FBI Goes Woke

Congress will investigate whether the FBI’s diversity goals are causing a hiring crisis that has resulted in fewer qualified agents.

In a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray, the House Judiciary Committee says that they are “interested in the FBI’s hiring and retention practices and its use of so-called Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives.”

Whistleblowers have said that in order to fulfill DEI requirements, the FBI has left qualified applicants on the cutting room floor while subsequently relaxing hiring standards and lowering barriers to entry “in categories that include physical fitness, illicit drug use, financial irregularities, mental health, full-time work experience, and integrity.”

The letter says that the “FBI’s hyper-fixation on hitting Biden Administration-imposed DEI initiatives, rather than qualifications that make the best federal law enforcement candidates and officers, has created a climate within the FBI that puts the American public and American civil liberties at risk.” The committee seeks documentation about the FBI’s hiring practices and likely will take a chance to grill Director Wray on this issue in public. But that won’t necessarily to anything to stop this.
