We’ve said it before and we’ll say it now. Everyone, pro-Trump, anti-Trump, other, should be very concerned about the politicization of the FBI and other agencies. This is dangerous in the extreme.
There appears to be no Russian collusion (of course things could always change) but there does appear to have been extensive collusion against a duly elected president. That is unfortunate and may in the end prove to be a real stain on this country.
And just think. Had Hillary won we’d likely know absolutely nothing about what went down. That is actually a pretty chilling thought.
The Justice Department’s inability, or at least unwillingness, to reveal exactly how, when, and why the FBI opened a counterintelligence investigation has fueled suspicions that a spy who worked for both the FBI and the CIA was deployed against the Trump campaign, probably in Britain — where Papadopoulos had met with suspected agents of the Kremlin, and where Steele compiled the dossier via reports from his unidentified sources.
From painstaking research, Nunes and committee staff believe they have identified such a spy. When they demanded information about this person — whose name remains unknown to the public — the Justice Department’s response was not “No, you’re wrong, there was no spying.” It was first to bloviate that the department would not be “extorted” (Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s unusual understanding of what is more commonly known as congressional oversight) and then to claim that providing the information sought by the committee would risk “potential loss of human lives, damage to relationships with valued international partners, compromise of ongoing criminal investigations, and interference with intelligence activities.”
By now, Nunes has learned that if he is catching flak, he is over the target.
Hiding using a “top secret” tag. This is an old and obvious tactic by the bureaucracy. We can’t tell you the truth because it will compromise… blah, blah, blah. That looks like bull in this case.
