Anyone still think the FBI is not corrupt?

Retired FBI agent at the forefront of the Trump Russia probe just got arrested for Russian ties.
When will the American public wake up and demand accountability?

The FBI is just as legit, pure and clean as they were back in the day, when J Edgar's bureau was spying on protesters, dissenters, radicals and civil rights figures, even killing, blackmailing, framing them and fomenting violence between their factions?
I'm not sure it is as pure as it was then. I think that it is worse.

It wasn’t a Trump “Probe” it was the FBI creating a faux conspiracy to attempt to discredit Trump in the eyes of American voters.

Calling it a probe or investigation is disingenuous, as Crossfire Hurricane had one goal - the destruction of Trump.

The FBI is as filthy as a one month olds diaper after a bottle. I’m sure the CIA and NSA are comparable.

Call it by the correct name - coup d’etat.

A good read for those inclined, G. Gordon Liddy's autobiography "Will" describes in detail his experiences as an FBI agent in the 1950s and 1960s.

Extensive files on government officials, entertainers, political activists, and journalists kept at FBI headquarters under lock and key, constantly updated by field reports of every rumor or innuendo.

"Black bag jobs", surreptitious searches without warrants targeting anyone J. Edgar decided was a potential enemy (of the nation, or simply of J. Edgar).

Clandestine arrangements between the FBI and organized crime syndicates to provide whatever was needed, anywhere, anytime in exchange for preferential treatment of one kind or another.

Books ghost-written under Hoover's name expounding on the threats of world communism, organized crime, and the omnipotence of the FBI as America's only hope.

"Dirty tricks" campaigns targeting critics of the Bureau or J. Edgar personally.

A shocking "cult of personality" revolving around The Director (as Hoover insisted on being called and addressed).

Agents failing to toe the line and drink the Kool-Aid finding themselves exiled to Resident Agencies on remote Indian reservations.

Family members of political enemies subjected to harassment and humiliation.

Not to mention all of Liddy's personal stories, which are enough to make the hair on the back of your neck stand up.

I had peripheral interaction with FBI, DEA, and Secret Service agents over a 24 year span. At the lowest level agents are hardworking and level headed. Then they get promoted up one level. Entitlement and bureaucratic “processes” loom larger in their job priorities. Those characteristics get amplified with each promotion.

Well, something has to be afoot, because it doesn't make sense to intentionally fabricate evidence of Russian collusion and then publicly charge one of your own with Russian collusion. This guy must be some threat, he knows too much and the DOJ is forcing him stay quiet one way or another. Either that, or there is information that will inevitably be exposed, this guy is involved, and his usefulness to the administrative state has expired. Kind of like the President.

A long culture of corruption. JEH wove it in to the fabric of the agency.
...and the female dresses he enjoyed wearing! 😀

Hold on, if the guy that was responsible for investigating whether or not Trump was compromised by Russia was in the pocket of the Russians doesn't that make anything he found a bit suspect? And if that's the case does that sort of put Trump's purity in question?

Eh nevermind

And that is just the stuff we know about!
