A top FBI special agent was reportedly forced to resign from his position over allegations of political bias. Critics claimed he shielded Hunter Biden from investigations into his controversial history during the 2020 presidential election to help the Biden campaign.
According to Fox News, FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge Timothy Thibault resigned from the bureau on Friday and was seen being escorted from the FBI’s Washington field office.
Two “headquarters-looking types” walked Thibault, a 25-year FBI veteran, from the building following his resignation.
The move came after explosive allegations of political bias that used his position to help Biden’s presidential campaign by running interference on Hunter Biden’s laptop and other potential investigations.
Thibault’s name first went public when Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-I.A., named him in a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland in July. Grassley said whistleblowers had identified Thibault as one of the FBI insiders that failed to follow “strict substantial factual predication guidelines to open an investigation.”
“Thibault allegedly ordered the [investigation into Hunter Biden allegations] closed without providing a valid reason as required by FBI guidelines” and he “subsequently attempted to improperly mark the matter in FBI systems so that it could not be opened in the future,” Grassley wrote.
“As you are aware, Assistant Special Agent in Charge Tim Thibault is not the only politically biased FBI agent at the Washington Field Office,” Grassley wrote at the time.
“The FBI answers to Congress and the American people,” he warned.
Fox News reported that Thibault was not involved in the Mar-a-Lago raid, an unprecedented legal move that shocked the political world and has caused a firestorm of accusations of political bias against the FBI.
Trump has repeatedly used social media to blast the bureau with numerous accusations of corruption and bias since the raid, and went so far Tuesday morning as to call for a “new Election, NOW!”
The Presidential Election was BADLY & IRREPARABLY TAINTED by the FBI’s FAKE description of the “Laptop from Hell” to Facebook & the LameStream Media – & for MANY other reasons as well. Declare the rightful winner, or hold a new Election, NOW! Our Country, which is failing badly, knows the “score,” and will never accept Criminal Election Interference. The FBI just fired its Special Agent In Charge of this outrageous & very illegal assault on the Constitution of the United States of America!
Prior to his resignation, Thibault was among the top leaders of the Washington field office, Fox News reported.
