Is that what the FBI/DOJ capos have become?*
FBI’s “most wanting” for justice
Consider these commentaries from a variety of reporting sources:
GOP lawmakers cite new allegations of political bias in FBI (The Hill)
Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.): “The data points we have regarding politicization are damning enough but appear all the more problematic when viewed against the backdrop of investigations whose ferocity seemed to depend on the target: the Clinton case was investigated with an eye towards how to exonerate her and her associates, while the Russia investigation is being conducted using scorched earth tactics that seek to find anything to use against Trump associates…”
Whistleblower Witnessed Top FBI Executive Suggest FBI Had Personal Motive in Investigating Flynn to Ruin His Career (Gateway Pundit)
A whistleblower told Rep Ron DeSantis that he witnessed a senior FBI executive suggest the FBI had a personal motive and targeted Flynn with the purpose of ruining his career.
Stray Strzok thoughts (Powerline)
“At the FBI, all roads lead to Strzok. Strzok had served as a trusted lieutenant of former FBI Director James Comey. He had a big hand in the FBI’s “investigation” of Hillary Clinton and came up with the characterization of Clinton’s use of a private server as “extraordinarily careless” rather than “grossly negligent.” (I think these phrases are synonymous.) He had a hand in the FBI’s questioning of Michael Flynn. He moved on to Mueller’s team. He is a key figure in every matter roiling the
Comey Exemplifies the Effort to Get Stupid (American Greatness)
“The cries of obstruction of justice disguise the growing—and ultimately servile—impulse to subordinate elected power to unelected power. This impulse—this yearning to get stupid—is beneath the dignity of a free people.”
Trump is bringing Mueller down (Don Surber Blog)
“Over the weekend, the results of Trump’s investigation of Team Mueller surfaced. Mueller had to fire his top investigator because that investigator left a trail of anti-Trump emails, and was caught destroying evidence and altering statements in that Fake Investigation of Hillary’s emails.”
GOP Lawmakers Press for Investigation of FBI’s ‘Special Treatment’ of Hillary Clinton Probe Scott Perry, R-Pa. (Daily Signal – Heritage Foundation)
“Why are there two different standards of justice? Why doesn’t the FBI and the Justice Department have to comply with subpoenas by the Congress for information that the American people need to have and should have and should have access to? Why is that happening?”

Evidence mounts as key FBI personnel are outed as apparent partners of the “Resistance”:
IS IT TIME TO FEAR THE FBI?
In the congressional hearing this Thursday, democrats on the committee demanded to know if the new FBI director had been asked by president Trump to ‘take a loyalty pledge’. the reply was “no”!
This is a characterization of Trump’s alleged demand of Comey. accurate or not, other presidents have very likely felt a need for and properly expected a positive response to their question of whether they could trust their selected appointee.
HOW DO SECRET POLICE AGENCIES COME INTO BEING IN TOTALITARIAN REGIMES?
In my view, the answer to the first question is, an emphatic YES! Short of a public announcement from the FBI Director himself (his name is Wray…other than that, where is he??) that the agency will begin rounding up “enemies of the state”, it couldn’t be clearer that there is something radically amiss at 935 Pennsylvania Avenue NW in Washington, D.C..
Keep in mind, this is an all powerful government entity which can destroy peoples’ careers, bankrupt them, imprison them without evidence of wrongdoing…only having a different recollection of long ago events from the recollections of individuals the agency alone considers more credible. With an uncontrolled political agenda, the FBI is a monstrous threat to the freedom of every American citizen.
The bureau, under the overall authority of a Justice Dept. led by Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch, arguably in our view, the two most corrupt Attorney Generals in American history, has descended sharply into an entity that, if not feared, is most certainly mistrusted by many American citizens.
To answer the second question, the FBI’s descent into abject corruption, best illustrated by the historic and bizarrely conducted “investigation” of a high government official maintaining a private internet server and destroying government documents and deliberately obstructing justice, seems to be almost a roadmap to how secret police agencies come into being…or behave after becoming a state secret police agency.
With a president like we’ve endured the past 8 years, encouraging and protecting the likes of a Robert Mueller, succeeded by James Comey, the once proud agency suffered from the most despicable actions by two of the most incompetent, dishonest bureaucrats in Washington at the time…and that’s saying a lot!
(It is interesting to hear Trey Gowdy stubbornly “hope” that Robert Mueller will conduct a fair, thorough investigation of…what? Russian collusion? Obstruction of Justice? Trump’s various business deals Mueller doesn’t approve of? Not being nice to Hillary?
Recall Rep. Gowdy conducted that “fair, thorough investigation” of the Benghazi tragedy. Like us, many were delighted when Gowdy was named to head the Select Committee…which turned out to be another in a long list of GOP flops.)
And, now, with a new president and a new administration , the minions of these two remain in key positions within the DOJ and the FBI, cynically and successfully frustrating all efforts to expose how deeply corrupt our top law enforcement entity has become.
Withholding evidence from Congress, ignoring the obvious obstruction of justice by Hillary in destroying 30,000 emails, conducting an incredibly unprofessional, inept, “interview” of the primary target (Hillary) of the investigation, granting immunity to just about everybody but unknown passersby, etc…this is your FBI today!
How incredible is it for Americans to learn that an FBI Director leaks confidential information to the media, withholds essential information from legitimate congressional investigators, lies to or misleads the President on vital security matters, and then winds up being instrumental in getting a close friend appointed to “investigate” the president who fired him because he could not be trusted to act in accord with his Constitutional duties?
Many on the right tell us that while there are those in leadership positions in the agency, both Obama holdovers and “NeverTrumpers”, the ‘agents’ themselves are dedicated, honest, devoted to the search for truth and justice.
That may be true, but if the overwhelming majority of FBI special agents, and lower level people within the agency are unaware of the abject corruption the agency has descended into, it is alarming. Even worse, though, is the likelihood that they are aware and choose to continue to serve.
Perhaps, with our livelihood on the line many of us would do the same…but that is not reassuring to the American people. There may well have been those with similar concerns in the Stasi, the NKVD, the Gestapo, the SAVAK, the Mukhabarat, Uganda’s State Research Bureau, etc, etc, who were eventually moved to dutifully carry out the ghastly orders of their superiors.
After all, they did have their jobs and their families to think of.
THE FBI TODAY? BE AFRAID AMERICA…BE VERY AFRAID!
It just goes on and on — maybe this is the worst so far:
