FBI insiders claim rank-and-file members are losing confidence in Director Christopher Wray, who is a Trump nominee, as they are exposing the highly political underpinning of the organization, which is being used against Trump and his supporters.
The evidence is escalating in Independent media, which are shining a light on the usurpation of all levels of law enforcement, national, state, and local, highlighting that the American people are in grave danger of the institutions they put their trust in for law enforcement.
“REVEALED: Brave whistleblowers are exposing how the nakedly political FBI IS out to get Trump – now read TOM LEONARD’s damning dossier on the chiefs who are plunging America’s once proud Bureau into its gravest crisis ever,” is a headline at the Daily Mail.
The same people who want to defund local police departments, stealing local control over law enforcement away from the American people, also have high regard for the federalization of law enforcement with the FBI. As with everything else the left and their allies love a centralized power, which they control, and the use of brute force on freedom-loving people.
The Daily Mail had a blistering rebuke of the left’s use of FBI authority on Americans that the corporate media has been ignoring in a recent Op-Ed by Tom Leonard.
“REVEALED: Brave whistleblowers are exposing how the nakedly political FBI IS out to get Trump – now read TOM LEONARD’s damning dossier on the chiefs who are plunging America’s once proud Bureau into its gravest crisis ever,” read the headline in the Daily Mail on Tuesday.
“Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity.
That’s the proud motto of the FBI and for decades, it’s an image that many people around the world have believed to be entirely deserved,” Leonard reported.
While Republican politicians won’t share too many specifics about the whistleblowers to protect their identity, Republican Senator Ron Johnson, Ranking Member on the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, told DailyMail.com that the allegations shared with Congress indicate a level of ‘corruption’ within the FBI and Department of Justice that needs to be ‘exposed.’
Johnson spokeswoman Alex Henning said: ‘We do have people of integrity that are concerned about the credibility of their agency and they’re coming forward.’
‘The only way to restore credibility to these agencies is if we expose the corruption and hold people accountable.’
Senator Chuck Grassley, Mr. Johnson’s opposite number on the Judiciary Committee, also says he has heard from several ‘highly-credible’ bureau whistleblowers alleging there was an attempt within the FBI to downplay or discredit negative information about Hunter Biden.
It was Sen. Grassley who – acting on whistleblower information – over the summer accused senior FBI agent Timothy Thibault of political partisanship both on social media and in his work, in particular sabotaging the continuing investigation into Hunter Biden’s business dealings.
‘The volume and consistency of these allegations substantiate their credibility and necessitate this letter,’ he bluntly told FBI Directory Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland in July.
The revelations about FBI political bias came as Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg, when asked whether his social media site had ‘censored’ the news about the Biden laptop, admitted the FBI – which had initially declined to take possession of the computer – had warned him about misinformation.
Both Facebook and Twitter initially banned sharing of the story. ‘It sucks,’ said Zuckerberg weakly of suppressing a story that some Republicans believe could have changed the election result.
The contents of that computer – abandoned at a repair shop in Delaware and first revealed by the New York Post in October 2020 – have thrown up endless embarrassment for the Bidens that would have been greatly amplified if most of the US media hadn’t conveniently chosen to ignore them.
Instead, the allegations – which included bombshell claims that Joe Biden was aware of his son’s suspect foreign business dealings and even put pressure on Ukrainian officials to sack a prosecutor investigating an energy company in which Hunter was involved – were widely dismissed as Kremlin disinformation.
Both Joe and Hunter Biden deny there was ever any conflict of interest. It took the self-regarding New York Times until spring 2022 to announce it had investigated the laptop story and concede it was substantially true.
Other Republicans see clear signs of the Biden administration using US intelligence to shield the president and his family, citing the recent appointment of ex-CIA and Pentagon official Jeremy Bash to the President’s Intelligence Advisory Board. Bash, helpfully, previously claimed the Hunter laptop smacked of a ‘Russian information operation’.
According to James Comer, the top Republican on the House Oversight and Reform Committee: ‘The Biden Administration has a pattern of using the power of the federal government to protect the Biden family and reward those who do their bidding.’
Donald Trump could certainly be accused of the same offenses, but – as voters may recall – wasn’t the great claim of the Biden presidency that things would be different now?
Kurt Siuzdak, a lawyer and former FBI agent who now represents whistleblowers at the bureau, said agents complain Wray has lost control of the agency and want him to resign.
These sources say that Wray is ineffectual and had failed to act on serious internal issues such as agents being forced or coerced into signing false affidavits and claims of sexual harassment and stalking.
More than a month after the August 8th FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s Palm Beach resort and residence, the smoking gun that many expected the bureau to produce to justify such an unprecedented action has yet to surface. Why did the Feds raid a former president’s home, ask Republicans, when they balked at ever doing the same to Hunter Biden.
Meanwhile, polls have shown only a very slim majority of Americans approved of the raid, suggesting that Republican leaders were not the only ones who considered it wholly inappropriate.
