Considering your lofty legal position, it is appalling you are so casual and comfortable uttering not-so-veiled threats against American citizens whose inalienable rights you and the rest of the Justice Department are sworn to protect. Criticizing “public servants” is the pure exercise of our Free Speech. You “will not stand by silently when their integrity is unfairly attacked.”? Is that a threat, General?
In just recent history agents have lied, targeted innocent citizens, tried to overturn an election, covered up crimes, and created other crimes just to solve them. Yet none of these infractions were found or corrected internally – by the world’s premier investigatory agency. There can be only 2 possible explanations. Either the FBI is amazingly incompetent, or it is completely corrupted.
That would include especially target number one: Donald Trump. For a masterful explication of how this amazing clusterfuck developed, I commend you to The Conservative Treehouse website where the writer who styles himself as “Sundance” put together a four-part report on how the original sin of RussiaGate metastasized into the stage-four cancer of institutional necrosis that culminated in this week’s raid on Mar-a-Lago.
An FBI application for a search warrant requires an affidavit from an agent swearing under oath to the need and circumstances for a warrant. According to Alan Dershowitz, to get a warrant there should be no less intrusive means to obtain the evidence – like asking for it from a subject who is already cooperating with the investigation. Alternatively, there could be an immediate danger of evidence being destroyed – while being reviewed by other federal employees. Sure.
I don’t need the DoJ to protect my feelings, because I’m not a snowflake. I need it to protect my person and my property from real threats. If Merrick Garland hasn’t noticed, there were “mostly peaceful” protesters that murdered people and burned down our cities last summer — and none of it was done at a school board meeting by angry parents.
he Right showed their frustration for the Biden Administration and the Justice Department on many fronts, from the claim of Americans being Domestic Terrorists to the border situation to the weaponizing of the IRS to spy on the spending habits of Americans. Take your pick on which of these is the most egregious.
