FBI whistleblowers seem to have fingered Thibault as the partisan hack protecting Hunter. The FBI, we now know, were recently identified by Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg as the reason Facebook downplayed the laptop story pre-election because the social media company had the impression the laptop story was considered misinformation. But It turns out Thibault has also been involved in some other interesting work on behalf of the agency. Here’s a clip from the FBI Portland twitter account in which Thibault, rather hilariously in hindsight, talks about what the FBI had been doing to combat election fraud.
Just The News and other media outlets are reporting that Tim Thibault — FBI Washington Field Office Assistant Special Agent in Charge — was escorted from bureau premises on Friday (we covered the story here). According to Ben Whedon of JTN, the reported removal of Thibault comes “amid whistleblower allegations that he showed political bias in his handling of politically sensitive investigations.”
