      > “… We need 218 votes for impeachment of Rosenstein. …”

      I’m well read on many of these topics, like the details on impeaching a President, but unclear on the impeachment of an inferior Executive Branch Agency minor staffer.

      Let’s say The House votes to Impeach Rod Rosenstain (who is a stain on the US Constitution). I understand how that part works.

      Does the Impeachment of this minor nobody yaahoo, Rosenstain then need a 2/3 vote in the Senate to confirm the Impeachment, or does it just proceed on a simple Senate Majority?

      I tried to find this information with multiple web searches (not using the communist Google!), but found nothing.

      Does anyone know if Impeaching Rosenstain follows the same procedures of Impeaching Willy “BJ” Clinton, or is there a lower standard for Impeaching the not worthy of being in a history book, cancers on America, like Roddy Rosenstain?

        That ” inferior Executive Branch Agency minor staffer” isn’t so unfortunately minor. RR would normally “only” be 2nd in command of the Department of Justice … but since Sessions has recused himself from the job of Attorney General, the #2 in command (RR) basically becomes #1 — certainly a travesty of justice, for the purported “Department of Justice”.

        The # isn’t labelled on this pic, but Wray of the FBI, is #4 in the chain.

          Not true. Sessions recused himself from investigations related to Trump’s campaign ONLY, not from the entire job of USAG!

            Alright, that is true. It certainly seems like it at times, though. I’m still coming to grips with the fact that Sessions is doing exactly what he’s supposed to be doing. Stuff “off-camera”.

              I appreciate the fact that you admit being wrong. You have my respect for that. I suspect your lack of patience with Sessions may come from not understanding that he literally had zero choice other than recusing himself from involvement in any investigations related to the Trump campaign.

              Since he was a part of that campaign, he is absolutely legally forbidden from being involved in investigations related to it. Title 28, Chapter I, Section 45.2 of the Code of Federal Regulation, titled “Disqualification arising from personal or political relationship” absolutely forbids Sessions from being involved in any investigation into Trump’s campaign.

              I’ve linked to Section 45.2 below for your convenience; but the portions pertinent to Sessions’ recusal are as follows…

              “…no [DOJ] employee shall participate in a criminal investigation or prosecution if he has a personal or political relationship with:

              (1) Any person or organization substantially involved in the conduct that is the subject of the investigation or prosecution; or

              (2) Any person or organization which he knows has a specific and substantial interest that would be directly affected by the outcome of the investigation or prosecution.
              (…)
              (c) For the purposes of this section:

              (1) Political relationship means a close identification with an elected official, a candidate (whether or not successful) for elective, public office, a political party, or a campaign organization, arising from service as a principal adviser thereto or a principal official thereof…”

              Since Sessions was an integral part of the Trump campaign, Section 45.2 absolutely forbids him from being involved in any manner with any investigation relating to the Trump campaign.

              By the way, “being involved” would include participating in gathering documents such Nunes and/or others have demanded from the DOJ; as well as, instructing Rosenstein or others to gather and turn over such documents to Nunes, et al. Sessions literally has to maintain a hands off policy regarding EVERY LITTLE DETAIL of any investigation into the Trump campaign.

              The bottom line is that USAG Sessions is an honorable man who believes in the strict adherence to the law and to the Constitution; and, is doing everything possible to do so. I would not have it any other way…

              See https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/CFR-2005-title28-vol2/xml/CFR-2005-title28-vol2-sec45-2.xml

              If you have not already seen the following, I highly recommend it in order to further understand why Trump has not simply fired Sessions, Rosenstein and Wray. https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1007792551213125637.html

                  Neither Mueller or Rosenstein were ever a part of the Trump campaign. Therefore, they are not required to recuse themselves under the same law that required Sessions to recuse himself.

                  However, Mueller’s MANY conflicts of interest should have kept him from being appointed by Rosenstein; and, the fact that Rosenstein ignored those conflicts of interest is grounds to fire him, in my opinion. Having said that, it’s not my decision to make; and, the fact that Trump has not fired him makes me believe Trump has a good reason for NOT firing him.

                  Further, I believe that Trump has not fired Mueller is because Mueller is doing himself and the Deep State way more harm than he’s doing to Trump.

                  That does seem to be a reason for great concern right now. However, long term, it is not that big a deal. Gradually, the president is appointing strict Constitutionalist judges to any positions available. Therefore, in the future, when Congress passes unconstitutional laws or otherwise acts in violation of the Constitution; and, cases are brought before these new judges, they will rule against the bad actions of the bad actors in Congress.

                  One might say that President Trump is reestablishing the rule of law from top to bottom; and, rebalancing the three equal branches of government so they can once again act as the check on each other as was visualized by the Framers of the Constitution.

              Re “AG Sessions’ recusal is for the alleged Russian involvement in his campaign is it not?”

              The following is probably more information than is needed; but, I’m a Sagittarius. Sometimes, we analyze things way too much, sorry…

              What you said is a true statement; but, it’s not a complete statement; i.e., the fact that Russia was/is a part of an investigation from which Sessions recused himself is coincidental to the law under which he did so. In other words, it was not “alleged Russian involvement” in and of itself that made it legally necessary for Sessions to recuse himself. Rather, he did so for the following three reasons:

              1. He was an inherent part of Trump’s campaign.
              2. An investigation was initiated to look into certain aspects of the Trump campaign.
              3. The law says Sessions cannot be involved in ANY investigation into a campaign he was a part of (what the ‘certain aspects’ of the investigation are is immaterial).

              So…. Sessions cannot be involved in ANY part of ANY investigation into the Trump campaign, period. It does not matter if the investigation was meant to discover the color underwear Trump wore during his campaign, Sessions cannot be involved.

              Re “Since the investigation into Clinton’s email server is about mishandling of classified information, is Sessions totally recused from this?”

              To the best of my knowledge/memory, the investigation into Clinton’s email server is completely separate from the investigation into the Trump campaign. So, in my opinion, Sessions is not required to recuse himself from the Clinton email server investigation and has not done so.

        Same standard, 2/3 concurrence of the Senators present. Article 1, Section 3, last two paragraphs.

        The list of US impeachments is not very long. Rosenstein would be just the 20th impeachment ever. If charges were brought to the House floor, he might even resign before they could vote, just to avoid ending up on that list.

        @ Newt Love…

        Here is what the Constitution says about Impeachment:

        Article I, Section 2, paragraph 5: “The House of Representatives shall chuse their Speaker and other Officers; and shall have the sole Power of Impeachment.”

        Article I, Section 3, paragraphs 6 & 7: “The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.

        Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States: but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to Indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law.”

        Article II. Section 2, paragraph 1: “The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.”

        Article II, Section 4: ” The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.”

        Article III, Section 2, paragraph 3: “The Trial of all Crimes, except in Cases of Impeachment, shall be by Jury; and such Trial shall be held in the State where the said Crimes shall have been committed; but when not committed within any State, the Trial shall be at such Place or Places as the Congress may by Law have directed.”

        And yet, the JS recusal was based on a technicality, unknown to him at the time. The “investigation” was a continuation of a counter-intelligence operation, not a criminal investigation, from which he would absolutely have to recuse himself. The timeline, acquisition of the Title-1 warrants and renewals, and the info on which they was based bears that out.

        It’s okay. The Silent Assassin has been freed up to do other important work, while the culpable busy themselves trying to cover up, obfuscate, and pass the buck – observed the entire time. They know how screwed they are, and have for a while now, but acting like they’re gonna extricate themselves is something else entirely.

          True, and which, is further convoluted by the fact that, by law, a Special Counsel such as Mueller can conduct a criminal investigation ONLY.

          In other words, Mueller is conducting an investigation that is illegal by any legal standard that can be applied.

          That is also why, at the time the investigation began, Sessions could ONLY assume that he MUST recuse himself.

          The president has legal grounds to end Mueller’s investigation on a number of levels; yet, he has not done so. That is part of the reason I believe Trump understands it is in his best interest to simply allow Mueller to continue cutting off the limb he’s climbed out on…

          Re “It’s okay. The Silent Assassin has been freed up to do other important work…”

          Amen to that! I wish everyone understood that.

      Yeah, but like “the worm” that has turned, Peter Strzok is rolling over, twisting himself in knots, because he knows that without his service weapon, he is nothing.

      Little Petey is a frail little human, who will be a favorite lap puppet for the burly “death row” inmates that will populate the Federal Penitentiary where Little Petey will spend the rest of his life, being “driven from behind” by his cellmates. Little Petey knows that if he doesn’t plea bargain with US Attorney Huber, then his life will soon be multiple daily sessions of being used as a porn prop (like Strumpy McDangles)..

      It couldn’t happen to a nicer guy, to die in prison of AIDS and Syphilis. I hope that his cellmates take care of Little Petey several times a day.

If they can’t admit what everyone knows to be true, than why would they admit to far greater offenses of subverting an election and attempting to overthrow a duly elected president. No one in their right mind would admit to treasonous acts, especially when the only hard evidence would be that confession. A huge takeaway from this ig report should be that the purpose of any cooperation occurring is to protect the institution and its leadership. Not justice.

    Ryan is already running for 2020 POTUS, he is not interested in helping to get to the bottom of this……

    Get Jim Jordan in there or anyone who Ryan does NOT endorse to be speaker.

    Rep DeSantis again expressed dismay over the Strzok txt, – “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.” – being withheld from Congress. I’m not sure that it was actually withheld but simply not yet discovered. It appears that there was still forensic work going on yet in May even as the report was being finalized. (We heard on a couple of occasions rumors that it was delayed due to the discovery of new info.) So here is the exchange as detailed on page 404 (now, that right there is funny if you know what 404 means…) of the report.

    “August 8, 2016: In a text message on August 8, 2016, Page stated, “[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!” Strzok responded,“No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.””

    And footnote 203 at the bottom of the page explains:

    “Although we received Page’s August 8 text message to Strzok from the FBI as part of its production of text messages in 2017, Strzok’s response to Page was not among those preserved by the FBI’s text message preservation software, and therefore was not produced to us. The OIG’s Cyber Investigations Office recovered this text message, along with others, in May 2018 through forensic analysis of a folder found on Page’s and Strzok’s Samsung S5 devices.”

    And for those who might have missed it, there is also an interesting footnote #199 on page 398 that states:

    “The OIG is preparing a separate report on its text message recovery efforts and findings.”

    And one more thing… Note above the mention of the OIG Cyber Investigations Office. Gee, I wonder if they might be helpful re the Weiner laptop image?

      “I’m not sure that it was actually withheld but simply not yet discovered.”

      My understanding is that that particular text was redacted when those texts were originally released, then unredacted in the IG report. Which is what Nunes, DeSantis et al are so up in arms about. “Why are WE finding out about this in the IG report after demanding this information for months on end?”.

        Don’t think it was “redacted”. It’s worse than that. It was deleted and recovered by the IG

          That’s right. The FBI didn’t redact it, they didn’t “have” it to turn over. Whether or not it had been purposely deleted from the FBI text message preservation database, we don’t know for sure (but we can guess).

          The OIG has their own Cyber Investigation guys. They were the ones who actually retrieved that txt from either Strzok’s or Page’s phone but not until just last month. So I don’t think it was available to turn over to congress at the time they requested all the txts.

    Why is there no outrage on the part of Gowdy or Goodlatte about the laughhable claims of non-bias in the Executive Summary (which should be read as Wray’s conclusions), given the pervasive evidence of bias in the facts of the report? And why does Bair not ask them if they can explain it? In fact Gowdy expresses cautious support for Wray!

    Yeah….but it matters not what Matt and Ron say. All that matters is the DoJ deciding to prosecute the many felonies revealed.
    The DoJ has refused to prosecute, ask Wray if you don’t believe me. The Deep state decides.

    PDJT is complaining no -one is being prosecuted, yet he can fix it. Replace Sessions and thereafter Rosie and Wray. Problem solved prosecutions flow.
    The President seems to be pretending he can’t fix this in 5 minutes.

    This has to end now. The IG report could have brought so much more to the surface and this is just a test to see how far the deep state can go to sell a full pile of shit covered with a doilie to the American public. A special counsel needs to be appointed to go after Clapper, Brennan and the hoax they setup with Misfud, Halper and more. The entire story is known at this point except for a few minor details.

    It is eerie how the IG report is EXACTLY like the James Comey July 2016 Hillary report that listed an entire litany of violations and then said we could not prove intent.
    Except in this case the summary concludes we could not prove bias!

    What a f****d up country!

    All of us who follow Sundance should have predicted this with 100% certainty.

    Meanwhie, Mueller violates standard procedure and throws Manafort into jail pending the trial.

    It is clear this country is irreversibly doomed to a poilce state run by the nanny state progressives.

    Now it is clear why the suicide rate is increasing dramatically.

      “could not prove bias”

      No, it could not prove by the standard of beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law that bias had a material effect, mainly because it made no effort to compare the treatment of the Hildabeast with how we peons would have been treated or how Trump has been treated.

      These scumbags aren’t stupid. They won’t do anything which could be interpreted as blatantly illegal. They just gradually and collectively bend justice 180 degrees.

      NO, he describes the resulting situation exactly, but got the fundamental cause wrong. We are not powerless, not at all. NO ONE has EVER refused to leave office WHEN VOTED OUT. The situation is FUNDAMENTALLY due to people not paying adequate attention and not voting properly.

      HOWEVER, since the vast majority of people don’t take the time to pay adequate attention and, as he pointed out with his education comment, most people are NEVER trained in the LEARNED skill of critical thinking and never make the effort to do so on their own, people who DO pay attention and who ARE skilled in the critical thought process are surrounded by an overwhelming majority of USEFUL IDIOTS.

      SO, corporate owned government doesn’t have us by the nads by virtue of our powerlessness, it has the country by the nads by virtue of IDIOT VOTERS.

      “That kind of skeptical, questioning, ‘don’t accept what authority tells you’ attitude of science – is also nearly identical to the attitude of mind necessary for a functioning democracy. Science and democracy have very consonant values and approaches, and I don’t think you can have one without the other.” – Carl Sagan

      “I think people in power have a vested interest to oppose critical thinking. You see, if we don’t improve our understanding of critical thinking and develop it as kind of second nature, we are just suckers ready to be taken by the next charlatan who ambles along… there are lots of ways to gain power and money by deceiving people who are not skilled in critical thinking.” – Carl Sagan, radio interview, May 1996

  23. The fact that the FBI Director seems to think we need to put training wheels on senior executives in the bureau is disgusting. It would seem evident that the bureau has been running on autopilot and may be more harmful than helpful to the American people when ethical law enforcement is needed most. . The FBI needs to begin hiring people with common sense, a sense of ethics and loyalty to the people it is supposed to serve. It needs to severely discipline those who failed to have the integrity and ethics required of those in our most elite law enforcement agency.

    When Strzok said “no he’s not, we will stop him” he was referring to the insurance policy AFTER the election, I presume. What does that have to do with the Clinton emails which is what this investigation is about?

      Strzok wrote this 8 days after opening the investigation into Russia/Trump in response to the question (by Page) “Trump won’t become president right?”

      What does this have to do with the Clinton investigation? The report is about the handling of the Clinton investigation and it’s unavoidable discussing how the FBI botched the Clinton investigation without discussing political bias. The MSM is focusing on the summary of the report to push the idea that there was no political bias in the investigation but you have to wonder why Candidate Trump, who had nothing to do with the crimes committed by Clinton and nothing to do with the investigation, figures so prominently in a report about the crimes committed by Clinton and the investigation into those crimes. The answer is obviously: political bias.

      This political bias against Candidate/President Trump will be a running theme in all of the reports coming out of the OIG.
