The FBI isn’t giving House Republicans any answers on the agency’s alleged retaliation against whistleblowers. On Monday, the House Judiciary Committee issued a subpoena for FBI Executive Assistant Director of Human Resources Jennifer Leigh Moore over reports of retribution taken out on conservative staffers with the revocation of security clearances.
Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan, who now chairs the committee, revealed whistleblowers accusations last year that the bureau improperly revoked clearances of employees with right-leaning views. As the lead lawmaker on the Judiciary Committee and the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, Jordan has sought testimony from at least 16 FBI employees to probe the allegations. These employees include Moore, to whom Republicans previously sent three letters. Lawmakers solicited testimony in letters on Sept. 29 and Dec. 1 of 2022, and Jan. 27 of this year.

Moore was issued a formal subpoena by the committee on Monday “after she refused to answer questions during her transcribed interview about the FBI’s retaliation against brave whistleblowers who have come forward,” Russell Dye, a Jordan spokesman, announced in a press release.
Jordan accused the FBI of executing a “purge” of conservative employees within the bureau last fall after multiple whistleblowers came to Republican lawmakers to detail their experiences. “Many” of the employees’ formal notices related to the suspension of security clearances were personally signed by Moore.
