Eight Lawmakers Demand IG Horowitz Unmask Names of Hidden FBI/DOJ Employees…

Well, here’s a start.  Eight House Republicans have asked Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz for the specific names of FBI employees mentioned in last week’s report on the Hillary Clinton email investigation:

The letter is signed by Representatives: Andy Biggs, R-Ariz.; Dave Brat, R-Va.; Scott DesJarlais, R-Tenn.; Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., Paul Gosar, R-Ariz.; Jody Hice, R-Ga., Jim Jordan, R-Ohio; and Ralph Norman, R-S.C.

      The Nazi holocaust claimed six million innocent lives. It is estimated that communists claimed two hundred million lives in the twentieth century. That means the communists killed somewhere about thirty three people for every person that Hitler’s Nazi’s did..

            Yes correct.

            Because “He Who was Elected FOUR (4) Times as President of the USA” was friends with The Russian Community Organizer that changed his name to Stalin. Stalin killed 11 million refuseniks in 1934 (took about 14 months to starve them out by closing all access to the Ukraine)…..As a reward, towards the end of the 14 month Holomodor which was almost double Hitler’s (~ 8? year) Holocaust, FDR sponsored Stalin into the League of Nations. Estimates vary of course. The rest is history, we had a new friend (Uncle Joe) and many east block countries didn’t get to say what happened until 1989-91 when the camps and walls came down.

            After WW2, all camp counselors in Dachau and Auschwitz had summer break …. Stalin kept several dozen camps open for business.

            Find a professor in the US who teaches the Soviet Holomodor in World History and Sundance will send you a lot of money.

              New York Times Correspondent Walter Duranty (described by Malcolm Muggeridge as “the greatest liar I ever saw in my 50 years in journalism) was the person most responsible for getting US to recognize the Soviet Union, right after the Terror Famine in the Ukraine and right before The Great Terror, Stalin’s purges and the Moscow Trials.

            • And after the war, was it not Churchill who declared “We killed the wrong pig”? People can make evil friendships when trying to defend land, and money. Britain’s sole interest was holding onto the Empire. They even denied access to the Jews. Britain didn’t want them, and it wasn’t until the 1960’s that Jews were allowed to join employment unions. All rather odd considering Churchills mother was an American Jewess who saved his families fortunes. There is a song with a chorus ‘Britons never shall be slaves’. They always were, and still are slaves.

              Before going to war with Russia, Hitler studied Stalin’s work camps and they became the model for the Nazi Holocaust camps. So all Stalin had to do is change the name over the door to Russian.

        You’re pointing to a very important nexus: however they hated each other, ALL of these murderous regimes represent Progressive ideology arising from the Scientific Socialism movement of the mid-19th Century. This same movement gave the world Phrenology, Socialism, Behavioralism (Tabla Rasa) and Social Hygiene.

        We laugh at Phrenology today, but our governments, schools and universities still practice Racialism, the enduring remnant of Phrenology. This shows the depth of 19th Century scientific socialist doctrine penetration and establishment within our government. Dr. Rummel’s research into 20th Century Democide (murder by government) demonstrates governments murdered more of their citizens during peace time that we’re killed in all wars and major conflicts of the 20th Century — by a factor of 6.

        Progressivism is a superiority cult. “They are better than you because” as Alan Watts liked to say. The characteristic “condescension of disgust” is broadly on display today. What is the defining culture of public sector unions in the modern era? Supremacism. They are a self-satisfying superiority cult. This is the FBI on display; the DOJ: the DNC, their union sycophants in media and education. They are so better than you because.

        Progressivism is a thought disorder; an inculcated thought disorder; infectious and malignant. It can only be spread through an institutional host.

          The SJWs ruining our public schools are a superiority cult (thanks for teaching me the term).
          The administrators of the system just know that the black children are inferior to their own children, so it is up to them to save them. They don’t admit this to themselves, though. They see themselves as superior to the rest of us, the racists who would stop them from saving the poor little black children.

            Your name was not on that list. I support both this move and the appointment of a second Special Counsel looking into the start of the Trump-Russia investigation, which I believe is a cover-up for spying that was done on the campaign starting in 2015. I would like my congressman to represent me, rather than having to rely on Californian congressman Devin Nunes to do so.

      This hearing needs to be different than all previous ones. Time to set the tone that WE are not taking this schiff anymore.

      Start out with the fast fire questions instead of letting the good questions go unanswered for time restraints. Stop with the platitudes.. we know its a long detailed report and that there are 32,000 good decent people in the FBI. Thats NOT the problem here folks!

      Get some key answers… What was the insurance policy? Is Strzok getting immunity or why is he still employed? How can you be sure you have all the information from Comey, Lynch, and all the other agents that handled this? Huma emails? Who read them? Why are they hiding documents from Congress?

      Make them say they can’t answer because of pending indictments and grand jury material! At least we will know and anyone watching that this isn’t the end of this and that they got away with it! If they think “training” is going to stop the rampant disregard for the law, they are crazy. What stops it is jail!

      There should be (if there isn’t already) a federal law mandating VERY stiff penalties for any gov’t employee abusing/using who can be shown to exhibit any political bias while performing the duties of their office, not to mention abusing the powers of their office for political partisan purposes.

      Minimum of 20 years in a federal pen and ineligible for parole until at least 3/4ths of the sentence has been fulfilled. Additionally, said convict will suffer the full and permanent revocation of any and all accrued benefits related to said job, and furthermore be barred from any kind gov’t employment at any level federal, state, or local, nationwide, for life. Moreover, said convict may not run for any public, elected office for life.

      The only thing these people understand is fear.

      I want a law that would make the Strzok text messages a slam dunk case and a “Do Not Pass GO” card into the federal pen for the sentence above.

          Horowitz: virtually everyone on the MYE exhibited extreme bias and poor decision-making. But we cannot be certain that zealous bias and bad decisions affect the outcome of an investigation. Juuuuussst not sure.

          There’s a reason that bias or even the appearance of bias have to be recused. It’s because the thing speaks for itself — you don’t have to “prove” that bias affects an investigation, it’s assumed.

            There was another comment that I read that posited the idea that “bias” did not affect the outcome of the investigation, but rather it was the overt orders of those in the Department of Justice and the Obama Administration that affected the outcome of the investigation. I believe this IG Report had a very narrow focus – that of determining whether political bias affected the outcome of the investigation. Could it be that there is much more outside the scope of this investigation that is yet to be revealed? And when questioned specifically about bias, Horowitz and Wray can say yes there was bias, but it didn’t affect the outcome, because something else much more concrete and sinister did (orders from above), but we cannot discuss or acknowledge it in this forum. Wray could already know that the FBI agents were under orders by Lynch and such to handle it the way they did, and therefore he is sticking up for the agents, because he knows they were just following orders. This seems somewhat plausible based on the types of narrow responses I saw from Horowitz and Wray, as well as their allusion to other investigations, and highly confidential things they cannot discuss.

              I think Horowitz was insinuating what you’re describing. He was constrained from saying something like, “the bias was a poison pill — but in this case also irrelevant, because the decisions made by Justice prevented any different course on the particular decisions we looked at.” Unfortunately not being able to give a full explanation left his bias discussion sounding nonsensical.

            If they admitted bias, there would have to be another election because obviously Clinton was injured by the bias. Their WHOLE point would be the holding for a month the Clinton e-mails on the Weiner laptop. Not a soul on the left passes up the ability to deem the current Presidency an illegitimate one. I can sympathize with that. I haven’t read the report but I’m betting the words Coup d’Etat were NEVER mentioned, right?

            So yeah…in the middle of some of my most trying times, I enjoy the most dark and acerbic humor. Humor during a rough spot is not the answer for everyone, so I understand.

            I continue to stand with PDJT. That’s the only person I “feel” good about. I’m good with chicken suits for the rest.

            The Deep State exists in many countries. There are many people who identify with President Trump’s battle at home in the United States and most thinking people across the world acknowledge the influence of events in America as important to their own interests.
            You have to be interested in politics to find your way to the Treehouse, particularly if you live in a foreign country. People who support the President are needed everywhere, and particularly in European or Western countries they face every prejudice or even more animosity than those in the United States.
            In your own terms, such people are definitely inside the wire. Although Americans can take heart that televising events such as the hearing screened yesterday demonstrates positives about the American system, large elements of the display are disturbing and depressing. Humour (deliberately spelled this way) is a component badly needed to sustain morale.
            The pain caused by Mr Wray and the Democrat senators needs an antidote – and if part of the antidote is ridicule of Deep State actors and part of it comes from the Antipodes, I suggest it be welcomed.
            We, because I watch this from Britain, understand the pain. The pain is felt here, too, where the Deep State is almost certainly entrenched to such an extent that the battle is lost unless the European Union breaks down. Even if that happens it will take a generation to free us from the grip of vast bureaucracy and oppressive socialist systems. We are in a worse position, arguably, than the US.
            We need Donald Trump, we need a Great America, and we fight as long and hard for every principle that motivates right-thinking Americans. This affects the entire globe. Let us stick together, and fight together…..and laugh together when we can.
            I don’t mean this as a reproach, but I say this as we resign ourselves to a longer battle than many hoped. It’s likely we will have to stick together for a long time.

                  Some of these conditions are for the time being, uniquely American. It wouldn’t hurt to TRY to empathize with the citizens you engage with while on these threads.

    Here’s a pretty helpful Twitter thread from @SentinelVI
    Apologies if it’s already been posted elsewhere.
    SentinelVI
    1. Ok. I’m going to take a crack at analyzing what we’re seeing yet again.

    My request to twitter is – tear my analysis apart with scrutiny. Let’s see where the holes are.

    2. I’ll start with President Trump’s initial response to the IG report on Fox and Friends. Start at 13:00.

    3. “I think it’s happening – it’s happening slowly but it’s happening. I think Christopher Wray is very different from Comey which you need, he’s like the opposite. He’s moving step by step”

    4. “It’s all gonna happen, but I try to stay as much uninvolved as I can.”

    5. As I said last week, Trump assigned Wray & Sessions two jobs when he hired them.

    Bring wrongdoers to justice, and preserve / restore the integrity of the DOJ and FBI.

    6. Unsurprisingly, no one asked Horowitz at the hearing today whether his interviewees were under oath. NO ONE is asking the question “how do we know these people are telling the truth?”

    7. These people aren’t dumb. Horowitz himself would likely tell you that he knows that the testimony is BS, the witnesses are not credible, and the explanations for their actions, while conveniently phrased and mired in legalese and “do not recalls” are nonsense.

    8. However, the FBI (OPR) and the OIG are tools in Sessions/Wray’s toolkit for the jobs they are trying to do.

    9. Horowitz made very clear repeatedly that the OIG does not make value judgements about the veracity of its evidence, nor the investigative choices that were made. It’s not his role.

    10. Lying to an OIG investigator is a felony, from what I found last week when the report came out. But it is not Horowitz’ job to demonstrate the lies when the evidence of that falls outside of the official “on record” stuff like testimony and documentation.

    11. Likewise, Wray’s job cannot include demonstrating the falsifiability of FBI documentation or officials testimony – because by doing so he would eviscerate his own ability to produce such things later on (not to mention compromising a ton of unrelated FBI ongoing work)

    12. We heard again about the empanelment of a Grand Jury today. We have heard nary a peep from the leak investigation, nor have we heard from Huber.

    13. There was a moment, and I pointed this out, where Horowitz said that McCabe claimed something, and then abruptly reworded to “stated”

    14. Horowitz must not make any judgement calls as to who was lying and who isn’t. His role is to publically memorialize all official evidence as it exists. That’s it.

    15. If the public record has all of the documentation and testimony as a baseline starting point, Huber can easily begin to roll out proof in full sunlight as to where it is contradicted by “non official evidence”.

    16. Material from personal accounts and devices, conversations off the record – all obtainable by Huber’s GJ but not obtainable by Horowitz’s strict by the books gathering of in-agency evidence.

    17. By rolling the information out this way, Horowitz and Wray are able to continue to maintain their usefulness without the media and left screaming that they are being manipulated by Trump’s puppet strings (which would taint the eventual cases as well)

    18. I’ve said many times that trying to prosecute this vast top level case is the most difficult legal undertaking in history.

    19. The insiders have nearly unlimited tools at their disposal to ruin evidence, taint cases, spin narratives, and avoid justice.

    20. In order to succeed, the DOJ must be able to convince a jury to unanimously declare guilt – and if they fail to do so, double jeopardy (and public exoneration) means that you never get another shot.

    21. Just take a moment to consider how difficult a task that is – even with FANTASTIC evidence – in today’s climate.

    22. It has to be a perfect checkmate. Getting all of these peoples’ statements firmly out there in the public record limits their options going forward. It is PAINSTAKINGLY slow.

    23. They know this, but it’s the only way.

    Get it all out there, then let Huber come in and prove them all liars. OIG maintains its integrity (we did not improperly assume bias based on the evidence we gathered), and can continue its work unhindered.

    24. At the end of the day, I don’t think Trump is acting how we would expect if the walls were closing in on him. He’s actually acting like he knows the battle is won, and everything from here on out is cleanup.

    25. Just keep watching.

      Two moments worth noting from today’s hearing. At one point one of the Dem idiots was going on and on about Muh Russia to Horowitz. Horowitz had the look one would have when you know someone is making a fool of themselves but u can’t tell them for some very good reason. Then the exchange with Cruz and Wray. When Wray was saying he wanted to tell Cruz about the investigation into Comey but couldn’t he had the look of someone that wants to take down Comey. It was a brief moment where he had a genuine smile of “if you only knew what i know” Ted. President Trump has convinced the Dems and the media that he is so independent of the FBI/DOJ that he is bordering on obstruction. If I were instructing my subordinates to clean up the FBI/DOJ, for political purposes i would do exactly what President Trump is doing. He extended the olive branch to the Libs on immigration today too! He said make the deal before u get slaughtered in the midterms. Of course they won’t deal and President Trump will be right again and the immigration bill that is passed after the election will be better than we ever could have hoped for

      No, my take is different. Nothing will happen, Wray seems like an uninterested sideline player who doesn’t understand what’s going on, Sessions is who he seems, an idiot, and Horowitz failed to find bias in Clinton investigation? Really? You can read into this all you want but the fact is I have given up on lady justice being blind. She is not blind and the perps are running free and will continue to. Yes I am negative but have reason to be. I served this country and would serve again if we fight back at some point, but counting on these Washington lifers to fix this issue isn’t the solution.

        The stench of the Clinton and Obama crime sprees across our major federal agencies is unbearable for all involved. The scope is massive. The complexity is brutalizing. The exhaustion and fatigue will continue to build.

        By the time we begin to see the full weight and magnitude of correctional momentum arising out of the now mostly hidden grand jury process, the bad actors will be at their weakest and most indefensible condition yet. There will be pain and lots of it.

Did Horowitz do this report for free or something? Why does everyone feel the need to “thank” somebody who probably collected 6 figures for assembling 500 pages of details that they cannot even summarize accurately.
    I’m glad they did write the letter tho, even if it is ignored.
    I think President Trump needs to start building his own cadre of loyal politicians. Several of these House members like Gaetz, Gohmert, Jordan.. etc..would be very helpful if Trump ever gets the opportunity to go on offense against Mueller & Rosenstein regarding selected exposure of classified documents.
    The President could invite these guys to dinner at the WH, or even a golf outing at Mar A Lago maybe. Trump could even joke about how he is getting his own “intelligence informants” together. The media chimps would crap peanuts for days afterwards.

      That fact, the fact that he is still the Director at President Trump’s pleasure, and the small fact that Wray would not take any of the Senators’ bait to criticize the President, may, collectively, indicate that he is playing a role in this saga that may become more obvious later.

      I have not liked what he’s said, his whitewashing statements about his organization, his reticence to admit the obvious as is clearly evident in the OIG report, and his deflections to hard questions. However, stepping back to a higher altitude, it does fit the role of someone there for a positive purpose but who is required to appear completely neutral during the process, no matter how heavy the flak.

          In law enforcement when there is a general consensus that a department has wronged the majority of its leos or its a gross problem, those who are about to retire or just retired are the ones who sue the department because they are going out the door, cannot be touched, and have no worries about their careers. Often successful, the lawsuit benefits those left behind.

      Seems like retiring could cut either way: liberated to go for the jugular, or so foot-out-the-door they don’t even try for appearance sake. I think Goodlatte has given us reason to think he’s more the former. He seems dialed in. Gowdey is a bit of a wild card — but I’m expecting him to step up. (I could see him having the same style as Cruz — picking a specific topic and drilling it home.)

      Sort of separate topic, but was Nunes trolling his fellow committee members today with his tweet saying he’d like to know who is the DOJ prosecutor who “texted in French” to save his colleagues having to ask? Funny his tweet last night, then the letter from the others today . . .not sure what that was about!

    POTUS should be worried, not about Mueller but about people tuning out. He campaigned on draining the swamp in 2016, it’s halfway through 2018 and after the IG report it’s clear there’ll be no swamp draining no accountability. People only put up with this BS so long before tuning it out, I know many who have already done so.
    If POTUS wants to win this war he must target directly each agency implicated in this corruption, the DOD cut Stephan Halper’s checks they were involved
    State Dept CIA IRS DOJ FBI.
    Open each agency up for non Russia related corruption declassify Vegas demand public hearings into why the FBI missed this who and what happened when FBI was in Russia hysteria.
    Open up CIA white helmets funding demand an end of the John Brennan reforms hold an audit immediately of our 5 eyes program an audit conducted by CIA critics and former employees
    Hold very public hearings with review of the FISA abuse rulings, a pardon of Assange sends a strong message, open up the coups the State Dept ran with McCain’s international Republican org and the Clinton foundation….
    Open up these agencies lay their corruption bare for all to see and put together a hand picked panel to prosecute outside of DOJ which there is precedent for and put respected classical liberals like Kucinich and Dershowitz along with Ron Paul types and conservatives on that panel. The swamp won’t drain itself Mr President sunlight and actual consequences are the only way.

This may seem crazy, but I wonder whether the “r”s aren’t intentionally tanking American politics, as we know it) I don’t see any viable alternative.

    Just posing the question… Could it be that they are “clearing” the FBI, because they have uncovered evidence that other entities were responsible for the way the investigation was handled? Like, for instance, if they already knew that Obama was responsible through the State Department and AG for essentially ordering the FBI to conduct it a certain way, could they not in essence clear the FBI agents because they were following orders? And because this IG Report only focuses narrowly on whether bias affected the outcome, they are not able to really talk about things outside the scope of this investigation. The particular interchange that leads me to think this was when Cruz was questioning Wray about other investigations and Wray said something like, “no matter how bad I would like to tell you about it I cannot.” Could the problem with this whole set up be due to the narrow scope of the investigation? Could the FBI just be pawns in the whole scheme? I know its wishful thinking, but its just a thought I had after watching the hearings.

This fake crisis in support of human trafficking is demanding Trump enforce the law improperly or even illegally and Trump, once again, directs the public to the law makers who are NOT planning to re-write the law which is at the root of their complaints.

    And while all of this is going on, the law makers are getting increasingly “angry” in front of cameras and threatening to dismantle the FBI and DOJ because of oversight issues. And people are blaming Sessions and Wray for their inaction?

    In the first paragraph, I established a pattern whereby the president is pushing for the proper use of legislative power to make things happen in this country. In the second paragraph, I point out that this seems to fit the same pattern of prompting and encouraging legislators to take the action of cleaning up their own swamp.

    Is IG Horowitz being very literal?

    From the Daily Caller: 01/31/2018 Democrats Cheered An Investigation Into Anti-Clinton Bias At The FBI. It Keeps Finding Pro-Clinton Bias Instead

    Is Horowitz in the summary actually answering the asked question? Was there Anti-Clinton Bias At The FBI ASKED by the DEMOCRATS???

    Of course the answer is there is no bias…. Anti-Clinton Bias that is.

    “Two House Democrats, Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings and Michigan Rep. John Conyers, first requested an IG investigation into the FBI over alleged illegal leaks damaging to Clinton in an Oct. 4 2016 letter.

    Horowitz, an Obama appointee, announced his investigation into the FBI and DOJ’s handling of the Clinton probe four months later in January. Cummings praised Horowitz’s decision at the time, saying the investigation was needed to stave off a “crisis of legitimacy” at the FBI.

    Democratic California Rep. Adam Schiff praised both the investigation in an appearance on MSNBC the same day as Horowitz’s announcement.

    “I think this was very appropriate for the IG to initiate and I say hats off to my colleague Elijah Cummings for making the request for this investigation some months ago, it now has bipartisan support,” Schiff said.

    “We had a very serious and I believe very consequential decision by the director of the FBI to speak publicly about an ongoing investigation and in violation of the department’s longstanding policy and do so right before the election, that ought to be the subject of a DOJ IG investigation, I think they’re the right party to do it, I have every confidence to believe they’ll do it objectively.” […]”

    At the U.S House Committee on The Judiciary they preface the letter:

    Cummings and Conyers Request Investigation of FBI Leaks to Trump Campaign
    Nov 4, 2016

    Washington, D.C. (Nov. 4, 2016)—Today, Rep. Elijah E. Cummings and Rep. John Conyers, Jr., the Ranking Members of the House Committees on Oversight and Government Reform and Judiciary, sent a letter calling on the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Justice to conduct an immediate investigation to determine the source of multiple unauthorized—and often inaccurate—leaks from within the FBI to benefit the presidential campaign of Donald Trump. The full letter is set forth below.[…]”
