FBI Corruption On Display

By Gary Bauer – May 18, 2023

The House Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government heard critically important testimony from multiple FBI whistleblowers today. These men are heroes and patriots.

They are decorated veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. They served in local law enforcement. They prosecuted child sex crimes, and protected us from terrorists. They received numerous awards from the FBI, even the “Employee of the Year” award.

But for having the courage to report clear abuses and the politicization of the agency to their superiors, they were all severely punished.

They were suspended without pay. Their security clearances were revoked. The Bureau is even preventing these men from obtaining outside employment. The Biden Administration is destroying their families financially, and ruining their lives.

They are making examples out of them to intimidate other agents and potential whistleblowers into silence.

One of the most egregious abuses that the whistleblowers exposed is how the FBI, under pressure from the Biden White House, was inflating domestic terrorism cases. Consider this example:

  • Two buses with 140 people traveled from the Boston area to Washington, D.C., to participate in legally protected rallies on January 6th.
  • But because two people from that group later entered the Capitol Building, the FBI’s Washington Field office ordered the FBI’s Boston office to launch domestic terrorism investigations on all of the remaining 138 people.
  • Thus, two cases of “domestic terrorism” suddenly turned into 140 cases.

This “process” was repeated by other FBI field office, so that one event in Washington, D.C., on January 6th, suddenly turned into hundreds of “domestic terrorism” investigations all over the country.

This intentional distortion of statistics to support Biden’s lies and demagoguery about “right-wing extremism,” “ultra-MAGA semi-fascism,” Christian nationalism” or whatever else he’s peddling is beyond disgusting. It’s sickening propaganda that would make Stalin or Goebbels blush!

Of course, the “lamestream” media will likely ignore this testimony, proving yet again that we do not have a free and independent press. Our media is little more than the state propaganda arm of the Biden/Harris regime.

The Real Threat

I have made this point before, but it bears repeating again: The real threat to democracy and to our constitutional Republic is not a few yahoos trespassing in Nancy Pelosi’s office or the business of Congress being delayed a few hours.

Don’t misunderstand me: What happened inside the Capitol Building on January 6th was terrible. It never should have happened. And anyone who assaulted a police officer and destroyed public property should be prosecuted.

But that’s nothing compared to what the American people suffered through during the riots of 2020.

Dozens of Americans were killed. Businesses and livelihoods were destroyed. Courthouses and churches were firebombed. Police stations were burned to the ground. The White House was attacked and scores of Secret Service agents were injured.

The left celebrated that violence. The media called it “mostly peaceful.”

No, the real threat to our Republic is the corruption of federal law enforcement and the arrogant abuse of power that House Republicans are now exposing.

It’s a Deep State that thinks it gets to decide what truth is and who our leaders are.

America can survive riots. But we cannot survive corruption that undermines the rule of law, shreds our Constitution, makes a mockery of our elections and turns the “land of the free” into a police state.

Writing in the Wall Street Journal, retired FBI Special Agent Thomas Baker warns that the Durham report exposed “a cultural rot, not merely the work of a few bad apples.”

He’s absolutely right. And we must get this right. America is at a tipping point.

Whether this nation survives as a “shining city upon a hill” or goes the way of Sodom and Gomorrah will likely be decided over the course of the next 18 months.
