Every time progressive SwampLovers have sneered and mocked our reports of the fact that highly respected GOPs (no, it ain't an oxymoron) have been interviewing FBI whistle-blowers, HtS has been biding his time.
Former FBI Special Agent Nicole Parker testified to a House panel investigating the “weaponization” of the federal government that the bureau is plagued by “low morale,” has become “politically weaponized,” and has lowered its standards for new agents.
Parker's emotional testimony Thursday highlighted the first hearing by the new House Judiciary Committee’s Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government.
Parker, who worked out of the FBI’s Miami field office, resigned from the bureau last year...
Parker claimed the bureau has been troubled by “one politicization issue after another,” citing the case of agents in FBI vests who knelt with Black Lives Matter protesters in Washington following the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin.
In January, the House voted to establish the “weaponization” subcommittee on a straight party-line vote.
When pb couldn't choose pb as his moniker on the SS Post, he chose HatetheSwamp on the spur of the moment. He's celebrated that choice many times.
pb is a GOP but, much more than than that, he despises what DC has become. pb is flabbergasted how brainlessly Curt, especially, but all of the progressive SwampLovers here defend so easily the dysfunctional DC political culture.
Well, gang. Truth is now being told. Nicole Parker, as pb understands it, will be the first of many truth tellers.
It stuns pb that Dems are pushing back against this truth telling. Wonder why.
Democratic committee members pushed back against some of their Republican colleagues and some of the panelists. Several, including Ranking Member Stacey Plaskett, D-Virgin Islands, said the FBI did not target parents but instead investigated threats of violence.
Plaskett also questioned the usefulness of the subcommittee, which she said seems like “little more than a political stunt.”
Yesterday, the day of Parker's testimony, should be established as a national holiday. Truth Day: February 9!
