Skip to comments.30 ex-FBI agents stand up to support whistleblower who exposed agency’s political bias
Posted on 09/29/2022 8:37:05 AM PDT by bitt
Thirty former FBI agents, including a retired deputy assistant director, head of counterterrorism and five SWAT team members, have spoken out publicly in support of suspended FBI whistleblower Stephen Friend.
Their heartfelt messages, obtained exclusively by The Post, show a deep and widespread anguish about the politicization of the FBI.
“It’s time to stop the FBI from being the enforcer of a political party’s ideology,” says Ernie Tibaldi, a retired agent from San Francisco. “We need to re-establish the FBI as the apolitical and independent law enforcement entity that it always was.”
He expressed gratitude to Friend “for having the courage to stand up to the corruption that has taken over the leadership of the FBI.”
Many former agents hailed Friend, a SWAT team member in Florida, as a “hero” after he was punished for refusing to participate in what he regarded as unnecessarily heavy-handed SWAT raids over Jan. 6 misdemeanors.
In his whistleblower complaint to the Department of Justice inspector general, Friend alleged that the FBI has been manipulating case-file management in order to falsely inflate the threat of domestic terrorism, and using unconstitutional excessive force against political dissenters.

A whole 30, eh?........................
May God bless Mr. Friend and those who have spoken in his defense.
Bravo! Thank you!
Hmmm... No one slurping at the trough, though, chose to stand up.
Only 30? Just how many agents are in the FBI? Guess the rest are just fine being jackboot NKVD thugs for the Communist Party of the United States.
Hey, that’s 30 more than I expected. Are there any active agents who have any ethics?
Well it’s a start.
Everyone who joins these evil institutions joins their souls to destruction, no matter whether their personal task is innocent or not.
Those within these institutions should leave them and expose them, as a matter of greater moral good.
Life in prison is better than a single instant in hell. Prison is a terrible thing but it does not mark the soul for eternity.
Government employees do not want to lose pension and health benefits.
Indeed. Which makes it even more of an heroic act by Mr. Friend.
Sure ain’t what it used to be (or what we thought it to be), is it?
They need to stop it alright and fire the entire administration that allowed this.
Soon to be reorganized into the KGB once the NKVD is sufficiently discredited . . .
Hey, all's good, Hannity says 95% are good guys.....
“...how many agents are in the FBI?”
7800 Special Agents
Search came up with:
How many people work for the FBI?
The FBI employs approximately 35,000 people, including special agents and support professionals
About 7,800 of these are Special Agents.
“Government employees do not want to lose pension and health benefits.”
If we take over in 2024 then we need to purge the FBI of every agent that has taken part in these politically bias actions. Not only should they be fired, they must lose their pension and health care benefits. The message should be clear, no politics in Government agencies. Period!
“It’s time to stop the FBI from being the enforcer of a political party’s ideology...”
It’s years too late for that. The problem is entrenched. Time to knock it down and start over.
Seems to be only a single one.
“We need to re-establish the FBI as the apolitical and independent law enforcement entity that it always was.”
