Comey, Comey… Mueller’s homie

Is there a nutjob in the house?

The People’s Pundit Daily

Comey and the Clinton Email Case: The Untold Inside Story

May 11, 2017

Mr. Comey, who was fired by President Donald Trump Tuesday on recommendations from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, claimed the decision not to prosecute Mrs. Clinton for mishandling classified information was “unanimous.”

However, multiple sources not only told PPD the decision wasn’t unanimous, but also that the former director undercut their investigation from start to finish.

“Comey was never an investigator or agent. Special agents are trained and were insulted that Comey included them in his artificial ‘we,’” one agent, who spoke on the condition of anonymity said. “To suggest all agreed there was not enough to prosecute, was misleading. It’s false. Trained investigators agreed that there was more than enough. He stood in the way.

The story told to PPD must be retold in the proper context…./

See https://www.peoplespunditdaily.com/news/politics/2017/05/11/fbi-james-comey-clinton-email-case-untold-inside-story/

Context is everything. Interesting also that Comey and Mueller are best of friends and it is unanimously praised. That’s like David Axelrod being independent about Obama.

Normally, that is what you’d call a Huge Conflict of Interest. Yet even among the 535 members of the cesspool in DC, no one finds this fraternal friendship problematic and praised the selection of an unbiased “Independent Counsel.”

Even in the media, no one seems to find it troubling. Instead, they celebrate the fact that the two good friends go way back, personally and professionally. Cosa Nostra comes to mind. Maybe we ought to subpoena all the correspondence — writings and otherwise — between the two?

Age of Chaos in Government: by usual suspects

The Democrats and liberal leftists, Marxists have embarked on a Shock and Chaos campaign. Trump and DOJ fires FBI Dir. Comey and all the liberal fruits rise to the top.

Leading Democrats say they either lack confidence in Deputy AG Rod Rosentein, or that it is shaken, after only confirming him weeks ago. Dems say they will stop a new nominee any way possible until a special prosecutor is appointed. One can see where that is headed — or how many resignations can they call for? They took the opportunity to renew calls for protests against the Trump administration.

Meanwhile, their hearings in the House and Senate will continue in any case. They will have Comey testify in closed-session, then in public. And at least two Senators, Blumenthal and Warner, hope to hire Comey in their Russia-collusion investigation. They also want to start a second, stealth investigation in the Judicial Committee to look into the AG’s office, including Rosenstein’s actions and AG Sessions, along with new nominations.

In the midst of this, Democrats and and mainstream media, like David Gregory, have said Trump could not fire Comey in the middle of this investigation. Apparently an FBI director has termination immunity if FBI has an investigation involving or surrounding the president. Really? Sounds like a job security plan to me.

Not alone, Dems are trying to enlist usual turncoat Republicans McCain, Flake, Sasse, Graham, Collins to reinforce their efforts to prevent any new nominee and push for Special Prosecuter et al. Then they will double up on their usual radicalizing any process.

Enter the up and comers: Senator Corey Booker, potential wannabe Obamafile, takes to the MSM circuit to declare, “The Russians are coming, the Russians are coming!” (maybe he should have a chat with president flexibility – Gumby)

Then, having created all this chaos in their shock treatment, Democrats think they can use that “sad” state we are in to try to impeach the president. It should be laughable, but for them it is not. Plus they have their media/press accomplices to drive their narrative.

So welcome to the Radical-United States of America, at the pleasure of Democrats.

Double standards, Comey’s lame excuses

Let’s see now: James Comey goes out of his way to bury, seal off, and officially close the Hillary investigation. Well, or whatever the hell he was investigating. That would head off or terminate future, continuing probes once she presumably assumed office. Closure.

But then, at the very same time, he left an ongoing investigation wide open to run the course for as long as he — presumably, he alone — felt justified in continuing the stealthy probe. To that end, he already advanced the narrative in previous hearings that some of these investigations can take a long time, even years. And he’s not compelled to say.

Yet in Hillary’s case he wanted to nail the box shut by officially calling it a closed investigation. Nothing he can do to change those facts.

So what we have left in the smokescreen is an ongoing, never ending, probe involving the Trump campaign or possible ties to Russia. It is on course to run out any clock. No limits. Why would Comey need any? ‘We don’t confirm or deny investigations.

In effect, he is doing the very thing to Trump that he feared doing so much to Hillary. No way can he claim to be objective. The Hillary probe was a show investigation anyway, done to end possible questions about her later. Just the way she did in Benghazi, Hillary could claim it was all investigated very closely and cleared her of any wrongdoing.

That was the goal in the server/email investigation all along, giving her security of having been cleared. So having this investigation jihad on Trump continue over the course of his first term bothers who? What harm would it do? Why is there a need to close it? All the questions he feverishly felt needed answering on Hillary.

For Trump, who cares?

Something tangentially came out in the latest hearing on Wednesday. Comey admitted that the collateral contact information collected on Americans via foreign target surveillance is stored away. Then he was asked if that database was searchable . Indeed, yes he admitted it is searchable. Which means at a later date, or anytime really, they could access and search that database — meaning search people’s information. Done without a warrant.

Comey recently expressed that old political adage that if he was making both sides unhappy he must be doing something right. Somehow that demonstrates impartiality, fairness, or being apolitical. No, it is possible to frustrate both sides and be wrong all the way around, to both sides. Just because you gored two different oxen, does not mean you were justified in goring either, or that you were fair to each.

The Comey problem: same as the old one

I will not bash Conmey for reopening the Clinton investigation, but results do mater. How quickly Dems have turned on their pillar of integrity they’ve been touting for months.

Comey has put himself in a box. He made a wrong decision in July, now he reopens his flawed investigation. So what do we expect? Well, he has new information that does not change his original determination in July. No matter the new evidence, he will likely come to the same conclusion — rather than admit his conclusion was flawed in the first place.

He had little choice but to bring it forward. I expect this will just get buried in the same way and place that the other information got deep-sixed.

Comey’s only real choice forward now is to be consistently wrong, at least regarding the email server situation. His problem is how to explain it? Though taking a different position now could jeopardize any integrity of the first conclusion that Dems went gaga over. So he has a huge explanation problem.

Remember the main crux of this current debacle is that he said in his July statement that the investigation was completed. In his rush to put a period on the sentence, then, he prematurely shot himself in the foot. Now he has to declare, whoops it isn’t complete “I’m going to reopen it.” Though he already set the precedent and standard to dismiss, explain away, or marginalize even this new evidence and information. How does he do all that?

Aren’t you glad you are not James Comey? No matter what, he is going to piss off at least half the people in the country.

However, the last major problem is still Dep of Injustice which proves unwilling to prosecute. Could they prosecute Huma instead of Hillary? I have doubts. We already know they have refused to prosecute it. So then, what does even new information mean? It means the same treatment as the old information. It only makes the DOJ look even worse than it already does. We have a politicized and radicalized government.

In conclusion one can say, in other words, that the FBI’s pointless investigation into nothingness continues. Be it officially declared and noted this day of 2016! In the end Hillary wants to use the fact that the investigation went nowhere to confirm her innocence — much as I detest that result. And she’ll use it as some kind of accomplishment, having navigated another investigation.

The question is not whether Hillary Clinton is above the law, but how far above the law she is. See what the seeds of corruption have brought us?

Clinton’s web of investigation problems

What a tangled web she weaves, when at first she practiced to deceive. Hillary has had a few encounters with reality along her campaign trail in the last year and half. But at every one she took the road not traveled to obfuscate it. Then she blamed others for her own scandalous behavior. Yet she always says she is claiming responsibility. Lie.

She wants to create the illusion of accountability.

Hillary claims she apologized for the server mishap. Well, she said it was a mistake. A four year long, two-year investigative one. That didn’t stop or curtail her lying about it. The people found out just weeks before the Democrat convention that she was not being charged for anything. Surprise!

BREAKING: After Endorsing Clinton, Obama Admin Calls FBI’s Email Investigation ‘Criminal’

The Politistick [excerpt]

[Josh earnest said] “They don’t have political jobs. They have career jobs as law enforcement officers and as prosecutors and investigators. That’s what their responsibility is. And that’s why the President when discussing this issue in each stage has reiterated his commitment to this principle that any criminal investigation should be conducted independent of any sort of political interference and that people should be treated the same way before the law regardless of their political influence, regardless of their political party, regardless of their political stature and regardless of what political figure has endorsed them.

Clinton has worked to downplay the seriousness of the investigations since the earliest days of questions concerning allegations that she maintained the email account in order to obscure shady dealings with foreign nationals to sell them influence in exchange for contributions that would help finance her inevitable bid for the presidency.

However, Clinton has augmented her denial efforts in recent weeks after the release of a damning Inspector General (IG) report that maintains that Clinton did, in fact, break federal law in refusing to “comply with the Department’s policies that were implemented in accordance with the Federal Records Act.“

In essence, the report clarifies that whatever the DOJ decides to do, the evidence shows unambiguously that Clinton had pledged to conduct State Department business in accordance with the department’s policies for protecting sensitive materials and that she failed to do so thousands of times.

In this matter, intent is irrelevant. Even if we accept that it was a supposed mistake, the end result is the same: she violated the law and has continually insisted that she did not, in fact, violate the law. Her actions were not merely violations of the Federal Records Act, but also of the Espionage Act’s 18 USC 793, known by many as the “gross negligence” statute.

See: http://politistick.com/breaking-endorsing-clinton-obama-admin-calls-fbis-email-investigation-criminal/#

There we have Obama defending that investigations should move forward irregardless of politics, and not be swayed by politics, as professionals.

Federal Records Act — this is something that apparently seems to be lost on Democrats and many in MSM.

What are records?

Records include all books, papers, maps, photographs, machine-readable materials, or other documentary materials, regardless of physical form or characteristics, made or received by an agency of the United States Government under Federal law or in connection with the transaction of public business and preserved or appropriate for preservation by that agency or its legitimate successor as evidence of the organization, functions, policies, decisions, procedures, operations, or other activities of the Government or because of the informational value of the data in them (44 U.S.C. 3301).

44 U.S. Code § 3101 – Records management by agency heads; general duties

The head of each Federal agency shall make and preserve records containing adequate and proper documentation of the organization, functions, policies, decisions, procedures, and essential transactions of the agency and designed to furnish the information necessary to protect the legal and financial rights of the Government and of persons directly affected by the agency’s activities.
(Pub. L. 90–620, Oct. 22, 1968, 82 Stat. 1297.)

44 U.S. Code § 3301 – Definition of records

a) Records Defined.—

(1)In general.—As used in this chapter, the term “records”—

(A) includes all recorded information, regardless of form or characteristics, made or received by a Federal agency under Federal law or in connection with the transaction of public business and preserved or appropriate for preservation by that agency or its legitimate successor as evidence of the organization, functions, policies, decisions, procedures, operations, or other activities of the United States Government or because of the informational value of data in them; and
(B) does not include—
(i) library and museum material made or acquired and preserved solely for reference or exhibition purposes; or
(ii) duplicate copies of records preserved only for convenience.

(2)Recorded information defined.—

For purposes of paragraph (1), the term “recorded information” includes all traditional forms of records, regardless of physical form or characteristics, including information created, manipulated, communicated, or stored in digital or electronic form.

Then further guidelines and description. And it does include email and has for years.

18 U.S. Code § 2071 – Concealment, removal, or mutilation generally

(a) Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document, or other thing, filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

(b) Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States. As used in this subsection, the term “office” does not include the office held by any person as a retired officer of the Armed Forces of the United States.

Remember the famous Nixon quote?

People have got to know whether or not their president is a crook.”

And the people do know in Hillary Clinton’s case. She is a crook. Nixon resigned, Hillary Clinton is running for president.

Comey guarded, then flushed the toilet

FBI, DOJ roiled by Comey, Lynch decision to let Clinton slide by on emails, says insider

The decision to let Hillary Clinton off the hook for mishandling classified information has roiled the FBI and Department of Justice, with one person closely involved in the year-long probe telling FoxNews.com that career agents and attorneys on the case unanimously believed the Democratic presidential nominee should have been charged.

The source, who spoke to FoxNews.com on the condition of anonymity, said FBI Director James Comey’s dramatic July 5 announcement that he would not recommend to the Attorney General’s office that the former secretary of state be charged left members of the investigative team dismayed and disgusted. More than 100 FBI agents and analysts worked around the clock with six attorneys from the DOJ’s National Security Division, Counter Espionage Section, to investigate the case.

The FBI investigators all thought, unanimously, that her security clearance should have been yanked. Thanks, Comey — the ballyhooed ambassador of integrity — you torched FBI’s cred too.

Should’ve, would’ve, could’ve… America lost. Snake eyes.
Take your parlor game with you.

There it is, the evidence on Comey’s collaboration with Clintons.

Was Hillary seeking indictment?

Hillary Should Be Indicted

By Bradley A. Blakeman — Friday, 06 May 2016 | Newsmax

It has been said that: “a prosecutor can indict a ham sandwich.” Well, if that is true then the FBI and Justice Department’s criminal investigation into the mishandling of classified materials with regard to Hillary Clinton as secretary of state are feeding from the all-you-can-eat buffet.

The news in the last few months has reported that there are as many as 100 to 150 FBI agents on the case. In addition, it was reported that a key Clinton aide who was responsible for the set up and maintenance of her home brewed private server used exclusively by Hillary for official State Department communications and who previously took the Fifth is now been granted immunity from criminal exposure in exchange for his testimony. It is also being reported that the FBI has broadened its investigation to include possible charges of corruption with regard to “pay to play” with donors to the Clinton Foundation.

A grand jury is made up of average citizens. I am sure they all have emails and are familiar with how they operate. This is not going to be hard for them to understand.

Just a few pertinent questions Hillary needs to answer. Compelling case, I can’t see any other legitimate result. Almost as if she were courting indictment.

We may never know Chattanooga shooter’s motives

SO the Chattanooga shooter investigation seems to be on a real slow train.

Pamela Geller

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The public may never know what motivated a 24-year-old Chattanooga man to kill four Marines and a sailor in an attack on Chattanooga’s U.S. Naval and Marine Reserve Center last July.

Investigators have said Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez was a homegrown violent extremist but have not offered more details about what motivated the attack that began at a military recruiting center and ended when Abdulazeez was shot to death by police who followed him to the reserve center.

“Sometimes the way we investigate requires us to keep information secret. That’s a good thing. We don’t want to smear people,” [FBI Director James Comey] said.

Sometimes it’s better if people not know, I take it. Wouldn’t want to damage or smear anyone. Nope. Isn’t he the same guy running the Hillary servergate investigation?

No smearing … unless it is the American people, then by all means go ahead.

Valerie Jarrett: way too close for comfort

FBI Files Document Communism in Valerie Jarrett’s Family

JUNE 22, 2015 | Judicial Watch

Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) files obtained by Judicial Watch reveal that the dad, maternal grandpa and father-in-law of President Obama’s trusted senior advisor, Valerie Jarrett, were hardcore Communists under investigation by the U.S. government.

Jarrett’s dad, pathologist and geneticist Dr. James Bowman, had extensive ties to Communist associations and individuals, his lengthy FBI file shows. In 1950 Bowman was in communication with a paid Soviet agent named Alfred Stern, who fled to Prague after getting charged with espionage. Bowman was also a member of a Communist-sympathizing group called the Association of Internes and Medical Students. After his discharge from the Army Medical Corps in 1955, Bowman moved to Iran to work, the FBI records show.

According to Bowman’s government file the Association of Internes and Medical Students is an organization that “has long been a faithful follower of the Communist Party line” and engages in un-American activities. Bowman was born in Washington D.C. and had deep ties to Chicago, where he often collaborated with fellow Communists. JW also obtained documents on Bowman from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) showing that the FBI was brought into investigate him for his membership in a group that “follows the communist party line.” The Jarrett family Communist ties also include a business partnership between Jarrett’s maternal grandpa, Robert Rochon Taylor, and Stern, the Soviet agent associated with her dad.
Jarrett’s father-in-law, Vernon Jarrett, was also another big-time Chicago Communist, according to separate FBI files obtained by JW as part of a probe into the Jarrett family’s Communist ties. For a period of time Vernon Jarrett appeared on the FBI’s Security Index and was considered a potential Communist saboteur who was to be arrested in the event of a conflict with the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR). His FBI file reveals that he was assigned to write propaganda for a Communist Party front group in Chicago that would “disseminate the Communist Party line among…the middle class.”
It’s been well documented that Valerie Jarrett, a Chicago lawyer and longtime Obama confidant, is a liberal extremist who wields tremendous power in the White House. Faithful to her roots, she still has connections to many Communist and extremist groups, including the Muslim Brotherhood. Jarrett and her family also had strong ties to Frank Marshal Davis, a big Obama mentor and Communist Party member with an extensive FBI file.
JW has exposed Valerie Jarrett’s many transgressions over the years, including her role in covering up a scandalous gun-running operation carried out by the Department of Justice (DOJ). Last fall JW obtained public records that show Jarrett was a key player in the effort to cover up that Attorney General Eric Holder lied to Congress about the Fast and Furious, a disastrous experiment in which the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives (ATF) allowed guns from the U.S. to be smuggled into Mexico so they could eventually be traced to drug cartels. Instead, federal law enforcement officers lost track of hundreds of weapons which have been used in an unknown number of crimes, including the murder of a U.S. Border Patrol agent in Arizona.
In 2008 JW got documents linking Valerie Jarrett, who also served as co-chairman of Obama’s presidential transition team, to a series of real estate scandals, including several housing projects operated by convicted felon and Obama fundraiser/friend Antoin “Tony” Rezko. According to the documents obtained from the Illinois Secretary of State, Valerie Jarrett served as a board member for several organizations that provided funding and support for Chicago slum projects operated by Rezko.
http://www.judicialwatch.org/blog/2015/06/communism-in-jarretts-family/

What’s the real surprise here? Right, there is none. It’s what we knew except maybe the extent of those ties. Then the connection to Frank Marshal Davis. While Davis was in Hawaii, he was very actively connected in communist circles. His files alone show that. What an odd coincidence that Obama turns up in Chicago closely embraced by Jarrett, now joined like glue. Obama’s hierarchy is infested with commie connections.

Now, as all this is being verified and revealed, Obama is out railing against his favorite whipping posts: Christianity, racism, guns, and bigotry of others. You guessed it, next he’ll be attacking Republican candidates to give cover for this news and any of his scandals, including IRS, Benghazi or Obamacare. Or Obama’s latest diversion by dropping the N-word into a conversation. Yet Valerie is right in the middle of any deal we are involved in.  On top of that while Obama is engaged in the biggest negotiation between Iran over nuclear weapons. Coincidences, lots of them.
