Statement by A G Barr

Statement by Attorney General William P. Barr on the Inspector General’s Report of the Review of Four FISA Applications and Other Aspects of the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane Investigation

Attorney General William P. Barr issued the following statement:

“Nothing is more important than the credibility and integrity of the FBI and the Department of Justice.  That is why we must hold our investigators and prosecutors to the highest ethical and professional standards.  The Inspector General’s investigation has provided critical transparency and accountability, and his work is a credit to the Department of Justice.  I would like to thank the Inspector General and his team.

The Inspector General’s report now makes clear that the FBI launched an intrusive investigation of a U.S. presidential campaign on the thinnest of suspicions that, in my view, were insufficient to justify the steps taken.  It is also clear that, from its inception, the evidence produced by the investigation was consistently exculpatory.  Nevertheless, the investigation and surveillance was pushed forward for the duration of the campaign and deep into President Trump’s administration.  In the rush to obtain and maintain FISA surveillance of Trump campaign associates, FBI officials misled the FISA court, omitted critical exculpatory facts from their filings, and suppressed or ignored information negating the reliability of their principal source.  The Inspector General found the explanations given for these actions unsatisfactory.  While most of the misconduct identified by the Inspector General was committed in 2016 and 2017 by a small group of now-former FBI officials, the malfeasance and misfeasance detailed in the Inspector General’s report reflects a clear abuse of the FISA process.

FISA is an essential tool for the protection of the safety of the American people.  The Department of Justice and the FBI are committed to taking whatever steps are necessary to rectify the abuses that occurred and to ensure the integrity of the FISA process going forward.

No one is more dismayed about the handling of these FISA applications than Director Wray.  I have full confidence in Director Wray and his team at the FBI, as well as the thousands of dedicated line agents who work tirelessly to protect our country.  I thank the Director for the comprehensive set of proposed reforms he is announcing today, and I look forward to working with him to implement these and any other appropriate measures.

With respect to DOJ personnel discussed in the report, the Department will follow all appropriate processes and procedures, including as to any potential disciplinary action.”

OAN Investigative Trip to Ukraine uncovers something huge — ‘Nox & Friends

One America’s Chanel Rion has been tracking down Ukrainian witnesses as part of an exclusive OAN investigative series, which dismantles the baseless Adam Schiff impeachment hoax.

The full videos require a paid subscription to access.

Part One – She spoke with Ukrainian former Prosecutor General Yuriy Lutsenko, who said Yovanovitch perjured herself before Congress.

Part Two – Viktor Shokin: Biden was outraged we seized Burisma assets – Former Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin spoke to OAN about Joe Biden’s direct role in getting his office to stop investigating his son Hunter.

OAN’s Chanel Rion gives debriefing on Ukraine trip – This will be a three or four part series that should be posted across the U.S. but it is doubtful what they found will ever reach the light of public review if the MSM and the Democrats have their way. Debunking Adam Schiff’s case for impeachment .…

20191206_181430Dear Furiends,

This post is purrticipating in The Cat on My Head’s Sunday Selfies Blog Hop – to see what some of our furiends are doing this weekend please, click here and visit our dear furiends, The Kitties Blue, as well as other Sunday hoppers.

Katsu and I are purrticipating in Christmas decorating… and 20191206_181609we’re trying to figure out how to share our new gingerbread house… FYI, it is actually cardboard painted to look like gingerbread…. it was a black Friday acquisition. In addition to our fine new piece of real estate, our chef purchased some VERY SUSPECT Snorlax pajamas (a Snorlax is a Pokemon) for Master Munchkin… We cats what to think when he was kind enough to model them for us. When he 20191206_181841came out wearing them, Katsu and I were so startled that we ran….Then I figured out they have felt claws and I’ve been trying to get a back scratching ever since.

Our chef said, “Of all the weird stuff the kids wear and costumes… I am not sure why these pjs made them run at first.” Hello!!! Do you see that green thing I’m sniffing?!? Wouldn’t you run if you saw your bestest tummy tickler turned into that?!?

& now from our dear freezing furiend, who lives in Ohio:IMG_20191108_105620

How cold is it where all of you live? I’m still trying to figure out why it suddenly went to freezing after going in and out to the porch whenever I wanted to. Now, I’m bothering Ma all the time, begging to let me out. She does, but closes the door in the kitchen to the porch. There I sit watching the squirrels and birdies five minutes or less, then scratch the door so she’ll open it. I run in, eat a bite, run around, then beg again. She says I’m driving her crazy but she loves me. Now the neighbor out there is sawing trees. ‘Maaaa! Let me out again so I can make sure he’s doing a good job!’ Here I go again. Hope you are all warmer than we are!

Love, Angel Kitty
