The FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago stunned millions of Americans.
It was another example of the FBI targeting Donald Trump.
And the FBI called Trump supporters one name that had all hell breaking loose.
Elected officials, grassroots activists and pundits across the conservative movement believed the raid was another example of the FBI carrying out another anti-Trump vendetta.
In 2016 the FBI obtained a FISA warrant to spy on former Trump campaign aide Carter Page.
One FBI lawyer pleaded guilty to doctoring an email in pursuit of the warrant.
The FBI also used the fake news Christopher Steele dossier as the central piece of evidence to secure the warrant even though the Bureau knew the dossier was unverified.
FBI Director Christopher Wray lashed out at critics of the FBI raiding Trump’s home calling them “deplorable and dangerous.”
“I’m always concerned about threats to law enforcement,” Wray continued. “Violence against law enforcement is not the answer, no matter who you’re upset with.”
Wray’s use of the word deplorable called back to one of the biggest gaffes of the 2016 presidential campaign.
At a fundraising event Clinton claimed half of all Trump supporters belong in the “basket of deplorables” and were “irredeemable.”
“You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right?” Clinton said at the time. “The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic—you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.”
That gaffe helped cost Clinton the 2016 election.
Likewise, Wray attacking FBI critics as “deplorable” does nothing to restore the FBI’s tattered credibility.
The FBI used to be an institution all Americans trusted.
But the FBI’s crusade to bring down Trump – beginning with the Russian collusion sham in 2016 – continued for years.
FBI officials like James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, and Lisa Page all demonstrated anti-Trump animus.
Page and Strzok even went so far as to describe the Russia probe as an “insurance policy.”
The FBI showing up at Donald Trump’s house 92 days before the midterm election with guns drawn set off alarm bells that the FBI leadership was engaged in another political scam to meddle in an election on behalf of the Democrat Party.
Director Wray refuses to address the criticisms of the FBI having two standards of justice.
While the FBI raided Donald Trump’s house, Hunter Biden boarded Air Force One to go on vacation with Joe Biden.
Director Wray was furious about anyone protesting the FBI.
But Wray bent over backwards to ignore left-wing mobs breaking federal law by protesting outside the homes of Supreme Court justices.
If Director Wray wants the critics of the FBI to back off Wray needs to address these horrible double standards and anti-Trump bias.
