FBI employees discussed the January 5, 2017, briefing of Obama: “What’s the word on how O’s briefing went”? asked one employee, to which the other replied, “Don’t know but people here are scrambling for info to support certain things and it’s a mad house.” “Trump was right. Still not put together…why do we do this to ourselves. What is wrong with these people.”
FBI analysts knew it was so bad that they “all went and purchased professional liability insurance.”
The “concern when we got it was that there was a big leak at DOJ and the NYT among others was going to do a piece.” Further, “the new AG might have some questions…then yada yada yada…we all get screwed.” On January 13, 2017, FBI employees messaged that “someone leaked the Flynn calls with Kislyak to the WSJ.” In a response reeking with sarcasm, an FBI employee messaged “I’m so sorry to hear that. I’ll resume my duties as Chief Morale Officer and rectify that.”
Newly produced notes of Peter Strzok show that Strzok met with [deputy assistant attorney general] Bruce Swartz, Lisa, and George at DOJ on March 28, 2017, where he noted Flynn Intel Group “satisfied the registration obligation” and “no evidence of any willfulness.” Nonetheless, “Bruce” decided to issue subpoenas to Flynn Intel Group “and more.”
According to exhibits C and D: “The new Strzok-Page text messages show that Strzok played games with the FBI Sentinel serialization system and entry of 302s, Strzok and Page were pulling talking points from a Lawfare article, and “F’in Pamela Brown knows there were two phone call memos.” Further, “these text message reinforce how zealously Strzok and Page were working to oppose Trump’s election and subvert the peaceful transfer of power.”
These notes show clearly the degree to which the FBI was politicized. These guys are supposed to be the best of the best…. The untouchables, to coin a phrase. But it’s clear now that the seventh floor was about as corrupt as they come.
Now here’s something to think about: if these best of the best can be corrupted this easily and this completely, is it really beyond possibility that place is like the CDC and the military are not similarly corrupted?
Take the military, as an example. We know there was a political purge happening in the military during the Obama years. There’s a huge number of articles on this topic. By way of example one in I nvestors Daily , who said of Obama:
What the president calls “my military” is being cleansed of any officer suspected of disloyalty to or disagreement with the administration on matters of policy or force structure, leaving the compliant and fearful.
And that’s the military that President Trump is working with at the moment.
The CDC also seems rudderless outside of political motivations. The pronouncements they make seem designed to be used against orange man bad, until such time as somebody actually looks truthfully at the situation reveals the problem with the CDC pronouncement and it gets reversed. I’ve written about this one repeatedly .
And then there’s the USPS  upon which the Democrats have placed all their hopes.
Corruption, thy name be Democrat.
We certainly hope that we’re going to see some recompense for this corruption and corrective measures. But given the amount of corruption that we see, particularly in the agencies tasked with investigation and prosecution of such corruption, it’s a fair question as to whether or not it will actually happen.
