Thursday, May 18 the House Weaponization of the Federal Government Subcommittee heard stunning testimony from FBI agent whistleblowers about the political bias of the FBI aimed at Conservative Groups, Conservatives, and President Trump. Shockingly we have seen more documented evidence of this bias and the assault on American citizens by law enforcement agencies targeting people because of their political affiliation. These actions are typical of dictatorships, Communist countries, and third-world totalitarian regimes. When people compare the FBI to the abusive secret police of East Germany, The STASI, you know we have fallen to a place we should not be. This should not be the United States, but sadly it is.

The FBI whistleblowers, decorated agents, and some decorated military combat veterans were attacked and harassed not just by the FBI leadership who is directing this abuse of power but by the Democrats who sat on this subcommittee. These Democrats, including the ranking Democrat Rep. Stacey Plaskett (D- Virgin Islands) were an embarrassment to Congress in their attack on these brave agents who have decided they would risk their livelihood and families in defense of their oath of office, to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

From all of these documented actions of bias and abuse as stated in the Durham Report, the testimony of these agents, the known circumstances of armed FBI SWAT teams raiding a home of an individual whose crime was to pray at abortion clinics, to send in undercover agents to attend Catholic Mass, to sending agents to confront parents who complain to school boards about concerns of the schooling and indoctrination of their children, it is clear the FBI has lost its way. The FBI seems more to be a threat to Americans, than an organization that should protect Americans. The Senior Leadership of the FBI has sadly disparaged the brave actions of thousands of agents, like these brave whistleblowers who entered the FBI to protect Americans.

As political analyst Mark Halperin stated on Newsmax, the FBI needs a bi-partisan review to fix the bias and abuse of power which is so evident. Unfortunately, as displayed by the Democrats yesterday this is not possible. Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green (R- Georgia) has introduced Articles of Impeachment against Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christopher Ray. This process should proceed forward. Secondly, the only way the needed reform can occur to save Americans from this abuse is for a Republican President and a Republican Congress who can rid us of this abusive leadership and restore the integrity of the FBI to be elected in 2024.
