Here’s what a press release for the letter states:
“In one such example, the FBI targeted and suspended the security clearance of a retired war servicemember who had disclosed personal views that the FBI was not being entirely forthcoming about the events of January 6. The FBI questioned the whistleblower’s allegiance to the United States despite the fact that the whistleblower honorably served in the United States military for several years — including deployments in Kuwait and Iraq — valiantly earning multiple military commendation medals.”
“In addition, another whistleblower, who has since left the FBI, has informed us that faced retaliation for criticizing the FBI in an anonymous survey circulated by the [REDACTED] to employees following January 6. The FBI allegedly escalated an adverse personnel action against this employee after [REDACTED] commented on the survey, which sought feedback about the [REDACTED] actions ‘during the recent crisis/command post’ event. The employee, too, was never disciplined or reprimanded until after [REDACTED] criticized the FBI,” the letter reads.
The identities of the former officials are redacted from the letter, but Jordan highlighted that “whistleblowers have termed it a ‘purge’ of FBI workers expressing conservative views,” and that “we will not allow any effort to retaliate against whistleblowers for their revelations.”
Here’s what Jordan wrote to Wray on Tuesday:
“We continue to investigate allegations that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is retaliating against FBI employees for engaging in disfavored political speech,”
“On May 6, 2022, we sent you a letter that detailed examples of the FBI suspending the security clearances of FBI employees for their participation in protected First Amendment activity. To date, you have failed to acknowledge our letter or begin to arrange for the requested briefing.”
“[I]t is extremely concerning that the FBI would seek to suspend the security clearances of these employees and begin the process to potentially terminate their employment altogether,” Jordan said.
“Even more insulting is that the FBI would openly question the patriotism of long-time FBI employees, including at least one veteran, because they exercised their First Amendment rights on their personal time without breaking any laws.” He continued.
Based on recent weeks’ exposé and will all the evidence, it seems that the FBI is to be something other than a neutral law enforcement agency. Rather, it seems like America’s Stasi, like a tool of the leftist agenda.
