The U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are charged with faithfully upholding the U.S. Constitution. If they fail in that charge, the consequences are dire. Further, inasmuch as the FBI and DOJ serve as arms of the Executive Branch of the U.S. Government, any failure on their part to uphold the U.S. Constitution must be presumed as prima facie evidence of a failure of the Executive Branch of the U.S. Government as a whole to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
A mountain of evidence has emerged in the past several years that clearly points to a systematic series of serious, egregious, and intolerable failures of the public trust within the FBI and the DOJ as a whole under the present Obama Administration.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s mishandling of one of the most important investigations ever assigned to the Bureau in its 108-year history has rendered it unfit to serve as the nation’s prime investigatory and law enforcement agency. As a result, the FBI can no longer be trusted to fulfill its assigned role in law enforcement. It should therefore be abolished. A new agency, with a new name, that is populated with fully-vetted federal, state, and local agents, investigators, and law enforcement personnel whose individual commitments to honesty, integrity, and faithfulness to the U.S. Constitution are without reproach, must then be created in its place.
Once this is done, the current Attorney General of the United States, Loretta Lynch, along with those reporting to her, and the current Director of the FBI, James Comey, along with those reporting to him, should be investigated for criminal misconduct, and their cases should be brought before a specially convened Grand Jury responsible for determining the nature of the criminal charges that should be filed against them. If they are indicted by the Grand Jury, then all involved should be tried in Federal Court. If convicted, each guilty party should be penalized to the fullest extent allowed by law, including incarceration, and forfeiture of all salaries, pensions, rights, privileges and perquisites they presently enjoy as a result of their high offices.
Furthermore, inasmuch as the Executive Branch of the U.S. Government is responsible for both guiding and monitoring the DOJ and the FBI, ensuring that these organs of law enforcement function in full obeisance to the U.S. Constitution, failures to do so on their parts constitutes a failure on the part of the Executive Branch to properly guide and monitor their activities. Indeed, criminal misconduct at the DOJ and FBI suggests criminal misconduct within the Executive Branch of the U.S. Government as a whole. Anyone who doubts this needs only to examine the strong evidence now surfacing of serious, egregious, and pervasive criminal misconduct within the Internal Revenue Service to see how criminality appears to have permeated all levels of the U.S. Government. It must also be pointed out that this evidence is not limited to the Executive Branch, but to the Judicial Branch and the Legislative Branches as well.
With respect the criminal misconduct carried out within the DOJ and FBI, a full and impartial investigation of the involvement of the Obama Administration in all aspects of the criminality within those organs should be carried out by the agency that replaces the Federal Bureau of Investigation. All parties who engaged in this criminal misconduct, including those in high office up to and including the President of the United States, must be brought before specially convened Federal Grand Juries responsible for considering the nature of the charges, if any, that should be filed against them. If they are indicted by that Grand Jury, then all such parties should be tried in Federal Court. If convicted, they should be penalized to the fullest extend allowed by law, including incarceration and forfeiture of all salaries, pensions, rights, privileges and perquisites they presently enjoy as a result of their high offices.
Only after these steps are taken will the citizens of the United States, whose tax dollars fund the activities of our government and who are the employers of the civil servants that work, at the pleasure of said citizenry, in the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Justice, and the Executive Administration, once more be able to respect and honor the offices they hold and prosecute.
Until this is done, the dishonor cast on the Federal Bureau of Investigation by Director James Comey, on the Department of Justice by Attorney General Loretta Lynch, and the Executive Administration of the U.S. Government by President Barack Obama, will so sully every action taken by their personnel that their ability to function as servants of the citizens of the United States will be intolerably damaged by the fruit of the poisonous tree they nurtured and cultured by their dishonest actions.
It must be recognized by all honest and upright citizens of the United States of America that this damage nullifies the ability of the U.S. Government to function as a government of, by, and for the people of the United States. The American citizenry must no longer stand idly by and allow this to continue. Thus, if no action is taken by duly authorized law enforcement agencies at the Federal, State, and Local levels of U.S. Government, the people of the United States must stand up, one and all, and demand redress through all legal and constitutional means at its disposal.
