Judiciary Chairman Goodlatte Wants Comey and Lynch On Record Prior to Exit…

Congressional oversight in the matters of the DOJ and FBI political weaponization has been negligent by design.  While Special Counsel Robert Mueller creates the “ongoing investigation shield” for all who would be questioned, the republican-led congress has been weak in delivering any actionable results through oversight.

All prior witness transcripts remain concealed as the GOP turns over power to the allies of the witnesses.  Many who have followed the details are frustrated, and with little to no progress within the DOJ/FBI investigation(s) there is an understandable sentiment we have once-again been played. [Fast-n-Furious; IRS; Benghazi; Clinton Emails and now the abuses by the DOJ and FBI.  All of it covered-up by the same can-kicking process]

To rub the proverbial salt in the wound, today Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte announces his request to subpoena former FBI Director, James Comey (November 29), and former DOJ Attorney General, Loretta Lynch (Dec. 5th), in the lame-duck session prior to turning over committee power to the Democrats.

James Comey refused the previous committee invitation in October under the auspices of demanding a public hearing.  The motive for demanding a public hearing is transparent: he cannot be questioned about classified activity, information or conduct; or about the  counterintelligence operation mounted against candidate Trump in 2016; in an open setting. Comey thinks we are stupid.

    Whitaker must move with conviction and vigor.

    The IG and Congress have identified numerous crimes. Those investigation have been completed and await prosecution. If some individuals are involved with other crimes those charges can be brought later, there is no reason to delay prosecution of persons who have already been identified as violating laws.

        Davidb, you can thank that worthless pansy, Jeff Sessions, for doing absolutely nothing to prosecute those involved with trying to frame President Trump. If Sessions wasn’t such a loser, he would have appointed a special counsel to investigate and seek indictments against any and all concerned with the failed coup, and also go after Hildabeast for her illegal server, pay for play, and Uranium One sell out. How many times did the house and senate request that a special counsel be appointed, and Sessions answer was to use a US Attorney in Utah, who so far, hasn’t done really anything to prosecute these people. As far as I’m concerned, it was all just a whitewash. I just hope that the next USAG appointed by President Trump, will be a bulldog and one who isn’t afraid to go after the swamp creatures.

      Hillary told us that the Democrats were better educated with higher IQs than Republicans. I wonder if she can explain why only Democrats have trouble voting? Republicans always seem to be able to show up with a photo ID and vote. No late voting, misfiling out of ballots or anything. Just Democrats have those problems. Did Hillary lie to us? Oh, the horrors of it all.

        Democrats don’t have trouble “voting”. Democrats have trouble with finding eligible people willing to vote for their policies so they must “find” them in rental cars, janitor’s closets, restroom stalls and anywhere else until they win. Having a one month open voting season appears to be an unmitigated disaster.

        I understand absentee voting for military members that are deployed and other very limited exceptions, but voting should be a sacred process and defended as such. If there is a federal standard for the type of light bulb I put in my bathroom, there should be some standards to the voting process.

        If a photo ID is too much of a burden maybe some form of biometrics could be used. I am sure even the poorest and most down-trodden Democrat has a finger and possibly even a face. A large percentage of those fingers and faces and possibly even tattoos are loaded into a national registry. Many cellphones can be unlocked with a finger.

        The complexity of a ballot should not be difficult to replicate throughout the entire country. I can type in a zip code and figure out how many restaurants are within 5, 10, or 25 miles from my location. Surely if we put our “brightest” minds to work, we can figure out a way to make a ballot appear at thousands or millions of designated polling places throughout the country.

        As much as I like the cartoonish voting station, a biometric enabled tablet would provide the same results. But what do I know, I’m just some uneducated buffoon from the middle of Kansas without any political connections.

          There is only the trust that actual voting data will not be miss used, and the last two years has sure as heck sunk that belief.

    We were indeed played.

    There was no 64D Chess.

    And Sessions, Horowitz and Huber were not following some plan.

    The sad fact is something many of us already know:

    It’s a big club (filled with Globalists and Leftist media), and Patriots, Statesmen and regular Americans who love the Republic and the American culture aren’t in it.

    PDJT may prove out to have been America’s best shot at restoring the Republic.

    The House flipping at this time is just amazing and very, very unfortunate.

    But, in light of the retirements and a media that is essentially an arm of the Democrat party, it’s not surprising the house flipped.

    Really sad.

    POTUS has his work cut out for him. He’s not perfect, but I can’t imagine a better person to navigate where America finds itself.

    I only hope he softens the edges and doesn’t express some of the unappealing things he says sometimes that just give fodder to his critics. And I hope he better expresses the sentiments he’s making. He can’t afford to lose the liberals in the middle spectrum.

    I suppose that some rough edges wouldn’t be POTUS being POTUS, but in 2020 I suspect the Democrats are going to run a really appealing candidate, probably female.

    And it will be after two more years of open borders, another wave of socialist fed voters coming of age, and the Uniparty will have put up their firewalls to keep another PDJT from penetrating the Clubs wire, and really fine tune Palm Beach, FL and Broward County, FL vote fraud.

      I have been thinking and saying this a long time here at CTH.

      The golden rule is important to me (Do unto to others…) and I would have never done unto anyone what Sessions, RR, Mueller, and Comey did to Trump and others. I would not have acted that way toward Obama. Obama deserved an AG who had his back like Holder. But so did Trump.

      From the get go Sessions never acted as I or anyone I see posting here would have acted. His actions did not make sense at the time and still don’t.

      When Comey said that Clinton did not intend to break the law I knew then he was a snake. One does not have to be a lawyer or in law enforcement to know this is baloney. Anyone who could see past the nose on his/her face could see he was covering for her.

      And Lou Dobbs’ report last night made it quite evident that our Very Stable Genius President Donald J. Trump is actually dealing well with this mess at the border, which was not of his making. On fact he is only leader in many years to take a stand there. They are not being granted asylum and they are not being caught and released.

      When you criticize him for not releasing before midterms (in my opinion not at all proven to be the reason the loss – voter fraud far more likely), and then conflate the border issue in for which he is doing what is actually working, it sounds like, hmm – piling on for effect.

God gave us a gift in Trump, but half of us despised that gift, demanding that “Barabbas be released to us” instead. The only prayer we have right now before God is Abraham’s prayer, that God would perhaps spare the nation for the sake of the few righteous that remain.

    I know this is a trite analogy, but I will use it anyway. There is a chess match playing out in DC between those who believe coverup is the lesser evil and those who believe no effective remedy can occur absent transparency. The game plan for the former has always been to delay and obfuscate indefinitely until public interest is fully dissipated and a charade of token gestures can be offered as closure. Despite hopeful aspirations, there is no White Knight in the Congress or Administration that is likely to save the day for truth, justice, and the American Way.

    As things stand currently, the best we can hope for is a few more small crumbs of revelation before the book is closed. There is, however, a path to forcing transparency, but it would require great courage and sacrifice. In essence, Nunes would have to use his few remaining weeks as Chairman to call before his committee a handful of DOJ/FBI whistle-blower employees that would be willing to tell the whole truth of what has transpired in a open public hearing. It would likely require a week or two of televised hearings, but it would start an avalanche that not even the most powerful players in DC could stop. I don’t think this is likely, but it is doable.

      It’s actually a brilliant idea but Devin Nunes, has sacrificed so much already! This would not stop them but it could slow them down.

      I would hate to be the person who would ask him.

        I intended no criticism of Nunes, and in fact, regard him as being one of the very few truly honorable men in politics today. He is also the only individual holding some measure of power that can actually make a difference against the wave of corruption currently engulfing DC. It actually can be a simple as one open hearing and one witness giving testimony.

        There exist several federal employees who were first person witnesses to the illegal conduct of non-governmental persons (contractors) researching the NSA database for political information and then leaking that information to an unauthorized outside entity (Fusion GPS). This is the same crime that DOJ intends to use to prosecute Julian Assange, and that hypocrisy would not be lost on the American public. Such an event would likely have the same impact that Alexander Butterfield’s testimony did in the Watergate hearings. Nunes need not fear retribution from Paul Ryan because he is leaving office, and Trump’s tweets could help offset the media whitewash that would follow.

        The Swamp wins by systematically wearing down public interest and hope. They lose if a spark of truth ignites a wildfire of public outrage. This is not rocket science.

    At first my reaction is, how can people not care about these agencies and people assuming powers unto themselves?
    Then I remember, there are reasonable people who do care, it’s just that not many have a platform to express their views nationwide.
    Th there are those who are just not all that politically aware.
    The number of people who actively support this openly are very few. We have no way of knowing how many are behind the scenes completely.
    My guess is there are more of us than there are of them.

    In hindsight, we should not have sat by idly while our schools dropped all teaching of civics.
    Richard Dreyfuss, an actor, for crying out loud, was the only person crusading on this issue.
    Of course, this was pre-internet, but still.
    That should have told us something, none of the politicians and none of the pundits cared, I don’t even think they knew.
    Then there are the people like Dan Rather. The Deep State as rogue agencies outside of the people’s control should be making him so outraged that he is screaming from the top of buildings, but because of his personal enmity toward Donald Trump, he is absolutely blind.
    What good at all is a “reporter” who won’t report, because they refuse to see hear and speak no evil of those on the perceived “side” that he has perceived to be the right one?

    It isn’t about Donald Trump. It was never about Donald Trump.

    From C.S. Lewis – The Abolition of Man –

    “The operation of The Green Book and its kind is to produce what may be called Men without Chests. It is an outrage that they should be commonly spoken of as Intellectuals. This gives them the chance to say that he who attacks them attacks Intelligence. It is not so. They are not distinguished from other men by any unusual skill in finding truth nor any virginal ardour to pursue her. Indeed it would be strange if they were: a persevering devotion to truth, a nice sense of intellectual honour, cannot be long maintained without the aid of a sentiment which Gaius and Titius could debunk as easily as any other. It is not excess of thought but defect of fertile and generous emotion that marks them out. Their heads are no bigger than the ordinary: it is the atrophy of the chest beneath that makes them seem so.

    “And all the time — such is the tragi-comedy of our situation — we continue to clamour for those very qualities we are rendering impossible. You can hardly open a periodical without coming across the statement that what our civilization needs is more ‘drive’, or dynamism, or self-sacrifice, or ‘creativity’. In a sort of ghastly simpUcity we remove the organ and demand the function. We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.”

    The reins of power need to be removed from the geldings of the political world.

    Trump bashes the Special counsel and Mueller pretty much weekly, if not daily, so is his plan to just let Mueller go for his entire 8 years of his presidency? I love Trump but this Special Counsel is making him look weak as hell. The dude is the chief executive and can’t even take back his DOJ. Maybe Whitaker is his plan, but Trump got out played big time. Muellers mission has been accomplished long ago.

      The President was fooled, not out-played. Jeff Sessions is the genesis of the Mueller debacle and he was its primary enabler until he was summarily fired, an action that was not politically possible during the extended period of chaos created by Mueller prior to the midterm elections.

      The President is brilliant, patriotic, and heroic in genuinely trying to MAGA, but he is neither omniscient in his wisdom nor infallible in his judgement.

      IMO, the appointment of Sessions as AG will be viewed by presidential historians as one of the most significant political mistakes ever made.

    SD:

    “All prior witness transcripts remain concealed as the GOP turns over power to the allies of the witnesses. Many who have followed the details are frustrated, and with little to no progress within the DOJ/FBI investigation(s) there is an understandable sentiment we have once-again been played. [Fast-n-Furious; IRS; Benghazi; Clinton Emails and now the abuses by the DOJ and FBI. All of it covered-up by the same can-kicking process]”

    This is a clear, concise, cogent statement that is also prescient. The deep state so broadly comprises the fabric of our government and both political parties that the President, despite his heroic, individual efforts, will not likely be successful in defeating it.

    The years of successfully stalling, obfuscating, and derailing congressional investigations into the systemic corruption and criminality that pervade our government will be extended indefinitely when the new Congress scuttles the work done by a few patriots the past two years.

    Moreover, the election results in the House will both enable and embolden the deep state to flourish in its determined commitment to harass and undermine the President in all ways possible.

    The best we can hope for during the next two years is congressional gridlock while confirmation of conservative judges and SCOTUS nominees continues.

    Trump can save the situation by calling Whitaker into the oval office Monday and asking him if he is indicting Hillary on Tuesday or Wednesday? Ditto for Comey, Lynch, and Bill Clinton. Further, ask him to Prosecute IN COURT, no plea bargains.
    If Whitaker has no answer, call him in on Tuesday and ask about Wednesday’s Indictments.
    Pressure, pressure.
    Trump today says he’s ready to “Shut down the Government” over full funding for the Wall. Let’s hope so, but;
    IF Trump drops the ball on Restoring the Rule of Law, we are done for.

    Name a new acting AG. Someone like Jason Chaffetz or…? who knows exactly what documents and information he is looking for that the DOJ has refused to turn over. As AG he can force any DOJ agency (FBI, ATF or DEA) to turn over information they have refused to. Terminate anyone who is obstructing his request. Then forward the information to either the house, senate or find the few people left in the FBI with balls and a moral compass to execute a proper investigation. Investigate Uranium One, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, IRS, and Clinton emails.Try to have all executed as FBI investigations to keep the incoming Democratic house from tainting the investigation. Keep it away from Swalwell. Dirt on Mueller is a bonus. If Mueller is implicated in another investigation that could be problematic for him and not considered interfering with an investigation. He would then cut a deal he is not going to take a fall for anyone.
