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.

      So……well……..They should have all been nuked before…..

      I.E. Have stated it on numerous occasions……should have de-classified the documents wejen we had the power……..

      But who amongst us could have imagined the levels of voter fraud on the National level.

      Sure a few got caught……but they accomplished their mission…..

      And now, As per Sundance’s article, they are returning to the same methods as per the Obama years……

      i.E. “Hey, we are holding investigations”…….”But nothing can be done because we don’t control the House……..or the Presidency……..or Rinse and repeat…

      Dunno……But my solution …….in my limited capacity is to be agressive.

      First: Whitaker may be the key. Stop the Mueller investigation. So stop the investigation. It will be a fight, but it would be worth it.

      Second: The House is full of criminals…..Start charging them….put them back on their heels…….Flaunt their criminal actions..

      If the House and all the others are going to prevent our President’s agenda, may as well throw the grenade in and make some arrests……

      Dunno…….Mueller probably needs to go first…….but if “something is not done soon the “dithering will cost us 2020 and we will never get it back

      Just sayin…….may be off base on some stuff..

          Whitaker’s prior company is under FBI investigation. Whitaker won’t do anything. Who would been you have the full force of the fbi – capable of made stuff up, exageratioed, twist and turn. Any discrepance can lead to charged of lying. Whitaker already had a chat with Lindsey Graham saying Mueller won’t be touched.

          Huber probably started out with good intentions – just like Lausch. But it looks like both were shut down. Victoria says her client on U1 was never contacted for any info and no info regarding if they are investigating at all. Still looking into whether they will investigate. Favorite tactic- chicken to say no be they don’t want to but know they really should.

          I am hoping he has the strength to hold the scales of Justice high and not have them dropped like the balls have been dropped in the past. Time to step up and defend the AMERICAN PEOPLE. Enough is enough with caving in to what the Dims want (and if one more person tells me that that pink-hat-wearing tall guy is a Republican I think I will scream).

        Not off base at all. Sessions rolling over like a dog has put President Trump at a serious disadvantage. At some point you have to start killing snakes. Or you’re going to get bit. There’s a lot of risk in getting aggressive. But I think that’s far outweighed by remaining passive and getting consumed by them. Something has to give. This whole project could end in 24 months. Now the good news. President Trump is a counter puncher. The sound and fury being thrown at him right now is going to be tough to sustain. He still holds all the cards. And he’s not known for taking punishment lying down. He seems very serious lately, almost down cast. Almost. I think that’s his game face. Let’s get ready to rumble.

        First post launched…may or may not show…so a repeat of sorts.

        Spot on!!!

        President Trump and Whitaker should totally engage broad based scorched earth. Throw D-rats back on their heels. Keep them off balance and trying to catch up.

        Release documents without redaction (FISA, 302s, text messages, etc.) Expose criminal behavior to stun the MSM and slow their vitriol sure to be launched at President Trump and his administration.

        Fire Mueller. Written report in seven days to Whitaker. With witnesses at firing ask him if he has evidence to support an indictment against President Trump, yes or no. If yes, provide proof immediately (minutes with witnesses observing him & his people. Secure all of Mueller and his people government computers, cell phones and files. Pursue Mueller and company bad behavior behind the scenes.

        Known good guys in DOJ/FBI pursue DOJ/FBI bad actors (present and past), Clinton Crime Family, Fusion, U1, Brennan, Clapper, Brits & Aussie governments (did not act as allies should and must be held accountable), who ever in Hussein administration supported the criminal actions against Candidate Trump, President elect and President Trump. No doubt so many more.

        Needs to happen soon. Just before or during the holidays good by me. Arrests Thanksgiving day at 4AM good by me. More to be thankful for!

        Wish I were as optimistic as I am hopeful in these matters.

            Sen. Lindsey Graham met with Whitaker yesterday (or 2 days ago) and looked rather sullen, indicated under questioning in the hallway from what seemed to be just a single reporter, that the Mueller investigation would continue on its natural course or something ridiculous like that. Dunno what’s going on. Graham seemed both (a) relieved to be able to inform the press the Mueller investigation was not being terminated, and (b) very sad. I was disappointed.

          Yup, I’d agree, gotta do something constructive with the anger, no matter what its temperature. No use unless it motivates us to move the ball forward in some way. Ask someone who’s worked in the office of a Rep or Sen in DC, they get all kinds of messages or in-person visits from constituents. They notice thoughtful, rational, logical opinions, and if they get enough such messages from voters it does have an effect.

          If all deplorables were in the habit of speaking up in that way it would be really hard to ignore, even in the “blue” states, because after all Demo-leftists are less likely to have rational ideas to express. I’ve written my elected officials pretty often even though in my district and state each of them is a POS. But even if they seldom agree with me or vote like I tell ’em to, I feel better for having told ’em what I really think, though I do it with “civility”, of course. 🙂

    This is little consolation for millions of us that would like to see at least a “little” justice. However, someday there will be a day of reckoning for all.

    Romans 14:11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. 12 So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.

    Human government is a God-ordained institution that was implemented after the Flood. Governmental leaders will not only have to account for their personal lives – they will have to give account of how they administered their responsibilities in human government.

    Hebrews 13:17 Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.

    We are merely trying to “hold the fort” down here while we await the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. First “in the air” for his church (1 Thess 4:17) and then 7+ years later to return to the earth to set up his Kingdom (Zech. 14:4)

    Hebrews 10:31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

        7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.

        In reality, our opposition is spiritual wickedness that is behind “the children of disobedience”

        Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

        The gospel of grace (1 Cor. 15:3,4) is the only thing that can break the bondage that they are in. Logic, facts and reason can never do it. That should be painfully apparent.

        2Corinthians 4:3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
        4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

        Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

    What’s frustrating is this is happening under Trumps Administration. It’s understandable to see how the past scandals have gone away with nobody brought to justice because rot was Obama’s DOJ. Is Trump really going to let Mueller just take the DOJ away from the presidency for his entire first 4 years? This is INSANE! Let’s be honest here folks, the special counsel is a shadow DOJ by design and is monitoring Trump and everyone close, every single day, giving tips to the globalist and every other piece of scum. 4 years this special Counsel has Nuetered Trumps DOJ. And everyone is telling Trump to just let it ride out. It’s going to last for the next 4-6 years.

      Muellers had two years to investigate Russia collusion and has only come up with some BS process crimes unrelated to the 2016 election.nHis whole investigation has been a farce in one act. Sessions is now long gone and Whitaker is in, so why not show some strength and have Whitaker give Mueller a dead line to close up his investigation. Release the FISA docs unredacted. Whitaker can convene a grand jury[maybe one is already seated?}, and present the evidence against the whole motley Obama/ Clinton cartel and let the Grand Jury bring forth indictments and set trial dates for early 2019. The Dems will go bananas but they will be put on the defensive and if there are convictions of top level perps, the press will become unhinged. It would be great political theater to watch the Dems squirm and lie, and die by their own sword.

        Joe DiGenova at 13:54:

        “I know that there is a grand jury underway. Testimony is being taken about Strzok, Page, McCabe, and others involved in this case. And the reason we know it is that James Baker, the former general counsel of the FBI, has turned state’s evidence and is fully cooperating with the Inspector General and with the federal grand jury. I can assure you, Mr. Comey has been very silent in recent weeks and the reason is very simple. He knows he’s going to be indicted.”

        That was said in September.

      Judicial watch is one of the few lights out there.

      “Justice Department lawyers for the State Department defended Clinton’s refusal to answer certain questions and argued for the continued secrecy of the deposition videos.”

      …and that statement proves how embedded the marxist resistance within the DOJ is.

    Those who opposed slavery (Whigs) in the 1850s realized that their party was great at opposing slavery in principle, but not so much in practice. In the end they decided that the only way to fix it was to create a new party. in 1854 they created a new party (Republican Party) with opposition to slavery as its founding principle. The people abandoned the decrepit and corrupt Whig party en-masse, joining to the new party that would actually act on what it said. The Whig party disappeared quickly thereafter.

The law makers have shown themselves to be impident or corrupt as well. So our government is effectively dysfunctional and getting more so, as time passes.

        It follows, that no-one should be surprised to learn that the members of the coup are not being prosecuted.
