The FBI, of course, continues to do good work.
当然,联邦调查局也还是有表现好的地方。

On April 25, local authorities in Sacramento and the FBI announced the dramatic arrest of the Golden State Killer.
4月25日,萨克拉门托地方当局和FBI宣布了“金州杀手”已经落网这一戏剧性的消息。

That same day it helped bust 39 people in Pennsylvania in a cocaine-trafficking investigation,
同一天,FBI还帮助逮捕了宾州一起可卡因走私调查中涉案的39名嫌疑人,

14 prison employees in South Carolina in a bribery case

and two men in New Jersey in a $5.3 million tax-evasion probe.

Assistant FBI Director William F.Sweeney Jr.,
联邦调查局助理局长小威廉·F.斯威尼

who runs the New York field office and oversaw the April 9 raid against Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen,
负责FBI的纽约外勤办公室,还监督过4月9日对特朗普私人律师迈克尔·科恩的突击检查,

says his agents' response to the turmoil has been to double down and (say), ‘Hey, we're gonna keep on moving.'
他说,他的特工们对这次骚乱的反应是加倍努力,想着:‘嘿,(联邦调查局的)工作还是得继续做啊。’”

Some question whether the FBI has gotten too big and has been asked to do too many things.
有人质疑,联邦调查局是否已经太过庞大,被要求做的工作是否太多了。

After 9/11, then FBI director Robert Mueller,
911之后,当时的FBI局长罗伯特·米勒,

who is now the special counsel leading the Russia probe,

made massive new investments in counter-terrorism and intelligence,

over unlocking an iPhone used by one of the terrorists in the San Bernardino, Calif., shooting in 2015, and beyond.

Critics say Comey's penchant for high-profile moral fights has, ironically, undermined the bureau's reputation.
批评人士说,具有讽刺意味的是,科米喜欢搞高调的道德战这一点反而损害了该局的声誉。

Trump himself has used that line of argument to challenge the FBI.

Democrats have questioned the integrity of the bureau as well,
民主党人对该局的诚信度也提出了质疑,

with Clinton and her aides claiming Comey and the FBI helped tip the election to Trump.

But the biggest difference between past crises and the current one,

according to virtually everyone interviewed for this article, is the President.
这次危机不同于以往最大的地方在于总统。

Trump has continually attacked the integrity of the institution and its leaders,
特朗普不断攻讦该机构及其领导人的诚信度,

alleging not just incompetence but bad faith in the commission of justice.
不仅指控他们无能,还指控他们在执行正义的过程中存在欺诈行为。

Ronald Hosko, who retired in 2014 after 30 years at the bureau,
在该机构工作了30年,于2014年退休的罗纳德·霍斯科,

compares the moment to a wildfire,
在提到联邦调查局的现状时打了个野火的比喻,

saying Trump "is either the spark that creates the lames,
说特朗普“(在这次危机中扮演的)要么是制造了这些问题的火花(的角色),

or he's standing there with a can of gas to stoke the lames."
要么是站在旁边,提着一桶汽油准备火上浇油(的角色)。”
