(Patriot Insider) – A former FBI agent admitted to intentionally destroying evidence in a 2018 corruption case involving a pro-Trump Arkansas Senator.
As part of a plea agreement filed Wednesday, former agent Robert Cessario pleaded guilty to a charge of “corrupt destruction of record in an official proceeding” according to KATV-TV.
Cessario admitted to destroying evidence on his computer along with paying a business to help him delete files and wipe his computer’s hard drive of which the contents had been requested by a federal court for analysis in the trial of Arkansas state Sen. Jon Woods.
“I erased the contents of the computer hard [drive] knowing that the court [had] ordered that the computer be submitted for a forensic examination,” Cessario stated as part of the plea deal.
“I did so with the intention of making the contents of the computer’s hard [drive] unavailable for forensic examination. At the time, I knew that the contents of the hard drive were relevant to an official proceeding.”
“I corruptly performed and had performed, the erasures with intent to impair the integrity and availability of the computer hard drive and its contents for use in that official proceeding.”
Woods was the first lawmaker in the state of Arkansas to endorse Donald Trump for president. According to the Arkansas Times, he was convicted of wire fraud for accepting kickbacks from Ecclesia College in exchange for sending state funds to the school.
After being convicted, he was sentenced to 18-years in prison, which he is currently serving, however he continues to contest his conviction, primarily because of Cessario’s actions and the fact that the majority of evidence for the case was deleted from the agent’s computer.
The Blaze reported that the computer contained audio files of conversations between Woods and fellow Arkansas lawmaker, state Rep. Micah Neal. A total of 119 recordings on the computer were requested by the federal court but Cessario only provided 39 of them.
The rest Cessario had wiped at a computer shop.
Woods’ lawyers have alleged other improprieties involving Cessario in their client’s prosecution including a previous lawyer for Woods also having represented Cessario in his divorce proceedings who advised Woods to meet with the agent without legal counsel present.
It sure sounds like Woods should get a new trial but unfortunately it doesn’t change the fact that Cessario destroyed evidence that may or may not have helped Woods.
The FBI has become corrupt because of individuals like Cessario who put politics above integrity and the job they swore to do.
To make matters worse is the fact that there are agents who still believe in the good the FBI can do but are sitting quietly by and allowing this kind of corruption to go on unchecked.
We need more FBI agents to stand up and become whistleblowers. It’s the only way to root out the corruption and restore integrity to the agency. Though it just might be too far gone at this point.

Yes, the FBI and DOJ are both too far gone to be able to right the ship. Too many agents from the very top agents working the streets and courts, are pro democratic and will do anything to help Obama, Biden and the Clintons to ever be unbiased in any court proceedings. They are part of the lying Democratic Machine.
Yep!! Soros owns the FBI & DOJ, just like he owns every Puppet put in Office by his Blood money, and is unstoppable and will never be held accountable!!!
This is the same thing that Hillary Clinton did, and she was not prosecuted.
FBI are destroying the lives of hard working Americans.
Time to destroy the FBI.
This falls under the Title of Dicktator Hindenbiden the Master of SATAN !
Agree to all above and include the Demo machine to be exterminated.
See the Clint Eastwood/Warner Bros. film; “Richard Jewell.” FBI Agent Patrick Buckley led the FBI’s frame-up of Jewell for the Atlanta Olympics bombing murders, thus keeping the actual bomber, Eric Rudolph, at large. Jewell never saw justice; died young. Agent Buckley had briefly flown from his MI5/FBI mission in Ireland to “lead the investigation” in Atlanta. Buckley’s MI5/FBI team departed Ireland, evidently mission accomplished (defeat of the IRA to free-up Britain’s military for Neo-Con use in Iraq, etc), the evening of 15Aug1998 upon the murder of 29 children in Omagh, Co. Tyrone.
Before Buckley’s deployment to Ireland we had defeated two series of his crimes; 1) He had framed me so cunningly for a mass murder that I was doomed. Murderer David Biro saved me by blabbing through Buckley’s cover into Life Without Parole. Biro was sixteen when, using FBI Agent Lewis’s 357 Magnum, he murdered his neighboring Langert family; and 2) in completely separate Case US91CR911, US Prosecutor James Fleissner successfully pleaded US Judge Lindberg to be allowed to abandon the entire case against us. They had no choice; the only evidence against us, Agent Buckley’s audiotape, had proven to be massively “doctored.” Our case for damages against the FBI for both series of crimes was “can’t lose;” but no law firm or lawyer in the US proved willing to take the case.
Soon as the Republicans take control they must clean house of all the corrupted people in DOJ and FBI.

When an FBI or CIA agent is confirmed to have framed someone, they need to be fired and imprisoned.
Sadly, an ‘American agent’ admitted in 1997 to causing General Patton’s death via a car ‘accident’ shortly after WWII ended (in 1947?). It proves the power and corruption of the deep state for decades. Even FD Roosevelt lamented the perceived power of the FBI/CIA and the threat to our democracy. Look what they are doing today to attack innocent Americans! Biden just approved $5 million for more social media surveillance efforts by a ‘ministry of truth’ to be administered by a group of far left ‘news organizations’. A direct attack on our 1A using non-government groups. Democrats Corruption must stop.
He’ll be nailed to the wall since he’s a Republican.
