The rogue FBI may collapse

The Fake News media may try to suppress it, but the news of the Democratic Party's attempt to hijack the Trump presidency is surfacing -- like a log in a commode.

"The longtime head of public affairs at the FBI -- who was a confidant of former director James Comey -- is planning to retire," Fox News reported.



His name is Michael Kortan. Mueller appointed him to the post in 2009. Public relations is at the core of the bureau. J. Edgar Hoover spent decades cultivating the press in a manner his successors emulated.

Jim Comey pissed it all away.

"Kortan was front and center during the Hillary Clinton email investigation, and especially in July 2016 -- coordinating media coverage and handing out copies of Comey’s public statement recommending against criminal charges in the investigation into mishandling of classified information. Kortan more recently surfaced in text messages released between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page," Fox News reported.

Those texts could be used as evidence in a court case.

Deputy Director Andrew McCabe is retiring soon as well.

The public is now learning of the use of the FBI to destroy evidence of Hillary's exposure of national secrets while helping to fabricate a dossier to justify spying on the Trump campaign.

This is go-to-jail stuff.

The problem is, who prosecutes these bad cops?

The Last Refuge reported: "DOJ National Security Division Official, David Laufman, Quits."

"David Laufman was the Department of Justice, National Security Division, Deputy Asst. Attorney General in charge of counterintelligence, cyber security, counterespionage and export controls."

He was part of the Protect Hillary-Spy on The Donald team.

"The FBI didn’t notice that some emails from Hillary Clinton’s private email server were marked classified with a '(C)' when they were sent — something that seemingly would have been one of the first and most obvious checks in an investigation, and one that FBI agents instantly recognized put the facts at odds with Clinton’s public statements," the Daily Caller reported.

"The Intelligence Community Inspector General spotted it after the FBI missed it, texts between FBI agent Peter Strzok and his mistress, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, reveal. 'Holy cow,' Strzok wrote, 'if the FBI missed this, what else was missed?'

"'Remind me to tell you to flag for Andy [redacted] emails we (actually ICIG) found that have portion marks (C) on a couple of paras. DoJ was Very Concerned about this,' he wrote."

The spin is this was incompetence.

I choose not to believe that.

RT -- Russia Today -- reported, "FBI texts suggest Comey could have lied under oath, staffers used Gmail for official business."

Remember when Trump warned Comey on Twitter that he may have tapes of their conversations? That forced Comey when he testified in June to recant things he testified to in May.

"The list of officials frequently discussed in the texts who are no longer in their jobs seems to grow by the day. It includes former FBI Director James Comey, who was fired by Trump; former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe; Comey’s chief of staff, James Rybicki; FBI General Counsel James Baker; as well as Strzok, who was booted off the special counsel investigation and sent to a job in the FBI’s personnel division," Politico reported.

I hope that by this time next year, there's a list of officials on their way to prison.

From Leslie Eastman's review at Legal Insurrection:
Surber, a recovering journalist with over 30 years of experience, has been cataloging the #FakeNews that has been regularly offered as serious analysis of President Donald Trump’s actions, policies, and opinions. He has brought his enormous collection together in the longest, most serious book he has yet written: Fake News Follies 2017.
"Fake News Follies of 2017" is available on Kindle and in paperback.

Autographed copies are available. Email me at DonSurber@GMail.com for details. I am including a "director's cut." I'll email you back the original Chapter 1 that I cut because while the chapter was amusing, it really had nothing to do with the "Fake News Follies of 2017."

Ben Garrison did the cover and I am so happy with it. I told him what the book was about, sent him a copy of the manuscript, and he came up with a perfect cover. I am so pleased.

  2. I am looking forward to your next book, "Trump the FBI", and its sequel "Trump the Deep State".

    These might be a bit more serious than the last couple.

    1. Some will.

      Check out the 'Asset and Forfeiture' EO that President Trump signed at the request of AG Session's early in 2017. It flew under the radar....as did all the structures that have been put in place to drain the swamp.

  4. James Brien Comey, mmm mmm mmm. The wife dotted-line reported to him when they were Lockheed several years back. She said he was one of the finest people she'd ever worked with. Well, hon, your bullshit detector must have gotten deactivated or something. Comey has already done more damage to the FBI than any Director in history. And he's not sorry! More Shoes To Drop - opening soon at a theater near you!

    2. Yes, McCabe was fired and snatched by our spec ops who took him to GITMO for interrogation. He sang very loudly and snitched quite extensively. After he was outfitted with an ankle bracelet he was released and is now under surveillance. McCabe was scared shitless while in GITMO and id not like it at all.
      I follow 'Q' very closely. It is a group of white hats working in the white house and abroad to do what must be done to catch and bring all those to justice that are guilty of treason, sedition and more.
      They will not face a civilian court but rather a military tribunals that is far along having 12 military judges who have been meeting secretly to discuss, study and prepare for the coming tribunal. Rather than the normal required 9 judges there are 12 that will be seated because charges of treason are pending that involve the death penalty ergo the requirement of 12 judges.
      Floow Q along on #Qanon, #Q and the host of other links referenced.
      You will be surprised how busy our military spec ops are, the people the snatch trying to flee the country and other ops underway.
      Q said that will be NO DEALS given to anyone involved. He mentioned that Hillary tried 5 different times to get a deal and the answer remains 'NO". Imagine that.

    1. I keep having fantasies of the old days...gather them up and take them to Ft. Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas. The German and Canadian cruise ship tourists could then take the half day boat out there for 50 bucks a head. I'd be willing to sell tickets, MAGA hats, and Lock Them Up Tee's somewhere amidst the used condoms on Duval St.

      The fort is still in surprisingly good shape with the exception of the moisture, land crabs, man eating mosquitoes, and lack of fresh water.

    Sure. But according to the MSM, there's really nothing to see here.

    From one perspective it's being said that the MSM is missing the biggest American government corruption story in history. From another perspective it's understandable, as they've been a willing party to it.

    If you're running low, stop at Costo or Sam's Club and get another large size box of popping corn. This runs until the IG report in March. Then we get a Special Counsel, and from there even more bombshells and resignations will be happening at least once a week, right up to and past the 2018 election.

    History in the making. A free country taking back its freedom from globalist bureaucrats. Have faith in your fellow Americans! Not their fault, many have been brainwashed by the MSM. It'll take time for them to realize it. The majority will see the light. 15-20% won't. They're the ones that did the brainwashing.

    1. I'll wait to buy my pop corn until I see the IG report. He may say all the agents did not have "intent" to commit a crime. Where did I hear that before?

    2. You need to read up on Mr. Horowitz. He fought Obama tooth and nail in order to do his job. Formed an alliance with Congressional Committee's, and benefited when Senator Chuck Grassley pushed through a bill to allow him (and other IG's) to do his/their job.

      IG Horowitz's investigation has been going on since a week before Trump too office. He has a staff of 450 professionals. Much of what you are reading/heraring and much of what caused the resignations are directly due to early release of some of Horowitz's findings.

      People like Mr. Horowitz out their careers, families futures, and personal safety at risk to do the right thing. Try not to be so smug.

  9. I rise to object to Ms Eastman's characterization of Mr. Surber as a recovering journalist. Ms Eastman conflates the activity of journalism with a mere profession. That is analogous to saying the only people who qualified to comment on sex are whores.

    You can be incompetent and still be malevolent. Witness Germany (and, if you know some of the behind the geisha house stuff, Japan) 1941-45.

  11. I dunno. The left waited two terms for Rove to be frogmarched to the pokey with the same high level of expectation. Never happened.

    The other shoe never seems to drop.

    What we're seeing is probably what we're going to get: a bunch of high- and mid-level officials who, like Lois Lerner, will be allowed to retire with their full pensions and not a single blemish on their records.

    They'll all end up with new gigs on CNN and MSNBC.

    2. The difference (I hope) is that Rove didn’t commit a crime. Just a leftists wet dream.

      That said, I expect most of these criminals to escape prosecution.

  16. So what we all "knew" from the start has turned out to be real all along. The Clintons are corrupt to the core. Barama is corrupt to the core. His admin was corrupt to the core. The FBI under Mueller and Comey both was corrupt to the core. The DoJ was, and probably still is, very corrupt. The national intel agencies are very corrupt. Several battalions worth of 'operatives,' from top to bottom, should go to jail for several centuries. Then America, maybe, can begin to recover from all this treason.
