(Republican Party News) – A top official with the FBI might be guilty of breaking the law for what one GOP senator is calling “partisan posts” that criticize President Donald Trump and former U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr, according to the Department of Justice’s watchdog.
According to a report from WND, “DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz informed Republican Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley Wednesday that his body will refer assistant FBI special agent Timothy Thibault’s ‘potential violations of the Hatch Act’ to the U.S. Office of Special Counsel (OSC). In May, Grassley urged Horowitz to investigate Thibault “for potential violations of federal regulations and Department guidelines designed to prevent political bias from infecting FBI matters.”
It seems like I remember a time, eons ago, when the FBI was at least somewhat respectable. It was kind of a cool thing to be a special agent. Or maybe I’m just thinking back to my childhood watching The X-Files obsessively.
Anyways, it’s definitely not cool to be part of the agency now. It’s corrupt to the core, a tool in the hands of the Deep State to take down those who disagree with the progressive agenda, having turned on the American people it was supposed to help serve and protect.
“After carefully reviewing the information in your letter, we determined that some of the allegations and conduct you described in your letter implicate potential violations of the Hatch Act, which limits certain political activities of federal employees,” Horowitz stated in the letter he wrote to Grassley. “The U.S. Office of Special Counsel (OSC) is responsible for investigating and prosecuting alleged violations of the Hatch Act.”
“As a result, we have referred the relevant allegations to OSC to review and respond as it deems appropriate,” Horowitz went on to say.
A spokesperson with the bureau spoke with The Daily Caller News Foundation, saying that “any allegations of misconduct are taken seriously and referred to the Inspection division” and noting that “all FBI employees are held to the highest standards of professional and ethical conduct.”
The Hatch Act, which was passed back in 1939, “limits certain political activities of federal employees, as well as some state, D.C., and local government employees who work in connection with federally funded programs,’ according to the OSC. The law is to ensure ‘federal programs are administered in a nonpartisan fashion.”
Grassley also penned a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray, in the month of May with a June 14 deadline to deliver documents that are connected with Thibault and his work for the FBI.
“Thibault, who has overseen ‘the FBI’s most significant federal public corruption investigations,’ has demonstrated ‘a pattern of improper commentary’ on social media with regard to Trump and Barr, Grassley said. Thibault’s LinkedIn network is comprised of ‘current and former FBI personnel’ and he has posted publicly, the senator said,” WND reported.
One of the red flags for Thibault was when he liked a February 2020 opinion piece from the Washington Post on LinkedIn, which made the case that the DOJ should have convicted former Trump campaign adviser and longtime friend, Roger Stone, concerning the Russia probe.
The FBI officials also “liked” another piece from Sept. 2020, which was an article from WaPo that was called, “William Barr Has Gone Rogue.”
“Tom Jones, executive director of the federal watchdog American Accountability Foundation, told TheDCNF that given that ‘public corruption investigations’ are some of the ‘most sensitive’ cases, officials should not act partisan,” WND stated.
“The fact that there are agents who cannot seem to set their political biases aside will have a corrosive effect on public confidence in public corruption investigations for a division that has been struggling to reassure the public for decades of its impartiality,” he went on to say.
Let’s hope this man is held accountable for his actions and is not allowed to be “above the law” simply because he agreed with the leftist narrative about Trump.

FBI will be eliminated when trump comes back, it is rotten to its core. I will be happy to see a minimum of 30% sent to prison, another 30% hung
fbi, doj, cia, ,irs, and other government agencies are so freaking corrupt it is despicable. This country has been sabotaged by the elites, marxsts, chinese, soros and pelosi , schumer, schift and the rest of the jakaz party. We’re living in a banana republik! Take them all out. needs to be a cleansing like never before.!
You’re absolutely 100 percent correct.
I agree 100%. The DOJ especially needs to be cleansed of partisan leaders. Also, we need to end the DHS. It was formed as an answer to 9/11. That was 20 years ago, and it needs to go along with the limitless power the government was given to combat 9/11. It’s now being used to silence anyone who doesn’t go along with the narrative of the Marxist/Commie leaders in charge.
IT’S e just Timothy Thibault that see Federal Charges brought against him but Every single Sum Ban in the FBI , DOJ, CIA but Every Parasite in the FAKE and FRAUDULENT ADMINISTRATION a long with Every DemoRat in the House and the Senate.
AGREE totally with you.!!!!
The entire upper echelon needs to be fired replaced. The Department of Justice, FBI, NSA, CIA, DHS and all the federal law enforcement agencies have become the “brown shirts” of the Progressive Marxist Liberals.
I am a very old man but I can remember when it was SOP for a new President when coming into office received the resignations of all key leadership of many of the bureaus and some times more than just the leadership, offered their resignations and those that wanted to stay reapplied and were interviewed. I agree we should go back to that procedure only with minor changes, key bureaus like the FBI, CIA, DOE, BE REQUIRED TO DO THIS for at least the two top layers of management. Of course the best plan of all to put control of govt. back in the hands of the people, TERM LIITS FOR ALL FED ELECTED OFFICE HOLDERS !
YOU’RE 100% CORRECT!! GET RID OF THEM ALL AND START FROM SCRATCH TO GET SOME REAL AMERICA LOVING PATRIOTS ON BOARD. START WITH THOSE VETS WHO VALIANTLY FOUGHT FOR OUR FREEDOMS!!
Every government agency in our country is corrupt to the core. Again I state for the millionth time our government is no better then China or Russia, our country just gives the illusion to the rest of the world it is.
It sounds to me like the FBI has turned into the Gestapo from Nazi Germany. If that is the case, this country is doomed.
You know the CIA isn’t supposed to work on American soil but look at that track record, along with the DOJ, DOD, IRS and any acronym out there. They hide behind their departments and yes it does seem to be getting much like Nazi Germany and the brown shirts. We need a serious house cleaning from the top down.
It would nice to be rid of FBI
Hutchinson , is a FRAUD ! She said that POTUS Donald J. Trump jumped Forward and tried to grab the Steering wheel in the of the Presidential Lemo and tried to Choak the Driver. But Hutchinson lied about it from the Beginning . Hutchinson was Never around or in the LEMO there for she Bold Face Lied to Authorities (Secret Service). The thing is a FARCE under Direction of Butt Ugly Prune Face PIGLOSI.
So is agent Thibault tne new sacrificial lamb for all that is wrong with the FBI?
Not that i would want to be in his shoes but im sure his actions are merely a small representations of the problems within the agence as a whole. If the agency is going to dust off its tarnished image lets start with AG Garland and Director Wray. its very disturbing that both agencies have become politically weaponized.The total loss of neutrality must be as demoralizing for many good agents as it is for the everyday citizen and elected representative. Perhaps a top down review and houscleaning is in order starting with those in charge the trust needs to be restored and i just dont see it happening with who is in charge
If only politics could be kept out of government (LOL).
The major disadvantage of all folks in all areas of government is that they’re imperfect humans, some more imperfect than others. If only there were some practical way to keep the excessively self-focused James Comeys, Kamala Harrises and Quid Pro Joes out of positions of big or small responsibility, America wouldn’t be in such danger of losing its already diminishing potential as the most promising political entity since Cain decided to take charge and redistribute brother Abel’s wealth.
They need to investigate Mueller, McCabe, Page, and Strzok not only for VIOLATION of the HATCH ACT but TREASON. They should also go after Comey for both those Crimes as well as LYING to Congress.
Please don’t insult our collective intelligence with such fairy tale scenarios as you have. The Demorat apparatchiks, at a level of 85% or more, within any governmental organization would allow no real serious consequences to any of theirs.
It’s inevitable that, since only we imperfect humans qualify to serve as FBI employees, and because none of us are immune to vanity, selfishness and stupidity (especially Democrats – LOL), we need to monitor the Bureau even more carefully than we do entities that don’t have the power to harm the country out of woke authoritarianism. Conservatism, while needing to accommodate necessary improvements, will never be as ruinous to this marvelous America thing as liberalism, which has routinely come to stand for “change for the sake of self-stroking change.”
These promises might sound hopeful but I will need to see it to believe it. ALSO..why is just one man’s neck on the line…He might be bad, but I doubt he has caused all this garbage alone!!!
This all began with Obama & he’s in office/closet for the third time!!!!!!! He needs to be exposed & kicked out for good!
Oh, look–the corrupt, WEAPONIZED-By-The-Conniving-Demmunists FBI has offered up a sacrificial lamb to be blamed for ALL of their unAmerican, unconstitutional CORRUPTION. Having offered up this SINGLE scapegoat, ALL investigations into their malfeasance will quietly be DROPPED, and they’ll go back to “business as usual” spying on and violating the rights of law-abiding Americans who committed the SIN of disagreeing with the power-mad, America-hating Demmunists who STOLE control of our government.
HOPE FB & OTHERS DO NOT BLOCK THIS! THE FBI LEADERS & DOJ ALONG WITH THE DEMOCRATS IN WHITE HOUSE & CONGRESS (INCLUDING THE RINOS) SHOULD BE UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR TREASON! AMERICAN CITIZEN DESERVE THE ACCOUNTABILY! THEY DID NOT WIN THE 2020 ELECTION! ALL THOSE WHO AIDED THEM ARE ALSO TO BE HELD ACOUNTABLE! WE MUST DRAIN THE SWAMP WITHOUT EXCEPTIONS!
LET’S HOPE THAT WE HAVE ENOUGH VOTING CITIZENS TO ELECT PRESIDENT TRUMP IN 2024
All I can say is, all those who voted for demorats yesterday deserve what they get in the blue states. Could not believe they reelected Hochul, Whitmer, Newsome, etc. They must love high inflation, high grocery costs, high gas prices. None of those who voted for the dem clowns should complain anymore. You deserve what you get.
Embarrassing to say these ways of socialism are only the beginnings to the nullification and despairs in humanity.
May all these Communist reap what they have sown! It will not be too soon. Clean up the election processes too!
