Congress and POTUS Will Be Briefed on IG Report Noon Tomorrow, Public Release 3:00pm…

Following the traditional process for releasing high-profile reports the Department of Justice – Office of Inspector General (DOJ-OIG) report will be released tomorrow with a briefing to congress and the president happening around Noon, and a public release at 3:00pm. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will brief the President while senior officials from the DOJ will brief congress and their staff.

The 500-page report will cover the DOJ and FBI conduct surrounding the Clinton classified email investigation, and was originally commissioned during the Obama administration to review whether the FBI and DOJ politicized the Clinton investigation and subsequent outcome.

WASHINGTON – […] Inspector general spokesman John Lavinsky said in a statement that the office occasionally gives pre-release briefings to Congress and the media, adding that, “for the Justice Department to brief the White House in the same manner and at the same time as the OIG briefs Congress and the press is consistent with this process.”

OIG refers to the Office of Inspector General.

Lavinsky noted that Justice Department officials had similarly briefed the Obama White House in 2012 upon completion of its report on the gunrunning scandal known as Operation Fast and Furious. He added that “no changes are made to the OIG’s report on account of these briefings.”  (read more)

    Horowitz Is Coming To Town
    (With apologies to: HAVEN GILLESPIE, J COOTS, J. FRED COOTS)

    You better watch out, you better not lie
    He’s gonna find out, I’m telling you why
    Horowitz is comin’ to town

    He’s making a list, of sedition and vice
    You are corrupt, now you pay the price
    Horowitz is comin’ to town

    He’s knows who’s been conspiring
    Page and Strzok are singing too
    He’s been reading all their messages
    And they’ve implicated YOU

    So, you better watch out, you better not lie
    He’s gonna find out, I’m telling you why
    Horowitz is comin’ to town

    Jeff Sessions is sly, and John Huber too
    They laid out the traps, to see what you’d do
    Horowitz is comin’ to town

    His title is Inspector General
    He’s on to your mistakes
    If he offers you a plea bargain
    That’s a deal that you should take

    Oh! You better watch out, you better not lie
    He’s gonna find out, I’m telling you why
    Horowitz is comin’ to town

    He nailed lyin McCabe, soon James Comey too
    Two dirty rats, let’s see who else they chew
    Horowitz is comin’ to town

    Though appointed by Obama
    Impartial is his middle name
    He’s not a Special Counsel, but
    The indictments are the same

    Oh! You better watch out, you better not lie
    He’s gonna find out, I’m telling you why
    Horowitz is comin’ to town

    You thought we’d believe, Trump’s collusion was true.
    But he checked it out, the collusion was YOU
    Horowitz is comin’ to town

    The honest law enforcement will watch the judge with glee
    They’re gonna build a gallows just outside the Grand Jury

    So! You better watch out, you better not lie
    Better plead out, I’m telling you why
    Horowitz is comin’ to town

    Meanwhile, Muh Russia, Muh Mueller, Democrats, Leftist, CoC, RINOs, MSM, EU, Canada, Mexico, China etc. are all dying a slow and irrevocable DEATH. These numbers from one of the most Liberal Polls is only going to get worse starting tomorrow when the IG Report is released for public consumption. Notice our President hasn’t tweeted a word about Muh Russia or the HOAX in the past 3 or so days. He realizes that Muh Mueller and the 13 Angry Democrats are yesterday’s news.

    From the article linked above:

    Special counsel Robert Mueller’s public image has sunk to an all-time low since he began his probe into possible collusion between the Trump 2016 presidential campaign and Russia, according to a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll.

    Months of sustained conservative attacks led by President Donald Trump and his allies has harmed Mueller most among Republicans, with a record 53% now saying they view the lead Russia investigator in an unfavorable light. That’s a 26-point spike since July, when the poll first started asking voters whether they viewed Mueller favorably or unfavorably.

    Mueller’s unfavorable numbers have hit highs among both Democrats and independents, at 24% and 33%, respectively. 36% of all registered voters are also seeing Mueller unfavorably, which represents the highest level since the polling first raised the topic 11 months ago. Back then, 23% of all voters said they viewed Mueller negatively.

    “Robert Mueller’s disapproval rating is at its highest point since Morning Consult and Politico began tracking the Special Counsel,” said Tyler Sinclair, Morning Consult’s managing director. “A key driver of this movement appears to be Republicans. Today, 53% of Republicans have an unfavorable impression of Robert Mueller, compared to just 27% who said the same in July 2017.”

    THIS MAKES THE PERCENTAGES ABOVE EVEN WORSE:

    Despite being a steady presence in the news since taking over the investigation last May, Mueller also continues to be little-known to many Americans. 32% of all voters, and 40% of independents, said they either had no opinion of the special counsel or had never heard of him.

But, a man who is put in place unconstitutionally to undo a duly elected presidency, and, to protect the traitors at the top of the foodchain of the conspiracy to frame an innocent man and overthrow the government, only 36% of registered voters see that unfavorably, and hardly anybody knows he is.

        It would seem by way of protocol, he has to: officially see it for the first time tomorrow, then see what’s released to the public, complain about the crazy RR redactions, then release/sign the EO authorizing redactions to be lifted.

        No idea how long that takes, but I’d guess a week from tomorrow? With him tweeting / teasing hints the week in between of what’s to come…

        It’s also important to look at the scope of the IG investigation. What the IG considers in scope and what he doesn’t want to cover being out of scope. Unlike Mueller, IG typically minimize the scope on explosive investigations to contain it. IGs only do a Mueller if it’s intent is to get someone.

      Note ” The review will not substitute the OIG’s judgement for the judgements made by the FBI or the Department regarding the substantive merits of investigative or prosecutive decisons.”

      So for example if you are expecting the IG to say “the decisions to hand out immunities like confetti in return for absolutely squat were insane and can only be consistent with deep rooted corruption” you are going to be disappointed. All the IG can say is whether DoJ procedures were followed in handing out immunities and, maybe, what justifications were offered in the paperwork for those immunities. You will have to draw your own conclusions from that.

      Likewise with the FBI permitting the destrcution of evidence. The IG can’t say “this is obviously corrupt” – all he can say is X authorised this and it was or was not in accordance with the rules. He can’t even say “the OIG is aware of no previous example of the FBI permitting a suspect to destroy evidence sight unseen by the FBI”

          JK,
          That is correct. OIG investigates, and refers possible criminal information to Huber. Huber investigates further, including information outside of the OIG’s jurisdiction, and presents that information to a Grand Jury seeking indictments.
          My bet is there are multiple indicted defendants and we will learn who they are very shortly. As OIG further reports, the same process will be in play.

          • Lee Moore says:

            Sure. But what we’re discussing is the DoJ and the FBI deliberately throwing an investigation for political purposes. While that’s a yuuuuge political offense, the question is what kind of criminal offenses might be hidden away in there ? Maybe Huber will be able to get enough to demonstrate obstruction of justice, as defined, but without in any way claiming to be a legal expert, I’d be doubtful that you can prosecute prosecutors for deliberately throwing a case, even if you can prove that’s what they did.

            They may scoop up some secondary stuff like lying, but my advice is not to be getting your hopes up about major league perp walks derived from this OIG investigation. Even if they did everything we all suspect them of, there may be no prosecutable crime. Just a very bad smell.

        Yep, since the IG cannot substitute their judgement for FBI/DOJ judgement, what can they find but policy violations and/or process crimes due to lying to the IG? Policy violations will bore the public (and are not criminal), and lying to the IG will just sound like what Mueller is convicting on.

        IMO, the scope of this phase just doesn’t lend itself to shock and awe no matter how well done it is,

        I’ve done more government audits than I’d like, and the easiest thing to tick off is the policy violations. But those are very rarely the root cause problems.

        I could do that –
        Comey was forced to reopen – because NYPD discovered all the classified Hillary emails on Weiner’s laptop.
        Comey closed again – because it was a Hillary cover-up from inception.

          Don’t forget McCabe sitting on the new emails for nearly a month, obviously in an attempt to delay their disclosure until after the election.

          I wonder if the CONTENT of any of the emails will be revealed. For example what if there is evidence of pay-to-play transactions involving the SoS, or other criminal behavior? Will it be referenced to Huber or another Prosecutor, but kept under wraps, or will the nature of the reference be revealed?

          I think the ultimate MOAB is likely lurking in the content of the emails, and there could conceivably even be a connection to other parts of the investigation.

      FBI Agent Sentenced for Falsifying Information When Applying for a Passport

      El PASO, Texas — Rhonda Lynn Chesser Lindstrom, 41, formerly of El Paso, Texas was sentenced Thursday, June 7, 2018, by Senior U.S. District Judge David Briones to four years’ probation and a $1,000 fine, on each count of the indictment, said terms to run concurrent, and to home confinement for a period of six months, following a four-day trial in March 2018, announced U.S. Attorney Erin Nealy Cox of the Northern District of Texas.

      Chesser Lindstrom was found guilty on three counts of false statement in application for a passport. In sentencing, the Court found Chesser Lindstrom had willfully obstructed justice.

      Because Chesser Lindstrom worked as a Special Agent in the El Paso FBI office, and presented cases to the Western District of Texas U.S. Attorney’s office, the Western District of Texas Assistant U.S. Attorneys were recused, and Northern District of Texas Assistant U.S. Attorney Paulina Jacobo was appointed as a Special Attorney to the Attorney General.

      According to evidence presented at trial, on June 10, 2014, Chesser Lindstrom personally appeared at the United States Department of State, El Paso Passport Agency (EPPA), and submitted an Application for a U.S. Passport. As required by the application, Chesser Lindstrom provided as proof of citizenship a State of Louisiana Birth Certificate issued on August 22, 2011. The date of birth on the birth certificate was August 26, 1977. As proof of identity, Chesser Lindstrom provided a State of Maryland Driver’s License with a date of birth of August 26, 1977.

      A Passport Specialist conducted a thorough and detailed review of Chesser Lindstrom’s Passport Application, and noticed that the birth certificate appeared to have been
      altered. Specifically, the birth certificate showed clear signs of handwritten alterations in three places, the birth number, birth date, and the file date. The birth certificate had erasures and numbers rewritten in the three places. Since it was obvious that the birth certificate was altered, the case was referred to the Fraud Prevention Manager (FPM)…..MORE:

      Since Comey justified his unprecedented initial press conference’ exonerating’, etc. because of Lynchs call to NYPD, regarding weiner laptop, SOMETHING regarding said laptop is certainly going to be in there, but what?

      The key criminsl refferals I would expect would BE “Obstruction of Justice”.
      For each instance, could be additional charge of “Conspiracy to Obstruct Justice”, but I.G. report may not ‘make case’for that, prosecutor may need to make thst case.
      McCabe, Comey, Lynch would be most likely for crim ref.
      My personal theory Lynch has been negotiating with Huber, for some time now.

Also, it seems even weeks and months after Stozyk/Page texts were released, finer pointed reading in association with tangential related bits were understood more fully. Might be same for this.

All while a large swath of a profoundly dazed, confused, and often willfully misinformed electorate remains clueless as they proclaim “Uh Politics” as they roll their eyes. This is (P)recisely how we got to this point. From everything I’ve studied about the Dept. of Just-Us, Famous But Incompetent, and DoState I expect a whitewash. Yesterday Sessions proclaimed his confidence in his dominatrix Rosenstein based on his (Rosenstein’s) “… 28 years in the Department of Justice”. This defines Sessions and like ilk. We are firmly in Straight Jacket Territory. Expect a Whitewash and as such perhaps no way back from the abyss.

    I’ m hoping that people who are making predictions are not going to spend their time telling others “Told ya so,” but rather will spend time actually reading whatever we get to read. An OIG report is never a criminal investigation, much less a prosecution. It might have led/will lead a prosecutor to investigate further. OIG report is the beginning and not the end. OIG report is not the final say on what can and cannot be prosecuted.

      BUT… remember that DJT has already signed an Executive Order which (supposedly) declassifies EVERYTHING, and he’s just waiting to release the Executive Order once the IG report is published.

      If they don’t redact everything, there will be no need.

      If they do like they always do, use redactions to cover their own crimes, DJT is already set to declassify it all and release the entire report without redactions.

      I hope it happens.

      We’ll find out soon.
