The FBI Swamp

Instapundit, Glenn Reynolds, brings us the news of just how tainted the FBI has become:

 

SO THE FBI SUPERVISOR WHO WAS TEXTING ABOUT HOW MUCH HE HATED TRUMP is the one who interviewed Mike Flynn. “A supervisory special agent who is now under scrutiny after being removed from Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel’s Office for alleged bias against President Trump also oversaw the bureau’s interviews of embattled former National Security advisor Michael Flynn, this reporter has learned. Flynn recently pled guilty to one-count of lying to the FBI last week. . . . Strzok was removed from his role in the Special Counsel’s Office after it was discovered he had made disparaging comments about President Trump in text messages between him and his alleged lover FBI attorney Lisa Page, according to the New York Times and Washington Post, which first reported the stories. Strzok is also under investigation by the Department of Justice Inspector General for his role in Hillary Clinton’s email server and the ongoing investigation into Russia’s election meddling. On Saturday, the House Intelligence Committee’s Chairman Devin Nunes chided the Justice Department and the FBI for not disclosing why Strzok had been removed from the Special Counsel three months ago, according to a statement given by the Chairman.”

This stinks to high heaven. But wait, there’s more involving shady FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe:

According to another source, with direct knowledge of the Jan. 24 interview, McCabe had contacted Flynn by phone directly at the White House. White House officials had spent the “earlier part of the week with the FBI overseeing training and security measures associated with their new roles so it was no surprise to Flynn that McCabe had called,” the source said.

McCabe told Flynn “some agents were heading over (to the White House) but Flynn thought it was part of the routine work the FBI had been doing and said they would be cleared at the gate,” the source said.

“It wasn’t until after they were already in (Flynn’s) office that he realized he was being formally interviewed. He didn’t have an attorney with him,” they added.

Go here to read the rest and the comments.  Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s wife was running for a Virginia Senate seat as a Democrat in 2015 and received 675,000 in campaign funds from the Clintons’ old hatchet man Terry McCauliffe, then Governor of Virginia, and the Democrat Party of Virginia.  In spite of this McCabe did not recuse himself from the Clinton e-mail investigation.  Peter Strzok, the anti-Trump FBI agent, was instrumental in the Clinton e-mail investigation and purportedly helped convince Comey that Clinton should not be indicted.  It would be fair to say that if the FBI were directly controlled by the Democrat Party, it is hard to see how these “investigations” would have been conducted much differently.
