Beyond bizarre

So let’s get this straight: the FBI went to the FISA court in October 2016 to investigate a Trump associate, using the Steele Dossier as evidence of some sort, and gets that authorization renewed monthly 3 times.

Then, 3 months later, on January 6, 2017 the FBI director meets with the President-elect and tells him info in the Steele Dossier. He neglects to tell him that the Dossier was financed by his electoral opponent, and neglects to tell him that it was used to support FISA investigations of some associate of his. On January 27, the FBI director meets again with the new President. Again he neglects to tell him that the Steele Dossier was financed by his opponent, and again does not say that it has been used to investigate one of the President’s associates. But the FBI director then goes on to warn the President that it should not ask the FBI to check out the veracity of allegations in the Steele Dossier because it “might create a narrative that we’re investigating you personally.”

How screwed up is this? There should be a blackboard kept in an Oval Office closet. At the beginning of each meeting with officials, it’s rolled out. On it is written, “if your not giving full disclosure, you’re fired. Do not pass Go, do not collect $200. Oh BTW, Go to Leavenworth.”

Oh, on the way to Leavenworth, see if you can find Efrem Zimbalist Jr. and bring him back to fix the now-disgusting FBI.
