to duty stations on the East Coast, West Coast, and Iraq.

    In 2007, Garrison left active duty and returned with his family to Missouri, where he served as a federal prosecutor with the United States Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Missouri. Garrison’s efforts focused on large-scale interstate and international drug trafficking organizations and violent criminals, but also included firearms offenses, tax evasion, sex crimes, and illegal immigration. He served in the district’s Springfield office until his appointment as United States Attorney.

    Since leaving active duty, Garrison has continued to serve in the Marine Corps Reserves. In 2014, he deployed to Afghanistan’s Helmand Province as the Chief of Operational Law for an eight-nation multinational force. Garrison is a distinguished graduate of both the Marine Corps’ Expeditionary Warfare School and Command and Staff College. He currently serves as Deputy Legal Counsel in the Office of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon. A lieutenant colonel, Garrison’s personal decorations include the Combat Action Ribbon, the Meritorious Service Medal, two Navy & Marine Corps Commendation Medals, and the Navy & Marine Corps Achievement Medal.

    Garrison has received awards from the Army Judge Advocate General’s Legal Center and School for excellence in trial advocacy, and from the Missouri Bar Foundation for his appellate advocacy before the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit.

    If everything Sundance has reported here holds true (big ugly we’ve waited and waited on), does that make Nunes a globalist trying take down Sessions? Lou Dobbs and others want him out as well, is that the same same story? OIG needs to get the ball rolling now. I want heads on a stick!
