Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) said a ‘cabal’ of individuals within the FBI are politicizing the agency on this week’s show of ‘Sunday Morning Futures’.
Blackburn said of the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, “We still don’t know exactly what they’re up to. We know it’s vast and has a wide reach, going for documents anywhere between 2017 and 2021. It wasn’t a targeted raid if you will. What we do know is that the people of Tennessee that I talk to say if they can do this to President Trump, they can do it to me. We know Biden and his team have a habit of doing things out of the ordinary.
She continued: “We have seen the FBI become politicized, a certain group, a certain cabal within the FBI. We have wonderful men and women who work in this agency. We have great people who have retired. We’ve heard from some of the whistleblowers, and the ongoing oversight, the work that Senator Grassley continues to do will be very important in ensuring that the FBI is fired. The FBI leadership becomes an apolitical agency again.
She added: ‘You know people are really afraid of having two levels of justice, two separate systems, rules for you but not for me, that approach. And it’s annoying for people in Tennessee, and we hear about it every day. And how people want justice to be blind, equal, fair. And they’re frustrated with what they see coming from the DOJ and the FBI.
