    Judge Orders ‘Archey Declarations’ (Descriptions of Comey Memos) Released

    Federal Judge Completely Rejects DOJ Argument –
    Orders ‘Archey Declarations’ (Descriptions of Comey Memos) Released…




    Posted on August 12, 2019 by sundance


    A U.S. District Judge has rejected the DOJ and FBI motion to block the release of the Archey Declarations (descriptions of Comey memos). [Background Here]


    In a strongly worded ruling (full pdf below) released moments ago, Federal Judge James Boasberg blasted the DOJ and FBI for attempting to change their filings, claim national security “sources and methods”, and block his prior court ruling – which instructed the DOJ to release the “Archey Declarations”. The judge is obviously angry:


    It must strike readers as erroneous “with the force of a five-week-old, unrefrigerated dead fish.”…






    [Backstory for those unfamilar] In the background of what was The Mueller Investigation, there was a FOIA case where the FBI was fighting to stop the release of the Comey memos. Within that courtroom fight Mueller’s lead FBI agent David Archey wrote a series of declarations to the court describing the content of the memos and arguing why they should be kept classified.


    The FOIA fight shifted; and the plaintiff, CNN, argued for public release of the content of the FBI agent’s descriptions, now known as the “Archey Declarations”.


    After a lengthy back-and-forth legal contest, on June 7th Judge James E Boasberg agreed to allow the FBI to keep the Comey memo content hidden, but instructed the DOJ/FBI to release the content of the Archey Declarations. On August 2nd the DOJ/FBI changed their position and claimed national security, “sources and methods” would be compromised by the release of the Archey Declarations.


    Today Judge Boasberg completely rejected their argument:




    Here’s the ruling:
    Must read, it’s a thing of beauty.

    OK, so what does this mean? Well, assuming the DOJ and FBI don’t try to appeal to a higher court…. it means we will get to see the Archey Declarations unredacted. It also means pressure on the inspector general to release the IG report on James Comey.





    The issue at hand is tangentially related to the current Inspector General carve-out report, through the aspect of the Comey Memos. We are currently anticipating a report from the OIG related to former FBI Director James Comey, his writing of the memos, and the leaking of some of those memos to the media via his friend Daniel Richman. {LINK}


    No-one knows the number of memos that James Comey has written. [We may get that answer in the IG report.] There are nine memos written by James Comey surrounding contact and conversations with President-elect and then President Trump (2016/2017).


    However, based on the court declarations by Mueller’s former lead FBI investigator David Archey, it sounds like there are many more memos than anyone currently understands; including memos about the investigation of candidate Trump, that were written during the “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation 2016 and 2017, that describe investigative details, sources, operations and code-names of intelligence assets used in the investigation.


    The Comey memos are not just about his contact with Donald Trump as a candidate, president-elect or president. The media keeps downplaying the memos as a few notes taken by the former FBI director, but all of the background information suggest the assembled writing is something more akin to a personal diary.


    My strongly researched suspicion is that James Comey kept detailed private notes of what was happening during the operation(s) against Donald Trump and his campaign team, both during the campaign and after the election when President Trump took office. Just take a look at how David Archey described the content and you can see those notes, now called memos, were in addition to FD 302 reports being filed by FBI officials.


    Why James Comey would keep detailed notes beyond what was being officially recorded in the FBI 302 reports is likely a question to be answered within the pending inspector general report. There’s a lot of sketchy non-transparent stuff going on amid all of this….


    This is an example of redacted information in the Archey Declarations that Judge Boasberg had ruled must be released with the redactions removed. This is what the DOJ and FBI are working to stop from being released to the public:

    The United States Department of Justice Civil Division, Federal Programs Branch, is fighting this court ordered release. The DOJ Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Division is Jody Hunt. That name might be familiar to you because Jody Hunt was Jeff Sessions former chief-of-staff.


    We previously anticipated Jody Hunt being involved with this current case; the DOJ and FBI attempt to block release of the memos and declarations. However, we have recently been informed that Jody Hunt was recused from the case by DOJ lawyers during the time when the Mueller investigation was ongoing.


    According to the latest information we can gather, DOJ Asst. Attorney James Burnham replaced Jody Hunt for all oversight issues in this court battle.

    The courtroom is an odd place, sort of like Alice In Wonderland.

    The government can cry "national security" as the secret password to cover their own asses, and a judge will normally buy that hook, line, and sinker without asking a single probing question. It really should be the other way around. Everything should be public as a matter of standard procedure. To get something classified as "national security" should be extremely difficult and require a great deal of effort by the government.

    Instead "national security" is like a secret password that get's you into the club.

    The whole truth, and nothing but the truth. That is justice.

    The FBI version; The hole truth, and nothing of the truth.

    The DOJ is in collusion with the treasonous conspirators, as is the FBI. Unless the NSA can be subpoenaed for the unredacted communications, the truth will never be known.

    The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.

    It doesn't matter. They declared that Trump is a Racist, and all his voters are white-Supremacists, so, anything "Illegal" done to him and his staff is Social Justice, and makes them into Heros.

    Once it has been determined that someone is a 'Racist', they have no rights.

    I don't understand why sources and related identity information can't be redacted. The subject matter of these investigations is not Secret.

    The FBI leaked that all over the place!

    This is exactly my concern. But it goes beyond individual Trump supporters. The left has convinced their morons that EVERYTHING good and honorable is at stake. And so they will feel justified in whatever election fraud they can pull off.... and as you say... they will be heros.
