The Importance of Matt Whitaker -vs- The Administrative State


[…] In essence, and against the understanding of how these officials manipulated the recusal of AG Jeff Sessions; DAG Rod Rosenstein, FBI Director Christopher Wray, Deputy FBI Director David Bowditch, FBI Chief Legal Counsel Dana Boente, Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the affiliated network of political operatives within the DOJ/FBI; this crew has held free reign to shape everything in the past two years.

That is why there has been ZERO progress.

However, with the resignation of Jeff Sessions and the appointment of Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, the Deep State landscape has shifted.

For the first IG report on Andrew McCabe, and the Second IG report on FBI misconduct and bias, Jeff Sessions was essentially recused from any input or structural oversight because each of the aforementioned IG investigations crossed over into 2016 campaign review and/or the FBI-DOJ counterintelligence operation (Russia).

On this third IG report, looking into FISA abuse, Matt Whitaker has replaced Jeff Sessions.

♦Background: On March 28th, 2018, the DOJ Office of Inspector General Michael Horowitz formerly announced an additional investigation of how the U.S. Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation engaged with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) in matters relating to the FISA Title-1 application filed against U.S. person Carter Page.  However, one part of the OIG notification was generously overlooked by a defensive and IC compliant media:

As part of this examination, the OIG also will review information that was known to the DOJ and the FBI at the time the applications were filed from or about an alleged FBI confidential source. Additionally, the OIG will review the DOJ’s and FBI’s relationship and communications with the alleged source as they relate to the FISC applications.  (pdf link)

Two months later on Monday May 21st, driven by demands and questions from President Trump, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein added a significant DOJ mandate to the Inspector General review.  Rosenstein expanded the original FISA review to include looking at whether officials within the intelligence community may have unlawfully used human intelligence assets to “spy” or “surveil” the Trump campaign:

“The Department has asked the Inspector General to expand the ongoing review of the FISA application process to include determining whether there was any impropriety or political motivation in how the FBI conducted its counterintelligence investigation of persons suspected of involvement with the Russian agents who interfered in the 2016 presidential election.” (link)

If my hunch is correct, this is one of the key background objectives of having AAG Matthew Whitaker in place.  Whitaker removes the ability of current officials from watering-down the IG report; as they did in the previous two releases.

This puts a timeline in place for President Trump to keep Whitaker around and delay any replacement nomination until after the IG report is published. MORE

  1. A plaid suit isn’t as bad as a bow tie. Maybe he could wear a Brazilian jiu jitsu gi. That might be a little intimidating.

  2. “Too many get sucked into the swamp and never come out.” -Mr. Anth Ropy

    So, pumps won’t work. We nee bulldozers!

    The Federal Government needs a purge. A high-power colonic. A grand enema. A great flushing. And a complete makeover. A 100 years of Marxism have not just created a swamp, but a stinking national cesspool of crap.

  3. I could care less what suit he wears….bottom line is Sessions was invisible and worthless….while good people are going to jail for 10 years for minor infractions, Killary is walking around talking about running again…..why isn’t she or her lesbo assistant in jail as we know they broke numerous laws….it sickens me to think about it.

  4. The person who drives the Left the most Mad, that’s who I want.
    The one who when his feet hit the floor in the morning, the Left collectively winces and says: “Oh Shit, he’s up”

  5. Is this the point I wait for “Q” to jump in with a comment and remind me to ‘trust the plan’, “be patient, tens of thousands of sealed subpoenas are about to be delivered”, “Jesus is about to arrive on a white horse and deliver justice to those vile liberals”?

    No. None of that is going to happen. Get over it.

    You want spectacular results? You’re going to have to shoot them yourself. With all the attendant legal repercussions. You’ll be a murderer, and just wrong in the eyes of the law.

    Then again, Jesus may just reach out and love you. I’m agnostic, so I’m not sure about that last part.

    Here’s my take on Q. Who is Q? Is Q one or more individuals in the administration that are leaking cryptic messages to supper loyal supporters? Probably not. Q is the entire movement of super patriots, including 8 Chan and 4 Chan that dig deep for 411. Usually really interesting 411.
    If “Q” were to stopping posting tomorrow the movement would continue.
    I’m not sure what some of you have against that. But I can tell you this, i’ll sure as hell never post a link from Q or 8 chan again here.

  7. Not only do I agree with Brad, but whatever Q is, it is undeniable that it has caused a huge number of citizens that are concerned about where we are headed to investigate on their own, their sources of information. I think Q is awesome, am I frustrated, hell yes, do I think Q screwed me over, hell no! It’s up to us as individuals to accept our sources of information or not to accept them. For now, I look forward to Q posts, just like I do Sundance, BFH, MJA, and all of our other alternative media sources. Of course there are others, but I just named my favorites.

    Well said. Better than I. Another thing. None of these 8chan 4 chan computer nerds gave two shits about politics. They do now and they’re all voting for Trummpy Bear.

  9. MJA

    I would have no problem with that, and hilarity would ensue. Big guys (Lifters) can wear anything and make it look good. Including the Bow Tie.

  10. A bow tie, that is funny. When I come down for dinner and I have my snappy suit and tie on, I expect you to have your hand tied, bow tie on. Not one of those clip on things. You don’t need to feel any pressure, because i don’t have a snappy suit and tie to put on. A bow tie on a big lifter is funny to consider, not that I would say anything.

  11. joe6pak

    Sorry buddy. I’m old. It’s either lifting apparel, an hour a day, or blue jeans with a gun attached, the rest of the day. My comfort zone. LOL

  12. I know who “Q” is. Sometimes we have lunch. He prefers a rueben with spicy brown mustard, but usually eats a meatball hoagy….My therapist thinks that if I keep current on my meds I won’t need to meet him for lunch anymore….I’ll miss his trained ferrets…

  13. Regardless of who ‘Q” is, and all of that-
    sessions is now no longer recused. He should grow a pair and open his mouth about the whole ordeal. I didn’t think I could think less of him, but if he remains mute about what mueller is doing (and everything else that concerns the AG, like elections, etc.), then I guess I do. Here is his golden opportunity to explain himself and what he thinks.

  14. Republicans and Conservatives are not important.
    Just ask any Dem, especially the Dems in FL.
    Whitaker will make no difference.
