Meet Donald Trump's Top FBI Fanboy

This appeared Nov. 3rd 2016. It leads to an anti-Hillary cabal of former FBI agents with Louis Freeh and Rudy Giulliani at the center. It's long, but worth reading.

Two days before FBI director James Comey rocked the world last week, Rudy Giuliani was on Fox, where he volunteered, un-prodded by any question: “I think he’s [Donald Trump] got a surprise or two that you’re going to hear about in the next few days. I mean, I’m talking about some pretty big surprises.”

Pressed for specifics, he said: “We’ve got a couple of things up our sleeve that should turn this thing around.”

The man who now leads “lock-her-up” chants at Trump rallies spent decades of his life as a federal prosecutor and then mayor working closely with the FBI, and especially its New York office. One of Giuliani’s security firms employed a former head of the New York FBI office, and other alumni of it. It was agents of that office, probing Anthony Weiner’s alleged sexting of a minor, who pressed Comey to authorize the review of possible Hillary Clinton-related emails on a Weiner device that led to the explosive letter the director wrote Congress.

Hours after Comey’s letter about the renewed probe was leaked on Friday, Giuliani went on a radio show and attributed the director’s surprise action to “the pressure of a group of FBI agents who don’t look at it politically.”

“The other rumor that I get is that there’s a kind of revolution going on inside the FBI about the original conclusion [not to charge Clinton] being completely unjustified and almost a slap in the face to the FBI’s integrity,” said Giuliani. “I know that from former agents. I know that even from a few active agents.”

2. Comey said he ordered an investigation

into the leaks but no result ever appeared. No one was disciplined. CREW filed an foia in April but that wil take a while. We need Congress to hold hearings.

4. Just heard Adam Schiff on MTP say that the investigation into the NY Field Office

is ongoing so there is no definite information yet.
Waiting with anxious anticipation.
