Attorney General Jeff Sessions Confirms
Prior Appointment of “DOJ Prosecutor”
to Parallel IG Horowitz, NOT a Special Counsel…

Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 3/8/2018 6:46:35 AM

There has been a great deal of consternation, directed toward AG Jeff Sessions surrounding the ongoing FISA abuse scandal and the larger issues of unlawful DOJ and FBI conduct in their political investigation of candidate Donald Trump. It is a matter of great division amid people who follow the details. That said, AG Jeff Sessions revealed tonight in an interview with Shannon Bream, that he previously appointed a DOJ official to investigate the issues delivered by Chairman Bob Goodlatte (House Judiciary), prior to receiving the request for a Special Counsel from Chairman Goodlatte and Trey Gowdy.

Concern about IG Horowitz’s just “investigating” is addressed here:

#1) The DOJ Inspector General (Michael Horowitz) has an obligation to notify his superiors when he/she discovers illegal activity, or conduct that is likely unlawful, while conducting an internal investigation. The IG cannot sit on knowledge or evidence of likely criminal conduct, just because he/she is conducting an investigation. This is the same reason why IG Horowitz had to inform Special Counsel Robert Mueller in July of 2017 of the potentially unlawful conduct of members on his team (Lisa Page and Peter Strzok).

FTA "It is likely the final investigative summary from the Department of Justice, Office of Inspector General (DOJ-OIG), Michael Horowitz, is going to be very encompassing. It is also likely to be immediately followed-up by actions, perhaps immediate indictments, from the DOJ Prosecutor who Jeff Sessions brought in from outside Washington.
There is no need for a “Special Counsel” when a DOJ Prosecutor is already working with IG Horowitz. The “outside prosecutor” can begin issuing subpoenas for Grand Jury testimony and statements by the officials no longer within the DOJ/FBI, just as soon as the IG report is finished." Amen hope this is true!

It´s a long hard slog to read but if the above is true then Praise God! Also Godspeed to whoever that DOJ prosecutor is. Hope and pray He/She is not connected to the swamp!

I think this is the reason Trey Gowdy is leaving Congress. He just might be the ´outside of Washington´ prosecutor once he leaves. Gowdy just might get to sink his teeth into this instead of stupid Congressional hearing that produce nothing but grand standing political jousting.
This is slow motion because you don´t go after a whale in a rubber boat with a sharp stick and hope to land it. Detail and plenty of evidence is required for something this huge as CTH has laid out.

I have a brain ache, trying to wrap it around all of the excellent Sundance evaluations.
(Judge Andrew Napolitano has been saying that it would be a terrible breech of procedure for the IG to say anything prior to the conclusion of his investigation. I thought the judge was wrong about that when he said it.)
There is something that must be done quickly. Herr Mueller and his gestapo agents must be ordered to NOT give immunity to anyone involved in this mess, and the warning must be done publicly. If Sessions or Rosenstein don´t do that, Herrr Mueller could give himself, his gestapo agents, and the top people at FBI and Justice, immunity, as the case sours like yesterday´s milk. Herr Mueller could also immunize Barack, Rhodes, and a bunch of other democrats.
One more time, I plead for a Lakerman Commission. Lady Justice requires it.

If only he were still just a senator!!!
It´s time the President fires this man. I am beginning to wonder if the FBI has something on him.
Why is it that Sessions recused himself so speedily and Rosenstein contacted Mueller at once, who was begging for the job.
Rosenstein is the one, who asked for a FISA warrant whilst the new president was already in office!
Rosenstein added the clause ´all other´ to the Special counsel ´Russian collusion´ investigation.
It took only minutes and Rosenstein had appointed a Special Counsel.
Now we are looking at real crimes committed and Sessions is taking the advice of his minder, Rosenstein, NOT to appoint a Special Counsel.
Rosenstein needs to be investigated. The dumb little elf Sessions needs to go, NOW!

It sure is a LOT to process but if I am reading this correctly, Sessions is proceeding VERY carefully and strictly according to LAW to bring these people to justice. The IG has been working with a prosecutor who will be ready, when the IG releases his findings, to immediately proceed with prosecutions. The whole thing is being kept under wraps because that is SUPPOSED TO BE how investigations are carried out.

If this is true, this will be GREAT!

Consider that the supposeded level of cooperation is only 2 levels below Lynch and Comey. Yates was fired and McCabe has resigned, leaving no standing officials between Lynch or Comey´s involvement.

The intensity of Comey, Yates, and people like Brennan´s recent attacks on Trump sure make it appear they are worried about something. They may know about the existence of the prosecutor even though they have no vision into the process. Their spies and sycophants are eliminated or under investigation themselves. The noose is tightening. The potential impact could be tremendous. Mueller´s petty partisan games will pale in significance and he could be completely invalidated by his association with some of the players.

We will see.

Session´s status as hero or goat will depend on the outcome. As to the rest, Trump may not know details to preserve the integrity of the investigation but he probably knows something is afoot. Trump loves to draw his opponents in and then watch them sliced and diced when they fall on their own swords. It will be interesting to see it play out.

Effectively the "Second Special Council" has actually been in place for some time, working with IG Horowitz, and ENTIRELY under the radar, without the Enemedia joggling his elbow or screaming "political witch hunt!´ every day. Having NBC, ABC,CBS, MSNBC,PBS et al unaware of your existence is no doubt a blessing.

Mueller is an appendix, and nothing burger, going nowhere, finding nothing, chasing BS shadows from a decade ago that have no bearing on anything in the election.

Mueller is a fool, and may actually be starting to understand that he has been handed an empty gunny sack and taken out in the woods with a flashlight, and is, even today, with his team of "crack investigators", calling out "Here snipe! Here snipe!" will holding up his gunny sack.

Meantime, away from the prying, lying eyes of the idiots in the Enemedia, the investigation has been well underway for at least 8 or 9 months, probably more like a year.

It would be nice if posters actually read the article before commenting.

#12.. I think you have it pretty well nailed down correctly. At least as far as I can read it anyway. Of course none of us know all that is happening, and we shouldn´t. Yet But there are people that are far more astute with how these IGs and prosecutors work that do know, and Sundance seems to have the best reporting going on it all.

I´m disappointed it´s not a Must Read, because there is so much great information that is verified in all his posts. Whomever his sources are... they have to be pretty close to the subject at hand. Just sayin´

My understanding by statements from Trey & Chaffetz etc the IG cannot investigate people who no longer employed in the JD, he can only investigate current employees ...McCabe Lynch Comey Obama Yates Brennan Clapper are no longer employed....Sessions should be aware of this & allow a special council since he is the only one who has the authority.... or maybe he can ask his boss Rosenstein to appoint a special council or a grand jury.

FBI disciplinary office recommends firing

Washington Post, by Matt Zapotosky    Original Article

The FBI office that handles employee discipline has recommended firing the bureau’s former deputy director over allegations that he authorized the disclosure of sensitive information to a reporter and misled investigators when asked about it — though Justice Department officials are still reviewing the matter and have not come to a final decision, a person familiar with the case said. The recommendation from the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility is likely to add fuel to the political fire surrounding former deputy director Andrew McCabe, who abruptly stepped down from his post earlier this year but technically remained an FBI employee.

Trump last Friday asked Tillerson to step aside, and the embattled diplomat cut short his trip to Africa on Monday to return to Washington.

30 states to 20 in the presidential race. 22-12 in the Senate. 241-194 in the House. President Donald John Trump led Republicans to a shellacking of the Democratic Party not seen in 60 years. Not since Ike won re-election in 1956 had Republicans done as well. Nixon, Reagan, and Bush 41 never held the House. Bush 43 had all three but failed to win as many seats. No, this was a major schlonging of a party that is as outdated and as out of touch as the Whigs. They blamed Russian interference -- meddling -- for their loss.

Rigid sexual orientations have defined the preference of men and women for decades; however, a new study is attempting to do away with strict definitions of sexuality. The study, published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, argues that there’s no such thing as a “straight” man or woman. Rather, people operate on a spectrum. Researchers showed men and women different kinds of pornographic material. Rather than relying on self-reporting, the study looked at physiological responses to the sexual material. Namely pupil dilation, which is a sign of sexual arousal. The study found that women’s eyes dilated when they viewed a man and

She´ll be the first woman to head the clandestine agency if the Senate confirms her nomination. The nomination is expected to ruffle feathers, however, given her past assignments.
