Two years after the end of the most corrupt presidential administration in modern history, Americans continue to learn just how unscrupulous and dysfunctional many of our governing institutions became during the reign of Barack Obama.
That is especially true about the FBI â€” and no, there is no need to include the customary disclaimer here that â€˜all agents arenâ€™t corrupt.â€™
Everybody knows that, but it doesnâ€™t take away from the fact that the Joes and Janes who are actuallyÂ runningÂ the bureau are neck deep in the D.C.Â Deep State.Â
We know, for instance, that formerÂ FBI Director James ComeyÂ was corrupt after he excused Hillary Clintonâ€™sÂ serial violations of national security statutesÂ via her gross mishandling of classified emails.
We know that FBI Deputy Director Rod Rosenstein is corrupt because he appointed Robert Mueller special counsel on the basis of a phony â€œTrump campaign-Russian collusionâ€ narrative.
And now Terry Turchie, a former deputy assistant director at the bureau, says we can likely expect more corruption down the road thanks to a changing electorate that is becoming shockingly comfortable with corrupt and morally bankrupt political ideologies.
In comments toÂ Fox Newsâ€™ Tucker Carlson this week regarding the never-ending Russia investigation (compliments of Rosenstein and Mueller), Turchie said this regarding what has become of his former employer:
And I think we can expect more of this, because quite honestly the electorate in some places is putting more and more progressives and self-described socialists in positions.
And ironically, years ago, when I first got into the FBI, one of the missions of the FBI in its counterintelligence efforts was to try and keep these people out of government. Why? Because we would end up with massive dysfunction and massive disinformation and massive misinformation, and it seems to me thatâ€™s where weâ€™re at today.
What makes Turchieâ€™s comment about when he first joined the bureau poignant â€” in July 1972, according toÂ his LinkedIn profileÂ â€” is that what the FBI has done in the age of Trump differs little from what it was doing in the age of J. Edgar Hoover and the Kennedy, LBJ, and Nixon administrations, another period in our history influenced by the rising Leftism.
In those days, the FBI was active in undermining perceived socialists and communists of the time, including civil rights icon Martin Luther King, Jr., asÂ noted by Caitlin Johnstone writing atÂ Medium.Â And while King was no communist seeking to undermine out government, there were plenty of other shady characters in the day who were — people like Bill Ayers, founder and leader of theÂ Weather Underground, a radical Left-wing domestic terrorist group the conducted a bombing campaign targeted government buildings, along with several banks.
Youngsters from that era, as we saw during the Obama years, remained radical and became our leaders.
Is any wonder, then, thatÂ Turchie’s worst fears came to fruition?Â — J. D. Heyes
