FBI agent who quashed Hunter evidence behind Trump probe

FBI whistleblowers allege the agent in charge of the Washington field office not only helped cover up derogatory information on the Biden family’s influence peddling operation, he also was “deeply involved” in the decision to open the investigation against President Trump of so-called “fake electors.”

The agent, Timothy Thibault, is named in the letter Monday to Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray from Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, presenting evidence of a double standard in how the DOJ and the FBI pursue cases. The senator wrote that whistleblowers allege Thibault and analyst Brian Auten opened an assessment that was used by an FBI headquarters team “to improperly discredit negative Hunter Biden information as disinformation and caused investigative activity to cease.”
