Horowitz Goes Full Comey

Original Article

Posted By: shazbot123, 12/11/2019 4:54:18 AM

Like disgraced former FBI director James Comey before him exonerating Hillary Clinton for her crimes, DOJ inspector general Michael Horowitz presents us with a documented list of crimes, fraud, and deception in the FISA warrant application process by the FBI but then says never mind — these are bureaucratic mistakes made without bias and without intent. There still was sufficient predicate, says he, for starting an investigation and surveillance of Team Trump, even as Horowitz admits that the first FISA warrant, the one authorizing surveilling Carter Page, was riddled with errors and omissions of key exculpatory evidence.

I think we should eliminate the IG office. It's a swamp stamp and another waste of taxpayers' money.

If top people in the FBI make that many mistakes then they should be replaced. The average American makes one mistake and he is slapped in jail. We can not tolerate that in Law Enforcement. The truth, of course, is that these weren't mistakes but extreme political bias in a coup attempt on the President after an attempt to fit Hillary into the Oval Office with a shoehorn failed.

Given the extent of the "mistakes", all of which were in furtherance of the political narrative, the number of Woods violations, and all the other items mentioned in the report, there is no way a sane, uncorrupted person could possibly come to the conclusion of "no bias". It's past time to replace Horowitz with a competent America loving patriot.

A must read. Failure to indict and prosecute each one of the swamp creatures involved in this criminal enterprise will signal the death of the rule of law in the U.S., and the existence of a two-tiered "justice" system; one for the beltway crowd, and then the other one-for us.

I hope to God that Barr and Durham DON'T let this travesty slide, and I also hope that indictments eventually go to the top and not simply to some fall guys down the ladder. I can't imagine what Horowitz was thinking, even with the Press reporting only partially: the real quote was that the subjects interviewed said they had no political motivation. And Horowitz reported this, though the Press leaves out the "they said that" part. But not to draw the very very obvious conclusions IS similar to Comey going through Hillary's offenses and then letting her off the hook.

To quickly clarify the situation, DOJ IG Michael Horowitz should tell the Senate Committee that he could not find political bias involving still employed DOJ/FBI employees against President Trump during his investigation, because none of those federal employees would “fess up” to having political bias against President Trump as they planned and conducted the investigation in question. Because those DOJ/FBI employees being interviewed did not want to loose their career jobs with the DOJ/FBI, along with the fact that he could not find any documentary evidence of political bias because DOJ/FBI employees did not memorialize any political bias by putting that factor into official DOJ/FBI documentation that his investigation could find. Beyond that when you take common sense into consideration, it is obvious that back when the FBI investigation was ongoing that the higher up super FBI bureaucrats were extremely bias against Trump and his campaign, or such a improper investigation, with an obvious political motive, against a presidential candidate and his campaign would never have been commenced and run by “a small top level super bureaucrat group” at FBI Headquarters.

Having the IG is a good concept. It is a mechanism for identifying fraud, waste and abuse, as well as malfeasance. The problem happens when the IG fails to be impersonal and objective. When the IG tries to soften bad findings to protect people he is friends with, sympathetic to, or politically allied with the IG becomes a negative, instead of a positive.. That is what has happened with Horowitz, IMO.

Horowitz is, because of the nature of his job, his charter and apparently, his political intent, a paper tiger. He just asks people to explain things, and he writes those things down uncritically. And he reads documents that they wrote, and reports them, and notes if there is a clear difference between one document and another. He also notes if a procedure wasn't followed. And he makes no judgements. If two stories don't match, he reports, "there are inconsistencies in these places". If nobody says "I saw lots of political bias" or there was no written report of political bias, he reports, "No statements of or reported incidents of political bias were found." He does NOT go looking deeper, and makes zero judgements of what things he is told are clearly lies, that would be a judgement call, and he clearly (perhaps by the nature of the IG job) does NOT do judgement calls. I hope that Durham, who is a prosecutor, not an "Inspector General", DOES make judgement calls and files criminal indictments against a LOT of folks. Horowitz documented 51 frauds against the FISA court. THAT should be 51 counts against some folks. Probably 10 or so against the same person, so probably not 51 separate people. But Comey, McCabe and Rosenstein signed off on the FISA requests as truthful, complete and accurate, with all exculpatory material provided also - and these things clearly, obviously did NOT happen, so at least those three should get multiple felony accounts against them. There should be plenty more to go around for the approximately three dozen folks who have been named publicly as being part of this criminal, traitorous conspiracy to overthrow a President.

Carter Page was only a conduit to spy on the entire Trump campaign and presidency. We have not been told the entirety of this spying, and we never will be, as it will be shoved under the rug. Our government is so corrupt, hiding behind law enforcement and national security shields, redactions, smudge outs, refusing to testify, testifying that they cannot get into that, no basis provided----a total lying farce.

Please watch or read a copy of Lindsey Graham's 40-minute opening remarks. Riveting! He destroys the claim that there was no bias in the coup attempt. Predictably, Diane Feinstine's rebuttal was a boring bunch of lies that had no connection to reality and the truth.

Before the first FISA application was signed and submitted mired by the pompous, self-serving serial liar James Comey, who signed three of them, Carter Page wrote Comey a letter telling him he was a government asset working with the CIA and the FBI. If that letter had been presented to the FISA court by Comey, as it should have been, the FISA court never would have approved the Obama administration surveillance of Carter Page and Team Trump.

When the Dear Leader of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep, Jerry Nadler, said that this was too important a matter to trust to the voters in the next election, he and his ilk gave us a frightening preview of the Gulag into which they would put We the People, should they gain full control of the government.  They wrap themselves up in the Constitution but conveniently forget the first three words. They forget that the Constitution establishes three branches of government, not two. But they have no time for the courts to rule on disputed documents and privileged conversations. They call the President a dictator, yet can’t wait for the next election.

As I’ve written repeatedly in this space, President Obama not only honored traitors at the White House but also pardoned those who would betray our nation’s secrets. Yet the Obama-Biden administration, while asking our young soldiers to make split-second life-and-death battlefield decisions hampered by absurd rules of engagement, had no qualms about zapping terrorists from the sky via drone-launched missiles, risking the lives of nearby civilians and killing an American citizen. During it all, Joe Biden was silent.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) launched the debate over the impeachment of President Donald Trump on Wednesday by comparing the Democrats’ struggle to remove him from office to the Battle of the Bulge against Nazi Germany in World War II. Described as “Hitler’s Last Gamble,” the battle began in December 1944, when the Nazis sent 200,000 troops into a surprise attack against American forces. Though the Americans prevailed, 100,000 were killed or wounded over two months of fighting. Pelosi drew an analogy between the impeachment debate and that battle, the largest ever fought by the U.S. Army:

Former President Barack Obama’s once-longtime doctor said the medical records Joe Biden’s campaign disclosed are concerning and incomplete.“He’s not a healthy guy,” Dr. David Scheiner, who was Obama's personal physician for the 22 years before he became president, concluded after reading the records. “He’s not in bad shape for his age, but I wouldn't say he’s in outstanding health. Could I guarantee he won't have issues for the next four years? He has a lot of issues that are just sort of sitting there.”A three-page letter from Biden’s physician concluded the former vice president is a “healthy, vigorous, 77-year-old” that is fit to be president.

As they prepare for their final battle against the galaxy’s forces of evil, the characters in The Rise of Skywalker remind each other several times that if this doesn’t work, everything that’s come before—everything they’ve fought for, everything they’ve been through—will all count for nothing. You could say the same of the movie itself. We can debate the importance of final chapters, whether they really have, or should have, the power to elevate or invalidate everything that came before them—and though the ninth episode in this generation-spanning story has been advertised with the promise that “The Saga Will End,” that’s a promise that has been made and broken before.

A Washington Post fact-check released Thursday gave House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) four Pinocchios for a "bogus talking point" about the number of children killed with firearms each year. Pelosi has repeatedly claimed that 47 percent of gun deaths were "teenagers or children," according to the Post. CDC data show the real number is closer to 9 percent, meaning the House speaker exaggerates the true number by more than fivefold. This discrepancy led the Post to assign Pelosi's claim the harshest rating on its fact-checking scale.
