Jim Jordan seeks FBI briefing after 'whistleblower disclosure' on DC pipe bomb investigation

Washington Examiner

A top House Republican is asking the FBI for a briefing after a special agent came forward with a disclosure about the bureau's investigation into a pair of pipe bombs planted outside the GOP's and Democratic Party's headquarters in Washington, D.C., the night before the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.The message asked, in part, that the canvass "include sources reporting on all [types of] threats" because the suspect’s "motive and ideology remain unknown," according to Jordan.The special agent, who was not identified, claimed that the request was "unusual" because it came a year after the investigation began, and Jordan said it raises questions about the progress and extent of the inquiry. Both bomb threats were neutralized by authorities, but the identity of the suspect remains one of the biggest mysteries stemming from the events surrounding the Capitol riot. One pipe bomb was placed in an alley behind the Republican National Committee headquarters, while the other was placed next to a park bench near the Democratic National Committee headquarters.

Rep. Jim Jordan, an Ohio Republican and ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray on Wednesday saying this "whistleblower disclosure" revealed that the FBI’s Washington Field Office asked FBI field offices last month to canvass all confidential human sources nationwide for relevant information.:snip:
