Leftwing Media Hires Politicized Government Agent: Comey’s Former Assistant Signs on With CNN

Via BizPac Review


CNN’s decision to hire former FBI Director James Comey’s assistant disturbs veteran members of the bureau, former agents told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

The relationship between former FBI agent Josh Campbell, the cable news network and Campbell’s seemingly close history with former boss James Comey, have raised a number of questions from these agents over the propriety of Campbell’s new job.

“What can [Campbell] contribute? I don’t think that he would be someone who could offer any type of, really, knowledge about what law enforcement analysts are, because, what is his experience?” said former Special Agent Jack Garcia, a 26 year FBI veteran.

“Something smells so bad about this whole thing.”

Garcia and another 25 year veteran of the FBI noted to TheDCNF that Campbell’s mere 10 year career was largely marked by time spent at headquarters and that he lacked field knowledge to accurately represent the bureau. Campbell’s last job in the FBI was spent in a media relations role out of the Los Angeles field office.

His last day at the bureau was Jan. 29 where his official flyer, obtained by The Daily Caller, reveals he understood his future role at the network as a position to “defend the bureau.” CNN describes him merely as a “law-enforcement analyst.”

……Campbell’s online history, reviewed by TheDCNF, shows a reverence for CNN and Comey. Since joining CNN, Campbell deleted his personal website, which included numerous photos of himself with Comey. In the sites featured image, it shows a photo of himself sitting behind the director during congressional testimony which Comey delivered after President Donald Trump fired him.

Campbell appears to have attended the testimony with his future CNN colleague and former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara.

The flyer includes a photo of Campbell at the set of CNN New Day in New York City despite his job posting at the Los Angeles field office at the time.

……Comments on Campbell’s LinkedIn profile corroborate the described sense of anger by other agents.



Campbell went from being Comey’s knob polisher to working at CNN. Not much of a career change.
