The application shows that the F.B.I. told the court it believed that the person who hired Mr. Steele was looking for dirt to discredit Mr. Trump.
And why is it, pray tell, that the FBI deliberately did NOT tell the court that said person was being financed by "Candidate #2"? One guess only. Out of curiosity, why the burning, all-in effort to be on Team FBI?
This should be obvious, but the fact that prosecutors choose not to bring a charge doesn't mean there's no evidence. It means they didn't think there was *sufficient* evidence. That happens pretty routinely. https://twitter.com/KimStrassel/status/1109955286414974976 …
This should be obvious, but embracing a piece of opposition research financed by the rival presidential campaign as "evidence" was always a bad call. That doesn't happen very routinely, and for good reason.
Gotta love all those Ds and liberal "legal" analysts who immediately complained Barr made a "hasty" 48-hour decision to rule out obstruction. Turns out he's been working on the question for three weeks, ever since Mueller told him he would not make a conclusion.
It is time for the collusion fabulists and collaborators to be held to public and legal scrutiny. https://www.wsj.com/articles/accountability-for-a-dossier-11553555149?shareToken=st4adc252993e64a309d16879bfbb8be8c … via @WSJ
John Brennan has a lot to answer for—going before the American public for months, cloaked with CIA authority and openly suggesting he’s got secret info, and repeatedly turning in performances like this.
"A searing indictment of the FBI." Read @KimStrassel 's great summary of the Mueller Investigation and it's report. https://twitter.com/KimStrassel/status/1109955285198626816 …
Yeah, I mean, it's not like, say, grand juries and federal judges were involved in approving the 2,800 subpoenas, 500 search warrants, and 50 pen registers that resulted in 199 criminal charges against 37 individuals including 7 members of the campaign pleading or going to jail https://twitter.com/MZHemingway/status/1110002109141958656 …
This is what you call: “The very best i can come up with”.
So many questions.
Could not agree more. See you soon.
My latest. (And a fuller meditation on that last Tweet thread) https://www.wsj.com/articles/mueller-is-done-now-probe-the-real-scandal-11553468801?shareToken=stc80788b0686b44919e2d48661b9f9f89 … via @WSJ
4) If Mueller has done his job, he will address some of this. But the real accounting needs to come from a full declassification of FBI/DOJ probe docs. Mueller report is only half the story. Time to go back to the beginning, to how we got a special counsel in first place.
3) The Papadopoulos conversation was always thin gruel. And the Mueller findings now prove the dossier was a fabrication. The country now deserves a full accounting of how the FBI blew this so badly--so that it doesn't happen again.
2) If you are going to investigate a presidential campaign, and on a charge as grave as collusion, and with the heavy-handed tactics the FBI employed--you'd better have a highly convincing reason to act. The Mueller report is a judgment that never was any real evidence.
1) On the #NoCollusion findings of Mueller's report. It's worth recognizing that this is more than an exoneration. It's a searing indictment of the FBI.
That is really kind. Thanks @RichLowry. And congrats to those journalists who kept their heads and remembered what this job is supposed to be about.
"Special counsel is not recommending any further indictments." Assuming this is true, I wonder when Americans can expect an apology from all those who spent two years getting it breathlessly, abjectly and irresponsibly wrong. https://www.wsj.com/articles/house-committee-told-to-expect-word-that-mueller-report-has-been-delivered-to-attorney-general-barr-11553288563?shareToken=st55ba21da0e2049b2ad8f2dd2105013a1 … via @WSJ
“People our age have never experienced American prosperity in our adult lives" might have been the most ridiculous thing ever written on Twitter. http://thefederalist.com/2019/03/22/stop-whining-millennials-youre-prosperous-generation-thats-ever-lived/#.XJUTIrAQ3Lw.twitter …
certainly ranks high.
Ex-FBI lawyer James Baker: -Glenn Simpson tried to "elevate" the dossier by spreading it all over Washington, and FBI knew it -Reporter David Corn was "anxious" to give him the dossier Confirming @KimStrassel's report on Baker transcript. https://dailycaller.com/2019/03/22/james-baker-fbi-dossier-simpson/ … @dailycaller
Good stuff from @ChuckRossDC about all the other places Fusion/Simpson/allies were spreading the dossier.

"Mr. Baker’s testimony makes clear the FBI was highly aware of Mr. Simpson and his reputation, and of the risk all this would blow up." https://www.wsj.com/articles/what-fbis-counsel-told-congress-11553209575?shareToken=stb87cf232e9304635b9c16f00f1c952d3 … via @WSJ
