On Thursday, America First Legal (AFL) released an explosive report claiming that anti-Trump agents in Washington, D.C. in the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) unfairly targeted President Donald Trump’s potential appointees by reporting false, unsubstantiated, and derogatory information to the Senate.
The report outlines how all of President Trump’s candidates for presidential appointments were required to face a “broken” federal background investigation, also known as the FBI’s “BI” process, which violated the Privacy Act and the Paperwork Reduction Act.
“Politically biased agents in the Washington, D.C. field office tanked potential appointees by selectively reporting unsubstantiated, derogatory information while disregarding the mitigation procedures required by the FBI’s Manual of Investigative Operations and Guidelines (MIOG),” AFL reports.
Under President Joe Biden’s administration, the Office of Legal Policy at the Department of Justice rescinded the regulations to protect Biden’s appointees from the broken BI process.
According to AFL, the biased process was removed under Biden “to protect individuals subject to the BI process, reopening the abuse that occurred when President Clinton accessed information about his political enemies during ‘Filegate.’”
The report outlines how the FBI was used to smear Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his Senate confirmation process by investigating, at the request of Democrats, phony accusations of Kavanaugh committing inappropriate activities when he was a minor against Kavanaugh.
“After Justice Kavanaugh was confirmed with no findings of wrongdoing, Senate Democrats determined that the FBI supplemental investigation was ‘fake’ and that ‘proper oversight’ must be made into how thoroughly the FBI investigated Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearing,” the report reads.
“Several of President Trump’s nominees, including Representative Darrell Issa, Representative Ronny Jackson, Judge Sul Ozerden, Jeffrey Byard, and William Bryan were denied confirmations on the basis of FBI BI issues,” the report adds.
The AFL report covers new rules put in place to prevent the “politicization of privacy to spy on political enemies” by the Department of Justice’s Office of Legal Policy (OLP) after the Clinton administration.
Terrifyingly, under President Biden, these protections have been rescinded.
“The OLP revoked such regulations that were “designed to protect individuals subject to the BI process. The Privacy Act of 1974 establishes a code of practices governing the collection and dissemination of information of individuals by federal agencies,” The Epoch Times reports.
“The White House and the FBI can now disclose such background investigations outside of the Executive Branch without any notice,” The Epoch Times added.
This comes after Special Counsel John Durham’s May report concluded that the DOJ and FBI “failed to uphold their mission of strict fidelity to the law” in its investigation between Trump and Russia. Trump has long claimed as such, referring to the investigation as a “witch hunt” numerous times on his social media accounts.
"I, and much more importantly, the American public have been victims of this long-running and treasonous charade started by the Democrats — started by Comey," Trump said in an interview with Fox News. "There must be a heavy price to pay for putting our country through this."
