    This Is a Very Bad Report for the FBI

    And Comey still can't be truthful.



    This is why you don’t want to rush a response to a 500-page inspector-general report. Former FBI Director James Comey, writing on the New York Times op-ed page, posted just a short time ago:

    First, the inspector general’s team went through the F.B.I.’s work with a microscope and found no evidence that bias or improper motivation affected the investigation, which I know was done competently, honestly and independently.

    That’s . . . not quite accurate. From the FBI inspector-general’s report, page 149:

    . . . these text messages also caused us to assess Strzok’s decision in October 2016 to prioritize the Russia investigation over following up on the Midyear-related investigative lead discovered on the Weiner laptop. We concluded that we did not have confidence that this decision by Strzok was free from bias.

    And then on page 161:

    Nevertheless, we found that Page’s statement, on its face, consisted of a recommendation that the Midyear team consider how Clinton would treat the FBI if she were to become President in deciding how to handle Clinton’s interview. Suggesting that investigative decisions be based on this consideration was inappropriate and created an appearance of bias.

    Further.

    on page 420-421:

    We were deeply troubled by text messages sent by Strzok and Page that potentially indicated or created the appearance that investigative decisions were impacted by bias or improper considerations.


    . . . when one senior FBI official, Strzok, who was helping to lead the Russia investigation at the time, conveys in a text message to another senior FBI official, Page, that “we’ll stop” candidate Trump from being elected — after other extensive text messages between the two disparaging candidate Trump — it is not only 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. This is antithetical to the core values of the FBI and the Department of Justice.

    HE/THEY (poster) HAS GOTTA SPIN! Took all the starch out of their boxers. No there there. Will see if Strzok gets fired. Man if ONLY THE BUREAU knew about some of the shit my NEIGHBOR the FBI agent had to say awhile back! But then it was REPUBLICAN slanted. He probably could have gotten away with it! Slapped on the back. Promoted!!

    The spin on the IG report by the Trump Cult is to be expected.

    But that does not mean any of it is true

    Per the IG report, here is how both Page and Strzok responded when they we're asked in an interview about Strzok's "we'll stop it" text re: Trump getting elected.

    Thanks from Babba and OldGaffer

    I agree that the couple having an affair were remarkable public in their dislike of Trump, Hillary and Bernie. Some points they made: 1. “Hillary Is Corrupt and Trump Is Crazy” and 2. "We both hate everyone and everything.”

    They do get the dumbass award.

    That isn't the FBI. That is just two people impressing each other and biased against Trump and Hillary. I agree with the report.

    Well, I'm only reading the Executive Summary. I am swamped with work so don't know when I'll be able to do more than that. I'm on P. 13 of it at the moment.

    Since when is it required that anyone not have an opinion in politics? Particularly two love birds who are dumber than a rock emailing on a government managed database. Every single person in Washington had a favorite. That alone should not make career personnel fair game. However those two begged to be fired on the grounds of stupid. lol
