In Today’s episode of “Moment of Truth,” Saurabh and Nick sit down with FBI Whistleblower Steve Friend, Fellow on Domestic Intelligence and Security Services at the Center for Renewing America, author of “True Blue,” and FBI Special Agent turned whistleblower, to unveil the FBI’s questionable investigations of capitol protestors, how these tactics are not new and date back to the FBI’s origins, and what must be done to fix the FBI.

Amazon Description

As seen on Huckabee. A suspended special agent explains his decision to turn whistleblower and expose FBI politicization and abuse against conservative America.

Stephen Friend had his dream job as an FBI special agent. After nearly a decade of combating violent crime, human trafficking, and child predators, he was reassigned to the FBI’s unprecedented investigation of the political unrest at the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021. Friend soon uncovered efforts by the FBI and Department of Justice to manipulate statistics and exaggerate the nationwide threat of domestic terrorism. Friend spotlighted how the politicized FBI was cooking the books to support an ongoing narrative from the Joe Biden administration to label Donald Trump voters as violent extremists.

Friend witnessed overzealous practices to harass conservative Americans and realized the FBI was turning its investigative processes into a punishment. When the married father of two made his bombshell allegations in a whistleblower disclosure, leaders within the FBI exposed themselves as partisan, ambitious players who insisted that January 6th protestors killed police officers and attempted to seize American democracy. Hell-bent on suppressing Friend from exposing the truth, FBI officials seized his gun and badge and suspended him from working as a special agent.

In this memoir, Friend reflects on the lessons and life experiences that led him to ultimately risk his career to uphold his FBI special agent oath to protect and defend the United States Constitution against all enemies—both foreign and domestic.

How FBI Falsifies Domestic Terrorism

BREAKING: Whistleblower says FBI manipulated Jan. 6 cases to make domestic terrorism appear widespread  5/18/23

A former FBI agent testified before Congress Thursday saying the FBI manipulated data to make domestic terrorism linked to Jan. 6 seem like a nationwide phenomenon instead of an isolated incident.  The revelation came as part of a hearing held by the House Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government where  FBI whistleblowers testified….about abuse and politicization of the FBI. They also testified about backlash they received, even losing their jobs as retaliation for refusing to toe the narrative established by FBI leadership.

Steve Friend, a former FBI special agent who served five years on an FBI SWAT team and five years before that in local law enforcement in Georgia, made the claim about his former agency artificially inflating domestic terrorism data.  “Typically you would investigate Jan. 6 as one case with lots of subjects, but instead the decision was made to open up a separate case for every single individual there… And instead of, on paper, investigating them from the Washington field office, spreading and disseminating those to the field offices around the country, and if the individual lived in that area.”

“In effect…It made it look like there was domestic terrorism cases and activities that were going on around the 56 field offices when…the cases were really all from Washington, D.C., and Washington had a task force that was responsible for calling the shots in all those cases.”

Friend said this is part of a trend for the federal law enforcement agency, adding that the FBI’s National Security Branch “has refocused counterterrorism from legitimate foreign actors to political opponents within our borders.”  The FBI had come under heavy fire for politicization on behalf of democratic interests in recent years. More evidence has emerged that the FBI may have played more of a role in inciting the events of Jan. 6 than previously thought.  A Government Accountability Office report released in February found the FBI and Capitol Police were aware of threats ahead of Jan. 6 but did not do enough about it.

The FBI has also been exposed for working with social media companies to censor Americans online, most notably by urging social media companies to shut down the Hunter Biden laptop story just before the 2020 election.
