In a recent podcast an award-winning journalist made the stunning claim the FBI is not a law enforcement agency, and it is now just a protection racket for American oligarchs and their deep state D.C. puppets.

Michael Moore, who now blogs under the name Thomas Paine, was an award-winning journalist in New Jersey.

What’s happened to the FBI is shameful – and you can thank Obama for this mess.

He’s the one who weaponized the intel communities (and IRS) to use against his political enemies – and as you can see he’s done a great deal of damage with this power he bestowed upon himself.

Now, we have an intel community that has lost public trust and support because the whole “racket” appears partisan and deeply politicized.

However, as “Thomas Paine” points out – intel has indeed been weaponized but also provides cover for elites.

President Trump has his work cut out for him.

He’s going to need to do a major purge within the CIA, FBI, and NSA if he hopes to ever truly “drain the swamp.”
