After being dark since 2015, the FBI account which tweets out record dumps they place online began tweeting this weekend after Comey's letter went public.

Through the weekend, the tweets were innocuous, but certainly ones that would garner some attention. Like these:

And then they tweeted this just awhile ago:

Yes, you read that right. They tweeted out a link to a document dump today of mostly redacted records of a 15-year old inquiry into the Clinton Foundation and some insinuated link between President Bill Clinton's pardon of Marc Rich and donations to the foundation.

Of course, they only released the initial summary of the inquiry and no actual resolution, leaving open the suggestion that either the investigation remains on the books, despite the fact that a Grand Jury was convened and apparently did not find any cause to proceed.

This is outrageous. There is something really wrong with the FBI right now. And I should add that FBI Director James Comey was an investigator on the original Marc Rich case, and retired Assistant Director James Kallstrom was the director of the New York office and a mentor to Comey.

Kallstrom must also have ESP, because two days ago he predicted "something big." (Video is at the top of the post).

Please, please, please. Make calls to get out the vote in key states. Because if you think this is bad, imagine the FBI under a President Trump. If they're rogue now, they'll become his fascist army under him. We need a President and Congress who can clean house.

Comey ought to resign today for this. He's obviously either unable to control his rank-and-file or else he's complicit. Either is unacceptable.

Update:

In an apparent cover to look "unbiased" or something, the account also dumped a Fred Trump inquiry from 1966. Are we to believe there are no records of any Donald Trump inquiries in all of their archives?

Can you help us out?
