In one article it was said that Comey took the recommendations from DOJ as to whether they wanted to prosecute and of course they did not.  So he publicly comes out and says something like, "no reasonable prosecutor would prosecute this case giving Lynn and Obama cover just days after she comes out, when pressured, to proclaim she would follow Comey's recommendation.

Yet publicly it is presented just the opposite .  That Lynn would do whatever Comey recommended.  Was Comey a willing dupe or was he double crossed?

That is really the only question remaining.

The fix was in from the start as we here knew it would be .  It is sad but not surprising how the media lets this slide.  Obama is untouched, Lynn, the Democratic party is allowed to walk.

I admit to being surprised at the amount of evidence of multiple crimes and cover ups and failure to enforce the law is even being made public.  Thank god for the FOIA.  At least the truth is in plain site - even if our controlling government authority and a complicit media will not do anything about it.

The fish rots from the head down. Obama brought Chicago style corruption to the federal government. Just as the IRS was weaponized, the USDOJ and the FBI are corrupted.

The *LEFT* now going after Comey claiming he abused his power.   Taking the cue from Dershowitz ??  asking the question , "do we really want an FBI with this much power?"

My God.   This is just as sick as Hillary knowingly getting a child rapist off and laughing about it:

http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2016/09/james-comey-fbi-accountability-214234

They just gotta to defend their girl with crazy illogical phony legal arguments to the end - now that the race has tightened and they are horrified the email thing is NOT behind her like they expected.

SEND 'EM BACK: DOJ Sends Same Unit to Charlotte That Helped Ferguson, Baltimore Rioters Organize
By David Steinberg September 22, 2016
chat 499 comments

In moments of social unrest featuring violence and crime, one would expect the only proper role of the taxpayer-funded federal government is to quash the disturbance.

However, a unit of progressive attorneys within the Department of Justice has been at the center of every significant riot during the Obama administration, and this unit -- the Community Relations Service, or CRS -- was not at those scenes to protect the safety of all citizens.

In fact, the CRS was caught encouraging the chaos.

Not only did CRS side only with the protesters and not with law enforcement, they actively facilitated the protests, even as they were turning violent.

Additionally, this same unit has a serious fraud and corruption problem.

CRS came under fire this year for internally generated charges of incompetence, out-of-control management, and abuse of taxpayer funds.
Sponsored

The Washington Examiner reports:

    A Justice Department spokesman told the Washington Examiner that staffers from its Community Relations Service will be deploying to Charlotte ...

    The department's Community Relations Service provides conflict resolution specialists across the nation "to promote peaceful resolution of conflicts and tensions," according to the DOJ's website.

    "The Community Relations Service is the department's 'peacemaker' for community conflicts arising from differences of race, color, national origin, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion and disability," the website says.

Despite the reasoning behind CRS's existence, their actions under the Obama administration and the Eric Holder/Loretta Lynch DOJ couldn't have strayed further from the mission.

Rather than "promote peaceful resolution," the CRS instead -- and always -- promotes resolution only in favor of the side fomenting violence.

Reported J. Christian Adams:

    The Justice Department Community Relations Service (CRS) was founded in 1964, originally intended to be an intermediary between contested sides in racially charged disputes. In recent years, however, CRS has been criticized for taking sides in places such as Ferguson, Missouri, Baltimore, and Sanford, Florida. For example:

    -- A report claimed that CRS helped facilitate bus transportation for protesters to attend a rally to protest the Trayvon Martin shooting in Sanford.

    -- In Ferguson, CRS was criticized for appearing to take sides rather than serving as an impartial intermediary. Attorney General Eric Holder traveled to Ferguson after the riots and made statements that reinforced this perceived bias.

The Orlando Sentinel revealed further details of CRS's actions in Florida:

    When civil-rights organizers wanted to demonstrate, these federal workers taught them how to peacefully manage crowds.

    They even arranged a police escort for college students to ensure safe passage for their 40-mile march from Daytona Beach to Sanford to demand justice ...

    "They were there for us," said the Rev. Valarie Houston, pastor of Allen Chapel AME Church, a focal point for the community after the unarmed teen's death. She met the peacekeepers there for the first time during a March 20 town-hall meeting. "We felt protected," she said.

    Houston said the conciliators told her they act as the "eyes and ears of the community" and provided guidance about keeping their message about nonviolence clear.

    ...

    Thomas Battles, the Southern regional director for Community Relations Service, arranged a Thursday meeting between Special Prosecutor Angela Corey and a group of Sanford ministers, where Corey answered questions and shared her testimony of faith.

    The visit came one day after Corey announced her office charged Zimmerman with second-degree murder.

Sponsored

Why was Thomas Battles not organizing a meeting with those opposed to the filing of charges? Or with the majority of Sanford residents, who had preferred an end to the protests? Or with law enforcement?

Perhaps because Battles was ... at the dentist:

    Employees have complained about the personal travel of Thomas Battles. The director of southeastern states for the DOJ, Battles makes in excess of $133,000 in salary and benefits in the Atlanta office of CRS. But DOJ employees have complained that Battles is using federal dollars for personal travel from his office in Atlanta to Miami, his hometown. The DOJ employees have complained that Battles makes taxpayer-funded travel to Miami approximately 24 times a year to visit his family -- and also to attend to personal affairs such as visiting his favorite dentist for teeth cleanings. Regional CRS employees in the Miami office purportedly are not even aware of Battles being in Florida when these taxpayer-funded visits occur.

Or, perhaps Battles was signing a lease for unnecessary prime office space:

    PJ Media has obtained video taken inside Justice Department offices which show empty, unused office space within leased commercial space. The offices are intended for at least twenty federal employees according to DOJ sources -- but only TWO are using them.

    The Justice Department Community Relations Service offices in Dallas are on the 20th floor of the Harwood Center, a luxury downtown high rise. Justice Department sources provided PJ Media with a video taken inside the Dallas DOJ offices which documents the brazen waste of taxpayer dollars.

    The video shows empty offices, boxes stacked on unused desks, jumbo window offices with couches, large conference rooms with television sets running, enormous offices which appear to be unused, stacks of printer boxes, bookshelves filled with VHS tapes, and a kitchen area with seating for four.

    The video shows 58 chairs for use by just two employees working in the office.

In reality, these "civil-rights organizers" and college students aided by CRS included many intent on violence.

The taxpayer-abusing, outrageously mismanaged CRS created a further, dangerous burden on law enforcement and the local community that could have been minimized had CRS carried out its actual mission rather than encourage one side.

They were the "eyes and ears of the community" -- but only of the very small segment of the community that wished to cause a disturbance. The vast majority of Sanford residents -- who preferred to stay inside and to return to their peaceful lives immediately -- were not aided by CRS.

But they did foot their bill.

And now, they're paying for CRS to possibly encourage even more chaos in Charlotte.

DOJ did not prosecute because FBI could not determine "intent".

The law does not require intent.

The FBI asked her no questions relating to intent.

The President said he didn't know about her private email until he learned about it in the press in 2014.  The president was emailing her private server via a pseudonym since 2012.

The fish rots from the head, in this case it was at least a two-headed rotten fish.  Now we know the FBI co-conspired with the political wings of the administration.  Also the IRS and DOJ. 

It is not only political opponents who should be upset about this.

We've all pointed out here, many times, that just with the banks, this is too big to fail. Obama stating that he learned of the servers from the media, but then being shown to have been sending and receiving emails from HRC's private server begs an important point:

What do you do when the entire apple is rotten? Because it clearly is.

Especially since the MSM certainly won't.  What better way to bring it up then with ~ 100 million estimated people watching:

This is why we need to throw all the bums out.  Is this not the best example of corruption all the way up and down the line?

And to think that Nixon was crucified for a few minutes of tape recordings. I don't think there has ever been larger example of corruption know to the public eye in American history.

gave the orders to DOJ and FBI to let Hillary off at all costs:

No accident nothing that might broach this subject was even remotely touched open in debate.  I don't see why Trump should not bring this up that it appears White House was involved with a cover up and that this is another reason why we need to vote for him.  To clean this up.

The Secrets of Cheryl Mills
If there was no evidence of criminal activity, why all the immunity?
By William McGurn
Sept. 26, 2016 7:31 p.m. ET

Why did Cheryl Mills require criminal immunity?

This is the irksome question hanging over the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s home-brew server in the wake of news that Ms. Mills was granted immunity for her laptop’s contents.

Ms. Mills was a top Clinton aide at the State Department who became Mrs. Clinton’s lawyer when she left. She was also a witness, as well as a potential target, in the same FBI investigation into her boss’s emails. The laptop the bureau wanted was one Ms. Mills used in 2014 to sort Clinton emails before deciding which would be turned over to State.

Here’s the problem. There are two ways a witness can get immunity: Either she invokes the Fifth Amendment on the grounds she might incriminate herself, or, worried something on the laptop might expose her to criminal liability, her lawyers reveal what this might be before prosecutors agree to an immunity deal.

As with so much else in this investigation, the way the laptop was handled was out of the ordinary. Normally, immunity is granted for testimony and interviews. The laptop was evidence. Standard practice would have been for the FBI to get a grand-jury subpoena to compel Ms. Mills to produce it.

Andrew McCarthy, a former U.S. attorney, puts it this way: “It’s like telling a bank robbery suspect, ‘If you turn over that bag, I’ll give you immunity as to the contents’—which means if the money you robbed is in there, I can’t use it against you.”

The Mills immunity, which we learned of on Friday, has unfortunately been overwhelmed by the first Trump-Clinton debate. But the week is still young. On Wednesday, Congress will have an opportunity to put the Mills questions to FBI director James Comey when he appears before the House Judiciary Committee.

Back in July, Mr. Comey must have thought he’d settled the issue of Mrs. Clinton’s emails with a grandstanding press conference in which he asserted “no reasonable prosecutor” would bring a case against her based on what the FBI had found. In so doing, he effectively wrested the indictment decision (and any hope for political accountability) from the Justice Department. Plainly even his own agents weren’t buying, given that Mr. Comey later felt the need to issue an internal memo whining that he wasn’t being political.

Now we learn about the multiple immunity deals. Immunity in exchange for information that will help make the case against higher-ups is not unusual. Even so, the Mills deal carries a special stink.

To begin with, Ms. Mills was pretty high up herself. As Mrs. Clinton’s chief of staff, she was in the thick of operations. In 2012, while working at State, she traveled to New York to interview candidates for a top job at the Clinton Foundation.

More disturbing still, not only was Ms. Mills granted immunity for the content on her laptop, she was permitted to act as Mrs. Clinton’s attorney even though she herself was also a witness in the investigation.

This was allowed in part because she told the FBI she knew nothing of Mrs. Clinton’s private server until after she’d left the State Department. But this claim is suspect and contradicted by emails that have since emerged. These include one to Huma Abedin asking, “hrc email coming back—is server ok?”

The special treatment accorded Ms. Mills also reeks on a more fundamental level. As a rule, the Justice Department is aggressive about going after lawyers for any perceived conflict of interest. This would include, for example, a lawyer who wanted to represent different parties in a trial.

By giving Ms. Mills a pass to serve as Mrs. Clinton’s attorney in an investigation in which she was a material witness, Justice allowed her to shield her communications with Mrs. Clinton under attorney-client privilege. Indeed, Ms. Mills invoked that privilege during her own FBI interview.

Imagine Tom Hagen, the mob lawyer played by Robert Duvall in “The Godfather,” discussing with Don Corleone who was to get whacked—and then invoking the lawyer-client relationship to hush it up. Think of it this way and you begin to get the picture.

For those who think the fix was in from the start, Ms. Mills’s presence at Mrs. Clinton’s FBI interview, along with nine other people (not including the two FBI agents) is further evidence of a circus. Judiciary Committee members might do well to ask Mr. Comey why Ms. Mills and so many others were allowed to sit in on that interview.

In short, far from resolving Mrs. Clinton’s email case, the handling of the investigation has provoked questions about integrity of both the FBI and Justice. The big question for Mr. Comey remains this:

You publicly said there was no case for criminal charges. So what did Cheryl Mills need immunity for?

I couldn't agree more.

We all play chess a lot. There are reasons that he may not have attacked her on many items. It's certainly not my preference. Overwhelming force, right off of the top. Having said that, there is a lot to be said for one remaining pawn, when all of the pieces have been captured and the pawn converts.

I hope Mr. Tang knows what the hell he's doing.
