I’m in the process of reading the actual OIG report, and I’ve come to the conclusion that every American needs to actually read this rather than rely on the MSM talking heads to “describe” it to you. They’re so indicted in this themselves that there is definitely collusion between some of them and the FBI at minimum. So, read this for yourselves...the link is public on my page. Until that time, I shall summarize what I have thus far that I feel everyone should hear straightaway. I put page numbers for some that I feel many of you will wish to look up for yourselves, but rest assured this is ALL from the official OIG report...not a regurgitation of a news source (from left or right).
By page 366 of the OIG report it became pretty clear that our justice departments (yes plural) truly are not doing their jobs properly. It's also clear that they gave preferential treatment to the media outside the bounds of their stated policies (and there are several charts showing the contacts outside the bounds of policy). It's also crystal clear that they assumed Clinton would win the election. They often speak of not wanting to "delegitimize" her presidency, but they seem more concerned with a fear that heads will roll if they bring up certain facts to an investigation OR if it gets out to the public. There are texts calling her “the president” and other phrases that seem as if they are so assured Clinton would win that they were viewing this as not only a certainty but viewing their own futures through that lens.
I decided to drop down to Chapter 12 on text messages and the like. I was disgusted by what I saw coming from the FBI in how unprofessional it was to be sure, but also how horribly they spoke of the American people in general. Most of them were clearly those of Page and Strzok although they’re titled “Agent 5” or “Attorney 1” or other identifier. Yet, the dripping disdain for anyone who is “not of their tribe” is vastly telling. Apparently the IG thought so also, because he wrote this about Strzok:
(pg 420) “We were deeply troubled by text messages sent by Strzok and Page that potentially indicated or created the appearance that investigative decisions were impacted by bias or improper considerations. Most of the text messages raising such questions pertained to the Russia investigation, which was not a part of this review. Nonetheless, when one senior FBI official, Strzok, who was helping to lead the Russia investigation at the time, conveys in a text message to another senior FBI official, Page, that “we’ll stop” candidate Trump from being elected—after other extensive text messages between the two disparaging candidate Trump—it is not only indicative of a biased state of mind but, even more seriously, implies a (continued on page 421) willingness to take official action to impact the presidential candidate’s electoral prospects. This is antithetical to the core values of the FBI and the Department of Justice. Moreover, as we describe in Chapter Nine, in assessing Strzok’s decision to prioritize the Russia investigation over following up on the Midyear-related investigative lead discovered on the Weiner laptop in October 2016, these text messages led us to conclude that we did not have confidence that Strzok’s decision was free from bias.”
When you read how they attempt to “explain” their messages, you have to read that bit very slowly and probably aloud because they just don’t speak understandably. It’s clear they’re searching for words and phrasing to avoid getting in trouble, but much of it makes little sense overall. It reminds me of a child when they’re lying about who got mud on the living room carpet and they’re trying to blame the dog. I remain convinced that Strzok was “up to a nefarious act” and that he’d convinced Page that his actions would ensure a Clinton win. What he did, however, remains a mystery other than he prioritized the Russia mess (which has been now proven a false flag) over the email scandal.
While that has little to do with Comey, and Strzok is but one player, when you take into account all the “outside the rules” things the agents were doing with the media and how they very carefully use linguistic gymnastics to “not say” something or they use “um” so often, you have to conclude they were operating outside the parameters of the FBI stated protocol. SO….if they’re willing to do this in a presidential election, I ask you……What would they do to the least of us….especially as disparagingly as they talk about anyone who is “not their circle” whom they view as degenerate?
This must stop, but I no longer trust or approve of the FBI. At one point someone I assume is Strzok says in a text that he has started the downfall of the Republic then asks the recipient (assumed to be Page) out for coffee. He plays so loosely with our law that he cares little if he DOES bring down the Republic. He clearly feels he’ll come out on top either way. The FBI lost me entirely and I hope they get their comeuppance over this. They need taken to task, but since they are pretty much above the law and they clearly know that, I don’t hold out hope that it will happen.
I shall read the rest at a later date, but you need to read this yourselves. It truly is damning to THEM, unquestionably.
