Whew! At Least He Wasn't Implicated In Criminal Charges

Second h/t of the day to a reader--first was re Kilimnik. 

Not implicated in the criminal charges--that's the point, isn't it? What isn't forbidden by the law is allowed, and honi soit qui mal y pense. It seems pretty pointless to even comment on this. It simply illustrates where we've arrived as an empire. The Daily Mail has all the news that's not fit to print in our own MSM. Wikipedia has the bio:

Louis Joseph Freeh (born January 6, 1950) is an American attorney and former judge who served as the fifth Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation from September 1993 to June 2001. Freeh began his career as a special agent in the FBI, and was later an Assistant United States Attorney and United States District Judge of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. A Republican, he was later appointed as FBI director by President Bill Clinton. He is now a lawyer and consultant in the private sector.

What can I say? My career trajectory was different. OTOH, Freeh's career isn't much different than that of subsequent FBI Directors. Public service, private sector--in the big picture it all tends to meld into self service. There's a particularly shameless quality to both sides of this equation, but it's The Way We Live Now. Tom Wolfe is dead, so who will be the Trollope for our era?

EXCLUSIVE: Former FBI director Louis Freeh gave $100,000 to a private trust for Joe Biden's grandchildren and spoke with the then vice president in 2016 'to explore lucrative future work options' with Hunter as the middle man

  • can reveal former FBI director Louis Freeh gave $100,000 to a private trust for Joe Biden's grandchildren
  • Freeh spoke with the then-Vice President in 2016 'to explore with him some future work options', emails from Hunter's laptop reveal 
  • The bombshell communications from July 2016 raise the question: Was Joe Biden discussing future private business deals while still in office
  • In an email marked 'confidential and privileged', Freeh wrote to Hunter that he 'would be delighted to do future work with you'
  • Emails show that at the time Freeh was working for three men who were later found to be corrupt foreign criminals. 
  • Freeh was not involved in their corruption offenses or implicated in the charges against them
  • Freeh, who served as FBI director under Bill Clinton and George Bush, ran a consultancy firm with highly controversial clients
  • His clients included the now-jailed Malaysian prime minister who stole billions of dollars from his country and a Romanian real estate tycoon convicted of bribery



  1. Shyster con men = (Political appointees + govt bureaucrats) x money grubbing opportunists.

  2. Freeh was very close to Morris Dees

  3. Wasn't Freeh one of the house moralists at the FBI? I'd like to say I'm mystified at how DC operators get away with this sort of practice, but what Freeh did wasn't unusual or illegal. And his sucking up to Biden's cretin son, wow. Freeh was pretty high up to be a kiss ass.
