  • Here are the whistleblowers scorching the Biden administration on Hunter probe, IRS, FBI

    Whistleblowers have emerged over the last several years to accuse the Biden administration of mishandling the federal investigation into Hunter Biden, politicizing federal law enforcement agencies and shielding evidence related to a "criminal scheme" Joe Biden allegedly engaged in as vice president. Whistleblower protections are enshrined in federal statute, and federal law protects these disclosures. The protocol is for a whistleblower to first go to an immediate supervisor or the supervisor in charge with the issue at hand. If the whistleblower believes that reaching out to a supervisor could jeopardize his or her well-being or that supervisor is implicated in...

    In an explosive House committee hearing on Thursday, several whistleblowers accused the FBI of engaging in a complex series of highly corrupt and partisan activities, including the manipulation of statistics, targeting of political opponents, and retaliating against whistleblowers seeking to expose the agency’s corruption. The revelations come days after a report from U.S. Attorney John Durham revealed the FBI had no evidence then-candidate Donald Trump colluded with the Russians when it launched its Crossfire Hurricane investigation into the former president’s 2016 campaign. While speaking before the House Judiciary Committee, former FBI special agent Steve Friend said he filed protected whistleblower...

    If there is any question as to why a hyper-politicized FBI has failed to attract many whistleblowers, Thursday's coming congressional testimony from real FBI whistleblowers should show how they treat their whistleblowers. According to JustTheNews:Three FBI whistleblowers will testify to Congress on Thursday about the bureau's alleged retaliatory efforts against them for questioning FBI practices and narratives on sensitive political issues.As House lawmakers continue to investigate the politicization of federal agencies under the Biden administration, numerous individuals within those organizations have come forward with claims of misconduct at the highest levels, and have often reported severe professional backlash from their...

    Rep. Jim Jordan secured the in-person testimony of former FBI officials Garret O'Boyle, Steve Friend and Marcus Allen - all who have been suspended for vocalizing concerns. The witnesses will detail on Thursday how they have been 'retaliated' against by the FBI for speaking out. The officials say the FBI has inflated statistics on 'domestic violent extremism' to fit the Biden administration's political narratives ...

    "Federal agencies cannot conceal their wrongdoing behind illegal nondisclosure agreements and related documents," Grassley and Johnson wrote. Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley (Iowa) and Ron Johnson (Wisc.) sent letters to the Justice Department demanding answers after a former FBI agent said he was forced to sign a nondisclosure agreement that did not include the legally required whistleblower exceptions allowing him to come forward to Congress. Whistleblower protections have been enshrined in federal law for more than a decade, and federal agencies may not use taxpayer dollars for nondisclosure agreements without including whistleblower exceptions. However, former Special Agent Steve Friend, who came...

    The House Science, Space, and Technology Committee on Thursday launched a bipartisan investigation into the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) of the U.S. Department of Commerce over allegations the agency’s chief had engaged in whistleblower retaliation. The Committee members alleged that Inspector General Peggy Gustafson and “senior members” of the OIG had engaged in the retaliation, made misleading statements to Congress and conducted operations with “gross mismanagement,” according to a letter signed by Chairman Frank Lucas and Ranking Member Zoe Lofgren, an Oklahoma Republican and California Democrat respectively, citing reports received by the Committee. The letter also notes the...

    The Washington Post and Rolling Stone issued corrections on stories about the House Republican-led Weaponization of Government Subcommittee after making claims about FBI whistleblower and former agent Stephen Friend. The Washington Post's correction, which was added to the top of an article published Friday titled "Democrats challenge credibility of GOP witnesses who embrace false Jan. 6 claims," stated: "An earlier version of this article erroneously said former FBI official Stephen Friend had not reported to a supervisor one of his concerns related to the use of a SWAT team in arrests related to the Jan. 6, 2021, riots.

    Thank God for the selfless FBI whistleblowers who are spilling the beans on the rancid ideology that has infected that powerful federal law enforcement agency. The leaks from inside keep coming and they show that the FBI abuses its power in dangerous ways, surveilling and victimizing law-abiding Americans while doing little to control violent crime in our cities or doing anything about the porous border that is allowing industrial quantities of lethal drugs, and millions of illegal migrants, including criminals and terrorists, into the country. Those menaces are not a priority for the Biden administration or Attorney General Merrick Garland’s...

    The House Judiciary Committee’s Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government held its first hearing Thursday, featuring tips from dozens of former FBI agents and the testimony of two former agents who have come forward to expose politicization within the agency. The two former agents, Thomas Baker and Nicole Parker, spoke on their experiences while working at the FBI. Parker said that she is enduring the stress of “putting a target” on her back and testifying to speak on behalf of “numerous current and former bureau employees who feel similarly that they do not have a voice.” House...

Jim Jordan (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a lawsuit on behalf of FBI analyst Marcus Allen in the U.S. District Court for the District of South Carolina against FBI Director Christopher Wray for violating Allen’s constitutional rights by falsely accusing him of holding “conspiratorial views,” stripping his security clearance, and suspending him from duty without pay (Marcus O. Allen v Christopher Wray (No. 22-cv-4536)).The FBI revoked his security clearance because apparently the FBI believes that any views contrary to its...

    The FBI simply cannot be trusted. This report proves it. On November 4, 2022, the Republican staff of the House Judiciary Committee published a report based primarily on whistleblower testimony, describing how the FBI and the Justice Department have become politically weaponized against conservatives. I strongly urge every AT reader to download the report and spend 30 to 60 minutes reading the first 50 pages. Here are a few of the salient points. The Washington Field Office is manipulating its case filing system to feign a nationwide rise in domestic terrorism.The geography of where a crime is committed ordinarily determines...

    An FBI whistleblower has told the House Judiciary Committee that he witnessed the bureau’s deputy director violating security policies and putting classified information at risk. The special agent told lawmakers that Paul Abbate, who oversees all FBI domestic and international investigative and intelligence activities, used his smartphone in an FBI sensitive compartmented information facility, or SCIF, which is a violation of bureau security protocols. Just bringing a phone into the SCIF is a security breach. The senior agent accused Mr. Abbate of walking around in the SCIF while talking on the smartphone and sending text messages and emails.

    Rank-and-file FBI agents say they cannot see how FBI Director Christopher A. Wray stays in his position after the Washington Times’ exclusive report about a senior bureau official stepping down under scrutiny for suspected political bias impacting investigations. Kurt Siuzdak, an attorney and former FBI agent who represents whistleblowers at the bureau, said agents are telling him that Mr. Wray has lost control of the agency and that he should resign. “I’m hearing from [FBI personnel] that they feel like the director has lost control of the bureau,” he said. “They’re saying, ‘How does this guy survive? He‘s leaving. He‘s...

Yes, the calvary is here, and they’re opening up and telling a lot of really wild and damning stories about what’s really going on inside the hallowed halls of the disgraceful FBI.

    Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), the top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, has been fielding whistleblower allegations against officials at the Justice Department and FBI since last November. Breitbart News spoke with Jordan and his staff about the whistleblowers after multiple reports circulated this week that took comments Jordan made on the matter during a recent television appearance out of context. Jordan said Sunday to Fox News’s Trey Gowdy that 14 whistleblowers from within the FBI had come forward to his office:
