The FBI is in big trouble.
They were caught red handed spying on the Trump campaign.
Jeff Sessions dropped the hammer on the scandal plagued Bureau in the wake of the FBI botching a lead on the Florida shooter.
Initially it was reported that a Mississippi man contact the FBI when the Florida shooter left a comment on one of his videos professing his intentions to carry out a school shooting.
Then the news got worse.
It was revealed that an associate of the gunmen contacted the FBI in January and informed the Bureau that he was disturbed and likely to carry out an act of violence.
FBI Director Christopher Wray was forced to admit that the Bureau did not follow protocol in the lead and it slipped through the cracks.
That was enough for Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
He announced the Department of Justice would conduct a thorough review of the FBI.
The Daily Caller reports:
“Attorney General Jeff Sessions ordered Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to “conduct an immediate review” of both the Justice Department and FBI Friday.
Sessions referenced the new revelations into the FBI’s mishandling of tips on suspected Stoneman Douglass High School shooter Nikolas Cruz, which he called “tragic.”
“It is now clear that the warning signs were there and tips to the FBI were missed,” Sessions wrote in a statement. “We see the tragic consequences of those failures.”
“The FBI in conjunction with our state and local partners must act flawlessly to prevent all attacks. This is imperative, and we must do better,” he continued.
Sessions demanded the review would help both bodies “reach the highest level of prompt and effective response to indications of potential violence that comet to us.”
It’s about time the FBI clean up its act.
They seem to have unlimited time and resources to investigate the fake news about Russia collusion, but are asleep on the job when it comes to protecting Americans.
