31. Am I the only on who thinks it's a bad idea to disrespect the FBI? I mean....

...hasn't Trump done enough damage to the GOP by alienating women, minorities, non-Christians and the handicapped)? Does Paul Ryan and company really want alienate law enforcement? He can say 'with all due respect' all he wants, but that preface of respect never fools anyone. Whenever someone says "With all due respect" all they mean is "I'm going to disrespect you in a way I think is polite..."

He essentially just said that if the FBI doesn't do what Republicans want done, they don't know what they're doing, and really, given how much the FBI has been in republican pockets and looked the other way...that doesn't sound real smart to me. If I were the FBI, I might say, "Well, now the you mention it, we don't want to set a bad precedent. We really should look deeper into the activities of a few GOP politicians, and while we're at it, there are some e-mail scandals we ought to have examined that we never did back in Pres. Bush's time in office...."

I mean, really Paulie, you're supposed to put a damper on the damage Trump is doing not blow on the fire.
