Clinton and DNC hired Fusion for dossier


#281

A cop shouldn’t be politicized. But rather than being a lawman he/she is a political appointment out of the gate and should be interviewed by someone other than the body that has an approval rating lower than the press.

Never do the people get to decide the character of the law enforcement leader and most often he is part and parcel of a system that recommended him in the first place. You may be right that electing law enforcement that is so far from the people, as a national top cop, is folly. Elections of county sheriffs all over the country work because the sheriff and his department are likely to have direct affect on their lives. Perhaps the FBI should go back to being the investigative agency they are suppose to be and let someone else do the arresting.

The DOJ is another interesting outfit. I read an article today where David Laufman, an Obama holdover and DOJ official that oversaws the probes of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server and Russian interference in the 2016 election. In a comment he made this statement which struck me as perverse somehow:

“It’s tough to leave a mission this compelling and an institution as exceptional as the Department of Justice,” said Laufman, 59. “But I know that prosecutors and agents will continue to bring to their work precisely what the American people should expect: a fierce and relentless commitment to protect the national security of the United States.”

I thought we already had an NSA… and that the Department of Justice was to administer equal justice for the people… his statement almost sounded like the DOJ was a protective agency of the State.

The problem with the federal bureau investigation comes from the last word in their name investigation !
In the course of any investigation comes the power over the people being investigated !
From day one the bureau used it’s investigation’s as leverage with and against politicians .

I have one question. Was John McCain part of the secret society? Why were McCain associates reaching out for dirt on Trump FOLLOWING the November 2016 presidential election?

"The details about McCain’s involvement were buried toward the end of a nearly 4,100-word February 6 Post article titled, “Hero or hired gun? How a British former spy became a flash point in the Russia investigation.” The article was an extensive report describing the work done by ex-British spy Christopher Steele, who was contracted by Fusion GPS to produce the dossier. The Post article follows the release of a four-page House Intelligence Committee memo alleging abuse of surveillance authority allegedly utilizing the questionable dossier.

According to the Post, Steele originally sought out Sir Andrew Wood, a former British ambassador to Moscow and friend of Steele, for advice prior to the election concerning his alleged research into Trump.

In mid-November, following Trump’s victory, Wood reportedly turned to Steele to discuss whether additional steps were necessary to ensure the U.S. government was aware of Steele’s charges about Trump and Russia.

Wood said that he then reached out to Kramer, who was known for his close ties to McCain, according to the Post.

The Post cited Wood explaining that Kramer had arranged for Wood to meet McCain in December 2016 on the sidelines of a security conference in Canada. There, Wood described detailing Steele’s claims at the meeting with McCain, telling the Arizona senator that he could arrange for the politician to review the purported research."

McCain will NEVER do anything to help the nation if President Trump is involved ! Thin skinned he would put his hurt feeling in frount of our nations security ?
“He’s not a war hero,” said Trump. “He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.” The remarks, which came after days of back-and-forth between McCain and Trump, were met with scattered boos. McCain, a former Navy pilot, spent roughly five-and-half years in a …

Lmao, conservatives never had a problem with the FBI until the FBI started tightening a noose around the TIC’s neck. You know you’re in strange times when conservatives are pro Russian and anti law enforcement. :joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy::joy:

I’m affraid that Comey’s handling of Clinton’s emails has been a long standing concern… only lately are we seeing the extent of corruption at the top level of the FBI and DOJ. People were highly critical of Lynch meeting with Clinton on the tarmac but that seemed to get no traction either… Then their was that bit about gun running that never saw any scrutteny and the stonewalling of the Benghazi investigations… All of this stuff and how it was played is only now slowly coming to light. Next up is the cover Clinton got from the State Dept. Oh… I don’t reserve my scorn strictly for the FBI … Holder and Lynch have been of interest to me for some time.

You know, you talk about the hypocrisy of the right in dealing with these things… well, maybe that is true but you have to admit when you have had two years of people yelling in your ear about two scoops, his combover and screaming about xenophobia, misogyny and his skin complexion (even though orange ain’t white)… your ears get numb to the noise after a while…

I have a huge bucket of popcorn…


#288

Nice twist by you know that fits the progressive motif to a tee… We are seeing just how cozy the left and Russia really are… progressives are just pissed Russia couldn’t deliver the win that they counted on…


#289

What “secret society”??? A myth.

Conservatives went from loving the FBI to hating them ever since Mueller has been closing in on the TIC.


#290

Oh come on Stevie John you know you know the only thing left in his decaying brain is his FAILED attempt at president twice and Trump’s remark about liking the one that don’t get capture is stuck very deep in his craw ! Next time DON’T drop your weapon raise your hands and surrender try fighting !!! shrug


#291

And Sen. Warner paying Russians for more dirt …:wink: shrug


#292

The FBI has been a troubled agency almost from inception .


#293

That’s not what the Republican Party has said. Not until Mueller has gotten so close around the TIC’s neck anyway.


#294

But nothing like the last 9 years , Obama made it a required job assignment !


#295

Beans !!! Yawn !
J. Edgar Hoover created COINTELPRO, a program designed to neutralize political dissidents by sowing seeds of dissention within organizations and leaking derogatory information to the media and law enforcement. The FBI also disseminated damaging information on individuals to members of Congress to influence public opinion about the communist threat.

1950s: FBI Surveillance of Homosexuals
During the 1950s the FBI engaged in widespread surveillance of the gay world. Not only did it collect from local vice squads the names of men arrested on homosexual morals charges; it also placed a watch on gay bars and infiltrated the Mattachine Society and the Daughters of Bilitis.

FBI Storing Information on Activities Protected by the First Amendment, Memos Obtained by ACLU Show
“The trust that community outreach efforts aim to create is undermined when the FBI exploits these programs to gather intelligence on the very members of the religious and community organizations agents are meeting with,” said Michael German, ACLU senior policy counsel and a former FBI agent. “The FBI should be honest with community organizations about what information is being collected during meetings and purge any improperly collected information.”

Shortly after the NSA scandal exploded in 2013, the FBI was exposed conducting its own data mining on innocent Americans; the agency, Bloomberg reported, retains that material for decades (even if no wrongdoing is found). This is particularly ironic since Comey largely launched his political career by aligning himself with Sen. Schumer.
From 2013-2014, the FBI authorized informants to break the law more than 11,000 times, a steep increase from the years prior; these allowances, which the FBI calls “otherwise illegal activity,” is part of a controversial program that has been accused of resulting in the accidental death of many informants.
In 2015, the FBI conducted a controversial raid on a Texas political meeting, finger printing, photographing, and seizing phones from attendees (some in the group believe in restoring Texas as an independent constitutional republic).
During its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified material, the FBI made an unusual deal in which Clinton aides were both given immunity and allowed to destroy their laptops.

It was attorney Jeffrey Marty, who at American Lookout.com, compiled a long list of scandals casting shadows over Mueller. The following are a few of the better-known:
• Some $12 billion in $100 bills was dispatched to the Iraq war theater, and vanished.
• The IRS deliberately targeted Christian and conservative organizations to cause them trouble.
• Fast and Furious saw the government traffic guns into the hands of Mexican cartel criminals.
• The Department of Justice spied on AP reporters.
• Bill Clinton and the Clinton Foundation got millions for speeches while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state.
• Hillary Clinton dealt to Russia control of 20 percent of the uranium capacity inside the U.S.
• Of course, there was Hillary Clinton’s private email server, and all the government records, including classified, that ended up there.
• The HSBC money-laundering scandal.
