Fox News host Brian Kilmeade backed former President Donald Trump in his criticism of the FBI, calling out the seemingly partisan and shady investigations the agency has undertaken.
During Tuesday’s “Fox & Friends,” Kilmeade discussed the bias of an FBI assistant special agent who just announced he is retiring, slamming the bureau after the controversial raid on Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s Florida home.

“How the hell does this guy get to retire?” Kilmeade demanded after reports about Timothy Thibault who was accused of making negative comments about Trump and the part he allegedly played in suppressing the Hunter Biden laptop story.
“This is the guy who is suppressing the Hunter Biden story that has direct financial links to the future president of the United States,” a fired-up Kilmeade said. “How this guy is able to retire even though he was walked out in shame is unbelievable!”

“Put him with Lisa Page and all those others that, if you are President Trump, how can you back the FBI? How can you not question the sanctity of the raid?” Kilmeade demanded.
“That’s why you don’t blindly black the blue. That’s why is law enforcement right or wrong. It means you have no credibility if everything you think they do is correct. It means when you praise them, it means nothing. And which is 99 percent of the time,” he railed. “But you are going to tell me that this guy had just one bad year and one candidate just drove him over the top, Donald Trump? I’m sure that his record is checkered with a lot of dicey stuff…Are we next?”
The segment went on to include a clip of columnist Miranda Devine saying Thibault is just “one of a cabal of FBI officers, many of them centered at the Washington field office, who have been playing these games since the very beginning of Donald Trump’s entry into politics.”
“There just seemed to be an unlimited number of these agents and analysts there to do their dirty work,” she said.
After more discussion with his colleagues, Ainsley Earhardt and Steve Doocy, Kilmeade questioned what the chief of the FBI has been doing while the bureau has been facing scrutiny and backlash.
“What is Christopher Wray doing, by the way? You are an investigator, head of the FBI, and under your watch, the FBI is not being investigated!” he wondered.
Kilmeade also asked, “why would the FBI raid the Mar-a-Lago compound over records that you’re negotiating to get out.”
The topic led Kilmeade to conclude that Trump has been right, and who could blame him, for railing against the FBI.
“If you are President Trump and you know what’s going on with six agents who should have been fired, resigned and living in disgrace, and now you find out this happens, and then you find out additional information leading up to the 2020 election, and you say to yourself ‘how can you trust anything?’” he said.
“You do not blame him for wondering what is going on with the investigations and the scrutiny on him. How Paul Manafort ends up in solitary confinement? How Michael Flynn is ruined by FBI agents who happened to show up and, you know, Roger Stone on down,” Kilmeade noted.
“Life ruined, life ruined, life ruined and they’re focusing now on what they consider their big guy and that’s President Trump,” he added.
