FBI corruption revealed in ‘Twitter files’ just ‘tip of the iceberg’
The ‘Twitter Files’ revealed that corruption runs rampant in federal law enforcement agencies and prompted one GOP Senator to call for an investigation. Senator Ron Johnson, a Republican from Wisconsin, is asking Democrats to join Republicans in investigating the threats that a politicized federal law enforcement such as the FBI entails.
One of the “Twitter Files” installments unearthed that the FBI paid Twitter more than $3.4 million while the bureau was pressuring the social media company and reportedly undermining Johnson’s probe of Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings.
“The corruption revealed in ‘The Twitter Files’ is only the tip of the iceberg—there’s a much larger story that needs to be uncovered and exposed,” Johnson told The Daily Signal.
The Wisconsin Republican stated that the incoming GOP majority in the House of Representatives will likely investigate the FBI and other federal agencies.
“I will do everything I can to assist House chairmen leading these investigations. To find as much truth as possible, however, we need Democrats to put aside partisanship and join our efforts,” Johnson said. “Even though the current deep state favors them, Democrats need to understand the threat that politicized federal law enforcement, national security, and intelligence agencies represent to our freedom and democracy.”
“As ranking member on the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, I remain dedicated to delving deeper into these issues and provide the American public information they have a right to know,” he concluded.
The Daily Signal reports on the history of the FBI’s involvement in covering up the Hunter Biden story going into the 2020 Presidential election:
Johnson and Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, accused the FBI of acting to discredit their investigation into the financial connections that President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, has with foreign governments.
On Aug. 6, 2020, Grassley and Johnson met with the FBI’s Foreign Influence Task Force. During the meeting, the FBI brought up “information that we already knew and information unconnected to our Biden investigation,” Grassley wrote.
Elements of the meeting were leaked to the press, leading to what Grassley called “inaccurate media articles during the course of our investigation which falsely labeled our investigation as advancing Russian disinformation.”
The FBI got its hands on Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop all the way back in December 2019, but—according to whistleblowers who spoke to Grassley and Johnson—the bureau failed to investigate the smoking-gun claims that Joe Biden himself was involved in Hunter Biden’s lucrative foreign business deals in China, Ukraine, and other countries.
Worse, some political observers say, the FBI or other intelligence agencies seem to have “pre-debunked” the story, pressuring Twitter and other social media platforms to suppress it as foreign “misinformation” even though the laptop indeed has turned out to have been owned by the younger Biden.
In the lead-up to the 2020 presidential election, FBI officials and others in the intelligence community had weekly meetings with Twitter, according to a sworn declaration from the social media company’s former head of site integrity, Yoel Roth.
“I was told in these meetings that the intelligence community expected that individuals associated with political campaigns would be subject to hacking attacks and that material obtained through these hacking attacks would likely be disseminated over social media platforms, including Twitter,” Roth. “I also learned in these meetings that there were rumors that a hack-and-leak operation would involve Hunter Biden.”

BREAKING: Federal Indictment of Trump in Classified Documents Probe has been Unsealed
Former President and current Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump, has been indicted and is facing 37 counts in connection with his alleged mishandling of classified documents. The 49-page document was unsealed Friday.
The indictment contains charges of the following: Willful retention of national defense information, conspiracy to obstruct justice, withholding a document or record, corruptly concealing a document or record, concealing a document in a federal investigation, scheme to conceal, and making false statements and representations.
Trump announced the indictment Thursday night on Truth Social, his social media platform:
“The corrupt Biden Administration has informed my attorneys that I have been Indicted, seemingly over the Boxes Hoax, even though Joe Biden has 1850 Boxes at the University of Delaware, additional Boxes in Chinatown, D.C., with even more Boxes at the University of Pennsylvania, and documents strewn all over his garage floor where he parks his Corvette, and which is ‘secured’ by only a garage door that is paper thin, and open much of the time.”
Trump declared himself an “INNOCENT MAN” and the subject of the “Greatest Witch Hunt of all time.” The Biden administration, he claimed, is ‘TOTALLY CORRUPT.”
The former president has argued that all the documents in question were declassified when he left the White House. “You’re the president of the United States, you can declassify just by saying it’s declassified, even by thinking about it,” he told Fox News host Sean Hannity in an interview last year.
Trump was on to Biden's deep corruption re Ukraine and wanted it investigated, so they impeached him.
Now that many of Biden's crimes are being exposed, naturally they're going to indict Trump again.
