President Donald Trump responded to FBI agents asking Congress to issue a subpoena allowing them to speak against James Comey and Andrew McCabe.
“Not surprisingly, the GREAT Men & Women of the FBI are starting to speak out against Comey, McCabe and all of the political corruption and poor leadership found within the top ranks of the FBI,” he tweeted Thursday morning. “Comey was a terrible and corrupt leader who inflicted great pain on the FBI!”

The Daily Caller reviewed detailed Q&A transcripts between special agents and Joe DiGenova, a former U.S. attorney and Trump Administration official. The agents are asking to be subpoenaed to obtain official government whistleblower status because they fear political and professional backlash.
“Every special agent I have spoken to in the Washington Field Office wants to see McCabe prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. They feel the same way about Comey,“ a special agent said. “The administrations are so politicized that any time a Special Agent comes forward as a whistleblower, they can expect to be thrown under the bus by leadership. Go against the Muslim Brotherhood, you’re crushed. Go against the Clintons, you’re crushed.”
As People’s Pundit Daily (PPD) first reported in May of last year, and subsequently reported multiple times, the rank-and-file agents at the bureau are disgusted with the handling of the Clinton email case, the Russia probe and overall politicization under the Obama Administration.
“Activity that Congress is investigating is being stonewalled by leadership and rank-and-file FBI employees in the periphery are just doing their jobs,” a special agent added. “All Congress needs to do is subpoena involved personnel and they will tell you what they know. These are honest people. Leadership cannot stop anyone from responding to a subpoena. Those subpoenaed also get legal counsel provided by the government to represent them.”
Inspector General Michael Horowitz, who has all of D.C. on edge awaiting his internal report on the wrongdoing and corruption, sent a criminal referral for Andrew McCabe to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Washington, D.C. He was fired after a review by Mr. Horowitz determined he lied multiple times, including under Oath.
Mr. McCabe was first removed from his post over misconduct and apparent corruption, but had been trying to ride out the scandals currently at the center of the FBI and DOJ. Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired him just days before his retirement was set to take effect.
President Trump called it a “great day” for the FBI and a “great day for Democracy.”
