Democrats Attempt to Discredit Weaponization Committee’s FBI Witnesses: ‘These Are Not Whistleblowers’

Ashley Oliver19 May 2023Washington, DC100

Democrats called into question the credibility of Republican witnesses during a contentious congressional hearing Thursday aimed at examining allegations of wrongdoing within the FBI.

Weaponization of the Federal Government Select Subcommittee Democrats repeatedly claimed that the three current and former FBI employees appearing for testimony were not in fact whistleblowers.

“These individuals have been determined not to be whistleblowers,” Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) said. “These are not whistleblowers.”

“The law has not determined they are whistleblowers,” ranking member Del. Stacey Plaskett (D-V.I.) added.

Rep. Sylvia Garcia (D-TX) called the hearing “a partisan political stunt that is more interested in attacking the FBI than helping whistleblowers.”

“In Texas we would just say that this is just a lot of hot air blowing here and it ain’t a whistleblower,” Garcia said.

Garret O’Boyle, Steve Friend, and Marcus Allen, all of whom had their security clearances revoked or suspended by the FBI, testified that they had witnessed anti-conservative bias at the bureau, brought it to the attention of their supervisors and later Congress, and were retaliated against because of it.

Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), a longtime oversight hawk who authored the most recent successful whistleblower legislation in 2012, tore into the Democrats for doubting the witnesses’ whistleblower status.

“They’re missing the point. Each of these whistleblowers came forward with what is clearly protected disclosure,” Issa said.
