Republican Congressional candidate Genevieve Collins (TX) explained in an interview with “Fox & Friends” Thursday morning that Republican women are running for office and getting louder in politics.
“Women are doing so much right now,” she said. “Women are running businesses, we’re running families, we’re running board rooms and courtrooms, and hospitals. And, yet, we’re not running our politics?”
Collins told the story of her grandmother, who in 1957 was the first women to run for office in Dallas, Texas. “She was the first woman ever elected to Dallas City Council. So, I think it’s time that women are finally owning our voice and really stepping up because we are really capable of doing so much,” Collins said.
In the U.S. House of Representatives, there are currently 88 Democrat women and 13 Republican women. When asked about the disparity in female representation between the two parties, Collins explained, “Well, we haven’t stood up loud and talked loud enough yet. I think it’s important that women, Republican women especially talk about issues that matter to us, like the economy, like education, like national security.”
She added, “It’s time that we really start talking much loudly and really banging the drum for Republican women’s perspectives and voices to be heard loud and proud in Washington, D.C. and across our nation.”

FBI punishing employees who attended Jan 6 rally by revoking security clearances

A letter from ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH), to FBI Director Christopher Wray, addresses how several whistleblowers exposed the FBI of stripping employees of security clearances.
The letter cites claims of multiple whistleblowers who say the FBI has been purposely punishing those who attended then-president Donald Trump’s “Stop the Steal” rally on January 6, 2021, by revoking their clearances. Reportedly many of them did not even enter the U.S. Capitol.
“While FBI employees may not participate in partisan political campaigns, [they] do not give up their rights to engage in political speech activity,” wrote Jordan. “We have serious concerns that the FBI appears to be retaliating against employees for engaging in political speech disfavored by FBI leadership,” he added.
The primary whistleblower is described as a 20-year veteran of the FBI and U.S. military. Jordan believes the FBI’s actions could potentially result in the administrative extermination of the individuals’ employment because the FBI requires top-secret security clearances for majority of its employees.
Jordan has required that the FBI brief the committee on the security clearances matter by May 20.
