From the agency which has broken more laws than anyone --- except for the CIA --- and which started the whole process of blackmailing the ruling elite in order to rule the country from behind the scenes.

J. Edgar Hoover's Secret Files

Quote:
Helen W. Gandy (April 8, 1897 July 7, 1988) was an American civil servant. For 54 years, she was the secretary to Federal Bureau of Investigation director J. Edgar Hoover, who called her "indispensable". She exercised great behind-the-scenes influence on Hoover and the workings of the Bureau. Following Hoover's death in 1972, she spent weeks destroying his "Personal File", thought to be where the most incriminating material he used to manipulate and control the most powerful figures in Washington was kept....

Gandy stated that Hoover had left standing instructions to destroy his personal papers upon his death, and that this instruction was confirmed by Tolson and Gray. Gandy stated that she destroyed no official papers, that everything was personal papers of Hoover's. The staff of the subcommittee did not believe her, but she told the committee: "I have no reason to lie." Representative Andrew Maguire (D-New Jersey), a freshman member of the 94th Congress, said "I find your testimony very difficult to believe." ....

In J. Edgar Hoover: The Man and His Secrets, Gentry describes the nature of the files: "... their contents included blackmail material on the patriarch of an American political dynasty, his sons, their wives, and other women; allegations of two homosexual arrests which Hoover leaked to help defeat a witty, urbane Democratic presidential candidate; the surveillance reports on one of America's best-known first ladies and her alleged lovers, both male and female, white and black; the child molestation documentation the director used to control and manipulate one of the Red-baiting proteges; a list of the Bureau's spies in the White House during the eight administrations when Hoover was FBI director; the forbidden fruit of hundreds of illegal wiretaps and bugs, containing, for example, evidence that an attorney general, Tom C. Clark who later became Supreme Court justice, had received payoffs from the Chicago syndicate; as well as celebrity files, with all the unsavory gossip Hoover could amass on some of the biggest names in show business."

President Donald Trump and longtime foil, comedienne Rosie O'Donnell, seemed to find common ground Thursday after Trump resurfaced a December tweet of O'Donnell's calling for the firing of FBI Director James Comey. Trump dismissed Comey on Tuesday.

"FIRE COMEY," wrote O'Donnell on December 20, a month prior to Trump's inauguration, in response to a tweet from former Clinton campaign Press Secretary Brian Fallon criticizing the director's actions during the election.
