Yesterday, the last standing beacon of right-mindedness, FBI Director Christopher Wray, stood up and defended the Bureau and its integrity. That brought the wrath of Donald Trump down upon his head. POTUS tweeted his anger all over the dedicated leader.
Wray managed to avoid the spotlight, only occasionally coming out to defend the law. Trump dug out what the Inspector General’s (IG) new report criticized, a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court failure to correctly issue permission for a wiretap, and attacked.
There was no excuse to go after the inspector general other than to undermine the justice system. Instead, the president and all of his men and the GOP have been spouting Russian propaganda. Senator Angus King (I-ME) said he had gone through 25 hearings on the Senate Intelligence Committee and never heard the word “Ukraine” mentioned once.
Trump must be very upset about his impeachment, because his rage-infused tweets were studded with mistakes. He tweeted “the FBI up and fown the chain of command.” Talk about misdirection:
‘You have to look at the 17 instances of misconduct cited in the Report, they are very bad. The FISA Court was clearly taken for a ride on this, a failure of the FBI up and fown (sic) the chain of command. It’s about as strong a medicine as I’ve seen in a report of this kind…’
Then, the president said the FBI “has had some dark day (sic):”
‘….in a very long time. The FBI has had some dark day (sic) in its past, but nothing like this. This was VERY SERIOUS MISCONDUCT ON THE PART OF THE FBI.” @brithume @BretBaier Are you listening Comey, McCabe, lovers Lisa & Peter, the beautiful Ohr family, Brennan, Clapper & many more?’
After that, he tweeted the FBI was “badly broken” aka disagreed with him:
‘I don’t know what report current Director of the FBI Christopher Wray was reading, but it sure wasn’t the one given to me. With that kind of attitude, he will never be able to fix the FBI, which is badly broken despite having some of the greatest men & women working there!’
What the president has been doing was his best effort at weakening America system of laws:
‘“I can’t remember anything quite like this (the I.G. Report).”’
The IG report was two years of investigation and 400 pages that disproved Trump’s basic premise that the “dark state” was after him:
‘To Impeach a President who has proven through results, including producing perhaps the strongest economy in our country’s history, to have one of the most successful presidencies ever, and most importantly, who has done NOTHING wrong, is sheer Political Madness!’
Twitter world lit up. Take a look at some of these very interesting responses below:
