Given everything that we’ve learned about former FBI Director James Comey over the last year, it’s not hard to believe there are problems at the agency.
One former agent who has been at odds with Deputy Director McCabe indicates that the problem is worse than most people know.
Circa News reports:
A former FBI agent battling Deputy Director McCabe said there is a ‘cancer’ inside the FBI
When the FBI launched an investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, one of the bureau’s top former counterterrorism agents believed that FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe would have to recuse himself from the investigation.
Former Supervisory Special Agent Robyn Gritz was one of the bureau’s top intelligence analysts and terrorism experts but resigned from the bureau five years ago after she said she was harassed and her career was blocked by top FBI management. She filed a formal sexual discrimination complaint against the bureau in 2013 and it was Flynn, among many others, who publicly came to her aide.
In her first on-camera interview she described the retaliation from McCabe and others in the bureau as “vicious.”
A 16-year veteran with outstanding work performance reviews and accomplishments, Gritz alleges McCabe, along with other senior management, made it impossible for her to do her job and obstructed her ability to move up the ranks.
It appears that the intelligence community is part of the swamp. Certainly, there are some good people there but others clearly need to be replaced by Trump.
