Oh hey willya lookit that....here's @jsolomonReports at @thehill breaking more real news that helps that OTHER NARRATIVE, the one DNC Media wishes would just go away and die.

thehill.com/hilltv/rising/…
You know how well I know this stuff?

Look at what Solomon is reporting there. Nunes added an email chain from top DOJ NSD [that's Department of Justice, National Security Division, for those of you in Rio Linda] to the list of SpyGate docs he wants Trump to declassify.
I first looked into the DOJ's NSD more than a year ago along with other researchers after Horowitz surfaced in December of last year with his first release of some of the SpyGate evidence he had to the Congress.
Fun fact: When Horowitz was first appointed as DOJ Inspector General back in April of 2012, he immediately realized he'd been sandbagged by the people that appointed him. He was selected for his reputation & then Obama & Holder froze him out of EVERYTHING.
Fast & Furious was the first inkling Horowitz had that under the Obama administration, he wasn't going to be allowed to do his job. He had no power, no ability to force Holder or others to give him documents.

And he had this fact reinforced when it came to the DOJ NSD.
An Inspector General of a federal agency is supposed to have access to EVERYTHING that agency is doing. He's a watchdog, that's *why* he's there. It's supposed to be set up so he's the guy NOBODY can hide anything from.
Well Horowitz stepped into a situation where LOTS was being hidden from him.

He immediately ran into a roadblock when he discovered as DOJ IG, he wasn't ALLOWED to see not just SOME documents circulating inside the DOJ NSD; he wasn't allowed to see ANY of them.
When Horowitz wrote a formal letter asking to be allowed to do his job and access the documents being circulated inside the Nat. Sec. Div., Sally Yates told him to go pound sand.
Guess what was one of the first things that happened when that miracle occurred in Nov. 2016 and a new administration came into power in January 2017 when SOMEBODY NOT HILLARY CLINTON was sworn in as President?
Trump and Sessions TOOK HOROWITZ OFF HIS LEASH.

They made instant reforms that took down all the barriers that had kept Horowitz at bay for more than 4 years.
Why did Horowitz announce on Jan. 12 he was launching an investigation into issues surrounding the 2016 election? He'd been told the Trump administration was going to actually let him do his job.

He IMMEDIATELY got access to all the NSD docs they'd hidden from him.
[edit: January 12 2017 in the previous tweet]

One of the FIRST things that revealed the SpyGate plot to Horowitz and SHOWED him where to go and start digging was those NSD documents he finally got to see.
And who was running/inside the DOJ NSD during the entire time the SpyGate plot was being formed and carried out, while Horowitz was being frozen out so he couldn't see it?

James Comey
John P. Carlin
Sally Q. Yates
Lorretta Lynch
Andrew McCabe
I first made this meme over a year ago. I've added/subtracted from it, but one person has always been on there.

John P. Carlin: the guy who was running the NSD while SpyGate went. Who almost IMMEDIATELY resigned from the FBI when Trump won instead of Hillary Clinton
Now that you have the BACKGROUND of all this, here's why Solomon's report today at The Hill is such a bombshell:
Nunes wants Trump to declassify an email chain between the members of the DOJ NSD in which they were discussing amongst themselves how they knew the Steele Dossier was BS *but* they planned to use at the FISC to get a FISA warrant ANYWAY.
I have NO DOUBT whatsoever this email chain from the DOJ NSD was provided to Nunes & his committee by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz.
The SpyGate plotters, even those STILL INSIDE THE DOJ/FBI at the time, like Comey & Yates and McCabe, they could no longer keep Horowitz from seeing NSD documents. And he found this email chain.

And now @DevinNunes wants Trump to declassify them.
Carlin read the handwriting on the wall and GTFO. Comey, Yates & McCabe desperately tried to hang on and keep what they did covered up and hidden, only to be tossed ass-first out of the agency one by one.
Remember what they did: they knew where that Steele Dossier came from, who paid for it's creation & that the info in it couldn't be verified because it was FAKE.

It was a paid political hit job & they *deliberately* decided to present it to the FISC as an intel report.
And according to Solomon, Nunes is saying this email chain from among DOJ NSD members *shows them* discussing this among themselves, laundering this paid political smear job so they can present it to the FISC as if it's an intel report coming from an intel agency.
That is a CRIME. To deliberately misrepresent key evidence and hiding it's true origins and nature from the FISC court to get a warrant to spy on the Trump campaign.
So if this email chain says what Nunes says it does, it's game over for the SpyGate plotters.

/end
ADDENDUM: for those that asked: the fight to allow the DOJ's own IG to have access to the *entire* DOJ system begain in 2014 when Congress passed the "Digital Accountability & Transparency Act".

oig.justice.gov/reports/2016/a…
It was *passed* by Congress in 2014, but of course Lorretta Lynch as AG until Jan. 2017 and Barack Obama was still President.

So nothing really got done *implementing* these new transparency laws until a new administration came into power in late Jan. 2017.
That's why that pdf detailing the new changes is dated December 20, 2016.
