The FBI has take a lot of flak lately, particularly from right-leaning sites like this one. The raid on Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home, the attack on a pro-life advocate at his home, the surrounding of Mike Lindell in a Denny’s parking lot while he was on a hunting trip…all of it seems a bit too much like banana republic tactics for most conservatives. And so they’re furious with the FBI, lobbing bombshell after bombshell in the agency’s direction and demanding that it be defunded. Even traditionally “back the blue” type Republicans have joined in with that, hammering the agency hard for what it’s been up to.
But that’s just the beginning of the FBI’s problems. Now, further flames have been lit under the agency’s ass by a whistleblower named Kyle Seraphin. As the Daily Wire recently reported:
An FBI whistleblower warned that the bureau has been transformed from a law enforcement agency to an intelligence-gathering operation that spies on law-abiding Americans to help advance a political agenda and said thousands of agents and employees feel betrayed by the bureau’s leadership.
Kyle Seraphin told podcaster and radio host Dan Bongino over a bombshell, two-part interview that agents are routinely directed to spy on Americans with little or no basis, the bureau’s management ranks are hopelessly politicized by inexperienced corporate climbers, and that hundreds of experienced agents are staying on despite their disgust simply to collect their pensions.
Watch his interview with Dan Bongino here:
As you can hear in the video, Seraphin, an Air Force veteran who is now suspended without pay from the FBI thanks to his bucking the trend and taking a stand against the politicized agency, said: “The number of guys who say, ‘I don’t agree with what’s going on here, but I’ve got three years to retire,’ it’s heartbreaking.”
Continuing, he noted that he knows that’s not a valid excuse, saying:
“If anybody refuses to get with the program, it doesn’t happen. The answer, ‘I’m just following orders,’ the Nuremberg piece, it doesn’t fly. We know better.”
He then noted that he’s being punished for sticking to his training and coming forward when he saw illegal, or at least unethical, things happening at the agency, but is now being punished for doing so. In his words:
“We’re supposed to know that if they ask you to do something that is illegal, immoral, or unethical, following orders is not an excuse.”
And Seraphim pinned the beginning of the troubles within the agency as happening during the school board protests and Garland’s response to them, saying:
“That’s when you become part of political hatchet jobs, and I didn’t sign up for that, and nobody I know signed up for that either. That’s not what people want to get involved in.”
But while Seraphin is brave and willing to come forward rather than yell “I was only following orders” like a camp guard, most within the agency sadly aren’t…and so the politicization and weaponization of the FBI appears to be continuing unabated.
