Bill Barr’s DOJ has just released a report showing that the 29 FISA warrants met the appropriate standards, showing that the Russia investigation wasn’t a hoax or a witch hunt. And this can mean only one thing: there will be multiple investigations into those 29 FISA warrants.
Obamagate is just Benghazi 2.0. So expect a never ending stream of new investigations that go nowhere.
“The Department of Justice has completed its review of the 29 FISA applications that were the subject of preliminary findings by the DOJ Inspector General (OIG) in March 2020. We are pleased that our review of these applications concluded that all contained sufficient basis for probable cause and uncovered only two material errors, neither of which invalidated the authorizations granted by the FISA Court. These findings, together with the more than 40 corrective actions undertaken by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the National Security Division, should instill confidence in the FBI’s use of FISA authorities. We would like to express our appreciation to the OIG for their focus on the Department’s use of its national security authority. We remain committed to improving the FISA process to ensure that we use these tools consistent with the law and our obligations to the FISA Court. The ability to surveil and to investigate using FISA authorities remains critical to confronting current national security threats, including election interference, Chinese espionage and terrorism.”
Libby, Cheney’s former chief of staff, was convicted in 2007 of lying to investigators and obstruction of justice following the 2003 leak of the covert identity of CIA officer Valerie Plame, though no one was ever charged for the leak. President George W. Bush later commuted Libby’s 30-month prison sentence but didn’t issue a pardon despite intense pressure from Cheney.In a statement, Libby thanked Trump, saying his family has “suffered under the weight of a terrible injustice.” He said Trump “recognized this wrong and would not let it persist. For this honorable act, we shall forever be grateful.”
In order to take the ObamaGate nonsenses seriously you have to accept that the president that led chants of lock her up is concerned about rule of law, that the president that insisted that he has the obligation to personally call for investigations on individuals of his choosing is worried about the corruption of the justice system, that the president that asserted that he can use state power to help his reelection if he thinks its in the national interest is now concerned about the corruption of the political process, that the president that asserted he has absolute authority is concerned that Obama overstepped his authority, that that the president that asked Comey for special treatment for Flynn is worried that Comey was not acting ethically in the case of Flynn.
Alternatively you can recognize that Republicans have the long term memory of sleep deprived stoner goldfish and simply do not remember anything that happened a few days ago. The whole Valerie Plame affair may as well have happened during the Peloponnesian War. Scooter? Who’s he?
If you’ve been keeping track this is now the fifth attempt to investigate the prior administration to find all this awful wrong doing they just know happened. Do you remember the election commission that found all those cases of Democratic voter fraud? How can anyone forget the dramatic footage of the Soros busses filled with MS13 members wearing matching Hillary shirts? The Uranium One case. Wow, Hillary got over a million years of jail time for that once they found all that uranium. Then there was investigation of IRS abuses under Obama. Over seven trillion deep state members sent to GITMO over that. Then the Biden investigation. Looks like Hunter Biden is getting a billion years of jail time for being responsible for all the crime that happened in the Ukraine in 2012 to 2016, all of it completely and fully documented on the physical server hidden by Crowd strike at the bottom of a deep ravine outside just outside of Odessa Ukraine.
We’ve been through this again and again. None of this ever turns into a case. This was propaganda sent over twitter to the easily fooled and the proudly disingenuous who entertain this nonsense because it fits the Fox News narrative.
