I think it's worth having a thread on this because, as they say below, "this move is shortsighted and dangerous."

The Real-Life Dangers Of President Donald Trump's FBI Remarks
The Morning Joe panel discusses how the president and other Republicans are publicly dismissing Special Counsel Mueller and the FBI and why this move is shortsighted and dangerous. The panel also discusses Trump’s contradictory claims about the FBI.

"Shhort-sighted and dangerous" is about right. The superpolice of the country undermined by the president...

Trump doesn't even know what he's doing. What harm he's doing to the FBI, the intelligence community, the country, and... himself!

Trump Supporters Are Stepping Up Their Attacks On Bob Mueller And The FBI
Ryan J. Reilly, HuffPost

WASHINGTON ― As the special counsel investigation into possible Russian interference in the 2016 election draws closer to President Donald Trump’s inner circle, the president’s supporters have launched an aggressive effort to undermine Robert Mueller and the legitimacy of the nation’s premier law enforcement agency, painting the FBI as a hotbed of liberal activists bent on taking Trump down.

The extraordinary attacks on the FBI and of Mueller ― a well-respected former law enforcement leader who is also a registered Republican ― appear intended to set the stage for Trump to fire the special counsel, whose team has already secured charges or guilty pleas from four Trump associates.

Trump denied on Sunday that he planned to fire Mueller, just as he’d said he wouldn’t fire James Comey, the former FBI director Trump dismissed in May. But Trump did tell reporters that it was “quite sad” that Mueller’s team had obtained his transition team’s emails, which were hosted on a government server.

“Not looking good. It’s not looking good,” Trump said. “My people are very upset about it. I can’t imagine there’s anything on ’em, frankly, because as we said, there’s no collusion. There’s no collusion whatsoever. A lot of lawyers thought that was pretty sad.”

Trump’s transition team had claimed in a letter to members of Congress that the General Services Administration, which hosted email services for the transition team, had “unlawfully produced... private materials, including privileged communications” to the Mueller team.

Peter Carr, a spokesman for the special counsel, said in a statement to HuffPost and other outlets that the special counsel team had “secured either the account owner’s consent or appropriate criminal process” when they obtained emails in the course of a criminal investigation.

The revelation that Mueller had access to the Trump transition team’s emails was only the latest fuel for the GOP and conservative attacks on the special counsel and the bureau. In recent weeks, opponents of the investigation have focused on text messages that two former members of the special counsel team exchanged about Trump during the campaign, before Trump was elected.

The attacks on Mueller and the FBI have gotten more extreme in recent days. Jeanine Pirro, a Fox News commentator who recently met with Trump, called the special counsel investigation a “criminal cabal” and the FBI a “crime family” and suggested that top ranking bureau officials should not only be fired, but taken “out in cuffs.”

Fox News host Jesse Watters hosted a segment calling the investigation “crocked from the jump,” suggesting to viewers that “we have a coup on our hands in America.”

Donald Trump Jr. retweeted the clip.

Quote:
@FoxNews

.@jessebwatters: "It's like the @FBI had Michael Moore investigating the President of the United States." @WattersWorld

And Fox News hosted a segment with White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, which featured the chyron “A COUP IN AMERICA?”

The latest round of attacks came after a House Judiciary Committee hearing with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein last week in which Republicans repeatedly accused the bureau of partisanship over the 2016 text messages between two FBI investigators that disparaged Trump (as well as Democrats like Martin O’Malley and Bernie Sanders).

FBI agents are allowed to privately express political views, and the texts only came to light because the two officials were allegedly having an affair and they exchanged the messages on their work phones, which made them easy for DOJ officials to access.

Officials in the Justice Department’s press office allowed some reporters on the DOJ beat to view the text messages ahead of Rosenstein’s testimony last week, which raised alarms for some Democrats who viewed it as an attempt to undermine the special counsel probe (from which Attorney General Jeff Sessions is recused).

In a statement on Friday, the Justice Department Inspector General’s office ― which is leading the probe of the two FBI officials ― said it was not consulted about the release of the texts to the media, but had told officials they did not object to providing the text messages to Congress.

Mueller is probably the only honest man in Washington. Let him finish the investigation. If Trump has nothing to hide he has nothing to fear.

Republican Attack On Robert Mueller Donald Trump Investigation Falls Apart
Rachel Maddow looks at how the Donald Trump campaign was already having contact with Kremlin-connected Russians as the FBI warned them about exactly such outreach, and points out that the texting scandal Republicans have tried to whip up is not actually good for Trump.

It is not just Trump wondering what is going on with the FBI.... Congress too....

The FBI has refused to explain to congress what it was doing with the "dossier".

"A group of House Republicans has gathered secretly for weeks in the Capitol in an effort to build a case that senior leaders of the Justice Department and FBI improperly — and perhaps criminally — mishandled the contents of a dossier that describes alleged ties between President Donald Trump and Russia, according to four people familiar with their plans."

Here's one article:

Oh Unmask I read that article and you only picked out certain bits.... Naturally the Republicans don’t really want to have Trump found guilty of anything because it might then mean he was illegally elected President and that a Democrat (who actually got lots more votes than Trump) should really be President. However if you bothered looking at News channels other than Fox et al you would see that now even some Republicans are saying the investigation should have access to everything just to get to the bottom of things and find out the real truth. Obviously these politicians are not diehard Trump supporters. You really are making a goose of yourself aren’t you and like our Fearless Leader I think many of us would like to slap some sense into you. super grin

Stop being such a birdbrain and peruse other media sources for a change and see what is happening out there in the real world not the fake news world full of alternative facts. Sheesh even your beloved Fox News seems to be getting a few more sensible journalists questioning Trumps doings and questioning all the lies he spouts in interviews and via twitter....(*)
