THREAD: A long litany of assumptions by well-meaning speculators who conduct helpful grassroots research, but are making some of the identical mistake as those who misread the Clinton email investigation made, errors born of a lack of professional experience in criminal defense.
Mistake #1: assuming the existence of FBI or DOJ activity equals a criminal investigation w/ intent to indict. This is *especially* true in political inquiries often meant to *prevent* a real criminal investigation, not conduct one. See Clinton email inquiry as classic example.
Mistake #2: assuming an indictment into a potential participant in the hoped-for investigation means there is a broad-scale investigation of everything that company did. That is actually rare. Indeed, existence of a public indictment usually means NO secret separate case to come.
Mistake #3: ignoring the actions of the IRS who denied a whistleblower claim because the whistleblowers claim they were told an investigation exists. IRS cannot deny a claim if a criminal case exists, which means agents' comments show a cover-up case, not an intent-to-indict.
Mistake #4: Ignoring the contrary evidence, including lack of grand jury activity, refusal to take statements/interview potential witnesses, delay in getting intel from probable sources & complete absence of court activity. Want to know if a case is real: compare it to #Mueller
Mistake #5: Assuming a case into Clintons wouldn't leak like a sieve. Assuming a Congressman like @RepMarkMeadows would schedule a public hearing if he thought any real inquiry was taking place. Assuming a writer like @paulsperry_ wouldn't expose lack of activity if case active.
