John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

About That FBI ‘Source’ Did the bureau engage in outright spying against the 2016 Trump campaign?

The Department of Justice lost its latest battle with Congress Thursday when it allowed House Intelligence Committee members to view classified documents about a top-secret intelligence source that was part of the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign. Even without official confirmation of that source’s name, the news so far holds some stunning implications.

Among them is that the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation outright hid critical information from a congressional investigation. In a Thursday press conference, Speaker Paul Ryan bluntly noted that Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes’s request for details on this secret source was “wholly appropriate,” “completely within the scope” of the committee’s long-running FBI investigation, and “something that probably should have been answered a while ago.” Translation: The department knew full well it should have turned this material over to congressional investigators last year, but instead deliberately concealed it.

House investigators nonetheless sniffed out a name, and Mr. Nunes in recent weeks issued a letter and a subpoena demanding more details. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s response was to double down—accusing the House of “extortion” and delivering a speech in which he claimed that “declining to open the FBI’s files to review” is a constitutional “duty.” Justice asked the White House to back its stonewall. And it even began spinning that daddy of all superspook arguments—that revealing any detail about this particular asset could result in “loss of human lives.”

This is desperation, and it strongly suggests that whatever is in these files is going to prove very uncomfortable to the FBI.

What's behind FBI-DOJ stonewall on probable FBI spy in Trump campaign?

 

* We may be on the verge of uncovering a shocking abuse of its powers by the FBI that it and the Department of Justice frantically have been concealing from Congress and the American people.  Kimberly Strassel of the Wall Street Journal has been doing superb detective work, and has uncovered strong hints of an FBI spy planted in the Trump presidential campaign.  Her latest article, published last night, can be found here outside the WSJ paywall.


* This would amount to spying, and it is hugely disconcerting.  It would also be a major escalation from the electronic surveillance we already knew about, which was bad enough.  Obama political appointees rampantly "unmasked" Trump campaign officials to monitor their conversations, while the FBI played dirty with its surveillance warrant against Carter Page, failing to tell the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that its supporting information came from the Hillary Clinton campaign.  Now we find it may have also been rolling out human intelligence, John Le Carré style, to infiltrate the Trump campaign.

By the way, whatever happened to Carter Page?

Sessions warns IG report on Clinton email case could lead to more firings

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, on the eve of the release of a long-awaited watchdog report on the Hillary Clinton email case, pointedly warned that the findings could lead to more firings. 

The Justice Department inspector general report reviewing the FBI and DOJ's handling of that case is slated to drop Thursday. 

In an exclusive interview with The Hill’s new web show “Rising” on Wednesday, Sessions said the option of “termination” is on the table for those accused of serious wrongdoing.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said he was open to firing more officials in connection with Inspector General Michael Horowitz's report.  (AP)

“If anyone else shows up in this report to have done something that requires termination we will do so,” Sessions told The Hill. 

It's unclear whether Sessions knows which individuals will be cited in the report, but several top FBI and DOJ officials are likely to come under criticism in the findings by IG Michael Horowitz. For more than a year, the inspector general has been reviewing those agencies' actions related to its investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state. 

IG REPORT TO BE RELEASED: WHO'S IN THE CROSSHAIRS?

“I think it will be a lengthy report and a careful report,” Sessions said, adding that he thinks it will “help us better fix any problems that we have and reassure the American people that some of the concerns that have been raised are not true.”

The report is expected to look at, among other things, whether “certain underlying investigative decisions were based on improper considerations.” 

“I think it's going to put a lot of the missing pieces in this giant puzzle together,” House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., predicted Wednesday on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom.”

Ken Starr will be hired, but paid off not to really investigate. He'll deliberately become "distracted" by some non-issue, hoping the public will again be so easily bamboozled.

 

Just change a few names and other particulars, and that'll be the gist of it. A page straight out of the Clinton playbook, and I certainly don't expect Sessions to make waves.

 

WWTGD? What would Trey Gowdy do?

FBI head proves Washington has a vendetta against Trump

 

As FBI director Christopher Wray started giving his response to the blistering report on the Hillary Clinton investigation, I hoped he would accept the findings as proof the agency lost its way and must be shaken to its foundation. By the time he finished talking, I felt ­naive for daring to hope.

Wray’s performance was worse than disappointing. It was infuriating proof that it will take more than one election to change the corrupt culture of Washington.

Wray replaced the ousted James Comey, whose conduct in the Clinton probe was shredded by Inspector General Michael Horowitz. Investigators demonstrated with new details that the self-right­eous Comey was insubordinate and duplicitous, and even used private e-mail for government business while he investigated Clinton over her private, ­unsecured server. Talk about arrogance.

The report ends forever the illusion that Comey was a noble public servant. He served only himself and is now so toxic to both parties that it’s unlikely he will ever get another government job. Hallelujah.

But the FBI didn’t stink only from the head. The report paints an agency run amok, with numerous examples of serious misconduct by leaders, agents and ­lawyers.

We learned of more outrageous texts from Peter Strzok, the top agent who worked on both the Clinton and Russia investigations. In one, Strzok promised his lover, former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, that “We’ll stop” Donald Trump from becoming president.

My Dad told me that Hillary wasn't wrong, because other people did it too. I was so stunned I didn't decide which would have been more appropriate, to slap him or to disown him. Those certainly are not the values he raised me with! It just shows what 50+ years of the influence of the NEA (National Education Association) will do.

 

Also at issue is the information that she hadn't classified. It was her JOB to label it as classified, with no one above her to oversee her. Her failure prevented her from running for any elected US office, by oath. Those are the consequences. Right up there with the consequences for all the people the Clintons had killed.

Republicans demand names of anti-Trump FBI employees from bombshell IG report

By Samuel Chamberlain | Fox News

 

Rep. Issa: Was DOJ, FBI bias criminal?

Ahead of Inspector General Horowitz and FBI Director Wray's House testimony on the IG report, Rep. Issa wants more answers on the bias of staffers.

A group of eight House Republicans has asked Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz to give them the names of FBI employees mentioned in last week's report on the Hillary Clinton email investigation, some of whom were portrayed as anti-Trump.

The letter said the lawmakers were "grateful" for Horowitz's work in compiling the report, but added that they were requesting the names "in the interest of justice and transparency."

"As representatives of the American people, Congress deserves to know exactly who contributed to the abuse of power at the Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI," the letter reads. "These individuals need to be held accountable and only transparency will ensure that action."

FBI EMPLOYEE SLAMMED TRUMP VOTERS AS 'UNEDUCATED, LAZY POS,' IG REPORT FINDS

The letter is signed by Reps. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz.; Dave Brat, R-Va.; Scott DesJarlais, R-Tenn.; Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., Paul Gosar, R-Ariz.; Jody Hice, R-Ga., Jim Jordan, R-Ohio; and Ralph Norman, R-S.C.

I think we need to be a little more British here; these sides need to break out in a fistfight, lol.

 

There's only clearance Strzok deserves, and that's to clear the uprights, right off the end of my boot ...
