Well, this is not good news:
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.
