Obama’s Justice Dept. feuded with FBI,
agents quit as politics played larger role

Washington Times, by Jeff Mordock

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 4/16/2018 6:19:47 PM

Acrimony between the FBI and Department of Justice was so bad in the waning days of the Obama Administration some agents quit the bureau, a former G-man said. Feuds over the direction of investigations — and particularly some of the high-profile politically-involved probes — began to build up as the 2016 election approached, and as the FBI felt pressure from its political masters at the department. Agents in field offices did not trust department lawyers they viewed as Washington bureaucrats, while the department’s headquarters, known in the business as Main Justice, felt rank-and-file agents weren’t following orders and, at times,

One of the key parts of this article is the last paragraph where it says Sessions needs to take charge and get the FBI and DOJ straightened out. Sessions is too weak -- I won´t hold my breath.

I don’t know what Sessions’ background was before being elected to Congress, but too many of these Congress-critters lack the real world, hands on experience to do what’s necessary. This isn’t the case with all Cabinet members, and the ones with deeper experience seem generally to have fared better so far.

Now I know why the independent FBI was put under the DOJ after the goobermint reorganized after 9/11. It was to allow corruption to roam free.

FTA: “It has to be Sessions,” he said. “The bureau reports to him and the Justice Department reports to him, yet he’s been silent on the issue. He needs to be a strong attorney general.”

Sessions is silent on most things. As he probably should be.

FTA: Mr. Adams said it could take years to repair the division, and it could require a housecleaning of leadership at both the FBI and Justice Department.

“The problem is so vast and deeply imbedded in the Justice Department, it will be an extremely difficult thing to dislodge,” Mr. Adams said.


Yet apparently the AG is supposed to somehow get this done yesterday. In my lifetime I´ve never seen such a total train wreck like Sessions has run into not to mention the AG has many other responsibilities, more mundane perhaps but sill important. Whether or not he can fix this, I don´t know. I do know he is smart, honest and capable. And he is loyal to President Trump. Maybe someone else could do the job better but considering the sheer magnitude of corruption I don´t see how anyone could do it faster. Just because Sessions is not blabbering daily about what he is doing does not mean he´s doing nothing.

AG Sessions can only do so much. One problem is that even if he were to fire every employee at DOJ and replace them, odds are that the vast majority of newly hired attorneys would be liberal and the non-attorney staff hired from the DC metro area would be liberal, too. Conservatives are a small minority here in Wash, DC and that is something no one can change.

FBI has always been part of the DOJ - not just since 911.

I think The President has given Sessions ample time to prove he can handle things at Justice. He has failed. We need a fearless street fighter in that AG Seat. One who is vocal and unafraid to go toe to toe with Democrats. One who begins a cleaning out of Justice! Get rid of the Obama holdovers! I hope that happens soon! It´s time!

This problem lies squarely on the bony little shoulders of the Kenyan disgrace, encouraging a racist attorney general to enforce his racist bias on law enforcement. His pawprints are visible all over the place but he´s still in his man-cave, feet propped up on the coffee table, running a shadow government. LOCK HIM UP.

This also explains why the top echelons of the FBI are liberal, incompetent dumbasses, all the good ones have left in disgust.

President Trump lashed out at “the dishonest media” in defense of his longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen, who is under pressure from prosecutors in the wake of the FBI raid on his office and home last week. “The New York Times and a third rate reporter named Maggie Habberman, known as a Crooked H flunkie who I don’t speak to and have nothing to do with, are going out of their way to destroy Michael Cohen and his relationship with me in the hope that he will ‘flip,’” Trump tweeted from his motorcade in Florida Saturday in the first of

Friday on New York City’s WABC 770 AM’s “Bernie and Sid in the Morning,” NBC’s “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd criticized Fox News for not taking action against host Sean Hannity when he did not disclose he was a client of Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen while commenting on the FBI raids on Cohen’s office. Todd said, “Sean Hannity can do what he wants to do, but I’m surprised Fox isn’t making him, at a minimum, disclose a conflict every time he talks about this.” Todd then denounced a post on Hannity’s website, “The Utter Hypocrisy of Chuck Todd,” which

Rush Limbaugh on his April 19 show said the important news in the report of Inspector General Horowitz´s report is the August 12, 2016 call to McCabe from the Obama DOJ regarding the Clinton Foundation investigation. Limbaugh believes that it was Sally Yates, of the Obama DOJ, who called McCabe to tell him they were "concerned" about the investigation. Horowitz found that McCabe lacked candor in describing how he authorized his in-house FBI special counsel (not Mueller) to reveal the phone call to Wall Street Journal reporter Devlin Barrett. By doing so, McCabe confirmed there was an FBI investigation of

First-term Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is emerging as a Democratic presidential contender in 2020. However, according to Politico, her own voters in California do not really know much about her. In an article titled “Kamala Harris’ rapid rise confounds California,” Politico’s David Siders writes: Kamala Harris has been called “the female Barack Obama.” She’s built a national following with her outspoken criticism of Donald Trump and prolific fundraising for fellow Democrats. But the California senator’s rapid rise — she’s just 15 months into her first term — has created an awkward issue: Even as progressives tout her as one of

Donald Trump’s long-planned visit to Britain is back on, the Mail can reveal today. In a major boost to relations between London and Washington, the US President is expected to come to the UK for several days this summer.

Randa Jarrar, an English professor at the school (also known as California State University at Fresno), sparked outrage Tuesday just hours after the former first lady died at age 92, writing a number of tweets attacking Bush and the family. “Barbara Bush was a generous and smart and amazing racist who, along with her husband, raised a war criminal.

A California school district says that parents can’t opt out of a new sex education course that will deal with abortion, homosexuality and transgender issues. California passed a law called the California Healthy Youth Act in 2015 to promote “healthy attitudes” about “gender [and] sexual orientation.” The law is meant to teach students about the “effectiveness and safety of all FDA-approved contraceptive methods” and allow for “objective discussion” about “parenting, adoption, and abortion.” The law also gives parents the ability to opt-out of this education and said that the “pupil” shall not be punished academically in any way if they don’t

Various reports in American and South Korean state media Friday evening indicated that North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un announced the halt of nuclear and missile tests in his country. The reports did not specify whether the tests would conclude permanently. The South Korean newswire service Yonhap reports that the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) published the announcement from Kim, which read, “from April 21, North Korea will stop nuclear tests and launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles.” “The North will shut down a nuclear test site in the country’s northern side to prove the vow to suspend

The Democratic National Committee filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit Friday against the Russian government, the Trump campaign and the WikiLeaks organization alleging a far-reaching conspiracy to disrupt the 2016 campaign and tilt the election to Donald Trump. The complaint, filed in federal district court in Manhattan, alleges that top Trump campaign officials conspired with the Russian government and its military spy agency to hurt Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and help Trump by hacking the computer networks of the Democratic Party and disseminating stolen material found there. “During the 2016 presidential campaign, Russia launched an all-out assault on our democracy, and it found

Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently told the White House he might have to leave his job if President Trump fired his deputy, Rod J. Rosenstein, who oversees the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to people familiar with the exchange. Sessions made his position known in a phone call to White House counsel Donald McGahn last weekend, as Trump’s fury at Rosenstein peaked after the deputy attorney general approved the FBI’s raid April 9 on the president’s personal attorney Michael Cohen. Sessions’s message to the White House, which has not previously been reported, underscores the political firestorm

First Lady Melania Trump has not graced the cover of a single magazine in the United States since her husband took office over a year ago.

The past 12 hours brought two very big revelations involving former FBI director James B. Comey, President Trump and the Russia investigation, and they must be looked at side by side to fully grasp their collective importance. Comey’s memos of his conversations with Trump have leaked in full. This came after Republicans threatened to subpoena them from Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, leading him to release them to Congress. Comey confirmed to Rachel Maddow that before getting fired, he ordered an internal investigation into whether Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani had been privately tipped off by people in the FBI two weeks

New York set aside $10 million for the legal defense of immigrants targeted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement just days after ICE announced the arrest of hundreds of people in the state. The Liberty Defense Project will ensure legal rights are being represented, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said. It was launched last year, but it needs the additional funds in light of what state officials described as “overly aggressive tactics” from ICE. “ICE’s hyper-aggressive raids on hardworking New Yorkers are immoral and un-New York, and we stand more determined than ever to support the rights of all immigrants in the Empire State
