FBI Agents Association Hits Back At Trump

1 Share

'As we have said, attacks on our character and demeaning comments about the FBI will not deter Agents from continuing to do what we have always done—dedicate our lives to protecting the American people.'

FBI Agents Association, a group representing thousands of current and former FBI agents, defended the bureau on Saturday, amid criticism from President Trump, The Hill reports.

The group took to Twitter to hit back at Trump, who continues to viciously criticize the FBI, and the Department of Justice.

“As we have said, attacks on our character and demeaning comments about the FBI will not deter Agents from continuing to do what we have always done—dedicate our lives to protecting the American people.”

The organization’s tweet comes a day after President Trump’s fiery rally in Missouri. At the rally, the POTUS criticized the FBI, and the Department of Justice, promising his supporters that he would fix both, and “get rid of the stench.”

“Look what’s being exposed at the Department of Justice and the FBI. You have some real bad ones. You see what’s happening at the FBI — they’re all gone, they’re all gone,” Trump said, “but there’s a lingering stench and we’re going to get rid of that too.”

Trump’s comments don’t come as a surprise, considering the fact that the president has been a vocal critic of some American law enforcement agencies, and of the American national security community as a whole.

In August, as the Inquisitr reported, former CIA Director Michael Hayden described Trump’s relationship with the national security community as “dangerously close to being broken,” criticizing the president for effectively forcing the national security community to abandon its apoliticism.

President Trump has, on multiple occasions, accused the Department of Justice of being biased, criticized the FBI, and called head of the Special Counsel investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections Robert Mueller’s Russia probe a “hoax,” and a “witch hunt.”

Trump’s most recent attack at the FBI follow a controversial New York Times report which alleges that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein – who is currently overseeing Robert Mueller’s Russia probe – suggested invoking the 25th amendment, and discussed secretly recording President Trump.

According to the New York Times, Rosenstein made these suggestions in the spring of 2017, after Trump fired James Comey as FBI director, further straining the already strained relationship between the White House, and the national security community, the FBI in particular.

Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian election interference and possible coordination with the Trump campaign is agitating the president as he grows increasingly frustrated with issues tied to the probe, his own national security community, the Justice Department, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

For the FBI Agents Association, Trump has, evidently, crossed the red line with his most recent comments.

FBI Group Rips Character 'Attacks' After Trump Slams Agency 'Stench'

1 Share

An organization of current and former FBI agents has lashed out at character “attacks” and “demeaning comments” after President Donald Trump complained about a “lingering stench” at the agency.

“Attacks on our character and demeaning comments ... will not deter agents” from continuing to protect the American people, said a Saturday tweet from the FBI Agents Association, a nongovernmental organization that says it represents 14,000 current and former agents.

On Friday. Trump vowed at a rally in Missouri to “get rid of” the “lingering stench” at the Justice Department and the FBI

“Just look at what is now being exposed in our Department of Justice and the FBI. Look at what’s going on. You have some real bad ones. You see what’s happening at the FBI — they’re all gone, they’re all gone, they’re all gone,” he said, an apparent reference to former FBI Director James Comey and other top agency officials.

“But there’s a lingering stench, and we’re going to get rid of that, too,” he added.

In that reference, Trump was apparently referring in part to a New York Times article Friday that, citing unnamed sources, said Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein suggested last year secretly recording Trump. Rosenstein also talked about recruiting Cabinet members to invoke the 25th Amendment to oust Trump as unfit for office, according to the Times. Rosenstein denied the story.

The tweet Saturday by the FBI group linked to an earlier statement on its website it issued late last year after Trump said the FBI’s reputation was in “tatters.”

“The true story of the FBI cannot be reduced to partisan talking points,” the group’s December statement. “Special Agents are focused on the Constitution and protecting the public. Their work should be recognized, not denigrated.”

Association president Tom O’Connor appeared to slap at Trump after the president told The Hill news outlet in an interview published Wednesday that he aimed to expose the “cancer” of the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

O’Connor on the same day called for more attention to federal agents whose health was harmed as the agency responded to the Sept. 11 attacks.

“Let’s talk about real cancer — cancers that have killed 15 FBI heroes who responded to the 9/11 terrorist attacks with more falling sick each year,” he said.
