Almost Half of Americans Believe FBI Acts as ‘Biden’s Personal Gestapo’
The FBI has been branded as 'a group of politicized thugs'
Many American voters now believe the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is acting as Joe Biden’s “personal Gestapo," referring to Adolf Hitler’s secret German police.
But just 15 percent claim to have a "Very Favorable" view of the agency.
In May last year, 60 percent had a favorable impression of the FBI.
Forty-seven percent now view the FBI unfavorably, and those who have a Very Unfavorable impression sit at 26 percent.
The FBI has been branded as “a group of politicized thugs at the top of the FBI who are using the FBI … as Joe Biden‘s personal Gestapo."
Forty-six percent of voters agree with this description.
Twenty-nine percent "Strongly Agree."
The figures come following recent FBI raids on journalists who reported on the diary of Biden’s daughter Ashley, which claimed the President showered with his young daughter.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation was also accused of working with insiders on the Governor Whitmer kidnapping case.
The agency is also accused of playing a significant role in the January 6th riot.
Even left-wing outlet Newsweek cited a group of “shadowy commandos” based at Quantico (the FBI academy) playing a covert role in the riot.
From the claim that the FBI was acting as Biden’s personal Gestapo, just thirty-eight percent of Americans disagreed, while 25 percent said they Strongly Disagree.
Fewer voters now view the FBI director as independent of the administration.
As The NationPulse reported:
Just 10 percent of voters now say Christopher Wray is better than most who held the job before him – down from 13 percent in May 2020 – while 25 percent actually believe Wray is worse than most previous FBI directors, up from 17 percent in 2020.
Thirty-seven percent think Wray’s performance as FBI director has been about the same as most of his predecessors, with the rest “unsure.”
The news will rankle FBI leadership, and comes as Joe Biden’s own approval ratings slump even further.
