I think Trump is playing a very dangerous game. He is starting a war with the FBI. Does he not realize that he WILL NOT be president forever ?? Right now he is covered to some degree by executive privilege. But once he is no longer president ???

How deep do you think the FBI will have to dig into Trump enterprises to find enough evidence to send Trump and possibly his children to prison ??

I would like to know more about the Office of Professional Responsibility. Ms. Google tells us that the Office is chaired by Robin Ashton, who was an Eric Holder appointment, but Robin, herself, has been embroiled in controversy. It was Ms. Ashton who bore the brunt of the decision to fire McCabe. But here's the kicker (from Wiki):

OPR has a policy of not reporting or investigating complaints for violation of duty of candor towards the tribunal that may be resolved in court. It does not publish this policy in the Federal Register. OPR does not publish agendas of its meetings or keep minutes of its meetings.

What am I missing here? Did Sessions have something on Ashton? AND who are the other members of this tribunal??

Read about Ashton here: Appointments and Resignations - Chief Counsel and Director of the Office of Professional Responsibility: Who Is Robin Ashton? - AllGov - News

The FBI made the recommendation of firing McCabe. You understand that right?
Thanks from Jimgorn

And you honestly believe the office that made the recommendation wasn't in any way, form or fashion, pressured by the administration ????

You can't possibly be that naive.

The office is made up of career life long civil servants. Yes I believe Trump has zero influence on them.

Unless you happen to be a “career long civil servant” that was privy to Comey’s extemporaneous notes concerning Don the Con’s obstruction attempts, right ?

You people are absolutely fucking hilarious !!!!

When the OMB, also staff by career life long civil servants, points out that something King Trump has done will cost this country trillions of dollars, you discount them as partisan hacks !!! I had to come back and add this thought. But now, after Trump has spent a year calling the FBI corrupt and beyond corrupt, you want us to believe they have suddenly found their integrity ?? LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

The so-called "internal affairs" office is actually the Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) and it is part of the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) responsible for investigating attorneys employed by the DOJ who have been accused of misconduct or crimes in their professional functions. That department is made up of ATTORNEYS--lifelong or not.
Like every other branch of the government there is little or NO transparency. I did quite a bit of research on this body and all I could find is that Robin Ashton is the department chair. NOWHERE (at least that I could find and I'm pretty darn good at research) is there a list of the current members of that body.

Robin Ashton has been the source of controversy, going back a decade or more.
In fact, studies have been done as far back as 2004 and have found this:

The Office has lost touch with its original mission and no longer effectively serves the Director and the FBI as a whole. The Commission further states that OPR has become an unfortunate lightning rod both outside and within the Bureau as a perceived source of unfairness and favoritism that adversely impacts moral at a time in FBI history when the US depends more than ever on one of the world's finest law enforcement agencies.

Do not think for one minute that a commission within the DOJ can't be corrupt. You can't be that naive.

This whole thing does not pass the smell test.

Open the PDF and read for yourself. This is only ONE study.

Well believe this. McCabe kept memos that was just now reported on the news.

And it only gets better. He's been offered a job by Congressman Mark Pocan (D-WI), for a few days just long enough to stay qualified for his pension.
