DOJ Wants Details of Mysterious FBI Raid on Protected IG Whistleblower Kept Secret – Target of Raid Says “Police State”…

An interesting legal development (full pdf below) in the aftermath of the mysterious FBI raid on protected FBI whistleblower Nate Cain. [Backstory]  The DOJ wants the details behind the search warrant to remain under seal, and the whistleblower target of that warrant -who was not arrested- is accusing the DOJ-FBI of being a police state:

[Tweet Link – – Daily Caller Story Link]

Something about this entire story is just not adding up.  The whistleblower came forward to the IG with information about how the FBI covered-up for the Clintons during investigations about the Clinton Foundation.  The IG gave the whistleblower protection, confirmed anonymity, and passed on his documentary evidence to the Senate Intelligence Committee (SSCI).   Then the whistleblower gets raided.

From the outset the DOJ and IG claims don’t match the DOJ and FBI conduct.   Even Senator Chuck Grassley has questions.

Here’s the DOJ motion today to keep everything under seal:

.

This is the letter from Senator Grassley to Inspector General Horowitz.  Notably Grassley wasn’t asking FBI Director Chris Wray for the answers:

(Link to Grassley Letter)

Something sketchy is going on in the background of this story, it just doesn’t make sense.  Why raid the confirmed and IG protected whistleblower?

A possible explanation is that corrupt FBI and DOJ officials, the ones at risk from the evidence provided by the whistleblower, wanted to know what evidence Nate Cain had against them; what was their exposure; and the raid was an effort to protect their interests. That’s the alarming possibility.

However, if that cover-up or target motive is true  – the brazen nature of the operation is stunning; and the corrupt officials must really believe they are so above the law they can act without any concern. Obviously Nate Cain appears to be pointing in that direction.

Yikes.

    If that is not obstruction of justice, and therefore prosecutable all on it’s own, then what is?

        Maybe the FBI thought they would find some other type of incriminating evidence to shut this whistleblower down. I am sure they checked his browser history and read his daughter’s diary just looking for some usable dirt. And, if they found one tiny scrap of evidence that was not turned over, they could still charge him.

      rosenstain and mueller are two of the individuals who would be at risk from Nate Cain’s information because mueller was the FBI director at that time and rosenstain was an up and comer who ran the manaforte investigation at that time. Then of course there is eric ‘my ppl’ holder who signed off on the sale of uranium one, clinton herself, and six other CFIUS board members that also happened to work for the clinton’s famly sluch fund foundation, and one other individual, all of whom were obama administration stooges.

      Yeah, there is a LOT that they want to be forewarned about in the information submitted to the IG, hence the raid.

    • Clintonistas still left in the DOJ and FBI. They must be scared shitless to pull such an obviously brazen open act of defiance. The whistle blower must really have the goods on the Clinton’s and perhaps a few well placed uniparty and Cabalists.

      There is one other possibility, though remote, and we would love it. This could be another barium meal. Remember that oddly there were TWO reported whistle blowers (John Solomon), the 2nd no one supposedly knew about. What if this one was “leaked” to have THE goods to see who would jump the shark (which they did). All the while, the 2nd one is the one with “the REAL goods”. Conspiracy I know, but, there are some odd things going on and odd exposures. REAL panic has set in in some factions of the Cabal (DOJ, FBI, Comey), even though the MSM are preaching Trump is through. I bet we are in for some “interesting” reveals before January and the new House get in.

      For whatever the reason the Dems and Cabal are NOT happy, acting even more bat shit crazy than normal, and some are in full fledged panic. Some are saber rattling (Nadler and Schiff), some are whistling past the grave yard (Pelosi), and some are conspiciously QUIET (Schumer and Watters) WHY? One would think, if one listened to the MSM, that all was WELL for the Dems, and happy days were here again. They SURE don’t act like it though do they.

      Let’s hope the lyin’ jackals in the media are treated to video coverage of FBI Director Wray arriving at the White House today for an unscheduled meeting with President Trump. Looking rather drawn and not answering questions.

      Until Rosenstein is gone, Wray is gone, and every FBI/DOJ embed sympathetic with cover-up’s and corruption are gone, we’re going to be pedaling a bicycle with no chain in cleaning up our justice system. Local law enforcement is doing a stellar job as our President pointed out last week in Kansas City. The “Safe Neighborhoods” initiative needs to be applied also at the FBI, starting with Wray. Whistleblower deserve protection. Unless they know too much, then their homes get raided and their testimonies sealed?

      From those with impressive titles and swanky offices, to the building maintenance crews, to the IT staffs, to the food service workers, to the receptionists, to window washers and toilet scrubbers, anybody that puts Uniparty and self interest above truth, law and order has gotta go.

      President Trump has put a “You’re Fired” directive in place at the VA for anyone not doing their jobs with integrity and in accordance with law and established policies. The same needs to be applied across every federal agency and department, with no one, including FBI/DOJ/White House Staff/Congressional aides being above the law. For starters, fire Wray and the entirety of his support staff and appoint Sheriff David A. Clarke as acting Director of the FBI.

      Jeff Sessions certainly leaves behind quite a legacy. Nothing in terms of a more ethical, Constitutionally adherent DOJ is evident. Same goes for Wray.

      All this is occurring during a Republican President’s term. All this is occurring while a Republican majority in both Houses of Congress have held reins for two years–even longer for the House. Perish the thought of what awaits when the Democrat Party, aka, Antifa Mobs, control more than just the House of Rep’s.

      When draining swamps of polluted water from plumbing in our homes, we may start out by pouring some type of anti-clogger into the smelly mess in hopes that eventually it’ll clear without more drastic measures. In solving the worst clogs, however, it takes a major roto routering to get the job done. Are we there yet?

  8. The fact that the docs went through Warner @ SSCI right in front of the raid should tell you all you need to know, IMO. The fact that the IG did not withhold the docs from the SSCI knowing they’re basically traitors is worrisome.

    I agree with other posters that this is a power play because they don’t have the AG boxed-in anymore.

    Just like the radical left-wing activists, when they can’t get what they want through elections they turn to violence and intimidation tactics.

    Its going to be very weird next year with the SSCI and the Senate Judiciary committee operating in the same chamber running opposing investigations. ‘Through the looking glass’ is my new theme for what we’re seeing. Parallel alphabet agencies and parallel legislative chambers. Trump on one side, Obama/DeepState on the other, but occupying the same real estate.

Could be some cracks in the facade that can be exploited by an investigator – if there are any out there that are interested.

    …….
    This is nothing new, really. In 1991 Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas called out the vicious attacks on him, saying, “This is a circus. It’s a national disgrace. And from my standpoint, as a black American, it is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves, to do for themselves, to have different ideas, and it is a message that unless you kowtow to an old order, this is what will happen to you. You will be lynched, destroyed, caricatured by a committee of the U.S. Senate rather than hung from a tree.”
    ……..

    Justice Thomas pretty much nailed the technique that is widely used to suppress speech. It seems pertinent here.

    Why in God’s Holy Name would IG Horowitz give the whistleblower’s confidential information to the most corrupt committee in all of the Congress.

It was immediately leaked to the New York Times. Of course, that FISA warrant had a couple mistakes in it that led to the discovery of the leaker.

    Could it be that the Senate Intelligence Committee was given another chance to help reveal the depth of the Swamp? Could it be that members of the Senate Intelligence Committee are under surveillance by the White Hats? Did the Senate Intelligence Committee leak the identity of the whistleblower to the FBI?

Unless I’m wrong, they can now say it’s an active investigation, which stops the IG from looking into it. It would also allow them to use their standard “I can’t comment on an active investigation “ tactic that stymies any attempt from congressional investigators to get any details, etc. It would definitely send a signal to anyone looking for whistleblower protections.

    This is exactly what happens when government criminality is not prosecuted. Left unchallenged, the deep state actors will commit more and more crimes. And do it right out in the open. The only deterrent is swift and harsh punishment. Instead, we let them retire with lavish pensions. If I were to rob a bank, and there were no consequences, I guarantee you I would be robbing banks as a full time job.

    This has got to stop. If it doesn’t, our Republic is dead. And we will be nothing more than slaves, begging for scraps as our overlords feast like kings.

      Oldcowboy;
      “Active Investigation” would prevent Congressional Committees from investigation, not sure it prevents I.G. from investigating.
      He is charged with investigating “waste, fraud, abuse incompetence or malfeasance”, not sure there is anything preventing him from looking into active investigations, particularly investigations of an individual the I.G. extended whistleblower status to.

        Either Huber & Horowitz are going to wow us as promised by 17, or our President hasn’t been effective. It is not acceptable to have rogue agencies running amok, defying the constitutionally elected chief executive. It must be stopped and punished.

  24. Upon further consideration, since this search & seizure happened after the SSCI found out about Mr. Cain’s revelations, Biggy Rat ( Burr) and Itchy Brother (Warner) must have gotten nervous and ordered the hit. The slugs in the swamp are panicking, and I am sure they left a trail…

      There is an ongoing criminal investigation. That was stated again and again in that motion to unseal the warrant. I suppose it depends on what exactly is being investigated. It could have been, “hey there is all this evidence of serious crimes and the FBI did nothing” It could be.. hmmmmmm
      I am not so sure anyone cares about Nate, but what if there were discussions about silencing him… that would be a crime… just thinking out loud, but yes, I could see that as a possibility.
      The reason I see things differently is that there was absolutely no effort to conceal any of this.. not any… This is really strange.

  28. Could it be nothing more than the beginning of a narrative development against a whistle-blower? Only a sinister person would have his home raided, right?(see Manafort and Cohen as reference points.) Remember, the deep state counts on the average voter having the attention span of a fruit fly. It could be as simple as this.

    Another possible explanation, though equally as bizarre, is that the good guys suspect the WB’s information was watered down after it got into the system. If that’s the case they would need the mother lode to do a comparison, and depending on who they couldn’t trust within the system, may have had to grab it in an unorthodox way.

    Is the answer a simple one? The DoJ and FBI didn’t know what Cain turned over to IG Horowitz. And now they do. Is the subject of the evidence, the Clinton’s, the motive for the surprise “we answer to no one” raid? An alarming possibility? But one that screams motive.

    When we understand how Deep State operates, what it has to lose, what it’s goals are, what it does historically when cornered, exposed, locked up, then recognition of who the individuals are will be easier. But knowing Who the Officers in the war are isn’t knowing their plan.

    Such an elaborate network of transparant coverups, rehearsed forgetfulness, faces distorted by hatred and unveiled threats, suggests the prize for allegiance is a plan so wide in scale, so illegal and shocking it had to be hidden. Motivated by grandiose seduction and promises; secured by a terrifying threat of lifelong imprisonment? The sooner we understand the motivation, the plan, the prizes for lying, the better we’ll fight. I believe Trump knows but clearly can’t gush the Truth because they’d have nothing to lose.

    Disbelief of the sheer enormity of corruptions is a veil we need to rip. Who ordered the raid may extend the game of hide and go seek. If I’m correct, the purpose of the raid was to know what Grassley has so the persons named in the evidence can prepare to be investigated or they can start accusing and suing and investigating people to shut them up. They defuse and emasculate the committee and courts and Trump. Documents, emails, texts, may be destroyed before they’re requested. The defense for doing so? The evidence requested wasn’t thought significant, was personal, outdated, was safely destroyed with a hammer. Regretfully they might add, before they were called to testify. We should understand how they fight by now. But why? It’s certainly not ideology or “partisan” politics, or Row vs Wade, or immigration. These are components to get to their goal. They aren’t the goal. The FBI raid is the tool to spy on Grassley’s committee without being imprisoned for hacking a protected whistleblower or spying on Senators without a FISA warrant.

        Some are evil mercenaries but few have any courage to fight in the open like a Jomsviking. The likes of the Clintons, Soros, Holder, Comey etc etc are conniving rats – minons. Bought, bribed, blackmailed – many simply sold their souls and now cannot extricate themselves.

        All seem to share one thing with their masters. They believe we are subjects – inferior life – annoying rubes who they may need, but must be ruled over – controlled. Self governance is their nightmare. Freemen convicted to defend our inalienable rights, their greatest fear.

        Trump has taken his fight to their masters – on a global scale. America is the last stand.

        Their masters are the same who have plagued mankind through recorded history. The ruling class has taken the many faces of benevolence and terror throughout history, but its intent has never changed. To control and rule over mankind – to decide who lives and dies – to decide who wins and who loses. They do not believe in God, they believe they are gods.

        These rulers have allied in a design for global rule – global governance – globalism. They intend to end all sovereignty but their own. Understanding globalism – the evil simplicity of their design, puts these events and henchmen in context.

    Nate Cain’s identity was supposed to be protected. At least three entities knew his identity: The IG, The Office of Special Counsel (OSC), and his attorney. One of them, the IG revealed Cain’s identity to the SSCI.

    By the way, the OSC is the primary agency responsible for protecting whistle blowers and for some reason has not been mentioned in the media. And, that’s where Cain should have gone first.

    That’s IT – not a huge number of people that could have leaked Cain’s name to the FBI. The FBI was NOT in the original loop.

    It all stinks to high heaven.
