Former President Donald Trump has called for investigations into the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) following the evidence unearthed from Elon Musk’s Twitter Files. Trump made the announcement in a video uploaded to Rumble which can be viewed below.
“The now-famous Twitter Files have proven beyond all doubt that the corrupt officials at the FBI have been coordinating a massive censorship, surveillance, and propaganda campaign against the American people and, frankly, against me,” Trump stated. “In the most recent and notorious example, the FBI worked to stop the truth from being told about the Biden family’s criminality. They worked so hard to stop it from coming out and the corruption prior to the 2020 election.”
“But the censorship of the ‘Laptop From Hell’ is only the beginning of the story about the weaponization of government against free speech,” the former president continued. “We must have free speech in our country.”
“As recent reporting shows, the FBI and other rogue agencies have been systematically colluding with former national security officials placed in high positions at Twitter, and very likely other companies, to advance their censorship regime,” Trump claimed.
Trump expounded in great detail, “This anti American effort and a very illegal effort that has been working to silence dissenting opinions on COVID and crucial issues on public health and on the election and elections in the future. They suppress doctors and health experts who dared to question approved public health narratives. They censored voices who criticized school closures lockdowns and mandates, and they even banned people simply for stating proven scientific facts. And anything bad about China. They didn’t want out, but anything bad about Biden and the Biden crime family and that’s what it was just looking at the laptop from ill they didn’t want that coming out under any circumstances. What they wanted coming out was anything bad about your favorite president, me? anything bad about Trump? Put it out, even if it’s not true, but this all had nothing to do with science. This had nothing to do with saving lives. It had everything to do with politics or a sick ideology. This was about government working with powerful corporations to seize power over you, the American people, and we can’t let that continue. The Twitter files prove that we urgently need my plan to dismantle the illegal censorship regime, a regime like nobody’s ever seen in the history of our country or most other countries for that matter, to prosecute the perpetrators for their crimes. And to restore free speech for all Americans so important. We need a free press. We need free speech. We need fair elections, and we need borders.
Trump alleged in his comments the government was colluding with corporations to infringe upon the freedom of speech of American citizens. He laid out a plan to counter this, vowing to prevent this from happening when he is elected again.
“The new Congress should immediately hold hearings to investigate the role of the FBI and other federal agencies in censoring lawful speech. Congressional leaders should promptly issue subpoenas in furtherance of this goal,” Trump said.
He also said it would be necessary for a “7-year cooling off period before any employee of these powerful agencies is allowed to take a job at a major platform. When I’m president, we will take back our freedoms, we will take back our country.”
