Democrats vehemently fought to get an investigation into the allegation of Russian election interference and possibly collusion with the Trump campaign. They hoped and prayed that such an investigation would lead to some charge that could remove Trump from the White House. They forgot about the old saying about being careful what you wish for.
A year ago, Democrats got the main investigation they wanted when former FBI Director Robert Mueller was named as Special Counsel to investigate the allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 election and any possible collusion with members of the Trump campaign.
However, Democrats also ended up with a number of congressional investigations into themselves. Those investigations have revealed a treasure trove of wrong doings by various Democrats from Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, Hillary Clinton, Robert Mueller, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, John Brennan, the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton Foundation. There are more names not mentioned but you get the idea.
These investigations have come back to embarrass Democrats such as learning that the Clinton campaign and the DNC paid millions of dollars for the Steele authored dossier which had direct connections to Russians. We also learned about the Obama administration, Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation being involved in illegal activity in the Uranium One Deal. We learned that Clinton’s campaign manager and his company has direct connections with Russia and oh so much more.
Democrats never wanted any of this information to be discovered and now they are going to have pay the consequences for wanting an investigation.
The latest investigative revelation is coming from the Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz. He spent over a year reviewing the DOJ and FBI investigation into the Hillary Clinton email scandal.
We already knew that fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe oversaw the investigation after his wife had received hundreds of thousands of dollars from Clinton donors for her political campaign. McCabe also helped craft the initial FBI letter that exonerated Hillary of any wrong doing. This exoneration came out during the presidential campaign season.
There were many questions raised about the biased nature of the investigation, which is what led Horowitz to review how the investigation was handled.
Last week, Horowitz announced that he was issuing a preliminary copy of his report to members of Congress but there are stipulations involved in reviewing the report. Anyone reviewing it has to sign a nondisclosure statement first.
Someone must not have abided by the nondisclosure statement as Paul Sperry, a conservative journalist, tweeted:
“BREAKING: IG Horowitz has found ‘reasonable grounds’ for believing there has been a violation of federal criminal law in the FBI/DOJ’s handling of the Clinton investigation/s and has referred his findings of potential criminal misconduct to Huber for possible criminal prosecution”
If Sperry is accurate and this is the recommendation from Horowitz, this points directly at James Comey and Andrew McCabe, which should totally undermine any credibility Comey had and bring into question anything he told Mueller and his investigation. I seriously doubt if Comey or McCabe are getting much sleep these days as their future may include a prison cell.
