Senator Chuck Grassley Demands Page/Strzok Text Message Redactions Be Removed….

This is an interesting development.  Until now, for some mysterious reason, no-one in congress has ever asked for the redactions of the Peter Strzok and Lisa Page text messages to be removed.  Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley is the first politician to ask for all of the text messages without redactions.

In a letter today to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein (full pdf below), Chairman Grassley cites examples of unnecessary redactions that are in place simply to avoid the embarrassment upon the DOJ and FBI.  Accordingly this is not an acceptable reason for hiding information from congress and the American people.

Based on the details within the approximately 400 pages of text messages, there is a tremendous amount of evidence that points directly to the motives and intents of the DOJ and FBI group who were conducting the operation to exonerate Hillary Clinton; and the group who was working on the surveillance operation against the Trump campaign.

Here’s the full letter from Grassley:

.

The first batch of text messages, approximately 350 pages, were received by the Office of Inspector General on July 20th, 2017. Those initial messages were from Lisa Page (FBI special counsel to Andrew McCabe).  Those redacted messages were provided to congress in mid-December after the original Page-Strzok text messaging story broke on December 2nd, 2017.  [First Batch HERE] [More Here]

The second -smaller- batch of text messages, approx 50 pages, were recovered by the OIG sometime later.  The second batch filled in a missing timeline from December 2016 to May 2017, and are from the Peter Strzok side of the discussion.  [Second Batch Here]

It could be surmised with the IG report on the Clinton investigation completed, the redactions toward that Clinton aspect of the corrupt FBI and DOJ endeavor are only purposeful for protecting criminal evidence.

    The Sine Wave Scandal

    Many months ago this “scandal” began in earnest with the Strzok/Page texts and is being slowly revealed ever since. But it has not been a continuous upward path to the truth as Rosenstein continues to obstruct, the conflicted, ultra biased Mueller team still persecutes with impunity, the MSM concocts excuses or blames the victim after every revelation and on and on.

    It seems for every day it appears the lid is about to blown off the deep state scandal, one of their spokespeople present a lie that is used to dampen the investigation. Clapper’s recent “Trump should be grateful we had ‘spies’ in his campaign watching the Russians” etc. The Deep State have the vast majority of the media on their side no matter what laws they’ve broken or evils they’ve done.
    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it” as the Dems Russian hoax and Mueller’s hit team proves. The silliest of Tapper’s diversions and Clapper’s excuses will be soaked up by millions of gullible Americans, members of Congress will continue to beg or plead to pencil neck Rod for documents that they have a Constitutional right to see etc and the sine wave scandal continues. How long these up and down news cycles will continue is unknown–as is the final outcome.

      CNN’s audience, along with the rest of the old news media, has been shrinking since the last Election. They are entertainment networks now only watched by socialist progressive fellow travelers. They are preaching to the choir. The populace in general don’t believe them any more that the National Enquirer or The Onion.

      My, how things have changed.

        CNN’s ratings are down (if you don’t count every airport etc) but then Maddow’s and MSNBC ratings go up. If you add up all the cable viewers that watch FNC for political news and compare them to all those that watch the 98% negative Trump coverage from the major networks (including hit pieces like SNL and all the vicious Sunday political shows) FNC is a small minority. It also has DS Gatekeeper Wallace on Sunday and welcomes countless lefties on their shows to rant and trash Trump.

        I think the internet and social media (Twitter) have kept the playing field more level and sites like CTH are leading the way though I don’t know how many people they reach. As Keith said in his comment, CTH doesn’t get anywhere near the credit it deserves however.

            Seneca, so true. I have helped convince 80 percent of my dem friends to switch to Trump(notice I did not say establishment repub). They all voted for Trump. Except one. He makes mid six figures in an industry that is also very conservative, he voted for Reagan, yet I could not convince him to not vote for HIllary. Although as of late it seems as if his knees are buckling, he still spews some low info dem stuff which I refute in 2 seconds. He said that he agrees with Trump on the wall, but you can tell, he was really brainwashed because he argues against himself half of the time and still supports the Dems. I think that by 2020 he will vote for Trump. At least it’s a silver lining.

            I had a discussion with a liberal on FB. She stated that Obama Adm has NO scandals and the proof is that not one indictment against his Adm has been issued, whereas, there have been 19 indictments served on the Trump Adm, albeit that had nothing to do with Trump (Flynn, Manafort, Gates, Papadopolous) the others are the Russians that placed ads on FB. I reminded her that 29,000 sealed indictments are in the works but Trump has to clean out the FBI, DOJ, CIA and the fed and state courts before a fair and equal justice under the law can be done. She said that I need to stop defending Trump and pay attention to the news more!!!! I said “no thanks”, I am very much awake!!!

        That’s how far this media thing has fallen. The Usurper is out there signing 8 figure Netflix deals and this complicit, corrupt media has not approached him at all and asked him what he thinks of Clapper’s, Brennan’s, & Comey’s recent statements.

        The Usurper has his sycophants right where he wants them…bootlickers and commie leftists who cannot yield power for the cause of justice or face the facts that are the truth. The recent charade of Clapper’s statements that “we were just protecting Trump”, is pure bullshit….so why didn’t they place spies into the Hillary campaign to protect her?… How stupid do they think we are. In the end, they will all fall.

        They always get away with The Sgt. Shultz defense, “I know nothing”. Even if the White hats get a subpoena, the Commie Dems on these panels will ruin them. They’re all corrupt, both sides of the House, both sides of the Senate…..all money-grubbers who could give two shits about Law-abiding Americans…..Let’s stand up for Illegals, let’s defend terrorists and MS-13 agents, let’s just resist….it’s their only way to operate until they win back their power. Hopefully, in the end we will see Justice served before our Lion President leaves office.

        You are right about CNN of course but all the other anti Trump networks and cable MSNBC speak as one voice in that they all stick to the same lie or generated script. Each takes their turn uttering the lie first and then the rest join in whether it starts on CNN, MSNBC or in the NYT or WaPo.
        CNN’s viewers might be in decline but the network often leads the others with a new lie or ludicrous spin esp with Clapper as a contributor etc.

I suspect nothing, but there are some on here that thinks he will un-recuse, shut Mueller down, and fire RR. That would save the President alot of work. Once that is done, then Sessions should resign himself for his 1.5 years of inaction and being a huevón to boot.

        In the end, McCabe is going to be the John Dean in all of this. He will finger Lynch. Lynch will fall on her sword to protect Obama, who will be at best an unindicted co-conspirator. Lynch may very well take her chances with going to trial — as a “twofer” in DC, she might get a jury to let her off.

      Um, those that don’t die in the womb die later. Does this prove whole human dignity thing is futile? Answer no. 1: No, Jesus died too, death does not prove futility, see Resurrection. Answer no. 2: And as for the lives lent dignity by comparison with the humanity of Jesus, remember that John the Baptist and his mother Elizabeth recognized him in his mother’s womb as Savior when Mary turned up to help Elizabeth at the Visitation. Jesus was a few days’ gestation at the time, considering Mary set off for the hill country right after the Annunciation. Comparison to Jesus is the best argument for your own dignity that there is. There is not a better one. And this comparison extends back to gestational age 3 days approx. and in reason, no one can find a breakpoint after conception.

    Many have opined Carter Page was working with the FBI when he entered the Trump campaign in March of 2016 and that he was an informant for the FBI when the feds got a fisa warrant to surveil him back in time and forward in time, as well as all those Page contacted. This is entirely possible. If this in fact was the case then then it creates the very biggest roblem for the feds since this think started to unravel if the fisa court was not informed Carter Page, the subject of the fisa warrant request, was an FBI informant at the time of the FISA application. If Carter Page was an FBI informant at the time the FISA application was before the Court then this may be why doj is opposing release of the fisa warrant info so much, whether or not the disclosure about page as an fbi informant was made to the fisa court or not.

    SunDance, a question:
    When many of the Strzok / (Lisa) Page texts went missing, and IG Horowitz pulled them (and a rabbit) from a hat, and “put them out there,” Doesn’t that mean that IG Horowitz “owns” those records, and not Main Justice?

    Perhaps Grassley should be asking IG Horowitz, and ignoring the Rosestein / Wray wringer?

Trump had a meeting with Wray and Rosenstein. Coffee and cookies? It’s now less than 6 months until November.

    One other minor observation such as very small redactions such as the two highlighted in the Grassley letter, which is made obvious that he/his staff saw what had been redacted and filled in the blanks in the e-mails.

    If one has to redact something for a valid reason (e.g., to protect personal privacy, to protect an ongoing investigation), you don’t just redact the name. For example, in the sentence, “We’re investigating Joe Dokes for murdering Colonel Mustard in the Dining Room with a candlestick on the night of February 29, 2017,” you don’t take out only the name of the suspect “Joe Dokes.” Anyone with two brain cells to rub together can figure out from the other facts if they are possibly being investigated if they are a person who knows they were in the Dining Room that night. So a prudent FOIA person will redact the information that allows people to figure out what the investigation is about.

    From the two examples, one can infer that many of these small redactions serve one purpose – to avoid embarrassing an agency for stupid actions (buying a $70,000 conference table) or avoid an official (Liz) who made an embarrassing statement (the White House is running this).

    If there were a law enforcement concern, you wouldn’t want Liz to know that you were looking at that particular statement against interest.

    Just a random thought.

    LIZ… LIZ… LIZ… LIZ

    Sorry, but just wanted to catch everyone’s attention, since most people seem to have missed this. In footnote #2, it shows that the redacted name (regarding “the White House is running this”) is LIZ. I’d think that this could be very important, and that we should be wanting to know who this “Liz” is.

    Would the redactions, which hide embarrassing as opposed to national security concerns, cloak what might be of interest to a grand jury? Are grand juries enjoined from seeing materials deemed classified?

    The Globalist have lost the propaganda war.

    People may watch but they do not believe ESPECIALLY if they are Republicans!
    Three different polls over the last few years show Americans no longer believe the crap the Yellow Stream Media tries to feed them… Unless they are already diehard liberals.

    Only 6% of Americans trust the media
    Apr, 2016 “[….]A survey of more than 2,000 adults released on Sunday showed that trust in the media has dipped to dramatically low levels. About 52 percent of respondents said they have “some confidence” in the press, while 41 percent said they have “hardly any confidence.”

    Over the last two decades, research shows the public has grown increasingly skeptical of the news industry,” the report from the American Press Institute reads. “The study reaffirms that consumers do value broad concepts of trust like fairness, balance, accuracy, and completeness. At least two-thirds of Americans cite each of these four general principles as very important to them.” […]”

    And more recently:
    60% of Americans believe MSM reports fake news
    “[…]The Monmouth University poll, published Wednesday, found that Republicans (79 percent) were most likely to say that major news outlets transmit fake news stories, compared to 66 percent of Independents and 43 percent of Democrats.
    The survey found that even more people distrust online news websites, with a whopping 80 percent believing such outlets report fake news regularly or occasionally…

    The three groups of respondents were more equally aligned on the topic of whether online news outlets report fake news deliberately, with Republicans and Independents tied at 57 percent. Democrats weren’t far behind, at 52 percent.[…]”

    Poll: Majority says mainstream media publishes fake news
    “[…]Nearly two-thirds of Americans say the mainstream press is full of fake news, a sentiment that is held by a majority of voters across the ideological spectrum.

    According to data from the latest Harvard-Harris poll, which was provided exclusively to The Hill, 65 percent of voters believe there is a lot of fake news in the mainstream media.

    That number includes 80 percent of Republicans, 60 percent of independents and 53 percent of Democrats. Eighty-four percent of voters said it is hard to know what news to believe online.[…]”

We have become so used to an action movie kinda way of doing things and this is more like a chess game.

    Tell him “don’t you have work to do”
    We have emails that show otherwise.
    So they looked at WH emails that show someone is not working in Obama’s WH.
    Who showed up to the meeting? Was it a cabinet member? Was it Biden?
    He illicited the same response from that General interviewed from by the RS reporter. “Biden?! Bite Me!”
    Did the Hillary emails hidden include emails to Biden, Obama, or Ben Rhoades or Kerry and show they all knew she had an unprotected server?

    This last two weeks the Cabal have been leaking to their press on themselves and trying to set the spin for their crimes. Immunize the public. The story about Trump on a unprotected cell phone seemed so odd. Trump has been one of the most surveilled candidates and President of all time, do they really want to dredge up the connections? But what if they know its going to be included in the IG report that the FBI covered up evidence that Obama, Biden, Kerry, ADAG knew that Hillary had a bathroom server and they communicated with her, implicating themselves.

    For Grassley to zero in on this text exchange is chilling. Who is the WH guy at the meeting they all resent
