The FBI neglected a critical investigation into child sexual exploitation while focusing on the events at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.
The case of an Alaska man, Brogan T. Welsh, who distributed child pornography and expressed disturbing fantasies, was dropped by the FBI on that day.
Welsh was later indicted in late October on charges of distributing child pornography, raising concerns about the FBI’s priorities.
“Including sex toys that are very small in size and apparently consistent with the body size of an approximate 10-year-old boy, including: a silicon ring, apparently of the type commonly referred to as a ‘cock ring;’ a bag of ‘sensory finger rings’ which are apparently devices for manual sexual stimulation; a very small dildo consistent in size with anal penetration; and the following clothing consistent with a 10-year-old boy and too small for an adult person of WELSH’s size: two pairs of underwear; and one pajama bottom.” wrote the FBI in a statement.
The FBI also explained that “On January 6, 2021, FBI, Washington Field Office, this investigation was halted due to events that occurred at the United States Capitol Building that day.”
This incident highlights a pattern of the FBI diverting resources from vital cases to pursue politically motivated agendas.
Additionally, mistaken identity and political harassment cases demonstrate misallocation of FBI resources.
The commentary calls for a review of the case and questions how many similar cases have been overlooked.
