FBI whistleblower Steve Friend shared revelations of the agency’s alleged conduct on Saturday’s “Unfiltered with Dan Bongino” after what he said was his experience.
Friend had been working as a field agent in Florida when he said he noticed “rules were not being followed as they are laid out in our guidance for carrying out investigations” for tracking down January 6 participants.
He said he made a protective disclosure to his supervisor in August 2021 to raise those concerns ahead of arrest-and-search operations on certain subjects.
When asked his thoughts on whether the D.C. central office handing down directives was motivated by politics or some investigative need for this case, Friend said he asked supervisors who said that when they inquired about it, they were told it was to get a “buy-in” from the field.
