A recent poll of Americans showed almost as many distrust the FBI as trust it. And it’s gained a reputation for being used as a political weapon against conservatives and President Trump.
Then, too, there have been editorials from respected commentators pointing out it was the FBI that suggested to social media that they suppress the accurate New York Post reporting about the Biden family’s overseas business scandals – just days before the 2020 election.
Further, polling shows 80% of Americans believe that actually CHANGED the election winner from Trump to Biden.
Recall also the now-debunked 2016 claims of “Russia, Russia Russia” as well as the current “investigation” of Trump for allegedly having documents from his own presidency.
But it’s worse than all that appears.
According to Harry G. Hutchison, senior counsel and director of policy for the American Center for Law and Justice, while Attorney General Merrick Garland insists he will not “stand by silently when [the FBI] integrity is unfairly attacked,” his protestations have no “credibility.”
That’s because, he wrote online, because “FBI leaders have created a world of universal deceit.”
In fact, he wrote, “Just this week, the Washington Times reports that an FBI top agent, Timothy Thibault has left the agency amid charges of political bias regarding an investigation of Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop. Reportedly, Mr. Thibault approved of social media posts criticizing Attorney General William P. Barr for not aggressively prosecuting former President Trump’s political allies. Thibault also liked a post by the Lincoln Project calling Trump a ‘psychologically broken, embittered and deeply unhappy man.'”
And “suspiciously,” it “appears that FBI Supervisory Intelligence Analyst Brian Auten opened an assessment designed to discredit the derogatory information contained in Hunter’s laptop and then falsely label it misinformation,” he explained.
He pointed out that “Thibault’s misbehavior and his active participation in the FBI’s own misinformation campaign – one that rivals the 2016 Russia hoax campaign – has not gone unnoticed by Congress.”
There, Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, dispatched to Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray “a series of three letters questioning Mr. Thibault’s active partisanship and the FBI’s failure to take action regarding Special Agent Thibault’s participation in spreading falsehoods.”
Thibault has, in fact, “joins a distinguished cast of characters that would rival a criminal gang. This cast of characters includes Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Kevin Clinesmith, and others who have participated in the Deep State Revenge Tour against President Donald Trump,” Hutchison charged.
“Many of these individuals engaged in conduct designed to prevent Donald Trump from winning in 2016. After their efforts failed, they engaged in efforts to impair and sabotage his presidency.”
Now it’s “Russiagate, No. 2,” he suggested.
“Because convincing evidence exists showing the FBI interfered with the 2020 election in order to help elect candidate Joe Biden. Facebook head, Mark Zuckerberg, now admits that the company censored and suppressed harmful stories regarding Hunter Biden’s laptop. Instead of reporting on such stories, most media companies claimed that the Biden laptop story was simply Russian misinformation. Now most Americans believe that the failure to accurately report on potentially incriminating information in Hunter’s laptop changed the outcome of the election.”
He wondered if the DOJ and FBI have been “institutionally corrupted to their very core” to the extent that “Congress and the American people justifiably have no confidence” in them.
“Based on the above-referenced record, the FBI, the Department of Justice, and the Deep State are much worse than we could ever imagine,” he said.
Garland has claimed, “Upholding the rule of law means applying the law evenly without fear or favor. Under my watch, that is precisely what the Justice Department is doing,” Hutchison noted.
But that’s a lie, he said.
“That is clearly untrue,” he said. “Accordingly, it is time for the American people to take action to ensure that the American republic returns to the rule of law. It is time to engage in a root-and-branch effort to clean up the FBI, the IRS, the Department of Justice, and all layers of government.”
