As previously reported, FBI agent Tim Thibault was the man behind the affidavit to raid Mar-a-Lago.
On Friday, Thibault was escorted from FBI headquarters amid allegations from a whistleblower that he showed political bias in handling certain investigations that were ‘politically sensitive.’
He’s been accused of hiding the partisan nature of the evidence against President Donald Trump from his superiors.
Eyewitnesses saw Thibault escorted from the building Friday.

#BREAKING: Timothy Thibault OUT at the FBI.
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

Senator Grassley outed Timothy Thibault last month for his pattern of public partisanship and anti-Trump social media posts.
Thibault was the Assistant Special Agent in Charge (“ASAC”) of the Washington Field Office.
“Thibault was also accused of being involved in the Mar-a-Lago raid, the Hunter Biden computer scandal, and of padding the numbers on domestic terrorism in the US,” The Gateway Pundit noted.
On Tuesday, Thibault’s attorneys released a statement on their client and his career.
His attorneys deny everything!
CBS correspondent Catherine Herridge shared the statement on Twitter:
