FBI's top lawyer, Dana Boente, ousted

FBI's top lawyer resigns as agency faces pressure from President ...

After a 38-year career with the Justice Department, the FBI's top lawyer Dana Boente was asked to resign on Friday. Two sources familiar with the decision to dismiss Boente said it came from high levels of the Justice Department rather than directly from FBI Director Christopher Wray.

His departure comes on the heels of recent criticism by Fox News for his role in the investigation of former Trump National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.

A spokesman for the FBI confirmed to NBC News that Boente did in fact resign on Friday.

Fox News has recently criticized Boente's role in the investigation of Flynn, whose criminal charge for lying to the FBI was recently dropped by the Justice Department based in part on the argument that his lies were not material to an underlying investigation.

  • I am a nasty seventy-three year old retired Federal Law Enforcement Officer and in the case Rodger Jason Stone Jr is going to get very interesting after all the threats about disbarment because it most certainly because former Memphis City Schools Board President Tomeka Hart most certainly committed perjury and as a member of the bar and an attorney she cannot use the old “I did not know that defense.” and as for Aaron Zelinsky, Adam Jed, Michael Marando, and Jonathan Kravis may also be facing disbarment and a very candid conversation with the Office of Professional Responsibility and for their sakes I hope they will be very candid or else. If these miscreants are not charged and punished to the full extent of the law then you have no justice. As for Rodger Jason Stone his crime was he wrote some funny books such as “The Man Who Killed Kennedy: The Case Against LBJ”, “Stone’s Rules: How to Win at Politics, Business, and Style”; “The Clinton’s War on Women”; “Nixon’s Secrets: The Rise, Fall, and Untold Truth about the President, Watergate, and the Pardon”; “Bush Crime Family: The Inside Story of an American Dynasty”;  and last but not least “The Myth of Russian Collusion- The inside story of how Donald Trump Really Won”.



    • I have spent my whole life since I was seventeen years old in the military and law enforcement and I have lost count of the number of times I sworn an Oath to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. (There was only one exception when I worked a police officer in the town of Quantico, Virginia I had to swear an oath to the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Virginia where some of these families have been interbreeding since before the war that is the Revolutionary War. They still do not know they lost the Civil War. Just so you know under the United States Code perjury is defined as “(1) having taken an oath before a competent tribunal, officer, or person, in any case in which a law of the United States authorizes an oath to be administered, that he will testify, declare, depose, or certify truly, or that any written testimony, declaration, deposition, or certificate by him subscribed, is true, willfully and contrary to such oath states or subscribes any material matter which he does not believe to be true; or (2) in any declaration, certificate, verification, or statement under penalty of perjury as permitted under section 1746 of title 28, United States Code, willfully subscribes as true any material matter which he does not believe to be true; is guilty of perjury and shall, except as otherwise expressly provided by law, be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both. This section is applicable whether the statement or subscription is made within or without the United States subscription is made within or without the United States. Please explain to me how you could have carried out your official duties without a security clearance. By haps chance, mischance and coincidence Peter Strsok’s security clearance lapsed when I asked my friends who are both active and retired Special Agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation there were comments of an over developed Oedipal complex and being born out of wedlock with a very hostile intonation which I confess that I have no knowledge of.


  • he should be in prison.

  • So, I suppose every time one of the rats is in danger of getting their tail singed they are either gotten rid of to cover the embarrassment of the dept. or firm. Or they just resign on their own, ride off into the sunset and are never seen or heard from again. Where's the justice in that? These people are allowed to get away stock free and not be held accountable for any of the wrongs they did. If the law wants to go after him now they will probably have a hard time finding him. While the investigations are going on of Obamas rat pack and his administration activities I think it would be a good idea not to let it be known who they are investigating at any time. That way they won't be warned and have a chance to flee the country. Look at how they did Roger Stone. There was no chance that man could have gotten away the way they barged in and grabbed him. So they need to do the same thing to the members of the deep state that had a hand in the dirty dealings. And they need to grab them all at the same time before they know what hit them.

    • And I'm betting he'll get to keep ALL of his retirement benefits, since he was allowed to resign instead of being FIRED, or better ARRESTED...

    • This man is very dangerous... he knows where all of the skeletons are buried, no one in government is going to mess with him... He may well end up dying by suicide shortly.  The Left can't allow him to remain around in his old age he may develop a conscience.

  • Pardon my French, what is it about these old farts that stay in these lucrative positions into their 80's.  Don't they ever desire a real life ........ like going fishing or managing a kids Little League team?  THIS is a major problem ... we have these lifetime leeches entrenched in positions of power.

    • Fornicate them!!!
