FBI Reputation Shattered By Bad Leadership

Trump Raid was the last straw.

The FBI no longer has the trust of the American people.

FNC: “A bulletin from the Department of Homeland Security and Federal Bureau of Investigation was sent to law enforcement agencies warning of increased threats following the FBI’s execution of the search warrant at former President Trump’s Florida estate.

In the days since the warrant was executed, the FBI and DHS have seen an increase in “violent threats” against law enforcement, judiciary and government personnel, including a particular threat to “place a so-called Dirty Bomb in front of FBI headquarters,” according to the bulletin.”

“General calls” for “civil war” and “armed rebellion” have also increased in recent days on social media.

Who Is A Bigger Threat To America?

Several of the threats are specific, according to the bulletin, which states that “the FBI and DHS have identified multiple articulated threats and calls for the targeted killing of judicial law enforcement and government officials associated with the Palm Beach search, including the Federal judge who approved the Palm Beach search warrant.”

Trump stated that the documents taken by Federal agents were “all declassified.”

“Number one, it was all declassified. Number two, they didn’t need to ‘seize’ anything. They could have had it anytime they wanted without playing politics and breaking into Mar-a-Lago. It was in secured storage, with an additional lock put on as per their request…” Trump said. “They could have had it anytime they wanted—and that includes LONG ago. ALL THEY HAD TO DO WAS ASK. The bigger problem is, what are they going to do with the 33 million pages of documents, many of which are classified, that President Obama took to Chicago?”

As Sean Hannity put it, “Tensions remain very high only one week after the FBI’s raid on the 45th president’s home, Mar-a-Lago. Now, this unprecedented search and seizure has further eroded, sadly, many American’s trust in the FBI and the DOJ and is now causing the outrage all across the country. Make no mistake, the FBI has earned their shattered reputation.”

The fbi’s reputation is so shattered it will take a few generations for it to return, if it ever does.
