The Fix Is In - Justice IG Report

Updated on November 23, 2019

Introduction

As much as I hate the idea, I must admit the long awaited IG report will be a white wash of events leading up to the election of Trump in 2016 and the ensuing Russian collusion investigation by Mueller. The writing is on the wall.

- Nov. 2019

It's Charlie Brown All Over Again

Remember the cartoon character Charlie Brown and his friend Lucy? A repeated theme about the football? Lucy would setup the ball for Charlie to kick and at the very last moment, she would pull the ball away and Charlie would fall flat on his back...

This is exactly what is happening with the IG report from our Justice Department. This long awaited report was suppose to expose some of the corruption and unlawful acts performed by high ranking members of the FBI and DOJ in reference to the 2016 presidential election.

Unfortunately, I am beginning to think it will be a white wash of the events. I don't have any inside information but just a feeling that the delay is intentional. It is a way to minimize the effect and the damage. I think there are just people in high places who does not want the truth to come out. It would be too embarrassing and too disruptive to the status quo and too damaging that those in power would want it buried. Just like Jeffrey Epstein, who was found dead in his high security cell, this story will die to protect high profile individuals.

How Could It Not Be?

I guess a better question is why would it be? Why would people in our government expose the dirty laundry? If there was corruption in high places, they would make sure it does not see the light of day. The power that be will make darn sure of it.

Some examples in plain sight...

  • The Hillary email scandal.
  • The Benghazi tragedy.
  • The Financial crisis of 2008, and the Housing bubble.
  • The IRS scandal that hurt conservative groups.
  • The VA debacles that hurt our veterans.

In each of those high profile cases, not a single person was held accountable. Despite multiply hearings and investigations and interviews...no one went to jail or even indicted. There was clear evidence of a crime or violation of laws. Yet, those people responsible was never held accountable. Why?

The answer is simple. Survival of the fittest. Darwin's theory of evolution. The people in our government, the high ranking officials and bureaucrats, are the fittest. Lois Lerner was able to destroy her PC, erase government files plead the 5th and still receive full pension and retire to a comfortable living. She should have been in jail.

The Fish Rot From the Head Down

This popular term is from ancient times. It means the problem starts from the top. The fact we have all these problems in our government is a reflection of the people in charge. "The buck stops here" was coined by President Truman.

In this case, with the Russian collusion investigation into the Trump campaign, the buck stops at President Obama's desk. He and his close inner circle of advisors and staff and his appointments to high positions in the various agencies are collectively responsible for the rot in our government.

Mr. Smith Goes to Washington

Remember the movie Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, where Jimmy Stewart play the leading man...and goes to Washington DC to fix it...

That is Trump in 2016. He is going to try and drain the swamp and root out the deep state.

House of Cards is 99% Real - Bill Clinton

Former president Bill Clinton told Kevin Spacey, the star of House of Cards, a popular Netflix show, that it is more real than fiction.

Summary

I hope I am wrong about this but it is like Charlie Brown all over again. Time and time again, we were told the IG report will be released shortly. That was over a year ago. What is the hold up?

Someone at the DOJ is holding it up. They are editing the draft as we speak. There is a reason it is called the "deep State", they are deeply embedded in our government. These nameless, faceless individuals hold the power. Elected officials come and go every four years. These people are there for the long haul. They will protect their own at the cost of truth and the public they serve.

      Clinton charity gets an A+ rating. Their latest is providing Narcan to America addicts, so they don’t die.

      Hunter Biden followed suit of many. This is the outgrowth of privilege and the caste system in America.

      I notice you don’t mind Ivanka, Jared, Eric, Jr and his new girls friend syphoning off Dads presidency?

      The Kushners made 80 million last year. Not a peep from Biden haters.

      Rnc just bought a ton of jr’s books.

      Lara is paid by them.....and rather than be upset, you all seem proud.

      Btw, what happened to trumps charity?

      Let me guess.....Obama!

      That is because you refuse to consider what is right in front of you. The Clinton Foundation is one of the worst abuses of a tax exempt charity. No wonder the funds dried up after she lost the election.

      Connect the dots...

      In Biden's case, he may not have profited personally but his son Hunter surely did...

      Its actually pretty evenly split

      https://www.businessinsider.com/how-richest-member...

      And you should relish it. It’s Capitalism. Gvt based on making profit.

      And just btw, Hillary released like 20 years of tax returns. Biden released 27......

      Trump is hiding. Yet, you call them corrupt, and Trump “transparent”

      This makes no sense to me.

      Every politician has become richer while in office and much richer leaving. Look to Clinton and Obama and Biden...

      No way. They were on that radar long before, imo. It is Trump’s actions that have caused this, because he’s guilty.

      Not Hillary

      Not Ukraine

      Trump. And his good buddy Vlad. And Manafort.

      And all the republicans that took money, and are now repeating every stupid lie that comes out if his and Hannity’s mouth.

      It’s a concerted effort to get rich while screwing us over. And they're working with an adversary to do it.

      And we’re not alone.

      Look what’s going on in UK. Mirror image.

      I see people say WE are becoming like Ukraine.

      And Trump definitely wants to rule like Vlad. “I do what I want, when I want, and you shut up”

      If there were any decent Repubs, he’d be gone already.

      But there aren’t.

      And they have stolen most of America.

      Wait til Palast’s report comes out.

      How many millions of Americans had their voice removed.

      And then it goes to the Koch bros Supreme Court.....what do you think they will decide? They already stalled the demand for trumps tax returns, even though the law states “they shall be rendered”

      What does shall mean?

      It’s disgusting what money can buy.

      And disgusting how prosperity gospel seems to match the times.

      And it’s disgusting how money is equated with the value of a life.

      The rich get richer and the middle class gets poor.

      And crooks get away with everything because they’ve bought the gvt.

      And Trump is not draining the swamp. He’s a richer version of it (allegedly)

      Comey leaked info to the NYT, which lead to the Mueller investigation into Russian collusion, and cost the tax payer $30 million and 2 years of distraction. Comey should be indicted but it appears he is on the no touch list...

    • lovemychris profile image

      Leslie McCowen

      From what I’ve read, Comey admitted that he “kneecapped” Hillary for the New York field office FBI. Notorious Clinton haters, from wayyyyy back.

      Five thirty eight claims that Comey letter destroyed Clinton.

      Trump is no victim here, he benefitted from the FBI.

      He also benefitted from media coverage during the campaign. They never touched his deep criminality, and brushed over the ones we knew, like the 19 allegations of sexual assault.

      Since he’s been elected, the crimes of Trump are being shown. Gee thanks. Day late, dollar short.

      The media is already reporting that an anonymous source says there is nothing in it except that a low-ranking FBI lawyer altered a document that was somehow related to the Obama Justice Department’s application to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) for a national-security surveillance warrant.

      That’s all, right? Yeah, we now know from an anonymous leak that the FBI has a low level scape goat so they are as white as the driven snow and no one has to actually wait for and read the actual report!

      That’s how they roll.

      I fear your right. When you get down to it though, it doesn't really matter what the IG report says. The Democrats have the greatest weapon ever and that's the media in their pockets. The report could be favorable to Trump and we would never know it because the media will report what they want us to hear. If it's anything favorable to trump it won't be reported and if it's not favorable they will still rewrite the script to what they want us to think is going on. However, this last charade was a little over-the-top and it shows how desperate they've become. I think it woke a lot of people up as to what's really going on, but...I don't know. I think they should replace all current corrupt journalist that report fake news with honest journalist that have integrity. Then indict and put the old ones in jail where they belong. By the way, I wonder if the house ever plans on doing any real work? Work that they were elected to do.

      not with Comey at the FBI. he is the ultimate insider swamp creature. He thought Hillary world win by a landslide and made the calculation to cover his ass. He is as corrupt as they come. He should be charged with leaking to the press while as head of the FBI, he admitted it in his own book. He also put Mueller in their to head the Russian collusion, they are best of buds.

      Jack, the dems have only had the House for only 4 years out of the past 30.

      Republicans had house and senate from 2016-2018.....surely they would have charged her if they could.

      And surely, trump wouldn’t be using a private server linked to the rnc if it was so illegal.

      Just as Bush did, too.

      So who is not doing anything about it? And why?

      I know, do you?

      Because it’s not crime-worthy.

      Because little Miss Ivanka is doing the same thing, only with a personal e mail account.

      And granted, this is after her dad screamed “lock her up” for 2 years.

      Do you have a guess as to why the tea party, who spent her whole time as sec of state going after her, wouldn’t charge her?

      It’s because there is nothing to charge her with. Otherwise, Miss Ivanka would have to be charged, too.

      And in America, right matters.

      leslie, your theory does not hold water because most of the events happened under Obama admin. with a democratic majority of the house and senate for parts of his term...

      I will agree some Republicans are guilty as well, they are part of the swamp...

      Hate to tell you, but all these agencies are under Trump.

      Hillary was investigated by the Tea Party.

      Im reading that Comey admits he “kneecapped” Clinton for the Breitbart club of the FBI.

      The deep state is your own party. And you have the Supreme Court, too.

      Playing victim really doesn’t fly.

      And what will you say when your party lets Trump off?

      I can only imagine.

    • tsadjatko profile image

      6 months ago from now on

      Jack, your intuitions are right on this. Case in point, the IG report on Hillary’s emails proved she lied over and over - nothing was done to her.

      https://www.factcheck.org/2016/05/ig-report-on-cli...

      It doesn’t matter what is in this coming IG report, it could reveal murders were committed and nothing would be done-absolutely nothing. It’s the fox watching the hen house when all is said and done.

      Meanwhile the “fox” has everyone investigating the innocent without an iota of evidence.
