The Department Of Injustice’s Inspector General Is Complicit In The Deep-State Cover-Up!

15 06 2018

 By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

In his long-anticipated, more than 500-page report[2], the Department of Justice’s Inspector General David Horowitz[3] ignored the “800-pound gorilla” in the room; namely, the greatest scandal in American history.  He seems totally oblivious to—and has criminally whitewashed—the “deep-state cover-up,” or the combined efforts of Barack Obama and others to destroy the candidacy and the presidency of Donald Trump.[4]

In addition to Obama, the treasonous wrongdoers include but are not limited to  former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton; former Attorneys General Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch; Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and former Deputy AG Sally Yates; former FBI Directors Robert Mueller and James Comey; former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper; former CIA Director John Brennan; former National Security Advisor Susan Rice; former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe; and Senior Advisor to Obama, Valerie Jarrett.[5]

By taking a dive and burying the truth and treason, Horowitz has added more shame to American government and to the corrupt DOJ and FBI.  He too should resign immediately in disgrace.  For openers, not once does his report mention Rice or Jarrett.  The traitor Mueller is mentioned on 4 pages, while his co-conspirators—Rosenstein, Clapper and Brennan—are mentioned on a scant one page each, with Rosenstein being cited only in an innocuous footnote.[6]  

Horowitz has committed one or more crimes—including treason—by covering up the greatest scandal in American history.  He has zero integrity or credibility.  He is part of the corrupt DOJ/FBI “culture” that has existed for decades, which is not discernibly different than the former Soviet Union’s brutal KGB.[7]  Like Hans Christian Andersen’s fable, “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” Horowitz’s own criminality has been exposed for all Americans and the world to see.[8]

To be sure, such a wholesale attack against our Constitution, presidency, democracy and republic is every bit as evil as a physical attack against our great nation by an enemy.  Clearly, the DOJ Inspector General’s office is “where the truth goes to die.”  And the response must be equally severe—to send a message far and wide that such conduct and complicity will not be tolerated ever again.

Also, it must be noted that the present FBI Director Christopher Wray was Assistant Attorney General from 2003 to 2005, where he worked under James Comey.

See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christopher_A._Wray (“Christopher A. Wray”)

[6]  With respect to such wrongdoers, the report simply states:

In an October 5, 2016 email, Comey explained his position on the statement to Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.  [page 348]

Rosenstein is mentioned in footnote 224 on page 431.  The report mentions Obama on 17 pages; Hillary Clinton on 72 pages; Bill Clinton on 32 pages; Holder on 7 pages; Lynch on 123 pages; Yates on 76 pages; Comey on 282 pages; and McCabe on 131 pages.

[7]  Under Joseph Stalin and other ruthless Soviet leaders, the KGB was brutal and responsible for the deaths of millions, directly or indirectly.  However, by “killing” one innocent American, it is arguable that the DOJ and FBI have been and are just as brutal and reprehensible.

Thank you for your comment.

I believe Sessions is THE problem nationally, and he should be removed from office.

He, Holder and Lynch are the worst AGs in our history.

Needless to say, no mention is made in the report of the many crimes (including treason) committed by Robert Mueller and others—nor has the cowardly and incompetent Sessions addressed them.

Why The OIG Report Should Scare The Hell Out Of You

Lincoln and Trump

David Catron has written in The American Spectator:

The Justice Department’s tepid OIG report, with its risible assertion that there was no political bias in the FBI’s Clinton email probe, suggests that it was written by people afraid to tell the unvarnished truth about the conduct of the federal government’s police apparatus, an agency that openly defies congressional oversight and has participated in a vendetta against a sitting president. The FBI’s leadership clearly hopes that the Democrats will win majorities in Congress and put a halt to the investigations into its multifarious abuses of power. The OIG is loath to face the ruthless reprisals that would inevitably follow such a disaster.

In other words, the Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General is filled with people who fear the FBI. Think about that for a minute. What is the usual term for a government whose members live in fear of its police arm? Ronald Reagan famously said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.” The OIG report suggests that its demise may be only one election away. The following passage from the report’s Executive Summary is a cowardly exercise in bureaucratic dissembling deliberately worded to let corrupt FBI officials off the hook and provide talking points for its equally dishonest apologists:

[We] did not find documentary or testimonial evidence that improper considerations, including political bias, directly affected the specific investigative decisions we reviewed … we found that these specific decisions were the result of discretionary judgments made during the course of an investigation by the Midyear agents and prosecutors and that these judgment calls were not unreasonable.

It doesn’t matter that this pusillanimous drivel is refuted by the findings reported in the depths of the full 568-page report. It was immediately deployed by the usual suspects in the legacy “news” media, and even the agency’s current director, to whitewash the behavior of Comey, McCabe, Strzok, and the rest of the rogue bureaucrats posing as law enforcement officials. If the ill effects of this report are not obvious, consider the response of the FBI’s current director, the guy who was supposed to be a trade up from the solipsistic stuffed shirt fired by President Trump. Here is Christopher Wray’s rote recitation of the FBI party line:

I take this report very seriously, and we accept its findings and recommendations. It’s also important to note what the inspector general did not find. The report did not find any evidence of political bias or improper consideration actually impacting the investigation under review. But the report does identify errors of judgment, violations of or disregard for policy, and decisions that, at the very least, in hindsight, were not the best choices.

And, in the cause of halting further investigations into deep state skulduggery, the Democrats immediately used the OIG report to attack the Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes. Nunes has spearheaded the House investigation into the interference of executive branch agencies in the 2016 election and their attempts to hobble the Trump administration. California Democrat Adam Schiff has been working the talking head circuit to weave ironic conspiracy theories about Nunes’ conduct. Schiff went on Meet the Press yesterday to speculate about data received by the committee from the FBI:

[I]t is deeply disturbing because if this was shared by New York field agents with Devin Nunes, was it also shared with Rudy Giuliani? Or did Devin Nunes do something which we have seen subsequently which is coordinate with the Trump team? Was this information shared by the committee with Rudy Giuliani or shared directly with them? We don’t know the answer but we hope the inspector general will find out.

Schiff is, of course, a pathological liar. This has been documented by a number of news outlets, including the Federalist, in this story by Mollie Hemingway. But the truth isn’t what matters to any of the Democrats as the midterms approach. They know there is more damning evidence on the way if they don’t stop the investigations of the chicanery that went on before and after Trump was elected. Schiff and his accomplices are up to their necks in it and the most urgent priority on the “to do” list of a newly elected Democratic majority in either House of Congress will be the abrupt termination of any related committee investigations.

This is not conjecture. Both the Democrats and their media toadies have been dropping none-too-subtle hints about it since they began fantasizing about a “blue wave.” Last week Elizabeth Warren expressed fear that the Democratic Party might not win either the House or Congress: “I run every day filled with terror that it won’t because Donald Trump remains in control of the House and the Senate.” When asked how the Democrats could accomplish anything with only partial control of the government she answered, “They can do it partly by stopping some of the bleed.” Thomas Friedman explains what that means in the New York Times:

It is up to the Democrats to… get hold of at least one lever of power — the House or the Senate—in order to oust the most corrupt Republican lawmakers who lead key committees… to protect the F.B.I., the Justice Department and Robert Mueller from Trump’s intimidation.

In other words, the Democrats want to win in November to protect corrupt executive branch departments from their boss. That would be Donald Trump, who won the presidency in a free and fair election. This is what should scare you about the OIG report. The Inspector General is not merely afraid of reprisals from the most powerful government police organ on the planet, his report hedges his bets because he isn’t sure that our democratically elected representatives are going to win the war they are fighting with the deep state. He knows that if the Democrats win in November, the deep state will devolve into a police state.

TAKING LIBERTIES

Little by little through Republican and Democratic Administrations over many decades ( a lifetime ) our Liberties have slowly been stolen from us. Incrementalism works and the press pays little attention ( short attention spans, especially in recent years). The public schools continue to dumb-down the electorate, as well.

A U.S. Supreme Court Decision here, another there. When the U.S. Government is able to take-off their referee striped T-shirt and put on a jersey and actually take sides in the game, like was attempted in 2016, then we have all lost our Republic and our basic Constitutional liberties. We can expect to suffer accordingly.

So, the majority of Americans today are really agnostic to all the recent shenanigans in Washington, D.C. The IG. Report is long delayed and really old news by now. A big Yawn !! Who really cares? Time better spent going to the beach. Besides, Hillary and Bill Clinton have been at it for 35 years, beginning in Little Rock, Ark. in 1979. So, its just not important enough anymore to get in a tizzy now, it can’t be fixed. The rot is in from the head down to the toe. Too Little, Too Late.

Only a complete ‘extraction’ or social and political/financial collapse can save our Republic. Be ready to make real changes at the precise moment the system caves-in on itself. Much at stake. We are just walking down the Appian Way, as many ancient Romans once did in their era. History is repeating in real time. The “Paradigm” (C 2017), by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn.

Three Of The Five FBI Employees Dinged For Anti-Trump Bias In IG Report Ended Up Working On Mueller Probe

Ban Robert Mueller

Jeff Mordock and Alex Swoyer have written in The Washington Times:

Three of the five FBI employees dinged for anti-Trump bias in the inspector general’s new report ended up on the special counsel’s investigation into Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, raising still more questions about the team Robert Mueller assembled.

Two of those — FBI lawyer Lisa Page and her paramour, Agent Peter Strzok — became known when their vehemently anti-Trump text messages came to light. But the inspector general’s report identifies a third person, labeled “FBI Attorney 2,” who also fired off messages denigrating Mr. Trump and saying “Viva le resistance.”

None of the three are still on the special counsel’s team. Ms. Page left weeks after the investigation opened, while Mr. Strzok departed after a couple of months, when his anti-Trump messages came to light. And Attorney 2, identified this week as Kevin Clinesmith by Rep. Mark Meadows, was ousted from the probe in February, after the inspector general found his messages.

Mr. Clinesmith also had sent coworkers political jokes about Mr. Trump, including one instant message after the election saying, “I am so stressed about what I could have done differently.”

According to the report, Mr. Clinesmith worked on the 2016 probe into Hillary Clinton’s email use, then worked on the FBI’s original investigation into the Trump campaign, and, eventually, with the special counsel’s investigation into Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign.

The inspector general described him as the “primary FBI attorney” assigned to the Russia probe when it started back in early 2017.

“If FBI Attorney 2 has the bias that he has, sure, it’s problematic,” Mr. Meadows, North Carolina Republican, told The Washington Times.

The special counsel’s office downplayed Mr. Clinesmith’s involvement Wednesday, portraying him more as a bit player not key for its roster of prosecutors and federal agents. They said he was never detailed to the special counsel, but rather remained an FBI agent who supported the investigation in an administrative capacity.

“The special counsel’s investigation is being conducted by prosecutors and agents; FBI Attorney 2 was neither,” said Joshua Stueve, a spokesperson for the special counsel.

The lawyer himself told the inspector general his anti-Trump comments were “personal feelings” about the election.

Mr. Mueller’s probe has faced questions over the political leanings of his team.

The special counsel office said last year that lawyers picked for Mr. Mueller’s team donated more than $60,000 to Democrats. Only one lawyer donated to Republicans, contributing the maximum amount of $2,750. In total, the probe’s prosecutors donated $19,000 to Hillary Clinton’s 2008 and 2016 political campaigns, according to Mr. Mueller’s office.

But some media outlets have claimed the numbers underestimate the amount of Democratic donations by as much as $12,000. The donation discrepancy only further raises the bias accusations lodged against Mr. Mueller’s team, which Mr. Trump has repeatedly highlighted.

Earlier this month Mr. Trump, on Twitter, referred to Mueller’s team as “13 Angry Democrats.” He said there had “never been a group of people on a case so biased or conflicted.”

The inspector general is looking into whether Mr. Strzok’s anti-Trump bias affected the FBI’s original Russia investigation. Inspector General Michael Horowitz said investigators have not been able to rule out the possibility that decisions to focus investigations on Mr. Trump rather than on Mrs. Clinton in October 2016 was a result of Mr. Strzok’s feelings.

All told, the inspector general found five different FBI employees who displayed a bias who were involved in the Clinton investigation. Only Ms. Page and Mr. Strzok were named in last week’s 500-page report, but Mr. Meadows identified Ms. Clinesmith and another lawyer, Sally Moyer, during a hearing Tuesday.

There is no indication Ms. Moyer had a role on the special counsel’s probe.

All five have been referred for an internal review, and FBI Director Christopher Wray has promised bias training for FBI employees to prevent a repeat.

But their early involvement could be a problem for Mr. Mueller. In a footnote to his report, Mr. Horowitz noted that an unrelated 2012 prosecution under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act was soured by “racy texts” exchanged by two FBI agents and an informant.

The Justice Department even uses that 2012 case in its employee training as an example of what not to say in text messages.

Ms. Page left the FBI in May, while Mr. Strzok and Mr. Clinesmith are still employed there.

Mr. Stzok had been reassigned to HR after being removed from Mr. Mueller’s team, but he was escorted out of the FBI building last week.

Solomon Wisenberg, a Washington attorney who served as independent counsel Kenneth Starr’s deputy during investigations into then-President Bill Clinton, said it is rare for people to be removed from a special counsel investigation.

“It is not unheard of to have a person quietly ushered out, but to have two people kicked off for the appearance of bias is very unusual,” he said.

Mr. Wisenberg said he recalled two people leaving on their own during the five years the Starr probe ran its course. But Mueller has forcibly removed two people, Mr. Clinesmith and Mr. Strzok, in less than a year.

“Turnover is unusual because these things are so exciting who would want to leave?” he said.

Mr. Wisenberg believes Mr. Mueller is an honorable person trying to conduct a fair investigation, but described some of his hiring as “tone deaf,” given the accusations of bias that have grown after some team members’ social media posts and political donations were disclosed.

“I think [Mueller] should have been more sensitive,” he said. “It’s obvious Mueller didn’t query his people enough, but that’s not grounds for stopping an investigation.

Lewis Schiliro, a former head of the FBI’s New York office, called the fact that two people were removed from Mueller’s team “a black eye” for the venerable bureau.

The fact that these agents made those comments via text and instant message is troubling, he said, because it creates a written record of their biases that could be used in court to undermine their credibility.

“An FBI agent’s job, first and foremost, is to testify in a court of law,” he said. “But as a defense attorney, the first thing I’m going to do is get their messages and social media posts and show how they are biased witnesses.”

Mr. Schiliro said he couldn’t imagine FBI agents being so cavalier about their political opinions during his time with the bureau.

“It’s just an unbelievable situation,” he said of the anti-Trump comments. “Why these people put those comments out there is beyond me.”

But Andrew Leipold, a law professor at the University of Illinois and also a former member of Mr. Starr’s team, said the removals of Mr. Strzok and Mr. Clinesmith dispel accusations of bias that have been lodged against the Mueller probe.

Mr. Trump has been one the most vocal in accusing Mr. Mueller of running a political inquisition, calling the investigation a “hoax” and “witch hunt.”

“If the investigation was really as biased as some have alleged, would Mueller be removing people who are biased?” Mr. Leipold said.

Ultimately, the the Mueller investigation will be judged by the facts and conclusions not by the bias allegations surrounding two people who left the investigation relatively earl in the process, Mr. Leipold said.

“Is it helpful to Mueller? No. But it doesn’t undermine his credibility because we need to see what the facts are and what people say under oath,” he said.

DOJ’s Rod Rosenstein Is A Traitor [UPDATED]


[Rod Rosenstein and Heinrich Himmler]

Eric Tucker has written for the Associated Press:

Twelve Russian military intelligence officers hacked into the Clinton presidential campaign and Democratic Party, releasing tens of thousands of stolen and politically damaging communications, in a sweeping conspiracy by the Kremlin to meddle in the 2016 U.S. election, according to a grand jury indictment announced days before President Donald Trump’s summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The indictment stands as special counsel Robert Mueller’s first allegation implicating the Russian government directly in criminal behavior meant to sway the presidential election.

U.S. intelligence agencies have said the meddling was aimed at helping the Trump campaign and harming the election bid of his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton. The effort also included bogus Facebook ads and social media postings that prosecutors say were aimed at influencing public opinion and sowing discord on hot-button social issues.

The indictment lays out a broad, coordinated effort starting in March 2016 to break into key Democratic email accounts, such as those belonging to the Democratic National Committee, the Clinton campaign and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Among those targeted was John Podesta, the Clinton campaign chairman.

The Kremlin denied anew that it tried to sway the election. “The Russian state has never interfered and has no intention of interfering in the U.S. elections,” Putin’s foreign affairs adviser, Yuri Ushakov, said Friday.

But the indictment identifies the defendants as officers with Russia’s Main Intelligence Directorate of the General Staff, also known as GRU. It accuses them of covertly monitoring the computers of dozens of Democratic officials and volunteers, implanting malicious computer code known as malware and using phishing emails to gain control of the accounts of people associated with the Clinton campaign.

By June 2016, the defendants began planning the release of tens of thousands of stolen emails and documents, the indictment alleges. The messages were released through fictitious personas like DCLeaks and Guccifer 2.0.

The charges come as Mueller continues to investigate potential coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign to influence the presidential election. The indictment does not allege that Trump campaign associates were involved in the hacking efforts or that any American was knowingly in contact with Russian intelligence officers.

The indictment also does not allege that any vote tallies were altered by hacking.

Still, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said the internet “allows foreign adversaries to attack Americans in new and unexpected ways. Free and fair elections are hard-fought and contentious and there will always be adversaries who work to exacerbate domestic differences and try to confuse, divide and conquer us.”

A White House statement offered no condemnation of the alleged Russian conspiracy. Instead it focused on the fact that no Trump campaign officials or Americans were implicated in the new indictment. Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, said on Twitter that it was time to end the Mueller investigation since “no Americans are involved.”

But with Mueller still investigating, it’s not known whether further indictments are taking shape or will.

Before Friday, 20 people and three companies had been charged in the Mueller investigation. The 20 are four former Trump campaign and White House aides, three of whom have pleaded guilty to different crimes and agreed to cooperate, and 13 Russians accused of participating in a hidden but powerful social media campaign to sway U.S. public opinion in the 2016 election.

If the involvement of the GRU officers in the hacking effort is proved, it would shatter the Kremlin denials of the Russian state’s involvement in the U.S. elections.

The GRU, which answers to the Russian military’s General Staff, is part of the state machine and its involvement would indicate that the orders to interfere in the U.S. election came from the very top.

One attempt at interference noted in the indictment came hours after Trump, in a July 27, 2016, speech, suggested Russians look for emails that Clinton said she had deleted from her tenure as secretary of state.

“Russia, if you’re listening,” Trump said, “I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing.”

That evening, the indictment says, the Russians attempted to break into email accounts used by Clinton’s personal office, along with 76 Clinton campaign email addresses.

Hours before the Justice Department announcement, Trump complained anew that the special counsel’s investigation is complicating his efforts to forge a better working relationship with Russia. Trump and Putin are scheduled to hold talks Monday in Finland, a meeting largely sought by Trump.

After the indictments were announced, top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer called on Trump to cancel his meeting with Putin until Russia takes steps to prove it won’t interfere in future elections. He said the indictments are “further proof of what everyone but the president seems to understand: President Putin is an adversary who interfered in our elections to help President Trump win.”

Trump complained about “stupidity” when asked about Mueller’s probe earlier Friday, at a news conference in Britain with Prime Minister Theresa May.

“We do have a — a political problem where — you know in the United States we have this stupidity going on,” he said. “Pure stupidity. But it makes it very hard to do something with Russia. Anything you do, it’s always going to be, ‘Oh, Russia, he loves Russia.'”

“I love the United States,” Trump continued. “But I love getting along with Russia and China and other countries.”

See https://www.yahoo.com/news/12-russians-accused-hacking-democrats-2016-us-election-161839939–politics.html (“Moscow now accused of US election meddling, in indictment“) (emphasis added); see also https://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/mueller-russis-rosenstein/2018/07/13/id/871546/ (“Hours before the Justice Department announcement, Trump complained anew that the special counsel’s investigation is complicating his efforts to forge a better working relationship with Russia. Trump and Putin are to hold talks Monday in Finland“)

Rosenstein and his co-conspirators in the “Deep State” are every bit as evil as Putin and his thugs. He and others in the highest echelons of the “Deep State” have tried to destroy the candidacy and the presidency of Donald Trump.

Rosenstein must be removed, prosecuted, and imprisoned for treason. He is a despicable “Deep State” traitor.

In addition to Rosenstein, the treasonous wrongdoers include but are not limited to Barack Obama; former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton; former Attorneys General Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch; former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates; former FBI Directors Robert Mueller and James Comey; former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper; former CIA Director John Brennan; former National Security Advisor Susan Rice; former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe; and Senior Advisor to Obama, Valerie Jarrett.

Rosenstein’s latest announcement is timed to undermine our President before his meeting with Putin.

. . .

For years now, I have made my position totally clear about Russia’s killer Putin. However, he is the leader of his country today; and President Trump is correct in pursuing America’s best interests with him.

The despicable Rosenstein does not make America’s foreign policy; and he is an enemy of our great nation.

Peter Strzok’s Arrogance Is The Product Of A Corrupt FBI

Peter Strzok

Michael Goodwin has written in the New York Post:

Watching FBI agent Peter Strzok battle with Congress, my initial reaction was pure anger. His repeated, arrogant insistence that he had done nothing wrong despite tons of evidence to the contrary convinced me he deserved immediate firing — if not the firing squad.

Gradually, though, anger gave way to amazement as Strzok grew increasingly combative and condescending. Given his predicament, the sneering and smirking were stupid, and yet he persisted.

Who is this jerk, I wondered, and how in the hell did he get to be a big shot at the FBI? And why are taxpayers still paying for the privilege of his malignant presence on the FBI payroll?

My answers can be summarized in four names: James Comey, Jeff Sessions, Rod Rosenstein and Christopher Wray. They are chief culprits in the death of public trust in the Department of Justice.

The cause of death was murder, and it was an inside job.

Strzok, whose voluminous texts with his office lover show him to be a king of partisan bias, rose to leadership positions under former FBI director Comey — and it shows. Comey’s self-righteousness was his ultimate undoing, but not before he led the agency into a double death grip of corruption and rank partisanship.

Blinded by his own ambition, Comey brushed aside superiors, rules and maybe laws while giving Hillary Clinton a free pass and turning the screws on Donald Trump. Comey defends himself by saying he sought to protect the FBI’s independence, as if it — and he — are a fourth branch of government that is beyond accountability from the other three.

In the end, he disgraced the agency and himself, though gained consolation in the millions he made by selling his book to Trump haters.

But the FBI didn’t stink only from the head — Comey’s deputy, Andrew McCabe, also was fired, and could be prosecuted for allegedly being dishonest with investigators about a media leak.

Strzok appears to be a chip off the Comey/McCabe block. Like them, he insists he is committed to the FBI’s high standards, but his reprehensible conduct makes a mockery of his claims.

His stated contempt for Trump and his promise to stop him from becoming president render Strzok unfit to be a dogcatcher.

But, aping his mentors, he nonetheless demands his denials of wrongdoing be accepted as if his integrity is self-evident. All three believe they are entitled to trust and respect, without having to earn or return either.

Which brings us to Sessions, Rosenstein and Wray. How can they stomach the likes of Strzok and refuse to clean the stables?

Sessions, as attorney general, is nominally the boss over his deputy, Rosenstein, and FBI director Wray. But by recusing himself from anything related to the 2016 campaign, Sessions abdicated the most important part of his job.

As I have said, his appointment was Trump’s biggest mistake, one that denied the president and the nation a functioning attorney general. The most critical result is the unchecked and apparently endless investigation of special counsel Robert Mueller.

Speaking of which, breathes there a soul who believes the timing of Mueller’s latest batch of ghost indictments of Russians has nothing to do with Trump’s planned meeting with Vladimir Putin? The timing shows Rosenstein, who announced the charges, and Mueller are neck deep in politics by trying to force Trump to confront Putin about the meddling charges.

Is that their job? Would they embarrass and try to box in Barack Obama or any other president?

Their decision persuades me both harbor suspicion of Trump’s legitimacy, and thus feel entitled to abuse their powers to wade into issues that are none of their business. In that way, they are no better than Comey, McCabe and Strzok — applying a double standard of law enforcement based on their personal views. That makes them, at the least, allies of the resistance.

Rosenstein’s stonewalling conduct toward Congress over Russia-probe documents is especially suspicious. Claims he threatened members and their staffs ring true, and, if they are, it means he lied under oath when he denied making any threats.

But, thanks to the somnolent Sessions, we can add Rosenstein to the long list of those above accountability. A real attorney general — oh, what’s the use? Sessions is not a real attorney general and never will be.

Then there is Comey’s successor, Christopher Wray. He looks as if he wandered into the wrong movie theater and can’t find the exit.

He defined himself as unwilling to tackle the mess he inherited by downplaying the devastating Inspector General report on the handling of the Clinton investigation. While conceding the findings made it “clear we’ve got some work to do,” he minimized them by saying, “It’s focused on a specific set of events back in 2016, and a small number of FBI employees connected with those events. Nothing in the report impugns the integrity of our workforce as a whole, or the FBI as an institution.”

Baloney. While it’s true only a fraction of the total employees were singled out, they were the director of the FBI, his top deputy, the deputy’s top lawyer and Strzok, the head of counterintelligence.

Others were also faulted, but not named, including an agent who tried to get his son a job on Clinton’s campaign while sending campaign boss John Podesta “heads up” e-mails.

And so the corruption of the Justice Department proceeds, unmolested by actual justice. The voter revolution of 2016 has more work to do.

Goodwin’s words ring loud and true:

Sessions is not a real attorney general and never will be.

Therein lies the genesis of the greatest scandal in American history, being hidden from the people. But ultimately, truth and justice will prevail and reign.

FBI Agent Peter Strzok is a little arrogant fuck*boy.
