So ya never heard of J.Edgar Hoover?I just turned 59 years old. For my entire life the FBI has been held up and regarded as THE premier, law enforcement and investigative agency, not just in this country, but among the best anywhere in the world. Most people felt this way and ESPECIALLY the hard core, law and order, right wing conservatives !!!
I am amazed at the turn of events. The total reversal since Trump's election. The very people who have always given the FBI almost total support have now, just since the election, made a 180 degree about face and are attacking them as partisan, corrupt and political ?? In recent memory the only times the FBI's motives and actions have been questioned were under Democratic presidents. Waco, Ruby Ridge, and Fast and Furious but these were more aimed at portraying the Dem in the white house as anti-gun or something.
I am NOT saying they FBI (or any of the other alphabet agencies) are prefect. Far from it. But I do question the timing of this particular and very malicious reversal from the usually supportive law and and order right ??
Trump is a lair. He's bombastic and hyperbolic. He's narcissistic to the point of paranoia. Is it possible that maybe, just maybe, the FBI is simply one of Trump's whipping boys ?? That, not unlike the news media, except of course FAUX news, and like many in his own staff, if they don't show HIM total loyalty he has no use for them and proceeds to attack ?? Let's face it, Trump has in one way or form attacked pretty much every law enforcement and Intel agency in the country. Are we to believe Trump's miscellaneous ramblings or those of his sycophants ? When exactly DID the FBI and the other agencies supposedly turn into these highly partisan, highly political hot beds of conspiracy ?? Because a few people that work there don't like Trump ?
