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weeks later, on March 28th, there was an announcement about a change of plans, and U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu’s name was withdrawn from consideration.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

    Barr sound like a genuine fan of Liu’s. “Jessie Liu is one of the finest, most impressive people serving in the Department of Justice. She has been an outstanding United States attorney and would have made an outstanding associate attorney general,” Barr said in a statement Friday, after Liu formally withdrew from consideration. “I have zero doubt she would have faithfully executed my priorities and advanced my rule-of-law agenda. Because I need Jessie to play a broader role in the department, I am appointing her forthwith to be chairwoman of the Attorney General’s Advisory Committee.” https://www.law.com/nationallawjournal/2019/04/01/women-lawyers-group-stands-up-for-jessie-liu-after-doj-nomination-scuttled/?slreturn=20190314233053

      Diana, I do not think Barr sounds like a fan of Liu at all. He has absolutely no choice about her being on the AGAC, the DC USA by law is included. Unless PT fires her as USA – which at this juncture would be stupid – Barr is stuck with her but has seen to it she’ll have no position at Main Justice. His statement is completely appropriate in describing the person he effectively demoted.

          Sorry, I’m not aware of any shouting match btwn Barr and Lee. (I can’t stand Lee either.) Bottom line is Liu has been taken out of contention for a key DOJ position. I believe Barr intends to conduct himself honorably and focus on repairing the damage to the extent possible. He doesn’t owe anybody anything and he sure doesn’t need this job for any other reason.

          Diana,
          Thank you for the link and back story here. It strikes me the group supporting Ms. Liu and opposing Mr. Alito is a womens rights group (NAWL) and it is from that perspective she is “highly qualified” to serve in the highest level of main justice. That pressure concerns me in light of the indiscretions that are highlighted in SD’s article. It points to what I’ve maintained since the rise of Mr. Obama which is that the Democrat Party is largely made up of nothing more than fractured (unhinged) activists and in some cases with mutually exclusive goals; each group is out to get their own singular agenda advanced. NAMBLA, CAIR, BLM, #METOO, SJW, DSA and countless others are pounding drums of support for their causes all under the auspices of the Progressive Democrats. It won’t be effective and has made so much noise that even Mme Pelosi can’t corral the voices and develop a cohesive message. To that end the GOP should be exploiting the dissension (Cortez and Pelosi battle) and at least sound organized. Then we get Mike Lee, Romney, Murkowski et al in there on occasion turning the focus upside down. It’s frustrating and purely political but from an executive standpoint I believe Mr. Barr to be a professional and an effective leader that will keep the focus on where it belongs; law and order.

        So many liars on this site, link to your fictions story. LoL. Jessica Lieu was part of Bush’s DOJ from 2002 to 2006, same time as Wray. Barr left the DOJ in 90’s.

        Sundance is wrong the Craig referal was sent to SDNY who sat on it not the DC office, the SDNY where Comey’s his daughter is an associate lawyer

        Barr only spoke to the President one other time before interview for the DOJ job, it was about joining his defence team and about Mueller’s character. so he wasn’t referring lawyers to President in a early 2017, didn’t even know him, especially a lawyer who was on President’s transtion team.

        Sessions was AG, where was his input on the Awan and Wolf Case , doubt DC AG makes these decisions alone.

        Nothing will be done, remember Newt making the point early on , 98% DOJ donations where to Clinton during 2016.

        Not so much corrpution on the part the people Trump puts in power DOJ or even the IG more cowardliness to go after bureaucrats alined with democrats, they are infested in the DOJ and DC, and more importantly powerful lawyer firms once leave the DOJ, this is the same DOJ that is pursuing charges against Trump’s secretary of interior with a vengeance.

        Barr isn’t going to do anything, he would have made moves to appoint a special prosector if they were going to go where this ultimately leads to the former DNI or FBI directors. I am just hoping Barr doesn’t turn out to be as much as a coward AND traitor as Sessions

        Bush 2 had same problem with lawyers in DOJ even with the hack Comey, who was duty AG, and had undermined both of Bush’s AG’s . Comey is also the one pressured Bush admin. to appoint a special prosecutor for leaking Plame’s name.. For one leak they wanted SP, how many national security leaks have happened against Trump with no one charged.

Also a stepping stone for becoming AG – gotta collection those pokemon capital hill favors – that he where Holder came from. And that guy has been a political hack forever. Totally true, my insiders, tell me the biggest POTUS Trump disappoint is his head of personal – who is an old time DC hack – and he is selecting swamp rats (hill rats) and NOT selecting people with the MAGA in the heart. Liu’s position would be critical in any impeachment process – Barr needs her resignation. In fact, he should get ever AUSA’s resignation ASAP – and purge the hold overs – a job which Sessions should have done or at the very least told Trump this is what is traditionally done when the POTUS swaps.

  13. A couple of points, wouldn’t it be appropriate at this time for a Senate committee to call John Huber in and to ask for a progress report, people interviewed, how much money spent, where we are on the McCabe referral and then request all emails and correspondence regarding these issues? I’d like to know why his fat ass hasn’t done a damn thing with McCabe, when even a non attorney like myself can see he broke the law. Beyond that, I watched the Meadows interview this morning with Bartiromo and rarely have I seen a politician answer less questions with so many words. Even Bartiromo was looking at him like WTH? He’s either an imbecile or dissembling… Very disappointing…

    OK…here we go…..

    Pence…..
    1. Put in charge of the transition team…almost all he recommended are gone.
    However, Pence did not give the transition keys to Christie….I am going deep on this one….

    2. Put in charge of pushing bills through Congress. How did that work out?
    3. Put in charge of eliminating voter fraud. This was during the Georgia special election. How did that work out?
    4. Pence was in South America waving happily behind Tom Donahue…Donahue gave a blistering speech against the President. Pence said Nothing.
    5. During the taped Bush/pu88y gate tape scandal, Pence said nothing to defend the President .
    6. Pence fired Gen Flynn for supposed lying to him
    7. Now he is in charge of Space Exploration….has he said anything about that?
    8. Pence was placed as Vice President by the RNC.. This is a tradition for decades, like the DNC picks the VP. Then Preibus is picked as Chief of Staff. How did that work out?
    9. Pences personal physician ravaged the Presidents nominee, Jackson, forcing him to drop out. Pence said nothing about it.
    10. Pence visited the Border during the Caravan arrival at the border. He spoke to the press saying: “Don’t worry, we will let them all in.”

    If he isn’t the one…..he should still go….

    Just saying..

        Hence, most of what I mentioned above is him doing “nothing”, but are some violations of “The Color of the Law.

        My personal opinion is he was part of the plan to get the President impeached. Pence was selected because after President Trump was impeached, the Globalists then would have someone they could control.

        Pence, like Sessions, was part of the plan. We may not even know if true, until the President selects his running mate for 2020.

He pointed out: “Jessie has distinguished herself as a first-class attorney in private practice, in the Treasury Department, and in five different positions over her career at the Department of Justice. Today she leads more than 300 prosecutors at our nation’s largest U.S. Attorney office, where she has achieved significant accomplishments, including prosecuting several significant False Claims Act cases and implementing the Department’s pilot initiative on sexual harassment in public housing.”

    SD has, again, made very clear the pre-Barr corruption within the FBI and DOJ regarding the coup and subsequent coverup via the bogus DOJ OIG reporting. To Barr’s credit, it appears he scuttled Liu’s nomination. My question is why did he speak so highly of her so soon before she was dropped, considering the high probability, IMO, of his knowing about her baggage, as outlined in SD’s four bullet points?

    Moreover, from SD’s commentary above:

    “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?”

    I consider this a largely rhetorical question, one that supports SD’s January 15, 2018 article stating that “Bondo Barr” would probably not aggressively pursue justice for the seditious co-conspirators.

    Nevertheless, SD seems to answer the question:

    “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.”

    Perhaps the key point is finding the answer to SD’s additional inquiry:

    “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?”

    As several above have commented, it is very likely someone who is a “shot-caller,” close to the President, and a deep state operative.

    SD continues to carefully and legitimately document for historians the chronicles of criminality that are increasingly exposed through multiple sources. I anticipate that his intuition, as I perceive it, is correct, in that any genuine attempts to prosecute the principal, guilty parties are very unlikely.

    As the colloquialism says, “It is what it is.”

    Sundance’s article reminded me of a comment Sidney Powell wrote about the DOJ in her excellent and revealing book, “Licensed to Lie.” Sidney wrote:

    “(Sen.) Steven’s defense team and every criminal defense attorney also knew that the DOJ would not do the same kind of investigation or reach the same conclusion as would a ’truly independent’ prosecutor. The DOJ was way too political, incestuous, self serving and self institutionalized to do so. Some lawyers opined that it really needed to be cleaned out from top to bottom with bleach and fire hoses. Too many people had been there too long. A select few merely moved in and out of the upper echelon depending on the political party in power. ‘Main Justice’ had descended to inbreed arrogance and political abuse of power, and the narcissists who wielded it produced disregard for the law.”

    Do Sidney’s quoted words seem to describe anyone at the top of DOJ, FBI etc when Trump was elected in 2016? It seems that hiding exculpatory evidence or concocting evidence (or Collusion Hoaxes) to convict suspects is not unusual in the history of the DOJ and neither is concealing inculpatory evidence against the DOJ (FBI) or moving people around if their own misdeeds are exposed. How will A/G Barr clean up this deeply entrenched and ineffectually supervised bureaucracy and its history of glaring abuses? And if Barr does make a dent in it; how long will it take to return to its old ways?

    There is a possibility that a deal has been made. I’m NOT 100% certain, but the possibility flows from the evidence while there are alternative possibilities. Here is what we know:

    1. Mueller asked for an extension on his grand jury in January. It was for six months. He got it. He used less than three when he threw up his hands and ended the investigation. That just happened after Barr was confirmed. Barr and Mueller know each other about on a par with Mueller and Comey. Barr is former CIA and a Bush protege.

    2. About 12 days after Mueller withdraws, Wikileaks announces that Julian Assange will be expelled from the Ecuadorian embassy at any hour or day. One week later, Assange is in British custody. Democrat/leftist circles have a jubilee on social media.

    3. Sundance has pretty well stuck a fork in any possible prosecution of McCabe. It wouldn’t take a year to charge him for lying in a manner that would obstruct justice. He’s likely free from prosecution. Comey has received, so far, similar treatment when his past testimony about how the second Hillary email investigation proceeded has been publicly contradicted along with conspiracy to leak classified information. These were no-brainer prosecutions that have been lost in ether.

    I’m halfway convinced that this information shows the outlines of a deal that will spare the majority of those involved in the spying, while exonerating Trump. This accounts for all the process crimes successfully adjudicated by Mueller’s team, and the Manafort prosecution for all the white collar crimes that were previously used as leverage by CIA and the State Department for Manafort’s past assistance in pushing US policies in Ukraine and elsewhere (Pakistan where Manafort worked with Pakistani ISI by posing as a CNN reporter). MAYBE one or two of those involved in the anti-Trump operation will be fried, but not many. Most of those being punished will have been on the Trump team.

    ONE of the primary objectives of this entire operation, if not THE primary objective, the apprehension of Assange, has been achieved, along with the successful prosecutions of other APPARENT Trump supporters like Manafort. It looks like only Corsi will walk after Stone is successfully adjudicated. I don’t know what will happen with Corsi’s huge alleged lawsuit against Mueller et. al. There is lots of leverage on Stone useful to his prosecutor outside of anything he did in this affair, just like with Manafort. I’m predicting that Stone will go down.

    How will all the anti-Trump people walk for the most part? Well, there’s the matter of PREDICATE. If there can be a predicate for the spying ginned up, and it likely is all ready to go if this analysis is correct, just about everything they did is covered. As long as Trump doesn’t go down, it will be a matter of members of his team arousing “reasonable suspicion,” which resulted in a counter-intelligence investigation of members of his campaign.

    The people to watch are MCCABE and COMEY. If they are not prosecuted for at least perjury/lying to investigators, the fix is in all the way. The timeline is what arouses suspicion that this scenario MIGHT be true.

    12/7/2018–Trump announces that William Barr is his choice for Attorney General.
    1/4/2019–Mueller gets extension of six months on his grand jury despite recent reductions in the Special Counsel staff.
    2/14/209–Barr confirmed.
    3/22/2019–Mueller unexpectedly ends his investigation. Sends report to Barr. It is over 300 pages long, so it took some time for the team to compile the entire report.
    3/24/209–Barr produces a four-page letter summarizing the Mueller report. Trump’s campaign did not coordinate with Russian government. Barr and Rosenstein declare Trump did not obstruct Mueller’s investigation.
    4/4/2019–Wikileaks announces that Ecuadorian government will expel Assange from Embassy.
    4/11/209–Assange expelled and apprehended by British authorities.

    • Any chance it’s the UK IC that is driving the Assange Arrest as leverage to prevent PDJT from using their collusion with the Obama IC in Russiagate?

        I don’t think Trump is going to do anything about Assange. If there was leverage it was used to secure his arrest. The Administration worked for the arrest. Sessions wanted it. Pompeo advocated it. Pence worked Ecuador to get it. It is Administration policy to apprehend and prosecute Assange. Always has been. They TOLD US it was.

      I agree that it seems as if a deal has been cut. I heard Barr was a Bush guy, so I was hoping that if he was not going to do the right thing that perhaps he would protect the Bush and friends clan and go after the Obama/Hillar/Deep State corruptocrats. I get the Bush clan is New World Order, but certainly there is more stability for America with their machinations than there was with the Clinton/Obama thugs who used America like a chop shop. Trump can only do so much and I was thinking that second best case might be that we get an equilibrium like Giuliani did in New York back in the 70’s or 80’s. It’s all very discouraging. It is a big country, is there no one who can step up and restore our law and order?

    I’m not going Full Coulter here, but at some point PT had to take responsibility for these unvetted appointments. Is he leaving nominations up to snakey insiders, intent on mutiny? If so then he really is alone in the castle. I suspect fake caterwauling on the Dem’s part to lead us to approve of someone who are just actors for the left. I no longer believe any of it, nothing is authentic in that industry.

    “The Trump camp continues to draw DOJ transition officials from the nation’s largest law firms. The newest members are McGuireWoods partner J. Patrick Rowan, the former head of the National Security Division; Morgan, Lewis & Bockius partner Ronald Tenpas, the former head of the Environment and Natural Resources Division; and Morrison & Foerster partner Jessie Liu, who served as a top official in the National Security and Civil Rights divisions.

    The first five members of the DOJ team were announced on Friday, a list that included Kirkland & Ellis partner Brian Benczkowski, who previously worked for Trump’s U.S. attorney general pick Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Alabama, on the Senate Judiciary Committee; Jones Day partner Gregory Katsas, the former head of the Civil Division; and Jones Day associate James Burnham.”

    Given that the corruption is behind the letting off of so many connected people from their crimes, I might put forward the notion that these people are not eligible to claim “double jeopardy” or of being tried twice for the same crimes. The fact they were let off was an illegal and corrupt act and does not represent fair due process of law.

    Therefore I say “Bring them back and charge them with their proper crimes and try them for the FIRST time.”

    I think Chris Christie recommended her to the transition team. You perhaps could still refer to her as an “insider”. He’s kind of gone back and forth over time in support or the Trump administration. I also read that there’s a connection between Christie and Wray. From what people have posted here, I wouldn’t doubt if she’s the one who wrote the Op Ed. She seems like a swamp creature from the get go.

    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, (October 15, 2018)

    IF Jeff Sessions had a lick of honor, it would be this day where he coordinated with the WH to resign the day after the Mid Terms 3 weeks later.

    Catching and prosecuting “Leakers” was a Sessions Priority…….
    and with his recusal he wasnt’ allowed to have many….

    Watching the Chief of Security for the Senate Intelligence Committee essentially walk would have been just too obvious.

    The FISA court may be viewed as “necessary”–a critical tool and component for national security. It is also an appalling, “Star Chamber” secret process, of the sort that led the Founders to break with England. It is inimical to our freedom and obviously easily subject to all sorts of abuse. Its utility in “protecting” us simply cannot be used as to justify its existence, any more than gun confiscation can.

    It needs to be abolished.

    Barr stands on a precipice. He can do the right thing and investigate/prosecute the coup conspirators, or he can continue the coverup/amnesty that was begun by Sessions. If he does the former, then the rule of law has a chance to resurrect. If he does the latter, then there will be no cavalry coming over the hill to save the day. It will be up to the citizens of this country to march on Washington DC and demand real justice. The numbers need to be huge and they need to stay until tangible change occurs. Nothing less will save us.

    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.

    Why restrict it to just one person?

    A person like Senator Mitch McConnell (who was not on the Trump transition team) can get his people on the transition team and into the Trump administration. Once inside, those moles work from directions provided by McConnell, or his paymaster Tom Donohue. How many of these appointments come back to McConnell indicating who he can get confirmed?

    The Deep State is “managing upwards”.
