Honest federal LE agents disgusted with Comey & DOJ

James Comey, No F B IFor those who listen to the radio show or read the blog, this is not news. I said back in July that, due to the contacts I still have, the line-level agents in the FBI were extremely displeased by the selling of James Comey’s soul in terms of the Hillary Clinton email investigation. The show was rigged from the beginning, including HRC’s failure to be recorded during the interview, the fact that she was not placed under oath, and the fact that agents on the investigation had to sign non-disclosure statements — an unprecedented move in similar cases or circumstances.

I wrote about Comey’s verbal game-playing here:

But the most insightful part has arrived.  Comey outs himself:

Chaffetz then asked whether it was that he was just not able to prosecute it or that Clinton broke the law.

“Well, I don’t want to give an overly lawyerly answer,” Comey said. “The question I always look at is there evidence that would establish beyond a reasonable doubt that somebody engaged in conduct that violated a criminal statute, and my judgment here is there is not. “

And this is how James Comey attempts to rationalize his decision.  He states he does not believe his case established guilt “beyond a reasonable doubt.”

NEWSFLASH: It is not UP to YOU, Director Comey, to assemble a case that yields a determination of “beyond a reasonable doubt.”  That threshold is up to the DOJ or more pointedly a Grand Jury, not you or your organization.  All you need to compile a case for submission is “probable cause.”  That’s what real cops and real DAs in America do.  Their jobs.  They stay in their lanes and do their jobs.

From FoxNews.com:

FBI, DOJ roiled by Comey, Lynch decision to let Clinton slide by on emails, says insider

by Malia Zimmerman and Adam Housley

The decision to let Hillary Clinton off the hook for mishandling classified information has roiled the FBI and Department of Justice, with one person closely involved in the year-long probe telling FoxNews.com that career agents and attorneys on the case unanimously believed the Democratic presidential nominee should have been charged.

The source, who spoke to FoxNews.com on the condition of anonymity, said FBI Director James Comey’s dramatic July 5 announcement that he would not recommend to the Attorney General’s office that the former secretary of state be charged left members of the investigative team dismayed and disgusted. More than 100 FBI agents and analysts worked around the clock with six attorneys from the DOJ’s National Security Division, Counter Espionage Section, to investigate the case.

“No trial level attorney agreed, no agent working the case agreed, with the decision not to prosecute — it was a top-down decision,” said the source, whose identity and role in the case has been verified by FoxNews.com.

Read that again: “No trial level attorney, no agent working the case agree, with the decision not to prosecute — it was a top-down decision.”

hillary-clinton-and-fbiPrecisely. That decision came directly from the Oval Office via a telephone call to Loretta Lynch and then a call to Director James Comey. It all dovetails and ties up neatly. I wrote about “connecting the dots” of corruption in the Obama administration here. Please take time to read the article — it explains most everything you’ve seen and heard.

“Mills was allowed to sit in on the interview of Clinton as her lawyer. That’s absurd. Someone who is supposedly cooperating against the target of an investigation [being] permitted to sit by the target as counsel violates any semblance of ethical responsibility,” the source said.

“Every agent and attorney I have spoken to is embarrassed and has lost total respect for James Comey and Loretta Lynch,” the source said. “The bar for DOJ is whether the evidence supports a case for charges — it did here. It should have been taken to the grand jury.”

Also infuriating agents, the New York Post reported, was the fact that Clinton’s interview spanned just 3½ hours with no follow-up questioning, despite her “40 bouts of amnesia,” and then, three days later, Comey cleared her of criminal wrongdoing.

Many FBI and DOJ staffers believe Comey and Lynch were motivated by ambition, and not justice, the source said.

hillary-clinton-health-problem-reasoningBut wait; this next paragraph is grand.

“Loretta Lynch simply wants to stay on as Attorney General under Clinton, so there is no way she would indict,” the source said. “James Comey thought his position [excoriating Clinton even as he let her off the hook] gave himself cover to remain on as director regardless of who wins.”

Then, this week from Wikileaks:

Adding to the controversy, WikiLeaks released internal Clinton communication records this week that show the Department of Justice kept Clinton’s campaign and her staff informed about the progress of its investigation.

Read that again: “the Department of Justice kept Clinton’s campaign and her staff informed about the progress of its investigation.”

us-doj-corrupt-smaller-aAstounding. The bare, naked corruption. And the American Media Maggots sit idly by and do nothing.

There you have it. Thank you Zimmerman and Housley. And that’s how massively corrupt our federal law enforcement system truly is.

Under Hillary Clinton this trend will simply continue and grow larger.

  1. I am a retired police officer, and a lawyer. I even interned at the State Attorney’s Office (SAO). So I can look at this thing from the perspective as both a law enforcement officer, and a lawyer.

    The job of the cop is to submit to the SAO, any case he believes that “probable cause” exists that the person charged committed a crime (Probable cause…NOT Beyond a Reasonable Doubt. Probable cause is defined as reasonably believes a crime was committed and the person arrested committed that crime). The cop puts together a Probable Cause (PC) Affidavit outlining the facts of the case and how they apply to the elements of the crime and submits it to the SAO for a determination. That is ALL that law enforcement is supposed to do. As long as the cop had probable cause to believe a crime was committed, he files it with the SAO. i can tell you that I have had lots of cases as a cop where sometimes I was not 100% confident that a crime was committed or that my arrestee did it, but we were told that it is NOT our decision to make as law enforcement. That this determination was left up to the courts. Law enforcement submits its PC affidavit and leaves the next step to the SAO, and they are the ones that choose to go for a conviction or null file the case. We did this for the exact reason here. So that no one could come back and say that our agency was not doing its job. Our job was not to make the final determination of guilt or innocence.

    The burden of “beyond a reasonable doubt” is that of the SAO…NOT the law enforcement agency. But I can only guess that it was easier for hiLIARy to blackmail or buy off comey than it would have been had this issue been placed in the hands of the prosecutors and the courts.

    For those of us who know how the system is supposed to work, we know full well, and without any doubt, this was a scam and a coverup of the highest degree. In a real world…and honest world, hiLIARy would have been charged with her crimes, and would face our judicial system in order to be determined innocent or guilty. This was NOT the job of the FBI, and it certainly was NOT the job of comey to determine she was innocent and deny the courts their duty.

    And yet, was saddens me even more than our crooked FBI agency and agent comey, is that hiLIARy is still a strong contender for president. That at least 47% of Americans will still vote for her.

    We can survive a bad presidency. What we cannot survive is a majority of people who are willing to continue electing bad presidents over and over again.

    • Yes. That’s precisely as I laid things out. It’s not Comey’s job. It’s the job of the DOJ and/or GJ. His threshold isn’t that AND he LIED about his threshold.

  2. Comey has lied, period.
    Only an Obama supporter can survive this.
    The only present way to clean up the corruption in our Govt. is to
    elect Donald Trump.
    He is not scared to fire employees.
    Elect Trump and sit back and watch the fur fly!
