David Barton's Anti-Islam Expert Is Disgraced Former FBI Agent

On today's broadcast of "Wallbuilders Live," David Barton and Rick Green discussed the "Islamic Flood is Coming to the United States " with former FBI agent John Guandolo whom, as Barton explained, was forced out of the Bureau after it was taken over by those with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood:

Barton: John used to be the guy who briefed the FBI on terrorism and radical Islamic terrorism and so many Islamic folks worked their way into the FBI, they got him thrown out. They said "he keeps speaking bad about Islam, he keeps saying bad things about radical Islam, you need to get rid of him." But he's part of Team B and he's the guy who keeps bringing out and bringing to light stuff, so John, we thought he'd be a good guy to have examine this because he is a national expert, he did brief the FBI until the Islamic folks kind of took him and got rid of him.

I mean, this is the kind of level of ignorance that is a real problem and that's why John is really good at what he does. And you can understand why [Eric] Holder and others in the FBI wouldn't want Guandolo around there. These are the kind of people they are chasing off because you're starting to see the Muslim Brotherhood actually get in to some of our institutions.

Green: Unreal.

Now that is one way to explain how Guandolo suddenly left his position with the FBI in December 2009. Another way would be to speculate that he resigned when it was discovered that he had been sleeping with a key witness in the corruption case against former Congressman William Jefferson. As reported by The Times Picayune:

As the corruption case against former Rep. William Jefferson was about to go to trial in June, prosecutors learned from their star witness that she had had a sexual relationship with the undercover FBI agent who drove her to all the meetings where she secretly taped and delivered cash to the New Orleans Democrat.

But according to court documents unsealed last week, the FBI and its Office of Professional Responsibility knew at least as far back as last December that the agent, John Guandolo, "had had an intimate relationship with a confidential source that he thought could damage an investigation."

Apparently, the Muslim Brotherhood is so powerful that it managed to get Guandolo to sleep with the key government witness he was supposed to be protecting in order to discredit him and stop him from exposing their plot to take over the United States.
