Jim Jordan’s ‘Real Concern’ about the FBI
We have seen in recent years that we should be closely watching federal law enforcement for corruption which means we should be praying as well.
From Fox News. Rep. Jim Jordan Wednesday said there’s “real concern” about an allegedly political climate in the FBI that is leading to some people being retaliated against for “disfavored political speech.”
Jordan, R-Ohio, made the comments the day after sending a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray alleging two instances in which FBI employees were punished for political speech surrounding the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.
“It’s a real concern. I don’t know how pervasive it is,” Jordan told Fox News Digital. “But what I do know is that we’ve had a lot of people, more than half a dozen in the FBI… come forward to our Republican staff on the Judiciary.”
Jordan’s Tuesday letter alleged one employee’s security clearance was suspended, as was his duty and pay, for allegedly sharing views “that the FBI was not being entirely forthcoming about the events of January 6.” That individual was a military veteran with a record of being highly successful in the FBI, according to Jordan.
According to Jordan’s letter, lawyers for the individual called the FBI’s allegation a “distortion” and a “monumental leap from objective fact.”
He also said the FBI “escalated an adverse personnel action” against another employee over an answer on an anonymous survey sent to employees after Jan. 6.
Jordan told Fox News Digital Wednesday these people are not the first to come to his team with similar allegations. He also said that he has confidence Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz will properly handle the allegations after Jordan brought similar stories from other FBI employees to him previously.
