United States FBI boasts about attacking political left

This 19 January 2019 video from the USA says about itself:

FBI waged counterintelligence campaign against leftists, boasts ex-top official

Ex-official Terry Turchie admitted, “When I first got into the FBI one of the missions of the FBI in its counterintelligence efforts was to try to keep [progressives and socialists] out of government.” Turchie served as deputy assistant director of the counterterrorism division of the FBI, and made these remarks on Fox NewsTucker Carlson Tonight on 18 January 2019. While neoliberal centrist Democrats have portrayed the FBI as the Resistance™️, its former leaders are openly boasting of how they spent decades fighting against the left. In COINTELPRO, the FBI spied on and threatened leftists like Martin Luther King; and even killed communists like Fred Hampton.
