“Thibault was seen exiting the bureau’s elevator last Friday escorted by two or three “headquarters-looking types.”
Former Washington Field Office Special Agent in Charge Tim Thibault was reportedly escorted out of the Bureau’s headquarters on Friday, amid whistleblower allegations that he showed political bias in his handling of politically sensitive investigations.
The Washington Times reported eyewitness accounts that “Mr. Thibault was seen exiting the bureau’s elevator last Friday escorted by two or three ‘headquarters-looking types.'”
Whistleblowers alleged that Thibault concealed the partisan nature of evidence from FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland to secure their approval to open an investigation into former President Donald Trump. That investigation culminated in the FBI’s raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate earlier this month.
The public release of the affidavit that accompanied the search warrant revealed the warrant application relied heavily on information from news articles, including a CBS Miami piece titled “Moving Trucks Spotted At Mar-a-Lago” and a Breitbart News article in which former Trump adviser Kash Patel discussed the classified status of documents the bureau previously removed from the estate on behalf of the National Archives.
Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley confirmed to Just the News prior to the raid that Thibault had been removed from his post and reassigned to an unspecified position.
Thibault is the same shitbag that shut down the investigation into Hunter Biden’s crimes, and pressured agents to categorize cases as “domestic violent extremism”. He demonstrated a pattern of active political partisanship on his social media, declined to open or approve investigations of Hunter Biden based on partisan objectives, and tried to improperly mark investigations in the FBI systems so that it could not be opened in the future.
Thibault is the same as the rest of the hierarchy in the FBI. His mistake was getting exposed.
