The news is not good for President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice. Fox News reports the FBI appears to be “unraveling from the inside as allegations mount that the agency’s behavior in the Hunter Biden laptop story may have violated federal law enforcement norms.”
The New York Post reports that Bureau “Director Christopher Wray has lost the confidence of rank-and-file FBI agents.”
After first stating that a senior FBI official was retired and escorted from the FBI building per usual protocol, the bureau later acknowledged that the FBI official was forced to resign and left under a cloud of controversy, including charges of improper conduct, political bias and suppressing information related to the infamous Hunter Biden laptop.
Kurt Siuzdak, an FBI whistleblower, told the Washington Times: “I’m hearing from [FBI personnel] that they feel like the director has lost control of the bureau. They’re saying, ‘How does this guy survive? He’s leaving. He’s got to leave.'”
Siuzdak continued: “[The FBI agents] are telling me they have lost confidence in Wray. All Wray does is go in and say, ‘We need more training, and we’re doing stuff about it,’ or ‘We will not tolerate it.'”
Siuzdak recounted that he “left the bureau in March after a 25-year career because management failed to hold bosses accountable, a problem that stems from politicization at the highest levels of the agency.”
The Times indicated whistleblowers alleged that Wray did not take action when confronted with claims that agents were forced to sign false affidavits or ignore sexual harassment claims.
In a statement to the Times, a whistleblower emphasized the importance of the bureau acting with integrity:
“The men and women of the FBI work hard every day to protect the American people and uphold the Constitution. All employees are held to the highest standards of professional and ethical conduct, and we expect them to focus on process, rigor, and objectivity in the performance of their duties,” the statement said.
The Post noted that Wray called allegations that Thibault blocked an investigation into Hunter Biden’s laptop “deeply disturbing.”
In July, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) submitted his concerns in writing to Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland. In the letter, he charged the agency with burying verified and verifiable information about President Biden’s son by incorrectly labeling it as misinformation.”
Grassley added: If the accusations are true, the FBI and the Justice Department are “institutionally corrupted to their very core.”
