    Trump is attacking the First Amendment

    https://www.law.cornell.edu/constitu...irst_amendment

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
    So when a few FBI agents don't like the president and discuss that with each other; in Trump's world that means that they should be fired from their jobs.

    Now these texts that two people exchanged in private not only impacted their careers, but also is causing a large scale attack on their entire organization. This is Trump World. How long until they undo your protections sufficiently that the bill of rights is defacto repealed?

    There is no First Amendment protection when two FBI agents' duties are influenced, reflect, and actions reflect their political bias.

    Most federal agents are conservative and most vote Republican.
    The FBI handed Trump the election by reopening the HRC case.

    This is the agent that got fired for 'helping' Hillary...

    Exclusive: Controversial FBI agent co-wrote initial draft of explosive Comey letter reopening Clinton email probe

    Emails obtained by CNN show the FBI agent at the center of a Capitol Hill storm played a key role in a controversial FBI decision that upended Hillary Clinton's campaign just days before the 2016 election: the letter to Congress by then-FBI Director James Comey announcing the bureau was investigating newly discovered Clinton emails.

    The new revelation about FBI agent Peter Strzok comes as Republicans accuse him of being sympathetic to Clinton while seeking to undermine Donald Trump during the heat of the 2016 campaign season.

    Strzok, who co-wrote what appears to be the first draft that formed the basis of the letter Comey sent to Congress, also supported reopening the Clinton investigation once the emails were discovered on disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner's laptop, according to a source familiar with Strzok's thinking. The day after Strzok sent his draft to his colleagues, Comey released the letter to Congress, reigniting the email controversy in the final days of the campaign.

    Strzok did, however, harbor reservations about Comey making a public announcement just days before the election and sent a text message to that effect, two sources said. And Strzok's text messages provided to Congress show him grappling with the fallout of making the letter public, according to a CNN review of his texts.

    [...]

    This new information reveals a more complicated portrait of Strzok than many of his critics have painted in public. Republicans have seized on text messages between Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who were often critical of Trump, to characterize the two -- who were having an extramarital affair -- as part of an effort to go easy on Clinton and get tough with Trump.

    Not sure this is entirely true, but setting that aside.

    What actions of these agents can you point to that illustrate this unprofessional conduct?

    Nothing has to be proved to substantiate my statement. The evidence points to a blatant appearance of unfairness and political bias. The FBI and the DIJ are supposed to be non-political and unbiased.

    Peter Strzok to Lisa Page:

    I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office (Andrew McCabe) that there’s no way he gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.

    So look, you say we can text on that phone when we talk about Hillary because it can't be traced.

    Strzok et al. are now working for Mueller.

    No.

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion so long as it doesn't impact their work. Unless you can demonstrate it impacted their work, their opinions are irrelevant.
