FBI: Corrupt Top To Bottom
[Comments enabled]

We're rapidly getting there folks.....

The FBI formally documented the apparent anti-Trump bias of British ex-spy Christopher Steele shortly after the November 2016 presidential election -- yet despite the red flags, continued to use his unverified dossier in multiple Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court warrant application renewals, records obtained by Fox News show.

The partially redacted documents, first obtained by Judicial Watch, also revealed that top Justice Department official Bruce Ohr maintained contact with Steele for at least six months after Steele was fired by the FBI for unauthorized media contacts in November 2016. The records further confirmed that Ohr knew of Steele's anti-Trump bias before the 2016 election.

In other words the FBI knew, factually that their FISA surveillance application was fraudulent.

They didn't think it might be, they knew it was from inception.

It has long been argued that the renewals were perjured, but this is now proof that the original application was a perjured, false document fed to a judge with the explicit intent to mislead him into believing that the information presented was true and that there was a legitimate and reasonable belief that an investigation was warranted.

We now know this was false; the FBI knew prior to the first application for a FISA surveillance warrant that Bruce Ohr knew that the dossier on which said application was largely based was politically motivated and desperate that Donald Trump lose the election.

Note that in addition a Senior State Department Official specifically pointed out that she was aware that some of the claims Steele had made were apparently false.  Likely, give that this is the State Department, I would hazard a guess that involved alleged travel claims in the dossier which the State Department would know factually never happened since entry and exit (e.g. on what flight did you arrive or are you departing, etc) are logged in State Department computers by anyone holding a US Passport.

The FBI intentionally withheld this information from the court.

That is a criminal offense.  It further, given the context, constitutes an attempt to prevent a lawful election from taking place, which quite-arguably, since FBI agents are an armed part of the US Government is a seditious conspiracy, one of the most-serious criminal acts that one can be engaged in within the United States.

Not one indictment has issued against these people.

We do not have a Constitutional government folks; it has self-declared illegitimacy under our Constitution and rule of law.  Our alleged Chief Executive and Commander in Chief, Donald Trump, has done nothing about this.  Further, and at least as outrageous, the FISA judge(s) involved, despite now knowing this, have not themselves acted on their own initiative to demand, in public, that heads roll and prisons fill.  The entire FISA court system including everyone in it down the janitor thus was and remains part of this active event along with a good chunk of Congress, including but certainly not limited to Congressman Jerry Nadler.

What are we rapidly approaching?

When in the course of human events......

We are rapidly approaching chaos. Aside from from the current bureaucrats and politicians in office, there are plenty of retired politicians, ex-bureaucrats, and politicians who changed jobs that deserve defenestration.

If those *******s did any of this with the help of British or other intelligence agencies, i.e., foreign governments, then I believe this blew right past sedition and into treason. Some of these ****ers need seats in the gas chamber.

"Corrupt Top To Bottom"

What private or government institution isn't at this point?

Abstract money and artificial interest rates underpin and "make the world go-a-round".

Regarding "Rule Of Law".... What law? What law would that be?

I see only one "law". It's as the Libertarians say, "Natural Law". And it's not "Rule of Law", either.

The only kind of "law and order" I can find throughout ALL of ****ed-up history is one very basic "Law". I call it, "Immutable Law". And it is so simple that even the most basic life forms out at my hunting camp can understand.

Click's Immutable Law: Eat Food Or Be Food...

It's the law of every swamp in the world. It's the law of my little hunting camp. It was the Law of George Washington when he cut off the toes of his runaway slaves. And it's the law of President Trump as he plays the role of CEO of the Swamp. Nothing has changed. And nothing will change.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has been "eating food" at the top of the food chain ever since J. Edgar Hoover ate there.....

Factionalization of intel, police and military is always a harbinger of doom in any nation. Competing agencies throw out their oaths first and then throw all power into a struggle for their own survival. The poor and working class are inevitably caught in the middle. "Collateral damage." Except where we're identified as a direct threat. Then we become targets.

We are rapidly approaching the eye of the storm, and if all goes the way I think it will, Karl will be lambasting most everyone because the corruption is so widespread. There are four and a half months left in this year, and I foresee much happening within that time. It will be more riveting than any television ever created. This is our country. This is our way of life that has been attacked. This is real. This will be a wake-up call for anyone not entirely brain-dead. The most difficult task will be to lay it out so people can understand.

How out of the law is the bureaucracy, built up over decades? The courts, which are often nothing but political agents and not law enforcers? Trump walked into a system that is totally corrupt and the politicians are in bed with it. Hopefully Barr is as he appears to me. Having to pick out of a system, which values the reputation of their institutions more than they value the rule of law, is a catch 22. Do you really think they would allow a man that would expose and clean up this cesspool to take over? Barr got in because they thought he was one of theirs. Lets hope otherwise. The FBI director is another gate keeper. Note how fast they discredited the guy Trump put up for DNI. I think Ratcliff would have done something, which is why they ran him off. The only way to solve this may be to break up the country.

Of course he is not doing anything, he wants to keep the same powers for himself to abuse. He is now routinely joking about a third term.

I laugh when I hear liberal friends talk about defeating him, or having to wait until after his second term to implement their Social Welfare State. My response to them is always the same:

Its cute that you think he is leaving

There is a radio pundant who keeps flapping his pie hole about the ethical FBI people who truly believe in "The Law"
Show me one FBI unwashed penis puffer who believed so strongly the leadership of the FBI is so corrupt they resign their job and seek work in another endevor.
There is NO federal law enforcement officer that should be respected. They only live for "The Law" as a end to a paycheck. You know, a *****.

This is the same tactic I use when I'm told "Most cops are good cops. Only a tiny fraction are bad."

Then why don't the "Good Cops" turn in the "Tiny Fraction" that are "Bad Cops"?

Generally agree with the thrust of your comment, but I disagree with the comparison.

*****s deserve respect because they are generally up front and honest about what they do, unlike the devious, lying scumbags that work in the DOJ, or the rest of gov't, for that matter. Another positive is that any interaction with a ***** is entirely voluntary, while we have no choice about getting screwed by gov't employees, and it costs us one hell of a lot more than I expect we'd be charged by most *****s.
