The FBI to ‘Face a Reckoning’ After the Midterms


It’s coming. Republicans are now certain to retake the House, and possibly the Senate – which means that the House Judiciary Committee Republicans will be investigating both the FBI and Department of Justice for their reported partisan abuse of power and the agencies’ attempt to criminalize constitutionally protected rights of American citizens.

All of this comes on the heels of a number of disturbing revelatons, including a recently released 1,000-page report which includes a whistleblower accounts of “a rampant culture of unaccountability, manipulation, and abuse at the highest level.”

And as the evidence shows, that’s no exaggeration. 

In a letter sent by Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan (R) to U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland and FBI Director Christopher Wray, Congress – requesting a number of documents pertaining to the DOJ’s hyper-politicized investigations. The House report entitled FBI Whistleblowers: What Their Disclosures Indicate About the Politicization of the FBI And Justice Department, points to blatant political corruption at the highest levels of the FBI, and the DOJ, including whistleblower testimonies which detail, “allegations of political bias by the FBI’s senior leadership and misuses of the agency’s federal law-enforcement powers.”

Based on this, and also the recent story leaked to The Intercept which shows the FBI colluding with Big Tech firms to enforce a new regime political censorship – including meddling in the 2020 US Presidential Elections by working to systematically bury the infamous Hunter Biden Laptop story in advance of the election, it’s now certain there will be a reckoning when power changes hands in Congress.

And that’s just the beginning…

Writer Roger Kimball from the Spectator says…

People are not about to forget what the politicians and their bureaucrats just did to them. And if they do not forget, neither will they forgive.

Nor are they going to forget what the FBI has done and is doing to us. The dawn raids against non-violent political rivals of the regime and pro-life activists, the nationwide dragnets to nab people who protested against the 2020 election, the spying on Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign, manufacture of forged evidence in order to mobilize the awesome surveillance apparatus of the state against American citizens and undermine Trump’s presidency. The bill of indictment is long and damning. How long? More than a thousand pages in its first iteration, which GOP members of House Judiciary Committee dropped on Friday under the title “FBI Whistleblowers: What Their Disclosures Indicate About the Politicization of the FBI and Justice Department.”

What they indicate is an agency that has gone rogue and should be dismantled. This has been a theme sounding for more than a years now. Roger L. Simon, writing for the Epoch Times, said that the FBI, like ancient Carthage, must be destroyed. Holman Jenkins, writing for the Wall Street Journal, said that the agency had to be abolished. I’ve argued the same case several times, here, for example, and here. In my column for the December Speccie, I suggest that FBI be relocated to Kansas City and have its budget cut by 75 percent. “Then,” I write, “it should be taken apart altogether,” not least because “a national police is probably unconstitutional certainly un-American”

With few exceptions, the consensus is that the Bureau is beyond reformation or reclamation. Friday’s lengthy J’Accuse underscores the moral bankruptcy and corruption of the FBI.

Its opening statement provides a bracing summary:

The Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the stewardship of Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland, is broken. The problem lies not with the majority of front-line agents who serve our country, but with the FBI’s politicized bureaucracy. The problem lies, for example, with the FBI hierarchy that spied on President Trump’s campaign and ridiculed conservative Americans. The problem lies with FBI bureaucrats who altered and mischaracterized evidence to federal courts, circumvented safeguards and exploited weaknesses in policies governing investigations and informants to target politically disfavored subjects and to protect favored ones. The problem lies with the FBI structure that centralizes high-profile cases in DC, in the hands of politicized actors with politicized incentives. Quite simply, the problem — the rot within the FBI — festers in and proceeds from Washington.

There follows a detailed exposition, based on first-hand testimony, of the FBI’s corrupt activities. Among much else, it shows (I quote from the table of contents) how “FBI Leadership Is Abusing its Law-Enforcement Authorities for Political Reasons,” how “the FBI downplayed and sought to reduce the spread of the serious allegations of wrongdoing leveled against Hunter Biden,” how “the Justice Department and FBI is using counterterrorism resources to target parents resisting a far-left educational curriculum,” how “the Justice Department and FBI conducted an unprecedented raid on a former president,” how “the FBI stalked a Republican congressman while on a family vacation to seize his personal cell phone,” and on and on…
