Under Joe Biden, the FBI has retaliated forcefully against brave whistleblowers who have been speaking out about corruption and political abuse at the nation’s top law enforcement agency.
The latest whistleblower to step forward has alleged that hundreds of agents resigned or retired while facing disciplinary action for sexual misconduct, the Hill reported.
FBI failed to penalize sexual harassment
The whistleblower shared a report from an unclassified internal review with Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Ia.), showing that 665 agents, including 45 senior agents, quit or retired before receiving a final disciplinary letter between 2004 and December 2020.
The report, titled “Retirements and Resignations During Unwelcome Sexual Conduct Adjudications,” was prompted by an Associated Press investigation into the FBI’s handling of sexual misconduct, the whistleblower said.
The numbers do not include agents who may have retired or resigned during an investigation or before an investigation began, Grassley said.
“The allegations and records paint a disgraceful picture of abuse that women within the FBI have had to live with for many years,” Grassley said in a letter to FBI director Christopher Wray and attorney general Merrick Garland.
“This abuse and misconduct is outrageous and beyond unacceptable.”
Corruption runs rampant
The FBI issued a statement saying they “cannot legally stop someone from resigning or retiring.”
“It is infuriating that we are left with little disciplinary recourse when people leave before their case is adjudicated,” the agency said.
A second document that Grassley received alleged that supervisors accused of misconduct are being held to a different standard than rank-and-file employees who “have a statistically greater likelihood of being dismissed for their sexual misconduct.”
If the FBI doesn’t hold all its employees to the same rules, Grassley asked, “how can they be trusted to apply the law equally against the American people?”
FBI whistleblowers have also exposed the agency’s role in censoring the Hunter Biden laptop and intimidating Joe Biden’s political enemies. How can Americans believe in the “rule of law” under these circumstances?
