Attorney General Bill Barr recently asked a question that all Americans should be asking: How did we get to the point where . . . the evidence is now that the president was falsely accused of colluding with the Russians and accused of being treasonous and accused of being a Russian Agent? Barr added that the evidence now shows the accusations were without a basis and that two years of his administration have been dominated by allegations that have now been proven false.
To answer that question, we have to go back and look at two dysfunctional relationships the FBI had with confidential informants. In both cases, the FBI was duped into working for the informant rather than the other way around.
The FBI should have learned its lesson from the spectacular scandal surrounding Whitey Bulger, the kingpin of the notorious Winter Hill gang in Boston whose work as an FBI informant allowed him to expand his criminal empire. As we are now seeing with Christopher Steele, of Steele dossier infamy, the FBI learned nothing from the Bulger case and failed to follow the guidelines put in place to prevent what happened with Bulger from happening again.
Bulgers Double-Cross In the fall of 1975, FBI agent John Connolly met with Bulger in the agents car on an abandoned Boston street corner. What would follow was the FBIs greatest scandal involving a confidential informant subverting the vast powers of the government in order to target his enemies. This stain on the history of the Department of Justice should have led to effective reforms but instead it only foreshadowed more of the same.

Well, when one of We pleebs ‘break the rules’, that usually involves a hefty $ fine, if not jail-time.
Wake me if any perk walks vs. Deep State (knock me over w/a feather vs. Cankles\Zero) hit the news before Trump is outta office.
The FBI has been dirty for a long time, and its not just the leadership.
Any day now. At most a couple weeks. Four to six weeks, for sure.
And who was involved with both cases? Mueller.
Wake me up when you post an article about things happening and some idiot clown doesn’t show up and whine “nothings happening”. ;^)
