Jim Jordan Calls on Republicans to Limit the Power of the Corrupt FBI

Rep. Jim Jordan has called on Republicans to use the power of the purse to limit what the FBI can do following Special Counsel John Durham’s report confirming that the “corrupt” agency had targeted Trump throughout his presidency.

Jordan told host Maria Bartiromo on Fox News, “In the end, money always gets people’s attention … and so what we’re going to have to do is say, ‘Hey, FBI, you can’t use federal tax dollars, you can’t use the American tax dollars for this kind of activity.’ We’ve got to limit how they spend the money, maybe even limit them,” he said.

The committee took numerous actions this month, according to Breitbart:

It released a report on the origins of the statement signed by 51 former intelligence officials falsely claiming the New York Post’s Hunter Biden’s laptop story was Russian disinformation, finding that it was created after then-Biden campaign adviser Antony Blinken reached out to former Deputy CIA Director Michael Morell, who drafted the statement along with former CIA official Marc Polymeropoulos.

It also called in former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper to testify about their involvement in the statement. Brennan testified on May 11, before Durham’s report came out, but Clapper testified on May 17, after the release of Durham’s report on May 15.

According to Durham’s report, both Brennan and Clapper were aware as early as July 2016 that Hillary Clinton planned to “vilify” Donald Trump with false links to Russia.

The Weaponization Committee’s report on the statement on the Hunter Biden laptop found that Brennan signed the statement being fully aware it was designed to help Biden in the 2020 election and that Clapper even made edits before it was published.

The committee held a public hearing featuring FBI whistleblowers last week, including n anti-conservative bias within the FBI.

Jim Jordan said in the interview:

“We have to use the appropriation, that’s the power that the founders wanted, the legislative branch, and in particular the House, where constitutionally every spending bill, every tax bill has to originate in the House.”

“They wanted that body, which stands for election every two years, to be the body closer to the people deciding how we spend the money. So we have to exercise our authority, the power of the purse, to limit what the federal government, what the FBI, the Justice Department are doing to the American people,” he said.

He said House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Republicans are “committed to doing all 12 appropriations bills that fund the government over the next several months.”

“I think the first one will be coming out in a couple of weeks. We’ve been meeting with the appropriations staff, our staff on Judiciary Committee, to work on how we can limit money, American tax dollars being used in these ways and deal with the overall budget that the FBI and the DOJ is receiving,” he said.

The fact that he has to cajole REPUBLICAN’S after all of the FBI’s abuses is just plain sad. These people are self righteous idiots believing in a “genteel” past that was FAKE ASF even then.

If they want to seriously limit the FBI’s power, then simply repeal the law that gave them the power to do what they did in the first place – the Patriot Act needs to go. Until Congress even starts talking about doing just that, they have no real interest in doing anything other than scoring political points.

Remove the enforcement authority of the corrupt fbi.
Take away their guns.

If they want to analyze crimes, so be it.
Nothing more.

And all their findings must be open to 3rd party inspection.
