1) I listened to @AllInWithChris podcast earlier featuring the Tues 14 May 2019 episode of the show. @ChrisLHayes, @MIchelleinBklyn & @MatthewAMiller discussed what the US Attorney General & FBI should(n't) do among other topics. #Inners
2) Repeatedly stated was the FBI doesn't investigate political enemies of the POTUS, a caveat to which I'd like you 3 to consider. J Edgar Hoover was neither POTUS nor AG; he was FBI director while repeatedly using his post to disparage MLK Jr. On 19 Nov 1964, Hoover penned a...
3) ...letter to a colleague in which he hoped for King's murder. Hoover intentionally mischaracterized King, calling him a liar, something inducing apoplexy if hurled at white men...calling for proving what's in folks hearts & carrying on. While not necessarily a...
4)...political opponent of Lyndon B Johnson (then POTUS) there is a history of the FBI doing what the #Inners segment proclaimed it hasn't. Apples & oranges? Maybe. On 10 Oct 1963, based on Hoover's hostility toward King & convenient accusations of being a communist, Robert...
5) ...F. Kennedy (then US AG) approved wiretapping King, something he supposedly regretted later. Was the wiretapping warranted b/c white citizenry at the time in multiple polls disliked King? Polls made King an enemy of the nation & not the target of a hateful...
6) ...emotional-intelligence-lacking FBI director & skittish AG? I composed this thread b/c usually the utmost conversational discipline is exercised on #Inners. Hayes & his guests contextualize topics appropriately, something Chris does on #WITHPod too (I love that podcast).
END) I was disappointed the FBI & AG's histories were not properly contextualized. Have a great Thursday. ~KAV
