              It was his FBI, his DOJ. Those aren’t independent organizations with elected Directors.

              Spygate, FISAgate all began and occurred under his watch, his people. And everyone knows he knew about it via the briefings and especially because of the January 2017 meeting in his office.

              Yes there are also guilty parties such as the Go8 who had to eventually know of the perfidy being passed along disguised as a real investigation, yet did nothing to expose it. If it wasn’t for Devin Nunes, I don’t know where we might be today.

                FISA Court Judge Rudolph Contreras

                Contreras…got the whole ball rolling (with John Robert’s help)
                In April 2016 Chief Justice John Roberts appointed Contreras to the United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court for a term starting May 19, 2016

                In October 2016 (Strong Possibility) signed FISA Warrant for Carter Page

                In 2017 Contreras was randomly assigned the case of United States of America v. Michael T. Flynn, the former national security adviser to President Donald Trump.

                In early December 2017, Judge Rudolph Contreras was recused from the criminal case involving Gen. Michael Flynn who had pleaded guilty in an arrangement with Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

                  My question revolves around Chief Justice Roberts, who I call “pretzel boy” for obvious reasons, especially if one reads his opinion on Obamacare.

                  Roberts has an arrogance rooted in his narcissism where he thinks (my educated guess) he is smarter than most, especially the President who he dislikes (my second educated guess) more than the rule of law.

                  In other words, Roberts is a never-trumper and a jerk of the first order (in my humble opinion)!

          Years ago, my uncle worked as a police dispatcher in a mid-sized Midwestern city. They had a “hotline” to the local FB1 office, and the local police were supposed to pick up whenever they picked up suspects for a federal crime like a bank robbery. (It was literally a red phone with a direct line to the FB1.) Then the local FB1 personnel would arrange to “apprehend” the suspects and parade them in front of news cameras so the FB1 would get all the credit for the arrest. By the time my uncle was assigned to Dispatch, the local FB1 had already established a decades-long reputation for hapless ineptitude, corruption and self-aggrandizement. They treated the local cops like serfs, and were such azzholes to deal with that the officer supervising the Dispatch office finally taped the red phone’s handset down with duct tape so no one could use the hotline.

        The Democrat Party started the U.S. Civil War — the Southern branch of it did, and the Northern branch produced the “Copperheads”, traitors to the Union who supported the Rebs. Had the Democrat candidate for prez won in 1864 (George McClellan, the hapless Union general), he would have shut down the war and left the country destroyed.

        The Dem Party leaders weren’t banished, exiled, shot, or otherwise dealt with (some of the Southern ones lost their citizenship). And the Dem Party is still with us, still causing endless trouble. Amazing.

          “The Democrat Party started the U.S. Civil War…”

          That would take about 400 pages to correct with historical moves and countermoves between 1804 and 1861, but I can see the direction of your thesis.

          Both sides reached the crossroads in April of 1861 by their intractable ideological differences. This is exactly where we are today. The northern abolitionists were almost equivalent to Antifa in their violent actions that pushed Lincoln’s hand.

          The factors leading to the first Civil War were much more complex than what you indicate, and they can’t be boiled down to a brief partisan talking point. It’s tempting, but it can’t be done. The importance of State’s sovereignty is long gone, but it occupied the thinking and motivations of the time.

          • I agree, and would add that the “Democratic Party” of those days is really only nominally related to the Party of the present day. The politics that consumed people’s thinking in those days – and which led to the Constitution of the Confederacy (a very interesting document …) – really do not exist today as they did then. (Emphasis on the last four words.)

              What occurred AFTER the civil war, IMHO, is more relevant to where we are, today.
              The South, population demographics was majority black. Giving blacks citisenship and the right to vote, without white southerners suppression, would have meant a permanent electoral advantage to Republicans.

              In addition, many northeastern cities had large populations of blacks as a result of fleeing slavery.

              The ONLY way the Dems could maintain parity was by suppressing black vote, and so they did.

              If you were black, aftrr the civil war, would you vote Democrat? Of COARSE not, you would vote for the party of Lincoln.

              Anyway, much of the history that led to the current democrat party, such as support for planned parenthood, suppression if 2A and other positions can be traced to the AFTERMATH of the,CW, is my point.

              Now, of coarse its greatly effected by what was happening around 1915. The formation of the Soviet Union, and “progressiveism” as a camels nose under the tent flap, and now we have a dam camel all the way inside our tent, and are,struggling to find a way to expel it, without shooting the dam thing!

              I think you mean tariffs rather than taxes, but I understand your premise, although I partly disagree with it. The overseas trade situation was similar to what we have now, nascent Northern industries couldn’t get off the ground because British and French industrialists kept the prices of finished goods low to suppress domestic competition. Therefore tariffs to protect Northern manufacturing. Southern interests were against these tariffs because of resultant higher prices on imports plus retaliatory tariffs on their exports. It was a cause of stress, but the Union had survived similar crises before. The confinement of slavery to the South and Texas proposed by the Republicans, and eventual extirpation of ‘the peculiar institution’, is IMO the primary cause of the secession, because too many Southern leaders believed that without it their primary source of wealth and income (agriculture) would suffer greatly (which was not true but was not properly understood at the time). The Union fought it because if successful every state could then secede, the Union would disintegrate, the small states would become playthings of the larger ones and all of the states would be pushed around by the Great Powers. The Confederacy would likely have split apart too within a short time, almost certain Texas would have gone its own way after the war (Texas due to it having been an independent state actually was never part of the Confederacy, merely allied to it). Warfare between states would have become commonplace. A good work of ‘future’ fiction on such a scenario is called ‘Bring the Jubilee’.

                So true, as Mueller is a professional witness. Hannity can’t wait for someone to ask this softball question: “When did you first conclude there was no collusion?” Mueller answer :”I’ve never concluded that.” Mueller will then explain that they found no evidence of collusion, and can’t say as a certain fact that collusion did not take place. I think Mueller will also testify that in his opinion, there is a valid case for obstruction, and that he “respectfully disagrees” with the AG. The Dems are prepping him, and if they are not convinced beforehand that his testimony will help their anti-Trump agenda, then the hearing will be canceled.

        The trouble is – however honest Barr may be and however determined to put the perps in jail, any trial’s going to take place in DC before an overwhelmingly biased jury. And having a trial in which obviously guilty perps are acquitted is going to do nothing to discourage D hacks doing it again next time round. Remember that while Sundance produces a splendid chart of all the corrupt DoJ and FBI officials who have left the building, for each bum, there are fifty more hack D lawyers ready to take their place.

        You’re only going to see convictions if Barr can find evidence of crimes outside DC where he can get an unbiased jury. Maybe some of the stuff that went on overseas can be got out of the DC court.

            I think you are right. And I think the first deal has already been made by Rod Rosenstein.
            When Andy McCabe started to point the finger at RR about a year back I saw it as the first break up of the cabal.
            RR probably figured out real quick that he was to be the nominated fall guy for the Coup…took a smart pill…and made a deal I think.
            Another possibility is that RR had already made the deal , McCabe got wind of it and then panic,d and started counter measures.

            My betting stilll is they all still walk away from this. I have low confidence in Barr….he is swamp and will be persuaded by the swamp to dial everything back FOR THE GOOD OF THE COUNTRY 🙂
            But if Barr does pursue this coup attempt then McCabe for sure is toast based on his actions and past testimony.

            You are correct, & it’s all connected. What they conspired is much bigger. The Russian Hoax/Witch Hunt is just one aspect of, & it involved more than just the 3-4 agencies.
            There are many agendas that were coordinated, & on various levels simultaneously occurring. These ALL serve the same underlying purpose: “Resistance”.

            The BAD actors:
            Gov agencies/IC, DNC, RNC, Congress, countless News/Media outlets, Websites (Google, FB, Twitter, YouTube etc…), some Mil, NGO’s, PAC’s, Cellular & Internet providers, Tech Co’s/Silicon Valley, Apple, Certain Banks, Officials & LE in various States, Private Co’s & Int’l Corp.’s, China (Not Russia), etc …. etc …. etc ….

            NO part of this should’ve been left unchecked on exposure. Worse, it’s been allowed to continue unhindered. That’s likely by design, but not good.

      Maybe it’s just me but despite his calling Barr “a real attorney general”, I didn’t detect quite the same level of eagerness and predictions that “prosecutions are coming” as Joe has previously always said in these interviews.

      Victoria and Joe definitely skewer Mueller’s case, and call the FISA warrant actions actions and other process crimes. But I listened twice and didn’t hear them say the criminals would be prosecuted.

      Maybe it was the limited scope of this interview but, despite his apparent continued support of AG Barr, I thought Joe D was just a bit more muted than before.

        It’s a common practice even in business to prohibit cell phones from certain venues at certain times. I had to check my phone on a number of occasions YEARS ago. I know of another place where you better leave your phone in your car, because cell phones are prohibited inside the facility at all times.

        But, will GOP questioners aggressively pursue this angle? Joe and Victoria had mixed feelings. They cited Jordan and Meadows cas great questioners, while others unnamed were poor on the follow-up. Likely the more astute among the Republicans picked up the hint.

      I think if Mueller does show, his testimony will have more impact for the Dems than Cohen and blasey ford, combined.

      It will be TERRIBLE for them, and I think they are beginning to realise it.
      Dems always have a PLAN, stick to the PLAN, even when its obvious its falling apart, and NEVER have a plan B.

      They have painted themselves into a corner, and have no way out. If they don’t have Mueller testify, the squad and those behind them are emboldened to attack Pelosi and the Dem leadership as feckless, and handing Trump victory in 2020.

      If theu DO have Mueller testify, and it destroys the narrative and mueller is discredited, they get the SAME result.
      Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

      And this, leading to the 2020 convention, where the young turks will attempt to take over control of the party, arguing the leadership has shown they are incompetent, and are manipulating the process, to get their chosen nominee, just like in 2016.

      MOST of the rank and file delegates will be ‘with’ the young turks, and supporting the revolt against the old guard. Its 1968 all over again, as old guard will rely on superdelegates to insure THEIR chosen candidate gets nomination, at which point young turks,will tear down the convention hall.

      Who will be their Hubert Humphrey, and who their McGovern, is what is being decided right now.

        Totally agree Dutch.

        It’s fascinating to consider what options the Dems have at this point:
        Tuck tail or Damn the Torpedoes, Full Steam Ahead.

        If they tuck tail…..they will NEVER get another shot at removing Trump again. NO WAY.
        So its move headlong……

        Mueller PREEMPTIVELY made it extremely clear he DOES NOT want to testify.
        Which means even if he despises Trump and wants him removed he wanted NO more part in this.
        That is his STARTING POINT in the “negotiations”.
        (Not just “NO” but “F*** NO)
        Why?
        Nothing more to add? A fraud “investigation” that may be exposed? Possible criminal liabilities? Doesn’t actually know the case? Physical/Mental inabilities? Damage to his legacy?
        Whatever the reason it’s clear he sees it fraught with peril.

        What does Nadler/Schiff have to NEGOTIATE WITH to move Mueller from his starting point?
        They tried to concoct a SAFE SPACE where they would protect him and SUPPOSEDLY that was enough.

        In the interim Flynn/Concord cases have blown up and Barr gave Mueller an out.
        And the testimony was “postponed”.

        So here’s a question Nadler/Schiff must be considering:
        What do they do if Mueller decides NOT to testify after all?

        The August recess will most likely KILL whatever momentum is left.
        A subpoena seems out of the question and Barr would support fighting it.

        A desperate animal is a dangerous one.

      Subtly and consistently, John Solomon of The Hill, keeps the Russia Hoax alive. Here’s a quote from his most recent Hill article:

      FBI’s spreadsheet puts a stake through the heart of Steele’s dossier

      “Steele had some general things right, of course, including that the Russians were behind the hacking of the Democratic National Committee’s emails. Of course, there were public reports saying so when Steele reported this.”
      https://thehill.com/opinion/white-house/453384-fbis-spreadsheet-puts-a-stake-through-the-heart-of-steeles-dossier

      There is NO proof that Russia hacked the DNC, none. In fact, the evidence shows that it WASN’T a hack at all. When will this Russia Hack lie die?

      I keep help this feeling, that the first draft of the so-called “Steel Dossier” was composed by Sidney Blumenthal aka Sid Vicious. It fits Sid’s profile of providing unverified “intelligence” information to Hillary that was designed to take down and destroy Libya.
      This time, Sid’s unverified “intelligence” dossier was designed to take down Trump.
      Same MO. And since Sid is more than a little pervy, he couldn’t resist the inclusion of a Russian call girl bed-wetting scene.

        I can’t resist the notion that the GENESIS and origin of the dossier was NOT to generate an FBI investigation of the Trump campaign.

        It was initially intended as an “October surprise”, to be inserted into the media just before the election, to tip it to Hillary.

        Thus, didn’t HAVE to be verifiable, or able to withstand serious scrutiny.
        Probably why Hillary was so confident she would win without campaigning.

        Problem was, after the Bush military record fiasco, no one in media would publish. So, Steele worked with contacts to try to get FBI to SAY they had opened an investigation, based on the dossier.
        THAT is all he wanted, cause then Press would report THAT, and of coarse could then report the salascious details IN the dossier, as part of reporting THAT ;”The FBI has opened an investigation”.

        Seperately, the coupists were in a panic, due to admiral rogers actions. They needed a way to contain the problem that they had politicised the NSA database.

        They cobbled together their insurance plan, using the dossier, which they knew all along was crap created with the intention of smearing Trump just prior to the election, as justification fir the fisa warrants.

        Kinda like using a crescent wrench for a hammer; you CAN do it, in an emergency, but its NOT what it was designed or intended for.

        The dossier was NEVER intended to withstand serious scrutiny. Just to get into press reports, shortly before the election.

          The FBI tried to hide it but at the 10th hour (Oct 20) SDNY called HQ saying:
          “Hey when are you gonna get this laptop?”
          Forcing Comey at the 11th hour (Oct 28) to reopen the HRC Email Investigation (Fearing the NYPD would expose the lapse)
          The ultimate “OH SHIT!”

          And if you recall………that CONSUMED the narrative for the last week of the campaign.

    I for one am exhausted just from hearing and reading about all the corruption coming out of the FBI, DOJ and CIA. Just how bad, can the bad guys be when you have the FBI, DOJ and CIA working for you, this way?

    I am in favor of putting a lock on the front door of all three (FBI, DOJ and CIA), and starting over again. Anyone want to try and save these organizations?

    We seem to be paying them to run operations against the American people. And, this needs to stop!

    We all know, now based on evidence that the Mueller/FBI/DOJ report has more holes in it than Swiss cheese. This goes to show that they are very good a fabricating evidence. And, they have no problem in lying to FISA court. Just look at the Carter Page warra

      They should all 3 be dismantled for their usable bits and reconstituted under different names and entirely new management.

      And, get rid of the Senior Executive Service.
      That was probably jimmy carters’s most stupid idea.

    How would an ex FBI director go into the Oval Office with his phone? Where was the Secret Service?
    Then HOW did this ex FBI director “ forget” his phone in Oval Office??

    Mr. Mueller, why did you advocate the denial of parole for four innocent men, that resulted in the deaths of two of those men, despite the FACTS that your FBI department KNEW to be innocent, and cost taxpayers 100+ million dollars to settle?

    It’s fairly obvious to most that Mueller’s team was corrupt, but it’s going to take legal action like the instance sited below, to expose the true breadth and depth of their malfeasance. I’m beginning to wonder if, as this article points out, Mueller’s presser wasn’t an attempt to quietly backtrack on the claims and assertions made in the report. It would be damn hard for anyone to pickup on the use of the word “alleged” vs it’s absence since we’re almost programmed to insert it in the conversation when talking about allegations of criminal conduct. Mark and Jim you have another question to ask Mr. Mueller if he shows up.

      Their has been enough information revealed, very recently to expose Mueller and his team to prosecution.

      Mueller has committed Fraud – saying anything in a hearing before Congress at this point would be stupid!

        Start with Weismann and work your way up and down the food chain at the SC. There is evidence of more than enough misfeasance and malfeasance tainting every aspect of their investigation to land most of them in jail. Come on Barr…let’s get ‘er done!

    The John Solomon article at The Hill is devastating.

    So OIG Michael Horowitz has no wiggle room for his FISA report and recommended indictments?

    Also, if this was known months or even a year ago, PA Dunham has it. Right?

    Still arguing over how crooked the swamprat coup plotters were, yet nobody has been arrested yet….🙄

    Until we see swamprats being frog marched onto the prison busses, the fix is still in.

    Mueller may have to be asked several pointed questions about Flynn’s case given what we know now.
