Wow. These old white guys

These old white guys keep thinking they're playing "gotcha!" but just can't quite "get" Strzok. They have no clue how idiotic they appear, but it seems pretty obvious to observers they aren't clever at all and only seem desperate. Nothing like a bunch of politically biased old men "investigating" someone accused of being politically biased in his investigation. Pathetic. Fucking losers. Sad.

I'm pretty proud of the Dems though.

38. There is a fundraiser this weekend for Tammy Baldwin with Kirsten Gillebrand.

I used to go to Tammy's fundraisers, but since she and Kirsten threw Al Franken under the bus I'm taking a pass. He supported her, and she didn't hesitate to give back his "dirty" money.

2. I really wonder what the FBI agents and CIA agents think when they see this--

Their colleagues and bosses not just criticized, but demonized as traitorous-- and even fired (right before pension!).

And by unfit lickspittles who have no real motive beyond protecting Trump from the consequences of his conspiracy.

Does the rank-and-file FBI guy look at this display and think, heck yeah! We should all be hauled before Congress and grilled for a day about some minor thing after we have risked our lives for decades.

6. They had a former FBI specialist (I forget his name)

on MSNBC today and they asked him that question. He said there are soooo many different cases and assignments that thousands of agents are working on that don't have the time or energy to care about such silly and ridiculous allegations made at the expense of their agency. They are busy doing their jobs as professionals. He also said that the FBI recovered fairly quickly from similar attacks to their credibility in the 70s when Hoover's dirty, personal attacks on civilians was made public

20. My question, since the vast majority of FBI agents are Republicans, is

will they still vote for these traitors?

32. Could you give some reputable sources for this statement?

I have some good friends that have been fairly high up in various branches of the US gov't in the roles of security/law enforcement, etc. Most are just conscientious employees who believe in the rule of law and are above the political influences of this or the next or prior administrations.

How a person (gov't employee or otherwise) votes is not known or recorded and shouldn't be. Your assumption of guilt is strange.

35. First example would be today's hearing where it was mentioned several times.

There was one exchange about the N.Y. FBI office was staffed largely with rabid Republicans and no one disagreed.

I have done pro bono work for LE for years. I was the only open Democrat at their convention every year. I would have 3-4 officers privately admit they voted for Democrats but could not admit it publicly for fear of their job and co-worker relations.

I am sure if you checked me on this issue you would find a consensus that law enforcement, including the FBI, are largely Republicans.

Anyone else question my assertion that the FBI is largely Republican?

7. Some of them aren't "old" but they are definitely white men.

I was listening to the TV and every time I looked at the screen to see which GOP rep was being an incredible ass it 100% turned out to be a white man...NO WOMEN OR MINORITIES! That shows you who their base is...subservient women and racist, misogynistic men

Handel is just now speaking. Up until now zero women - zero minorities. Maybe I should have avoided the word "old" but oh well.

also refers to the GOP as "angry, old white men" so if he can say it, so can you! He also calls them "greedy hypocrites" which definately is 100% true!

37. When will yoou stop with the racist "old white guys?" Plenty of us Dems are old white guys.

Because they are white you think it isn't racism. It is. Sure the DU group think rules say you can't be racist toward white people because of privilege and power but that is DU talking not reality.


I'm ready for the group think folks to respond.

A righteous god would have struck that foul mouthed moron with a lightning bolt today. Maybe god held back because she didn't want to create collateral damage?

25. The Republican Party has gotten whiter and more male in the last few years.

Remember when McConnell had his "health care committee" to work on "reforming" health care...and they were 13 white men, more than half older men. Not one woman or minority.

30. Irony

Before the election the Benghazi investigation that Went on forever.
like 3 years I think,
trying to Lay blame on Hillary. And Couldn't find anything.
then because of that, they move the same Investigation into emails. to get dirt on her.
and keep it in the news to move peoples opinions of her.
wasted alot of Taxpayers money to help Republicans get elected.
so... That was A witch hunt that they used for political means.
It was free to Trump Campaign endorsements that, we The tax payers paid for.
I'm really sure that was Biased.
