As the tidal waves of their tainted works have receded on this one case, Americans are witnessing the storm debris of anti-American greed.
To date, there have been no repercussions for the huge corruption at the highest echelons of government, although there are reports documenting the wrongdoing.
According to a recent OIG report, an inquiry was conducted, and another corrupt FBI agent was found guilty of leaking sensitive information to the media, including a draft of a report, in a report entitled:
Findings of Misconduct by a Former DOJ OIG Employee for Unauthorized Disclosure of Sensitive, Non-Public Information to the Media, Including Information from a Draft DOJ OIG Report
According to the report: “Upon reporting by a media outlet that it had reviewed a draft report of the Department of Justice (DOJ) Office of the Inspector General (OIG), the DOJ OIG referred for investigation to the Integrity Committee of the Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency (CIGIE), as required by the Inspector General Act, the question of whether one or more DOJ OIG employees had disclosed the draft DOJ OIG report or other sensitive, non-public information
about the then-ongoing DOJ OIG review to the media without authorization.”
In other words, the subject of this investigation leaked draft papers to media contacts and accepted presents from media contacts.
From July 31, 2016, through May 5, 2017, the FBI conducted a counterintelligence investigation codenamed Crossfire Hurricane.
The Crossfire Wikipedia page provides an excellent summary:
At issue were the alleged links between Russian officials and associates of Donald J. Trump and “whether individuals associated with [his] presidential campaign were coordinating, wittingly or unwittingly, with the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential election”, according to court documents.
The investigation was formally initiated on July 31, 2016, initially based on evidence on Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos’ early claims that the Russians possessed harmful information on Trump’s rival candidate Hillary Clinton.

The FBI’s work was taken over on May 17, 2017, by the Special Counsel investigation of 2017–2019, which eventually resulted in the Mueller Report. Mueller concluded that Russian interference occurred in a “sweeping and systematic fashion” and that there were substantial links with the Trump campaign, but the evidence available to investigators did not establish that the Trump campaign had “conspired or coordinated” with the Russian government.
Trump and his allies repeatedly alleged that the Crossfire Hurricane investigation was opened on false pretenses for political purposes. Read more…
