FBI assassination threats?

No wonder the FBI is so desperate to bury the text messages sent between their agents and executives:
A high-ranking FBI official confirms a number of the missing 50,000 FBI text messages — as well as other text and email messages among FBI brass — reportedly discussed initiating physical harm to President Donald Trump.

The FBI official urged the U.S. Department of Homeland Security — which oversees the U.S. Secret Service  — to launch an investigation of the Justice Department, the FBI and all text messages missing and otherwise that threatened the President.

“This is dangerous territory and all FBI text messages and personal phones should be examined,” the official said. “It would reveal some frightening conversations.”

Did FBI brass discuss the assassination of President Donald Trump? If not, what was the nature of the threats against the president from inside the alleged premiere law enforcement agency in the United States?

“(Director) Wray wants a lid on this,” the FBI official said. “Many know there was talk of harming Trump politically but there is a group here (in D.C. HQ) that understands it goes deeper. We need a special counsel or Homeland Security. Somebody has to clean this up outside of DOJ. It is unacceptable.

“This is much larger than just texts between two FBI agents.”

The FBI official called on President Trump to do what is necessary to weed out corruption in the FBI.

“Text messages just don’t disappear,” the FBI official said. “Not here. Someone outside DOJ has to look at all emails and texts. These (FBI bosses) are bad people. You’ve only scratched the surface.”

The high-ranking FBI official called on lawmakers and the Inspector General to focus on the text and email messages of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. The official referred to McCabe’s official and personal correspondences “an anti-Trump treasure trove.”
Q was right, apparently. These people are not only evil, they are stupid as well. I mean, they know better than anyone else that all electronic communications are monitored somewhere, by someone.

Until the high ranking FBI official reveals his name, why should we trust this report? I hope to see corrupt officials arrested as much as the next, but these reports mean as much to me as the unnamed sources making up Trump rumors.

The damage control will be that this is a Russian plot to undermine the FBI, and then the discussion will focus on whether or not Russia did anything instead of what the thing is actually about.

In a previous thread when it was mentioned that there may be texts sent by FBI agents discussing assassination I said that I found that hard to believe because FBI agents would know better than to leave a digital trail. Several people on that thread assured me that they really were that stupid. Those people were correct. I should know better than to underestimate the stupidity of a government bureaucrat.

It is time to remove 10% of the FBI budget, and, if they do not respect the Congress and come completely clean to our elected officials - if the primacy of elected government and the submission of the bureaucracy is not forthcoming - after a reasonable period, the Congress must continue removing additional 10% swaths until submission is forthcoming.

Rush Limbaugh went a long monologue today to open his show, about the FBI and the intel community. The gist of it: "I used to think they simply got it wrong about Saddam's WMD. I wondered how could they screw up so bad? But now I have to wonder: Did they knowingly lie?"

This has interesting implications. Presidential security is the fiefdom of the Secret Service, not the FBI. Which means they don't have the conflict of interest, and will be a lot less hesitant to investigate...and shoot, if needed.

These guys think nothing of assassinating foreign government heads. Doesn't take a lot of imagination to see them thinking that Trump is more dangerous than that Libyan leader. Just another coup.

But it would require an amazingly shallow self righteousness for a deep state member to let a record be made of their talking about organizing an internal assassination. This may seem difficult to believe but it fits into the fact that they are still talking about Mueller being about to demand Trump be interviewed -- and that's totally incompatible with the complete failure of Mueller to find (and leak) any real scandalous information. The deep state must be shaking with fear.

That anonymous high ranking FBI official who's blowing the whistle should totally come into the open and use his real name, because while the conspirators might be willing to murder a sitting President, they would never dare to attack an FBI agent. That simply isn't done!

Anonymous Raw Cringe January 24, 2018 2:53 PM  

Of course the "Anonymous FBI official" shouldn't use his real name, if he exists. That's not the point. The point is that without a name, the whole instapundit article could be just made up literal fake news fanfiction just like the mainstream media loves to do, just like anons on imageboards love to do, et cetera. Distracting from the point by pointing out that the FBI official if named would face unpleasant repercussions does nothing to alleviate the real lack of evidence that this report by itself has.

As a narrative, it's believable enough, but the instapundit article does nothing to give me or any rational person any GREATER confidence than we would have had before that the FBI might have discussed taking out Trump with violence. Anyone with two brain cells to rub together had already imagined that possibility. This report of an "anonymous FBI agent" adds nothing. It's exactly as credible as my personal imagination.

Or if I'm wrong, and the report does add something to the probability that the FBI discussed assassinating Trump, then you should respond by pointing THAT out.

The critical importance of the True Pundit blog post is that it brings what so many have privately imagined out into public discussion, a critically important first step toward making such a thought into a topic of official public investigation.

I'll fake speak for Scott Adams:

As awesome as it would be, Trump himself would never lay the smack down in a speech because it would be 'negative.' He would say positive things, then hand it off to a spokesperson to say the negative things.

We can still hope for mass arrests at the State of the Union from the 4000-9000 sealed indictments, though. That would focus the attention.

Okay, I read the article. I watched the video, even.

The Senator says that "we", as in, him and presumably other congresscritters, have an informant, who says there was a secret society holding offsite meetings from the Justice Department.

While that's already amazing and the biggest news story in a long time, it doesn't say anything about whether the True Pundit informant, who makes bolder claims of a conspiracy to injure or kill the President, is legit or not.

In reading between the lines, it certainly seems plausible that they could be the same person. But, still, there's no evidence.

Hillary's emails are all out there, and SOMEBODY has them ... even if no foreign national succeeded in spying on her.

and if whomever she was corresponding with was doing regular backups on their mail server ( as any enterprise level org would ), then even if the external mail servers got wiped her stuff would still be on backup.

so ... where are the FBI's backups?

Regarding the "missing" texts - they are only missing from the FBI primary and backup systems. But they are not missing.

Okay, okay, sperg time. I feel like I'm probably preaching to the choir here and that you already know this, but you're picking at my words, so I feel forced to clarify.

Let's say that as of before Election Day I thought the probability of there being an assassination plot against Trump from within the deep state was 5%, based on the ideas that (1) there's probably a deep state, (2) they're probably experts at assassination, and (3) the things Trump said during the campaign seemed to go against the probable goals of the deep state.

Then when Trump tweeted about being spied on, the probability in my mind went up, let's say to 10%.

With the "insurance policy" comment, it went up drastically, and then again with the "secret society" revelation, and yet again with the 50000 "missing" text messages.

So today the probability in my mind that there was an assassination plot against Trump sits somewhere between 50-70%. Let's call it 60% just to split the difference and get a concrete number.

Reading this True Pundit article leaves my certainty at the same 60% that it was before I read it. It has had no effect, because it gave no new credible information. All it did was allege that there is an informant saying, etc. Something I had already imagined at a 60% probability.

So I think the content of the article could be true, with a certain probability, based on my prior premises. But the article itself doesn't give me anything new.

Anyway, you're clearly winning the rhetorical "battle" here, since you've just put me in the position of sperging out. Good job. No one cares what a sperg says, hmm? If I wanted to be *believed*, I'd need to couch my argument in a Chestertonian aphorism.

I don't fail to understand that. It's just a spergy focus on the trees over the forest. Something I think I have to do to say anything even moderately intelligent.

As for the "me" stuff, it's a habit that comes from regularly talking only to normal people, who generally need new ideas to be framed to them in only the most inoffensive terms. Talking about "me" is supposed to frame my counterarguments to their positions as examples as to how they could do things differently, rather than as direct counterarguments, which in my limited experience has given better results at actually convincing people or at least opening their minds.

The brass balls move would be for Trump to set the meeting with Mueller and have the Secret Service take him into custody on the spot. Trump has known what his enemies are up to for over a year now; he even told them he knew what they were up to when he tweeted that Trump Tower had been wiretapped.

Trump has been slowly turning up the pressure against his enemies, probably hoping that this could all fade away be dealt with quietly for the good of the country. But those conspiring against him have shown that they won't give up, no matter how much of their criminality is exposed. The only logical option is to act decisively against the conspirators and Trump is a very smart man. It's now clear that when he called Mueller an "honorable man" he meant it in the Shakespearean sense.

Sure, the identity of the whistleblower isn't crucial; what's crucial is that his recommendations be acted upon. Charges have been made, but mere allegations are not enough; substantiating them is a job for an investigative agency.

The problem is that the President has no control of large parts of the Executive apparatus. This includes at the very least the FBI, which is supposed to be the goverenment's primary investigatory arm. The CIA is deeply incompetent, and in any case should be kept out of domestic politics. If it should turn out that they are involved, then they must be cleansed along with the FBI. Starting with a mass firing at the FBI would be perceived by the MSM-dominated public as a purge, another "Saturday Night Massacre". It would also prompt corrupt FBI officials to fire their biggest salvos--even if they are self-destructive, because they will think they have nothing to lose in any case. Such a purge can only be initiated after the evidence has been developed so that it can support indictments, and those indictments are issued.

But how do you develop evidence when the most important government investigative agency is in fact criminal? Well, as the FBI informer points out, there may be some agencies that have investigatory powers and could be used against the criminal FBI (cFBI?). The problem is deciding whether they can really be trusted.

I've heard that the Secret Service is pozzed, but no one could object if the President makes changes in the management of the agency designated to protect him. Were I the President, I would separate it out from that abortion, the Department of Homeland Security, and put it directly under me. Then I'd clean house, tell them to get to work, giving them a list of Federal judges that can be relied upon to be honest.

The NSA is, as always, an enigma in this. We know they know. They know we know...etc. They also like to operate sub rosa--that is with plausible deniability. It might be possible for an investigating agency to get them to disgorge the incriminating evidence in a way that can't be directly linked to them. I'm sure Julian Assange is looking for something to do.

A Congressional investigation would be a great thing, but given the quality of our present "representatives" I don't see much hope in that direction.

You know, the FBI being out of control is not exactly something new. It was out of control the entire time it was run by J. Edgar Hoover--which was pretty much forever. Every President from Truman to Kennedy knew that the FBI is its own fiefdom, and answers to no one. Too bad Trump doesn't have a brother who is Attorney General material.

There must be tremendous and reasonable fear of how the masses would react. It's insane, though, anyone would have a single doubt assassination hasn't been discussed endlessly among the Deep State upper and middle echelon. Much of that almost certainly will be reflected in the missing texts and memorialized elsewhere. The big question is how each side will react once documented assassinations discussions surface.

Look at some of the otherwise inexplicable actions taken by senators, congressmen and justices. They probably ask themselves that question constantly. The Deep State fears Trump as much as loathes him because he is the first president with actual "fuck you" money plus he has a huge segment of the country ready to avenge his death.

The Secret Service is surely on top of this. Hopefully, there are no Bush-Clinton-Obama Secret Service agents anymore. If they are all Trump-vetted then it is unlikely that they will allow the FBI to corner him.

Although at this point it would be rather difficult for the FBI to pull off an assassination of the POTUS at this time with the rumors becoming public.

Those are some very good questions; I wish I had satisfying answers. Of all Fed agencies, the NSA alone is absolutely untouchable and unaccountable. It's widely assumed that they listen and they record whatever they want to, but nobody seems clear about why they are doing it. And nobody seriously questions their right to do what they are doing (whatever it is).

There are several layers of obfuscation here. One is "why are they doing it" in the sense of "why are we paying them all this money for server farms?". There is also "why" in the sense of motive: what is their purpose in doing it? Whose purposes do they serve? Who is the information for?

Then there is the whole question of what they are doing. Given the infrastructure we know about (let alone the stuff we don't know about), it's reasonable to conclude they listen to a whole lot of signals traffic. Of that, they record an unknown portion. It's been noted that they are not likely to keep all of it for practical reasons alone, but they have the capacity keep a whole lot of it. What they keep will consist largely of what they consider important.

So what are the priorities of the NSA? The highest priority of any bureaucracy is to protect itself and especially to guard the interests of those who control it. That means that among the communications the NSA would give the most attention to are the communications of its ostensible masters. Any emails, message traffic, or electronic conversation of other sorts between prominent government officials would be among its high priority targets for interception, analysis, and redundant storage. So yes, they almost certainly have all that has been "lost".

But they can't admit that. They are never going to admit that they eavesdrop on the President, or have Hillary Clinton's missing emails, or some FBI lawyer's text messages. Once they admit to having that sort of stuff, people would keep asking...and wondering where it ends. They might even try to cut off the electricity for the server farms. So don't bother asking.

No, the NSA taketh, but like any black hole, it gives nothing up. Were the NSA to decide that it is in that agency's interest for certain lost emails to be found, then they would just turn up. Someone would find them, or leak them--but they wouldn't be formally turned over by the agency or traceable to the agency.

Remember what NSA stands for: No Such Agency.

Re: the NSA

The NSA has a copy of everything. That doesn't mean it is in a useful form, nor does it mean that even if they can get it in a useful form, it is in the country's best interest that they should use it.

You don't want organized crime reading the FBI's texts. Also the FBI's texts are government records. This means that someone along the way set up a texting system for the FBI that the FBI *must* use both to preserve the records and to keep the communications private by encrypting them all before they get on the wire or over the air. Predictably, what the NSA has is the encrypted stream of data.

Now the NSA might now how to break the encryption. They might not. But it's like the Venona intercepts. Would it serve the country well if the NSA admitted it can read the FBI's private communications? Or are we rerunning the Alger Hiss case where the intelligence is used to drop hints in order to recreate the evidence in ways that can be released to the public?

Separately, I recall a small, public ruffling of feathers that Trump had decided not to let go his private security when he entered the White House. I don't recall that he ever did switch over entirely to government security. This always seemed strange. As time goes on, it seems less so.

People have been questioning their right to do so since at least the 70's. That's why officially those records don't exist. Everyone knows it's illegal. As long as it was strictly for national security use and everyone pretended it wasn't being done, they could get away with it.
