Hillary Clinton shared a tweet Thursday stating it’s “totally crazy” to suggest the FBI opposed President Trump’s candidacy and now is against his presidency since the bureau “helped sink” Clinton’s presidential campaign.
The post, from Harvard Law School professor Laurence Tribe, encouraged fellow Twitter users to share his post about the alleged anti-Trump bias at the FBI if they agreed with him.
“Retweet if you agree it’s totally crazy to suggest that the FBI — having helped sink Hillary’s campaign by revealing that she was under investigation while concealing that Trump was being investigated — has secretly been anti-Trump all along,” Tribe tweeted Wednesday night.
Clinton then shared his tweet Thursday afternoon.

Trump has accused top FBI officials, including FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and longtime FBI investigator Peter Strzok, of having an anti-Trump bias.
Some congressional Republicans have also questioned whether the FBI remains unbiased and have condemned McCabe and Robert Mueller, the special counsel overseeing the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
Their criticisms follow revelations that Strzok and a FBI lawyer, Lisa Page, exchanged text messages mocking Trump during the 2016 campaign.
Strzok worked on the FBI’s probe into Clinton’s use of a private email server and went on to work with Mueller on the Russia investigation.
But Mueller removed Strzok from the investigation after he discovered the anti-Trump messages.
Trump and other Republicans have raised concerns about McCabe's impartiality because his wife, Jill, received campaign donations from a political action committee backed by Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a Clinton ally.
