Outrageous: FBI Resorts to Punishing Whistleblowers

The FBI is no longer among the Guardians of the Galaxy, as they’ve clearly gone to the dark side with their latest CYA mentality.

If you’re wondering what CYA stands for- it’s the age-old motto: Cover Your Ass.

Agents ranked high and low are in a panic now that some FBI employees decided to speak out against the political rot in the organization. And it has tensions running high in FBI land. Sadly, these whistleblowers should be among those the FBI seeks to offer the utmost protection.

According to the Office of the Inspector General, the Whistleblower Protection Act (WPA) was established to ensure that employees who engage in protected disclosure are free from fear of reprisal for their disclosures.

Even the government’s website offers up this: “whistleblower retaliation is the taking, failing to take, or threatening to take a personnel action because of an employee’s whistleblowing.” And who would we normally call in to investigate such retaliation? Yep, the FBI.

So what do we do when agents go rogue?

That’s clearly what is going on at headquarters because the agents that came forward, speaking out against the “politicized rot” going on in our nation, woke up to find their security clearances revoked. Some employees were even suspended after they exposed “abuses and misconduct” happening in the FBI. You know, the kind of misconduct that allowed someone like Peter Strzok to undermine an entire election on behalf of Democrats like Hillary Clinton.

The Federal government has been weaponized people. The actual truth playing out in front of our eyes reads like the plot to some new drama airing on FX. It’s may not sound so scary right now, but if you sit back and think about what it means that the FBI is now a political agency, it becomes clear: we’re all in danger. Every single one of us.

The House Judiciary Committee writes, “The disclosures from these FBI employees highlight egregious abuse, misallocation of law enforcement resources and misconduct with the leadership ranks of the FBI”.

The Real Truth

One article I read dives deeper:

The report said that the FBI whistleblowers described the FBI’s alleged “retaliatory conduct” against them “after making protected disclosures about what they believed in good faith to be wrong conduct.”

Two whistleblowers — Steve Friend, a former FBI special agent, and Marcus Allen, an FBI staff operations specialist — had their security clearances revoked this month and are expected to appear for testimony before the Weaponization Subcommittee Thursday morning.

The committees’ report said the FBI suspended Friend’s security clearance and suspended him without pay after he made protected disclosures about the bureau’s handling of Domestic Violent Extremism cases, and after he expressed concern about the bureau’s handling of cases related to the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol riot.

Friend explained that the FBI’s handling of Jan. 6-related investigations “deviated from standard practice and created a false impression with respect to the threat of DVE nationwide.”

As for Allen, the committees’ report said the FBI suspended his security clearance for simply performing duties of his job — conducting case-related research using open-source news articles and videos and sending his search results to his task force colleagues.

Allen told the committees that he sent around links to open-source opinion videos related to the Capitol riot for “situational awareness.”

“Because these open-source articles questioned the FBI’s handling of the violence at the Capitol, the FBI suspended Allen for ‘conspiratorial views in regard to the events of January 6th,'” the report states, adding that the FBI did not give him approval to seek outside employment during his suspension.

You can bet the FBI is working hard to cover for their actions.

In fact, they are trying to justify such suspensions, saying:

The FBI said Friend’s top secret security clearance was revoked by the FBI on May 16, two days before Thursday’s Weaponization Subcommittee hearing. The letter states that Friend, in August 2022, “refused to participate in the execution of a court authorized, search and arrest of a criminal subject.”

“During his communications with his management about his refusal to participate, he espoused an alternative narrative about the events at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021,” the FBI said. “On September 3, 2022, Mr. Friend entered FBI space and downloaded documents from FBI computer systems to an unauthorized removable flash drive. The FBI then required Mr. Friend to attend a Security Awareness Briefing (SAB) regarding his actions, but he refused to do so.”

The FBI also said Friend “participated in multiple, unapproved media interviews, including an interview with a Russian government news agency.”

“Mr. Friend alleges he obtained approval from the FBI’s Office of Public Affairs (OPA) to participate in these interviews, but OPA did not provide such authorization,” the letter states. “Mr. Friend’s failure to follow FBI policies relating to social media contacts and his lack of candor poses a security concern.”

As for Allen, his top secret security clearance was revoked by the FBI on May 3, the letter states, after the bureau opened a security investigation into him in October 2021 following a referral from the FBI’s Charlotte Field Office. In January 2022, Allen’s security clearance was suspended based on security concerns.

“Specifically, the Security Division found Mr. Allen espoused alternative theories to coworkers verbally and in emails and instant messages sent on the FBI systems, in apparent attempts to hinder investigative activity,” the FBI said, noting that despite multiple directives from his supervisor to “stop circulating these materials,” Allen “continued.”

“As one example, on September 29, 2021, Mr. Allen sent an email using his FBI email account to multiple colleagues that contained links to websites and urged recipients to ‘exercise extreme caution and discretion in pursuit of any investigative inquiries or leads pertaining to the events of’ January 6,” the FBI said. “Another example included an email containing a link to a website that stated, among other things, ‘By now it’s clear that federal law enforcement had some degree of infiltration among the crowds gathered at the Capitol on January 6,’ to which Mr. Allen commented, ‘brings up serious concerns about USG participation.’”

The FBI added that the bureau “concluded that, in totality, Mr. Allen obstructed the FBI’s lawful investigation of a subject, and this behavior raised concerns about Mr. Allen’s judgment, trustworthiness, and reliability which indicates that Mr. Allen may not properly safeguard classified or sensitive information.”

Oh the irony!

The FBI charged with investigating the truth immediately debunked anything that didn’t fit their narrative. You don’t see any agents who bought into J6 on this list of suspended agents. So, the FBI would rather believe brainwashed followers over agents trying to truly assess the situation.

Sadly, it’s the same narrative we see in every facet of society these days. It’s the modus operandi on social media, for sure. Post something on Facebook that challenges leftists, you’re shadowbanned. I have a family member who works for a very large company that deals in logistics for the public sector. She feels like she dare NOT express any type of conservative value. Her retirement is on the line. But that’s the hypocrisy of the loving and tolerant left, as they are anything but…

While the FBI continues to purge conservatives from their ranks, realize this. You are no longer safe in any line of work. Unless you’re as lucky as I am, and you make a living exposing leftists for their rampant hypocrisies and crimes against America.
