Apparently the FBI Withheld Strzok and Page Memos/Emails From Inspector General and Congress – Until Now…

Well, this is interesting.  The substance of the latest information is better read by reviewing the presentation of John Solomon [SEE HERE].

The dynamic that catches my interest is how some unknown and unnamed officials inside the FBI apparently kept memos and emails between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok hidden while Inspector General Michael Horowitz was conducting his prior investigation into their conduct during the Clinton email investigation:

[…]  Memos the FBI is now producing to the Department of Justice (DOJ) inspector general and multiple Senate and House committees offer what sources involved in the production, review or investigation describe to me as “damning” or “troubling” evidence.

They show Strzok and his counterintelligence team rushing in the fall of 2016 to find “derogatory” information from informants or a “pretext” to accelerate the probe and get a surveillance warrant on figures tied to the future president. (read more)

The motive for releasing them now seems unfortunately related to the current focus of the IG review which is focused on FISA abuse, and the likelihood the DOJ/FBI constructed an intelligence apparatus to target the Trump campaign: ie. “Spygate“.

CTH selects the word “unfortunately” because in our estimation the FISA investigation is institutionally constructed to go no-where.  The FISA system was/is set up to protect the interests of all government agents and operators who would utilize the surveillance tools.

As the Solomon information infers, the Carter Page FISA Title-1 application, used to gain the most intrusive surveillance authority in the U.S. arsenal, is almost certainly of a sketchy and corrupt construct designed entirely for political exploitation.   However, that said, the opaque FISA rulebook allows, authorizes and permits a group of government officials to engage in almost unlimited activity without oversight or fear of repercussion.

As a consequence; and with the IG report of the Clinton email investigation as a precursor into the parameters of permissibility; the IG FISA review will undoubtedly extend and twist the parameters of allowable FBI conduct, to excuse any form of abuse therein.

If that analysis sounds too cynical, well, consider…. how is the current headline news not demanding buckets of Tar and Feathers based simply on the fact the FBI is only just now turning over these “memos”?

It is what?  ….Ok to have concealed them until now?  …or something.

I digress.

      The Bush administration murdered between 100,000 and 1,000,000 Iraqi civilians over a lie, getting 4000 US soldiers killed, and placing the United States 5 trillion dollars further in debt, leaving Iraq in civil war.

      People in the intelligence community that didn’t “go along to get along” with the phony intelligence were fired en massed in 2005. Guess who was left after that purge? Incompetents, and suckups.

      Treason was normalized over 16 years ago. You awake yet to the consequences?

      The government has been corrupt and INVALID for a long time. Patriot Act was treason. Hell, Homeland Security and TSA is as well. NSA wiretapping the country is blatantly unconstitutional.

      I’m irritated that it took this long to start to wake people up, but I’m eternally grateful that Trump is finally doing it. Better late then never. We’ve been a blatantly fascist nation for over a decade. I don’t want what happened to Germany after WWII happen to the United States, and that’s what the last two traitors in chief were steering us toward. They’re all traitors.

          Look, if you don’t recognize yet that the Obama administration was EXACTLY as corrupt as the Bush Jr. administration, you must have pretty selective blindness.

          The party establishment, of each party, is just a gang of criminals. Dennis Hastert who was the 51st Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, from 1999 to 2007, is an admitted pedophile, who was blackmailed for who knows how long. But don’t worry, Joe Biden is OBVIOUSLY a pedophile.

          Don’t believe naive about what George W. Bush was. He was a criminal as much as Obama or Hillary Clinton are criminals, and they are very huge criminals. Stop supporting the garbage, regardless of what party it is. You know how Prescott Bush made his fortune? He provided banking services for the Nazis. You know how Joe Kennedy made his money? He was a mafia gangster running run during prohibition.

          The sooner people just grow up, the faster we can throw these criminal family gangs out of power – but if you refuse to, well, your children will suffer because your inability to accept something we all need to accept, the truth.

          Finally, do you know what the economic system of fascism is? It’s when the government is run for the benefit of CORPORATIONS, and not the people of the nation. Certain favored corporations that control the government get perks like, being bailed out with tax payer money when they go bankrupt (like what was done with TARP and QE), and these corporations also enjoy being above the law, like our entire banking system and Monsanto are.

          I don’t like fascism, don’t defend what this nation has become. In the late 1980s and early 1990’s, the federal government put over 1000 criminal banker scum in jail for the Savings and Loan Scandal.. Well, between then and 2007, the US went full fascist. If you continue to deny there’s a problem, that’s just allowing the problem to continue to exist.

          I do not use the term fascist lightly either. But that’s exactly what the federal government has been since at least George W. Bush – not that Slick Willy didn’t give it a good push in that direction, along with probably George H. Bush. You better recognize the problem, everybody better, or your kids and grandkids are doomed to be just cattle because you refuse to see the problem. This is not the country of my father, or grandfather. My great uncle fought in WWII to defeat the Nazis, if you people persist in just ignoring the elephant in the room, that was a complete waste of time for him.

                  There was a time, not so very long ago, when I refused to believe that. When I was a very young soldier, I heard older, Vietnam vets talk about their experiences with MACV and Air America, and that some of their ops were against sophisticated drug gangs – not to interrupt the drug trade out of SE Asia, but to eliminate the competition of “preferred” drug lords over others, at the behest of the CIA. I didn’t want to believe them, either. Just loose talk, especially after getting “lubed up” real good. But, the situation today is very simply a terrible truth being ignored openly by nearly everyone. There is just no excuse other than the obvious – we allow Afghan drug lords to grow, produce, and distribute opium out of Afghanistan to buy their support in the War on Terror. Of course, some of “our” people are taking advantage of the situation for personal gain as well. Again, the only word that most adequately applies, in my opinion, is – sickening.

            While I do believe that warmongering is an uber lucrative business, and I do believe Bush 43 was complicit in advancing a lot of fine sounding and patriotic rhetoric to persuade Americans to sacrifice blood and treasure for a war that was so unnecessary, I do not believe “Bush” was the cause of the wars. He was a mouthpiece for much higher powers. Ditto Obummer- a sock puppet.

            I don’t believe your numbers are accurate. 1,000,000 dead? 1000 bankers? C’mon man! Big round numbers are more emphatic than accurate.

        I’m sorry but I get so sick of people repeating this absolute FALSE statement that no WMDs were found. As someone who spent seven years fighting in Iraq at the tip of the spear from early on and then rotated over to AFG after Iraq closed down, there were WMDs pulled out of Iraq. I KNOW. This isn’t even debatable. They were found and shipped out.

        Where people quibble is at what stage, the amounts, the types, etc but there WERE WMDs that were found in multiple areas. H*LL, we even know prior to our entry in 2003 that Saddam used them against both the Kurds and Shia, so why are we even questioning this fact. I served with Kurds whose families were killed by Saddam with WMDs.

        Now all the other issues regarding W Bush, I think myself and many others who served proudly over there have awakened about motives. I am proud of my service in Iraq and do not regret any of it and all the villagers were freed from both Saddam and later JTJ, ISI, AQI, Ansar al Sunna, JRTN, Jaysh al Mahdi – Muqtada al Sadr’s group…

          If people want to White Knights for someone oppressed in a country, they should do it on their own dime. President Trump has rightly condemned Iraq as a stupid idea.

        Great post. The patriot act was indeed treason. It was sitting on Bill Clinton’s desk in the oval office months before the 9/11 false flag operation.which murdered over 3000 Americans in New York that day and led to the deaths of over 4000 in Iraq as you rightly say.

        The patriot act was signed with blank pages still in it waiting to be written after ratification.
        That’s a capital offence right there for all who signed the bill into law.
        Such an act of treason calls for the death sentence to protect the republic from the fifth columnists in your capitol.

        Trump is a billion times better than Felonia von Pantsuit would have been, but he is a drinking straw trying to empty a swamp that’s ocean wide and deep which is ONLY interested in maintaining the bought and paid for status quo flow of trillions of dollars of your and your children’s money and new debt accrued on your tab via an OWNED government. As Sundance has said, trillions are at stake. Think that will be given up easily?

    • As I have said elsewhere, an important fact to keep in mind when assessing this situation is to remember that the entire operation was executed by LEO and lawyers who, in general, know the law.

      My view — until new evidence indicates otherwise — is that none of the perpetrators of this attempted coup actually broke the law. They went right up to the edge of it, but never crossed it.

      For example, the FISA application did have a footnote noting some aspects of the provenance of the information included in the request for a warrant. This could insulate the perpetrators from criminal sanctions with regard to their actions in the FISC in a normal court.

      I’m not saying that the perpetrators are going to avoid punishment only that I think the likelihood is low of there being criminal indictments arising from their behavior.

      The behavior of the Obama DOJ/FBI is unprecedented and it’s possible that there are no specific criminal statutes that exist to prosecute this behavior other than treason, a charge which is rarely pursued.

      At this point in the process of investigating this enterprise, what appears to be going on is dragging the perpetrators into the public eye, embarrassing them and, in some cases, firing them (or forcing them to ‘retire’) for violations of DOJ/FBI rules.

      There are, no doubt, individuals within the FBI/DOJ who are seeking to minimize the impact of what went on in the DOJ/FBI under Obama and would like the entire affair to just go away. However, I also think there are individuals within the FBI/DOJ who realize the reputation of the DOJ/FBI has been seriously undermined and that some kind of public reckoning is required to begin the process of restoring trust in the these institutions.

    I always thought that the review of the Clinton investigation wouldn’t go anywhere in terms of criminality for the FBI, because they could always argue prosecutorial discretion. On the other hand, trying to frame people for a crime they didn’t commit cannot be brushed away nearly as easily. Many crimes were likely committed in trying to frame Trump and his associates. I think Horowitz is saving the best for last.

      I’m live and work in Silicon Valley as an electrical engineer. People who believe this BS really believe this BS. They think only Fox News lies, but not their precious NY Times, or MSNBC, or CBS, and certainly not the late night comedians.

      These are, actually, well educated, smart individuals, who are too busy to do critical thinking about what they are told is “news”. They are 100% confident in their intelligence, and being “informed”. When this is revealed to be a fraud carried about by the intelligence agencies, our “news”, our “entertainment”, etc – it’s going to be devastating to them. They will be in further disbelief than they were when I walked into the office on November 8th, 2016 – trying to suppress a smile.

      You have to remember, people in white collar technical jobs learn not by going through the painstaking process of actually proving everything they are taught, they are just taught, and in the course of their later life, they do realize everything they were taught was correct, because, after all, it works.

            I researched it heavily and never found a published account.

            There was a lot of speculation on blogs that that’s what happened.

            Never a published news story nor even “sources close to yada yada in a position to know yada yada” embroidering.

            The best I could trace was most stories seemed to trace back to a facebook post.

            I inquired personally with two people whose names were mentioned in relation to that post.
            Neither was the original writer of the narrative, they “shared” something someone else posted.

                You could well have gotten that idea right here. There was a large amount of that kind of writing here. Some of the writing here pulled in accounts from other blogs.

                Just never a citable source that I could find. Nothing that rose above blog discussions, where one needs a critical eye to discern “ok, it this a published and citable account?” or is it someone just engaging in creative writing in a vein of “here’s how I think it went” or “this is what usually happens in this kind of situation”.

                I never found a citable account of “Comey’s office was secured and contents removed”.

                Not even leaks about that, for example from liberal or Comey-favoring receptionists or other office workers, office scuttlebutt. Nothing.

                So it’s a narrow point I’m making, my interest is that certain myths don’t get enshrined as “common knowledge” here and become “known knowns”, as a former Sec of Defense used to say.

              McCabe testified on May 11th & was asked about Comey’s files. According to his testimony I would say there was not a raid.
              ————————————————————————————————————–
              HARRIS: And when Director Comey was fired, my understanding is he was not present in his office. He was actually in California. So my question is: Who was in charge of securing his files and devices when that — when that information came down that he had been fired?

              MCCABE: That’s our responsibility, ma’am.

              HARRIS: And are you confident that his files and his devices have been secured in a way that we can maintain whatever information or evidence he has in connection with the investigation?

              MCCABE: Yes, ma’am. I am.

                The discussion was started by psadie, who posted an article by Kevin Jackson at his Blacksphere blog. His article recounts a facebook narrative of Comey’s office seizure.

                He cites a name “Mark Howard Lewis” and a link to the facebook post that no longer works. At the time, I emailed Kevin Jackson and don’t think I got a reply.

                https://theblacksphere.net/2017/06/president-trumps-strategic-firing-swamp-rat-james-comey/

                From the article:

                Notice that the President fired Comey when Comey was 3,000 miles away from his office.

                Comey had no inkling he was being cut, and that all his files, computers, and everything in his office were seized by his boss Sessions and the justice department. This was not a violation of protocol, it was tactical. Notice how Prez Trump compartmentalized the strike and did not inform any of his White House “staff” to prevent leaks. Notice how he emasculated Comey and the swamp denizens by letting them know in a tweet that the Attorney General got information (surveillance “tapes” from the seizure of Comey’s office) to let Comey and his handlers know that Trump’s DOJ has the goods on them. This was a brilliant, strategic, and totally imperative move at exactly the right time against horrible, evil and corrupt powers infesting our government.

                That’s a nice tale, but it’s not sourceable beyond “a facebook post” and it’s contradicted by McCabe’s testimony to Congress that FBI would have secured Comey’s files. Not DOJ or “Sessions and the justice department”.

            It’s a balancing act. One side wants Trump to desist from exposing them and blowing the cover off. Their threat is to remove or neuter Trump’s presidency – which we knows he won’t do for a Pyrrhic victory. He can’t MAGA if he breaks his presidency on fighting the entire system. That might come later when he has little time left in his presidency.

            Trump consistently says that he has been advised to stay clear of the investigation. He always says he reserves the right to get involved. But, being they accused him of obstruction and other things for very little to nothing staying away is probably the best. There are players that are doing what they can to move the ball forward. I’ll take what I can. At this point, the more it goes on in public view the more it is apparent that the deck is stacked against all of us. Realizing this is beneficial because it makes it possible to move in new ways.

            What we have found out is Trump is brilliant at being president and they can’t stop that. Someone said elsewhere that Trump formed a direct bond to his supporters. A strong bond that has showed it won’t break. The media didn’t make him, so they can’t break him. The only thing that can do that is if we lose faith in him. Look instead to the positives that Trump is doing and not the Sisyphean task of draining the swamp. The swamp is draining or, at the very least, it isn’t getting deeper. The Swamp draining will come in bits and pieces as Trump alters everything he touches.

            • I agree. I think POTUS’s behavior is the result of a balancing act. He wants the ‘bad apples’ to get removed from the barrel, but he also doesn’t want to crash the system.

              Like you, I now foresee the entire anti-corruption enterprise being exposed and dismantled in ‘bits and pieces’ leading up to climax of very important figures being put into the docket of public opinion.

              I don’t know if there will be many indictments, but my suspicion is that, ultimately, the DOJ/FBI/CI/FISC will never be the same again.

            In 1987 he registered as a Republican but before that party affiliations we’re not recorded. He’s said:
            “I was from an area that was all Democrat. And, frankly, over the years, I have — and especially as I have gotten more and more involved — I have evolved.”

            Since 1987 he changed his party 5 times. For a short time he registered independent and from (roughly) 2000-2010 he was democrat. Then independent and 2012 republican.

            So, I was commenting about his life living in a democrat area and being registered as one for a period of time – so from public perception. Not about his personal political opinions – which he admits have evolved.

I was raised a democrat until my parents caught on and they became republicans and this back in the early 1960’s.

And it wasn’t too long ago, that Democrats like Congresswoman Barbara Jordan were concerned about illegal immigration and the harm it was doing to wages in low-income communities. No one dared call her a racist for pointing this out.

          Trump bravely and correctly called out Bush for the debacle in Iraq. That doesn’t make him a Democrat, just a common-sense American who wasn’t bamboozled by the baloney put out by the Uniparty’s government and MSM.

          Trump’s greatest enemies are the Bush Republicans and neoconservatives, who co-opted the conservative movement as well as the Democrats under Billy Clinton. NeoCons have hollowed out both parties with their Trotskyite beliefs and tactics.

          Trump has a heart for everyday people that is contagious. His passion for making the country better for everyone is catching people’s attention and showing us a way out of the phony left vs. right game. Too much winning going on to give up now. We’re not going back.

In that letter, Page supposedly offered to meet with Comey to discuss the questions. (this is a claim Page himself made in a radio interview.) If I’m remembering correctly, a FISA warrant is considered a sort of last resort- granted only when the requesting agency has no other way of gathering the information. If the target had offered to come in to speak with the Director of the FBI less than a month before the warrant was authorized, how could they say they had no other way of gathering the information?

    Time for congress and President Trump to demand a special prosecutor to investigate corruption in the FBI and Justice Departments.

    Put former Milwaukee Co Sheriff David Clark in charge off creating an investigative Task Force, selecting investigators to include retired/former distinguished FBI(none of which come from DC, the district of corruption) and to include proven, experienced, state, county, and city detectives as well as military investigators.

    Use the US Marshals for executing warrants, and making physical arrests once warrants have been issued.

    Add a few former prosecutors for legal input.

    Have them report directly to the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. The CJ reviews and signs all, warrants, subpoenas, and arrest warrants so NOTHING IS LEAKED by FBI/Justice crooks.

    Instead of a grand jury, present evidence to the Chief Justice, who then decides when there is probable cause to indict.

    If this isn’t currently legal have congress pass emergency legislation.

    Lord, I hate to say this. But I have been feeling quite despondent lately on the course our country is taking. The liberal fiends are brainwashed by a culpable, complicit media, who feel it is their job to make sure the elected President is damaged in any way possible.

    Violent rhetoric is now commonplace. Vulgarity is now the norm on ‘comedy’ shows. Assaults are now rising (the latest being a 16 y/o boy with a MAGA hat having his hat grabbed from his head and a drink thrown into his face), and a Congresswoman named Waters feels bold enough to get on national TV to encourage hate and contempt for the opposing side. Of course, we know she also means to attack the voters, right?

    Is this now where the US of A disintegrates into a Balkanized country? The Right, the Left, the Independents? What?

    I wish I had a solution. I don’t. Congress is defanged; no one really has the guts to get up and organize to stop the madness. People are enraged. Our children are listening and watching.

    Pray. When your back is against the wall… Pray.

    Direct them to employ the 2-hops method to ensnare Campaign Teams, Donors, Staff, Lobbyists, Attorneys, Judges and anyone associated with NGOs that participate in or are referenced (directly or through their organizations or common associations) in any communications, as was the practice by the Obama Administration and SC Mueller’s Investigation.

    For those around who think that this is all “something new” … FACT: All good fiction is usually based on, and has to rely upon, just enough truth for it to be enjoyable, and believable. All writers know this, and it has been proven time, and time again, throughout history. Things written about today, are based on facts, some historical, some secret, some known, some unknown to the regular public. Point in case are the novels of Tom Clancy. His stories were based deeply in facts – unknown to most people – but facts nonetheless. The government has actually admitted that many of the things from his earliest novels were true! Clancy is known, among the literary world, to have had “great sources” of information. Both from his own experiences, and those he met and worked with, in his life prior to becoming a “well known writer”. Ever wonder what he did BEFORE? Check him out! IMHO he did not just die, but was targeted because he had found out, and was going to bring to light, something that simply “could not be allowed” to be released in any way. He had to go.

    With this in mind, might I suggest reading a book by Dean Koontz, copyrighted in 1994. Read, and enjoy this fictional (is it really just fiction?) story entitled “Dark Rivers of the Heart”. Admittedly, not his best work IMHO, but well written. Pay particular attention to the unknown, but very versatile, ‘super black agency’ contained therein. Again, IMHO, Koontz HAD to know ‘something’ when he wrote it in 1994! Because more, and more, we are SEEING IT HAPPEN today, all around us. We are seeing these very things happening in real life – TODAY – 24 years after he wrote a fictional story about them. Think about it …

      The SCOTUS appointments should cheer us up as well as his deregulation efforts. However, the economic growth we see is almost ENTIRELY due to business OPTIMISM after his election, NOT the actual monetary effects of his policies. This was clearly revealed in a newsletter from a local business explaining why they were expanding and why commercial properties were virtually impossible to find. Under BHO, businesses didn’t know what to expect other than whatever came from the FedGov would be BAD for business.

      However, underlying the recovery is 23 TRILLION dollars in debt which led to the current “everything bubble” instead of just a “housing bubble” as before and the Fed is now trying to “unwind” its balance sheet which is like walking on a razor’s edge. The average new home price vs average hourly wage is now 30% HIGHER than it was at the PEAK of the housing bubble. When that “everything bubble” pops as ALL bubbles ALWAYS do it WILL be blamed exclusively on Trump and far too many will be ignorant enough to believe it.

  35. I think we are getting to the point as conservatives where we can’t distinguish fantasy from reality due to the rampant corruption in our government. It becomes mind-numbing when lies and deception appear to be universal from politicians. We need to step back and separate facts from accusations and innuendo. The first thing to understand is that most politicians are drawn to their calling because they are narcissists and have a psychopathy toward control of others. Once this is understood, it becomes obvious that they are painting reality to fit their agenda, which is always self-serving. What serves our interests? Jobs, increased income, reduced taxes, order and peace. We do not need anything else, other than freedom to accomplish our personal goals. Who is working to provide these interests? A non-politician who does not need more power or money. Enough said.

Conceptual thinkers with extreme abstract thinking skills. That’s where to look. This must be some Intelligence program.

  42. Now that Donald Trump is President, and with new powers granted Inspectors General under a 2016 law championed by Republican House members, Inspector General Michael Horowitz has says his ability to access records from the DOJ and FBI has changed from night to day.

    The new law “has greatly enhanced our ability to conduct oversight, and I’m not aware of any IG facing legal impediments,” he says. But still he complains about timeliness and “foot-dragging by agencies that delays work.” Hello, FBI!

    Horowitz continues to lobby for IGs to have “testimonial subpoena” power to compel former employees and contractors to testify. Too often, “department employees conveniently retire on the eve of when we want to ask them questions,” Horowitz said, which puts them out of reach.

    Inability to question former federal employees has substantially hampered audits, investigations, and other reviews into matters within the scope of that individual’s responsibilities. The original bill that emerged Republican-controlled House including an enabling provision, but the Democrat-controlled Senate stripped it from the version that ultimately was signed into law.

    During the Obama Administration, Department of Justice and FBI bureaucrats systematically usurped Horowitz’s authority to conduct investigations. Clearly, any probes into the handling of the Hillary Clinton Email “Matter,” or corruption within the DOJ and FBI, were going to be non-starters so long as “By the Book” Obama was President.

    Should the unthinkable happen and Donald Trump become President, the mass exodus of Obama appointees would put them beyond the reach of any investigation Horowitz might eventually launch.
    But not necessarily beyond the reach of criminal prosecutions that US Attorney John Huber and his team will conduct.

    Action by Congressional Republicans made it possible for IG Horowitz to aggressively do his job, and he is leaving no stone unturned within the scope of his authority over the DOJ and FBI. One hand washes the other.

    The enemedia told us Trump would make it MORE DIFFICULT for IG Horowitz and his peers to do their jobs, when they KNEW nothing could be further from the truth. In retrospect, Horowitz’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee in August 2015 is illuminating. Here are some excerpts:

    “On July 20, 2015, the DOJ Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) issued its opinion, which concludes that Section 6(a) of the IG Act does not entitle the DOJ-OIG to obtain independent access to grand jury, wiretap, and credit information in the Department’s possession that is necessary for us to perform oversight of the FBI and other Department components. Indeed, the OLC opinion concludes that such records can only be obtained by the OIG in certain – but not all – circumstances through disclosure exceptions in specific laws related to those records.

    “As a result, the OLC opinion provides that, in all instances, Department employees will decide whether access by the DOJ-OIG is warranted – placing agency staff in the position of deciding whether to grant the Inspector General access to information necessary to conduct our oversight. Requiring an Inspector General to obtain permission from agency staff in order to access agency information turns the principle of independent oversight that is contained within the IG Act on its head …

    “The OLC opinion will not only negatively impact the oversight work of the DOJ-OIG, but has the potential to adversely affect the entire Inspector General community. A hallmark of the IG Act – independent access by Inspectors General to all information in an agency’s possession that is necessary for our oversight work – has been pierced.

    “For the first time since the IG Act was passed in 1978, the lawyers for the Executive Branch have concluded that ‘all’ in Section 6(a) of the IG Act does not mean ‘all.’ As a result, the Inspector General community is concerned that the OLC opinion could lead to agencies objecting to the production to Inspectors General of other categories of records that are subject to non-disclosure provisions. Indeed, we understand that preliminary research has found that there are over 1,000 laws that contain disclosure restrictions in them.

    “As noted above, the FBI has already identified at least ten other categories of information that it has stated it may not be able to produce to the DOJ-OIG because of access restrictions in those laws. These include: FISA Information, Attorney-Client Information, Patient Medical Information, Bank Secrecy Act Information, Federal Juvenile Court Records, Information Subject to Non-Disclosure Agreements and Memoranda of Understanding, and Source Information.

    “Additionally, the OLC opinion creates potential ambiguity and uncertainty as to what information witnesses and agency personnel can provide to Inspectors General conducting oversight, possibly resulting in their becoming less forthcoming and fearful of being accused of improperly divulging information. Such a shift in mindset could deter whistleblowers from directly providing information to Inspectors General about waste, fraud, abuse, or mismanagement because of concern that the agency may later claim that the disclosure was improper and use that decision to retaliate against the whistleblower.”

  43. Before becoming negative and upset, filter everything through this fact;
    Bill Priestap head of FBI Counter Intel is still in his job. Ask yourself what that means? Would he be in the role if he broke any laws or FBI Regs? Would he be in the role if he was completely unaware of events around him and involving his subordinates? Ask yourself what this means.

    It means Priestap did everything required, followed the rules and regs and showed clearly he was not involved in any violations. With regards to what was happening around him and involving his subordinates, well logic dictates he must have had complete situational awareness. It’s such a sensitive and vital role in terms of Natsec do you think they would leave a bozo who had no idea in the position?

    Following on logically Priestap knew what was happening, he had a counter intel op going on which was based on fake intel funnelled in from various sources including the CIA. What to do? Clearly he followed protocol and chain of command. Otherwize he’s have been fired. Obviously Priestap acted appropriately and acted in a timely manner. What could that involve?

    My theory, when Priestap found out what was happening he reported to someone, I think Comey because he already knew McCabes position. They collectively decided not to shut down the Counter Intel Investigation but to launch another (classified) counter Intel probe to surveil and shadow the first one. It is this counter intel probe (classified) that Mueller has taken over, that was never investigating Trump and is the reason for reluctance to hand over papers. This counter Intel probe is not yet complete, in particular going back to sources of the fake intel and White Hpouse involvement.

    Even if my theory is wrong, the fact is Priestap is still in the role. Ask yourself logically how this could be and what must he have done and not done to remain.
