Representative Jim Jordan's hearing on the politicization of the FBI descended into chaos as congressional lawmakers sparred over transparency concerns and questioned the legitimacy of the "whistleblower" witnesses who spoke before the House weaponization panel.
On Thursday, the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, which Jordan chairs, held a hearing to examine alleged abuses within the FBI. The House panel heard from two suspended FBI agents and one former agent, who claimed that their employer retaliated against them for speaking out about the bureau.
The FBI denied those claims. The bureau told Newsweek that it "has not and will not retaliate against individuals who make protected whistleblower disclosures."
