IG Michael Horowitz Will Testify About FISA Report to Senate on December 11th…

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham has announced that Inspector General Michael Horowitz will testify About the 500+ page FISA report on Wednesday December 11th, 2019.

WASHINGTONChairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today announced that Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz will testify before the Committee on Wednesday, December 11, 2019.

The Inspector General will discuss the findings of his investigation into DOJ and FBI’s conduct during the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant process as it relates to the 2016 presidential election. (link)

Considering the end of the principal review phase on Friday November 22nd; and considering the Thanksgiving holiday of November 28th; this likely puts the publication date for the report on/around Monday December 2nd, with testimony the following week.

It is possible the FISA report release, and the 12/11 Horowitz senate testimony will come at the same time the House of Representatives moves the impeachment inquiry into the House Judiciary Committee.  According to the Pelosi calendar the last day for the House of Representative is Thursday December 12th.

      We can only hope. Serious push back is needed, as in yesterday. With the new push for grand jury testimony, the new line being, “Did Trump lie to Mueller?”, another round of “investigations” will ensue from nothing more than a speculative question. Lather, rinse, repeat. The left has spent years getting what it wants by folding, spindling, and mutilating the Constitution. Despite their efforts, some of it is still intact. It’s beginning to look like their number one project for the next year is finishing the job.

      I keep reading opinions that part of the impeachment frenzy is to create a political narrative counter to the imminent reports from the IG and the DOJ. I’ve nodded along with this myself for a while, but I’ve started to wonder, how exactly does impeachment present a credible alternative to charges that all the investigations leading up to the impeachment were politically motivated? How does impeachment offer the Nation justice when fabrication, entrapment, and FISA violations were among the tactics used to execute an investigation based on concerns about “national security”?

      I’m not being rhetorical. Aside from the 30% to 40% who will devour whatever the democrats do and say just to feed their hatred for everything Trump, what exactly does impeaching the president offer as political strategy in the battle for hearts and minds?

      Does the impeachment, ipso facto, shut down any investigations into 2016?

      What am I missing? How do the democrats think this will emasculate Trump, once and for all?

        I believe it’s actually one more step beyond that… impeachment is meant to establish the narrative firmly in the minds of the public so that when the Horowitz / Durham / Barr reports do hit the fan, as they’ve all known for quite some time that they will, they can then all say that this is just another diversionary attempt by the president to change the subject. Nothing to see here. Impeach!

          That’s the way I’ve taken the theory too. But if the AG and his lead investigator release a report citing evidence that crimes were committed by the FBI and Intelligence in pursuit of indictment and impeachment, how does dismissing the claims and/or charges work? Just because the House impeached the president? I don’t get how Pelosi can say, “Ignore the claims made by the president’s AG. It’s all illegitimate because we impeached Trump. We proved he’s corrupt.” Testimony and documentation of events before, and possibly during, Mueller’s investigation will be presented, and if Barr brings indictments, everything the democrats have built their house on crumbles. Witnesses won’t be able to answer questions by referring to Pelosi’s finalized impeachment.

          Even rock-rib republicans had to admit something fishy was going on in Nixon’s White House after the hearings began. I don’t see how Pelosi holding up a document and saying, Mission Accomplished” is going to make the public believe everything the DOJ says is a lie, if indictments come down.

          If the democrats have a plan, I don’t think the backstop is “Well, both sides do it.”, which is their typical final defense.

          Using the impeachment to create doubt and confusion isn’t adding up for me anymore, not if criminal charges are made. If Barr and Horowitz release namby-pamby reports with recommendations for institutional changes, then the impeachment might bear fruit for Madam Poli-Grip. Otherwise…

    I know that many CTHers go back and forth on supporting Lindsey Graham. I hope and I feel like he has seen the light. I happen to be a supporter, but about 2 weeks ago he announced that he would not chair Senate judiciary in 2021. He will be turning this committee back to Chuck Grassley.

    I am fairly confident that there will be hearings about FISA abuse issues right up to, if not into the year 2021 and I feel this is too important to let Lindsey start off as the chairman only to resign after a year.

      I agree with your comment on Graham’s timing. It still puzzles me that he seemed eager to take the reins of SJC only to announce he’s giving it up. Many people have complained he hasn’t seized the initiative to hold hearings that counter the House Democrats and their illusory impeachment drive. Whatever has impeded his interest in investigating Democrat fraud and their promulgating unconstitutional rules in the House must be devastatingly bad for Graham, otherwise he wouldn’t have relinquished his opportunity to build reputation as a Senator to be reckoned with.

          No doubt McCain had been involved. IIRC he was also implicated in Ukraine corruption. So I see that it’s possible looking into the current corrupt Congressional Democrats’ involvement in Ukraine might uncover activity of McCain.

          Even worse, was Graham himself mixed up in McCain’s Ukraine adventures? That could be a still bigger reason for Graham to beg off committee chairman responsibility.

            Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) is planning to take back the gavel of the influential Judiciary Committee if Republicans keep control of the Senate in the 2020 elections.
            Grassley chaired the Judiciary Committee from 2015 to 2019 but handed over the top spot to Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) in January so that he could take over the Senate Finance Committee.

            Under Senate GOP rules, Grassley will hit his term limit for the Finance panel at the end of next year. He has informed Graham that he intends to use his seniority to become chairman of the Judiciary Committee starting in January 2021.

            “He has, I think, two more years,” Graham told The Hill on Thursday. “I’d honor any request that he wants to make.”

            Grassley, who can serve an additional two years as Judiciary Committee chairman according to Senate Republican Conference rules, separately told Bloomberg that he wants to chair the Judiciary Committee again… “I have two years and that would be a natural thing to do,” Grassley said, referring to a move back to the Judiciary Committee chairmanship.

          Oh you mean actions intended to impede the President’s effectiveness? Sure enough most of us saw AG Sessions as an impediment, that staying in the Senate would have been better by quite a margin. Graham’s motivations are somewhat more divided, as noted in comments above he’s probably acting in a self-protective mode. I think he’s likely to be mixed up in Ukrainian corruption like so many other elected officials and doesn’t want that to come out.

      I don’t go back and forth. I consistently call him out for his lack of action. He’s head of the judiciary committee. Do you know how powerful it is? Wait until you see the dems get it. Then you’ll see real power. But Lindsey Graham just makes excuses and pretends he’s helpless. He goes on tv and says things like “someone should look into that”. Hello! YOU’RE THE SOMEONE!!!! He’s doing a Ryan. Remember when the Paul Ryan house was soooooo helpless all while the establishment pretended Russia into a real Mueller investigation? Look at the house now! Look how powerful the committees are! Look what they can do! And the Senate versions of the same committees are far more powerful. Lindsey Graham could have stopped Mueller and he could have stopped Schiffty. He could have called Mueller. He could have called anyone who you could possibly think of, provided they’re alive. He still can! He’s a fraud and he dances when McConnell tells him too. When McConnell says stand down he stands down. He’s a weak and pathetic man, a corrupt man, an owned man. A man of the status quo.

Gonna be a joke on the issue of criminality. Remember, despite Peter Strzok’s clear bias and highly sketchy and irregular behavior, Horowitz couldn’t even render an opinion that Strzok was obviously biased. It’s gonna be one big tepid yawn.

      There was a short-lived leak several weeks ago that Barr had asked Horowitz to go back and rewrite parts of the report to specify the particular laws which were broken in a way that the American People could understand it clearly. I cannot find the source now, but I distinctly remember reading this. The fact that it dried up almost instantly gave me the sense that it was real, and an indication that the “executive summary” might shed some light on the specific criminal violations Durham is looking into. i.e. what actually “triggered” the change from “administrative review” to “criminal probe”?

        That is my recollection also. I wondered why horowitz would NOT initially cite the relevant crimininal laws and internal rules/regulations. Was horowitz hiding the MANY criminal statutes which apply to all this concerted coup conspiracy? Leaking, lying to the court, conspiring to overthrow the government, wire fraud, RICO, deprivation of civil rights under color of authority, lying to congress, lying to the president, lying to the FBI/DOJ, foreign election activity, fake evidence ……

        The BASICS were missing from the draft report?: BASICS include: “Here’s the relevant criminal statutes, and the regulations. Here’s what was done, measured against the statutes, by whom, when. Recommendations for prosecution of specific statute crimes, if criteria met. That is the most critical part of the report – it is why the investigation was done. So why would the report draft need to be sent back to identify the statutes violated? Horowitz must certainly undesstand his job, so why would any of the possibly applicable statutes be missing?

        Recommendations for discipline if rules/procedures violated, recommendations for changes in FISA and procedures, and hiring and ongoing review are less important when investigating a coup against the criminal laws.

        This was a very strange rumor.

    Which means the pre-report “leak window” opens up later this week and just prior to Thanksgiving.

    The two sets of leaks that I would be most concerned about are:
    – leaks on the Barr/DOJ side tempering expectations, lots of vague talk about rules and procedures and training, that sort of thing. You know, the old “mistakes were made”. stuff.
    – leaks from Team Coup d’Etat trying to raise expectations to the point where people get over-excited for serious criminal referrals that wind up not panning out. That would make the report a bust…set people up then cut them off at the knees.
    – leaks from Congress where Team Coup seems excessively relieved and Team Trump seems exasperated or frustrated. Thus far, the timing of impeachment – the Ukraine thing blew up almost precisely when the IG sent his draft to Barr – says that the Democrats are very worried about this report.

    The most promising aspect of this whole investigation is the nearly complete radio-silence that Horowitz, Durham and Barr have been able to maintain. And, the comparative radio-silence from Team Coup d’Etat other than the occasional squawks from Brennan. (such as that cryptic tweet from Witte to Page last week) Together, these point to Seriously Bad News for the Government Party.

    So, if you’re a leak-reader and like to sort of read the tea leaves and see if you’re right, watch the next 8-9 days and ask yourself: who is leaking, who are they leaking to, and what message are they trying to convey?

    I still give it 3:1 odds against any significant criminal referrals. “Lack of candor” that sort of thing at most. The more serious stuff, like fraud, sedition, falsifying/planting evidence, conspiracy to commit X, etc. are low probability due to the nature of how the bureaucracy works. Team Coup knows how to do things which are illegal, but paper it up in a way to make it look like bureaucratic error. The question is whether Horowitz and eventually Durham see through it and take appropriate action.

They were collaborating, and this will be made plainly clear. The question is whether Horowitz and Durham consider that a criminal conspiracy or just a bunch of coincidences and “lack of training / inadequate procedures”.

        My take on the expansion of Durham’s timeline was that he had already achieved the initial objective, that of disproving the predicate, and was then moving forward to add continuing conspiracy. I am, admittedly, not one who does much chess playing, but the only reason I could think of for expanding the parameters was that the original objective was met and you still have time or resources and had identified another objective.

          I believe this to be the case as well. He very quickly determined that the investigation was launched on bogus predication. So the next obvious question goes to why was that done, who made the decision, and how did the coup play out over time. He doesn’t need to expand the probe into 2017 if the fall-back argument of Brennan/Comey/etc. – that the dossier wasn’t important and that the real trigger was PapaD – was true. It wasn’t, and Mifsud was a setup to plant evidence of PapaD.

          It’s going to be interesting how the media spins this. They’ve called it a “conspiracy theory” for so long that listening to them talk about it is pretty hilarious. They’re going to embarrass themselves because they won’t know the particulars, which is going to create even more problems for the coup plotters. You can’t defend the coup plotters if you don’t know the true facts that form the “conspiracy theory”.

          Which in turn means that the coup plotters will find limited utility going to the media…which will be clueless how to defend them.

        I’m thinking:
        Correctly predicts whether or not there are criminal referrals, the nature of those criminal referrals, and the specific individual. So the entries could range from “it’ll be a nothingburger, and consist mainly of recommendations to fix the FISA process” to “Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Page” criminal referrals tied to “conspiracy to commit x, violation of 4th amendment rights of US persons, forgery, false official statements, false testimony to the FISA court, fraud, etc”.

        I think we should ask Sundance to open up an official contest and maybe a reader poll with choices like “nothing is going to happen, total cynicism, Fitzmas 2019” and “criminal referrals of a serious nature (not “lack of candor”)”.

    AG Barr made a very forceful speech last week in defense of POTUS. But:
    A major charge against President Johnson after the Civil War was the “illegal” firing of Secretary of War Stanton (or any cabinet member) because of an unconstitutional law that was not declared so until 1920. That and other historical laws, such as progressive Democratic President Wilson’s Sedition Act, taking away freedom of speech against government policies/actions, is why I tell people to watch what laws Congress passes and any Presidents orders issued under Executive Orders does since everything is constitutional until the courts determine otherwise. The imprisoning of all Japanese Americans and some Germans and Italians by FDR in 1941 was by Executive Order.
    A Dem president could declare all private ownership of firearms being illegal and start seizing them “legally” as local officials did in New Orleans during Karina. That seizure took years to get declared illegal. Meanwhile, those citizens were defenseless for the remainder of the emergency and maybe beyond.
    The rule of law, as was required in the Soviet Union’s Constitution, is only as good as those who are in charge.

      You know, I find it interesting that I haven’t seen any news article effectively comparing the impeachment of Pres. Andrew Johnson (17th president) to the attempted impeachment of Pres. Donald Trump (45th president)

      They are almost carbon copies.

      Congress passed an unconstitutional act (the Tenure of Office Act) which said that the president could not fire any cabinet member without permission of Congress.

      This, of course, was a total violation of the executive powers of the presidency, and it was later found unconstitutional, but only after Pres. Johnson had been impeached and the nation dragged through the ensuing mess. And Congress made several attempts at impeaching Pres, Johnson, beginning in 1867, and not succeeding until 1868, when they got the formula right.

      We now have a faux impeachment proceeding on the 45th president, based partially upon the fact that he transferred/demoted the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine – an action which is as fully within the president’s purview as that of the Congressional majority to name committee chairs…..

      The hearings featuring Ambassador Yovanovitch are a de-facto resurrection of the unconstitutional Tenure of Office Act, and should be terminated with extreme prejudice by the Supreme Court.

      This “impeachment” baloney is 1868, redux.

    • Well, as far as I’m concerned, the single most important thing is that the release and the testimony will occur before this date. Because, the FISA Act (first enacted in 1978) has not stood the test of time. We cannot deny – and, Horowitz will probably explain at exhaustive length – that it has been effortlessly “gamed” by non-elected bureaucrats, such that both the Director of NSA and two FISA Judges have complained about it, and cited hundreds or thousands of violations.

      So, we should not consider “re-authorizing” a law that has failed the country so utterly. We need to begin a public process of determining what ought to replace it. That process won’t be easy or quick.

      In my humble, the PATRIOT Act should also be extensively revised.

    1) Every single document, email, text and phone call captured by the NSA of these perpetrators in and outside of the CIA, DOJ, FBI, NSC who may have crafted and executed this Presidential coup for the past 3 years

    2) Every FISA request, FBI Contractor Search and every unmasking request for the past 4 years, including any communications with FISA judges.

    3) Every document email, text, phone call communication and FINANCIAL transactions from Ukraine to Americans that occurred since the 2014 Ukraine Coup.

    4) The Weiner Laptop, the Hillary Server, the NSA captured DNC emails the 47 Hammer hard drives, PapaD’s serial numbers and Mifsud’s phones

    5) Depose Jullian Assange, Ed Butowsky, Ellen Ratner and the 2 attending physicians who worked on Seth Rich.

    6) And can open up any investigation and subpoena anyone at the drop of a hat beyond what Durham is doing

    So again there is NOT ONE THING that Barr can not see, do or declassify (other than the bleach bit Server and smashed blackberrys) in order to get to the truth and the bottom of this Presidential coup, the Ukraine Coup and the Burmisa issues.

    With all of this that is at his finger tips and under his complete and total control is it even possible that the IG Report would come back as milk toast?

    Is it even conceivable or possible that Barr comes back with zero indictments??

    AG Barr’s speech about the assault on religious liberty that he gave at Norte Dame, and his recent speech at the Federalist Society on the assaults on the Executive by the other two branches of our government give me reason to believe that he is in pursuit of a systemic failure of our institutions.

    I think the best analogy in our history for the present coup attempt is the decision taken by Andrew Johnson to invoke a military tribunal to prosecute the Lincoln assassins. In our present situation there are so many perpetrators with varying levels of conspiracy as to be impossible to effectively prosecute individually in civil courts, especially in Washington. The Horowitz reports to date provide enough evidence, in my opinion, to support prosecutions all round.

    I hope AG Barr gives another speech in which he presents the administration’s strategy for the use of a military tribunal to quickly and decisively get this travesty behind us.

    This is going to create all kinds of mischeif for the media leftists. Do they go to the shiffshow to keep controlling the narrative or do they try to deconstruct and spin the FISA report.

    Decisions, decisions. Far too much pressure on those mental midgets.

    As for Horowitz, I am managing my expectations.

      There is no way for them to counter a 500 page report with whatever iteration of their covering narrative they attempt after publication.

      Physics’ Law of Conservation of Energy applies to political scandals. In other words, once the energy has been created it can only be transformed or transferred. In the instant context, as I’ve noted for some time, the Democrat Party is being destroyed by the Administrative State filth that tried to throw the election to Hillary and then destroy POTUS Trump.

      If you play out the cards, particularly as we now know the schedule and so much more, it’s a lose-lose proposition for the Democrats. The only question I have is when out of naked self-interest AND good of the nation the Democrats are going to cut Brennan et. al. loose.

    I’m just hoping & praying American citizens who DON’T work for the FEDS don’t have to drain the swamp ourselves. We never intended to pay exorbitant TAXES to promote the CRUD, CRUST & CORRUPTION. It’s time Constitutional Patriots working at the FED, if there are ANY left, clean house otherwise we have NO USE FOR THEM ANYMORE.

    “Is it a trust issue? President Trump to your face is telling you he drains the swamp.
    All the players are placed carefully over 3 years..

    How could you trust him in 2015 with his “lofty” goals but when he says:
    “We are winning”
    “I’m draining the swamp” you drop your head? Kind of pathetic.”

    I didn’t trust him in 2015. I despised Hillary and all Dems. I trust him now though. At the same time, I don’t pay attention as much to what he says as what he does.

    Someone said re. Trump: His enemies take him literally but not seriously while his supporters take him seriously but not literally. I think there’s truth in that.

      IMHO that’s the right strategy for now.
      Keep your head down, and watch what the President and his allies actually DO.
      Words are fleeting and cheap.
      Actions have lasting consequences.

    So the IG testifies two days before Congress adjourns for the holidays and the man ignores it. Hmmm suspicious timing indeed.

    Alexander Downer is one of the keys. An important one.
    Could you do a little header about him with a picture of stockings.
    He is a true weak link which needs to be pushed.
    For some reason everything he touches turns to dross.
    Kryptonite to Brennan and the plotters.
    Please?

    Question, does POTUS have to sign off on this extension?
    i.e. Congress can’t extend without his signature, right??

    The IG Report and impeachment hoax will be going on at the same time. I hope it stretches Lawfare thin. A lot of lies for the Democommunists and their media propagandists to be juggling at the same time. Even the most experienced jugglers reach a limit on how many objects can be juggled at the same time.

    If Barr declines to seek indictments, he will go down as the worst villain in all of this. Not the perpetrators. Barr.
