Damn, is Bill Barr Corrupt Also? – DOJ Files New ‘Last Minute’ Motion to Keep Comey FBI Memo Content Hidden From Public…

In our opinion the content of the diary by former FBI Director James Comey, as outlined in what has formally been called “The Comey Memos”, is devastating to the U.S. Department of Justice and FBI.   How do we know? Because the FBI is fighting like hell to keep even descriptions of the memo(s) content from becoming public.

Rather complex backstory with citations HERE and HERE and HERE.

In the background of what was The Mueller Investigation, there was a FOIA case where the FBI was fighting to stop the release of the Comey memos.  Within that courtroom fight Mueller’s lead FBI agent David Archey wrote a series of declarations to the court describing the content of the memos and arguing why they should be kept classified.

The FOIA fight shifted.  The plaintiffs argued for public release of the content of the FBI agent’s descriptions, now known as the “Archey Declarations”.

After a lengthy back-and-forth legal contest, on June 7th Judge James E Boasberg agreed to allow the FBI to keep the Comey memo content hidden, but instructed the DOJ/FBI to release the content of the Archey Declarations.

Today, the U.S. Department of Justice -under Attorney General Bill Barr- while waiting until the last minute (28 days since prior ruling), filed a motion [full pdf below] to block the release of the Archey Declarations, despite the June 7th court order.

Again, if transparency in conduct of the DOJ and FBI during 2016 is the expressed goal of Attorney General Bill Barr, then his current department fighting to keep descriptions of FBI memorandum hidden from public review runs exactly counter to that intent.

This DOJ activity does not bode well for a narrative of Bill Barr is an honest broker.  This is an example of how to cover-up material that is damaging to the institution.

To be fair, Attorney General Bill Barr may not be aware the United States Department of Justice Civil Division, Federal Programs Branch, is fighting this court ordered release.

However, the DOJ Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Division is Jody Hunt.  That name might be familiar to you because Jody Hunt was Jeff Sessions former chief-of-staff.

Asst. AG Jody Hunt most certainly knows his office is fighting to keep the FBI descriptions of the Comey memos hidden from the public.

Despite the original media FOIA lawsuit coming from CNN -vs- DOJ, there is no-one in the MSM covering this story.   Here is today’ DOJ filing:

.

Here’s the background on the June 7th, 2019, ruling as we shared at the time:

Judge Boasberg was deciding what could be publicly released, meaning current redactions removed, based on two connected events: (#1) The content of the Comey Memos; and (#2) the declarations of lead FBI agent for Robert Mueller’s special counsel, David Archey, in describing those memos.  CNN had filed a lawsuit to gain full access.

[Note: the descriptions of the Comey memos by FBI agent David Archey are known as the “Archey Declarations” – Read Here.]

For those who may not be aware, there are so many memos (dozens) when assembled they seem to make up an actual diary of moment-by-moment events, during the FBI investigation of Donald Trump, as documented by FBI Director James Comey.

♦ In the issue of the redactions within the Comey Memos, the judge doesn’t remove them. Some are ordered to be removed, some are approved to stay in place.  The Comey memo aspect, and the redaction decision, is basically a splitting of the baby 50/50.  It will be interesting, but meh, maybe not too much detail. – CNN ARTICLE

(Pdf Link)

The issues argued by the FBI lawyers to keep the Comey memos hidden surround sources and methods.  The judge generally agreed to the potential for compromise, but also outlined several sections of redactions within the Comey memos where that argument doesn’t hold up.  [The judge has read the fully unredacted memo content.]

♦ However, on the issue of the Archey Declarations there’s an opportunity for some very interesting information to surface. Here’s an example of currently existing redactions within the Archey Declarations:

And stunningly, yes, STUNNINGLY, Judge Boasberg has ordered the Archey declarations to be fully released to the public WITHOUT REDACTIONS. See pages 34 and 35 of the ruling.

That means all those black boxes in the example above will be removed and CNN will be allowed the fully unredacted content of the declarations by FBI Agent David Archey.

This should be interesting.

Hopefully we don’t have to add Bill Barr’s picture to the graphic of corrupt DOJ and FBI officials; however, time is running out…

      …maybe I have just heard too many tick tocks..breaking news…bombshell information…blah..blah..blah….I think Barr is banking on Trump going for #2..since he has NO STOMACH NOR DESIRE TO BE KNOWN AS THE GUY WHO BURNED IT ALL DOWN FOR TRUMP..

        I agree with most of your key points–there was a deal cut with each party getting something out of it. My only question at this point–was Barr the 2nd deal, and McConnell the 1st? Trump was compromised somewhere along the way and it had to be early on since he started acting differently and making questionable hires right after he took office. Remember that infamous closed door meeting with cocaine McConnell when Trump became presumptive nominee. Something more than a meet and greet occurred since Trump up and hired his sleazy wife to be her husband’s eyes and ears. Moreover, Trump constantly complains about previous administrations, yet has no problem hiring key people from the very administrations he still complains about, does he? I’ve lost count the number of campaign statements he’s backwalked on.
        Barr is merely there to look after establishment interests, not for any law and order. He’s just a cleanup guy to ensure no one will ever be charged. So naturally all those statements Trump keeps throwing out like confetti about documents coming soon are about as believable as the 69 moon walk.
        I was an ardent Trump supporter, and still have a tiny shred of hope something will change. But my eyes and common sense tell me otherwise. A leopard doesn’t change it spots and neither do people. Trump seems concerned with one thing—protecting the Trump brand.

      This contradiction is so apparent that it reminds me of the scene in “A Few Good Men” – if the Major’s orders are always followed and he ordered no one harm the Marine, how could the Marine be in any danger? If the Judge says the Archey memos require no redaction, and they are honest summaries of the Comey memos, how can the Comey memos need redaction? Further, if the Judge believes the Archey memos require no redaction, why would the DOJ oppose their release?Is the opposition mere window dressing? Is Barr just letting this all play out so that the ultimate declassification will fully expose the corrupt intent of the creation of the Special Counsel probe by Comey?
      This is what I hope for. This could completely destroy the pretext for the SC when combined with the obvious set up of Papadopoulos.

    We who post here fall into the trap that assumes Attorney General William P. Barr is immersed in the minutiae of the Trump-Steele Dossier fiasco. And we speculate about how focused he is and why this or that is pending or seemingly going astray.

    On June 26, Attorney General William P. Barr gave opening remarks to the U. S. Attorney’s Conference. He never once so much as alluded to the Mueller-Trump-FISA-Steele Dossier-DOJ-FBI-corruption. That was to be expected.

    AG Barr spoke about what was on the agenda which the Department of Justice and the U.S. Attorneys face. And it is formidable.

    Perhaps people at the Conservative Tree House sometimes forget that the Attorney General has a lot of on-going, important action on his plate. Here are some issues AG Barr mentioned:

    Much of what we are doing today is trying to make up ground that was lost as the result of inattention in the past. I assure you that with sustained efforts and firm resolve we will make up this ground and surmount these challenges.

    One of these priorities has been fresh on my mind of late, and that is violent crime.

    The personal safety of our AUSAs is of the utmost concern to me, as it is to you. Far too often I find myself sending condolence letters to the families of fallen law enforcement officers. This Department will not tolerate violence against police, and we will do all we can to protect the safety of law enforcement officers. There are still areas of the country where we have not made sufficient headway. For many communities in America, armed criminals and violent crime are still the norm. We cannot accept this status quo.

    We need to maintain our focus on getting illegal guns off the streets and out of the hands of violent criminals. I also want to see vigorous enforcement of the background-check process, both against prohibited persons who “lie and try” and against firearm dealers who skirt the process.

    As you all know, we also cannot reduce violent crime without confronting the role of gangs and other criminal organizations. Working with our state and local partners, we must keep sustained pressure on these groups, which are primary drivers of violent crime. Many of these criminal organization have national or transnational profiles, and thus require a coordinated federal strategy. RICO is one powerful tool to neutralize violent criminal organizations, and I know some of you are using it very effectively. We should strive to duplicate those efforts across the country.

    We must have zero tolerance for violence that is motivated by hatred for our fellow citizens — whether on the basis of their racial, religious, or sexual characteristics. We also need to take a strong stand against those who would use violence to intimidate people from exercising their rights to free speech and to participate in the democratic process.

    I believe that the last Administration was not aggressive enough in fighting the drug threat; a lot of ground was lost; and a tsunami was allowed to build up that has been hitting the country. We cannot be discouraged. When I look at the overdose deaths, the blighted lives, and the families and communities broken by drug addiction, it reminds me why we cannot surrender. We must work harder than ever. On the streets, the rise of fentanyl and other synthetic opioids has been followed by 100-times stronger car-fentanyl and by mixtures of fentanyl with cocaine and other drugs. We must also continue our efforts to prevent and punish diversion of licit drugs,

    I am also working to address the problem through a surge of immigration judges, new Attorney General rulings, revised regulations in coordination with DHS, and a host of other measures.

    The Department is fully committed to combatting terrorism, foreign intelligence threats, the theft of intellectual property by foreign adversaries, and cyber attacks. (We know China) to have both a robust intelligence operation and an economic strategy that includes exploiting the intellectual property of our companies and citizens. We need to continue to pursue, and indeed step up, our China initiative. The threat of attack on our economic infrastructure, trade secrets and intellectual property is ever growing and we should be prepared to address it wherever we find it.

    In the twenty-first century, an increasing proportion of crime is cyber crime, as the dark web has become a black market of contraband that fuels criminal endeavors of all kinds. As organized crime becomes increasingly transnational, we see more and more crime move online.

    For me, the elder-fraud initiative provides a great example for how the Department can use its resources with a high return. Not only is the elderly population among our most vulnerable citizens, but we are learning more and more about the role of foreign and transnational criminal organizations in perpetrating these schemes. Another area I want see us redouble our efforts is in prosecuting human trafficking violations, especially those involving children. We are working with the AGAC and several components on initiatives to step up the fight in this area.

    We have an obligation to enforce federal law, and that means covering all of the bases as best we can. If we say that the Department will prioritize violent crime prosecutions, we know that this cannot mean we ignore civil-rights violations or environmental crimes.

    The Attorney General is in all respects, a General. The degree to which he might not be down in the minutiae and weeds that are seen from the trenches is understandable. It does not indicate either corruption or incompetence. Eisenhower did not land at Normandy on D-Day. It was not his priority to do so. Attorney General Williams P. Barr can not be all things to all of the people who are doing the investigative work. He also has to find who to trust and when to doubt.

    I see A.G. Barr as the poet Tennyson saw Ulysses: “that which we are, we are: One equal temper of heroic hearts, / Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will / To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.”

      I see him attacking the 2nd Amendment under false pretence of going after the “illegal guns” and “illegal gun ownership,” i.e. they are going to abuse the so called “Red Flag Laws” at the state and federal level like they did with the civil forfeiture: Take your guns first, ask questions later, and “hope” the judiciary is going to ensure that 99% of the law-abiding citizens won’t be able to reclaim their property (although you have a constitutionally protected right to own a gun, your explanation why you need a gun seems, you know, “kind of fishy,” so you won’t get it back – sounds familiar?).

      While the cartels who run the show in Mexico and elsewhere have billions of dollars to pay off FBI, DEA, ATF and Border Patrol agents…

    The latest filing on the Archey declarations does not seem to be a good balance given there is public Mueller report with the obstruction portion dealing in large part with the Comey firing. I wonder if Jody Hunt recused himself from anything to do with that case since he figured significantly, imo, into the Mueller report obstruction narrative.

    In my opinion, the investigation (original plus Mueller) into President Trump and Sessions recusal destroyed relationship between the DOJ and President Trump. I think Barr understands this, and is one of the many reasons he is serving. He has a lot to keep his eyes on to ensure there is transparency and doesn’t allow people that may have a damaged relationship with President Trump to just move the institutions on without sunlight. Sunlight doesn’t just go one way (only President Trump….via the Mueller report).

  14. You do not want James Comey to be handed a new set of “press releases” which he can then use, if brought to trial, to assert (for example) that a non-prejudiced jury cannot be found, and/or that the findings of the Grand Jury were affected by “the Court of Public Opinion.” I have little doubt that this very thing is what CNN has in mind.

    In many ways, James Comey is the kingpin crime-boss here, and he laid many layers of defenses to preserve his own power. Does it not seem strange that he would write what amounts to a self-incriminating diary, then have an FBI agent write a description of that diary, so that the latter can be released to the public? You don’t want “the wrong kind of ‘perp walk'” to happen here – where the accused walks free on a technicality.

    If the plaintiff in this FOIA case were Judicial Watch or some other obvious white hat rather than John Brennan’s network, CNN, I’d have a lot less trouble seeing this as just more standard FBI CYAism under the guise of national security.

    But believing Brennan must be rightfully concerned about the content of Comey’s diaries, their probative value as contemporaneous records, and their likely adissibility in a criminal trial under a hearsay exception, I am inclined to cut FBI some slack for the time being.

    Unless Durham and Barr prove to be hopelessly in the DS tank, I find it inconceivable that Brennan is not among the aces in their suspect deck, and that Comey’s interests and version of events could well be at odds with Brennan’s. Under those premises, failing to object in this case, and thereby permitting Brennan (and CNN) a prematute crack at spinning a counter-narrative, would seem almost careless.

    And that’s just Brennan. Who knows what danger lurks in those memos for other potential targets that might best be legitimately kept under wraps for the present?

    For all the folks who keep insisting that Barr has shown zero evidence of not being a good guy, I’ll repost a link I got from one of the hundreds of comments here, and on page one, I think, I saw the same post I had later posted about Barr’s involvement in the Ruby Ridge, and later Waco murders. In that article, I clicked links in comments, and links in comments in the links; down the rabbit hole deeply. same as the first link here:

    This explains Comeys smug narcissistic tweets and provocations. He knew he would be protected the entire time. The peasants can’t know what’s going on because “national security”. A convention of states is the only answer. Messy but change will never come out of DC.

    You are just figuring out that Barr, Durham, et al are the cover-up? Been saying it for a long time.

    A theory to try to fit to the frustrating facts: the Comey memo redactions must point the blame finger at Lynch and Obama. He is a weasel after all. Too soon to get that shadowy part of the story into the public eye.

    From Trump’s perspective, I don’t think it matters whether Barr is corrupt, though it doesn’t take much analysis of Barr’s resume to determine where his loyalties might lie. As far as Trump is concerned, China is the fountainhead of all corruption in the West. If the China problem can be solved, then all corruption downstream will wash away. It seems everything else is a tangential issue to him.

    Either it’s a rogue Session’s connected element in the DOJ or its that Barr is dirty. If this isn’t sorted out quickly we’ll then we have our answer.

    I hope not, but everything day that goes by with no sunlight, is one day more the Deep State Coup d’etat attempt cover-up continues. That Barr may also be part & parcel of the corruption is definitely concerning.

    I’m going to have to disagree here. There could be a bunch of different reasons why the DoJ would file this last minute request. That said, the public release of these memos has no bearing on whether or not Barr is acting in the interests of justice for those who were part of Russia/Spygate. Public release of the memos has zero bearing on whether or not people ultimately end up getting prosecuted or not.

    Is Barr corrupt? Of course. They all are. The government is beyond redemption, it is corrupted from top to bottom through and through.

    Almost two months ago here I said that nothing will come of any of these investigations. And nothing will. How many times do you need to go through these cycles of “This guy or that guy will fix everything!”, only to realize later that, no, **this** guy or **that** guy will NOT fix everything.

    Just as with Rosenstein, Mueller and Comey there is no doubt that Barr is corrupt. The only question is whether he will be less corrupt in this specific instance. One cannot rise to the top through the political system without being corrupt. One only needs to look carefully into bars detailed history to see that he is indeed quite correct.

    For the former FBI agents that comment here:
    It has been more than two years. If the rank and file are pristine as Hannity says, why have they not formulated a plan to out the criminals? Pretty sure policy says if you know of wrong doing you are required to come forward. Can anybody who has worked for the FBI comment?
