    IG report leaks will be in full force soon. Dem propaganda media is eager to discourage people from reading the report, so they will summarize it as “nothing to see here, move on”. But it can’t be 500 pages of nothing.

      There is a part of me that is hoping that VSGPDJT will tweet something about the report before the 3pm general public release so that MSM will be tweaked and have something to be outraged over, yet to spread knowledge about the report that might otherwise wind up being buried by MSM.

    GREAT AGAIN: Norwegian lawmakers nominate Trump for Nobel Peace Prize
    JUNE 13, 2018

    Norwegian state broadcaster NRK announced this week that President Trump is now officially in the running for the Nobel Peace Prize after his historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un Tuesday.

    Norwegian lawmakers Christian Tybring-Gjedde and Per-Willy Amundsen of the country’s Progress Party – similar to the Republican Party in the U.S. – nominated the president this week for the 2019 prize.

After I heard him defending DAG Rosenstein with unusual passion a couple of days ago I am beginning to have doubts. Why would he defend this guy who has over-stepped his authority, allowed SC Mueller to go on inappropriate and abusive witch hunt activities and not done anything but show that was and remains a crook capable of hiding self-compromising documents from PDJT-supporting congressmen and senators?

              Evelyn, he does have a host of health issues (including mental) which he has admitted to in the past.
              But his meltdown happened suddenly, during that time period when he disappeared from the public eye for several months for health reasons (if I remember right, it was months).
              When he came back, he was a completely different person, completely unhinged.
              I believe that whatever medications he started taking back then fried his brain.
              It was with sadness that I finally turned off his radio program years ago- I just could not take his insanity any more. And it was even more sad for the following reason…
              Back when Glenn still had a fully functioning brain, he was my Dad’s favorite commentator on Fox.
              I can imagine my Dad frowning on him from heaven, telling him “Glenn, get your act back together!”

    Let me add this little tidbit about AG Sessions:

    When you are a real boss, your subordinates should have much fear in going against your plans, wishes and decisions. Tell me, has Rosenstein been following Sessions orders or has he been insubordinate? Answer, no one can really tell at this point. After 18 months Sessions should have put the fear of God in his employees at the DOJ. But since he has not accomplished this task it appears that people like Rosenstein have run rough shot over him with no fear of consequences and Sessions has not made any public statements about his thoughts on the issues. I find this to be a total lack of leadership and it is hurting the president. This cannot go on for much longer.

            Do you realize what the left would do to continue to claim anything Sessions does is still part of his recusal….even if false…. they would create a “firestorm” saying Sessions cannot bring charges because of his recusal.

            They would connect his recusal to every charge, every situation and fight it in the courts

            Sessions cannot Un-recuse. They would say our President put undo pressure on him to resign.

            Same with the President firing him at this time…fire storm….

        ________________________________________
        You are willfully or not ignoring two facts,
        1) That the GOP Rinos in Senate made clear if Trump firers Session they will not approve another AG.
        2) POTUS fired Comey on advice of Rosenstein and then Rosenstein activates Mueller against POTS and his team.
        These clouds hang over President Trump and made him impotent concerning DIJ and oversight of FBI.
        Blame needs to go to Senators and Rosenstein and definitely Session who is hiding behind his excuse. He is ignorant or black hat when he praised Rosenstein on Tucker. There is another possibility concerning Session that he is over his head and needs Rosenstein to run the DOJ.
        No blame goes on POTUS he is a victim and blaming a victim is cowardice.

      This is the way Federal Civil Service operates, we used to refer to it as ‘punching out the Pillsbury Doughboy’. They are protected against being fired by a convoluted series of regulations – there was a person who’d been caught embezzling from our Fed agency and got out of it with a promise to pay it back, it was too big of a problem to prosecute.

      The senior GS and SES personnel know how to use the regulations, policies and procedures to throw as many ‘legal’ roadblocks between the Administration and their Administration assignment as possible. During the Bush II term I watched supervisors who…disliked…Bush put barriers up between our facility and his agenda that were very effective. They even used our layers to ‘legally’ get around following actual Federal law.

      Point is: just about every Federal law and regulation has backdoor so that no one is really oiffended or prevented from totally doing what the law/regulation was designed to prevent. All it takes is a skilled lawyer or senior GS/SES employee who knows how to read the rukles and see how to interpret them to his/her benefit. Trump’s best move would be to do what every previous POTUS has done and slam as many high-level appointees who think as he does into positions that allow them to influence the hiring of fulltime Feds under them, establishing a hive that will produce long after the POTUS is gone.

        Good points. I think the only way to clean up all this crookedness is to VASTLY reduce the size of the Federal Bureaucracy (and the state bureaucracies, too). After that, gut most of the rules and regulations that benefit only the “privileged class” in D.C., eliminate ALL of the loopholes, and basically start from scratch.

        Reduce the overhead and budgets by 90%, the number of employees by the same, and make every department and employee therein justify their existence.

          Other problem is the only way to get the Civil Service bureaucracy dealt with is thru actions by the Congressional bureaucracy and they’ve been unwilling to do that since well before I started with the Feds.
          Local Fed bureaucrats at top levels control a lot of Federal contract spending at the local level. Our huge parling lot had to be regularly maintained, our huge AC plant had to be maintained/fixed/repaired – even our garbage contracy was a cash/political plum. Congress starts rocking Civil Service’s boat at any level they all get their contractual parasites worked up about the feedbag being threatened and the businesses start leaning on their eromenoi.

          I used to have some suggestions about the most effective and efficient ways of pruning and descenting the Civil Service but I was regularly reminded they were all illegal at the Federal and local levels.

    One thing on OIG report: don’t let the swamp drag us into a debate over whether there was “political bias.” Political bias is not in itself a crime (it’s the likely MOTIVE for what surely are the crimes — obstruction of justice, lying, leaking, cover-ups, abuse of power).

    And the swamp loves to debate political bias, because it can do so endlessly, back-and-forth, setting the stage for the “adults in the room” to sum up the report by saying, “well, there appears to be wrong doing, and what it means depends on which side you’re on. Both sides are politicizing the report.” In short, debating “political bias” reduces the whole thing to “partisan politics.” This why, if you’ll notice, republicans (Gowdy, Ryan) who don’t want to seem swampy but also want to protect the IC quickly answer any question in terms of political bias. Gowdy *always* seems to talk as if THAT is the central question of wrongdoing here.

    Plainly speaking, political bias means basing investigative decisions on improper considerations (notice the phrase “improper considerations” in Horowitz’s scope letter — it never refers to bias). This is the way to talk about it. If we lead with political bias or make it the main point — i.e., shooting straight to the motives of exonerating Clinton and torpedoing Trump — we make it easier to be tuned out and dismissed. Just more partisan spin.

    Same thing with focusing on party, or individuals. Yes, it this happened under democrats (and it’s fair to consider that relevant, even definitive) — but it’s not helpful here, when the primary issue is rule of law and equal justice. Those values are blind to party, and protecting them should happen irrespective of party, and credibility on that point requires not making it about party. Same goes with individuals. This isn’t about particular animus toward Clinton — could have been anyone. And going after abuse of power isn’t about protecting or vindicating Trump — it’s about protecting the Presidency and our electoral system. You get the idea.

    The OIG report is the opportunity to focus on conduct, laws and values. Talk about those. Motive sounds partisan puts the uninitiated immediately in defense. If it doesn’t seem nakedly partisan, people will listen. At that point, what it means is inevitable. Motive is obvious. Leaving it unspoken is more powerful.

      Actually, its NOT about the ‘answer’, its about FRAMING THE QUESTION.

      The side that succesfuly frames the wuestion, controls the narrative, and therefore ‘wins’.

      THIS is the essence of ‘spin’, and your post does an excelkent job of elucidating it, in THIS instance.

      Apply the same principle, more broadly, its what msm, deepstate and uniparty have been TRYING to do to DJT.

      His GREATEST weapon against it, the ‘tweet’. It cuts through their b.s., and instantly reframes the question.

      Even more than anxiously awaiting the report, I wait with baited breath, the DJT tweets, ABOUT the report.

        There was a queen and her three knights and the queen said “Go on a journey, and who ever comes back with the most ping pong balls will be the king.

        ” So the knights go on their way. a few days later one knight come to the queen with 1000 ping pong balls.

        The next day the second knight comes with 10000 ping pong balls.

        About two or three days later the third one come with no ping pong balls but with bruises, scratches, and a broken leg.

        The queen says to the knight “Where are all of your ping pong balls?” and the knight says “Ping pong balls? I thought you said King Kong balls”

      Except that’s not what the article says.

      “The Department of Justice today announced the arrest of more than 2,300 suspected online child sex offenders during a three-month, nationwide, operation”

      So the arrests were not yesterday, but over a three month period. It certainly a good thing and there has been little reportage, but there’s no need for Cernovich to lie.

    I’ve never understood the charge that Comey usurped the role of the AG. It was Lynch’s responsibility to determine the next step. If she was compromised the duty fell to Yates. Whether comment spoke inappropriately as to his role is immaterial in terms of chain of command. That is not to say his pronouncement was not a firing offense. No doubt it was. Still, it was Lynch who failed to uphold her responsibility in making sure the DOJ took the FBI ‘s recommendation to its conclusion. This insubordination claim is nonsense.

    The OIG’s report only looks at the way DoJ handled the Clinton email server scandal. It’s narrow in its scope. This report will not bring closure to the Russia collusion scam, nor will it effectively lay on charges on the DoJ and FBI persons responsible for the coverup. The report is likely to leave us up in the air without assigning sufficient motive to why the case was covered up and not prosecuted.

    I think the only solution to this whole mess is for Sessions to empower Huber to bring all criminal cases forward and to tell Mueller that he’s relieved and his investigation super seeded by Hubers. Neither the country nor POTUS can withstand two more years of this debacle. POTUS could bring a rapid end to this by declassifying all relative documents and telling Sessions to unleash Huber and start prosecuting. No need for a new Special Prosecutor, no need to wait any longer to prosecute the criminals. Unfortunately, Sessions is the weak link in bringing this to closure. He needs to declare his allegiance to the Constitution and take on the tough job of cleaning out the DoJ and FBI of the seditionists who work for Obama/Clinton.

      Paco, Sessions’ seeming inaction is far from providing confidence in the process. So far we must rely on trust in PDT. I no longer believe Sessions and Rosenstein are playing 4D chess. Their actions are not inspiring confidence in our justice system as its two top officials. If they needed to play possum they could do so without the veiled and unveiled threats and obstruction of congressional oversight. This whole thing is sickening and it’s happening under PDT’s watch. Puzzled.

        Donzo, there are at least tens of potential perps involved in DOJ/FBI malfeasance, if not scores or more.
        There may not be solid evidence to bring all those to justice, nor are there prosecutors nor investigators available.

        IG Jeff is not in office to put forth a narrative.
        IG Jeff is there to successfully prosecute the prosecutable.

        Think about it. Where would one find all those necessary to do what you suggest? Certainly not in the Swamp. Taking AUSAs from around the country leaves the country unguarded.
