In a headline that you think would be straight from the satirical news website The Onion, anonymous FBI agents have provided some shocking insights into the general feelings within the bureau regarding Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
The Guardian is reporting that sources within the FBI, both current and former agents, say that there has been an internal struggle since Director James Comey revealed in July there would be no indictment levied against Hillary Clinton, even after admitting that other individuals who committed the same acts would likely be prosecuted.
“The FBI is Trumpland,” said one current agent.
This atmosphere raises major questions about how Comey and the bureau he is slated to run for the next seven years can work with Clinton should she win the White House.
The currently serving FBI agent said Clinton is “the antichrist personified to a large swath of FBI personnel,” and that “the reason why they’re leaking is they’re pro-Trump.”
The agent called the bureau “Trumplandia”, with some colleagues openly discussing voting for a GOP nominee who has garnered unprecedented condemnation from the party’s national security wing and who has pledged to jail Clinton if elected.
The statement calling Hillary Clinton ‘the Antichrist’ is from a current FBI agent, according to The Guardian, which gives first hand observations of the political climate within the organization since the Clinton case was closed. Considering these law enforcement officers are the ones actually performing the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server, her pay-to-play schemes and the Clinton Foundation’s illicit activities, I think it’s safe to say that they have discovered some very damaging evidence against her and her associates. Otherwise, there would not be anywhere near this level of frustration within the bureau.
The report continues, stating that although there are large pro-trump forces within the FBI, not everyone agrees with this stance.
At the same time, other sources dispute the depth of support for Trump within the bureau, though they uniformly stated that Clinton is viewed highly unfavorably.
“There are lots of people who don’t think Trump is qualified, but also believe Clinton is corrupt. What you hear a lot is that it’s a bad choice, between an incompetent and a corrupt politician,” said a former FBI official.
Sources who disputed the depth of Trump’s internal support agreed that the FBI is now in parlous political territory. Justice department officials – another current target of FBI dissatisfaction – have said the bureau disregarded longstanding rules against perceived or actual electoral interference when Comey wrote to Congress to say it was reviewing newly discovered emails relating to Clinton’s personal server.
Considering the unprecedented actions of the FBI in the past week, including announcing the reopening of the Clinton email case and tweeting out previously unreleased documents on the 2001 investigation into allegations of Bill Clinton pardoning known criminal Marc Rich in exchange for donations, I think it’s safe to assume that some very unhappy agents are taking matters into their own hands.
The latest FBI FOIA tweet came just a few days ago, and it involved the William J. Clinton Foundation.

Will it be enough to prevent Hillary Clinton from being elected President of the United States? If the mainstream media would do their job and actually report these bombshells instead of spending their time defending Hillary Clinton, then I would say absolutely. Unfortunately, the media has seemed more concerned with unfounded allegations against Donald Trump from decades ago than actual high level systemic corruption without our government.
We have a chance on November 8th to change the course of history and send a message to every politician that we will not tolerate the corruption of our country in any way, shape or form. It’s up to us, the voters, to make it happen.
