BLM Molotov Bomb Throwers get less than 15 months in prison (Jan. 26, 2023)
– An unapologetic bomber told reporters later, “The only way they hear us is through violence.”

Found guilty in January this year on eight counts, including felony charges of civil disorder and obstruction of an official proceeding, a federal judge sentenced Richard “Bigo” Barnett to four and half years in prison after prosecutors requested he’d be given more than seven years followed by three years of supervised release.

J6 Rioters Did NOT Kill anyone

Fair Trials Are Impossible for January 6 Defendants (Sept. 24, 2022)

Judges on the D.C. District Court have denied every change of venue motion, absurdly insisting residents of a city that voted 93 percent for Joe Biden in 2020 can be fair and impartial. Further, judges claim nonstop news coverage in addition to the televised performances of the January 6 select committee do not further taint a demonstrably tainted jury pool.

– “NYPD data reviewed … shows 118 arrests were made in the Bronx during the worst of the looting in early June….the NYPD says the Bronx DA and the courts have dismissed most of those cases – 73 in all. Eighteen cases remain open and there have been 19 convictions for mostly lesser counts like trespassing, counts which carry no jail time.”
– “In Manhattan, the NYPD data shows there were 485 arrests. Of those cases, 222 were later dropped and 73 seeing convictions for lesser counts like trespassing, which carries no jail time. Another 40 cases involved juveniles and were sent to family court; 128 cases remain open. ”

May 26-June 8, 2020 20 states across U.S. $1-2b


Per NPR: (March 25, 2023)

The investigation has been a massive undertaking, both in its scope and cost. Every U.S. Attorney’s office has been involved, as well as every FBI field office. As part of the $1.7 trillion government spending package passed in December, $2.6 billion was allocated to the U.S. Attorneys, in part to support the Jan. 6 prosecutions.


The Biden Justice Department’s Shameful Pandering to Bomb-Throwing Rioters: (June 7, 2022)

The foundational duty of government is to maintain public safety and order, without which neither liberty nor prosperity is possible. The dramatic story of the summer of 2020 was the outbreak of riots and protests following the murder of George Floyd. More than a dozen people were killed and a billion or more dollars in damages were caused, including the destruction of many businesses. This cried out for a vigorous response.

Instead, apparently viewing the cause as a righteous one, Democratic prosecutors at the federal, state, and local levels have been scandalously soft on the many crimes committed in the course of those riots and protests. Large numbers of offenders were let off scot-free by progressive prosecutors; even those whose crimes caused death have been given sentences no longer than ten years. In so doing, the progressive district attorneys and the Justice Department have imperiled public safety in our cities and undermined public confidence in the even-handed administration of law. It is unsurprising that urban crime and violence have spiked in many cities after the law failed to restore order or punish criminality.

“They’re going to do the exact same thing to President Trump,” Rhodes told the outlet. “That’s my prediction. They’re going to prosecute Trump.”
Rhodes said that if the Justice Department prosecutes Trump, “of course, a D.C. jury will find him guilty. … What kind of fair trial are you going to get in a politically charged environment like Washington, D.C.?”

FBI Warrantless Searches: Jan 6 (23,500+) vs. BLM/Antifa Riots (789) per FISA Court Judge

Posted by FactReal on May 24, 2023

A court document from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) that was unsealed last Friday shows the FBI conducted searches without warrants over 278,000 times.

Among those targeted: January 6th, BLM/Antifa rioters, political donors, homicide victims.

Interesting: According to the document written by a FISA judge, the FBI run over 23,500 warrantless queries of Jan. 6 suspects while only 789 queries for BLM/Antifa rioters.

FBI warrantless queries: Jan. 6 vs. BLM/Antifa and others
The court document lists these FBI queries misusing the FISA Section 702 database:

  • 23,500+ queries for the January 6 Capitol breach (23,132+13*+2+260+5+1+2)
  • 789 queries for Antifa/BLM riots of 2020 (133 + 656)
  • 19,000 queries for a political candidate
  • ?? for police homicide reports

(* “The analyst said she ran the queries to determine whether these individuals had foreign ties, and indicated she had run “thousands of names within FBI systems in relation to the Capitol breach investigation”” [Page 28])

“An April 2022 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) opinion described these abuses, noting that the employee who ran the queries after Jan. 6 did so “to find evidence of possible foreign influence, although the analyst conducting the queries had no indications of foreign influence related to the query term used,” reported Daily Caller.

The FBI was able to do this by misusing the Foreign Intelligence Service Act (FISA) Section 702, a powerful surveillance tool. The FISA court oversees Section 702. (See explainer below)


Court opinion written by Judge Rudolph Contreras, Presiding Judge, U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC)
Doc: FISC Memorandum Opinion and Order, April 21, 2022
PDF via Washington Post (Archive)
Dated: April 21, 2022
Unsealed: May 19, 2023 per WaPo

DETAILS OF FBI WARRANTLESS QUERIES [Emphasis and page numbers added]
“Based on OIA’s audit and NSD’s follow-on-examination, the government reported in excess of 278,000 non-compliant FBI queries of raw FISA-acquired information.” [Page 31]
[OIA = FBI’s Office of Internal Auditing. NSD = National Security Division – Dept. of Justice]

[REDACTED] conducted three batch queries consisting of approximately 23,132 separate queries, using presumed U.S.-person query terms provided by [REDACTED] that [REDACTED] was being used by a group involved in the January 6 Capitol breach. The queries were run against unminimized Section 702 information to find evidence of possible foreign influence, although the analyst conducting the queries had no indications of foreign influence related to the query terms used. NSD assessed there was no specific factual basis to believe the queries were reasonably likely to retrieve foreign intelligence information or evidence of crime from Section 702 information. [Page 29]

An analyst [REDACTED] ran 13 queries of individuals suspected of involvement in the January 6, 2021 Capitol breach. The analyst said she ran the queries to determine whether these individuals had foreign ties, and indicated she had run “thousands of names within FBI systems in relation to the Capitol breach investigation” and did not remember why she ran these 13 queries on raw FISA information. NSD concluded the queries were not reasonably likely to retrieve foreign intelligence information or evidence of crime. [Page 28]

[REDACTED] officer ran two queries for a person under investigation for assaulting a federal officer in connection with the Capitol breach. The officer could not recall why he queried raw FISA information…NSD assessed that these queries were not reasonably likely to retrieve foreign intelligence information or evidence of crime. [Page 28]

[REDACTED] conducted 360 queries in connection with domestic drug and gang investigations, domestic terrorism investigations, and the Capitol breach. [REDACTED] provided no information to support a reasonable basis to believe foreign intelligence information or evidence of a crime would likely be returned. NSD assessed the queries did not meet the querying standard. [Page 29]

[REDACTED] ran five queries of individuals involved in the Capitol breach after being instructed to provide a “full workup on terms related to Capitol Breach leads to verify whether individuals involved… were acting at the direction of a foreign power or a member of a foreign terrorist organization. (…) NSD assessed that the queries were not reasonably likely to retrieve foreign intelligence information or evidence of a crime from FISA information. [Page 29]

More Jan. 6 queries:

[T]he government has recently reported violations of Section 702(f)(2), which also relate to the January 6 breach of the Capitol. Specifically:
“On June 11, 2021, the FBI queried unminimized Section 702-acquired information using the name of someone then believed to have been present at the breaching of the Capitol and who was the subject of an open predicated criminal investigation relating to that event. FBI personnel accessed contents information retrieved by the query without obtaining a FISC order under [section] 702(f)(2). The retrieved information was not used for any analytical, investigative or evidentiary purpose. [Page 33]

On January 17, 2021, an analyst conducted a query using an identifier for a presumed U.S. person thought to have been present at the January 6 Capitol breach. The analyst reviewed the contents of an email retrieved by the query, but determined it was not pertinent…On the facts provided, this query also appears to have violated the “reasonably likely to retrieve” standard. [Pages 33-34]

Similar circumstances were reported for two other queries conducted in response to a lead sent by a field office that had a predicated criminal investigation opened relating to the breach of the U.S. Capitol. Those queries returned Section 702-acquired contents, which were accessed but not used for any further analytical, investigative or evidentiary purpose. NSD assessed that these queries were not designed to find and extract foreign intelligence information, although each person running the queries believed that the U.S. Capitol breach implicated national security, and the field office that sent the leads also had a separate predicated investigation concerning possible foreign malign influence of the Capitol breach. [Page 34]


[REDACTED] ran a batch query of unminimized FISA information in June 2020, using identifiers of 133 individuals arrested “in connection with civil unrest and protests between approximately May 30, and June 18, 2020.” [during the Antifa/BLM riots of 2020] (…) NSD assessed that the queries were not reasonably likely to retrieve foreign intelligence information or evidence of a crime. [Page 27]

During June 11-15, 2020 [REDACTED] analyst conducted 656 queries of unminimized FISA information using identifiers [REDACTED] in the United States who were [REDACTED] thought to be of particular interest to the [REDACTED] (…) NSD concluded that these queries “were not reasonably likely to retrieve foreign intelligence information or evidence of a crime. [Pages 27-28]


Between late 2016 and early 2020, the FBI’s [REDACTED] regularly queried unminimized FISA information using identifiers of individuals listed in local police homicide reports, including victims, next-of-kin, witnesses, and suspects. (…) NSD [National Security Division – Dept. of Justice] found these queries to have violated the querying standard because there was no reasonable basis to expect they would return foreign intelligence or evidence of crime. [Pages 26-27]


[REDACTED] conducted a batch query for over 19,000 donors to a congressional campaign. The analyst who ran the query advised that the campaign was a target of foreign influence, but NSD determined that only eight identifiers used in the query had sufficient ties to foreign influence activities to comply with the querying standard.

– Section 702 of FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act):
Per The Washington Post:

The Section 702 database is a vast trove of electronic communications and other information that can be searched by the National Security Agency and the FBI. The FBI is authorized to search the database only when agents have reason to believe that such a search will produce information relevant to foreign intelligence purposes, or evidence of crimes.

Built in the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, the database is seen by U.S. officials as one of the prize jewels of the national security apparatus. Its primary purpose is targeting foreign intelligence or terrorism information. But the sweeping nature of the information in the database has long worried civil rights advocates, who argue that the government has proved it cannot be trusted to use the system carefully.

Per the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) (Archive)

Section 702 is a key provision of the FISA Amendments Act of 2008 that permits the government to conduct targeted surveillance of foreign persons located outside the United States, with the compelled assistance of electronic communication service providers, to acquire foreign intelligence information.

Per The Washington Post:
“Raw Section 702 information generally means electronic communications, such as emails or other digital messages, that have not been processed or filtered first to see if they meet the criteria of foreign intelligence information or evidence of a crime.”

– Section 702 set to expire this year:
Per Daily Caller:

Section 702 is set to expire at the end of 2023 unless Congress chooses to renew it, as it did in 2018. The Biden administration has expressed support for reauthorizing Section 702.

FBI Whistleblowers: Bank of America Gave Confidential Customer Data to the FBI…Voluntarily

Posted by FactReal on May 19, 2023

Bank of America (BoA) “provided the FBI with confidential customer data—voluntarily and without any legal process,” according to FBI whistleblowers testimony and a House Judiciary report released yesterday detailing FBI misconduct and retaliations.


Source: House Judiciary report ‘FBI Whistleblower Testimony Highlights Government Abuse, Misallocation of Resources, and Retaliation.’ (May 18, 2023)


Source: FBI Whistleblower Testimony Highlights Government Abuse, Misallocation of Resources, and Retaliation

About the FBI whistleblower
Page 1:
George Hill, a former FBI Supervisory Intelligence Analyst, who testified to the Committee on the Judiciary and the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government.

Bank of America (BoA) gave confidential customer data to the FBI voluntarily:
Page 1: Executive Summary [Emphasis added]

Shortly after the events of January 6, 2021, Bank of America (BoA) provided the FBI with confidential customer data—voluntarily and without any legal process. BoA gave WFO [FBI’s Washington Field Office] a list of individuals who had made transactions in the Washington, D.C. area using a BoA product between January 5 and January 7, 2021. Individuals who had previously purchased a firearm with a BoA product were reportedly elevated to the top of the list.

Page 30: D. The FBI Gathered Conservatives’ Financial Records from Bank of America
Without Any Legal Process Following January 6.

Just like FBI whistleblowers O’Boyle and Friend, retired FBI Supervisory Intelligence Analyst George Hill provided the Committee with detailed allegations of FBI civil liberties abuses. Specifically, he testified that following the events at the Capitol on January 6, 2021, Bank of America (BoA) gave the FBI’s Washington Field Office a list of individuals who had made transactions in the D.C., Maryland, Virginia area with a BoA credit or debit card between January 5 and January 7, 2021. He also testified that individuals who had previously purchased a firearm with a BoA product were elevated to the top of the list provided by BoA.
Specifically, Hill testified:

A. . . . The Bank of America, with no directive from the FBI, data-mined its customer base. And they data-mined a date range of 5 to 7 January [of 2021] any BOA customer who used a BOA product. And by “BOA product,” I mean a debit card or a credit card. They compiled that list. And then, on top of that list, they put anyone who had purchased a firearm during any date. So it was a huge list . . . .

Page 68: 1. George Hill. [Emphasis added]

Hill testified that he observed the FBI Sentinel electronic message bringing the list of Bank of America customers’ transactions purportedly related to January 6th into the FBI’s
internal system, and that “the [Supervisory Special Agent] and I had already talked about it, and the SSA had already talked to the [Assistant Special Agent in Charge] about it.” Hill believed the FBI’s receipt of this information was a violation of law, explaining that “there was no legal process . . . asking for it . . . from the Bureau or from DOJ or anybody.” On these facts, it is clear that Hill had a reasonable belief that there was a violation of law.

The Federalist: Durham Report 101

Posted by FactReal on May 18, 2023

For years, TheFederalist.com has been reporting facts about the alleged Trump-Russia collusion (the Democrats’ allegations that Trump colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election). Now, The Federalist is also reporting on the findings of the Durham Report, the recently released report from Special Counsel John Durham who looked into the origins of the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign and presidency (referred to as Crossfire Hurricane.)

Below we summarized some of the articles TheFederalist.com has published on the Durham Report.



But if you are in a rush, check these:
Quick summary of the Durham report and the Trump-Russia collusion
Conclusion of the Durham Report tweeted by Sean Davis, CEO of The Federalist:

Special prosecutor John Durham concluded that “neither U.S. nor the Intelligence Community appears to have possessed any actual evidence of collusion in their holdings at the commencement of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation.”


Durham’s Much-Needed Record Of Deep-State And Dem Corruption Proves Conservatives Were Spot-On
Highlights of their article:
– The Durham report provides the summary Americans need to understand the breadth of the malfeasance.
– The Durham report is a public record of the events that represent one of the biggest political scandals in American history, and on that front Durham delivered.
– The FBI launched the Crossfire Hurricane investigation without justification..without even speaking with the Australian diplomat or conducting any review or analysis of the supposed intel… [which]… would have revealed no connection between Trump and Russian leadership officials.
– Innocent individuals were harmed (Trump administration, Carter Page…) and our country
– [Durham’s] report confirmed many details concerning Hillary Clinton and her campaign’s role in peddling the Russia-collusion hoax.

Durham went much beyond summarizing the Clinton campaign’s hiring of Perkins Coie and in turn Fusion GPS, which contracted with Christopher Steele to compile the fraudulent dossier. Durham’s team also investigated the intelligence report that stated that on July 26, 2016, Hillary Clinton approved “a proposal from one of her foreign policy advisors to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the Russian security services.”

Branding this the “Clinton Plan,” Durham’s report then detailed the intelligence agencies’ briefing of then-President Obama on the Clinton Plan and the CIA’s formal written referral memorandum to Comey, then the FBI director, and Strzok, then the FBI deputy assistant director. No investigation took place…

– FBI’s Double Standard: Clinton vs Trump

While the FBI immediately opened a full investigation into Trump, the same did not occur when agents obtained stronger evidence of foreign interference related to Clinton.

– Clinton crony Charles Dolan had more Russia connections than Trump people…but the FBI shut down the investigation into Dolan. [Link added]
– The FBI relied on unverified Steele dossier and abused FISA warrants… even as the case against [Carter] Page continued to weaken.
– Steele’s primary source was potentially a Russian asset.
– The special counsel indicted our corporate media almost as much as the Clinton campaign and the FBI.
– The complicit media peddled the Russia-collusion hoax
– Durham detailed the symbiotic relationship between the Clinton campaign and the media outlets, the Durham report made clear the press bore responsibility for the hoax as well.”
– Durham report is a summary of the malfeasance even if no accountability is called:

The special counsel’s report provides the summary Americans need to understand the breadth of the malfeasance, and that is good even though Durham failed to hold anyone else criminally responsible for the plot.

The Durham Report Leaves No Doubt: The FBI Is A Mortal Threat To Democracy (May 16, 2023)

– What the report reveals above all is that the deep state is real, it’s corrupt, and it’s at war with the American people.
– The big takeaway from the report is that the Obama-era FBI launched a full investigation of the Trump campaign, codenamed Crossfire Hurricane, in the summer of 2016 despite having zero evidence of any collusion between Trump and Russia.
– Not only that, but officials at the highest levels of the U.S. government, including President Obama, knew that the entire false narrative that Trump was colluding with Moscow was completely made up by the Clinton campaign in an effort to weaponize the federal government against Trump and distract from Hillary Clinton’s own email server scandal.
– [Obama officials] knew as early as the summer of 2016 that the Clinton campaign had a plan to whip up a scandal by falsely alleging collusion between Trump and Moscow.
– The Durham report recounts how in August 2016, CIA Director John Brennan briefed [then-president] Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, FBI Director James Comey, and other senior administration officials on what the report calls the “Clinton Plan intelligence,” a scheme Clinton approved in July 2016 “to vilify Donald Trump by stirring up a scandal claiming interference by the Russian security services.”
– The FBI launched Crossfire Hurricane …on the basis of far-fetched claims that Trump was a Russian agent — claims that were made in the Steele dossier, a slapdash piece of oppo-research the Clinton campaign itself had paid for.
– That fall, the FBI used the baseless dossier to acquire FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign. All of this was eventually leaked to a compliant and incurious new media, and voila! Clinton’s Trump-Russia scandal was born — without a shred of evidence, and indeed despite significant evidence to the contrary.
– The Russia-collusion hoax was concocted and brought to life only because the most powerful people in the U.S. intelligence and law enforcement community wanted an excuse to weaponize the federal government against Donald Trump. They didn’t want him to be president, simple as that.

Here’s Everything The FBI Deliberately Ignored To Get Trump In Russian Collusion Hoax, According To Durham
– Tavern Talk [George Papadopoulos, Australian officials (July 2016]
– ‘A Complete Lack of Corroboration’
– Hide the Evidence
– Ignoring Inconvenient Leads
– One-Sided Story
– Strong as Steele? [Uncorroborated Steele dossier, sub-source Igor Danchenko]
– The Igor Issue
– The Closed Clinton Loop
– Double Standard [Democrat with ties to Russian government was not interviewed by the FBI]

Durham Report Reveals FBI Vendetta Against Carter Page Behind FISA Warrants

The Explosive Durham Report Proves Republicans Can’t Afford To Cower In The Fight Against Government Weaponization

Twitter thread from TheFederalist.com CEO and co-founder Sean Davis:
Here are some of his tweets put together:

BREAKING: Special prosecutor John Durham concluded that “neither U.S. nor the Intelligence Community appears to have possessed any actual evidence of collusion in their holdings at the commencement of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation.”

MORE from Durham’s 306-page report, which @FDRLST has obtained: “FBI records prepared by [Peter] Strzok in February and March 2017 show that at the time of the opening of Crossfire Hurricane, the FBI had no information in its holdings indicating that at any time during the campaign anyone in the Trump had been in contact with any Russian intelligence officials.”

According to the 306-page Durham report, the Obama FBI tried and failed to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on George Papadopoulos.

Durham concluded the Steele dossier was a complete joke and that the FBI failed to corroborate any of its key claims: “Our investigation determined that the Crossfire Hurricane investigators did not and could not corroborate any of the substantive allegations contained in the Steele reporting.”

Contra lies from @AdamSchiff and others about the Steele dossier and its inclusion in the illegal Carter Page FISA warrants, Durham’s report makes clear that the FISA applications included garbage from the Steele dossier: “The Steele Reports are included in the Page FISA application.”

Durham: The FBI knew Steele Dossier source Igor Danchenko’s claims about Sergei Millian were lies, which is why they never tried to even corroborate them. And yet, the FBI still put the false allegations in multiple illegal FISA warrant applications against Carter Page.

Durham concluded that the lies about Sergei Millian, which were one of the pillars of the bogus Steele Dossier, were seeded in their entirety by Fusion GPS, specifically Fusion employee/contract Nellie Ohr, who is married to Obama DOJ official Bruce Ohr.

John Durham’s investigation of the bogus Steele Dossier concluded that the infamous “pee tape” claim peddled in the dossier was an obvious lie whose provenance was complete nonsense and that the lie was likely fabricated in its entirety by Democrat operative Charles Dolan.

Hearing: FBI Retaliation Against Whistleblowers (5/18/2023)

Posted by FactReal on May 18, 2023

Today’s Hearing on the Weaponization of the Federal Government: FBI Whistleblowers Testify on FBI Retaliation and Politicization
By: Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government
Topic: House Judiciary explained:

The Committee will hear from three FBI whistleblowers and will examine abuses seen at the Bureau and how the FBI has retaliated against whistleblowers.

Summary: According to the FBI whistleblowers:
– The FBI has retaliated against FBI whistleblowers who expressed concerns about the bureau’s aggressive tactics against pro-life activists, parents, and others under the Biden administration.

– Among the FBI tactics: placing them on unpaid, indefinite suspension (under false pretenses), denied them opportunity to seek outside employment, leaked private medical information to the media, took their pay and security clearances, imposed illegal gag order, initiated campaign of humiliation and intimidation, etc.

– One of the whistleblowers (FBI agent O’Boyle) says that for a new position half-way across the country, the FBI “ordered me to report to the new unit when our youngest daughter was only two weeks old. Then, on my first day on the new assignment, they suspended me; rendering my family homeless and refused to release our household goods, including our clothes, for weeks.”

FBI Whistleblower Garret O’Boyle, whose family had to beg for clothes after exposing corruption at the FBI: “The FBI will crush you. This government will crush you and your family if you try to expose the truth about things they are doing that are wrong.”

To date, the Committee and Select Subcommittee have received whistleblower testimony from several current and former FBI employees who chose to risk their careers to expose abuses and misconduct in the FBI. Some of these employees—Special Agents Garret O’Boyle and Stephen Friend, Supervisory Intelligence Analyst George Hill, and Staff Operations Specialist Marcus Allen—have chosen to speak on the record about their experiences.

Daily Caller: FBI Made Iraq Veteran ‘Homeless’ For Speaking Out Against Bureau, Longtime Agent Testifies:

The Federal Bureau of Investigation essentially made an Iraq and Afghanistan War on Terror veteran and longtime agent “homeless” in retaliation for making whistleblower claims, the agent testified to Congress Thursday.

Garret O’Boyle, an FBI special agent, veteran, and former police officer, made whistleblower complaints to his superior and Congress, which culminated in him being placed on “unpaid, indefinite suspension,” according to a report released by Republicans on the House Judiciary Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government. The FBI issued the suspension while O’Boyle was in the process of moving from Kansas to Virginia, leaving his family and belongings in limbo, he testified. The agent previously alleged that FBI officials created a threat tag applied to anti-abortion activists and that the bureau improperly increased domestic terrorism case totals for political purposes.

Just The News: FBI whistleblowers testify on harsh retaliation from bureau, ‘weaponization’ of clearance process

Intelligence Analyst Marcus Allen:
– the bureau suspended his security clearance for raising concerns about the factual accuracy of testimony that FBI Director Christopher Wray gave to Congress about the events of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
– Allen wrote to his supervisors asserting that “there is a significant counter-story to the events of 6 January 2021 at the US Capitol. There is a good possibility the DC elements of our organization are not being forthright about the events of the day or the influence of government assets.”
– the bureau subsequently suspended his security clearance, questioned his loyalty to the United States, and accused him of holding “conspiratorial views.”
– The FBI ignored his request for approval to obtain outside employment during the review of his security clearance.

Special Agent Garret O’Boyle:
– FBI prioritized investigations into anti-abortion groups after the 2022 Dobbs v. Jackson decision
– O’Boyle questioned the point of such an approach, noting that it was pro-abortion protesters who demonstrated outside of the homes of Supreme Court justices
– O’Boyle: “[T]he FBI destroys their careers, suspends them under false pretenses, takes their security clearances and pay with no true options for real recourse or remedy. This is by design; it creates an Orwellian atmosphere that silences opposition and discussion.”

Special Agent Stephen Friend:
– was suspended for raising concerns about the bureau’s alleged manipulation of crime statistics, its treatment of Jan. 6 defendants, and its use of SWAT teams.
– “the FBI weaponized the security clearance processes to facilitate my removal from active duty within one month of my disclosures.”
– “In addition to an indefinite, unpaid suspension, the FBI initiated a campaign of humiliation and intimidation to punish and pressure me to resign,” his statement continues. “In violation of HIPPA, individuals at the FBI leaked my private medical information to a reporter at the New York Times. In violation of the Privacy Act, the FBI refused to furnish my training records for several months.”
– “The FBI denied my request to seek outside employment, in an obvious attempt to deprive me of the ability to support my family.”
– “Finally, the FBI Inspection Division imposed an illegal gag order in an attempt to prevent me from communicating with my family and attorneys”


Rep. Jim Jordan’s opening statement:

Whistleblower: FBI Staff Operations Specialist Marcus Allen:

Rep. Greg Steube: FBI Director Wray and AG Garland testified they would not retaliate against whistleblowers…but they did:

Democrat Rep. Linda Sanchez:

Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-CA) asks FBI whistleblower Marcus Allen to respond to a tweet saying that Nancy Pelosi staged January 6 from a Twitter account under his name.

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

Dinesh: Durham Report Uncovered Election Interference by FBI, Hillary, Democrats

Posted by FactReal on May 17, 2023

Dinesh D’Souza talked about the findings of the Durham investigation (the origins of the Trump-Russia collusion hoax perpetrated by Democrats.)

Podcast: Vindication (aired: May 16, 2023)
Show recap: “In this episode, Dinesh reviews the findings of the Durham final report, arguing that it uncovers an immense election interference scheme involving Hillary, Obama and the FBI. Simona Papadopoulos joins Dinesh to discuss the Durham conclusions and how she is now being targeted by the Biden State Department. Also, journalist Sara Carter on the border, and on her new children’s book.”
Video via YouTube or Rumble:

Dinesh also pointed out at Durham’s strange decision:
– Durham found that U.S. intelligence agencies had absolutely no basis for opening up an investigation into the Trump campaign and later into the Trump presidency.
– The Durham report shows Obama admin. officials knew the Russia collusion lie was coming from the Hillary Clinton campaign.
– This was ultimately an effort to frame Trump and, of course, massive election interference [in 2016].
– Hillary Clinton should be indicted, arrested and charged.
– But there’s no indication that Durham is doing this or even recommending it. Rather he is merely putting the facts out.
– Durham is not following through on the implications of what he himself knows and what he himself puts on the report.
– This is corruption at the highest levels of government.
– This is not only highly unethical. It’s illegal. It is unconstitutional. It is election interference.
