Thanks for posting that. It appears he was surprised by this news just as with the news he was fired. Crappy way to find out if you ask me.

The election rigging officials who abused their powers for the Democrats are trembling, because Congress does have power even if they rarely use it.

That happens when you act holier than thou and act like you have done no wrong. Even Comey has said his ego gets in the way over the years. I think in this case his ego might be to his own detriment.

They arent out of the woods yet either. A Federal appeals court reinstated the lawsuit that was dismissed by the federal court in Florida accusing the DNC of fraud among other charges.

The FEC was also recently sued over Clintons campaign bypassing FEC money rules. Apparently Democrats were giving money raised to state party's, like they are required to do, only to have that money donated back to Clinton within 24 hours, which is illegal under FEC laws.

84 million dollars.

Yeah Comey is already trying to walk back his comments in the book about Trumps appearance. He said in an interview he wish he would have left that section out.

What is happening here?

Supporting non-elected government officials is like watching a second coat of paint dry

This is America...the political divide is comical to the civilized world

All gov employees, campaign officials, and anyone related to 2016 election both
Democrats/Republicans and oh yeah the Russians, Ukrainians, and British

Period!


Anything less is unacceptable!!!

One rule of law for all

Wait, so there have already been 11 investigations into various aspects of Clinton's life (none of which found anything that resulted in a conviction) and now this tiny group of Republicans are screaming blue murder for another one, purely because of... what exactly again?


No the investigations found criminal wrongdoing. Both by Clinton and the the people who "investigated her" who tampered with evidence to botain a different outcome (Yates/Strzok/McCabe).

The referral is in the op. Click and read the 5-6 pages. It lists the people and the referrals agaisnt them.


I have read it. I'd be amazed if it gets anything more than the bureaucratic equivalent of a raspberry. And no, what criminal wrongdoing? If I recall correctly none of the investigations found any sign of any such thing. Not one.
I know that the conservatives in the GOP - indeed, most of the GOP - are demented in their hatred of Hillary Clinton, but this is just ridiculous.
Oh wait, it's all supposed to be an anti-Trump plot, or something. Never mind!

Fox news is the first with a story, no surprise there

No there's no surprise there. Trump probably called it in to Hannity himself.

2 FBI admins were cleared to appear before a congressional committee. However they were pulled at the last minute and could not disclose why. The thinking is they are cooperating witnesses with a grand jury against the people under investigation.


Yeah, Nunes had the go ahead from Rosenstein and a date for Bruce Ohr's interview before the committee and then cancelled after he got further info.

It's safe to say that Nunes was looking forward to that interview and didn't cancel it for some frivilous reason.

Also as mentioned: we know that someone has deposed Bruce Ohr because his comments about Steele having a heavy bias against Trump have been publicly disclosed but without sourcing where that testimony originated.

Please correct me if I am wrong, but aren't letters from congress to DOJ asking for a Criminal Investigation, Prosecution etc. largely PR stunts?





Not really.. Congress has the authority to send referrals for criminal prosecutions



What is a referral?


re·fer·ral

rəˈfərəl/

noun

an act of referring someone or something for consultation, review, or further action.

the directing of a patient to a medical specialist by a primary care physician.

a person whose case has been referred to a specialist doctor or a professional body



Referrals...

That's what all those examples were.

Yes, and then NY followed up on the referral by seeking a warrant and then carrying it out.

I highly recommend reading all the letters and underlying source material no matter which side of the fence you're on.

They are very enlightening and will save some from making statements from ignorance and be of great encouragement to those who have long pined for long overdue justice.

I've not only learned a lot from doing so, I'm actually encouraged for the first time in my life that justice will be done in some of these cases.

I don't think many here even know that a ruling on FISA abuse during the last admin exists and how it relates to the coming charges.

In addition, all of the letters from Congress are full of links and references to documents that are eye-opening as to the extent of evidence that already exists in publically available documents. Including much testimony that was under oath.

That is very good advice!
Having RR recused from this is a interesting twist as well.

There were over 80 abuses with fisa warrants during the ashcroft reign...it led to nothing but fbi agents caught abusing to not be allowed to apply for fisa warrants.

If this were a valid case far more than 11 people would be on board.

Further more it would be people who didn't vote to expand fisa court powers a few months ago.

I believe there is quite a bit of evidence. However it's the same evidence that has existed over the last 17 years post 911. The flood gates of piracy opened and it was a free for all. From Cheney to Clinton.

I find it ironic the people and news are far more concerned about privacy and procedure for the crooks in DC than the American people...

For some reason it's OK when the America people are abused by God forbid it be a politician. Now that's when we should get upset.

P.S. what exactly have these 11 men seen that the doj has not?

If you watch his quiet reaction, he sank about 10 feet.
He was quick to rebound but it still hit him hard.

I think he knows what is coming now, that is what
this book tour is all about. His legal fees will cost
a fortune, more than he will make off his slimy book.

Yeah there is no law. It is a house and senate rule.

None of which prohibit members of congress from asking the DOJ to look into criminal wrong doing discovered by the House or Senate. As the article also correctly points out the ultimate determination is made by the DOJ in terms of accepting the referral or declining it


Except when it ends up in Mr. Comey's hand, he was above all that.

Hopefully this isn't window dressing.
