    When Goodlatte talks about the president deferring to the I.G. at DOJ, is he talking about Horowitz?

      Yes, and I am still unclear as to who now is responsible for redaction review? It sounds as though this has been ripped from the FBI and the standard DOJ rank and file overseeing them?

        IT IS MY OPINION THIS ALLOWS THE FBI AND DOJ TO CONTROL THE BAD NEWS WHICH IS TO COME REGARDLESS OF THEIR ACTIONS. IF IT DOESN’T ALL COME OUT, TRUMP WILL RELEASE IT. MY CONCERN IS WHY ENGLAND AND AUSTRALIA ARE CONCERNED ABOUT THE RELEASE….WHAT PART DID THEY PLAY IN ALL THIS?

      Yes it is the same Horowitz that provided the mostly nothingburger known as the Clinton e-mail investigation. I don’t see any reason he will be more just in his investigation of the FISA abuse.

      I REALLY hope I am wrong on this one, however I’m not holding my breath.

      • Matthew Schaller says:

        I agree with you; however a point was made earlier that made sense to me. If the IG glosses over the FISA abuse like he did with the Clinton e-mail investigation, Trump will pull out his ace card and declassify everything. Thought is, if the declassified documents do expose how bad the corruption is and the IG report does not reflect that, then an argument could be made that the IG is complicit in covering it up. An argument could also be made that the IG’s findings in the Clinton e-mail investigation were also tantamount to a cover-up.

        I think it is in the IG’s best interests to be objective about the FISA abuse, as Trump wants it to be. If he is, to Trump’s satisfaction, I think that is when we will start to see the dominoes start falling.

        The first report issued by Horowitz was detailed, professional and damning. Rosenstein wrote a duplicitous summary that #fakenews used to push the false narrative that Horowitz’s report was a “nothing burger”. People who think for themselves and research for themselves read the actual report and formed their own opinion rather than parroting the opinion propogandists gave them. The people who read the report know it is damning. BTW the media pulled this same stunt with the Wikileaks DNC emails. “Nothing to see here folks. Trust us.” It is great that Horowitz is handling this and that Rosenstein has been removed from the ability to interfere. Its hilarious that Team McCabe is responsible for destroying the Swamps firewall. Panicked Rats make mistakes and become even more stupid than usual. They must be so pissed and Trump must be laughing his head off.

        It will lessen Mueller’s ability to say Pres. Trump is obstructing Mueller’s investigation …Yeah, right!! i don’t believe that the IG will conclude or even say that there was FISA abuse, or even if that’s his conclusion, all of the accused get their chance to re-write his report. Whoever heard of the accused getting to re-write the findings of the prosecution or a grand jury verdict? I’ve said before, I want to see the IG report BEFORE RR & Wray got the opportunity to disagree, criticize & re-write the conclusions and the report.

        It is very clear that Wray, Sessions, RR & their staff feel they’ve done nothing wrong, nor did their predecessors do anything wrong; the DOJ/FBI are not accountable to the President, Congress or to the Courts. Mueller will do all he can to cover up for the FBI/DOJ (his guys), the Clintons, the Bushs and OVomit.

            19 October is just a few weeks before the election. Sounds Ike this wasn’t a subpoena – supposedly cooperating- so easy to delay again.

            Same thing with Brett Kavanaugh- delay- delay – delay until after the elections. Hoping for a change of scenery.
            Looks like another woman might be coming forward with a salacious story. If it’s baseless – it’s just another delay tactic.

            If they both get delayed until after the election, it seems to me many in the GOP are wanting to deep six and impeach too- just not as overtly as the Dems.

    Still not enough “righteous” frustration. The whole expose and prosecute the swamp is still, IMHO, 90% in the “Political” phase and 10% legal. The Swamp, including, (WAG) 90% civil service, Dems, Rethugs, MSM, etc. have worked for three years to convince the Public that DJT is unqualified, unstable, demented, dangerous to America, etc.; 45% of the population believes it 100% and probably another 30% have those questions lingering in the background of their perceptions. And then 100% of the Dem Congress and probably 80% of the COC bought off Rethugs would be very happy if PDJT had a Presidency ending event. And then the Federal Judiciary, etc., etc.

    So PDJT, against all odds wins, is sworn in and in an alternate universe, announces an on going coup attempt by DOJ, FBI, CIA, etc. and has ordered declassification, investigation, prosecutions by his newly appointed Atty. Gen. That would be utter and complete confirmation of the MSM/Dem/Rethug narrative about Trump; no tax cuts, no 4.2% GDP, etc., Impeachment proceedings in the HR 24/7. Now nearly two years later, some progress has been made but just look at the reaction of the Swamp and of Trump’s own executive branch employees to a rather limited request to declassify documents. “Crazy, unstable, dangerous!!!” PDJT is a master of Branding, Marketing and Negotiations; that’s the phase we are still in. The push for changing the direction from political to legal has to be from bottom up,

          Hi Curry, since out last exchange on the “Panel Discussion” blog, another little detail clicked into place.

          It was during the Ainsley Earhardt interview of POTUS that he dropped the little nugget that he selected Chris Wray as a result of Rosenstein’s recommendation. As I have noted “ad nauseam”, this happened 3 weeks AFTER Rosie appointed the SC – meaning POTUS was placing his life in Rosie’s hands, since both the new FBI director and the SC are now Rosie’s “picks”. At this time Rudi Giuliani was POTUS’s unofficial adviser. POTUS would not have placed this much faith in Rosie without ironclad guarantees of Rosie’s fidelity, and Rudi likely had input here.

          Anyway, the new detail that clicked is this – the Ainsley interview was Aug 23 and the NYT/McCabe hit on Rosie was Sept 21. And it was reported/mentioned/ dropped that the NYT piece took 3 weeks of work to put together.

          Interesting timing, methinks!!! POTUS drops to the world that Rosie had his trust AFTER appointing Mueller. McCabe sees at this “bombshell” and goes WTF??!! He obviously talks to his lawyer, games out the implications and realises there is no way around it – he was played by Rosie. This takes a week to game out. He contacts the NYT with his plan to hit Rosie, which takes the reported 3 weeks to Sep 21. Timeline works!!!!

          POTUS dropped that “little nugget” and scared the cr@p out of McCabe – now watch the rats start to lash out at each other.

          I and a bunch of others idly speculated that McCabe would be first to crack, based on his reported threat to do just that. Well, it has happened. “Andie” is starting to crack!! 🙂

      “If they are all plotting together”; one of the difficulties with the plotters is that some time after the election, they HAD to realize they were in jeopardy and that communicating increased their individual risk.
      These people all KNOW the capabilities for ‘ bugging’someone, and how difficult it is to have truly ‘secure’communications.
      Hence, as events unfold, they can’t coordinate their responces.

      In addition, as the noise tightens, and they can hear the branch creaking, it becomes every man and woman for yourself.

    Talk about run-on sentences — Goodlatte is the master; what a wearisome fellow. Now, the question everybody has asked but nobody is answering: Which foreign entity convinced Trump to hold off the evidence of the failed Presidential coup?

    Let’s take a guess and ask who has 24 access to the NSA database with no controls whatsoever? Would that happen to be the UK and its Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ)? How is it that somebody can go knocking at their door on Hubble Road and get, illegally mind you, whatever information they want on US citizens, something our own agencies cannot do without a warrant from the FISA court? Or did the GCHQ get a warrant from the FISA court?

    Actually it’s pretty clear that the FISA court is nothing but a veil blurring access to illegally obtained data in the NSA database. If a corrupt FBI and a corrupt DOJ loses the confidence of the FISA court, they can go straight to the British GCHQ and obtain whatever they want anyway. Talk about a bypass; this is a major artery. The FBI/DOJ, Steele, Halper, Misfud and the GCHQ make quite a team, don’t they?

      Pretty sure it’s not illegal for foreign actors (even on US soil) to surveil US citizens comms. I’ve read (maybe here on CTH) that GCHQ was involved in surveillance of US persons and then feeding that info to the Aussies, who then fed the info back to our IC.

    Timing. It’s all about timing.

    Trump doesn’t want to drop any MOABs until Kavanaugh is confirmed.

    Timing.

    Trump wants the truth out before the midterms.

    Timing.

    Kavanaugh should be confirmed by first week of Oct. If documents are not coming forth by early the second week, then I think a few MOABs start to drop.

    Timing. It’s all about timing. Can’t be too early. Can’t wait too long. October is the month od decision and destiny.

    The IG must send any declassified docs back to the originating agency for their preview and comment before they are released. In other words, another week or more of stall tactics before any sunlight.

      Noncombat; beg to disagree. That WOULD be the process, for a ‘typical’I.G. investigation and report.

      In the case,of these documents and text msgs. he is reviewing them as a result of a specific request by the President.

      It is a PUBLIC request, and to me it seems clear he is asking “Is there ANYTHING in these materials which legitimately needs to be redacted, due to revealing ‘sources and methods’, ‘jeapordising ongoing investigations’ (Huber or Mueller), or Federal privacy laws?
      I.G. answers “No”, or days “Yes, this text reveals the name and school Comets daughter goes to” (for instance, i.e. privacy concern).
      FOR days “fine, make the APPROPRIATE redactions, and release them.
      There is NOTHING that I see, that requires sending them back to the agencies, that have all ready ‘weighed in’.
      And, if handled in this way, TECHNICALLY it is NOT POTUS releasing the documents, it is I.G.

      And, if Huber IS doing something behind the scenes, FOR can insure that releasing will not compromise.

      A note: you know how frustrated WE are, at not knowing IF Huber is doing ANYTHING, cause no comment on ‘ongoing investigations’?
      Imagine your one of the conspirators!

      Uh huh. 29 sept is the last day of the Brett Kavenough confirmation- and suddenly another woman is supposed to come out.

      Nellie Ohr is supposed to testify 19 October- no subpoena since she’s “cooperating”. Easy to delay that one too until after the elections if she’s a no shoe.

      IG has to send fisa docs to the originating agency. Maybe just a few drips come out stringing us along until after the election

      The “October surprise” is starting to look like the uniparty delays things until after the election. Of course it will be a down to the wire kabuki show – so it looks like the Republicans we’re really trying. Just like they try to catch Hillary for decades and she always gets awaywith it.

          Drudge has it at the top of the page. Rosanna Farrow and Meyers. Right now not much is known – but all the Dems would need to do is have a couple more come forward, no matter the truth, and if it goes past the 29 sept they have to start over on the nomination process.

        No, Sept 29 is not a hard deadline. That’s been misreported and corrected several times but it seems not to be heard by many. The process is not cast in stone there is no hard law requiring Sept 29/Oct 1, etc. Grassley and McConnell can push the vote back to accommodate the unusual hearing requirements. Kavanaugh can join SCOTUS at any time and start the next new SCOTUS case.

Your suggestion is to deny money and votes to POTUS and those putting their lives on the line if they dont do things exactly the way you want? BTW General Washington lost his first 7 battles.

  29. If slimeball Rosenstein can get a face to face with PDJT to beg him not to declassify, then surely Nunes and Goodlatte can also get to see PDJT and convince him otherwise. Furthermore, I say to hell with filthy Oz and the UK. Those Governments were neck deep in the scheme to overthrow PDJT and should now suffer the consequences which will probably be nothing more than merely huge embarrassment. PDJT must stand firm and not let himself get played by all these bad actors.
