In the 80s and 90s, because of my business, I worked with people from numerous three-letter-agencies. Great guys to work with, smart, we hung out, I asked a lot of questions and learned a lot over a long period of time. I wondered if things had changed since DHS was created, but maybe not, which is good.
I don't know about the other agencies, but one thing I can tell you about the FBI is that they are extremely focused on their reputation. Their reputation is golden and is their stock in trade. People trust the FBI implicitly which helps them tremendously in their work. The worst sin you can commit is to bring dishonor of any kind on the reputation of the Bureau.
So, when I saw Trump repeatedly accusing the FBI of all kinds of things and trying to drag them through the mud, I was curious what would happen. If it was the FBI I knew 25 years ago, they would not take this lightly nor forget, ever, nor let him just walk away and forget about it. I predicted that, eventually, when the time was right, something would happen. I was just commenting about this a couple weeks ago, and here we are.
Trump generates so much evil nastiness every day of his life, I chuckle that the FBI is probably overwhelmed and can't decide where to start. Hahaha.
The article uses the word revenge, but I think a reckoning is more accurate. And, I have a feeling this is just the beginning.
