Graham (R-South Carolina) today announced that Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz will testify before his Committee on Wednesday, December 11, 2019. It’s during that hearing that the Inspector General will discuss the findings of his investigation into Department of Justice (DOJ) and the FBI’s conduct during the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant process as it relates to the 2016 presidential election.
Graham and other lawmakers believe that during the politically-motivated FISA court process a bogus, unverified “dossier” from a foreign intelligence agent was used in order to obtain a warrant to spy on a mid-level Trump campaign staffer.
“I appreciate all the hard work by Mr. Horowitz and his team regarding the Carter Page FISA warrant application and the counterintelligence investigation of the Trump campaign,” said Sen. Graham.
“Mr. Horowitz will be appearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee on December 11, where he will deliver a detailed report of what he found regarding his investigation, along with recommendations as to how to make our judicial and investigative systems better. I look forward to hearing from him. He is a good man that has served our nation well,” the former U.S. Navy JAG Officer stated.
The Lies and Deceit Continue
Former President Barack Obama and his Vice President, now a presidential candidate, Joe Biden, continue their whimsical claims that they lorded over a “scandal-free” administration. For the last three years that has been their talking point despite oodles of evidence to the contrary.
Just because the Democratic Party’s water-carrying propagandists in the news media refused to investigate it doesn’t mean that there were no Obama-Biden scandals, of course. Only someone who is oblivious to the truth or is a hardcore Democratic automaton would even dare to make such a mendacious statement.
For example, during one of Obama’s last television interviews, he told the interviewer Bill O’Reilly there were no scandals during his administration. When O-Reilly mentioned the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) investigation that targeted corruption by upper-echelon administrators, Obama said there wasn’t a “smidgen” of corruption within the IRS.
“For someone to claim there were no scandals during arguably the worst presidential administration in modern history, that person would have had to ignore the IRS targeting conservative organizations and leaking confidential information about conservative taxpayers to Democratic activists,” said Joel Tracy Huffman, a former white-color crime investigator.
“There was also the Fast & Furious firearms scandal; the Battle of Benghazi; the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton email scandal; the Iranian pact in which Iran got billions of dollars from the United States for an empty promise that they would cease development of nuclear weapons; the smuggling of weapons from Libya to Islamists in Syria; Obama’s ordering intelligence agents to rewrite reports so that they coincide with his rhetoric; and other criminal and unethical actions.
One of the Obama administration’s biggest emerging scandals was the way in which the former president and vice president abused Ukraine.That includes the 2016 Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
We’ve known for nearly three years that Clinton & Company leaned on Ukrainian officials for dirt on then-GOP presidential candidate and nominee Donald Trump because the news media, in a lapse of their usual dishonesty, told us so in January 2017, just days before Trump’s inauguration.
The Ukrainian government officials tried to help Hillary Clinton and undermine Trump by publicly questioning his fitness for office. They also disseminated documents implicating a top Trump aide in corruption and suggested they were investigating the matter, only to back away after the election. And they helped Clinton’s allies research damaging information on Trump and his advisers, a Politico investigation found.
Biden, behaving as if he was at a local tavern with friends, boasted about the administration’s withholding a $1 billion aid-package from Ukraine unless that country fired a prosecutor looking into corruption involving an energy company that was employing his son, Hunter, for tens of thousands of dollars per month.
Despite being seen and heard on a video bragging and laughing about the actual quid pro quo, the dishonest news media decided to ignore the news story or they claimed President Trump was feeding them misinformation.
