What happened to those redact removed documents that Trump required to be released? Key allies called asked for them not to be released and they're back in the inspectors room?

His threat to declassify all the messages and docs that he thought would show that "really bad things were happening" at the FBI appears to have shrunk like a week old toadstool.

He didn't read all the stuff himself of course, he was relying on people who had told him this.

These people who advised him? Lou Dobbs. Sean Hannity. Jeanine Pirro. - The FOX News squad :lol: :lol: :lol:

So as per usual, he was taking in vague generalizations ("really bad things") about things he had been spectacularly ill-advised about by people who would've had no legitimate access to any of the classified/ redacted material.

Essentially, he was threatening to chuck a grenade into the FBI but it turned out he was holding a small and unimpressive pineapple.

I know why people say don’t listen to what he says.

It’s like watching your racist old grandpa slowly lose his mind until all he is doing is spraying conspiracy theories.

That is not what they said, actually. They said they have 'no recollection', 'no memory', or 'no knowledge' of it.

It’s quite a common thing at these parties for men to assault women in front of everyone. So it’s hard to understand how they can’t recollect it.

No recollection of it happenings means there is no recollection of it not happening which means it possibly did happen which means it happened.

That's how I read it. They didn't corroborate her account but they didn't not corroborate it either which is the same as corroborating it.

Well, you and me are both trained in aristotlean logic, so can follow these things through to their irrefutable conclusion.

If this prick Kavanaugh is not banged up for a stretch I will be shocked. The evidence is damming in its non-existence, which is the most damming of all evidences.

Meanwhile, the NY Times is in incendiary mode:

Quote:


The Patriarchy Will Always Have Its Revenge

I want to burn the frat house of America to the ground

By Jennifer Weiner
Contributing Opinion Writer

Sept. 22, 2018

… I’m beyond angry. As the spectacle of Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination unfolds, I find myself caught in the undertow of bad memories, stuck in a simmer of rage. My hands furl into fists. My jaw clenches. My teeth grind in the night. I send my daughters out into the world each day, with a wave and a smile, and then I come inside and want to cry out of fury and frustration, because the world has not changed fast enough. It’s one thing to say #MeToo, but if I find out it’s them, too, I can picture myself hunting down the man who hurt them and dismembering him with my fingernails and burning the whole world down.

When Clarence Thomas won his seat, I felt like someone had taken an eraser to the core of my being, and had rubbed a bit of me away. …

“If you poison us, do we not die?” The Jewish moneylender Shylock asked in “The Merchant of Venice,” inquiring whether his humanity matched that of his Christian clients. “And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?”

Jennifer Weiner is the author, most recently, of the memoir “Hungry Heart” and a contributing opinion writer.

As the days go by the lack of evidence of Kavanaugh committing a multitude of other crimes grows: slaver, lizard person, paedophile, the tooth fairy. None can be discounted on the lack of evidence.

The statement is a bit more clear cut than that, but whatever.

1. I don’t know Brett Kavanaugh and 2. I have never been to a party with him, with or without Dr Ford.

She's strumming the pain on many here with her fingers
Singing their lives with her words
Killing them softly with her song, killing them softly
With her song, telling their whole lives
With her words, killing them softly
With her song.

My question is why have key allies requested for them not to be released?

The FISC court applications and process are meant to be as secretive as it gets within the US justice system, so how would allied nations know what the redacted documents contain?

Presumably two of the Five Eyes nations have made the request, I'm guessing Australia and UK, due to Alexander Downer and MI6 involvement. However, the question still remains how would they know what these top secret documents contain in order for them to ask for their non release.

Or did the US ask their five eyes partners to provide surveillance on Trump's team ? This sort of thing is surprisingly frequent in its occurrence, Margaret Thatcher used the Canadian's to spy on cabinet members she didn't trust, Australia spied on former NZ prime minister John Key whilst in Canberra for negotiations and the UK using the NSA to eavesdrop on Princess Diana's communications as GCHQ was forbidden are some of the more high profile examples.

Trump has now asked the DOJ to expedite their review and release . Rosenstein of course has to recuse himself since his name is all over them and therefore it's a huge conflict of interest.

The job now falls to Horowitz to oversee the review and release.

So has Trump actually played this smartly.

If the documents show that Rosenstein made false statements to the FISC judges, coupled with the latest NYT article of him suggesting he wear a wire, he will have no choice but to resign. Trump gets his man without having to actually fire him.

Going to be an interesting few weeks either way.

I didn't realize we had interacted enough on this thread for me to get a call-out. I thought of myself as part of the background, rather than an active participant.

I must have said something that you just couldn't stop thinking about, like the idea of Trump's mushroomy cock filling your welcoming throat with its fungal spores.

Don't take it personally, kid; I don't think you're a bad person, just misguided.

There are any number of reasons allies would make this request.

Source secrecy - person
Method secrecy - devices
Interception secrecy - connections

Release of this information might compromise future operations and lives.

It’s not rare for these kind of requests to happen, in fact it’s rare and dangerous for people to try and force the release of this kind of intelligence.

The Allies also saw the fuckwit expose an Israeli source to the Russians; & not even realize what he'd done.

Reading anything at all into the apparent lack of evidence thus far is being extremely naive, given that the organization supposedly 'investigating' the incident is merely a group of inherently politically motivated politicians with a vested interest in not finding any evidence, who are imposing arbitrary rules (time limits! no witnesses!) to further hamstring any investigatory efforts, rather than actually make use of a Federal Bureau who is actually intended for Investigation.

But yeah, tell us more about he Lizard people, that doesn't make your attempts to sweep it all under the carpet hyperbolic at all.

Latest points showing Dems have 12 point lead over the GOP re midterms. Now, before the usual suspects start mouthing off about polls, just remember the 2016 polls were within the margin of error yeah IIRC. And besides, Clinton did win the popular vote.

To attempt to release the raw information rather than the processed, sterilized intel gleaned from it so soon after it has been obtained is insane.

If the documents show that Rosenstein made false statements to the FISC judges, coupled with the latest NYT article of him suggesting he wear a wire, he will have no choice but to resign. Trump gets his man without having to actually fire him.

Going to be an interesting few weeks either way.

First the release isn't going ahead, was announced Friday before "anonymous sourced" article re Rosenstein. Second, both the wire comment and the 25th ammendment comment were sarcasm. Wapo had an article sourced from people in the room.

I represent a woman with credible information regarding Judge Kavanaugh and Mark Judge. We will be demanding the opportunity to present testimony to the committee and will likewise be demanding that Judge and others be subpoenaed to testify. The nomination must be withdrawn.

Brett Kavanaugh must also be asked about this entry in his yearbook: "FFFFFFFourth of July." We believe that this stands for: Find them, French them, Feel them, Finger them, F*ck them, Forget them. As well as the term "Devil's Triangle." Perhaps Sen. Grassley can ask him. #Basta

Depends a little how one feels about lobbing rape allegations for political ends. Some people are comfortable with and others aren't.


Or... sweeping such crimes under the carpet for political ends. Some people apparently are comfortable with that.



What crime ? I cannot see a criminal investigation, yet, so what crime are you talking about ? The alleged one ?


If Ford's scarcely supported allegation had been brought before a law enforcement agency in the normal run of things it would likely not be investigated or prosecuted due to a lack of evidence.

Some are arguing that a lower standard should be applied in this instance.


Crimes are always alleged until proven guilty, or not.

As an alleged lawyer, Wilson, you should really not make such fundamental errors. Santa though .....

A veritable flood of last minute information. Lucky it's coming out now. Mere days before the vote.

Here's the Avenatti stuff

Quote:
US Lawyer Michael Avenatti says he has multiple witnesses who will say Brett Kavanaugh, President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, participated in gang rapes of drunken women during high school.

"We are aware of significant evidence of multiple house parties in the Washington, DC, area during the early 1980s during which Brett Kavanaugh, Mark Judge and others would participate in the targeting of women with alcohol/drugs in order to allow a 'train' of men to subsequently gang rape them," Avenatti said in an email to Mike Davis, chief counsel for nominations for the Senate Judiciary Committee on Sunday (Monday, NZ time).

And you wonder why women have been so hesitant to come forward after being sexually assaulted when their allegations are treated with such cynical dismissiveness. It also enables the sick bastards who do the assaulting... hey, who's going to believe her?

Sickening stuff.

Oh dear there appears to be 'multiple' rape-lobbing, drive-by smearers now, all coming out with their unprovable claims

Quote:
Avenatti told POLITICO he represents a group of individuals who can corroborate allegations involving Kavanaugh and his longtime friend in the 1980s.

Avenatti said he’d describe just one of the individuals as a victim.

“She will testify,” he said. “But before she does, she will likely appear on camera for an interview.”

He said the others were witnesses to the allegations. Avenatti would not elaborate on the number of clients but said he represents them alone.

“I represent multiple clients, they are witnesses. I’m representing multiple individuals that have knowledge of this, there’s no other attorneys involved,” Avenatti told POLITICO. Asked if the witnesses attended Georgetown Prep’s sister school, he said they went beyond that. “They went to schools in the same general areas. These house parties were widely attended.”

Avenatti said his new claims are "not out of character from what Dr. Ford said.”
