What other takes are there aside from Page has been notified she is being accused of wrongdoing by Horowitz so she is playing the victim now to get out ahead of the story?

jimmyk

I believe CH thought she had turned, and ratted everyone out, which doesn't seem to be the case. In any case, there's "wrongdoing" and "crime." She is specifically focusing on the criminal aspect. Do we think Horowitz will make a criminal referral? I have no idea except that he completely wimped out in his previous report.

It is my understanding that anyone who is named in an IG report gets access to their portion of the report in order to rebutt it prior to the release of the report.

I guess an alternative take is that it is a limp-dick report that doesn't hold Page culpable of anything significant. Probably a few process issues but nothing to do with a coup. And now she knows it so she can be confident in front of the cameras.

McClintock was on The Armstrong and Getty Show this morning. They touted his reputation as a Constitutional expert and a fiscal genius prior to him coming on the air. Apparently they have been interviewing for 20+ years.

McClintock pointed out that everyone wants to interview him now that he is on the judiciary committee bit no one wanted to talk to him when he was on the budget committee exposing waste and abuse. He noted that his own party preferred that he kept his mouth shut back then.

I've been trying to fix the clothes dryer light not going on, unsuccessfully. It still works fine as far as drying clothes effectively so it's just a minor thing but I thought I might actually be able to fix something.

I don't know what to think of Page. I probably cut her too much slack because she's semi attractive trim but she didn't rise high enough in the ranks to alter Flynn's transcripts by being a naive would be do gooder.

In the 3 decades before my election, NATO spending declined by two-thirds, and only 3 other NATO members were meeting their financial obligations. Since I took office, the number of NATO allies fulfilling their obligations more than DOUBLED, and NATO spending increased by $130B!

Alex

Threadkiller, Lisa Page no longer in FBI so she was not consulted on final draft of IG FISA report. She may have been conflating the earlier IG report with the new one so she can claim victimhood. That they are holding up Flynn case does not bode well for her.

Hunter Biden, the gift that keeps on giving. Daddy is really getting weird out on the campaign trail. He's almost at Ron Burgundy level now.

Not sure how Horowitz gets the Steele dossier fiasco into his report, but that alone deserves its own special prosecutor. Never before in the field of human conflict have so few deceived so many.

China released its latest stats and supposedly their economy is stabilizing. I don't see how that can be when the tariffs have kicked in and their own economy is largely in the doldrums.

Still no word on a deal, and Xi knows that any deal will result in a gain in face for Trump.

The mullahs are losing the support of the working class in Iran and things are not working out like they thought they would in Iraq and Lebanon. In addition, they don't have much extra cash to fund their proxies or buy votes.

No consequence for blowing off a court hearing for Hunter Biden.
Two systems of justice.
How convenient that they are dragging this out so no access to his illegal dealings in Ukraine or money he has stashed in the Caymans.Ergo no blowback on Joe Biden

That's like the end of the "Turkeys are Flying" episode of WKRP:

A man and his two children tried to kill me. After the turkeys hit the pavement, the crowd kind of scattered, but some of them tried to attack me! I had to jam myself into a phone booth! Then Mr. Carlson had the helicopter land in the middle of the parking lot. I guess he thought he could save the day by turning the rest of the turkeys loose...it gets pretty strange after that.

Is anyone else who watches YouTube videos getting inundated with Bloomberg for President ads? Over the past several days every single YouTube video I have watched regardless of the type of video has started off with a Bloomberg ad.

The one I see the most has Bloomberg taking credit for leading the NYC's post 9/11 recovery efforts. Is he relying on ignorant leftwingers who don't know that Rudy Guiliani was the mayor when 9/11 happened?

henry

Tom R, if you keep watching Bloomie ads you'll become an Auburn fan. (no offense to Auburn fans who would be turned into Bama fans by the same process, Bloomie causes brains to attack all that made them great).

John Ratcliffe
"Page gave us new information that Strzok either wouldn't or couldn't, confirming some of the concerns we had about these investigations and the people involved in running them."
Because she was not a decision-maker like Strzok, Comey and McCabe, she is not in line for being charged with anything major, so her claim that she can't be guilty of anything doesn't mean she has not cooperated with the investigation

Melinda

Doesn't one saying "Can't be guilty of anything" come across as a bit clouded because you Can be guilty of Something?

That isn't what I was talking about. Witnesses and their lawyers were invited to review the report according to an article I read a couple of weeks ago. It was the occurrence of these reviews that signaled that the report was soon done.

This gives a witness, like Page, a chance to correct errors.

https://www.routefifty.com/public-safety/2019/11/new-york-city-handgun-law-second-amendment-supreme-court/161592/

Without something akin to a strict scrutiny standard effectively there may be an individual right, but it's hard to protect it from hostile localities. Reminds me too of just how much money doomberg has channeled into this issue. He has also made his views of the 2nd amendment, and not scotus, a cornerstone of contunuing legal ed in the states. Young lawyers are being taught in law school and then as young lawyers that heller and its sequel = bad law in need of overturning by a more enlightened court.

The DOJ IG process as I understand it means Page was officially found to have done something wrong. Whatever this is could be something minor like failing to follow a standard operating procedure or major like a criminal act. If she was not formally accused of some kind of wrongdoing she would not have been notified of anything.

In the twitterverse, no one has the patience to read a full report and a heavy reliance is placed on the executive summary. That is why the dems were so upset with Barr's 4 page summary prior to the 19 page executive summary to the Mueller report. Barr had blunted any effect of the excutive summary. Similarly the executive summary of Horowitz report blunted the real bias that were in the Page Strzok e-mails which actually in the report.

Page and Strzock may be free but public opinion of them and FBI is low.This goes hand in hand with Wretchard's latest https://pjmedia.com/richardfernandez/the-last-hurrah-of-the-oracle/ about controlling the narrative which Page and her ilk with their media accomplices are still trying to do with hopefully little success.

Jim,

Should we conclude that AG Barr supports the Horowitz Report as it is since he has not put out a similar summary? Horowitz did refer something(s) to Barr/Durham for investigation and possible prosecution. It depends on what was referred and how the matter intersects with other matters and players in the report, but it may be that this is the way that Barr wants to proceed.

Barbara

s/b "Getting the Mueller Report Summary"

clarice

Barr put out his summary of the Mueller report because weissman et al were stalling on the redactions so they could spin the report before it came out. Barr trumped them, just as DJT trumped Schiff by releasing the transcript of the phone call

Rocco

I'll jump in TomR's pool with 1. I think they all skate except for 1 patsy.

I think it's going to be a whitewash. I want the FBI abolished but my gut tells me Barr wants to save the integrity of the whole IC community. I hope I'm wrong!
