Comey Blasts Durham over Blasting Horowitz and His Report…What Does Goldman and the SDNY Have to Do With It?

FoxNews.com reports that

Former FBI Director James Comey blasted U.S. Attorney John Durham over his statement objecting to the newly released report from DOJ Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz looking into the origins of the Russia investigation.

Following the release of Horowitz’s report, which noted several significant errors in the highly controversial Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) application process but found no evidence of wide-reaching political bias within the FBI, Durham in a rare move released a statement of his own revealing that his ongoing investigation was drawing a different conclusion from what the DOJ watchdog found.

“Based on the evidence collected to date, and while our investigation is ongoing, last month we advised the Inspector General that we do not agree with some of the report’s conclusions as to predication and how the FBI case was opened,” Durham said in a statement.

“I have the utmost respect for the mission of the Office of Inspector General and the comprehensive work that went into the report prepared by Mr. Horowitz and his staff,” Durham also stated. “However, our investigation is not limited to developing information from within component parts of the Justice Department. Our investigation has included developing information from other persons and entities, both in the U.S. and outside of the U.S.”

Appearing on MSNBC, Comey took exception to Durham’s unprecedented statement.

“I can’t make any sense of it,” Comey reacted. “First of all, what is he doing talking about his work? He’s supposed to be a professional. If you must investigate, go get facts and then show them to the American people, but don’t be part of a sliming of the IG and the department as a whole. Do your work, but I have no idea what the work is that he’s doing. We’ll have to be quiet again, wait for the work to be finished.”

He then offered a warning for the U.S. attorney.

“What I worry about for Mr. Durham is when someone needs to investigate him when he doesn’t support the president’s conspiracy theories,” Comey said.

“Do you think that’s possible?” MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace asked.

“Of course, given the way these people act,” Comey responded. “He’s a pro by reputation. He will gather facts, but if he doesn’t find the facts that these characters want, there’ll be somebody put on him.”

Earlier in the day, Comey claimed vindication following the release of the Horowitz report.

“So it was all lies,” Comey tweeted, in an apparent reference to President Trump’s claims that the FBI wrongly investigated his ties to Russia. “No treason. No spying on the campaign. No tapping Trumps wires. It was just good people trying to protect America.”

Comey, in his tweet and in a Washington Post op-ed, appeared to downplay the “significant concerns” cited in the report over the bureau’s efforts to seek the highly controversial FISA warrant to monitor former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page in the early months of the investigation. The IG probe identified at least 17 “significant inaccuracies and omissions” in the Page applications and said a new audit into the FISA process would take place.

“Although it took two years, the truth is finally out,” Comey wrote in his op-ed.

There is a reason why Inspector General Horowitz was reticent to blatantly declare the existence of political bias in the upper echelon of the FBI in his report.

As President Trump once stated, He is an “Obama Guy”.

Let’s look at the IG’s history.

  • He received his Juris Doctor from Harvard, where he was taught by the likes of upstanding individuals like Barney Franks.
  • Horowitz worked in DOJ from 1991 to 2002. In the early 1990s, he worked for former fired FBI Director Comey while the two of them were in the Southern District of New York.
  • He worked from 2002 to 2012 as a partner at Cadwalader, Wickersham, & Taft LLP, where he specialized in on white-collar defense, internal investigations, and regulatory compliance.
  • Horowitz was nominated by President Obama in July 2011 to be Inspector General of the DOJ.
  • He has been Inspector General since starting in 2012 under the Obama Administration.

Yes, gentle readers. He worked for Comey in the Southern District of New York.

That’s why he did not go after Comey as roughly as he could (or should) have.

To this day, there is no evidence that he ordered any sort of inspection into AG Lynch’s meeting with Former President Bill Clinton on a tarmac in 2016 and then a week later when Hillary Clinton was given a pass by crooked FBI Director Comey.

In fact, we don’t know that the IG looked into any number of Obama era crimes and corrupt actions.

It appears that as far as he and his boss, President Barack Hussein Obama were concerned, Obama did indeed have a “Scandal-Free Administration”

However, we know that was not the case.

The DOJ’s Southern District of New York Office has been the stomping grounds of several of those involved in this ongoing Legal Lynch Mob out to get President Trump, including Former FBI Director Comey, FBI IG Horowitz, Mueller Investigator Andrew Weissman, Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance, Jr, and Daniel Goldman, who appeared as an attorney for the Democrats in the House Judiciary Committee Impeachment Inquiry Hearing yesterday.

All of them either worked in that office or had judicial standing in that district.

Back on March 5, 2019, Breitbart.com reported that

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) announced on Tuesday that the House Intelligence Committee he chairs has hired Daniel Goldman to be a senior adviser and lead the committee’s investigative operations as it continues its probe into the President Donald Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with Russia.

Goldman, who frequently appears as a legal analyst on NBC and MSNBC, worked as Assistant United States Attorney in the Criminal Division of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York from 2007 and 2017, according to his bio on the Brennan Center for Justice, a George Soros-funded organization that recently named him a fellow in one of its programs.

For a long time, I have been stating that Spygate and the resulting failed Mueller Investigation, otherwise known as the Russian Collusion Fairy Tale, was like a giant spider’s web, leading back to the Obama Administration, during which the Deep State Operation to stop Donald J. Trump from becoming President began.

I also observed early on that the Southern District of New York was playing a major role in the Deep State’s Silent Coup, as well.

Even the late, great novelist Tom Clancy could not dream of a treasonous plot to depose of a sitting President which runs so deep within our own government and which has so many moving parts.

As the late, great Leonard Nimoy as Mr. Spock used to observe,

Fascinating.

…and horrifying.

Graham on Russian Collusion Delusion and Upcoming IG Report: “Was President Obama Briefed…I’d Like to Know That”…So Would We

694940094001_6074144830001_6074155861001-vs

Regarding the origin of the Russian Collusion Delusion, the real story all along has been the extent of the participation of the Obama Administration in its origin.

FoxNews.com reports that

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., is adamant about revealing what went on behind the scenes of the Russia investigation and is looking forward to the American people learning about what happened.

Graham pointed to three investigations of the investigators that are taking place: one by his committee; one by Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham, who was appointed by Attorney General Bill Barr to conduct a probe; and one by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz.

“I believe the Horowitz report will be ugly and damning,” Graham told Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures.” That report has been anticipated for months, but it has faced delays in recent months.

“Every time you turn around you find something new,” Graham explained. “Mr. Horowitz is doing a very in-depth dive” into the FBI’s use of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) to acquire a warrant to monitor former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. Graham predicted that the report will finally come out in the coming weeks.

Another man linked to the early stages of the investigation — former Trump campaign member George Papadopoulos — is eager to tell his side of the story after serving a brief sentence for providing a false statement to investigators. Papadopoulos is said to have brought about the investigation by revealing to an Australian diplomat (who later alerted U.S. officials) that he had information that Russia had damaging information about Hillary Clinton. This was after he heard about this from Maltese professor Joseph Mifsud.

Graham said that once Horowitz’s IG report comes out, he would like Papadopoulos to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Graham believes that, based on interview transcripts, Papadopolous was “clearly” not working with Russians.

The more information that gets declassified, the better, according to Graham.

“I want to declassify as much as possible … I don’t want people to believe what I said, I want them to read for themselves how bad it was,” he declared. Graham claimed that the FBI relied on the dossier compiled by Christopher Steele when they applied for the FISA warrant, despite Steele being “an unreliable informant” who hated President Trump.

“I want it all out, I want people to see how off the rails this investigation got, and I want people to be held accountable, and I am patient,” he said. “I’m not in a hurry to do it, I want to do it right.”

Graham also expressed a desire to find out just who was ultimately responsible for the Russia investigation, saying he is “curious about the role the CIA played here.” He also questioned whether it went all the way to the top.

“Who knew about this in the White House?” he wondered. “Was President Obama briefed … I’d like to know that.”

There is a very good reason for Senator Graham to be suspicious about Former President Obama’s involvement in the origin of the Russian Collusion Delusion: Obama’s history of Chicago Style Political Dirty Tricks.

Several years ago, during his presidency, I wrote an unofficial biography of Barack Hussein Obama titled “The Great Disconnect: The Whole, Ugly Truth About Barack Hussein Obama”. Here is an excerpt which is pertinent to the above article.

In 2004, Illinois State Senator Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) decided to run for The United States Senate.

In order to have a successful Senatorial campaign, Scooter had to secure tremendous financial backing and be the recipient of astute political mentoring. No problem.

It is now very well-known that George Soros, evil genius, major Democratic Party donor and anti-Israel crusader, has been a generous contributor to Barack Obama. However, not too many people know that a loophole in McCain-Feingold allowed Soros and his family members to be extremely generous in their support of Obama’s 2004 Senatorial campaign.

Obama had to run against Blair Hull in the primary and then Jack Ryan in the general (both multi-millionaires). Obama received huge donations from individuals, due to so-called “millionaires exception.” Usually, individuals are limited to giving $2300 to candidates in federal elections, but if the candidates are running against millionaires, these limits do not apply and candidates are allowed to receive up to $12,000 from a single individual. Soros and his family gave Barack Obama $60,000. This does not count the money that Soros funneled to so-called 527 groups (Moveon.org, for example) that have also been politically active; nor does it include money that Soros raised from tapping a network of friends, business associates, and employees.

Besides garnering unlimited campaign funds, as the campaigns entered their closing rounds, the news ”happened to be” leaked to media outlets that both Hull and Ryan had “personal scandals” in their past. The timely release of this news wiped out both of their campaigns, leading to an easy victory for Obama in the primary and then in the general election.

The New York Times Magazine revealed that David Axelrod, Obama’s chief political and media adviser, may well have been behind the leak of the story that doomed the Hull candidacy as the primary reached its home stretch. I’m shocked.

As he has shown over the years, Axelrod was right at home operating in this gray area, part idealist, part hired muscle. One can not bring up Axelrod’s name in certain circles in Chicago without the matter of the Blair Hull divorce papers coming up. Approaching the 2004 Senate primary, it was clear that it was a two-man race: the millionaire liberal, Hull, leading in the polls, and Obama, who was the figurehead of an impressive grass-roots campaign. One month before the vote, The Chicago Tribune “just happened” to reveal, at the end of a long profile of Hull, that during a divorce proceeding, Hull’s second wife filed for an order of protection. This revelation proceeded to erupt into a full-fledged scandal. This scandal destroyed Hull’s campaign and handed Obama an easy primary victory.

The Tribune reporter who wrote the story later admitted in print that the Obama camp had “worked aggressively behind the scenes” to push the story. However, a lot of folks in Chicago believe that Axelrod leaked the initial story. They will tell you that before signing on with Obama, Axelrod interviewed with Hull. They also point out that Obama’s TV ad campaign just happened to start at almost the same time. Axelrod swears up and down that “we had nothing to do with it” and that the campaign’s television ad schedule was in the works for a long time.

Axlerod’s explanation?

An aura grows up around you, and people assume everything emanates from you.

After Obama won the Primary, he was invited to deliver a speech at the 2004 Democratic Convention on July 27th in Boston, Massachusetts.

As the result of the now-legendary speech, Out of Many, One, Obama rose to national prominence, and his speech is regarded by Liberal pundits as one of the great political statements of the 21st century. This speech thrust Obama into the national spotlight, and sycophants crowned him the new political prince of the Liberal Elite.

And, that led to an 8 year long American Nightmare, the Obama Presidency.

Since the kinky days of J. Edgar Hoover, the hierarchy of the FBI have run clandestine investigations of public figures, both political and cultural leaders.

J. Edgar did it to hold onto his office and to have political leverage against his enemies, as he had skeletons in his own closet…and dresses, too.

But, I digress.

In the case of “Spygate” and the Russian Collusion Delusion, the Hierarchy of both the Department of Justice and the FBI did it to circumvent the will of the American People via the “overthrow” of a sitting president, thereby installing Hillary Clinton as the 45th President, thus protecting the status quo in the Halls of Power in Washington, DC.

Senator Graham is right to be suspicious. Sitting President Barack Hussein Obama knew every detail of the Deep State Operation to spy on his Presidential Campaign and when that failed, to sabotage his presidency.

He had to.

He was the boss of all those who were involved in it.

And, he had a “legacy” to protect.

Still, despite all of their unfathomable behavior and the cover of a Former President, they have failed.

The Washington Bureaucratic Elite were beaten on November 8, 2016 by the very people whom they had daily been looking down their noses with contempt during the Obama Administration: average Americans…those of us who voted for “Citizen Statesman” Donald J. Trump.

And, that I am sure, is what galls them the most.

All of those involved, including Former President Barack Hussein Obama, must be brought to justice and must face the consequences of their Seditious Conspiracy both before and after the election of the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump.

With IG Report #2 On The Way, It’s Time For Mueller To “Put Up or Shut Up”

 

bad-cops-600a-ci

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1007278701996802048

LMTOnline.com reports that

…The clamor over the watchdog’s findings was the latest turn in the GOP’s increasingly hostile and preemptive offensive against Mueller’s expected report on the president’s conduct. And the furor is almost tailor-made for Trump, who throughout his career has clutched onto small details and controversy as weapons he uses to define his enemies and erode trust in institutions.

Particularly notable, from the perspective of Trump’s allies, was the searing criticism in the report reserved for the conduct of one of Trump’s most high-profile critics, former FBI director James Comey, as well as the revelation that lead FBI agent Peter Strzok had shown anti-Trump bias. “We’ll stop it,” Strzok wrote in a text message, referring to Trump’s presidential campaign.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the report “reaffirmed the president’s suspicions about Comey’s conduct and about the political bias of some members of the FBI.”

On Capitol Hill, there was an outcry. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., a Trump ally, said on Thursday he would support a new federal probe of Mueller’s special counsel investigation. “You’re going to need independent eyes,” he told reporters.

Democrats, as they have for months, sought to defend the sanctity of the special counsel’s inquiry. They said Mueller’s mission should not be attacked because FBI agents behaved inappropriately.

“None of this reflects on the special counsel’s work,” said Rep. Adam Schiff, Calif., ranking Democrat of the House Intelligence Committee.

Republicans, however, sought to use the report to tarnish investigators.

Since the Strzok text message had not been previously disclosed to Congress, a number of Republicans immediately asked whether the Justice Department had purposefully hidden that missive from them.

Republican Reps. Andy Biggs, Ariz., Matt Gaetz, Fla., Ron DeSantis, Fla., – all Trump supporters – sent the Justice Department a letter Thursday demanding that the inspector general turn over all previous reports to see if “people may have changed the report in a way that obfuscates your findings.”

So, what is the “mission of the Special Counsel and his “13 angry Democrats”, Rep. Schiff?

Wasn’t the Russia Probe formed to find evidence of Russian interference on behalf of the Trump Campaign in the 2016 Presidential Election?

Well, the House Investigative Committee has already ruled that there was no collusion.

And, Special Counsel Mueller has stated that President Trump is not a target in the investigation.

So, what is the purpose of the Special Council and his Lynch Mob’s continued existence?

Is it to find something…ANYTHING…with which to impeach the 45th President of the United States of America…simply because Americans in “Flyover Country” elected him as President instead of “The Chosen One II”, Hillary Clinton?

Or, is the purpose of the Investigation simply to provide enough interference so that Trump cannot fulfill his Campaign Promises and will be seen as a failed President, ensuring a Democratic Victory in 2020?

Well, considering the enormous success of his first 500 days in office, I think you’ve got about as much chance succeeding at ever of those as Rosie O’Donnell has of being on the front cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition (try unseeing that).

So, Rep. Shiff, considering that only a minority of Americans supported Mueller’s Investigation before the IG’s Report and one of his investigators is one of those FBI Agents singled out for possible legal consequences, and with the IG Report on the Russia Probe on the horizon, don’t you think that it is time for Special Counsel Mueller to “put up or shut up”?

Lord knows, us “rubes” out here in “Flyover Country” certainly do.

IG Report “Appearance of Bias”…Why Horowitz Was Soft on Comey

untitled (246).png

This could end up being the worst thing that could happen to the Democrats and their electoral chances. This is gonna rev people up and it’s gonna keep ’em involved and in the game as just another bit of evidence of why the swamp needs to be drained. Now, that’s a premature comment based on the fact that I haven’t read this whole thing yet. It’s kind of a prediction based on an “if” it contains what is said to be a soft cover-up. It may not be. – Rush Limbaugh, 6/14/18

Yesterday was a special day. Not only was it President Donald J. Trump’s 72nd birthday, but it was also the day that the long-awaited IG Report on the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton E-mail Scandal was made public.

Per Gregg Re of FoxNews.com, the seven key takeaways from the FBI Inspector General’s report on the Hillary Clinton E-mail Scandal are:

1. New texts between FBI lovers Strzok and Page were ‘disappointing’ and cast a shadow over the integrity of the entire Clinton email probe.

2. Five unnamed FBI employees — including one lawyer who later worked on the Mueller probe — are under scrutiny for anti-Trump bias.

3. Investigators didn’t give a good reason for not pursuing laptops and cellphones belonging to Clinton’s senior aides.

4.  Despite Clinton connections, former Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik and former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe didn’t fully recuse themselves.

5. ‘Insubordinate’ Ex-FBI Director James Comey repeatedly violated policy and inaccurately described the legal situation surrounding Clinton’s emails.

6. Former Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch made errors in judgment during the Clinton probe.

7. FBI agents’ actions surrounding the DOJ/FBI interview of Hillary Clinton were ‘inappropriate’ and created appearance of bias.

An “appearance of bias”?

Correction: a REALITY of bias.

There is a reason why Inspector General Horowitz was reticent to blatantly declare the existence of political bias in the upper echelon of the FBI:

As President Trump once stated, He is an “Obama Guy”.

Let’s look at the IG’s history.

  • He received his Juris Doctor from Harvard, where he was taught by the likes of upstanding individuals like Barney Franks.
  • Horowitz worked in DOJ from 1991 to 2002. In the early 1990s, he worked for former fired FBI Director Comey while the two of them were in the Southern District of New York.
  • He worked from 2002 to 2012 as a partner at Cadwalader, Wickersham, & Taft LLP, where he specialized in on white-collar defense, internal investigations, and regulatory compliance.
  • Horowitz was nominated by President Obama in July 2011 to be Inspector General of the DOJ.
  • He has been Inspector General since starting in 2012 under the Obama Administration.

Yes, gentle readers. He worked for Comey in the Southern District of New York.

That’s why he did not go after Comey as roughly as he could (or should) have.

And, as you read above, one of those who have been recommended for investigation, worked on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Staff in the ongoing Russia Probe.

These “ties that bind” are most definitely not “blessed”.

They are corrupt.

As the rapidly escalating unraveling of the “Russia Probe” falsehood has demonstrated, the professional bureaucrats who served in the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the Obama Administration were more interested in serving their bosses than in the cause of justice.

No only did they know of Hillary’s  cavalier treatment of top-secret e-mails, they also knew that she used the Clinton Foundation as her and Bubba’s very own “Laundromat”, “cleaning up” copious donations from foreign powers who sought favorable treatment from the State Department under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

It is now very apparent that the corruption ran so deep in the Halls of Power during this time that they were all standing on their tiptoes trying to see above it.

It is also apparent that the DOJ and the FBI had no interest in investigating Hillary, as they were too busy playing footsie with Christopher Steele, Cody Shearer, and Richard Blumenthal in their mission to knock Donald J. Trump out of the Race for the Presidency.

While IG Horowitz did his best not to overtly condemn those in power in the FBI during the Obama Administration, he certainly did expose their corruption and political bias for all the world to see.
