The concerns of a politicized FBI have only been growing as partisan and targeted application of the law has moved from subtly suspicious to blatant. Now a whistleblower has come forward asserting that the agency has violated procedures to “create a false and misleading narrative” about rising “domestic violent extremism.”
As ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) has been at the forefront of investigating suspected miscarriages of justice stemming from the FBI and, Monday, he issued a letter demanding answers from FBI Director Christopher Wray after a whistleblower made the case of “false and misleading crime statistics” being used to push a narrative of widespread extremism.
“They are juicing the numbers and cooking the books,” the congressman told Fox News host Tucker Carlson Monday as he broke down the charge leveled namely against the FBI’s Washington Field Office (WFO).

Jordan wrote in his letter to Wray: “The whistleblower alleged ‘the FBI has not followed regular procedure’ with respect to January 6 cases, which should all be officially led by the WFO and categorized as WFO cases, explaining: Instead, task force members in Washington D.C. identify ‘potential subjects’ and possible locations where these individuals reside. The task force disseminates information packets with instructions to open full investigations to [local] Field Offices around the country. As such, if a subject lives in Dallas, the Dallas Field Office is expected to open the case….”

As the host expressed on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” before bringing the lawmaker in, “This is so wrong. This should not be happening.”
“According to that whistleblower,” Carlson explained, “the FBI is breaking its own procedures to create the illusion that new domestic extremism cases are popping up all over the United States. In reality, virtually all of these cases are about Jan. 6, which was a nonviolent election justice protest and covered, of course, by the Constitution of the United States, excluding the people who committed vandalism. You have a right to assemble if you want.”
The whistleblower detailed, “The manipulative casefile practice creates a false and misleading crime statistics. Instead of hundreds of investigations stemming from a single, black swan incident at the Capitol, FBI and DOJ officials point to significant increases in domestic violent extremism and terrorism around the United States.”
“They are so focused on this they are willing to pull agents from child trafficking cases to foster this narrative,” Jordan stated as he referred to the whistleblower’s statement that Jan. 6 was given precedent that agents were “told that child sexual abuse material investigations were no longer an FBI priority and should be referred to local law enforcement agencies.”
“Such a posture,” Jordan wrote, “is not only a dereliction of the FBI’s mission to investigate violations of federal laws, but it is a grave disservice to the victims of child sexual abuse and other crimes that do not advance the FBI leadership’s political agenda.”
The Judiciary Committee member went on to remind Carlson about other brave whistleblowers who had come forward well before President Joe Biden’s divisive Independence Hall speech to show how the agency had sought to build the narrative that conservatism in and of itself was heavily linked to domestic extremism.
While the FBI claimed that they “do not investigate ideology, and [they] do not investigate particular cases based on the political views of the individuals involved,” the reality was the agency’s “Domestic Terrorism Symbols Guide” had been leaked to the public and included historical flags and symbols such as the Gadsden flag, Betsy Ross flag, Gonzales flag and the Liberty Tree as signs of potential “domestic terrorism.”

“Previous whistleblowers who came to us and said that they were pressured to label cases as domestic violent extremism,” Jordan stated. “This whistleblower came forward and talked to us about how they’re cooking the books, making the numbers seem that there are cases all over the country, when in fact they’re all related to Jan. 6. And now what’s happened, today we learned that this newest whistleblower has been suspended from his job.”
“Nothing should be off the table when it comes to reining in a political Justice Department, which everyone knows is now the case,” the congressman declared.
As it happens, WFO Assistant Special Agent in Charge Tim Thibault had already resigned from the agency after a whistleblower had named him as specifically being involved with ordering agents to reclassify cases, including with regards to the investigation of Hunter Biden and the infamous laptop from hell.
Jordan has requested all documents and communications from the WFO regarding policies and procedures on Jan. 6 investigations as well as an account of all domestic violent extremism cases opened since Jan. 6 with an expectation that the information be provided no later than Oct. 3.
