Im sorry but the FBI does not deserve any respect...just look at their history and all the corruption involved, its very unlikely all that just went away over time! LOL They should have been shut down years ago imo.

President Trump Calls the FBI "a cancer in our country" -- Repubs Hate Law Enforcement Now
Not all Republicans hate the law, and law enforcement. There are some who still tolerate it.

It is too bad the lemming mentality has so many repeating the nonsense coming from the white house.

That being said - let's not pretend the tax and bank fraud from 5-10 years ago has anything to do with Trump.

And let's not pretend Trump has anything to do with giving a rat's ass about anything but himself.

Its just getting started too. The weaponizing of the politically active intel agencies of the Obama admin is exposed. May the guilty rot in hell/Gitmo.

Holy Mother of God! Are people really this brainwashed? Does anyone really believe a word that comes out of Trumps mouth at this point?

Trump is a liar and a crook. Most of the people he surrounds himself with are liars and crooks. The only people rotting anyplace will be him and his cronies when they wind up in jail.

Do you have specific factual examples of this?

The FBI has been a crooked trainwreck for YEARS this is nothing new.

They have had spies in their organization, still do obviously...they had one feeding all our secrets to the Russians for over 20 years! Their culture of corruption and coverups makes that kind of thing impossible to root out.

They dropped the ball on major terrorism cases that led directly to 9/11.

They have politicized their function and used it to harass and subvert our democracy.

Long list of unforgivable screwups and poor behavior.

It is only now that their aggression against our democracy is coming to light. The other stuff was mostly incompetence and bureaucratic problems. This is intentional dereliction of duty, evil stuff.

You don't need to take Trump's word for it. The FBI has a long sordid history of sneaky illegal behavior that goes all the way back to the tenure of that cross-dressing deviant that ran the bureau in the 50s.

Whenever he points out the CORRUPTION IN THE DOJ AND FBI, he says he is NOT talking about the rank and file. Just the top brass.

What on earth are you talking about? You asked me for the quote source. I pointed out that it had already been sourced twice in this thread.

Its been said enough and doesn't need to be stated before every comment on the corruption in the FBI. IMO
Maybe the low information or slower consumer of current events still need the crutch to understand common knowledge.
I don't get why you think I'm defending the FBI here. Did you not read what I wrote?

I'm just commenting on certain ironies I see in that Cohn, who helped run the FBI in its worst days, was a close friend of Trump's.
