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.
“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,” said Seraphin, a five-year veteran and former Air Force member who is currently suspended without pay and unable to seek another job without quitting or getting the FBI’s permission.
In one particularly poignant segment, Seraphin recalled being sent to Washington, D.C.’s Holocaust Memorial Museum as part of his orientation. He said that new agents were informed by Seraphin that the atrocity would not have occurred without his participation. “minor government officials”Supported by federal and local law enforcement.
“If anybody refuses to get with the program, it doesn’t happen,”He said. “The answer, ‘I’m just following orders,’ the Nuremberg piece, it doesn’t fly. We know better.”
Seraphin stated that he followed the training during his disclosure, and is currently being punished.
“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,”He said.
Seraphin stated that he believed he was already marked inside the FBI for not getting a COVID vaccine after he contracted it in late 2020. Although he was granted a religious exemption for his actions, he also helped to organize up to 300 FBI workers who opposed the mandate from government.
Seraphin claims that he whistleblowed the Department of Justice targeting parents of education-activist children last November after Merrick Garland, Attorney General, testified to Congress, denied the Department of Justice had used law enforcement tools meant for terrorists. Seraphin, who previously worked in the bureau’s Washington field office but by last year was stationed in New Mexico, went to his local member of Congress with an email that had been widely circulated within the bureau. The email, he said, relayed Garland’s orders to use Patriot Act counterterrorism tools to target parents at school board meetings through a tag called “EDUOFFICIALS.”
When it became clear that the DOJ had issued the orders in coordination with the White House (and the National School Boards Association) to denounce the school boards, scandal ensued. “domestic terrorists”Parents who opposed radical gender or race theories were reprimanded by the school board association. Following protests by dozens of state representatives, the school board association apologized.
“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,”Seraphin spoke. “That’s not what people want to get involved in.”
Representative Jim Jordan (R.OH) claims that at most 14 whistleblowers have contacted him to report on how partisan politics infected his bureau and made it hostile to conservative Americans. Allegations include silencing investigations of Hunter Biden’s damning laptop, manipulating crime statistics, and spying on law-abiding Americans. Steve Friend, a whistleblower recently claimed that the Bureau is being ordered to increase the domestic terrorism case count. After his identity was revealed to a media outlet, Friend was fired.
“We now understand based on what we’ve learned that he’s been suspended, which appears to be some kind of retaliation,”Jordan spoke on the John Solomon Reports Podcast. “The law says that whistleblowers, agents coming forward as whistleblowers, are protected by the law. There’s not supposed to be retaliation.”
Seraphin said “more than people than you think”They are revealing that they have left the bureau due to their belief it has been part of a partisan agenda. He stated that agents can receive pensions up to $60,000 per year after working for 20 years. Many who are already halfway towards qualifying will continue on, despite the disgusting leadership of Director Christopher Wray.
Seraphin said several agents he knows took part in the August 8 raid on former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home, which he said he would’ve refused to participate in.
“I’ve got friends that I don’t speak to after that,”He said. “I assume they were part of it. I don’t know what happened, but you guys forgot to throw the B.S. flag on that.
“You ask me to go raid President Obama’s house, you ask me to raid President Bush’s house, it’s not happening,”He continued. “It’s not happening. I’m sorry, it’s not happening. I’m not doing that. I’m going to be, probably pretty vocal. That’s probably going to be my last day.”
