. Notes from the first hearing of the House Judiciary Committee's Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government.
The subcommittee has heard from "dozens and dozens of whistleblowers" just in the FBI, with one sitting for a transcribed interview Tuesday and many more expected to do so, Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) said.
The former FBI agents and whistleblowers affirmed GOP portrayals of the bureau as increasingly politicized and centralized in D.C., running roughshod over field offices and rank and file.
- Former Miami Special Agent Nicole Parker joined the FBI from a hedge fund after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and "held out as long as I could" before leaving in disgust last fall. WATCH
- There are now "two FBIs," Parker said, citing a shift in recruiting practices and lowering of eligibility requirements that has transformed a "calling" into "merely a very dangerous and high-risk" job. Honorable agents now just "work hard and stay off the radar" to claim their pension.
The Twitter Files show the agency's mission is now "a perversion of the First Amendment."
Congresswoman Elise Stefanik slammed the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Department of Justice (DOJ), and other federal agencies for their unconstitutional ‘censorship by surrogate’ and election meddling.
. Stefanik questioned Jonathan Turley, a professor at George Washington University Law Center
"Isn't it true that leading up to the 2020 election, Twitter had weekly meetings with not just the FBI, with DOJ, with DHS, with DNI to conduct this unconstitutional censorship by surrogate. We know that because of the Twitter Files, correct?” -- Mr. Turley: “Correct.” -- Watch her line of questioning here.
"The government has a long history of lying to us" and is now working through "their arms in media and Big Tech" to control what Americans can see and say, warned former Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard. "They think we're too stupid to think for ourselves." The ex-Democrat said America increasingly resembles a "banana republic" that threatens challenges to the establishment.
Republican Senators Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson testified on how federal agencies tried to thwart their investigations into the Biden family's financial dealings among others and falsely portray them as "Russian stooges," including through misleading leaks. The 89-year-old Iowa Republican railed against the FBI, media and Democrats as a "triad of disinformation and outright falsehoods."

The House Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, also chaired by Jim Jordan, has to narrow the focus on which of the myriad of examples will best highlight the issue.
On Jan. 22, MAGA Warrior Jordan told a packed Daytona Beach Ocean Center arena that he was going to hold the DOJ & FBI to account.

The U.S. government weaponization of the FBI is clear from the influence operations in elections, to the hiding of the Hunter Biden laptop, to the targeting of parents at school board meetings, to the entirety of what is evident in the Twitter files, domestic social media operations and even the FBI activity in the J6 events.
The FBI issues are widespread and clearly visible. However, the scale of this corruption remains mostly hidden because mainstream media won't report on it. That's about to change.
The House Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government has scheduled their first committee hearing for Thursday, February 9th at noon [LINK].
