Stop accusing the Trump administration of attacking the FBI

Under present circumstances, I don’t understand why anyone would accuse President Trump or Republicans of attacking the FBI. The allegations are quite credible and focus on the political appointees at the very top of the Department of Justice and the FBI. Nobody is reproaching the 99 percent of hardworking, exemplary line members of these agencies. If the charges of corruption at these highest levels could possibly be true, doesn’t every American desire it be investigated and the agencies rehabilitated? We must set aside our political differences and dig in to find the truth.

AP: State of our union by the numbers

The stock market is soaring, smashing record after record. The unemployment rate has ticked downward. Some categories of violent crime are down, too. But more U.S. troops are stationed in war zones. More people are dying of drug overdoses. More people think race relations have gotten worse under Trump. A statistical deep dive into the state of the union before President Trump offers his own assessment on Tuesday night.
