Active and retired FBI agents are not shying away from President Trump’s continuing rhetoric that the bureau’s “reputation is in tatters.”

“Attacks on our character and demeaning comments will not deter Agents from continuing to do what we have always done—dedicate our lives to protecting the American people,” the FBI Agents Association, FBIAA, said in a statement on Tuesday, without mentioning Trump by name, Fortune reports.

On Dec. 3, Trump tweeted about the FBI: “After years of Comey, with the phony and dishonest Clinton investigation (and more), running the FBI, its reputation is in Tatters – worst in History! But fear not, we will bring it back to greatness.”

The FBI Agents Association listed hundreds of cases that have been solved by hard-working agents to make the country safer.

“Controversies of the day fade, but the sworn duty of Special Agent endures,” the statement reads. “Special Agents are focused on the Constitution and protecting the public. Their works should be recognized, not denigrated.”

A Pennsylvania man sentenced to 70 years in prison for threatening to kill FBI agents and rape one of their wives and daughters was denied a request for a reduced sentence.

Justin M. Credico, 36, was urging the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit to approve his appeal of his convictions and prison sentence, PennLive.com reports

The judges said Credico provided no good reason to overturn the original penalty.

In 2008, the West Chester man began making harassing phone calls to the FBI’s Philadelphia office until about mid-2014. The recipient of many of the calls was an agent who Credico blamed for being expelled from West Chester University.

Credico was busted making death and rape threats to an agent who recorded the messages on a tape recorder.

A foreign law enforcement agency alerted the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to several file of an underage girl engaging in sexually explicit behaviors.

The FBI was able to track down the videos to Hondo between 2015 and November of this year.

“The kids are bait, and it’s very lucrative and common that adults are seeing kids as sexual objects, and we just need to stop that because it’s not okay,” said Dottie Laster with the Heidi Search Center.

According to a criminal complaint, Whipple admitted he produced the videos and shared them online.

The troubling, mysterious death of a Border Patrol agent and the serious injuries of his partner have remained unsolved a month after Agent Rogelio “Roger” Martinez was found dead near Van Horn, Texas.

Martinez’s fiancée Angela Ochoa believes the best source of information on what happened may be the survive agent, Stephen “Michael” Garland. Trouble is, Garland has told investigators he can’t remember what happened.

“I mean, I know he saw something,” Ochoa told CNN. “I know he knows. But what he knows, I can’t tell you. I don’t know.” 

President Trump and the agents’ union quickly blamed violent, undocumented immigrants, saying they struck the agents with rocks.

But the FBI and local authorities have not found evidence of an attack and believe the agents may have fallen accidentally into a ravine.
