An FBI agent named Josh Campbell recently announced in an article for the New York Times that he is leaving the agency in disgust over what’s happening. Of course, he failed to mention the fact that he was a special assistant to James Comey.
Now we have learned that he has already got a new job lined up at CNN. How convenient!

‘FAKE NEWS meets OBAMAGate’: Comey assistant leaves FBI for CNN
On Friday, a former FBI agent wrote an eye-catching opinion piece in the New York Times, claiming that he had retired from the Bureau because it had received unfair “political attacks” from Republicans in Congress.
Other than its entirely disingenuous premise (alleging Republicans are attacking the FBI as a whole, rather than investigating alleged misdeads under leaders James Comey and Andrew McCabe), the piece leaves out important information.
Nowhere in the opinion article does Campbell reveal the fact that he was James Comey’s special assistant. Campbell presents himself as someone who is unattached to the current political situation, leaving out the fact that he has a huge vested interest in defending Comey.
But it gets worse. Following the op-ed, John Cardillo, a host for The Rebel and former law enforcement officer, claimed that Campbell also left out the fact that he had already accepted an offer to become a CNN analyst.
My FBI sources tell me the real reason the writer of this piece, Josh Campbell, one of @comey and #McCabe's allies, is leaving the Bureau is because he was offered and accepted a VERY lucrative gig with @CNN to throw shade on the scandal.https://t.co/6wQ2bGM4TS
