Skip to comments.The corruption at the CIA and FBI is past the point of no return

Yesterday morning Joe Concha tweeted out an article by Mike Morell, a former Deputy Director of the CIA from 2010-2013. Morell said, in essence, "the only culprit in the Flynn unmasking scandal is the Trump administration."
I've never liked Morell. I always found him slimy and less than honest. Others have as well. During the Benghazi episode Morell was thought to be "lacking candor" to coin a phrase. Here is one take:
After former acting CIA Director Mike Morell testified to the House Intelligence Committee that he is the one who changed the Benghazi talking points, Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) renewed her call for a select committee to investigate the attack. She suggested that Morell either lied to senators shortly after the attack, or lied during his testimony today.Steve Hayes:
Very specific language presumably based on intelligence we've gathered. And he kind of shrugged it off when you asked him about it. Well you can't shrug it off. Don't we deserve something better in this country than to have intelligence professionals who mislead as a matter of course. Who did it at the time, did it in their book, do it in interviews. Shouldn't we expect that our intelligence professionals tell the truth and be straight with the American people?Morell also was quicker than lightning to subsequently seize a seat on talk shows and stake out the democrat position.
It was Morell's logorrhea that pushed me over the edge with regard to our Intelligence communities.
So to repeat Steve Hayes' question-
Shouldn't we expect that our intelligence professionals tell the truth and be straight with the American people?
We should, but we can't. They're all corrupt. All of them. The CIA and the FBI are horrendous. It seems to me that the more dishonest you are the higher up in the organization you go.
James Clapper is a documented liar. He said "there could be evidence" of Trump-Russia collusion despite having testified at the same time that he never saw any such evidence.
Andrew McCabe got fired because his dishonesty. He said "I think it's possible" that Trump is a Russian agent without the slightest bit of evidence.
John Brennan is a documented liar. Brennan used his position to spy on the Senate.
James Comey is a galactic liar. who admitted he "took advantage" of the early Trump White House confusion to "send a couple of guys" over to frame Michael Flynn in violation of FBI protocols. He would speculate that there could be a "pee tape" again without a shred of proof it ever existed.
These are the heads of intelligence services. They are the leaders. What the f**k is wrong with them that they can so easily lie to the country?

Who’s the Hobbit in the middle?
Read Police State...By Gerry Spence...
DOJ and FBI have been corrupt for forty years...
They entrap and you lied everybody...
Over 90% never go to trail
...What the f**k is wrong with them that they can so easily lie to the country?...
liberalism is a mental disorder with no conscience, the end justifies the means they belong in jail now.
until justice for all happens we are no longer the home of the free..ee are all slaves.
I disagree as they’ve also proven they’re very effective with right leadership.
Just now figuring this out? If you think the FBI and the CIA are corrupt, you will die of a heart attack should the IRS ever be investigated.
Whos the Hobbit in the middle?
Sméagol - and hes playing with something in his pocketses.
Not anymore! Now we have people like Wray in to clean things up and .... oh. He's actively covering stuff up and blocking attempts to reform? Huh.
Never mind, it all needs to be blown up and rebuilt as a thousand separate small agencies with limited power and lots of oversight.
Looking at that picture of Comey, I am left wondering how much time in the morning does he spend looking in the mirror practicing that?
Having communists appointed by the communist usurper has corrupted both agencies beyond repair.
Shut them down.
They are more of a danger to us than the threats they pretend to protect us from that they are never right about.
I say let them serve their sentences as free men in a foreign country. Any friends or family can take the long plane ride. We don’t need to feed them.
Its hard for me to imagine any sort of curtailing of the fed leo/intelligence organizations at this point that would successfully change their culture or operating procedures. It was probably too late 50+ years ago to do anything about the culture of the alphabet agencies.
What politician is ever going to actually cut budgets and personnel during the 24 news cycle era? What if there is then an attack of some sort? Its not like they seem to foil many, even when given specific tips. But no pol wants the label of having endangered security by cutting the alphabet clans beforehand when the next actual crisis comes.
When was that?
That’s after the fact.
They were told ahead of time about the Boston bombers and failed to do anything.
The hobbit in the middle is one of the hecklers from the Muppet Show.
Do a search of political contributions from the Department of Justice, and you’ll see nearly go to Democrats.
They’re bureaucrats. The FBI is way more bureau than it is investigation. The CIA is way more agency than it is intel.
Power corrupts and that much power can never be contained. It is just plain evil. J Edgar was a devil and it has continued. It attracts the wrong kind of people. People who want power over others.
