FBI Director Chris Wray Responds to FISA Court – More Training, More Promises, No Mention of Accountability…

In June 2018, in response to an IG investigation, while denying the FBI had any political bias, FBI Director Christopher Wray promised anti-bias training for all agents. In response to the “challenges” identified by the report, the FBI “appreciates the opportunity” to provide more “support” to our employees. [June 14th, 2018]

In December 2019, in response to another IG investigation, while denying FBI agents would intentionally act illegally, FBI Director Christopher Wray notified the FISA court a Senior FBI investigative lawyer named Kevin Clinesmith intentionally falsified evidence on a FISA application.

In response to the FBI notification, late December 2019 the FISA court demanded to know what corrective actions the FBI was going to take; and what other applications FBI Lawyer, Kevin Clinesmith, was involved in.

In response today (full pdf below) FBI Director Christopher Wray promises more training.

[Cloud pdf Link Here]

Making the statements even more ironic; and almost appearing to rub salt into the psyche wounds they inflict; the FBI notification of corrective action was submitted to the FISA court and signed by FBI Counsel Dana Boente:

As head of the DOJ-NSD it was the same Dana Boente who signed the fraudulent FISA renewal in 2017…. Go figure.

Throughout 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and through today, across both administrations, the corrupt group within the FBI in DC were/are protecting themselves. The FBI redacted the Lisa Page and Peter Strzok text messages. The FBI removed Page and Strzok texts and emails. The FBI hid texts and emails from Lisa Page to Andrew McCabe. The FBI kept documents from congress. The FBI has leaked false information to media to cover their tracks; and yes the Trump FBI have participated.

The corrupt FBI under James Comey, Andrew McCabe and James Baker is being protected and facilitated by the corrupt FBI under Christopher Wray, David Bowditch (San Bernadino infamy) and Dana Boente.

It’s one long continuum of exactly the same behavior.

Remember, 50 FBI ‘agents’ on Mueller’s team?  This DC network is ideologically aligned, operating on their own self-interests, & facilitated by a compliant media.  {Go Deep}

      “If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary. In framing a government which is to be administered by men over men, the great difficulty lies in this: you must first enable the government to control the governed; and in the next place oblige it to control itself.” – Alexander Hamilton

      The “in the next place oblige it to control itself” is IMPOSSIBLE precisely because men are not angels. THUS, the power of government must be absolutely minimized. That message has obviously been lost to most.

        There is also that other old adage “it starts at the top.” Even more so in a bureaucracy. I have no idea who pulls/pulled obama’s strings but casual observation strongly suggests he’s neither a leader or a workaholic.

        Obama appoints obedient administrators and IGs… on and on. Once in place they establish procedures that keep them in place. They understand how to exploit the system and curry favor or exert leverage over those on the other side. It’s not an original story. It doesn’t have a happy ending.

    Do you think history doesn’t repeat? This is so reminiscent of the IRS management response to Congressional investigations/hearings held from 1989-1992 regarding IRS Senior Employee Misconduct Problems. The IRS, in its wisdom, vowed to provide mandatory ethics training for all working level employees. Apparently, they felt the management level employees were incorrigible (The Congressional investigation/ hearings were headed up by Congressman Doug Barnard, D-Georgia.)

      The IRS later refigured the taxes on the accounts that had been wronged and did reimburse those who had been cheated out of free status illegally. At least there was recompense, if not indictments against the likes of Lois Learner. Now the only recompense against the FBI will be if Carter Page sues their pants off. They are counting on Page being unable to afford the raft of attorneys that would involve. Aren’t you surprised Our President would let all the perps hide and walk away? Doesn’t that make you want to quit supporting him? if he doesn’t care enough to punish the perps so this doesn’t happen again or happen to you or me, why should we care what happens to him? A stinkin’ dirty DOJ imperils every one of us! Sorry I didn’t read to see if anyone else wrote the same thing, gotta run right now. There is no dust bin in which to toss my fury over this travesty.

        What your question suggests is that you would prefer a dictator who acts as judge, jury, and executioner.

        President Trump is not the investigator. He is not the prosecutor, the judge or the jury. He is, however, the President exposing the corruption that has been hidden from us throughout multiple administrations. For that reason we should care what happens to him.

As President he has no authority to indict, arrest, prosecute and sentence those found to be corrupt. Like it or not, that’s the job of the DOJ – and ultimately up to us to get them out of ‘our’ government. We seem to be forgetting our government is ‘by’ we the people.

    Wray fully understands that Mainstreet USA will not settle for “we’re sorry, we won’t do it again.” He also understands and accepts that the reputation of the FBI has been severely damaged by this ongoing criminality. And he blithely assumes that time will heal these wounds when the public memory of these events fades. He is wrong about that. From now on, every member of the FBI will be viewed as a potential dirty cop and not trusted in the least. The hard-earned wisdom will be taught to children and passed down to each generation.

    That is a huge price to pay for the honor of letting the dirty cop coup conspirators skate. The American people will never accept hypocrisy and double standards by the Cloud People in DC.

      Wray fully doesn’t give a sh!t what Main Street USA thinks. He’s not about to change anything except make sure the FIB is even more cautious in hiding their criminal activities.

      If there were justice in the world he’d be visited by strong men at night, whereupon he’d have a change of mind and heart.

      I disagree. At least 45% of the American people vote Democrat, as that is their loyal base. Most of them either couldn’t care less, or worse, they think that this behavior is clever and cute. Slick Willie was their hero – the epitome of the lovable rogue…

      The American people are not as moral as they once were.

      This reminds me of the ironic line about the prison warden who said “We’re not getting the same quality of prisoners as we used to.”

    I want to say something about Qanon. The question as to whether it’s “real” or not leads MAGA into a fight that becomes unproductive. Let’s pause for a second on why it is so compelling, to so many people.

    Of course there’s an element of “hope porn” but if it were just that, it wouldn’t have endured. I suggest the “Q” phenomenon only endures because we are now living in the Permanent Lie — meaning that state of Totalitarianism where the lie has become so total it never butts up against reality; what would be a course correction by facts or truth is in fact the opposite — a trigger for ever more strident narrative control, ever more strident consequences for dissension or disbelief. We know we’re living in that moment, because even stating it is unremarkable for the few of us here; it is stating the obvious.

    I sat across from a woman yesterday who declared that President Trump is “evil;” I could see her burning with anger inside by the mere fact that I didn’t react to her statement. I didn’t smile knowingly or validate her with a look of approval. I sat still without changing my facial expression. And I doubt I will ever speak to her again; I could see and feel the dark need for even a subtle sign of confirmation. This woman was a conflict resolution specialist by profession.

    The Permanent Lie requires absolute assent; even to the level of body language.

    So how does this relate to Q? A body politic living under the Permanent Lie clings to unsanctioned narrative wherever it finds it; like a heat-seeking missile, we seek out voices (even anonymous) that point out what we KNOW is BS; what we know is propaganda and platitude and misguided hero-worship being shoveled at us, which we deeply suspect has the purpose or effect of harming us; which we know at the deepest levels we aren’t allowed to speak of or display in polite company, even with so much as the wrong kind of facial expression.

    Qanon’s style, and many of its nuggets of purported wisdom have been ridiculed mercilessly. But if you read it day by day, it’s undeniable that there is a logic there (I’m saying a LOGIC — not omniscience or prescience); it’s undeniable that it is pointing to deeply unsettling counter-explanations that WOULDN’T hold sway on people if the OFFICIAL narratives had not become the oppressive edifice of the Permanent Lie.

    This is a defense or advocacy for Q. It’s meant to bring into the light of conversation what the Q phenomenon, and it’s undeniable impact, means or represents.

    If I understand correctly, fabricating evidence when none exists is a “training” issue. I’m not in law enforcement, but I would think that FBI agents and leadership would know they shouldn’t fabricate evidence. Maybe this is just beyond my understanding because I’ve never tried to send a 4-star general to prison. I’m also not a lawyer, so I wouldn’t understand that inserting a word like “not” into a sentence about Carter Paige’s involvement with the CIA could be problematic.

    Unfortunately, I’m one of the minions so I MUST follow the law. Just like True the Vote had to follow the law from the IRS, OSHA, ATF and any other law from corrupt agencies. The submariner also found out about the law when he took pictures in his submarine. If only he could set up a private server to avoid FOIA requests, he too could have been protected.

    Dan Bongino floated the idea of eliminating all of the individual agencies and creating three law enforcement agencies. A criminal investigation, internal affairs and counterintelligence agencies would prevent the issue that it looks like happened between the CIA and FBI. It would also prevent the silos that are clearly playing out in the spygate investigation.

    Utter nonsense. Every damn one of them went to law school. Every damn one of them took the mandatory ethics courses. Every damn one of them passed a bar exam with an ethics section. No amount of ethics training or anti-bias seminars will remedy a culture at odds with both the laws they are supposed to uphold and the citizens whose interests they are supposed to be representing.

    The solution, the ONLY solution, is firings and disbarments. Eliminate every person who participated in the wrongdoing, every person who had a professional duty to probe for it but didn’t, to see it but looked the other way, and every person who now makes excuses for it. There ARE NO excuses. It is black and white.

    It is easy to then say “but of course this will not happen.” I reject that. I fully expect AG Barr and US Atty Durham to do all of the above, and complete all of it in 2020. THAT is the expectation. THAT is the performance objective they are expected to complete. I will accept, none of us should accept, anything less.

This was an attempt to overturn a valid election and invalidate my rights as a citizen. This is what really pisses the elitites off, that their citizenship has no greater status or value that any deplorables’. So what do they try and do in a seditious and possibly treasonous manner?

Lying is unbecoming a professional, especially one entrusted to hold up constitutional law? Unlearn things like though shalt not practice guilt by accusation, or association, or plant evidence to falsely accuse, or intentionally hide evidence that proves one not guilty as assumed? Or should we simply abandon the FBI and CIA and start over with a few good men that have morals ethics and standards? America might be safer for all Americans with people like you, Christopher Wray fires with no federal compensation. People like Obama Hillary John Kerry , Clapper, Brennan, Christopher Wray and fired FBI special agents on the payroll adds only to our crisis of national debt.
