There’s no denying that the FBI has become more politicized than ever before. They’ve become an extension of the Washington, D.C. Swamp.
And now Joe Biden is extremely nervous after his FBI and DOJ were smacked with brand new investigations.
The New York Times reported over the weekend that the House, with its new Republican majority in place, plans to vote this coming week on a resolution to establish a special judiciary subcommittee on the “weaponization of the federal government,” a subject the GOP has suggested may include examining inquiries into former president Donald Trump.
This is a component of the GOP delivering on its pledge to voters to conduct thorough probes into national security and law enforcement organizations.
Rep. Jim Jordan, a Republican from Ohio who will also lead the House Judiciary Committee, will preside over the panel.
Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, who served as the main negotiator for Republicans who put pressure on Kevin McCarthy to accept the position of House speaker, said the establishment of the panel was one of the concessions they were able to secure.
After the resolution is approved, the subcommittee will have practically unlimited authority to look into civil liberties-related issues or to examine how any federal agency has collected, processed, and used information about Americans, including “ongoing criminal investigations” like those conducted by the FBI.
Jordan reportedly has the power to subpoena the Justice Department for information about the investigation by the special counsel into Trump’s attempts to block the certification of the 2020 election due to his allegations of fraud and his handling of classified data.
According to the New York Times, Jordan will also have the authority to subpoena the Justice Department in relation to other politically sensitive issues, like as an ongoing tax investigation involving the president’s son Hunter Biden.
According to reports, the resolution establishing the subcommittee also grants Jordan’s panel the authority to obtain the same highly classified information that intelligence agencies typically provide to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, which oversees them.
This information typically consists of some of the most sensitive secrets held by the government.
Transparency is something our federal government must give to the American people in the years ahead.
There’s a growing divide between the average American and the Washington, D.C. Swamp in the way of understanding each other.
Polls show that the vast majority of Americans simply do not trust politicians in Washington, D.C. whatsoever.
And nearly 40% of Americans believe that there is a Deep State that is working against the interests of the American people and instead is working for political elites.
The Democrats have been pushing back against federal government transparency for years.
Just consider how they refused the demands of conservative Republican Congressmembers that the money being sent to Ukraine be traceable and audited.
The FBI and DOJ definitely have something to hide. And it’s time the American people found out.
