"It pays to have friends in high places"

Clinton cronies are everywhere — even the U.S. Justice Department. Now it’s clear why Justice officials are trying to undercut FBI Director James Comey at every turn.

On Monday, Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik wrote to calm the increasingly ruffled feathers of ranking Democratic lawmakers over the reopening of the Hillary Clinton email probe, made public Friday by Comey.

“We assure you that the Department will continue to work closely with the FBI and together, dedicate all necessary resource(s) and take appropriate steps as expeditiously as possible,” Kadzik wrote.

All of this would be little more than inside-the-Beltway butt covering — without a little more knowledge about Kadzik himself, and how this has become a game of Clinton cronies versus the FBI — and why it’s beginning to smell like a steaming pile of manure.

And here’s where recent document dumps by WikiLeaks from the email files of Clinton campaign manager John Podesta are all too enlightening. As a private attorney, Kadzik represented Podesta when he testified during the special counsel’s investigation of Bill Clinton and the Monica Lewinsky affair.

Podesta would later recommend Kadzik for a post in the Obama administration’s Justice Department as “Fantastic lawyer. Kept me out of jail.” The leaked emails also included arrangements for at least two dinners with Podesta, one the night after Hillary Clinton’s marathon testimony before the House Select Committee on Benghazi and a second at the Podesta home earlier this year.

The document dump also included a letter from Kadzik’s son to Podesta looking for a job with Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

As head of DOJ’s Office of Legislative Affairs, Kadzik now serves as a liaison to Congress — a position that would give him ample access to FBI investigators and information dealing with any or all of the Clintons’ cases.

This destroys the Democrat party beyond the welfare crowd and the Lefties.

It's going to be interesting to see how many people say, "I didn't leave the Uni-Party; the Uni-Party left me".

And, if you think I'm kidding, consider Louis Farrakhan's words, "Hillary is Hitler".

Think about it from Farrakhan's perspective (if you can stomach that). He's looking into the future and seeing that under Clinton he'll just be one more representative of a victim group with his hand out for government cheese. Under Trump, he's a revolutionary. He can go back to being Pretend Bullshit Malcolm and saying outrageous things about the government.

The recalcitrant media/establishment NeverTrumpers are making a similar calculus. Under Clinton, they're renegades. The Last Hope of America. Under Trump, they're has-beens.

Something to conjure with. Jay Sekulow & Co are lodging a FOIA suit against the Justice Dept over the tarmac meeting between Lynch and Willie.

If we are lucky, no matter who wins, the leaks will keep leaking. For this I pray.

Hate to tell you, sweetie, but that's how a lot of these revelations come out and, since there's something of a palace revolt going on, they may in fact get right on that, rather than have whoever's leaking everything dump it in WikiLeaks' lap.

This is where all the stuff about a palace revolt comes in, the G-men are 99% certain at least 5 foreign services hacked Frumpty's server.

They all have each others fists up each others cunts while they want to shove their fists into all of our asses to keep their gravy train going. Fucking burn them all into hell.

Meth, That's a very compelling visual. Is there video. I want in on the ground floor for the corruption porn genre.

AJ Lynch said...

Lem - how about a post where you ask us to give our predictions for election day?

ndspinelli said...

Meth and bags, LOL!! It's good to see people laughing here.

edutcher said...

You want laughs?

The FBI has opened a high-priority pay-for-play investigation of the Ozark Mafia Global Slush Fund.

Now, if those rumors of the Hillary Express to Sex Slave Island turn out to be true...
