FBI Whistleblowers Testify Before House Weaponization Committee; Dems Make Demands

Objectivity 4.8 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

On May 18 the House Judiciary Select Subcommittee on Weaponization of the Federal Government heard testimony from three FBI agents-turned whistleblowers.  Democrats took issue with the fact Marcus Allen, suspended FBI agent, had spoken with Republican subcommittee members before the hearing without Democrats being present. Rep. Stacey Plaskett (D-Virgin Islands) demanded access to the transcript of Allen’s comments.  A subcommittee member said, “Democrats issued a report attacking these whistleblowers and disparaging their character. Simply put, whistleblowers are not comfortable speaking to Democrats because of their record of slandering whistleblowers.” All three men who claimed whistleblower status should have been provided immunity from illegal retaliation by FBI officials, but instead they said they have suffered significant abuse after sharing information with Congress.
