House GOP report alleges misconduct, politicization at FBI, DOJ

By

House Republicans released a report detailing whistleblower allegations of FBI misconduct and politicization at the highest levels of the Department of Justice (DOJ).  Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee said Friday’s report is “the first comprehensive accounting of the FBI’s problems to date, which undermine the FBI’s fundamental law-enforcement mission.”

“The Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the stewardship of Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland, is broken,” the report said. “The problem lies not with the majority of front-line agents who serve our country, but with the FBI’s politicized bureaucracy.”

Key takeaways from the report, according to a news release from House Judiciary Republicans, include:

“Americans deserve to have confidence that the enormous power and reach of federal law enforcement will be used fairly and free of any indication of politicization,” the report said. “Too much is at stake to sacrifice the trust and accountability in our federal law-enforcement apparatus.”

House Judiciary Committee ranking member Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, has spoken about several of the allegations of misconduct and politicization within the FBI and DOJ for months. He and Senate Judiciary Committee ranking member Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, have sent letters to both agencies’ leadership demanding answers. Those letters are contained within the report.
