Released FBI Letter: Peter Strozk's "Repeated Selfishness Has Called Into Question the Credibility of the FBI"

Peter Strzok is suing the DOJ and FBI alleging that his firing was politically motivated and unjustified.

As part of its defense, the FBI released a draft letter explaining why he was fired.


David Bowdich, who was deputy director of the bureau when he penned the brutally harsh draft of the dismissal letter, told Strzok the damage he caused to the bureau would last for years. He referred specifically to Strzok's use of "an FBI device," an apparent reference to the shocking text messages sent on bureau cell phones between Strzok and his paramour, Lisa Page, in which vowed to stop former President Trump from being elected in 2016.

"While there is no doubt your 21 years of service to the organization cannot and should not be erased, it is difficult to fathom the repeated, sustained errors of judgment you made while serving as the lead agent in two of the most high profile investigations in the country," Bowdich wrote in the August 8, 2018 letter. "Though the Office of the Inspector General found no evidence of bias impacted any of your or the FBI's investigative actions or decisions, your sustained pattern of bad judgment in the use of an FBI device has called into question for many of the decisions made during both the Clinton e-mail investigation and the initial states of the Russian Collusion investigation."

"In short, your repeated selfishness has called into question the credibility of the entire FBI."

Note the FBI lies and claims that Strzok's maneuverings did not impact the Russiagate or Clinton email investigations.

They must be defunded.


The draft letter was an attachment in a DOJ response in Strzok's wide-ranging federal lawsuit alleging violation of his right to privacy and wrongful termination. Strzok's attorneys deposed Bowdich and are now trying to depose Trump and FBI Director Christopher Wray in a bid to show his firing was political. The DOJ attached the draft letter to rebut the idea that Strzok's firing was for political reasons.

Bowdich has since left the bureau and is vice president of global security for Disney. Strzok, despite being humiliated by the exposure of his emails, extramarital affair, and repeated bungling of investigations, has written a book and frequently appears on hard-left cable news channel MSNBC to defend the FBI against accusations of political bias.


...

"In my 23 years in the FBI, I have not seen a more impactful series of missteps which called into question the entire organization and more thoroughly damaged the reputation of the organization," wrote Bowdich. "In our role as FBI employees we sometimes make unpopular decisions, but the public should be able to examine our work and not have to question motives."

The two-page letter ends with a blistering reference to Strzok's failure as a public servant.

"As Deputy Assistant Director, you were expected to be a leader who was beyond reproach and set an example for not only our direct subordinates, but others throughout the organization who watched and observed your behaviors and actions," Bowdich wrote. "You failed to do so repeatedly and put your own interests [above] the interests of the organization. Though it pains me to do so, it is for this reason that I am dismissing you from the rolls of the FBI."

Sergei Millian, the man that the Clinton-connected Brookings Institute paper-pusher and suspected Russian spy Iggy Danchenko falsely claimed to be his source, alleges that Strzok is a "racist coward and that he tried to "entrap" him three times. Via Hans Mahncke:

Meanwhile, the Russian oligarch who actually is involved in all of this, Oleg Deripaska -- at least, he is a former employer of Christopher Steele --was just indicted.


Putin-allied Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska, who previously employed British ex-spy Christopher Steele, was charged by the Justice Department with conspiring to violate U.S. sanctions imposed on him and his company.

Deripaska was indicted Thursday for sanctions evasion related to his Basic Element Limited company, which was sanctioned by the Treasury Department in 2018 for operating on behalf of the Russian government.


The Russian was charged in a 31-page unsealed indictment alongside fellow Russian Natalia Mikhaylovna Bardakova and U.S. citizen Olga Shriki, who were accused of assisting in the scheme. The trio was accused of violating the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, which could land them a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison.

Who was working as Russian Agent again?

Trump? Or Christopher Steele?


...

Deripaska's link to another criminal case, special counsel John Durham's indictment of Steele source Igor Danchenko, is also notable.

Steele was working for Deripaska before, during, and after his time targeting Trump in 2016. Deripaska had paid Steele to investigate future Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort after accusing the GOP operative of stealing millions from him, and Steele sought help from the opposition research firm Fusion GPS in early 2016.

Steele was soon hired to put his dossier together by Fusion, which itself was hired by Clinton campaign general counsel March Elias and was paid by the Clinton campaign.

One more thing: A judge nearly dismissed the perjury charge against Iggy Danchenko, because the DC Deep State is of course very protective of its own.

The judge did not dismiss the charges ultimately -- but says he remains "skeptical." Which is a little alarming, and maybe a sign that he will be ruling against Durham on every point the defense raises.


The judge presiding over the case against Igor Danchenko, a source for British ex-spy Christopher Steele's discredited dossier on former President Donald Trump, ruled he won't dismiss the indictment but expressed skepticism about some of the false statements charges brought by special counsel John Durham.

The Russian-born lawyer has pleaded not guilty and had an attempt to dismiss Durham's case against him shot down in court on Thursday by Judge Anthony Trenga of the Eastern District of Virginia.

"The motion is denied," the judge ruled during the Alexandria court hearing. However, the judge said he would revisit his ruling after Durham's team had presented its full case during the October trial. Trenga, a George W. Bush appointee who has sat on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, added that "I think it's an extremely close call, particularly with count one" related to longtime Hillary Clinton ally Chuck Dolan.

The November 2021 indictment said Danchenko anonymously sourced a fabricated claim about Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort to Dolan, who spent years, including 2016, doing work in Russia. Danchenko also allegedly lied to the FBI about a phone call he claimed he received from Sergei Millian, who Danchenko claimed told him about a conspiracy of cooperation between Trump and the Russians.

The judge said he "has to conclude at this point" that he couldn't say definitively that Danchenko's statement related to Dolan was literally true, concluding that "there are sufficient arguments of context" to allow the trial to move forward.

Trenga also said that, regarding the Millian-related charges, he "can't conclude that there is an undisputed fact that is not actionable" through criminal charges.

The indictment argued that Danchenko "stated falsely that he had never communicated with" Dolan "about any allegations contained" in the dossier, while "in truth and in fact, and as Danchenko well knew, Danchenko sourced one or more specific allegations" in the dossier anonymously to Dolan.

They mean he lied and hid that his source was Clinton ally Chuck Dolan.

...

An FBI agent had asked Danchenko: "But you had never talked to [Dolan] about anything that showed up in the dossier right?" The defendant had replied, "No." The agent followed up, "You don't think so?" Danchenko replied, "No. We talked about, you know, related issues perhaps but no, no, no, nothing specific."

The defense is saying that "talked" does not include "communicated by writing."

Boy I sure wish I had this kind of extremely solicitous judge looking to throw out defamation charges made against me.

But I didn't. I'm not protected by the Deep State.

Men go to see RomComs because they're going with a chick they want to bang. And chicks go to RomComs because they want to laugh and see girl and the guy fall in love. Guess what a gay movie lacks?

There have been a number of gay characters/themed movies that were commercial/critical successes: Birdcage, Brokeback Mountain, Philadelphia, Bohemian Rhapsody to name a few. I think talent, writing, directing, etc. has something to do with it.

81 Yep, as many have noted already, all of this post just confirms, yet again, what garbage these institutions are, meaning the people currently staffing them.

I especially love the farcical "IG" at DOJ, who takes implausibly, laughably improper and clearly goal-directed stunts by "investigators" and blandly terms them reasonably investigative judgement calls.

And this Bowditch idiot tries the same, with "lapses of judgement". Look, it's obvious neither Strzok nor any of the other players here are particularly intelligent, but "lapses of judgement" aren't what happened. Duh.

But there's no hope. The legal cult and the law enforcement cult have a mostly submissive and stupid populace, and no opposition party or any other adults, to worry about. There'll be no meaningful changes of course here.

Well as a non gay I'm not sure how they do their relationships, but I'd hazard a guess that it isn't how women do, so forcing it into a RomCom mold is probably not going to work.

Certainly a film of how two straight men become friends is not going to fit into the structure - there'd be about 99 percent less dialog for a start.

Well, the real crime is the conspiracy. Each person contributed but nobody did enough on their own that wasn't in keeping with their official duties--or at least it can be argued that way if we're not going to actually charge people who contributed and signed off on a vastly fraudulent FISA application which threatens prosecution for the equivalent of denying due process, as you are trying somebody without their knowledge.

The amount of direct fraud that had to go into the FISA is a clue that the Patriot Act is not the first cause. The first cause is the corruption that were allowed to steep in such powers. It's when people take for granted that they get to try people "ex parte" and so what!

It's the lack of sacred mission that Washington DC has allowed to fester, until it all becomes about grifting for the people on the top and retirements for the middle.

Just struck me, that DC is structured like a syndicate.

155 I had a surreal HR training session at work today. It was eerily communist.

It contained messages on how we could always work for the best of the corporation both on the clock and off the clock, to always be repping the brand. It had video messages from our dear leader interspersed throughout.

One change in the core values involved changing from a bullet point of being edgy and individualistic to being courageous enough to report when other employees when they were not in compliance with standards. The corporate manager tasked with teaching was wearing a rainbow tutu skirt, to show how fun the place is to work at.

We were forced to take a selfie in a dress up hat and post on the company Facebook Workplace. At the end, we were ordered to make a song reflecting the new bullet points from HR and perform it so that it could be embarrassingly posted on Workplace, as some sort of ritual humiliation.

At that point I just got up and left, as it felt very weird when they said "Everyone has to do it." So I said f*ck it and left.

170 Bound. I don't hate it, but it has not aged particularly well. Written and directed by those wretched Wachoski trannies, it's lesbian storyline comes off a bit exploitative, like "hey, everyone, here's two girls kissing," rather than being a straightforward, gritty story that involves lesbian romance. That's obviously a subjective judgment though. Also, Meg Tilly is nice to look at, but she has a voice that makes me want to sleep with Fran Drescher.

******

Peter Brimlow posted a two-page answer in Forbes to the question of what should be the optimal total government spending back in either 1994 or 1995 and the Federal Reserve BoGs said that the study Brimlow was citing was the best study done on the topic.

It turns out that 22% was the optimal spending level for the state, local, and feds together, and if this had happened for the time span under study (1947 to 1989), the GDP would have been twice the size it was in 1989.

We're losing about 1.5% or so percentage points of growth every year we're not at 22%. Imagine having an economy that is around $50 trillion right now. A lot of problems would either be mitigated to a considerable degree or not exist at all. All this, of course, assumes that the politicians wouldn't screw this up, which we all know isn't the case, regrettably

I haven't had a ton of optimism about our country's trajectory for a long time. But it was in the middle of this whole sordid affair with Comey, Mueller, Peterstroke, Page, McCabe, Contreras, Brennan, Clapper, Sessions, Barr, Graham, Weissmann, Horowitz, Durham, et. al. that I just wrote the fuckin' thing off.

Once it became clear what the government was capable of, and that they could do it with impunity, and that both parties and all intelligence agencies would conspire together, and that they could do so with impunity because nobody would or could stop them... what's the point? You can't fix something this broken.

The whole thing needs to go. Unfit for purpose.

232 "In short, your repeated selfishness has called into question the credibility of the entire FBI."

I've never had any questions about the credibility of the Feebs. My most cynical suspicions have proven inadequate at ever turn.

238 I haven't lost faith in my country. I've lost faith in the government / institutions that are trying to destroy our exceptionalism. That's mostly been the case since the beginning though it was more green than anti American. I consider it a Luke warm war right now . I also believe more than half the population is on the right side whether they realize it or not. It's not like we are a 20% minority.

242 Watching a JCVD movie called "Double Impact" from 1991. Twins separated at 6 months when their parents were brutally murdered by Chinese gangsters, JCVD1 and JCVD2 grow up in separate worlds, but reunite to avenge their parents.

Pretty good so far. JCVD's final opponent in "Bloodsport" is in this one as one of murderous Chinese gangsters.

What they want you to think:

David Bowdich, who was deputy director of the bureau when he penned the brutally harsh draft of the dismissal letter, told Strzok the damage he caused to the bureau would last for years.

The reality?:

The letter contained one sentence, "You're fired."

Yeah, I don't suppose it's fair to say I've lost faith in the American people completely. I still have a tiny little ember of hope that large numbers of Americans will push back, and right the ship - but it's looking pretty bad.

As to the US' government and it's large private institutions? Nah, bruh. we're done here. That shit is *not* fixable. Even the Salvation Army works for the Communists now.

If the people of this country ever fix this country, it'll mean its a different country. QED.

To add insult to injury, next year McTurtle and Luntz-McCarthy will hold a couple of hearings, move things around a bit on the org chart of the Stasi, then move on to tax cuts for Chinese businesses and arms dealers. You get what you vote for.

He also plays two lead roles in Maximum Risk, and Replicant*. JCVD is two stars for the price of one.

Relatives in FL looking for contributions of bleach, deodorant, water, Gatorade, baby items, non-perishable food, garbage bags, towels, plastic containers, bodywash, shampoo, toothpaste, tooth brushes, clothing, dish soap, hand soap, paper towels, and toilet paper. Basic stuff they need desperately.

I'm in the process of watching all of his flicks. Just watched "JCVD" from 2008 the other night. The one where he's trapped in a hostage situation. It was surprisingly good.
