A GOP congressman claims that the FBI is lying in its response to the Twitter Files and its reports of the agency's collusion with Big Tech.
Rep. Tim Burchett (R-TN) shared the concerns in a Friday interview with Fox Business Network's Evening Edit.

“Mr. Wray is lying. He better clear off his January. I expect Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) in the Judiciary Committee and Mr. Comer from Kentucky’s committee will have him filled up — his dance card will be filled up. Look, this thing goes so deep," Burchett said.
"For them to even — they’re accusing us of doing what they’re — exactly what they’re doing. … This is how they investigated president trump, they said it was a foreign entity and then that’s how they backdoored into his campaign and that’s exactly what they’re doing with this," he continued.
"They’ve used this to dox people. They’ve used it to censor people. It is at the top of our Justice Department and we need to get to the bottom of it," the congressman added.
The FBI has a lot of explaining to do about the Twitter files.

The connections between the FBI, Twitter and other potential media outlets show evidence that may have impacted the 2020 election and other events.
The details of the Twitter Files part 6 offered specific references to former Twitter leaders receiving direct requests from the FBI to block or ban certain accounts that were mostly conservative. The latest Twitter file is in addition to earlier reports of the government suppressing the story of Hunter Biden's laptop ahead of the last presidential election.
The information is in addition to the mention of ongoing calls between the two groups ahead of the 2020 election.
It is unclear what will happen after the announcement of the FBI's involvement with Twitter, but the news certainly has many people upset over what is happening within our government.
