Mollie Hemingway and Andrew C. McCarthy Pummel Trey Gowdy's Ignorance and Blind Allegiance to College Guys With Guns;
David French, Get This, Gives Gowdy a Blowjob

— Open Blogger

These are worth reading in full and I can only quote a little from each.

I'm giving you the sizzle, mostly, but you'll have to go to the articles for the steak. That is, Hemingway and McCarthy give chapter-and-verse citations to prove (not support-- prove) their conclusions.

But I can't quote all that. Trust me, you should read it all.

MZ Hemingway: How can Trey Gowdy spout off so categorically when he didn't even read the reports?

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) recently suggested the FBI did nothing wrong when it used at least one government informant to secretly collect information on Donald Trump's presidential campaign. Public reports indicate, however, that Gowdy never even reviewed the relevant documents on the matter subpoenaed by Congress. In fact, a spokeswoman for Gowdy told The Federalist that the congressman doesn't even know what documents and records were subpoenaed by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI).

...

Although Gowdy intimated that the information he received in a briefing last week made clear the FBI did nothing wrong, numerous reports from multiple news outlets indicated that the lawmakers DOJ invited to the briefing were not given access to all of the records HPSCI subpoenaed. Other comments Gowdy made during recent television interviews raise questions about how firm a grasp he has on the investigation and concerns the investigation has raised.

...


"Sources tell me Gowdy and Nunes did not receive the documents they requested during the noon meeting at DOJ, despite pleas for openness from [White House chief of staff John] Kelly and [Trump attorney Emmett] Flood," CNN reporter Sarah Westwood wrote.

...

When asked by The Federalist whether Gowdy had seen all the documents Congress requested, a spokeswoman for Gowdy repeatedly declined to say what, if any, subpoenaed records Gowdy had reviewed during the roughly hour-long briefing.

Activists and journalists were thrilled with Gowdy's comments exonerating the FBI, claiming they "debunked" any concerns that people have about FBI behavior. CNN’s Manu Raju claimed, without providing evidence, that Gowdy had "seen the intel."


...

Gowdy's curious exoneration of the FBI caught many by surprise given his work on the previous HPSCI report that found widespread abuse of surveillance procedures targeting the Trump campaign.

...

During the interview, however, Gowdy seemed confused or mistaken about simple facts related to the investigation.

She then gets into Gowdy's confusion or ignorance or tactical ignorance over what kind of investigation this actually is.

McCarthy also gets into that as well.

Yes, the FBI Was Investigating the Trump Campaign When It Spied

By ANDREW C. MCCARTHY

May 30, 2018 9:55 PM

Trey Gowdy and Marco Rubio evidently paid little attention to testimony before their own committees on how Obama officials made the Trump campaign the subject of a counterintelligence investigation.

Well, well, well.

The bipartisan Beltway establishment has apparently had its fill of this "Trump colluded with Russia" narrative -- the same narrative the same establishment has lustily peddled for nearly two years. The Obama administration recklessly chose to deploy the government's awesome counterintelligence powers to investigate -- and, more to the point, to smear -- its political opposition as a Kremlin confederate. Now that this ploy has blown up on the Justice Department and the FBI, these agencies -- the ones that went out of their way, and outside their guidelines, to announce to the world that the Trump campaign was under investigation --- want you to know the president and his campaign were not investigated at all, no siree.

What could possibly have made you imagine such a thing?

And so, to douse the controversy with cold water, dutifully stepping forward in fine bipartisan fettle are the Obama administration's top intelligence official and two influential Capitol Hill Republicans who evidently pay little attention to major testimony before their own committees.

Former National Intelligence director James Clapper was first to the scene of the blaze. Clapper concedes that, well, yes, the FBI did run an informant --- "spy" is such an icky word -- at Trump campaign officials; but you must understand that this was merely to investigate Russia. Cross his heart, it had nothing to do with the Trump campaign. No, no, no. Indeed, they only used an informant because --bet you didn't know this --doing so is the most benign, least intrusive mode of conducting an investigation.

...

I'll leave it to the reader to imagine the Democrats’ response if, say, the Bush administration had run a covert intelligence operative against Obama 2008 campaign officials, including the campaign’s co-chairman....

Sure!

Then there are Senator Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) and Representative Trey Gowdy (R., S.C.), General Clapper's fellow fire extinguishers.

Rubio is a member in good standing of that Washington pillar, the Senate Intelligence Committee, which has had about as much interest in scrutinizing the highly irregular actions of intelligence and law-enforcement officials in the Clinton and Russia probes as Gowdy's Benghazi committee had in revisiting Republican ardor for Obama's unprovoked war on Moammar Qaddafi. (That would be: roughly zero interest.)

Rubio told ABC News that he has seen "no evidence" that the FBI was gathering information about the Trump campaign. Rather, agents "were investigating individuals with a history of links to Russia that were concerning." The senator elaborated that "when individuals like that are in the orbit of a major political campaign in America, the FBI, who is in charge of counterintelligence investigations, should look at people like that."

Gee, senator, when you were carefully perusing the evidence of what the FBI was doing, did you ever sneak a peek at what the FBI said it was doing?

May I suggest, for example, the stunning public testimony by then-director James Comey on March 20, 2017, before the House Intelligence Committee -- perhaps Representative Gowdy, who sits on that committee, could lend you the transcript, since he appears not to be using it. Just so we're clear, this is not an obscure scrap of evidence buried within volumes of testimony. It is the testimony that launched the Mueller probe, and that sets (or, better, fails to set) the parameters of that probe -- a flaw the nation has been discussing for a year.

Comey's House testimony was breathtaking, not just because it confirmed the existence of a classified counterintelligence investigation, but because of what the bureau's then-director said about the Trump campaign (my italics):

I have been authorized by the Department of Justice to confirm that the FBI, as part of our counterintelligence mission, is investigating the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election and that includes investigating the nature of any links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government and whether there was any coordination between the campaign and Russia's efforts. . . .

That is an unambiguous declaration that the FBI was investigating the Trump campaign. That is why, for nearly two years, Washington has been entranced by the specter of "Trump collusion with Russia," not "Papadopoulos collusion with Russia."

...

Gowdy's fire truck pulled into Fox News Tuesday night for an interview by Martha MacCallum. An able lawyer, the congressman is suddenly on a mission to protect the Justice Department and the FBI from further criticism. So, when Ms. MacCallum posed the question about the FBI spying on the Trump campaign, Gowdy deftly changed the subject: Rather than address the campaign, he repeatedly insisted that Donald Trump personally was never the "target" of the FBI's investigation. The only "target," Gowdy maintains, was Russia.

...

Second, if Gowdy has been paying attention, he must know that, precisely because the Trump campaign was under investigation, top FBI officials had qualms of conscience over Comey's plan to give Trump a misleading assurance that he personally was not under investigation. If this has slipped Gowdy mind, perhaps Rubio could lend him the transcript of Comey's testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee -- in particular, a section Rubio seems not to remember, either.

A little background. On January 6, 2017, Comey, Clapper, CIA director John Brennan, and NSA chief Michael Rogers visited President-elect Trump in New York to brief him on the Russia investigation. Just one day earlier, at the White House, Comey and then–acting attorney general Sally Yates had met with the political leadership of the Obama administration -- President Obama, Vice President Biden, and national-security adviser Susan Rice -- to discuss withholding information about the Russia investigation from the incoming Trump administration.

...

It is easy to understand why Obama officials needed to discuss withholding information from Trump. They knew that the Trump campaign -- not just some individuals tangentially connected to the campaign -- was the subject of an ongoing FBI counterintelligence probe...

Clearly, the Obama officials did not want Trump to know the full scope of their investigation of his campaign. But just as important, they wanted the investigation -- an "insurance policy" that promised to hamstring Trump’s presidency -- to continue.

So, how to accomplish these objectives? Plainly, the plan called for Comey to put the new president at ease by telling him he was not a suspect. This would not have been a credible assurance if Comey had informed Trump that his campaign had been under investigation for months, suspected of coordinating in Russia's cyber-espionage operation. So, information would be withheld. The intelligence chiefs would tell Trump only about Russia’s espionage, not about the Trump campaign’s suspected "coordination" with the Kremlin. Then, Comey would apprise Trump about only a sliver of the Steele dossier -- just the lurid story about peeing prostitutes, not the dossier’s principal allegations of a traitorous Trump-Russia conspiracy.

As I've previously recounted, this did not sit well with everyone at the FBI. Shortly before he met with Trump, Comey consulted his top FBI advisers about the plan to tell Trump he was not a suspect. There was an objection from one of Comey's top advisers -- we don’t know which one. Comey recounted this disagreement for the Senate Intelligence Committee (my italics):


One of the members of the leadership team had a view that, although it was technically true [that] we did not have a counterintelligence file case open on then-President-elect Trump[,] . . . because we're looking at the potential . . . coordination between the campaign and Russia, because it was . . . President-elect Trump's campaign, this person's view was, inevitably, [Trump’s] behavior, [Trump's] conduct will fall within the scope of that work.

Representative Gowdy and Senator Rubio might want to read that testimony over a few times.

Well, I guess I quoted a lot of that piece. But there's a lot more left behind.

Now, with Hemingway and McCarthy pointing out actual facts that undermine Gowdy's (as well as Rubio's) spin, of course it's time for Deep State Dick-Rider David French to deliver a drooljob to Trey Gowdy and the College Boys With Guns he loves so much.

Trey Gowdy, A Voice of Responsibility and Reason

By DAVID FRENCH

Representative Trey Gowdy (R., S.C.) was a guest on CBS This Morning earlier today, and -- quite frankly --he was exactly the voice of responsibility and reason the GOP needs. The Republican counterattacks on the Russia investigation have grown increasingly frenzied and unhinged, growing from legitimate concerns about FISA applications into "worse-than-Watergate”"presumptions that the entire investigation is nothing but a deep-state effort to reverse a presidential election. The phrase "spygate" has taken on a life of its own, far out of proportion to the known facts.

Gowdy was one of a handful of lawmakers who attended a classified briefing last week about the use of an FBI informant (the "spy") to gather information from individuals in the Trump campaign. Gowdy has thus seen more of the relevant information than any of the talking heads you’ll see discuss the matter on cable news, and (critically) he has reputation for fairness and integrity. That combination makes him a uniquely credible voice.

Note that French doesn't cite -- or give any awareness he even knows about -- the fact that Gowdy didn't actually see the documents in question, nor that Comey has in fact testified that Trump was indeed a subject of the investigation and therefore this spy was targeting Trump, and not Russia. (If they were just worried about Russia -- why not give Trump a warning about attempts to infiltrate his campaign? Because, obviously: the Deep State was looking to arrest Trump.)

French, as usual, has no idea what the fuck he's talking about, but he's quite pompous and righteous in babbling nonsense.

Did you guys see when French attempted to rebut McCarthy's chapter-and-verse article noting that the law does not permit a special counsel for an counterintelligence investigation? It was embarrassing. This lawyer, Constitutionalist, and Man of Principle basically just argued, "I don't want to hear about 'facts' and 'statutes,' Poindexter."

(Can anyone find that exchange? I've searched but have come up empty.)

French seems to think he doesn't need to know the actual facts of the matters he's pontificating about because his Blazing Moral Righteousness pierces spears of light through the darkness of his own ignorance.

French strikes me as the kind of "Christian" who sits awake at night waiting for Jesus to pray to him for guidance.

Read a fucking transcript and open the US Code, dummy.

25 I've been trying to think about why Gowdy and Napolitano and others who were thought to be conservative have been coming out to try and knock these dangerous thoughts done, and all I can come up with is that the Deep State actors are getting so scared that they are now calling up all of their deep-cover agents, the ones like Gowdy who have been pretending to be "conservative" for years, and activating them, burning them and blowing their covers because they game is finally up. It's like Russians finally activating 30 year sleeper agents.

35 Poetry, ace, poetry.  Well said.


French (who - along with most people who have his sort of gig, has always struck me as a lightweight) might also want to check EO 12333, Sec. 2.9, which provides limits on how one uses informants/spies/whatever in relation to entities in the US staffed by mostly US persons.  (I don't see the violation of this as a slam dunk WRT Halper, but I don't know much about how some of the terms and concepts in that EO have been applied since it was issued by Reagan decades ago)


Nice to see McCarthy, perhaps, completing his evolution into clear-eyed and objective observer - he's always been an expert observer.


By the late summer, I expect there might be some watchable TV - I'm thinking McCarthy, Dershowitz, and Mukasey on a panel, discussing the coming trials.  A panel actually worth watching.

63 I've been warning about Trey Gowdy for a while. Generally, he likes to talk a good game and then crap out quietly. Now, he's changed tactics and decided that he wants to crap out on stage, in full view. He's an ass. He always was.

65 In fact, Trump should say that he is putting spies into the campaign staff of Congress because we still have heard that the threat of Russian campaign interference is passed. As long as Robert Mueller's investigation drags on, we have to use spies to protect the elections from foreign interference. The sooner the Mueller investigation is concluded, the sooner the spies will be pulled.

66 25 I've been trying to think about why Gowdy and Napolitano and others who were thought to be conservative have been coming out to try and knock these dangerous thoughts done, and all I can come up with is that the Deep State actors are getting so scared that they are now calling up all of their deep-cover agents, the ones like Gowdy who have been pretending to be "conservative" for years, and activating them, burning them and blowing their covers because they game is finally up. It's like Russians finally activating 30 year sleeper agents.

71 >>>45 Day 6 or 7 of my fast. I'm thinking I may break it this evening with steak and eggs. congrats, but at the 6 or 7 day mark, you have to break the fast slowly with easily-digested food, and steak is the hardest to digest food of them all. Have bone broth, chicken broth, etc. Avacado, etc. See how you feel for a couple of hours. Begin adding in heavier food. Eggs are sort of in the middle and can be added after you've done broths and avocado/leafy greens. I would hold off on steak until you sleep with some lighter food in your stomach. if you break a long fast too hard and too fast, you will get the shits, severe intestinal pain, and I've heard it can also cause even more dire consequences. Your digestive system is currently asleep and it needs to be woken up gently and over time.

108 So, basically, McCarthy referred to Gowdy's McCallum interview as a "feckless punt".

Posted by: Huck Follywood, Vigilance Committee supporter at May 31, 2018 11:45 AM (LISuA)

109 I have read almost every word Andrew C. McCarthy has written on this subject over the past couple years. I consider him to be perhaps the foremost authority on the subject among his peers in the commentariat. To understand how truly scathing this piece by him is, you have to have read his earlier writing in which he was at times rather defensive about the professionalism of the FBI/DOJ folks. He would acknowledge that there were appearances of impropriety with they way they handled the FISA process for example but then go into a slew of reasons why it might have been right and we don't really have enough info to say for sure, etc. Remember, McCarthy once was in a high level position at DOJ if I recall, or a former federal prosecutor, so he had a fondness for the institutions based on his past experience there. But over time McCarthy has gradually grown less forgiving of the institutions and their abettors. He has grown more certain that what was done by Team Obama to the Trump campaign, President-elect Trump, and President Trump, was wrong and dirty. In short he now seems to agree broadly with the idea that Obama Admin and the Deep State have tried to pull off a silent coup on a legitimately elected president. That is an incredible progression of belief by a person who no doubt personally knows and at one time considered as friends many of the principle people involved (Comey, Mueller, McCabe, etc.). This is part of what makes McCarthy such an authority on the subject. He has deep knowledge of the DOJ from having worked there so long and he has personal relationships with many of the principle actors, and yet his belief about what happened has shifted based on the facts and evidence at hand which he lays out coolly and with precision. What makes this piece so remarkable is that for perhaps the first time McCarthy writes in a very scathing, almost mocking tone. It is evident that he has "had it up to here" with the deep state jokers, their lame excuses, and their pathetic defenders. He probably feels some embarrassment at having given them the benefit of the doubt early on. I am almost to the point where I won't even bother discussing the subject with anyone who has not read McCarthy. If they haven't, they are just not well informed.

Of course it should require not just a technical, nominal justification to put spies in a domestic political candidate's campaign - keep in mind we didn't do this when Democrats *actually* collaborated with the Soviets.

So I do expect that Gowdy was given some...additional...reasons to opine as he did. Whether they were sticks (like Roberts) or carrots (like McMullin)

142 What makes this piece so remarkable is that for perhaps the first time McCarthy writes in a very scathing, almost mocking tone. It is evident that he has "had it up to here" with the deep state jokers, their lame excuses, and their pathetic defenders.

153 go slow and take time between small feedings to let your gi system wake up, and make sure you're not hurting yourself.
Good advice.  At the end of WWII, when the camps were being liberated, they fed the inmates, and inadvertantly killed many, because their systems couldn't handle the food.  IIRC, it had something to do with phosphate poisoning, but I'm really not sure. 

In any case, I don't know at what point one must be careful of this effect.  6-7 days is probably not enough, but I wouldn't gamble without doing a little research.

223 Oh and one thing that seems pretty interesting to me about a Trump claiming the FBI inserted a spy into his campaign or at least knew there was one and did nothing and the left claiming they did not. In order to get a FISA warrant on a US citizen you must show proof to the FISC that the US citizen you want the warrant against is under the employ or working for a foreign government. It has nothing to do with criminal actions, just that the relationship exists. If, as the left has been claiming, there was no spy then how did they prove to the FISC that there was?

296 I see your thinking has not changed. Thinking? Boehner? Posted by: pep at May 31, 2018 05:21 PM (LAe3v) I think you need to replace "th" with "d" in that post!

297 I see your thinking has not changed. Thinking? Boehner? Posted by: pep at May 31, 2018 05:21 PM (LAe3v) His name should have been Dick Boehner. Luckily, his parents weren't stupid. Hopefully you all called him that during his years as Senator. I wasn't around then.

Yes - Trump should openly, and very publicly, instruct the DOJ that they are to ensure that these rules about "using informants" and FISA surveillance are applied equally to Democrats in 2018 and then again in 2020 as against whoever he is running against  . . and then, when the caterwauling begins just say: "Just like with me it is is in their best interests and will be done to 'protect them.'  The FBI/ DOJ are filing for a number of FISA warrants as we speak. "

302 It's like the phrase, "...in bed," that you add to every fortune cookie fortune. Your high-minded principles spell success...in bed." Or, Enjoy the good luck a companion brings you...in bed. The left does this to Trump all the time. Placing a spy/spies in your political opponent's campaign is just dandy...if Trump. Using govt. agencies to derail the administration of a duly elected president is good...if Trump. And so on and so on.

303 Huck, Contreras was relieved of duty in the Flynn case (and replaced by one of the best federal judges, in terms of taking no nonsense from the feds - the one who demolished the Ted Stevens case).  Contreras is also on the FISC.  And also a friend of our favorite counter-intelligence hero, Peter Strzok.


No explanation was (or usually is) provided for his replacement in the Flynn case.  But we can guess.

Posted by: rhomboid at May 31, 2018 12:26 PM (QDnY+)

304 >>You're thinking of Contreras? Heck if I know. Maybe JackStraw has an opinion on his culpability. I do recall he didn't recuse himself until [i[after he acted initially on something, but cannot recall what the issue was or how bad it looked. He didn't recuse himself. He was recused. And replaced with a judge who is famous for going after prosecutorial misconduct, Judge Emmet Sullivan. He was recused right after he accepted Flynn's plea deal and before he was sentenced. Since then, Mueller has been ordered to turn over all his evidence to Flynn's lawyers and he has asked for an extension before sentencing is announced. Twice. And now we have FBI agent Joe Pientka emerging as the second agent in the room during Flynn's interview along with Strzok and he has agreed to testify, presumably that the FBI did not think Flynn during his interview.

310 Rush had an interesting take on the Folding Gowdy. Trey is a Prosecutor first and foremost, a young guy, and Trump in the best case scenario is gone by 2025. There's no body else like Trump, so Gowdy will have to deal with the Deep State, who will be back in control. Sad if true. Actually, it is sad now. Trey knew what's going on and folded.

311 I don't trust prosecutors. All they care about is getting convictions.
Are the cops crooked? Who cares.Is the suspect innocent? Who cares.Just get the conviction.

312 'He was recused' Who ordered his recusal? Who gives orders to the FISC judges? Is there a chain of command?

315 'The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.' Thanks--that's interesting. I assume this is a rare event. Roberts must have been disturbed about the circumstances to step in directly.

316 143 Prolly already been said, but if the FBI was really on the lookout for Russkies, wouldn't they have had spies in all the other candidate's campaigns too? Posted by: BackwardsBoy at May 31, 2018 04:52 PM (GdWl+) --------- Very cromulent point. Doesn't the FBI maintain the Russians were trying to help Trump and Bernie?

317 Trey Gowdy has always been one of them, not one of us. He sounds like us when he's in front of a camera, but he ALWAYS ends up supporting the Establishment.

Posted by: Shoey at May 31, 2018 01:01 PM (lOf8d)

318 Screw Gowdy. Glad he is leaving DC. Hope he ends up broke, homeless and in AA like lots of lawyers.

Posted by: Steve and Cold Bear at May 31, 2018 05:34 PM (/qEW2) If you ever figure it out, please explain it to me. They alternate between decrying being "objectified" as "sex objects," and talking about their genitals. Huh?

320 trump should just come out and say, you know what i agree, it was a good thing, in fact, to protect the democratic candidates in 2018 from russian interference we are going to surveil all of them. see how that goes.

321 David French is NOT A REPORTER. He's a legal beagle commentator who lives in bumfuck Tennessee and goes to Washington every 6 months. He's not even worth mentioning here because he's irrelevant. Listen to his shit podcast with his perpetual virgin millennial co host Alexandra desanctis and you'll understand. They should stick to pwning abortionists. Getting sick of his shitting on ACTUAL REPORTERS like Mollie who actually find the fuck out what's going on before writing a story. So sick of hearing about this guy, really Ace, time for a French moratorium. Nobody cares except Bill Kristol and you don't bother responding to that garbage pile anymore either.

Posted by: Dilly at May 31, 2018 05:49 PM (Qw0gV)

322 Gowdy is former (future?) prosecutor. He views the world through those eyes. In his world, you should waive your Constitutional protections and speak to the constabulary without legal representation. Because nobody ever got sent to prison for a process crime...

323 "bumfuck Tennessee" Excuse me, what the fuck is wrong with bumfuck Tennessee? Col. Crockett and some of his boys would like to have words with you.
