Its Over Folks
Karl Denninger

America, that is.

There is one last chance to save it: The FBI and DOJ must be disbanded, everyone working for it fired with no pensions, no benefits, no nothing, and if we need the functions of either agency and/or DHS they must be reconstituted with hard criminal penalties for anything that even smells like this in the future.

If not, well, we're done.

We're done because it is now seven years after this injustice occurred, it was not minor, it was not due to "oversight" or "accident" and by the most-charitable read the reason it happened is political bias through the entire organization from the top down leaving nobody to challenge it.

Further, knowing this the Democrat party political campaign of the time (Hillary's) deliberately suborned the acts of the FBI and instead of being told to shove it and being publicly outed for their attempt they got what they wanted including the personal and financial destruction of several people.  huge number of members of Congress then went on to use their speech and debate clause to slander people left, right and center all based on these lies.  Current law and the Constitution provide us no means of punishment of said members of Congress due to that speech and debate clause but no such protection exists for the principals nor the FBI personnel involved.

Let me just cite this:

Given the foregoing, and viewing the facts in a light most favorable to the Crossfire Hurricane investigators, it seems highly likely that, at a minimum, confirmation bias played a significant role in the FBI's acceptance of extraordinarily serious allegations derived from uncorroborated information that had not been subjected to the typical exacting analysis employed by the FBI and other members of the Intelligence Community. In short, it is the Office's assessment that the FBI discounted or willfully ignored material information that did not support the narrative of a collusive relationship between Trump and Russia. Similarly, the FBI Inspection Division Report says that the investigators "repeatedly ignore[d] or explain[ed] away evidence contrary to the theory the Trump campaign ... had conspired with Russia .... It appeared that ... there was a pattern of assuming nefarious intent." 1749 An objective and honest assessment of these strands of information should have caused the FBI to question not only the predication for Crossfire Hurricane, but also to reflect on whether the FBI was being manipulated for political or other purposes. Unfortunately, it did not.

That's the most-charitable read.

I decline to provide that given the repeated and amplified abuse out of the Democrat Party, including from Hillary, Schiff and others particularly considering that exactly zero of said persons have apologized or in any other way backed off from their knowing lies.

Folks the capacity to do this on a forward basis must be destroyed.  This is not optional.  No republic can continue to exist when it becomes trivially easy for one political faction or another to deliberately weaponize law enforcement to go after disfavored individuals based on their political affiliation, inventing not just domestic events but claimed collusion with foreign powers that never occurred.

Indeed it is arguable that these very same people were in fact doing what they accused Trump of, but with Ukraine and China instead of Russia -- and there is now developing hard evidence of the money flows involved in same.  The extent to which they reached into policy during the Obama years and to which it influenced or even controlled the policies of the administration during the pandemic, an outbreak that we have every reason to believe sourced from that very same China, is not yet known.

There are over 1 million dead Americans over the last three years as a direct and indirect consequence and sixty million, roughly, children who got screwed in whole or part out of their education during those three years.  Never mind all the other people who got screwed and all of the inflation which we have and will continue to suffer under.

If that's not enough just this last evening it was reported that the IRS, at DOJ instruction, removed the entire team investigating Hunter's tax matters in quite-clear retaliation for the whistle-blower inside the IRS -- a clear violation of federal law and yet another demonstration of said corruption.  Coming on the back of the Durham report it is clear that the entire DOJ and FBI cannotbe "redeemed" or "reformed."  The myriad claims that the DOJ and FBI have "learned" and "reformed" as a result of what happened with Crossfire Hurricane are not only laughable -- they're criminally insane.

This cannot stand nor go without redress.
