December 10th update of DOJ IG report with Brad Johnson


we are on December 10th it is it is just
00:04
the most intense chaotic political
00:07
theater I think by now most people who
00:10
have you know got in to watch this are
00:12
starting to ask for their money back yes
00:16
so hard to follow I mean what actor we
00:19
it but you know if you could make you
00:22
know it was good not to speak about it
00:24
yesterday
00:24
when the actual report came out because
00:27
it was the fog of war and the
00:29
information battlespace yesterday there
00:31
was no making sense of anything least oh
00:33
I can see if you could just offer some
00:35
clarity what’s going on at this point we
00:38
all know what everybody’s waiting for at
00:40
least it’s been paying attention and
00:42
that is to see some actual information
00:47
coming out about some of these these
00:49
coup plotters anyway please just take it
00:51
away all right I so this is I guess
00:54
update part one I now a number of things
00:57
have happened yesterday and today so
00:59
first of all yesterday they had the kind
01:02
of second set of hearings which was now
01:05
out of the Judiciary Committee and this
01:09
was basically the same stuff what they
01:12
did is they kind of brushed off the
01:15
Muller report and they didn’t have
01:18
really I mean technically they had zero
01:20
witnesses what they did is they brought
01:22
in two attorneys the Republican attorney
01:26
and a democratic attorney both like Hill
01:29
staffer types who came in and gave their
01:32
opinion on all the stuff that had gone
01:33
on that was really kind of a so there
01:36
was nothing there was nothing new
01:38
precisely it wasn’t even designed to get
01:41
anything new out there it was designed
01:43
for you know even as poorly thought
01:45
through as it was all it was was these
01:47
layers giving their opinions on
01:48
everything that had already come before
01:50
so I mean it was built not to have
01:52
anything new there was like I said zero
01:55
witnesses the big news item out of this
01:58
whole thing I watched this yesterday the
02:00
I believe it was the Republican lawyer
02:02
so don’t don’t hold me to that I’m not a
02:04
hundred percent sure but I believe is
02:05
the Republican lawyer brought his
02:07
briefings and all his paperwork in a
02:09
grocery bag
02:11
was one of the reusable reusable grocery
02:12
bags I think from fresh markets and
02:15
fresh markets has now made a joke out of
02:18
it it went viral they’ve said you know
02:19
come on in and you know buy stuff and
02:21
we’ll give you a free bag and you can
02:23
use it to take your groceries or your
02:25
legal briefs in and things like that so
02:27
that’s been the big item out of the
02:28
whole thing a joke about this guy using
02:31
his grocery bag for his paperwork which
02:34
that’s probably the most newsworthy item
02:37
out of the actual hearings themselves so
02:40
ironically the Democrat guy got up the
02:44
Democrat lawyer who is a staffer for the
02:47
Democrats now that’s his job his first
02:51
sits down there and is you know a
02:53
witness and some kind of pen so the
02:57
Republicans start going we’ll wait a
02:59
minute you know how is this guy witness
03:00
he’s you know he’s a guy who donated
03:02
over a hundred thousand dollars or tens
03:04
of thousands of dollars to the
03:05
Democratic Party and he’s this and that
03:07
and the other they’re doing no harassing
03:09
the witness this is what Jerry Nadler
03:11
saying who’s running the committee
03:13
hearings and so it was just a joke and
03:16
then as soon as that guy’s done
03:17
testifying
03:18
he gets up from a seat and goes around
03:19
walks behind and sits down with the
03:21
Democrats again who are then running
03:23
this this this supposed hearing on on
03:27
the impeachment so it was in just a
03:29
complete fiasco joke it’s idiocy like I
03:32
said the highlight of the whole thing
03:34
was this grocery bag diff though one
03:36
lawyer was caring so zero out of that
03:40
and I don’t think it’s helping their
03:41
ratings in a week we’ll see how those it
03:44
takes about that long to filter back to
03:46
everybody and then the new polls will
03:48
come out in a week or ten days and we’ll
03:49
see the results of what went on here
03:51
part two of this then as the Democrats
03:55
came out with two articles of
03:56
impeachment this is kind of a separate
03:58
Act and originally Nancy Pelosi
04:01
who’s the Speaker of the House she is
04:03
the head of the Democrats in on the
04:05
house side said that she wasn’t going to
04:08
go forward with articles of impeachment
04:09
and less there was bipartisan support of
04:11
which there’s zero bipartisan support
04:13
and in fact it appears that some of the
04:16
Democrats a handful of them will defect
04:19
over to the Republican side and vote
04:20
against impeachment that remains to be
04:23
seen haven’t probably committed
04:24
they committed to it but then there’s a
04:26
lot of them that are worried about it
04:27
because of their voting districts and a
04:29
lot of other issues so there’s a good
04:31
chance that there’s going to be a
04:32
handful that will defect from the
04:33
Democratic side to the Republican side
04:35
and vote against the articles of
04:36
impeachment
04:37
any thoughts as to what number and info
04:39
would be on you know the ones that are
04:43
in districts that are up for grabs or
04:45
maybe it doesn’t where they’re in
04:48
political trouble I’m probably going to
04:49
lose their seat in the next election so
04:51
they’ve got to try and walk a fine line
04:53
and I still try to appeal to their base
04:55
that got them elected but with the
04:57
understanding that too many of those
04:59
people are against it and it’s kind of a
05:00
Republican leaning district at all so
05:02
there’s maybe a dozen or so there in
05:04
that fix of which you know like I said
05:07
maybe a handful would actually vote
05:09
against impeachment four five six now
05:11
Nancy Pelosi is perfectly capable this
05:14
is where she shines is she can count
05:16
votes she’s going to know and probably
05:19
has had discussions with these people
05:20
saying like you know don’t do it or well
05:23
okay you know you three can do it
05:25
because you’re in the most danger and
05:27
you will lose your seat you know there’s
05:29
there’s discussions of that nature
05:30
negotiations going on behind the scenes
05:32
with Nancy Pelosi and those dozens of
05:35
people so she may give them permission
05:37
they may say screw them and do it anyway
05:39
because otherwise I’m out come November
05:41
so what difference does it make if I
05:43
make you happy or unhappy so that’s all
05:46
taking place back there and it’s
05:48
difficult to predict because each one of
05:49
those is an individual situation as good
05:52
or as bad as it may be for those people
05:54
so we’ll see but I would you know like I
05:58
say I would be figuring you’ll probably
05:59
be able to count them on one hand sort
06:01
of situation I don’t think you have all
06:03
12 of them saying now now we’re voting
06:07
against this and I think you know you
06:08
start if that happened you you might not
06:11
see it even passed the house but like he
06:13
said Nancy Pelosi can count votes if
06:15
she’s brought it this far then it’s
06:17
because she thinks she can get it passed
06:18
they’re rushing it through as we’ve all
06:20
seen the two articles of impeachment are
06:22
obstruction of Congress and abuse of
06:24
power now the problem with those of
06:26
course is there’s no actual misdemeanor
06:29
or crime that took place and they’re not
06:32
claiming there’s a crime they’re just
06:34
saying it’s an abuse of power they’re
06:35
kind of
06:36
making that up as to what it is that
06:38
boils down the whole thing boils down to
06:40
this Trump asked about Biden’s
06:45
involvement with this burr yzma deal
06:48
where his son was getting paid a little
06:50
over three million dollars and working
06:54
for this Purisima company that was being
06:55
investigated by the Ukrainian prosecutor
06:58
that very same Ukrainian prosecutor is
07:00
the guy that you Abidin got fired that’s
07:02
the issue so they’re saying for
07:05
president Trump to have asked about that
07:07
is abuse of power and then when he
07:10
didn’t cooperate and give them
07:11
everything they wanted in these hearings
07:15
then that’s obstruction of Congress but
07:17
which of course just these are just
07:19
made-up things they’re known there’s no
07:22
laws involved with all this stuff
07:23
they’re just made up so there’s no real
07:26
they’re there if you will it’s a nothing
07:28
burger in the sense of what’s actually
07:30
there now a couple of pundits have come
07:32
out the legal eagle guys and said you
07:34
know when it gets to the Sanitation just
07:35
an immediate dismiss the law that’s
07:38
broken you know put the law that was
07:40
broken where is the actual crime on the
07:42
table so we can look at it and see so
07:44
you know you got ten seconds what is the
07:47
crime what proof do you have for that
07:48
crime and if I don’t see it you know
07:51
what is the case to take forward so it
07:53
be immediately dismissed now you know
07:56
that’s how maybe that is something
07:58
that’s certainly possible that could
07:59
happen don’t know if that’s better or
08:01
worse for Trump for I would think for
08:03
Trump’s perspective a actual trial in
08:06
the Senate might be good for him because
08:08
then they can start bringing up all of
08:09
these people that can testify against
08:12
that what the Democrats are portraying
08:14
the situation as and they can bring up
08:15
all this stuff on Biden and Hunter Biden
08:18
and all that so it’s an opportunity for
08:20
them to actually finally lay out their
08:21
story so that’s kind of the second area
08:25
of what’s going on right now the the
08:28
Democrats are in a very tough position
08:30
at this because they’ve got to play to
08:32
their base they have to move forward
08:34
because they’ve been promising this to
08:36
their base for three years they know
08:39
it’s crap they know there’s nothing
08:40
there’s nothing to it
08:41
Obama I like take the fast and furious
08:44
the gun investigation and all of these
08:46
different things that that went on
08:48
during the
08:49
Obama years his level of cooperation
08:52
with the investigations of the of the
08:55
house on these things was far less than
08:57
it was for what Trump has been doing so
09:00
Trump has been far more cooperative so
09:01
if obstruction of Congress is something
09:04
that a co-equal part of the government
09:09
which is the judiciary the legislative
09:11
and the executive the executive and
09:12
judicial exec judicial sorry judiciary
09:16
legislative is our co-equal so I mean
09:20
for them to say that the president is
09:22
obstructing Congress like I said this is
09:25
a nonsensical made-up thing that doesn’t
09:27
exist
09:27
within the Constitution and all that so
09:29
all the stuff they’re saying about
09:30
defending the Constitution and on our
09:32
rights and our votes and blah blah blah
09:34
all made up they all know it’s made up
09:36
they all know it’s a lie
09:37
there isn’t anybody except for out in
09:39
the public who don’t know any better
09:40
that believe any of that is true we all
09:43
know it’s false argument we all know
09:44
it’s nonsense when you hear these
09:47
reporters on television talking about
09:48
this so if they all know they’re lying
09:49
when they defend it everybody knows so
09:52
it’s just this made-up stuff so how it
09:54
plays out remains to be seen but they’re
09:56
now rushing the the Democrats Nancy
09:58
Pelosi is rushing to get this out of the
10:00
way done before Christmas so that it’s
10:03
forgotten by Christmas but yet she
10:05
played to her base and then after
10:07
Christmas she can pick up the
10:09
legislative items that are pending that
10:11
that everybody’s ripping them on now
10:13
saying you’re not passing anything you
10:15
do nothing you’re blocking there’s a lot
10:17
of good stuff pending you’re not letting
10:18
any of it go forward so they’ll pick all
10:20
that up and after the new year and then
10:22
try to get some legislation done going
10:24
into the elections in November so that’s
10:26
the game plan they’re playing out but
10:28
there’s so many ways for this to bite
10:29
them in the rear and Trump now again
10:33
whatever you think of Trump a lot of
10:35
people think he’s crude and all that but
10:36
the man is a master at manipulation of
10:39
the press he’s really good at running
10:41
media and all and he’s he’s lacking most
10:44
of the tools to do it and he’s still
10:46
kicking there but you know if he was on
10:48
equal footing he would just rule
10:49
everything and but even at the
10:51
disadvantage to position he’s an he’s a
10:53
winning across the board in media his
10:56
numbers are going up impeachment numbers
10:58
are going down economy is doing well
11:00
he’s
11:02
doing great now the third area then is
11:04
the Horowitz report the DOJ IG Horowitz
11:09
has come out with report now this is
11:11
something I’ve alluded to or mentioned
11:13
before not in great detail but Horowitz
11:16
is a company man I think everyone knows
11:18
I mean he’s he’s insider he’s Beltway
11:21
guy he’s the swamp sort of guy that his
11:24
whole career is doing all this stuff
11:25
within government so he’s the guy doing
11:28
the investigation now couple of problems
11:30
for him I mean he’s doing what I have
11:32
said all along more or less he’s gonna
11:34
do he’s not going to come out and you
11:36
know have some earth crushing thing he’s
11:39
an IG so what he can do is very limited
11:41
what he has done was sort of unfortunate
11:45
in one sense because he’s come out and
11:47
said there’s no basically there’s no
11:50
proof of bias so now you have to keep in
11:55
mind this guy’s a lawyer so he speaks in
11:57
lawyer ease and so what his standard is
12:01
there now me as an intelligence guy
12:02
there’s clear and obvious proof we all
12:05
know his bias the 17 mistakes that were
12:09
made in this process of FISA were all
12:13
against President Trump there was zero
12:16
mistakes the other way where it was like
12:19
helpful to Trump so out of those 17
12:21
things that were mentioned they’re all
12:22
targeting Trump and that I we all know
12:26
that’s targeting Trump we all know the
12:28
bias was there but his standard is not
12:31
that his standard is the legal standard
12:33
can I go to court in front of a judge
12:36
and prove beyond a reasonable doubt bias
12:39
and the answer is no he doesn’t have all
12:42
that proof but he’s an IG he can’t
12:45
subpoena people and force them to
12:47
testify so it’s very very difficult for
12:50
him to reach that standard so I’d like
12:53
if I’ll settle along I just it’s just
12:55
not that significant but that’s that’s
12:57
why that’s come out that way and
13:01
Christopher Rea who’s the director of
13:03
the FBI currently has been and I’ve
13:06
started talking about this right after
13:08
he was appointed because instead of
13:10
coming in and trying to fix things what
13:11
he did is try to come in and cover up
13:13
things so Christopher Reagan is
13:15
swamp Miller come dwell our company man
13:17
well Christopher Rea wants is to protect
13:19
the reputation of the FBI that’s what he
13:21
thinks he’s doing that’s what he
13:23
honestly believes he’s doing what in
13:25
fact he’s doing is precisely the
13:27
opposite because instead of coming in
13:29
and cleaning up this frickin mess what
13:32
he did is trying to tamp it all down
13:34
like I said hoping that what he’s doing
13:36
is protecting the reputation of the FBI
13:38
it’s too late the cats out of the bag
13:40
the FBI’s got problems it’s broken
13:42
organization it needs to be fixed and
13:44
rather than covering up the problem you
13:46
need to just man up grow a pair and fix
13:50
the damn thing now Christopher ray is
13:51
not capable of that it’s time for him to
13:53
be fired president Trump has hinted
13:55
about there being problems with
13:57
Christopher ray and he mentioned
13:58
publicly and this morning that
14:01
Christopher Ray’s comments are very odd
14:03
because he must not be reading the same
14:05
report I’m reading because there’s
14:06
clearly problems there that need to be
14:07
fixed so Trump is on to this he
14:09
understands he’s got the problem with
14:11
Christopher a time to fire him time to
14:13
go on to the next guy trying to go find
14:15
somebody that would actually fix the FBI
14:17
which by the way why not John Durham
14:19
when he’s finished with his report put
14:21
him in his director of the FBI that guy
14:23
has taken a close look at this and will
14:24
be in a position to actually fix things
14:26
so my recommendation of mr. Trump
14:28
president Trump if you’re listening
14:29
there you go get rid of Christopher Ray
14:31
put in John Durham and let these guys go
14:34
to town and get the FBI back up and
14:36
running where it’s a trusted
14:37
organization because what we’ve seen is
14:39
just this this political corruption at
14:41
the high levels of the FBI that is are a
14:45
disgrace to the working level people at
14:47
the FBI where we see these payoffs from
14:50
the press and they’re leaking to them
14:52
and this political corruption of who you
14:54
target and don’t target it’s an absolute
14:56
disgrace it needs to be fixed and so you
14:58
got to have somebody in there that will
15:00
actually fix it and he’s picking these
15:03
swamp dollars like Christopher ray who
15:05
like I said misguided I don’t think he’s
15:08
some evil person and to undermine this
15:10
or that or Burton you know destroy the
15:12
Constitution I think he thinks that he’s
15:14
doing what’s right but the problem he’s
15:17
just so badly misguided it just shows a
15:19
complete lack of understanding of the of
15:22
the depth of the situation so he’s
15:23
clearly way over his head bad pick from
15:27
the beginning they need to fire him
15:28
and get him out of there so that’s it
15:31
those are the three elements that’s
15:32
where we stand as of today what’s going
15:34
to be happening next and what’s coming
15:36
up are these articles of impeachment are
15:38
going to have to be voted on very
15:40
quickly they’re going to do it before
15:41
Christmas break they want it gone and
15:43
off the table after when they everybody
15:46
comes back from New Year’s and of course
15:47
everybody does Washington basically
15:49
shuts down from 15 December to to 15
15:53
January roughly all the people on the
15:56
hill are back home with family and
15:58
constituents and all of these sorts of
16:00
things so they want this that month
16:03
where everything is off for Christmas to
16:06
let this story die so they can go on and
16:08
try to do other things because they know
16:09
it’s a loser they see those same poll
16:11
numbers we do they I they think they’re
16:16
doing this great job and it’s really
16:17
playing well but I think they also
16:19
recognize that it’s really playing well
16:21
and they’re doing a great job but for
16:22
their base but they can’t win an
16:24
election at their base the the numbers
16:27
that Trump is polling among black voters
16:29
and Hispanic voters and even Jewish
16:31
voters is is off the chart so you know
16:34
if he pulls away call it all of those
16:37
things combined pulls across 10% of
16:39
those votes Democrats are done and if
16:41
they vote in the lower elections like
16:43
the House and Senate and those sorts of
16:45
elections is well using the same numbers
16:48
which doesn’t always happen meaning that
16:51
they vote for a Republican president
16:53
they might still vote for a Democratic
16:54
congressman or senator but many of them
16:56
will also still vote Republican party
16:58
across the board so if all of that
17:00
happens and that’s a low-end number ten
17:02
percent that’s enough to just basically
17:04
wipe out much of the Democratic side
17:07
certainly take back control over the
17:08
house pick up a seat or two on the
17:10
Senate side so that’s that’s where it’s
17:13
going forward we’ll see this play out
17:14
whatever it does in the Senate assuming
17:16
it passes the House which I would expect
17:18
to happen in the next few days and the
17:20
Horowitz report by week one last thing
17:23
very important on this John Durham came
17:27
out and said I don’t agree with some of
17:29
the conclusions of of what you had on on
17:31
how the the FISA warrant was obtained
17:33
and what John Durham is saying is about
17:37
reading between the lines this is me and
17:40
my estimation
17:41
he means by this is indictments are
17:44
gonna come out in that area where the
17:46
Horowitz report didn’t really recommend
17:48
anything of that nature they did hint
17:50
that essentially there was a move to try
17:52
and oust the president but that it was
17:55
you an honest mistake sort of a thing
17:56
where Durham is coming out and going ah
17:58
well that uh that that Durham comes out
18:02
with means he has in mind indictments
18:05
behind behind all of this
18:06
Durham report will come out sometime
18:08
between now and September so I would I
18:11
would actually predict March something
18:13
along those lines a lot of people are
18:15
saying that just because it would be
18:16
good timing gives him a few months to
18:17
put all this together and finish up what
18:19
he’s got to do so that would be my rough
18:21
guess a lot of people are guessing March
18:23
I agree I think that’s about right
18:25
so in essence then all of us who were
18:27
hoping to find some that is to say all
18:30
of us were supporters of President Trump
18:33
in the administration we’re hoping to
18:35
find some kind of satisfaction the IG
18:38
report really have to wait for March for
18:40
this other report yes I think so
18:43
the director ray FBI director right has
18:48
already said oh you know we’re taking
18:49
actions against these guys well
18:51
therefore these seventeen violations
18:53
that whoever’s left we’re going to you
18:55
know put a letter in their file or some
18:58
silly nonsense
18:59
that’s which by the way that’s standard
19:02
swamp response we did something see you
19:06
know I put a letter in that guy’s file
19:08
which means and those got taken out of
19:10
their file after a few years I think
19:12
three years or something like that those
19:13
get polls they’re not even a permanent
19:15
thing in these guys file it was the same
19:18
thing that we saw at a State Department
19:20
IG when they did the inspection of those
19:23
perhaps 60,000 classified documents that
19:27
ended up on Anthony Weiner’s laptop out
19:29
of the Hillary Clinton White House a
19:31
black and white crime each one of those
19:34
classified documents is an individual
19:36
crime the IG State Department IG
19:40
finishes their report they’re go yeah I
19:41
mean there were some mistakes and all
19:43
those people every one of those things
19:44
was adjudicated and all those people
19:46
were appropriately punished but yeah I
19:48
mean are they in jail for having those
19:51
class thousands of classified
19:52
documents get outside the system and go
19:54
to somebody’s house you know know but
19:57
you don’t know what happened to those
19:58
people that’s closed-door standard
20:00
operating procedure for the swamp they
20:01
take care of themselves they take care
20:03
of their own and those those guys will
20:05
get some sort of slap on the wrist and
20:08
three years from now probably whatever
20:10
it is that was done to anyone involved
20:12
in any of those things
20:13
State Department DOJ FBI it’s completely
20:16
gone so it’s just the swamp being the
20:20
swamp I mean that’s the stuff that Trump
20:22
actually needs to clean up and I think
20:24
he’s only just now figured this out he’s
20:27
starting to see how dirty FBI was how
20:31
dirty do J was how dirty CIA was and
20:34
don’t forget CIA is on the menu for the
20:37
John Durham investigation they’re
20:39
involved in that so you’re gonna see
20:41
that come out so all of these guys the
20:43
entire 17 agencies are involved in
20:47
intelligence that’s formed the
20:49
intelligence community the IC as
20:51
everybody refers to it every one of
20:53
those guys signed off on this concept on
20:55
that every four year report that comes
20:57
out that’s the guidebook for
20:58
intelligence on facing the greatest
21:01
threats that the United States has out
21:03
there they’re graded one of the items
21:05
the high items on their list of great
21:07
threats was you know the global warming
21:09
these guys are freaking joke their
21:12
political their PC their swamp they’re
21:15
not interested in national security
21:16
United States they’re interested in
21:18
their own political you know axe to
21:20
grind and they’re not interested in
21:22
getting the duties and the job of the
21:23
United States done so you got to start
21:26
cleaning house you’ve got to start
21:28
firing people you got to start moving
21:30
them out those that broke the law along
21:32
the way I’ve got to go to jail right now
21:34
our hopes are pinned on John Durham and
21:36
a US Attorney General bar and so far I
21:41
think our hopes are fairly well-founded
21:44
that the Constitution and the laws the
21:47
land will win
