Instead, what he experienced was a bureau that shifted from serving the people to targeting them based on their political affiliations. Gagliano believes that what he witnessed at the FBI will be their "Waterloo" moment.
He wrote a compelling op-ed for Fox News, where he shared his behind-the-scenes experiences and how the once-respected agency declined, thanks to the influence of liberal Ivy League elitists who infiltrated the bureau.
J. Edgar Hoover, the father of the FBI, was born in 1895. Hoover hired James Wormley Jones, a WWI veteran who in 1919 became the FBI's first African-American special agent. This was some 29 years before President Harry Truman signed Executive Order 9981, leading to desegregation of U.S. Armed Forces. Yet in 2015, a handful of FBI agents complained about a "wax-like, life-size figure of J. Edgar Hoover" positioned within the New York division's museum. What was the reflexive decision by FBI headquarters public affairs office? Immediately remove the "offensive" statue so as not to "trigger" some fragile agent. The Washington Post characterized it thusly: "The decision to oust Hoover, who was the FBI director for 48 years and served under ten presidents, is something of a cultural moment for the bureau. Once revered among FBI agents, Hoover is no longer universally admired at the crime-fighting organization he built…Today's agents and other employees dislike the history he represents…"
And then there's the Obama and Holder effect. The Fox News piece goes on:
That same year, I also witnessed firsthand the FBI's shift away from objective resource allocation and "calling things what they were" when Barack Obama's "wing man," Attorney General Eric Holder, compelled Comey's FBI to resist accurate description of terror attacks by "radical Islamists" in exchange for more nebulous depictions of our efforts in "combating violent extremism." Contrast that muted downplaying of the Muslim perpetrators of the vast majority of worldwide terror attacks with how DOJ treated the January 6th "insurrectionists" and angry parents at school board meetings — compared again to 2020 ANTIFA and BLM anarchists and rioters. The FBI has also been accused by a whistleblower of artificially-inflated domestic terrorism data as pertains to rightwing groups. Certainly, appears one-sided and partisan, no?
