You seem to have neglected to post the messages where source #1 and #2 both discuss FBI involvement, Justice Department and Internal Affairs.
Source #2 above indicated FBI involvement was non-existant...they didn't care. Internal Affairs was related to our reporting of Doty's harassment of one of our moderators, in addition to his threatening of the DNI source himself. At least in one case - there could certainly have been others. Other places where internal affairs or Justice Dept was mentioned had no supporting evidence. Yes - we have a number of the messages in the archive along with a larger number that we've received directly since then.
Your quote re: FBI was about the previous meeting involving an interview as part of a clearance review of source #2.
No - all quotes were laid out in the exact sequence that the conversation took place... He was referring to the FBI's interest in the subject above which the two sources were discussing. And the FBI, while there on normal business (quite likely a clearance review as you note), when the Soap Opera subject at hand (Gene) was mentioned they had no interest.
I wish I had more time that the few minutes a day available to respond properly to the issues you have raised here. Perhaps we can continue this after the holidays?
It's probably not fair that I type posts like the one above in less than 15 minutes...lol. Yes - we can discuss in greater detail after the holidays. In fact, maybe we should hash it out in even greater detail via email - so that maybe we can save our sources a little bit of grief over how much material we're releasing here.... lol
