Chris Wray, FBI director and jack-booted thug
Blacklists are back and the Democrats have got ’em: According to numerous whistleblowers talking to the office of Congressman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), the FBI has been aggressively blacklisting any employee who happens to express any conservative opinions at all.
Jordan detailed the most recent actions in a June 7th letter [pdf] to Chris Wray, director of the FBI, which was also a follow-up on another such letter sent in May.
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.1 To date, you have failed to acknowledge our letter or begin to arrange for the requested briefing. Since our May 6 letter, we have received new protected whistleblower disclosures that suggest the FBI’s actions are far more pervasive than previously known. Multiple whistleblowers have called it a “purge” of FBI employees holding conservative views. [emphasis mine]
The earlier May 6th letter [pdf] was even more blunt:
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.
According to Jordan, at least six FBI agents have come forward as whistleblowers, with two describing FBI blacklisting in connection with statements made by agents to a local school board. The other four agents were either suspended or had their security clearance removed because they raised questions about the Democrats’ narrative concerning the January 6, 2021 protests.
In every case, it appears the agents broke no laws and violated no federal policy. Though agents — like all federal employees — are not allowed to participate in partisan politics, such as campaigning for specific candidates, they are not forbidden from publicly expressing their first amendment rights, including attending demonstrations.
Apparently, the management of the FBI under Wray, in league with the Democrats running the Biden administration, have decided that conservative agents should not have these rights, and are acting to punish any that dare exercise them.
None of this should be a surprise. The Democrats have made it clear now for more than a decade that they do not believe in the Bill of Rights or the First Amendment. They have even moved to repeal large portions of both. Now that they control the executive branch, they have been moving to either eliminate those rights, as fast as possible, for anyone in government who has the courage to challenge their positions. And if that doesn’t work, to purge the government of such dissenters, so there will be no one left to challenge the illegal abuses of power by these Democrats.
