What do we know about FBI Agent Timothy Thibault?

Media outlets are reporting that Tim Thibault — FBI Washington Field Office Assistant Special Agent in Charge — was escorted from bureau premises on Friday.

At least one source says that the removal of Thibault is the result of whistleblower claims that he showed political bias in his handling of politically sensitive investigations.

Eyewitnesses say that Mr. Thibault was seen exiting the FBI on Friday accompanied by a few ‘headquarters-looking types.’

More recent reports state that Thibault abruptly resigned, but that the resignation was forced.

Washington Times

As we know, there have been numerous reports in recent months leading up to the Mar-A-Lago raid of FBI whistleblowers reaching out to Congressional offices complaining of a political environment that allegedly sought to downplay negative news about the president’s son Hunter Biden and his now infamous laptop. GOP Senator from Iowa Chuck Grassley, the ranking Republican member on the Senate Judiciary Committee, wrote a letter July 25 to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland detailing the allegations he said were voluminous and consistent enough to be credible.

In October 2020, one month before the election, “an avenue of derogatory Hunter Biden reporting was ordered closed” by a senior FBI agent at the bureau’s Washington Field office. An earlier letter from Grassley identified the agent as Timothy Thibault.

“[T]he allegations provided to my office appear to indicate that there was a scheme in place among certain FBI officials to undermine derogatory information connected to Hunter Biden by falsely suggesting it was disinformation,” Grassley claimed.

He said whistleblowers from federal law enforcement came forward to his office after a May 31 letter he had written noted a “pattern of active public partisanship in his then public social media content,” in reference to Thibault.

In that May 31 letter, Grassley also accused Thibault of likely violations of “[f]ederal laws, regulations and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) guidelines.”

“Whistleblowers have reported to me, that although the FBI and Justice Department maintain policies dictating specific standards requiring substantial factual predication to initiate an investigation, Thibault and other Justice Department and FBI employees failed to comply with these requirements.”

FBI whistleblowers seem to have fingered Thibault as the partisan hack protecting Hunter. The FBI, we now know, were recently identified by Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg as the reason Facebook downplayed the laptop story pre-election because the social media company had the impression the laptop story was considered misinformation. But it turns out Thibault has also been involved in some other interesting work on behalf of the agency. Here’s a clip from the FBI Portland twitter account in which Thibault, rather hilariously in hindsight, talks about what the FBI had been doing to combat election fraud.

Excuse me for being suspicious, but I wonder if Tim Thibault isn’t the ‘fall guy’ who is taking the rap to cover for others. Someone who will be rewarded later and quietly for his cooperation. It doesn’t seem likely that one FBI Agent planned and executed the 2020 election fraud so that Joe Biden would ‘win’ the Presidency. And what other anti-MAGA activities might he be involved in?

    Thibault is a sacrificial lamb! He represents what’s in his chain of command! This goes all the way up to Biden! The core (FBI) is rotten from top to bottom. Tear it down and let the U S Marshall’s take over. Then rebuild the core from the ground up, not from the top down!

    That may be the goal, but the last paragraph of the Grassley quote mentions “Thibault and other Justice Department and FBI employees”.
    One fall guy shouldn’t cut it.

      I guess we will see. What I meant is that he is the fall guy for the people above him in rank, either in the FBI/DOJ or elsewhere in the Executive Branch.

      ADD: Others not currently in government could also be implicated.

  5. When this first came out – my thought was….”oh, here’s the lower level flunky chosen to fall on his sword to cover for the REAL perps.”
    It’s always the way.
