Bad guys have begun running parts of the government, an FBI whistleblower testified to the House Judiciary Committee.
The whistleblower said the FBI's inappropriate behavior has made it difficult for him to continue to serve the nation and protect the innocent. The hearing gave several former FBI agents the chance to enlighten the nation as to what's going on inside the corroded Department of Justice.
Wyoming Rep. Harriet Hageman, Liz Cheney's replacement, reacted to their opening remarks with a powerful analysis of the corrupted agency. She questioned what occurred to allow for politicization to permeate every facet of the FBI. While there are many reasons, Hageman said the main spark was 9/11 – which an FBI agent previously attested.
"Then FBI Director Robert Muller made the decision to fundamentally change the FBI from a law enforcement body to an intelligence-driven one," she said. "Such a redirection of the very purpose of the FBI resulted in centralizing its power in Washington, D.C."
She said that while 9/11 was a watershed moment for many reasons, our government's response was tragic because authorities found a way to target not the terrorists, but American citizens.
She listed the many ways the DOJ and FBI have exercised illegitimate surveillance authority; from targeting political campaigns and Catholics to creating a Russia narrative hoax and monitoring parents standing up for their children.
"As the DOJ and FBI have become more political, they have amassed more power; and as they have amassed more power, they have become more political. This is a vicious cycle that must be stopped," she declared.
Warning of her candor, Hageman proclaimed that the leadership of the FBI and the DOJ are corrupt, naming Christopher Ray and Merrick Garland specifically.
"They know it, we know it, and the American people know it."
As James Madison warned, we must first enable the government to control the governed, and then we must compel it to control itself. Our government is failing to control itself. If the people don't step up, we're going to lose the greatest Republic that's ever existed in the history of the world.
Convention of States is the solution that will compel our government to control itself. Support the Article V movement by signing the petition below.
