MORE FIRINGS POSSIBLE FOLLOWING DOJ REPORT

John said, "The report tells all that Comey did not follow JD rules with Hillary, and due to that the election was moved to Trump. Comey helped Trump win which is just the opposite of what the far right has been saying for months. Comey did follow JD rules and did not comment on the FBI looking into the Russians and the Trump Campaign thus helping Trump again.  What we see is that Trump was elected by Comey actions."

 

John's excellent post uses LOGIC to illustrate this report proves what we knew all along. Comey buried Hillary's chances of being elected and protected Trump at the same time. Unfortunately, Trump Cult members are thoroughly confused by LOGIC and FACTS. They will instead focus on the trivial to yell and scream FBI corruption. 

 

Never confuse Trump Cult members with FACTS.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement that the report “reveals a number of significant errors by the senior leadership of the Department of Justice and the FBI during the previous administration.”

 

In an interview with The Hill’s new web show “Rising” on Wednesday, Sessions said the option of “termination” is on the table for those accused of serious wrongdoing. Some of the key figures, though, have already been fired or left the government.

 

A related review already has put former top FBI official Andrew McCabe in legal jeopardy. The Justice Department’s internal watchdog sent a criminal referral for McCabe in April to the U.S. attorney’s office in Washington.

 

That was in response to Horowitz’s finding that McCabe leaked information to the press and later lied about it to Comey and federal investigators, prompting Sessions to fire him in March. The Washington Post reported that Comey has since been questioned by the U.S. attorney’s office as part of a McCabe investigation.

 

In his report Thursday, Horowitz also reviewed the circumstances of whether McCabe should have recused himself earlier from the Clinton probe because of his family’s ties to the Democratic Party.

McCabe’s wife took campaign money from a group tied to then-Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a Clinton ally, during her unsuccessful run for office in Virginia in 2015. McCabe did not recuse himself until a week before the 2016 election.

 

Horowitz said McCabe “did not fully comply with his recusal in a few instances” related to the Clinton Foundation investigation. He also said the FBI’s ethics officials and attorneys “did not fully appreciate the potential significant implications” to McCabe and the FBI from campaign contributions to his wife’s campaign.

 

An attorney for McCabe, Michael Bromwich, said in a Thursday statement that “any and all claims that political bias or political influence affected Mr. McCabe’s actions” are “entirely baseless.”

In a New York Times op-ed on Thursday, Comey stood by his decision not to recommend prosecuting Clinton over her emails while secretary of state.

 

“The report also resoundingly demonstrates that there was no prosecutable case against Mrs. Clinton, as we had concluded,” Comey said. “Although that probably will not stop some from continuing to claim the opposite is true, this independent assessment will be useful to thoughtful people and an important contribution to the historical record.”

The public firing and prosecution of these bad FBI agents may begin the process of rebuilding the reputation of the agency...

 

This is the most damning report ever produced on Americas' top law enforcement agency.  This can not continue.

IG refers five FBI employees for investigation, as more anti-Trump messages revealed

 

The Justice Department inspector general has referred five FBI employees for investigation in connection with politically charged texts, revealing in its report on the Hillary Clinton email case that more bureau officials than previously thought were exchanging anti-Trump messages.

 

The long-awaited report largely dealt with the Justice Department and FBI's handling of the Clinton case but uncovered numerous messages that “appeared to mix political opinion with discussions about the MYE investigation."

 

MYE, or "Midyear Exam," was the code used in the FBI to refer to the investigation into Clinton’s private email server.

 

“Some of these text messages and instant messages mixed political commentary with discussions about the Midyear investigation, and raised concerns that political bias may have impacted investigative decisions,” the report read.

 

The report noted that it was specifically concerned about text messages exchanged between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page that “potentially indicated or created the appearance that investigative decisions were impacted by bias or improper considerations.”

 

Strzok and Page, who were romantically involved, both served for a short period of time on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation team. Strzok was reassigned following the revelations of his anti-Trump texts. Page resigned last month. 

 

But while many of those texts were made public in late 2017, the IG report revealed a new one in which Strzok vowed to "stop" Trump from becoming president -- and made clear that as many as five total FBI employees exchanged politically charged messages. "The text messages and instant messages sent by these employees included statements of hostility toward then candidate Trump and statements of support for candidate Clinton," the report said. 

 

The report revealed instant messages between unnamed agents, labeled “Agent 1” and “Agent 5,” discussing their jobs in August 2016.

 

“I find anyone who enjoys [this job] an absolute f---ing idiot. If you don’t think so, ask them one more question. Who are you voting for? I guarantee you it will be Donald Drumpf,” Agent 1 sent.

“I forgot about drumpf…that’s so sad and pathetic if they want to vote for him,” Agent 5 responded. “Someone who can’t answer a question. Someone who can’t be professional for even a second.”

In September, Agent 1 and 5 conversed again, bashing Trump supporters as “retarded.”

“I’m trying to think of a ‘would I rather’ instead of spending time with those people,” Agent 5 sent. 

Agent 1 asked, “stick your tongue in a fan??”

Agent 5 later wrote: “I would rather have brunch with trump and a bunch of his supporters like the ones from ohio that are retarded.”

 

The report did not, however, find evidence connecting those political opinions held by FBI officials to decisions made in the Clinton investigation.

 

“There were clearly tensions and disagreements in a number of important areas between Midyear agents and prosecutors. However, we did not find documentary or testimonial evidence that improper considerations, including political bias, directly affected the specific investigative decisions…,” the report read. “Nonetheless, these messages cast a cloud over the FBI’s handling of the Midyear investigation and the investigation’s credibility.”

 

Futher, the report said that while it found no evidence the views influenced investigative decisions, “five employees” have been referred for investigation into whether the messages violated FBI code.

“The FBI will handle these referrals pursuant to the FBI’s disciplinary investigation and adjudication processes, and will impose disciplinary measures as warranted,” the report read.

 

It is unclear which five FBI employees have been referred for investigation.

 

An FBI spokesperson told Fox News Thursday they were not able to comment on the names of the five employees referred for investigation.

 

The IG report included a new text conversation between Strzok and Page from August 2016. 

 

“[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!” Page texted Strzok.

“No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it,” Strzok responded.

 

Those texts “caused [the OIG] to question the earlier Midyear investigative decisions in which he was involved, and whether he took specific actions in the Midyear investigation based on his political views,” the report read.

 

In a statement to Fox News, Strzok’s attorney Aitan Goelman defended Strzok’s work at the FBI.

“After a year-long investigation that included a review of millions of communications and interviews of scores of witnesses, the IG concluded that there is no evidence that the political views of Special Agent Strzok and others in the FBI impacted the handling of the Clinton email investigation,” Goelman said in a statement. “As the Report notes, Special Agent Strzok in particular was consistently thorough and aggressive, sometimes to the point that put him at odds with senior officials at the Department of Justice.”

 

Goelman added: “While pundits and politicians are using this matter to advance their agendas, the truth about Special Agent Strzok’s character and professionalism is found in the fact that every witness asked by the OIG said that Strzok’s work was never influenced by political views. His dedication to unbiased service is a fact that would be universally echoed by the thousands of people who have worked with Pete during his 26 years of service in the FBI and U.S. Army.”

 

The report also reveals that one FBI attorney assigned to the special counsel's team was found to have sent politically charged FBINet instant messages to other FBI officials. 

 

That FBI employee sent messages such as: "As I have initiated the destruction of the republic...Would you be so kind as to have a coffee with me this afternoon?" 

 

Another instant message read: "I'm clinging to small pockets of happiness in the dark time of the Republic's destruction." 

 

The report did not reveal this FBI official's name, but did state that the official worked on both the Clinton email investigation and the Russia probe.

 

The FBI official left the special counsel's team in February of this year, following revelations of his politically charged messages. 

 

The special counsel's office did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment on the investigator who left the team in February.

Here we go again the far right enablers posting what they are being told by their leaders none of which is true. Watch FOX and you will see how the leaders put this nonsense together. The report tells all that Comey did not follow JD rules with Hillary, and due to that the election was moved to Trump. Comey helped Trump win which is just the opposite of what the far right has been saying for months. Comey did follow JD rules and did not comment on the FBI looking into the Russians and the Trump Campaign thus helping Trump again.  What we see is that Trump was elected by Comey actions. Poor far right they have their work cut out for them so there will be a lot of lies, and nonsense coming from the far right enablers. By the way the report includes the definition of the far right enablers. Read it, and then join me in repating it whenever they post something that is not true.

Challenging the creditability of a source is a valid debate tool. As a valid debate tool, it is not OFF TOPIC whatsoever.

 

If a source continuously publishes debunked and deceptive material to the point where it can no longer be believed, then it is up to someone to point that out.

 

That is why there is a small circle of these type of sources; mostly used by those that subscribe to the Trump philosophy of: "tell a lie enough times and people will begin to believe it "(a quote attributed to A. Hitler)

Well here is something that should get everything back on target. The IG report was released today and guess what it tells us the Commie and crew gave the election to Trump. If he had not released his report, and then announced the reopening, and closing Hillary would have won. The report also tells us he was against telling the public about the FBI looking into the Russians being involved in the Trump campaign. He would not sign the letter on that the other 2 Intel heads did. It looks like everything is in reverse of what our far right enablers have been saying. Now what do thinking people think about that,

Wonder how they got to be a pack running together? Wonder if they hold rituals somewhere in a forest?

Have you noticed how many of the posts done by RWNJs have the word "May", "Possible", "Could have", or are questions?  It is because they are making this up as they go along and conspiracy theories are their only support.
