Posted on 06/14/2018 11:27:59 AM PDT by DouglasKC
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, Deputy Attorney General, U.S. Attorney, or his or her designee, and cannot proceed without the approval of one of these officials.
3. The Department and the FBI consider adopting a policy addressing the appropriateness of Department employees discussing the conduct of uncharged individuals in public statements.
4. The Department consider providing guidance to agents and prosecutors concerning the taking of overt investigative steps, indictments, public announcements, or other actions that could impact an election.
5. The Office of the Deputy Attorney General consider taking steps to improve the retention and monitoring of text messages Departmentwide.
6. The FBI add a warning banner to all of the FBIs mobile phones and mobile devices in order to further notify users that they have no reasonable expectation of privacy.
7. The FBI consider (a) assessing whether it has provided adequate training to employees about the proper use of text messages and instant messages, including any related discovery obligations, and (b) providing additional guidance about the allowable uses of FBI devices for any non-governmental purpose, including guidance about the use of FBI devices for political conversations
8. The FBI consider whether (a) it is appropriately educating employees about both its media contact policy and the Departments ethics rules pertaining to the acceptance of gifts, and (b) its disciplinary provisions and penalties are sufficient to deter such improper conduct.
9. Department ethics officials consider implementing a review of campaign donations when Department employees or their spouses run for public office.
Oh, diversity training. That’ll fix it. The DOH-J fails yet again.
“The FBI add a warning banner to all of the FBIs mobile phones and mobile devices in order to further notify users that they have no reasonable expectation of privacy.”
IOWs don’t get caught.
Yep. And then some.
No one is surprised, here, of course.
No, recommendations as far as I know. It’s up to others to file charges.
It took 3-4 weeks to get this report approved?
6. The FBI add a warning banner to all of the FBI's mobile phones and mobile devices in order to further notify users that they have no reasonable expectation of privacy.
One of those should be all phones sold to the public too.
FBI .. "we promise to hide our bias better."
18 months, untold millions, 500 pages of BS and nobody is charged.
That’s about right for the liars, thieves and perverts that RULE us.
Soapbox - will get you arrested, if it’s the “wrong” speech.
Ballot box - stuffed with dead people and illegal voters.
Jury box - vile, detestable, untrustworthy, criminal.
One more box
From the report:
Although we found no evidence that Lynch and former
President Clinton discussed the Midyear investigation or
engaged in other inappropriate discussion during their
tarmac meeting, we also found that Lynchs failure to
recognize the appearance problem created by former
President Clintons visit and to take action to cut the
visit short was an error in judgment. We further
concluded that her efforts to respond to the meeting by
explaining what her role would be in the investigation
going forward created public confusion and did not
adequately address the situation.
No bias, no criminal behavior, no charges, prosecutions, convictions, and jail. NOPE, WE NEED A SPECIAL COUNSEL. ALWAYS DID. STILL DO.
I find this very interesting.
Here is my reccomendation.
Fire Sessions. Fire Rosenweasel.
This whitewash will do nothing to help 60 million Trump voters
regain trust in the DOJ and FBI.
Just the opposite.
“It took 3-4 weeks to get this report approved?”
Those bad actors mentioned had the report content pertinent to them for 3-4 weeks so they could lobby for changes which were incorporated. Yes - it all depends on who’s approval. It will be very interesting to see the original draft if it ever comes out.
I could not have possibly expressed it better myself. The only thing that could possibly added are the flies, maggots and steam rising on a cold day.
This took months? They should crawl under a rock in shame.
A complete nothing. Anyone counting on this OIG for anything is lost.
All he does is take whatever ridiculous explanation the department officials give and accept it.
