The Rot At The Top of the FBI

It seems the more we come to know about ‘Richard Smoker’ the more repugnant he turns out to be.

Circa remains the organization breaking the trail here:

FBI chief McCabe faces three separate federal inquiries into his behavior

By John Solomon and Sara Carter, Circa

Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, a central player in the Russia election case, is the focus of three separate federal administrative inquiries into allegations about his behavior as a senior bureau executive, according to documents and interviews.

The allegations being reviewed range from sexual discrimination to improper political activity, the documents show.

Specifically:

  1. Sexual Discrimination and Retaliation against a Decorated Agent.
  2. Violation of the Hatch Act while actively campainging on behalf of his wife.
  3. Failure to report Campaign Contributions to his wife on Ethics Filings and Failure to recuse himself in the Hilary Clinton Investigation.

Interesting that a man with such a background would rise to the Number 2 Position at the FBI during the [mal]Administration of the former President, though hardly surprising given the lawless nature of that [mal]Administration.

UPDATE: Heh! I beat ZeroHedge to the story…

When One's Public Reputation is in Tatters...
I'm still glad that Trump is the President.

    The rot permeates the fbi.
    Look at what they said last week – that the liberal nutball Hodgkinson had no particular targets in mind when he opened fire on Republicans.

    Truth be told, after 8 years of Barry Obama, most federal agencies are infected with rot and should be cleaned out or just plain eliminated.

    I hope that the dems keep pushing investigations. All kind of stuff keeps popping out.
    Any political appointee that was in office prior to 20 Jan should be immediately fired.
    Trump should put a list of all judicial nominees on McConnell’s desk and tell him to get to work.

    Hopefully Ginsberg and Stephens will decide to retire this year as well as Kennedy.

    Susan rice is blaming…. (Get this you would have NEVER seen it coming)

    RACISM and SEXISM

    for her problems.

    New York Magazine:

    I ask Rice why she thinks she became a target. She laughs, sort of. “I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about this. What do you think?”

    I mention Benghazi, the moment when much of the right’s base became aware of Rice’s existence. “Does it start there?” she asks. She is not a person given to agitation, but here, Rice’s focus sharpens — she looks at me more directly, with heightened intensity. “And why me? Why not Jay Carney, for example, who was then our press secretary, who stood up more?”

    Carney isn’t an African-American woman, of course. Does Rice credit that for the disproportionate amount of scrutiny she’s gotten? “I don’t know,” she replies. “I’m not being a smartass when I say I’ve given this a lot of thought, and I’m trying to understand it better,” she says. “All that stuff happened while I was a sitting public servant. I perhaps mistakenly assumed that once I was no longer a sitting public servant, and a private citizen minding my own business and trying to go to my daughter’s soccer games with more regularity, that I would not be of interest to these folks. Um … Silly me. So this has prompted me to really try to get underneath that question.”

    She mentions that other women in public life of all races have come in for some pretty rough treatment. Hillary. Condoleezza Rice. The other Rice, says this Rice, “took a lot of stuff. Not, frankly, I don’t think, to the same extent I have, but that was ad hominem.” I point out that she has a reputation for being tough, and a strong-willed woman who seems sure of herself makes a certain kind of man nervous.

    “Let me just put it this way,” she says. “I do not leap to the simple explanation that it’s only about race and gender. I’m trying to keep my theories to myself until I’m ready to come out with them. It’s not because I don’t have any.
    —————
    Gee racism and sexism are the only reasons that she mentions. What else could there be?? Maybe it is because she knows she is guilty.

    When Comey stated the FBI agents are good people that is true. But the leadership of the FBI in D.C. has joined the ranks of the swamp. ww
