GOP Congressman: FBI Has ‘Secret Files’ About THIS!

(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – The Republican House majority in the new US Congress plans to use the Oversight Committee to investigate the seeming coordination between the FBI and Big Tech social media companies, of which the Bureau is keeping secret files, Rep. Mike Turner said.

The Ohio Republican spoke on the matter on FNC’s “Sunday Morning Futures” after the sixth batch of leaked “Twitter Files” showed the FBI collaborated closely with the social media platform to have users censored.

According to journalist Matt Taibbi, who is releasing internal Twitter records leaked by the company’s new owner Elon Musk, the FBI and the previous management had “pervasive” contacts.

“The #TwitterFiles are revealing more every day about how the government collects, analyzes, and flags your social media content. Twitter’s contact with the FBI was constant and pervasive, as if it were a subsidiary,” Taibbi wrote.

“Between January 2020 and November 2022, there were over 150 emails between the FBI and former Twitter Trust and Safety chief Yoel Roth… a surprisingly high number are requests by the FBI for Twitter to take action on election misinformation, even involving joke tweets from low-follower accounts,” the journalist elaborated.

In his Sunday interview, Republican US Rep. Mike Turner of Ohio said the GOP would seek to make the US intelligence community accountable for its collusion with social media corporations.

“While we pursue intelligence community to try to hold them accountable, while we’re doing that, Elon Musk is showing what’s happening on the other side with the willing partners, the mainstream media, social media and really exposing coordination that was occurring between the FBI and them,” Turner said.

“Now, it is my understanding from our contacts that we have at the FBI that there are secret files that the FBI has of these contacts they were having with social media and with mainstream media,” he revealed further.

The Ohio Republican disclosed the GOP aimed to get the secret FBI files to examine the Bureau’s coordination with Big Tech and “stop it,” including by cutting off funding.

“Obviously, average Americans are being impacted by FBI actions. They have been resistant to this point, and we certainly intend to pursue subpoena power to expose the extent to which the FBI has been doing this,” Turner stated.

The Republican was asked whether the House GOP had filed a request for the FBI’s secret files on social media collaboration.

“Absolutely. The FBI had, under the cover of saying that they were pursuing foreign malign influence, had really exploded into activities that involved engaging with mainstream media and social media and really impacting what is the normal debate of democracy,” the Ohio representative said.

“What’s very troubling here, in my opinion, this was not based on intelligence. I believe in the end we will find there’s no intelligence that supports the FBI doing this, that this is a campaign by the FBI that really is outside of the bounds of anything we would expect them to do and certainly very constitutionally troubling,” Turner elaborated.
