FBI's obstruction of justice

President Trump ordered the release of the House Intelligence memo on the FBI following his State of the union speech.

We know what is in it: the end of the Democratic Party's control of the Department of Justice and America's intelligence gathering operations.



Sara Carter laid some of it out last night.

First the background. Jim Comey refused to recommend the Obama administration seek felony charges against Hilary Clinton not because she was innocent. Comey had ample evidence of national security abuse by her when she was secretary of State. No, he used the flimsy excuse that gee, she did not intend to give away state secrets.

Comey's actions may have been part of a massive cover-up of Clinton criminality by the FBI when Comey directed it. Many of his accomplices are still in the FBI.

Sara Carter is an award-winning national security reporter.

From her bio, "In 2008, Sara was awarded the Society of Professional Journalists nationally recognized Sigma Delta Chi award for her multiple-part series in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico that uncovered the brutality of the Gulf and Sinaloa Cartel wars along the border."

I try to use the best sources possible, although when it to opinion, I'll quote a tweeter with 2,000 followers.

Carter is reliable on facts. She dropped the goods on deputy director Andrew McCabe's sudden resignation on Monday.

She appeared on "Hannity" last night. The key exchange:
Carter: What we know tonight is that FBI Director Christopher Wray went Sunday and reviewed the four-page FISA memo. The very next day, Andrew McCabe was asked to resign. Remember Sean, he was planning on resigning in March - that already came out in December. This time they asked him to go right away. You're not coming into the office. I've heard reports he didn't even come in for the morning meeting - that he didn't show up.
Hannity: A source of mine told me tonight that when Wray read this, it shocked him to his core.
Carter: Shocked him to his core, and not only that, the Inspector General's report -- I have been told tonight by a number of sources, there's indicators right now that McCabe may have asked FBI agents to actually change their 302's - those are their interviews with witnesses. So basically every time an FBI agent interviews a witness, they have to go back and file a report. 
Hannity: Changes? So that would be obstruction of justice? 
Carter: Exactly. This is something the Inspector General is investigating. If this is true and not alleged, McCabe will be fired. I heard they are considering firing him within the next few days if this turns out to be true. 
Power corrupts.

Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

That is what I see at the FBI, which is sad given my usually unwavering support of law enforcement.

Though hardly an anti-establishment fellow, former Bush 43 spokesman Ari Fleischer told Hannity: "I have regularly defended Bob Mueller. I used to defend James Comey on his investigation of Hillary. I can no longer do that. I think the investigation into Hillary has turned out to be a sham...In this instance, the FBI has let us all down."

Fleischer knows Mueller, who headed the FBI during 9/11 (having begun the job a week earlier). I am sure Fleischer consulted with Mueller to find out what was going on so Fleischer could answer reporters's questions.

There are good people in Washington.

One of them was the inspector general at the FBI.

Stay tuned.

Good news.

"Fake News Follies of 2017" will be available on Kindle on February 6.

Order it here.

The paperback edition will likely take orders this weekend.

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.

    1. I have no idea, but Donald Trump is not your usual politician, he has no relationship with the members of the DC swamp, and he seems (to me) to be someone who enjoys revenge.

    2. I wouldn't call it revenge. I'd call it JUSTICE. Trump was not attacked; the American people were.

  2. McCabe currently appears to be a person of interest (by the IG) with regard to the FBI's incomprehensible lack of curiosity about the emails Huma Abedin sent to her husband's laptop computer. We now know, through the Herculean efforts of Judicial Watch, that a considerable number of the emails she sent were confidential or classified, enough of them to warrant her indictment and prosecution for mishandling those documents (especially since her husband, Anthony Wiener, did not have a security clearance and was thus unauthorized to have possession of those documents).

    2. I worked for a fed contractor and
      due to the nature of the job, I had a security clearance. If I did one little thing wrong I'd still be stamping license plates. The debacle of Hillary and Huma should have gotten someoen put in jail!

  3. The thing that finally took down Robespierre was his final speech to the convention (he was supposed to have another, but got shouted down and you know the rest). In it he suggested that he had several more names of people he might be planning to denounce as traitors and counter-revolutionaries. This speech was the inspiration for a book and Movie called The Black Book, IIRC. This vagueness disturbed a great many people in government and in the convention who wondered whether they would be sent, rightly or wrongly, to the guillotine. They then set about seeing to it that he would not be able to act on any further intentions he might have. I think Joe McCarthy made the same mistake, and possibly even Nixon.

    I also think that the psychological effect of having a few insiders in government taking it upon themselves to ruin others based on whatever prejudices they may have eventually boomerangs back on them.

  4. And my uber-Lib brother has the gall to email me this afternoon and proclaim that Muh-ler has Trump dead to rights on obstruction. I'm dealing with seriously deranged people right now, y'all.

  6. The DOJ and FBI are filled with Democrat moles. They never thought Hillary would lose. Now they wonder if they are going to prison. They are hoping for a miracle. They are hoping the horse will sing.

    2. But what happens if the horse, instead of singing, cops a plea bargain?

  7. Please blog my whole article about a whistleblower that has leaked correspondence and written a letter to Congress about the FBI boss in Greensboro, NC resident office has ignored federal crimes committed by corrupt judicial employees. Actual perjury, obstruction of justice by cover up or destruction of prosecution records and sweeping a perjury case under the rug since the perjury was conducted by a witness of the US Attorney in a criminal case that they maliciously prosecuted in bad faith. This isn't the only case the FBI has ignored. They also ignored a case reported by U.S. Congressman Mark Walker (R-NC) regarding Phil Berger Junior. accused of campaign money laundering. The FBI in Greensboro is refusing to investigate cases of public corruption. If anybody in Government or campaign offices may be engaging in criminal behavior, tjhe FBI boss in Greensboro will likely say all of them are "merit-less". So any proof of a witness saying multiple false statements in federal court is "merit-less" in a Greensboro FBI case?

    A whistleblower has revealed corruption of the FBI boss at the Greensboro, North Carolina, FBI office at 1801 Stanley Road.

    He has revealed that the duty agent was already set to have the leaker come down to the FBI to give a statement in regards to his federal criminal complaint against a Assistant US Attorney witness that has committed perjury in order to wrongfully punish that witness and interfere with his ability to timely file his actual innocence claim for his 2255 motion.

    https://wp.me/p9wgvv-4w "LEAK: Docs regarding Greensboro, NC FBI shut down of perjury case, Wikileaks letter"

    Cover up and destruction of some of prosecution files as admitted by Cheryl Sloan, intimidation and gag order request by corrupt Asst. US Attorney Anand P. Ramaswamy. They are trying to gag order and seal all records proving that the Government's criminal case was absolute BS (yes Bull you-know-what) and was meant to taken down an journalist that was featured in a New York Times article before he was wrongfully railroaded on a crime that he didn't commit. So he leaked all documents through his mother to my blog. The FBI ain't too happy about that so they may come after him for what he did. We need all whistleblower support blogs to cover this issue. Please!
