Or MORE crooked?
Or, is it just the Directors? (You choose)
Hoover’s FBI was (in)famous for being anti-communist, anti-civil rights, and very much ends-justify-the means (black bag jobs, COINTELPRO, illegal files on EVERYONE. Assassination?)
So much so when ‘Open Territory’ occurred (code for Hoover dying), it was reported the secret files were destroyed (yeah, right) and Congress passed legislation limiting the FBI Director’s job to ten years. (Hoover was the FBI Director for 48 years!)
And we went through 10 directors since Hoover’s death, the eleventh (and current) being James Comey.
And post-Hoover we had illegal wiretapping, intelligence gathering, false flag operations, Ruby Ridge, Waco ad infinitum, ad nauseum.
But, according to the TV show (the FBI) and the movie (the FBI Story), the FBI was alleged to be a band of stalwart patriots, fighting communists, anarchists and criminals with equal aplomb.
And now we have Comey, a blue-ribbon candidate who seems to have dropped the ball on prosecuting Secretary of State Clinton.
from Free North Carolina:
Of course the Obama administration was not going to prosecute Hillary Clinton
When considering the recommendation of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James B. Comey against a prosecution of Hillary Clinton over the e-mail scandal, bear two things in mind.
First, for all their pretensions about the insulation of law enforcement from politics, the FBI and the Department of Justice are agents of the executive branch. As a matter of constitutional law, the power they are delegated to exercise is the president’s, and they wield it at his pleasure. The highly ambitious men and women in coveted executive-branch leadership posts always have the option of honorably resigning if they find the president’s bidding too unsavory to do; but if they remain, they do what is expected of them.More @ National Review Page 21
