Nonsense. This is a move by the alien lizard people working undercover in the deep state to avoid another Comet Pizza fiasco.

The amount of cement they needed to fill in that basement actually caused a regional shortage for approximately 3-5 days after it happened.

Not the worst part, but one of the bad parts, of that whole story is that Comet Pizza has decent pizza. There aren't a whole lot of "fun" pizza places left and it's definitely one of them. It's expensive, but it's all good.

Then again, DoJ effectively handed out a roadmap detailing how to get their support.

So Strzok is claiming that Trump is the only one who "possesses directly relevant information that cannot be obtained from other sources." - that information being whether or not Trump influenced DoJ to fire Strzok.

Call me crazy, but couldn't DoJ just moot the whole thing by saying "duh, he obviously influenced DoJ to fire him, and here's the memos/call logs" or "we got nothing"? Is there a reason they're allowed to say "sorry, you can't ask him whether he influenced us" without, you know, attempting to uncover the truth of the matter themselves? (Assuming we even trust them to, which is not an ironclad assumption.)

// assuming it wasn't Trump speaking directly to Jeff Sessions or something
// what happens if DoJ doesn't uncover anything suggesting influence? would Strzok be allowed to re-request a deposition, since now there is only one person who could know the truth?
// again, not that we expect him to (accurately) share it with anyone

FTFA:
In summer 2017, former special counsel Robert Mueller removed Strzok from his team investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election after an internal investigation first revealed texts with former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, with whom Strzok had an extramarital relationship, that could be read as exhibiting political bias. The FBI fired Strzok in 2018.

Well, I guess if you're having extramarital affairs, there's a strong chance you're a Republican. Not a lot of prominent Dems have had affairs like Newt, Trump, etc. I mean, Clinton had affairs, but that still puts it at a 2:1 ratio.

How does having Trump sit for a deposition affect criminal cases he is involved with?

Why is the possibility that the information Trump has could also be acquired from other sources at all relevant in the issuing of a subpoena?

Exactly!  He'll pull the same bullshiat he's doing in NY, saying he can't incriminate himself in a civil case while there is a criminal case pending against him.
 
2022-01-23 8:37:55 AM  
This is a good example of what Garland is thinking.

He believes that he has to protect the office of the Presidency.
Unfortunately if he protects Trump after abusing and wrongfully terminating an employee, it means he is also going to protect Trump for other wrongdoing while in office.

Strzok was the guy who was having an affair with Page, therefore was blackmail worthy therefore wouldn't be able to maintain TS clearance, which is necessary to be an FBI agent, right?

Regardless of anything else his termination wasn't wrong.

Don't forget the corruption.  The Mighty cannot ever be called to account.  You may pick some scapegoats, rob them of their power & prestige, and then hold them accountable.  Rudy is looking likely in this regard.  But never the actual ruling class.  Any sanction of them sets a dangerous precedent for the others, and that cannot ever be tolerated.

People nod sagely when they see the "Trump could shoot somebody" meme... and don't realize that the statement has been just as true of every other powerful politician and corporate leader for more than half a century... our whole existence, in fact, with perhaps a glorious, golden break mid-century where justice was not guaranteed but perhaps at least possible.  But not today.
