Thirty former FBI agents, including a retired deputy assistant director, head of counterterrorism and five SWAT team members, have spoken out publicly in support of suspended FBI whistleblower Stephen Friend.
Their heartfelt messages, obtained exclusively by The Post, show a deep and widespread anguish about the politicization of the FBI.
“It’s time to stop the FBI from being the enforcer of a political party’s ideology,” says Ernie Tibaldi, a retired agent from San Francisco. “We need to re-establish the FBI as the apolitical and independent law enforcement entity that it always was.”
He expressed gratitude to Friend “for having the courage to stand up to the corruption that has taken over the leadership of the FBI.”
Many former agents hailed Friend, a SWAT team member in Florida, as a “hero” after he was punished for refusing to participate in what he regarded as unnecessarily heavy-handed SWAT raids over Jan. 6 misdemeanors.
In his whistleblower complaint to the Department of Justice inspector general, Friend alleged that the FBI has been manipulating case-file management in order to falsely inflate the threat of domestic terrorism, and using unconstitutional excessive force against political dissenters. more
Only 30 former, is not much of a message, must be a fear problem on the inside team. We need watch dogs with much bigger and sharper teeth watching our called watch dogs.
Time to disband the FBI. Or should I say it was time quite a awhile ago to disband the FBI.
Can you say Lon Horiuchi? He shot a mother. You know how dangerous parents are. We can’t have them running around.
Deplorable Second Class: Any bets that their pensions have been threatened?
If Sean Hannity wasn’t completely full of shit this would be in the thousands, if not tens of thousands. The FBI is a rogue Agency that no longer serves the American people. IT is not worthy of even a modicum of respect and outside of these thirty everyone connected with it is knowingly involved in the corruption and is either supporting the corruption or enabling the corruption.
Stephen Fiend is a true American hero who deserves our gratitude, respect, and whatever support we can give
deplorable…who besides the president and congress has that power? no one i can think of
I have no doubts that anyone who could or can correct the FBI is afraid of them for the power and ability they have for making things up out of thin air and MSMs full propaganda support to back the leaked lies up. We have all seen that every day or two.
