    Does that mean he'd like to see the current director fired?

    In other words the dems expect Trump to either be impeached or in some other way expect a dem to get elected in 2020 and want to prevent the other side from using their own tactics on them.

    The left has captured the F.B.I. and they are not going to give it up.

    My prediction, Republican strategists will be their new big target in the coming years.

    The Dems already got away with using the IRS as a political tool against their enemies. Just more of the same.

    Have you noticed there are now 3 FBI related series on TV? Somebody is trying to repair their image. Not once in the series does an agent outright lie to the FISA Court.

    The FBI will never regain the stature it had when Efrem Zimbalist Jr ran the operation.

    If it came to a vote, I would vote to close the organization down - completely. They have lost any shred of integrity they may have had.

    They need to decide if they are spies or cops. You can't be both.

    One thing they can do is throw manpower at an investigation. They can follow a thousand leads concurrently. They excel at tracking down minutiae.

    That they have decided to become politically involved has destroyed the public trust. I am not certain that 3 TV shows will be enough to restore it. Certainly not in my mind.

    What are the 3 TV shows?

    I don't watch much TV.

    The easy 3:

    FBI
    FBI - Most Wanted
    Quantico

    I think there is yet another series starting in the next month or so.

    They put FBI - Most Wanted on right after FBI to give it a boost. It's ok... We don't watch Quantico for some reason (I forget why).

    FBI is pretty good, FBI - Most Wanted is just starting up so there isn't much history with the characters.
