REPS. JORDAN, BIGGS, AND POSEY to WRAY: WE KNOW THE METRO CARD THE "DNC BOMBER" USED. WE KNOW WHICH CAR HE GOT INTO AFTER PLACING THE "BOMB." HOW CAN YOU KEEP CLAIMING YOU DON'T KNOW WHO THIS IS?!?!

It's a cover up.

On Sunday, Jim Jordan threatened that he was prepared to begin trimming the FBI's budget over Christopher Wray's utter refusal to reply to legitimate Congressional inquiries.

"What are you going to do about it? We just spoke with Kevin McCarthy about his call with Christopher Wray. It is what is is: Wray is still running the FBI. You've said you want to use the appropriations process to fix this. How will that fix things?" Bartiromo asked.

"Well, in the end, money always gets people's attention. And so, what we're going to have to do is say, 'Hey, FBI, you can't use federal tax dollars, you can't use the American tax dollars for this kind of activity.' We got to limit how they spend the money," Jordan replied.

"So we have to use the appropriations [process]. That's the power that the Founders wanted the legislative branch -- and in particular the House, where, constitutionally, every spending bill, every tax bill, has to originate in the House -- they wanted that body, which stands for election every two years, to be the body closest to the people deciding how we spend the money. So we have to exercise our authority, the power of the purse, to limit what the federal government, what the FBI and Justice Department, are doing to the American people," Jordan continued.

"So that appropriations process is underway now. When will we see a bill that actually, uh, cuts back on funding for the FBI?" Bartiromo asked as a follow up.

"Speaker McCarthy and Republicans have committed to doing all 12 appropriations bills that fund the government over the next several months. I think the first one will be coming out in the next couple weeks. We've been meeting with the appropriations staff, our staff on the Judiciary Committee, to work on how we can limit money, American tax dollars, being used in these ways and deal with the overall budget that the FBI and the DOJ is receiving," Jordan said.

That's the context for this new letter.

As you may remember -- though strangely, the All-January-6, All-the-Time media doesn't seem to want to remind you -- two "bombs" were left outside the offices of both the DNC and RNC on the night of January 5th.

The FBI has said almost nothing about these "bombs" since their discovery. We've never had an accounting of what kind of "bombs" these were, or if they were even operational.


House Judiciary GOP
@JudiciaryGOP

#NEWS: @Jim_Jordan, @RepAndyBiggsAZ, and @congbillposey Press FBI for Information on January 6 Pipe Bomb Investigation.

One former FBI assistant director observed, "[i]t just doesn’t add up . . . [t]here's just too much to work with to not know who this guy is."


Jordan, Biggs, and Posey say there's enough information about this "bomber" to positively ID him (or her -- some people think it looks like a woman).

Here's the key language making the implied accusation of a cover-up:

keylanguagebomber1.jpg

keylanguagebomber2.jpg

I'm not worried about the FBI de-prioritizing this investigation.

Though I can't verify this, what I hear from people with sources on the Hill is that the FBI identified the "bombing suspect" long, long ago and is just hiding it from everyone.

Why? Well, I don't know.

My suspicion is that they know exactly who the "bomber" is, and it's either Antifa or one of their own ringers. And they just don't want to admit it.

So the case will remain Officially Unsolved forever.

302 After 9/11 a fairly senior whistleblower from the NSA came forward and claimed;

His team had put together a new data analysis program that identified Mohammed Atta and his team were in the US and up to no good. Their program was closed down shortly thereafter however because it was ALSO reporting a number of senior American leaders (Condi Rice was mentioned specifically) were on the Chinese payroll.

True? Hard to say but the notion of China buying American politicians doesn't sound very unbelievable now does it?

The problem I have with this one is there would be a lot of people who knew the truth, and most of them would have nothing to lose by whistle-blowing, but a lot to lose by being involved in the coverup.

The junior supply officer who had nothing to do with launching the missile, but would have to falsify paperwork to account for the missing missile, would seem to have no incentive to participate in the coverup, and every incentive to tell the truth.

Plus a whole ship full of enlisted guys with no skin in the game, but a great sea story about the time an idiot Lt JG pushed the wrong button and killed a planeload of civilians.

306 @272 Ignoramus,

He was a specialist on all things involving radical Islam, and he was a federal whistleblower, telling anyone who would listen about how our FBI/DHS was actively destroying our ability to monitor terrorist suspects.

And then he "killed himself."

Yep.

We don't have federal law enforcement. We have an ongoing criminal enterprise with Stalinist leanings.

307 My 9/11 theory
Feds were involved, either in the training, or the visas, or maybe they just knew all about it well in advance and didn't think to put an end to it.
- The "fire can't melt steel" was a cover up to discredit the conspiracy theories
- The payoff to relatives, lessor, etc. was to so no one sued and dug too deep
- The commission was of course a cover up. For incompetence or involvement?

The Brits have been using surveillance for years. Summary, it helps catching the culprits afterwards but there is simply too much information deluge to single out before deeds are already done. Too many false positives versus actual threats.

345 Yes, the Feds were warned about the Tsaernevs and did nothing.

The FBI then interviewed on of their associates who got shot dead after he lunged for an agent's gun. Don't know what to make it.

They were also warned about the Shoe Bomber by his father who was a major govenrment official in their African country (Nigeria IIRC). And that's why we have to take off our shoes to get on a plane to this day.
