CIA Joins DOJ Probe of #Spygate Origins

But is the CIA getting involved to find the truth, or to bury it?

Attorney General William Barr has enlisted the help of the CIA to investigate whether the FBI's surveillance of the Trump campaign was motivated by partisan bias, CNN reported Tuesday.

CIA director Gina Haspel, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, and FBI director Chris Wray are all participating in the investigation, which Barr first announced publicly during a congressional hearing last month.

I still have my doubts that the Deep State, and those with friends in the Deep State, will permit any kind of real investigation to happen. And I'm quite sure that Deep State apparatchiks are completely immune to prosecution for the perjury and obstruction they charge their targets with.

101 The problem is is that what Obama/Clinton did in 2016 is that it's actually massive and semi-hidden. Who was misfud? What's on the destroyed strzok cell phone? You can see from the individual acts that it's a massive watergate level crime but it's hard to summarize without sounding kooky.

Obama admin had Russian ambassador stop by Session's office.

Strzok had some guy give Papadapa $10K while overseas so he could arrest him for having money while coming back to the US.

So many members of the trump campaign were approached. It's hard to keep track of.

109 I'd like to hear Barr say.

Because if he was serious, the shits in the DOJ/FBI responsible for LYING about "losing" the Strojk/Page texts and also LYING about destroying all of hitlery's emails would be named, fired, and charged with obstruction.

Perhaps Barr had no choice. He needs the CIA to help with his investigation regardless of any misgivings.

Barr also needs to be able to work with the CIA.

But Barr requested the help. He must need it. Let's hope he keeps a close eye on it.

Of course the CIA can't be trusted. They've been crooked for a lot longer than this scandal.

Strzok had some guy give Papadapa $10K while overseas so he could arrest him for having money while coming back to the US.


Great story, George thought that getting $10,000 in cash in a foreign country by someone you just met might be a problem, so he went instead to Greece and gave the cash to a lawyer to hold.

The FBI must have been pretty shocked in their little sting, when they couldn't find it as he stepped off the plane in NY.

There has been so much investigating, and FOIA requests and documents and trails found, and witness testimony and secret courts... and Barr has access to it all (well, sort of - what has been discovered anyway). He already knows the names of some of those in the CIA that may have been involved.

Any US Attorney who doesn't get either a hard time conviction of someone, or a plea to fry a bigger fish, approved by Barr, should expect to be replaced before the 2020 election.

"I just think there is a way, and the thing that will fundamentally change things is with Donald Trump out of the White House - not a joke - you will see an epiphany occur among many of my Republican friends," the former vice president said during a campaign stop in New Hampshire, adding that the GOP feels "intimidated" by Trump.

After the previous dude squandering most of his term on wars stifled by the First Lawfare Division and not pushing back, I wasn't really surprised when Presnit Hopenchange got the nod in 2008. I'd gone to the library, spent four hours in 'Dreams of My Father' and went away disgusted, but in the end I wasn't surprised.

I was utterly and completely disgusted when he was REELECTED, though. At that point in time I'd have voted to exterminate the entire population of the US.

One of the big benefits of multiple investigations by independent teams is that it forces people to either reach out to attempt to collude, which would be very perilous, or to be scrupulous honest just so the other team won't catch them in the act of trying to cover something up.

Some collusion is still possible, but the chances are reduced.

370 JS Sometimes you need to come up for a breath...

I think every one of the US Attorneys should get one strand of the corruption to pull on. Someone gets Mills get out of jail free immunity, someone gets Samuelson's, someone gets Steele's testimony, someone gets Comey's memos, someone gets Platte River, someone gets server chain of custody, someone gets Crowdstrike, someone gets Deripaska, someone gets EC origination, someone gets Halper, someone else Mifsud, someone else gets Strzok/Page London trip etc etc etc.

Any US Attorney who doesn't get either a hard time conviction of someone, or a plea to fry a bigger fish, approved by Barr, should expect to be replaced before the 2020 election.

Both Haspel and Wray can perform executive investigations internally in their own agencies.

Except they won't be the ones performing them. They will be the ones green-lighting allowing DoJ investigators into their agencies to perform the investigations.

Let us see where this goes. My take is that neither of these two agencies will still be around when President Trump leaves office in 2024.

Eh?

They recovered three spent casings in Oswald's sniper's nest and one bullet on the stretcher at Parkland Hospital. They also recovered fragments from the Governor's wrist, the car, and JFK's skull. Expert testimony concluded those fragments in those locations were the remains of two bullets.

Romney rejects Trump judicial pick who smeared Obama https://politi.co/2JiBeu5

Romney cast the lone GOP "no" vote against Michael Truncale, who was confirmed 49-46 on Tuesday morning to the Eastern District of Texas. Truncale called Obama an "un-American imposter" in June 2011, and explained to the Senate Judiciary Committee that he was "merely expressing frustration by what I perceived as a lack of overt patriotism on behalf of President Obama." He also said he believed Obama was born in Hawaii and did not subscribe to "birtherism," a racist theory that the president was not an American citizen.


But all that wasn't a good enough explanation for Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee.

"He made particularly disparaging comments about President Obama. And as the Republican nominee for president, I just couldn't subscribe to that in a federal judge," Romney said in a brief interview. "This was not a matter of qualifications or politics. This was something specifically to that issue as a former nominee of our party."

And the magic bullet wasn't the head shot, it was the shot thru Kennedy's throat that also hit Connelly. Which wasn't so magical when you realize JFK's limo wasn't laid out like your dad's station wagon. JFK wasn't exactly behind Connelly, he was somewhat above and to the right of him. Oswald acted alone, three shots.

434 I don't think Barr needs a single Associate AG, I think the entire apparatus of the DOJ should be involved in 'managing' and 'coordinating' all of the different investigations. That would make the subverters very obvious very quickly, they would have to play whack-a-mole every time different angles popped up, and there are so many angles, the subverters would have to self sacrifice for each one. AG Barr is a single point of failure, but we have no choice but to trust Trump's judgement there, but there should not be a new single point of failure created.
