Kirsters Baish| After recent reports, we are left with the information that multiple FBI agents and officials would like to come forward to talk about the conduct of former FBI Director James Comey and FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, as well as the way they ran the bureau. Apparently, there is more to the story, and there are still individuals in the FBI displaying some questionable behavior. The problem is that these agents are afraid to come forward, because they fear that the bureau will retaliate in a big way.
The Daily Caller reports that a new Rasmussen poll showed some interesting results, with the majority of those polled believing that senior law enforcement officials illegally tried to stop Donald Trump from winning in the 2016 presidential election. Despite the poll results, FBI agents wanting to testify against their corrupt superiors in front of Congress are afraid to, all because of an useless whistleblower protection laws. They are concerned that the law puts them at a large risk of retaliation. Because of this, they have not come forward to share the truth.
The report is base off of FBI interview transcripts that took place between two agents. The report was brought to the Daily Caller by a former White House official. Another special agent reached out to the news outlet in order to give them information on what is currently going on within the FBI today.
The Daily Caller reports:
The former White House official who maintained direct contact with at least two agents told TheDC they are “hunkering down because they see good people being thrown to the dogs for speaking out and speaking out does nothing to solve the problems.” He believes that “Congress and DOJ are so weak and clueless and can’t be trusted to follow through.”
One special agent seemed to indicate that he didn’t think these people were concerned about Congressional oversight at all.
He stated, “The inmates have been running the asylum and they don’t respect, much less fear, their overseers. We know we’ll be hung out to dry.”
The agent went on, “And don’t get me wrong, there are still a few good people scattered about, but main Justice and the bureaucrats are running the show, want to run out the clock on this administration, and keep the status quo.”
Another agent who came forward explained that the senior officials who are retiring are the ones in charge. He explained if he were to come forward “it would be suicide.”
He went on, “You still have a ton of bad people in place. Unless that changes, and I haven’t seen any degree of seriousness on the part of ranking members nor staffers, I’m not meeting with anyone nor willing to be subpoenaed. I’m not coming forward until they get their act together. Right now, it’d be sacrificing a career for cheap political points.”
The Daily Caller has also found out that the FBI has warned their agents ahead of time that the agency will retaliate against anyone who is “behind destroying their narrative, and will go after their families and friends, too.”
Diamond and Silk reported that The DC wrote:
Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley is trying to get them to come forward, saying that he built in protections to the Whistleblower Act.
But agents fear retaliation by the bureau. One agent who came forward in 2013, told the Daily Caller that he experienced “personal humiliation, stress-related illnesses, and a huge financial loss, requiring my wife (who had undergone two cancer surgeries) to go to work so we could make ends meet.”
And they also believe nothing will happen with investigating retaliation, which one agent said was “slow by design and at the end of the process they will never be held accountable.”
“They leave you penniless, unemployed, and unemployable. Those who work those issues in the government who are aware of the score recognize the roadkill they will become if they come forward,” one former Department of Defense official told TheDC.
