Wednesday Morning Rant | Main | Now It's Eight Suspected ISIS Terrorists Who Illegally Crossed the Nonexistent Southern Border -- and All Were "Vetted" By the Biden Administration Before Being Allowed to Enter the US
June 12, 2024

John Solomon: The FBI Has Imposed a Political Test for Security Clearances -- Supporting Donald Trump or Questioning the Covid Vaccines Makes You a Threat to the National Security of the United States

James Comey was a former communist. So was John Brennan at the CIA.

Some say they still are.

The left long ago got communist sympathies -- and later, foreign jihadist terrorist sympathies -- normalized in the "intelligence" services.

But supporting Donald Trump?

Questioning the safety of an untested, entirely new gene therapy?

Supporting the Second Amendment??!

These dangerously subversive positions make you ineligible for a security clearance.

In shocking litmus test, FBI security inquiry tried to unmask employee's Trump support, memos show

The New McCarthyism? FBI Interviews raised politically-slanted questions including employee's vaccine hesitancy, 2nd Amendment support, prompting a bias complaint to DOJ's internal watchdog.


FBI officials conducting a top-secret security clearance review for a longtime employee asked witnesses whether that employee was known to support former President Donald Trump, if he had expressed concerns about the COVID-19 vaccine or had attended a Second Amendment rally, according to internal memos that prompted a complaint to the Justice Department's internal watchdog alleging political bias inside the bureau.

The employee's security clearance was revoked months after the interviews, which confirmed his support for Trump and gun rights and his concerns about the COVID vaccine, according to the documents obtained by Just the News.

The memos show that agents for the FBI's Security Division asked at least three witnesses in spring 2022 whether the employee, whose name and job title was redacted from the memos, had been known to "vocalize support for President Trump" or "vocalize objections to Covid-19 vaccination." Agents ascertained from at least one witness that the worker, in fact, had declined to get the coronavirus inoculation.

The latter questions about the vaccine were asked in spring 2022, a few months after the U.S. Supreme Court had struck down vaccine mandates in corporate workplaces and a separate federal court had issued an injunction on federal employee vaccine mandates.

The agents also asked witnesses whether the FBI worker had "attended the Richmond Lobby Day event" in January 2021, a rally for supporters of the Second Amendment in Virginia. The agents' notes referred to the colleague they were vetting as a "gun nut" but who in engaged in "no promotion of violence."

FBI officials declined comment about why a worker's support for Trump and the Second Amendment or his hesitancy to get the COVID-19 vaccine had relevance to his security clearance.

They also declined to answer whether similar questions about support for Joe Biden or other medical issues, such as a woman's support for abortion.

...

"The FBl's intentions are made clear by the questions it chose to put in black and white on a government document," added Leavitt, whose group has represented the IRS whistleblowers in the Hunter Biden case as well as several FBI agents and analysts who claim their security clearances were suspended or revoked because of their political views.

One of those FBI employees, intelligence analyst Marcus Allen, was vindicated last week when the bureau restored his clearance and paid him more than two years of back pay, according to CNN.

...

If the inspector general opens an inquiry, it could help the public and Congress determine whether the FBI's questions about Trump were more widespread than the employee who went to Washington on Jan. 6, 2021, or whether other questions about political preferences and medical treatments are asked during traditional security clearance reviews.

In very related news: Merrick Garland says you'd better stop alleging that the DOJ he runs has been weaponized against you.
