The FBI sent a chilling threat to whistleblowers that should scare every American

More is coming out from the FBI that they’re rife with corruption and political maneuvering. Top FBI brass don’t want to be exposed for the activist Democrats they are.

That’s why the FBI sent a chilling threat to whistleblowers that should scare every American.

Over the past year, Americans have witnessed a once respected bureau of the federal government exposed for being nothing more than an arm of the Democrat Party.

With Joe Biden at the helm, the FBI has been used to target political opponents like Donald Trump and also target Americans, like pro-life activist Mark Houck.

Rather than focusing on preventing violent crimes or terrorist threats, they are more concerned with running the political errands of Joe Biden and his ilk.

Thankfully, many whistleblowers within the FBI have stepped forward to let Americans know exactly what happens behind closed doors.

Unfortunately, though, the FBI will do anything to stop them from speaking out.

Republicans in the House joined FBI whistleblowers in claiming “retaliation” for revealing political “rot” within the bureau, while the FBI revoked some of their security clearances and Democrats accused them of constituting a “national security threat.”

On Thursday, the Republican-led House Judiciary Committee and the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, chaired by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), released a report on the “politically weaponized” FBI and held a whistleblower hearing. Meanwhile, the FBI sent a letter condemning some of the witnesses testifying in order to refute their charges.

“The FBI’s mission is to uphold the Constitution and protect the American people,” an FBI spokesperson told the Washington Examiner late Thursday. “The FBI has not and will not retaliate against individuals who make protected whistleblower disclosures.”

Jordan praised the whistleblowers for speaking up and claimed they faced retaliation from the FBI as a result.

“They came forward, and I want to thank them for doing it. But because they did, man oh man, have they faced retaliation,” Jordan said.

The new House Republican report slammed the FBI for illegal “retaliation” against the whistleblowers who testified on Thursday: FBI special agents Stephen Friend, Garret O’Boyle, and Marcus Allen.

“Whistleblower testimony makes clear that the FBI rid itself of employees who dared to speak out against FBI leadership or to raise good faith concerns about FBI operations,” the report states.

“The FBI has taken personnel actions against whistleblowers who raised concerns within the Bureau and, later, to Congress. In several instances — Friend, O’Boyle, and Allen — the FBI weaponized the security clearance adjudication process to silence employees who fight against the politicized ‘rot’ within the FBI leadership.”

The GOP report added that “because a security clearance is necessary to work at the FBI, revoking or suspending an agent’s security clearance effectively indefinitely suspends the agent and leaves the agent to languish in an unpaid purgatory.”

The ranking member on the weaponization subcommittee, Del. Stacey Plaskett (D-Virgin Islands), described the FBI whistleblowers at the hearing as “men who lost their security clearances because they were a threat to our national security.” Plaskett also disputed that the witnesses were genuine whistleblowers.

The House Judiciary Committee Democrats said on Twitter that “the FBI has rescinded the security clearances of two of its agents testifying today over concerns regarding their allegiance to the United States.”

The FBI issued a letter on Wednesday in which it reiterated its decision to revoke security clearance access for three of the whistleblowers who spoke to Jordan’s committee.

When asked about the FBI’s letter during a Thursday morning press conference, Jordan replied, “It doesn’t frankly surprise me that the FBI puts out this letter the night before we’re going to have a hearing.”

Jordan’s right, it shouldn’t surprise anyone.
