FBI Agents Want Congress To Issue Them Subpoenas So They Can Reveal The Bureauís Dirt
Daily Caller ^ | 5/22.2018 | Kerry Picket

TheDC independently confirmed the veracity of the consultant’s position and access, and reviewed detailed transcripts of his Q&A with the special agent, who requested the arrangement due to internal dragnets and fear of vicious retribution.

These agents prefer to be subpoenaed to becoming an official government whistleblower, since they fear political and professional backlash, the former Trump administration official explained to TheDC.

The subpoena is preferred, he said, “because when you are subpoenaed, Congress then pays…for your legal counsel and the subpoena protects [the agent] from any organizational retaliation…. they are on their own as whistleblowers, they get no legal protection and there will be organizational retaliation against them.”

DiGenova — who along with his wife, Victoria Toensing, has represented government whistleblowers in the past — agreed, telling TheDC, “It’s an intelligent approach to the situation given the vindictive nature of the bureau under Comey and McCabe. I have no idea how to read Chris Wray, who is not a leader and who has disappeared from the public eye during this entire crisis. You know, he may be cleaning house but if he’s doing so, he’s doing it very quietly.”

Most of Congress doesn’t want the facts to come out.

I guess a patriot who stands up and speaks the truth without being paid or protected is just old fashion and outdated.

Intetesting if true.

Sadly, it is looking like Sleepy Sessions doesn’t want the facts aired, also; a few of his Senate butties might be exposed.

Being a patriot shouldn’t involve loss of ability to work and provide for yourself. Our elites have created an infrastructure where investing in a job costs $300,000+ and, if you lose the job you trained for you lose everything permanently.

I, for one, think our patriots DESERVE our protection. God knows that the anti-American Deep Staters have been long protected from justice.

Now we’re cooking. People on the ground working with these azzholes are ready to share testimony.

There have been lots of real American patriots who’ve stepped forward without pay or protection. And some paid a big price for doing so. To me they are true heroes.

But if these feds won’t do it without financial help and or protection, so be it.

Do it!

I have been disappointed by the lack of public resignations from the FBI followed by press conferences, but this might be better.

I don’t blame them — they’re being realistic.

Easy for you to say. How many people would be willing to suffer being wiped out financially causing great harm to your family in the name of patriotism? In the real world, not many. Look at General Flynn who had to sell his home to pay his legal bills and was forced to plead guilty to a manufactured crime.

We’ll see what the non-risk takers can contribute. Lets hope it’s good.

You might want to read up on our founding fathers, the revolution, etc.

Unfortunately, that’s most likely true.

Funny, a lot of grunts don’t just run the risk of losing their career. Why should we expect less from an FBI agent?
