Recent news is dominated by reports of FBI overstepping its bounds.
Critics criticize the sluggish or nonexistent investigations of Democrats, such as Hillary Clinton and her emails and the evidence discovered on Hunter Biden’s laptop implicating Hunter and/or his father, President Joe Biden. Yet the FBI is devoting resources on pointless investigations of former President Donald Trump and is searching his Florida residence for evidence.
The protracted investigation into the events that transpired in the Capitol on January 6 never resulted in charges being brought against the primary target, former President Trump.
The high-profile raid and the former president’s direct criticism of the FBI have revealed some of the bureau’s problematic tactics.
At this time, the special master appointed by Judge Aileen Cannon at the request of former President Trump has begun reviewing the records, and it has not yet been determined if any malfeasance has occurred.
The Department of Justice opposed the appointment of the special master, arguing that it did not require anybody other than itself to analyze the records.
Another specific instance highlights the FBI’s excess in the exposed case.

Mark Houck, a Catholic pro-life campaigner, was detained by FBI agents on Friday for allegedly breaching the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act. Mr. Houck is accused of assaulting a volunteer when he and his son were providing counseling services to women outside an abortion facility.
Noted political insider:
“Between 25 and 30 heavily armed FBI agents spewed from the vehicles and began pounding and yelling at the front door. Mr. Houck allegedly pleaded with the agents, “Please, I’m going to open the door, but, please, my children are in the home. I have seven babies in the house,” opening the door.
The SWAT team with rifles then arrested Mr. Houck. A man whose background gives no impression that a SWAT team would be necessary to bring him into custody.”
The FBI is currently embroiled in yet another scandal.
An insider in politics writes:
“At the beginning of last year, the FBI searched and seized a massive amount of assets at the U.S. Private Vaults in Beverly Hills. Depending on which news service you read or watch, the FBI confiscated items from 800 to 1,400 safety deposit boxes.
The items seized included $86 million in cash, jewelry, and $1.3 million in poker chips. Additionally, the FBI photographed password lists, credit cards, a prenuptial agreement, immigration, and vaccination records, bank statements, heirlooms, a will, and even cremated human remains.
