So much for their oath

"Sworn agents"

All they are worried about is a job and a retirement.

“This is a great opportunity for senior or [soon to be retiring] guys, not for someone like me. It’d be suicide. I hate to say it, but neither the judiciary nor the executive branch is wielding any kind of effective oversight right now, and the top managers know it.”“You still have a ton of bad people in place. Unless that changes, and I haven’t seen any degree of seriousness on the part of ranking members nor staffers, I’m not meeting with anyone nor willing to be subpoenaed. I’m not coming forward until they get their act together.


So much for their integrity as lawmen of the land.

"An individual, except the President, elected or appointed to an office of honor or profit in the civil service or uniformed services, shall take the following oath: “I, (State your name), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

There might be more to it than fear for their jobs, though that is one factor. But they have seen whistleblowers canned and disgraced, while the corruption they point out goes untouched, laws against retaliation notwithstanding. That leads to a "Why bother?" attitude.

If you have that attitude, then you need to find another job.

But if your retirement is more important....
