Republicans Expose FBI...Needs To Be Rebuilt

House Oversight Committee Ranking Member Representative James Comer of Kentucky reacted to Musk's Twitter files.

Comer commented on the release by saying that investigations of big tech companies will reach beyond Twitter to Facebook and Google.

"The entire FBI needs to be dismantled, we need to start all over. We need to enact strict reforms, and there need to be checks and balances at the FBI," Comer said.

Republicans Expose FBI

Come added that fixing the FBI and holding it accountable should start with the budget process, which is why the push for an omnibus is aggravating.

Comer said, "My concern was that this was a rogue FBI employee or two…but what we found today is the FBI had its own ministry of propaganda."

Comer added, "This is serious, what else are they involved in at the FBI? The entire FBI needs to be dismantled, we need to start all over. We need to enact strict reforms, and there need to be checks and balances at the FBI."

Host on Fox's Hannity, Tammy Bruce, then asked, "I trust, though, that you are going to expand this beyond Twitter. You mentioned Google, you mentioned, perhaps, Facebook…are you going to expand and include those platforms, which we also know, at least from Mark Zuckerberg, he too was contacted by the FBI. I think we only know a portion of that, are you going to expand this investigation?"

Comer answered, "Yes. This is going to take several committees focusing a lot of attention. Big tech is going to be a priority for the Republican majority."

Comer concluded by adding that "the FBI was involved in censorship…they have stepped in where the government does not belong. And this has to end. People have to be held accountable and we’re going to have to start with the budget, that’s what is so frustrating about what’s going on right now in Washington."
