During the 2016 campaign president Trump said that he intended to “drain the swamp” of Washington, DC corruption and that conservatives and Republicans are going to win so much that “you are going to get tired of winning!”
And Trump just keeps winning. The economy, the #1 issue to most voters, is humming like it has not done in 30 years. He has started down the road to de-nuclearizing North Korea and brought back hostages. The soccer World Cup is coming to America, Canada and Mexico in 2026. Criminal illegals are being ejected from the country at a furious clip. Conservative judges are filling the judiciary, including the Supreme Court. Republicans are on the way to doing very well in the upcoming November elections.
And on and on… Now the report from the Inspector General of the Justice Department investigating the handling of the Hillary Clinton e-mail scandal has been released and it contains really bad news for many Deep State Swamp Dwellers and really good news for… president Donald J. Trump.
Trump is not implicated in any way, shape or form in the scandal since it emerged and concluded before he was even elected, but many Deep Staters are now under the microscope and are portrayed in a very bad light, including former FBI director James Comey who may be in legal jeopardy over his handling of the scandal.
When Trump fired Comey on May 9, 2017, the media went nuts. But now we are seeing that Trump had good reason to fire Comey since Comey appears to be serially dishonest and evasive.
Wonderful… Trump just keeps winning. He has called Comey “a liar and a leaker”. Good. This reports seems to confirm that.
Below are excerpts from a variety of new articles about the Inspector General’s report, with a Nikitas3.com comment after each excerpt:
Alex Pappas at Fox news reports: Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, in a comprehensive and at-times scathing report on the handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, exposed extraordinary text messages by a top FBI official vowing to “stop” Donald Trump — while calling then-director James Comey’s actions in the case “insubordinate.”
The long-awaited report was released Thursday afternoon, spanning nearly 600 pages and scrutinizing the actions of numerous figures who played a key role in the Justice Department and FBI’s investigation. It is the product of an 18-month review, incorporating dozens of witness interviews and hundreds of thousands of documents.
But one of the most stunning findings concerns texts between (FBI) agent Peter Strzok and bureau colleague Lisa Page.
According to the report, Page texted Strzok in August 2016 and said: “[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!”
“No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it,” Strzok responded.
… Strzok was a lead investigator on the Clinton case and later worked the Russia investigation before being removed from that assignment.
Nikitas3.com comment: This is all we need to know. Strzok hoped to use his government power to overturn an election. This is the biggest scandal in American history, 1,000 times bigger than Watergate, when connected with all of the other corruption. It is a major victory for president Trump that it has been exposed since it puts the Deep State, including the Russia investigation, in a dark light.
Pappas writes: (The IG report said), “In particular, we were concerned about text messages exchanged by FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, Special Counsel to the Deputy Director, that potentially indicated or created the appearance that investigative decisions were impacted by bias or improper considerations.”
… Months ago, Horowitz revealed other anti-Trump texts between the two FBI officials, who were romantically involved. The “stop” Trump text goes further, and fueled claims from the White House that the bureau was biased against him.
Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the report “reaffirmed the president’s suspicions about Comey’s conduct and the political bias amongst some of the members of the FBI.”
The FBI, in its response to the review, said the inspector general “found no evidence to connect the political views expressed by these employees with the specific investigative decisions.”
Nikitas3.com comment: So Horowitz found no evidence. That is far from an unbiased jury finding no evidence. Remember that Horowitz is a Swamp Dweller. That he has gone this far in his report is troubling. If he were merely a neutral observer the report would be devastating.
The bias is so obvious. The report’s conclusion that this bias was not affecting the work of these people is an outrage. Anyone who understands human nature knows how bias works – it infiltrates deep inside of people and controls them.
And don’t think that this case is closing with this report. There are calls from two Republican legislators to see the drafts of the report that may have been significantly altered under political pressure to soften the report’s impact on certain people. If this is true, then even Horowitz could be in trouble.
Pappas writes: Horowitz’s investigation looked at a variety of other allegations, including whether it was improper for Comey to make a public announcement recommending against prosecution over the Clinton email arrangement while calling her actions “extremely careless.”
“We found that it was extraordinary and insubordinate for Comey to conceal his intentions from his superiors, the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General, for the admitted purpose of preventing them from telling him not to make the statement, and to instruct his subordinates in the FBI to do the same,” Horowitz’s report says.
Nikitas3.com comment: ‘Insubordinate’ is a soft term that is used to cover up for Comey.
By the way, we see no mention of Trump wrongdoing, right? Right…
Pappas writes: The report also faults the FBI – and specifically Strzok – for not acting quickly enough after the discovery of Clinton emails on the laptop of ex-Rep. Anthony Weiner in the fall of 2016. The report says Strzok and others argued that the Russia investigation was a “higher priority” at the time than reviewing the laptop.
“We found this explanation unpersuasive and concerning,” the report said, noting the FBI could have gotten a search warrant in late September, but waited more than a month to do so — ultimately revisiting the case days before the election. Clinton has long said that announcement contributed to her defeat. But the report also suggested that Strzok, ironically, may have acted out of bias for Clinton in slow-walking the laptop review.
Nikitas3.com comment: Yes, a phony made-up Russia collusion probe was more important that the known fact that State Department emails had ended up on a private laptop. This is outrageous.
Fox News reported in a separate article: The Justice Department inspector general has referred five FBI employees for investigation in connection with politically charged texts, revealing in its report on the Hillary Clinton email case that more bureau officials than previously thought were exchanging anti-Trump messages.
The long-awaited report largely dealt with the Justice Department and FBI’s handling of the Clinton case but uncovered numerous messages that “appeared to mix political opinion with discussions about the MYE investigation.”
MYE, or “Midyear Exam,” was the code used in the FBI to refer to the investigation into Clinton’s private email server.
Nikitas3.com comment: Let’s get all of these people investigated. Why did they give this probe of Hillary a code name? Answer: To cover up what they really were doing. We will discover that this is all corrupt, if it is investigated properly.
Fox News writes: The report noted that it was specifically concerned about text messages exchanged between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page that “potentially indicated or created the appearance that investigative decisions were impacted by bias or improper considerations.”
Strzok and Page, who were romantically involved, both served for a short period of time on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation team. Strzok was reassigned following the revelations of his anti-Trump texts. Page resigned last month.
Nikitas3.com comment: If these types of biases were found among people investigating Hillary, it would be a major story. This bias obviously was part of the overall Swamp Dweller plan to get Trump. It is heartening that it finally is being exposed.
Fox reports: In September, (two unnamed agents) conversed again, bashing Trump supporters as “retarded.”
“I’m trying to think of a ‘would I rather’ instead of spending time with those people,” Agent 5 sent.
Agent 1 asked, “stick your tongue in a fan??”
Agent 5 later wrote: “I would rather have brunch with trump and a bunch of his supporters like the ones from ohio that are retarded.”
Nikitas3.com comment: Imagine if conservative FBI agents said such things about blacks, muslims, gays or women. There would be armageddon but not when referring to white people.
The Daily Caller reported about Comey: FBI Director James Comey reportedly used a private email account to conduct official FBI business, the new inspector general report will confirm.
Politico’s Kyle Cheney tweeted on Thursday that Inspector General Michael Horowitz found during a probe into the FBI’s Clinton email investigation that Comey was using a “personal Gmail account to conduct official FBI business.”
Embattled FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page were also found to be using personal email accounts for work purposes, according to a review of the IG report.
Nikitas3.com comment: Thus these people not only were biased and probably allowed that bias to influence them, but they also used unsecured email accounts. Can this get any worse? Yes.
The Daily Caller also reported: Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Wednesday that more firings are possible following the release of a forthcoming Department of Justice report of an investigation into the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
Nikitas3.com comment: This could lead all the way up to Hillary Clinton. After all, who could have imagined one year ago that this report would be released and would be so damaging to the Deep State and so helpful to president Trump.
It may well blossom into something much bigger. This report is a great start. If president Trump replaces attorney general Jeff Sessions, which he may do after the coming election, we could see some real prosecutions.
And once again, president Trump has not been implicated in one word of this report. Good news.
Here’s one more troubling story from The Daily Caller:
A bombshell inspector general report released Thursday revealed that several FBI employees improperly received gifts from reporters, in connection with possible leaks of sensitive information.
Although public details of these exchanges are scant, they could constitute prosecutable violations of federal gift-giving rules.
The gifts in question included “tickets to sporting events, golfing outings, drinks and meals, and admittance to nonpublic social events.”
“We will separately report on those investigations as they are concluded, consistent with the Inspector General Act, other applicable federal statutes, and OIG policy,” the report reads.
Gifting rules for executive branch officials are strict and exacting. The US Office of Government Ethics provides that “executive branch employees may not solicit or accept gifts that are given because of their official positions or that come from certain interested sources (‘prohibited sources’).”
This is almost a throwaway line in the report, but it is a very significant indicator of corruption. It needs to be probed.
