Garland and Wray have repeatedly stonewalled legitimate attempts at congressional oversight, sometimes (by this observer’s reckoning) almost criminally. In a Nov. 2 letter to Garland, ranking committee Republican Jim Jordan of Ohio listed an astonishing 32 outstanding requests for information (stemming from eight different inquiry letters from committee Republicans) that Garland or his agents have yet to fulfill. Likewise, Wray has failed to fulfill 38 informational demands from eight other letters.

MCCARTHY Proposes to reduce its mission.

“Lawmakers should be prepared to confine the bureau to its law-enforcement mission, which is vital,” McCarthy writes. “The domestic-security mission should be handled by a pure intelligence agency with no law-enforcement powers, in a manner similar to Britain’s MI5. That intelligence agency should be subjected to extensive congressional and Justice Department oversight, with highly restricted liaison to law enforcement, limited to significant national-security threats.”

The FBI is an immensely valuable agency with thousands of good workers. Its centralized top ranks, though, have become corrupted by too much power with too little accountability. House Republicans are right to limit its abuses, and McCarthy makes sense in proposing to reduce its mission.

Hard pass.

There is already oversight. The FBI and DOJ just ignore the oversight and we do nothing.

That bullshit about the "good guys in the rank and file" - I don't see any of them ever say a damned thing.

Not one person in the FBI had the integrity to call out the fake Mueller investigation, when the evidence pertaining to Carter Page was known to be false and in the FBI files. Shows you just how corrupt the FBI is.

Yes and I don't recall during any of that time hearing of an Agent speaking off the record to the press. At the same time when one considers the shocking surveillance power of the Agency, it is practically impossible for any one of the agents to speak out even anonymously. These ruthless LE organizations have not only the power to end careers but absolute unstoppable power to destroy lives.

It’s pathetic - let’s call the movement what it is “Defund the FBI”
Paoli. You recall the comment that the Democrat Senate leader Chuck Schumer said about Trump and the LE intelligence agencies. He said:

Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer spoke of in glee, in response to then-president-elect Trump’s criticism of U.S. intelligence agencies. “Let me tell you: You take on the intelligence community — they have six ways from Sunday at getting back at you,” Schumer told MSNBC’s host Rachel Maddow.

DO YOU DOUBT HIS WORDS? Why would he say such a thing? More importantly, WHY ARE YOU OKAY WITH ROGUE non-elected government employees? And answer this. If the FBI was stonewalling democrat congressmen, I have to assume you would too be okay with that. Yes or no?
