DOJ Corruption – The Fork in The Road Few Noticed – What Bill Barr Needs to Explain to Everyone…

Foolishness and betrayal of our country have served to reveal dangers within our present condition. Misplaced corrective action, regardless of intent, is neither safe nor wise. The intelligence apparatus was weaponized against our candidate by those who controlled the levers of government. This is what AG Bill Barr needs to explain to the nation.

The position of Bill Barr today is a direct result of decisions made by the DOJ in the Fall of 2017 & Summer of 2018. The events surrounding the leaking of the FISA warrant used against U.S. person Carter Page, and the 2018 DOJ decision not to prosecute SSCI Security Director James Wolfe for those leaks, was the fork in the road moment for the DOJ.

Attorney General Jeff Session was recused, Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein was in charge and the Mueller investigation was ongoing. That was when the DOJ made a decision not to prosecute Wolfe for leaking classified information. DC U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu signed-off on a plea deal where Wolfe plead guilty to only a single count of lying to the FBI.

If the DOJ had pursued the case against Wolfe for leaking the FISA application, everything would have been different.  The American electorate would have seen evidence of what was taking place in the background effort to remove President Trump. We would be in an entirely different place today if that prosecution or trial had taken place.

Three 2018 events revealed the Wolfe issue:

EVENT ONE – On February 9th, 2018, the media reported on text messages from 2017 between Senate Intelligence Committee Vice-Chairman Mark Warner and Chris Steele’s lawyer, a lobbyist named Adam Waldman.

EVENT TWO – Four months after the Mark Warner texts were made public, on June 8th, 2018, another headline story surfaced.  An indictment for Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Security Director James Wolfe was unsealed on June 7th, 2018.

EVENT THREE – Slightly less than two months after release of the Wolfe indictment, another headline story.  On July 21st, 2018, the DOJ/FBI declassified and publicly released the FISA application(s) used against former Trump campaign advisor Carter Page.

♦ Later on December 14th 2018 a fourth albeit buried public release confirmed everything.  The FBI filed a sentencing recommendation proving it was the Carter Page FISA that was leaked by Wolfe:

HINDSIGHT – What we didn’t know at the time, simultaneous to the decision-making regarding Wolfe, was another (a second) DOJ cover-up effort was taking place surrounding the origin of the Russia-collusion fraud.

To further understand the decision-making of Rosenstein/Liu, as to why they hid the James Wolfe leak it is important to note the DOJ in the Eastern District of Virginia was creating the cover-story to block sunlight on the origin of how Wikileaks gained the leaked DNC emails.

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 2019 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 Eastern District of Virginia (EDVA) where Dana Boente was U.S. Attorney at the time.  The grand jury indictment was sealed from March of 2018 until after Mueller completed his investigation, April 2019.

How does this all connect?

What does it mean?

James Wolfe was confronted about his leaking by the FBI in December of 2017.  At the same time the FBI were investigating Wolfe and the SSCI, the FBI was also investigating Wikileaks and Julian Assange.   This matters because it shows what the mindset was within the DOJ in late 2017 and early 2018.

In both examples, Wolfe and Assange, the actions by the DOJ reflect a predisposition to hide the much larger background story:

• A prosecution of Wolfe would have exposed a complicit conspiracy between corrupt U.S. intelligence actors and the United States senate. Two branches of government essentially working on one objective; the removal of a sitting president.  The DOJ decision protected multiple U.S. agencies and congress.

• A non-prosecution of Assange would have exposed a complicit conspiracy between corrupt U.S. intelligence actors and a host of political interests who created a fraudulent Russia-collusion conspiracy with the central component of Russia “hacking” the DNC.  If Assange were allowed to show he received the DNC emails from a leaker, and not from a hack, the central component of the Russia interference narrative would collapse.  The DOJ decision protected multiple U.S. agencies and Robert Mueller.

As soon as Robert Mueller was going to release his Russia report, the EDVA shut down Assange with the DOJ indictment; in a similar way the DOJ shut down Wolfe with a weak plea agreement.

Again, the key takeaway here is the timing.  Both DOJ operations were taking place at the same time (Fall 2017 through spring/summer 2018).  Both hold a similar purpose.

What we can see from both DOJ operations is an intentional effort by Main Justice not to expose the epicenter of a multi-branch effort against the White House.

Some people within the FBI were obviously participating along with people within the DOJ.  However, not all Washington DC FBI agents/officials were involved.  We know there were genuine investigators, at least in the Wolfe case, because their investigative evidence shows Wolfe was leaking classified information.  If they did not present the investigative evidence that proves Wolfe leaked, quite simply we wouldn’t have it to show you.

Unfortunately, in hindsight we can see something internally within the DOJ happened because the FBI evidence against Wolfe was buried. Some high-level group inside the DOJ in Washington DC, in the Summer of 2018, was making decisions on what NOT to do.

These two events highlight corruption within the DOJ that existed despite the presence of AG Jeff Sessions, and apparently with the participation of DAG Rod Rosenstein.

The decisions in the Wolfe case are critical.  That’s the fork in the road.  If the Wolfe prosecution had continued it would have undoubtedly surfaced that key government officials and politicians were working together (executive and legislative).

The ramifications of the Wolfe case are stunning.  Had the prosecution continued it’s very likely a seditious conspiracy would have surfaced.

♦ I often field a question:  If you know this; if all of this information is in the public sphere; then why didn’t any member of the media cover it?

Here’s the answer: They couldn’t…. At least they couldn’t cover it and still retain all of the claims they had been making since March 2017 when journalist Ali Watkins gained a fully non-redacted copy of the Carter Page FISA application and first renewal.

Politico, The New York Times, CNN, MSNBC and The Washington Post are all implicated in the James Wolfe leak to Ali Watkins.  They had the FISA information since March 2017, yet those media outlets were disingenuously falsifying their reporting on the actual content of the FISA application despite their actual knowledge.

Remember all of the media denials about what Devin Nunes wrote in the “Nunes memo”?  Remember the media proclaiming the Steele Dossier was not part of the FISA application?

How was the media fifteen months later (July 2018) going to report on the Wolfe leak to Watkins without admitting they had been manufacturing stories about its content for the past year-and-a-half?

It was in the media’s interest NOT to cover, or dig into, the Wolfe story.

Additionally, from both the DOJ and Media perspective, coverage of the Wolfe leak would prove the senate intel committee (SSCI) was, at a minimum, a participating entity in the coup effort.  That same SSCI is responsible for oversight over the CIA, FBI, DOJ-NSD, ODNI, DNI, and all intelligence agencies.

Worse yet, all officers within those agencies require confirmation from the SSCI (including Chair and Vice-Chair); and any discussion of the Wolfe leak would highlight the motive for ongoing corruption within the SSCI in blocking those nominations (see John Ratcliffe).

Stunning ramifications.

There was a clear fork in the road and the DOJ took the path toward a cover-up; which, considering what the DOJ was simultaneously doing with Mueller and the EDVA regarding Assange, is not entirely surprising.

Was that decision wrong?  Oh hell yes, it was corrupt as heck. .

Were the decisions done with forethought to coverup gross abuses of government? Yes.

Where the DOJ is today is directly connected to the decisions the DOJ made in 2017 and 2018 to protect themselves and internally corrupt actors from discovery.

It is often said: “the coverup is always worse than the crime.”  This is never more true than with these examples, because where we are today… now miles down the path of consequence from those corrupt decisions… is seemingly disconnected from the ability of any institutional recovery.  That’s now the issue for Bill Barr.

If Bill Barr wanted to deal with the issue he would not be telling President Trump to stop talking about the corruption; instead he would be holding a large press conference to explain to the American people about that fork in the road.

That type of honest sunlight delivery means taking people back into the background of the larger story and explaining what decisions were made; with brutal honesty and without trepidation for the consequences, regardless of their severity and regardless of the friends of Bill Barr compromised by the truth.

Here’s a big reason why Bill Barr should take that approach: We Know.

We know; the DOJ trying to hide it doesn’t change our level of information.

Regardless of whether Bill Barr actually admits what surrounds him, there are people who know… We know…. You know…. AG Bill Barr shouting ‘don’t tweet‘ into the microphone like the Wizard of Oz doesn’t change the fact the curtain has been removed.

Turn around Bill, it’s time to come clean.

          The ONLY thing that would attract more attention and provide some kind of deterrent for such behavior in the future would be indictments, arrests, and prosecutions, but those have only happened to those in opposition to the Deep State coup participants.

    Why doesn’t PT do a test?

    Since the Carter Page FISA Leak case is over with just a wrist slap, tell Barr to declassify all the evidence such as texts, emails and phone calls, notes, interviews for the American people.

    Include all correspondence between Jessie Liu and RR on this case.

    If the DOJ has nothing to hide or fear it shouldn’t be a problem right?

    Then I’d also tell Barr to declassify the RR scope memos.

    IMO PT would instantly see push back and massive resistance.

    But from the reaction it should tell PT all he needs to know and the sooner he puts Sidney Powell in as a WH Presidential Appointee as Justice Czar the better.

    Otherwise IMO what we got from the FISA Leak is what We the People will get on everything else leading up to Nov.

    Let’s not waste the time, Mr. President, appoint a Justice Czar, reporting to you, with full authority to declassify and in-redact any document related to this coup and to shadow Barr and Durham so no stones are overlooked.

    The American people demand the truth and equal justice, Mr. President.

    Barr and his whole extended family live and work in the DC area. His brother is a professor at Delaware university, his daughter’s husband works for the DoJ. His wife is close friends with Mueller’s wife. Barr is not going to endanger his whole family. There will one or two minor prosecutions with no jail time (or very little), and he will declare that the DoJ’s problems are fixed. He is a career public servant as are most of his family and friends. We need to FORGET about all of this (for now) and concentrate on Trump winning bigly and taking back the house and a few extra senate seats to counter Delecto-Merk-Collins. Then Trump can appoint true outsiders to clean up the swamp. And maybe even relocate entire departments to rural America. Infact, he should go into the election promising to send entire federal departments to swing states that would love the hundreds of thousands of jobs.

  10. The LACK OF a prosecution against James Wolfe ( given that the prosecutors KNEW 100 % the evidentiary details ) is every bit as egregious a case of prosecutorial misconduct ( cover up ) as the fabricated cases created to ” destroy ” Michael Flynn and Roger Stone.
    Ignoring EXISTING evidence is wrong ; fabricating evidence is wrong.
    Sidney Powell has written a fabulous book on PROSECUTORIAL MISCONDUCT by the DOJ prosecutors in the past — ” License to Lie ” . I have read it. I have an autographed copy.
    It will cause you to give up hope in our fake Justice Sytem . And ( as she articulates in her book ) , you are smacked in the face to realize that the many BAR groups all over the states , are merely dues paying lawyer unions who work 99 per cent in their own interest. Lawyers protect lawyers. Screw the clients , the hell with the public ! Sidney Powell found out via the Texas BAR ( she writes about it ). I know this via the Florida BAR. Who throws away / dismisses a valid BAR COMPLAINT against a Tallahasse prosecutor ( affirmed by a BAR grievance committee in May 2008 ) over a 10 second , no evidence he said / she said case , WHILE at the same time allowing Jeffrey Epstein to walk free in July 2008 ?
    The Florida BAR BOG does this in secret meetings.. And just for kicks , they ignore evidence of an actual rape in Virginia 15 months before the non- event in Tallahassee. I have it all …lived it all. And 75 communications to POTUS appear to be getting attention. The first BAR Association was formed in 1878…… and therefore they have zero legal or constitutional legitimacy from the founding of the Republic. Why are they now just like cockroaches …. everywhere !!

    This AG Barr is why so many Americans are pissed off.

    So let’s recap all of the “incidents” that have occurred over the past few years and you tell me if truth and justice is paramount anymore and if there isn’t a two tier system of justice within DC!

    3) Anwan Brothers – No Crimes, No Indictments

    4) HRC Unsecured Server & 33K Emails – No Crimes, No Indictments

    5) Wiener Laptop Email Contents – No Crimes, No Indictments (outside Wiener)

    6) DNC Server Hack – Alleged Crime, No Indictments

    7) Seth Rich murder – No arrests

    8) Fake Dossier and fraud on FISA Court 4 times – No Crimes, No Indictments

    9) Years of FISA Abuse – No Crimes, No Indictments

    10) Years of FIB Contractor Abuse – No Crimes, No Indictments

    11) Carter Page FISA Leak – No Crime for Leaking (just one count lying)

    12) Numerous other Classified Leaks – No Crimes, No Indictments

    13) Numerous referrals to DOJ – No Crimes, No Indictments

    14) Numerous Agents violating policy – No Crimes, No Indictments

    15) Ukraine WB fraud – No Crimes, No Indictments

    16) Impeachment Fraud and made up narrative by House Leader – No Crimes, No Indictments

    17) Ukraine Money Laundering – No Crimes, No Indictments

    18) Epstein – No Crimes, No indictments

    Seriously, look at this list and virtually NOTHING from our Government!

    I’m not sure it is even statistically possible but here it is.

    I think as more and more Americans see lists like these coupled with the lists of their people who got a pass and our people who get indicted, they clearly see the bias and injustice.

    The American people see and now know, so what’s it going to be, truth and equal justice or just more of the same?

    A Justice Czar such as Sidney Powell, appointed by PT, whereby he grants her full authority to declassify, un-redact then read and review any documents related to Russia Gate, Spygate, FISA Gate, Muller Gate and Impeachment Gate is NOW a MUST if Americans are ever going to get to the truth and see Justice administered.

    (Note: Obama appointed 45 Czars during his Presidency)

    Not only does our Justice Czar go back and examine all the “hidden and suppressed documents” such as the many Sundance has outlined while advising the President, she sits in on all Barr and Durham meetings to ensure all stones are being properly turned over.

    Yes, this would be awkward, uncomfortable for some but necessary IMO to ensure everything is on the up and up. My hope is Barr would just resign making it his choice. But Sidney stays put.

    Yes, the other option is simply to fire Barr now but not only is there considerable media flak by that move but PT ends up being forced to elevate Rosen, Barr’s hand picked buddy so what has the President really gained?

    This option is less damaging and is simply the President wanting a second set of eyes on things.

    The Czar strategy is two fold.

    1) Puts someone in who Americans and PT trusts completely, to get to and expose the truth even if it is damaging to the DOJ/FBI.

    2) It gives PT a second pair of eyes to ensure him all stones are being turned over properly.

    3) It keeps the digging for the truth going NOW, all the way up to Nov vs allowing things to get buried, ignored, while creating the narrative that there is no there, there all the way up to Nov.

    4) Gives Sidney a huge running start into the investigation and come Nov, assuming PT gets 5-8 new, additional Republican Senators an easier confirmation after Barr and Wray are sent packing.

    Since we have had some coordination of late via Sundance, Rush, and Lou Dobbs, might I suggest a coordinated Justice Czar thread that grabs PT’s attention. Then We the People need to back it up via massive tweeting and chanting “We Want Sidney” at ALL PT rallies.

    The bottom line is, until we get a true MAGA person in place in the DOJ who has real integrity to expose the truth and administer equal justice regardless where it leads, our DOJ will never be about and for, We the People.

    Imagine for a second if the first thing a Justice Czar did was review EVERY document and communication, including those between Jessie Liu and Rod Rosenstein regarding the Carter Page FISA Leak? Do you see the instant accountability that this would bring?

    Then our Justice Czar could review EVERY document and communication related to Julian Assange suppressed indictment and what was the true purpose of it?

    With an honest Justice Czar there is no more hiding IMO. Sunlight will reign supreme again!

    We the People can not live with what we have today and we can not wait until Nov, as far too much “concrete” could be poured over much of this.

    It is time Mr. President and Czars were very prevalent in the prior administration so it would be hard for the media to poo poo it.

    The American people have had it with the blatant disregard for lady justice and the two tiered system of justice that DC spews down the throats of, We the People!

      Bogeyfree,
      I do agree.

      The corruption is so vast, and so deep, no one currently who has the power to indict or declass will do it.
      PT and Rudy have everything, but they need someone who actually wants the information.

      I have a question for treepers.

      If PT ordered a declass of docs, would we know?

      Remember when PT tried to get Radcliffe for DNI?

      That is where docs get held up, if I remember correctly.
      Isn’t it a process? IC is not going to allow them released.

      PT can start firing people, but with his enemies in IC and every department, seems his strategy is exposing as much as he can without relying on the corrupt agencies.

      PT still navigating the swamp waters, trying to stay alive so he can MAGA.

    I disagree that he should hold a press conference. I think every minuscule detail needs to be ferreted out and the cases PROSECUTED.

    Doing so, regardless of the DC jury pool will bring all to sunlight. Whether or not convictions come, the coup will be exposed.

      I would LOVE it if PT held a press conference as you outlined above! Unfortunately, most likely it would be portrayed as “more conspiracy theories from Trump”. Case in point: Last night, 60 Minutes aired a segment about PT’s call with Ukraine President where he asked about the DNC server & Crowdstrike. The objective of the segment was to spin the Crowdstrike/Server angle with the FBI stating it WAS NOT necessary for them to physically examine the server since Crowdstrike had provided the FBI with a “Snapshot” of the server. SPIN! SPIN! SPIN! I’m sure many Americans take that story as fact. I don’t know the answer to these dilemmas, but I pray to God that He works this all together for good & all is revealed & justice is served in a way that sets things right!

    DOJ Mission Statement
    “To enforce the law and defend the interests of the United States according to the law; to ensure public safety against threats foreign and domestic; to provide federal leadership in preventing and controlling crime; to seek just punishment for those guilty of unlawful behavior; and to ensure fair and impartial administration of justice for all Americans.”

    Thomas Jefferson wrote, “The most sacred of the duties of government [is] to do equal and impartial justice to all its citizens.” This sacred duty remains the guiding principle for the women & men of the U.S. Department of Justice.- From the official US DOJ website – what a joke!

    Eliminate the fork in the road. AG Barr should change the mission statement of the DOJ. The DOJ should just say honestly that high ranking government bureaucrats within the DOJ/FBI/IC and their close associates outside the Federal Govt aren’t subject to our Federal laws. Some high ranking bureaucrats are just too important to be crippled/frustrated by the Federal Laws that WTP must obey! We’ve become a nation of men not laws!

    We can be confident that D0J have been running COVER for the Dem Facade of Support, & their consistent election interference since at least 2009.

    I say this having been skimming thru James O’Keefe’s last book. In it he mentions the 2008 election, where in Philly they had Black Panthers at polling stations (among many other violations & voter fraud). Apparently, 6 DOJ investigators had built a strong case against at least 2 of those criminal B/P actors.

    Enter the Nobama Administration. That case was shutdown. So the election-oriented cover-ups being orchestrated, have only snowballed from there– MINIMUM.

    Why would they feel it necessary to hide a widely known (at the time) unlawful activity? Well beyond Philly being known for excessive election fraud, JO makes the point that in over 59 Precincts, there was “ZERO votes” for Romney. The odds of this, he compares to being struck by lightning, while being eaten by a shark! It defied the most minimal in voting trends.

    So the bigger implication here, they did NOT want to open a can of worms by shining ANY light on the Dem initiated corrupt activities in the area. And if it was going on there, it’s guaranteed to have occurred countless other places.

    The Nobama Admin likely spent the next 8 years, flushing out, a/o silencing any non-loyalists. Just as they did with the upper-brass in the military, FBI, etc.

    My question is, where are those who were stopped from doing their sworn duty today? Why have they NEVER banded together to come forward??

The compromise worked out by the Committee on Public Safety? Execute members of both arguments.

      One, AG Sessions appointing of USA Huber to look at who knows what, because he didn’t look at anything as far as we know.
      Two, the only DOJ criminal prosecution I remember of another DOJ/FBI is the one DOJ turned spy 10 years ago? And the Whitey Bulger-FBI crooks. Incidentally all of whom were in the Boston FBI Office when Holy Saint Mueller was in the Boston USA’s office. But, probably didn’t know them, probably never had any of them on a case. He was there since ’83 as Asst USA, and then as promoted to US Atty there 86-87 all while Whitey and the Boston FBI were in the Days of Wine and Roses.

    Our government has become a criminal organization It is used to ingratiate a small group of self -anointed rulers who have been left to their treachery for decades. Never facing the laws that they pass for the rest of us. In fact House and Senate rules have specific set asides and this extends to the greater swamp as well.

    Remember the attacks that our Great President Trump drew when he and Melania cam down the escalator? It was “bipartisan” derision, from every politician, to every assembled panel on the MSM, especially FOX. He was an existential threat to their fiefdoms, their nepotistic placement throughout the swamp. In my experience anytime the swamp says “bipartisan” I know “We The People” are about to be screwed. The same holds true for the swamp hysteria when they realized that Donald J.Trump was going to win. The entire swamp moved into protect mode and that’s what we are still a witness to. Clean up on aisle 9.

    It was never going to be fixed by one man and one election. No matter how great President Trump is, and I mean brother this dude is Superman. We must stay involved and justice will come. If we fall back into complacency, apathy and see this as a fait accompli. The swamp will coalesce, making certain that the people never have a say unless it’s a swamp rat we’re voting on. In fact, I could envision swamp rats taking the actual Constitution and Bill of Rights out on the mall and burning them, broadcast live by a jubilant MSM. The very thing they swore an oath to defend, (we can see clearly what an oath from a swamp rat is worth) …declaring the USA a workers paradise and we finally don’t have deal with that old piece of parchment ever again, or those pesky voters.

    This was never going to be a straight line. We are an existential threat to the swamp, they know it, good. Regardless of what Bill Barr does, and this is vitally important! …we stick with our Great President Trump, We Will Crush Them!

Some need to be allowed to quietly fade away. Some need to be arrested, tried, and imprisoned.

    Barr is experiencing nonlinear growth in corrupt targets. Going outside “Main Justice” is a holding action. Barr, perhaps as a result of Durham, but probably more a result of the fake-peachment and the outright, defiant, insubordination of the Stone sentencing, seems to be taking steps to try and mitigate the damage, while realizing he is caught behind enemy lines in Washington DC.

    What is that hit?

    The total and absolute destruction of the institution of justice; maybe, even the country.

    How do you convict a criminal when it can be proven that the institution trying the case is itself corrupt. You can not! And there in lies the problem — everyone knows they are corrupt but until its proven we must go on believing in our system of government and its basic tenet — its an honest government that does not lie and such….

    That last part is key — the basic tenet of our government is that it is for the people and it is honest.

    Think about the ramifications once it is proven that our government is not for the people and it lies….. thus we become the lie…..

    I had a very discouraging thought this weekend:

    The founders created our government with checks and balances. If one branch radically tries to depart from the status quo, the system is designed to enable the other two branches to keep it in check.

    If the status quo is corruption and the executive branch is trying to radically depart from that corruption, the judicial and legislative branches can stop it, BY DESIGN.

    Accepting this, what are some conclusions that can be drawn?

    The corruption occurred over decades and was in progress well before Obama. The system is designed to allow change slowly so the corruption came about slowly.

    It is very unlikely that a single president limited to two terms will make significant progress toward eliminating the corruption. That would be relatively fast, radical change that the system is designed to slow down.

    If a return to honest governance is going to happen, Trump has to be the beginning of that change that will occur over decades, not the savior to bring the change to its conclusion.

Without getting bogged down in disputable details, the FISA court, CIA, FBI, DOJ, NSA, IRS, and other agencies will need major reform or even elimination. These are core to our federal government in different ways, and opposition will be massive and powerful. To do so requires an indisputable support from the American people, even if that is 50%+1. Today we don’t have that. Maybe after November 3, 2020.

    I want them ALL punished. The operatives, the leaders, the instigators, and the beneficiaries. And there is the biggest problem I see.

    If you want the beneficiaries and the true leaders punished, you’ll need to have the operatives and the middle management leadership cooperating, giving evidence, and essentially ending their government careers. Not a very attractive prospect for them, though real jail time might make that a tolerable alternative. So who are we looking for to punish?

    Certainly the operatives, the Strock/Page/other FBI & DOJ operatives, even AAGs, all of them were instrumental in carrying out the multiple conspiracies we are now aware of. But they face criminal liability for doing. How about those who INSTRUCTED? Previous AGs, D-CIA, IRS commissioners, DNIs, these are the controllers, the ones who solicited for conspiracy, for treason. Yest they have masters.

    We want Hillary and Barack to answer for their roles and actions. And that will:

    – require their minions to testify, under threat of penalty. Good luck. These minor players will not want to give up their bosses, and their bosses likewise. Their prospects for future employment will dim if they give up the ones who are going to be running the places they aspire to work at ince they leave government service.

    – require the leadership to admit to and betray their heroes and leaders. Not too likely unless they face real personal ruin. Is that possible unless they are themselves charged?

    – and require that the highest-level political leadership be held to account their conspiracy to commit a coup? That’s more a political act, more like an impeachment than a prosecution. Can we even do this?

    I’m hopeful that Trump and Barr understand this better than I, and recognizes they cannot burn it all down without political support and a plan of action. It’s a safe bet we do not know what is really happening in the Durham investigation(s), but this mostly cannot be done too close to the coming elections, or it will be discredited as a campaign tactic. Too soon, and you risk not having all of your ducks in a row, able to guarantee convictions before juries. If any get loose, they are a danger to the Republic. And finally, actually be concerned that the opposition, if in jeopardy of real ruin and real damage, may react in ways rarely seen before. We see thugs in the street assaulting political opponents. We see members of Congress shot in a public place. Will it get worse? What does ‘worse’ look like?

    I think I understand the necessity for deliberate action. But the patience is painful.

    Dear [AG] Barr,

    Without ACCOUNTABILITY, there is NO deterrence. Without DETERRENCE, there is NO reason for change. Without any CHANGE, the CRIMINALS become emboldened.

    The PUNISHMENT must fit the CRIME.

    Just ask any parent if this most BASIC concept is TRUE?!

    As Leaving and Philip Faustman put their finger on the fact that two monumental changes need to take place in order to save the republic:

    1. The corruption needs to be cleaned out. A few dozen people need to be sent to prison.
    2. The federal government needs to be reduced to Constitutional limits.

    If you don’t do #2, the corruption will come back in just a few years. If both #1 and #2 get done, then it will be proof yet again of divine providence looking out for this republic.

      TCH and many others have unraveled the silent coup by the corrupt FBI/CIA/Obummer Admin and Dimwits and GOPe…its’ as plain as the noses on our faces. Yet AG Barr is hell bent on preserving the DOJ “integrity” overlooking what’s in front of his face. It’s all corrupt, they are all corrupt and it’s not going to be fixes any time soon. Get used to it and structure your life appropriately.

      When articles like this reference “the DOJ” did this or “the FBI” did that, we all should realize that these entities are incapable of producing these actions, these are the actions of individuals or groups within these organizations. It’s imperative that we identify the actual person or persons responsible for these decisions. Otherwise, it’s virtually impossible to clean up this mess.

      I beg to differ with your few dozen people estimate. IMO, we need a few hundred dozen people to go to prison

    I wonder what would happen if Trump pardoned Assange. 🤔

    They wouldn’t be able to keep him locked away incommunicado.

      that pardon would trigger the mother of all six ways to sunday from the IC….

      and it would infuriate the DOJ.

      it would create an unforced error by the president and likely cost him a re-election and likely lead to a successful impeachment.

      the president is no fool.

      now….lets set that aside.

      what could be done without getting involved in high stake, no body gets out of the door, strategies?

      1. the president can URGE that DOJ drop all charges, commit to the UK that assange will not be held criminally liable (it’s an extradition problem right now, since the charges elevate to espionage and that carries a death sentence in law (potentially, but unlikely), and the UK provisions an exemption from its extradition treaties with the US on criminal violations that involve death penalties). This political pressure accomplishes nearly the same effects without seriously inviting danger to the president, his person literally and his re-election. What it would do is create a re-opening to a larger public review of facts….it would broaden the dimensions…it would force the left and the corrupt state at the DOJ and FBI to respond. This would create a long overdue debate and intensity for matters of the russia is coming predicate…It would be a sell out crowd for the attention it would command. It would allow the president to get involved without being accused of steering the work of the DOJ…rather that he would be putting a universe of sunlight directly on it to explain itself. And the IC. I rather doubt this president has any intentions of becoming a martyr by these corruptors who still wield a serious amount of dark power..but he can make them very nervous and agitated and if nothing else, provide an opportunity for we the people to witness even more unforced errors from these corruptors (if that’s even necessary for anyone following closely…but more for the “ordinary” citizens who does not)

      2. Assange may have an opportunity to open up about this case, all of it. right now, assange has already served his failure to appear sentence. A UK judge order he be held in jail pending extradition process. This decision was based on an “absconding” predicate. (note: now you know why US due process is far more fair and equal in the US!)….While there has been no official final decisions on how long his extended jail holding pattern or the extradition hearing has concluded, this month, February, was the timeline for the hearing. I have not heard of read anything in open source to indicate any developments at all on this matter. Assange in theory could be indefinitely held in jail based on this premise of the absconding order by the UK judge. But I think it will eventually be challenged even by the most hardened souls. It’s exceedingly damaging even by UK law standards. The point here, is that eventually the UK is either going to bounce him out of stocks and he has an opportunity to get some much needed press time to make his statements to anyone who will listen…or the UK and the US will work out some sort of deal that realizes a death penalty is off the table and they can process him out to the US court/DOJ for trial. Should that happen, we expect Assange to be placed in terminal infinite time-out as this trial would ultimately risk his defense counsel making a good case that he cannot defend any charges without first reconciling the DNC hack. I am sure the DOJ is going to narrow focus the charges on an alleged assistance he gave to manning to crack some passwords. But I think there might be an opening…it’s a long shot..about 50/50.

      what the president does in either of these two situations is not ordering a official pardon, but leverages the case to spot light the problems the DOJ has created and allows the deep dive (again) to the nature and origin of russia is coming Bullcorn.

      does it help satisfy justice and put criminals in stocks…probably not…and as much as that makes me angry to admit…I think the greater good as a tradeoff is that trump can use this opportunity of his office to push as hard as possible against the corrupt state…and that has immeasurable effects on how citizens vote…upon whom they place trust (or not)…and might lead to some greater culture of awareness and accountability in our DOJ…I don’t know if it will change the current fleet of reprobates…but I would expect at least some of them will forever be shamed and damaged ….history should be very fair and accurate to what these corruptors have done. If not by jail, then by reputation, we shall consider.
