DOJ quietly removes FISA official

Conservative TreehouseRumor in the DC grapevine is that a few weeks ago Tashina Guahar was quietly removed from her position as lawyer for the DOJ National Security Division (in charge of FISA applications). This removal happened immediately after IG Michael Horowitz submitted his first draft report to Attorney General Bill Barr for classification review. Ms. Gauhar now reportedly works for Boeing.

Tasha's name showed up occasionally related to SpyGate, notably AG Session's recusal for SpyGate related matters. Following that thread far enough leads to the Assange indictment, suggesting it was a move intended to keep Assange quiet -- something that I suspected at the time. This is supposition rather than confirming evidence, though.

It does suggest that the ever-looming FISA report from IG Horowitz is beginning to have consequences.
