‘DON’T underestimate them!’ Ex-MI6 Chief WARNS Russia could strike DEADLY attack again

M.N.: Of course they could, dear Sir Richard. But why would they consistently paint themselves into a corner, in the various ways and forms; during almost the whole past century, through the various systems of governments and various economic systems? 
Stupid they are not, and the unskilled they are not.  
Maybe, there is the same Geopolitical Factor, so to speak, is present; namely the German – Russian – (Austrian) continental competition, and the traditional designs of the German Military Intelligence, the old Abwehr and the New (Post WW2) Abwehr? It is very possible that this not so invisible hand is present in many historical events of this tragic past century, up to this day. It is also possible, it seems to me, that this hand is present in the Salisbury Poisoning events. 
The “Operation Novichok” is illustrated by the Postcard from Salisbury. 
And all this in the addition and as the superstructure above the regular and annoying Russian shenanigans. 
I think, that this “German Hypothesis” puts (almost) everything into the perspectives.

Salisbury Poisoning Updates

INSIGHTS

Add note

Speaking to Sky’s Sophy Ridge, the former MI6 boss claimed that although the Salisbury poisoning of former Russian military agent Sergei Skripal resulted in an “incompetent operation”, a future attack by the hands of Russia should not be underestimated.

Sir Richard argued Russian espionage will never stop and that Vladimir Putin‘s country will continue to be violent as embedded in its DNA.

He said: “Russian espionage, Soviet espionage, has never stopped.

“It’s deeply embedded in Russia’s DNA to use the capabilities that it has to disrupt our nations, to pursue their own national interest, to, as it were, reinforce Putin in power.

“The attack in the UK fits a historical pattern, Russia historically has always used assassination as weapon, it’s part of the Russian political DNA, it’s a rather terrible thing to say but it’s a violent country and they tend to kill each other.”

The warning came after it emerged that the identity of the second suspect in the Salisbury nerve agent attack would be revealed in the Houses of Parliament next week.

The Bellingcat investigative website is set to name the Russian GRU military intelligence officer at a meeting on Tuesday in a Commons committee room hosted by Tory MP Bob Seely.

The two suspects in the attempted poisoning of ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal were originally named by the Government as Ruslan Boshirov and Alexander Petrov – although it was made clear that the names were aliases.

On Saturday, Sir Tony Brenton, who served as UK ambassador to Russia between 2004 to 2008, also warned that there was a “genuine danger” of the world falling into a world war crisis

Speaking to John Humphrys on Radio 4’s Today programme, Sir Tony warned that Russia could shut down the entire power system of Britain.

Russia has been accused of behaving like a “pariah state” after allegations the Kremlin tried to hack the UK Government and the international body that headed the Salisbury Novichok probe.

Dutch authorities said they thwarted a Russian attack on the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in The Hague, with assistance from UK intelligence.

Moscow has blasted the accusations as “another orchestrated act of propaganda” as part of an “anti-Russian campaign of spy mania”.

Sir Tony insisted that the Russian spying was not the most worrying aspect about Vladimir Putin’s approach to the West.

He said: “The espionage and covert propaganda side of this has been going on forever.

“We can express outrage but I suspect they will be enjoying our outrage and they will carry on with it, regardless.

“The bit that does matter and is genuinely dangerous are the Russian cyberattacks on infrastructure like the Ukranian power attack.

“There is a quiet war of that sort going on with the Russians taking a lead.

“The danger is that someone will do something that will escalate out of control, like close down a country’s entire power system.

“If that happens, we are into a major confrontation and we have no ways of controlling that.

“This is similar to how the threat of nuclear weapons played out.”

Donald Trump may be drawn into double agent Sergei Skripal’s ‘poisoning’

Security analysts say police are ­investigating links between critically ill Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and Christopher Steele, the British former spy who compiled an explosive dossier on US President Don­ald Trump.

The diplomatic relationship between Britain and Russia has nose­dived over the suspected daylight poisoning of Mr Skripal and his daughter Yulia in Salisbury, southern England, on Monday (AEDT).

But Mr Trump could be drawn into the chilling episode if Mr Skripal is linked to Mr Steele’s 2015 dossier, which detailed alleged collusion between Mr Trump and Russia.

  • Stephen Corby

    Frank Lloyd Wright was asked to build a house opposite a waterfall, but that would have been too straightforward.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson warned that England could even pull out of the soccer World Cup to be hosted by Russia in June if it is confirmed that the Skripals were poisoned by Kremlin-backed associates.

Counter-terrorism police took command of the investigation yesterday amid fears the victims — who were fighting for their lives in hospital — may have been poisoned by a nerve agent. Tests have been conducted for substances including sarin gas and VZ, the chemical nerve agent used to kill Kim Jong-nam, the brother of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, at Kuala Lumpur airport.

Police are looking at the security footage to identify a blonde woman with a red bag, who was initially thought to be Yulia Skripal.

Anthony Glees, director of the Centre for Security and Intelligence Studies at the University of Buckingham, told The Telegraph: “What we know is that Steele was our man in Russia, that he was extremely good. We know that what MI6 does is gain intelligence from human agents. You put all these things together, it is clear that ­either directly or indirectly Sergei Skripal would have been known to Christopher Steele.’’

Mr Steele was in Moscow in the early 1990s when Mr Skripal was passing information to MI6.

He was the chief of the Russia desk in 2006 when he headed the investigation into the fatal poisoning of Russian informer Alexander Litvinenko in a Mayfair hotel. A British inquiry found his killing was probably sanctioned by the Kremlin and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Mr Steele left the agency just before the 2010 spy swap resulted in Mr Skripal and three others being taken to Britain in return for 10 US-based Russian spies.

“If it is the case that Christopher Steele produced a dossier on Trump that is authentic and ­accurate, as we believe it to be — its accuracy has not been seriously undermined — then anybody who feels that Trump was humiliated and dissed by an MI6 officer may feel that getting at one of his agents is justified,” Professor Glees said. “That could be the Russian security services.”

Mr Skripal, a former army intelligence colonel, had feared for his life since his wife and son had died within five years, due to cancer and liver issues, reports said. His daughter has criticised Mr Putin on social media.

Mr Johnson told parliament that if the Putin regime were behind the poisoning “we will have to have a serious conversation about our relationship with Russia” .

“It will be difficult to see how UK representation at the World Cup can go ahead in the normal way,” he said. “I say to governments around the world that no ­attempt to take innocent life on UK soil will go either unsanctioned or unpunished.”

Russian Foreign Ministry spokes­woman Maria Zakharova described the comments as words of “savagery”. The Russian embassy in London said the Foreign Secretary spoke as if the investigation was already over and Russia was found responsible. “Looks like the script of yet another anti-Russian campaign has been already written,” the statement said.

The secret life of J Edgar Hoover | Film

mikenova shared this story from The Guardian.

J Edgar Hoover was a phenomenon. The first Director of the FBI, he remained in office for 48 years, from his appointment after the First World War to his death in 1972, achieving fame and extraordinary power. For public consumption when he died, President Richard Nixon eulogised him as: “One of the giants… a national symbol of courage, patriotism and granite-like honesty and integrity.” He ordered flags to fly at half-mast and that Hoover’s body lie in state in the Capitol.

In private, on hearing that he had died, Nixon had responded merely: “Jesus Christ! That old cocksucker!” Months earlier, closeted with key advisers, he had held forth on the need to persuade the elderly Hoover to resign. “We have on our hands here a man who will pull down the temple with him, including me.”

Nixon, soon to be disgraced and forced to resign, was of course himself no paragon. Most presidents before him, though, had had cause to fear Hoover or been troubled by what his FBI had become. Harry S Truman wrote during his presidency: “We want no Gestapo or secret police. FBI is tending in that direction. They are dabbling in sex-life scandals and plain blackmail… Edgar Hoover would give his right eye to take over, and all congressmen and senators are afraid of him.”

Hoover himself, meanwhile, had a personal secret that – in his era – could have destroyed him if revealed. Clint Eastwood referred to it this year before the launch of his movie, when he assured the J Edgar Hoover Foundation that J Edgar would not “portray an open homosexual relationship” between Hoover and his long-time male companion, Clyde Tolson.

Eastwood stretched the truth. Though there is just one passionate kiss between Leonardo DiCaprio and Armie Hammer, the two actors portraying them in the movie, the relationship with Tolson is a central theme. In real life, all Washington knew was that the pair dined daily together, vacationed together, did everything but move in together, and the whispers flew. When a magazine article in the 1930s referred to Hoover’s “mincing” gait, and a diplomat commented on his “conspicuous perfume”, Hoover struck back. He gathered derogatory information on the offending journalist, and asserted – falsely – that he did not use perfume. Real information on the Hoover-Tolson relationship surfaced only long after both men were dead, during research for my book.

A surprising find was the account by Luisa Stuart, once a celebrated model, tracked down because she featured in a droll photograph taken with Hoover and Tolson one New Year’s Eve in the late 1930s at the Stork Club – the place to be seen in New York at the time. In the photo, Hoover is shown holding his hands up as Stuart, armed with a toy shotgun, “threatens” him. Later that night, in the dark of a  limousine when they left the club, she remembered: “I noticed they were holding hands all the way, just sitting there talking and holding hands with each other… I was so young and those were different times. But I’d never seen two men holding hands.”

Joseph Shimon, a former Washington police inspector, recalled a taxi driver reporting the pair had been “kissing and ass-grabbing” during a cab journey. Harry Hay, founder of America’s first gay rights group, remembered that on vacation in California, in “a circle in which they didn’t have people who weren’t gay… They were nodded together as lovers.”

The Eastwood movie includes a bizarre scene that depicts Hoover, after his mother’s death, donning one of her dresses. It is a nod towards allegations I first reported, that he on occasion cross-dressed. I had information from three sources, two men who said an “easily recognisable” photograph of Hoover in an evening gown circulated in the gay community in 1948, and an account by a millionaire’s former wife of secret sex parties that she claimed to have witnessed in the late 50s. Hoover, the woman said, had been “dressed like an old flapper, like you see on old tintypes”.

Bill Clinton, who as president in 1993 was mulling over who to appoint as FBI Director, thought the cross-dressing reports were hilarious. “It’s going to be hard,” he grinned during a speech at a press function, “to fill J Edgar Hoover’s… pumps.” That I published such allegations at all, however, to this day draws roars of fury from old Hoover loyalists.

Other accounts of the Director’s alleged sexual activity, if true, would certainly have destroyed him had they become public. A former Bureau inspector and trusted associate named Jimmy Corcoran said years later that Hoover, youthful at the time, had once asked him to deal with a serious “problem”. He had been arrested on sex charges involving a young man during a trip to New Orleans. Corcoran, who had powerful contacts in the state, said he intervened to hush the matter up.

There is, too, a claim that as late as 1969, when Hoover was in his early 70s, he dallied with teenage boys during his habitual summer break in California. An element of corroboration came from Don Smith, an officer on the Los Angeles police vice squad, who told me of interviews he conducted with youngsters during a paedophile investigation. “The kids,” Smith said, “brought up several famous names, including those of Hoover and his sidekick”.

For me, the most significant, credible information on Hoover’s sexuality came with the discovery that Hoover for a while consulted Marshall de G Ruffin, a Washington psychiatrist who became president of the Washington Psychiatric Society. De Ruffin’s widow Monteen recalled learning from her husband that his distinguished patient was “definitely troubled by homosexuality”. After several sessions, however, “Hoover got very paranoid about anyone finding out he was a homosexual, and got scared.” As if to compensate, Hoover lashed out at and sought to expose other homosexuals. For years he had his agents infiltrate and monitor homosexual-rights groups, while he sounded off publicly about “sex deviates in government service”.

My conclusion after five years’ research was that while Hoover may have spent much of his life repressing his private urges while building an image of himself as the acme of sexual purity, he did sometimes lapse – risking catastrophe every time. Having studied the information I assembled, two noted specialists in psychiatry and psychology said they believed Hoover’s sexual torment was very pertinent to his use and abuse of power as America’s top law-enforcement officer.

Dr John Money, professor of medical psychology at Johns Hopkins University, thought Hoover “needed constantly to destroy other people in order to maintain himself. He managed to live with his conflict by making others pay the price.” Dr Harold Lief, professor emeritus of psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania, concluded that Hoover suffered from “a personality disorder, a narcissistic disorder with mixed obsessive features… paranoid elements, undue suspiciousness and some sadism. A combination of narcissism and paranoia produces what is known as an authoritarian personality. Hoover would have made a perfect high-level Nazi.”

The eight decades of Hoover’s life tell their own story. As early as his teen years, his mind was closing on issues that were to dominate his era. In the school debating society, he argued against women getting the vote and against abolition of the death penalty. He could never bear to come second in anything. When his father began to suffer from mental illness, a niece told me, Hoover “couldn’t tolerate the fact. He never could tolerate anything that was imperfect.” Another relative said: “I sometimes have thought that he really had a fear of becoming too personally involved with people.” William Sullivan, a close FBI associate, thought his boss “didn’t have affection for one single solitary human being”.

Hoover joined the Bureau – at that time just the Bureau of Investigation (the word “Federal” was only added in the 1930s) – as America’s first great Communist scare was getting under way, and handpicked as his assistant a man named George Ruch. One of two key associates to name their own sons J Edgar, Ruch expressed astonishment that left-wingers should even “be allowed to speak and write as they like”. Hoover and Ruch favoured deporting people merely for being members of radical organisations, and used the Bureau to spy on lawyers representing those arrested in the infamous Red Raids of 1920. One of them, on whom he was to keep tabs for half a century and deem “the most dangerous man in the United States”, was future Supreme Court justice Felix Frankfurter.

Hoover never joined a political party and claimed he was “not political”. In fact, he admitted privately, he was a staunch, lifelong supporter of the Republican party. He secretly aspired to be president and considered running against Franklin D Roosevelt, whom he thought suspiciously left-wing. Hoover publicly expressed support for Senator Joe McCarthy shortly before McCarthy claimed Truman’s State Department was harbouring 200 members of the Communist party. His agents slipped file material to the senator for use in his infamous inquisition, while publicly denying doing so.

The favourable publicity Hoover enjoyed was partially deserved. He cleaned up a Bureau that had been notorious for corruption and inefficiency, replacing it with an agent corps that became a byword for integrity. One veteran defined the ideal new recruit as a man who had to represent “the great middle class”, who “will always eat well and dress well, but will never get that sleek Packard or sumptuous house. He belongs to the Bureau body and soul”.

Hoover brought modernity and co-ordination at a time of disorganisation. He built the first federal fingerprint bank, and his Identification Division would eventually offer instant access to the prints of 159 million people. His Crime Laboratory became the most advanced in the world. He created the FBI National Academy, a sort of West Point for the future elite of law enforcement.

While all this was positive, Hoover’s Division 8, euphemistically entitled Crime Records and Communications, had a priority mission. Crime Records pumped out propaganda that fostered not only the image of the FBI as an organisation that spoke for what was right and just, but of the Director himself as a champion of justice fighting “moral deterioration” and “anarchist elements”. Hoover used the department to preach the notion that the political left was responsible for all manner of perceived evils, from changing sexual standards to delinquency.

Crime Records portrayed Hoover as the dauntless scourge of serious crime. In the movie J Edgar, long sequences are devoted to his supposed role in tracking down the murderer of the aviator Charles Lindbergh’s baby son. In real life, while Hoover postured as the Sherlock who led the probe, the case was in fact broken thanks to work done by another federal agency. Similar phoney self-promotion featured in the fight against the bandits of the 30s, Bonnie and Clyde, Machine Gun Kelly, John Dillinger and Alvin Karpis. Hoover hogged the limelight when the thugs were killed or captured and was jealous and vindictive when it fell instead on one of his proteges.

Late in the Eastwood movie, his companion, Clyde Tolson, peruses a memoir Hoover has just completed about his life and career. Then, reproachfully, he remarks that the account is a pack of lies. There was no real-life memoir, but the line is perceptive. Issues of fact versus fabrication and distortion, truth versus outright lie or self-delusion, dominate Hoover’s story.

Hoover’s public position on race, Southerner that he was, was that of the paternalistic white nativist. Less openly, he was racially prejudiced. He shrugged off the miseries of black Americans, preferring to claim they were outside his jurisdiction. “I’m not going to send the FBI in,” a Justice Department official recalled him saying testily, “every time some nigger woman says she’s been raped.” FBI agents paid more attention to investigating black militants than pursuing the Ku Klux Klan.

In the 60s, Hoover went to extreme lengths to establish that Martin Luther King and his movement were under Communist control. When surveillance established only that King was having sex with women other than his wife, FBI aides worked to “neutralise” him by slipping prurient information to the press. When the civil rights leader was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, Hoover was enraged. When thousands mourned King’s assassination, Hoover went to the races. He later tried to prevent King’s birthday being declared a national holiday.

All this took place against a personal background of which few are today aware – a rumour that Hoover himself had black ancestry. Early photographs do show him looking somewhat negroid, with noticeably wiry hair. Gossip along those lines was rife in Washington and – true or not – Hoover must have been aware of it. Did anxiety on that front shape the way he behaved towards blacks – just as he lashed out at homosexuals while struggling with his own homosexuality?

Research into the sex angle, meanwhile, may explain why – at the very time in US history that organised crime was on the rise and could have been effectively countered – Hoover failed to act. The man who had found fame for hunting down the bank robbers and bandits of the 30s let the Mafia flourish.

It seemed at first, before the Second World War, that Hoover would clamp down on the mob. Then, abruptly, he turned off the pressure. In the 50s, he actively obstructed the Kefauver Committee, which concluded there was indeed “a nationwide crime syndicate known as the Mafia”. Not so, said Hoover. When a 1958 report by his own agents also said the Mafia was real, he dismissed it as “baloney”. The FBI would take vigorous action only very belatedly, in the 1960s, under pressure from Attorney General Robert Kennedy.

Former officials I interviewed, including three former attorney generals and several former assistant directors of the FBI, were at a loss to explain why Hoover refused to tackle the threat of organised crime. “Hoover’s attitude,” said Neil Welch, a senior former agent who eventually distinguished himself fighting the Mafia, “was so contrary to reality as to be a reason for great speculation.”

Hoover himself, it is now clear, had contacts with organised criminals or their associates in circumstances that made it possible – likely even – that they learned of his sexual proclivities. More than one top mobster claimed the outfit had a hold on Hoover. Meyer Lansky, the syndicate’s co-founder, was said to have “pictures of Hoover in some kind of gay situation” and an associate quoted Lansky as claiming, “I fixed that sonofabitch.” Carmine Lombardozzi, who was known as “the Italian Meyer Lansky”, said: “J Edgar Hoover was in our pocket.”

Blackmail was the tactic that worked for Hoover, too, in his dealings with politicians. The title of my biography of him, Official and Confidential, derives from the name of a file group that was held in locked cabinets in Hoover’s office. By an official count after his death, the Director held 883 files on senators and 722 on congressmen. Many documents were shredded after Hoover’s death, but those that survive speak for themselves. An example is this 1959 report:

Dear Mr Hoover,

You may be interested in the following information… (NAME WITHHELD) [said] she had spent the afternoon of 3 June 1959, with Senator (NAME WITHHELD) in his private office. She also said she had sexual intercourse with the senator during the afternoon “on the couch in the senator’s office…”

Sincerely yours, 
James H Gale, Special Agent in Charge

Such reports, I learned, were used to bend politicians to Hoover’s will. He might need their co-operation to procure funds, to gain political muscle, or to avert investigation of operations he preferred kept hidden. An aide to Senator Edward Long, the Democrat from Missouri, was to swear an affidavit describing what occurred when Long was planning hearings on the FBI – with a special focus on electronic eavesdropping. A senior Hoover aide came to call, and the conversation went as follows: “Senator, I think you ought to read this file that we have on you. You know we would never use it, because you’re a friend of ours… We just thought you ought to know the type of stuff that might get around and might be harmful to you… They handed him the folder… Long read it for a few minutes. [Then] they went on their way. The next thing I knew we had orders to skip over the FBI inquiries.”

Hoover snooped not just on politicians but on officials high and low, on Supreme Court justices – at least 12 of them – even on presidents. He built files on writers, actors, on citizens across the spectrum who caught his malignant eye. Many feared what the Director might have found – whether he had compromising information on them or not.

In life, Hoover denied time and again that there were such “secret dossiers”. Acting Attorney General Laurence Silberman, the first person to peruse the secret files after Hoover’s death in 1972, learned otherwise. “J  Edgar Hoover,” he told me, “was like a sewer that collected dirt. I now believe he was the worst public servant in our history.”

The Director more than got away with his excesses. He was showered with honours. Even today, in spite of the ugly truths that have surfaced since his death – an official probe found that on top of everything he had also been personally corrupt – the sign on the façade of FBI headquarters in Washington proclaims, in gold lettering, that it is the “J EDGAR HOOVER BUILDING”.

“American society”, mused Dr Lief, the psychiatrist who thinks the facts indicate Hoover would have made a perfect high-level Nazi, “has a strangely polarised attitude towards its heroes. On the one hand people love to find the idol has clay feet, to find the flaw in the famous man. On the other, they are reluctant to take the hero off his pedestal. This is a curious contradiction in our society, and sometimes a dangerous one.”

Anthony Summers is the author of eight non-fiction books; the most recent is The Eleventh Day, on 9/11. A new edition of Official and Confidential: The Secret Life of J Edgar Hoover, is published this month (Ebury, £8.99). The movie J Edgar is out on 20 January

Wray Is Just Another FBI Lawyer In Charge Of Agents Who Deserve Better

mikenova shared this story from The Federalist.

Christopher Wray was sworn in as the eighth Director of the FBI one year ago. He took the position as America’s top G-man after the national meltdown over the firing of former director James Comey. President Trump fired Comey on May 9, and 29 days later, while still learning to navigate the turbulent waters of the swamp, he formally announced his intention to nominate Wray.

Twenty-nine days is hardly enough time to find a good nanny, but the fledgling Administration not yet five-months-old found their man and placed their bets on Wray’s stellar reputation as a senior government lawyer from the Department of Justice. Wray was a winner on paper, and because grandstanding is what they do, senators on both sides of the aisle fawned over him, receiving assurances he would maintain his independence from Trump. For being in the right place at the right time, Wray was confirmed by the Senate by a vote of 92-5, and on Aug. 2, 2017, he was sworn in as FBI Director.

In the rush to make the FBI right again, everyone, it seemed, got what they wanted. The politicians were happy. The Administration put out another fire, and the DOJ got another DOJ attorney to take control of the FBI. But a year later, now that the mass hysteria over Comey’s firing has subsided, what exactly did the FBI agents get out of all that drama?

As a former FBI agent, I am sorry to report that what they got was more of the same, in the form of yet another company lawyer from the DOJ, at a time when what the agents really needed was leadership in the form of someone who was actually an FBI agent. And because Wray’s ten-year term won’t expire until the year 2027, it is also my duty to report that, sadly, an entire generation of FBI agents will never know what it’s like to be led by one of their own.

FBI Directors And The DOJ

Since officially becoming the Federal Bureau of Investigation 83 years ago, the FBI has had a total of eight Directors. Only two of them had ever served as FBI agents (other agents have taken the top job but only briefly to keep the seat warm as “Acting Director”).

Clarence M. Kelley, a law school graduate and Navy veteran during World War II, was the FBI’s first Agent-Director. He wore the badge of FBI Special Agent over a 21-year period before permanently replacing J. Edgar Hoover as the top G-man in the mid-1970s. That was 40 years ago — before many FBI agents on the job today were even born.

After Director Kelley, the only other FBI Director who rose from the ranks of the FBI was Louis J. Freeh. He was an agent, federal prosecutor, and federal judge before he was sworn in as FBI Director. Director Freeh served for almost eight years before stepping down in June 2001. For the last 17 years, the FBI has been controlled by Directors who never served a single day as an FBI agent – Robert S. Mueller, III, followed by Comey, and now Wray.

All three were senior government lawyers from the DOJ before their appointments as FBI Director, and as lawyers in charge of the FBI, they set the top-to-bottom tone for an organization that is spending more time defending itself than celebrating its victories.

With an annual budget approaching $9 billion, the FBI employs some of the smartest, most capable and patriotic people you’ll ever meet. The FBI should be hitting on all cylinders, but the organization is faltering. Pockets of bad behavior, incompetence and unacceptable levels of mediocrity have tarnished the once-venerable FBI brand, and because lawyers have been running the show, they rightly deserve all of the blame for failing to provide the kind of strong, effective leadership the FBI now desperately needs.

Lawyers Are Not Leaders

At the heart of the problem is one simple fact: Lawyers, with few exceptions, are not leaders, they are litigators, wired to interpret and argue the law. In the courtroom or on the bench, lawyers are in their element, but in positions of authority, lawyers and other administrators up through the DOJ chain of command who have never been agents often do not understand and cannot connect in any meaningful way with the agents they try to lead. And without that bond, lawyers default to the lawyer’s playbook to manage the workforce, leaving the agents struggling to operate in what has become a stifling culture of micromanagement.

Excessive rules and regulations and overly restrictive guidelines promulgated by lawyers have stolen the initiative from agents faced with complex investigative challenges. Agents second-guess their own instincts and abandon their better judgment in favor of templates to drive their investigations. And when FBI agents look to their chain of command for leadership – never mind an occasional spark for inspiration – they don’t find leaders. They predominantly find compliance-obsessed managers in the field and at FBI Headquarters who overthink every problem and demonstrate time and again that they know their administrative minutiae better than they know their own people.

The FBI Response To The IG Report

Anyone who knows anything about FBI agents knows that one of the fastest ways to lose the faith and trust of the men and women of the FBI is to hold them accountable for something they didn’t do. You would think Director Wray would’ve read the memo on that particular point, but apparently he has not, and is showing his true colors as a lawyer from the DOJ in what is one of the signature challenges of his tenure – managing the fallout from the DOJ Inspector General’s Report on the Hillary Clinton e-mail and private server investigation.

As detailed in the report released in June 2018, a small group of outliers at the highest levels of the FBI exercised shameful, embarrassing and extraordinarily poor judgement, and because of the dereliction of a few, Wray is doing what lawyers do. In the face of withering criticism, he implemented Tier One Level CYA and ordered mandatory training for thousands of members of the FBI workforce who did absolutely nothing wrong.

In his nine-page written response to the IG’s 568-page report, Wray parroted the debatable conclusions of the IG’s report a dozen times to minimize the negative impact of extreme and well-documented political bias. And after calling for an all-hands-on-deck review of FBI policies and practices (as recommended by the IG), he expanded on the IG’s recommendations, ordering workforce-wide “political bias training, Hatch Act training,” “further training on media contact and the limited authority to release information,” “additional training on recusal obligations and conflicts of interest,” “renewed training on the governing policies related to device use,” and the list goes on.

This is what happens when lawyers try to manage a law enforcement and counterintelligence agency. A few people get out of line, and the lawyers in charge go to DEFCON 1 and scramble to release the floodgates of more training, more policies and practices, sending exactly the wrong message to all of the good, hard-working people of the FBI who – it should be noted here for the benefit of the lawyers – actually followed the rules.

Agents don’t need any more training, or least of all, more rules. What they need is someone with the guts to simply enforce them, to drop the hammer squarely on anyone who breaks the rules no matter who they are or what title they hold. Agents are grown-ups. They should already know what the rules are, and if they don’t, they have no business working at the FBI.

An Agent-Director For The FBI

Now, more than ever, with all due respect to Wray, what FBI agents need is an agent to lead them, a gifted and seasoned criminal investigator or counterintelligence agent who, just like them, made the cut after a highly competitive FBI Special Agent selection process, survived the FBI Academy at Quantico, carried a gun and a badge, worked the hard, complex cases, and fought the good bureaucratic fight.

They need an Agent-Director who knows first-hand the camaraderie of working side by side with other agents focused on a mission so important and unique that only an agent would understand. And they need an Agent-Director who can inspire and unlock the full potential of every agent across the FBI to restore the culture of leadership, discipline and accountability before today’s FBI becomes home to yesterday’s heroes.

This is the kind of leader agents desperately need, not another lawyer from the DOJ.

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

U.S. Intelligence Officials Warn of ‘Pervasive’ Russian Efforts to Disrupt 2018 Elections

Senior intelligence officials described Russian efforts to interfere in the 2018 midterm elections as deep, real and ongoing, showcasing their efforts to combat a threat President Trump has repeatedly dismissed.

“This Thing Has Tentacles We Have No Idea About”: Mueller’s American Target List Is Becoming Clearer

Robert Mueller’s indictment of 12 Russian military officers for hacking the Democratic National Committee’s computers was a stunningly difficult feat of counter-intelligence and criminal investigation. The document’s 29 pages were filled with granular details about the clandestine, overseas 2016 election-interference operation. Yet the indictment’s greatest significance may be buried in the facts that Mueller underplayed, and in the possible conspirators—Americans—whose identities the special counsel only teased.

“The thing that this indictment completely changes is it says that the hacking conspiracy wasn’t complete before all of these communications between Russians and Americans took place,” says Susan Hennessey, the executive editor of the blog Lawfare. “It was ongoing, even after WikiLeaks released the D.N.C. material in July 2016. It endured in the period in which we know members of the Trump campaign were communicating with indicted conspirators about the topic of the conspiracy. Whether or not we’re talking about Donald Trump Jr. or someone on the periphery, we still have a lot of missing pieces. But it pretty dramatically increases the possibility that someone actually did cross the line.”

Trump Jr. and his dad’s presidential campaign have denied trafficking in stolen Democratic e-mails. The special counsel keeps chipping away, though. “Mueller’s work says these Russian guys were in touch with Americans all over the place,” one congressional investigator says. “And there is a point in the 2016 timeline, after which, if you talked to these people—whether or not you believed they were Russian agents—and said, ‘Hey, I love what WikiLeaks is putting out there. Can you give me some more?,’ you are soliciting goods that you know to be stolen. And that’s a crime.”

Mueller’s indictment makes reference to five Americans who were in touch with the Russians through Guccifer 2.0, the hackers’ online front. Two of those individuals have essentially raised their hands: Roger Stone, the gleeful political dirty trickster and longtime Trump adviser, and Lee Stranahan, a reporter for Breitbart News and then Sputnik, a Russian government-controlled media outlet. Both have denied knowing that Guccifer was peddling stolen e-mails. The Smoking Gun, an investigative-journalism Web site, also volunteered that it is the “reporter” who Mueller says was offered stolen e-mails by Guccifer. Mueller describes a fourth American as a “state lobbyist and online source of political news,” who received 2.5 gigs of stolen Democratic data from Guccifer. That fits with the profile of Aaron Nevins, a Florida Republican operative who blogged under the pen name Mark Miewurd (get it?), and who has claimed he was acting as a journalist in seeking out the hacked e-mails.

The fifth and murkiest American, “a candidate for U.S. Congress,” sought and obtained damaging information on his or her opponent, according to Mueller. Speculation has centered on four Florida Republicans: Carlos Curbelo, Brian Mast, Matt Gaetz, and Ron DeSantis. Democrat opponents of each had to contend with the public release of hacked internal campaign information; all four won their races, and all four have denied any link to Guccifer. (DeSantis has called for an end to Mueller’s investigation, and Gaetz introduced a resolution calling for the impeachment of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.)

“Mueller’s most recent work—in combination with the charges against Maria Butina, which refer to two Americans—certainly tells the story of American involvement in the Russian election interference,” says Jim Himes, a Connecticut Democrat who sits on the House Intelligence Committee. “That adds to the story we already know: we know the George Papadopoulos story, we know the Don Jr. story. And Michael Cohen is alleging that the president was aware of the Don Jr. Trump Tower meeting. So the question at this point is really—is this whole incredible cast of characters guilty of something other than extraordinarily bad judgment? I’m as close to this as anyone who’s not on Mueller’s team, and I would say it’s still quite hard to tell.”

Mueller’s indictment may not name the five Americans, but he drops clues as to their identities. More intriguing are his hints of unknown unknowns. The special counsel has repeatedly targeted key actors who had not previously appeared on the media and political radar—the most recent example being five finance-industry witnesses in the trial of Paul Manafort who were given immunity in exchange for their testimony. “After the July hacking indictment, Rosenstein made a statement that it does not charge Americans,” Hennessey says. “Yes, that’s factually true. But it does not charge Americans yet. We don’t want to get too far ahead of the facts, especially when you’re describing uncharged conduct. People are entitled to the presumption of innocence. But the indictment describes conduct by Americans that is clearly criminal on its face.”

So while Mueller may not be ready to indict any domestic players right now—or may value them more highly as cooperating witnesses—including accounts of their actions in his recent filing is a loud warning. “This investigation touches so many people whose names and contexts we on the outside have very little knowledge about,” says Juliette Kayyem, a former federal prosecutor and a Homeland Security official in the Obama administration. “The key sentences in those indictments were about the four Americans. That is not only a signal to us, the public, that this thing has tentacles we have no idea about—it’s also a signal to them that this is your chance.”

Child dies after allegedly being thrown in Tampa river, mother charged with murder

mikenova shared this story .

A 4-year-old girl has died after her mother apparently threw her in a Tampa river on Thursday, police said. Shakayla Denson, 26, was charged with first-degree felony murder, aggravated child abuse and grand theft auto charges, Tampa police said.

CBS Tampa affiliate WTSP reports that Denson is accused of stealing a car from an auto repair shop, then parking the vehicle near Hillsborough River. Police said she then she walked into the river at about 4 p.m. and left her daughter, Je’Hyrah Daniels, in the water.

Denson was taken into custody walking not far from where the child was allegedly dumped in the river.

Police said they responded to a report of a child in the water at 4:30 p.m., and a dive team member discovered an unconscious child submerged about 75 feet off shore.

“Unfortunately at this point, there are a lot more questions than answers,” said Tampa Police Chief Brian Dugan, who called it a “completely tragic event.”

“It’s a crazy world we live in,” he said.
