House Republicans' Investigation Into Political Bias in the Government Might Have a Benefit
Could this lead to something positive?
House Republicans have already begun their investigation into various federal agencies to discover what part, if any, political bias has played into their operations. Conservatives have long contended that agencies like the FBI, IRS, ATF, and the Justice Department have been riddled with politically-biased officials seeking to advance a particular agenda.
Now that the GOP controls the House of Representatives, they are launching a slew of probes into the matter. House Judiciary Chair Jim Jordan (R-OH) is leading the charge and has been collecting reports from whistleblowers in the FBI and elsewhere exposing the inner workings of the agency. Now, a subcommittee that is “leading a sweeping probe into some of Republicans’s biggest political and policy kvetches is setting its first hearing for next week,” according to Politico.
The first hearing will center on “the weaponization of the federal government” which doesn’t give much detail as to what the proceedings will address. “Republicans are expected to use the panel to conduct a broad investigation into the FBI, Justice Department, and the intelligence community” and Jordan told reporters on Thursday that there would be testimony from witnesses, the report noted.
The FBI and Justice Department, in particular, has been under scrutiny for exhibiting political bias in several different matters including its approach to former President Donald Trump since the 2016 election and its handling of issues pertaining to abortion.
Jordan and his team will likely find no small amount of evidence of political bias in the federal agencies it is investigating. Many of these organizations have been rife with corruption since their inception. This is especially true of the FBI, which has been used by both sides of the political divide against opponents.
Nevertheless, we should not get our hopes up when it comes to holding anyone accountable. No heads will be rolling because of these investigations. But this does not mean that absolutely no good will come of it.
While the left-wing activist media will almost certainly ignore or downplay the revelations that are sure to come from these investigations, they will not be able to prevent the American public from learning more about what goes on behind the scenes at these agencies. If Jordan and his crew provide definitive proof of the left-wing bias that exists in our federal government, it could cause people to become even more disenchanted with the state.
For liberty-focused people, this could provide yet another avenue through which we can show the populace how deeply corrupt our federal government has become and help us push people more towards local politics, which can be used to push back against the excesses of the state.
Sure, it might not be a hugely dramatic development, but little by little, as more of the state’s malfeasance is made public, it will become easire to make the case for liberty, rather than hoping one of the members of the uniparty finally decides to start working for the American people.
