When will the IG report come out....maybe on Christmas Day??
I’m not sure that I will live long enough to see it.
or Never If the deep state forces succeed.
There is a time-value to information, just as there is to money. The time value of money is so well known there are formulas to calculate it, and has to do with both lost opportunity cost and inflation, that is the devaluation of the currency over time.
Both of these apply to information as well. Knowing something sooner is often far more valuable than knowing it a little later. That's why (when they were still legitimate) reporters competed to get the scoop. And, that's why it's illegal to give some information to anyone earlier than you give it to everyone, as is the case with corporations and their financial filings.
And like money, the value of information often goes down over time, as newer information makes it obsolete.
Even if Horowitz and Barr were to rally and get the OIG Report on FISA abuse out this week, it is already considerably devalued over what it would have been worth in August or September, before the impeachment process was begun.
The Deep State is playing a very effective defense in dragging out the release further and further. But pushing out until now the MSM will be able to put forward that this is merely a response by "the embattled President and his loyal supporters" to the "impending impeachment in the House".
The value sinks further if it isn't released until after the vote, when we are in the midst of the sham Senate trial we seem destined to have to endure.
It will become much easier for the MSM to bury the story amid the drama of a Senate impeachment trial. I'm sure many others remember the Clinton impeachment fondly, as I do.
This is a superb article, an excellent demonstration of the method and benefits of close reading a text, and how to decipher clues in a text given what you know or can surmise about who wrote it and why.
Given the continuing delays releasing the IG report, I’ll bet that the House will vote to impeach first. Then ‘The Hammer’ drops on the Russia-gate conspirators.
Bottom line: The Deep State is still controlling the release of the report and has probably already essentially re-written sections of it.
The whole process is a total farse. Barr should be ashamed of himself for allowing this nonsense to go on and on and on...
How about this, the full votes to impeach and the IG reports no FISA abuse in that order. Place your bets.
Your poll should have these two choices instead.
1. The Senate votes to remove Donald Trump from office.
2. Anyone from the Small group or anyone else involved in the conspiracy against Trump goes to jail.
I think #1 is far more likely to happen than #2.
Even in the absence of the FISA report Barr could still release the FISA applications that Trump once ordered to be declassified. This political spying was a fraud perpetrated on the court and a grotesque violation of privacy. We have a right to see them.
I am becoming more and more suspect about Barr’s competence and integrity.
they should have released the report and had a supplemental to cover things recently found..this is not the warren report...
I'll put $10 to the FR Kitty on "Full House Votes..."
Let’s see.....the IG was appointed by Obama. So far nothing has come from any of the IG reports, zero.
Yet still people are waiting for arrests...that is too f’ing funny.
Get a grip, the report is being edited.
