An FBI supervisor is blowing the whistle on his own organization, alleging to the Justice Department's chief watchdog and Congress that the bureau has been improperly suspending or revoking the security clearances of agents it believes hold conservative political views.

The new whistleblower's allegations surfaced Tuesday in correspondence obtained by Just the News that was sent to the House and Senate Judiciary Committees and DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, dramatically claiming that as a supervisory special agent he witnessed efforts by senior FBI brass to target employees who supported Donald Trump or opposed COVID-19 vaccines.

"If an FBI employee fit a certain profile as a political conservative, they were viewed as security concerns and unworthy to work at the FBI," the whistleblower's lawyer, Empower Oversight President Tristan Leavitt, wrote Horowitz in requesting an independent investigation.

The supervisory special agent, whose name was redacted from the letters, was in charge of security clearance reviews for all FBI employees on the East Coast and alleged that other agents involved in the process also share his concerns that FBI leadership has been improperly applying a political litmus test to the question of whether employees get their top secret clearance re-approved.
