The Corruption and Influence of Jessie K Liu…

What do the following four points have in common?

  • The manipulated DC legal case surrounding the Awan brothers; and how they escaped full accountability, likely due to need to protect politicians. (House of Representatives)  The sweetheart plea deal.
  • The manipulated DC legal case surrounding SSCI Security Director James Wolfe; and how he was allowed to plea only to lying to investigators when the evidence was clear from the outset how he leaked classified information to his journalist concubine. Again, likely due to the need to protect politicians. (SSCI, Senate) The sweetheart plea deal.
  • The manipulated DC legal case surrounding Obama lawyer Greg Craig; and how he escaped accountability for FARA violations by running out the statute of limitations and burying Mueller’s evidence for 18 months.  Again, likely due to the need to protect politicians (Obama White House).  Sweetheart double standards.
  • The manipulated DC legal case, a non-filing, surrounding former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe for lying to INSD investigators about his media leaks.  Again, likely due to the need to protect the administrative state.  Criminal referral (April 19, 2018); grand jury (Approx. July 2018); Status?… Oh, wait for it….

If you note the common thread is: U.S. Attorney for DC, Jessie K Liu, well, you would be entirely accurate.  Oh, but wait, we’ve only just begun.

Pay attention to the timelines.

While newly confirmed Attorney General William Barr was/is “getting his arms” around ongoing corruption within the organization he is now attempting to lead, there was an announcement on March 5th, about U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu becoming the #3 official at the DOJ.

Three weeks later, on March 28th, there was an announcement about a change of plans, and U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu’s name was withdrawn from consideration.

In addition to AG Bill Barr “getting his arms around” issues within the department, what else happened between March 5th and March 28th that would so drastically change plans for Ms. Liu?:

On March 21st Representatives Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows send a letter (full pdf available here) to Attorney General William Barr wanting to know what is the status of the year-old (April 19th, 2018) criminal referral for fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. (link)

.

Answering the letter from Jordan and Meadows would be easy.  The AG picks up the phone, calls Ms. Liu, asks the question and then sends back a response. Except, well, there was no response.  Instead, a week after receiving the letter Ms. Liu’s name is withdrawn from consideration for promotion…. and later AG Barr admits there was ‘spying’.

Keep in mind Meadows and Jordan obviously suspected –as did we– that no DOJ case against McCabe was being pursued; after all, the evidence was previously gathered, it doesn’t take a year.  Additionally, when Mark Meadows is directly asked about the status of this specific issue today with Maria Bartiromo what does he answer?  He doesn’t… [watch the interview] he avoids the question completely.

Put it all together and be intellectually honest…. McCabe’s current non-worried book-tour status is directly in-line with the politically convenient Awan, Wolfe and Craig approach.

See the picture?

Obviously we don’t yet have a solid history to reference AG Barr’s motive and intentions (cautious optimism).  However, granting benefit of doubt, CTH can imagine an eyes-wide-open diplomatic response from any Bill Barr ‘hands-around-it‘ line of inquiry….

Hence, Liu withdrawn.

Now some might ask why Barr would simultaneously make Jessie Liu the chair of the Attorney General Advisory Committee on the same day her name is withdrawn (March 28th announcement); however, Barr doesn’t have a choice about the DC U.S. Attorney sitting on the AGAC.  By law [28 CFR § 0.10] the Attorney General can pick all of the AGAC members, with one exception. The DC U.S. Attorney is required to be a member.

[Nice little deep state continuity trick]

Given that Barr is bringing in people from outside the DOJ –specifically from his prior law practice- that he knows he can trust, CTH suspects Barr made Liu Chairwoman of the AGAC for two reasons: (1) keep eyes on her; and (2) busy her with administrative work.

But wait…. it gets better.

Accepting that Ms. Jessie Liu is a career participant in the DOJ aspects of deep state preservation; even acting in a role as Deputy Chief of Staff for the DOJ National Security Division (yes, the DOJ-NSD division at the heart of the FISA issues); and remembering that Ms. Liu was also a member of the Trump transition team…. well, who the hell recommended her for those roles?

Someone ‘inside’ the Trump operation had to recommend Jessie Liu as a member of the transition team knowing full well her ideology would protect the administrative state.  Who was that person who recommended her, and brought her in?

Additionally, regarding the recent March 5th, 2019, recommendation for Associate Attorney General (position #3), there has to be a point-of-contact between the DOJ and the inner circle of the White House.  A person who would carry a recommendation from the DOJ institution, internally, to President Trump.  Who was/is that person specifically?

If the 2016/2017 recommending transition member is the same as the 2019 recommending administration member… well, that’s the person who is directly working to the detriment of President Trump’s agenda.

Again, for those who might prefer to look-away from cold data, go back to the four points of specific reference we started with and research:

  • The manipulated DC legal case surrounding the Awan brothers; and how they escaped full accountability, likely due to need to protect politicians. (House of Representatives)  The sweetheart plea deal.
  • The manipulated DC legal case surrounding SSCI Security Director James Wolfe; and how he was allowed to plea only to lying to investigators when the evidence was clear from the outset how he leaked classified information to his journalist concubine. Again, likely due to the need to protect politicians. (SSCI, Senate) The sweetheart plea deal.
  • The manipulated DC legal case surrounding Obama lawyer Greg Craig; and how he escaped accountability for FARA violations by running out the statute of limitations and burying Mueller’s evidence for 18 months.  Again, likely due to the need to protect politicians (Obama White House).  Sweetheart double standards.
  • The manipulated DC legal case, a non-filing, surrounding former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe for lying to INSD investigators about his media leaks.  Again, likely due to the need to protect the administrative state.  Criminal referral (April 19, 2018); grand jury (Approx. July 2018); Status?…

Look up those specific backstories.

Right there, in combination with the non-accountability outcomes of the two previous inspector general reports, is a big part of the corruption problem.  If AG Bill Barr intends to save these institutions, he has his work cut out for him.

QUESTION: If the DOJ Office of Inspector General found no intentional DOJ and FBI malfeasance in the June ’18 report covering the totality of the 2016 election; and no direct evidence of political bias within the decision-making of the officials being reviewed; what’s the likelihood of the same OIG finding malfeasance as it relates to DOJ/FBI *FISA activity* and the exact same people?

The extensive OIG election-period report found no DOJ/FBI misconduct (only some bad judgement). There were no criminal referrals. There were recommendations for internal improvement, which FBI Director Wray said the FBI would implement (link).

It’s important to note the Office of Inspector General FISA review/investigation of potential FISA abuses (opened March 28th, 2018) was launched three months prior to the “Election Activity” final report in June 14th 2018.  There was obvious investigative overlap; however, the June report said “no evidence of intentional misconduct.”

The time frame covered by the “Election Activity” review (OIG report 2) and the “FISA Activity” review (OIG report 3) are the same. The topics are different (FISA being more specific), but the people under review and time-frame therein are identical.

If the OIG found no intentional corrupt activity in the June ’18 report (only bad judgement); no referrals were made; and time period and people are exactly the same; how can the OIG produce a post-facto FISA review report with substantively different conclusions?  It seems unlikely.

However, that said, there is a narrow window of potential optimism for those seeking some measure of accountability inside report #3.

DOJ Official Bruce Ohr is likely still employed for the same reason the dispatch of Peter Strzok and James Baker was delayed prior to the finalization of IG report #2. The OIG and INSD (inspection division) can only reach those still inside the system.

On the narrow issue of how the DOJ and FBI assembled, handled and used the FISA application (and subsequent Title-1 surveillance warrant), against the Trump campaign and officials therein, Bruce Ohr is a key and central witness for the OIG (link).

Mr. Ohr has testified (transcript here) that he was interviewed by IG Horowitz about his role in assembling the information that was later used in gaining a FISA Title-1 surveillance warrant without following the Woods Procedure.  [Note: Mr. Ohr was never interviewed by John Huber]

Unlike the previous OIG report #2 (Election-era Issues) if the OIG can find direct and intentional “gross misconduct” (by referencing traditional and historic FISA application assembly therein), toward those officials who participated in the FISA assembly, then it becomes possible the OIG report could potentially outline that the FISA application resulted in serious fourth amendment civil rights violations. And that perspective could be a narrow opening toward legal issues for DOJ and FBI officials who participated in assembling an *intentional* and fraudulently-based application to the FISA court.

Unfortunately, that approach is a very high bar for the OIG to reach. Again, the OIG would have to find “direct evidence” of “gross misconduct” resulting in civil rights violations. The defensive arguments by the corrupt group would be filled with legal justification(s) and internal process discussion.  Lots of room for reasonable doubt.

Also unfortunate, any finding of “fourth amendment” FISA-abuse would be adverse to the interests of the larger U.S. intelligence apparatus and institutional participants who rely on the current use of the FISA process.  Current officials would want to protect it.

I suspect the team of DOJ/FBI officials who abused the FISA court, and are now watching things unfold, are also relying upon the institutional necessity of the FISA process to protect themselves from too much scrutiny and sunlight.  An example of that unfortunate reality is found with HPSCI Chairman Devin Nunes advocating for FISA reauthorization on January 11th, 2018 (link); right in the middle of the explosive revelations and discoveries of potential abuse.

As HPSCI Chairman, Devin Nunes knew back in 2017 the FISA process was abused for corrupt political intent.  However, he also knows FISA is a critical component and tool for the U.S. intelligence system and national security.

Currently Mr. Nunes is advocating for a much larger conversation about FISA and “Title-1” authority before any further congressional re-authorization.

We can only imagine the downstream political chaos if IG Horowitz started cracking open the doors to possible civil rights violations from Obama-era FISA abuse.

♦ Prove the July 31st, 2016, Crossfire Hurricane operation originated from fraud by exposing the CIA operation that created the originating “Electronic Communication” memo. Declassify that two-page “EC” document that Brennan gave to Comey.

♦ Release and declassify all of the Comey memos that document the investigative steps taken  by the FBI as an outcome of the operation coordinated by CIA Director John Brennan in early 2016.

♦ Reveal the November 2015 through April 2016 FISA-702 search query abuse by declassifying the April 2017 court opinion written by FISC Presiding Judge Rosemary Collyer. Show the FBI contractors behind the 85% fraudulent search queries. [Crowdstrike? Fusion-GPS? Nellie Ohr?]

♦ Subpoena former DOJ-NSD (National Security Division) head John Carlin, or haul him in front of a grand jury, and get his testimony about why he hid the abuse from the FISA court in October 2016; why the DOJ-NSD rushed the Carter Page application to beat NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers to the FISA court; and why Carlin quit immediately thereafter. Squeeze this bastard’s nuts in the proverbial legal vice.

♦ Prove the Carter Page FISA application (October 2016) was fraudulent and based on deceptions to the FISA Court. Declassify the entire document, and release the transcripts of those who signed the application(s); and/or depose those who have not yet testified.

♦ Release all of the Lisa Page and Peter Strzok text messages without redactions. Let sunlight pour in on the actual conversation(s) that were taking place when Crossfire Hurricane (July ’16) and the FISA Application (Oct ’16) were taking place.

♦ Release all of Bruce Ohr 302’s, FBI notes from interviews and debriefing sessions, and other relevant documents associated with the interviews of Bruce Ohr and his internal communications. Including exculpatory evidence that Bruce Ohr may have shared with FBI Agent Joseph Pientka. [And get a deposition from this Pientka fella]

♦ Release the August 2nd, 2017, two-page scope memo provided by DAG Rod Rosenstein to special counsel Robert Mueller to advance the fraudulent Trump investigation, and initiate the more purposeful obstruction of justice investigation.

Yes, they were spying.

Release this material, and the entire corrupt construct is exposed….

Trump has known what went on since March of 2017 at the latest with the attempts of the corrupt fbi, cia, doj and State Department to try to steal and then overthrow a U.S. Presidential election. Trump has tweeted the scope and import of the actrions of the corrupr deep state in this matter. Trump has recognized in tweet after tweet the importance of holding people accountable for this, going so far as labeling their actions as treasonous many times. If the DOJ fails to hold anyone accountable this is Trump’s failure and it will cost him the 2020 election if no indictments are brought in the very near future (within the next year at the latest).

          – “extremely carelessly ignored” the Awan spying and billing that were major offences.
          – “extremely carelessly ignored” Senate security guy Wolfe’s major classified leaking to concubine.
          – “extremely carelessly overlooked” Greg Craig
          – “extremely carelessly” covered for McCabe major offences,
          If investigated and prosecuted in an unbiased manner “by book” (or like activities of “unprivileged” enemies of the DNC/Hillary/Obama mafia) Liu would have the “book thrown at them”
          SD’s point was that these cases are part of the swamp, which Liu protected, rather than drained.

    He needed the old guard to get where he got. No President has suffered the double onslaught from his opposition and his own. Exposing the entrails of the two has come at great cost to his supporters and his presidency. Now his enemies must pay!

    “There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things. Because the innovator has for enemies all those who have done well under the old conditions, and lukewarm defenders in those who may do well under the new.”

    … For men are less concerned with hurting someone who makes himself loved than one who makes himself feared, because love is held by a link of obligation which, since men are wretched creatures, is broken every time their own interests are at stake; but fear is held by a dread of punishment which will never leave you.”

    Ok here’s another theory.
    If you read the NY Times treasonous op-ed it mentions a collective “we” — more than one person – who are in “collusion” subverting parts of POTUS’ plan. That letter came out, if not mistaken, before the McCabe claims about RR and the 25th amendment and actually mentions two cabinet members that were on board.

    These two cabinet members are in league together enough, close enough, to trust each other implicitly. They have to have a bond in common. They have a history.

    I believe one or both of the two cabinet members helped or had help writing the op-ed with Jessie Liu. As someone else here noted, and I agree, the emdashes in the style of writing give away Jesse Liu as a likely part-contributing writer of the letter. IMO, one of the two cabinet members, and a likely contributing writer of the op-ed, is Elaine Chou. A Bush establishment republican married to another establishment republican who can, when and if the POTUS’ popularity dives below 33%, can impeach POTUS. The purpose of such op-ed pieces among other things, is to try and push POTUS’ ratings down so an impeachment is possible. They are failing miserably, of course, but if kept in power, they will keep on trying.

    Now who is the other cabinet member besides Elaine Chou that was “on board” according to RR to invoke the 25th Amendment to remove POTUS if it were possible?

    Liu was recommended by POTUS. But who recommended her to him? Who put her on the transition team? Wouldn’t that be the person in charge of the transition team? The same person who is still there in the WH? The same person who has a large input in hiring and firing people?

    But there is another tell in the writing style of the op-ed that gives away the other contributing writer…..the other cabinet member: https://www.dailydot.com/layer8/lodestar/

    PENCE.
    Pence is and has been directly involved in hiring and firing decisions, ala Flynn. If Trump is as the Lord’s David, then Pence is his Absalom, his “right hand’ man. Pence stands to benefit the most if Trump is impeached.

      As time moves on and nothing gets done on this matter it has become quite clear money, gofundme accounts, tweets, words, none of these are going to solve this problem. Social media is not the solution here. The solution is more old school, something more hands on. It is the monster in the closet and unless it is let out and actions taken, actions that could offend and scare many. Until the monster in the closet ir released and old school solutions are undertaken all American citizens citizens will continue top see that their votes and their voices mean not a gd thing and they shall remain the taxpaying slaves owned by their master the federal government/deep state

    The case against Greg Craig was referred to the Southern District of New York. How did it get back to DC US Attorney?

    “This case was thoroughly investigated by the SDNY and that office decided not to pursue charges against Mr. Craig. We expect an indictment by the D.C. U.S. Attorney’s Office at the request of the National Security Division,” Craig’s lawyers said in a statement. “Mr. Craig is not guilty of any charge and the government’s stubborn insistence on prosecuting Mr. Craig is a misguided abuse of prosecutorial discretion.”

      Mueller sent that case and the Podesta case to SDNY so it could be buried… then AG Barr came along and suddenly we see Craig indicted. Also, a couple of SDNY attnys suddenly retired…. 😉

      I suspect that AG Barr is the catalyst in this instance.

        Barr wouldn’t defer his retirement to be President Trump’s new
        Attorney General at the climax of the Mueller Investigation understanding he will be relentlessly attacked and smeared only to continue the massive SNOW-JOB covering up the biggest scandal in American history and destroy the stellar reputation and legacy he spent a lifetime creating.

        William Barr stepped up to be the hero and reverse the damage done to the Department of Justice, he’s not about to go down as the Donkey.

    This article about the Transition Team may give some more clues as to origins of Jesse Liu:

    https://thehill.com/policy/national-security/307056-trump-names-justice-department-landing-team

    “Liu, from the law firm Morrison & Foerster, was deputy chief of staff in the DOJ’s National Security division, as well as deputy assistant attorney general in the department’s Civil Rights division.

    According to her official biography, she now focuses on defending companies and individuals facing government investigations or enforcement action. She backed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio (R) for president, according to FEC filings.”

    The three people listed in that article are a little eyebrow raising.

    I apologize for the tangential observation, but here it goes: All of the relevant US Attorneys realize that there are all sorts of landmines buried in the analysis of these cases. The US Attorneys across the country have long ago thrown caution to the wind and disregarded the 4th Amendment. One needs only to research the 2013 Reuters article about the Special Operations Division to see public outrage of the sort we see now simply fizzling and disappearing with no real accountability.

    Unless he’s prepared to fire every single US Attorney (and many Assistant USA’s) and replace them with outsiders, then Barr is not going to root out this problem. It’s virtually impossible for any US Attorney to maintain the 100% conviction rate they all seek unless he/she has rationalized looking the other way as to the 4th Amendment. Whether relying on unverified information in a warrant application or simply turning a blind eye to systematic subordination of perjury (parallel reconstruction), they all benefit from leaving the anthill un-kicked. It’s a but for the grace of God go I sort of club mentality for the good ones, and it’s more swampy for the bad ones.

      Mueller was chartered to find foreign collusion intended to affect the 2016 election. It was easy to find that Hillary, the DNC, Perkins coie, the British IC and Fusion/Steele/Ohrs and Russian “sources” carried out major collusion and conspiracy. Why aren’t they indicted by muller himself, rather than a footnote in an IG report?

    Perhaps we could focus on the obvious. If Pence were secretly plotting to undermine Trump from within, why advertise it in a New York Times Op Ed? Toward what end? However, if you’re the New York Times and have worked non-stop to undermine Trump since the spring of 2016, what better FakeNews hoax could you come up with to sow the seeds of paranoia in the White House and add false evidence to the ongoing leftist narrative that Trump was unstable? How difficult would it be for a New York Times writer to do a LexisNexis search for speeches given by Trump’s cabinet members and pulling out a unique term here or an unusual phrase there and adding them to the article as false clues for the gullible. The New York Times has published FakeNews and continues to publish FakeNews against their political adversaries. Why do we trust them in this Op Ed? Remember Occam’s razor.

    As for how Jessie K Liu got to be U.S. Attorney for DC, there are other more obvious sources, such as Jeff Sessions. If Sessions was so politically naive to recuse himself over such an obvious political hoax, it’s not that great a stretch to conclude that he was equally naive about DOJ “career professionals”. Remember he did recommend Rod Rosenstein. And for those who believe Sessions had more nefarious motives to his actions, logic would produce the same source of Liu’s appointment. Before we rush to conclude that Pence is a traitor to our country—and that’s what we would have to believe to accept the idea that he was conspiring to undermine the President and the Constitution—we should carefully consider the source of the clues. The New York Times: All the FakeNews that’s fit to print.

        Emphatic and pointed, Joe knows. He’s relying on AG Barr’s loyalty to the law and expects more criminal referrals after the DOJ IG Report is released in May or June.

        The Swamp has much on its side but AG Barr has a big say on legal action. For both Barr and his team, the decisions will be momentous.

    SD – you raise consistent and clearly identified real world issues. We all hope Barr is more substance than style and BS artist. We the People are completely over business as usual and them protecting fellow criminals because, well, they are all birds of a feather – wink, wink. If that is not the case, support for PDT and needed change will slowly wilt in the face of more business as usual.

    “An example of that unfortunate reality is found with HPSCI Chairman Devin Nunes advocating for FISA reauthorization on January 11th, 2018 (link); right in the middle of the explosive revelations and discoveries of potential abuse.”

    Exactly. I would eliminate FISA entirely if I could. But, it’s a pipe dream that real reform like this will happen because they re-authorized it at a time when they knew it was being abused.

    Disgusting deep state nonsense sponsored by spineless legislators cowed into action by the ‘something-bad-might-happen-if-we-don’t-have-this-tool’ crowd. It sickens me.

    I would add one thing to supplement the squeezing of Carlin, i.e., the declassification of the Buryakov prosecution files. The DOJ Press Release dated 3/11/16 pretty much disclosed anything of worth to the Russians about how they got surveilled using Carter Page, and Carlin was intimately involved. Buryakov has already served his time and Sporyshev and Pobodnyy are both back in Russia. And the file, including any FISA applications or renewals will likely disclose that Mueller, Comey, Yates et al knew Carter Page was not an agent of the Russian Federation when they made that exact factual, verified representation to the FISA court on 4 separate occasions.

    Does the fact pattern presented at the beginning of the article make a sufficient case for conducting an internal investigation (DOJ OIG) of the circumstances that led to these puzzling outcomes? Is there a criminal conspiracy to obstruct justice? If not a DOJ OIG investigation, perhaps Judicial Watch could request the communications and documents pertaining to these cases under a FOIA request, if that may be applied.
    While several comments on this thread indicate a suspicion for Barr’s motives, I think his actions (so far) indicate a clear intention of thwarting any further abuses by the DOJ. We’ll see.

    I have been listening to George Webb’s daily street reporting on Youtube long before the 2016 election- he has been doing an excellent job on the AWAN iceberg tip for a long time; but for some reason, he is the Rodney Dangerfield of investigative journalism. His daily revelations and amazing dot connection have been available for all to see, even to those running this website, and other smarty pants who have written a book on the subject and still don’t really get it, or worse, don’t want us to get it. So just refer to George publicly as a nothing and a nobody, pay no attention to him… look over that way….or that way….

    unfortunately, the key takeaway I got from the essay is that the Deep State may have hoodwinked the Inspector General and therefore his investigation may not reveal all that we want to know or recommend legal action that might break the thing wide open via plea deals.
    I guess I quit reading it when Sundance said the window for action available to Barr might be so narrow as to be closed.
