Anybody else feeling the irony?

The underlying investigation was about Hillary’s use of private email/phones instead of government email/phones to hide her corrupt activity.

The FBI’s spin on the OIG report is effectively that they have to train their agents to use private email/phones instead of government email/phones to better hide their corrupt activity.

  1. As I told @mjbubba, don’t worry Wray has this under control. He’s got it. So don’t worry. He’ll straighten all this out now that we all know that essentially 37,000 agents aren’t politically biased. Just a few of them (that we know of for sure) and it is too bad that those identified were the ones at the very top. But, because FBI agents are cowboys and not influenced by their superiors and just all-American types that we don’t need to worry about anything.

  2. I lost all respect for Wray, despite knowing he has a crappy job of inheriting this bag of waste of in this organization.

    When the public needs reassuring, it needs straight talk, not org-speak.

    “Training” is used to punish the innocent with powerpoints and inform the guilty that getting caught like this is bad for their bosses job security.

    I predict that never again will an FBI agent put such thoughts in text messages. Problem solved. Do not get caught.

    I suggest moving FBI HQ to Guam.

    How about moving it to Detroit? That would be more interesting.

  4. I keep telling you guys that the only thing that is going to give you the results you want is going to be for Congress to statutorily make changes to these organizations. Now what do you all think the odds of that happening are? Yeah, probably less than zero. This “intelligence” community of ours needs to be smashed in a million pieces, but it ain’t gonna happen. I wouldn’t waste your time hoping that the creatures in the swamp are going to start killing off the creatures in the swamp. Enjoy your lives, have fun, worship God, and forget all of this stupid stuff. Hell, I am leaning very seriously toward ceasing to vote. It’s a fools errand.

  5. This “intelligence” community of ours needs to be smashed in a million pieces, but it ain’t gonna happen.

    I have the same sort of  gut feeling about all this, but… never say never.

    To uncork a couple of my favorite cliches, things work until they don’t, and what can’t go on forever will end.

    Our so-called intelligence community is a miserable, expensive failure. It plainly isn’t doing its job. But its real problem isn’t its endless incompetence. It’s that it has been found out- and now it has to defend itself and its conduct to the electorate.

    It plainly isn’t up to to this challenge, either.

  6. Can anyone say anymore with a straight face that we live in a representative republic where government serves the people and secures their rights? We are way beyond irony. Disgust is where I am at. We are also beyond legislative or political remedies. As it took a revolution to found this nation, only a revolution could restore it.

    No.  HQ needs to stay in Washington.

    The way to drain this swamp is to take the roster from the offices in Washington, D.C., and randomly match them with staff positions from the 56 field offices.  Then make all the agents and managers switch positions.  Push the Swamp Creatures of Washington out to the field offices and put them to useful work breaking drug gangs and phony charities.  Bring a new crew in from the 56 field offices and put them to work investigating the Swamp Creatures of Washington, beginning with their predecessors.

    This works. Maybe not totally but to a degree. IRS used this approach once upon a time. I doubt they use it now.

    Welcome to the site, Bob Thompson! I usually tell new members to watch out for Larry Koler but I decided not to do that any more.

    I still say we should move the government agencies to the places that their policies have destroyed like Detroit.
