FBI Insiders Expose the Agency, Reveal Leadership is Pressuring Agents to Lie about “Domestic Extremism” to Make Trump Supporters Seem More Dangerous than They Are
Whistleblowers from within the FBI have revealed that leadership within the organization is pressuring agents to reclassify cases as “domestic violent extremism,” despite lacking the evidence to do so.
This is being done in an effort to dramatize the so-called domestic terrorism threat that conservatives and Trump supporters pose to America. If the Biden administration can make people think of them as extremists and dangerous, they are less likely to vote for them in the midterms and in elections in general.
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, penned a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray stating that these whistleblowers had come forth to expose the FBI’s efforts to “pad domestic terrorism data” trying to make the supposed ‘threat’ of Trump supporters and conservatives seem more pressing.
Jordan confirmed that the bureau is misclassifying cases as if they were due to Domestic Violent Extremists (DVEs).
“From recent protected disclosures, we have learned that FBI officials are pressuring agents to reclassify cases as ‘domestic violent extremism’ even if the cases do not meet the criteria for such a classification. Given the narrative pushed by the Biden administration that domestic violent extremism is the ‘greatest threat’ facing our country, revelation that the FBI may be artificially padding domestic terrorism data is scandalous,” Jordan wrote.
“We have received accusations that FBI agents are bolstering the number of cases of DVEs to satisfy their superiors. For example, one whistleblower explained that because agents are not finding enough DVE cases, they are encouraged and incentivized to reclassify cases as DVE cases even though there is minimal, circumstantial evidence to support the reclassification,” he continued.
According to Jordan, the bureau is even going so far as to reward agents who classify cases under the DVE label – having created a specific system to compensate those agents.
“Another whistleblower — who led at least one high profile domestic terrorism investigation — stated that a field office Counterterrorism Assistant Special Agent in Charge and the FBI’s Director of the Counterterrorism Division have pressured agents to move cases into the DVE category to hit self-created performance metrics,” Jordan wrote.
“According to whistleblowers, the FBI uses these metrics to dispense awards and promotions. Every whistleblower has called it an environment of ‘pressure’ within the FBI.”
Director Wray has proven himself to have a severe left-wing bias even though he was hired under the Trump administration. Last year he claimed that the DVE threat is likely the primary terrorism threat in the United States and that the 2020 election was feeding that threat.
He further claimed that DVE incidents could become more prevalent because of radicalization due to the election.
“Looking forward, the FBI assesses DVEs pose an elevated threat of violence to the United States, and some of these actors have been emboldened in the aftermath of the breach of the U.S. Capitol. We expect Racially or Ethnically Motivated Violent Extremists, Anti-Government or Anti-Authority Violent Extremists, and other DVEs will very likely pose the greatest domestic terrorism threats in 2021 and likely into 2022,” Wray testified to Congress.
