Ya a play on MaDDY's Comey, obama administration, and scandal of the century.

Seems from trumps going after dems not one conviction in the 4 years. But we are learning sessions Barr had it appears illegal wiretaps/data on top dems with not one grand jury indictment.

We had Carter page who had prior fisa warrants before he ever worked with Trump that the right wing claimed was somehow major to the right wing. Ya one person in the FBI was found to have juiced up the warrant and he has been convicted. Lets see if the right wing media wants to know who was involved in what appears to be illegal use of the FBI/DOJ to go after dems.

As we know trump said no-one was involved with Russians, we have learned there were secret meeting with Manafort delivering confidential critical election polling to Russian assets that Manafort was charged for lying about it, and trump never sued Manafort for violating his confidentiality agreement, in fact Trump pardoned him saying thank you for getting the russians that critical data to attack the american dems.

Dems have a huge problem, Biden appointed a guy who wants to be on the supreme court as head of DOJ. So he is inclined to not go for all crimes Trump so he can be confirmed by the right wing.

Then we have FBI director appointed by trump not doing a thing on capital attack of Trump involvement. Time to fire him.

FBI director says he’s ‘not aware of any investigation’ against Trump related to Capitol riot


Quote:
FBI director Christopher Wray has said that he’s “not aware” of any investigation into former president Donald Trump related to the 6 January attack on the US Capitol.

Responding to a question by Democratic representative Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas, he said: “I’m not aware of any investigation that specifically goes to that but we have hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of investigations related to 6 January involving lots and lots of different pieces of it and I want to be careful.”

The representative had read out a series of statements made by Mr Trump prior to the attack, asking Mr Wray if they have been reviewed to determine if the former president’s “words and deeds” should be referred to the Justice Department as contributing to the 6 January violence.

Mr Wray, who was appointed by Mr Trump in 2017, appeared at a House Judiciary Committee oversight hearing on Thursday.


Here the DOJ only says they are going to investigate this now, when it was known how long ago inside that department, should have started the investigation 5 months ago.

DOJ inspector general will investigate 2018 seizure of House Democrats' data


Quote:
A day after reports surfaced that prosecutors in former President Donald Trump's Justice Department secretly subpoenaed Apple for data from at least two Democrats who served on the House Intelligence Committee, as well as their aides and family members, in the course of investigating leaks, Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco has referred the matter to the Department of Justice inspector general for investigation, a DOJ official told ABC News.

"The review will examine the Department's compliance with applicable DOJ policies and procedures, and whether any such uses, or the investigations, were based upon improper considerations," the inspector general's office said in a statement. "If circumstances warrant, the OIG will consider other issues that may arise during the review."

A House Intelligence Committee official confirmed to ABC News Thursday that Apple notified roughly a dozen people associated with the committee just last month that the DOJ issued grand jury subpoenas for their information and metadata in February 2018.

Democrats threaten to subpoena Trump officials over secret attempts to obtain lawmakers’ data


Quote:
Senate Democrats have called on former Justice Department officials under Donald Trump to testify to Congress following reports that the top prosecutors seized records from Apple to probe data from House Democrats, their aides and family members.

The inspector general at the US Department of Justice also said he will review the allegations and“whether any such uses, or the investigations, were based upon improper considerations,” Michael Horowitz said in a statement.

Under Trump, the Justice Department reportedly subpoenaed the company for information from accounts belonging to at least two Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee, including prominent Trump impeachment figures Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell.

Records from at least a dozen people were reportedly seized in 2017 and 2018 – including at least one person who was a minor.

“A gross abuse of power. An assault on the separation of powers,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said on Friday.

He called on former Attorneys General William Barr and Jeff Sessions to testify under oath.

“Barr, Sessions, and other officials involved must testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee under oath,” he said. “If they refuse – they are subject to being subpoenaed and compelled to testify.”

Seized House records show just how far Trump admin would go


Quote:
WASHINGTON (AP) — Former President Donald Trump has made no secret of his long list of political enemies. It just wasn't clear until now how far he would go to try to punish them.

Two House Democrats disclosed this week that their smartphone data was secretly obtained by the Trump Justice Department as part of an effort to uncover the source of leaks related to the investigation of Russian-related election interference.

It was a stunning revelation that one branch of government was using its power to gather private information on another, a move that carried echoes of President Richard Nixon during Watergate.

DOJ's 'relentless pursuit' has Andrew McCabe talking about John Durham


Quote:


The wave of investigations stemming from the Justice Department under the Trump administration is "relentless," said a former top FBI official dogged by these inquiries.

One such pursuit is special counsel John Durham's criminal inquiry into the Russia investigation, which fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe brought up as he appeared alongside CNN anchor Pamela Brown on Friday to comment on the revelation that the Trump-era Justice Department seized data from at least two House Intelligence Committee Democrats and reporters as part of a leak investigation — a matter which is now under review by the DOJ inspector general.


Both appeared to be of the same opinion that the Trump administration was abusing law enforcement to target political adversaries, and Brown said she is "bracing" for the next big disclosure to rock the media landscape. She asked, "Who else was targeted? Who are the others?"

In response, McCabe talked about his personal experience, casting himself as being the victim of an unprecedented retaliatory campaign. That's when he mentioned Durham's review.

"It's the relentless pursuit of these cases despite no factual results, right? Despite unproductive investigations. And look, that's been my own experience. I've been under investigation since January of 2017, right? It's one investigation after another. I guess if you count John Durham, then maybe I still am," he said.

"It is the relentless pursuit of retaliation against perceived enemies, and I don't think we've seen anything like that from the Justice Department or any part of this government prior to the Trump administration," McCabe added.



McCabe, who now has a job at CNN, was fired from the FBI in early 2018 and sued the Justice Department for wrongful termination, seeking to regain his job and back pay and claiming that former President Donald Trump was behind a scheme to force him out right before he was set to retire. A federal judge ruled in September that McCabe’s lawsuit should be allowed to move toward discovery, rejecting the Trump administration’s efforts to dismiss the case.

The Justice Department declined to pursue criminal charges against McCabe last year after Inspector General Michael Horowitz released a report in 2018 detailing multiple instances in which McCabe “lacked candor” with former FBI Director James Comey, FBI investigators, and inspector general investigators about his authorization to leak sensitive information to the Wall Street Journal that revealed the existence of an FBI investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

McCabe said in 2019 he was the one who ordered an obstruction of justice inquiry into Trump after the firing of Comey to ensure the Russia investigation would not "vanish in the night without a trace." He also told FBI investigators that former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein sought Comey's advice on appointing a special counsel after playing a role in his firing.

The Russia investigation, which Trump derided as a "witch hunt," is now under review by Durham.

Durham began the review while serving as a U.S. attorney following an appointment by former Attorney General William Barr. Although Durham left his role as U.S. attorney, the Biden administration has let the inquiry continue.



Durham has so far secured only one guilty plea. FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, who has since left the bureau, admitted to Durham in the summer that he falsified a document during the bureau’s efforts to renew its authority under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to wiretap former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page by editing a CIA email in 2017 to state that Page was “not a source." Page denied any wrongdoing and was never charged with a crime. Clinesmith was sentenced to one year of probation and no prison time.

McCabe testified to Congress last year that he was “shocked and disappointed” by the “errors and mistakes” found in these FISA applications and expressed regret about signing off on one of the renewals. As of mid-April, McCabe and Comey were two top FBI officials whom Durham's team had not yet interviewed, according to the New York Times.

MAGA Scandal Explodes: Trump Goes Full Nixon, DOJ Surveilled Political Enemies


Quote:
The New York Times reports the Trump-era DOJ secretly subpoenaed Apple for records on top House Democrats who were investigating him, including Rep. Adam Schiff. Democrats are calling for a full investigation and accountability. New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg and The Nation justice correspondent Elie Mystal join MSNBC’s Ari Melber to discuss the scandal and what happens moving forward.



This is easy... logic says it had to be trump making the order... who else would be suspicious with the power to order such on the White House lawyer. Only trump.

Justice official resigning amid uproar over Dems' subpoena


Quote:
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Justice Department’s top national security official is resigning from his position after revelations that the department under President Donald Trump secretly seized records from Democrats and members of the media.

John Demers, a Trump appointee, will leave by the end of next week, a Justice Department official told The Associated Press on Monday. Demers, who was sworn in a few weeks after the subpoena for the Democrats’ records, is one of the few Trump appointees who has remained in the Biden administration. He had planned for weeks to leave the department by the end of June, a second person familiar with the matter said.

The official and the person could not discuss the matter publicly and spoke to the AP on the condition of anonymity.

Demers' resignation comes amid questions about what he knew about the Justice Department’s efforts to secretly seize the phone data from House Democrats and reporters as part of the aggressive investigations into leaks.

Attorney General Merrick Garland emphasized in a statement Monday that “political or other improper considerations must play no role in any investigative or prosecutorial decisions” and noted the department's inspector general has already launched an investigation.

“Consistent with our commitment to the rule of law,” he said, “we must ensure that full weight is accorded to separation-of-powers concerns moving forward.”

trump asked his whithouse lawyer to put out a lie that he was cleared by the Mueller investigation.

https://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/despite-reality-trump-falsely-claims-don-mcghan-exonerated-him-n1270549?cid=eml_mra_20210614&user_email=e73377d3e40790eecbf6a99203e1476ea2a23c644c2045abd739b8f9e629a73b


Despite reality, Trump falsely claims Don McGahn 'exonerated' him


Quote:
Former White House Counsel Don McGahn was one of the star witnesses in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the Russia scandal. As we've discussed, the Republican lawyer spoke with investigators for dozens of hours, and in the redacted version of Mueller's report, the former White House counsel was cited more than 150 times.

In some of the episodes in which Donald Trump allegedly obstructed justice, the claims of suspected criminal misconduct were based heavily on what McGahn told investigators.

It was against this backdrop that the former White House counsel, following a prolonged legal fight, answered questions on Capitol Hill last week, and a transcript was released to the public this week. McGahn's former client pretended to be delighted.

Trump claimed he was "totally exonerated" by McGahn's testimony, even though the top lawyer detailed the president's improper efforts to get special counsel Robert Mueller fired and undermine his probe. "I have also been totally exonerated in Congress by the testimony of former White House lawyer Don McGahn," Trump wrote in an email message. "It came, it went, and it was a big 'nothing burger.'"

Right off the bat, whenever the former president references the word "exonerated," it's worth pausing to appreciate just how frequently he's used the word to lie. It's effectively a tell: when Trump says "exonerated," he's nearly always referring to a situation in which he hasn't been exonerated at all.

And as it turns out, this is the latest example of the larger phenomenon. According to McGahn's testimony, Trump not only made direct efforts to fire Robert Mueller during the investigation into the Russia, the then-president also pushed the then-White House counsel to issue a false public statement about events that had actually happened.

Trump was spying on Democrats in Congress and his own lawyer—who was the one doing the leaking. Can Iso spell “fascism”? Trump makes Tricky Dick look like a Boy Scout.
