Whistleblowers are being encouraged to speak out about the FBI’s politicized activities.
Donald Trump has openly invited federal agents to speak to members of Congress.
Now Merrick Garland just ordered the FBI to obstruct Congressional investigations with this edict.
Insiders are blowing the top off corruption in the intelligence agencies
Republicans have been shouting about FBI corruption over the last few years.
After Joe Biden was put in office, the true colors of the intelligence agencies started to shine.
Now it seems FBI agents who oppose the current regime are finally feeling inspired to speak out after the politicized Mar-a-Lago raid.
In an interview on Fox News, House Republican James Comer stated, “We’re meeting with dozens of whistleblowers from some of the top law enforcement agencies—not just the FBI but also Border Patrol. But one thing that’s apparent with these whistleblowers . . . they fear retaliation. It’s really sad when the whistleblowers from our law enforcement community fear being retaliated by this politicized Biden administration.”
According to Comer, the House Oversight Committee isn’t backing down.
He went on, “What we’ve done on the House Oversight Committee . . . we’ve also requested correspondence between Facebook and the FBI as well as between Facebook and the Democrat National Committee . . . we have pretty good information that would lead me to believe that the not only did the FBI communicate with Zuckerberg but also the DNC followed up with Zuckerberg after the FBI gave him that warning.”
Merrick Garland is trying to put a stop to it – fast
Now Attorney General Merrick Garland is making moves to squash any investigations before they begin.
He penned a memo warning the intelligence agencies against further cooperation.
His memo states, “No department employee may communicate with Senators, Representatives, congressional committees, or congressional staff without advance coordination, consultation, and approval by OLA [Office of Legislative Affairs].”
Meaning that the DOJ must sign off on any issues discussed with the legislative branch.
This is an unprecedented move by an Attorney General and could have wide reaching implications.
According to the memo this communication is, “designed to protect our criminal and civil law enforcement decisions, and our legal judgments, from partisan or other inappropriate influences, whether real or perceived, direct or indirect.”
The memo concludes that, “nothing in these policies ‘is intended to conflict with or limit whistleblower protections . . .’”
But it’s difficult to see how such a memo would do anything other than intimidate whistleblowers.
Republicans are standing up to Garland’s memo
No one should have expected the memo to go unopposed.
Former US Attorney Brett Tolman stated we should, “Be very, very wary of a government leader who tells its people they cannot talk to other outside government entities, especially those that exercise oversight. It’s one thing to say . . . that you cannot interact with legislators on bills . . . but its very different to be sending this shot out right now after they know that Senator Grassley and Jim Jordan in the House has been approached by whistleblowers . . . ”
While some spoke out against ethical challenges of the memo.
Others like Senator Tom Cotton challenged it on legal grounds.
Cotton posted on Twitter, “DOJ employees, take notice: No matter what this memo says, you are protected by federal law if you contact my office to blow the whistle on the improper politicization of the Department of Justice by Merrick Garland and Joe Biden.”
Garland may face backlash, but the damage is already done.
He’s put it out there, “you’re either with us, or against us.”
Now we can only hope that more agents are emboldened to step up.
