What the former FBI director's second closed-door hearing covered


Ratcliffe called the Baker transcript leak "selective," adding that the full transcript of the Oct. 18 interview, which is undergoing a classification review by the FBI and the Justice Department, reveals "that in May 2017, political bias infected senior FBI leadership, and emotion -- not evidence -- drove their decision making."
"(I)n May 2017,  political bias infected senior FBI leadership, and emotion -- not evidence -- drove their decision making."
— U.S. Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas



This report is only scratching the surface of the institutional corruption and arrogance in the FBI. Wake up America! This is the result of having an domestic intelligence agency with investigative powers and arrest authority, who also happens to conduct the background investigations of all elected and appointed officials, and is responsibible for investigating public corruption. All of that under one roof is just as a much a threat to our democracy as our foreign enemies. They have been influencing politicians and politics since their Hoover led beginning. The FBI must be broken up. Congress needs to decide if they want them to be a law enforcement agency or an intelligence agency, and then hand off many of their responsibilities to other agencies. They are too big and need to stop behaving as if they have some superior moral compass and stop acting as the fourth branch of government.
