Democrat Reports “Great Timing” After Book Deal Discovery

Last Thursday Democrats attacked the FBI whistleblowers who were called to testify before the House’s Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government.

The Democrats on the committee used their questions to attack the credibility of the witnesses, and even claim that they weren’t real whistleblowers.

Democrat Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida even accused one of the witnesses of using the hearing to promote his book, Mediaite reported.

While questioning former FBI agent Steve Friend, Wasserman Schultz suggested that the FBI was right to suspend Friend. She cited all of the times on Twitter that he called for the FBI to be defunded and urged sheriff’s offices not to cooperate with the FBI. She claimed that his remarks were “reckless” and would allow more criminals on the streets.

Wasserman Schultz also claimed that Friend was attempting to profit off of his appearance before the committee. Accusing him of “engaging in the self-promotion” of his upcoming book, Wasserman Schultz noted the timing of his testimony right before his book tour starts.

Meanwhile, California Democrat Linda Sanchez berated and attacked FBI whistleblower Marcus Allen for retweeting a tweet that claimed Nancy Pelosi “staged” the January 6 riot.

The only problem is that the Twitter account Sanchez was citing does not belong to Marcus Allen. When Allen repeatedly told her that the Twitter account wasn’t his, rather than accept defeat, Sanchez attacked him for interrupting her. Finally, when Sanchez appeared to accept that she got the wrong guy, she asked Allen if he agreed with the tweet. He did not.

Delegate Stacey Plaskett of the US Virgin Islands, the ranking Democrat on the subcommittee, accused the Republicans of only inviting the whistleblowers to “attack, discredit, and ultimately dismantle the FBI.”

Plaskett noted that the former agents all lost their security clearances and claimed that they were a “threat to our national security.” She accused them of “malice” and “ignorance” and claimed that they were putting their “partisan agenda” ahead of their oath.
