All I know is that Sara Carter says the OIG report will be out two weeks BEFORE Thanksgiving. Except that I heard separately that it would be out two weeks AFTER Thanksgiving. I've linked to both FR and Sara. I've also reformatted it as numbered points. To me, this is "damning," just as Sara says. If you prefer, "explosive" or "bombshell" will also work.
Horowitz Report Will Be Damning. Criminal Referrals Likely.
Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s much anticipated report on his investigation into the FBI’s probe into President Trump’s campaign is expected to be made public before Thanksgiving and the outcome is alleged to contain several criminal referrals, according to sources who spoke with SaraACarter.com.
Horowitz’s investigation on the bureau’s probe into the now debunked theory that Trump colluded with Russia in the 2016 presidential election will more than likely result in the declassification of documents — requested by senior Republican lawmakers for more than several years. These are the same documents President Trump turned over to Attorney General William Barr in May, giving him ‘full and complete authority” to declassify.
Those documents will contain:
1) several classified pages of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act on former Trump campaign advisor Carter Page,
2) exculpatory evidence that was withheld from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court,
3) the so-called ‘Gang of Eight’ folder (which contained exculpatory information), as well as
4) the email chain between FBI investigators in the Russia probe and then-FBI Director James Comey. Those emails also include discussions with lawyers in the DOJ’s national security division. As previously reported, the email chains will contain information that prove the FBI knew prior to obtaining a warrant to spy on Page that former British spy Christopher Steele’s information in his infamous dossier on Trump could not be proven.
5) It is also expected to reveal that the FBI knew that Steele was leaking to the media but then used those media reports as separate evidence in their request for a FISA warrant, known as circular intelligence reporting. Circular reporting is when a law enforcement official uses false confirmation by making a piece of information appear to come from multiple independent sources.
I can't wait. Hopefully Comey has indigestion on Thanksgiving and it's not from too much turkey.ReplyDelete
This is one that, even if it's as big as a telephone book (as reported), I'll have to read it all.Delete
Yes, the day it comes out, I will be reading it front to back.Delete
A telephone book? Do they even print those anymore?Delete
Yancey, I really want to see the inner workings of this. REALLY.
I'm super excited to see the report and curious as to how Fake News will report it.Delete
I don't remember if the following point has already been covered in the comments section. Mollie Hemingway mentioned Eric Ciaramella as the whistleblower. Howard Kurtz looked as though his head would explode. Philippe Reines stunned look was even better.
Please say who FR is, or post a link.ReplyDelete
On the criminal referrals, the whole Beltway crowd (and players in big city Machines) will be holding its breath, out of fear as to who may eventually sing on who.
Um, if you click on the provided link, which is this one ... Horowitz Report Will Be Damning. Criminal Referrals Likely. ... you'll find out soon enough.Delete
My sense of things is, that some of these Machines have seen a spike in $henanigans in recent years.ReplyDelete
If you hover over "Horowitz Report Will Be Damning. Criminal Referrals Likely." you will see that Mr. Wauck did provide a link and that it is to Free Republic.
Thanx for the tip. I was thrown off by the word "both", so didn't see that she had written it for FR.Delete
She didn't. She wrote it for her own web site, which I linked to her name. FR did what they usually did. I often link to pieces when they're picked up by FR because the formatting is nice and clear (albeit usually absent the links). So, in any event, I said "both" because I linked both sites.Delete
