Chris Briels just quit his job in disgust.
Briels was the Fire Marshall for Harney County, Oregon last week but resigned after being told to “back off” after he blew the whistle on the activity of the FBI.
As the standoff in Oregon escalates, the FBI reportedly sent in undercover agents to pose as “militia” members.
The agents were seen lurking around the local armory and then caught harassing locals – still posing as out-of-town militia.
The former fire marshall held an impromptu press conference to announce his resignation and report the events that occurred since reporting the activity of the FBI to local judge, Steve Grasty:
“I’ve been told by Steve to distance myself from this committee of public safety. I’ve been told that we don’t know what we’re doing. I’ve been told that my life is in danger. I’ve been told all kinds of things. I will not be told what to do. I have my own mind, and I will use my own mind, not somebody else’s,”
It appears the FBI has used the tactic successfully as the mainstream media has reported that members of the standoff in Oregon have been harassing townspeople.
