Running Scared: Lawfare Blog, Ben Wittes & ex-FBI Gen. Counsel James Baker

Two important articles out by the Washington Examiner make it clear that inside members of the “small group” behind the “Big Ugly” are now terrified. So much so that they are now trying to get out “in front” of what they know is coming….indictments and perp walks.

QUOTE:

In front of a packed room at the Brookings Institution in Washington D.C. on Friday, Baker was prompted (by Wittes) to discuss the Trump dossier compiled by ex-British spy Christopher Steele. The research was cited in the warrant applications, despite being largely unverified…

At issue are the applications’ lack of information about the Democrats who paid for the creation of the dossier, as well as Steele’s anti-Trump bias when the bureau applied to spy on Carter Page…

“You don’t want to put into a document like this gratuitous information about U.S. persons,” Baker said moderator Benjamin Wittes. “You want to try to minimize it, to some extent. If it’s important. If the assessment is that the identity is critically important and you need it to either follow the flow of the information … then you might put the person’s name in.”

Are you getting this, folks? In a pre-planned public event, Wittes is leading Baker through a series of comments designed to minimize what Comey, Baker, and McCabe did in obtaining FISA warrants. Here they are defending NOT including information about who PAID for the Steele Dossier in the FISA warrant application.

During the event Friday, Baker stressed that he examined the FISA warrant applications on Page before they got signed and sent to the court. He said he was “comfortable” with their contents and was confident that the process remained “lawful.” 

Baker was appointed FBI general counsel in January 2014 and reassigned by FBI Director Christopher Wray in December 2017. Last year, it was reported that Baker was resigning, and since has been employed by Benjamin’s Wittes’ Lawfare blog and joined the R Street Institute.

Ex-top FBI lawyer James Baker admits he is ‘nervous’ about DOJ inspector general

QUOTE:

Former FBI General Counsel James Baker admitted on Friday that he is “nervous” about DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s investigation into the conduct of the DOJ and the FBI during the Trump-Russia probe. 

Sitting down with with Lawfare’s Benjamin Wittes in a crowded room at the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C., Baker said he is “assuming that they will dig and find stuff” and that “…. mistakes were made.” But Baker defended the FBI’s actions, including its use of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act. 

Horowitz’s investigation is particularly focused on alleged FISA abuse and the reliance on British ex-spy Christopher Steele in FISA applications targeting Trump campaign associate Carter Page. Steele’s dossier was funded in part by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign through the Perkins Coie law firm and the opposition research group Fusion GPS. The investigation is expected to finish in May or June.

Wittes said that Baker “had expressed great confidence in the way you guys conducted yourselves, in the integrity of these fundamental judgments, in the opening with respect to two separate investigations and with the respect to the handling of this FISA application.” Wittes then asked Baker: “So, how nervous are you about the IG?” 

Baker said he is “always nervous about the IG,” adding that “they’re coming in after the fact to look at what we did.” At the time, he said, the FBI was “trying to do it in real time and having the pressure to deal with these threats as they were coming.” 

Baker contended that he was “confident in the judgments that I made at the time based on the information that I had available to me.” But he left open the possibility that others may have engaged in wrongdoing, saying, “I’m sure they will find things that I didn’t know at the time and maybe that others didn’t know at the time.”

“There were facts that existed in the Bureau that were known by certain people that weren’t known by others including me, that’s certainly possible and that happens frequently,” Baker said. “And so, I’m assuming that they will dig and find stuff like that.”

Baker said the FBI was careful in the way it used Steele’s reporting. “We have an obligation to take that information seriously and to be highly skeptical … You go to work … You try to validate it … We don’t just swallow it hook, line, and sinker. … We spent a lot of time trying to vet that information line by line,” he said. 

“We are the Federal Bureau of Investigations, not the Federal Bureau of Conclusions,” Baker said defensively.

Baker mentioned that he’s faced investigations before. “I’ve been investigated — or matters that I’ve worked on have been investigated — many times by the Inspector General. It’s not a pleasant process. It’s just not. The people are pleasant but the process is not the most enjoyable,” he said. 

Baker may have been referring to an alleged criminal leaks investigation that had been opened on him, which had been reported on as early as December 2017. He confirmed the existence of an investigation but declined to provide many specifics, saying, “Yes there is an investigation with respect to matters in which I was involved that is still open that I have cooperated fully with. I met with the investigative team for many hours over many days. That took place about a year and a half ago.” 

“I haven’t heard anything since then … other than to hear from the Department that the matter is still open.” Baker said. “I am confident that I did nothing wrong and nothing illegal.”

As the event ended, Baker summed up his thoughts on all of these investigations. “Hindsight is 20/20,” he remarked.

        had to abide them . But you fellows and ladies were above them. Legends in your own minds. You were the rule makers and the “enforcers”. Some of you had a “Higher Loyalty”. You asked the questions and never answered them, because those answers were “classified” .Only for those with a real need to know. Us deplorable flyover people certainly had no need to know what 30 million of our collective monies paid for. We would be gaslighted by our betters in the mainstream media , nightly as needed. You would expose the “bad orange man” in time to save our democracy. The evidence of Treason was out there just tune into MSNBC tomorrow for the next anonymously sourced bombshell. Then check in with CNN for the next breaking confirmation ontained from Yahoo ,as soon as sooper_spy Steele wires it .
        Anyway if the “Rule of Law” and equal justice under it is really , really here now you should not be enjoying that “FREE” feeling for much longer.

        1. “Tying to vet information” sounds like a 10 year old giving excuses.

          They’ll be going round and round about verification and justification – IMO, the underlying point, which I hope our side finds and reveals – is that they KNEW there was no verification or justification – because it was all an elaborate scheme/plot to create a completely false story/narrative. There was nothing to verify as they all knew it was a created storyline, like writer who wrote a fiction book, and Hollywood pushes it out as a non-fiction film.

          Sanctimonious, communist power-hungry people who had never been held to account for all the previous times they had broken the law… in their minds, they wouldn’t fail in their efforts this time.

          They didn’t try to verify, though they’ll claim they did, because they knew they didn’t have to. That’s where I hope they made their fatal mistake.

        1. Was with my liberal family a couple of weekends ago for a graduation(Oh i tried to keep it zipped)
          After one incident, I ended up taking lots of walks when politics came up or else I would have been calling all of them idiots.
          Two of my kids were talking about having missed hearing Hillary speak in San Francisco. Talked about what a good speaker she was, and wish they had seen her. I asked/commented about Bill being with her on that engagement. They said yes, and I mentioned I saw Bill speak in 2008.
          Both of them immediately trashed Bill from one end to the other, especially about his womanizing, even using the word “Whoring” . Not sure if it was cause I was shocked or that my head was spinning at all their hypocrisy. SO wanted to ask them “then why would they want him back in WH to chase more interns” But I just listened to their hypocrisy and repeat so many things I already knew about him.. Oh it went on for a good 5 mins with them even talking about Bill current escapades with Jeffrey Epstein with me just trying not to look shocked & to keep my lips sealed. One even said they felt that due to Bill Epstein got a better deal then he deserved. She even said Bill should have been locked up with Epstein.
          Damn this is the level of the crazies out there & to think they all have degrees.
          FYI this is was first, but not last political discussion they all engaged in, but I just laid low or went for a “Fitbit walk” as I called them. (Fitbit became my excuse most of the day.).
          It is sad but apparently many of them don’t even realize the many contradictions they kept making. Oh they were many. Worse part is they were mostly giving credit for America’s great economy to Obama.

      1. I feel the same way.

        I think President Trump has a way with revenge. He feels strongly that when you get screwed, you owe it to yourself to exact a price from the screwer that is greater than what they did to you. I think he feels this is not only justice, but a way to ensure they think twice before doing it again.

        I also think Trump is great at helping others exact similar revenge. He calls them in, tells them he knows what happened and is sympathetic, and explains how he can assist. I think this is happening with quite a few people around the President now.

              You have Jordan, Meadows, other good guys, fighting for truth and demanding documents/answers which RR refused. No questioning, no documents. Since he’s not cooperating let’s find his conflicts, and fuss him at every turn. That makes RR look like a blackhat.
              Real, honest DOJ doesn’t acknowledge or talk about investigations. Plus they know Congress leaks. People lose sight of that fact and get frustrated. I know I have. We want answers now.

              Some Dude knows the above, but is stuck on the old Uniparty model, and is invested in his narrative.

              Enter President Law and Order Donald Trump. There’s been a sting going on boys and girls, and Rosey (and others) played their parts perfectly. Hannity will apologize and move on. Some Dude will resist.

                Such a great point. Also, this must be a bit like herding cats. Meadow and Jordan and Nunes are good guys, but they have a job as Congress critters and their goal isn’t the same as RR’s for example. There is natural tension between their roles in the government. And they have all of us howling at them to DO SOMETHING, so they need to flex their muscles. Even if we are all on the same side, ultimately.

                Hannity has always liked the sound of his own voice. Rush does too, and he drives me crazy with doing the Left’s psyops work for them. I have no use for that.

                We’re seeing references to much more than the 2016 “campaign” and “being surprised” – I think we’ll be shocked at the extent of the plan and the players involved.

It will be so satisfying to see the traps they have fallen into. And as much as we’d like to know everything, we can’t. So many things have to be done clandestinely.

        Ambassador Kislyak</b.
        Kislyak introduces himself to Jeff Sessions at Candidate Trump's first Foreign Policy speech at the Center for the National Interest. He then shows up unannounced at Senator Jeff Sessions office. Thes leads to the FBI investigation of AG Sessions.

        Kislyak makes the call to General Flynn while he is on vacation out of the country setting the General up for Peter Strzok, David Ignatius and John Dickerson of Face the Nation, link to trip up Pence and get General Flynn fired. (I still think Pence was in on it.)

        Oleg Deripaska
        Waldman is Deripaska’s his personal lobbyist. Fusion GPS worked to get Magnitsky Act lifted that keeps Deripaska from doing business in the USA. Steele is represented by Waldman. Waldman is also texting Senator Warner…

        … Fox News report revealing Warner’s texts with Washington lawyer Adam Waldman, who has ties to Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence agent who produced the controversial Trump-Russia dossier. Waldman also represents one of Russia’s top oligarchs, Oleg Deripaska, an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin….

    Steele had small role in crafting dossier, believes Glenn Simpson crafted fantasies (me – Woah, Nellie)

    More people become contaminated with 2nd-4th renewals, imagine Fed government reading your emails for a year? scary stuff!! Me- They had been doing it illegally BEFORE the FISA, according to Admiral Rogers. I wonder if Nunes has put that together?

    1. It appears that it wasn’t just POTUS’ campaign. It’s likely to be exposed the spying on all the other candidates. Not only presidential candidates, but other public officials. When Obama came to office, he intended (though we didn’t realize it at the time) to create a vast data base, spy, and do everything he and handlers could to grab power – and nevermore relinquish that power.

      That’s how close we came to ending America as we know it.

      I believe that the shock will be in how far and wide this entire enterprise entailed. There likely are names from our side who will go up in flames.

      Looking at you, Romney. McCain is already dead, but his “legacy” will be dirtied for all time.

      1. I sure hope someone is looking into the FISA Court/Admiral Rogers document of unmasking abuse! That’s a goldmine of prosecution waiting to happen!

  10. (insert expletives) Democrats think they are so cute and clever with their cruel Lawfare™ tactic.

    They used it to nearly bankrupt Sarah Palin and her family.

    They tried it with Donald Trump and no doubt many others.

    A LOT OF FORMIDABLE legal minds have been TAKING NOTES.

    Charles Ortel has researched and compiled 40+ strong cases against the Clintons and their slush fund Foundation.

    Good minds have counted and compiled case after case against the Øbominable cabal as well.

    Time for those legal chickens to come home to roost – big time.
