Sunday Talks: Maria Bartiromo Interviews Darrell Issa on Multiple Subjects…

The overwhelming majority of Sunday political talk-show discussion focuses around the death of UniParty Senator John McCain, etc.  There is little value there, and grandma’s rule always applies.

However, Representative Darrell Issa appeared on Sunday Morning with Maria Bartiromo for a discussion on multiple subjects including the DOJ, Robert Mueller, North Korea and ongoing trade reset initiatives with China.

      The American public?

      When this all blows, the fallout will be earth shaking and life altering.

      As Sharon once said – those who know aren’t talking and those who are taliking have no idea.

      I can speculate and hypothesize until the cows come home, but I do know this – life altering 👍

      Pray for America 🙏🏼

      They can’t release the unredacted items until the investigations by IOG, Huber, and the other Grand Juries of the persons named in those redactions are complete.

      Some of those named will end up being members of the very committees who are demanding the unredacted documents. BOTH parties, I might add!

      Once the investigations are completed and the Grand Juries have made their determinations, THEN they can be released.

          True, but congressional committees and only investigate for showboating and to “inform the public”. They have no prosecutorial power!

          Thus the DOJ must keep their powder dry, and make every shot count!

          The Silent Executioner is lining the up, and is readying his hammer!

          I trust it will be glorious!

          The IOG must report on FISA first, then Trump/Sessions can release the unredacted Application. After that, the Lisa Page testimony to confirm the conclusions.

          No indictments until AFTER the midterms, to avoid complaints of “election interference”, but shortly thereafter.

          I hope we will have much to be thankful for! A Red Wave, if not a Red Tsunami! And the corruptocrats being brought to the bar of justice!!

    No, Rep. Issa, Rod Rosenstein does not have to give SC Mueller special instructions dealing with FISC/FISA. Robert Mueller needs to wrap things up and go away. All he is proven is that he and his team are political hacks lacking the responsibility of using their vast prosecutorial powers ethically.

      The President should haul Rosie over to the Oval Office, hand him a list of directives regarding the Mueller case. Short, simple to the point:

      1. Mueller has one month to submit a report of his findings. Just as the IG’s report was submitted to the principles first, before the public could see it, Mueller’s report must also be given to the President’s attorneys and to Rosenstein (Sorry, Mr. AG, you don’t get to see it until the media does. It’s a recusal thing.). Mueller must be held accountable should any leaks or breaches of terms occur. If contents of the report are leaked before the agreed upon date for media release, that will be grounds for immediate dismissal of parties involved and Mueller.

      2. Mueller is blocked from hiring any further investigators, attorneys or staff.

      3. Mueller is informed there will be no further funding for his activities after October 1, 2018. If he chooses to continue his special counsel activities, he must seek funding from a source outside the federal govt–no further tax dollars will be spent for any reason including salaries, staff and all other associated expenses. If he does obtain private sector funding, he must appeal to Rosenstein for approval first and Rosenstein must obtain approval from Congress and the Executive Branch.

      If Rosenstein refuses to comply, fire him on the spot. If he does comply, call him back in on October 1st and give him the option of resigning or being fired. Let the damage he’s done also come to quick closure.

    Imo the mueller probe lost credibility more than a year ago by not going after clinton et al for KNOWN crimes by hrc’s own admission and instead going after POTUS and his campaign members on a fishing expedition looking for a crime, ANY crime, to bring down this administration while it ignores the long list of crimes committed by the previous administration.

    The end result is a bill to US taxpayers to the tune of $25 MILLION and climbing at a rate of $1.5 MILLION PER MONTH for previously exonerated tax issues that are more than a decade old against a short term campaign manager, a plea deal for an attorney that is about to be disbarred, a ‘hookers on parade’ issue for nuisance payments to women with beyond questionable character who might have allegedly had affairs with POTUS several years before any announcement he would run for office, a dozen indictments against college aged kids in another country that have no way to afford to defend themselves and not subject to extradition, three companies one of whom did not even exist at the time the alleged offenses took place, and some foreign intel officers from another country that will never appear in court.

    The entire scenario is beyond ludicrous. It’s a waste of time, waste of money, and a waste of air as well as being perpetrated by individuals that have become completely unhinged in pursuit of their political agenda.

      My way of looking at it is that bringing down Trump is a side benefit to the actual mission which is to ensure that Hillary remains free of any responsibility for wrongdoing. The reason for this is simply to keep Obama out of the fray. Any serious investigation will implicate the Obama White House as the actual center of the illegal efforts to eliminate the possibility of Clinton losing the election.

Nervous, eyes darting around, I’ve seen so many people like that in my life who just bit off more than they can chew. Sessions did fine as a member of the Senate. He’s not an alpha. He’s not comfortable leading. He doesn’t recognize the rats and weasels around him as rats and weasels. Rosenstein is running rings around him. He should be fired the same day. Chris Wray should be fired that same day. Easy to fix. All the AG would have to do is say anybody redacting non-essential information, instant demotion. 48 hours to produce documents. Failure to comply, instant demotion. Somebody’s got to get tough. Mueller’s operation is totally rogue and has been from the beginning. It needs to end. By whatever mechanism does the job. American can never be great when the DOJ and FBI are this corrupt. Everybody was worried about a trade war? This is just as big. We the People have to go to war with the embeds in the Department of Justice. Yank them out by the roots. I think our President knows this. He find it distasteful, but he.’s man enough for the job.

      Forget about demotion. At the level of the people who are stonewalling, why should they be allowed to be demoted for insubordination. That still allows them to receive a government paycheck and ultimately receive a pension. Not a bad deal for someone who isn’t doing their job.

      Fire their butts, take away their pensions, and if warranted, carry out an appropriate judicial proceeding. If found guilty, give them a YUGE amount of prison time or a 10 foot drop on a rope snapped taut at the other end.

        Unfortunately, it is no simple matter to take away a federal pension; McCabe, for example, by firing for cause merely lost the right to take his pension early, at age 50; even conviction in court for misconduct in office does not lead automatically to loss of the pension. Incredible, but true; obviously, it needs to change.

          Just my opinion, but I think it -should- be difficult to take away a pension, federal or otherwise.

          That pension is essentially part of a person’s salary for work already performed.

          So I don’t see a difference between taking a pension, and going in and taking several hundred thousand from your savings account.

          If, McCabe were to be properly charged and convicted, the criminal penalties facing him would make his pension the very least of his worries.

            Their actions undermine our nation’s security, and international credibility. The achievements made, under such unprecented duress, by President Trump’s economic and foreign policy team are truly amazing.

          The concern was, ironically, the political part of the executive POLITICISING the career employees, by firing them and replacing them with political hacks, or threatening them with firing, loss of benefits, in order to get them to do what the political appointees wanted them to do.

          Hence they put in place rules INTENDED to ‘shield ‘the career employees. Unfortunately, the globalists figured ways around it, by a variety of means.

      Another point, though I certainly agree with your perspective of how pervasive the bad guys are in the DOJ/FBI (add IRS, VA, EPA, etc.) – the public sector – government bureaucracy is quite entrenched, and there are massive regulations in place intended to protect employees. I’m not saying it can’t be done, but it’s a huge problem and cannot be accomplished as quickly as we’d like.

      It’s also why we’re hearing remarks from POTUS regarding an “overall” of the government employee system. I suspect this all connects.

    Unfortunately, other than discussing AG Sessions in some detail , the other subjects were barely touched upon. I noticed that as soon as the subject of the conflicted DAG (Rod Rosenstein’s signing of the one FISA document as well as overseeing the SC), the subject quickly changed to something else.

        Surely you Geste, as Congress, the neutered and bought and paid for quislings, who have forgone their constitutional responsibilities for personal greed and gain, “should immediately” do a lot of things, but they are not going to, the G-D rat-bastards!

          robin…you are precisely correct. With the likes of Paul Ryan leading the pack our Congressmen are nothing more than latrine attendants. Why is this creepy PR still in office. He should have been made to “leave the room” the minute he told the public that he will not be running again but stood his ground as speaker. Did he not say he will not run in his state election but failed to mention that he is free to run again as the speaker? Am I correct in saying that one need not be in congress in order to be speaker? Was I dreaming or not.

    Amazing how Trump has single handedly changed the terms of the economic debate with China. Now everyone sees North Korea is but a foil and puppet. You know, just so obvious all along. He’s even got the media, stating it as if that is old news, everyone knew that. What a President.

    I find it fascinating that no one….including Sundance…..has ever focused on the question which Maria asked Issa (but he didn’t answer it and neither has PDJT ftm)…..

    If AG Sessions is truly a problem and NOT working with the WH, why hasn’t POTUS simply declassified the relevant docs that would thoroughly expose the “Big Ugly”? As Maria asked, what is the downside risk??

    A: because the timing is not right.

    Why isn’t the timing right?

    A: because the drip drip drip 💧of information is tantalizing and makes people want MORE. It captures their attention while allowing them to ingest a VERY complicated and detailed matter in bits and pieces (which Sundance HAS discussed in the past as a very necessary thing).

    And…..if ^^^^this^^^^ is true, then it is clear POTUS does not WANT Sessions to act, but instead wants the drip drip drip process to play out in full.

    Angry, upset voters go to the polls. Satiated, happy voters don’t. And it is a sad fact that most swing voters are idiots. These are the people who need to see the drip drip drip exposure of the corruption in DC and get angry enough to #WalkAway from the left and deliver a voter mandate to PDJT this Nov.

    POTUS knows this. And THAT is why he isn’t declassifying anything. And until he DOES declassify info that Sessions could release himself, no one can credibly say AG Sessions isn’t working closely with PDJT.

    Reread that.

    I think Sessions’ tweet to the president last week showed very well why the president is hesitant to release the documents.

    Sessions made clear that he believes he is acting in an above partisan manner. Reverse that and it means he believes releasing the documents would be partisan, which accusations will be dumped directly on the president if he releases them —- so no wonder PDJT wants to avoid that storm.

    It is rather vile of Sessions to force the president to release the documents so Sessions can keep polishing his own holier than thou halo.

      So you’re saying that the political weaponization of the various and powerful Depts of gov’t is ok and depts like the DoJ should be used to criminalize policy differences or pursue political revenge?

      Here’s another question folks like you don’t ever seem to want to answer….

      If the political weaponization of the depts of fed gov’t and criminalization of policy differences has become a problem (and it is), just how do you expect AG Sessions to restore non-partisan credibility to the DoJ while doing what people like you want him to do??

      Remember, it’s not YOU or us Treepers who needs convincing, it’s all the swing voters who would and will vote democrat if they think Sessions is acting like a partisan hack.

        I don’t accept your and evidently Sessions premise that releasing the documents is partisan hackery. I believe it is playing FAIR even though the fake news will scream and holler otherwise.

            And the media (who blows in the ears of all of those needing to be convinced) is also an enemy; so our president and AG need to be very conscientious and deliberate whenever they make a move.
            We took a young couple out for dinner last Thursday evening. Her husband gets it. She does not. I tried explaining reality to her and finally told her that she needs to quit watching the news and instead just take note of what our president is doing day to day. I think I finally convinced her that our president is fighting with everything he has for us and our country and why should the other side be mad about the good things that he has done for this country? I started ticking all of the good off to her, even mentioning prison reform and how he even cares for the incarcerated enough to help them get their lives turned around. I told her, that these prisoners are getting out of prison regardless of whether our president does things to help them regain their dignity and start their lives over in productive ways or not. So this is a win-win situation for all (a new start for them and less crime for society). I think that was the thing that finally hit home with her because her husband is a county jailer and comes home every day with stories of what he encounters.
            I just read something today that said the biggest enemy our president faces is the media, I believe that to be true. We need to get out there and be his media.

          Kitty, I’m not sure that Sessions can be involved in releasing documents pertaining to the Dossier, etc. All of that is connected to the 2016 Election. He is recused. POTUS has the power, and ForGodandCountry puts forth a plausible theory or at least discussion on this. For me, it isn’t about Sessions, it’s about POTUS, and his tweets have been ramping up, naming names and issues which had been quiet for awhile.

    • Republicans, like Sessions, who act in a non-partisan manner always support the Dims in their agenda. It never happens the other way around. Dims never have to give up anything. We never clean house at DOJ but dims put their people in and select an AG who has the president’s back.

      @ Kitkat…………..Trump won’t release the documents until he has a 5-4 SCOTUS majority. He’s waiting for Kavanaugh’s confirmation, Because when he releases it, or tries to, activists judges will block it all the way up to the Supreme Court. I doubt sessions has anything to do with this except pick up his pink slip after Kavanaugh is seated. IMHO.

    Good — arguments are changing slightly, to get (1) Sessions moving and (2) to get to business prosecuting HRC et al. For instance, this stupid Weiner laptop, it now turns out that it carried 694,000 HRC emails but only a small fraction got analyzed by Superagent Strzok. Now, HRC was Secretary of State for 1473 days. That huge number of emails means she had about 20 emails per hour every day, all day from Jan. 21, 2009 until Feb. 1, 2013, 24/7. Who uses email that much? It seems unusual to me. Nobody has a good explanation of why she had so many emails coming and going.

      The wiener laptop has a file, reortedly labeled “Insurance Policy”. It appears, from descriptions of its contents, that it was an insurance policy against arkanticide. It has material from BlackBerry texts, emails, from a variety of different sources, over many years that June was Hillary’s body girl.

      All sorts of incriminating stuff from before, during and maybe even after SOS tenure. That’s why the # is so big. Might even contain blackmail material Hillary had on others.

  26. Dims are criminalizing politics and going after Trump and his family and friends. The only way to stop this is for Trump to get an aggressive AG and turn the tables on the Dims by going after them. Once they see what is happening they will stop. If there are no consequences for them, they will keep doing it.

    What I fail to see here is that the AG is supposed to be the protectorate of not only the law, but the Presidency as an institution.
    When JFK was elected the Elites in NY hated his guts because he was not “one of them” and “no real class” so they started this nonsense of investigations again all the Kennedy holding, well we know the story! So… what did his Attorney General, his brother Robert Kennedy, do…. he sent in 100 agents to “go over the books” of the entire city………… guess what? The investigations stopped!
    THAT is just one instance where Sessions and his lack of action is destroying the Presidents agenda and the very office of the Presidency! He really needs to go… the sooner the better!

      Rdog, yep. 11/17/2016 Admiral Rodgers visited President Trump at Trump Tower. 11/17/2016 President Trump announced his move to Bedminster. 11/18/2016 President Trump announced his nomination of Sessions to AG. Who could he trust at that time? I’m pretty sure he was pissed and announced the nomination of Sessions to AG on that date because of Sessions loyalty from early on. What he didn’t know was how weak Sessions really is. President Trump should fire them starting with RR then Sessions and on down until he gets to someone who will fire Muller and appoint a 2nd special counsel to investigate the MYE, Uranium 1 ECT. Question is, who down the line in the AG office is trustworthy and pissed at the 7th floor enough to do that?

        I fully agree with you Mark! The problem with Trump is that he was, firstly, naive about the workings of Washington. He really believed that one “could reach across the isle”! Progressives have since Reagan participated in Total Political Annihilation and are as big an enemy as any foreign agent. Secondly, POTUS did not know who to trust so he listened to people like Priebus who was trying to help Trump “work” with Progressives and RINOS in Congress. You don’t see RR, Mueller, and anyone else “recusing” themselves even after they used to go to barbecues at Comey home along with featherbedding each other to assure lucrative jobs at Lockheed, for instance. I do not blame Trump for any of this… McConnell, Ryan, and the rest of the RINOS have taken away a lot of the Presidents power with these 4th branch of our government with more power than anything imagined in the Constitution! ME…. I wanted Judge Jeanine Pirro from the beginning. She would kick a.. and take names. Don’t get a Swamp creature from inside the FBI or any other agency full of Slime creatures like McCabe, RR…….
