FBI agents deserve a seasoned criminal investigator or counterintelligence agent to lead them — someone who also survived the Academy, carried a gun and badge, worked the hard cases, and fought the bureaucratic fight.
There’s a big difference between the two.
‘All who believe in this country’s values must vote for Democrats this fall.’
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and others embarrassed by DOJ’s actions are shielded by the never-ending nature of the investigation.
The House passed a resolution Thursday demanding the Justice Department comply with requests for thousands of sensitive documents.
Hillary and Trump are similarly situated, yet in investigating allegations of illegality, the FBI approached the cases differently. It’s extremely clear from the inspector general report.
The press is spinning the inspector general report as evidence the case is closed, but plenty of important questions remain.
‘Even if he said the truth and didnt have a clearance when handling the secure fax – aint noone gonna do s–t.’
“Comey’s description of his choice as being between ‘two doors,’ one labeled ‘speak’ and one labeled ‘conceal,’ was a false dichotomy,” the report states. “The two doors were actually labeled ‘follow policy/practice’ and ‘depart from policy/practice.'”
‘Although FBI policy strictly limits the employees who are authorized to speak to the media, we found that this policy appeared to be widely ignored.’
‘She might be our next president,’ Lisa Page told Peter Strzok. ‘The last thing you need us going in there loaded for bear.’
The status conference focused on the ongoing review of the seized documents. Cohen’s legal team said they had analyzed about one-third of the material, or about 1.3 million files in total.
Brian Stelter was outraged to learn in 2016 that a woman he dated who worked at Fox News was actually an informant for the network.
In a tweetstorm on Thursday morning, Trump acknowledged reimbursing attorney Michael Cohen for a $130,000 payment he made to Stormy Daniels, who Trump claims made ‘extortionist accusations’ against him.
The IG is investigating whether former FBI Director James Comey shared classified information when he leaked to the press.
‘Special Agent Andrew McCabe stood tall over the last 8 months, when small people were trying to tear down an institution we all depend on.’
‘He said Mattis said great things about me, as did Sessions. He explained he had asked a lot of people about me and heard great things.’
The IG found McCabe repeatedly leaked to the press and lied about it to federal investigators and to former FBI Director James Comey.
The FBI, Justice Department, and D.C. district court have taken pains to prevent the public from seeing the Comey memos and deciding for themselves whether he has been ‘telling all.’
The former FBI director James Comey’s higher loyalty isn’t to justice or to our institutions. It’s to his own self-preservation.
