When it comes to voters by their income status, individuals making over $200,000 hold a much more favorable view of the FBI.
The FBI is an unconstitutional government agency that’s dedicated to harassing lawful Americans. It’s an unaccountable bureaucracy that continues to grow in power and scope at Middle America’s expense.
For any semblance of freedom to remain in place, the FBI is one government agency that has to be totally dismantled.
