Another Day, Another FBI Agent Demotion Scandal

We’re starting to lose count of the number of FBI officials who’ve been fired or demoted as a result of their collusion with or on behalf of Hillary’s campaign in the lead up to the presidential election.

The picture that’s quickly being painted here is that the Russia dossier — which is the basis of Robert Mueller’s investigation — was a joint creation of the FBI, DNC and Hillary campaign for the express purpose of derailing Trump’s campaign to ensure a victory for Hillary.

And now the FBI’s General Counsel James Baker has been demoted after it was revealed in documents released by the DOJ that Baker had leaked the dossier to liberal reporters just weeks before the election.

If this isn’t obvious collusion, we’re not sure anything qualifies as collusion.

Here’s more from Redstate…

Another senior FBI official, this one is FBI general counsel James Baker, has been removed from his position and reassigned to make-work activities after he became a prime suspect as so source who leaked FBI reaction to the Trump dossier to the media.

House Republicans are investigating contact between the FBI’s top lawyer and a Mother Jones reporter in the weeks before the left-leaning outlet broke the first news story about the existence of a disputed dossier alleging ties between President Donald Trump and the Kremlin, according to two congressional GOP sources who described documents linking the two men.

The GOP sources said the documents — made available recently to lawmakers by the Department of Justice — revealed that James Baker, the FBI’s general counsel, communicated with Mother Jones reporter David Corn in the weeks leading up to the November 2016 election. Corn was the first to report the existence of the dossier on Oct. 31 and that it was compiled by a former high-level western spy.

The Washington Post reported Thursday that Baker had been reassigned within the FBI, though the reason for the move was unclear.

Corn denied that Baker was a source for his story on the dossier.

“I’m not going to discuss my sources. But in order to prevent the dissemination of inaccurate information, I will say that James Baker was not my source for this story,” he said in a statement to POLITICO.

The congressional sources said there’s no conclusive evidence that Baker aided Corn’s reporting or acted as a source. But Republicans are pointing to the connection to cast suspicion about whether FBI officials had a hand in directing the details of the dossier to reporters, and the two sources said they expect it to be a focus of GOP investigators’ upcoming lines of inquiry.
