We don't have to waste our time "discrediting "the agency"", it's done a good job doing that themselves.

Sure it’s unfortunate, it’s unfortunate for the FBI

Wow, that was a very weak response by the FBI. And yes I read the whole thing, not just that paragraph.

Basically they first said it was all just standard conduct, which it clearly isn't when you consider the details of the case. Of course they didn't discuss those details.

Then they moved into "conspiracy theorist" accusations and pretending to be the poor patriotic hard working public servants that are being wrongfully slandered.

If that's the best they have to offer, it just makes me think their position is really weak.

How wonderful would it be if the FBI got banned from Twitter?

Wait… the agency that said “conspiracy theorists” and “misinformation spreaders” were terrorists, is calling people who criticize them “conspiracy theorists and misinformation spreaders”…

Hahahahahhahahah don’t they have some more pedophiles to cover up for?

Demand from your representatives that they’re defunded. Only vote for candidates who openly endorse getting rid of the FBI.

What a stain on this country.

I imagine the insiders having a meeting and saying to themselves, "How do we get out of this? I know, let's call it 'disinformation.' Worked before, right?"

The Federal Bureau of Instigation couldn't come up with a more verminous slur than "others" to accompany the old saw "conspiracy theorist"? Someone's slacking in the Namecalling Department.

Wow. How (not) impressive of them. I wonder how many of them have "Pinocchio" as a nickname? Until this blew up I might have assumed there were some IQs in that bunch. I am now assuming I was wrong. Congrats, buttheads, on discrediting yourselves! We're all so (not) proud.

The term "conspiracy theory" was created by the CIA after the JFK assassination to discredit alternative ideas on what happened to the official theory. Ideas that have turned out to be mostly true in the 50 years since.

Perhaps it is time for this phase to be terminated, with extreme prejudice. (As the CIA saying goes).

they have discredited themselves, they became Favouritism Before Integrity

The FBI statement includes, in part, the following: “traditional, longstanding and ongoing federal government and private sector engagements, which involve numerous companies over multiple sectors and industries.”

“You caught me robbing a bank, but I always rob banks so this should be no big deal”.

It's unfortunate that we've been caught lying and cheating. Please look over here at something shiny - Donald Trump's tax returns, and stop paying attention to what we're doing.

There. Fixed it for them.

I'm still waiting for all those "wonderful" and "professional" rank and file agents that the RINO virtue signalers insist make up the bulk of the FBI to show their faces. I'm tired of hearing that the problem is only at the top. If you're taking orders from scum and not either blowing the whistle (as a few have) or leaving the bureau, then you are scum too. You took an oath, start abiding by it.

I believe they mean "malinformation". True facts that discredit them with their own words. So what they said there is disinformation.

Also...please disregard the hundreds of emails between our agents and Twitter employees that prove what we were doing. 😅

Seems your FBI hasn't learned the lesson that you never ever volunteer information of any kind - and a statement as this is such a clear admittance of guilt it borders on a written confession.
