The FBI Is A Mindless, Unthinking White Male Club

The FBI Wants to Make America Great Again
the extraordinary Wall Street Journal coverage this week that revealed frustrations in the bureau over alleged Justice Department pressure to slow-walk an investigation into the Clinton Foundation. ..... The cherry on this banana-republic split is a tweet published Monday from a long-dormant Twitter account called @FBIRecordsVault. It disclosed that new records of the bureau’s probe into Bill Clinton’s pardon of Marc Rich had been released because of a Freedom of Information Act request. ..... “The Marc Rich tweet is evidence of open warfare between the Justice Department and the FBI.” ...... The move certainly appeared political. After all, former Attorney General Eric Holder was one of the first former officials to criticize Comey’s decision to update Congress on the e-mail investigation. ....... Perhaps the tweet was a shot across the bow to Holder, who recommended the Rich pardon in 2000 as deputy attorney general under President Bill Clinton. ..... many rank-and-file FBI officials are frustrated about the investigation into the Clinton Foundation and the way the e-mail probe was handled ..... As he announced his decision to close the investigation, he also excoriated Clinton, calling her decision to use a private e-mail server for official business reckless and speculating that foreign powers accessed her e-mails (although he said the bureau could not prove that). Comey then promised Congress he would keep them abreast of new developments. He did just that less than two weeks before the election. ....... Through leaks and tweets, people in his bureau appear to be helping Donald Trump -- a man who has called for Clinton to be jailed. Ironic that Trump is the one who keeps saying the election will be rigged.

Yes, it does law enforcement. But the number one thing it does is it protects white male sexism. This naked attempt to influence the election is outrageous. The FBI is guilty of sexism, racism, and classism.

Comey is doing to Hillary what Mitch McConnell has been doing to Barack Obama. The office you hold does not matter, what matters is the color of your skin, and your gender. Otherwise Comey's boss is a black woman, and the guy is in open defiance. This is outrageous.
