I can see them not wanting to speak with the  FBI - smart criminals know to have their lawyers present when speaking to the Feds.

"I'm telling you, if an FBI agent came up and asked to talk to me, there's no way in the world I would talk to them without a lawyer present. I don't care what they wanted to know," Rep. Chris Stewart of Utah

YOU MAKE THE LAW, chuckle fark.  Do something about it, you useless whinging insurrectionist dirt bag.

Chris Stewart seems like he's got something to hide and no friends.

Don't worry y'all, Biden and Garland are on it.  Oh, no.  Wait.  This here says they don't want to touch Republican abuses with a ten foot pole.

That's actually sound advice for anyone.  Don't talk to LEO without a lawyer present.  You may think you have nothing to hide but that doesn't mean that they can't find something.

The best way to not get investigated by the FBI/CIA/DHS is to not be insurrectionists and traitors.

So, of course, we know that Trumpublicans will double down and commit ALL the crimes while whining about being targeted.

Everyone. Literally everyone should watch this. And then watch it again (cause the guy talks fast).

I don't like to go anywhere or talk to anyone with out my "emotional support agent".

True story.
 
2021-04-23 1:52:11 PM  
I wouldnt talk either. It's their job to prove a crime took place. I have nothing to gain by saying one word. Prove it in court.

Telling them to get bent and taking the 5th is the best, most logical decision even if the crime has nothing to do with you.

"The Trump presidency changed that. Under FBI investigation for much of his presidency, Trump referred to FBI agents as "scum" who "destroyed the lives of people" and branded as "rats" people who cooperated with law enforcement"

This is the way criminals view LEOs

"...they also express concern that the intelligence community's involvement in President Joe Biden's approach to fighting domestic extremism equates to targeting conservatives"

People who have not engaged insurrection, sedition and treason have nothing to worry about.

Bank robbers rob banks because that's where the money is -- conservatives are being investigated by the FBI because that's where the domestic terrorism is coming from.

Charles Manson was a police informant, and on probation at the time of the murders.

"I'm telling you, if an FBI agent came up and asked to talk to me, there's no way in the world I would talk to them without a lawyer present. I don't care what they wanted to know," Rep. Chris Stewart of Utah told FBI Director Christopher Wray, a lifelong Republican appointed by Trump.

That's fine. In my experience, the Feebs aren't in the habit of asking many questions to which they don't already know the answer.
 
2021-04-23 2:02:34 PM  
It is about time the ethically challenged started to feel targeted. White collar criminals have gotten away with so much, for so long, that they now feel persecuted because someone else noticed their crimes.

Well, that and they would rather be able to use the intelligence community against anyone who doesn't think or act like them.  Even as they accuse the Democrats of doing exactly that.

Every accusation is a confession, indeed.

Seriously, this needs to be the response. "We investigate all leads on domestic terrorism. If those leads overwhelmingly target right-wing people and organizations, that says more about those organizations' aims than it does ours."

Rubio's counterpart in the House, Devin Nunes of California, began the hearing a day later by telling intelligence agency leaders, including Wray, CIA Director William Burns and National Intelligence Director Avril Haines, "I hope you plan on spending a reasonable amount of time in upcoming years on activities other than investigating conservatives and spying on Republican presidential campaigns."

The FBI along with the CIA and the NSA and DHS and the DNI need to make a joint statement that the once venerable GOP has been compromised by foreign actors and should now be considered Enemy Assets.

Somehow today's GOP thinks they can still blow smoke and cover up how deeply corrupt they are.
They are Enemies of the State. Just Google the RAGA to see what a bunch of duplicitous traitors they are.
 
2021-04-23 3:02:58 PM  
Maybe the FBI needs to start arresting the freaking traitors. At least those that supported the insurrection.At that point they'll not only talk, they'll squeal to get themselves out of trouble.

Be kind of fun to see who ends up being the scapegoat.

It's like when conservatives complain that banning people online for racism and other abusive behavior is "targeting conservative views". Do conservatives even realize they're just straight-up admitting that they're assholes.

So the police called an eyewitness who claimed the murderer was this guy, & asked the jury why the killer would lie & say he was in Florida when he was in New York killing someone.

How many deep red intelligence and law enforcement officers (thinking the FBI agents who stirred up the Anthony Weiner email crap in 2016) are still completely onboard for the wholesale dismemberment of their jobs and their work?

What's more despicable about this outside of the fact that he went to jail for a long time for a crime he didn't commit, his lawsuit was just tossed last year.

Why?  Because his conviction was overturned and then they decided not to retry him.  Since he was no longer in prison and his original conviction was wiped out, he has no "grounds" to sue for "unjust conviction" since, on a technicality, he was never convicted despite spending almost 20 years in jail.
 
2021-04-23 7:07:24 PM  
Hmmm. Don't coordinate with hostile foreign powers...don't spread disinformation..... don't try to overthrow an election with violent insurrection....

That should keep the intelligence agencies from being interested in what you're up to.
