(Republicaninformer.com)- While House Republicans are getting ready to look into how the FBI has allegedly been “weaponized” against conservative Americans under Director Christopher Wray’s leadership, an FBI whistleblower said that Wray is frantically trying to reposition himself as a non-partisan, law and order figure.
The allegations were made in a piece for Uncoverdc.com by Steve Friend, an eight-year agent placed on indefinite leave after complaining about internal FBI procedures and subsequently approaching GOP politicians.
According to Friend, Wray’s Fox News article criticizing urban lawlessness and pervasive disrespect for law police inspired his own column.
When violent anarchists attempted to create an “independent zone” in Seattle when protesters attacked a federal courtroom in Portland and shoplifters set fire to buildings in Minneapolis in 2020, where was Wray’s attention focused?
Instead, the FBI has recently used a sizable portion of its $10 billion budget to look into Christians who pray outside abortion clinics, parents who speak up during school board meetings, and others who express worries about election fraud online.
Friend claims that Wray is in a “precarious situation” since the House Judiciary Committee has established a separate subcommittee to investigate the “weaponization of government” and seems to have the FBI in sight. One of Wray’s fiercest opponents, Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH), will now have the authority to summon witnesses to investigate claims of FBI misconduct.
In recent weeks, the FBI actively encouraged Twitter to block conservatives, according to internal Twitter emails made public by Elon Musk and a landmark lawsuit filed by the attorneys general for Louisiana and Missouri against the federal government. It even paid Twitter $3.4 million to comply with its requests, which according to legal experts, probably violated the Constitution. Critics have been labeled “conspiracy theorists” by Wray’s FBI.
The FBI allegedly used false information to obtain warrants to spy on members of former President Trump’s campaign, pushed Twitter and Facebook to suppress the New York Post’s explosive reporting on Hunter Biden’s laptop just before the 2020 presidential election, and sparked a Department of Justice investigation into Trump based on a discredited dossier commissioned by Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2016. Since Trump chose Wray in 2017, he has been the bureau’s director.
In addition, Friend questioned the FBI’s involvement in the scheme to abduct Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, its raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in August, and its failure to catch the pipe bomber on January 6.
According to a poll conducted in August, 68.3% of Republicans and over 50% of independents think the agencies are “too politicized, crooked, and not to be trusted.”
