After failing to frame President Trump with fake Russia BS, anonymous FBI agents now resort to gaslighting legitimate speculation

Meanwhile the same Stalwart Media and FBI lament the “hyped-up political climate” THEY continue to fan in the hopes they can save the establishment crooks one more time.

If the FBI and DOJ stop lighting political arson fires, and stop their media gaslighting, perhaps responsible persons can put the fires out.

The FBI can start by reigning in the mass shooting patsy crew.

  • FBI agents are horrified that President Donald Trump promoted a baseless conspiracy theory on Twitter suggesting the Clinton family was involved in the death of the disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein.

  • The Justice Department announced that Epstein died by “apparent suicide” and there is no evidence that the conspiracy theory Trump retweeted has any merit.

  • “The Epstein case was hypercharged from the get-go,” one current FBI agent, who requested anonymity to freely discuss Trump’s actions, told INSIDER.

  • “The last thing investigators need is the president of the United States fanning the flames with these bulls— theories that have no basis in reality.”

  • Another agent told INSIDER that Trump’s actions make the FBI’s job harder as it combats homegrown extremism, particularly after its latest finding that conspiracy theories pose a new domestic-terrorism threat.

  • “It’s not hyperbole to say that when the president makes up these stories — or promotes stories made up by others — he’s putting innocent lives at risk,” said one former senior Justice Department official.

FBI personnel are furious that President Donald Trump retweeted to his 63 million Twitter followers a baseless conspiracy theory suggesting that former President Bill Clinton was involved in the death of the disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein.

Angel Ureña, Clinton’s spokesperson, responded to the tweet, posted by the right-wing comedian Terrence Williams, on Twitter, writing: “Ridiculous, and of course not true — and Donald Trump knows it. Has he triggered the 25th Amendment yet?”

The Federal Bureau of Prisons announced that Epstein, who faced multiple charges of sex trafficking involving underage girls, died by “apparent suicide.” He was placed on suicide watch last month after prison guards discovered him lying semiconscious in his cell with marks on his neck, suggesting that he had tried to kill himself.

But Epstein was taken off suicide watch six days later, and, at the time of his death, he was alone in his cell and was not monitored by guards who were supposed to check in on him every half hour.

There is no evidence that the conspiracy theory Trump retweeted has any merit. And FBI agents who spoke with INSIDER said the president’s actions aren’t just irresponsible but also dangerous.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said on Fox News Sunday that Trump “just wants everything to be investigated.” Attorney General William Barr announced on Saturday that the Justice Department inspector general and the FBI are investigating the circumstances surrounding Epstein’s death.

But the president’s actions make investigators’ job harder, not easier.
