Documents provided to UncoverDC from a whistleblower at the FBI reveal that the Bureau has combined the “Insider Threat” annual training module with the “Whistleblower” training module. This is as the Bureau takes further actions against legally recognized whistleblowers who have provided protected disclosures to Congress. Bureau sources tell UncoverDC that this is the first time FBI training has combined the two modules. It is perceived as a subtle but unmistakable sign from the FBI that protected whistleblower disclosures are considered in tandem with Insider Threat actions. “Unauthorized Disclosure” is now listed on the wheel of potential insider threats, something new to the training.

The group of whistleblowers, nicknamed “The Suspendables” by its members, contacted Congressman Jim Jordan last year. They have provided a myriad of information to Congress on the Bureau’s actions and policies, many of which are antithetical to its mission statement.
It is thought that the disclosures have led to the formation of a new committee, the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government,” after Republicans took the majority in the House of Representatives in November.
Among the disclosures already made public are several instances in which the Bureau has deviated from standard procedure to target Americans with counterintelligence investigations. Also disclosed was the fact that the FBI had its agents change the characterizations of J6 cases to make it appear as though there are thousands of cases of domestic white extremist violence spread across the country, when in actuality, nearly all those investigations originated from the incident at the Capitol on January 6, 2021.
The whistleblowers also provided an unclassified memo circulated within the Bureau that identifies common patriotic symbols and sayings with Militia Violent Extremism. That memo lists Ashli Babbitt as a potential martyr and a group called American Contingency, founded by father and special forces veteran Mike Glover, as a “militia network.” The group had been unjustly targeted—and cleared—by the FBI before the publication of the guidance.


The disclosures also revealed that the FBI directed agents to use a tailored “threat tag” to attach to cases involving investigations of concerned parents at school board meetings. This information came as Merrick Garland testified in the Senate to the contrary and after the National School Board Association faced harsh criticism for a letter it sent to the Biden Administration requesting federal help to target concerned parents. It was later uncovered that the White House communicated with the NSBA as they drafted the letter.

Further inflaming the issue, AG Garland admitted under oath in a senate hearing that he didn’t corroborate or investigate incidents contained in the letter to validate whether they were true. One of the incidents mentioned in the NSBA communication referenced an angry father in VA. His daughter had been sexually assaulted in the bathroom by a student purporting to be transgender. It was later reported that the school board had lied about that incident when speaking to the girl’s parents and that the student who assaulted their daughter had done it again at another school once he was transferred.
Two in the group of whistleblowers, Kyle Seraphin and Steve Friend, have gone public. They have been vocal about the retaliation they have faced at the hands of the Bureau, having been indefinitely suspended without pay and losing their security clearances. Neither had any instances of wrongdoing while at the FBI, and Seraphin had received accolades several months before he was placed on suspension. Recently the FBI denied a request from Friend to obtain paid employment outside of the government. Both have been held in limbo without income since last year as they await responses from the OPR on unrelated (and unfounded) accusations.
