Report: FBl Terminating Agents Who Support Trump

Over at PJM, Matt Margolis described more sobering reports of a completely corrupt and partisan agency.

According to internal documents, FBI officials, as part of a confidential security clearance assessment for a longtime employee, probed into the individual's political inclinations, stance on COVID-19 vaccination, and participation in Second Amendment gatherings. The internal memo triggered a complaint to the Justice Department's internal oversight body.

John Solomon reports:

The memos show that agents for the FBI’s Security Division asked at least three witnesses in spring 2022 whether the employee, whose name and job title was redacted from the memos, had been known to “vocalize support for President Trump” or “vocalize objections to Covid-19 vaccination.” Agents ascertained from at least one witness that the worker, in fact, had declined to get the coronavirus inoculation.

The latter questions about the vaccine were asked in spring 2022, a few months after the U.S. Supreme Court had struck down vaccine mandates in corporate workplaces and a separate federal court had issued an injunction on federal employee vaccine mandates.

The employee’s security clearance was revoked months after the interviews, which confirmed his support for Trump and gun rights and his concerns about the COVID vaccine, according to the documents

The agents also asked witnesses whether the FBI worker had “attended the Richmond Lobby Day event” in January 2021, a rally for supporters of the Second Amendment in Virginia. The agents’ notes referred to the colleague they were vetting as a “gun nut” but who in engaged in “no promotion of violence.”

It should go without saying that every American, regardless of their political affiliation, must be treated equally.

However, we know that some totalitarian movements throughout history have leveraged the democratic process to obliterate the democratic process.

A Solzhenitsyn quote comes to mind, for no particular reason.

And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.

Solzhenitsyn's masterful The Gulag Archipelago 1918–1956 seems apt at this juncture in American history.

Follow me @directorblue.

So now we have to be a card carrying Communist; to obtain a job within the Federal Government?

I read all three volumes of Gulag Archipelago a couple years ago
Everyone should at least read the short version or the 1st book
