Miranda Divine: FBI Hero Punished For Protesting the Brutal Tactics Being Used Against People for the Crime of Being Conservative

Some ham-and-eggers are stepping up-- and the FBI is punishing them.

One big part in the below article that I haven't quoted concerns his attempts to have his complaints heard. If you're reporting misconduct in the federal government, your superiors are supposed to work with you, and if they can't, they're supposed to direct you to their superiors, and then ultimately to an inspector general.

The FBI ignored all of these rules and just kept telling him to shut up about the 6th and 8th Amendment violations. Every time he would object to something illegal or unethical, they would strongly suggest his job was in peril, asking him things like, "And how long do you expect to be working at the FBI?" or inviting him to do "some soul-searching" about how much he really wanted to be at the FBI.

Or telling him he was "a bad teammate."

Obviously, when an employee comes to you telling you that he has seen illegalities, you're not supposed to say "Shut up or you'll be fired and lose your pension."

But that's exactly what happened to Steve Friend.

And now he's out of work.


Bombshell allegations by FBI Special Agent Steve Friend contained in a whistleblower complaint filed late Wednesday with the Department of Justice inspector general reveal a politicized Washington, DC, FBI field office cooking the books to exaggerate the threat of domestic terrorism, and using an "overzealous" January 6 ­investigation to harass conservative Americans and violate their constitutional rights.

Friend, 37, a respected 12-year veteran of the FBI and a SWAT team member, was suspended Monday, stripped of his gun and badge, and escorted out of the FBI field office in Daytona Beach, Fla., after complaining to his supervisors about the violations.

He was declared absent without leave last month for refusing to participate in SWAT raids that he believed violated FBI policy and were a use of excessive force against Jan. 6 subjects accused of misdemeanor offenses.

This American hero, the father of two small children, has blown up his "dream career" because he could not live with his conscience if he continued to be part of what he sees as the unjust persecution of conservative Americans.

"I have an oath to uphold the Constitution," he told supervisors when he asserted his conscientious objection to joining an Aug. 24 raid on a J6 subject in the Jacksonville, Fla., area. "I have a moral objection and want to be considered a conscientious objector."

Friend, who did not vote for Donald Trump in the 2020 election, said he told his immediate boss twice that he believed the raid, and the investigative process leading up to it, violated FBI policy and the subject's right under the Sixth Amendment to a fair trial and Eighth Amendment right against cruel and unusual punishment.

Friend was taken off child exploitation cases to work the January 6th raids. He was told that child pornography was no longer a high priority at the FBI. The Insurrectionists were the real threat.

He repeatedly objected to using armed raids against citizens guilty of, if anything, minor misdemeanors. He pointed out that simple phone calls inviting them to come to the FBI office to answer questions would suffice.

But no, the FBI wanted to scare and intimidate families, so they sent men armed with M-16s to pound on doors.

And they insisted on sending Steve Friend, even though he repeatedly told them he wanted to be considered a conscientious objector and not go on these terror raids.


Among Friend's allegations:

The Washington, DC, field office is "manipulating" FBI case management protocol and farming out J6 cases to field offices across the country to create the false impression that right-wing domestic violence is a widespread national problem that goes far beyond the "black swan" event of Jan. 6, 2021.

As a result, he was listed as lead agent in cases he had not investigated and which his supervisor had not signed off on, in violation of FBI policy.

FBI domestic terrorism cases are being opened on innocent American citizens who were nowhere near the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, based on anonymous tips to an FBI hotline or from Facebook spying on their messages. These tips are turned into investigative tools called "guardians," after the FBI software that collates them.


The FBI has post-facto designated a grassy area outside the Capitol as a restricted zone, when it was not restricted on Jan. 6, 2021, in order to widen the net of prosecutions.

The FBI intends to prosecute everyone even peripherally associated with J6 and another wave of J6 subjects are about to be referred to the FBI's Daytona Beach resident agency "for investigation and arrest."

In Today's FBI, complaining about unethical Gestapo tactics gets you punished by your bosses:

In a Sept. 16 letter from the head of FBI human resources, he was told he was losing his security clearance also because he "espoused beliefs which demonstrate questionable judgment [and demonstrated] an unwillingness to comply with rules and regulations."

In his whistleblower complaint, Friend describes "reprisals" from his supervisors after he voiced his conscientious objections.


...

Federico [his superior] told him it would have been better to just "call in sick" rather than voice his objection and "threatened reprisal indirectly by asking how long I saw myself continuing to work for the FBI."

Four days later, Friend was summoned to Jacksonville to meet his next-level bosses, Assistant Special Agents in Charge Coult Markovsky and Sean Ryan, about his refusal to join the SWAT raid.

He told them about his concerns over "irregular" case handling of J6 matters that he believed were in violation of a legal rule known as "Brady" that requires prosecutors to disclose evidence that would exonerate a defendant.

They asked if he believed any J6 rioters committed crimes and he replied: "Some of the people who entered the Capitol committed crimes, but others were innocent. I elaborated that I believed some innocent individuals had been unjustly prosecuted, convicted and sentenced."

Markovsky then asked Friend if J6 rioters who "killed police officers" should be prosecuted, even though no such thing happened. When Friend pointed out that "there were no police officers killed on January 6, 2021," Markovsky told him he was being a "bad teammate."

Cops and prosecutors are indeed required to turn over exculpatory evidence to defendants. But crooked cops and prosecutors will often claim that exculpatory evidence isn't exculpatory, from a certain point of view, and hide it.

It's unethical.

It also happens every day, because there are a lot of crooked cops and prosecutors.

And you can't get rid of them, because when someone in the system like Steve Friend notes this crime, he's told he's "a bad teammate" and should find a different line of work.


Both agents "threatened reprisal again by warning that my refusal [to go on the SWAT raid] could amount to insubordination. References were made to my future career prospects with the FBI."

Friend was labeled AWOL the day the raid took place and stripped of his pay.

This is amazing. This is the real FBI.


A week later, he was told to meet the top agent in Jacksonville, Special Agent in Charge Sherri Onks, who told him he needed to do some "soul searching" and decide if he wanted to work for the FBI.

When he told her "many of my colleagues expressed similar concerns to me but had not vocalized their objections to FBI executive management," she told him his "views represented an extremely small minority of the FBI workforce."

She then shared the emotional experience of fearing for her own life on Jan. 6, 2021, when she was sitting on the seventh floor of the secure J. Edgar Hoover Building, FBI headquarters, after protesters one mile away "seized the Capitol and threatened the United States' democracy."

Sherri-onks.jpg
Special Karen In Charge Sherri Onks

I remember her from a Zoom video. When a Congressman asked her a question, I think about how many FBI agents and informants were at the J6 rally, she refused to answer.

Read the whole thing. It's an amazing scoop by Miranda Divine.

At Just the News, Jim Jordan explains what Friend means about the "case file manipulation."

Apparently he means that all of this "domestic violent extremism activity" is just phone calls and emails in preparation for the January 6th Stop the Steal rally. But they're assigning the cases outside of the DC Office, to local offices, to give the appearance that there are all these "domestic violent extremism" cases popping up all over the country.

No, it's all just the same bullshit case. They're assigning the cases to local offices so that they can put little "Domestic Violent Extremism" pins on a map of the US and show DANGEROUS RIGHT-WING PLOTS everywhere.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) said in a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray that the "manipulative case-file practice" was being conducted by the bureau's Washington field office, which was instructing local FBI offices to open up cases on their books that were in fact simply related to the Capitol breach.

"The FBI's case categorization creates the illusion that threats from DVE are present in jurisdictions across the nation, when in reality they all stem from the same related investigation concerning the actions at the Capitol on January 6," Jordan wrote.

"Such an artificial case categorization scheme allows FBI leadership to misleadingly point to 'significant' increases in DVE threats nationwide," he added.

Dan Bongino's interview with FBI agent Kyle Seraphin is up. In the below clip, he says two FBI agents have been suspended without pay -- I assume for coming on the second year now -- for merely attending the Trump January 6th rally.

They did nothing illegal.

The FBI just doesn't like Republicans who support Trump. They've decided that's against FBI policy and borderline treason.

86 I don't think I have anything to add that I didn't already put in the Morning Report:

Friend says his concerns are shared with large numbers of rank-and-file FBI agents across the country who believe they are being used as pawns to pursue the political agenda of the bosses... These kinds of abuses .. are a "morale killer" for field agents ...

They are being used as pawns and, per this statement, they know that this is the case. This means they are no longer innocent. They're being used in the service of tyranny, and they are knowingly complying with it. They were not drafted. There was no FBI recruitment press-gang going around and forcing men out of their homes and restaurants and bars and other businesses and into the Bureau. They are there by choice, they now know the score, they know what's being done, they know that *they* are the ones doing it as they follow the orders of even rottener men above them - yet they continue doing it.

Their *morale* is low? Have they considered why? Is it possibly because they're rotters and they know it and they continue doing it because however many pieces of silver they get for doing it is otherwise satisfactory?

9 Willowed: On the origin of Reagan's "Dutch" nickname: https://tinyurl.com/2p8txrxp

The nickname “Dutch" was first applied to Ronald Reagan, in childhood, by his father. According to Reagan's autobiographies, he received the nickname soon after his birth, from his father's remark that he looked like “a fat little Dutchman." Reagan has also stated, however, that his father gave him the nickname because of the “Dutch boy" haircut, once popular for little boys, that his mother gave him when he was a toddler. When asked to reconcile the two stories of the nickname's origin, Reagan stated that the haircut strengthened the use of the nickname.

Yep.

Older woman got pushed by the crowd into a group of police.

Instead of letting her through, arresting her, or pushing her back they proceeded to beat her to death with a baton.

Friend says his concerns are shared with large numbers of rank-and-file FBI agents across the country who believe they are being used as pawns to pursue the political agenda of the bosses... These kinds of abuses .. are a “morale killer” for field agents ...
++++
They are being used as pawns and, per this statement, they know that this is the case. This means they are no longer innocent. They're being used in the service of tyranny, and they are knowingly complying with it. They were not drafted. There was no FBI recruitment press-gang going around and forcing men out of their homes and restaurants and bars and other businesses and into the Bureau. They are there by choice, they now know the score, they know what's being done, they know that *they* are the ones doing it as they follow the orders of even rottener men above them - yet they continue doing it.

Their *morale* is low? Have they considered why? Is it possibly because they're rotters and they know it and they continue doing it because however many pieces of silver they get for doing it is otherwise satisfactory?

Now they want to expand the restricted area to include areas that were never restricted? So I guess they are doubling down because they think their political persecution of Trump supporters is going so well.

With the various accusations against Trump, Kavanaugh, etc. and "well, the seriousness of the crime" and "abundance of evidence" justifications for urging action before anything has been proven.

So no, I doubt she or anyone else in the FBI believes in innocent until proven guilty. It's now: assert guilt and then go straight to punishment.

With no more prompting, the Party media organs start yammering nonstop about railway sabotage. And the State Security organs pick up the baton, and start rooting out these vile wreckers left and right.

Suddenly you're hearing about it everywhere! You had never noticed this sabotage before, but now, you can see, it's endemic.

So she just had one of my underlings do it instead, while I was out of state, testifying on our program before another state's legislature. When I found out, I ordered it stopped and reported it. I followed the rules and was almost immediately demoted and ostracized. Filed a whistle- blower complaint. Sat for a year in a cube, largely unspoken to. Then "reorganized" out of a job after the fire burned down. Everyone sees this and knows this. I lost my career and house, had to go on public assistance to feed my family. It's not so easy.

Go back to the Bundy Ranch incident. After that the FBI sent a couple of agents to the ranch posing as documentary filmmakers, who were later with the Bundy's son during the Idaho standoff. It was the filmmaker who suggested they do target practice for some good footage -- and then that shooting activity was used to justify the authorities moving in.

Or the undercover FBI agent who egged on the two ISIS dudes who attempted to kill Pam Gellar in Garland, Texas.

330 "The FBI just doesn't like Republicans who support Trump. They've decided that's against FBI policy and borderline treason."

Graham in the Kavanaugh testimony "Americans who collaborate with the enemy can be considered enemy combatants" ... and can be judged in a military tribunal.

Did FBI collaborate with (fake or not) Russian assets to give the Trump campaign the appearance of "Trump/Russia"? Did they collaborate with China to cover up the Biden/BigGuy graft?

idk, that treason term supposedly requires U.S. to be at war, but indeed we are on a "war footing" .. against "terrorism". imo the FBI is instigating the greatest terrorism, but with whom are they collaborating, besides the seditious Dems and GOPe?

idk ... go halfway thru this video to see Graham talking to Kavanaugh (confirmation hearings) about military tribunals. What Graham was trying to set up idk, but the globalists are our enemies, Fauci and (?) collaborated with China on gain of function weapon ... FBI is up to its eyeballs in sedition ... whether or not treason applies.

It seemed to lack the disciplining effect one had hoped for.

But in retrospect that's not surprising. You have a Congress that has abolished most politics, except for a few headline items (rarely if ever on the pressing actual problems of the country). You have a supine/dishonest/sub-mediocre "opposition" party. You have an electorate trapped variously by the lack of any real choice/their own default tribalism and ignorance and caution.

350 The California Air Resources Board (CARB) is considering new regulations to ban the sale of all diesel semi-trucks by 2040 to fight climate change and rectify a legacy of racist practices, according to a CARB report released on Aug. 30.

The proposal would require medium and heavy-duty trucks entering ports and railyards to be fully electric by 2035, according to the report. CARB believes that such freight vehicles should be banned because the diesel emissions that come from such vehicles disproportionately affect low-income and minority communities due to racist zoning policies.

I've actually heard that too. The problem we have isn't really the specific process but the people in charge. By CR or regular budgetary order, it's about graft and power seeking. This is why I don't really expect a federal GOP Congress in 2023 to do much of anything good. They could destroy the administrative state in a year, hurting it so badly that they don't get up for a generation, but there is no political will in Congress that can lead to that. Our political class is largely just the worst.

However, individual bills per department is better than one CR for everything that you must vote for no matter what or you hate grandma. It's a minor step in the right direction.

That works both ways, though. At least forty years of inertia was required to get here. If the Epstein State is as incompetent at quashing revolution as they are at managing economies and waging ear against the nascent SCO, their loss could result in a much better country than the one we had.

It really doesn't matter if you or I, similarly situated, would muster the courage to do right. It's the fact that to to do right is right. This used to be a hallmark of masculinity. But masculinity has been defined down to bro culture and largely condemned.

Trump had the power. The big problem is he has not shown he implemented that power for those documents while he was President. Original to PDJT personal file, copies to Presidential File, cover page on the document, and copies to all distributees listed on the document.

418 Prosecutors are bound by Brady. Cops are not.

Prosecutors have to turn over exculpatory evidence to defendants. Cops are free to lie to arrestees, interviewees, and suspects. Cops do not have to tell you the truth, treat you fairly, or be honest and above board with you if they think you know something.

If a cop is talking to you, they think you did something wrong or they think you know what happened with someone who did something wrong. And they're free to lie to you to extract that from you.

If a cop is talking to you, they are not trying to extract exculpatory evidence from you. They're trying to find evidence against you. They're trying to get you to inculpate yourself.

Of course, that Virginia governor was a Republican (Bob McDonnell) and the case was laughed out of the Supreme Court for its ridiculous and politically-expedient theory of public corruption, but apparently that kind of work gets one a commendation and promoted up the FBI ladder with haste these days. The FBI is not salvageable.

They took the site over and made 150K dollars worth of upgrades, if I remember, and increased it's traffic. They claimed to have did this as a better way to catch child predators.
