On Friday, The Daily Banter brought you a disturbing story about a rogue faction of the FBI attempting to influence the outcome of the presidential election. According to these sources, the FBI is “Trumpland” and they have used articles from Breitbart News as a basis for some of their investigations into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Although multiple sources spoke out about this disturbing bias within the federal agency, it still seemed pretty unbelievable; that is, until Rudy Giuliani opened his mouth and confirmed it.
During an interview with Fox & Friends, Giuliani admitted that agents leaked information to the Trump Campaign weeks before Director James Comey amended his testimony to Congress. “I did nothing to get it out, I had no role in it,” he said. “Did I hear about it? You’re darn right I heard about it, and I can’t even repeat the language that I heard from the former FBI agents.” He went on to say that he expected Comey to release the big email nothing burger weeks before he actually did:
“I had expected this for the last, honestly, to tell you the truth, I thought it was going to be about three or four weeks ago, because way back in July this started, they kept getting stymied looking for subpoenas, looking for records.”

In light of Giuliani’s comments to Fox News, the top Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, are demanding an investigation into the FBI. In a letter to Inspector General Michael Horowitz, Reps. Elijah E. Cummings and Rep. John Conyers, Jr. blasted the agency for their “intolerable” actions:
“It is absolutely unacceptable for the FBI to leak unsubstantiated — and in some case false — information about one presidential candidate to benefit the other candidate. Leaking this information to former FBI officials as a conduit to the Trump campaign is equally intolerable… These unauthorized and inaccurate leaks from within the FBI, particularly so close to a presidential election, are unprecedented. For this reason, we are calling on your office to conduct a thorough investigation to identify the sources of these and other leaks from the FBI and to recommend appropriate action.”
The FBI is supposed to be an apolitical faction of our government that is only interested in finding the truth. Yet, there is now proof they are attempting to sway the election in favor of a particular candidate. This goes against the core principals of the organization and should infuriate every American.
Donald Trump has been whining for months now that the election is rigged against him,, but this latest bombshell proves what my colleague Chez Pazienza said earlier this week: the election is rigged–against Hillary Clinton.
