FBI whistleblower says many in agency creating 'Orwellian' atmosphere that 'silences opposition'
"Too many in the FBI aren't willing to sacrifice the hard right over the easy wrong," O'Boyle said during his opening statement.
FBI whistleblower Garret O'Boyle said during the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government hearing Thursday that the organization has created an "Orwellian atmosphere."
"Too many in the FBI aren't willing to sacrifice the hard right over the easy wrong," he said during his opening statement. "They see what becomes of whistleblowers — how the FBI destroys their careers, suspends them under false pretenses, takes away their security clearances and pay with no true options for real recourse or remedy."
"This is by design," he continued. "It creates an Orwellian atmosphere that silences opposition and discussion."
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan secured the in-person testimony of former FBI officials Garret O'Boyle, Steve Friend and Marcus Allen, who have been suspended for vocalizing concerns about politically-motivated weaponization in the FBI and treatment of whistleblowers who come forward.
The whistleblowers allege that the FBI has inflated statistics on "domestic violent extremism."
