Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee have released a whistleblower report detailing the FBI’s “serious abuse” and misallocation of resources.
A whistleblower informed House Republicans that the FBI has “let itself become an envelope of politicization and weaponization” and has “rotted to its core.”
“It is clear from these disclosures, and especially in the wake of Special Counsel John Durham’s report, that the FBI has become politically weaponized,” the report said.
“Among other findings, the report reveals the ways that the FBI sought to inflate domestic terrorism figures, particularly in regards to Jan. 6 cases. According to the report, the FBI Washington Field Office (WFO) pressured its Boston office to investigate 140 individuals in connection to Jan. 6,” The Epoch Times reported.
“This fits with past allegations claiming that the FBI has sought to inflate the number of domestic violence extremism incidents (DVEs). President Joe Biden and Democrats have long claimed that home-grown terrorism is the greatest threat to American national security, and Republicans claim that the inflation of DVEs is to serve this narrative.
In the report, Republicans wrote, “FBI leadership exerted pressure on agents to reclassify cases as [DVEs] and even created DVE cases where they did not exist.”
The Republican report also asserted that the whistleblowers who came forward “described retaliatory conduct that they have faced after making protected disclosures.”
The FBI issued a statement to the Epoch Times denying that whistleblowers were subject to retaliation.
“The FBI’s mission is to uphold the Constitution and protect the American people,” the FBI spokesperson said. “The FBI has not and will not retaliate against individuals who make protected whistleblower disclosures.”
Republicans in the House are also conducting investigations into the family of President Joe Biden.
A leading House investigator believes that President Joe Biden used his position as vice president in the Obama administration to set up family members as highly compensated business consultants abroad.
James Comer, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, told the Washington Times that former President Obama may have been aware that former Vice President Biden was using his position to amass substantial wealth for his family.
“Mr. Biden’s years as vice president took him to China, Russia, Ukraine, Romania, and other countries, including Mexico. In each of the places he traveled, Mr. Biden’s son Hunter, brother James and a small group of associates pursued lucrative business deals. The unusual sequence of payments for those foreign deals, which ended up in the bank accounts of nine Biden family members, have been exposed in the thousands of bank records,” the Washington Times reported.
“Everywhere where there are odd payments, the president spent time toward the end of his vice presidency. I think there are more companies, more banks, and more Bidens” involved in the foreign business deals, Comer said.
Last week, Comer suggested to Great America Show anchor Lou Dobbs that Obama was aware of the Biden family’s dubious international business dealings, which have been the subject of a federal investigation for years.
“I believe, Lou, that it’s because he knew what Joe Biden was doing the last year of his vice presidency,” Comer said.
“He knew his son (Hunter Biden) was no good, and he knew this was nothing but a political liability not just for our country, not just for the democrat party, but for Obama’s legacy,” the Kentucky Republican added.

Comer also raised the possibility that Obama’s awareness of the family’s business dealings might have influenced his hesitation to fully endorse Biden’s presidential campaign in 2020. CONTINUE READING…
