The jig is up at the FBI. The Fat Lady is singing. You can hear parachutes opening in the halls of the FBI. In this developing story, more FBI Agents have resigned over texting issues. There is a real possibility that an actual, not imagined, shadow government has been exposed. Read on.

As Written and Reported By Thomas Lifson for the American Thinker:

Choose your metaphor: rats leaving a sinking ship, cockroaches scurrying away from the light, or maybe just people cutting deals to save their butts.  Yesterday saw the FBI fan feculated.

The blandness of this Politico story, titled “Two more officials cited in FBI texts step down,” conceals really, really big news.  The jig is up.  Each of the “officials” who is “stepping down” is leaving under duress and likely facing serious legal consequences for acts that have been disclosed – acts that go to the heart of the fraudulent application for the Page FISA warrant and the obstruction of justice in the Hillary email probe.

Hugh Hewitt explained the departure of David Laughman on Twitter, as noted on the Washington Post.  Via Twitchy:

David Laufman, chief of the counterintelligence section at the Justice Department’s National Security Division, has stepped down, per @nakashimae. He played a leading role in the Clinton email server and Russian hacking investigations.

Here are the texts delivering Hewitt’s analysis:

From one of my long time (but now retired) AUSA pals:

“David Laufman resignation is a big deal.  As [d]ep. [a]ssist. [A.G.] for National Security Division, he was the [p]rimary [s]upervisor over [c]ounter-[i]ntelligence work in Nat Sec.  He would have had a hand in the approval of the FISA application on Page.

“He likely had a role in the decision[-]making on the Clinton email investigation since his section handled cases involving leaks of classified information.  The decisions on granting immunity, and allowing conditions to be attached to the examination of computers, would have come from his office.  I do not think those were conditions that the FBI would have wanted.  On the immunity issue, FBI wouldn’t have the authority – that could … come from [only] the prosecutors in Nat Sec.

“The press reporting is that he offered his resignation yesterday…


Sudden FBI departures indicate that the jig is up
