  • There is Justice, and Then There is Poetic Justice.

    05/18/2020 5:50:23 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 13 replies ^ | May 18, 2020 | Douglas MacKinnon
    Will Michael Flynn – the former National Security Advisor to President Trump – finally get the justice he and all of his supporters believe he truly deserves? And if so, would that justice then morph into a case of poetic justice, in which Michael Flynn is appointed as the next director of the FBI and goes on to head up the very organization he, President Trump, and those same supporters believe framed him in the first place? I spoke with one senior administration official who says that is now open speculation in some quarters. For those who are students of...

    Mollie Hemingway .. that FBI Director Christopher Wray's demeanor creates a perception that he's not serious about fixing the bureau's issues following this Department of Justice watchdog report critical of the agency. "I think Christopher Wray's problem is he doesn't seem like he is that upset about what happened," Hemingway said .. I think people are looking for someone who is extremely serious about this, who understands the significance, who takes it like the serious thing it is." ...

    According to Sean and Jason Chaffetz the report’s release continues to be pushed back. It was expected to be released this week but now there is news that it won’t be released until next week.  This is due to intra-agency squabbling over the proposed redactions.The deep state is determined to delay this historic report on the Obama administration’s spying on the Trump campaign. Sean Hannity: Which brings us to the IG report. Congressman Chaffetz, it’s been taking us a long time. And we heard the end of this week. Now we heard the beginning of next week. I can never get...
  • Mueller was pursuing FBI director job when he met with Trump in 2017, administration officials say

    EXCLUSIVE – Multiple administration officials tell Fox News that when Robert Mueller met with President Trump in May of 2017, Mueller was indeed pursuing the open post as the director of the FBI – something the former Russia probe special counsel denied under oath during congressional testimony this summer. These officials also told Fox News government documents showed Mueller was pursuing the job as a candidate himself. It came as emails released this month through a Freedom of Information Act request by the conservative group Judicial Watch seemed to indicate Mueller knew there was a real possibility he could be...
  • Gregg Jarrett: James Comey owes America an apology – He abused his position as FBI Director

    Only the audaciously arrogant fired FBI Director James Comey would demand the equivalent of an apology in the wake of a blistering denunciation of his actions by the Justice Department’s inspector general Thursday. As usual, Comey has it backwards. Comey is the one who owes the American public a sincere apology for abusing his position as FBI director, violating government rules, concealing information from his former agency, leaking sensitive documents without authorization, mismarking memos without classification banners, improperly retaining records in an unsecured location, failing to surrender those records to the FBI, and assuming “carte blanche authority” he did not...

    The National Sentinel ^ | 5/29/19 | Jon Dougherty
    In an interview over the Memorial Day weekend, former federal prosecutor Joe diGenova told a D.C. radio station that a “battle royale” is taking place within the Justice Department between Attorney General William Barr and FBI Director Christopher Wray, as well as other elements of the intelligence community. At issue, said diGenova, are efforts by Barr and the Trump administration to restore “accountable government” to federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies who have long been free to operate virtually independently of any real congressional and Executive Branch oversight — to the point where they have become excessively corrupt. DiGenova, who...

    Barr stated: "The thing that’s interesting about this is that this was handled at a very senior level of these departments. It wasn’t handled in the ordinary way that investigations or counterintelligence activities are conducted. It was sort of an ad hoc, small group — and most of these people are no longer with the FBI or the CIA or the other agencies involved." They worked exclusively for two groups of “customers,” officials said. The first was Obama and fewer than 14 senior officials in government. The second was a team of operations specialists at the CIA, NSA and FBI...

    According to the Department of Justice Inspector General, fired FBI Director James Comey is under investigation after leaking classified information to a friend last year, who then passed it along to a reporter. The information was contained in a series of memos written by Comey after meetings and phone calls with President Donald Trump. But despite what the law says about disseminating classified information, Comey may not face conseqences. According to House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, Comey may have saved himself thanks to the exoneration of Hillary Clinton. "Not by the standard he set in the summer of 2016....

    UPDATE: Florida Gov. Rick Scott calls on FBI Director to resign for failing to follow up on tip about Florida shooter (via CBS News): Florida's Republican Gov. Rick Scott is calling on FBI Director Christopher Wray to resign, after the FBI admitted it received a tip about the suspect in the Parkland shooting as recently as January, but failed to follow through on it. The FBI admitted in a statement Friday that it received a call on Jan. 5 detailing concerns about Nikolas Cruz, the 19-year-old law enforcement officials believe is responsible for the deaths of 17 people at Marjory Stoneman...

    The Federal Bureau of Investigation has seen better days. While there is zero evidence of collusion, the political Left thinks Russia’s meddling in our 2016 election helped tilt the race in Donald Trump’s favor. Congress has launched investigations into the matter. Yet, it seems the meddling was also coming from within the halls of the J. Edgar Hoover Building. We have a since demoted DOJ official meeting with the author of the infamous Trump dossier, former MI6 operative Christopher Steele. To boot, his wife worked for the firm that hired Steele during the 2016 election. Concerning other bias, you have...

    There is something rotten at the Federal Bureau of Investigation. I mean all of this is just absurd. We have two FBI agents texting one another, one of which is having an extramarital affair with the other, cryptically talking about “insurance” against a Trump presidency. That text between these two agents was delivered on August 15, 2016. You also have Andrew Weissmann, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s top lieutenant, voicing praise for then-acting Attorney General Sally Yates for refusing to enact President Trump’s executive order on immigration, which got her fired. Then, there’s another DOJ official, Bruce Ohr, who was demoted...

    WASHINGTON — The Senate overwhelmingly confirmed Christopher A. Wray as the next F.B.I. director on Tuesday to steer the United States’ premier law enforcement agency through a politically fraught period as it investigates whether any of President Trump’s associates colluded with the Russian government during last year’s election. The confirmation of Mr. Wray, a former federal prosecutor, is likely to be a relief to many agents at the F.B.I. who want a strong director to stave off any attempts by the White House to meddle in its investigations. The deteriorating relationship between Mr. Trump and the previous F.B.I. director, James...

    Shariah law is like a mysterious “other” for most Westerners, who may know of its intolerance of other religions and its criminal codes that call for stoning adulterers and the cutting off of limbs for petty thieves. But few know there is a portion of Shariah that includes a thriving area of finance — deals for real estate and business transactions taking place all over the world with Arab money. President Donald Trump’s pick to head the FBI, Christopher Wray, surely knows something about this segment of Shariah. Wray is a litigation partner at King & Spalding, which is one...

    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) said he is visiting the White House on Thursday but denied reports he's on the short list to replace FBI Director James Comey. “I’m not a candidate for FBI director,” he said in a New York Magazine story published Wednesday. “I am not. The president’s not gonna ask me, and I’m not gonna be FBI director.” He declined to say whether he is meeting personally with President Trump on Thursday, saying: “If I am, I wouldn’t say.” Giuliani added that he approves of Trump’s decision to fire Comey. “I think the president...
