Imaginary FBI Employees Have Anger, Worry, And Fears Of Lasting Damage

The Washington Post’s Matt Zapotosky and Devlin Barrett have written another fantasy story, chock full of anonymous sources and unnamed people, which is leading the Sunday edition on both the web and dead tree versions on the top of the front page

Inside the FBI: Anger, worry, work — and fears of lasting damage

In the 109 years of the FBI’s existence, it has repeatedly come under fire for abuses of power, privacy or civil rights. From Red Scares to recording and threatening to expose the private conduct of Martin Luther King benefiting from bulk surveillance in the digital age, the FBI is accustomed to intense criticism.

What is so unusual about the current moment, say current and former law enforcement officials, is the source of the attacks.

The bureau is under fire not from those on the left but rather conservatives who have long been the agency’s biggest supporters, as well as the president who handpicked the FBI’s leader.

Republican critics charge that the birth of the investigation into possible coordination between the Trump campaign and agents of the Russian government was fatally infected by the political bias of senior FBI officials — and President Trump tweeted Saturday that the release of a memo on the issue “totally vindicates ‘Trump.’ ”

Bureau officials say the accusations in the document produced by House Republicans are inaccurate and — more damaging in the long term — corrode the agency’s ability to remain independent and do its job.

One law enforcement official summed it up bluntly: “There’s a lot of anger. The irony is it’s a conservative-leaning organization, and it’s being trashed by conservatives. At first it was just perplexing. Now there’s anger, because it’s not going away.”

It continues on in this manner, only quoting big shots like Christopher Wray and James Comey, and not in direct relation to the article.

If there’s any anger in the FBI, it’s surely by career FBI agents who know that the people Republicans and President Trump are referring to are those who have damaged the FBI’s reputation. Those upper level employees who turned the FBI into a political arm of Team Obama and Team Hillary. You’d be angry too if your fellow employees were doing things that made your company look really, really bad. That made it hard for people to trust. Especially in light of the knowledge that several other federal agencies, notably the IRS and DOJ had also been weaponized to go after the political enemies of the President while protecting the allies of the President.

FBI employees know that justice should be blind. That there should be no partisan politics involved in uphold The Law. And know that the opposite happened in their agency. And they surely fear the results of this, that happened under the watch of Barack Obama.

The public attacks from the president have diminished morale inside the FBI, according to current and former officials. Among themselves, senior officials and rank and file frequently debate the best way forward. Several law enforcement officials said they agreed with Wray’s low-key approach, as a means of what one called “getting back to Mueller’s FBI.”

Again, assuming these people are real, those who are just doing their job as it is meant to be done know the attacks aren’t on them, and surely prefer that those issues be resolved. They know the attacks have merit, but do not involve them.

Oh, and BTW, considering that Leftists like those at the Washington Post are constantly attacking American citizens and companies, often for just being rich, they should shut the hell up about attacks on people in a federal agency which weaponized itself as a political attack dog.

    “weaponized”… LOL

    Are you a believer that the Feds stop all legal (according to the courts) investigations related to tRump?

    The Russians have weaponized media to bend American elections in their favor, apparently with the full support of the tRump administration and the GOP. Russian internet bots have been forwarding and retwittering the “Release The Memo” memes in record numbers. Why do you suppose they do that?

    It’s no surprise that the Russians fully support and assist the administration’s assaults on the American institutions that defend us from foreign attack.

      A few grand in Facebook ads, versus millions in domestic programming on all but one of the broadcast and cable news networks?

        You are comparing a free and open American press with subterfuge by a foreign adversary. The Russians hacked into the DNC then released the emails for maximum political effect, a criminal act and an attack on U.S. sovereignty. In addition, most of their involvement on social media has been free of charge thanks to Facebook and Twitter.

        The Russians have been engaging in a pattern cyberwarfare against countries other countries, including attacks on fragile emerging democracies in eastern Europe. They have a found a weakness in modern democratic institutions, and are exploiting it for political advantage. Play along with them at your own peril.

        • drowningpuppies says:

          As proven before by the metadata, the so-called “hack” of the DNC server was actually a download by someone on the inside.

          Stop lying, kiddiez.

    You are all Comrades, now!

    #Америка сдалась России!

  3. Jeffery says:

    Yikes… Retiring Trey Gowdy disses tRump and his boy, Nunes.

  4. whoopie says:

    If there are any career FBI agents leaving, I suspect they’re the ones who think it’s their duty to decide who’ll be president. In that case, good riddance!

  5. drowningpuppies says:

    The most unforgivable idiocy of the FBI Director, his deputies, and the Attorney General is this:

    They struck at the king and missed.

    Now it is time for vengeance.

    For those who wish to be informed.

  6. Jeffery says:

    This must not have been reported on FOX…

    Brennan asked Gowdy to respond to President Trump’s claim Saturday that the memo “totally vindicates” him in the Russia investigation.

    “I was pretty integrally involved in the drafting of [the memo],” Gowdy said, “There is a Russia investigation without a dossier. So to the extent the memo deals with the dossier and the FISA process, the dossier has nothing to do with the meeting at Trump Tower. The dossier has nothing to do with an email sent by Cambridge Analytica. The dossier really has nothing to do with George Papadopoulos’ meeting in Great Britain.”

    • drowningpuppies says:

      So where does Gowdy diss Trump or Nunes, little dipshit?

      • david7134 says:

        Actually there should be a Russian investigation. Only now it is evident that Hillary was the one colluding. She needs to go to jail.

  7. ccoffer says:

    Since Russia and Bill Clinton’s “wife” both think the wrong side won the Cold War, only a retarded asshole would suggest Russians plotted to sabotage her election. Leftists are human garbage.

    • Jeffery says:

      The Russians acted to help tRump and to sabotage Secretary Clinton. Anyone denying these facts is not interested in serious discussion.

      • ccoffer says:

        You’re a liar. Get used to losing. You deserve much worse. You vermin are the absolute scum of the earth. Hell awaits you, you greasy, treasonous, America-hating maggot.

        Thank God that openly corrupt. Stalinist invalid didn’t get away with what she tried to do to America.

      • drowningpuppies says:

        Why is it that little guy and other liberals have a serious problem with that word, fact?

      • david7134 says:

        Prove it.

        But you can’t because all you do is lie.

        • Jeffery says:

          Prove what is already known – that the Russians helped tRump win? That’s not even debated. The question is whether the tRump campaign conspired with the Russians. And money laundering, obstruction of justice etc.

          We understand your anger and insecurity… it’s not looking good for tRump’s associates… and it’s extremely frustrating to the inherent totalitarianism of the Nu Cons that your god-king can’t just command that it go away. You think since tRump was elected by only a few million fewer votes than his opponent, that he should be above the law.

  8. Derek says:

    What no one is seeing in all of this yet is that Comey and Mueller are Bush Cronies. That the initial dossier was put together for Jeb Bush and when his campaign went under the Clintons took over it.

    Anyone care to wonder why the Globalist Bush family wanted to crush Trump after they called one of their own names? The globalist Bush’s and every other rich family on the planet all want a new world order in which the elites keep on getting rich.

    What no one really sees in all of this is that there is no constitutional crisis. The government classifies everything in order to cover up their own stink and stench.

    The only reason the Democrats wanted this crushed is because they are fearing its going to lead back to Obama. They really could care less about the Clintons anymore.

    Remember this statement:

    “We need to find a way forward to make sure that we can stop terrorists while protecting the privacy, and liberty, of innocent Americans,” then-Sen. Obama said when he voted against Michael Hayden’s confirmation as CIA director in 2006. “As a nation we have to find the right balance between privacy and security, between executive authority to face threats and uncontrolled power. What protects us, and what distinguishes us, are the procedures we put in place to protect that balance, namely judicial warrants and congressional review. … These are concrete safeguards to make sure surveillance hasn’t gone too far.”

    The democrats now:

    “The premise of the Nunes memo is that the FBI and DOJ corruptly sought a FISA warrant on a former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser, Carter Page, and deliberately misled the court as part of a systematic abuse of the FISA process. As the Minority memo makes clear, none of this is true. The FBI had good reason to be concerned about Carter Page and would have been derelict in its responsibility to protect the country had it not sought a FISA warrant.

    Carter Paige had been told by the FBI in 2013 he was under surveillance and that the Russians were trying to recruit him.

    The man is either incredibly stupid to have become a colluder with Russia after the FBI told him these facts and that he was under investigation. However a FISA warrant by the then Obama DOJ to spy on him, a member of the Trump team is Watergate at its fullest and this is simply a means to keep the crap from rolling into Obama’s backyard.

    • Jeffery says:

      tRump and the GOP control the White House (including the FBI and the DOJ), the House, the Senate, and a Con majority in the Supreme Court. tRump brags that he’s appointed more judges than any prez in history. (BTW – The judges who signed all of Carter Page FISA warrants were appointed by Republicans).

      And you still blame President Obama for tRump’s problems?

      We see what’s going on. tRump is trying to influence public opinion into thinking that Obama/Clinton loyalists are trying to “get” him.

      • david7134 says:

        13 of the 14 judges are appointed by Obama. You are very stupid in your lying.

        • Jeffery says:


          You probably didn’t know that Presidents don’t appoint FISA judges – the Chief Justice of the Supreme court does without oversight. We’ve had 3 Chief’s since 1969 (FISA was enacted 1978) – all appointed by Republicans – Warren Burger (69-86; Nixon), Richard Rehnquist (86-05; Reagan), and since 2005 John Roberts (05-present; Bush).

          Obama couldn’t have appointed FISA judges, so you’re mistaken. Perhaps you have residual neurological damage from your sepsis.

        • david7134 says:

          No jeff, I looked up my info again and the judges are Obama goons. By the way, the reason I share medical info was to see how you reacted and you did as expected. You are a true piece of crap and only lie when you claim to care about various people.

          • Jeffery says:

            It’s true that I care less for people like you who seem intent on harming the nation and its people. You, of course, insult me nearly every post, and on balance I probably treat you fairly.

            Can you share your source showing that President Obama appointed 13 FISA judges?

  9. drowningpuppies says:

    “Look at all of these investigations now,” said King. “Look closely for Barack Obama’s fingerprints. I’ve just identified some that I think are fingerprints, and I think this trail leads to the Obama presidency, to Barack Obama himself, but it’s going to take some time if we get there, and I’m not certain that the evidence trail necessarily leads there. There’s an indication trail that says we need to take a look and find out. But if it’s not Barack Obama, then who is it? Well, it’s Loretta Lynch, for example, and James Comey, and McCabe, and that cast of characters from Sally Yates on down. I don’t think we’ve ever seen such a long row of very high-level executive branch officials wrapped up in something here that is political partisanship, weaponizing the FBI and DOJ to do opposition research that was stimulated by the presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and [paid for with her] and the DNC’s checkbooks.”

    Memo Fallout: Nine Questions About James Comey’s Role in Fueling Russia Collusion Conspiracy

    Wonder if the little dumbass has any answers.

  11. Jeffery says:

    Answers: Don’t read not-BrightBart. Don’t listen to Steve King. There.

  12. Jeffery says:

    We understand why you are all so angry. It’s unclear what will happen to tRump in the legal system, so you’d much prefer to halt the process. We don’t blame you for being anxious and lashing out.

  13. Jl says:

    Still waiting for proof of J’s assertions. But of course we’ll never hear of it because there isn’t any. But if he has something maybe he should call Mueller with all the incriminating evidence.

  14. Jeffery says:


    This FBI agent is not imaginary.

    After more than a decade of service, which included investigating terrorism, working to rescue kidnapping victims overseas and being special assistant to the director, I am reluctantly turning in my badge and leaving an organization I love. Why? So I can join the growing chorus of people who believe that the relentless attacks on the bureau undermine not just America’s premier law enforcement agency but also the nation’s security. My resignation is painful, but the alternative of remaining quiet while the bureau is tarnished for political gain is impossible.
