‘You wake up one day and we’re in Venezuala’

FOX NEWS: Web of informant contacts with Trump campaign expands, fueling GOP pressure on FBI

President Donald Trump’s latest round of attacks on the FBI has left morale at the Justice Department at a new low, with officials bemoaning what they view as a full-frontal assault on their institution.

“It’s a deliberate campaign to delegitimize institutions where the people who are inside those institutions are professionals and giving up lots of money for the jobs that they’re doing and it’s extremely demoralizing,” said one current federal prosecutor.

“As my father used to say, history goes forward and backward. And things go backward when the trust in bedrock institutions—which are trustworthy, by the way—is diminished for the benefit of a few. It accelerates, and you wake up one day and we’re in Venezuela.”

Trump has been pushing a conspiracy theory that the FBI sicced a spy on his campaign during the election season. In reality, a longtime FBI informant—per numerous reports—spoke with several Trump campaign officials, including Carter Page and George Papadopoulos, and shared the information with FBI investigators. The Daily Caller reported the name of the person believed to be that informant.

  1. Trump ran as Louisiana Governor Huey Long and has morphed into talk show host Mark Levin.

    Venezuela has been embargoed, sanctioned, had its elections interfered with, and repeatedly lied about by the US media simply because it chose to use the Socialist model and not the Capitalist model.

    The FBI and the CIA needed a damn good whacking.
    The conduct of both of these agencies has been illegal and immoral for decades.

  2. Imagine an informant in a federal case that lead to a guilty plea by Trump’s “Foreign Policy Advisor” based on information garnered from an interview in London. Where’s the abuse?
