The FBI‘s corruption runs deep.
On Friday, one of their agents was escorted from FBI headquarters amid allegations from a whistleblower that he showed political bias in handling certain investigations that were ‘politically sensitive.’
FBI agent Tim Thibault was the man behind the affidavit to raid Mar-a-Lago.
He’s been accused of hiding the partisan nature of the evidence against President Donald Trump from his superiors.
It goes deeper than that though.
Thibault, who has connections to both the Clintons and the Obamas, is also the man who tried to close the probe into Hunter Biden just before the 2020 election.
Eyewitnesses saw Thibault escorted from the building Friday.

Timothy Thibault, a top-level FBI agent who had been under fire for his role in investigations regarding President Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, resigned late last week and was walked out of the FBI, two U.S. officials confirmed. But these officials also said that Thibault had reached retirement age, and they added that all of those who retire hand over their badge and gun and are escorted out of the building.
Thibault, who worked in the FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C., had recently been removed from his position as assistant special agent in charge at the FBI’s Washington Field Office, which covers all of the District of Columbia and Northern Virginia.
Thibault came under fire earlier this year from Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley who had accused him of “improper conduct” in the Hunter Biden investigation, alleging that Thibault had tried to close the probe. The probe into Hunter Biden’s business practices, run by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Delaware, is ongoing.
Grassley said in late July that “highly credible” whistleblowers had approached a senior Senate Republican and alleged a widespread effort within the FBI to downplay or discredit negative information about Hunter Biden. He cited a 2020 FBI intelligence assessment that was “used by an FBI headquarters team to improperly discredit negative Hunter Biden information as disinformation.” He continued, “Based on allegations, verified and verifiable derogatory information on Hunter Biden was falsely labeled as disinformation.”

Reminder, according to a whistleblower, Thibault shut down investigative activity related to Hunter Biden and also sought to pad the FBI’s number of “domestic violent extremism” cases. https://t.co/KLsE5cTN6W

Our friends at the New York Post have more on Thibault’s efforts to protect Hunter Biden:
In a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray in July, Grassley said Thibault and FBI supervisory intelligence analyst Brian Auten were allegedly involved in “a scheme” to “undermine derogatory information connected to Hunter Biden by falsely suggesting it was disinformation.”

Thibault also allegedly tried to kill off a valid avenue of investigation of possible Hunter Biden criminality until at least one month before the November 2020 election, according to Grassley.
“Thibault allegedly ordered the matter closed without providing a valid reason as required by FBI guidelines … [and] subsequently attempted to improperly mark the matter in FBI systems so that it could not be opened in the future,” Grassley wrote.
It was the same month The Post first started reporting on Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop, which included troves of emails related to his shady overseas business dealings.

Based on the date of this tweet, this was exactly the same time the FBI (likely Thibault himself) directed FaceBook to censor the Hunter laptop as Russian disinformation.

Becker News shared more details, including the role of Jay Bratt, another top counterintelligence official:
“Sources told RealClearInvestigations that Jay Bratt, the top counterintelligence official in Justice’s national security division, who happens to be a Democratic National Committee donor, has been coordinating the Mar-a-Lago investigation with Alan Kohler, who heads the FBI’s counterintelligence division,” Sperry adds.
The critical thing to note about Bratt, as was noted in an anonymous tip from Truth Ninja, is that he was a “resource of the Mueller investigation and worked directly with Andrew Weissman.” Russiagate followers will recall Andrew Weissman, nicknamed as ‘Mueller’s pit bull.”
Jay Bratt played a critical role in preparing the terrain at Mar-a-Lago in June for the FBI raid in August. His names are all over the redacted search warrant affidavit records.
“Bratt, the top counterintelligence official at Justice, traveled to Mar-a-Lago in early June and personally inspected the storage facility while interacting with both Trump and one of his lawyers,” Sperry notes. “Trump allowed the three FBI agents Bratt brought with him to open boxes in the storage room and look through them. They left with some documents. After leaving, Bratt made a request to Trump’s lawyer for increased security at the facility and asked to see surveillance footage from the security cameras. The lawyer complied with the requests.”
“Months went by before the Justice Department took the politically explosive step of sending FBI agents unannounced to Trump’s home, seizing documents, photos, and other items not just from the storage facility but from multiple rooms on the property, including the former president’s office,” Sperry adds.
Special Agent Thibault’s sudden resignation at the FBI is a tacit admission that the Hunter Biden case and the Trump cases are fraught with political partisanship. There must be more than abrupt resignations if the rule of law is ever going to be restored in America.
President Trump gave his response as well:
