It’s easy to make the mistake of assuming that our intelligence agencies are monolithic when we see them betray the populace. The original decision not to recommend that Hillary be indicted, the NSA spying on everyone and their mother, the CIA shit-shows that are sprinkled throughout the last several decades, etc etc etc. However, in all of these agencies, there are a large number of patriots. People that put the good of the country and the Constitution above all else. It looks like some of these patriots forced Comey’s hand.
I can’t elaborate much beyond this but suffice it to say, the phenomenon that is Donald Trump doesn’t exist without these “white hats” within the intelligence agencies. Jonathan Sowden doesn’t get his message out and escape capture (and most likely death) without those white hats. There are a lot of good people within these agencies. They may not be in charge, but they can effect change for the good.
One last item. A number of Democrat politicians and talking heads are comparing FBI Director Comey to the devil right now for announcing the re-opening of the investigation into Hillary Clinton. So to those of you reading this who are Hillary supporters I say: you need to take off the blinders. These agents within the FBI aren’t resigning and ending their careers on their own accord because they’re card-carrying Republicans. They’ve been resigning because in the world of classified information, what Hillary did would result in literally anyone else being locked up (or worse) for the majority of their life. This is a fact, not an opinion. She did a very, very bad thing in the world of secret information and she did it knowingly. This “bad thing” is just one more “bad thing” in a decades long string of “bad things”. She’s a bad person. There’s a difference between Hillary being a bad person and your ideals being “bad”.
