SPECIAL COUNSEL NEEDED FOR HILLARY, COMEY, AND RUSSIAN DOSSIER DISORDERS

Reps. Jordan and Gaetz: Special counsel needed as questions mount on Clinton, Comey, Russian Dossier and more

“Mr. Attorney General, it’s time to do your job.

Why in 2016 did FBI Director James Comey call the Clinton Investigation a “matter,” not an investigation? After all, Mr. Comey wasn’t Director of the Federal Bureau of Matters.

Why in 2016 did FBI Director Comey begin drafting an exoneration letter for Secretary Clinton, whom he called “grossly negligent” in an early draft of the letter, before completing the investigation?  Before interviewing several witnesses? And before interviewing Secretary Clinton?

Why in 2016 did James Comey and the Justice Department give Cheryl Mills, Secretary Clinton’s Chief of Staff, an immunity agreement for turning over her laptop computer? Typically, the Department would issue a subpoena or get a warrant and seize it. Why in this case did the FBI agree to destroy the laptop?

Why in 2016—one day before the Benghazi report was released and five days before Secretary Clinton was interviewed by the FBI—did Attorney General Lynch meet with former President Clinton on the tarmac in Phoenix?

Why did the intelligence community in the final months of the Obama Administration unmask names at a record rate?

Why in the days following the meeting, and when emailing with the public relations staff at the Justice Department, did Loretta Lynch use the pseudonym “Elizabeth Carlisle?” If your conversation with the former President was only about golf and grandchildren, then why not use your real name?

Why was the decision on whether to charge Secretary Clinton made by FBI Director Comey and not the Attorney General?

Why did James Comey publicize the Clinton Investigation?

Why in 2016 did the FBI pay for the Russian Dossier? It’s been reported that in addition to the Clinton Campaign and the Democratic National Committee paying FusionGPS for the dossier, the FBI also “reimbursed” Christopher Steele, author of the dossier.

Why was FusionGPS co-founder Glenn Simpson meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya both before and after her meeting with Donald Trump, Jr.?

Why is the FBI so reluctant to tell Congress and the American people if the dossier was the basis for a FISA court order permitting the government to spy on Americans associated with President Trump’s campaign? If the dossier was a legitimate intelligence document relied on by the court, then why not just tell the country?

Why on January 6, 2017 did James Comey brief President-Elect Trump on the dossier? Again, if the dossier was a legitimate intelligence document, then why wait two months after the election to inform the President-Elect?

Why did the Obama Administration leak to CNN that Mr. Comey had briefed President-Elect Trump on the dossier? Several media outlets had the dossier prior to the briefing, yet no one would print it because most of the document could not be substantiated. In his Congressional testimony, Mr. Comey himself called the dossier “salacious and unverified.” As pointed out in The Federalist, did the fact that the FBI Director had briefed the President-Elect on the dossier give it the “legitimacy” the press needed to go ahead and print something they knew was not accurate?

Why did the intelligence community in the final months of the Obama Administration unmask names at a record rate?

Why, after Mr. Comey was fired on May 9, 2017, was it so critical for a Special Counsel be named to examine possible Trump/Russia collusion? So critical that James Comey leaked a government document about his conversations with President Trump through a friend to the New York Times.

Why is the Special Counsel Robert Mueller? According to The Hill and Circa News, in 2009 and 2010, the FBI through an informant learned Russian companies seeking to do business in the United States were involved in kickbacks and bribes. Yet, FBI Director Robert Mueller did not inform Congress and did not inform the Committee of Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), the entity responsible for the decision on whether to approve the Uranium One deal.

Why did Robert Mueller not inform CFIUS? And why did the Justice Department put a gag order on the informant?

Finally, why won’t Attorney General Jeff Sessions—the person with the visibility and responsibility to answer these questions—do his job?

On July 27, 2017, twenty House Republican members of the Judiciary Committee sent a letter to the Attorney General calling for a Special Counsel to get answers to the above questions.

On September 28, 2017, five House Republican members of the Judiciary committee met with the Attorney General and Justice Department staff to inquire about the July letter.

The Justice Department’s response? Silence.

It’s time for Jeff Sessions to name a Special Counsel and get answers for the American people. If not, he should step down.

Republican Jim Jordan represents Ohio’s Fourth District in the U.S. House of Representatives and is a member of the House Judiciary Committee and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

Republican Matt Gaetz  represents Florida’s 1st congressional district in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Mueller….The Bureaucratic Establishment’s Heinrich Himmler

WHY MUELLER SHOULD NOT BE SPECIAL COUNSEL

“I believe any reasonable observer, if he considers the matter independently of whose ox is being gored, would agree that it is problematic to have a special counsel with a broad mandate to investigate, unbound by some of the normal constraints of a prosecutor, a campaign and a presidency. Reasonable observers will disagree about the extent of the danger, and about the countervailing value of having such a prosecutor in certain circumstances.

However, it seems undeniable that even a non-conflicted, non-partisan, non-abusive special counsel can severely hamper the ability of the president to perform the job the American people elected him to do. In an extreme case, such a prosecutor can destroy a presidency for no good reason.

That’s why, if we are to have a special counsel, we must be satisfied that he is non-conflicted, non-partisan, and non-abusive.

Does Robert Mueller satisfy all three of these criteria? Does he satisfy any of them?

Given his friendship and ties with James Comey, there is a good case that Mueller is conflicted. Comey is at the center of key aspects of the investigation — alleged collusion and, especially, alleged obstruction of justice. And it was Comey whose manipulation and leakingresulted, as intended, in the appointment of a special counsel.

Mueller has a reputation (deserved or not, I don’t know) for being non-partisan. But the same was true of Mueller’s friend and admirer James Comey. And we all understand that being a Republican is not inconsistent with hating Donald Trump.

It would, of course, be unfair to suggest on this basis alone that Mueller is anti-Trump. But if we examine the people Mueller has hired to work on this investigation, concerns of partisanship come to the fore. It is well-documented that Mueller has assembled a staff full of partisan Democrats, many of whom contributed money to Trump’s opponent in the very election that gave rise to the investigation.

If, as I believe, Mueller and his team fail the non-conficted and non-partisan tests, then he ought not have the power that has been invested in him. I should also note that when Mueller was given this power, it wasn’t known that he would staff up with anti-Trump Democrats; nor was the full extent of his conflict understood.

Accordingly, I think Mueller deserves to be sacked whether or not he acted abusively so far. Has he? I don’t know enough facts or enough about criminal prosecutions to answer.

I do know that leaking news of an impending grand jury indictment is abusive and, as I understand it, illegal. But I don’t know whether Mueller’s team is responsible for the leaking that has occurred so far, including this weekend’s leak that an indictment was about to come down.

Trey Gowdy, a Republican and former prosecutor, has encouraged Republicans to “give [Mueller] a chance to do his job.” He says, “the result will be known by the facts.”

I respect Gowdy, but there are problems with his statement. So far Mueller has had not just a chance, but free rein to do his job. We already know some of the results — (1) a free-wheeling investigation that appears to go well beyond the issue of Russian interference in the 2016 election and alleged collusion by the Trump campaign and (2) a staff full of partisan Democrats.

By the time Mueller and his team of anti-Trumpers reach their “result,” they may have severely impaired this presidency for no good reason.

What can be done to counter Mueller? The first step is to criticize his investigation. Trump did so this weekend in a series of tweets. Other Republicans went on the Sunday shows to raise questions about Team Mueller.

I doubt these efforts will be effective except, perhaps, for the purpose of laying the groundwork for measures that will actually block Mueller, if things come to that. These measures aren’t hard to identify, but discussing them is beyond the scope of this post……”

(Note by ghr:)  “Special counsel” is a witch hunter who has been reduced to,  unconstitutionally given,  the authority to attack, spy on  anyone, accuse anyone, everyone he/she choses for political purposes by merely hunting to see what accusation might work.

Our once honorable Democratic Party has left the world of democracy.   Biggest Businesses like Amazon, criminals……black racists, fanatic feminists of all colors, shapes, sexes, and sizes, legal and illegal immigrants, college instructors and  children  have gathered together to suck America to death from the single teat,  single party fascistic socialism.

Hillary and Her Podesta Group Are in DEEP TROUBLE!

Podesta Group now part of special counsel probe into Russian collusion: Report

by Sally Persons  at the Washington Times

“Tony Podesta and The Podesta Group are now being investigated as part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into collusion claims between the Trump campaign and Russia, NBC News reported.

The group became part of the probe after Mr. Mueller’s team looked into former Trump campaign head Paul Manafort’s finances. Mr. Podesta is the brother to John Podesta, the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, although he is not part of Mr. Mueller’s investigation at this time.

According to the report, the group was connected to a public relations campaign for a nonprofit in Ukraine called European Centre for a Modern Ukraine. Tony Podesta’s group worked on the campaign, but now Mr. Mueller’s team is looking at possible criminal activity through violation of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, NBC News said. The Podesta Group apparently did not filed the necessary paperwork disclosing its work in Ukraine until after it was reported in the media.

The ECMU was reportedly supported by a pro-Russia political party in the Ukraine for which Mr. Manafort worked as a consultant.

In a statement to NBC News, the Podesta Group said it was “cooperating fully” with Mr. Mueller’s office.”

Gun Control, Civilization, and the TROUBLE WITH WOMEN

I was born in 1934.  I was born male, therefore,  born to be curious.  Nearly every mystery of life possible could stop my minute, my hour, my day.   I wanted to know what, who, and why, but not too swift on  practicing the how  beyond  my two major careers,  school teaching teens and teaching and practicing  landscape garden artistry.

I was born and taught at a time when learning knowledge was vital for country, me, a human  male, and my  future family,  to prepare me for adulthood.

God, family, society, culture, the neighborhood and  the nation depended upon me, when grown up,  to lead my family, my Church, our America to an ever better world.

Until the end of World War II almost all of my school and Sunday school teachers were old maids.  They were in command of their positions then, as not now.  I was profoundly dyslexic, a disorder not known then, which profoundly crippled my ability to read beyond a headline or paragraph.   Instead, unknown to all then,  I luckily commanded vision and memory well.   This confused my teachers.   Many a time they took me aside from second grade through fifth, the War years, placed their right handed fore finger three inches from my face to remind me, and explained:

“Glenn Ray…… THERE ARE TWO REASONS WHY YOU MUST LEARN KNOWLEDGE!!

1. LEARNING KNOWLEDGE WILL MAKE YOU CLOSER TO GOD, FOR GOD KNOWS ALL!   and, 2.  LEARNING KNOWLEDGE WILL HELP YOU MAKE BETTER DECISIONS WHEN YOU VOTE!”…..this, in public school, by the way, GOD BLESS THEM!

These reverent women, most in their fifties, were well prepared to teach knowledge,  for the culture was disciplined.    The dominant male culture then  wouldn’t allow disorder or unlearnedness.   Adult females were caring for family at home and in the neighborhoods.

Today’s hordes of unlearneds, instead, wrestle with their own  children without much knowledge of their own required in  today’s  culture, and  without reverence for learning.     In countless communities in America today,  there is no father around,  nor mothers at home to nurse and guide, and Churchless.

I eventually did learn that the human male animal is born a killer by Nature’s GOD.  When young,  I was told the ancient Greeks claimed:  “There is neither good nor bad……ONLY THINKING MAKES IT SO”.   The human male  fought and sought Truth for centuries.  He, not she, has created the industry and knowings of today.

The human male is born to seek Truth regardless of its degree of discovery.  HE, NOT SHE,  is Nature’s  protector of his offspring, his flock, his tribe, his country.

The human female animal has delivered “the He’s” who have been able to build, defend, and destroy what has been developed for modern human life and death…..and “the She’s” who have continued to bear the species.

The human female animal is born ditsy, however.   Seeking knowledge is not at all her primary drive.  To “the She”  FEELINGS COUNT FIRST over TRUTH!   Safety also dominates Truth, at least in search.

Today, pharmaceuticals are absorbed in America like candy.   America’s  human animals are sold pills and thrills  are good for  health resulting in the rise of  all sorts of sexes, shapes and sizes of dependent people.   Big Business profits from conning its customers by selling health whether good or bad.

Today’s American adults  under age 50  have been made exceptionally uneducated in accumulating truth’s knowledge by  the leftwing educational  establishment from K through graduate school.   Every year a little knowledge becomes ever more dangerous.

Twenty million legal and illegal immigrants invading  from fascistic, corrupt, and poor nations, have settled  in  California over the past decade or so.   They  know nothing about Truth of  our American centuries of struggle to become and remain free of  leftist fascist tyrant rule until now.

Our  American urban black populations have been kept in Leftist Democrat Party stockades of collective ignorance for generations being bribed by the Democrat Party itself!

What does the above have to do with gun laws?    Only ditsies,  mostly  Democrats believe, and believe hysterically,  that its the gun, not people,  that kills and maims people.    Many Republicans also  vote for “however, whatever” is needed to win an election, just to stay in office.

Whatever happened to the Godfearing America of my childhood and youth, those years before the vulgars’ revolt of the late 1960s  and the beginning of the disappearance of American JudeoChristianity?

Skip the ditsy….What must a free America need to do to begin its  rise from its cultural  tar pits the  leftwing has caused now  over the past half century?  Will feminists ever overcome their ditsy disorders?   Will the American family ever be restored, led again by JudeoChristian principles, or is the evil of atheism here to stay?     Can laws stop the lawless?    Do read on below!

TIME FOR A FULL INVESTIGATION OF THE FBI!

by Roger L. Simon  at  pjmedia:

..

“What happens to a country whose most important police force — and its key investigators — is no longer telling the truth to the citizens of that nation? Nothing good, I’m sure most would agree.  There’s almost no point in going through all the analogies to despotic regimes. Writers from George Orwell to Arthur Koestler have already done it for us.

But those analogies come immediately to mind following two revelations regarding our Federal Bureau of Investigation that surfaced this week. In one instance, the FBI refused to turn over documents regarding the Hillary Clinton emails because of — wait for it — “lack of public interest.”

The head of the FBI Records Management Division wrote Ty Clevenger, a New York Attorney who filed the FOIA request in March 2016, to inform him that his request was being denied in late August.

“You have not sufficiently demonstrated that the public’s interest in disclosure outweighs personal privacy interests of the subject,” the letter, obtained by Fox News, reads. “Therefore, records regarding your subject are withheld pursuant to FOIA exemptions.”

It’s hard to imagine what was going on in the mind of Records Management Division head David M. Hardy when he wrote — or was forced to write by some unknown superior — such a risible lie, but things have only gotten worse from there.  Now we learn that then FBI director James Comey may never have planned to find Clinton guilty in the first place.

While the transcripts of those interviews are heavily redacted, they indicate that Comey started working on an announcement clearing Clinton in April or May of last year, before the FBI interviewed 17 witnesses in the case, including Clinton and some of her top aides.

Clinton was interviewed for several hours on July 2, just three days before Comey’s announcement.

Defenders of Comey insist this early draft exonerating Clinton is standard FBI practice, but, not surprisingly, none of them mention that a similar draft deeming Clinton culpable has not surfaced.  One doubts it exists.

To millions of Americans, Hillary Clinton was as guilty as O.J. Simpson.  You would have to be an imbecile not to think she didn’t know she was doing something illegal secreting her professional emails as secretary of State on a private server hidden in a bathroom. And yet James Comey’s ultimate decision on Clinton depended on her putative ignorance after literally decades of government service……..”  Please read on:

Obama’s Lying Foursome

OBAMA’S LYING QUARTET

by Scott Johnson at PowerLine:

“Rarely has an intelligence apparatus engaged in systematic lying—and chronic deceit about its lying—both during and even after its tenure,” writes Victor Davis Hanson. “Yet the Obama Administration’s four top security and intelligence officials time and again engaged in untruth, as if peddling lies was part of their job descriptions.” In his column “A lying quartet,”Dr. Hanson indicts Susan Rice, James Comey, John Brennan and James Clapper for lying in high office above and beyond the call of partisan duty.

Dr. Hanson hits the high points of the “series of whoppers” retailed to the American public by this deeply unsavory crew. I particularly appreciate his reaching back to recall Brennan’s farcical reassurance that jihad was “a legitimate tenet of Islam, meaning to purify oneself or one’s community.” Dr. Hanson responds: “Tell that to the incinerated victims of self-proclaimed jihadist Mohammed Atta or those beheaded by ISIS.” Yes, if only Hillary Clinton had prevailed over Donald Trump, Brennan would be in position to vouch for the bona fides of Hamas and Hezbollah in their quest for self-improvement.

Dr. Hanson optimistically asserts that these patronizing liars have been “orphaned and discredited.” Yet they are still called on to pass judgment on the Trump administration as though they speak with Olympian detachment. Nevertheless, writing from his background as a classicist and military historian, Dr. Hanson delivers the kind of catharsis that Aristotle found in Greek tragedy….”

FBI Misses Third Deadline to TURN OVER SUBPOENAED DOCUMENTS!

Byron York: Showdown looms over Trump dossier; FBI misses third deadline to turn over subpoenaed documents

..
by Byron York  at Washington Examiner:
..
“A third deadline has now passed for the FBI and Justice Department to give the House Intelligence Committee subpoenaed documents related to the Trump dossier. And for a third time, the bureau has not produced the material.The dossier is a collection of what former FBI Director James Comey called “salacious and unverified” allegations of collusion between Russia and Trump campaign figures in the 2016 campaign. The Russia allegations were compiled by a former British spy, Christopher Steele, who was commissioned by the opposition research firm Fusion GPS, which is thought to have been paid for the work by wealthy supporters of Hillary Clinton. The FBI reportedly considered taking over the dossier project in the fall of 2016, when the campaign was at its height, leading Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley to say the dossier matter raised “questions about the FBI’s independence from politics.”

Both Grassley and the House Intelligence Committee have been interested in learning if the FBI ever used the “salacious and unverified” dossier as a basis for requesting surveillance on anyone in the Trump circle. Those questions onintensified this week with reports that the FBI wiretapped Trump associate and former campaign chairman Paul Manafort during the transition period.

Four weeks ago, on Aug. 24, the House Intelligence Committee subpoenaed the FBI and Justice Department, seeking all internal FBI reports “incorporating, relying on, or referring to” information provided by Steele, his sources, or Fusion GPS. The committee also asked for documents on any FBI or Justice “efforts to corroborate, validate, or evaluate” Steele’s information. And the subpoena sought any surveillance applications that included any information or were based on any information, provided by Steele.

Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes originally set a Sept. 1 deadline for production of the dossier documents. The FBI did not comply. Nunes then extended the deadline to Sept. 14. The FBI did not comply. Then Nunes extended the deadline again, to Sept. 22. Now, again, the FBI has not complied.

It is not unusual for deadlines to be extended. It is not unusual for feet to be dragged. But at some point, there will have to be a resolution to this standoff. A congressional subpoena is not something a government agency can ignore forever.

But it seems likely that the dispute will eventually rise to a higher level. Nunes is a committee chairman, but he does not speak for the entire House. In addition, he has been weakened by Democratic accusations that he leaked classified information — a matter that seems stuck in the Ethics Committee. Given that, if Nunes is to prevail in the subpoena affair, it seems likely he would have to have the support of Speaker Paul Ryan. If the speaker stands behind Nunes’ efforts, the subpoena will have more weight and be more difficult for the FBI and Justice to defy. If on the other hand, Ryan does not stand behind the chairman, the FBI and Justice might be emboldened to delay forever. (A spokesman for Ryan did not immediately answer phone and email inquiries.)

There’s a lot at stake. Nunes is currently traveling in the Middle East, so it is not clear what the next step will be, or when it will happen. But so far, the FBI and the Justice Department do not appear to be in the mood to comply with the subpoena.
