The FBI has always been dirty – consider local G-men Zip Connolly and H. Paul Rico, who were both Mob hitmen, not to mention John “Vino” Morris and a host of other very “special” agents in the Boston office.

Still, the Famous But Incompetent crew has never been as corrupt as it is now shown to be.

Forget Watergate. These revelations about both the Uranium One Clinton bribery scandal and the dodgy dossier are nothing less than Watergate on steroids.

Think about the so-called dossier – a remake of From Russia with Love.

Commissioned and paid for Hillary Clinton and the Democrat National Committee, it is a 35-page collection of fabrications about the Republican candidate for president, breathlessly peddled for months by the Democrat operatives of the alt-left media. When Hillary stopped paying for it, the G-men decided to step in as paymasters. They saw it as part of their job – to fix the election.

Consider: the FBI was going to use taxpayer funds to buy agitprop from Russia to undermine the nationalist candidate for president, the one whose spouse hadn’t already collected $500,000 cash from the Kremlin.

Talk about collusion.

But wait, it gets worse. The dossier’s “unverified and salacious” allegations, in the words of bent director James Comey, may have been used to get warrants to surveil Trump and his associates.

And they said Nixon was into dirty tricks?

If a cop lies to obtain a warrant, whatever evidence he collects from that warrant is thrown out of court. They call it fruit of the poisoned tree. What allegations in the dirty dossier have ever panned out? Now the card-carrying Hillary apologists are claiming it was just “opposition research,” but there’s no real research in it.

The best spin the Democrats can put on the dossier is that the most serious fabrications in the dossier “remain unproven” or “uncorroborated.” Really? How do you prove a negative?

But until the G-men got busted in the media, the FBI had been planning to use public funds to pick up the tab for the Democrats’ disinformation campaign.

It’s as if in the spring of 1972, just before his death, J. Edgar Hoover had hired a bunch of Cuban-Americans to burglarize the DNC headquarters at the Watergate.

Only it’s worse. Because Watergate was purely domestic. These dirty tricks were done hand in glove with the Russians. The “sources” for the dossier were Russians. The company that commissioned it, Fusion GPS, was working for the Russians on other smears.

If the dossier were really on the level, then why did Hillary and the DNC adamantly deny for a year, sanctimoniously, as the New York Times put it, and sometimes in front of Congressional committees, that they had paid for the anti-Trump smear campaign. They lied, for a year, over and over and over again. Just ask the Times reporters.

The fake-news dossier was released in January by Buzzfeed, a cat-video website owned by NBC News. You know, the outfit of Chelsea Clinton, the Rev. Al Sharpton, Brian Williams, Mike Barnicle, etc. NBC News, which killed Ronan Farrow’s expose on Harvey Weinstein, one of the Cllintons’ biggest campaign contributors.

Okay, so this was the Obama administration, and the alt-left media. We know who they are, and what despicable acts they’re capable of.

But the FBI? I thought they were at least trying to get onto the straight and narrow after all these decades of corruption.

But what did J. Edgar Hoover ever do that compares to this? He maybe took a few tips from the Mafia on fixed horse races. He blackmailed the Kennedys on their girlfriends, their Mob ties and the mysterious death of Marilyn Monroe.

Sleazy stuff, but Hoover never tried to fix a presidential election. That’s what Comey did, when he bagged the Hillary email case in July of last year, before he even interviewed her.

Hey, he wanted to keep his job in the inevitable Hillary administration, so he did them a few favors, or tried to.

Naturally the alt-left media have become the FBI’s greatest defenders. Whenever a scandal seems likely to afflict Democrats, they lose interest in it. It’s automatic. Two months ago, CNN hacks like Jake Tapper (who used to work for Chelsea Clinton’s mother-in-law) were adamant about “getting to the bottom” of the Russian scandal.

Now that it’s clear that the scandal involves the Democrat party and its stooges in the FBI, it’s the old nothing-to-see-here-folks-move-along routine.

Three months ago, these Democrat hacks were literally accusing Donald Trump Jr. of treason for a 10-minute meeting with a Russian lawyer. Now it turns out that the Democrats funneled $9.2 million to a law firm that then worked with Russians to sabotage the presidential election, and all they can say is, “Everybody does it.”

  1. This is what we get when Big Government, Big Media, and Big Business are all in cahoots together. Pray for what’s left of this once-great country, thankful that the woman with the BIG ASS didn’t win The Presidency and finish us off for good…

  2. I swear, it’s a true miracle that Trump won in view of the widespread corrupt conspiracy against him. It must have been Divine Providence. That’s the only possible explanation. Thank God for President Trump!
