The second in a series of highly anticipated DOJ Inspector General’s reports has not been released yet, but we now know a number of things about the finished product because those who have seen it, despite having to sign non-disclosure agreements (NDAs), are leaking like mad and the Mockingbird Media is already, preemptively, trying to control what the narrative will be when it is released.
The first report, finished more than a year after the initial DOJ Inspector General was tasked to investigate a number of allegations, was publicly released in April 2018, titled “A Report of Investigation of Certain Allegations Relating to Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.” That report was 39 pages, and concluded that McCabe had lied on a number of occasions, including under oath, to the FBI and to the Inspector General, and that he also participated into unauthorized leaking of information to the press. The Inspector General Michael Horowitz also sent over a criminal referral to the DOJ against McCabe.
The second report is said to focus on the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private unsecured email server when she was Secretary of State for the Obama administration. The statement by former FBI Director James Comey when he exonerated Clinton, as well as the two subsequent letters by Comey, one telling Congress additional emails had been found and were being investigated, and the final statement days before the 2016 presidential election exonerating Clinton once again, will all be in the second report.
In mid-May the Wall Street Journal reported the second phase release date was close as the IG had finished his investigation, and the subjects within the report had been notified, would have to sign a NDA, then could preview the report and be given a few days to craft a response to the IG’s conclusions, which would be added to the final product.
Let The Leaks Begin: The first of the leaks about the upcoming report were handed to the propaganda arm of the deep state, the Washington Post, where we find out that this next report is nearly 500 pages “criticizing the Justice Department and FBI for their handling of the Clinton email investigation.”
They want people to think that President Trump is attacking all “federal law enforcement,” rather than just the members that we often refer to as the “deep state,” the anti-American crew that actively conspired, lied, and manipulated information, and are the subjects of the IG’s investigation into allegations of misconduct.
While the report is “exhaustive,” to use their words, and will cover issues, including some that have been exposed publicly over the last year, if president Trump reacts to Horowitz’s findings, he is “weaponizing” them and that is what the media wants the public to focus on.
They even use the example of McCabe informing the public after the first IG report was released that the former FBI deputy director had lied, under oath, about disclosures to the press. The President took to Twitter and said “DOJ just issued the McCabe report – which is a total disaster. He LIED! LIED! LIED! McCabe was totally controlled by Comey – McCabe is Comey!! No collusion, all made up by this den of thieves and lowlifes!”
Evidently that is the narrative they plan to run with, to ignore the information in the report and focus on how the president is attacking federal law enforcement if he dares to talk about the findings and the facts, because he is weaponizing them.
The fake news media are already attempting to spin a report that has not even been released yet. They have spent more than a year attempting to downplay the misconduct of senior level federal law enforcement members, former and current. They have attempted to justify and excuse how politicized those same agencies were under the Obama regime, while portraying anyone that called them on it, conspiracy theorists playing partisan politics.
The IG report is about to expose exactly how “rigged” the system was. When that happens, expect us in the Independent Media to weaponize the heck out it against the deep state.
Many people have noted the bizarre number of former Obama Administration DOJ, FBI and Intelligence Community officials who have gone to work within the U.S. media apparatus in order to protect their interests. Former CIA Director John Brennan now working for NBC; former DNI James Clapper now working for CNN; former FBI Chief Legal Counsel James Baker now working for Lawfare blog; former FBI Supervisory Special Agent Josh Campbell now working for CNN; former Obama adviser Ben Rhodes now working for MSNBC…. the list goes on. All with motives that are transparently political. Notably absent is the hiring of any actual journalists.
All of these pre-positioned forces are defensive in nature. All of their collective narrative constructs come from a self-preservation instinct. The U.S. media has imploded onto itself and devolved into an Kafkaesque assembly of political narrative engineers churning out fake news 24/7. What we are now witnessing is something far beyond Pravda and Baghdad Bob. What we now see is an even more severe distortion of media; an alternate reality created as if the Stasi and Tokyo Rose joined forces to take control of U.S. broadcasts.
It will be the job of Independent Media to “weaponize” the truth and get it out there because as the partial list above shows, the Mockingbird Media will be doing everything in their power to distract, spin and excuse the IG’s findings in order to assist the people who are right now engulfed in these scandals.
Recently we have seen the fake news media frantically trying to create false narratives, pushing old news claiming it was new to manufacture extreme outrage against the Trump administration, all in an attempt to preemptively distract the public from what is coming.
When this new IG report comes out, there is going to be an all-out information war; in war the truth can, will, and should be weaponized against the people who are anti-truth and anti-America…Obama and his ridiculous deep state crew.
