President Trump has ordered every single FBI agent to undergo a polygraph test in the aftermath of recent politically motivated leaks at the bureau.

Sara Cater, investigative reporter for Circa News, says she believes Trump is ‘shaking up’ the FBI in order to oust pro-Hillary agents who are trying to undermine his presidency.

Foxnews.com reports: Attorney General Jeff Sessions told Congress last month there were 27 open investigations into leaks of classified information with a “political motive.”

Carter said it’s not clear if all of those probes are centered on the FBI, but she said the investigations have included lie-detector tests.

“This is a big investigation. What I know is that they have been running polygraphs on people within the FBI. They are looking for leakers and a lot more information is gonna come out. I think there’s going to be a shakeup,” she said.

Fox News has learned that the Justice Department is in the process of handing over to the House Intelligence Committee the anti-Trump text messages that got a key FBI official removed from Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.

The actions of Peter Strzok while working on the Hillary Clinton email investigation have also come under scrutiny. Strzok was removed from the Mueller probe over the summer.

On Tuesday, Judicial Watch released an email showing another Mueller deputy, Andrew Weissmann, had praised outgoing acting Attorney General Sally Yates after she was fired in January by Trump for refusing to defend his travel ban.

Carter said she finds it “hard to believe” Mueller didn’t know these things about Weissmann and Strzok, since he’s known for being very thorough and detail-oriented.

She agreed with President Trump’s assessment of an FBI in “tatters” when it comes specifically to senior-level FBI officials, but not rank-and-file agents.

Tainted (no, very dishonest?) FBI “agent’s role in Clinton probe under review.” Led Clinton Email probe. @foxandfriends Clinton money going to wife of another FBI agent in charge.

You know what I say? Revoke the rights for government employees to vote or donate to any political organization, political group or political affiliation.

Reserve those rights for the hardworking taxpayers and Congress (and presidential candidates).

Why? Because the government should not be allowed to be bias! They need to do what is ethically and morally right, by the books - and should not be allowed to engage in political affairs! We need a new strict code of ethics: any political affiliation and you are OUT of government!

Politics should be reserved for the people and their Congress and of-course whoever is elected President. All others should enforce the rule of law and bring justice whenever needed!

Literally a meme

1) the machine doesn't do any detecting, it just shows your vitals

2) most people aren't pathological liars and will most likely have some kind of physiological change if they lie, especially if they are convinced they are going to be found out

3) every cop show makes it seem like the polygraph is 100% effective so that the public will believe it is

in other words, all you have to do is convince the person running the machine.
