Wasn't the IG report concluding that there was no evidence to suggest AN INFLUENCE OF POLITICAL bias on the investigative process?

And now, in the aftermath, that's been reduced to the bias-no bias turd tossing disputes around pundit land.

jimmyk

Fairly certain the bombshell text from Strzok was always part of the IG report. It just wasn’t made public until the IG report was formally released.

That was my impression, that it was in the IG's report.

Kevlar Kid

Why have people, including us here, who've been falling this debacle been discussing the Strozker-Flicka affair since at least February of this year?

Was it leaked?

Extraneus

I don't think they consider a text message to be a document.

Impossible not to. The confusion comes from the weasel words, to the effect that no investigative or prosecutorial decision could be proven to have been solely the result of the obviously documented and testified-to bias.

Both Strzok and Page testified to bias, and left a documentary trail of it. (The printouts of the texts are obviously documents.) The whole point is to give the FBI - including McCabe, Comey and the rest - a fig leaf if any other possible reason could be thought to have resulted in their actions, even if the reason was silly, against policy, inconsistent with past practice, etc.

Kevlar Kid

sorry "following this debacle"

When the Democrats like DiFi whine about how the Hillary investigation was discussed publicly by the FBI, but Trump-Russia wasn't, don't they completely miss the fact that Hillary's crimes were widely known and out there in the public domain? What motivated Comey to discuss it publicly was to attempt to clear her name, not to publicize an investigation that everyone knew was ongoing? At least that's my sense.

Merkel presides over a powder keg as do the bureaucrats in Brussels.

Advocating the importing of non-Teutons would seem to be an ill-advised no-no.

Germany has been a fractious concept since its inception in the 19th century- a melding of states in the northern area of today's modern Germany, but an absorption of vestiges of the old Austro-Hungarian empire following WWI.

It was a catalyst for Hitler's repulsion toward ethnic non-Teutonic minorities in his Greater Germany, especially Jews.

When WWI broke out in 1914, the Kaiser's Germany was only 40 years old and under a single ruling leadership.

That cauldron boils beneath Merkel's pumps and the influence of her financiers.

i foresee a serious whipsaw effect of grassroots German nationalism (Germany for Germans) sacking Merkel with a resulting exit conflagration from the EU that will make the largely symbolic Brexit "vote" regain its teeth against Brussels.

Globalism is a hard sell. Partnerships between nations? Welcome to the Trump era.

SO Wray agrees that the Mueller investigation might just be compromised!

Now, we get the usual lefty hypocrites crying "have a heart" , but when Laura Bush's name is placed on an open-border establishment hacks "the poor children" editorial to pressure Republican whores to enact Amnesty, really....its crazy time!!

Yea--she lives in a border state, Texas----in a plush gated neighborhood in Dallas, about 5-600 miles away from the border, where the only immigrant. "Child" she sees is either her landscaper or various neighborhood housekeeper.
She does not and will never have her grandchildren forgotten in over crowded public schools burdened with large influxes of immigrants getting attention that US taxpayer's children have taken away.
Her million $$$ neighborhood will never run down because 3-4 homes on a block of 12, rented by government subsidy to illegals lying to get food stamps, social security, Medicaid.

I'm pretty sure her little enclave hasn't dealt with rising drug, theft, assault crime rates like the middle class neighborhoods throughout USA that have rising illegal populations to match.
So, the celebs, California leftists, Northeast know-it-alls....just need to zip it!

At the risk of offending some of my new friends on JOM, I'm pasting below a WSJ editorial from today that raises some good issues about how our negotiations with North Korea are discussed and pursued. I'm among those who praise the President for all of the fabulous things that he has done, including the Gorsuch and other judicial appointments, tax reform, the reduction in regulations, the reining in of the CFPB, and opening the door to a possible elimination of North Korea's nuclear weapons, to name but a few of his ground-breaking measures.

But I'm also among those who worry that his spontaneous explanations and assertions sometimes undercut his own policies or negotiating positions, usually through imprecision or over-breadth. The Journal raises some of those kinds of issues regarding the pausing of military exercises in South Korea, and the possible removal of troops from that country. So far, the President hasn't generally acted on such over broad positions, but the interim period is usually troubling for his friends and allies, though the positions might (or might not) be effective in his eventual negotiations.

We are lucky to have him as President, especially when compared to the Clintonian alternative, but we don't want to be like the progressives and behave like constructive criticism isn't healthy and helpful, as long as it doesn't overwhelm the well-deserved praise for all the good that's being done.

Let the comments begin :-)

---------------------------------

A Troops for Nukes Trade?
U.S. forces in South Korea do far more than protect Seoul.

The Editorial BoardJune 17, 2018 3:33 p.m. ET

President Trump sowed confusion in Asia last week when he called U.S.-South Korea joint military exercises “very provocative.” He suspended them until further notice and mused that he’d eventually like to bring all U.S. troops in Korea home. North Korea, Russia and China were pleased—American allies not so much.

“We will be stopping the war games which will save us a tremendous amount of money,” Mr. Trump said in Singapore, but which exercises does he mean? Vice President Mike Pence met with GOP Senators last week and suggested that Mr. Trump meant two annual combined exercises, the Ulchi Freedom Guardian in August and the Foal Eagle in late winter or early spring. But the Pentagon hasn’t confirmed that, and U.S. allies were caught off guard.

Mr. Pence’s spokeswoman later said regular training exercises and exchanges would continue, which is essential. The U.S. and South Koreans are constantly working to sharpen their skills in using weapons and responding to enemy tactics. This includes amphibious landings, parachute drops and responding to North Korean artillery. Stopping those drills would be military malpractice.

Canceling the two giant exercises will also reduce readiness, since they are timed to coincide with North Korea’s exercises and involve allied troops and U.S. forces from other theaters. Mr. Trump made the offer as a unilateral concession, but it’s notable that Kim Jong Un has offered no comparable military gesture. Returning three Americans his government took as hostages and promising to return veterans’ remains aren’t threat-reducing.

If Mr. Trump wants to remove provocations from the peninsula, how about asking Kim to pull North Korean forces back from the Demilitarized Zone and take Seoul out of artillery range? That would justify the exercise cancellation as a goodwill offer.

Beyond the exercises is Mr. Trump’s interest in using U.S. troops in South Korea as a negotiating tool in nuclear talks. U.S. forces working alongside a democratic ally aren’t the same as the illegal development of nuclear weapons by a state sponsor of terrorism.

Mr. Trump seems to think the South Koreans are getting a free ride on the U.S. taxpayer, but that’s false. Nearly all of the 28,500 U.S. troops on the peninsula have begun moving to Camp Humphreys, a giant new U.S. Army base south of Seoul. The base cost some $11 billion to build and South Korea paid more than $10 billion. Seoul also pays for roughly half of the operating costs of U.S. forces in the country.

Then there’s the larger strategic picture in East Asia. U.S. forces don’t merely deter a North Korean invasion of South Korea. They also prevent China, which has considerable economic sway over Seoul, from exerting more political control over Seoul’s foreign policy. The troops are also a forward deployment to protect regional democracies like Japan and Taiwan, and the U.S. alliance with Japan is crucial to containing China’s ambition to dominate the Western Pacific.

The good news is that Congress is waking up to Mr. Trump’s troops-for-nukes predilections. Republican Senator Dan Sullivan of Alaska added a sense of the Senate amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act that says “the significant removal of United States military forces from the Korean Peninsula is a non-negotiable item as it relates to the complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearization” of North Korea.

Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis called his counterparts in South Korea and Japan Thursday to reaffirm America’s “ironclad defense commitments” and “determination to maintain the readiness of its forces in the region.” But with Mr. Trump you never know.

U.S. deployments overseas are part of a global strategy of alliances to deter war, prevent the emergence of a dominant regional power like China, and keep threats as far as possible from the U.S. homeland. The size and nature of U.S. forces in Korea can be rethought if North Korea completely and credibly gives up its nuclear program and ceases to threaten the South. But in the meantime U.S. forces should not be a chit in a trade with Kim Jong Un.

BTW in case anyone out there thinks Horowitz is involved in a whitewash coverup to help protect the FBI/DOJ, why did Horowitz inform Mueller about Strzok back in July 2017 which in turn prompted Mueller to remove Strzok from the SC investigation?

On top of that since Mueller and Strzok were both trying to destroy Trump, why in the world would Mueller remove Strzok from the SC investigation? That doesn't pass the common sense test. You would think a diabolical cabal committing a coup against Trump wouldn't worry about ethical improprieties things like that. The more corrupt members of the Deep State on Mueller's team the better.

Tom R, for the same reason Comey reopened the email investigation: His hand was forced. When something as blatant as Srzok's and Page's texts come out, he has to respond. When the NYPD's info on Weiner's laptop was going to get leaked, Comey had to do something. In both cases it was the minimum necessary to keep up the charade of objectivity while continuing to do what they're doing, which is to pursue Trump and sweep all wrongdoing by Democrats under the rug.

Ask yourself this: Why were Strzok and Page on the Russia investigation in the first place?

Kevlar Kid

ENRDV:

Thanks. Good read. Methinks had POTUS put the repositioning of NOKO artillery and foot soldiers away from the 38th parallel front and center in the talks and putting such a major concern of our allies in the public eye, Kim's #2 might have had him sacked.

As it is, Kim's half-life is about one year following the signing of any Treaty.

The nuclearization effort may have been threatening the interest of the NOKO power structure in having to pay for maintenance of such a capital intensive program.

So, letting go of that burden may have been a relief to the shoulders which hold up the squatty Kim.

We'll see, right?

"That doesn't pass the common sense test."

My two cents.

As an appearance of impropriety, which required at least for Mueller to deliberate whether to keep Strozk on his team, it makes perfect STRATEGIC sense to decide to leave Strozk in a ditch.

Mueller's bona fides peddled to the public all along and to Congress cohere around his reputation as an upstanding former FBI Director.

So, had Strozk been permitted to stay on his team while Mueller is investigating the "pussy grabbing", water sport champion POTUS, what would happen to those supposed bona fides by employing a lead agent who's banging the help from Justice?

Maybe Mueller didn't want that smell anywhere near the partisan virtuousness of his investigation of the New Hitler.

Tom R

This article clarifies the confusion over the bombshell Strzok text. It was not included in the original batch of recovered Strzok/Page texts turned over to Horowitz that we have known about for months. Horowitz did not get the text until May 2018. The text was then included as one of the findings in the IG report released last week.

https://www.nationalreview.com/news/doj-ig-claims-fbi-software-failed-to-recover-explosive-strzok-text/

For anyone doubting Horowitz's integrity, I find this part to be encouraging:

Although we received Page’s August 8 text message to Strzok from the FBI as part of its production of text messages in 2017, Strzok’s response to Page was not among those preserved by the FBI’s text message preservation software, and therefore was not produced to us,” reads a footnote to the IG’s report released Thursday. “The OIG’s Cyber Investigations Office recovered this text message, along with others, in May 2018 through forensic analysis of a folder found on Page’s and Strzok’s Samsung S5 devices.”

In other words, the FBI did not give the bombshell text to Horowitz. His own IG team are the ones who recovered it. Horowitz could have easily buried this information or not even put any effort into recovering it. The fact it is now public knowledge is IMO a positive sign.

BTW one thing not mentioned is why the FBI text message preservation software failed to preserve this particular text. I hope that is now part of the criminal investigation.

Someone on the R side needs to ask about why the FBI sat on the information about the Weiner laptop for a month, as opposed to letting the Democrats whine about the leak.

Tom R, for the same reason Comey reopened the email investigation: His hand was forced. When something as blatant as Srzok's and Page's texts come out, he has to respond.

I 100% agree with you that Mueller's hand was forced. Now answer this question. If both Mueller and Horowitz are part of the Deep State cabal trying to destroy Trump, why in the world would Horowitz force Mueller's hand by informing Mueller of Strzok's criminal corruption and publicly releasing some of the Strzok/Page text message? That makes zero sense. Common sense logic seems to clearly indicate (to everyone but Eye Doctor) that Horowitz' actions exposing the corruption are not what you would expect from someone who is part of the Deep State cable trying to destroy Trump.

Ask yourself this: Why were Strzok and Page on the Russia investigation in the first place?

Sundance answered that question a few months back. Strzok and Page were already members of Comey's FBI counterintel team investigating Russian collusion in the 2016 election before Comey got fired. When Mueller was named SC he just took over control of that ongoing investigation and retained them on the team.

Tom R, I wouldn't lump Horowitz and Mueller together as you are doing. Most of the complaints here have been about Mueller being dirty. Horowitz may be clean but more timid or less aggressive than he should be. But let's not use that to shield Mueller. Everything Mueller has done publicly is consistent with an anti-Trump agenda.

The one thing really going for propane spills, if you can keep it from igniting, is it cleans itself up.

The craziest thing I ever saw was a guy I kind of worked with who wrecked a bobtail gas truck hauling what they call a pup trailer. All filled with oil products though, I think.

He was barreling down the road towards an intersection way too fast and the light changed on him. Some people started through so he locked his brakes up and more or less jackknifed and the trailer broke away. The tongue went into the pavement and snapped off like Excalibur. It was more or less 6x6 steel. The bobtail and pup trailer ended up at the bottom of the hill right next to the Platte River.

Pinandpuller,

The site of that derailment in Indiana is a small town near where my ex-husband first worked at an underground mine. I am very familiar with it. The rail line runs pretty much through the center of town. Pretty scary if you are a resident there!

I am concerned because CSX runs long, loaded trains through my area as well. Originally I didn't give it much thought, but the rail lines are old, the trains are very long, and we have a lot of people who attempt to beat the trains at crossings. Makes me a tad nervous.
