Christopher Wray — Nothing to see here

The IG report is out and the issue of intent is on the table again. When Wray says that the IG didn’t find any political bias, he’s basically saying that nothing extraordinary happened, that nobody intended to do anything wrong. Why? Because they didn’t operate from bias. So, all of these minor missteps were not intended, they were inadvertent but always going against the president or for Hillary. Every one of the unintentional mistakes. Here’s ABC:

“[It’s] important to note what the Inspector General did not find,” Wray told reporters inside the FBI, marking one of the first times he’s taken questions from media representatives since becoming the agency’s director. “This report did not find any evidence of political bias or improper considerations actually impacting the investigation under review,” namely the FBI’s probe of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.

Yet it seems like they are intentional to me — these people all did these things using very non-standard methods —  and exculpatory methods for Hillary — rather than how Mueller is acting against Trump and how Comey acted against Martha Stewart and how Patrick Fitzgerald acted against Scooter Libby. These mistakes were all intentional and they were all biased. And the IG is a liar to say otherwise.

But, the mistakes that were made were going to be addressed with new training. The report is hours old and he’s already started to fix things — so that’s good to know. And what’s something he mentioned that they are going to do:

“There are some sobering lessons in there. We’re going to learn those lessons,” including “the importance of trying to make sure that we avoid even the appearance of bias in all of our work,” Wray vowed. “Objectivity and the appearance of objectivity matter.”

Why is bias being brought up now? That’s the one mistake that wasn’t made according to the IG. Why? Because Wray knows that this is a lie and he’s so happy that the IG sold out that he made this big mistake. This is what is known as a “tell” at the poker table.

  1. It is spin. “I’m am shocked to find gambling here.” Or “All these people were demoted and fired to spend more time with their families.” Or “A mistake was made but it is not a conspiracy but a coincidence that this happened. Our investigators are pro wrestling refs part time so they call things as they don’t see them.”

    But, there is bias reported in the IQ report.

    Yes, I see that he was limiting it to just the Hillary email server, wasn’t he? Thanks for the correction.

    Do you think that ABC news and the others’ will make that clear?

    Yes, and like recently with another blog site shutting down a thread recently — it was just a mistake. No reason to go into how that happened — it’s a long complicated story and we don’t have time for that.

    Also, in reading the article again — note that IG mentions bias but Wray weasel words his triumphalist remark.

    A: We had an itsy bitsy mistake in surgery.

    B: How bad, doctor? Will he be able to walk again?

    A: Except for not breathing the patient looks in great shape. The good news is no further treatment is needed. I think rest is called for at this time. Walking could cause respiratory problems.

  6. We have to learn from the Left. They can make a “binders full of women” an issue. There is more than that here.

    The operation was a success but the patient died.

    The patient decided to be uncooperative.

  9. Hillary broke the law and State Department rules.

    Hillary’s minions lied and covered for her.  They were complicit in her subterfuge.

    Obama lied about using the homebrew e-mail server.

    Loretta Lynch covered for Hillary.

    Comey lied and covered for Hillary.

    Strzok and Paige lied and conspired to cover for Hillary.

    The New York Times lied and covered for Hillary.

    I don’t think I am even to the halfway mark in developing this list.

  10. Don’t worry, Bubba, they’re chastened and they’re gonna get right on this. They take this criticism to heart and they will fix it all. No need to worry — they got it.

  11. What exactly would look like political bias to them? Seeing them sign documents that say “All hail to the Democratic Party and the destruction of Republicans”?  Good god, what a joke.

  12. I asked the question of how the summary could vary so widely from the contents of the report (and the summary seems to be what Wray is using to justify his BS), and someone who has been involved in these kinds of reports before said that the summary is often written or edited by higher ups and not the person compiling the report itself. So the disconnect may be in the fact that Horowitz didn’t write it, or at least that the final summary is not what he submitted. That makes a lot more sense than 500 pages detailing bias and a summary pretending there’s nothing to see.

    I heard the president echo this same point that several have made here and in other posts — this seems so much like the Comey excuse making press conference where he lays out a list of obvious crimes and then sums it up with that he didn’t recommend she be indicted. It was truly breathtaking that day two years ago when Comey did that performance art pretense of a serious lawman.
