Well, well. It seems there may be something to that Pledge of Allegiance afterall…especially when it comes to…” with liberty and justice for all”.
Of course, the Democrats and Clinton won’t let us forget when FBI Director Comey broke protocol and held a press conference prior to the election, and explained why he wasn’t charging Hillary Clinton in connection to her email scandal. We all know Clinton was behind that, just like she was behind Comey’s mild citation of “extreme carelessness” in regards to Clinton and her private email server. Of course, we also know why former President Bill Clinton met with AG Loretta Lynch on the airport tarmac as well. It’s called ‘people with power’ will do anything to keep it.
However, it seems now with a new president soon to be inaugurated, the Justice Department’s Inspector General Michael Horowitz has announced an investigation of the FBI’s actions. Well, all be! Would you look at that?
H/T Daily Mail:
Inspector General Michael Horowitz says the investigation will look at whether department or FBI policies were followed in relation to Comey’s actions in the case, whether the FBI deputy director should have been recused from the investigation, and allegations that department officials improperly disclosed nonpublic information to the Clinton campaign.
His investigation comes in response to requests from both Republicans and Democrats.
Horowitz said it came following ‘requests from numerous Chairmen and Ranking Members of Congressional oversight committees, various organizations, and members of the public,’ according to Politico. Only Republicans chair committees.
The portion of the review pertaining to Comey will review ‘allegations that Department or FBI policies or procedures were not followed in connection with, or in actions leading up to or related to’ Comey’s July press conference, his Oct. 28 letter, and his letter to Congress on November 6, two days before the election.
The recusal issue getting investigated apparently relates to deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, and whether he should have recused himself from the matter.
McCabe’s wife, Jill, was recruited by longtime Clinton pal and Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe to run for the Virginia state Senate at a time when her husband was running the FBI’s Washington field office.
The McAuliffe-controlled Common Good VA PAC gave $450,000 to Jill McCabe’s campaign. Clinton was the speaker at a June fundraiser for the group.
Investigators also will examine whether FBI and Justice Department staff engaged in improper leaking of information.
The matter regarding improper disclosures of non-public information by an assistant AG appears to refer to Assistant Attorney General Peter J. Kadzik.
Kadzik showed up hacked emails posted on WikiLeaks passing inforation to Clinton campaign chair John Podesta.
‘There is a HJC oversight hearing today where the head of our Civil Division will testify. Likely to get questions on State Department emails,’ he told Podesta in one hacked email.
At another point he advised: ‘Another filing in the FOIA case went in last night or will go in this am that indicates it will be awhile (2016) before the State Department posts the emails.’
The release also indicates the IG will probe the FBI’s release of 15-year old information on the investigation into the Bill Clinton pardon of fugitive Marc Rich.
The information got released just days before the election, and got blasted out on a Twitter account to give it wider distribution.
The FBI sent out the 129 pages of information on Rich, who was a fugitive in Switzerland at the time he got the pardon.
Like I said, there may be something to the Pledge of Allegiance afterall…and may there finally be “liberty and justice for ALL.” It’s hard to imagine that our Department of Justice may actually be prosecuting some REAL high crimes that involve Hillary Clinton and her scumbag pals. Scumbags who have gotten away with more injustice than most would ever dream in a lifetime. I can’t wait until the new AG Jeff Sessions is appointed and our country returns to a land of law instead of Obama’s lawlessness, and is once again governed by the Constitution.
