Timothy Thibault, a senior FBI agent who left the agency Friday, was previously accused of numerous instances of misconduct by Republican lawmakers and FBI whistleblowers.
Thibault retired over the weekend after recently being removed from a role as assistant special agent in charge at the FBI’s Washington, D.C. field office. However, government officials have brought forward accusations that he tried to hinder the FBI’s inquiry into Hunter Biden, acted in a “highly partisan” way on social media and urged that some cases be improperly branded “domestic violent extremism.”
Republican Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley told Fox News last week that Thibault launched an investigation into former President Donald Trump “on fuzzy newspaper reports.” He said in July that the FBI allegedly “developed information in 2020 about Hunter Biden’s criminal financial and related activity.”
Thibault was accused of ordering the closure of an “avenue of additional derogatory Hunter Biden reporting” in October 2020, Grassley stated, citing whistleblowers. The agent allegedly went against FBI guidelines by failing to give a valid reason for closing the matter, according to the senator.
