Senator Grassley Wants Details on Why DOJ Declined to Prosecute Senior FBI Official…

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.  The IG noted “criminal prosecution was declined”.  Now Senator Chuck Grassley wants the details:

    It would be better if Grassley would inquire about James Wolfe getting a slap on the wrist.

        One step at a time! Senator Grassley has been a Killer as the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee. The number of Judicial appointments that have occurred and more importantly will occur before the end of the year is beyond record setting. It is magical because these Judges will be on the bench long after Senator Grassley is gone from this Earth.

        Unlike the rest of the Senate, he is pushing forward with hearings while everyone else is back home.

        From the article linked above:

        The two judicial nomination hearings for the Fourth and Ninth Circuit courts are scheduled for Wednesday and October 24. Congress does not return from recess until after the November 6 midterm elections.

          As I can feel a satisfaction from confirmed Federal judges that will adjudicate the constitution for many years in the future, many rat tailed and rich Swamp critters are escaping justice in our contemporary time.

          A closer alignment with justice for both current crime and judges to preside over the cultural presentation of crime in the future will provide a solid base for USA.

          Exactly. Getting judges confirmed is the best thing the Senate has done these last 2 years.

            “Getting judges confirmed is the best thing the Senate has done these last 2 years.”

            Considering the failure to prosecute VERY serious crimes at the highest levels of huge government agencies who could put any one of us away for good and the persistence of the MAJORITY swamp which got us to this point, those are just speed bumps on our downward path.

          Well said Flep.

          Midterm wins and a new AG for Grassley to work with starts the boomerang.

          The political dynamics in the Senate have changed drastically in 2 years.
          In basic political terms: Trump is not only going to survive a Special Counsel…Mueller has been an unmitigated disaster.

          Grassley (and let’s not forget to credit his amazing crack staff) has documented EVERYTHING—a perfect roadmap for a new AG to hit the ground running.

            I agree with the comment about the Senate changing, however, I keep wondering about the Republican Senators that sit quietly on the Intelligence Committee. Warner et al are seemingly in charge of finding “nothing. Knowing nothing, finding nothing, and saying nothing”.

              @Sandra: There are a number of treasonous republicans as well who participated in the coup against president Trump. Ryan is one of them and retires. Look at all the retirements. Some were flipped while others who were blackmailed by the Hussein gang were relieved of blackmail – like Gowdy.

              Warner, Feinstein, Burr and the rest of the gang in that intelligence swamp have sealed indictments pending.

              Feinstein sold us out to China and her comeuppance will be hitting her hard all the while the outflow of treason to help China has been closed.

              Grassley and McConnell are cleaning up the courts and get rid of these activist judges who brought us lots of grief for a while.

              If we get the right AG to follow Grassley’s bread crumbs then who cares about the Senate Intelligence Committee?

              Legislative branch committee powers max out at a “criminal referral”.to the DOJ.

              DOJ can empanel grand juries, warrant, subpoena and prosecute.

        @InAz: The Awan espionage case will be tried in via military tribunal and not in public setting by a leftist judge. The national security factor is a military issue.

    Bobby, I would add that when the history of all this is written, Sessions’ role will loom large. As I’ve suggested in the past I believe the full story is not yet known. I believe Sessions made a deal for a shaky nomination confirmation that opened the way for a Special Counsel whose real role was to hamstring the new POTUS. Perhaps not fully witting, but that was the effect.

      ….by his not looming at all.

      The effect of Sessions as AG cannot be understated
      Talk about the butterfly effect….remove that one thing and the last 2yrs are completely different…..a grand consolation prize to the Deep State’s desire for a HRC win.
      Don’t know if he was shell-shocked and neutered by his confirmation or made some side deal (recusal for approval) but one things for sure: it’s an ignominious end.

    It’s looking much more likely that senior members and leadership within the DOJ/FBI engaged in felony criminal conduct (and not merely run-of-the-mill DC corruption). As such, these individuals may face a significant risk of prosecution, conviction, and imprisonment should it be revealed that a conspiracy to defraud the FISC has occurred and persisted for over a year. If so, Sessions may conclude that the cure is worse than the disease because of the effect this would have on DOJ/FBI reputation and future credibility. Rather than risk the optics of numerous high ranking federal officials serving prison time, he may facilitate a coverup in which token censure and rule changes substitute for traditional justice. This would put an end to the ideal of equal justice for all and codify a double standard for DC elites versus the average citizen.

What if they too go off the reservation because there just isn’t any consequences. It’s like raising children. Actions should mean appropriate consequences. Instead of saying my kid is special.

      Then he is helping to guarantee that significantly worse will happen the next time the libs take power. They already believe they can get away with virtually anything – fast and furious, IRS scandal, Trump targeting, etc – such that if nothing comes of this beyond a slap on the wrist they will complete their destruction of the republic the next time they have power. There won’t be another meaningful election in our lifetimes.
      I would rather see the FBI an DOJ gone into the dustbin of history than see this republic finally turned into just another failed liberal dictatorship!

      Just as the FISC did NOT prevent COINTELPRO v2 –ON STEROIDS– with the framing and spying upon the campaign of an opposition presidential candidate and a Mueller cover-up and character assassination effort after the election, not only will a failure to INVESTIGATE, CONFIRM, and DISCLOSE PUBLICLY the crimes committed and PROSECUTE to the fullest extent of the law those involved, there will be no good “reputation and future credibility” deserved by any agency involved.

      “This would put an end to the ideal of equal justice for all and codify a double standard for DC elites versus the average citizen.”

      That has been an imaginary concept for a very long time. The pardoning of Nixon for his simple to understand, but far less significant than Trump spygate crimes, is an easy example to point to.

    The photo of LTG Flynn with Senator Grassley and the title are epic and the point is obvious: They prosecuted LTG Flynn, with a 35 year record of service after entrapping him under interrogation but do not prosecute one of their own. Flynn went against Obama and has been a marked man ever since. High ups in DOJ, FBI and CIA were working with that regime to undermine our Nation’s interests and Flynn was in the way. Ever wonder why his “prosecution” has not been completed? Let’s what Grassley has up his sleeve?
