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.

BREAKING: Justice Roberts Confirms Draft of Supreme Court Ruling Leaked
In a statement released on Tuesday morning, Chief Justice John Roberts confirmed the authenticity of a draft majority opinion in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization that would overturn the precedents set in Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey. The draft was published by Politico on Monday night.
Is nothing sacred anymore? An alleged draft of a Supreme Court ruling on the famous and controversial Roe v. Wade decision appears to have been leaked and published by POLITICO.
Releasing the document in a controversial manner of its own, POLITICO titled the piece, “Supreme Court has voted to overturn abortion rights, draft opinion shows.” As the Associated Press reports, “Court that rarely leaks does so now in biggest case in years.”
The AP writes “Lawyers and others who watch the court closely were shocked. Neal Katyal, who has argued dozens of cases before the court and as a young lawyer worked for Justice Stephen Breyer, compared the apparent leak to The New York Times’ 1971 publication of the government’s secret history of the Vietnam War, known as the Pentagon Papers.”
“This is the equivalent of the pentagon papers leak, but at the Supreme Court. I’m pretty sure there has never ever been such a leak. And certainly not in the years I’ve been following the Supreme Court,” Katyal wrote on Twitter.
The draft published by POLITICO, appears to be a first draft of the court’s opinion delivered by Justice Samuel Alito. The opinion states: “We hold that Roe and Casey must be overruled…“=It is time to heed the Constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people’s elected representatives.”
“Roe was egregiously wrong from the start. Its reasoning was exceptionally weak, and the decision has had damaging consequences. And far from bringing about a national settlement of the abortion issue, Roe and Casey have enflamed debate and deepened division” the opinion continues.
The draft states the discussion of abortion is not discussed within the U.S. Constitution and therefore the “issue of abortion” should be returned “to the people’s elected representatives.” It reads: “Procuring an abortion is not a fundamental constitutional right because such a right has no basis in the Constitution’s text or in our Nation’s history.”
Returning legislative powers back to the state level has liberals losing their minds. Many have speculated as to the reason that the draft was leaked. For one, to enrage and rally the left just before the midterm elections. Another possibility is so that conservative justices could be bullied and/or publicly pressured into changing their opinion. Nonetheless, the perpetrator is disgusting.
