    Just in case people are not paying attention to other things, something else has happened today.

    I have to agree with some on this board that Strzok has not cooperated with Horowitz,Huber or anybody else. It’s clear that this guy has not been cowering in some corner fearful when the IG calls for him to testify. That goes for the rest of the rabble involved with this. Preistap,Page,Baker etc.
    Sad that we’re getting a dog & pony show about bias today. I understand that he is not going say anything about ongoing investigations.
    Just looks obvious that ole Pete ain’t scared about meany Horowitz,Huber or any other swamp dweller the DOJ drags out.
    And Sessions is a complete failure as AG.. I would have expected to at least indict Mcabe on a few charges…Hell throw us a bone..we get our MAGA hats thrown off our heads,yelled at,called racists, stupid hillbillies.The SC nominee is somehow going to kill millions.
    Muller is prosecuting who he wants when he wants…has a man in solitary confinement,destroyed a General.

    In recess now. But when they get back, Goodlatte promises Strozk will be asked about the initiation of the Trump investigation.

    Strozk will answer: “Based on instruction of the FBI counsel, I will not respond to those questions as they relate to an ongoing investigation.”

    What a waste.

    I do hope that someone asks Strozk whether he was in London prior to this trip in July, 2016. There has been some suggestion on “Q” that Strozk was in London around December, 2015. If so, why?

      What Ratcliffe so delightfully exposes is that Peter Cotton Tale(Tale=intentional Fraudian slip!) says his personal opinion never influenced his professional actions and yet all those ‘personal opinions’ were stated on an official phone while officially on FBI time during an official ‘professional’ investigation.

      That, my fine feathered political friends(or is that fiends?), is absolute proof of personal, political, and professional bias in an official investigation no matter how you try to spin it !

      But of course, that is only my personal unbiased opinion! But you can’t prove that I have a personal opinion because I’m giving my professional opinion on my personal device and time to my personally favorite political site while professionally spouting political nonsense out of the personal and professional blow hole of my choosing! Makes perfect non politically biased sense, now doesn’t it !?! Otherwise known as personally, politically, and professionally FUBAR!

    Let me get this straight. Hillary went through and deleted 33,000 emails SHE deemed personal and were not a work product.. James Comey leaked memos he wrote about the President that he personally deemed were not a work product. And now Strzok claims he decided personally which of his communications were personal and not a work product. WTF!!!????!!!! It is no coincidence Hillary was never charged. They all get to investigate themselves and get to determine what is “personal” and what is “work product”. Sounds like a convenient way to delete any potential smoking guns that can be used as evidence of their crimes.

    Bill Priestap’s behind closed doors testimony, to date undisclosed, could very well be the lynch pin by which Strzok’s and other’s testimonies are measured by.
    Vigilance, patience and resolve is the key.

        And continuing with that line of thinking, Goodlatte asked Strzok if he would give permission for the remainder of his thoudsands of additional texts messages to be released, he only consented to the release of additional business texts. Goodlatte stated it was impossible to tell the personal ones from the business ones texted on business time/devices. Finally, Peter loudly said he did not consent to the release of them …his countenance revealed his entire guilt of all he did.

        Losong track of some stuff, but I think Goodlatte and/or Gowdy have see those texts, which of course that’s why he pressed Peter with showing the world (and his wife) even more dirt.

    but then states specifically…

    “stop” text was “in response to a series of events that included then-candidate Trump insulting the immigrant family of a fallen war hero and my presumption, based on that horrible, disgusting behavior” that Trump would not be elected.

      Page 404 of IG 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.” [ FootNote 203…SEE BELOW]

      When asked about this text message, Strzok stated that he did not specifically recall sending it, but that he believed that it was intended to reassure Page that Trump would not be elected, not to suggest that he would do something to impact the investigation. Strzok told the OIG that he did not take any steps to try to affect the outcome of the presidential election, in either the Midyear investigation or the Russia investigation. Strzok stated that had he–or the FBI in general–actually wanted to prevent Trump from being elected, they would not have maligned the confidentiality of the investigation into alleged collusion between Russia and members of the Trump campaign in the months before the election.
      Page similarly stated that, although she could not speak to what Strzok meant by that text message, the FBI’s decision to keep the Russia investigation confidential before the election shows that they did not take steps to impact the outcome of the election.

      FOOTNOTE 203:

      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 THERFORE 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 SS devices.

    As I head out to a very important NATO meeting, I see that FBI Lover/Agent Lisa Page is dodging a Subpoena & is refusing to show up and testify. What can she possibly say about her statements and lies. So much corruption on the other side. Where is the Attorney General? @FoxNews

    The only chance in reality to nail these crooks was for the fraudulent illegal FISA spying without having probable cause and withholding info from the Court about the people behind the dossier etc.

    We have to hope Horowitz and Huber do their job and then a grand jury gets seated. Strzok may cooperate if he is facing charges by running this show for McCabe and them to set up Trump.

      sadly, i think you are wrong…the FISA issue and the entire probe of trump comes with a national security exemption–a vague, catch-all term which probably excuses all their conduct — the path to getting them is the HRC email investigation botch—notwithstanding idiotic IG report summary, we gotta show obstruction of justice in the HRC probe (look to ‘best outcome’ text thread etc) and then we can bring in FISA abuse and other russia probe stuff as part of a single conspiracy.

      that is, short of people like mifsud or halper singing and ratting out brennan, obama et al

    The two tiered just-us dept. is no different now than it was under obama, and probably long before that. In a real world, those five pictures that cummings posted would guarantee a get out of jail free card for them, but it wont. Hilly walked, the awans walked, holder walked, etc. There is true evil working in DC, and if sessions claims to be the Christian he is, he would expose it.

    There are many people, good and bad, who would not be shaken by testifying in front of a hostile questioner. Some people rise to the occasion and actually perform better. Strozak might be one of them. If there are ongoing investigations than I understand the look of disdain on the people being questioned. They know they can’t answer most of the questions, the questioners know they can’t answer most of the questioners and they each knows the other knows. Maybe that’s the reason for the smug looks? The criminals know they’re just out there to score brownie points for the good guys AND the bad guys.

          But at that point we had stopped the Nazis. Nuremberg trials were an aftermath of the evil and defeated regime. In our current situation, imo, their arrogance and demeanor are more related to their continuing, untouchable power. Very different.

            Some might think the Nazis on trial shouldn’t have been so smug because they were facing the death penalty. I respect your opinion. My overall point is to not get too upset by people’s faces today. I would love for someone to ask Strzok and Page why anyone would believe anything they say because they happily and for a long time were in the act of cheating on and lying to the one single person on God’s Green Earth who they took a Holy vow before God and witnesses to always be true to … their spouses? They will cheat their husband and wife, but not someone they openly hate?

  49. Purpose of the Mueller probe isn’t to “get Trump”. The purpose is to provide the cover of an “ongoing investigation” to keep the DOJ and FBI from producing the evidence, and to keep the people involved from being compelled to talk. That’s what the “insurance policy” really is.

    I didn’t expect a modicum of truth from an ardent Clanton acolyte. What little of strozker I heard and saw, was just him recanting Wrays and rodentstiens’ blather of ‘the fbi/doj has only the utmost of standards, there is no room or place in my job(s) for political opinion.’
    Yet that is exactly what all three did, and are still doing.
    Point two; Anything involving elijah cummings, is going to be a farce. Another huge embarrassing political contribution from my once beautiful state of Maryland, Cummings sounds like maybe he possesses a fourth or fifth grade education, if that much. Hank johnson or sheerah jasson lee sound more educated than mr. cummings.
    These proceedings are a huge embarrassment to the nation, as all leftist schemes end up being.
    Just another hurdle in the way of righting the ship.
