New thread on the fallout of the memos and perhaps indication of what may be disclosed in the upcoming IG report.
Another one of those convenient retirement, job changes from exposed players in the expanding exposure of corruption from the Obama contaminated septic pool government agencies?
If you believe he's stepping down solely due to personal reasons, I have a bridge to sell you kompromat about.
David Laufman, who leads the DOJ's counterintelligence division, is leaving the DOJ for “personal reasons,” according to The Washington Post.
In addition to working on the investigation into Clinton’s handling of classified information, Laufman has also worked on the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
On the Clinton investigation, he sat in on interviews with the former secretary of state and several of her aides, including Cheryl Mills, Huma Abedin and Jake Sullivan.
Peter Strzok of all people got annoyed with Laufman for just sitting in on these "big interviews" -- I think Strzok means that he wasn't doing the gruntwork needed to clear Hillary Clinton, but was instead just doing the easy part, talking with Hillary Clinton about grandchildren and Yoga Routines. But I can't be sure.
Meanwhile, new texts seem to indicate that Peter Strzok violated security protocols in using a cell phone in a SCIF -- the whole point of a SCIF being that it's entirely cut off from the digital-cybernetic world. Bringing a cell phone into a SCIF now brings cyberintrusion right into the place built to lock out all cyberintrusion, yet Strzok texted that "We're here in Jims SCIF," which seems likely a reference to Jim Baker, the former FBI General Counsel and a close ally of, get this, James "The Prophet" Comey.
Timeline with reference links.
"...The dossier was never corroborated. There are too many coincidences. The dossier was so pathetic, so thinly sourced that no semi-reputable news outlet would publish it, but somehow it was good enough for the FBI to secure four FISA applications..."
Oh my. It just keeps getting worse for the "wait and see" Dems.
My prediction....in time, this will expose them for what they are and it will demolish the Democratic Party. The only ones left will be the blind sheep followers.
I just hope this initiates a new political party to counterbalance the extremes on both sides.
As the investigations fray the great Russian/Trump meme, all threads seem to link to Mr. Big (obama).
"Another longtime FBI official quits today. According to Fox News Catherine Herridge reporting, FBI Asst. Director Michael Kortan (aka text message “Mike”), the head of the FBI Public Affairs Office, has announced he is retiring.
Mike Kortan was previously exposed by FBI Agent Peter Strozok as having specific information that the investigation into Hillary Clinton was manipulated by the “small group”. “Mike’s” job was to sell the ruse as a valid investigation..."
(great analysis with referencing links from CTH at link)
"...As FBI Director of counterintelligence Bill Priestap holds a very important position and is one of the few people authorized to sign-off on FISA applications to the FISA court.
Stunningly, everyone around Priestap has been removed or resigned from their position; yet Bill Priestap remains.
FBI Director James Comey was fired; Asst. FBI Director Andrew “Andy” McCabe was removed; FBI Chief Legal Counsel James Baker was removed; FBI Attorney Lisa Page was removed; FBI Agent Peter Strzok was demoted; FBI Special Agent, Chief of Staff, James Rybicki resigned. Yet somehow, even through today, FBI Director of Counterintelligence Bill Priestap remains..."

Nunes Seeks Transcripts of FISA Hearing on Carter Page Warrant —Ace
I'm sure this'll be another case where our Firefighter Media says "Don't you dare demand information from the government!!!"
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., is seeking transcripts from a top secret national security court regarding the FBI and Justice Department's application for a surveillance warrant for a Trump campaign aide, according to a congressional letter obtained by Fox News.
Writing to Rosemary M. Collyer, the presiding judge at the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, Nunes asked for transcripts of "any relevant FISC hearings associated with the initial FISA application or subsequent renewals related to electronic surveillance of Carter Page."
Meanwhile, Nunes says he'll soon be releasing a second memo -- this one about the State Department's complicity in these abuses.
Nunes's next memo, meanwhile, will focus on alleged abuses at the Department of State and a second Trump-Russia dossier compiled by Cody Shearer, a controversial political activist with close ties to the Clinton family, according to a Republican familiar with the details.
Why would Sheaer try to foist this fiction on the State Department instead of sending it straight to the FBI?
Indeed, why didn't Hillary Clinton just pass it to the FBI herself? After all, she paid for it.
All of this walking in circles and crabwise movement indicates deception -- if you have nothing to hide, you just do things in the most direct and simple way possible.
Here everyone is attempting to feed these documents to flunkies in the State Department to get passed to the FBI.
It's almost as if Hillary Clinton, and Shearer, and Blumenthal, and Steele, and Fusion, are all trying to hide their hands from the FBI here.
