It would appear that rogue agents, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page were not the only ones having illicit sex in the FBI. A whistleblower now says that hundreds of FBI employees have resigned due to sexual misconduct allegations.
So, evidently, they have been screwing more than the J6 political prisoners. According to a top U.S. Senator, the anonymous informant has said that hundreds of FBI employees have resigned after being accused of inappropriate behavior.
According to the whistleblower, this has occurred over a 15-year period and most of the victims have been women. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), the top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee, sent a letter to Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray telling them that 665 FBI employees, including 45 senior officials, left the bureau to “avoid accountability” from 2004 to 2020.
Grassley then speculated that the number could be higher since resignations and retirements were not taken into account that may have occurred before or after the investigation.
Grassley wrote in the letter:
“The allegations and records paint a disgraceful picture of abuse that women within the FBI have had to live with for many years. This abuse and misconduct is outrageous and beyond unacceptable.”
“FBI employees should not have to suffer under daily abuse and misconduct by their colleagues and supervisors.”
Grassley accused the systemic failure of so many women to be subject to sexual harassment and sexual misconduct. David J. Shaffer, a Washington attorney representing several alleged victims of sexual misconduct told the associated press that “the most serious abuse of the FBI disciplinary system is to retaliate against the very women who complain by starting investigations against them after they report sexual misconduct.”
Many of the women are afraid to say anything because they could be retaliated against.
Tracy Walder, a former FBI agent, left the bureau in 2006 after she filed a complaint. She claims the entire FBI does not act this way, but that it is widespread nonetheless.
“However, because of the way I was treated. I feel a sense of shame and ‘What if?’ And this behavior has been allowed to continue for decades.”
David J. Shaffer, a Washington attorney representing several alleged victims of sexual misconduct in the FBI, told The Associated Press that “the most serious abuse of the FBI disciplinary system is to retaliate against the very women who complain by starting investigations against them after they report sexual misconduct.”
Shaffer said it discourages reporting in the FBI “due to fear of retaliation.”
A spokesman for the FBI told The Washington Examiner that the agency “looks critically” at itself and would continue to make improvements.
“The bottom line is, employees who commit gross misconduct and sexual harassment have no place in the FBI,” the spokesman said. “We prioritize investigation and adjudication of sexual harassment and misconduct cases, and when allegations of sexual harassment are substantiated, FBI employees face severe consequences, including permanent demotion, removal from supervisory ranks, or termination.”
The AP reported that Grassley’s office declined to reveal the whistleblower’s name to protect the person’s identity.
