Colonel Kurt on the IG Report

In his inimitable style, a beatdown from an unapologetic voice of the right.
The bombshells in the IG report could justly be classified as “thermonuclear,” but remember the Comey conference back in July 2016? Its bombshells were thermonuclear too. Integrity Boy laid out an utterly devastating case against Felonia Milhous Von Pansuit, highlighting in damning detail her litany of crimes that would have consigned you, me, or anyone else not in the elite to a long tour in the stony lonesome. And then that Looming Doofus concluded his lengthy summation with, “But never mind.”

The same with the IG report. Yeah, the report demonstrated intense and pervasive political bias. Yeah, at every turn the FBI/DOJ hacks gave unprecedented deference and breaks to Hillary. Yeah, from the get-go they talked about how no one was ever going to be prosecuted. Nah, nothing to see.

It’s like a prosecutor laying out a crushing case to a jury, then saying, “And in conclusion, I’d like you to find the defendant not guilty.”

“No evidence,” concludes the IG report. It’s 500+ pages of evidence.
There's more, if you're inclined.


Paul Sperry:
IG Horowitz revealed in Senate testimony FBI never named a target or even subject in Clinton probe. Not Mills, Abedin, Combetta or Clinton herself. "Nobody was listed as a subject of this investigation at any point in time," adding this was "surprising" for a crim probe
It would be surprising, had it been a criminal probe. For an exercise in one hand washing the other, it's just what you'd expect.

I wonder if the Mueller probe has named any subjects or targets? Wanna bet?


BREAKING: IG Horowitz says 2 of the 3 unnamed FBI agents caught sending anti-Trump text messages are currently on the Robert Mueller probe investigating President Trump
Of course they are.

There are still people who believe in OJ's innocence, and Alger Hiss, or the Rosenbergs' and a hundred others. Unless the person admits it, the true believers will believe. Any offered frayed rope to cling to will suffice. You example of Comey's 2016 report was an excellent one. Conservatives kept blinking in astonishment saying "How are her supporters not seeing this as a problem? It's devastating."

Grim said...

It was clear, even before it came out that the first draft of Comey's statement had said "gross negligence," that "gross negligence" had been replaced with the nearest parallel phrase that didn't actually appear in the statute. Later we learned that Strozk had crossed out the line, because he recognized that it indicted her for multiple felonies.

But to her supporters? "Eh. It's just emails."

E Hines said...

Recall, too, that Mueller hired Strozk and Page, and he only separated them from his pseudo-investigation when their miscreancies became public.

I'm on pins and needles waiting for Horowitz' report on the handling of that "investigation."

To this day, all I've ever gotten out of my sister on Mrs. Clinton is "Oh, I hear they're investigating her for something, but it's all nonsense." She won't even look into what it's about. I hear an echo of this in my own increasing lack of interest in investigating this week's outrage by Scott Pruitt or Trump himself.
