    Reform the FBI to appease conservatives? Or for more corrective ones with issues that have gone on for decades?


    LGDB: certainly the latter. I'm asking about the larger systemic problems with the FBI. The temporary conservative interest in FBI reform is almost certainly due to Trump's recent legal troubles and in bad faith.

    I'm asking do you think the larger priority should be making Trump ineligible for the presidency or reforming the FBI?

I would say the later, but extend it to all levels of policing.

Holding Trump accountable is important, but even if Trump would go to jail for this, I doubt it, it does not change the political strength behind him and they would just back Desantis or somebody similar and it keeps going.

One would be systemic improvement and the other would be something of a hollow moment, although I think Trump belongs in jail for Jan. 6th if nothing else, but I see the chances of that as near zero. Regardless of what I think.

I'd also say that "making Trump ineligible" should not be anyone's goal. Hold him accountable? Yes. Investigate the documents situation thoroughly? Yes. Charge anyone (yes, even Trump) if the evidence shows they are guilty? Yes. But making him ineligible to run for office should be a possible outcome of the investigation, never the goal.
