[Flashback] FBI Agents Say Comey ‘Stood In The Way’ Of Clinton Email Investigation
Daily Caller ^ | 10-17-2016 | Kerry Picket

Posted on 03/17/2018 9:58:38 PM PDT by Trump_vs_Evil_Witch

FBI agents say the bureau is alarmed over Director James Comey deciding not to suggest that the Justice Department prosecute Hillary Clinton over her mishandling of classified information.

“This is a textbook case where a grand jury should have convened but was not. That is appalling,” an FBI special agent who has worked public corruption and criminal cases said of the decision. “We talk about it in the office and don’t know how Comey can keep going.” The agent was also surprised that the bureau did not bother to search Clinton’s house during the investigation.

“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,” he said.

Amazingly limited and small people, whose greatest strength lie in their lack of ethics and willingness to anything, legal or illegal, to gain and maintain power. Comey is a failure as a person, and is too self-convinced and arrogant to even know it.

Depends on what you use to measure success/failure.

From the article: After graduating from law school, Comey became a law clerk to a U.S. District Judge in Manhattan and later became an associate in a law firm in the city.

One wonders, how many people have died, how many lives have been ruined, how much pain has been endured, and how much stupidity has been rendered within government because of law school graduates.

Proving that even though it was known and made public, the FBI did nothing to correct it. I'm not blaming the rank and file because they were under the thumb of their bosses.

Thank you for marking this title as a “FLASHBACK”!

It’s great news to have gotten confirmation that the good guys in the FBI knew what was going on and are willing to talk.

Too bad that to my knowledge the good guys were never subpoenaed to appear, before these investigative house committees. They were hoping to be subpoenaed and the phone never rang? They can’t very well just volunteer.

Anyway, their testimony option may become much more valuable in coming months, when the swamp kicks back.

There's only one true measurement for success/failure. It's not fame. It's not 'power' (whatever that is..). It's not wealth. It's defined by how much you've given of yourself, and how many can honestly say that their lives were changed for the better because of you.

Nailed it.

I am flummoxed by the weight of ALL of this. This will inevitably turn out very bad for America. The left wants to string it along no matter how long it takes. They may very well have 175 million sheep in the pocket.

I sometimes find POTUS Trump a miracle considering that we actually went through and are still going through a coup.

Yeah, correct that is. What is interesting about this, though, is that for all the power at the top, the ones who flatter themselves that they are the proper ruling class, there are their subordinates who are truer to their mission who can undo even them. What is going on now in the shadows is the real struggle for the soul of their organization, the integrity of its mission, and whatever value left that they can offer to their country. The FBI will never be the same after this, whatever the outcome. I'm praying the country will.

Good to have this stroll down memory lane b/c it underlines the shocking cover-up revelations that came later.


Prof Turley comments: former FBI Director James Comey has been alleged to have removed and disclosed classified FBI information
(an analogy to the current controversy surrounding Andrew McCabe's leaking).

ANALYSIS: This is more fallout from the crooked Obama Admin.
After Hillary lost, they were scared ****less. The Obama govt cover-up
was intense and continued full force to hastily get rid of damning evidence.

The scope and dimension of the Obama criminality is indicated by the type of removals-----described as an
"agreement" Obama had with Secy of State Hillary (smirk). Keep in mind, this is THEIR list. No one knows what damning evidence the culprits slipped into the haul that they kept secret.


BACKSTORY: Obama State Dept Made Deal With Hillary Allowing Removal Of Records
By RYAN SAAVEDRA,, December 15, 2017

Newly-revealed documents obtained by conservative watchdog Judicial Watch reveal that the Obama State Dept
allowed Secy of State Hillary Clinton and her top aide Huma Abedin to remove sensitive documents
that were not to be made public records (including official “Muslim Engagement Documents”).

Judicial Watch received the records on Thursday in response to a FOIA request that sought all DS-1904 forms completed by or on behalf of Former Secy Hillary Clinton, Former Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills, Former Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin, and Former Deputy Chief of Staff Jacob Sullivan.

Clinton and Abedin were permitted to remove both electronic and physical records, claiming “they were ‘personal’ materials and ‘unclassified, non-record materials,’ including files of Clinton’s calls and schedules, which were not to be made public.”

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton noted the gravity of the latest revelations, stating they showed further corruption in the Obama administration and with Clinton. “We already know the Obama State Department let Hillary Clinton steal and then delete her government emails, which included classified information,” Fitton said in a statement. “But these new records show that was only part of the scandal. These new documents show the Obama State Department had a deal with Hillary Clinton to hide her calls logs and schedules, which would be contrary to FOIA and other laws.”

Electronic records Clinton was allowed to remove:

Copy of files titled “daily files.”

Non-record copy of a log of calls the Secretary made since 2004.

Official and personal copy of the Secretary’s “call grid” which is a running list of calls she wants to make. Physical records Clinton was allowed to remove: 16 boxes of personal schedules from 1993-2008 (prior to her becoming Secretary of State). 29 boxes of miscellaneous public schedules ranging from her time as FLOTUS all the way up to her appointment at the State Department.

1 box of personal reimbursable receipts.

1 box of personal photos.

1 box personal schedule.

Personal correspondence.

Daily file binders. Gift binders. Gifts (actual). Topic binders.

Electronic records Abedin was allowed to remove:

Outlook contacts.

Physical records Abedin was allowed to remove (5 boxes):

Travel Records

Muslim Engagement Documents

Newspaper Articles

Gift Archive Binder

FLOTUS “Courtesy Storage/Box Content List” Binder CODEL Trips Binder

Menu Cards & Table Arrangement Binder

Personal Event Planner (2001 thru 2011)


J/W SUMMATION “The originals of some Clinton documents were retained, such as the call logs and schedules,” Judicial Watch reports “For other records, including material that predates Clinton’s tenure, there is no indication that a copy was made.

The most significant of these are Hillary's personal correspondence and gift binders,
which could reflect Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative ties.”

Secy Hillary routinely sent her official itinerary to the Foundation so that Bill could determine who to shakedown next.

Huma was “allowed” to remove “Muslim Engagement Documents” from the State Dept. Here’s a clue as to why they needed removal.

FBI takes on ‘Islamophobia’: White nationalism seen as bigger threat than jihadism Leo Hohmann ^ | 1/26/18 | FR Posted by markomalley

Two Michigan residents attended a BRIDGES meeting hosted by the Detroit office of the FBI recently that left them stunned by the level of Islamist infiltration at the Bureau. BRIDGES is a quarterly FBI outreach program that stands for Building Respect in Diverse Groups to Enhance Sensitivity, whereby the FBI hosts workshops for law enforcement and various immigrant communities.

They’ve been held in Boston, Detroit, Houston and Minneapolis-St. Paul and some city police departments host similar meetings on their own, without the FBI in attendance. According to the FBI website, BRIDGES “brings together members of diverse communities and state, local, and federal law enforcement agencies to discuss issues and concerns within their communities.” In southeastern Michigan, those diverse communities include an array of Islamic migrant enclaves, both Shia and Sunni, as well as Coptic, Chaldean and Assyrian Christians forced to flee their Middle Eastern homelands by the Islamic State and other jihadist groups. The outreaches can sometimes go to bizarre lengths to demonstrate the FBI’s respect for Islam. In St. Paul, for example, the FBI boasted in its Oct. 7, 2014 edition of the Law Enforcement Bulletin that the local police department “hosted its first halal cookout” with the Somali Muslim community.

The Jan. 10 FBI BRIDGES meeting in Michigan serves as a fresh reminder of how the FBI has made a concerted effort to divert the eyes of law enforcement away from Muslim communities as potential breeding grounds for terror and refocus attention on “Islamophobic” American citizens. The meeting, held at the Troy Police and Fire Training Center in Oakland County, an affluent suburb of Detroit, was described as “painful to watch” by two guests who attended. Dick Manasseri, an activist with Secure Michigan and a resident of Oakland County, gained entry to the meeting by way of a guest invitation from the American Middle Eastern Christian Congress, a regular attendee. But he said he heard nothing about the plight of persecuted Middle Eastern Christians now living in Oakland County. Instead, almost the entire hour-and-a-half meeting was spent focusing on Islamic religious and cultural practices and trying to debunk any derogatory information police officers may have received about Islamic ideology.

The FBI’s point person for this task was Bushra Alawie, a young female Muslim wearing a full head covering, or hijab. Alawie served in the Army National Guard and upon leaving the Guard in September 2016 the FBI hired her to be its “community outreach specialist” in Detroit. The mother of four spoke confidently and without any trace of an accent during her presentation on Islamic “cultural education.” “I get that initial look like, ‘is that really Bushra’ because of my visibly Muslim attire,” she told Detroit’s WXYZ-TV in 2016. “Immediately those rumors are dispelled and it’s business as usual.” Alawie admitted in the WXYZ interview that her real mission at the FBI is not to ferret out tips and information useful in the apprehension of terrorists but rather it is to “combat Islamophobia.”

That just happens to be the same exact mission of the Muslim Brotherhood-offshoot Council on American-Islamic Relations, which has an entire division called the Department to Monitor and Combat Islamophobia. And while he did not attend the January meeting, CAIR’s Michigan chapter head, Dawud Walid, has a standing invitation to the FBI’s quarterly BRIDGES meetings in metro Detroit. Also on the FBI’s invite list is CAIR’s former Michigan chapter leader, Muthanna Al-Hanooti, who was convicted in 2011 of conspiring to work for a foreign government, Saddam Hussein’s Iraq, and making false statements to the same FBI. Yes, that would be the same FBI which now courts him as a guest at its Detroit-area outreach meetings.

WATCH VIDEO AT WEB SITE : Meet Bushra Alawie, a Muslim woman working for the FBI

About that phrase “Allahu Akbar,” so frequently shouted during the commission of Islamic terrorist attacks, Alawie assured the police officers in attendance not to worry or give it a second thought. According to her, “Allahu Akbar”:

<><>Is said by Muslims 85 times a day

<><>Was said by Jews and Christians before Islam began

<><>Would be used to celebrate the birth of a child or in the prayer of a sick person

<><>Is perfectly normal and not particularly associated with violent jihad.

She explained that “jihad” means: An inner struggle – for her to “not eat cheesecake” Higher jihad – inner struggle Lower Jihad – to defend one’s property.

She mentioned that “Jihad” was even a name taken by Christian men on occasion and that there was an FBI employee of Palestinian descent whose name was Jihad. According to Alawie, if we Americans understand these subtleties, then we will be well on our way to wiping out Islamophobia. Where did the impetus for this FBI focus on Islamophobia come from?

It certainly did not originate in Oakland County, Michigan, or even Washington. It’s international in scope. “Combating Islamophobia” has been a top priority, since at least 2005, of the United Nations and the Muslim Brotherhood-dominated Organization of Islamic Cooperation, a 57-nation group of Muslim-majority nations that makes up the largest voting bloc at the U.N.

The OIC adopted its 10-year Strategic Action Plan to Overcome Islamophobia in 2005, calling for nations to pass new laws “including deterrent punishments” for those guilty of Islamophobia. This crime was described as any speech that counters the OIC’s statement that “Islam is the religion of moderation and tolerance.”

This 10-year plan served as the basis for the 2011 U.N. Human Rights Resolution 16/18, which encourages every nation in the world to adopt hate-speech laws making “defamation of religion” a crime. There is only one religion, however, that seeks to punish people for speech deemed offensive to its members – Islam. Many nations in Western Europe, including the UK, Germany and Sweden obliged, as did Canada, and passed hate-speech laws geared toward punishing these vile Islamophobes. It was also around this same time frame – 2010 to 2012 – that lesson plans in public schools across the United States started incorporating large sections on Islam, emphasizing it as a religion of peace and tolerance. Any teacher who resisted was an Islamophobe.

In 2013 the OIC opened an office in Brussels explicitly for the purpose of combating Islamophobia in Europe.In February 2017 U.N. Secretary General Antonio Gutteres cited “Islamophobia” as the fuel that has ignited the rise of global terrorism. This U.N. focus on Islamophobia came during the peak offensives of ISIS, al-Nusra and other jihadist groups conducting a genocide against Christian minorities in Iraq and Syria – exposing the global body’s agenda as more concerned about speech deemed offensive to Muslims than beheadings, rapes and mass-murdering of Christians.

Philip Haney, a former Customs and Border Protection officer who became a founding member of the Department of Homeland Security in 2003 and a member of the Advanced Targeting Team before retiring in July 2015, said the FBI did not get to the point of rolling out Bushra Alawie overnight. When Haney tried to blow the whistle on Homeland Security ineptitude, he found himself the target of repeated investigations and harassment. A critical data template he developed to catch terrorists before they strike was erased from the DHS computer system. He was an Islamophobe.

Haney believes the term “Islamophobia” was created by the global Islamic movement to set up a watered-down version of the blasphemy laws that terrorize Christians and other religious minorities in the Middle East. Instead of a stern-looking mullah or sheikh enforcing the blasphemy laws under penalty of death, the Muslims in the West use people like Bushra Alawie, who deliver the same warning with a smile, under penalty of losing one’s reputation and career.

“She wouldn’t have been given that platform under the old rules,” Haney said. “These concessions to Islam have been developing for a long time, and the fact that someone like her would be endorsed by the FBI and given that platform, it would never have happened without all those previous developments at the OIC, U.N., and the fervent work of Obama holdovers in the FBI.”

Scrubbing FBI training manuals One of the more crucial developments came in 2011 – the same year the U.N. adopted Resolution 16/18. That’s when more than 50 Muslim organizations, many with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, sent a letter to Obama’s then-deputy national security adviser John Brennan demanding he remove from FBI training manuals all references to Islam deemed offensive to Muslims. They also requested that the FBI and DHS rid themselves of all “biased experts” – people like Haney – and “immediately create an inter-agency task force to address the problem.”

Brennan and then-FBI chief Robert Mueller fell over like a stack of dominos. They immediately scrubbed the training manuals and began purging federal agencies of patriots with expert knowledge of Islamist ideology. Instead of true terrorism experts, police would receive training from people like Bushra Alawie, the smooth-talking, hijab-wearing Muslim apologist with the contagious smile. Since most local police chiefs get training from the FBI Academy, the same drivel that now passes for counter-terrorist instruction at the Bureau gets filtered down to police departments nationwide. But Trump is rectifying all of this right? Unfortunately, no. All of the Muslim infiltrations of the government remain in place. Hiring a woman like Alawie to present an unrealistic view of Islam is the new normal at the FBI.

Other highlights from the BRIDGES meeting: Troy Mayor Dane Slater welcomed the meeting attendees to the “most diverse city in Michigan.” Troy Police Chief Gary Mayer, along with four of his senior officers, welcomed their federal counterparts from the FBI and witnessed the guidance provided by the FBI regarding the “normalcy of Allahu Akbar” and ”the benevolent jihad.” Praise was offered for the Obama-appointed former U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade who was fired by Trump. Examples offered of domestic terrorism repeatedly focused on white supremacist groups, who are seen as more dangerous than Islamic terrorism according to the teaching of the previous administration and the United Nations-endorsed Strong Cities Network. The FBI’s special agent in charge of Detroit said there remains no clear motive for the Las Vegas massacre. Mental health was injected as an explanation for violent activity per the Muslim Brotherhood playbook. Celebration of the long-standing civil rights partnership between the FBI and the Muslim community was marked with recognition awards. “Everything was about welcoming, welcoming, welcoming,” Manasseri said. “It was terribly discouraging, including when they talked about domestic terrorism and they kept coming back to white supremacism and how do you protect us from white nationalism? Stunning.” To counter the false and incomplete training being given by the FBI, Manasseri has co-founded a project called Sharia Crime Stoppers in partnership with a retired police chief.

“The Muslim Brotherhood-managed FBI and its pandering to Islam at 60-plus BRIDGES meetings since the 9/11 terrorist attacks provides ample evidence that Michigan is already living under Sharia, even while it contemplates the candidacy of Sharia-compliant and Muslim Brotherhood-groomed candidate Abdul El-Sayed for governor,” Manasseri said.

El-Sayed is running on the Democratic ticket in Michigan’s 2018 gubernatorial race. CAIR’s Dawud Walid has already said, in an article for the Detroit News, that any questions to Muslim candidates about Sharia law are off limits. For any journalist or concerned citizen to ask such a question would be Islamophobic.
