You may not know about the latest Inspector General’s report on the malfeasance over at the FBI. Understandably, as the media has been obsessed with this child detention center circus. Media has taken their focus on the story to stalker levels, one step away from boiling Trump’s pet rabbit. Meanwhile, the Inspector General released the aforementioned report on how the FBI is full of bias crotch puppets. Trey Gowdy addressed the swirling poopnado in his opening remarks:
The power to indict is the power to impact reputations, the power to deprive people of their liberty, and the power in some instances to take the life of citizens. We give police and prosecutors tremendous powers and with those powers comes a corresponding expectation of fairness and just dealing. This Inspector General’s report should conjure anger, disappointment and sadness in everyone who reads it. This report lays bare the bias, the animus, the prejudging of facts by senior FBI agents and senior attorneys. And attempts to minimize and mitigate this bias are so antithetical to what we want and deserve in our law enforcement officers, it’s dangerous.
Of course he’s right. The FBI holds tremendous power over American citizens. It appears, in this case, they abused that power to exact their own agendas.
That should scare the wee out of everyone who looks at the report. It’s one thing to be biased for your preferred presidential candidate. I hold nothing against an FBI official if they voted for Hillary, Bernie, Rubio, or Harambe. They have as much right to have a political bias as any of us. But to then channel that bias into real power, to focus their bias into efforts to derail a presidential campaign, or discredit a fairly elected president, is beyond the pale.
Now enjoy this, beep beep.
