REPORT: FBI Inspector General Pursuing 27 Leakers, with Major Shakeup on the Way

When I was a kid, the term Federal Bureau of Investigation represented the pinnacle of the American justice system: incorruptible, utterly fair, and ethically... above reproach.

My, how times have changed.

Under the Obama administration, the FBI (and former director Robert Mueller's investigation) appears to have been hopelessly politicized at its uppermost levels. Consider:

A lead FBI investigator -- Peter Strzok -- has been removed from Robert Mueller's special counsel team for texting his mistress a series of various anti-Trump tweets (I'm old enough to remember when having a mistress disqualified you from a TOP SECRET clearance, but -- hey -- I'm an old man). Furthermore, the upper echelons of the FBI have refused requests from Congress to release said texts.

As for Hillary Clinton's illegal email server, the same investigator -- the mercurial mega-scapegoat super-agent is said to have rewritten language to exonerate Clinton rather than criminally charging her.

As for the Mueller "special" impeachment counsel, at least three of the key investigators donated a total of more than $50,000 to Hillary Clinton and other Democrats.

Gee. No conflict there, I guess.

One of Mueller's top investigators, a partisan hack named Andrew Weissmann, actually congratulated then-acting Attorney General Sally Yates for refusing to enforce the President's Travel Ban Executive Order. Because I guess the FBI can overrule the Executive Branch's Chief Executive Officer.

And they say comedy is dead.

Another Mueller "investigator" -- one Jeannie Rhea, if that is her real name -- "was the personal attorney of Ben Rhodes and also represented the Clinton Foundation".

Gee, I'm sure she'll be unbiased.

Fortunately, help may be in the way in the form of an Inspector General. One can dream, can't one?

...Before December, we're going to see other parts of his report coming out after January. And they are looking at Peter Strzok, they are looking at Comey. They are looking at 27 leakers. It would not surprise me if there is a shake-up at the FBI and house cleaning...

...I think that one thing that we are lucky with here is that the layers of this onion have been peeling back. And we have been able to get information slowly but we have been able to get information that is exposing it for what it is. And I think that is the most important thing right now.

As Gregg Jarrett noted, "...[It] is astonishing is that one man with a political agenda exonerated Hillary Clinton and then simultaneously launched the investigation against President Trump."

Astonishing, but not unexpected given the unparalleled corruption and criminality of the most scandalous president in American history* -- one Barack Hussein Soetero Dunham Obama (which is the legal name he prefers, I hear).

*Bar none. Story hat tip: BadBlue Uncensored News.
