In all the news forthcoming from this White House, it is easy to miss a tidbit like this one, which is the FBI Agents Association’s response to the president’s handling of the Rep. Devin Nunes memo. The association representing 14,000 rank-and-file FBI agents said on 2/2/ 18 that they will not allow “partisan politics” to distract from their mission.

These FBI agents are not taking President Donald Trump with his sycophant republicans in the White House, the US Congress and others’ relentless orchestrated attacks against the “rule of law,”  the FBI and the DOJ (US Department of Justice), laying down. They are fighting back to rightfully protect these agencies from partisan politics and the thrashing of their reputations. Below, there are links to their statements, made public.

Here is the rest of the story…

On February 2, 2018, Brandon Carter of the Hill penned the following report, “FBI Agents Association on memo: We won’t allow ‘partisan politics’ to distract us”


“The FBI Agents Association on Friday (2/2/18) released a statement saying the agency’s rank-and-file would not “allow partisan politics to distract us” after the release of a previously classified GOP memo alleging abuse of government surveillance powers by the Justice Department.”

“The men and women of the FBI put their lives on the line every day in the fight against terrorists and criminals because of their dedication to our country and the Constitution,”  group president Thomas O’Connor said in the statement. “The American people should know that they continue to be well-served by the world’s preeminent law enforcement agency.”

“FBI Special Agents have not, and will not, allow partisan politics to distract us from our solemn commitment to our mission,” he said.

The statement follows the release of a memo, written for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) by his staff, which accuses senior Justice Department officials of improperly using information from the so-called Steele dossier to obtain surveillance warrants on a member of the Trump transition team.

The full memo can be read here.


President Trump announced Friday  (1/31/18) he approved the release of the memo, calling its revelations disgraceful.

The White House made no redactions to the document, despite reported requests from law enforcement officials.

“Trump approved the release of the controversial document despite objections from top officials at the FBI and Justice Department, who said the memo contained misleading, incomplete and erroneous information.”

On Wednesday, the FBI issued a rare public statement warning against the expected release of the memo, saying it has “grave concerns” about its contents.

The FBI Agents Association on Thursday release a statement of support for FBI Director Christopher Wray after Wray reportedly warned the White House against releasing the document.


  1. Gronda, the so-called party of law and order greased the skids for a morally corrupt leader to condemn hard working members of the FBI. The Nunes memo was a political hatchet job and a bad one at that. It is very believable that the rumor of the White House having a hand in this is true.

    Apparently, the FBI reporting and responses to follow-up on Porter is also at odds with the White House. The Republican leaders need to speak openly and with concern about their dishonorable and maybe corrupt boss. Their slip is indeed showing. Keith

    • Dear Keith,

      There is the very real possibility that this will cost republicans their seats in November 2018. Many conservatives recoil from what too many republicans are doing by thrashing the FBI, DOJ and the “rule of law.”

      Hugs, Gronda


  2. Taking a slightly British left-wing view:
    So the FBI’s Trade Union is protesting against the treatment of its members by the government?
    Who would have believed it back in the 1960s?
