It’s Time to Admit the F.B.I. Has Gone Rogue

Elder Patriot – With every passing day, the F.B.I. is being exposed as a rogue agency that only exists to protect the swamp’s establishmentarians and to punish anyone who might threaten their wellbeing. 

Ask yourself when was the last time the F.B.I. made a meaningful bust of any of the political elites, of either party, who we all know are up to their eyeballs in corruption.  The elites are so confident in their control over the F.B.I. that they now publicly command them to conduct investigations on their political enemies and whistleblowers with impunity.

If you doubt me let me know when Maxine Waters, Adam Schiff, Jackie Speier or Eric Swalwell are held to account for their very public and very specious attacks on President Trump and those around him when they are exonerated.

On Friday we learned that the House Select Committee on Intelligence was forced to postpone a hearing on the Russian dossier that was the pretext for launching the investigation into President Trump and that resulted in the appointment of another swamp protectionist as special counsel.

Postponements are not rare when it becomes necessary to wait for evidence to be presented.  But, when the postponement is the third one for the same evidence it raises the stink meter to significant levels.

These documents were, after all, subpoenaed.  We all know how that works when you’re not part of Washington’s protected class. Just a couple of weeks SC Mueller gather subpoenaed documents from Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort.  In that case they picked the lock to his home’s door in the early morning hours and came en force with firearms drawn.

It’s beginning to look like the F.B.I., that outsources everything from forensic computer analysis to the contractor of choice (Crowdstrike) of the target of their investigation (DNC), to allowing the lawyers (David Kendall and Williams & Connolly LLP) representing the targets of their investigations (Hillary Clinton, Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, et al) to decide what evidence the Bureau can and can’t see, is now relying on a debunked partisan political hit piece paid for by the president’s enemies to justify the continued charade of Robert Mueller.

It should be unacceptable to every American citizen that the F.B.I. has been provably corrupted at its highest levels.

FISA court proceedings by necessity are secretive and FISA judges rely on the integrity of the petitioner before agreeing to issue warrants authorizing the wiretapping of Americans.

It’s important to note that in every instance the FISA court judge that the Obama administration brought a request to had also been appointed to his or her position by Obama.

Last Monday CNN reported that Obama’s FBI indeed wiretapped Trump’s campaign manager, Paul Manafort before, during and after the 2016 presidential election. CNN even admitted that Trump was likely to have been caught up in the surveillance.

In this instance the Obama FBI used a secret court order to wiretap Manafort. Was the debunked dossier that was put together by a team of political hacks to serve as a hit piece later relied on to obtain this FISA warrant in order to spy on Trump and his associates?

What we do know is that in testimony before Congress Comey has often cited the Russian dossier.

The F.B.I.’s reluctance to share the dossier with Congressional investigators is further undermining confidence in the Agency.  And, the perception that those at the top of the F.B.I. are now fully engaged in protecting Washington’s swamp establishmentarians continues to be bolstered.

What is the F.B.I. hiding and who are they protecting?  Perhaps Comey and McCabe accepted the Russian dossier as factual because they wanted to believe it, they needed to believe it because Trump’s ascendancy and his campaign promise to drain the swamp scared the living tar our of the corrupt F.B.I. director and his lead deputy.

It’s clear that the F.B.I. is now fully engaged in operating as a rogue agency not only intent on protecting the most corrupt elements of our government but on destroying anyone who threatens the hold on power of these corrupt establishmentarians.
