Robert Mueller – From the Inside….

There’s a vastly different opinion amid some who review the action of Rod Rosenstein and Robert Mueller.  CTH has noted a common corrupt theme amid the DOJ and FBI that crosses both the Obama and Trump administrations: A priority to preserve the institution; regardless of how corrupt the institution is; and regardless of how much collateral damage those system administrators will create in their effort toward that preservation goal.

Within the larger discussion, sometimes comments hit the proverbial nail. I think this one does exactly that:

RTLW – “Not ALL FBI Agents are moral pariahs. 60% are good American patriots who joined the Agency in good faith expecting to serve their Country and put bad people behind bars.

The other 40% are Peter Strozk and Lisa Page. ALL of FBI HQ is populated by the Strozk/Page types. Recruitment of this type of Agent started under Mueller and continued under Comey. Mueller drove out all of the old school “Brick Agents” shortly after he became Director.

Mueller implemented an “up or out” policy where all SSAs were required to move to DC and do Headquarters time or lose their GS 14 pay grade. This policy change by Mueller purposely targeted the most senior Agents in the FBI who had finally earned the right to move their family to a medium sized office in fly over country, had teenage kids and were living a comfortable life.

Mueller knew these Agents would not uproot their families and move to DC. Hundreds of these senior Agents immediately retired. Literally thousands of years of investigative experience left the FBI overnight.

This is exactly what Mueller wanted. These were the men and women who would have called Mueller out when he started transforming the FBI from a criminal investigative organization into a domestic intelligence organization (it is illegal to collect intelligence on American citizens).

Mueller immediately began filling the ranks with Strozk/Page types. The FBI does extensive psychological screening of applicants. Stroke and Page are self interested, well-educated cowards whose only motivation is their own promotion and paycheck. In other words they are people who will be blindly loyal to the Agency and will obey any order no matter how un-Constitutional or unlawful. This is the psychological profile that Mueller and Comey actively recruited and hired.

On the flip-side, combat veterans, patriots, have been denied employment by the FBI at all costs (they all mysteriously fail the polygraph and background check).

The morale of the good Agents is at rock bottom. Everyone is retiring as soon as they are eligible. Younger Agents are leaving as soon as they can find another line of work. They are ashamed of the badge.

It is time to abolish the FBI. Make the 56 FBI field offices the Investigative Branch of DHS. Fire everyone in the FBI and make them re-apply for their job under new standards. President Trump can remodel FBIHQ into a hotel. Or better yet, burn it to the ground and salt the earth. Hang everyone on the 7th floor for treason.” (link)

    100% what happened as recapped in the article. I was around at the time when potential agents from 92 to 99 found out – usually military – from me ‘Tough break. You are the best of the best but you have not been added to this 18 week course at Quantico have you considered the Postal Inspector office and then a lateral into the Bureau?’

    These postal inspectors became very valuable when internet kiddie porn investigation became a Bureau function. SO whomever you have that wasn’t forced to DC is part of this group and/or under covers who DC was to afraid to bring to roost. Trust me…those folks ARE MAD.

    What to add to the description of the Mueller hiring process…

    No doubt all new recruits really hate the bad guys…but unfortunately…the POLICY over who was a bad guy started to be made within the DOJ…NOT THEIR FUNCITON and no one in the WH or Congress put a stop to it.

      After reading the article I found it odd that under (supposedly) Mueller’s new direction so many ex-mil FBI recruits didn’t make it. Given the MSM’s enthusiasm for pointing out Mueller’s Marine service in VN one would think Mueller would reach out to his brothers in arms and crank up the mil preference.

      So was there something in mueller’s personal hiring policy that weighed against the ex-mil or was he carrying out someone else’s policy? I can’t believe this happened in a vacuum, or that the FBI/CIA were the only Fed agencies with this result.

      During the hearings we also learned that an FBI agent also has to be promoted or leave in 5 years, a stupid rule to guarantee less experienced agents and wiser heads. Young agents who are still gun-ho to build a career, without much loyalty to the agency yet, unable to see irregularities when they occur, etc.

      I don’t like the idea of putting everything into DHS, though. How are we able to guarantee the continued loyalty to America of the DHS? They have tremendous power already. They are discussing merging the CIA with the NSA also…the NSA that has spied on every single American and, up until General Rogers took over, every politician and probably every judge. NSA that has ALL records of everything that the CIA or FBI has and lots more besides.

      We can slowly change and save the FBI with new heads, as is already happening. The 40% is no longer in the top leadership positions. But that is until the next Obama?

      The CIA is in even worse shape than the FBI. The CIA isn’t even salvageable. JFK talked about doing away with the CIA, and then he was assassinated.

      Let’s face it: A constitutional republic is only workable when both the people and the leadership are moral. And, when you add secrecy to that power, it is not going to be without corruption. I don’t know what the answer is to that.

      I had to laugh when reporters asked Trump at the summit with Putin if he trusted the Russians more than his own intelligence agencies. OF COURSE Trump trusts the Russians more than the Comeys, Rosensteins, Brennans, etc…why wouldn’t he? That’s why he surrounds himself with military intelligence. I laughed, but it was sad.

    I was in law enforcement for many years. The transition from dedicated street cop and investigator to people who were willing to sell their soul in hell for promotion or to curry favor for themselves to their seniors started in the 1980s. Many people who have come into law enforcement had no interest or even personal skills for the vocation. Women were brought in just because they were women. Many of the “new” breed care nothing except for the pay and benefits, and will do whatever is necessary for the next promotion. The whole system is skewed to eliminate those who may be independent thinkers or even conservative in their views. The whole law enforcement community has seen a metamorphose to the left. I was appalled by the last flier from my agency which recommended and supported every extreme leftist candidate on the ballot. These cops know that the establishment politicians are more willing to give them raises if they tow the party line. And so it goes. Anyone who thinks that the law enforcement community today is cut from the same cloth as the conservative dedicated officers and agents of the past are just fooling themselves. This leftist leaning ideology is insured and very controlled during the hiring process and during the training process. Make no mistake, a leftist police state is definitely here and has become overwhelmingly supportive of the Socialist controlled state. It’s only going to get worse.

    Had this conversation with two retired officers today at the gym…….

      Law enforcement was weaponized by Dyncorp and Blackwater. You had no clue as they started top down and inserted their guys into position. Then they start giving say police agencies military equipment. Finally they put in processes to weed out any good people so they are left with a big ole mercenary group. This is their whole company business model. You had no clue so you didn’t even know to fight it. Time to unwind it. Take Sheriff Israel as example of this and his merry band of misfits in The Parkland Shooting. Ask yourself this how many police agencies do you know have military grade equipment these days…

      DITTO Curt:
      After over 26 years as a military cop and six more as a civilian police chief I have many experiences with the FBI under my belt. Even after attending the FBI National Academy my opinion of the Bureau and the field agents has never changed over the years. The term most often heard around police squad rooms and detective bureaus to characterize the typical FBI field agent was in my time; “PFC’s (private first class) in business suits!” The reason for that label has to do with the typical agent’s inability to act. In my experience most often the field agents would never commit to any action without first consulting headquarters. Or worst of all, they would delay taking a case until we could provide them solid leads leading to a positive outcome. Bottom line, nothing I hear these days surprises me. Not even J. Comey is the worst character I have encountered carrying a FBI badge. Bottom line, in all of my years of service in law enforcement/public safety I have only encountered two FBI agents I would trust on my left flank. For you civilians that means I would not trust the rest of them enough to let them clean the latrine!

      My first experience with the FBI (and the ATF, DEA, and U.S. Marshal Service for that matter) came in January, 1972. Though new to the Military Police Corps I was selected as an instructor/advisor in the Dissent and Disorder Management Group, Directorate of Military Support (DOMS). One of the group’s principal duties was to conduct the Civil Disobedience Orientation Course (better known as SEADOC in the law enforcement community). The program was established as part of the Safe Streets Act of 1968 (also known as the Omnibus Crime Bill) with its primary function to provide civil disobedience training/advice to the U.S. military, the American civilian law enforcement community, and police/military personnel of allied nations. My specific role due to my experience as a combat arms officer (six years enlisted/four years commissioned in armor and infantry units) was teaching/advising in the area of neutralization of special threats (snipers, bombs, etc..).

      By the second session of the SEADOC course and one joint counter-terrorism exercise, it became very apparent that the attitude of the FBI (especially that displayed by senior personnel in the headquarters and down to the senior agents in charge [SAC] of many local offices) in general toward the civilian population and specifically the FBI’s standing among the law enforcement community was one of “undue superiority”.

      By the time Mr. Hoover died of a heart attack (on May 2, 1972) the opinions my fellow instructors had been proven valid (at least in my eyes). Theirs and my assessment of the collective FBI “personality/attitude” (if you will) simply stated was; A high level of arrogance supplemented by an even higher level of ignorance! Assume nearly anyone/everyone with a high school education knows that, Arrogance + Ignorance = Stupidity!

      Some of us law enforcement guys were hoping with the death of that little control freak Hoover that better days were surely ahead. Operational command of the Bureau passed to Associate Director Clyde Tolson for less than a full day with Mr. Nixon appointing L. Patrick Gray as Acting Director on May 3, 1972. Mr. Gray (like so many directors since Mr. Hoover’s death) had virtually no FBI experience. He was just another lawyer/staff weenie from the Justice Department. Mr. W. Mark Felt stayed on as one of the primary Associate Directors, but we all know what Mark spent most of his time doing the rest of his tenure?

      Three years later while serving as Provost Marshal of the Panama/Canal Zone Pacific Area and later as Commander of the Panama/Canal Zone U.S. Army Criminal Investigation elements, I had three more years to gain more experience with the rank and file as well as the brass at FBI headquarters. Without getting into any classified areas, I will just state my opinion of the FBI in a few carefully chosen adjectives. How about; incompetent, and/or ignorant, and/or timid, and/or worst of all deceptive (no not deceptive, dishonest)? Two years after leaving Panama and entering the counter-terrorism arena, the FBI and their buddies at the CIA objected on numerous occasions to some of my group’s assessments and/or proposed strategies/tactics.

      Upon leaving the military I was so dumb (and a gluten for a punishment) that I took a civilian police chief position. Shortly after arriving in the community I had my chief investigator arrange a late night meeting of the town’s known drug dealers (not sure why, but five guys actually showed up. Note: I primarily tasked the investigator to call the meeting to test him. Think he was as surprised as I was at the turn out). At that meeting I simply stated what standards of behavior I expected of all folks in their line of work within the confines of the community. One of the younger fellows displayed somewhat of a level of arrogance (I suspect his attitude was related to the fact that he sampled his own products!).

      Within two weeks of the meeting the young, arrogant, self-professed drug dealer managed to get run over by a freight train about two hundred yards out of my jurisdiction. Though I sent a unit to assist the sheriff, I did not get involved in the incident in any manner. Within a matter of hours the word was on the street that myself and/or some of my cops had arranged for the train and the drug dealer to meet. When the sheriff’s investigator showed up I had no comment and only the officer responding to the scene rendered a statement. When a lone FBI agent showed up and introduced himself and started talking I held my hand up and said; “No jurisdiction, no probable cause, no warrant, no comment, let’s go to lunch.” He smiled, folded his notebook, and we went to lunch (the second smartest FBI agent I ever encountered).

      Just one old, not too smart, soldier/cop’s two cents.

      PS By the way all of you civilians need to know something about career soldiers and cops. There are only too requirements to be a soldier and/or cop in America. One has to be smart enough to do the work and dumb enough to take the job. Also, being a little bit loco make the career choice a little more tolerable.

      The leftist mindset (I will not say Liberal, because that’s far and away not the same thing though a somewhat flexible and contextualized sense of morality is the common thread between the two) is a very troubling thing when it comes to law enforcement and especially the use of deadly force.

      I had a co-worker whose family was almost entirely government employees. For whatever reason he didn’t make the cut but he tends to thing of government employee status as the very definition of success.

      He told me a story about an uncle who moved from one state police job to another — from somewhere far north-eastern to southern Virginia. Virginia is an open carry state. If it’s not concealed, you can carry it in public at the age of 18. Apparently, this uncle was not aware of this fact and when he encountered this legally protected citizen, weapons were drawn against this guy and all manner of terror ensued. Fortunately, nothing permanent happened to the victim in all of this (no injuries, no death) but this policeman took it upon himself to act against a man going about his business without any sign of a crime and no complaint on record at all and could easily have killed the man with no cause.

      I was completely aghast. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. I said “But Virginia is an OPEN CARRY STATE!” To that he said, “But you can’t expect a policeman to know all of the laws….” I was like “WHAT?!” The use of deadly force has law, practice and policy regulating it. And the very idea that a cop would be inclined to act without knowing the law?? Holy smokes. I don’t want to believe this is the standard. I don’t want to believe this is how cops in the field actually operate. But I absolutely KNOW this is how leftists and some of related mindsets think and believe.

      This is what disturbs me the most. They do not believe in law and order — they believe their ideology should be law and that it should be applied against people with whom they disagree. They actually believe in brutal authoritarian government (so long as it’s not directed against themselves) which is precisely why they are so very attracted to those positions of power and authority. And THESE are the people running our government at nearly all levels at present. People who are not like that, today, are rare and generally speaking, ‘elderly.’

  15. From my experience, public sector employees, which includes the rank and file of all the institutions like the FBI, are not there to be honorable citizens and be the best servants of America God has gifted them to be.
    These government employees are there for the secure paycheck, secure easy retirement in 20 years or so, the wonderful benefits and the above average pay, from which you would have to be an obvious criminal to be excluded from. They aren’t concerned with being patriots but are concerned with mortgages, benefits and plush retirement. Work is optional.
    Ask these people to testify against Rod Rosenstein, James Comey, Christopher Wray, Robert Mueller et al and you are asking them to give up an easy paycheck and way of life. Most know no other way.

      I think it is a good reminder on a thread like this one. This is one of the most interesting threads I have read in a long time, And like the Catholic Church, the head of the FBI became corrupted and began to rot from the top. Same with law enforcement and everything else in this country. The left community organized itself into power in every single corner of our life. The churches the schools the neighborhood tea parties.

      When an organization like the FBI starts to rot from the top, the good people are not selected or move away from the stench. But many good people remain. They try to do good within the confines of the job as they have mortgages to pay and other commitments. That doesn’t make them bad people or cowards. Just stuck.

      We need to somehow free the good people with experience from fearing the loss of their livelihood and tap into their expertise to help save us.

    I agree that the FBI needs to be abolished ASAP before it’s too late.

    For decades the FBI had/has the ambition to be the sole federal law enforcement agency by destroying agencies who they perceived as their rivals. Help in that effort so far is that the FBI has significantly more Special Agents assigned to liason with/lobby Congress than any other federal law enforcement agency.

    As evidence that they could do it (FBI sole federal law enforcement)-

    The FBI’s primary targets to destroy were the former U.S. Customs Service/ Office of Investigations (USCS/OI), 2nd being DEA & more recently ICE/HSI. They were jealous of the USCS/OI authorities and the successful myriad of large significant international investigations conducted by the USCS Special Agents. The USCS enforced approx.. 400 federal laws compared to approx. 200 by the FBI.
    Most other agencies enforce approx. 10+ laws.

    * In the 1970s- All of the most talented USCS/OI Special Agents (S/A) assigned to investigate drug smuggling were force-transferred into the newly formed DEA. This subsequently left the Service with a lot of inept supervisors (unaffectionately referred to as the “Class of ’73) that took yrs to overcome.
    * In the early 1980s- the FBI intended to absorb All of the DEA S/As (including the former USCS S/As) into the FBI & moved the DEA’s basic training to Quantico. FBI subsequently nixed that absorption due to those S/As were not “professional” enough but the FBI still had a strangle hold on the DEA (at least through the early ’90s.) Professional in their eyes means “yes men”.

    DEA was an agency that had great S/As who could also play well with others (agencies).
    Once their basic training moved to Quantico, they became as arrogant as the FBI & generally speaking, didn’t play well at all.

    * In 2003 the DHS & ICE were formed- ICE was originally to be named “Investigations & Criminal Enforcement”. The FBI was strongly opposed to the name as they alleged that the public may confuse ICE as being the FBI (lame argument). Thus, the name of the new agency was dubbed “Immigration & Customs Enforcement.”

    The FBI was instrumental in separating ALL, that’s ALL, of the USCS S/As from the USCS.
    For months the then Commissioner of the USCS was repeatedly advised that the USCS would be moved into the DHS as a whole but when USCS employees arrived at work on March 3, 2003, without any warning whatsoever, they learned from Media outlets that the USCS is split in half with All USCS/OI employees being force-transferred into ICE merged with the former INS enforcement arm. USCS & INS were the only agencies that were divided upon moving into the DHS.

    To put salt in the wound, the punk former INS Director was appointed the Director of ICE. INS, the agency abolished by Congress for their gross ineptness (as stated in a Congressional hearing). Those 1st 8 yrs of ICE were pure hell, one ignorant Director after another.

    Then the FBI talked the ICE Director to turn over Operation “Green Quest”, a USCS/OI initiated & led money laundering task force that continued in ICE. Once in their hands, the FBI totally shut down the task force & ICE employees were forbidden from ever even mentioning the words “Green Quest”.

    Then the FBI fought hard to obtain border search authority. Only ICE/HSI and CBP have that authority per law. Thank Gawd they did not succeed in that one!

    Etc, etc, . .

    Had to get that off my chest.

    I’m not sure if you’ve watched the videos on YouTube from retired FBI special agent Cesar Paz & retired FBI supervisor Jeff Danik but they’re worth the time. These 2 career guys made 4 short videos the day after Comey’s June 8, 2017 testimony. These are good guys who made these videos b/c they were shocked by Comey’s testimony & just wanted to give ppl an unbiased opinion from the viewpoint of insiders at FBI. The videos are very telling as far as Comey & Mueller go. They say Comey is actually the 1 who obstructed justice by leaking his memo in order to get a special counsel. If anyone’s interested is watching look up Cesar Paz on YouTube & look for videos w/both their names and part 1, part 2 etc. I’d also recommend watching Cesar’s video titled Mr. Comey you have been PNG’d where Cesar lists out a bunch of ?’s he’d ask Comey if he were in Congress.

      That Time piece was interesting but it was the typical lefty hackwork. There’s far better information in this CTH column and the comments above.

      I agree that the agency needs to be killed and the Washington headquarters destroyed. While it’s possible to turn a major organization around there is NO chance that our current or near-future federal government can do it. The main goal has to be to keep it from continuing to serve as the SS for Democrats in the DOJ and White House. THAT can be done by eliminating the headquarters function.

      Separate the other functions, cancel those with political implications, and disperse them nationally. Ten years down the road if we’re able to elect a few honest administrations, develop a solidly conservative Supreme Court and clean up the worse of the lower courts, elect an honest and pro-American Congress — THEN perhaps we can rebuild the FBI. Until then, cripple it so it cannot help trample our poor republic.

    Mueller:2. Realigning the Workforce to Address Priorities

    In recognition of the continuing terrorist threat facing the United States from the Al-Qaeda network and of the urgent need to continue building the FBI’s capacity to prevent future terrorist acts through improved analytical and intelligence information sharing capabilities, I am proposing a permanent shift of 518 field agents from criminal investigations to augment our counterterrorism investigations and activities (480 agents), implement critical security improvements (13 agents), and support the training of new Special Agents at the FBI Academy (25 agents). The FBI will need to sustain its present level of commitment to combating and preventing terrorism for the foreseeable future and be sufficiently flexible to quickly shift whatever additional resources are necessary to meet any counterterrorism investigative demand that materializes. These 518 agents will be taken primarily from FBI drug investigations (400), although there will be some shift from white-collar (59) and violent crimes (59 agents).

      Seems a division within maybe the DHS comprised of ex-military would serve better with counter-intelligence, counter-terrorism than the FBI. The military has been taught To deal with terrorists in combat situations, hunt terrorists & gather Intel.

      I’d think an ex-military unit (s) would be more effective than the FBI in dealing with terrorist threats. My two cents.

    What if RTLW knew what he/she is talking about? Any marginally competent reporter could find a few of these senior FBI agents in “fly-over country” and verify the story and have a wonderful career ride doing it. Any semi-skilled agent of any investigative unit of anything, House, Senate, DOJ, DHS, etc…anyone could verify that Mueller did these things and an investigative trail could be established. Why would we think this has not ALL already been documented within ongoing investigations? Why would we think this, if true, could have been suppressed? If you were an older agent who had been forced into retirement, would you keep quiet when you have a chance to use your knowledge to mess with Mueller? I surely would. There would appear to be hundreds of agents who were obviously screwed. Would they all be quiet? Why would they if they were the type who would resist Mueller’s attempt to pervert the agency?

    Sorry, this is an inspiring comment, full of hate and fury, but ya know, it seems to signify nothing other than, perhaps, the fact that the FBI and DOJ will continue to be corrupt and no one will do a single thing about it.

    Well, since we’re telling it like it is.

    During the Obama Administration, DOJ/FBI (and many other federal agencies) morphed into criminal enterprises via the influence of corrupt leadership appointed (or compromised) by Obama/Clinton agents. This is a big deal, and hiding this reality is an even a bigger deal because revelation undermines Swamp control of DC politics. Hence, the Keystone cops narrative to excuse the Russia Hoax is much preferable to admitting that these organizations were actually undertaking a premeditated seditious coup against an elected president. And the UK intelligence apparatus (with Ausy complicity) was a willing co-conspirator.

    You cannot undertake a coup halfheartedly, it’s all or nothing. In for a penny, in for a pound. Serious felony criminal acts were perpetrated routinely because the stakes are that you either win or you go to prison. This is not a parlor game of cleverly parsing media reports to ascertain the “truth”, and the cavalry is not coming to save us. As with the yellow vest movement, redemption will arise from the heartland.

      What could be expected from a president who cannot be investigated or vetted at all??? Not school records of any kind. No proof of history of any kind. And later published an obviously false birth certificate with photoshop layers still floating around in the document instead of being flattened. (Easy fix, but they had to trust idiots to do the work because really smart people can’t be trusted to hide the truth.)

      That fact alone was the most telling aspect (no proof of who he is) warning us of what is to come.

      Even today… can we learn anything about Obama or do we have to wait for an actual conviction and his real name in the title of the case “The United States v. ______ (AKA Barack Hussein Obama)”? It’s not that the information is lost. It’s there. It’s just all made unavailable — a feat which normal people in the US cannot do or facilitate.

    Here is what POTUS should be focusing on, this is why the DOJ SUCKS!!!!!
    Totally compromised by hack politicos with agendas.

    “The Justice Department’s inspector general found that the Bush administration — which changed hiring rules to give its political appointees at the Civil Rights Division greater control over civil service hiring starting in 2003 — had violated hiring rules by screening out liberals and by actively seeking to fill civil service vacancies with conservatives, referred to privately by one Bush official as “real Americans” and “right-thinking Americans.”

    President Obama’s appointee to supervise the division, Thomas E. Perez, went further in a 2009 policy giving career professionals sweeping authority to choose whom to recommend to fill openings for experienced lawyers, a much larger group. Under the policy, if an assistant attorney general for civil rights wants to overrule a recommendation, he must do so in writing. Mr. Perez has not overruled any recommendations.

  32. Lactantius says:

    Aristotle, in Nicomachean Ethics (350 B.C.), asks: “Do men love … the good, or what is good for them?” Aristotle refines the question by separating people who are for themselves from “friends bearing goodwill.” In further refinement. Aristotle determines that “those who love for the sake of utility love for the sake of what is good for themselves…” (….) “when the motive of the friendship is done away, the friendship is dissolved, inasmuch as it existed only for the ends in question.”

    Mueller and his merry band of conspirators are gaining pleasure from their shared game and they may even have formed a tight friendship among themselves. But as Aristotle noted 2, 370 years ago “Those of fellow-citizens, fellow-tribesmen, fellow-voyagers, and the like are more like mere friendships of association; for they seem to rest on a sort of compact.

    Mueller and his cohorts are NOT about the love of justice. That is NOT what binds them together. They love the game. If the game is fully exposed, then their “brotherhood” is also exposed as debased and corrupt.

    If their “brotherhood is exposed as diseased and corrupt, it becomes every powerful man for himself” and “goodwill” is replaced by “what is good for themselves.”

    Take the case of James Comey. He is being shown to have been a corrupt Director of the F.B.I. He could disappear and hope to lie low for his remaining days – or – he could “own up” to his indiscretions – or – he could fight the powers subjecting him to exposure. Whatever route he takes, it is based on what James Comey thinks is best for James Comey.

    If the top powers in the Department of Justice and in the F.B.I. are protecting malfeasance and even crimes in their institutionalized practices, then the “institution” they are protecting is also corrupt. Picture the chain of the big fish eating the smaller fish who is eating the smaller fish, ad infinitum. Corruption sets the rules for what type of response is “required” from the top. The smallest fish learns what the next smallest fish “needs to hear” and responds accordingly. The system becomes identical to how “governments” work in a tyranny.

    Aristotle states that the process of “deliberation” is “not about ends but about means.” He concludes that “if we are to be always deliberating, we shall go on to infinity.” We can not, for instance address “corruption” without addressing the “virtue” which is the end goal. What is “virtuous” in a corrupted system? Nothing, of course.

    When framing an argument, it is important to understand what constitutes the argument:

    The DOJ and FBI are meant to uphold the virtue of law and order. How have Mueller, Comey, Cummings, Schiff, Weissman, Pelosi, Nadler, Rosenstein, Clapper, Brennan, Strzok, Ohr, (Bruce), Ohr, (Nellie), Yates, Simpson, Steele, Clinton, Warner, Lynch, Halper, Baker, McCord, Kortan, Obama, etc, et.al. acted “virtuously” in preserving law and order over the presumption of institutional corruption?????? (Or, conversely, how have they corrupted the virtue of law and order?)
