Alleged abuses from the FBI will be the focal point of an upcoming House Judiciary Committee hearing as three whistleblowers are scheduled to testify to claims of agency retaliation.
In what will be the fourth hearing conducted by the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) will be following up on reports that have proven beneficial for leftist talking points.
Just this past weekend, President Joe Biden called out the “most dangerous terrorist threat to our homeland” as “white supremacy.” Thursday, FBI Special Agent Garret O’Boyle, former Special Agent Steve Friend and Staff Operations Specialist Marcus Allen will testify on how that claim is built on erroneous data.
Previously, Jordan had detailed how whistleblower claims alleged, “‘the FBI has not followed regular procedure’ with respect to January 6 cases, which should all be officially led by the [Washington Field Office] 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.”
Whistleblowers also reportedly told the committee to focus on Jan. 6 investigations over child sex crimes because they were “no longer a priority”, according to the Daily Mail.

Earlier this year, Friend and O’Boyle had met with the Judiciary Committee behind closed doors where, according to an affidavit, the former further contended, “The manipulative casefile practice creates false and misleading crime statistics, constituting false official federal statements.”
“Instead of hundreds of investigations stemming from an isolated incident at the Capitol on January 6, 2021, FBI and DOJ officials point to significant increases in domestic violent extremism and terrorism around the United States,” the former special agent added.
Friend’s concerns were said to have led to the revocation of his security clearances in Sept. and the same occurred to O’Boyle after coming forward as a whistleblower.
Meanwhile, Allen will be testifying for the first time Thursday and is being represented by Judicial Watch in a lawsuit against FBI Director Christopher Wray who allegedly violated his constitutional rights “by falsely accusing him of holding ‘conspiratorial views,’ stripping his security clearance, and suspending him from duty without pay.”
A Jan. 10, 2022 letter sent to Allen from the FBI read in part, “The Security Division has learned you have espoused conspiratorial views both orally and in writing and promoted unreliable information which indicates support for the events of January 6th. These allegations raise sufficient concerns about your allegiance to the United States and your judgment to warrant a suspension of your clearance pending further investigation.”
The hearing follows the release of a 1,000-page report from House Republicans in November that further detailed the “politicized bureaucracy” within the FBI and the Department of Justice and was explained as primarily concerning “FBI abuses, due to the experiences and roles of whistleblowers, but also examines the actions of the Justice Department where appropriate for context and explanation.”

“The problem lies, for example, with the FBI hierarchy that spied on President Trump’s campaign and ridiculed conservative Americans,” the report read. “The problem lies with FBI bureaucrats who altered and mischaracterized evidence to federal courts, circumvented safeguards, and exploited weaknesses in policies governing investigations and informants to target politically disfavored subjects and to protect favored ones. The problem lies with the FBI structure that centralizes high-profile cases in D.C, in the hands of politicized actors with politicized incentives.”
Thursday’s hearing is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. and will include the president of Empower Oversight, Tristan Leavitt, who is also representing Allen in his suit.
