    Well, that was pretty straightforward. If it were not for Judicial Watch (and a few others such as Sidney Powell) we would not know that we have been living within a corrupt, two-tiered system of justice (or injustice). Because of them, we now know that we are. My question is, as per Tom Fitton, when is this going to change? I am not holding my breath but the Flynn case and the future actions of Wm. Barr will be the great indicators.

    On the overcoming corruption front, this is an uplifting piece of news: https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/judge-orders-more-discovery-in-clinton-emails-foia-case

    May God bless Tom Fitton and Judicial Watch. (And I will not forget his predecessor Larry Klayman.)

    James Comey has a kindly feeling for criminals, and a compassion for them, on account of personal experience and heredity.

    I never can think of Judas Iscariot without losing my temper. To my mind Judas Iscariot was nothing but a low, mean, premature, James Comey.

    Suppose you were a criminal. And suppose you were an FBI Agent. But I repeat myself.

    It could probably be shown by facts and figures that there is no distinctly native American criminal class except for FBI Agents.

      FBI founder J. Edgar Hoover refused to acknowledge organized crime existed, while organized crime bankrolled Hoover’s race track gambling, among other things. Hoover was also a master political blackmailer.

        I don’t believe that mankind will ever learn that lesson as a whole, hence my moniker.

        A very good example of not learning that lesson is the sickening and tiresome old phrase I’ve had screeched at me my entire life, which is “we have to vote for the lesser of two evils.”

        There is no such thing as a lesser of two evils, and one that votes believing that there is has just voted for more evil. Which is why we had this binary system foisted upon us by evil self-appointed “elites”.

    Mr. Fitton, your exclaimation that Mr Comey did this as part of a vendetta for being fired is the ONLY thing I take issue with, every thing else I am a 100% with you.

    I don’t believe Comey did it as a vendatta, since if you just look to the days leading up Comey’s being fired and over lay “What Comey was saying in the media?
    (his mea Coppola on shoulda of, woulda of done things differently just before the Election in announcing the reopening of HRC emailgate, and back tracking from them)(He did this to set the stage for the President to question his judgement and fire him)

    It is quite clear the things Comey was saying were designed to push all the right buttons to get fired, which by design would trigger the pass off to Mueller.
    So where is the vendette, if he was setting the pass off to Mueller before his firing?
    Basically, Comey was begging to get fired so to trigger the appointment of Mueller. It is quite a different take on the song and dance vendetta narrative. Incidently, this observation it is supported by umerous timelines in decision making within the DOJ at the time.

      While I agree with your disagreement, I disagree with your reasoning.

      Comey was ABSOLUTELY NOT trying to get fired to get a Special Counsel appointed.
      TOTALLY UNNECESSARY

      Jeff Sessions was recused and Comey’s Investi-COUP was going along JUST FINE AS IT WAS…..
      AND COULD BE STILL ONGOING TO THIS DAY…..with Comey at the helm.

      Trump firing him was TOTALLY UNEXPECTED and a HUGE PROBLEM.
      What if Trump appoints some DUDLEY DO RIGHT in his place??
      UH OH

      The SC appointment was necessary in order TO MOVE THE COUP OUT OF THE FBI into a “safe space”.
      And most of the co-conspirators moved over there with it.

        Good point. Comey was far more valuable to the coup as FBI director, able to quarterback the whole thing from within, coordinate at the highest levels, and order up whatever resources they needed. His office was the hub. That’s why Trump fired Comey when he was a five hour flight away from that office.

        Also I don’t think they needed to sacrifice Comey to get an SC appointment. And had they locked in an indictment as they hoped, they might not have needed one at all. That would make the SC appointment another weapon in their arsenal, to be used if needed.

          They didn’t need a “fired Comey” to do it.

          They could have done it ANYWAY.

          As it stands, the SC WE DID GET was appointed without a documented CRIMINAL predicate in direct contravention of 28 CFR 600 and

          who knows what additional “crimes” SECRET AGENT COMEY could have cooked up until that appointment occurred.

            Exactly. With sessions recused and rr in charge, a 20 year old parking ticket could trigger an SC.

            In a coup, the closer the plotters are to the target, the stronger their position. Director of the FBI has direct and private access to the president, “face time” that is hugely valuable .

            He can shut the door and personally brief the target on the Steele dossier, thereby enabling the MSM to report on it. He has personal private dinners that he can later make public. The FBI director also has direct access to to Congress and those around the President, those complicit and ignorant of the coup, so he is able to manage and coordinate the lies and manipulation as the coup unfolds. He’s also able to run defense and protect the coup as needed. Everything flows through him.

            As you say, had Comey kept his job, the investigation would have continued from within the FBI, with the director calling all shots.

            Hard to say how much more damage that snake would’ve caused had he stayed in the job.

            Firing Comey was an incredibly gutsy move on Trump’s part, and a brilliant one.

        Which IF (big IF) that is what they are ACTUALLY working on
        may be useful there.

        Comey is an evil weasel but not a DUMB ONE and I think he (along with his cohorts) architected this cleverly enough that it isn’t a slam dunk
        And as a STAND ALONE case could exhaust valuable resources and if lost or creatively countered…
        could harm a future conspiracy case.

        And the leak charges could actually be added back in
        IF YOU PROVE THE CONSPIRACY FIRST
        because now you’ve got the solid foundation for why he LEAKED THEM.

        Or perhaps the reason they didn’t prosecute is
        because I’m just whistlin’ a Scottish tune past a graveyard.

          Krashman, I agree completely. Think of it from prosecutors’ perspective. They need to lay the groundwork first. Why charge with low level crime when you can charge with higher level crime eventually. As you point out, that low level crime can come into play afterwards anyways.

          Using a hunting analogy, do you take a low probability shot at your prey when it is far away and close to the woods? Or do you wait for a high probability shot as your prey walks closer to you into an open field and the wind is blowing in a favorable direction?

          In the court of public opinion, we all know what a “Queasy Weasel” Comey is. Realistically, there is no way he gets a free pass in the court of law when all is said and done. There has been too much evidence presented to the public for him to get off free and clear. Same for Clapper, Brennan and several others.

          I believe they were taking instructions from someone. All three will be held accountable. Even if you were the one who was giving them the instructions, you would realize someone needs to go down in order to restore some sort of faith in the institutions they led.

          As for the doubters, we know about Comey’s actions because there must still be some good guys in these institutions. Otherwise we would never have found out about all the offenses presented so far

          I believe from Barr’s perspective this is a huge nut to crack. I suspect he realizes these people need to be held accountable for the overall health of our republic.

            Excellent thoughts!
            I know alot of people are doubtful of Horowitz/Barr/Durham and for GOOD REASON.

            But after racking my brain…..I cannot see how Horowitz’s FISA abuse report is anything other than ABSOLUTELY DEVASTATING.
            As you stated…..far too much has already been exposed.

            Devin Nunes first focused our attention on this a year ago with a simple memo and did this for a specific reason: the fraud is plainly there.

            For example
            If the FBI claimed Bruce Ohr and/or Kavalec as A SOURCE for either the original or the renewals.
            IT’S OVER.
            For they specifically KNEW STEELE was behind that material and they had FIRED him as source.
            They were using him anyway and trying to hide that they were.
            There is NO LEGITIMATE EXCUSE they can come up with to explain that away.
            It was done with SPECIFIC INTENT.
            And that intent leads to CONSPIRACY.

            They “handled” Ohr for a reason–backchanneling Steele—and I bet dollars to donuts that that info ended up in one or more of those renewals.
            (Nunes highlighted Ohr in his memo)

            Now do you think that Horowitz will do a whitewash on this…..

            realizing….

            Nunes (and others) already KNOWS what’s in it AND
            POTUS could simply DECLASSIFY IT
            thus exposing that Horowitz covered it all up?
            Sorry….I just can’t fathom Horowitz making himself a co-conspirator to a cover up when he is criminally liable for nothing at all as it is.
            Especially a cover up that would fail.

              I don’t think Horowitz will cover it up. Even though Tom Fitton has said IG is where problems get swept under the rug/investigations go to die, I don’t think that will be the case here. Back when the DOJ or FBI was slow walking the release of the Page/Strotz texts and said they couldn’t find them or something of that nature, Horowitz was the one who essentially said, “Oh I have those, here you go”. You wouldn’t do that if you were in cover up mode.

              There’s too much out there to sweep this attempted coup d’etat under the rug. The target of that attempt was our duly elected President, but it was also an attempt at nullifying ~63M votes. Again, too many to let it go unpunished.

                Decisions points based on judgement and experience.
                And judgment can be affected by so many things allowing room to construct plausible explanations for behavior.

                A FISA Warrant Application Process is
                SPECIFICALLY CONSTRUCTED to remove as many of those variables that could lead to MIS-JUDGMENT.

                The FBI performs this strict process and then it’s (supposed to be) REPEATED by the DOJ via the Woods procedure.

                This decision process is then signed off by several people under penalty of perjury and presented to a JUDGE.

                IF THERE IS EVEN ONE PROVABLE LIE
                JUST ONE
                It was DONE DELIBERATELY.

If this coup is not put down, publicly and forcefully, the plotters will just keep at it until they succeed. It must be called out for what it is and the plotters must be indicted and tried for treason. If found guilty, they must be hanged.

      You can bet your sweet Aunt Panny’s fanny that Congress would NOT allow dismantling of the FBI without a HUGE FIGHT

      The “FBI” was not created by Congress but by the AG at DOJ in the early 1900s.
      (So it was an Executive Branch creation) and Congress DID NOT object.
      So in other words, it was with their tacit approval.
      An approval that in the last 100+ years if NOT expressly given….has been given by any number of precedents (funding and oversight to name a couple.)

      Oh…..and……The DOJ WAS created by Congress so while the FBI might not be their offspring….it sure is an adopted step-child.

      Finally if anyone ATTEMPTED to dismantle it…….
      CONGRESS could simply LEGISLATE it BACK INTO EXISTENCE.

    (a)Whoever, being an officer, employee, contractor, or consultant of the United States, and, by virtue of his office, employment, position, or contract, becomes possessed of documents or materials containing classified information of the United States, knowingly removes such documents or materials without authority and with the intent to retain such documents or materials at an unauthorized location shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for not more than five years, or both.

    (b)For purposes of this section, the provision of documents and materials to the Congress shall not constitute an offense under subsection (a).

    (c)In this section, the term “classified information of the United States” means information originated, owned, or possessed by the United States Government concerning the national defense or foreign relations of the United States that has been determined pursuant to law or Executive order to require protection against unauthorized disclosure in the interests of national security.

    I keep hearing that AG Barr is a good man, maybe so, but tainted so far as to not be able to do his job effectively. The time for investigation ( or posturing if you will) has long passed and is now time for the rubber to meet the road! All roads are leading to action of the judicial side! I’m really bothered by the lack of whistle blowers here! POTUS is blazing a trail of love of country, where are these patriots that CAN FOLLOW?

    Yawn, more yawning…wake me when someone, anyone–even a janitor, gets “perp walked:” as a result of Obama and Hilllary’s hatred for Trump and the actions they took actively and passively to cripple his presidency.

    Act One was getting me fired up! Act Two has made me feel discouraged relative to justice being served. Act Three (which we are now watching) seems to be where we just watch the rats running around while “legal beagle clowns” chase them and mumble to the audience (that would be us, the citizens) over and over again “ain’t it awful” what these people have done!

    Will I ever trust my government again? That is the question being played out…

      I happened to accidentally see a bit of Hannity last night since the DVR had been set to record Tucker for the first time in a long time and that was the tuned channel when I turned on the TV and he had a panel of three actual investigative journalists plus Hannity going over the same stuff they’ve been going over for a YEAR, probably wondering out loud why no one is in jail yet after I tuned elsewhere. It’s getting REALLY old… and pretty OBVIOUS.

      If you’re waiting with hope for the FISA violations stuff, I’ve previously posted here an excerpt from a 2013 article showing that when the NSA egregiously violated FISC rules in THREE separate ways with a bazillion violations within each of those instances the only fix required of the NSA by FISC was a change to their procedures. Not even a slap on the wrist…

        Well it’s nice to meet another pessimist… I mean realist. After awhile you begin to learn their modus-operandi. Every time the FBI and DOJ commit a criminal act they scream National Security and hide all the files.

        During a court hearing on February 23, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan granted Judicial Watch’s motion for discovery into whether the State Department and Clinton deliberately thwarted the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) for six years.

        The DOJ deliberately thwarted the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) for six years! Not a few days, not a few weeks, not a few months not one or two years, six years.

        In a Memorandum and Order issued today, Judge Sullivan found that “Judicial Watch raises significant questions in its Motion for Discovery about whether the State Department processed documents in good faith in response to Judicial Watch’s FOIA request. Judicial Watch is therefore entitled to limited discovery.” Judge Sullivan also questions, citing Supreme Court precedent, whether the State Department and Mrs. Clinton “purposefully routed…document[s] out of agency possession in order to circumvent a FOIA request.”

        Does anyone think, the rank and file are not involved. They have shown their willingness to leak but not a word about this – Not a few days, not a few weeks, not a few months not one or two years, six years.

        Just for the record, I know we are talking about the State Department, but they are represented by the DOJ.

              The definition of pessimist:
              A pessimist is often viewed as a negative person, but in reality this isn’t the case. Most people confuse pessimism with fatalism which is the root of this misconception. By definition a pessimistic person is usually a skeptic or doubter, someone who needs proof before they jump on board. Whenever they hear something new, they are the first to scrutinize it before they will accept it. Can be frustrating to some (especially optimists), but often they are the ones that facilitate the level of quality and change. Investigators and scientific people often represent this group.

              If pessimism leads to inertia, what does “Enjoy the Show,” “Trust the Plan (which none of us have seen)”, “Trust Sessions,” and “Trust Whitaker” bring on? Complacency. Those slogans are ideal for triggering complacency which really helps when a group desperately needs to BUY TIME. No one gets concerned as time moves along and no progress is being shown, only more reasons for delay.

              We have people coming in here posting theories that they practically tell us are to generate “optimism” as “Treepers” should be “optimistic” at all times. All that is being done here is the following:

              1. Realism is being redefined as “Pessimism” which absolutely MUST cause “Inertia.”
              2. Complacency is being redefined as “Optimism.” Complacency is what breeds inertia. If you know that something terrible will result if something is not corrected, most people will continue the effort to find someway to affect positive change since they see danger. In this case, the danger is the loss of the country. You actually found your own contradiction by wondering why pessimists bother coming in here. You don’t understand this since the “pessimism” should be making them “inert.” You concede at once that they are not inflicted with “inertia.”

              I always wonder why those who “Trust the Plan” keep coming in here, since they JUST KNOW everything will turn out just the way they want it to turn out. If all we have to do is just “be patient,” Trust (Insert SOMETHING),” and “Enjoy the Show,” why are YOU here?

              Just because I have done a realistic appraisal of this situation, based on research into past incidents involving individuals presently involved in our present crisis, does not mean I MUST fall into inertia. As soon as something is discovered, I spread it far and wide on Twitter to those with bigger audiences thanas mine. I never stop trying just because I don’t “Trust the Plan.”

    Tom’s good looks are a bonus and not to be scorned. He is a perfect spokesman for the cause of government transparency and accountability and I’m sure he attracts a lot more listeners than the ugly ducks of the opposition.

    Like most of you on here I have my doubts about AG Barr because I don’t see him being more proactive on these cases, but I have to remind myself that what he’s actually done so far is telling.

    He allowed Mueller to finish his report and rather than keep it confidential, as he was permitted to do by law, he instead released it in it’s entirety. This seemingly innocuous step simultaneously achieved three important goals, first it deprived the MSM of the opportunity to speculate on what was in the report, second it exposed to the entire country just how corrupt the SC and his investigation was and third it clearly showed that not only was the President NOT GUILTY of any crime, but that the MSM had been lying to the country for the last two years.

    Being a personal friend of Bob Mueller and knowing him as well as he did and also knowing full well that Mueller wasn’t aware of what was in his own report, he didn’t stop him from appearing before Congress. What he did do was explicitly confine Mueller to the four corners of his report and make him and his team own the whole damn thing.

    He also appointed John Durham to look into the origination of the investigation into the President and this too is indicative of his demeanor. He didn’t choose some swamp creature or partisan hack to lead this charge, no he picked a guy with a solid background and a proven track record in ferreting out corrupt government officials.

    When he was blocked by the FBI, CIA and other departmental heads he went directly to the President and specifically asked for the authority to unilaterally declassify information and to pass that same information on to others. This would by necessity include both Grand Juries and Durham’s team if they are to do their jobs. Remember when he said that after taking office instead of finding the answers to his questions, he had more questions than answers? He also said that the answers he was getting didn’t hold together…meaning someone was lying.

    Yeah, we can call him a swamp creature, but until proven otherwise I prefer to think of him as a guy whose been here before and knows how this game is played in the DC swamp. I think he’s playing his own version of the game and ignoring the political BS swirling around him…let’s see what else he does before throwing him out with the rest of the garbage.

      It’s all just for show. Barr will protect the institutions and hence the people behind the illegal activity.

      There have been firings, whitewashed IG reports (more to come), letters of reprimand, etc. But there will be no indictments or prosecutions. Because it would “reflect poorly” on the institutions.

      And because the “deep state” is far deeper and broader than most folks can comprehend.

      We haven’t had a functioning-as-designed federal government in this country in decades and won’t have going forward either. It is simply the nature of the beast. And it is why they have fought so hard against PDJT. But he is one-of-a-kind and whether it is in two years or six, he will eventually be out of office. And that is no where near enough time to “drain the swamp”. And because he is one-of-a-kind, there will be no one to pick up where he left off. In another generation, elections will no longer matter and will be only for show appearances.

He is a real estate genius, a marketing genius and an entertainment genius. His has impeccable instincts and an impeccable sense of timing. He is uniquely qualified to get this done.

      The following expression comes to mind, “when you take a shot at the king, you better not miss”. The deep state took a shot at our VSGPDJT (and us) and missed.

      Similarly, when attempting to right the ship and clean out those in the deep state working against our republic, you better have your ducks in a row and not miss. If you are sitting in the White House, holding all the cards, you wait until the timing is right and all (ALL) the ducks are in a row.

      My understanding is that the OIG reports are filtered, effectively told what not to reveal to the public, by both the DOJ and FBI before the reports are released.

      The DOJ could have good reasons for not prosecuting, but over time this defense has become weak, from overuse and from the lack of results.

    Why isn’t the word entrapment used when speaking of Comey’s visits and General Flynn’s?
    to me that is what these efforts were- leading with information, and questions to get a statement or in the case of these folks a statement that can be taken out of context/misquoted?

    Listen to the description of the awards ceremony for Sater.

    A few weeks before Schiff’s announcement on Sater, far Left Buzzfeed released another bogus report stating President Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen was following President Trump’s orders to lie about an unsupported story on Russia.

    Mueller’s team in an attempt to prevent a leak investigation into it’s operations came out 24 hours later and said the story was false.

    Now we know that the entire junk report was provided to Buzzfeed by Clinton and Mueller lackey, Felix Sater.

    Update today – more evidence proving Sater is a Deep State spy ==>>
    An incredible string of tweets by @MonsieurAmerica shows without a doubt that Sater is a Deep State spy. The most damning piece of evidence in a more than 100 tweet thread is a video from Sater’s rabbi where he claims to have been at a presentation where Sater was given an award by the Deep State intelligence agencies. Sater may have used this to prove to one of his contacts that he had connections to the Deep State –

I suspect Tom and the JW crew know that their efforts are greatly appreciated by millions. Being bombarded with inane criticisms is unavoidable in today’s world of instant communication.

    I believe the DOJ can still prosecute Comey later regarding any or some of Tom’s legitimate concerns. The DOJ is either waiting to file all charges at the same time or not to file any at all. Meanwhile, the reputations of the DOJ and the FBI are still significantly damaged without a major repair.

    Whenever I watch a well done series or show that highlights the best aspects of the FBI, like “Mindhunter” based on the “true crime book “Mindhunter: Inside the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit,” I can’t avoid being depressed as I think about today’s FBI under the leadership of stonewaller Wray. It will take much more than Wray’s deflective “bias training” solution and legal obfuscations to eradicate the vast political corruption in the FBI that metastasized inside the Bureau without treatment during the Comey years and likely earlier,

    This denial of Trump’s being fallible in any way is a concern. If he never makes a mistake, that includes with personnel, which sets up circular arguments based on the assumption that he could not have made a mistake hiring someone. There has to be some kind of “plan” afoot. No, it could just be a mistake. Trump makes them from time to time as do we all.
