FBI, DOJ leaders motives should be questioned over search

I have totally lost respect for the top dogs in the FBI, Department of Justice and Attorney General Merrick Garland. They have become the all-wise, all-knowing wizards of Oz hiding behind the curtain. The spectacle they created in Florida is ridiculous. Along with judge who approved the warrant. They have demonstrated that “justice is blind” is not in their vocabulary, as it should be in their sworn oath. They are focused on Trump as if he were a black hole sucking in their wrath.

They are targeting the right with their left-leaning politics. The FBI fell for the Russian collusion hoax, Hilary’s E-mail fiasco and Hunter Biden’s laptop. Where were these so called unbiased civil servants for those impropriates? They need to reveal what was in the affidavit they filed without redacting every other line. What was the reasoning behind all of this?

I appreciate the majority of the frontline FBI and DOJ workers. I believe they want to do the right thing. However the ones at the top are not providing good leadership. Beware your civil liberties are slowly drifting away. Go in with your eyes wide open and think if you are satisfied with the status quo.
