The FBI offered bonuses as an incentive for particular agents to target conservatives, conservative organizations, or individual Americans who disagreed with the progressive establishment, said Rep. Matt Gaetz on Newsmax.
The Weaponization of the Federal Government
In an interview with Eric Boiling, Gaetz said FBI whistleblower Steve Friend revealed certain executives obtained bonuses for increasing cases on conservative figures before the House Judiciary Select Subcommittee.
Gaetz explained this type of twisted procedure involving cataloging cases endangers the American people. The FBI has become more focused on amassing cases based on political motives.

The Florida congressmen pointed out how being an FBI agent involves prosecuting actual criminals, not checking off boxes approved by former FBI director Christopher Wray.
Further, Gatez made the claim whistleblower Marcus Allen’s testimony was sufficient evidence that Wray lied about FBI agents being presented on January 6, 2021.
During the testimony, Allen mentioned FBI agents at the Boston field house could not utilize certain footage because Washington said it would expose sources the agency wished to keep concealed.

Gaetz mentioned whistleblowers like Allen are facing relentless attacks on the media-intelligence complex.
These attacks are happening since they have questioned material put out by the FBI, making them supposed racists or extremists in their book.
Both Friend and fellow whistleblower Garret O’Boyle testified before the House Judiciary Committee. Amid this happening, the former FBU agents called the current state of the agency cancerous and rife with abuse and misconduct.
The FBI’s lack of integrity is not just because of the Durham Report or whistleblowers Gaetz said. It is also because of CIA director Michael Morrell’s collaboration with other intelligence executives to frame Hunter Biden’s laptop as a Russian coopt.
Matt Gaetz, along with other Republicans, such as Josh Hawley and Jim Jordan, have called for the complete overhaul and restructuring of the FBI.This article appeared in The Political Globe and has been published here with permission.
