Uh huh.   No one has denied that Horowitz found errors in the FISA app.   Doesn't invalidate the major findings of his report I just shared with you.
The “ major” findings?
The “ low threshold” needed to open an investigation?
But findings by the same IG uncovers blatant lies and false information to perpetuate that investigation are not “ major” to you?

Let us all know when you get to Koch Industries that were taken over by Charles and David in 1983. and its subsequent investment strategies.
it might take more time that your hurried previous Google search.

Not hurried.  Been aware of the Koch family since the 1960s, when we lived in Wichita.  Sure, they've done a fair amount of whitewashing and laundering since the 80s.  Dave sponsors "Nova"!  Woohoo.   Meanwhile the dark money flows.  And flows.
And flows where?

Bark bark bark.

The FBI omitted information re: the Steel Dossier that should have been included in the FISA warrants as part of their application to continue the Carter Page surveillance.  Not to "perpetuate the investigation."

And the report makes clear that a) the Steele Dossier was not the only predicate for that surveillance and b) the report declines to say whether or not those omissions were material to the granting of those warrants.

And while this may be significant to reform FBI operations and the FISA process, it does not in any material way discount the validity of the investigation.  Which is exactly what the IG report says. 

This is why Nunes' memo was a dud when it finally dropped after we were promised a scandal bigger than watergate.  Its small fries compared to the enormity of what was being investigated.  And it is only being amplified again by Republicans (specifically, Barr) in a well timed attempt to distract from Ukraine.

And if anyone still can't get a hold on the central lie here, note that Barr is out today repeating how the whole thing was "a completely bogus narrative that was largely fanned and hyped by a completely irresponsible press.”

You simply can not read the Mueller Report and honestly conclude that the investigation was "completely bogus."  Its a giveaway.  As I said this morning; honesty has gone out the window for this GOP.

English must be a foreign language to you.


I might have posted that response if I was feeling less generous to you.  Certainly would have been fair.  But I did not.

Or for that matter have paid any attention to the government's case against Roger Stone which I am assuming Barr is at least tangentially aware of.

Lynch needed to recuse herself from the investigation into Clinton because of a five minute conversation with Clinton’s husband on the tarmac of an airport.

Barr is implicated specifically as part of the whistleblower complaint he tried to bury, and on the Trump-Zelenski call which have led to articles of impeachment and should be the subject of a special council investigation and I have yet to hear a single Democrat call for him to recuse himself. 

It’s insane how Democrats consistently get lapped by Republicans on messaging.  That shit isn’t that hard.

Tea party.
Union busting.
Science denial/distortion
ALEC (buying legislators and judges, buying immunity from penalties for polluting, promoting white nationalism and Islamophobia, dismantling public education..when even Dow Chem detects a bad odor and stops donating to them, Koch Foundation always comes through with more money...)
Citizens for a Sound Economy—which launched the effort to repeal Glass-Steagall protections keeping banks from gambling in securities.
Etc.

In 1980, you may recall that David Koch was the Libertarian candidate for VPOTUS.  The party’s plans included the abolition of Medicare, Medicaid, social security (to be made voluntary), the Department of Transportation, the Federal Aviation Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Energy, the Food and Drug Administration, and the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The L party also sought to privatize all roads and highways, to privatize all schools, to privatize all mail delivery and, eventually, the repeal of all taxation.   Papa Fred liked to tell everyone that Eisenhower was a communist tool.   You heard that right.   Ike.  A Commie! 

But yeah, Kochs donated an exhibit at the NY Natural History museum....cause they're all about science...and the kids!

Harder than you think. The real world media is consumed with ‘both sides’ so it’s very easy for the GOP to just fucking lie and not get called on it consistently. They also lie constantly.

Their media operates on a separate plane of reality and it is all encompassing. GOP lies in our world, the reality based community, are gospel on Earth II.
