Behind The IG Report — How The Obama
Justice Department Tried To Shut Down The FBI’s
Investigation Into The Clinton Foundation

Daily Caller, by Richard Pollock

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 4/16/2018 5:01:11 AM

The Department of Justice Inspector General report on the “lack of candor” by FBI deputy Director Andrew McCabe also documents for the first time the Obama administration’s effort to shut down the bureau’s investigation of the Clinton Foundation, according to a review of the report by The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group. The inspector general (IG) confirmed in its long-awaited report released Friday that in 2016 the FBI had ongoing field investigations of the Clinton Foundation in New York, Los Angeles, Little Rock, Arkansas and Washington, D.C. The multi-city investigation was launched when agents found “suspicious activity” between a

Actually it looks like Lynch did shut down the NYC Police Dept investigation into Weiner’s laptop, where NYPD found 350,000 of Hillary’s emails, evidence Hillary went to the sex island six times, and Bill 2, etc etc - see Conservative Treehouse article today on this.

There is an ongoing investigation of Trump no evidence there has been a crime. There is abundant evidence of influence peddling by Hilary to benefit the Clinton Foundstion. It now would be easy to prove the case. If any of the donors foreign or domestic would step forward and give details of their quid pro quo, what they bought with what they donated that would do it. I suspect there might be several willing cooperating witnesses. The present government of Saudi Arabia might be one. The Saudis donated millions.

It seems the Obama DOJ "did" shut down the investigations, not "tried" and failed.

I am wondering if McCabe is spilling everything he knows about this to the IG in an effort to save his hide. He is deeply implicated in all of this but there are bigger coordinators further up the chain.

This is your basic groundhog day situation. Every day another truck load of excrement on the Obama administration and Hillary campaign is unloaded with no ramifications while the never ending quest for trump malfeasance continues with nary a spec of fly crap to show for it.

The common and safe terminology has long since been rendered useless and toothless, such as bias and double standard. This is a coup. It´s also high time for our neighbors who act as though this is business as usual, just politics, to wake up. To my democrat friends I say you are free to believe as you wish but you either support the coup or you do not. Stop pretending we are “one nation” while the legally constructed nation is being deconstructed. Again feel free to declare your support for fundamental transformation, just don’t pretend that this is a legal process, honest process, anything other than hostile coup.

All they had to do is wait for the Sessions Justice Department and he would have shut it down for them !!

My thoughts are that most in the past administration are very aware of what is coming with the IG reports, and exactly what the implications will be for them legally.

The most that they can do now, with the help of their pals in the MSM is to try to find anything on Trump to even up the sides. Like apples and basketballs. Law is the law... and Comey doesn´t get to decide who is right and wrong. He is an investigator.. the head of the FB Investagation... no one appointed him to the bench and sadly for him, never will.

Comey is trying very hard to make it personal between himself and President Trump. It´s a common tactic when prosecution seems unavoidable, to make it look like the prosecution is personal instead of for cause. It is hoped that public opinion will sway prosecutors and judges.

I think it is too late and there is too much information that has been uncovered. Comey and the rest of the democrat operatives were a little sloppy because (of course) they thought Hillary would win.

See also the article by Conservative Treehouse below. Loretta Lynch obstructed Justice by quashing the Clinton Foundation Investigation with threats of transferring the Eric Garner racial investigation to SDNY AG like-minded Preet Baharata. The call was not about the gentle giant Eric Gardner, it was obstruction of justice for the Clinton Foundation less than a month before the presidential election. Loretta and McCabe should be in jail.

During President Trump’s summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Associated Press reporter Jonathan Lemire asked him about Russian interference in the 2016 election. Trump — as he has done many times before — responded with an answer that cast doubt on the U.S. intelligence agencies’ assessment of massive Russian election-interference. Here’s the exchange: LEMIRE: “Just now, President Putin denied having anything to do with the election interference in 2016. Every U.S. intelligence agency has concluded that Russia did … who do you believe?” TRUMP: “So let me just say that we have two thoughts. You have groups that

A private inspector said Saturday that he warned the company operating duck boats on a Missouri lake about design flaws putting the watercraft at greater risk of sinking, less than a year before the accident that killed 17 people during a sudden storm. Steve Paul, owner of the Test Drive Technologies inspection service in the St. Louis area, said he issued a written report for the company in August 2017. It explained why the boats´ engines — and pumps that remove water from their hulls — might fail in inclement weather. He also told The Associated Press that the tourist boats´ canopies

WASHINGTON, D.C -- The economy is Americans´ top response when asked to name the "most important thing going well" in the U.S. today, showing the flip side of Gallup´s list of the "most important problems" facing the nation. Economic factors are cited by 37% of Americans as what is going most well. The social climate, including social awareness, civic activism and the "resistance" movement, is the next-largest category of responses, at 17%, followed by the 12% saying "nothing" or "not much" is going well.Economy Tops Americans´ List of What´s Right in the U.S. What do you think is the most

Since 2012, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been holed up in the Ecuadoran embassy in London trying to evade a warrant for his arrest from the Swedish government on sexual assault charges. The Ecuadorans granted him asylum because he said he feared being handed over to the American government for exposing millions of classified documents. Apparently, Assange has overstayed his welcome. According to The Intercept, the new Ecuadoran president, Lenin Moreno, is prepared to transfer custody of Assange to the British. A source close to the Ecuadorian Foreign Ministry and the President’s office, unauthorized to speak publicly, has confirmed to the Intercept

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told senior Republicans that he will schedule Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote on a date just before the November elections if Democrats demand access to the full scope of records the judge produced in the George W. Bush administration. Democrats are leveraging the access dispute to slow Kavanaugh’s nomination, as it is one of the few mechanisms they have to delay progress on the appointment. Politico reports that McConnell believes scheduling a confirmation vote in immediate proximity to the midterm elections will exacerbate political pressure on embattled Democrats from red states to support Kavanaugh. “To

Pearl Harbor. Kristallnacht. Treason. High crimes and misdemeanors. These are some of the hyperventilating left’s overheated and ludicrous characterizations of President Trump’s remarks at his Helsinki press conference with Vladimir Putin. Listening to the Democrats and their wholly owned media subsidiary, you would have thought that Trump had (a) smilingly handed Putin a large red “reset” button or (b) had been caught on a hot mic during a global nuclear security summit murmuring to Putin’s representative that, after the midterm elections, he would have more flexibility in his dealings with Russia or (c) had signed off on a deal to give

For many donors, Help the Vets sounded like a great cause: The group said contributions would benefit disabled veterans by helping pay for medical care, assist with suicide prevention, even fund family retreats. As it turned out, however, Help the Vets was a “sham charity” that primarily benefited its founder and president, Neil G. “Paul” Paulson, who raised $11 million over three years by misleading soft-hearted contributors, according to a complaint filed Wednesday by federal and state authorities. Fed up with charitable scams that exploit public sympathy for veterans, the Federal Trade Commission struck back Thursday by unveiling Operation Donate

In the past few days, President Trump has given at least some Republicans reason to express displeasure over his relationship with Russia. First he performed a pathetic ritual of subservience before Vladimir Putin, standing beside the Russian leader — after a private meeting between the two, which no aides were permitted to attend — and dismissing the copious evidence of a Russian attack on the 2016 election in deference to Putin’s word. Then we learned that Putin had suggested that we make Americans available to the Kremlin for questioning, including Michael McFaul, the former U.S. ambassador to Russia, in exchange

A Georgia police department is in hot water over the purchase of a Hellcat muscle car. Fox 5 reports that the U.S. Department of Justice has asked the Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office to pay back $69,258 that it received from a federal program that distributes seized drug money to law enforcement agencies, which was used to buy the 707 hp Dodge Charger Hellcat in May.

At a recent speech in South Africa, former President Barack Obama criticized wealth inequality, saying those who have more money should share their earnings with the less fortunate. “Right now, I’m actually surprised by how much money I got,” Obama said of the more than $20 million he earned between 2005 and 2016. Obama then chided wealthy individuals for excess, saying, “There’s only so much you can eat. There’s only so big a house you can have. There’s only so many nice trips you can take. I mean, it’s enough.” “We’re going to have to worry about economics if we want to get

Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, the reported FBI lovebirds, are the poster children for the next “Don’t Text and Investigate” public service ads airing soon at an FBI office near you. Their extraordinary texting affair on their government phones has given the FBI a black eye, laying bare a raw political bias brought into the workplace that agents are supposed to check at the door when they strap on their guns and badges. It is no longer in dispute that they held animus for Donald Trump, who was a subject of their Russia probe, or that they openly discussed using the powers

President Trump’s longtime lawyer, Michael D.

The Justice Department is investigating Mr. Cohen’s involvement in paying women to tamp down embarrassing news stories about Mr. Trump ahead of the 2016 election.

The federal government owns 640 million acres in the U.S., or roughly 28 percent of the nation’s entire landmass. The BLM manages 248.3 million acres of public land, more than any other agency, according to a March 2017 report by the Congressional Research Service.

CLEARWATER — Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri announced Friday that his agency will not arrest a man deputies say shot and killed another man during an argument over a handicap parking space. The incident falls under Florida’s self-defense law known as "stand your ground," the sheriff said during a news conference. The law gives immunity to those in fear of their lives who use force to defend themselves. The shooting "is within the bookends of ‘stand your ground’ and within the bookends of force being justified," the sheriff said, later adding, "I’m not saying I agree with it, but I don’t make

Before the word "resignation" became a euphemism for being fired, it connoted a sense of public integrity and personal honor. Attorney General Elliot Richardson and his deputy, William Ruckelshaus, showed both qualities when they resigned from the Nixon administration during the Saturday Night Massacre in 1973. Jimmy Carter’s secretary of state, Cyrus Vance, did likewise when he resigned during the Iran hostage crisis in 1980. Assuming Mike Pompeo and John Bolton still have their own senses intact, they, too, should resign following the epic disgrace of the U.S.-Russia summit inHelsinki on Monday. So should their senior staff. I don’t suggest

As many as 5.7 million noncitizens may have voted in the 2008 election, which put Barack Obama in the White House.

Last Friday, Maine Democrat Zak Ringelstein wasn’t ready to consider himself a formal member of the Democratic Socialists of America, even if he appreciated the organization’s values and endorsement in his bid to become a United States senator. Three days later, he told The Associated Press that was ready to become the only major-party Senate candidate in the nation to be a dues-paying democratic socialist. The swift evolution is latest evidence of a nationwide surge in the strength and popularity of an organization that, until recently, operated on the fringes of the liberal movement’s farthest left flank.

President Donald Trump demanded on Friday that the ´$40,000,000 commissioner´ of the NFL suspend players for a whole season if they kneel during national anthem more than once. In a rehash of last year´s controversy, the President took to Twitter to blast NFL commissioner Roger Godell for not doing enough to stem the tide of players protesting racial inequality in America. ´The NFL National Anthem Debate is alive and well again - can´t believe it!,´ Trump wrote in the tweet. ´Isn´t it in contract that players must stand at attention, hand on heart? The $40,000,000 Commissioner must now make a stand.
