Digging UP Dirt

PJMedia is reporting that the FBI offered to pay for dirt on Trump campaign associates during the 2016 election.
British spy Christopher Steele was offered money by Obama’s FBI to dig up dirt on Mike Flynn. The proposal came in the weeks before the 2016 election. This offer hasn’t received any press until now and was first reported by The Daily Caller. “The inspector general’s report, released on Dec. 9, 2019, said that FBI agents offered to pay Steele ‘significantly’ to collect intelligence from three separate ‘buckets’ that the bureau was pursuing as part of Crossfire Hurricane, its counterintelligence probe of four Trump campaign associates.”
That's just wrong.  The FBI has no business getting into electoral politics, and every good agent in the agency should be clamoring for a total cleaning, to p to bottom.  Under Obama/Comey the FBI went from the worlds premier law enforcement agency into a farcical bureau that seemed to want to influence the outcome of a presidential election.  With all the revelations, I would be ashamed to carry the FBI's badge today.  I'm sure that there are some good officers at the line level, but they should be raising hell to start indicting the guys who made then into a corrupt clown-show.

This down-grade of integrity started with Slick Willie's administration and by the time of Obummer's administration the ones with integrity had been squeezed out or retired. When heads of departments, CEOs, bosses and such have no integrity, it gets next to impossible for you as an individual to survive. One of the reasons I retired early was, I got tired of walking the tight rope of keep my job and doing what was right.

Sad state of affairs... And no, the Fibbies don't have a good reputation with current LEOs at the state and local levels.
