Well, this is not good news:

Chilling Memo To FBI Official Warned Of Sympathy In Bureau For Jan. 6 Rioters

A recently released email written by someone familiar with FBI operations warned a bureau official just days after last year’s insurrection of sympathy within the FBI for the Jan. 6 rioters.

The memo sent via email to now FBI Deputy Director Paul Abbate — first revealed by NBC News — is the latest ominous sign of increasing politicization of policing organizations that are supposed to enforce the law without partisan bias.

“There’s no good way to say it, so I’ll just be direct: from my first-hand and second-hand information from conversations since Jan. 6, there is, at best, a sizable percentage of the employee population that felt sympathetic to the group that stormed the Capitol,” the email reads.

The sender’s name has been redacted, which was part of a trove of documents released this week by the FBI in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.

Much of the US Secret Service —destroyer of cell phones, obstructors of Justice— have already been shown to be compromised, too. I do not know this for a fact, but I’ve read that the SS recruits from the armed forces, and there’s a conveyor belt story there, I’m sure.

It’s past time to investigate and clean house. Add the FBI to the list, but the whole security apparatus seems compromised at this point.

    Too much secrecy. Again. They need to be held out in the light and fire all the trash. It’s never going to happen obviously since the rot goes all the way up to the heads that might do the firing. Yes, we need to clean house even if we only get a few of the most blatant. It’s bad enough that an ex-president seems to be prosecution free, but we can fry some smaller fish at least.
    “Off with their heads”, but seriously, yes.

  3. Puleeze…the FBI was on his side in 2016. The NYC office hated the Clintons with a white hot fury. I am convinced the reason Comey tanked the election with his “moar emails!!!” shit was because they threatened to leak it themselves, undermining his authority. The right wing has been authoritarian leaning for decades…this ain’t a Trump thing…never was.

    No one even takes the infestation of bigots in police forces seriously enough to dump them. Kill a minority? Paid vacation time! AKA administrative leave with pay. Investigation? Sure, our internal investigators will be happy to find a way to excuse that behavior.

    Um, all of our FBI Directors so far have been registered republicans, also too.
