Ret. FBI Supervisor Says Dep. Director Gave Him Orders Protecting Hillary

Testimony from Florida Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis revealed that the level of political bias that exists in the FBI is worse than anyone could have imagined.
As reported by The Hill, on Wednesday DeSantis said he interviewed a retired FBI supervisor who told him that Deputy Director Andrew McCabe instructed agents at the bureau to cover for former Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and not to refer to the 2012 Benghazi attack as an act of terrorism.
If you’ll recall, in the days following the attack, the Obama administration attempted to blame the attack on Muslims who were allegedly angry over an anti-Islam video posted to YouTube, and argued that the attack was not a planned act of terror.
DeSantis said the directive from McCabe highlights just how politicized the FBI has become.
“What operational reason would there be to issue an edict to agents telling them, in the face of virtually conclusive evidence to the contrary, not to categorize the Benghazi attack as a result of terrorism? DeSantis asked rhetorically.
“By placing the interests of the Obama administration over the public’s interests, the order is yet another data point highlighting the politicization of the FBI,” he added.
This revelation of leftist bias in the FBI is far from an isolated case.
Just last week, we learned about the demotion of FBI investigator Peter Strzok for texting his mistress anti-Trump messages and changing the language in former FBI Director James Comey’s speech exonerating Clinton and her handling of classified information.
We have also recently learned about a member of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team, top attorney Andrew Weissmann, who also served as the FBI’s General Counsel Under Robert Mueller, praising then-acting Attorney General Sally Yates after she instructed Justice Department lawyers not to enforce President Trump’s travel ban.
The FBI has a political agenda, and that is a far cry from one of the agency’s purposes, which is to protect the American people from criminal activities.
Republican lawmakers said they believed Clinton’s case was tainted and the Democrat presidential candidate received special treatment. The Hill reported that they would express their concerns about the FBI turning into a politically biased organization at a hearing Thursday before the House Judiciary Committee.
“We are here today calling for an investigation into FBI systems and procedures that have allowed special treatment and bias to run rampant,” Rep. Matt Gaetz said.
“The law demands equal treatment for all, not ‘special’ treatment for some. There is a clear and consistent pattern of treating the Clinton investigation differently than other investigations,” he said.
You can say that again.
“Politicized” and “corrupt” should not be words we use to describe the FBI.
