Inspector General Ramps Up Investigations of FBI Employees
The Epoch Times ^ | December 5, 2019 Updated: December 5, 2019 | PETR SVAB

Open investigations of FBI employees by the Justice Department’s Inspector General (IG) have about doubled in recent years and, as far as available records go, there have never been so many investigations of this kind.

The Office of IG Michael Horowitz had 104 “open criminal or administrative investigations of alleged misconduct related to FBI employees” as of Sept. 30, according to its latest semi-annual report to Congress (pdf).

The number fell from 112 open investigations just six months earlier, but still fit into a heightened trend. In fiscal 2018, the IG reported 84 and 93 open investigations, respectively. In the decade before that, the average was a bit under 51.

It’s not clear what’s behind the increase.

In the past few years, the IG has worked on a number of high-profile investigations, including one into former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe for a self-serving media leak and another into former FBI Director James Comey for disclosure of sensitive information.

In June 2018, the IG released a report on his review of the investigation into the purported mishandling of classified information by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. While the report criticized several FBI officials involved in the probe for political bias, it concluded that “we did not find documentary or testimonial evidence that improper considerations, including political bias, directly affected the specific investigative decisions we reviewed.”

In Japan they would all line up with their traditional swords. Well, some men are honorable.

While the IG is investigating it keeps the prosecutors at bay. Just need to buy enough time until Trump is gone then they will be free again.

Might as well shut it down.
Distribute the work to honest people, if you can find them.

The dishonorable FBI burned almost 100 people to death at Waco, including 20 innocent kids.

Eventual prosecutions by the DoJ are what to enumerate.

“The dishonorable FBI burned almost 100 people to death at Waco, including 20 innocent kids.”

Never forget that several fascists HERE are perfectly satisfied with the results at Waco 22 years later.

The minute the intelligence agencies began recruiting from ‘elite’ universities they sealed their fate to become mediocre ego and politics driven ineffective agencies. Definitively.

Don’t quit there. Then they moved on to Randy Weaver and Ruby Ridge.

Can you imagine if the FBI came to your house asking for information? Only a few would comply. Shut it down. End it. Move it to Wichita.

Ruby Ridge? Someone needs to lock up whoever was AG. Whatever happened to that fat bag piper?

An acquaintance of mine brags about ammo he has. I tell him I have 3 rounds. One for the jerk at the door, another for the one running from the porch, and one for the arsehole backing down my driveway. Then they blow me and my house up with a drone. You only need 3 when it’s just you.

“.....Can you imagine if the FBI came to your house asking for information?....”
Immediately plead the 5th, then run like hell.
I’ve mention this before: we had one for a next door neighbor for awhile. He was one arrogant SOB. He made sure everybody in the neighborhood knew who he was and how bad he was. I was out in the backyard on morning with the dog. He walked up to the fence and said: “Beautiful day...wonder what the poor people are doing this morning?” Instantly, I pled the 5th Amendment, grabbed the dog and quickly hustled on into the house. He didn’t think it was funny....neither did I. They finally transferred the POS.

Yep. Sadly, most are not hip to this beltway flim flam. The establishment tosses some red meat like this and more than half the GOP base is ready to tune in for another Hannity tick tock to nowhere.

His AG? It should be perfectly clear by now that POTUS has very little to no control of the “Trump” DOJ.
