Over the weekend, a former top aide to fired FBI Director James Comey ‘predicted’ that the upcoming and highly anticipated report from Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz would highly condemn the bureau over its (intentional) mishandling of the Hillary Clinton classified email investigation.
“Prediction: The independent IG will slam the FBI for violating policies and procedures in handling the Clinton email investigation. The President will then find a way to make it about him and twist it into an attack on Mueller. Standby,” the former aide — and now former FBI agent — Josh Campbell wrote.
Campbell, who said he quit the bureau after POTUS Trump “politicized” it, sounds an awful lot like the rest of the Left-wing Deep State quislings who are trying to get out in front of IG Michael Horowitz’s report, which is expected to name names and point fingers (including at Campbell’s old boss).
But the broader picture he is attempting to paint — that all criticism of the bureau by Trump and his supporters is unwarranted — has a taint to it, thanks in no small part to the FBI itself. (Related: This central figure in the ‘Spygate’ scandal may have just CLEARED Trump of Russian ‘collusion’)
Take what happened in Denver last weekend, for instance.
As reported by The Denver Channel, an off-duty FBI agent who likely had some liquor on board was goofing off at a local club called the Mile High Spirits and Tasting Room Distillery and actually shot someone by accident:
Video obtained by Denver7 shows the alleged off-duty FBI agent dancing around a group of onlookers before he executes a backflip. As the off-duty FBI agent flips, the gun is seen falling off from the man’s holster onto the floor. The man is then seen jumping quickly to pick up the gun, but as he picks it up, he appears to fire the gun by accident.
Some people in the crowd scatter for safety as others look in disbelief. The man then appears to put the gun in the back of his pants and is seen holding his hands up before walking away from the shot.
Not only did the gun go off, but the bullet actually struck a bar patron in the lower leg, who then had to be taken to a local hospital to be patched up.
The news site said that Denver Police took the agent into custody but later released him to an FBI supervisor. The incident is being investigated as a criminal act and the agent — who most likely faces near-instant termination from the bureau — may wind up facing charges if the Denver District Attorney’s Office deems them necessary.
Now, mind you, there have been no shortage of hack Democrats and anti-gun activists who constantly blow up the blogosphere and Twitterverse with memes and idiotic observations about how ‘irresponsible’ we ‘yahoo gun nuts’ are out here in flyover country.
We’re guessing we’re not going to hear anything from the lamestream Pravda media about this because it was a negative incident involving someone belonging the Left’s new favorite government agency.
And while we’re awfully glad someone wasn’t killed, it’s appropriate to circle back to anti-Trump Deep State apologist Josh Campbell.
His virtue-signaling to CNN (where he is now employed!) aside, his tendency to label any criticism of his former employer as inappropriate and only ‘political,’ will play to the sheep who bleat at his network and others like MSNBC and the networks.
But as the incident in Denver proves, when you do something that warrants criticism (and perhaps even criminal charges), and you are part of an American law enforcement institution, you ought to not only be called out for said behavior but also held accountable for it.
Deep down, that’s all Trump and his supporters are trying to say when they criticize what happened during the 2016 campaign to Team Trump: What some in the bureau and DoJ did was wrong, and people need to be held to account.
