The Ingraham Angle 12/14/17: Obama and Clinton Loyalists in FBI & DOJ Need to Be Fired and Arrested (VIDEO)
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE FBI AND DOJ BECOME POLITICALLY WEAPONIZED …
You really need to listen to this, what happens when those who investigate need to be investigated? We are now beginning to understand what they meant by having an “insurance policy” against a Trump election.
NOW THEY FINALLY THINK THAT MUELLER HAS A CONFLICT OF INTEREST? HE HAD ONE WHEN HE WAS NAMED THE SO-CALLED INDEPENDENT SPECIAL PROSECUTOR …
According to The Hill, a new Harvard CAPS-Harris Survey is out that shows that a majority of Americans believe that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has a conflict of interest. 54% responded that the “relationship” between the two amounts to a conflict of interest, which includes 70% of Republicans, 53% of independents and even 40% of Democrats. Really, how long have we been saying Mueller has a conflict of interest? It has been proved that the FBI and DOJ had a bias against Donald Trump and for Hillary Clinton. The Mueller special counsel was supposed to uncover collusion between Trump and the Russians. However, all we have learned is that there was collusion between the DNC and the Clinton campaign, Hillary/Obama, Uranium One and the Russians, the Russian dossier/Hillary/FBI, and the FBI involved in possible election meddling by the FBI, Be very careful what you ask for Democrats, you may not like the truth.
So much for the impeccable reputation of being a Boy Scout
A majority of polled voters say special counsel Robert Mueller has a conflict of interest because of his past ties to former FBI Director James Comey, according to the latest Harvard CAPS-Harris survey.
When asked if Mueller has a conflict of interest “as the former head of the FBI and a friend of James Comey,” 54 percent responded that the “relationship” between the two amounts to a conflict of interest, including 70 percent of Republicans, 53 percent of independents and 40 percent of Democrats.
“The special counsel has serious perception issues as a clear majority now see him as having a conflict of interest,” said Mark Penn, co-director of the Harvard CAPS-Harris survey.
In the Harvard CAPS-Harris survey, a plurality of voters, 36 percent, said Trump and his allies are getting harsher treatment from the special counsel than Clinton and her aides received during the FBI investigation into her handling of classified material. Twenty-five percent said both parties are getting the same treatment, 24 percent are unsure and 15 percent said the president is getting more lenient treatment.
Comey cleared Clinton of wrongdoing and one of her top aides, Cheryl Mills, received an immunity deal during the investigation. Mueller’s probe so far has resulted in guilty pleas from former national security adviser Michael Flynn, as well as former campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, both of whom are cooperating with the special counsel. Former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and one of his top aides, Richard Gates, face a litany of serious charges pertaining to alleged financial crimes.
Clinton Mole & FBI Agent Peter Strzok Dismissed from Mueller Probe Changed Comey’s Description of Clinton to ‘Extremely Careless’
WHAT A SHOCK, A DOUBLE STANDARD FOR HILLARY CLINTON …
Just how much corruption was there in the Hillary Clinton email investigation? How does the pro-Hillary FBI agent Peter Strzok find his way on both the Hillary Clinton email server investigation and Robert Mueller’s witch hunt? Does anyone really wonder? And why didn’t Mueller inform everyone that one of the key investigators had such a conflict of interest? Mueller has a HUGE credibility problem. Mueller already had conflicts of interest in this investigation. Now it would seem impossible how this investigation could ever be impartial or credible. It was a witch hunt from the outset.
A former top counterintelligence expert at the FBI, now at the center of a political uproar for exchanging private messages that appeared to mock President Donald Trump, changed a key phrase in former FBI Director James Comey’s description of how former secretary of state Hillary Clinton handled classified information, according to US officials familiar with the matter.
Electronic records show Peter Strzok, who led the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server as the No. 2 official in the counterintelligence division, changed Comey’s earlier draft language describing Clinton’s actions as “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless,” the sources said.
The drafting process was a team effort, CNN is told, with a handful of people reviewing the language as edits were made, according to another US official familiar with the matter.
The shift from “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless,” which may appear pedestrian at first glance, reflected a decision by the FBI that could have had potentially significant legal implications, as the federal law governing the mishandling of classified material establishes criminal penalties for “gross negligence.”
Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, raised questions over why the change was made after receiving documents from the FBI last month, but the identity of who was behind the edit has not been reported until now.
CNN has also learned that Strzok was the FBI official who signed the document officially opening an investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, according to sources familiar with the matter. As the No. 2 official in counterintelligence, Strzok was considered to be one of the bureau’s top experts on Russia.
But the news of Strzok’s direct role in the statement that ultimately cleared the former Democratic presidential candidate of criminal wrongdoing, now combined with the fact that he was dismissed from special counsel Robert Mueller’s team after exchanging private messages with an FBI lawyer that could be seen as favoring Clinton politically, may give ammunition to those seeking ways to discredit Mueller’s Russia investigation.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller Must Recuse Himself … He is Knee Deep with James Comey, Rod Rosenstein, Andrew Weissmann & Andrew McCabe’s
RECUSE YOURSELF NOW … YOU HAVE MORE THAN AN APPEARANCE OF A CONFLICT OF INTEREST.
From the WSJ comes this following message that Special Counsel Robert Mueller must step down and recuse himself from all things Russia. The FBI, when Mueller headed it, soft-pedaled an investigation highly embarrassing to Mrs. Clinton as well as the Obama Russia reset policy. Even worse, he appears to have completely withheld vital information that the FBI was legally bound to report to Congress. Had this occurred, the Uranium One deal would never have been approved. Flash-forward to present day and we have an FBI informant about to come forward and blow the whistle on all of them. The crimes of the Clinton’s were covered up, the FBI, Hillary Clinton, Attorney General and mist like Barack Obama all knew what Russia was doing and they said nothing and went forward with the deal.
The purchase and consolidation of certain assets were facilitated by Canadian entrepreneurs who gave large sums to the Clinton Foundation, and perhaps arranged a Bill Clinton speech in Moscow for $500,000. A key transaction had to be approved by Hillary Clinton’s State Department.
Now we learn that, before and during these transactions, the FBI had uncovered a bribery and kickback scheme involving Russia’s U.S. nuclear business, and also received reports of Russian officials seeking to curry favor through donations to the Clinton Foundation.
This criminal activity was apparently not disclosed to agencies vetting the 2010 transfer of U.S. commercial nuclear assets to Russia. The FBI made no move to break up the scheme until long after the transaction closed. Only five years later, the Justice Department, in 2015, disclosed a plea deal with the Russian perpetrator so quietly that its significance was missed until The Hill reported on the FBI investigation last week.
For anyone who cares to look, the real problem here is that the FBI itself is so thoroughly implicated in the Russia meddling story.
The agency, when Mr. Mueller headed it, soft-pedaled an investigation highly embarrassing to Mrs. Clinton as well as the Obama Russia reset policy. More recently, if just one of two things is true—Russia sponsored the Trump Dossier, or Russian fake intelligence prompted Mr. Comey’s email intervention—then Russian operations, via their impact on the FBI, influenced and continue to influence our politics in a way far more consequential than any Facebook ad, the preoccupation of John McCain, who apparently cannot behold a mountain if there’s a molehill anywhere nearby.
Which means that Mr. Mueller has the means, motive and opportunity to obfuscate and distract from matters embarrassing to the FBI, while pleasing a large part of the political spectrum. He need only confine his focus to the flimsy, disingenuous but popular (with the media) accusation that the shambolic Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin.
Mr. Mueller’s tenure may not have bridged the two investigations, but James Comey’s, Rod Rosenstein’s , Andrew Weissmann’s , and Andrew McCabe’s did. Mr. Rosenstein appointed Mr. Mueller as special counsel. Mr. Weissmann now serves on Mr. Mueller’s team. Mr. McCabe remains deputy FBI director. All were involved in the nuclear racketeering matter and the Russia meddling matter.
Let’s stop here. All this needs to be sorted out, but not in a spirit of panic and hysteria. We are a prosperous, successful country, in pretty good shape right now by historical standards, even if our officials behave in the frequently dubious, self-interested way they always have.
But still: By any normal evidentiary, probative or journalistic measure, the big story here is the FBI—its politicized handling of Russian matters, and not competently so.
Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein says that he is not going to allow the Mueller investigation to become a fishing investigation; however, Sena Hannity opines, it already has. It is obvious to all that it is a partisan witch hunt just by the make up of those who are investigation and the conflicts of interests that have been allowed to be over-looked. This would never be allowed in a court room, why would it be allowed with a special prosecutor?
