Giddy Up – Senate Judiciary Committee Schedules Hearing on IG Report Tuesday June 5th….

The comprehensive IG final draft report on the FBI handling of the Clinton investigation was circulated for principal feedback on May 16th. Following typical timelines of IG ‘draft reports’ we anticipated the Final Report release around the first week of June.

Well, Senator Chuck Grassley has just scheduled a hearing on the release for next Tuesday June 5th. So anticipate the final publication and public release any day now.

Senate Committee Hearing LINK

In the DOJ oversight aspect the Senate Judiciary Committee ranks #2.  Second only to the House Judiciary Committee (Goodlatte) who holds primary justice department oversight.

    Ok, question – I know this report is supposed to mainly cover the handling of the Clinton investigation, but given the additional information Horowitz has uncovered (e.g., he first saw the Page-Strzrok texts as a result of the investigation) and the overlap between this, the spying on the Trump campaign, and the FISA abuse …

    … how broad or narrow will this particular IG report be? Anyone have any information more than a guess?

      I’ve read the report is over 400 pages. It’s all conjecture, so I won’t speculate on the details of how broad or narrow.

      IMHO, you don’t take well over a year to publish over 400 pages to say, “Nothing to see here, move along.”

      Seeing some of the pessimism here, to me, is astounding.
      I’m quite excited to see the report and the inevitable criminal referrals.

        You’ll notice smarty, that most of the pessimism is from people who are not regular posters here Half the names I don’t recognize and I’ve been here since ’13. Secondly, some people try to protect themselves from disappointment. It’s easier to say that nothing is going to happen, and then something big happen than the other way around. That way the person can say they were right if it’s nothing, or they’ll be pleasantly surprised if it’s big. Either way it goes, the ego is protected. That’s how I see it anyway, but what do I know.

          Unfair comment. This is an open blog so anyone has the right to comment. Also, being pessimistic doesn’t make you a troll. Too many people have been too disappointed for too long by government, so it’s a natural reaction to imagine it will never happen. I’m personally optimistic that DJT will deliver on Spygate and the Wall, because he keeps his promises and lets no attack go unpunished. However, if like me, you work in a place where everyone else is a Dem who regurgitates the lies of the MSM, then it’s normal to have off-days.

      I think it’s going to be more broad than just the Clinton emails. On page 1 of the comments, Kathryn W posted this:

      The January 12, 2017 IG letter identified six items to review “regarding certain actions by the Department of Justice (Department) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in advance of the 2016 election”

      This is going to be about the DOB/FBI shoddy “investigation” plus some other stuff, hopefully the illegal spying on the Trump campaign.

      • Thanks for giving me credit, but the January IG letter that I cited specifically calls out five items and some were pushed by the Democrats (handling of Hillary emails). Obama was still President. The Obama folks thought they were still in the clear – they were a fairly small group, top floor of FBI/Justice. Sally Yates thought she had closed the IG from anything to do with counter-intelligence. They were “too smart for their own britches” (as my Mother said many times).
        I’m hoping that the FISA/CI abuse investigation began way before it was publicly announced (March of THIS year!) – I don’t believe Huber was brought in to simply prosecute “failure to follow policy or protocols”.

      It will only cover the Clinton email investigation.

      Why?

      Because the felonious and irregular handling of the Clinton email investigation is what sets the stage for all else. It will show how the “small group” within the FBI essentially let Hillary off the hook, and in so doing prove the corruption inside the FBI.

      That is what sets the stage for the next reveal….how they spied on Trump in an effort to A) rig the election and B) conduct a “soft coup” once he was elected.

      Think of it this way. Sessions is taking down a crime family. At it’s head are Clinton and Obama.

      The first reveals are going to be about the people (and corruption) underneath them. Later will come the evidence and proof that Hillary and Obama knew about said corruption, even condoning it.

        You are on the right track, but what I’ve been preaching is that Sessions could have, and should have, dropped these indictments of Hillary’s earlier known and documented crimes, as you point out correctly. No Sessions apologist can explain or excuse his inaction. INDICTMENTS could have dropped a year and a half ago on Hillary, beginning the turning of the tide and the start of the establishment of the Rule of law.

          Arkansas & the Clinton Connection – Judicial Watch

          “Rumors have been floating up from Little Rock for months now of a new investigation into the Clinton Foundation. John Solomon advanced the story recently in a January report for The Hill. FBI agents in the Arkansas capital, he wrote, “have taken the lead” in a new Justice Department inquiry “into whether the Clinton Foundation engaged in any pay-to-play politics or other illegal activities while Hillary Clinton served as secretary of state.” Solomon reports that the probe “may also examine whether any tax-exempt assets were converted for personal or political use and whether the foundation complied with applicable tax laws.” Main Justice also is “re-examining whether there are any unresolved issues from the closed case into Clinton’s transmission of classified information through her personal email server,” Solomon notes.

          Solomon is not alone. The Wall Street Journal is tracking the story. And earlier this month, investigative journalist Peter Schweizer cryptically told SiriusXM radio that federal authorities should “convene a grand jury” in Little Rock “and let the American people look at the evidence” about the Clinton Foundation.[…]”

          It is not “as good a place to start” – it is the best place to start. Most of the evidence is indisputable.
          Server/emails in unsecured home location(= felony), classified info included(= felony).
          Comey quoted as standing down the investigation because of lack of intent and no sensible court would prosecute. When the reality (and law), don’t require intent and courts shouldn’t be anticipated to ignore the law. Comey proves himself guilty of malpractice/incompetence with the “lack of intent” comment. You’d have thought the FBI Director would know the law!
          It will be easily understood by voters of all persuasion as an open and shut case.

          The FISA case will be much more difficult to follow, but will be made easier by demonstrating the criminality in the previous case. This is why I agree with ForGodandCountry a few posts up regarding this just being about the Clinton emails and irregularities at the FBI/DOJ etc.

    I’m posting my poem again because the time for the IG report is finally at hand. I want to offer encouragement to all Treepers – don’t give up now!

    ‘Twas the night before judgement and all through the town,
    Not a swamp rat was sleeping, nor were the clowns.
    The IG report was ready to share,
    And cries for swift justice would soon fill the air.
    Nunes’ on the cusp of getting to know,
    The names of the traitors – the lowest of low;
    The rats had conspired, but couldn’t prevail,
    Now tortured by visions of trials and jail.
    The forgotten man and woman, too,
    Were about to find out the extent of the coup.
    And deep from the swamp there arose such a clatter,
    “Trump’s gotta go, our lives have been shattered!”
    Your lives have been shattered? Ha! Look at you chumps,
    You’ve plotted and schemed to depose Donald Trump;
    You’ve tried your best with your sordid attacks,
    And connived to elect Hillary to cover your tracks.
    The banksters, CoC, the Uniparty Cabal,
    You’ve all had your chance, now you’re ready to fall.
    You’ve been wrecking our country for many a year,
    “We’re a service economy!” Yes, that’s what we’ve feared;
    For so long we’ve been told it’s what’s best for us all,
    President Trump woke us up to the extent of your gall.
    He promised to change the way DC was run,
    He cut regulations and energy dominance begun,
    Brought factories back and tax cuts for all,
    Funded the military and started building the wall.
    So, pardon me please if you think your way’s best,
    It only helps you to feather your nest.
    The mainstream media, which is a Marxist’s dream,
    Will soon have to answer for their complicit regime;
    Corrupt to the core, they’ve been fulfilling their role
    As fake news purveyors and internet trolls.
    Little did the swamp know, Sessions team went to work,
    Filing indictments aplenty, just like clockwork.
    Many thanks to our patriots, to Admiral Rogers – the best!
    To Nunes, Grassley, Horowitz, Goodlatte, and the rest;
    To Sundance and crew for the excellent work that you do,
    You constantly inform us. My hat’s off to you!
    And here’s what I say as the end is in sight,
    “A great big MAGA to all, and to all a great night!”

    Regarding the OIG report. With “0” being, “There was nothing and everybody does it.” Which will send so many of us into a blind fury rage and “100” being what we all want, what is the over/under of the report? Regardless of what we hope for, what is the realistic number the OIG will provide? Of course with all the previous investigations being swept under the rug of nothingness, pretty much anything is progress.

    With the MSM/POTUS 44 members touting the “scandal free administration” lately, my thoughts are pretty much anything above about a 2-5 will basically be labeling many many more as un-indicted co-conspirators.

    Fun facts, Hart Bldg Room 216:

    “But if it lacks the drama of historic showdowns, the scene of Sotomayor’s confirmation hearings does offer some advantages. Hart 216 can accommodate 156 members of the media, not counting the television booths that peer down above the room. There are enough chairs for nearly 100 members of the administration and official witnesses….

    And it’s not like nothing has ever happened in Hart 216. Justice[s] David H. Souter [and Sotomayor were] confirmed there…. And hearings to decide which military bases to close also happened there.”

    Why are all of you freaking out about Gowdy? He doesn’t have the last word on this–although he’s certainly trying to have the FIRST word on it.

    Don’t you sense that this time things are different? In the past, when there’s been a scandal involving an important Democrat, the entire Uniparty has done their three-ring circus act and then swept it under the rug (Benghazi, Fast and Furious, etc. etc.). Well, this time they can do all the performing they want in their three-ring circus, and they probably will. Only this time, somebody (ahem . . . Sessions) pulled the rug out from under their feet . . . . because THEY don’t have the final say. Huber and, ultimately, a grand jury do!

    Just my opinion; The deep state ‘floats’ defences. A recent one, firdt by dershowitz, then nap, “it was just POLITICS, (trying to imply both sides do it, and more importantly not a crime).
    That doesnt work, ive already posted on that.
    This one, been expecting. ” What would you have us do? We recieve information, coming in from multiple sources, during a Presidential campaign, that one of the candidates was a ‘manchurian candidate’, who had been ‘turned’ by Russia, and/or that his campaign was calluding with russia, to win the election. The ultimate counter intelligence night mare. Hollywood movie stuff. SOME of the info was coming from the opposing campaigns op research, yes. Does that, in and of itself, mean we should ignore it, and do NOTHING?”
    That is the basis for the defence. However, like previous defences falls flat. Elements in the IC, working with the opposing campaign, generated these false reports of collusion, etc.
    Elements in administration using illegal 702 requests, unmasked names and leaked to reporters. Put unmasked names it Pres daily brief, WHICH OBAMA CHANGED RULES, TO BROADLY DITRIBUTE.
    In short, “defence” doesn’t work, any more than any previous defence. And anyone who goes on Natl. TV, and ‘argues’ such a patently bogus ‘defence’ of clearly indefensible behavior is simply putting a big, black hat on their head, for all to see.
    My favorite so far, is the previous “just politics, everyone does it’.
    Responce:OH, why didnt ya SAY so. DJT IS ‘inexperienced’ and didnt know. So, in 2020 he’ll weaponise/politicise the IC, to use against his opponents, cause “hey, its just politics, right?
    No, its not just politics, and no, this was NOT a ‘legitimate’, justifiable countrr-terrorism investigation. It was, however the same kind of behavior we have seen thru out the Obama years.
    “Chicago style” politics, politicising ALL the Depts of Executive branch, and abusing their powers for political ends.
    Not ‘just’ Lerner, fast/furious, etc. The DOJ engageing in extortion against deep pockets, and settling by having ‘defendants’ pay left wing ’causes’ the ‘waterways rule enabling siezing of land, the ranchers grazing rites debacle to get land for harry reid deal, and yes, hillary traveling the world selling/extorting pay for play. Uranium 1, Iran deal, they had an unlimited piggy bank, to pay off phony rinos, and operation to blackmail those who wouldnt bribe.
    And by subverting DOJ, and nuetering IG’s, they had the fix in. No negative consequences for any actors.
    Anyway, they will TRY this “it was legitimate counter intel”, but it won’t fly.
    Dates dont match up, explanations dont hold up.
    But, ‘nice try’, here, let me give you a fresh shovel, so hou can keep digging.

    On previous delays;
    ONE reason is discovery: in a ‘normal’ criminal trial, one of the first things defence lawyers do is file for discovery.
    Prosecution must turn over ALL evidence they have, to defence.
    In this NOT ‘normal’ case, the IG report will contain most, if not all evidence. May even include some exculpatory evidence. And defendents lawyers, and you can bet they are all layered up, will be pouring over it. And this, presumably prior to any indictments or arrests. So, its POSSIBLE Huber wanted to make sure he had ducks in a row, prior to ‘showing’ defendants lawyers his ‘hand’.
    Coarse, also possible Huber, independant of IG, developed evidence on his own. That would be an ‘ace in the hole’.
    Defendants may spend weeks presenting their defence, in court of public opinion, only to have Huber sitting on conclusive evidence, shredding their defence. (His ace in hole)

    Gowdy is more foolsome than fulsome. The enemy is numerous and characterised by lack of sincerity. This silly-looking and silly-sounding man’s bluster was punctured a time ago by the Benghazi hearing, and only the terrible current lack of Republican leadership affords whatever remaining credibility permits him a high level oversight responsibility, luckily junior.

    He is caught out during the course of this interview, and he’s caught out so easily, and so badly, that whatever reputation he supposedly earned as a prosecutor must have been acquired against criminals significantly more stupid than the Clintons. Some fool, and fulsomely foolsome he has proved to be – verbose and insincere as well – at Benghazi where he went swaggering into a fight to be immediately sucker punched, proved to be a cartoon and a fake.

    But we must fight on, leaving Trey to burble his little inanities at the roadside. There are people to soon take the Republican House and Senate leadership, good ones who will become heads of oversight,too. It’s a long fight. Those who complain maybe thought it would be easy to change a vast self-serving machine that holds a great mass of wealth. Forget it, it’s going to take years. But what needs to be remembered is that the enemy is disturbed, unsettled, and knows he is in trouble. The enemy is making a lot of mistakes. He is desperate to win the midterm elections – in fact these may be his only hope.

    Is it possible Gowdy is out there offering praise for the institutions of the DOJ and FBI because to tear these down would create chaos? By saying the corruption is endemic, you’d open the floodgates to have every charge, every trial, every sentence since the start of Obama’s regime revisited via appeal? In short, you can’t destroy the instutions, you must remove the corrupt individuals.Certainnly the process of removing bad actors has been proceeding swiftly.

    Gowdy’s position isn’t such that he can’t change if facts subsequently show otherwize.Nor does it stop him from calling out individuals for mafeasance or improper acts.I just believe a decision was made to protect the instutions while rolling back the bad players and actions.
