    Just a poll on what people now think of the FBI.

    Rank-and-file generally uphold the code.

    The leadership was weaponized during Obama's run. They have no credibility.

    It’s time for The IG to Investigate Comey.

    McCabe’s firing is proof that Comey’s firing was justified.

    I still respect the professionalism of the FBI. It's the political appointees at the TOP that are rotten.

    And it's getting harder to hold that respect with the ENTIRE dept seemingly distracted by POLITICAL vendettas and not paying attention to the terrorism cases they've allowed to progress. Or paying attention to the management of the NICS (insta-check gun). The result of that is about 5 or 7 of the past mass shootings had BEEN on their radar or because the ball was dropped on MAINTAINING the database.

    SO -- it's nut-cutting time. Literally... If they want to keep my admiration, the TOP folks need to FOCUS on their primary responsibilities. Not attempting a political coup or out selling bullshit Russian Propaganda to the media as a valid Intel Report.

    The FBI has been politicized and is compromised.

    They're more worried about people downloading music than potential mass murderers. The whole organization needs restructured.

    This is nothing new. Remember when Hoover went hunting for communists?

    It's all a matter of who is in power as to which side they take.

    Anyone with half a brain can see that there is something wrong here when the FBI can't seem to catch Hillary on one lie on the record after this?



    Then they open up on Flynn by catching him on one lie and basically destroying his life because of it? It should be noted that the lie had nothing to do with Russian collusion. I even be any of us could be tripped up under investigation as well.

    Only partisan shills and people who are asleep do not see this obvious favoritism, which the poll numbers suggest.
