Former FBI Agent Involved in Trump/Russia Probe Indicted for… Working for Russia

It’s interesting how the news lately has become its own version of comedy; sometimes, I must double-check that what I’m reading isn’t a Babylon Bee satire headline. I’d say I’ve got a 50/50 shot most days. 

This week’s most incredible headline has so many ‘funny if it wasn’t true’ aspects that I’m not sure I’ll do all of it justice in this one article, but I’ll give it my best shot.

My favorite evening news show led last night with the breaking news that a former high-level FBI agent had been arrested for various reasons, including essentially working as an unclaimed foreign agent. That alone is pretty damning, but when you add that the individual in question was accepting payment covertly from a sanctioned Russian oligarch, that raises some eyebrows.

However, even my most beloved evening news anchor buried the real lede of the story; this now-disgraced retired FBI agent was none other than Charles McGonigal. 

Sound familiar? He should; he was one of the leading agents to spearhead the Trump-Russia probe witch hunt.

Retired FBI agent Charles McGonigal was indicted on five counts of violating and conspiring to violate the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA) and conspiring to commit money laundering and money laundering. That sounds pretty bad; let’s dive deeper, shall we?

U.S. Attorney Damian Williams said of the charges:
“Charles McGonigal, a former high-level FBI official, and Sergey Shestakov, a Court interpreter, violated U.S. sanctions by agreeing to provide services to Oleg Deripaska, a sanctioned Russian oligarch.”

So in layman’s terms, this alleged traitor and his compatriot Sergey worked for a Russian oligarch that the United States government had sanctioned, all while also “investigating” the alleged election interference and conspiracy that the Trump campaign was working with Russia to cheat the presidential election. 

Let that sink in for a minute.

Indeed, they did know better, and you can’t convince me otherwise.

I find it interesting the parallels between federal agencies. It’s fascinating how military brass always seems to land big foreign contracts or high-paying defense contractor positions. Continue reading story HERE.
