German-American far-right billionaire investor Peter Thiel was just revealed as an FBI informant as recently as 2021, according to a new report from Insider.
Insider reported that alt-right activist Charles Johnson, also an FBI informant, initially introduced Thiel to Los Angeles-based FBI agent Johnathan Buma, who investigates political corruption and foreign influence campaigns. Following Johnson's introduction, the FBI allegedly added Thiel to its official database of "confidential human source" (CHS) informants, according to Insider.
In order to be added to this database, multiple layers of approval are typically required, and only those able to provide "valuable information ... on a recurring basis" are given CHS status. Once admitted to the CHS database, informants are then given a code name and a serial number to categorize reports.
The source added that Thiel's status as an FBI informant is meant to be a way for the billionaire to distance himself from the MAGA movement, which has repeatedly assailed both the FBI and the US Department of Justice in response to investigations focused on former President Donald Trump. Johnson told Insider that he believes Thiel is primarily informing on foreign governments' attempts to cement themselves within Silicon Valley. Johnson added that Thiel was explicitly told to not inform on former President Donald Trump or other US political figures.

The Stasi had 1/3 of East Germans working as informants
Are we at that level yet?
The dude was as Deep State as it gets from the start.
No surprises here or there.
99% of billionaires, including ALL the tech and biotech billionaires, for starters.
And the biden crime family goes merrily merrily merrily along. Wonder how many fbi agents are on the easily bribed list of the biden crime family ?
You never see the term “far left” in the lame stream media .
Why is that?
Another infiltrator to the Trump campaign.
Never trust fags.
I’m only vaguely aware of this guys name. Was it obvious that he was a government goon ?
Did you even read the article or are you just commenting on the headline ?
Sorry, but I don’t get what’s wrong with ‘informing on foreign governments’ attempts to cement themselves within Silicon Valley.’
Far-right? This article is bunk from the get go.
A rhetorical question, for sure.
The term "Far-right" tells me very little these days particularly when said about somebody from another country.
Populist vs Elitist is becoming more meaningful than left and right these days.
What’s ‘goon’ about helping to protect our technology from foreign governments?
Considering how the Chinese are stealing us blind of technology and intellectual property, we need LOTS of people like this - in Universities, too!
Yeah, right. We believe that.
name a single billionaire who isn’t scum... honest question.
It’s amazing how conservatives always came to the defense of the uber-rich because...well...capitalism. And now increasingly we’re learning that they hold those that voted for Republicans and corporate interests as useful idiots. Learning just how degenerate these “capitalist success stories” are has been a long time coming.
This article is worthless. Why out him now? What was he information was he giving the FBI?
