Maria Zakharova: Why is the FBI in control of the US election monitoring procedure?

Edition Daily Mail announces a decision by Barack Obama to dismiss the head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation James Komi after the presidential election. The publication refers to sources close to the situation, and reports that Obama is ready to accept this decision after a dialogue with the adviser Valerie Jarett.

The submission says that Komi, who started and closed the investigation by H. Clinton's correspondence, was not dismissed before the elections, as Obama considered that this could affect the voting process. The current US president, according to the Daily Mail, refrained from such a move, since dismissing the head of the FBI would mean pressure on the investigation. And now Komi Clinton's correspondence investigation has closed, which means Obama’s hands on the current FBI director are untied.

According to Valerie Jarrett, the dismissal of James Komi in the country's parliament will be supported by both Democrats and Republicans.

This is another manifestation of the so-called American “democracy”, on the basis of which one can get rid of a person who attempted to start an investigation of a crime on a state scale committed by a government official (at that time, Clinton was the US Secretary of State).

Against this background, the Russian Foreign Ministry reports on the FBI’s attempts to put pressure on Russian diplomats in the United States.

Maria Zakharova: Why is the FBI in control of the US election monitoring procedure?

The situation describes Maria Zakharova:

FBI - Fse We fight Russia

I do not understand what is happening with Washington: the hand of Moscow in all places, "Kremlin hackers", leaks of secret information, a ban on Russian diplomats from approaching polling stations. It came to open intimidation of employees of diplomatic institutions. Thus, the State Department recommended that the Russian representatives “not to approach the polling stations on their own”, and the authorities of some states went even further and threatened with criminal prosecution. That is, you cannot even look at the voting procedure.
But at the weekend, what happened is still not described in the textbooks. Washington connected to the case of special services.

In recent days, there have been instances of direct pressure on Russian overseas agencies in the United States by the FBI, whose agents, with undisguised threat, made it clear that we should not be interested in the American elections. Moreover, in Houston, in order to make such a “warning”, an entire special operation was arranged in the style of Hollywood militants with the blocking of an employee of our Consulate General on the road. They stopped the car and began to “inspire” that it is impossible not only to watch the vote, you cannot even think about it. Exactly: why do you think about our elections? The foremost guys - they have already been taught to think about permission.
This case is not unique.

Our Embassy in Washington made an appropriate presentation to the State Department.

But the question arises: what can a foreign diplomat see at a US polling station such that “Mr. Smith” took up the case, and why is the election monitoring procedure generally controlled by the FBI ?!

          Apparently, the closure of the Clinton correspondence case was Komi’s mistake. Indeed, in life, as it happens, when the kidnappers get theirs from the kidnapped, then, as a rule, they liquidate him. This is what they will do with Komi.

    Well, after all ... it's not just diplomats, but from Russia .. Considering that relations between our countries are extremely tense, the Americans have every right to forbid foreign citizens (even under diplomatic cover) to their huts without explanation .
    Tough ...? And how else should the service responsible for internal security act? Having before us the sad experience of the Kiev Maidan, we still do not stop playing "democracy" and the American ambassador makes a whole tour with us before the elections, meeting and working with our rotten so-called Opposition. There, such tricks as we see do not pass. Are you all surprised?

    But because in our country the KGB was a "devil of Hell" (according to their and our liberals' interpretation), and the FBI was the basis and support of American "democracy". They can do everything in all countries, but no one can do the same in the USA. The limit of arrogance and "narcissism".
    I once wrote when considering this topic, and why, on this basis, do not prohibit the American representatives from controlling the elections taking place in our country. Or weak? But the grounds - here they are from the United States.

    It is time to understand and live your own mind, and not stick your nose into other people's affairs, and even publicly resent that they are not allowed! Not allowed - and do not!

    Do not let the West’s controllers go to our most honest and free, as well as fair and popular, besides democratic and liberal Russian elections.

    But you are proud that these gentlemen from Europe are present at the elections in Russia, considering their presence a sign of approval of Russian sovereign democracy. As if by a seal of the "I approve" type on all procedures of the Russian election procedure, whatever it may be, starting from churovism and early guardians of justice. And the current churov in a skirt is not much better ...
