My Best of the Week - May 9
FBI purging agents who attended Jan 6 rally, Clinton campaign lied about Fusion GPS, US intel helped kill Russian Generals
How US Intelligence is Helping Ukraine Kill Russian Generals
ANALYSIS – I have written about how the staggering number of Russian generals killed in combat in Ukraine is a big deal. Some have argued that Russian brigadier generals are more akin to NATO colonels, hence not as significant, and that their doctrine relies on ‘leading from the front.’
This is especially true since they can’t rely on their junior officers and noncommissioned troops.
However, to me this still could not explain the number of senior commanders killed in only a few weeks of fighting – now reportedly up to 12. Especially since there has been no information of any Ukrainian commanders of that rank being lost under the massive Russian onslaught.
Previously I noted how the Ukrainians were specifically targeting Russian command posts and the generals themselves as part of a special mission set and objective to decapitate the Russian command leadership on the ground.
I explained that:
A dedicated team of Ukrainian military intelligence special operations forces has been tasked with specifically locating and targeting Russia’s officer class, according to a person in Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s inner circle.
“They look for high profile generals, pilots, artillery commanders,” said the person. “They have all their details, names, army numbers,” adding that the officers were then targeted either with sniper fire or artillery.

Is FBI Purging Agents Who Simply Attended Jan 6 Rally?
Bureau whistleblowers are claiming that the FBI is using the January 6 riot at the Capitol as a pretext to perform a political purge of agents. This purge targets FBI agents and other employees who simply exercised their constitutionally protected rights and attended the January 6 rally – and committed no crimes.
“The employees did not enter the United States Capitol and have not been charged with any crime” but are allegedly still being fired, said the House Judiciary GOP in a Twitter post on Friday, citing unnamed whistleblowers at the bureau.

Counsel Durham Tells Judge that Clinton Campaign Lied about Fusion GPS Doing ‘Legal Work’
In order to bolster his case against Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) in the investigation of the discredited Steel ‘Russia Collusion’ Dossier used to smear former President Donald Trump, Special Counsel John Durham has alerted the judge presiding over the case against a former Clinton campaign lawyer that Hillary and the DNC likely violated campaign laws.
This, in order to show that they are lying about the opposition research firm Fusion GPS (Fusion) doing legal work for them, hence having legal ‘privilege’ to keep them from disclosing documents relating to their conspiracy to smear Trump.
Epoch News (ET) notes that: “Fusion’s services included helping create the dossier compiled by ex-British spy Christopher Steele. The dossier’s allegations against Trump, which were salacious and unsubstantiated, were promoted heavily by the Clinton campaign and Democrats in their bid to get Clinton elected and, later, to impeach Trump.”
While not admitting wrongdoing, both the DNC and Clinton campaign paid fines and entered into conciliation agreements with the Federal Elections Commission (FEC) over false reporting of payments.
Durham argues that this helps show that Fusion did not provide legal services to the other parties, rendering their privilege claims moot and is using the FEC’s findings to support his position.
