This is a little awkward. A bunch of D.C. folks including former Trump admin officials just got through defending AG Merrick Garland from the notion that he’s just a “Democratic hack”. (When was the last time a White House Democrat put anyone except a party hack in as AG? Janet Reno, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch? The only thing that could be said for them is that they weren’t biologically related to Clinton or Obama. Like RFK.) And then ole Merrick goes and does this.
If you don’t have the patience to read through this whole thing, after a bout of some whistleblowing, AG Merrick Garland sent out a letter to DOJ employees warning them not to talk to Congress.
“Except as provided in this chapter, no Department employee may communicate with Senators, Representatives, congressional committees, or congressional staff without advance coordination, consultation, and approval by OLA,” the Democratic party hack frantically threatens DOJ employees thinking of blowing the whistle.
Now I’m not a constitutional scholar or anything, but last time I checked the legislative branch has a certain role in the government. Telling DOJ employees not to talk to one of the three branches of government has a certain banana republic quality to it. It also loudly announces that the DOJ exists to serve as Biden’s creature.
I can’t think of anything more corrupt that Garland could have done short of sending the feds to raid his boss’ former political opponent.
What’s Garland so worried about? Well there have been those whistleblowers inside the FBI coming forward.
The Garland witness intimidation letter is dated Aug 30. That’s an interesting date.
Timothy Thibault, a top-level FBI agent who had been under fire for his role in investigations regarding President Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, resigned late last week and was walked out of the FBI, two U.S. officials confirmed. But these officials also said that Thibault had reached retirement age, and they added that all of those who retire hand over their badge and gun and are escorted out of the building.
Thibault, who worked in the FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C., had recently been removed from his position as assistant special agent in charge at the FBI’s Washington Field Office, which covers all of the District of Columbia and Northern Virginia.
Thibault came under fire earlier this year from Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley who had accused him of “improper conduct” in the Hunter Biden investigation, alleging that Thibault had tried to shut down any investigatory activity. The probe into Hunter Biden’s business practices, run by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware, is ongoing.
Grassley said in late July that “highly credible” whistleblowers had approached a senior Senate Republican and alleged a widespread effort within the FBI to downplay or discredit negative information about Hunter Biden. He cited a 2020 FBI intelligence assessment that was “used by an FBI headquarters team to improperly discredit negative Hunter Biden information as disinformation.” He continued, “Based on allegations, verified and verifiable derogatory information on Hunter Biden was falsely labeled as disinformation.”
In October 2020, one month before the election, “an avenue of derogatory Hunter Biden reporting was ordered closed” by a senior FBI agent at the bureau’s Washington Field Office. An earlier letter from Grassley identified the agent as Thibault.
So no, Garland isn’t another Democrat hack. He’s an arm of a deeply corrupt regime intimidating whistleblowers while staging a coup against legitimate legislative authority.
But then who in the Biden administration isn’t?
