(From a “rank and file” and the very ordinary citizen) 

Dear Mr. Clapper: 

To say that the FBI is the “premier law enforcement organization in the world” implies the same underlying logic as to say that “Mr. Clapper is the most perfect gentleman in the world”. Both statements might very well be true, to put the issues of the criteria aside. However, it is also indisputable that the biggest “spy scandal” in the U.S., and maybe the World History, occurred on Mr. Clapper’s watch, and at least in part due to the actions, inactions, or very questionable, in retrospect, actions on the part of the FBI and their leadership groups, and their interminable power struggles. 

I would dare to say, Sir, that Mr. Clapper was hired by the American people (via President Obama) to be the country’s Chief Intelligence Officer, and not just, and not only, and not “first of all”, a “perfect gentleman”, which he, without any doubts, is. And therefore it was his direct duty to know what was going on. Apparently, the same error of the selective and the self-imposed blindness or the peculiarity in judgment interferes with your objective evaluation of the FBI and their role, which still is not fully known yet and which still is under investigation in and by itself. 

It is also puzzling, to say the least, why the FBI and Mr. Comey did not report to you (as you testified) about the “Trump Investigation” (call it by whatever official name) right when it was started by the FBI in July of 2016, especially in the light of the extraordinary importance of this matter and its possible implications. 

And this is just to comment briefly on this subject. Call them anything you wish, this scandal is the FBI’s and your responsibility and the hu-u-uge mistake, or the series of them, and neither of you should even try to disown them. 

Best Regards, 

Michael Novakhov
