There was another article put out just prior to the one I linked to that is very interesting also.
This explains why the never-Trumpers are so adamant about not allowing the acting AG any say in the matter. The excuse is the Mueller investigation, but in reality, Whitacker is a threat to the entire Deep State.
In hindsight; and specifically against the backdrop of known illegal activity [remember, McCabe is under criminal referral] there was a motive of self-interest within Baker and McCabe, specifically to cover for the 2015/2016/2017 DOJ and FBI activity that preceded the firing of FBI Director James Comey.
From the initial perspective of self-interest, Mueller’s role had/has three essential aspects:
♦(1) Create an investigation – Just by creating the investigation it is then used as a shield by any corrupt FBI/DOJ official who would find himself/herself under downstream congressional investigation. Former officials being deposed/questioned by IG Horowitz or Congress could then say they are unable to answer those questions due to the ongoing special counsel investigation. In this way Mueller provides cover for officials.
♦(2) Use the investigation to keep any and all inquiry focused away from the corrupt DOJ and FBI activity that took place in 2016, 2016, 2017. Keep the media narrative looking somewhere, anywhere, other than directly at the epicenter of the issues. In this way, Mueller provides distraction and talking points against the Trump administration.
♦(3) Use the investigation to suck-up, absorb, any damaging investigative material that might surface as a result of tangentially related inquiry. Example: control the exposure of evidence against classified leak participants like SSCI Director of Security, James Wolfe. In this way Mueller provides cover for the institutions and the administrative state.
In all of these objectives the Mueller special counsel has been stunningly effective.
Remember James Wolfe? The guy who was passing classified info to that young reporter Ali Watkins from the New York Times? The one who was sleeping with him? (Shades of "House of Cards"?)
James Wolfe became a benefactor of current DOJ officials who are protecting the institutions within the administrative state and hiding the fingerprints of the officials, and congressional allies (Vice Chairman Mark Warner), who engaged in activity in 2016 and 2017.
These corrupt DOJ and FBI officials are not protecting Wolfe as much as they are protecting themselves and their institution(s). This effort transparently includes Rosenstein, FBI Director Christopher Wray, Deputy FBI Director David Bowditch and current FBI general counsel Dana Boente; as well as all the second level and third level carry-over career officials.
It seems that Wolfe had the DOJ and the FBI over a barrel, as he was threatening to call witnesses - probably about who ok'd leaking the classified material. So, they let him off with a slap on the wrist.
There is a clear pattern. In addition to the disparity of outcome within the Wolfe indictment/plea deal we exhibit: redactions in material evidence provided to congress; refusal to release material to congress; fighting declassification of documents that would be damaging to the previous officials; refusal to discuss events with congress by officials who hide behind the shield of the Mueller investigation; the list is long.
Where are we now?
With Robert Mueller in charge of an ongoing investigation, the two previous IG reports (1. Investigation of McCabe and 2. Clinton email/FBI bias) could not outline anything tangentially connected to the Mueller investigation without first passing through his teams approval and review.
That level of Mueller influence kept the most severe elements of investigative sunlight away from public review.
These officials defending the administrative state are still in place. We know they are in place because their influential conduct is visible. Three of them are inarguable:
(1) By redacting innocuous, albeit highly damaging information, within the Lisa Page and Peter Strzok text messages and emails. Officials within the agencies are hiding information and even eliminating the most damaging material.
(2) By controlling what records IG Horowitz has access to; in addition to who he is interviewing. The IG is only as effective as the material he has to review.
(3) By shaping the executive summaries of the two previous IG reports to ensure the specific material within the report is diluted as much as possible in the summary and conclusions.
There is a lot more in this article. I urge whoever is not affected by a severe case of TDS to read it.
This is what Sy Hersh was talking about! The most unreported story ever - in his words. This is every bit as interesting as the fiction "House of Cards." You don't need HBO right now.
And, it's unfolding right now right in front of us.
But . . . you have to get away from the MSM to get this story. And, you have to use something like DuckDuckGo for searches and avoid Google like the plague.
thanks cf for the details but this is just plain too hard for some to go thru when it is just so damn easy to blame trump....just like the brits complaining so loudly those on the left here in this country cannot imagine how deep this runs
All the smoke screens, flashing shiny objects & jibber jabber isn't going to save tRump from the consequences of his Russian collusion, obstruction of justice & whatever else Mueller has on him.
The question you need to ask yourself is if tRump is so innocent, then why is he refusing to have a sit-down one on one interview with Mueller? If he is so innocent & has nothing to hide why does he act so guilty? Refusing to answer questions eyeball to eyeball with Mueller is not how an innocent man would behave.
There is only one logical conclusion to these questions, isn't there.
They control everything and trump has all the dirt on them but is willie g to sweep it all under the rug if they don't go after him. Just let him launder all that Russian mob money and he will leave the Clinton - Obama deep state in power, but if the dems come after trump he will declassify all their dirty secrets.
Just listen to the TT's
