El Presidente Trumpo is making sure to his this story as much as possible today.
Report: “ANTI-TRUMP FBI AGENT LED CLINTON EMAIL PROBE” Now it all starts to make sense!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 3, 2017
It looks like he’s making a case that the FBI is unredeemable because of the bias of its agents. This is based on one agent that was removed by Mueller over his anti-Trump texts.
Tainted (no, very dishonest?) FBI “agent’s role in Clinton probe under review.” Led Clinton Email probe. @foxandfriends Clinton money going to wife of another FBI agent in charge.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 3, 2017
After years of Comey, with the phony and dishonest Clinton investigation (and more), running the FBI, its reputation is in Tatters - worst in History! But fear not, we will bring it back to greatness.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 3, 2017
He retweeted this:
BREAKING: top FBI investigator for Mueller--PETER STRZOK--busted sending political text messages bashing Trump & praising Hillary during the 2016 campaign. STRZOK actually LED the Hillary email probe & recommended clearing her; then was tapped to SUPERVISE the Trump Russia probe!— Paul Sperry (@paulsperry_) December 2, 2017
Wray needs to clean house. Now we know the politicization even worse than McCabe's ties to McAuliffe/Clinton. It also infected his top investigator PETER STRZOK, who sent texts bashing Trump & praising Hillary during campaign. Strzok led Hillary probe & supervised Trump probe! https://t.co/0y403oeqvX— Paul Sperry (@paulsperry_) December 2, 2017
Which posted this tweet:
Maybe now the media will pay attention to the scandal, uncovered by @JudicialWatch, engulfing Andrew McCabe, the #2 official at the @FBI? @RealDonaldTrump needs to clean house at FBI/DOJ. https://t.co/BCEaX1mFQ8

Here’s the substance of the Judicial Watch article:
Judicial Watch today released 79 pages of Justice Department documents concerning ethics issues related to FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s involvement with his wife’s political campaign. The documents include an email showing Mrs. McCabe was recruited for a Virginia state senate race in February 2015 by then-Virginia Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam’s office.
“These new documents show that the FBI leadership was politicized and compromised in its handling of the Clinton email investigation,” said Tom Fitton, Judicial Watch President. “It well past time for a do-over on the Clinton emails that requires a new, honest criminal investigation of her misconduct.”
Here’s a Fox News report on it:

If the left is right and Trump is such a Hitler, why is he so toothless to reign in the FBI if he really really actually thinks that they’re biased against him?
On the other hand, why is he whining so bad about the FBI when he literally is supposed to be the alpha male “you’re fired” strongman that his followers keep saying he is? He picked Wray, he cannot whine that the FBI leadership is an Obama holdover. So what’s the deal?
The simple answer is that Trump doesn’t actually think this, he just wants to keep the base riled up. I could be wrong.
