The long anticipated inspector general´s bombshell report on the Clinton email investigation is released today - and is expected to point blame at ´insubordinate´ James Comey. Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz released the report on Thursday, just in time for the President Trump´s 72nd birthday. Several top Justice Department and FBI officials are expected to come under scrutiny in the report, including Comey, then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch, former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe and FBI official Peter Strzok. The Justice Department said IG Horowitz will testify in a public hearing on June 18. House Judiciary Committee members will get their chance to

Anyone who signed those misleading FISA requests (including Sally [INSUBORDINATE B**CH] Yates), needs to be liable for an orange suit fitting, and join "crooked Hillary."

Frankly, I still anticipate a whitewash and cover-up. If I´m completely surprised, so much the better.

When an attorney is sworn in and admitted to practice before the Court, that attorney promises never to lie to the Court, and becomes an Officer of the Court..
Signing off on a false affidavit in support of a FISA warrant could be considered to be a violation of that promise, and is a deathly serious kind of misbehavior.

If I have learned one thing about Washington “Justice”, the powerful are protected and justice is elusive. I don’t expect much will come of this because of the nature of the beast that is Washington politics. When they can’t even reel in a power mad special prosecutor who has been literally abusing his power for two years, I don’t hold out much hope that any of the powerful will ever be held accountable. After these past two years, my cynicism meter is off the charts. The Republicans do not have the moral fortitude to see this through to its obvious legal conclusion and the democrats deny and defend any wrongdoing. I would love to be wrong and witness the guilty, despite their status, punished for their crimes. Not hopeful though.

Insubordination, you say? I´ll bet the penalty for that is a loss of privileges at the DOJ gym for a month. And it includes relinquishing your locker during that time, dammit!

Well, as least Hannity can continue to scream the phrase "BREAKING NEWS" for a while longer until this goes off the radar on about July 4th Eve.

What will be released today is the modified and redacted IG report, not the original work product by Horowitz. Ron Rosenstein, who is in the middle of all of this and should have been recused for conflict of interest, has been allowed to change the report. (Like Beaver changing his report card F into an A)

I want to see the real report!!!! And I want the House Judiciary Committee to ask Horowitz questions like, "Could you tell us what was removed from your report that was important?"

#2 We cannot settle for whitewash and cover-up from our government. They still represent us ... until the day comes that they flip this nation to socialism or the caliphate rule. Then we won´t be demanding anything....we´ll be begging for privileges.

"The result could be a flurry of written demands for public testimony – from Comey and former attorney general Loretta Lynch – and then even more explosive testimony in public from both former top-shelf Obama administration luminaries."

Wouldn´t be a hoot if the Judiciary House/Senate Committees subpoenaed Ex POTUS Obama for a grilling under oath? He´s a private citizen now and not privileged as is POTUS Trump is as POTUS?

Our federal government is driven from the very top to the very bottom by a go-along-to-get-along managerial value system.

The fastest way to end your career advancement as a federal employee is to identify any problem. To identify a problem is to imply that someone is at fault. And when you start pointing fingers, you end your career.

The VA managed to kill more than 100 Veterans in Arizona through criminal malfeasance, all for the purpose of securing management´s year-end bonuses. Name one person held accountable. Can´t, can you?

They´re now playing word games to pad statistics for processing disability compensation claims (it´s not a claim until the last month of it´s multi-year life, so all claims take one month to process!), and Congress yawns.

Probably the most noteworthy is the 9-11 report. Head´s rolled, didn´t they? Not. Three thousand Americans dead, and nobody lost their job.

I don´t see an end to this problem. It´s built into the system.

I´m sad to say, Horowitz´s investigation will suffer the same fate.

Pardon my cyncism, but I would bet that what Horowitz actually reports and what a REDACTED report states do no match, and unless the Press is suddenly willing to publicize what Horowitz actually concluded and reported, a lot will be swept under the rug. Plus, Hillary every getting more than the gentleist slap on a finger will not happen! WE would be in prison for a minimum of what Hill & Co and the FBI and Brennan et al did, but not these insiders!

Look, under Hillary´s watch as Obama´s Secretary of State, the State Department ´lost´ $6 Billion dollars and that taxpayer money was never recovered. Did anyone go to jail? Was anyone even charged with malfeasance or theft? Was there a serious investigation? Nope. Just more ´move along, nothing to see here´. And that´s just one example.

I´m not holding out for any bombshells in the IG´s report. It will be a whitewash after the DOJ and FBI redact, redact, redact.

It depends on how much the IG report was scrubbed that will determine if it is really a bombshell report. I doubt it will be. Since Obie appointed Horowitz, nothing to see here. If the pubbies surprise and revolt for a special prosecutor, then maybe I´ll be convinced.

With the way that things are going in Washington, at some time in the future (I don´t have a clue it will happen) this entire country is going to collapse. The governments of states and the federal government will collapse and won´t have any way to make things right. There are just too many people want to be at the top of something and far too much money that they can grab. Even in today, far too many law systems can´t keep cities safe. And those the "run" the cities and states in many of them really don´t want law keeping their places safe and crime free. It makes me sad. I just wish that another revolution were to happen soon and completely get rid of Washington D.C. and move the government to somewhere in the middle of the country. And start all over again. It would take a lot of time and hard work, but I think that it could be done.

This long-awaited and long-redacted/sanitized report is a complete, white-washed dud. Bloomberg has already quoted several key sections on both Comey and Strzok/Page, and the OIG´s statements are unbelievably counter-intuitive based on the evidence presented.

As an example:

It cites Lisa Page text to Peter Strzok: “(Trump’s) not ever going to become president, right? Right?!”

Strzok: “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.”

And yet the OIG says they were not being "political". Huh?! Wrap your head around that one.

We don´t need any more reports, we need gallows. Lots of them.

The New York Post, America’s finest daily newspaper, finds itself at odds, like the rest of the country, over the hottest issue of the moment – immigration. Even saying that is not so simple. Because we’re really talking about ILLEGAL immigration (50,000 each month) and unaccompanied alien children showing up by the thousands in search of asylum. The argument takes a nasty turn over the wisdom of separating kids from their parents. Some say this is cruel. The government says it’s the law. The Post says – “Stop breaking up families.” Faulting Trump, so runs its lead editorial to start the week. (Separating families,

Michelle Obama traded workout clothes for a chic suit as she went out to lunch in Los Angeles on Tuesday. The former first lady looked perfectly chic for her business lunch as she dined at the Gjelina restaurant in Venice. Michelle swapped out her usual jewel tones with a softer palate of pastels for the meeting. She opted for light green wide-leg trousers and a suit jacket done in matching green and black stripes, topping the look off with a simple white shirt and sandals. The former first lady also shielded her face with an oversized pair of pastel pink sunglasses

Richard Branson’s healthcare firm has pocketed £2million of public money by suing the NHS. Virgin Care took High Court action after losing out on an £82million contract to provide children’s medical services in Surrey. The work was handed to a rival group of in-house NHS providers and a social enterprise firm last year. Virgin Care claimed there were ‘serious flaws in the procurement process’ and secured an out-of-court settlement in November. Newly-released accounts show that six clinical commissioning groups and NHS England paid Virgin Care £1.565million. Surrey County Council handed over another £440,000 and at least £243,000 more was diverted

Donald Trump will lose another senior aide in just two weeks, as Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations Joe Hagin leaves the administration. Hagin, the president´s point-man on last week´s nuclear summit with North Korea´s dictator, made headlines for keeping Trump in the dark about key details negotiated in advance – so he couldn´t tweet them. He was left with egg on his face weeks earlier in Singapore, when the North Korean delegation scheduled to attend pre-summit meetings stood the American team up. But his final mark on Washington could be his link to key backers of an alleged cult known as NXIVM

Legalising cannabis risks making children believe it is safe, the head of the NHS warned yesterday. In a major intervention, Simon Stevens highlighted serious health dangers, such as addiction and psychosis. He spoke out after former Tory leader Lord Hague urged ministers to be ‘bold’ and legalise cannabis for recreational use – meaning it could be sold in shops with alcohol and tobacco. The peer claimed the war on the class B drug had been ‘comprehensively and irreversibly lost’. But campaigners said it would be wrong to decriminalise a narcotic linked to mental illness, organised crime, violence and road deaths. Addressing a health

A Guatemalan asylum-seeker sued the Trump administration on Tuesday for ´forcibly´ separating her from her seven-year-old son after they crossed the border in May. Beata Mariana de Jesus Mejia-Mejia was never indicted for illegally entering the country, but officials won´t tell where her son Darwin is, according to her lawsuit filed Tuesday in Federal District Court in Washington, D.C. against 6 federal agencies and 10 senior officials. Mejia-Mejia´s lawsuit is believed to be the first to challenge the government´s removal of a specific child from a parent in the course of upholding federal immigration law.

The Pentagon has formally suspended a major military exercise that was planned with South Korea in August. Donald Trump first announced that he planned to suspend military exercises with South Korea during the nuclear summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. It is a decision that will no doubt please Kim, as North Korea has long denounced the exercise as a provocation and rehearsal to invade the North. Trump´s decision was confirmed on Monday by Dana White, a spokesman for the Defense Department. White said planning for the summer drills has stopped, but there have been no decisions made on any other

It lived an uneventful life in Earth´s oceans 500 million years ago, but now this newly discovered creature has an unusual honor: It´s been given the scientific name Obamus coronatus, a name that honors President Barack Obama´s passion for science. (Coronatus means "crowned.") The tiny, disc-shaped animal was about a 1/2 inch long, with raised spiral grooves on its surface. It spent its entire life embedded on the ocean floor, likely never moving, according to scientists from the University of California – Riverside. A second small animal, an egg-shaped critter that may have looked like a raisin, was also discovered.

Michelle Obama joined her fellow former first lady Laura Bush Monday in criticizing the hard-line Trump administration immigration policy that has led to families being separated at the border. Bush, the wife of former President George W. Bush, penned a tweet over the weekend in which she echoed the widespread condemnation of the new directive from Attorney General Jeff Sessions. “I live in a border state,” Bush said. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.” Quoting that tweet, Obama wrote that “sometimes truth transcends

Hillary Clinton weighed in Monday morning on the ongoing controversy regarding the Trump administration’s "no-tolerance” border policy, suggesting that Jesus would not condone the actions of the American border authorities. At an awards lunch for the Women’s Forum of New York, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee called out “those who selectively use the Bible” to give grounds for the separations, which were reported by the Department of Justice on Friday. “I went to a lot of years of Sunday school — even taught it from time to time. I’ve studied both the Old and New Testament, and what is being

Republican Senate candidate Mitt Romney called on the Trump administration Monday to stop separating immigrant families at the southern border, calling the controversy a “humanitarian crisis” that requires Congress to devise a permanent solution. Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee, declined to blame President Trump or the Department of Homeland Security specifically in remarks to a group of voters at a park here. He called images of children separated from their parents “pretty disturbing” and “heartbreaking.” “I think immediately we should go back to the setting where we’re not ripping children away from their parents, and then we expect Congress to take

LANSING — The unprecedented outpouring of activism from students after the shooting at Marjorie Douglas Stoneman High School in Parkland, Fla., in February is the genesis for a bill introduced in the Legislature last week that would change the voting age in Michigan to 16. "We allow 16-year-olds to go off and get jobs and pay taxes, but we fail to allow them to exercise their voice come election time," said Sen. David Knezek, D-Dearborn Heights. "Young people are setting aside their differences and identifying issues they think need to change. And they can do everything to get that change

Illegal Immigration: The latest outrage by the Trump administration is its policy of "ripping" children away from parents who´ve crossed the border illegally. As with so many other things involving Trump, there´s plenty of emotion but precious little in the way of facts. The furor reached critical mass after the Department of Homeland Security said on Friday that 1,995 children had been separated from their illegal border crossing parents from mid-April through May. That number included, DHS said, cases where the adults were arrested for illegal entry, immigration violations, or possible criminal conduct. The practice has generated a rising storm of protests,

Roseanne Barr has become untouchable due to the "Valerie Jarrett/Ambien/Planet of the Apes" controversy, irrevocably contaminated by racism. This presents a problem for ABC, which canceled her revived show but wants the show to return in some form because it had high ratings. The apparent solution is to create a new show focused on the daughter character "Darlene," which would exclude Roseanne. Unfortunately, Roseanne Barr owns a chunk of the show, and ABC doesn´t want to be seen letting Barr profit from it, so ABC is in talks to buy the show from Barr so she would not technically profit

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 of power. The OIG is loath to face the ruthless reprisals that would inevitably follow

FBI Director Wray has said nothing to reassure Americans that he understands the serious corruption highlighted in the IG report. The FBI´s cover-ups and stonewalling on Wray´s watch add to his credibility problems. Both in is his press conference after the IG report was released, and in his testimony Monday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Director Wray demonstrated he was more concerned about protecting the reputation of the institution of the FBI than about the astonishing corruption of top FBI officials detailed in the IG report. During today’s hearing we heard about FBI agents who aren’t corrupt and how the Clinton email

Starbucks shares fell as much as 3% in after-hours trading Tuesday after the coffeehouse chain provided a weak sales forecast for its upcoming quarter and said it would shutter 150 stores in fiscal 2019. The Seattle-based company said it would close underperforming stores in “densely penetrated markets” and slow its rate of store growth. Starbucks said it traditionally closes about 50 underperforming locations annually. Starbucks said it expects same-store sales to grow 1% in its third fiscal quarter of 2017. Analysts had expected same-store sales to grow 3% in that period. “While certain demand headwinds are transitory, and some of

Monday at a border patrol facility in McAllen, TX on “CBS This Morning,” co-host Gayle King said the Statue of Liberty is “weeping right now” over the separating of immigrant children from their families. King said “We arrived yesterday afternoon. We went straight to the facility, the location where kids and their parents were reunited. All I can say after talking to the people, watching the people, listening to the people, that the Statue of Liberty I think is weeping right now. It’s unbelievable the stories we’ve heard.” She added, “We’re standing in front of a converted warehouse. This is
