Wray: FBI Agents Involved In FISA
Debacle Have Been Referred To
Bureau’s Disciplinary Office

Original Article

FBI Director Christopher Wray said Wednesday that the FBI agents involved in the surveillance of Carter Page who are still at the bureau have been referred to the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility for possible disciplinary action. During a House Judiciary Committee hearing, Wray noted that most of the FBI officials who oversaw Crossfire Hurricane, which involved surveillance of Page, have left the bureau and are no longer subject to disciplinary review. He said the FBI personnel who worked on that probe and who still have jobs at the FBI are mostly line-level agents.

Comments:

See? See? Didn't I tell you? I told you Fey Wray would jump all over this scandal! Every single member of this treasonous coup plot is going to have a strongly-worded letter placed in his personnel folder. What a guy!

Even though they do not work for the FBI any more (surprise), that should not absolve them from criminal prosecution.

And maybe they'll put a strong letter in their personnel file. And propose that they get some FBI Profiles in Courage award. I put the over-and-under on Chris Wray's firing date as late November 2020.

there is a monumental difference between discipline and j8ustice. someone should point that out to Wray. As an arbitrator, I dealt with discipline. But from time to time, I tried cases where a criminal referral was appropriate. those cases ranged from lower level crimes - assault, theft, to a case of manslaughter. If the FBI fires an employee for bad behavior, and the behavior is criminal - perjury for example, or murdering people 60 people at the Branch Davidian compound, or at Ruby Ridge, those are crimes, and call out for JUSTICE. Wray works in the Justice Department. Foes he even know where he works?

Not Good Enough Wray. You and all corrupt agents need to be sown the door. Now when is that gonna happen Mr. President? We have been put through years of torture thanks to these swamp rats, and you keep promising reports. Stop the Dithering! Put in acting heads if you have to. Obama did and not a whisper was spoken

BFD. No significant impact on those that are responsible. Wholesale house cleaning of the upper echelons of the FBI, NSC, and the DOJ is what is needed.

You mean it has taken 5 years for the FBI to write memos for the personnel files of the remaining FBI officials who: A. Conspired to ignore Hillary Clinton’s bribe taking and national security violations? Comey’s FBI began its Hillary investigation in 2015 in order to not avoid indicting her in 2016. B. Began Crossfire Hurricane in May 2016 by deciding to entrap Carter Page and George Papadopoulus with spies on loan from the CIA. And all the while shutting the Bureau’s eyes to the criminal activities of past and current FBI officials. Wow! What an law enforcement bureau. And there is nothing in place to prevent the FBI from doing this again. Note: I don’t believe personnel memos are subject to FOIA requests, so we’ll never know what drivel Wray concocted.

Everynne at the FBI who aided and abetted this should be doing 3 to 5 years in prison for abusing their office. The ringleaders should be sent up the river for 20 years. And the very top echelon, the Hillary's and the Obama's and Brennans et al should undergo a very public trial for treason and sedition.

In the Disciplinary Office where the referral can be buried under the weight of bureaucracy and will never see an indictment and conviction. The public is tired of it! We need to see prison time for FBI criminals.

Discipline is for performance not criminal violations. Probable Cause is the first thing taught to cops. "Probable cause is a level of reasonable belief, based on facts." Facts certainly aren't based on opposition research, hearsay, or newspapers. Get a Federal Grand Jury.

Just wondering, could they revoke the retirement benefits from those who've left the FBI? And, trust that won't keep them all from civil lawsuits since Carter Page's civil liberties were violated, as were many others who were also investigated under the same false, corrupt, premise.

Director Wray "said the FBI personnel who worked on that probe and who still have jobs at the FBI are mostly line-level agents." I guess these are the hard-working, honest agents Hannity and others constantly refer to...and who still abide by their "blue omerta". Discipline for an attempted coup is a firing squad in many parts of the world. Life in a Super Max would be sufficient.

Part 2 is the strongly worded letters will be appealed to the union, which will take them to arbitration. Ultimately it will be quietly removed from the criminal's files and they will get promotions.

OOOOOH! The Discipline Office, boy THAT sounds scary. Maybe they will have to sit in the corner for an hour. They need to be IN PRISON, not in some FBI discipline, which no doubt has a absolute upper limit of being fired. This is ENTIRELY inadequate. They are criminals, and need to be behind bars, not fired, not demoted, or whatever penny-ante BS the Discipline Office can dream up.

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg saw a 6-point bump in the latest Hill-HarrisX survey of the Democratic presidential primary. The nationwide poll, which was released Friday, shows Bloomberg up from 5 percent to 11 percent support for the nomination nationally. The former New York City mayor is now in a dead heat for third place with top-tier candidate, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who also received 11 percent support. Biden, meanwhile, continues to lead the Democratic field with 28 percent followed by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) at 16 percent.

As the U.S. presidential race began roaring to life in 2016, authorities in the former Soviet republic of Latvia flagged a series of “ suspicious” financial transactions to Hunter Biden and other colleagues at a Ukrainian natural gas company and sought Kiev’s help investigating, according to documents and interviews. The Feb. 18, 2016 alert to Ukraine came from the Latvian prosecutorial agency responsible for investigating money laundering, and it specifically questioned whether Vice President Joe Biden’s younger son and three other officials at Burisma Holdings were the potential beneficiaries of suspect funds.

Republicans have had trouble mounting an effective defense on President Trump’s Ukraine call, because they haven’t put down their stakes on the most defensible ground. Complaints about House Democrats’ less-than-transparent impeachment process, though justified, were clearly perishable once Democrats adopted more regular proceedings. The contention that Trump’s phone call to the Ukrainian president was “perfect” was never going to withstand scrutiny. The line that there was “no quid pro quo” has become steadily less plausible

The Chicago Police Department told Fox News the beating is under investigation, but no one is in custody because the victim “was unable to identify his attacker(s) due to his injuries.” A police source told Fox that the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office “wouldn’t touch” the case if the victim can’t identify those accused or is unable to cooperate.

Romney’s vote to convict President Trump of “abuse of power” for inquiring into the flow of money from Ukraine into the pockets of the Bidens after the appearance that Vice President Joe Biden had directly intervened in Ukrainian internal affairs either to repay the favor or shield the corruption from sunlight, is among the most degraded public acts of a generation. Romney very clearly wants revenge. He lost the presidency in 2012, denounced Donald Trump’s candidacy in 2016
