Over the last several years, Americans have watched as the FBI has been taken over by the left, and seemed to become a law enforcement arm of the Democrat party.
Americans have watched as the FBI carried out pre-dawn raids on the homes of Roger Stone, James O’Keefe and other conservatives, but never people on the left.
Conservative scholar and historian Victor Davis Hanson wonders if the FBI can be saved.
He writes at American Greatness:
Can the FBI Be Salvaged?
The Washington, D.C.-based Federal Bureau of Investigation has lost all credibility as a disinterested investigatory agency. Now we learn from a whistleblower that the agency was allegedly investigating moms and dads worried about the teaching of critical race theory in their kids’ schools.
In truth, since 2015, the FBI has been constantly in the news—and mostly in a negative and constitutionally disturbing light.
The fired former Director James Comey injected himself into the 2016 political race by constantly editorializing on his ongoing investigation of candidate Hillary Clinton’s email leaks. In a bizarre twist, the public learned later that Comey had allowed Hillary Clinton’s own private computer contractor, CrowdStrike, to run the investigation of the hack. The private firm was allowed to keep possession of pertinent hard drives central to the investigation. How odd that CrowdStrike’s point man was Shawn Henry, a former high-ranking FBI employee.
During the Robert Mueller special investigation, the FBI implausibly claimed it had no idea how requested information on FBI cell phones had mysteriously disappeared.
You should read the whole thing.
The FBI is a federal agency, it’s supposed to work for the whole country, not a single ideology or party.
If it can’t be salvaged, maybe it will need to be liquidated so America can start over with a new agency.
