Being skeptical of government is healthy. However, my take on the FBI in the last five years is that their senior leadership under Comey massively overshared, not that the opening of investigations was misguided or politicized. The FBI is the primary investigative agency for public corruption; anytime those cases happen the subjects potentially will accuse them of 'politicizing.' It's the way it's always been.Yep, I think it’s entertaining watching so many people jumping to conclusions, one way or the other, when we know very little about the actual facts or evidence of the investigation. I think the only reasonable take is to sit back and wait for the facts to come out, while also being skeptical of the fbi based on their recent track record. That doesn’t mean this investigation isn’t above board or won’t prove wrongdoing by trump, but someone would have to have had their head up their ass the last 5 years to not question the veracity of the fbi top brass or their willingness to politicize an investigation.
I agree, we will know much more about the substance and legitimacy of the raid once the affidavit gets released, which it appears will be in one form or another, although most likely highly redacted.
That's why there are federal judges that need to approve search warrants.
