Russiagate, While I Wait

. . . for the coffee to cool a bit. So, you may remember that sometime before the Horowitz Report broke, both the prosecution and the defense in the Flynn case asked for and were granted a stay from sentencing pending the release of the Horowitz material. Yesterday, Flynn judge crushes hopes for tossing guilty plea, says ex-national security adviser waived constitutional rights, and I guess once you do that you can never get them back. Ace's JJ Sefton links Da Caller with Clinton-Appointed Hack-in-Black Judge Sets Michael Flynn Sentencing For Jan. 28, Rejects Entrapment Allegations. Sundance, at CTH has the actual ruling at  Judge Sullivan Denies Flynn Motion for Brady Material, Schedules Sentencing for January 28th…., and more analyis at AG Bill Barr Chooses to Protect Rosenstein Over Full Disclosure in Flynn Case…
AG Bill Barr doesn’t need a court order to provide the truth.  Currently the prosecution of Michael Flynn is directly under Bill Barr’s authority.  Heck, the President of the United States has authorized Bill Barr to declassify any/all material that may be needed in the honest search or truth and justice.  And Bill Barr has done absolutely nothing.
WPoo attacks with  Michael Flynn’s sentencing set for Jan. 28 after judge rejects his attacks on FBI, Justice Department.  Holding out hope, Flynn's lawyer Sidney Powell thinks Durham Report May Indict Brennan, Comey, and McCabe.

From Rich Lowry at NR, The Slippery James Comey Gets Nailed "based on his performance with Chris Wallace, it’s safe to doubt the reliability of James Comey’s definition of “vindicated.” EBL, James Comey Interviewed by Chris Wallace 🔥🤯🔥 "Comey comes off as a lying partisan poser, because he is one."

Althouse, "I have complete confidence in Mr. Wray, and I know that the F.B.I. is not a broken institution. It is a professional agency worthy of respect and support. The derision and aspersions are dangerous and unwarranted."
William Webster was director of the F.B.I. from 1978-1987 and director of the C.I.A. from 1987-1991. . . . He is 95 years old.
From Zero Hedge, Can We Impeach The FBI Now?Authored by Peter van Buren via TheAmericanConservative.com,
The release of Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report, which shows that the Democrats, media, and FBI lied about not interfering in an election, will be a historian’s marker for how a decent nation fooled itself into self-harm. Forget about foreigners influencing our elections; it was us.

The Horowitz Report is being played by the media for its conclusion: that the FBI’s intel op run against the Trump campaign was not politically motivated and thus “legal.”
Beth Bauman at Town Hall says Shifty Schiff Tries to Play Dumb: The IG Report Revealed Things We Had No Idea About Two Years Ago. We knew them, you just denied them. Capt. Ed at Hot Air, Schiff: Hey, How Could I Know That The FBI’s FISA Applications Were So Bad? You might have taken your fingers out of your ears and stopped shouting "guilty!" over and over. Margot Cleveland at Da Fed, IG Report Proves Schiff-for-Brains Has Been Lying About Spygate Since the Beginning

Sharyl Attkisson at ET, William Barr Has Suddenly Become Chatty—and He’s Provided Quite an Information Dump, with a list of  "24 points Barr felt the need to make after the release of the Horowitz report. (All of the information is attributed to Barr.)"
1. Don’t expect Durham’s findings to be announced before late spring or summer 2020.

2. The FBI did spy on the Trump campaign. That’s what electronic surveillance is.

3. Regarding the FBI’s actions in surveilling Trump campaign associates, it was a “travesty” and there were “many abuses.”

4. From “day one,” the FBI investigation generated exculpatory information (tending to point to the targets’ innocence) and nothing that corroborated Russia collusion.

5. It’s a “big deal” to use U.S. law enforcement and intelligence resources to investigate the opposing political party, and I cannot think of another recent instance in which this happened. . . .
