      Howdy Doody Gowdy isn’t fooling anyone any more. He got his ass handed to him for the Benghazi failure and he knows it. At least Darrell Issa gave it a good try but he ran up against a criminalized justice system with NO backing from the cowards in congress. Gowdy failed at his biggest political challenge Bigly!

      Gowdy is IMHO bought and paid for. He is a Kabuki dancer extraordinaire. Remember Benghazi. He stomped and puffed and huffed and strutted and then when he got Hillary in the chair, he did NOTHING. I think he’s been inserted in here to obstruct Nunes. I suspect those who own him get that we figured him out so he no longer is useful to them ergo he is leaving the House. The question is, who did they buy to take his place?

        Yy4u…sadly, I agree about Gowdy…such a disappointment from my Representative. I honestly thought he had the fire in his belly to go much further…a excellent speaker, knows the law, good prosecution record. I believe his wife is still a school teacher in SC…so it’s not the typical one attorney spouse working for a federal agency, etc. what happened along the way?
        Perhaps he’ll surprise us down the road and go into a slot where he can do something good for the Good Guys.

    Gowdy’s trust in the IG’s Report sounds like High School Civics and is worrisome (or is that fulsome) to hear from a supposedly savvy ex-Prosecutor who is supposedly leaving Politics forever in about 34 weeks. When your obstructor has a gun (as Rod Rosenstein and Bob Mueller have in the Grand Jury and subpoenas and assigned G-Men) and you only have a knife (as the Congressional investigators have in their practically unenforceable subpoenas given the need to enforce through a Congressional vote that will be tough to obtain), it makes no sense to give the obstructors the first shots in reliance on rescue by the Inspector General. Heck, the IG doesn’t even have subpoena power. And he is being overseen by the obstructors captive boss, anyway.

        How different is the IG System from such discredited internal investigations units such as the NYPD “Internal Affairs Division” which was criticized by the Knapp Commission in days of yore? The deck is loaded against any findings of misconduct. Not only does the IG NOT have the power to subpoena but the system eats up time. There is a Statute of Limitations, and yet the IG takes ages to write up a report…and if he hasn’t taken enough time, he can always take some more…and he does (time delay drip, drip, drip).

        Meanwhile, NOBODY is allowed to look behind the curtain. Not even the ARTICLE ONE elective branch of Government. Not even the ARTICLE TWO head of Government, nor his appointed AG, not when Congress is telling him not to interfere even when the DOJ is stonewalling Congress. Not even ARTICLE THREE courts, which will be met with a privilege stonewall that no one will be able to surmount. Certainly not within the five year SOL.

        So who runs the Real Government? Only people deep within the bowels really know. Their spouses too and the Democrats who hire them.

        Actually, lawyers don’t normally comment on subjects they haven’t briefed themselves on. That was a lawyerly response. But the rest of the interview he was well informed and hitting on exactly what parts of the leaks were criminal. He asked damned good questions on his cross with Comey. Some of those will probably help the IG immensely (hopefully). But I don’t want to give up on him. I think the Benghazi thing had him pull back the curtains and he saw the wizard (as in the Wizard of Oz). I think he was shocked at the dirtiness that the saw. He may have lost faith in the system. I’m really hoping we can pull him back. Who knows, they could have threatened him or wiretapped him too. We have seen how many agencies were weaponized and if the Obama Administration chose to go after Gowdy, we don’t know what happened. If they chose at one point during the Benghazi hearings that Gowdy was a nuisance, who know s what they did. I don’t think Brennan, for one, would have liked the way Gowdy was full-throttled in many parts of the Benghazi investigation.

              I agree. I think now we are beginning to see how Gowdy didn’t have a chance. They must have had Uranium One, the Hillary server scandal, and Benghazi surrounded by layers of bad actors protecting Hillary with people leaking false information, and never turning over documentation and outright lying (Lois Lerner as Exhibit A). Professional obfuscation at every turn. Never mind that Brennan was probably involved at some level too. I think I could have imagined one bad rogue group in the FBI and a couple of bad actors at the top, but now the FBI director and 2nd in command, CIA, UK, GCHQ, Australia, DOJ, and a Special Counsel being involved in a coordinated attack on a duly elected President is pretty shocking.

I think that is why the DOJ doesn’t want some of this stuff released to the pols, because it will be made public and will wreck the criminal investigation.

  15. Consider where we are now: The CIA’s John Brennan and the FBI Director James Comey under the command of President Obama turned their respective agencies into political weapons, and directed resources- including the planting of a mole in the Trump campaign- to prevent the election of President Trump.

    The question now is why in the hell was the FBI permitted to appoint a Special Counsel to investigate a scheme they themselves were running?

    The obvious answer is that the “Russian collusion” investigation, and especially the fraudulent FISA warrant and renewals are a desperate attempt to cover up an illegal political spying operation by making it appear to have been an on-going counter-intelligence investigation.

    Knowing this, there’s no longer any reason for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to “recuse” himself from anything because it’s all a farce. I now think Congress should hold Sessions in contempt and move quickly to impeach him and remove him from office if he doesn’t immediately comply with the congressional demands to give them the name of the spy and get to the bottom of this.

    It’s also getting harder to defend the precious snowflake “rank and file” government agents in the CIA, FBI, NSA, and other agencies. The entire government needs to be SCRUBBED- agent by agent, and anyone whose fingerprints are found on this needs to be hanged by the neck until they are dead.

    The mission of the Dept of Justice is to apply the Rule of Law. Sessions, as head, is the man on the spot. Sessions may be many things, but quick is not one of them. As he dithers, or sleeps, or chases pot smokers, the Trust of the American People is eroding faster than he can read his little speeches.

    Sessions could stop the erosion and start the return to The Rule of Law by Indicting Hillary for her earlier known crimes.

    Sessions could Indict Hillary this afternoon–but he won’t. Why? Failing to indict criminals for their crimes is in effect covering up the Criminals’ Conspiracy–which is in effect joining the Conspiracy to Obstruct Justice. Absent INDICTMENTS, Sessions is Guilty.

      I agree that Sessions needs to get her indicted well within the SOL which is coming up, but he first needs to move on the man who shrived her, Cardinal Comey. He needs to be indicted as the obstructor and fraud he is or his absolution will stand in the way of ever getting a conviction against Hillary. The indictments could be announced the same day (or Comey’s could even follow within a month or so), but both need to be brought down, preferably with Loretta Lynch. Loretta’s tarmac mate, Billy C, may be a stretch but that would be so sweet!

    Why is there a question mark?
    We already know the first mole agent.

    The agent mole in Trump’s Campaign was Dr. CARTER PAGE, pHd, IMO

    He was working on behalf of the Clintons, under the orders of his then-CIC President Barack Obama, but for one of the big 3 Intel agencies.

    Not asset, AGENT. FBI might consider an agent on loan from NSA or CIA to be an asset, but that does not make him less than an agent.

    People here have said Page isn’t bright? His impressive edu. resume proves otherwise. His other later not so impressive, but still decent, resumes are spook cover.

    Does anybody have info when/if Carter Page left the Navy? I cannot find it. I cannot find it asked not answered, wonder why?

    Of course Page might not have been the only one. When did he leave the campaign? That MIGHT give the date when the IC under BO may have inserted another agent mole to take his place.

    (Agents under cover do not have to be prominently placed. It depends on their assignment. If Page was merely to keep a low profile, listen and report, and plant more bugs, for example, why would he need to be really noticable, watched more closely within the campaign, and thus important enough to be in the press?)

        The original OFFICIAL STORY was that Carter Page’s trip to Moscow triggered the entire thing. The problem with it was the dossier. To put distance with the dossier, they shifted the start to LIAR PAPADOPOULOS and his incredible drinking adventure with Downer. So, not only is the FBI’s primary investigatory “trigger” a liar, but he is supposed to have credibility when inebriated as well.

        This could be very helpful for criminal charges because if they wrote the FISA application predicated on the phony dossier and on Carter Page being a possible Russian spy for the Title 1 warrant, they are in big trouble if Page was an FBI asset all along. Comey and McCabe can’t pretend they didn’t know he was on their payroll. I think (someone else can help me here) that the FISA court is supposed to be used exclusively for suspected foreign spies. If it turns out this American Carter Page was an FBI undercover agent, they had no basis to use that court or any Title 1 search emanating from it. That’s even leaving aside all of the other layers of lies in the application to create the false intelligence needed for the warrant.
        I personally believe Page is an FBI asset (no surprise there) and Halper was the source of the EC and got Papadoofus together with Downer for the false start to give cover to the DNC paid for dossier. Now I’m wondering if there wasn’t even another mole in the campaign as well. It does appear that the leaks have really dried up now.

We’ve got some good stuff on the burners, the Manafort and Russian troll cases, IG report coming up, and more. The deadline for big things to happen really is the mid-term elections. It’s not necessary that Hillary be wearing an orange jumpsuit by then, it’s just important for the public to know that Trump is remaining President and the Democrats engaged in some abuses and even crimes to prevent him from becoming President and oust him after he awas inaugurated. We need to retain the House and Senate majorities. If this scandals blows up in their faces in August of September, or even October, we’re good. Trump has proven himself to be an extremely strong individual who can carry on while enduring the worst attacks. Our best way to support him, IMO, is to remain positive (and realistic), be patient, and keep those GOP majorities in Congress.

    I question whether the FBI/DOJ would have had the gall to do what they did, if not greenlighted by the illegal alien, unConstitutional dirtbag, and Executive Office (Commander-in-Chief) usurper – aka HUSSEIN Obama.

    From Bob: “When the United States (Congress) did nothing in 2009 to prevent an identity fraud con-artist from being sworn in as the putative president, they set in stone they would never allow any action by Congress which even might reveal and have acted on the truth about Barry. Every member of Congress violated their sworn oath, “protect the Constitution from her enemies, both foreign and domestic.” They gave America’s government and her military to the enemy. Nancy Pelosi was especially guilty in covering for Obama’s ineligibility. After Obama was sworn in it became the job of Congress, especially leadership, to insure Obama was officially considered a legitimate president, hopefully, forever. They do this to protect themselves and the others complicit in the Obama fraud from being charged with what they consider a, “crime too big to prosecute.”.

    The condition of being ‘blackmailed by a putative black male’ still remains in the swamp. Don’t expect any draining until the legitimacy of HUSSEIN Obama’s presidency is duly questioned, then investigated by an individual in the federal government or a federal organization that was not gifted by Soros nor blackmailed by the CIA plant, Obama. Good luck finding that individual or organization.

  28. Anyone want to wager when the first indictment will be?
    Anyone want to water when the first arrest will occur?
    Anyone want to wager when the first trial will be held?
    Anyone want to guess how many perps will plead guilty w/o a trial and flip on higher-ups?
    Anyone think “it” will start before Mueller strikes again?\
    Just curious.

        I keep asking the same thing, but My acquaintances are scared shitless to open their mouths as soon as I pony up 100$ bet per indictment versus 1000$ that Trump will be put up for an impeachment vote. 10 indictments versus one vote to impeach… just a vote.. SILENCE FOLLOWS!

      The wording of your list of questions reminded me of this. Cohen’s a socialist, but if the words are applied to what has been going on with this scandal, it fits.:

      Everybody Knows
      Leonard Cohen

      Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
      Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
      Everybody knows the war is over
      Everybody knows the good guys lost
      Everybody knows the fight was fixed
      The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
      That’s how it goes
      Everybody knows

      Everybody knows that the boat is leaking
      Everybody knows that the captain lied
      Everybody got this broken feeling
      Like their father or their dog just died
      Everybody talking to their pockets
      Everybody wants a box of chocolates
      And a long-stem rose
      Everybody knows

      And everybody knows that the Plague is coming
      Everybody knows that it’s moving fast
      Everybody knows that the naked man and woman
      Are just a shining artifact of the past
      Everybody knows the scene is dead
      But there’s gonna be a meter on your bed
      That will disclose
      What everybody knows

      And everybody knows that you’re in trouble
      Everybody knows what you’ve been through
      From the bloody cross on top of Calvary
      To the beach of Malibu
      Everybody knows it’s coming apart
      Take one last look at this Sacred Heart
      Before it blows
      And everybody knows

    Mini-tome follows. Sift and ignore part or all.

    Flep’s thoughtful comment:

    https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/05/11/kimberley-strassel-trey-gowdy-and-john-ratcliffe-discuss-ongoing-fbi-and-doj-issues/comment-page-1/#comment-5368016

    Excerpt: “I truly believe that they want to have our President out of the country when the arrests happen. I also believe that the majority of them will be arrested simultaneously. 75+ people both in our country and around the world.”

    It is not inherent cynicism on my part to believe nothing I of what I “hear” and only half of what I “see”. And always believe what people tell me about themselves. These personal policies, when applied, provide a filter that helps me choose where and when to invest my own, perhaps emotional, response.

    Beyond that, I fully understand that “what I believe” about others’ actions has very little to do with what they will actually say or do next. When it comes to human beings, even reputation based on evidence is not a sure thing.

    My reactions, responses, beliefs, assumptions, hopes, desires, opinions, and expectations are not what define or determine reality. Reality has its own life span and does not rest on my perspective or projection.

    Just as the years and months surrounding Nixon’s resignation revealed how the individuals involved (including dear Alexander Butterfield) would behave under pressure “when everything was at stake”, so we are now in the process of learning how hundreds of industrial-strength, career politicians and operatives behave(d) under pressure.

    The pressure under which they fail in this situation is not the present and public thing we pick apart and evaluate. It’s the pressure of their own thoughts and the closed conversations over the past three years, secret actions they thought would remain a secret. These public things are just uncertain shadows from which we attempt to extrapolate what has already happened.

    There is a point where hyper-alertness is just exhausting, not helpful at all. There is a reason that the RPM indicator on my car has a section that is highlighted in red: frequently operating in that range of intensity will eventually damage the engine.

    I am not a fatalist but I find it sensible to let reality reveal itself as it will in its own time. It will all be clear soon enough, both in national and personal life.

    The song Stella posted yesterday on another thread – “My Give-a-Damn’s Busted” was timely – an over-zealous assumption about the degree to which our own strong perspectives can control outcomes (expectations/projection) can certainly exhaust us to the point of practical despair. I clicked a ‘like’ on her post.

    But I know that I am not compelled to choose between hyper-alertness and high hopes on one hand and complete disengagement or despair on the other.

    Reality has a very long continuum in both directions. I’m standing on one little speck of that continuum, I can observe and watch and let reality play out.

      Sharon, the reality is…we have no choice in the matter. I, too, am willing to allow it all to play out and I believe it will happen soon.

        Agree. For those of us who can only sit and watch, what’s the real alternative to letting it all play out? However, I think each individual has a choice over whether the attitude is hopefulness or despair.

    Do you notice Jeff Sessions still missing in action? After the IG report, he will be one of casualty of war including his sidekick Rosie to be ousted. Guiliani will ask them to resign and take the hike for tearing the country apart. Then PDJT will keep his promise to shrink our bloated blowhard spying agencies.
