James Clapper the 2nd..
what a fucker! pretending like this is nothing more than a less than satisfactory progress report! isolated concerns easy to put right with steps 1. 2. & 3. argh… we the people have got to stand-up!
yes…and it needs to happen soon
Pretty clear Mandy even in his words at the end; what the President thinks doesn’t really matter. Problems are at the top and no amount of retraining or restructuring of policies is going to change that. Thanks for the video review.
One of your best and most insightful analyze. I agree. This guy doesn’t take the FBI’s problems seriously. His walk to the rostrum was lazy and dismissive. His whole attitude is slovenly, like ‘what a waste of time.’ All the libs are harping ‘no political bias,’ So does Wray. That’s a huge tell. This FBI lifer was recommended to Trump. Trump went with him. Whoever recommended Wray should be fired, next Wray, then get to real reform.
BIG time analysis! Completely HOLLOW news conference!!
At about 20:30, “And I think we’ve Strzok(struck) the right balance so far”. – You can’t make this up.
I couldn’t bring myself to liking this guy since the confirmation hearing. He’s is douche. A question of the day: who made the original redactions? (e.g. the bombshell Strzok answer) That would be MY question.
Another great analysis, Mandy; thank you. I couldn’t get past all of his squinting and using his nose to pull up his upper lip. Often appeared like a semi-snarl. So much contempt!!
He strikes me as one of those people that you know you need to get away from them to keep from telling them what a jerk they are. Never have cared for this guy.
He keeps wanting to keep everything in-house. Like their Internal Affairs division. The one that has never found an FBI agent using their firearm inappropriately. I think you nailed him pretty good. This has been a pretty exciting week. Thanks for making so much of it make more sense.
Great analysis, my compliments!. This man and what transpired during the Clinton investigation, what is happening now with the Mueller one, is so wrong on so many levels. Not being from the US but having vast experience in investigating compliance, fraud etc, I believe that there is a urgent need for real reform and not just some staff awareness training. The FBI staff should already know exactly what their procedures are and include oversight from management. Problem here is not field staff but that management is totally corrupt in their thinking and the IG report clearly states that there was political bias.
Also seems the media has totally lost its capabilities to ask critical questions. Guess they all have the same belief system.
You nailed it ! My thoughts exactly .
Allot to think about, thanks Mandy.
It didn’t find any evidence of political bias or improper considerations actually under review” BECAUSE IT WAS 90% REDACTED. According to Q the top 5 are going to be fired.
I hadn’t seen his entrance, and even BEFORE you said something, that walk to the podium was so defiant, blatant who cares attitude. So GLAD to have you confirm it with technical truth and integrity!! Gosh, he is a douche. His WHOLE attitude is “you are wasting my time with this stupid nonsense” it’s sooo telling!!! SMH…
He’s not happy and he is very resentful of having to be there addressing this problem. He’s dismissive of the findings too.
That being said, what I noticed is a limp in his gait. Found a couple short clips of his baseline gait (swearing into office, another as guest speaker) and noticed a similar “gimp” in his step but less pronounced. I’m wondering if he has some sort of chronic Orthopedic issue in his left lower extremity (hip, knee, ankle…I’m not sure). I’d guess it’s his hip. Also guessing it was hurting more than usual during this video. Possibly explains his exaggerated and frequent lean to his right side.
Watch really close as he approaches those two steps onto the podium.
It was a very bad day for Director Wray: He’s pissed. He’s hurting physically. He’s resentful of the oversight of the IG. He wants to do what he wants when he wants to and answer to nobody.
It’s as A-hole walk accentuated by almost a sympathy-seeking, “I’m in pain today,” limp.
Yes, it looks like a bit of hip dysplasia to go along with his brain dysplasia.
I noticed that limp too. He’s very narcissistic. Yes the problems run very deep in the FBI. Wray needs to go! I think they all need to have lie detector test at this point. Isn’t that what they would do to us?
Well done and thanks, Mandy. Lots of little jerks by a big jerk. “The A- Hole Walker saying “F- You” to your face” sums it up perfectly. No political bias but I am implementing political bias training. The president needs to launch the whole upper echelon of Justice, FBI and IRS and get some honest people in there. I hate the fact that somebody they are targeting can have one minor mistake and these bastards persecute them and ruin them for life financially and otherwise, but when several of their own are involved in a treasonous criminal conspiracy to throw an election they get reassigned or maybe fired if it looks like there is no alternative. The corruption is so ingrained they need somebody from outside, not another swamp rat to run these departments.
Completely swept under the rug! Hide and Lie… the motto of the FBI. Definitely power loving Swamp rats! “THE UNTOUCHABLES”
He looks like Steve Martin’s character in “Little Shop of Horrors”.
I so appreciate you Mandy for putting words to my senses, thoughts. “The roll” giiiirrrrrrl! The Gangsta Roll …LOL Where did he come from? Is he appointed? By Trump?
yes he was… he worked with comey and mueler in early 2000
Sadly, while Mandy displays her body language skills in this video, she also displays a complete lack of knowledge in another area. At 22:20, she asks, “What were you doing while all this was there, since you worked there? Did you notice this?”
Christopher Wray was NOT with the FBI at all during the time period covered by the IG report. In fact, Wray never worked for the FBI before he was sworn in as Director LESS THAN A YEAR AGO, on August 2 to be exact.
Perhaps the man appears to be ill-at-ease and nervous because he is tasked with answering for problems that he had absolutely nothing at all to do with. Regardless, since all of Mandy’s comments are based on her mistaken assumption that Wray was at the FBI during the improprieties, most of her comments are void.
He also worked for the DOJ under James Comey.. seems like a conflict to me. Also.. if you are answering questions that you were NOT part of.. that will give far less stress than if you were involved. The fact he jumps out of his skin on ‘political bias’ and given he has history with Comey, DOJ and the ongoing mess with that.. (thats still going on since he was sworn in) I’d say something sure seems fishy.
No doubt something seems fishy, but the fact remains: Wray DID NOT work at the FBI during the time covered by the IG report. Mandy’s comments were based on the erroneous assumption that she made crystal clear at 22:20.
Wray has been there since he was sworn in…and those things the ig report pointed out were on going while he has been and he has done nothing…the lovers the leaks are all on going…its not like the ig report is stating something that happened one time
It goes without saying that “Wray has been there since he was sworn in,” but you make it clear at 22:20 that you mistakenly believed that Wray was with the FBI while Page, Stozk were up their despicable acts. HE WAS NOT. Wray became FBI Director only 10 months ago. Holding Wray responsible is misguided, uninformed and unreasonable.
Also, the IG DID NOT point out that those things “were going on while he has been” with the FBI. Now you are adding fresh misinformation to your earlier misinformation. You must also be unaware of the fact that Strozk was removed from the Mueller probe within 14 days of Wray becoming FBI Director.
Denying your error hurts your credibility.
You are half truthing what Wray has been involved in. You are leaving out the clearance that strok still has, the contact he still has and access he still has, you are ignoring the on going leaks, you also are portraying Wray as without blame to the current issues of the FBI I.E. Awan brothers and Schultz.
