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)

    Twas the Night before the IG Report
    and all through the House . . . .
    Yes, it feels almost like Christmas Eve. I’ll be studying this closely Thursday night. CTH will be on fire anytime after 3 pm and pulling an all-nighter, I suspect.

    This is only the beginning. . . .

    Five hundred pages of what?

    How much will be substantially ‘just the facts’ and how much will be neutralizing, beauraucratic minutiae and legalistic parsing?

    And what about the predefined spin and interpretation that probably has already has been in place for a while with the MSM? And will hit the fan in sync from every outlet the second they want to.

    Hard to believe that with four hundred people apparently working on the report that an air tight vacuum has surrounded it. Especially with all the liasons, personal relationships and financial connections within the swamp.

    Survival and even revival of the status quo deep state beauraucratic system is the absolute highest priority for the vast majority of those making their living in the bowels of the swamp. How many want it shaken to its core, and have what’s behind the curtain exposed in stark detail? And have further future investigations digging even deeper?

    The IG is human, with a family, a social life, reputation and a future to think about. Does he want everything professional and personal to forever be under a microscope and at risk of destruction? Maybe there are some pure ultra white hat selfless idealists around, but realistically one can’t expect the MOAB that many have been wishing for.

    I think that even a watered down report can still be a plus in the big picture, as long as it provides enough leverage to lead into a prosecutorial phase. Huber may be the real difference maker, taking whatever Horowitz puts out there and amplifying it within the courts, where individuals have to stand alone and face scrutiny and exposure.

      • DAG Rod Rosenstein’s remarks at the International Economic Forum of the Americas Conference of Montreal (06/11/18) are illuminating. As to whether they are predictive, we shall see.

        Rosenstein leads off with a story about Richard Montgomery, born in Ireland, who came to America to fight with the British Army in the French and Indian War. He chose to become a farmer in New York, but when General George Washington asked him to join the American cause in the Revolution, he reluctant answered the call.

        “Montgomery fought his former colleagues courageously, but with a deep sense of regret. In October 1775, he wrote, ‘I most earnestly request to retire…. I have not the talents or temper for such a command. I am under the disagreeable necessity of acting eternally out of Character to wheedle, flatter, and lie…. I will bear with it for a short time, but I cannot support it long.’

        “In November 1775, Montgomery’s forces took Montreal. The next month, during the Battle of Quebec, he was shot and killed on New Year’s Eve. His role in the Revolutionary War lasted for only six months.

        “Montgomery’s final order was recorded as follows: ‘Come on, my good soldiers, your General calls upon you to come on.’

        “The British soldiers who defeated Montgomery nonetheless held him in high regard. British General Guy Carleton ordered a burial with dignity. An American prisoner who witnessed the funeral remarked that ‘Montgomery was beloved, because of his manliness of soul, heroic bravery, and suavity of manners.’”

        ” … Justice is a noble cause. It is no coincidence that the preamble to our Constitution identifies ‘establish[ing] justice’ among its primary objectives. James Madison, one of the drafters of the Constitution, wrote that’“justice is the [goal] of government. It is the [goal] of civil society. It ever has been and ever will be pursued until it be obtained, or until liberty be lost in the pursuit.’

        “A free and prosperous society depends upon the rule of law. The concept dates to the fourth century B.C. In the words of Aristotle, ‘justice is the bond of men in states, for the administration of justice, which is the determination of what is just, is the principle of order in political society.’

        “When the rule of law breaks down, it undermines essential aspects of modern civilization, including mutual trust and economic progress. They require a framework of established rules. For that reason, John MacArthur Maguire described law as a system of ‘wise restraints that make men free.'”

        “I visited the nation of Armenia in 1994, when it was transitioning to democracy. I delivered a lecture about laws that prohibit public corruption in the United States. When I finished, a perplexed student raised his hand. He asked, ‘If you can’t pay bribes in America, then how do you get electricity?’

        “That pragmatic question illustrated how the young man learned to think about his society. Corruption undermines law. It stifles innovation, creates inefficiency, and inculcates distrust.

        “In a rule of law system, when you apply to the government for a permit and you satisfy the legal requirements, you are not asking for a favor. You are entitled to the permit, and it is the government’s duty to give it to you.”

        “When I started my first management job, I completed a computerized training program that simulated decision-making in challenging circumstances. In one scenario, I was managing a team trapped in a collapsed mine. An engineer developed a plan to detonate a small explosive and open a path out of the mine. My choices included multiple options, such as, ‘I have great confidence in you, go ahead,’ and, ‘That sounds risky, let’s stop and reconsider.’

        “I always liked supportive supervisors. So I chose option 1: ‘I have great confidence in you.’

        “Can you guess what happened next? Of course, the mine blew up. Everybody died. That was quite a decisive lesson about leadership. It is best to learn that kind of lesson in training and not on the job.

        “People may think that they want the boss to stand behind them and offer support. But they really need a leader to stand in front of them and take responsibility.”

        “Twenty years ago, one of the most popular management books in America was called ‘Who Moved My Cheese?’ It is a fable about how to manage change. The story involves two small men who live in a maze. There is a place in the maze where they always find cheese. But one day, the cheese stops showing up in the usual spot. One man chooses to adapt to the new challenge. He ventures through the maze in search of the cheese. The other man sticks with his routine and refuses to change.

        “The adaptable man learns that the cheese is always moving. He constantly explores the maze, altering his pattern to prevent complacency from setting in.

        “The complacent man goes hungry.”

          Two small “mice” in a maze. I had to read that book when they first sold our division and later when they outsourced most of IT to IBM 20 years ago. Then insourced it back, then outsourced part of it to Siemens then outsourced almost all of it to Cognizant and Infosys. For 20+ years they neglected IT spending, following the age-old thinking of “If it is not broke don’t fix it”. Now we have obsolete IT systems and all the talent is gone and suddenly we find ourselves at the early stages of the Digital Revolution and we need to spend the next five years paying a contractor to fix our mess. It will cost more than they think and likely twice what it would have cost us if we didn’t see it coming a decade ago. They say we are not a computer company but they can’t run the company without computers. All the people that were present for the previous mistakes are gone, management lost their memory.

            So Rosey is a grad of the Who Moved My Cheese School of Leadership Development. (Mueller and Comey probably gave him a copy to read.)

            Also telling is that he chose to blowup the mine. Rather than acting as a red flag of his instinctive judgement as a leader, his answer becomes a learning opportunity, and possibly an indication that he will fit well in a f-up/move-up organization.

                IMO, Rosey’s read on WMMC is a superficial interpretation. For Rosey, the complacent man fails to put his sneakers on and explore the maze for other sources of cheese. The non complacent, according to Rosey, find cheese in other unexplored areas of the maze. For me, both are captives of the maze, and objects of study for the unseen hand that delivers the cheese.
                I think that a rat in a maze may be better off eating sawdust for a bit in order to escape the maze all together. For me, the message of WMMC is that it’s folly to look for, or expect accountability in a corrupt organization (Rosey’s complacent man). The non-complacent put on sneakers, eat sawdust if necessary, and create an escape. Complacent rats spend their careers searching the unaccountable maze for cheese, those that seek accountability get no cheese at all.

          A court order to muzzle the President would create constitutional questions. Wolfe works for Congress, article 1. He’s leaking documents classified by the executive branch, article 2, about which the chief executive publicly complains. Article 1 employee asks the article 3 court to muzzle the article 2 president. Coequal branches, but not coequal individuals. Wolfe is a mere employee violating Congress’s own rules. The judge is a mere district court judge, and he’s got an article 2 AUSA to order around, while the President holds all the article 2 executive power. I’d say the court could muzzle the AUSA, but not POTUS.

    After a time of both sides, Dems and Republicans, bickering back and forth and the public that actually cares about this (you and me) complaining “Where’s the beef?”, POTUS will say, “Enough is enough” and order the Report to be un-redacted.

    Then all hell will break loose in DC and the Media, like stepping on a mound of fire ants.

    Get ready, THE BIG UGLY IS HERE!

    I’m sorry SD I love your work but it is long past time time to start putting Clinton in the category she belongs in when it deals with classified information, Clinton was an original classification authority, it is very important to understand just exactly what that means, once its understood everything else is moot period.

      Yea, I’m not sure what you’re implying either. I pretty much dealt with (military) classified info everyday for 20+ years. She didn’t declassify anything before transmitting it. Also, she wasn’t the oadr for the classified (TS SAP) intel she was mishandling. She may have been read-in, but she didn’t own (originate) it. There’s a process one must go through to declassify info.

      BTW, no intent is ever required. When Comey said intent mattered, he was lying his rear end off. Example: I worked with a guy who accidentally carried his classified ledger outside the building and through the security guard turnstile. He realized his mistake and immediately tried to go back through. The guards stopped him and arrested him on the spot. The next time I saw him, he was driving the base bus awaiting his discharge from the military.

      This whole issue is a sickening double standard.

      Why would you think Sundance, the Admins, or any of the commenters here do not understand original classification authority?
      That assumption is dumb. Just plain dumb.

      Maybe Mr. President will be briefing Rosenstein on working with Congress and producing requested documents immediately.

      It will be very interesting to hear any Trump comments after this briefing. if there is no lavish praise for Rosenstein, we’ll know the IG Report was a crock.

We’ve allowed the Liberals to protest, riot, create havoc and call our President and those who voted for him every vile name and curse him while he continues to fight daily for our great America and people(without pay). Come on! 60+ million people voted for this man because we wanted change, he IS delivering on his promises, he loves America and cares about every one of us. When are we going to step up?????

      IMO it’s only because of the Mueller investigation that we haven’t gotten a lot further toward the goal of imprisoning the traitors. But release of the IG report is definitely a step in the right direction. Be positive, it’s a lot more fun. 🙂

    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.

    And we know how many criminal referrals were made to the DOJ . It was a complete whitewash.

      Mueller just did it to Manafort. Reopened a closed FBI investigation from 2005, and charged him. It’s part of the case with Judge Emmet Sullivan where the judge demanded to see the unredacted scope memo. Still waiting for the ruling.

    I just have to say Thank you to everyone on this sight. I have been following this blog and comments for over six months now and I can’t seem to get enough of the commentary from everyone on here. I have always sought out the truth in politics and that can be very challenging at this time in history. But I believe that I may have stumbled onto something here. The insight from Sundance and everyone here is refreshing! Hopefully tomorrow will be a great day in history and the beginning of Americans waking up to what actually is going on in there government.
    God Bless you all !

    What I wish Trump would do when Rosenstein comes over to the WH to brief him is this….

    Mr. Rosenstein, have you read this report? Assuming he has Trump should ask next,

    Do you think the FBI and DOJ handled the Clinton email and server investigation properly?

    If he says yes then Trump should fire him on the spot.

    If he says no Trump should immediately ask if Huber and the DOJ are moving forward with indictments.

    Trump still has no control over the DOJ and believing in this lemming Horowitz is beyond stupid. Don’t think we will ever get the truth. The days of this being a government of the people have long been dead and buried. We are now in the process of being steamrolled by Global Collectivist claptrap. From which bastion of the People will the truth now come? Relax, get your popcorn, and see what your government really thinks of you. PDJT can annoy them a little bit, but he can’t stop them. He can’t even identify most of Obama’s gang of Commies, much less get rid of them. Government controls us now, no matter who supposedly represents the People. It was all over 26 years ago when Willie picked his cabinet from among the Collective.

  47. How to Read the IG Report. In a previous life (as a reporter) I used to have to do this on deadline all the time. So, here’s how I’ll attack it. Let’s assume it’s formatted like the McCabe Report. Section I will be titled “Introduction and Summary of Findings.” I’ll skim it first, looking for the juicy stuff, then go back and read it at more leisurely pace. Section II will be titled: Relevant Statutes, Policies and Practices. Eh. This section probably will just set the baseline for how things should be done. I’ll probably be way more interested in Section III: Factual Findings. This ought to have the details of what is in Section I but include much more detail. There may be additional details in whatever appendices are added. For example, where will they put the verbatim text of the relevant emails and text messages? In Section 3 or in an appendix? Section IV will be the OIG analysis which may be more details about what is included in the Section I summary. Other IG reports I’ve read also have sections on OIG recommendations regarding improving policies and procedures. They also include the responses by the relevant units within the agency. Criminal referrals were not included in the McCabe report, so I’m not expecting them here. Based on what I’ve read, the criminal referral on McCabe was made before the IG released his report. What am I expecting? I figure diGenova knows a lot more than I do. And he says he expects criminal charges against a few government officials involved in the investigation. In the videos, diGenova and others cite chapter and verse on how the investigation should have been conducted, that is with grand jury testimony under oath, subpoenas, search warrants and no immunity. If the IG report compares the Clinton probe with how it ought to have been conducted, then it will be clear that the whole thing was a sham. And it would serve as the predicate for a do-over.
