“SpyGate”, The Inspector General, and the Expanded FISA Investigation…

With much of the media, and indeed the President himself, fueling the ongoing headline discussion over the ramifications of the Obama administration setting up “surveillance”, “informants”, counterintelligence operations and “agent provocateurs” against their political opposition, ie. “SpyGate”, it is perhaps time for some mental sorbet.

Relating to the overall issue, on March 28th, 2018, the DOJ Office of Inspector General Michael Horowitz formerly announced an additional investigation of how the U.S. Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation engaged with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) in matters relating to the FISA Title-1 application filed against U.S. person Carter Page.  However, one part of the OIG notification was generously overlooked by a defensive and IC compliant media:

As part of this examination, the OIG also will review information that was known to the DOJ and the FBI at the time the applications were filed from or about an alleged FBI confidential source. Additionally, the OIG will review the DOJ’s and FBI’s relationship and communications with the alleged source as they relate to the FISC applications.  (pdf link)

Two months later on Monday May 21st, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein added a significant DOJ mandate to the Inspector General review.  Rosenstein expanded the original FISA review to include looking at whether officials within the intelligence community may have unlawfully used human intelligence assets to “spy” or “surveil” the Trump campaign:

“The Department has asked the Inspector General to expand the ongoing review of the FISA application process to include determining whether there was any impropriety or political motivation in how the FBI conducted its counterintelligence investigation of persons suspected of involvement with the Russian agents who interfered in the 2016 presidential election.” (link)

The overall FBI and DOJ corruption and political weaponization discussion has now shifted to issues of politically motivated spies, surveillance and the use of intelligence agents to conduct domestic operations.  There are obvious ramifications and seemingly and endless series of directions and outlines for evidence therein.

♦The first IG report, exposing the lies and media leaks from officials within the FBI, known as the IG Report on Andrew McCabe, was a derivative outcome from the original investigation into whether the FBI politicized their investigation of Hillary Clinton.  That report was published Friday April 13th, 2018.  {SEE HERE}

♦The second IG report, which is actually based on the original IG mandate, was completed on May 16th, 2018, and is being reviewed in draft report format prior to publication. It is widely anticipated that report will be made final and public in the first week of June.

♦The third IG report, again an outcropping from the original IG mandate, is the FISA review and use of the FISA Court (FISC) by the DOJ and FBI in their counterintelligence investigation of candidate Donald Trump.  As noted, this third investigation has now been expanded to include inquiry into how the larger intelligence apparatus might have been weaponized for political purposes; spies, surveillance, international agents, and such.

Here’s where a mental sorbet is in order.

While we await the IG report on the politicization of the DOJ and FBI and how they handled the Clinton Classified-Email Investigation, it is worth noting that much of the FISA investigation overlaps with the FBI intent during this timeline.

There’s obviously a boatload of investigative angles and questions that can possibly swirl around the FISC and IC (intelligence community) investigation. Heck, when any investigation is launched into the intelligence community, this is where you enter the land of the proverbial rabbit hole(s).

Having traveled through this IC matrix before, and with a firm grip on the seemingly slippery pathways therein, CTH has no desire to chase ourselves through the hall of mirrors.  We can, and perhaps at times will, go granular.  However, for current purposes what we would draw attention to are the ‘larger aspects’ being seemingly overlooked.

Obviously the FISA/IC investigation is going to go into the locations of the CIA, ODNI, NSA and their intersection with the Department of Justice National Security Division, DOJ-NSD.  The DOJ-NSD is the division within Main Justice that handles domestic intelligence operations from the position of legal intent and court engagement.

On these domestic counterintelligence issues, DOJ-NSD gives the instructions and authorization from Main Justice to the FBI counterintelligence officials; who then do the actual investigatory police work.   In the 2016 “small group” operation against the Trump campaign the DOJ-NSD officials worked in unity with FBI officials. In rooting out corruption therein, both the FBI side and the Main Justice side have issues.

On the FBI side Director Comey, Asst. Director McCabe, as well as a host of downstream officials were caught in the investigative net.  Some were fired (Comey, McCabe); some demoted (Baker, Strzok); some quit (Rybicki, Kortan, Baker); and one -Peter Strzok- remains; likely cooperating with Phase III of the IG FISA/IC investigation.  The head of the FBI Counterintelligence Operation, Bill Priestap, has never been touched.

In essence, the corrupt officials within the FBI side have been purged.

On the Main Justice side things are slightly more complex because there’s much bigger stakes at play and legal risks that extend far beyond the DOJ-NSD.  While a host of DOJ-NSD officials have been removed or quit (John Carlin, Mary McCord, David Laufman) many more remain.  Trish Beth “Trish” Anderson, Tashina “Tash” Gauhar, George Toscas to name a few.  Then there’s Bruce Ohr, demoted twice and remaining likely for cooperation.  In addition, the entire apparatus of the Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) appears to have been involved in creating plausible legal justification.

In essence, many of the corrupt officials within Main Justice HAVE NOT been purged.

Almost every current media leak is from inside the remaining Main Justice and DOJ-NSD officials who remain in place protecting the interests of the former corrupt officials.  All are lawyers, and all have alignment with their external allies in the Lawfare Blog Group.

The Obama Main Justice officials remaining inside the permanent political state are the types Shakespeare was referring to in Henry-VI. Says Dick the Butcher: “the first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers“.  Despite his socialist tendencies and moral failings we can all relate to Dick the Butcher.  So that’s challenge number one.

Challenge number two is how to bring national security intelligence information into investigative review while simultaneously avoiding the exhaustive defense systems of the Deep State.

The terms “classified” and “top secret” have been so abused by the administrative state as a deployment mechanism to hide their $5000 latte machines and $70,000 conference tables, when the IG actually begins digging into FBI, CIA, NSA, FISC, and DOJ-NSD network communication we can only imagine the non-disclosure schemes.

Then again, perhaps, just perhaps, such specific subject-matter-expertise is the entire reason why AG Sessions selected John Huber from Utah (NSA HQ), and more recently brought in Ezra Cohen-Watnick as National Security Advisor to Attorney General Jeff Sessions.  (NOTICE THE TIMING)

        They most likely have government credit cards, even employees that rarely travel have them. Their expenses would be detailed on their credit card statement.

        As to travel orders, at that level I would imagine they approve their own travel. Maybe Comey had to sign off?? I’m not sure. Their airline ticket would be purchased via CC or perhaps they took an FBI plane?? There would be a set amount for each day based on the city. That per diem amount would be to cover hotel, meals, taxi, incidentals like dry cleaning. If they required security then that is a separate pot, I think via the state department and a car would be provided. I’m going to guess they were provided a car and driver.

        I have no earthly idea what the per diem rate is overseas, but I’m sure it can be located, it is public information. In fact I would imagine just about all the travel information is available via FOIA. Although, they’d probably claim some national security reason to withhold it 🙄

        Susan Rice relied upon that memo when she went on all the Sunday talk shows and lied her ass off, claiming that the attacks were not acts of terrorism but were instead motivated by anger over an allegedly anti-Muslim video.

              It is practically impossible to imagine the Salzburg Festival without its “Jedermann”. Hofmannsthal’s “play about the death of a rich man” has never failed to captivate audiences – especially when performed in the perfect setting right outside Salzburg Cathedral.

              The history behind the writing of “Jedermann”

              Hugo von Hofmannsthal’s “Jedermann” is based on the tradition of medieval mystery plays, especially that of “Everyman”, an English mystery play dating back to the 16th century. The stage play “Jedermann” was first performed on 1 December 1911 at Berlin’s Schuhmann Circus, under the direction of Max Reinhardt. It was also he who produced its premiere at the Salzburg Festival on 22 August 1920 – marking the birth of the Festival itself. Except for a few years’ hiatus, “Jedermann” has been performed annually at the Salzburg Festival ever since – the undisputed highlight of Festival season.

              The Plot of “Jedermann”

              Hofmannsthal’s morality play tells a virtually universal story: God sends Death in order to summon the rich bon vivant Jedermann. In his hour of greatest need, he is abandoned by his friends, his money and his lover. Only after he has repented for his transgressions and committed himself to Christianity, may he stand armed with his faith and his good deeds before the divine judgment seat.

      Agreed, except I’d say that upon hearing her testimony there should have been an immediate agency investigation, it shouldn’t require a SC. If the agency didn’t do that (and apparently it didn’t), it shows Obama people are still running the state department, regardless of who Trump has put in charge. I’m still amazed how the bureaucrats are allowed to do what they please. This won’t be a popular opinion, but IMHO, this shows Tillerson was not loyal to PDJT nor MAGA.

            Sundance has a post about how this fits in with the splitter scheme. Remember, it was the practice of providing so many candidates that their candidate would win with a small fraction of the total vote. (Democrats had the rig the primary and buy out the losing candidate scheme). Between the two schemes, they were going to guarantee our choice was between Crooked Hillary and Low Energy Jeb.

            Remember that even the outsiders like Cruz served their role as splitters. Each had billionaires willing to spot them a go. And frankly, most of them took their turn trying to be the one who stops Trump. Some may have turned to Cruz with the taste of depressed vomit in their mouths, but they put significant effort into backing Cruz as the next to last effort to stop Trump.

            Indeed, we have seen significant Congressional investigations play out as nothing but rabble rousing to anger the base, but absolutely no consequences for Obama’s many scandals. That is emptier than Cruz’s showboating real filibuster. A filibuster that stopped the presses, but not the legislation.

            Most of our ‘independent’ heroes have been fakes, quietly going along and making sure the leaders goals are achieved, even while leading us in revolt to those goals.

            Indeed, the candidates that aren’t bought and paid for are opposed by the likes of Rove and McConnell.

            Surely schemers that provide us with the two sided uniparty, ‘heads they win tails we lose’ will also provide for the many different facets within those two parties.

          The thing is, Sessions gave up his Senate seat, one he’d probably have the rest of his life, for the AG job. There is no way he could have and no way he can in the future predict if POTUS will fire him should Sessions rile the Lion. His dream job of AG would be gone and there would be no Senate seat waiting for him.
          I think Sessions is working madly behind the scenes, following a plan. I agree that he was naive and got played into that recusal. I hope he is smoldering mad about that, at the Dems and at himself. I believe he’s trying to make up for that mistake with all he’s got.

          I also believe there is NO reason his recusal into accusations of campaign collusion with Russia should extend to running investigations into Fisa abuse. So, I suspect he saw the unbelievably strong headwinds in the form of Obama/Holder DOJ sycophants and apparatchiks that would make a thorough and fair investigation by the regular DOJ under his leadership impossible. Thus, Huber.

          I can’t help but wonder if there are back channel communications with Trump. After all, it would be legal and appropriate. He’s POTUS’ attorney general but they’d not want the Dems to be able to make up crap about it.

            His recusal allows him to function on all cylinders for every other legal matter facing the DOJ. He will be able to come forth when necessary. Neither did he recuse from the handling of Clinton’s emails which is separate from candidate Trump, election 2016 and “Russia.”

            Despite the recusal, where we’ve fretted, I bet that Senator Sessions had some long discussions with Candidate (then Elect) Trump before and after the election. IOW, everything Donald Trump knew prior to the election likely was shared with the future AG. The more one thinks about it, the more this entire thing makes sense.

            T1 Howard, your comment is good, but don’t worry about the recusal. Legal beagles have weighed in, and it was better that he recuse – no conflict of interest to be the Left’s battle cry – IMO, they’re going to be unpleasantly surprised by what is accomplished.

        Sessions stated in one of his press conferences that he has everything coming into his office going through a secretary.. anything dealing with Russia, the campaign, or HRC is redirected to the proper department or round filed.. he refuses to even look at it because it may imply bias in other matters.
        If he were to step in 2/3 of DC and 95% of the media would scream he’s Trumps puppet and interfering with the investigation..

      Okay Chickficshun, prove you yourself have a ‘brain in your head’ and answer something … Can you define what a Conflict of Interest is? Ever heard of it? It’s a thing. If so, please define it. And better yet, is there anytime an Attorney General should recuse himself for a conflict of interest?

      While we’re on the subject, President Trump and his surrogates are correctly pointing out conflicts of interest with Comey, McCabe, Rosenstein, and Mueller. All are extremely valid points though some go back many years ( though none approach Sessions conflict of investigating his Trump campaign co-members, Trump, and Sessions himself ). So what to make of this? Is Trump screwing up here by pointing these conflicts out and should just ignore them and let them go?

      The FISA judge Contreras has recused from the Flynn case probably for very good reason ( likely a signature on a warrant ). Should he unrecuse and continue on?

      When a Trump case reaches the Supreme Court, what are you gonna do then. Will you join us and demand Ginsburg recuse herself ( for her nasty comments about Candidate Trump since 2015 ) or will you side with her and demand she NOT recuse?

      Man, the mental gymnastics y’all are performing are marvelous. But you’re nailing yourselves into an escape-proof box. Well, unless you are willing to be inconsistent and ignore conflicts of interest when convenient. That is called corruption. Why not stop the madness of pushing fake facts about “BS recusals” and just admit you WANT a corrupt Attorney General. At least that much would be honest ( though the goal is still corrupt ).

          spren You seem to be making one of Blades points by asserting Sessions should have been unethical because Democrat AGs were unethical. I agree with Blade and applaud AG Sessions for his decision to recuse himself. His decision and the Lefts insistence on no conflict of interests, no matter how petty, is REALLY going to bite them. Anyone following Trumps tweets realizes the trap that was set by the recusal and realizes that the Rats were caught, as expected, and are starting to be revealed. Thank God President Trump and his team of brilliant patriots, including AG Sessions, don’t navigate by the uninformed screeching from arm chair “know it alls”.

          When I said y’all, I am addressing to the anti-Sessions jihadists. Who else would I be addressing? It should be pretty clear by now.

          You wrote apparently conflicts of interest only apply when a Republican is involved, well duh. Are you playing dumb or just don’t know there is a double standard, really a triple standard since Trump is an outsider and both halves of the uniparty hate him. Have you met the enemedia? Have you met the 99% of civil servants who are uniparty and not Trump outsiders? What planet do you think you are living on.

          Did you call for Holder to recuse himself in Fast and Furious?You don’t do apples vs apples do you? Sessions’ conflict dwarfs Holder *because* Obama was not involved at all, Holder wasn’t a subject of the investigation, Holder wasn’t on Obama campaign, and Holder wasn’t investigating co-members of Obama campaign he wasn’t even a member of. The reason it did not get investigated properly ( and I don’t mean the Congress putzes ) is that Holder kneecapped the OIG just like all the Obama cabinet did ( Pentagon, Treasury etc ). And that is precisely where Sessions has set things right by releasing DoD OIG to do its job. If you had been paying attention to the articles on the very site you are commenting on you might know this.

          I can tell from your comment you wish to pretend the world is fair, and there are no double standards, and that they really don’t hate Trump down in the District of Criminals and in the Enemedia, and that Trump and Sessions need not be careful and play by the rules of ethics and law and the Constitution. And in this fictitious world all Sessions had to do was come in and be a crook like Holder, squash the investigations and there would be rainbows and unicorns as far as the eye could see.

          Not recusing from crystal clear textbook conflicts of interest is corruption. And that means those who are demanding this from Sessions are willing to accept corruption or are simply themselves corrupt. And then y’all are further projecting your willingness to accept corruption on Trump by believing he is with you on this ( he ain’t ). Just stop the madness and admit it. Say you want a corrupt attorney general! You sure as hell don’t want an honest one since you melt down as soon as he proves it.

        Exactly. What is the point in fighting corruption with methods or processes that are corrupt or can even be perceived to be corrupt? Sessions did exactly the right thing by recusing himself, both in a judicial sense and strategic sense.

        The issue of his recusal is a distraction and irrelevant to any investigation taking place. What’s more, his non-recusal would have given fuel for endless cries of “what-about-iism” from the Dementocrats.

        Why such a fact and simple point of logic is beyond his critics will never cease to mystify me.

            Who says he has? Remember The DOJ is NOT SUPPOSED TO BLAB about ongoing investigations. AG Sessions has said that to Congress on several occasions.

            Larry Schweikart Posts

            But in case you lost track there are FIVE investigations of Ds going on plus the sex fund scandal:

            1 – The first, in no particular order: Sessions announced that he was reopening the Cankles e-mail investigation, and that it in fact has been going on “for months.”

            2 – 1/12/2018 the DOJ unsealed the indictment of the U1 guy, but his partner had been CONVICTED some time ago, meaning this investigation has been going on “for months” 

            3- Sessions announced he was opening an investigation of Hezbollah/Iran.

            4 – Mulehead–The fact is, except for two minor “process” indictments, he hasn’t done anything even remotely pointing toward Trump. But . . .
            note that the two “process” indictments Manafort and Flynn’s plea deal, are both so incredibly tainted by “sloppy” processes themselves that both should easily walk or have plea & charges thrown out. Gee, maybe that was on purpose?

            5 – the Awans are closely tied to the emails, FUSION GPS, and likely even the U1 deal, then it stands to reason Sessions is on it.

            So this means that ALL of these are tied together, ALL are being investigated (as I’m betting the IG report shows)
            But Wait, There’s More –
            The “sex fund,” according to reports, listed 145 payouts from 2007 to 2017. Allow for some normal turnover in House seats, say, 15 gone . .. . that would mean there are about 130 “sex fund” cases who have not been named yet.

            So far, about 24 Rs and 7 D members have resigned early (Chaffetz) or announced they won’t run in 2018 (Issa, for example).

            That means there are about 100 (!!) other Congressmen AND WOMEN who are named in the sex fund who are/or can be blackmailed. Given the proportion of Rs to Ds who’ve left, I think our final number is 70Ds and 30 Rs yet to come out. There will be WOMEN named in this.

            • Who do you suppose has seen these records? Who has had access to the internal servers? Ah, you guessed it: the Awans….

            ⚖️ 24,544 new sealed indictments entered from 10/30/17 thru 3/31/18
            March.

            ⚖️ 29,000 sealed criminal cases in federal courts as of April 30th

            Also Sessions has been getting U.S. attorneys in place to prosecute those cases.
            Washington Compost: “Attorney General Jeff Sessions is naming 17 interim U.S. attorneys to run federal prosecutor shops across the country, including the premier office in Manhattan. Geoffrey S. Berman, a law partner of Rudolph W. Giuliani at the firm Greenberg Traurig and a former federal prosecutor, was named…”
            …..

            Now let’s talk about WHAT those sealed indictments could be about.

            MS13,– Drugs and Human Trafficking and that ties into OBAMA! The secret backstory of how Obama let Hezbollah off the hook Hezbollah has made major inroads in Mexico and south BTW AND is connected to the drug trade.

            Removing MS13 removes $$$ and also the people willing to murder for $$$.

            Think false flag setups like Los Vegas — … Compos was not a registered NV security guard. He was a recent hire and ADDED by MGM CEO Jim Murren on June 30th. Compos ran to Mexico to have the bullet removed AND the only one who can place a live Paddock in that room @ or about the time of the shooting. Compos and the Maintenance Man are the ones who give us a LOCKED staircase up to Saudi Land BEFORE the shooting ended…. Well, Maybe, sort of….

    I think that both our President and AG Sessions know…that if they rounded up all the wrong-doers in the DOJ/FBI, at the same time, then what would happen next, is a Tsunami of Cases filed by the attorneys of those convicted by the Obama-DOJ.

    This is probably an eventuality.
    But if it happened all at once…right now…it would clog up our courts, which are still heavily populated with Leftist Judges.

    In re-reading Sessions letter to Grassley/Goodlatte/Gowdy, I think this is what Sessions was trying to telegraph to the three G’s…with statements like this:
    “It is important that Congress and the American people have confidence in the Department of Justice.”

    While it is excruciating to wait for justice to be applied to all these conspirators & their bosses who so richly deserve it…I can understand the need for meticulous attention to detail in building the cases against these traitorous scum.

    The public is gradually beginning to see what was going on during the O-regime.
    This is an important byproduct of the seemingly glacial pace of bringing these culprits to justice.

    I have the utmost faith in our President’s love of law and order…and his sense of justice.
    My gut sense is that he has faith in his Atty General.
    So I will continue to be patient.

      We are focused on this coup attempt for many reasons, but we shouldn’t think this is a one off. Nobody believes Learner had a good idea one day and decided to oppress political opposition on her own. Justice Roberts didn’t decide to make an ass of himself without a good explanation (opinion) in his obamacare Supreme Court decision. After mopping the floor with obama during the first 2012 debate why did Romney fold and walk around with his tail between his legs?

      The previous admin was all about “by any means necessary,” they were Alinsky fanatics. The media and deep state apparatchiks provided top cover, no worries. IF this WH can get to the high ground and send a few to jail MAYBE we’ll find this weaponization of the fed bureaucracy has been SOP for these Lefty scheisse heads. Then maybe the country will finally begin to see what the Left is really about. Maybe socialism and communism will once again be understood for what it is. Are you listening millennials?

        I’m insulted how anti-Sessions jihadists continually attack my President and fellow NYC’er by accusing him of variously being corrupt, timid, incompetent, lazy, inattentive, disconnected, unplugged and apparently stupid when I know full well he is none of those things from watching him for like 50 years now.

        January 10, 2017 … Senator Sessions first mention of recusal
        February 9, 2017 … Sworn in as Attorney General
        March 2, 2017 … Recused from campaign issues

        That’s 30 days for President-Elect and President Trump to pull his nomination before he even got sworn in had he wanted to. And then another 3 weeks after swearing in but before he actually recused. Nearly two full months elapse from the moment Sessions first said he would consider recusing for conflicts of interest in front of Congress until he did and everyone wants to believe Trump was surprised? ( BTW, did he really even need to mention it to Congress? Isn’t it implied when we take the oath that we will follow the law and all regulations? Answer = of course ).

        But here we are again, with folks twisting themselves into pretzels pretending our President is somehow so unplugged from the huge national event of Sessions’ confirmation hearings that he missed them on every channel live and didn’t even watch all the commentary TV shows about them? And he somehow didn’t speak with Sessions through this entire time even in cabinet meetings? The White House and staff including Bannon, Flynn, Pence, Priebus, Miller also all were unplugged? What, the White House was under some kind of news blackout? Puhlease.

        Seriously folks. Trump was NOT surprised because that would be frickin impossible for someone who is that tuned with the media and also his team members. The tweets that say or imply this are not meant for you. They are stating one simple thing for the general public, the Enemedia, and the investigators: Sessions and I did not discuss his recusal, I did not pressure him to NOT recuse or affect the already ongoing investigations, Sessions is rogue, I am not influencing investigations about me and my team at DoJ. If you can simply accept the fact Trump misses nothing, especially his AG nominee on TV being grilled by Kamala Harris, Corey Booker and Al Franken, then those tweets are obviously NOT what they appear to be! Stop gaslighting yourselves.

          But having Horowitz investigating and peeling the layers of corruption back very slowly leading up to HRC and/or Obama I think would have a much less chance of throwing the country into total meltdown.

A total of 1,037 fires. 550 police officers were injured and 4,500 looters were arrested. A congressional study estimated that the cost of damages amounted to a little over $300 million (equivalent to $1.2 billion in 2017).

              In the Las Vegas Shooting the total number of deaths was 58 There were 422 people shot with a total of Non-fatal injuries = 851.

            Examine that and just think about it! For that quote to be literally true then Trump is saying he himself ( Trump ) is corrupt. ( because he would have appointed someone who would ignore a clear conflict of interest ). Therefore it cannot be true – unless you believe Trump is corrupt.

            And the other tweet was Trump saying Sessions did not speak to him about the recusal beforehand. Well duh. Ask yourself if there is any possible discussion the two of them could have about Sessions recusing or not that does not rise to tampering or obstruction since the entire subject is Sessions and Trump and the rest of the team being investigated by the Justice Department, particularly the FBI.

            So if you choose to believe Trump wanted to speak with Sessions about the possibility of recusing and would want to try to talk him out of it ( that means stay on and investigate Trump, his team and himself ) then you must consider the likelihood that Sessions saved Trump from himself and prevented a situation where Trump would try to influence the investigation. You’re welcome. I guarantee you one thing. If Trump had ever suggested such a thing to Sessions ( ignore a future conflict of interest ) back in November then Sessions would have declined the job. If he did this after becoming Attorney General he would have at the minimum refused or resigned, and I believe the law states that he would be obligated to report it as a crime. Now that is real ugly.

            So I repeat. Taking these two tweets as literal whining and complaining by Trump is a pretty dumb thing to do and really leaves you nowhere to go except that Trump himself is corrupt and wildly reckless enough to announce it to the world. That’s not the Trump I know of for many decades.

                March 2, 2017 … Recused from campaign issues

                Do you understand the sequence of events? There was no special counsel talk in November when he accepted the nomination. There wasn’t any even in January! It wasn’t until almost two months past that when the pressure reached critical mass and then it was Rosenstein, who was “resigned” by Sessions, but kept by Trump who then appointed Mueller and moved the DoJ investigations over to him.

                Will Jeff Sessions recuse himself from Russia probe? [CSMonitor] February 27, 2017 —It’s too early to tell whether Attorney General Jeff Sessions should recuse himself from Justice Department investigations into allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, the White House said on Sunday amid mounting pressure from Democrats.

                Read this from Schmuck Schumer: “Those prosecutors should not be reporting to the first senator who endorsed Donald Trump’s campaign, who served on the same campaign committee as Michael Flynn, and who nominated Donald Trump at the Republican convention,” Democratic majority leader Chuck Schumer said at a press conference last week. “The Justice Department’s own guidelines demand that Attorney General Sessions remove himself from this matter immediately.”

                Everybody and their Uncle knew he would recuse, and IMHO the actual trap here hinged on Sessions NOT recusing so that Watergate 2.0 could begin. Had he not recused we would have been treated for months of Sessions must recuse or resign and Sessions colluding to protect Trump and John Mitchell and Nixon once again. Once he recused I believe the enemy went off the rails because it meant they would have to face Sessions now rather than get rid of him. It also meant the enemy was stuck with the Russia hoax and its inevitable fizzle. They went crazy because ultimately Sessions as AG means a straightshooter will be taking a real close look at their sedition. And since muh Russia is a hoax, it made perfect sense to stay out of it. If you want to scapegoat someone, then pick on Rosenstein. It is not Sessions fault because recusal always had to happen.

                  But what I DO have an issue with depends on what Trump and Sessions foresaw when they discussed the Attorney General position. Was there a concern at that time that something major would come up later that WOULD cause Sessions to have to recuse? Did Sessions bluntly tell Trump that there could very well come a point where he would have to recuse, and if so, was Trump okay with that?

                  If so — if Trump and Sessions were on the same wavelength regarding possible recusal — then it’s all good. If, on the other hand, Sessions did NOT make things clear to Trump in advance… well then, I very much DO blame Sessions.

    Trey Gowdy & company are lining up the perps that will be outed by the IG report to testify in front of Congress. I believe that will be the extent of it. They’ll be publicly denounced, promises made by their replacements to improve, and the beat will go on. Jeff Sessions will magically appear and tell us how he intends to clean up the DOJ. Wray will do the same for the FBI.

    Sundance –

    The strategy of slow playing all this in order for the conservative media and the people to absorb the magnitude of all this seems to be working. Note Sharyl Attkisson’s latest piece on The Hill:

    8 SIGNS POINTING TO A COUNTERINTELLIGENCE OP DEPLOYED AGAINST TRUMP

    http://thehill.com/opinion/white-house/388978-growing-signs-of-a-counterintelligence-operation-deployed-against-trumps

    In this piece, she ID’s 8 individual pieces of info….each a piece of the overall puzzle and individially discovered (or made known) over the past 6 months or so. They are (not listed in order of revelation):

    QUOTE: “Here are eight signs pointing to a counterintelligence operation deployed against Trump for political reasons.”

    1. Code Name “Crossfire Hurricane”
    – The operation reportedly had at least one code name that was leaked to The New York Times: “Crossfire Hurricane.”

    2. Wiretaps
    – Secret surveillance was conducted on no fewer than seven Trump associates

    3. National Security Letters
    – Another controversial tool reportedly used by the FBI to obtain phone records and other documents in the investigation were national security letters, which bypass judicial approval.

    4. “Unmasking”
    — identifying protected names of Americans captured by government surveillance — was frequently deployed by at least four top Obama officials who have subsequently spoken out against President Trump: James Clapper, former Director of National Intelligence; Samantha Power, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations; Susan Rice, former national security adviser; Sally Yates, former deputy attorney general.

    5. Changing the rules
    – On Dec. 15, 2016 — the same day the government listened in on Trump officials at Trump Tower — Rice reportedly unmasked the names of Bannon, Kushner and Flynn. And Clapper made a new rule allowing the National Security Agency to widely disseminate surveillance material within the government without the normal privacy protections.

    6. Media Strategy
    – Former CIA Director John Brennan and Clapper, two of the most integral intel officials in this ongoing controversy, have joined national news organizations where they have regular opportunities to shape the news narrative — including on the very issues under investigation.

    7. Leaks
    – There’s been a steady and apparently orchestrated campaign of leaks — some true, some false, but nearly all of them damaging to President Trump’s interests.

    8. Friends, informants and snoops
    – The FBI reportedly used one-time CIA operative Stefan Halper in 2016 as an informant to spy on Trump officials. Another player is Comey friend Daniel Richman, a Columbia University law professor, who leaked Comey’s memos against Trump to The New York Times after Comey was fired. We later learned that Richman actually worked for the FBI under a status called “Special Government Employee.” The FBI also used former reporter Glenn Simpson, his political opposition research firm Fusion GPS, and ex-British spy Christopher Steele to compile allegations against Trump, largely from Russian sources, which were distributed to the press and used as part of wiretap applications.

    As Attkisson points out:

    “These eight features of a counterintelligence operation are only the pieces we know (so far).”

    My point is this….

    As you correctly pointed out long ago, there is simply no way the public could absorb all this in one sudden reveal. Given the sheer complexity and depth of the scheme, it HAD to come out in bits and pieces in order for us to get our minds wrapped around the whole picture.

    And now, enough time has passed that Attkisson can write a piece like this without everyone left scratching their heads with hundreds of unanswered questions. So, this is a very good reason…in addition to the need for time to conduct investigations…that AG Sessions has not acted on what we here at CTH have known for months (thanks to you), but that the rest of the public is only now putting all together.

    This piece by Attkisson is proof you are “on speed and glideslope”, as we pilots say when landing in near zero visibility conditions.

      What did Barack Obama know and when did he know it?

      Those Watergate-era questions are increasingly relevant today in the rapidly expanding government-media debacle once intended solely to ensnare Donald Trump.

      With revelations already reaching into the Obama White House…..Charles Hurt of The Washington Times connected the latest dots: “The Obama administration perverted one of the most powerful, clandestine spying operations in the world and used it to spy on political opponents, punish them and, ultimately, silence them through extortion.”

      Those charges were dismissed by former Democratic officeholders (and current media commentators) such as former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and CIA Director John Brennan.

      But just like Watergate, glib defenses were swiftly eclipsed by more troubling revelations.

      ——————————

      Accuse Obama of mounting a spy operation against Trump a year ago would’ve been great folly.

      Today, it makes increasing sense to the nation, and the MSM cannot ignore it, it can only try to “spin” the ever-increasing revelations.

      This is called “narrative momentum”, and Trump’s narrative is building up a great deal of it. So much so that even dems are beginning to openly question things in publications like the Hill. Here’s an example:

      —————————
      I’M A DEM, AND THE LEFT’S GASLIGHTING OF RUSSIA SCARES ME MORE THAN TRUMP

      QUOTE:

      “I sense a bigger problem on the Democratic side, both among ordinary Democrats and prominent left-leaning pundits. In the Trump era, many seem unable to grasp irony and facts as it applies to their own side. For instance, when they talk about Trump violating the rule of law or obstructing justice, don’t they realize that some of us are thinking: Yes, but where were you when the FBI didn’t apply the rule of law to Hillary Clinton, and why didn’t you object when Hillary obstructed justice by deleting emails under subpoena? Shouldn’t the rule of law apply to everyone?

      Everything that happened in 2016 and 2017 needs to come out in the open: the botched FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server, the surveillance of Trump’s campaign, the shady origins of the Russia investigation. There needs to be a reckoning.

      There needs to be a reckoning for the mainstream media as well, as to why, as one critic said this week, they’ve acted as “lapdogs for the Deep State and propaganda arm of the Left.” Maybe I’m not a good enough Democrat, but I’m far more troubled by what is happening to Trump than by Trump himself.”

      Again, slow rolling all this complex information was the ONLY way to build up Trump’s narrative momentum such that even democrats are now openly calling for “everything that happened in 2016 and 2017 to come out in the open.”

      The MSM simply cannot compete with that and retain what shreds of credibility it may yet have in the minds of the author above (which seems spent). And without their media enablers, the coupists are as good as finished.

          1) Two weels ago Sundance put together the pieces and just went ahead and called out Stefan Halper.

          2) I dont know about you guys, but i was severely criticized and called all kinds of names when I shared the curious timeline of Halper in the context of him being the origination source. Flame thrower type stuff. it was ugly.

          3) Within days, the media informed my friends that what happened was normal investigation stuff, which they parroted.

          Q: When was the last time big-media did rapid-response reporting to some blogger conspiracy websites? They never do that.

        I think that’s potentially the greatest danger to the whole notion of slow rolling the information and creating “narrative momentum”. So many falsehood(s) and deflection and deflations (Clapper saying “oh yeah, spying is good, no big deal, etc..”) are also conditioning the public while the ‘truth’ momentum supposedly unfolds and builds. Regardless of efforts from both sides, 80-90% of the population really doesn’t care. Only indictments and televised perp walks and trials and convictions (of high level players like Comey, Brennan, Clapper, Rice, Lynch, Hillary, or Obama) – will get more than a bored ‘hrumph’ from anyone that is not “into” politics.

      Here is the POST DEFACTO JUSTICATION for the Trump Tower surveillance referred to in your NUMBER FIVE (Dec 2016) ….. (to keep President Elect safe —-of course)

      By Jaclyn Reiss GLOBE STAFF DECEMBER 27, 2016

      People were rushed out of Trump Tower in New York City on Tuesday afternoon as police investigated a suspicious package, which turned out to be a bag of children’s toys. The backpack was found near the entrance to a Nike Town store in the building, according to the Associated Press.

      NYPD Sergeant Jessica McRorie told the Globe at 5 p.m. that the bag, which was examined by a bomb squad, was deemed safe. An e-mail from a WPIX TV news desk worker sent to the White House transition pool list reported that numerous police and fire crews were responding to Trump Tower after the bag was discovered.

    Mental sorbet indeed. And the birds-eye view is good…

    Regardless of the “exactly who did what to whom and when,” the bottom line is that the Obama administration ran a huge spy ring against the candidates opposing Clinton. Intelligence collection was weaponized in a way that is reminiscent of Soviet Russia….and by that I mean used internally rather than outside the country. Coincidence? Probably not….Russia has excelled at this type of an operation since Stalin, and Brennan is an admitted acolyte. Nellie Ohr is another Russophile. I am sure there are more who studied Soviet tactics and chose to apply them here.

    If this isn’t stopped now, and stopped hard, we will turn into another USSR. A surveillance state ala “turn your neighbor and your parents in” type of government failed there, it failed in East Germany under the Stazis, it failed in China under Mao, and we have to make it fail here.

      • wolfmoon- agree with you, but would go even further. The FBI, CIA, NSA, and all the other alphabet soup of agencies are NOT protecting the American people.

        Instead, thanks to POTUS DJT, we have found out that every single one of our phone calls, texts, emails and communications are being monitored by The Government and this information has been used to set up what is by definition, a Police State.

        I would say that these agencies need to be disbanded with extreme prejudice. There has to be a major purge to get rid of the majority of them, including the rank and file who kept their mouths shut, who have caused an ongoing coup against a legitimately elected President and the voters who support him.

        Just read about True the Vote and what they did to Catherine Engelbrecht. And they’re still not finished.

        If the Deep State DEvils can do this to people with money and power, imagine what they can do to us- the Deplorables. I trust our beloved President and believe in him, but I also believe that letting this travesty go on and on does us no good.

      Actually that was floated during the baby Bush admin. Vets were asked to turn in their clients for having livestock without tags. One horse owner found her vet snooping around taking photos She called her husband who was a cop. He order the guy off the farm and confiscated the camera.

      US planning to recruit one in 24 Americans as citizen spies
      “…The Bush Administration aims to recruit millions of United States citizens as domestic informants in a program likely to alarm civil liberties groups. The program would use a minimum of 4 per cent of Americans to report “suspicious activity”. Civil liberties groups have already warned that, with the passage earlier this year of the Patriot Act, there is potential for abusive, large-scale investigations of US citizens. Highlighting the scope of the surveillance network, TIPS volunteers are being recruited primarily from among those whose work provides access to homes, businesses or transport systems. Letter carriers, utility employees, truck drivers and train conductors are among those named as targeted recruits.

      Historically, informant systems have been the tools of non-democratic states. According to a 1992 report by Harvard University’s Project on Justice, the accuracy of informant reports is problematic, with some informants having embellished the truth, and others suspected of having fabricated their reports…” http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2002/07/14/1026185141232.html

  14. A key phrase from President Trump’s tweet is that the spies were inserted into his campaign “from a very early date.” Which means 2015. We all know this, but it indicates that PDJT’s team has evidence proving it.

    Eventually, that evidence will be presented in court. But PDJT could be signaling to the people, specifically to citizen researchers such as are found in rich abundance at CTH, to go ahead and discover breadcrumbs leading to that Spygate activities that started before Papadopolous, before Mifsud. I.e., dismantle the most recent WaPo/NYT flavor-of-the-month cover story that was trotted when Halper was exposed.

    Forcing the MSM/deep state to contrive yet another cover up narrative in the span of a month or two won’t win this war. It won’t force MSM, Clappy, Angry Brennan, et al to come clean. They’ll keep digging their holes. But it will make them look just a little more ridiculous in the eyes of politically-attuned swing voters and it might even trickle down just a bit to the lo-fos.

    > “… Obviously the FISA/IC investigation is going to go into the locations of the CIA, ODNI, NSA and their intersection with the Department of Justice National Security Division, DOJ-NSD. …”

    We all appreciate IG Horowitz’s work, but he is the IG of the DoJ and the subordinate FBI.

    Where are the IGs of the CIA, ODNI, DIA, NSA, and State?
    Are they:
    – Asleep?
    – too busy worshiping Obama?
    – compromised by blackmail collected on them by
    illegal searches and unmasking?

    If they are being blackmailed into inaction, they need to be reassured that the American People will rally behind them, and forgive them for any infraction, because they are saving the American Republic from shadow forces of evil Donkey Masters!

    Seriously, Sundance, where are these other IGs? MIA?
    IG Horowitz should not be the only honest person of the bunch!

Just because a report isn’t public knowledge does NOT mean its not a Trump MOAB ready to be dropped at the proper time. Remember for a looooong time IG Horowitz wasn’t on anyones radar. Neither was prosecutor Huber. Few seem aware that a bombshell DHS/ODNI report into the 2016 elections has been ready for release for over 2 months now. Trump keeps his cards close to his vest. He’s always said he doesnt telegraph his moves to the enemy unless theres a strategic reason to do so. Of course every IG is busy.

      “… “I am confident that Mr. Huber’s review will include a full, complete and objective evaluation of these matters in a manner that is consistent with the law and facts,” Sessions wrote. “I receive regular updates from Mr. Huber and upon the conclusion of his review, will receive his recommendations as to whether any matters not currently under investigation should be opened, whether any matters currently under investigation require further resources, or whether any matters merit the appointment of a special counsel.”

      I am confident AG Sessions knows more about Huber than Sen Graham, who would like a 2nd SC appointed in order to drag out the sordid mess. Ms. Lindsey works for the Deep State. Although we in South Carolina attempted to beat Graham in the last primary, millions of dollars flowed into his war chest from outside the state and we failed to do so. Deep State also threw in several candidates into the primary so any true opposition was diluted. Once one of these suckers gets into office it’s extremely difficult to get ’em out.

    IG Horowitz’ report on Andrew McCabe was released well over a month ago and still McCabe is not charged with anything.

    Please don’t wait until after the 2018 Mid-Terms to take action on Andrew McCabe. The longer you and US Atty Huber wait, the more the (D) Party will smear the duly elected POTUS 45, Donald J Trump, at whose pleasure you serve.

    I totally agree with SD that the situation has reached a degree of complexity that there is little benefit in trying to chase down every possible angle–at least ’til more evidence surfaces. (Hope I paraphrased him/her correctly.)

    But here’s a ‘larger aspect’ of the case that is just beginning to get attention: It started early. Way early. Several outlets have reported that Stefan Halper, through an intermediary, reported his alarm to the IC when (at a CIS conference in Feb. 2014) Adm. Flynn sat next to an Anglo-Russian professor– a woman named Svetlana Lokhova. He warned it could be a honeypot hit on Flynn.

    It’s been suggested this was just a random act by the paranoid and Russo-phobic Halper. I think it’s entirely possible, however, that his actions were part of a larger scheme–a scheme to produce bogus intel product on Flynn so that his phones could be “tapped.” Remember, this was the period when Obama was purging hundreds of senior people from the military–and he was doing it by hook or by crook. I don’t think Obama would balk at paying for compromising intel on his opponents. It’s even possible Halper and Lokhova were working together to set-up Flynn.

    If, a couple of years later, Brennan was scouting around for a good excuse to surveille the Trump team, the Flynn connection would have made a perfect thread to latch onto.

      We remember Obama appointees spied on Reporter James Rosen, his parents, some AP reporters and Sharyl Atkinson whose work computer suddenly deleted her files. Obama officials also spied on members of Congress, possibly members of the Supreme Court, they also spied on Tea Party organizers and harrassed them with IRS audits. They also broke down the doors of the Gibson Guitar factory and seized product and basically shut down the company. There are many other examples of Obama abuse.
      I am unaware the Obama Administration sought FISA warrents. They were a law onto themselves, a true KGB operation. “Dreams from my Father” indeed.

      Since Brennan and Clapper have retired, there is NO IG to investigate them, but their communications that were recorded by the computer actions related to The Federal Records Act require that all reports, emails, and other communications be captured and stored as part of The Federal Records System.

      The The Inspector General of the Intelligence Community:
      Wayne Stone, Acting Inspector General, can review all records that Brennan and Clapper wrote, read, approved, and filed, and make determinations.

      It will take a US Attorney (like Huber in Utah) to work with a Grand Jury to get a subpoena to indict and try Brennan and Clapper in a criminal court of law.

      I hope that this helps your understanding!

    21 May 2018 Rosenstein DOJ IG expanded mandate is referencing Carter Page, George Papadopolous, and Sam Clovis – “counterintelligence investigation of persons (plural) suspected of involvement with the Russian agents…”

    Which would make the 28 Mar 2018 DOJ IG Investigation #3 refer to Stefan Halper, investigation confirmed by DOD spokesman Dana White 24 May 2018 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3S4MAIeYMZs

    “…at the time the applications (plural) were filed from or about an alleged FBI confidential source…as they relate to the FISC applications.”
    “From” – from Halper, DOD paid-for reports, subject matter known to DOD but not reported nor confirmed to be DOD-related, and not under investigation by DOD.
    “Or about” – FBI 302s about FBI CI mtgs with Halper, in London and possibly other locales.

    As for “the exhaustive defense systems of the Deep State” – there are Bad Guys, and there are Good Guys, within the Deep State. So far, the Good Guys appear to be winning The War, while losing a battle or two along the way. imo

    If you can stomach it, this PBS news hour segment with Shields and Brooks is a study in pure Trump Derangement Syndrome:

    These two don’t just have Common TDS, they have full blown Foaming TDS with Pustulent Outbreaks. They are clearly beyond medical help. They can’t believe the spying scandal is true, it would destroy their minds. But in their frantic denials, their fear is palpable.

    While watching their bile and Trump-hate is sickening, it is also strangely entertaining. The evidence is clear that the Deep State broke the law in an attempt to bring Trump down with the assistance of the UK. There is no hope the plot can succeed now, yet these two clowns are moaning that Trump has turned Mueller’s [McCabe’s] sham investigation to his advantage but are still desperately hoping that somehow, some way, Mueller is still going to “get Trump”.

    The truth is going to crush the Lame Scream Media. Their tears will be sweet nectar. As political partisans, instead of impartially investigating and covering the greatest political scandal in US history, the permanent Internet record shows the LSM actively tried to cover it up. But …

    Come out it will.

    Remember this press conference by Jeff Sessions way back in August of 2017 announcing the creation of a special Counter Intelligence team to investigate leaks?

    It hasn’t gotten much attention lately, but I’ll bet they’ve been really busy tracking down the follow up leaks about “Crossfire Hurricane” and the informant/source/spy/halper. Wouldn’t surprise me if a few of the initial leaks were deliberate, not only to get the story out there, but to prime the pump for illegal leaks so this team can get them. And once you’ve got ’em for leaking, who knows what else they’ll squeal about in order to get out of trouble.

    If you remember the “young bull/old bull” joke, well, Jeff Sessions strikes me as an Old Bull, and he’s almost to the bottom of the hill.

      Nine months ago. Where are the convicted leakers? A couple have been fired, but there is still quite a lot of leaking. Maybe just taking one to court would help plug the other leaks.

      Seems the entire coup team was leaking. But that is Huber territory. And rather than teaching the people by convicting them one by one, we seem to be waiting to try them all at once. Or in a secret court. Or maybe not at …?

      Definitely seem to be waiting until it can be argued that it might effect the election, so it must be delayed until after. But no such constraints are on Mueller.

      John A Thank you. Sadly, the deranged will continue to insist, all evidence to the contrary, that all Trump does is golf and tweet or that all Sessions does is sleep. Both men are apparently well rested traitors. The derangement would be hilarious if it wasnt so toxic.

        They want us discouraged so we do not get out the vote in November.

        All they do is make me ANGRY!

        Especially when they continually ignore primary evidence such as the DOJ ethics requirements for recusal; Sessions firing of Rosey and Trump’s refusal of his resignation; Sessions appointing Huber and his team of almost 500; AND the 29,000+ sealed indictments in the last 7 months.

    Oh, dear. I have to disagree with Sundance about something. It’s a rarity! The Shakespearean line: “The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers“ is uttered by the comic-relief sidekick of Jack Cade. Cade is fomenting a utopian revolution: “There shall be in England seven half-penny loaves sold for a penny: the three-hoop’d pot shall have ten hoops; and I will make it felony to drink small beer: all the realm shall be in common; and in Cheapside shall my palfrey go to grass” and later “There shall be no money; all shall eat and drink on my score; and I will apparel them all in one livery, that they may agree like brothers, and worship me their lord.”

    Dick the Butcher then utters the immortal line “The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers.” In other words, lawyers then as now are also tasked with upholding the law against tyrants and usurpers. Killing the lawyers would allow Cade’s ridiculous scheme to move forward unimpeded. In this analysis, the line is ironical.

    Some say that Dick was just a cut-up, and making fun of the string of over-the-top promises that Cade was making as in a campaign speech: “Revolt with me, and bread will be cheaper, beer will be plentiful, no one needs money” and then Dick chimes that there will also be no lawyers. In this anlysis, the line is a cheap joke.

    As irony, the line supports lawyers as upholders of law. As a cheap joke, the line would and continues to be a perfect Twitter tweet-meme: cheap laughs with no context. Dig deeper into the meme, and you’ll see the falsity: Utopia is a fantasy, as is Cade’s vision of utopia through revolution. But life is real, life is difficult, and in the settling our differences, we choose the rule of law, not the rule of tyrants. Lawyers help us do that.

    You’re welcome.

    Two quick points; oped by jason chevetz (sp?) does a pretty good job of outlining IG’s, how they work, etc and specifically Horowitz.
    Its pre-emptive to release of second report, to defend against anticipated critisism, he reiterates point ive posted before: msm pundits will TRY to spin report, or author, dismiss or say political, good luck with that.
    A new IG was recently appointed over CIA. Little fanfare, unlike new CIA director, but coincidence, I don’t THINK so.
    Also, questions on why arent we hearing from other IG’s; this is NORMAL. IG position is NOT for limelight grabbers. NORMALLY, they do not even aknowledge ongoing investigations, at all. They QUIETLY do their work, and issue report, and most of public doesnt have any idea what an IG is, or what they do.
    “Inspector General?,…Oh, hes the General, that inspects the troops! Yeah, THATS it!”
    Anyway, just cause WE arent ‘hearing’ anything from the IG for state, DOESN’T mean he’s not doing anything.
    Another part of “all this” that ‘come out, it will’; Obama admin didn’t appoint IG for state, during Hillaries term as SofS. Coincidence?
    Obummer issued E.O., ( i believe it was) basically nuetering IG’s, greatly restricting their authority, over strong objections of Horowitz. One of first regs undone by DJT. Point is, if presented and looked at properly, the premeditation, and planning, to politicise and weaponise ALL the depts of executive becomes clear.
    Embed political appointees in civil service, rather than political appointee positions, politicise DOJ, nueter IG’s, SO THAT you can “have the most scandal free admin”. Because there is NO ONE to bust the rulebreakers. Hence, Lois Lerner, Benghazi, Fast/Furious.
    Congress can have all the hearings they want, cause “what does it MATTER?”
    Congress has NO power to PROSECUTE; thats an EXECUTIVE function.
    This gets into the nuts and bolts, of HOW they did what they did, how they ‘got away with it’. It was planned, it was intentional, and it was the fox, not just getting control of the keys to the henhouse, but turning of the farmers power, (so no lights).
    Hillarys emails, spying on Trump campaign, Benghazi, Fast/Furious, etc. THIS is the NEXUS, that ties it all together. And, it shows forethought, planning, intent.
    This, truly is what needs to be exposed to American people.

      Just to let you know, embedding political appointees into deep state, high influence, civil service positions was a constant practice in the Clinton years.

      8 years of Clinton embeds, 8 years of Bush doing nothing about it, and 8 years of Obama embeds. And now, the Obama deep state rebellion needs to be put down.

    Zurichmike; just read your post: so, in the ACTUAL meaning, what obummer did, upon entering oval office first day, was say”first thing, lets kill all the lawyers!”, i.e. lets eliminate any restraint on our ability to be tyrants.
    And thats exactly what they did!

    Im certain 3 leaks, all with incorrect info, were planted to find and discredit leakers and media, just before DJT rally.
    Remember, one was email to don jr., purporting to show he had advance knowledge of wikileaks release? Cant recall others. Im pretty sure leaker, and ONLY leaker, was shown doctored email, with ‘wrong’ date. How to find a leaker, they busted 3 in one week, and then DJT came out in first rally,IIRC, after inaugeration, and lambasted the media for 3 fake news stories. Great move!!

    So with Spygate,,Obama, Clinton and the Dementocrats purloin government money, resources and employees to cover the costs of illegal surveillance of their political opponents. They were using government intelligence as a private eye service for individual profit and gain.. All on the tax payer’s dime. Call it what you like – redistribution of wealth, fundamentally transforming America, social justice – it’s still fleecing the public. What’s yours is mine by political fiat.

    At least with Watergate, any expenditure to cover the costs of spying came from Republican Party coffers.

    What a bunch of cheapskates and freeloaders.
