Trump is Right about Comey Being Unpopular at the FBI

President Donald Trump's deputy press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, told reporters at an off-camera press briefing on Thursday that Trump is "not a liar." 
"I can definitively say the president is not a liar and I think it's frankly insulting that question would be asked," Sanders said, according to CNN
Sanders' remark came in response to former FBI Director James Comey's Thursday testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, during which he repeatedly called into question Trump's honesty. 
Comey said that the administration wrongly attempted to paint the FBI as in "disarray" and him as unpopular within the bureau in order to justify Trump's decision to fire Comey last month.
Andrew Kerr for Western Journalism reports, Three former assistant directors of the FBI joined Fox News Tuesday night to share their thoughts on President Donald Trump’s decision to fire James Comey. All three thought Comey had it coming, and some were glad to see it happen.

According to Chris Farrell of Judicial Watch, retired and active members of the FBI have told him in private that James Comey was a corrupt officer. While speaking to Lou Dobbs on his Fox News program, Farrell also criticized Comey for breaking his oath of office by leaking unclassified material, via Gateway Pundit.
Other unnamed FBI agents are reportedly willing to testify that Comey personally obstructed the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.

RUSH: Former FBI Agents Are NOT AT ALL On The Same Page With Any Of This That Comey Is On


How much blood is boiling among FBI agents?

—You’re an FBI agent. You sit and watch television night after night, as a Presidential candidate who should have been brought up on felony charges, and thereby disqualified and scuttled, moves through the land and makes promises about what she’ll do as the next leader of the nation. You sit and watch, deepening your grasp on how the system actually works—
How much blood is boiling among FBI agents?
Sharyl Attkisson, former CBS News investigative reporter, has the story (
“Many people at the FBI are outraged, but cannot speak out,” one insider told me,” Attkisson writes.
We’re talking about FBI Director James Comey’s recommendation that Hillary Clinton not be prosecuted in her email scandal. This, after thousands of hours of FBI work scouring the emails connected to Hillary’s illegal private server.
Here are several other comments FBI professionals made, off the record, to Attkisson, with my remarks in parentheses ():
“It appears to me they made a deal not to record [the key FBI-Hillary] interview.”
(This failure, as I wrote, means the interview is lost forever. No stenographic transcript was executed, either. FBI agents’ notes on the interview are useless. They can never be used against Hillary as ironclad evidence in a court of law.)
“Director Comey seems to have taken on responsibilities far beyond the FBI’s purview—he assumed the duties of the Agent, US Attorney and Grand Jury.”
(Indeed he did. He functioned as FBI Director, Grand Jury, Attorney General, and appellate judge. In this last role, he knowingly misinterpreted the Federal Penal Code, which clearly states that gross negligence in the handling of classified material is a crime, regardless of intent. Hillary was, at the very least, grossly negligent. FBI Director Comey acknowledged this.)
“It appears no Grand Jury was empaneled for this investigation. This is absurd, Grand Juries are used in nearly all criminal investigations.”
“Even in the most straightforward of cases, the time span between a target interview [of Hillary] and prosecution opinion [on whether to file charges] takes weeks, not days. If a good interview were conducted [with Clinton] on Saturday, there would have been leads or other new pieces of information to verify or investigate prior to any conclusion to the case.”
(In other words, the fix was already in.)
Attkisson: “During his Congressional testimony, Comey indicated he didn’t look into Clinton’s false statements. He said he needed an additional ‘referral’ or formal request [from Congress] for the FBI to investigate whether she committed perjury under oath to Congress. ‘This makes no sense,’ said a career agent. ‘It is normal practice that if you came upon evidence of a crime different than the one you were originally investigating, it was fair game.’”
(There is no need to wait for a request to investigate from Congress.)
You can bet many people at the FBI are boiling over after Director Comey’s recommendation that Hillary not be charged and prosecuted.
Level of Bureau morale now? Too low to measure.
How would you feel, if you’d spent months uncovering multiple breaches of the law, all of which your boss admitted were quite real—and then he turned around and said the suspect—a Presidential candidate—was innocent?
It’s your job to prove serious violations occurred, and you did, in a case that would have been the highlight of your career, to say nothing of supporting a little item called justice; but then your work was flushed down the drain.
The next time a case even vaguely approaching the magnitude of this one is tossed in your lap, how much commitment are you going to be able to marshal? You’ll know your facts and findings could well be deemed irrelevant, because the person at the top of your food chain is doing politics, not law. He’s essentially working for players who aren’t in your agency. He’s breaking the law, but you can’t touch him.
Your paycheck feeds your family and pays the rent. You want to do the right thing, but you’re trapped. You joined up for honor, but that ideal is off the table.
Your colleagues at work, who feel their own outrage, advise you to keep your mouth shut and move straight ahead, if you want to hold on to your job and grab a promotion somewhere out in the future. That’s what they’re doing.
So you’re living in a culture of corruption.
How does that sit with you?
You’re not naïve. For years you’ve known government is riddled with corruption and lies. But this time, it hits you. Personally. You’re paying the price. You did something honest and important, and suddenly it was transformed into nothing, and you have to pretend all is well.
You’re an FBI agent. You sit and watch television night after night, as a Presidential candidate who should have been brought up on a felony charge, and thereby disqualified and scuttled, moves through the land and makes promises about what she’ll do as the next leader of the nation. You sit and watch, deepening your personal knowledge of how the system actually works.
You’re a federal agent, and once upon a time you thought you had signed on to work for the good of the Republic.
You’re learning, when the chips are down, you’re actually laboring for an extended crime family.
How does that sit? How does it feel?
Are you going to decide you were an idiot for believing in a ideal above and beyond gross personal advantage?
Are you now going to go over to the dark side, and look for ways to grease the wheels of your career?
Or are you, against long odds, somehow going to find a way to stick to your derided principles?
As you sit and watch the news of this Presidential campaign, night after night, that’s the question you ponder, trying to see a way through the darkness.
Where is the dawn?
Of course, you and a few of your colleagues, who were intimately involved in the Clinton investigation, could decide to go public. On the record. You could find a media outlet somewhere that would listen to you. You could turn over your notes of the Hillary interview, and you could swear on a stack of bibles that those notes are an accurate reflection of the proceeding. You could explain your other findings. Perhaps, in all her emails, you found criminal connections between Hillary’s State Department and the infamous Clinton Foundation. You could tell the whole truth. You could take that giant step. You could cause a national uproar. You could make your own federal case.
This, too, is going through your mind as you sit in the darkness.
Looking for a way out.
People have told you that, in life, some choices are hard.
But you didn’t really believe these choices would be yours.
Now they are.
You’re sitting in the dark, you’re flying solo.
Looking for that way out.
“I [name] do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”
At the end of your academy training, at your graduation ceremony, you took that oath, and as at every graduation, by long-standing tradition, the oath was personally administered by, of all people…
The Director of the FBI.

EXCLUSIVE: FBI Agents Say Comey ‘Stood In The Way’ Of Clinton Email Investigation
Kerry Picket

FBI agents say the bureau is alarmed over Director James Comey deciding not to suggest that the Justice Department prosecute Hillary Clinton over her mishandling of classified information.
According to an interview transcript given to The Daily Caller, provided by an intermediary who spoke to two federal agents with the bureau last Friday, agents are frustrated by Comey’s leadership. 

“This is a textbook case where a grand jury should have convened but was not. That is appalling,” an FBI special agent who has worked public corruption and criminal cases said of the decision. “We talk about it in the office and don’t know how Comey can keep going.”
The agent was also surprised that the bureau did not bother to search Clinton’s house during the investigation.
“We didn’t search their house. We always search the house. The search should not just have been for private electronics, which contained classified material, but even for printouts of such material,” he said.
“There should have been a complete search of their residence,” the agent pointed out. “That the FBI did not seize devices is unbelievable. The FBI even seizes devices that have been set on fire.”
Another special agent for the bureau that worked counter-terrorism and criminal cases said he is offended by Comey’s saying: “we” and “I’ve been an investigator.”
After graduating from law school, Comey became a law clerk to a U.S. District Judge in Manhattan and later became an associate in a law firm in the city. After becoming a U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York, Comey’s career moved through the U.S. Attorney’s Office until he became Deputy Attorney General during the George W. Bush administration.
After Bush left office, Comey entered the private sector and became general counsel and Senior Vice President for Lockheed Martin, among other private sector posts. President Barack Obama appointed him to FBI director in 2013 replacing out going-director Robert Mueller.
“Comey was never an investigator or special agent. The special agents are trained investigators and they are insulted that Comey included them in ‘collective we’ statements in his testimony to imply that the SAs agreed that there was nothing there to prosecute,” the second agent said. “All the trained investigators agree that there is a lot to prosecuted but he stood in the way.”
He added, “The idea that [the Clinton/e-mail case] didn’t go to a grand jury is ridiculous.”
According to Washington D.C. attorney Joe DiGenova, more FBI agents will be talking about the problems at bureau and specifically the handling of the Clinton case by Comey when Congress comes back into session and decides to force them to testify by subpoena.
DiGenova told WMAL radio’s Drive at Five last week, “People are starting to talk. They’re calling their former friends outside the bureau asking for help. We were asked to day to provide legal representation to people inside the bureau and agreed to do so and to former agents who want to come forward and talk. Comey thought this was going to go away.”
He explained, “It’s not. People inside the bureau are furious. They are embarrassed. They feel like they are being led by a hack but more than that that they think he’s a crook. They think he’s fundamentally dishonest. They have no confidence in him. The bureau inside right now is a mess.”
He added, “The most important thing of all is that the agents have decided that they are going to talk."

Retired FBI Special Agent Blows The Whistle On The Real Robert Mueller

Aida Parisio 2 minutes ago It was so obvious Muller is not to be trusted when I saw the smiles and dems congratulatory comments on the selection as the committee director. Comey may be in hot water and may have opened a can of worms, but this guy is his mentor and buddy. How can Trump have a fair investigation?

Robert Mueller is just as corrupt as Comey he is called a fixer in Washington. Research him he taught Comey everything he knows how to cover up.
