Ingraham: Prosecutors, politics and personal ambition


>>Laura: PROSECUTORS, POLITICS, AND PERSONAL AMBITION. THAT’S THE FOCUS OF TONIGHT’S ANGLE. AS A FORMER CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY, I SAW MY SHARE OF INDIVIDUALS AND COMPANIES CAUGHT IN THE CROSS HAIRS OF GOVERNMENT INVESTIGATORS WHO DESPERATELY WANTED A TROPHY ON THE WALL. WE KNOW THE SCENES. A CEO ARRESTED AND CUFFED AT HIS OR HER OFFICE FOR ALL THE EMPLOYEES TO SEE FOR MAXIMUM HUMILIATION. A PROSECUTOR HOLDING A PRESS CONFERENCE CLAIMING THE EVIDENCE WILL SHOW THAT SOME HIGH PROFILE PERSON IS GUILTY OF MYRIAD CRIMES. MEANING JAIL FOR THE REST OF HIS ADULT LIFE. TALL HIGH DRAMA. IT’S ALL LIKE AN EPISODE OF LAW & ORDER. NOW OF COURSE WE NEED PROSECUTORS TO HELP LOCK UP THE BAD GUYS, WHETHER THEY ARE WHITE-COLLAR CRIMINALS OR VIOLENT OFFENDERS. WHEN THEY ARE OPERATING PROFESSIONALLY, TALKING ABOUT PROSECUTORS, AND IN GOOD FAITH, THEY SHOULD BE RECOGNIZED FOR THE PUBLIC SERVICE THEY PROVIDE. BUT LONG BEFORE TODAY’S IG REPORT WAS RELEASED, COME ON, MOST OF US KNEW THE FBI’S HANDLING OF THE CLINTON EMAIL EXAMPLES OF HOW CASES SHOULD NOT BE HANDLED. OF COURSE, THE USUAL SUSPECTS SPENT MOST OF THE DAY DOWNPLAYING THE FINDINGS OF THE IG. THE IG FOUND NO POLITICAL BIAS. NO, IT IS JUST RUN-OF-THE-MILL INSUBORDINATION HERE.>>WE JUST GOT THE SAME KIND OF HAMMER YOU USED TO ANNEAL IN A PAINTING ON THE WALL. THE HILLARY CASE WAS PROPERLY DECIDED ON THE LAW. THAT’S HEADLINE NUMBER ONE. NUMBER TWO, NO INDICATION OR EVIDENCE THAT POLITICAL BIASES.>>DEEPLY DISTURBING THE REPUBLICANS REMAIN OBSESSED WITH UNDERMINING OUR INTELLIGENCE AND LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES.>>Laura: OKAY, NICE TRY, NANCY. THE IG’S FINDINGS SHOW THE OPPOSITE. AS WE DISCUSSED EARLIER, THE EVIDENCE SHOWS THAT FBI DIRECTOR JIM COMEY OPERATED ACCORDING TO HIS OWN SET OF RULES IN THE CLINTON EMAIL INVESTIGATION. “COMEY ADMITTED HE CONCEALED HIS INTENTIONS FROM THE DOJ UNTIL THE MORNING OF HIS PRESS CONFERENCE ON JULY 5, AND INSTRUCTED HIS STAFF TO DO THE SAME. WE FOUND IT WAS EXTRAORDINARY AND INSUBORDINATE FOR COMEY TO DO SO. WE ACKNOWLEDGE THAT COMEY FACED DIFFICULT CHOICES IN LATE OCTOBER 2016. HOWEVER, WE FOUND IT EXTRAORDINARY THAT COMEY ASSESSED THAT IT WAS VESTED THAT THE FBI DIRECTOR NOT SPEAK DIRECTLY WITH THE ATTORNEY GENERAL AND THE DEPUTY ATTORNEY GENERAL.” LIKE SO MANY PEOPLE IN THIS TOWN, HE THOUGHT, JIM COMEY, THAT HIS TITLE GAVE HIM A LICENSE TO IGNORE BASIC PROSECUTORIAL PROTOCOL. NO WONDER HE WASN’T ALL THAT KEEN ON PURSUING HILLARY’S USE OF AN UNSECURED SERVER GIVEN THE FACT THAT WE FOUND OUT TODAY THAT HE HIMSELF WAS USING A PERSONAL GMAIL ACCOUNT TO CONDUCT GOVERNMENT BUSINESS. EVEN HILLARY REFERENCED VAT IN A TWEET TODAY. AND IF YOU, LIKE I, THOUGHT COMEY CAME OFF AS INCURIOUS IN TELEVISION INTERVIEWS FOR THAT STUPID BOOK OF HIS, CHECK OUT THIS TWEET. HE SAID TODAY IN A TWEET “I RESPECT THE DOJ. IG OFFICE WHICH IS WHY I URGE THEM TO DO THIS REVIEW. THE CONCLUSIONS ARE REASONABLE EVEN THOUGH I DISAGREE WITH THEM EVEN THOUGH I DISAGREE WITH THE THEM. PEOPLE OF GOOD FAITH CAN SEE AN UNPRECEDENTED SITUATION DIFFERENTLY. I PRAY NO DIRECTOR FACES IT AGAIN. THANKS TO IG’S PEOPLE FOR HARD WORK.” HE LOST ME AT “PEOPLE OF GOOD FAITH.” NOTICE BY THE WAY HOW HE MAKES HIMSELF OUT TO BE THE VICTIM HERE. IT’S UNBELIEVABLE. COMEY SHOULD CHANGE HIS MIDDLE NAME TO HUBRIS. THE MAN HAS LEARNED ABSOLUTELY NOTHING FROM THIS EXPERIENCE. AND REMEMBER, BY THE WAY, THIS IS THE GUY WHO SIGNED OFF ON THREE FISA APPLICATIONS AND DIDN’T THINK IT WAS NECESSARY TO TELL THE FISA COURT THAT HILLARY PAID FOR THE STEELE DOSSIER. THIS IS THE SAME MAN WHO ALLOWED PETER STRZOK, THE FBI AGENT, TO CHANGE THE DESCRIPTION OF MRS. CLINTON’S USE OF THE PRIVATE SERVER FROM GROSSLY NEGLIGENT TO MERELY EXTREMELY CARELESS. SO AS NOT TO TRIGGER THE UNDERLYING CRIMINAL STATUTE. BUT OF COURSE THERE WAS THIS BREAKING NEWS TO COMPETE WITH THE IG RELEASE TODAY.>>THE NEW YORK ATTORNEY GENERAL HAD JUST ANNOUNCED A LAWSUIT AGAINST THE DONALD J. TRUMP FOUNDATION.>>FILED LESS THAN AN HOUR AGO, A 41 PAGE CIVIL COMPLAINT ALLEGING THAT THE DONALD J. TRUMP FOUNDATION WAS ACTUALLY AN EMPTY SHELL.>>NEW YORK’S ATTORNEY GENERAL IS SUING PRESIDENT TRUMP AND HIS THREE OLDEST CHILDREN ALLEGING “SELF-DEALING ANOTHER PERSISTENT ILLEGAL CONDUCT.”>>Laura: I’M SURE THIS IS ALL JUST COINCIDENCE, THE TIMING OF THE LAWSUIT. COME ON. AGAINST THE TRUMP FOUNDATION. IT’S BEYOND SUSPICIOUS. REMEMBER, IT COMES FROM THE NEW YORK ATTORNEY GENERAL’S OFFICE. CONSIDER THE SOURCE. DISGRACED FORMER ATTORNEY GENERAL OF NEW YORK ERIC SCHNEIDERMAN WHO YOU MIGHT REMEMBER SENT OUT A FUND-RAISING EMAIL RIGHT AFTER THE INVESTIGATION INTO THE FOUNDATION WAS OPENED. HE IS A TRULY ODIOUS FIGURE WHO ABUSED AND HUMILIATED HIS FEMALE VICTIMS AND THEN USED HIS OFFICE AND HIS POSITION TO THREATEN THEM INTO SILENCE. MARK MY WORDS. WE HAVEN’T HEARD THE LAST OF WHAT HE DID TO HIS VICTIMS. AND THE PERSON WHO CONTINUES HIS CRUSADE, BARBARA UNDERWOOD, WHO SET UP ON TAKING OVER FOR SCHNEIDERMAN, “I BELIEVE THIS JOB AT THIS MOMENT IN HISTORY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT JOB I HAVE EVER HAD.” YEAH, LITTLE SUBTLETY THERE. THINK ABOUT IT. DONALD TRUMP OPERATED A FOUNDATION THAT HAD ZERO OVERHEAD, NO ADMINISTRATIVE COSTS, AND GAVE AWAY MORE THAN $19 MILLION TO A VARIETY OF CHARITABLE CAUSES. TRUMP AND HIS COMPANIES PERSONALLY PORT $8 MILLION INTO THE FOUNDATION. NOW THERE WAS A MISTAKE AND CONTRIBUTION MADE TO PAT BONDI’S CAMPAIGN BUT IT WAS RECTIFIED ONCE IT WAS DISCOVERED. IN OTHER WORDS, THIS IS A PENNY-ANTE STUFF THAT WOULD NEVER BE PURSUED BY THE NEW YORK STATE OF ATTORNEY GENERAL’S OFFICE IF DONALD TRUMP HADN’T GOTTEN INTO POLITICS. IT’S ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF POLITICIZED LAW ENFORCEMENT, AND ABUSE OF PROCESS. THIS TIME IT WAS THROUGH A CIVIL ACTION ON THE STATE LEVEL. WHERE WERE THEY, BY THE WAY COME AT THE FEDERAL LEVEL WHEN THE CLINTON FOUNDATION WAS ACCEPTING FUNDS FROM FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS WHILE HILLARY WAS SECRETARY OF STATE? SOME OF THEM WANTS TO GET MEETINGS WITH HILLARY. MEANWHILE, COMEY AND HIS POLITICAL ACTIVISTS POSING AS AGENTS VENT THE LEGAL STANDARDS FOR HILLARY CLINTON, ALLOWING HER TO WALK FREE. AND THEY ASSUMED THAT SHE WAS GOING TO BE GOING INTO THE WHITE HOUSE. LET’S NOT FORGET. CLINTON IS SETTING UP THAT PRIVATE SERVER, MADE UP HER OWN RULES, JUSTICE COMEY DID IN CLEARING HER OF ANY CRIMINAL WRONGDOING. MY FRIENDS, THIS IS ALL A HIDEOUS PERVERSION OF JUSTICE. NOW FBI DIRECTOR CHRISTOPHER WRAY IS INSISTING THE IG REPORT CLEARS THE FBI, THOUGH, OF STRUCTURAL RESPONSIBILITY.>>NOTHING, NOTHING IN THIS REPORT IMPUGNS THE INTEGRITY OF OUR WORKFORCE AS A WHOLE.>>I’M SORRY. YOU ARE WRONG. THERE ARE CONSEQUENCES. THE CONSEQUENCES ARE THAT YOUR FELLOW CITIZENS QUESTION WHETHER OR NOT THEY CAN HAVE CONFIDENCE IN THE WORLD’S PREMIER LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY.>>Laura: REMEMBER WHEN JIM COMEY SAID THIS?>>IT MAKES ME MILDLY NAUSEOUS TO THINK WE MIGHT HAVE HAD SOME IMPACT ON THE ELECTION.>>Laura: [LAUGHS] IT MAKES ME WILDLY NAUSEOUS READING THIS IG REPORT AND LEARNING HOW COMEY AND HIS




Comments
  1. And what are sources and methods Comey used to usurp authority and practices when investigating Higgalry Gliftons email matter?

  2. How 'Deep' do CFR definitions have to go when applying the 'alleged' charges to severity of actions?
    If Regulations are That Far Off from a reality check as to a 'Reasonable' – whatever, then there is just Not any Reasonable anything in existence. What were the Regulations written for, THE MOVIES?!

  3. BARBRA UNDERWOOD IS HARVEY WIENSTEEN IN DRAG !!!!!!!THERE IS NO JUSTICE FOR REPUBLICANS, CONSERVATIVES, CHRISTIANS !!!!!!!!!

  4. No Laura, Big Jim Comey was not insubordinate. The IG report is BS. Just like it was BS that there was no political bias in these rogue agents. Comey didn't take it upon himself to free Hillary. He was protecting Lynch. The democrats did not want Lynch coming out after the Tarmac fiasco, and tell the cameras she was letting Clinton out of jail. So She had Comey do it, and like a good boy he took the heat. Being insubordinate is not a crime, but Lynch in a conspiracy to free her friend IS a crime.

  5. DJ Trump foundation is largely funded by DJ Trump's own money. No one on the foundation board has take a penny! All monies go to legitimate charities, most to our veterans assistance! Compare this to the Clinton "foundation". God help us!

  6. Well Inragham ..you could always go and prosecute the individuals yourself I GUESS. Maybe you could get Trump's buddy Hannity to give evidence LOL or his lawyer Cohen who is about to go to jail for 30 years.. or flip on Trump ..and your lover bot Hannity.

  7. No more America. Don't listen to her. She is full of it. Arm yourselves and implement your constitutional rights. Retake your government Fox is just as bad as the rest.

  8. Due process has failed. Trump needs to summarily fire Sessions, Wray, Rosenstein, Horowitz, Meuller, and anyone else involved in the original putsch against him or the cover-up of Hillary's crimes. Trump shouldn't worry about political consequences since his opposition already wants him impeached, they can't hate him any more no matter what he does. If he doesn't take decisive action, the republic is in jeopardy. These people will eventually get their way unless they are excised as the malignant cancer they represent.

  9. Abuse and misuse of this federal bureaucratic power (FBI) deserves special attention via terminations, legal proceedings plus rededication to honor and leadership to establish credibility.

  10. Wouldn't it be a good trick if the IG gave a 'soft' initial report, got them on his side to say publicly that the IG is honest and then hits them with some truth bombs of real info.

  11. Sorry but the FBI are vilant criminals. Politician's are the most vilant criminals out there they are no different than Ted Bundy himself.

  12. I don't get why she where's so much makeup instead of a a paper bag and you know what the way she talks is digusting.

  13. No bias ??? And yet he contradicts his own conclusions.

    …"Not only indicative of a biased state of mind but, even more seriously implies a willingness to take official action to impact the presidential candidate's electoral prosects."

  14. When i first heard about this today my first thought was how it will set a dangerous precedent, dangerous for the Clinton foundation, let's all hope so,there is nothing worse than a charity that only gives to itself, it's low down

  15. Rosenstein must have highlighted talking points for the democrats while scrubbing the report.
    How many of them have read the 500-plus page report?

  16. ****Dear Mr. president Trump, If you think the FBI is crooked, please take a look at the corrupt child support court system!!**** ⚖ ⚖ Time for the FBI to be held accountable for crimes against people!!

  17. Trump has a terrible judgement .His critical appointments is what's causing all these problems .He has exacerbated the problems in the govt institutions .Why would he appoint somebody like Wray Sessions,Tillerson and left Coney in the job for almost a year when he should have been fired on the first day ? Why did he say initially he did not want to hurt the Clintons and why hasn't he declassified the documents the members of the house want or instruct them to release it. I believe there is something there because it makes no sense,though he has done lots of good stuff but I don't think he has been a good president I believe he wanted to continue the corruption and play along but they kicked his teeth that's why he is squealing

  18. If Mueller is still considering presenting the Russia Witch Hunt Case in front of a jury it would be good idea to hand out vomit bags and nose plugs before presenting the "evidence" the foul stench of CONTEMPT PRIOR TO INVESTIGATION is all over it.

  19. The FBI should be closed down. They do not support Trump. Trump is the one who runs this country and those who do not follow him need to be eliminated.

  20. Suing the President and his family is to switch folks attentions off of the IG release and try to turn the public against the TRUMPS…If you haven't worked that out by now, there's no more can be done to PROVE this is all just a set up and they are still HELL BENT on getting rid of Trump…

  21. Thumbs down is from illegals and their families and kids and dreamers and daca, Mr useless Omama, R Tranny, Chelsea, Madonna

  22. Trump used his foundation like a piggybank. Trump needs to learn you can't go around making your own rules. He didn't even try to hide it.

  23. Yea Russia investigation did not work so now let's investigate Trump foundation let's spend money another year and let's make sure we hire dirty mueller to investigation . Damm the swamp still trying to get my President but God is with him and us, we will drain the swamp 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡IG report is bias 101%

  24. Barbera Underwood is the same swamp rat that called the constitutional protection against double jeopardy a "loophole" after Trump pardoned Desouza.

  25. There’s another IG report coming, on the Clinton Foundation.
    This is a jump the gun on this charity, because that Clinton one is about to look fucked up. This is funny.

  26. This is beyond absurdity! *There's one man in Washington who's trying to protect us. James Comey. Comey has but one priority. The security and safety of the American people. Political machinations do not come into his job. He's the FBI director regardless of who the President is*". Fox News Dec 2015.

  27. The communist elites are very scared right now. If WE ever get the chance to take charge of the retribution, WE will get "REAL ROMAN" on their back sides.

  28. The left and doors crooked cops like James Comey crooked politicians like crooked Hillary MS-13 gang members and despise the best president we've ever had think about that they wanted America to be a hell hole

  29. It’s clear and what the MSM has proved once again is that they are controlled by the corrupt Deep State/the higher ups of the FBI, CIA, NSA, DNC, GOP never Trumpers…and giving them (MSM) the false narrative to put out on the IG report spewing out propaganda, deception and confusion so to keep the truth from the USA people. The MSM continue to minimize what the Deep State has done and that it is worst then Watergate what they (the Deep State) have done to President Trump. These people must be held accountable and I don’t mean that they should just be fired! They must lose all Federal benefits and serve time behind bars.

  30. Clinton and Comey are scot free, Trumps ‘charity’ now belongs to the NY AG 😂🤣😂🤣🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸👍

  31. so what happens next? We wait for 18 months for them to be prosecuted? Do away with the small talk, let's see these FBI ass holes, handcuffed and escorted off to Folsom Prison.

  32. He has been involved in 1,300 lawsuits over the last 18 years, including a fraudulent university that was still ongoing during the campaign. Over a dozen women have accused him of sexual assault or misconduct including an ex-wife who used the word “rape”. His businesses have repeatedly declared bankruptcy, including a casino. He has told an average of 6.5 lies per day since taking office, for a total of over 3,000 to date. All Hail Draft Dodger Donald🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  33. HOROWIST AND.COMEY ARE.COMRAD…SO YOU YOU.L BE JUDGE…AMERICA WERE IS LIBERTY JUSTICE??? ONLY ON HILLARY.. COMEY AND THE REST..

  34. If all those agents who took bribes for leaks are not dismissed they will assume its a green light to continue. More will join them and the rest will feel they can no longer be agents. Coming back from it will take decades, if ever.

  35. im personally tired of this absolvement of the 'rank and file' that did not speak up, did not take action and acted like 1939 nazi's, just following orders. if they are so pure and above reproach they need to confess.

  36. Funny how Faux Snews is avoiding any mention of Manafort being tossed in jail and Cohen ready to flip like the Great Orange Ones “hair” in the wind. LOCK THEM UP! Yayyyyy HAHAGAHAHA oh and before you sycophantic bootlicking simpletons start your shit : yea yea Hillary lost , deep state, fake news yada yada. Get some new material. Throw Donny and Hillary in the same cell.

  37. Conservatives need to make loud and provocative claims in the MSM as the left does. Pelosi unashamedly proclaims that the Republicans are trying to undermine the system and we do nothing to challenge her (I won't even bother mentioning that an objective press would be the first to challenge her to back that up). The facts stand in direct opposition to that claim and we remain "civil" while we know that the MSM will never raise the issues brought up in the report. A bold accusation that will leave them no option but to dispute it must be made to move this into the court of public awareness and opinion. This is all we have left since the legal system seems to be corrupt from the very top. That is when the facts get to come out for the people to judge for themselves. As things stand, we tiptoe around the "classified" aspect of certain information and so never challenge the bald faced lies that the MSM pundits would have us believe are the true results of the report – they clearly consider us too stupid to understand for ourselves what is written and what it means. What can possibly be classified about the FBI's lawyers making clear and biased statements and pursuing a concerted effort to undermine Trump and ultimately remove him. Isn't it telling that among all the FBI people involved in the investigation, NOT ONE has shown any bias or support for Trump, nor even expressed the slightest disdain for Hillary's antics. What more need be said about the objectivity of the investigation?

  38. Oh sure, it is all Hillary's fault: Benghazi, her emails, Iran-Contra, global warming, she did it all. "Lock her up" they shouted. And now Paul Manaford is locked up.

  39. I stopped reading the IG report after I had to barf when it came to the IG opinion which agreed with Comeys conclusion that to exonerate Chilton that 5 statues had to apply for her to be guilty. That is a false statement. Only one Statue stated willful misconduct. It only has to be true for one. I needed to go through the process three times in my life to get a security clearance. This taints the report. Just like the Dossier taints the whole Mueller report.

  40. How much of Laura's video did you watch and listen closely to?
    1. Do you remember how Comey contacted Congress (outside of the chain of command) and informed them that new evidence had surfaced that needed to be reviewed concerning the email scandal?
    2. Do you remember when this happened?
    3. Did Hillary's numbers start to tank after that unauthorized disclosure?
    4. Did Hillary win?

    Answers:
    1. Yes. Many of us could not understand why he did what he did. Now we know.
    2. It was 28 October 2016
    3. Yes
    4. No

    Was the FBI misled? Yes. Has it happened before? Yes. Was it a criminal offence? Probably not.

    As for the Trump Foundation you heard the numbers distributed. 84% of the monies distributed came from Trump companies. Pleas ask me how I got that figure, please (hint: Laura gave us the numbers).

    Rich folks have many ways to avoid taxes. Out President pays no Federal Income Tax, and hasn't for some time now. Rich people can create Foundations to funnel money without financial responsibility. Rich people can create trusts that shield their heirs from liability.

    Are you rich?
    Do you pay taxes?
    Do hide your expenditures behind Foundations or trusts?

    Laura is rich (remember she told you about her legal experience).
    I think Laura pays her taxes just like you and I do.
    I think Laura knows from her legal experience that you can get caught if you try to dance to close to the edge of the ice.

    If not, why do you choose to believe in Donald Trump?

  41. Pelosi=Moron! Disgrace!! Remove Pelosi from office now. Term limits for a Lazy Corrupt congress now. Two terms.

  42. Thank you for standing for truth, Laura Ingraham. Please keep being you. You are a blessing to this nation and are so very much appreciated. (As an aside, you get prettier every day. A beautiful face for a beautiful soul.) May God bless you and yours.

  43. What Fox News needs to do is look at both sides of the coin. Donald Trump has placed not only the DOJ but the entire country in a horrible position simply because he is a megalomaniac with dictatorship on his mind.
