(Republican Insider) – Republican Rep. Jim Jordan from Ohio recently sent out a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray, making allegations that FBI employees reported a purge of conservative-leaning agents at the agency.
This, of course, would not be surprising. We’ve seen with our own two eyes how the FBI has become soiled and sully, full of corrupt progressive minions who are serving their far-left overlords in a myriad of ways, such as spying on then-candidate Donald Trump, and actively working to have him removed from the White House.
There’s much more than that, but those two examples let you know just how bad things are at the bureau.
The Ohio congressman put out a copy of the letter in a post on Twitter, going on to describe whistleblowers as a “decorated Iraq War veteran” who is facing serious retaliation over comments he made about the investigation into the Capitol riot. Apparently, this employee then promptly had his security clearance suspended, and then he himself was suspended without pay for allegedly pushing “unreliable information” and espousing “conspiratorial views.”
🚨 LATE BREAKING: New whistleblowers allege the FBI is “purging” conservatives at the Bureau.
One agent? A decorated war veteran who served in Iraq and Kuwait.
The FBI had the audacity to question the whistleblower’s loyalty to the country! pic.twitter.com/5yCCIp20MQ

I mean, conspiracies exist. We know that from a cursory glance back at our own nation’s history. Why is “conspiratorial views” a thing to fire someone over? Doesn’t that mean an individual just happens to see connections others can’t? Wouldn’t that sort of be a gift in a job where you investigate crimes? Just something to think about.
“We’ve now had half a dozen FBI members come forward as whistleblowers, two on the school boards issue that I know we have talked about, and four relative to January 6,” Jordan stated during an interview with host Maria Bartiromo on “Mornings With Maria” Wednesday on Fox Business Network.
“We continue to investigate allegations that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is retaliating against FBI employees for engaging in disfavored political speech,” Jordan wrote in the letter addressed to Wray on Tuesday. “On May 6, 2022, we sent you a letter that detailed examples of the FBI suspending the security clearances of FBI employees for their participation in protected First Amendment activity. To date, you have failed to acknowledge our letter or begin to arrange for the requested briefing.”
“Jordan told Bartiromo that three other agents came forward regarding the Capitol riot and two of the whistleblowers contacted the committee about the FBI’s involvement in issues surrounding school boards,” WND reported.
“FBI employees who attended public events in Washington, D.C. during the Capitol riot claimed their security clearances were suspended, Jordan wrote in a May 6 letter to Wray,” the report continued.
“[I]t is extremely concerning that the FBI would seek to suspend the security clearances of these employees and begin the process to potentially terminate their employment altogether,” the Ohio congressman stated. “Even more insulting is that the FBI would openly question the patriotism of long-time FBI employees, including at least one veteran, because they exercised their First Amendment rights on their personal time without breaking any laws.”
The whole purpose of the First Amendment is to protect free speech from the government stripping it away from citizens who might dare to criticize the actions it is taking in running the nation. It was created to protect folks like this employee. The FBI is literally the government. There is no authority given to this agency to boot people for having a “conspiracy theory” about something.
It blows the mind to see such an open, egregious violation of free speech by a government entity that is supposed to serve the people of the United States. Liberals are scared to death of conservatives expressing their views and thoughts, knowing that this will likely lead to the truth coming out about what the government is up to behind closed doors.
Which makes it all the more important to fight and ensure the FBI doesn’t get away with silencing someone based on political ideology. We need more people on the inside to rock the boat.
