OF COURSE THERE WAS POLITICAL BIAS …
From Byron York of The Washington Examiner cones the following, not only was there bias at the FBI, IG even stated the instances. Byron York wrote of the shameful attempts by the usual suspects on the Democrat LEFT to try and claim no bias by writing the following, “The comments had an otherworldly feel to them, because the IG report not only found, but documented, at great length, an FBI culture that was infested with political bias — specifically a political bias against President Trump.” Com on folks, of course there was bias. If you cannot extract bias from two FBI lovebird agents discussing how to prevent candidate Donald Trump from becoming president and making sure Hillary Clinton would, then there really is no help for you.
It didn’t take long for defenders of the FBI’s Trump-Russia investigation to claim that the Justice Department inspector general’s report found no bias in the bureau’s conduct of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, nor in the early days of the Trump-Russia probe.
“There was no bias in the FBI,” Rep. Jerrold Nadler of New York, ranking Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee, said on MSNBC.
“No bias at the FBI,” Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell of California, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, said on Fox News.
“No evidence … [that the FBI] acted on the basis of political bias,” Rep. Adam Schiff of California, top Democrat on the Intelligence Committee, said in a statement.
The comments had an otherworldly feel to them, because the IG report not only found, but documented, at great length, an FBI culture that was infested with political bias — specifically a political bias against President Trump.
The inspector general, Michael Horowitz, discovered the bias when he examined the internal communications of FBI officials involved in the Clinton and Trump probes. (The new report specifically covers the email investigation, but also touches on the beginning of the Trump investigation, because they overlapped in time and because a significant number of key FBI officials were involved in both.) Horowitz discovered a group of officials, some of them in key positions in the Clinton-Trump investigations, who made no secret of their support of Clinton and opposition to Trump.
“Our task was made significantly more difficult because of text and instant messages exchanged on FBI devices and systems by five FBI employees involved in the [Clinton email] investigation,” Horowitz wrote in the executive summary of the report. “These messages reflected political opinions in support of former Secretary Clinton and against her then political opponent Donald Trump. Some of these text messages and instant messages mixed political commentary with discussions about the [Clinton email] investigation, and raised concerns that political bias may have impacted investigative decisions.”
Dinesh D’Souza Reacts to IG Report: “In America Today There Are Quite a Few Criminals with Badges” (VIDEO)
CRIMINALS WITH BADGES AT THE FBI, WHAT IS GOING TO BE DONE ABOUT IT?
Following the release of the IG report, Dinesh D’Souza put forth on ‘ The Ingraham Angle’ that the FBI’s conduct in investigating the Hillary Clinton email scandal and their was obvious institutionalized corruption and bias by far left operatives throughout the upper echelons of the FBI. Dinesh D’Souza stated, “In America today there are quite a few criminals with badges.” He was referring to the FBI agents that operated above the law and tried to influence an election with their bias and opening rooted for one candidate over another saying, they would stop the Trump presidency.
Dinesh D’Souza: I think the American people like me are arriving at the dismaying realization that in America today there are quite a few criminals with badges. Now, growing up as I did in India we had a lot of corruption and we knew that there were criminals on the street and there were criminals with badges. But the criminals with badges were more dangerous because they don’t just violate the law they corrupt the law.
I could not agree with Dinesh D’Souza more. At this point I could care less about Hillary Clinton. She is damaged goods and a two time loser. Just like every sane, normal person knows O.J. Simpson got away with a double murder, they also know that Hillary Clinton got away with her espionage crimes with her private server/emails as well. The IG report all but states that the investigation was mishandled by the FBI. However, Hillary Clinton is one person and is done, the FBI and DOJ is another story. There must be accountability and heads must role there. Americans cannot sit by and allow a government entity with such power to ever have this go on ever again. The bias and partisanship that was exuded by the heads of the FBI and DOJ are obvious. The systemic bias was also obvious. And … many of those bias people are still there and must be removed.
DRAIN THE DAMN SWAMP!!!
House Republicans Unveil Resolution Officially Calling For Second Special Counsel to Investigate the Investigators, (DOJ & FBI) VIDEO
COULD THERE BE A SECOND SPECIAL COUNSEL TO INVESTIGATE THE INVESTIGATORS?
House Republicans unveiled Tuesday a 12 page resolution calling for a second special counsel to investigate misconduct and possible crimes at the highest levels of the Department of Justice and Federal Bureau of Investigation. House Republicans and members of the Freedom Caucus have called for a special counsel as they believe that the FBI and DOJ are incapable of investigating themselves. I would agree. During the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s server/emails and the so-called Trump-Russian collusion investigations, we have been witness to bias, partisanship and a double standard from high ranking members of the DOJ & FBI, the likes we have never seen.
The resolution is backed by Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., the chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus as well as two of the group’s co-founders — Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla.
Fox News has learned the 12-page resolution will ask a second special counsel to probe matters related to three topics:The ending of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s personal email server, the progress of the Trump-Russia investigation from its origins through the appointment of Robert Mueller as special counsel, and abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) during the warrant application process.
The resolution is expected to say that a second special counsel would have greater autonomy to investigate those issues than the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General. Last week, Inspector General Michael Horowitz told lawmakers that he had completed his draft report on the Clinton investigation and submitted it to the DOJ and the FBI.
House Republicans Call For Second Special Counsel Press Conference 5/22/18
Read the FULL Resolution HERE.
Expressing the sense of Congress that the Attorney General
of the United States should appoint a Special Counsel
to investigate misconduct at the Department of Justice
and Federal Bureau of Investigation, including an inves-
tigation of abuse of the FISA warrant process, how
and why the Hillary Clinton probe ended, and how and
why the Donald Trump-Russia probe began.
Whereas there is an urgent need for the appointment of a
second Special Counsel in light of evidence that raises
critical concerns about decisions, activities, and inherent
bias displayed at the highest levels of the Department of
Justice (DOJ) and Federal Bureau of Investigation
(FBI) regarding FISA abuse, how and why the Hillary
Clinton email probe ended, and how and why the Donald
Trump-Russia probe began;
Whereas the concerns of the American people are serious and
the issues requiring an immediate, unbiased, inde-
pendent, and thorough investigation are broad;
Whereas misconduct during the 2016 presidential election by
high-ranking individuals within the FBI and DOJ may
have led to the premature conclusion of the FBI’s 2016
probe into then-presidential candidate and former Sec-
retary of State Hillary Clinton; [...]
Whereas the DOJ and FBI cannot be expected to fully inves-
tigate themselves regarding this matter:
IG Horowitz Said to have Found “Reasonable Grounds” FBI Violated Federal Crimes in Bureau’s Handling of Hillary Investigation
IG HOROWITZ ABOUT TO DROP ANOTHER BOMBSHELL REPORT … CONNECTING THE DOTS.
According to investigative reporter Paul Sperry, Inspector General Horowitz found “reasonable grounds” for believing there has been a violation of federal criminal law in the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation. Imagine that? I thought Comey told us that no reasonable prosecutor would ever have tried this case. The Fix was in from Comey, the Obama FBI and the DOJ from the outset.
A criminal referral could be on the way to Huber …
When the IG’s report finally breaks, former FBI director Comey will be put on the hot seat and have much explaining to do. The fix was in and the IG’s report will bring the FBI’s and DOJ’s misdeeds to light.
IT’S OFFICIAL … Confirmed by NY Times, Deep State FBI Spied on Trump’s Camp Using Informant: Code Name: Crossfire Hurricane.
ITS OFFICIAL, THE DEEP STATE IS OUT OF CONTROL AND INDIVIDUALS NEED TO GO TO PRISON ..
We know have confirmation that the FBI spied on a political campaign and actually used an undercover informant to do so. The NY Times article is a must read. So riddle me this Batman, if the FBI had an informant in the Trump political campaign apparatus, how that was authorized one can only imagine, and this mole was supposed to be getting dirt and information on Trump-Russian collusion, then how in hell over one year later of a Mueller Special counsel and even longer FBI investigation has the Deep State come up with nothing to do with collusion? Seriously, they had and informant and still nothing! Maybe because there is nothing and this was a political hit job born out of the Obama administration to get Hillary elected and then destroy a duly elected President of the United States. Folks, this is 1000 times worse than Watergate.
VIA the New York Times, of all places, Code Name Crossfire Hurricane: The Secret Origins of the Trump Investigation.
Within hours of opening an investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia in the summer of 2016, the F.B.I. dispatched a pair of agents to London on a mission so secretive that all but a handful of officials were kept in the dark.
Their assignment, which has not been previously reported, was to meet the Australian ambassador, who had evidence that one of Donald J. Trump’s advisers knew in advance about Russian election meddling. After tense deliberations between Washington and Canberra, top Australian officials broke with diplomatic protocol and allowed the ambassador, Alexander Downer, to sit for an F.B.I. interview to describe his meeting with the campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos.
The agents summarized their highly unusual interview and sent word to Washington on Aug. 2, 2016, two days after the investigation was opened. Their report helped provide the foundation for a case that, a year ago Thursday, became the special counsel investigation. But at the time, a small group of F.B.I. officials knew it by its code name: Crossfire Hurricane.
In the Clinton case, Mr. Comey has said he erred on the side of transparency. But in the face of questions from Congress about the Trump campaign, the F.B.I. declined to tip its hand. And when The New York Times tried to assess the state of the investigation in October 2016, law enforcement officials cautioned against drawing any conclusions, resulting in a story that significantly played down the case.
Mr. Comey has said it is unfair to compare the Clinton case, which was winding down in the summer of 2016, with the Russia case, which was in its earliest stages. He said he did not make political considerations about who would benefit from each decision.
But underpinning both cases was one political calculation: that Mrs. Clinton would win and Mr. Trump would lose. Agents feared being seen as withholding information or going too easy on her. And they worried that any overt actions against Mr. Trump’s campaign would only reinforce his claims that the election was being rigged against him.
The F.B.I. obtained phone records and other documents using national security letters — a secret type of subpoena — officials said. And at least one government informant met several times with Mr. Page and Mr. Papadopoulos, current and former officials said. That has become a politically contentious point, with Mr. Trump’s allies questioning whether the F.B.I. was spying on the Trump campaign or trying to entrap campaign officials.
