A Closer Look At Extreme FBI Bias Revealed In OIG Report

As we digest and unpack the DOJ Inspector General's 500-page report on the FBI's conduct during the Hillary Clinton email investigation "matter," damning quotes from the OIG's findings have begun to circulate, leaving many to wonder exactly how Inspector General Michael Horowitz was able to conclude:

 "We did not find documentary or testimonial evidence that improper considerations, including political bias, directly affected the specific investigative actions we reviewed"

We're sorry, that just doesn't comport with reality whatsoever. And it really feels like the OIG report may have had a different conclusion at some point. Just read IG Horowitz's own assessment that "These texts are “Indicative of a biased state of mind but even more seriously, implies a willingness to take official action to impact the Presidential candidate’s electoral prospects."

Of course, today's crown jewel is a previously undisclosed exchange between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page in which Page asks "(Trump’s) not ever going to become president, right? Right?!" to which Strzok replies "No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.

Nevermind the fact that the FBI Director, who used  personal emails for work purposes, tasked Strzok, who used personal emails for work purposes, to investigate Hillary Clinton's use of personal emails for work purposes. Of course, we know it goes far deeper than that... 

The Wall Street Journal's Kimberley Strassel also had plenty to say in a Twitter thread:

1) Don't believe anyone who claims Horowitz didn't find bias. He very carefully says that he found no "documentary" evidence that bias produced "specific investigatory decisions." That's different 

2) It means he didn't catch anyone doing anything so dumb as writing down that they took a specific step to aid a candidate. You know, like: "Let's give out this Combetta immunity deal so nothing comes out that will derail Hillary for President."

3) But he in fact finds bias everywhere. The examples are shocking and concerning, and he devotes entire sections to them. And he very specifically says in the summary that they "cast a cloud" on the entire "investigation's credibility." That's pretty damning.

4) Meanwhile this same cast of characters who the IG has now found to have made a hash of the Clinton investigation and who demonstrate such bias, seamlessly moved to the Trump investigation. And we're supposed to think they got that one right?

5) Also don't believe anyone who says this is just about Comey and his instances of insubordination. (Though they are bad enough.) This is an indictment broadly of an FBI culture that believes itself above the rules it imposes on others.

6) People failing to adhere to their recusals (Kadzik/McCabe). Lynch hanging with Bill. Staff helping Comey conceal details of presser from DOJ bosses. Use of personal email and laptops. Leaks. Accepting gifts from media. Agent affairs/relationships.

7)It also contains stunning examples of incompetence. Comey explains that he wasn't aware the Weiner laptop was big deal because he didn't know Weiner was married to Abedin? Then they sit on it a month, either cuz it fell through cracks (wow) or were more obsessed w/Trump

8) And I can still hear the echo of the howls from when Trump fired Comey. Still waiting to hear the apologies now that this report has backstopped the Rosenstein memo and the obvious grounds for dismissal.

So, let's review more of the exchanges which had no bearing on the "unbiased" report:

(h/t Robby Starbuck, Paul Sperry and others)

 “OIG discovered texts and instant messages between employees on the investigative team, on FBI devices, expressing hostility toward then candidate Donald Trump and statements of support for then candidate Hillary Clinton.

Viva le resistance!

In one shocking exchange between two unnamed FBI employees which we assume to be Strzok and Page, "Attorney 1" asks "Attorney 2" "Is it making you rethink your commitment to the Trump administration?" to which "Attorney 2" replied "Hell no," adding "Viva le resistance." 

Some of Strzok and Page's greatest hits: 

August 16, 2015, Strzok: “[Bernie Sanders is] an idiot like Trump. Figure they cancel each other out.”

February 12, 2016, Page:  “I’m no prude, but I’m really appalled by this. So you don’t have to go looking (in case you hadn’t heard), 
Trump called him the p-word. The man has no dignity or class. [texted the FBI agents having an extramarital affair] He simply cannot be president. 

February 12, 2016, Strzok:  “Oh, [Trump’s] abysmal.  I keep hoping the charade will end and people will just dump him.  The problem, then, is Rubio will likely lose to Cruz.  The Republican party is in utter shambles. When was the last competitive ticket they offered?”

March 3, 2016, Page: “God trump is a loathsome human.

March 3, 2016, Strzok: “Omg [Trump’s] an idiot.

March 3, 2016, Page:“He’s awful.”

March 3, 2016, Strzok:  “God Hillary should win 100,000,000-0.”

March 3, 2016, Page: “Also did you hear [Trump] make a comment about the size of his d*ck earlier?  This man cannot be president.”

March 12, 2016:  Page forwarded an article about a “far right” candidate in Texas, stating, “[W]hat the f is wrong with people?”  Strzok replied, “That Texas article is depressing as hell.  But answers how we could end up with President trump.”

March 16, 2016, Page: “I cannot believe Donald Trump is likely to be an actual, serious candidate for president.”

June 11, 2016, Strzok: “They fully deserve to go, and demonstrate the absolute bigoted nonsense of Trump.”

July 18, 2016, Page: “...Donald Trump is an enormous d*uche.”

July 19, 2016, Page: “Trump barely spoke, but the first thing out of his mouth was ‘we’re going to win soooo big.’The whole thing is like living in a bad dream.”

July 21, 2016, Strzok: “Trump is a disaster. I have no idea how destabilizing his Presidency would be.”

August 26, 2016, Strzok:  “Just went to a southern Virginia Walmart. I could SMELL the Trump support....

September 26, 2016, Page:  Page sent an article to Strzok entitled, “Why Donald Trump Should Not Be President,” stating, “Did you read this?  It’s scathing.  And I’m scared.”

October 19, 2016, Strzok:  “I am riled up.  Trump is a fucking idiot, is unable to provide a coherent answer.”

November 7, 2016, Strzok:  Referencing an article entitled “A victory by Mr. Trump remains possible,” Strzok stated, “OMG THIS IS F*CKING TERRIFYING.”

November 13, 2016, Page:  “I bought all the president’s men.  Figure I needed to brush up on watergate.”

Strzok also refers to having "unfinished business" and a need to "fix it" - while also admitting that "there's no big there, there" presumably regarding the Trump-Russia investigation.

While there are many more damning revelations in the OIG report, one would think that given the above, there was more than enough evidence to, at minimum, launch a special counsel - especially when you consider the weak sauce used to justify Mueller's special counsel probe. 

Oh, and Hillary's gloating now...

“Just went to a southern Virginia Walmart. I could SMELL the Trump support....”

We have already SEEN these texts, when the fuck is something actually going to be DONE about it?

Or is the 2A the only answer to that question?

Excactly... it has to come from the people, carrying pitch forks and rope.

This shit won't end until civilized civilians start civil war.

To start:

Throw McCabe in jail.  Comey gets 10 years at Gitmo.

Hang Hillary on Penn Ave.  Live Stream for the world to see how a traitor should be treated.

Bill Clinton is kicked out of the country, sent to Haiti to "rebuild" with Clinton ClownNation.

Lynch, Rice, Breuer, Obama, and Holder get put in jail indefinitely.

Abolish the Fed.

TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK.

Let's just hope that in their brilliant incompetence, the DOJ missed some real nuggets in those 500 pages.  I'm hopeful (but doubtful) that we we will find some more bombshells that will prompt more outrage and uprising/waking of the sheep.

OK, so if Comey broke protocols and was insubordinate in the Clinton probe, then the "probe" and exoneration is bogus. She never really was investigated and cleared and It should be re-opened. Investigate and Prosecute Clinton for real. Make it a sting operation. Get wire tap and surveillance warrants for the entire DOJ, FBI, all courts and judges, heck the entire bureaucracy and all umpteen intelligence organizations, and all known Clinton associates. A dragnet for all the corruption and obstruction of justice by the deep state. Root out the corrupt Clinton crime organization once and for all.

"leaving many to wonder exactly how Inspector General Michael Horowitz was able to conclude:"

Heads up: Horowitz wasn't the author of the conclusion.

adding Sundance comment which follows:

Read, but don’t focus on, the “executive summary” or “conclusions”; those two sections were written by political administrators in FBI and DOJ leadership. Focus on the substance of the documented facts within the IG report. You’ll note the specific facts don’t support the “summary/conclusion”

From the report...I'm going to pull a ravolla-type spam ;-)

"Combetta was interviewed subject to the terms of the immunity agreement on May 3, 2016, by the same two FBI case agents, this time in the presence of the SSA, the CART examiner, all four line prosecutors, and Combetta’s attorneys. According to the FD-302 and contemporaneous notes of the two agents and the CART Examiner, Combetta provided the FBI additional detail regarding his removal of emails from the culling laptops, stating that Mills had requested that he “securely delete the .pst files” in November or December 2014 but had not specifically requested that he use “deletion software.” He told the FBI that he was the one who recommended the use of “BleachBit” because he had used it for other clients. He also acknowledged removing the HRC Archive mailbox from the PRN server between March 25, 2015, and March 31, 2015, and using BleachBit to “shred” any remaining copies of Clinton’s email on the server (Edit: To include certain emails to Chelsea of all people...lol...and the Egyptian Prime Minister about yoga classes & wedding invitations that happened the day before Sept 12 2012, no doubt)... 

...despite his awareness of Congress’s preservation order and his understanding that the order meant that “he should not disturb Clinton’s email data on the PRN server.”

So clearly no "obstruction"!

Addendum:

The May 22, 2015, letter from Under Secretary of State for Management Patrick F. to Clinton attorney Kendall reads in part:

I am writing in reference to the following e-mail that is among the approximately 55,000 pages that were identified as potential federal records and produced on behalf of former Secretary Clinton to the Depatment of State on December 5, 2014: E-mail forwarded by Jacob Sullivan to Secretary Clinton on November 18, 2012 at 8:44 pm (Subject: Fw: FYI- Report of arrests -possible Benghazi connection).

Please be advised that today the above referenced e-mail, which previously was unclassified, has been classified as “Secret” pursuant to Section 1.7(d) of Executive Order 13526 in connection with a review and release under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). In order to safeguard and protect the classified information, I ask – consistent with my letter to you dated March 23 2015 – that you, Secretary Clinton and others assisting her in responding to congressional and related inquiries coordinate in taking the steps set forth below. A copy of the document as redacted under the FOIA is attached to assist you in your search.

****

Once you have made the electronic copy of the documents for the Department, please locate any electronic copies of the above-referenced classified document in your possession. If you locate any electronic copies, please delete them. Additionally, once you have done that, please empty your “Deleted Items” folder.

Because it just wouldn't do to have Hillary's emails stating the obvious while Rice is out saying something else so, we've classified it!

//////

Resuming...

"The agents asked Bentel about allegations by two S/ES-IRM staff members that they had raised concerns about Clinton’s use of personal email to him during separate meetings.According to the State IG report, one of the staff members told the State IG that Bentel told the staff member that “the mission of S/ES-IRM is to support the Secretary” and instructed the staff member to “never speak of the Secretary’s personal email system again.”94 . According to the FD-302 and agent notes, the agents showed Bentel documents that suggested that he was aware that Clinton had a private email server that she used for official business during their joint tenure. One of the agents explained that the purpose of asking Bentel about his knowledge of the server was to assess whether Clinton’s use of the server was sanctioned by the State Department. However, Bentel maintained that he was unaware that Clinton used personal email to conduct official business until it was reported in the news and denied that anyone had raised concerns about it to him."

The staff are obviously lying Trumptards!

/////

"On April 9, 2016, Mills appeared with Wilkinson for a voluntary interview concerning Mills’s tenure at State. According to a FBI memorandum (“Mills Interview Memorandum”), shortly before the interview Strzok advised the prosecutors and Laufman that the agent conducting the interview would be making a statement at the start of the interview “concerning the scope of [the] interview, the FBI’s view of the importance of the email sorting process, and the expectation of a follow-up interview once legal issues had been resolved.” Witnesses referred to this statement as “the preamble.”

Comey told the OIG that he approved of the preamble but did not suggest it, and McCabe stated that he “authorized” the preamble. McCabe told us that he directed the FBI team not to discuss the preamble with the prosecutors before the day of the interview because he was “concerned that if we raised another issue with DOJ, we would spend another two weeks arguing over the drafting of the preamble to the interview, which I just was not prepared to do.”

The prosecutors told us that they were surprised and upset because the preamble was inconsistent with their prior representations to Wilkinson and they believed it was strategically ill-advised. The Mills Interview Memorandum states that the prosecutors objected to the preamble but that they were told that “the FBI’s position was not subject to further discussion.” According to the Mills Interview Memorandum, the interviewing agents delivered the preamble at the outset of the interview as planned. Witnesses told us... 

Footnote 100: Baker told us that he had known Wilkinson for many years, and documents show that she had previously reached out to him in Midyear as part of a broad effort to speak with senior Department and FBI officials, up to and including Attorney General Lynch. Lynch and other high level Department officials told us that they did not speak with Wilkinson during the course of the investigation.

...that Wilkinson was visibly angered by the preamble and that she and Mills stepped outside the interview room after the agent delivered it. The prosecutors stated that they convinced Wilkinson and Mills to return for the remainder of the scheduled interview concerning Mills’s tenure. However, according to Prosecutor 1, Mills was “on edge the whole time.”

Footnote 101: According to notes of the interview, the prosecutors told Wilkinson that they were “sandbagged” by the FBI and that they did not know in advance about the preamble. Additionally, according to the notes, Wilkinson informed the prosecutors of the call the previous day from a “senior FBI official.”

Baker or McCabe? I would say Baker, no wonder she was blindsided & pissed, they'll screw anyone & everyone over. Even "close confidantes" at her (and the prosecutors) inferior levels, just to muck up..."the process"

/////

Ah yes, here it is...

"Prosecutors and FBI agents told us that the events surrounding the April 9 Mills interview, including both the preamble and Baker phone call that were planned without Department coordination, caused significant strife and mistrust between the line prosecutors and the FBI.

AAG Carlin told us that the prosecution team asked him to call McCabe and “deliver a message that this is just not an acceptable way to run an investigation.” Carlin told us that he delivered this message to McCabe and also briefed Lynch and Yates on the issues.

Witnesses told us that the strife between the prosecutors and the FBI team culminated in a contentious meeting chaired by McCabe a few days later. On the Department side, this meeting was attended by the line prosecutors, Laufman, and Toscas. Prosecutor 2 told us that during this meeting the prosecutors explained that they were trying to be “careful” in their handling of complicated issues, and that McCabe responded that they should “be careful faster.” Laufman stated that McCabe’s comment “undervalued what we had been able to accomplish to date investigatively through negotiating consent agreements.” According to Laufman’s notes, McCabe agreed that Baker’s unilateral contacts with Wilkinson should not have happened, and Baker agreed not to have further contact with Wilkinson. With respect to the preamble, however, the prosecutors told us that McCabe stated that he would “do it again.”

"Be careful faster"...lol...I mean, what the hell is the matter with you people! There's an election on the line here and my wife Jill is on the ballot riding Hillary's skirt while pocketing $675k from Hillary cronies and...I would "do it again"...well, of course you would.

/////

"On May 4, 2016, a few weeks before Mills and Samuelson were voluntarily interviewed regarding the culling process and a little over a month before the FBI obtained the culling laptops, Strzok and Page exchanged the following text messages. The sender of each message is identified after the timestamp.

8:40 p.m., Page: “And holy shit Cruz just dropped out of the race. It’s going to be a Clinton Trump race. Unbelievable.”

8:41 p.m., Strzok: “What?!?!??”

8:41 p.m., Page: “You heard that right my friend.”

8:41 p.m., Strzok: “I saw trump won, figured it would be a bit.”

8:41 p.m., Strzok: “Now the pressure really starts to finish MYE…”

8:42 p.m., Page: “It sure does. We need to talk about follow up call tomorrow. We still never have.”

No political considerations whatsoever. None...lol.

//////

"The interview of Hillary Clinton took place on Saturday, July 2, 2016. Comey provided a few reasons for conducting the interview on a Saturday, including to complete the interview as soon as possible after the team finished all other investigative steps, to accommodate Clinton’s schedule, and to “keep very low visibility.”

Edit: Because this is how such "matters" of grave import to all handled dontcha know.

"Later that evening, Strzok and Page exchanged several text messages about the dilemma over how many people should attend Clinton’s interview. Based on a review of this exchange, Strzok was concerned that if only two agents and two prosecutors attended the interview and Laufman insisted on being one of the prosecutors, it would be difficult for Strzok to decide whether to send two case agents or himself and one case agent. The following text messages were part of this exchange. The sender of each message is identified after the timestamp.

10:32 p.m., Page: “Do you or Bill [Priestap] fundamentally believe that 3 and 3 is the RIGHT thing for the case? If the answer is no, then you call [McCabe’s advisor] back and say we’re good as is. You have never wavered from saying 2 and 2 is best. I don’t get what the hesitation is now.”

10:52 p.m., Page: “One more thing: she might be our next president. The last thing you need us going in there loaded for bear. You think she’s going to remember or care that it was more doj than fbi?”

10:56 p.m., Strzok: “Agreed.”

No political considerations? No bias? The love birds, lead counter-intel agent (Strzok) and the ahem, FBI "attorney" (Page) are clearly terrified of the target (Hillary) before the so-called interview even happened.

The Deplorables who you fucks created when you helped facilitate the de-industrialization of American and the double punch of open borders to flood cheap labor in. After the carnage then have the balls to call it "flyover country" because they don't want to see what they created.

The thing is, Trump was Comey's boss, and if he decided the Russia coup was a waste of FBI time, he has every right to fire the head of the FBI, for continuing to waist time and money, purposely trying to undermine the election.

Remember, this is before there was a special counsel, and if after a year of investigating there's no there there, there sure as shit wasn't anything back then to investigate!

There is nothing illegal about the President telling Comey to knock it off, or else.  Or even to direct him to investigate the Clinton Foundation.

He should tell the press what they really want to here.  Of course the phony Russia scam played a part in getting Comey fired, rightfully so.  Then he should stand with his fist in the air shouting Fuck the Prestitutes!

For a year now, they've been in a search for something, anything, to investigate, while the Clinton gang has slunk away untouched. 

They've been feigning outrage, looking for any tid bit to rage about anyway, so Trump should fire Sessions, Rosenstein, and Mueller, TODAY. Then we can joyfully watch the Pundits heads explode!

What I got out of this report so far:

 

They ignored the political bias showing us all the deep state is still in charge

Nothing will happen to hillary

They won't name the chosen scapegoats thus showing us all the deep state is running things

They doubled down on Trump and Jr with an investigation into a charity they were involved with and continue to ignore the clinton foundation showing us all the deep state's in charge

This OIG report and it's final opinions is reminesint to Comey's indictment speach of hillary clinton and exoneration.... It's surreal

I hate to even say this, but reading and seeing the self-righteous douchebags in DC who sanctimoniously talk about the rule of law and the interference in our system by Russian trolls on the internet, I can not help but be struck by what Comey, McCabe and Strzok have managed to do by themselves. If there is no punishment for these people, no punishment for Hillary Clinton's gross malfeasance, then what difference is there between Putin's regime and our "Republic?" How is it that the law does not apply to these people/

Hillary willfully mishandled classified information. Seaman Saucier did less, and spent a year in jail. Hillary has done so much, so wrong for so long, and gotten so wealthy through influence peddling and payoffs she might as well be an oligarch - in fact, she is a political oligarch. McCabe lied under oath, and it is clear he and Comey are covering for each other in their political plot to see their padron elected. Comey wanted to be AG, and McCabe Director. Hillary no doubt promised them their dreams. Strzok likely would move up into McCabe's job. So they obstructed justice, but didn't write each other explicit memos about it - and therefore there is no case???? This is a cabal protecting their own, just as they do in Russia and Syria and corrupt South American banana republics.

If the trolls start calling for protest rallies in the streets, they might get them. This kind of blatant abuse of the system with no consequences should get true Americans out in the streets to protest. This is not about Trump. This is about pure political corruption in law enforcement and the Obama Administration. 

Hilary writes "but my emails" about Comey - as if. Hillary, STFU. You lost an election a goddamn platypus could have won. Your utter venality, your shrill self-righteousness, you repugnant enabling of your pig husband... you are personally responsible for Trump's election, and you should be in jail. It feels as if the Mueller investigation is another set up by your boys to ensure the Administration is too distracted to prosecute you. 

What a shameful episode in our country's history.
