The issue isn’t a couple of Trump unhealthy apples nonetheless hanging across the high of the DOJ. The problem that the DOJ has been systemically corrupted, and the corruption goes down so far as the boots on the bottom FBI.
There isn’t a acceptable excuse for anybody within the Bureau collaborating in these actions. Trump had launched so many assaults towards the FBI that they had been clearly afraid of him, however there’s a large leap from worry to actively instigating surveillance of a president’s political opponents.
Sen. Whitehouse is right. The FBI must be questioned on this. An inside DOJ investigation is the minimal first step. A full-blown congressional probe into what was occurring in all areas of the DOJ in the course of the Trump administration is a necessity.
