One of the worst things Barack Obama did to our law enforcement community was to put in place a long list of left-wing ideologues in places of leadership in the FBI. They have spent ten years destroying the FBI from within.
But now, at long last, one of Obama’s final appointees is on the way out.
According to Fox News, “The official, Bill Priestap, will retire from his post as assistant director of the FBI’s counterintelligence division by the end of the year.”
“Assistant Director Bill Priestap became eligible to retire and has chosen to do so after 20 years of service,” an FBI spokesperson said to the media.
Priestap was one of the corrupt Obamaites who worked to neuter the fake investigation into Hillary’s email crimes.
Priestap, who participated in the bureau’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server and the FBI’s initial probe into Russian meddling and potential collusion with Trump campaign associates during the 2016 presidential election, has testified before Congress on multiple occasions regarding the bureau’s handling of both investigations.
As Fox notes, Priestap’s departure marks the end of the Obama era leadership at the Bureau.
According to Fox, the other officials who have finally left the agency include:
- Former FBI Director James Comey
- Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe
- Peter Strzok and Lisa Page
- James Baker
- James Rybicki
- Michael Kortan
- Josh Campbell< li>James Turgal
- Greg Bower
- Michael Steinbach
- John Giacalone
Obama’s pernicious influence on the FBI turned the agency from the nation’s most serious and important investigative agency into just another political arm of the extreme left-wing. Obama gutted the agency and made it a laughing stock.
Hopefully, with one of Obama’s last corrupt officials going by the wayside, the agency can recover its reputation.
