NOT EVEN a week has passed since the FBI announced the firing of the agent in charge of the alleged kidnap scheme of Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer as the embattled agency has announced the firing of another high profile agent, this time in charge of the US Gymnast rape investigation:
"The Federal Bureau of Investigation has fired the special agent who failed to investigate the allegations of sexual abuse first made against former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar in 2015, The Washington Post reported.
Michael Langeman, who was a supervisory special agent in the FBI’s Indianapolis office at the time, interviewed gymnast McKayla Maroney about the alleged abuse in 2015, but a recent report from the Justice Department Inspector General’s office shows that the FBI did not investigate her claims and later lied to the OIG investigators about their failure to do so."
An FBI agent lie? You don't say. The agent was fired before today's testimony on Capitol Hill, meaning he couldn't be called to the stand to either explain his actions, how it was allowed to happen, or who else in the FBI is responsible.
Now that's what I call call "timing".
As a direct result of the FBI covering up for Nassar, dozens more young women were molested, including some of the most famous athletes in the world.
It's yet another black eye for an agency that has suffered a massive loss in credibility.
Some of the testimony yesterday was utterly damning:
"After telling my entire story of abuse to the FBI in the summer of 2015, not only did the FBI not report my abuse, but when they eventually documented my report seventeen months later, they made entirely false claims about what I said," gymnast McKayla Maroney testified, visibly angry.
She said when she read the Office of Inspector General Report, she was shocked at the "narrative" the FBI had "chosen to fabricate."
"They chose to lie about what I said and protect a serial child molester, rather than protect not only me, but countless others. My story is one in which special agent Jay Abbott and his subordinates did not want you to hear," Maroney said.
Among other terrible crimes, McKayla relates the time that Nassar gave her a sleeping pill for a flight -- and then woke up to find Nassar on top of her, molesting her as usual."
"The report, which confirmed that the FBI knew of allegations as early as 2015, condemned the FBI for "[failing] to respond to allegations of sexual abuse of athletes by former USA Gymnastics physician Lawrence Gerard Nassar with the urgency that the allegations required." In the time it took the FBI to conduct a thorough investigation, Nassar assaulted over 70 young athletes."
Thorough investigation? Gee, that's one way of putting it.
Throughout 2016, while Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page was under intense surveillance by Comey's FBI, Dr. Larry Nassar was not.
Strong priorities there fellas, priorities.
It should be noted that no one in the FBI - including Abbott, the agent who was convinced to turn his head for a lucrative security job once he retired from the FBI - has yet to be charged for any crime.
So there was a "protest" Saturday in DC to challenge the on-going imprisonment of rioters from Jan 6th. Only thing was that there appeared to be more FBI agents then protesters.
Indeed, the only picture making the rounds today were Feds arresting... another fed who was "undercover":
Beyond dressing up like the bad guys from WARHAMMER, the hilarity of the terror on the under-cover cop's face speaks a thousand words.... of ineptitude. To be fair, there was one more pic taken during the protest making the rounds of our cleverly disguised FBI at work:
You get a cookie if you can guess which ones are of the top men. It should be noted that 12 of the 18 "conspirators" in the alleged kidnapping plot against MI guv Gretchen Whitmer were... FBI agents.
Meanwhile over the same weekend in gang-controlled Chicago, 55 more people were shot, 9 fatally. At this point, over 3,100 people have been shot in the city between January 1, 2021, and September 7, 2021.
I know it's a wacky idea but maybe, just maybe, our tax money would be better spent if these guys would try arresting some one else besides themselves. Maybe some real, actual, criminals doing real actual crimes....
