Robert F. Kennedy Jr. denounces the “militarization” of the FBI – RT World News
The US presidential candidate claimed the agency tried to destroy Donald Trump, undermining democracy
Democratic US presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has broken ranks with his party claiming the FBI was politicized to bring down Donald Trump – both before and after he was elected president in 2016 – making a “mockery” of the American political process.
“This is not a partisan skirmish,” Kennedy said Monday in a Posting on Twitter. “It’s about the political weaponization of the FBI to destroy a candidate and then a sitting president. It’s about a matrix of lies so elaborate that it makes a mockery of the democratic ideal of informed citizenship.
Kennedy made the comments in response to last week’s release of the Durham Report, which found the FBI violated its own standards by launching an investigation into allegations that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to win the US election. 2016.
Special Prosecutor John Durham’s four-year investigation found the agency based its case on unverified allegations – leading to the “Russiagate” investigated during Trump’s presidency – and became a funnel for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign misinformation.
CNN and other US outlets that have touted the Trump-Russia allegations for years downplayed the Durham report, calling the damning findings about the FBI a “all great nothing.” Kennedy said the media’s role in the attacks on Trump was “perhaps the most disturbing of all.” He added: “The Durham Report reveals the abject complicity of the mainstream press, which has yet to admit being duped by the big lie, propagated it, and now continues to allow those lies to present themselves as the truth.”
Kennedy is the nephew of former President John F. Kennedy Jr. and the son of 1968 presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, both of whom were assassinated. Earlier this month he claimed the FBI was behind the murder of his uncle in 1963 and was likely involved in the murder of his father. He has a history of anti-establishment views, such as exposing the alleged dangers of certain vaccines, calling for the release of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, exposing Washington’s escalation of the Ukraine crisis, and criticizing the US military-industrial complex. .
Kennedy likened the media’s handling of Russiagate to its support for former President George W. Bush’s administration’s false claims that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction. He called the two stories “false mythologies” saying they were “Lies, lies and more lies.”
