The Evening Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Former Obama Deputy Attorney General and very brief Acting Attorney General in the first days of the Trump Administration, Sally Yates, is suddenly becoming a major person of interest in the study of the actions of the Deep State Cabal, that group of corrupt FBI and DOJ officials who apparently attempted to tilt the 2016 election to Hillary Clinton and since have worked to undermine the Trump presidency at every turn.
Ms. Yates had a brief moment in the spotlight back on January 30, 2017, when she was summarily fired by President Trump for refusing to enforce his initial travel ban order. She then got another bit of sunshine on May 8, when she testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee about the role she played in concocting the Logan Act violation scheme that ultimately trapped General Mike Flynn, and led to his guilty plea for lying to the FBI. Notably, the sentencing for that plea is currently on hold until at least May at the request of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who finds his reason for being in his current role increasingly under political fire and public suspicion.
But back to the erstwhile Ms. Yates, who became such a cause celebre in leftwing circles for her defiant testimony last May. Little had been heard from her since that time, but two new revelations this week place her right back in the middle of things.
First is the nutty email that Susan Rice sent to herself at 12:15 on January 20, 2017 which I lampooned in this mornings Campaign Update that was uncovered this week by Senators Lindsey Graham and Charles Grassley. In a very ham-handed CYA move, Ms. Rice claims that President Obama, in discussing his senior staffs interactions with the Trump Transition team in a meeting on January 5, instructed everyone present to do it all by the book. Obviously, something else took place in that meeting that had Ms. Rice extremely concerned thus, the CYA email. Notably, she lists other senior officials being present in that meeting, including Joe Biden, James Comey and guess who? Deputy AG Sally Yates. Golly.
Then theres yesterdays piece from Byron York that discusses the fact that, in March 2017, James Comey testified to congress to the effect that the FBI agents whose interview with General Flynn in late January led to Flynns guilty plea told Comey that they did not believe Flynn had misled them during that interview. Comey also told congress that those agents saw nothing wrong with the outreach conversations Flynn had conducted during December and early January with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
It was only after Ms. Yates concocted her absurd scenario that Flynn was somehow in violation of the 218 year-old Logan Act, a law that has never in U.S. history been enforced, mainly because it is very likely unconstitutional, that Flynn suddenly came under harsh criticism in the fake news media and was ultimately fired by the President.
As York Reports:
So Comey went to Capitol Hill in March to brief lawmakers privately. That is when he told them that the FBI agents who interviewed Flynn did not believe Flynn had lied, or that any inaccuracies in Flynns answers were intentional. And that is when some lawmakers got the impression that Flynn would not be charged with any crime pertaining to the Jan. 24 interview.
And yet, with the Mueller Special Counsel staff floundering around, desperate to pin something on somebody, Flynn ultimately ends up pleading guilty in November to lying to the FBI. So, either Comey lied to congress last March which, given the multiple such instances were already aware of, certainly would not be surprising or FBI SuperAgent Peter Strzok and the other FBI agents present in that meeting with Flynn lied to Comey which also would surprise no one.
Regardless, the timing of all these various events:
- the January 5 meeting that Susan Rice was so worried about she felt the need to do some CYA for Obama 15 minutes after her job had ended; - the December/January calls between Flynn and Kislyak; the January 24 meeting between the FBI agents and Flynn; - the January 30 firing of Yates; and - the furious efforts by Yates between January 5 and January 30 to pin something, anything on Flynn seem to indicate that Yates was right smack in the middle of the Cabals plotting, and that we will likely be seeing and hearing her name come up a lot more in the weeks to come. So we got that going for us.
The more you know.
That is all.

Geez, just round up the whole damn Ovomit administration and lock them up until they squeal like the pigs they are.
I dont think that the email was intended to cover up instructions that Obama issued at the meeting. I think it was to cover up stuff that had already been done.
That’s certainly possible, too. But the choice of that specific meeting for the CYA operation indicates that something happened in that room on that day that the people in attendance want to keep under wraps.
Start building some more prisons. We’re going to need them.
I think it’s so Susan Rice could say in the future: “But POTUS Obama told me everything was by the book”!
So “Long Tall Sally!”
It has reached the point that it’s getting confusing as to which democrat did what bad deed to whom, when, where, and how. .
Maybe a corruption scorecard.
Do not doubt that there are Republicans in this up to their eyeballs...
After all the evidence I have seen so far, there must be grand juries.
No gallows, no peace.
Grand juries made up of a certain group of people who strictly voted for Obama.
Perhaps they unexpectedly learned that their PDBs had a much wider distribution than they plotted. This “by the book” shit is for zero’s plausible deniability.
Notice that it refers to it as a follow on meeting. So there were apparently others.
The Rice email also does something else. Both Comey and Obama have testified or proclaimed that Obama never met with and instructed the FBI about any of this investigation. The Rice email shows contemporaneously with the events that Comey lied under oath and Obama lied to the United States at large as he always did.
Change of venue to federal eastern district Richmond VA.
DC courts pool of jurors is polluted.
“Admiral, if we go “by the book”. like Lieutenant Saavik, hours could seem like days.”
“The situation is grave, Admiral. We won’t have main power for six “days”. Auxiliary power has temporarily failed. Restoration may be possible, in two “days”. By the book, Admiral. “
What was the deal with Rice and McMaster openly, publicly high-fiving each other upon his appointment?
After reading the article it appears to me that Yates was calling the shots not Meuller. What was Yates doing on his team anyway? Wasnt that a conflict?
Yates on Mueller’s team..?? AFTER she was fired in Jan ‘17?
Come to think about it; she did react as nastily to CINC as a high-end demon would to his exorcist; she was a screeching slasher before he even went after her. I thought her relatively ditzy, but maybe she is the true succubus in DOJ all this time.
“Grand juries made up of a certain group of people who strictly voted for Obama.”
It would not be hard to select a grand jury of 100% Obama supporters in the District of Columbia. Have a blind person select 12 people randomly from a crowd on the street. Likely 10 of the 12 selected would acquit Obama and his henchmen/women of any conceivable crime.
