Ex-FBI agent Mike German, a 16 year veteran of law enforcement, has a new book out and James Comey should be ashamed.
So should Robert Mueller according to German, but he saves his harshest criticism for Comey, the man who single-handedly ruined America’s faith in the FBI.
What took years to build was gone in a minute when Comey interfered in the 2016 election not once, not twice, but three times.
German is not holding back and calls Comey and the rest threats to democracy.
From The Daily Mail:
In Disrupt, Discredit, and Divide: How the New FBI Damages Democracy, German says: ‘The FBI has systemic problems that, left unchecked, make the bureau a threat to the very democracy it is intended to serve’.
In a damning history of the FBI, German claims that Mueller, who later became the Special Counsel in the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, wanted to ‘remake the FBI in his own image’ with no room for dissent.
He threw out the safeguards that were brought in by the Church Committee in 1975 and brought about a ‘new era of abuse’ against citizens.
Mueller’s FBI has silenced whistle-blowers and created many ‘victims of the FBI’ says German, who became an adviser to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) after retiring and has written papers attacking the bureau.
Comey went further and ‘dispensed with the illusion the bureau was impartial and apolitical’ when he made his public comments about the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails in 2016.
German claims that Comey breached a ‘cardinal rule’ of the FBI by commenting on a subject’s uncharged behavior and his comments cast a ‘cloud of illegitimacy’ over Trump’s presidency before he even took office.
The bombshell book by German, which is out on September 10, is released at a time of historic tensions between the FBI and the White House.
President Donald Trump has claimed that he is the victim of an FBI-driven ‘witch hunt’ over the inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
