Former CIA Chief John Brennan promised that Joe Biden would spy on conservatives.
But no one saw just how far the Biden Deep State would go.
And now, this top Biden ally just made a shocking revelation about spying on Republicans in Congress.
The Intercept reported this week that after the Capitol riots on Jan. 6th, the FBI began spying on Republicans in Congress under the suspicion that they are “domestic terrorists.” And, contrary to the requirements of the Fourth Amendment – they didn’t even bother getting a warrant for it.
As Ken Klippenstein and Eric Lichtblau reported, “The FBI relied in some cases on emergency orders that do not require court authorization in order to quickly secure actual communications from people.”
They then went on to say, “The cellphone data includes many records from the members of Congress and staff members who were at the Capitol that day.”
Of course, the liberal media has been saying for years that this kind of spying doesn’t happen.
Back in 2013, Edward Snowden leaked documents showing that the NSA, who he worked for at the time, was collecting the communications of all Americans.
This so infuriated the liberal media, that David Gregory of NBC suggested that Glenn Greenwald – the journalist who published the story – should be imprisoned for writing about it. Doing so, of course, would be a direct violation of the First Amendment and freedom of the press.
Since that time, Congress has passed so-called “reforms” such as the USA FREEDOM Act, which changed very little about the program. And the intelligence community claims that they stopped engaging in these programs.
But information is coming out which shows that’s a lie.
On Jan. 22nd, the Wall Street Journal reported that the Defense Intelligence Agency has been tracking the location and movements of all Americans through their cell phones, without obtaining any warrants.
And now the FBI is being exposed for having spied on members of Congress.
Some have suggested that Congress itself being targeted might spur Congress to take stronger measures against these abuses of the Constitution. But most believe that’s unlikely.
After all, Congress is run by people like Liz Cheney and Adam Schiff who are heavily funded by the military industrial complex and deeply invested in making sure they have unlimited power.
And most members of Congress are deathly afraid of taking on the powers in these intelligence agencies. They prefer to show up to work in D.C., collect their paychecks, and not rock the boat.
Many political observers will be closely watching the 2022 primaries, when Republican voters have a chance to throw out Liz Cheney and other neocons in Congress. Perhaps if they get replaced, real changes will be made to these programs.
Until then however, the Deep State is on the prowl. And John Brennan telegraphed who their target would be, when he stated on MSNBC that “even libertarians” could be considered domestic terrorists and get targeted by the intelligence community.
It’s clear that with Trump now out of office, the crackdown is coming. The establishment wants to eliminate all threats to their dominance and make sure that outsiders never take power again. And the Intelligence Community will be their primary attack dogs.
