The FBI is in the spotlight these days. It is not the first time. J. Edgar Hoover was well known for having a robust operation that not only fought against the criminal eliminate, but was also known to maintain files against politicians that were used for blackmail.
While the days of J. Edgar Hoover are long past several new reports reveal other problems that are just as troubling.
FBI – Andrew McCabe
Approximately three years ago the FBI and Andrew McCabe was being accused of sexual discrimination. The accuser? Special Agent Robyn Gritz.
This according to a report from Circa News:
The FBI launched a criminal probe against former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn two years after the retired Army general roiled the bureau’s leadership by intervening on behalf of a decorated counterterrorism agent who accused now-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe and other top officials of sexual discrimination, according to documents and interviews.
This report leads one to believe that the Flynn investigation was a twofer. The deep state hates President Trump, and the FBI did not like the fact that Flynn spoke up for Agent Robyn Gritz.
The Circa report continues: “Three FBI employees told Circa they personally witnessed McCabe make disparaging remarks about Flynn before and during the time the retired Army general emerged as a figure in the Russia case.”
MaCabe did get his revenge with the leak of Flynn’s private conversation in violation of the constitution.
If you read the entire Circa report, you cannot come to any reasonable conclusion other than that this situation must be independently investigated.
In addition, MaCabe is also under investigation for being in violation of the Hatch Act. This having to do with his actions in his wife’s campaign and political activities. The campaign that netted her over $670,000 of cold hard cash.
Just The Tip
However, MaCabe is just the tip of the corruption. In his recent testimony, James Comey revealed that then Attorney General Loretta Lynch told him to alter his statement about the Hillary Clinton email criminal investigation. He was instructed to use the same wording as the Clinton campaign. He complied.
This in addition to the FBI director overreaching his authority in making a determination that Clinton would not be prosecuted.
While the Justice Department may or may not have violated the law by not prosecuting Clinton they were never given the chance. The FBI director did violate the law with his actions though. That is a fact.
Not only did the FBI violate the law by making that decision, they also let Clinton’s assistant off the hook for mishandling classified material.
They gave immunity deals that produce no convictions, rather just let more people off the hook of criminal activity. It was a classic case of a cover-up.
FBI – The Lawsuit
Besides all of this, we now learn that the FBI was given an immense amount of evidence of governmental wrongdoing that they buried.
Governmental wrongdoing involving unconstitutional surveillance. Just the kind of surveillance that President Trump called them out for regarding their surveillance of him.
The whistleblower who turned over this evidence is now suing them. The lawsuit alleges that the FBI and James Comey covered up the information. That they are in fact co-conspirators in the illegal activities.
This is just the information that we know. Most likely it is the tip of the iceberg.
The FBI, the Nations’s top law enforcement agency seems to also be one of the nation’s top criminal enterprises. Not in regards to most of the men and women in the field. Most agents are probably honorable, patriotic Americans.
When you look though, at the management’s actions and decisions, it is hard to say that they as an organization are not corrupt.
