IG Report “Appearance of Bias”…Why Horowitz Was Soft on Comey

June 15, 2018

untitled (246).png

This could end up being the worst thing that could happen to the Democrats and their electoral chances. This is gonna rev people up and it’s gonna keep ’em involved and in the game as just another bit of evidence of why the swamp needs to be drained. Now, that’s a premature comment based on the fact that I haven’t read this whole thing yet. It’s kind of a prediction based on an “if” it contains what is said to be a soft cover-up. It may not be. – Rush Limbaugh, 6/14/18

Yesterday was a special day. Not only was it President Donald J. Trump’s 72nd birthday, but it was also the day that the long-awaited IG Report on the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton E-mail Scandal was made public.

Per Gregg Re of FoxNews.com, the seven key takeaways from the FBI Inspector General’s report on the Hillary Clinton E-mail Scandal are:

1. New texts between FBI lovers Strzok and Page were ‘disappointing’ and cast a shadow over the integrity of the entire Clinton email probe.

2. Five unnamed FBI employees — including one lawyer who later worked on the Mueller probe — are under scrutiny for anti-Trump bias.

3. Investigators didn’t give a good reason for not pursuing laptops and cellphones belonging to Clinton’s senior aides.

4.  Despite Clinton connections, former Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik and former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe didn’t fully recuse themselves.

5. ‘Insubordinate’ Ex-FBI Director James Comey repeatedly violated policy and inaccurately described the legal situation surrounding Clinton’s emails.

6. Former Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch made errors in judgment during the Clinton probe.

7. FBI agents’ actions surrounding the DOJ/FBI interview of Hillary Clinton were ‘inappropriate’ and created appearance of bias.

An “appearance of bias”?

Correction: a REALITY of bias.

There is a reason why Inspector General Horowitz was reticent to blatantly declare the existence of political bias in the upper echelon of the FBI:

As President Trump once stated, He is an “Obama Guy”.

Let’s look at the IG’s history.

  • He received his Juris Doctor from Harvard, where he was taught by the likes of upstanding individuals like Barney Franks.
  • Horowitz worked in DOJ from 1991 to 2002. In the early 1990s, he worked for former fired FBI Director Comey while the two of them were in the Southern District of New York.
  • He worked from 2002 to 2012 as a partner at Cadwalader, Wickersham, & Taft LLP, where he specialized in on white-collar defense, internal investigations, and regulatory compliance.
  • Horowitz was nominated by President Obama in July 2011 to be Inspector General of the DOJ.
  • He has been Inspector General since starting in 2012 under the Obama Administration.

Yes, gentle readers. He worked for Comey in the Southern District of New York.

That’s why he did not go after Comey as roughly as he could (or should) have.

And, as you read above, one of those who have been recommended for investigation, worked on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Staff in the ongoing Russia Probe.

These “ties that bind” are most definitely not “blessed”.

They are corrupt.

As the rapidly escalating unraveling of the “Russia Probe” falsehood has demonstrated, the professional bureaucrats who served in the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the Obama Administration were more interested in serving their bosses than in the cause of justice.

No only did they know of Hillary’s  cavalier treatment of top-secret e-mails, they also knew that she used the Clinton Foundation as her and Bubba’s very own “Laundromat”, “cleaning up” copious donations from foreign powers who sought favorable treatment from the State Department under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

It is now very apparent that the corruption ran so deep in the Halls of Power during this time that they were all standing on their tiptoes trying to see above it.

It is also apparent that the DOJ and the FBI had no interest in investigating Hillary, as they were too busy playing footsie with Christopher Steele, Cody Shearer, and Richard Blumenthal in their mission to knock Donald J. Trump out of the Race for the Presidency.

While IG Horowitz did his best not to overtly condemn those in power in the FBI during the Obama Administration, he certainly did expose their corruption and political bias for all the world to see.

Until He Comes,

McCabe Sues DOJ Over Firing Just Before IG Report Release…Squirrel!

June 13, 2018

untitled (244)

Remember when you were a child and you did something wrong, like breaking your Mom’s favorite vase and when she asked you about it, you claimed that you did not know what happened?

A disgraced Former Deputy Director of the FBI and his lawyers are attempting the same strategy.

FoxNews.com reports that

Lawyers representing former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe filed a suit against the Justice Department and FBI on Tuesday, alleging that they wouldn’t give up files connected to his ouster.

McCabe’s lawyers claimed the Justice Department has denied access to the sought-after information out of concern that the documents could be later used against them, the lawsuit said. The suit also named the office of the DOJ inspector general.

“We don’t create or adjudicate under secret law or procedure,” David Snyder, a lawyer representing McCabe, told The Associated Press.

A representative for the Justice Department did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

McCabe was fired in March just a few days shy of his retirement by Attorney General Jeff Sessions after it was reported that McCabe leaked a story to the press and later lied about it to former FBI Director James Comey.

His dismissal followed a report from the inspector general’s office earlier this year that concluded McCabe repeatedly deceived investigators. It referred the matter for potential criminal prosecution to the U.S. attorney’s office in Washington. McCabe has denied the allegations and said that when he thought his answers were being misunderstood during interviews with investigators, he tried to correct the record.

According to the lawsuit, McCabe’s firing came after “proceedings that violated federal law and departed from applicable administrative rules, standards, policies and procedures.” It noted that the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requires related documents to be produced for review.

“Defendants, however, have not disclosed those materials, whether proactively or upon request from Plaintiff as counsel for Mr. McCabe. That failure is contrary to law,” the lawsuit said. “It is incongruous with Defendants’ public, and repeated, representations to the effect that Mr. McCabe was dismissed from the FBI following an ‘extensive and fair investigation’ which was carried out ‘according to Department of Justice procedure.'”

McCabe’s lawyers signaled they wanted “immediate” access to documents including an inspector general manual outlining the guidelines governing the office and FBI policy guides on how disciplinary matters should be handled.

McCabe’s lawyers said they wanted the records as they “seek to vindicate Mr. McCabe’s rights and restore his good name,” and as they weighed whether to take more legal action.

Why should you have been fired, Former Deputy Director McCade?

Well, for starters a very revealing report was issued by the Department of Justice back in April, revealed that you misled investigators multiple times about your role in a news media leak. The report states that investigators

“…concluded that McCabe’s decision to confirm the existence of the CF Investigation through an anonymously sourced quote, recounting the content of a phone call with a senior Department official in a manner designed to advance his personal interests at the expense of Department leadership, was clearly not within the public interest exception.”

Also…

The DOJ’s April report found that McCabe authorized a leak to a Wall Street Journal reporter about the contents of a telephone call in August 2016.

“Among the purposes of the disclosure was to rebut a narrative that had been developing following a story in the WSJ on October 23, 2016, that questioned McCabe’s impartiality in overseeing FBI investigations involving [Clinton], and claimed that McCabe had ordered the termination of the [FBI’s Clinton Foundation investigation] due to Department of Justice pressure,” the report says.

In January, The Journal reported that McCabe knew of thousands of emails related to the Clinton investigation for at least a month before Comey told Congress about them. 

The day he was fired, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement that “the FBI expects every employee to adhere to the highest standards of honesty, integrity, and accountability.” 

About that whole “integrity” thingy…

McCabe’s wife, Dr. Jill McCabe, ran for a Virginia State Senate seat in 2015. The political action committee for then-Virginia Governor McAuliffe, a Democrat and Clinton ally, donated $467,500 to her campaign, while the Virginia Democratic party gave $207,788, The Journal reported. Andrew McCabe was associate deputy director of the FBI at the time.

McCabe “played no role, attended no events, and did not participate in fundraising or support of any kind,” the FBI told The Journal in a statement. “Months after the completion of her campaign, then-Associate Deputy Director McCabe was promoted to Deputy, where, in that position, he assumed for the first time, an oversight role in the investigation into Secretary Clinton’s emails.”

Even with McAuliffe’s help, Dr. McCabe lost the election.

A Former Presidential Administration weaponized the FBI and DOJ for the purposes of not only spying on , but also sabotaging the Candidacy and Presidency of Donald J. Trump.

These Deep State Operatives, loyal to the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party, protected both President Barack Hussein Obama and Former Candidate Hillary Clinton, while using both the Bureaucratic and Electronic Tools at their disposal to somehow attempt to keep Trump from Becoming President.

Having failed at that, they invented the fictitious Russian Collusion Narrative as both a distraction and an impediment, in order to prevent President Trump from fulfilling his Campaign Promise to “Make America Great Again”.

This “Secret Society” within the FBI, ensconced in their Swamp of Bureaucracy, considered themselves, as most of the Liberal Elite do, to be smarter than everybody else, “untouchable”, and, evidently, above the laws of the nation which they had sworn to uphold and its citizens whom they had sworn to serve.

And now, with the Inspector General’s Report on the activities of the FBI concerning their involvement with Hillary Clinton’s “E-mailgate”, one of those whose activities will most certainly be included in said report is throwing a “Hail Mary” Legal Maneuver” in hopes of distracting from the fact that he knows exactly why he was fired.

Just as Former FBI Director James Comey published a book and went on a press tour in order to attempt to cover his duplicitous activities, so is Former Deputy Director McCabe attempting to change the public’s perception of him by acting “innocent”.

Considering how poorly Comey’s effort was received, one would have thought that McCabe would have learned a lesson.

It appears that he hasn’t.

However, he had better “study up on it”.

There will be a “Pop Quiz” tomorrow.

Until He Comes,

Mueller’s Team of Dem Donors Have Spent $16 Million of Taxpayers’ Money…So Far

June 1, 2018

scope-redacted-dt-600

According to USNews.com,

President Donald Trump declared Thursday that he didn’t fire FBI Director James Comey over the Russia investigation, despite previously citing that as the reason. His lawyer, meanwhile, blasted federal investigators as “a lynching mob” the Trump team will “knock the heck out of” in the end.

The president has said at least twice that Comey’s firing in May 2017 was related to the FBI’s investigation into whether Trump’s campaign associates coordinated with Russia in an effort to sway the 2016 election. And his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, told Fox News earlier this month that Trump fired Comey because the FBI director wouldn’t publicly state that he “wasn’t a target” of the Russia investigation.

Trump’s attempt to revise his public statements on Comey’s firing came as Giuliani drew criticism for comparing special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation to a “lynching mob.”

So, exactly how much has this “lunching mob cost American Taxpayers?

Bloomberg.com reports that

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election has cost more than $16 million during its first year, according to the Justice Department. 
 
The department on Thursday released the latest spending tally, compiled by Mueller’s office, showing that $10 million was spent from Oct. 1 to March 31. Mueller’s direct spending during the time period was about $4.5 million.
 
The rest reflects spending by Justice Department components in support of his investigation, which includes whether President Donald Trump or anyone close to him colluded with Russians. The department said the components would have incurred those expenses even if the special counsel didn’t exist — an indication of how embedded investigative activities are within the department. 
 
The Justice Department previously reported that about $6.7 million was spent from the time Mueller was appointed special counsel in May 2017 to the end of September. 
 
Personnel and Travel

The majority of funds spent by Mueller in the latest period — about $2.7 million — went for personnel, with the rest going to travel, office space and contracting services, the Justice Department said.

The Justice Department has budgeted $10 million for Mueller to spend in fiscal 2019, which begins on Oct. 1. Trump has seized on that figure in tweets attacking the investigation.

About Mueller’s personnel…

Sixteen members of Mueller’s Investigative Team were Democrat Donors. But, 13…16…what’s a few more Democrats in Mueller’s lynch mob, anyway?

Mueller and his cadre of Liberal SS Troops have made it their mission to undermine Trump through the continuance of their Dog and Pony Show, which they euphemistically called “an investigation”.

The more that Mueller and his troops insist that they are non-biased, the more information comes forth that they have been and still are holdovers from the Clinton Administration, working as Deep State Operatives to do unto Trump as Brutus did unto Caesar.

They are proving themselves to be nothing but Trump Haters with no actual evidence of any kind that President Trump “colluded” with the Russians.

Several members of Mueller’s Team worked for the same Law Firm, WilmerHale, a huge Donor to the Democratic Party.

Anyone who has ever worked for the Law Firm of WilmerHale has donated to the Democratic Party…including Special Counsel Robert Mueller!

Courtesy of OpenSecrets.org, here is a history of WilmerHale’s Political Donations from 1990-2018.

If you look at the Total Percentage of Political Contributions made by the Law Firm that Robert Mueller and several of his “investigators” worked for, you will notice that over the last 28 years, Wilmer Hale has donated approximately 8.5 million dollars to individual political candidates with 66% of those funds going to Democrats and only 31% going to Republicans.

Now. let’s get down to the number crunching….

Check out WilmerHale’s political donations for the 2016 Election Cycle. They gave $1,484,082 in total contributions. 76% of that total went to Democrats, including I am sure, a sizable chunk to the Presidential Campaign of Hillary Clinton. Only 21% of their Political Donations for the year of 2016 went to Republican Candidates.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller was a partner at Hale and Dorr LLP, an affiliate of WilmerHale, from 1993-1995. In 1994, that Law Firm gave a Total of $64,525 in Political Donations to Individual Candidates. $40,550 went to Democrats. $23,975 went to Republicans. The percentages broke down to 63% and 37%, respectively.

Robert Mueller was hired at WilmerHale in March of 2014 and stayed there until he was appointed Special Counsel in May of 2017.

That means that he was a contributor through his Law Firm to two Election Cycles, the 2014 Midterm Elections and the 2016 Presidential Election.

For over one year now, we have been hearing from the Democratic Leadership as to how Special Counsel Mueller’s integrity is above reproach. I do not personally know the man, so I have no first-hand knowledge of whether it is or not.

However, is it just me…or does it appear to be a gross Conflict of Interest for the Special Counsel and several members of his staff, who are conducting an exhaustive, no boundaries investigation searching for possible malfeasance of the part of a sitting Republican President and his staff, to have been members of a Law Firm with a very long and lucrative history of heavy donations to the Democratic Party?

With no evidence of collusion with the Russians on the part of Donald J. Trump having been found and assurances from Mueller that Trump is NOT his target, then what, at this point, is the purpose of the Special Counsel’s Ongoing Investigation?

The only logical conclusion that can be made is that Mueller and his Investigative Team are performing a service not unlike the service that David Axlerod performed for Barack Hussein Obama when he ran for the Senate in Illinois. Mueller and his team are digging up whatever dirt that they can find, using whatever means necessary, including going way out of their jurisdiction, is order to damage and possibly end the Presidency of Donald J. Trump.

That being said, it is time for Trump to get a new Attorney General and for that Attorney General to pull the plug out of the wall from Special Counsel Mueller’s Money Machine.

The IG Report is due out on June 5th.

There will be some actual investigating of government officials that will need to be taken care of after it is released.

And, Mueller and team won’t be able to do it.

After all…they contributed to them.

Comey Denies Knowing Who Funded the Steele Dossier…No, Really

April 27, 2018

ap-james-comey-clinton

Last night, on Special Report With Bret Baier on the Fox News Channel, Former FBI Director James Comey speaking about sharing memos about his conversations with President Trump with his friend and Special Government Agent, Columbia Law Professor Daniel Richman. Comey also shared the memos with the rest of his legal team.

Per FoxNews.com,

Comey also denied knowing who was behind the leak about the infamous anti-Trump dossier that was later revealed to have been used to obtain a surveillance warrant for former Trump campaign aide Carter Page. Comey also claimed he never knew exactly who funded the dossier.

Asked when he learned that the DNC and Hillary Clinton campaign funded Steele’s work, Comey said: “I still don’t know that for a fact.” 

He went on to say, “I have only seen it in the media. I never knew exactly which Democrats had funded.”

Asked about FBI employees Peter Strzok and Lisa Page – whose anti-Trump text messages have been seized upon by Republicans — Comey said he would have “removed both of them from any contact with significant investigations” had he been aware of the texts.

“It was such poor judgment,” he said.

Pressed on whether Strzok and Page’s work should be questioned, Comey acknowledged, “It’s a reasonable question to ask.” 

“And I can tell you this. When I saw the text, I was deeply disappointed in them,” he said. “But I never saw any bias, any reflection of any kind of animus towards anybody.”

Comey is doing television interviews to promote his new book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership,” in which he blasted the president for everything from his integrity to his height, skin and hair.

Comey has a selective memory when it comes to the funding of the dossier.

Especially, when there was also a second one in his custody.

On February 1st of this year, Judicial Watch reported that

The strange case of the Russian dossier got even stranger this week with a new report from the Guardian raising a name from the seamy side of Clinton past. A “second Trump-Russia dossier” has been turned over to the FBI, the Guardian reported. The second dossier was compiled by Cody Shearer, who the Guardian identifies as a “a controversial political activist and former journalist who was close to the Clinton White House in the 1990s.”

That’s putting it mildly. Shearer in fact has long been linked to the sleaziest aspects of the Clinton operation, mainly through his close relationship with Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal. Longtime observers of the Clinton ecosystem know that when Cody appears, Sid Blumenthal is not far behind. A ceaseless schemer, Blumenthal was so offensive to the Obama White House that he was banned from an official role at Mrs. Clinton’s State Department. But that barely slowed him down. As documented by Judicial Watch and others, Blumenthal was a constant presence by Mrs. Clinton’s side during her State Department years.

Blumenthal and Shearer are connected to a global network of intelligence and military freelancers. They played a dangerous game meddling in Libyan affairs after the fall of Muammar Gaddafi. They supplied intelligence to Secretary of State Clinton in the weeks leading up to the Benghazi debacle and pitched deals to make money off the Libyan turmoil. ProPublica reports at length on the Blumenthal and Shearer’s Libyan efforts here. According to Judicial Watch’s reporting, during Mrs. Clinton’s State Department tenure, Blumenthal also promoted African business deals and meddled in European Union elections.

As for Shearer, he has a long history of dirty tricks. He’s been linked to Whitewater-era efforts to dirty up Bill Clinton critics; to shakedown politics involving the Cheyenne-Arapaho Indian tribe; and to fronting for Bosnian Serb butcher Radovan Karadzic. Read more about it here and here.

The Guardian reports that the new Shearer document makes some of the same allegations about Mr. Trump as the original Christopher Steele dossier, including “lewd acts at a five-star hotel” in Moscow. It also notes that Steele passed on the Shearer report to the FBI in October 2016, but would not vouch for its accuracy. That’s worth pausing over.

According to the Guardian, Steele provided “a copy [of the Shearer report] because it corresponded with what he had separately heard from his own independent sources.” If the reporting here is accurate, that’s quite a coincidence—that Cody Shearer and Christopher Steele were hearing the same things from different sources at pretty much the same time. A closer look at timelines and sources might be revealing. If Sid and Cody are behind the original Russian dossier sources, that would be big news indeed.

In an article posted on the 17th of March, Aaron Klein of Breitbart.com, stated that

Comey’s FBI may have utilized a second dossier authored by Cody Shearer, a shadowy former tabloid journalist who has long been closely associated with various Clinton scandals.

If you believe that the head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation did not know what his top agents were involved in nor have any knowledge of the Secretary of State’s activities and those of her confidantes’, I have two bridges over the Mississippi River at Memphis, Tennessee to sell you.

President Ronald Reagan used to say that the nine words that you never want to hear were

I’m from the Government and I’m here to help.

Now, don’t get me wrong. The rank and file of the FBI is composed of many stellar, heroic agents, who love this country and work sacrificially every day, serving with honor.

The hierarchy, composed mainly of Professional Bureaucrats like James Comey, is another matter.

Being political appointees holding political opinions, while carrying political obligations to a certain political party, never bodes well in a position of legal authority.

Add into that mix an extra-marital affair between these bureaucrats and, to paraphrase, “the affairs of mice and men (and agents) will indeed go awry”.

The Professional Bureaucrats in the DOJ and the FBI were involved in a Deep State Covert Operation whose many levels of intrigue resembled a spider’s web of corruption at the highest levels

Since the kinky days of J. Edgar Hoover, the hierarchy of the FBI have run clandestine investigations of public figures, both political and cultural leaders.

J. Edgar did it to hold onto his office and to have political leverage against his enemies, as he had skeletons in his own closet…and dresses, too.

But, I digress.

In this case however, the hierarchy of the FBI did it to circumvent the will of the American People and to install Hillary Clinton as the 45th President, thus protecting the status quo in the Halls of Power in Washington, DC.

When that didn’t happen, they determined to bring President Trump down, by any means necessary, including creating a fake story of Russian Collusion.

Thanks to two agents who decided to do the Extramarital Mattress Mambo and text each other thousands of times, written evidence was provided to support the FISA Memo.

And now, we have Former FBI Director James Comey, a Professional Bureaucrat and Political Weasel, trying desperately to sell a book before the spider’s web of corruption which he helped to spin collapses down around him.

My late Former Father-in-law was a retired Police Lieutenant, who had worked with the FBI on several high-profile cases.

To say that he wasn’t a fan would be an understatement.

According to him, the letters FBI stood for “F—ing Bunch of Idiots”.

In the case of the FBI’s “Secret Society” of Deep State Covert Operatives, darned if he wasn’t right.

Comey’s Law Professor Leaker Was an Unpaid FBI Employee With Democrat Contacts

April 25, 2018

untitled (237)

James Comey leaked CLASSIFIED INFORMATION to the media. That is so illegal! – President Donald J. Trump, July 10, 2017, Twitter

FoxNews.com reports that

The Columbia law professor James Comey used as a go-between last year to leak the contents of sensitive memos to the media confirmed to Fox News on Tuesday that he previously worked as a “special government employee” (SGE) for Comey’s FBI on an unpaid basis. 
 
The professor, Daniel Richman, confirmed the special status in response to an inquiry from Fox News, while referring other questions, including on the scope of his work, to the FBI. 

“I did indeed have SGE status with the Bureau (for no pay),” Richman wrote in an email.

Richman emerged last year as the former FBI director’s contact for leaking memos documenting his private discussions with President Trump – memos that are now the subject of an inspector general review over the presence of classified material. Sources familiar with Richman’s status at the FBI told Fox News that he was assigned to “special projects” by Comey, and had a security clearance as well as badge access to the building. Richman’s status was the subject of a Memorandum of Understanding.

While Richman’s portfolio included the use of encrypted communications by terror suspects, the sources said Richman also was sent talking points about the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation. Those talking points attempted to compare and contrast Clinton’s use of an unsecured personal server exclusively for government business with the case of retired Gen.David Petraeus, who shared classified information with his biographer and mistress Paula Broadwell, as well as the case brought against the late Sandy Berger. The former national security adviser under President Clinton pleaded guilty to the unauthorized removal and retention of classified material from the National Archives.  

Incidentally, another “special government employee” who has come under scrutiny was Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, among others, previously questioned Abedin’s special status that allowed her to work at the Clinton State Department and private-sector entities at the same time.

So, just who is this “Special Government Agent”?

According to his bio at Columbia.law.edu

Daniel C. Richman is the Paul J. Kellner Professor of Law at Columbia Law School.

Richman is a former federal prosecutor who served as chief appellate attorney in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, and has served as a consultant to the Department of Justice and the Department of the Treasury on federal criminal matters. Richman was the Brendan Moore Professor in Advocacy at Fordham Law School before joining Columbia Law School’s faculty. In 2004, Richman was appointed by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg as chairman of the Local Conditional Release Commission. He is currently an adviser to FBI Director James B. Comey.

Richman’s scholarly writings include more than 30 law review articles. He has offered testimony as an expert in a number of congressional hearings, and state, federal, and international criminal and civil matters.

Richman graduated from Harvard and received his Juris Doctorate from Yale.

According to The Federalist Society,  his distinguished accomplishments also include Peer Reviewer, National Institute of Justice, U.S. Department of Justice, 2000-present; Chairman, Local Conditional Release Commission for the City of New York, 10/2004- 9/2005 (appointed by Mayor Michael Bloomberg); and Member, Homeland Security Policy Advisory Committee, Governor-Elect Eliot Spitzer, 2006.

The National Institute of Justice is the research, development and evaluation agency of the U.S. Department of Justice.

Professional peer review focuses on the performance of professionals, with a view to improving quality, upholding standards, or providing certification. In academia, peer review is common in decisions related to faculty advancement and tenure.

As you can also see, Richman was appointed to positions in the New York City and State Governments by two well-known , but not well-liked Democrats, Michael Bloomberg and Eliot Spitzer. It is worth noting that, on March 10, 2008, The New York Times reported that Governor of New York Eliot Spitzer had patronized an elite escort service run by Emperors Club VIP. The ensuing scandal led to him receiving criticism and ridicule in the media, and eventually Spitzer resigned as Governor a week later on March 17.

So, exactly how deep does the infiltration of the Deep State into our DOJ and FBI run?

Deeper than the Marianas Trench, gentle readers.

The use of “Special Government Agents” like Dr. Richman and Hillary’s BFF, Huma Abedin, allows the DOJ and FBI access to not only the Halls of Power in Washington, but to Power Brokers in Academia, Business, and even among our enemies. Don’t forget, Huma Abedin has family members who are active in the Muslim Brotherhood.

I have been chronicling since President Trump’s Presidential Campaign started as to how he threatened to upset the Washingtonian Status Quo and how the Democratic Elite and the Vichy Republicans as well, viewed him as an “outsider” unfit to hold the highest office in the land.

They still do and what “Deep State” Washington Bureaucrats and those in the Private Sector who want the status quo to continue are willing to do to “get rid of” the 45th President of the United States of America knows no bounds.

Rudy Giuliani Joins Trump’s Legal Team…Why Now?

April 20, 2018

rudy-giuliani-donald-trump-a0327630-ce86-4edc-b902-d644d75b96d3

My father taught me, in boxing, that when you – particularly when you get hit in the face for the first time – you’re going to panic. That instead of panicking, just accept it. Stay calm. And any time anybody hits you, they always leave themselves open to be hit. – Rudy Giuliani

The Daily Beast reports that

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is joining President Donald Trump’s personal legal team to help with Special Counsel Bob Mueller’s probe into potential Russian meddling in the 2016 election, The Washington Post reported on Thursday.

News that the two had been discussing a role was first reported by The Daily Beast earlier in the day.

Though talks had been ongoing, a formal announcement was delayed by a slew of foreign policy matters that took over much of the president’s time and agenda. A source familiar with the arrangement said that Trump had been preoccupied by North Korea and Syria, which limited his availability to speak with potential new members of his legal team.

Giuliani told the Post that he was joining the team “because I hope we can negotiate an end to this for the good of the country and because I have high regard for the president and for Bob Mueller.”

In a statement, the president said: “Rudy is great. He has been my friend for a long time and wants to get this matter quickly resolved for the good of the country.”

And Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow added: “I have had the privilege of working with Mayor Giuliani for many years, and we welcome his expertise. Mayor Giuliani expressed his deep appreciation to the President for allowing him to assist in this important matter.” Sekulow additionally announced the hiring of Jane Serene Raskin and Marty Raskin, both former federal prosecutors, to join the president’s legal team.

This is very welcome news.

Many Americans, including myself, wanted Giuliani to be Trump’s Attorney General or Homeland Security Director.

The reason being, Rudy Giuliani is a very capable man, as he proved as the Mayor of New York City on the horrific day of September 11, 2001.

So, why now?

Why is the President pushing hard to end the Dog and Pony Show known as the “Russian Probe”?

Probably because he feels like Mueller will be receptive to overtures to fold up his tent and go home.

It came out yesterday that the Inspector General’s Report which everyone has been waiting on will come out on May 8th.

If that report truly does contain all the information about the shenanigans going on during the Obama Administration involving Obama, Hillary, the FBI, and the rest of the Deep State, Mueller had better wrap things up post hate, since he was the mule who facilitated the sale of one-fifth of our nation’s Uranium Supply to the Russians.

His friends in the FBI already have problems of their own, with McCabe being referred to the DOJ for prosecution and Comey throwing him under the bus while on his tour to promote his book which isn’t selling.

Meanwhile, 15 pages of Comey’s infamous memos, which he took while having confidential meetings with President Trump, were released yesterday. In one of them

Comey wrote that Trump told him directly, “I need loyalty.””I replied that he would always get honesty from me,” said Comey. “[Trump] paused and said that’s what he wants, ‘honest loyalty.’ I replied, ‘you will get that from me.'”

“It is possible we understood that phrase differently,”

Gee, DiNozzo. Ya think?

I have been writing for months that the Trump Russian Collusion Fairy tale is actually a False Flag Operation designed by the Democratic Party Hierarchy, their Propaganda Arm, the Main Street Media, and their operatives on Capitol Hill and within the Trump Administration itself, to keep the nation’s attention diverted to the Trump/Russia Lie, when in reality the Uranium One Treasonous Operation by Hillary Clinton WAS AND REMAINS THE STORY.

However, I was wrong. Uranium One is just a PART of the story.

The Machiavellian Machinations of the Obama Administration in their attempt to prevent Donald J. Trump from becoming our 45th President is a spider’s web of intrigue and dirty tricks resembling a Tom Clancy Novel on steroids.

With the addition of Rudy Giuliani to Trump’s legal team, perhaps we can put an end to the investigating of a fairy tale and begin a full and righteous investigation of the treasonous activities of an out-of-control Presidential Administration and their Deep State Operatives who sought to retain the power of the Presidency for the Democratic Party and thereby maintain the Washingtonian Status Quo by any means necessary.

Comey Compares Trump to “Mob Boss” in New Book, Ignores Own Corruption

April 13, 2018

Trump_Comey_93371.jpg-b1c59_c0-58-4617-2749_s885x516

“No wonder disgraced former FBI Director James Comey was so bad at running the bureau: He can’t tell a mob boss from a duly elected leader of the free world.” – Sean Hannity

FoxNews.com reports that

The fired FBI Director James Comey describes President Trump as “untethered to truth” and “ego-driven” in his explosive forthcoming book “A Higher Loyalty,” according to excerpts obtained by The Associated Press and other news outlets Thursday.

In the book, which hits shelves April 17, Comey goes so far as to question the strength of Trump’s marriage to his wife, Melania, after revealing that Trump asked him to investigate salacious allegations about his actions with Russian prostitutes.

“It bothered [President Trump] if there was ‘even a one percent chance’ his wife, Melania, thought it was true,” Comey wrote, according to the New York Post. Later on, Comey mused: “In what kind of marriage, to what kind of man, does a spouse conclude there is only a 99 percent chance her husband didn’t do that?”

The claim was repeated in a dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele and published by BuzzFeed News in January 2017, shortly before Trump’s inauguration.

That wasn’t the only personal jab at Trump: The AP reported that Comey, who stands 6-foot-8, described the president as shorter than he expected with a “too long” tie and “bright white half-moons” under his eyes that he suggested came from tanning goggles. He also said he made a conscious effort to check the president’s hand size — briefly a subject of mockery among Trump’s Republican rivals on the campaign trail — saying it was “smaller than mine, but did not seem unusually so.”

According to The Washington Post, Comey described Trump’s presidency as a “forest fire” and wrote that his interactions with the administration recalled “my earlier career as a prosecutor against the Mob.

“The silent circle of assent. The boss in complete control. The loyalty oaths. The us-versus-them worldview,” Comey reportedly wrote. “The lying about all things, large and small, in service to some code of loyalty that put the organization above morality and above the truth.”

The New York Post reported that Comey returned to the Mafia theme in describing a Jan. 27 dinner with Trump at which, Comey wrote, the president told him: “I need loyalty. I expect loyalty.”

“You will always get honesty from me,” Comey said he replied, later writing, “The demand was like [mobster] Sammy the Bull’s Cosa Nostra induction ceremony.”

What is being overlooked in all of the Liberal Excitement over Comey’s “Blockbuster” new book are the following facts:

Former President Barack Hussein Obama hired him.

Comey is a Professional Bureaucrat. He is a Political Weasel.

Comey followed Robert Mueller as Director of the FBI.

He remained loyal to King Barack The First after President Trump decided to keep him on as FBI Director.

That is why he took notes in meetings with Trump and did not document his meetings with anyone in the Previous Administration, including Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama.

Back on September 20, 2016. Breitbart.com reported the following about Comey…

A review of FBI Director James Comey’s professional history and relationships shows that the Obama cabinet leader — now under fire for his handling of the investigation of Hillary Clinton — is deeply entrenched in the big-money cronyism culture of Washington, D.C. His personal and professional relationships — all undisclosed as he announced the Bureau would not prosecute Clinton — reinforce bipartisan concerns that he may have politicized the criminal probe.

These concerns focus on millions of dollars that Comey accepted from a Clinton Foundation defense contractor, Comey’s former membership on a Clinton Foundation corporate partner’s board, and his surprising financial relationship with his brother Peter Comey, who works at the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes.

Lockheed Martin

When President Obama nominated Comey to become FBI director in 2013, Comey promised the United States Senate that he would recuse himself on all cases involving former employers.

But Comey earned $6 million in one year alone from Lockheed Martin. Lockheed Martin became a Clinton Foundation donor that very year.

Comey served as deputy attorney general under John Ashcroft for two years of the Bush administration. When he left the Bush administration, he went directly to Lockheed Martin and became vice president, acting as a general counsel. 

How much money did James Comey make from Lockheed Martin in his last year with the company, which he left in 2010? More than $6 million in compensation.

Lockheed Martin is a Clinton Foundation donor. The company admitted to becoming a Clinton Global Initiative member in 2010.

According to records, Lockheed Martin is also a member of the American Chamber of Commerce in Egypt, which paid Bill Clinton $250,000 to deliver a speech in 2010.

In 2010, Lockheed Martin won 17 approvals for private contracts from the Hillary Clinton State Department.

HSBC Holdings

In 2013, Comey became a board member, a director, and a Financial System Vulnerabilities Committee member of the London bank HSBC Holdings.

“Mr. Comey’s appointment will be for an initial three-year term which, subject to re-election by shareholders, will expire at the conclusion of the 2016 Annual General Meeting,” according to HSBC company records.

HSBC Holdings and its various philanthropic branches routinely partner with the Clinton Foundation. For instance, HSBC Holdings has partnered with Deutsche Bank through the Clinton Foundation to “retrofit 1,500 to 2,500 housing units, primarily in the low- to moderate-income sector” in “New York City.”

“Retrofitting” refers to a Green initiative to conserve energy in commercial housing units. Clinton Foundation records show that the Foundation projected “$1 billion in financing” for this Green initiative to conserve people’s energy in low-income housing units.

The raw, unmitigated corruption involving Hillary Clinton and her Foundation is breath-taking in its size and scope and should have been targeted a long time ago by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

But, Comey’s corruption did not end there.

Please allow me to review…

Former President Barack Hussein Obama and members of his Administration, including Former FBI Director James Comey, weaponized the FBI and DOJ for the purposes of not only spying on , but also sabotaging the Candidacy and Presidency of Donald J. Trump.

These Deep State Operatives, loyal to the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party, protected both President Barack Hussein Obama and Former Candidate Hillary Clinton, while using both the Bureaucratic and Electronic Tools at their disposal to somehow attempt to keep Trump from Becoming President.

Having failed at that, they invented the fictitious Russian Collusion Narrative as both a distraction and an impediment, in order to prevent President Trump from fulfilling his Campaign Promise to “Make America Great Again”.

This “Secret Society” within the FBI, ensconced in their Swamp of Bureaucracy, considered themselves, as most of the Liberal Elite do, to be smarter than everybody else, “untouchable”, and, evidently, above the laws of the nation which they had sworn to uphold and its citizens whom they had sworn to serve.

So, is it very apparent that Comey has been a duplicitous, corrupt Political Weasel for a very long time.

…including the time he spent working for President Donald J. Trump.

So, for him to write a book targeting the 45th President, while he remained oblivious to all of the corruption surrounding himself and all of his cronies in the Deep State Bowels of Washington, D.C. is the height of hypocrisy….a condition that seems to run rampant among Washington Bureaucrats.

If Former FBI Director Comey wants a more ethical Leadership in Washington, I would suggest that he begin with the man in the mirror…if President Trump had not fired him already and taken care of that particular problem.

Until He Comes,

Nunes: FBI “Violated Criminal Statutes” By Using Steele Dossier. Is IG Horowitz “Deep State”, Too?

March 2, 2018

untitled-188

FoxNews.com reports that

The FBI may have violated criminal statutes, as well as its own strict internal procedures, by using unverified information during the 2016 election to obtain a surveillance warrant on onetime Trump campaign aide Carter Page, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee charged Thursday in a letter obtained by Fox News.

House Intelligence Committee (HPSCI) Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., wrote in his letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions that “in this instance, it’s clear that basic operating guidance was violated.”

Nunes cited the Domestic Investigations and Operations Guide (DIOG), which was created by the bureau and approved by the Justice Department, to say he believed the FBI violated procedures requiring verified and documented evidence in applications to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.

An Oct. 2011 version of the operations guide states that the “accuracy of information contained within FISA applications is of utmost importance… Only documented and verified information may be used to support FBI applications to the court.”

The guidance also states that information in a FISA application must be “thoroughly vetted and confirmed.”

A memo released by the intelligence committee last month stated that the FBI and DOJ sought surveillance warrants to spy on Page by using an infamous, Democrat-funded anti-Trump dossier that included salacious and unverified allegations about Trump’s connections to Russia.

“Former and current DOJ and FBI leadership have confirmed to the committee that unverified information from the Steele dossier comprised an essential part of the FISA applications related to Carter Page,” Nunes wrote Thursday.

“Former and current DOJ and FBI leadership have confirmed to the committee that unverified information from the Steele dossier comprised an essential part of the FISA applications related to Carter Page,” Nunes wrote Thursday.

Nunes listed five criminal statutes that were possibly violated, including conspiracy, obstruction of justice, contempt of court. It also cites statues that make it a crime to willfully deprive a person of a right protected by the Constitution and another preventing unauthorized electronic surveillance.

In the letter, Nunes asks Sessions whether these protocols requiring verified information have changed, and if not, what steps the DOJ or FBI taken to hold officials behind the Page application accountable.

The letter is carbon copied to FBI Director Christopher Wray and DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz.

And, there’s the rub.

Sessions has now confirmed that he has IG Horowitz investigating the surveillance of Page.

And, President Trump is not happy about it.

He believes Horowitz to be an “Obama Guy”.

Is the President right?

Let’s look at the IG’s history.

  • He received his Juris Doctor from Harvard, where he was taught by the likes of upstanding individuals like Barney Franks.
  • Horowitz worked in DOJ from 1991 to 2002. In the early 1990s, he worked for former fired FBI Director Comey while the two of them were in the Southern District of New York.
  • He worked from 2002 to 2012 as a partner at Cadwalader, Wickersham, & Taft LLP, where he specialized in on white-collar defense, internal investigations, and regulatory compliance.
  • Horowitz was nominated by President Obama in July 2011 to be Inspector General of the DOJ.
  • He has been Inspector General since starting in 2012 under the Obama Administration.

To this day, there is no evidence that he ordered any sort of inspection into AG Lynch’s meeting with Former President Bill Clinton on a tarmac in 2016 and then a week later when Hillary Clinton was given a pass by crooked FBI Director Comey.

In fact, we don’t know that the IG looked into any number of Obama era crimes and corrupt actions.

It appears that as far as he and his boss, President Barack Hussein Obama were concerned, Obama did indeed have a “Scandal-Free Administration”

However, we know that was not the case.

So, AG Sessions has turned over the investigation of possible criminal activities by the Federal Bureau of Investigation to someone who used to work with Former FBI Director and Bureaucratic Weasel, James Comey.

Wouldn’t this be grounds for the IG to recuse himself from the investigation in the same manner that AG Sessions recused himself?

Just how well-connected within the Bureaucratic Deep State is IG Horowitz?

Meanwhile, Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his cadre of Liberal Democratic Donors continue to undermine Trump through the continuance of their Dog and Pony Show, which they euphemistically call “an investigation”.

The rumor going around now is that they are about to indict some more Russians .

I suppose that they are attempting to show that they are actually doing something through the indictment of individuals who will never set foot in this country again.

But, I digress…

The more that Mueller and his SS Troops insist that they are non-biased, the more information comes forth that they have been and still are holdovers from the Clinton Administration, working as Deep State Operatives to do unto Trump as Brutus did unto Caesar.

They are proving themselves to be nothing but Trump Haters with no actual evidence of any kind that President Trump “colluded” with the Russians.

Being an Obama “Holdover” himself, I wonder how well IG Horowitz knows Mueller and his “Investigators”?

The only way for a happy ending to this real life spy novel is for the 45th President of the United States to fulfill another one of his campaign Promises and “Drain the Swamp”, i.e., the Justice Department and all of the “alphabet agencies” of disloyal embedded operatives left behind by previous Administrations, including Mueller and his “SS Troops”.

And, if HIS true colors reveal themselves as Former FBI Director James Comey’s did, Inspector General Michael Horowitz should be shown the door, as well.

Until He Comes,

KJ

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Susan Rice E-mail Proves Obama’s Involvement With DOJ/FBI During “CollusionGate”

February 13, 2018

untitled (220).png

“This story is not Trump and the Russians.  I’m sorry to be so repetitive.  The story is the surveillance that the Obama administration was engaging in of Trump and who knows who else.  Now, you say, “Rush, this is awfully hard to believe.”  No, it isn’t.  This is my point about liberals and who they are.  They weaponized the IRS against conservatives, didn’t they?  They most certainly did.

They have done any number of things, take over police departments on the basis that they’re racist after things like what happened in Ferguson or in Baltimore.  The idea that people who are closely associated with Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn would not surveil their enemies. It’s much easier to believe that it would happen.  This is why liberals want power.  This is the kind of thing they want to be able to do with it. ” – Rush Limbaugh April 3, 2017 

As these past several months have shown, the Maha Rushie was right…again.

FoxNews.com reports that

Ex-national security adviser Susan Rice sent an “unusual email” to herself the day President Trump was sworn into office documenting former President Barack Obama’s guidance at a high-level meeting about how law enforcement should investigate Russian interference in the 2016 presidential race, two Republican senators said Monday. 

According to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Sen. Lindsey Graham, the partially unclassified email was sent by Rice on Jan. 20, 2017 — and appears to document a Jan. 5 meeting that included Obama, then-FBI Director James Comey, then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, then-Vice President Joe Biden and Rice. 

In the email, Obama’s national security adviser wrote: “President Obama began the conversation by stressing his continued commitment to ensuring that every aspect of this issue is handled by the Intelligence and law enforcement communities ‘by the book.’ The president stressed that he is not asking about, initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective. He reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book.” 

The email also appears to reflect Obama’s guidance on sharing sensitive information with both the Russians and the incoming administration. 

Rice wrote that Obama said “he wants to be sure that, as we engage with the incoming team, we are mindful to ascertain if there is any reason that we cannot share information fully as it relates to Russia.”

She added, “The President asked Comey to inform him if anything changes in the next few weeks that should affect how we share classified information with the incoming team.  Comey said he would.”

Grassley, R-Iowa, and Graham, R-S.C., released the email Monday. They said they uncovered it as part of their oversight of the FBI and the Department of Justice, and claimed it raises new questions. 

“It strikes us as odd that, among your activities in the final moments on the final day of the Obama administration, you would feel the need to send yourself such an unusual email purporting to document a conversation involving President Obama and his interactions with the FBI regarding the Trump/Russia investigation,” they wrote in a letter to Rice. 

They added: “In addition, despite your claim that President Obama repeatedly told Mr. Comey to proceed ‘by the book,’ substantial questions have arisen about whether officials at the FBI, as well as at the Justice Department and the State Department, actually did proceed ‘by the book.’” 

For those of you who have forgotten exactly who Dr. Susan Rice is, here are some highlights of her curriculum vitae, courtesy of discoverthenetworks.org

  • Foreign-policy aide to Democratic presidential candidate Michael Dukakis in 1988

  • Served on the National Security Council for the Clinton administration

  • Former senior fellow at the Brookings Institution

  • Foreign-policy advisor to Democratic candidate John Kerry during the 2004 presidential campaign

  • Was nominated in 2008 by President-elect Barack Obama to serve as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations

  • Infamously claimed, falsely, that the deadly 9/11/12 terrorist attack against an American diplomatic mission in Benghazi was not a premeditated assault, but rather a “spontaneous reaction” to “a hateful and offensive video that was widely disseminated throughout the Arab and Muslim world”

  • Was appointed as President Obama’s top national security adviser in 2013

For any American who has been paying attention, the revelation of Obama’s use of the FBI and the Department of Justice in the surveillance and attempted sabotaging of Trump and his Campaign Staff is not shocking at all.

It is simply a continuation of a pattern of behavior associated with the political ideology of the Former President and his Administration.

When Barack Hussein Obama assumed the position of President of the United States, the Far Left became empowered. Obama’s handlers saw the opportunity to “radically change” America into a Democratic Socialist Republic. You know, the kind of government that is currently failing over in Europe.

Every piece of legislation that Barack Hussein Obama tried to get passed, was designed to either overtly or covertly limit our freedom.

Boys and Girls, it was not just “Chicago-style Politics” that motivated Obama to spy on the Trump Campaign and to attempt to influence the 2016 Presidential Election. It was his predilection toward Government-sponsored FASCISM.

My late father was one of thousands of brave young American men, who landed on the beaches of Normandy , France on June 6, 1944, in the military operation which broke the backs of the Nazis, leading to the end of World War II, now known as D-Day.

World War II was a war against Fascism.

What is Fascism? Per merriam-webster.com, it is a

political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.

Ladies and gentlemen, I firmly believe that America has been fighting a new War Against Fascism for some time now.

It has not been a war fought with guns and bullets, But instead with State Referendums, Congressional votes, Executive Orders, Law Suits, Judicial Activism and Royal Edicts from the Far Left and their leaders like the Former King Barack The First.

It’s not our Brightest and Best who were wounded on this field of battle, but rather, it was our Constitutional Freedoms which were attacked, pierced by the arrows of Socialism, Political Correctness, and an inexcusable abuse of Executive Power in Washington, DC.

By now, there is someone out there among you saying, “Oh Lord, the crazy old cracka’s overreacting again.”

No, Skippy, I’m not.

If you try to talk to a Liberal about this New Fascism, they will deny that there is any Fascism going on at all. In fact, they will tell you that all this garbage that happened during the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama was “the will of the people”. In order to prove their claim, they will site Democratically stacked push polls from those years or place Hollywood Liberals in front of a camera, so they can mindlessly pontificate and tell us “common folk” that we should  “resist” against a Constitutionally elected President of the United States of America.

If there is “no Fascism”, what do you call Obama’s suggestions and actions to suppress the First Amendment Rights to Free Speech of  Americans, who disagreed with the Liberal “Politically Correct” Point of View, up to and including the surveillance of, interference with, and subsequent purposeful “unmasking ” of the Trump Campaign Staff and the use of the DOJ and the FBI as Political Weapons against an American Citizen?

Fascism, in any form, remains indefensible.

Until He Comes,

Comey Calls for “More Ethical Leadership” in 2018. Why Irony is Embarrassed.

January 2, 2018

09e2efc72fcda45fa571f59a35f038e1

James Comey leaked CLASSIFIED INFORMATION to the media. That is so illegal! – President Donald J. Trump, July 10, 2017, Twitter

FoxNews.com reports that

Former FBI Director James Comey caused a stir on social media by calling for “more ethical leadership” in 2018, even as his time at the helm of the bureau has come under intense scrutiny over the last year.

“Here’s hoping 2018 brings more ethical leadership, focused on the truth and lasting values,” Comey wrote in an apparent swipe at President Trump, who fired him last year. “Happy New Year, everybody.”

Comey’s tweet had more than 30,000 retweets on Monday morning – and thousands of responses accusing him of lacking self-awareness amid the firestorm surrounding the bureau he once led.
“Here is hoping 2018 the U.S. will have a clean, politically, FBI…that will actually do their jobs,” one user, David Weissman, remarked.

Another replied: “Lordy, how could you type that with a straight face?”

(During a congressional hearing last year, Comey memorably said “Lordy, I hope there are tapes” after the president suggested it was possible he had recorded their conversations.)

The Department of Justice’s Inspector General is conducting a review of the bureau’s investigation — under Comey’s watch — into former Secretary of State’s Hillary Clinton email servers.

Over the last year, it was revealed Comey began drafting his July 2016 exoneration statement before key witnesses in the Clinton email investigation had been interviewed.

The inspector general review also is looking into whether FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe – whose wife has strong ties to the Democratic Party – should not have been involved in the investigation.

Other top FBI officials, who worked under Comey and were involved in the Russia investigation, have also come under scrutiny for anti-Trump messages.

Lawmakers have been alarmed by recently revealed texts from FBI official Peter Strzok, who called Trump an “idiot” and who referenced an “insurance policy” against a Trump presidency.

Strzok had been assigned to Robert Mueller’s special counsel probe, but has since been reassigned.

Trump’s attorneys have also pounced on Comey for admitting to orchestrating the leaking of his memos about his interactions with the president to the New York Times in the hopes it would lead to a special counsel investigation.

They have every right to pounce on Comey.

Obama hired him.

Comey is a Professional Bureaucrat. He is a Political Weasel.

Comey followed Robert Mueller as Director of the FBI.

He remained loyal to King Barack The First after President Trump decided to keep him on as FBI Director.

That is why he took notes in meetings with Trump and did not document his meetings with anyone in the Previous Administration, including Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama.

Back on September 20, 2016. Breitbart.com reported the following about Comey…

A review of FBI Director James Comey’s professional history and relationships shows that the Obama cabinet leader — now under fire for his handling of the investigation of Hillary Clinton — is deeply entrenched in the big-money cronyism culture of Washington, D.C. His personal and professional relationships — all undisclosed as he announced the Bureau would not prosecute Clinton — reinforce bipartisan concerns that he may have politicized the criminal probe.

These concerns focus on millions of dollars that Comey accepted from a Clinton Foundation defense contractor, Comey’s former membership on a Clinton Foundation corporate partner’s board, and his surprising financial relationship with his brother Peter Comey, who works at the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes.

Lockheed Martin

When President Obama nominated Comey to become FBI director in 2013, Comey promised the United States Senate that he would recuse himself on all cases involving former employers.

But Comey earned $6 million in one year alone from Lockheed Martin. Lockheed Martin became a Clinton Foundation donor that very year.

Comey served as deputy attorney general under John Ashcroft for two years of the Bush administration. When he left the Bush administration, he went directly to Lockheed Martin and became vice president, acting as a general counsel. 

How much money did James Comey make from Lockheed Martin in his last year with the company, which he left in 2010? More than $6 million in compensation.

Lockheed Martin is a Clinton Foundation donor. The company admitted to becoming a Clinton Global Initiative member in 2010.

According to records, Lockheed Martin is also a member of the American Chamber of Commerce in Egypt, which paid Bill Clinton $250,000 to deliver a speech in 2010.

In 2010, Lockheed Martin won 17 approvals for private contracts from the Hillary Clinton State Department.

HSBC Holdings

In 2013, Comey became a board member, a director, and a Financial System Vulnerabilities Committee member of the London bank HSBC Holdings.

“Mr. Comey’s appointment will be for an initial three-year term which, subject to re-election by shareholders, will expire at the conclusion of the 2016 Annual General Meeting,” according to HSBC company records.

HSBC Holdings and its various philanthropic branches routinely partner with the Clinton Foundation. For instance, HSBC Holdings has partnered with Deutsche Bank through the Clinton Foundation to “retrofit 1,500 to 2,500 housing units, primarily in the low- to moderate-income sector” in “New York City.”

“Retrofitting” refers to a Green initiative to conserve energy in commercial housing units. Clinton Foundation records show that the Foundation projected “$1 billion in financing” for this Green initiative to conserve people’s energy in low-income housing units.

The raw, unmitigated corruption involving Hillary Clinton and her Foundation is breath-taking in its size and scope and should have already been targeted by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Is it very apparent that Comey has been a duplicitous Clintonista for a long time.

…even while working for President Donald J. Trump.

So, for him to opine that there needs to be “more ethical leadership” in Washington, D.C. is the height of hypocrisy….a condition that seems to run rampant among Washington Bureaucrats.

If Former Director Comey wants a more ethical Leadership in Washington, I would suggest that he begin with the man in the mirror…if President Trump had not fired him already and taken care of that particular problem.

Until He Comes,

KJ
