No Sir, it does not seem stupid. If you know the Government, you know of course that those in power at the top in the White House and at the heads of Committees on the Hill in both houses of Congress will indeed fight to stay in power no matter what they have to do to do so. However, After committing 35 years of my life including ten in the military serving my country I have acquired some knowledge of how the rank and file feel in the trenches of Government and believe me it is not what those in the White House and ranking members of Congress feel. They are citizens just like you dedicated for the most part in doing the best job they can with the resources and constraints put upon them by the Administration and Congress. But you refer to the FBI and other Law enforcement types who you feel must do the bidding of the Administration and the Congress and not that of the people. That is just not the case in my experience. I have worked directly with FBI Agents and other Agency law enforcement types in my 35 years and provided information gathered from my job and work that indeed warranted their investigative efforts and which resulted in criminal actions being filed. That is from my own personal perspective. The question you pose is one that is slightly more complicated so let me refresh your memory and point out that there are some notable examples of the FBI and other Federal Law enforcement types investigating and charging some very powerful figures in our Congress in past years with some serious crimes and some of them were not only stripped of their titles and jobs but were sentenced to Prison for the crimes they committed. That we are aware of crimes being committed by those in power in the current congress and administration does not mean that the cognizant law enforcement agencies are not looking into what they are doing and gathering evidence to prosecute them. And a caveate, it also does not mean that they are either. It is just in my own experience and knowledge that it is highly likely that there is an ongoing investigation into allegations of criminal activity and it will be brought out at the right time. Certainly one can understand that getting a solid prosecutable case that will stand up in court presuming that a prosecutor can be found in a corrupt administration with the cahonas large enough to bring such an action in Federal District Court is going to take time. Time to get it right, time to gather all the evidence and time to convince superiors that the time is right to prosecute. Yes politics again but then we all knew that. Some of the worst offenders in Congress resign when the press outs their particular conduct and it is so onerous they cannot take the heat of trying to fight it. Others will protest vehemently and act as if there is nothing to it and will continue as long as they can to hold their position until it finally becomse untenable then they cave in and the courts decide their fate.
Before we condem our law enforcement, many of whom are just like us with the same feelings and angers as well as frustrations at the acts of corrupt politicians as our own I feel that we must give them the benefit of the doubt and rely on them to do the right thing. I do not consider that as stupid. Rather I consider it proper and respectful of the wonderful job they do on a daily basis keeping us free from acts of terrorism and other criminal as well as warlike acts against our country and we the people.
But make no mistake about it, I do not believe that the Justice in the Justice Departmet is entirely trustworthy. When we have the likes of our current Attorney General and six of his attorneys who were all representing terrorists in Guantanamo, and now they are considering treating them all as criminals instead of subject to military justice, something is wrong with that picture. And consider also that the Attorney General and Assistant U.S. Attorneys have to give the go ahead with the prosecutions not the FBI which investigates and builds the cases, that too raises some question as to whether just is being served timely or must it wait until we have a new administration. Justice will prevail of that I am certain, my only question is when. I do pray that it is long before We the People become so fed up with the actions of an out of control Congress and Administration that we are moved to act on our own before justice is carried out. That is the only thing I fear because I do know that desparate despots and our Government is now rife with the likes of them will do desperate things to stay in power or to achieve their nefarious objectives most of which we al are aware of. To the extent that we can bombard them with NO YOU CANNOT often enough for them to get the message and then listen to the message we can expect to make some headway. That it seems that half a dozen of the worst players at the top do not seem to want to hear the message is the real danger and the very persons that will need to have a close scrutiny of their dealings come the days of reckoning. \
In Closing, I am saying not to lose heart nor to give up, it may seem stupid but I assure you it is not.
and do try to give our professionals in Law enforcement some credibility, they have kept us safe for some time since 9.11.01, they can do so a little longer at least. Meaning they have the situation in hand and will do the right thing at the right time. If not, we always have our Grand Jury mechanism. And we can remind law enforcement that Grand Jury proceedings are a Civilian (citizen) priviledge not law enforcement privilege.
