Skip to comments.2020: Biden Snagged in Spygate? (What does Slo Joe know?)
Posted on 04/11/2020 11:48:58 AM PDT by Libloather
By Breitbart. Vice President Joe Biden was documented as being present in the Oval Office for a conversation about the controversial Russia probe between President Obama, disgraced ex-FBI chief James Comey, Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and other senior officials including Obamas national security advisor Susan Rice.
In an action characterized as odd last year by then-Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, Rice memorialized the confab in an email to herself describing Obama as starting the conversation by stressing his continued commitment to ensuring that every aspect of this issue is handled by the Intelligence and law enforcement communities by the book.
Grassley, in a letter to Rice, commented: It strikes us as odd that, among your activities in the final moments on the final day of the Obama administration, you would feel the need to send yourself such an unusual email purporting to document a conversation involving President Obama and his interactions with the FBI regarding the Trump/Russia investigation.
Grassley noted the unusual timing of the email sent by Rice to herself more than two weeks after the January 5, 2017 White House meeting on the Russia investigation, but mere hours before she vacated the White House for the incoming Trump administration. . .
If the timestamp is correct, you sent this email to yourself at 12:15 pm, presumably a very short time before you departed the White House for the last time, Grassley wrote to Rice in a letter seeking clarification on a number of issues regarding the email and the Oval Office briefing at which Biden was documented as being present.

We will never get to the bottom of Spygate because no one wants to admit that the Kenyan from Indonesia is not a natural born citizen and was never eligible under our Constitution.

As Hillary "said," I can't remember my brain my brain's in a blender, it's jello!
On January 13th, 2017, right before Trump took Office, Obama issued an executive order saying ALL 17 US security agencies could have total access to each other. In other words, they were free to engage in collusion .and thats exactly what they did ..long before Obamas E/O.
Pres Obamas maneuver of January 3, 2017-his signing of NSA Data-Sharing Order
Section 2.3 out of AG Lynchs office is the coupe detat to blow out The Deep State.
Obamas original ex/order contains some unusual language particularly the convoluted language
WRT The Strategic Delay of Section 2.3 of Obamas Executive Order 12333.
NOTE WELL: Prior to the formal signing of Section 2.3, greater latitude HAD ALREADY existed within the White House in regards to collection of information especially WRT the Trump Campaign. However, once signed, Section 2.3 granted broad latitude to inter-agency sharing of information.
But by the time Obamas new executive order was signed on January 3, 2017, ALL THAT INFORMATION
WAS ALREADY in the possession of Obama White House.
Thus, Susan Rices January 20, 2017 email to herself takes on an even greater significance b/c no one was ever supposed to know about the REAL meaning of Obamas retroactive actions ..until Rice stupidly laid it all out in an official email.
When Susan Rice stupidly wrote a memo to herself, she inadvertently confessed to a series of crimes that added the time line and inferences about what the outgoing Obama administration illegally concealed from incoming President Trump and his aides.
After-the-fact memos are rarely a good idea
.they reveal things the author never intended
as did Susan Rice in her now-infamous email to herself on Trumps inauguration day.
Suzan skipped down the Yellowbrick Road, along with the mental midgets of the Obama Administration.
Obamas FBI, DOJ, ODNI, CIA and intelligence officials flipped a finger at protocol .and even worse .they were intentionally dishonest with incoming President Trump and key members of his new administration.
Obviously their lack of honesty was a serious issue .but flipping off established protocol had serious ramifications.
Rices was a justification memo
outgoing National Security Advisor Susan Rice (to be replaced by
Gen Lynch) needed to explain why there have been multiple false and misleading statements given to the incoming President Trump and all of his officials.
This is not a CYA memo, this is a justification memo for use AFTER the Trump-Russia collusion/conspiracy narrative collapsed; if the Pelosi-managed impeachment effort failed.
Rices intellectually facile By-The-Book reference refers to she and then-President Obama being told by CIA Director John Brennan, FBIs Comey, DNIs James Clapper, and Deputy AG Sally Yates, that President Trump was the subject of an active counter-intelligence investigation to determine if he was under the influence of the Russian government.
Remember Trump was NEVER given a defensive briefing required when foreign actors are suspected
of trying to subvert a US election.
Even the timing of Rices Oz-ish memo, written 15 minutes prior to the end of the Obama administration, is ex-post-facto useful as evidence of the authors intent .as Susan stupidly confesses to a host of crimes.
What is crucial about Susan Rice and her need to write that last memo is her attempt to craft a record of a COUNTER-INTEL operation that was ongoing and that Obama had instructed that everything be done by the book.
What is unspoken is that during a counter-intel investigation, it is permissible to lie, or in official terms to disseminate disinformation.
As long as the Obama spying was characterized as a counter-intel operation, it was legal to have words and actions left in place that might be discovered as untrue.
In other words, Rices final memo was an attempt to carve out a last minute get-out-of-jail pass for all those involved in the spying.
Heck, Congressional hearings might uncover false and perjured statements on the part of persons in the spy operation to which the response would be So what? It was a Counter-Intel operation.
This is why it was IMPERATIVE for Barr and Durham to investigate the ORIGINS because if the origins revealed no predicate, no basis, no genuine probable cause for launching a counter-intel operation, then Rices feeble stay-out-of-jail memo would fall apart. (h/t john solomon)
It is worth remembering that in AG Barr’s recent comments on this, he used the word counter-intelligence.
He may have known something at the time but he sure doesnt remember itor the office he is running fornow.

According to classic political science and history, after medieval kingdoms based on the will of God and the king, modern, secular and liberal States arose. Those modern States are sustained on secular laws that have the purpose of protecting social welfare and individual autonomy. Apparently, most States in the west have adopted democracy, impartial laws, protection of human rights and, therefore, have moved towards modernity.
It is a common idea that crime, as in movies, is about bad guys confronting good guys, and that they only sporadically get in touch through bribery or infiltration. However, data shows that a gray area of massive collaboration and co-optation between good and bad guys is constantly forming: subversive and counter-subversive groups, public servants, politicians, candidates, and different private agents working together to define the rules of societies, to shape institutions according to their partial and criminal interests.
In States in which those situations are observed, most of formal democracy is preserved and fulfilled, which means that bills are proposed, laws approved, and electoral processes are held. Beyond this form, members of criminal networks are the actors in those processes.

Gulag Americana 2020.
In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousand fold in the future. When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.

“In an action characterized as odd last year by then-Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley...”
Odd? Is that the best charactarization that we can expect from a senior senate Republican? No wonder nobody has been charged with anything yet. No political push.
On special occasions, he can remember back a century or more. As he noted recently:
"We cannot let this, weve never allowed any crisis from the Civil War straight through to the pandemic of 17, all the way around, 16, we have never, never let our democracy sakes second fiddle, way they, we can both have a democracy and elections and, at the same time, correct the public health.
I'm sure ol' Joe loves to reminisce, about anything that comes to mind (real or imaginary). 'When I was a whippersnapper, about the time those dog-faced pony soldiers rustled our entire herd of chinchillas, but maybe a year or so before Amelia Earhart and Sir Edmund Hillary stole my mother's favorite Victrola, I remember...'
Please keep in mind you don’t know what you don’t know
What’s more at least some of what you think you know is wrong.
It doesn’t matter what he doesn’t remember. The convicting evidence will come from the testimony of others saving their own hides
Definitely a CYA move.
Well, so-far I’m right. And I don’t think I can be demonstrated to be ‘wrong’ about what “I don’t know”. Care to enlighten me?
No, so far you think you’re right because remember, you don’t know what you don’t know.
I can’t tell you what is transpiring in secret because I don’t know either.
But I do know the President is not stupid
Quid Pro Joe.
FWIW, I recently talked to a structural engineer, who stated that "what we don't know that we don't know" is the most dangerous aspect of his profession. Apparently, that's what can cause buildings to collapse and get people killed....
