Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., called on Democrats to join Republicans in investigating the threat of politicized federal law enforcement after the latest installments of the “Twitter Files” revealed that the FBI paid Twitter more than $3.4 million while the bureau was pressuring the social media company and reportedly undermining Johnson’s probe of Hunter Biden’s foreign business dealings.
“The corruption revealed in ‘The Twitter Files’ is only the tip of the iceberg—there’s a much larger story that needs to be uncovered and exposed,” Johnson told The Daily Signal.
The Wisconsin Republican mentioned that the incoming GOP majority in the House of Representatives seems likely to investigate the FBI and other federal agencies, but he urged Democrats to join those efforts.
“I will do everything I can to assist House chairmen leading these investigations. To find as much truth as possible, however, we need Democrats to put aside partisanship and join our efforts,” Johnson said. “Even though the current deep state favors them, Democrats need to understand the threat that politicized federal law enforcement, national security, and intelligence agencies represent to our freedom and democracy.”
“As ranking member on the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, I remain dedicated to delving deeper into these issues and provide the American public information they have a right to know,” he concluded.
