Schiff: House in the dark about DOJ’s 2016 campaign spying probe

Attorney General Bill Barr said he wanted to find out whether there was inappropriate government “spying” on the Trump campaign.

By NATASHA BERTRAND

Updated

2019-06-19T02:48-0400

The House Intelligence Committee has “very little visibility” into the three Justice Department investigations into the intelligence officials who launched the Russia probe, the panel’s chairman Adam Schiff said on Wednesday.

It’s a situation that has Schiff concerned, given his fears that the probes are politically motivated.

Story Continued Below

“It’s an effort to amplify the counter-narrative, and to ignore what the Russians did, and what they will do in the next election,” Schiff said at a National Press Club event on Wednesday. “We’ve already seen a disturbing erosion of our checks and balances” with regard to the White House’s contact with DOJ, he added.

DOJ’s Office of the Inspector General has been investigating the origins of the Russia probe since last year. Attorney General Bill Barr launched a parallel investigation in May, tapping John Durham to spearhead the inquiry around the time special counsel Robert Mueller was wrapping up the two-year probe, which concluded Trump’s campaign did not criminally conspire with Russian intermediaries to disrupt the 2016 election. Barr said he wanted to find out whether there was inappropriate government “spying” on the Trump campaign that drove suspicions of a Kremlin link.

According to The New York Times, Durham’s efforts have since zeroed in on the CIA analysts responsible for the conclusion that Russian President Vladimir Putin interfered in the 2016 election specifically to help Trump win. The focus has alarmed some in the national security community who worry that Durham’s probe will cast doubt on the apolitical nature of intelligence gathering and give credence to the president’s misleading claims that Obama-era officials tried to sabotage his campaign.

Those fears have been exacerbated by Trump’s decision to give Barr sweeping declassification authority, a power usually delegated to intelligence leaders for their own evidence.

Schiff indicated that, despite asking the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the Justice Department to keep him informed about any official declassification requests from Barr, the House Intelligence Committee — which oversees the intelligence community — remains largely in the dark about what the agencies are having to produce and whether their cooperation is voluntary or being compelled.

“I have discussed personally with the Director of National Intelligence [Dan] Coats my profound concern about what Bill Barr is doing in particular,” Schiff said. “Namely, his desire to provide cover to the president by investigating the investigators.”

Others are less anxious about Durham’s probe, noting that the CIA has been investigated by Durham before and is accustomed to this kind of oversight. They point to 2008, when Attorney General Michael Mukasey appointed Durham to conduct a criminal investigation into the destruction of torture tapes made by the CIA years earlier. That probe was expanded and later resulted in full criminal investigations into the deaths of two detainees, which ultimately wrapped in 2012 with no charges brought against anyone in the agency.

It’s unclear, though, what mandate Durham is operating under and whether he is looking at the intelligence agencies with an eye to recommending criminal charges. He has not been appointed to lead a criminal investigation, and the Justice Department has formally described the inquiry as only as a “review.” Durham also won’t be leaving his day job as the U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut.

Schiff, meanwhile, said he is still trying to get answers from the FBI about the counterintelligence findings of Mueller’s investigation, and whether the counterintelligence investigation launched in early 2017 into Trump himself was ever formally closed.

While the FBI has “started to provide some answers” and increased briefings, Schiff said, they’ve been reluctant to go into any detail. “They’re just telling us about process,” Schiff said. “Like everything else, it’s like pulling teeth, and our patience is growing fatigued at this point.”

U.S. Senator Proposes Law To Remove Big Tech’s Legal Immunity Over User Content

  •  
  •  
  •

Michael_Novakhov
shared this story
.

U.S. Senator Josh Hawley, known for his views on holding Big Tech to account, has announced that he is introducing legislation that threatens the business models of leading technology companies including Facebook, Google and Twitter. The proposal would remove the immunity in place under Section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act. This protects the companies from liability for the content posted by users, essentially a “post-office defense.” To escape the loss of protection, companies will need to “submit to biannual audits to prove their algorithms and content-removal practices are politically neutral.”

Hawley is not the first politician to attack Section 230. Social media has come in for increasing criticism in the last year as the prevalence of terrorist content and hate speech has been exposed by the media. Matters came to a head with the terrorist attack in Christchurch, New Zealand, which was live streamed on Facebook, leading to a series of admissions by leading social media platforms as to the challenges involved in policing content. Leading politicians including Ted Cruz, Nancy Pelosi and Elizabeth Warren have hammered the companies for the content on their sites and the seeming lack of genuine will to solve the problem.

“With Section 230,” Hawley said in a statement, “tech companies get a sweetheart deal that no other industry enjoys – complete exemption from traditional publisher liability in exchange for providing a forum free of political censorship. Unfortunately, and unsurprisingly, big tech has failed to hold up its end of the bargain.”

The proposed legislation would see Big Tech “having to prove to the FTC by clear and convincing evidence that their algorithms and content-removal practices are politically neutral,” while “preserving existing immunity for small and medium-sized companies.” The bill would only apply to companies “with more than 30 million active monthly users in the U.S., more than 300 million active monthly users worldwide, or who have more than $500 million in global annual revenue.” Clearly, that would trap all the household names in its net.

The proposed bill promises to trigger a highly emotive debate. One group campaigning against the legislation is Americans for Prosperity, backed by the Koch brothers, which said ahead of Hawley’s announcement that “eroding the crucial protections that exist under Section 230 creates a scenario where the government has the ability to police your speech and determine what you can or cannot say online. Senator Hawley has argued that some tech platforms have become too powerful, but legislation like this would only cement the market dominance of today’s largest firms.”

Hawley has painted himself as one of the leading U.S. advocates for using the law to control Big Tech. In addition to content issues, he has also raised the specter of the U.S. industry’s relationship with China. Earlier this year he publicly lambasted Google for its work with China’s technology industry that indirectly benefited the country’s military, while turning down development contracts with the U.S. Department of Defense. This week he questioned Google’s links to China, asking whether a Google Translate error that favored the authorities instead of the protestors during the Hong Kong demonstrations was deliberate.

“There’s a growing list of evidence that shows big tech companies making editorial decisions to censor viewpoints they disagree with,” Hawley said. “Even worse, the entire process is shrouded in secrecy because these companies refuse to make their protocols public. This legislation simply states that if the tech giants want to keep their government-granted immunity, they must bring transparency and accountability to their editorial processes and prove that they don’t discriminate.”
