Holder Senses What’s Coming, Warns DOJ/FBI Publicly
Former Attorney General Eric Holder said Friday that the “career men and women” at the FBI and the Justice Department should “be prepared, be strong.”
To the career men & women at DOJ/FBI: your actions and integrity will be unfairly questioned.
Be prepared, be strong. Duty. Honor. Country.
He sent a similar message to members of the same agencies back in May, on the night former FBI Director James Comey was sacked.
To the career men and women at DOJ/FBI: you know what the job entails and how to do it. Be strong and unafraid. Duty. Honor. Country.
He knows what is coming, that President Trump is preparing to align Justice under his Oval Office and USAG Jeff B. Sessions.
Here is why
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley is demanding the Justice Department’s Inspector General investigate whether acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe engaged in potential conflicts of interest during the Russia election investigation.
Sen. Grassley’s (R-Iowa) request, sent Thursday night, follows new revelations that the nation’s top cop is the subject of three federal inquires ranging from sexual discrimination to political conflicts of interest, all of which were ongoing during the FBI’s probe into Russian election tampering that roiled The Trump Administration.
The inspector general needs to investigate Mr. McCabe and the “FBI’s handling of recent politically charged investigations,” Sen. Grassley wrote. The IG (inspector general) has the authority to conduct criminal or administrative investigations into FBI and Justice officials’ conduct.
Photos disclosed earlier this week showed Mr. McCabe was engaged in political campaigning for his wife, Jill McCabe, who had an unsuccessful bid for Virginia State Senate in Y 2015. The Office of US Special Counsel is now investigating Mr. McCabe’s activities in his wife’s campaign.
The photos in question were posted on social media and show him wearing T-Shirts supporting his wife at public events.
Documents also show his official FBI biography was used to set up a meeting with Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe before the Virginia Governor supported Jill McCabe’s campaign with $500,000.
The Hatch Act prohibits FBI employees from engaging “in political activity in concert with a political party, a candidate for partisan political office, or a partisan political group” but are much stricter for FBI and intelligence employees. Mccabe has said he sought ethics experts’ advice about his wife’s campaign.
At the time of the meeting with Gov. McAuliffe, Mr. McCabe was “working the FBIs investigation into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information and use of a private e-Mail server for State Department business,” Sen. Grassley’s letter states.
The Clintons are longtime friends of Terry McAuliffe.
The Chairman is also asking the IG to investigate the ongoing sexual discrimination lawsuit filed by former FBI Special Agent Robyn Gritz, which named Mr. McCabe and other FBI officials, who she accused of impeding her work within the “Bureau”.
Ms. Gritz’s complaint was supported by then former Defense Intelligence Agency director Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. Flynn, who went on to become President Trump’s National Security Advisor, was subsequently fired after highly classified information regarding a conversation he had with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak was leaked to the media (by the FBI)
General Flynn’s name was captured by federal law enforcement during his phone conversations with Amb. Kislyac, but those conversations are considered classified as part of the then ongoing Russia investigation.
Sen. Grassley said he is concerned that Mr. McCabe would preside over an investigation about Gen. Flynn when Gen Flynn was a potentially hostile witnesses against Mr. McCabe and the FBI in an unrelated case.
Now you know why Mr. Holder Tweeted his warning, he know that the FBI in in for a purging.
Have a terrific weekend.
