Too Deep To Drain? – OIG Finds Preponderance of Evidence Against FBI Deputy Asst. Director – DOJ Refuses to Prosecute…

Citing the ongoing internal investigation of FBI leaks to media, from the 2018 OIG report on FBI conduct, today the Office of Inspector General outlined a preponderance of evidence against a corrupt FBI Deputy Asst. Director.  However, the DOJ is refusing to prosecute:

(Source)

The most alarming aspect is the OIG finding of the Deputy Asst. Director leaking grand jury information to the media, and yet the DOJ is declining to prosecute.

Incredibly, the inspector general (IG) indicated, without explanation, that “prosecution of the DAD [deputy assistant director] was declined.”  Instead, the investigation’s findings will be referred to the FBI for “appropriate action”.   What the hell is going on?

Unfortunately this is a pattern; and bears striking similarities to the FBI finding clear evidence of former Senate Intelligence Committee Security head James Wolfe leaking the classified FISA application on Carter Page, and yet never facing charges for those leaks.

From the 2018 OIG report, here is how Michael Horowitz explained the media leaking:

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 “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.

When we overlay a day when corrupt special prosecutor Robert Mueller takes to the podium to state prosecutors cannot prove guilt, but rather President Trump must prove his innocence; and simultaneously the DOJ refuses to prosecute a demonstrably corrupt Deputy Asst. Director…. Well, things are beyond FUBAR.

When we see that justice is measured, not by due process, but by compulsion; when we  see that in order to invoke our sixth amendment right to due process, we need to obtain permission from men who rebuke the constitution; when we see that justice is determined by those who leverage, not in law, but in politics; when we see that men get power over individual liberty by graft and by scheme, and our representatives don’t protect us against them, but protect them against us; when we see corruption holding influence and individual liberty so easily dispatched and nullified – we may well know that our freedom too is soon to perish…

Also, Barr is setting himself up for a second Trump presidency when he will make major structural changes to the FBI and DOJ. Look for rift’s and decentralized operations away from DC.

          That’s a point rarely brought up concerning RINOs in DC but is 100% true. Some RINOs have calculated that the conservative agenda simply can’t win against the entrenched Leftist hold on government, so they purposely play the middle. Their great fear is that the Republican party would get decimated if it lurched any further right. They view the Republicans as a check on the Democrats’ grab for power, and nothing more.

          I’m not endorsing it, but that is what’s going on with a certain percentage of RINO politicians. On the other hand, some are some simply traitors that were hand-picked to run as Republicans and never cared one whit for the Right’s agenda.

            I think Donald Trump, then Candidate, then Pres-elec, then President Trump has known all along how deep and mucky the swamp was/is. He has to walk a tightrope with impeachment on one side, and continuing with his agenda on the other. I think the progs (democrats, never trumpers, gope, socialists, communists, antifa, etc,. and all of their ilk) are truly scared to death. They are doing everything they can to protect the power and control they have.

            But, they have nothing, they really have nothing. If they had something, anything, we would have heard about it long before now. They continue to try to throw sand in our eyes and resist, obstruct, lie, cheat, steal, and kill to hold on to their power.

            President Trump has the DIA and now has the NSA too, as it was put under the DoD. President Trump has all of the information. He probably has not read one one-millionth of all of that, but he has it all. The timing has to be right, the evidence must be air tight, all of the “t”s crossed, and all of the “i”s dotted.

Witness how much resistance President Trump has faced on immigration employing his verified constitutional powers.

              It won’t be stopped until the Democrats have flooded the Southern border states with illegal immigrants, ensuring their total control over the presidency once Texas falls. I suspect the border problem disappears the minute Democrats have a decided advantage in the electoral college map numbers.

    The only “reason” I can think of for the DOJ declining prosecution is that the word “classified” has been given a new definition in the DOJ vernacular.

Agree, Sundance – the protection of politicians seems be the prime objective in all of the cases/ sweetheart deals you mentioned above. But this stuff goes against my inner grain and was one of the most frustrating experiences in my auditing career: the declination to recover tax payer dollars from inept contractors. Billions wasted and no one held to account.

Sundance : “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?”
    A person to ask would be FNC contributor Jonathan Turley. He has such a GLOWING review of
    Ms. Jessie K Liu.

  20. It’s been my contention for some time that in exchange for getting Mueller off Trump’s back (a huge deliverable) the quid pro quo was that POTUS would leave Barr to pursue department clean-up as the latter saw fit i.e. a very measured and ‘judicious’ affair. The cues have been Trump’s perfunctory response on the Assange arrest (essentially ‘not my job; go talk to Barr’) and again last night in response to the scurrilous Mueller speech. A very muted Trump response,

    However to suspect something and to see it unfold are two very different things. Very depressing. Very disappointing. At the end of the day, Barr is a swamp creature, not Patrick Henry. We need to prepare ourselves for realistic outcomes. It is what it is.

    It’s going to take Executive action from our ESG POTUS to fix this mess. The ossified careerists at the FBI have cemented a culture that rewards institutionalism. They protect the organization and themselves without regard for the rules and federal regulations that are supposed to govern it. Beyond releasing the kraken, deconstructing the FBI is the only remedy.

    Any future iterations of the FBI will require far more oversight by elected officials who can and will be held accountable at the polls. Public trust will never be achieved without it.

    Sundance–After being challenged on Twitter that the Steele legal filing available on-line was worthless, despite Steele’s admission that Perkins Coie needed Steele to come up with a pretext for Hillary to challenge the election if she lost, it occurred to me that Steele’s response to that interrogative might get us closer to the predicate.

    Steele was hired in June, but Fusion GPS was hired in April to carry out the same task. Steele was hired as a sub-contractor. No one was talking Trump-Russia so that anyone could hear in April 2016. It wasn’t until after Guccifer 2.0 showed up on June 15, 2016 that the Washington Post ran the first article claiming Trump had large investments in Russia and was crushing on Putin. Prior to that moment, the only one making any stir about Trump and Russia was ALEXANDRA CHALUPA, who got started in January 2016. She didn’t really get rolling until March 2016 after Manafort joined the Trump campaign. So, how in April did it make sense for Hillary to need an “insurance policy” like the dossier to provide the legal pretext to challenge a Trump victory if it should occur?

    In the course of the research, evidence of a mole in the Trump campaign surfaced when a POLTICO timeline revealed that George Papadopoulos knew he was on the list of foreign policy advisors as early as MARCH 6, 2016. This was important because Professor Mifsud started his run on Papapdopoulos on March 14, 2016, but the list of foreign policy advisors was not made public until March 21, 2016, one week after Mifsud’s contact. Here are reproductions from the timeline.

    March 6: Around the time George Papadopoulos learns he will be a foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign, he has a conversation with a supervisory campaign official. Papadopoulos leaves the conversation with the understanding that “a principal foreign policy focus of the Campaign was an improved U.S. relationship with Russia,” according to court documents.

    March 14: Papadopoulos meets in Italy with a London-based professor who takes “great interest” in him after learning of his role in the Trump campaign, according to a plea agreement. Papadopoulos learns that the professor has “substantial connections with Russian government officials, which Papadopoulos thought could increase his importance as a policy advisor to the Campaign,” the court documents say.

    How did Mifsud know Papadopoulos was on the list when it was not made public until one week after he contacted Papadopoulos? Mifsud had to get the information from someone. Not only could a mole have done it, but the same mole could have put Papadopoulos and/or Page on the list in the first place just so the incompetent FBI “assets,” Mifsud, Halper, and Downer, could take their runs at both of them. They started too early by starting in March, but there is that story about the June FISA warrant application that was rejected…

    I guess using that Steele court filing paid some dividends after all.

      farrier105 THANK YOU!
      I listened to the Mark Steyn interviews of GP and the Duran analysis of those. I could not figure out why Misfud went after GP before he was working on the Trump campaign.
      Why was GP invited to London and given the director title, introduced to the beautiful but ignorant ‘Cambridge assistant’? Any ideas?

        It was an entrapment operation. Unfortunately, it failed. Here was a 28-year-old who works in the energy business, mostly in the Mid-East. Doesn’t work with Russians. The FBI comes at him with three operatives, Mifsud, Halper, and Downer, all trying to get him to say something to incriminate the campaign about Russia. Papadopoulos wouldn’t meet the elements of a profile of someone who would be involved in espionage with Russia. Maybe you throw one at him to see if he bites, but three means it’s a frame job. All three of them were incompetent, so Papadopoulos didn’t take the bait.

    I am getting sick and tired of these whining sniveling democrats who catch get it through their thick skulls that there was no collusion, and no obstruction since there was no crime. They spend all their time trying to get Pres. Trump instead of doing what they were elected to do. They set up people such as Papadopoulos and act as town criers pointing out the wrong he committed, however no wrong done. They turned their heads on Benghazi, Fast and Furious, pay to play schemes of Hilary, Obama’s sending monies to Iran, Hilary’s e-mails on private server (Obama knew about that and the hacking done by the Russians and did nothing) the actions of John Kerry and Obama’s involvement with the Dossier. Congress has not done anything but waste tax payers money on frivolous investigations, and since they showed no collusion, they want to investigate further. They have to be stopped and ordered back to work.

    I personally know two US Department of Labor investigators working labor union corruption cases in Kentucky that were prosecuted for leaking grand jury information to a reporter and the other to a witness. There was nothing corrupt about the leaks. The reporter was exposing the corruption in the labor union and the theft of union funds by the insiders. The other witness was a whistleblower who was working with the investigator to get evidence. These cases are hard to prove because the union members who cooperate with the investigators will typically lose their jobs. Anyway, both investigators had over 20 years of service. They lost their jobs. They lost their pensions and went to prison for one year each but McCabe gets a walk!
