FBI Agents Association blasts ‘partisan politics’ after House publishes Nunes memo

Published

on

The FBI Agents Association on Friday slammed the “partisan politics” surrounding the release of Devin Nunes’ controversial memo after the House Intelligence Committee published the document over the objections from leading law enforcement officials and members of Congress.

“The men and women of the FBI put their lives on the line every day in the fight against terrorists and criminals because of their dedication to our country and the Constitution,” the organization’s president Thomas O’Connor said.

“The American people should know that they continue to be well-served by the world’s preeminent law enforcement agency,” he added. “FBI Special Agents have not, and will not, allow partisan politics to distract us from our solemn commitment to our mission.”

Donald Trump on Friday accused “top leadership and investigators of the FBI and the Justice Department” of “[politicizing] the sacred investigative process in favor of Democrats.” He added the “rank and file are great people!”

Trump’s criticism came after FBI Director Christopher Wray—the president’s own pick to lead the bureau—on Thursday said he has “grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy.”

The FBI Agents Association issued a statement in support of Wray, writing, “The FBI Agents Association appreciates FBI Director Chris Wray standing shoulder to shoulder with the men and women of the FBI as we work together to protect our country from criminal and national security threats.”

Here is what she wrote:

I study genocide. It's been a theme in my academic endeavours for nearly 30 years. More accurately, I study the conditions in the lead up to genocide, be they cultural, social, political, economic, etc... 1/n

Year of Rat hails easy ride for Donald Trump — but bumps for Harry and Meghan

Published

on

As the world prepares to welcome the Year of the Rat, feng shui masters predict a lucky year for Donald Trump, but warn Harry and Meghan's futures are less certain as they make a bid for freedom.

Both the US President and the Sussexes have begun 2020 with a bang.

The former is facing down an impeachment trial -- and seeking re-election in November -- while the latter are beginning a new chapter in Canada after consciously uncoupling from the gilded but pressured career of being a working British royal.

But if experts in the field of Chinese horoscopes are to be believed, it is the US president that will have the easier journey this year.

John Roberts caused a ‘crisis of democratic legitimacy’ — it’s ‘entirely fitting’ he has to preside over his mess: columnist

Published

on

Supreme Court Justice John Roberts was blasted in The Washington Post on Thursday for his culpability in creating the dynamics that resulted in President Donald Trump -- and his impeachment.

"There is justice in John Roberts being forced to preside silently over the impeachment trial of President Trump, hour after hour, day after tedious day," Dana Milbank wrote. "Roberts’s captivity is entirely fitting: He is forced to witness, with his own eyes, the mess he and his colleagues on the Supreme Court have made of the U.S. political system. As representatives of all three branches of government attend this unhappy family reunion, the living consequences of the Roberts Court’s decisions, and their corrosive effect on democracy, are plain to see."
