WASHINGTON (TND) — The House Weaponization Committee held a news conference Thursday morning to discuss their findings in an interim report on FBI whistleblower testimony.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, led the conference on how "the Bureau has retaliated against brave whistleblowers who have come forward to expose the abuses they have witnessed at the FBI."
A hearing began at 9 a.m. with testimony from three FBI whistleblowers.
It comes one day after the FBI said it revoked the security clearances of three agents who attended either the January 6, 2021, US Capitol riot or supported alternate theories about the attack, according to a letter the FBI subcommittee obtained which CNN obtained.
Jordan has long claimed that the FBI and Justice Department have become increasingly politicized in recent years.
“We’re looking forward to having these whistleblowers in public for the first time,” he told CNN. “We’re going to let them tell their story, because they have definitely been retaliated against, and in some cases it’s really bad.”
