Our coverage of corruption and lawlessness at the FBI has been extensive, literally going back years. In the upcoming days we are going to revisit some of the worst abuses of the FBI.
We must face facts that the FBI has a culture of corruption and election meddling going back to J. Edgar Hoover. This culture took root at the FBI’s founding and has only gotten worse to the point where it is now intolerable.
The FBI has failed repeatedly at stopping school shooters it was actually surveilling at the time, they have failed to protect us from Chinese espionage more times than we can count, they failed to arrest Chinese honey pot spies who were sleeping with Members of Congress, they failed to protect our nuclear secrets at Los Alamos, they failed at 9/11, the FBI was warned about the Boston Marathon bombers and failed, they have failed when it comes to fentanyl and human trafficking. The FBI refuses to track ANTIFA violence. FBI couldn’t stop Epstein, in fact they covered for him, just as they covered for the sexual abuse of our Olympic gymnasts.
Kyle Shideler of the Center for Security Policy explains why Congress must hold fast and declare at the outset, one way or the other, the FBI is finished, with no quarter given. If they don’t the FBI will target steadfast Members of Congress one at a time until resolve to replace the Bureau wanes.
The FBI’s actions over the past six years make perfectly clear that the FBI is more than willing to serve as the enforcement arm of the Democratic Party. It serves as its patron’s shield in matters large and small. It exonerated Hillary Clinton for her illicit server. It raided James O’Keefe and Project Veritas when Joe Biden’s daughter lost her diary. It eliminated investigation into Black Lives Matter and other black identity extremists because those pursuits annoyed the Democrats’ Congressional Black Caucus. It refuses even to utter the word “Antifa” while churches and pregnancy centers are fire-bombed. It continues to cover up for Hunter Biden’s corrupt dealings with enemy nations, along with his indulgence in criminal prostitution and drug abuse.
But the FBI has also served as the Democrats’ sword as well. It knowingly laundered the Russian collusion hoax, lying in order to secure FISA warrants. It ambushed the president’s sitting national security advisor in a nonsense perjury trap. The FBI hunts down January 6 protesters while dodging congressional inquiries about the role of federal agents in provoking the incident. The FBI ginned up a fake kidnapping plot in Michigan to instill fear of right-wing terrorism, manhandled the former president’s lawyer, and shackled one of his former high-level aides.
And it has now raided the former president’s home under a mere pretext, while the Democrats openly crow on cable news about using a political prosecution to prevent Trump from ever again being able to serve in office.
Other attempts to rein in the FBI short of its abolition have failed. The FBI shows nothing but contempt for those authorized to oversee it. It routinely ignores inspector general investigations. It fails to prosecute or punish those who overtly violate established policies. It refuses to answer legitimate questions from Republican committee members. It doesn’t even respond to congressional letters of inquiry. It punishes FBI whistleblowers and seeks to purge from its midst those agents who aren’t in lockstep with its new praetorian guard role.
Shideler explains how to break up the FBI responsibly:
Begin by separating out the FBI’s component parts. The FBI’s crime lab, statistical services, and National Crime Information Center service could be pulled out and left as independent agencies with the sole job of supporting other federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies with their scientific and data capabilities.
Parcel out the FBI’s criminal justice division and its tasks to the various state-level bureaus of investigation. Provide direct federal funding to compensate for the extra workload. Let them primarily make state-level cases, in state court, for the crimes committed within the physical boundaries of their states. It’s not as though kidnapping, bank robbery, drug dealing, or racketeering went unpunished before the FBI came along. White collar, financial, and cybercrimes can be handled by the U.S. Secret Service. Federal crimes whose perpetrators directly cross state lines can be given to the U.S. Marshals Service to track down. Unlike the FBI, the U.S. Marshals are largely scandal-free, and have a long history of cooperating successfully with state and local law enforcement.
For the disgraced national security division, divide up the FBI’s counterterrorism portfolio among the remaining federal law enforcement and homeland security agencies with a role to play, and the various state and regional JTTFs.
