    The Washington Times ^ | October 25, 2018 | Jeff Mordock
    Roughly one year after U.S. Attorney John Huber was appointed to investigate whether accusations that the FBI and Justice Department abused their powers during the 2016 election season merit prosecution, his work remains shrouded in mystery. Likely witnesses tell The Washington Times that they havenít heard from him, though they are eager to tell what they know. Nor has Mr. Huber kept congressional overseers in the loop on his activities. ďI would just like to know what heís doing,Ē Rep. Jim Jordan, Ohio Republican, told The Times. ďIíll take anything. All I know is that we havenít heard a single...

    II. Recommendations For these reasons, and as more fully described in previous chapters, we recommend the following: 1. The Department and the FBI consider developing practice guidance that would assist investigators and prosecutors in identifying the general risks with and alternatives to permitting a witness to attend a voluntary interview of another witness, in particular when the witness is serving as counsel for the other witness. 2. The Department consider making explicit that, except in situations where the law requires or permits disclosure, an investigating agency cannot publicly announce its recommended charging decision prior to consulting with the Attorney General,...

    The Department of Justice Office of Inspector General review of DOJ and FBI conduct in the Clinton investigation has been ongoing for over 17 months. Thatís a long time for a single investigation, and with good reason. The scale of the misconduct is staggering. John Spiropoulos, a former TV news reporter at WJLA, the ABC affiliate in Washington, DC, has created a series of video reports as a reminder on the background on the crime, the coverup and the corruption. Hereís the series:

    Things are proceeding swimmingly. How is it possible to outline the biggest political corruption scandal in modern U.S. history; which utilized the full weight of the institutions of government and the vast intelligence community; against the predictable tide of a mainstream U.S. media apparatus who will shout Ďconspiracy theoryí; while every single entity associated with the collaborative effort will protect the group behind the scandal? Thereís the challenge. How do you introduce the scale and scope of corruption to almost half the country who have relied upon the false narrative delivered by fake news for the past two years?

Things like that sometimes happen when skill and determination beat odds-makers and reputation. I'm talking about the firing of Andrew McCabe, who doubtless acted under the impression that rigging things at the FBI for Hillary Clinton was the path to higher office and glory. Late Friday night, McCabe, the former deputy director and then acting director of the FBI, was fired by Attorney General Jeff Sessions in a statement that reads as follows: ~snip~...
