    Americans were astonished two months ago after newly unsealed internal FBI notes taken by the agency’s former assistant director of counterintelligence, Bill Priestap, showed top bureau officials discussing strategy ahead of their January 24, 2017 interview of General Michael Flynn. FBI officials were debating the best way they could set him up in a perjury trap. Several days later, sources familiar with the Durham investigation told Fox News that John Durham had reviewed the Flynn documents and was disturbed that no whistleblowers came forward early on. Considering that there were more than a few officials who had to be aware...
  • Rebekah Jones’ firing is the COVID clickbait the media dreams of – but it’s all fake

    Dozens of media outlets, both in Florida and nationally, published the sensational story of Dr. Rebekah Jones, a state Department of Health employee who was fired by the administration of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, a Trump ally, after – she says – she refused to manipulate data to support the governor’s plan to reopen the state. But a deeper look at the underlying facts expose a less sensational, yet all-too-common narrative: a media feeding frenzy caused by a deep-seated desire to report on scandal and cover-ups, which Rebekah Jones’ claims delivered – if only they were true. They are not....
  • Vincent Cefalu: Author of Ratsnakes, Fast and Furious and Project Gunrunner Whistleblower

    A must listen to inteview. On this special episode of the Resistance Library Podcast, Sam Jacobs speaks with the author and former ATF agent, Vincent Cefalu. Vincent Cefalu is best known as the primary whistleblower who exposed Operation Fast and Furious and Project Gunrunner to the American public -- but that’s not how he wants to be remembered. Cefalu is a curious figure, one who strongly believes in the mission of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and for reasons that are not easily dismissed by the same canned arguments we’ve all spouted at one time or another. A...
  • 'Coup has started,' whistleblower's attorney said in 2017 posts calling for impeachment

    Mark Zaid, one of the attorneys representing the whistleblower at the center of the Democrats' ongoing impeachment inquiry, tweeted conspicuously in January 2017 that a "coup has started" and that "impeachment will follow ultimately." Then, in July 2017, Zaid remarked, "I predict @CNN will play a key role in @realDonaldTrump not finishing out his full term as president."

    A highly influential coronavirus antibody study was funded in part by David Neeleman, the JetBlue Airways founder and a vocal proponent of the idea that the pandemic isn’t deadly enough to justify continued lockdowns. That’s according to a complaint from an anonymous whistleblower, filed with Stanford University last week and obtained by BuzzFeed News, about the study conducted by the famous scientist John Ioannidis and others. The complaint cites dozens of emails, including exchanges with the airline executive while the study was being conducted. The study — released as a non-peer-reviewed paper, or preprint, on April 17 — made headlines...

    President Barack Obama’s Treasury Department regularly surveilled retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn’s financial records and transactions beginning in December 2015 and well into 2017, before, during and after when he served at the White House as President Donald Trump’s National Security Director, a former senior Treasury Department official, and veteran of the intelligence community, told the Star Newspapers. “I started seeing things that were not correct, so I did my own little investigation, because I wanted to make sure what I was seeing was correct” she said. “You never want to draw attention to something if there is...

    A former supervisory special agent for the Drug Enforcement Administration is suing the Justice Department and DEA for forcing his early retirement from the agency in "retaliation" for whistleblower complaints he raised during his ongoing battle with a brain tumor. In his complaint, Eric Katz describes a “hostile work environment, unauthorized sharing of medical information” as well as “disability discrimination” and workplace retaliation. According to the complaint, filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, DEA violated the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 through “intentional manipulation of the Equal Employment Opportunity process, as it relates identification of and...

    President Trump took aim at CBS News and its flagship news magazine program, "60 Minutes," on Sunday after the program interviewed whistleblower Rick Bright, former head of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA). In a tweet, the president excoriated CBS and its "third place anchor, @NorahODonnell," whom he accused of "doing everything in their power to demean our Country, much to the benefit of the Radical Left Democrats." "Tonight they put on yet another Fake “Whistleblower”, a disgruntled employee who supports Dems, fabricates stories & spews lies. @60Minutes report was incorrect, which they couldn’t care less about.

    Representative Jim Jordan requested the US State Department under Mike Pompeo to turn over documents related to Obama Deep State employee Eric Ciaramella and Ukrainian firm Burisma. Sara Carter reported overnight: Republicans are demanding that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo turn over a broad scope of unredacted Obama-Biden State Department documents pertaining to the corrupt Ukrainian company that was at the center of the impeachment inquiry earlier this year against President Donald Trump. In a document sent to Pompeo, Jordan wrote: “I write regarding documents that the State Department recently released pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA),” stated...

    The past week has seen a resurgence of anti-Trump whistleblowing. It should be no surprise to anyone that the federal whistleblower statute was passed during the second term of Barack Obama by a Democrat-controlled Senate--S.743 - Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act of 2012. President Obama, an alleged legal scholar, militarized the Whistleblower Act like no previous administration. Liz Hempowicz, director of public policy at the Project on Government Oversight said that under the Obama administration there was complete misuse to target whistleblowers and to create an example of these individuals who came forward to blow the whistle on really serious intelligence...

    The Week Via Yahoo News ^ | 05/14/2020 | Tim O'Donnell
    There may be more to Dr. Rick Bright's story, Politico reports. Bright, the former director of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority who was leading the country's coronavirus vaccine development, filed a whistleblower complaint earlier this month claiming, among other things, that he was transferred to another position because he refused to cave to Trump administration pressure to push hydroxychloroquine, a potential, but unproven coronavirus treatment favored by the president. But some current and former BARDA staffers have actually pointed to the institution's work environment as another possible reason for the move. "This type of abuse creates a highly...

    It was Jan. 22, a day after the first case of covid-19 was detected in the United States, and orders were pouring into Michael Bowen’s company outside Fort Worth, some from as far away as Hong Kong. Bowen’s medical supply company, Prestige Ameritech, could ramp up production to make an additional 1.7 million N95 masks a week. He viewed the shrinking domestic production of medical masks as a national security issue, though, and he wanted to give the federal government first dibs. “We still have four like-new N95 manufacturing lines,” Bowen wrote that day in an email to top administrators...

    Republicans in the House and Senate introduced legislation this week to have the street in front of the Chinese Embassy in Washington, D.C., renamed Li Wenliang Plaza to honor the Wuhan-based doctor-turned-whistleblower who had early on sounded the alarm on coronavirus. “The Chinese Government attempted to silence Dr. Li Wenliang who, at great personal risk, warned about the danger of Coronavirus,” Wyoming Republican Rep. Liz Cheney said in a statement Thursday. Li was among eight doctors who were reprimanded by the Chinese government for warning people against the threat of the coronavirus. Li was later exonerated by Chinese officials.

    A Trump administration health official said in a whistleblower complaint Tuesday that top officials within the Department of Health and Human Services “pressured” him for years to award contracts based on “political connections and cronyism.” Dr. Rick Bright, former head of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) — the government’s top vaccine procurer — was removed from his role on April 20 and reassigned to a narrower role at the National Institutes of Health. Bright, who ran BARDA since 2016, initially said his removal stemmed from “clashes with political leadership” over his resistance to the promotion of anti-malarial...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Calls mounted Thursday for an investigation into the ouster of a senior government scientist who says he's being punished for opposing widespread use of an unproven drug President Donald Trump touted as a remedy for COVID-19. Rick Bright, former director of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority, says he was summarily removed from his job earlier this week and reassigned to a lesser role because he resisted political pressure to allow widespread use of hydroxychloroquine, a malaria drug favored by Trump. On Thursday, House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone, D-N.J., joined in calling for...

    Ever since a “senior official in the Trump administration” penned an anonymous 2018 New York Times column attacking President Trump as unfit for office, Washington has been engrossed in a high-stakes whodunit. After an exhaustive investigation, the White House believes it’s cracked the case, identifying Trump's turncoat as his former deputy national security adviser, Victoria Coates, according to people familiar with the internal probe. Rather than fire Coates, the White House has quietly transferred her to the Department of Energy, where she awaits special assignment in Saudi Arabia -- far from the president. Trump effectively demoted Coates just four months...
