Calls For Special Counsel For FISA Probe

Some Republican members of the House of Representatives are calling for the appointment of a second Special Counsel to investigate the FISA abuse by the FBI and DOJ. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has ordered the Justice Department′s Inspector General, Michael Horowitz, to review what happened. However, the DOJ′s IG does not have much power. Horowitz cannot issue subpoenas nor empanel a grand jury to hear testimony and possibly issue criminal indictments. On top of that, many of those who were involved in the FISA warrant case for surveillance of the Trump campaign are no longer in the government. Compelling them to testify without a subpoena may prove fruitless.

 

 

 

We already have Robert Mueller as a Special Counsel who has spent nearly a year investigating President Donald Trump and those about him before and after the 2016 election. Mueller has gone far afield from just trying to determine if there was any collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. He now seems to be looking into Trump′s business dealings as well as other avenues. With no evidence yet discovered of collusion, nor even of obstructing justice in the dismissal of James Comey, Mueller is fishing for something, anything, to indict the President on.

 

Horowitz has been busy reviewing the FBI′s probe in the Hillary Clinton email scandal and the DNC server hacking. His full report on that has had its released delayed several times over the past year. The talk now is that it may be released in April. The latest bit of news on that topic is how Peter Strzok ignored and never interviewed a witness who claims that the Hillary Clinton private email server was hacked by several foreign governments.  Strzok failed to follow up on this, as well as not filing a 'threat assessment' report as he is required to do by statute.

 

Perhaps the biggest question in authorizing a special counsel for the FISA probe is timing and patience? Will the American people tolerate another year or two of this intrigue? Should Horowitz find sufficient evidence for a criminal probe, the odds are such would not start until next year. Even if a special counsel is appointed now, we are probably still looking at a year before any actual indictments are handed out by a grand jury.

 

On the other hand, Devin Nunes is doing a fine job via the House Intelligence Committee. Phase 1 seems to have been completed and certainly points to probable criminal acts by some in both the FBI and DOJ. Phase 2 is looking into how the State Department was used, or misused, to effect the FISA warrant request. We have also learned that most of the first dozen people issued a questionnaire by Nunes have replied and answered the 10 questions asked. Including former CIA Director John Brennan and former DNI Director James Clapper. Nunes will be sending the questionnaire to others in the next week or so.

 

I have to think that at some point, Phase 3 will either be bringing in the FISA judges before the House committee to tell what they know, or those in other agencies like the CIA, DNI and NSA. Ultimately, the BIG question will be what did Barack Obama know and when did he know it? Let′s call that one Phase 5! Its already looking pretty bad for Obama. If we are to believe Brennan, he claims Obama had been informed about Russia′s interference in our elections in August of 2016. Even though some GOP members of Congress were voicing concerns back in April, 2016. Obama always seems to learn things from the news media, I guess he missed that nugget.

 

I′m sure you and I can already guess the answer to all of this. But, we are not on a grand jury nor do we have any powers to indict nor prosecute. If it were up to me, I′d throw the whole bunch in jail right now! James Comey, Sally Yates, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr and his dopy wife, too! While we′re at it, toss Obama and Hillary in there too, along with Chris Steele and the jerk from Fusion GPS. There are probably about a dozen or so others who also played in role in this abuse of power, like Samantha Powers and others who unmasked names of American citizens from electronic intercepts. I′m sure we can squeeze Bill Clinton in there, too, just to keep Hillary company. Too bad we don′t have some distant island hellhole somewhere to just exile the whole traitorous bunch for life!
