There is no 99% by Jonas
As the excesses of the Obama Era Department of Justice are shared with Americans, media, commentators, like Sean Hannity, in a spirit of uninformed politeness qualify their reports by saying "Comey, et al are not reflective of the 99% of good agents in the FBI and the Department of Justice."
The fact is, there is no 99%.
The outrageous conduct and warrant abuse to support partisan false narratives in the Department of Justice is a cultural fact at all levels. The only difference is abuse by an FBI Field Office and politically ambitious Democrat prosecutors may not have the same appeal as a political coup involving a U.S. President.
Sara Carter's references to a bigger problem than what has thus far been publicly reported and the current FBI Director's recalcitrance on responding to addressing FBI misconduct confirm the non-existence of Hannity's 99%.
My first hand experience is limited to an Assistant U.S. Attorney posturing for a Congressional seat and the supporting misconduct of the FBI field office. Nonetheless the conduct is too identically arrogant to not reflect a toxic culture. There are certainly good federal agents, but outrage is not responsibly confined to Comey and crew.
