Whistleblowers from the FBI, including a 33-year veteran, have accused the agency’s senior leadership of trampling the Constitution and attempting to force their field offices into stopping the First Amendment to the US Constitution, and that isn’t all that transpired in DC this week.
House Republicans, who now have the authority to act, have been going against leftist tainted, Marxist philosophy and deeds hard this week in committee hearings.
Republicans have demonstrated that government agencies have become militarized against their own members and are also working against the American people’s fundamental rights.
This week has been challenging for both Democrats and Republicans.
“The parties traded laundry lists of grievances stemming from the agency and congressional investigations, from the Benghazi attack to the Russia collusion hoax, at the first hearing Thursday of the House Judiciary Committee’s Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government,” Greg Piper reported for Just The News, adding:
“Minority Democrats deemed the subcommittee itself a threat to the safety and integrity of law enforcement, arguing GOP rhetoric provoked a “dirty bomb” threat against the FBI after its raid on former President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago. Majority Republicans pointed to their November staff report on FBI whistleblowers and the Justice Department’s politicization.”
They also clashed significantly on the nature of parent-led school board demonstrations, which spurred Attorney General Merrick Garland’s incendiary report concerning “domestic terrorism.”
The partisan dynamics were carried over from Wednesday’s House Oversight Committee hearing on “government interference” in speech, in which Twitter executives admitted that the company prior to Elon Musk used various tactics to suppress certain political content and covertly communicated with the feds.
By presenting their activity, social media posts, or worries as nothing more than racism and domestic terrorism, the Democrats are exposing their intent on tearing apart the lives of the American people.
There was talk about how the Feds planned to convert America’s frightened mothers into individuals who were being compared to the Boston bombers.
Democrats, echoing the Justice Department, chastised Jordan for issuing subpoenas in connection with Garland’s school-board memo. They also stressed the limitations of free expression, with Plaskett hinting that “racist” and “hate” statements are not legally protected, according to Piper, who added:
Former FBI agents and whistleblowers confirmed Republican perceptions of the bureau as more political and centralized in Washington, D.C., trampling on field offices and rank and file.
“It crushes my heart” to see the FBI’s “culture rot,” said Baker, a 33-year veteran who is still “closely engaged” with the organization and criticizes former Director Robert Mueller for transforming it into a “intelligence-driven agency” that undermines liberty across the ideological spectrum.
The Twitter Files demonstrate that the FBI’s mission has become a “perversion of the First Amendment,” he said, telling Rep. Harriet Hageman (R-Wyo.) that “we wouldn’t be having this discussion today” if FBI Director Chris Wray had publicly pledged that the bureau would not use speech alone as a predicate for investigations.
The FBI is not the sole target of the rage.
Congress should also curb both the CIA and NSA for “reverse targeting” methods that spy on Americans by identifying foreign close ties that the agency may portray as the true targets, according to Baker. Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC) observed in the Twitter Files a request from “the fort” to restore Twitter’s data flow to the Fort Meade-based NSA, which was routed through FBI Special Agent Elvis Chan.
