Sunday Talks: Rep John Ratcliffe Discusses Mueller, Ohr, and Evidence Against Corrupt DOJ Officials…

An important interview between Judiciary Committee member John Ratcliffe (R – TX) as he discusses the likely motive behind why Mueller decided to talk out against the Buzzfeed report.  Representative Ratcliffe points to the testimony of AG nominee William Barr as the annoying pebble that made Mueller’s team stop to shake out their shoe.

Additionally, in an outline to highlight the corrupt abuse of the Rosenstein/Mueller probe, Ratcliffe outlines Bruce Ohr’s testimony and exposes a larger issue: if Mueller was honorable, when he became aware of the scheme he would have dropped his inquiry.

.

Fox News did not post the second part of that interview. However, we located a secondary source below:

At the 34:00 minute point; Ratcliffe and Bartiromo continue their discussion. (Prompted):

    “Honor” is an unknown concept among Leftists, especially among those involved in a coup d’etat.

    What they understand only is: the Will to Power and that the Will to Power depends upon one concept only, that the end justifies the means.

    The end does not justify the means in every case, of course, but for Leftists, it has replaced all morality.

They can wait him out on regulation and normal legislative matters by using their considerable influence to reverse. There is no coming back from 911 Truth…

            There is no reporting or evidence (that I’m aware of) that Whitaker took the “bull by the horns” approach to the Mueller investigation and benched RR. (And even if he did, I’d doubt that RR’s minions would actually comply)

            Barr seemed to indicate during his hearing that he would take that exact approach even going as far as saying he’d tell the DOJ ethics folk reviewing his role to go pound sand if they recommended his recusal.

      Given his background, I expect Barr to perform a high wire balancing act to try and put the Mueller abuse to bed without any incriminating statements about PDJT, but also to simultaneously protect the Swamp politicians, DOJ, and FBI institutions.

      I personally am not too excited or anticipating an AG Barr to initiate criminal prosecutions which result in convictions of the black hats. If he is able to de-fuse the Dimms’ blatantly transparent attempts at falsely impeachng the president by (Barr) concluding there was no obstruction or any crime committed, that’s the best I am hoping for. Anything better than that will be an unexpected bonus.

        You sum the situation up correctly, imho. GWB (43) and others have decided that “Spygate” and the other revelations are now too dangerous to be allowed to go on–so Barr is on deck to shut it down.

        That said, these folks desire most of all to protect the “institutions” of government (corrupt or not). So a little bleach applied to the most obvious stains but we are still carrying around stained garments in D.C. It was ever so I think, but even worse now because the left and their millennial followers politicize everything and know not only no morality, but embrace nihilism.

        Very scary times, thank goodness that I believe that God is omniscient, omnipresent and all powerful (whether he saves us further, is yet to be seen. The USA may be at a moment like those in pre-flood times).

        There has been rampant speculation on all sides about what Mueller is and is not and particularly here about what he is covering up.

        I only know this empirically 1) he has not leaked stuff like the FBI was all about doing [so in my mind that was an improvement on this process] 2) he hired bad people and it is unclear whether he hired them or if they were foisted upon him but it is evident to me that they have helped steer the ship of the special counsel wherever it has gone and have some influence upon Mueller 3) it remains to be seen how much influence they have had on him and the proof will be in the report that gets written and the manner in which it gets circulated 4) Mueller knows or should know by now that Strzok and Page were bad seeds as his investigation started and he got rid of them – it is unclear whether he did that on his own or if he was forced to do so 5) by the time he fired them it seems that Mueller had or thought he had enough evidence to continue his work and investigations 6) we are not able to tell whether what he has continued work on is “targeting” Trump or not and Mueller has refused to confirm or deny that it does (again this a big improvement over the rumors that were swirling about when the FBI had this where they were using leaks like weapons). 7) that the first public comment comes 18 months into this to shoot down the Buzzfeed story is remarkable that it was the first time such public comments were made 8) there are plenty of angry people on both sides of this that whatever Mueller does or does not do it will not make anyone happy and he probably rightly deserves that treatment

        Finally, I am hoping that he will do honorable things that overcome #3 above and #4 above and I am of the opinion that the “truth” of the matter will lay in the middle of where the Impeach Trump crowd and the “Trump is a Saint or at least didn’t do anything illegal” crowds have camped out. Investigators by their nature will always know way more than the public does in these types of situations – cuz we as an American populace are not even supposed to know an investigation is happening or that in and of itself gets turned into a weapon. I think Mueller knows that and I am hoping that he knows the world is watching and that what he does or does not do has the potential to rip our country apart at the seams. I hope that he takes his time and does whatever he is going to do “right” and carefully with that pressure in mind. If there is honor in him he knows this and he knows the power he wields and does not take it lightly. The lack of public statements gives me hope that this is the case.

    I posted a couple days ago in a different thread, but it’s probably more relevant to this story…..

    I view the hiring of Bill Barr as AG, as the ultimate use of leverage against Mulehead, since Bill and Bob are such “good friends”.

    Do you remember the part in the movie,The Godfather 2, during the courtroom scenes?

    In the scene, Vincent Pantangali (Bob Mueller) is about to testify against Michael Corleone (Trump), before he says anything, Corleone bring in Pantangali’s brother (Bill Barr) from Sicily. Upon seeing his brother, Pantangali recants his story, and zips his mouth shut.

    The point of the analogy, is Bob Mueller will not pull any bullsh*t with Bill Barr as AG. The Mulehead investigation (witch hunt) is effectively over.

    I hope this is what’s happening, because we’re in trouble if Barr has ulterior motives.

      I live on Long Island, we have been disproportionally been hit with MS13 members and their criminal activity. All Reps who have districts in Long Island need to be pressured, they are very aware that this is a major problem in their home districts!
      My Senators are unfortunately, Schumer and Gillibrand, yet I’m constantly communicating to them that I want the wall built. My Rep is Kathleen Rice, another Dem. I’ve been sending her Emails, but yesterday, I learned she was a no vote for Pelosi for speaker, so I will be stepping up my correspondence to her. Tom Suozzi, another LI Rep, needs to be pressured, I hear he is starting to distance himself from Pelosi.

    No one at CTH, I’m sure, believes that Mueller is “honorable.” His past record speaks volumes about how dishonorable he truly is. But, right now there’s another reason to for the leftists to keep him in place. And that has to do with Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Steve Grammatico outlined that angle pretty well over at “American Thinker.”

    Dems know they only have to make RBG last until January 1, 2020. After that, McConnell could never persuade his entire caucus to abandon the principle he touted in 2016 that a nomination to the Supreme Court in a presidential election year is inappropriate. There are just too many Uniparty players on the GOP side. Heck, McConnell himself will probably be full of “good-for-the-goose” platitudes.

    If RBG vacates sooner, Pelosi will promptly schedule a vote to launch a formal impeachment inquiry, pre-empting the president’s announcement of any replacement. That could easily pass along party lines. Then, the House Judiciary Committee (Jerrold Nadler) will quickly draw up some ridiculous charges against PDJT. He’s almost promised as much.

    Mueller, Weismann, et.al, will happily feed into the whole, sordid process whatever the Dems need, using whatever tactics or language they call for to get them into 2020.

    It sounds to me like a pretty solid play, and I’ll bet Team Mueller has their part well-rehearsed.

      I couldn’t disagree more with that blog post at AT and the conclusion it draws. First off, Grammatico is presupposing that our very stable genius will just sit back and take all this incoming without firing a single shot. There will be revelations (similar to Ohr’s testimony being leaked) going forward which will increasingly complicate the path laid out by the House Dem’s leadership.

      Those incoming D freshman from Trump districts and the remaining blue dog’s left in the House will have to decide if they want to cut short their careers and follow the radical left playbook in impeaching the POTUS when all of the evidence is pointing towards a criminal coup orchestrated by Barry and Brennan.

      To allow the Dem’s free reign to cover up their own criminality, impeach POTUS based on distortions and outright lies…..thereby costing him an appointment of an additional SCOTUS seat may in fact be their plan – but as Mike Tyson famously said everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.

    IMO the entire Dem DS is in a box…..

    1. We know Nellie Ohr worked for GPS and helped with the Dossier. So if anyone absolutely understands the truthfulness of the Dossier IMO it would be Nellie Ohr.

    2. As we know Nellie Ohr is married to Bruce Ohr the number 4 at DOJ at the time. So it seems highly likely that if Nellie knew then her spouse Bruce also knew and to his credit he is on record as having tried to tell his peers (listed below) in a July 2016 meeting PRIOR to any original FISA submission.

    (FBI – Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page, James Baker, Peter Strzok, Joe Pientka)
    (DOJ – Andrew Weissmann, Bruce Swartz, Zainab Ahmad)

    3. At the time McCabe is the number 2 at the FBI and Weissmann and Ahmad get recruited by Mueller into the SC team in 2017 with Weissmann as Mueller’s number 2 I believe.

    4. So if Nellie knew, and if Bruce knew and he swears under oath that he told the 8 above about the dossier then is it not a stretch to think that Mueller may have also known pretty much at the beginning of the SC creation?

    5. Mueller as the SC lead, reports to Rosenstein, the acting AG due to Session’s recusal following PT’s confirmation. So in 2017 Rosenstein is the top dog overseeing both the DOJ and FBI. Rosenstein is also the person who signed the third FISA extension I believe.

    6. So if Mueller knew in early 2017 was he not obligated to share with Rosenstein before all the FISA extensions took place in 2017? So it begs the question did Rosenstein know and when and if he knew why did he sign the final FISA extension in the summer of 2017 I believe?

    7. But maybe more importantly since the initial FISA was submitted in Fall 2016 and 8 high ranking people in the DOJ and FBI knew the concerns about the dossier but possibly chose not to speak up and thus the dossier gets attached to the initial FISA submission, isn’t that misleading the FISA court and a crime and immediate grounds to terminate the SC?

    So does all this possibly suggest that evidence is now coming out showing that this may have been a frame job all along and the original FISA was to possibly cover tracks and “try to legitimize” the spying on a Presidential candidate from earlier in the year?

    But why did Mueller, assuming he may have known, allow this to continue once the SC was formed? If he knew via Weissmann who was his number 2, wouldn’t Mueller be obligated to speak up especially before all the FISA renewals went forward?

    It would appear, IMO that a squeeze play is in order to get someone who knew, to cop a plea and this whole house of cards could fall.

      Bogey I would add,

      From Ohr’s testimony,

      Ohr met with Steele July 30, 2016.

      “Ohr divulged his first contact with the FBI was on July 31, 2016, when he reached out to then-Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and FBI attorney Lisa Page. He then was referred to the agents working Russia counterintelligence, including Peter Strzok, the now-fired agent who played a central role in starting the Trump collusion probe.”-Solomon reporting.

      Ohr said he met McCabe and Page in McCabe’s office.

      Lisa Page testimony,
      July 5, 2016 FBI Gaeta met Steele in London and became Steele’s FBI handler.
      Page worked for Ohr, her immediate supervisor, for 5 years.
      PAGE HAD NO KNOWLEDGE OF THE “UNVERIFIED MEMOS” UNTIL MID SEPT, 2016.
      PAGE- “AS OF AUGUST 2016 I DON’T KNOW WHO CHRISTOPHER STEELE IS.”

      SO ACCORDING TO LISA PAGE WE ARE TO BELIEVE OHR, A GUY SHE KNOWS WELL, BRIEFS HER AND ANDY MCCABE ABOUT WHAT STEELE TOLD OHR, THE DAY BEFORE, AND OHR NEVER MENTIONS STEELE BY NAME AS THE SOURCE OF THIS IMPORTANT INFORMATION?

      BULLSHIT!

      Remember also that the meeting about the “insurance policy” that was “laid out” in “Andy’s office.” Took place in “early August.”

      What if it actually took place in that July 31 meeting in Andy’s office with Page, McCabe, and Ohr? Ohr says he was put in touch with Strzok, but doesn’t specifically say where or when. What if he was put in touch with Strzok then and there, and they together hatched the “counterintelligence” insurance policy?

      I do not believe some of what Lisa Page said, and I do not believe everything Ohr has said.

      If EVERYTHING that happened prior to 1/20/2017 was (quietly) pardoned, it would be the equivalent of ‘never even happened’.

      To indict and convict these vipers, you’d need to build new cases. Okay. Let them keep rolling. QUIETLY develop the probable cause, obtain the warrants, conduct the surveillance, gather the admissible evidence. All of it. That takes time, particularly if your quarry is wary.

The FBI interviews AFTER the election were intended to assess the level of risk Bruce and Nellie presented to the small group. Nellie’s claim of spousal privilege left Bruce all alone in a sense – or in appearance.

      You don’t interview, process interview… interview again… process some more… interview… process and churn… do another interview… of a guy on your own staff…. without ulterior motives beyond basic information gathering. You are developing a desired work product, not just assembling information. The who, what and why of the work product’s full scope are tbd by us today, but the how and the prime activities involved in the creation of that work product were those 4 interviews.

      The Obama White House knew it was in trouble. They knew these 4 interviews would become a red flag eventually, as we recognize them to be today. They did them anyway, because they had to set a solid framework for the conspiracy’s coverup and anti Trump actions to come, and they needed to understand their exposure and the full data sets existent, and get sworn testimony from the key player handling the data…Ohr… which would also have the handy purpose of locking him into a narrative box.

      I’m glad our host sometimes goes back over some of this old ground. Sometimes things are more clear when you rereview them after a longish period of reflection and other disclosures. Those 4 interviews will tell us a lot. What is asked is important, just as important as the answers. They will be the questions of the guilty, that seems very clear now. It was very clumsy to have conducted them, and it indicates the conspiracy itself was assembled clumsily and the conspirators knew it, and will now be vulnerable to dogged investigation.

    Surely Mueller has access to the congressional testimony of Ohr outlining their being briefed in advance of Crossfire Hurricane.

    Should he not be asking Weissmann and Ahmad, ‘is this true, were you briefed in July 2016 that this was an unreliable political document written by someone who was desparate to stop Trump being elected?’. ‘How can I honestly defend any prosecution in this investigation that you pair have been involved in?

        At the beginning of the Second World War, Koestler was living in the south of France working on Darkness at Noon. After retreating to Paris he was imprisoned by the French as an undesirable alien even though he had been a respected crusader against fascism. Only luck and his passionate energy allowed him to escape the fate of many of the innocent refugees, who were handed over to the Nazis for torture and often execution.

        Scum of the Earth is more than the story of Koestler’s survival. His shrewd observation of the collapse of the French determination to resist during the summer of 1940 is an illustration of what happens when a nation loses its honour and its pride.

    President Trump knew Mueller and Barr are friends; he may not have known how good a friends they are.

    I don’t know that it matters.

    My point is POTUS can’t communicate directly with Mueller.

    But Barr sure can.

    I wonder if that is one of the reasons Barr was chosen.

    Sometimes it’s worth reviewing previous news releases in light of current information. Let’s start with this: Comey, Rosenstein, McCabe and Sally Yates all signed the FISA applications even though Hillary’s fraudulent Russia dossier was used as a pretext to obtain the warrants. Now how is it possible to bypass the Foreign Surveillance Court without even a review.

    Folks need to relook at the wording of Mueller’s so called repudiation of the Buzz Feed article. He said the article was “not accurate”, which is not the same as “not true”. He left wide open the re-emergence of this claim for later use as in use of adjectives “preliminary”, undeveloped”, “premature”, etc. Not that the article has a kernel of truth but there are allot of words that can be used to keep this theme alive leading into the House Committee hearings, where truth is relative.

    Mueller waffled and weasel worded his statement. He was part of this leak and its current aftermath. In my mind the retraction is all part of the operation involving the deployment of this statement more Cohen revelations.

      I would remind you that the official FBI term for lying — and which got McCabe fired just 2 days before he could qualify for retirement — in “lacked candor”.

      When Mueller said “not accurate”, he was saying “pack of lies” 😁

        You know this how??? Mueller is not a member of the FBI, he is a lawyer conducting an assault on the constitution. He is peaking to the media where obfuscation and being ambiguous are coin of the realm. No, he purposely did not say it was a lie.

    That is eaxctly what I said when I heard that Mueller denied the Buzzfeed facts. There is a new sheriff in town. They may think they have control of the People’s House, but we have law & order on our side. They know the hammer is coming down any day now.

    This is also why they put out the b.s. that Rosy was leaving. Rosy don’t get no choice. He’s out the minute Barr is confirmed and it won’t be a minute too soon. Bye-Bye!

    If Barr is the AG with integrity that this Country so desperately needs and President Trump deserves, then mueller is on borrowed time. By speaking out on buzzweed’s story, mueller might think he’s buttering up Barr in which case I hope he’s dead wrong.

    Any thought along the lines of Mueller being honorable is ridiculous. Mueller’s entire purpose as SC was to bury the crimes of the Odumbo admin. It is too obvious given the time in which Mueller has drug this farce out that his mandate was running out the statute of limitations on a host of crimes.

    Imo the only reason Mueller issued a denial statement is because someone (Whitaker likely) whispered into his ear that a leak investigation was going to be opened.

    If Mueller himself does not affirm Barr’s summation for the nation, Dems will jump on that as Trump having inappropriately influenced the outcome and use it to bolster their congressional inquiry. Since that inquiry will not be so much of an inquiry as a 2020 campaign tactic to keep the collusion illusion on the front burner in the press and on Capital Hill (in that order), I won’t be surprised that Barr was major was part of that premeditated scam.

    Mueller’s excuse will be his scope letter.
    “I was authorized to investigate anything. That’s what I did.”

    He sees himself, no doubt, as insulated from all the bad behavior by the scope letter and the fact that he’s “just doing his job”. If there is a FISA warrant issue where the underlying evidence was obtained illegally, or the FISA court was defrauded, or the FBI, CIA, NSA, DOJ, and State Department were acting improperly, he likely doesn’t see that as his problem at all. Why didn’t you look into FBI misbehavior, Mueller? “It wasn’t in my scope of my investigation.”

    His goal is just to root crap up like a hog and sling as much mud as possible and to take his time doing it.

    What bothers me is the assumption in the cases to date (Flynn, George P., and Cohen) that the evidence against them was obtained in a legal fashion. None of their expensive defense attorneys have challenged the chain of custody of evidence, or the manner in which that evidence was obtained or the manner in which the warrants were obtained. That should have been a legit legal defense resulting in all charges being tossed. Cohen has always swum with the sharks, and his attorney, a Clintonista, wasn’t going to do him any favors for sure. But the attorneys for Flynn and George P….

      Mueller and the cabal are trying to run out the clock on the PDJT admin. Impeachment ain’t gonna happen and they know it which is why they are creating so much mud to be used in the next election, so that PDJT will not be reelected.

      The scope letter won’t be enough to protect Mueller, in my opinion, because it won’t be the only evidence presented against him. There is plenty of evidence to show that he was aware of the politicization of the FBI/DOJ/ and intelligence community in general and that they abused their authority…likely in a criminal manner.

      None of this will stop and the MSM will continue to pretend that it never happened until all of the leaders of the coup are indicted.

      I think that defense attorney hands are tied defending ‘national security’ cases, and the reason the entire ‘investigation’ started under that umbrella. Special rules for evidence, special rules for grand juries and special rules for defense depositions?

      As I wrote 2 years ago, one of the most useful tools a President has is the power to disclose. That is why the globalist have passed regulation under cheveron deference and developed a cadre of top level government appointees to run things for them. They are always chosen to stand in the way of the Constitution and human progress.
