Paul Sperry: FBI "Investigation" Into Weiner Laptop Was a Gigantic Fraud Upon the Public;
FBI Only Looked at 3000 Emails, and Only Glanced At Those in a 12 Hour Window; Never Conducted Mandatory Security Assessment

Big, big story.

Don't expect Your Very Conservative Betters to note this, because they voted for Hillary or voted for a third party candidate with the hope that Hillary would win.

When then-FBI Director James Comey announced he was closing the Hillary Clinton email investigation for a second time just days before the 2016 election, he certified to Congress that his agency had "reviewed all of the communications" discovered on a personal laptop used by Clinton's closest aide, Huma Abedin, and her husband, Anthony Weiner.


At the time, many wondered how investigators managed over the course of one week to read the "hundreds of thousands" of emails residing on the machine, which had been a focus of a sex-crimes investigation of Weiner, a former Congressman.

Comey later told Congress that "thanks to the wizardry of our technology," the FBI was able to eliminate the vast majority of messages as "duplicates" of emails they’d previously seen. Tireless agents, he claimed, then worked "night after night after night" to scrutinize the remaining material.

But virtually none of his account was true, a growing body of evidence reveals.

In fact, a technical glitch prevented FBI technicians from accurately comparing the new emails with the old emails. Only 3,077 of the 694,000 emails were directly reviewed for classified or incriminating information. Three FBI officials completed that work in a single 12-hour spurt the day before Comey again cleared Clinton of criminal charges.

BTW, Peter Strzok was one of those three FBI officials. The guy who spoke of an "insurance policy" against Trump's election. The guy who said that Trump would never win the election, because "we will stop him."

"Most of the emails were never examined, even though they made up potentially 10 times the evidence" of what was reviewed in the original year-long case that Comey closed in July 2016, said a law enforcement official with direct knowledge of the investigation.

Yet even the "extremely narrow" search that was finally conducted, after more than a month of delay, uncovered more classified material sent and/or received by Clinton through her unauthorized basement server, the official said. Contradicting Comey's testimony, this included highly sensitive information dealing with Israel and the U.S.-designated terrorist group Hamas. The former secretary of state, however, was never confronted with the sensitive new information and it was never analyzed for damage to national security.

Even though the unique classified material was improperly stored and transmitted on an unsecured device, the FBI did not refer the matter to U.S. intelligence agencies to determine if national security had been compromised, as required under a federally mandated "damage assessment" directive.

The newly discovered classified material "was never previously sent out to the relevant original classification authorities for security review," the official, who spoke to RealClearInvestigations on the condition of anonymity, said.

Other key parts of the investigation remained open when the embattled director announced to Congress he was buttoning the case back up for good just ahead of Election Day.

One career FBI special agent involved in the case complained to New York colleagues that officials in Washington tried to "bury" the new trove of evidence, which he believed contained the full archive of Clinton's emails -- including long-sought missing messages from her first months at the State Department.

RealClearInvestigations pieced together the FBI's handling of the massive new email discovery from the "Weiner laptop." This months-long investigation included a review of federal court records and affidavits, cellphone text messages, and emails sent by key FBI personnel, along with internal bureau memos, reviews and meeting notes documented in government reports. Information also was gleaned through interviews with FBI agents and supervisors, prosecutors and other law enforcement officials, as well as congressional investigators and public-interest lawyers.

If the FBI "soft-pedaled" the original investigation of Clinton's emails, as some critics have said, it out-and-out suppressed the follow-up probe related to the laptop, sources for this article said.

"There was no real investigation and no real search," said Michael Biasello, a 27-year veteran of the FBI. "It was all just show -- eyewash -- to make it look like there was an investigation before the election."

Although the FBI's New York office first pointed headquarters to the large new volume of evidence on Sept. 28, 2016, supervising agent Peter Strzok, who was fired on Aug. 10 for sending anti-Trump texts and other misconduct, did not try to obtain a warrant to search the huge cache of emails until Oct. 30, 2016. Violating department policy, he edited the warrant affidavit on his home email account, bypassing the FBI system for recording such government business. He also began drafting a second exoneration statement before conducting the search.

The search warrant was so limited in scope that it excluded more than half the emails New York agents considered relevant to the case. The cache of Clinton-Abedin communications dated back to 2007. But the warrant to search the laptop excluded any messages exchanged before or after Clinton's 2009-2013 tenure as secretary of state, key early periods when Clinton initially set up her unauthorized private server and later periods when she deleted thousands of emails sought by investigators.

Far from investigating and clearing Abedin and Weiner, the FBI did not interview them, according to other FBI sources who say Comey closed the case prematurely. The machine was not authorized for classified material, and Weiner did not have classified security clearance to receive such information, which he did on at least two occasions through his Yahoo! email account – which he also used to email snapshots of his penis.

Many Clinton supporters believe Comey's 11th hour reopening of a case that had shadowed her campaign was a form of sabotage that cost her the election. But the evidence shows Comey and his inner circle acted only after worried agents and prosecutors in New York forced their hand. At the prodding of Attorney General Lynch, they then worked to reduce and rush through, rather than carefully examine, potentially damaging new evidence.

...


The FBI did not respond to requests for comment.

That's just the basics of the article.

Some key facts:

Hillary Clinton only turned over 30,000 emails to the Government which she and her lawyers deemed "relevant." The rest of the emails, she claimed, were about yoga routines and wedding plans, but no one was able to check on this, as she had deleted the rest of them. Bleach-bitted them, in fact.

There were nearly seven hundred thousand relevant emails on Huma Abedin's/convicted pervert Anthony Weiner's computer.

That's a lot of emails. A lot more than Clinton turned over.

However, the FBI repeatedly narrowed the search warrant for the emails that they would even bother receiving, to make sure that only the tiniest fraction of these 700,000 emails was even given a once-over.

The less evidence you even look at, the less likely it is you'll be forced to hurt Hillary Clinton's electoral chances, after all.

Even with such a massive narrowing of the evidence they were willing to look at -- just 3,077 out of the nearly 700,000 -- they still found new classified emails, even in that very limited sampling of emails.

Of course, the FBI, under Strzok's guidance, ignored the NY office's report that they had hundreds of thousands of emails relevant to the "Midyear Review." They delayed reviewing them for as long as they could -- they only wound up reviewing them when they found out that news had leaked and congressmen knew they were sitting on this.

Here's one exchange illustrating that:

By Oct. 21, Strzok had gotten the word. "Toscas now aware NY has hrc-huma emails," he texted McCabe’s counsel, Lisa Page, who responded, "whatever."

Four days later, Page told Strzok -- with whom she was having an affair -- about the murmurs she was hearing from brass about having to tell Congress about the new emails. "F them," Strzok responded, apparently referring to oversight committee leaders on the Hill.

Even IG Horowitz called the extremely restricted search of the emails "too narrow:"

"The FBI only reviewed emails to or from Clinton during the period in which she was Secretary of State, and not emails from Abedin or other parties or emails outside that period," Horowitz pointed out in a section of his report discussing concerns that the search warrant request was "too narrow."

That put the emails the New York case agent found between 2007 and 2009, when Clinton's private server was set up, as well as those observed after her tenure in 2013, outside investigators' reach. The post-tenure emails were potentially important, Horowitz noted, because they may have offered clues concerning the intent behind the later destruction of emails.

Remember, Clinton's IT guy destroyed the bulk of these emails off Hillary Clinton's servers right after speaking to Hillary Clinton's lawyer. He did this despite the fact that these were government records and they were under official request for disclosure by the government. The IT guy has never explained what Hillary Clinton's lawyer said in that conversation -- he claimed lawyer-client privilege, despite the fact that he had never been a client of that lawyer before. The IT guy was also found to be obviously, flagrantly lying when asked bout the emails.

These emails on the Abedin computer could have told us what happened to cause the destruction of so many emails from Hillary Clinton's servers. But Comey had decided to not even look into this potential obstruction of justice and destruction of government records, only searching her emails for classified-information violations, and the subsequent warrant for the Abedin/Weiner records likewise avoided searching them for evidence of obstruction of justice.

Even though it was impossible to search even these few emails and clear Hillary before the election, Strzok decided that they would do the impossible for Hillary anyway:

At the same time, they cut off communications with the New York field office. "We should essentially have no reason for contact with NYO going forward on this," Strzok texted Page on Nov. 2.

Strzok followed up with another text that same day, which seemed to echo earlier texts about what they viewed as their patriotic duty to stop Trump and support Clinton.

"Your country needs you now," he said in an apparent attempt to buck up Page, who was "very angry" they were having to reopen the Clinton case. "We are going to have to be very wise about all of this."

"We're going to make sure the right thing is done," he added. "It's gonna be ok."

Responded Page: "I have complete confidence in the [Midyear] team."

"Our team," Strzok texted back. "I'm telling you to take comfort in that." Later, he reminded Page that any conversations she had with McCabe "would be covered under atty [attorney-client] privilege."

The article then notes that Comey claimed it was now possible to do the impossible by an amazing technological breakthrough, in which computers would find the duplicate emails and thereby eliminate them from the need of human review.

But this was a lie. They only attempted this technological trick; it actually failed.

But according to the IG, FBI's technology division only "attempted" to de-duplicate the emails, but ultimately was unsuccessful. The IG cited a report prepared Nov. 15, 2016, by three officials from the FBI’s Boston field office. Titled "Anthony Weiner Laptop Review for Communications Pertinent to Midyear Exam," it found that "[b]ecause metadata was largely absent, the emails could not be completely, automatically de-duplicated or evaluated against prior emails recovered during the investigation."

...

Contrary to Comey's claim, the FBI could not sufficiently determine how many emails containing classified information were duplicative of previously reviewed classified emails. As a result, hundreds of thousands of emails were not actually processed for evidence, law enforcement sources say.

"All those communications weren't ruled out because they were copies, they were just ruled out," the federal investigator with direct knowledge of the case said. The official, who wished to remain anonymous, explained that hundreds of thousands of emails were simply overlooked. Instead of processing them all, investigators took just a sample of the batch and looked at those documents.

Remember the very biased Agent #1 and Agent #5, one of whom cried when Hillary lost, and one of whom said he'd start carrying guns on the street to protect himself against Trump's America?

Here's what these two were telling each other during this "investigation:"

As the search was under way, one of the Midyear agents – Agent 1 -- confided to another agent in a Nov. 1 instant message on the FBI's computer network that "no one is going to pros[ecute Clinton] even if we find unique classified [material]."

But they also did their damnedest to avoid finding new classified material.

And so, given that there was no "amazing technological breakthrough" allowing them to complete this "review" and clear Hillary before the election, three agents, including Strzok, went through the 3,077 emails (out of almost 700,000) in just a 12 hour period.

Here's what Strzok said when his 12-hour fake-review was done and he had told Comey he could re-close this sham investigation:


As news of the case's swift re-closure hit the airwaves, Page and Strzok giddily exchanged text messages and celebrated. "Out on CNN now ... And fox... I WANT TO WATCH THIS WITH YOU!" Strzok said to Page. "Going to pour myself a glass of wine..."

And... even trying not to find new classified material, Hillary's emails were so stuffed with it they failed to miss the thing they were trying not to find:

Yet investigators nonetheless found 13 classified email chains on the unauthorized laptop just in the small sample of 3,077 emails that were individually inspected, and four of those were classified as Secret at the time.

Contrary to the FBI's public claims, at least five classified emails recovered were not duplicates but new to investigators.

The end of the article describes those Secret emails.

Read the whole thing. At least click the link and maybe look at some other headlines from Real Clear Investigations. They did amazing work here and should be rewarded.

2) What is wrong about merely observing that an event indicates that there is something wrong with our national policies?

3) It's a cheap shot and laziness to try to refute a logical observation with "you just wanna show how tough you are". You just wanna show how "woke" you are, or how empathic you are. Yay for you. See how lazy that is?

In other words, what percentage of a Secretary of State's email should be expected to be classified? This can be checked against the email of other SoSs (e.g., Powell, Albright, etc.)

Then, if Hillary's is well below that estimate (and I suspect that it is), then, hmmm, what happened? Where did all of the classified emails go? Where they not found? Did she delete them? Was Hillary just less relevant than previous SoSs (hehe)?

66 The DoJ has gone completely rogue. And Congress doesn't care, hell they probably support it.

You can't vote your way out when they work to overturn elections.

You can't legislate your way out when they just ignore the law.

I'm not even sure we can Article V our way out, since they see the Constitution as optional.

That...does not leave good options on the table.

67 One should never question the time to process you see - it took the FBI months to process the limited shit Hillary let them have. But then recall they turned that laptop around in less than a week.

Sure - it's like my music files - there's copies in Amazon, and Itunes, and personal, and it's all just Beethoven you see, so we can ignore most of it.

That's how emails are, you have only 400 real emails, and you have like 1000 copies of EACH email, see? That's how email works! Just a lot of duplicates.
And of the 400, 380 were discussions of yoga.

100 Even before the election I was saying the only reason there was any mention of this by Comey was that the NY cops (or FBI) had seen very disturbing things (some reports, they had to seek counseling for their mental health afterwords, indicating to me ... what? nasty child abuse, snuff tapes, what?) ... anyway, those NY agents told Comey do something or they would ...

so Comey did something ... but true to form for a fixer, he whitewashed, delayed, covered, denied, lied ... that's the only reason Comey did that last minute report/exoneration of HildaBeast.

But I can't recall how I knew that then ... maybe it was Wikileaks, or just some rumor mill that most discount ... seemed legit though. They flooded us with mis-info, including most notably ... Trump/Russia 24/7 smokescreen, which still continues.

I've been operating on the assumption that, when you build something that looks like a Secret Police, it'll behave like a Secret Police. That simple things like Rules and Oaths wouldn't constrain it.

But here ... today ... I've learned better. It's an Institution for American Excellence. The only problem, as it turns out, is a small cabal of highly-placed Obama operatives with evil intentions. And that handful of bad actors, sadly, has led THIRTY FIVE THOUSAND FUCKING EMPLOYEES OF THE FBI astray.

Thirty five thousand shining faces, yearning to do Good, if only their leadership would show them how.

130 Ultimately, that's the problem with the FBI. Its that trick of "prosecutorial discretion" which allows them to decide what gets investigated and tried, and what does not. They're using it to ignore political allies and attack political foes. That's not justice, it is simply the use of power to benefit one side and destroy the other.

Prosecute Dinesh D'Souza, ignore Rosie O'Donnell. Prosecute Flynn, ignore Hillary. Prosecute Manfort, ignore Rice. Its happening over and over, and the result is that Americans can see that there is no justice, only power and money.

134 Thanks ace, this is an outstanding example of "journalism" - real journalism.


Two minor observations.


Everything Sperry and his team did here just underscores, yet again, the disastrous inadequacy and timidity of Horowitz's report. The improprieties in the MYE "investigation" were constant, spectacular, well documented, and tracked perfectly with the collateral evidence of bad intent by the players (Strzok, etc.).


I don't know, haven't read yet but will, but shutting down the NY end of this required not just Comey's sham "re-opening" but also Lynch's crude, Soviet-style threats to the NYPD - who also had access to some incendiary factoids about the laptop - to persecute them over the police abuse case (can't recall - probably the death of the cigarette peddler).

1. The FBI whitewashed the investigation and were displeased about the discovery of the Wiener Laptop

May 16, 2018

Washington (CNN) - A draft of the much-anticipated report from the Justice Department's internal watchdog, addressing a wide-ranging set of allegations that department protocols were flouted when the FBI investigated Hillary Clinton's handling of classified information, has been completed, according to sources with knowledge of the matter.
Inspector General Michael Horowitz informed lawmakers on Capitol Hill Wednesday that his office has provided leadership at the Justice Department and FBI with a copy of the draft report and has requested that they review it for classified information.

Over 3 months ago.

Not gonna jump fully into the endless taffee-yank over whether enough FBI folks made sufficiently ostentatious gestures of outrage and protest over what was obviously (even without this extensive detail) a ridiculous non-investigation of obvious Espionage Act violations.


But note that this whole thing was a "headquarters special" (term I think was used) - it did not follow normal procedures. It was close-hold. The "small group" - or "secret society", as the perps themselves referred to it - handled it.


It's only on the margins, occasionally, where other FBI/DOJ figures were involved. Such as some of those cited in Sperry's reporting. Or - presumably, and I can't be the only one sort of anxiously waiting for this to all be confirmed/revealed - the 2nd agent at the Flynn ambush interview.

Like many intel products, they're educated guesses (sorry for those who think bad TV and movies describe how intel works).


Because you're trying to figure out how much of something that *could* have been compromised *was* compromised. Rare that you have a precise picture of the situation.


And as I recall, the revised estimate was that, in fact, Clinton's massive, systematic, obvious, undeniable, multi-year violation of Espionage Act requirements *did* result in foreign exploitation (again, an educated guess, at best, most of the time).

If Donald Trump isn't successfully impeached during his term, that's about the order of magnitude that I'm going to expect from the first Democratic president after him.

262 30,000 emails during her SoS tenure only worked out to 20 emails per day. It was always a pathetically low number for someone who was conducting the entire US Foreign policy for four years. Most of us have at least that when we first log in.

We have a winner. Captain Carl - please go to the cashier to collect.

Folks - the GOP and DNC have a TREMENDOUS fucking racket going. Regardless of how bad either party steps on their dick - they're guaranteed to be no less than the second most powerful political party in the country ... which makes them the second most powerful ENTITY in the country. The only thing they have to do - to keep this sweet deal going - is agree to fight each other all they want, but keep everybody else on the outside looking in.

Now why ... oh fucking why ... would they ever sit still for an outsider like Trump to come barging in, jumping straight to the front of the line, and becoming President ?

All you Evangelical Optimists just refuse to get it. This is the game ... right here. Neither the GOP or DNC can AFFORD to let Trump complete a term. If they do - it'll happen again. It happens enough ... and being a boss in either Political Party just won't mean anything anymore. Not when anybody can walk right off the street and go straight to the top.

God forbid the friggin' guy do Two Terms and form his own power block in the GOP ... or, dare I say it, become a threat to form a Third Party. That shit is simply unacceptable.

But the whole SES type, top security people that run the bureaucracy have been sabotaging Trump/Nunes/etc. efforts from withing, refusing to put the right people in place (as Gorka said, people he wanted were actually punished, not assigned to him) ...

Those DeepState people are still in place, still undermining and implementing their own agenda (which is "not a wall, end of sovereign America, globalism for their oligarchs that meet at CFR" type agenda).

324 I can. Real easily. Those teams weren't selected randomly, they were selected for unswerving personal loyalty to Queen Hillary, Lady of Infernal Vengeance, Dread, Fear, & Happy Hour Pricing. They weren't going to risk having someone honest come along and spoil the party. Think of the rewards they were dreaming of as Hillary waddled her way and accepted her crown and scepter - I mean - got sworn in. Imagine the horror they experienced when they learned that wasn't going to happen.

337 But according to the IG, FBI's technology division only "attempted" to de-duplicate the emails, but ultimately was unsuccessful. The IG cited a report prepared Nov. 15, 2016, by three officials from the FBI's Boston field office. Titled "Anthony Weiner Laptop Review for Communications Pertinent to Midyear Exam," it found that "ecause metadata was largely absent, the emails could not be completely, automatically de-duplicated or evaluated against prior emails recovered during the investigation."

This is odd. It's not all that difficult to find duplicates among text pieces, even if they have funny encodings. Sure, you won't get 100% but identifying almost all duplicate passages in text is not rocket surgery.

I think what's more likely is that they were horrified to find that there were far fewer duplicates than they had hoped so they made up some more bullshit excuses to explain the earlier bullshit excuses which crapped out.

Remember ? Back when I'd say shit like that ... and all the "adults" in the room would tell me how fucking stupid and/or alcoholic I was ?

And look around now ... still the same old crowd, shouting from the mountain. "No way the GOP will move against Trump". "No way Sessions is a mole". "Trust the Investigation". "The FBI is good peeps".

On and on and on. Yeah - Hillary could eat a baby - and her supporters won't care. Well - the FBI can walk into a court-room at this point and put two in Manafort's temple ... and the Law and Order Addicts ain't changing their minds either.

Her campaign slogan "Vote For Me Or Your Kitteh Gets It" had real emotional appeal.

Seriously though, these people live in a bubble. They weren't from the Omaha FBI office, they were from DC, and of DC the most culturally enclaved parts of DC. They are the repository of all conventional wisdom, absolutely cocksure in their certainty; they have all of the vices of an established order and none of the virtues. All in all I am not surprised by how hard they have fallen since they started out with no understanding of their own limitations or of those around them.

437 Actually... if all you had was text copies of emails... in a single file, it would be difficult to parse out duplicates.

Not at all. Not 100%, sure, but you could eliminate or gauge a huge percentage of identical texts and near-identical.

Usually with forwarded emails (and the like) you could match pieces but there would be extra parts - if you don't have the metadata. But matching actual words in sequence is not that tough to do these days, especially with the resources the FBI has available to it.

Simple if they had the emails themselves, as you could just look at date / time and recipients...

A good part of it was.

An IG report isn't really a criminal indictment. It's a recitation of factual evidence that was uncovered during an investigation and doesn't get into charges or hyperbolic language. A lot of people thought it was underwhelming but I think their expectations of what it would say and how it would say it where too high.

As part of the IG rules, they are required to report any criminal activity they find during an investigation to the head of the branch they work for for criminal investigation. Many don't believe anything will come of it but that is when Huber was appointed.

You would either have to change all the emails into Text...

or the Text file into emails.

Neither of which is a fast or easy proposition.

If Texts, then you would have to parse the entire thing for phrases... ONE AT A TIME... because no data base of phrasing would exist.

Now, to change a Text file back into emails? depending on the format of the text file itself.. difficult and prone to error.


Also... to even start this, they would need to have copies of ALL of Clinton's UNREDACTED classified texts... something they probably would not have...

And I, for whatever reason, wasn't surrounded by all these Natural Conservatives that you speak of. I saw Liberals, Conservatives, Environmentalists, Race Hustlers, Evangelicals, and about everything else.

They all had one thing in common, however. Those that were successful in moving up the ranks were good at shutting their fucking mouths and doing what they were told.

There are things the Left does way better than us, and not smearing people within their own ranks is one. You know someone is a bad hire, you talk to them directly, and you make replacement plans. You do not fvcking announce it to the world.

Trump is in a tunnel of chaos with Manafort & Cohen crap, and he is using Sessions as a scapegoat bcz other people are making him a scapegoat.

Trump should be going after the Left, not his own guy...no matter what he may think. This helps no one.

Pathetic to slam Sessions. Pathetic. It took us 3 Presidencies to get us to where we are. Three. Now you all are mad he didn't clean it up in a few years? Geez.

She'll say something awful like "What difference, at this point, does it make?" Then cut the best sound bites into campaign ads.

Straightforward from here:

1. Appoint special prosecutor
2. Drag Hillary et. al. in front of Congress

I think he does when Mueller releases his report - or just before mid-terms. He'll give a speech about what's at stake. I think he'll lay out as much as he can, because if he gets too far into the weeds - he'll lose people.

But when the next IG report comes out - Two Weeks !! - or whatev, he'll use that as a spring board because the alphabet networks will ignore the report.

708 GRAHAM: 'VERY LIKELY' TRUMP FIRES SESSIONS AFTER MIDTERMS



The GOP will gain seats in the Senate.



If the Dems do not take over the House, what will they do? They will
remain powerless, and Trump will have an effective mandate to start
clearing out the Shadow Government. Sessions goes, Mueller goes,
Rosenstein goes. Security clearances for former employees go, and purges
throughout the bureaucracy.

This goes well beyond the people who are in power in government. Trump is fundamentally reordering our economy and the world trading atmosphere.

There are powerful and wealthy people around the world not just the US who benefited greatly from the old order. They are not going to go quietly while trillions of dollars are at stake.

This was never going to be easy, fast or without pain. They were never going to take this sitting down without a fight. Save some patches of hair, there is a lot more hair burning before things start to look like they are going our way.

Nope ... not how this works. Progressives fight with maximum effort on all fronts. Their effort will have to be met with greater force, everywhere.

The refusal of Republicans to do this is why Progressives have always won and will continue to win.

Sessions should not only be removed ... but ruined. As a warning to the next mole. As retribution for Mueller's victims. As a little something to boost morale.

And every other battle with Progressives should be fought with equal ruthlessness, on all fronts, with no quarter given.

Well, the problem is the DOJ simply is not in the battle on our side. Period. And sooner or later they can find crimes on anyone, PDJT not excepted. Lets not forget- the entire investigative and prosecutorial resources of the United States government are presently arrayed against one man. How he sleeps at night and functions so specatacularly well is a total mystery to me.


Right now they don't have anything at all and, yet, the left is positively salivating at what they sense to be the nearness of overturning the election. They can taste it.


If Sessions, Rosenstein, Horowitz, Huber and whomever cannot mount a legal battle against Mueller, at some point he will deliver enough juice to his clients (the Demofascists) to pull off a win in November and an impeachment.

Recusing himself in a no-win situation was probably for the best. It made the conflict a political situation, not a legal dilemma. Trump operates well in a political struggle, but if Sessions had not recused himself, then he (considering WHAT WE KNOW NOW) would have been the immediate target of the investigation, forcing Trump into a "keep Sessions or fire him" problem before the Obama masks had come off. We know how Elliot Richardson dealt with it during Watergate.

I'm in seattle, dawg, where do you buy your ammo?

Posted by: nurse ratched at August 23, 2018 03:21 PM (d7Ww2)

sgammo.comluckygunner.com
also, search with ammoseek.com - this is a good place to find deals.

And locally during the holiday sales, Sportco in Fife. Their door busters on Black Friday for 9mm is as cheap as anything except reloading yourself.
For those outside of the area, Fife is NOT in King County / Seattle where they taxed ammo last year.

830 Recusing himself in a no-win situation was probably for the best. It made the conflict a political situation, not a legal dilemma. Trump operates well in a political struggle, but if Sessions had not recused himself, then he (considering WHAT WE KNOW NOW) would have been the immediate target of the investigation, forcing Trump into a "keep Sessions or fire him" problem before the Obama masks had come off. We know how Elliot Richardson dealt with it during Watergate.

Yes. Also, hindsight is 20/20. When he recused himself, I wasn't sure if it was best, but everything has been questionable since Trump. Everything. New rules on both sides. There is no way that had he decided differently we wouldn't have a whole new set of problems, as you mention.

Sometimes the bad saves us from the worse.

831 825/ Yes, Sessions will only be understood in hindsight. He will be viewed as a milquetoast Attorney General who was completely absent on the most pressing issues during his reign as AG.

Complete submissive. A huuuuuge disappointment. Feckless. Bigly.

It doesn't matter what I believe in. The reality is, that none of the people in our government do.



And at that point, you don't have a republic. You have serfdom.

833 #830 - Sessions recessing himself was a critical component of the "insurance policy." Consider the timeline:

1. November 18, 2016: President-Elect Trump indicates he will nominate Jeff Sessions as his Attorney General for the DOJ.

Posted by: RichardWindsor at August 23, 2018 04:54 PM (db5dt)

834 /2

2. November 20, 2016 to January 10, 2017: In the approx 50 days between the Trump/Rogers meeting and the incoming publication by BuzzFeed on Jan. 10, 2017, the corrupt Deep State Obama officials, meet, confer and plan strategy, including the grant media Narrative. They decide: We need to create an active investigation into Trump/Russia AND we need to ring-fence that investigation away from all Trump officials and into the hands of people we can control and influence. Think on this when you consider Susan Rice memo to self about White House meeting with Obama, Yates, Comey and Rice on Jan. 5, 2017 where Obama was likely briefed on "the insurance plan" that would launch officially on Jan. 10 with Buzzfeed publication of Steele Dossier.

835 [Dates are 2016 in post #2 - whoops]

3. January 6, 2017: Comey and other intelligence officials travel to Trump Tower in New York to brief the president-elect on the intelligence community's findings about Russian interference in the campaign.

Posted by: RichardWindsor at August 23, 2018 05:01 PM (db5dt)

836 4. January 10, 2017: BuzzFeed publishes the "Steele Dossier" and makes it public for the first time.

Posted by: RichardWindsor at August 23, 2018 05:01 PM (db5dt)

837 5. January 10, 2017: In Jeff Session's Senate confirmation hearing, then Sen. Franken asks if Sessions had any contact with "the Russian Government." Sessions says he had no communications with "the Russians" in his capacity as a "surrogate" of the Trump Campaign.

Posted by: RichardWindsor at August 23, 2018 05:03 PM (db5dt)

838 6. February 9, 2017 to March 1, 2017: Progressive MSM, and Dem and GOP politicians aggressively push for Jeff Sessions to recuse himself from "Russia Investigation." Do a Google search for news articles from Feb. 9 and March 1, 2017. All of the usual Progressive media outlets publish ad nauseam the same narrative that Sessions is a Russia! Russia! Russia!

Posted by: RichardWindsor at August 23, 2018 05:05 PM (db5dt)

839 7. March 2, 2017: Jeff Sessions recuses himself from "any existing or future investigations of any matters related in any way to the campaigns for President of the United States."

Posted by: RichardWindsor at August 23, 2018 05:06 PM (db5dt)

840 8. With Sessions now sidelined on 2016 campaign-related issues, the corrupt cabal at the DOJ and FBI, still led at this point by James Comey, has protected their pre-election crimes from exposure to Sessions. Now they need to execute Phase 2 of their plan and protect their pre-election crimes from exposure to other members of the FBI, DOJ, Congress and the American people. They need an "Active Investigation" so they can refuse to answer any questions about these issues, and they need to further insolate the evidence from INTERNAL exposure to agents within FBI and DOJ. They need a Special Counsel..

Posted by: RichardWindsor at August 23, 2018 05:07 PM (db5dt)

841 9. March 2, 2017 to May 9, 2017: In this crucial approx. 40-day period, the corrupt cabal determines that the best course of action to ensure the creation of an active investigation and the appointment of a Special Counsel is to orchestrate the firing of FBI Director Comey by President Trump.

Posted by: RichardWindsor at August 23, 2018 05:08 PM (db5dt)

842 10. May 9, 2017: Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein sends letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions recommending the firing on James Comey. On same day, May 9, 2017, Jeff Sessions sends a letter to Donald Trump recommending that Trump fire Comey. Trump fires Comey on May 9.

Posted by: RichardWindsor at August 23, 2018 05:09 PM (db5dt)

843 11. May 17, 2017: Eight days after Trump fires Comey (on the recommendation of Rod Rosenstein), Rod Rosenstein appoints Robert Mueller as Special Counsel.

Posted by: RichardWindsor at August 23, 2018 05:09 PM (db5dt)

844 12. (Last) Result? Russia investigation of Trump by cherry-picked Trump hating Dem operatives within DOJ and FBI lead by Mueller, with unlimited powers and unlimited budget.

Crucially important, the entire investigation is completed walled-off from any Trump officials or from any DOJ or FBI employees a Trump official hires or promotes.

FBI and DOJ, because this is an "Active Investigation," can (and do, successfully) stonewall FOIA requests and Congressional investigations.

With the Active Investigation defense, they also add a secondary protection level by declaring EVERYTHING super-duper Top Secret and thus hide everything behind the classified pay wall.

And, here we are.

845 Flaming skull? Nah. Won't rate a blink in the media.

846 I have to agree with Muns (845) what should be huge will be nothing..

847 {Wishing trump had Russia in his pocket, to release all those emails}

Posted by: socalcon at August 23, 2018 08:10 PM (9ykJP)

848 Well, obviously. I mean, the very EXISTENCE of those emails on Weiner's laptop was a violation of the law. Which, of course, begs the immediate question, "How did they get there?". And we all know the answer to that question, so that question could never even be ASKED.

849 The flaming skull is well deserved.
