Judicial Watch President: "Forget Mueller," The Real Question Is "Do We Need To Shut Down The FBI?"

Echoing the thoughts that are undoubtedly running through the minds of many Americans following startling revelations of an "insurance policy" crafted by FBI agents Andrew McCabe and Peter Strzok to prevent a Trump presidency at all costs (something we covered here: FBI Texts Reveal "Insurance Policy" To Prevent Trump Presidency), Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton appeared on Fox News last night to say it's time to move beyond discussing whether or not it's appropriate to shut down Special Counsel Mueller's investigation and move on to consider whether it's now time to consider shutting down the entire FBI after "it was turned into a KGB-type operation by the Obama administration?"

"Fusion GPS was a Hillary Clinton campaign vendor and the DOJ was working hand and glove with it...perhaps paying them money...the suspicion is they were paying them money...top DOJ official's wife was working with them.  There was no distinction between the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Department of Justice and the FBI."


"Forget about the FBI investigation into Clinton and Trump being compromised by these conflicts.  I think the FBI's been compromised.  Forget about shutting down Mr. Mueller...do we need to shut down the FBI because it was turned into a KGB-type operation by the Obama administration?"

For those who missed it, Representative Trey Gowdy (R-SC) did a masterful job during Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein's hearing yesterday of summarizing all the DOJ/FBI conflicts which prove that Special Counsel Mueller's probe is nothing but a farcical, politically-motivated witch hunt led by Obama/Clinton loyalists.  If you missed this exchange, it's definitely worth a listen...

It won't happen.  For a lot of reasons.  But from a public opinion/psychology perspecting the dumbed-down American public won't believe it.  People can understand a certain level of corruption.  But when you start talking about an institution literally being turned into a MONSTER, they will reject the idea.  They won't believe it.  They won't accept it.  The FBI is the good guy in their minds, there's no way this could be true.You ever watch when the news interviews the parents of a mass murderer?  They can't believe it.  They WON'T believe it.  That their cute little kid who used to play in the back yard turned out to be THAT?  No way.  Their heads just explode.

A cruise missile taking out the 7th floor might help.The grunts six and down are probably praying for that event - such is the burden of shame and ridicule they now bear on a daily basis - gotta be tough for any honourable FBI agent taking orders from these corrupted clowns.

Trey Gowdy and a few others ask GREAT questions!!  Man, they are impressive.  They even display a healthy dose of emotion I read as impatient righteous indignation.  Except NOTHING ever happens. They might as well be asking these questions from the dying cockroach position.All bark, no bite.  100% impotent.Fucking losers and cowards, all of them!

 Within the U.S. Department of Justice, the FBI is responsible to the attorney general, and it reports its findings to U.S. Attorneys across the country. The FBI’s intelligence activities are overseen by the Director of National Intelligence. The attorney general holds the power of attorney in representing a government in all legal matters. The attorney general is nominated by the president and confirmed by the U.S. Senate. There is no designated term for the attorney general; rather the president can remove him or her from the office at any time. The power of the Executive Branch is vested in the President of the United States, who also acts as head of state and Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces. Therefore the FBI is responsible to AG Sessions who is hired by President Trump who is head of the Executive Branch.  So we have two layers of supervision that is allowing the FBI to run ragged.  Why, Sessions recused himself and Trump is the target of an investigation coming from Sessions department?  That puts the FBI and the Special Cousel in the driver’s seat as Congress is inept except for playing with/spending/taking advantage of our tax dollars.

Trump was never supposed to win. All this was just par for the course until the unthinkable happened. Now, their whole party is fucked. This is too much fun to watch. The things that ZH readers have known for years and years are being exposed to the sheep. God I really love seeing this. Trump doesnt need to drain the swamp, the swamp is draining itself.

Unfortunately, change will not come from anything political.  Only when the value of the dollar will not support the infrastructure of the federal government.  Of course, that's not going to be for a long time because there is an entire world of extremely cheap labor that is willing to live a very low standard of living so that Americans can afford to live a better life....not a great life, but certainly a life where most of us here on ZH are not living out of our cars or in tents.  In the end, it's just conditioning.  If people are use to be wage slaves and debt slaves, they know no better way.  In fact, the plebs are willing to have children so that there kids can also be wage slaves and debt slaves.  You want a permanent solution?  Don't give the colony any more wage slaves.  Yes, it is that simple in the LONG RUN.

Whether they realize it or not, this is Waterloo for the reds. If they do nothing to stop what's going on they are toast.And if they do nothing again we'd be better with their destruction, just remove them from the equation completely. FBI has been politically corrupted for a long time. Hillary asked them ~30 years ago to send her their confidential background check files, and they did.

So what are Trey Gowdy and the few supposed to do when at least 90% of the others are for the deep state, Clinton and corruption?  Ron Paul was a lone voice for a long time and people thought what he said was crazy.  It took years for the dumb sheep to finally realize he was correct.  It takes more than a couple of men to expose and fight this out of control government and corruption.  Just look how utterly crooked the FBI is and then think what it takes to stand up against that.  Seth Rich tried to expose these traitorous scum as did Peter Smith (Clinton emails) and look what happened to them.  One ended up with two bullets in the back and the other with his head in a bag of helium.  The people at Judcial Watch have been doing a lot of work gathering information, investigating corruption and exposing corruption.  What are you doing Jack McGriff?

Gowdy is a wannabe tough guy who talks like a fighting gamecock, but is little more than a preening peacock.Over a year and $15 million spent "investigating" Benghazi, and somehow his committee can't seem to ask the right questions or call the right witnesses.Know anything about his background?He was a Federal Prosecutor for 6 years, then SC State Solicitor for 10 years before running for Congress in 2010.  During this time, he did a good job of self-promotion, and figured out how to get on TV a lot.  This guy is like a smoke bomb.  A lot of noise designed to provide cover.
