ACLJ Takes on 2nd Whistleblower Client after FBI Unconstitutionally Retaliated Against Him

The American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ), working with Empower Oversight, now represents FBI Staff Operations Specialist Marcus Allen – a highly decorated FBI agent who has been unlawfully retaliated against by the FBI for following proper whistleblower protocols. This comes on the heels of last week’s announcement that the ACLJ is representing FBI Whistleblower Garret O’Boyle as he faces unconstitutional retaliation from the FBI for exposing numerous instances of misconduct, corruption and political favoritism.

Allen is a decorated Iraq War veteran and even won “employee of the year” for his FBI field office; but after cautioning his superiors about ensuring their public narrative matched the facts, his security clearance was revoked, his pay was suspended for over a year, his health insurance was dropped, and he has been prevented from finding other employment. As he testified before Congress, “Despite my history of unblemished service to the United States, the FBI suspended my security clearance, accusing me of actually being DISLOYAL to my country” and “the FBI questioned my allegiance to the United States.”

He further testified: “I have never had the opportunity to defend myself. I only had one interview with the FBI which occurred a year ago after apparent prompting from Congress. In that interview, the investigators towards the end of the interview uttered in response to my exasperation, ‘Don’t sue us!’”

“The DOJ will be hearing from us today,” says Jordan Sekulow, ACLJ’s Executive Director. "We are taking direct legal action to defend Allen. Brave whistleblowers who have the courage to stand up and speak out when they see the government doing something wrong deserve our protection. These brave men and women are on the front lines defending our constitutional republic, and the ACLJ will be there to defend them."
