Lindsey Graham will wait and place his hopes into Deep State crimes surrounding FISA abuse on IG Horowitz’s upcoming report, the same IG with a track record of covering up for the Deep State. All the time Graham ignores multiple crimes in the Obama administration, Hillary’s emails and the Clinton Foundation!
On Sunday Lindsey Graham joined Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures.
As we already reported, Maria called out Lindsey Graham on his broken promises to the American people.
Maria Bartiromo: “My viewers are frustrated. They want some subpoenas. They want to see you do that deep dive into what took place. When can we expect your subpoenaing people and who are you going to get to come down and testify?”
Lindsey then waffled and said he would call in witnesses after the IG Horowitz report is released.
This is a cop-out. Lindsey Graham does not want to look into Deep State crimes or he would!
We reported in May last year that there are many reasons not to trust IG Horowitz. This was before his weak report on Hillary’s emails where no one is yet indicted. There were many reasons not to trust Horowitz at that time.
Horowitz was nominated by President Obama in July 2011 to be Inspector General of the DOJ. Before this he was at Harvard where he was groomed by the likes of individuals like former corrupt US Representative Barney Frank.
Prior to working in private practice, Mr. Horowitz worked in DOJ from 1991 to 2002. In the early 1990s, he worked for former fired FBI Director Comey while the two of them were in the Southern District of New York.
The fact that Horowitz was IG at the DOJ since 2012 under the Obama Administration is concerning. There is no evidence that he ordered an inspection into AG Lynch when it was reported that she met with President Clinton on a tarmac in 2016 and then a week later when Hillary Clinton was given a pass by crooked FBI Director Comey. We don’t know that the IG looked into any number of Obama era crimes and corrupt actions. We don’t know that he looked into the reasons for why the DOJ is delaying emails and documents to Congress or Judicial Watch concerning scandals during the Obama years. The biggest and highest risk areas of the Obama era were never touched or never had any issues identified and reported to the public.
(Subsequent to our January post on Horowitz, many readers commented to suggest that Horowitz had his hand’s tied by Obama’s former AG Holder who changed the rules by allowing government officials to decide which documents to hand over to the IG and his team when requested.)
When crooked Rod Rosenstein was in front of Congress he kept referring to the IG’s pending report into the DOJ and Rosenstein acted as if he knew that IG Horowitz was going to give him and the DOJ a pass.
IG Horowitz stated that he has located all the text messages that the FBI reported as missing but we really don’t know yet whether he has them all and what is in them. We also don’t know what is in his report into DOJ abuse.
In January 2018 Horowitz cancelled his meeting in front of Congress after Congress sent the four page FISA report to the President for release. Did the IG cancel because he wanted to determine what was in the FISA memo so that his investigation’s report was not materially different?
Horowitz delivered a report that was as much a cover up as an investigation into blatant crimes resulting in no indictments.
Via Paul Sperry at Real Clear Investigations:
Lynch had an FBI security detail, and Clinton had a Secret Service detail. Typically, both insist on doing what’s called “advance work,” where they evaluate the security of locations in advance of such meetings, looking for threats, escape routes, critical entry points, weaknesses in security, as well as fire risks and other dangers. But to hear Lynch and Clinton recount the episode, neither of their security teams had advance knowledge of the meeting or were able to prepare for it. It was, they maintained, 100% spontaneous.
Despite the dubious chance-encounter story, Horowitz never checked it out with either security team. Were they really left in the dark? Or was the meeting, in fact, prearranged?
“The OIG considered but decided not to interview the head of Lynch’s FBI security detail,” Horowitz wrote in his report. He also neglected to quiz Clinton’s protective detail. Why? Because requiring them to testify “could impair the protective relationship.”
The two protective details were potentially valuable witnesses for another reason: They may have overheard the conversation on the plane. But Horowitz never bothered to ask them about that.
“We believed it was unlikely that the head of the security detail would have been in a position to be able to overhear the conversation between Lynch and former President Clinton,” Horowitz wrote.
Recall, Judicial Watch obtained emails through a FOIA lawsuit showing the FBI scrambling to cover up the Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting. The emails showed that the FBI was more concerned about who leaked the Clinton-Lynch meeting to a local reporter.
Sperry provided many more examples of less than courageous and honest work by Horowitz –
