Both the FBI and their Justice Department supervisors have been racked with recent scandals, leaving conservatives wondering if anybody in Washington has been “watching the detectives.” Over the weekend, defenders of the “rule of law” got a shockingly nice surprise.
A criminal “grand jury” has already been empaneled. Lurking quietly in the background, “far outside the Beltway,” they may already be sifting through the solid proof of actual crimes, committed by bigwigs in the Barack Obama administration.
According to American Thinker’s Thomas Lifson, “expect heads to explode all over the media, all over the Deep State, and among NeverTrumps” as soon as the report by Inspector General Horowitz hits the street.
It could happen as early as next week. “This is going to make Watergate look like the petty burglary it was.”
If anybody was colluding with Russia, it was Hillary. Hillary Clinton and her campaign paid for the infamous “Trump dossier” which was used to get wiretap warrants under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) for people in President Trump’s campaign.
Inside the FBI, the Hillary Clinton “fan club” of Peter Strozok, Lisa Page, Andrew McCabe, James Comey, Loretta Lynch, and others cleared Hillary of all charges from her improper use of a secret email server and cooked up an “insurance policy” to stop President Trump if he should do the unthinkable and win the election.
Robert Mueller, Rod Rosenstein, and Eric Holder turned a blind eye when Clinton delivered “control over 20 percent of the U.S. domestic uranium supply to a Russian government-owned company” in exchange for $145 million donated to the Clinton Foundation.
Much conservative anger has recently been focused at Attorney General Jeff Sessions. On the surface, his refusal to announce the appointment of a second “Special Counsel” makes it appear that he has been “dragging his feet.”
The people who analyze the daily drama on Capitol Hill say, if you read between the lines, Sessions has been doing just what he should be doing. Conducting the probe and keeping silent about it.
“I have appointed a person outside of Washington,” Sessions asserted. One who spent “many years in the Department of Justice.” That investigator will “look at all the allegations that the House Judiciary Committee members sent to us.”
“Thanks to the criminal referrals from Horowitz, there’s already a Grand Jury seated somewhere, hearing the criminal evidence he/she has carved out from the overwhelming IG evidence as collected.” This verifies that I.G. Horowitz “has been referring criminal matters to the DOJ for some time.”
The House Judiciary Committee “holds the primary statutory oversight” over the DOJ. The committee’s chairman, Bob Goodlatte “is one of the top three people throughout the entirety of Congress with a comprehensive knowledge of the events surrounding the investigations of the FBI and DOJ.”
Last week, Fox journalist Chad Pergram tweeted that the Justice Department inadvertently “confirmed” the grand jury’s existence. Documents subpoenaed by Robert Goodlatte, on behalf of the House Judiciary Committee, required review by the Justice Department before being turned over.
DoJ on Hse Judiciary Cmte's subpoenas: We are individually reviewing the remaining documents to ensure that they do not include grand jury information, information about ongoing law enforcement actions involving American citizens, or privileged attorney-client communications.

The Justice Department has the job of reviewing the subpoena to look for documents that “might conflict with ongoing Grand Jury information (evidence).”
The DOJ stated officially, “we are individually reviewing the remaining documents to ensure that they do not include grand jury information, information about ongoing law enforcement actions involving American citizens, or privileged attorney-client communications.” That means a brand new Grand Jury was impaneled.
Observers point out “if he was talking about Mueller’s grand jury he would have said he was reviewing the documents to ensure no interference with the Special Counsel investigation, as has been said before.”
Additional support comes from the letter that FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s lawyer wrote in response to his client’s sudden termination, scant days before he was due to retire.
“The investigation described in the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) report was cleaved off from the larger investigation of which it was a part, its completion expedited, and the disciplinary process completed in a little over a week,” he wrote.
McCabe and his attorney, Michael Bromwich, were “given limited access to a draft of the OIG report late last month.” They also got a sneak peek at the final version, not yet released.
Rumors are flying around D.C. that some big names in recent headlines have already started singing to the Grand Jury, in hopes of getting a better deal. Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and Bruce Ohr would be in that category, “which would explain why they continue to draw salaries.”
