In recent years, the FBI has lost its reputation among Americans. You probably remember how they tried to undermine the 2016 Election by wrongfully investigating Trump and his campaign. They lied to acquire a warrant to spy on one of Trump’s staffers. And they continued to wrongfully investigate Trump while in office, all over political reasons.
We later found out that the FBI interfered with the 2020 Election. They deliberately refused to investigate Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop, knowing it would hurt Joe’s chances. They perverted the cause of justice to help Democrats win. More recently, they raided Trump’s home–with armed agents–over something Biden had been doing for years.
Can this disgraced agency get any worse? Oh, yes it can. A new report reveals what the FBI’s been allowing within its ranks.
Scores of FBI employees have been caught over the last five years engaging in unethical and illegal conduct such as driving drunk, stealing property, assaulting a child, mishandling classified documents, and losing their service weapons — but they often escaped being fired, according to internal disciplinary files provided to Just The News.
One agent left a highly lethal M4 carbine unsecured in his government car during a Starbucks run and had the weapon stolen, but even he received only a two-week suspension despite violating the bureau’s protocols for weapons storage, the records show…
Sexual misconduct was also rampant in the reports dating to 2017, including inappropriate affairs with felons in prison, confidential sources and subordinate employees. The sexual transgressions, however, often resulted in firings, unlike the drunk driving and lost weapons offenses. [Source: Just the News]
These aren’t simply minor ethical breaches, like taking pens home from the office. The report reveals that numerous FBI employees were caught drunk driving, stealing, assaulting a child, mishandling classified docs, and even letting weapons get stolen. Yet none of these people faced serious consequences for their actions.
Even more shocking, some FBI agents were engaged in sexual misconduct. Some even had affairs with prison felons! While these situations sometimes resulted in firings, we have to wonder if anyone was prosecuted over this, since some sexual misconduct is criminal.
Keep in mind, this is the country’s highest law enforcement agency. Yet their own employees were engaged in shocking, often unlawful, behavior. And few faced penalties or were fired.
How are Americans supposed to respect this agency, over news like this? It seems in recent years, the FBI has been more concerned with helping Democrats win elections than they have been with enforcing the law. They can’t even make sure their own workers are following the law!
When did this start? The report goes back five years, to the start of the Trump administration. But this didn’t just pop up when he entered office. The FBI and DOJ have been politicized since the Obama administration. Under Bush, this agency was working overtime to flush out terrorists. But Obama abused the DOJ’s power to pursue leftist goals.
That culture continued through the Trump administration, when we saw the FBI going after a sitting president. To today, when the DOJ went after parents for questioning school boards and the FBI ignored crimes to protect Democrats during an election.
Perhaps the whole damn agency needs to be swept clean? Fire all of them and start over.
