“Criminal Prosecution Was Declined”

The DOJ Office of Inspector General released an interesting investigative summary report today following a review of a “senior FBI official” accepting tickets from a “television news corespondent” and lying to investigators about the events.

(Source)

  • Investigation initiated as a result of the IG report on FBI conduct.
  • Senior FBI Official.
  • Official resigned during OIG review.
  • Criminal prosecution was declined.

The description of the person, and the description of the timeline involved, narrows the field of potential officials to one particular probability.

That particular probability would explain why former FBI Chief Legal Counsel (now retired) James Baker was so forthcoming and cooperative in his closed-door testimony to a joint house committee.

Due to James Baker’s friendship and alignment with internal and external elements who are part of a network politically opposed to the President, many people were wondering what the circumstances would be to explain cooperation from him. Well, considering “criminal prosecution was declined”, this would explain some leverage for self-interested cooperation…

…. just sayin’.

        This is the beauty of the circular firing squad of plotters in a well-prosecuted plot.

        The question is what McCabe can get in return. Depends on the crimes. If he had a hand in Vegas, maybe LIFE IN PRISON is worth a deal. But who can he hand over?

        Things are going to get very weird here, I’m thinking.

                I think certainly there was a plot within the government to assassinate JFK; too many unanswered questions remain. But JFK Jr. took off in his private plane to go to a destination that would require flying at night by instrument. He was not qualified to fly by instrument, and so, since he could not see where his plane was in relation to the ocean, flew directly into the water. Not murder, just another Kennedy man thinking the rules don’t apply to him.

            All kinds of scenarios are possible, but what I do know is this – the more Democrats and their allies and appointees we remove from positions of power, the more these “agenda-justifying crimes” disappear.

      Exactly. It’s the way it works in the Clinton and now Clinton-Obama party. There wAas ALWAYS a firewall to protect the Clintons. The firewall (Webb Hubbell, Susan MacDougal) goes to jail (and in Hubbell’s case, made a good living while in the slammer) keeps his mouth shut and the Clintons skate. The same will happen with Obama. My guess is Sundance is right and McCabe is being set up as the Webb Hubbell firewall. (Don’t know if Susan MacDougal got any $$$ for her silence but unlike her husband she didn’t have a heart attack while in solitary confinement).

      The Deep State will NOT let Clinton (former FLOTUS, Sen) OR Obama (first black president) be indicted no matter what they do/did. Both could commit murder on national television video-taped and broadcast to the whole world and somehow the Deep State would protect them. That’s just the way it is.

      McCabe will take the fall and probably come out a very rich man. Soros will see to that.

      We are not a banana republic. POTUS does not have a Gestapo and SS to clean out people and programs. You would be howling mad if Obama had had such power. President Donald J. Trump is protecting the office of POTUS with the same vigor that Obama sullied it. Think about it.

      This fluster cluck is not a two hour movie with good guys busting through windows and bad guys spraying green gas. This is life on the coral reef where occurrences are both synchronous and subject to the impact of unexpected change. That is why every battle hardened person will tell you that the battle unfolds according to how it progresses and plans are basically useless. Hillary and her band of sycophants dreamed up the Chris Stevens arms selling scheme and got Benghazi as the payoff. CIA “contractors” followed their principles, flipped off their overseers and Tyrone Woods and Glen Dohery died trying to save a dead ambassador. The whole affair led the “establishment” to fumble-cluck about a video and lie to parents and the nation at Andrews in front of flag draped coffins and on and on and on. Brennan, Clapper, Clintoon, the Podestas, Gen. Petraeus, Coates, Warner, Penetta, Ash Carter, Feinstein, Meadows, Mattis, and now Trump all know what happened, who lied and why they lied. Some of those named people will try to keep it from happening again, but none of those people has the formula for unscrambling eggs that made the mess in the first place.

      That is the world President Donald J. Trump has been thrust into.

      Great catch Donna. President Trump knows how to get things done. On the economy, he knew deregulation and corporate tax cuts had to come.before the economy could come back to life. He also knew to unleash the energy sector. Once those things were in place, the economy took off and continues to roll full steam ahead. Same thing with foreign policy. Assign ownership to the real instigators and the surface problem is easier to resolve..we saw that with China and DPRK and with Pakistan and Afghanistan/Taliban. For those who are looking, we have seen other moves that foreshadow future wins but we arent quite sure where POTUS is headed with them like EOs that freeze assets for Human Trafficking and for meddling in US elections. The

      Our President knows how to lay the foundation for MAGA winning, and he doesn’t make a move until the foundation is complete.

      “In response, the unions filed suit against the administration. In her ruling, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson wrote that the kinds of changes the administration had attempted to institute must involve negotiations between federal agencies and their workers, and that the Trump administration had exceeded its authority by attempting to impose them from above.

      Though the Trump administration had positioned the orders as mere guidance, not hard-and-fast rules, Jackson wrote that the rules would still “impair the ability of agency officials to keep an open mind, and to participate fully in give-and-take discussions, during collective bargaining negotiations.”

Sundance has been clear that we not look away, that it is a deep swamp that is and will fight back because there are trillions at stake, and that we need to stay focused, deal with what we know, adjust when we know more, and I believe, question everything or at least to start asking the right questions. Asking questions isn’t trolling, I think the trolls are just debby downers hoping to bring as many into the doldrums as they can, and often doing so in tag teams. Patience is going to be a great virtue over these next few years, as the swamp includes the institutions known as DoJ, FB, congress, the different cabinet dept.s – it’s everywhere, and when we think we have a handle on it or a part of it, another part starts throwing their murkyness to divide, distract, discourage. Hang in there, you know you’re not a troll, let others deal with it as best they can, we all have our different biases and hopes.

I would love to vote against my Deep State/Swamp dwelling Republican representative, but I’m going to put the biggest check mark beside his name I can find. That said, I will HAPPILY vote for Corey Stewart and though he’s fighting against insurmountable odds — including the GOP refusing to fund him .

      Since I began regular visits to this site, I have observed that a significant number of Treepers are very mature persons, like myself, who have the time to read much of the content here and who embrace the intellectual stimulation of closely following the exposure of corruption in our government. Moreover, lengthy life experience tends to decrease the willingness a person has for accepting the reasonableness of opinions that are not supportive of one’s strong, personal beliefs.

      In my case, much of what I learn from SD induces anger and prompts a reflexive and intense desire for both eliminating the deep state cabal and bringing swift, severe justice down upon them.

      The constant teasing of the “Big Ugly,” the unending Mueller investigation, and the persistence of the Dems to fight dirty using “all means necessary” to advance their anti-American agenda foments a growing and aggressive impatience in me and many others.

      IMO, too many patriots commenting here have been dismissed and/or insulted as “trolls” because they share reasonable assessments and opinions that are contrary to the overwhelming mainstream of thought that feeds the tree. I am confident that if SD did not own this site, he/she would have been so labeled multiple times as his/her fact-finding induced evolutionary changes in his/her opinion regarding the AG and the depth, breadth, and power of the swamp.

      An opinion forum that becomes an echo chamber is neither intellectually enriching nor fertile ground for recognizing realism and collectively determining successful strategies to advance the goals we hold dear. In my experience, respectful argumentation within a group universally produces a better understanding of the issue and results in a more efficient and effective plan of action than a single, overbearing opinion shouted by a few.

      Add the certainty of SD and ourselves having to work with a very fluid, highly incomplete, and frustratingly complicated information set, and we all should accept that reasonable people can respectfully disagree.

    For over a hundred years, a conglomerate of global wealth holders made a concentrated effort to purchase the peoples government of the United States (for obvious reasons)

    Using vast amounts of money, they soon owned the peoples political representatives

    Spreading more money around & with the puppet politicians in their back pocket, they jerry rigged the election process, & soon the process was controlled by them. The people were given a choice of puppet candidate A or puppet candidate B

    The puppets, following the orders of their masters & to further their own interests, soon jerry rigged the entire US government, the entire system, to be one big happy family

    Most everyone coming into the family was / is controlled by various levels of puppets who are all loyal to the family due to financial / political rewards doled out

    Every governmental department / institution is controlled, with varying levels of power depending on their importance & worth, to the overall power scheme

    This means every single governmental safeguard put in place to protect the peoples interests is controlled by the puppets & their masters

    Political representation, bureaucratic, law enforcement, military, judicial, all controlled to produce a preferred outcome. Each step in the system under tight control

    Enter Trump. Probably the first honest & honorable man elected, with zero connections to the puppet masters. The first chink in the armor that is total control of the system

    Out of what, 535 representatives serving the puppet masters, Trump has maybe 6 on his side

    So the question becomes, how does one man & his few warriors fight back & defeat a century old entrenched cabal of corruption & criminality that holds almost total power over the system & has international power interests as allies?

    Do we hope we get enough patriots elected to hold them accountable?
    What happens when those held accountable are let off by the puppet masters judges?

    Do we hope we can just dismantle enough of the puppet masters stranglehold & start anew?

    Do we tear down entire institutions & forge new ones?
    What chaos would that bring?

    This situation is our reality. We don’t really know the implications of what could happen to our lives & the world order. It affects everything

    This is truly heavy shit, born of century’s old corruption & criminality. & it will ultimately have implications on how we all live & make our livings

    Me?

      Do you realize how closely your comment parallels the idea of combating “man caused” climate change?

      In the terms of the political climate of Washington D.C.: “it is what it is”. It is the power capital of the USA and perhaps the world. Every special interest which can benefit from government is in Washington D.C. whoring away. Ditto every single power center in every single country in the world.

      Power is neutral. Some use power for good things and some use power for bad things and some use power just to be powerful and to Hell with the consequences. Corrupt people with power do corrupt things. Ask Justice Kavanaugh.

      Years ago, we had mostly Catholics and Christians. Then the Christians started arguing over stupid stuff and they broke into sects and the sects broke into clubs and after other schisms, people just blew off going to church because it became a battle over righteous piety and virtue signaling and triggered people.

      Now we have a “climate” in which the Ten Commandments are hidden in closets and slap-happy non-believers wear bumper stickers about all religions “co-existing”. Not that they give a rat’s ass about religion.

      Moral relativism, situation ethics and the religion of group dynamics brought to perfection is what pervades our society. “Proggressives” yearn to be Mussolini.

      Pardon me, but just who the Hell are you planning on attacking to “tear this shit apart & let the chips fall where they may”? That is the game plan of ISIS, in case you didn’t notice.

      I believe this. A man at his age doesn’t change.
      I watched almost all of The Apprentice (had never seen it before because I live in Australia), I watched any and all video interviews I could find and I bought his book The Art of the Deal.
      One thing that struck me as consistent with PDJT’s sermons was “you never let traitors get away with it. You get them out quickly and punish them” and “always strike hard against your enemies and make an example of them so that others don’t try the same thing”
      The other consistent thing was FAMILY ALWAYS COMES FIRST.

      The swamp went after PDJT’s family. He will NOT let them get away with it. He knows that even he was re-elected and then retired after 2024, the swamp would come after him and his family. Ivanka and Don jr etc are still relatively young. The swamp would go after them to send a message to others not to follow in DJT’s footsteps.

      PDJT will NOT allow this. He WILL destroy his enemies. He has already done a good job after less than 2 years. He still has 6 more years to go and is getting stronger by the week.
      Think about this. The first few are always…but always the hardest. Once you start getting deeper into them, it gets easier.
      I’d venture to say the swamp will look a lot different in a few more years.

        …two men at the top of the power pole, same exact criminal charges, polar opposite results so far …consider that Baker was caught taking actual bribes for leaking to journalists …nominally a far worse offense than McCabe leaking simply for political reasons …the message is clear to even an 8th-grade reader …cooperate and walk, don’t and lose everything, possibly even your freedom

        …as Trump said, “it’s a complicated business” …but in the end, there are a lot more Bakers in the Deep State than there are McCabes …patience, eh

        …for those of you who simply can’t accept that Baker will not be punished, you have my condolences but not my sympathy …I believe Trump is after much bigger fish …he told Hillary in front of a national audience that if he were elected, she’d be in jail …after the past two years of Clinton sourced deep state attacks on him and his family, I now consider that a campaign promise he intends to deliver on …a promise, imnsho, very much worth watching the small fry walk for

        …I’ve said this before but it’s worth repeating …Trump is a big boy …he’s not going to the mats simply because the deep state came after him …he fully expected that …but when they went after his family, they crossed a red line …and Trump is no Obama where red lines are concerned …personally, I’m stocking up on popcorn …this is going to be worth watching

    Let’s face it, there’s been corruption since the founding of this country, it’s human nature. However, it must be discouraged by setting consequences. Although taking bribes is egregious, the bigger issue is the FISA warrants, the spying, their colluding with foreign agents, the framing. But there needs to be accountability. Did they even give a rationale for why they chose not to recommend prosecution? WHO declined criminal prosecution?

    Wow. This comment thread is full of TDS. If I was on any other site, I’d say there are a bunch of shills here.
    Does anyone have any idea how extremely difficult this is? Almost everyone who matters in this current government is compromised / corrupt. Courts are legislating and interfering in things they have no right to be. Many MAGA actions are challenged in courts and many are struck down. We’ve got a “judge” from Hawaii legislating immigration policy for all of America!
    Can anyone imagine how any prosecutions would go right now?? Can anyone imagine even one conviction on major actors in these courts?? Would this DoJ even bring charges?? Can anyone imagine what would happen to Trump if he tried to invoke military tribunal trials?? It’s likely that if Trump dropped MOAB now, he’d be crucified all over worldwide media; many would not believe any of it, and this would be a touted as a strong reason to impeach him under Article 25, and it might work! The Antifa MOB riots, assaults, property damage and threats to motorists would be happening everywhere.
    The deck is stacked full of jokers. There needs to be a carefully crafted, methodic approach to turning this swamp into a desert. Undoing a half-century, or more, of systemic corruption isn’t going to be done in a few short years, by one man working with a couple of senators who have mostly been making noise, so far. Some progress has been made however, by getting rid of some actors who were responsible for FISA abuse. None have been prosecuted, but they are no longer in their former positions to do more harm. Courts all over America are being stacked Republican! Trump is using some leverage on these bad actors to get some things done that he wants. Baby steps are all that can be taken right now. He’s making the best of it as much as he can.
    Don’t trust his new “fair weather” friends in Congress, either. At the very first chance they get, each and every one of those swamp-dwellers will be back to their normal Trump-hating rhetoric and deep state duties. For now, all we can do is get out and VOTE, and support the phenomenal, astounding efforts and progress made by VSG President Donald J Trump to make our country ours again, and great again. God Bless our President! He’s one man, against the totality of the entire D.C. (Deeply Corrupt) apparatus. He needs, and deserves, our support.

    If it is true that “McCabe is the sitting duck, scapegoat, pigeon, fall-guy etc” then what does that make his immediate superior Comey?

    The FBI’s Teflon Don, a clever mastermind or a perfectly innocent dedicated Director that had no idea what his immediate subordinate or any of his “Special” Agents were plotting under his watch?

    McCabe doesn’t look like he’s the kind of sap that will remain silent all the way to a confined prison cell if he is fingered as the fall guy and so on. It’s highly unlikely that Saint Andrew was the mastermind that organized the entire operation alone. The tentacles of this monstrous and insidious alleged coup attempt likely spreads very far, very wide and much higher up the leadership chain.

      Yes, it spreads wide, but the top dogs insulated themselves nicely, as ever. Brennan has made sure to provide himself plenty of buffers, which should hold absent a pitbull in the AG’s job, which McConnell will never confirm. Comey is dumb, as is Clapper, but they are clever enough to have gamed the system and stayed clear of ops. Lynch will be untouchable, meaning Obama will be untouchable.

      All these people will be able to cut the cord on the poor slobs: Strzok, McCabe et al. The system will probably go easy on them. They didn’t do much with the IRS criminals, and Awan skated easily. But even if the slobs flip, what can they do? Unless you put a Mueller type prosecutor spending millions to go after the top dogs, it’ll never happen, and you won’t see a Mueller type prosecutor on this.

      This is exactly why people who are screaming for mass arrests and trials are wrong.

      Menendez was let go. They botched the trial on purpose. They could do the same thing with these folks. That’s why we’re seeing plea deals at the moment.

      But that’s going to change. Trump has appointed a ton of judges, with more being confirmed every day. He is transforming the judiciary.

      At the same time, Sessions is quietly cleansing the DoJ. What’s that? You haven’t seen it on the news?

      Please.

      In order for this to work, it has to be done quietly. Incrementally.

      But it is happening. One could argue that Mueller’s job was actually to pull as many of the worst partisans out of the DoJ to speed up the process. I’m not saying Mueller was in on the plan because that isn’t necessary. In fact it works better when a dupe doesn’t know he’s being used.

      But the end result is that Mueller’s partisan all-stars are identified and contained. The DoJ is slowly working through case after case.

      One final point everyone is missing: The Dept. of State was formerly fiercely loyal to Hillary. Odd that they’ve now pulled so many clearances.

      Complicated business folks!

        I think this is right. If there was ever going to be some joint reckoning for the misconduct of the most power abusing DOJ prosecutors: Weissman, Dickey, Freeny, … and Mueller himself (Anthrax investigation, Whitey Bulger); they first had to be gathered into one place, and given the opportunity for further misconduct that could then be exposed.

        I don’t know if it will happen. But they are gathered together, and four have been fired in the past 6 weeks….

    When it comes to holding the coup cabal accountable, “what’s taking so long?” is a common complaint in the CTH. My two cents: 18 months is the standard empanelment for a federal grand jury. If such a grand jury, say one out in Utah, is working on the crime of the century, and the grand jury was empaneled in the Fall of 2017, is it reasonable to suggest we may have to wait a few more months for justice? Anybody with federal grand jury experience care to enlighten us laymen? Much to my dismay, I’ve read some go as long as 24 months in duration. Is a SECRET federal grand jury really where the action is?

If it were not for Korea and Vietnam the tanks may have rolled west through the Fulda gap. It is a multigenerational fight. A war we cannot and must not lose. It took 660 thousand lives to maintain the Union in 1865. 65,000 lives to throw down the line in the sand in Vietnam. If we can fight off Communism without spilled blood in our own borders it will be a miracle.
