Elon Musk exposing the Twitter Files brought transparency to the FBI’s worst scandals.
Now the FBI is lashing out in response.
And the FBI said two words about Elon Musk that were one scary threat.
So far, the Twitter Files exposed how the FBI backchanneled with Twitter to censor the Hunter Biden laptop story, take down posts ahead of the 2020 election and spy on conservative media organizations like Right Side Broadcasting Network.
The FBI even paid Twitter over $3.4 million for staff time used to censor the platform on orders from the FBI.
Elon Musk revealed the fact that there was a high-level conspiracy between Big Tech and the FBI to rig the 2020 election by controlling what Americans were allowed to see on social media.
If the FBI had this arrangement with Twitter critics suspect the FBI also worked with Facebook, Google, and Pinterest to censor those platforms to help Joe Biden win the election.
The FBI was not happy Elon Musk aired the Bureau’s dirty laundry and brought to the public’s attention an un-American scheme to censor the internet.
In a tirade of a response to the Twitter Files the FBI smeared Musk as a “conspiracy theorist” and claimed censoring the internet of political speech — where no criminal violation occurred — is something the American people should accept as normal.
“The correspondence between the FBI and Twitter show nothing more than examples of our traditional, longstanding and ongoing federal government and private sector engagements, which involve numerous companies over multiple sectors and industries. As evidenced in the correspondence, the FBI provides critical information to the private sector in an effort to allow them to protect themselves and their customers. The men and women of the FBI work every day to protect the American public. It is unfortunate that conspiracy theorists and others are feeding the American public misinformation with the sole purpose of attempting to discredit the agency,”
the FBI’s statement read.
Republicans had a different reaction to the Twitter Files.
Kentucky Congressman James Comer stands to chair the House Oversight Committee next year and in an appearance on Newsmax tore into RINOs like Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for agreeing to Joe Biden’s $1.7 trillion spending bill which fully funds the FBI.
“This FBI is out of control. … Who is funding this? I mean, Congress has to step up in the next few days and say, we’ve got to wait until January to fund these government agencies, or else they’re going to continue to be unaccountable,” Comer declared.
McConnell’s spending sellout cuts off the ability of Republicans to hold the FBI accountable next year.
The FBI’s lack of fear from a GOP slashing their funding allows the FBI to taunt Elon Musk and others with threatening statements.
