O’Boyle expressed visible and deep sadness in having to testify against the FBI and DOJ, organizations he says “are supposed to protect the American people.” He feels angry that he has been “smeared by the FBI,” a smear that “stands in stark contrast to his life in public service.”
O’Boyle has served his “community and the nation his entire adult life,” joining the Army at a young age and serving in the infantry. He was “quickly promoted through the ranks” and was “deployed to both Iraq and Afghanistan in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom.” O’Boyle served in the 101st Airborne Division and received the Combat Infantryman’s Badge, an honor reserved for foot soldiers in ground combat. O’Boyle was also a police officer before he joined the FBI.
O’Boyle believes too many in the FBI and the DOJ do not uphold the Constitution, including those who are bystanders, not willing to stand up or make sacrifices when they see something wrong. He blames in part the FBI’s efforts to smear and denigrate whistleblowers, destroying careers, “suspending them under false pretenses, taking security clearances, with no true options for real recourse or remedy.” O’Boyle believes it is “by design.” He thinks it is one reason so few are willing to step forward.
“This is by design,” O’Boyle continued, “It creates an Orwellian atmosphere that silences opposition and discussion. We know what is right to do. There were many who too often refused to do what is right because of the difficulty and suffering it incurs. I couldn’t knowingly continue on this path silently without speaking out against the weaponization I witnessed, even if it meant losing my job, my career, my livelihood, my family’s home, and now my anonymity.”
O’Boyle said, “all he wanted to do was serve his country by stopping bad guys and protecting the innocent.”https://judiciary.house.gov/sites/evo-subsites/republicans-judiciary.house.gov/files/evo-media-document/2023-05-17-fbi-whistleblower-testimony-highlights-government-abuse-misallocation-of-resources-and-retaliation-sm.pdfhttps://archive.ph/18trFhttps://www.uncoverdc.com/2023/05/18/fbi-whistleblowers-share-grievous-governmental-misconduct/
