Thanks to Trump’s fight with the Deep State, regular Americans have gotten a peek under the covers of how the FBI really works.
Previously known only to federal prosecutors, criminal defense attorneys and those targeted by the FBI (such as yours truly):
- FBI agents routinely lie to get warrants, entrap targets, gain indictments and secure plea deals
- The DOJ frequently breaks the law to pressure targets to plead guilty
- No adult citizen, no matter how virtuous, is actually ‘innocent’ under the law (given the number and scope of federal statutes and the intentionally vague nature of many)
- Many “crimes” involve no quantifiable harm and no identifiable victim
