Suspended FBI agents Garret O’Boyle, Steve Friend, and Marcus Allen testified Thursday before the House Select Committee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government to detail the alleged ‘abuses of power’ by the federal bureau’s leadership ranging from discrimination against conservatives to inflation of domestic terrorism statistics.
O’Boyle testified that he was transferred across the country only to be suspended on his first day of work.
According to his testimony, the FBI’s actions forced his family to beg and borrow warm coats for their children because the family’s belongings were locked in an FBI-controlled storage facility.

“They (FBI) ordered me to report to the new unit when our youngest daughter was two weeks old,” said O’Boyle. “Then, on my first day on the new assignment, they suspended me. Rendering my family homeless. They refused to release our goods, including our clothes, for weeks. All I wanted to do is serve my country by stopping bad guys and protecting the innocent. So to my chagrin, bad guys have begun running parts of the government, making it difficult to continue to serve this nation and protect the innocent.”
“Why do you think they came down on you so darn hard? Deep down. What do you think their motivation is?” asked Rep. Jim Jordan.
“They don’t want people who raise valid questions to their chain of command,” O’Boyle replied.
“They want to send a message, don’t they? They want to make you an example. Don’t they? And they don’t care. They want to send that message so hard, so strong. They don’t care what you deserve.”
The GOP House Committee tweeted, “The FBI has retaliated against brave whistleblowers for exposing the abuses they’ve seen at the FBI. There’s no doubt that retaliation, and Democrat attacks on their character, will chill future whistleblowers.”
To date, the Committee and Select Subcommittee have received whistleblower testimony from several current and former FBI employees who chose to risk their careers to expose abuses and misconduct in the FBI, according to the House Committee.
