Former Agents up Attacks Against FBI

As Republicans are poised to take over the U.S. House of Representatives, leaders within the party, as well as other conservative leaders and former agents, have intensified their allegations against the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for perceived bias against conservatives inside the agency and across the country.

Earlier this month, a group of FBI agents who have been placed on administrative leave and collectively call themselves “the Suspendables” sent a letter to current director Christopher Wray outlining 45 questions on a range of topics.

Among the topics covered by these suspended agents are the alleged mistreatment and retaliation against FBI whistleblowers, alleged discrimination against “unvaccinated conservative/Christian men” within the agency, sexual misconduct and coverups by senior FBI officials, the events of January 6, the perceived failure to properly investigate visitors to Jeffrey Epstein’s private island, and much more.

Many of these questions, and their implications, echo the charges in the Republican members of the U.S. House Judiciary Committee’s 1,000-page report released in November.

“Why have so many whistleblowers spoken out in recent months?” the letter asks Wray. “Is this an indication that the rank-and-file agents are unhappy with your leadership?”

The suspended agents also directly asked if the FBI intended to respond to any of the letters sent by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) of the House Judiciary Committee or Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) of the Senate Judiciary Committee, the ranking Republican members of the respective committees.

The Dallas Express has previously reported on the letters and accusations levied by Jordan and Grassley against the FBI.

Criticism of the FBI from Republicans began in earnest during the botched handling of the Hunter Biden laptop investigation in 2018 by the federal law enforcement agency. Since then, antagonism between the party and conservative leaders has only escalated.

More recent events, such as the August 2022 FBI raid on former president Trump’s private residence and new revelations that the FBI engaged in the censorship of political speech on social media platforms, have only intensified the conflict.

In their letter, the suspended agents called out some current agents by name, such as former Miami Special Agent in Charge George Piro. They ask why Piro was demoted and retired weeks before the raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence and whether he was the senior FBI official caught engaged in sexual acts with a subordinate.

Piro pushed back in a recent interview, declaring, “These claims are absolutely false. I dedicated my life to the country and the FBI. I am disappointed that former agents would spread lies about me.”

He went on to say, “I am saddened by their behavior and their total disregard for those who are working for the FBI, and those who came before them to make the FBI the premier law enforcement agency in the world.”

In January, Jordan is poised to chair the House Judiciary Committee, which oversees the Department of Justice and FBI. Congressional investigations are thus almost certain.

A recent nationwide poll revealed that the public overwhelmingly supports such investigations and strongly believes the FBI encouraged censorship of political speech on social media platforms.

After the results of the national election in November, Jordan sent a flurry of correspondence to the FBI renewing previous calls for information and documents and hinting at the scope of future investigations.

Every government entity is corrupt in the USA.

Of course, we ourselves have been corrupted to one degree or another. The misuse of generalizations is where the trouble begins. To what degree is there corruption? Are we conflating corruption with decent or difference of opinion?

Actually, it is the members of the government that have held elected and appointed positions for over 15 years that is the main aspect that has caused a plethora of the issues.
These members have forgotten what it is to be citizens and thus have turned our Constitutional Republic into a dominated aristocracy.
When government entities are the only people allowed to represent citizens in government, you wind up with a government that represents government without regard for the citizens that elected those government entities.

But the FBI wasn’t really that corrupt were they, you know, before almost 1000 individuals were charged with criminal activities related to J6?

Attacks? Of course, we are all concerned about the BIG Liar going to the BIG house for unauthorized possession of national defense information and illegally concealing or destroying official U.S. documents; however, a cutesy letter sent by squad of misfits to FBI leadership (and Twitter) seems little more than a childish act of desperation, and a good time to find a new job.

I WANT TO THANK THE FBI FOR YOUR WORK HERE IN OKLAHOMA TAKING DOWN ALL THE ILLEGAL MARIJUANA FARMS THAT ARE TRAFFICKING ACROSS AMERICA, I AM A WHISTLE BLOWER THAT TURNED IN THE ATTORNEYS AND THE PERSON THAT REPORTED THE DRILLING MUD SPILL IN THE OHIO RIVER. MY EX-HUSBAND DAN WILLIAMS WAS AN INSPECTOR HE WAS RECEIVING CALLS DIRECTLY FROM DONALD TRUMPS OFFICE TO THINGS THAT WERE AGAINST ALL RULES AND REGULATIONS. THIS FAILURE TO FOLLOW RULES AND REGULATIONS PLAYED A MAJOR ROLE IN THE SPILL AND OTHER UNLAWFUL PRACTICES.

To think, there was a time when most of the media would ask questions about these allegations…..now we have a virtual Tass/Pravda relationship between the government and the “press”.

Expect less from a government that has ensured ownership, vested, and invested interests between media entities and political ones?
The conglomeration of media into a handful of corporate monopolies has allowed for political entities to own a large portion of media by investing in a small number of corporations ensuring less questions of their investing interests.

This is a sensitive and highly controversial subject. And I think Duty and care and the lack of trust within the boundaries of our parallels andaintainong a trust within those boundaries and when people reach out to the government and made to feel like. Ones own perceptions didn’t matter is quite discouraging. And it seems like everyone is divided and communication. Is failing.

Let’s not forget about Benghazi, the server Hillary kept at her residence, all the money they got for the Clinton foundation as she was using her Sec State position to sale access as she was projecting she would be the next President. The selling of our uranium to Russia. Wasn’t it Comey who cleared Hillary for the server and destruction of evidence?

And who has the Trumpster sold classified documents to? Russia, if you are listening, the National Archives would love it if you can find the missing classified documents stolen from the American people by a twice impeached, coup mastermind, former President. I am sure they are more valuable than the 30 pieces of Silver he probably received for them.

Let the investigations proceed as led by Jim Jordan. Were there improprieties at the FBI and Justice Dept? Testimonies thus far have been evasive and vague. This must not become retaliatory but rather a search for truths. Spectacles for TV aren’t necessary.

They always get evasive and vague when you have to swear to tell the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Of course when you have someone guarantee you a pardon for lying, that is what they do.

“I will be nominating Christopher A. Wray, a man of impeccable credentials, to be the new Director of the FBI. Details to follow,” Trump tweeted in 2017, after he fired James Comey.

This should be no surprise, while trump may have been somewhat of a irritant at times, he was in the process of cleaning house and everyone was fearful of the disclosure. Clearly evidenced by all the actions taken against this man. They will continue until they are confident he is completely out of the picture.

Just like Nancy and the rest of our political hacks who use their office to gain wealth instead of truly working hard for our Country. I believe term limits are ecensial if we want a better leadership from Congress.
