Seasoned FBI agents on the trail of foreign spies and U.S. election fraudsters were routinely transferred off their investigations and out of their jurisdictions as political "payback" by the Bush administration. WMR has learned the policy of punishing FBI agents who get too close to criminal enterprises involving politically-connected individuals and companies is continuing under President Obama and his Attorney General Eric Holder.
WMR has learned that an FBI agent in Florida who was investigating ties between a NASA and Florida state contractor, Yang Enterprises, and Chinese intelligence was abruptly transferred to Alaska. Then-Representative Tom Feeney, who served on the House Judiciary Committee, was connected financially to Yang.
WMR has, in the past, reported on an FBI agent on John O'Neill's Joint Terrorism Task Force being transferred to Lahore, Pakistan and then to an insignificant desk job at FBI headquarters in Washington, DC. The agent had been the lead investigator of a number of Israeli furniture movers, including the Mossad-connected Urban Moving Systems of Weehawken, New Jersey, who were seen in and around the World Trade Center before 9/11. O'Neill, punished by the FBI for having a brief case containing classified information temporarily "stolen" in Florida, died while heading up security for the World Trade Center on 9/11.
We have now learned that the Obama Justice Department is pressuring FBI agents in Ohio not to investigate documented cases of Israeli industrial espionage being committed against a number of high-tech firms in the state.
Many FBI agents know that investigating Israeli espionage, industrial- or national security-related, in the United States is a virtual "third rail" that will end their FBI careers.
Under the Bush administration, FBI agents in Ohio were ordered not to investigate election irregularities in the 2004 election -- electoral fraud which handed the state's electoral votes to George W. Bush, ensuring him re-election.
