Democrat members of the House Select Subcommittee on Weaponization of the Federal Government attacked three FBI whistleblowers during a hearing.
Two of the whistleblowers, FBI Special Agent Garret O’Boyle and FBI Staff Operations Specialist Marcus Allen, are currently suspended from the FBI and the third witness Steve Friend is a former FBI Special Agent.
The witnesses at the hearing described how the FBI engaged in a retaliation campaign against them for exposing misconduct at the FBI.
O’Boyle said the FBI “…blocked him for six weeks from getting his family’s personal property back,” after the bureau had him move from Kansas to Virginia.
Representative Linda Sanchez (D-CA) questioned Marcus Allen about a Tweet that used his name but the account wasn’t his. Undeterred, Sanchez asked him anyway about the Tweet.

It turned out to not be his account but she asks him if he agrees with the tweet anyway. pic.twitter.com/ZrjsrM2Kty

During the hearing, in addition to attacking the witnesses, Democrats disrupted the hearing.
Wyoming Republican Representative Harriet Hageman discussed the behavior of the Democrats on American Agenda on Newsmax TV.
Hageman said the Democrats were acting that way to “deflect attention” from the FBI witnesses.
The Democrat propaganda media rallied to support the FBI as explained by Michael Shellenberger on Twitter.
Media coverage of these FBI whistleblowers has been appallingly one-sided. They take the word of FBI as gospel. This isn't "news reporting". This is state propaganda. pic.twitter.com/3cXG6gJ1zN

In typical fashion, a MSNBC commentator defended the FBI and Democrats at the hearing.

The House hearing followed the release of special counsel John Durham’s report on the FBI investigation of the Trump 2016 campaign and Russia. Durham found “…the FBI should never have launched a full investigation into connections between Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia during the 2016 election.”
Finally, it was just disclosed that the FBI inappropriately spied on nearly 300,000 Americans.

It’s clear the FBI is politically weaponized and this represents a serious threat to our liberty and our system of government. Despite this threat, Democrats and the propaganda media are willfully ignoring the dangers posed by the actions of the FBI because power is more important than the people.
