According to sources speaking to the Washington Times, a top FBI special agent named Timothy Thibault has resigned amid claims that he shielded Hunter Biden from a probe by allegedly trying to kill off a valid avenue of investigation of possible Hunter Biden criminality until at least one month before the November 2020 election.
According to reports, a prominent FBI agent at the Washington field office resigned from his position last week under pressure following claims that he assisted Hunter Biden in avoiding criminal prosecution for his laptop and business transactions.
According to sources speaking to the Washington Times on Monday, Timothy Thibault, an FBI assistant special agent in charge, was allegedly forced out after he was accused of political bias in his handling of investigations involving President Biden’s son.
Last Friday, according to the sources, the agent was led out of the field office by at least two “headquarters-looking types.”
Thibault, a 25-year veteran, had already been placed on leave for a month when Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), the committee’s top Republican, began expressing his concerns about allegations made by a whistleblower that the FBI had hampered its own investigations into the first son.

Thibault and FBI Supervisory Intelligence Analyst Brian Auten, according to Grassley, were reportedly involved in “a scheme” to “undermine derogatory information connected to Hunter Biden by falsely suggesting it was disinformation,” in a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray in July.
According to Grassley, Thibault allegedly attempted to block a valid line of inquiry into potential criminal activity by Hunter Biden up until at least one month before the November 2020 election.
“Thibault allegedly ordered the matter closed without providing a valid reason as required by FBI guidelines … [and] subsequently attempted to improperly mark the matter in FBI systems so that it could not be opened in the future,” Grassley wrote.
Last week, Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, revealed that the social media giant blocked a Hunter Biden article in response to an ambiguous FBI warning about potential “Russian propaganda” connected to the 2020 presidential election.
“Basically, the background here is the FBI, I think, basically came to us — some folks on our team — and was like, ‘Hey, just so you know, like, you should be on high alert,’” Zuckerberg told “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast.
Zuckerberg said the FBI added, “‘We thought that there was a lot of Russian propaganda in the 2016 election. We have it on notice that, basically, there’s about to be some kind of dump that’s similar to that. So just be vigilant.’”
A retweet of a Lincoln Project message that referred to Donald Trump as a “psychologically broken, embittered, and deeply unhappy man” was among the social media posts that Republican senators have publicly questioned over Thibault’s suspected anti-Trump activity.
Additionally, according to reports, he tweeted that he wants to “give Kentucky to the Russian Federation.”
Wray said that claims of political bias made against FBI personnel, including Thibault, during questioning by GOP senators earlier this month were “deeply troubling.”
