Hugh Hewitt: A special counsel should probe FBI, Justice Dept.

07 Diciembre 2017

Israel's bombing of Iraq's nuclear reactor, for instance, bought just enough time for Iraq to make a critical mistake nobody could have foreseen: the invasion of Kuwait in 1990, which led to the Gulf War and America's subsequent imposition of an intrusive and effective nuclear inspection regime. He was also assigned to the Mueller probe into Russian collusion, but was removed after it was found he had sent anti-Trump texts to a woman with whom he was having an extramarital affair.

Peter Carr, the spokesman, said that Page had completed a brief detail to Mueller's team and had returned to the FBI "weeks before" the special counsel's office was notified of the text messages.

And it's obvious that the media craves something really big.

Hire 17 prosecutors and give them a blank check for funding, as the DOJ has done for Mueller, and numerous injustices will inevitably follow.

Strzok also was one of the two agents who would go on to interview Flynn during the Russia probe.

"We find ourselves under the microscope each and every day - and rightfully so".

After the Clinton investigation concluded, Strzok signed the documents opening the investigation into Russian election interference and actually helped interview former national-security adviser Michael Flynn.

This is the reason that bureau bosses can't handle criminal case cooperators, or informants or counterintelligence case foreign assets.

"When the FBI first learned of the allegations, the employees involved were immediately reassigned, consistent with practices involving employee matters", the FBI declared. But his mere presence hurts public confidence in the FBI, and it does so in a way that further illustrates a persistent and enduring national problem: America's permanent bureaucracy is unacceptably partisan. A nuclear Iran simply isn't the existential threat to America that it is to Israel. "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". Time will tell, but it doesn't look good for the supposedly 'non-partisan' Mueller investigative team.

Recently released emails obtained from FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe show him referring to the Clinton email investigation as "special" in nature.

Strzok conducted many of the biggest interviews in both of the cases, though the outcomes have been starkly different. To get to the truth, and restore confidence in federal law enforcement, better a special counsel to conduct the inquiry, bring any necessary charges and make a report - someone without ties to the president or his opponents.

Had Mills been working for Trump, the same number would have been run on Mills as on Flynn and Papadopoulos. To try and sweep those activities under the rug would be worse.

News of potential political tainting in recent high-profile investigations has left the FBI battered, with the president on Sunday going so far as to tweet that its reputation was in "tatters" and the "worst in history". It's also the emergence of groupthink. Both the Clinton and Trump investigations were tainted by blatant partisanship.

DeSantis argued the example highlights the politicization of the FBI. He has pleaded not guilty to charges of money laundering and lobbying violations related to his work for Viktor F. Yanukovych, the former Ukrainian president.
