Question: Why did the FBI announce the reopening of Hillary’s email probe and issue its FIRST search warrant when her emails were discovered on Weiner’s laptop?
First, the fact that the FBI conducted an “investigation” involving computer servers, dozens of cell phones (smashed, SIM cards removed), and contradictory witness testimony for 12 months without getting a search warrant already screams “the fix was in”
The question is – if they went a full year with people smashing cell phones, bleaching hard drives, and removing SIM Cards without getting a search warrant, why would they get one 8 days before the election? Suspicious.
Even more suspicious – the search warrant was probably invalid because it didn’t even establish probable cause. So now a warrant was suddenly so necessary they had to bend the rules to get it?…
Why flimsy? Under 4th Amend, search warrants require evidence of (i) probable cause that a CRIME occurred and evidence of said CRIME exists at the location, or (ii) probable cause that illegally possessed contraband (drugs, etc) exists at the location.
Stop & think - Comey publicly exonerated Hillary on July 5th and said she committed no crime. Then in October they find Hillary emails on Weiner’s laptop and he tells an FBI Agent, “so, ya, I need you to submit a search warrant application and argue a crime was committed.”
Imagine being that FBI agent? He now has to draft an affidavit showing probable cause to search for evidence of a crime, 3 months after the FBI Director told everyone no crime was committed.
Pg 5 of PDF is a boilerplate Warrant Application form with a checklist of 4 potential bases for probable cause. “Evidence of a crime” and “contraband, fruits of a crime, or other items illegally possessed” are checked off (can’t remove “crime” from boilerplate form, sadly)
But for (i) a description of the laptop to be searched and (ii) the facts that the application is based on, the FBI Agent refers to “Attachment A”, a supplemental document he drafted.
The custom-drafted Attachment A avoids using the word “crime” a single time.
Specifically, the drafter conveniently synthesized “evidence of a crime” and “contraband, fruits of crime, or other items illegally possessed” from the statute/boilerplate application to “evidence, contraband, fruits, and/or other items illegally possessed..”
Technically, it still says “in violation of” the Espionage Statute…but some might call that a “matter”. (Narrative matters, they tell us, and not calling it a crime is the narrative)
Now the Probable Cause Affidavit, starting on Page 6 of the PDF.…
Par 2 does say it “relates to a criminal investigation”. But that’s the only reference to a crime. Sections 10-17 state statutes, regulations and procedures that could “theoretically” be violated. (But ya know, we’re not saying any were)
Section 19 starts Probable Cause for Search section. This is normally where the attorney/agent describes the crime that was committed & why the search is necessary to prove it.
You know, like this one from a non-Hillary investigation:…
Look at Sections 19 – 27. Zero mention of a crime. Instead, here’s what they do: Secs 19-25 outline the FBI’s email probe and relay the stats of how many emails she had on the server and how many were classified. But no mention of a crime.…
Sec 26 is where the agent explains probable cause. Surely he’ll explain the crime they’re searching for evidence of to justify issuing the warrant.
Nope. What probably cause did they have? Not for a crime, but cause “to believe the laptop contains emails between Clinton & Abedin containing classified info which is owned by the govt.” Not emails “evidencing a crime”. Just “owned by the govt”.
That’s not probable cause, folks. Why? The emails aren’t “contraband”, which is why they don’t even argue that. And the Agent couldn’t say a crime was committed, because they already cleared Hillary.
You can’t establish probably cause without referencing a crime, and this affidavit went out of its way to avoid saying a crime was committed. Having docs owned by the govt isn’t prob cause to search your house.
Perhaps you can concoct a cockamamie new argument for this, but…after a year of no warrants the FBI decides to go out on a limb with a novel theory of probable cause?
Back to the question. Why did Comey & Co. do a 180 and bend rules for a search warrant after a year of not getting one? Because they knew they covered up the fix for Hillary, and the new emails might expose them.
Remember, FBI cases are normally handled by the field office where the crime was committed – NY. But Hillary’s email case was sent to the DC office and labeled “special” – small group tight-lipped agents. Some might call it a #secretsociety…
But now the NY office had a laptop with potentially hundreds of thousands of Hillary emails – including the ones they covered up (showing her “intent”?). Some field agents were calling for Comey to resign. It was spinning out of their control. Panic set in.
Enter @Comey and most likely, Strzok, to conduct rapid damage control.
Step 1: Announce reopening of investigation because field agents smelled a coverup and would have leaked it if he didn’t. Step 2: Cook up a bogus warrant application to get emails & find out if their cover was blown. Step 3: Clear Hillary again before the election.
Luckily for FBI, this was just a matter of paperwork…because they already had the laptop. Amazingly, they reviewed 50,000 emails in 8 days, while today it could take months to go through Strzok’s texts, they say.
Then, surprise surprise, they finished the review and Comey was able to clear her again before the election. All with the help of his first search warrant and Strzok pulling all-nighters to get it done before the election.
Because as long as Hillary won, nobody would find out how they let her off, used her oppo research to spy on Trump, and conducted a sham Russia investigation to sink his campaign and later build a faux case for impeachment.
Little did they know, America had enough of this swamp nonsense even without knowing this was going on, so they elected Donald J. Trump and now the house of cards is crumbling all around them.
UPDATE: I wonder if this is what Strzok and Page were texting about when they said they had to "get their hands on the hard drive or get their hands on the thumb drive"?…

Reminder: One of America's Founding Fathers ran a beer brewery, instigated street fights, & took part in brawls

The only "disqualifying temperament" for Supreme Court is being a Leftist Pansy who rules on emotion, not facts & law

Thread w/ Sam Adams' words of wisdom
"Let us remember that if we suffer tamely a lawless attack upon our liberty, we encourage it, and involve others in our doom."

-Samuel Adams, Founding Father & Beer Enthusiast

Democrats: For Blacks or Just Power?

1. "Blacks are...more likely to be wrongfully convicted than whites...for sexual assault"

Dems now want to lower the standard of proof for sexual assault claims vs men which will disproportionately hurt Black Men…
2. "At any given time, it's estimated that more than 20,000 people in prison are there over false accusations, faulty evidence or something else that went wrong, but could prove their innocence."

*Apparently false accusations DO happen*

3. "Prosecutors call cases like this “misapplied justice” — a more palatable term for arresting, prosecuting and destroying an innocent man's life. And the rate of "misapplied justice" for blacks is exponentially higher than it is for whites."

Democrats = Misapplied Justice

The poem "If" by Rudyard Kipling is thoroughly apropos of this moment, Kavanaugh's performance, & @LindseyGrahamSC


If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you..,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;

Credibility of Swetnik Accusation

1. Think back to your final days in High School. It was finally OVER! I mean it was fun and all, but coordinating house parties around parent vacations, finding booze & SAT's got old. You were finally moving on to the promise land: COLLEGE!
2. No more High School sophomores and juniors tagging along. Your own dorm room with no parents around. And of course, the fabled Epic College Parties.

And aside from growing out of the lame High School Social Scene, you'd be so much more mature, knowledgeable & refined...
3. Now you've been in college a year or two. You definitely partied, but grinding through studies took some work too so it wasn't an endless scene from Animal House. But the combination of living independently, meeting new people & learning new things definitely matured you.

Dems, #MeToo, & Our Sons & Daughters

1. I was talking politics with my wife tonight and she made a great point. It's obviously horrifying thinking about your son growing up in a world where he can be a studious scholar athlete who...
2. ...graduates from Yale College & Yale Law School, remains a virgin until well after college, raises a wonderful family, rises to become an Appeals Court Judge while promoting & helping men & women of all races along the way, and after all that...
3. ...your son's life can still be left in ruin from a single uncorroborated allegation that flies in the face of his sterling reputation built over 30+ years. All because Democrats decided to throw out due process & reverse 1,000 years of civilized progress...

1. Following on the thread below (did AG Lynch approve emergency FISA warrant in June 2016 based on Crowdstrike story?), if you really want to go down the rabbit hole - look at how hard Obama's DOJ fought to keep bulk collection going in 2015, the timing & players
2. On May 7, 2015 a federal Appeals Court ruled that NSA "bulk collection" of data was illegal. And on June 1, 2015 the relevant statute (Sec 215 of Patriot Act) was set to expire. So the Obama DOJ had a decision to make...…
3. Would Obama's DOJ agree with the Appeals Court decision and stop bulk collection, or fight it to keep bulk collection going? You know the answer - they fought it, & argued FISC isn't bound by Appeals Court precedent (somehow this was an open question)…
