That's not surprising--the FBI is doing what it is in the nature of bureaucracies to do. And we, unfortunately, have to remain ever vigilant against it.
On a side note: "Long before Sarah Palin was keeping an eye on pesky Russians from the governor's mansion..."
Sarah Palin never said that, Tina Fey said that while playing Sarah Palin on Saturday Night Live. I do wish you people would get off the politics. Your thing is technology issues from a somewhat libertarian perspective. Every time you venture into partisan politics, you reveal yourselves to be ignorant and stupid.
As any politico reader knows, if Trump accurately says other NATO nations aren't pulling their weight, but also says he had bacon and eggs for breakfast when really he just had eggs, while Clinton correctly says her dress is white and then lies about taking bribes while secretary of state, then they are both 50% honest.
And if Trump goes on to say he drives the speed limit when he was clocked doing 66 in a 65 zone while Hillary says nothing while her campaign pays people to go to Trump rallies and start fights so the press can write about violence at Trump rallies, then Hillary is, statistically speaking, more honest than Trump.
Almost everyone hates political correctness in the abstract, but almost everyone has their sacred cows that must be protected. You can tell someone's true level of support for free speech by how they react when you gore their ox.
(Is that a mixed metaphor? Or close enough for government work?)
Fact checking itself is a biased business with a problematic history. (Most fact-checking outlets are rightfully seen as shading their judgments to benefit a particular candidate or party.) If Facebook gets into that game, they will undermine themselves without adding a meaningful benefit to their audience.
Living in a free society, where citizens have rights necessarily entails making things harder for law enforcement. The KGB, the Stasi, they had it made. But that doesn't create any great desire in me to go commie. I'm fine with a police force that has to do a bit of extra leg work and occasionally can't close case. That's a trade off I'll happily take.
Fuel surcharges on airplanes (because apparently the airline didn't anticipate needing fuel when it set its prices), half a dozen line items on your phone bill, your cable bill. Buying a car? Good luck getting it for the agreed-upon price. Dealer delivery fee? Seriously?
Hidden charges are everywhere. Supposedly we have laws against false advertising, but one would never know it doing business in this country.
