According to the Daily Caller, several FBI agents want congressional subpoenas to testify about the agency’s problems, and serious conflicts of interest, resulting from the time of Barack Obama’s tenure, which has lingered on into Donald Trump’s presidency.
The sources within the FBI claim there’s a demand to prosecute former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, as well as stating that the bureau has become too politicized. The subpoenas are wanted because the FBI agents require Congress to pay for their legal fees, and also protects them from any agency retribution.
Indeed, literally hundreds of FBI agents want Congress to subpoena them so that they can reveal the problems caused by former FBI Director James Comey, and his deputy Andrew McCabe, under Barack Obama.
Federal prosecutor Joe DiGenova told the Daily Caller, “There are agents all over this country who love the bureau and are sickened by [James] Comey’s behavior and [Andrew] McCabe and [Eric] Holder and [Loretta] Lynch and the thugs like [John] Brennan–who despise the fact that the bureau was used as a tool of political intelligence by the Obama administration thugs. They are just waiting to come forward and testify.”
Before the release of the Department of Justice (DOJ) inspector general report on how the FBI handled the Clinton email investigation, DiGenova, former Trump official, had kept in touch with rank and file FBI agents and a counter intelligence consultant that conducted an interview with an active special agent of the FBI’s Washington Field Office (WFO).
These agents prefer a subpoena instead of becoming an official government whistleblower, since they fear political and professional backlash. DiGenova explained as follows: “When you are subpoenaed, Congress then pays… for your legal counsel and the subpoena protects [the agent] from any organizational retaliation…. they are on their own as whistleblowers, they get no legal protection and there will be organizational retaliation against them.”
Joe DiGenova added, “I don’t blame them. I don’t blame the agents one bit. I think that the FBI is in a freefall. James Comey has destroyed the institution he claims to love. And it is beyond a doubt that it is going to take a decade to restore public confidence because of Comey and Clapper and Brennan and Obama and Lynch.”
The FBI agents are upset about the current FBI predicament, and desperately want action from the Department of Justice, with DiGenova stating, “Every special agent I have spoken to in the Washington Field Office wants to see McCabe prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. They feel the same way about Comey.”
“The administrations are so politicized that any time a Special Agent comes forward as a whistleblower, they can expect to be thrown under the bus by leadership. Go against the Muslim Brotherhood, you’re crushed. Go against the Clinton’s, you’re crushed. The FBI has long been politicized to the detriment of national security and law enforcement.”
“Activity that Congress is investigating is being stonewalled by leadership and rank-and-file FBI employees in the periphery are just doing their jobs. All Congress needs to do is subpoena involved personnel and they will tell you what they know. These are honest people. Leadership cannot stop anyone from responding to a subpoena. Those subpoenaed also get legal counsel provided by the government to represent them.”
DiGenova explained that he knows that the problems in the FBI go beyond just James Comey and Andrew McCabe, stating, “They know that it wasn’t just Comey and McCabe in this case. That’s too narrow a net to cast over these guys. There’s a much broader corruption that seeped into the seventh floor at the bureau.”
“They ruined the credibility of the bureau and the technical ability of the bureau, so systemically, over the past several years, they’re worried about their organizational reputation and their professional careers.”
“They go to court and they’re just laughed at.” Joe DiGenova explained.
Time Magazine has discovered that the FBI has struggled with convictions for several years now, after they send cases to the DOJ for prosecution. In less than half the cases, the FBI sent to the DOJ, the conviction rate was only 47% in 2017, which is far lower than the average 72% of all other government agencies.
Joe DiGenova believes it is time for Congress to issue subpoenas to FBI agents willing to speak out, with the House and Senate Judiciary Committee are able to issue these subpoenas. To this, he said “Either one of those [committees] would be fine. I’m sure the committees could hold hearings in a New York minute.”
Lastly, DiGenova stated, “I can assure you I’ve been approached by agents who want to be subpoenaed for the same reason the guys in the field,” adding, “All over this country there are agents but the big ones, the ones that matter, New York–Washington, I can assure you I’ve spoken with agents who want to come forward.”
So there you have it! It seems like even after James Comey and Andrew McCabe have been fired from the FBI, their actions and obstruction have not been forgotten by any means, and this suggests a major conflict of interest in their practice whilst still in the agency. Naturally, some of this corruption still lingers within the FBI, which has angered many special agents, who are now wishing to speak out and go on record about these longstanding issues.
We presume it is only a matter of time, before the Clinton email investigation gets a proper new investigation, without corrupt agents at the helm of it, in turn, which protected members of the cabal, so to speak.
Seemingly, the years of Barack Obama have lingered on in the FBI, with corruption and major conflicts of interest being the two huge factors, that the good FBI agents really wish to speak out about, which could then open the floodgates for numerous prosecutions of those that didn’t serve to their potential or even abided by the law.
Evidence against Andrew McCabe, James Comey and even Barack Obama’s involvements are reportedly damning for all those concerned. Let’s watch this space as it slowly develops into something massive in the next few months.
