Now that even the leftist media admits there was no there there when it came to the investigation of alleged Russian infiltration of the 2016 Trump presidential campaign, news comes that the FBI honcho who ran the witch hunt against Trump is indeed himself a Russian stooge. I swear, you can’t make this stuff up.
Is there no depth that Democrat and, sadly, FBI corruption can’t sink to? As such, the Challenger Deep ethics of the once admired Bureau takes another hit.
Fox, “A former senior FBI counterintelligence official who spearheaded the Trump-Russia probe was arrested and charged over his own alleged ties to a sanctioned Russian oligarch amid the war in Ukraine.
Charles McGonigal, the former special agent in charge of the FBI’s Counterintelligence Division in New York who retired in 2018, is charged with violating U.S. sanctions by agreeing to provide services to Oleg Deripaska, a sanctioned Russian oligarch. He was charged alongside Sergey Shestakov, a former Soviet and Russian diplomat who later became a U.S. citizen and a Russian interpreter for courts and government offices, through a five-count indictment unsealed in Manhattan federal court Monday.”
Some may say he wasn’t working for the Russians during the Trump probe. Do you believe that Russian allegiance was a recent thought of the disgraced McGonigal? That is the kind of thing that is planned years in advance, possibly while he was still with the FBI and even perhaps when he was calling an innocent Trump a Russian agent.
He was probably recruited by FSB some time ago. He came up on their radar because of his high position in counterintelligence. What better guy to compromise or buy off than the guy who is supposed to be in charge of looking for foreign agents trying to compromise or buy off American personnel? Shades of Kim Philby, it’s perfect.
After he was lured in, I bet by money, he was, per the usual practice at FSB, assigned to a handler. That was Shestakov. His superior was little doubt Deripaska. They took advantage of McGonigal’s knowledge, contacts, and willingness to sell out the United States of America. But, of course, to the FBI Trump was the real national security threat. Uh huh. Really.
But then Russian and Dem stooges are nothing new to America. Ron Dellums, the Dear Commandante letter, and Bernie Sanders are evidence of how close Dems and the Russians have been for decades. And let’s not forget Alger Hiss, the top Dem presidential aide and State Department official who was a high level Russian spy.
Was, is, McGonigal a Dem? Very possibly. But he worked for the Comey FBI, which took its orders from Obama and Hillary. If not a Dem, close enough for government work. The Russian government.
