Three FBI agents, including two who were set to testify before a House Judiciary subcommittee this week, had their security clearances revoked recently over concerns about their views on—and participation in—the Jan. 6 Capitol riots, according to The New York Times.
The individuals who had their security clearances pulled were identified as Stephen Friend, Marcus Allen, and Brett Gloss in a letter from the bureau to Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee. All three men have been suspended by the FBI as investigators review their cases, the Times said. Friend and Allen, identified as “whistleblowers” by the committee, are expected to answer questions from its Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government in a Thursday hearing.
All three lied to their fellow FBI agents and/or their superiors about January 6th rioters and the riot, including their own activities and participation in the illegal events of that day. Yup, very credible witnesses that the House GOP collected! 🙄
