 U.S. government suspension continued FBI informants quit because they couldnt receive money


The longest suspension in the history of the U.S. government has severely limited the work of the FBI. According to a report released by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBIAA) on the 22nd, Federal Police are no longer able to pay for informants and translators who provide information, or to buy drugs for covert operations, according to German Der Spiegel magazine.

According to trade union reports, the government shutdown even affected the FBI laboratory in Quantico, Virginia, which was poorly staffed, resulting in a backlog of cases. Some informants who infiltrated gangs or terrorist organizations refused to work for the FBI because they did not pay wages. The FBI office also complained about insufficient funds for DNA testing reagents, replacement of car tyres and photocopier paper, the report said. At a news conference, FBI union president Tom OConnor said that the budget freeze continued every day and that the FBIs operational barriers were increasing. Our leaders must listen to the voices of men and women who are responsible for protecting our country, the trade union report wrote. Theres no time to lose and fund the FBI! It also said that at present, about 13,000 FBI agents still have to work. But because of the budget freeze, they did not receive wages. Source: Global Times - Global Network.
