New House Subcommittee Takes Aim at ‘Weaponized’ Federal Agencies

ANALYSIS – LONG OVERDUE – The new Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government will soon be investigating federal agencies that have abused their power and violated Americans’ rights.

The spotlight should be especially focused on those federal agencies in the law enforcement and intelligence arenas. 

As I have repeatedly argued, this subcommittee is long overdue and badly needed, as the always growing behemoth that is our federal government has in recent years been fully weaponized for partisan gain and abused citizens of all stripes.

The active partisan involvement by the FBI in helping cover up Hunter Biden’s laptop, along with current and retired senior officials in the intelligence community working to discredit the laptop, should be front and center of these investigations.

As should the entire Hillary Clinton campaign contrived Trump-Russia-collusion hoax.

More recently, new bombshells of this vast federal overreach and abuse have been dropped by Elon Musk’s ‘Twitter Files’ expose’.

These files show a deep unconstitutional collusion between the FBI and a multitude of federal agencies and Big Tech, especially Twitter to censor and block online content posted and read by millions of Americans.

This illegal activity violating Americans’ first amendment rights is also a huge concern.

According to The Epoch Times:

For now, the subcommittee will specifically look at abuses by the Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI, the legality of vaccine mandates, disinformation about conservative-sponsored election security laws, and censorship by big tech firms under government pressure, according to subcommittee members.

While created by Republicans the new select subcommittee has a broad mandate. It will be chaired by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio).

Since its creation, some Democrats have called the panel a Republican ploy to deflect from ongoing investigations into the Jan. 6 Capitol breach and former President Donald Trump.

On January 10, Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass.) using every leftist talking point and incendiary partisan term he could muster, called it “nothing more than a deranged ploy by the MAGA extremists who have hijacked the party and want to use taxpayer money to push their far-right conspiracy nonsense.”

Republican subcommittee members dismissed these allegations, with one congressman saying that this vast federal overreach which they will be investigating represents “the signature abuse of power of our time,” in much the same way Watergate defined another era.

ET adds:

The new panel will examine how these abuses happened, how to correct them, and how to make sure the abuses won’t happen again, subcommittee member Rep. Mike Johnson told The Epoch Times.

“Since the beginning of the Biden administration, some federal agencies designed to serve and keep Americans safe have instead been turned against them,” he said.

“This fact is beyond dispute. The Biden Administration has used counterterrorism resources against the parents of school children, raided the homes of political opponents, targeted conservative states over their election integrity laws, inflated domestic extremism statistics, and instituted illegal vaccine mandates, just to name a handful of examples,” he added.

However, the members emphasized that the subcommittee won’t be limited to investigating specific abuses, like the Russian collusion hoax or specific agencies.

“We have a very broad charter. We’re not limited to [investigating the] DOJ and FBI,” said Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.).

That is a good thing, because the abuse and corruption at our federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies extends far beyond the DOJ and the FBI.

  1. The only way to clean up the federal agencies is to bring charges on all that were involved in the Russia conspiracy and even some DemocRAT Politicians should be charged! If found guilty at least 10 years in prison and loss of benefits and when released I media jobs and can not work for any company doing business with the government! Anything less will just produce more criminal activity!

  2. January 6 was caused by one person who had charge of up to 20,000 National Guard troops at her disposal but there was an important meeting on the 2020 election at the Capital and the person did not know if the Republicans had information on the stolen election! So Pelosi did not want that meeting to take place so the DemocRAT criminal organization, ANTFA was called in and Pelosi did not call up the National Guard! She is the cause of JANUARY 6 Capital destruction! Thanks to Musk he had Twitter files that showed that big tech, media and federal employees stole the election.

  3. Excellent Comment. So what law could we use? I believe a fair case could be made for a charge of SEDITION.

    The law states in 18 U.S. Code § 2384 – Seditious conspiracy;

    “If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.”

    Considering the use of the FBI and other quasi-police agencies against Americans I believe a case can be made that the use of force was used to overthrow the constitutional functions of the federal government by those in the Obama/Biden administrations and in the Deep State.

    Then there’s the issue of 18 U.S. Code § 242 – Deprivation of rights under color of law;

    “Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or to different punishments, pains, or penalties, on account of such person being an alien, or by reason of his color, or race, than are prescribed for the punishment of citizens, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if bodily injury results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.”

    Also, there is 18 U.S. Code § 2384 – Seditious conspiracy;

    “If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.”

    Sadly, we can’t use 18 U.S. Code § 2381 – Treason;

    “Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”

    The reason we can’t use it is because the SCOTUS in a couple of rulings has stated that TREASON can only occur during a time of constitutionally declared war. Before finding that out, I had advocated that Obama, Panetta, and Clinton be tried for treason over the illegal smuggling of arms to our avowed terrorist enemies in Syria so as to overthrow Pres. al-Assad through our consulate in Benghazi. It resulted in our loss of an Ambassador, a number of US personnel, loss of classified documents through a coverup delay by the FBI, and the killing of a foreign leader.

    Thanks.

  4. Just add to Recce1’s comments:

    The FBI agents and staff that instigated and masterminded the Governor Whitmer kidnapping should get a minimum prison sentence not to be less than that received by any of the civilian people entrapped by the FBI; and

    President Biden needs to be deposed under oath to expound on his statement during the Presidential campaign regarding having “established the biggest and the best fraud organization”. Clinton was not sued but had to testify through a deposition. If Biden claims loss of memory, it should be the end of times for his presidency.

  5. You have laid out a plan of action. now lets see if you have the courage to carry through. I doubt it, simply because of self preservation. I believe you are not willing to take the hits necessary to accomplish your goals as laid out above.

  6. Reece1 is dead on correct. In all respects.
    Well researched and thought out points.
    However, the missing piece of the puzzle is, there is no forum in which these arguments could be heard. The courts have repeatedly rejected perfectly justified claims that should have been considered. Here in lies the problem. Perfectly crafted laws (codes) cannot be supported unless real people adhere to and abide by them. I am not a student of law, but common sense tells me that those that are, refuse to follow it. i.e. no one is doing their appointed jobs.
    Don’t know where we go from here, and I’ve thought that for about 6 years. But, as Jerry Reed said in his famous line in Smokey and the Bandit…… “Hang on to your ass Fred!!!”
