Jim Jordan: ‘Power Of The Purse’ Will Be Used To Curb FBI Abuses
(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – The FBI has become totally weaponized by the left and its partisan efforts have only become more brazen and obvious since Joe Biden took office.
Americans are sick of the unchecked corruption, especially as the Biden regime uses the FBI to harass and persecute political dissidents.
Now there have been so many revelations of political scheming and chicanery that many Republicans in Congress are attempting to take action so that Americans can finally see justice.
On Thursday, Republican Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio told Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo that it’s time for Congress to use the “power of the purse” to address the FBI’s laundry list of power abuses. The most recent being a partisan move to protect the Biden regime by refusing to produce a subpoenaed document involving allegations of criminal activity by then-vice president Joe Biden.
“Where we ultimately have authority is the power of the purse… you are not going to get money for certain things, you can’t use money for certain things, we are going to restrict the amount, the overall amount, we may cut how much goes there,” Jordan told Bartiromo. “We have to look at all those factors.”
On May 3, Republican Rep. James Comer (KY) and Sen. Chuck Grassley (Iowa) wrote to FBI Director Christopher Wray and demanded the agency hand over a document detailing what a whistleblower claims was a criminal bribery scheme involving a foreign national and Joe Biden.
The subpoena was issued by the House Oversight Committee on May 3 to Wray for FD-1023 forms created in June 2020 that mention Joe Biden and an alleged bribe in the amount of $5 million. The FBI has refused to hand over the document.
On top of this blatant protection of Joe Biden, the agency has also come under fire for their partisan persecution of pro-life advocates and concerned parents who speak at and/or protest school board meetings. The FBI has been exposed as being involved in the censorship of American citizens via social media based on documents released to journalist Matt Taibbi from Elon Musk after Musk acquired Twitter. As if that wasn’t enough, journalist Michael Schellenberger also reported that the FBI paid Twitter nearly $3.5 million for the time the company spent responding to requests from the bureau. The FBI also worked with Twitter and other social media and Big Tech companies to suppress the Hunter Biden laptop story prior to the 2020 election. In other words, they engaged in election interference.

13. They did the same to Facebook, according to CEO Mark Zuckerberg. “The FBI basically came to us [and] was like, ‘Hey… you should be on high alert. We thought that there was a lot of Russian propaganda in 2016 election. There's about to be some kind of dump similar to that.'" pic.twitter.com/yPGP8nYgCq

Don’t forget about how the bureau made Hillary Clinton’s crimes go away prior to the 2016 election and worked hand-in-hand with her campaign to concoct the bogus Russia collusion hoax. The list goes on and on. Fortunately, Republicans are fighting for accountability, justice and change.
Bartiromo asked Jordan what are some of the ways that Congress could use the power of the purse to punish the FBI. Jordan responded, “Here is an easy one: They want a new facility that’s going to cost hundreds of millions of dollars, no way. No way we should sign off on that. So there’s one easy one right off the bat.”
He added, “Then we should say, no funds in this appropriation can be used in any way to retaliate against whistleblowers. We should put other restrictions on them. If you are doing any type of encouraging Big Tech to censor, you can’t use taxpayer money for that. We should put all kinds of what we call riders, language that limits how they spend American tax dollars.”
What a sad state of affairs in the US that a member of Congress even has to discuss these things. The FBI needs to be completely dismantled if Congress can’t reign in the rogue agency.
