(Headline USA) A lawyer representing a number of FBI whistleblowers said this week that the agency have “lost confidence” in Director Christopher Wray following the agency’s raid on former President Donald Trump’s home and the revelation that FBI leadership deliberately stalled an investigation into Hunter Biden.
“I’m hearing from [FBI personnel] that they feel like the director has lost control of the bureau,” Kurt Siuzdak told the Washington Times. “They’re saying, ‘How does this guy survive? He’s leaving. He’s got to leave.'”
Agents have told Siuzdak, “All Wray does is go in and say, ‘We need more training and we’re doing stuff about it,’ or ‘We will not tolerate it,’” he added.
Siuzdak was an FBI employee himself for 25 years but left the bureau in March after management failed to hold bad leaders responsible, he said.
A number of other FBI employees feel the same way, he said, and have accused Wray of failing to confront issues inside the bureau that ranged from agents being forced to sign false affidavits to sexual harassment claims.
Former President Donald Trump encouraged rank-and-file FBI employees this week to resist corrupt leaders like Wray.
“When are the great Agents, and others, in the FBI going to say ‘we aren’t going to take it anymore,’ much as they did when James Comey read off a list of all of Crooked Hillary Clinton’s crimes, only to say that no reasonable prosecutor would prosecute,” he wrote on Truth Social.
“The wonderful people of the FBI went absolutely ‘nuts,’ so Comey had to backtrack and do a FAKE INVESTIGATION in order to keep them at bay. The end result, we won in 2016 (and did MUCH better in 2020!). But now the ‘Left’ has lost their minds!!!”
In another comment, Trump said, “FBI, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
