IG Report Released
COMPLETE WHITEWASH

Here. I'm going to start skimming. If you see anything good, quote it in the comments, if you would be so kind.







The whitewash is successful.

Long live the coup.

The AG Guidelines and the DIOG do not provide
heightened predication standards for sensitive matters,
or allegations potentia lly impacting constitutionally
protected activity, such as First Amendment rights.
Rather, the approval and notification requirements
contained in the AG Guidelines and the DIOG are, in
part, intended to provide t he means by which such
concerns can be considered by senior officials.
However, we were concerned to find that neither the AG
Guidelines nor the DIOG contain a provision requiring
Department consultation before opening an
investigation such as the one here involving the alleged
conduct of individuals associated with a major party
presidential campaign.

Crossfire Hurricane was opened as a Full
Investigation and all of the senior FBI officials who
participated in discussions about whether to open a
case told us the information warranted opening it. For
example, then Counterintel ligence Division (CD)
Assistant Director (AD) E.W. "Bill" Priestap, who
approved the case opening, told us that the
combination of t he FFG information and the FBI 's
ongoing cyber intrusion investigation of the July 2016
hacks of the Democratic Nat ional Committee's (DNC)
emails, created a count erintelligence concern that the
FBI was "obligated" to investigate. Priestap stated that
he considered whether the FBI should conduct
defensive briefings for the Trump campaign but
ultimately decided that providing such briefings created
the risk that "if someone on the campaign was engaged
with the Russians, he/she would very likely change
his/her tact ics and/or otherwise seek to cover-up
his/her activities, thereby preventing us from finding
the truth." We did not identify any Department or FBI
policy that applied to this decision and therefore
determined t hat the decision was a judgment call that
Department and FBI policy leaves to the discretion of
FBI officia ls. We also concluded that, under the AG
Guidelines and the DIOG, the FBI had an authorized
purpose when it opened Crossfire Hurricane to obtain
information about, or protect against, a national
security threat or federal crime, even though the
investigation also had the potential to impact
constitutionally protected activity.

Additionally, given the low threshold for
predication in the AG Guidelines and the DIOG..

"Predication" means "pretext," effectively. The rules provide for a very low standard -- almost a complete lack of standard -- for opening up an investigation into a Republican presidential candidate. They're saying that literally anything can constitute a "good faith" reason for suspicion.

Here, the "FFG" information means "Friendly Foreign Government" and refers to Alexander Downer's claim that Papadoplous said something about Russia having Hillary's emails.

...we concluded that the FFG information, provided by a
government the United States Intelligence Community
(USIC) deems trustworthy, and describing a first-hand
account from an FFG employee of a conversation with
Papadopoulos, was sufficient to predicate the
investigation. This information provided the FBI with an
articulable factual basis that, if true, reasonably
indicated activity constituting either a federal crime or a
t hreat to national security, or both, may have occurred
or may be occurring. For simi lar reasons, as we detail
in Chapter Three, we concluded that the quantum of
information articulated by the FBI to open t he individual
investigations on Papadopoulos, Page, Flynn, and
Manafort in August 2016 was sufficient to satisfy the
low threshold established by the Department and the
FBI.

Low threshold means "no threshold whatsoever."

Now we turn to the whitewashing of bias:


As part of our review, we also sought to
determine whether there was evidence that political
bias or other improper considerations affected decision
making in Crossfire Hurricane, including the decision to
open the investigation. We discussed t he issue of
political bias in a prior OIG report, Review of Various
Actions in Advance of the 2016 Election, where we
described text and instant messages between then
Special Counsel to the Deputy Director Lisa Page and
then Section Chief Peter Strzok, among others, that
included statements of hostility toward then candidate
Trump and statements of support for then candidate
Hillary Clinton. In this review, we found that, while Lisa
Page attended some of the discussions regarding the
opening of the investigations, she did not play a role in
the decision to open Crossfire Hurricane or the four
individual cases. We further found that while Strzok
was directly involved in the decisions to open Crossfire
Hurricane and the four individual cases, he was not the
sole, or even the highest-level, decision maker as to
any of those matters.
As noted above, then CD AD
Priestap, Strzok's supervisor, was the official who
ultimately made the decision to open the investigation,
and evidence reflected that this decision by Priestap
was reached by consensus after multiple days of
discussions and meetings that included Strzok and
other leadership in CD, the FBI Deputy Director, the FBI
General Counsel, and a FBI Deputy General Counsel.
We concluded that Priestap's exercise of discretion in
opening the investigation was in compliance with
Department and FBI policies, and we did not find
documentary or testimonial evidence that political bias
or improper motivation influenced his decision. We
similarly found that, while the formal documentation
opening each of the four individual investigations was
approved by Strzok (as required by the DIOG), the
decisions to do so were reached by a consensus among
the Crossfire "Hurricane agents
and analysts who
identified individuals associated with the Trump
campaign who had recently traveled to Russia or had
other alleged ties to Russia. Priestap was involved in
these decisions. We did not find documentary or
testimonial evidence that political bias or improper
motivation influenced the decisions to open the four
individual investigations.

Oh -- there was an Interagency Consensus.

I see.

The omissions -- the deliberate lies and actual fraud perpetrated upon the FISA court -- is "concerning," but none of the rats confessed to having been responsible for the lies, therefore there are no lies, or at least we're going to pretend them away:

We also found the quantity of omissions and inaccuracies in the applications
and the obvious errors in the Woods Procedures deeply concerning. Although we
did not find documentary or testimonial evidence of intentional misconduct on the
part of the case agents who assisted in preparing the applications, or the agents
and supervisors who performed the Woods Procedures, we also did not receive
satisfactory explanations for the errors or missing information....

Thanks to artisinal 'ette for that one.

Page xiv of the executive summary more or less says:

"That so many basic and fundamental errors
were made by three separate, hand- picked teams on one of the most sensitive FBI investigations that was briefed to the highest levels within the FBI, and that FBI officials expected would eventually be subjected to close scrutiny, raised significant questions regarding the FBI chain of command's management and supervision of the FISA process."

There's more but all that's being done? A fucking audit.

That via alexthechick.

112 Good news tho, they're initiating an audit of FISA! So what?

"In our view, this was a failure of not only the operational team, but also of the managers and supervisors, including senior officials, in the chain of command. For these reasons, we recommend that the FBI review the performance of the employees who had responsibility for the preparation, Woods review, or approval of the FISA applications, as well as the managers and supervisors in the chain of command of the Carter Page investigation, including senior officials, and take any action deemed appropriate. In addition, given the extensive compliance failures we identified in this review, we believe that additional OIG oversight work is required to assess the FBI's compliance with Department and FBI FISA-related policies that seek to protect the civil liberties of U.S. persons. Accordingly, we have today initiated an OIG audit that will further examine the FBI's compliance with the Woods Procedures in FISA applications that target U.S. persons in both counterintelligence and counterterrorism investigations. This audit will be informed by the findings in this review, as well as by our prior work over the past 15 years on the Department's and FBI's use onational security and surveillance authorities, including authorities under FISA, as detailed in Chapter One.

166 Page 408:

"As we described earlier in connection with the FBI's decision not to conduct defensive briefings to the Trump campaign about the information the FBI received from the FFG, we did not identify an Department or FBI policy that applied to that decision and determined that those decisions are judgement calls left to the discretion of FBI officials." Similarly, we did not identify any Department or FBI policy or guidance that specifically addresses using FBI counterintelligence and security briefings to members of political campaigns for investigative purposes, as occurred in Crossfire Hurricane. We believe there should be."

---

And yet the Washington Examiner reported on June 23, 2019 that the FBI gave two different counter-intel briefings to the campaigns of Clinton and Trump. So how can there not be a case of bias on behalf of the FBI leaders (who make these 'judgement calls') in providing one type of briefing to one candidate and another type to another candidate -- especially if there is concern that THAT candidate might be more susceptible to foreign influence or the campaign internally compromised.

There HAD to be a conscious reason for changing it up but the report skips right over it and moves on.

169 What a piece of shit.

Right on the first page:

Our role in this review was not to second-guess
discretionary judgments by Department personnel
about whether to open an investigation, or specific
judgment calls made during the course of an
investigation, where those decisions complied with or
were authorized by Department rules, policies, or
procedures. We do not criticize particular decisions
merely because we might have recommended a
different investigative strategy or tactic based on the
facts learned during our investigation. The question we
considered was not whether a particular investigative
decision was ideal or could have been handled more
effectively, but rather whether the Department and the
FBI complied with applicable legal requirements,
policies, and procedures in taking the actions we
reviewed or, alternatively, whether the circumstances
surrounding the decision indicated that it was based on inaccurate or incomplete information, or considerations
other than the merits of the investigation.

180 "As discussed in Chapter Ten, we determined that, during the 2016 presidential campaign, the Crossfire Hurricane team tasked several CHSs, which resulted in multiple interactions with Carter Page and George Papadopoulos, both before and after they were affiliated with the Trump campaign, and one with a high-level Trump campaign official who was not a subject of the investigation. All of these CHS interactions were consensuall y monitored and recorded by the FBI. As noted above, under Department and FBI policy, the use of a CHS to conduct consensual monitoring is a matter of investigative judgment that, absent certain circumstances, can be authorized by a first-line supervisor (a supervisory special agent). We determined that the CHS operations conducted during Crossfire Hurricane received the necessary FBI approvals, and that AD Priestap knew about, and approved of, all of the Crossfire Hurricane CHS operations, even in circumstances where a first-level supervisory special agent could have approved the operations. We found no evidence that the FBI used CHSs or UCEs to interact with members of the Trump campaign prior to the opening of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation."

Posted by: Brian in New Orleans at December 09, 2019 01:26 PM (CQ3Qb)

181 So they're saying Crossfire Hurricane was legitimate based on Papadopoulos telling Downer the Russians had dirt on Hillary.

I guess nobody thought to ask where Papadopoulos got that information?

Perhaps Barr and Durham are wondering about that.

"The FBI should review the performance of all employees who had responsibility for the preparation, Woods review, or approval of the FISA applications, as well as the managers, supervisors, and senior officials in the chain of command of the Carter Page investigation, for any action deemed appropriate."

Posted by: MJ at December 09, 2019 01:27 PM (gAMkn)

188 171 What a piece of shit.

Right on the first page:

Our role in this review was not to second-guess
discretionary judgments by Department personnel
about whether to open an investigation, or specific
judgment calls made during the course of an
investigation, where those decisions complied with or
were authorized by Department rules, policies, or
procedures. We do not criticize particular decisions
merely because we might have recommended a
different investigative strategy or tactic based on the
facts learned during our investigation. The question we
considered was not whether a particular investigative
decision was ideal or could have been handled more
effectively, but rather whether the Department and the
FBI complied with applicable legal requirements,
policies, and procedures in taking the actions we
reviewed or, alternatively, whether the circumstances
surrounding the decision indicated that it was based on inaccurate or incomplete information, or considerations
other than the merits of the investigation.
Posted by: Chi-Town Jerry at December 09, 2019 01:25 PM (so+oy)

Well, that certainly seems like a lot of words.

Posted by: J. Peterman at December 09, 2019 01:27 PM (Izzlo)

189 For these reasons, we recommend that the FBI review the performance of
the employees who had responsibility for the preparation, Woods review, or
approval of the FISA applications, as well as the managers, supervisors, and senior
officials in the chain of command of the Carter Page investigation, and take any
action deemed appropriate. In addition, given the extensive compliance failures we
identified in this review, we believe that additional OIG oversight work is required
to assess the FBI's compliance with Department and FBI FISA-related policies that
seek to protect the civil liberties of U.S. persons. Accordingly, we have initiated an
OIG audit that will further examine the FBI's compliance with the Woods Procedures
in FISA applications that target U.S. persons in both counterintelligence and
counterterrorism investigations. This audit will be informed by the findings in this
review, as well as by our prior work over the past 15 years on the Department's
and FBI's use of national security and surveillance authorities, including authorities
under FISA, as detailed in Chapter One.

230 As I and others have said in the past, the IG of an agency is the equivalent of the HR head at a company. Their job is to sympathize with the workforce and to make sure the company rules are followed regarding procedures. If a complaint is filed about an employee they investigate the complaint and then go to the boss with recommendations on how to handle the complaint so the company does not get sued. They do not make the rules the company operates by. My guess is the FBI has operating rules that are barely on the side of federal law. If federal laws were broken Barr can easily file indictments. If they were not then the most he can do is fire people. Restructure rules at the FBI. Training to follow the rules with new consequences for breaking. Yes it is bullshit but this is why you do not want people like Holder and Brennan in charge of agencies.

258 I don't think this exonerates anyone. The GOP overhyped it, as usual. All it really says is that, yeah, we didn't find a document admitting bias, nor did anyone admit they acted improperly. No kidding. You have to deduce bias by eliminating alternative explanations, which is beyond the scope of what the IG can do. They Crossfire Hurricane clowns admitted that the Steele dossier 'pushed the application over the line' or something to that effect. In other words, without it, no FISA application. The report shows several instances where not only was there no documentary support for factual assertions in the court filing but the information in the possession of the government contradicted those claims.

Durham needs to find out if anyone knew or should have known and if so, they need to be (a) prosecuted; (b) stripped of any clearance; and (c) disbarred if they are lawyers.

Barr is doing a great job here. It is a damn shame he wasn't AG from the beginning vs. non-entity Sessions.

Mixed bag actually, but overall pretty dammed well.

On point one most here likely thought the Dems wouldn't be that stoopid, but wonders will never cease. That just illustrates that as screwed up as the RINO repubs are the Democrats are in full political civil war by comparison. And that's working out GREAT! Thanks to the far left base's impeachment fever Trump just passed the entire democratic field in election polling. Dems could easily lose the hose in addition to Trump's guaranteed reelection.

On point two, it was just the opposite. After the shame investigation into Clinton why would you expect more?
Most people expected a whitewash and would have been happily surprised if otherwise, but bureaucrats gonna bureaucrat.

I never understood the fascination with this thing, other than the usual suspects grabbing on to any thread of hope they could possibly find. And I'll still never understand their insistence that everyone else hope right along with them, other than possibly a big case of group-think.


This report is what it was always going to be - a few hundred pages of DC covering it's own ass. Wake me up when somebody outside the DC cabal actually has the power to expose the Deep State, as well as the will to use it. Because one without the other is useless as tits on a boar hog.

321 lol, this is bs
he was baited, the regurgitated bait, why no mention of that as far as I can see?

In July 2016, 3 weeks after then FBI Director James Corney announced the
conclusion of the FBI's "Midyear Exam" investigation into presidential candidate
Hillary Clinton's handling of government emails during her tenure as Secretary of
State, the FBI received reporting from a Friendly Foreign Government (FFG) that, in
a May 2016 meeting with the FFG, Trump campaign foreign policy advisor George
Papadopoulos "suggested the Trump team had received some kind of a suggestion"
from Russia that it could assist in the election process with the anonymous release
of information during the campaign that would be damaging to candidate Clinton
and President Obama. Days later, on July 31, the FBI initiated the Crossfire
Hurricane investigation that is the subject of this report.
As we noted last year in our review of the Midyear investigation, the FBI has
developed and earned a reputation as one of the world's premier law enforcement
agencies in significant part because of its tradition of professionalism, impartiality,
non-political enforcement of the law, and adherence to detailed policies, practices,
and norms. It was precisely these qualities that were required as the FBI initiated
and conducted Crossfire Hurricane. However, as we describe in this report, our
review identified significant concerns with how certain aspects of the investigation
were conducted and supervised, particularly the FBI's failure to adhere to its own
standards of accuracy and completeness when filing applications for Foreign
Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) authority to surveil Carter Page, a U.S. person
who was connected to the Donald J. Trump for President Campaign. We also
identified what we believe is an absence of sufficient policies to ensure appropriate
Department oversight of significant investigative decisions that could affect
constitutionally protected activity.

330 They're not corrupt, they're just incompetent:

"We concluded that the failures described above and in this report represent serious performance failures by the supervisory and non-supervisory agents with responsibility over the FISA applications. These failures prevented OI from fully performing its gatekeeper function and deprived the decision makers the opportunity to make fully informed decisions. Although some of the factual misstatements and omissions we found in this review were arguably more significant than others, we believe t hat all of them taken together resulted in FISA applications that made it appear that the information supporting probable cause was stronger than was actually the case."

333 idk, but it doesn't seem to matter in Horowitz concludes "error in judgement", as he presents evidence of the (racketeered) fraud, and lies to FISC.


Error of judgement in misleading FISC, if Barr decides to indict/prosecute, that argument can be made at trial. Horowitz can white wash in his conclusions all he wants, but the raw facts get the indictment party started, and more subpoenas by DOJ (not the resisters) will determine their own conclusions (as Barr indicates he is not falling for the "mistakes were made", banana in the tailpipe trick)

Page xiv of the executive summary more or less says

"That so many basic and fundamental errors
were made by three separate, hand- picked teams on one of the most sensitive FBI investigations that was briefed to the highest levels within the FBI, and that FBI officials expected would eventually be subjected to close scrutiny, raised significant questions regarding the FBI chain of command's management and supervision of the FISA process."

There's more but all that's being done? A fucking audit.

This is as close as it gets to an outright statement that the FBI lied to the FISA courts and *nothing* is going to happen to anyone.

But Chief Justice Roberts is overseeing it, y'all! It'll be fine!

While the IG can only talk to FBI sources, Barr is under no such restriction. If the FBI yahoos in charge, under penalty of perjury, of making sure that applications to the FISA court are truthful and complete did not make sure of that, Barr doesn't have to prove anything to charge them other than they knew the Steele Dossier was a flawed political hit piece and used it anyway.

It was just a series of oversights that lead the FBI to file what they thought was a legitimate FISA application to spy on the Trump campaign though every word in the application was a lie orchestrated by the Hillary campaign and Obama holdovers. Could happen to anyone. No Bias, no intent, just Trumps bad luck again.
So once they found out it was all BS, what else could they do but have a special counsel and continue digging on the dirty dirty Trump.

Okay, realistically:

What the report condemns is the FBI policies and procedures, which actually allowed all this.

So the solution is to either reform the FBI (lol, had to say that for form's sake) or burn it to the ground.

369 137 President Trump signed an executive order to investigate the 5,000 missing Native American and Eskimo Women and Children that disappear every year.

I think every FBI and DOJ employee and contractors (those noble, professionals) mentioned in this report should be assigned to distant Indian Reservations and Eskimo Villages to investigate these disappearances. They should continue to investigate the disappearances until A) they are found to be incompetent political hacks and fired; B) they quit in disgust; or C) they find or account for every woman and child, and bring their murderers to Justice.

---------

I have some personal experience with the above approach.

I screwed up, I was assigned to a seemingly prestigious project that was a miserable slog. I toughed it out, and after nine months was forgiven by management.

If you cannot fire the bastards, make their lives miserable until they quit, and make sure their misery is far, far away from their friends and co-conspirators in Washington DC.

Alternatively, assign them as Legal Attaches in some Sub Saharan African Shithole Embassy.

417 Error of judgement in misleading FISC, if Barr decides to indict/prosecute, that argument can be made at trial. Horowitz can white wash in his conclusions all he wants, but the raw facts get the indictment party started, and more subpoenas by DOJ (not the resisters) will determine their own conclusions (as Barr indicates he is not falling for the "mistakes were made", banana in the tailpipe trick)

432 And now I am starting to understand why I always got such low marks on all of those "Reading Comprehension" standardized tests that I took in grade school.

I always over-analyzed, because I was capable of actually reading WHAT THE STORY WAS ABOUT, and then picking the answer that I thought best described the situation as my analytical mind saw it.

But, no - the people who designed the tests weren't capable of seeing how any interpretation other than the one that was crystal clear to their not-quite-as-analytical way of thinking, so my answers were always wrong.

Most journalists and political pundits (and politicians and bureaucrats) fall into the "obvious answer" part of the populace.

Which is why they see us as conspiracy theorists.

Posted by: Boswell at December 09, 2019 01:47 PM (32YRo)

435 Everybody needs to calm down. As has been said, the IG is the HR dept. It/Horowitz can't say "Yes, there was political bias . . . " because how would one prove that? Sure there are texts, but you're not going to get a jury to convict. And the risk of being counter-sued is large.


Likewise, a number of people were not able to be interviewed by Horowitz. McCabe, most likely Brennan, Baker and Comey and a host of others - unless they voluntarily did - were not interviewed because they aren't in gov't anymore.


And as Mollie H said - this was about the opening of the investigation. So if the FBI got from the CIA the Steele Dossier and assumed it was fine, then on face value, there was evidence to "open" the investigation. Now, getting the actual FISA warrants will be an issue as even this IG report indicates that errors in filing.


Not asking if this "report" is true is an error in judgement. Swearing to a court the contents is true - is not an error in judgement, but an error in following policy. However, saying it's true while knowing you did not specifically ask/determine it's true is illegal.


Yes, a bummer. But wait for Durham. People like Brennan - even he has said he probably would be asked by Durham - and others have surely been asked by Durham about certain things. Durham/Barr would not open a criminal investigation unless they planned to bring charges. If not, why go thru the effort to open one when you could just go thru the motions and be done with it?

is under no such restriction. If the FBI yahoos in charge, under penalty

prove anything to charge them other than they knew the Steele Dossier
was a flawed political hit piece and used it anyway.

Everyone in the federal government who is of the left gets to point at the blame at the next guy in the line and the buck stops nowhere. The guy who signed off on the BS application needs his ass in a sling until they find the guy who committed the crime, otherwise it was him.
This was BS FISA application to spy on the president! There is not one sole at this time who was involved in the process that can stand up and say that what is included in the application isn't total BS. But "hey mistakes happen" is no defense for using the federal government ot spay on a disfavored party and current occupant of the white house. It's a f-ing coup..

Rumor: Horowitz Report to be Released to Public in One Hour
Mark Meadows: I Now Understand the Reason for Media/Democrat Defensive Leaks; It's Worse Than They've Been Claiming




The DOJ inspector general report on the origins of the Russia probe has been transmitted to Congress.

— Alex Salvi (@alexsalvinews)

#twoweeks

The Daily Caller sets the table for what the report will talk about.


At the heart of the probe is whether the FBI misled the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) regarding information from Christopher Steele, a former British spy who worked in 2016 for the DNC and Clinton campaign.

The FBI relied on information from Steele to assert there was probable cause to believe Carter Page was a working as an agent of Russia. Michael Horowitz, the Justice Department’s highly respected inspector general, opened an investigation March 28, 2018, that initially focused on how the FBI handled Steele’s information, and whether investigators disclosed everything they knew about the dossier to the FISC.

Horowitz since expanded the investigation to look at whether the FBI had a sound basis to open investigations into four Trump campaign associates in late July 2016. The watchdog also investigated whether the FBI properly handled confidential sources used in the probe.

That part of the report will likely focus on at least two FBI informants: Steele and Stefan Halper, a former Cambridge professor whom the FBI tasked to connect with Carter Page and Trump aide George Papadopoulos.

...

The report is also likely to include an assessment of whether FBI officials were biased against Trump during the Russia probe. During an investigation into FBI activities during the Hillary Clinton email investigation, Horowitz’s team discovered anti-Trump text messages that FBI counterintelligence official Peter Strzok exchanged with FBI lawyer Lisa Page.

136 O/T but worth mentioning again:

415 The Epoch Times is independent and is owned and operated largely by Chinese nationals (ex-pats), largely in Hong Kong, Taiwan and the US. The people who own the Epoch Times are virulently anti-communist (they were part of the Nationalist forces if you go back far enough) and are sympathetic to the Falun Gong.

They are not a Taiwanese/Chinese or Falun Gong organization, though their owners are very sympathetic in that direction. Their primary thing seems to be anticommunism and surfacing human rights violations in China. They run dailies in Hong King and Taiwan, along with New York and Washington. They run a weekly for the rest of the US.

Recently, they have come out as fairly pro-Trump and virulently anti-coup, apparently because they view Trump as a holy force sent down to defeat communism.

IG's are like HR Departments.

Everybody thinks they are there to protect the little guy.

THEY AINT.

They are there to protect the Entity from calamity. HRs usually take the little guys side to keep the little guy from suing the assets out a corporation. IG's will do the same to protect the Deep State. They may admit mistakes were made and throw a couple of low levels to the wolves, but thet aint going to indict the Swamp itself.

The IG report is not designed to produce criminal indictments.



We know that. We've known that for two years.

However, when WE said nothing would happen, we weren't the ones squawking, "Wait for the Horowitz report!!!"

Posted by: rickb223

The Horowitz report will make findings and recommendations, we know that. A finding that spying was justified and a recommendation that lower-level agents refrain from expressing their bias on government-owned systems is what we dread.

Did President Trump make a mistake by releasing the phone transcript too soon?
Posted by: Soothsayer at December 09, 2019 12:38 PM (v9F6s)
---
No. If he had released it after the fake transcript was read into record, the Dems would have said the real transcript was fake. By releasing it so quickly, he set the narrative.

Also, they tipped their hand as to what they were attempting when they screamed that putting the transcript in a secure server was conspiracy (or some such). Their plan was to edit the transcript but Trump released it before they could access it to edit it.

Yes and everyone indicted by meuller would have those charges dropped. Fruit of the poisoned tree and all that.



I don't think the FISA court is empowered to take any actions. It reviews petitions and issues FISA warrants for, well, everything that is asked of it.

(I heard someone on FNC this morning say "well they're used to being able to trust the FBI so they naturally assumed it wasn't bullshit", or words to that effect).

The fruit of the poison tree doctrine should apply in other venues, though.

Combine this with the fact that Horowitz doesn't prosecute anyone and the report (later denied by Barr's office) that Barr doesn't agree with some of the conclusions of this report, and there's definitely room for continued optimism.

"I don't think the FISA court is empowered to take any actions. It reviews petitions and issues FISA warrants for, well, everything that is asked of it."

Unless there was an exception carved out for FISA, and to my knowledge it was not, any judge or magistrate who was misled via perjury and/or fraud can subject the offending party to criminal contempt proceedings. It's more or less a one-man band show, too: warrant issues, offender has to appear and defend and then face the music.

Spot on. Vindman *admitted* to wanted to change ("correct") the transcript but couldn't. Trump stymied all of them and put their dicks and tits in various wringers.

It may have done damage in terms of willingness of foreign leaders to speak candidly with the president, but I doubt it did any more damage than the cabal using the call against him in a star chamber.

And after reading this, it's no wonder we've been seeing defensive leaks in the New York Times and CNN. And that the Democrats rushed to hold an impeachment hearing the same day.

It's every bit as bad as advertised. And certainly worse than the media has been suggesting.

We have found that the Obama Administration and the Hillary Clinton Campaign conspired with domestic AND foreign intelligence agencies to illegally spy on, wiretap and attempt to entrap the current President of the United States Donald J. Trump while he was a candidate as well as after his election and inauguration.


In addition, we have found several violations of bribery, extortion, shakedown and treason committed by those same people.

521 So that's that.
"As part of our review, we also sought to determine w hether there was evidence that political bias or other improper considerations affected decision making in Crossfire Hurricane, including the decision to open the investigation. We discussed t he issue of political bias in a prior OIG report, Review of Various Actions in Advance of the 2016 Election, where we described text and instant messages bet ween t hen Special Counsel to the Deputy Director Lisa Page and then Section Chief Peter Strzok, among others, that included statements of hostility toward then candidate Trump and statements of support for then candidate Hillary Clint on. I n this review, we fou nd that, while Lisa Page attended some of the discussions regarding the opening of the investigations, she did not play a role in the decision to open Crossfire Hurricane or the four individual cases. We further found that while Strzok was directly involved in the decisions to open Crossfire Hurricane and the four individual cases, he was not the sole, or even the highest-level, decision maker as to any of those matters. As not ed above, then CD AD Priestap, Strzok's supervisor, was the official who ultimately made the decision to open the investigation, and evidence reflected that this decision by Priestap was reached by consensus after multiple days of discussions and meetings that included Strzok and other leadership in CD, the FBI Deputy Director, the FBI General Counsel, and a FBI Deputy General Counsel. We concl uded that Pr iestap's exercise of d iscretion in opening the investigation was in compliance with Department and FBI policies, and we did not find documentary or testimonial evidence that political bias or improper motivation influenced his decision.

officials in the chain of command of the Carter Page investigation, for any action deemed appropriate.

602 justified in opening a probe, not justified in filling the probe with fabricated "evidence" to extend the probe and frame Trump's people, with an end goal of destroying Trump's campaign and/or presidency.


The grounds for the probe were standard practice, but later we found out all the predicate was fabricated ... we were just fooled and made mistakes, SNAFU.


(in other words ... it was a coup, started with a flimsy probe, that is really just a common tactic of the FBI to dirty up their enemies and acquire the rubber stamp FISC spying approval)

The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg
"Democrats and their progressive media allies shrieking about Russia 24/7 need to step back and listen to themselves. And knowing a little history wouldn't hurt. Back in the 1950s, they used to laugh at the Birchers who were finding commies hiding under every bed. And who also made the claim that President Eisenhower was self-consciously a Soviet agent. That last bit was the straw that broke the camel's back for William F. Buckley, who barred anyone associated with the John Birch Society from appearing in his National Review magazine.

He thus booted them from the conservative movement. And it worked. The John Birch Society was effectively marginalized to this day.

"Well, that was then, this is now. The progressives do not have anyone like Buckley, no voice of reason or sanity who can stand athwart history, yelling 'STOP!'

"And since the only way to maintain a conspiracy theory against the evidence of facts and logic is by expanding it, they just keep getting crazier and crazier. Look at those WaPo headlines. One Republican after another gets declared a Russian asset, and then the *entire party* gets labelled a Russian asset, and there is no evidence that any editor at the WaPo ever said, 'Wow, this is just crazy talk' or 'We need to dial it back a bit, otherwise we'll sound like a bunch of kooks and lose the confidence of our readers.'

They're all on board the crazy train, and there's no brakes."

This whole reboot stuff from 30 years ago is pretty new.

Before, it was the odd sequel like The Color of Money (sequel to The Hustler) or Saraband (sequel to Scenes from a Marriage).

The closest from decades past may be Bond changing from one movie to the next and no one mentioning it.

In terms of franchises today that continue despite failures, there are a handful. Superman Returns acted like Superman III and IV never happened. The newest Halloween acted like none of the sequels since the original Halloween happened. The newest Terminator acted like nothing after Terminator 2 happened.

Actually, yes it is. The left only knows one way to have trials: show tribunals. You're already guilty, the trial is for them to demonstrate their virtue, warn others, and create an atmosphere of terror.

The college tribunals where they don't evenallow the accused to present a case, the Soviet trials where you're guilty, and the trial is merely to establish HOW guilty. Obviously you must be guilty, the people in power say you are, and they cannot be wrong. To even question this is yet another crime.

109 Movie actors ARE pretty stupid. Truman Capote made the same point. It's to their advantage. The camera is absolutely unforgiving when it comes to anything that looks like "acting" or self-consciousness. That's the problem both Olivier and Streep have. They're both brialliant actors, but we can see them acting. Works great on the stage. Not so much in film. Olivier strikes some poses in "Hamlet" that make you want to run head-first into a tree, without a helmet. That's why Katherine Hepburn told Hopkins--"Don't act. Just read the lines."

A sizable number of Harvard types and other Democrats got rich off the "loans for shares" program after the fall of the Soviet Union, which transferred the assets of the Soviet state into the hands of a handful of oligarchs, with minimal benefit to ordinary people (who were supposed to be the beneficiaries of the program).

128 Putin says Ukraine was corrupt ... Trump says Ukraine was corrupt ... therefore Trump is a Russian Agent. Sure, that makes sense.


They say this even as indictments are coming down for many Americans involved in money running out of Ukraine, and the clear prima facie evidence of Joe/Hunter taking millions in bribes (influence money) is widely known. Old Joe bragged about his clout.


But can they work up to Soros, and open the books on his propaganda enterprise, that reaches into 100 different influence operations?


Influence Ops are a BFD, they are foundational to how our FBI/CIA works covertly to dirty up their enemies (like Trump). It is the whole of the Fake News Industry (war on traditional America) ... and the whole coup is one giant influence op, working right within the DC corridors of influence peddling and sedition. It sways elections globally, and domestically.

137 This is just devastating. Trump should end this now. Note how much the Obama years made it worse.

Off the Record, U.S. Officials Acknowledge our Strategy in Afghanistan Is "Fatally flawed" https://t.co/EQmd0Asoa9

...Over in that faraway, deeply troubled country, the American taxpayer has paid for soybeans that won't grow, weapons that Afghan military forces lost, a $2.9 million farming-storage facility that was never used, and a $456,000 training center that "disintegrated" within four months. An Afghan power plant that the U.S. helped build was operating at just 2.2 percent of power production capacity. The SIGAR office round that significant portion of the U.S.-built buildings for the Afghan military are more flammable than international building codes permit. (Hey, why would you need to worry about burning buildings in a country at war, right?)

Inspector General John Sopko... uncovered waste, mismanagement, corruption, and all kinds of problems that no one wants to see, whatever their view of the war in Afghanistan.

...Heavy losses in the poppy-growing province of Helmand have required rebuilding an Afghan army corps and replacing its commander and some other officers as a result, a U.S. general said, of 'a combination of incompetence, corruption, and ineffectiveness.'"

...U.S. officials acknowledged that their warfighting strategies were fatally flawed and that Washington wasted enormous sums of money trying to remake Afghanistan into a modern nation."

Judging from the report, the more the United States tried to fix Afghanistan, the more they complicated and worsened existing problems.

During the peak of the fighting, from 2009 to 2012, U.S. lawmakers and military commanders believed the more they spent on schools, bridges, canals and other civil-works projects, the faster security would improve. Aid workers told government interviewers it was a colossal misjudgment, akin to pumping kerosene on a dying campfire just to keep the flame alive...

In public, U.S. officials insisted they had no tolerance for graft. But in the Lessons Learned interviews, they admitted the U.S. government looked the other way while Afghan power brokers - allies of Washington - plundered with impunity.

...The expectations got ratcheted down a little more, hoping that the Afghan government would get a little closer to something resembling a functioning state that would not collapse the moment we left.

It is not for lack of trying or lack of studying and attempting to adapt our efforts to be effective within the local culture. In 2010, the Pentagon started assembling Cultural Support Teams, a secret pilot program to insert women alongside Special Operations soldiers battling in Afghanistan. The Army reasoned that women could play a unique role on Special Ops teams: accompanying their male colleagues on raids and, while those soldiers were searching for insurgents, questioning the mothers, sisters, daughters and wives living at the compound.

The United States has allocated more than $133 billion to build up Afghanistan - more than it spent, adjusted for inflation, to revive the whole of Western Europe with the Marshall Plan after World War II. Since 2001, more than 775,000 U.S. troops have deployed to Afghanistan, many repeatedly. Of those, 2,300 died there and 20,589 were wounded in action, according to Defense Department figures.

Impeachment is killing them and they are looking for a "win" they can sell in purple districts and to key constituencies. That's their plan now anyway. They want this to show they can be "bipartisan". BTW I just spit my coffee when I wrote that.

(Peloton makes exercise equipment & had a mildly controversial ad which feminist spokesharpies disliked.)

Btw, RAS has Trump's JA at 51/48 today-- about 4 days in a row. This is quite different!

The actress in the Peloton commercial that the feminazi are screaming about has a new commercial out for a boutique distillery. I don't really get it. She is with two friends, and they are sitting at a table, with a martini in front of each of them. Staring into space, Ms Pelaton robotocally tells her friends that this gin is really smooth. Then proceeds to shoot the entire martini down, while her friends stare at her and mumble something about the evening was going to be interesting.

Supposedly a shot back at the feminazi's? I didn't understand it.

Given the era he's probably acting in, his teeth would be decayed, missing and they sure wouldn't be white like those.

This is why people think going back to the middle ages wouldn't be so bad. Cause they think it will be like how Hollywood protrays it.

The solution to this obvious. This is a clear-cut case of market failure.

The only thing to do is to permit Hollywood to make their woman-hating pap for general sale, but to ensure a federal subsidy for right-thinking films and will be guaranteed wide distribution.

If this fails to spark the right kind of responses, audiences will be selected by lottery, using the jury pool in each locale with a movie theater. Attendance will be mandatory. Tweeting or reviewing will be forbidden.

21 y.o. Airman Apprentice Cameron Walters graduated Great Lakes on November 22, and hadn't been at Pensacola Naval Station but a brief time. He was following in his retired Navy dad's footsteps.


On Thursday night, he and his dad video chatted. His father said his boy proudly told him he had passed the exam qualifying him to stand watch and help secure building entrances at NAS.


When news broke the next morning of shots being fired at the base, Shane Walters called his son's cellphone repeatedly throughout the day. There was no answer. He learned later his son was standing watch at the classroom building when he was killed.


God bless and comfort that dad and family. I can't even imagine.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but only the "right person" could tell the angry neighbors that they had to shut up and accept the loss of the ER.

Somebody who checked all the right boxes, including having the right last name?

The hospital was losing money hand over fist, and wanted out from under the burden of running a Level I ER in a mostly diverse neighborhood. Those ER's are usually full of people who don't pay, but not just "anybody" can tell the neighbors to shut the hell up and beat it. This is something Larry Elder could explain better than I can.

355 Figured I'd willow this and wake ace up.

Does anyone really expect the Dems to pay a serious price for their literally unbelievable and despicable behavior?

It's not 1972, or even 1980. Barring big black swans they've had little chance for the WH for a while. But they'll possibly even hold the House.

And the GOP will remain the same, based on current trends. Recall that the more ridiculous the Dems, the less responsive the GOP has to be. "What, you're going to vote for THEM? Oh, actually, no, we have no agenda and will not be tying ourselves to real objectives, thanks for asking."

The greens don't really look carrot or parsnip-like, and there are varieties of elongated beets in addition to the more common (in modern times, anyway) round ones.

62 I like these kitchen still life paintings. They are realistic enough to provide a level of life-like detail while retaining artistic elements of light and position. And being 'household' scenes allows the artist to show the deep wood grain and other details that appear so rich in indoor lighting. They are both effective and attractive.

108 90 My dad was a hunter so I did eat rabbit once. Tasted like chicken.

We ate rabbit and squirrel and frogs legs and venison and grouse and all kinds of fish and whatever else we could nab with guns and poles and nets. But the one time my dad and his buddies got a couple snakes and cooked them in strips held over the fire I was dead set against eating any.

Finally coerced into trying a bite, I did not find it to taste chicken-esque and was in no hurry to add it to my regular menu.

128 A good object lesson to watch is taking place this week with the UK elections, for anyone who wonders if a legislature would do anything so stupid that it would cost many members their seats. Remember all the maneuvering and infighting to block Brexit that took place in September - October previous? The Parliament was able to block it temporarily, but at the price of being forced to call new elections. (when they could have put those elections off for 3 years if they had allowed it to go forward)

UK Elections are on Thursday, and estimates are that, from all parties, at least 50 - 80 members of the previous parliament will be tossed out and replaced by pro-Brexiters. This also includes some conservative party members who refused to support brexit, and who have been replaced as a result.

So yes, politicians with puffed up egos commit political suicide quite easily.

I stopped drinking for eight years because my marriage was on the rocks and I was being a shitty father. It was mostly frustration about being in a shitty job but drinking lessened my ability to deal with stress. So I just stopped cold turkey and set up a long term plan to make my life better. And it worked. I drink moderately on the weekends and when I go out but never get hammered. And I saved my marriage and have a great relationship with my children.

290 I figure my upbringing was about halfway between those parents/guardians who keep starved kids in cages and the angelic couple raising happy, well-balanced children. "Halfway" being a broad range... somewhere between.

I didn't think about how bad it was vis-a-vis other families. Loved my family, hated the cruelty. Only after growing up and gaining a broader perspective did I realize, wow! That was really bad!

Yet even then, I find out, bad as it was, many have had it so much worse; it was only averagely cruel for the time and place.

Averagely savagery.

Most of my "secrets" will die with me. I have no fear that my mother will make a big confession, and the stepfather and father are long dead (piss be upon them).

But Iowa is a caucus, so anyone can win by simply playing enough dirty tricks and dumping money into it to flood the caucus. So who knows?

Yes, he'll probably win South Carolina.

However, Super Tuesday is next, and it includes California. Biden going into California, having lost 3 of the first 4 states (no matter delegate counts) will stink of a loser. He'll lose California and probably a few other Super Tuesday states.

515 All of my nephews are estranged from their biological fathers, with good reasons.

They turned out okay, anyway, very much because of good step-fathers.

I've mentioned before, a cabbie we had (last century) in Chicago. In short, during the ride, we talked about his son (picture proudly displayed on dashboard), somehow got on religion (said he was a non-believer). I said something about God as a father, and he cursed about his own cruel father. "Not like the father you had," I managed to say, just before we parted, "but like the father you want to be for your son."

Unnecessary exsanguination causes an imbalance of the four humors. The solution is to flush the sinuses to reduce phlegm and induce vomiting to reduce the biles.

I thought it was a beautiful, albeit minor, moment to have the DiCaprio character glance up at the sky.... puzzled. There was something different, something odd, a change in the atmosphere of some kind, but he couldn't figure out what it was, because... beyond his experience. Same for the audience. (It was the first, very slight 'whoosh' of incoming naval artillery shells.)

I also loved the scene where a mob throws a paving stone through a store window, which had until that moment featured a photo of... Abraham Lincoln.

The Morning Report - 12/9/19

trutrea.jpg

Good morning kids. Start of a new week and the top stories are the release of the IG Horowitz Report and the House Judiciary Committee set to charge President Trump with treason. Yes, gentle reader, you read that right: T-R-E-A-S-O-N. These people are truly sick. They are doing more than just playing games; they are playing with fire, here. If I had the ability to hold back and not slam my fist into Jerrold Nadler's gaping maw, I would certainly displace the perpetual slab of pastrami with a microphone and try to get him on record to answer the question "do you realize treason is a capital crime?" Okay, I get it. You turds are doing anything and everything you can to sabotage the President while covering up for your own crimes of sabotaging 2016 and then Trump's nascent presidency, which for the record, come within a red nether-hair's breadth of actual dictionary definition treason. Meanwhile, we still have hearings set for today, which you gave the Republicans on the committee essentially zero time to prepare for, dumping thousands of pages of evidence at the last minute. Not that that would matter since the committees are a farce of both fairness and legal precedent.

The Democrats have ensnared themselves in their own trap. For over three years, everything they have done to rig the election and then sabotage this president has failed, and spectacularly so. And since impeachment was promised even before Trump took the oath of office, impeachment is what they are going to have to deliver. But invoking treason is truly crossing a line. For argument's sake, let's say the House votes to impeach - and the jury is still out on if they even have the votes (although I suspect they do and the scuttlebutt that they don't is a head-fake), and then he is exonerated in the Senate. What then? Forget the shmoo-like bespectacled "G-d-cursed chimptato hybrid" screaming at the clouds. Will the Antifarians turn into Weathermen 2, Electric Boogaloo? I almost feel the Democrats would cheer that on, if not intentionally engaging in all of this to enable exactly that. As I said, they are playing with fire here.

NOTE: The opinions expressed in some links may or may not reflect my own. I include them because of their relevance to the discussion of a particular issue.

Yes, we all want the bad guys to pay a price.

But, first of all, let's not beat up our own people based on partial quotes. I think that Trump's instincts are right about a trial - he is going to win, and this way he gets some licks in on the other side. But I also think that it is better to have it over and done with.

Draw this thing out for months and making it ugly - because you know the Dems will lie and cover up and the press will push their story - is not necessarily the best thing for the country.

Quid pro quo failed.

Bribery failed.

It's polling worse and worse, so they keep upping the ante.

Treason will fail, too. Making the charges more extreme doesn't change the fact that no one believes the charges.

But it's a sure bet that censure is off the table. you can't charge treason and just settle for censure.

103 But this is that thing about "word" people. They are looking for words that they can use to change the world. Oh, look, in the Constitution it says Treason is a reason to impeach, so we will reference treason. Just like they did with bribery.

You are projecting, worse still you don't realize that they are communicating in a different language than you.

When they hint at "treason", it is because they want to change the meaning of the word. The Left has a very long history of deconstructing the language and converting words into emotional triggers where the emotion has little to do with the word's original meaning when used in a structured language.

The idea here is conjure up manipulative emotions for those who understand that there is concrete definition of "treason", but more importantly, they are preparing the word to have a different emotion among their usual clients they routinely manipulate.

Most people don't know what "treason" is, but there is an amount of strong emotions behind the utterance of that word.

Look at the word "racist". A generation ago, someone throwing that word at you would end up sifting their stool before heading off to the orthodontist. Now "racist" doesn't have any meaning other than being used as an emotional trigger, and even that trigger has lost most if not all of its effect just in time when the world is recognizing that those who have been slinging around the word "racist" all the time, are indeed bona fide racists (in the traditional sense).

In that way, "treason" might be receiving the same treatment, use it while it has some emotional clout against their enemy, and when the word has been abused sufficiently that it no longer holds any meaning, that is when we discover the actual legal treason when the indictments start rolling out. If/When there is a day of reckoning among the coup d' etat actors, the word "treason" will only solicit a yawn.

Keep in mind that when they reference "America" anymore they are speaking with THEIR formulation of "America", which we would not recognize as America.

IIRC (I was only a kid at the time), that was the reasoning Nixon gave for resigning (before he could be impeached) and Ford gave for pardoning him -- sparing the nation any more of the "long national nightmare" of Watergate.... which in retrospect, seems to have been a walk in the park compared to this.

117 Are you ready for the most cynical prognostication for the near future?


Well here goes...


Horowitz report is released Monday and it is a complete and total whitewash.



Lindsey Graham's judiciary committee hearing cements the theory that the LE/IC apparatus did nothing wrong and acted reasonably given....



....The findings of the totality of Obama's IC apparatus and signed off on by the GOP lead Senate "Intelligence Committee that Russia materially interfered with the 2016 election....



...The GOP controlled Senate will have simultaneously asserted that the Russians interfered with the 2016 elections and the actions of the LE/IC were reasonable in investigating and spying on the Trump campaign.



This one-two punch takes the sails out of the Barr/Durham investigation and they close up shop sometime early in the new year, just as....



The trial of President Trump starts in the Senate...



...Giving McConnell the whip hand against President Trump in being able to extract from him pretty much anything he wants in order to preserve his Presidency, The Quidest of Quid Pro Quos will ensue...



If Trump agrees to McConnell's terms, the Trump Presidency continues, if not then McConnell whips the Senate against the President and Trump becomes the first President removed from office via impeachment.



Trump agrees to McConnell's terms and we get a neutered President Trump having to dance to the uniparties tune.



We go into the election with Trump/Pence vs Biden/Abrams, Biden/Abrams are able to whip just enough of the the white working class in the rust belt and agitate just enough blacks and POC's to regain PA, WI, MI, take a couple of southern states and win the electoral college and the Presidency descively...



The Donks maintain control of the House by a couple seats, they regain the Senate by two seats, relegating McConnell to minority leader, a position he excels at as he can horse trade votes to keep the pork and spice flowing to the GOP puppet masters, which he can't do in a divided congress or with lean majorities in both chambers.



Having lost, Trump is indicted 5 minutes after Biden/Abrams is sworn in by the SDNY, arrested at his home in Mara Lago a day later and the world is treated to the image of the first mug shot of a President of the United States, Trump is tried and convicted by a NY jury, and spends the remaining days of his life in prison.



The SDNY and various other DA's spend considerable time and effort harassing his family from there on out.



The Deep State wins, the Communists win, The Uniparty wins, Civil War II goes live 2023...
