Inspector General Horowitz Submits Draft Report of Clinton Email Investigation For Principal Review…

Inspector General Michael Horowitz has submitted the “Draft Report” of his OIG investigation to the principals involved. The IG investigation encompasses the FBI and DOJ conduct during the 2015/2016 Hillary Clinton investigation. The Draft Report encompasses the findings.

The Draft Report review is the last review phase prior to the Final report being released. The Draft Report review allows the principals to provide input on the facts identified and outlined within the draft.

Responses from the principals about the facts outlined in the draft report are then reviewed, cleared for addition if appropriate, and included in the Final Report. The Draft Report is the first time the DOJ and FBI Principals (only those officials who remain inside the DOJ and FBI) get to see the underlying documentary evidenced gathered in the 17-month-long investigation.

Wall Street Journal – Multiple subjects of a report on the Justice Department’s handling of a 2016 investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email use have been notified that they can privately review the report by week’s end, signaling t he long-awaited document is nearing release.

The report is likely to reignite the volatile debate over the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s handling of the Clinton probe, and it will put Michael Horowitz, the Justice Department’s inspector general, in a familiar place—taking aim at members of the law enforcement community.

Those invited to review the report were told they would have to sign nondisclosure agreements in order to read it, people familiar with the matter said. They are expected to have a few days to craft a response to any criticism in the report, which will then be incorporated in the final version to be released in coming weeks. (more)

♦Expanding on The Process. The Final IG Report is a statement of fact. The Draft Review contains all of the statements of facts and allows investigated parties an opportunity to provide input toward any fact statement within the draft.

Prior to the Draft Review there is a massively exhaustive reference check undertaken by the IG “referencer”.

The referencer could be a person or a group of people depending on the size of the report.

The referencer has the responsibility for going through every statement of fact and providing the citation or footnote for the assertion. The person(s) doing the reference review has/have the most arduous of tasks.

The referencer checks every sentence, every assertion, and ensures only provable facts with citations are part of the report. Every assertion of fact must be cited (or footnoted) to include the investigative material that proves the fact.

Remember, the final IG report is an assembled outline of facts. The final IG report will not include opinion, motive, or intent from the report author. All outlined opinions, motives and intentions within the IG report are those drawn from the statements of the people and groups investigated. All opinions expressed are those of the individuals inside the report.

The person(s) doing the reference checks, goes through the report line-by-line and references the supporting investigative documentation. A massively time consuming part of the report generation.

When the referencing process is completed, the draft report is sent out to the principals for comment on the draft report findings and recommendations. This is where the process is RIGHT NOW. If the principals return comments on the “draft”, their comments must be cleared by the person(s) doing the reference check, and may be included in the final draft.

Then the report goes to print.

More Key Points:

♦First, the draft report is reviewed internally. Only the principal officers who are currently inside the investigated agency get to see it. Those officials must sign comprehensive Non Disclosure Agreements, subject to criminal prosecution if they violate the NDA.

Former Officials, or employees who have left the agency: ex. James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page, James Baker, Jim Rybicki, Michael Kortan and all of the officials who have left the FBI will not get to see the draft report. [Now you know why Lisa Page and James Baker were dispatched last week.]

The same IG rules of Draft Report distribution apply on the Main Justice side of the DOJ and (DOJ-NSD) (DOJ-National Security Division).  Loretta Lynch, Sally Yates, Mary McCord, John Carlin, David Laufman, etc. do not get to see the report. Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Asst. AG Rod Rosenstein will review the draft report and control who they allow to review.

On the FBI side, Director Christopher Wray will review the draft report along with Asst FBI Director David Bowditch (if approved). Likely FBI Chief Legal Counsel Dana Boente, the former head of the DOJ-NSD, will also review. [*note* now we know why Boente was brought back inside in January ’18] Two more principals who could review would be FBI Asst. Director in charge of Counterintelligence Bill Priestap; and we must remember – FBI Agent Peter Strzok was not kicked out, he also remains inside.

Attorney Ristvan has also done a review of OIG process history to help understand the timing for the final report based on Current Draft Review status.  The basic process is set out in an OIG ‘blue book’ in 1993, itself required by section 515 of P. L. 106-554, the Inspector General Act.

Comment on draft review is the final step before official publication, but there isn’t much wiggle room so it is not a long process.  All interviews are attended by two OIG personnel. All important interviews are taped and/or transcribed then attested to by the interviewee in a sworn affidavit.  The average time for an OIG DoJ draft to receive comment and then go to final publication is about two weeks.  It has been this way since about 2005.

The most recent related IG report, on Andrew McCabe misconduct, was about 10 days from draft review to final publication.  This puts the time-frame for final report publication before the end of May.

♦ Secondly, the IG report does not include criminal referrals. The final IG report is a statement of facts. The IG report only provides the facts to decision-making leadership, who then decide what to do with those facts. However, if the IG discovers evidence of unlawful or illegal activity during the course of his/her investigation, the IG has a legal and ethical responsibility to tell the head of the DOJ immediately.

The IG cannot keep evidence of unlawful conduct hidden until the release of the report.

This is important because Attorney General Jeff Sessions appointed U.S. Attorney John Huber to join IG Horowitz toward the end of last year (2017).

The federal attorney (Huber)  then constructs a parallel investigation based on the evidence the IG has discovered.

However, as with all criminal investigations, Prosecutor John Huber would then fire-wall the IG from his own expanded criminal investigative inquiry.

It is critical to understand what happens when a U.S. Attorney joins with the OIG. The evidence flow only goes one-way. The IG is not participating in a criminal investigation. The IG is only looking at facts within his investigation and shares any pertinent investigative findings with the U.S. Attorney. The U.S. attorney does not provide the IG with findings from his criminal investigation.

IG Horowitz and U.S Attorney Huber might interview the same subjects. [In rare instances they might even interview the same subject simultaneously] However, Huber would not share his criminal investigative interview content/evidence with Horowitz. Therefore the content of a final IG report may contain outlines/evidence of criminal behavior, but there could be -likely is- much more evidence in addition to the IG report.

How the criminal prosecutions might proceed after the final IG report is released involves prosecutor strategy.

U.S. Attorney John Huber may wish to wait and see how the participants react to the facts outlined in the report; or he may use the IG report to expand his criminal investigation and conduct additional interviews of people who are outside government, and as a consequence outside of the IG investigative reach.

Huber may -likely does- already have this process, and a seated grand jury, well underway.

As a result this additional line of investigation was announced in March:

      • Strzok is about two years short of retirement requirements for a federal law enforcement enhanced retirement. There is a big axe hanging over his head that can cause him to lose his very good retirement in two years to a very reduced retirement that he can’t collect until he is likely in his sixties. That can influence his willingness to be a witness against Comey, McCabe and others involved.

        John Brennan’s ‘Exceptionally Sensitive’ Issue
        GEORGE NEUMAYR

        May 16, 2018, 12:05 am

        EXCERPT:
        Brennan dimly understood that there would be hell to pay if it came out that Hillary partisans in the U.S. government were spying on her opponent’s campaign, making use of opposition research that she had purchased. But Brennan, who was auditioning to be Hillary’s CIA director and choking on his anger at the thought of Trump as president, couldn’t help himself apparently. From April 2016 to July 2016, according to leaked stories in the British press, he assembled a multi-agency taskforce that served as the beginnings of a counterintelligence probe into the Trump campaign. During these months, he was “personally briefing” Obama on “Russian interference” — Brennan’s euphemism for spying on the Trump campaign — and was practically camped out at the White House. So in all likelihood Obama knew about and had given his blessing to Brennan’s dirt-digging.

        The FBI’s LIASON to Brennan was PETER STRZOK, whose hatred for Trump equaled Brennan’s. But even Strzok knew that Brennan was blowing smoke about Trump-Russian collusion. Strzok would later tell his mistress that he sensed the probe would prove a crock — that “there’s no big there there.”

        What’s valuable about the Corn/Isikoff account is that it inadvertently provides a picture of Brennan running an anti-Trump spying operation right out of Langley. Even after the FBI probe formally began in July 2016, Brennan was bringing CIA agents, FBI officials, and NSA officials into the same room at CIA headquarters to pool their anti-Trump hunches. To give these outrageous meetings a patina of respectability, Brennan invoked the post-9/11 rationale of interagency cooperation. Corn and Isikoff, obviously supportive of Brennan’s operation, use absurdly sanitized language to describe these meetings, but the shocking political import of them is still unmistakable:

          I really think that Obama’s daily intelligence briefing, which was shared with about 30 people, was the vehicle used to carry out an anti Trump conspiracy within the various agencies. These careerist bureaucrats, within the various intelligence agencies, were literally coordinating their anti-Trump activities using this means.An d conveniently with Obama’s approval.

      Louie made a persuasive case for why Mueller would be a great double agent. Believable to the Swamp but easily leveraged with the promise of a pardon. Plus he chose to enlist in the Marines during the Vietnam War which guaranteed he would see combat. That was an unheard of choice for someone of his social status. He was a Marine Lt. who apparently at one time was idealistic. Additionally he professes to be a life long Catholic. He’s in his 70s. Perhaps he believes in eternal life and a final judgment. In that case he may appreciate an offer of redemption. We know President Trump met with him twice after the Comey firing. We know the last meeting, a lengthy one, was the day before he became the SC. We know it was believed he was being interviewed to head the FBI but he was ineligible for that position. Pundits just assumed Trump was too dumb to know that andcwas wasting his time interviewing Mueller. Was Trump really dumb? Did he have other reasons for talking with Mueller? Were their meetings during the period of his interviews of potential FBI heads a convenient cover/smoke screen for what was really going on? So far Muellers investigation hasn’t harmed Trump at all in fact it’s been an enormous benefit on every possible way. It created a honey pot/containment site for plotters. It distracted the media so Sessions/Horowitz/Huber could work under the radar. It lulled the Swamp into a false sense of security. It allowed the public to organically shake off the Russia delusion and become aware of the coup and disgusting corruption that is so much worse than most imagined. It turned Trump from a traitor to an underdog hero. Now, just in time for elections, normally unmotivated voters are super energized to save their hero from the evil Mueller and the Democrats. Mueller has helped Trump so kuch its almost as if Trump planned it that way. As Q has said, “Great movies require great actors. Enjoy the show.” I would add the advise Jesus gave to “Not let your heart be troubled.” Worry makes us sick. Who benefits from sick patriots? Certainly not our President who fights so hard for us. MAGA with a happy heart. God bless.

    As a past employee of a federal agency, I’ve been on the other side of various IG reports. The purpose of the review is essentially an opportunity for agency rebuttal, which means the IG may have to re-examine certain report content and determine if a “fact” is actually a fact, or if a statement in the report is in error and must be adjusted. This process is usually smooth and in theory only takes an agency less than a week for review and comment. But I would imagine that this report and situation would be much more complicated than the normal audits. I would love to read this draft.

    This “review” sounds like a chance for the criminals to change the words of the indictment. Only federal bureaucrats have the golden opportunity to challenge an audit’s wording before it is published. A blistering audit in the private sector does not allow the miscreants to challenge the language before publication. If you screwed up, broke the law or committed fraud, the facts speak for themselves and you face the music in the real world.

    Yes, but YOU, the IC, produced the raw, bs reports, in collusion with the opp candidate; you PLANTED the evidence, in order to justify the investigation!

    Regarding all the talk today of Giuliani as THE Presidents lawyer yakking it up about how fortunate everybody is, now that Mueller is not going to indict Trump. Like he ever could.
    Does anyone else get the feeling that Giuliani is playing a role here? He hams it up while practically inviting the media to marvel at the incompetence on display by the Trump legal team. Meanwhile, there is this hotshot lawyer who previously worked for Bill Clinton and is an expert in “Impeachment Procedures” working for Trump also. No one has said dick about him since he’s been hired. He doesn’t appear to give any interviews so I’m guessing he’s been hired to work, instead of going on doofus talk shows. I can’t remember his name right now, and I’m thinking that might be a good thing.
    Maybe Giuliani is doing the yada yada thing as a distraction. Trump has to know what Mueller really is all about. I’m optimistic Trump is going to rally all Summer long to keep the House & Senate in Republican hands.
    Just in case Mr Sleepy Possum is really Mr Dead Skunk.

    I have no idea, but I do know for a fact that Hillary Clinton was once a Goldwater Girl, and her husband could not run as a Democrat today.

    Bill Clinton’s political platform from 1993 is considered to be “right wing,” by the modern day American left.

    I have to give Hillary and Bill credit..

    The Clinton’s are the political bulwark against the extreme left of Bernie and Obama.

    America is one election away from going full blown socialist.

    Even with the incredible success of President Trump in his first 16 months, the kids still don’t get it.

    Hillary and Bill can be used to fully expose the far left in America and keep the extreme left very far away from the White House.

    As much as I so want to see Hillary and Bill locked up, I know that they are more useful.

    Just as a ballpark number, how many people have to be arrested tried and jailed to vastly improve true justice in this country? I know the perpetual state, deep state, lifetime employees are a big problem, but the big names, the enablers, the enforces, the plotters, the non-government agitators (Sid Blumenthal types), could be eliminated, crippled, disposed of pretty quickly IMO. Doesn’t have to be all at once either. Give me…ohhhhh….50 a week nationally. I think it’s doable. If there was a will. Start at the top. I know this seems simplistic but I don’t care about the same names, the headline names, being repeated over and over and over again for decades as the problem, but are apparently super geniuses that can’t be touched. There’s only one answer to me. They are intentionally being left alone to be used as foils, fund-raising ammunition (I NEED YOUR DONATION TO STOP HILLARY!) or, it’s one big party and they’re all laughing at us rubes. All of the above? I say a few hundred people in jail and the collapse of the US takedown suffers a big defeat. We don’t have 8 years to do it in either. Too long.
