Over the past several weeks, Trump and his Republican backers have begun attacking the FBI as a veiled attempt to derail Mueller’s investigation without the president having to fire him. Anyone who isn’t a Trump fan, which is a vast majority of America, is fed up with Trump’s and the GOP’s attacks on the FBI.
Republican Sen. James Lankford broke with Trump on Saturday to throw his support behind the FBI. Lankford commended the FBI for successfully derailing a planned Christmas Day terrorist attack in San Francisco. Where was the president to congratulate their efforts?
Sen. Lankford tweeted:
“The thwarted ISIS-inspired attack on San Francisco’s Pier 39 is yet another example of the amazing work that the @FBI & intel community do every day. Most Americans will never know these heroes or the many threats they stop. I’m thankful to Christopher Wray & his team.”
