Since the controversial FBI raid on former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate, numerous whistleblowers within the FBI have come forward.

Republican Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan said an alarming number, 14 whistleblowers, quickly came forward with concerns about the Department of Justice’s alleged political bias. “Fourteen FBI agents have come to our office as whistleblowers, and they are good people. There are lots of good people in the FBI. It’s the top that is the problem,” Jordan told Fox News.

“Some of these good agents are coming to us, telling us … what’s going on… the political nature now of the Justice Department,” he added. Just The News reports on completely separate sets of whistleblowers that came forward before the raid, also alleging political bias within the DOJ and FBI:

One contingent alleged that Washington Field Office Assistant Special Agent in Charge Timothy Thibault showed political bias in his handling of investigations by withholding the partisan nature of evidence against Trump to convince his superiors to approve an investigation. He further allegedly worked to falsely discredit evidence against President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden.

A second group asserted that former Assistant Director of the FBI Counterterrorism Division and Executive Assistant Director of the National Security Branch Jill Sanborn pressured her subordinates to reclassify cases as “domestic violent extremism” (DVEs) to provide statistical support to the Biden administration’s narrative that the issue presented the “greatest threat” to the United States.

“The are dark times for our Nation, as my beautiful home, Mar-a-Lago, in Palm Beach, Florida, is currently under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents,” Trump said in a statement after the raid. “Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before.”

“I’ve seen enough,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy wrote on Truth Social. “The Department of Justice has reached an intolerable state of weaponized politicization. When Republicans take back the House, we will conduct immediate oversight of this department, follow the facts, and leave no stone unturned. Attorney General Garland, preserve your documents and clear your calendar.”

“If I’m in the majority, and I’m chairman of the Judiciary Committee, again, I intend to pursue all of these things until we get to the bottom of it,” Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley said Saturday.

Officers were seen wearing uniforms identifying them as bomb techs and with K-9 units. DC Fire and EMS also confirmed to Fox News they had units on the scene to assist law enforcement while they conducted an investigation.
