We have heard other veterans of the FBI and the Department of Justice push back against this attack on the reputation of the FBI. Will you respond to this tweet by the President, is the FBIs reputation in tatters?>> The FBI that I see is tens of thousands of agents and analysts and staff working their tails off to keep Americans safe from the next terrorist attack, gang violence, child predators, spies from Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran.
The FBI that I see is tens of thousands of brave men and women who are working as hard as they can to keep people, that they will never know, safe from harm. The FBI that I see is decent people committed to the highest principles of integrity and professionalism and respect.
The FBI that I see is respected and appreciated by our partners in federal, state, and local law enforcement, in the intelligence community, by our foreign counterparts, both law enforcement and national security in something like 200 countries around the globe. That's the FBI that I see. Now, do we make mistakes?
You bet we make mistakes. Just like everybody who's human makes mistakes.
