It’s time Congress and the Trump administration took up the mantle of real reform and drained the swamp for real.
Rep. Francis Rooney, R-Fla., said on Tuesday that in order for the White House and members of Congress to be certain that all bias — Left or Right — was removed from some federal agencies, a purge of existing personnel needed to happen, and soon, or else the country would continue to suffer through the “Deep State” bias shown to President Donald J. Trump and his administration over the past year, the Washington Times reports.
“I would like to see the directors of those agencies purge it and say, ‘look, we’ve got a lot of great agents, a lot of great lawyers here,’ those are the people that I want the American people to see and know the good works being done, not these people who are kind of the deep state,” Rooney said on MSNBC, where no doubt he was mocked behind his back.
And okay, it really isn’t Right-wing bias that needs to be purged because there isn’t any; it’s all Left-leaning, pro-Democrat bias that must be purged, and quickly.
Case in point: Rooney made his comments in the context of an ongoing situation at the FBI where one agent, Peter Strzok, has been found to have demonstrated clear bias against the president in text and email messages he sent to his mistress, FBI lawyer, Lisa Page.
In addition to being lead investigator into Hillary Clinton’s obvious criminal mishandling of classified emails, Strzok was also a principal figure in special counsel Robert Mueller’s continuing, bogus probe into Team Trump “collusion” with Russia during the 2016 election.
Mueller did reassign Strzok when the texts were discovered by the Department of Justice’s inspector general; as a gag, perhaps, Strzok — who, again, is having an extra-marital relationship at work — was reassigned to work in human resources.

But, aside from that, Republicans see a larger pattern of abuse against conservatives by federal officials in the FBI, Department of Justice, the IRS and elsewhere. They also point to former FBI Director James Comey’s incredibly biased “investigation” into Clinton’s emails, in which he exonerated her (when really that was the attorney general’s job). Comey made the decision to let her off the hook months in advance, according to memos and other documents congressional investigators have obtained.
Other lawmakers and former Justice Department officials also believe that Congress and the Executive Branch (paging Attorney General Jeff Sessions) should begin a purge of top and ranking officials who have long since devolved into little more than Deep State operatives and shills.
Someone who feels strongly about this is former U.S. attorney, Joe diGenova, who recently told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson that the ongoing probe into alleged “collusion” between Trump and Russia is putting the nation into a “constitutional crisis.”
“What you have now unfolding inside the FBI and Department of Justice under [former President] Obama was a brazen plot to do two things: To exonerate Hillary Clinton because of an animus for Donald Trump, and then if she lost to frame the incoming president for either a criminal act or impeachment,” diGenova said.
“This is one of the most disgusting performances by the senior officials at the FBI and the Department of Justice that every one of these agents should be fired and the people who are still in the Justice Department be fired,” he said. That includes empaneling a “federal grand jury to investigate the conduct of [FBI Deputy Director Andrew] McCabe and [FBI agent Peter] Strzok and [FBI lawyer Lisa] Page and [former FBI Director James] Comey and [DoJ official Bruce] Ohr and everybody in the Obama Justice Department that even touched this.”
