The FBI has become a firm deep state institution.
Their entire goal now is to oppose President Trump.
But that’s all about to end after dozens of FBI agents go into hiding because of one question Trump just asked.
Since the election of President Donald Trump, he has demanded transparency from the FBI. Their handling of Hillary Clinton’s email scandal led towards intense mistrust for the agency that Trump is hoping to fix.
So once in office, Trump allies in Congress requested thousands of documents related to Hillary Clinton’s email investigation, the FBI’s use of informants to gain intelligence over Trump’s campaign, and about what went into the FBI’s court application to gain a FISA warrant to spy on Trump campaign associate Carter Page.
Congress has given the Justice Department sufficient time to turn in the documents, and they have turned over thousands of documents that were requested. But Trump has become extremely frustrated because a large number of extremely relevant documents have still not been turned in.
So President Trump took to Twitter to question the FBI with a direct and brutal question.
I have tried to stay uninvolved with the Department of Justice and FBI (although I do not legally have to), because of the now totally discredited and very expensive Witch Hunt currently going on. But you do have to ask why the DOJ & FBI aren’t giving over requested documents?

This one question gets straight to the point and points out the fact that Trump so far has stayed out of the push for these documents, leaving it up to his allies in Congress.
Perhaps the strongest ally of President Trump on uncovering important documents is House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, and along with Trump’s tweet, Nunes gave a clear demand. He dropped a Monday evening deadline on the Justice Department to turn over the rest of the documents.
Nunes made his demand in a letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, but it is unclear if the documents will be turned over in a quick fashion. The FBI clearly has something they don’t want to be released.
President Trump and his allies have been highly critical of the FBI and the rest of the Justice Department. Under the leadership of former President Barack Obama, they found themselves in constant scandal. They lost the trust of the American people, and gaining these documents and exposing the problem is the first step to regaining the trust of the people.
The Justice Department is supposed to work for the people, not to protect political elites. But to everyday Americans, that hasn’t been the case. The Justice Department for many years has been the defensive wing of the political establishment.
When Hillary Clinton was caught up in an email scandal, where she was accused of sending and receiving classified information from a private email server, she could count on her buddies at the FBI to give her a slap on the wrist. It doesn’t matter that her alleged activities put national security at risk; Hillary is a political elite who deserves protection in the eyes of some FBI officials.
But President Donald Trump is the anti-establishment. When he ran for President, he ran on a populist platform railing against establishment political institutions and dynasties. And now that he’s in office, he’s hitting them where it hurts.
Do you think President Trump is doing what he was elected to do?
