  • FBI head proves Washington has a vendetta against Trump

    As FBI director Christopher Wray started giving his response to the blistering report on the Hillary Clinton investigation, I hoped he would accept the findings as proof the agency lost its way and must be shaken to its foundation. By the time he finished talking, I felt ­naive for daring to hope. Wray’s performance was worse than disappointing. It was infuriating proof that it will take more than one election to change the corrupt culture of Washington.

    And they won’t be solved by whining about criticism. hat do you do with an FBI agent, sworn to uphold the law, who flagrantly violates the law in a rogue investigation aimed at making a name for himself by bringing down some high-profile targets? Why . . . you promote him, of course. At least that is the way the Justice Department answered that question in the case of David Chaves, an FBI agent who serially and lawlessly leaked grand-jury information, wiretap evidence, and other sensitive investigative intelligence to the media in his quest to make an insider-trading case against...

    Ben Shapiro read the 528 page IG Report and breaks it down into 12 points. (My synopsis of video below.) 12 Points from the IG Report 1 Strzok and Page, FBI paramours, texted openly about stopping Trump. 2 James Comey concluded in Spring 2016 that he would let Hillary Clinton off, months before his July news conference. 3 Comey’s original statement exonerating Clinton was changed in many ways. 4 Comey is an absolute glory hound. 5 They watered down the law to exonerate Clinton. 6 FBI executives knew about Hillary’s e-mails on Weiner laptop in September 2016 but didn’t release...

    Public works projects surrounding the proposed Obama Presidential Center will cost taxpayers nearly $200 million, according to a report published Saturday. The state of Illinois approved a $224 million budget, allotting $174 million for road work around the presidential center and an additional $50 million to renovate an above-ground railway station two miles away from the center, according to a report from the Washington Examiner.

    Exodus 15:6 Thy right hand, O Lord, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O Lord, hath dashed in pieces the enemy. America no longer is a free country. As long as we have an absolutely corrupt FDNC-BI we are going to be harassed and blackmailed into submission as the Inspector General’s report proves. Of course, like any good DNC activist would do, he played word games to make the Dinosaur Media happy. The report has nothing here to see folks, but when you get into it the evidence is overwhelming. The FBI is nothing but a wing of...

    The FBI brass must have needed hazmat suits to scrub DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on agency misconduct around the 2016 elections. The result of their mighty exertions is something like 500 pages of pasteurized tofu. I will be surprised if a new scandal does not erupt over exactly how the scrubbing went down, and I wouldn’t count out the possibility of the original unscrubbed report emerging from deep inside the FBI itself. You have to wonder how embarrassed Mr. Horowitz is, and whether he, or others seeking to defend his integrity, might do anything about it. In any...

Sean Davis ‏ Verified account @seanmdav Following Following @seanmdav More Obama knew about Hillary's secret e-mail scheme, because she e-mailed him using her private address "while in the territory of a foreign adversary."

  • The Silencing of the Inspectors General

    06/14/2018 8:14:05 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 66 replies ^ | June 14, 2018 | Victor Davis Hanson
    Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz, an Obama administration appointee, is scheduled to deliver a report this week on DOJ and FBI abuses during the 2016 campaign cycle. Remember: His last investigation of FBI misconduct advised a criminal referral for fired former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who allegedly lied to federal investigators. McCabe and at least a half-dozen other FBI employees quit, retired, were fired or were reassigned as a result of fallout from the politicization of the FBI. Yet, as Barack Obama left office, his chief of staff, Denis McDonough, strangely boasted that the Obama administration "has...

    FBI Attorney 2 was assigned to the Midyear investigation early in 2016. FBI Attorney 2 was not the lead FBI attorney assigned to Midyear and he told us he provided support to the investigation as needed. FBI Attorney 2 told us that he was also assigned to the investigation into Russian election interference and was the primary FBI attorney assigned to that investigation beginning in early 2017. FBI Attorney 2 told us that he was then assigned to the Special Counsel investigation once it began. FBI Attorney 2 left the Special Counsel’s investigation and returned to the FBI in late...

    Fired former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) director James Comey used a private email account for government business while he was supposedly investigating Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email account and server for government business. Comey also deleted his Gmail messages. This revelation comes courtesy of the Michael Horowitz inspector general report, which finally came out Thursday after a long round of editing by some of the people named in the report. “We identified numerous instances in which Comey used a personal email account (Gmail account) to conduct FBI business. We cite five examples of such use in...

    I called the Mark Levin show. The call screener politely said, "What's on your mind? I was upset that Mark was calling the tickets to sporting events and shows "gifts" which were given to the leakers. IMHO, they were bribes. The screener said that unless Sessions or Trump enables a special prosecutor, and there is an indictment and conviction, there is no crime, so it is a gift. Then I presented my theory that Trump is the classic good cop, and Sessions is giving him cover for doing nothing by being the bad cop. We are being played. The screener...

    FBI agent Peter Strzok emailed the draft copy of the Anthony Weiner search warrant to himself on his private email address days before the election, which allowed him to make changes to the warrant without being detected by FBI documentation. This revelation came out in the Michael Horowitz inspector general report. If Strzok had printed out the draft warrant at his office, it would be subject to official FBI records. But instead he sent it to his private email on October 29, which allowed him to print it off at home. Insiders believe that Strzok showed the draft warrant...
  • Justice Department watchdog to release report on FBI decisions on Clinton probe

    The U.S. Justice Department’s internal watchdog will release a long-awaited report on Thursday on the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email probe that she said contributed to her 2016 presidential election loss to Republican Donald Trump. The report by Inspector General Michael Horowitz, which will be released at 2 p.m. (1800 GMT), arose from a review he launched about a week before Trump took office in January 2017. The inquiry has focused on whether former FBI Director James Comey’s public statements about the bureau’s probe of Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of state were based...

    To paraphrase Napoleon's "secrets travel fast in Paris," secrets travel fast in D.C., as we learned this week with the indictment of James A. Wolfe, a 30-year veteran staffer of the Senate Intelligence Committee indicted for lying to the FBI about leaking to, among others, his former paramour, Ali Watkins, an NYT reporter. On December 15th, according to the indictment, the FBI investigators were aware of four specific journalists, "reporters", who participated in the leak material. The FBI likely had more to choose from, but selected those four reporters – with specific intents and purposes – during the interview with...

    After a lengthy meeting in which representatives of the FBI met with Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) and Senate Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr (R-NC) and explained why they had to infiltrate and spy on the Trump campaign, both congressmen agreed "it was the proper thing to do." "Before I came to congress I was a prosecutor in South Carolina," Gowdy said. "There were numerous instances where I worked with the FBI to bring down dangerous criminals. That built a bond of trust that I could rely on in the pursuit of justice. When they told...

The records included information about the friends of Facebook users, including phone numbers and analysis of the degrees of separation between people, according to a Wall Street Journal report. Facebook acknowledged the information was given to a “small number” of companies including RBC Capital Markets, Nissan, advertisers and other business partners.
