Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) stopped by Fox News’ Sunday Morning Futures to discuss the dangerous, partisan nature of the FBI and DOJ – especially in light of the recent Mar-a-Lago raid.
“We have seen the FBI become politicized, a certain group, a certain cabal in the FBI,” the Tennessee senator told host Maria Bartiromo, noting that the FBI does have some “wonderful men and women who are working in that agency” and who have retired.
“The work that Senator [Chuck] Grassley is continuing to do is going to be very important to make certain that… the leadership of the FBI is returned to being a nonpolitical agency.”
From Fox News:
In an Aug. 17 letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray, the Iowa Republican demanded an accounting for alleged political bias influencing high-level investigations, particularly out of the FBI’s Washington, D.C., office.
“Starting on May 31, 2022, I’ve written three letters to you regarding political bias that has infected the FBI’s Washington Field Office,” Grassley, R-Iowa, wrote. “Two of those letters provided specific and credible allegations based on numerous whistleblowers that have approached my office with information that one can only conclude is indicative of a deeply rooted political infection that has spread to investigative activity into former President Trump and Hunter Biden.”
Grassley claimed that the FBI approved investigative activity into the Trump campaign with questionable predication while also choosing to “shut down investigative activity and sources, which included verified and verifiable information, relating to Hunter Biden.”
“People really fear this, having two tiers of justice, two separate systems, rules for thee, but not for me, that approach,” Blackburn said on Sunday. “And it is unnerving to Tennesseans.”
“And they’re frustrated with what they see happening from the DOJ and the FBI,” the senator continued.
