Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Voters suspect the FBI is hiding something and think a special prosecutor is needed to see if the nation's top cops have been playing politics. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 49% of Likely U.S. Voters believe a special prosecutor should be named to investigate whether senior FBI officials handled the investigation of Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump in a legal and unbiased fashion. Thirty-one percent (31%) disagree, but a sizable 19% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Sixty-two percent (62%) of Republicans are calling for an outside prosecutor to investigate the FBI, as is a plurality (49%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party. Among Democrats, 38% favor a special prosecutor; 40% are opposed, but 22% are undecided.

Rasmussen is not a reliable source.

Let there be an investigation of the FBI as long as it includes those agents, most likely from the NY field office (aka Trumpland), who tipped off Giuliani about new evidence coming out regarding Hillary's emails just a few days before Comey announced re-opening the investigation due to Clinton's emails appearing Weiner's laptop. This wouldn't be the first time that Trump and the GOP accuse the other side of what they themselves are guilty of.

"More Americans support impeaching President Donald Trump than oppose it, a new poll shows.

The poll, conducted by Democratic polling company Public Policy Polling, found that 48 per cent supported such a move, while 41 per cent opposed it.

The same poll found Americans were evenly divided on the issue just three months before. "

I hope the republican party starts demanding the release of all prisoners who were prosecuted by the corrupt FBI.

I think they should make disbanding the FBI part of their party platform and start running on it.

Let's investigate this for sure:

Deep antipathy to Hillary Clinton exists within the FBI, multiple bureau sources have told the Guardian, spurring a rapid series of leaks damaging to her campaign just days before the election.

Current and former FBI officials, none of whom were willing or cleared to speak on the record, have described a chaotic internal climate that resulted from outrage over director James Comey's July decision not to recommend an indictment over Clinton's maintenance of a private email server on which classified information transited.

"The FBI is Trumpland," said one current agent.

This atmosphere raises major questions about how Comey and the bureau he is slated to run for the next seven years can work with Clinton should she win the White House.

The currently serving FBI agent said Clinton is "the antichrist personified to a large swath of FBI personnel," and that "the reason why they're leaking is they're pro-Trump."

The agent called the bureau "Trumplandia", with some colleagues openly discussing voting for a GOP nominee who has garnered unprecedented condemnation from the party's national security wing and who has pledged to jail Clinton if elected.


Like I said, it wouldn't be the first time Trump and the GOP projected their own misdeeds onto Obama, Clinton and the Dems.

"Let there be an investigation of the FBI..."

But, who will investigate the investigators of the investigation?
