CNN’s Phil Mudd is making the outrageous claim that the FBI can’t wait to “fight Trump”:
Mudd noted the long-running operation of the FBI versus Trump’s 13 months as president and noted the FBI was vowing “to win.”
“The president is talking about basically corruption at the FBI today, but we oppose the leadership,” he said. “The workforce is going to look at this and say, this is an attack on our ability to conduct an investigation with integrity. There are hundreds of agents and analysts working on this investigation. It’s not just Christopher Wray, the FBI Director.”
“So, the FBI people — I’m going to tell you are ticked, and they’re going to be saying, I guarantee it, you think you could push us off this because you can try to intimidate the director, you’d better think again, Mr. President,” he continued. “You’ve been around for 13 months; we’ve been around since 1908. I know how this game is going to be played, and we’re going to win.”
Assuming Mudd is not just making things up (this is CNN, after all), the FBI needs to be slapped down hard by Trump. The FBI has no right to act as a “Praetorian guard,” deciding to un-elect presidents they dislike. What did the FBI think was going to happen when the declared war on Trump and tried to get him impeached?
The Federal bureaucracy is totally out of control and must be brought firmly to heel.
