Sunday Talks: Maria Bartiromo Interviews Devin Nunes on IG Report and FBI/DOJ Misconduct….

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes appears on Fox News with Maria Bartiromo to discuss the particulars of the IG report and the upcoming week.

Bartiromo is one of the few pundits who has actually absorbed the entire landscape of the back-story, read the actual reports and invested her time into the details.  As such Ms. Bartiromo is able to take a comprehensive understanding forward into her interviews:

.

When we see that justice is measured, not by due process, but by compulsion; when we see that in order to invoke our fourth or sixth amendment right to privacy and due process, we need to obtain permission from men who rebuke the constitution; when we see that justice is determined by those who leverage, not in law, but in politics; when we see that men get power over individual liberty by graft and by scheme, and our representatives don’t protect us against them, but protect them against us; when we see corruption holding influence and individual liberty so easily dispatched and nullified; we may well know that our freedom is soon to perish.

How about all the “rank and file” who ignored a bazillion warnings about the shooter at Marjorie Stoneman High school? And we could also inquire as to their behavior in Las Vegas now couldn’t we? How about the fact that the Russians warned them more than once about the brothers in Boston.

            You can go back further than Bundy with Mueller. I am reading a book called “Inside Job” about 9/11. I know that isn’t popular here, but Mueller is behind not acting on intelligence that could have prevented the tragedy. He shut down FBI offices trying to warn about Middle Eastern men learning to fly planes.

            Mueller has never been any good.

One of the “Al Brothers” as we called them showed up. (Most of their names state red with Al). The Al Brother got to be in front of the line in front of us Navy and USMC student naval aviators.

The Leadership s obviously completely corrupt and drunk with power (including Wray in there for all his covering up). The rest are just basically taught they can do whatever they want and basically do whatever they want! It just isn’t able to be fixed, it has to be disbanded and rebuilt from the bottom up! Think about it, do we know anything about the Las Vegas shooting? Can we all agree that probably the majority attending that concert were Trump supporters?

        The FBI has been attempted to co-opt and corrupt local police agencies around the nation for years. FBI people hand out their business cards after spewing some sort of bile to all the new officers.

        They are instructed to contact the agents with details when they get out in the field.
        Details such as vehicle descriptions and plate/tag numbers (with a description of the driver, if possible) when they observe vehicles with certain bumper/window stickers, decals, etc.

        The ones they want reported?
        Oathkeepers, 3%, NRA, etc.

        Agreed. I think Trump has been waiting and waiting and waiting for Congress to impeach. He probably can’t believe it’s taken them this long ! Let’s hope we are finally there. Nunes is ready to go ballistic, but I have my doubts if Gowdy and Ryan will stick to their guns when the time comes. We’ll know this week if those two are just running a scam or actually going to do their Congressional jobs.

Wasn’t he counter intelligence? I am probably totally incorrect. I just find it strange that he is being blamed for so many of these treasonous activities. Could he be a fall guy? Please don’t attack me for this post. I am most likely wrong. I am simply thinking outside the box. In contrast to that thoughtm Strok could very well be SO corrupt that he thinks he can lie his way out of this and thus avoid the horrific justice that is about to be served to him.

        He won’t testify without full immunity. He isn’t a white hat….he is totally implicated in this and could be indicted for obstruction of justice. His lawyer wants an immunity agreement for him. We were told months ago that his continued employment with the FBI meant he was cooperating but that doesn’t seem to be the case. Where the hell is Mr. Huber and Mr. Sessions?

      There are hundreds of people facing criminal prosecutions with regard to the lawlessness of the Obama Administration. All of them face the option of telling the truth and taking their lumps, or telling a story. In isolation, however, they’ll end up with hundreds of different stories — which even a halfway competent prosecutor could use to show all of them are lies.

      If Strzok testifies in a public forum, all the swampers can use his testimony as a template for their own exoneration stories. They’d all end up more similar and credible. This is the same reason that Di-Fi published her release of classified information “while on antihistamines”. This is being welcomed and pushed because various members of the Congressional Committees are also swamp creatures.

      There is a certain risk to Strzok with this process — he could make the situation worse for himself. But you’d better believe that the swamp put their best people into creating a focus-grouped and well-documented narrative, and Strzok has had plenty of time in his little HR kiosk to practice it backwards, forwards, upside-down, and sideways.

    Thoughts,

    Why is this taking so long?

    Most common and logical answer, because this has to be a flawless above board literally unimpeachable execution of the law.

    Why is this so important?

    Because in six, ten, fourteen, eighteen years there is a possibility that there will be a Democrat administration, and that means automagic pardons all round.

    How can that be prevented?

    Any thoughts?

      It can’t. The quality of a prosecution has nothing to do with a pardon. The power of pardon is solely up to the discretion of the president.

      So if you are concerned about a pardon, there should be a quick, immediate prosecution, so they spend at least some time in prison.

      Making the prosecution perfect just minimizes the time in prison before the next dem is elected.

        is it possible Mueller now realizes there is nothing to find, and is going all out to madden trump? No more hope of finding anything. Clearly there’s nothing. Also Mueller’s reputation is ruined, and it is unlikely any prosecution he undertakes will succeed, so best hope remaining is to taunt Trump into a bad move that would shift the voter momentum (at the moment moving Trump’s way) before the midterms, enabling impeachment afterward. Maybe all those hyper impatient posters are trolls. ?

    So now congress is threatening to hold DOJ in contempt, perhaps to impeach.

    Eric Holder was held in contempt, didn’t seem to hurt him much. Impeaching Wray or Rosenstein would be appropriate, of course, but it would drag on and give the assorted NeverTrumpers, either Uniparty swamp dwellers or the SJW whackjobs in the general public, a bonfire to dance around that the Fake News peddlers would through gas on by the gallon.

    I don’t think this is going to solve anything, even if it’s the right thing to do. Something else has to happen to blow this wide open, and it won’t be contempt, toothless Congressional resolutions or endless impeachment hearings.

    Strzok’s lawyer claims his client wants to testify, no taking the Fifth, no immunity deal, in front of any congressional committee. Wonder what he’s trying to get in front of?

    Granted, the Department of Justice and the FBI were in the embrace of the Obama appointees for eight years and it is entirely possible that the the ethos of each department could have become more sensitized to the liberal view in that time.

    However, it is a different matter to claim that the entire DOJ and FBI have become antithetical to the rule of law and order and become purely partisan in nature.

    The tradition in the times of Aristotle was that politics is a sub-branch of ethics; ethics defined as the moral behavior of individuals and politics being the moral behavior of the group and society. It was Machiavelli who “discovered” political “realism” which is essentially the understanding that humans are jerks who govern by the highly selected “facts” of what best benefits their own self interest.

    Machiavelli inspired no revolutions or schools of thought or even political movements. He flopped. Totally. But he did succeed in telling us what defines the pernicious, despotic politician out to overturn the ethos. That politician is without ethics or religious principle. He is a weasel. Think of Eagle Scout James Comey who cooked the books and came up with his own formula which fit the needs of what he wanted the answer to be. Pure Machiavellian.

    The fact is there can be no Machiavellian Prince subsisting at the head of the DOJ or FBI while at the same time following the rule of law.

    Taking the same advice which Machiavelli offered the prince, we must gird ourselves and go to war with the would-be princes of disorder in the DOJ and the FBI and cast them out.

    The rule of law has already been distorted and made a mockery by those who seek a means to their own ambitions: Lynch, Comey, Obama, Holder, Clinton, and their faithful lap dogs. This also includes the members of Congress who would substitute convenience, cunning, caprice and cowardice over the rule of law.

    The enigma concerning the watchmen watching over the watchmen is writ large here. Sessions and Rosenstein and Wray and the Gang of Eight have all failed the tests of principle and clarity. This is no time for another politically stacked “blue ribbon commission” to launch another fluster-cluck garbage scow.

    How about turning this over to nine principled examiners who keep Kipling’s six honest serving men. They would examine the evidence and determine what, why, when, how, where and who. That would clear the stench of raw politics from the investigation. Having done that, applying the rule of law should be a breeze.

    The OIG Recommendation

    II.

    Recommendations
    For these reasons, and as more fully described in previous chapters, we recommend the following:
    1. The Department and the FBI consider developing practice guidance that would assist investigators and prosecutors in identifying the general risks with and alternatives to permitting a witness to attend a voluntary interview of another witness, in particular when the witness is serving as counsel for the other witness.

    2. The Department consider making explicit that, except in situations where the law requires or permits disclosure, an investigating agency cannot publicly announce its recommended charging decision prior to consulting with the Attorney General, Deputy Attorney General, U.S. Attorney, or his or her designee, and cannot proceed without the approval of one of these officials.

    3. The Department and the FBI consider adopting a policy addressing the appropriateness of Department employees discussing the conduct of uncharged individuals in public statements.

    4. The Department consider providing guidance to agents and prosecutors concerning the taking of overt investigative steps, indictments, public announcements, or other actions that could impact an election.

    5. The Office of the Deputy Attorney General consider taking steps to improve the retention and monitoring of text messages Department-wide.

    6. The FBI add a warning banner to all of the FBI’s mobile phones and
    mobile devices in order to further notify users that they have no reasonable expectation of privacy.

    7. The FBI consider (a) assessing whether it has provided adequate training to employees about the proper use of text messages and instant messages, including any related discovery obligations, and (b) providing additional guidance about the allowable uses of FBI devices for any non-governmental purpose, including guidance about the use of FBI devices for political conversations

    8. The FBI consider whether (a) it is appropriately educating employees
    about both its media contact policy and the Department’s ethics rules
    pertaining to the acceptance of gifts, and (b) its disciplinary provisions and penalties are sufficient to deter such improper conduct.

    9. Department ethics officials consider implementing a review of campaign donations when Department employees or their spouses run for public office.
