The former FBI officials: Abused photography tip is unforgivable
The FBI received a tip about Florida gunman before the massacre; former FBI assistant director Ron Hosko responds to ‘their world’.
From the fabled halls of the J. Edgar Hoover building to field offices across the country, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is facing a crisis of trust, as rank-and-file agents the debt are not prevent the recent attacks, and the top brass finds herself in the middle of an unfolding political struggle.
The flash, bad news is a tribute to the extremely proud of bureau members, past and present.
“In my experience, I can’t say I know of no parallel to what is happening now,” the former FBI Assistant Director Ron Hosko told Fox News.
The two-pronged attack on the office of the credibility of reached a crescendo last week, when the Bureau had approved it, not traded on a tip that could have stopped Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz. To make President Trump seized, in turn, to the grave error effectively to accuse the bureau, errors, because the active ingredients are consumed, with the Russian probe.
Feb. 13, 2018: FBI Director, Christopher Wray, in Washington, DC, speaks during a Senate Select Committee on Intelligence hearing on global threats. Wray is a call to resign in the Wake of the Florida high school shooting.
While the DOJ announced triumphantly on Friday that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation had indicted 13 Russian nationals, Trump stressed that the case show that, in collusion with his campaign.
The ignored warning about Cruz was particularly painful because it was the second such shooting in the trap. Cruz shot down 17 students at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., on Feb. 14. It quickly turned out that a YouTuber had warned, said the FBI someone share had the same name, he wanted a “professional school shooter” in the September.
Then the word came on Friday, the other tipster, the Bureau had given an even more specific warning Jan. 5, and which was also ignored.
“The child was blinking in red and the system has failed,” said Hosko. “The FBI has his piece, and it is a significant piece.”
Trump was quick to tie together the two issues, tweeted that the Bureau missed signals, because it was “to prove to a lot of time trying Russian agreement with the trump campaign”, then it is of the essence, “back to the basics and make all of us proud!’
Very sad that the FBI missed to send the many signals of the Florida school shooter. This is not acceptable. You have to spend trying a lot of time to prove Russian agreement with the trump campaign – there is no collusion. Get back to basics and make us all proud!

FBI Director, Christopher Wray, selected by trump bring stability to the office after he was fired, James Comey, has vowed to “get to the bottom of what happened in this particular matter.”
But Florida Gov. Rick Scott has had enough. In his view, Wray, who was just installed as the Bureau’s new leader on Sept. To go 28 — already.
“An apology is never the 17 Floridians bring back to life or the comfort of the families, said in pain,” Scott, last week. “The families will ask for a lifetime, how this could be done, and an apology will never give them the answers they desperately need.”

And the Florida shooting is not the only case, currently the generation of questions about what knew, the FBI, and when.
The father of Ahmad Khan Rahimi, a convicted terrorist sentenced to multiple life terms in prison Tuesday for planting pressure-cooker bombs in New York and New Jersey in 2016, he says concerns about his son to the FBI two years before the explosions, which injured 30, but nothing ever came of it.
“After two months, call me [and say], “Oh, your son is not acting everyone like a terrorist,” Rahami, Mohammad WNBC said on Thursday. “I said, ‘sure he does nothing?’ He say, ‘Yeah, this is good news.'”
“The President can say – gives him the ammo, what the hell is going on with the FBI?”

Back in Washington, a shakeup of the bureau’s leadership in recent weeks led to the departure of Andrew McCabe — after months of conflict-of-interest complaints from Trump, and Republicans — and James Rybicki, Wray’s chief of staff.
Fox News was told, McCabe-who was questioned for his loyalty to the democratic party — was “removed” from his post and is no longer reported to work at the FBI. His wife, as a Democrat, ran for a Virginia Senate seat in 2015, and their campaign was financed by a group linked to the Clinton family pal Terry McAuliffe.
“How can the FBI assistant Director Andrew McCabe, the man in the shop, along with leakin’ James Comey, the Wrong state, Hillary Clinton, investigation (including 33,000 illegally deleted E-Mails) will be given $ 700,000 for the women’s campaign of the Clinton puppets, during the investigation?” Trump tweeted in December, about a month before the news of McCabe fall broke.
Hosko, says Trump’s weekend criticism of the FBI is an obvious reaction to the pressure he delegitimize against Robert Müller-led probe and its comments “to the FBI, the efforts and the support for the Russia investigation.
“He has the Twitter-box in his hand,” Hosko told Fox News, noting that the President gets his thoughts out faster and more often than any of his predecessors. “I think that reinforced his comment about the FBI.”
But Hosko says that as long as the FBI keeps making mistakes-such as the “catastrophic” Florida one, or the “embarrassing” SMS-exchange between Peter Strzok and Lisa page, two former members of Miller’s team, which blew up, the President has against the Agency.
“It is a part of this conversation,” Hosko told Fox News. “The President can say – gives him the ammo, what the hell is going on with the FBI?”
