The arrest of former FBI agent could call into question a lot of different cases: RawStory

The arrest of former FBI agent could call into question a lot of different cases: counter-intel expert - RawStory

Former FBI agent Charlie McGonigal was charged on Monday with money laundering and violating Russian sanctions, leading to a lot of concern among other former FBI officials, said former assistant director for counter-intelligence Frank Figliuzzi.

Speaking to MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace, Figliuzzi confessed he was "distraught" and "angry," but he wasn't alone among those former Bureau colleagues. He explained that because of this case, they now must reexamine every case that McGonigal touched throughout his career in the New York field office.

"As early as several months ago, if not longer, there was some early reporting that Charlie, who had retired, had been doing some consulting that had gotten him sideways with some administrative regulations," said Figliuzzi. "When I first thought that, I thought, okay, he hasn't filled out a foreign agent's registration form or something like that. This can't possibly be much worse than that. And of course, it is much, much worse because it extends back to his time as an active-duty FBI executive in the largest FBI office in the nation."

His takeaway, emotions aside, is "the reach of the Russian government and adversarial intelligence services into our nation and our intelligence community."

3. I heard him on Stephanie Miller's show last week and I thought he defended the poor investigation

the FBI did on the Kavanaugh case. He said they were hemmed in by the parameters put on them by the administration.

6. The FBI is technically part of the executive branch.

So when the GOP talks about weaponizing law enforcement, they are expressing a legitimate concern. The problem being that they complain about weaponized law enforcement when laws are enforced equally, and not protecting and insulating them.

Period.
