DOJ Blows Past Deadline to Turn Over
Documents to Congress on Dossier

Townhall, by Katie Pavlich

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 1/2/2018 5:21:25 AM

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes is blasting the Department of Justice and FBI after officials ignored congressional subpoenas and blew threw a deadline to turn over documents related to the infamous Fusion GPS dossier. In a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Nunes points out that not only did DOJ mislead his Committee about the existense of documents, they also unlawfully failed to comply with congressional requests. "Several weeks ago, DOJ informed the Committee that the basic investigatory documents demanded by the subpoenas, FBI Form FD-302 interview summaries, did not exist. However, shortly before my meeting with you in early

Is Alleged Attorney General Sessions aware that he´s the head of the DOJ and needs to clean out his septic tank of an organization or has he just completely recused himself of everything except his paycheck?

I´m at the point I want Trump to have them arrested, investigated, and shoot the wrong doers for treason.

There´s gotta be someone in DOJ, FBI, or CIA that aren´t partisan hacks.

If not, martial law, clean em out and start over. Enough, already.

Holder was held in contempt with no consequences. Who will prosecute Rosenstein et al, the DOJ itself? It´s an empty gesture. Nothing will come of holding him in contempt. Fire him, POTUS.

Is what ever happened to our Republic so bad you can´t bring yourself to confront it? Then resign, Jeffery- make room for someone who can at lest tell us about it so we can prepare a future.

Congress has virtually no power to prosecute. They are an investigative body If-----? someone agrees to be investigated.

It´s time to indict and seat a plethora of grand juries. We have new judges and there are plenty of attorneys that would jump at the chance to prosecute!

I realize that 2017 was a long time ago, but I can still recall a fellow named Sessions taking an oath to enforce the laws of the federal government. Perhaps that was for his job as AG or possibly as head of ICE or the National Park Service. It was so long ago that I can´t remember who is Attorney General in the Trump Administration.

If readers can recall who, if anyone, replaced the stunningly partisan and corrupt Loretta Lynch as AG, please drop a note.

Has DC declared itself to be a Sanctuary City where crooked politicians go to commit high crimes and acts of treason? Certainly appears that way to the average American living under the thumb of a government so corrupted it cannot police itself. The natives out in the hinderlands are getting restless when they see no one held accountable for the criminality that is running rampant among the pampered political class. Please explain to us why we should continue to pay taxes to enable the corrupt to live the high life and enjoy fine pensions and health care. Our patience is being stretched to the breaking point.

It´s very dangerous to lay down a Red Line. If you´re going to do it, you better have a plan B for that Line being ignored or you look like a Fool! Nunes sent these subpoenas out in August. Jeesh! Here we are in January and NOW he wants them to set up dates for Interviews. How about giving them 24 hours! Submit those documents or you will be picked up and taken to JAIL until you produce them! Right now they´re making a Laughing Stock of Nunes! Nobody is afraid of him! He needs to do SOMETHING to prove he means business!!

Something has to start breaking loose soon on this, or I think Trump will weigh in even more with Sessions. I still for the life of me wonder why Sessions is not making Rosenstein give up the documents. Congress has the legal right to have them. Sessions doesnt have to be involved but he certainly has the obligation to force Rosenstein to follow the law!

Perhaps the rest of you were way ahead of me in reaching this conclusion but I think blackmail is at the root of much that otherwise doesn´t make sense. It seems that every glimmer of hope is extinguished from Chaffetz to Gowdy. Why does an entity such as Fusion GPS exist? How many such firms exist? And we also now know that if nothing of substance exists in an opponent´s background that´s a minor issue, something will be made up, paying for false accusations, false dossiers, you name it.

Now that The Holidays are over and President Trump has his winning legislation of Tax Reform signed and the ink has dried, It´s time to stir up the pot and move forward into 2018. We all know that he has no qualms about firing anyone. Therefore, there must be a strategy in place about Sessions. Let´s hope we find out something soon.

Desperately trying to cover up their crimes. Since the IG report will be out relatively soon, let them play games. They are toast anyway, and it makes them look guilty to be steadily obstructing the Congressional investigation.

He has uncovered a nefarious and widespread ring of forgers - - who have been slapping "Godiva" labels onto ordinary Hershey bars.

These bogus candies are being sold in bodegas and Korean delis - - and perhaps have even made their way into 7-Eleven distribution chain - - ripping off the unsuspecting who have a sweet tooth.

I have been wondering for ages-- and I would have thought basic journalism 101 would require newspeople to include this info in any story dealing with contempt of Congress--what the penalty is for such a designation. It appears that the maximum penalty is $1000 and 1 year in jail. Not much, but it´s a start-- when will Eric Holder be paying his fine and serving his sentence ?

#21- Quite likely many others share the suspicion of blackmail—blackmail using leverages such as threats of disclosing personal and/or family skeletons in the closet, and/or threats of future harm to anyone (including family members) daring to expose and/or adjudicate criminal charges. While holding office, there may be government protective services; however, upon departure, such protection may become an individual’s personal responsibility. President Trump is to be admired/respected for many reasons, not the least of which is his courage in exposing/standing up to criminal activity within the government. May God send His holy angels to surround/protect him and his family.

Since Congress is all kabuki theater, I think there are other reasons for not meeting these deadlines: 1) It wouldn´t amount to a hill of beans even if they DID, and 2) doing so would allow someone in Congress to alert the wrongdoers so they can CYA or fly the coop.

In other words, I think justice is coming from somewhere besides Congress, so why give Congress/the enemy the ammunition to fight back?

And I´m not on the bash-Sessions train for a number of reasons. Although Trump has expressed some disappointment with Sessions, what he has said is ambiguous. He´s never come out and said he wanted him gone. That leads me to look at Trump´s actions. His ACTIONS indicate that Sessions is doing exactly what Trump wants. Otherwise, Trump would have fired him (and all arguments saying he couldn´t are ridiculous, in my opinion).

And lastly, this is an all out war and the stakes for Trump are WAAAY to high for Trump to be dilly-dallying around with an unreliable Attorney General. You DO NOT leave an enemy in such an important position when yours and your family´s lives are at stake!!

#13, Congress has no power to arrest anyone. All they can do is threaten and bluster. If no one wants to participate, well.....?

#18, You´re correct an indictment and arrest is in the hands of the AG at this point. That´s what should happen.

As far as Sessions malingering, I´m with #31. It is my hope that a fail safe case on each count is being made and Sessions is just laying low until he can spring the trap. That is my hope

Imagine how long Holder or Lynch would have lasted if they were not ready to march through Hell with two 5 gal plastic gas cans for Obama.

Chivalry is not only dead but it is deadly.

Where is the politician who will stand up and say:"They came to me...threatened my children, killed my cat, threatened to ruin my career, promised to trash my reputation, leave me in poverty and reward me handsomely if only I would co-operate.......and their names are.....and I will not do it."

It will only take one.

Is ´can´t prove untrue´ new

Washington Examiner [DC], by Byron York    Original Article

When a political figure is accused of wrongdoing, a conversation begins among journalists, commentators, and public officials. Are the charges true? Can the accusers prove it? That´s the way it normally works. But now, in the case of the Trump dossier – the allegations compiled by a former British spy hired by the Clinton campaign to gather dirt on presidential candidate Donald Trump – the generally accepted standard of justice has been turned on its head. Now, the question is: Can the accused prove the charges false? Increasingly, the president´s critics argue that the dossier is legitimate because it has

Like Captain Ahab, Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller has spent eleven months frantically hunting a giant whale. So far, Mueller has harpooned a couple of cod and a few salmon. But these fish have yet to demonstrate that the huge, ocean-going mammal in question merits capture. And Mueller’s barely productive odyssey is an enormous embarrassment compared with the mass ichthyocide that was the Watergate investigation, even at the equivalent stage in that long, national nightmare. The FBI’s Russiagate inquiry “began in late July” 2016, as its former director, James Comey, told the House Intelligence Committee on March 20, 2017. The intervening

The Trump administration is seeking the dismissal of a suit alleging the nonprofit helmed by former president Jimmy Carter has used taxpayer funding to provide material support to international terrorist groups, including Hamas. The Zionist Advocacy Center, which filed the recently unsealed suit in 2015, alleges the Carter Center received more than $30 million in taxpayer grants while violating federal statutes barring it from using the cash to provide material support to terror groups.

During the 2016 presidential race, we often heard about “dysfunction” within the Trump campaign. Indeed, this was a theme of mainstream media coverage. The Clinton campaign, by contrast, was portrayed as a smooth, if uninspiring, operation. Only after the election did we begin to learn about discord and dysfunction in Hillaryland. Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign, by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes provided details. Along, now, comes Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns, and One Intact Glass Ceiling by Amy Chozick, who covered the Clinton campaign for the New York Times.

When Alexander Hamilton wrote of the judiciary, in Federalist 78, he called it the “least dangerous branch.” It lacks the executive power of the sword and Congress’ power of the purse. It has only the faculty of judgment, and must depend on the executive to enforce its judgments. But what if the judges mistrust the executive, and announce that his orders be ignored? In that case the entire system of separation of powers might be undone, in matters purely political. The judiciary will have usurped the executive power and made little presidents of themselves.

Mick Mulvaney quietly changes the CFPB´s name

Mick Mulvaney is making sweeping changes to the consumer agency he temporarily leads, including its name. The symbolic tweak has been overlooked as Mulvaney has pursued numerous other, more concrete changes, such as delaying a major new federal regulation of payday lending. Yet, it’s an example of the Trump appointee’s talent for pleasing Republicans and ticking off liberals every chance he gets. From the time its doors opened in 2011, the agency was known as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Usually, people just called it “the CFPB.” Yet those terms, which adorn the agency’s headquarters, make up its website URL, and are used

Sen. Mike Lee has been fighting against the renomination of Chai Feldblum as EEOC Commissioner. Feldblum is the architect of President Obama’s radical LBGT agenda. She believes, among other things, that when religious liberty and sexual liberty conflict, sexual liberty should prevail in virtually all cases. The confirmation of Feldblum looked like a done deal in December. However, key social conservative groups sounded the alarm, and Sen. Lee placed a hold on Feldblum’s nomination. It is stalled. Now, however, I’m hearing (but haven’t been able to confirm) that a push is under way to steer Feldblum’s nomination through the Senate this week.

A man who was once the highest-ranking uniformed officer in the NYPD avoided charges in a corruption scandal that rocked the department — even though his bank records revealed some $300,000 in transactions that the FBI called the hallmarks of “money laundering,” The Post has learned. The feds’ investigation turned up surveillance photos that show former Chief of Department Philip Banks making some of the deposits, while other photos show “at least one other person, whom the FBI has not been able to identify, making deposits into these accounts,” according to a sworn affidavit filed in Manhattan federal court.

President Trump promised to reverse the Obama era’s progressive economic policies and free American capitalism to do what it does best: increase prosperity for all. And, sure enough, that’s exactly what happened. Buoyed with optimism as taxes were cut and anti-business regulations eliminated, businesses invested, GDP growth climbed to a 3.1 percent average for Trump’s first three full quarters in office and the unemployment rate declined to a low last seen during President Clinton’s final year in office. To avoid slipping back into the economic doldrums we experienced under President Obama –- which, incidentally, offer a look at the alternate reality we

Here’s an inconvenient truth about a self-described co-founder of Earth Day: he murdered and composted his girlfriend. Environmental activist and self-proclaimed Earth Day co-founder Ira Einhorn had a dark side. Einhorn was found guilty of murdering his ex-girlfriend and stuffing her “composted” body inside a trunk, NBC News reported in 2011. After five years of being together, Helen Maddux broke up with Einhorn. Enraged, he threatened to throw Maddux’s belongings onto the street if she didn’t come by to get them. She went to Einhorn’s apartment to retrieve them on Sept. 9, 1977, but was never seen again. Maddux went missing after going

Perhaps the most enduring puzzlement about Donald Trump the president and candidate is his ability, if that’s what it is, to attract a faithful political base founded on fervent evangelical Christians, despite his frequently reinforced reputation for less than righteous acts and statements. During the 2015-16 campaign, each emerging example of Trump misbehavior, from off-color references to women and allegations of affairs, convinced Eastern elites and media to believe the billionaire’s upstart political rebellion was doomed any day. [Snip] Among allegedly conservative Republicans, Trump approval has climbed into the mid-80 percent range. All this despite continued stormy allegations by a

WASHINGTON – Former Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.) urged Congress not to legalize marijuana, breaking with other members of his party such as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.). Schumer announced today for the 4/20 cannabis holiday his plan to decriminalize marijuana at the federal level, writing that he had evolved on the issue along with the electorate. Kennedy argued lawmakers should oppose legalization of marijuana, in part because it would worsen the crisis of addiction in America. “The biggest issue here is denial in our lives, those of us who come from homes with alcoholism and addiction, who live with it in our

NEW YORK — Hillary Clinton excoriated President Donald Trump for his treatment of the media, saying in remarks on Sunday that press rights and free speech are “under open assault” in the current administration, which she compared to an authoritarian regime. “We are living through an all-out war on truth, facts and reason,” Clinton said at the PEN America World Voices Festival, in Manhattan. “When leaders deny things we can see with our own eyes, like the size of a crowd at the inauguration, when they refuse to accept settled science when it comes to urgent challenges like climate change

YORK, Pa. -- One of five black women golfers who were told to leave a Pennsylvania club said Tuesday it felt like they were playing "with targets on our backs." Representatives of the Grandview Golf Club in York told the group at the second hole they were playing too slowly Saturday, said Sandra Harrison. After the ninth hole, an hour-and-a-half later, the group of white men told them they took too long a break and needed to leave. Harrison said she and two other women left because they were so rattled by the treatment. "It was like we were playing

Planned Parenthood is once again proving its hunger for powerful allies in government positions. GOP control of the Senate is narrow, and with the upcoming Senate races, the power balance could tip in favor of Democrat, pro-abortion advocates. Planned Parenthood knows this, of course, and will be pouring a reported $30 million into abortion advocacy through its political arm. This money will be spent on Senate and gubernatorial races in a number of states, including Arizona, Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, and will be used to fund TV and digital ads, direct-mail campaigns, and even advocacy in the public square.

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman Bob Corker (R-TN) said President Donald Trump could not “charm” North Korea’s Kim Jong-un into giving up its nuclear weapons. (Snip) SENATOR BOB CORKER: Look, I’m glad they’re meeting. I think all of us look at this with great caution and skepticism. This has been going on for 25 years and obviously Kim Jong-un has learned about public relations (ph) and is setting it up well for him. But I think everyone that’s been around this looks at this as just the beginning. It may lead to something, may not. Let’s
