GOP lawmakers cite new
allegations of political bias in FBI

The Hill [Washington, DC], by John Solomon

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/6/2017 9:05:42 PM

GOP lawmakers say they have heard new stories about political bias or interference within the FBI on the eve of new testimony Thursday by FBI Director Christopher Wray. Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) said Wednesday he interviewed a recently retired FBI supervisor who told him he was instructed by Deputy Director Andrew McCabe not to call the 2012 Benghazi attack an act of terrorism when distributing a report on the FBI findings to the larger intelligence community. The agent found the instruction concerning because his unit had gathered incontrovertible evidence showing a major al Qaeda figure had directed the attack and the information

Comments:
It is so sad and disturbing what has become of the once revered FBI. Andrew McCabe and his ilk are disgusting hacks who care more about politics that protecting their own country. It really is disgusting and infuriating. I will add Ron DeSantis as another of those few (like Devin Nunes) that I trust in congress.

Funny. We deplorables knew about this BEFORE all the inside information being released. Why do they think Trump won?

The bigger question is where have they been? What the he!! are they waiting for, and when are they going to act?

The American people have had enough of this nonsense! Prosecute, prosecute, prosecute!

The FBI and DOJ are hopelessly corrupt. They will never ever regain a good reputation. President Trump should suspend civil service rules and unions and fire every last one of them.

FTA: ´´...the backdrop of investigations whose ferocity seemed to depend on the target: the Clinton case was investigated with an eye towards how to exonerate her and her associates, while the Russia investigation is being conducted using scorched earth tactics that seek to find anything to use against Trump associates,” DeSantis told The Hill.´´

Does anyone here find that to be a new and shocking thought? Been this way for decades because the Stupid Party wet their undies and hide under their desks anytime the stinkin´ media say/print a harsh word about them. Is it possible that maybe a few of them are finally growing a set of mini-clankers?

Our intel structure and the rule of Law are crumbling. We are in a very dangerous place. Something must give. Trump is a leader, like him or not, so he must lead. He cannot interfere but he can get others to clean up this swamp cesspool. He can fire the entire FBI and bring in new people if he wants to.

Trump? You listening?

Im tired of the platitudes about how the FBI has many good and honorable employees. That most are doing a great job. Well, fine. Probably true.

However... where are the ones that were just under the level of Comey, McCabe, Rosenstein and others that were making the decisions to run this absurd investigation? Let one of the "honorable" employees come forward with the truth. I seem to recall at the time how there were many in the FBI that were upset at Comey and what he was doing. Come out... come out wherever you are!

The greatest danger this country faces is from within, yes Capitan obvious has spoken. Where are we going to find principled people who are dedicated to the rule of law? The pool of people to draw from to become the next generation of FBI agents and other critical roles have been raised in an environment where the only guiding principles and values are loyalty to the socialist progressive leftist cult. They care not about hypocrisy. They see no problem forcing a Christian to participate in a same sex marriage ceremony but wouldn’t dream of coercing a Muslim into participating in a Jewish ceremony, or forcing a barber to sculpt a swastika. We see that as hypocrisy and inconsistency but they do not. It is totally consistent with their progressive leftist socialist values.

We grew up with loyalty to our faith, our family, and our constitution. They have grown up with loyalty to the cult first second and third under the guiding principle that the ends justify the means.
How many of these elitists are in the FBI and if we were to eradicate them who would replace them, more brainwashed snowflakes?

"FBI and DOJ, the heart of the swamp." To me that´s the post of the day!

When law enforcement is corrupt and unethical then it opens the door to illegal conspiracies and collaboration against perceived foes ie Republicans. The Democrats lead by obama knew the way to accomplish their Unconstitutional "fundamental change" of America was to take control of the DOJ and FBI by placing sycophants in charge willing to violate existing laws in order to implement their leftist ideology. Will there be a day of reckoning? I hope so but doubt it.

Yes, the release of texts sent between top FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page show that both loathed Donald Trump while they were working on investigations involving Trump as a presidential candidate and later as president. Of course, lots of federal employees loathe Trump. (Snip) More troubling, in the set of texts released Tuesday night, is a single message, from Strzok to Page, dated Aug. 15, 2016.

From the House, to the Senate, to the President, Republicans are doing everything they can to sell their tax plan to a clearly skeptical electorate. For House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), that meant a pop in on Fox News Wednesday to speak with Dana Perino on The Daily Briefing. And it became clear at the beginning of the six-minute conversation that this was not going to be a probing interview. The questions were amiable from the outset. But at approximately the 3:25 mark of the video above, the segment veered toward full-on choreography — and bad choreography, at that. Perino set up

Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson sued Fox News host Jeanine Pirro Tuesday, claiming she defamed him on national television by saying he’d incited violence against police. McKesson’s action is one of a series of lawsuits stemming from BLM protests in Louisiana against 2016 shooting of Alton Sterling. (Snip) Pirro referenced this lawsuit on the show “Fox and Friends” earlier this fall. “In this particular case, DeRay Mckesson, the organizer, actually was directing people, was directing the violence,” Pirro said. “You’ve got a police officer who was injured, he was injured at the direction of DeRay Mckesson, DeRay Mckesson walks away with

The text messages between FBI Agent Peter Strozk and his mistress, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, have been released to both Fox News and CBS. SEE HERE and SEE HERE. The messages reflect a strong bias against President Trump. However, the bigger story is not the anti-Trump bias within the text communication, the BIGGER story is why the Department of Justice, Office of Inspector General (OIG), began even looking at Agent Peter Strozk’s communication in the first place. Remember, the original mandate by the Inspector General’s office was initiated to review and discover any politicization of the FBI and/or DOJ officials.

Special prosecutors, investigators, and counsels are usually a bad idea. They are admissions that constitutionally mandated institutions don’t work — and can be rescued only by supposed superhuman moralists, who are without the innate biases inherent in human nature. The record from Lawrence Walsh to Ken Starr to Patrick Fitzgerald suggests otherwise. Originally narrow mandates inevitably expand — on the cynical theory that everyone has something embarrassing to hide. Promised “short” timelines and limited budgets are quickly forgotten. Prosecutors search for ever new crimes to justify the expense and public expectations of the special-counsel appointment. Soon the investigators need to

"Mr. Trump continues to exhibit paranoia about American intelligence agencies," wrote the NeverTrump conservative Max Boot in the New York Times a week or so before the president took office. "Consumed by his paranoia about the deep state, Donald Trump has disappeared into the fog of his own conspiracy theories," declared the Times´ Maureen Dowd. "Paranoia seizes Trump´s White House," reported Politico, noting the suspicion that "career intelligence operatives are working to undermine the new president." Actually, they were.

A mountain of evidence points to a single fact: Russia meddled in the U.S. presidential election of 2016. In both classified and public reports, U.S. intelligence agencies have said Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered actions to interfere with the election. Those actions included the cyber-theft of private data, the placement of propaganda against particular candidates, and an overall effort to undermine public faith in the U.S. democratic process. Members of Congress, both Democrats and Republicans, have held open and closed door hearings to probe Russia’s actions. The congressional investigations are ongoing.
