Why would Trump use the FBI, CIA, NSA to investigate the Bidens when those organizations are full of Obama people?

    I know this is going to blow your mind, but when you are hired for a position in the federal government, they DON'T ask what your political affiliation is. In face, it's illegal.  The idea that a president could somehow stack the federal government with people based on their political leanings isn't just ridiculous, it's impossible.

    Political appointees are often placed based on their political affiliation, which may have an impact on how the job is carried out, but generally, those winds don't have much overall impact.

    And in reality (as opposed to your imagination), most federal employees are pretty quiet about politics.  It has nothing to do with the work, so it simply isn't discussed.  About the worst impact I've seen is occurring now, where we are seeing a brain drain due to the anti-science leaning of the Republican Party, putting profit over science.

  • Funny, the question was why wasn't he using them before. Doesn't really matter now, the documents from the Ukraine government that have come to light. Will lead the way not only into Hunter and his dealings. But into the missing money and  ambassador Volodymyr Yelchenko role in it.

  • Trump doesn't have any reason to rely on people who may be impartial.

  • Why would you insult the Americans you want voting for you? Trump has been pretty harsh on the voters working in the fbi, cia, and nsa.

  • They are full of civil servants from both parties who are trained to follow the manual. That is a concept that is beyond him.

  • He would if he could get away with it. Those institutions are not meant to be used by the president as a shield to protect his political friends and as a spear to attack his domestic political enemies. Honorable career employees will resign in protest if they are abused in this way.

  • So you're saying as soon as Obama took office he purged the CIA, FBI, and NSA of all their agents and replaced them with his own people,,, there was nobody in any of those agencies from the Bush years,,,, and even though Obama was able to do this for some unknown reason Trump was unable to purge the same agencies and restaff them with his own people,,

    Is this what you're trying to tell us.

  • So instead he choose his own sleazy personal lawyer?

    LOL

    Or was because the agencies involved in doing those kind of investigations would have told him to stop wasting their time on his own personal smear campaigns.
