The IG report has dozens of exposures within.

One hot one that might shed some light on "Leaking" is about many FBI agents getting gifts from MSM contacts.

Hot it's getting 😃

IG Report: FBI Agents Regularly Received Free Handouts From Journalists

The Department of Justice inspector general identified a number of instances where FBI employees regularly spoke with members of the media and received a number of free perks from journalists including meals and tickets to various events.

On page XII in the report, the IG says the department “identified numerous FBI employees, at all levels of the organization and with no official reason to be in contact with the media, who were nevertheless in frequent contact with reporters.”

The IG expressed “profound concerns bout the volume and extent of unauthorized media contacts by FBI personnel that we have uncovered our review.”




The Public Report


As we also describe in Chapter Twelve, among the
issues we reviewed were allegations that Department
and FBI employees improperly disclosed non-public
information regarding the Midyear investigation.
Although FBI policy strictly limits the employees who
are authorized to speak to the media, we found that
this policy appeared to be widely ignored during the
period we reviewed.

We identified numerous FBI employees, at all levels of
the organization and with no official reason to be in
contact with the media, who were nevertheless in
frequent contact with reporters. Attached to this report
as Attachments E and F are two link charts that reflect
the volume of communications that we identified
between FBI employees and media representatives in
April/May and October 2016. We have profound
concerns about the volume and extent of unauthorized
media contacts by FBI personnel that we have
uncovered during our review.

Looks like the FBI is going to hanging the "Help Wanted" sign.
Leaking confidential investigation info is illegal. At a very minimum, it's bound to be a serious violation of official policy.

How in the world does that not result in political bias?

Well, I thought the FBI was about stopping criminals, not using a position
for scoring freebie game tickets, golf passes, alcohol and free meals
in exchange for leaks?

Is this a crime?

Are these agents still employed at the FBI?

Thats all it takes is for ONE agent to say something and its an official anon source, lol.

Sadly, no matter how we all can easily connect the dots, the preliminary releases are being worded in such a way as to make me wonder if crappola is going to come of this...IE the real crux of the matter, the FBI was being used politically.

BWAHAHAHA exactly as I predicted..

A bunch of stuff “ that sounds so concerning” but doesn’t say anyone should be fired, charged or held accountable in any way shape form or fashion at all..

An investigation nor investigator are required to be unbiased...


The judge is required to be unbiased. The jury is required to be unbiased..

The cops and prosecutors are supposed to think you are guilty.. or they shouldn’t be charging/investigating you.

The important question is WHY is nothing being done about it??


A) trump is in on it??


B) trump was making up the scandal from whole cloth??


It doesn’t make any sense that trump would be in on a conspiracy against himself.

From the Clinton News Network


(CNN)The Justice Department's internal watchdog found that former FBI Director James Comey's actions in the Hillary Clinton email investigation deviated from the department's norms but that Comey was not motivated by political bias.


Now they admit that Comey "deviated from the department's norms", aka CONSPIRED AGAINST AN PRESIDENT CANDIDATE, but of course that he was not by the Clinton's sides.

Cutting the strings.

It's funny how you can see what's true just by observing how CNN twist the stories.

Before the IG report:

Comey did nothing wrong.

After the IG report:

Well, yea, he screwed up, BUT he wasn't acting on behalf of Obama/Clinton

Enjoy the time you have left. Truth is hitting you hard like a dam train.

There will be nowhere to hide.

Sorry, bias can also be them charging you when they know you are innocent, because of their bias.

The report says Senior FBI officials were biased against Trump and actively tried to prevent him from being President.

The Justice Department inspector general on Thursday castigated former FBI Director James B. Comey for his actions during the Hillary Clinton email investigation and found that other senior bureau officials showed a “willingness to take official action” to prevent Donald Trump from becoming president.


They just have no evidence bias played a role in the Clinton investigation. The funny thing is they know the Trump haters used PERSONAL devices for work related purposes in violation of policy, but they refused to look at the content of those messages.


An FBI official says the bureau is not working to collect messages between anti-Trump FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, despite the request to do so from a top Republican senator as well as evidence suggesting they communicated about “work-related” matters on non-FBI accounts.

Good to know, and Trump has seen this.

So we can count on it he knows who they are,
their days are numbered.

Seriously? Comey helped the Trump campaign with his impromptu news conference. That's a fact. So yes the Republican James Comey helped the RINO Trump. So I guess the F.B.I. was used as a political weapon.
