Barr’s “Outside Prosecutors” and the FISC Sequestration Agreement…

When the FISA Court responded to the DOJ Inspector General report in December and January 2020 they requested an action plan from the DOJ and FBI to respond to the issues raised about misrepresentations to the court.

The DOJ/FBI replied to the FISA Court admitting the last two FISA renewals (April, June ’17) used against Carter Page were insufficiency predicated while withholding opinion on the original application (Oct ’16) and first renewal (Jan ’17).

To address the consequences of fraudulently obtained FISA warrants the DOJ and FBI informed the court they would begin a process to “sequester” all collected evidence from all four FISA warrants. [FISA COURT LINK]

Sequestering the evidence is essentially a search for what investigative material the FISA warrants were used to obtain; ie. the search for the fruit of the poisoned tree; and then a review of all DOJ/FBI cases that may have utilized that investigative material.

In late January the DOJ contacted the FISA court and asked for an extension to the deadline.  The FISA court granted an extension until February 5th [LINK]  The response from the DOJ has not yet been declassified or released by the FISC for public review.

However, with recent media reporting of AG Barr using “outside prosecutors” to review current, former and ongoing cases, it simply makes sense this ‘outsider’ effort is part of the DOJ/FBI sequestration review.

If you consider that several DOJ offices may be involved with the material under review, including the Southern District of New York; The Eastern District of New York; The Eastern District of Virginia; The Washington DC District, and even Main Justice itself; it makes sense that outside DOJ personnel would be needed for this review.

Additionally, all of the various FBI field offices who may have used the FISA authorizations as the underpinning evidence to gain separate Title-1 and/or Title-3 warrants, wiretaps or National Security Letters, in their various investigative cases would also need to be reviewed.   This is an aspect the media is not discussing while they write opinions about AG Bill Barr bringing in outside DOJ attorneys.

The media are framing the use of outside attorneys as Bill Barr working on behalf of President Trump to undermine current and former prosecutions.  However, understanding the FISC order requiring the sequestration effort, the use of outsiders is absolutely necessary.

The same U.S. Attorneys, prosecutors and FBI agents who used evidence gathered from the FISA warrants cannot be the same attorneys, agents and prosecutors making decisions about what parts of the warrants were used to gather evidence and how each part of any case was assembled by the use therein.  It is a simple matter of a conflict of interest.

Additionally, the Robert Mueller team of FBI investigators and special counsel prosecutors certainly used the fraudulently obtained FISA warrants as part of their investigative evidence collection.   Common sense would tell us this had to be the case or the FBI and Mueller team would not have requested renewals of the FISA warrant.

If the FBI & Special Counsel were not using the FISA warrant(s) to capture information, they would not have needed them renewed.  Despite media spin to the contrary, the simple truth of renewals holding investigative value is evident in the renewal itself (ie. common sense).

Under this rather extensive effort to find exactly which investigations -over the course of three years- were touched directly, or indirectly, by the four FISA warrants; and/or which investigative paths may have been influenced downstream or enhanced -by varying degrees of importance- by evidence stemming from the FISA warrants; a reasonable person could see how AG Bill Barr would need to put a team together to retrace the investigative steps and make the sequestration determinations.

Obviously, for reasons of biased intent, corporate left-wing media would like to ignore why outside prosecutors are needed under this framework.  Ignored in part because honest reporting would require an admission the FISA warrants were fraudulently obtained; and in part because the left-wing media have never informed the public of the DOJ/FBI sequestration effort in the first place.  Likely more than half the country has no idea the DOJ and FBI have been told to go find the material.

There have been numerous articles, thousands of words, and endless hours of pundit protestations about Bill Barr using outside DC lawyers to review all of the previous DOJ Attorney activities; yet not a single time have they ever acknowledged the originating order from the FISA court requiring the DOJ/FBI to conduct the review.   Imagine that?

New York Times – Mr. Barr has also installed a handful of outside prosecutors to broadly review the handling of other politically sensitive national-security cases in the U.S. attorney’s office in Washington, the people said. The team includes at least one prosecutor from the office of the United States attorney in St. Louis, Jeff Jensen, who is handling the Flynn matter, as well as prosecutors from the office of the deputy attorney general, Jeffrey A. Rosen. (more)

Lastly, perhaps within this process we can finally get an answer as to what legal justification Robert Mueller and the Special Counsel team used in order to gain access to all of the Trump transition team communications; which included attorney-client privileged material.

This issue from late 2017 was ignored by the mainstream media at the height of their willful blindness toward any corruption within the Mueller team:

    I do admire the tenacious reporting done here by the CTH folks. Honestly it has become so convoluted to me that I have pretty much given up trying to follow the many, many instances of corruption and criminality and the blatant lying that has gone on by US government officials.

    And as good as the folks here are I am still not convinced that the American public will ever know the complete story of this coup. The marxist cabal that is in charge of our education system will never let the story be told to the generations that follow.

    I, along with millions of others, have lost faith in the so-called justice system in the U.S. So I won’t be surprised if a very violent outcome ensues. And I will applaud it. The DC swamp need to be gone—forever. But of course, I dream.

      Don’t wish for violent outcomes buddy. Civil wars are the worst wars of all.
      But when people lose faith in the leaders , fairness, rule of law….history does suggest that violence ensues.
      The responsibility this current AG is carrying on his shoulders is historic.
      Personally though , I doubt he is up to it based on his work history. Really hope I am wrong though.
      My bet is Trump gets re-elected , and this cover up crap continues.
      The Swamp will contain and outlast Trump and re-assert itself when he goes in 2024.
      The danger (or hope) is that the American people se the threat and act , hopefully at the ballot box but if not their frustration will be volcanic.

        While it’s tactically necessary for Barr to farm out investigations to outlying districts to avoid the influence of the previous investigators in the swamp a negative impact is that it will take more time to do so. Fortunately, at this point, PDJT would appear to be on his way to a second term when most of the conclusion to this sorry episode would most likely conclude. But it goes without saying that he must be re-elected or this will all go away.

          I dont care if this takes decades. ( i personally dont have decades…) but, I am in this for the long haul. If Barr fails, try again with someone else, if that fails, keep trying. They want the lovers of our constitution discouraged, they want us to give up, they want to keep things as they are. Once Trump goes someone else will take his torch – if they fail and we get another Obama then we start again. This will always be a fight worth fighting. The people who administer justice must also be accountable to justice, and as long as we keep trying a great leader like Donald Trump will only be one election away. Nopw that we did it once – It will forever be possible. As soon as we say I quit, its back to the same garbage. we are the sieve that screens out the inhumanity. Stop trying and you’re just a useless piece of garbage they can ignore. Choose you this day who you will serve… Its not like they are going to stop. Why should we?

            IGiveUp – You’re absolutely right, but unfortunately I am highly doubtful that the Deep State will allow that to happen. We can think that POTUS has complete power to have these things done, but there is a level of power that the Deep State holds that even ties the hands of POTUS. We may see some declassification and even some indictments, but it’s quite likely we will not see all that is needed. Half of POTUS’s potential time in office is almost over, and we’ve seen how slowly this stuff moves (which should be no surprise to anyone familiar with the justice system), and 4 more years is not a lot of time to get it done. The ultimate resolution to these problems can only be had if the voters wake up and vote the UniParty out of office. That means replace all the Democrats and replace 90% of the Republicans in Washington. It will take a focused effort for a long time, many, many election cycles.

                One point: In delegating declassification authority to AG Barr, PDJT still retains the power to declassify anything he chooses. It’s like giving a front-door key to a trusted housemaid, so she can come in an clean when you’re not there. But you can also clean as much or as little as you want. If you get in the mood to mop the kitchen floor, you can, it’s your house.

                It is true that Trump does not want to spend a lot of time reviewing documents to decide what to declassify, so he assigned the job to Barr (and Barr assigns subordinates the info-gathering and primary review tasks), but The President can declassify anything at any time he chooses.

                He did not give his own authority away he simply extended it to bar. It was to allow Barr’s people to open the files and see what was there without redaction . At every turns Barr’s investigative team was going to be met with “sorry, need to know basis and you don’t need to know. This move cut that off at the knees.

    So, to from a more “Institutional Perspective, AG Barr wants to understand the scope of liability to ALL DoJ cases that used FISA. This has zero to do with Mueller and all to do with a potential tidal wave of appeals citing corrupt DoJ and FBI procedures that may or may not be coming. Such a tidal wave would literally “swamp the swamp” with inquiries, request for documents and testimony from agents and/or attorneys, past and present. It would also rope in FISA judges, who would have to answer some pretty embarrassing questions about procedures they followed.

    Personally, I hope the tidal wave does come and it would behoove media and legal personalities to encourage the tidal wave in public.

          nice synopsis Trumplandslide. Just my 2cents on the this and the comments to it: Barr is a fixer. Epstein did not kill himself and Barr (like eveyone else alive) knows it. Why would he even say suicide when it is so obvious? Why? Because they know we know, and there really isn’t any point in trying to pretend with lame excuses. No reason to weave a tangled web. “Meh- he hung himself. I’ll say no more. Deal with it.”

          We can be sure that someone has material from Epstein and that is far worse than photos of Prince Charming with a smiling girl who looks almost old enough. What I suspect is that there is a behind the scenes of mutually assured destruction going on. They will work together to remove the corrupt players from power, but they won’t all go to jail. But we don’t get to see who was raping and torturing children. Maybe that’s okay. It will just give ideas to psychos around the world.

          So where am I going with this? There is an article today about how Trump pardoned the 49’ers guy because he failed to report to the govnt that he was bribed by the governor. That seems like a tell by Trump on where we are headed next. As Trump would say, “This is not warning but a threat”. The point being made is that Trump doesn’t consider the act of being bribed as the crime to be prosecuted. We shall see if it fortells more resignations and removals without us hearing exactly why. Maybe they can all resign in mass “protest”…as they have recently threatened to do.

          Trump is a deal maker. Barr may be the devil, or not, but I would imagine that if anyone can make a deal with the Devil, Trump can probably work out a fairly decent agreement between the two of them.

          and he will get beat to hell by the corruptors…but this also means he has “leverage” against the corruptors also…a point many people here at CTH fail to recognize.

          by showing his power…he announces it in a way that cannot be ignored. And should he choose at some point to flex that ultimate power and go after some very important and powerful corruptors…that is what will allow him to be big league and gain some respect….

          respect in the sense that the corrupt left right now, does not respect his power…they are attacking him because they believe this can influence his power. But if he starts using that power, and indictments are made…and totally unfair and corrupt cases are dismissed…then they start to get a keen understanding that maybe this guy isn’t going to be pushed around and more importantly it’s probably not in their self interest to try and D$ck around with him. Of course I am simplifying and but the point is, this makes the corruptors weak….and in that weakness they will expose more of their organizational soft bellies and misconduct.

          the benefactor in this of course would be Trump….His stock goes sky high when real justice is applied..even if it doesn’t precisely fit the the type he has announced is needed…one or two hits to the corrupt DOJ/FBI and some high level profile cases would be sufficient to give rocket fuel to an explosive popularity…

          I do believe there is a growing sense of skepticism among the left voters and definitely the independents. They see the problems even if they don’t understand all of the details..they smell it….It’s unavoidable at this point. It becomes more than just newsworthy if developments lead to even more evidence (direct or not) of a very damaged justice system.

          I think even the young voters are starting to key on this.

          the other day, I had an opportunity to meet with some european small business people…just chatting..socially…without provoking the subject, the conversation led to “what is going on in your country is very bad…why are the voters not understanding this was a setup?” imagine that….visitors, objective and otherwise totally unaffected, can see the problem so easily because it just screams injustice…and these were people who literally cannot stand donald trump….I thought it was compelling.

              precisely…there are no great options for barr..

              at some point he is FORCED to take sides…

              there is no middle road.

              there is great risk to him and others should be decide to be a daisy and not commit all the way down.

              ultimately he will have to determine what forces provide the best protections..

              and while we all sit back and suggest that adhering to the doctrine of the constitution and only that rule of law…the reality is that he has to live according to his actions…with real enemies left and right at the ready to make his life and those around him a complete failure or worse.

              now there are a few things he has to consider, the most important and immediate is that Trump is likely to get elected…this is trump’s game to lose. He will not lose.

              this places the pros and cons solidly on supporting this president and restoring the integrity of the DOJ to correct misconduct that resulted in the president’s associates getting fraudulent charges.

              the risk is minimal as the corrupt left and a thorough cleanup at the DOJ is he can pull it off.

              I think we will see this drip drip drip at best. I think barr believes he can achieve some unspoken balance between the two threats to his power….he isn’t nearly as instituion oriented as most people think he is. ultimately, and in this case, he is moved significantly to the risk to his own power..or reputation as some people like to refer it.

              I think we will get “some” wins from barr…but don’t be surprised if this president dumps him anyway. And wray. This president isn’t ONLY angling for a election boost. This president knows that if barr is unwilling or fails, the DOJ corruptors are left in place to assault him and the agenda he promised.

              trump is a winner…a big winner..he is not going to accept mediocre performance.

              we can validate that fact with the way he handles his former employees….trump has no hesitation getting someone to perform a thing..and when that is complete…he collects another to perform another thing….with extraordinary successes.

              again, this is one of the reasons why trump is such a radical and a threat to the politique.

              they want tenure and associate powers….trump doesn’t see it that way at all.

              complete the mission at hand…then recruit the next team to attack the next. trump’s genius is understanding the need to place just the right people for the right task.

              he is running some school board….he’s running it like a business person would where bottom line results define personnel selection.

              barr has to acknowledge that even his vaunted AG position cannot be truly protected from trump’s mission…especially when that same DOJ stands in the most antithetical and aggressive way to block and impugn the president at the highest levels…

              trump will win…barr will probably get a few good things done, but he will be kicked to the curb when the second term begins for trump….it would be the correct thing to do….barr has created entirely too much hand waving about what his job is….

    So given that we know they know, if justice doesnt happen, we can only conclude that they were complicit in the cover up.

    This is basically what I told Lindsey Grahams office recently. I told her to give him the message that

      Barr may be a “friendly”. He may even be a decent man at the core.

      But that doesn’t necessarily guarantee he is able to step outside of his DC-center-of-government paradigm, put aside his decades of experience working inside that bubble, and truly comprehend the breadth, width, and depth of the corruption through the major government agencies PLUS the judiciary.

      No experienced politician would have ever seen the need to attempt to clean up the corruption that exists within the federal government. They had learned to accept it and live with it.

      Only an observant outsider like President Trump is able to see the Swamp for what it truly is, and understand that it needs to be stopped and drained to preserve the nation as founded. Likewise, I’m not sure Barr is up to the task because he, too, learned to accept and function within the Corrupted Swamp.

      I do hope Barr surprises me and takes bold positive action to pull the plug on the corruption by identifying and prosecuting the lawbreakers who up to now believe they are above the law..

        I think the preponderance of the evidence shows Barr already has and is continuing to press forward with “bold positive action.” Further he does so in an extremely complex hostile environment. There is good reason for us to be cynical. But neither should we fool ourselves into becoming masters of the obvious — if corruption prevails, of course their best efforts will fail and all our cynicisms will be affirmed.

        We need to remember who Barr works for; who Barr has agreed to work for, who came to an agreement to do so under the very adverse and controversial circumstances we find ourselves in today. Barr working under other bosses doesn’t tell us much about Barr working under Trump.

        I’ll continue standing with our president, Donald J. Trump. Barr is there at Trump’s pleasure. Barr is Trump’s choice in ways very different from Sessions. By all appearances they independently are working well together amidst the malignant mess they are endeavoring to make right.

        If our hunches are right about the magnitude and severity of wrongdoing they continue to uncover, then I think they will prevail. Trump and Barr represent a near perfect combination of competence, intelligence, experience, authority and will-to-truth.

        SD’s analyses are an essential tool to help us measure the perils and extent of their progress; tools that validate the purpose and effort unfolding. Most of it remains cryptic and that can be tremendously frustrating to our collective impatience.

        So I pray that things may properly ripen so that Justice is best served when ripeness comes and corrective action is formally taken. My faith remains unshaken; such action will come and because of skillful and meticulous gathering as such it will also prevail.

        The criminal intent and human failings in government service are much greater than we currently appreciate. So much bigger. There is an enormity of detail to complete and to master before ripeness comes. But ripen it continues to do.

        May we befriend the ripening as we also express our fears.

      They will pull all the evidence gathered pursuant to the two tainted Page FISA renewals, then determine how and when and in which cases it was used, then try to assess what effect it had, if any, on the outcome in those cases. It is that last part that is tricky.

      Ideally, that assessment will NOT be made by the lawyers gathering and sequestering it. Instead, they should present their findings as to where the evidence was used and what further evidence was obtained using it to the judges in all cases in which it was used, and to the lawyers for those defendants, and let the judges decide whether it had any impact on the case, and whether the convictions or plea arrangements should be overturned as a result. JUDGES should make those decisions, not the reviewing DOJ lawyers.

      By the way, this is a BIG mess, and this is just the beginning. Durham is already looking at this same issue as to the original warrant and the first renewal. If those are determined to have been obtained illegally (which they should), then everything is fatally flawed, the Mueller investigation, the prosecutions of Manafort, Papa, Flynn, all of it. PLUS, how many smaller cases we have never heard of sprung from evidence illegally gathered under the Page warrant and its renewals? ALL of it has to be opened up. FUBAR.

      And that doesn’t even begin to get to figuring out who was just over zealous and who, if anyone, was politically corrupt.

      Barr stepped through the door and found a DOJ and FBI on fire. He is gigantically busy with a gargantuan mess no AG has ever had to confront and try to clean up. Some slack would, I am sure, be appreciated.

      Eventually, the FISA Court and the DOJ are going to come to the conclusion that the illegal FISA warrants didn’t lead to illegal prosecutions. It’s that there were illegal investigations that required illegal FISA warrants to sustain them. They’ve got it exactly backwards right now. The FISA’s are evidence that the “Russia collusion” investigations that started (allegedly) in July 2016 were completely bogus…so bogus that they required illegal search warrants.

      Once the FISC and the DOJ reach that very obvious conclusion, everything from the Flynn/Stone/Papadopolous/Manafort prosecutions becomes bogus. None of them would have faced Federal prosecution in the absence of the Russia hoax led by the FBI and then Mueller. If Manafort’s prosecution had originated outside of Mueller, that one might have stuck, but it didn’t so he should be freed immediately along with the others and all charges dismissed.

        This whole business of having of “super-secret” courts order GOVERNMENT PROSECUTORS to figure out and report back to FISC (secretly) on what prosecutions were “tainted,” simply reinforces the utter incompatibility of such courts with our Constitution.

        The lawyers for potentially wrongly convicted defendants should be getting immediate access to all the fruits of the illegal warrants. THEY are the ones who should be reviewing the materials and making determinations whether their clients’ convictions must be overturned. Defense counsel might well discover and call to the attention of the Court instances of “tainted evidence use” that even newly appointed “independent” prosecutors might miss. The defendants have a constitutional right to such assistance, and the Court needs to hear from both sides, not just one.

          Totally agree. But like I said, if I was on the Defense side, I wouldn’t be looking just at how the FISA wire taps were used against my client. I’d be asking why the FBI needed to lie to get a warrant to justify their completely bogus investigation that was devoid of evidence of “Russia collusion”. Without the “Russia collusion” investigations, none of these people would even have been interviewed by the FBI, let alone faced prosecution for lying. They might have been interviewed by the FBI about FARA or some other thing, but that would have been separate from the Russia collusion investigation. In fact, Manafort had been looked at by DOJ before, and legitimately.

          But once the bogus investigation got going, and that bogus investigation required illegal search warrants, everything that followed was in service to that fraud. Therefore all the prosecutions should be thrown out.

      If all the paperwork is submitted on time, and nobody asks for a delay, then the schedule holds. Since DOJ submitted a revised sentencing recommendation – leaving it up to the judge – then the judge can move forward. What will be interesting is whether she, being a hard-core partisan Obama judge (yes Chief Justice Roberts, there are Obama judges), will give the quitter US Attorneys what they wanted…7-9 years. Or, if she will also recognize that absurdity and give him 30 days and probation or whatever less.

      I wouldn’t put it past the judge to follow through on what those Mueller attorneys originally submitted.

      What — if anything — has Jackson done with Stone’s latest motion for a new trial (the one based on the latest evidence of the outrageous bias of the jury foreperson)?

      She needs to address this before sentencing.

      If she denies the motion, pronounces sentence, and refuses to stay her sentencing order pending appeal, I think she may be get a very rare interim rebuke by a DC Circuit panel, overturning her stay order.

  25. Funny–I don’t recall an Emergency Meeting of Judges when Obama insulted the captive Justices at State of the Union Addresses.

    There have probably been two million DOJ employees in the last few decades. I’m not surprised the Empress was able to summon two thousand of her Flying Monkey Mouthpieces to throw chaff and countermeasures.

    No open letter when Loretta Lynch met with the Clinton Crime Family on the Tarmac.

    What is sad is that what is happening today was relegated to the spy thriller movies of the past. For those who remember the Will Smith movie Enemy of the State, the full spy apparatus of the US Government was turned against one man. While all great stories have a grain of truth to them, it seems that there is more truth than fiction in today’s story

    I’m glad that Barr is using outside the beltway attorneys to get to the bottom of all this. Whether he is actually doing good or is being “bondo Barr” remains to be seen.
    My personal take on Barr is that while he is for justice and truth, he is also for the institutions that he controls. He wants the right thing as long as it doesn’t burn down the institutions he cherishes. I get where he is coming from and he is a bit more loving of those institutions than I am. (I’m ready for it all to come out, damn the torpedoes). Barr is finding a way to punish the guilty without punishing the institutions. The only way that happens is if he gets a compliant media. I don’t see the media working with Barr unless the dems tell them to.

    The deep state is getting nervous because Barr is getting closer. I’m certain Barr doesn’t like VSGPDJT tweeting about the unfair nature of what the DOJ has been doing because it keeps Barr from making a deal with the swamp to trade low level crooks and keeps the big fish out of trouble. I don’t want a deal, I want justice to prevail. The guilty should be charged and punished. The innocent should be made whole again.

    Hannity has tick tock in full swing. While I believe Hannity has the best intentions at heart, I feel he is trying to get an outcome by proclaiming the tick tock. Those in the driver seats (not you, I or Hannity) will work at their own pace in their own ways. The only person keeping DOJ honest is VSGPDJT.

    Mr. President, keep the pressure up and maybe one day, one of Hannity’s tick tocks will actually ring true. Hannity will be more surprised by that then any of us :).

    Excerpt:

    The Justice Department has tapped two U.S. attorneys to review records and documents related to Ukraine, a department official wrote Tuesday in a letter to Congress.

    Richard Donoghue, the U.S. attorney in Brooklyn, has been tasked to review all Ukraine materials that have been turned over to the Justice Department. Meanwhile, Scott Brady, the U.S. attorney in Pittsburgh, is assisting that review by conducting a preliminary analysis of new information related to Ukraine.

    Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd revealed the federal prosecutors’ role in a letter to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, New York Democrat. He said both men had been selected by Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen.

    “The deputy attorney general implemented this policy to avoid duplication of efforts across Department Offices and complements, to facilitate information sharing, to ensure there are no conflicts among potentially overlapping matters, and to efficiently marshal the resources of the department,” Mr. Boyd wrote.

    Can we just zero in on the letter from PT’s Attorney dated Dec 2017 titled Unauthorized Review of Private, Privileged Materials by the Special Counsel’s Office.

    To me this is huge and either I have missed this for 2+ years and just never put it together.

    Questions for Sundance:

    1) Since this letter references government statues and if the gathering of PT transition team’s information happened as stated, isn’t this a crime?

    2) Isn’t this pretty black and white and easy for someone like Durham to validate if the GSA folks were snookered or not?

    3) And also if #1 is true doesn’t this show unequivocally clear intent to get PT and his team from the get go?

    4) And if so, isn’t anything gathered and used from this illegal capture of information more fruit of the poisonous tree?

    5) And for Sidney Powell, was there ANYTHING that was gathered from the GSA folks and given to the Mueller team about PT’s team that contained information about Gen. Flynn?

    5) And if this was out back in Dec 2017 where both key Republicans and Democrats in Congress knew then clearly Sessions had to know as well and what did he do about this?

    6) So clearly Barr has been aware of this document since Feb of 2019 and now doesn’t this give him, Durham and us two examples of the DS plotting to damage the President via this unauthorized release of transition team personal information and the known Fake Dossier used in the FISA to spy on a sitting President?

    I hope we can get a specific thread on the implications of this letter tied together with the known bogus FISA requests and is that enough to see that this was ALWAYS IMO a SEDITIOUS CONSPIRACY to “cripple a duly elected government” and sitting President to use Barr’s quote?

  36. Okay gang, I need a little enlightenment here because my brain matter has become somewhere between over easy and scrambled reading SD’s post.

    I’m, trying to interpret his comments:

    “Sequestering the evidence is essentially a search for what investigative material the FISA warrants were used to obtain.”
    “In late January the DOJ contacted the FISA court and asked for an extension to the deadline.” “The response from the DOJ has not yet been declassified or released by the FISC for public review.
    And “……..AG Barr using “outside prosecutors” to review current, former and ongoing cases, it simply makes sense this ‘outsider’ effort is part of the DOJ/FBI sequestration review.”

    In my simple mind, it looks like:

    1. AG Barr is COMPLYING with the FISA request.
    2. Declassifying the material MIGHT inhibit a “real” investigation like Durham’s.
    3. AG Barr is using out-of-town prosecutors to keep the dishonest local Deep Staters out it.
    4. AG Barr may really be on “our” side but is playing it safe and by-the-book.

    Am I on the right track or should I head to the gin mill and continue frying my brain cells?

    • Bill Barr was granted selective declassification authority, not to make the materials public, but to allow him to present it to a Grand Jury composed of people who don’t have high-grade security clearances.

      These materials are criminal evidence which must remain secret from the general public. You also will, by law, hear absolutely nothing about “grand juries.” You also will not hear Barr nor Durham nor any other professional “leaking” anything at all. These materials and others must be used to prepare cases that are absolutely airtight and bulletproof, because they will be relentlessly attacked by the highest-paid defense lawyers in the world.

    I can’t believe there were only two FISA warrants that were in question here – I believe there to be many more. But as Sundance has related, other investigations were initiated elsewhere in the Federal court system, in many districts, employing information ultimately surfaced through the use of those original improperly obtained FISA warrants. There may be as many as ten or twelve “generations” of cases involved here. Each of them can trace its origins back to those improperly-obtained FISA warrants, courtesy of the out-of-control FBI and the US Attorneys operating in conjunction with it – and then that criminally-flawed, cowardly “fork in the road” decision. If that be the case, each of those individual investigations and, perhaps, ongoing cases now has to be reviewed by an experienced senior US attorney to determine if it can be salvaged in some manner. All I know from 23 years in LE is the “fruit of the poisonous tree” doctrine is inviolate and every prosecutor and case agent who takes a case to court that is a spin-off of a case started somewhere else prays the guys who started this whole thing knew what they were doing when they initiated the “originating case,” the granddaddy of them all. If that originating case has a flaw or, worse, a deliberate falsehood in it and it’s discovered either during the discovery phase, or upon post-trial appeal, that’s going to positively raise doubts about EVERY spin-off of the original case. A slick defense attorney is going to make hay with that. A lot of acquittals could be coming down the pike.

    More importantly than the lost cases, again as Sundance states, is the perception this reinforces of a secondary justice system at work in this country where rules of evidence and courtroom procedure are ignored if the target of prosecution is out of favor with those who manipulate that judicial system for hidden purposes. It’s been suspected for a long time. For years the obviously-guilty in Congress and elsewhere escaped just punishment. Then Hillary started her series of screw-ups and was given a pass on things that others are now looking at jail time for. Now it’s no longer a tin-foil-hat conspiracy theory but increasingly visible for everyone to see. Certainly President Trump is well aware of it – he’s been the victim of it as well. Now his AG is trying to sort through it. It would be foolhardy in the extreme for Mr. Barr to think we the thinking conservative, Constitution-respecting and abiding electorate are in ignorance of what has happened or can not figure this out for ourselves. We are a great deal smarter than our opponents give us credit for being.

    It is an externally-directed power grab for the reins of government occurring in our country as we watch in real time.

    To be fair Mr. Barr has just started his inquiries and has some assistance in the form of a number of experienced senior US attorneys who have fanned out to review a number of cases in various federal judicial districts. No doubt they are looking at the evidence obtained through tainted warrants and prosecutions arising therefrom – all flowing from that “deep state” motivated fork-in-the-road decision. He and his should be given reasonable time to assess what’s going on.

    That being said – it’s never easy to explain when a US attorney’s office has an improperly conducted, incompetent prosecution occur or worse, a malicious one. It’s going to be downright damning for the entire DOJ when potentially dozens of them are discovered, widely scattered. It goes beyond honest error. It becomes obvious it was deliberately done, and was a conspiracy. And those have to be directed from somewhere.

    Who knows – the release of the Durham report may even take a back seat to this.

    Lisa Page celebrating, McCabe playing the victim instead of being viewed as the criminal he is, over 2,000 Signatures from DOJ employees or prior ones these are all blatant, in your face warnings to Trump and the few that want justice that “you can’t touch us!”
    That’s how I view this.
    Lisa Page if she had any pride, integrity, sense of responsibility when given the opportunity to work for the FBI would not be sending out smiling posts, practically bragging about how she conducted herself. Gee Lisa any women that aspires to work for the FBI currently you are the most infamous women to come to mind. That stinks!!!! Monica Lewinsky is a much better example of when faced with adversity how to ultimately conduct oneself.
    It’s so much more difficult for females to be taken seriously in traditional male institutions and Page and Hillary certainly have not helped playing the poor me female victim card.
    Comey, Brennan, Rosenstien, ect. they can all choose how they want to be perceived. Victim, patriot (had to do it since Trump was a threat as president), deer in the headlights (what I didn’t do anything wrong).
    Typical, government agencies not getting any work done. I started laughing as I read Sundance and the subsequent above remarks.
    Think about it, all these corrupt intelligence agencies, decades breaking the law was business as usual.
    Now in order to investigate the investigations and the investigations ability to investigate (FISA abuse) it will take multiple special investigations whose integrity will then be questioned as well. Which means they may need to be investigated subsequently. Hahaha, come on, forget it!!!
    That ship sailed when the initial corruption started on a small scale it was only going to get worse. Technology made it easier, more tempting, more lucrative, and it literally defines our intelligence agencies.
    it’s not like one of the Intelligence branches has stayed above the corruption. The reason is obvious, this is how they all operate. It appears under Obama they all got sloppier more open about the pay to play and spying on Obamas adversaries.
    Hillary was a supposed, sure win, so they all became downright brazen (Biden bragging about threatening to withhold funding in Ukraine for example). Look at Bidens income, it didn’t go way up until the last year or so of the Obama administration.
    Obama and Biden cashed out.
    Hillary sobbed telling Obama she was so sorry she lost is the story. I bet she did.
    Hillary knew all the loose ends that were out there that would be impossible to cover up since she wasn’t going to the White House after all.
    Barr was brought in to protect Trump from getting kicked out of the White House. Barr was able too reel in the out of control swamp faction that wants Trump out, but, it cost Trump.
    Question is does tge dueling swamp faction want to give Trump another four years.
    I am not so sure that’s even been decided. What will it cost Trump to serve another four years.
    Just look at what Obama posted about it was all his doing that the economy is booming.
    So now that’s what all MSM will be talking about the left will now take credit for that.
    No the public knows better, but it’s my belief it’s the democrats way of explaining that’s how Trump lost in 2020, when they cheat their way (voter fraud, you saw Iowa, providing IDs to illegals, prisoners now voting) into Bloomberg and Hillary winning.

    Page supposedly led to Flynn, Manafort, Stone, and maybe a couple others. People would be outraged if a single fraudulently obtained FISA resulted in 40-50-70 or more other people being looked at because they may have been connected to a person who was connected to a person who was connected to Page.

    If FISA 3 and 4 were illegal, at a time when they should have had much better evidence, that would suggest FISA’s 1 and 2 were even weaker.

    Exactly how many people were affected by this sham? The answer to that being more than one person should be infuriating.

On the prosecutor assignments, Dems / NYT ignoring the FISC order means that they can only position this as Barr doing what PDJT wants. What better forum could there be to state that the FISC, not PDJT, ordered it?

    I thought Barr had turned on PDJT when McCabe walked. Now, I think I was wrong. Instead of focusing on every prosecution, destroy the common foundation. Every prosecution stemming from the Russia collusion hoax will be suspect & reviewed for legitimacy. Correct the wrongs, then target the wrongdoers. Barr may yet prove to be brilliant!

    I was somewhat concerned to learn that the “outside prosecutor” assigned to review LTG. Flynn’s case is named Jeff Jensen.

    In 2005, Andrew Weissmann was confronted for egregious prosecutorial misconduct related to the infamous Enron case. One of the abuses was witness tampering, or intimidating defense witnesses.

    One of the “FBI agents” (according to the affidavit) involved in the witness intimidation was named Jeff Jensen. Is it possible this “FBI agent” and the current U.S. Attorney in St. Louis simply share the same name?

    Margot Cleveland over at The Federalist wrote a piece in March 2019 which outlines Weissmann’s conduct in the Enron case, and also lists Jeff Jensen as an FBI agent/Prosecutor involved in the witness intimidation. IF this is the very same Jeff Jensen, the revelation is troubling to say the least.
