The usual swamp creatures, excepting John McCain, have reacted negatively to the three Trump Tweets below that make note of recent news events concerning the politicization of the FBI.
The criticisms of Trump from the political establishment seem very weak to me. Obviously, something was amiss with the FBI’s free pass to Hillary Clinton on her email scandal. More recent news casts the neutrality of the FBI into question, which prompted the Tweets by Trump.
Nonetheless, some heavy hitters stepped up to the plate to defend the FBI.
Excerpt from CNN
Trump’s tweets about the FBI garnered criticism on social media and elsewhere. Comey posting a defense of the FBI on Instagram Sunday night, quoting his own testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee in June.
”‘I want the American people to know this truth: The FBI is honest. The FBI is strong. And the FBI is, and always will be, independent.’ Me (June 8, 2017),” Comey wrote.
Former Attorney General Eric Holder tweeted: “The FBI’s reputation is not in ‘tatters’. It’s composed of the same dedicated men and women who have always worked there and who do a great, apolitical job.
You’ll find integrity and honesty at FBI headquarters and not at 1600 Penn Ave right now(.)”
And fellow Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, of South Carolina, said to tread lightly.
“There’s an ongoing criminal investigation. Comey may be part of it,” Graham told CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “You tweet and comment regarding ongoing criminal investigations at your own peril. I’d be careful if I were you, Mr. President.”
The FBI Agents Association also defended the bureau, posting a statement from the group’s president, Thomas O’Connor, on Twitter.
“Every day, FBI Special Agents put their lives on the line to protect the American public from national security and criminal threats,” the statement read. “Agents perform these duties with unwavering integrity and professionalism and a focus on complying with the law and the Constitution.
“This is why the FBI continues to be the premier law enforcement agency in the world. FBI Agents are dedicated to their mission; suggesting otherwise is simply false,” it said.
Sorry, Mr. FBI Guy, but the corrupt recent leadership of the FBI reflects poorly on the honest agents you defend. You guys were done in by Attorneys General Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch. And of course, your former director, James Comey.
One more thing. The disinformation in the comments section at the British paper The Independent are appalling. They were either written by paid stooges or every ignorant people.
Apparently they managed to rattle the cage of this miserable creature which is of course very nice. He makes things only worse by trying to blame everybody else. We all know he is a despicable twerp by now and, judging by his remarks, he certainly is not very intelligent. His IQ, in my opinion, cannot be higher than 70. So what does that tell us about the people who voted him into office?
IQ of 70? Trump’s business success requires a superior IQ, not the IQ of a retarded Dindu. Trump has been Tweeting for years the same things he’s saying now about government corruption. Apparently, liberals don’t believe in the idea that government can be corrupt.
That belief isn’t going to serve them well as events unfold.
