AG Sessions reveals
´a person outside of Washington´
already has been appointed to
investigate FISA abuses

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 3/8/2018 9:19:52 AM

Is Attorney General Jeff Sessions really standing in the way of a full investigation of wrongdoing by the FBI and Justice Department officials, abusing their offices to spy on the Trump campaign and presidency? (snip) Sessions has antagonized many conservatives, many of whom expect him to be fired by President Trump or else are outright demanding said firing. Last night, in an exclusive interview with Shannon Bream of Fox News, Sessions revealed that he already has appointed someone to investigate the allegations coming from the chairmen of the House Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform Committees, Bob Goodlatte and Trey Gowdy,

Oh plllllease! Is the someone he has appointed his wife? Or might it be another close friend to Rosenstein and Mueller?!?!
Anything this man has to say never amounts to more than piffle!

BTW, it would help to clear the hemorrhoids of the vocal cords!

By Chavis´ statement this morning on Fox he didn´t appear to be impressed with Sessions. Sessions is the biggest disappointment in the Trump administration.

From the Sundance article posted earlier today:

“All of the news and information coming forward, including the lack of follow-up attention by the Democrats regarding the minority HPSCI memo, aligns with a very specific set of facts. Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, James Baker, Bill Priestap, Bruce Ohr and likely Nellie Ohr, have cut some kind of deal with the outside prosecutor for process leniency in exchange for cooperation with the IG and DOJ prosecutor.”

The apparent reason for not firing the Ignominious Five + Mrs Ohr is to allow the IG to question them in order to develop a criminal case against their superiors. IG can only question current employees of DoJ & FBI. Now we need indictments and not retirement parties.

I fully understand the need for prosecutorial discretion. I absolutely understand the reason for playing coy in the light of recent accusations and public disclosures of inner governmental mis-deeds. But, for The Attorney General of the United States to publicly declare there is a top secret investigative body winding its way through our nation, secretly seeking evidence against people, in government or out, that´s crap, folks! That is so like the old USSR or Nazi Germany, it is actually frightening to me. How dare Sessions make this claim, true or not. If Sessions has set forth an investigative team seeking to resolve these specific crimes, let him declare it openly, If he can not be so compelled, then he needs to keep his stupid, do nothing mouth shut! This is America- we do not have secret police. We have a system of laws and a GD Constitution!

From the CTH article linked above (which should be read by all who are interested in this matter):

The OIG is a division inside the Department of Justice. During an internal investigation if the IG becomes aware of unlawful activity he/she is obligated to inform the AG (Sessions) or AAG (Rosenstein). He can’t ignore it and he cannot delay notification of it. Unlawful activity must be reported.

The IG does not have legal or prosecutorial authority – the IG must immediately refer unlawful activity to the proper authority; essentially to his boss. A DOJ prosecutor is then assigned to work with the IG (as Jeff Sessions confirmed today) and essentially creates a parallel investigation focused only on the law-breaking part.

[That prosecutor could, likely would, then begin a Grand Jury proceeding; and no-one outside the AG, AAG, and the ‘outside’ prosecutor’s office would know.]

The CTH article also explains (among other things) why we haven’t seen committee hearing testimony from the “fab-five) (Strzok, Page, Priest, Baker, Ohr). They are cooperating, but away from the committee and its leakers.

Do go and read it.

Lifson is correct on this, and it is starting to unfold as I and a number of others, and prominently, Mr. Lifson have estimated that it would.

In other words, as many, including Mr. Lifson have suggested is likely the case, there is a whole lot going on below the radar of the Enemedia and the general public.

A whole lot of good things, I will bet. Not everything is best done in full public view, especially these days with the Enemedia essentially a co-conspirator with the enemies of our country. The less the Enemedia knows, the less it can interfer with the process of nailing this criminals to the wall, carefully and in a way that they cannot escape. And without any of them being aware of it until they are called into a grand jury room or indicted.

FTA ~"Hasty or reckless action could lead to failure to convict or an overturned guilty verdict, if any procedural errors take place."

Egggsactly! No need going off half - you know what on any of this. What would happen? All or most would skate. Sundance at Conservative Treehouse is correct. The IG has his limitations, but he has to report immediately any wrongdoing he uncovers AS HE finds it! How else do you think we know of the love birds texts! Why are they still under government payroll? Sitting in nothing jobs? They flipped and are cooperating. There are also direct quotes from others that were in the Nunes memo, not from any testimony to Congress.

The stage is getting set. I believe a grand jury is already empaneled and I would bet Congress is in the dark on most of this because of all the leaking going on by Schifforbrains, they can´t be told any of it!

A quick look at Michael Cohen´s judge

"Judge hands defeat to Trump and Cohen," blares the headline. Kimba Wood...Kimba Wood...where have I heard that name before? Well, look at this. She was Bill Clinton´s second choice to be attorney general, after the Zoe Baird nomination blew up. Kimba´s blew up, too, because she forgot to tell the White House she had employed an illegal as a nanny. Is this amazingly great luck for the Mueller-U.S. attorney tag team or what? But don´t be downhearted. Judge Wood has it all doped out: "I have faith in the Southern District U.S. Attorney´s office that their integrity is unimpeachable," Judge Wood said. Remember

I restrained myself from commenting on the suicide to protest global warming of “famed gay rights lawyer” David Buckel for the last two days because, quite frankly, my first reactions were inappropriate laughter at what must be regarded as a human tragedy. “What was the carbon footprint of dousing himself in flammables and releasing into the atmosphere all the carbon in a carbon-based life form?” was the first thought I had. But after all, this is a human being, so I hesitated to mock. After some reflection, I see that this is a tragedy the Greek sense of the word,

James Comey´s bid to throw former Attorney General Loretta Lynch under the bus isn´t going over well, at least with Lynch. According to a report in Axios, which includes a long blathering statement from Lynch: Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch released a statement on Sunday, saying that she and former FBI Director James Comey have known each other almost 30 years, and "he had ample opportunities to raise" any concerns he had over the Department of Justice´s investigation of Hillary Clinton´s emails, but "[h]e never did."

The day that James Comey cashed the multi-million dollar advance check from MacMillan Publishers will turn out to mark the date that we can call “Peak Comey.” It was all downhill from the instant the ink started drying on his signature on the back of the check. He and his ghost writer suddenly faced the unenviable task of making him look like the righteous warrior he had always portended to be, but with the need to fill 300 pages with something. Self-serving rationalizations can’t sustain reader interest over that many words, so apparently they decided that prose about physical appearances

Doubling down on House minority leader Nancy Pelosi´s mantra that the Trump tax cuts and corporate bonuses for individual workers are "pathetic" and mere "crumbs," presidential wannabe Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) blamed middle-class Americans keeping more of their money and corporations sharing more of their profits for driving up the debt: In a video with fellow Democratic Senators Chris Van Hollen and Tammy Baldwin, Booker slammed the Republican-led tax reform effort that cut taxes for a vast majority of Americans and led many businesses to give their employees one-time bonuses[.] ...

Advice to Trump: Make

American Thinker, by Bert Peterson    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 4/12/2018 9:16:16     Post Reply
If Special Counsel Robert Mueller believed he had actionable grounds to suspect Pres. Trump of some crime that Mueller was authorized to investigate, he should have raided Trump´s home and offices, not the offices of Trump´s attorney, Michael Cohen. When Mueller seized Cohen´s records, he was seizing privileged information between a lawyer and not only his one client, Donald Trump, but also such privileged information from Cohen and all his clients. Mueller was not only doing potentially serious damage to Cohen´s profession, but also violating a bedrock principle – client-attorney confidentiality – on which our legal system stands. When Pres.

Even at age 90, Helga Lustig vividly remembers when she first heard the news that her father had been taken away by the Nazis. (snip) Helga´s father certainly couldn´t fight back. A year before, they had come for his guns. Since he had been a German officer in the Kaiser´s army in the Great War, the Nazis assumed, erroneously, it turned out, that he had at least kept his sidearm. They relented on his traditional officer´s sword, reasoning that it was no match for bullets anyway. The Nazis had in their possession a national registry of gun-owners. When they came to

If there was any doubt that Robert Mueller’s Ahab-like goal is the unseating of President Trump at all costs and by any means, it was erased by the thuggish FBI raid he orchestrated on the home and office of Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen. (snip) Hillary’s attorney Cheryl Mills was given an immunity deal despite smashing up myriads of laptops and cell phones. Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen does nothing and has his home and office raided like he was Al Capone.

In the absence of any public statements from Robert Mueller’s team or the FBI or DOJ – just leaks to pet media outlets – we can only speculate as to the motives for a thermonuclear escalation of tactics being used against President Trump, in the effort to reverse the presidential election of 2016. (snip) Presdent Trump was negotiating conditions for his interview with the special counsel that were restrictive as to what could be asked. Perhaps Mueller determined that it was unlikley to be productive. This raid now virtually precludes such an interview being agreed to. This will enable Mueller

President Trump´s tactical moves are widely publicized by the media.

According to public records, David Brock’s Media Matters group has ignored important legal requirements for tax-exempt charities. Instead of reveling in the impact of his attacks against Laura Ingraham, David Brock and his team at Media Matters for America (MMFA) need to try complying with the strict laws that do regulate activities of publicly supported, tax-exempt organizations.
