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.

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.

One day in July demonstrated the identity crisis facing Kansas Democrats as they seek to capture a congressional seat for the first time in a decade. Roughly 2,000 people packed into a swampy-hot hall at the Reardon Convention Center in Kansas City, Kan., Friday night to hear U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, a self-described Democratic socialist, as he led a rally for Brent Welder, a Bonner Springs attorney mounting a campaign for Kansas’ 3rd District on an unabashedly progressive platform. In recent elections, Welder said, the party failed to beat Republican U.S. Rep. Kevin Yoder because it picked moderate candidates with

Well, at least Whoopi Goldberg didn´t hold up a mock severed head representing President Trump, but her verbal equivalent in profanely chastising guest Judge Jeanine Pirro shows how President Trump´s greatest accomplishment may be in pulling back the curtain and letting us see what delusional loons have been manipulating public opinion in this country as part of their attempt to fundamentally transform America into something resembling Berkeley, California – a sanctuary country full of defecating homeless people. Somewhat lost in the virulent exchange was Whoopi´s gross distortion of reality, following Saul Alinksy´s rule that you don´t debate your opponents –

A cardiologist who once treated former President George H.W. Bush has been fatally shot by a fellow bicyclist while riding through a Houston medical complex, and police are trying to determine if the shooting was random or a targeted act. The shooting happened around 9am Friday as Dr Mark Hausknecht was going northbound through the Texas Medical Center, according to Houston Police Executive Assistant Chief Troy Finner. ´The suspect was on a bicycle as well. Rode past the doctor, turned and fired two shots. The doctor immediately went down,´ Finner said. Hausknecht, 65, was hit at least once and taken

It’s because I voted for Donald Trump and that is not allowed in Hollywood."

Which would you say was more important, The Brady Bunch house going up for sale in Los Angeles or San Francisco giving illegal aliens the right to vote? Well, for ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News, it was the former. On Thursday, San Francisco began a campaign to register illegal immigrants so they could vote in school board elections. Instead of reporting on that controversial liberal policy, ABC and NBC chose to focus on frivolous topics like the Brady Bunch house.

A research group in New Jersey has taken a fresh look at postelection polling data and concluded that the number of noncitizens voting illegally in U.S. elections is likely far greater than previous estimates. As many as 5.7 million noncitizens may have voted in the 2008 election, which put Barack Obama in the White House. The research organization Just Facts, a widely cited, independent think tank led by self-described conservatives and libertarians, revealed its number-crunching in a report on national immigration.

President Trump’s longtime lawyer, Michael D.

The Justice Department is investigating Mr. Cohen’s involvement in paying women to tamp down embarrassing news stories about Mr. Trump ahead of the 2016 election.

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Three-year-old twins Zyler and Kadyn Sharpe scurried around the boys and girls clothing racks of a narrow consignment store filled with toys. Zyler, wearing rainbow leggings, scrutinized a pair of hot-pink-and-purple sneakers. Kadyn, in a T-Rex shirt, fixated on a musical cube that flashed colorful lights. At a glance, the only discernible difference between these fraternal twins is their hair — Zyler’s is brown and Kadyn’s is blond. Is Zyler a boy or a girl? How about Kadyn?

Since her surprise primary victory over 10-term Congressman Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th District, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been promoted by the media as the prototype of a new generation of young progressives destined to replace the leadership of the Democratic Party. Unfortunately for her media boosters, however, she keeps blowing her lines. It’s not just her rote advocacy of single-payer healthcare and guaranteed government jobs, or even that she backs wacky ideas like abolishing ICE and occupying airports — Ocasio-Cortez is genuinely clueless. She outed herself, in several recent interviews, as functionally illiterate in economics, international relations, and history.

In a lengthy statement issued late Wednesday, Waters, D-Calif., said she’d been notified about forthcoming protests by the Oath Keepers, which she described as "an anti-government militia" that´s staged armed protests in cities across the country. She warned her supporters against being "baited" into counter-demonstrations or confrontations with the organization, which she said has a track record of "violent and provocative behavior."

The federal government owns 640 million acres in the U.S., or roughly 28 percent of the nation’s entire landmass. The BLM manages 248.3 million acres of public land, more than any other agency, according to a March 2017 report by the Congressional Research Service.

Beating your wife is worse than protesting during the national anthem. So, too, is sexually assaulting a woman. While that might seem obvious, it needs to be clarified given The Associated Press´ report Thursday that the Miami Dolphins are now including protesting during the anthem on their list of "conduct detrimental to the club." Under NFL rules, that´s an offense punishable by a suspension of up to four games. The Dolphins later told the AP that "all options are still open." But to give you an idea of how heinous at least one NFL team sees trying to draw attention to racial and economic inequality, a four-game suspension is

Before the word "resignation" became a euphemism for being fired, it connoted a sense of public integrity and personal honor. Attorney General Elliot Richardson and his deputy, William Ruckelshaus, showed both qualities when they resigned from the Nixon administration during the Saturday Night Massacre in 1973. Jimmy Carter’s secretary of state, Cyrus Vance, did likewise when he resigned during the Iran hostage crisis in 1980. Assuming Mike Pompeo and John Bolton still have their own senses intact, they, too, should resign following the epic disgrace of the U.S.-Russia summit inHelsinki on Monday. So should their senior staff. I don’t suggest
