The federal government is no friend to the common man. But it’s even worse than you could imagine.
And this FBI Whistleblower sounded a terrifying alarm about the US Government.
Garret O’Boyle, an FBI whistleblower, told the House Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government that “this government will crush” not just individuals who “expose the truth about things that they are doing that are wrong,” but also their families.
One of four witnesses who appeared on Thursday, O’Boyle, stated that he had dedicated his life to the service of the United States.
He served in the United States military, including deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, before joining the FBI and working his way up to the rank of special agent.
After returning to the United States, O’Boyle worked as a police officer in Wisconsin while earning his criminology and law degrees from Marquette University, according to Committee chair Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH).
He “was suspended without pay after he raised concerns with his chain of command and then made disclosures to Congress,” as the Hill reported.
O’Boyle testified that he was suspended only after the FBI “allowed [him] to accept orders to a new position halfway across the country.”
As he put it:
In weaponized fashion, the FBI allowed me to accept orders to a new position halfway across the country. They allowed us to sell my family’s home. They ordered me to report to the new unit when our youngest daughter was only two weeks old. Then, on my first day on the new assignment, they suspended me; rendering my family homeless and refused to release our household goods, including our clothes, for weeks.
All I wanted to do was serve my country by stopping bad guys and protecting the innocent. To my chagrin, bad guys have begun running parts of the government making it difficult to continue to serve this nation and protect the innocent.
Late in the hearing, Rep. Kelly Armstrong (R-ND) asked, “If one of your really good friends, former colleagues, came to you and said, ‘I have this thing that is being covered up, and I think the American people need to know about it,’ What advice would you give them?”
“I’d tell them first to pray about it, long and hard. And I would tell them I could take it to Congress for them, or I could put them in touch with Congress, but I would advise them not to do it,” he said.

Armstong followed up, “How do you think that solves being able to shine light on corruption, weaponization, any kind of misconduct that exists with the American people?”
“It doesn’t solve it, but the FBI will crush you,” he emphasized. “This government will crush you and your family if you try to expose the truth about things that they are doing that are wrong. We are all examples of that.”
