    A Department of Homeland Security whistleblower leveled a series of bombshell accusations Sunday in his first television interview, accusing his Trump administration superiors of pressing for manipulated intelligence on three critical subjects: Russian support for Donald Trump, the Mexican border, and the white supremacist threat inside the United States.

    Trump and team lied to the American people about these direct threats to the American people


    Just like Bush lied us to war


    And Ronny rayguns lied about gun for hostages


    Just like Nixon lied about cheating our democracy.



    When will the Republican Party die for all its lies and breaking the economy?

    Brian Murphy, the former principal deputy undersecretary in DHS’s Office of Intelligence
    and Analysis, filed a whistleblower complaint last year — as well as a handful of internal complaints and reports — that all painted a frightening picture of how things were running in the department tasked with keeping Americans safe. “From the outset, there were three things that I was told that we would look to manipulate intelligence on and bend the truth about,” Murphy told George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s This Week. “And I told them upfront that I wasn’t going to do it.”

    Russian President Vladimir Putin approved efforts to denigrate Democratic candidates in order to benefit Trump, an intelligence community report from March found. Putin also authorized a campaign “undermining public confidence in the electoral process and exacerbating socio-political divisions in the U.S” — something that Trump and some of his closest allies readily embraced during and after the election by making repeated false claims of fraud.

    The Trump administration told people to lie about what they proved about Putins actions against this nation


    He was working to destroy the peoples faith in American elections


    Trump helped Putin do that by covering it up and lying to the American people about the threat


    He aided an enemy of this nation to destroy this nation



    Anyone who supports trump and his continued lies is a Russian tool


    A traitor to this nation

    Whistleblower complaint Edit

    Murphy filed a whistleblower complaint[12] in September 2020 alleging episodes of misconduct by top DHS officials. Murphy asserted that DHS secretary Chad Wolf and his deputy Ken Cuccinelli instructed him “to modify intelligence assessments to ensure they matched up with the public comments by President Trump on the subject of ANTIFA and 'anarchist' groups” and to downplay the threat posed by white supremacists. Murphy stated he declined to comply. Murphy also claimed Wolf told him to "cease providing intelligence assessments on the threat of Russian interference in the US, and instead start reporting on interference activities by China and Iran.” Murphy said Wolf told him this directive came from White House national security advisor Robert O'Brien.[13][14]

    He had also submitted prior complaints. In early 2020, he had submitted six internal complaints to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence about the way the intelligence program was addressing Russian disinformation. He had also filed two Office of the Inspector General reports about “attempted censorship of intelligence analysis.”[15]

    Days before his September 2020 complaint, ABC News reported that DHS had withheld the July release of an intelligence bulletin to law enforcement that warned of Russian efforts to promote “allegations about the poor mental health” of Joe Biden. DHS chief of staff John Gountanis halted the release pending review by secretary Wolf. The bulletin stated that analysts had “high confidence” of the Russian efforts, which were similar to efforts by Trump and his campaign to depict Biden as mentally unfit. A DHS spokesperson said the bulletin was “delayed” because it did not meet the department’s standards. The bulletin had not been released as of the date of the ABC News report. Murphy asserted in his complaint that Wolf told him “the intelligence notification should be ‘held’ because it ‘made the President look bad.’”[16][17]

    Murphy alleged that Kirstjen Nielsen had politicized DHS.[18]

    DHS flatly denied the allegations. They said they expect that any internal investigation by the DHS inspector general will reveal no retaliatory action against Murphy.[19] One of the initial counter claims by then Acting Secretary Chad Wolf and other senior DHS officials was Murphy's organization had potentially violated administrative procedures. On April 21, 2021, the DHS Office of Inspector General issued a finding indicating DHS had the followed all requisite authorities to carry its mission, thus contradicting Wolf's claim.[20]

    Much of what Murphy alleged in his complaint has been proven accurate by press accounts or reports issued by other government agencies. For example, Murphy claims about reporting on China and Iran over Russian interference was articulated in the March 2021 Office of Director of National Intelligence's Election 2020 Intelligence Community Assessment.[21][22]

    On Juneteenth 2020, the "BlueLeaks" hack revealed a lack of information about right wing groups and Russian interference in the United States.[23][24]

    Murphy also alleged the threat from right wing domestic extremists was substantial, but he received pressure not to reveal the results.[25][26] On January 6, 2021 the Capitol was overrun by extremists and grandmothers who were part of a pro-Trump rally. Many reporters noted Murphy's intelligence predictions and the January 6 incident, but ignored antifa terrorists such as Michael Reinoehl.[27][28][29][30][31]

    In July, 2021 it was revealed the DHS Inspector General's Office had interfered in the investigation into Murphy's claims. And independent watch dog, the Project On Government Oversight, revealed in a seven page report that the DHS Inspector General, Joseph V. Cuffari, manipulated the investigation in an effort to disrupt the investigation into Murphy's claims. The report states Murphy was cleared in January of 2021 of any wrong doing by the rank and file IG staff, however, the Inspector General blocked the release of the conclusions. The report and a NY Times article further explain the improper interference was conducted for political purposes. The Inspector General and other senior staff at the IG's office attempted to protect Wolf and Cuccinelli from being investigated. The article indicates the whistleblower allegations related to Russia and White Supremacy were among the causes for the improper intervention. Both articles state if Murphy had not been wrongfully removed in September of 2020 there is evidence DHS would have been in a position to detect the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on January 6th, 2021.[32][33][34]

    According to the Wall Street Journal, Murphy had asked for substantial resource enhancements in 2019 and early 2020 to combat a growing disinformation threat from Russia and an emerging White Supremacy threat. His requests were denied by Wolf and Cuccinelli.[35] In August of 2021 it was reported by the press that once Murphy was removed in July of 2020 he was replaced by an inexperienced partisan employee, Joseph Maher. Maher shut-down all of the organizations ability to detect domestic terrorism threats. The reports suggest this led to the intelligence failures at DHS to identify violent online rhetoric in the lead up to the January 6th, 2001 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Maher was reported by the New York Times to have potentially retaliated against Murphy after Murphy filed his Whistleblower complaint.[36][37] According to a DHS intelligence document produced under the Freedom of Information Act, shortly after Wolf removed Murphy, Maher restricted the ability of DHS to collect pertinent intelligence about Russian interference and White Supremacy.[38]
