I was listening to the Jesse Kelly show yesterday. Kelly was talking about the FBI agent who was escorted out of the building. I hadn't heard about that, but I immediately knew it to be more than it seemed.
Apparently a cat named Tim Thibalt got tossed out of the FBI HQ for his role in pressuring Facebook to censor any story about Hunter Biden's laptop prior to the election. Those on our side cheered; justice is being served! But is it?
First, as Kelly observed, every agent is escorted out of the building when they leave employment with the FBI. We don't know this guy was fired - he might have been offered early retirement and will still get his pension. And even if sacked he undoubtedly has a lucrative position waiting for him out there - University big wig, news analyst for CNN, political career, maybe a Congressional run in a safe district. He will not pay for this.
And there is almost no chance he will be prosecuted.
So the frog march may have been more of an honor guard. Kelly was a high level guy, heading up the field office in D.C.!
But wait! There's more!
Donald Trump has stated that Mr. Thibault was present at the raid on Mar-A-Lago.
Fox news disputes Trump's claim, but I rather suspect they have no way of knowing this. Certainly Fox has become less than supportive of Donald Trump in recent times.
And apparently an update to the story says Thibolt was allowed to resign instead of being fired.
Now why is that, do you suppose?
While Congress could supeona him regardless of his status with the bureau, they are less likely to do so if he is no longer in the employ of the FBI. Also, this gives the FIBbers cover; they can claim they realized they had a problem and dealt with it. In short, it's a cya moment and little more.
How many other actions were taken against a sitting President by Mr. Thibolt and his co-conspirators? Who else was working for partisan ends in the FBI? Who knew about this, and when did they know it?
What did Wray know? Garland?
What did Thibolt actually say to Mark Zuckerberg, for that matter, to get him to censor the Biden Laptop story?
These are allegations serious as a heart attack.
Remember, they claimed this was "Russian disinformation" in keeping with the lie that Trump was colluding with the Russians, a lie that has been exploded since the original Mueller investigation opened.
FBI whistleblowers went to Sen. Chuck Grassley and others with complaints about hyper-partisanship at top levels of the FBI.
I myself was censored at Facebook over this story. I was informed it was "disinformation" and it was not going to appear to anybody.
A search on Bing turned up just one result when I asked about Thibolt and the Mar-A-Lago raid. Interesting; Trump - who had a lawyer present - is simply ignored over this. You would think the media would at least report his allegations. But no. Only Fox did and they just dismissed the claim out of hand. Something still smells of a cover up. If there was any evidence to the contrary they would have reported this and said "Trump lies again!" Silence is quite noisy here.
(BTW the DOJ admits some of the files seized were under attorney-client privilege. I guess basic civil rights do not apply to Donald J. Trump.)
Increasingly it looks like we have a nest of vipers in our national security and policing operations. They openly, actively manipulated the election. This is the stuff of banana republics.
And the only way anything will come of it is if the GOP wins big in November, and perhaps not even then. Remember - the FBI holds all sorts of raw files on every Republican in D.C. It may be they lose their nerve once they take Congress. Oh, they might grandstand a bit but in the end won't dig deeply into this - or do anything about it. I doubt Wray will get sacked.
We have lost America. This isn't the country I knew.

There is a relatively new conservative talk network on the air here and he's on it. I started listening - he's really good! Far better than the guys who took over for Rush Limbaugh.
BTW A follow up story I saw said Thibolt did indeed resign and was not canned. They needed him out of there.
Now he can take the fifty amendment in testimony, whereas when he was in the FBI he couldn't.
