Republican Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin is anything but a bomb thrower.
So it’s striking that, on Tucker Carlson’s show this evening, Johnson—speaking of the actions of former FBI director James Comey and Obama AG Loretta Lynch—said that there was “deep-seated corruption at the highest levels of the FBI.”
In support of his allegation of deep-seated corruption, Johnson, chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, cited:
- The fact that at the time Lynch said she would abide by the FBI’s conclusions on Hillary Clinton, she already knew that Comey was going to recommend exoneration of Hillary.
- The preparation of the FBI memo exonerating Clinton two months before the FBI interviewed her.
- The missing five months of missing text messages between two Trump-hating FBI agents.
Johnson hastened to add that “the vast majority of FBI folks are high-integrity, they’re risking their lives to keep us safe.” But, he concluded: “at the upper level, what we’re trying to uncover is a level of corruption that needs further investigation.”
