OIG Report, Thread Two
Plus: Another Mueller Prosecutor Finally Removed Over Anti-Trump, "Viva La Resistance!" Texts

See below for the earlier stuff we've collectively found.

Here's some new stuff, starting with faulting McCabe and Peter Kadzik for not recusing themselves from these matters.

With respect to these investigations, we agreed with the
FBI's chief ethics official that McCabe was not at any
time required to recuse under the relevant authorities.
However, voluntary recusal is always permissible with
the approval of a supervisor or ethics official, which is
what McCabe did on November 1. Had the FBI put in
place a system for reviewing campaign donations to Dr.
McCabe, which were public under Virginia law, the
sizable donations from McAuliffe's PAC and the Virginia
Democratic Party may have triggered prior
consideration of the very appearance concerns raised in
the October 23 WSJ article.

Finally, we also found that
McCabe did not fully comply with this recusal in a few
instances related to the Clinton Foundation
investigation.

Former Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik:

In Chapter Fourteen, we found that Kadzik
demonstrated poor judgment by failing to recuse
himself from Clinton-related matters under federal
ethics regulations prior to November 2, 2016. Kadzik
did not recognize the appearance of a conflict that he
created when he initiated an effort to obtain
employment for his son with the Clinton campaign while
participating in Department discussions and
communications about Clinton-related matters.

He didn't recognize this, or he recognized it and decided to help Clinton anyway?


Kadzik also created an appearance of a conflict when he
sent the Chairman of the Clinton Campaign and a
longtime friend, John Podesta, the "Heads up" email
that included the schedule for the release of former
Secretary Clintonís emails proposed to the court in a
FOIA litigation without knowing whether the information
had yet been filed and made public. His willingness to
do so raised a reasonable question about his ability to
act impartially on Clinton-related matters in connection
with his official duties.

Additionally, although Department leadership
determined that Kadzik should be recused from Clintonrelated
matters upon learning of his "Heads up" email
to Podesta, we found that Kadzik failed to strictly
adhere to this recusal. Lastly, because the government
information in the "Heads up" email had in fact been
released publically, we did not find that Kadzik released
non-public information or misused his official position.

From the Daily Caller: Viva La Resistance, writes one of Mueller's Murderers Row of partisan I'm With Her Democrats:

An FBI attorney who worked on the special counselís 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 generalís report released on Thursday.

The lawyer is not identified, but he worked on the Hillary Clinton email investigation and was the FBIís 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.

"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 FBIís handling of the Clinton email probe.

The attorney's messages show that the was distressed at the FBI's decision in October 2016 to re-open the investigation into Clintonís 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"Ē one FBI lawyer wrote on Nov. 22, 2016.

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

This isn't the only IG report that will come out but yeah this one seems to be a shit sandwich. We see lots of political bias, but what we wanted to see was this political bias being the catalyst for blatantly illegal actions and hence having the need for criminal referrals. Instead it's just a "concern" for a lack of professional conduct.

Pasting into notepad and copying/pasting back into the HQ usually works, but there might be some hangups even then. Super fancy curly quotation marks and commas will get you, as will the double hyphen punctuation that I can't remember the name of right now but that acts sort of like a parenthesis.

I bet there's a website that strips all of that stuff out and puts the dumbest characters back in, but I've never looked for it.

88 Nothing - nothing - will or should satisfy any serious person about his until the substantive issue is addressed: why were massive, undeniable, systematic, ipso facto Espionage Act violations *not* prosecuted?


Everything else, as bad as some of it is, is secondary.


This report - incredibly, to me - looks at that facts and concludes that the central issue involved nothing even warranting a recommendation.


The IG report is at pains (appropriately) not to engage in cheap second guessing of discretionary calls. But I cannot understand how they simply accept that the failure to prosecute such an obvious and brazen crime wave could be a reasonable outcome of any serious or unbiased investigation.

91 Turns out ... when I write a Movie Review ... I get Nooded. Never done this before - but here it is ...

No Court was ever going to stick its own neck out and bust down the FBI without some external prompting. And only Massive Public Outrage was going to fuel that. So what did this report just do ?

First - chilled that Outrage by putting almost two years between the events and the report. Second - turned any remaining Outrage into Confusion.


You can see it already, here. Jail ? Hell no. Now - we may get some people Fired.

But the FBI ain't going nowhere. And that means this shit is all going to happen again.

Chin up - We may not have Law - but we got plenty of Order.

Pasting into notepad and copying/pasting back into the HQ usually works, but there might be some hangups even then. Super fancy curly quotation marks and commas will get you, as will the double hyphen punctuation that I can't remember the name of right now but that acts sort of like a parenthesis.

I bet there's a website that strips all of that stuff out and puts the dumbest characters back in, but I've never looked for it.

107 Basic facts to be accepted after this report:
1. There are 2 sets of rules in this country.2. What Hillary was up to, including the private server, the tarmac meeting, all of that, was as bad or worse than we could dream up.
3. There is a Deep State and it is set full throttle on bringing this country down.4. The election of DJT was a miracle.5. Jeff Sessions is a Deep State rat and should be fired immediately, along with Mueller's entire team, Rod Rosenstein, Chris Wray and no less than 80% of the DOJ and FBI.

In order to get to the point where everyone knows it's a whitewash, we all have to assume the following;

The government isn't of the people, or for the people.
The official version of something is most likely bullshit.
There is a set of laws for us, and one for them.
That the above isn't just cynicism, but reality.

Ask yourself a question: What was the worst possible outcome regarding the IG report that could have occurred? THAT THE CLINTON E-MAIL INVESTIGATION WAS CONDUCTED IN AN EXEMPLARY MANNER IN DUE ACCORDANCE WITH FBI AND DOJ NORMS AND PROCEDURES. Does the IG Report say that? No!!! I argue that this IG report accomplished exactly what we want it to accomplish #8211; to provide President Trump with cover to order Sessions, Rosenstein and Wray to perform a proper, norm-following investigation of the Clinton e-mail scandal. What can they argue? That a norm-following investigation has already been performed? Ha Ha!!!

Cut and paste it into Notepad (if you're on a PC machine) to render it into plain text; and then cut and paste the plain text into the comment pane.

You'll still have to remove all "smart punctuation" like 'genuine', bent quotation marks and apostrophes, and en -- and em --- dashes or it won't post or give you black diamonds instead. Commas and periods are okay though; they don't have to be retyped.

++++++
SSBN, it is almost always caused non-"standard" punctuation. As someone mentioned above, pretend you're living a couple of decades ago and stick to basic characters if you can. Finding the offending item can be tough, but the red screen of death will help. Look at the final line. For example:
UnicodeEncodeError: 'latin-1' codec can't encode character u'\u2018' in position 0: ordinal not in range(256)

This tells you which character is acting up. In this case, it is unicode character 2018. You can then look up that code somewhere like https://tinyurl.com/ydzyn8aa, which has most of the common unicode characters you find in general use. In this case, it is a "left single quotation mark" and so almost certainly is a single-quote or an apostrophe.

You can also do a "find on page" in your browser and paste in the character from the link above, and jump right to it since browser in-page searches are usually character compliant.

Pixy is less than illuminating, but the error message *will* tell you what's wrong and it's pretty easy to find the offender if you have a place to look up the rune that corresponds to the code that the error message vomits out.

I hope this helps!

169 To everybody here calling this report a "whitewash"---

--The 500 pages haven't been fully digested yet

--There are already scraps of "news" and info that have been pointed out that have led to questions being asked. This can lead to other things being found out.

---Now that the report is out in the open, people are going to be talking and someone will say something that will open up another avenue of inquiry

--The report has lit a fire under Republicans.

_--Trump --who has seen the un-redacted document hasn't weighed in yet. When he does, more people will find out about what is in the report....

"Oh well! Shit happens!"

AYFKM????

Even better, they find evidence 'foreign actors' accessed that classified and are completely unconcerned. Papadopolus mumbles about dirt on Hillary and its a full on CI investigation; they go whistling past a real and discovered intel op on the SecState.

Ask
yourself a question: What was the worst possible outcome regarding the
IG report that could have occurred? THAT THE CLINTON E-MAIL
INVESTIGATION WAS CONDUCTED IN AN EXEMPLARY MANNER IN DUE ACCORDANCE
WITH FBI AND DOJ NORMS AND PROCEDURES. Does the IG Report say that?
No!!! I argue that this IG report accomplished exactly what we want it
to accomplish #8211; to provide President Trump with cover to order
Sessions, Rosenstein and Wray to perform a proper, norm-following
investigation of the Clinton e-mail scandal. What can they argue? That a
norm-following investigation has already been performed? Ha Ha!!!

You'll still have to remove all "smart punctuation" like 'genuine', bent quotation marks and apostrophes, and en -- and em --- dashes or it won't post or give you black diamonds instead. Commas and periods are okay though; they don't have to be retyped.

The facts as stated in the report are damning. I wasn't expecting criminal referrals in the report; I do expect the report and the supporting documents to be referred to US Attorneys for further investigation on those matters that require scrutiny.
Items: Comey-USIC discussion for a joint statement regarding the Russian matters, which we now know is based on an unverified document funded by the Clinton campaign. A detailed accounting of classified documents found on the Abedin-Weiner laptop. The "We'll stop it" Strozk comment. Several e-comments between FBI investigators that calls their professionalism into question.
This report essentially justifies a top-down Congressional investigation and review of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. It is now available to the public and provides the White House with proof positive of a long-standing rank-and-file animus towards Republican voters and the Trump administration. I pity the FBI employees who simply want to do their jobs in a professional manner. Anything less than an expression of total fealty would be the end of their career path.

You were going to be fine. If you look and notice that your name was not italicized. It's because you had an attempt to close the tag in your post. Pixy seems really wierd on that, but it seems like if you have an attempted tag close like you did with the /i] then, while your entire comment will still be italicized it will not carry on beyond yours into others.

326 313 FBI analysts and Prosecutor 2 told us that former President Barack Obama was one of the 13 individuals with whom Clinton had direct contact using her clintonemail.com account. Obama, like other high level government officials, used a pseudonym for his username on his official government email account.

What Obama lied? I thought he first learn of the email server in the newspaper.

As per redc1c4:

All of us need to demand a:

_PROPER, NORM-FOLLOWING INVESTIGATION_ into H Clinton's repeated and gross abuse of top secret information.

Why? Because the IG report plainly INSISTS that no such investigation was conducted.

Like redc1c4 said: What's the objection? That such a proper investigation has already been done?
The IG Report insists otherwise!

It says (and documents) lots of bias - BUT concludes the *investigative decisions/judgement calls* made in the process were *not* influenced by this bias, but were reasonable (if incorrect) options from the list of possible options.


I guess my point is slightly separate. How can a situation with massive, undeniable, serious felonies sitting there be "investigated" (with or without bias) - and no prosecutions result?


Still have to read more of the report, but at several key points the IG provides a circular out for the FBI by saying they skipped standard approaches because they didn't think there was any chance of finding prosecutable crimes. WTF?


As AZ Hi Desert noted above, classified info was feloniously transferred outside its very narrowly defined proper environment (systematically, for years, by the f***ing SecState and her staff) - but nobody broke any laws? WTF? How could the "team" reasonably conclude there was no promising course to pursue when the criminal predicate was as yuuuuge and rock-solid as one could ever find in such a situation?

382 I think as this report is combed through that we will find that the OIG's conclusions do not necessarily follow from the facts presented.

The spin in the report, from everything I've seen in it so far, is to give FBI/DOJ personal every benefit of every doubt possibly offered.

Even so, the milquetoast conclusions made by OIG are damning.

Where the FBI was not incompetent, they were in fact biased (although OIG says that they can't *prove* bias with the docs and testimony they collected).

413 Don't see how anyone can bl that Strzok is rolling over on anyone. His responses to the texts are a) perfectly innocent and b) completely separate from his ability to do his job without bias. When asked about the "insurance policy" mccabe and page both claimed no knowledge of what term meant and that no meeting was held in mccabe's office. And, the other FBI agents cited, but idenities not revealed. They need to be fired, too. You cannot be as opinionated and hate-filled as they are towards the American people, as well as your CiC, and do an honorable job. Not happening.

The analysts told us that they questioned whether Obama's email address (combined
with salutations that revealed that the emails were being exchanged with Obama) or other information
contained in the emails were classified and, thus, sent the emails to relevant USIC agencies for
classification review. However, they stated that the USIC agencies determined that none of the emails

Have not read the whole report, obviously. But the summary/recos repeatedly absolve the "team" of making calls based on bias. Which, given the underlying facts of the case, I find astonishing.


Meanwhile - and I'm certain there will be a festival of little nuggets like this in the IG report - Page 89, footnote 75 confirms that Obama was one of 13 people corresponding with Clinton on her unsecure, illegal email system.

Same deal, but notice for some reason(s) he has not quit in almost a year since he got fired from the mueller gig. That means he is cooperating with the IG because he wants to keep his pension and avoid jail time.

482 >>Gotta admit, this surprises me. So when on Tuesday you cryptically said "Thursday will be a good birthday" for Trump, you were thinking nice sunny day? Cake and two scoops? Sterling economic news?
Then, when you said it, I thought you were referring darkly to an impactful IG report. But obviously not, because that didn't happen.

I think people are misinterpreting what the IG does and what his limitations are. He is not a prosecutor, all he does is gather evidence and lay it out. He doesn't even make criminal referrals as part of the report.

He can recommend that employees be turned over to their internal oversight groups which is what Horowitz did with McCabe and today 5 more FBI employees. Criminal referrals can come from that, just like it did with McCabe.

Further, we have no idea what Huber and his team are doing in parallel to this whole process. And nobody has even fully read this report today which includes all sorts of gems which could be predicate for criminal prosecutions.

Horowitz made a very detailed report and from what I've seen so far there is plenty of goodness to justify lots of criminal actions.

It's not just a matter that she might have included an attachment showing the field maps of a unit in Afghanistan, but her own thought processes and understanding reflects our strategic intentions at the highest level, including as shared by the CIC.

I have little doubt but that the Russkies walked into Crimea at least in part due to confidence gained from Hillary's emails, reflecting that we would ultimately cede it as Russian vital interests. And that's just one we (probably) know about.

11:11:43 FBI Attorney 2: "I'm just devastated. I can't wait until I can leave today and just shut off the world for the next four days."

11:12:06 FBI Employee: "Why are you devastated?"

11:12:18 FBI Employee: "Yes, I'm not watching tv for four years."

11:14:16 FBI Attorney 2: "I just can't imagine the systematic disassembly of the progress we made over the last 8 years. ACA is gone. 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."

11:14:58, FBI Employee: "Yes that's all true."

11:15:01 FBI Attorney 2: "And it's just hard not to feel like the FBI caused some of this. It was razor thin in some states."

11:15:09 FBI Employee: "Yes it was very thin."

11:15:23 FBI Attorney 2: "Plus, my god damned name is all over the legal documents investigating his staff."

11:15:24 FBI Employee: "But no I absolutely do not believe the FBI had any part."

11:15:33 FBI Attorney 2: "So, who knows if that breaks to him what he is going to do."

How do you get that text to copy-and-paste? When I try, the text is rendered into little meaningless dashes and dots. Some sort of security feature in the pdf, I think.

Concur. But I'm sure somewhere down the line people are going to raise their eyebrows at the USIC-FBI discussion referred to in the IG report. The October 6, 2016 declaration that there was evidence of Russian and US "political organizations". Comey rightfully deferred from signing on to the statement. From the IG Report (p. 347):

"The U.S. Intelligence Community (USIC) is confident that the Russian Government directed the recent compromises of emails from US persons and institutions, including from US political organizations." The statement then described the nature of these compromises and urged "state and local election officials to be vigilant."

I'm starting to get the feeling that the summary and conclusions were written without the rest of the report in mind.



This does not engender confidence in the IG process.

LOL they were written when Comey wrote the Bollard Queens exoneration, which wasn't biased even though it was written before the investigation.

540 The report doesn't identify them by name. But apparently it was lawyers who worked for the FBI. People in decision-making roles.

Huh, go figure, I just saw a Bollywood movie (Samurai), where a vigilante fed 7 corrupt officials to the crowd, with dance number of course.

Who the hell do these assholes think they are and being the egotistical dicks that they are immune from the law, I mean justice. Eff them. Burn, scatter, salt.

541 482:

"Further, we have no idea what Huber and his team are doing in parallel to this whole process. And nobody has even fully read this report today which includes all sorts of gems which could be predicate for criminal prosecutions."

There is ample evidence now to indict McCabe for perjury and lying to a federal agent, to cite one example. Unless prosecutions follow indictments Huber obtains, cynicism will lead invariably to an actual, real resistance that will include routine jury nullifications in federal courtrooms. There is no question crimes were committed. The issue is whether there in enough semblance of the Rule of Law left in the United States for justice to be possible.

I don't think there is. Note that in one of Page's texts Horowitz quoted she writes Trump's election would not be good for "our organization." That's sort of perfect. We have an Administrative State with trappings of a democracy as things now stand.

I hope to be disabused of this opinion, but quite doubt it will happen.

542 @536:

At roughly the same time, DHS' Jeh Johnson asked the states to allow the federal government to handle vote tabulations. It was inexplicable at the time, now not so much. The Obama Administration was going to steal the election if necessary and apparently weren't so cocksure things would turn out as they had planned. Imbedded there is the raison d'etre: Russia.

Posted by: Trump poisoned my cat at June 14, 2018 05:00 PM (F50XE)

543 I hope the voters carry away from this exercise that, at a minimum, Trump needs lots more MAGA candidates elected to Congress. He's fighting an embedded Deep State that obstinately refuses to change, or even acknowledge any errors.

544 Scogg I'll take a swing at your request. The rest of us were desperately hoping that IG report would say what it would say if we had written it. Why were we hoping that? Because the alternative solution is a full blown civil war - with millions of people dead as a result.
