Report: U.S. Attorney John Huber Expected To Testify to House Oversight Subcommittee December 5th…

Interesting report from The Hill today quoting an interview with Representative Mark Meadows.  According to the report U.S. Attorney John Huber is expected to testify to the House Subcommittee on Oversight and Reform about an investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

(Via The Hill) Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) said Tuesday that House Republicans plan to hear testimony on Dec. 5 from the prosecutor appointed by former Attorney General Jeff Sessions to probe alleged wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation.

Meadows, who is chairman of the House Oversight Subcommittee on Government Operations, told Hill.TV’s “Rising” that it’s time to “circle back” to U.S. Attorney General John Huber’s investigation with the Justice Department into whether the Clinton Foundation engaged any improper activities.

“Mr. [John] Huber with the Department of Justice and the FBI has been having an investigation – at least part of his task was to look at the Clinton Foundation and what may or may not have happened as it relates to improper activity with that charitable foundation, so we’ve set a hearing date for December the 5th,” he told Hill.TV during an interview on Wednesday.

Meadow’s said the committee plans to delve into a number of Republicans concerns surrounding the foundation, including whether any tax-exempt proceeds for personal gain and whether the Foundation complied with IRS laws.

Sessions appointed Huber last year to work in tandem with the Justice Department to look into conservative claims of misconduct at the FBI and review several issues surrounding the Clintons. This includes Hillary Clinton’s ties to a Russian nuclear agency and concerns about the Clinton Foundation.  (read more)

Little is known of the original instructions by former AG Jeff Sessions to U.S. Attorney John Huber.  Prior to May 2018, many people -including myself- hoped he was brought in to review the unlawful conduct within the DOJ and FBI that was surfacing as an outcome of congressional oversight and IG reviewed evidence.  Unfortunately, as the IG report(s) were released in April and June 2018, those hopes were diminished.

Interestingly, the framework of the article today that outlines his upcoming appearance is written around the politics of the investigation of the Clinton review and not the legal aspects therein.  This could be a troubling indication because: (a) Huber wouldn’t be able to testify about an ongoing criminal investigation; and (b) this framework would infer DOJ officials (above Huber) have made a determination -or agreed with his determination- that no legal liability is possible within the matters Huber reviewed.

Of course, that’s just my initial take on the way this is all positioned – and not intended to deflate anyone who was hoping John Huber would generate some prosecutorial angle within a multitude of investigations he was possibly reviewing.

From the way the outline of Huber’s appearance is structured, it appears the extent of his investigative responsibility was limited to a review of matters related to Hillary Clinton that surfaced as an outcome of other inquiry – including matters reviewed by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz as they related to Hillary Clinton.

Common sense and basic DOJ practice would then indicate: if Huber is testifying to congress he is not likely holding any indictments for material related to discussion within his testimony.

It looks like Huber testifies on December 5th, then quietly exits the overall picture.

It does not look like Mr. Huber was reviewing anything within “spygate” or the FISA abuse; and also did not likely have any involvement in the Andrew McCabe DOJ legal review and DC-based grand jury matters relating to Andrew McCabe.

Of course, I could be entirely mistaken in my analysis.

    Whether the evil ones are held to account in this life or not …
    Our eyes are open.
    Is that not worth anything to the commenters complaining here?
    The left has spent millions and millions to distort reality and manipulate our thinking, while averting and perverting the law.
    And yet here we are embracing the truth over the lies.
    What is the value of knowing the truth? What is the value of this newfound currency?
    They want to shut down the truth and erect in place more lies.
    Our hearts and minds must be pretty important to the evil ones’ plans.
    And yet here we are, refusing to swallow the lies.
    Is that not worth anything to the commenters complaining here?
    Maybe we don’t know the value of what we possess?

    I never thought Huber was anything but window dressing, a head fake, a false trail. (Shrugs). I really don’t think he probably has anything to testify about at this juncture. That is, if we are really dealing with a genius as POTUS.

      Undercover Huber was prolly invented to deceive “POTUS”

      Who ever on Trumps “team” convinced Trump to not release his own report on the CrowdStrike allegations long ago deserves big buck rewards from the CrowdStrike and like industries. Trump was bamboozled big on that one. Also endangered American security by not highlighting how these “Cozy Bear” -like finding teams are money scams. The self-interest of the private intel industry in pursuing Russia or whoever is left unimagined.

      Trump really blew it.

      Not that everyone really on his side wasn’t telling him that all along. But remember when he sided early with Paul Ryan? Says it all.

        Your premise (all of it) relies on the “big baby man, clueless buffoon Trump model”. Which the opposition fake news ran with for the early months of Trump’s Presidency. Until he pulled the North Korea diplomacy rabbit from hat, which immediately showed that narrative always was just a pathetic joke.

        In this regard then, your too are pushing a silly, child-like narrative already proven to be a poor propaganda/’smear campaign. In fact I will go so far as to say I think you’re a pretty obvious troll/bot clown. who lurks here and at times inserts your brand of propaganda poison.

      Sadly I have to agree. I did have hope in John Huber – coming from outside the Beltway and from Utah – a state whom I usually have held in high regards relating to the support of the Constitution, Rule of Law. However – it appears we just have another “seasoned obedient dark state” emissary. I don’t think any of these corrupt, seditious people will ever serve any time for their hellacious acts – but I believe there is a high authority – who they won’t be able to sluff-off what they have done to the greatest nation on earth. Then, I wouldn’t want to be in their shoes.

      If Team Hillary starts saying “Ivanka did it too!” it could be a sign they know indictments are coming down for Hillary.

      OTOH the Ivanka story could just be the New York Times brushing off old stories for filler.

      The biggest threat truth faces is not Hillary but the private intelligence industry and their hamster wheel reports and work like that of CrowdStrike. One big reason Mueller was put in, to protect the chummy and lucrative arrangement threatened by CrowdStrike worse than usual work product. Even the DNC later fired CrowdStrike.

      • I think the Ivanka story is related to the fight over Whitaker. They want him recused so Rosey is still in charge. They want this badly. Otherwise Whitaker might demand Mueller finish up and the Dems can’t have that. They’re planning to use Mueller for another 2 years. So the message to PDJT is that they will go after Ivanka if Whitaker doesn’t recuse.

    The hammer is about to drop. I don’t agree that the can will be kicked down the road as the above illustration implies. Mr. Huber possesses more than any of us realize and what he has could easily lead to criminal prosecution. After all, calling in a prosecutor and telling him not to prosecute is a silly idea in my estimation. I am hoping for the worst – for the traitors that is.

    The old adage “Crime doesn’t pay” still holds. Criminals will be called before judges on earth and those who die in their sins will face the judge of all judges. The Biblical law of reaping and sowing also applies here. I believe the time has come for traitors to reap what they have sown as well as their co-conspirators across the globe. Justice may be slow, but it is inevitable.

    I have to believe that all patriots attending the CTH are ready to see some action that will be strong enough to bring down our enemies and enable the President to fulfill his promises to do what he needs to do to make America great again. President Trump did promise us a nice Christmas gift.

    As an observation, I can’t be the only one reviewing this thread and wondering at all the commentators with names we have not read before?

    I may be waiting in vain, and perhaps I have misplaced my faith, but I continue to believe, based upon abundant evidence of multiple extremely serious crimes, that PDJT is not going to let the
    conspiring seditionists escape justice.

    Those of us here who believe in our republic and the rule of law are not going to abide a conscious decision to ignore the facts and the law. Based upon my measure of this President as a man, I can not imagine he is not going to employ his executive authority to achieve justice.

    If I am wrong, a whole lot of people who believe they have power had best be extremely careful.

    One way or another, justice is coming. I continue to expect the provider of that justice will be President Donald J. Trump.

    If I am incorrect, those of us who have relied on our law and system of governance to redress grievance will be unbound.

    Our supposed betters ought to carefully contemplate what could be the consequence if people decide that justice will be achieved via another means.

    Bongino had a hopeful take on this today, which posits that the story simultaneously floated in the MSM about “Trump ordering inquiries into Clinton and Comey” was hugely preemptive in nature, to the effect that stuff is coming, that this Huber-Congressional interview is not random or a nothing burger. That to me made sense, since I could not understand the “why” of this story, which does not have much if any substance, suddenly showing up on CNN et al. Add to that the sudden attack on Ivanaka for doing absolutely nothing wrong with her personal emails (unlike HRC, no classified information) and it adds up to a coordinated campaign by the Dems and their MSM cohorts to “poison the well” in advance of these revelations. So I’ll keep the home fires burning for now.

    BTW, witnesses and testimony can be sealed in cases that result in sealed indictments so just because we have not heard of key figures giving testimony to Huber doesn’t mean they haven’t.

    How can Huber say anything to Congress other than “no comment” about any pending criminal investigation? Although hearing him say just that would be satisfying in and of itself.
