in my previous professional life i think i would have been thrilled if trey g was the prosecutor i was facing. this fn guy seems clueless.

old comment -

Clinton modus operandi: If caught...quickly get friends to do an "official report"...then quote that report as proof that you have been investigated & exonerated. That is their play over & over.


Now when the Dems are REALLY screwed...

Turn the tables & get friends to start an investigation on the other guy.

These multidimensional chess hypotheses, like Ludlum novels and all X-Files episodes, don't interest me anymore.

My 2 cents:

We are in a race. An 880 with hurdles. First to the finish wins. On one side is a single runner (Mueller) who, though he has a team working under him, is in reality the all eggs in one basket runner - they can't act without going through him. On the other side, you have Trump and various committees and people in different places stationed to produce information and facts to advance his cause. That is a team, complete with batons and handoffs racing the other single runner.

Now the single runner had momentum at the beginning of the race as Trump's team was not all working in concert, but it's an 880. The single runner is running, but he will probably fade as all single runners do.

On the other side, the baton is being handed off between the different runners, each fresh and ready to race flat out.

Each side is throwing hurdles up to impede the other. On the single's side, he is limited to the subordinates he has on hand and to an existing pool of information on which to craft his case.

On the team's side, more players are being added every day, and the probability of uncovering a new pool to swim in and craft a case is expanding.

First side over the finish line wins.

Which side would you bet on?

Jack is Back!

I guess I'll be cheering for the Pats tomorrow.

Why are we just about the only ones who note in public that the DNC and the FBI both used Crowdstrike and GPS Fusion for research instead of doing the investigations themselves? Who signed off on that arrangement?

I'd like to hear the rest of what Gowdy had to say before I throw him under the bus. The snippet quotes Gowdy saying what the memo does not do--he helped write it!--so what was the intent?

Great jobs numbers and finally, after many years, rising wages- and nobody even talks about them. Only Russia, Russia, Russia, despite the fact that, after a year of looking, there is No Collusion!

Janet 🚬

Looking at the tangled webs of corrupt political players & rotten agencies & sketchy leftist organizations...

What in the world does any of that rot have to do with Donald Trump?

He was outside THEIR corrupt system.

Thomas Collins

Gowdy can't say that he hopes the memo, the IG report and other things to come out will convince Mueller he is playing with fire. The Grand Bargain (Mueller wraps up the probe, noone from the Resistance in the FBI and DOJ) can't be explicitly talked about.

Thomas Collins

Add "faces indictment" before the end of the parenthetical.

mad jack

frau: i'm with the president on this. why isn't this investigation over as of yesterday? the memo puts the whole dossier/fisa matter in the crapper and the mueller appointment was based on the comey leak of the dossier/fisa case. wtf does gowdy think is going on here other than that? manafort? he's an idiot in my mind until proven otherwise. they are attempting to subvert the elected President of the US on pure bs and they have been caught redhanded. end it now.

Janet 🚬

Why are we just about the only ones who note in public that the DNC and the FBI both used Crowdstrike and GPS Fusion for research instead of doing the investigations themselves? Who signed off on that arrangement?

That's a great question.

Thomas Collins

Trump doesn't have enough political support to shut this down now, mad jack. However, after the IG report and further reports come out, Mueller will figure out indicting Trump or recommending impeachment will start an uncivil war.

mad jack

TC: why can't he say this investigation needs to be over? f the grand bargain. things have gone way too far to think the bad guys get to walk away from this stink clean.

Rocco

I don't know about Wictor's theory there. He wants us to believe that Rosenstein was setting up a sting to capture a dirty FISA judge by signing a warrant to spy on President Trump. Isn't that a terrible chess move, like putting your king in check with a pawn?

mad jack

it disturbs me to no end that our elected representatives seem so passive in the face of what appears to be a slow motion coup to undo a presidential election. i know the memo only came out on friday so who knows what happens going forward but when people like gowdy seem o throw cold water on their own work product it drives me crazy.

daddy on iPad

I feel like the Red Queen. I have to run as fast as possible just to keep up with the thread, and way the heck faster than that to catch up. I am behinder than ever but oh well. The daughter and I today toured The Huntington gardens/museum today in Pasadena. Apparently it is world famous for its art (Gainsborough's Blue Boy, etc) but we blew that off and did some of the interesting gardens. Really enjoyed the strange varieties in the desert sort of Cactus gardens---very bizarre forms of succulents from around the planet in unbelievable shapes that even a Heironymous Bosch could not imsgine. The other gardens were OK, but then we did the Science Museum at the place with their very early books: Chaucer, Gutenberg, Milton, then tons of early works by Copernicus, Kepler, Tycho, Galileo, Newton and on up. Very interesting and well worth the visit, even if it did leave me another 300 comments more behind than ever

Thomas Collins

It's not only Congress critters, mad jack. Because of the way fake media has reported this, a good chunk of the public would view shutting down Mueller as unacceptable, just as a good chunk would view an impeachment recommendation by Mueller as unacceptable. I agree it's maddening that fake media still has significant sway over public opinion, but as a certain coach with an activity tomorrow might say, it is what it is.

Thomas Collins

More in addition to the memo will come out, mad jack, that will undercut the Resistance. And at the moment, Trump is not behind 28-3, as a certain team that ultimately won was last year.

Thomas Collins

And speaking of the Super Bowl, my prediction is 34-17 Patriots, with Amendola as MVP. Nick Foles will turn out to have shot his bolt against the Vikes. And no, Philly fans, even if I am embarrassingly wrong, I'm not painting myself Eagles green.

madjack and TC,

Are you forgetting about the bloodletting on tomorrow's Sunday chat shows?

By the time they are all over with, you'd think Nunes and Trump have handed Putin the key to the White House and Congress. Nothing positive or on their side will come of them even Fox with Wallace. America will be confused and Trump's numbers will come down from 49%. Watch.

Thomas Collins

I didn't mean that as a shot against Atlanta, Stephanie. I think any team with the good sense to have a BC guy as its starting QB is just fine!

Stephanie Nene Not your normal Grandma

Alexander Sipio on FB akes an excellent point...

It occurs to ask: What was Hillary, what was obama, really up to by spying on Trump?

Weaponizing our government against our citizens was a strategy - not a tactic. It was years in the making. It was F&F, IRS, DHS...

All these people in mid-2016 KNEW she had it in the bag. Was she, with the help of obama, just laying the groundwork for a true police state after her coronation?

I doubt these people, obama holdovers, were seriously concerned about keeping their jobs under his heir. The idea they were “auditioning” for Hillary seems naive.

Was she just normalizing using the government and the IC against Americans; lying to courts, unmasking citizens, paving the way to the Left’s goal: a Stalinist State?

The IC is designed & funded to spy on our enemies. Can anyone truthfully say the Left has any greater enemies than free Americans? Obviously not radical Islam. Obviously not Russia or China, or the totalitarian EU.

Why would they NOT point the NSA , FBI, etc., at us rather than ... at whom?

It seems contrary to logic that a candidate & a party who KNEW they were going to win would set this all up just for a tactical goal they were certain they’d already achieved, rather than the strategic goal of overthrowing America, toward which they’ve been working since the 1960s & before.

Steph, the truth is the most obvious thing of all.
Rodham crazed power. The Clintons kept the well paid sleaze army well fed during the Obama years. Obama was in way over his head, and used power in any way he saw fit. The POWER and RICE unmaskings illustrate that his sycophants would do whatever they were instructed to do. Much like Bill the Rapist changing the culture to shrugging their shoulders at BLOW JOBS with INTERNS, and lying to grand juries....Obama could get away with ANYTHING, because of the MFM and the RACE CARD......the CULTURE.....slid into the toilet and NO ONE who worked for OBAMA was ever held accountable for anything. LOIS LERNER should have taught us that. So RODHAM feared nothing. She still doesn't. Her fuktard ACT at the GRAMMY'S should be emblematic of that. Her server in a DENVER shitter should have sent shivers the spines of our INTEL LEADERS. It didn't. It was excused and the FBI SHITCANNED the investigation, and in fact Lynch ordered it be called A MATTER. Lynch and the Rapist on board the A.G.'s JET, should scare AMERICA to death. We're not in KANSAS anymore.

The David Plouffe Twitter post, which I have memorized because I thought it was so evil:

"Trump must not only be defeated but destroyed, so that his kind shall never rise again."

They saw the rise of an outsider as a threat to their masterful game plan, and a person who must serve as an example to all of us little people. If they destroyed a billionaire celebrity, what hope would we have?

These bastards have earned our vigilant suspicion of any and all of their actions taken behind closed doors.

"But the reality is, a lot of people especially our union guys. A lot of our union guys…they’ll do whatever you want. They’re rock and roll.

#PayForPrint where media 'news' outlets take money from paying political clients thru middlemen like #FusionGPS are also going to be exposed in this.

That's why I include Glenn Simpson & Christopher Steele here.

Working from JournoList, I believe Fusioin GPS had a 2-way operation with reporters.

1. Pay them for intelligence.
2. Place stories with them, for pay, said pay from the Clinton campaign with Fusion getting a cut.

"Minimally corroborated" seems to be the final official FBI assessment of the dossier they vouched for to, it turns out, multiple judges.

jimmyk

One thing I read in Althouse comments that seems important, maybe already covered here (and I don't know what the source is, but it sounds right :)):

Apparently Page had been under surveillance of some sort since 2013, but under a Title VII FISA warrant, which is weaker. The October 2016 application was to raise it to Title I, which importantly allowed them access to all conversations between Page and whoever, going back in time. And of course it was the phony dossier that they used to obtain this higher-level warrant.

This is partly in response to the apologists who say "Page had already been under investigation for years," so obviously this warrant was a nothingburger.

Captain Hate

Porch is right; we're in Bizarro World when those FBI turds don't have to prove the bona fides of that trash dossier. To hell with those third rate flatfoots; they've become worthless by design due to leaders who don't give flying fuck about security starting with Slick.

From a short article referenced below:

So far, not one Democrat has broken ranks. They will surely find procedural problems with the House memo. They will continue to wage their fight, a la Hollywood congressman Adam Schiff, on behalf of “the resistance.” But a resistance is not an opposition. The numerous landmines Obama and Clinton left behind them, intending to waylay the initially awkward Trump administration, are starting to detonate—on Democrats.

Exactly, Jimmy’s, that’s why I noted above that the October FISA warrant was based on a showing by the gunning of probable cause that Page was a full-fledged active Russian spy engaged in espionage.
That finding allowed them to spy on him and ANYONE he interacted with

And that is why there is full frontal assault now by the Dems and he media to make sure the resultant contributions meet with the same discount. They all know where this leads and it is going to be their legacy. Seditionists.

But EVEN armed with that, one wonders whether they strayed beyond its scope - especially given that by October 2016, Page had no role whatsoever in the Trump project.
So now we need to see what this warrant was used to produce

Capn, these fuxstix still pretend they are on the side of the ANGELS. Strzok hated TRUMP, Strzok let RODHAM SKATE, Strzok changed the terminology of COMEY'S findings on RODHAM to reflect verbage that did not meet a criminal finding. Strzok and Page chatted about an insurance policy against TRUMP winning. Strzok gave immunity to RODHAM'S partners in crime, Strzok backed the DOSSIER despite knowing who paid for it. McCabe has already been SHITCANNED for malfeasance and bias.

In regard to Gen Flynn, for example, routine wiretapping of the Russian ambassador would have collected the phone conversations between Flynn and the ambassador. But not the conversations between Flynn and the Trump team about those phone calls.
What exactly did Flynn say to Strokh? Did he lie about his convo with Kysilak, or did he lie about his convo with the transition team?
If the latter, that may have been a trap.

Reminds me of that comment from that Obama EPA official in 2012, Al Armendariz:

I was in a meeting once and I gave an analogy to my staff about my philosophy of enforcement, and I think it was probably a little crude and maybe not appropriate for the meeting but I’ll go ahead and tell you what I said. It was kind of like how the Romans used to conquer little villages in the Mediterranean. They’d go into a little Turkish town somewhere, they’d find the first five guys they saw and they would crucify them. And then you know that town was really easy to manage for the next few years. ...you make examples out of people who are...not compliant...hit them as hard as you can and you make examples out of them, and there is a deterrent effect there...that won’t happen unless you have somebody out there making examples of people...you go aggressively after them. And we do have some pretty effective enforcement tools...So, that’s our general philosophy.”

Yep. Crucify your enemies publicly. Hell of a "general philosophy" for governing from Officials in a Constitutional Republic, but there you go.

exdem, PAGE was already on the FBI's radar. Every single person in any way associated with the TRUMP campaign was run thru FBI and other computers.
Page was an ENTREE into spying on TRUMP, with plausible deniability.

For example: supposing Flynn was asked: ‘what did you say to the ambassador?’, and answered that truthfully.
But then was asked ‘what did you think of his response?’ And said, I had no thoughts on him, even though he had told the transition team that he thought the ambassador thought Obama was a prick and couldn’t wait to see him leave.
‘Lying to the FBI’, right?
And probable only because the FBI was tapping his phone.

daddy,

I had forgotten about that, but if that isn't the Obama-Hillary MO, I don't know what is!

Evil people. Just evil.

There are so many, so very many Obama underlings that like squash, took on the flavor of the STENCH around them. The Obama admin was a bunch of amateurs cut loose to do as they pleased. People like Lois Lerner, Holder, Ben Rhodes...
The entire admin was full of piss and vinegar, and ironically turned out to be DOUCHEBAGS.

"Minimally corroborated" means they merely checked it against Isikoff's story whose source was....the author of the dossier.

Terrific.

Obama Appointed Judge Mysteriously Recuses Himself From Michael Flynn Case

The case against former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn has taken a strange turn, as U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras abruptly recused himself Thursday night with no explanation. Contreras is an Obama appointee who also sat on the FISA court while the Trump team was under surveillance by the Obama administration...

Of note, Contreras was appointed to the FISA court on May 19, 2016 - before the warrant to surveil one-time Trump advisor Carter Page was issued "in the summer" of 2016. It is unknown whether or not Contreras was involved in the decision, or whether he was involved in surveillance on Michael Flynn.

In fact every single FISA Court judge was appointed during the Obama administration.."

exdem, remember Al Franken suggesting the JEFF SESSIONS had lied about having "meetings" with RUSSIANS, because he had met Kislyak a couple times.

THAT WAS HIS JOB. Sessions did it in public, and even Claire McCaskill jumped in. Then was shown meeting with Kislyak herself.

THEY ARE EVIL and they ARE THE FULL COMMIE.
