Jim Jordan has sent a letter to the corrupt Christopher Wray, the director of the FBI notifying him that his committee wants to interview 16 FBI agents that were mentioned by three whistleblowers. Jordan is convinced that they have information that proves useful. He also reserves the right to call more agents as they develop more information and more names are mentioned during the investigation. Jordan, who chairs the Weaponization of the Federal Government Select Subcommittee, sought the testimonies after conducting closed-door interviews of three FBI witnesses.
Jordan wrote to Wray:
From the documentary and testimonial information that we have obtained to date, we have identified several FBI employees who we believe possess information that is necessary for our oversight.
We anticipate that we may require testimony from additional FBI employees as our oversight continues, and we expect your cooperation in facilitating these future interviews as well.
The 16 witnesses Jordan wants to call are present and recent FBI agents. Most of them with the title of Special Agent in Charge. The witnesses questioned so far this year include George Hill, a retired national security intelligence supervisor in the FBI’s Boston Field Office; Steve Friend, a former Florida-based FBI special agent; and Garret O’Boyle, a suspended Kansas-based FBI special agent. O’Boyle was suspended for talking to the committee.
According to the transcripts, Hill and Friend testified in detail that they felt that certain officials were devoting themselves only to J6 cases. Let’s face it, the FBI is no longer about investigating crimes, it is set up to enforce the ideology of the far-left. Hill and Friend also testified that the FBI was prioritizing “domestic violent extremism” and inflate the number of such cases in the aftermath of the riot.
Friend, whose security clearance the FBI suspended last September, and O’Boyle, who testified in his interview that his security clearance was suspended last September as well, also maintained during their testimonies that the FBI retaliated against them for whistleblowing, including by suspending their clearances.
Multiple left-leaning media outlets, including CNN, the New York Times, and Rolling Stone magazine, first provided glimpses of the three agents’ testimonies and backgrounds in reports on Thursday, which coincided with Democrats releasing a 316-page report that same day on their takeaways from the interviews with the three witnesses.
The Democrats claimed the three witnesses were “not, in fact, ‘whistleblowers,’” contending they had “put forward a wide range of conspiracy theories” but no “actual evidence of wrongdoing” by the FBI or Justice Department.
Jordan spokesman Russell Dye told Breitbart News the details in Thursday’s media reports and in the Democrat publication were based on “cherry-picked excerpts of testimony” designed “to attack brave whistleblowers who risked their careers to speak out.”
Jordan’s request to interview the 16 individuals comes as part of an expansive investigation by the newly created weaponization subcommittee into alleged civil liberties violations by executive branch agencies, including the FBI and Justice Department.
The subcommittee was created partly because of numerous allegations made by FBI whistleblowers — including Hill, Friend, and O’Boyle — whom Jordan has been vetting over the past year and a half.
Acknowledging in his letter Friday that he has received some pushback from the Justice Department on his investigative pursuits, Jordan wrote:
We are aware that the Justice Department has preemptively indicated that it intends to limit the scope and nature of information available to the Committee as part of our oversight.
You should know, however, that despite the Department’s assertions to the contrary, congressional committees have regularly received testimony from non-Senate-confirmed and line-level Justice Department employees, including FBI employes [sic], in the past. We expect this past precedent to apply to our oversight as well.
