The politicization of the FBI is being implemented by the promotion of liberal agents into positions of authority, and the punishment or dismissal of agents who support conservative causes, FBI insiders told The Washington Times.
They say this institutionalizes a liberal bias in the upper ranks of the nation’s premier law enforcement agency.
In one high-profile example, an FBI agent who while on duty demonstrated solidarity with Black Lives Matter marchers in Washington by “taking a knee” as the protesters passed was later rewarded with a promotion to a supervisor rank.
The BLM march in Washington occurred in 2020, when similar protests and riots swept across the country in response to the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Some law enforcement officials began kneeling with BLM protesters, including officers in Austin, Portland, Los Angeles, Coral Gables and Buffalo.
In Washington, among six on-duty agents in full FBI gear who “took a knee” for BLM protesters was a female agent who later was promoted to the No. 2 supervisory post at the Washington Field Office.
