FBI punishing employees who attended Jan 6 rally by revoking security clearances

United States Congress

The official Twitter account of the GOP House Judiciary Committee released an alarming warning: “Whistleblowers alert that the FBI appears to be attempting to terminate the employment of employees who were engaged in protected First Amendment activity on January 6, 2021.”

A letter from ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH), to FBI Director Christopher Wray, addresses how several whistleblowers exposed the FBI of stripping employees of security clearances.

The letter cites claims of multiple whistleblowers who say the FBI has been purposely punishing those who attended then-president Donald Trump’s “Stop the Steal” rally on January 6, 2021, by revoking their clearances. Reportedly many of them did not even enter the U.S. Capitol.

“While FBI employees may not participate in partisan political campaigns, [they] do not give up their rights to engage in political speech activity,” wrote Jordan. “We have serious concerns that the FBI appears to be retaliating against employees for engaging in political speech disfavored by FBI leadership,” he added.

The primary whistleblower is described as a 20-year veteran of the FBI and U.S. military. Jordan believes the FBI’s actions could potentially result in the administrative extermination of the individuals’ employment because the FBI requires top-secret security clearances for majority of its employees.

Jordan has required that the FBI brief the committee on the security clearances matter by May 20.

    If these clowns are so concerned about stripping security clearances, then they should start with the 51 liars that sent that letter out attesting to H Biden’s laptop as being
    ” Russian disinformation ” , without one speck of evidence.

    Any agent retaliated against by the bureau elites, should unite with their colleagues and file a class action law suite against the bureau. Bring the entire affair into public view. Retaliating against agents who were at the capital unofficially on Jan 6th would lead a reasonable person to conclude the FBI knew something “bad’ (staged) was going to happen and didn’t want any agents other than those assigned to participate in the event on scene. I suspect the agents who showed up on their day off to attend a Presidential speech and see how well attended the event would be, have spoken out about what they witnessed. Perhaps their narrative contradicts the official narrative? Did they witness misconduct by agents on duty and assigned at the Capital officially that day? Sunshine is the best disinfectant, and we surely need a healthy airing of what actually happened on January 6th in Washington. The public trust in the FBI and government at large is ruptured; it is gone, and may be permanent.. It must be repaired. Trust in government is the bedrock of our constitutional republic. Our society cannot function without it. The FBI is entrusted with the two most important authorities for a free society. First, they can deprive you of your liberty. Second, they are armed and can take your life with the authority of the State. Does Director Wray grasp the stakes at play here? Christopher Wray should be working tirelessly and openly to restore that public trust.

    The FBI takeover by Socialist-Communists will be complete if they are allowed to successfully eliminate all non-Democrat Agents.
    The Current FBI’s #1 job is to take over The United States of America and control everyone in it.
    imho – We are in Civil War II

    So much information about the FBI is telling me that it’s probably best to abolish the entire agency. It’s way beyond the top management and now the rank and file can’t be trusted to be non-political.

    keep those loony, angry scientific illiterate mob rule no respect quasi fascists away from taking over the capital guided my a narcistic liar with no evidence about losing an election fomenting a riot. If it was BLM ? Well, you know hypocrisy is the greatest luxury.

    Only an idiot like Sean Hannity could pretend that only few among FBI’s leadership were corrupt to the point of being accomplices in the russia-hoax-coup. In reality there are only few among the 10K “secret agents” who are not corrupt to the bone… the whistle-blowers and the victims of the epuration. And as usual lame Jim Jordan is asking lame questions when it is already too late. Why didn’t he question Trump’s choice of Christopher Wray? Why didn’t Trump request a purge of the FBI in 2017? The FBI is as corrupt as the rest of US institutions because the americans are corrupt! Stop looking for Turks heads and scapegoats… look at your family, close friends, pub pals… take a look in the mirror… There is corruption everywhere in bigoted, hypocrite “America”… For without it there wouldn’t be “America”. Corruption is intrinsic to the fonctioning of the US!

Information emerges on ‘conspiracy-minded former Democratic campaign staffer’ who lit himself on fire outside Trump trial

As the jury selection for former President Donald Trump’s hush-money trial was being finalized, Max Azzarello set himself on fire Friday afternoon outside the Manhattan courthouse. The event was caught on video by multiple media outlets, and police officers can be seen in the videos dousing Azzarello’s body with a fire extinguisher.

National Review reports on the bizarre occurrence:

Azzarello appears to be a conspiracy-minded former Democratic campaign staffer and operations manager who threw pamphlets into the air before self-immolating that directed bystanders to his Substack blog, “The Ponzi Papers.” Azzarello writes on his Substack of a supposed “totalitarian con” and identifies himself as the man who set himself on fire outside of the Trump courthouse.

Azzarello warns of what he believes to be cryptocurrency ponzi scheme being manipulated by economic elites, most notably tech billionaire Peter Thiel. He claims the government is a “secret kleptocracy” full of financial criminals and highlights The Simpsons as a tool supposedly used by elites to brainwash the American people.

His LinkedIn page features a picture of himself with former president Bill Clinton, a subject of his conspiracy theories, and lists his various marketing and operations positions in politics and tech.
