Swalwell: GOP trying to 'dirty up' fired FBI deputy director because he knows too much

East Bay Rep. Eric Swalwell told CNN Sunday night that the effort by President Donald Trump's lawyers are trying to discredit the recently fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe because they are worried he may have information to offer Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller in the Russian collusion investigation.

"To me, being a former prosecutor, it looks like they're trying to dirty him up," said Swalwell, a member of the House Intelligence Comittee. "They figure that there's more charges from Mueller coming down the pike and that eventually McCabe is going to be a figure in a trial, and if they can dirty up now, put an asterisk in his role, that could mitigate their exposure."

    I am surprised that no one talks about the fact that before Mueller was appointed Director of the FBI, he was the US Attorney for the Northern California District, AND WHICH IS HEADQUARTERED IN SCAMS FRAUDSFIXSO.

    In fact Willie Brown in the last few months mentioned in his column in the Sunday SF Chronicle that when Mueller was being seriously considered for Director of the FBI, and which he did end up getting, Mueller came and visited him and asked for WB's recommendation.

    As far as Mueller being appointed the US Attorney for the Northern California District, that was primarily due to the influence of federal judge Marilyn Hall Patel, and although I am sure it also had the approval of WB and Dianne Feinstein, and who were obviously extremely confident that Mueller would only prosecute conservatives, and would leave high ranking liberals alone.

    And then when the position of FBI Director became available, SF's MHP used her extreme political power to also help arrange for Mueller to get that too.

    Even though San Francisco has only about one-fourth of one percent of the total US population, it dominates the world of sleaze, lies, fraud, phoniness, sociopaths, psychopaths, parasites, sophisticated scam artists, and white collar criminal activity in general, and even more than the Detroit area in the 1950's dominated the auto industry.

    (In fact, the strangest thing I found about the Bernard Madoff situation was that it did not seem to have any major links to the SF Bay area.)

    To give just a few examples, O.J. Simpson was born and raised in SF; Jim Jones, and later of Jonestown infamy, before moving to Jonestown, Guyana made the SF-Oakland area his headquarters; Monica Lewinsky and Chandra Levy both had considerable links to SF; and before he became famous, Charles Manson spent a lot of time in the SF-Berkeley area and recruiting his "family" of criminals.

    And I could give plenty of other examples. Detroit manufactures cars, Nebraska produces wheat and corn, MIT produces mathematicians, Caltech produces physicists, and San Francisco manufactures phonies, frauds, scumbags, parasites, scam artists, professional pathological liars, con men, sleazy politicians, paid off political hack judges, and crooked lawyers.

    In my above post, I forgot to mention San Francisco is also the world leader in producing and glorifying demagogues, charlatans, and bloodsucking leeches who pretend to be great liberals and wonderful humanitarians.

    And SF also deserves an Olympic gold medal in the category of extreme willingness to declare that a multi million dollar arson fire was caused by bad luck if the building owner is politically connected or one of the big boys in or connected to City Hall gets an under the table bribe.

  3. By MW:

    Actually, the problem with the people in the FBI is that they know far too little, or at least they pretend that they know virtually nothing,

    For instance, for decades J. Edgar Hoover insisted that there was no such thing as organized crime in the US.

    And when Dexter Jacobsen was shot to death in San Francisco while on his way to the local FBI office to discuss corruption in SF City Hall, the FBI believed, or at least pretended to believe, that he was killed by a random shot, and not by a murder arranged by SF's politicians, judges, and most prominent lawyers.

    Similarly, when extremely prominent SF lawyer and politician Dennis Natali and his client, and who were both engaged in ongoing discussions with the FBI concerning illegal backroom fixes in exchange for under the table bribes being paid to the big boys in SF City Hall, were murdered virtually simultaneously, the FBI pretended to believe that the two murders were just bad luck, and supposedly not an attempt to silence witnesses.

    (Dianne Feinstein "knows" that it is "best" and "preferable" that the head of the local office of the US Attorney be selected by someone such as herself, and not by the White House, and so that way his decisions and "thinking" will reflect local, in other words San Francisco, "standards.")

    The "experts," lawyers, and "geniuses" in the FBI evidently have still not figured out that when a big office building goes up in flames at 3AM in the morning, and especially if it had major asbestos problems, most of the time the fire resulted from arson arranged by a "torch" working for organized crime, and not from bad luck.

    The FBI is basically a big law firm, and even the statements and opinions of the village idiot should be taken much more seriously than that of most lawyers.

  4. Wow! Wow! McCabe was rebuked by the Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR). Mr. Swalwell should look into that. The OPR does not rule against a person unless there is overwhelming, irrefutable evidence of wrongdoing. But Mr. Swalwell and Mr. Schiff and Ms. Pelosi are spin doctors, so away they go.

    At some point, "the truth" is so lost, that democracy can't function. Mr. Swalwell knows exactly what he is doing and it is shameful.

    In regard to the "standards" of the FBI.

    When organized crime kingpin M. L. "Larry The Liar and Arlington National Cemetery" Lawrence decided he wanted to become the US Ambassador to Switzerland, to get said position he needed to first be approved for being granted a national security clearance. And since to receive a national security clearance he needed to first pass a FBI background check, my original thought was him subjecting himself to a FBI background check would cause his sleaziness to be exposed, and therefore he would end up in prison.

    (Altho Lawrence was one of the sleaziest, phoniest, and most organized crime connected people in the entire country, however for decades he had managed to convince lot of gullible people into thinking he was a legitimate businessman, town father, and all around great guy. And he and his associates, and including his lawyers, had a long history of doing absolutely anything and everything necessary, and including arranging murders and multimillion dollar arson fires and providing under the table bribes to judges, to keep the truth from coming out.)

    However I originally thought the FBI's background check on Lawrence would be the end of him and cause him to end up in prison. But friends with far more knowledge than myself of how government works told me Lawrence had nothing to worry about. They told me that most government agencies, AND INCLDING THE FBI, had a secret system of two sets of books, and that for someone as extremely an important source of money to the politicians as Lawrence, any negative information that came up in a background check would be buried, kept secret, and not disclosed, so in other words it was a sure thing that Lawrence would pass the FBI's "background check," and no matter what came up.

    Actually, it sounds like the FBI uses the same "standards" in its "investigations" as a lot of Alameda County's agencies, and such as for instance the DA's office, County Counsel's office, and Public Works Agency.

    Some more information in regard to organized crime kingpin M. L. "Larry The Liar" Lawrence.

    While Lawrence was still alive, and also even before the idea came up of making him the US Ambassador to Switzerland, I spoke with some of the lower ranking employees in both the Border Patrol and US Customs about him.

    NOTE: This was back when Immigration (and its sub department the Border Patrol) and US Customs were separate agencies. Now they are combined into one super department, specifically ICE.

    Those employees told me that they were well aware that Lawrence was an organized crime money launderer, a drug smuggler, and a trafficker in undocumented aliens, but the word among the lower ranking employees was that he had bought so much political protection due to the huge amounts of bribes and election campaign contributions he provided to the big boys, that therefore anyone who arrested him would be fired on trumped up charges.
