Revealed: Robert Mueller’s FBI Repeatedly Abused Prosecutorial Discretion: Establishment DC types who reflexively defend Mueller haven’t explained how they came to trust him so completely. It’s a question worth asking given the bumpy historical record of Mueller’s tenure as FBI director.

Roger Kimball: The McCabe Report is Just an Appetizer

“In the coming weeks, Horowitz will follow up with entrees on the FBI’s partisan activities in the 2016 presidential election and, later, another report on (if I may employ the term) collusion with the State Department. . . . Andrew McCabe, you might recall, was a central player in the pseudo-investigation of Hillary Clinton’s misuse of classified information and self-enrichment schemes while Secretary of State. He was one of the people who made sure that went nowhere. He was also a central figure in the get-Mike-Flynn operation and, later, the Great Trump Hunt that has been occupying Robert Mueller for nearly a year. McCabe leaked information about an investigation to a Wall Street Journal reporter, lied about leaking in casual conversations with superiors as well as under oath. Attorney Jeff Sessions, digesting a preliminary report on McCabe’s conduct, fired him in March 2018 (not even a month ago, but it seems like forever).”

MSM Blackout Continues: Forget an Alleged “Hacking” of DNC by Russia, THIS is the Real Story Not Being Covered…

This is beyond alarming. This directly jeopardizes national security. This strikingly points to Wasserman-Schultz and the democrats, and the Obama administration, ineptitude, or worse … And yet, the MSM are either complete ignoramuses to it, or intentionally and malevolently burying it. Too bad there’s not an aging stripper/porn star/peeing-hooker attached to it…

DC: House Hacking Suspects’ Father Transferred Data To Pakistani Government, Ex-Partner Claims

The father of Imran Awan — an IT aide to Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz who investigators concluded made “unauthorized access” to House servers — transferred a USB drive to a Pakistani senator and former head of a Pakistani intelligence agency, the father’s ex-business partner, Rashid Minhas, alleged.

Minhas told The Daily Caller News Foundation that Imran Awan’s father, Haji Ashraf Awan, was giving data to Pakistani official Rehman Malik, and that Imran bragged he had the power to “change the U.S. president.”

Asked for how he knew this, he said that on one occasion in 2008 when a “USB [was] given to Rehman Malik by Imran’s father, my brother Abdul Razzaq was with his father.”

“After Imran’s father deliver (sic) USB to Rehman Malik, four Pakistani [government intelligence] agents were with his father 24-hour on duty to protect him,” he said. Minhas did not say what was on the USB.

[…]

The House Office of Inspector General charged in Sept. 30, 2016 that data was being funneled off the House network by the Awans as recently as September 2016 — shortly before the presidential election.

Nearly Imran’s entire immediate family was on the House payroll working as IT aides to one-fifth of House Democrats, and he began working for the House in 2004. The inspector general, Michael Ptasienski, testified this month that “system administrators hold the ‘keys to the kingdom’ meaning they can create accounts, grant access, view, download, update, or delete almost any electronic information within an office. Because of this high-level access, a rogue system administrator could inflict considerable damage.”

Read the whole thing.

And just a reminder: 44 Dems, Including Wasserman Schultz, Exempted Pakistani IT Aides From Background Checks

Nothing. Not even crickets from the MSM on this one.

Since it’s “Throwback Thursday” here are some previous posts with links to the background on this latest revelation:

Raul Castro’s Puppet: Cuba’s Veep Takes Over Title But Obviously Not Power

Don’t be fooled by this. Raul Castro’s had decades to watch and learn from Vladimir Putin how to pretend not to be dictator. Miguel Diaz-Canel will assume Cuba’s communist throne as nothing more than a figurehead…

Cuba turns to a model Communist Party official, Miguel Diaz-Canel, to steer it through a period of uncertainty when it finally turns the page on the Castro era in a vote on Thursday.

The 57-year-old First Vice President is the pre-ordained choice of Raul Castro as he steps down, ensuring that the vote in the National Assembly to appoint him will be little more than a formality.

The successor to Fidel and Raul Castro has spent three decades climbing to the summit of the Communist Party. He is ideally placed to continue to implement the economic reforms initiated by his 86-year-old mentor.

He will be the first Cuban leader born after the 1959 revolution — and perhaps crucially for some of the generals that will be under his command — the first not to have fought in it.
“There is a tradition in Cuba of strong men at the head of the State,” said Cuban watcher Arturo Lopez-Levy of the University of Texas-Rio Grande.

But “the profile of Miguel Diaz-Canel seems weaker,” Lopez-Levy added.

“He has no more power than what he has been given.”

[…]

Though he was often portrayed as a moderate with a quiet disposition, a video of a private meeting with Communist Party members released last year showed another side — a ruthless man with hardline views lashing out at Cuban dissidents and the US.

He has avoided interviews and controversy in general, and speaks only at public meetings. A father of two children from his first marriage, Diaz-Canel remarried, to Liz Cuesta, an academic specializing in Cuban culture.

After studying electrical engineering in the central province of Villa Clara, he became a university professor before going to work for Cuba’s all-powerful Communist Party.

In 1994, he was appointed the party’s provincial secretary in Villa Clara, where locals were impressed to see him riding his bicycle, portraying a simplicity uncommon among the regime’s leaders.

In 2003, while serving in the eastern province of Holguin, he joined the select 15-member Political Bureau, an essential step for any aspirant to power.

In 2009, Raul Castro, who had inherited power from his ailing brother Fidel three years earlier, tapped him to be higher education minister…

April 19, 1943

One of the most heroic battles of the Second World War started today in 1943. Seasoned Wermacht and SS troops fought against a rag-tag, hungry group of Warsaw Jews who had had enough. Never Again began that day in Warsaw seventy five years ago today.

Barbara Bush Passes Away at 92

Former First Lady to the 41st POTUS, and mother to the 43rd POTUS, Barbara Bush, has passed away after a long illness. Mrs. and Pres. Bush celebrated their 73rd wedding anniversary this past January. Just the other day a report came that she was forgoing any further medical care in favor of comfort care.

FOX News:

With her cloud of snow-white hair, signature three strand pearls and compelling presence, Barbara Bush’s image was what she laughingly called “everybody’s grandmother.” But the feisty, outspoken Bush was also a tireless advocate for literacy , an author, experienced campaigner and both wife and mother of a U.S. president.

Bush, 92, died Tuesday, shortly after her family announced she was in failing health and would decline further medical treatment in favor of “comfort care.” There were no details of her specific health problems.

The announcement was made in a statement from the office of former President George H.W. Bush.

“A former First Lady of the United States of America and relentless proponent of family literacy, Barbara Pierce Bush passed away Tuesday, April 17, 2018 at the age of 92. She is survived by her husband of 73 years, President George H. W. Bush; five children and their spouses; 17 grandchildren; seven great grandchildren; and her brother, Scott Pierce. She was preceded in death by her second child, Pauline Robinson ‘Robin’ Bush, and her siblings Martha Rafferty and James R. Pierce.”

[…]

In a statement, her son, former President George W. Bush, called his mother “a fabulous First Lady and a woman unlike any other.”
“My dear mother has passed on at age 92. Laura, Barbara, Jenna, and I are sad, but our souls are settled because we know hers was. Barbara Bush was a fabulous First Lady and a woman unlike any other who brought levity, love, and literacy to millions. To us, she was so much more. Mom kept us on our toes and kept us laughing until the end. I’m a lucky man that Barbara Bush was my mother. Our family will miss her dearly, and we thank you all for your prayers and good wishes.”

Comey’s Baloney Tour Kicks-Off—- Hold the Phone! Here Comes the DOJ IG Report! HEH!!!

With the debut of the fired former FBI director James Comey’s liberal/MSM-greatly-anticipated tell-all fiction novel about to hit the bookstore shelves bits and pieces of his prose are ‘leaking’ out and ABC is baiting their exclusive Sunday morning interview with the would be Clinton ass-coverer. The excerpts piling up are far more damning of the writer than they are of the POTUS Comey intends to smear and possibly hand the democrats bullshit to incite impeachment should they retake the House in the midterm elections. To say nobody is impressed with the man’s warped recollections in hardback is an understatement…

Didn’t tell the FISA court either.

Ex-FBI boss drops mysterious hint about Loretta Lynch’s involvement in Hillary email probe

James Comey’s cryptic reference in his new book to “a development still unknown to the American public” involving then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and the Hillary Clinton email probe is sparking furious speculation inside and outside the Beltway.

According to ABC News, Comey writes in “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership,” that he became the public face of the investigation partly because of the mysterious development which he felt could cast “serious doubt” on Lynch’s independence.

“Had it become public, the unverified material would undoubtedly have been used by political opponents to cast serious doubt on the attorney general’s independence in connection with the Clinton investigation,” Comey writes, according to ABC. He calls the material a “development still unknown to the American public to this day.”

Any revelation that Lynch might have been biased in favor of Clinton won’t surprise Trump supporters, but what exactly Comey means is a tantalizing mystery. The only details Comey offers is that the U.S. government became aware of information from a classified source in earlier 2016 — both the source and the information is still classified.

Lynch fueled speculation she was running interference for Clinton when she met with former President Bill Clinton on her plane on the tarmac of a Phoenix airport in July 2016, just days before Comey announced that he would not be recommending charges against Clinton — despite calling her handling of classified information “extremely careless.”
