The Honest, Well-Meaning FBI

Byron York in the Examiner examines how the FBI relied heavily on the Christopher Steele-concocted “Trump dossier” to present to the FISA court to get their illegal surveillance warrant to spy on Carter Page. York gets into all the specifics on how the FBI used the dossier even though they knew that Steele had lied to them and was not credible, and therefore the dossier itself was not credible.

But York shows how faithful he is in the “integrity” and well-meaningness of FBI officials, when he seems to go along with the Grassley-Graham Senate memo on this issue, asserting that regardless of knowing that Steele lied to them the FBI “kept faith” and believed Steele anyway. Actually, I think it’s Byron York whose faith in the FBI (and in other national security apparatchiks) causes him to not doubt their sincerity and forthrightness. Now, I’m not accusing anyone of anything, but would it be a huge surprise if we heard that FBI agents took the unreliable dossier to the FISA court knowing that it was unreliable, that they knowingly presented a false and extremely questionable item of “evidence” to the court to falsely get a FISA warrant? Is that too hard to believe? Now, I’m not accusing anyone of anything, but…

All you have to do is read these recent articles by James Bovard on the history of FBI shenanigans.

The Hill: Destroying, suppressing evidence is FBI standard procedure

The Hill: Yes, the FBI is America’s secret police

USA Today: Comey Firing justly knocks FBI off its pedestal

And on the FBI’s encouraging young Muslim patsies to commit jihad so the FBI can thwart their own plots, see Glenn Greenwald, Trevor Aaronson, Petra Bartosiewicz, Craig Monteilh, and Cora Currier.

And the FBI people actually swear or affirm an oath to support and defend the U.S. Constitution. So, they either haven’t actually read or studied it, or they do know what they’ve actually sworn or affirmed to support and defend, but don’t care.

I think that Byron York of the Examiner is like many faithful, indoctrinated Americans who really believe in these government institutions. But, it would be helpful if York and all the other faithful members of the government’s obedient flock would read Robert Higgs, who pointed out, If men were angels…
