Fox host demands results from GOP guest: ‘It’s been the United States of the FBI and that is unacceptable’

Fox News guest host Tammy Bruce pressed the incoming chair of the House Oversight Committee and Reform, Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.), over plans to investigate the FBI for its now-confirmed censorship of the Hunter Biden laptop story, conservative Twitter accounts, and anything else that could potentially damage the Democrats’ chokehold on the official narrative to which they cling, calling it a crisis that transcends party politics.

Appearing with Bruce on Fox News’ Friday edition of “Hannity,” Comer agreed with Bruce’s assessment, stating that the “FBI has its own ministry of propaganda” and “anyone who cares about free speech should be outraged.”

“Whether you are a Republican or Democrat, this has to stop,” Comer said. “This has to be a top priority for the Republican majority in January.”

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

The comments come in the wake of the sixth installment of the so-called “Twitter Files,” written by journalist Matt Taibbi.

As American Wire News reported, Taibbi detailed on Friday evening the extent to which the FBI inserted itself into Twitter’s daily dealings to manipulate the news and advance the left’s agenda.

Following the publication of Taibbi’s lengthy thread, Rep. Matt Gaetz tweeted to “clear your calendar.”

But investigating the FBI isn’t enough, and Bruce wanted to be sure Comer knows it.

“I trust though, that you are going to expand this beyond Twitter,” she told the Kentucky Rep. “You mentioned Google, you mentioned perhaps Facebook/Meta in general with Instagram. 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 gonna expand this investigation?”

“This is going to take several committees focusing a lot of attention,” replied Comer.

“Big tech is gonna be a priority for the Republican majority,” he continued. “The FBI was involved in censorship in every form or fashion, whether it’s with the election, whether it’s with the Joe Biden agenda. They have stepped in where the government does not belong and this has to end. People have to be held accountable.”

He then explained that “we are going to have to start with the budget.”

“That is what is so frustrating about what’s going on right now in Washington–” he said, before Bruce, unwilling to hear any excuses, cut him off.

“Sir, let me stop you right there,” she interjected. “We want to see things get done.”

“We know you can pull everything into the swamp and everything into the volcano, and it’s about the budget,” she stipulated. “We want some results. And at this point, it’s been the United States of the FBI and that is unacceptable to the American people and I love that you understand this.”
