Following Recent Developments, the RPV Comments on the Current State of the FBI

Richmond, VA – “The FBI leadership during the Obama administration damaged its reputation with its hyper-partisan activities,” said RPV Chairman John Whitbeck. “We have been talking about this problem since 2016, and the American people deserve accountability from the leadership of our country’s highest law enforcement agency. I applaud President Trump’s actions in handling this situation.”

“With that said,” continued Whitbeck, “the most important thing for the American people is to recognize that the rank and file FBI employees are not the same as the leadership, and Republicans are very grateful for their service.”

Virginia State Senator Dick Black, who defeated McCabe’s wife in a 2015 election, offered this comment:

“Americans are distressed by corruption at the highest levels of the FBI. Nonetheless, my heart goes out to the McCabe family.”
