REVOLT AT THE FBI: Resignations and Internal Strife Mount After Comey’s Decision Not to Indict Clinton

Director Comey’s decision not to indict Hillary Clinton was probably the worst decision in the history of the FBI. Unlike the NSA and CIA, the FBI was widely viewed as an organization that looked out for American interests first, a very just and noble institution. By ignoring the crimes of Hillary Clinton, Director Comey had ruined the FBIs reputation, which has resulted in a flurry of resignations and an overtly acrimonious relationship between him and his most trusted agents.

The Daily Mail is reporting of ongoing strife within the agency, as well as Comey’s wife being pissed off at him for not indicting Hillary. These reports have been floating around for weeks. The mutiny within the FBI has gotten so bad, it was rumored that if Comey didn’t reopen the investigation after the Weiner emails, other top level agents were going to start holding press conferences to out the fuckery taking place at the agency — led by the now disgraced Comey.

‘The atmosphere at the FBI has been toxic ever since Jim announced last July that he wouldn’t recommend an indictment against Hillary,’ said the source, a close friend who has known Comey for nearly two decades, shares family outings with him, and accompanies him to Catholic mass every week.

‘Some people, including department heads, stopped talking to Jim, and even ignored his greetings when they passed him in the hall,’ said the source. ‘They felt that he betrayed them and brought disgrace on the bureau by letting Hillary off with a slap on the wrist.’

According to the source, Comey fretted over the problem for months and discussed it at great length with his wife, Patrice.

He told his wife that he was depressed by the stack of resignation letters piling up on his desk from disaffected agents. The letters reminded him every day that morale in the FBI had hit rock bottom.

‘He’s been ignoring the resignation letters in the hope that he could find a way of remedying the situation,’ said the source.
‘When new emails that appeared to be related to Hillary’s personal email server turned up in a computer used [her close aide] Huma Abedin and [Abedin’s disgraced husband,] Anthony Weiner, Comey jumped at the excuse to reopen the investigation.

‘The people he trusts the most have been the angriest at him,’ the source continued. ‘And that includes his wife, Pat. She kept urging him to admit that he had been wrong when he refused to press charges against the former secretary of state.

‘He talks about the damage that he’s done to himself and the institution [of the FBI], and how he’s been shunned by the men and women who he admires and work for him. It’s taken a tremendous toll on him.

‘It shattered his ego. He looks like he’s aged 10 years in the past four months.’

But Comey’s decision to reopen the case was more than an effort to heal the wound he inflicted on the FBI.
He was also worried that after the presidential election, Republicans in Congress would mount a probe of how he had granted Hillary political favoritism.

His announcement about the revived investigation, which came just 11 days before the presidential election, was greeted with shock and dismay by Attorney General Loretta Lynch and the prosecutors at the Justice Department.

‘Jim told me that Lynch and Obama are furious with him,’ the source said.

How did we get here? The democrats, helped by the media, appointed a criminal to run for President of the United States. In my opinion, the campaign of 2016 will go down as the most divisive and pivotal campaigns in the history of the United States, which will have massive and far reaching effects on capital markets — which is why I’ve dedicated so much time and energy towards it.

Take the red pill.

    You only dedicated time and energy to this because of its effect on capital markets?

    Damn, you had me fooled.

      If I am being honest here, my principle concern is how the current policy of the US affects the economy and capital markets in the long term. Social issues are somewhat secondary to me, as I am more of a pitched fork guy all the time.

      The policies of globalization is ruining the country and it’s quickening.

    Hilary now calling the FBI’s hand is suicide – she is boxed into a corner. Hilary’s play is to push back on the FBI? This is crazy.

      Comey is now going all in. He has to make sure she is placed under arrest and taken off the ticket before November 8th. If she somehow ended up winning, which would have only happened if the election was rigged anyway, Comey would have to find a new planet to live on.

    The Passion of the Comey

    I understand he just got a warrant but he sent the letter to Congress before he had any real information. In what first world country is it okay for a non-partisan investigation agency to publicize potentially damaging information without evidence and without a warrant 11 days before an election?

    The DOJ phone call that he probably got along with this warrant is “here you go, everything you find shall be sealed until further notice, and you will testify that you did not actually have any information or DOJ authority when you sent Congress the letter.” All in all, he is on tilt, he will be hung out and dried, and this will now be called Comeygate.

    See the Hatch Act – abridged version. The top part is in the beginning.

    5 U.S. Code § 7323 – Political activity authorized; prohibitions

    (a) Subject to the provisions of subsection (b), an employee may take an active part in political management or in political campaigns, except an employee may not—
    (1) use his official authority or influence for the purpose of interfering with or affecting the result of an election;
    (2) knowingly solicit, accept, or receive a political contribution from any person, unless such person is—
    (A) a member of the same Federal labor organization as defined under section 7103(4) of this title or a Federal employee organization which as of the date of enactment of the Hatch Act Reform Amendments of 1993 had a multicandidate political committee (as defined under section 315(a)(4) of the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 (2 U.S.C. 441a(a)(4)));?[1]
    (B) not a subordinate employee; and
    (C) the solicitation is for a contribution to the multicandidate political committee (as defined under section 315(a)(4) of the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 (2 U.S.C. 441a(a)(4)))?
    1
    of such Federal labor organization as defined under section 7103(4) of this title or a Federal employee organization which as of the date of the enactment of the Hatch Act Reform Amendments of 1993 had a multicandidate political committee (as defined under section 315(a)(4) of the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 (2 U.S.C. 441a(a)(4)));?
    1
    or
    (3) run for the nomination or as a candidate for election to a partisan political office; or
    (4) knowingly solicit or discourage the participation in any political activity of any person who—
    (A) has an application for any compensation, grant, contract, ruling, license, permit, or certificate pending before the employing office of such employee; or
    (B) is the subject of or a participant in an ongoing audit, investigation, or enforcement action being carried out by the employing office of such employee.
    (b)
    (1) An employee of the Federal Election Commission (except one appointed by the President, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate), may not request or receive from, or give to, an employee, a Member of Congress, or an officer of a uniformed service a political contribution.
    (2)
    (A) No employee described under subparagraph (B) (except one appointed by the President, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate), may take an active part in political management or political campaigns.
    (B) The provisions of subparagraph (A) shall apply to—
    (i) an employee of—
    (I) the Federal Election Commission or the Election Assistance Commission;
    (II) the Federal Bureau of Investigation;
    (III) the Secret Service;
    (IV) the Central Intelligence Agency;
    (V) the National Security Council;
    (VI) the National Security Agency;
    (VII) the Defense Intelligence Agency;
    (VIII) the Merit Systems Protection Board;
    (IX) the Office of Special Counsel;
    (X) the Office of Criminal Investigation of the Internal Revenue Service;
    (XI) the Office of Investigative Programs of the United States Customs Service;
    (XII) the Office of Law Enforcement of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms;
    (XIII) the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency; or
    (XIV) the Office of the Director of National Intelligence; or

      You got some twisted logic there. First, you don’t really know what he has. He told Congress that if he came across any new information about Hillary’s emails, he would inform them and that is exactly what he did.

      The issue here is a lying and crooked candidate for the presidency who broke many laws.

      If at the end of all this, Hillary does not get in to commit even more heinous crimes against humanity, he done good in my book.

      Learn to say thank you when someone does something nice for you.

        Making America look like a banana republic where investigative agencies ambush candidates before a vote is about to take place is not nice for me or for you. Comey is the same guy who put Martha Stewart in prison for “insider trading”, couldn’t get an iPhone unlocked so went crying to Apple, and sent Congress a letter that may have been a 4th Amendment breach and a violation of the Hatch Act. He is now the most fucked person you know.

    Great reporting as usual. Must take some issue with the idea that the FBI has been thought of as noble in contrast to the men and women of the Foreign Service who work with them daily. Clearly the leftist intelligentsia and its Hollywood arm has done a fabulous job of perpetuating this myth, and it has filtered on down to even astute observers of our culture like you, Dr. Fly.
    The reality that does correspond with your point is this: These executive arms of government, whether charged with local or foreign security tasks, all rot from the head down. When Bill Clinton took office, scads of good people retired early from CIA because they knew his political appointees would trash the place. Such is the present plight of career officers at FBI. Cut from the same pedestrian cloth as the career professionals at our intelligence agencies, they are beholden to the ass kissing pols who operate at the policy making level.
    There is another thing that people at NSA, CIA and FBI have always had in common. It is a uniquely American trait. They do not believe that the law should be a suicide pact. They recognize the limits of what the Republic can tolerate. Although there are fewer of these classic American warriors in play today than there were in the 90’s, we can only hope that what we have seen the last few days is the result of their having had enough.

    Funny, this article in the UK’s equivalent of the National Enquirer says the absolute opposite from renowned American journalist Kurt Eichenwald of Newsweek, who said sources inside the FBI told him they were furious with Comey about Comey politicising the election by release information that may influence the outcome only 10 days beforehand. Quoting Eichenwald, “Every current/former Dept. of Justice official I speak 2, GOP or Dem, says Comey must resign/be fired 4 election interference. All outraged.”
