The Scale and Scope of the DOJ Control Agents – DOJ FISA Official Quietly Removed After IG Draft Report Sent to Bill Barr…

Rumor in the DC grapevine is that a few weeks ago Tashina Gauhar was quietly removed from her position as lawyer for the DOJ National Security Division (in charge of FISA applications).  This removal happened immediately after IG Michael Horowitz submitted his first draft report to Attorney General Bill Barr for classification review.   Ms. Gauhar now reportedly works for Boeing.
If confirmed, Gauhar’s exit in advance of the IG report could indicate helpful participation, or DOJ Main Justice may be providing cover to protect Tash Gauhar as they did with SSCI Security Director James Wolfe.  Keep eyes on a swivel, here’s why:
♦ On March 2nd, 2017, Tashina “Tash” Gauhar was one of a small group of DOJ officials who participated in a conversation that led to the recusal of Jeff Sessions from anything related to the 2016 election.  This recusal included the ongoing FBI counterintelligence investigation known as Crossfire Hurricane, later picked up (May 17th) by Robert Mueller.
Immediately following this meeting, AG Jeff Sessions announced his recusal.

The attendees for the recusal decision-making meeting (see above schedule) included Sessions’ chief of staff Jody Hunt; Criminal Chief in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Maryland, Jim Crowell; Acting Deputy AG, ¹Dana Boente; Deputy Assistant Attorney General (DAAG) in the Department of Justice National Security Division Tash Gauhar (FISA lawyer); and Associate Deputy Attorney General Scott Schools.
[Note: Tash Gauhar was lawyer for FBI Clinton case; and Scott Schools was part of drafting Clinton exoneration letter.]
This was the Main Justice group who influenced Jeff Sessions to recuse.
Now, fast-forward to May, 2017:

Tuesday May 16th, 2017 –  In Main Justice at 12:30pm Rod Rosenstein, Andrew McCabe, Jim Crowell and Tashina Gauhar are again part of another meeting.   I should note that alternate documentary evidence, gathered over the past two years, supports the content of this McCabe memo.  Including texts between Lisa Page and Peter Strzok:

[Sidebar: pay attention to the redactions; they appear to be placed by existing DOJ officials in an effort to protect Rod Rosenstein for his duplicity in: (A) running the Mueller sting operation at the white house on the same day; (B) the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel, which was pre-determined before the Oval Office meeting.]
While McCabe was writing this afternoon memo, still May 16th, Rod Rosenstein took Robert Mueller to the White House for a meeting in the oval office with President Trump and VP Mike Pence.
After six days of phone calls, emails and in person meetings, this visit to the White House was clearly Rod Rosenstein introducing Robert Mueller to the target of the investigation.  Rosenstein already knew he was going to appoint Mueller; and Mueller, along with the small group in the DOJ and FBI, already knew Mueller was going to be appointed.
Later that night (May 16th), following the Rosenstein-Mueller WH sting operation, there was a debriefing session back at Main Justice.  This evening meeting appears to be Lisa Page, Rod Rosenstein and Andrew McCabe; along with Tashina Gauhar taking notes.

[Mueller Report]

Considering the 2016 operation against candidate and president-elect Trump, as the Deputy Assistant Attorney General (DAAG) in the Department of Justice National Security Division, FISA lawyer Tash Gauhar would have a specific, material and self-interested alignment with the ongoing DOJ/FBI effort to remove President Trump.
Either Tashina Gauhar has cooperated with the Horowitz, Durham and Barr probes and left the DOJ prior to the IG report on FISA abuse (and her role therein) being made public, as part of an internal dynamic; -OR- the IG discoveries about direct and affiliated activity that surrounded Ms. Gauhar led to her pre-report exit as a Main Justice coverup.
Hope for the former; but keep an eye open for the latter.

With hindsight it is now clear the various players inside Main Justice and the FBI had a vested interest in maintaining the assault against Trump. In late 2019 everyone can see the bigger goal was against the office of POTUS. [“obstruction” etc.] All of the personnel moves should be reviewed with hindsight of the larger anti-Trump objective in mind.
Important Point – Against the known fraud that was the Trump-Russia Collusion-Conspiracy narrative, there are no visible 2016 and 2017 top-level DOJ/FBI people who didn’t participate in one form or another.
¹When Jeff Sessions became AG, Dana Boente became Acting Deputy AG, a role he would retain until Rod Rosenstein was confirmed on April 25th, 2017. [Mary McCord remained head of the DOJ-National Security Division] In 2019 Dana Boente is currently FBI chief legal counsel.
Tashina Gauhar, Jim Crowell and Dana Boente all advised Jeff Sessions to recuse himself.
With AG Jeff Sessions recused on March 2, 2017, FBI Director James Comey reported to Acting Deputy AG Dana Boente.  [Technically, Boente was still EDVA U.S. Attorney and was only ‘acting’ as Deputy AG]  Additionally, on March 31st, 2017, President Trump signs executive order 13787 making the U.S. EDVA Attorney the 3rd in line for DOJ succession.
In the period between March 2nd and April 25th – With AG Sessions recused, and without a Deputy AG confirmed, Dana Boente is simultaneously:

  • U.S. Attorney for EDVA
  • Acting Deputy AG.
  • Acting AG for all issues related to Sessions recusal.

James Comey & Dana Boente sign the April 2017 FISA renewal against Carter Page.

(Page #271 – Carter Page FISA Application)

This dynamic would later become important as notes Boente took from conversations with James Comey became evidence for Mueller’s expanded obstruction investigation.  [3/2/17 Mary McCord is still head of DOJ-NSD]
Dana Boente was head of DOJ-NSD from May 11th, 2017 through end of October 2017 when he officially announced his intent to retire.  However, the timeline gets cloudy here because Boente said he was staying on until an official replacement was announced. There’s no indication of when he actually left the DOJ-NSD or the EDVA role.
On January 23rd, 2018, FBI Director Christopher Wray announced Boente has shifted over to the FBI to be Chief Legal Counsel (replacing James Baker).  This decision is made while Weissmann and Mueller are using 19 lawyers, and 40 FBI investigators to continue their investigation of President Trump.
As FBI legal counsel Dana Boente now becomes a legal adviser to Christopher Wray while the Mueller probe is ongoing.  From the Mueller Report:

As we discovered earlier this year, Mueller’s lead FBI agent for the corrupt Russia collusion-conspiracy investigation, was David W. Archey.  Archey was selected by Robert Mueller when FBI Agent Peter Strzok was removed.  The Mueller probe took over the counterintelligence investigation May 17, 2017, a few months later Special Agent Peter Strzok was removed (July) and David W. Archey was brought in:

As David Archey arrives in August 2017, Mueller is getting the new scope memo from Rod Rosenstein.  The August scope memo authorizes the Mueller team to investigate the Steele Dossier.  There’s little doubt the entire FBI group would have known the Trump-Russia collusion-conspiracy narrative was false.  So David Archey status as lead agent has to be considered *corrupt/sketchy*; FBI activity was likely focused on the obstruction angle.
Interestingly at the conclusion of the Mueller investigation Archey was promoted by Christopher Wray to head of the Richmond, Virginia FBI field office on March 4, 2019.  This FBI field office overlaps with another FBI/DOJ filing from the EDVA.
A little more than a month after Archey takes over the Virginia FBI field office, on April 11th, 2019, the Julian Assange indictment  was unsealed in the EDVA.  From the indictment we discover it was under seal since March 6th, 2018:

(Link to pdf)

On Tuesday April 15th more investigative material was released. Again, note the dates: Grand Jury, *December of 2017* This means FBI investigation prior to….
The FBI investigation took place prior to December 2017, it was coordinated through the EDVA where Dana Boente was still, presumably, U.S. Attorney.  The grand jury indictment was sealed from March of 2018 until after Mueller completed his investigation, April 2019.

Why the delay?  Here’s where it gets interesting….
This FBI submission to the Grand Jury in December of 2017 was four months after congressman Dana Rohrabacher talked to Julian Assange in August of 2017: “Assange told a U.S. congressman … he can prove the leaked Democratic Party documents … did not come from Russia.”

(August 2017, The Hill Via John Solomon) Julian Assange told a U.S. congressman on Tuesday he can prove the leaked Democratic Party documents he published during last year’s election did not come from Russia and promised additional helpful information about the leaks in the near future.
Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, a California Republican who is friendly to Russia and chairs an important House subcommittee on Eurasia policy, became the first American congressman to meet with Assange during a three-hour private gathering at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where the WikiLeaks founder has been holed up for years.
Rohrabacher recounted his conversation with Assange to The Hill.
“Our three-hour meeting covered a wide array of issues, including the WikiLeaks exposure of the DNC [Democratic National Committee] emails during last year’s presidential election,” Rohrabacher said, “Julian emphatically stated that the Russians were not involved in the hacking or disclosure of those emails.”
Pressed for more detail on the source of the documents, Rohrabacher said he had information to share privately with President Trump. (read more)

It would appear the FBI took keen interest after this August 2017 meeting and gathered specific evidence for a grand jury by December 2017.  Then the DOJ sat on the indictment (sealed in March 2018) while the Mueller probe was ongoing; until April 11th, 2019, when a planned and coordinated effort between the U.K. and U.S. was launched. Assange was arrested, and the EDVA indictment was unsealed (link).
To me, as a person who has researched this three year fiasco; including the ridiculously false 2016 Russian hacking/interference narrative: “17 intelligence agencies”, JAR report (needed for Obama in December ’16), and political ICA (January ’17); this looked like a Deep State move to control Julian Assange because the Mueller report was dependent on Russia cybercrimes…. AND that entire narrative is contingent on the Russia DNC hack story which Julian Assange disputes.
The Weissmann/Mueller report contains claims that Russia hacked the DNC servers as the central element to the Russia interference narrative in the U.S. election. This claim is directly disputed by WikiLeaks and Julian Assange, as outlined during the Dana Rohrabacher interview.
There is the corrupt DOJ/FBI motive to shut Assange down.

There are no “good guys” in this. There are no “white hats” here. Certainly not Mueller, Rosenstein, Wray, Bowditch, Boente or Tashina Gauhar. Instead, this is a matrix of broad interests positioned only to benefit and sustain the status quo of the administrative state; and protect the larger DC community from the Trump disruption.

    Hang Them All!! PUBLICLY!!!

    • Rhi says:

      Another deep dive by Sundance, thank you sir! Question, is anybody going to do anything re all this blatant corruption exposed over the past years by many patriotic sleuths? Bondo Barr? Is it too big to take down? Stay tuned.

      • dallasdan says:

        “Is it too big to take down?”
        I remember that long ago one of SD’s commentaries included in its headline (as best I can recall), “The swamp may be too big to drain.”
        SD’s meticulous research and reasoned, logical assessments of the facts are the bases for his consistent prescience in projecting the developments and outcomes of the coup debacle.
        IMO, the likely answer to your question is, regrettably, yes.

        • ALL Of Washington is the Swamp, very few aren’t in the swamp!

          • Raptors2020 says:

            Another curious case was Rachel Brand, the third-ranking lawyer at DOJ for nine months 2017-2018. She left to join Walmart. According to Wikipedia, she was a Bushie and a big believer in NSA 702 metadata collection.
            Did she leave when she saw how misguided or misapplied her 702 theories had been? Was she just ostracized for being from the wrong tribe, in a DOJ gone hard left?
            If anyone knows about Rachel, even a little gossip, please share. It might help explain why Sessions crumbled.

        • nattyrem420 says:

          We took the swamp down in “1776” and it will happen again. When? Good Q!

        • Assange is just a shell of the man he once was. but with 100% certainty, his attorney or his supporters at Wiki and elsewhere have all the goods he once had. The evidence he can/will provide is inescapable.
          As for the “impeachment” THREAT, President Trump is going NOWHERE because ALL the trial balloons about his demise are crashing like the Hindenberg and he KNOWS IT! Remember what he told Pelosi after her charade at their last meeting: “I’ll see you at the polls”?
          Trump’s ACE in the hole is/are his supporters and I suggest we don’t ACCEPT for one minute that he isn’t going to “WIN” and that all this will go unpunished. Keep the Faith!
          As for McConnell and Co., they are clearly still Swamp Creatures, but they are fully aware of the power Trump has because the FACTS are with him and SO ARE “WE”!
          Have faith. Justice WILL prevail And, I’m not talking the DOJustice!

          • L. E. Joiner says:

            I hope you’re right.
            Where is Assange now? Can he be induced to testify about the source of the DNC emails? If it was Seth Rich, we might see an explosion beyond anything we’ve yet imagined.

        • Derrufo Konepke says:

          we are now 3 years since a presidential election,and even when Trump was elected,there is still this tide of Resistance against Trump, a sort of political process in USA where a professor would say (to a class) : “show me the direct reversal or opposite process of USA legal & political actions after Trump election versus the 1st Obama victory”. Thus what you see in USA was the opposite of normalcy in Wash DC before 2016 election and after, so far. The elitists who were in Obama govt are waging a successful battle to do illegal acts & survive intact. Time will tell if the Barr DOJ can win against, not a swamp of corruption, but an Obama/Clinton created lake…

    • Deplore Able says:

      Please remember. First, we have to give them a fair trial. Only then can we hang them.

      • Rhoda R says:

        Fair trial? In Wash DC? The chance of getting a conviction out of a DC jury is approximately nil.

        • dallasdan says:

          Agree, and therein lies the strength of the Deep State in avoiding judicial consequences for the coup attempt.

          • Bubby says:

            Agree it’s one big unbroken circle of corruption in Washington DC where everyone knows someone or is related to someone who is involved! So friends, relatives and corrupt money take precedence over WTP, the Republic and the Constitution. We’re no longer slouching towards Gomorrah we have arrived! It appears everyone in DC is jaded to the corruption. Is there an honest incorruptible person in the FBI/DOJ/IC/Department of State/Federal Judiciary in Washington DC?

        • Do you actually believe that they won’t try and be successful requesting a change of venue?
          Trust me, It’ll be the first motion filed by the Prosecution.

          • OR, they’ll simply file the case in a jurisdiction where they feel they’ll have the best chance at trying the case and leave it up to the defendant(s) to file for a change of venue.

        Once again wonderful sleuthing by our Host.
        Two points need emphasizing.
        1/ if your President is friends with our brainless prime minister Boris – why is British intelligence colluding with your Marxist intelligence services to destroy President Trump.
        2/ the question of security clearance is beyond my understanding. It would be expected that some gangster who had been fired by the government should not have access to any state secrets. Or am I being silly?

        • Retired USMC says:

      • Lucille says:

        Oh, you can bet the house that she got a very substantial golden parachute, though. She knows where gazillions of bodies are buried. Boeing obviously believes she’s worth it.
        Probably along with that gold, she’s got a doomsday brief at the ready for any and all contingencies to keep the DS from separating her head from her body.

    • ?Gunny66 says:

      She’s a lawyer………
      Recently Boeing probably needs “Lots” of lawyers.

      • WSB says:

        Yes. Oh, boy.
        From what I have been reading, there is no easy fix here.
        The wings were constructed to hold a lot more fuel but at the wrong area. They may have needed to be positioned farther back on the jet. I do not believe this is a software problem but a structural one. IMHO.
        However, this supposition may have nothing to do with Tashina being repositioned at Boeing.

        • We the people know says:

          The engines are just too big. Then they placed them too far forward, which resulted in too much lift. To counterbalance the problem of too much lift, they constructed a software fix that would force the plane into a non-recoverable nose dive, but no one told the pilots.
          You don’t have to be a Boeing designer to see the problem. You can see they were aware because they shaved a little off the bottom of the engine housing, see the flat spot underneath? How did this design progress past the drawing board?
          What a weird place for a traitor to land. Although, Tash maybe familiar with non-recoverable nose dives.

          • WSB says:

            This is the first time I have taken a look at the jet statically, and yes, the entire structure of engine and fuel-carrying wing does not look right. They are trying to fix a strudtural problem with software. Never gonna work, IMHO.
            Tash was hired to fix it!

          • tdwesselman says:

            As someone whom works for the company that makes 70% of the 737 max. And also is the person that designed and built the equipment that machines section 11 (the fuel cells) I can tell you emphatically that most of you don’t know anything beyond what you have read in the papers. You sound just like the talking heads on CNN.

        • JohninMK says:

          The fundamental problem was that Airbus upgraded the A320 family with new, larger, more efficient engines. Boeing had to react but, unlike the Airbus’s, the 737 undercarriage did not allow sufficient space under the wings for the big engines. Boeing thought that they had solved the problem by altering the nacelle of the engine, moving it forward and up. But had the effect of moving the aircraft’s center of gravity and nothing that has been done since seems to have cured the problem to the satisfaction of the World’s safety authorities.
          It now seems likely that the 737MAX will not fly again until well into next year and, when it does, may be a ‘never going to fly in that’ dead duck from the public’s perspective. This is the result of finance and marketing having the final say over safety decisions rather than engineering. Boeing poured its profits into share buybacks, financial engineering, rather than real engineering R&D on a new plane and are now backed into a corner.
          There now appears to be another issue with the existing 737NG. During the deep stripping of the existing airframes on conversion to cargo cracks were found in major supports struts for the wings. It has turned out to have been caused by very, very slightly oversized holes for the fixing bolts. This is not safety critical at the moment but hundreds of aircraft are going to have to be checked and repaired. Fortunately for Boeing, due to their warranty contracts, the main costs of this seem to be going to have to be met by their customers.

          • We the people know says:

            And, let’s not forget who grounded the 737 MAX when the FAA was dithering, President Trump.

          • amjean says:

            It is my experience working with engineers that purchasing does not interfere
            with them; they just source out the drawings and when recommendations for
            safety or cost savings enter in from outside sources (suppliers) they are most
            always ignored because the engineers are “god”.

          • WSB says:

            Unbelievable. Sounds like scrap metal. Should we short Boeing?

          • L. E. Joiner says:

            Very interesting summary. Sounds to me like a public relations disaster that is not recoverable. No one is going to want to fly in that plane with just a ‘software and training’ fix. Boeing would be smart to take the hit and withdraw the 900MAX, take them back and offer free previous-model substitutes, and steep discounts on a new airplane to be offered in two years. It would hurt, but Boeing still has Defense Department business and without any financial knowledge I’d guess could survive.

        • booger71 says:

          Doesn’t Boeing hire a lot of HB1 visa engineers? Maybe India isn’t sending their best

          • We the people know says:

            They do what they’re told or they (and their families) immediately get sent back to Bhopal.
            The threat of losing their jobs and visas is a powerful incentive to get along. A very compliant, lower-paid Indian employee offers huge advantages over any qualified American…by design.

              What a stealthy way to destroy an iconic American company. On the flip side Boeing can blame it on

      WSB – let’s not forget that Nikki Haley is now on the Boeing board of directors, after leaving the Trump administration.
      There is already talk in the RINO grapevine that she will be our first female POTUS, and she seems to be making the rounds lately. I suspect she is a chosen one.
      I don’t know exactly what this means, but as always…it’s all connected. Somewhere, Sundance has a 1-million-piece jigsaw puzzle keeping him busy.

    Wouldn’t Barr/Durham want to talk to Assange?

    • Michael Kunz says:

      Assange seems to be one of the very few who comes out of this with honour.

    • dallasdan says:

      IMO, they don’t want to hear what he has to say.

      • True. Although he holds the keys to this insane mess, he is suppressed at all costs. Are we dumb to think PDJT would not want to hear what he has to say?

        • railer says:

          Of course he wants to hear it, but his hands are tied. The Swamp and Deep State are committed to silencing Assange, and they are capable of manufacturing a “crime” he did. Flynn has had to face this same thing, and Trumps hands are tied here too. Time is the only cure here, and the conspirators have the means to avoid even that.

      • lolli says:

        Then Barr would have to admit Russia did not hack the DNC. Barr likes to pretend they did, to keep the ball rolling.

        • vladdy says:

          Doesn’t anyone in government care that Russia is irrelevant when we already know that the Awans hacked the congressional Dim computers and took all their info to Pakistan? Who cares about the campaign files when all the intel data was stolen? Never understood that. (Oh, yeah — can’t blame that on PDT.)

    • beach lover says:

      Reports are Assange is not in good health. I wouldn’t be surprised if he isn’t being poisoned. No one in the Deep State wants him to testify. Of course can we trust the Brits either? They seem to have had a hand in all this.

    • Bubby says:

      Jay I agree but we need more than talk. What documents does he have and where are they that support his statement that the Russians didn’t hack the DNC’s computer? I dream that Sundance is able to get those documents untouched and lay them over what he has put together already! Perhaps Sundance should go pay Assange a jail house visit?

              Remember when Obama loaned $2B to Brazil’s state owned oil co, which Soros happens to own a huge stake in? Remember when Obama stopped US offshore drilling due to the spill, which just so happened to help Brazil’s offshore oil production to increase substantially?

      • Sherri Young says:

        The heavily-redacted version of the original Carter Page FISA application uses assertions that Donald Trump was too soft on Russia and might be unwilling to send lethal aid to Ukraine. The application references a news article that almost certainly was this opinion piece by Josh Rogin in the WaPoo which is available on the Wayback Machine:
        https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/global-opinions/trump-campaign-guts-gops-anti-russia-stance-on-ukraine/2016/07/18/98adb3b0-4cf3-11e6-a7d8-13d06b37f256_story.html
        The opinion piece was published during the RNC convention. It was written in the context of policy disputes in the platform committee negotiations. It does not stop with Russia/Russia/Russia, but states that Trump wanted a decreased US commitment to NATO.
        That this short article made it into the Carter Page FISA application and in the manner it was used is a clear view into the Deep State trying to control policy.
        (Interestingly, the piece seems to reflect what is said to be Eric Ciaramella’s stance on Ukraine/Russia and weapons. Obviously, it lines right up with Vindman’s.)
        It also reflects McNoName’s too. Try searching on “john mccain josh rogin”. Rogin was/is a McNoName admirer. Considering what we know, this article stands a strong chance of being at least a part of what McNoName and Harry Reid gave to the FBI that made it into the FISA application.

      That’s easy. The FISA Court is nothing but a rubber-stamping deep-state co-conspirator that approves any “verified” request dropped on its desk. Even something that is so transparently corrupt as a request to investigate Hillary Clinton’s top presidential contender, Donald J. Trump.
      “Donald Trump is conspiring with Russia to destroy our Democracy. Please approve this FISA warrant to investigate his campaign.”
      Someone, someone at the FISA Court was complicit, but they’re going to say they were lied to.

        I worry about Barr/Durham and to a lesser extent Horowitz, but the above forces are also pressing on them. I believe it is probably already too late for Barr/Durham to bury the facts; that strong evidence will come out for all to see.
        All of the above — a knowing public, strong evidence of law-breaking, plus PDJT’s energy and presidential powers — will almost certainly force just & significant prosecutions of the worst offenders, with many lesser offenders left in disgrace.

    FORMER Obama officials? I don’t think so. Hillary? MAYBE with threats of Arkanticide,..but no.

    They are the center of the corruption in D.C., and the source for the origin of the Coup. Until THEY are taken on, head on, the swamp will not be drained, no one will be punished, and the coup attempt will continue.
    Epstien was a ‘hit’, and Assange has been nutralised. The clean up continues apace, and Barr is Bondo man, playing his bagpipes.
    To believe anything less, is wishful thinking, after all, NO ONE gets confirmed, unless Mitch says yes; just liten to the,Ratcliff interview, where he explains why he withdrew his nomination.

    Barr / Durham goals are NOT for a cover up as there is too much real digging going on. A coverup would never involve so much work. On the other hand, cleanup and repair of DOJ, FBI, CIA, etc. would require it. Further, prosecution has a place, but I am uncertain how much is necessary, how ever much it would be gratifying.
    In the end the chief goal is to make sure the monkey business is prevented in the future, and to get the bad apples out, thus exposing them is needed. Moreover, the foreign involvement too has to be exposed.
    The one danger in gratifying prosecution is making these Obama / Hillary justice vampires into martyrs for the left.

      She (Tash) would not have been permitted to join the post Mueller interview strategy aka download & eavesdropping on Oval Office conversation transmitted by Muellers forgotten phone. Admission required more than the role of “scribe”
      No loose ends, all “Inner circle” are bound by mutual crime and risk & cause, rather than oath & honor to country

  32. Blind no Longer says:

    Think of all the information, everything damaging to governments and individuals that Wikileaks has published over the years. Lots of things much more damning to the US than these DNC emails…but this, the DNC/Podesta info is what makes the US and UK finally go in to get Assange.
    Things that make you go hmmm.

    It’s noted that “Dana Boente is simultaneously: U.S. Attorney for EDVA Acting Deputy AG.Acting AG for all issues related to Sessions recusal. James Comey & Dana Boente sign the April 2017 FISA renewal against Carter Page.”
    Wow. Talk about being caught in a trap. No way out.

  35. JL says:

    Is it possible she’s not a cooperating witness, but perhaps the IG came to the conclusion that she acted unethically and violated policy, and perhaps was referred for prosecution?
    It seems to me that would be grounds for termination, which is not typically done publicly, and in this case will be described in the IG report?
    Why are the only two options cooperation or coverup? It seems to me that perhaps this is jumping the gun a bit.

    • WRB says:

      My first thought is that Boeing would not hire her if she had a pending prosecution. So I guess no indictment for her.
      On the other hand, she was up to eye-balls in the coup, with documented meetings, and signed FISA applications. You cannot cover this up, you can only brush it aside as “unimportant” (see Clinton e-mail investigation). But Horowitz is not an out-and-out fraud (unlike say Strzok or Comey), and will document the obvious (stuff that has been written down.) So she is guilty of breaking FBI rules and procedures; probably just enough to convince her to cooperate, and not enough to fry her (but it would cost her a lot in legal fees).
      So my guess is she cooperated, staying on as long as necessary, and at the end, was told you were a bad girl, you have to leave.

  36. mptc says:

    So to set the table…
    On one hand we have the impeachment proceedings. Pelosi, Shiff etal running around like their hair is in fire…and with such urgency.
    On the other hand we have Barr and Durham with an investigation that are now criminal in nature and Horowitz finalizing his FISA investigation.
    Here is a scenario that worries me to no end….
    Barr, Durham and Horowitz, knowing they have damning evidence on the deep state and the democrats in an effort to protect the establishment tell the deep state and the democrats to cease and desist all impeachment inquiry; to cease and desist all Russian/Ukraine collusion inquiries, to drop all things anti-Trump in exchange for the complete whitewashing of the entire Barr, Durham, Horowitz investigations.
    Both sides agree and those most guilty leave the government or in the politicians cases they retire or decide not to seek re-election ever. Everyone gets their full pensions, no one goes to jail, everyone plays nice and Trump is president for a second term, Michael Flynn is exoneratedand
    AND the establishment (deep state) lives.

  37. DebbieSemms says:

    I will never forget how gung ho many of our GOP senators were to have Mueller investigate Trump. Lindsey Grahm so much so that he even wanted legislation preventing Trump from firing him,

    I live in Colorado, obviously. So what exactly are my taxes supporting? My Countries demise? I’m paying to destroy my children’s and my grand children’s future? Like hell I am, Burn this sh** down, I say.
    Funny thing is, not really funny, these people/things don’t just want to break US they want our children for their pleasure. We are talking some sick puppies here, they thrive on the thought of abortions. Sorry folks but we need more God like interventions, we are dealing with fallen beings reincarnate to resemble humans, that thrive on the destruction of ‘In God’s Image’.
    Good news is we have a Warrior in House, President Donald J Trump, I believe chosen by God for these final hours. Look at it, he has been giving everyone, every criminal a chance to choose whom they will serve. I’m gonna say this is pretty biblical here.
    I think someone once said, let the wheat and the tares grow up together that way when they are mature it will be easy to discern the good from the bad. Paraphrasing of course.
    This is it, so exciting, the final act in this play.
    I know I’m rambling but bear with me for another thought. If God is our father then our father would never allow US to suffer really, it may seem like suffering but I would venture to say it’s a virtual classroom, a pretty advanced one at that. My earthly father I love, but we’re not close, don’t really know him well. But I am a father of 4 beautiful children whom I would give my life for, that’s how I envision our heavenly father’s love. I know the only way I would allow them to go through this life, the life we are all experiencing right now here, is so they could learn to have faith in me, and learn these crucial lessons in this life.
    Anyway I know this probably didn’t make a lot of sense except to me but I felt impressed to share. God bless Sundance, all our patriots and Donald Trump for giving up everything because he loves this country and wants to give something back. I say we increase his salary to $2 dollars a year, just imagine double the DJT!

The foundation is bad now.. meanwhile, there are people upstairs, having a party,, dancing and listening to strange music.

      I believe God put President Trump in the Oval Office to put this country under Him again. I think President Trump is starting with 9/11 and cleaning the swamp forward. He is sick and tired of seeing his great country losing everything, money, freedoms, respect, etc. Many people may be forgiving of corruption and just say get the country going and look to the future. I don’t think President Trump is that person. The Deep State knows he is not that person!

    Has anybody noticed Lindsey is not chumming it up with President Trump lately ? Seems to be Meadows , McCarthy and Gaetz have been at a few events with Potus lately .. on this Tash lady I remember RR got extremely upset when he was being questioned about the FISA and her name came into the fold and he got extremely angry and defended her vigorously.

    I get the sense from Strzok and Page texts that they were displeased with Tashina “Tash” Guahar on that pivotal day, 5/16/17.
    Strzok: “Because Tash doesn’t relay sh*t.”
    Page: Tash calling. Super.
    Strzok: Tash have anything worth saying at 11:36?
    Poor Tash. Sounds like highschool mean girls talking behind her back. She probably told Horowitz she “unfriended” them when the texts surfaced. Sheesh.

  45. Pelayo says:

    Tashina Guajuar was also one of three FBI agents that were tasked with “reviewing” Clinton’s emails on Weiners laptop. Its amazing how in this huge bureaucracy Tashina and Peter Strozk keep appearing at every facet of the effort to whitewash the Clinton email investigation and frame Trump.
    If she did leave to escape Horowitz interviewing her it’s for naught because Durham doesnt have the same restrictions.

  49. Alison Wilson says:

    I think that Tash probably cooperated and then left on her own. The agreement may have been to agree with her removal and then quietly leave town altogether. My reasons to thinks so?
    1) Sadly we are seeing that NO ONE ever gets prosecuted from the Clinton/Obama group so she would have had nothing to fear by staying.
    2) Her job at Boeing would be in jeopardy when the reports are released if she doesn’t come out of this looking better than a swamp creature that conspired to bring down a sitting president. By leaving quietly she can claim that when presented with the information of what the rest had been doing and the part she unknowingly played (she will claim ignorance, I am sure), she can hold her head up high claiming status as a victim.
    The people remaining are fighting for their careers. The ones who have left still seem to have a finger in the Washington swamp pie. She, unless she is a lobbyist for Boeing, has left the swamp entirely.

    Bit more on Tashina. The number of non-white names that support or participated in this three year coup, and who agitate in general for the destruction of America, is simply astounding. Convinces me 110% that immigration should’ve always been limited to whites from countries with values similar to USA….which is what I understand immigration law WAS until that SOB drunk murderer Ted Kennedy’s 1961 bill designed to crack the dam and allow America to become contaminated.

        115th Congress, 2nd Session
        Issue: Vol. 164, No. 57 — Daily Edition
        A RAID ON CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS
        The SPEAKER pro tempore (Mr. Comer). Under the Speaker’s announced
        policy of January 3, 2017, the Chair recognizes the gentleman from
        Texas (Mr. Gohmert) for 30 minutes.
        SNIP
        ” I think he is also trying to provoke the President to firing Mueller
        because Mueller knows he doesn’t have anything right now. This is a
        last-ditch effort to try to find something, try to get something, get
        somebody to testify against the President, even if it is a lie just as
        it was that put Sergeant Derrick Miller in prison for life whose parole
        hearing I came back and testified before last week. It is not that hard
        to get people to testify to a lie against somebody else when you are
        threatening to take everything they care about away.
        Rosenstein needs to be stopped. He was involved in the original
        Russia uranium investigation as a U.S. attorney. He should never have
        been allowed to appoint a special counsel. If Rosenstein had any
        decency and ethics about himself, he should have told Jeff Sessions: I
        am not the guy who can do this because I was involved in that Russia
        uranium investigation that enriched Hillary Clinton’s foundation $145
        million; I can’t do this.
        But since he is not ethical, he is not moral, and he doesn’t mind
        keeping the limitations running while they are looking elsewhere rather
        than at him and Mueller who is also the FBI Director involved in that
        Russia investigation where Russia was trying to get our uranium,
        neither one of them should have been able to accept.
        Rosenstein has got to go, and his assistant who so often keeps the
        good people who supported President Trump in the dark, Tash Gauhar, she
        needs to go. She needs to go, and Rosenstein should follow right out
        the door. Those people are doing more damage over there. They have got
        to go, and then we can try to salvage this country and our
        constitutional Republic.”

    “Ms. Tashina Gauhar now reportedly works for Boeing….DOJ Main Justice may be providing cover to protect Guahar as they did with SSCI Security Director James Wolfe… In 2019 Dana Boente is currently FBI chief legal counsel.”
    Meanwhile, the unrelenting DOJ prosecution of Gen Flynn continues after 2 plus years of bankruptcy and then Roger Stone’s trial will begin in a D.C. federal court in Washington on November 5th “for allegedly lying to Congress about his interactions with Wikileaks during the 2016 campaign.” Same old story so far…except the politically corrupt Mueller Dream Team has been easily and seamlessly replaced by the politically corrupt Schiff-Pelosi-Nadler Impeachment Dream Team. .

  56. Bill says:

    If it’s credible, and that’s a big IF, McCabe memo of 5/16/17 leaves little doubt that Rosenstein was/is a black hat co-conspirator and did volunteer to wear a wire to record the President.
    Very possible McCabe tweeked the memo language to protect himself…who knows for sure…?

Meanwhile, the nation remains forced to carry on in the handcuffed state of “stay tuned”. Judgement is coming, Kids, it is coming.

          If that was the plan and the deal was made, then it would have ended without the continued effort to remove Trump. It would be unlike Trump to make a deal of this kind and since they are still going after him in absurd and unrelenting ways, I would say that is fair indication of no such deal.

Abuse will continue with no charges to those who should be indicted for treason. comby, strok, page etc. many many more should be indicted. I fear it may not happen. One thing for sure The President will be re-elected. And it will be another 4 years of little getting done. Even if the Republicans take back the house.

        The President is keeping them all busy creating legislative fiction while PDJT changes the direction of the country. Barr is part of that diversion.
        The prosecution of the traitors of this Republic, is not going to happen, in earnest, until after we stomp the Democrats in the 2020 election.

            If our form of Government is so great,
            Then it must perform above and beyond sedition.
            The voter becomes the firewall.
            President Trump plans are to overwhelm the voter with prosperity, freedom and most of all hope.
            We must have a vote that overcomes fraud and mischief.
            We must have a vote of American citizens,
            All races, denominations, gender and age group.
            That will not slay the beast,
            But it will give us 4 more years of the leaders with more power to fight the beast.
            If we can’t do this peacefully, then I’m not in a form of government who values human life with virtue and moral clarity.
            We need to win and win big.
            Our President is doing an amazing job of making that happen.
            He is putting us first, then he’ll go get the bad guys.
            Remember, President Trump is in each of their heads when the black hats go try to sleep, every night.
            Our President is our sovereignty in his head when he dreams of the pursuit of happiness for ‘all’ of us.

        • When the scandals are 100% fake, completely manufactured, and without any facts or evidence, the number of fake impeachment investigations will be unlimited (sort of). The only limit will be how fast their fiction writers can churn out tall tales.

      • I agree that most of these deals are going to be worked out behind the scenes. Though I tend to disagree. He will have to issue a report on what happened. With the cat out of the bag as much as it is if he is going to restore any credibility back to the DOJ which democrats think is fine and republicans know it is corrupted. He will have to hold some people accountable. The reason they changed it to criminal was for leverage. Without a doubt deals will be made but Barr will ultimately have to restore the reputation. No way of doing that without some level of accountability.

      Imagine that you become the captain of an aircraft carrier. One that has all kinds of discipline problems, performance issues and moral problems. Just because you are the captain you cannot fix everything in one day/year/several years. This is how becoming the AG will take time and a lot of help from outsiders to clean out this mess. Just like the carrier, there are many sub-departments that have corruption within them. Info coming into the DoJ that goes first to a deep stater may take months to surface deliberately to slow down the investigations. How is Barr supposed to know about this? Wray is another problem that cannot be solved overnight. He obviously was not part of the hoax but seems to be covering it up. Why? Barr literally came out of a wealthy retirement to handle this and is not going to succumb to the DC PC!

        Exactly, the left’s entire ideology is dependent on having victim classes. The oppressed v. the oppressors. You can’t be the champion of the oppressed, if there is no oppressive dragon to slay. When a new dragon is needed, it must be conjured up.
        When power is secured by these ideologues, the real dragons take off their social justice masks to rule and reign over their devout and everyone else with fire and force. Always.
        Rule of thumb: Anybody (or ideology) that will ask/require you to lie for them, to ignore and ridicule verifiable facts, to never question or dissent, to put them into power by any means necessary, because their noble end justifies the means, you can take it to the bank that they are lying to you, that you are merely a temporary necessary “means”, and once the end is achieved, your fervent belief in the cause will be a liability for the very people you put into power. From beginning to end, it’s all a lie.
        I also pray for the left’s (and everyone’s) eyes to be opened to the truth too. We all need wisdom and discernment to recognize what’s true and what’s a lie.

      Question regarding the COUP plottters,,,,,
      Does that make a difference in how the public perceives the data? reads the data? questions the reason?
      Russia hack = CNN says dont read them and it covers up the Bernie stolen nomination via delegates. Didnt people dies that delivered lawsuit papers to the DNC regarding Bernie?
      Seth Rich Leak = ? what different public view other than Russia could of been seen?
      AGAIN – Why was it so important to have the SERVER hacked versus leaked via Seth Rich?
      OH I SEE – from this article! THE COUP RELIES on the RUSSIA ANGLE to start the Mueller BS (recusal Sessions BS) .. This is literally a FREAKING OVERTHROW AND ABUSE OF THIS GOVERNMENT, NOT JUST A DIRTY POLITICAL TRICK

    • DeWalt says:

      Yes. The trouble really starts at the local level. Take Charlie Crist. I remember what a Shyster he was in Pinellas Co.,in Florida. but people still pushed him right up the ladder. If we snuff their careers at the local levels and be alot more vigilant about who we allow to progress we can control alot more at the top.

  59. Ausonius says:

    The White Rose was the code name for a group of students and a professor in Munich who started an underground organization against Hitler and his National Socialists.
    In one of their last pamphlets urging the Germans to stop supporting the war, to stop the silence, and to start preparing for the end, they wrote that everyone needed to note and remember the smaller fish swimming with the Nazis, for it was especially these smaller, nearly anonymous individuals who by the thousands had helped the National Socialists ruin Germany and Europe.
    I note the extent of the amoral, Nietzschean will-to-power aspect of this coup d’etat and am unfortunately not surprised by how many people (dozens? hundreds?) with high levels of education have obviously felt no compunction whatsoever about assisting in an illegal coup d’etat.
    Keep in mind: The Left has no morals. They have only the illusory moral from the mirror-masturbatory pleasure of telling themselves that they are creating good by their actions, because by definition whatever they do is always for the good, and so nothing they do is ever wrong. The Left defines only their own actions to be good, and cannot step back and disinterestedly observe whether those actions are Good or Evil (capital G, capital E). If those actions fail, then what needs to happen is that one needs a higher dosage of those actions. Failure because of Evil does not exist, because Leftist actions ipsis factis can never be evil.
    For the Leftists, Evil with a capital “E” does not exist except as the antithesis to Leftist action. And so anything a Leftist does for the cause is good, because a higher idea of Good and Evil in their opinion does not exist.
    The “smaller fish” have absorbed this philosophy from our patently Leftist kulcher (check the lyrics – if the term is not laughable for what passes as “songs” these days – which they are plugged into, check the plots of the movies and T.V. shows, etc), from their possibly non-religious parents, and from their Leftist teachers and professors. Remember the mantra of the 1960’s: If it feels good,it can’t be wrong.” Opposing the presidency of Donald Trump makes them feel good about themselves -they are the REAL patriots! – and so nothing they do is wrong.
    Which is why everything was kept secret and dark!
    Those who deny the existence of a conscience prove themselves wrong with their furtive actions.

    Like the largest fish leading them, these small Leftists are also culpable of a great crime, but like the German National Socialists, they will undoubtedly be unable to see the immorality of their actions, since such thinking is alien to them.

      Excellent points.

    • amjean says:

      It is totally astonishing to me as I go through my daily life with family, friends and work
      and meet up with the no nothing, non thinking people who, with no provocation,
      have something negative to say about President Trump. Usually the words racist,
      sexist and paid by the Russians comes up. Its as if in order to belong to the “club”,
      they need to let everyone know their political position….based on no facts, no research and no knowledge.

      • Ausonius says:

        Why does a BILLIONAIRE want to run the risk of taking bribes? And where is the proof? How much was deposited and where and by whom?
        How does a racist support Israel, and have increasing support from minorities in America? Why would a racist help minorities to get employed?
        Sexism? Well, here is why your contacts believe in Leftist Fairy Tales:
        …The (president’s) unattainable feat?
        Hiring an astounding number of women for senior-level positions in the White House.
        Luckily for women everywhere, in 2018 it has finally been accomplished.
        Naturally, Vogue has written about it. Cosmopolitan has shouted it from the rooftops, as has MSNBC and every other liberal news outlet.
        If only that last part were true.
        Despite impressive hiring practices during his first year in the White House, President Donald Trump has received little to no credit for his choice of women for the most senior positions on his cabinet, as well as the West Wing.
        In fact, <b<the mainstream media only selectively reported on the male appointees of the Trump administration, claiming that he was appointing “more white and male than any first cabinet since Reagan.” This myth was perpetuated by Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) comments as well as media reports that Trump only valued the opinions of “guys named Steve.”
        The New York Times even reported on Jan. 13, 2017 — a full week before Trump even took the oath of office or set foot in the oval office — that he apparently preferred men over women for senior roles.

            One thing I notice is, those people are very influenced by pop culture. They’re the types who say “Have you seen—-” (insert name of lastest gore-filled movie or other “entertainment”) and say “I think they’re funny” or some other excuse about thugs in the “music” industry.
            They have no interest in researching politics,but yeah, they’ll speak up about it anyway. I’s horrid, when they’re nice people in other ways, but acting as “useful idiots” though living traditional lives with the kids in the suburbs… and picking up on the undercurrent that it’s “not cool” to be pro-PDT.
            Frankly, I wish they would keep quiet in this area that they know nothing about. They hurt us all by giving the left the exuse “See, just your ordinary family with kids, and they hate PDT, too”…when they don’t know enough to hate him…they’re just going along with the politics de jour (so they believe.) Just a little research would turn them, but they won’t do it. Not interested enough to know, but interested just enough to talk in that area.

        • Peppurr says:

          Fortunately, my husband’s political rants against the left wore off on my children. It all started in Grade 4 when the 1984 Book became part of their Social Studies curriculum when they were 9 yrs old!!! Thankfully, today, they are both solid Conservatives.

          • fractionalexponent says:

            Agree Peppurf. My girlfriend in highschool gave me 1984 and Atlas Shrugged as gifts. My daughter in Staten Island flies a “Don’t Tread On Me” Gadsden flag over the house, despite the fears of her husband.
            It’s not the fault of schools if some folks kids end up commies.

              And we must encourage cons/trads — young or mid-life career changers — to go into teaching. It’s imperative. It needs to be a movement. Not to enourage all, like some dumb “Teach for America,” but specifically conservatives encouraging those they know. This is an area we could take back, one school at a time. School boards are not enough. They need to be in the classroom and at all the teacher “trainings.” (indoctrinations.)

    • Janus says:

      Good comment. For the left, the end justifies the means. That is why we see Schiff, Pelosi & Co. trashing the Constitution and willing to risk even Civil War in order to remove the President from office. These are demonic, soul-less creatures who are only interested in maintaining their power and willing to do–literally–anything to keep it.
      The administrative state believes IT runs this country (not the elected leaders) and they–and they alone–are the anointed leaders. Their “morality” is the belief in their superiority (same as the Nazis), and hence the justification for the ongoing Coup d’etat.

    • rmramerica says:

      You could not be more correct! – An example is during WWII, the French formed their “resistance” movement (from which the Dems used the term “resistance”) against the Nazis. France was a very Catholic country and the acts they used, lying, stealing, cheating, the destruction of property and murder when necessary were all sins to the church. The French appealed to Pope Pius XII for a dispensation in/to fight the Nazis and still be practicing Catholics. The Pope granted it in a letter because – when “good” (resistance) fights “evil” anything, any tool is accepted to stop it. (paraphrasing) The important point is these people believe that they are fighting evil, and anyone who contests them must represent evil, for they (liberals, Democrats) represent “good”. There was a term used at the time, WWII, and afterwards by historians to describe this dispensation/exception by the church, wish I could remember it.

    • StanH says:

      No question. The entire federal bureaucracy exists for one thing, self preservation. Every agency, every law, is designed to diminish The Constitution and the Bill of Rights to usher in the NWO. “If it feel good, do it — The ends justify the means — Stick it to the man — Turn on, tune in, drop out. ” The creation of the hyphenated American (African-American) all designed to “divide and conquer.” The intentional confusing of what’s a little boy and what’s a little girl. LBGQTFRUIT as a real force and that represent a majority of thought in this country and around the world. The contorting of the meaning of Holy Matrimony:
      For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother
      and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh,
      So then, they are no longer two but one flesh.
      Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”
      (Matt 19: 5,6)
      Ask yourself why? In order to create theoretical Utopia, they must destroy the closest thing to Utopia that has ever existed on planet earth, the USA. They must replace faith in a higher being, God, with faith in government. The Founders knew if you did not enshrine Judaeo-Christian ideals in our founding there would be no glue that binds a people.
      I’m not trying to be sanctimonious, but it’s imperative we understand their method of attack. All things foundational in this country must be destroyed.
      The “Ivy League” have been stamping out these statist droids for decades filling the bureaucracy with untouchable apparatchiks who get real pleasure from terrorizing Free America.
      You are exactly correct, and using your meme, in many cases these swamp denizens are akin to Hitler Youth and do not developed the gray matter to understand where they are being led and that they are disposable. Perhaps it would be good in there very expensive education look into Stalin-Mao purges and how the “intellectuals” fared.
      Right on Ausonius.

    • 7delta says:

      Those who deny the existence of a conscience prove themselves wrong with their furtive actions.
      Following the Revolutionary War, while Virginia was debating and establishing its State laws regarding how to determine the mental competence to understand right from wrong of someone who committed a crime, but may have or claim mental incapacity, Thomas Jefferson wrote (paraphrased) that a person who believes they have done no wrong has no need to lie or to hide what they’ve done. A person who does either or both knows they have done wrong.
      Leftists often use the excuse that people are too stupid to know what’s good for them, so the masses must be deceived to “nudge” or “push” them into acquiescing to their superiors. Think Jonathan Gruber and many others.
      Even if these people have convinced themselves they’re intellectually and morally superior, their deceit, and its many iterations, proves they know their ideas are not benevolent and cannot withstand debate or challenge from people they know aren’t stupid, which, as you wrote above IOW, nullifies and exposes their fragile superiority lie. 
      It’s all a self-induced delusion that when frustrated is glued together only by unhinged childish emotion.
      Really good post, Ausonius.

      • Ausonius says:

        “Leftists often use the excuse that people are too stupid to know what’s good for them,”

    I’ve noted on other posts that all of these folks probably had window offices with doors that closed or at the least interior offices with doors that closed. None of these actors lived/worked in cubicle land. Cubicle folks were told not to knock on closed doors. I’m sure any outside people that came in for “meetings” were taken to special access offices so cubicle folks wouldn’t see them walking thru cubicle land. There may be “white” hats in these agencies, but they are worker bees. Granted, live/work in DC probably not white hats, but I don’t think cubicle land folks had an active hand in any of this.
    Of course since all conducted by “office with doors” folks, that puts them closer to the very “top” if before inauguration and close to the prior top if after inauguration.

    https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2019/07/21/important-video-confirms-butowsky-lawsuit-claim-julian-assange-told-ellen-ratner-dnc-emails-received-from-seth-rich-not-a-russian-hack/
    I’m surprised he didn’t include this in this current thread as additional info that could prove the DNC emails were not given to Wikileaks by Russians but via an internal source as Assange says because if true it DESTROYS this entire fraud and frame job as a setup from Day 1.
    Could this be why the FIB is trying so hard IMO to fight the Ed Butowsky/Ty Clevenger and their Seth Rich investigation lawsuit? Go to Ty’s blog at lawflog.com and he sure seems to think so.
    This is why I hope Sidney once Gen. Flynn’s case is dismissed, joins up with Mr. Clevenger and they prove it wasn’t the Russians who gave Wikileaks those DNC emails.
    Think about this. We have two living, breathing people who have potentially CRITICAL, FIRST HAND evidence IMO about the most important case in America and the President of the United States.
    Surely either Durham or Barr have spoken with these people, right???
    So my question to Ristvan…….
    Is there any reason why Durham or Barr may have not deposed those who potentially have first hand knowledge of the DNC emails getting to Wikileaks?
    And if they haven’t at this point, what does that tell you or us?

    • redthunder238 says:

      I have about 2% of the intelligence of Ristvan but can clearly see that Barr isn’t trying to expose any of these scumbags or their lies. He’s 100% Bondo.

      • Linda K. says:

        I don’t agree redthunder that Barr is Bondo, but if he is, he is oir Bondo. He is not on the side of the coup.

      • 1riot1ranger says:

        He has the Democrats absolutely enraged. You are completely wrong. He was a great pick. I guess we could have kept Sessions.

        • redthunder238 says:

          Except we all know the Democrats are full of it 100% of the time. Everything is upside-down with them. They say one thing and then do the exact opposite. And seeing that they seem to have blackmail material on everyone but Trump what makes you think they don’t have any on Barr, who has a VERY sketchy past? I think the whole thing is a sham. What are they even “enraged” about? Barr hasn’t done ANYTHING to ANY of them and there’s even several DS mfs still in power, still covering for people, still redacting documents, still declining to prosecute. Most of them under Barr and he’s LETTING THEM DO IT! Wake up man!’

          • vladdy says:

            That is an awfully long string of posts dealing with one topic only — Barr is Bad. I would not be surprised if he was….but no one can be sure of it at that stage, which makes me leery when I see someone sounding as though they know or desperately want others to start saying and thinking “Whatever Barr says is full of it.” Why would a citizen be so intent on getting that one message, undiluted, across to others?

          • 1riot1ranger says:

            Keep in mind that willy-nilly indicting people without rock solid cases is going to make PDJT’s administration look bad prior to the election. PDJT does a lot better playing the victim, and he is doing fairly well at that right now; could be better. I trust Barr to bring out the big guns when it is necessary. Until then, he can build his case quietly.

            • redthunder238 says:

              They could have had rock solid cases over a year ago. The report on McCabe’s “lack of candor” came out how long ago? They’re clearly trying to run out the clock.

    • WhiteBoard says:

      They dont want to tip their hand! think about it!!!!!
      every step they do is being seen – so they want the COUP to feel they are winning.
      They are allowing the impotent IG to do the investigative work (BECAUSE THE COUP FEEELS THIS CAN BE FLUSHED AS ALWAYS DOWN THE TOILET).. then Barr and Durham can easily SWOOP in and collect all the COUP at once – depose -and end this crap.
      BARR HAS TO LOOK like a loser to us…cause its what the COUP is seeing also..
      it is brilliant how they are letting the IG legwork this investigation BUT taking it and running with it at the right time, versus the old way of FLUSHING IT .

  68. Bogeyfree says:

    If virtually all in power and key decision making authority are possible participants, who is left to trust and help Durham do all his investigating work?
    After reading this article, Durham would get more help and support from the local people in Waterloo, Iowa than Main Justice IMO.
    I ask again, going forward if you are on a jury trial where the DOJ and/or the FBI are involved in the case in ANYWAY, how are you going to be able to trust anything they say or any evidence they produce???

    • redthunder238 says:

      What makes you think Durham himself is to be trusted?

      • Linda K. says:

        I am thinking you cannot be trusted actually.

        • redthunder238 says:

          This is unreal. Countless people on here have accused me of ROLCON. I have a Pinochet tattoo ffs. I HATE the Left. lol

          • 1riot1ranger says:

            Pinochet was a dictator. We don’t do that here.

            • redthunder238 says:

              My point was that I’m not a Shareblue ROLCON punk. And yeah, a dictator that HATED Communists. We need someone like him in this Country. These Leftists are out of control. You understand there’s only one way to stop them at this point right?

            • He .. gen.Augusto Pinochet been patriot never involved in Chilean politics up to Sept.1973..when he said to socialist/communist Allende enough is enough and imposed military takeover with martial law to stop anarchists/communists/socialists to overrun CHILE. Only leftists and stupid/naïve /gullible/blind& demoncraps public here had problem with his rule….

            • 1riot1ranger..even here in USA LEAST 60% POPULATION GETTING IDEA WHAT RULE of socialists/communists/anarchists would be can Mr.Barr/Durham change it ….his time running do something running very fast..

  69. Bogeyfree says:

    The other thing Americans should rise up against immediately is by simply stating if they sit on ANY jury case where the FBI has supplied hand written notes they should IMO immediately reject that document.
    It is time for the people to force the FIB to use video recordings as their hand written words can no longer be trusted IMO.
    It is we the people who serve on these juries and it is we the people who must stand up and force change.

    • Sherri Young says:

      There was a headline this that said a judge was unable to seat a panel of jurors who might convict on a marijuana charge.

  70. Bogeyfree says:

    Does Barr realize that over half of the entire country DOES NOT TRUST the DOJ or FBI anymore??
    To continue with DECLINE TO PROSECUTE is NOT the solution!

    • redthunder238 says:

      For all the guilty DS scumbags it’s absolutely the solution.

    • Sentient says:

      Does he care?

      • Zippy says:

        No, because without OFFICIALLY exposing the perps by PROSECUTING THEM he knows that the vast majority of our current idiocracy will never know even remotely the EXTREME seriousness of what went on with SpyGate and now UkraineGate. The Deep State (at least 80% of government at all levels according to my previously justified estimate) and their lapdog media will make certain of that.
        With a propagandized idiocracy such things are easy to cover up. Only intelligent, truly informed individuals will realize The Republic is long dead and what the hell can they do about that considering they are surrounded by a vast idiocracy?
        At this point I only come here to further confirm how incredibly corrupt the system actually is. I long ago totally locked in my vote for Trump in 2020, as if there was any question of that anyway. Anyone with even half a brain should be able to tell from the constant attacks against him that HE is the ONLY one to vote for in 2020.

    • Janus says:

      I think Barr does know this–he just doesn’t care. Why should he, who is going to do anything substantive about it?
      Trump? He’s tied down by the Lilliputians in DC. We the People? Well, that would require force of the type the FBI is hyper-focused on interdicting. You see, the FBI is not for the protection of the American people, they are for the protection of the Ruling Class from the American people.

      • Will Hunt says:

        That’s exactly what Great Britain believed.

        • Zippy says:

          And look what it took to fix that. If you think that’s going to happen again and that it wouldn’t be shut down before it even began by our modern government surveillance state, and wouldn’t be vilified in the media, please give me a warning before answering so I won’t have a mouthful of coffee when I read it.

  71. Carrie says:

    Some mornings I get confused again by all of the titles and chains of command- so I pull out one of Sundance’s nifty charts- it’s just awesome. It also shows a couple of other names that haven’t been followed up- Trisha Anderson? Did someone get her to flip? Or did she disappear?
    https://theconservativetreehouse.files.wordpress.com/2018/06/mye-flowchart-leadership-tashina.jpg

    • Sherri Young says:

      Tashina Gauhar was over at DOJ.
      FBI Attorney 1 was (is) Sally Moyer. She is also “Unit Supervisor” in the Comey report. The reason her name does not appear in either report is that she is GS-15, not SES.
      I am pretty sure the same applies to the redactions of Joe Pientka’s name everywhere you look.

  72. Sentient says:

    What if the president quietly issued a full and unconditional pardon of any/all offense committed by Assange? Could he engineer the UK releasing him and his being whisked away to safety (wherever that might be) before Pompeo and Haspel could put a stop to Assange’s release?

    • Bogeyfree says:

      He better hurry as by many reports, his health is failing.
      I truly hope Assange has a trip wire that will expose the truth even if he is not with us anymore.
      Let’s be honest, here are some very simple and obvious things that any junior investigator would have done by now IMO:
      1) Depose Assange
      2) Depose Ratner
      3) Depose Butowsky
      4) Depose Brazile
      5) Trace PapD’s serial numbers
      6) Declassify if Mifsud was always a western agent
      7) Depose Steele
      8) Declassify and audit all 2015, 2016 and 2017 texts, emails and phone calls by key alleged perpetrators.
      Unless they are trying to round up the entire ring at one time or get to the true ring leaders themselves, this really doesn’t seem that hard to prove that this whole thing was a fraud, a frame job and a setup from Day 1.

      • Carrie says:

        Yes to all of this! And yes, please let there be trip wire. Please let the truth get out there. the fact that Assange is under solitary confinement is tough to hear. Either it’s done for his own protection (Epstein scenario), or because they want to kill him off. The UK has utterly pathetic sentencing and there are convicted murderers who get treated better than Assange.

        • Bogeyfree says:

          If they were protecting him he wouldn’t be in such poor health and losing his mental faculties as some reports have claimed.
          IMO Barr could change this with one call.

      • WhiteBoard says:

        if you dont trace the coup plotters to the head- it will rise again. Hillary is not the brains. Obama is not the brains. McCabe is not the brains.
        THEM not arrested now GIVE ME HOPE that Barr and Trump are actually going for the FULL KILL and not just trophys..
        We dont need to depose Assange – we have Seth’s emergency room stay.

      Assange is being slowly arkancided. On display for the world to see. Don’t ever go against the machine.

  73. hokkoda says:

    The move to Boeing is a soft landing. That’s how this game works. If you get “caught”, you get a sweet paying job at a major government contractor. Their job is to make Gauhar a millionaire. They need Guahar out of the government so they can say “oh, no longer works here, nothing to see!”
    Bet on your cynical side.

    • Linda K. says:

      She may have made her own decision to move on, seeing the coming of the indictments. Hard to get a new job when you are under indictment. These people are not puppets.

      • hokkoda says:

        Probably a bit of both. It’s how the game is played. Somebody in the hiring chain at Boeing called her boss at DOJ. DOJ is glad to have one less employee to explain. Boeing gets an insider with “relationships” they need for the 737 debacle, and she keeps all her security clearances.
        Another happy landing in the Government Party.
        In a few years, when the dust settles, and her bank account is fully loaded, she’ll jump back to DOJ. That’s what Comey did after earning millions at Lock-Mar.

  74. mark says:

    So according to pelosi, President Trump can be impeached for asking the President of a foreign country (Ukraine) for help in uncovering corruption between the United States and Ukraine. But it’s perfectly okay for Special Counsel Mueller ( who was appointed but not elected by by anyone) to use 19 lawyers, 40 FBI agents, 17 intelligence agencies, 2800 subpoenas, 500 search and seizure warrants, 230 orders for communication records, 50 orders for Penn Registers, interviewed 500 witnesses and ASKED 13 FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS PURSUANT TO THE MUTUAL FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS ASSISTANCE TREATYS, to help for the same thing, uncover corruption between the United States and another Country.

    • … and according to the entire Swamp, it was perfectly okay for the VPOTUS to extort the Ukranians (and to say of the POTUS, “call him”), and to do so … not for any legitimate purpose … for obstruction of justice against his son and himself.
      Unfortunately for them, the United States is not the only country whose people are now determined to deprive their local alligators of a place to live: the Ukranians are doing it, too. And, since so much American wrongdoing has taken place there, by so very many people in Congress today … you’re damned right “they’re scared shitless.”

      • northerncanuck says:

        If I may put this forth….
        I’m pretty sure, but not certain, that Ukraine’s justice system is different than the US’, so “interesting things” might come out much sooner and in a different fashion than we’d think. Therefore, the hoops they would have to jump through to get issues and perpetrators to court could well be different?
        Might hear “interesting things” sooner rather than later.

  75. MLK says:

    “The Scale and Scope . . . ”
    Yes. This was to be expected. If we start at the fictitious high water mark of the 1970s (see “Prince of the City”), the U.S, Department of Justice was presented as fearlessly incorrupt at a time when other agencies’, federal (e.g. CIA) and local (NYC Police) reputations were in tatters. It’s easy to forget all of the warning signs, some rather prominent, like Ruby Ridge and Waco, that presaged the depths that DOJ/FBI has fallen.
    I started this comment with ‘this is to be expected’ because while FBI/DOJ were at the center in this biggest political scandal in our history, it’s worth remembering that FBI/DOJ fear and loathing of Trump was hardly unique or extreme.
    The booing and chants of “lock him up” at the Nationals’ home World Series Game the other day was a stark (intentional, by the POTUS) reminder nothing has changed in this respect.
    FBI/DOJ has had decades — since the end of the Cold War is a good, if imperfect, demarcation point — in which establishment factions made peace with each other, dividing up the spoils. Surviving the scandals of the 90s (again, e.g. Ruby Ridge; Waco) made them a template for what was to come re candidate/President-Elect/President Trump.
    Thankfully, at least so far, cooler heads have prevailed. I won’t detail what I mean because it’s too frightening to contemplate. Suffice it to say that would be evidenced by devolution to factional violence and social disorder.
    This President — any president, cannot both lead the sovereign and be at war with it. While we’d like to imagine that’s simply Drain the Swamp, or Clean[ing] out the Augean Stable, these powerful factions, as we’ve seen, have been willing and able to make serious threats as a matter of self-protection.
    It isn’t that Tashina Guahar, or any of these characters, isn’t entirely expendable. It’s that Barr/Durham/Horowitz have to come up with a Resolve. The POTUS, in his inimitable truth-telling style, captured it when he said that FBI/DOJ’s reputation “was in tatters.” Whatever is about to come from Barr/Durham/Horowitz is indisputably intended to begin the long road back under the totality of the circumstances.
    The latter clause of that last sentence anything but mere dicta. Which explains why, though I reserve judgement on what is coming, there’s much more at stake than a reckoning for bit players.
    As I alluded above, as head of the sovereign, it was essential for the POTUS to publicly recuse, so to speak, from Barr/Durham/Horowitz. Yet he has made it clear in no uncertain terms, at least as far as I’m concerned, that he will reclaim and exercise his declassification authority at his discretion, depending on what Barr AND the Democrats do.
    The current impeachment “inquiry” is entirely connected to Barr/Durham/Horowitz. That’s why Pelosi relocated it to the constitutionally suspect (and thus challengeable) Schiff/Intelligence. I’m not saying it will be, there are myriad reasons it might, but impeachment can be made to go by-bye in the blink of an eye by Pelosi. Call me crazy, this context explains poor Katie Hill. She was a roadkill warning to House Democrats, particularly the newbies hankering for impeachment, that this is now above their pay grade.
    Pelosi has continued to publicly insist that the House did not vote to formally open an impeachment inquiry. Right after this past week’s vote she gave a Bloomberg interview in which she barely talked about impeachment. She criticized Medicare For All as popular in her district but not in many other districts. That, in my view, was her warning about the existential risk to the Democrats in the House of impeaching Trump.
    I continue to believe that the LESS likely outcome is the House voting Articles of Impeachment. I think the two Democrats voting against was intended to give Pelosi running room. One resolve being that the House fails to pass articles because a sufficient number of Democrats — those in Trump districts, saving them from wipeout next November.

  76. mylabs5 says:

    Ready through all this something came to mind about strategy of the conspirators. Any one who has ever been involved in a lawsuit knows the term “paper them to death”. In other words, issue so many documents, demand letters, requests, subpoenas, etc, that the other side has to waste so much in resources and time that it becomes almost impossible cover every response. MIssing one particular request can lose a case. And as we saw in the Flynn case, his original attorneys missed a lot. ERGO comes the settlement stage/plea bargain. Thank God for Sidney.
    It’s a Cloward-Piven move….overwhelm the system. Overwhelm the ultimate decision makers – the American public. I see it across all the IC involved in this.

    Trish went to Boeing. Isn’t that Comey’s old haunt? Also part of the military-industrial complex.

      No, In August 2005, Comey left the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and became a senior vice president of Lockheed Martin as general counsel while based in Bethesda, Maryland until 2010.
      But it is worth reading and listening to the Whistleblower Chronicles and Tapes.

  78. islandpalmtrees says:

    Is Boeing one of the contractors authorized to spy, by the FBI using the NSA Database?
    “Rumor in the DC grapevine is that a few weeks ago Tashina Guahar was quietly removed from her position as lawyer for the DOJ National Security Division (in charge of FISA applications). This removal happened immediately after IG Michael Horowitz submitted his first draft report to Attorney General Bill Barr for classification review. Ms. Gauhar now reportedly works for Boeing.”

    • Sherri Young says:

      I would be willing to guess that Tashina Guahar herself might be on the distribution list to review the new IG report.
      Don’t know. Just making an assumption.

  79. Lawyer Not says:

    That’s exactly what Boeing needs… more ethically challenged leadership & legal advice. If a Boeing jet falls out of the sky because this corrupt lawyer overruled an engineering decision, can the families of the crash victims sue the DOJ for letting her off the hook?

    I wonder if Joey Pientka has been quietly removed from the FBI?

  81. Zy says:

    There are so many tentacles ? to this coup, for recent example, the NSC co-conspirators. Another thing to look for is if no one in this vast seditious conspiracy flips or there is no sign of pressuring someone to flip. I think that would be rare without a government coverup.

    • Zippy says:

      “There are so many tentacles to this coup”
      Since, according to my reasoned estimate, 80% of government at all levels should be considered to represent the Deep State / Swamp, that’s exactly what one should expect.

    • Carrie says:

      The sheer number of the players is astounding really. The chart I posted above has 9 alone. And it still missing quite a few (Kortan, Rosenstein, Yates, etc) and doesn’t include the players in the other arms (Halper, Mifsud, Turk) or insiders (like McMasters, Carter Page?) the Fusion GPS gang (Simpson, Veleskitny) or big wigs like Obama, Hillary, Clapper, Brennan (plus Senators like Burr and Warner, Feinstein and helpers like James Wolfe, Dan Jones) or even the entire Lawfare gang (Bromowich, et al). We are looking at easily over 50 to 60 people, possibly 100! How can Barr think that he can let this slide? It is a genuine putsch! And it’s impossible to think that not one has flipped? If they actually try, there has to be several flippers!

  84. Superman says:

    Great insight Sundance. While reading I can’t help but think…yup you have confirmed what we all know was a ruse. Will anything be done about it?
    We will wait and see. Trump is very confident of late…I believe they are timing the release of the damning information for political gain. The Democrats are trying to damage Trump as much as possible because they know what it coming…and they keep using the same deep state set-ups that Barr is investigating to try and compromise Trump.
    You have to admit their gall is set to 11.

  85. B Woodward says:

    Sessions was an idiot to listen to the corrupt, conniving, duplicitous Obama holdovers. In his recusal (which was when he took office), he cited a law that was not even relevant. 28 CFR 45.2 applies to criminal investigations, not counterintelligence investigations. Sessions is an attorney who wanted to be the attorney general and he couldn’t even discern what the law was and WTF was going down. He should have unrecused himself when he found out that he was duped and that Rosenstein violated DOJ regs and was trying to take down the President. But no. Sessions doubled down and recused himself from the Uranium One investigation. Sessions should have fallen on his sword or resigned rather than let Rosestein run roughshod over the DOJ. When you look at it, Sessions’ recusal cost us the House in 2018, which lead to Pelosi’s impeachment scam.

    Updated Oct 28, 2017 at 2:01pm
    “Dana Boente was also “serving as acting assistant attorney general of the National Security Division and will remain in that post until John C. Demers, an attorney for Boeing who worked at the Justice Department under President George W. Bush, is confirmed,” reported The Post.”
    http://heavy.com/news/2017/10/why-did-dana-boente-resign-flynn/

  87. Zippy says:

    “Either Tashing Guahar has cooperated with the Horowitz, Durham and Barr probes and left the DOJ prior to the IG report on FISA abuse (and her role therein) being made public, as part of an internal dynamic; -OR- the IG discoveries about direct and affiliated activity that surrounded Ms. Gauhar led to her pre-report exit as a Main Justice coverup.”
    Alex, I’ll go for “B,” having done so well in the “Spygate perps indicted so far in the over 1000 days of the ‘Trump’ administration” with my answer, “What is NONE.”

  88. BobinNJ says:

    The posting concludes with this: “Instead, this is a matrix of broad interests positioned only to benefit and sustain the status quo of the administrative state; and protect the larger DC community from the Trump disruption.” This seems to be only partially true and is, in fact, unintentionally misleading. The objective of these individuals was to concentrate and expand political power of a particular kind, hence their loyalty to Obama despite the damage he caused America. (Brennan and Comey are admitted past communists and Obama an Alinskyite, as is Hillary Clinton.) Their past and ongoing actions show they do not hesitate to damage American institutions to obtain political advantage; cumulatively, that damage is what makes their ultimate objective of permanent power achievable. Had Clinton won, that corrupt concentration of power would have increased exponentially with an accelerated Gramscian cleansing of governmental institutions. Those who had taken the big, early risks would be retained and rewarded as single-leader Clintonian power entrenched itself in Washington. Until the inevitable purges of dictatorial solidification and succession. (Elected Republicans, how would you fare?)
    This, I believe, truly explains the Democrat insanity. After a century, they were at the hinge point of permanent Marxist power over the United States, packaged as socialism. (Clinton would ruthlessly finalize the transition into a totalitarian hyper-surveillance state in ways the useful idiots cannot even begin to imagine.) The Gramscian power entity created under Obama—a critical mass of clandestinely cooperating individuals in positions of legitimate authority—has been fractured and partially disbanded by resignations, demotions, and firings. Every action now taken by the Democrat party leadership is to protect and preserve its embedded subversive infrastructure, regardless of the collateral damage. However, this is not about protecting individuals—Clapper,Brennan, Comey–from prosecution. Heroes of the revolution can always be rehabilitated and rewarded after control is taken. Nor is this moment solely about preserving its remaining network of assets in the executive branch until the next Democrat president. Instead, they seek to complete the takeover now, to forever deny America another fair election, while the current opportunity still exists. After all, they and their dictatorial ways have been revealed to the public (and only because of Trump victory and defiance.) Their revolutionary ideology will not allow them to give up this opportunity. They desperately need to create new power and new forms of power now, at this instant, by whatever means necessary. And that should be truly frightening to all.

    Uber has hired its very first chief compliance and ethics officer Scott Schools, formerly of the US Department of Justice (DOJ).
    Schools will report to Uber’s chief legal officer Tony West, who is also an alumnus of the Department of Justice.

  91. The present actions of the House of Representatives in fact constitute a “Bill of Attainder,” which is expressly prohibited at both the Federal and the State level by our Constitution. The Supreme Court decided that upon a three-pronged test: that it “1) specifically identified the people to be punished; 2) imposed punishment; and 3) did so without benefit of judicial trial.
    The House has abandoned all pretenses of justice, even as it persuaded a judge to say (erroneously) that theirs was “a judicial proceeding.” (The Constitution does not grant that role to the Congress …) They specifically seek to deny the accused the protections of the Fifth and Sixth Amendments, in particular, in their kangaroo court. Their proceedings are certainly not a “judicial trial.” So, what they actually have – and are attempting to use as proof of “high crimes and misdemeanors” – is a very historically-familiar thing that is Unconstitutional: a Bill of Attainder, writ by Adam Schiff in a secret “star chamber.”

    • P.S. The WikiPedia article on “Star Chamber” also contains this interesting sentence:

      Due to the constitutional separation of powers and the ceasing of the Star Chamber, the main powers of select committees are to enhance the public debate. Politicians are deemed to no longer wield powers in the criminal law, which belongs to the courts.[a]

      So, if you want to know what the House of Representatives is up to right now, from a historical perspective, just read that article. What’s happening in America today is not exactly new … it’s just Unconstitutional.

    I wonder if there is a little old man behind a curtain pulling a bunch of levers and manipulating the Wizard of Government. I thought it might be someone like Strobe Talbott. Here is a Strobe Talbott quote
    “In the next century, nations as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority. National sovereignty wasn’t such a great idea after all.”
    But i just dont see one person being able to coordinate such [email protected]^&ery. I am starting to think that the: Deep State, Uni-party, Apparatchik, Military Industrial… yada yada is a waste product of any government structure. That we can never do away with it totally, but that we can manage it by significantly reducing the size of Government. I would include in this the buyers and the sellers of government goods and services which would be the Lobbyist and NGO/Think Tanks.
    We might also move the IC into the military as much as possible, and give the IGs more bite.
    What I believe I see as I watch and live this government debacle is an organism that is self healing and self preserving to the detriment of the very people it was created to help. So we get people like Rosenstein that no one knows if he is white hat or black hat. I don’t think he knows if he is white hat or black hat but he carries out his job as he understands it. Problem is that his job description does not put the citizens/voters first.
    Then you have people like John Brennan who are just criminals

  97. Concernedcitizen says:

    Gauhar’s “quiet” removal and her subsequent hiring by Boeing is an indication that she is cooperating. Why? It seems she is being given the respect of a star witness. Was she escorted out of the building by security carrying a box of personal effects? Apparently not. And
    before being hired by Boeing, it is likely that she had to assure them that no criminal charges were expected. Conclusion: she probably has an immunity deal.

  98. Phil aka Felipe says:

    “Either Tashing Guahar has cooperated with the Horowitz, Durham and Barr probes and left the DOJ prior to the IG report on FISA abuse (and her role therein) being made public, as part of an internal dynamic; -OR- the IG discoveries about direct and affiliated activity that surrounded Ms. Gauhar led to her pre-report exit as a Main Justice coverup.
    Hope for the former; but keep an eye open for the latter.”
    Thanks to Sidney Powell’s representation of Gen. Flynn, we shall soon find out whether it is the former or latter.
    IMO, if it’s the former, AG Barr will let the corrupt DOJ persecutors of Gen. Flynn continue to be exposed by waiting to see what Judge Sullivan decides after hearing Sidney’s sur-surreply and let the chips fall where they may.
    OTH, if it is latter and the “activity that surrounded Ms. Gauhar led to her pre-report exit as a Main Justice coverup”, then AG Barr will order the withdrawal of the charges against Gen. Flynn. If he is covering up for Main Justice, he cannot afford to have all the players deposed in a trial which is exactly what will happen if Sidney does not get what she is after, i.e. complete exoneration of Gen. Flynn.

    So it appears the “what’s up” question has to do in part with the nature of her exit.
    And remembering the incestuous nature of rotation back and forth between govt and large corp jobs (Barr did it, Comey did it), then exactly WHO picked up an attorney with a resume as a FISA attorney with few valuable transferable skills in the corp world becomes an interesting question. Somebody made a call to somebody to have this woman picked up and paid.
    The senior exec of govt relations at Boeing is a Clinton loyalist. Timothy Keating
    To me this smells like the Dem team picked up and are protecting one of their own, more than it does like Barr arranging to take her out of reach. Barr is probably clean in this, and probably deserves kudos for this swamp cleanup.

    The underpinning to the (now acknowledged) “deep state” is the 1,000’s of “professional” Federal Employees who are the action officers for all decisions. Approximately 2/3 to 3/4 of them were hired during the Clinton and Obama administrations and they cannot be removed nor just reassigned if the Federal Government has even a hope of functioning. They can be commanded to go rogue by the Democrat Party puppet masters as needed and be assured of work outside the government after they are fired or resign. Plus, they know the limits to which they can act to stay out of legal peril.
    The remedies are painful and/or long term:
    – remove them as they are exposed and examine closely if they can be legally damaged.
    – 4 more years of hiring under a re-elected President Trump.
    – 8 more years of another President Trump clone (replaces about 50% of the Clinton-Obama hires).
    – Win back the legislature in 2020 with real Republicans (a long shot), to improve quality of appointees and depth of Executive Branch control by the President.
    – Begin closing down “redundant” Federal agencies and furlough the Obama-Clinton hires.

  108. Sherri Young says:

    This is going to be long, but please hang with me.
    I commented earlier this morning about an allusion to a WaPo opinion piece in the Carter Page FISA. The piece is available on the Wayback Machine if you don’t have a subscription to the Bezos yellow journalism bird cage liner. On first pass, I missed the importance and need to pull in more info.
    This article sets the table for the Trump/Russia collusion story.
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/global-opinions/trump-campaign-guts-gops-anti-russia-stance-on-ukraine/2016/07/18/98adb3b0-4cf3-11e6-a7d8-13d06b37f256_story.html
    In that opinion piece, Josh Rogin writes about Diana Denman, a Ted Cruz Texas delegate to the 2016 RNC convention in Cleveland. She advocated for a change in the GOP’s platform that hardened the platform position on Russia/Ukraine to one of heavier sanctions against Russia and for providing lethal aid (weapons) to Ukraine. JD Gordon of the Trump campaign got that hard line reference to lethal aid softened to “appropriate assistance”.
    The passages in the FISA application can be seen in the screenshots in this blog post.
    https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2018/07/first-thoughts-on-the-carter-page-fisa-application.php
    Ms. Denman and the change in the platform plank again show up in the Mueller report on pp. 123-127 (pdf pp. 131-135).
    Byron York interviewed Ms. Denman’s (and Maria Butina’s) attorney, Robert Driscoll.
    https://ricochet.com/podcast/byron-york-show/maria-butina-and-the-russia-hysteria/
    Ms. Denman was interview by the FBI, the Mueller team, the SSCI, and the HPSCI. In that podcast that aired on May 8th of this year, he relates that Adam Schiff, along with his sidekick Eric Swalwell, seemed to already have a theory about Ms. Denman’s experience with the Russia/Ukraine platform plank. To me, it sounded like Schiff was trying to drive the same narrative in her interview that he is seeking today.
    The other statement Driscoll made that sticks out is that Ms. Denman communicated with some policy types in Washington DC before she wrote her plank amendment. Who were those people?
    For that matter, who is Diana Denman? She has been active in GOP politics for decades. We already know she is hawkish. Is she this Diana Denman? If so, she is a severe Never-Trumper. As such, her roll might not have been so innocently benign.

          • Sherri Young says:

            So true, but here’s the thing: Ms. Denman’s advisors apparently helped her decide to offer and advocate for that specific plank to virtually lock in weapons for Ukraine.
            The Dimms, Never-Trumpers, and Deep State all seemed to be locked onto their Russia/Russia/Russia mantra. They got what they wanted on Russia. They did not get what they wanted on Ukraine, but that did not cause loud complaints. Now that Ukraine has popped up, there is huge outrage.
            Why?
            Could it be that they really do not care about Biden except in the context of not wanting attention turned to their piggybank Ukraine and our corrupt people who have been soaking money out of there? Biden is nonviable against Donald J. Trump. This is about saving their own skins.

      Amen. The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, alone, names FISA judges. Doesn’t require Congressional approval.
      So, why has Chief Justice John Roberts, allegedly a Conservative, named 4 of 5 FISA judges who are Clinton & Obama appointees?
      It was John Roberts who named Judge Rudolph Contreras.
      Rudolph Contreras is, infamously, the FISA Judge who’s friends with Peter Strzok. The one Stzrok & Lisa Page texted about setting up a secret meeting with, just as Strzok was prepping to interview Gen Michael Flynn.
      Judge Rudolph Contreras then ended up as the Judge on the Gen Michael Flynn case. It’s hard to imagine the Chief Justice would not be following a case of Gen Michael Flynn’s magnitude and not be aware his appointee Rudolph Contreras was on the case. Especially considering Contreras would have been on his radar, as many people were asking about the FISC and which Judges had approved which surveilance warrants against the Trump team?
      After taking Flynn’s guilty plea, Judge Rudolph Contreras was then recused from the case. Only one of two people could have recused him. The top FISA Judge Rosemary Collyer, or….Chief Justice John Roberts.
      Has Roberts been naming Clinton/Obama FISA Judges because he’s been compromised by the Clinton/Obama machine? By their Praetorian Guard, aka the the CIA & FBI?
      Did Roberts grow a conscious and recuse Contreras? Were people starting to figure it out, so his hand was forced? Did Judge Collyer recuse Contreras and blow Roberts out of the water?
      These are questions few are asking, that I would love to know more about.

    himself, he should have told Jeff Sessions: I am not the guy who can do this
    because I was involved in that Russia
    uranium investigation that enriched
    Hillary Clinton’s foundation $145 million; I can’t do this.
    But since he is not ethical, he is not
    moral, and he doesn’t mind keeping the
    limitations running while they are
    looking elsewhere rather than at him
    and Mueller who is also the FBI Director involved in that Russia investigation where Russia was trying to get our
    uranium, neither one of them should
    have been able to accept.
    Rosenstein has got to go, and his assistant who so often keeps the good
    people who supported President Trump
    in the dark, Tash Gauhar, she needs to
    go. She needs to go, and Rosenstein

  115. trapper says:

    The McCabe memo is a window into the fundamental political/philosophical disconnect that underlies everything that is wrong at DOJ, FBI, State Department, the IC, and probably every other agency of federal government. The ultimate product of that disconnect was on display in the recent “Thank God for the Deep State” proclamations by some of the afflicted.
    The underlying affliction is a disconnect between the philosophical underpinnings of a representational democracy in which a nation’s government answers to its citizens, and an operational belief in which employees of that government see themselves as “citizen of the world” answerable only to a “higher calling,” independent of and unaccountable to both citizens and officials elected by citizens. This affliction’s ultimate manifestation was the creation of the CFPB, a perfect storm of Deep State unaccountability and Orwellian doublespeak where, under the guise of citizen “protection,” an agency was created with no accountability to elected officials or citizens, a Frankenstein monster ready to be activated against the very citizens it was supposed to protect. This affliction is fatal to representational self government and must be rooted out and destroyed.
    Only a person who views himself as answering only to a higher calling could take it upon himself to open a criminal investigation of an elected sitting president, his boss, over policy differences (the elected president determines what the relationship will be between the US and Russia), for firing the head of the FBI (who answers to and serves at the pleasure of the elected president) and for expecting the head of the FBI to profess loyalty to an elected president.
    The elected president reportedly told the new AG (Sessions) “you were supposed to protect me.” Indeed. This is precisely the opposite of an “offense.” The duty of every Attorney General is to protect an elected president against a coup d’etat orchestrated by unelected bureaucrats who view themselves as unaccountable to either the citizens or the officials they elect. In this, Sessions utterly failed. It remains to be seen how well Mr. Barr will perform this duty. A good start would be declassifying and making public unredacted versions of everything on Sundance’s list.

  118. Judiciary says:

    From a May article in The Federalist by Willis L. Krumholtz: “Tashina Gauhar is a Department of Justice attorney who was deeply involved in applications to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance (FISA) Court, which were used to spy on the Trump campaign using the dossiers. Gauhar was also one of the few people to see or be notified of the existence of missing Hillary Clinton emails found on Anthony Weiner’s computer. Weiner was being investigated for pedophilia and was married to top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
    Gauhar and Andrew McCabe sat on those emails, and a cursory investigation—led by anti-Trump FBI agent Strzok—was only conducted when FBI field agents in New York threatened to go public. Gauhar later played a role in recommending former attorney general Jeff Sessions’ recusal from overseeing Mueller’s probe.”
    Supposedly, photos of Gauhar have been scrubbed from the internet. Its also said that she would deliberately fail to notify Jeff Sessions of meeting times so he would be late and unprepared, yet no one else had any problems with timely meeting notifications.

  119. Daniel says:

    When information like this Tashina Guahar exiting, the source of the rumor should indicate which direction to look: ‘either’/’or’
    Am I the only one wondering why Sundance isn’t transparent or specific about the source of this rumor? It’s not like him to hold back unless he is protecting a source and not wanting to come out with the news. It kind of feels like we are being steered more than informed.

        Quite the contrary to what? Search the web. All references to this name and the word rumor originate HERE. Sundance always cites source articles of there are any in public.
        And since no definitive conclusion is being reached, the article’s new information can be summed up like this: “There is a rumor. If true or could mean this or that.”
        Objectively speaking, that’s not really news. It’s speculation based on unfounded rumor. GOSSIP.
