“There are many good agents in the FBI...”

Oh yeh? Prove it. We’ll see about that! Those GOOD agents better be gathering data against the treasonous agents, and be ready to expose them once the hammer falls. These GOOD agents must be ready to sacrifice their careers in the FBI and maybe their lives when our nation calls!! We’ll see. We’ll see how many good agents there are.

I think it was always there in plan sight, but I also think that most of us refused to see it.

Frankly, I am heart broken as I always did think our government was different. I really did believe that our elected leaders recognized the gift that we had been given by our Founding Fathers and that very few would abuse that gift.

That this is so deep and so wide spread is a very painful reality.

Obama’s CYA maneuver of January 3, 2017-——the signing of NSA Data-Sharing Order Section 2.3 by AG Lynch —— is the coupe d’etat to blow out The Deep State. Obama’s after-the-fact ex/order contains some unusual language particularly the convoluted language WRT “The Strategic Delay of Section 2.3 of Obama’s Executive Order 12333”:

NOTE WELL: Prior to the formal signing of Section 2.3, greater latitude ALREADY existed within the White House in regards to collection of information – especially in relation to the Trump Campaign. However, once signed, Section 2.3 granted broad latitude to inter-agency sharing of information.

But by the time Obama’s new executive order was signed on January 3, 2017, all that information was already in the possession of Obama White House.

Thus, Susan Rice’s January 20, 2017 email to herself takes on an even greater significance b/c no one was ever supposed to know about the REAL meaning of Obama’s retroactive CYA.....until Rice stupidly laid it all out in an official email.

When Susan Rice stupidly wrote a CYA memo to herself, she inadvertently confessed to a series of crimes that added the time line and inferences about what the outgoing Obama administration illegally concealed from incoming President Trump and his aides.

CYA memos are rarely a good idea. Most often, they reveal things the author never intended——ala Susan Rice’s now-infamous email to herself.

WHY SUSAN RICE WROTE AN EMAIL TO HERSELF........the extraordinary email Obama’s National Security Advisor Susan Rice wrote to herself at 12:15 on January 20, 2017........within minutes of President Trump’s inauguration must have been her last act, more or less, before she vacated the White House. So obviously the email was important to her. But why would it be important to send an email to herself (the only person copied was one of her aides)?

If you read the email, along with Senator Grassley’s letter to Rice, it is obvious that it is a CYA memo. But the question is, whose A is being C’d?
Most attention, so far, has focused on the first two paragraphs of the email, which describe a meeting that occurred around two weeks earlier. The participants included
<><>Barack Obama,
<><>Joe Biden,
<><>James Comey,
<><> Sally Yates–who turns up like a bad penny whenever skulduggery is afoot–
<><>and Rice:

Rice made sure to underscore that Obama began the conversation by stressing his continued commitment to ensuring that every aspect of this issue is handled by the Intelligence and law enforcement communities “by the book”.

Rice writes Obama stressed that he is not asking about, initiating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective. He reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book.

This is pure boilerplate.

It represents, obviously, the company line. But Rice did not write her email to cover Barack Obama’s rear end. If she or anyone else had wanted to document the claim that Obama said to proceed “by the book,” the appropriate course would have been an official memo that copied others who were present and would have gone into the file. (My guess is that such a memo was written, but we haven’t seen it.)

The important part of the email is not the paragraph that purports to exonerate Obama, but the paragraphs that follow: “From a national security perspective, however, President Obama said he wants to be sure that, as we engage with the incoming team, we are mindful to ascertain if there is any reason that we cannot share information fully as it relates to Russia.”

The next paragraph of the email remains classified and has been redacted. The email concludes:

The President asked Comey to inform him if anything changes in the next few weeks that should affect how we share classified information with the incoming team. Comey said he would.

CONCLUSION Why did Susan Rice send herself an email purporting to document this part of the meeting? Because she was C’ing her own A. Rice was nervous about the fact that, at the president’s direction, she had failed to “share information fully as it relates to Russia” with President

Trump’s incoming national security team.
Her actions violated longstanding American tradition. Outgoing administrations have always cooperated in the transition to a new administration, whether of the same or the opposing party, especially on matters relating to national security.

Susan Rice is far from the brightest bulb on the tree, but she was well aware that by concealing facts ostensibly relating to national security from her counterpart in the new administration–General Michael Flynn–she was, at a minimum, violating longstanding civic norms.

If she actually lied to Flynn, she could have been accused of much worse. So Rice wanted to be able to retrieve her email, if she found herself in a sticky situation, and tell the world that she hid relevant facts about Russia from the new administration on Barack Obama’s orders.

What were the secrets that Obama wanted to keep from the new administration? We can easily surmise that the fact that the Steele memo was paid for by the Democratic Party; that the FBI had to some degree collaborated with Steele; that the Clinton campaign had fed some of the fake news in the dossier to Steele; and that Comey’s FBI had used Steele’s fabrications as the basis for FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign were among the facts that Obama and his minions didn’t want Michael Flynn and Donald Trump to know.
Susan Rice, we can infer, was told to keep these secrets, and if anyone ever asked why she had failed to disclose them to Michael Flynn and others on Trump’s team, or even lied to those people, she would have the defense that President Obama ordered her to do it.

There may be more to it than this. The redacted paragraph likely contains more information about what it was that Rice wasn’t supposed to tell the Trump team. One of these days, we will learn what was blacked out.

The fact that Michael Flynn was Susan Rice’s counterpart in the incoming administration may also be significant. We know that the FBI agents who interviewed General Flynn–even Peter Strzok!–reported that they didn’t think he had lied about anything. And yet, Obama’s DOJ and Bob Mueller’s “investigation”–basically a continuation of Obama’s corrupt Department of Justice under another, less accountable name–persecuted Flynn to the point where he finally pled guilty to a single count of lying to the FBI in order, as he says, to end the madness and the financial drain.

Why were the Democrats so determined to discredit General Flynn?

Perhaps because they wanted to pre-empt any outrage that may otherwise have followed on revelations that the Obama administration’s National Security Advisor hid important facts from her successor during the transition, and may have lied to him about those facts, in violation of all American tradition.

“There are many good agents in the FBI but the corrupt top has converted it into The Stasi.”

I do not believe this. Moral people will leave an immoral and corrupt organization.

The FBI is like Congress. Corrupt and contemptuous of the American people.

And the judges were never told about the Clinton connection to Steele and the dossier.

To believe this you must be pretty naive or just plain stupid.

If these "Judges" weren't in on the scheme, immediately upon the public release about the Steele Propaganda, they would have Summoned Every Last Person involved and JAILED them for Contempt and filed Criminal Referral's with the DOJ, All HELL would hasve broke loose.

The Judges are all Corrupt and part of it!!

Offer everyone an opportunity to leave the DOJ and FBI on their own volition. Schedule polygraph tests for every person stating that Mueller uncovered a spy and that there are more in the agencies.

See who leaves. I guarantee it will be the top four levels of the agencies. When Clinton and obama supporters start complaining, calmly state that this is part of Muellers counter intelligence operation.

I’m still waiting for 2% of that 99% of the good FBI and DOJ to stand and proclaim that this is outrageous behavior of the 2%.

If not 2%, how about 1%, or perhaps, just one or two to call this fiasco what it is.

Recent revelations have pretty much vindicated anyone who has been of the belief that the spook agencies have been calling the shots behind the scenes for at least half a century, and constitute their own, very real, nefarious shadow government unbeholden to any constitutional authority.

The FBI is part of the conspiracy to have Trump removed from office.

Other co-conspirators are the NSA, CIA, DOJ, and State Department, in fact, the entire Executive Branch that he is supposed to be in charge of.

Nothing has changed, these Agencies are STILL doing everything they were doing before Snowden exposed them, collecting every text, e-mail, phone call, and bank information from EVERY US citizen, including Congress.

This is why Sessions, Roberts, etc. are compromised and everything Trump says is leaked to the “Press”.

The President and Congress are not running the Government.

The media and the spies are.

Here’s the thing...the FBI didn’t pay him...we did. We unwillingly paid for the coup against the man we elected. These people in government think they are royals entitled to our money and entitled to do what they please with it to protect their positions.

Ain't that the sad truth !
