Someday people who consider Jones and his opinions vile will not be on top. Then their freedom to write and speak and publish what they think will feel threatened, and they will feel marginalized. What will they say then?
The FBI values its independence: that is, it does not want to operate under anyone’s authority, including the president’s, the attorney general’s, and certainly not under any supervision from the judiciary.
