The House Intelligence Panel is preparing a Contempt Resolution against
The FBI and DOJ claiming obstruction after leaks that The FBI had fired
it's top investigator for anti Trump messaging to his mistress.

www.bloomberg.com...



U.S. House Republicans are drafting a contempt of Congress resolution against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Christopher Wray, claiming stonewalling in producing material related to the Russia-Trump probes and other matters.

Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes and other committee Republicans, after considering such action for several weeks, decided to move after media including the New York Times reported Saturday on why a top FBI official assigned to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe of Russia-Trump election collusion had been removed from the investigation.

Republicans, including the president, pointed to the reports as evidence that the entire probe into Russian meddling has been politically motivated.


After months of stonewalling from The FBI about this very matter,
a deadline of Monday morning has been issued. If all information
sought is not turned over to the House Investigation, contempt
charges will move forward immediately, according to this report.

The prepared charge names Rod Rosenstein and Christopher Wray
in the obstruction of documents concerning Andrew Mc Cabe and
a Peter Strzok and his anti Trump and Pro Hillary text messages
he exchanged with his mistress while she was working under
The FBI's McCabe.

In addition it appears Strozk signed off on the FISA warrants
submitted to raid Manafort's home. This could have tainted
the entire Special Counselto such a degree that Mueller's case
is now jeopardized!

This looks serious....Monday is going to be a big news explosion.

I'm so glad this whole investigation is out in the open for people to be distracted over. It won't change anything but the distraction is always nice.

Woah..This circus is getting weird.

It doesn't help that many intel and law enforcement agencies at the federal level already think they're above the law.

Pretty sure this is unprecedented in the history of the FBI.

Some experts think this will have compromised the
Special Counsel investigation and will allow Manafort to
claim this is all a political vendetta.

Crazy times indeed!

I believe you're right.

Generally the FBI does some good. But they have a history of doing some very bad things.

The FBI acting like a political enforcement squad is NOT unheard of.

Only thing that's unprecedented is that someone is actually going to hold their feet to the fire.

Yeah, but what Manafort is in trouble over took place during the Obama administration and in concert with the Podestas, so...

And the only way it could be worse is if the IRS did that.

Oh, wait...

Anti-Trump FBI Agent Could Be Used to Jeopardize Mueller’s Case Against Manafort (and Maybe Others)

lawandcrime.com...

I can't seem to copy from that right at the minute but that Law Journal
lays out the technicalities. This taints the evidence....

So when is some one going to get a felony charge and locked up for a decade like they deserve?

Not being an expert myself, just reading their opinions.

Yeah, what ever happened to Podesta's was he given
a big hall pass by Mueller?

Manafort's evidence was jeopardizing too many on the wrong side of the issue, so they burn the whole thing this way.

That does let Trump off the hook, but it doesn't vindicate him in the eyes of the loony left. So they still get something politically out of the whole dog and pony show?

Last I heard was The Podesta Group had run out of money, closed up shop, and scattered like roaches when the light is turned on.

As far as John, he's still pumping out OpEds for various rags and was somewhat tongue tied, lots of "uhs," when asked about his brother being investigated:

There are a few who have done the deeds that deserve it.

Isn't this always the way it happens? Close but no cigar.

I do wonder what the warrant affidavit signed off (or authorized) by Strozk said though. All I can find is that it was said to be 'broad.'

The FBI have always been a tool for the highest bidder . Just how J Hoover wanted it. It hasn't much changed since his time . They need to be decommissioned.

Oh can't wait until the Trump administration reveals how Obama and his group of crooks used several security and intelligence branches as personal enforcers. Obama appeared way too clean over all these years. I never trusted him. Same goes for Merkel. Word is the Awan brothers and DWS are going to show up in the news on monday or maybe later this week. December is gonna be very interesting.

The american people deserve to know the truth and how they got played by Obama and Hillary. Scandal free my ass.
