Question Day of Reckoning At Hand?

It may be fast approaching.


Quote:
As we reported on Thursday, a long-awaited report by the Department of Justice's internal watchdog into the Hillary Clinton email investigation has moved into its final phase, as the DOJ notified multiple subjects mentioned in the document that they can privately review it by week's end, and will have a "few days" to craft any response to criticism contained within the report, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Those invited to review the report were told they would have to sign nondisclosure agreements in order to read it, people familiar with the matter said. They are expected to have a few days to craft a response to any criticism in the report, which will then be incorporated in the final version to be released in coming weeks. -WSJ
Now, journalist Paul Sperry reports that "IG Horowitz has found "reasonable grounds" for believing there has been a violation of federal criminal law in the FBI/DOJ's handling of the Clinton investigation/s and has referred his findings of potential criminal misconduct to Huber for possible criminal prosecution."

More from the OP.

Quote:
In January, we profiled Michael Horowitz based on thorough research assembled by independent investigators. For those who think the upcoming OIG report is just going to be "all part of the show" - take pause; there's a good chance this is an actual happening, so you may want to read up on the man whose year-long investigation may lead to criminal charges against those involved.

In short - Horowitz went to war with the Obama Administration to restore the OIG's powers - and didn't get them back until Trump took office.

Horowitz was appointed head of the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) in April, 2012 - after the Obama administration hobbled the OIG's investigative powers in 2011 during the "Fast and Furious" scandal. The changes forced the various Inspectors General for all government agencies to request information while conducting investigations, as opposed to the authority to demand it. This allowed Holder (and other agency heads) to bog down OIG requests in bureaucratic red tape, and in some cases, deny them outright.

What did Horowitz do? As one twitter commentators puts it, he went to war...

In March of 2015, Horowitz's office prepared a report for Congress titled Open and Unimplemented IG Recommendations. It laid the Obama Admin bare before Congress - illustrating among other things how the administration was wasting tens-of-billions of dollars by ignoring the recommendations made by the OIG.

Yes, because all of your past Clinton conspiracy claims have turned out so well for you. Pretty desperate attempt at trying to deflect attention away from the corrupt asshole in the White House by playing your same old tune. Pathetic.

I'm no fan of Zero Hedge, but the poor English construction and weighed opinion of your quote leads me to believe that the author of said quote is somewhat batshit himself.

RNG likes to point out biased sources from the "right", but when was the last time if ever, had he did the same for "left" sources? Particularly with Skews constantly post completely biased stuff from Daily Kos at a never ending pace?

To be fair, one must question all sources and be honest with how their political views tend to lean. I have yet to see RNG and other "liberals" and here ever challenge fake news that aligns with their political views. True, it works the other way around also, but dismissing the source is a favorite tactic of TDS members here, much more than the other side.
Thanks from caconservative and Spumante

I gotta disagree that the TDS members use this tactic more frequently. Good grief, every news outlet that isn't FOX is fake news to a ODS/Trump member, according to their avatar, and they are all out to get him as they drive the US into being a socialist/communist state.

Here's what I do when I see an article from the DK or The Blaze. I do a search and see who else is reporting the same. If no one else is reporting the story, it might be that they have broken a story, but the odds are quite slim.

Next, I look at the history of any news outlet, as well as those who operate it.

Next, I look at the history of the people quoted in the article.

Zero Hedge is a joke. The DK has a better record. The Blaze has a better record.
