A former FBI special agent on Thursday delivered an emotional testimony before the House Subcommittee on Weaponization, telling lawmakers that she had resigned from the bureau after it had become “politically weaponized.”
Nicole Parker, a former FBI special agent who served in the bureau from 2011-22, reflected on her career, saying that she had felt she had been making an “impactful difference.”
“Every day, I woke up and embraced being an FBI special agent. Until things changed,” she said, adding that the FBI’s “trajectory transformed.”
“On paper, the bureau’s mission remained the same, but its priorities and governing principles shifted dramatically,” Parker said. “The FBI became politically weaponized, starting from the top in Washington and trickling down to the field offices.”
“Although FBI employees have their first amendment rights, they are not at the liberty to allow their personal political views or preferences to determine their course of action or inaction in any investigation,” Parker explained. “Lady Justice must remain blind — those that do not uphold these responsibilities cause a negative ripple effect through the agency in the field.”
She added: “It’s as if there became two FBIs.”
Parker said that the “two FBIs” were headquarters, based in Washington, D.C., and the field offices, where “the standard rank” work to “serve the country, protect American citizens, and fight crime.”
“We have no interest in politics,” she testified.
Parker said that now, there has been a “loss of trust” of the FBI by many Americans, causing “low morale” among FBI employees.
……”For me, distancing myself from egregious mistakes, immoral behavior, politically charged actions taken by a small but destructive few FBI employees became exhausting,” Parker said, adding that she “no longer felt” that she was “the type of agent the FBI valued.”
Parker resigned from the bureau less than four months ago, “with an exemplary and spotless record.”
Whistleblowers have come forward to say Christopher Wray has lost control of the agency, that the same FBI boss who shut down the probe into Hunter Biden’s laptop also pressured agents to inflate the number of “domestic extremists”, and how the agency suppresses evidence of Biden family crimes.
The corrupt FBI sewer rats have committed egregious crimes against civil liberties to intimidate and suppress dissent. Since 6 January, FBI gestapo targeted an innocent man for attending President Trump’s 6 January rally, raided the wrong home in Alaska looking for Nancy Pelosi’s laptop, arrested a man for standing inside the capitol and waving a Trump banner, confiscated a Lego set from an “insurrectionist” and asked that citizens turn in their “extremist friends and relatives“.
Former FBI Deputy Assistant Director of the Counterterrorism Division Terry Turchie slammed the use of SWAT teams to terrorize people accused of misdemeanors. Former Special Agent Stephen M. Friend, who served as a SWAT team member, also testified how SWAT teams were being misused and Jan 6 protesters’ rights were being violated.
The FBI and the DOJ need to be dismantled from the top down. The criminal malfeasants in both agencies should be indicted and prosecuted. We know that won’t happen because agencies weaponized by Dem regimes trample all over the Constitution while Congress does nothing. All the hot air and indignation during oversight hearings are a dog and pony show.
