AG Barr: “The Inspector General’s Report reflects a clear abuse of the FISA process.”

Pundits and political hacks are out in full force with the release of the Inspector General’s Report⏤problem is most of them have it all wrong. The IG Report is not an enforcement document, nor does it point-out guilt⏤it is not designed to be either.
The purpose of the IG Report is to state verbatim what happened, what occurred, based on interviews within those organizations involved who have been investigated. It addresses the timeline, process, decisions made, action(s) taken and implemented by those in the Obama administration. The IG Report is not designed to propose, order, or direct who should be prosecuted. That’s Attorney General Barr’s and his special attorney John Durham’s responsibility to make that call⏤by way of determining and making criminal referrals.
Finally, understand that the IG Report does not indict, nor is it an indictment of what occurred and those involved. Nor does it recommend prosecution. Likewise, the IG Report does not interpret the law. That is the role and responsibility of the Attorney General.
Both Barr and Durham have already refuted the IG Report well over a month ago. They have been conducting internal investigations across the national security community, as well as with a number of foreign governments with ties to those agencies. Over the course of the last several months Barr and Durham have presented criminal referrals on FBI employees and leadership. The justification for these were criminal referrals⏤was the falsifying evidence in order to gain and influence FISA warrants from the FISA Court judge. It is a matter of time – those are forthcoming.
The authorizers of the FISA Warrants were FBI Director James Comey, Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe. They gave authority. Illegal authority! Now it will be up to Barr to indict and to prosecute.
Now Bill Barr and John Durham must present their findings, indictments and prosecution for the illegal activity by those in the FBI and Justice Department, as well as the Intelligence Community. They need to show that Comey, Yates, and company used unlawful authority to gain false justification to spy on the Trump campaign and Donald Trump’s associates.
Attorney General William Barr released a statement earlier today:
“The Inspector General’s report now makes clear that the FBI launched an intrusive investigation of a U.S. presidential campaign on the thinnest of suspicions that, in my view, were insufficient to justify the steps taken … In the rush to obtain and maintain FISA surveillance of Trump campaign associates, FBI officials misled the FISA court, omitted critical exculpatory facts from their filings, and suppressed or ignored information negating the reliability of their principal source,” Barr said, adding that “the malfeasance and misfeasance detailed in the Inspector General’s report reflects a clear abuse of the FISA process.”

There is another aspect of the investigation itself that pretty much everyone has failed to recognize or understand⏤Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz seems to have demonstrated he is likely just another corrupt member of the Obama DC Swamp!

Mr. Horowitz is in fact an Obama administration appointee. Horowitz has been there since 2012, and no doubt making him an Obama loyalist, despite what others have said. Understand to be politically appointed or nominated to a key position during the Obama administration, you had to have been an Obama stalwart and partisan.

Deep inside the organizational structure of the Justice Department, the FBI, as well as the FISA Court system, there are potentially other loyalists, hence the Deep State who hold or who have held internal keys, so-to-speak, that provide critical knowledge, information, and insight of how things went down and how actions transpired. This pertains to a number of officials coordinating with or internal to the FBI and Justice Department who were involved in obtaining and or authorizing both the Carter Page FISA warrants, as well as the other warrants. These people remain to date in the department and or still working within the system.

One key individual is Dana Boente, another Obama political appointee who is now the current general counsel in the FBI, now under and answering directly to FBI Director Christopher Wray. Going back to the April 2017 FISA renewal (remember Donald Trump was then President) was in fact approved by Mr. Boente and former FBI Director James Comey, who was harshly criticized in the first separate report released on Thursday. Note that Mr. Boente later resigned in October 2017 from the Justice Department six months after he approved the illegal FISA warrant, one has to wonder why⏤was the pressure too much, or was it fear of possible accessory to the felonious FISA approval act. But surprisingly, he was back within 3-months in his current role as general counsel to the FBI Director.

Notwithstanding, there are two people of interest, who need to be heard from when the forthcoming FISA-related version of the Justice Department Inspector General report is released. The two individuals that need to be heard from in order to better understand what the presiding judge of the 11-member FISA Court are Rosemary Collyer. I believe it is imperative to hear from Judge Collyer to get an idea of how the people who “lied” to the FISA Court be dealt with, what will happen to them? The other person we will want to hear from is none other than Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, who by the way makes appointments to the FISA Court. Further, he is also responsible for the supervision of the Court. While I believe all have been interviewed, what they revealed remains to be seen.

If anyone believes that both President Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr are void of the facts at this point of the scandal⏤well let’s just say they’re ignorant. Trust me, the President and Mr. Barr know everything⏤I can for the most part guarantee they are closely watching every development in real time.

Exposing Russia as a Military Fraud, Is China Next?

If we had looked closely in those intervening years, we could have seen the clues of their demise. Many in my field (CE/CI) did, but the world had changed. Politicians facing the prospective loss of political control through fear-mongering of something ⏤ Russia then and China now ⏤ limited any real responses that could have achieved a safe world with Russia in it…

Take a Look at the Positive Side of Anarchy

The only way to achieve liberty and peace is to restore law and order. And the only way to restore law and order is to literally crush the forces of evil. When that begins to happen, we do actually see the positive side of tyranny and anarchy. Conflict is a bedfellow of oppression. Therefore we must end the conflict and, in doing so, end the tyranny. Here’s the positive side of this war…

Be the one — no longer willing to huddle together in the helpless band — the one who dares to join the fight.

Major Medical Mystery: Why Some People Despite Exposure Don’t Get COVID

A small fraction of Americans have escaped COVID infection.

Correcting America’s Course Back to the Constitutional Rule of Law

The US Constitution must scrupulously be followed, especially by the judiciary. It is not for judges to make laws; it is for them to observe and rule on the constitutionality of issues before them.

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Most ominously, no American administration has ever seemed so entirely unconcerned about hemorrhaging political capital. And that lack of concern about voters’ approval can only mean that this administration no longer believes it relies on political capital (the consent of the governed) for power. We can only assume that this Marxist-aligned administration intends to authorize itself with whatever power it requires to achieve its ends…

Criminal Intimidation Led By Schumer and Pelosi are America’s Domestic Terrorists

The SCOTUS leak was explicitly designed to tip the balance back to Progressivisms demands and rally the Democrat base to intimidate conservatives, political and business leaders by threats of violence because the country is in a Biden mess, one he created in January 2021 to reflect his party’s image as one that clings to the failed philosophy of Marx and Engles…
