For John, BLUF: The FBI is going to need a strong leader, like J Edgar, moving forward, but with more ethics and more respect for the Constitution and in particular the Bill of Rights. Nothing to see here; just move along.
It is from The Old Gray Lady, the institution that used to lead the charge for freedom of speech and openness.
The author of this OpEd is former Special Agent Josh Campbell, from 2 February 2018.
I would be a lot more impressed with this cri de coeur if there was a mention of the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr, or some of the botched prosecutions where the Brady Rule was violated.
And, there is the sense, outside of Main Justice, that there is a certain arrogance on the inside, a certain sense that they are in charge. My prime example is Acting Attorney General Ms Sally Yates, who, when she couldn't agree with the President, defied him, rather than tendering her resignation. She should have talked to Special Agent Campbell.
Hat tip to the Drudge Report.
