On Monday, Jim Jordan, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, took a stand against the FBI’s corruption. He sent a warning letter to the agency’s director, Christopher Wray, stating that the FBI had targeted Catholics and parents in meetings of school board.
On Tuesday, Jordan revealed that the Committee decided not to take action against the FBI's director. He said that the Committee got some really good information from the FBI, and they didn't receive it until after the deadline.
The FBI was given a deadline to comply with the committee’s request, and it was a nail biter. According to a report by the Washington Examiner, the agency had reluctantly turned over documents. In addition, Christopher Dunham, the FBI's assistant director for congressional affairs, had to send a letter with the documents. This added insult to injury.
In his letter to the Committee, the FBI's acting general counsel, David A. Dunham, claimed that the agency takes its oversight responsibilities seriously. However, despite the fact that the letter almost got him in trouble, he still managed to boast about the FBI's efforts to satisfy the Committee.
On July 17, Jordan had called out the FBI for providing inadequate information in a letter. In addition, the agency sent redacted versions of a memo about its investigation into the Catholic Church. This added insult to injury.
It was revealed in 2021 that the Biden Administration had collaborated with school associations to label certain parents as domestic terrorists. The attorney general at that time, who was also known as Merrick Garland, was the one who tried to cover up the situation. Whistleblowers came forward and revealed that the FBI created a threat tag that it could use to track the parents.
Another shocking revelation came out: The FBI was also eyeing Catholic churches. According to a memo from the Richmond field office, the agency was planning on going after and infiltrating religious organizations. CatholicVote and the watchdog group Judicial Watch had filed a lawsuit to expose the FBI's actions.
Jim Jordan told me his committee not planning to move on contempt charges for FBI Director Wray after bureau provided records he had been seeking.
“We got really good information today. Some stuff we've been after, I am surprised they didn’t give it to us before but good stuff”

Despite the committee's decision not to take action against the director of the FBI, it's still important that the Committee continues to hold tech companies accountable for their actions. One of the individuals that the Committee is targeting is Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta. He is expected to be held in contempt for his collaboration with the executive branch to suppress the First Amendment rights of Americans.
The ongoing saga of the FBI's actions is a cause for celebration, as it shows the country's commitment to transparency and justice.
