Welcome To Trumpland, Courtesy Of The FBI
“The FBI is Trumpland,” one federal agent admitted bluntly.
The Guardian reports:
“Current and former FBI officials, none of whom were willing or cleared to speak on the record, have described a chaotic internal climate that resulted from outrage over director James Comey’s July decision not to recommend an indictment over Clinton’s maintenance of a private email server on which classified information transited.
“’The FBI is Trumpland,’ said one current agent.”
The federal agent, who cannot be named but is a current agent, explained that Hillary Clinton is “the antichrist personified to a large swath of FBI personnel.”
Furthermore, the leaks that have sprung from the agency are because many of those agents aren’t just anti-Clinton; they are actively pro-Trump.
Questions were first raised last week, when FBI director James Comey released a letter stating that a trove of emails that may or may not be related to the Clinton email case had been discovered, and, as such, the investigation would be resumed. The letter seemed almost intentionally designed to create an atmosphere of innuendo, speculation and intrigue – allowing GOP candidate Donald Trump to spin his current, wild narrative with no relation to facts.
It Was ‘Fear’ That Drove FBI Director Comey
As Reuters reported, Comey’s controversial decision “was driven in part by a fear of leaks from within his agency.”
The same report admitted that “a faction of investigators” based in the FBI’s New York Field Office is “known to be hostile to Hillary Clinton.”
And so, it seems as though these openly anti-Clinton, pro-Trump agents have forced Comey’s hand through fear-based tactics…and they’ve worked. And, in doing so, these agents have placed the FBI squarely into the middle of a presidential election.
Doesn’t sound very Democratic, does it.
The ‘Evidence’ Is Ridiculous
Furthermore, it’s been discovered that those anti-Clinton agents are the ones pushing for an investigation of the Clinton Foundation…and their “evidence” has been lifted from the laughably untrue, hyper-partisan, conspiracy-theory laden book, Clinton Cash.
Yes. Federal agents are taking that book seriously…and then growing enraged when their “case” is dismissed for being weak and foolish.
The Wall Street Journal reported:
“Secret recordings of a suspect talking about the Clinton Foundation fueled an internal battle between FBI agents who wanted to pursue the case and corruption prosecutors who viewed the statements as worthless hearsay, people familiar with the matter said.
“Agents, using informants and recordings from unrelated corruption investigations, thought they had found enough material to merit aggressively pursuing the investigation into the foundation that started in summer 2015 based on claims made in a book by a conservative author called Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich, these people said.”
As MNSBC explained, “For much of the American mainstream, Clinton Cash was a partisan polemic that was better left ignored. For some at the FBI, it served as an inspiration for an actual investigation.”

These newest developments into the questionable conduct of Director Comey and the FBI itself raises even bigger questions. There is no longer a doubt that Comey’s vague letter absolutely inserted the agency into politics.
Instead, we should be asking, when the FBI goes sour…who investigates the FBI?
