GOP lawmakers cite new allegations of political bias in FBI

Jueves, 07 Dic, 2017

"Strzok's behavior and involvement in these two politically sensitive cases raises new concerns of inappropriate political influence in the work of the FBI", Grassley added. Facing bankruptcy if he did not agree to a plea bargain, he had little choice to stop the hemorrhaging of legal fees in order to save his family from complete financial disaster. Yes, it's good that Mueller removed Strzok when he discovered the text messages.

ABC News had reported Strzok's departure from the Russia probe in August, but without offering a reason. And the people might go to jail. Use of the original language would have been far more likely to warrant a prosecution. First, sanctions and negotiations leave much of a country's nuclear infrastructure in place, whereas military action destroys it. Rebuilding from scratch always takes longer than expanding or improving existing infrastructure, especially if military action is combined with sanctions to impede the rebuilding process.

Folks, you can't make this stuff up. Trump's supporters, profiting off ABC's own-goal, were quick to start shouting again about "fake news" from the mainstream press.

Now the controversy could taint not one, but two of the biggest federal investigations in the last year.

Adam Shaw is a Breitbart News politics reporter based in New York. "We'll also investigate the unprecedented bias against President [Donald] Trump that exists when we allow people who hate the president to participate in the investigations against him". The Supreme Court offers hope to social conservatives in the Masterpiece Cakeshop case, facilitated by Trump's appointment of Neil Gorsuch to the bench.

"Tomorrow, FBI Director Christopher Wray will testify before the Judiciary Committee, and we want answers as to how we can reform our systems and practices, so that no one gets special treatment and no one is subjected to any special bias", Gaetz said.

Strzok, it appears, had placed his imprimatur on a rapid series of sensitive FBI case investigations, having overseen the Hillary Clinton personal email server case, in which he notoriously changed then FBI Director James B. Comey, Jr.'s view of Clinton's actions as "grossly negligent" to "extremely careless".

When FBI Special Agent Robert Hanssen was revealed to have committed espionage against the United States, it didn't mean that even one other member of the bureau was guilty of Hanssen's sins, but it did require a painstaking review of all of Hanssen's activities and inputs, as all of them had to be reconsidered in light of his treasonous behavior.

There's more. The recent revelations concerning sexual harassment and abuse have somehow worked to Trump's advantage despite his own sordid history and the allegations against him.

It is easy to understand why the FBI is frustrated. He made these arguments in multiple appearances before Congress and every time he ventured near an open microphone.

Jeffrey Clair, a Justice Department civil division appellate attorney, thanked Yates and wrote: "I've been in civil/appellate for 30 years and have never seen an administration with such contempt for democratic values and the rule of law". Yes, there were some progressive groups that faced scrutiny, but the sheer scale of the attack on conservative groups was unprecedented.

Trump doubled-down, calling the probe "phony and dishonest".
