Democrats attack FBI whistleblowers — giving cover to the agency’s abuses

by James Bovard

“Congressional Democrats revealed a new federal crime Thursday: having the same name as anyone who tweeted derisively about the Jan. 6 Capitol Clash. Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.), vice chair of the House Equality Caucus championing LGBTQI+, sought to demolish FBI whistleblower Marcus Allen for retweeting a post asserting ‘Nancy Pelosi staged January 6.’ When Allen repeatedly stated that wasn’t his Twitter account, Sanchez berated him for interrupting her tirade. After she finally seemed to admit it wasn’t his account, she demanded to know if Allen agreed that Pelosi staged Jan. 6. Allen said no, and Sanchez’s time expired. This epitomizes how congressional Democrats treated FBI whistleblowers in Thursday’s House Weaponization of the Federal Government Subcommittee hearing.” (05/18/23)
