1. I haven't had time yet to digest all of the report, but the few things I have looked for are much more damning than all the tweets I've been reading this afternoon. I think a lot of people are missing the primary thread so to speak.
2. While #Horowitz is saying he found no single smoking gun that proved the #ClintonEmail case was spiked for political reasons. He outlines lots of political bias & even more bad decisions. Out of policy decisions, decisions by people that should have been recused, etc.
3. So what if OIG had actually said “I our opinion this all adds up to prove bias”?
That would be a judgment call, right? And judgment calls are always questioned by someone with different judgment, especially if they are motivated to reach a different conclusion.
4. So now all the Dems go out & sing, see it wasn't political fixing, they just blew the case with bad decisions & incompetence. We've heard them all say it, so they are now on the record that the case was a disaster & incomplete, just not for provable political bias.
5. Now if #Horowitz claimed his judgment found bias, how do you address that? Do you unring that bell on a case tanked for political considerations by restarting the case? Wouldn’t that be open to accusations of political bias too?
6. By focusing on the incompetence of the FBI, we can fix it with a new set of competent investigators making better decisions. A new investigation that is likely already underway. One not tainted by being started because of political bias...
7. Another interesting finding is it looks like none of the central players flipped. Though it looks like they certainly developed selective amnesia. They don’t remember what any of those texts were really about. Yeah, right.

I was wrong on that, I figured Strzok flipped.
8. The report does show though that the OIG’s invgtn was to get all of the actors on the record. Denying stuff that is pretty obvious at times, doubting the veracity of their actions & testimony, but then saying they didn’t volunteer any hard evidence to contradict themselves.
9. But everywhere you look in the meat of the report, they is lots of evidence or leads to evidence that contradict them.
10. One note that jumped out at me is the discussion of Strzok sending FBI info to his personal email. Strzok denied them permission to access his non-work email. Then Strzok searched his own private email &told the OIG there was no work email there.
11. But the texts we've seen document emails, document referring those emails to the prosecutors, & another interesting fact. Strzok claimed no one else had access to his email, but the footnote say a non-FBI family member had access to his email.
12. It seems certain that the OIG was giving them enough rope to hang themselves. Letting them volunteer information rather than compelling it. While quietly handing things off to #Huber & others to seek warrants to prove they lied.
13. Throughout the report the OIG lays out their testimony that conflicts with evidence we have already analyzed. Obvious statements that lack candor to say the least. Be certain those statements did not go unnoted, even if they went unrebutted to get them on the public record.
P.S. Two other advantages getting all the participants to testify to the cover story under oath & on the record. It lulls them into thinking they are going to get away with it. Which will encourage them to take further actions to conceal evidence while your watching them.
If confronted w/ proof up front, they'll all try & shift blame to others in testimony but not volunteer documentary evidence that could hurt them too. The entire case becomes a "he said, she said" between a bunch of liars. Impossible to prove who's lies are most accurate.
But by getting them to falsely testify to the cover story before producing the hard evidence, it changes the game. All of them are now guilty of lacking candor, perjury, & more. When forced to abandon their lies, the prosecutors have leverage as they are then admitting crimes.
Crimes which destroy everyone's carefully constructed cover story. And the subjects now have motivation to produce documentary evidence to save their own skin to prove their new story is true & point the finger at their coconspirators.
Look at the McCabe process, he was interviewed to get him on the record after OIG had the texts & Page saying he authorized leaks. Page was caught, so she offered the texts. The McCabe was already guilty so after he saw the texts, he tried to create a new story & lied again.
Then he waited until he was fired to offer up documents showing Comey knew about the leaks. Destroying Comey's cover story if McCabe has the goods. Now it is a very different game.

Seems the New Yorker had a panel about Trump Inc. this weekend, including Felix Sater. At one time he was the Democrats prime suspect in Russian collusion, until they realized he was an undercover asset. He worked for FBI, DIA, & CIA! One of Trump's many employee FBI assets.
Buzzfeed did a pretty good article on Sater about 6 months ago. The links in that article are even more valuable as they go to specific operations & documents that show Sater's activity. Like spying on North Korea's nuclear supply chain. buzzfeednews.com/article/anthon…
And that is just the operations the DOJ admits to! All while working for Trump to line up mobsters & Russian spies who kept getting indicted!

Not what I was hoping for but it looks like some more interesting breadcrumbs. More GRU hacking incidents & targets, many related to Olympic doping test facilities & the chemical weapons labs testing samples from UK & Syria. justice.gov/opa/documents-…
Of biggest interest to me is the hacking of Westinghouse Electric, nuclear fuel supplier to Ukraine & other countries. The prosecutors were unwilling to discuss anything not spelled out in the indictment, which means not much. Two main priorities seem likely for the Russians.
Westinghouse was expanding Ukrainian nuclear power capacity. So 1 priority could have been to keep Ukraine dependent on Russian oil & natural gas to allow the Russians to exert leverage over them. So disrupting that relationship or operation may have been a Russian focus.

Josoph Mifsud's lawyer has written a cease & desist letter to @ScottMStedman. In it, Stephan Roh makes a couple of interesting claims. Starting with denying his role as a 'Russian agent' & making clear intent to sue for that false & defamatory allegation. #Spygate
@ScottMStedman Even more interesting is his claim that Joseph Mifsud is a Western intelligence agent & was directed by that agency (believed to be MI6) to introduce @GeorgePapa19 to a Russian. He has also been directed to remain quiet about the incident at this time!
@ScottMStedman @GeorgePapa19 Stedman has a thread about it but believes it is another Russian plot by Stephan Roh. He has no clue, the plot was to frame Pdop for contacts w/ Western intel agents pretending to be Russian agents. Agents were outed by Dems when they found no Russians.

How blind can folks be, this is all you need to know! Rosenstein said all this to McCabe, knowing that someone was already secretly recording the President in the WH. RR was setting up McCabe, & McCabe took the bait writing the memos as blackmail material. cnbc.com/2018/09/21/ros…
Remember what I've said the purpose of the slow roll out is? To get the conspirators on the record under oath telling their lies, reveal a little evidence & force them to change their stories. It then requires them to produce evidence (like McCabe's memos) to back their new lies.
Each round of sunlight, causes another alibi to be destroyed. And so far, the conspirators have been forced to reveal new incriminating evidence first to try & get their spin out first. They can't wait for the declassifications, the unredactions, they have to confess & spin.

ABC claiming the FBI started a Counterintelligence Investigation of @carterwpage in January 2016, also claiming that is when he joined the Trump Campaign. Both conflict with past information. They don't mention that Page provided the bugs to catch the Russian spies.
@carterwpage Steele, on the payroll of Putin's Oligarch Oleg Deripaska, contacted Bruce Ohr, who was providing tips on US DOJ actions against reputed Mobster Oleg Deripaska to Steele. Winer was for many years a FARA registered agent for Russian corporate interests.

Seems everyone in the press knew Peter Strzok was removed from the SC team by 8/16/17.
Seems the @NYT knew that Greg Craig was a focus of the Manafort investigation on 9/7/17. Interesting.
Now this is an interesting string of rumors the press heard. That an agent quit the SC team & filed an affidavit against Andrew Weissman for leaking grand jury info to AP! That meeting, if there was only one, was before the Special Counsel was appointed.
