    Republicans have a plan to oust embattled Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein "on Friday" as part of a concerted effort to "undermine" the Russia probe, Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee claimed in a surprise outburst that brought a congressional hearing to a temporary halt on Tuesday. The House Judiciary and Oversight committees were questioning Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz over his bombshell report into FBI and DOJ misconduct during the Hillary Clinton email probe. As Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, questioned Horowitz, Jackson Lee of Texas repeatedly interrupted and asked permission from Oversight Committee Chair Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., for permission...

    Congressional Hearings ^ | 6/19/18 | Self
    Okay, so I'm watching the congressional hearings this morning. They are questioning IG Horowitz. At 12:35 PM EDT, maybe 2 hours in, Rep Jordan is questioning Horowitz. At that point Shirley Jackson Lee interrupts with "Parliamentary procedure" question. It's not of course...it's an attempt to make a political point. BUT she says, and I quote "and as well to fire Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein which they’re planning to do on Friday” They certainly seemed, in the investigation that makes the case that Rosenstein should be fired. Somebody else want to confirm?

    The OIG is infected by a far more dangerous disease than political bias — fear. The Justice Department’s tepid OIG report, with its risible assertion that there was no political bias in the FBI’s Clinton email probe, suggests that it was written by people afraid to tell the unvarnished truth about the conduct of the federal government’s police apparatus, an agency that openly defies congressional oversight and has participated in a vendetta against a sitting president. The FBI’s leadership clearly hopes that the Democrats will win majorities in Congress and put a halt to the investigations into its multifarious abuses...

    American Thinker ^ | June 19, 2018 | Monica Showalter
    In a way, the inspector general's report on FBI behavior during the 2016 election sort of resembles the conclusions James Comey drew as he closed the email case on Hillary Clinton, filing no charges: baffling. How can a 500-page report that contains so much politically damaging material somehow lead its authors to conclude that there was "no political bias" in anything the FBI did in that time period? After the insane, power-mad posts FBI chief counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok made to his married girlfriend at the time, attorney Lisa Page? Or the boiling left-wingery of maybe five other FBI agents,...

    A joint committee from House Ove rsight and House Judiciary are conducting a hearing today at 10:00am EDT with DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz. Unlike the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday the House team has representatives far more knowledgeable of the issues. Hopefully, expertise will deliver better questions. Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte has direct primary oversight authority over the DOJ. Chairman Trey Gowdy comes from the aggregate Oversight/Reform Committee. Far more House members have read the 568-page IG report. Due to a better informed group of members we are more optimistic for detailed, specific, confrontational and challenging questions to draw...

    The Department of Justice's (DOJ) inspector general is investigating former FBI Director James Comey's handling of memos he wrote to memorialize his conversations with President Trump. DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz revealed the probe during testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday afternoon. He said Comey's memos are being investigated after the watchdog received a referral from the FBI and that the IG would release a report on its findings. “We received a referral on that from the FBI. We are handling that referral and we will issue a report when the matter is complete, consistent with the law...

    Stay here for live coverage of Horowitz's and Wray's appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee, which begins at 2 p.m. Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz and FBI Director Chris Wray are testifying Monday on a critical IG report that faulted the FBI for its actions during the 2016 presidential race. The report released last week found former FBI Director James Comey deviated from department norms with his decision-making, and criticized a senior counterintelligence agent for texts that revealed a bias against President Trump. The report found no evidence that political bias affected the FBI's decisions in its investigation...

    The FBI has managed to transform its image from Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., into Special Agent Boogaloo Shrimp, and the Inspector General’s report was the bureaucratic self-policing equivalent of Breakin’ Faith 2: Electric Bamboozle.Here’s the punchline: MC Hammered, who dropped his Glock and shot a dude whilst bustin’ a move, was one of those “top 5% of applicants” that zombie FBI Director Christopher Wray kept babbling about during his excuse conference following the report’s release. But that guy would not have even placed in competition for the title “Worst FBI Agent Ever” against the toadies, flunkies, and hacks the report highlights.During...

    NOTE: I am taking much of this from the Dan Bongino podcast "Episode 743: The Aftermath". I am listing these in the order he presents them. Here are EIGHT major points to take away from the Inspector General Report. It is wise to keep in mind that this report was NOT about spying on Trump, and it was NOT whether Hillary Clinton used an unauthorized private email server. This IG report was about the conduct of the FBI and the DOJ during the Hillary Clinton Email Scandal. We should keep in mind what this report is, and isn't. This may...

    Children of ILLEGAL immigrants have been seperated from their parents WHILE THE PARENTS WERE IN JAIL since 2002. Democrats, under Bush (the increasingly shrub-like) 2, passed this into law. It is 16 years old. Trump did not just start doing this. Obama did the same thing for 8 years. What suddently made this issue deserve 24/7 news coverage? NOTHING. Except as a means to distract from talking about the IG report.

    Thursday’s report on the Hillary Clinton email investigation by Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz was, as Canadian pop-punk degenerates Sum 41 might have put it, “All killer, no filler.” There were so many jaw-dropping moments of, “No, wait — FBI employees can’t do that, can they?” that it transformed an actual government report into a veritable page-turner. One of those minor gems, however, comes when you find out why the FBI didn’t investigate the Blackberries and other email devices of Hillary Clinton’s inner circle. “We found that the FBI team and the prosecutors decided together to generally limit...

    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...

    Former President Bill Clinton was “offended” by the widespread criticism of his June 2016 tarmac meeting with then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch days before the FBI decided it would not recommend criminal charges against his wife, he told the Justice Department’s inspector general. “I thought you know, I don’t know whether I’m more offended that they think I’m crooked or that they think I’m stupid,” Clinton told investigators, according to the report released Thursday by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz. The long-awaited report was released Thursday afternoon, spanning nearly 600 pages and scrutinizing the actions of numerous figures who played...

    Former FBI Director James Comey responded to a critical inspector general's report from the Department of Justice looking into the FBI's handling of the Clinton email probe, saying the conclusions were "reasonable" but that nothing in the report "makes me think we did the wrong thing." “I respect the DOJ IG office, which is why I urged them to do this review. The conclusions are reasonable, even though I disagree with some,” Comey tweeted, minutes after the report was released. “People of good faith can see an unprecedented situation differently. I pray no Director faces it again. Thanks to IG’s...

    This is from the conclusions part of the report. May not be as bad as some might think: “First, we found that several FBI employees who played critical roles in the investigation sent political messages—some of which related directly to the Midyear investigation—that created the appearance of bias and thereby raised questions about the objectivity and thoroughness of the Midyear investigation. Even more seriously, text messages between Strzok and Page pertaining to the Russia investigation, particularly a text message from Strzok on August 8 stating “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.” in response to a Page text “[Trump’s] not...
