“I know that inside the FBI there is a revolt” -diGenova

11-7-16    SEAN HANNITY (HOST):  Let me start with what happened over the weekend, and James Comey saying that he had seen no evidence — you know, here’s a guy that — it took him 270 days to go through 30, 32,000 emails, but he was able to, in record time, review 650,000 new emails in 8 days.  Pretty talented, don’t you think?

NEWT GINGRICH:  Well, you know what makes it funnier?  The State Department today said it was going to take them five years, five years to go through 35,000 emails.

HANNITY:  Yeah.

GINGRICH:  Now, explain to me how the FBI could go through 650,000 in eight days, and the State Department can’t do it in less than — can’t do ten percent of that in less than 5 years?

HANNITY:  Look —

GINGRICH:  I mean, this is an absurdity, and it just tells you that the corruption, you know, as my good friend Randy Evans points out — the corruption is a cancer, and if you don’t cut it out, it keeps growing.  And we’re now seeing how a corrupt Justice Department is beginning to corrupt the FBI, and that’s genuinely frightening, because if law enforcement becomes corrupted, you just — you don’t have the rule of law.

HANNITY:  No, you’ve lost your country, let’s be honest.  And what’s fascinating — either one, or two people are lying.  Either James Comey is lying, or the FBI rank and file are lying, and I’m putting my money that the rank and file is trying to tell us the truth.

GINGRICH:  Absolutely.       http://mediamatters.org/video/2016/11/07/sean-hannity-fbi-director-james-comey-lying-about-hillary-clintons-emails/214372

I don’t know Jim Comey personally, but he was the Deputy Attorney General when I was hired in the Civil Rights Division.  I met him once when he was going around and meeting the various people in my section.  I remember that he was very tall and very nice.  Also, as anyone who has ever worked in the Justice Department to tell you, he has long had an absolutely sterling reputation for integrity.  He is seen as the quintessential straight shooter, immune to the vagaries of politics.  Until, that is, this past July.  That’s when he committed what may fairly be called his original sin–thinking this was actually about him.

Let me explain that.  I know that Jim Comey has a sterling reputation for integrity. Everybody knows Jim Comey has a sterling reputation for integrity.  And the problem is, Jim Comey knows that, too.  I don’t for one second believe that he is taking sides in the presidential race.  I believe that when he held his press conference in July, he did it because he thought he owed the American people an explanation about why no case against Hillary Clinton would be brought.

He was right about one thing.  The American people did deserve to know that….The problem is that this explanation should not have come from him.  It should have come from his boss, the Attorney General, who actually decides whether to prosecute someone. And that’s when the problem started….

The FBI should’ve taken one look at that pathetic man (A. Weiner) and said, “We are not going to have anything more to do with this idiot.  NYPD, he’s all yours.”  Instead the FBI decided that we needed to make a federal case out of someone who appears to be just a well-connected sex addict.  And now, FBI, you reap what you sow.

But back to Comey.  The emails come in.  Comey now realizes he may have to walk back what he said in July.  So he’s faced with a dilemma:  say nothing, have it leak, and be accused of a cover-up; or say something, have it blow up, and be accused of interfering with the election.  There was no good outcome.  And that’s because he had, in July, made it about him.  He put his name on the line when he held that press conference.  Now his name would be on the line again, no matter what he did.   http://abovethelaw.com/2016/11/jim-comey-and-the-risks-of-believing-too-much-in-your-own-reputation/

10-13-16      “I know that inside the FBI there is a revolt,” Joseph diGenova tells The American Spectator.  “There is a revolt against the director.  The people inside the bureau believe the director is a dirty cop.  They believe that he threw the [Hillary Clinton email] case.  They do not know what he was promised in return.  But the people inside the bureau who were involved in the case and who knew about the case are talking to former FBI people expressing their disgust at the conduct of the director.”

The loss of faith in the bureau chief stems in part from a dishonest rendering of the decision not to indict Mrs. Clinton as unanimous rather than unilateral and in part from the bureau’s decision to destroy evidence in the case and grant blanket immunity to Clinton underlings for no possible prosecutorial purpose.

“There is a consensus among the employees that the director has lost all credibility and that he cannot lead the bureau,” diGenova explains.  “They are comparing him to L. Patrick Gray, the disgraced former FBI director who threw Watergate papers into the Potomac River.  The resistance to the director has made the agency incapable of action.  It has been described to me as a depression within the agency unlike anything that anyone has ever seen within the bureau.  The director’s public explanation for the unorthodox investigation are viewed by people in the bureau as sophomoric and embarrassing.”    http://spectator.org/former-u-s-attorney-agents-see-fbi-chief-comey-as-a-dirty-cop/

This is 47.? of a game from Germany, 1999.   What counts here?    -solution below for those interested-

47. Kh5 is very bad, cutting off the white king just when the pressure on the black king is high; the correct move is 47. Kf6 or 47. b5, soon followed by Kf6.  This gives the direct win; 47. Kh5 allows black a draw if black is careful after 47…. Rg3, that is, black needs to keep the white king out of play awhile.         -r, mt. shasta
