FARRELL – IG REPORT SHOWS OBAMA RAN FBI OPERATION AGAINST TRUMP

Judicial Watch’s Chris Farrell says the IG report on FBI malfeasance in the sham Clinton Probe shows Obama was running the covert operation from the White House…

In welcoming Chris Farrell of Judicial Watch to his program, Lou Dobbs makes what may be his most understated observation of the year, that President Trump “has been very constrained with this Justice Department and FBI,” asking for his opinion on the President’s comments as to whether or not Comey should be locked up. Of course there’s no reason to stop with Comey or to exclude present DOJ and FBI leadership.

Trump doesn’t want to tie his own hands by calling for Comey to be locked up, but certainly he’s labeling him a criminal, which the content of the IG report reinforces. Farrell notes that the report itself contains useful information as to the nature of some of the improprieties, illegalities and potential illegalities that occurred. He says, “It’s weak, it loses its horsepower when it comes to recommendations. It’s a standard IG cover up document from that perspective, it’s not hard-hitting.”

Dobbs interrupts to give credit to Farrell as the only one of his many guests who correctly predicted the watered-down product that would be the result of this process, noting his earlier statements that “the Inspector General’s office is where truth goes to die.” Farrell describes IGs as being universally, “departments of cover ups, that’s what they do.”

Farrell references “Incredible commentary from Lisa Page asserting that everything that they were doing was being coordinated or is being briefed to the ‘president,’ meaning Mr. Obama. So this reaches back into the Obama White House, without any doubt or any sort of waffling. The Obama White House owns this, this is their activity. These crooked, dirty FBI agents and attorneys were coordinating their operations with the Obama White House.”

Farrell also notes what he calls a “startling admission by the character who is named as attorney number 2, where he says that there are legal documents with his name all over it…investigating President Trump’s staff” written the day after the election.

Farrell says, “This is a stop the presses moment. We’ve got the ‘president’ of the United States, Obama, wrapped up in this investigation, according to Lisa Page, and you have an FBI attorney talking about how he was investigating the president’s staff the day after the election.”

IG PART OF DEEP STATE – REPORT JUST MORE COVER UP OF DOJ COUP, A TOOL OF OBSTRUCTION

lou dobbs jim jordan report cover up

By Rick Wells

Dobbs cuts through the noise – the IG Report is nothing but a tool of the lying DOJ obstructionists to delay investigators and cover up, calling it moronic Horowitz…

Rep Jim Jordan takes exception to the denials and deflections by dirty cop FBI Director Christopher Wray,  who obviously knew the contents of the IG report in advance and had time to have his speech writers craft their defense accordingly. The cocky Wray said in his defensive press briefing and cover up for his longtime deep state colleague and friend, James Comey, that the Inspector General did not find, “any evidence of political bias or improper considerations actually impacting the ‘investigation‘ under review.”

Jordan tells Lou Dobbs, “Director Wray is just not accurate [lying] because in the report itself it says ‘we do not have confidence that Strzok’s decision was free from bias.’ What are they referring to? They’re referring to Peter Strzok, at the end of the Clinton investigation, saying let’s focus on Russia and not looking at Anthony Weiner’s laptop and stuff that relates to the Clinton investigation.”

Jordan points out it’s important because the one text message that is so explosive that was not seen until today, is one from Strzok to Page in which he says we’ll stop President Trump from being president, ‘we’ll stop him.‘” He points out that for Wray to say the ‘investigation’ was free of bias “is just not accurate. He quotes Horowitz as saying ‘We do not have confidence that Strzok’s decision was free from bias.’”

Dobbs says he believes that the Inspector General produced a whitewash exoneration report, saying, “He writes this report in much the same way James Comey announced the predicate for his conclusion in terms of prosecuting Hillary Clinton. It sounded like he was going to charge her and then suddenly said no charges.”

Jordan says he believes it is a thorough report but that Horowitz lets the facts speak for themselves. Dobbs disagrees, stating that not only can we not rely upon Congress to conduct real investigations, but “We have an Inspector General who is drawing conclusions that only a, frankly it’s moronic what he does, or immensely duplicitous and deceitful what he does, you choose.”

Dobbs continues, “Because this is, I mean his conclusions do not comport in any way to a causal relationship that is laid out, as you say, clearly in the report. The misconduct of five FBI agents and the injection of their personal politics. They’re using devices, their personal telephones, in the clear, insecure phones, to carry out government business, classified business, top secret business, in point of fact.”

Dobbs clarifies the nature of their ‘Midyear Investigation,’ the one that Loretta Lynch wanted to be referred to as a ‘matter.’ He says, “They didn’t have the guts to call it what it was. It was the Hillary Clinton email investigation.”

Jordan points to the revelation regarding a new person in the report, FBI lawyer number two, “who was part of the Clinton investigation, was the primary lawyer on the Trump Russia ‘investigation’ at the FBI, and then was also put on Mueller’s team.” He wants to know who that person is and to have them come in to be deposed as well.

Dobbs emphasizes, “Three top attorneys within the FBI on the same train with the three same stops and ultimately ending up on Mueller’s team. It is so clearly an anti-Trump bias. It is so clearly a Hillary Clinton bias in support of her candidacy.”

Dobbs says the evidence of bias makes it now even more appropriate for President Trump to intercede, “and ordering absolute transparency from, Rod Rosenstein is leading a deep state cover up, it is a partisan witch hunt. He is attacking a sitting President of the United States. The political motivation of the FBI and the Justice Department are absolutely conclusive, and I don’t give a damn what this Inspector General, so-called,  wants to call this report. It is nothing more than a cover up.”

DOJ IG Report: Humiliation for FBI ‘Trump’s Supporters Are All Poor, Uneducated, Lazy POS’ ‘Crazies Won’ ‘We have to fight this again’ in 4 Years ‘Also Pence is stupid’

The Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General report on the FBI handling of the Clinton email investigation reveals a bureau staffer made remarks attacking the “Deplorables,” the voters who elected Donald Trump.

On November 9, 2016, one day after the 2016 presidential election, an FBI staffer disparaged Trump voters to “FBI Attorney 2,” according to exchanges published in the report.

10:43:46, FBI Employee: “I’m very upset.”
10:43:47, FBI Employee: “haha”
10:51:48, FBI Attorney 2: “I am so stressed about what I could have done differently.”
10:54:29, FBI Employee: “Don’t stress. None of that mattered.”
10:54:31, FBI Employee: “The FBI’s influence.”
10:59:36, FBI Attorney 2: “I don’t know. We broke the momentum.”
11:00:03, FBI Employee: “That is not so.”
11:02:22, FBI Employee: “All the people who were initially voting for her would not, and were not, swayed by any decision the FBI put out. Trump’s supporters are all poor to middle class, uneducated, lazy POS that think he will magically grant them jobs for doing nothing. They probably didn’t watch the debates, aren’t fully educated on his policies, and are stupidly wrapped up in his unmerited enthusiasm.”

Moments later, the attorney lamented how a Trump presidency would erase would erase the Obama administration’s legislative achievements.

“I just can’t imagine the systematic disassembly of the progress we made over the last 8 years. ACA is gone,” the attorney said.

“Who knows if the rhetoric about deporting people, walls, and crap is true. I honestly feel like there is going to be a lot more gun issues, too, the crazies won finally. This is the tea party on steroids. And the GOP is going to be lost, they have to deal with an incumbent in 4 years. We have to fight this again.”

“Also Pence is stupid,” added the attorney.

When Justice Department investigators asked if the comments demonstrated a political bias, the attorney said, “personal political feelings or beliefs… in no way impacted” the staffer’s work undertaken on either the Clinton email probe or the Russia investigation.

IG REPORT: FBI AGENTS REGULARLY RECEIVED FREE HANDOUTS FROM JOURNALISTS

By Joe Simonson

The Department of Justice inspector general identified a number of instances where FBI employees regularly spoke with members of the media and received a number of free perks from journalists including meals and tickets to various events.

On page XII in the report, the IG says the department “identified numerous FBI employees, at all levels of the organization and with no official reason to be in contact with the media, who were nevertheless in frequent contact with reporters.”

The IG expressed “profound concerns about the volume and extent of unauthorized media contacts by FBI personnel that we have uncovered our review.”

The contact between FBI agents and the media extended to receiving “improperly receiving benefits from reporters, including tickets to sporting events, golfing outings, drinks and meals, and admittance to nonpublic social events.”

In the following paragraph, the IG implies that such benefits could have encouraged various agents to leak information to the press. (EXCLUSIVE: BuzzFeed Confirms It Knew About Ali Watkins’ Relationship With Indicted Senate Official)

“The harm caused by leaks, fear of potential leaks, and a culture of unauthorized media contacts is illustrated in Chapters Ten and Eleven of our report, where we detail the fact that these issues influenced FBI officials who were advising Comey on consequential investigative decisions in October 2016,” the report states.

The IG is forceful in its opinion that the problem with leaking is not “with the FBI’s policy, which we found to be clear and unambiguous.” Instead, the leaking phenomenon “appears to be a cultural attitude among many in the organization.”

According to charts provided in the IG report, one reporter had contact with 12 FBI officials, including an FBI executive and unit chief.

Another reporter contacted an assistant director 21 times and a special agent 23 times, according to the IG. Some FBI employees were in contact with multiple reporters, with one special agent contacting various journalists 32 times.

Such a finding by the IG helps shed light on how various information has reached outlets like CNN or The New York Times throughout the criminal investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. One of the striking findings from the report is how senior officials within the organization had no problem speaking with the media and breaking department policy — and possibly receiving goods in exchange for that information.

‘Viva Le Resistance’: Mueller attorney removed over anti-Trump texts…

Screen Shot 2018-06-14 at 3.25.31 PM

By Chuck Ross

An FBI attorney who worked on the special counsel’s Russia investigation until earlier this year sent anti-Trump text messages to a colleague, including one exclaiming: “Viva le Resistance.”

The attorney’s comments are revealed in a Justice Department inspector general’s report released on Thursday.

The lawyer is not identified, but he worked on the Hillary Clinton email investigation and was the FBI’s lead attorney on the investigation into Russian election interference. He was assigned to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation soon after it began in May 2017 and left in late February of this year after some of his private messages were shared with the special counsel.

The inspector general’s report focuses on instant messages that the attorney exchanged with a colleague about the Clinton and Russia probes. (RELATED: ‘Willingness’ To Impact The Election: IG’s Clinton Report Is Loaded With Bombshells)

“I am numb,” the attorney wrote on Nov. 9, 2016, the day after President Trump’s election.

“I am so stressed about what I could have done differently,” the lawyer continued, apparently referring to the FBI’s handling of the Clinton email probe.

The attorney’s messages show that he was distressed at the FBI’s decision in October 2016 to re-open the investigation into Clinton’s emails. Democrats have claimed that decision hurt Clinton at the polls.

The FBI lawyer also suggested that he would work to resist the Trump administration.

“Is it making you rethink your commitment to the Trump administration?” one FBI lawyer wrote on Nov. 22, 2016.

“Hell no. Viva le resistance,” the future Mueller attorney responded.

During interviews with the office of the inspector general, the lawyer claimed that his “personal political feelings or beliefs … in no way impacted” his work on the Clinton or Russia investigations.

The lawyer did acknowledge that the messages created the perception of anti-Trump bias. He told investigators that he “can understand the, the perception issues that come from” the Nov. 22, 2016 exchange.

The special counsel’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Here Is The Full OIG Report: Faults “Insubordinate” Comey, Notes FBI “Hostility” Against Trump

By Tyler Durden

After various leaks, first to Bloomberg then to Fox News and other outlets, finally the DOJ released to the public the 500-page DOJ Inspector General report of the Clinton email probe, which while hammering James Comey for being “insubordinate” and showing poor judgment during the 2016 election, it found no evidence to show his key decisions in the Clinton email investigation were improperly influenced by political bias; paradoxically, the same report also raised swirling questions about the role of FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok, whose texts with FBI lawyer Lisa Page the IG found suggested he “might be willing” to take official action to impact Trump’s electoral prospects, or as one might put it, “clear bias” against Trump.

It wasn’t just Strzok: the OIG found that other senior bureau officials showed a “willingness to take official action” to prevent Donald Trump from becoming president. One could almost call it, gasp, a “conspiracy.”

The Justice Department inspector general on Thursday castigated former FBI Director James B. Comey for his actions during the Hillary Clinton email investigation and found that other senior bureau officials showed a “willingness to take official action” to prevent Donald Trump from becoming president. –WaPo

In yet another example of the OIG report’s damning findings vs its milquetoast conclusion, we find that: “[W]e did not have confidence that Strzok’s decision to prioritize the Russia investigation over following up on the Midyear-related investigative lead discovered on the Weiner laptop was free from bias.”

And while the IG does not fault the FBI for not charging Clinton, it did find that, not surprisingly, Comey used personal email for official business which was “inconsistent with the DOJ Policy Statement.”

What was Hillary being investigated for? Oh yes, using a personal email to conduct business. Well, gee whiz, because according to the report, the OIG identified numerous instances in which Comey used a personal email account (a Gmail account) to conduct FBI business. Almost as if he found nothing wrong in what Clinton was doing because he was doing it all, himself.

he report also found that five FBI officials expressed hostility toward Donald Trump before his election and says in report to Congress that their actions have been referred to bureau for possible disciplinary action. 

Furthermore, and this is where Andrew McCabe may want to get concerned, the DOJ inspector general also has opened additional probes into leaks.

Biased state of mind

But as we reported earlier, in perhaps the most explosive new revelation from the report, Strzok told Page “We’ll stop it” when asked, “[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!”

Screen Shot 2018-06-14 at 2.56.19 PM

That text, the report said, was “indicative of a biased state of mind”—and suggested that Strzok may have intentionally slow-rolled the review of emails connected to the Clinton investigation discovered after the probe was closed, on a laptop belonging to former congressman Anthony Weiner. Strzok, as the number-two official in the Clinton investigation, was one of several individual figures who was made aware of the existence of the emails when they were initially uncovered.

In another instance of bias, a lawyer on Special Counsel Mueller’s team said “I never really liked the Republic anyway,” adding “As I have initiated the destruction of the Republic would you be so kind as to have coffee with me.”

In other words, the second email probe into Clinton was only opened days before the election because, as some had suggested, one or more FBI agents had threatened to leak that the FBI was sitting on a potential trove of documents which incriminated Hillary, while both Strzok and McCabe tried to keep it all under wraps.

According to the IG, the so-called “Midyear” team—the investigative unit that had handled the Clinton investigation—did not move to review the emails them until just days before the end of the election, almost a month after FBI officials in New York found them.

Strzok told investigators that at the time, he was prioritizing the investigation into then-candidate Donald Trump’s campaign’s ties to Russia.

Ah yes, Russia, Russia, Russia.

“Under these circumstances, we did not have confidence that Strzok’s decision to prioritize the Russia investigation over following up on Midyear-related investigative lead discovered on the Weiner laptop was free from bias,” the inspector general said.

Horowitz’s report did not find any evidence that political bias or improper influence impacted any decisions made in the Clinton case prior to Comey’s announcement that he was closing the case—including the decision not to recommend charges against Clinton.
