Just to correct the record, the Supreme Court did not ban abortions. They just followed the constitution. That document states that anything not specifically granted to the federal government would belong to the individual states. Majority rules in each separate state. As such, the FBI does not have the right to target people or groups who do not support abortion. But a whistleblower in the FBI has come forward and revealed that the FBI was targeting pro-lifers. Hence, the Mark Houck inquisition.
On February 10, FBI Special Agent Garret O’Boyle of the Wichita Resident Agency, where O’Boyle was assigned in the Kansas City field office, learned of the targeting. He went before the House Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government. That committee is chaired by conservative bulldog Jim Jordan.
O’Boyle testified that the FBI set up a program known as “THREATSTOSCOTUS2022”. This led to the threat the FBI posed for pro-lifers.
“When this threat tag came out, it was like, ‘Why are you focusing on pro-life people?’ It’s pro-choice people who are the ones protesting or otherwise threatening violence in front of Supreme Court justices’ houses.”
O’Boyle says he was pressured to ask a pro-lifer about threats to the Supreme Court justices.
O’Boyle then said:
“I was like, ‘Why would this person know about those threats? He’s pro-life.’ Like, he’s not the one going and threatening the Supreme Court justices.”
This is why I have been advocating for the elimination of the FBI and replacing it with a new agency that would not be able to hire former FBI agents. The FBI is beyond saving. It is corrupt to the core. It starts at the top and works its way down. The previous directors of the FBI have been Chris Wray, Andrew McCabe, James Comet, and Robert Mueller. Not one of these could manage a Cathouse on a Naval base.
When asked whether he believes that the FBI had politicized threat tags, O’Boyle responded pointedly “I do.”
The FBI denied O’Boyle’s allegations in a statement:
“[W]e will vigorously pursue investigations of any threat or use of violence committed by someone who uses extremist views to justify their actions, regardless of motivation or what side of an issue that person is on. We do not conduct investigations based on a person’s political or social views.”
“Any assertion that the FBI manipulates statistics on domestic terrorism cases is categorically false. We follow the facts of each case and will never open an investigation based solely on First Amendment-protected activity.”
Oh, really? Can you name one Democrat that had their house raided at four in the morning by 30 FBI agents carrying automatic weapons? I hear crickets.
O’Boyle also declared that the FBI was breaking up cases to give the impression there are more domestic terror attacks than there really were:
“Where, really, I was working on one case, but the FBI can then say, ‘Well, he actually had four, and so we need you to give us more money because look at how big of a threat all this domestic terrorism is.”
O’Boyle then indicated that the agency had retaliated against him for voicing his concerns publicly, claiming that he had been suspended by the FBI and then prevented from collecting his belongings from a Virginia storage facility after he spoke out. He said that he had to spend $10,000 to reclaim those items. The FBI “was being weaponized against agents or anybody who wanted to step forward and talk about malfeasance inside the agency prior to this,” he asserted.
The FBI statement, however, denied that the agency has punished any “individuals who make protected whistleblower disclosures.”
O’Boyle’s testimony comes on the heels of Attorney General Merrick Garland testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week. During some tense exchanges with several Republican senators, Garland admitted that pro-lifers had been disproportionately prosecuted compared to pro-abortionists. However, Garland insisted that most pro-life “crimes” are committed in broad daylight, while pro-abortionists often prefer the cover of darkness to commit their crimes, which makes them more difficult to investigate.
