Funny how it always seems to work out like that for them.

And for every other policing agency in the country that "investigates" itself.

The same FBI that Farkers believe will come save them?

No!  Couldn't be that the federal cops are, in fact, still cops!

That's...not how grand juries work. They effective indict whoever or whatever the prosecutor tells them to. And who doyou think the prosecutors will side with?

If they believe the evidence points to no crime being committed, show it it a grand jury and let them decide.

I'm sure everything they did was "legal". Because the laws are set up to ignore accusations from women who have been molested.

The grand jury will indict a ham sandwich if they are told to.

Dead Men Tell No Tales
Last May, a weird story made the news: the FBI killed a guy in Florida who was loosely linked to the Boston Marathon bombings. He was shot seven times in his living room by a federal agent. What really happened? Why was the FBI even in that room with him? A reporter spent six months looking into it, and she found that the FBI was doing a bunch of things that never made the news.

Considering how the FBI was founded and its original goals/efforts, this surprises you?

Prosecutors who convene grand juries control what the GJ hears and sees. You really, really think a prosecutor is going to lay out all the evidence and not whatever protects their buddies at the FBI?

Ahhh, accountability. Cops aren't required to protect or help you. FBI isn't required to do their jobs correctly.

They fail, miserably, and we just shrug.

This country is such a shiatshow.

From 1908 - 2007 the FBI was the enforcement arm of the office of the United States Presidency.  In 2008 it officially became the enforcement arm of the democrat party, even when a republican occupies the white house.

Blow it the fark up.

It's operating as designed, at least since the industrial revolution, and despite the best efforts of the Roosevelts and similar guys.

Before 1972, only men could apply to the agency.

Right now, the FBI says overall about 23 percent of its special agents are women, meaning nearly 80 percent are men.

The job comes with a mandatory retirement age of 57 and the hiring process can take 12 to 18 months.

Tenured professors are another population with shared characteristics of abuse, silence, and inertia to change.
