Franken is toast. The Democratic female senators are all calling for him to resign. Obviously the decision has been made that he’s got to go.

"It's my right as an entertainer" (Al Franken quote)
KMSP Fox 9 ^ | December 6, 2017 | Al Franken
Posted on 12/6/2017, 12:37:02 PM by research99

At least seven Democratic women in the U.S. Senate are calling on Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota to resign after the latest allegation of sexual misconduct was published Wednesday morning. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Sen. Mazie Hirono‏ of Hawaii, Sen. Maggie Hassan‏ of New Hampshire, Sen. Patty Murray of Washington, Sen. Kamala Harris of California and Sen. Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin each released statements or social media messages calling on Franken to resign.

In the latest allegation, a woman told POLITICO that Franken tried to forcibly kiss her following a taping of his radio show in 2006. A former Democratic congressional aide, who was not identified by POLITICO, said Franken pursued her after her boss left the studio. When she tried to avoid him, she claims he told her: "It's my right as an entertainer."

Conyers Endorses Son, Who Called Dad a 'F***king Player' for Hitting on Married Women
PJ Media ^ | December 6, 2017 | Nicholas Ballasy
Posted on 12/6/2017, 3:09:45 PM by Loyalist

WASHINGTON – John Conyers III, whom outgoing Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) endorsed to replace him in Congress, once tweeted that his father was a “f——g player and reckless as hell” for hitting on a married woman.

“My dad is a f——g player and reckless as hell! He just got at this doods wife super low-key,” Conyers wrote on his Twitter account in June 2010, according to a report from MLive.com, a Michigan-based news website.

Conyers announced today that he plans to retire from Congress amid sexual harassment allegations from multiple women and he wants his oldest son, John Conyers III, to take his seat.

John Conyers III, now 27, made headlines in 2010 when he claimed two Apple laptops and $27,000 in concert tickets had been stolen from his father’s government vehicle, which was a Cadillac Escalade SUV. He also reportedly posted a photo of a bottle of Moet champagne next to the steering wheel of the vehicle, which caused some of Conyers’ constituents to question why his son was driving a taxpayer-funded vehicle. This prompted his father to apologize for the incident.

Democrat Accused Of Sexual Harassment (says) Pelosi Knew And Did Nothing About It
Daily Caller ^

Posted on 12/6/2017, 3:05:34 PM by

A first-term Democratic congressman accused of sexual harassment said that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi knew about the allegations while he was running for office and supported him anyway, putting millions of dollars behind his 2016 congressional campaign.

During his campaign, Nevada Rep. Ruben Kihuen allegedly propositioned a female staffer for sex on multiple occasions and touched her thighs. The staffer resigned during Kuhen’s primary campaign as a result of his harassment, she told BuzzFeed.

Pelosi was quick to demand Kihuen’s resignation after the allegations became public, but she actually has known about the harassment allegations for a while, Kihuen told ABC News.

“I do find it interesting that the DCCC, Leader Pelosi and Chairman Ben Ray Lujan — they knew about these allegations last year,” he said. “They looked into them. They didn’t find anything, and they continued investing millions of dollars in my campaign. They went out there and campaigned for me.”

If true, Kihuen’s account would reflect poorly on Pelosi, who said over the weekend that she believed Kihuen’s accuser.

“The young woman’s documented account is convincing, and I commend her for the courage it took to come forward. In light of these upsetting allegations, Congressman Kihuen should resign,” Pelosi said on Saturday.

Drew Hammill, a spokesman for Pelosi, insisted to ABC News that Pelosi “first learned of these allegations from BuzzFeed last week.” A spokeswoman for the DCCC similarly denied Kihuen’s account

AVALANCHE: Democratic Senators Turn on Al Franken After Latest Allegations
Mediaite ^ | 6 Dec 2017 | Josh Feldman
Posted on 12/6/2017, 12:08:23 PM by mandaladon

Six senators on Wednesday called on fellow Democrat Al Franken to resign, in a jaw-dropping avalanche of statements addressing the latest allegations against the Minnesota senator.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, kicked things off, publishing a post on Facebook aptly titled “Senator Franken Should Step Aside” (read here). Democratic Sens. Mazie Hirono of Hawaii, Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire, Patty Murray of Washington and Kamala Harris of California all followed suit.

This comes on the heels of yet another woman coming forward with allegations of sexual misconduct against Franken, which he has denied as “categorically not true.”

Gillibrand’s Facebook statement says that while she has considered Franken a friend, “this moment of reckoning about our friends and colleagues who have been accused of sexual misconduct is necessary, and it is painful.”

Hirono immediately followed suit, publishing a thread on Twitter explaining her decision:

What this tells you is that Moore is death and taxes to win in Alabama. That’s why they’re all coming out now. A Moore loss and they could’ve circled the wagons around Franken. However, now that Moore is going to be in the Senate there’s no way they could go after him with Franken still sitting there.

Conyers Mentioned Chandra Levy Case When Intern Rebuffed Sexual Advance: Report
Fox News ^ | 12-6-2017 | Matt Finn
Posted on 12/6/2017, 11:49:59 AM

A former congressional intern reportedly says she too was a victim of inappropriate sexual contact by now-retired Rep. John Conyers, saying Conyers even claimed during that encounter to have “inside information” on then-missing federal intern Chandra Levy.

Courtney Morse, 36, described the incident from 16 years ago to The Washington Post. She said Conyers, D-Mich., mentioned the Levy case when Morse was a college intern for him and the congressman drove her home one night.

Morse said Conyers wrapped his hand around hers while it was in her lap and said he was interested in a sexual relationship, the newspaper reported.

Levy went missing in 2001. A police investigation revealed she was having an affair with married California Democratic Rep. Gary Condit.

“[Conyers] said he had insider information on the case. I don’t know if he meant it to be threatening, but I took it that way,” Morse told The Post. “I got out of the car and ran.”

Morse said nothing inappropriate happened during the first months of her internship and that she accepted Conyers’ offer for a paid summer internship. Then he started giving her gifts and asked her to dine with him -- and later offered her the ride home, which she accepted. Morse quit her internship shortly after the incident and returned to Ohio.

Levy’s remains were found about a year later in a park. MS-13 member Ingmar Guandique was found guilty of murder, but the case was effectively dropped over problematic witness testimony and Guandique was deported. Condit lost reelection in 2002 amid speculation about his role, but his lawyer later described the Guandique verdict as vindication for his client.

Washington Post ^ | December 6, 2017 | Craig Whitlock
Posted on 12/6/2017, 7:05:12 PM by EdnaMode

A California woman who worked for a sports marketing firm led by Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon has filed a sexual harassment lawsuit alleging that the retired football star required her to wear thong underwear and share his bed during business trips.

The lawsuit, filed Monday in Orange County, Calif., also alleges that Moon, 61, committed sexual battery by grabbing the woman’s crotch during a trip to Seattle this year. The suit further accuses Moon of pulling off the woman’s bathing suit after slipping a drug into her drink during a separate trip to Mexico in October.

A publicist for Moon’s company, Sports 1 Marketing of Irvine, Calif., did not return phone calls or an email seeking comment.

The plaintiff, Wendy Haskell, 32, was hired as Moon’s executive assistant in July and traveled with him on a weekly basis for speaking engagements, charity events and personal appearances, according to the lawsuit. She alleges that she was demoted by the firm in October after she complained about Moon’s sexual advances.

John Conyers Son and Heir Apparent Arrested for Felony Domestic Violence
TMZ ^ | 12/6/17 | Staff
Posted on 12/6/2017, 7:25:26 PM by x1stcav

John Conyers' son -- the one he wants to replace him in Congress -- was arrested this year for felony domestic violence ... TMZ has learned.

John Conyers III got in a fight with his girlfriend on February 15, 2017. Law enforcement sources tell us he accused her of cheating after going through her computer at around 2 AM. The argument allegedly escalated into physical violence ... she told cops John body slammed her on her bed and on the floor, pinned her down and spit on her. She says she tried calling the cops, but he took her phone.

The woman claims he then chased her into her kitchen where she grabbed a 10-inch knife to protect herself, ordering him to leave the house.

She says he grabbed the knife and then swung at her twice, stabbing her, cutting her right bicep which required 3 stitches. She says he then chased her back into the bedroom, pinned her against the bed and slapped her.

They both called 911 and when cops came John claimed she pulled a knife on him and, when he grabbed it to protect himself, he accidentally stabbed her.

Why Liberal Democrats Ignored Sexual Harassment for So Many Years
Townhall.com ^ | December 7, 2017 | John C. Goodman
Posted on 12/7/2017, 10:06:54 AM by Kaslin



The quick answer is that liberalism is no longer an ideology, focused on ideas. It is a sociology, bent on acquiring political power and social dominance.

George McGovern was the last Democratic presidential nominee who ran an issues campaign. That was 45 years ago. Since then Democratic politicians and their liberal supporters in the mainstream media have moved steadily away from issues and toward the politics of identity. Can you think of a single issue highlighted in Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign? I bet you can’t.

For the most part, all the issues we have been discussing since the days of Ronald Reagan have come from the right – flat tax, school choice, privatization, private Social Security accounts, etc. Liberal Democrats have done little more than oppose.

The only political message Democrats have had for blacks is: vote for us because you’re black. The only message for women is: vote for us because you’re a woman. Similarly, for Hispanics, immigrants, gays, etc.

Identity politics is based on three Vs: victims, votes and vengeance.

Victimization means telling people their problems, their setbacks, their disappointments are caused by someone else. They’ve been oppressed. Unfairly. They should be angry about it. Very angry. And … do what? … Go vote.

Identity politics is not about changing laws. It’s about getting people to the polls. It’s not about changing institutions. It’s about acquiring political power.

If you aren’t listening very carefully, you might mistakenly think that Democrats have agendas. For example, you would expect a party that is pro-women to have a women’s agenda. A party that is pro-black to have an agenda for blacks. A party that is for the little guy to have a little guy’s agenda. In fact, the Democrats don’t have any of these.

Some time ago, Wall Street Journal editorialist Kimberly Strassel and I wrote a book entitled, Leaving Women Behind. The entire book was about ways women get shafted by federal policies. For example, tax law, labor law, employee benefits law, the Social Security system, the disability system, etc., are all based on an outmoded view of how women live. It’s as though the entire federal bureaucracy decided years ago that the typical woman would be a stay-at-home mom, married to a full-time worker husband. If your household fits that image, federal policies probably work pretty well for you. But if you are a modern family living under outdated laws, you’re probably losing out.

Our book was chock full of ways to bring federal policies into the 21st century and make them consistent with the changing role of women in the modern age. Question: how many of these policy changes were endorsed by the Hillary Clinton campaign? Answer: not a one. (For what it’s worth, our suggestions to Mitt Romney were ignored as well.)

You might think that sexual harassment would be a rather straightforward issue for the party that claims to be the party of women. In the 1990s, liberal activist groups used the issue to almost derail the appointment of Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas and to force the resignation of Senator Bob Packwood. But the allegations against Thomas and Packwood seem almost trivial by today’s standards.

Later when Bill Clinton was accused of these far more serious transgressions, women’s groups associated with the Democratic Party defended him. Republicans called them “hypocrites.” But that misses the point.

We now know that sexual harassment has been rampant for years in all the places where liberals congregated – on Capitol Hill, in the state legislatures, in Hollywood, in the mainstream media, at liberal opinion magazines, etc. If they cared about this behavior they could have said something. But they didn’t. I hope it is now clear to all that sexual harassment to the Democratic establishment was always about elections and achieving political goals. It was never about anything else.

There is also no Democratic black agenda. And there never has been. At least for the last 50 years.

San Francisco is probably the most liberal city in California. And it’s the richest. If they care about minority children there, they certainly have the means to do something about it. Yet, black and Hispanic children do worse in San Francisco schools than anywhere else in the entire state.

It’s almost a rule of modern political science: wherever you find minority children attending bad schools, Democrats are probably in charge. Ditto for the worst housing. And the worst environmental dangers.

For many years, the only people who seemed to care about helping black children escape bad schools were conservative Republicans. Wealthy Republican donors set up private school choice programs all over the country. In recent years, many wealthy Democrats have joined to help them. But there are almost no establishment Democrats who are willing to stand up to the teachers’ unions.

The final V is vengeance. If people have been oppressed, don’t you think they should have the opportunity to complain? And given their oppression, don’t you think they should be allowed to step over boundaries the rest of us must respect? Liberals certainly think that way.

Jesse Jackson called Jews “Hymies” and called New York City “Hymietown.” Al Sharpton created a lucrative business out of Mau-Mauing unsuspecting whites – for $10,000 he could arrange a civil rights protest almost anywhere. Black Lives Matter marchers chanted “Pigs in a blanket…” Rich black football players took a knee, to protest living in a racist country. Protestors can tear down statues for almost any reason. Members of the media and even Hillary Clinton herself can make up fake news stories about Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown.

And they all get away with it. In fact, to object to any of this is in the liberal mind “political incorrectness.”

Well … at least it was until someone was willing to call them out. And because he did it, Donald Trump became president.

More on that in another column.

As FBI Directors, Mueller and Comey Ignored Dozens of Female Agents Who Were Sexually Abused
True Pundit ^ | 12/6/2017 | by Investigative Bureau
Posted on 12/7/2017, 9:17:37 AM by b4its2late

Spanning more than a decade, former FBI directors Robert Mueller and his successor and protégé James Comey relied on their inner circles to help cover up a surging and troubling amount of sexual misconduct complaints filed by physically violated and emotionally battered female FBI agents.

There is a culture of corruption in the FBI. Or the FBI is a culture of corruption.

“They (Mueller and Comey) didn’t care as long as they were insulated politically,” one female FBI insider said. “It’s rampant. People wouldn’t believe it. Agents are being sexually assaulted and they are terrified to speak out.”

While similar sexual abuse in Hollywood has garnered the public’s outrage and attention, the systemic abuse fostered by Mueller and Comey is far worse, according to numerous FBI personnel. By ignoring the abuse instead of confronting it, Mueller and Comey ultimately created a culture of enablers and silencers who often worked together to openly sexually abuse and exploit women in the Bureau, then punish the agents who have the guts to balk or walk.

“I lost everything because I stood up to the sexual abuse,” one female FBI agent said. “I stupidly told (female) agents that if we told the truth we could stop it from happening. It was the biggest mistake of my career. There is no place for honesty in the FBI anymore.”

A veteran male agent reluctantly agreed.

“This is the FBI’s playbook from the seventh floor” one male FBI agent said, alluding to the bosses on the seventh floor of the FBI’s D.C. HQ. “Female agents aren’t here to get promoted; they’re here for one thing. And if they complain about it that’s a big mistake.”

While the fickle Beltway politicians and Americans become equally enraged by a handful of sexual assaults by politicians like Sen. Al Franken and John Conyers, those abuses — although important — pale in comparison to the frequency of what happens daily in the FBI, according to interviews with sources.

During Mueller’s and Comey’s tenure as the head of the FBI — from 2001 to 2017 — countless female FBI agents were sexually harassed, sexually assaulted, and almost always marginalized by retaliation when they complained. True Pundit interviewed numerous FBI agents and insiders while researching this troubling story – including direct victims of sexual misconduct – and examined internal complaints obtained through sources as well as public law suits.

A culture of corruption. Sixteen years in the making. A conspicuous conspiracy to sexually harass and cavort.

One high-ranking FBI official estimates there are “several hundred and maybe far more” active sexual harassment and misconduct cases filed by female FBI agents. And those are only the current cases.That doesn’t include the female agents who have remained silent, toiling in their day-to-day FBI responsibilities, fearful of professional retaliation if they speak up, several FBI insiders confirmed.

There are in fact approximately 293 pending cases, based on the statistics maintained by the FBI’s Office of Equal Employment Opportunity Affairs. While not all are related to female discrimination and sexual harassment, many are. It is impossible to determine exactly how many because the DOJ categorizes complaints such in an archaic manner. So far in 2017, there have been approximately 50 new harassment cases filed, which include general harassment and sexual harassment and sexual misconduct.

There are not statistics compiled, however, for sexual harassment cases filed by female agents at the federal EEOC level, in civil court, or through the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility. And then there are the dozens of FBI women who remain silent about the abuse. The want to hold onto their jobs and have witnessed the brutal gauntlet others have had to endure in a lost quest for legal relief.

The FBI’s sexual harassment also costs untold millions in taxpayer dollars to defend and settle complaints, grievances and law suits. One Bureau insider and former accountant for a Fortune 100 financial company said the FBI’s unofficial tally during the last decade for the FBI to fight and settle sexual misconduct and harassment cases could eclipse $150 million.

And that is a conservative figure, the FBI official said.

That’s $150 million. Or more. Or perhaps less. Only the FBI knows and that is the point. This is a serious scandal which requires Congressional intervention to ascertain just how many women who dreamed about becoming a FBI Special Agent or FBI analyst — and worked to make that dream their life – ended up battered, bruised and abandoned by bosses like Comey & Mueller who largely through either malfeasance or nefarious intent helped nurture a system of rampant sexual harassment and sexual abuse. Include McCabe here too. And any attempts to change that culture by the victims – sworn FBI agents, analysts and female support personnel — were met with harsh and often vicious repercussions, unexpected in an agency sworn to protect and defend law and order in America.

The result of such sanctioned abuse has given women FBI agents little recourse: female personnel either put up and shut up or spoke up and risked their careers. In fact, many times speaking up to try and squelch sexual harassment cost many female agents their careers because the male hierarchy at the Bureau have been rewarded for retaliating against sexual abuse whistle blowers, according to FBI sources.

Some women lost their marriages, relationships, homes too as well as their careers, by over-leveraging their debt to pay legal fees to fight the FBI’s corrupt infrastructure. One agent, Suzane J. Doucette who was victim of sexual assault by a superior in the Phoenix field office, pursued the FBI and settled her case. But her husband Bradley, also a decorated FBI agent, turned his FBI-issued glock on himself in their bedroom one morning before work and committed suicide while his wife was in the next room. On-the-job and off-the-job stress. All FBI related, including his wife’s case.

Mueller and Comey enabled this culture and did nothing to alter the corrupted and petty Sanhedrin of enablers and abusers who often operated like a cabal of drunken frat boys instead on Special Agents sworn to protect Americans and the Constitution, according to several insiders who spoke to True Pundit.

The rampant sexual abuse can hardly be a surprise at FBI when factoring in that such abuse ifs almost always prevalent in a workplace culture where there are usually other problems: internal and external investigations of upper management, allegations of widespread graft and corruption, bullying, and clandestine political skullduggery.

Meanwhile, the mainstream media sits silent too, ever the Deep State’s sentinels protecting the FBI’s crooked brass, just like the entertainment media squelched the rampant sexual abuse in Hollywood until it spread beyond its control.

The culture of corruption in the FBI has reached an apex. Something needs to change and in a very big way.

Then there’s the pending concern for blackmail. Yes, blackmail. Inside the FBI. Employed as a political or nefarious tool by FBI brass. What better leverage would a superior use to get an unwilling agent to do dirty work – even break the law — than to threaten that agent to expose his infidelity with a FBI colleague – or multiple colleagues — to his wife?

“This is happening more than anyone would ever know,” said one FBI agent who has served under multiple directors. “You realize the people you’re working for are worse than the criminals. This is old-fashioned extortion and it’s out of control.”

According to long-time FBI veterans who began their careers in the 1990s, then-FBI Director Louis Freeh instituted a sweeping disciplinary policy for FBI supervisors soliciting sex with subordinates or any FBI agents engaging in extramarital sexual affairs.

“Freeh would just pull your security clearance because he feared you might be blackmailed,” one FBI veteran said. “And they would make you tell your spouse so there wasn’t any leverage. They don’t do that anymore. Now it’s chaos.”

One such case surfaced this week, when FBI Section Chief Peter Strzok was exposed for engaging in a relationship with FBI lawyer Lisa Page who is married and works for McCabe. Strzok worked for Mueller’s special counsel team investigating President Donald Trump at the time of the intra-office affair but has since been removed from the Trump Russia probe. In a potential sign that FBI culture could be changing for the better, newly-minted FBI Director Christopher Wray was reportedly angered by the infidelity and has re-assigned Strzok to the human relations department of the Bureau.

But the sexual abuse in the FBI cuts both ways, according to federal sources. Female managers have on occasion sexually harassed male agents or pressured subordinates for sex. This is yet another example of out of control and unchecked workplace harassment at the FBI.

Is the rampant sex among supervisors and their subordinates being green lighted so that the romps can be used as a form or blackmail? That would be a very dastardly and a very clandestine way of controlling would-be whistle blowers that may infringe and threaten other illegal schemes FBI brass is involved in. That is, after all, how blackmail and extortion work. The FBI use such sleight of hand with criminal targets and dupes because it is effective and thorough. Why not use it too on colleagues?

But FBI and its brass is supposed to protect folks – especially their fellow agents of all genders — not condone superiors having sex with subordinates or married agents.

Or having sex while in a government office. In corners of the FBI’s headquarters building. Or its sprawling underground parking garage where CCTV surveillance cameras don’t cover the entire square footage. Or the front steps of the FBI’s D.C. field office. Or a rendezvous with a subordinate support staffer or Agent in a hotel near the field office.

That’s the FBI’s ugly secret. And there is a well-oiled machine in place to keep such cases under wraps. At all the costs are underwritten by the taxpayer. There are many twists and turns to this scandal with many seemingly exceeding the raunchiness of the abuse inflicted by Harvey Weinstein’s and his Hollywood cohorts.

Such cases and suits have been quietly piling up for more than a decade at the FBI. Meanwhile, Mueller and Comey both feigned ignorance, according to several FBI sources. Despite pleas by agents to fire repeated intra-office sexual offenders, many times the male perpetrators were promoted instead to positions with even more clout and power.

Meanwhile, female agents were ostracized and administratively tortured. Some driven to nervous breakdowns, stomach ulcers, a life after exiting the FBI spent in and out of psychotherapy trying to pinpoint what THEY did wrong. This doesn’t include others who turned to alcohol or prescription pills to numb help a spiraling, unexpected life.

“I had supervisors ask me who I was sleeping with and if I was available for sex,” one female agent said. “With guys it is cool to act that way in the office. It’s just the way it is. You get used to it.”

It’s little wonder the amount of female FBI agents has been plummeting as many simply quit and walk away from what was once their dream job, even after the file sexual abuse complaints. Women in the FBI today hold about 12 percent of 220 senior agent positions. But that number has tumbled from 2013 when FBI women held about 20 percent of senior positions.

Of the FBI’s 13,000+ agents roughly 20 percent are women. That sets up a four-to-one male to female ratio in the Bureau which in itself can be a root cause for many of these harassment problems. The challenge is that so many women are walking away from FBI careers because of the harassment it is almost impossible to beef up the number of female agents to alter the lopsided ratio.

At a conference of police chiefs in 2016 Comey acknowledged the FBI was having serious problems retaining female agents. He deemed the situation “a crisis.”

“The big challenge we’ve been confronting over the last two years is, how do we get women and people of color,” Comey said. “That’s been our big trouble and I’ve described it as a crisis.” (NY Times)

Yet Comey never did anything extraordinary to curb the rampant sexual misconduct, several FBI sources said, even though he was asked to help stop abuse.

But no matter how many women the FBI hires and trains it can’t seriously expect to retain stand-up women of character and integrity in such a runaway chauvinistic culture of mental and physical abuse.

“How can you be concerned about recruiting women when you’ve created a sexual-charged minefield at work?” one agent said. “You don’t have a recruiting problem, the FBI has a retention problem because of the sexual harassment culture that has been allowed to fester for years.”

While Mueller certainly did little to curb the growing problems during his tenure, several agents said the sexually-charged environment really blossomed during Comey’s leadership, along with his deputy director Andrew McCabe’s brand of brash leadership.

Under Comey’s refusal to curb rampant abuse, FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C. has become a breeding ground for sexual harassment. Similar oppressive environments also thrive in FBI field offices in Miami, Los Angeles, Denver, Phoenix, New York and the list goes on. Unfortunately, the list only gets longer here.

How many sexual harassment cases have agents filed against Bureau colleagues? The number is impossible to ascertain. Some data is shared with the DOJ and reported quarterly but it is easily manipulated, insiders said. A sexual harassment complaint can be tagged as a general harassment complaint or under two dozen other categories. Other data is confidential through the federal EEOC. Not much of the data or cases are ever shared with lawmakers or Congress. And this doesn’t even account for the women who remain silent, afraid to sandbag their careers by trying to do the right thing.

Imagine that. FBI agents who fear doing what is right.

True Pundit contacted Sen. Chuck Grassley, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, who has oversight of the FBI. Grassley has been proactive with several unfolding FBI scandals including many linked to Comey and deputy director Andrew McCabe.

Grassley’s office did not respond to a specific True Pundit inquiry seeking statistical information on the number of sexual harassment and misconduct cases pending against FBI brass filed by subordinates.

One well-placed FBI source, however, said Grassley’s office is aware of the growing number of harassment cases involving women employed by the FBI. And his committee could be investigating that as part of its sweeping ethics examination of Comey and McCabe.

Grassley likely understands the cost to taxpayers here is beyond staggering. The fallout from sexual misconduct and harassment complaints in the bureau likely exceed $120 to $150 million. And, again, that is a conservative estimate. Of course the true amount will likely never be uncovered. The majority of the cases are settled, dropped, or quietly forgotten by the time they are settled. FBI rules keep such complaints private as well.

But law suits are public and tougher to mask. In 2016, Former FBI agent Danielle Marks filed a sexual abuse lawsuit against the FBI and also named Comey as a defendant in U.S. District Court in Denver, CO.

Per the Denver Post:

The agents would make lewd jokes about how one of the male agents was having an affair with a female prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s office.

Meantime, a supervisory agent was having an inappropriate sexual relationship with a female FBI agent, including openly sharing a hotel room during a work conference, the lawsuit says. The suit says the supervisor helped the woman get a position as secretary to Special Agent in Charge Thomas Ravanelle, who oversaw the Denver office and recently was transferred to the inspection division at the agency’s headquarters.

Agents would make sexually inappropriate remarks, look at Marks and the other female agent in the unit and say, “I wonder how many zeroes will be at the end of that lawsuit check,” the lawsuit says. It became so common that they would make a sexual comment and say, “Uh oh, add another zero.”

From interviews conducted by True Pundit, one female supervisory agent, just moments before briefing Mueller during a conference-room sit-down, was told by a high-ranking FBI official to sit quietly, like a piece of furniture.

“I was told you just sit there pretty like a piece of furniture,” the agent said. “He said ‘You just sit there and look pretty, that’s what you’re here for.’”

That same agent recalls another story where an Associate Director was having sex in the FBI HQ parking garage with an underling when the interlude was broken up by the FBI Police who maintains security of the headquarters building.

“He got caught running down Pennsylvania Avenue with his pants around his ankles after he ran out of the parking garage with his pants down but he was picked up by FBI Police,” the agent said.

It was the second time the senior agent was caught having sex with a female subordinate in the parking garage, the source said. Instead of being reprimanded, Mueller promoted the senior agent a week after the partial streaking episode.

Filing a complaint against a male agent for sexual misconduct is no simple task for female agents either. While other government employees can use the impartial U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to file a complaint, FBI agents are forbidden.

Instead, female agents must file the complaint with FBI’s Office of Equal Employment Opportunity Affairs which is an agency under the directorate of the FBI itself.

“Guess who investigates your case?” one FBI agent lamented. “The FBI. Isn’t that wonderful? Not outside agency. It’s all kept quiet.”

FBI’s Office of Equal Employment Opportunity Affairs conducts preliminary interviews and tries to get all parties to work out a quiet deal to remedy the complaint.

If that phase doesn’t garner a resolution, agents may file a formal complaint with federal EEOC. But again, those complaints are not public. And many cases can stretch for five years or more before they are resolved. At this level female agents are responsible for underwriting their own legal fees. And may agents – with rock-solid cases – simply drop these cases when they can no longer afford to pay their lawyers.

FBI brass use this flawed system to slow walk cases filed by female agents to try and rack up their personal legal fees so they will be motivated to drop the case.

“One case I know of the agent and their lawyers were up against six government lawyers,” one FBI agent said. “That’s just corrupt. And it gets too expensive to keep the suit active so many women walk away without anything, including their job.”

Perhaps equally alarming, a number of agents who have filed sexual harassment complaints allege the FBI’s Office of Equal Employment Opportunity Affairs never interviewed the witnesses they submitted who could corroborate their allegations of harassment and sexual abuse. FBI sources had similar stories about their cases getting sandbagged by personnel at the FBI’s Office of Professional Responsibility, the internal Bureau arm that tackles ethics and disciplinary action.

“The entire process is a cruel joke,” one FBI agent said. “If Comey or McCabe or anyone with juice wants the case to vanish, they run it from upstairs and you never have a chance.”

EEOC complaints are not public information until a final case decision is made. If the female agent drops the case before resolution, the complaint remains confidential.

One FBI agent recounted finally receiving her notice of her sexual harassment case hearing date from EEOC, which she believes further boosts her claims of harassment.

“The hearing was about 1,500 miles from my office,” she said. “I’m supposed to pay for my witnesses to travel 1,500 miles to testify?”

Other female agents detailed instances where, after they filed complaints, their supervisors had responded by shadowing them in the field and micromanaging their work or downgraded otherwise glowing personnel evaluations to harm their chances of getting promoted or a pay raise.

The entire process is not cheap for the agent but especially for the taxpayer. When you compile the cost of an agent’s training, expertise, Bureau hierarchy and combine those intangibles with the bloated cost of paying government lawyers, EEOC lawyers, judges, and personnel and resources to defend these suits, the process easily spills over into the millions of dollars.

And that doesn’t include settlements paid to agents who win their cases.
