More FBI Agents Turn On Comey
In a recent Report we noted that former US Attorney for the District of Columbia Joe diGenova called FBI Director James Comey a “dirty cop” and that there was increasing dissent within the FBI at his mishandling of the Clinton email investigation. (If you want to read that click here.)
It is good news for America that there are still some honest people inside the FBI and DOJ who will not let this stand.
They, too, know that Comey is a “dirty cop” who has brought disrepute on their organization and they are disgusted by it.
If Comey thought he was going to get away with this and that it would simply fade away, it seems he was sadly mistaken. As time passes, the anger and embarrassed is increasing as more and more agents realize the damage he has done.
Comey has not only lost the confidence of his agents, but much worse, many have also come to the conclusion that he is indeed a crook.
More agents are now coming forward and telling their stories. They’re calling their former friends outside the bureau asking for help to make it clear to the public how they feel.
Former agents also want to come forward to talk.
They are saying that the Clinton email investigation is, “… a textbook case where a grand jury should have been convened, but was not. That is appalling. We talk about it in the office and don’t know how Comey can keep going.”
“We didn’t search their house. We always search the house. The search should not just have been for private electronics, which contained classified material, but even for printouts of such material.”
“There should have been a complete search of their residence. That the FBI did not seize devices is unbelievable. The FBI even seizes devices that have been set on fire.”
Another special agent who worked counter-terrorism and criminal cases noted that, “Comey was never an investigator or special agent. The special agents are trained investigators and they are insulted that Comey included them in ‘collective we’ statements in his testimony to imply that the SAs agreed that there was nothing there to prosecute. All the trained investigators agree that there is a lot to prosecute but he stood in the way.”
He added, “The idea that [the Clinton email case] didn’t go to a grand jury is ridiculous.”
There is no doubt that there is a growing lack of confidence within the FBI in the integrity and even competence of James Comey. If the Director of the FBI cannot even command the respect of his own agents how are the general public supposed to have confidence in him – or the organization he heads?
Obviously Obama and Clinton are part of the cover up so they will do nothing about this travesty of justice. It is up to congress, using its oversight role, to pursue the matter by issuing subpoenas to get agents to say under oath and on the record what they have been saying privately. Only in that way will they be able to save the image and reputation of the once proud FBI.
