According to Rep. Elise Stefanik, a Republican from New York, the FBI will soon be under federal investigation if Republicans win control of the House.
Stefanik, No. The No. 3 Republican in the House, Stefanik, attacked the FBI for being a tool for Democrats to lodge complaints against Republican foes. She demanded the resignation of Christopher Wray, Trump’s FBI Director. She also vowed that Republicans would hold him accountable.
Maria is the House Republican majority and subpoenas will be issued. Jim Jordan has requested that Attorney General Merrick Garland keep the documents. They will be called to testify as we ensure that the FBI is accountable before the American people,” Stefanik stated on Fox Business’s Mornings With Maria.
Stefanik said that House Republicans have received complaints from whistleblowers about alleged misconduct, piggybacking on Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH).
“There are over 14 whistleblowers who have reached out to House Republicans. Specifically, ranking member Jim Jordan, the leading Republican on our Judiciary Committee. They claim that the FBI is targeting conservatives in the internal ranks. She said that this was “politicalization.” “This is a plot to keep the Democrats’ narrative going, and the FBI isn’t doing their job.”
Recent weeks have seen tensions rise between Republicans and the FBI following the Aug. 8, search and seizure of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort. Stefanik called it “outrageous.”
Kevin McCarthy, the House Minority Leader (Republican from California), previously threatened to investigate Justice Department’s raid on FBI headquarters.
The Senate’s Judiciary Committee has been putting Chuck Grassley (Republican-IA) as the top senator for whistleblower accounts. This is after the FBI slowed down its investigation into Hunter Biden’s laptop.
Stefanik claimed that the FBI conspired with tech giants to suppress the laptop story during the campaign for the 2020 election.
Multiple forecasts show that Republicans are likely to retake the House, including one from FiveThirtyEight. McCarthy presented the Republican agenda last week for if the party wins the House. McCarthy also pledged to “hold Washington responsible.”
