President Donald Trump reacted to this week’s shocking FBI whistleblower testimony in Washington, as the House Judiciary Committee and the subcommittee on Weaponization oversaw the release of disturbing data related to internal operations at the bureau.

“Very sad watching what took place today in Congress regarding Whistleblowers and the FBI,” he wrote on Truth Social. “There has never been a time like this in our Country, the complete weaponization of Justice.”

RSBN previously reported that the House Committee had released a report on the whistleblowers’ testimony ahead of their live hearing in D.C., where several agents shared their experiences of alleged abuse at the hands of the FBI’s leadership.

Trump continued, “I am a victim also, but the real victim is the United States of America. Congress must use its purse strings to straighten it out, before it is too late! MAGA 2024[.]”

FBI whistleblower Special Agent Garret O’Boyle, for example, testified on Thursday that the bureau had created “an Orwellian atmosphere that silences opposition and discussion.”

He noted that “bad guys” have begun running parts of the U.S. government, and that these bad actors were making it difficult to serve the nation and protect innocent victims.

FBI Special Agent Stephen Friend also shared his testimony of experiencing alleged abuse from bureau leadership after voicing his concerns regarding departures from standard case management rules. He was also concerned that the FBI was utilizing SWAT teams against those accused of non-violent crimes.

According to GOP’s detailed report, FBI whistleblowers accused the bureau of retaliation, misallocation of resources, and a “systemic culture of unaccountability.”

“That concern and hope for the FBI’s future is fundamentally what motivates these brave whistleblowers: the belief that speaking truth to power, through the right channels, can help to restore the Bureau to what it once was,” the report concluded.
