It's a real shame what's happened to the FBI.

With FBI looking ever more corrupt, Director Wray should feel the heat.

It's time to fix this shlt...

Major problems at a heavily politicized FBI predated the June 2017 ascension of Christopher Wray to the bureau’s directorship, but Wray has no excuse for failing to fix them in the five years since.

 

If there is truth to even a significant portion of the allegations in a July 25 letter from Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) to Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland, a corrupt subculture continues to exist, without effective rebuke, in some major ranks of the FBI. Grassley wrote that numerous whistleblower reports indicate Timothy Thibault, the assistant special agent in charge of the Washington field office, along with Supervisory Intelligence Analyst Brian Auten, and others, combined to help cover up apparent “derogatory information connected to Hunter Biden,” the now-president’s son.

 

Grassley says Auten and others falsely labeled the Biden material as “disinformation,” presumably of Russian origin, and that Thibault not only ordered inquiries into other derogatory information about the younger Biden closed, quite wrongly, but also “attempted to improperly mark the matter in FBI systems so that it could not be opened in the future.”

Auten already had made significant errors that contributed to the bogus allegations that then-candidate Donald Trump had conspired with Russian agents to help him win the 2016 presidential election. And Grassley in May had accused Thibault, completely apart from the Biden matter, of “likely violations of Federal laws, regulations, and [FBI] guidelines … based on a pattern of active public partisanship in his then-public social media content.” Grassley also said these agents or others deliberately tried to undermine ongoing Senate investigations, led by Grassley, into numerous suspicious activities of Hunter Biden and other Biden family members.

“The FBI inquiry into Hunter Biden reportedly began as a tax investigation,” reported the Washington Examiner’s Jerry Dunleavy, “then expanded into a scrutiny of potential money-laundering and foreign lobbying.” Evidence from the younger Biden’s laptop also suggests he may have broken federal drug laws and human trafficking laws.

Meanwhile, Grassley said “the volume and consistency of these [whistleblower] allegations substantiate their credibility” and that they and other reports indicate that the Justice Department and FBI are “institutionally corrupted to their very core,” with “systemic and existential problems within your agencies.”

What’s worse is that the alleged and apparent impropriety of FBI agents regarding the interconnected Biden-Trump-Russia imbroglios seems to be only one part of the FBI’s malfeasance. Reports emerged in March that a 2019 internal FBI audit found FBI agents broke the rules at least 747 times in just a year and a half in high-profile investigations — and even that audit covered less than half of FBI matters listed as “sensitive” during the relevant time period.

Also in March, Reps. Jamie Raskin (D-MD) and Nancy Mace (R-SC) asked the Governmental Accountability Office to review the FBI’s use of certain surveillance activities because the lawmakers had information suggesting the bureau was involved in “improper monitoring of protected First Amendment activity."

Despite all this evidence of laxity and corruption, there is little attestation that the FBI has taken significant disciplinary steps against any of its errant personnel. When Wray took over the FBI, he had a stellar reputation, but after five years, there is almost no indication that he has righted the bureau’s ship. Grassley has every good reason to suspect that corruption in large parts of the FBI is “systemic and existential.”

The situation at the FBI is unacceptable. Period. If Wray cannot prove by year’s end that he has taken major, effective steps to fix it, he should lose his job.

No, no, no. Just the other day, Mooney assured us this was a right wing conspiracy.  Sorry.

Corrupt police?  Ya Kidding!

:rolleyes:

Police are the boots on the ground, in harms way handling the day to day maintenance of law and order in everyone's neighborhood, town, and cities.  Ensuring no person gets robbed, raped, murdered, assaulted and keeping the peace.  FBI is a federal domestic agency that gathers intelligence and is an arm of the Department of Justice and the Attorney General.  That is today's social studies Ted Talk.  

One is directly tied to big donor government officials, the other is your neighbor, your cousin or kids friends mom or dad.

The FBI today has nothing on itself circa 2000/2001.

That unit discraced a nation, got many souls killed.

And they are all prone to corruption and many guilty of it.  You put someone in this position, human nature says they will take advantage of it.

I'll believe it when the FBI house is cleaned. Until then they will shoo off the corruption accusations like you swat a fly.

It's all a sham, question every bit of it. They don't care, there is nothing they can't get away with. And 'centrists' will defend it.

Even those who favor Trump have and will acknowledge that probably the worst aspect of his administration was its selection of personnel.    Made many, many bad choices with who they put in important positions.     See "Bolton, John" and "Scaramucci, Anthony" as examples. . .

Amazing how many snakes he hired. They obviously said what they had to to get the job. Trump got boxed in with Wray after firing Comey. Should have fired Comey from jump.

Maybe Trump purposely hired stupid people for whatever reason you guys can concoct in your head. 

You've never hired someone who turned out to be a dud?  Oh right, what was I thinking.  🤣  Life losers are never in the position to hire someone. You should ask your boss, he knows what it's like.  🤣

The FBI is mostly made up of college boys that never got their hands dirty. But they don’t question orders. The modern proletarian guard.

Libs think it's some sort of gotcha that the guy who made hundreds of millions of dollars from the phrase "you're fired" doesn't have a perfect hiring record.  🤣
