The F.B.I. wants to fire agents who voluntarily took part in the January 6th protests?
Surely the agency itself sent more agents as undercover provocateurs than agents and employees who willingly took part in the protests as concerned citizens who supported the cause…
According to reports, the bureau wants to fire employees who actually showed up to these protests in good faith…
Aside from the hypocrisy I mentioned earlier, the move is purely political and completely unjust. These were simple protests that erupted into violence because of a few bad actors…more than likely undercover F.B.I. bad actors….
Most people at these protests were peaceful, and the F.B.I. itself confirmed that there was no premeditated violence on the part of Trump supporters—there was no insurrection.
How is this agency, or any other entity, for that matter, going to fire people who did nothing wrong? How can the wrongdoing of a few bad actors cast a negative light on the overwhelmingly peaceful majority?
Take a look:

What are we doing to help Jeremy Brown, a political prisoner, not for his participation in the Jan. 6th event, but because he became a whistleblower against the FBI. Now they want to silence him, and we are his only voice. https://t.co/EjCo3ianRU

The Epoch Times reports:
In a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray, Republicans confirmed reports that the Department of Justice’s Inspector General’s office is considering investigating whether the FBI revoked the security clearances of agents who attended the rally last year.
Republicans in previous letters had argued that revoking their security passes essentially forces them out of a job because clearance is needed to work at the FBI.

Just another of DOJ’s surveillance video of Pelosi’s ‘Entrapment Tour.’ But nothing to see here, please go away.

Reuters previously reported:
Though federal officials have arrested more than 570 alleged participants, the FBI at this point believes the violence was not centrally coordinated by far-right groups or prominent supporters of then-President Donald Trump, according to the sources, who have been either directly involved in or briefed regularly on the wide-ranging investigations.
