Donald Trump is now so desperate and panicked about his Russia scandal, he’s trying to destroy the FBI before it can finish exposing his crimes. He’s publicly threatening the pension of the FBI Deputy Director. He’s punishing an FBI lawyer who can testify that he committed obstruction of justice. Now there’s a whole lot of focus on a tweet posted by Trump’s White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, which she would surely like to have back.
Back on November 3rd of 2016, the FBI botched the election by leading the public to falsely believe Hillary Clinton was newly under investigation for her emails when in fact it was an investigation into Anthony Weiner that had nothing to do with her. Clinton’s allies correctly called out the FBI for its improper election meddling. Sarah Huckabee Sanders arrogantly tweeted this in response: “When you’re attacking FBI agents because you’re under criminal investigation, you’re losing.” Little did she know that more than a year later the FBI would be close to taking down her boss Donald Trump for the most serious crimes that anyone has ever committed against the United States.
Suffice it to say that Trump’s detractors have been having some fun with the old tweet posted by Huckabee Sanders. It’s now been retweeted more than thirty-five thousand times, with most of that having come recently, as Donald Trump has increasingly begun trying to sabotage the FBI from within. Yesterday Trump tweeted this lying garbage: “How can FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, the man in charge, along with leakin’ James Comey, of the Phony Hillary Clinton investigation (including her 33,000 illegally deleted emails) be given $700,000 for wife’s campaign by Clinton Puppets during investigation?” Then he insinuated that McCabe could lose his pension if he doesn’t bow to Trump’s will.
Donald Trump is committing additional felonies with each of these tweets, and it’s a matter of time before he ends up being ousted from office so he can rot in prison. Or, to put it another way: “When you’re attacking FBI agents because you’re under criminal investigation, you’re losing.”
