Terry Turchie, former Deputy Assistant Director of the Counterterrorism Division of the FBI, went on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News program and said this:

“When you take the election, and you take the House, and you now convert all the committees that you have, to investigating various aspects of the President of the United States, then your lifeblood has to be to react to stories. So, you’re going to see more stories planted so that all these committees can have a lot of work to do. And I think this is just more of the same, and I think we can expect more of this, because quite honestly, the electorate in some places is putting more and more progressives and self-described socialists in positions, and ironically, years ago when I first got into the FBI one of the missions of the FBI in its counterintelligence efforts was to try and keep these people out of government. Why? Because we would end up with massive dysfunction. And massive disinformation and massive misinformation. And it seems to me, that’s where we’re at today.”
