OIG Finds FBI Contractor Corruption With Two Current Senior FBI Officials…

This is really interesting.  Unfortunately, we don’t get the names.

Findings of Misconduct by Two Current Senior FBI Officials and One Retired FBI Official While Providing Oversight on an FBI Contract (LINK)

(pdf link)

Key phrases: “two current senior FBI officials”, “one former”, relating to an “FBI Contractor”.  Could this be an FBI contractor like Fusion-GPS or Crowdstrike?

I wish we could know more.

          At least for now, hopefully these abuses aren’t happening anymore. At least there’s that.

              @Laure: Exactly!

              One of these ‘contractors’ was Nellie Ohr who worked in tandem with John Brennan being that she is a CIA plant who was trained at “The Farm”.
              Nellie Ohr accessed illegally some of the info she then used to start the dossier. There is more info on her on #ffe3301.
              Remember the dossier was the product of Nellie Ohr and John Brennan that than was branched out. To give it intelligence legitimacy they contracted Christopher Steele – there tired UK MI6 agent.

              This whole shit show was the overall product of the UK based Hakluyt who’s members were: Steele, Brennan, Hussein, Fusion GPS, Perkins and Coie’s Sussman, Halper and most of all the 5EYES.

              I would think at some point Perkins needs to be added to the dossier saga as they not only laundered monies to pay for it all and hired the various characters involved in it.
              Nellie Ohr played a much larger role than originally thought as she wrote and dressed up this dossier.

              No wonder Bruce Ohr turned states evidence to save his wife but himself as well.

              Then there is Priestap who had a much larger role playing the go-between the FBI and DOJ as well as GPS Fussion.

        The Department of Justice (DOJ) Office of the Inspector General (OIG) initiated this
        investigation upon the receipt of information from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
        concerning multiple allegations involving an FBI contractor and three FBI officials.”

          They know. The level of cynicism in most .gov agencies would curdle milk at 500 yards. All they want to do is collect their paychecks and not think about how they earn them, because if they REALLY looked closely and objectively at what they do to make their money, most of them would know they were totally worthless and a lot of them would have to admit they are a net negative to the nation they purport to civilly serve.

          I remember reading some time ago that polls (Rasmussen, I believe), regularly show that the majority of people in the U.S. believe the country is NOT governed according to the will of the people. I suspect that if the question asked was, “Do you hold the U.S. Government in utter contempt?”, you would get even a higher majority.

          If my anecdotal evidence is anything to go by, Americans generally neither like nor respect their government. No wonder the actual, effective .gov motto is “Oderint dum metuant.”

In fact, Tatiana talked Polina out of divorcing Oleg back in 2009 because of Oleg’s heavy indebtedness at the time. Polina has been linked romantically with Roman Abramovich, Polina’s best friend’s ex-husband and a close business associate of Oleg’s. It is Roman Abramovich’s ex-wife who is/was living in that 5-story posh residence Oleg owns in Manhattan that was an object of Treasury Dept sanction a few months ago.

    Managed to disengage as higher-ups were not willing to have a ‘partnering’ meeting with them and respective offices of council to explain the issue.

    That said… on a tangent… as much as Mueller likes to play with ‘process crimes’ a forensic accountant and a willing prosecutor could put Mueller away for life plus 500 years after 15 minutes work.

    From the Article…

    (*Emphasis mine*)

    Page seven of the report contains a chart showing four types of violations. The most frequent violation – 5.2% of the total – came from Section 702 upstream “About” queries.
    It’s unclear if Rogers discovered the 702 violations and reported them in 2015, or if it was the Inspector General who found them. Either way, Rogers became aware of Section 702 violations sometime in 2015. Following the IG’s report, Rogers implemented a tightening of internal rules at the NSA.

    Rogers also put a stop to Section 702 “Upstream” activities – specifically “About” queries – which allow searches based on any subject.

    The NSA press release makes it appear as if “About” queries were stopped in April 2017. This is incorrect. The queries were halted on October 26, 2016. The April 2017 release made the “About” queries suspension permanent.

    At this point, I defer to the outstanding detective work from (*theconservativetreehouse*) who tied events together with the following timeline:

    In mid-2016, Rogers ordered the NSA compliance officer to run a full audit on 702 NSA compliance.

    The NSA compliance officer identified several strange 702 “About Queries” that were being conducted. These were violations of the fourth amendment (search and seizure), ie. unlawful surveillance and gathering. Admiral Rogers was briefed by the compliance officer on October 20th, 2016.

    INVESTIGATIVE SUMMARY
    Findings of Misconduct by Two Current Senior FBI Officials and One Retired FBI Official While
    Providing Oversight on an FBI Contract
    The Department of Justice (DOJ) Office of the Inspector General (OIG) initiated this
    investigation upon the receipt of information from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
    concerning multiple allegations involving an FBI contractor and three FBI officials.
    The OIG found that as a result of conduct by two current senior FBI officials, and one retired FBI
    official, the FBI contractor engaged in certain inherent governmental activities in contravention
    of Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR). Additionally, the OIG found that these three FBI
    officials did not adhere to Office of Management and Budget policy while managing the
    contractor. Further, the OIG found that the FBI contractor failed to adhere to personal conflict
    of interest rules under the FAR.
    The OIG has completed its investigation and provided its report to the FBI for appropriate
    action.

    Sundance–As to the contractor maybe being Crowdstrike, the FBI had entered into a contract with Crowdstrike coincident to Trump announcing his candidacy and Comey launching Trump-Russia-Wikileaks by starting his campaign to drill into the public consciousness that Russians hacked the DNC by having an agent telephone the DNC to inform them of the Russians being in their network during the summer of 2015, not 2016. The FBI began a contract with Crowdstrike in July 2015. The contract was good until July 2016, the end of the alleged hack. For some reason, the contract appears to be classified. I’ve asked Judicial Watch to consider a FOIA. If they decline, I’ll find out how to file one in concert with Adam Carter, who originated the idea of filing a FOIA.

      Doohmax, any disciplinary action against the agents depends on the seriousness of what they are being accused of doing. Federal Civil Service Code recognizes due process rights, including an employee or terminated employee’s right to a hearing in front of a merit review board should the OOPR recommend termination, or even unpaid suspension with a possible demotion. Happens at the state, county and city levels of civil service as well. It’s very frustrating and the reason why many supervisors don’t to their jobs when it comes to documenting employee misconduct. It’s easier to transfer the problem child to another department so it’s someone else’s headache, rather than to deal head-on with the problem.
