FBI Director Wray is accused of being aware of problems and doing nothing to resolve them. This Report comes after agent in charge of Hunter laptop case resigns over bias.
The FBI rank-and-file have lost confidence in Director Christopher Wray and are calling for his resignation, according to a report.
Kurt Siuzdak, a lawyer and former FBI agent who now represents whistleblowers at the bureau, said that agents are telling him Wray has lost control of the agency and they do not see how he can continue in his position.
‘I’m hearing from [FBI personnel] that they feel like the director has lost control of the bureau,’ Siuzdak told the Washington Times.
‘They’re saying, ‘How does this guy survive? He’s leaving. He’s got to leave.’
‘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.’
Siuzdak claimed he left his job as an FBI agent after almost 25 years last March because of alleged politicization at the top and said FBI leaders not being held accountable.
The report comes hot on the heels of the resignation of Timothy Thibault, the FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the Hunter Biden laptop investigation, over accusations of political bias.
Thibault reportedly retired from the bureau at the end of last week and on Friday was escorted out of the building for the last time, according to Fox News.
The following Monday, the whistleblower’s report alleging inadequacies in Wray’s leadership of the emerges.
In disclosures to Congress on about corruption and retaliation, FBI agents say that Wray would become aware of problems within the bureau but then never took action to resolve them.
Some of those problems that Wray ignored included being forced or coerced into signing false affidavits, claims of sexual harassment and stalking and fabricating terrorism cases to elevate performance statistics.
Trump nominated Wray in 2017 after firing then-director James Comey over his investigation into Trump’s links to Russia.
Thibault was one of 13 assistant special agents assigned to investigate the Hunter Biden laptop saga and was removed from the supervisory role by FBI Director Christopher Wray earlier this month after agency whistleblowers shed light on an alleged pattern of political bias from multiple high-ranking officials.
The agent was also singled out by Senate Judiciary ranking member Chuck Grassley, who on July 18 penned a letter to Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland imploring the pair to act on allegations of political bias influencing agency operations.
‘As you are aware, Assistant Special Agent in Charge Tim Thibault is not the only politically biased FBI agent at the Washington Field Office,’ Grassley wrote, reminding Wray that ‘the FBI answers to Congress and the American people.’
Thibault’s resignation follows a flurry of damning claims about the FBI and their handling of the Hunter probe.
Republican Senator Ron Johnson sent a letter to DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz last week claiming the bureau deliberately dragged its feet in the investigation and told agents not to look at the laptop.
‘Recently, my office heard from individuals with knowledge of the FBI’s apparent corruption,’ Johnson said.
‘After the FBI obtained the Hunter Biden laptop from the Wilmington, DE computer shop, these whistleblowers stated that local FBI leadership told employees, “you will not look at that Hunter Biden laptop” and that the FBI is “not going to change the outcome of the election again,”‘ Johnson wrote to Horowitz.
‘While I understand your hesitation to investigate a matter that may be related to an ongoing investigation, it is clear to me based on numerous credible whistleblower disclosures that the FBI cannot be trusted with the handling of Hunter Biden’s laptop,’ Johnson said.
‘I hope you understand that the longer your office stands on the sidelines and delays investigating the FBI’s actions, the harder it will be for you to uncover the truth and hold individuals accountable for wrongdoing.’
Horowitz told Johnson in February 2021 that the OIG would not investigate the FBI’s handling of the laptop so as not to interfere with the Department of Justice’s investigation into Hunter’s tax affairs.
