    Nina Turner: Americans Should Be Concerned About Cohen FBI Raid Going Too Far

    Americans Should Be Concerned About Cohen FBI Raid Going Too Far, Fmr Dem Lawmaker Says

    Civil rights activist and former Ohio state senator Nina Turner said Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union that Americans should have “some concern” about how the FBI is running its probe into Trump lawyer Michael Cohen.

    It wasn’t the most enthusiastic defense of Cohen, but worth pointing out since Turner is a Democrat and a Bernie Sanders ally. Host Jake Tapper asked her about what she thought about the FBI’s raid on Cohen last Monday. She said it concerned her a “little” and it remained to be seen if there were any abuses, but, she added, “certainly, throughout the history of this country, especially where it comes to African-American folks, I mean, Black Panthers, Dr. King, Malcolm X, and other civil rights freedom fighters. You can see that sometimes the government can go too far in its effort and be skewed one way.”

    2. ffs, this is incoherent babble! Her false equivalencies

    are truly insulting. Comparing civil rights icons to a sleazeball lawyer protecting a racist mob boss who all colluded with a foreign power to undermine our Democracy. C’mon! Make this stop. It is truly self-serving, sniveling, incoherent tripe. Embarrassing.

    edit-this is the length she will go through to deny that Hillary was screwed over and to ignore the Mueller investigation. She will not deal with reality.

    13. Its not really a false equivalency

    Because here’s the second half of the quote:

    “Now that’s not to say that the Cohen incident is parallel to that, but as American citizens, we should have some concern for how this goes, even if it’s against somebody we don’t like…it’s not about like or dislike, it’s about how we operate as a government.”

    She specifically said that they weren’t equivalent, while reminding us that the FBI doesn’t have a good track record.

    31. You can waste your time parroting Trumps CONCERNS

    about the FBI, but now you’re really off on a tangent. The Russia /Trump investigation is very real. You should read about it because it’s not going away.

    This is an unprecedented time in our nation’s history. Thank God there are some true Patriots left, FBI or otherwise to put these traitors away.

    51. She is a traitor to progressives to give aid and comfort to Trump. screw Nina.
    No truth allowed if it doesn't benefit Democrats or conform the hatred liberals have of President Trump and Republicans.

    32. Equating a mob lawyer with civil rights fighters?

    That person is off her rocker.

    39. She is just too weird to be head of anything at all

    So back in the day the FBI terrorized civil rights leaders. Yes, that's true. But this current situation is in no way parallel? So why the fuck do you even bring it up? She is nuts nuts nuts. <--- Nina Turner

    So this just part of the Progressive/ Liberal / SJW M.O.

    The Rights of people mean nothing to them because it gets in the way of what they want right now.

    Civil rights are only for some people. Got it.

    Good to know you are okay with the concept before it is used against you.

    You hit the nail on the head. You know if this had been Obama's attorney, there would have been great weeping and gnashing of teeth over in DUmmieland.

    The truth is that the raid is disturbing because it violates rule of law. The FBI has often violated rule of law--especially during the civil rights era--but apparently, since they "are" the law, the are free to violate it. Or something like that.
