Finally, the Horowitz Report

DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s long-awaited report about FISA abuses perpetrated by the Obama Deep State is due tomorrow.

It remains to be seen whether this report will be a (relative) whitewash or whether it will be the harbinger of swamp draining to come.

Keep in mind that the report is limited in scope and written by an official whose reach is similarly limited. Horowitz can examine/investigate only what is in his purview. He does not have subpoena power, vastly limiting what he’s able to discover. He has no prosecutorial power, as the President himself pointed out.

This analysis provides some insight: [emphasis added to quotes]

Inspector Generals are like the human resource arm of a corporation. … Inspector Generals exist to help their agency deal with problems and messes. Sure, they may be forced to admit wrongdoing on the part of the agency and its employees, but they will always downplay it. If there’s a conceivable way to say that the department didn’t violate the policy or law, they will do that. And they will characterize the bad behavior that they must concede as limited to rogue employees and not representative of the larger agency. …

People expecting a thorough look at the widespread surveillance on the Trump campaign likely will be disappointed for several reasons.

First off, the IG said he was looking only into the surveillance of “a certain U.S. person,” presumably Carter Page. But Page is just one of the campaign affiliates who was surveilled. Horowitz said that “if circumstances warrant,” he’ll “consider including other issues that may arise,” but it’s unclear how many were looped into his sluggish probe.

Horowitz is also constrained by the fact that he is only allowed to speak with people who work at the Department of Justice at the time of his questioning. If they’ve retired or been fired, he can’t force them to cooperate with his probe. If they work at a different agency or department, he can’t compel cooperation.

The best thing the Inspector General report will have is factual information. … Regardless of whether Horowitz joins Trump’s critics in defending all the actions of the agency he serves, the facts will enable people to make their own decisions.

On Wednesday, Horowitz will appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee to explain (defend?) his report. The devil will be in the details.

The report is said to be hundreds of pages long. Most people will probably read only the executive summary, if that.

Far too many will rely only upon the corrupt, anti-Trump mainstream media’s spin, which will probably have been coordinated with, if not written by, President Trump’s (other) political enemies.

If Horowitz places priority on salvaging the DOJ’s reputation, then the most damning facts will likely be buried deep among the many pages of the report and will be skimmed over, if mentioned at all, in the executive summary.

As for the President, he’s more eagerly awaiting the results of U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation:

“I do think the big report to wait for is the Durham report,” Trump said. “That’s the one that people are really waiting for. And he’s highly respected, and he’s worked very hard and he’s worked long hours, I can tell you, and gone all over the world. So we’ll see.”

We the People have been waiting for justice for far too long. Let us hope and pray that these two men, Horowitz and Durham, do not let us down.

We’ve been waiting a long time for the swamp that is Washington DC to be well and truly drained. Is this finally the beginning?

Let all the poisons that lurk in the mud hatch out.

Pray for our President and our Republic.

  1. Tensions flare as GOP Rep. Gaetz brings Hunter Biden’s Drug past into impeachment debate ..CRACK IT WIDE OPEN & does JOE BLOW also?

    The Florida lawmaker referenced an article in The New Yorker, which included interviews with Hunter Biden & reported on a 2016 car accident the younger Biden was involved in. According to that story, employees at a rental car agency claimed they found a CRACK pipe inside the vehicle. It also quoted Hunter Biden describing his attempts to buy CRACK Cocaine in a Los Angeles homeless encampment.

    If Muslim Dhimmi Brennan knew, then Comey knew, Biden Knew, & most certiainly Obama knew & we know that hundreds of others knew, the liberal media knew, many Dems knew that this was all predicated on an illegal scam, regardless of what Democratic Traitor and Obama appointee & Trump Hater Horowitz says. As Nancy Pelosi Declared war last week, quoting the First line of the Declaration of Independence, “When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another…” So, YES. Pelosi may it be so!!! Yes, this IS THE TIME to follow Pelosi’s lead. It is time to dissolve our American Political bands which have connected us to one another fight & execute the illegal Democrat resistance and unconstitutional coup traitors. No treasonous socialist, Communists, or Muslims who Hate our Constitutional values and the presumption of innocence should ever be allowed to serve in any local, state or national office. Love the Muslims, ban Obama & Brennan’s Islam. It is not a religion, but a subversive & seditious theocracy…easily provable. I will debate ANYONE! Anyone who disagrees is either a Dhimmi or completely ignorant of Islam.

  4. O.. BABY .. ? ..BUTT’ no ABORTIONS??? the right name “HUNT-HER!

    One thing to remember as this unfolds: Obama and Biden have simply been joined at the hip the last six & a half years. Biden attends every meeting Obama is in. He is among Obama’s closest advisors, perhaps – after Valerie Jarrett – his closest.
    The two men must get along very well to spend so much time together. I think Obama would feel remiss if he didn’t support Biden.

    Michelle Obama is right!
    We are not where we need to be on Race because of Democrats &
    people like her.
    The biggest racists out there!
    The ones who use the race card are the biggest racists!
    Another Alinsky tactic.
    Now go put on your size 15 heels Michelle and show us how you pretend!

    Michelle Obama is still obsessed with race.

    How ironic, Barry, E Holder, and Moochele brought racism back…..
    Barack Obama, by himself, set US race relations back 30 years.

    Don’t forget about ScumBag Racist Biden & HIS comments to a group
    of blacks during the 2012 campaign how the Republicans were
    “going to Put them back in Chains”.
    What a despicable person lying to and exploiting naive people when it’s
    his party that has done all of those things going back to forming the KKK.

    ….. Hey Moocher
    You are singly the most ungrateful, spiteful soul less person to ever
    ……set foot in the >>>> White House.
    Why don’t you just do everyone a favor and stay in Malaysia.
    Convert to islam and be happy

    The Obamas had a historic chance to lead & they failed.
    They failed miserably. Look at the results!

    They could have led young blacks to join civilization: marriage, school, church, sobriety, respect, duty, gentleness, legal work.
    Instead, they stood by while black leaders taught kids to blame, to covet,
    to riot, to hate.

    Too many black voices seed black youth with rage. They fueled feral pandemonium.
    They stood by while black culture Descended into mayhem, despair,& death.

    If Michelle wants to Save lives. . .She should TWEET ….. this:

    …..!!!! “Hey Kids! JOIN CIVILIZATION! RAISE YOUR SONS!” !!!!

    America took a step back on race during your husband’s administration, Mooch. Stop the RACE bating. ….IS SHE 4 REAL????

    Racism is the most passé issue out there. Check the results of last night’s UK vote.

    Impeachment is Trump’s equivalent of Obama was born as a Muslim
    and is not American. A total and complete fabrication.

    Although probably 60% of Breitbart viewers YEPYEPYEP…. still believe that Obama
    was not born in America. ??? ….. ??? What does that tell us? NO PROOF?

    BHO.Sr was a Muslim of the Luo tribe. By their Law Barry was Born a Muslim. ….. No getting around that.
    Stanley Ann appears to have been an atheist /agnostic /Marxist.
    Barry was adopted by Lolo Soetoro, by the Indonesian laws that allowed that, Barry had to profess to be a Muslim & reject any other citizenship.
    Their law, no getting around that.

    There has been NO evidence ever presented by anyone to my knowledge that Barry’s mother or Grandparents??? ever filed any of the necessary Paperwork to reinstate his citizenship.
    Under strict law, BHO Jr may not have any lawful claim to current US Citizenship & that is the logical explanation why HE files his taxes with a False SS#.

  9. BARR gets the word OUT about the Deep State … By Monica Showalter
    Investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson has an excellent rundown at the Epoch Times of all the statements Attorney General William Barr has been making from various media appearances, noticing the patterns in what he’s putting out there.

    She calls him suddenly “Chatty,” which of course the guy is Not, making the point that he’s releasing a lot of information with a hard purpose. What did she find? That there are quite a few unpleasant coming attractions for the Deep State as the Russiagate scandal unfolds and more reports are set to come out.

    Here’s a sample:
    1. Don’t expect Durham’s findings to be announced before late spring or summer 2020.
    2. The FBI did spy on the Trump campaign. That’s what electronic surveillance is.
    3. Regarding the FBI’s actions in surveilling Trump campaign associates, it was a “travesty” and there were “many abuses.”
    4. From “day one,” the FBI investigation generated exculpatory information (tending to point to the targets’ innocence) and nothing that corroborated Russia collusion.
    5. It’s a “big deal” to use U.S. law enforcement and intelligence resources to investigate the opposing political party, and I cannot think of another recent instance in which this happened.

    She has 24 such Tightly written Summarizing Points, and it’s an excellent read, indeed. YEP IT IS!!!

    Conclusion? It’s NOT going to end well for the Deep State, which is the rightful response to see, given the federal Abuses of power within. It’s part
    of a pattern of Deep State corruption and didn’t start with Trump. One reason Attkisson is so savvy to the skullduggery is that the Obama administration illegally Spied on Sharyl HerSelf, for which she is Suing the Government to open the files on the matter. She has a GoFundMe page for those legal costs, & it’s a worthy cause for helping to drive a stake into the heart of Deep State.

    Comey said that “in general” he was unaware of “the particulars of the investigation” when it was going on, but said that as the person at the head of the FBI at the time, it still falls on him.

    “I was responsible for this.” >>>> ???

    • AFTER the FACT ? ….. what a cOn U R 2 WTP … SUCKER punch?

      Comey: ‘I Was Wrong’ ‘Over Confident’ About FBI Procedures …F’U!

      • What a liar. He really does think we’re stupid. We’re supposed to forget that he signed off on every one of these applications, that he testified otherwise than the evidence in the Horowitz report shows (aka, perjury), and that since Strzok and Page admitted in text messages that the former, alleged POTUS wanted to be kept informed every step of the way of the investigation, then who would that be who was informing Barry? Surely it was the top dog and not low-level people like Page who were picking up the phone to apprise Barry.

        About Page. I was thinking last night about how she EDITED the FBI 302. It’s admitted, under oath. A FACT. I’m not a lawyer but I have what I think is an educated question: Isn’t this akin to a prosecutor editing police reports? I mean, think about it. Page worked in the DOJ, not for the FBI. These 302s are the FBI equivalent of police reports. Can you imagine the outcry if even a police sergeant or a police chief who was NOT present at the event took it upon himself or herself to EDIT police reports before they were submitted to judges or other investigators? Seriously? Editing EVIDENCE and being done by someone completely in another dept. of the government? And yet, we have the farce of that judge the other day saying “no harm, no foul,” as far as Flynn goes. And what’s up with the judge alleging/accusing Sydney Powell of plagiarism (of her own words)?

  18. An impeachment peel-off: ‘Rats flee Pelosi’s sinking ship
    By Monica Showalter
    Is the impeachment ship sinking?
    Well, it’s always a pretty good sign of it when the ‘Rats R fleeing the ship.

    Now it’s happening again & the public is reacting exactly the same way she knew they were going to react.
    Yet her party is so crazy even she was unable to muscle them.
    She’s so afraid of all sides she now says she won’t enforce a ‘Whip’ vote
    on impeachment, either. And we know she’s terrified of the far-left ‘Squad.’

    So now she’s watching the Gotterdammerung. Impeachment is Not only Not going to win in the Senate, it’s probably going to Cost Democrats their House majority & her own Speakership. Worse still, the rats are fleeing the sinking ship, & who knows how Many will Follow. It’s her Worst Nightmare coming to life. Couldn’t happen to a better bunch of Malcontents Blinded Crazy by their unwavering hatred for Trump.

    That’s the case with Rep. Jeff Van Drew, who’s getting ready to scrap the ‘Rat designation & become a Republican to boot.

  19. Democrat Rep. Collin Peterson Confirms He’s Voting AgainsT Trump ImpeachmenT

    Rep. COLLIN PeTerson said he believes that the president has “Not committed a crime,” while most of his Seventh District constituents
    oppose the U.S. providing aid to other counties.

    He also noted the so-called “whistleblower” complaint — authored by a partisan CIA analyst — regarding President Trump’s July 25 telephone
    with the leader of Ukraine includes “second-hand” information.

    Peterson’s comments came amid reports Rep. Jeff Van Drew (NJ), another moderate Democrat who opposes impeachment, is telling staff members that he plans to defect to the Republican Party.

    Donald Trump thanked “gutsy” Rep. JEFF Van Drew for his support after
    the Democrat is believed to be set to switch political parties just before the House votes on impeaching the president.

    The Washington Post reported that New Jersey Democrat Rep Van Drew had a Friday meeting with Trump during which the president urged him to join the GOP.

    Trump retweeted a post on Sunday which said Van Drew is “believed to be strongly considering” the switch, tweeting: “Wow, that would be big. Always heard Jeff is very smart!” <<, SMART in DEED!!! WELCOME JEFF!!!

    He also tweeted: “Thank you for your honesty Jeff.
    “All of the Democrats know you are right, but unlike you, they don’t have the ‘guts’ to say so!”

    • He sure saw the writing on the wall. I guess we’ll take him, though he’s likely to be a RINO. Just what we don’t need. It’s not as if he’s becoming a Republican because he believes in his heart in the Republican ideology or the conservative one or even Trump’s ideology. He’s changing only because he wants to save his own political skin.

  20. YEP! …WTP …Remember U > 2 jokers ? ….”ALL THAT 4 A FLAG” ?
    TRY-IN 2 PUT WTP USA DOWN > 2 your LEVEL? NO WAY michael
    Cling 2 GUNS & RELIGION ? ..”THEY” ..? GET BITTER??? O’ ha’

    Michelle Obama sends Greta Thunberg message of support
    … > after Trump tweet … Former first lady told climate activist
    >>> ‘don’t let Any-One DIM your Light’ ?> REALLY MOOCHIE???
    after Trump said teen had an ‘Anger management problem’ .. does SHE?

    • Can you believe that they give so much MORE coverage to that FORMER First “Lady” than to the current First Lady? It’s insulting and it’s RACIST and it’s, dare I say it, anti-immigrant. Do they hate Melania because she’s an immigrant? I mean, what else can you attribute it to?

      Why is she publicly shaming Malia, who, imho, is or has always been a little scrawny. There’s nothing wrong with their bodies. On the other hand, this sounds so much like all the other made up anecdotes that serve the narrative and so don’t have to be literally true. Barry’s books (and probably hers, too) are full of such characters and incidents that NEVER HAPPENED. The DemoncRATS, in general, do this. Hillary and her lie about being named after Sir Edmund. Joe Biden and his adventures in being a lifeguard in the ghetto. Barry and his lie about remembering the astronauts splashing down in the ocean as he sat on his grandfather’s shoulders. Need we even mention Liz the Cherokee?

      It is totally NORMAL for children at certain points to get chubby. That’s what baby fat is and it’s there for a reason–to see them through the upcoming growth spurts. Barry’s a good one to talk, considering the fat kid we’re SUPPOSED TO BELIEVE was him in Indonesia.

  21. Here’s a little light relief:
    We had an election over here last week and The Labor Party (roughly Democrat Party) lost big time – landslide for the Conservatives not seen since the days of Margaret Thatcher.
    Lots of recriminations within the Labor Party but the one phrase they didn’t think of?
    The Russians did it!
    The Russians stole the election for Boris!
    It’s been suggested that the Democrat Party could learn something from this landslide defeat for their hard left theories, but I doubt it, me.

    • Are you kidding me? They’re saying that? Unbelievable. I saw coverage of the antifa-like “protests,” but of course not on the mainstream media. At places like Gateway Pundit. I did hear people screaming the same thing as over here, such as “he’s not my prime minister” and “resist,” using the same talking points of the left over here. It’s unbelievable how astroturfed this all is. It’s a global conspiracy to overthrow governments installed in democratic elections by the PEOPLE, who are exactly the ones the left claim to support.
