FBI Bias, Mendacity, and Corruption

By Rick Reiss

Disgraced FBI agent Peter Strzok's Congressional testimony revealed inherent bias, mendacity, and corruption within the FBI's Counter-Intelligence Division.

Strzok proclaimed that the vulgar and partisan messages with his then FBI-mistress Lisa Page via FBI smartphones could never create biased investigations. Strzok testified, "And the suggestion that I in some dark chamber somewhere in the FBI would somehow cast aside all of these procedures, all of these safeguards, and somehow be able to do this is astounding to me. It simply couldn't happen."

Yet Strzok conveniently omits that these "safeguards" included the now fired former FBI Director James Comey, the now fired Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, the demoted DOJ official Bruce Ohr, and of course, the now resigned FBI girlfriend-attorney Lisa Paige. These people were the checks and balances Strzok alluded to and this all suggests something rotten in the Counter-Intelligence Division.

Such unsavory biases and rigged investigations are not new. The FBI has a well known history of “black bag” jobs and COINTELPRO investigations that were highly political and inherently unconstitutional. Now these FBI bureaucrats have been caught acting as a virtual legal defense service for the Hillary Clinton team and something more akin to a Spanish Inquisition to the Donald Trump team.

Since the FBI and the DOJ refuse to come clean, then they no longer deserve the honor of running America’s counter-intelligence programs. The function of counter-intelligence should be transferred over to the Department of Homeland Security as soon as possible.
