BREAKING: FBI Turns On President Trump… This Means WAR

By

Holdovers from the Obama Administration deeply embedded in the intelligence community are making life difficult for President Trump.

And now the FBI might have just escalated that situation from one of annoyance to all out war.

Over the weekend, Trump alleged that Obama might have ordered the FBI to surveil his residence at Trump Tower during the presidential campaign.

FBI Director James Comey is now demanding that the Department of Justice publicly reject the president’s assertion.

The New York Times reports:

Mr. Comey’s request is a remarkable rebuke of a sitting president, putting the nation’s top law enforcement official in the position of questioning Mr. Trump’s truthfulness…

The White House showed no indication that it would back down from Mr. Trump’s claims. On Sunday, the president demanded a congressional inquiry into whether Mr. Obama had abused the power of federal law enforcement agencies before the 2016 presidential election.

Yes, it is remarkable that the FBI would so openly go to war with a sitting president.

What’s also remarkable is that less than a month ago the FBI informed White House Chief of Staff Rance Priebus that it couldn’t take public positions regarding intelligence scandals, despite knowing that Trump was innocent in charges of collusion with Russia.

So, the FBI is willing to make a public stink to smear Trump, but insists it must remain tight-lipped when it comes to protecting the president?
