According to fresh Congressional testimony to the House Judiciary Committee by an FBI whistleblower, FBI leadership has been pushing their field agents to behave in draconian ways against the American people. And that proof will likely be presented again at a forthcoming committee hearing on the “Weaponization of Government”.
In an official Whistleblower document, freshly retired FBI supervisory intelligence analyst George Hill said that agents in Boston were unlawfully pressed by Washington to launch criminal charges on 140 persons who had just taken a bus ride to the Jan. 6 march in Washington.
The agents declined since there was no proof the guests committed any crime, according to the whistleblower, and Just The News, which published further details:
“Hill’s testimony to the House Judiciary Committee also raised new civil liberty concerns about the FBI’s Jan. 6 probe, including whether the Bureau mined Americans’ bank records without court authority and whether the agency possesses video footage it is refusing to release because it identifies undercover agents and human sources who were at the U.S. Capitol that fateful day.
Hill, a military veteran and longtime analyst for the National Security Agency (NSA) and FBI who retired last year from the Bureau’s Boston field office, told Just the News on Wednesday night that he disclosed concerns earlier this week to the House Judiciary Committee during a transcribed deposition, including that the Bureau analyzed banking data without evidence of a crime — simply to find Americans who traveled to Washington around the time of Jan. 6 or who owned a gun.”
Hill testified before Congress that supervisors in the Washington field office were pressured to open cases, first on seven people who were identified in a sweep of bank records provided by Bank of America, and then on the larger group of 140 Americans who paid to take bus rides to Washington on the 6th.
“There’s no evidence of a crime being committed here,” he said during a wide-ranging interview on the “Just the News, No Noise” television show. “We cannot open up preliminary investigations on someone for using a financial instrument in the District. And so they pushed back, and Boston did not take any action on those names.”

Just The News coverage went on:
“Hill also said the Washington field office, which led the Jan. 6 probe, did not react well to the refusal, escalating up the chain of command, but at each step of the process the Boston office held its ground. “Getting on a bus and participating in a political rally is not predication for a crime or a preliminary investigation,” he said, explaining why Boston resisted.”
Just the News reported on Wednesday night that House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said Hill’s material “gave a vital roadmap for his select subcommittee’s probe into possible weaponization of law enforcement organizations like the FBI.”

“I appreciate this brave whistleblower coming forward,” Jordan said in an interview. “He’s worked in the military and then as an FBI agent. And he gave us a lot of valuable information that will be the foundation for our weaponization investigation going forward.” CONTINUE READING…
