I was employed by a major defense contractor from 2013 - 2020. I observed serious classified security vulnerabilities and reported them to my employer. The FSO and his Security team ignored my concerns. This went on for years, and eventually I was forced to escalate my concerns to the Defense Counterintelligence Security Agency.
The D.C.S.A. disclosed my identity to my employer. I was subjected to retaliation by the FSO, my Security manager, and my IT manager, so I filed a whistle blower reprisal complaint. Shortly thereafter, I learned that all three of them were engaged in activity to bring about the revocation of my clearance.
Prior to learning I was the whistle blower, Security told me there was no Top-Secret classified work at my location. I informed my employer (in writing) that even if the work existed, I did not want to be adjudicated for a Top-Secret clearance, and would not perform Top-Secret work for them. (Their classified security program was abysmal.) However, after learning I was the whistle blower, my FSO revoked my access to classified work, flagged my JPAS record, then submitted a request for the government to elevate my clearance to the Top Secret level! (Submitting a request to adjudicate an employee for a clearance they do not need is a violation of Federal law.)
I was contacted by an Investigator, and provided a long list of character references. As far as I know, she didn’t speak to any of them. Instead, she spoke to my FSO, who provided her with fake adverse information. He then arranged for her to meet with the Security manager and the IT manager who were also subjecting me to retaliation. They also provided fake adverse information to the Investigator.
I learned about this plot to bring about the revocation of my clearance through FOIA requests. I have seen the fake adverse information the three managers provided to the Investigator. I have no reason to believe the Investigator knows she was lied to. She is probably unaware that my employer is trying to manipulate the CAF into revoking my clearance.
I have two questions. Do I have a right to contact the Investigator and refute the fake adverse information she was given? If so, how do I do this? Her name has been replaced by a number on the documents I received through my FOIA. Any advice you can offer will be appreciated.
