    ‘Trump Was Right’: ...New FBI Texts Detail Internal Furor Over Investigation

    https://thefederalist.com/2020/09/24...investigation/




    Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents tasked by fired former Director James Comey to take down Donald Trump during and after the 2016 election were so concerned about the agency’s potentially illegal behavior that they purchased liability insurance to protect themselves less than two weeks before Trump was inaugurated president, previously hidden FBI text messages show. The explosive new communications and internal FBI notes were disclosed in federal court filings today from Sidney Powell, the attorney who heads Michael Flynn’s legal defense team.


    “[W]e all went and purchased professional liability insurance,” one agent texted on Jan. 10, 2017, the same day CNN leaked details that then-President-elect Trump had been briefed by Comey about the bogus Christopher Steele dossier. That briefing of Trump was used as a pretext to legitimize the debunked dossier, which was funded by the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign and compiled by a foreign intelligence officer who was working for a sanctioned Russian oligarch.




    “Holy crap,” an agent responded. “All the analysts too?”


    “Yep,” the first agent said. “All the folks at the Agency as well.”

    ...

    “I’m tellying [sic] man, if this thing ever gets FOIA’d, there are going to be some tough questions asked,” one agent wrote. “[A]nd a great deal of those will be related to Brian having a scope way outside the boundaries of logic[.]”


    “[REDACTED] is one of the worst offenders of the rabbit holes and conspiracy theories,” an agent texted. “This guy traveled with that guy, who put down 3rd guy as his visa sponsor. 3rd guy lives near a navy base, therefore…[.]”

    ...

    “So razor [Crossfire Razor was the investigation of Flynn, which found no wrongdoing or security issues, and was supposed to shut down in Nov/Dec 2016. DOJ/FBI management kept it open by abusing National Security Letters, later claiming they "forgot to close it".] is going to stay open???” an agent wrote on Jan. 5.


    “[Y]ep,” another FBI agent responded. “[C]rimes report being drafted.”


    “F,” the first agent wrote back.


    “[W]hat’s the word on how [Obama’s] briefing went?” one agent asked, referring to the Jan. 5 meeting.


    “Dont know but people here are scrambling for info to support certain things and its a mad house,” an FBI agent responded.


    “[J]esus,” an agent wrote back. “[T]rump was right. [S]till not put together….why do we do this to ourselves. [W]hat is wrong with these people[?]?

    The "Trump was right" agent is referring to the fact Trump was scheduled to get an intelligence briefing on "Russian interference", but it was delayed a week. Trump put out a tweet on 03 Jan 17 that said

    The "Intelligence" briefing on so-called "Russian hacking" was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!

    This comes as no surprise to many who have been following this. Sadly, I expect one side (and their allies in media) to outright ignore these inconvenient facts.

    I'll believe how seriously this is being taken when I see those involved being made accountable for their actions.

    So the claim is essentially, that the agents bought liability insurance to help cover them for their illegal actions they did at the direction of the Director? Is there a brain drain at the FBI?

    No, just an integrity drain.

    Don't you remember the congressional hearings when the public lost all faith in the FBI as an institution?
    Yeah, that didn't happen without reason, lol. We just didn't know the full extent until now.
    Do not interrupt your enemy while they are making a mistake.
