FBI has become ‘politically weaponized’ – former special agent — RT World News

A Republican-led committee is investigating claims of institutional bias in the US criminal justice system.

A former FBI agent told US lawmakers in Washington that many Americans have lost faith in law enforcement and the office has become “political weaponization” by the federal government.

Nicole Parker, a former FBI agent, testified Thursday before a House committee investigating the so-called “weaponization” of the federal government. She said it appeared”as if there were two FBIs” throughout her career with the law enforcement office.

Parker, who was employed by the FBI between 2011 and 2022, explained in his testimony that there was a gap between the organization’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. and various field offices around the United States. .

The FBI Became a Political Weapon, Starting From the Beginning in Washington [and] drips down the field offices‘ said Parker. “On paper, the bureau’s mission remains the same, but its priorities and governing principles have changed dramatically. All of this makes many Americans lose faith in the FBI and the morale of many FBI employees is low..”

Parker previously said in a Fox News op-ed last month that the FBI was weighed down by “from one problem of politicization to another.” She cited the situation that saw FBI agents kneel in support of Black Lives Matter protesters following the death of George Floyd in 2020 as an example of the agency’s involvement in the issues. political topic.

Parker left the FBI late last year,”with an exemplary and spotless record.”

The FBI said Thursday in a statement to New York Post Office that it expects its agents”to maintain the highest standards.”

Our work is critical to protecting the American people from many threats and protecting their constitutional added.

The subcommittee is chaired by Republican Jim Jordan, a prominent critic of the alleged politicization of the FBI and the US Department of Justice. He has also accused the agencies of targeting conservatives, and claims to have contacted via “dozens and dozens” of FBI agents accused of political bias within the agency.

In January, House voted across parties to form a ‘weaponization’ subcommittee. It is also investigating methods used by the US government in collecting and analyzing information about US citizens.
