ANALYSIS – Be very afraid. It just keeps getting worse. Under Joe Biden, the FBI is daily being further weaponized against its critics and critics of the administration’s chosen narratives.
Following the disclosures that the FBI was in regular contact with Twitter employees to ensure they censored speech they designated ‘misinformation,’ the Bureau attacked anyone who criticizes them by, you guessed it – calling it ‘misinformation.’
It also called these FBI critics – ‘conspiracy theorists.’
This is a favorite leftwing buzz phrase often used to smear conservatives.
The most recent outrage came when the FBI made a statement to FOX News this week after journalists posted screenshots of messages showing how FBI agents communicated with top Twitter officials relating to reports and potential posts about Hunter Biden.
In its response statement, rather than addressing the valid concerns, the Bureau slammed its critics as ‘conspiracy theorists’ spreading misinformation.’
And one legal expert, constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley, is sounding the alarm.
He told FOX News that it is a “menacing thing” for the nation’s largest law enforcement agency to declare that “combatting disinformation” is one of its top priorities, and then attack free speech advocates for criticizing them.
The Epoch Times reports:
A spokesperson for the FBI told Fox News, in response to several “Twitter Files” installments, that “conspiracy theorists” are “feeding the American public misinformation” and said they are trying to discredit the bureau and its agents.
That statement, Turley told Fox News, is “disturbing” because the FBI has allegedly “attacked many of us who were raising free speech concerns and called all of us collectively ‘conspiracy theorists spreading disinformation.’
“It was highly inappropriate, because the FBI has said that combatting disinformation is one of its priorities. So, it is a very menacing thing when you have the largest law enforcement agency attacking free speech advocates,” Turley, a professor of law at George Washington University who served as an expert witness during former President Donald Trump’s first impeachment inquiry, told the outlet.
The FBI’s outrageous response comes after journalist Michael Shellenberger wrote about the outrageous FBI-Twitter collusion:
“What I quickly put together is a pattern where it appears that FBI agents, along with former FBI agents within the company [Twitter], were engaged in a disinformation campaign aimed at top Twitter and Facebook executives, as well as at top news organization executives to basically prepare them, prime them, get them set up to dismiss Hunter Biden information when it would be released.”
Turley noted that Twitter’s new owner Elon Musk “has confirmed that the FBI paid social media companies to help them deal with what they called disinformation, which most of us call censorship.”
Turley added to FOX that the FBI “were in continuous communication [with Twitter], as were other agencies, targeting specific citizens and specific posters to be banned or suspended.”
“That really does smack of an agency relationship and that could violate the first amendment,” he warned.
But be very afraid, because things are now getting worse.
Now the FBI may also be coming after anyone who points out this clear and demonstrated FBI-Big Tech collusion for being a “conspiracy theorist” spreading “misinformation.”

Time for a civil war. The only way to solve an out of control government. The whole organization has gone to hell! Two tiered Justice System doesn’t work.
I think after all the attempts to silence or kill Trump have now proven to be one sided frauds that have failed and our media has also failed and yet to admit it. They are now rendered. Useless !! Liars!!
Facts and truth that expose the constant lies and crimes of the DNC/CIA/NSA/FBI/IRS/DHS MSM, State Dept./Big Tech and Deep State Marxist Cabal.
Fk the FBI traitors!
Cats out of the bag assholes. WE ALL KNOW. YOURE ALL CORRUPT SCUM. Can’t wait till you start shooting at each other. One will break, than another. Those who don’t will the price WRAY pays. Death row.
What can be done? Is there no one powerful enough to correct this????
Are all the justice systems involved in this??
It did not just start, Obama’s AG said he was
Obama’s wing man. Nothing was said to correct that.
Are they all a part of the Democratic Party??
A lot of these people need to be fired for our
Constitutional Republic is going to survive??????
Hope it doesn’t take AN ACTUAL REVOLUTION to end this DISGRACEFUL MISCARRIAGE OF JUSTICE!🇺🇸
It will ONLY be when the DNC is barred from EVER participating in ANY FEDERAL ELECTION and the ILLEGITIMATE POTUS JOE BIDEN AND HIS PEDOFILE SON ARE BOTH CHARGED WITH HIGH TREASON RESULTING IN SWIFT DROP/SWING JUSTICE that WE will know OUR Country is safe.
There are some harsh comments here BUT this is where we are headed as long as this corrupt administration is in power. Of course, this is how they got in power in the first place. This will not end well. And I for one will not let my grandchildren lose their freedom and their opportunities that we all HAD. Take that to the bank. It will cash.
FBI was source of misinformation day 1
The FBI spreads more lies and disinformation than Fox News could ever do. The DOJ/FBI are acting more like the Gestapo or the Soviet Secret Police than the top Federal law enforcement agency that they used to be.
Can’t imagine how much the FBI hates our country to keep betraying it the way it is doing. Hopefully it is just the top leadership rather than the agents themselves, but sadly I don’t think so
The FBI knows who butters their bread, and for that matter so does the whole federal swamp, they have chosen their enemies and their enemies are the tax paying citizens! Or should we be called their slaves?
Vote democrat and remain their Slaves.
It’s looking more and more like the FBI is becoming the enemy of our country. If we can survive another 2 years of Democrat criminal activity, maybe a Republican President will clean house. But I don’t see the Republicans being able to counter the rampant voter fraud the Democrats are using to stay in power.
JUST WONDERING, CAN THE HOUSE TAKE CARE OF THIS PROBLEM NOW THAT THE REPUBLICANS TAKE CONTROL OF THE HOUSE. ???????
