U.S. President Donald Trump accused the FBI and the Justice Department of politicizing its investigations on Friday, just as the White House is expected to approve the release of a secret Republican memo alleging FBI bias against him in its Russia probe.
The comment echoes Sean Hannity’s own word choice late Thursday night. While calling for the release of the memo, Hannity repeatedly criticized the FBI and DOJ, but added: “not rank and file, we love you guys.”
The top Leadership and Investigators of the FBI and the Justice Department have politicized the sacred investigative process in favor of Democrats and against Republicans – something which would have been unthinkable just a short time ago. Rank & File are great people!

Every time Hannity mentions the FBI on his show tonight, he hastens to say “not rank-and-file, we love you guys.” He’s said it twice now so far.
