Things Just Keep Getting Worse and Worse For The FBI in Light of IG Report

Published

on

The Department of Justice Inspector General report that was released on Thursday continues to drop bombs on the FBI, exposing massive amounts of corruption, shady dealings, and pure incompetence in the federal branch of law enforcement.

Just to give you some context, former FBI Director James Comey was discovered to have used a private email server to conduct FBI business. This was the same guy investigating Hillary Clinton for doing the same thing during her time as secretary of state.  And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The report contains lots and lots more damaging material.

Folks working for the bureau probably didn’t think things could really get a whole lot worse, it now turns out that journalists and agents were exchanging gifts and doing so might be a federal crime.

A bombshell inspector general report released Thursday revealed that several FBI employees improperly received gifts from reporters, in connection with possible leaks of sensitive information.

Although public details of these exchanges are scant, they could constitute prosecutable violations of federal gift-giving rules.

The gifts in question included “tickets to sporting events, golfing outings, drinks and meals, and admittance to nonpublic social events.”

“We will separately report on those investigations as they are concluded, consistent with the Inspector General Act, other applicable federal statutes, and OIG policy,” the report reads.

Gifting rules for executive branch officials are strict and exacting. The U.S. Office of Government Ethics provides that “executive branch employees may not solicit or accept gifts that are given because of their official positions or that come from certain interested sources (‘prohibited sources’).”

The rules define a prohibited source as a person who:

Is seeking official action by, is doing business or seeking to do business with, or is regulated by the employee’s agency; or

Has interests that may be substantially affected by performance or nonperformance of the employee’s official duties.

Unauthorized contact with media personnel can actually result in the individuals involved in the activity being reassigned, suspended, or even fired.

And that’s in the non-criminal cases.

It’s disappointing to see how much personal politics has infected the realm of law enforcement, especially at the federal level, when these individuals are supposed to be upholding the law and approaching investigations with objectivity.

Sad.

Hillary Clinton Feeling the ‘Urge’ to Run for POTUS, & Defeat President Trump In November

Trump would welcome it…

Why is Hollywood and the media still so in love with Hillary Clinton? Sure, okay, Clinton went from first lady of Arkansas to first lady of the United States to senator to secretary of state to presidential nominee. From that standpoint, she has lived a pretty amazing life. But that’s not why celebrities and the MSM cares for her. They just have a sick obsession for anybody who hates Trump. After all of Clinton’s lies and deception, you’d think they’d finally move on. But no. From The Hill: Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a recent interview that she feels “the urge” to beat President Trump in the coming election, and pledged to everything she can to “help elect the Democratic nominee” this year. Clinton’s comments came in response to a question she was asked in an interview with Variety at the Sundance Film Festival, where her docu-series “Hillary” is appearing. During the interview, which was published on Tuesday, a reporter asked Clinton if she ever feels “the urge to think: ‘I could beat Donald Trump if I were running.’” Clinton bellowed, “Yeah. I certainly feel the urge because I feel the 2016 election was a really odd time and an odd outcome.” She screeched, “And the more we learn, the more that seems to be the case. But I’m going to support the people who are running now and do everything I can to help elect the Democratic nominee.” Reactions: https://twitter.com/ArchieBunker19/status/1222221464226750469?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1222221464226750469&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsarahd-313035%2F2020%2F01%2F28%2Fhillary-clinton-certainly-feels-the-urge-to-run-against-donald-trump-in-2020-because-it-was-totally-odd-that-she-lost-in-2016-video%2F https://twitter.com/back_ttys/status/1222228028845182977?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1222228028845182977&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsarahd-313035%2F2020%2F01%2F28%2Fhillary-clinton-certainly-feels-the-urge-to-run-against-donald-trump-in-2020-because-it-was-totally-odd-that-she-lost-in-2016-video%2F https://twitter.com/back_ttys/status/1222223088684818432?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1222223088684818432&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fsarahd-313035%2F2020%2F01%2F28%2Fhillary-clinton-certainly-feels-the-urge-to-run-against-donald-trump-in-2020-because-it-was-totally-odd-that-she-lost-in-2016-video%2F On James Corden’s late night program, the former First Lady ripped into the president’s personal attorney like she got paid to do it.

Millions of Dollars From Joe Biden’s 2008 Campaign Went Directly to His Sister’s Consulting Firm

Seems like Biden helped out a number of family members financially…

It would seem that Joe Biden used his power as vice president to make many people in his family very, very wealthy. That is what malfeasance and true corruption really looks like, in case Democrats were still wondering. Imagine if Donald Trump Jr. was put on the board of a foreign gas company and made millions. Picture Ivanka Trump funneling money from her father’s campaign to her own clothing line. Would the media care then? Would their ears prick up? Here’s the latest on Joe, via Breitbart: Valerie Biden Owens, the sister of former vice president Joe Biden (D), who served as the campaign manager for his past presidential campaigns, directed $2.5 million from “Citizens for Biden” and “Biden for President Inc.” to her own consulting firm during her brother’s 2008 presidential bid alone, Breitbart senior contributor and Government Accountability Institute (GAI) President Peter Schweizer’s investigative blockbuster Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite reveals. Biden’s political tenure, as Schweizer’s book extensively details, has largely remained a complicated family affair, resulting in little-known financial benefits for not just his son Hunter Biden, but for his sister Valerie. Biden must not realize that the internet is forever. He doesn’t understand that words he has said on camera years ago will come back to haunt him. Recently, Joe pretty much owned himself when he was caught in a pretty damning lie. His smug attitude didn’t help matters, either. The problem here is that most of America will never see this story unless President Trump gives it a retweet. After all, Joe has the MSM in his back pocket, as does every liberal in America. From Fox News: DUBUQUE, Iowa — Joe Biden is the only 2020 presidential candidate who was in the White House Situation Room as Navy SEALs…
