Blogger Don Surber noted on Aug. 11 that the FBI “spying on Donald Trump on behalf of Obama” was the “last straw” for him. He had earlier called for the the replacement of the FBI.
In calling for the indictment of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe in 2018, Surber wrote: “The end game should be the repeal and replacement of the FBI with an agency that helps local and state law enforcement officials. The United States was never intended to have a national police force. Yes, federal laws should be enforced. But over the years, the FBI has tried to entrap politicians (Abscam) and otherwise abused its power. The refusal by FBI officials to honor a congressional subpoena shows a contempt not only for Congress, but for the Constitution and the American people. FBI agents put their lives at risk every day to protect and serve America, but the fish rots from the head down, as the saying goes. Throw the fish heads in prison, and re-assign everyone else.”
Many are calling for the elimination of the bureau following the raid on former President Donald Trump’s Florida residence at Mar-a-Lago.
