Is the FBI to be feared by the White House for Deep State allegations about its leadership? Are some pundits in the mainstream media pushing for the FBI to drop back to the days of J. Edgar Hoover and wield a soft stick in the background? Look how these media maniacs look at the issue.
Note: This is a video fron 2017 and why is it relevant now? Because Mudd is now proclaiming that the FBI is poised to act against the President, and that the FBI is going to win and the President is going to lose: “So I’m going to tell you the FBI people are ticked. If you think you can push us off this because you can intimidate the director, you’d better think again. You’ve been around for 13 months. We’ve been around since 1908. I know how this game is going to be played. We’re going to win.”
As Written and Reported By Allahpundit for Hot Air:
I’ve heard garbage like Phil Mudd’s shtick in the clip below from various Trump critics over the last week, warning that Trump doesn’t know who he’s messing with, insinuating that not only would it be proper for the FBI to go to war with the president but that they can fight dirtier than he can if need be. This same agency is infamous for its decades of quiet and sometimes not so quiet abuses of power under J. Edgar Hoover. Is that what Phil Mudd wants to see happen to Trump — the full Hoover? Would he like to see Chris Wray overtly threaten the chief executive for the sin of focusing public scrutiny on his kingdom?
Does he want a “deep state” war on the White House?
Given the sort of rhetoric he’s used in the past about Trump and the intel community — “Government is going to kill this guy” — I have to assume the answer is yes.
Former CIA counterterrorism official Phil Mudd: The FBI people “are ticked” and they’ll be saying of Trump, “You’ve been around for 13 months. We’ve been around since 1908. I know how this game is going to be played. We’re going to win” https://t.co/5x39x20g3e pic.twitter.com/fByOLNrh0I

Then there’s this guy, whose bottomless sanctimony has alienated even many Never Trumpers. He postures as the conscience of the nation but consider what he’s recommending here.
