A top FBI agent suddenly resigned after coming under congressional scrutiny for possibly hiding information related to the Hunter Biden laptop case just before 2020 presidential election, according to a new report.
Timothy Thibault, a 25-year FBI veteran and assistant special agent in charge, was reportedly asked to leave his post Friday, the Washington Times reports.
Thibault was allegedly escorted out of the bureau by two “headquarters-looking types.”
This was not Thibault’s first time being accused of misconduct designed to shield the Bidens from accountability.
Prior to his resignation, Thibault had been on leave for a month due to whistleblower claims brought up in a letter from Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-KY) that accused Thibault and FBI supervisory intelligence analyst Brian Auten of protecting Hunter Biden in the laptop case.
In the letter, Grassley alleged that Thibault and Auten were a part of a “scheme” to “undermine derogatory information connected to Hunter Biden by falsely suggesting it was disinformation,” the New York Post reports.
Additionally, the letter suggests that Thibault worked to ensure Hunter Biden could not be investigated criminally just one month before the November 2020 election.
“Thibault allegedly ordered the matter closed without providing a valid reason as required by FBI guidelines,” Grassley said in the letter. “[And] subsequently attempted to improperly mark the matter in FBI systems so that it could not be opened in the future.”
This comes as Facebook CEO Marc Zuckerberg appeared on “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast and revealed the FBI warned the social media giant to be on alert of Russian propaganda just days before the New York Post released the Biden laptop report.
Former President Trump has been vocal in his reactions to the new revelations on Truth Social.
“The fired agent who was just escorted out of the FBI headquarters is the person who got the FBI to do a Raid on a home, Mar-a-Lago, that has ‘stirred’ the World and created anger and hostility toward the FBI and DOJ the likes of which have perhaps never been seen in our Country before.”
Trump continued, “The ‘Special Agent’ In Charge of the unprecedented and unnecessary Raid and Break In of Mar-a-Lago, who concealed the partisan nature of evidence to secure the FBI’s approval to open an investigation into the 45th President in the first place, was also involved in the hiding and suppressing from the Public and the Media, the ‘Laptop from Hell,’ the 2020 Presidential Election Scam, and so much more!”
