    One such notable incident was the death of Border Patrol Agent Rogelio Martinez last November. Martinez, who was on-duty at the time, was found dead from blunt-force trauma in a roadside drainage ditch in West Texas 30 miles from the Mexican border. The border patrol union speculated Martinez and his partner were ambushed by cross border smugglers, saying they were attacked with rocks. Trump, who was amidst a legislative push to crack down along the border, citing instances of violent crime, pounced on the case. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz followed up with a tweet of his own.

    On Wednesday, nearly three months after Martinez’s death and Trump’s definitive tweet, the FBI announced its investigation had found no evidence that Martinez’s death was the result of foul play, and that it instead appeared to be accidental. “To date none of the more than 650 interviews completed, locations searched, or evidence collected and analyzed have produced evidence that would support the existence of a scuffle, altercation, or attack,” the FBI El Paso Field Office said in a statement.

    What ......so both of them suffered blunt force trauma accidently? His partner is unable to say what happened? They needed 650 interviews and 3 months to arrive at that conclusion, seems plenty weird, maybe the bashers would feel better if Trump said that agent "could of been my son".

    All of the other agents knew about this drop off where they supposedly fell, but somehow these guys didn't know about it? Hardly.

    Illegals crossing the border isn't ever an issue anyway, just ask the families of Kate Steinley and the Colt's linebacker.

    Ya, we need to appoint a special council to this investigation and load the council up with former Clinton camp members since they are relentless and are willing to spend millions of dollars finding nothing over a year and a half.
    Mueller should be available soon.
