The Office of Inspector General’s report on the FBI and Justice Department’s handling and mishandling of the investigation of former secretary of state Hillary Clinton’s use of an unauthorized, non-secure email server to conduct secret government business as Secretary of State revealed real and damning information on the mainstream media and their tight relationship with the deepest members of the deep state.
But for some reason this story has just disappeared into the ether.
And with all this talk of collusion you’d think this would be a hot topic.
While the FBI was leaking classified information, reporters were funneling bribes back to the leakers in the form of tickets to sporting events, golf outings, dinners, drinks, invites to private exclusive parties and more.
“We identified instances where FBI employees improperly received benefits from reporters, including tickets to sporting events, golfing outings, drinks, and meals, and admittance to nonpublic social events,” reads Michael Horowitz’ report.
Horowitz has a separate investigation on the culture of leaks at the FBI and “will separately report on those investigations as they are concluded” the report stated.
“We have profound concerns about the volume and extent of unauthorized media contacts by FBI personnel that we have uncovered during our review,” the IG continued. “These leaks highlight the need to change what appears to be a cultural attitude among many in the organization.”
Along with the FBI’s cozy relationship with the media, Horowitz’s report says that officials in the bureau at “all levels of the organization” leaked information to reporters without authorization.
Elsewhere, the IG report outlined numerous instances of bias by several FBI officials, including a text message in which an FBI agent working on the Clinton email probe called Trump supporters “retarded.”
The rules define a prohibited source as a person who:
- Is seeking official action by, is doing business or seeking to do business with, or is regulated by the employee’s agency; or
- Has interests that may be substantially affected by performance or nonperformance of the employee’s official duties.
Those definitions derive from the U.S. Code that states violations will be sanctioned “in accordance with any applicable laws, executive orders, and rules or regulations.”
The stories about the mainstream media being biased and working with very biased and very powerful federal bureaucrats, meeting at private and elite cocktail parties to plot their own agenda and the downfall of their political enemies were not some conspiracy theory after all, it was very much true and, apparently, it was common business in Obama’s Washington.
The bottom line is the mainstream media colluded with agents and executives at every level of the FBI to try to affect the results of the 2016 presidential election.
