Why Nobody in FBI or DOJ Stood Up to Corruption

The Flynn saga has been an eye opener for many Americans as it provided insight to a corrupted FBI and DOJ under the Obama administration.

It exposed corrupted FBI agents and members of the DOJ in a plot to set Flynn up for a perjury trap. The public got to see their text messages about it.

After the Hillary Clinton email investigation, the Russian Collusion investigation, the corrupt Special Counsel that Robert Mueller led, and the Jeffrey Epstein saga, many Americans are left wondering why nobody stood up and said anything.

How are the people supposed to have any faith at all in our FBI and Department of Justice if the evidence is stacked sky-high and yet nobody said a word?

One IRS whistleblower explains how the whistleblowers, that did come forward, were treated.

William Henck knows this reason all too well.

“No one in the FBI or the DOJ wanted to engage in a futile suicide mission that would put them and their families through years of hell, cost them hundreds of thousands of dollars, and put their pensions at risk, all so that their information could be ignored.”

Here's some of Henck's story.

In November of 2017, Henck was forced out of his job for blowing the whistle on bullying of WWII veterans, a cover-up in the Lois Lerner case targeting Tea Party and other conservative groups by the IRS, and billion dollar handouts to people in connection with D.C. lobbyists.

Henck says he reported all the evidence to his superiors, to internal and external watchdogs, and even to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, the Special Counsel, Congress, and the media.

Not a single thing happened. It all just disappeared.

But Henck paid a hefty price.

In 2016, the IRS Office of Chief Counsel sent me a notice of proposed termination for allegedly disclosing taxpayer information under section 6103. Their theory was that because my name appeared in a Washington Post article, people could read that article and identify a specific taxpayer. Their theory was ridiculous, but it did not matter. My attorney advised to me to take a deal where I could work another year to get 30 years in and then retire. He reasoned that even though the case was absurd and even though my civil service rights had been shredded, I faced an amoral foe with unlimited resources, no downside risk, and a willingness to lie to get rid of me. Basically, the process would have become the punishment. By being forced out early, I lost approximately $400,000, and even more importantly, my family and I went through years of hell. My wife and I were even subjected to a retaliatory income tax exam.

Elizabeth Vaughn notes that he provided nine witnesses but none of them were even contacted. He literally contacted everyone he could think of that had any oversight power.


It was no surprise to him that there were no whistleblowers coming forward throughout all of this.

“Based on my experiences, if anyone in the FBI or DOJ had reported his or her concerns, they would have been retaliated against ruthlessly.

For much more on this story and to learn about who he all contacted without any response, check out Elizabeth Vaughn's article at Red State. It's an interesting, yet terrifying, one.

  1. Vote for Joe Biden so we can all live under communism .Then when all the money runs out you can cry and whimper and blame blame blame . Only it’s you that is to blame . CNN can say how wonderful everything is and you morons will watch more fake news and fall for it..

  2. All you FAKE NEWS people that watch CNN and are voting for Joe Biden. After you run out of money living under communist rule you can blame yourself for the destruction of the great country that we once had on earth . I just pray that we as a people that are great and have more of us that you leftist morons will vote for Donald Trump.

  3. They didn’t stand up to it because it was nonexistent. The corruption of which you speak is now visible in full bloom in the present autocracy of Donald Trump – the worst president in American history.

    By the way, you really need to change your name to AMERICAN BULLSHIT.

  4. It seems terrible the way Mr. Henck was treated. It’s almost unbelievable that no one stood up for him and he was treated so badly. There needs ti be several investigations on this matter.

  5. It is obvious that when anyone tries to expose the deep state corruption they are destroyed. Look what the President has been through personally and the whole country as far as the COVID-19 and now the riots. I am convinced they both have been orchestrated to defeat Trump.

  6. I wonder what all the Obama acolytes will do to themselves when he and all his criminal deep state operatives are marched in front of a judge? Will they burn down the Whitehouse because the truth came out? Will they all commit suicide in despair and anguish? Will they start another civil war?
    All the rioting and looting and burning and statue tumbling and memorial defacing has me stocked up and hunkered down.
    AG Barr has alluded that the Durham report may become public before the election, and I pray it will. There are already many of Obama’s and Hitlery’s acolytes in the list of indictments, including Biden and his son. Boy won’t that play well for the demonrats in November!
    I can’t wait to see Comey and Brennen’s faces on the witness stand.
