Today’s paragraphs – and they are truly disheartening – come to us from Michael Goodwin, writing for the New York Post. They concern the corruption which so clearly permeates the FBI – and the Department of Justice as well – after 8 years of Chicago politics in the White House and Clinton politics on the presidential stump:
During the financial crisis, the federal government bailed out banks it declared “too big to fail.” Fearing their bankruptcy might trigger economic Armageddon, the feds propped them up with taxpayer cash.
Something similar is happening now at the FBI, with the Washington wagons circling the agency to protect it from charges of corruption. This time, the appropriate tag line is “too big to believe.”
Yet each day brings credible reports suggesting there is a massive scandal involving the top ranks of America’s premier law enforcement agency. The reports, which feature talk among agents of a “secret society” and suddenly missing text messages, point to the existence both of a cabal dedicated to defeating Donald Trump in 2016 and of a plan to let Hillary Clinton skate free in the classified email probe.
If either one is true — and I believe both probably are — it would mean FBI leaders betrayed the nation by abusing their powers in a bid to pick the president.
If either is true – and, like Mr. Goodwin, I can’t help thinking they both are – the saddest part of this is the damage it does to the United States of America, and the permanent damage it will wreak upon the FBI’s formerly impeccable reputation.
But close up in secoind place is the disservice it does to the many, many FBI agents who are dedicated, honest career servants, working to protect this country. They DO NOT DESERVE to be associated with what these lowlife scumbags have turned the organization they’ve dedicated their careers into.
Michael Goodwin wins Paragraphs Of The Day honors for saying out loud what so many of us suspect, and are sickened by.
Let’s find out the truth. Wherever it leads and whomever it takes down. And let’s do it as fast as possible.
