USPS Whistleblower Jesse Morgan Says He Was Interrogated by FBI

December 9, 2020 Updated: December 9, 2020

A U.S. Postal Service whistleblower said he was interviewed by federal agents, describing the process as an interrogation.

Jesse Morgan, a truck driver for a Postal Service subcontractor, said FBI agents and officials with one of the agency’s law enforcement arms met with him to review his allegations.

Morgan said during an appearance on “War Room: Pandemic” on Dec. 8 that he essentially was “interrogated.”

“I understand they’re doing their job. But, so, I give them what I saw, what happened to me, what I had done, and what they want to do is instead of—it’s like instead of focusing on the picture, they want to focus over here and try to figure out how I came on TV. It’s really sad, to be honest,” Morgan said.

Morgan alleges he drove a truck filled with up to 288,000 ballots on Oct. 21. He said the trailer, and the ballots, vanished from a USPS depot after he dropped them off there.

The FBI and the USPS didn’t immediately respond to a request by The Epoch Times for comment; a spokesman for the USPS Office of Inspector General, one of the post office’s law enforcement arms, declined to comment.

During the interview, Morgan said, one of the agents was “mixing up my words or didn’t understand what I was saying.”

“I speak pretty clear. I mean, you saw, obviously, probably, the press conference that day, and I didn’t tell him anything different than what I told everyone that day. But for some reason, it was hard to comprehend that,” Morgan said.

“I give this information, and then what they want to do with it, instead of investigating the information I gave, is go and start harassing my family, start asking questions of my family, how did I get here, or whatever,” he said. “I just thought it was quite interesting, where this gentleman’s investigation took him.”

He said he didn’t feel like the authorities had any interest in probing into what actually happened with the trucks and ballots.

Morgan wrote on Twitter, “I gave the FBI information about my trailer full of ballots and then what they want to do with it is INSTEAD of investigating the information is to go and start harassing my family!”

Morgan previously said his wife got into arguments with him about stepping forward as he has, and that he could lose his job because of what he’s done. Morgan said he didn’t vote in the election, calling it a choice between “two evils.”

“I believe in an honest election, at least. I think the people of America deserve an honest election,” he said in a video released by the Thomas More Society’s Amistad Project, a nonprofit focused on election integrity issues.

Morgan’s affidavit was submitted as part of an election lawsuit filed in Pennsylvania this week.

Money is being raised for Morgan and another USPS whistleblower, Ethan Pease of Wisconsin, through a GoFundMe fundraiser. The organizer refers to the men as serving Americans “by shedding light on the election fraud in the 2020 Presidential election, through sharing their personal experiences.”

Last month, a different whistleblower in Pennsylvania, USPS letter carrier Richard Hopkins alleged that he had overheard supervisors discussing a plan to backdate mail-in ballots for Election Day. He subsequently challenged reports that he recanted his fraud claims following an interview with USPS law enforcement agents.

Hopkins also released recordings of the interview. Marc Ruskin, a 27-year veteran of the FBI and former assistant district attorney in Brooklyn, New York, told The Epoch Times that the way Hopkins was questioned showed the agency was trying “to do damage control.”

“From beginning to end, it’s pretty shocking behavior,” Ruskin said.
